1 Hazlitt, William Sketches of the Principal Picture-Galleries in England (with a Criticism on 'Marriage-a-la-Mode')
London Taylor and Hessey 1824 First Edition Hard Cover 
Newly restored, this item has been quarterbound in calfskin with brilliantly marbled paper over boards. The spine is gold-tooled as is the red leather spine-label. New endpapers. 195pps., plus 5 pages of advertisements in the back. The text is in good condition and -- consistent with its age -- has the sporadic soiling, thumbing, and tearing; it is, nonetheless, whole and bright with very little in the way of foxing. A couple of pages (only) have notations in the margins and the signature of an early owner (of the same dipped pen) is neatly placed in the top corner of the title-page. A scarce item and, now, with repairs, quite presentable. Hazlitt is widely considered one of the great English critics and essayists. He influenced a good many of his contemporaries. As Keats said of him: his work is like 'a whale's back in a sea of prose.' Chapters include: Mr. Angerstein's Collection, Dulwich Gallery, The Marquis of Stafford's Gallery, Pictures at Windsor Castle, Pictures at Hampton Court, Lord Grosvenor's Collection, Pictures at Wilton and Stourhead, Pictures at Burleigh House, and Pictures at Oxford and Blenheim. Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded.
