Description:
London: E. Rimmel, 1869 - 1879. Original decorative wrappers, each programme is 4pp; a single leaf, folded once to make a booklet (one, from 1877, is 8pp.). Mostly undated, but one contains an announcement of the first anniversary of the Theatre, and is dated December 20th, 1869. Another, in slightly larger format, is dated 1879. Condition is mostly very good - some have chips from corners and edges, and some have short tears or splitting at the spine. The issue of December 20, 1869 lists Mr. Henry Irving as appearing in "Uncle Dick's Darling". Irving later wrote a sketch for the "Clover Papers" in which he reminisced about this play at the Gaiety Theatre. The Gaiety Theatre opened in 1868, built on the site of the earlier Strand Musick Hall. These programmes were "Printed and Perfumed by E. Rimmel, 96, Strand," etc. ... The perfume has not survived the years, alas. For the lot:

Description:
Chicago: Continental Publishing Company, 1887.. Small folio. 9.5 x 12.5 inches. Original brown cloth, front cover designed and lettered in black. Missing the front end paper and perhaps fly leaf, also missing the last page (215/216) which was probably printed with tables. Both covers loose, first few leaves loose, covers separated along front hinge. Internally quite decent, the maps all in good shape. 101 pages of maps (world map, hemispheres, and pages 34-129); also some tables. Copyright is 1887 by Rand, McNally; many of the maps also copyright by Rand, McNally, some dated 1886. Worldcat lists this edition with 3 holdings, and another of this publisher from 1889. This is very similar to the Rand, McNally Standard Atlas of the World, which was also published in Chicago by Continental in 1887. Scarce.

Description:
London: 1771. 8vo. xx + 366 pages. Full calf, spine lettered in gilt on a panel of red. Marbled end papers. The calf is finished in an unusual marbled pattern. Large chip from the upper spine, not affecting the title; upper cover and first blank leaf detached; a clean very good copy otherwise. Early ownership signature of William Thomas Wyld on the verso of the front end paper, and that of a later owner on the detached blank. This issue has a colon after London on the title page. This is the so-called "Piccadilly Edition", a re-issue of the 1771 London edition. The author was assumed by some to be Edmund Burke; later scholarship suggests that it was in fact Sir Philip Francis (1740-1818). The Junius letters were serialized beginning in 1769, and many unauthorized and incomplete editions were issued soon after.
