1 A New and Accurate Description of the Present Great Roads and the Principal Cross Roads of England and Wales, Commencing at London and continuing to the farthest Parts of the Kingdom...
London, England R. & J. Dodsley 1756 Presumed First Edition Disbound Good Plus Association Copy 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall 
First [and only?] edition. In contemporary [?] or very early full leather binding of brown calf. Boards present but completely and cleanly detached. The binding much rubbed and dessicated, especially along the spine. The hubbed spine bearing, in blind-stamp, "Roads of England." Also, at the spine tail, in much-rubbed gilt, the date 1756. The firmly bound text block retains great integrity. 7 x 4.5 inches. On rag content, laid paper. With title page, 6 unnumbered pages, 168 and lxiv numbered pages. Title page states, Price Bound Four Shillings. With a handsome tail-piece engraving at p. 161 and at p. xl. Tipped in to the FEP opposite page lxiv is a large fold-out B&W map with decorative cartouche, Kitchin's most Accurate Map of the Roads of England and Wales: with the Distances by the Mile-Stones, and other most exact Admensurations between Town & Town. Map measures 14.5 x 14.25 inches (37 x 36 cm). The map in remarkable condition; just a hint of age-toning. Book's pastedowns and opposite FEPs with glue off-settings. Front pastedown with the handsome armorial/pictorial bookplate of R.P.L. Booker. A blank front FEP with the inscription, likely in his own hand, "R. P. Lee Booker, Eton" in very small neat ink writing. Preliminaries lightly to moderately age toned. Tiny tear to middle of p. 15. Else a rather clean copy. Downgraded to Good Plus chiefly on account of the poor state of the binding. Deemed worthy of custom rebinding or restoration. This is a study of the then-present principal roads of England and Wales, with detailed descriptions of way-stations, landmarks, distances, &c. Includes a section about the itinerary of Antoninus and Roman stations in England. Perhaps the most remarkable and significant feature of the book is the fold-out map, a map that seldom survives in extant copies of the book. A rare book in any condition. R. P. Lee Booker [died 1922?] was educated at Winchester and New College, Oxford, where he gained a first class in Mods. and a second class in Lit. Hum. in 1887. No later than 1888 he was appointed to the faculty at Eton College, Windsor, eventually serving as a House Master. Booker apparently served in WWI. By 1920 Booker had left Eton in hopes that he would find suitable employment elsewhere, though he made some critical remarks about the education system. He commented on the difficulty of getting his work printed. Booker was exceptionally interested in English antiquity, archaeology and history. He was a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries [FSA]. Specific interests apparently included: Prehistoric monuments and earthworks; Roman monuments and Roman earthworks; English ecclesiastical monuments; English secular monuments. In that regard, and commencing around 1908, he was active in contributing extensively to an inventory of the ancient and historical monuments and constructions connected with or illustrative of the contemporary culture, civilization and conditions of life of the people in England from the earliest times to the year 1700.

He was the most influential painter on Orientalism and was proclaimed the chief of the new Orientalist School."

Arms of the Dutchess of Kendal
12 Arms of the Dutchess of Kendal
England Very Good Plus Fine Art Print 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall Hogarth, William 
This is a late 18th century English engraving after an oil painting by William Hogarth [1697-1764]. Arms of the Dutchess (sic!) of Kendal (and Munster; German Countess Ehrengard von der Schulenburg, Princess of Eberstein). Presumed circa 1790. Inscribed: Hogarth invt., A. M. Ireland sculpt. Not examined out of shrink-wrapped matting. Observable print size at least 6.5 x 5.5 inches. Size as matted is 11.5 x 10.5. Over all very clean save for very light toning/foxing along the left side of the left arms bearer. Niemeyer Rare Books provides to following interesting information: "Obviously unmarried and without issue, the lady is said to have been close to George I of Great Britain of the House of Hanover and followed him soon after his accession to the throne (1714), where he endowed her from 1716 on with several titles of nobility. Due to various German specimens, yet indeed also some absurdities, Hogarth seems to have worked the arms still before the deeds of 1716. Trusler not least praises the simplicity and elegance in the attitudes of the two young lateral arms bearers."

Beskrivelse over Danske Mynter og Medailler. I Den Kongelige Samling
15 Beskrivelse over Danske Mynter og Medailler. I Den Kongelige Samling
Copenhagen, Denmark N. Møller og Sön 1791 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Minus No Jacket Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall Fehrenholtz, G.; Bradt, F. L. 
Description of Danish Coins and Medals, the Royal Collection. Two volumes. First volume with title page dated 1791, Dansk Medailler og Mynter det Kongelige Kabinet. Second volume continues with part of the 1791 text and plates and also contains [in whole or in part] the addendum of 1794, Tillaeg til Beskrivelsen over Dansk Mynter og Medailler, I den Kongelige Samling. Edited by Georg Nielsen, Frederik Adam Müller and others. This substantial work was printed in antiqua by the Danish printer Nicolaus Møller. The large vignettes of the title page and of the introduction [Indledning] page of the first volume were engraved (and possibly drawn) by F.L. Bradt. The title page, in neo-classic style, and the part-title pages were engraved by G. Fehrenholtz. Elephant folio. 17 x 12 inches (424 x 289 mm). LXIV, 240; [ii], 619-812, [2] pages, with 91 full-page engraved plates in the first volume and with 118 full-page engraved plates in the second volume. According to some sources, but unconfirmed, there were 344 engraved plates in the complete three-volume edition, i.e., the two-volume set issued in 1791 and the supplement issued in 1794; missing in this copy offered for sale are, presumably, text pages 241-618 and corresponding plates for C. IV, F. III and C. V. Rebound. Bindings appear to be circa 1940s or 50s. Rust colored buckram binding, with spines lettered in gilt. Moderately bumped spine heads and tails and corners. As to each volume there is a crack between two gatherings [between the half title page and the title page of the first volume and between pages 600 and 641 of the second volume]. More a cosmetic issue than a structural issue, as the text blocks remain firmly attached to the bindings. Strong and fairly thick paper, not brittle or fragile. Occasional light spotting to the pages and plates, much less than one might expect in volumes of this age, and with most plates free of any spotting or soiling. First and only edition of the principal work on Danish numismatics. This monumental work is illustrated with finely engraved plates based on the massive collections of historical coins and medallions held in the Danish Royal Collection. Featured are coins and medallions of kings of the Oldenburg line, beginning with Christian I and ending with Christian VII, who was on the throne at the time of publication of this book. Featured are Christian I, Hans, C. II, Frederick I, C. III, and F. II. Largely absent are C. IV, F. III and C. V. [except for Plate III, Vol. II, Section "Samling af Medailler over Kongerne af den Oldenborgske Stamme" and Plates I-III, Vol. II, "Sigiller"] Continuing with F. IV, C. VI, F. V, and C. VII. The edition of 1791 consisted of two volumes: Text-volume: LXIV, 819, (4) pp. Plate-volume: engraved title page, 17 engraved part-titles and 319 (all) full page engraved plates. The edition of 1794 was an addendum or supplement and consisted of title page [2] 36 pages of text and, apparently, up to 25 full page plates. Bibliotheca Danica II:587. Slipped in is a lovely copy of the catalog, Ancient, English and Foreign Coins and Medallions, Christie's London, December 8, 1987, in which a similar copy of this book was listed at Lot 316.

Offered is a collection of approximately 30 different bookplates from the Boston Public Library, plus a few duplicates, as well as some bookplates associated with the Library of the University of Virginia.

Immensely clean; no evidence of tears or creasing. Condition is Near Fine to Fine. With thanks to James P. Keenan for the following Boston-related note regarding his bookplate business: "I spent days-weeks-months visiting libraries, looking at bookplates, learning about the artists, compiling checklists and evaluating condition of the plates. My friends and I would schedule appointments to visit the Print Department at the Boston Public Library. We’d spend hours at the library looking at bookplates and talking about the designs. Librarians would generally offer me one or several of their library’s bookplates as did bookbinders and printers that I worked with."
