Description:
London: John Murray, 1887. First edition, in three volumes (ix, 395; 393; 418, appendices, index), illustrated with three frontispieces and several other engravings reproduced from the popular press. Tall octavo (22 cm.), in blue-green publisher’s cloth, gilt titles to spines. The first 160 pages or so of Volume I comprise a brief ancestral history, an autobiographical sketch (apparently much shortened) intended originally for Darwin’s wife and children, and a description of Darwin’s daily habits and practices by Sir Francis Darwin, his son and the editor of the collection. The first of these many letters, characteristically, begs the help of J. M. Herbert, a university friend, in collecting several varieties of beetles Darwin was eager to examine. A commentator in the TLS once mentioned Darwin wrote six million words (more or less, I imagine) in his long life; a great many of them are collected here, arranged topically and chronologically, portraying Darwin’s daily… Read more

Description:
London: J. Knapton, 1759. Fourth edition, corrected (xvi, 160). Duodecimo, in full leather, five raised bands; neatly rebacked. Treats of ‘the way to alter Clock-Work; to make Chimes, and set them to Musical Notes; and to calculate and correct the Motion of Pendulums. Also Numbers for divers Movements: with the Antient and Modern History of Clock-Work; And many Instruments, Tables, and Other Matters, never before published in any book’. William Durham (1657- 1735) was a Church of England clergyman and ‘an amateur scientist interested in nature, mathematics, and philosophy. In 1696 he published The Artificial Clockmaker: a Treatise of Watch and Clock-Work, which included a short history of horology. Derham knew many of the leading scientists of his time, among them Isaac Newton and the astronomer Edmond Halley, and was himself elected to the Royal Society.... An example of Derham's practical scientific work can still be seen in the sundial, for which he did the calculations,… Read more

Description:
New-York: Harper & Brothers, 1842. First edition ([4], 92, adverts), tall octavo in brown soft wraps with ‘Price One Shilling’ and black decoration on front cover. It seems there was something of a race to publish Notes for American readers, some of whom were offended by Dickens’ remarks on the persistence of slavery, the piratical practices of American publishers, and the sometimes grasping crudities of the American way. Dickens’ journey (22 January- 7 June 1842) began in New England and took him down to Richmond and on out to the west (Cincinnati and St. Louis). Of his experience he said, ‘This is not the republic I came to see; this is not the republic of my imagination.’ Dickens crossed into Canada at Niagara, travelling on to Toronto, Kingston, Montreal and Quebec and found the country almost wholly laudable. Inside the back cover is Harper’s advert for the forthcoming publication of Stephens’ Incidents of Travel in Yucatan, dated November 2,… Read more

London: Golden Cockerel Press, 1957. “Selected, edited, and introduced by Gwyn Jones. Collotype reproductions of  8 water-colour paintings and 11 pencil drawings by Lavinia Blyth [Leslie Blanche].” Folio, 80 pp., 18-point Golden Cockerel type on handmade paper. One hundred numbered copies were issued in three-quarter “red and green morocco with a second set of eight pictures and eight of the drawings... 400 [numbered] copies in quarter red morocco with grey canvas boards” (Cock-A-Hoop, #206, p. 40).  Our unnumbered copy of Songs and Poems acquired in sheets, uncut and untrimmed, in eight sections-- Introduction, Parts I- VII, with one colour plate and drawing each.
Text pages 40 cm x 27 cm, plates 38.2 cm x 27 cm (as against 37.5 cm x 25.5 cm). It’s hard to say for certain, but this is likely a late proof, with no markings or notes (or maybe at the Chiswick Press the printer said, “Oops, Christopher, looks like we printed 501.”) Bound, as found, in dark green cloth over… Read more
