About this book Introduction essay by James Hannay and is printed and published by The London Printing and Publishing Co. Descriptive Letterpress by Rev. J. Trusler and E. F. Roberts. William Hogarth FRSA (10 November 1697 - 26 October 1764) was an English painter, printmaker, pictorial satirist, social critic, and editorial cartoonist who has been credited with pioneering western sequential art. His work ranged from realistic portraiture to comic strip-like series of pictures called "modern moral subjects". Knowledge of his work is so pervasive that satirical political illustrations in this style are often referred to as "Hogarthian". The spread of Hogarth's prints throughout Europe, together with the depiction of popular scenes from his prints in faked Hogarth prints, influenced Continental book illustration through the 18th and early 19th century, especially in Germany and France. He also influenced many caricaturists of the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries. Hogarth's influence lives on today as artists continue to draw i … [Click Below for Full Description]

X,242 pp.First Dutch edition; first published in English in the Proceedings of the Association for promoting the discovery of the interior parts of Africa. London 1798. - 'The African Association was founded in 1788. Its activities mark the beginning of African exploration in a systematic way, as well as the furthering of British trade and political prestige on that continent. This association was later merged into the Royal Geographical Society. The first concern of the African Association was the River Niger - where was its source and what was the direction of its flow, etc. The first four expeditions were unfortunate for the leaders, Ledyard, Lucas, Horneman, and Houghton, all of whom either died while enroute or were murdered by the fanatical Moors. The fifth, that of Mungo Park, was rich in geographical results, though he too died on his second expedition' (Cox I, p.388). This book contains the travel-accounts in Africa of Daniel Hougton (1790-91) and of Mungo Park (1795-97, his first expedition); with geographical explanation by James Rennell. - Good copy; very rare.Gay 2788 (English ed.); Not in Tiele.

MILLARD FILLMORE
MILLARD FILLMORE (1800-1874). The Thirteenth President, Fillmore served as comptroller of the State of New York from January 1848 to February 1849. He resigned to become Vice President, and upon Zachary Taylor’s death in July 1850, Fillmore became President. Manuscript book. 5 ½” x 8”. 110 numbered pages. Europe. 1866. A manuscript book in the handwriting of former President Millard Fillmore. He recounts the money his wife spent on their 1866 European vacation, as well as the places they visited. He signed the inside front cover using his wife’s name, “Mrs. Millard Fillmore At Paris, May 18, 1866”. In Fillmore’s handwriting on the very first page, he writes about “Bonnets”, “Shawls”, “Handkerchiefs” and “Laces”. A few pages later, under the heading “Milliners”, Fillmore writes that his wife visited “Mm. Rivet 52 Notre Dame de Lorette By Miss Soule” and “Ms Diels 23 Boulevard des Caperciaes by Nellie Bam”. There are similar pages for “Dresses & Dressmakers”, “Shawls” “Laces” and “Jewelry”. The majority of pages are headed, but not filled in. There are also newspaper printings from a religious sermon pasted into the early pages; some of the titles include “Every Man’s Friend”, “The Only Savior” and “Shut Out Of Heaven”. This manuscript book was an artifact of their second European tour. The book is in good condition. The spine is falling apart – part of the spine strip has already detached – and many of the early pages are in the process of detaching from the binding.

BILLARDIERE, Jacques-Julien Houtou de La
London: for John Stockdale, 1800. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. In 1785, King Louis XVI appointed Jean Francois la Perouse to lead a world expedition that, hopefully, would supplement, and ultimately complete, the voyages begun by James Cook years earlier. Perouse greatly admired Cook though thought his maps and discoveries were incomplete. The voyage took him and his crew to South America, California, Alaska, Eastern Asia, and south Pacific Islands, where the voyage ultimately ended in shipwreck with no members of the crew to be found. French scientist Jacques de Labillardiere was a member of voyage that set sail in 1791 in hopes of locating Perouse and his crew. To no avail, Perouse and crew were not found; however, Billardiere was able to gather an abundance of zoological, botanical, and geological specimens while traveling in Oceania. His book 'Voyage in Search of Perouse' was an important book describing the customs and languages of local Australian tribes. This volume of the 1800 first edition of 'Voyage in Search' includes an incredible folding map along with engravings of Australian tribes and plants. [Attributes: First Edition]

Gränicher, Samuel (1758-1813):
Switzerland 1800. Drawing: 204 x 141mm: Sheet: 255 x 173mm. Ink, stencil and watercolor on paper, with golden inner-frame. Signed. Artist of Swiss origins, painter and engraver Samuel Gränicher moved to Dresden around 1790. He became famous for painting animals and landscapes and, at the end of his career, he also published a collection of drawings of Swiss costumes. Very little other artwork belonging to him is known. He also drew two other well-known portraits, that of writer Theodor Körner and that of scientist Leonhard Euler. In past years, one other portrait signed by him has emerged in auctions, depicting a side-profile of a young boy. The present portrait could be a later profile take on the same young boy, now turned a young man, the resemblence is evident. It is unkown who this man could be. The portrait was not known until now.

AFRICA - SENEGAL] PELLETAN, [Jean Gabriel]
Ve. Panckoucke An IX [1800], Paris. Pelletan served as the director of the Compagnie de Sénégal, the administrative company for the colony, in 1787 and 1788, though the present work was composed from memory while Pelletan was imprisoned in 1793 at the height of La Terreur. The "Mémoire" provides geographical descriptions of the western coast of the African continent as well as an account of imports and exports, the latter chiefly rubber and slaves (Pelletan mentions 1000 to 1200, perhaps for the years under his administration, prior to the suppression of the slave trade). The second half of the work deals primarily in describing the ravages of the slave trade on the country and it people: "It is without a doubt that the abolition of the slave trade will completely change the face of the region, devastated for centuries by ceaseless warfare, crippled by the enslavement of portions of its peoples, and depopulated by this horrific commerce conducted by degraded persons and greedy European merchants+ who can only satisfy their avarice at the price of the blood and freedom of these miserable Africans" (our translation; pp. 48-9). Pelletan also dedicates brief sections to the moral and physical attributes of the Senegalese inhabitants, as well as a description of their homes and pottery, before proposing a detailed outline for a new,m post-slave trade colonial government for the region. (See George E. Brooks, "Western Africa and Cabo Verde, 1790s-1830s" (2010), p. 13; and Paul Masson, "Marseille et la Colonisation Française" (1906), pp. 231-2.).

MILLARD FILLMORE
MILLARD FILLMORE (1800-1874). The Thirteenth President, Fillmore served as comptroller of the State of New York from January 1848 to February 1849. He resigned to become Vice President, and upon Zachary Taylor's death in July 1850, Fillmore became President. Manuscript book. 5 ½" x 8". 110 numbered pages. Europe. 1866. A manuscript book in the handwriting of former President Millard Fillmore. He recounts the money his wife spent on their 1866 European vacation, as well as the places they visited. He signed the inside front cover using his wife's name, "Mrs. Millard Fillmore At Paris, May 18, 1866". In Fillmore's handwriting on the very first page, he writes about "Bonnets", "Shawls", "Handkerchiefs" and "Laces". A few pages later, under the heading "Milliners", Fillmore writes that his wife visited "Mm. Rivet 52 Notre Dame de Lorette By Miss Soule" and "Ms Diels 23 Boulevard des Caperciaes by Nellie Bam". There are similar pages for "Dresses & Dressmakers", "Shawls" "Laces" and "Jewelry". The majority of pages are headed, but not filled in. There are also newspaper printings from a religious sermon pasted into the early pages; some of the titles include "Every Man's Friend", "The Only Savior" and "Shut Out Of Heaven". This manuscript book was an artifact of their second European tour. The book is in good condition. The spine is falling apart - part of the spine strip has already detached - and many of the early pages are in the process of detaching from the binding. The first few pages also show damage, perhaps from where a newspaper was once glued over and then removed. A … [Click Below for Full Description]

Switzerland, 1800. Drawing: 204 x 141mm: Sheet: 255 x 173mm. Ink, stencil and watercolor on paper, with golden inner-frame. Signed. Artist of Swiss origins, painter and engraver Samuel Gränicher moved to Dresden around 1790. He became famous for painting animals and landscapes and, at the end of his career, he also published a collection of drawings of Swiss costumes. Very little other artwork belonging to him is known. He also drew two other well-known portraits, that of writer Theodor Körner and that of scientist Leonhard Euler. In past years, one other portrait signed by him has emerged in auctions, depicting a side-profile of a young boy. The present portrait could be a later profile take on the same young boy, now turned a young man, the resemblence is evident. It is unkown who this man could be. The portrait was not known until now.

In the 1798 one-volume first edition of Lyrical Ballads, the founders of the Romantic Movement rejected classical principles of beauty and formal style, choosing instead to write in the language of ordinary people and elevate their lives. The work proved to be a financial disaster and was sent back by Longman to Wordsworth for revision. "This was fortunate for Wordsworth. and fortunate for posterity." For this 1800 edition contains the first appearance of Wordsworth's "famous Preface defining his theory of poetry. expressed in such phrases as that poetry 'takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility' and 'is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings.'"

BILLARDIERE, Jacques-Julien Houtou de La
for John Stockdale. 1800 1ed La Perouse Voyage Pacific Islands New Zealand Shipwreck MAP Billardiere In 1785, King Louis XVI appointed Jean Francois la Perouse to lead a world expedition that, hopefully, would supplement, and ultimately complete, the voyages begun by James Cook years earlier. Perouse greatly admired Cook though thought his maps and discoveries were incomplete. The voyage took him and his crew to South America, California, Alaska, Eastern Asia, and south Pacific Islands, where the voyage ultimately ended in shipwreck with no members of the crew to be found. French scientist Jacques de Labillardiere was a member of voyage that set sail in 1791 in hopes of locating Perouse and his crew. To no avail, Perouse and crew were not found; however, Billardiere was able to gather an abundance of zoological, botanical, and geological specimens while traveling in Oceania. His book Voyage in Search of Perouse was an important book describing the customs and languages of local Australian tribes. This volume of the 1800 first edition of Voyage in Search includes an incredible folding map along with engravings of Australian tribes and plants.

They believe the cover is some type of animal suede but due to it being from the 1800s and fragile, they could not tell me more without testing. There is NO COPYWRITE DATE. There is a vintage card inside of the book with the name Mrs. S. Frank Shattuck on it. I do not know a history on this person, but id like it to stay with the book so I will include it.
