About this Item: W. Bulmer, London, 1796. Bewick, John and Thomas (illustrator). Quarto. Two books bound together in one volume: xx, 76; xv, vii, 126pp. First editions thus. With a fore-edge painting by the "double-line" painter depicting the pastoral village of Lissoy where Oliver Goldsmith spent his youth, standing in for the pseudonymous town of Auburn in Goldsmith's poem, "The Deserted Village." The artist has written the title, "Lissoy ('Auburn' of 'The Deserted Village')," on the flyleaf in pen. The first book in the volume, Poems by Goldsmith and Parnell, is illustrated with four full-page, wood-engraved plates, by Thomas Bewick and one by John Bewick, and eight wood-engraved vignettes drawn by Robert Johnson or John Bewick, and engraved by Thomas Bewick. The second book, The Chase by William Somerville, has thirteen wood-engraved vignettes, including title pages, engraved by Thomas Bewick after designs by John Bewick. The Bewick brothers were the leaders of the development of the art of wood engraving at the end of the eighteenth century. In particular, Thomas Bewick extended the range of the art by creating "a new conception of the black and white picture." These books were splendidly printed by Bulmer at his Shakespeare Printing Office. In The Bewick Collector, Thomas Hugo describes Poems by Goldsmith and Parnell as "A magnificent result of the efforts of the wood engraver, type-founder, papermaker, and printer" and writes that The Chase "contains the best specimens of John Bewick's abilities as a designer." Bound in contemporary red straight-grain morocco with double-fillet border and a wide double-fillet frame with semi-circle insertions. This special presentation of the two books was done for Baronet Sir John James Smith, whose gilt armorial coat-of-arms is stamped in the center of the covers. With marbled endpapers and gilt dentelles to the inside edges of the covers. Housed in a matching chemise and slipcase. Binding shows some light rubbing and wear, slight bump to bottom edge of front cover, else a fine copy with a bright fore-edge painting. The bookplate of Sir John James Smith has been covered over by the armorial bookplate of Frederick S. Deck. (Tattersfield JB50 & JB8; Weber, pp. 95-96; Hugo 78 & 94; Ray, England, 50, [Goldsmith only]). Seller Inventory # 24575

About this Item: Harrap, 1929. FIRST RACKHAM EDITION, 4/775 COPIES signed by the artist, 12 colourprinted plates and other illustrations in the text, all by Arthur Rackham, title and Rackham design on title-page printed in red, preliminary leaves foxed, one leaf a little creased, pp. 232, 4to, original cream parchment, lettering and design on backstrip and lettering on front cover within a double-rule border, all blocked in gilt, endpapers with designs in green by Rackham, t.e.g., others untrimmed, very good. Publisher, George Harrap's copy, with his bookplate on the front free endpaper verso. Beneath the statement of limitation is a pen-and-ink drawing by Rackham, drawn for Harrap, of a character leading his horse with one hand whilst placing money into a beggar's outstretched hand with the other. The drawing is also signed by Arthur Rackham. A REVEALING AND IMPORTANT 3-page letter from Rackham to the publisher George Harrap is loosely inserted, dated 22 Jan/30. Rackham was recovering from an operation and apologises for the fact that 'I am afraid I have to conclude that I shall not be able to do a book at all this year - unless, later, there happened to be just time for "The Night before Christmas"' (eventually published in 1931). Presumably upon recommendation, he had read Our Village and Cranford: 'I have seized the opportunity to read "Our Village" - I really don't find myself much interested in it. But I have considered it, & Cranford, most carefully: I frankly don't feel fitted for either of them. The charming depiction & gentle view of character which is their strength is beyond me to illuminate.' He proceeds to relate that with which he is more at ease 'I need greater license - something that allows a freer interpretation. The Vicar came more readily - partly because its period is just enough more remote. But I wish I could discover something that allowed a more fantastic, or even grotesque, & less respectful treatment.' (Latimore & Haskell p.65: Riall p.170). Seller Inventory # 57460

About this Item: Worcester Massachusetts: Isaiah Thomas, 1787. First Worcester edition. 16mo. Finely bound by Riviere in full green morocco with raised bands and gilt titles to the spine. Double filleted gilt borders to the covers and elaborate gilt dentelles. Top edge gilt, others uncut. 2pp of publisher's terminal adverts. A fine copy, uncut and unpressed and mainly unopened. Woodcut frontispiece and 32 further woodcuts in the text. The History of Little Goody Twoshoes was the most famous publication of John Newbury, regarded by many as the "The Father of Children's Literature" and the first publisher to sustainably specialise in publishing children's literature. Newbury first published the book in London in 1765 and it instantly established itself as one of the most popular children's books of the period. Writing in 1881, Charles Welsh states, "few nursery books have had a wider circulation, or have retained their position so long. The number of editions that have been published, both in England and America, is legion, and it has appeared in mutilated versions, under the auspices of numerous publishing houses in London and the provinces." This Worcester edition was long considered the first American edition, before evidence of a New York edition of 1775 and a Boston edition of 1783, though no complete copy of either is known, making this the earliest obtainable American edition.

About this Item: Isaiah Thomas, Worcester, Mass, 1787. FIRST WORCESTER EDITION. 100 x 65 mm. (4 x 2 1/2"). 2 p.l., 7-158 pp., [1] leaf (ads). FIRST WORCESTER EDITION. ORIGINAL GREEN AND GILT DUTCH PAPER WRAPPER. In a modern custom green cloth chemise and morocco-backed slipcase. With frontispiece after Thomas Bewick mounted on inside front cover and 35 woodcuts in the text. Verso of title page with early ink inscription of C. C. Thomas. Welch 463.4; Rosenbach 118; Church 1219; Evans 20412; ESTC W20449. Small ink stain to head of title page, mild offsetting in the text bed, the fragile wrappers rather worn, missing the tips of three corners, and with short tears to head and tail of front joint, tiny chip at top of spine, but these defects unsurprising, and, in all, A REMARKABLE AND VERY PLEASING SURVIVAL as a well-preserved complete copy that is clean and fresh internally. This is the earliest obtainable American edition and an utterly charming example of a work the British Library calls "one of the most important children's books of the 18th century, being perhaps the first really successful children's novel." It was first issued in London in 1765 by John Newbery, one of the earliest publishers to print books expressly for children's entertainment. American editions were printed in New York (1775), Boston (1783), and Philadelphia (1786), but few copies of these survived, and the rare survivals are usually incomplete. The story here of an orphan girl who rises from rags and a single shoe to a life of wealth and philanthropy through virtuous living is generally attributed to Oliver Goldsmith, but the identity of the author has not been definitively determined. The book was enormously popular through most of the 19th century, and the title has now become an epithet for an ostentatiously virtuous person. In addition to being in surprisingly fine condition internally, the present copy is distinguished by the presence of the original Dutch paper wrappers described by Welch.

About this Item: David McKay Company, [, Philadelphia, 1929. 267 x 206 mm. (10 1/2 x 8 1/8"). No. 95 OF 200 COPIES for America (and 575 for England) SIGNED BY THE ARTIST. Very attractive red three-quarter morocco, gilt (stamp-signed "Putnams" along front turn-in), raised bands, spine handsomely gilt in compartments formed by plain and decorative rules, quatrefoil centerpiece surrounded by densely scrolling cornerpieces, sides and endleaves of rose-colored linen, top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed and mostly UNOPENED. 12 COLOR PLATES BY RACKHAM (including the frontispiece) as well as five full-page and several smaller illustrations in the text. Hudson, p. 171; Latimore & Haskell, p. 65. Front board with insignificant small, round spot to cloth, but A FINE COPY, unusually bright and clean inside and out, with almost no signs of use. Written in 1761-62 but not published until four years later, "The Vicar of Wakefield" was said to have been rescued from some of Goldsmith's unpublished manuscripts by Dr. Johnson, who thus saved the penniless author from imprisonment by selling it to a publisher for £60. Considered to be the masterpiece of the middle-class domestic novel, the "Vicar" has never gone out of style because its whimsically delineated characters have a delightful simplicity that somehow insulates them against ultimate misfortune, and the innocent and virtuous are rewarded, as they should be, in the end. The total number of volumes of the present edition that featured our special pictorial binding is unknown, but it cannot be a great many.

The total number of volumes of the present edition that featured our special pictorial binding is unknown, but it cannot be a great many. No. 95 OF 200 COPIES for America (and 575 for England) SIGNED BY THE ARTIST. Seller Inventory # ST11778m

About this Item: J. Nourse, London, 1779. Eight volumes, octavo; profusely illustrated; a handsome set in contemporary tree calf, spine elaborately gilt, gilt dentelles. This work by the eminent novelist and essayist Oliver Goldsmith (1728-1774) provides a remarkable snapshot of the late-eighteenth century.New Holland had just been discovered and is represented by the "Kanguroo" (after Stubbs), quaintly described as being: "often known to weigh above sixty pounds, and must consequently be as large as a sheep." A number of now extinct species, including the dodo, are featured. Goldsmith includes descriptions of various human races: Laplanders, Chinese, Africans, North American Indians, pondering the human condition with chapters on "Sleep and hunger", "Old Age and Death". Most of the information is taken from secondary sources, yet in Goldsmith's accessible prose it is rendered charming. His "chief ambition is to drag up the obscure and gloomy learning of the cell to open inspection; to strip it from its garb of austerity, and to shew the beauties of that form, which only the industrious and the inquisitive have been hitherto permitted to approach". Goldsmith's history was incredibly popular and went through over twenty editions, this being the second (published posthumously). He was held in sufficient esteem by Johnson as to offend Boswell and of whom Thomas De Quincy wrote "All the motion of Goldsmith's nature moved in the direction of the true, the natural, the sweet, the gentle".

"James Macdonald (1850-1920) was born in Scotland and trained as a bookbinder. In 1873 he came to the United States and worked with William Matthews, one of America's pre-eminent binders. He left Matthews when he had saved enough money to start his own binding business. The Macdonald bindery, established in 1880, soon became one of the most sought-after binderies in this country. In an interview with the New York Herald in November 1910, James Macdonald acknowledged that hand- binding in the industrial age was a dying art, '?the world is moving away from the art of the book lover. The world is swifter now, but it is not so thorough in many things as it once was. The average man has become used to the product of the machine. Today he knows no other standard. He has lost his touch for half-tones - for the cover of a book has its half-tones.'"After the Club Bindery closed in 1909 "James Macdonald purchased the largest part of the tools" (Thompson). Unaffected by the changing developments of the book and binding industry, the Macdonald bindery produced some of the finest bindings of its time both for themselves and for publishers and bookstores such as: Brentano's, Scribners, E.P. Dutton and Co., Gotham Book Mart and others" (Christie's, April 12, 2000). Seller Inventory # 02152

About this Item: London: Printed for J. Johnson; R. Badwin; F. C. & J. Rivington; and others., 1809. Tenth edition overall, the first edition with Coote’s continuation. Inscribed by William Wilberforce to his son Samuel Wilberforce. Four volumes. Contemporary speckled calf, modern title labels. Bookplate of the Wilberforce Library, Backsettown to the front endpaper of each volume. A very good set, the bindings rubbed and worn at the hinges but firm and square. The contents remain clean throughout. Inscribed by William Wilberforce in black ink on the front pastedown of volume I "Saml Wilberforce / Jany 12th 1818 / The Gift of his dear Father / W Wilberforce / when going to Nuneham / the second time". Further inscriptions by William Wilberforce to Samuel on the pastedown of the remaining three volumes. A gift from the anti-slavery campaigner William Wilberforce to his third child Samuel who studied briefly under the tutelage of the Rev. E. G. Marsh. Samuel went on to be become Bishop of Oxford and is perhaps best remembered for his opposition to Charles Darwin's Theory of Evolution in the famous debate at the British Association in 1860. The bookplates in each volume would indicate that this set remained in the Wilberforce family for several generations, Backsettown being the residence of Samuel’s granddaughter Octavia Wilberforce and her long term companion and woman’s rights campaigner Elizabeth Robins. The two later established Backsettown as a convalescent home for overworked professional women, where in 1941 Octavia treated Virginia Woolf.

Courtney (Johnson), p. 113 ("The last four lines in Goldsmith's Deserted Village were by Johnson."). Temple Scott, pp. 238-252 (A "poem without which we should be poor indeed. . . . Such a demand for a poem [citing four authorized edition published within the first 30 days of first publication] passed all anticipations; it was never heard of in those days."). ESTC T146768. "Completed at some time in 1769, [and,] after at least six months of further revisions, The Deserted Village was finally published in 16 May 1770, as a quarto pamphlet, and six more editions appeared that same year. Nearly all the first reviews were favourable . . . Despite widespread resistance to its mourning the disruptive effects of enclosure [laws], The Deserted Village none the less gave fresh expression to the traditional form of elegy. Early readers admired the nostalgic descriptions of a vanished village life, with its vivid portraits of the preacher, the blacksmith, the schoolmaster, and the widow." (ODNB) "Goldsmith's The Deserted Village is not the greatest of the English elegies, but in its successful adjustment of serious Tory thought with gracious charm and in its successful redefinition of the pastoral elegy in terms of contemporary experience, Goldsmith's excellent and indispensable poetry may be said to deserve our admiration as well as our affection."
