Lamb,Charles. (1775-1834). A book explaining the rank and dignities of Britisch society. London, Printed for Tabart and Co. at the Juvenile and School Library. 1809. 2nd edition 1st published in 1805. 24 hand-coloured, tipped-in plates. 12mo.4-136-4pp. Black leather binding over grey paper-wrapped boards. Rare Children's book on titles of honour. Contrary to the List of Plates, there is no "Knight",nor sign that it was ever present; instead, there are two different plates of "Court Dresses" (a Gentleman & a Lady), while the List specifies but one. An OCLC entry notes: "UCLA copy has no plate for A Knight; has two different plates for Court Dresses", which leads us to suspect that this 2nd edition was perhaps issued by Tabart without the Knight, as well as those issued without the second Court Dresses plate.
