18 Atkinson, Thomas Miscellanies in Prose and Verse. Now first collected and arranged in three Volumes
London Longman, Rees, Orme, Browne, Green and Longman 1833 no First Edition Hard Cover Good No Jacket 
Believed first edition. One of a stated 175 copies. THIS IS VOLUME THREE only. Atkinson, a Scottish writer and bookseller in Glasgow, born around 1800 garnered some accolades for his work, notably from Sir Walter Scott, and was an active traveler and speaker. He died in 1833, contracting an illness, most likely the result of exertions from his last travel. This volume contains many pieces of poetry, as well as some minstrel style pieces which are set to music. (The music is also printed within). Of note in this regard are several pieces giving the composer to be J.P. Clarke, possibly the noted Canadian musician and composer known for his work in religious music and music teachings in Canada. Clarke, originally from Edinburgh emigrated to Canada in 1834. Other than the bit of research I did, I have no proof that this is the same man but it does seem to fit well. Another piece of music gives John Thomson as composer, who could be the noted Scottish composer, a contemporary of Mendelssohn. Also in this volume is a history of the First Crusade, a lengthy commentary on the consequences of the Holy Wars in Palestine, and several small anecdotes on some of his travels. This book is in GOOD condition. Previous owner’s personal library sticker at the foot of the spine. Moderate scuffing to the covers. Light soiling. Uneven light darkening. Moderate edgewear with corners bumped and frayed, spine pulled and frayed with some loss to top and bottom of the backstrip, and some light bumping and rubbing to the extremities. Spine faded. Inner text clean and tight with some sporadic but light foxing, with some heavier foxing to the blank pages that precede the pieces of music. Previous owner’s bookplate on inside front cover. Nice copy of this very scarce work in GOOD condition.
