Schloss's English Bijou Almanac for 1842. Poetically Illustrated by the Hon. Mrs. Norton.

Norton, Caroline (illus.)

London: Schloss, Albert, (1841). 64pp. With portraits of Charles Dickens, Mlle. Rachel, the Princess Royal, Ellen Tree, John Murray, and Herr Standigl. Also contains a calendar, lists of royal birthdays, European sovereigns, Queen's Ministers, the Royal Household, etc. The pages were all engraved on a single steel sheet, then transferred to a lithographic stone. Tinier and more finely printed than its peers in England or on the Continent, the English Bijou received rave reviews from the contemporary press. Spielmann described it as "a miracle of fine and delicate engraving, done consistently and beautifully to an almost unbelievably tiny scale." Bound in black wrappers with a gilt acorn design to the covers, in a matching slipcase. Wear to extremities of book and case, else near fine. A.e.g. (Spielmann 448; Bondy 42, 165; Welsh 2661). (3/4 by 9/16; 20x15mm). Item #24945
