In dustwrappers and publisher's slipcases.

LE MORTE DARTHUR BY SIR THOMAS MALORY KT.

London, Philip Lee Warner, The Medici Society , 1910-1911. First edition. 4

volumes. 4to. The Text of William Caxton in modernized spelling. 46

colored plates by William Russell Flint. Tissue guards printed in red.

Full limp vellum; gilt titles; top edges gilt. Green silk ties; white ribbon

markers. Printed on Riccardi handmade paper. One of 500 numbered copies,

this being number 280. In the scarce green dust wrappers printed in black.

The rear inner hinge of Volume 4 has pulled a bit, else the books are in fine,

bright condition. The dust wrappers have some minor sunning, and the dust

wrapper to volume 3 lacks a small piece at the base of the spine, but overall

the dust wrappers are in very good condition and a scarce survival

Each volume is housed in the original publisher's

slipcase. The slipcases are generally worn and sunned,

but still serviceable and presentable.

This is likely the nicest set of the Flint Malory in limp

vellum available.

More, Hannah,

STRICTURES ON THE MODERN SYSTEM OF FEMALE EDUCATION

Charlestown, Printed by Samuel Etheridge, for E. Larkin,,1800. 12mo. Two volumes bound in

one. xi,(1),146; (3)-136pp. Contemporary full sheep; modern black lettering label, gilt, to style on

the spine.

Hinges and spine tips have been neatly repaired, wear to the edges of the boards, else this is a very

good copy. With the 1801 ownership signature of Elizabeth Cabot on a preliminary blank, and the

armorial bookplate of Charles Jackson on the front pastedown.

More was a contemporary of Johnson, Dryden, and Montague. She was a strong anti-slavery

advocate, and even more determined to edcuate women for their good and that of society. First

published in London in 1799, this is one of the two American editions produced in 1800, the other

published in Philadelphia. We have been unable to establish precedence to our satisfaction.
