        The Duke's Children 3 Volumes

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1880. London: Chapman and Hall, 1880. Hard Cover. Very Good. Hard Cover. FIRST EDITION. Three volumes in the original cloth. This book was never reprinted in its original triple decker form (Sadleir). It is the last book of Trollope';s wonderful Palliser series. The six books of the series follow the lives of Plantagenet Palliser, later the Duke of Omnium, and his wife, Lady Glencora. She is one of Trollope';s most memorable characters, full of life and personality. The book is bound in dark blue-green cloth with block design on front cover, and spine with gilt title, author, and publisher. The bindings are in very good condition with some bumping to boards and spine edges. The interior pages are quite clean with the usual aging to the page margins. In Volume I the rear hinge is cracked, although the binding is otherwise tight. There is a diagonal tear across the top right of the first page of each volume, with a few words from the first four lines of the recto missing. Volumes II and III are tender but holding tight. Very nice except for the odd tears to the first page of each book. Volume I: 320 pages; Volume II: 327 pages; Volume III: 312 pages. LIT/010913.

        Pugilistica Being One Hundred and Forty-Four Years of the History of British Boxing.

      London:: Weldon & Co., , [1880]. 3 Vols., 8vo, decorative brown cloth, gilt stamped spine and cover, top edges gilt, illustrated, 507, 538 [6], 528, [6] pp. Hinges are a bit weak or cracked in all three volumes, but still reasonably firm, some extremity and spine wear, some aging and browning, scattered foxing, signature on all three half titles, corner chips to some endpapers, paper just a bit brittle, tissue guard facing frontispiece of volume one is loose; otherwise about very good, and an attractive set. A wonderful set on British boxing history, when British boxing was boxing. The gilt illustration of fighters on the covers represents Daniel Mendoza and Richard Humphreys who fought three legendary fights at the close of the 18th century. Humphreys? arm is actually still featured at pub in England. The author was a well-respected fight reporter that knew the sport well. His history starts in the early 18th century with fighters like James Fig to Tom Sayers more than 100 years later. While other boxing titles like The Fancy and Boxiana cover some of the same ground, this work is considered by many as the most comprehensive on the subject. Hartley 1365.

      J. D. Young, Supt.

      London: C. Kegan Paul, 1880. Very fine, and very handsome. Edited from the First Edition of 1531 by Henry Herbert Stephen Croft Two volumes. cxcviii, 352p; x, 660p. Illustrated with frontispieces of Sir Thomas and Lady Elyot. Bound by Frost in half brown crushed morocco with cloth sides and marbled endpapers, t.e.g., the spines with gilt titles and panel ornaments This wotk is known chiefly as the first work on education in English. While it aimed at the education of princes, it was used by the upper classes as a model.& "The twofold object of this work was 'to instruct men in such virtues as shall be expedient for them, which shall have authority in a weal public, and to educate those youths that hereafter may be deemed worthy to be governors." (DNB Vol. IV, p. 765).& '"Elyot received little reward for his services to the state, but his scholarship and his books were held in high esteem by his contemporaries. The Boke named the Governour was printed by Thomas Berthelet (1531, 1534, 1536, 1544, etc.). It is a treatise on moral philosophy, intended to direct the education of those destined to fill high positions, and to inculcate those moral principles which alone could fit them for the performance of their duties. The subject was a favourite one in the 16th century, and the book, which contained many citations from classical authors, was very popular. Elyot expressly acknowledges his obligations to Erasmus's Institutio Principis Christiani but he makes no reference to the De regno et regis institutione of Francesco Patrizzi (d. 1494), bishop of Gaeta, on which his work was undoubtedly modelled [sic]."

"First edition, 4to, pp. [4], 33; original yellow printed wrappers bound in; contemporary olive buckram lettered in gilt on upper cover; extremities browned, mild red ink transfer on the upper wrap, a number of erudite pencil annotations; very good copy. & & Penzer, noting that the yellow wrappers contained a printed half-title, is frequently misinterpreted as suggesting that there is a half-title page. This is not the case. There is no half-title page, only the half-title as printed on the front wrapper. & & The first two issues of this title were published by Bernard Quaritch, the first issue omits the Quaritch name and the date from the title-p. The two issues together did not comprise more than 200 copies, ""and Messrs. Quaritch state that under a hundred were sold."" Penzer, p. 97. Casada 84."
