About This Item

[London:] Emily Faithfull, Victoria Press, [n.d., 1868] Original blue cloth stamped in gilt. Neatly rebacked with original spine laid down. Some bubbling and wear to cloth. All edges gilt. Dark brown endpapers. Twenty-nine chromolithograph plates (each with a blank protective page) plus 9 pages of descriptions of the plates. The plates include depictions of the Ark of the Covenant with cherubim, enclosed in a 15th century-style border (plate #4); the emblems of 12 saints, including Saint Peter's keys (plate #7); and church windows with the cross, anchor, and heart symbols worked into the glass (plate #10). Ink ownership signature (dated 1889) to top edge of title-page. Some foxing to blanks, as usual. A very good, clean copy Emily Faithfull (1835 - 1895) was Queen Victoria's official printer, the founder of Victoria Press, a founding member of the Society for Promoting the Employment of Women, and a popular novelist and memoirist. Upon establishing the Victoria Press in 1860, she provided training for women interested in printing and employed mostly women as typesetters and proofreaders. Other important Victoria Press publications included The Victoria Regia (1861), which earned Faithfull her position as the official printer to Queen Victoria, and A Welcome, a collection of poetry edited by Isa Craig that included the first appearances of poems by D.G. Rosetti, Harriet Martineau, and more. Faithfull also published the periodical Victoria Magazine, which ran from 1863 to 1880 and often featured Faithfull's own writing on the importance of employment opportunities for women. Esther Faithfull Fleet (1823 - 1908) was also the illustrator of 38 Texts (1872), which was published by her younger sister Emily and included contributions by their father Ferdinand (1789 – 1871); Roses With and Without Thorns (1878); and The Dayspring from on High (1904).

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
