A history of the cries of London, ancient and modern by Charles Hindley( Book )
9 editions published between 1881 and 2011 in English and held by 167 libraries worldwide
Charles Hindley (d.1893) wrote and edited many books on British popular literature and culture, including Curiosities of Street Literature (1871), Tavern Anecdotes and Sayings (1875) and The History of the Catnach Press (1886, also reissued in this series). This 1881 study traces the distinctive 'cries' of street traders in London from the time of Chaucer to the Victorian period and maintains Hindley's characteristic focus on people rather than mere facts. His use of nearly two hundred woodcuts, including many by Bewick, and his discussion of them at the beginning of the text, testifies to his enthusiasm for the printing press. Using evidence from 'broadsides, books or engravings', music and drama, Hindley vividly portrays the sights and sounds of the streets of London from many different periods, describing the vendors to be found in particular locations, and merchandise from cherries to ballad-sheets, shellfish to lavender, and scissors to ink

Die von Rousseaus Beurteilung (im Emile) beeinflußte Robinson-Nachdichtung stellt den Inselaufenthalt in den Mittelpunkt.

Campes "Robinson" gilt auch als erstes erzählendes Sachbuch. (AK) <dt.>

The Bewick collector : a descriptive catalogue of the works of Thomas and John Bewick ... by Thomas Hugo( Book )
2 editions published between 1866 and 1998 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
The names of Thomas Bewick (1753-1828) and his brother John (1760-1795) are synonymous with beautiful, delicate and accurate woodcuts of the natural world. Their instantly recognisable style was to influence book illustration well into the nineteenth century. The antiquary and print collector Thomas Hugo (1820-76), best known as a collector of Bewick woodcuts, first published this two-volume catalogue of his extensive collection in 1866-8. It has since emerged that many of the items sourced from printers' offices and booksellers across the country - including Thomas Bewick's own publisher, Emerson Charnley - cannot be authenticated as the Bewicks' work. The collection was nonetheless a remarkable assemblage of valuable materials, including uncut first editions, woodblocks, handbills and broadsides (all regrettably dispersed after Hugo's death) which might otherwise have been lost. Lavishly illustrated throughout, Volume 1 comprises the catalogue, which includes an appendix of Bewick portraits, letters and memorabilia
