Authors, Various, Illustrated by: Hand-colored Plates Plus Engravings  
THE LADY'S MAGAZINE or Entertaining Companion for the FAIR SEX, Appropriated Solely to Their USE and AMUSEMENT
 Picture
Publisher: Printed for G. Robinson London, Patternoster Row.
This bound volume of issues is about 9 x 5.5 inches (about 22 x 14 cm) 3/4 leather, red cloth cover with green leather corners and spine, gilt decorations on all leather edges and on spine, gilt spine titles. The edges are rubbed and corners worn and the red cloth has a little light soil and a couple of small splots on the front board, otherwise the colors and gilt are bright. Plain colored endpapers, hinges started but strong. Previous owner's bookplate on front paste-down. All edges stained red. The text is on rag paper, very clean and fresh throughout. Issues include: 1807: Jan, April, May, June, Sept; 1809: Jan, Feb, May, June, Sept. Images included: 10 hand-watercolored fashion plates (Regency period). These usually represent two figures (often front and back views) of women in congenial activities - playing the harp, lounging and conversing, walking arm-in-arm, etc. One is so cute, it reminds me sharply of Kate Greenaway. Plus: 23 engravings and 13 folding engravings. The folding engravings are mostly embroidery patterns (or rather, designs) for such things as borders and trimmings, crown of a cap, designs to decorate veils, etc. Very delicate and mostly flora-inspired. The engravings include scenes and portraits, with a "gallery" of English peers at the end of the book. The texts cover a wide range of topics including current fashion, biography, history and natural history, travel, poetry, foreign news, births, marriages, and deaths, essays, etc. Apparently what a 'Lady' of the period would need to know to carry on sprightly parlour conversation. Ladies in the obituaries are noted for their piety, pleasantness, manners, and tenderness. Their patronage is recounted. Many died in 'childbed' or in 'unsuccessful labor.' Gentlemen are noted for their accomplishments. No further comment from ye cataloger.

Britton, John:  
Descriptive Sketches of Tunbridge Wells and the Calverley Estate ; with brief notices of the picturesque scenery, seats, and antiquities in the vicinity - embellished with maps and prints.

Publisher: London, the author and Longman & Co., 1832. (1st Edition).
xi + 148pp with 4 pages book adverts, 2 double page maps, plus full-page engravings and two woodcut vignettes in text. This title is seldom found : the first print run - of which this is a rare remaining copy - contained an extraordinary biographical error, for on page 59 is printed ".....Judge Jefferies, a man who has rendered his name infamous in the annals of history by the cruelty and injustice he manifested in presiding at the trial of King Charles I...." John Britton was naturally aghast when the historical error was noticed but by this time copies of the book had been distributed for binding : every effort was made to obtain the return of these "defective" copies, this is one of the few which escaped. There was a corrected printing, however with Tunbridge Wells once a most regarded area in which to live many copies were probably chopped apart by philistines just to frame and glaze the book's maps and prints. This book was recently professionally re-backed, preserving the original spine, title label, and dark olive green cloth covers ; replacement endpapers from "old" paper : the gatherings were re-sown as originally bound, with an engraving of "Villas of Calverley Park" in place of "View of Tunbridge Castle". The "list of embellishments" has slightly varying descriptions for the engravings compared to their actual titling. Internally the book has very minor age foxing, but this is a most attractive copy - slight "rust" residue witness to upper of "Tunbridge Wells and Calverley" double-page map from an old paper-clip. A genuinely rare book that has been a great pleasure to research. Very good, sound, cond. 8 x 5 inches

Tratado De Commercio, E Navegacao Entre Os Muito Altos, E Muito Poderosos Senhores O Principe Regente De Portugal, E El Reino Unido Da Grande Bretanha E Irlanda, Asignado No Rio De Janeiro

Publisher: Lisboa: Na Impressao Regia Anno De M.DCCC. XIX. [1819].
Folio 33 p. (A-I2, I2 blank). 31.5 cm. The vital treaty between Great Britain and Portugal signed during the Napoleonic Wars as Wellesley was conducting the Peninsular war to save the Portuguese from the terrors experienced by the Spanish. The treaty opened all Brazilian ports to English merchants and signalled for the first time that non-Portuguese were allowed to trade directly with the colony. Maria I (17344-1816) was not only old, in 1792 she had suffered a mental collapse and her son Jaoa, John VI, served as Regent 24 years. In 1810 the government was in exile in Brazil and thus the Royal Press issued the first edition in Rio in 1810. This Lisbon edition was issued to make legitimate the treaty, with the restoration of the Capital and the accession of John as King. A very good copy, bound in recent half leather. HAN. OB /OS 3

No Author Indicated, Illustrated by: Wood Engravings  
THEODORE CARLETON: OR Perseverance Against Fortune; Plus Titles on Dog, Birds, Animals, Indians, and Coverings for the Head and Feet.

Publisher: No Publisher No Place.
Red cloth hardcover with embossed decorations. 144 pages (six parts of 24 pages each) very charminglly illustrated with woodcuts throughout. No date: circa 1860. No place, no publisher (no title page as issued). This appears to be a compilation of "reward of merit" type books given by teachers to students who excelled. These books were often published with a "memorial" to a child, although this one is free of such morbidity, and intead includes only the moral story of the title. The other sections include 'Sagacity of the Dog, ' 'Child's Book of Birds, ' 'Child's Book of Animals, ' 'Romance of Indian History, ' and 'Coverings for the Head and Feet." The latter is an illustrated history of hats, headgear, and footwear. The child who received this (Laydora) must have been thrilled with the illustrations of dog breeds and bird and animal species; not to mention the "romance" of the Indian history and quaintness of hats and shoes illustrated. The teacher inscription is written very pale and small, apparently in pencil, on the front free endpaper. The corner tips and spine ends are worn, some surface duskiness and few specks of black (ink?) on cover, front hinge weak, some foxing throughout, mostly marginal browning. Lots of charm in this one, and unusual for its lack of heavy handed moralizing. Of course the 'Indian Romance' stuff casts the native in negative light, but the stories appear to be based on historical incidents. A real little charmer waiting for an appreciative home.
