About this Item

Copy has very minor rubbing of surface on cover near the edges, beautifully penned name inside front cover. Poem - there were a number of Tours of Dr. Syntax, this one is a poem on the search for consolation. Illustrated with 24 unusual plates by Thomas Rowlandson, they appear to be tinted drawings that depict a certain realism in the settings, but have a unique and somewhat strange style in depicting the characters. Very interesting and charming. The introduction by the author is dated 1820. vi/264pp with 4 pages of listing for other publications by Methuen & Co. Desirable!. Bookseller Inventory # 000978

Store Description

I do not have a brick and mortar storefront, listing from home utilizing HomeBase - Nearly all of the books listed are only available single copy, some are new/as new - most are fine or very good - Many unusual/ Collectible/Signed - First Editions/1st printing when possible. I have been a lover and collector of books since early childhood, participating in Metaphysical and Art Bookstore during the 1970's in San Francisco, Ca., Hence, many of the Spiritual, Art and Fantasy/Science Fiction - unusual books are from my private library collection. Art, Beauty, Film, Higher Knowledge - and books that inspire - these continue to come my way and I would love to make them available to others.
