FIRST EDITION thus. Two volumes. Original diced calf boards with modern rebacked calf leather spine with raised bands and gilt tooled design of a flower. Two red morocco labled with gilt lettering. Frontispieces, illustrated. This has the lengthy life of Defoe plus an elaborate list of Defoe's writings, followed by the 8 pages of publisher's catalog in Vol 2. Thomas Stothard (August 17, 1755 - April 27, 1834) was an English painter and engraver. He designed plates for pocket-books, tickets for concerts, illustrations to almanacs, portraits of popular actors--into all these he infused a grace and distinction which make them sought after by collectors. Among his more important series are the two sets of illustrations to Robinson Crusoe, one for the New Magazine and one for Stockdale's edition, and the plates to The Pilgrim's Progress (1788), to Harding's edition of Goldsmith's Vicar of Wakefield (1792), to The Rape of the Lock (1798), to the works of Solomon Gessner (1802), to William Cowper's Poems (1825), and to The Decameron; while his figure-subjects in the superb editions of Samuel Rogers's Italy (1830) and Poems (1834) prove that even in old age his imagination was still fertile, and his hand firm.
