Description:
Full calf. Probable first issue of the Stowe Edition with Chaucer's arms dated 1560 and before woodcut additions. Relative to the precedence of issues of the 1561 Stowe edition David R.

In all documented cases, the unillustrated [i.e. first]"General Prologue" occurs with a title page showing the Chaucer arms, dated 1560 at the top of the shield. A different title-page, dated 1561, is found in copies incorporating the [woodcut] illustrated… Read More

Description:
Unique original hand-painted in heavy gouache. Raised band border. Lays on art board that is glued to a back board. Produced by the E. E. Sutherland Medicine Company of Paducah, "Dr. Bell's" advertised itself as a safe, non-habit forming combination of pine tar, honey, glycerin, and various vegetable extracts which promised (quite inaccurately) to cure everything from the croup to the flu to bronchitis. Analysis showed it to be an alcohol-water solution, containing ammonia, glycerin, pine tar, sassafras, red pepper, and reducing sugars. The nonfictional old woman in the ad was named "Granny Metcalfe" and was used throughout the years as the face of the product, despite dying in 1898. Gouache itself: 5 x 7 in With backboard: 9.75 x 12 in
