1 Logan, James The Clans Under the Patronage of the Highland Society of London [Clans of the Scottish Highlands]. Parts XI and XII
London Ackermann and Co no Original Wraps Poor R.R. McIan 
Two volumes, separate, in original stiff wraps with a thin cloth binding. Thess volumes appears to be whole unto themselves, labeled Part XI and XII at the upper left corner of the cover, and perhaps issued either before or separately and in conjunction with the two volume work by the same author and illustrator. No bibliographic information pertaining to these particular pieces, or any publications of this work in parts, could, at the present, be found. Part XI has three full color illustrated plates, a black and white illustrated cover, a first and last blank endpaper, 6 pages of text for two of the clans, with 4 pages of text for the third. The three clans in this part are the Clann Mhoraidh-the Murrays, The Mac Donalds, and Clann Pharlain- The Mac Pharlans. In POOR/FAIR condition. All pages are loose and DETACHED within the covers. There is very heavy wear to the extremities, especially along the fore edge. The wear is moderate to heavy chipping, mostly to the lower corner, with loss of the margins in this area, resulting in a rather tattered look in this section. The rest of the extremities have relatively minor wear, nothing close to the extent of the lower corner. The covers themselves are darkened and are soiled, with some scuffing as well. Very large dampstain covering almost the entire front cover, not affecting text or plates.The number 3 in pencil with a 2 inch underline and an initial are written in at the top left corner of the front cover. The rear cover displays some foxing and heavier soiling. The text is clean but the pages are darkened, as are the illustrated plates. The colors on the plate still appear vibrant, with the darkening noticeable around the page extremities. There is also some faint paint smudges on some of the pages, which I believe to have been from the coloring of the plates themselves. Overall a FRAGILE piece, in POOR/FAIR condition, with three color plates that are still attractive and vibrant. Part XII has three full color illustrated plates, a black and white illustrated cover, 2 blank endpapers, 6 pages, 4 pages, 4 pages of text, each corresponding with the clan they describe, as well as a blank page separating each illustration from the text. This volume appears to be whole unto itself, labeled Part XII at the upper left corner of the cover, and perhaps issued either before or separately and in conjunction with the two volume work by the same author and illustrator. Three clans are detailed in this volume: the Mac Donalds of Glenco, the Camerons, and the Lamonds. In POOR/FAIR condition. All pages are loose and DETACHED within the covers. There is very heavy wear to the extremities, especially along the fore edge. The wear is heavy chipping, mostly to the lower corner, with loss of the margins in this area, resulting in a rather tattered look in this section. The rest of the extremities have relatively minor wear, nothing close to the extent of the lower corner. The covers themselves are darkened and are soiled, with some scuffing as well. The number 3 in pencil with a 2 inch underline and an initial are written in at the top left corner of the front cover. The rear cover displays some foxing and heavier soiling and a dampstain along the fore edge. This dampstain is faintly evident on the front cover and is noticeable to the pages of text within, all within the fore edge margin. The text is clean but the pages are darkened, as are the illustrated plates. The colors on the plate still appear vibrant, with the darkening noticeable around the page extremities. There is also some faint paint smudges on some of the pages, which I believe to have been from the coloring of the plates themselves. Overall a FRAGILE piece, in POOR/FAIR condition, with three color plates that are still attractive and vibrant. Photos available upon request.

3 [Poe, Edgar Allan] 26 Planches Pour Illustrer Les Histoires Extraordinaires et Les Nouvelles Histoires Extraordinaires. [26 Illustrations for Poe's Stories]
Paris A. Quantin, Imprimeur-Editeur 1884 no Original Wraps Good+ Fair 
Stiff wraps with 26 loose plates (believe as issued. See Brown University's Harris classification system[Z15 E34] which gives a very brief mention of this title) illustrating Poe's stories.With a bound in title page and table of contents pages. Lacking the tie that closes the book. Illustrations include those for The Murder at Rue Morgue, The Fall of the House of Usher, The Black Cat and many others, as well as a portrait of Poe. Most appear to be etchings and heliogravures. All 26 are present. The wraps are in FAIR condition with heavy darkening to the covers, moderate soiling, two small dampstains to the center front, minor dampstaining along the lower rear edge, some foxing and other general wear. Corners are bumped and scuffed with the upper front corner creased, the upper rear cover missing a small diagonal portion and the lower corners bumped. The spine is a red cloth binding which is very faded with some staining. The interior is in GOOD+ condition. The title page is very darkened. There are several blank endpapers bound in the rear, the last of which appears to be missing 1 inches the length of its fore edge. The plates themselves are clean and bright with a few that have minor foxing to the extremities. The paper the illustrations are printed on varies from thicker to thinner stock, with the thinner stock being a bit browned. Some illustrations have slightly offset the the blank verso of the previous illustration. Overall, very attractive loose illustrations for Poe's work. in stiff wraps. Photos available upon request.
