BOOTHBY, SIR BROOKE, BART.
FABLES AND SATIRES, with A Preface on the Esopean Fable [Two volumes -complete - bound together - author's signature laid-in]
Edinburgh, Archibald Constable and Co. 1809, 1st edition, hb. 12mo, pp. 192, 241.
¶ A quite rare item. WorldCat recording only two institutional holdings. Our copy bears Boothby's signature, laid down on to page lv. At the top of the Preface page is written: "E Libris Johannis Sleigh / Leek / 1811", and on the half-title page for the second volume is written: "John Sleigh / Thornbridge, Derbyshire / 12 Nov. 1858"; one or both sigmnatures possibly being those of John Sleigh, the author of "A History of the Ancient Parish of Leek in Staffordshire." Armorial bookplate inside front board with motto "Medio Tutissimus" ("you will go most safely by the middle course"). This is a re-binding copy, only. All pages present, and it could be re-bound as two volumes, as there is a separate title page for the second volume. However, the present binding is shot. There is old, pervasive, tide mark extending from the top to below mid-point of each page, the extent declining progressively towards the end of the book. Priced with all faults in mind.

LEAN, VINCENT STUCKEY
LEAN'S COLLECTANEA
Bristol, UK, J. W. Arrowsmith 1902 to 1904, 1st edition, hb. Ill.: engraved frontispieces. 8vo,
¶ The collections of Vincent Stuckey Lean of "proverbs (English & foreign), folk lore, and superstitions, also compilations towards dictionaries of proverbial phrases and words, old and unused." "An immense collection of proverbs, folklore, aphorisms, local sayings, English and foreign, Cockney and provincial, traced as far as possible to their sources, and provided with most elaborate references.." Bound in vellum-like half cloth over red cloth boards with gilt spine lettering. Note: this is a made-up set, as it originally lacked volume II, part II, when the other four volumes came into our possession. We located a copy of the missing volume, which is the same edition and binding, but regretably not in the same condition; being ex-library with considerable wear and soiling to the cloth. Nonetheless, the set is now complete. Other than the aforementioned volume, the remaining volumes show some wear, light soiling, and spotting, but the bindings are tight and the contents clean. Clipping from book auction catalogue for this set tabbed-in to inside rear board of first volume. Originally issued in a set of five volumes in four, and limited to 500 copies.
