Item Description: Printed for the Subscribers, Oxford, 1897. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. First Edition. Oxford: Printed for the Subscribers, 1897. First edition. [iv],586pp. Portrait frontispiece. Subscribers' list. §No limitation stated, but one of an edition of one hundred copies only. §Uranian association copy. Front pastedown bears the contemporary bookplate of the Rev. Lancelot Ridley Phelps - fellow of Oriel College, and Vice-Principal of St. Mary Hall, Oxford 1889-1893 - and his ink ownership name appears on recto of front free endpaper, dated 1897 (above that of Roger Mynors, dated 1938, the classical scholar). Loosely inserted is an A.L.S. to Phelps from one J.D.H.(?) (possibly Holland), on Christ Church note-paper. This letter - written in a crabbed hand on one side of a 7.5" x 6" sheet, folded - reads, in part: 'If you look at p. 126. and[?] p. 127 - of Mr. Cory's Letters, you will understand how I value the memory of them for aye. [New paragraph] "Just come to me" [possibly "Lust came to me"] etc refers to pretty Maynard'. Maynard and Holland remain unidentified. The quotation is not to be found on either page 126 or 127, and does not seem to appear in the book. It perhaps originates in one of Cory's poems, but has not been discovered in the various versions of Ionica examined. Phelps 'died, unmarried, at his home, 24 Norham Road, Oxford, on 16 December 1936. As a tutor of the college, Phelps was responsible for the general supervision of one third of its undergraduates, and he was the friend of many more. He talked with them late into the night; he took them on reading parties to High Force, on the Tees; he kept up a lifelong correspondence with many of them", ODNB. Original olive cloth boards, top edge gilt, lately professionally rebacked in black calf with contrasting olive label, gilt lettering and decoration, original green endpapers preserved. A very good copy. Bookseller Inventory # 209244

Item Description: Printed and Sold by H. Fenwick, No. 20 Newgate Street, London, 1776. Hardcover. Book Condition: Good. First Edition. London: Printed and Sold by H. Fenwick, No. 20 Newgate Street, NO DATE but c.1775-77. 12mo. 156pp. With engraved frontispiece depicting Claude Duval robbing Squire Roper in Windsor Forest. §The printer Henry Fenwick operated from various different addresses in the locale from the early 1760s until possibly 1782, including both No. 20 and No. 89 Newgate Street. Maxted identifies him as working from a Cheapside address in 1774-75. He published 'The Lives of Noted Highwaymen', (100pp., 8vo) from a Snow Hill address at around the same period (ESTC tentatively dates it as 1775); this was a reprint of The History of Notorious Highwaymen (London: J. Lever, London Wall, no date but probably 1765-70. Also 100pp.) - both are rare. §The volume offered can be dated with confidence to the late 1770s and is UNRECORDED: No copies held. §A cheap production, on low grade paper stock, with scattered textual browning. A few leaves closely cropped, touching letters at outer margin. §SLIGHTLY DEFECTIVE (see illustrations) with loss to edge of four leaves at edges. Leaves F, L, and N3 have natural paper flaws, resulting in small loss to the lower corner of N3 clear of text; indistinct printing of a few letters to recto of L at upper corner; and (more seriously) a printing flaw to F, with short accompanying tear, where the leaf seems to have been creased during the printing process. D2 has small loss of text to outer margin, which could be a paper flaw but equally the result of a small piece being torn away by a reader. In other respects a very good copy, neatly rebound sometime in the last century in quarter calf, gilt lettering, marbled paper boards. No ownership names or inscriptions. RARE.
