Cloth, 4to, vii, 424 pp. 517 entries. From the blurb: "The books illustrated by coloured plates and published in England between the years 1790 and 1860 are some of the most beautiful of their kind that the world has ever seen. The names, as artists or publishers, of Rudolph Ackermann, the Maltons, the Daniels, Westall, the Alkens, Pyne, the Cruikshanks, Boydell and Joseph Harrington will be a reminder of the riches, in lithography, aquatint and hand-colouring, to be found in the illustrated books of this short period. The late Mr R. V Tooley has here made a comprehensive collation of all these books, excluding those on Botany and Ornithology. The famous works, such as Ackermann's Repository and Microcosm of London, Boydell's Thames and Pyne's Royal Residencies, are naturally described in full, and particular notice is taken of the points and variations in different issues. Equal care has been given to the collation of more obscure and inexpensive books: Egerton's Fashionable Bores, Gell's Views in Barbary, Edwards's Cynographia Britannica and D'Oyly's Tom Raw, the Griffin may be taken as typical of the less familiar works whose inclusion makes Mr Tooley's book complete. Mr Tooley indeed enjoyed every advantage in compiling the book. As a leading London antiquarian bookseller he had the opportunity of handling personally almost all the coloured plate books about which he writes, sometimes as many as sixty or seventy different copies of a single work. To collectors of coloured plate books, and in particular to all dealers in old and rare books, Mr Tooley's definitive bibliography and collations represent a necessary standard work."
