London: William Pickering, various dates [see below]. 165 x 102 mm. (6 1/2 x 4"). 11 volumes representing seven different poets. VERY FINE ORIGINAL DARK GREEN MOROCCO BY HAYDAY (stamp-signed on front pastedowns), covers with triple blind-ruled border, raised bands, gilt spine titling, all edges gilt. Except for the Falconer volume, each work with an engraved frontispiece portrait of the author. Half title present in each volume, anchor device on title in each. Keynes, pp. 37-38. Trivial wear to some joints and extremities, spines just very slightly faded toward olive green, a few volumes with minor marks to covers or spine, most frontispieces lightly offset onto titles, but GENERALLY IN SUPERB CONDITION, the bindings still with their original brightness, and with virtually no signs of use internally. In 1828 Pickering began to use the familiar anchor and dolphin device employed by the Aldus family of Venetian printers in the 16th century, and he had the same purpose behind his work as did his… Read more

Attractive contemporary dark brown pebble-grain morocco, covers with thick and thin gilt rule border, central gilt mandorla, raised bands, gilt titling, gilt-rolled turn-ins, pale yellow endpapers, all edges gilt. Extra engraved title page with vignette, and 12 engraved portraits of society beauties, with original tissue guards. A breath of rubbing to extremities, a touch of light marginal foxing to half the plates, otherwise A FINE COPY, clean and fresh with wide margins in a virtually unworn binding. Heath's Book of Beauty was published from 1832--when it became an immediate bestseller--to 1847. As seen here, its portraits of aristocratic women provide a window into mid-century Victorian culture, particularly its understanding of beauty, fashion, and class. From a family of respected English engravers, author Charles Heath (1785-1848) was… Read more

This is a sparkling copy in a very pleasant new binding of the first complete collection of the works of Robert Henryson (1424?-1506), Scottish poet and schoolmaster, whose strict morality was tempered with compassion for human weakness and a sly sense of humor. His most famous work is "The Testament of Cresseid," an account of the later sufferings of the faithless heroine of Chaucer's "Troilus and Criseyde." Day calls this… Read more
