        A plan of communication between the New and the Old town of Edinburgh, in the line of the earthen Mound, and of building upon that site, with observations and ground-plans Second edition, greatly enlarged, with additional plates

      Edinburgh; Oliver & Boyd; Simpkin & Marshall, London; and Robertson & Atkinson, Glasgow. 1829. 4to., with 6 large folding lithographic plates, (2) + 15 + (1) + 2 + (2)pp., together with numerous additional blank leaves, in a fine later binding of half calf gilt over marbled boards. A fine copy sometime in the library of Charles Sebag-Montefiore with his armorial bookplate>. This was Trotter's detailed proposal for the levelling of the Mound, the construction on the Mound of a fine neo-classical shopping arcade, and the provision of a new road across the Mound linking the New Town and the Old Town of Edinburgh. The shopping arcade was evidently at the heart of Trotter's enthusiastic scheme. It would be truly multi-functional, providing not only a shopping experience to rival London or Venice, but also galleries for modern art, a shelter from the violent winds 'so prevalent in the Good Town of Edinburgh', an attractive rendez-vous for 'the Belles and Beaux', and the daily flow of 'Judges and Gentlemen of the Law, Professors and others connected with the University' would all 'contribute to the prosperity of the Shopkeeper'. The Arcade (which would have a sophisticated system of central heating) would more resemble the Burlington Arcade in London, or the Galleries of Paris, surpassing them all in situation, as every shop would have the double advantage of fronting a principal street, as well as in having a front into a Gallery so eminently calculated to attract the great population of Edinburgh'.The plates here not only give a detailed view of both the elevation and the plan of the proposed Arcade, but also fine lithographic perspective drawings of the Old Town and its proposed access from Princes Street. In fact, Trotter's designs were never implemented.

        The Wept of Wish Ton-Wish: A tale

      Philadelphia, 1829 2 volumes. i-[x]-251 pages; 234+[6 ad] pages. Small octavo (7 1/4" x 4 1/2") bound in full leather with black label to spine in gilt lettering. (BAL: 3844) First American edition. Published in London first in the same year.Cooper was one of the most popular 19th-century American authors, and his work was admired greatly throughout the world. While on his death bed, the Austrian composer Franz Schubert wanted most to read more of Cooper's novels. Honoré de Balzac, the French novelist and playwright, admired him greatly. Henry David Thoreau, while attending Harvard, incorporated some of Cooper's style in his own work. Cooper was one of the first major American novelists to include African, African-American and Native American characters in his works. In particular, Native Americans play central roles in his Leatherstocking tales. However, his treatment of this group is complex and highlights the tenuous relationship between frontier settlers and American Indians as exemplified in , depicting a captured white girl who is taken care of by an Indian chief and who after several years is eventually returned to her parents. Often, he gives contrasting views of Native characters to emphasize their potential for good, or conversely, their proclivity for mayhem. Last of the Mohicans includes both the character of Magua, who is devoid of almost any redeeming qualities, as well as Chingachgook, the last chief of the Mohicans, is portrayed as noble, courageous, and heroic.Condition:Spine head chipped, exterior hinges beginning, old armorial book plates to front pastedowns else a very good set.

        Travels In Arabia, Comprehending An Account Of Those Territories In Hedjaz Which The Mohammedans Regarded As Sacred

      London: Henry Colburn, 1829. - 4to. pp. xvi [i.e. xv], [1]errata, 478. with half-title. 1 folding engraved map & 4 folding engraved plans. full calf antique (some foxing, generally light but a little stronger on first few leaves, folding map lightly embrowned, offsetting from maps & plans). First Edition. Burckhardt travelled throughout North Africa and the Middle East for seven years under the auspices of the Association For Promoting The Discovery Of The Interior Parts Of Africa. A master of the Arabic language and the Islamic religion, he assumed the guise of an Arab using the name of Sheikh Ibrahim in his travels. His journals are invaluable for their observations on the Arab people and for his important geographical discoveries, including the site of Petra, Apameia, and the general structure of the peninsula of Mount Sinai. The present account of Burckhardt’s journey to Mecca in 1814 and subsequent trip to Medina in 1815, edited by William Leake and William Ouseley, the third of five works published by the African Assocation after Burckhardt’s untimely death in 1817, contains "the most accurate and complete account of the Hedjaz, including the cities of Mekka and Medina, which has ever been received in Europe. His knowledge of the Arabic language, and of Mohammedan manners, had enabled him to assumne the Muselman character with such success, that he resided in Mekka during the whole time of the pilgrimage, and passed through the various ceremonies of the occasion, without the slightest suspicion having arisen as to his real character."

        Autograph Letter Signed

      Abbotsford, Melrose: April 9, 1829 Single leaf, handwritten ink; with the original envelope, handwritten in brown ink, with the original red sealing wax. Good, with some light creasing and minor splits at the page folds, some toning to the recto, light spotting and tape reinforcements to the versos. Overall, a clean and unsophisticated letter, written by Scott at his home at Abbotsford. Scott addressed this letter to Frederick Mansel Reynolds, son of the noted dramatist Frederick Reynolds and editor of the yearly literary magazine The Keepsake. Notably, Charles Theodosius Heath, the founder of Keepsake, hoped to employ Scott as the editor, but Scott declined the offer, choosing instead to contribute three shorter stories to The Keepsake of 1829, which are collectively known as "The Keepsake Stories:" "My Aunt Margaret's Mirror," "The Tapestried Chamber," and "Death of the Laird's Jock." This letter is accompanied by an engraved portrait of Scott by renowned Scottish engraver John Horsburgh after a painting by Sir Thomas Lawrence. This steel engraving was published in Philadelphia by Gebbie and Barrie circa 1876. Notably, this line engraving employs a mixture of engraving and etching to create rich details and a sense of depth without any tonal processes.. Good.

        Leben und Tod des Joseph Brehm, gewesten Helfers zu Reutlingen, am 18ten Juli 1829. Von Philipp Ulrich Schartenmaier

      Tübingen, Georg Heinrich Reiß 1829.. Mit lithograph. Portrait als Frontispiz und mehrfach gefalt. kolor. Lithographie (28 x 38 cm). 14 S., 1 w. Bl. Pappband d. Zt. So praktisch unauffindbare Ausgabe des berühmten "Schartenmaier-Gedichts"; die beiden einzigen Bibliotheksnachweise über KVK jeweils ohne die hier vorliegenden Illustrationen! - Am 30. 8. 1828 fand eine Nachbarin des Reutlinger Geistlichen Joseph Brehm (geb. 1790) eine Nachgeburt in dessen Toilette; seine Magd Anna Kohberger stand schon länger im Verdacht von Brehm geschwängert worden zu sein. Eine sofort angestellte amtsärztliche Untersuchung bestätigte die Vermutung einer kurz vorher stattgefundenen Geburt, der Leichnam des Kindes wurde im Keller des Hauses von Brehm gefunden. Im Verhör gestand Brehm, er habe der Mutter nach der heimlichen Hausgeburt das Kind entzogen und es letztendlich erwürgt um der Schande in der Gemeinde zu entgehen. Das Todesurteil gegen Joseph Brehm wurde am 18. 7. 1829 vollstreckt. - Aus der in Württemberg aufsehenerregenden Geschichte machte der junge, später bedeutende Literaturwissenschaftler und Philosoph Friedrich Theodor Vischer (1807-1887) die hier vorliegende Moritat auf den Tag der Hinrichtung, die mit dem Vierzeiler endet: "Laut hört man es knarveln, schallen, Und der Kopf ist rab gefallen; O verehrtes Publikum, Bring doch keine Kinder um!" - Die schöne kolorierte Tafel zeigt Brehm in einer Kutsche auf dem Weg zur Richtstatt. - Fliegender Vorsatz mit zeitgen. Namenseintrag Autenrieth. Rücken berieben.

        The Practical Gardener. Volume I & II

      London.: Thomas Kelly.. 1829-1830.. VOLUME I AND VOLUME II FROM DIFFERENT EDITIONS: Volume I with a title page copyright 1830 (in addition to pictorial title page dated 1828); volume II title page is copyright 1829. BINDING OF VOLUMES DOES NOT MATCH. VOLUME I: Hard back volume, 8.25 x 5.5 inches, leather binding, xxviii+554pp, with pagination beginning with the Preface (iii thru viii) and a brief history of gardening (ix thru xxviii). The boards are scuffed and mottled with one plum-sized stain. 3.5 inch vertical crack (repaired) to front joint. The spine itself is dry and cracked and bumped at top and bottom. The bulk of the book (pp 1 thru 554) gives focus to the Culinary (or Kitchen) Garden and to the Fruit Garden. The volume contains a feebly imagined engraved frontispiece (tears and stains in margins of free edges) and four beautifully hand-colored plates depicting fruit: strawberry, pineapple, pear and apple (three dated 1828; one 1829). These plates suffer modest toning, light soiling and a light dampstain (.25 inch at deepest point) across the top margin, a condition also affecting, less detrimentally, the text portion of the Fruit Garden. The text remains tightly bound, save for a single loose page in the Fruit Garden section. VOLUME II: Hard back volume, 8.5 x 5.5 inches, half-leather binding, with pagination beginning at p. 555 and ending on index p. 1120. A 142 pp. Supplement follows the primary text; it is in two parts: "The Stove" and "Nursery and Planting." The last page provides Directions to the Binder and, on verso, an advert for "a new and elegant work" by McIntosh entitled "Flora and Pomona." The volume contains twenty-three full page plates, ten beautifully hand-colored depicting flowering plants. A black and white plate entitled Late Forcing Pit has suffered a vertical tear; only half the plate remains. The placement of plates appears to match the instructions to the binder appearing at the rear of the book. The volume is missing the front free end paper; previous owner's address on the blank page preceding the title page. One inch split to top of front joint. The index and final page at rear have separated from the text block and are held in place by the rear free end paper, resulting in wear to the fore-edge of these sheets. Scattered light foxing to the text block and black and white plates, the color plates are in very good condition: clean and bright. This was an extremely popular work which was published in several editions over a matter of just a few years, as the rage for gardening spread among the expanding British middleclass.. VOLUME I: The complete information on the title page reads: "The Practical Gardener, and Modern Horticulturist; containing the latest and most approved methods for the management of the kitchen, fruit and flower garden, the green house, hot house etc. etc. for every month in the year; each department being distinctly and separately arranged; illustrated by numerous designs of the most eligible plans for the formation of Kitchen and Pleasure Gardens, the erection of hot houses, hot beds, green houses, conservatories, walls, fences, etc. etc. including the New Method of Heating Forcing-Houses with Hot Water Only; forming a complete system of modern practice, in the various branches of Horticultural Science. Embellished with highly finished engravings of some of the most choice and valuable fruits and flowers now cultivated in this country. By Charles McIntosh CMCHS Late Gardener to the Right Honorable the Earl of Braedalbane, and Sir Thomas Baring," etc. The first chapter is a brief history entitled "The Rise and Progress of Gardening"; subsequent sections are entitled "The Culinary Garden" and "The Fruit Garden," both of which are organized by the months of the year, beginning in January, with a discussion of gardening activities appropriate to the season and the specific vegetable or fruit. The final chapter consists of "The Forcing Garden" (or Hot House Garden) The four color plates are most attractive, with condition issues noted. VOLUME II: The complete information on the title page reads: "The Practical Gardener, and Modern Horticulturist; containing the latest and most approved methods for the management of the kitchen, fruit and flower garden, the green house, hot house etc. etc. for every month in the year; each department being distinctly and separately arranged; illustrated by numerous designs of the most eligible plans for the formation of Kitchen and Pleasure Gardens, the erection of hot houses, hot beds, green houses, conservatories, walls, fences, etc. etc. including the New Method of Heating Forcing-Houses with Hot Water Only; forming a complete system of modern practice, in the various branches of Horticultural Science.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Zürich, 10. V. 1829.. 1 S. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief).. An den Apotheker Pfluger in Solothurn: "Da die gute Jahreszeit nun eingetreten ist um die begonnenen Untersuchungen in Baden fortzusetzen, so komme ich, um Sie zu fragen, ob Ihre Gesundheit u. übrigen Verhältnisse die Hoffnung gestatten, daß Sie in Verbindung mit Hl. Bauhof die analytische Arbeit der Quellen in so weit vollenden möchten, um das Ganze der Versammlung der Naturf[orschenden] Gesellsch[aft] im July vorlegen zu können [...]". - Der promovierte Mediziner war auf Studienreisen in Wien und in der Schweiz unterwegs, deren Durchwanderung er 1793 in seiner vielfach aufgelegten "Anleitung, auf die nützlichste und genussvollste Art in der Schweiz zu reisen" beschrieb. "Seit 1794 betrieb Ebel in Frankfurt/Main eine Arztpraxis, wurde jedoch als Übersetzer der politischen Schriften des französischen Staatsmannes Emmanuel Sieyes revolutionärer Ideen verdächtigt, mußte die Stadt 1796 verlassen und siedelte nach Paris über, wo er bis 1801 lebte. Hier betrieb er medizinische Forschungen und beschäftigte sich mit der schweizerischen Politik und deren Reformen, worauf ihm 1801 das helvetische und 1820 das Zürcher Bürgerrecht verliehen wurde" (DBE). Nach einem kurzen Aufenthalt in Deutschland ließ Ebel sich 1810 ganz in Zürich nieder, wo er sich geologischen Forschungen widmete und eine Reihe geognostischer Werke veröffentlichte, zudem mit zahlreichen bedeutenden Gelehrten und Politikern seiner Zeit wie Wilhelm von Humboldt, Joseph Görres und Friedrich Carl von Savigny in Verbindung stand und die Autobiographie Ulrich Bräkers herausgab.

        The only extant fair copy of Alexander Hamilton's most historic 1792 letter to George Washington accusing Thomas Jefferson of subverting the administration: " ?I know that I have been an object of uniform opposition from Mr. Jefferson, from the first moment of his coming to the City of New York?" while insisting that he defended Jefferson when "?the Vice-President, by his indiscreet and light letter to the Printer, transmitting Paine's pamphlet?" The letter is beautifully and painstakingly reproduced and signed by Hamilton's son a mere 3 years after Jefferson's death

      [Mount Vernon?], December 22, 1829. 8" x 9.75". "Fair Copy of an Autograph Letter Signed, ""A Hamilton,"" in the hand of his son, James Alexander Hamilton (1788-1878), 5 pages, 8"" x 9.75"", Philadelphia, September 9, 1792 to George Washington, docketed on verso as ""A true copy compared with the original Decr. 22d 1829 JAH."" Pages stitched together at the top left, expected folds with a few minor partial separations, final page toned, else very good. An early transcription of one of the most important letters written by Alexander Hamilton, likely undertaken at Mount Vernon where the majority of Washington's papers remained before Congress voted to acquire them (a process that commenced in 1834 and finally completed in 1849). Hamilton's transcription of his father's letter to Washington reads, in most part: ""...The feelings and views which are manifested in that letter are such as I expected would exist - And I most sincerely regret the causes of the uneasy sensations you experience. It is my most anxious wish, as far as may depend on me, to smooth the path of your administration, and to render it prosperous & happy. And if any prospect shall open of healing or terminating the differences which exist, I shall most chearfully [sic] embrace it; though I consider myself as the deeply injured party. The recommendation of such a spirit is worthy of moderation and wisdom which dictated it; and if your endeavours should prove unsuccessful, I do not hesitate to say that in my opinion the period is not remote when the public good will require substitutes for the differing members of your administration. The continuance of a division there must destroy the energy of Government, which will be little enough with the strictest Union?" on my part there will be a most chearful acquiescence in such a result. ""I trust, Sir, that the greatest frankness has always marked and will always mark every step of my conduct towards you. In this disposition, I cannot conceal from you that I have had some instrumentality of late in the retaliations which have fallen upon certain public characters and that I find myself placed in a situation not to be able to recede for the present. ""I considered my self as compelled to this conduct by reasons public as well as personal of the most cogent nature... I know that I have been an object of uniform opposition from Mr. Jefferson, from the first moment of his coming to the City of New York to enter upon his present office -- I know, from the most authentic sources, that I have been the frequent subject of the most unkind whispers & insinuations from the same quarter ?" I have long seen a formed party in the Legislature, under his auspices, bent upon my subversion ?" I cannot doubt, from the evidence I possess, that the National Gazette was instituted by him for political purposes and that one lading object of it has been to render me and all the measures connected with my Department as odious as possible?" ""Nevertheless I can truly say, that, except explanations to confidential friends, I never directly or indirectly retaliated or countenanced retaliation till very lately- I can even assure you, that I was instrumental in preventing a very severe and systematic attack on Mr. Jefferson, by an association of two or three individuals in consequence of the persecution, which he brought upon the Vice-President, by his indiscreet and light letter to the Printer, transmitting Paine's pamphlet. ""As long as I saw no danger to the Government, from the machinations which were going on, I resolved to be a silent sufferer of the injuries which were done me... I determined to avoid giving occasion to any thing which could manifest to the world dissentions among the principal characters of the government; a thing which can never happen without weakening its hands, and in some degree throwing a stigma upon it[.] ""But when I no longer doubted, that there was a formal party deliberately bent upon the subversion of measures, which in its consequences would subvert the Government when I see that the undoing of the funding system in particular (which whatever may be the original merits of that system, would prostrate the credit and the honor of the Nation, and bring the Government into contempt with that description of Men, who are in every society the only firm supporters of Government) was an avowed object of the party; and that all possible pains were taken to produce that effect by rendering it odious to the body of the people ?" I considered it as a duty, to endeavor to resist the torrent and as an essential mean[s] to this end to draw aside the veil from the principal Actors. To this strong impulse, to this decided conviction, I have yielded ?" And I think events will prove that I have judged rightly --- ""Nevertheless I pledge my honor to you, Sir, that if you shall hereafter form a plan to reunite the members of your administration, upon some steady principle of cooperation, I will faithfully concur in executing it during my continuance in office. And I will not directly or indirectly say or do a thing, that shall endanger a feud- ""I have had it very much at heart to make an excursion to Mount Vernon, by way of the Federal City in the course of this Month - and have been more than once on the point of asking your permission for it But I now despair of being able to effect it. I am nevertheless equally obliged by your kind invitation. ""The subject mentioned in the Postscript of your letter shall with great pleasure be carefully attended to -- With the most faithful and affectionate attachment I have the honor to remain."" ""P.S. I had written you two letters on public business, one of which will go with this; but the other will be withheld, in consequence of a slight indisposition of the Attorney General, to be sent by express sometime in the course of tomorrow?""" On the docket, John A. Hamilton takes pains to copy Washington's own docket: ""From Alexr Hamilton Esq 9th Septr. 1792 Private"" and matches exactly (in terms of line structure and abbreviations) the original letter from his father that is today housed at The Library of Congress. Below his rendering of Washington's docket, he writes: ""endorsed as above in Washington[']s Hand writing A true copy compared with the original Decr 22d 1829"" Hamilton also takes pains to copy his father's address that appeared opposite Washington's docket: ""Private President of the United States. Mount Vernon."" Exactly why Hamilton chose to copy this letter is not known. It does not appear in his memoirs, published in 1867, where he took pains to burnish his father's reputation (and besmirch that of Jefferson). However the letter did find its way into volume four his brother John C. Hamilton's multivolume set, Hamilton's Works, published in 1851 (pp. 303-305). The letter was again published in John C. Hamilton's biography of his father, Life of Alexander Hamilton in 1879. (Vol. V., pp. 71-73)."

        An autograph letter signed to 'My dear King' (the Reverend Arthur Septimus King, son of Captain Phillip Parker King); two pages, small octavo, dated 9 July 1846, regarding assistance with finding him a curacy

      - 'I can . write to the Bishop of Norwich, who has a great respect for your Father, to ask his advice about it, and I am sure he will do all he can for you, consistently with his rules of duty.' Rear-Admiral Sir William Edward Parry, Arctic explorer, spent the years 1829-34 in Australia as Commissioner of the Australian Agricultural Company, the role Captain King took over 'for ten eventful years' from 8 April 1834 (Dictionary of National Biography, and the Australian Dictionary of Biography). This serves to establish a connection between the parties (as if the hydrographical one wasn't enough). As for the rest, the 'career of Parry as an arctic explorer is to be best studied in his own Journals; his Life, written by his son Edward in 1857, which ran through many editions, dwells, with a natural bias, on the religious side of his character, which was strongly marked' (DNB). Accordingly, we won't go on about the glories of the polar days, but rest content in the knowledge that this item reflects a part of the whole .

Vorstellung" Paganinis bewirbt. Unter dem Portrait Paganinis, der in seiner typischen Spielhaltung abgebildet ist: "Übungen auf einer Saite. Doppelter Eingangspr." - Die anderen Plakate geben ein Nationaltheater als Veranstaltungsort an; es könnte sich um den Auftritt in Mannheim am 19. September 1829 handeln, die Tourneeorte Wien und Berlin hatten zwar auch Nationaltheater, die aber 1829 andere Namen trugen. - Gering fleckig. Rechte untere Ecke mit leichter Knickfalte.

Housed in a green board clamshell case with dark green morocco lettering labels on the front panel and the spine. From the library of Moncure Biddle of Philadelphia, Pa., with his armorial bookplate on inside of clamshell case.This rare suite of plates, which is unsigned (attributed to Seymour by Abbey), is a satiric 'poke' at the upper eschelons of society and their attempts to improve the quality of their lives by gaming, art, travel and romance.The third plate contains an amusing sketch "Aerostation" which depicts early nineteenth century BallooningThe plates: 1. ?"Frolic & Fashion,?" 2. ?"Rural Retirement,?" 3. ?"Arts & Sciences,?" 4. ?"Travelling. Pl. 1,?" 5. ?"Travelling,?" 6. ?"Courtship.?" We have previously had one copy of Search after the ?"Comfortable?" in the original wrappers. The uncut size of that example was 11 3/8 x 16 3/4 inches; 288 x 425 mm. The plates in the present copy measure 10 7/8 x 16 5/8 inches; 276 x 423 mm. Robert Seymour (1798?-1836) was a popular and prolific illustrator and satirical cartoonist specializing in sporting subjects, before Dickens burst upon the London scene in 1834. "Influenced by the work of caricaturist George Cruikshank (1792-1878), Seymour gave up a career as a draftsman to devote himself to illustration, beginning under the pseudonym ?'Short Shanks.?' By 1830, his political caricatures were widely circulated through the satirical journals Figaro in London and The Looking-Glass, or McLean?'s Monthly. Highly strung and extremely sensitive about his status as an artist, Seymour was emotionally and mentally unstable, having suffered a nervous breakdown in 1830. His first Dickens illustration accompanied an extract from the early sketch ?'The Bloomsbury Christening?' in Seymour?'s Comic Album (1834). For the early short story ?'The Tuggses at Ramsgate?' Seymour provided two plates for Chapman and Hall?'s Library of Fiction (April, 1836). In 1835, Edward Chapman (1824-1880) and William Hall (1801?-1847) published a series of Seymour cartoons in the Squib Annual of Poetry, Politics, and Personalities with great success. With Seymour?'s sporting illustrations in mind, the partners now approached the up-and-coming young writer Charles Dickens to provide a series of ?'sketches?' to accompany a series of comic plates by Seymour. The offer of £14 3s. 6d. per month to write ?'The Adventures of the Nimrod Club?' was made to Dickens by Hall in person on 10 February, 1836, just two days after Sketches by Boz was published…However, the young writer countered that his stories should be the focus of the project and that Seymour?'s two plates should complement the monthly, serialised text. The first monthly part, in what would become the green wrapper familiar to so many Victorian households, went on sale on 31 March 1836 at the price of one shilling. According to Dickens's conception, Pickwick was a fat, jolly middle-class Londoner reminiscent of Shakespeare?'s Falstaff, and not the thin rake of Seymour?'s initial drawing…On 20 April 1836, having seen his project for a monthly series of plates involving the comic misadventures of a club Cockney sportsmen overtaken by young Charles Dickens?'s ?'commentary,?' Seymour returned home to begin a fresh design according to the young writer?'s instructions; them [sic], humiliated and frustrated, he rushed into the summer-house in his Islington garden, set up his gun with a string on its trigger, and shot himself in the head. Thus, only the first two parts of The Pickwick Papers were illustrated by Seymour, who had completed only one of the two plates for Part Two, and a total of seven plates for the series?" (Philip V. Allingham, ?"Robert Seymour (d. 1836), A Biographical Sketch?" at http://www.victorianweb.org/art/illustration/seymour/pva213.html).?"Despite the enormous output of Seymour, very little of his work was coloured, his illustrations being mostly woodcuts or etchings. It will be remembered that Seymour originated the idea of a series of Cockney sporting sketches to be published in monthly parts. The idea was taken up by Chapman and Hall, who engaged Dickens to write the letterpress. From this grew the famous Pickwick Papers?" (Abbey, Life, 320, describing New Readings of Old Authors).OCLC locates only one copy (University Club Library, New York). Abbey, Life, 318. Tooley 451.
