Latimore & Haskell, p. 74. Dust jacket with tiny chip out of bottom edge of back panel and two very minor closed tears at bottom of front panel, a little chafing at folds, but still A VERY FINE COPY IN A FINE JACKET.

The translator here, R. Farquharson Sharp (1864-1945), says that his translation is an improvement over former ones because he has refused the temptation of retaining the rhymed verse… Read more

A handful of gatherings with very faint dampstain to top two inches of paper, two quires and one map with faint dampstain to top third--but nowhere is the discoloration anything except barely perceptible, one leaf with small hole in text affecting three words, Sss3 with printing… Read more

Binding a little faded at edges, very short slit to cloth covering top edge of rear board, free endpapers a bit browned, otherwise very fine. With four of the largest wood engravings produced by Eric Ravilious, this is one of just three books produced at the short-lived Golden Hours Press before its founders took over the Golden Cockerel Press. Christopher Sandford and Francis Newbury established Golden Hours in 1932, but closed after one year when the opportunity arose to acquire a respected private press. At the time they closed the press, they sold unbound copies of the present work to publishers Hollis & Carter, who… Read more

Description:
New York: Harper & Brothers, 1894. 210 x 135 mm. (8 1/4 x 5 1/4"). Two volumes. Vibrant dark red half-morocco over textured fuchsia boards, raised bands with gilt rule, compartments with gilt lettering and tools, matching textured endpapers, edges untrimmed. Each volume with frontispiece and with numerous illustrations throughout. Two corners just slightly bruised, a breath of wear to extremities, but A FINE COPY, the contents in perfect condition and the bindings unworn. First published in 1861, Reade's greatest novel follows a 15th century scribe and illuminator who becomes friar following erroneous news of his wife's death. When the couple are reunited years later, the protagonist chooses the celibate life of the Church over obligations to his family. According to the DNB, Reade "read seventy-nine books . . . and filled three 'gigantic cards' with notes about hermits" in preparation this work, allowing him to write in great detail about life in the Medieval… Read more

Description:
Paris: François Delarue, ca, 1845. 546 x 413 mm. (21 1/2 x 16 1/4"). Attractively matted. A LOVELY HAND-COLORED LITHOGRAPH OF PINK AND YELLOW ROSES BY GROBON FRÈRES AFTER REDOUTÉ, the image with arched top, done on a thick piece of creamy-white stock, the flowers against a light gray background. A number of tiny, faint freckles of foxing to background, otherwise clean and bright, with strong, pleasing colors. This very charming piece is based on the famous rose illustrations by Pierre-Joseph Redouté (1759-1840), the Belgian painter and botanist known as the "Raphael of flowers." His talent was such that he weathered the turbulent political times and served as court painter both to Marie Antoinette and to Napoleon's empress, Josephine, for whom he immortalized the blossoms in her famous garden at Malmaison. The lithographers, François Frédéric Grobon (1815-1901/1902) and Anthelme Eugène Grobon (1820-78), were brothers trained in Lyon who produced several collections of botanical prints as… Read more

Taffin (signed on verso of front free endpaper), raised bands, gilt titling, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Original paper wrappers bound in. With reproductions of 203 15th century printers' marks. A hint of wear to front joint and extremities, but A VERY FINE COPY, quite clean, fresh, and bright internally, in a sound binding. This is a lovely copy of a very useful guide to the printers' marks of the incunabular presses in France, organized by city. The Francophone city-states of Lausanne and Geneva are also included. Marie-Louis Polain (1866-1933) was a Belgian bibliographer who worked most of his life in Paris, where he contributed to important catalogues of incunabula, including completing volumes 4-26 of Pellechet, after that scholar's death .

Paris: De l'imprimerie de Plassan, 1821-22. 212 x 133 mm. (8 3/8 x 5 1/4"). Two volumes. Very attractive quarter calf blind-stamped in "cathedral" style over marbled boards by Thouvenin (stamp-signed in gilt at foot of spine), corners tipped with green vellum, spine blindstamped with a design of gothic-arched windows, gilt titling, marbled endpapers and edges. Half title with ink inscription in French stating that this book was purchased at the sale of the library of the Duc de Coigny at Chateau de Franquetot on 24 April [19]12. Occasional insignificant smudges or spots of foxing, the paper a little on the inexpensive side, otherwise an appealing copy with virtually no signs of use. This is an early 19th century French edition of Richardson's first major work, offered here in a well-preserved unusual contemporary binding and with intriguing provenance. Samuel Richardson (1679-1761) was a printer who loved to write letters and who, at the age of 50, began writing novels… Read more

Paris: Eugène Fasquelle, 1898. FIRST EDITION, First Printing. 200 x 140 mm. (7 3/4 x 5 1/2"). 6 p.l, [13]-225 pp., [1] leaf (first and last leaves blank). FIRST EDITION, First Printing. Publisher's original light green paper wrappers, ENTIRELY UNOPENED. With early glassine wrapper. In a later cloth clamshell box. Rear cover with a hint of smudging and rumpling, a touch of fraying to tail of spine, but AN EXTREMELY FINE COPY, never read and little changed since the day it left the press. This is a remarkable unopened copy of Rostand's influential and enduringly popular verse play in five acts. A theatrical triumph from its opening night, "Cyrano" was quickly translated into multiple languages, and brought to English the untranslatable term, "panache." Rostand (1868-1918) wrote a number of successful plays, often, like "Cyrano," based on figures from French history. While copies appear on the market with some regularity, one is very unlikely to… Read more

Contemporary dark green pebble-grain morocco, covers with intricate gilt dentelle frame, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with central quatrefoil design, gilt titling, turn-ins with decorative gilt rules. With 21 hand-colored plates drawn by James Green and etched by Thomas Rowlandson. Tooley 423; Hardie, p. 170. Covers slightly scratched, a touch of wear to joints, very minor offsetting, a bit of spotting throughout (rarely affecting text), a few pages and one plate with minor repairs(not affecting text or image), otherwise a very good copy in a pretty binding with whimsical illustrations. This is an attractively bound example of popular British color-plate books issued at the beginning of the 19th century. Combining light prose and poetry with charming illustrations, this was a specialty of R. Ackermann at his Repository of Arts in London. Hiring such talents as Thomas… Read more
