Description:
1831 Traditions of Lancashire Pendle WITCHES Witchcraft Mab's Cross John Dee

John Roby's "Traditions of Lancashire" is a 19th-century study in English folklore. Originally published in 1829, this work offers stories of folk tales most of which were only ever available through the 'oral tradition'. In fact, Roby claimed to be a collector of oral folk tales and published them under this title. From the first edition:
"It was Roby's object to perpetuate these interesting relics of the past, and to present them in a form that may be generally acceptable."
The book was popular throughout England in the 19th-century, as readers craved learning of local legends and mythologies. Note the impressive full-page engravings included in this 1831 edition, second series.

1807 1ed Noah WEBSTER Dictionary English Language American School ed Grammar
Rare first edition of Webster's famous school dictionary!
The name 'Webster' has become synonymous with dictionary over the last century. Noah Webster sought to create a purely 'American' culture that was independent of British claim, he achieved this by creating this dictionary – a work that helped distance American grammar and linguistics from that of Britain.
According to the 'Printing of the Mind of Man',
"This dictionary, which almost at once became, and has remained, the standard English dictionary in the United States, was the end-product of a stream of spelling books, grammars, readers, and dictionaries which flowed from the pen of the industrious Noah Webster. Webster's great dictionary, all the 70,000 entries of which he wrote with his own hand, has been reprinted and brought up to date innumerable times. The book marked a definite advance in modern lexicography, as it included many non-literary terms and paid… Read More

1822 1st eds SCOTTISH Sir Walter Scott Saint Ronan's Well Peveril of Peak 7v SET

Sir Walter Scott was a Scottish historical novelist, playwright and poet. Many of his works remain classics of both English-language literature and of Scottish literature. These volumes are the true first Scottish edition of Scott's famous books 'St. Ronan's Well' and 'Peveril of the Peak.'
Scott's novel, Peveril of the Peak tracks the events of the Popish Plot of 1678, in which Jesuits were accused of planning the assassination of King Charles II in order to make his Roman Catholic brother, the Duke of York, King. Set during the time of the pretended Popish Plot (1678).
"The author draws elaborate portraits of Charles II and Buckingham, and gives glimpses of such historical characters as Titus Oates, Colonel Blood (the impudent revolutionary who tried to steal the crown jewels from the Tower), and Sir Geoffrey Hudson (Henritta Maria's dwarf)." (Oxford Companion to English Literature)
St. Ronan's Well is a novel of… Read More

1840 1ed SLAVERY in CUBA Travels Abolitionist Turnbull Tobacco Sugar Coffee MAP
David Turnbull was a 19th-century abolitionist who is best-remembered for his anti-slavery voyage to Cuba in 1838. While in Cuba, where slavery was still legal, Turnbull was blamed for creating unrest and slave revolts which resulted in his being expelled from Cuba. His experiences spurred him to write his book 'Travels in the West' in which he denounces slavery in Cuba and discussed the 'controversies' he created in the Caribbean slave movement.
Turnbull also describes tobacco, coffee, and sugar plantations and the reliance on slave labor in the commerce and trade markets.

Red on Boards with gold and black lettering or design. normal wear in good shape. Inside boards front and back have a neat designing.Wikipeida says this :Then and Now is a historical novel by W. Somerset Maugham. Set mainly in Imola, Italy, but also in other Italian cities, including Machiavelli's hometown Florence during the Renaissance, the story focuses on three months in the life of Niccolò Machiavelli, the Florentine politician, diplomat, philosopher and writer in the early years of the 16th century. The book was first published by Heinemann in 1946. It recollects Machiavelli's encounter with Cesare Borgia, who was the model on which Machiavelli based his Il Principe. Against that background, a love farce unfolds, in which Machiavelli tries to seduce the young wife of his host at Imola. The unsuccessful affair gave Machiavelli the idea of writing his first comedy, The Mandrake. Thus, Then and Now appears to combine the two best-known works of Machiavelli – The Prince and The Mandrake.
