[Alken, Henry] Illustrations to Popular Songs

London: Thomas McLean, 1822, but later.

Oblong folio. Attractively bound by Bickers and Sons, with gilt design motifs on all four corners both covers, gilt ruling, spine gilt; old spine preserved and laid down. Pictorial title and 41 plates only (of 42, lacking "The Sportsmen all rode..."), all hand-coloured soft-ground etchings with multiple images, borders with water-colour wash, interleaved, some soiling and light staining, pictorial title water-stained at upper edge mostly affecting border, a few plates with marginal defects repaired, title page with small tear, penultimate plate torn and slightly defective at fore-edge (laid down). With faults, still a nice tight copy of a rather scarce and desirable Rowlandson production.

Price: $850.00   Item #3549
