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.

1 Campbell, Alexander A Journey from Edinburgh Through Parts of North Britain, et. Al.
London T. N. Longman and G. Rees 1802 First Hardcover Very Good to Fine 
Book. 4to - over 9. Two volumes, xxiv + 408 pp., viii + 396, 44 full page aquatints in all. 3/4 modern calf binding. These two volumes by Alexander Campbell are part of the great travel illustrated plate book tradition that reached its pinnacle in the early nineteenth century before the advent of steel engravings, which made illustrations more readily available but lacked the warmth, beauty and artisanship that characterized the various techniques of printed illustration preceding. This was also a time when Scotland had achieved a certain ascendency, with its eighteenth century Enlightenment having dispelled its courser stereotype from earlier times of clan strife. Both quarto volumes, each measuring almost 11 inches by 9 inches, are very tight with strong and very handsome modern bindings. The pages have age toning but are generally clean with only the lightest of occasional foxing, and same with the gorgeous plates. There is the typical offsetting of the plates onto the opposite pages. The plates capture the rural and pastoral so effectively that they come off to us like out of a dream. This is a bygone world that in our age we can only fantasize. Photo(s) available upon request.
