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.
