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.

Folio. Large paper edition. 34 by 25 cm. Etched title, followed by 24 etched plates of anthropomorphic monkeys, acting out scenes from Shakespeare or illustrating lines from Cowper, Dryden and others. Thomas Landseer was the brother of the more famous Sir Edwin Landseer and was best known for making many fine engravings of his brother's work. "Monkey-ana" is one of the few works he engraved from his own designs. These designs are as full of spirit, originality, whimsy and mastery as anything by Sir Edwin. On china paper mounted on wove rag. The work was originally issued in six parts of four etchings each, and the six original wrapper covers are bound in at the end. These wrapper covers are lightly foxed. Otherwise, the plates are crisp and clean, with only the most occasional, light finger smudging on an margin edge. One plate cut slightly shorter than the rest. Bound in contemporary half red morocco. Marbled paper boards. Light wear to the binding.
