        The friend of women: translated from the French of Bourdier De Villemert. By Alexander Morrice.

      London: printed by Knight and Compton, for the author. 1802. 8vo., (2) + v - vii + (1) + (5) - 164pp., original boards, a little soiled, neatly rebacked with printed spine label, entirely uncut. A good large copy. First edition of this translation. Boudier de Villemert's popular treatise on women, first published in French in Paris (1758), was reprinted many times and translated into English both as The Ladies Friend> and as The Friend of Women>. It seems to have been particularly popular in America with translations published in New Haven (1784 &c.), Philadelphia (1771 &c.), and Danbury (Conn.) (1794). A London printing appeared in 1766. The book itself, far from contributing to any concept of women's emancipation, painted a traditional portrait of the 18th century European woman, with sections on the 'studies suitable for women', on the 'occupations of women', pleasures, 'the luxury of women', 'dress of women', marriage, education of children, 'domestic government', and more. Alexander Morrice, the translator, dedicates the book to Her Royal Highness, Caroline, Princess of Wales. It was, he suggests, 'intended to raise the female sex to their entitled rank in society'.

        Nouvelle théorie de la formation des filons. Application de cette théorie à l'exploitation des mines, particulièrement de celles de Freyberg ... Nouvelle édition ...Paris, Villiers, 1802. 8vo. Original publisher's blue wrappers, untrimmed.

      Ward 2306; for the author: DSB XIV, pp. 256-264. Second, corrected edition of d'Aubuisson's French translation of Werner's famous Neue Theorie von der Enstehung der Gänge mit Anwendung auf den Bergbau. A renowned mineralogist, "Werner is best known for his contribution to the founding of geology as a science" (DSB). The present work describes a theory of the origin of ore deposits. "Werner formulated basic questions about the origin and history of veins and their contents, established critera for determining the relative age of veins and vein materials, and presented a comparative study of the structure of veins and rock masses" (DSB). The translator and editor, Jean François d'Aubuisson, was a student of Werner's. The front wrapper nearly detached, but otherwise in very good condition and untrimmed.

        Travels through the Southern Provinces of the Russian Empire, in the Years 1793 and 1794.

      A. Strahan for T.N. Longman O. Rees and others London -03 1802 - Two volumes 4to (27.3 x 22.5 cm). xxiii including title, 552; xxx incl. title, 523 pp., in all with 28 vignettes including 23 hand-coloured, 51 numbered plates of which 25 folding and 43 hand-coloured, all after Geissler mostly engraved by him and Metland, 4 engr. maps incl. one hand-coloured and 3 folding by Russel, most engravings protected by tissue guards; very occasionnal light offsetting or spotting. Contemporary polished calf, spines with raised bands, gilt and lettered in gilt in compartments, marbled edges; re-hinged, joints skilfully restored. Fine copy of the first edition in English of "an extremely charming colour plate book [which] deserves a place in every colour plate book collection for its numerous attractive coloured vignettes, an unusual feature" (Tooley). Pallas' second and most picturesque travel, which lasted 6 years from 1768 to 1774, took his team (including the young artist Geissler, as well as Pallas' wife and daughter) in a scientific journey along the Volga to Astrakhan, the Caspian Sea, and then the Caucasus and 'Taurida', that is the Crimea, to which the entire second volume is dedicated. "These travels into the Crimea and to the Caucasus are less confined to scientific objects and therefore are more generally interesting than his former work" (Cox). A handsome production due mainly to the numerous attractive and charming hand-coloured illustrations which appear as vignettes in the text as well as additional plates. They depict the natives of the regions traversed, their costumes and occupations, the scenery and landscapes, showing for example fine views of Bakhchisaray, the Sebastopol and Balaklava bays. This example is especially attractive for its vivid colours and lovely contemporary binding. Abbey Travel 222; Cox I, 199; Hiler 683; Tooley 357. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Musen-Almanach, für das Jahr 1802.

      Tübingen: in der Cotta'schen Buchhandlung 12mo (16cm; 6.25"). vi, 293, [1] pp.. 1802 Poetry, including lyric poetry by the two editors and such others as "Inhumanus," "Sophie B[ernhardi]," "Bonaventura," "Mnioch," and "Novalis." Bonaventura was the pseudonym of Friedrich Wilhelm Joseph Schelling and Novalis the pseudonym of Georg Philipp Friedrich Freiherr von Hardenberg; the latter's two poems were from his as then unpublished novel, Heinrich von Ofterdingen. This is => the first issue of Schlegel & Tieck's literary annual, patterned on the original Musen-Almanach (1796–1800) of Schiller, to which both were contributors. They broke with Schiller's adherence to the "old" and championed Romanticism in their publication. => All of the poems are early entrants in the German Romantic movement. Besides being the title of both those annuals, "Musen-Almanach" is a long-established genre term for these literary annuals published in Germany from ca. 1770 to the middle of the 19th century. Original publisher's wrappers with printed paper spine label, grey-green outside, light blue inside; dust-soiled with spine darkest. Uncut and partially unopened, with occasional light foxing (only). A very good copy.

        The Divina Commedia of Dante Alighieri, Consisting of the Inferno - Purgatorio - and Paradiso

      London: A. Strahan for T. Cadell, 1802. First English language edition. A lovely set of the first complete translation into English of Dante's "Divine Comedy." Full contemporary tree calf, spines expertly rebacked to style, morocco spine lables, gilt borders and spine panels. Three 8vo volumes (pages 216 x 132 mm), collating: vi, [2], 408; [iv], 56, [ii (divisional title)], 57-62, 65-384 (complete); [iv], 420pp., engraved frontispiece portrait plate of Dante by Thomas Stothard in vol.1, half-titles in volumes 2 and 3, complete (despite the funny numbering sequence in volume 2). A few pages lightly foxed (heaviest on the first title page), but on the whole an excellent set. One of the world's great masterpieces and a foundational text of Italian literature. The Comedy took over a decade for Dante to write, he worked on it in exile, having been sent out of his native Florence in 1302, when his political faction fell out of favor. The work's genius was quickly recognized -- Boccaccio himself was so obsessed with it that he was responsible for adding the prefix "Divine." Over the years, it has influenced countless writers, among them Ezra Pound, T. S. Eliot, and James Joyce. Borges claimed it was "the best book literature has achieved." Boyd (1748/49 - 1832), a member of the Irish clergy, was responsible for the first English translation of the Inferno in 1785 as well as the complete work in this 1802 edition. His translation would help bring Dante back into literary circles aften he had fallen by the critical wayside in the aftermath of the Renaissance and Enlightenment. The "Divine Comedy" soon regained its popularity; before the 19th century was up Longfellow would also try his hand at a translation and William Blake would make drawings of some of its more famous passages.

        The Book of Common Prayer, and administration of the Sacraments, and other rites and ceremonies of the Church, according to the use of the United Church of England and Ireland: Together with the Psalter, or Psalms of David, pointed as they are to be sung or said in churches.

      London: Pub. for John Reeves (pr. by W. Bulmer) 8vo (24 cm, 9.5"). vi, [694] pp.. 1802 There were minor differences between the Prayer Books of the Church of England and the Church of Ireland up until 1801, the year that the churches merged; the various 1801 BCPs were the first to use the "United Church" designation. John Reeves had been appointed king's printer in 1800, and edited his own version of the BCP, of which this is the second edition; the separate title-page following the preliminary matter is dated 1801. (That preliminary matter, offering historical and liturgical commentary, is extensive and interesting.) Fore-edge: This beautiful example bears a subtly shaded => fore-edge painting showing Westminster Abbey in the background behind a waterfront view with sailboats. Binding: Full straight-grain dark olive green morocco, covers framed in elegant feather and pearl twist gilt roll, turn-ins with floral gilt roll. Stone-pattern marbled endpapers. All edges gilt.

        Infidel Father, The

      London: Printed by A. Strahan, 1802. - Jane West's Attack on Atheism"An Overcharged Picture of the Vanity, Extravagance, and Self-Importance"[WEST, Mrs. Jane]. The Infidel Father; By the author of "A Tale of the Times," "A Gossip's Story," &c. In three volumes. London: Printed by A. Strahan, 1802. First edition. Three small octavo volumes (6 1/4 x 4 inches; 159 x 101 mm.). iv, 306 pp; [ii, blank], iii-viii, 345, [1, advertisements] pp; iv, 346 pp. Bound ca. 1802 by Jacques of Chichester (with his binders ticket on the front paste-down of volume one) in quarter brown calf over marbled boards with vellum tips. Smooth spines decoratively tooled in gilt with a 'feather' design, red morocco labels lettered in gilt (label on volume two replaced). Light wear to joints and spine extremities, still an excellent and untouched (apart from one spine label) set in its original 'provincial' binding."The particular design of the present work is, to shew [sic] the superiority which religious principle possesses, when compared with a sense of honour, moral fitness, or a love of general applause. The story is confessedly subordinate to this aim; and those who dislike it will observe, that the argumentative part is not affected by the faults of the narrative. The episodal characters have a use besides relieving the sombrous hue of the principal personages. I wish they may be considered as an overcharged picture of the vanity, extravagance, and self-importance, that for some years infected the middle class of society, threatening destruction to the sound sense, decent propriety, and manly virtues of this most important portion of the community." (Introduction).Jane West (1758–1852), who published as Prudentia Homespun and Mrs. West, was an English novelist, poet, playwright, and writer of conduct literature and educational tracts.In 1800 she wrote to the man of letters Thomas Percy, bishop of Dromore, seeking his patronage and describing herself as self-instructed and interested in poetry from an early age. By 1783 she was married to Thomas West (d. 1823), a yeoman farmer of Little Bowden, Leicestershire. Jane West benefited from the acquaintance with Bishop Percy, whom she visited in 1810, although her literary connections were never extensive. She corresponded with Sarah Trimmer and wrote a series of poems in praise of women writers: Trimmer, Elizabeth Carter, Charlotte Turner Smith, whom she visited in Ireland and Anna Seward.West's writing is consistently conservative and didactic, but she did advocate expanding the education for women. Her works serve as a counterpoint to the revolutionary politics of the day: A Tale of the Times (1799) is anti-Jacobin; The Infidel Father (1802) attacks atheism; and one of her conduct texts, Letters to a Young Lady, "forms an ideological counterpart to Mary Wollstonecraft's Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792). Though she was called "strident," her writing was popular in its day for its "improving" qualities. Letters to a Young Man (1801), for example, went through six editions by 1818. Her poems appeared in journals and anthologies and she was a long standing contributor to the Gentleman's Magazine. Today she is best known as the author of a novel that served as a source text for Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility (1811). West's A Gossip’s Story (1796), like Austen’s novel, features two sisters, one full of rational sense and the other of romantic, emotive sensibility. West’s romantic sister shares the same name as Austen’s: Marianne. There are further textual similarities, described in Looser et al. ed's Valancourt Classics edition of the novel (2015). Austen, like Shakespeare before her, significantly reworked West’s plot and characters to suit her own vision.NCBEL III, 772. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Iris Pseudacorus / Iris faux-acore

      Paris: Imprimerie de Didot jeune, 1802. Stipple engraving, printed in colour and finished by hand, engraved by Langlois. Very good condition, with the exception of being trimmed at the top edge into image. 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 "functional" 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 in Les Liliacées from which this work comes. Les Liliacées is 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.

      London: Published by Edward Orme, 1802. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Stadler after Colonel Ward, a skilled amateur artist and member of the Madras Army. Very good condition apart from some light soiling and minor foxing in the margins. An excellent view from Francis Blagdon's "Brief History of Ancient and Modern India," which was comprised of plates after drawings William Orme made of the paintings in the collection of Richard Chase Esquire by Ward and the renowned landscape artists Thomas and William Daniell. Located in a district of Southern India that was once under British rule, the Trichinopoly Rock is a renowned landmark that dominates the town of Tiruchirapalli and overlooks the surrounding landscape. A number of Pallava cave temples are carved into the rock, on top of which sits the ornate multiple-pillared Vinayaka Temple most likely pictured here. Cf. Abbey, Travel , vol. II, 424.; cf.

        Traite des Batiments Propres a Loger les Animaux, qui sont necessaires a l'economie rurale;.

      - Lepizig, Voss 1802. Folio (38x27cm) contemporary quarter calf and mottled boards (rebacked with the original spine preserved); xii,72pp and 50 engraved plates including the frontispiece - plans, elevations etc. Foxing, still a crisp copy. First edition - a German translation appeared a couple of years later - of this handsome, thorough, expert treatise on the architecture of animal husbandry. Heine wrote with an even hand on architecture and rural economy or, as here, both. The book begins with a plan and elevation for a house and estate and continues in sections: stables and all the other varied structures for horses; cows; pigs; sheep; birds, ducks and geese; bees; silkworms; and dogs. The bee and silkworm sections go well beyond architecture and could be self contained monographs on apiculture and sericulture. These are no rustic sheds. These are substantial and considered - quite severe - neo-classical buildings, any one of which would be desirable real estate now. I don't remember another farm building pattern book which insists on applying rules of proportion.

Lovely colour aquatint view of Passaic Falls in New Jersey by a noted British artist: one of the earliest views in New Jersey. This view is one of a series of four views executed by the British artist Alexander Robertson during his visit to the United States in 1798, each engraved in London by Francis Jukes. Deák notes that Passaic Falls was "one of the major natural wonders in America that beckoned early artists" and praises the view, which shows a lone fisherman in the foreground, dwarfed by the vertical walls of stone next to the falls, with the rushing torrent in the background.

Kinsky-Halm, p. 71. Hirsch IV, 267. Dorfmüller-Weinhold, p. 211. Hoboken 2, 153. "Between the Op. 18 Quartets and those of Op. 59 lie about six or seven years and the 'Eroica.' A whole world, in Beethoven's terms... The bridge between the two worlds is built of works other than quartets, and the only piece of chamber music for strings belonging to this interim stage is the splendid Quintet in C, Op. 29 (with two violas), which lies nearer to the first than to the second period. This work, which may be in some ways regarded as a crown to Op. 18, is still shamefully neglected. As a whole it has greater breadth and economy of line than even the F major Quartet, Op. 18, No. 1... Although there is a sufficiency of accomplished five-part writing and one gets the strong impression for much of the time that the quintet is... an enriched quartet, Beethoven contrives also to create from time to time an almost orchestral richness and weight, especially in the vividly resourceful 'storm finale."

Few of Beethoven’s works flow as smoothly and easily as the quintet’s first movement; its melodies move from cadence to cadence with a quality of repose that is delightful.

        Ryacotta, in the Barramah'l

      London: published Thomas Daniell, 1802. Aquatint by and after Thomas & William Daniell, coloured by hand, on 'Whatman' wove paper. Image size: 16 1/2 x 23 1/2 inches. A very fine view of the Barramah'l region that had just recently been wrested from Tippoo Sultan's grasp when the Daniells visited. "Rayakottai formed part of a chain of military outposts used by Tipu Sultan's forces on their campaigns in the Tamil country. A British flag flying proudly from a lookout halfway up the hill proclaims the recent British victory. Rings of walls encircling the central granite rock at successive levels were clearly visible to the Daniells, but can hardly be traced now" (Martinelli/Michell p.144). The Daniells' Oriental Scenery is considered to be the finest illustrated works on India. Thomas Daniell and his nephew William spent nine years in India making studies, sketches and drawings of the scenery, architecture, and antiquities that graced the countryside. They then devoted a further thirteen years to publishing their remarkably accurate aquatints. In Britain, the impact was explosive. A cult of Indian architecture, landscaping and interior decoration arose, with the Royal Pavilion at Brighton as its centerpiece. The Daniells gave the English public their first accurate look at the exotic sub-continent. Their great achievement still lies in their ability to blend the picturesque with the real, resulting in images that capture the European taste for the sublime landscape, while still remaining faithful to their subjects. The Daniells brought the romance of the English landscape to the antiquities of India and provided England with an accurate vision of this wondrous country. Consisting of one hundred and forty-four views, published in six parts, the work was issued in seven stages: three sets of twenty-four plates titled Oriental Scenery with title dates of 1795, 1797, and 1801; twelve plates titled Antiquities of India dated 1799; twenty-four plates titled Hindoo Excavations dated 1803; twenty-four plates titled Views in Hindoostan dated 1807; and twelve further plates of Antiquities of India published without a title page in 1808. All plates were engraved by the Daniells and all are taken from their drawings save the twenty-four plates of Hindoo Excavations , which are after drawings by James Wales.

      Frankfort, 1802. 12mo. Original calf, hinges broken, rubbed. Tears and chipping to fore edge of first seven leaves. Tearing and partial loss to pp.263-264, provided in photostatic facsimile. Light tanning and foxing throughout. Good. In a yellow cloth clamshell box. An early compilation of the laws of Kentucky, preceded only by the 1799 LAWS OF KENTUCKY printed in Lexington. Toulmin, Secretary to the Commonwealth of Kentucky, states in the preface that this volume was published in order to provide easier access to the numerous laws passed by the legislature. "The very confused and undigested state in which the acts of the Legislature of Kentucky have hitherto remained, rendered an arranged collection of them highly necessary both to professional gentlemen and to the public at large. The immethodical manner in which the annual volume of laws is published, is by no means favourable to the ease or information of the reader; but when the acts of ten or twelve sessions are bound up together, just as they happened to be printed, the perplexity which attends a reference to them is disgusting in the highest degree. To remedy this inconvenience, the editor of the following work has distributed the acts of assembly into a variety of classes." The laws of Kentucky are organized into fourteen separate sections including laws relating to boundaries, the United States, the General Assembly, revenue, land titles, courts of justice, and domestic concerns. Laws regarding "agriculture, manufacturing, navigation, and commerce" and "the promotion of knowledge" are also recorded. This volume also includes a table of legal phrases, a summary of criminal law, and acts of the Virginia Assembly relating to rents.
