1 A.P. (?) Pen and Ink Sketches 1888
1888 Very Good 
Six leaves, with six ink drawings of a high amateur caliber, and and verse on the verso sides written in a neat, ornamental hand. Depicted are Croydon Mountain, the Sugar River, Lake Sunapee and Mosquito Hollow. On the back cover is writen "A Happy New Year", and so this thin book was prepared as a sentimental gift card. The artist initialed his work with what looks like "A.P.", and that is all one can tell about the creator. Foxing on the front and rear. The leaves are held by string which is now a bit loose.

4 Oppe, A. P.; edited by Geoffrey Holme Thomas Rowlandson. His Drawings and Water-Colours
London The Studio Magazine 1923 Limited First Edition Hardcover Fine Rowlandson, Thomas 
Book. Elephant Folio - over 15 - 23" tall. Limited edition of 200, of which this is number 172. viii, 32 pp of text, followed by 96 plates, 16 of which are mounted on and protected by tissue, upon which the caption is written. Plates are all on recto sides, with versos left blank, and each is folio sized, or 15.5 by 11.5 inches. Fine heavy stock handmade paper used. The book itself is bound in vellum or parchment and comes with cloth folio folder-style box or chemise which is sealed with ribbon ties. Everything about this book bespeaks a prestige or deluxe production by The Studio, and the care put into the book production likewise reflects the high esteem with which Rowlandson was held in the early twentieth century. For those who know Rowlandson solely as a humorist caricaturist, this book would be a revelation, for here is displayed his extraordinary range, with examples of his landscapes, seascapes, more serious city scenes, classical allegories, etc. perhaps even overshadowing his farcical imagery. Also the essay in the front is a concise appreciation in the best sense, somehow swiftly giving us a sense of the man, his times, his influences, or giving us a meaningful context by which to more fully understand the works beyond the delight they invariably impart. This copy of the Oppe work is in fine condition. The interior is pristine. Some very light tarnish (by which I mean a slightly orange hue, not to be confused with foxing) might be found in spots on the vellum, but I daresay few will find this at all a concern. The box has had wear along the edges but this has been addressed and discreetly remedied so that while signs of wear have not entirely disappeared, the box is strong, stable and quite attractive.
