In fine : Ouvrage de Madame de Genlis qui se vendent chez le même libraire. Le chef-d'oeuvre oublié de la Comtesse de Genlis, nouvelle à l'écriture classique qui répond si bien au précepte d'écriture qu'elle a fixé : « clarté, naturel, pureté, élégance sont les marques indispensables d'un bon style », et à sa conception de la nouvelle : « dans ce dernier ouvrage tout doit marcher au but avec rapidité, ou tout doit s'y rapporter. ». Mademoiselle de Clermont raconte l'authentique passion de la jeune Marie-Anne de Bourbon-Condé, princesse de sang, pour un duc que son rang social lui interdit d'épouser.

WORDSWORTH, William (& COLERIDGE, Samuel Taylor).
T.N. Longman & O. Rees. 1802. Expertly rebound in appropriate half calf, marbled boards with vellum-tipped corners, red leather labels. With a slip in vol. II from Wigan Public Libraries. v.g. Wise (6). The first edition of 1798 comprised one volume only. For the second edition, a second volume of poems was added, with vol. I only designated 'second edition'. For the next edition, 1802, the one here presented, vol. I was thus the 'third edition', while vol. II was the 'second edition'. In this edition Wordsworth further expanded the celebrated preface, as well as editing the poems in several places. One of Wordsworth's poems was excised completely, as well as Coleridge's 'The Dungeon', reducing his contribution to just four pieces. The Argument to Ancient Mariner was also omitted. Written into the prelims of vol. I, a sonnet in contemp. ms., commending the work to Fanny: "These Ballads Lyrical my love, May pleasure give, and time improve." A slip from Wigan public library, and an earlier bookseller's description, attributes the inscription to the occasional poet and authoress Anne Cox, 1766-1830. From 1803 she was Mrs Nathaniel George Woodroffe, her most notable publication being Michael, the Married Man, 1827. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Dante Alighieri, Rev. Henry Boyd
The Strand, London: Strahan for Cadell and Davies, 1802. See pictures. Recent clean bindings, still somewhat tight. A few errant (ring?) rubs in the leather, but mostly issue free. Volume 3 board has the slightest bow due to tight leather on front board. Original endbands and endpapers, text block not trimmed (page edges still retain their matching patina; always a matching set). Some rust spots and foxing, more towards ends; text blocks have some, but it's light. Toning to paper throughout. V1 Title page has small candle ember spot, no text affected. Occasional candle ember spot (small, less than 1 cm.), most in bottom margin. Page 323-326 uncut at top edge (on that note, margins are wide!). Thumb mark on 339. Occasional dog-ear crease. Square ghost of insert at end of v1 and 2 between last text page and endpaper. V2, smudge on blank 216. A few stray ink marks along the bottom edge of the text blocks. Although the works have some foxing, as is common to paper of this period, it's predominately clean with wide margins. No annotations. The first English translation of the entire Divine Comedy, as prepared by the Rev. Henry Boyd. Remarkably, perhaps due to anti-Catholic sentiment, the English speaking world largely ignored The Divine Comedy until the 18th century, when William Blake translated portions of it and is accredited with reigniting interest. The Rev. Henry Boyd was the first to complete translation of the entire work, published in 1802. This example of the 1802 first English edition has fresh bindings, sympathetic to the historic nature of the work, retaining th … [Click Below for Full Description]

WEST, Jane]
A.Strahan, 1802. First edition. Three volumes, bound in contemporary half calf with marbled boards. Bound without half-titles. A good copy, wanting spine labels with spine ends worn and some cracking to the calf on the spine. Internally fresh. Jane West is now better known for her source material used in other books, than as a novelist in her own right. A Gossip's Story (1796) written under the name of Prudentia Homespun served as the inspiration for Austen's Sense and Sensibility. The Infidel Father, a convoluted Gothic novel, describes the ambitious and caddish Lord Glanville and involves seductions, illegal marriages, duplicity, suicide and the ultimate unmasking of the callous Earl, before he drowns his broken conscience in laudanum. It is thought that the hallucinatory scenes are likely to be a literary inspiration for De Quincey's Opium Eater. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The top half of the spine on Vol. I has started to detach, but is still connected along one edge. Vol. II is showing some splitting along the top few inches of the front joint, with the top inch or so of the spine starting to peel away. There's only a tiny bit of splitting on the front joint of Vol. III (none of the boards feel in danger of detaching on any of the books). Foxing, soiling, and waviness--sometimes heavy-- to the pages. Some pages have creases, mostly corner creases, and the last endpaper of Vol II has a long, fold-over crease. One page set in Vol. II extends a little beyond the text block, with creases along the fore-edge. Vol. I has some pencil notations on the front and rear pastedowns. The Vol. I binding is cracking between the first full page of text and the page opposite. But nothing has detached and the overall binding is still holding firm.

DENNIE, Joseph, as Oliver Oldschool, Esq
Printed for The Editor & Elizabeth Dickens, Philadelphia. Periodicals. Folios. A set of four weekly issues from June, 1802. (Volume 2, Nos. 22-25). Each weekly issue consists of eight pages, disbound but untrimmed as originally published, and professionally sewn into one set of four consecutive issues. Browning and scattered foxing, with two columns (measuring 3" x 7" and 3" x 2.5") clipped from the last leaf of the first issue (pp. 175-176), else good. Contains the first American appearance of a sensational burlesque version of "Little Red Riding Hood" (pages 173-174). First published anonymously in *Tales of Terror* (London, 1801), a collection of ballads satirizing the gothic writings of Matthew Gregory "Monk" Lewis, this account of the nursery tale is notably grimmer than the 1812 Brothers Grimm version. *The Port Folio* was an important Federalist literary magazine founded in Philadelphia in 1801 and edited by Joseph Dennie under the pen name "Oliver Oldschool, Esq." Also included in the June 5th issue are obituary notices for Martha Washington, "widow of the late illustrious general," and Sara Jay, "the amiable and much respected wife of his excellency John Jay."

Payson, Seth
Printed by Samuel Etheridge for the Author, 1802. Reddish leather bound, gold decor on spine, label says 'Modern Antichrist'. A brilliant binding, hinges Very Good. 'Gold' foxing on preliminary and ending text pages, some throughout. Moderate general wear. All pages intact. 290 pages. Containing an abstract of the most interesting parts of what Dr. Robison and the Abbe Barruel have published on this subject; with collateral proofs and general observations. Illuminism is identified with a group of Bavarian enthusiasts, known as the Illuminati (Perfectibilists or Perfektibilisten ). Their main objective was to establish and propagate a new religion, and politically to establish a universal democratic republic that would follow the overthrow of existing government. The foundation of both was enlightened reason, i.e., reason liberated from the dominating authority of Church and State. The group was founded by Adam Weishaupt on May 1, 1776. Weishaupt had been educated by the Jesuits, and became the first lay professor of Canon Law at the University of Ingolstadt. [Attributes: First Edition]

Edward Jenner
1802. Edward Jenner who created the first vaccine, that eventually beats a pandemic, Here He Sends Vaccine Material to the Man who First Coined the Term "Vaccination"Virologist and Inventor of the smallpox vaccine. Jenner discovery allowed manking its first win against a woldwide pandemic. Autograph letter signed. 3 pages. London, February 14, 1802. Jenner writes to his friend and vaccine supporter, the surgeon Richard Dunning, who first coined the term "vaccination." Written just a few years after Jenner first published his findings on vaccination in "An Inquiry...," this letter illustrates the dramatic transformation Jenner underwent from country doctor to scientist of international renown. As the news of his discovery spread, Jenner received letters from numerous physicians and philanthropists. He writes in this letter, "In point of politeness, I ought to address a letter to all those Gentl[emen] who so kindly address'd letters to me; but you can hardly guess at the constant succession of (I hardly know how to give these scenes a name) vaccine affairs, that incessantly come before me at this peculiar juncture." The recipient of this letter, Dunning, was the first to coin the term "vaccination," which Jenner had previously referred to as "vaccinism." Dunning's esteem for Jenner was so great that Baron reports he obtained Jenner's so that it could hang in the Medical Society of Plymouth. Jenner was extremely active in facilitating access to his vaccine. He ended nearly in ruin because of his consistent choice to provide the vaccine for free, rather than let an … [Click Below for Full Description]

Printed, at the Oriental Press, . for J. Johnson .; J. White .; & T. Payne . 1802. FIRST EDITION. Half title, engr. front. & one plate by J. Gandy after J. Landseer; plate torn in upper corner with sl. loss, but not affecting image. Contemp. half red sheep, spine lettered & with devices in gilt, marbled boards; spine & corners a little rubbed & worn. Naval bookplate of Hubert S. Smith. A nice copy. With a presentation inscription on half title, 'to the Hon.ble Charles James Fox by the Author'. Fox was the noted Whig parliamentarian, famous for his unswerving radicalism, and as a staunch opponent of George III (whom he dubbed 'the tyrant') and Pitt the Younger. He was a controversial politician throughout his career, causing anger among rivals and allies alike for his almost pathological opposition to the ruling elite. He declared himself in favour of the French Revolution, and unusually, was an avowed supporter of George Washington in the American War of Independence; Fox and his supporters were even known to have worn the buff and blue of Washington's soldiers as an act of solidarity. A pariah for much of his career, he spent the latter portion of his life in the political wilderness, though he did return to the front line following Pitt's death in 1806, as Foreign Minister in Grenville's Ministry of All the Talents. He died later the same year, leaving 46 gallstones and £10,000 of gambling debts. John Cartwright, 1740-1824, 'The Father of Reform', enjoyed a distinguished naval career before turning his attention to politics. He championed universal suffrage and annual par … [Click Below for Full Description]

DENNIE, Joseph]: as "Oliver Oldschool, Esq." (John Quincy Adams)
Printed for The Editor & Elizabeth Dickens, Philadelphia, 1802. Periodical. Folio. A collection of 17 weekly issues of *The Port Folio*, containing a series of six satirical poems directed against Thomas Jefferson, specifically concerning his relations with Sally Hemings. Each weekly issue consists of eight pages, untrimmed as originally published, and professionally sewn into four sets of consecutive issues. [Set one]: July 3 - July 31, Nos. 26-30; [set two]: October 2 - October 30, Nos. 39-43; [set three]: November 6 - November 27, Nos. 44-47; [set four]: December 4 - December 18, Nos. 48-50. Overall browning and scattered foxing, the last two issues from December (nos. 49 and 50) are clipped at the bottom right corner (with minimal loss of text), good. Founded by Joseph Dennie and Asbury Dickens in Philadelphia in January 1801, and edited by Dennie, *The Port Folio* quickly became the most important magazine devoted to literature and politics in the United States. During the period of its greatest influence, from 1802 to 1805, Dennie had organized a distinguished circle of mostly pro-Federalist contributors known for their "liveliness, urbanity, and wit." The Republicans and Jefferson in particular were frequently attacked in its pages. Thus when James T. Callender first published the allegation that Jefferson had fathered several children by his slave Sally Hemings (in the September 1st issue of the *Richmond Recorder*), Dennie was quick to exploit and expand upon the charge in this famous series of satirical poems, including one now known to have been written by John Q … [Click Below for Full Description]
