<p> 4to. Three parts in one volume. Each part commences with its own title page and woodcut frontispiece of the Round Table. <p>Sixth edition of Malory's Morte d'Arthur and the first edition obtainable. It was preceded by Caxton, 1485; De Worde, 1498 & 1529; Copland, 1557 and East, 1578, none of which are available barring a new discovery. The establishment of the Commonwealth under Cromwell spelled the end of editions of Malory and other books favoring the monarchy until 1816.  <p>This copy bound in a well executed nineteenth century unsigned binding of full brown morocco, spine in six compartments with raised bands, all gilt; gilt rules on the boards and all edges gilt. The binding is in fine condition.  <p>Complete except for a remargining and restoration of the frontispiece to Part III. The first thing to check with the 1634 Malory is how many pages are defective or in facsimile; usually there are several. This copy is entirely complete with only the frontispiece woodcut of Part II remargined at the fore-edge and bottom edge, and with the top outer corner restored with a few words in fine manuscript facsimile to match the printed type. The only other defect we have noted is an old stain (candle soot?) on Part I, leaf Ff2. (Some catalogues note the lack of the final blank in Part II, leaf Rr2, but this leaf is not called for and Part II in this copy ends correctly with leaf Rr1. )<p>This is essentially a near fine, complete copy of the earliest edition of the Morte d'Arthur obtainable.<p>STC 806; ESTC S100230; Printing and the Mind of Man, 29, for the Caxton printing.

The Nuremberg Folk  Festival began in 1826 and included a large parade. This 1853 Festival was no exception and was commemorated by the present lithograph, reputedly executed by Leopold Itzel. A glorious example of lithography: The Herold der Stadt Nürnberg and Trompeter are followed by the Ehrenfahnenträgen für Bauern; Noris, the Representation of Nuremberg,  follows in a Roman chariot; then trade representatives: artists, plumbers, armour, carpenters, locksmith, a Flora and Pomona in chariots, triumphal cart of Gartner, a train of brewers, Buttner and hosts, and finally floats from rural communities Steinbuhl, Mogeldorf and Rednizhembach, the last as a canal boat. The captions along the bottom are in German. The first 8 panels are hand colored, thereafter the lithograph is uncolored. Some light soiling , some folds repaired, occasionally trimmed closely; housed in original cardboard covers, worn at edges with their ribbon ties replaced. In all 27 participants or groups on 19 panels. Rare to start with and hardly ever found complete.
