Book Description 4to, vii, 29, 18 [2]p. : ill. ; 30 cm., Liverpool : Printed by J. McCreery, Houghton Street, and sold by Cadell and Davies, London, 1803, 1803. Illustrated with wood engravings by Henry Hole after John Thurston.Title-page a bit dusty. Modern quarter buckram with gilt spine titling, Cockerell marbled paper-covered boards. A very good copy indeed. A remarkable piece of fine printing, done with the types of William Martin (brother to Robert Martin, apprentice to John Baskerville). In the introduction, mention is not only made of the type and wood-engravings, but of the long and troblesome time making up an ink of "richness and warmth of colouring". Bigmore & Wyman are effusive in their praise. Seller Inventory # 11449

Book Description Liverpool: printed by J. M'Creery Houghton-Street. And sold by Cadell and Davies Strand London, 1803. 4to, pp. [iv], vii, [iii], 29, [1] blank, 18, [2] descriptive references to the engravings; with the frontispiece bound immediately before the first page of text instead of opposite the title page; some foxing (as usual) but withal a very good, clean copy in later 19th century half morocco, spine gilt. First edition of this poem by John McCreery (1768-1832). It is dedicated to William Roscoe and commences with an address to the ghost of Johann Gutenberg; it is finely printed with Baskerville press types designed by William Martin, and illustrated by Henry Hole. McCreery went to London shortly afterwards, where he met Dibdin and printed his Bibliomania (1809). A second part was published many years later (1827) and is sometimes found with it, suggesting that copies of the original were still available some 24 years later. Jackson p. 273; Johnson, Provincial Poetry, 565; Updike II 124; Bigmore & Wyman 8. Seller Inventory # 19312
