Dolby's Parliamentary Register
London: T Dolby, 1820. In his attempt to deprive his estranged wife of her title, the newly crowned George IV unwittingly turned her into a focus for anti-government and anti-monachical sentiment. The trial of the presumptive Queen before the House of Lords became the arena in which this political battle was fought. Among other things, the trial led to the birth of so-called 'tabloid' coverage of the monarchy, and as such was a watershed moment for the relationship between the monarchy and an increasingly powerful free British press. For example, it was alleged that Caroline employed exotic male dancers: and the dance was even demonstrated in court. In response, Caroline's attorney, Lord Brougham, threatened to reveal details of the King's private life that he felt would damage the monarchy. The first volume contains the prosecution, the second the defence. This parliamentary report was originally supressed, resulting in copies of this first issue being scarce. The pagination carries from the Dolby Parliamentary Register. The relevant sections have essentially been excised and bound into a discrete work. Volume two is lacking a title page, and is missing pages 1638-1671, with pages 827-858 from volume one apparently bound in instead by mistake. While the pagination is occasionally irregular, this appears to be the only loss. CONDITION In half calf with marbled boards. Externally sound, with some rubbing to the edges and spines. Internally, firmly bound. There is some light marking to the boards. Internally a little age toned with some light foxing here and there. The mispla … [Click Below for Full Description]

A Full Report Of The Trial Of Her Majesty Caroline Amelia Elizabeth, Queen of England, Before The Peers Of Great Britain
1820. In his attempt to deprive his estranged wife of her title, the newly crowned George IV unwittingly turned her into a focus for anti-government and anti-monachical sentiment. The trial of the presumptive Queen before the House of Lords became the arena in which this political battle was fought. Among other things, the trial led to the birth of so-called 'tabloid' coverage of the monarchy, and as such was a watershed moment for the relationship between the monarchy and an increasingly powerful free British press. For example, it was alleged that Caroline employed exotic male dancers: and the dance was even demonstrated in court. In response, Caroline's attorney, Lord Brougham, threatened to reveal details of the King's private life that he felt would damage the monarchy. The first volume contains the prosecution, the second the defence. This parliamentary report was originally supressed, resulting in copies of this first issue being scarce. The pagination carries from the Dolby Parliamentary Register. The relevant sections have essentially been excised and bound into a discrete work. Volume two is lacking a title page, and is missing pages 1638-1671, with pages 827-858 from volume one apparently bound in instead by mistake. While the pagination is occasionally irregular, this appears to be the only loss. CONDITION In half calf with marbled boards. Externally sound, with some rubbing to the edges and spines. Internally, firmly bound. There is some light marking to the boards. Internally a little age toned with some light foxing here and there.

The Poetical Works of Walter Scott, Esq.
Twelve Volumes, complete. Rebound with the original boards, except Volume X. A letter concerning this set of Walter Scott, from Henry Babington Smith, dated May 1923, is contained herewith. There is an ink inscription on the front blank of Volume 1 from Mary Babington, dated 1820. With Henry Prior's bookseller label on the front pastedown of Volumes I-IX, and XI-XII. Volume X is bound by Maltbys of Oxford. Sir Walter Scott, 1st Baronet, 1771 -1832, was a prolific Scottish historical novelist and poet popular throughout Europe during his time and is considered by some as responsible for inventing the modern historical novel. After Scott had founded a printing press, his poetry, beginning with The Lay of the Last Minstrel brought him fame. He published a number of other poems over the next ten years, including the popular The Lady of the Lake. Whilst Scott is considerably more popular as an author, his poetry is not to be overlooked. Sir Henry Babington Smith GBE CH KCB CSI, 1863 - 1923, was a senior British civil servant. He was educated at Eton College and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he read classics. Amongst his numerous positions, Babington Smith became principal private secretary to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, private secretary to Lord Elgin on his appointment as Viceroy of India, and Treasury representative in the South African War. In 1900 he became British representative on the Council of Administration of the Ottoman Public Debt, becoming its chairman in 1901. In 1903 he returned home to become secretary to the General Post Office. In 1909 he became presid … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Busby, Thomas Lord].
Samuel Leigh, 1820. Dress of the lower-class denizens of the streets of London, depicted in => 23 hand-colored plates: vibrant, expressive representations of characters including the ballad singer, the watchman, the chimney sweep, and the scissors grinder, along with sellers of matches, watercress, milk, mackerel -- not to mention the raree showman, plus the (metaphorical?) horn-blower of the engraved title-page. Many sources attribute these plates to Thomas Busby, and the title-page is signed "T.L.B."; the images here are not identical to those in Busby's Costume of the Lower Orders of London, and Lipperheide hints that they might have been done by another hand inspired by Busby's work, with 13 of them differing in subject matter entirely. (In the same vein, these are not the images of Rowlandson's Characteristic Sketches of the Lower Orders, although the Lilly Library notes similarities between some of the designs here with those in Beall E40). Binding: Signed 19th-century half brown morocco and marbled paper-covered sides, leather edges ruled in double gilt fillets, spine with gilt-stamped title and gilt-stamped decorations above and below two raised bands surrounding title. Top edge gilt. Front free endpaper stamped "Morrell binder." Provenance: Back pastedown with ticket of New York bookseller William Salloch; most recently in the children's book collection of Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

Glasgow: R. Chapman for M. Ogle, 1820. First Edition. Original publisher's quarter leather over paper boards with label to front cover. Head of spine carefully restored; some rubbing and soiling to boards. Collates xii, 180 pages: complete, with engraved pictorial title page depicting girls at school desks, as well as letterpress title. Some dust-staining to top of text block and minor foxing to front and rear pastedowns; else a tight and clean copy. This important title in women's education and employment is quite rare, with no other copies on the market and none in the auction records. OCLC reports that of the 8 copies known worldwide, only 3 are held at US institutions. Sole edition of one of the few nineteenth century books specifically designed to give women career-oriented training in mathematics. As the women's movement in the UK pushed to expand access to employment and promoted women's economic autonomy, it became clear that limited access to education in math hindered advancement. Morrison's arithmetic text sought to fill this gap. "The utility and importance of a general knowledge of Figures and Accounts to Females , in every condition of life, from the titled Heiress to the Tradesman's Daughter, cannot be denied...It is not uncommon to see families reduced to indigence and want, by the ignorance of a husband...but, in a business over which the prudent and intelligent wife has a due control, such misery is seldom if ever witnessed." For Morrison, as for the leaders of the women's movement, education was an equalizer; and mathematics opened the door for women of a … [Click Below for Full Description]
