25. Columbus, Christopher; Quaritch, Bernard; Kerney, Michael; Fernández-Armesto, Felipe (introduction);Martin Davies, Martin (essay);Posa, Pere (essay), & Payne, Anthony (editor) (2006). The Spanish Letter of Columbus: A Facsimile of the Original Edition Published by Bernard Quaritch in 1891 (Facsimile ed). London: Bernard Quaritch. 33 pp. Hardback elephant folio, dustjacket, very good plus condition (in very good plus dustjacket), full-page colour photos centre spread, copy 1. Heavy (1.0 Kg), and extra postage may be requested to destinations outside Australia. (Limited facsimile edition of 500 copies.) Subtitle: "With an Introduction by Felipe Fernández-Armesto and essays by Martin Davies on Pere Posa and the printing of the Spanish Columbus Letter at Barcelona in 1493 and by Anthony Payne & Katherine Spears on Quaritch, the Spanish Columbus Letter, and America 1890­1892. Edited by Anthony Payne." Includes a colour facsimile of the original letter in the centre pages. The version of the Columbus Letter that London bookseller Bernard Quaritch bought in 1890 was the most valuable item of printed Americana to ever appear on the market. No other copy of this, the earliest edition - a folio printed in Spanish at Barcelona in 1493 - is known. Quaritch and his assistant Michael Kerney originally published "The Spanish Letter of Columbus" in 1981 (now reprinted), being the first authoritative study of the document. But, as Felipe Fernández-Armesto recounts in his introduction (new to this reprint), it nearly got dismissed as a forgery, in era of many forgeries. Quaritch's Letter did contain some errors ­ most of which were the result of assumptions common at the time or deficiencies of knowledge unremedied until later ­ but did its job effectively. It demonstrated, correctly, that the folio in question was printed at Barcelona in 1493 and that all other known editions of the Columbus Letter followed it. This was a service to his firm and to the Lenox Library (now part of the New York Public Library), which purchased the item. This new edition also includes an account of the printing of the original Spanish Columbus Letter in 1493 and, drawing on materials surviving in the Quaritch Archive, the story of how Quaritch, and his son, Alfred, marketed it in America. ISBN: 0955085225. Our Book No: 15832. $80 AUD.

27. Coveny, Christopher (1883). Twenty Scenes from the Works of Dickens Designed & Etched by Christopher Coveny (1st ed) [Etchings from Dickens by Christopher Coveny]. Sydney: Thos. (Thomas) H. Fielding / Printed by John Sands. 120 pp. Hardback large folio (32.0 x 25.2 cm), original light brown cloth (moire-silk-covered) boards (gilt lettering front cover), original half-bound (dark brown morocco leather spine & corners, with gilt outlining), good plus condition, full-page engravings, new plain endpapers, top edge gilt, faint tide marks edges few pages (previous water contact now dry), cloth cover worn (ring stain on front cover), minor foxing (particularly first & last pages), edgewear. Heavy, and extra postage may be requested to destinations outside Australia. (Limited edition of 219 copies, source National Gallery of Australia.) A scarce book of engravings of scenes from Dickens by an Australian artist, and published in Australia. The etchings depict memorable scenes from his early novels, particularly Pickwick Papers. There are two title pages, one engraved and one letterpress, and an introduction. Interleaved between the engravings are a page with a small text box that include quotations from his novels. Plate 7 is presented in two states (one on India paper). Printing of the etchings was supervised by C. M. Buck. Podeschi H1042. Ferguson 9140A. Christopher John Coveny (1846 - 1941) abandoned his law practice briefly for teaching, but then became an engraver. This is his most famous work. His etchings were similar to those of Phiz - so he did two extra plates (title page & plate 7) to prove his originality (as explained in a preliminary note). His career was short-lived, however, as he suffered a nervous breakdown in 1884. Our Book No: 14834. $400 AUD.

28. Cowper, William; Westall, Richard (illustrator) (1825). The Task [with] Cowper's Minor Poems [with] Table Talk and Other Poems (3 vols).

Volume 3 only: faint stain front cover, gilt spine lettering lightly rubbed. Fine binding. Originally published in 1817, this is the 1825 edition. A handsome set of Cowper's poems printed by the famous printers C. and C. Whittingham of Chiswick, with illustrations by Richard Westall. Charles Whittingham (1767 - 1840) was an English printer. In 1789 he set up a small printing press in a garret off Fleet Street, London, with a loan obtained from the type-founding firm of William Caslon, and, by 1797, his business had so increased that he was enabled to move into larger premises. Whittingham inaugurated the idea of printing cheap, handy editions of standard authors, and, on the bookselling trade threatening not to sell his productions, took a room at a coffee house and sold them by auction himself. In 1809 he started a paper-pulp factory at Chiswick, near London, and in 1811 founded the Chiswick Press. Our Book No: 14787. $150 AUD.
