With time on our hands during the Coronavirus lockdown, we are reviewing the prices of some of our older stock and adjusting prices of books to ensure that they are the most attractive offering in the marketplace, as it is a reality of the antiquarian market for books that less expensive and mid-level material the trend has been inexorably downward, to the chagrin of booksellers and to the benefit of collectors.  Consequently, we have slashed prices anywhere between 20 percent and 60 percent of these books we have had listed for five years or more.  So we hope that anyone visiting the site might find something that might have become overpriced but now legitimately qualifies as a bargain.

Caricature of the Author Philip James Bailey (1816-1902), Ford, Henry Justice (1860-1941)

Author Name    Ford, Henry Justice (1860-1941)

Title   Caricature of the Author Philip James Bailey (1816-1902)

Book Condition   Near Fine

Seller ID   003458

N.d., circa 1900. The pen and ink ink drawing is 20 by 11.5 cm. Depicted is Philip James Bailey, who is carrying under his arms his 1839 magnum opus, the very long poem, "Festus", admired by Tennyson and other leading poets of the day, and supposedly an influence on James Joyce. The work was Bailey's only success, and he continued to add to it during his long life following its initial appearance. It is this pattern of accretions which Ford would appear to be lampooning in this caricature. Ford is best remembered today for illustrating the dozen Andrew Lang colored fairy book series, and next for illustrating works by Scott, Kipling and many others. He also did free-standing painting, and some of his work belongs now to museum collections. Matted.
