Dodd's Beauties of Shakespeare: with a General Index

£65.00

Product description

Dodd's Beauties of Shakespeare: with a General Index - The Revd. W. Dodd.

London: For the proprietors of the English classics. 1824. pp 336.

Slipcase in maroon buckram with no markings. Moderately frayed to all edges; thumb guides.

A small book: 155mm x 90mm in paper covered card, quarter bound to spine in pale yellow, probably very thin calf skin. The faces are inconsistently tanned to the colour of toffee and there are many small scratches to both boards. Staining from the thumb guide positions.

The rear face has a 4cm rectangle that looks as though someone has erased something with great vigour - through to the underlying card. Corners and edges in keeping with the age of the book, no remarkable defects. The binding is very good and the paper grade nicely heavy.
"Honi soit qui mal y pense" badge to centre and beneath this the names of a couple of dozen friends who subscribed to the publication: Baynes & son et al.

Lower board bears a listing of English classics available from the printer J.F. Dove, St. John's Square.
End paper signatures of at least three people: the oldest being a dedication to Maud Potter from her friend Matilda Tennyson, 1892. Then from Maud Potter to Hetty Wilson, 1898.
Frontispiece engraving from antiquity; likewise to title page. Another dedication from Matilda, who was evidently displeased with her previous effort.

The rest of the book appears to be unmarked. Top edges planed, others roughcut. Fox spots through the block.
Overall, an engaging provenance to the book, which may well be unread.

Oxfam Bookshop Market Harborough

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller. Oxfam bookshops offer a wider selection of books than most shops, from modern fiction and leisure interest to more specialist subjects, classics, and rare or collectable books. We also stock an attractive range of greetings cards and a good selection of stationery. Come and browse!

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
