Embossed Red cloth with recent leather spines (remnants of original spines mounted and laid in) Maps are about fine, about 9-1/2x12-1/2". original outline color; 360pgs. A couple pages roughly opened with marginal loss at top edge, several marginal repairs (archival tape) ; an very good set. The British Dominions in North America; or a Topographical and Statistical Description of the Provinces of Lower and Upper Canada, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, the Islands of Newfoundland, Prince Edward, and Cape Breton, Including Considerations on Land-Granting and Emigration.(TALLIS MAPS) THE BRITISH COLONIES, Vol I & II 8" x 11.3" 7 portraits.Vol. 1: Queen Anne, Prince Rupert, William Pitt, Sir Francis Drake (1/4" rounded top right corner)Vol. 2: Vignette title page, Sir Walter Raleigh, Francis Bacon, Queen Elizabeth6 Tallis maps (double page). The World (on Mercator's Projection), British America, East Canada and New Brunswick, West Canada, North America, Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. First published in 1834 and extensively revised and extended over the next twenty years, Martin's comprehensive account of the British Colonies encapsulates the remarkable growth of the British Empire under Queen Victoria, although it is perhaps now most notable for the fine series of highly decorative handcoloured Tallis maps that illustrate it. It has proved a work "puzzling" (Hocken) or "difficult" (Ferguson) to collate and the numerous editions are difficult to identify.This set is not complete but it does contain 7 very nice English Royalty portraits and 5 Tallis Maps on British American with two volumes of support pages of information on Canada.

        Notes and Queries

      William John Thoms, 1850 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An extensive set of early issues of the long runningliterary periodical Notes and Queries. Eleven volumes bound in half leather. Encompassing issues No. 1 November 3rd 1849 to Dec 29th 1855, missing July 1853 to Dec 1854 (volume viii). Notes and Queries is a long-running quarterly scholarly journal that publishes short articles related to English language and literature, lexicography, history, and scholarly antiquarianism. The journal has a long history, having been established in 1849 in London; it is now published by Oxford University Press. Notes and Queries was first published in 1849 as a weekly periodical edited by W. J. Thoms. It was founded as an academic correspondence magazine, in which scholars and interested amateurs could exchange knowledge on literature and history. The format consisted of Notes (miscellaneous findings of correspondents that they and the editors considered of interest to the readership), and Queries (and responses to queries), which formed the bulk of the publication. The magazine has been likened to a nineteenth century version of a moderated Internet newsgroup. Condition: The bindings are generally tight and firm. However, the back inner hinge of vol vis taped and the front board of vol vi is detached. Some of the title labels are missing. There is some wear to the extremities, including some fading and rubbing with loss to the leather. The pages are generally clean and bright with mild spotting to the first and last few pages of some of the volumes. Overall the condition is good..

      Boston, 1850. 20.3 x 13.5 cm, half-fold menu. Ornately decorated and hand-colored dinner menu marking the twentieth anniversary of Harvard's Class of 1830.

A Boston landmark, the Exchange Coffee House on Congress Street was destroyed by fire in 1818, yet Yale historian Paul Freeman notes an 1830 meal held there, indicating its continued presence into the mid-19th century.
