An Address on Temperance

By Channing, William E.

Boston: Weeks, Jordan and Company, 1837. Book. Fair. Hardcover. 1st Edition. Binding has spine chip, major corner bump, pencil eraser size splotch back cover. Exterior hinging looks decent. Inscription penciled first end sheet and this sheet and pastedown have speckling and foxing. Lots of foxing is present throughout, though mercifully text is supple and not chipped or dog eared. The major flaw, worthy of restoration is a gap at the last gutter (twixt last endsheet and pastedown) for some reason, unusually, it affects interior only, outside is fine. From the original collectors notes "Delivered on the request of the Council of Massachusetts Temperance Society, at The Odeon Boston, February 28, 1837 , the day appointed for the simultaneous meeting of the friends of Temperance throughout the world.".

Godey's Lady's Book, and Ladies' American Magazine

By Hale, Sarah J.

Philadelphia: Louis A. Godey, 1842. Book. Fair+. Hardcover. 1st Edition. A custom rebinding from the period, previous owners name done in gilt relief front center. She has written her name in pencil above the January title. Half bound in leather (spine and tips) balance in abrasioned marble paper. The tips, spine extremities have major wear to the leather, worn thru. The most notable flaw is at the hinging of the front board, wholly compromised (worn thru with age) but held in place with the twine of the binding. The fisrt end sheet is completely loose at this point. Pastedowns and endsheets are quite foxed and the interior varies from almost no foxing to rather notably so. The only missing fashion illustration is form January, August is either missing or was omitted, no table of contents is in place for the second half of the year. 1st section 344 pages, 2nd section 204 pages. The apparently hand tinted illustration are fascinating and while some foxing is present. hopefully it will not worsen with good storage, and it does seem wholly age appropriate..

Boston Miscellany of Literature and Fashion 2 Volumes in 0ne, 1842

By Hale, Nathan

Boston: Bradbury, Soden & Co., 1842. Book. Fair. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Apparently custom rebound as the owners name is worked into the front marbled board, half bound with leather spine and tips, marble much scuffed and the hinge exteriors are seamed. It seems likely that they have not become loose due to the spine strings, ie boards tight but gappy, foto to come. Contains the full 12 issue from 1842. While there is some of foxing, especially of the first and last sheets and some of the illustrations, especially at their edges. Some old, corrected dog earing.The text seems overall supple and undamaged, I detect no plate removal. Tissue overlays seem mostly in place. A quick count shows as follows. 284 pages each volume, with 16 engravings counted and 10 fashion illustrations some colored/partially. Many minor roughnesses but a sweet old thing. Some spine top chipping, last endsheet has scars, mars. Size 10x6 3/4"..

Handsome, straight copy, approaching Near Fine condition. Splendid hard cover with buckramesque tough green cloth boards and good spine gilt. Measures 9 1/2 x 6 1/2".
