SHAKESPEARE, WILLIAM,
The Plays
Pickering. 1825. in Nine Volumes. EIGHT volumes only [of nine], London, William Pickering, Chancery Lane, 1825; approx. 3.1 ins x 1.7 ins; each volume c. 300 pp. with 33 copper-engraved plates, and a few wood-engraved circular vignettes; contemporary maroon morocco, spines panelled in gilt with raised bands, lettered in gilt with the titles of the plays within one of the panels. triple gilt rule to boards, all edges gilt; several plates slightly or marginally embrowned, a few more than the others, text clean; Volume I lacks general title (discarded by the binder); Volume III lacks the final leaf (the last two pages of "A Winter's Tale"), title-page of Vol.IX long ago mended with neat stitching; bindings a little rubbed at extremities, a little darkened, bottom corner of rear board of Volume III scratched; generally very attractive in its miniature morocco binding, though a little used, and internally clean, but missing Volume II as well as the one leaf of Volume III. Spielman 456. "The illustrated edition of the Pickering Shakespeare is rare in itself as only a small number of the sets was issued with the engraved frontispieces". He quotes Sheringham, writing in "The Connoisseur" [Nov. 1902]: "The plates of the Shakespeare in particular, 38 in number, were all lost, and the later copies of course are without them." The plates were engraved after Thomas Stothard - except for that of Puck, which is after Sir Joshua Reynolds' already celebrated painting and a few others. Since there are usually four plates in each of our volumes, we guess that our Volume IX, with only three plates, may be short of one plate.

STAEL-HOLSTEIN, A.L.G.NECKER, MME DE
Corinna
0. 1810. ossia L'Italia. Six volumes bound in three, Napoli, Angelo Trani, 1810; 6mo (c. 9 x 14 cm.); cont. half calf, spines gilt-ruled with ornament in blind, double red morocco labels; rubbed and worn, some headbands or tailbands a little chipped. An attractive set, each volume with the book-binder's ticket of Thomas Rigden of Dover [Ramsden, p. 140 (also half calf, gilt)], and the slightly later ownership entry on the title-pages "Frampton, Malta, 1828". 1810 was the notorious year in the author's life when her newly completed "De l'Allemagne", though passed by the Paris censor, was nevertheless seized and suppressed. This may possibly have have been the occasion for the Naples publisher to issue the romance "Corinne", which was first published in Italian in Firenze, in 1808.

SWIFT, JONATHAN, AND OTHERS,
The Examiners
Morphew. for the Year 1711. To which is prefix'd A Letter to the Examiner. London .. for John Morphew .. and A.Dodd.. 1712; xvi, 306pp. [12 pp.] index, [2 pp.] adverts; 12mo; contemporary panelled calf, spine gilt in compartments with raised bands, red leather lettering-piece; binding used and worn, front hinge split but firmly held on the strings, splits in rear hinge, trace of older tape along inner margin of front paste-down, early name - "Edwart Jones, Bafonwen" at top of rear free endpaper. "The Examiner" included contributions by Swift, who took over the editorship. According to Hawkesworth, in Volume VII of his 1760 edition of Swift's Works, Swift's own contributions were Nos 13 - 44. This volume reprinted the periodical in a handy form for contemporary readers, and provides the modern reader with part of the context of Swift's papers. As the printer writes: "It is conceived, That altho' these Papers were writ for the Public Service, upon Incidents, as they daily happened; yet in them are treated several Subjects, which may be of general and lasting Use. Neither perhaps will Posterity be unwilling to see several Observations made, and Facts related, concerning the late Disposition of Affairs, which they will probably meet nowhere else ..".

TAYLOR, TOM, (ED.),
Life of Benjamin Robert Haydon,
. 1853. Historical Painter, from his Autobiography and Journals. Second Edition. Three volumes, London, 1853; xvi, 419, viii, 407, viii, 419 pp. AN EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED COPY with scores of plates from Victorian and earlier sources, mostly portraits; bound by Riviere & Son in early 20th century brown half morocco over cloth boards, spines gilt in compartments with raised bands,exremities a little rubbed; plates to Volumes I and II damp-stained, mostly in the margins (see below), a few light marginal pencil marks. Today Haydon is better remembered for his remarkable diary and tragic end than for the historical painting he tried desperately to promulgate. His writings are replete with anecdotes, of contemporaries, artistic and others, records of encounters and friendships, and trenchant, if controversial, criticisms and judgements (a large number of the people referred to or portrayed are illustrated through the plates that have been added by the binder). Many of the plates added to the first two volumes damp-stained but mostly in the margins: many of the plates were window-mounted, and it is then ususally only the mounts that display marks; the text in these volumes is not stained, though it is very slightly rippled at the outer edge. Volume III is unaffected by stains. The plates comprising the extra illustrations are the usual mixture for the time of binding of mostly steel-engraved, or copper-engraved, portraits and views, usually relating to the text opposite which they are bound in, some common, some scarce. They would be hard to assemble nowadays.
