1997 1859280986 / 9781859280980 Hardcover Fine Octavo (standard book size) 
With a short introductory essay, putting the original writer and their works in an historical context, together with short bibliographical notes. Alice Sutcliffe was married in 1624 (her birth and death dates are not known, nor her exact marriage date) to John Sutcliffe who was Esquire to the Body of James I. He later became Groom of His Majesty?s Most Honourable Privy Chamber at the Court of Charles I and it is suggested by some of her writings that Alice also had a role at Court. Meditations of Man?s Mortalitie consists of six prose meditations followed by a long poem of eighty-eight six-line stanzas on ?our losse by Adam, and our gayne by Christ?. It was dedicated to some of the most influential members of the Court, suggesting perhaps Alice?s desire to promote both herself and her husband. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 264 pages.

1997 1859280927 / 9781859280928 Hardcover Fine Octavo (standard book size) 
With a short introductory essay, putting the original writer and their works in an historical context, together with short bibliographical notes. Anne Askew (1521-1546) was accused of heresy because of her denial of the Catholic doctrine of transubstantiation and ritual of mass. These two works provide an extremely rare autobiographical account of heresy interrogations, torture, trial and conviction. Her manuscripts were smuggled out of England to John Bale on the Continent who edited and published them in 1545 and 1546 respectively. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 288 pages.

Scolar Press
1997 1859281001 / 9781859281000 Hardcover Fine Octavo (standard book size) 
With a short introductory essay, putting the original writer and their works in an historical context, together with short bibliographical notes. The only reliable clues available about Anne Wheathill?s life are those contained in her work, published in 1584. She describes herself as a gentlewoman, unmarried and a Protestant. She also refers to herself as poor and it has been suggested that she was one of a handful of women in Elizabeth I?s reign who attempted to earn money by writing. A handfull of holesome (though homelie) hearbs is an example of the English Reformer?s efforts to revise the Roman Catholic primers and Books of Hours to satisfy the private devotional needs of a Protestant middle class. Although Anne Wheathill apologises for her inexperience and lack of learned counsel, her text requires no apology for reprinting in this facsimile edition. It is the work of someone who has mastered the cadence of the best English religious prose of her age. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 312 pages. Multiple copies available this title. Quantity Available: 7. Category: Women & Feminism; Early Modern Englishwomen; England; Scolar Press. ISBN: 1859281001. ISBN/EAN: 9781859281000. Hardcover 192036 1.00

300 pages, with illustrations. The back board is somewhat scuffed. An in depth study of the history of the children's book. Book Description: When John Newbery published "A Little Pretty Pocket-Book" in London in 1744 he was onto something new: the writing and marketing of books devoted wholly to children. Although it was the Age of Reason and Newbery and his contemporaries believed that even the poorest young-ster could "look to his book" to achieve worldly success, there was an element of fun in the juvenile productions that soon flowed from the presses. The adventures of Dick Whittington, Giles Gingerbread, and Little Goody Two-Shoes delighted as they instructed. To read "Engines of Instruction, Mischief, and Magic: Children's Literature in England from Its Beginnings" to 1839 is to trace the origins of a cherished part of our cultural history.Mary V. Jackson's entertaining, lavishly illustrated book sets a new standard for the study of children's literature in England. Going beyond previous scholarship, she shows how social, political, religious, and aesthetic considerations shaped the form and content of children's books. These books have always been sensitive barometers of shifts in taste and belief, a means of inculcating in the young the prevailing values of the adult world. They brought about a revolution in publishing, as revealed in Jackson's discussion of marketing strategies and innovations. And they were indebted to adult literature and art: classics like "Robinson Crusoe" and "Gulliver's Travels" were eventually categorized as children's books, and Romantic poets and illustrators like William Blake pointed the way from Puritan piety to fantasy and freedom. This fascinating history is rich in implications for children's literature of today. --: About the Author: Mary V. Jackson, an associate professor of English and director of the women's studies program at the City College of CUNY, has published widely in scholarly journals. -- Size: 26 x 18.4 x 3.4 cm. 300 pages.

This is the first detailed survey of the past five centuries of book illustration in England. It is divided into two parts. Part One, A Critical Account, is a comprehensive analysis of specific artists, books and illustrations. It covers the anonymous work in books by leading printers before 1600 and then the work of over two hundred illustrators up to 1976. Part Two, a Catalogue of Illustrations and Books, lists 2700 significant English illustrated books. In addition the two hundred reproductions have been specially chosen to provide a record of representative illustrations which relate directly to the discussion. In each case, the author gives a general impression of an artist's work, describes the subject-matter of their designs, notes their relation to other illustrations, and comments on the most important or representative of their books. Each analysis attempts to reach an estimate of the artist's relative achievement as an interpretive illustrator. Size: 3.2 x 22.2 x 31.1 cm. 384 pages. Multiple copies available this title.

220 pages with illustrations. Francis Barlow is the first substantial study of the greatest English book illustrator before Blake. It sets Barlow, best known for his much prized sporting and animal pictures, firmly in the artistic and historical context of the 17th century. Dr. Hodnett chronicles the development of English illustrated books from the time of Caxton, and surveys in detail the seminal work of Gheeraerts the Elder, Cleyn, and Barlow's friend and collaborator Wenceslaus Hollar. He analyses in depth Barlow's visual realisations of the written word, and examines his entire body of interpretive illustrations. Dr. Hodnett concentrates especially on Barlow's contributions to the mystical Theophila and on his sparkling re-interpretations of Aesopic fables. Bibliography: p.223-226. _ Includes index.

Available Now. Missing Dustcover. "Book Description: This book is based on a conference held in Warwick in July 1995. It is a collection of essays which explore various aspects of George Eliot's relation to the literature and culture of Continental Europe. The essays range widely over the novelist's life and work, examining her Journals and Impressions of Theophratus Such as well as her novels, and focusing on different countries and cultures, including not only France, Germany and Italy, but also Holland and Spain. Some essays examine the complex general issues of language and culture raised in her work, while others concentrate on her response to specific European writers and texts. There are investigations of intertextualities and possibilities of influence, as well as contextual discussions and comparative readings of her novels alongside works by European writers. The overall effect is to illuminate her writing by setting it in the wider European context which, with her knowledge of languages, her travels and her extraordinary wide reading, she knew so well. : Review: 'Unravelling the complexity of Eliot's engagement with European culture is the primary intention of this volume and it is what makes this collection so worthwhile for Eliot scholars and readers.'

Hardback. Octavo. 24 x 16 cm. 222 pages with plates. The starting-point of this book is a forgotten narrative poem, Francouneto, written by the regional poet Jacques Jasmin and published simultaneously in Occitan and French Between 1840 and 1842. Francouneto, the heroine of the poem, is a village witch, whose presence brings destruction and infertility. Jasmin, a wigmaker, hairdresser, poet of the poor, collected his story from oral tradition and placed it in the sixteenth century. The author Professor Le Roy Ladurie examines the evidence and demonstrates beyond question the Francouneto was a real person who lived a century later, at the time of the last witchcraft trials in Gascony. Jasmin's Witch is part social history, part anthropology, part tale of detection, it is a story of village life written with the vigour and immediacy of Montaillou.

With a short introductory essay, putting the original writer and their works in an historical context, together with short bibliographical notes. The sixth and last queen of Henry VIII, and friend of Anne Askew, Katherine Parr (c.1513-1548) has a threefold claim to recognition for her contribution to the literary culture of her time. First, as a loving and adept stepmother to the royal children, who took a directive role in their education; second, as the patroness of a circle of Protestant humanist intellectuals who spearheaded the translation of Erasmus?s Latin Paraphrase upon the newe testamente; and third, as the author of the two vernacular religious works reproduced here, which established her as the earliest woman writer in English to see original works reach print and bear her name.

Starting with a study of the economic crises of the late nineteenth century, this volume moves on to consider the uneven development of corporate capitalism and the responses of employers and the state to workers' organisations, particularly trade unions. The focus then moves to politics, ideology and culture, and the contrasting fortunes of independent labour politics in the two countries. An overview of key developments during the inter-war years is followed by some concluding reflections on the 'class and exceptionalism' debate.

1980 0859675629 / 9780859675628 First Edition Hardcover New New 25.2 x 17.8 x 2.8 cm 
272 Pages. Comes in a slip-case. The association between J. M. W.Turner and Sir Walter Scott began in 1818 and lasted intermittently until the writer's death in 1832. It centered on Turner's Commissions to illustrate Scott's Provincial Antiquities and Picturesque Scenery of Scotland, and the Poetical Works. After Scott's death, Turner also illustrated the Prose works and Lockhart's classic life. The author sets his theme in the context of Turner's evolution as illustrator, discussing his methods of sketching and of developing sketches into watercolours for the engraver, and explaining how his style was affected by such technical matters as the change from copper-to steel-engraving. He also offers evidence that many of Turner's designs were intended not only to depict locations referred to in Scott's writings, but - symbolically - to commemorate Scott, and Turner's association with him. This and other aspects of Turner's achievement as Scott's illustrator are revealed in over one hundred illustrations. Bibliography: p265-267. - Includes index. Size: 25.2 x 17.8 x 2.8 cm. 272 pages.

Available Now. Book Description: This is the first full-length study of Lord Acton's History of Liberty. It is the first edited text of Lord Acton's notes made towards one of the great unwritten books of the nineteenth century. Herbert Butterfield once described Acton as 'by far the greatest historical thinker that England has ever had'. A friend of Gladstone and a member first of the House of Commons and then of the Lords, he accumulated a vast library, most of which is now in the University Library at Cambridge. It represents a man of cosmopolitan interests, both as a campaigner against Papal Infallibility and then, after 1870, for liberal causes. George Watson's text is a full account of the surviving books and papers. Acton's projected masterpiece, however, - the history of liberty on which he worked intensively, mainly in the years 1877 to 1883 - never emerged beyond a series of notes. In this book, George Watson presents a text of those notes. They offer many examples of Acton's liberal philosophy and epigrammatic style. : About the Author: George Watson, St John's College,University of Cambridge Size: 1.9 x 14.6 x 22.9 cm. 100 pages.

1993 0859679667 / 9780859679664 First Edition Hardcover New New 1.9 x 16.5 x 24.8 cm 
This narrative weaves together an examination of one of the 18th century's leading figures with some of Chesterfield's prose which has either been out of print or never before published. It includes an essay, of which only a fragment has appeared before, on the mistresses and sexual tastes of George II. Philip Dormer Stanhope, fourth Earl of Chesterfield, is generally remembered for his letters to his illegitimate son, indiscreetly published in the year after his death. In much of this book, the author is more concerned with a series of "characters" - the modern word is profiles - which Chesterfield wrote privately about those eminent contemporaries whom he had known intimately, from the King and Queen to such figures as Walpole, Newcastle, Pitt, Bolingbroke, Arbuthnot and Pope. The publishing history of Chesterfield's letters and the survival of the "characters", which were intended for oblivion, is traced. The author also examines the character of Lord Chesterfield, finding him more vulnerable and deserving of sympathy than the conventionally accepted verdict.

With a short introductory essay, putting the original writer and their works in an historical context, together with short bibliographical notes. The biography of Margaret Tyler remains speculative. It is known that she served the Howard family (Thomas Howard, Duke of Norfolk) in some capacity. Her level of education has been described as ?amazing? for a woman who was outside of the aristocracy and possibly a middle-class servant. Tyler was the first woman to publish a romance in England and the first English translator to work from the original Spanish. Because of the negative association of women with romance (considered a masculine domain) and the general cultural restrictions on female authorship, Tyler?s bold defence of her translation in the dedication and preface is remarkable, and as it is the earliest Englishwoman?s defence of women?s literary work, it has sometimes earned her the title of the first English feminist.

With a short introductory essay, putting the original writer and their works in an historical context, together with short bibliographical notes. Mary Wroth (1587-1653?) was niece and god-daughter of Mary Sidney Herbert. She was married in 1604 to Sir Robert Wroth with whom she joined the Court circle of James I. In 1618 she began work on her enormous prose romance The Countesse of Mountgomeries Urania. The first known work of original fiction by an Englishwoman it reflects her experience as an eyewitness to the turbulent Jacobean Court. Drawing upon a wide range of reading Wroth created a vast encyclopedic romance with a network of women placed at the centre. Its publication swiftly unleashed a storm of criticism from powerful noblemen who attacked Wroth for depicting their private lives under the guise of fiction. When protests reached the King, Wroth wrote a letter of disclaimer to George Villiers, First Duke of Buckingham, in which she stated that copies ?were solde against my minde I never purposing to have had them published?. She explained that she had stopped the sale of the book and asked for the King?s warrant to recover other copies. There is no evidence that the book was recalled. The 1621 edition reproduced here is a unique copy containing the author?s own handwritten revisions. Size: Octavo (standard book size). 616 pages. Multiple copies available this title.
