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.

London J. J. Stockdale 1815 First Edition Full Morocco Very Good 
4to. 28 by 21 cm. vii, errata, xiv, [2], 17-460 pp. 20 hand-colored plates of landscapes, buildings, costume. 2 full-page b/w maps. Several other b/w illustrations. All plates present, but not in identical order to Abbey 286, with "Flying Mountain", for example, in text, not frontis. Contemporary full red morocco, with old rebacking, original spine laid on. Veining and darkening to spine, and scuffing to boards, but binding remains, nonetheless, attractive. Moderate offsetting, as the norm with this book, since the publisher did not employ tissue guards. Other age toning and occasional light soiling to the text and plates.
