[1736-1829: Two Sammelbands with Twenty-Three Pamphlets of Famous Dwarfs, Pro-Tory, Anti-Jacobin, Anti-Thomas Paine Sentiment, etc.]
[London and elsewhere: Various imprints], 1736-1745, 1793-1829. Two Sammelband Volumes. 19th-century plum cloth; gilt spine titling. Approx. 8½ x 6½ inches, some pamphlets smaller. 23 Pamphlets. Several illustration plates, including some in color + scattered text illustrations. Bookplate and sporadic ownership inscriptions of William Orde-Powlett, "Lord Bolton," 2nd Baron Bolton (1782-1850). Spines faded, but with bright gilt; some pamphlets trimmed with minor loses; overall, very good. Between these two volumes are twenty-three titles, either unrecorded or (if in American institutions) thinly-held. One title worth mentioning, an anomaly of the group, is a rare pamphlet concerning the famous musicians and dwarfs Nanette Stocker, and of John Hauptmann who exhibited themselves for their diminutive size and became as famous in England as Tom Thumb would later become in America.
