James Caulfield
Memoirs of the Celebrated Persons Composing the Kit-Cat Club 1st Ed 1821 hardcov
London: printed for Hurst, Robinson, and Company, 1821. This large ( 13" x 9") book is clean, tight and square. It has a pencil name on a blank, front end paper; otherwise it is unmarked. It has been professionally repaired at the hinges with a new, heavy brown free end paper being inserted, recreating the hinge, but ending at the marbled paste downs, making the book extremely solid. The original three-quarter binding is very good. the brown leather on the spine is chipped at the ends (although the underlying cloth is still in place), there is a small chip just below the gold titles on the spine and the brown leather on the corners is a bit chipped such that they are somewhat rounded. The boards are marbled and rubbed, surface and edges. Internally, it is in just wonderful condition, the 48 black & white portraits are all marvelously bright and clean as is all the text. No author is stated (Google books and WorldCat attribute it to Caulfield. It has 261 pages with minimal mild foxing and marbled edges and an errata sheet at the rear. [Attributes: First Edition]
Bookseller: mdpincbooks [Quincy, Massachusetts, US]
