The Bijou Almanack for 1845.
An attractive miniature stereotyped almanac of the type popularized by Albert Schloss from 1836 (his productions often came in a special box with a magnifying glass). Thomas Goode was one of a number of publishers to produce cheap imitations. The contents here are largely financial, and include a list of bankers, transfer days, and bill stamps.
ELEGANTLY BOUND TACITUS, C. Cornelius; Justus LIPSIUS and Hugo GROTIUS (editors).
[Opera] C. Corn. Tacitus ex I. Lipsii editione cum not. et emend. H. Grotii [– Historiarum libri quinque et alia ejusdem quae extant].
First edition with Grotius’s notes, elegantly bound in early nineteenth-century English morocco. Elzevir had published an edition of Lipsius’s Tacitus in 1634; Dibdin notes ‘Of these elegant little editions [of 1634 and 1640], that of 1640 is preferred, on account of its having the notes of Grotius. It is one of the scarcest of the Elzevir classics.’
