9 Boyd, S. Fred (Ed) 1892 Boyd's Co-Partnership and Residence Business Directory of Philadelphia
Philadelphia Boyd's Directory Office 1892 34th edition Hardcover Good 
Engraved ads; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 1524 pages; The 1892 edition of the most comprehensive record of Philadelphia business and residence listings. Complete copy with 1386 page primary text divided among a 706 page "residence and copartnership" directory, a [689] 707- 1386 pages business directory organized by business type/concern, an 86 page City Register and a 52 page Street and Avenue Directory. The whole lavishly populated with engraved business advertisements tipped in on colored paper, printed in-text and appended as premium ads at front and rear. This example of the very uncommon directory is flawed in several regards: the elaboarate advertisement printed red cloth is complete and generally neat but the inner joints are split such that the whole boards and casing are almost detached from the page block. The first 15 or so leaves (primarily full page ads) are detached and loose, laid in at front. The page block is fully split between the co-partnership and business sections. Several leaves at rear are loose or detached, but present. University Library bookplate mounted to pictorial ad front pastedown. But no library attachments such as pockets, sticker or labels are present. A complete copy that would certainly benefit from the attention of a binder or restorer. Profusely illustrated with engraved and pictorial ads for late Victorian businesses. Flaws make this good only, but could be well improved by the attentions of a qualified binder. ... Oversize book may require additional charges for expedited or international shipping.

20 Collins, Wilkie The Fallen Leaves
Leipzig Bernhard Tauchnitz 1879 1/4 leather Very Good- 
12mo 7" - 7" tall; 289 & 276 pages; Very uncommon Tauchnitz published edition, issued concurrently with the Chatto London edition. 2 vols in 1. Bound in 1/4 red leather with marbled paper covered boards. Spine slightly cocked; spine edges and surfaces of raised bands are lightly rubbed. Marbled paper boards lightly rubbed corners. Binding firm and enpages neat. Silk bookmark sewn in. Chatto & Windus published the work in 3 vols, 1879; Tauchnitz in 2 vol edition simultaneously. Tauchnitz, who was a personal friend of Collins, was an important publisher of English literary works "on the continent. " At a time when piracy was common Tauchnitz undertook to purchase from the author the publishing rights for his work outside of England and America. Thus the great majority of his publications bear the imprint on either title page or verso of being a "Copyright edition". His publication of important literary works were often concurrent with and sometime prior to London publication dates. This example of this difficult to find Collins title is VG-
