Description:

4to. (293 mm.) pp. XI, [1], 152. With 30 plates including collotypes of Barclay's Stonehenge paintings, 2 scale ground plans of Stonehenge (in color), 3 scale diagrams in the rear (2 of which are fold-outs), and various other illustrations and drawings. 18 illustrations also accompany the text. Chapter head and tail pieces display mythological motifs. Re-bound / re-backed preserving original maroon cloth boards and spine. (Boards are well rubbed and discolored; corners are bumped). Bookplate on inside front cover; Inner hinges neatly reinforced; light foxing to verso of end-leaves. Pages are generally clean with occasional mild marginal spotting. Bare remnants of colored pencil marks in margins of several pages - almost invisible. Plates for pp.16-17 bound between pp.24-25. Top edge gilt. Edgar Barclay (1842-1913) British landscape artist, traveler and author. Barclay's Stonehenge book includes chapter discussions on the description and antiquity of Stonehenge; on theories and the Amesbury Massacre; on worship at Stonehenge; and on ancient seasonal customs. Barclay wrongly theorized that Stonehenge was built by the Celts of Roman times. However according to the "Classical Review" (Vol.10 #1, 1896) "His plans and illustrations form a convenient and useful collection which probably exists nowhere else between the covers of one book…" A bibliography is included at the end with notes on various authors who have written about Stonehenge from the Middle Ages to the late 19th century (in chronological order). These notes provide a good overview of both the somber and the outlandish theories concerning this ancient monument. Bookseller Inventory #

Book Description London: D Nutt: First edition, 1895. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. 4to., xii, 152pp., with 30 plates including collotypes of Barclay's Stonehenge paintings, 2 scale ground plans of Stonehenge (in colour), 3 scale diagrams in the rear (2 of which are fold-outs), and various other illustrations and drawings; 18 illustrations also accompany the text. with chapter head and tail pieces display mythological motifs, annotated bibliography, top edges gilt, bound in the original cloth with spine titled in gilt. A near fine, clean tightly bound copy of this scarce work. Edgar Barclay was born in 1842 and died sometime during or after 1913, was something of a polymath. His distinguished and prolific career as a painter of genre scenes and landscapes and as an etcher began with studies at Dresden, with Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld until 1861. He continued his studies in Rome, and, from the late 1860s, divided his time between London and Italy. In Rome, he became friendly with Giovanni Costa in 1874 and exhibited with him in that year at the Cincio Casino. He also belonged to a circle of English painters known as 'The Etruscans', who specialised in Italian landscapes. Barclay returned to England for good during the 1880s, and devoted himself to lyrical treatments of rural subjects in Wessex, especially Hampshire and Dorset. A member both of the Royal Society of Painter-Etchers and Engravers, and of the Royal Institute of Oil-Painters, Barclay exhibited extensively. Reproductions of thirteen of his works grace the pages of 'Stonehenge and its Earth-Works.'. Bookseller Inventory # 3633
