Ashton, John  
Chap-Books of the Eighteenth Century with Facsimiles, Notes, and Introduction
 Picture
Publisher: London, Chatto & Windus, 1882.
xvi, 486, 32 p., facsimile woodcuts throughout; 19.5 cm. "Although these Chap-books are very curious, and on many accounts interesting, no attempt has yet been made to place them before the public in a collected form, accompanied by the characteristic engravings, without which they would lose much of their value. They are the relics of a happily past age… carried in the packs of the pedlars, or Chapmen, to every village, and to every home. ...while they were in their prime, they mark an epoch in the literary history of our nation… and they help us to gauge the intellectual capacity of the lower and lower middle classes of the last century. …As before said, their great variety adapted them for every purchaser, and they may be roughly classed under the following heads:— Religious, Diabolical, Supernatural, Superstitious, Romantic, Humorous, Legendary, Historical, Biographical, and Criminal… I have not included Calendars, and I have purposely avoided Garlands, or Collections of ballads, which equally come under the category of Chap-books… I hope I have succeeded in producing a book at once both amusing and instructive, besides having rescued these almost forgotten booklets from the limbo into which they were fast descending." Good+, brown embossed covers decorated in black & gold; spine edges rubbed, edges & corners worn, ink owner name; withal a very nice copy. Stock#OB301.

 Picture
Publisher: Book Manufacturer's Institute New York 1937.
Blue cloth hardcover stamped in gold, in an illustrated dust jacket depicting the Book Fair of 1537. 45 pages, with illustrations in black and red by the incomparable van Loon. Apparently done as a keepsake for the Book Manufacturing Exhibit in 1937. Covers (briefly) the history of the book from Chinese block prints to the controversy surrounding the invention of moveable type, and ends on a plea for International cooperation on the eve of the Second World War. The book is in very good condition with a little glue offset on front endpapers, and trace of paperclip rust mark on front free endpaper. The dust jacket is very good with very light edgewear, a couple of very short closed tears, and some offset on inside flaps (in protective wrapper).
