D15C. (Smith, R.C), Raphael’s Witch!!! Or the Oracle of the Future, 1831, 3rd edition, William Charlton Wright 1835, 12mo, brown cloth with paper title label to spine, 198pp + 4pp + 2pp advertisements, with diagrams and tables in the text + a title page engraving and 2 folding engraved plates. ‘Raphael’, or Robert Cross Smith, was a well known early 19th century pedlar of almanacs and other related literature. Seemingly based upon Napoleon’s Book of Fate, Smith adapted the work, here termed the ‘Lady Witch’ for use in soirees and garden parties amongst the landed gentry, and added additional material including sections on ‘Cabalistic’ alphabets, the Evil Eye, and other related magical subjects. Touted as a ‘new edition’ and ‘entirely revised’, the main text remained unchanged. Although advertised to be ‘coloured,’ the 10 copperplate designs appearing on the two plates and title page in this copy and most others were not hand coloured as intended. This was probably due to financial reasons, and despite accusations of charlatanism, Smith never became rich from his esoteric endeavours! Covers slightly marked, spine a little worn at head and tail with slight splitting to the tips of the joints, original spine label chipped at corner, rather darkened and soiled, but textually complete. Some occasional light soiling, end papers spotted, minor spots to the text in places, stitching strained in places, a few inner margin neatly reinforced with clear tape, small tear to inner margin of frontispiece plate, and to one fold on the second plate, both neatly reinforced with clear tape on the blank verso, pencil numerological notes to front end paper by a former owner. Overall, still a good and reasonably sound complete copy of a very scarce early issue £225
