The Cabinet-Maker's Guide; or, rules and instructions: SIDDONS (G. A.)

"The rapid sale of Four Editions of this work has induced the Editor to offer to the public a Fifth which, from the many important additions made, he trusts will now form a complete pocket companion for the Cabinet Maker, as well as a necessary and useful addition to his tool- chest: and though the price is somewhat enhanced, from the plates and extra matter contained in it, still that will not be found, on a comparison with the former work, to be such as will put it out of the workman's power to avail himself of the benefits a book of general reference like the present is calculated to afford."—Advertisement.

About this Item: Printed for Knight and Lacey, Paternoster-Row, and Westley and Tyrrell, London / Dublin, 1825. Printed paper covered boards. xii, 95 pp., [1]. Printed by T. C. Hansard. The first known edition of this book was published in 1809, though it was then only 36 pages and the author identified as Peter Weber. A later edition, only slightly expanded, was published in 1818, and the author was identified as Thomas Howard. This new edition was greatly enlarged and published in 1825 (there was also a longer edition published in 1825 by a different publisher). The author is identified in later editions as G. A. Siddons. The edition offered here is the basis for the first American edition by Ansel Phelps published the same year as well as the source of all later editions into the 20th century. Robert Mussey, in his introduction to a reprint of the 1827 American edition, points out that this work contains the first mention of French polishing and of glass-paper (sandpaper). Hundreds of thousands of copies were printed in the fourteen known and over seventy pirated editions. "Students of furniture and finishing history should find this an invaluable source for the interpretation of our antique furniture heritage." Advertisements on back cover. Scarce. OCLC shows only 5 copies of this edition. Spine repaired with binder's tape, boards rubbed with a few chips at the edges, a few scuff marks, one affecting the word 'wood' on the front board and one affecting a few letters of the advertisements on the rear board, front endpapers soiled, fly leaf torn and split from gutter, small chips to top edge of a1 and a2 probably from opening roughly, some staining to last page of index and blank, occasional finger soiling, but overall remarkably clean, crisp, and tight, and even scarcer thus as most copies and manuals of this nature usually disintegrated from use. A new edition with considerable additions; including an appendix, containing several valuable tables. Seller Inventory # 27215

About this Item: Greenfield, Ma. 1825., 1825. 108pp. Publisher's ads on rear board. 16mo. Original cloth-backed printed boards. Boards and front free endpaper detached, but present. Formerly the copy of the National Academy of Design Library, with a small shelf mark on the spine and a library notice on the front pastedown. Internally clean. A good copy, entirely unsophisticated. Untrimmed. Samuel F.B. Morse's copy of the first American printing of the first American furniture finisher's manual, reprinted from the original British edition by G.A. Siddons. "A new edition, with considerable additions. Including an appendix containing several valuable tables." Clear and concise instructions are given for dying and staining woods, making glue, making and applying varnish, polishing, japanning, cleaning woods and metals, and much more. For example, to make furniture oil: "Take linseed oil, put it in a glazed pipkin, with as much alkanet root as it will cover; let it boil gently, and you will find it become of a strong red color: let it cool, and it will be fit for use." Six tables in the appendix provide assistance for figuring lengths and weights, and an index follows. The top edge of the front cover bears the ink ownership signature of Samuel F.B. Morse, written "S.F.B. Morse." This copy emanates from the library of Morse's National Academy of Design. Established in New York City the same year this book was published, the National Academy of Design was formed by Morse, Thomas Cole, Rembrandt Peale, Ithiel Town, Asher Durand, and others, as the first American arts institution conceived with artists and architects at its core. The mission of the Academy was "to promote the fine arts in America through instruction and exhibition." Morse served as president of the Academy from 1826 to 1845 and again from 1861 to 1862. Western Massachusetts was obviously a place of great architectural and design innovation during the American federal period as both the present title and Asher Benjamin's landmark architecture book, THE COUNTRY BUILDER'S ASSISTANT., were printed in Greenfield. Not in AMERICAN IMPRINTS, and only nine copies in OCLC. Rare and desirable, especially with such an outstanding and distinguished association to the arts in 19th century America. RINK 1793. OCLC 21296631, 8735793, 6440070. Seller Inventory # WRCAM 52230

A Treatise of Japaning and Varnishing, Being: STALKER, John; and

About this Item: Printed for and sold by the Authors, Oxford, 1688. Folio. (14 1/4 x 9 inches). [8], 84pp. 24 engraved plates. (Old repair at lower edge of one plate, minor age toning). Expertly bound to style in period calf, covers bordered with a gilt double fillet, spine with raised bands in six compartments, red morocco lettering piece in the second, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt Very rare complete copy of an early English pattern book of Oriental designs. This pattern book for decorating furniture and "smalls" contains a comprehensive account of lacquering techniques of the period and a suite of twenty-four plates by an anonymous artist, engraved with over sixty designs of flowers, birds, insects, and landscapes in the Oriental manner. The work was an important source book for early ceramic designs, particularly Viennese porcelain, and includes a comprehensive account of the techniques to be employed in japaning, gilding, burnishing, the production of glass-prints, varnishing and various trompe-l'oeil techniques amongst others. "We have laid before you an Art very much admired by us, and all those who hold any commerce with the Inhabitants of Japan; but that Island not being able to furnish these parts with work of this kind, the English and the Frenchmen have endeavored to imitate them, that by these means the Nobility and Gentry might be compleatly furnisht with whole Setts of Japan-work, whereas otherwise they were forc't to content themselves with perhaps a Screen, a Dressing box, or Drinking-bowl, or some odd thing that had not a fellow to answer it: but now you may be stockt with entire Furniture, Tables, Stands, Boxes and Looking-glass-frames, of one make and design, or what fashion you please; and if done by able hands, it may come so near the true Japan, in fineness of Black, and neatness of Draught, that no one by an Artist should be able to distinguish 'em" (Epistle to the Reader and Practicioner). Three variants are recorded without priority, each with slightly varying imprints and some without Parker's name on the title: this issue with Parker's name and both the Parker and Stalker imprints. The work is rare and copies are frequently incomplete owing to the common practice of removing such patterns for use as transfers. A fine copy with all plates present.
