2 Volume first edition set; Volume I published 12th May 1786. Volume II published 7th June 1788. Uniform volumes. Full tan calf. Spines sympathetically rebacked in matching morocco. Volume II stands just a fraction taller on the shelf than volume I. Spines gilt in imitation compartments, no raised bands, original title panels laid on. Marbled endpapers. Text blocks are clean and bright with only minimal age spotting and discolouration. Plate 7 in volume I has an unevenly trimmed foredge (just the very edge of the page, illustration not affected). In volume II p.62/3 has a torn bottom corner (no text affected, just loss to the margin) and a couple of short marginal tears to p.1/2. v. II has silk ribbon page marker present but unattached. Corners rubbed, exposing board at corners and there are some scuffs to the rear board of v. II. Errors in paging: v. I, 367-368 repeated in numbering (text is different, just numbering repeated); v.

I and 66 in v. II. The engraving is excellent quality. The frontis. of v. II has some sympathetic restoration - two long heavy creases have been reinforced - one on the underside and one in the margin on both sides - with what appears to be a near invisible acid-free tissue repair. 29 x 23cm. These are very good volumes, sympathetically restored, handsome and strong bindings; will add to any collection. Francis Grose [c. 1731-1791] was a renowned English antiquary and militia man, best known for his 1772 Antiquities of England and Wales and also written about by his friend Robert Burns in the poem, Epigram on Francis Grose the Antiquary.

21 Cochrane: The Life and Exploits of a Fighting Captain
Harvey, Robert Constable & Robinson London 2000 1841191620 / 9781841191621 Hardcover Near Fine Near Fine Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall Sadler, Geoff (illustrations) 
Publisher's original blue boards. Both the book and dust jacket are in excellent, near fine condition. Just very slight bruising to the spine ends. Clean, tight and unmarked. No previous owner's names or inscriptions. Dust jacket not price clipped. pp. xix, 332. The life and adventures of the daring seaman Thomas Cochrane, who rose from midshipman to admiral and was called 'the sea wolf' by Napoleon, are so extraordinary that his life reads like a compelling, page-turning work of fiction. In one sense it became so, for the novelist Patrick O'Brian by his own admission took Cochrane's exploits and used them as the basis for Jack Aubrey, the protagonist of his best-selling series of naval novels set during the Napoleonic War. The dust jacket is supplied by us in a loose protective clear archival film sleeve. This does not adhere to the book or jacket in any way and protects the jacket against wear.
