Typographical antiquities, or, The history of printing in England, Scotland, and Ireland : containing memoirs of our ancient printers, and a register of the books printed by them by Joseph Ames( Book )

in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When this work was published, its original author had been dead for fifty years. As the title page explains, the work of Joseph Ames (1687-1759) was considerably augmented by William Herbert (1718-95), and then 'greatly enlarged, with copious notes, and illustrated with appropriate engravings' by Thomas Frognall Dibdin (1776-1847), several of whose other works are also reissued in this series. Ames' history of printing, based on his own collection, was published in 1749, as an aid to booksellers in identifying old works (and modern forgeries). Herbert, a printseller and bibliophile, acquired Ames' own interleaved copy of the work and intended to enlarge it, but died having completed only three of six proposed volumes. His working copies then passed to Dibdin, who eventually published this four-volume edition between 1810 and 1819. Volume 3 considers the lives and work of printers from William Faques to Nicholas Bourman

1 edition published in 1805 in English and held by 41 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ayant accepté en 1792 d'accompagner le duc Macartney lors de son ambassade en Chine, Alexander crée de nombreux croquis lors du voyage de retour de Pékin à Canton par voie fluviale. Aucun artiste britannique n'avait encore ramené des images de cette voie de communication à l'intérieur de l'empire chinois. Ces croquis ont ensuite servi pour des aquarelles peintes par Alexander et pour de nombreuses planches gravées par Alexander lui-même ou par d'autres artistes. Pendant plus d'un demi-siècle, ces planches ont exercé une grande influence sur des artistes à la recherche de sujets chinois (d'après Grove dictionary of art)

Marmion : a tale of Flodden Field by Walter Scott( Book )

1 edition published in 1808 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The poem tells how Lord Marmion, a favourite of Henry VIII of England, lusts for Clara de Clare, a rich woman. He and his mistress, Constance De Beverley, forge a letter implicating Clara's fiancé, Sir Ralph De Wilton, in treason. Constance, a dishonest nun, hopes that her aid will restore her to favour with Marmion. When De Wilton loses the duel he claims in order to defend his honour against Marmion, he is obliged to go into exile. Clara retires to a convent rather than risk Marmion's attentions. Constance's hopes of a reconciliation with Marmion are dashed when he abandons her; she ends up being walled up alive in the Lindisfarne convent for breaking her vows. She takes her revenge by giving the Abbess who is one of her three judges documents that prove De Wilton's innocence. De Wilton, having returned disguised as a pilgrim, follows Marmion to Edinburgh where he meets the Abbess, who gives him the exonerating documents. When Marmion's host, the Earl of Angus is shown the documents, he arms De Wilton and accepts him as a knight again. De Wilton's plans for revenge are overturned by the battle of Flodden Field. Marmion dies on the battlefield, while De Wilton displays heroism, regains his honour, retrieves his lands, and marries Clara. --Wikipedia.com
