Antique Georgian Book ~ (1813) ~ Thomas Rowlandson

A wonderful antique book, which features 31 etchings by Thomas Rowlandson - the master of Georgian caricature. Each plate has early, original hand-coloured detail - skillfully executed in watercolour at the time - published on quality 'J. Whatman' paper. Over 200 years old.

Thomas Rowlandson (1756-1827) was an English artist and caricaturist. The beautiful plates in this book really demonstrate his skill at capturing the grotesque, the bawdy, and the satirical.

'The Tour of Doctor Syntax - In Search of the Picturesque - A Poem' ~ 'Third Edition' ~ 'Pubd April 1st, 1813, at R. Ackermann's Repository of Arts, 101 Strand, London'.

A beautiful leather-bound book, with scarlet label and gilt lettering to spine. A genuine piece of Georgian British social and cultural history, which is evocative of the era and will display beautifully in any home library.

Why buy from Spencer Bros? We source quality antique books from auction houses and private dealers around the UK, and list all of our items accurately and honestly. Antiques are a safe investment option - you can display and enjoy your treasures, while they continue to increase in value. We package all of our books incredibly securely - and use a reliable 24-hour courier - so they always reach you safely.

Measurements: 23.5cm height; 15.5cm width; 3cm depth.

The book is fully complete, and includes all of the original hand-coloured plates, (which can be checked against the list at the end of the book: 'Directions to the Binder for placing the Plates'). It is very rare to find such an early edition of this book, especially in its complete state (people often framed the etchings). At 201 years old, some signs of age have to be expected: there is some general wear to the cover, some staining to opening pages/frontispiece (refer to photographs), and some occasional light creasing and discolouration. Overall, it is good for age and the plates have survived incredibly well.

Our preferred method of payment is PayPal, the safest and easiest way to pay for goods on eBay!
