About this Item

4to. cloth spine with paper-covered boards with two paper labels on front board. variously paginated. Two runs of early nineteenth-century periodical bound together. #1-62 ; #1-45 issues. The first is the well-known Figaro in London , with a title page Volume 1 for the year 1832. No.1 is dated Saturday, December 10, 1831, followed by a complete run through No.62 dated Saturday, February 9, 1832 (which should be 1833). No.61 is correctly dated as Saturday, February 2, 1833. (Union List of Serials, 1558).There is no title page for Volume 2, although the run certainly goes well into it. Figaro in London was published by William Strange, edited by Gilbert á Beckett and illustrated by Robert Seymour. Strange was a bookseller in London who carried many of the popular papers of the day. á Beckett went on to greater fame as one of the editors of Punch, of which Figaro in London was a precursor. Seymour, gifted illustrator and caricaturist, was well known. He committed suicide while illustrating the Pickwick Papers. This is a complete run of The Literary Guardian and Spectator of Books, Science , Fine Arts, Etc. (Union List of Serials, 2438). They have been bound somewhat in reverse. #28-45 precede #1-27 . The publisher was William Tindall. It may be noted that this paper could be purchased weekly at William Strange's bookshop. There are few illustrations, mostly those of a scientific nature. Per OCLC, while a number of libraries have The Literary Guardian on microfiche, very few have actual copies. The spine cloth is separating, some of the signatures have come loose, and the boards are very worn. The pages are surprisingly good, although some of them are tattered at the edges. cloth spine with paper-covered boards with two paper labels on front board. Bookseller Inventory # 88268
