GIBBS, PHILIP (ED.)
The Review of Reviews
London, 1921. Wraps.Royal 8vo,,A broken run of nine issues for volumes LXIII and LXIV,'The Review of Reviews' was started in January, 1890, by noted journalist and author W. T. Stead. Each issue contained magazine and book reviews, interviews with personalities of the times, critical articles (many written by Stead himself), and a running commentary on world events titled 'The Progress of the World'. Stead was drowned in the sinking of RMS Titanic and his position as editor as taken by Philip Gibbs. Our offering commences with the January, 1921, issue (Vol. LXIII, No. 373), and concludes with the December, 1921, issue (Vol. LXIV, No. 384). Considering the age and the quality of the paper used to print these periodicals, there are in exceptionally good condition. Each issue also contains many interesting advertisments of products, medicines, and services popular at the time. Authors whose work appears in these issues include Thomas Hardy, Bertrand Russell, Dame Edith Lyttleton, L. Haden Guest, Augustine Birrell, H. G. Wells, W. R. Inge, Alec Waugh and others. Sold as a lot of nine. Ill.: black-&-white illustrations.

[GOZZI, COUNT CARLO] SYMONDS, JOHN ADDINGTON (TRANSLATOR)
The Memoirs of Count Carlo Gozzi Four volumes
London, John C. Nimmo, 1888 and 1890. 1st edition. Hardcover. 8vo. Uniformly bound set in 3/4 dark blue morocco. Adolphe Lalauze etchings. The crushed morocco 3/4 leather binding is ruled in gilt over complimentary marbled bds. with matching marbled eps. The spines of each volume are in compartments. Each spine is dated and intricately tooled in a semi-pointille style. The top edge is gilt and each book has a slim silk, ribbon, marker. The corners and joints of each volume show minor wear and rubbing. Otherwise, the boards are in very nice condition. There are one or two tiny abrasions to the bands of vol. 1, Part 1, and the top of the spine of vol. 2, Part 2, has been dented. The contents are slightly age-toned at the margins, but are otherwise quite clean and bright. A very good set. Ill.: Adolphe Lalauze etchings. 'With Essays on Italian Impromptu Comedy, Gozzi's Life, The Dramatic Fables, and Pietro Longhi'. Although this is a four volume, uniformly bound set, it consists of two sets of two volumes: one a limited edition (#473/760) published in 1890, and described as Part 1, and the other an edition showing no limitation and a publishing date of 1888, and described as Part 2. Certainly, it is curious that the second part of this set precedes the first part in the year of publication. Both sets contain illustrations of Italian comedic subjects, drawn by Maurice Sand, engraved on copper by A. Manceau and delicately coloured by hand; as well as original etchings executed by Adolphe Lalauze. However, the 1888 (Part 2) set only contains three etchings and five coloured plates (and lacks a List of Illustrations). The 1890 (Part 1) set has such a List, which calls for a frontispiece portrait and six etchings, as well as eleven hand coloured plates (all present and in fine condition).
