DUYCKINCK, Evert, publ. VALUABLE SECRETS IN ARTS, TRADES, ETC. SELECTED FROM THE BEST AUTHORS AND ADAPTED TO THE SITUATION OF THE UNITED STATES. New York: Evert Duyckinck, 1809. 12mo. 380 pp. + [20] pp. Index. Modern binding of mottled calf in a contemporary style, with a lettering piece and gilt single-rules on spine, and blind tooled frames on sides. Some of the gilt lettering on spine has flaked off. Bookblock is scuffed on fore-edge; moderate foxing within. The title-leaf and the following leaf ("The Editor's Preface") have been mounted on transparent tissue. One text leaf (p. 307-308) has loss at bottom forecorner, affecting just one letter of type. Another leaf (p. 309-310) has an old paper repair at top forecorner, not affecting type. Despite the flaws mentioned, it is an attractive, sound and very good copy. (Shaw & Shoemaker 19085).
