      London: by A. Strahan; for T. Cadell Jun. and W. Davies,, 1802. consisting of the Inferno–Purgatorio–and Paradiso. Translated into English verse, with preliminary essay, notes, and illustrations, By the Rev. Henry Boyd, chaplain to the right honourable the Lord Viscount Charleville. In three volumes. 3 volumes, octavo (228 x 142 mm).

Engraved frontispiece portrait of Dante by Thomas Stothard. First half-title additionally signed in blue ink by Nanny Moore, April 2, 1850, and in pencil by Hugh Stuart Moore, 1876. Gathering D in vol. I and half-title of vol. III spotted, small ink stain at foot of frontispiece trailing across lower edge but not spreading into text block, a very good copy. First edition, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the first half-title "To Joseph Abbot Esqr. as a trifling mark of sincere esteem and friendship from the translator" and signed by Anne J. Boyd on each half-title. The translator Henry Boyd (1748/9–1832), a Church of Ireland clergyman, was the first to publish an English translation of the complete Divine Comedy. "The edition's value was in assisting to re-establish an audience for Dante, whose reputation had suffered a decline in the previous century. It was dedicated to Viscount Charleville, whose chaplain Boyd was until the Irish rising induced him to resign his post" (ODNB). Boyd had previously in 1785 published by subscription a two-volume translation of the Inferno only, with a specimen of the Orlando Furioso of Ariosto, which in itself was only the second English version of the Inferno. Boyd's translation was the version used as captions for John Flaxman's Compositions from the divine poem of Dante Alighieri (1807).

Das Spezifische an Schwarzens Erziehungslehre ist: "Die Kenntnis der Natur des Menschen, Anthropologie, und die genaue Beobachtung seiner Entwicklung hält er für so unentbehrlich, dass er sie als die eine Voraussetzung der Erziehungslehre betrachtet (= Bd. 2 u. 3/1).

Die Erziehung beginnt mit der Geburt des Kindes und endigt mit der Reife des jungen Menschen, wo er dann selbständig und vernünftig seine Bildung durch das Leben fortsetzt . Mit der Erziehung Hand in Hand gehen muß der Unterricht und umgekehrt . Besonderer Erwähnung bedarf Schwarzens Verdienst um die Geschichte der Pädagogik, das um so größer ist, als sein Werk (= Bd. 4) der erste wirklich bedeutende, weil auf Quellenstudium beruhende Versuch einer Geschichte der Erziehung ist" (Herder Lex. d.

        Alexander Hamilton Writes a Female Friend in Puerto Rico, Sympathizing with the Perilous Condition of Haiti as French Control of the Island Deteriorates

      New York City 1802 - Autograph Letter Signed with Initials, to Marie Jeanne Ledoux Caradeux de la Caye, Countess of Caradeux. November 1802. New York City. 1 p., 7 3/4 x 12 5/8 in. Several words obscured by ink stain. "The events of St Domingo chagrine us. [T]he disappointment to your views in that quarter contributes to render us extremely sensible to the disasters of that Colony. When will this disagreeable business end? But when would our interrogations finish, if we should attempt to unravel the very intricate and extraordinary plots in which the affairs of the whole world are embroiled at the present inexplicable conjuncture? We have nothing for it but patience and resignation, and to make the best of what we have without being over solicitous to ameliorate our conditions. This is now completely my philosophy." Historical BackgroundInspired by the French Revolution, the Haitian Revolution began in 1791 when the slaves of the French colony of Saint Domingue (modern Haiti) revolted, killed 4,000 whites, and destroyed more than a thousand plantations. By 1792, they controlled a third of the island, and many whites, including the Caradeux, fled.Hoping to take advantage of the unrest to seize a valuable colony, Spain, which controlled the rest of the island of Hispaniola, and Great Britain invaded. Both Great Britain and Spain supplied the rebels with food and arms. However, they also restored slavery wherever they went, so the majority of Haitians hated them. In response, French commissioners freed the slaves of Saint Domingue, and the National Convention confirmed their action. François-Dominique Toussaint Louverture, a self-educated former domestic slave, joined the Spanish army in opposition to the French planters. In 1794, however, Toussaint Louverture suddenly joined the French and expelled the Spanish from Saint Domingue. He urged the surviving French whites to stay and help him rebuild Saint Domingue. Most of the British army was killed by yellow fever, and they finally withdrew in 1798.By 1800, when Toussaint captured Jacmel, and the French mulatto commander André Rigaud fled, Toussaint effectively ruled Saint Domingue as a dictator. He then led an invasion of Santo Domingo, the Spanish portion of the island of Hispaniola, and freed the slaves there in January 1801. At this time, although he did not sever his ties with France, Toussaint was the de facto ruler of the entire island of Hispaniola. In 1801, he issued a constitution declaring himself governor for life and called for a sovereign black state. In response, Napoleon Bonaparte sent a French force, led by his brother-in-law Charles Leclerc, to reassert French rule and to restore slavery. Leclerc landed at Le Cap in February 1802 and attempted to lure Toussaint to him. When that failed, he declared Toussaint to be an outlaw and rebel.Leclerc divided his forces into four columns, one of which was commanded by General Donatien de Rochambeau, a white supremacist and supporter of slavery who hated the Haitians. At a narrow ravine in the mountains, Toussaint attempted to stop Rochambeau's column, but the French prevailed with heavy losses after hours of brutal combat. A Haitian army in the fort of Crête-à-Pierrot, under the command of Jean-Jacques Dessalines, successfully repulsed repeated French assaults until they were forced to withdraw because of lack of supplies. The arrival of the rainy season brought yellow fever, which killed thousands of French troops.In April 1802, Haitian commander Henri Christophe defected with much of his army to the French. Two weeks later, Toussaint agreed to integrate his remaining troops into the French army in exchange for his freedom. He was later seized by the French and sent to France, where he died in prison in April 1803.Resistance continued in the countryside, and the French army employed mass executions, including gassing in the holds of ships, an invention of General Rochambeau. As it became clear that the . (See website for full description)

        Mémoire ou Coup-d'oeil rapide sur mes différens voyages et mon séjour dans la nation Crëck.

      Paris, Imprimerie de Giguet et Michaud, an XI - 1802, - in-8, [2] ff. n. ch., 332 pp., broché sous couverture d'attente de papier bleu.Qqs rousseurs. Edition originale de cet ouvrage aussi rare que curieux : Jean-Antoine Leclerc dit de Milfort (1752-1821), engagé volontaire à douze ans comme enfant de troupe, émigra en 1775 en Amérique du Nord, sans doute pour échapper aux conséquences d'un duel. Là, il réussit à s'introduire en 1776 au sein de la nation indienne des Creeks (Alabama actuel), apprenant leur langue, adoptant leurs coutumes, et intégré parmi leurs guerriers. C'est à ce titre qu'il intervint dans la Guerre d'indépendance, louvoyant entre Anglais, colons et Espagnols. Revenu en France sous le Directoire, qui le promut général de brigade en 1796, il essaya vainement de faire valoir ses vues sur la constitution d'un domaine colonial français en Louisiane tant sous le Directoire que sous le Consulat : l'ouvrage publié en 1802 avait pour but de convaincre Bonaparte des possibilités offertes par ces vastes territoires et les populations amérindiennes ralliables à la cause française. La vente de la Louisiane en 1803 mit un terme à ses espoirs. Sabin 48 949. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

No place of publication. 嘉慶壬戍 1802. 淸文彚書 or The Complete Collection of the Manchurian Language, is a very comprehensive dictionary of considerable historical importance to Manchu development in Qing Dynasty. The dictionary was composed in 1751 by Qing scholar Li Yanji on the basis of 御制清文鉴 [The Imperial Dictionary of Manchurian Language] and was published by at least three different publishers in Beijing - 三槐堂 [San huai tang], 四合堂 [Si he tang] and 英华堂 [Ying hua tang]. This set was published by 三槐堂 [San huai tang]. It is unclear whether these editions were published simultaneously or whether reprints were published around the same time.The dictionary was published with the aim of supporting the "Language Standardisation" policy set up under the government of Qianlong Emperor. It lists the Manchu words in alphabetical order each with its Chinese translation. It was one of the first comprehensive and user-friendly Manchu-Chinese dictionaries and many dictionaries in late Qing Dynasty developed from it. It should be noted that the place of publication of this set 京都[Jingdu] is an old name for Beijing and not, as it could be easily be confused with, Kyoto.The accompanying eight volume Supplement was published with the aim of solving issues of the ambiguities which appeared in 淸文彚書 [The Complete Collection of the Manchurian Language], for example, loanwords transliterated from Chinese, etc. 宜興 [Yixing] (? - 1809) a member of the royal family of Qing Empire, accumulated over 7900 new words and compiled 淸文补彚 [The Supplements to the Manchurian Language] in 1786. These new words which appeared after the standardisation of the Manchurian language are presented in the same format and style as the earlier dictionary however the Supplement distinguishes itself from earlier works by adding any structural changes of words such as variants.Together these two works comprise a very important reference of 27,900 words or phrases and together are regarded as among the most important Chinese-Manchu reference works of the Qing Dynasty. Still very useful for scholars of Manchu to this day and certainly regarded as indispensable for scholars of the Manchurian language during the Qing Dynasty.

      , February 13, 1802. February 13, 1802. The February 13, 1802 edition of The Tree of Liberty (Pittsburgh: Printed and Published by John Israel) four pages, 10.75" x 17.25", together with a two page "Extra", 8.25" x 11.25". Some marginal tears and chips not affecting text, light dampstain and creases.Philadelphia-born printer John Israel established The Tree of Liberty in August 1800 on the eve of the historic election of 1800 between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Israel, an ardent Jeffersonian Republican, had moved to western Pennsylvania in 1798 where he founded the Herald of Liberty in Washington, Pennsylvania. In 1800 a group of Western Pennsylvania Republicans including Hugh Henry Brackenridge and Albert Gallatin, requested Israel set up his press in Pittsburgh to counter the town's decidedly Federalist organ, John Scull's Gazette. Little is known about Israel's family background, but he is believed to have been Jewish and most likely offspring of the prominent Israel family of Philadelphia (it appears from the frequent anti-Semitic attacks made upon Israel in the Gazette that at least his opponents considered him Jewish). Israel was not only a pro-Jefferson newspaper editor, he was also a successful political organizer and party leader instrumental in organizing Republican electoral victories over the Federalists. In 1802, Jefferson rewarded Israel for his efforts with the lucrative contract to print federal legislation and other official notices in Pittsburgh, stripping the Federalist Gazette of a steady cash flow. Soon afterwards, the State of Pennsylvania, now under the leadership of Republican Thomas McKean, awarded Israel the contract to print state laws. Israel continued to publish the Tree until December 1805 when he sold the paper and moved south to Washington County. He died the following year from blood poisoning, just before his thirtieth birthday.*Israel is rewarded for his loyalty and authorized to print federal proceedings "By Authority". The Tree, Jefferson's political mouthpiece in western Pennsylvania, is awarded the lucrative contract to print federal legislation and proceeding for Pittsburgh by the new administration. From this issue onward, Israel would print the legislation and proceedings of Congress with the heading "PUBLISHED BY AUTHORITY. The first piece of legislation Israel printed was, interestingly enough, the act reapportioning congressional seats after the second federal census â€

        Institutionum Medicinae Practicae quas auditoribus suis praelegebat. Editio Quarta Veneta

      Josephum Orlandelli - Francisci ex Nicolao Pezzana, Venetiis 1802 - 8 voll. in 4 tomi in-8° (187x125mm), pp. (8), 216; 379; (8), 388; 277; XVI, 224; (4), 240; XVI, 324; 279; legatura coeva mezza pelle marrone con titolo, filetti e tomaisons in oro e fregi in oro e a secco ai dorsi. Piatti marmorizzati. Tagli a spruzzo azzurri. Ottimo stato. Quarta edizione veneziana di questa monumentale opera medica di Giovanni Battista Borsieri (Civezzano, Trento, 1725-Milano, 1785), allora onorata da larga fortuna e tempestivamente tradotta in italiano, inglese e tedesco. L'opera, enciclopedica nell'impostazione, tratta in prevalenza delle febbri, dei morbi esantematici, delle malattie cerebrali, nervose, cardiache e gastro-intestinali. Il Borsieri, allievo a Padova del Morgagni e del Vallisnieri, ma laureatosi in medicina a Bologna, compì il perfezionamento a Firenze. Chiamato a Faenza per collaborare con le autorità locali nel tentativo di debellare un'epidemia di febbri gastriche che infieriva da tempo in quella città, nel 1770 fu invitato dal ministro Firmian ad insegnare medicina pratica all'Università di Pavia, dove rimase dieci anni e di cui fu nominato anche rettore. L'arciduca Ferdinando d'Asburgo, governatore della Lombardia, lo volle a Milano come proprio medico personale, servizio che occupò fino alla morte. Cfr. (varie edizioni): Wellcome, II, 206.

      February 13, 1802.

Some marginal tears and chips not affecting text, light dampstain and creases.<br /><br />Philadelphia-born printer John Israel established The Tree of Liberty in August 1800 on the eve of the historic election of 1800 between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson. Israel, an ardent Jeffersonian Republican, had moved to western Pennsylvania in 1798 where he founded the Herald of Liberty in Washington, Pennsylvania.

The Tree, Jefferson's political mouthpiece in western Pennsylvania, is awarded the lucrative contract to print federal legislation and proceeding for Pittsburgh by the new administration. From this issue onward, Israel would print the legislation and proceedings of Congress with the heading "PUBLISHED BY AUTHORITY.

Taunting the Federalists who had been roundly defeated at the polls in 1800, Israel crowed: <I>"From the late conduct of the ex federalists not only in this place, but throughout the state, it appears that an attempt will be made to rally their disjoined forces previous to the next election, and to raise at least the appearance of opposition…"</I> The issue also features an extract from a letter chronicling a slave rebellion in Guadalupe, December 14, 1801: <I>"I am afraid we shall be glad to make our escape with our lives before many days. The negroes have made two attempts to rise; the first was in Bassaterre, about the first of this month, but without any success – they only stabbed four men in the town, and did some mischief in the country; the second was in this place on the night of the 10th inst. and they also were dispersed, and their ring-leaders made prisoners. -- Last night the negroes began their riot in the market place again, which greatly alarmed the people. The whites were running with their wives and children from every direction, begging of us to take them on board of our vessels... A flag of truce which had been sent to Domingo, had returned yesterday with a very unfavorable answer; the words were, No, we will treat with no negroes or mulatoes, neither shall they hold any office; but we will be there in a few days with a fleet of men of war and transports and will shew you your places." </I> <br /><br />An historic issue of a key Jeffersonian newspaper in the trans-Appalachian west.<br /><br />*Carl E. Prince "John Israel: Printer and Politician on the Pennsylvania Frontier, 1798 - 1805" Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography, (January 1967), 46-55. As to Israel's Judaism, Prince notes in a footnote: "Biographic data cited below indicates clearly that Israel was generally thought of by the pubic as being Jewish. His own identification in his connection, however, has never been clearly established; ambivalent evidence exists. On a few occasions Israel referred himself as a Jew. On the other hand, he was married by a Protestant minister. What is important for the purposes of this article is that most western Pennsylvanians identified him as Jewish."; Pages 48 notes , 55. <br /><br />

        The Divina Commedia of Dante Alighieri

      T. Cadell Jun. and W Davies 1802 - T. Cadell Jun. and W. Davies, in the Strand, London, 1802. Three volumes. Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) was a major Italian poet. He has been called the father of the Italian language and is one of the most admired and influential poets ever. His book, The Divina Commedia, is a masterpiece of world literature and is considered by many to be the greatest poem of the Middle Ages. The Divina Commedia describes Dante&#146;s journey through Hell (Inferno), Purgatory (Purgatorio) and Paradise (Paradiso). The work was translated into many European languages well before it was translated into English. The lack of English translations was due in part to Dante&#146;s Catholic views thought to be of little interest to Protestant English audiences. The first complete translation of the Divina Commedia, this set, was first published in 1802. The translator was the Rev. Henry Boyd. Boyd was most likely educated at Trinity College, Dublin. At the time the book was published, the Rev. Boyd was the vicar of Rathfryland, County Down, Northern Ireland. He was also chaplain to the Right Honourable Charles William, Lord Viscount Charleville, to whom this work was dedicated. The books are bound in contemporary mottled leather that has started to flake. The front cover hinges show some cracking at the bottom but are still very sound.

        Illustrations of the Huttonian Theory of the Earth. [First edition].

      Printed for Cadell and Davies, London, and William Creech, Edinburgh 1802 - Edinburgh, octavo, xx, 528 p. ***CONTENT: In 1788, in a preliminary paper, and in 1795, elaborated in book form, Scotsman James Hutton presented his perceptive hypothesis about the vast length of geologic time and his conclusion that geologic processes have always operated at roughly the same rate as they do today. These concepts, later named "uniformitarianism", are foundational ideas of modern geology. Unfortunately, the general public had little exposure to Hutton's works, and his writing style was awkward and overly preoccupied with natural theology. Following the death of his friend Hutton, John Playfair (1748-1819) prepared this treatise, clarifying and amplifying Hutton's writings using direct, elegant language and a simplicity of style. He added further 'illustrations' based on his personal observations. In large part because of this volume, Hutton's theories became popularized; he is now regarded as the 'father of modern geology'. Challinor calls this work "a masterpiece of geological literature". ***CONDITION: This is a VG copy, bound in contemporary full tree calf, with gilt-decorated covers and backstrip. The covers are clean and sound, but a bit worn at the extremities. Joints and hinges tender but holding, binding very firm. The title page is toned around the margin, but the other text pages are typically fresh, clean and bright. Save for a tiny Henry Sotheran (London) bookseller's label on the front pastedown, there are no indications of previous ownership. This is one of the most important geology books ever published, and is exceedingly rare in nice condition. BMNH 1584. Ward and Carozzi 1797. Challinor, 1971, The history of British geology, p. 70.

        An Account of the English Colony in New South Wales, with Remarks on the Dispositions, Customs, Manners, &c. of the Native Inhabitants of that Country. To Which are Added, Some Particulars of New Zealand. [With] An Account of the English Colony. Vol. II. [adding:] An Account of a Voyage performed by Captain Flinders and Mr. Bass; by which the existence of a strait separating Van Dieman's Land from the continent of New Holland was ascertained.

      T. Cadell, Jun. and W. Davies, London 1802 - Two volumes, quarto, [1798]: 2 charts, 18 plates and four textual vignettes, the vignettes most unusually repeated on additional folding plates, a fine thick paper issue bound with the half-title, [1802]: one chart, five plates (three with original hand-colouring) and four textual vignettes (two with hand-colouring), bound with the half-title; a most attractive set in beautiful full tree-calf bindings by Aquarius, gilt, double spine labels, speckled edges. A beautiful and special set of this classic First Fleet book, in superb condition. This is an exceptionally handsome copy of the first edition of the complete work, published as two separate volumes four years apart. The first volume is from a very rare issue on thick paper with the engraved vignettes that appear in the text also bound in as separately printed engravings on fold-out sheets. Collins had arrived with the First Fleet as Judge-Advocate and was Secretary to Governor Phillip. His book is a valuable account of the early settlement by an educated and observant resident of ten years, and was the last of the Australian foundation books to be published. This majestic work, often described as the earliest history of Australia as an English colony, contains the most detailed and painstaking of all descriptions of the voyage and first settlement found in any of the early narratives. The book is illustrated with full-page engravings prepared in London by the well-known artist Edward Dayes from sketches done in the colony by the convict artist Thomas Watling which include the first views to have been published of British settlements at Sydney and Parramatta.The first volume, published in 1798, is scarce today. In this set, as well as having the unusual feature of the extra engravings, the first volume is the rare thick paper issue (the text block measuring 68 mm.); very few copies are known in this form (apparently unique to the first volume as we have found no record of a thick paper issue of the second volume). A similar thick paper copy of the first volume was offered for sale by Maggs Brothers in catalogue 807 (1952): Frank Maggs noted at the time that this was the only such copy he had seen. Ferguson mentions a "large paper" issue but Wantrup was unable to locate an example and speculates that Ferguson may have used "large paper" loosely and may have been referring to a copy similar to the Maggs example.The second volume, which came out four years after the first and is if anything slightly more difficult to find, ". is of the greatest importance, not only for its detailed chronicle of events but because of its narrative of voyages and expeditions of discovery? The journals of Bass and Flinders are of particular importance since Bass's journal has never been recovered and ? the accounts of inland expeditions recorded in the journals of John Price and Henry Hacking are singularly interesting. Quite apart from the exploration interest of these journals, they provide the first report of the existence of the koala, the earliest recorded sighting of a wombat on mainland Australia and the first report of the discovery of the lyrebird, which is for the first time described and illustrated in colour?' (Wantrup). In excellent condition in very good modern bindings. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Cypripedium Calceolus / Sabot des Alpes [Larger Yellow Ladyslipper]

      Paris: Imprimerie de Didot jeune, 1802. Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by de Gouy. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection inLes Liliacéesfrom which this work comes.Les Liliacéesis one of two Redouté masterworks, the other being Les Roses. These works demonstrate the appropriateness of the accolade "Raphael of Flowers", for one is constantly impressed by the exquisite compositional sense and clarity of vision. More than with any other painter, one sees in Redouté's flowers living, breathing beings at their most beautiful moment.Cf. Nissen BBI 1597; cf.Great Flower Books (1990), p 128; cf. Dunthorne p 231; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8747; cf. MacPhaeil, Redouteana, 10.

        Poetical Effusions from Fairy Camp by Powell Snell, Esq. Captain in the South Gloucester Militia. In two volumes.

      Tewkesbury: W. Dyde, 1802. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good +. Two volumes. Tewkesbury: W. Dyde, 1802-1803. First edition. 12mo. [iv],192,vii,[i]; [iv],200,vi pp. Decorative woodcut head- and tail-pieces throughout. §Lacks title-pages: these appear to have been discarded by the binder. RARE: BL and Bodleian copies only. Not held at National Army Museum. §Powell Snell - of Guiting Grange, Guiting Power, Gloucestershire; a barrister by profession - was a Captain of Militia from the early 1770s, and raised the First Troop of Gloucestershire Gentleman and Yeomanry (now the Royal Gloucestershire Hussars) in 1795, at Cheltenham. He contributed poetry to the Gentleman's Magazine in the late 18th-century under a soubriquet, and Poetical Effusions from Fairy Camp - his sole known separate publication - seems to have been an attempt to collect his writings as he neared the end of his life. His 'My Own Epitaph, To be in the Church Yard, on a common Stone', rather touchingly concludes the second volume; he died about a year after its publication. From references in several poems (Louis Weltje, Sir John Lade), Snell - by his own acknowledgement a lover of the bottle - appears to have been personally associated with the 'fast' circle of the Prince Regent, and references to Zachary Moore and passing mention of Sterne's writings (whom Snell clearly admired) indicate possible youthful association with the circle of John Hall-Stevenson. Snell seems to have enjoyed a contemporary reputation in fashionable circles as a minor bel esprit. The poems include the usual odes, epitaphs, epigrams, puns, &c., but the overall tone is for occasional, social pieces, and the subject-matter tends towards the local: Gloucestershire and Worcestershire; Cheltenham, Bath, Bristol; female 'toasts' of the day, provincial drinking-houses, etc. 'Fairy Camp' is described by the author as 'a whimsical Retreat of P[owell] S[nell]... So call'd by an elegant lady of taste...Constructed on a small knoll, in the middle of a high hill of about forty yards diameter, in a semicircular plantation of firs and forest-trees, and surrounded by a fanciful railing, defended by a Royal Salute of brass guns...The Marquee built of wood resembling a real one, having the proper facings of the South Gloucestershire Militia. Gothic windows and door; the eaves ornamented with iron laurel-branches, between which, on Gala days, are placed small flags...'. Neatly bound in full contemporary straight-grained red morocco, gilt lettering, gilt and blind decoration, all edges gilt. Ink presentation inscription 'From Emma to Bruce London 9th Feby. 1838' to preliminary blank in each volume, and ink ownership name of recipient - identified by 19th-century owner's pencilled note as Alexander Bruce Dennistoun Sword '(1808-?)', also 1838 - to front pastedowns. Further 19th-century ink ownership name of one A. Whittle to each volume. Occasional internal soiling and trace of removal of early paper label to endpapers. The MISSING TITLE-PAGES aside, a very good set of the verse of an interesting minor poet in a neat & attractive contemporary binding.
