TREVELYAN, HERBERT,,
Snatches from Oblivion. ,
0. 1827. Being the Remains of the Late Herbert Trevelyan Esq. edited by Piers Shafton Gent. London, Hurst, Chance & Co. 1827. xviii, 256pp. with engraved title-page and six plates; contemporary chocolate-coloured diced calf, spine richly gilt, gilt border to boards ("Wilson. 88 Royal Exchange"); the etched plates spotted and embrowned, one gathering (F5/pp. 105-108) detached but present; The "Introductory Sketch" has been misbound before the "Advertisement" and "List of Contents". A very rare collection of poems, stories, and sketches. We assume Plate I is the engraved title-page; Plate V is bound at the beginning as frontispiece. In checking the dates of the the artist, Robert Seymour, (1798-1836 ) we found that this work is attributed in Thieme/Becker's Lexicon of Artists to "Beck"; certainly the author's and ediitor's names appear to be a smokescreen. The binder's ticket on the front pastedown read "Wilson. 88 Royal Exchange. London. Books Maps &c. for exportation". Ramsden, "London Bookbinders" (1956) lists this [John] Wilson at page 151, taking Willson's second business address, from London Directories. In several ways a very rare book.

WILKES, WETENHALL,
A Letter of Genteel and Moral Advice
0. 1766. to a Young Lady: being a System of RULES and INFORMATIONS; digested into a new and familiar Method to qualify the FAIR SEX to be useful, and happy in every Scene of Life. The EIGHTH EDITION, carefully Revised, Corrected, and Enlarged by the AUTHOR. London, Printed for L.Hawes, C.Clarke, and R.Collins in Pater-Noster Row, 1766; [viii], 223pp. with engraved frontisp. (by Isaac Taylor); contemp. calf, raised bands with simple gilt rule and black leather lettering-piece, simple gilt rule to boards; top strip cut from half-title, about 40 pages lightly stained in the middle from flowers being pressed there - not preventing legibility, small hole in p.45/46 with loss of two letters. Scarce. The choice of this small book to press flowers in suggests it may have been the only book permitted in a young owner's pocket or bag on some afternoon's excursion centuries ago - or else that the content of the book was felt by her to be far heavier than its physical weight. Judging from its several editions Wilkes' views on female education and the role of women were widely circulated, but copies of his book are rare.

ZINZENDORFF, GRAF LUDWIG VON
Inhalt
0. 1743. [.. Reden ..][ Flensburg & Altona, c.1743 ?]; [x], 235pp.; WITH: Des Grafen von Zinzendorff Inhalt derjenigen Reden, welche zu Berlin vom 1ten Januar. 1738 bis 27ten Aprilis in denen Abend-Stunden sonderlich fuer die Mannspersonen gehalten worden. 3. Aufl. Flensburg & Altona, 1743; [viii], 342pp.; two volumes bound in one, early 19th. century marbled boards, black paper label with gilt lettering; worn, spine neatly repared at front hinge, vertical crease along centre of spine, edges worn, light brown stain running up to half the length of some outer margins, mostly in the first work, early ink entries, apparently prayers, on verso of final blank. The first work, dedicated to 'Ihro Majestaet, die Koenigin von Preussen' , lacks its title-page. After the Dedication, ending 'Ludwig von Z|inzendorff', and Foreword, dated 7th June 1738, from Marienborn, the contents begin under the general heading: 'Inhalt der Zwoelf Reden ueber das Gebet des Herrn'. These twelve sermons are followed on page147 by 'Der Inhalt noch zehen anderer Reden'. Thus the two volumes, together covering Zinzendorff's speeches in Berlin in early 1738, would appear to belong together and to have been issued together. This would make the first work also a third, or later, edition.
