About this Item

An exemplar of an early and important English gift book series, one Faxon describes as "The first attempt to rival the numerous and elegant publications of the continent," in only its sixth annual appearance. This volume includes pieces by Mary Russell Mitford, Letitia Elizabeth Landon, and Felicia Hemans, among others. It is illustrated with a total of => 14 engraved plates, including the beautiful embossed presentation leaf here in unused state. Several engravers, including E. Finden, S. Davenport, and A.W. Warren, modeled their work after various artists. Binding: Publisher's glazed green paper?covered boards, pictorially printed in black, all edges gilt. Housed in publisher's cardboard slipcase with green glazed paper sides pictorially printed in black. Owner's modification: The word "Pax" is neatly printed in black ink on the book's back cover, gently arced above the engraving; and "Roosevelt" has been similarly added to the back of the slipcase, with "Post Lux Tenebras" being artfully placed below the engraving. 12mo (14.4 cm, 5.75"). Engr. presentation leaf, engr. frontis., x, 418, 4 (advertisements) pp.; 14 plts. including presentation leaf and frontis. Faxon 1303. Binding as above, back inside cover with brown silk pull-tab intact, joints very skillfully refurbished with long fiber and then toned; extremities gently rubbed. Front free endpaper pencilled with old bookseller annotations. Pages and plates generally clean with very occasional light foxing; guard leaves with predictable offsetting. Case somewhat rubbed with extremities chipped at corners but completely sound and with the described embellishments. => A lovely little gift book, with the original (and early for its kind) slipcase.
