C12BB. (Heywood, T), The Life of Merlin, Surnamed Ambrosius; his Prophecies and Predictions Interpreted, and Their Truth Made Good by Our English Annals. 1641, 2nd edition, 2nd issue, Lackington, Allen & Co. 1813, 8vo, recently rebound in half dark brown morocco over brown marbled papered boards, raised bands to spine in compartments with gilt rules, filets and title, new end papers, fore and lower edges uncut, title page rubricated, 4 + 324pp including index, with an engraved frontispiece. A curious work detailing a chronological history of the kings of Britain, from Brute forwards centred on the life and strange prophecies of Merlin Ambrosius, showing their meaning and continued relevance. Trivial rub mark to lower corner of front board, edges of text block browning, some occasional minor spotting, mostly to margins. With the ownership signature of surgeon William Sloggett to top of title page, along with his blind impressed stamp to blank top of frontispiece, which itself has caused some off-setting to the title page, but otherwise a near very good tight, textually bright and overall very clean copy of the increasingly scarce first reprint, issued at Carnarvon in 1812 and in London the following year £295

C12G. Lacy, N.J, The New Arthurian Encyclopedia, 1st edition, St. James Press 1991, 4to, quarter grey cloth over orange cloth boards, gilt titles to spine, gilt titles and illustration to front board, 38 + 577pp including index, with illustrations in the text and a full page map.

C13B. Loomis, R Sherman, The Grail: From Celtic Myth to Christian Symbol, 1963, Princeton University Press 8vo pbk. 1991, 14 + 287pp including index + 3 plates.

Overall, a near very good textually clean and tight copy £2.50

C13C. Machen, A, The Secret of the Sangraal, 1st edition, Tartarus Press 1995, 8vo, black cloth with gilt titles to spine, 4 + 287pp, with a foreword by R.B. Russell, number 82 of a hand numbered limited edition of 250 copies; a collection of Machen’s essays on Celtic magic and mythology heavily featuring Arthurian themes, drawn from various sources, and centred around his excellent and often unjustly overlooked study,  The Secret of the Sangraal, which was first published as part of The Shining Pyramid in 1923.  A little trivial soiling to edges of text block in places, otherwise internally and externally clean and tight, a near fine copy of the scarce first issue in near very good (light rubbing to top edge, light to medium spotting over the exterior panels with a couple of more noticeable marks to front panel) d/w £70

Minor bumping to spine ends and lower corner of rear board, minor soiling to edges of text block, internally clean and tight, a very good copy of the increasingly uncommon true first issue £25
