      London: Henry Colburn, 1845. London: Henry Colburn, 1845.. Three volumes. Original forest green cloth, decorated in blind, spines lettered in gilt, edges untrimmed. Bindings faintly spotted and edgeworn, toe of first spine badly snagged (2 cm, with no loss), some marginal smudges and such as consistent with editorial use, else a good, bright set, in half morocco slipcase. Ownership signature of Rebecca Lightup in each volume. A proof copy of the first English edition, occasionally marked "Author's Proof," but in fact an in-house set of sheets, marked up by a proof-reader, with corrections to spelling, punctuation, pagination, imperfect leading and more, on about 75 pages. This, the third of Surtees' popular sporting novels, features once again his most famous creation, the 'jolly, free-and-easy, fox-hunting grocer,' Jorrocks, who buys a manor and runs for Parliament. The novel, a satire on the Anti-Corn League, had been serialised in 1844 in the NEW SPORTING MAGAZINE, a publication Surtees had helped found, and also appeared in a New York edition in that year. Proof copies of Victorian three-deckers survive only infrequently. In this set, some gatherings are marked "R" as read, two noting more specifically "Read Sept. 22 F.W." A further gathering bears the head-note "M.W. Author's proof. read back." The changes in this gathering are more substantial than elsewhere, altering for example "an order was despatched" to "a messenger was despatched" (vol. II, p. 116), and modifying the spellings of the name "Tompkins" (p. 105). Though the hand is that of a proof-reader, it is most likely that it reflects authorial corrections made to another proof set. SADLEIR 3163.

        THE ENGLISH STRUWWELPETER or Pretty Stories and Funny Pictures for Little Children. After the tenth edition of the celebrated German work.

      24 pages printed and hand-coloured on rectos only. Original printed paper-covered boards. Quarto. Second English edition. Lacking rear blank endpaper; original covers with loss of some of the printed paper surface and generally cracked and rubbed; spine repaired and some paper restoration to covers; juvenile scribble on page 20 ['O Dear.']; some spotting and soiling internally, but generally very good and, overall, an acceptable copy of a very early edition. Contained in a morocco-backed folding box. Originally published in Germany in 1845 as Lustige Geschichten und drollige Bilder, with only 15 pages, the book was expanded and renamed Struwwelpeter in 1847. Hoffmann instructed his publishers to issue the book in strong boards but with a frail paper spine, hoping that children would quickly read the book to pieces, and parents be forced to buy another copy; this accounts for the dearth of copies surviving in original boards. As with all genuine copies of early printings, the government's tax stamp appears on the upper board. The book was first published in English in 1848.

        The Works of that Learned and Judicious Divine Mr. Richard HookerIn Three Volumes

      Oxford - The University Press, 1845. Oxford - The University Press, 1845 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An attractive set of anthologies containing the theologicaland scholastic essays from Anglican priest and influential theologian, Richard Hooker. Third edition. Featuring two folding plates to volume one; onegenealogicaltable anda facsimile of notes by Hooker, Cranmer, and Sandys. Collated complete. Hooker's emphases on reason, tolerance and the value of tradition came to exert a lasting influence on the development of the Church of England. In retrospect he has been taken (with Thomas Cranmer and Matthew Parker) as a founder of Anglican theological thought. With an Account of his Life and Death, by Isaac Walton. King James I is quoted by Walton as saying, I observe there is in Mr. Hooker no affected language; but a grave, comprehensive, clear manifestation of reason, and that backed with the authority of the Scriptures, the fathers and schoolmen, and with all law both sacred and civil. Hooker's emphasis on Scripture, reason, and tradition considerably influenced the development of Anglicanism, as well as many political philosophers, including John Locke. This edition is important both for the editorial revisions discussed in Kebles Preface and for the comments that Keble, one of the leaders of the Oxford movement, makes about Hooker. (Cited from the catalogue to The Antiquarian Library Of Emeritus Professor David A. Pailin. )From the private library of theologian and professor of philosophy, David A. Pailin. Complete in three volumes. Condition: Rebound in smart half calf bindings with cloth covered boards. Externally, all volumes are smart with only some light rubbing.

        Biographical and Critical Miscellanies

      London - Richard Bentley, 1845. London - Richard Bentley, 1845 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. William H. Prescott&#39;s Biographical and Critical Miscellanies. Direct from the library at Newton Hall, the 18th century country house and estate in Northumberland, with a pencil shelfmark to the front free-endpaper, and the armorial bookplate of S. E. Widdrington to the front pastedown. Bound in cloth with gilt lettering. First Edition. Black and white frontis with tissue guard. Essays include Irving&#39;s Conquest of Granada, Cervantes, Sir Walter Scott, Moliere, Italian Narrative Poetry, and Scottish Song. The following Essays, with a single exception, have been selected from contributions originally made to the North American Review. They are purely of a literary character; and as they have little reference to local or temporary topics, and as the Journal in which they appeared, though the most considerable in the United States, is not widely circulated in Great Britain, it has been thought that a republication of the Articles might have some novelty and interest for the English reader - Preface. William Hickling Prescott (17961859) was an American historian, known for his books The History of the Reign of Ferdinand and Isabella the Catholic and The History of the Conquest of Mexico. In all his works he displayed great research, impartiality, and an admirable narrative power. Prescott was a man of amiable and benevolent character, and enjoyed the friendship of many of the most distinguished men in Europe as well as in America. Samuel Edward Widdrington (formerly Cook), 1787 - 1856, was an English writer. Having served as a Captain in the Royal Navy, he lived for some years in Spain. He served as High Sheriff of Northumberland in 1854. He was a fellow of the Royal Society, and the Royal Geographical Society. By royal license he assumed the name Widdrington, and purchased the moiety in 1842. He inherited the Newton Hall estate from his father, Joseph Cook. Condition: The binding is generally tight and firm. The inner hinges are very slightly strained. There is only some mild wear to the extremities, with just some mild sunning to the spine, and slight bumping. Internally the pages have very mild browning to the page edges, with the occsaional spot,becoming prominent to the first few pages. Overall the condition is very good..

        The Illustrated Family Bible

      Glasgow - Francis Orr and Sons, 1845. Glasgow - Francis Orr and Sons, 1845 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A large, attractively boundfamily Bible, with notes from Reverend John Brown. John Brown of Haddington (1722 1787), was a Scottish divine and author. His works include The Self-Interpreting Bible, The Dictionary of the Bible, and A General History of the Christian Church. The Self Interpreting Bible was Brown&#39;s most significant work, and it remained in print (edited by others), until well into the twentieth century. The objective of providing a commentary for ordinary people was very successful. The idea that the Bible was self-interpreting involved copious marginal references, especially comparing one scriptural statement with another. Brown also provided a substantial introduction to the Bible, and added an explication and reflections for each chapter. With blank family register to front. Coloured title pages to some of the gospels, presumed complete. Condition: In a decorative morocco binding with gilt detailing. Externally sound, with some rubbing and some marks to the boards. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are mainly clean, with just the odd spot. Overall: VERY GOOD..
