GUIZOT, F.P.G.,
Discours Academiques
. suivis des discours prononcés pour la distribution des prix au concours generale de l'Université et devant diverses sociétés réligieuses, et de trois essais de philosophie littéraire 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 "Encyclopédie" - 58 pages including a well-researched historical bibliography of encyclopedias published in Europe - "Abrégé", and "Élections" (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 "Société 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.

Paintings and Drawings By Harold Gilman
Privately Published. 1965. and Charles Ginner in the Collection of Edward Le Bas. Privately printed, London, 1965.

Both text and reproductions were printed by Fairfax Hall at his own press, on specially-made papers by Alex Cowan And Sons and by W.S.Hodgkinson and Co.; the types were cast by Fairfax Hall from matrices designed by Eric Gill; the bindings are by W.T.Morrell and Co. The whole edition was limited to 105 sets. This is number 44. The spine of the portfolio is lightly stained, the boards lightly spotted, with a pale water-stain on the front board that also reaches part of the morocco on the front. A very good copy. [postage or carriage on this rather large portfolio would exceed postage rates for standard books, please inquire first ] ( private press ).

HAWKER, ROBERT,
Zion's Pilgrim
. 1801. Falmouth, printed by T.Findell [& sold London, Plymouth, Exeter, Truro, Helston, Penzance etc.]; 1801; [iv], 170pp. with wood-engraved title-vignette, and wood-engraved tail-piece [initialled R[obert] A[ustin]; original sheep; corners rubbed, spine very rubbed, with loss, small patch of leather missing from front board, larger patch missing from rear board, contents minimally spotted, short closed tear at p. 87/8. First edition, with the book-plate of John Davies Enys [possibly a relation of Davies Gilbert, the Cornish Antiquary]. The author, a very popular preacher, was the grandfather of R.S.Hawker, Vicar of Morwenstow. The work describes in a fictional first-person narrative how a man is brought to Christian belief and values through a series of encounters - the Moral Preacher, the Poor Man's Experience, the Suicide, the Ploughman, the Stable Boy, an Inn, etc. including the Jew, with a narrative of how he was converted to the Christian faith. In 1820 the artist William Blake engraved a portrait of "Revd. Robert Hawker", after Ponsford; a very reduced photocopy.of this print is loosely inserted before the half-title of our copy.

HAZLITT, WILLIAM,
The Life of Napoleon Buonaparte.
0. 1834. London: Printed for Hunt and Clarke, York Street, Covent Garden. 1834; 535, 572, [iv] pp.; half buckram over blue paper-covered boards in style of the original binding (which was brown pebble-grain cloth over blue paper-covered boards), original spine with printed paper label mounted. An excessively rare and apparently unrecorded re-issue or re-printing of Volumes I and II of Hazlitt's "Life of Napoleon" by its original publisher. The title-page, at least, was newly-printed, and like the original printed label on the spine [preserved in this copy] implies the contents comprise a complete text of the biography: there is no mention of "Vol.I" on the title-page, no separately-printed title-page for Volume II, and no suggestion the work might comprise further volumes; the signatures to the separate gatherings, however, mostly bear the indication "Vol. I" or "Vol. II". These first two volumes of the work were first published in 1828, by Hunt and Clarke; but the firm went bankrupt, and Hazlitt himself lost two hundred pounds over its publication. New publishers, Effingham Wilson with Chapman & Hall, published Volumes III and IV in 1830, re-issuing Volumes I & II with new title-pages, giving their own imprint. The copy offered here, however, was apparently marketed four years subsequently by the original publisher and from the old address. The last four pages consist of Hunt and Clarke's advertisements, beginning with Hazlitt's "Notes of a Journey Through France and Italy" and ending with Hone's edition of Strutt's "Sports and Pastimes" ["on the 1st of February .. to prevent disappointment, orders for the large paper edition are particularly requested as early as possible."] Hone's "Sports and Pastimes" came out in 1830, so it seems safe to assume that these four pages of advertisements also date back to the year of the bankruptcy. It remains a mystery for whose benefit this volume was published, with its deceptive title-page suggesting it was the complete work, in one volume; and why it should be so rare.
