Most widely held works by John and Arthur Arch
The bibliographical decameron, or, Ten days pleasant discourse upon illuminated manuscripts, and subjects connected with early engraving, typography, and bibliography by Thomas Frognall Dibdin( Book )

2 editions published in 1817 in English and held by 178 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bibliomania, the almost obsessive collecting of rare books and early editions by the aristocracy, which peaked in 1812 with the sale of the Valdarfer Boccaccio, was fuelled in no small part by the work of the bibliographer Thomas Frognall Dibdin (1776-1847). His most famous book, Bibliomania, popularised the word's use in England. The present work was first published in three volumes in 1817 and may be considered a continuation of Bibliomania in both style and content. Using a dialogue format with extensive footnotes, it covers all aspects of bibliography from early illuminated manuscripts and printed books through to contemporary book collectors and auctions. The work is notable for the number and quality of its illustrations. Volume 3 presents accounts of book collectors and auctions since 1811, and bibliographical and general indexes to the whole work. Dibdin's Bibliomania (revised edition, 1811) and his Reminiscences of a Literary Life (1836) are also reissued in this series

"A book on the future Southwark Cathedral by the local artist and engraver William Taylor, which provides the most nearly contemporary record of restoration work done to the church in the 1820s and 1830s by the architects George Gwilt (1773-1856) and Robert Wallace (c.1790-1874), and which complements an earlier nineteenth-century book on the cathedral by W.G. Moss. Taylor also describes recent discoveries of Roman remains in Southwark, the monuments in the church, and so on, making his factual narrative more acceptable to his readers by casting much of it as a conversation between him and a genial old antiquary. The plates were engraved by the author himself, partly from his own drawings. The work was originally issued in parts ."--Abebooks
