Description:
Cirencester: S. Rudder, 1789. First edition (vii, 14). Tall 8vo in three-quarter calf over marbled boards, gilt decoration to spine, titles. Clean and tight. ‘Watering’ is a species of controlled flooding whereby water diverted from its natural course along a series of channels onto hay and pasture land, usually in early Spring, and then directed back to the water course from whence it came. This short treatise accounts for the benefits of watering (irrigating) meadows, together with a discussion of the general method, and furnishes a calendar of events so the work is performed at the right time of year. Wright claims great efficacy for this form of irrigation-- early pasturage and greater yields of hay crops especially. BOUND TOGETHER WITH Boswell, George. A Treatise on the Watering of Meadows: Wherein Are Shewn Some of the Many Advantages Arising from that Mode of Practice, Particularly on Coarse, Boggy, or Barren Lands; and the Method of Performing the Work....

Description:

Translated by William Henry Melmoth.  London: Alexander Hogg at the King’s Arms, No. 16, Pater-noster-Row, 1784. First edition (pp. 327, index, List of Subscribers). Quarto (26 cm) in half leather over paper with 24 ‘grand’ full-page copperplates, frontis portrait of Fenelon, fold-out map of the travels of Telemachus; recently rebacked, gilt titles to spine. Binding thoroughly worn but sound; text generally clean. The Adventures of Telemachus was written in 1693-94 by Archbishop Fenelon at Cambray where he had been confined by order of Louis XIV. Superficially an account of the wanderings and adventures of Ulysses' son Telemachus, the book was in reality a reformist argument for limiting the absolute power of the (French) monarchy ‘for the use and instruction of the Dauphin of France to guard him, in an allegorical way, against forming his conduct after the bad example of his Grandfather Louis XIV’. ( Fénelon went so far as to write, "Good kings are rare and the generality of monarchs… Read more

Description:
Stuttgart: Konrad Wittwer, n.d. (but c. 1906 from references cited in Introduction). First edition (28 pp., 60 plates). Sixty full-page plates, sketches and photographs of the architecture of old Stuttgart supplemented by twenty pen and ink drawings of architectural detail cut into the text. Large quarto (about 28 cm x 34 cm) in brown baize cloth over beveled boards, fancy gilt decoration and titles to cover and spine; decorative endpapers, a.e.g.; printed on fine, heavy stock. The street scenes, especially, reward close inspection with a magnifying glass. Plate 40, for instance, a photograph of a house on Rotebuhl Strasse, captures seemingly by accident the image of three grinning children peeking around the corner at the camera. The photographs are particularly fine-- now if only those horses would stand still. The text, in German, surveys the city’s architecture from the late Renaissance to the end of the nineteenth century, a sort of fin de siecle retrospective. The book, as beautiful as it… 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

Description:
London: Longman, 1857. First edition (v, 111 pp., advert.). Green cloth with impressed decorations, gilt lettering and decorations. Believing many of the commentators on the ‘gentle piscatorial art’ have fallen into error since ‘good old Izaak’ first published his Complete Angler, Bailey, a famous angler of his day, sets out the lessons of ‘upwards of twenty years practical experience as an Angler’ in search of pike, perch, trout, gudgeon, chub, carp, roach, etc. Salmon, however, proved too aristocratic a fish, and Bailey, with no experience with the ‘king’, refers the reader to an article in Bell’s Life. Advertisement for ‘William Bailey, Fishing Tackle Maker, Broad Marsh, Nottingham’ and ‘Gentlemen instructed in the art of angling’ on the last page. “An excellent practical treatise by the best Nottingham angler of his day” (Westwood, 20). Tips worn, top and tail of spine worn, outside hinge repaired, some flaked gilt. A… Read more
