Amsterdam: Henr. & Viduam Theod. Boom, 1683. FIRST EDITION. 140 x 80 mm. (5 1/2 x 3 1/8"). 82, [2], 115 pp. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary calf, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with central fleuron, gilt titling. Pritzel 1831, 782; not in Hunt, Nissen, or Plesch. See D. O. Wijnands, "The Botany of the Commelins" (1983). Corners lightly bumped and rubbed, trivial spots to leather, faint wear to joints, a couple of leaves at the end with pale marginal dampstains, other trivial imperfections, but still a fine copy, quite clean, fresh, and even bright inside, in an unsophisticated binding that is firm and pleasing. This is the rare first edition of the first Dutch flora, composed by a man who came by his knowledge of botany from the marketplace rather than the academy. Jan Commelin or Commelijn (1629-92) was a purveyor of pharmaceutical plants to apothecaries and hospitals, whose success as a businessman led to a position in city government as director of the Amsterdam… Read more

[Mainz: Printer of the Catholicon (Johann Gutenberg?), ca. 1460; Peter Schoeffer(?) for Konrad Humery(?), 1469]. From the FIRST EDITION, Second Impression, on Galliziani paper. 356 x 267 mm. (14 x 10 1/2"). Double column, 66 lines of text in gothic type. From the FIRST EDITION, Second Impression, on Galliziani paper. Initials and paragraph marks in red. Goff B-20; BMC I, 39. Small patch of dust-soiling to lower margin of verso, a touch of browning to edges, one small (wax) spot to text, otherwise an excellent specimen. This leaf represents Gutenberg's final printing innovation: an early form of stereotyping. According to Paul Needham, when Gutenberg printed the first impression of "Catholicon" in 1460, he also created two-line "slugs" cast from the type, which could be reassembled for later impressions. These slugs were a part of Gutenberg's typographic materials obtained by Konrad Humery after the protoprinter's death in 1468, and they were used by Humery to print another issue of "Catholicon,"… Read more

Description:
[Mt. Vernon, N. Y.]: William Edwin Rudge, 1930. 171 x 110 mm. (6 3/4 x 4 1/4"). Two volumes. Publisher's full green morocco designed by Frederic Warde, stamped in gilt, smooth spine with gilt rules and lettering, housed in dark green cardboard slipcase. Each volume with frontispiece portrait. Spines uniformly sunned to brown, covers with few natural imperfections to leather (appearing as a dark streaks), a hint of wear to extremities, contents pristine. This is an attractive set of Dickens' perennially popular Christmas classic, apparently printed as holiday gifts for the friends of William Edwin Rudge. The Rudge family of printers included four generations with the same name; the present work was almost certainly printed by the second William Edwin Rudge, who oversaw the press in its heyday and worked with luminaries such as Bruce Rogers and Frederic Goudy.
