Description:

London, c. 1830. Sheet (37cm x 47cm), image (33cm x 41cm). A fine, colourful engraved map with decorative borders depicting much of present-day Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, and Nova Scotia. Showing details of James Bay, the five Great Lakes, the St. Lawrence River and the two maritime provinces, with the northeast U.S. sketched in. Good, wide margins (two small tears, repaired), neat central seam as issued. Date is approximate but close-- Toronto (so named in 1834) is shown as ‘York’ and Teesdale’s major work predates the name change. A bright, colourful map of early 19th century Canada which not much more than a dozen years before had withstood the American invasions of the war of 1812-1814. Ex Ruddell collection (November 2008). Simply mounted on white, acid-free mat.

Boston: Marsh & Capen, 1829. First edition (162, appendix, postscript, contents, errata, adverts). Includes as appendix and postscript a twenty page extract from Mary Griffith’s article on bee-keeping from the North American Review, October, 1828. (See our book No. 731, [Griffith, Mary]. Our Neighbourhood, or Letters on Horticulture and Natural Phenomena: Interspersed with Opinions on Domestic and Moral Economy. New York: Bliss, 1831.).

Description:
London: Lackington, Allen and Co., 1812. Edited by William Mavor. New edition with ‘notes georgical, illustrative, and explanatory’ (328; table of Points, glossary, adverts.). Quarto, in full red leather, gilt titles to spine, five raised bands, titles in red. Thomas Tusser (1524- 1580) first published A Hundred Good Pointes of Husbandrie in 1557, the second printed book on farming published in English, after Fitzherbert’s Husbandry (1523), and for the time something of a perennial best seller. In 1573 the text, much modified and expanded, was published in its final form as Five Hundred Points. McRae says, ‘At the heart of the book is a calendar of information and advice about the farming year,’ a device which originated with Tusser and which commonly appears in works on gardening and farming to this day. In the latter part of the book are the ‘pointes of huswiferie loosely arranged around a working day; and framing these principal sections are a number of..poems,… Read more

New York and London: Harper & Brothers, 1924. First edition, in two volumes (xvi, 368; viii, 365, adverts), with an Introduction by Albert Bigelow Paine. Large 8vo with Twain portraits as frontispieces with imprinted tissue guards. In BAL (3537) two states of the first edition are described without concluding which should be assigned precedence, saying, the ‘tentative’ sequence is ‘not firmly established.’ The differences between Variant A and Variant B reside in features of the second volumes, the first volumes being indistinguishable from each other. In particular, the frontispiece tissue guards in Variant A sometimes may be imprinted; whereas the frontispiece tissue guards in Variant B are always imprinted. According to BAL, however, the central distinguishing feature is that Variant A includes two pages of advertising bound in at the end of volume two, followed by a blank; Variant B is free of advertising, with two blank pages at the end of volume two.
