18. BURNS, JAMES [PUBLISHER].: Poems and Pictures : a Collection of Ballads, Songs, and other Poems. With one hundred illustrations on wood by English artists. London : James Burns, 1846. to, pp [12], 241, [1], half title, extra pictorial title, text within wood-engraved borders and illustrations within text throughout, wood-engraved by Linton after a variety of artists, bound in publisher's full red morocco, richly decorated in gilt to sides and spine, edges gilt, endpapers neatly replaced, half title and extra title slightly trimmed at edges, elsewhere with just slight foxing beginning and end and occasionally elsewhere but generally a sound clean and well restored copy,

SECOND EDITION, a tour de force of English book-illustrations of the period, incorporating pictorial designs of leading artists within bordered ballad texts. The title was evidently popular to reach a second printing in first year of publication [and a reprint in 1860], but this copy is remarkable in being bound in a fine red morocco casing rather than the usual cloth encountered on most copies, e.g. the NAL copy from the Harrod Collection. The binding appears to be unique to this de luxe issue, the recasing probably necessary replacement of an original gutta-percha binding. £75.00
