        THE POEMS OF ALLAN RAMSAY . . . TO WHICH ARE PREFIXED, A LIFE OF THE AUTHOR . . . AND REMARKS ON HIS POEMS, FROM A LARGE VIEW OF THEIR MERITS

      London: Printed by A. Strahan for T. Cadell Jun. and W. Davies, 1800. A new edition, corrected and enlarged n. This is a handsomely bound collection of poems by a major figure in 18th century Scottish literary culture. Of humble origin, Ramsay (1686-1758) was apprenticed to an Edinburgh wig maker before becoming a bookseller, the founder of a prototypical literary club called the Easy Club, the editor of an important Scots verse collection called "The Tea-Table Miscellany," and in general a promoter of Scots poetry and poets. He was also a renowned poet himself. The present collection divides his works by type: serious, elegiac, comic, satiric, epigrammatic, pastoral, lyric, epistolary, and fabular. His devotion to all things Scots led Ramsay to write much of his poetry in a Scots dialect, and copious footnotes and a glossary are provided to assist the reader. The most attractive unsigned period bindings boast extremely delicate and intricate gilt tooling, and are obviously the work of a skilled craftsman.. 213 x 130 mm. (8 3/8 x 5 1/8"). Two volumes. The life of Ramsay by the editor, George Chalmers; "Remarks on the Genius and Writings of Allan Ramsay" by A. F. Tytler, Lord Woodhouselee. A new edition, corrected and enlarged. VERY ATTRACTIVE CONTEMPORARY RED STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, ELABORATELY GILT, covers with wide frame formed by multiple plain and decorative gilt rules, raised bands, spines densely gilt in scallop-edged compartments filled by large, complex fleuron, intricately gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With woodcut head- and tailpieces, engraved frontispiece portrait, engraved folding facsimile, and one engraved vignette in text. Front pastedown with engraved armorial bookplate of James Banks Stanhope (probably the person by that name who lived from 1821-1904 and was a member of Parliament for North Lincolnshire from 1858-62). Martin, 251; ESTC T-143025. Spines uniformly a little darkened, just a hint of rubbing to joints and corners, occasional minor foxing (a bit more prominent on opening and closing leaves and on the two plates), one leaf with one-inch chip to head margin (no loss), other trivial imperfections, but still QUITE A PRETTY SET IN EXCELLENT CONDITION, clean and fresh internally, and in bindings with lustrous boards and only insignificant wear.This is a handsomely bound collection of poems by a major figure in 18th century Scottish literary culture.

        Reize van Aleppo naar Jeruzalem, op Paasschen, in 't jaar 1698.Utrecht, Willem van Poolsum, 1705. 4to. With engraved frontispiece and 9 engraved plates (including 5 folding). Later half vellum.

      STCN (7 copies); cf. Atabey 784; Howgego, to 1800, P117; for the author see: Butlin, "Maundrell, Henry (bap. 1665, d. 1701)", in: ODNB (online). First edition of the Dutch translation of an account of a journey from Aleppo to Jerusalem and back by the British clergyman Henry Maundrell. The work was partially published to bring up to date Sandys's famous Relation of a journey (1610), which was still very popular. However, "Maundrell's account is quite different from that of Sandys, and is a major work in its own right, giving detailed descriptions of the life and landscapes of Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine, including the agricultural practices of the regions and places encountered, in addition to descriptions of places of religious significance. The factual accounts of the relict features of the ancient worlds are of interest and value, and they are accompanied by careful measurements and plans of major sites such as Baalbek" (Butlin).Browned, lower outer corner of title-page restored, some occasional foxing and mostly marginal stains. Binding rubbed along the extremities, sides scratched.

        An Account of an Embassy to the Kingdom of Ava, Sent by the Governor-General of India in the Year 1795.

      - London, G. and W. Nichol, and J. Wright, 1800. Large 4to. Contemporary calf, modern reback, covers with gilt-ruled triple fillets, turn ins ornamented in gilt, marbled endpapers; pp. [iii]-xxii (bound without half-title), 503, 2 folding engraved maps, 28 engraved plates (a few folding, see below); extremities expertly restored; light marginal offsetting from endpapers; internally, apart from occasional brown spotting to text and plates, a good and clean copy. First edition of one of the first monographs in the English language written on Burma, superbly illustrated with plates of costumes, customs, architecture and arts, many by the Company-trained Bengali artist Singey Bey, and a suite of 8 botanical plates of the plants selected by the President of the Royal Society. 'In 1795 Symes was sent by the governor-general, John Shore, to the court of King Bodawpaya of Burma, to try to improve political and commercial relations, and also to confirm whether the French were actively courting the Burmese as they were rumoured to be doing elsewhere in Asia. Border tensions had recently escalated when Burmese troops had pursued Arakanese rebels into British territories and then refused to leave until the rebels were handed over. The embassy was counted a success, for Symes returned with signed documents which the British believed would open Burmese markets to British and Indian traders, and the French threat was shown to be largely illusory. These agreements, which fell short of what might properly be called a treaty, allowed British traders to purchase Burmese wood, instituted a procedure for addressing merchant grievances, and, provided import duties were paid, exempted British goods from inland customs and duties. Symes wrote of his seven months in Burma - which took him from Rangoon to the capital at Amarapura - in An Account of an Embassy to the Kingdom of Ava Sent by the Governor-General of India in 1795 (1800), one of the first detailed accounts of the country written in English. In just over 500 pages, it addressed the history, geography, culture, and economics of Burma, and the text was accompanied by illustrations and maps. It painted a generally favourable impression of Burma, emphasizing its civility, culture, and stability, while also hinting at the Burmese court's suspicions of the British' (ODNB). There seems to be confusion about the number of plates in this book. The Directions to the Binder list 27 plates, however, the Shoemandoo plate consists of a view and a plan on two separate sheets, which results in 28 plates. However, there are as well copies known with only 25 plates, including one authorial presentation copy, which has been in the trade. Cordier, B. I., t. I, 445. Cox, t. I, p. 309. Howgego, S200.

With 2 folding maps engraved by D. Veelwaard (ca. 32 x 24 cm and 43 x 40 cm), a woodcut of a pyramid and some tables in text. Modern half vellum.

      Cox I, p. 394; Howgego, to 1800, B170; Ibrahim-Hilmy I, p. 91; cf: Atabey 156; Blackmer 219-220. The rare Dutch translation of an important work, containing the earliest information on Darfur (Sudan). William George Browne (1768-1813), ''inspired by Bruce's travels, went to Egypt in 1792 hoping to explore the oases in the eastern Sahara and to journey to the source of the White Nile. He reached El Fashur in Darfur and was the first Englishman to explore the temple of Jupiter Ammon at the Oasis of Siwa. These deserts were not explored again until 1848 when Bayle St. John travelled through them. Browne was the first European to describe Darfur, which he reached with a Sudanese caravan in 1793. He was imprisoned there by the Sultan of Darfur. In 1796 he reached Egypt again by caravan and eventually returned to England via Syria and Constantinople. From 1800 to 1802 Browne travelled again in Turkey and the Levant. Some information gained at that time was published in Walpole's Memoirs . In 1812 he left England with the intention of travelling through Persia to Tartary, but was murdered by bandits in Persia'' (Blackmer).The maps show Darfur and the route of the Sudanese caravan travelling from Egypt to Darfur as well as the tracks (of which one coloured) for slave traders from Darfur to surrounding countries.In very good condition and wholly untrimmed, with owner's stamp on both title-pages. Scarce Dutch translation of an important work containing the earliest information on Darfur.

        Vue du Chateau de Versailles, du côté des Jardins

      Published by chez Basset, Paris 1800 - Hand-coloured engraving heightened with touches of gum arabic. Printed on laid paper. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and minor foxing, two skillfully repaired small tears in the top margin, a couple of mild water stains in the left margin, and a few tiny nicks at the edges of the sheet. A stunning view of the impressive grand facade of the chateau of Versailles as seen from the garden. Originally a modest hunting lodge built by King Louis XIII in 1623, Versailles was transformed into one of the largest and most extravagant palaces in the world during the reign of Louis XIV (1643-1715). The self-proclaimed Sun King remodelled Versailles to demonstrate and symbolize his absolute power as monarch and the glory of France. He enlisted the services of the finest French architects of the era: Jules Hardouin-Mansart (1646-1708), Louis Le Vau (1612-1670), and Charles Le Brun (1619-1690). The extensive project of expansion and renovation began in 1661. The landscape architect André Le Notre (1613-1700) was responsible for redesigning the chateau's luxuriant park, including vast terraces and numerous fountains. In 1682, Versailles became the official royal residence.

The second is the account of Bartholomew Gilbert who was sent by Sir Walter Raleigh to search for the lost colonists of the Roanoke settlement in North Carolina, then known as Virginia, but was killed by Indians. Slightly browned. In very good condition.

With 2 folding maps engraved by D. Veelwaard (ca. 32 x 24 cm and 43 x 40 cm), a woodcut of a pyramid and some tables in text. Modern half vellum.

The rare Dutch translation of an important work, containing the earliest information on Darfur (Sudan). William George Browne (1768-1813), ''inspired by Bruce's travels, went to Egypt in 1792 hoping to explore the oases in the eastern Sahara and to journey to the source of the White Nile. He reached El Fashur in Darfur and was the first Englishman to explore the temple of Jupiter Ammon at the Oasis of Siwa. These deserts were not explored again until 1848 when Bayle St. John travelled through them. Browne was the first European to describe Darfur, which he reached with a Sudanese caravan in 1793. He was imprisoned there by the Sultan of Darfur. In 1796 he reached Egypt again by caravan and eventually returned to England via Syria and Constantinople. From 1800 to 1802 Browne travelled again in Turkey and the Levant. Some information gained at that time was published in Walpole's Memoirs. In 1812 he left England with the intention of travelling through Persia to Tartary, but was murdered by bandits in Persia'' (Blackmer).The maps show Darfur and the route of the Sudanese caravan travelling from Egypt to Darfur as well as the tracks (of which one coloured) for slave traders from Darfur to surrounding countries.In very good condition and wholly untrimmed, with owner's stamp on both title-pages. Scarce Dutch translation of an important work containing the earliest information on Darfur.

        An History of Marine Architecture.

      London: by Bye and Law, for R. Faulder; G. G. and J. Robinson and Co.; A. and J. Black, and H. Parry; [& 26 others in London and 1 in Cambridge],, 1800–02. Including an Enlarged and Progressive View of the Nautical Regulations and Naval History, both Civil and Military, of all Nations, especially of Great Britain; derived chiefly from Original Manuscripts, as well in Private Collections as in the Great Public Repositories: and deduced from the Earliest Period to the Present Time. 3 volumes, quarto (288 × 228 mm). Mid-19th-century half calf, spines gilt tooled on the raised bands and at head and tail, dark brown labels, marbled sides, brown speckled edges, Volume I with additional engraved title page (dated 1801) and incorporating a roundel vignette of Britannia by Shipster after Benjamin West & Dominic Serres, 99 plates (34 aquatints, 65 line engravings, 21 folding). A few scrapes to bindings, a little wear to extremities, front joint of volumes II and III partially split, internally clean and a very good set. First edition of the first serious study of British naval architecture, with "100 handsome plates" (McDonald). "The definitive work of the period on the design and building of ships" (JCB Catalogue). Although McDonald warns that it can be uneven and anecdotal, and ODNB cautions that Charnock followed the opinions of sea officers in over-praising French ships and designs at the expense of their British equivalents, this is certainly the most comprehensive history of marine architecture up to its time. The engraved plates are magnificent and a rich source of information in themselves. Provenance: engraved armorial bookplates (dated 1900) of Sir Richard Harington (1861-1931), 12th baronet (Harington baronetcy of Ridlington, Rutland), JP, High Sheriff of Herefordshire: served in the London Brigade of the Royal Naval Artillery Volunteers (1880-91), commanded Artillery Company of the Calcutta Port Defence Volunteers (1900-09), volunteered for Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve on outbreak of Great War (aged 53), promoted to rank of chief petty officer in Anti-Aircraft Corps, in which capacity he served until 1916; with two letters (both circulars, one dated 2 June 1916 on Chancellor of the Exchequer stationery, concerning American dollar securities; the other dated 2 June 1926 on LMS stationery, concerning the General Strike).

        Historical Account of the Substances which have been used to Describe Events and to Convey Ideas from the Earliest Date to the Invention of Paper. Printed on the First Useful Paper manufactured soley from Straw

      91 pp. Small folio, orig. edition binding of straight-grained blue morocco, spine stamped in blind. [London]: T. Burton, 1800. First edition, and a very fine copy in the original edition binding of blue straight-grained morocco, of this classic work on the search for new materials to manufacture paper. This copy has been signed by Koops at the bottom of the dedication leaf. At the same time as the first papermaking machines, invented in France, were being built in England, Koops was experimenting with the use of straw and wood for papermaking in Bermondsey. He succeeded in the first, large-scale, commercial production of paper made from straw and wood. Koops was given permission by the King to be the only distributor of paper made from alternative paper sources in the hope that he could help solve England's paper crisis; however, the times were not right for this early attempt at recycling and Koops went bankrupt. The book describes ancient equivalents of paper, methods that had been tried over the ages to find paper which would withstand the attack of insects, his data on French exports of paper into England, and comments on Koops' attempts to produce paper from sources other than rags. "Not much is known of Koops, but his work as a experimenter with new papermaking materials at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution is justly famous. He writes of the work of Schäffer, Guettard, de Lisle, Seba, and Senger in the search for new materials, and spends much time discussing the use of conferva for papermaking fibers although emphasizing the availability of straw."-Schlosser, An Exhibition of Books on Papermaking, 21. Fine copy. The two preliminary and two terminal endpapers are also made from wood. Contemporary armorial bookplate of Charles Barclay. ❧ Hunter, The Literature of Papermaking, pp. 47-48.

        Einleitung in die Wissenschaft des Schwedisch-Pommerschen Lehnrechts nebst einem Entwurfe zur vollständigen Darstellung derselben.

      - Berlin und Greifswald, Gottlieb August Lange, 1800. 8:o. VIII,+ 192 s. Liten fläck på s. 125-26. Samtida hfrbd med rikt guldornerad rygg och orange titeletikett, blåa stänksnitt. Ur Joh. Henr. Schröders bibliotek, med hans biblioteksetikett, och ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Setterwall 7560. Emanuel Friedrich Hagemeister (1764-1819) från Greifswald var tysk rättslärd och ingick bland annat i den av Frankrike tillsatta provisoriska regeringen i svenska Pommern och i den kommission som upprättades i Stockholm och Örebro för omgestaltning av den svensk-pommerska lagstiftningen. Den gamla tyska feodalrätten reformerades 1806 och bl.a. avskaffades livegenskapen. Historieprofessorn Johan Henrik Schröders (1791-1857) bibliotek, ?fullt af gamla sällsynta svenska böcker?, såldes på bokauktion i Uppsala efter tryckt förteckning. Enligt Henrik Klemming rådde auktionsdagen sådan snöyra i Uppsala att många, både anbud och spekulanter, inte kunde komma fram till auktionen i tid. Böckerna såldes ofta mycket billigt.

        Das Lob der Freundschaft. Cantate für das Klavier oder Pianoforte.Leipzig, Breitkopf und Härtel, [1799]. Oblong folio (25 x 34 cm). Contemporary marbled wrappers.

      Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung II, 24 (1800), cols. 423-426 (cf. no. 5 (1799) col. 17 for the publishing date); Hirsch IV, 869. First edition of a piano transcription of the last completed composition by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791): the second freemason cantata "Laut verkünde unsre Freude", K. 623. In the introduction the publishers note that until then the cantata had only been available as sheet music and that the text was therefore only useful for freemasons. To make the cantata suitable for domestic use, the masonic text was replaced with a poem by Daniel Jäger (1762-1802), a member of the Leipzig Economic Society and amateur poet. In respect to the original purpose of the cantata, the masonic text was printed below the introduction.With a later owner's inscription on a partly torn piece of paper mounted on the title-page. Binding somewhat loose and the wrapper almost completely torn at the spine and with some damage in the front top corner. Browned at the edges, some larger spots in the final quire; a good copy.

      4, j e ca. 1000 S., HLdr.(Lederimitat) mit Goldprägung., Etwas berieben, sonst tadell. - Das Schweizerisches Idiotikon das grösste Regionalwörterbuch des Deutschen, ist aus einem Idiotikon schweizerdeutscher Wörter längst zu einem umfassenden Wörterbuch des Schweizerdeutschen geworden, ja in gewissem Grad zu einem Reallexikon oder Thesaurus. Es erschliesst sowohl den Wortschatz der zum Teil sehr altertümlichen Dialekte der deutschen Schweiz (inkl. Walsermundarten Oberitaliens) als auch die schriftliche Überlieferung dieses Gebiets seit dem 12. Jahrhundert, besonders gründlich die des 15. und 16. Jahrhundert dabei sind namentlich Landwirtschaft, Jagd, Fischerei und Gewerbe, Sachkultur und Volksleben, Recht und Dichtung berücksichtigt, auch Volkslieder, Kinderreime, Bauernregeln usw., sodann die Sondersprachen der Schüler, Studenten, Soldaten und Fahrenden.Die einzelnen Wörter sind zufolge der lautlichen Vielfalt gemäss dem Schmellerschen System in erster Linie nach der Herkunft angeordnet und semantisch aufeinander bezogen dadurch werden nicht nur die Bedeutungsentwicklung jedes Wortes, sondern auch dessen Stellenwert und Leistung innerhalb der Wortsippe sichtbar. Vielfache Verweisungen auf Synonyme und begriffsnahe Wörter erschliessen Wortfelder der Gegenwart oder früherer Zeit. Wo möglich (durchwegs für die Sprache vor 1800) sind die Wörter im Satzzusammenhang geboten daher ist auch Phraseologie und Idiomatik berücksichtigt. Den Appellativen sind in reichem Masse entsprechende lebende und urkundliche Namen (Personen- und Lokalnamen) angeschlossen.Da der Grundstock des Mundartmaterials in der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts dank der Mitarbeit von gegen 400 Korrespondenten zusammengekommen ist, kann das Werk sonst kaum beschriebene und heute weitgehend verschwundene Bereiche der sprachlichen, geistigen und materiellen Kultur dieser Zeit besonders gut dokumentieren. Es ist Arbeitsinstrument für verschiedenste Wissensgebiete wie Sprach-, Geschichts- und Rechtswissenschaft, Volks- und Namenkunde. Geographisch umfasst das Bearbeitungsgebiet die deutsche Schweiz einschliesslich der Walserorte in Norditalien. Das Gesamtwerk ( Bd. 16 erscheint 2010, Bd. 17 erst 2020) wird 17 Bände umfassen. Auf den Abschluss hin sind Arbeiten an einem alphabetischen und einem grammatischen Gesamtregister in Gang.Versandkostenfrei für Europa. (Beiliegend: Quellen- u.

        Gli Imperi Antichi parte orientale & occidentale

      Roma 1800 - EDIZIONE ORIGINALE, COLORITURA COEVA - Due belle e decorative carte geografiche che mostrano l'estensione dell'antico Impero Turco, diviso nella sua regione orientale e occidentale. Tratta dal "Nuovo Atlante Geografico Universale delineato sulle ultime osservazioni", edito a Roma dal 1792 fino al 1801, opera che la Calcografia Camerale commissionò al Cassini al fine di sostituire l’ormai obsoleto "Mercurio Geografico". Giovanni Maria Cassini, Chierico Regolare Somasco fu geografo e cartografo, ma anche intagliatore di architetture e prospettive - uno dei migliori discepoli di Giovanni Battista Piranesi - Cassini fu uno degli ultimi sferografi italiani del Settecento ed i suoi globi ebbero una notevole diffusione, come pure questo "Nuovo Atlante Geografico". Incisione in rame, coloritura coeva dei contorni, leggere bruniture, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. L'Atlante del Cassini fu ristampato dalla Calcografia Camerale nel primo quarto del XIX secolo, prima del 1839. Solo gli esemplari di prima edizione come questo sono stampati su carta vergata coeva e sono colorati a mano in epoca. Le tirature del XIX secolo sono già su carta meccanica, priva di vergelle, e generalmente in bianco e nero. FIRST EDITION, CONTEMPORARY OUTLINE COLOUR - The Italian painter and engraver, Giovanni Maria Cassini, produced these two map od the urkish Empire decorative divided into eastern and western parts Published in: Nuovo atlante geografico universale delineato sulle ultime osservazioni. Roma, Calcografia camerale, 1792-1801. Cassini was geographer and cartographer but he was also good at engraving architectural items and perspectives – he was one of the best disciples Giovanni Battista Piranesi had. Moreover, Cassini was one of the last artists to engrave spheres in the XVIII century and his globes were quite famous and widespread, and realized the most important Italian Atlas of the XVIII century; his maps always bear a cartouche, extremely rich in colours and details. Copperplate with fine original hand colour, some foxing, otherwise in very good condition. Dimensioni

        The Works of Robert Burns.

M'Creery 1800 - First edition, 4 volumes, 8vo., [4], [i-iii], iv-xxvi, 377pp.; [i-v], vi-xxvi, [xxvii -xxviii], 476pp.; [4], i-xv, 384, Appendix & Glossary 55pp.; [6], i-xxiv, 417pp., engraved portrait frontispiece, postscript leaf at end of volume one, advertisement leaf at end of volume 4, some light foxing, mostly marginal, occasional finger-mark, minor worming to affecting lower outside corner of volume 3, contemporary marbled calf, black and red lettering pieces to spines, a little rubbed at extremities, a few bumped corners, otherwise a very good and noble set. If ever a poet understood the character of his nation, he was Robert Burns. The language he was most fluent in wasn't so much Scots or English – it was the language of the heart. All too human in his personal life, he carried that humanity over onto the page. Nothing was too small or too large to escape his notice, from a mouse in the mud to God in his heavens. A poet for all seasons, Burns speaks to all. [Attributes: First Edition]
