Item Description: Maggs Bros Ltd, London, first edition, 1989., 1989. Edition of 300 copies. Original boards, folio, 35 cm, xxi, 446 pp, xvi pages of plates (some colour). From the publisher's advertisement: "The publication of [the] Henry Blackmer catalogue is an important event in Greek and Levantine studies. Never has such an extensive collection been catalogued in such detail. There are over 1800 entries, mainly printed books but including manuscripts, photographs and drawings. Every book is described with a signature collation and plate count: in difficult cases a full plate list is printed. Physical bibliography is followed by an historical account of each book, setting it and the author in context. The non book materials are described in equal detail and particular attention is paid to the interrelation between different items. The late Henry Blackmer was an American banker who settled in Athens and formed this remarkable collection as a tribute to his adopted country. The books range in date from the 15th to the 19th century, and include many books of travel, archaeological and architectural treatises, costume books, political tracts and historical accounts of wars, battles and sieges in all the languages of the Eastern mediterranean."With a bibliography and index. Covers a trifle sunned, otherwise Near Fine. 0901953067. Bookseller Inventory # ABE-05342

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

Item Description: London, Printed for Tho. Passinger, at the Three Bibles on London-Bridge., , 1683. Quarto, 171x122mm. In 19th century full, mid-tan russia, elaborately decorated in the 17th century style with a gilt panel surrounded by a broad gilt roll incorporating leaves and flowers; decorative gilt roll on edge of boards and inner gilt rolls. Binding slightly rubbed at extremities, with very small hole in calf in centre of front board. Sometime rebacked, relaying the original spine; four raised bands, with gilt decoration on the bands, ornate gilt decoration in the compartments and title gilt. All edges gilt. Type-written catalogue entry for this book (before it was rebacked) tipped in at head of front paste-down, beneath which there is the armorial book-plate of Henry Francis Lyte 'Laetitia et Spe Immortalitatis'. [The Reverend Henry Francis Lyte, M.A., 1793-1847, was born in Ednam, Roxburghshire, Scotland, and educated at Portora Royal School, Eniskillen, Ireland. He entered Trinity College Dublin in 1811 and was admitted ad eundem at Oxford in June 1834. Henry was curate at Marazion in Cornwall when he married Anne Maxwell in January 1818; they had five children. Henry moved to Brixham in April 1824 where he established the first Sunday school in the Torbay area, with over 700 pupils and a staff of 80. In 1826 Henry was instituted as the first incumbent of All Saints Church in Lower Brixham, a post he held until his death. Henry supplemented his income by educating 'the wayward sons of nobility' together with his own children. One of the wayward sons became Lord Salisbury, three times Prime Minister during the reign of Queen Victoria. Henry wrote poetry as well as the hymns 'Abide With Me', traditionally sung at Wembley before the FA Cup final, initially at the suggestion of King George V, and 'Praise my soul the King of Heaven'. In 1947 a memorial tablet to Henry Frances Lyte was placed in Westminster Abbey. Henry collected antiquarian religious books and his library of 4,500 books, amassed with the help of his son, took 16 days to auction in London after his death; the sale catalogue, marked with the sale price realised for each item, may still be seen in the National Library.] Small cream roundel with brown border centred on front free end-paper with illustration and 'Still am I busy, bookes assembling, | For to have plentie is a pleasaunt thing. | Shyp of Folys | Pynson 1509, fol.'. [4], 124, 123-242 [i.e. 244]; [4], 167, [1] pages; signatures A-Z4, 2A-2H4; A2, B-Y4 (gathering 2C1-4 mis-folded by the original binder and runs 2C1, 2C4, 2C3, 2C2). Small ownership stamp: ‘Alexander Gardyne [1801-1885], 1883’, on verso of second blank. The tipped-in catalogue description for this book states: ‘ sadly the enthusiastic binder has cropped the margins with some loss of last lines and catchwords (particularly to the prelims of the first part, the second and third being reasonably unscathed).’ Printed in black letter and roman type. Titles within ornamental woodcut border. Some pen and sepia ink decoration in margin of page 191. Early paper repair at foot of page 227 affecting last line of text.
