 ANDREWS, William (1848-1908), Famous Frosts and Frost Fairs in Great Britain. Chronicled from the Earliest to the Present Time
ANDREWS, William (1848-1908)
Famous Frosts and Frost Fairs in Great Britain. Chronicled from the Earliest to the Present Time
London, George Redway, 1887. Limited Edition. Original Cloth. No. 376 of 400 copies printed. Thin, square 8vo: viii,91,[1]pp, with frontispiece ("Frost fair on the River Thames, in 1814") and two full-page engravings ("Frost Fair on the Thames in the reign of Charles II" and "Frost Fair on the Thames"). Publisher's finely woven black cloth, beveled boards, spine and upper cover ruled and lettered in gilt, back cover ruled in blind, top edge gilded, coated and mottled end papers, title page in red and black. Fine copy of this scarce work on the winter festivals of the Little Ice Age. Between 1400 and 1835, the Thames froze over 24 times, and merchants and manufacturers moved their various industries onto the ice (frost fairs were even far more common on the Continent, especially in the Netherlands). During the Great Frost of 1683-84, the worst recorded in England, the Thames was frozen over for two months, with the ice reaching a thickness of 11 inches in London. The final frost, in 1814, when an elephant was led across the river below Blackfriars Bridge, began on February 1 and lasted just four days. N. B.

ANDRIESSEN, P. J. (Pieter Jacob, 1815-1877)
[Movable Book] [Novelty Book] [Paper Engineering] Wat Er Alzoo in de Wereld Te Zien Is. Een Aardig Boek Voor Kinderen, Met Bijschriften
Amsterdam, G. Theod. Bom, 1874. Pictorial Wrappers. Crown 8vo (180 x 128mm): [8]pp, with six color lithographs (printed by Emrik & Binger, Haarlem), each with flaps that, when flipped, reveal a completely different image (a ship at sea becomes Bedouins in the desert, a volcano erupts into walruses in the Arctic, Native Americans transform into explorers in the Rockies), taking the viewer on a tour around the world. Each illustration actually consists of two illustrations made from strips of paper which slide across each other. The reader pulls a card tab, and the scene slides to one side to reveal a different scene. The accompanying text guides the reader through these twists and turns. Original burnt orange illustrated card wrappers printed in green, gold, and terracotta and lettered in black. A superbly preserved example of this fragile production, all but pristine, rare, with Worldcat Discovery listing only one copy and LHD none. For more than 700 years book designers have been pushing back the boundaries of the two-dimensional page, adding flaps and rotating parts to enhance the text, most often in scientific literature. But only in the nineteenth century did movable flaps became a regular feature in children's books. In the Netherlands, ‘De nieuwe rijschool' [The new riding school], published in 1856, was the first movable children's book, which reached their peak in the 1870s and 1880s. Gerardus Theodorus Bom (1814-1884) was a Dutch publisher of books in Amsterdam, issuing such titles as Kindervreugd (1864), Robinson Cruso (c.1865), and Kunstenmakers at work (1875). Andriessen's first books were published under the pseudonym Pieter Jacobsz. Under his own name he wrote a series of romantic stories for young people, mainly derived from Dutch national history. N.

London, Printed for J. Roberts, in Warwick-Lane; J. Stagg, in Westminster Hall; and D. Browne, without Temple-Bar, 1727. Quarter-bound Leather. Third Edition (with price 2s. 6d below imprint in square brackets). Full of fascinating information relating to the etiquette and procedure of royal ceremonies. Small 4to (210 x 155mm): 80pp, with large folding copper-engraved frontispiece, "Procession of Kings and Queens with over 150 robed figures" (measuring a full 440 mm x 350 mm), a second folding engraving, "The Manner of the Champions, performing the Ceremony of ye Challenge," and 12 woodcuts in the text depicting various ceremonial objects, including crowns, maces, scepters, and coronation rings. Bound in early (possibly contemporary) quarter sheep with marbled boards, red morocco lettering piece gilt, all edges marbled. Bookplate of Buddle Atkinson to front paste-down. A sturdy, unsophisticated copy, frontispiece slightly spotted along folds, sporadic light soiling and browning, binding rubbed along spine and corners, but an excellent example of a scarce book. ESTC Citation No. T113877. Lowndes 526. Bindley pt. vi, 1039. Not in Halkett & Laing. Buddle Atkinson's bookplate appears in Hugo's Catalogue of Thomas Bewick's works, but it is, in fact, engraved on steel, not wood, and came from the workshop of Mark Lambert, one of Bewick's pupils. The plate was designed and engraved by George F. Robinson, who joined Lambert's workshop in 1841 and who, in the course of 50 years, became chief engraver and director of all art works carried out by the firm. The plate was produced when Atkinson (b.1841) was a young child, perhaps for putting in books that had been owned by his father, John Buddle, so it likely dates from 1845-1850. N. B.

BAEDEKER, Karl [Ludwig Johannes], 1801-1859
Northern France from Belgium and the English Channel to the Loire Excluding Paris and Its Environs; [with] Southern France and Corsica; Handbook for Travellers
Leipzig, Karl Baedeker, Publisher, 1914. Cloth. A complete two-volume set (each volume issued separately) of early editions for the traveler wanting a handy panoramic survey of the entire country, in matching bindings. Foolscap 8vo (158 x 99mm): xxxvi,454pp, with 16 maps and 55 plans (some folding); xxvi,648pp, with 42 maps, 63 plans, and a panorama. Publisher's red flexible cloth stamped in blind and gilt, all edges marbled, red and green silk page-makers. Northern: Fifth (and final) Edition. Southern: Sixth Revised Edition. Both volumes fine, all but unused (and scarce thus), bindings square and tight, richly marbled edges, pages and plans fresh and bright, maps properly folded and generally free of tears. A superb set. (Guide books were bought to be used, and as such their condition is rarely pristine.) Hinrichsen E119a and E126. "The Romantic movement in Germany had given a new impetus to travel . In 1828 Baedeker bought the rights to J. A. Klein's Rheinreise von Mainz bis Kln and, after the death of the author, Baedeker himself revised and updated the work, recreating it for a new market. Using his own travel experiences he guided the tourist to the principal attractions in each place, saving travellers the expense of hiring their own guide. He thus created a new type of guidebook, which was widely copied throughout Europe and opened up tourism to a new class of visitor. The reliability of the information was ensured by annual journeys by Baedeker himself and by reference to respected published sources and expert scholars. For the serious tourist a Baedeker was indispensable, its tone, especially with respect to southern Europeans, assuring northerners of their superiority, and suggesting ways of avoiding dangers. When Lucy Honeychurch finds herself ‘In Santa Croce with no Baedeker' in E. M. Forster's A Room with a View (1908), she is entirely lost." (ODNB) N. B.
