Tilt’s Miniature Classical Library

£90.00

Product description

Comprising 9 volumes:
William Cowper Poems, volumes I & II (1840)
James Thomson The Seasons & Castle of Indolence (1836)
The Sacred Harp anthology of religious poetry (1838)
Gems from American Poets, 6th edition (1841)
Gems from British Poets, 4 volumes, 1st & 2nd series, & 2nd edition (1839)
Charles Tilt, London.
Overall measurements of set 190 x 150 mm
Each book: hardback; 70 x 110 mm; varied decorative boards with titles in gold on the spine. The number of pages in each volume varies from 208 to 264 with additional front material and advertisements unpaginated. All edges gilt. No dust jackets.
The general condition of the books is good. The binding is generally sound but in Gems from American Poets there is cracking along the gutter between pages 64 and 65. Similarly in volume I of William Cowper there is cracking between the paste-down front endpaper and the fly title. There is some fading to some of the spines with some bumping. There is some tanning and foxing in places.
These 9 books are housed in a wooden display case which is in very poor condition. The classical pitched roof is separated from the wooden structure underneath. The back is loose. Parts of the black paper covering of the case is missing and the remainder peeling. At one time there may have been a door on the front as there appears to be the remains of a lock on one side although there are no signs of hinges on the other. Internally on the back of the case is a label: “Henningham & Hollis, Booksellers, 5 Mount Street, Grosvenor Sq”.
These books will appeal to collectors of volumes from Tilt’s Miniature Classical Library.
