Description:

Toronto: Goodchild, 1921 and 1922. The annual collections of poetry by the club members, in two volumes (pp. 47, 47). Small quarto (19.5cm, 19cm) in folding paper wraps (blue and blue gray), decorative front covers-- one with gilt title, the other with impressed fancy title in light blue, cord binding (mostly missing on one), front edges untrimmed.  The second volume signed by Mason and Houston on the pages with their contributions. Three poems by L. M. Montgomery (‘Winter Song’, ‘The Gate of Dream’, and ‘Spring Song’). According to the Prefatory Note, the Toronto Women’s Press Club held a poetry night in April of 1921 and decided to publish the poems presented by its members (and again in 1922). Volume 1 lightly sunned, especially on the rear cover which has a discoloured patch suggesting some sort of label has been removed; string ties abraded away but still present inside; volume 2 somewhat age-toned with a few whitish marks to the rear cover.  Bright, clean copies.

Description:
Edinburgh: Archibald Constable, 1823. Fourth edition, ‘much improved’ (vii, 367; index, adverts). Small octavo in new three-quarter purple cloth and fancy marbled paper, gilt titles to spine. As Nicols says, this handsome little book ‘is intended as an assistant to Gentlemen, whose business necessarily confines them to the Chamber and to the Counting-Room, who seek health and recreation at their Villas; and to the Ladies of their families who take upon themselves the management of their own Gardens and Parterres’. Nicols (sometimes spelt ‘Nichols’) is cited approvingly by M.E. Jackson in her Florist’s Manual (1816). A scarce home gardening book (mind you, quite a big home) in a smart new binding. The pages of this clean, bright copy remain unopened, and the Directory awaits its first reader (who should be equipped with a paper -knife).

Description:

New York: Harper & Brothers, 1857. First edition (i- xii; 13- 318, advert); illustrated by 300 engravings (some full-page, others in-text) showing designs in generic Gothic  manner together with floor-plans, details of door and window treatment, etc. Large octavo in brown publisher’s cloth, gilt decorations and titles, perished spine skilfully replaced (colour advert on card for encaustic tiles, some damp staining, bound in at rear), new endpapers. Vaux was an associate of Andrew Downing during the last few years of Downing’s life which ended in a tragic steamboat accident on the Hudson (The book is dedicated to the Downings). Vaux went on to work with Frederick Law Olmsted on, among other projects, the design for Central Park, NYC. The ‘villas and cottages’ of the title are in reality quite ambitious houses, suggestive of English country houses a growing  upper middle class might fancy for themselves. General wear to cover edges, only minor light foxing. A very good copy of an important… Read more

Description:
Paris: Chez Briand, 1790. First edition, in two volumes (pp. 396, 470), folding map showing Virginia north to the Great Lakes. Octavo, in recent modern three-quarter leather over complimentary marbled boards, five raised bands, gilt titles to spines, impressed decoration. Thomas Anbury served with the royal army during the early years of the American Revolutionary War and was captured and made prisoner at Saratoga by the colonial forces. Upon giving his parole, he travelled throughout the colonies, an interested but not especially objective observer (He thought slavery a curse). These two volumes, comprising eighty letters to ‘a friend’, record his impressions of what was soon to become the United States. Anbury first writes in August, 1776, from Cork, Ireland, where an expeditionary force is about to embark for North America, later from Montreal where British units have been gathered for a march down the Champlain valley into New York. There are letters, then, from various places along… Read more
