Lilly, Joseph (ed)  
A Collection of Seventy-Nine Black-Letter Ballads and Broadsides Printed in the Reign of Queen Elizabeth between the Years 1559 and 1597

Publisher: Joseph Lilly, London, 1867.
Very Good with no dust jacket. First Edition. First Printing. Hard Cover Original publisher's brown cloth, gilt lettering on spine, blind-stamped decorative front and rear panels, brown endpapers, fore and bottom edges deckle. Accompanied with an Introduction and Illustrative Notes. Four additional items are included with the book: (1) An autograph letter, signed, written on both sides of a sheet, from the publisher, Joseph Lilly, dated August 21, 1867, and sent from Covent Garden, explaining how he acquired the rights to the current book, as follows: "Dear Sir, I gave L750 for the folio volume of the Old Ballads & Broadsides, at the sale of the library of George Daniel Esq, at "Sotheby's" Auction Rooms, in July 1864. I do not know the date of Mr. Daniel's birth. He was about 75 years old at the time of his death. I think he was born in Newgate [or ?]. I think his father (or mother's) family was in the worsted trade. If I can get a portrait of him I will send it to you. Yours truly (signed) Joseph Lilly." (2) Another note is tipped-in to the front endpaper, in a different hand, as follows: "George Daniels Ballads | With autograph note of Mr. Lilly the publisher stating that he gave upwards of L700 for the original. [sic] and Scarce portrait, + short Memoir of Mr. Daniel __ - Only a comparative few copies printed." (3) Also laid-in is the portrait of George Daniel referred to in Mr. Lilly's note, and (4) a short, somewhat poetic memoir of him, curiously captioned "Memoir of D._ _G." The note on the endpaper describes the portrait and memoir as scarce as there were only a few copies printed. NB: A large number of the 19th Century acting editions are promoted as containing "remarks by D. _ _G" (i.e. George Daniel). These remarks are usually two to three pages in length and contain relatively non-critical comments about the play and its production. These prefaces consist primarily of a synopsis of the play, but occasionally they contain interesting anecdotes that shed some light on both the cultural and theatrical landscape of his time. Fortunately, in a few of the scripts the critic's nom de plume is forgotten, and he is identified as George Daniel (1789-1864). He was a descendant of a Huguenot family that settled in England in the 17th century. Even as a young man he was a prolific writer, mostly of poetry, but at the age of 18 he completed Dick Distich, a novel in three volumes. Yet it would be as a poet that Daniel was to gain his first taste of pseudonymous fame, as "P___P___, Poet Laureat." P___ P___, Poet Laureat's first poem was a "sprightly squib in verse" entitled "R_y_l Stripes; or a Kick from Yar_th to Wa_s; with the particulars of an Expedition to Oat_ds and the Sprained Ancle." It was an account of the horse-whipping given to the prince regent by Lord Yarmouth for "making improper advances" to his mother-in-law. The poem was immediately and simultaneously suppressed and highly popular. Daniel's original manuscript is kept in the British

Very light, mild foxing throughout. Both Tables are in excellent condition. VERY GOOD. "Blackstone's great work on the laws of England is the extreme example of justification of an existing state of affairs by virtue of its history. Until the Commentaries, the ordinary Englishman had viewed the law as a vast, unintelligible and unfriendly machine. Blackstone's great achievement was to popularize the law and the traditions which had influenced its formation. He takes a delight in describing and defending as the essence of the constitution the often anomalous complexities which had grown into the laws of England over the centuries. But he achieves the astonishing feat of communicating this delight, and this is due to a style which is itself always lucid and graceful.". 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall

Tennyson, Alfred, Lord  
Idylls of the King
 Picture
Publisher: Henry Altemus, Philadelphia, 1889.
Fine with no dust jacket. First Edition Thus. First Printing. Hard Cover Publisher's full blue cloth, spine in six compartments separated by gilt borders, gilt lettering in two compartments, gilt devices in remainder, elaborate gilt, silver and black decoration on cover. Includes all 12 books, each with its own title page. Illustrated with 37 full-page, tissue-protected plates by Gustave Dore. Idylls of the King, published between 1859 and 1885, is a cycle of twelve narrative poems by the English poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson (1809-1892; Poet Laureate from 1850) which retells the legend of King Arthur, his knights, his love for Guinevere and her tragic betrayal of him, and the rise and fall of Arthur's kingdom. The whole work recounts Arthur's attempt and failure to lift up mankind and create a perfect kingdom, from his coming to power to his death at the hands of the traitor Mordred. Individual poems detail the deeds of various knights, including Lancelot, Geraint, Galahad, and Balin and Balan, and also Merlin and the Lady of the Lake. The Idylls are written in blank verse. Gustave Dore (1832-1883) is one of the most popular illustrators of all tme. He was a prolific engraver, artist, illustrator, and sculptor, working primarily as a wood and steel engraver. He produced over 100, 000 sketches in his lifetime, and lived to be 50 years old. Even though he was an untrained, self-taught artist, who never used a live model, and who could not sketch from nature, his work is considered some of the most important in the entire engraving art world. Although he illustrated over 200 books, some with more than 400 plates, he is primarily known for his illustrations to The Divine Comedy, particularly The Inferno, his illustrations to Don Quixote, Idylls of the King, and Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven. Expertly refurbished, tight, square and clean. All of the illustrations are in perfect condition. FINE. B&W Drawings. Folio 13" - 23" tall. 363 pp

Titles, gilt, in one of six compartments separated by raised bands, TEG. 4to. This exquisitely-crafted book presents a collection of 72 hand-colored lithographs by Henry Noel Humphreys, based on Jean Froissart medieval manuscripts. Each plate is protected by a tissue guard and has a leaf of text by Humphreys describing the historical scene depicted. The illustrations are accented in gold. There are two hand-colored lithographic title pages, and two printed ones. Volume One (published in 1844) is based on Froissart's Chronicles manuscripts in the B. M. Harlein Collection in the British Museum. Volume Two (published in 1845) is based on a Froissart's Chronicles manuscript in the Bibliotheque Royale, Paris. The plates, illuminated miniatures, illustrations and text are in almost as new condition. Complete as issued, with no missing pages or plates. All pages are securely bound, fresh, and clean, with no foxing, damp stains or tears. Gift inscription of ffep: ("Miss Julia R. Lane with the congratulations of her friend. B. H. Hall. Troy, New York, October 8th, 1856"). Front interior hinge, at endpapers, has a small section that has been glue repaired. Cover has some rubbing to edges and sides. Book in very nice condition throughout. A magnificent volume. VERY GOOD. A masterwork of Victorian (and medieval) illustration. The artist, Henry Noel Humphreys (1810-1879) was one of the most popular illustrators of the Victorian era, and one of the greatest Nineteenth Century illuminators. In this volume, Humphreys presents his version of 72 illustrations from 15th century manuscripts of The Chronicles by Jean Froissart.

His Chronicles covered the Hundred Year's War (from 1325 to 1400) and is the single most important source for the history of that period. Hand-painted. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall

Gilpin, William , Illustrated by: Folding Maps  
Mission of the North American People, Geographical, Social, and Political. Illustrated By Six Charts Delineating the Physical Architecture and Thermal Laws of All Continents.

Publisher: J. B. Lippincott Company Philadelphia 1973.
A first edition of the "reproduction" of Gilpin's 1860 title, "The Central Gold Region. The Grain, Pastoral and Gold Regions of North America: Some New Views of Its Physical Geography, and Observations on the Pacific Railroad." In original dark green cloth covers with gilt stamped spine titles and decoration. 217 pages, with six large fold-out maps that include three of North America depicting some of Gilpin's rather fanciful theories of climate and geography, one illustrating the "system of the Parcs (sic) and the domestic relations of the Great Plains, the North American Andes, and the Pacific Maritime Front, " a map of the world, and one of the "System of the Parcs of Colorado." Included is a chapter on Gilpin's advocacy for a railway to the Pacific, experiences in the Mexican War, a chapter on the importance of Pike's Peak and Sierra San Juan (Gilpin was convinced that Denver would the hub of Western commerce), and topics suggested by the subjects of the maps. Gilpin's own history is controversial and fascinating, from his trip across the West with Fremont (when Giilpin suspected evidence of placer gold in Colorado), his tenure in Oregon's Willamette Valley and participation in obtaining provisional government status from the US Congress for the Oregon territory, his distinguished military career including Indian wars, his brief term as Governor of Colorado (he was dismissed by President Lincoln due to fiscal controversies), his career as an attorney, his prophecies regarding the importance of the American West..well. Quite a character who also produced a number of substantial books. This volume has some edgewear, with small areas of rub-through of the cloth and a slight cant due to the insertion of the maps. The maps themselves are in good condition, a few have a discolored strip along the text edge on the back of the map, not affecting maps themselves, several have small closed tears at the point of their attachment to the book, a couple with short spearation at fold line. All are bright and clean otherwise. There is a faint smoky odor: seems more like fireplace smoke than tobacco. but it's too faint and old to really tell. Overall a fascninating book by an interesting character on an unusual aspect of Western America exploration and expectation.collectible 5049 First Edition Thus No Dust Jacket (as issued) Hard Cover Very Good Condition 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Collectibles

Very Good with no dust jacket. First Edition (?). 1. Vellum Hardcover. Bound in contemporary vellum boards. 4to (approx 9 x 12.5"). (xvi), 761, (15 index) pp. IN LATIN. Edgewear, some very old tape repairs to boards. Titles in ink in a contemporary hand. On upper board ("L. Annaei Senecae | Opera omnia | (Basileae 1557) ") and spine ("L. Annaei Senecae Opumn") Very old damp-stain on rear board not affecting text block. Very light foxing throughout. Pages quite supple. One line of text written and then crossed out on title page. VERY GOOD. This is an extremely rare copy of the complete works of Seneca printed in Basel in 1557 by Johannem Hervagium and Bernardum Brandun. Lucius Annaeus Seneca (c. 4 BC-AD 65) was a Roman philosopher, statesman, dramatist, and in one work humorist, of the Silver Age of Latin literature. Tacitus gives an account of the suicide of Seneca in his book, the Annals, in Book XV, Chapter/Number 60 through 64. Works attributed to Seneca include a satire, a meteorological essay, philosophical essays, 124 letters dealing with moral issues, and nine tragedies. Seneca's brand of Stoic philosophy emphasized practical steps by which the reader might confront life's problems. Johannem Hervagium (Johannes Hervagius) was Swiss publisher active in the period approximately 1528 through 1561, who published authoritative texts of many classical authors.

Elephant Folio. Signed by Vedder on Limitation Page. In the ten months from May 1883 to March 1884, Elihu Vedder (1836-1923) completed a series of 54 drawings in pencil, ink, chalk, & watercolor to accompany this 1884 edition of the Rubaiyat. All of these original drawings, which were proclaimed a masterwork of American art, were included in a special exhibition of "Elihu Vedder's Drawings for the Rubaiyat" at the National Museum of American Art in 1998. The exhibition also included two first edition printings of this Rubaiyat with Vedder's "accompaniments." Vedder's edition was an instant success, selling out only six days after its debut in Boston on November 8, 1884. With the Rubaiyat, Vedder set the standard for artist-designed books in America and England. Critics rushed to acclaim it as a masterwork. Vedder is best known for his illustrations of this edition of The Rubaiyat. He died in Rome, Italy, in 1923.

Moore, Thomas; John Lindley (ed)  
The Ferns of Great Britain and Ireland

Publisher: Bradbury and Evans, London, 1855.
Very Good with no dust jacket. First Edition. First Printing. Hard Cover First Complete Edition, First Printing. Half leather over cloth boards, spine in six compartments separated by raised bands, gilt lettering on black label on spine, marbled endpapers, t.e.g. This is the first nature-printed book published in Great Britain. Illustrated with 51 nature-printed plates, all hand-painted, published by Bradbury & Evans, under the direction of Henry Bradbury, son of William Bradbury. Henry Bradbury (1831-1860) discovered nature-printing while studying at the Imperial Printing Office in Vienna. Alois Auer, the director of the office, together with his associate, Andreas Worring, had patented the process in October of 1852. When Bradbury subsequently returned to London, he patented an improved version of the process, without giving appropriate credit to Auer and Worring. Bradbury initially published The Ferns of Great Britain and Ireland in 17 monthly installments, between June of 1855 and September of 1856, and then issued all 51 plates in this book, with text by Thomas Moore. The text was a scientific description of all the varieties of Ferns found in the British Isles written by Thomas Moore (curator of the Chelsea botanic garden and co-editor of Gardener's Chronicle). The volume was edited by the eminent botanist and horticulturist John Lindley. The book was released at a time of so-called "pteridomania" (Fern-Fever, a craze for ferns) in Britain. Although its publication was preceded by Bradbury's "A Few Leaves from the Newly-Invented Process of Nature-Printing" (1854), which he considered only to be an advertisement, it was the first complete nature-printed book published in Britain, and is described in Lindley's preface as 'the first English attempt at applying Nature-Printing to Botanical Science'. In the nature-printing process, the ferns, a plant highly suited to the process, were impressed upon soft lead plates. These were electroplated to become the printing plate, the details of the fronds and stem were then hand-colored. The resulting image was in two colors and provided a highly detailed and realistic depiction of the species. Despite a high level of interest for a time, the technique was not employed extensively in any subsequent English works. Bradbury, along with Auer, believed the technique to be an enormous advance in printing. However, the plants and other subjects that could be successfully printed in this way were few. Bradbury went on to publish William Johnstone's The Nature-Printed British Seaweeds (London: 1859-60), and to plan a further four nature-printed works. However, the controversy with Auer continued to dog his steps. He committed suicide at the age of 29 (by drinking soda water mixed with prussic acid in Cremorne Gardens, London). Thomas Moore (1821-1887) was an English gardener and botanist. He was an expert on ferns and fern allies from the British Isles, and he served as Curator of the Society of Apothecaries Gar

Denver later served for a short time as the Governor of the Kansas Territory, when, in 1858, the city which would become the capitol of Colorado was named after him. He later served as a general in the Civil War, and was considered as a candidate for president in the 70s and 80s but his rejection was generally attributed to the duel.

MacPherson, James, Esq.  
The Poems of Ossian (Two Volumes-Complete)
 Picture
Publisher: A. Strahan and T. Cadell, London, 1790.
Very Good+ with no dust jacket. First Edition (?). 1. Hard Cover Bound in contemporary full leather, spines in six compartments separated by gilt borders, gilt lettering in two compartments on red panels, gilt decoration in other compartments, gilt borders on covers, gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers. In 1760, James MacPherson (1736-96), published "Fingal, an Ancient Epic Poem" his first translation of an ancient Gaelic poem composed by the warrior/poet Ossian a thousand years before. Praised by Schiller, quoted at length by Goethe, and beloved by Napoleon, a complete translation of the works of Ossian followed quickly upon the heels of its predecessor, but like "Fingal, " it was a monumental literary fraud unparalleled in the history of European scholarly letters. Composed entirely by MacPherson, Ossian was entirely a figment of Macpherson's imagination. In the following two years, MacPherson published two additional fragments, "Fragments" and "Temora." MacPherson had compiled fragments of ancient Gaelic poetry, which he interspersed with his own work, and published them all together, again as the work of Ossian, in 1765. This first collected edition, "The Works of Ossian" (1765), contains 400 or so textual revisions, mostly minor in nature, but for his second collected edition Macpherson reworked his entire text stylistically, and reordered the poems 'so as to form a kind of regular history of the age to which they relate'. When faced with skeptics, including Samuel Johnson, MacPherson was forced to fabricate his sources. [Lowndes 1736]. Also published there for the first time were MacPherson's prefatory discussion of the nature and merits of his 'translation' into prose rather than verse, doubting 'whether the harmony which these poems might derive from rhime could atone for the simplicity and energy, which they would lose'. He gives as an example a fragment of an old Norse poem translated by way of Gaelic into contemporary English prose, and then into contemporary English verse. The preface is dated 'Aug. 15, 1773'; it was less than six weeks later that Boswell and Johnson, in Ulinish on the Isle of Skye, were talking with Donald M'Queen about Ossian. 'I look upon M'Pherson's Fingal to be as gross an imposition as ever the world was troubled with', said Johnson. 'Had it been really an ancient work It would have been a curiosity of the first rate. As a modern production, it is nothing' (Boswell's Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides, ed. Hill-Powell, in Life of Johnson, V, 240-3) Johnson mentions this discussions with M'Queen in "Journey to the Western Islands" (first edition, pp. 271-7) in the course of a sustained denunciation of MacPherson's 'translations' and their apologists. Within two days of the distribution of Johnson's "Journey" to the booksellers, MacPherson began frantic negotiations with William Strahan, his publisher as well as Johnson's, to have an advertisement printed retracting such expressions as 'insolence, audacity, and guilt
