COTTON, BERNARD D
Scottish Vernacular Furniture
. Part of the appeal of vernacular furniture is that to understand it we must look closely at social history, and engage with lifestyles that range from self-sufficient to sophisticated. To write this book demanded more than scholarship. Bernard Cotton and his wife Gerry made it a priority to discover pieces in their contexts, to meet the people who used them, and to understand how they were made. The story of their quest is itself an adventure. Some of the objects represent the life and death of a community, the vital evidence of a vanished culture. Vernacular furniture proves beyond question that limited resources, even poverty, need not exclude aesthetic qualities, nor need the functional exclude beauty and charm. Furniture of the types examined in this book can be found today as far away as North America, Australia and New Zealand. 2008, new hardback in fine d/j folio 31 x 24 cm. 304pp. 544 Illustrations, 412 in colour.

CRUIKSHANK , GEORGE (ILLUSTRATOR)
The Comic Almanac.
0. An Ephemeris in Jest and Earnest. A COMPLETE SET, comprising 19 volumes, all first editions, and in the ORIGINAL WRAPPERS or original flexible cloth, London, Tilt & Bogue [later David Bogue], 1835 - 1853. Over the 19 years of its publication, the Comic Almanac, enjoyed various editors, including the pseudonymous "Rigdum Funnidos", Henry Mayhew, and Robert B. Brough, and experienced a reduction in format from octavo to duodecimo in the years 1848 and 1849. The stiff paper wrappers with designs by Cruikshank finally gave way in 1850 to stiff gilt-decorated cloth-covered wrappers. What never changed was the inclusion of twelve etched plates by George Cruikshank in each issue, as well as black-and-white illustrations in the text by various hands. Larger folding frontispieces, also by Cruikshank, etched and finely coloured by hand, were added from the year 1850. The etchings for "The Comic Almanac" reflect his close observation of Victorian society and those for the earlier issues are considered some of his best work. The spines of the first seven volumes are worn, with a little loss, particularly at head and foot, though the lettering is largely present; the rear wrapper of the 1840 volume is loose; the next six volumes have been very neatly, professionally rebacked using old material, either paper or fine-grained cloth, and match the plain spines of the last volumes' original cloth. There are two or three contemporary ownership entries, and a few pencil entries for 1843. The contents are in good condition, though there is slight spotting and browning to the edges of the plates from 1843 to 1847. It is very rarely that a complete series in the original ephemeral bindings is offered.

CUSS , TERENCE CAMERER
The English Watch 1585-1970 a Unique Alliance of Art, Design and Inventive Genius
. size: 300 mm x 237 mm. 504pp. 830 coloured illustrations. Splendid hardback in pristine jacket This is the first book to cover all aspects of English watches from every period. Watches represent a fascinating combination of applied art and science and an outstanding contribution to their history and development was made in England. By dividing the watches into six periods, each with its own introduction, the author has been able to provide an admirably clear and comprehensive survey, to describe the pioneering inventions as they were made and to illustrate the distinctive character of the English watch as it evolved. An outline of each period is followed by information on the trade in London and the provinces, watchmakers, case makers, case styles and decoration, dials, hands, characteristics of the mechanisms and timekeeping capabilities. Over 290 watches illustrating these points have been carefully selected from both private and public collections and details have been enlarged to clarify important features. Many of these watches have never been illustrated before. There is an extensive glossary which includes further technical information and, as well as a detailed general index, there are separate indexes of makers and case makers. The author, a dealer for more than forty years, has a lasting enthusiasm for his subject. He is familiar with its many facets and used to providing answers on a wide range of specific questions. This book is intended not only to be a useful guide to those new to the subject but also a valuable point of reference for those already familiar with it. this publication is a major contribution to the genre and will be a standard reference for many years to come.[ British Museum magazine, 2009.] Terence Camerer Cuss, the sixth generation of the family firm Camerer Cuss & Co founded in London in 1788, has been involved in the world of antique watches and clocks all his life. He has been a liveryman of the Clockmakers' Company since 1969. The Antique Collectors' Club first published The Camerer Cuss Book of Antique Watches, a revised and enlarged edition of his father's Country Life Book of Watches, in 1976 and they have reprinted it several times. He moved the business premises from New Oxford Street to St. James's in 1983 where he continued dealing for the next twenty years. He wrote the limited edition catalogue of Lord Sandberg's important collection The Sandberg Watch Collection published by Antiquorum, Geneva in 1998. He has contributed a number of articles to magazines and periodicals, and continues to enjoy his subject, the research and occasional discovery!. (ISBN: 9781851495887) .

ESTOW C
Pedro the Cruel of Castille 1350 - 1369
. ( The Medieval Mediterranean, 6 ) 1995, xxxvii,288pp, Hardback, mint condition in shrink wraps. This work deals with the reign of Pedro I of Castile (1350-1369), known as ?The Cruel,? one of the most notorious and misunderstood figures in the annals of peninsular history. This is the first book on the subject that analyzes Pedro's rule in light of social, political, diplomatic, and economic conditions in mid-14th century Castile. Using extant primary documentation from archival sources and the most recent findings of scholars from various fields, the book explores in detail the historical basis for Pedro's reputation and the extent to which this reputation unfairly rests on the testimony of Pero Lůpez de Ayala, the reign's principal chronicler. The book provides fresh insights into various aspects of Pedro's career, such as his political aims, relations with religious minorities, and fiscal policies. (ISBN: 9789004100947) .

0. suivis des discours prononcťs pour la distribution des prix au concours generale de l'Universitť et devant diverses sociťtťs rťligieuses, et de trois essais de philosophie littťraire 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 "Encyclopťdie" - 58 pages including a well-researched historical bibliography of encyclopedias published in Europe - "Abrťgť", and "…lections" (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 "Sociťtť 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.

He is famous for his work on a number of scientific expeditions to Canary Islands (1866-67), Red Sea (1873), Ceylon (1881-82), Java (1900-01), among others.

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.
