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.

The title-pages are printed in red and black, and there are fine plates by and after J.C.Müller in Volume I, engraved maps to "Gulliver", and four pages of engraved music at the end of Volume VII. The bindings are almost immaculate. There is no obvious sign that there were ever lettering pieces in the upper compartments, though it's possible that there were.

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.

WAUGH, EVELYN, .
Labels.
0. 1930. A Mediterranenan Journal. London, Duckworth, 1930; 206 pp, [ + 1blank leaf ], with frontispiece from a drawing by the author, double-page route map, sketch map on one page of text, and three plates; publisher's blue cloth, illustrated dust-wrapper designed by Henry Lamb; ligh fading along top and bottom edges of boards and spine, a few tiny spots om rear endpapers; dust-wrapper price-clipped, a little darkened, minimally spotted, and a little rubbed at extremities, and chipped with loss at head of its spine, the loss extending to a maximum of about one inch from the top down one side of the spine and otherwise much smaller, losing half the letter "h" at the end of "Waugh";. A very good copy of the first impression of the first edition of a book extremely hard to find in fine condition or with a good dust-wrapper. The fading at the top of the spine corresponds to the obviously old chip in the dust-wrapper, which has since been protected with (unattached) transparent film and an (unattached) backing of old nearly-matching cream-coloured paper. Neither the film nor the backing paper are in any way attached to the wrapper or the book. A very desirable copy.
