SOUTH SEA BUBBLE. A large collection of 30 - South Sea Bubble - 1758. [1276323]
Thomas Baskett, Printer to the King, London 1758. - A collection of 30 important acts, covering the critical early years of the South Sea Company, including the Act establishing the Company in 1711, and running through the Bubble crisis years of the 1720s to the aftermath of the 1730s. Items 1 to 27 are folio format (255mm x 400mm, 10 x 16 inches) and are chiefly extracts from the Statutes at Large, published by Thomas Baskett, 1758. All disbound from larger volumes, no title pages (as issued), and the caption title doesn't usually start at the head of the page, but some way down it. This is quite normal for Statutes. Items 28, 29 & 30 are small folio format (185mm x 300mm, 7.25 x 12 inches), and are extracts for the Annual volumes of Acts of Parliament, published by Eyre & Strahan, disbound from larger volumes, no title pages (as issued), and the caption title starts at the head of the page, below the royal crest. Items 31 & 32 are related Bubble items, the first being a trial relating to the founding of the Bank of England, the other being a black and white nineteenth century reproduction of a famous scene from the peak of the Bubble mania. Overall condition is very good, with bright clean pages, and decent margins. There is some browning here and there to a few pages, but not many.
