Description:

Large-Paper Copy"This Issue In Plain Boards Is Most Scarce"[CRUIKSHANK, George, illustrator]. CAREY, David. Life in Paris. Comprising the Rambles, Sprees, and Amours, of Dick Wildfire., of Corinthian Celebrity, and His Bang-Up Companions, Squire Jenkins and Captain O'Shuffleton; With the Whimsical Adventures of the Halibut Family; Including Sketches of a Variety of other eccentric Characters in the French Metropolis. London: Printed for John Fairburn.Sold by Sherwood, Neely, and Jones [et al], 1822. First edition, a Large Paper copy, lacking "To the Binder" leaf at rear. Quarto (10 x 6 1/8 in; 253 x 154 mm). xxiv, 489, [1, blank] pp., untrimmed. Half-title, and twenty-one hand-colored aquatint plates including frontispiece. Twenty-two black and white woodcut text illustrations.Original quarter marbled paper over plain boards, printed spine label (with title and price, "£1, 11s., 6d., Royal Paper"). Boards rubbed and detached, heavy rubbing to backstrip (and label) with loss at spine head: completely untouched. With the bookplate of William Hartmann Woodin tipped-in above early owner's signature "HB [flourish] - Brisco - [flourish]" Housed in a later red cloth chemise within a drop-back clamshell box. "A few copies on large paper were bound from the parts in blue paper boards, with white paper label printed on back [i.e. spine], giving the title and the price ("£1, 11s., 6d., Royal Paper"). This issue in plain boards is most scarce, and I think it antedates copies in the picture boards" (Cohn).Of the sixty-three copies that have come to auction since 1975 only one was a large-paper copy in original boards."Issued in 21 parts paper wrappers on small and large paper and on completion in buff pictorial boards with vignette of the title page repeated on the upper cover, 2 woodcuts on back cover and spine.Some large-paper copies were, however, issued in plain boards [as here], and these in Cohn's opinion antedate the pictorial boards. The Leaf of Directions is frequently missing as was the Suzannet copy in boards" (Tooley).One of the best imitations of Pierce Egan's Life in London, 1821. which had plates by Robert and George Cruikshank, the plates in this work being by George only. The frontispiece or engraved title here is similar in conception to that of Life in London" (Abbey, Travel).William Hartmann Woodin (1868-1934) was one of the foremost book collectors of his era, a major American industrialist, and U.S. Secretary of the Treasury during President Franklin Roosevelt's first term.
