ANON.,
Young Englands Little Library.
0. 1844. A Collection of Original Tales for Children, in Prose and Verse. By Eminent Authors. London, Wm. S. Orr & Co. Paternoster Row, 1844; small 4to; twentieth century binder's cloth, with gilt title "Little Library"; ink smudge to extreme outer edge of c. 30 pages, three or four very short marginal tears. The volume consists of eleven parts, which were also available to buy separately, of 24 to 32 pages, with numerous lithographic plates, most of which are lightly spotted. After the title-page, printed in red and black, and the frontispiece full-length portrait of "the Editor", there is an introduction and a contents leaf, which has been annotated in light pencil giving references in the Osborne Collection catalogue for such individual works present here as are listed there. The contents are: Adam the Gardener [abridged from Charles Cowden Clarke]; The Princess Narina [also atributed to Clarke]; Number One [Mrs S.C.Hall]; Perseverance [Clarke]; The Curate's Favourite Scholar [Mary Howitt]; The Remarkable Nigger and three more verse tales [F.W.N.Bailey]; Little Chatterbox [Mrs S.C.Hall]; Picture of the Virgin [Mary Howitt]; Savoyard Boy and his Sister [J.D.Haas, after Hermann Kletke]; Adventures of Jack Holyday [Albert Smith]; Glory [Thomas Gaspey]. The majority of the plates seem to be by John Absalon. The pagination at the end of three of the stories is erratic, or rather erroneous, but the texts are complete. Two of the verse-tales by F.W.N.Bailey are so overtly racist that it's hard to imagine how they would have appealed to the same readership as Clarke or Howitt, but this is perhaps a lesson this compilation inadvertently teaches.

AXFORDS
Victoria's Dream
0. 60pp brochure in A4, illustrated thoughout with half-page black & white photographs, the outer pages serving as wrappers. with price-list loosely inserted; outer wrappers a little creased or used, otherwise good. An undated lingerie catalogue issued by Axfords, of 306 Vauxhall Bridge Road, S.W,1, apparently in the 1980s or 1990s: "Our specialities are corsets of the lace up Victorian and Edwardian styles. We also have a large range of Basques, waspies, and corselettes. The selection of uniforms, undies, negligees and nighties, skirts, blouses and dresses is probably unequalled. We are able to offer this unique and world famous selection only because we have our own factory.".

CRUIKSHANK , GEORGE (ILLUSTRATOR)
The Comic Almanac.
0. An Ephemeris in Jest and Earnest. A COMPLETE SET, comprising 19 volumes, all first editions, and in the ORIGINAL WRAPPERS or original flexible cloth, London, Tilt & Bogue [later David Bogue], 1835 - 1853. Over the 19 years of its publication, the Comic Almanac, enjoyed various editors, including the pseudonymous "Rigdum Funnidos", Henry Mayhew, and Robert B. Brough, and experienced a reduction in format from octavo to duodecimo in the years 1848 and 1849. The stiff paper wrappers with designs by Cruikshank finally gave way in 1850 to stiff gilt-decorated cloth-covered wrappers. What never changed was the inclusion of twelve etched plates by George Cruikshank in each issue, as well as black-and-white illustrations in the text by various hands. Larger folding frontispieces, also by Cruikshank, etched and finely coloured by hand, were added from the year 1850. The etchings for "The Comic Almanac" reflect his close observation of Victorian society and those for the earlier issues are considered some of his best work. The spines of the first seven volumes are worn, with a little loss, particularly at head and foot, though the lettering is largely present; the rear wrapper of the 1840 volume is loose; the next six volumes have been very neatly, professionally rebacked using old material, either paper or fine-grained cloth, and match the plain spines of the last volumes' original cloth. There are two or three contemporary ownership entries, and a few pencil entries for 1843. The contents are in good condition, though there is slight spotting and browning to the edges of the plates from 1843 to 1847. It is very rarely that a complete series in the original ephemeral bindings is offered.

CUNDALL, JOSEPH (EDITOR),
The Illustrated Poetical Gift Book
0. [The Book of Favouriite modern Ballads]. Illustrated with Engravings from Drawings by J.C.Horsley, A.B.A. Edward Duncan, G.H.Thomas, Edwin H.Corbould, Birket Foster, C.W.Cope R.A. Harrison Weir, Etc. Printed in colours by Edmund Evans. London. Ward, Lock, and Tyler n.d. [c. 1865]; [vi], 84 pp. with frontispiece and 24 colour-printed vignettes, all large or nearly full-page; publisher's decorated boards, embossed in gilt and blind; boards very dull, corners rubbed, inner hinge split but binding firm, margins a little finger-marked and slightly spotted here and there but nowhere seriously; the blue cobbled cloth, which matches the cloth of the boards perfectly though it is partly faded, is split horizontally and has been refixed to the book block: it is unlettered snd undecorated and may not be the original spine except that its colour and material suggest it is. Joseph Cundall's "A Book of Favourite Modern Ballads", with black-and-white vignettes by many of the leading landscape and genre painters of Victorian England, was published in 1860. A new edition, with the illustrations printed in colour, by a leading craftesman,in the field, appeared c. 1865. The present volume consists of the sheets of half of the work in its latter version. [Another book - "Choice Pictures and Choice Poems" - contained the other half.] The text is printed in ochre within a decorative ochre framework, with ornamental designs, also in ochre, by Albert H. Warren. There is a guard of plain paper between each printed page. Perhaps to be singled out particularly are the two marine pictures after Edward Duncan, or the four illustrations after Birkett Foster, but the prize might go to Samuel Palmer's illustrations to Longfellow's "I remember, I remember" and to Beattie's "The Hermit". [cf. Ruari McClean, Joseph Cundall. A Victorian Publisher, p.85.].

DALZIELL [ED.],
A Round of Days
0. 1866. Described in Original Poems by some of Our Most Celebrated Poets and in Pictures by Eminent Artists engraved by the Brothers Dalziell. London, George Routledge and Sons, 1866; 4to; [xii], 93 numbered leaves, printed on rectos only, with wood-engraved illustrations on nearly every leaf, [ii]pp.; publisher's richly-decorated cloth, spine gilt to an Arabesque design, boards richly gilt with red and blue paper onlays, a.e.g.; skillfully sewn and recased, with new endpapers, short split at head of spine, corners worn with splits, light, mainly marginal foxing (heavier to prelims and title-page), spots to a few pages affecting the image, marginal finger-mark on page 60, early inscription on original yellow front endpaper. Scarce, and would be virtually unobtainable unfoxed and tight in its original binding as issued. Nevertheless a classic, and a high-point in Victorian book illustration and book production. The volume is highly regarded both for its illustrations and for its John Leighton binding, while the authors include William Allingham, Christina Rossetti, George Macdonald, Jean Ingelow, Lady Caroline Norton, Mrs Craik, and the Howitts. "One of the finest of the illustrated gift books" (Gleeson White, p.125]. Ray 153.

GUIZOT, F.P.G.,
Discours Academiques
0. suivis des discours prononcťs pour la distribution des prix au concours generale de l'Universitť et devant diverses sociťtťs rťligieuses, et de trois essais de philosophie littťraire et politique. Paris, Didier, 1861; iv, 424 pp.; contemporary morocco-backed marbled boards, spine lettered in gilt with raised bands; corners a little worn, short, barely visible split to front joint, edges minimally rubbed, slight foxing, mostly confined to first few pages and last gatherings. Signed presentation copy of the first edition of this collection of papers, some of which date back as far as the eighteen-twenties. The three essays which follow the addresses are on "Encyclopťdie" - 58 pages including a well-researched historical bibliography of encyclopedias published in Europe - "Abrťgť", and "…lections" (on political elections, c. 40 pp.). This copy was inscribed, signed and given as a birthday present to the English woman of letters Charlotte Mary Yonge. author of family and historical novels and of children's books, popular educator, and devout Anglican. It's possible that the blue silk bookmark, now at page 223, the beginning of an address to the "Sociťtť Biblique Protestante" on 30th April 1851, was left there by her or by the author. Several further addresses concern religious instruction or education. A very attractive association copy, which documents an Anglo-French friendship, and is itself a document of French history as well as of Victorian history.

"by John Keble. The first edition"; front hinge rubbed and split, but firm. Not,in our opinion, the first edition, despite Warden Sparrow's note, as there was an edition in the same year, 1846, in the same format as the first edition of "The Christian Year"; but the larger and smaller format editions may possibly have been issued simultaneously. Both were printed by Henry Mozley and Sons, Derby.
