About This Item

London: [Richard Phillips]. VG : in very good condition without dust jacket. Blindstamp of Worcester Public Library faintly impressed to plate margins. Modern rebind with moire silk endpapers and gauffered edges. Some browning and off-setting from plates. Occasional light marking. [1805]. Second Issue. Blue gilt-edged hardback leather cover. 260mm x 210mm (10" x 8"). [64pp.]. Thirty-one hand-coloured plates. From the loosely laid-in appendix (see scanned image) we know this collated volume of thirty one plates to be a second volume running from plate 24 - 54. Each plate accompanied by leaf of descriptive letterpress describing the cry and trade in the body of the text and, in the footnote, the London building in the background of the scene. Originally issued to accompany R. Phillips's Modern London, being the history and present state of the British metropolis. This is apparently a reissue, under separate cover, of the plates with their descriptive letterpress which were published with the 1805 edition of Modern London. Plates do not bear imprint as is found in 1804 edition [COPAC]. .

About Barter Books Ltd

Since its opening in 1991 within the premises of a small model factory at Alnwick Station, Barter Books has grown well beyond original expectations. Starting off in what was the ticket and parcel office of the original Station, the bookshop has expanded down the platforms and through the waiting rooms, until it now covers over one-quarter of the whole Station site. This translates into an area exceeding 8000 square feet and containing over 350,000 books on more than three miles of shelving. Also the Famous Writers Mural - 40 feet long by 18 feet high, the similarly sized Railway Mural and the Tennyson Installation. The bookshop also sells secondhand videos and music (CDs, LPs, cassettes, sheet music), as well as a small but growing section of artists' prints. And then there are the shop's many extra features! These include an open fire in the winter, coffee and cookies, a model railway running above the book columns, a mini-cybercafe, generous seating and browsing areas, a children's room, and dozens of glass cases containing many of the more interesting antiquarian books. The latest feature is the Station Buffet with hot and cold food and a fine selection of coffees and teas. A final note: during the enlargement process the owners took (and are taking!) particular pleasure in restoring, as they can, various features of the Station. This so far includes the original North Eastern Railway cast iron fireplaces, two of the Station clocks, a drinking fountain, and various waiting rooms. Most dramatic of all, however, was the restoration of part of the glass roof. That was when we all stood about watching as the sun came streaming in for the first time in many years to bring the wonderful old Station visually back to life.
