        The Art of Bookbinding: Containing a Description of the Tools, Forwarding, Gilding and Finishing, Stationary Binding, Edge-Colouring, Marbling, Sprinkling, &c., &c.

      London: Published by Messrs. Baldwin Cradock & Joy 1818 - First Edition, small 8vo, [iv],iv,92pp., woodcut frontispiece (offset), woodcut vignette on title page, marbled endpapers, cont. half calf, marbled boards, upper hinge expertly repaired, spine gilt with green morocco label, a nice copy. Pollard & Potter, Early Bookbinding Manuals. 93. "The authors name, Henry Parry, appears on the printed boards, but not on the title-page. It seems likely that he was the same Henry Parry to whom the Oswestry book of 1811 was registered, though the 1818 manual is substantially a different book. It contains a much more adequate description of the forwarding processes; and, while the recipes for colouring edges and sprinkling leather come largely from the Oswestry book, they do not follow its wording.". This, the second English book devoted wholly to bookbinding, is a far scarcer book than the Oswestry manual of 1811. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Il mezzo più sicuro per vincere al lotto o sia nuova lista generale de' Sogni Col nome di tutte le cose, e numeri corrispondenti alle Estrazioni di Roma e di Napoli. Opera di Fortunato indovino e di Albumazar da Carpentieri. Descritta ed accresciuta di 2 Smorfie e di 90 figure del giuoco romano. Dall'Anonimo Cabalistico Coll'aumento di moltissime voci, che sono state desunte dall'edizione Veneta. Con l'aggiunta delle 19 tavole del 1500 di Rutilio Benincasa, e il modo di adoprarle, ed altre diverse Cabale; di più l'interpretazione, o sia spiegazione de'Sogni; con la Tariffa de'prezzi, ed in fine le Estrazioni uscite dal 1800 sino al presente. In Fuligno, Presso Gio. Tomassini, 1818.

      - In 12, [mm. 146 x 78], pp. 257 – (5). In cartone muto privo del dorso. Errore di numerazione alle pp 126, 143 che presenta uno strappetto trasversale, 239; p. 168 con il testo a ridosso del taglio per errore di stampa. L'opera, costituisce un aggiornamento della edizione veneta del 1786 è una vera e propria "smorfia" con la lista di voci (arti animali oggetti etc.) poste in ordine alfabetico con l'abbinamento al numero, a cui fanno seguito i nomi di uomini, donne, di uomini e donne ebree, dei mesi, dei regni delle capitali e delle città italiane. A questa segue l'inverso, ovvero i novanta numeri abbinati all'elenco delle cose corrispondenti Ci sono poi quindici pagine con novanta vignette xilografiche di gusto popolare che raffigurano l'oggetto o l'azione corrispondente al numero. Prima delle tavole di Rutilio Benincasa, il famoso astronomo e astrologo nato nel 1555 a Torzano, presso Cosenza, con cui si potevano prevedere le uscite del lotto, c'è la "Regola per sapere in ogni estrazione un numero sicuro che deve uscire. Ci sono poi altre quattro pagine con le illustrazioni delle versione romana e alle cabale seguono altre quindici pagine con altre piccole xilografie di carattere popolare. queste seguono le interpretazioni dei sogni e poi le tariffe che si pagano per le giocate, altre regole per "legare" fra loro i numeri e quindi alle cabale fanno seguito le estrazioni – che erano mensili – a Roma dal 1800 al 1818. Opera rara proprio per la qualità anche della stampa, testimoniata dalla qualità delle piccole incisioni xilografiche (cm .3 x 3) che ne sottolinea la destinazione popolare. In SBN sono segnalate solo due copie dell'opera: una copia dell'edizione edita a Macerata nel 1796, e quindi con le estrazioni fino al 1795 è posseduta dalla Biblioteca Casanatense dove è conservata fra i rari ed è mutila di 8 carte, l'altra copia appartiene all'edizione folignate del 1808 censita in SBN posseduta dalla Biblioteca Civica Andrea Doria, è mutila di circa 90 pp. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Osorio de Pina Leitão was born in Pinhel (district of Guarda, Portugal) in 1762; he received a degree in law from Coimbra University and went on to serve as a magistrate. Among other positions, he held that of Desembargador da Relação da Bahia. After Brazilian independence was declared he remained to serve the Empire. He published six other poems.The @Alfonsiada was published by Bahia's first printer, Manoel Antonio da Silva Serva, who operated a press there from 1811 to 1819.The engravings are portraits of D. João VI, to whom the work is dedicated; D. Afonso Henriques; and the author. All are signed by A. do Carmo as artist and J.J. de Souza (i.e., Joaquim Inácio Ferreira de Sousa) as engraver. Ferreira de Sousa is known to have worked at the Arco do Cego and the Impressão Regia in the first decade of the nineteenth century. In 1816 he did the engravings included in @Colecção de retratos de homens que adquiriram nome, published in Rio de Janeiro. That is his most famous work; the drawings for it were also by A. do Carmo, about whom Soares had no further information.---- Berbert de Castro 117: reproducing the title page and author portrait.

Otherwise a very fine set of these plates.Bound by Aquarius of London ca. 1990 in three quarter green morocco over green cloth boards, decoratively ruled in gilt. Front cover with green morocco label measuring 6 3/8 x 9 5/16 inches: 162 x 237 mm.), decoratively lettered and bordered in gilt. Spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt. Fine.The Plates:1. Drawing a Cover. "Hark to old Danger" H. Alken, del. (Jany. 1, 1818)2. Gone Away. "The pleasure of a view Holla" [no artist or engraver] (Jany. 1, 1818) 3. Full Cry "Taking the thing easy" H. Alken, del. Sutherland, sculp. (Jany. 1, 1818)4. The Leap "Taking the lead in defiance of speed" H. Alken, del. Sutherland, sculp. (Jany. 1, 1818)5. The Death "The reward of a bold push" H. Alken, delt. Sutherland, sculpt. (Jany. 1, 1818)6. The Refreshment [no additional title] H. Alken, del. Sutherland, sculp. (Jany. 1, 1818)7. The Toast "Fox Hunting" H. Alken, delt. Cooper & Sutherland, sculp. (March 16th, 1818)Siltzer (page 58) calls for nine plates, however the two additional plates that he calls for are titled "Hark to Old Danger" and "Pleasure of a View Halloo". In our copy "Hark to Old Danger" appears as the additional title on the first plate "Drawing a Cover" and "The pleasure of a view Holla" appears as the additional title on the second plate "Gone Away"."Siltzer, p.58 evidently did not see this early set. He gives a description of a set by Cooper and Sutherland of nine plates but apparently he mixed up the titles with the inscriptions, unless they were re-issued in that manner." (Schwerdt)."The aquatint process was developed to give the appearance of a water-colour and was used increasingly for over fifty years for large plates of grand views or small book-illustrations and for practically any subject, but it came to be used almost exclusively as the ideal medium for the best result in sporting prints. The sharp outlines and clear colouring gave them a briskness which sport required; horses seem to gallop and jump with greater verve in aquatint, while farm-horses munch more contentedly in mezzotint. Many engravers devoted themselves to the medium and, together with draughtsmen and colourists, enjoyed a steady livelihood with employment from such flourishing publishers as Rudolph Ackermann, Thomas McLean and Mesrrs. Fores. The method of soft-ground etching successfully simulated pencil-drawing and was used extensively for instructional drawing-books, but it was Henry Alken who used it constantly over many years in his albums with their countless cameos of sporting and comic incidents. Lithographs in hand-coloured form, although cheaper to produce, did not replace aquatints in popular esteem. Later in the century, the invention of chromolithography brought a high standard to colour printing, but initially it was to costly a process for the publisher of sporting prints."

        The Chapter of Kings. Illustrated by Thirty-eight Engravings Exhibiting the Most Important Events in English History

      J. Harris, London 1818 - 12mo, 5.25 by 4.25 inches, 14 by 11 cm. As noted in title, with 38 hand-colored plates depicting the kings of England. Each plate has a header caption relating a salient fact about the particular king, and the bottom caption carries a line of doggeril that rhymes with the facing page. The book was intended as an instructive text for children, as noted on the rear cover: "Parents and Teachers must have remarked the difficulty Children experience in recollecting the Succession of the English Monarchs, and likewise how much the memory is assited by rhyme." The blurb also notes the "correctness of the Costume and Design". Modern audiences will undoubtedly find the plates suffused with a gory charm, and this is also an early textbook featuring hand-coloring. Light wear to the binding as well as light soiling to the pages. Overall, quite clean and attractive. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
