(American Gift Book).
Thomas T. Ash, 1839. A multivariously fascinating and gorgeous American gift book. Following an illustrated title-page in sepia by Scottish engraver W.H. Lizars are numerous poems, quotations, short essays, and illustrations printed for the reader's enjoyment on heavy green, gray, and cream paper. Typically these sentiments are surrounded by ornately embossed frames, sometimes lavished as many as half a dozen or eight to a page, with other framed pages featuring a single significant flower, bird, or other image as an embossed illustration at center; e.g., a rose, a stork, a spray of heart's-ease, a child at prayer. => In this copy one flower -- endearingly, the forget-me-not -- has been daintily hand-colored. Also included are four full-page illustrations of Biblical scenes after Benjamin West and engraved by H. Moses. This was clearly => meant to be an autograph and friendship album in addition to a gift book, as blank leaves, many with variously sized embossed frames ready for inscriptions, are bound throughout. The intention was fulfilled in the only reported library-held copy, at Yale, to which friends and family of Leicester A.Sawyer added signatures, notes, essays, and quotations in manuscript, before his leaving New Haven. Binding: Hunter green embossed morocco, later spine with compartments containing blind-stamped wreaths and title lettered in gilt; original covers with single-ruled gilt borders and front one with title embraced by laurel fronds gilt in a blind-defined center circle. All else in blind on both covers: Clouds surround the central circle and s … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pardoe, (Julia); Illustrated by William H Bartlett
London: George Virtue, 1839. Hardcover. Near Fine. Hardcover. A beautiful copy of this exceedingly popular travel book. English writer Julia Pardoe (1806-1862) traveled to Turkey with her father in 1836. She was quite taken by the culture and history of the country and wrote this book as a result. It was issued in various editions over several years. Part of its popularity was due to the splendid steel engravings done from drawings by William H. Bartlett. Bartlett (1809-1854) was considered one of the foremost illustrators of topography of his generation. There are 78 illustrations, including a frontispiece of Miss Pardoe and a map of the region, all protected by tissue guards. There is some offsetting to the tissue guards from the plates but the illustrations are in fine condition. Bound in a sumptuous full red leather with extensive gilt decorations and illustrations on both covers and spine. Some light chipping to spine and edges but still very good. A.e.g. Hinges are tender but text block is tight. Interior pages are clean and in near fine condition. Gift inscription dated 1840 to free front endpaper. Measures 8.25 x 11 inches. 164 pages with unnumbered plates. TRAVEL/082417.
