Item Description: Éditions d'Art F. Boissonas, Geneva, 1920. Boissonnas, Fred. (illustrator). First English language edition. Folio, iv, 5-133 pp., with 40 full-page photogravure plates with printed tissue guards, and numerous photogravures in text. Decorative borders and devices in color, printed on handmade paper. Printed wrappers, titled in gilt, with an orange inset medallion of Pegasus on the front cover. New spine applied, modest stain on rear wrapper and faint stain to top corner Over all certainly very good, with the photogravures beautifully rendered. Fred Boissonnas (1858 - 1946) was from an influential family of photographers, initially situated in Geneva. His accomplishments in photography enabled him to travel widely and often, and from these travels he produced several books, including works on Greece and Egypt. His Greek images totaled over 7000 photographs made with large format cameras, and are inclusive of historical architectural remains, and vistas and landscapes. In the early 20th century he founded the publishing firm of Boissonnas S.A., which produced several exquisite limited editions illustrated with hand-pulled photogravure plates, elegant design and letterpress of several color inks. In 1910 he made EN GRÈCE PAR MONTS ET PAR VAUX from his enormous archive of Greek negatives. That lavish large folio was limited to 230 numbered copies printed on handmade paper; in 1936 he also issued a second edition in a smaller folio format with a larger limitation. This is the first edition published in English, and has a limitation of 300 numbered copies. Bookseller Inventory # 30183

Item Description: London T. Cadell and W. Davies, 1808. First edition. 5 volumes, 4to., a few spots otherwise very good, contemporary half russia, marbled boards, gilt panelled spines in five compartments, gilt lettered direct in second, numbered in fourth, others richly gilt, light wear, an excellent set. "In 1784 he [Mitford] published the first volume of his principal work, the History of Greece. This was on an unprecedentedly large scale. Previous treatments (the Grecian histories of Temple Stanyan and Oliver Goldsmith) had been moralistic compilations. Mitford's first volume covered events from early times to the end of the Persian wars (479 BC). The outbreak of the French Revolution in 1789 had a great impact on Mitford. The second volume of his History, which appeared in 1790, took the story of events in Greece down to 404 BC and gave ample scope for an analogy between the radical democrats of fifth-century Athens and the revolutionaries in France. In 1797 he published the third volume of his History, covering the period from the oligarchic coup of the Thirty Tyrants in Athens at the end of the Peloponnesian War in 404 BC to the peace of Antalcidas (between Sparta and Persia) in 386. This volume covers the rise of Mitford's hero, Philip of Macedon; but it is prefaced by a résumé of the late fifth century, in order to re-emphasize what is repeatedly called 'a tyranny in the hands of the people' at Athens. Such was now the climate of opinion in England that, whereas in 1790 Mitford had incurred liberal criticism, his more extreme comments in 1797 won wide acclaim. In 1808 appeared the fourth volume of the History, covering events from 386 to the battle of Chaeronea in 338 (when Philip established his supremacy in Greece). The fifth and final volume of his History was published in 1818, ending with the death of Alexander the Great in 322 BC. In the fourth and fifth volumes he praised the monarchy of Macedon, as in the first he had praised the kingdoms of early Greece: in both he saw (with some straining of the evidence) parallels to the balanced constitution of Britain in his own day."

Like them, it was received with universal acclamation, was translated into French and German, shaped the European conception of its subject-matter throughout the nineteenth century, and still merits respect as a monument of industrious Victorian scholarship' (Printing and the Mind of Man 321).

Item Description: 1859. Folio (390 x 270mm). Contemporary half red roan gilt over cloth, spine gilt in compartments and lettered in one, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers; letterpress title and index, printed on the rectos of 2 bifolia, 44 double-page steel-engraved maps hand-coloured in outline, numbered [1]-25 and 28-46, one large folding steel-engraved map of India numbered '26 & 27' hand-coloured in outline and laid down on linen,and one double-page hand-coloured steel-engraved plate of the principal mountains and rivers of the world, all except the first two maps by and after John Dower; boards somewhat marked and scuffed, slight cracking on joints, occasional light spotting or browning, some maps with skilfully-repaired short tears on margins or folds, otherwise a good copy; provenance: 'Grace V. Pocock, 1861' (inscription on front flyleaf, most probably Grace Vernon Pocock (nà e Buzzacott, 1806-1868), wife of:) -- John Thomas Pocock (1814-1876, armorial bookplate on upper pastedown, and by descent). Teesdale's A New General Atlas of the World was first published in 1832 (with maps dated 1831), and further editions followed in 1835, 1836, 1837, 1838, etc. down to this (and possibly later) editions; all follow the format of this edition, with the same number of maps by John Dower (fl. 1838-1846) on the same subjects. However, the maps have been re-engraved to include the most recent discoveries (for example, the map of the United States shows 'recently acquired territories' and railways 'in progress, or projected'; Kane's discovery of 'North Grinnell Land' in 1855 is shown in the Arctic). This copy was previously in the collection of J.T. Pocock, who had left England for Australia as a young man, following the failure of his father's successful property development business. Sadly, the Australian settlement he was travelling to had failed, so he travelled to Cape Town, where he established a successful business and married Grace Vernon Buzzacott in 1841. The inscription 'Grace V. Pocock, 1861' is most probably that of his wife, with whom he visited London in 1861, but it is also possible that it is by their daughter, also called Grace Vernon (1843-1877). Cf. Phillips, Atlases 812 (ed. 'Corrected to 1854'). Bookseller Inventory # 2055686

A handsome set. Undertaken at Gibbon's urging, "Mitford's history for many years remained popular, and had the merit of supplying a laborious English work on a comparatively neglected subject. It was superior at most points to the Greek history by John Gillies published in 1786 É It may be added that Mitford never visited Greece, never travelling beyond Naples" (DNB). Lowndes, p. 1580.

Item Description: Richard Priestley, London, 1824. Three volumes, octavo, with seven folding engraved maps and plates; a fine set in contemporary dark green half morocco, gilt, with the library label of Kimbolton Castle. A handsome set of Pausanias' Description of Greece, the second-century guide-book to the Peloponnese and northern Greece.Pausanias' fascinating and wide-ranging description of ancient Greek life and culture was conceptualised and organised geographically rather than chronologically, and comprises a series of reminiscences of classical Greek life evoked by his visits to ancient monuments. A proud Greek living in the Roman Empire, he could not help but muse about the golden age of Greece, which in his lifetime was but an idealised memory.Although ignored during his own lifetime, Pausanias' work has proved to be of great importance for our present-day understanding of the period. Archaeologists have made much use of his descriptions to identify the remains of ancient sites. As Sir James Frazer wrote, 'Without [Pausanias] the ruins of Greece would for the most part be a labyrinth without a clue, a riddle without an answer. His book furnishes the clue to the labyrinth, the answer to many riddles. It will be studied so long as ancient Greece shall continue to engage the attention and awaken the interest of mankind'.This is the second edition in English, translated by Thomas Taylor the Platonist. The maps, one of Ancient Greece and one of the world, are after the French cartographer Jean-Baptiste d'Anville; the plates are after painter and architect James Stuart.

From the publisher's advertisement: "The publication of [the] Henry Blackmer catalogue is an important event in Greek and Levantine studies.

He was a member of the Athenian Archaeological Society and the Egyptian Society of Cairo. He made a journey to the Mediterranean from April 1841 to June 1842. This Grand Tour of the East had become quite usual for wealthy European in the 19th century, and was considered almost a necessity, as a means to educate oneself and as a sign of social status. Allan published his memoir in 1843, creating a work, of interest above all for its illustrations, which was republished two times.

They toured Attica, the Peloponnese, Delphi, and reached Patras. They then visited the Ionian islands, and sailed to Malta, Sicily, Southern Italy, Rome, Marseilles, Barcelona, Malaga and Lisbon.
