London: a descriptive poem
Printed for William Darton, London 1812 - 28pp, [4]. With eight copper-plates (dated 1813), and two terminal advertisement leaves. Stitched in original publisher's buff paper wrappers, lettered in black. Extremities dust-soiled and a trifle rubbed, some loss to spine. Substantial loss to foot of title, touching imprint with loss of price, occasional marginal chipping and small ink spots to text, tear to one plate, partial naive colouring of four plates. A charming and amusing poem, first printed in 1811, celebrating the vibrancy and variation of England's capital, accompanied by several attractive views of the city's landmarks including Westminster Abbey, Primrose Hill, the Tower, and St. Paul's Cathedral. COPAC records copies of this second edition at only three locations (BL, Bishopsgate, Guildhall), and only five locations for the first. Darton H987 (2). Size: 12mo [Attributes: Soft Cover]
