Les Aventures de Maitre Tetu
0. et de Miss Docile. Conte Allegorique. Traduit de l'Anglais pour l'instruction de la Jeunesse. Paris: Delarue,& Lille: Castiaux, n.d. [c. 1820?]; oblong 16mo (c. 12.5 x 11 cm).; 63 pp. with frontispiece and seven plates, all wood-cuts, coloured by hand; publisher's printed boards, title within an decorative border on front, illustration within same border on rear board; lacking spine, boards marked and a little darkened, original owner's name on half-title, text lightly spotted. An extremely rare French children's book, printed in Lille, an allegorical moral purportedly based on an English original. Experts have been consulted in vain to find an English book of which this could be a version, but it could nevertheless have been taken from an English source which was part of a larger collection of moral tales. The wood-cuts (hand-coloured as issued) are bold and very good. Two bear the initials C.S.J. in the block. The allegory itself shows Master Headstrong led astray by letting himself be led by Passion, but finally finding the path to Virtue and Religion through the good offices of Reason.

Bilder Und Reime,
0. 1184. Reime und Bilder fuer Kinder. Erste [und Zweite] Lieferung. Dresden, bei J.Naumann. Pictures and Rhymes, Rhymes and Pictures, for Children. London, D. Bogue, n.d. [1844]; c. 16.5 x 12.5 cm.; English publisher's red cloth, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, front board lettered in gilt with gilt pictorial vignette, yellow endpapers, a.e.g.; recased, one gathering detached, scattered foxing, some light finger-marks, light damp-stain to nearly half the contents. A rare and charming German illustrated children's book, which seems to survive as often as not in this two-language edition. This is not properly a bi-lingual edition, but the original Dresden edition, each page with a lithographed illustration and verse in German, printed on one side only, bound together with an English translation in letterpress of each verse, also printed on one side only. Compare the Oppenheim copy (Hauswedell & Nolte, Auktion 200 [1974], Lot 191, in later half leather), likewise German and English; Seebass II, 186 [offering just the Dresden Edition, a slightly cropped copy]: "Originalausgabe eines der feinsten Kinderbuecher der vierziger Jahre; es zeigt den Einfluss der Hey-Speckterschen Fabelausgben.."; Rmann, Die Illustrierten Bcher des 19. Jahrhunderts, No.1908. Hoff-Budde's 1922 bibliography of works illustrated by Ludwig Richter lists 29 of the 48 illustrations as lithographed after Richter. In our copy the first book of the German "Bilder und Reime" consists of illustrated title-page and 22 pages [of 24]: it lacks two pages - page 14 "Miesekaetzchen" and Page 16 "Der Morgen"; its first four pages were bound in the wrong order when the book was recased, while two other illustrations, pages 12 and 13, were misnumbered from the start by the printer. The second book of "Bilder und Reime" is complete, with title-page and 24 pages of illustrated text, though dampstained within the lower third of the pages. The English "Pictures and Rhymes" has one title-page, in letter-press, (as is correct,) and 47 (of 48) pages, the translator's "Preface" being printed on the verso of the first page of English verse; it lacks the text for "Puss". Photocopies of all the missing pages have been obtained and are supplied with our copy.

Plan of Edgeware Woods.
0. [in 1649]. Colour facsimile published c. 1910 [?] to accompany or be bound in to a publication of the Oxford Historical Society. Plan, or rather map, approx. 26 x 21 cm., printed with a key beside it and a wide blank margin on a sheet, including margins, approx. 35.5 x 63 cm. Light creases to top left-hand corner of map and to margins. Apparently published as a folding plate for a work or essay related to All Souls College, Oxford. The plan is also entitled "The Description of the Mannor of Edgeware in the Countye of Middlesex as the sam doth lye betweene the high waye that leadeth from St Albones to London called Watling Streete on the Southe West and the Mannor of Hendon in parte and the Mannor of Boyes lande in parte on the Easte and abutteth on the lands of Mr Paggington in parte ..drawne and made in the moneth of Aprill in the year of our Lorde MDLXXXXIX (1649). It shows the wood , which borders Watling Street on its West and extends South to Hendon, parcelled and let to various tenants. The parcels are shown with green borders made up of tiny trees, and a list of 22 freeholders or copyholders is printed beside it. The price quoted is for not one but for four copies.

ANON.,
Young Englands Little Library.
0. 1844. A Collection of Original Tales for Children, in Prose and Verse. By Eminent Authors. London, Wm. S. Orr & Co. Paternoster Row, 1844; small 4to; twentieth century binder's cloth, with gilt title "Little Library"; ink smudge to extreme outer edge of c. 30 pages, three or four very short marginal tears. The volume consists of eleven parts, which were also available to buy separately, of 24 to 32 pages, with numerous lithographic plates, most of which are lightly spotted. After the title-page, printed in red and black, and the frontispiece full-length portrait of "the Editor", there is an introduction and a contents leaf, which has been annotated in light pencil giving references in the Osborne Collection catalogue for such individual works present here as are listed there. The contents are: Adam the Gardener [abridged from Charles Cowden Clarke]; The Princess Narina [also atributed to Clarke]; Number One [Mrs S.C.Hall]; Perseverance [Clarke]; The Curate's Favourite Scholar [Mary Howitt]; The Remarkable Nigger and three more verse tales [F.W.N.Bailey]; Little Chatterbox [Mrs S.C.Hall]; Picture of the Virgin [Mary Howitt]; Savoyard Boy and his Sister [J.D.Haas, after Hermann Kletke]; Adventures of Jack Holyday [Albert Smith]; Glory [Thomas Gaspey]. The majority of the plates seem to be by John Absalon. The pagination at the end of three of the stories is erratic, or rather erroneous, but the texts are complete. Two of the verse-tales by F.W.N.Bailey are so overtly racist that it's hard to imagine how they would have appealed to the same readership as Clarke or Howitt, but this is perhaps a lesson this compilation inadvertently teaches.

[c. 1870]; [iv], 53pp. printed on one side of every leaf, with two or three hand-coloured vignettes after the author on nearly every page, publisher's list printed on the endpapers; publisher's olive-green cloth, decorated and illustrated in black and gilt;THE INITIAL CONDITION WAS: splits to hinges with slight losses at head and tail of spine, rear board partly faded, inner joints split, stitching defective to first gathering, hence front endpaper and first four pages detached, page 8 detached and chipped at edges, THEN RE-BACKED AND THE OLD SPINE LAID DOWN. slight embrowning, owner's name - Dorothy E. Hart in top margin of title-page, lacking rear free endpaper. Rare edition in English of one of Germany's most famous and most successful children's books. Wilhelm Busch owed his immense and lasting success to his humour and illustrations. Apparently the first translation into English was by C.T.Brooks, and was published in Boston in 1871; the British Library's copy of the anonymous translation we are offering, published with Busch's original illustrations and colouring by his original publisher, is dated 1874, but our copy is undated. We think it is of the 1870s, or just possibly early 1880s. No edition in Osborne.
