About this Item: London: J Harris and Son. Hardcover. Condition: Good. 12mo. First edition 1823. Translated from the French of M Lambert. Pp vii [1] 133 with a frontis. Quarter maroon roan, gilt bands and title, marbled bds. Frontis has been partially hand coloured, a bit messily, and 2 pages have a few paint strokes in a light blue wash. About a third of the marbled paper is missing from the front bd and the free end papers have been removed. The book is firm but worn, and in just about Good condition. This is a very scarce title. The book was obviously published to try to cash in on the success of Mrs Sherwood's best-selling Little Henry and His Bearer, first published by Houlston's of Wellington in 1814. By the time Mme Lambert's book appeared in 1823 Mrs Sherwood's book was in its 20th edition. The tactic did not work as this was the only edition. Not in Osborne and only the BL copy on Copac.

About this Item: Tho. Worrall, London., 1729. First U.K. edition. Translated by William Hatchett. 12mo. pp xii, 155. Fine contemporary binding of full red morocco with elaborate gilt floral decoration, sensitively rebacked to style and with similarly skillful work to the corners. All edges gilt. Marbled endpapers. The author was a leading literary salonnière with great influence in the circles of the Académie Française. The present work owes much to the maxims of Fénelon. A random example: ''Remember, your Defects will be more easily forgiven, than the Affectation of a Virtue, that you are not Master of.''Early ownership signature on first blank. Some rubbing to edges of covers. Very good indeed. Scarce. Seller Inventory # DELAMBER021590
