        Wallenstein. A Drama in two parts. [bound with:] The Death of Wallenstein. A Tragedy in Five Acts.

      London: T. N. Longman and O. Rees, 1800 - 2 parts bound in one, octavo (208 × 118 mm). Early 20th-century brown morocco by Riviere, richly gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Bookplate of George Mason La Monte (1863–1927) businessman, philanthropist and Democratic politician; leather gilt book label of Walter Chrysler (1875–1940), founder of Chrysler Corporation. Extremities a little worn, joint splitting at the top, pale staining to covers from an earlier attempt to polish the binding, nevertheless a good copy: with the fly-title [a2], leaves [a4] (publishers' advertisement /cast list) and terminal advertisement leaf [P4] in part one; bound without the blank (or half-title?) to part two, but with the terminal advertisement leaves [P7] and [P8]. Stipple engraved portrait frontispiece of Wallenstein by Chapman. 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. G. v. Maaßen). – Gelegentlich gering fleckig; gutes Exemplar in schönen zeitgenössischen Einbänden. – Goed. VI 45, 2, 2; Haym, Romant. Schule S. 117 f. ausführlich. [Attributes: First Edition]

        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.

        Shakespeare Illustrated by an Assemblage of Portraits and Views; with Biographical Anecdotes for the Different Persons, and Descriptions of Places Mentioned: Adapted to the Whole Series of the Author's Dramas. To which are added Portraits of Actors, Editors, &c. Arranged, with Directions for their Insertion in any Edition

      London: G. Sidney, 1800. Early expanded edition of this collection of engravings of Shakespearean subjects, intended to be individually rebound into "any edition" of the plays, allowing readers to construct their own personalized extra-illustrated copies of Shakespeare. The engravings include portraits of notable Shakespearean editors (Alexander Pope, Thomas Hanmer), critics (Samuel Johnson, Elizabeth Montagu), actors (Richard Burbage, Will Kempe), historical figures (Julius Caesar, Henry IV, Richard III, Elizabeth I), and settings (Stratford-upon-Avon, Westminster Abbey, the Rialto). Each plate is accompanied by a page or more of text, providing the play, act, and scene related to the subject. The engravings are based on historical portraits and landscapes already available to the printers, so there are no original illustrations of characters invented by Shakespeare. The plates in this work first appeared in parts between 1789 and 1793, the first publication of the brothers Sylvester and Edward Harding. Before joining Edward to establish their book and print shop, Sylvester worked as an actor in a traveling troupe, an experience that may have suggested the Shakespearean theme. Shakespeare Illustrated capitalized on the contemporary vogue for extra-illustration, the practice of inserting extra material, from illustrations to autographs to manuscripts, into printed books to provide additional color and context. In 1803, Edward Harding became librarian to Queen Charlotte, and in this role he extra-illustrated many works of history "for her amusement" (DNB). Unlike the edition of the Hardings, which consisted of 150 plates in thirty parts, this expanded edition includes commentary on each image, sometimes quite pointed, as in the case of Cleopatra: "A woman of greater genius perhaps never existed: she conversed in almost every language then known, and displayed the greatest powers in her government; and it may be some palliation to her vices to add, that licentious manners and seductive arts were the only means left her to preserve her kingdom." A near-fine copy of a complete Shakespearean sourcebook, evidence of English reading and collecting practices at the turn of the nineteenth century. Two octavo volumes, modern three-quarter brown calf over green marbled boards, black morocco spine labels lettered in gilt, spine ruled and ornamented in gilt, new endpapers, all edges marbled. Separate engraved title page dated 1793 (from original publisher S&E Harding) bound after main title in Volume I. Illustrated with 158 full-page engraved plates. Armorial bookplate of Charles Banckerl on front pastedowns, binder's ticket on rear pastedown of Volume I. Scattered foxing, occasionally affecting images, text blocks uniformly embrowned, mended tear to margin of plate 17 (Nicholas Rowe), not affecting image.

        The Life of Major J.G. Semple Lisle;

      1800 - Containing a Faithful Narrative of his Alternate Vicissitudes of Splendor and Misfortune. Written by Himself. The Whole interspersed with Interesting Anecdotes and Authentic Accounts of Important Public Transactions. The Second Edition. Stipple-engraved portrait frontispiece. Offsetting from the portrait, light browning throughout, but overall very good in the publisher's boards, slightly rubbed and soiled, upper joint a little split towards the tail, some chipping of the spine at head and tail. xxii, errata leaf, 382pp. W. Stewart, Sabin 41421, ?Includes his adventures in South America, description of the Province of Rio Grande &c.?; Ferguson 317, ?The autobiography of this celebrated adventurer, including a full account of the mutiny of the Lady Shore in which he was carried as a convict to New South Wales, and of the adventures of the landing party in their journey to Rio de Janeiro.? Semple was the born in Ayrshire, the son of an exciseman, in 1776 he served briefly in America before being taken prisoner. He was ?relieved early in 1777, by Lord Percy, whose retirement from the Army his country may justly regret, and Sir Peter Parker, then commander at Rhode Island. [He] was soon after wounded; and was in consequence sent home from New York, in the Bridget of Liverpool.? He then was involved with Mrs. Eliza Gooch, the novelist - ?My amour with Mrs. Gooch having been related by the lady herself, in her Memoirs, though not quite correctly, I Ieave as it is. ? He then claims to have accompanied Frederick the Great in the campaign of 1778, to have been introduced the Catherine the Great, & ? to have accompanied Prince Potyomkin to the Crimea, and to have designed a uniform for the Russian Army.? [ODNB] In 1784 he was arrested for obtaining goods under false pretences and sentenced, in 1786, to seven years transportation. Released on condition of quitting England he moved to Paris, where he witnessed the execution of Louis XVI, returning to England shortly afterwards to avoid arrest. In 1795, returning to his old ways, he was again sentenced to transportation ?this time for defrauding tradesmen? [ibid.] His hopes of pardon being dashed, when scheduled to be shipped to Botany Bay, he melodramatically stabbed himself in Newgate - ? in my frenzy, I snatched up a round pointed breakfast knife, with which I made a blow at my breast; I struck too high, and the knife would not enter; but I repeated the stroke lower down, and plunged it to the handle in my body.? - and subsequently went on hunger strike. Having recovered he was dispatched to Australia on the Lady Jane Shore. Despite Semple's warnings of unrest amongst the troops onboard, mutiny broke out but he was allowed to leave in a boat with several others who would not make a common cause with the mutineers. The party eventually landed in South America and after a series of almost credible adventures Semple made his way to Tangiers via Lisbon and Gibraltar and there surrendered himself to the British Minister. He was sent back to England and committed to Tothill Fields prison, where at the time of the publication of his autobiography he was still held. ?Nothing further is known of him.? [Iibid.] A very nice copy of this hard-to-obtain life of a notorious scoundrel. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      London: T. Cadell, Jun. & W. Davies, 1800. Hardcover. Very good. xxxii, 88, [298] p. 23 cm. Engraved frontispiece of Tipu's Tiger. 2 fold-outs in Appendices. Bound in quarter green leather with marbled paper boards. New endpapers, repaired edges to frontispiece and title page. Dampstained bottom corners. Pages uncut towards rear. Some rough page edges from cutting. First fold-out has tear. Spot on title page of Appendix B. Tipu Sultan was the Muslim ruler of the Indian kingdom of Mysore from 1782 until he was defeated and killed by British troops in 1799. The frontispiece engraving of this volume shows Tipu's Tiger, originally a mechanical toy created for Tipu Sultan himself. In the toy, now exhibited in the Victoria and Albert Museum, the carved and painted wood casing represents a tiger savaging a near life-size European man. Mechanisms inside the tiger and man's bodies make one hand of the man move, emit a wailing sound from his mouth and grunts from the tiger. In addition a flap on the side of the tiger folds down to reveal the keyboard of a small pipe organ with 18 notes. The tiger was created for Tipu and makes use of his personal emblem of the tiger and expresses his hatred of his enemy, the British of the East India Company. The tiger was discovered in his summer palace after East India Company troops stormed Tipu's capital in 1799.Alexander Beatson (17581830) was an officer in the East India Company's service. As lieutenant, he served with the Guides in Lord Cornwallis's campaigns against Tippu Sultan. Eight years later, as a field officer, he was surveyor-general with the army under Lieutenant-General Harris, which captured Seringapatam in 1799. Major-General James Hanson Salmond (17661837) was an officer in the East India Company's Forces who went on to be Military Secretary to the East India Company.

Il a aussi voyagé en Europe: à Lyon, en Allemagne (1799) et à Milan (1812). ?Si sa carrière reste relativement discrète dans l?historiographie genevoise, c?est sans doute en raison du genre de peinture ?moins relevé? auquel il s?est adonné, privilégiant la gouache et la gravure aquarellée et faisant de rares incursions dans la peinture à la cire. Sa renommée est attestée par une clientèle prestigieuse, comptant l?Impératrice Joséphine et, dit-on, Lucien Bonaparte, le cardinal Fesch ou encore Catherine de Russie; les voyageurs se sont empressés dans son atelier, installé à Montbrillant dès 1812 et c?est aujourd?hui un paysagiste prisé sur le marché des vues genevoises ou alpestres. Rarement datées, ses oeuvres gardent pour l?instant le mystère de leur chronologie; . ?SIKART, Danielle Buyssens).Please notify before visiting to see a book. Prices are excl.
