JERVIS, JOHN (AN OLD COACHMAN) ; KITCHINER, WILLIAM (REVISED BY AND &C)
The Traveller's Oracle ; or, Maxims for Locomotion : Containing Precepts for Promoting the Pleasures, and Hints for Preserving the Health of Travellers : Part II. Comprising the Horse and Carriage Keeper's Oracle; Rules for Purchasing and Keeping or Jobbing Horses and Carriages; Estimates of Expenses Occasioned Thereby; and an Easy Plan for Ascertaining Every Hackney-Coach Fare - Vol. 2
Henry Colburn, London. 1827, First Edition. Hardcover. 336 pages (complete). A handy, happy copy of this fascinating book. Not only is there much advice about horses and carriages, owning them, maintaining them, using them, there is also etiquette, working practice tips and instruction for the coachman. There is also a most engaging section on an employer's social responsibilities toward the coachman: "Merciful Masters, who use their Carriage in Wet Weather, provide the Coachman Two Box Coats: - a Second-hand Coat may be bought for about 2. 10s. - a slight increase to their Expense, a great addition to his Comfort: for when a Box Coat gets thoroughly Wet, it will take forty-eight hours before it becomes thoroughly Dry; for it must not be dried otherwise than gradually and in the Air. Mr Jarvis says, that "the best way of drying a Box Coat on these occasions, is to put it round a a Truss of Straw.". Whatever Olympic Wits or Whips might think, there are few modern Jockies who will agree with Pindarus, that Water is the best thing, at least for the lining of the Inner or the Outer Coat of the Stomach." The boards are smart. They are a little scuffed here and there but also steady (bound by Columbian Press in Calcutta). The early pages and later pages have aging and storage marks. The contents between are healthy, very assured, clean (for their age), clear, contented. fk. Our orders are shipped using tracked courier delivery services. Good/No Jacket.

NOBLE, MARK
Memoirs of the Protectorate-House of Cromwell; Deduced from an Early Period, and Continued Down to the Present Time: Collected Chiefly from Original Papers and Records: With Proofs and Illustrations; Together with an Appendix: And Embellished with Elegant Engravings - Volume I
Pearson and Rollason, Birmingham for R Baldwin, Pater-Noster-Row; B White, Fleet-Street; J Robson, New-Bond-Street; and S Hayes, Oxford-Road, London. 1784, First Edition. Hardcover. 480 pages plus armorial chart (complete). A pleasing copy of this eager biography of the protectorate Cromwell's. However, the book, written by Rev Noble in his extensive leisure hours, was (according to his obituary in "The Gentleman's Magazine") "So unfortunately numerous were the errors of this compilation, that Mr Gough, whose attentions was soon after directed to the same subject, occupies fourteen quarto pages of Preface to his 'Short Genealogical View of the Family of Oliver Cromwell .) in little more than exposing Mr Noble's errors. The latter, however, was not discouraged from the work to which he was certainly unequal .". This copy then, is the infamous edition! Half leather. Marbled boards. The leathered corners and spine are considerably worn all over and about. The marbled boards too, are worn, scuffed, marked from age, storage and handling. The boards and spine are heroically certain. The contents are most pleasing. The first free page has a previous owner signature. Apart from expected age marks here and there (few in number and shallow in impact), the pages are clean, clear, congenial, neat, agreeably generous, hearteningly hale. fk. Our orders are shipped using tracked courier delivery services. Very Good/No Jacket.
