Descripción

Three volumes complete - Volume One - [5], vi-xxiv, 478pp; Volume Two - xiv, 448pp and Volume Three - xxxvi, 436pp. Full contemporary russian calf, raised bands, spine divided into five panels, morocco title label to second panel, volume number in gilt to fourth, remaining panels decorated with oscillating lines in blind, covers bordered with gilt roll, gilt roll to edges, edges marbled, spot patterned marbled endpapers. Spines slightly faded, slightly rubbed to head of spines, couple of small nicks to covers, scrape to rear cover of volume three. Internally occasional very light browning, off setting from frontispiece on to title, but generally quite bright and clean. Previous owners armorial bookplate to front pastedowns (Newborough), binding is by John Pritchard of Carnarvon with his ticket to front pastedowns. For Pritchard see Ramsden, pg 135 (who unfairly describes all their work as 'rather rough'). Barrington, Sir Jonah (1756/7-1834), judge and author, "The better-known and sociologically invaluable Personal Sketches of his Own Times (1827-32), written with panache and humour, takes the reader on his various peregrinations. The Irish passages breathe the lifestyle of the country's fire-eating ‘half-mounted gentlemen’; the French narratives tell of Dorothy Jordan, of Napoleon, and of life in Paris before and after Waterloo" (Oxford DNB) Size: 8vo.
