About this Item: Richard Bentley 1840 & 1842, London, 1840. The very rare private issue of the first two volumes of Barham's most successful work, specially printed on heavier cream-toned paper, with the special limitation leaf, numbered and signed by Richard Bentley in the first volume. Plates and illustrations are by Leech, Cruikshank, and Buss. This copy is denoted copy #1 in ink, but a trace of an erasure suggests it may have been denoted #12, and then corrected at some point. The ownership signature of the author's son, R.H.D. Barham, who edited the third volume in 1847, appears on the half-title of the second volume. No private issue of the third volume was prepared. The rather complex bibliography of this private issue, as well as that of the public issue, is discussed at length by Sadleir in the context of his entries for the copies in his collection, pp. 27? 29. He owned copy #8 (the publisher's copy) of the private edition of the first volume, but lacked the second volume in this form. He had knowledge of only two other copies, Barham's own copy (later Owen Young's) at the NYPL, and a catalogue reference to a copy from the collection of D. Phoenix Ingraham, sold in "February 1836 [sic, i.e. 1936]." This copy of the first volume, like Sadleir's and the others, has on p. 236 the incomplete printing of "The Franklyn's Dogge." Sadleir's analysis suggested to him the following probable sequence: a) the private edition, b) copies of the public edition with p. 236 in the same form as it appears in the private edition, c) copies of the public edition with p. 236 blank; and d) copies of the public edition with the complete new version of the text on p. 236. The set in hand raises a new question in regard to the form of the binding of the private edition in its original state. Sadleir's copy, like the copy he located at NYPL, was bound in "Full brown Russia," with the title, imprint, and date on the spine, and the title on the upper board, and he describes that binding as "original." The binding described by Carter in reference to the twelve private copies is also in accord with Sadleir's description. However, the remnants of the binding preserved at the back of the present first volume ? see below ? are red moir? silk (as opposed to the brown cloth of the public edition), with the side panels and spine ornately blocked with a gilt design and the title within the gilt frame (the spine is rather worn, but legible). This suggests that only some of the twelve private copies were bound in leather, and others, or at least one, were bound in this special silk cloth, gilt extra. Binding: Full claret crushed levant, gilt extra, all edges gilt, by Riviere, with the side panels and spine of the original binding of the first volume bound at the end. Barham began writing the short pieces making up this series as contributions to his friend and classmate's Bentley's Miscellany. The subject matter was "at first derived from the legendary lore of the author's ancestral locality in Kent, but soon [was] enriched by satires on the topics of the day and subjects of pure invention, or borrowed from history or the ?Acta Sanctorum'. . . . The success of the ?Legends' was pronounced from the first, and when published collectively in 1840 they at once took the high place in humorous literature which they have ever since retained" (DNB). Provenance: With R.H.D. Barham's signature as noted above, and with the armorial bookplate of Sir David Lionel Salomons (1851?1925) in each volume. 8vo. 2 vols. I: [6], v, [3], 338, [2] pp. with inserted extra-engraved title (a proof before letters), numbered colophon leaf, engraved title, and six etched plates; II: vii, [3], 288 pp. with engraved title and seven etched plates. NCBEL, III, 365; Sadleir 156a; Tinker 216 (public edition); Carter, Binding Variants, p.92. Bindings a bit darkened and slightly discolored at extremities, light rubbing to joints, some foxing to the prelims of the first volume, with an old tide-mark in the lower gutter areas of the plates; a tipped-in.

Wide turn-ins with triple fillets. Gilt rolled edges. Gilt ornamented raised bands. Gilt framed and ornamented compartments. All edges gilt. Pink marbled endpapers. A fine set, handsomely bound.The exquisite multi-color leather inlays on the front cover of each volume depict as follows:First Series: The Great Lord Cardinal. From the Jackdaw of Rheims (opposite page 221)"Then the great Lord Cardinal call'd for his book,And off that terrible curse he took; The mute expression Served in lieu of confession,And, being thus coupled with full restitution,The Jackdaw got plenary absolution."Second Series: Shylock. From The Merchant of Venice (opposite page 45)"I believe there are fewBut have heard of a Jew,Named Shylock, of Venice, as arrant a "Screw"In money transactions, as ever you knew;An exorbitant miser, who never yet lentA Ducat at less than three hundred per cent."Third Series: Sir Christopher Hatton. From The House-Warming, A Legend of Bleeding-Heart Yard (opposite page 292)"The fact is, Sir Christopher, early in life,As all bachelors should do, had taken a wife,A Fanshawe by family, ---one of a houseWell descended, but boasting less "nobles" than nous?"George Bayntun [1873-1940] served an apprenticeship with the Taylor family, before starting his own bookbinding business in 1894. He took on London binders to raise the standard of craftsmanship and soon moved into larger premises on Walcot Street. It was recognized that 'He has brought intelligence into play as well as high craftsmanship." In 1939 the Bayntun and Rivière & Son binderies were incorporated into a new set of premises on Manvers Street (Bath), in which the business still exists today."George Bayntun adhered to traditional book binding techniques: 'We work in the old way. Machine binding? Ah yes.but not for us.' He had an especially good relationship with many pre-eminent American dealers, and Arthur Brenanto, Maurice Inman, Nat Ladden and Dr Rosenbach hosted a lunch in his honour on a visit to New York in 1936."George Bayntun died at the age of 67 in 1940, having built a world famous business. George Bayntun's last years were crowned by the frequent patronage of Queen Mary, who spent the war years near Bath. She granted the firm the appointment of Bookseller to Her Majesty in 1950" (Wiki).Richard Barham's famous series of often-macabre (and often non-politically-correct!) parodies of myths, legends and ghost stories, many in verse - illustrated with plates by George Cruikshank and John Leech. These pieces began appearing in Bentley's Miscellany in 1837 (at about the time Oliver Twist was appearing there), and were immensely popular with that journal's readers -- so much so that they were subsequently collected in these three separately-published volumes. Though Barham's work is largely forgotten today, we do have several hold-overs from it - such as the tale from which Walt Disney devised "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," and the earliest published version of the children's poem about the dog "Bingo" ?and Bingo was his name-O".

Limited to 560 numbered copies, "of which 500 are for sale in England and 50 in America," signed by the artist. This copy is No. 241 of the English edition. Large quarto (11 x 8 5/8 in; 284 x 220 mm). xix, [1], 549, [1] pp. Twenty-four color plates mounted on dark olive paper, with descriptive tissue guards (except for the frontispiece), twelve plates tinted but not mounted, and sixty-six drawings in black and white in the text (full-page). Title printed in red and brown within a decorative tinted border.This is the finest Rackham-illustrated edition of The Ingoldsby Legends with additional color illustrations, improved color illustrations, large-paper format, and reworked pen and ink drawings not found in the edition of 1898. Bound c. early 1970s by Chris Lewis (stamp-signed) in full red morocco.

Gilt rolled edges. Heavily gilt dentelles. All edges gilt. A fresh, crisp and very fine copy. Housed in a later custom drop-back clamshell box.The Ingoldsby Legends were first printed during 1837 as a regular series of Richard Bentley's magazine, Bentley's Miscellany, and later in New Monthly Magazine. The legends were illustrated by John Leech and George Cruikshank. They proved immensely popular and were compiled into books published during 1840, 1842 and 1847 by Richard Bentley. They remained popular during the 19th century. The illustrations for this volume proved a turning point in Rackham's life. "In 1898, which was to be a watershed year for Rackham, Dent invited him to produce one hundred black and white illustrations for R.H. Barham's quaintly medievalizing poems and stories The Ingoldsby Legends of Mirth and Marvels. The £150 fee for this important commission bought, in addition, ownership of the originals and copyright.?[The] episodic nature and superficial, rollicking humour [of the tales] were well suited to Rackham's talents, presenting him with endless opportunities to exercise his talent for the macabre and the inventive, the fantastic and the knockabout comic" (Hamilton, Arthur Rackham. A Biography, p. 49).The great Christopher Lewis began his career at the internationally renowned Bayntun-Riviere Bindery of Bath, England, during the early 1960s as a finisher. In the 1970s, he established his own bindery and further developed his masterful inlay and gilt work.Lattimore and Haskell p. 30-31. Seller Inventory # 01952

Contemporary art nouveau-style "vellucent" binding by Cedric Chivers of Bath in green morocco, spine and front cover lettered and tooled in gilt, hand-painted vellum vignette of Franciscan monk and crow to front cover, turn-ins ruled in gilt, green marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Spine and edges of covers faded to brown, rubbing to joints, 50 mm tear to pp. 477/8, some pages unopened. An excellent copy. Colour frontispiece and 23 colour plates tipped-in on dark green paper, 12 tinted plates on plain paper, illustrations in the text. First revised edition, first impression, of Rackham's illustrated edition of The Ingoldsby Legends, containing drawings not found in earlier editions. Rackham's illustrated edition of The Ingoldsby Legends was originally published in 1898 but Rackham chose to expand the work and redraw the illustrations so that "greater prominence could be given to the illustrations by better and larger reproductions, including a greater number of illustrations in colour" (Rackham's Prefatory Note). The binding is a good example of Chivers's vellucent technique, which he developed in the early 1900s. In contrast to the earlier method used by Edwards of Halifax, the painting was not done on the underside of the transparent vellum, but on paper which was attached to the binding and covered with vellum. The surface of the vellum was then tooled in gold, enhancing the impressive effect. Latimore & Haskell p. 11; Riall p. 26. Seller Inventory # 123254

About this Item: London: J.M. Dent & Co., 1907, 1907. One of 560 Copies Signed by Arthur RackhamBound by Zaehnsdorf for E. Joseph[RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. [BARHAM, Richard Harris]. The Ingoldsby Legends or Mirth & Marvels. By Thomas Ingoldsby Esquire. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham A.R.W.S. London: J.M. Dent & Co., 1907. Large paper edition. Limited to 560 numbered copies, "of which 500 are for sale in England and 50 in America," signed by the artist. This copy is No. 405 of the English edition. Large quarto (11 1/8 x 8 7/8 inches; 284 x 226 mm.). xix, [1, blank], 549, [3, blank] pp. Twenty-four color plates mounted on dark olive paper, with descriptive tissue guards (except for the frontispiece), twelve plates tinted but not mounted, and sixty-six drawings in black and white in the text ( full-page). With the printing flaw to the tinted plate facing p. 254 (it is on coated paper, is uncaptioned, and has offsetting from the text to the image). Title printed in red and brown within a decorative tinted border. A few leaves with light , mainly marginal foxing and or browning. An excellent copy.Bound ca. 1985 by Zaehnsdorf for E. Joseph (stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in) in full dark green crushed levant morocco. Covers ruled in gilt, front cover pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt to match the original 1907 cover design, spine paneled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt-ruled board edges and turn-ins, top edge gilt, others uncut, Cockerel endpapers. "This edition is a reprint of the 1898 edition, with added illustrations and larger pages" (Latimore and Haskell)."In 1898 Messrs. Dent and Co. first published 'The Ingoldsby Legends,' with about one hundred illustrations of mine. This book has met with a very satisfactory reception, but the publisher's have felt with me that, with the addition of new drawings, a careful overhauling would make it worthy of publication in a more important form, in which greater prominence could be given to the illustrations by better and larger reproductions, including a greater number of illustrations in colour."To this end the following has been done:"The frontispiece and the coloured illustration facing page 508 have been specially drawn, and all the other illustrations in colour have been worked on to a considerable extent, and specially coloured for this edition. A few illustrations in the earlier edition have been omitted and in their place have been added those facing page 254 and on pages vi, 25, 37, 316, 320, and 333."Many of the pen drawings have been reconsidered and worked on again - those which have been worked on to any great extent being now signed with both dates, 1898 and 1907. Of the rest, reproductions on a larger scale have been made in all but a few cases, and the text has been revised and entirely reset for this edition' (Rackham, Prefatory Note).Latimore and Haskell, pp. 30-31.
