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: B. T. Batsford, London, England, 1907. Unbound. Book Condition: Very Good Minus. Vulliamy, Lewis; Moses, Henry (illustrator). First Edition Thus. Presumed first [and only?] printing of the first edition thus. The plates originally appeared in "Examples of Ornamental Sculpture in Architecture, drawn from the Originals in the Years 1818-21," published in 1825. Preface dated August 1907. Presumed printed and bound in Great Britain. This edition printed by the publisher from the original copper plates of the artist. Ex library but with very few of the usual ex library markings, and in any case a non-circulating copy. 19.5 x 13.25 inches. With two large folded sheets of text, including a title page, a preface page, and four pages of explanatory text for the plates, a headpiece illustration and a plan of the Temple of Apollo Didymaeus. With 20 unbound B&W full-page plates, as called for. All plates drawn on copper by Lewis Vulliamy and engraved by Henry Moses with exquisite and painstaking draughtsmanship. The paper on which the engravings are pulled appears to be mould-made cream stock. Plates 3 and 5 with a little light soiling/spotting into the plates. The remaining plates appear to be unfoxed or else with a few tiny marginal spots. All pages with minor bumping/rippling to the lower corner, in the margins only, not into the images. Tiny blindstamp of the college library to the top of the title page, scarcely noticeable. Scattered foxing to the four text pages containing notes on the plates. Else a clean copy. Housed in a contemporary port-foilio of dark green buckram spine and corners and with dark green paper hardboards, the front board with elaborate black-stamped lettering. The binding lightly soiled. A library call number in small white ink hand to the spine. The port-folio with moderately bumped spine head and tail and corners. Original green cloth ties fully intact. The front pastedown of the port-folio with white label of the college library. A Very Good Minus copy. Extremely scarce in any condition. "The plates included in this work are a selection from those which were published in 1825 by Lewis Vulliamy, the architect, on his return from the tour which he made through Greece, Asia Minor, and Italy, as travelling student of the Royal Academy." The 1825 edition is virtually unobtainable. Also included with this purchase is "Examples of ornamental sculpture in architecture drawn from the originals of bronze, marble and terra cot[ta] in Greece, Asia Minor and Italy." Isha Books, New Delhi, 2013. Isha gives the original date of publication as 1823. The Isha publication, a hardback with DJ, is a crude photocopy reprint in much reduced size (11x 8.5 inches) but contains 40 plates, half of which are in the Spiers 1907 edition. Viewing the Isha publication one can appreciate the extraordinary crispness of detail in the Spiers edition. Size: Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 007198

Folio (circa 280 × 380 cm), 96 pp, [4], an illuminated title-page frontispiece with vignettes of Karnak, Naples, Venice, Cairo, Athens, Belem Castle and Constantinople, 40 tinted lithographs hors text + 67 woodcut illustrations in text, half-title, original blue calf binding, title gilt on raised spine (rubbed) edge wear to top of spine, with small loss of cover, binding rubbed, paper slightly browned, small water stain on frontispiece at the bottom of the page, occasional spotting, otherwise copy in very good condition.First Edition. Later editions appeared in 1845 and 1846. Allan spent a year - from April 1841 to June 1842 - travelling in the Mediterranean. The plates are after drawings by the author and illustrate mostly sites in Egypt but also Rhodes, Cos, Asia Minor and Greece. John Harrison Allan was from Britain. 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. The plates illustrating this large-format work were based on drawings made by Allan himself. The edition is comprised by forty lithographs and sixty-eight wood engravings. The voyage began in Liverpool. The ship reached Venice by way of Gibraltar and Malta, sailed across the Adriatic and the Aegean sea and reached Istanbul. In continuation, the company sailed along the coast of Asia Minor, stopped over at Syros and set anchor at Alexandria. They explored Egypt down to the cataracts of the Nile in Assouan and returned to Alexandria. After a stopover at Malta, they were in Syros again, from where they travelled to Athens. 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.

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.

Item Description: London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1855-6, 1855. 8 volumes, octavo. Near contemporary plum half hard-grained morocco, matching pebble-grained cloth, title gilt direct to spines, narrow bands, gilt rolls, marbled edges and endpapers. Light shelf-wear, boards variably sunned, largely just a narrow strip at the fore-edges, but the rear board of volume VIII heavily sunned, light toning, some offsetting from the frontispiece maps, but overall a very good set. 13 maps and plans, 7 of them folding. The Thirlwall's History was first published 1835–44 as part of Lardner's Cabinet Cyclopaedia. The "work entailed prodigious labour. At Cambridge, where the first volume was written, he used to work all day until half-past three, when he left his rooms for a rapid walk before dinner, at that time served in hall at four; in Yorkshire he is said to have worked sixteen hours a day in his study. By a curious coincidence he and George Grote, his friend and schoolfellow [at Charterhouse], were writing on the same subject at the same time, unknown to each other. On the appearance of Grote's first two volumes in 1846 Thirlwall welcomed them with generous praise Grote in the preface to his work bore testimony to Thirlwall's learning, sagacity, and candour" (ODNB). Solidly, attractively bound, and very well preserved. Bookseller Inventory # 109144
