        The Ship-Builder’s Manual, and Nautical Referee

      NY., 1856.. Sepia frontispiece, b/w plates. This is a rare work, not to be confused with the earlier (1850) and more common “Treatise on Marine Architecture.” In this book Griffiths concentrates less on the theoretical and more on the technical, “nuts and bolts”, aspects of construction. He includes material on timbers and timbering, scantlings, fastenings, spars, ground tackle, sails and rigging, and much more of the kinds of information that would be useful to an actual shipwright. This book also contains 17 sets of lines and diagrams. Brewington says, “Griffiths works of great value. Contain many plates of lines, details, masting rules, tables of off-sets, etc.” Brewington Bib. NYPL list p. 315. This is the second, expanded, edition (first was 1853), with new material and four index pages. Bound in original quarter leather over boards with gold spine lettering. Title page lightly foxed, with private owner’s embossed stamp in lower right. Scattered light foxing, with occasional text pages more heavily foxed. A very good copy of a very scarce book. Worldcat shows only six American libraries holding copies.

        D'Albert's Album 1856

      London.: Chappell & Co.. 1856.. Gift book, 14 x 10.25 inches, 131 pp. featuring music by Charles D'Albert and chromolithographic plates by John Brandard. Pebbled cover with gilt lettering; covers loose; corners bumped; spine cracked with substantial loss of covering. Text block remains tightly bound. Volume contains five chromolithographic plates after Brandard (with possible additional hand coloring) plus title page also by Brandard. The six exquisite plates were printed by M. & N. Hanhart. Volume contains music for eighteen compositions by D'Albert. Contents in good clean condition. The five large color plates in this volume represent illustrations used for cover art when D'Albert's compositions were published and sold individually. Space at the top and bottom of the chromo illustrations, left blank as published in the Album, would have been utilized in the sheet music's solo edition for printing the composition's title at top and, at bottom, publisher details. As preserved in the Album, the five chromolithographic plates (plus title) are in near mint condition. (The Presentation page is printed in monochrome and is unattributed.) D'Albert's music with Brandard's illustrations are quite scarce in Album format. The five plates illustrate musical compositions entitled Angelina; The Mountain Daisy; Geneva; The Queen of Gipsies; The Bacchante. .
