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 Meredith, Mrs. Charles and Louisa Anne Twamley The Romance of Nature; Or, The Flower Seasons Illustrated
London Charles Tilt 1839 Third Edition Full Morocco Very Good 
8vo. xx, 255, [5] pp. With 27 hand-colored botanical plates, including the ornamental title-page. (The list of plates counts up to 28 plates but there is no mention of a second plate.) The text is an anthology of English verse and appreciations celebrating the natural world, the seasons and their flora. Most of the poems are original to this work, but heading sections as well as interspersed throughout are excerpts from Shakespeare, Herrick, Raleigh and the like. To the modern audience it is, unquestionably, the lovely visual depictions that matter. A few plates have light soiling, but most are clean, as is the text. Tightly bound. Rebacked in modern green morocco that is compatible with original blindstamped and gilt decorated morocco. There is considerable wear to the old boards, which are nonetheless still attractive. (8.5 by 6 inches.) 
Price: 250.00 USD
