        Plan of the West India Wet Docks Dedicated by Permission ro Geo. Hibbert Esqr. Chairman Robt. Milligan Esqr. Deputy Chairman & the Directors of the West India Dock Company by their much obliged and very humble Servant Ralph Walker. Resident Engineer.

      Published as the Act directs, by R. Walker, Blackwall, Jany. 1, 1801., [London], - Separately issued plan of the proposed West India Docks 570 by 840mm (22.5 by 33 inches). Hand-coloured engraved plan, key and title below plan, engraved view of the north side of the docks above plan. BLMC Maps 3500.(9.). The plan shows the intended docks together with the rope grounds, paths, streams, and fields that would be obliterated by the new works.The plan is dedicated to George Hibbert and Robert Milligan, two powerful West Indies merchants who lobbied Parliament in order to construct a secure dock to load and off load their cargoes. The construction of the docks was authorised by the West India Docks Act of 1799. They would be completed by 1802, with the canal to the south being finished in 1805.Ralph Walker (1749-1824) was appointed Resident Engineer to the West India Dock Company in August 1799 on a salary of £600 p.a. Together with William Jessop, the chief engineer, he was responsible for the construction of the docks. However, he would resign from his post in October of 1802, following a professional disagreement with Jessop over a structural failure at the docks.Rare. OCLC records only a single example: that of the British Library.Scale: approx 32 inches to 1 statute mile.

        Odes pindaricas posthumas de Elpino Nonacriense.

      Coimbra, Na Imprensa da Universidade, 1801. - 258 pp., (1 l.). Page 6 incorrectly numbered "9". 16°, contemporary crimson morocco (very small hole to upper joint near head of spine), flat spine gilt, black morocco lettering piece, gilt letter, covers with gilt borders and elaborate gilt design on edges, inner dentelles gilt, paste-decorated endleaves, red silk ribbon place marker, all text-block edges gilt. In very fine condition. Bookplate of Joaquim Pessoa. ---- FIRST EDITION, with page 6 in its original state. Among the subjects of the odes are Vasco da Gama, André Furtado de Mendonça, João Fernandes Vieira, Dom João de Castro, Antonio Moniz Barreto, Duarte Pacheco Pereira, the Count Schaumbourg Lippe, and the Marquês de Pombal (to whom there are no less than four poems, including one on the reforms to Coimbra University). A second edition was published in London, 1820. The @Odes also were published as volumes V and VI of the author's @Poesias (Lisbon, 1807-17). Cruz e Silva developed a formidable reputation as a lyric poet and satirist. His @O Hyssope was a source of inspiration for Francisco de Mello Franco's famous burlesque poem @Reino da estupidez. Cruz e Silva based his poem on the quarrel between the bishop of Elvas, D. Lourenço de Lancastre, and the dean, D. José Carlos de Lara, which he witnessed first-hand while resident in Elvas from 1764 to 1774. As Bell recounts the tale, Cruz e Silva "was summoned to read his satire to the all-powerful [Marques de] Pombal in the presence of the infuriated bishop . the poem proved too much for the gravity of the minister, who appointed him a judge in Rio de Janeiro (1776)" (@Portuguese Literature pp. 273-4). Martins de Carvalho notes (p. 7) that many contemporaries considered @O Hyssope "muito superior" to Pope's @Rape of the Lock.Of humble origins (his father was a carpenter who abandoned the family to emigrate to Brazil, while his mother supported them working as a seamstress), Cruz e Silva (Lisbon 1731-Rio de Janeiro 1799) studied law at Coimbra. He co-founded the Arcadia Ulyssiponense in 1756 and, while serving as a military judge, developed a formidable reputation as a lyric poet and satirist. Most of Cruz e Silva's poems remained unpublished until after his death. In July 1790 Cruz e Silva was sent again to Brazil to assist in trying the leaders of the Republican conspiracy in Minas, in which Tomás António Gonzaga, Claudio Manuel da Costa, Manuel Inácio da Silva Alvarenga and other men of letters were involved, and in December 1792 he became chancellor of the Relação in Rio. Six years later he was named councillor of the Conselho Ultramarino, but did not live to return home.---- Innocêncio I, 124 (without mention of the final leaf). Pinto de Matos (1970) p. 235.

In three seasons work Vancouver surveyed the coast of California, visited San Francisco and San Diego, settled formalities with the Spanish at Nootka, investigated the Strait of Juan de Fuca, discovered the Strait of Georgia, circumnavigated Vancouver Island, and disproved the existence of any passage between the Pacific and Hudson Bay.

        The Life and Exploits of the Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote de la Mancha (in four volumes)

      London; William Miller, 1801 - Hardcover, plain turquoise paper covered publisher's boards, 8vo, untrimmed pages, 19 engraved plates throughout and an engraved portait frontis (Thomas Stothard (7), Jones (1), Banks (1), John Thurston (1), Samuel Shelley (1) and nine unsigned/unattributed) and a foldout map. A revised and corrected edition of the original Jarvis translation, this four volume set includes a life of Cervantes and a chronological plan of Don Quixote at the start of volume one. Pagination is: Vol 1 - cxlv, 371pp; Vol II - ix, 412pp; Vol III - xvi, 391pp; Vol IV - xii, 440pp, plus 7pp publisher's catalogue. The four volumes are complete, with all the plates and the map present. The pages surfaces are clean and unfoxed, the untrimmed edges have accumulated a certain amount of dirt over time. The rough weave endpapers have two sets of previous owners' names - an earlier copperplate pen name and a more recent copperplate stamp. The first volume is inscribed "From the Editor With his best Regards", but although there is a preface from the editor there is no attribution and we have been unable to discover who this was. The set is bound in plain publisher's boards which we believe would probably have been replaced with a binding of the original buyer's choice. The binding is solid in all volumes but the boards and spines are in varying degrees of health. Volume I - both boards are worn to all outer edges and the corners frayed, the rear board is loosening and the spine is missing. Volume II - all edges worn, corners frayed, bottom third of the spine is missing and the remainder is connected at the rear hinge only. Volume III - all edges worn, corners frayed, bottom 2 inches of spine missing but remainder attached both sides. Volume IV - has been rebacked and repaired, the board edges resealed and the corners rebuilt, with the remains of the original spine paper pasted down to the matched rebacking. Quite nicely done. The first three volumes could be repaired to match the fourth, or all could be leather bound to make a very handsome and worthwhile set. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        AN INQUIRY INTO THE STRUCTURE & ANIMAL OECONOMY OF THE HORSE. Comprehending the diseases to which his limbs and feet are subject, with proper directions for shoeing, and pointing out a method for ascertaining his age until his twelfth year. To which is added, an attempt to explain the laws of his progressive motion, on mechanical and anatomical principles

      Printed for the Author. Birmingham. 1801. FIRST EDITION. 4to. (10.5 x 8.6 inches). Illustrated with 18 fine copper engravings by the author, including five fold out. Fifteen of the plates have a page of descriptive text opposite. A crisp, wide-margined copy bound in recent full brown morocco binding. Spine with raised bands, gilt. Double ruled gilt border on boards. Marbled endpapers. Some offsetting from the plates, reproducing a mirror image on the opposite page, otherwise a lovely bright and clean copy of this uncommon work. Lawrence, a Veterinary Surgeon based in Birmingham, disagreed with the conventional theory of the time and accurately describes the way Horses gallop. He was proved right when the advent of stop frame photography allowed the motion to be recorded for the first time. -- Loosely inserted, but unconnected with the book, is a folding copper engraved page from Hall's encyclopaedia, undated but circa 1790's, showing three images of the anatomy of the Horse.

Volume one contains 32 poems by Matthew Lewis, Walter Scott, John Leyden, and others. Volume two contains 28 standard poems by Ben Johnson, Dryden, Burns, Glover, Mallet, Ransay, Dr. Harrington, and Gray. Tales of Wonder was a decisive, if not always admitted, influence on the Romantics and is the seminal horror poetry volume in English. In its day the lavish, high-priced set was jeered at as &#39;Tales of Plunder&#39; -- alluding also to the sometimes careless &#39;translations&#39; in volume one and the padding with commonplace ballads in volume two. Yet the very venom of the attacks -- and of the scathing parodies -- plus the many reprints and new editions, suggest that TALES OF WONDER was a vital, popular collection." - Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 6- 32. "Although poetry may be the genre for which Lewis is now least remembered, he was a poet of some prominence in his day, eminent in the cult of the ballad and said to have influenced Scott, James Hogg, and others." - Bleiler (ed), Supernatural Fiction Writers: Fantasy and Horror, p. 158. "Lewis&#39;s ballads are all imbued with a queer mixture of German and Scottish diablerie. They combine wild imagery with real pathos, linking the absurd with the wonderful, the horrific with the sublime ... His poems are now almost forgotten, but prominent Romantics fell under his spell." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, pp. 264-6.

Part III concludes with An Heroical Epistle of Hudibras to His Lady, and The Lady's Answer to the Knight. This is followed by the unpaginated Index to the Second Volume, and 3 pages of book adverts. Hudibras is an epic satirical and historical poem, based upon real people of the time. It is believed that the Knight Hudibras portrays Sir. Samuel Luke, Presbyterian Committee-man and Justice of the Peace. This epic poem in three parts tells the story of the Knight, his unrequited love for a Lady, and his disagreements with his Squire. Hudibras is an undisputable original of sublime wit and pungent satire on the hypocracy, wickedness, and corruption within both the state and the church. The poet Samuel Butler displays the noblest of thought in a way which is both humorous and comical. When it was first published it soon became the chief entertainment of King Charles II and his Court, and was highly esteemed by the Earl of Rochester, one of the greatest wits in that reign. It continues to be an entertainment to all who have a taste for the most refined ridicule and satire. Tight copy, in remarkably good condition for a set that is over 200 years old.

        Painting of a Spaniel

      1801 - Henry Bernard Chalon (1771-1849) 1801 Oil on canvas Signed and dated "H.B. Chalon 1801" lower right 19" x 23 ½"; 24" x 27 ½" framed Henry Bernard Chalon, the son of a Dutch etcher and musician, was born in London in 1771. He studied painting at the Royal Academy, and by the age of 22 was a regular exhibitor at the Academy. A prolific painter at a young age, Chalon was made Animal Painter to the Duchess of York in 1795. Later Chalon was named as the official Animal Painter to the Prince Regent and William IV. In 1827 he collaborated with his brother-in-law, William Ward, on a series of horse racing illustrations for Sporting Magazine. Chalon is best known for his portraits of horses, dogs and cattle and was well patronized throughout his career. Many of Chalon's paintings are of animals that belonged to various members of the royal family. This portrait of a spaniel was likely painted for the Duchess of York, Princess Frederica Charlotte Ulrica (1764-1820), a dedicated dog lover, while Chalon was under her patronage. Chalon was known for his attention to detail and the anatomical correctness of his animals, which can clearly be seen in this charming work.

The fifth edition

      Printed and Published by Robert Laurie and James Whittle, London 1801 - Contemporary tree calf, covers with roll-tool border in gilt, the flat spine divided into seven compartments by gilt fillets and roll-tools, blue morocco lettering-piece in the second, the other compartments with repeat neo-classical decoration of a single centrally-placed tool, marbled endpapers A very fine copy of the fifth edition of this important atlas of the world, including a newly revised chart of world and nine other maps that were not available in the early editions of this spectacular work Eight editions of this work were issued on an almost annual basis from 1796 until 1807. The publishers constantly changed and improved the atlas in an effort to outdo not only their competitors, but also to improve on the previous edition. Maps were added (the first edition included only 66 map sheets), maps were replaced (the present work includes two maps dated 1800, including 'A New Chart of the World' dated 25 November 1800), and maps were updated (eight maps are dated 1799). The scale of some of the maps is truly spectacular: this atlas contains 15 maps that if joined would form large scale wall maps: 'Asia and its Islands' (on three folding sheets, ranging from the Arctic regions in the north, down through Russia, Indonesia and Australia) would measure approximately 56 x 46 inches if assembled. The remaining maps on two folding sheets would all be approximately 40 x 46 inches if joined: these include three maps of American interest: 'A new map of the whole continent of America'; 'A new map of North America, with the West India Islands'; and 'A map of South America'. The remaining areas that are covered by large scale maps are 'A general map of the World'; England & Wales; Scotland; Ireland; the Netherlands; Germany; Hindoostan; Bengal, Bahar, etc; Delhi, Agrah, Oude and Allahabad. This atlas was originally created by Thomas Kitchin. Sayer and Bennett had published the work in 1773, and Laurie and Whittle took over the Sayer business in 1794. They subsequently enlarged the work, adding maps and changing the name from the General Atlas to A New Universal Atlas .

His investigations, although pursued at so early a period of Arctic exploration, were remarkable for their accuracy; Sir John Franklin more than once expressed his surprise at being able to corroborate their correctness in his own explorations. Some Indian vocabularies are included.". (Sabin) Mackenzie&#39;s journals recount his two expeditions undertaken on behalf of the North West Company in its attempt to break the Hudson&#39;s Bay Company monopoly of the fur trade. The first expedition, in 1789, from Fort Chipewyan on Lake Athabaska down what is now known as the Mackenzie River to the Arctic constitutes the first trip to the Arctic from the Canadian prairies; the second, in 1792-93, from Fort Chipewyan over the Rocky Mountains by the Peace and Fraser Rivers to the Pacific, is distinguished as the first overland expedition to reach the Pacific, north of Mexico. The maps are the earliest done of certain parts of Canada. Also included is a lengthy account of the development of the fur trade in the North West, generally attributed to the author&#39;s cousin, Roderick Mackenzie. Bell M20. Hill pp. 187-88. Howes M-133.

        VOYAGE A LA CÔTE OCCIDENTALE D'AFRIQUE, fait dans les années 1786 et 1787 ; contenant la description des moeurs, usages, lois, gouvernement et commerce des Etats du Congo, fréquentés par les Européens, et un précis de la traite des Noirs, ainsi qu'elle avait lieu avant la Révolution française ; suivi d'un Voyage fait au cap de Bonne-Espérance, contenant la description militaire de cette colonie. [2 volumes].

      1801 - Paris, Dentu, An IX - 1801. Deux volumes in-8 (130 X 197) demi-veau fauve à petits coins, dos lisse orné de filets gras et perlés, larges fleurons dorés, pièces de titre et de tomaison veau vert lierre, la tomaison est frappée au centre d'un blason doré et orné (reliure de l'époque). Tome I : faux-titre, titre, 32 pages, XXVIII pages, 226 pages, 1 carte et 7 planches dépliantes ; Tome II : faux-titre, titre, 320 pages, 1 plan, 1 carte et 1 planche dépliante. Tache brune en marge de quelques feuillets du premier tome et en marge de deux gravures, sans gravité. ÉDITION ORIGINALE de ce témoignage de la traite des noirs par un négrier ?repenti? Cette relation renferme des détails intéressants sur les m?urs, le commerce et la navigation des indigènes. Elle est publiée en 1801, à l?époque où la traite des noirs redémarre en France. On trouve pages 156 à 162 du tome I un vocabulaire Congo. HUIT BELLES PLANCHES dépliantes dessinées par l?auteur d?après nature et gravées en taille-douce par Nicolas Courbe sur vergé fort, représentant des indigènes et des scènes de m?urs, DEUX CARTES décrivant la côte d?Angola et le Cap de Bonne Espérance et un PLAN de la citadelle du Cap de Bonne espérance. LA TRAITE DES NOIRS EN ANGOLA : à la fin du XVIIIe siècle, de nombreux négriers européens vont pratiquer la traite de Noirs sur la «côte d?Angole» qui désigne alors non seulement l?actuelle Angola, au Sud du fleuve Zaïre, mais surtout au Nord, les royaumes du Congo: le Loango, le Kacongo et le Ngoyo ou Gabinde, particulièrement productifs. Les captifs, que les Européens appellent «Congos», viennent de la périphérie de ces royaumes, sur une aire d?environ 300 km et arrivent aussi, par le fleuve, de régions plus lointaines du centre et du sud de l?Afrique. Les archives de ce trafic se recoupent avec des récits de voyages, parfois illustrés. Louis Ohier, comte de GRANDPRÉ (1761-1846), marin et voyageur français, fut tour à tour armateur et marchand, agent secret, officier, ingénieur et écrivain féru de botanique. Après avoir mené une vie aventureuse sous la Révolution, il fait le récit de son expérience de négrier dans un manuel de traite spécifique pour cette partie de la côte occidentale d?Afrique. Il dénonce dans cet ouvrage les abus de la traite des Noirs à laquelle il participa lors de son voyage, et propose de la supprimer et de la remplacer par des établissements où l'on pourrait importer et cultiver toutes les productions coloniales. Il tente ensuite de disculper les indigènes de l'accusation d'anthropophagie, laquelle, selon lui, n'est exercée que très rarement et seulement à titre de vengeance. BEL EXEMPLAIRE de cet ouvrage peu commun, finement relié à l'époque. (Luce-Marie Albigès, "La Traite à la «côte d'Angole», L?Histoire par l?image (1643-1945)" ? Gay, 3075 ?

Original blue paper wrappers (lightly worn, but still vivid and attractive, with some skilful repairs to the spine); preserved in a modern blue cloth, gilt slipcase and chemises. "HIS VERACITY MAY BE RELIED ON. AND YOU WILL BE EASILY ABLE TO SEPARATE FROM THEM HIS REFLECTIONS" (Jefferson) First edition. "No other writer has so well described the Indian great councils, or assemblies, where they deliberate on their public interests" (Sabin). A classic American narrative. After installing himself on a farm in Orange County, New York following the French and Indian War, the French-born Crevecoeur began writing about America. His "Letters of An American Farmer" became the first "best-seller" in Europe by an American, and forged an American identity in the minds of Europeans, and in a large part helped to begin the mythology of the American Dream. However, by the time he wrote the present title, dedicated to George Washington, he had been largely forgotten about, and the book was generally ignored. "This work is distinguished by its valuable details on the aboriginal tribes, and their gradual disappearance. No other writer has so well described the Indian great councils, or assemblies, where they deliberate on their public interests" (Sabin 17502).

Pennypacker [1843 - 1916 / Governor of Pennsylvania from 1903 to 1907, Americanist, President of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania] on the front pastedown of each volume. These volumes are finely printed and illustrated. Of special note are: the portrait of Washington engraved from a cameo executed by Madame Brehan in NY (1789); the powerful pictures of an Onondaga sachem and Koohassen ,an Oneida warrior; and the fine maps & plans, including a large folding map of the Southern United States, engraved by Tardieu. "Original work of this author, presented under the guise of a translation." - Howes Only his initials appear at the end of the dedication to George Washington. "This work is distinguished by its valuable details on the aboriginal tribes, and their gradual disappearance. No other writer has so well described the Indian great councils, or assemblies, where they deliberate on their public interests.". Howes C884; Sabin 17501; Brunet II, 424 Crevecoeur [1731-1813] traveled widely in America after the French & Indian War, and became a naturalized citizen in 1765. In the Revolution he chose the Loyalist side, and during the War he resided in France. During this separation from his adopted home he wrote: LETTERS FROM AN AMERICAN FARMER. "This volume was more widely read in England & Europe and had a greater influence in attracting its readers toAmerica than any other book of the period" - Vail 674. When he returned toAmerica in 1783 he found that his home had been burnt by Indians, and that his wife and children were gone. This present work was written during the difficult years of the French Revolution. It was intended to be merely a fourth volume of the "Letters From an American Farmer", but Crevecoeur eventually created an entirely new work. In its pages one discovers the final evolution of his ideas, intimate observations, and dreams aboutAmerica. It is filled with details on the gradual disappearance of the aboriginal tribes and the great Indian Councils. He also had intimate knowledge of the characters of the founding fathers. Crevecoeur was, for many years, the French Consul inNew York and enjoyed the friendship of Washington,Franklin, and other leaders. The author spent nearly 25 years inAmerica, saw Washington, in 1774, come to the first Congress fresh from his farm, witnessed his extraordinary career, and in 1797, saw him return to private life as an agriculturalist.

Sabin: "L&#146;auteur passa presqu&#146;un quart de siècle en Amérique, vit Washington, en 1774, arriver au premier Congrès frais de sa ferme, fut témoin de sa carrière extraordinaire, et, en 1797, le vit prendre sa retraite à la vie privée d&#146;un agriculteur. Son expérience, alors, lui permet de donner beaucoup d&#146;informations et des cancans personnels qui ne se trouvent pas facilement ailleurs. Il y a aussi un beau portrait de Kesketomah, un sachem des Onondagas, et de Koohassen, un guerrier Oneida. Cet ouvrage est distingué par ses détails valables sur les tribus aborigènes, et leur disparition graduelle. Aucun autre auteur a aussi bien décrit les grands conseils ou assemblées des Indiens, où ils délibèrent sur leurs intérêts publics.". Howes (Hartley) C888 ("dd") note: "Ouvrage original de cet auteur, présentée sous le déguisement d&#146;une traduction." Crèvecoeur était un noble Français qui vint en Amérique en 1754 et servit sous Montcalm pendant la Guerre de Sept Ans. Il voyagea beaucoup dans les régions des Grands Lacs et de l'Ohio ainsi que dans les colonies Américaines, et s&#146;établit finalement sur une ferme près de la frontière en Orange County, New York. De 1783 jusqu&#146;en 1790 il était le consul français à New York. Sabin, 17501; Field, 388; T.P.L. 6801. Monaghan 503.

Originally published in 1793, the first two volumes were History, Civil and Commercial, of the British Colonies in the West Indies. In 1797, a companion volume, Historical Survey of the French Colony in the Island of St. Domingo was released. In the 1794 edition, both titles were consolidated into a three volume collection. They provide a comprehensive account of the colonial histories of several islands, including source documents, detailed maps, letters and ledgers. This has been translated into German and, in part, into French and Spanish. A fifth edition was issued in 1819. This rare 3 volume collection is complete, in tact, and well-preserved.

        De l'éducation d'un homme sauvage, ou des premiers développemens physiques et moraux du jeune sauvage de l'Aveyron.

      Paris: chez Goujon fils, 1801 - Octavo (197 × 126 cm). Later blue paper wrappers, edges trimmed. Very faint foxing to some leaves, a very good copy. Etched portrait frontispiece depicting the Wild Boy; signed as usual by the author and the publisher on the title verso. First edition of Itard's first account of his attempted education of Victor, the Wild Boy of Aveyron. Itard was a French physician noted for his work with deaf-mutes, but his attempts to educate Victor were a failure. Some have considered this to be the first documented case of autism. Though that diagnosis is controversial, Victor of Aveyron is probably the best-known feral child of the Enlightenment era, made famous more recently through François Truffaut's film L'Enfant Sauvage.

        De l'education d'un homme sauvage, ou des premiers developpemens physiques et moraux du jeune sauvage de l'Aveyron [The Wild Boy of Aveyron]

      Goujon fils, An X. [1801], Paris - Hardcover. First Edition of this famous work. Jean Itard (1774-1838) was a French doctor who was known as an educator of deaf-mutes. He tried to test his educational theories in the celebrated case of Victor - The Wild Boy - of Aveyron. The boy was found in the woods in a feral state and was believed to have lived there for years. Itard worked to make the boy "normal," but failed. In this first report Itard was optimistic about the feral child's prospects for language acquisition and socialization. In his 1807 second report his conclusions were much more pessimistic, as even after a number of years of intensive education the boy had been unable to learn to speak. Itard's methods, described in his two reports, were based upon the philosopher Condillac's analytical approach to the acquisition of knowledge, which had been used with success in the teaching of deaf-mutes. However, Itard created a new system of pedagogy in adapting this approach to the needs of this extraordinary boy. [Haskell Norman Catalog 1144]. A small octavo bound in modern marbled brown paper covered boards with gilt-stamped spine. Lacking the frontispiece portrait of the "Wild Boy" and trimmed a bit closely at the top margin, otherwise very good with minor foxing. With two minor early corrections to pages 45-46 and an early marginal ink comment to page 7. Signed as usual by Itard and Goujon on the verso of the title page to prevent piracy. 100 pages.
