Item Description: London, Willis and Sotheran, 1856. Large 8vo (24.5 x 15.5 cm). xx, 234 pp., 46 hand-coloured engraved plates. Top edge gilt. Publisher's gilt embossed half leather over marbled boards.= The Index Testaceologicus is renowned for its small yet accurate illustrations of more than 2,500 (!) species, including several described as new. This is a hand-coloured copy of the final edition, edited by Sylvanus Hanley. This is probably the last book on conchology following the Linnaean system. Hanley, however, did include a synopsis of the (modified) Lamarckian system. One of the former owners was Churchill Babington (1821-1889), who taught archaeology at Cambridge. Small repair to top of spine, bookplate on front paste down, small stamp on plate versos not shining through, inscribed by former owners (19th century) on front flyleaf verso, explanation of the abbreviations used by Wood and Hanley on free endpaper. Plates clean, images bright. In all a very good copy. Nissen ZBI, 4459 and 1825c. Bookseller Inventory # 52645

Index Testaceologicus; or A Catalogue of Shells,: Wood, William

Item Description: Richard Taylor 0, London, UK. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Second Edition. With: Supplement to the Index Testaceologicus and A List of the Plates of the "Index Testaceologicus," with the Lamarckian Names Adapted to the Figures in Each Plate. No date. 188pp + supplements. Over 2700 miniature hand-colored engravings were drawn from original specimens in private collections. Originally trained as a surgeon, Wood left the trade to work as a naturalist and wrote several books, this one being his most important. Full leather with gilt rules and blind stamping on both covers, a bit scuffed, edges of boards rubbed. Text is clean and free of markings, several owner and bookseller stamps and signatures to first few pages. With laid in envelope and letter from Mark Cohen of Marks & Co. Booksellers to Mary Helen Dawson dated January 30th, 1953, with additional receipt from bookseller Norman Colbeck. This copy was the gift of Mark Cohen at Marks & Co., Booksellers at 84, Charing Cross Road to Mary Helen Dawson, wife of Glen Dawson, co-owner of Dawson's Book Shop in Los Angeles during the 1940s through the 1990s. Mary Helen was an avid shell collector. In the book 84, Charing Cross Road, the author begins a correspondence with Frank Doel, bookbuyer for the Marks & Co. bookstore in 1949 after being unable to find a US source for the British literature. The correspondence developed into a friendship, with gifts and food parcels being sent overseas to help with the shortages after WWII. The story of the Marks & Co. bookstore with the Dawsons is a nice parallel, with Glen Dawson originally visiting England in the 1930s to learn the book trade and maintaining a close relationship after. As WWII threatened, Marks & Co. sent many of their books to the US for safekeeping, with the understanding that they would be returned or sold. Dawson's was able to sell the books and send large checks back to England. The letter, handwritten on Marks & Co. stationery, attests to this friendship.; Book; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall.
