This form will search all books.

If you enter two or more words in this box, the search will look for both words, but not necessarily in the order you enter. Don't worry about upper and lower case. The search ignores words of less than three letters, such as initials like the "H" and "G" in "H. G. Wells".

To look for part of a word, use the wildcard * - for example, lon* will find "London" and "Longfellow". If you want to exclude a word from your search, put a minus sign in front of it: -pirates bucc* will find buccaneers, but not pirates.


This form will search all books.

You can make a very specific search using this form: keep your search broad enough to find what you are looking for! If you enter two or more words in the Author, Title, Publisher or Keywords fields we'll look for all of them, though not necessarily in the order you enter them.

Where a book has more than one ISBN we use the British ISBN; and we also tend to use the 10-digit ISBN instead of the 13-digit one.

Tallis's History and Description of the Crystal Palace and the Exhibition of the Worlds Industry in 1851 (3 Volumes Bound in 1)

John Tallis / London Printing and Publishing Company, London
Thick, heavy 4to. in red leather backed marbled boards with leather corner pieces (i.e. a half leather binding). This copy has a coloured title-page followed by plain title-page, 2pp intro., 4pp contents to Vol 1 followed by 155 steel engraved plates - one or two per leaf. The full text of Vol 1, and 2 and 3 follows, each with title page and contents lists bound in. This book was originally issued in parts (about 18 in all, 6 per volume). It is not known how many plates were actually printed, but it is known to be many fewer than the contents lists mention, and few if any copies have the complete set of those that were printed.
VERY GOOD+, a well preserved clean and tight copy (small repaired split near head of spine, inner hinges strengthened or repaired with paper tape, some very mild tanning to plate edges)
