2 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.

Observations, &c.; A Letter to Lord John Russell on Reform in Parliament; The Revolution of Thirty-One; The King can do no Wrong
10 Observations, &c.; A Letter to Lord John Russell on Reform in Parliament; The Revolution of Thirty-One; The King can do no Wrong
London, England C. J. G. and F. Rivington 1831 First Edition Thus Half-Leather Very Good Minus 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 
Between 1831 and 1832 three different sets of bills aimed at reforming the English representative system were considered by Parliament. Offered here is a group of four pamphlets, handsomely bound in one volume, in opposition to the reform movement. First edition thus. Printed variously by Gilbert and Rivington, W. Clowes, and Maurice and Co, London. Contemporary half-leather binding in medium brown polished calf, with crisp gilt-stamped rules to the hubbed spine, the spine with a green morocco title label. Tiny amount of chipping to the spine head, unbumped tail, and with rather sharp if lightly abraded corners. The hardboards in marbled brown paper with scuffing front and back. In the main a clean and presentable binding. Hinges feel strong and text block firmly bound in. 8.5 x 5.25 inches. With dark brown paper pastedowns and FEPs. ]1], 80, 46, 36, 16 and [1] numbered pages. The first blank FEP with the blindstamp of Castle Newe, Strathdon, Aberdeenshire, Scotland. Handsome 20th century B&W bookplate of the American character actor Edward Everett Horton to the front pastedown. Observations, &c., with contemporary inscription at top "Written by Mr. Croker 1831." This is perhaps conservative politician John Wilson Croker, opponent of reform. Letter to Lord John Russell inscribed "From the Author" at top of title-page (slightly shaved). Professional repair to horizontal tear at pp. 79-80, and pp. 14-15 of The King with a small amount of underlining and marginal wavy lines in black ink. Else a very clean copy and still rather tight. A Very Good Minus copy. Extremely scarce in any condition. "The Representation of the People Act 1832 was an Act of Parliament which introduced wide-ranging changes to the electoral system of England and Wales. There had been calls for reform long before 1832, but without success. The Act which finally succeeded was proposed by the Whigs, led by the Prime Minister Charles Grey, 2nd Earl Grey. It met with significant opposition from the Pittite factions in Parliament which had long governed the country; opposition was especially pronounced in the House of Lords. Nevertheless the bill was eventually passed, mainly due to public pressure." The content of the essays might strike the modern reader as reactionary rhetoric imbued here and there with Jesuitical cleverness. The tone might variously appear paternalistic, pompous, tedious, hyperbolic or alarmist. Pretending to make an argument from reason, the essays for the most part put on display the umbrage of the powerful and privileged at the notion of ceding any of their electoral or franchise authority. Regarding the second essay, John Russell [b. 17 August 1792 d. 28 May 1878] was the third son of the sixth Duke of Bedford. On 1 March 1831, Lord John Russell brought forward the Reform Bill [first of three] in the House of Commons on the government's behalf.
