Description:
Toronto: Ryerson, 1968. First edition (viii, 104). Narrow folio (17 cm.) in dark blue cloth, silver gilt titles, frontispiece. “With a special supplement of Hendry & Leslie ‘House’ Punches and the Marks of Dealers for whom they made Silver.” Early marks on Canadian silver, while derivative of their French and (later) English forebears, developed somewhat casually and were adapted to the makers’ preferences rather than answering to a guild’s regulations-- some were merely decorative and others imitative of ‘mother country’ markings. An as new copy of the Canadian silver collector’s essential vade mecum. Quite scarce.

Description:
Philadelphia: Carey and Hart, 1848. First edition (viii, 231), small octavo in new three-quarter brown cloth over complimentary marbled paper, gilt titles to spine. This copy was found in the publisher’s original plain paper wraps, yet to be properly bound. Charles Lanman (1819- 1895) “was a Michigan born landscape painter, sportsman, and writer...who published several books about his journeys through the wilderness and newly developing areas of the northern Midwest and Canada “ (LOC). A Tour takes Lanman up the Hudson Valley, fishing all the way, to Montreal and down the St. Lawrence to Quebec City. It culminates in scenes along the Saguenay which Lanman, an accomplished landscape painter, especially enjoys describing-- a show of the Aurora at midnight, a sense of oppression on the moody, cliff-hung river. This is the American edition; “an English edition was issued, the same year, under the title: Adventures of an angler in Canada, Nova Scotia and the United States”… Read more

New-York: Appleton, 1847. First edition (208 pp.), small octavo in new three-quarter brown cloth over complimentary marbled paper, gilt titles to spine.

Charles Lanman (1819- 1895) “was a Michigan born landscape painter, sportsman, and writer...who published several books about his journeys through the wilderness and newly developing areas of the northern Midwest and Canada. This book shares highlights of his 1846 trip from St. Louis... by way of Lake Winnipeg and Cedar Lake, eventually reaching Lake Superior after travelling along the St. Louis River to Fond du Lac. Lanman writes about nature from a romantic perspective, recreating woodland scenes with plunging cataracts, picturesque bluffs, and sparkling waters. He [describes] various Native American peoples and passes on...legends associated with the places he visited [including the legend of Winona]. The last chapter is a nostalgic… Read more

Description:

Edinburgh: Caldwell, Lloyd, 1842. First edition thus (xxvi, 586). Illustrated with sixty scenes “designed and drawn [engraved] on the wood by Montagu Stanley, R. S. A.”  Tall octavo (22cm) in dark green publisher’s cloth with gilt titles, gilt and impressed decorations. Lauder’s edition, which came forty years after Price’s essay first appeared, helped maintain the influence of notions of the picturesque (as over against the predictable formalities of neo-classical design) so that, for example, when Olmsted visited England in 1850 various manifestations of the aesthetic as well as its proponents were available to him.  In the ODNB’s biographical sketch of Sir Uvedale Price the matter is put this way: “Essentially, the Essay promoted in measured terms the more radical view of the picturesque landscape voiced by Richard Payne Knight in The Landscape: a Didactic Poem, Addressed to Uvedale Price.... Both authors argued that landscaping was safer in the hands of men of liberal education… Read more

Description:
London: J. and J. Knapton, et al., 1731. Second edition, ‘with Alterations and Additions’ (xxiv, 296). Tall octavo in full leather, ruled gilt decoration to cover and spine, title label largely gone. Folding plate showing proper hedge trimming, planching (small tape repair). Laurence ‘was probably Agent to the Duke of Buckingham...[and] jealous of the professional status of his Stewartry...[and] believed in consolidating small holdings into larger farms and suggested[ed] means of getting rid of the smaller tenants’ (Fussell). The book is organized as a series of maxims, each accompanied by an explanation of the principle it expresses. So, for example, Article IV directs the steward ‘to make himself Master of the Method that every Tenant takes, to raise his Lord’s Rent, as well as to provide for his Family,’ and to that end ‘a Steward should ride over the whole Estate at least once a Month, in order to view both the Lands and the Stock of the Tenants.’ One… Read more

Fussell quotes Donaldson approvingly, “Lisle was a very superior person, and promoted the art of agriculture.... He collected the best ways and put them forth to be imitated” (Agricultural Biography). Edward Lisle (1666- 1722) was a landowner with holdings in Wiltshire, on the Isle of Wight, and at Crux Easton in… Read more

London: Longman, Rees, et al., 1826. Fifth edition (adverts, xii, 1233, indexes), with ‘many hundred engravings on wood by Branston’. Modern dark green calf over complimentary marbled paper, gilt titles to spine and decoration. As Loudon’s lengthy title suggests and as the thickness of the volume attests, this book is one of the early attempts to capture in one place the particulars of all the various sorts of gardening. (In the preface, Loudon remarks that although much new material was added in the second edition, the book is less bulky because the less relevant information, notes and supporting details for example, has been set in noticeably smaller type. Well, it’s still a great thick book and much of the type is mighty small.) A handsome copy in quite a good-looking set of twentieth century togs.
