MILNER, Thomas, 1808-1882 : THE GALLERY OF NATURE: A PICTORIAL AND DESCRIPTIVE TOUR THROUGH CREATION, ILLUSTRATIVE OF THE WONDERS OF ASTRONOMY, PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY, AND GEOLOGY.

MILNER, Thomas, 1808-1882 : THE GALLERY OF NATURE: A PICTORIAL AND DESCRIPTIVE TOUR THROUGH CREATION, ILLUSTRATIVE OF THE WONDERS OF ASTRONOMY, PHYSICAL GEOGRAPHY, AND GEOLOGY.

London : for the Proprietors by William S. Orr & Co., 1846. First edition. The Reverend Milner with a hugely popular Victorian exploration of the wonders of the physical world. Originally published in parts 1844-1846 – “a well-written and profusely illustrated serial, beautifully printed, and so cheap that, even in these days of cheap literature, it excites surprise how so much can be given for so little money. It is work that ought to be in the library of every Mechanics’ Institute, Artizans’ Society, or Athenaeum in the kingdom: it deserves the most widely-extended sale that is possible; and nothing but that can adequately reward those who have embarked in the undertaking” (Leicester Chronicle, 8th February 1845).
Royal 8vo (246 x 164mm). xii,(804)pp. Eight engraved plates by Edward Radclyffe. Four folding sidereal maps by Stephen John Russell. Three folding charts and a map by John Dower. Some 250 wood-engraved vignettes and hundreds of diagrams. Bound in a handsome contemporary half black polished calf, intricately worked in gilt and blind, and with the ownership initials “W. T.” at foot; marbled sides; sprinkled edges; some minor wear; a few internal marks, spots and faint signs of age and use, but still overall a very good copy.

£200

RANDELL, Thomas : GEOGRAPHY OF GLOUCESTERSHIRE. ADAPTED TO THE NEW CODE.

London : William Collins, Sons & Co. [1872]. First edition. An attractive and unusual Victorian school text, with a folding coloured map of the county, woodcut illustrations and population statistics drawn from the 1871 Census. The “New Code” referred to would appear to be the New Education Code of 1871. In the “Collins County Geographies” series.
Foolscap 8vo (17cm). 32pp. Folding coloured map. Original wrappers; a little worn and slightly dusty, but a very good example of a scarce, fragile and ephemeral production.
