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.

Oblong 4to, 21 by 27 cm. vi, 72, [1] pp. 25 hand-colored aquatint plates, including frontis, of ultra-Romantic castles, many of which were by then ruins, all of which were set in bucolic surroundings, whether by the windswept sea, a hillock, a meadow, etc. The work bespeaks the new-found fascination with the British architectural past and the incipient historicism, as perhaps captured well in the frontis comparison of arches from different periods. Contemporary half red-morocco, with title label on front board. Light to moderate foxing on text leaves and tissue guards. Plates are clean. Overall, a bright, lovely copy of a comparatively uncommon color plate book of that era.
