        A New Law Dictionary; Comprehending A General Abridgment of the Law

      2011. Marriott, William. A New Law Dictionary; Comprehending A General Abridgment of the Law, on a More Extensive Plan than has hitherto been attempted: Containing not only the Explanation of the Terms, but also the Law Itself, Both with Regard to Theory and Practice in which are Incorporated the Statutes and Adjudged Cases down to the Present Time. Including all the Acts Passed the Last Session of Parliament Essentially Useful to Barristers, Solicitors, Justices of the Peace, Attornies, Solicitors, Students in the Law, Clergymen, Merchants, Traders, Parish Officers of Every Denomination, &c. Originally published: London: Printed for W. and J. Stratford, 1797-98. 4 Volumes. 2,580 pp. Reprinted 2011 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. With a new introduction by Bryan A. Garner, President, LawProse, Inc. ISBN-13: 9781616190439. ISBN-10: 1616190434. Hardcover. New. * Reprint of the rare original edition. "This four-volume work was the culmination of an 18th-century bloodline that began in 1729 with the appearance of Giles Jacob's New Law-Dictionary, which appeared in 11 editions through 1782. Jacob started a new genre: the law dictionary that was also an "abridgement"--that is, an alphabetically arranged restatement of the whole law, subject by subject. (...) His four-volume set (as ultimately published) has remained one of the most obscure law dictionaries ever. Copies are extremely rare today: few libraries, even at the institutions that have specifically built up their holdings in law dictionaries, possess one. I, for example, was never able to examine a copy until the page proofs of this reprint were made available to me. My guess is that no more than 100 were printed. Fewer than a dozen copies are known to exist. The book has therefore received scant attention." --From the Introduction by Bryan A. Garner.

        Makrojannis defending himself at the Piraeeus"

      Philhellenic: Munich H. Kohler c1835. Tinted lithograph, as issued, of Yannis Makriyannis from Peter von Hess's Album of Greek Heroism, or the Deliverance of Greece / Griechenlands Befreiung ... in XXXIX Bildern.[ First edition.] within decorative borders incorporating captions in Greek, German, French & English. The borders are decorated with guns, swords and helmets with the Greek flag to the left; on the right a crucifix and other emblems of the Christian church; at the top Turkish weapons, laid down, with a fez ,and below, sails and naval instruments. The image shows Makroyannis with knife in hand with a Turk at his mercy; in the background can be seen the Acropolis of Athens. Yannis Makriyannis 1797–1864. After Athens was captured by Ibrahim Pasha in June 1826, Makriyannis helped organise the defence of the Acropolis, and became the provisional commander of the garrison after the death of the commander, Yannis Gouras. He managed to repel a fierce assault against the Odeon of Herodes Atticus on 7 October, and during the defence of the Acropolis, he sustained heavy injures three times, to the head and to the neck.[2] These wounds troubled him for the remainder of his life, but they did not dissuade him from taking part in the last phase of the war: in the spring of 1827 he took part in the battles of Piraeus and the battle of Analatos. Image bright and clean; a few light spots to blank borders. Peter( Heinrich Lambert} von Hess 1792-1871, was a German painter, known for historic paintings, especially of the Napoleonic Wars and the Greek War of Independence. In 1833, at Ludwig's request, he accompanied Otto of Greece to the newly formed Kingdom of Greece, where at Athens he gathered materials for pictures of the war of liberation. He stayed nine months in Greece, interviewing heroes and eyewitnesses of the 1821 revolution. His first- hand knowledge of the heroes gives power to his work. He drew 39 historical persons The sketches which he then made were placed, forty in number, in the Pinakothek, after being copied in wax on a large scale by Nilsen, in the northern arcades of the Hofgarten at Munich, [sadly now destroyed]. It should be noted that Hess was not present during the Revolution; the paintings are representations of reported events. many are of Greek victories, or of heroic deaths of the Greek leaders. Not in Blackmer ,Droulia or Contominas. Philhellenic Yannis Makriyannis Battle of Piraeus

Very minor soiling, some offsetting from plates. About very good. The author spent over a year in Constantinople as chaplain to the British embassy for the Ottoman Empire, from March 1794 to October 1795. He was already of some note as a writer, and this work "was well regarded in its time, [and] helped to awaken interest in the ancient manuscripts to be found there, and contributed to the debate on the location of ancient Troy" (DNB). Besides descriptions of the city, Dallaway travelled with British ambassador Linton to find the site of ancient Troy. The handsome plates show views of Turkey, a Turkish woman, and various ruins including the Tomb of Apollo, and the Plain of Troy. ESTC T67772. ABBEY 392. BLACKMER 441. ATABEY 308.
