WILKES, WETENHALL,
A Letter of Genteel and Moral Advice
. 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.

WILSON. T (SAMUEL CLARK),
The Little Marine Botanist;
0. or, Guide to the Collecting and Arranging of Sea-Weed. WITH:The Little Conchologist; an Introduction to the Classification of Shells. WITH: The Little Geologist or First Book of Geology. AND: The Little Mineralogist or First Book of Mineralogy. FOUR Volumes bound in one; approx. 9 cm x 6.5 cm.; 74, [vi], 70, 70, 72 pp. with 16 plates, (7 coloured or partly coloured, by hand); .contemporary half purple calf, red leather settering-piece; rebacked at an early stage, old spine and old lettering-piece mounted, spine dull, corners worn and scuffed; the binder has discarded the half-title to the second work. The author, Samuel Clarke (1810-1875), wrote a number of educational books for children, including also "The Little Entomologist", often using the pseudonym "the Rev. T. Wilson" and also as "Reuben Ramble" and as one of the many "Peter Parleys". These four works are all rare, although "The Little Conchologist" is listed at p.198 of the first volume of the Osborne Collection catalogue, and dated [1837]. The little boks we are offering here must have been a great encouragement to take up natural history, with their small, squarish format and the really charming plates, with several illustrations on each and some very delicate, and accurate hand-colouring. "The Little Marine Botanist" is printed on pink paper. The first and last of the works here bear the name Mary Alice Vallance on the title-page, the last giving her home as Brighton, and the first also bearing the name Mr G.A.Vallance. Despite the small format, one plate (uncolouredshows a pterodactyl, a palaeotherium, an iguanodon and other earlier forms of life. while others show fossils, sea-weed, rocks and shells, and one is a hand-coloured geological map of England and Wales.
