About This Item

London: Longman & Co., [n.d., 1845?] First edition. Publisher's white glazed paper over boards. Elaborate arabesque pattern with floral designs stamped in gilt, blue, and red, on front cover, back cover ruled in blue with gilt arabesque ornament in center. All edges gilt. Small folio. [27] leaves, printed on heavy card stock, including title-page in gilt and colors, printed on one side only; four introductory leaves, printed in Black Letter in red and black, on both sides, and [24] leaves of facsimiles from the Hours of Anne of Brittany, printed on one side only. Rebacked in tan canvas, covers toned and a bit worn. Ink donor's inscription, dated January 27, 1845, on a preliminary blank. Corners worn, a little light foxing. A good to very good copy of a fragile book. Noel Humphreys (1810-1879), master of Victorian illumination, produced several of these calendars in the 1840s, reproducing portions of various French manuscripts. All are scarce, and because of the fragility of the binding, many copies have been rebound.OCLC lists the present one in nine locations, six in North America (Bridgeport Public Library,Connecticut College, Delaware, Harvard, Johns Hopkins, and the Free Library of Philadelphia). The DNB notes only the calendars for 1845 and 1846, though OCLC lists calendars for 1844 and 1848, as well.

About Michael R. Thompson, Booksellers, ABAA/ILAB

Our office is located in Los Angeles on West Third Street, between the Beverly Center and Farmer's Market. Though we gave up an open shop after more than thirty years, we welcome serious customers and dealers. We are normally open from 10 to 6 Monday through Saturday. Since some of our less expensive books are located in a temperature-controlled storage area offsite, you may want to call ahead of time to insure that the book you want to see will be available. We feature a stock strong in literature, history, Western philosophy, women's studies, education, history of science and fine printing and artists' books. We are members of the Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America and the International League of Antiquarian Booksellers. We have books from the 15th to the 20th century in all prices ranges. We do appraisals for income tax and insurance purposes. We purchase individual books and libraries. Proprietor: Carol Sandberg
