         The ships Erebus and Terror in the Arctic]. [England?, ca. 1850?]. Oil painting on canvas (65.5 x 91 cm), showing 2 ships in a rough sea amid dangerous rocks and ice. Later mounted on another canvas and stretched over a wooden frame, with a handwritten note about the painting pasted on the back.

      - Cf. Howgego, 1800-1850, P9, R27 & F21. A mid-19th-century oil painting depicting two ships (3-masted barks) in a rough sea amid dangerous rocky and icy cliffs, mountains and outcroppings. Pasted to the back is an old slip of paper with a note (the parts of the text in parentheses are lost, but have been filled in based on an earlier transcription): "The sailing ships ('Erebus' and 'Terror') passing through the Davis Straig(ht) in 1846 [the 6 later "corrected" to 7]. It was on this expedition that Sir John Franklin discovered the North West Passage, and in which he lost his life". In fact Franklin sailed these two ships through Davis Strait in 1845, passed on through Lancaster Sound in search of a Northwest Passage and spent the winter on Beechey Island. In 1846 he and his expedition made their way through (using the modern names) Peel Sound and Franklin Strait into McClintock Channel, where they got caught in the ice near King William Island. Most of the crew died there, including Franklin in 1847. A few made it on foot to the mainland but were unable to reach any outpost. The last died in 1848. Since no one who saw the ships in these waters survived, the anonymous artist who made the present painting appears to have turned to an 1847 painting of the same ships by John Wilson Carmichael in London, though he did not copy it. Carmichael had earlier made a drawing of an expedition in search of the Northwest Passage by William Edward Parry (who made three expeditions in the years 1819 to 1825, each with two ships), but in 1847 he used parts of his existing Arctic scene as models for the composition of a new painting showing an Antarctic scene of James Clark Ross's voyage with the ships Erebus and Terror in 1842: "'Erebus' and 'Terror' in the Antarctic". Carmichael's drawing and painting survive at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. The central ship in the present painting follows that in Carmichael's painting quite closely and the second ship more distantly. The rocks and ice are similar in general appearance and arrangement but quite different in detail.With some restorations along the edges of the painting and a small scuffmark near the foot toward the left, but generally in good condition.

         Narrative of Mons. de Chaumereix, a naval officer, who escaped from the massacres of Aurai & Vannes, after the expedition of Quiberon. To which are added, some observations on the public opinion in Brittany. Translated from the French, by the Rev. Charles Lefebvre, Teacher of the French Language, Witton-Le-Wear.

      Sunderland: printed for the translator by James Graham, and sold by L. Pennington, Durham; William Charnley, Newcastle; W. Barnes, North Shields; and W. Elstob, Stockton. 1800 - 50pp. 8vo. Uncut; some foxing & occasional browning. Disbound. ESTC T114266, BL and York University only. During the French Revolution the peasants in the department of Vendée remained Royalist and first rose against the revolutionary National Convention in 1793. On June 27, 1795, a British fleet landed 3,600 French émigrés on the Quiberon Peninsula, Brittany, where they joined thousands of other Royalists. But they had no positive leadership, and the Revolutionary army sent to the region destroyed the Vendée 'army' in a series of engagements. About 700 rebels were identified as émigrés and summarily executed; 1,800 returned to England, including Chaumareix who although imprisoned managed to escape and evaded recapture until 20th September when he reached the English squadron under Sir John Warren. His account was first published in London in 1795, although with a different title wording, and this may be a variant translation. The translator Charles Lefebvre was most likely a French émigré, stirred to have his own version printed and published locally.

         Historie der boecaniers, of vrybuyters van America.Amsterdam, Nicolaas ten Hoorn, 1700. 3 parts (paginated as 2) in 1 volume. 4to. With an engraved title-page, a folding engraved map of South and Central America, and 7 engraved plates (1 folding). Red (goatskin) morocco (ca. 1920), with richly gold tooled turn-ins, double fillets on board edges, gilt edges, by the French Binders of Garden City, N.Y., the fourth incarnation of Robert Hoe's famous Club Bindery, which almost single-handedly pioneered fine binding in America.

      - Alden & Landis 700/11; Sabin 23469; cf. Howgego, to 1800, E-39 (other editions); cf. H. de la Fontaine Verwey, "The ship's surgeon Exquemelin and his book on the buccaneers", in: Quaerendo IV (1974), pp. 109-131; for the bindery: T. Boss & M. Antonetti, Bound to be the best: The Club Bindery. Catalogue of an exhibition at the Grolier Club (2004). Exquemelin (ca. 1645-1707) began his career in service of the French West India Company on a 1666 voyage to Tortuga in the Caribbean. There he went into the service of the notorious Welsh privateer Henry Morgan. He returned to Europe ca. 1674 and made a new career as a reputable surgeon in Amsterdam, where he wrote the present book. The text is divided into three parts. The first tells of the French voyage to the West Indies in 1666 and describes the circumstances there. The second recounts the dreadful deeds of the Caribbean pirates, especially François l'Olonnais and Henry Morgan, and the third describes the burning and looting of Panama City by Morgan's unruly men.In 1895 a group of Grolier Club members led by Robert Hoe, brought some of the most skilled European (mostly French) binding craftsmen to America and founded the Club Bindery. Its work "surpassed - in design, forwarding, and finishing - anything that had been produced in the United States until then" (Antonetti). After Robert Hoe’s dead the bindery reincarnated as the French Binders of Garden City, New York. With a water stain in the lower right corner throughout, a couple smudges and specks, and the map with a small restored tear, otherwise a good copy. Some very minor wear along the board edges and a bit more noticeably along the hinges and the raised bands, otherwise the binding is in very good condition.

Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Corners slightly rubbed. Some foxing thoughout book. Slight water damage to some of the text pages. Félix-Archimède Pouchet (August 26, 1800, in Rouen, France to December 6, 1872) was a French naturalist and a leading proponent of spontaneous generation of life from non-living materials, and as such an opponent of Louis Pasteur's germ theory. He was the father of Georges Pouchet (18331894), a professor of comparative anatomy. From 1828 he was director of the Rouen Museum of Natural History and the Rouen Jardin des Plantes. Later, in 1838, he became professor at the School of Medicine at Rouen. His major scientific work Hétérogénie was published in 1859. He also wrote a layperson's encyclopedia The Universe, published in 1870, which gives an overview of the sciences, but in which Pouchet ridicules Louis Pasteur's theories (calling them panspermism) and atomic theory. In 1847 Felix-Archimede Pouchet effectively launched the study of the physiology of cytology. (Wikipedia).

         Scenes of the Sanoya House at Yoshiwara.

      1800 - Watercolour on silk. Horizontal scroll measuring ca. 35.5x500cm, rich brocade mounting on the outside (minor wear), gold leaf paper embossed with flower design inside. Overall in very good condition. Edo, ca. The present scroll shows scenes of geisha from the Sanoya house in the Yoshiwara, the main brothel area north of Asakusa in Edo. It portrays the rituals and customs of the courtesans both inside and outside the house, from washing to putting on make-up, entertaining guests, playing the shamisen etc. Interestingly, people are not drawn to scale, which means that the important characters are larger than their young attendants (kamuro) or passers-by. This makes for a pleasing shift in perspectives as you view the scroll. We have tentatively ascribed the scenes to the Sanoya house based on the crest on the curtain (noren) in front of the entrance.

First edition in English, following the German edition of the same year, and combining the work of two great figures of the Romantic era: Coleridge and Schiller. The latter had a profound influence on Coleridge, who translated Schiller here into English blank verse, and "it is clearly from the two great plays at either end of [Schiller's] career – Die Räuber and Wallenstein – that Coleridge learnt most" (Matthew Scott, "Coleridge and Schiller", in The Oxford Handbook of Samuel Taylor Coleridge, p. 542). In a letter to Robert Southey, written as early as 1794, Coleridge wrote "My God! Southey! Who is this Schiller? This convulser of the heart?" [Attributes: First Edition]

      Berlin, Friedrich Maurer, 1797-1800. - Erste Ausgabe der amüsanten frühromantischen Satirensammlung von Tiecks Schwager, mit zahlreichen erotischen Passagen, geistreicher Kritik am Kulturbetrieb, Ausfällen gegen Philosophen wie Fichte und Schelling sowie gegen Iffland und sein Theater. – Tieck schrieb die Einleitung zu Band 1 und die Theater- und Literatursatire 'Die verkehrte Welt', die auf ein gleichnamiges Stück in Weises 'Zittauischem Theatrum' zurückgeht. Sie "richtet sich ebenso gegen den Utilitarismus der Aufklärung wie gegen den trivialen Geschmack des zeitgenössischen Publikums . Die an Aristophanes, Fletcher, Ben Jonson und Gozzi geschulte Technik der Illusionsdurchbrechung und des Aus-der-Rolle-Fallens wird zum Motor der Satire . Das Paradoxon wird zum funktionalen Bestandteil der Bühne . Aufklärung und Romantik verhalten sich zueinander wie Prosa und Vers, satirische Szenen stehen neben rein poetischen" (KNLL). Für den Abdruck in den 'Schriften' wurde 'Die verkehrte Welt', wie die meisten Schauspiele von Tieck, überarbeitet. Enthält außerdem: Geschichte eines Mannes welcher mit seinem Verstande auf das Reine gekommen – Sechs Stunden aus Finks Leben – Die Witzlinge – Der Besessene – Die Reise durch das Gotfriedland. „Vollständige Exemplare mit allen 3 Teilen gehören zu den allergrößten Seltenheiten" (C.

         Poetisches Journal. Erster Jahrgang, erstes (und zweites) Stück (alles Erschienene) in 1 Band. Titel, 248 S., Titel, S. 259-492, 1 Bl. Ankündigung von Fr. Schlegel. Schöner Halblederbd d. Z. mit 2 blauen Rückenschildern und reicher Rückenvergoldung.

      Jena, Friedrich Frommann, 1800. - Seltene erste Ausgabe der kurzlebigen Zeitschrift, deren Beiträge zumeist vom Herausgeber selbst stammen. "Wie die Gebrüder Schlegel sich im 'Athenäum' ein Sprachrohr für ihre literarischen Arbeiten schufen, so war auch L. Tieck mit dem 'Poetischen Journal' auf bestem Wege, sich ein Organ für den eigenen Hausgebrauch zu schaffen, das der Kunst und der Poesie gewidmet sein sollte . Im Geiste der Schlegel verurteilte er ‚die literarische Pöbelherrschaft in Deutschland‘, deren Kritik auch vor Goethes 'Wilhelm Meister' und 'Hermann und Dorothea' nicht halt macht und 'die Verworrenheit eines Zeitalters beurteilen lehrt, in welchem dergleichen Absurditäten möglich sind'" (Kirchner, Geschichte des deutschen Zeitschriftenwesens, 1958, Bd I, S. 256). Das 'Journal' enthält neben der Übersetzung eines Lustspiels von Ben Jonson die beiden wichtigen 'Briefe über W. Shakspeare', die Tiecks fortwährende Shakespeare-Studien dokumentieren. "Die Freundschaftssonette, die den Band beschließen, sind Ausdruck der Integration dieser lyrischen Gattung in Tiecks romantische Dichtung und – fast zum letzten Mal! – der gemeinsamen Zielsetzung der Berliner und Jenaer Romantik . Der Aufsatz (des Indologen Fr. Majer) 'Ueber die mythologischen Dichtungen der Indier' gilt als bedeutende Vorstufe für die romantische Indologie" (Paulin, Metzler, S. 58). Weitere Beiträge Tiecks wenden sich in "teils polemisch-satirischer, teils in humorvoller und witziger Form gegen die Aufklärung im Sinne Nicolais, gegen das Rezensionswesen und das Theater der Gegenwart" (Kirchner, S. 257). In der nirgends wieder abgedruckten Einleitung formuliert Tieck das Wesen der Poesie aus (früh-)romantischer Sicht. – Wie immer teils stärker gebräunt und mit Leimschatten, dennoch schönes Exemplar. – Goed. VI 38, 57; Diesch 1302; Kirchner 4629; Hauswedell/Voigt Abb. 240. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

         Piccolomini, or the First Part of Wallenstein, a Drama in Five Acts ? [bound with:] The Death of Wallenstein. A Tragedy in Five Acts

      Printed for N.T. Longman and O. Rees, By G. Woodfall, London 1800 - First edition of Coleridge's English translation. Engraved portrait. [iv], 214; [ii], [ii, general title], 157, [1, ads] pp., with half-title to first part and general title ("Wallenstein. A Drama in Two Parts") bound with second part. 8vo. The first English edition of Schiller's Wallenstein, set in Germany during the Thirty Years War, and translated by Samuel Taylor Coleridge from a manuscript copy of the first German edition of 1799. Coleridge completed much of the translation - a free and poetic translation in blank verse - at Lamb's home in London, seated at his desk in "a voluminous five-penny floral dressing-gown decorated with hieroglyphics ? looking suspiciously 'like a conjuror,' according to Lamb" (Holmes, Coleridge: Early Visions, p. 261). The translation, which omitted the first part of Schiller's trilogy (Wallenstein's Camp), was done in part to capitalize on the contemporary fashion for Schiller, whose verse-drama The Robbers Coleridge had long admired. It was one of many of Coleridge's translation schemes hatched during his time abroad studying the language and literature of Germany. "In the event, the project was a financial disaster, earning him only £50 in advances, while Longman lost £250 on the combined editions" (ibid, p. 267). Despite that, Coleridge "was proud of his work, and long afterwards described it as 'a specimen of my happiest attempt, during the prime manhood of my intellect, before I had been buffeted by adversity or crossed by fatality" (ibid, p. 268). ESTC T61110 & T61109; Wise, Coleridge 16 & 17 Period half calf and marbled boards, green morocco spine label. Some foxing to portrait and first few leaves Engraved portrait.

         蝦夷国全圖. [Ezo no Kuni Zenzu]. [Complete Map of Ezo].

      (circa1800). Large ink and water colour manuscript map of Ezo, modern day Hokkaido, showing the northeastern tip of Honshu, Manchuria as a large landmass along the lower border, and the island of Sakhalin. The Russian territory of Kamchatska is also shown. Drawn onto two sheets the sheets have professionally laid down onto a single washi sheet. There is a little lack of continuity in a few places where the lines on the map don't quite match and two holes along folds. Some inoffensive worming mainly at margins, an attractive map. 53.7 x 94cm. This map is an "underground" manuscript copy of one of the five maps published to accompany the highly controversial Japanese book 'Sangoku tsüran zusetsu' by Hayashi Shihei. Published in 1785 this work described the geography and customs of three countries - Kankoku (Korea), Yezo or Ezo (present day Hokkaido), and Ryükyü (present day Okinawa). At the time of its publication Ha Yezo was only partially occupied by the Tokugawa government and although from 1609 Ryükyü was in reality under the control of the Shimazu clan in Satsuma (present Kagoshima Prefecture), the Shimazu clan allowed it to be an independent country superficially. Hayashi wrote in this book that he was especially concerned of the growing Russian presence in east Asia, and believed there was a need to strengthen Japan's defences. Hayashi's map of Ezo, is believed to be one of the first descriptions of the island in Japanese literature--a testament to his belief that Japan needed to strengthen their forces on the northern frontier.In his notes on this map of Ezo or Hokkaido, Hayashi discusses the sea lanes indicated by dotted lines and notes "Since, in recent years, men of Orosha [Russians] have taken possession of the territory east of Tartary, this land is called Orosha, or Kamusasuka.... Also since the Russians all wear red coats, the residents of Ezo call it Red Ezo in their dialect."Following the publication of 'Sangoku tsüran zusetsu' the authorities ordered the banning of the publication and the destruction of the woodblocks used to print the book and maps. Hayashi Shihei was imprisoned as his work was regarded as an offence against Japan's seclusion policies of the time. He died the following year. However Japanese interest in the outside world, and in Hayashi Shihei's work continued throughout the Edo period and although very few copies of the published work were in existence "underground" manuscript copies were made and passed around among trusted friends.
