Book Of Trades Or Library Of The Useful Arts 3 Vols. 1804-05 First Ed./58 Plates For Sale

Book Of Trades Or Library Of The Useful Arts 3 Vols. 1804-05 First Ed./58 Plates

The Book of Trades, or Library of the Useful Arts. London: Printed for Tabart and Co., 1804-05. FIRST EDITION. Three volumes, 12mo (ca. 5 5/8 in.), in early/original quarter roan and marbled boards; with 22 pp. of adverts for Books published by "Tabart and Co. at their Juvenile Library"; 58 (of 59) copper-engraved plates.

An incomplete copy: lacking one of the plates (the Feather-worker) and 6 text leaves (3 from vol. II and 3 from vol. III). Bindings rubbed and worn with some loss to the spine leather, one board detached; first two volumes lacking front free-endpapers; several page-gatherings protruding a bit from the text block, with a couple of them loosening; some dust-soiling to the edges, intermittent light spotting to the leaves, but the plates are generally quite clean and bright.

Imperfect and a bit rough, but still an uncommon example of the first edition of this often reprinted work. Originally intended for younger readers, it is today an invaluable, clearly written and charmingly illustrated survey of early 19th-century trades and professions: wool-comber, waterman, cooper, smith, apothecary, coach-maker, paviour, copper-plate printer, needle-maker, brazier, sadler, cork-cutter, etc., etc.
