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

London: Strahan, Nicoll, et al., 1772. Third edition, corrected and enlarged ( 438 pp., Index). Illustrated with copper plate engravings of “newly invented implements of husbandry” and fold-out. Octavo (21cm x 14cm) in modern three-quarter leather over complimentary marbled paper, new gilt titles, end papers. Young sets out, as he says, to describe “the present state of agriculture and manufactures, the different methods of cultivating the soil, ...experiments on various grasses, the prices of labour and provisions, [and] the state of the working poor.” He also gives an account of the “nobility and gentry and other objects worthy of notice” including the inns at which he stopped, finding the Duke’s Head at Lynn “exceeding civil and reasonable” but the Passage House at Newnham “very bad and dear”. Old wine in a new bottle and a handsome copy of an important work on agricultural (and perhaps inn-keeping) reform.
