Lamb, Charles
London: Printed by T. Plummer, Seething-Lane for G. and J. Robinson, Paternoster-Row, 1802. First edition. [iv], 128 pp. 1 vols. Sm. 8vo. Lamb's first play and Mary's first appearance in print. Pages 106-7 contain Mary Lamb's poem "Helen", her first appearance in print. At the end are some "Curious Fragments extracted from a common-place book" ascribed to Robert Burton, which are in fact by Lamb. Regarding "Helen," Charles Lamb writes, in a letter to Coleridge: "How do you like this little epigram? It is not my writing, nor had I any finger in it. If you concur with me in thinking it very elegant and very original, I shall be tempted to name the author to you. I will just hint that it is almost or quite a first attempt." This copy owned by John Matthew Gutch (1776-1861), Lamb's contemporary, schoolfellow and lifelong friend, and proprietor of "Felix Farley's Bristol Journal", in which some Lamb writing appeared. Roff, pp. 47-52. Provenance: John Gutch (holograph transcription of Lamb's "What is an Album?" on rfep); Robert S Pirie (bookplate). Uncut in publisher's gray-green boards, rebacked to style. In custom red morocco-backed slipcase.

Browne, John.
London: J. Smeeton, 1802. 8vo, disbound. Frontis. engraving, 44 pp. Enthralling narrative of Englishman John Browne, detailing his journey with five fellow military deserters from St. Helena Island, three of whom make their way to Brazil, ending with Browne's visit to Cape Town and return to St. Helena where he delivers this narrative under oath. John Browne's narrative-the veracity of which was apparently confirmed by deposition-commences in St. Helena in 1799. Populated with 2,000 inhabitants, including 600 slaves, and a garrison of 500 men, St. Helena is supplied with European manufactures by the Company's ships in exchange for "various kinds of refreshments." Browne, who belongs to the first company of artillery at the garrison, explains that while on St. Helena his friend William M'Kinnon-"a Scotch highlander" and "gunner of the second company"-frequently expressed his dissatisfaction with being "banished from the world, and cooped up, as he called it, in a little isle; and he avowed, that he would willingly run any risk to effect his return to Great Britain." After Browne fails to dissuade M'Kinnon from trying to escape, M'Kinnon is able to persuade Browne to accompany him; in turn, they convince four of their military comrades to desert with them. Upon the arrival of the American ship Columbia in the bay, which "seemed propitious to an enterprise," the six men secure the assistance of the Americans, who furnish them with a whaleboat, rather than running the risk of having them on board in the bay. The escapees row out to sea with "25 pounds of bread and a keg of 13 g … [Click Below for Full Description]

United States Congress
E. Bronson, printed by Thos. Smith, Philadelphia, 1802. [2],324pp. Half title. Bound in original period leather with gilt spine label. Some scattered foxing, lightly toned. Some worm spots, though it does not appear to affect any text. Interesting provenance, as it was part of the Georgetown (South Carolina) Library Society collection, with their 1803 dated bookplate on the front pastedown. An important record of the evolution of American law and the development of judicial independence in the early republic. This is one of two printings of the debates over the repeal of the Judiciary Act of 1801. This version is edited from a Federalist perspective, with critical comments on the debates as recorded in the NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, an organ of the Jeffersonian Republicans. The debate over the repeal of the Judiciary Act of 1801 addressed issues of judicial review and the role, size, and authority of the judiciary branch, issues which led ultimately to the landmark case of Marbury v. Madison. The 1801 act, passed by a Federalist Congress, reduced the number of Supreme Court justices from six to five, created new circuits, and allowed outgoing President John Adams to appoint several new federal judges, the so-called "midnight judges." Jefferson opposed the 1801 act, and though it was overturned by the Judiciary Act of 1802, the federal judiciary remained fundamentally unaltered. The Marbury v. Madison decision of 1803 solidified the notion of judicial review of legislation and elevated the Supreme Court to a level of equality with the executive and legislative branches.

The scarce first edition of Nathaniel Bowditch's The New American Practical Navigator. Newburyport, Mass., 1802. 8vo. 5.5 x 9". 590 pages, six full page plates. Lacks the folding frontis map/chart and endpapers. Other than some foxing, the stain to the upper left margins throughout, occasional tears, and worn lower corner through first half of the book, the text is very good. Full early leather, joints strong, red leather spine label. All told, a very good copy of a book usually found heavily used. This fundamental and highly influential American work on navigation -- still printed and in use today -- grew out of Bowditch's revisions and corrections of John Hamilton Moore's popular, and often reprinted New Practical Navigator, first published in America in 1799.

Edward Donovan (1768–1837) - Born in Cork, Ireland, he was an avid collector of natural history specimens, purchased mainly at auctions- specimens from voyages of exploration. He was a fellow of the Linnean Society and the Wernerian Society which gave him access to the best collections and libraries in London. It was quite common for private collectors to open small public museums, and in 1807 he founded the London Museum and Institute of Natural History. This exhibited several hundred cases of world birds, mammals, reptiles, fish, molluscs, insects, corals and other invertebrates and botanical specimens and other exotica alongside his British collections. He published numerous, now highly prized, works on natural history but was extraordinarily financially unsuccessful and he died penniless in 1837 leaving a large family destitute.

Marvin quotes and endorses Sir William Jones's assessment of Pothier's treatises: "For my own part, I am so charmed with them, that if my undissembled fondness for the study of jurisprudence, were never to produce any greater benefit to the public, than barely the introduction of Pothier to the acquaintances of my countrymen, I should think that I had, in some measure, discharged the debt which every man, according to Lord Coke owes to his profession."

Walter Scott
Kelso: One of the eight-hundred copies originally published in 1802, which sold out within it's first six months of publication. Consisting of historical and romantic ballads collected in the southern counties of Scotland, founded upon local tradition. Featuring the original engraved frontispiece to volume one. Collated complete. Scott's interest in the folk traditions of the Border region stemmed from early childhood stays at Sandyknowe, when he heard ballads from the lips of his grandmother Barbara Scott and his favourite Aunt Jenny. As an older boy, he thrilled to the medieval ballads collected in Bishop Thomas Percy's Reliques of Ancient English Poetry. Scott began collecting ballads himself in yearly trips to the Borders from 1792 onwards. He first had the idea of publishing a collection in 1796, but it was not until he renewed contact with his old schoolfriend, the printer James Ballantyne, that the idea bore fruit. In 1799 Ballantyne had published An Apology for Tales of Terror which contained ballads by Robert Southey, Matthew 'Monk' Lewis, John Aikin, and Scott himself. He now welcomed the idea of publishing a volume devoted entirely to ballads, a genre rendered newly fashionable by Wordsworth's and Coleridge's Lyrical Ballads. The volume's success laid the foundations of James Ballantyne's career as a printer. 'I shall ever think', he wrote, 'the printing the Scottish Minstrelsy one of the most fortunate circumstances of my life'. Complete with the original two volumes, although without the later published third volume, which was published a year later. CONDITION … [Click Below for Full Description]

Consisting of historical and romantic ballads collected in the southern counties of Scotland, founded upon local tradition. Featuring the original engraved frontispiece to volume one. Collated complete. Scott's interest in the folk traditions of the Border region stemmed from early childhood stays at Sandyknowe, when he heard ballads from the lips of his grandmother Barbara Scott and his favourite Aunt Jenny. As an older boy, he thrilled to the medieval ballads collected in Bishop Thomas Percy's Reliques of Ancient English Poetry. Scott began collecting ballads himself in yearly trips to the Borders from 1792 onwards. He first had the idea of publishing a collection in 1796, but it was not until he renewed contact with his old schoolfriend, the printer James Ballantyne, that the idea bore fruit. In 1799 Ballantyne had published An Apology for Tales of Terror which contained ballads by Robert Southey, Matthew 'Monk' Lewis, John Aikin, and Scott himself. He now welcomed the idea of publishing a volume devoted entirely to ballads, a genre rendered newly fashionable by Wordsworth's and Coleridge's Lyrical Ballads. The volume's success laid the foundations of James Ballantyne's career as a printer. 'I shall ever think', he wrote, 'the printing the Scottish Minstrelsy one of the most fortunate circumstances of my life'. Complete with the original two volumes, although without the later published third volume, which was published a year later. CONDITION In cont … [Click Below for Full Description]

United States Congress
E. Bronson, printed by Thos. Smith, Philadelphia, 1802. [2],324pp. Half title. Bound in original period leather with gilt spine label. Some scattered foxing, lightly toned. Some worm spots, though it does not appear to affect any text. Interesting provenance, as it was part of the Georgetown (South Carolina) Library Society collection, with their 1803 dated bookplate on the front pastedown. An important record of the evolution of American law and the development of judicial independence in the early republic. This is one of two printings of the debates over the repeal of the Judiciary Act of 1801. This version is edited from a Federalist perspective, with critical comments on the debates as recorded in the NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, an organ of the Jeffersonian Republicans. The debate over the repeal of the Judiciary Act of 1801 addressed issues of judicial review and the role, size, and authority of the judiciary branch, issues which led ultimately to the landmark case of Marbury v. Madison. The 1801 act, passed by a Federalist Congress, reduced the number of Supreme Court justices from six to five, created new circuits, and allowed outgoing President John Adams to appoint several new federal judges, the so-called "midnight judges." Jefferson opposed the 1801 act, and though it was overturned by the Judiciary Act of 1802, the federal judiciary remained fundamentally unaltered. The Marbury v. Madison decision of 1803 solidified the notion of judicial review of legislation and elevated the Supreme Court to a level of equality with the executive and legislative branches.

HORNEMAN, or HORNEMANN, Frederick
London, W. Bulmer and Co., 1802. 4to. Contemporary speckled calf, covers gilt-tooled with floral borders, rebacked, retaining original lettering-piece; pp. iv, xxvi, 188, 188* [one leaf Postscript], 189-195; 3 maps (2 large folding one with hand-coloured routes); edges of the boards a bit worn, one map with repaired tear along fold, otherwise very clean and fresh; bookplate Arthur Kelly Kelly inside front cover. First English edition. Hornemann was selected by the African Association to explore westward in a search for the source of the Niger from Cairo, thus complementing Mungo Park's travels eastward from the river Gambia. To this end, in September 1798 he joined at Cairo a merchant caravan travelling from Mecca and by this means crossed the Libyan desert to reach Mourzouk (Murzuk), the capital of the Fezzan. No more was heard from him after January 1800 after setting out in disguise from Tripoli across the Sahara for Bornu. His published journal includes several appendices, including observations on the travels by William Young (Secretary of the African Association), James Rennell and William Marsden. The two folding maps by Rennell show Hornemann's route and a more general map of North Africa which compares the travels of Hornemann, Park, Bruce and Browne and illustrates the extent of European knowledge of the area. Hornemann 're-discovered the oases of Siwa and Aujila, famous during Classical times and was the first white person to cross the lava desert of Harudj-el-Asued on the pilgrims' route to Timbuktu. When Heinrich Schiffer visited Hornemann's route in 1957 he r … [Click Below for Full Description]
