 ANON [ATTRIBUTED TO SIR GEORGE NAYLER], A COLLECTION OF COATS OF ARMS Borne by the Nobility and Gentry of the County of Glocester
ANON [ATTRIBUTED TO SIR GEORGE NAYLER]
A COLLECTION OF COATS OF ARMS Borne by the Nobility and Gentry of the County of Glocester
London, J. Good, 159 New Bond Street 1792 Copperplates (62) + Titlepage vignette (with coat of arms of Gloucester and its cathedral in background) in total 370 coats of arms engraved by Ames of Bristol. . Small folio linen spine with contemporary blue paper wraps. Engraved titlepage + 62 plates of coats of arms. Titlepage partly torn across and repaired on back and hinge strengthened, else a neat copy with only a little light freckling. There is no text or subscribers list in this version (the book was sold both with and without 49 pages of text which listed and briefly described the coats of arms pictured in the plates). The arms of Gloucestershire families are derived from Sir Robert Atkins' History (1712) and a few from Rudder's New History (1779). Printed 6 per page, they are alphabetical first from Atkyns up to plate 53 which has only 4 arms ending in "Yate". Then the alphabet begins again with A from Rudder but ends with "Cassey". A further volume was intended but the work was never completed. *Generally attributed to Sir George Nayler (born at Stroud), Garter King of Arms, but the Dict. Nat. Biog. xl.130 states that "it was in reality the work of one Ames, an engraver at Bristol".

ANON [TEXT], ENGRAVINGS AFTER FRANZ STÖBER [NOT NAMED HERE]
DER MYTHOS ALTER DICHTER in sechzig bildlichen Darstellungen. Dritte umgeararbeitete Auflage.
Wien (Vienna), Mayer & Compagnie 3rd revised edition. 1841 Frontisplate + 59 other steel-engraved plates (lacking pl.50 Sisyphus) originally engraved on copper in 1815 by Franz Stöber (1795-1858). . Large octavo (24cm x 15.5cm) newer linen-spined boards with old paper relaid on covers and spine (has title but lacks original paper at spine head and foot). Unpaginated, but each numbered plate has tissue guard and facing leaf of text in German to explain each myth. Lacks plate 50 (maybe cut out by censor). Some foxing, and light marginal damp marks at gutter not touching engraved part of plates. *The steel-engraved images of gods, nymphs and heroes are quite small (9.5cm x 6.5cm), printed on strong paper at centre of each plate, but of very fine quality and detail. They are closely based on similarly numbered copperplate engravings by Franz Xaver Stöber, first published Vienna 1815 in similar large octavo format, but with completely different anonymous German text. The detail of these later steel engravings only differs from Stöber's original 1815 copperplates by covering up some female breasts, better to comply with 1840s more prudish moral code. They still retain the strongly erotic impression given by many of the originals, thus helping to maintain their popularity over more than 25 years.

He dates the Preface Nonis Februariis, anno primo seculi Millesimi sexcentesimi [1600] and cites six previous Concordances 1555-1584 on which this work is based. The printers Johann Aubry (d.1601) & Claude de Marne (d.1610) were sons-in-law of Andreas Wechel and his heirs in the business. Another copy of this book was owned by Francis Bacon (1561-1626) who recorded the price he paid, 13s 4d (Book Auction Records 1909).
