1 Answers to Mr. Macaulay's Criticism in The Edinburgh Review on Mr. Croker's Edition of Boswell's Life of Johnson. Selected from Blackwood's Magazine. Second Edition.
John Murray Albemarle Street, London 1856 Soft cover Fair Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
A 16-page pamphlet version of an article formerly published in Blackwood's Magazine. Sewn binding at the spine. Macaulay's criticism of Croker's edition of Boswell's Life of Johnson sparked a bitter feud between the two men. From the Prefaratory note inside the front cover: 'The republication, in a cheap form, for railway reading, of Mr. Macaulay's bitter and unjust article on Mr. Croker's edition of Boswell's Life of Johnson, has induced Mr. Murray to issue in a cheap form a series of replies to the assertions and criticism of that article.' Worn and torn; there is a tear, approx one inch, in the foredge of every page and another tear to the top edge of the front cover / title page. 307703

16 Camberwick Green Nursery Rhymes No 3
Adby, Pete (illustrated by) Dean & Son, Ltd London 1969 0603015166 / 9780603015168 Hardcover Good No Jacket Book 4to - over 9 - 12" tall 
Glazed pictorial boards. A very nice clean copy of this scarce Camberwick Green book. Pages all clean, though browned at the edges. The sewn binding is in really good condition. The only two flaws are that Paddy Murphy's eyes on the front pastedown illustration have been coloured in and the rear pastedown illustration has been torn, with about an inch missing from the bottom of the picture. Considering that it is usually the binding that becomes weak with these picture books I would still classify it as a near VG copy. Published around the same time as Chigley was first aired on TV (Camberwick Green was first shown in 1966). Unpaginated. Slim children's picture book. 102045

2 Breviarium Romanum Ex Decreto Sacrosancti Concilii Tridentini restitutum, B. PII V. Pontificis Maximi Jussu Editum, Clementis VIII. & Urbani VIII. Auctoritate recognitum; In Quatuor Anni Tempora divisum. Pars Hiemalis.
Sumptibus Pauli Balleonii Venetiis 1707 Leather Bound Fair Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
Breviarium Romanum 1707. The binding is in good condition but with some historic worming holes to the pastedowns and, to a lesser extent, endpapers. Worming is not invasive but there are some holes to a block of text towards the back of the book, approx. p. cxlx onwards - a small single hole to the first few pages, then a double hole; pages clxxxi-ccxviii have a slightly larger hole which partly obscures letters in the last two lines of text. There is a long repaired tear to page 225/226 - this is quite neat; there is a small amount of loss to the words in the bottom margin corner, affecting the bottom two lines of text. A few other minor repairs to pages. Four engraved illustrations including frontispiece. Black and red text in two columns on the page. Some pages are loose and a number of others are loosening. This copy would benefit from some careful restoration. Page edges marbled. pp. [16], 624, ccxliv. 24cm. Ribbon page marker is present but fragile. A HEAVY book - a postage surcharge will apply to delivery destinations outside the UK as this book costs more to send than our standard postage rate will cover. NO additional charges for sending within the UK. 309094
