Contemporary fully grained morocco over cardboard, bound on on 5 raised bands, boards, spine and border panels richly blind and gilt stamped with decorative frames, lines and squares, all in floral motifs as well as gilt cut. Attractive copy of this gorgeously illustrated work on traditional costumes of numerous ethnics living in the Russian Empire, with a focus on Caucasus, Central Asia and Siberia, including „Barabinzian, Bashkirian, Boukharian, Estonian, Finn, Lapp, Kabardinian, Kalmuk, Kirghi, Koriak, Kurilian, Mestcherakian, Mongole, Mordvine, Ostiak, Tartar, Tcheremhisian, Tchouvashian, Tungoose, Yakouti" and „Votiakian" dress and showing mainly women, also Schamans. The descriptive texts, printed in elegant typeset with wide margins, are attributed to William Alexander.

There are copies known with different sets of sheets starting with „1796" watermarks, which is due to the fact that the plates and also already printed sheets where sold to John Murray and finally to Thomas M'Lean in 1818, who continued distributing the book with unchanged title page. Corners, margins and joints of binding in parts bumped and worn, on minor fault on read board, boards minimally scratched, end-papers slightly foxy, spine slighlty bleached, inside very slightly finger-stained and foxy, some pages in parts with „Abklatsch" from the mirrored engravings, otherwise well preserved copy of this beautiful print.

        Mémoires pour servir à l'histoire du Jacobinisme.

      À Hambourg, chez P. Fauche 1803 - 5 vol. in-8, bradel papier coquille, filets dorés au dos; pièces de titre et de tomaison de maroqui rouge et bleu (rel. de l'époque). Bon exemplaire. Nouvelle édition chez l'éditeur qui publia le texte pour la première fois en 1798. Un des livres majeurs de la doctrine contre-révolutionnaire. "L'ouvrage est divisé en trois parties. La première traite de la conspiration antichrétienne ; la deuxième de la conspiration contre les rois et la troisième de la conspiration des sophistes, de l'impiété et de l'anarchie, c'est à dire de la combinaison des deux premières conspirations". (Godechot, La Contre-Révolution, p. 52). Barruel y reprend les thèmes déjà développés dans ses ouvrages précédents mais leur donne plus de fermeté pour former une doctrine aboutie : la Révolution est le résultat d'une conspiration raisonnée depuis 1787 et organisée par les philosophes ? Voltaire, d'Alembert et Frédéric II ? et relayée par les francs-maçons. Il se prononce contre toute réforme et apparaît ainsi comme le maître de l'absolutisme intégral. À noter que son idée du complot maçonnique a fait école et demeure encore vivante aujourd'hui.

        An Essay on the Principle of Population; or, a View of its Past and Present Effects on Human Happiness; with an Inquiry into our Prospects Respecting the Future Removal or Mitigation of the Evils which it Occasions. A New Edition, very much Enlarged.

      London: J. Johnson, 1803 - Quarto (280 × 220 mm). Contemporary black quarter calf, marbled boards, smooth spine in compartments separated by double rules gilt, titles gilt on red ground to second. First quarto edition and second edition overall; first published in 1798. "In 1803 Malthus published a greatly expanded second edition of the Essay, incorporating details of the population checks that had been in operation in many different countries and periods. Although nominally a second edition, it was regarded by Malthus as a substantially new work. He did not claim originality for the idea that population tends to outrun the food supply. In the preface to the second edition he stated that in writing the first edition he had deduced the principle of population from the writings of David Hume, Robert Wallace, Adam Smith, and Richard Price, but that in the intervening period he had become aware that much more had been published on the subject. He nevertheless believed that even more remained to be done, especially in describing the means by which populations are checked and in drawing out the practical implications of the principle of population. In the second edition, Malthus made clear what was only implicit in the first, that prudential restraint should, if humanly possible, be 'moral restraint'—that is, delayed marriage accompanied by strictly moral pre-marital behaviour, although he admitted that moral restraint would not be easy and that there would be occasional failures. Whereas in the first edition he had said that all the checks to population would involve either misery or vice, in the second edition he attempted to lighten this 'melancholy hue' (Essay on the Principle of Population, 1st edn, 1798, iv) and 'to soften some of the harshest conclusions of the first essay' (2nd edn, 1803, vii) by arguing that moral restraint, if supported by an education emphasizing the immorality of bringing children into the world without the means of supporting them, would tend to increase rather than diminish individual happiness" (ODNB).

        Recueil en manuscrit [sur l'histoire de Bonaparte et du Consulat].

      (vers 1803). ____ Matériaux pour servir à l'histoire du Consulat. Le rédacteur a rassemblé quantité de documents : des proclamations et des rapports officiels, des discours et des récits extraits de journaux comme le "Journal du soir, de politique et de littérature des frères Chaignieau", le "Portillon de Calais" ou "d'après différents journaux" ... Ses documents suivent pour l'essentiel l'histoire de Bonaparte de 1796 à 1802 : campagnes d'Italie, traité de paix de Campo-Formio, guerre avec l'Angleterre, campagne d'Egypte, seconde campagne de Bonaparte en Italie. On trouve très détaillés, en fin de volume les récits des conspirations et attentats contre Bonaparte. Il a été relié à la fin un imprimé de 57 pages : "Plaidoyer ... pour Joseph Arena, natif de Corse ... accusé d'avoir pris part à un complot tendant au meurtre du premier Consul, et condamné à la peine de mort..." Une note de bas de page, recouverte d'une bande de papier dit : "Ce plaidoyer m'a été donné par le C[itoy]en Dief-" Ces pièces ont été rassemblées à l'époque, probablement afin rédiger une histoire de Bonaparte, premier Consul. Les nombreuses ratures et renvois nous montrent qu'il s'agit d'un manuscrit original. Reliure un peu défraîchie mais solide. *-------*. In-8. Collation : 600 pp. environ (paginations multiples) Basane marbrée, dos orné, tranches rouges. (Reliure de l'époque.).

Caritat, bookseller and librarian, New York 1803 - First American "from the London quarto edition," 8vo, pp. [4], viii & unpaginated text in double column; full contemporary tree calf, red morocco label; near fine. According to Shaw & Shoemaker, Caritat had printed an edition with the same title in New York in 1802, but the stated pagination is only 17pp., with one holding only (College of Physicians, Philadelphia), so likely a prospectus. Shaw & Shoemaker 4591; Courtney & Smith, p. 70: "Mason first attacked Johnson in his edition of Poems by Thomas Hoccleve, 1796?where he says: "One should really suspect, that the lexicographer had not collected the authorities for himself, nor even revised them when collected for him. Such a supposition might clear him of downright stupidity, but to the impeachment of his common honesty in dealing with the public?"

        Counter-signed letter, in a secretarial hand and signed by Étienne Michaux, . addressed Au Gà nà ral Bonaparte and Gà nà ral-Consul

      - 26 messidor an 11 [June 30, 1803]. One page (295 x 198 mm) on printed stationery produced for the Commissaire Ordonnateur de l'Armà e, Armà e d'Hanovre, mounted next to a near contemporary engraved portrait of Napoleon; a few old repaired marginal tears and very light browning. Étienne Michaux (1771-1850) had been a career soldier from the year of the French Revolution onwards and by 1804 he had risen to Ordonnateur en Chef des troupes françaises au Hanovre under Édouard Mortier, duc de Trà vise et marà chal d'Empire (1804). In this letter, he asks the future Emperor to have a look at General Mortier's letter written earlier in the month, where Mortier expressed a favourable assessment of Micheaux, who points out that Colonel Rapp had also produced documents in favour of Micheaux' administration. This lobbying paid, as this document, approved and signed by Napoleon, and history itself show: in the year 1803 the supplicant was made member of the Là gion d'honneur (established 1802), and five years later, under the Emperor Napoleon I, Chevalier de l'Empire, i.e. member of the layer of new nobility created by Napoleon. 1803 was a critical year in Napoleon's establishement of his position in Europe. After Britain had declared war on France in forward defence in May, French troops invaded Hanover and a year later Napoleon coronated himself. In order to gain support for this 'revolutionary' act he needed devout followers and a miltary and administrative machinery that supported him unconditionally. Authenticated by Christies, Paris.

One of the most interesting works on the development of the colonization of North America in the eighteenth century, since it is a genuine practical guide for new settlers, with provisions to solve all the problems that could arise for someone who would like to emigrate to Louisiana with the intention of settling there. In addition, he provided both suggestions for improving the management and administration of the businesses and services as they were operating, as well as reflections on the importance that would have to be given to the colonization of Louisiana as a pilot test for the improvement of French colonial policy and its administration. It also includes such tasty chapters as the description of the functioning of slavery - offering an extensive dictionary of Congolese language to facilitate its use - or the medicinal use of existing plants in the new territories. This approach to colonial exploitation probably had its origin in the fact that Baudry des Lozières, colonist in Santo Domingo, lost all his property with the rebellion of the Dominican slaves when, with the Revolution, the Convention abolished slavery in France and its colonies in 1794. Which made him a fervent antirevolutionary, anti-philosophers -those who he deemed to be the ultimate responsible for his ruin,  strong spirits whose eloquence is only directed to corrupt the people - and proslavery. And, precisely for writing from that place, we can read the actual operation of colonization, without sweetening or novelization. Something that reflects very well its content: Tome premier: Contenant la vie militaire du général Grondel, doyen des armées de France, qui commanda longtemps à la Louisiane, et honoré de cent dix ans de service; un Detail sur les productions les plus avantageuses, les plus extraordinaires de cette belle Colonie, et sur ses quartiers les plus fertiles et les plus lucratifs; de nouvelles Réflexions sur les Colonies en général, et le Régime nécessaire aux personnes des Colonies pendant la première année de leur arrivée.

        The Hard Bargain

      London: Published by H. Macklin, 1803. Mezzotint. In good condition. A fine impression of this beautiful print by Ward after George Morland, the master of genre painting."The Hard Bargain" was one of the most successful of William Ward's mezzotints of a Morland painting. Morland's extraordinary ability to convey in posture and expression is perfectly transmitted in Ward's print, in which we see the seller of a heifer making conciliatory gestures toward the prospective buyer, who is already half turned to leave and practically snarls at the seller. The atmosphere is tense, and we have the unpleasant sense that the seller is going to accept the minimal offer.George Morland (1763-1804) was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings. At an early age Morland displayed his artistic genius, he learned to paint at three and exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy at the mere age of ten. He was a prodigious painter, producing more than 4000 paintings during the entirety of his career, and sometimes painting two or three works in a day. His beautiful idealistic scenes were a favorite source of inspiration for contemporary engravers, and as many as 250 separate engravings were done of his paintings during his lifetime. His brother-in-law, William Ward, engraved a great number of his paintings reproducing in print his endearing paintings of English country life. Ward's engravings after Morland are some of the most beautiful prints of the period; they combine fine technical skill and inspired artistic imagination to create enduring images that speak of the taste and beauty of the age.Le Blanc IV, p.177, no.118.

        Portrait of Joseph Ritson.

      Etching. London: H. Humphrey, 22 March 1803. Etching, engraving and aquatint on thin grey surfaced or prepared paper, platemark 272 x 207 mm, sheet size 306 x 221 mm, tipped to white backing sheet and mounted. An extraordinary satirical portrait of the eccentric author and vegetarian Joseph Ritson. He stands at his desk writing in a large book headed "Common Place". His finger and toe nails are talons; he dips his pen into an ink-stand inscribed "Gall", and has written "Moses an Imposter the prophets old Cloaths Men of Judaea Warburton a fool Dr Percy a Liar Warton an infamous Liar a pipeer better than a parson". From his pocket projects a pamphlet "The Atheist's pocket Companion". He stands on a slab of damaged papers headed "Dr Percy's Antient Balla[ds]"; in front of him is large open book with a portrait of Thomas Warton stabbed through with a knife and fork. The room is filled with large folio volumes and vegetable products, with a cow munching at a basket of leaves beside a paper "Bill of Fare / Nettle Soup / Sour Crout / Horse Beans / Onions Leeks"; an emaciated and chained cat crouches on the top shelf beside a book "Abstinence from animal food a moral duty"; and a frog squats on the desk. Below the image are Latin, Greek and English quotes. "Ritson the antiquary (1752 - 23 September 1803) was sinking from morose or savage eccentricity to insanity. Since reading Mandeville's Fables of the Bees in 1772 he had lived on milk and vegetable. The scene must represent his chambers in Gray's Inn where (Sept. 1803) he burnt many manuscripts. He disregarded the decencies of literary controversy, and attacked (1782) Warton's History of English Poetry. His own Select Collection of English Songs (1783) was marred by attacks on the Reliques of Percy whom he again assailed in 1792. In 1793 he adopted the French republican calendar and declared himself an atheist. Sayers's figure was copied for the only [other] two portraits of Ritson, three-quarter length and half length" - M. Dorothy George, Catalogue of Political and Personal Satires in the British Museum.

        Catalogue des Livres de la Bibliothèque de M. C. de La Serna Santander, Rédigé et mis en ordre par lui-même; avec des notes bibliographiques et littéraires; nouvellement corrigé et augmenté

      - Two engraved plates (one is folding & with eight images) & five folding woodcut plates of watermarks. Five vols. bound in four. 8vo, cont. paste-paper boards (occasional minor browning), flat spines gilt, red leather lettering pieces on spines. Brussels: [Privately Printed], 1803. The very rare privately printed catalogue, in its most complex state, of the vast and famous library of Carlos Antonio La Serna (1752-1813), bibliographer, historian of early printing, and "conservateur" at the Brussels Library. The main part of the library, the finest of the time in the Low Countries, was actually amassed by his uncle, Don Simon de Santander San Juan, former secretary of the Spanish King and an ardent book collector resident in Brussels. The collection passed to his nephew Carlos Antonio upon his death in 1791. Carlos Antonio, who had come from Spain about 1772, aided his uncle in forming the collection. Upon inheriting the collection, Carlos Antonio was forced due to family reasons to try to sell the library; a catalogue in 1792 was prepared. According to Michaud, La Serna sold the library to a Brussels collector, who proposed to make it available to the public, but the purchaser became insolvent after a few years and La Serna recovered possession of the collection. La Serna continued to acquire important books and MSS. After the Peace of Amiens, La Serna reissued the catalogue under his own name with additions in 1803, hoping to attract a wealthy purchaser amongst the new generation of important collectors at home and abroad. This reissue contained a number additional leaves or cancels (see below). However the library remained unsold until 1809, when Renouard acquired it for 60,000 francs. The great French bookseller offered it at auction in Paris in the same year in 67 sessions. Vol. I contains three additional leaves, one each inserted in quires B, F, and G. Unlike every other copy I know of, leaf E8 is present. Vol. II contains six additional leaves, one each inserted in quires A, B, F, P, S, and T. Vol. III contains an additional quire C of eight leaves. Vol. IV contains an extra leaf each in quires F and G and quire K is extended to comprise thirteen leaves. The fifth volume (here bound with Vol. IV) - the Supplément and which is very often missing - contains four pieces: "Observations sur les filigranes"; "Mémoire sur le premier Usage des signatures et des Chiffres, dans l'Art Typographique"; "Praefatio Historico-critica, in Veram et Genuinam Collectionem Veterum Canonum Ecclesiae Hispanae"; "A Divo Isidoro." They were all clearly issued separately and have been here gathered together with a general title-page. This volume contains a long folding sheet with eight engravings. Fine and handsome set. This set is priced throughout in a contemporary hand (this is most unusual). In excess of 6500 lots are listed. With thanks to Roland Folter for supplying details on the additional leaves. Early bookplate of Jacob Philippe Le Dru, doctor of medicine, in each volume and with his cipher on each title. ?

        Rhapsodieen über die Anwendung der psychischen Curmethode auf Geisteszerrüttungen.

      Halle, in der Curtschen Buchhandlung, 1803, 8, 504 pp., Pappband d.Zt. feines Exemplar aus dem Vorbesitz "Dr. Krukenberg, Rinteln". ERSTE AUSGABE dieser klassischen Schrift. Dieses Exemplar wurde bereichert von dem Ur-Ur Enkels Johann Christian Reils, Dr. Ernst Krukenberg (1889-1972) mit einer Liste von Schlagworten von einigen wenigen im Buch am Rand mit zartem Bleistift markierten Textstellen, er kommentiert die Liste: "Wissenschaftlich, wie auch rein familär - wie der Vorfahre dachte? - sind die angeführten Stellen mir interessant. Für eilige Leser hier notiert, für das Buch vielleicht nicht schön, für eilige Leser aber doch wohl nützlich! Als Ur-ur-Enkel von Reil. Dr. Krukenberg, Rinteln."Ein Meilenstein der Psychiatriegeschichte und ein aufrüttelnder Appell an die Humanität. Extrem selten, "...das berühmteste und anregendste Werk der älteren deutschen Psychiatrie." (Kraepelin). "...eine der sympathischsten Persönlichkeiten in der Geschichte der Medizin." (Diepgen). - Reil bemühte sich um die Verbesserung der Zustände in den Irrenanstalten und um die Etablierung der Psychiatrie als selbständige akademische Disziplin. Damit hat er zu einem großen Aufschwung in der Behandlung Geisteskranker beigetragen. Zu den von ihm empfohlenen Methoden gehören bereits psychotherapeutische Techniken, wie das Psychodrama, die Beschäftigungs- und die Schocktherapie.Johann Christian Reil (1759-1813) war seit 1787 Professor der Medizin in Halle. 1810 übernahm er den Lehrstuhl für klinische Medizin an der Berliner Universität. Er war einer der Hauptvertreter des "Vitalismus." Bahnbrechend waren seine hirnanatomischen Arbeiten, besonders über das Kleinhirn und die Nerven. Reil war vertrauter Freund von Henriette und Marcus Hertz und Arzt von J. W. von Goethe.In Germany, perhaps the most conspicuous early work in linking physiology with psychiatry is associated with the name of J. C. Reil whose anatomical studies of the brain are remembered eponymously in the "Island of Reil". With the present book, one of the famous texts in the history of the treatment of mental diseases, Reil radically reformed psychiatry. The methods he advocated (psychotherapy, psychodrama, occupational therapy, shock treatment) were only taken up again in our own time. He effected the elevation of psychiatry to the position of an independent branch of study at the universities.Garrison calls Reil "the founder of modern psychiatry" and in the words of Zilboorg & Henry "there is no doubt that we should consider Reil as one of the founders of psychiatry as a specialty." " The present treatise is one of the earliest systematic works on psychotherapy. In it Reil sets forth principles and different techniques of therapy. Although he did not forma-late a comprehensive theory of personality, he recognized the necessity of understanding the healthy personality before the pathological personality could be understood. He believed that mental illness is a psychological phenomenon which requires psychological methods of treatment and was convinced of the dose relationship between mind and body.

Bring 342, variant 2. Åhlen s. 179. Första upplagan. Enligt Bring finns två exemplar kända, på KB resp. LUB, med 336 sidor (variant 1). En svensk översättning utkom 1811. Både det tyska originalet och den svenska översättningen blev förbjudna i Sverige. Schweizaren J. G. Kerner (1770-1812) var sekreterare hos den franske gesandten Reinhard i Köpenhamn, då han under sommaren och hösten 1802 gjorde flera resor till Skåne och Blekinge. I boken skildras besök i Helsingborg, Ramlösa, Höganäs, Lund, Malmö, Karlskrona, Karlshamn, Kristianstad, Landskrona och ett flertal av de skånska godsen. Svensk översättare är troligen Munck af Rosenschöld. I boken återfinns även en detaljerad skildring av svenska förhållanden och hånfulla anmärkningar mot Gustav IV Adolf för bigotteri och högfärd samt kommentarer rörande tvivlen på kungens äkta börd, vilket föranledde förbud och beslagtagande. Misstankarna om vem som försett Kerner med material riktades snart mot Munck af Rosenschöld, som också åtalades, men blev friad. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An essay on the principle of population; or, a view of its past and present effects on human happiness; with an inquiry into our prospects respecting the future removal or mitigation of theevils which it occasions. A new edition, very much enlarged.

      London T. Bensley for J. Johnson 1803 - Second edition. 4to., viii, [4], 610 pp., contemporary calf gilt, covers with gilt borders, rebacked, red morocco label, an excellent copy. This second edition is substantially a new book in which Malthus defended his views against a host of critics. "The central idea of the essay -- and the hub of Malthusian theory -- was a simple one. The population of a community, Malthus, suggested, increases geometrically, while food supplies increased only arithmetically. If the natural increase in population occurs, the food supply becomes insufficient and the size of the population is checked by 'misery' -- that is, the poorest sections of the community suffer disease and famine. The Essay was highly influential in the progress of thought in early nineteenth-century Europe" (PMM). In this enlarged edition, Malthus made clear what was only implicit in the first, that prudential restraint should, if humanly possible, be 'moral restraint'—that is, delayed marriage accompanied by strictly moral pre-marital behaviour, although he admitted that moral restraint would not be easy and that there would be occasional failures. Whereas in the first edition he had said that all the checks to population would involve either misery or vice, in the second edition he attempted to lighten this 'melancholy hue' (Essay on the Principle of Population, 1st edn, 1798, iv) and 'to soften some of the harshest conclusions of the first essay' (2nd edn, 1803, vii) by arguing that moral restraint, if supported by an education emphasizing the immorality of bringing children into the world without the means of supporting them, would tend to increase rather than diminish individual happiness. "His work was an important influence on both Darwin and Wallace in their formulation of the concept of natural selection. It also had a profound influence on the decrease in size of families down to the present time" (Garrison-Morton) . Cf. PMM 251; Garrison-Morton 1693. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Observations on the theory and practice of landscape gardening. Including some remarks on Grecian and Gothic architecture.

      London T. Bensley for J. Taylor 1803 - First edition. 4to, stipple-engraved portrait frontispiece, 25 aquatint plates and 2 line-engraved plates, of which 12 are hand-coloured or tinted and 12 plates have overlays, one with two small tears, 10 aquatint head and tail pieces and numerous woodcut illustrations in text, 2 of the vignettes with overlays, folding plate with short repairs. Bound in recent half calf with contemporary marbled boards, marbled endpapers, spine gilt decorated, red morocco label and gilt lettered; overall an attractive copy An important work which provides "a guide to [Repton's] approach to landscape design, with explanations of his aims and his methods of achieving them in specific instances". The book is a compilation of texts from a number of the Red Books he had composed since his last publication, many of them now lost - those for Balstrode, Corsham, Gayhurst, Shardeloes, and West Wycombe. Several are now in American collections - those for Armley, Brandesbury, Culford, Ferney, the Royal Fort, Bristol, and Stonelands. Repton's Red Books, almost always bound in red morocco, included Repton's suggestions for ways to make clients' estates even more beautiful; with a hill removed here, a lake created there, a clump of trees artfully placed . The books were not printed but were manuscripts with the texts, maps, and drawings done by experts at the height of their professions. Each book included a before and after - a watercolour view of the chosen scene after proposed changes had been made, overlaid by a hinged cutout turning the picture back to the original view. The Red Books formed handsome albums of views for display in the patron's library, to serve as plans or to record work in progress. But Repton's work was very expensive: some clients commissioned their surveys for social prestige, but never attempted to put his recommendations into practice. Repton's Observations is, in effect, a handbook of tricks of the trade, or rather profession, for, unlike Capability Brown, who had usually contracted himself for work, Repton acted only as a consultant and overseer." - Millard. "The overlays in Repton's books on landscape gardening, by means of which he showed selected prospects before and after he had turned his hand to them, have caused collectors to treasure his engravings as curiosities, but they are remarkable as well for the evidence of his draughtsmanship".(Ray) Millard, British Books, 65 (second edition); Abbey Scenery 390; Berlin Kat. 3431; Ray 38.

Second edition in English of Johann Gottfried Herder's first major essay on the philosophy of history. Herder's 'Ideen zur Philosophie der Geschichte der Menschheit' (1784-90) used the latest research on biology, anthropology and physiology, "eliciting a notably hostile reaction from Kant. Mankind, Herder argued, derives from an evolutionary process whereby organic matter arises from inorganic, and live species evolve towards higher species, leading eventually to the emergence of man who is thus the product of nature rather than a divine Creator. Furthermore, man is here deemed a unitary entity not divided into ranks or races, and without black men being in any way subordinate. Furthermore, man is deemed the creator (not the receiver) of his own culture, morality and society" (Israel, 'Democratic Enlightenment', page 736). Second Edition. Hardback. Good+. 8vo.

        The insurrection of the twenty-third July, 1803

      Dublin: printed by Grassberry and Campbell 10 Back-Lane 1803 - 8vo., xiii + (1) + 110pp., a few leaves a little creased, recent marbled boards lettered on spine. A very good copy from the early 20th century library of George Gilbertson> (1915) with his signature. First edition: uncommon. Goldsmiths 18757. Not in Bradshaw. Henry Brereton Code (d. 1830) wrote this unsympathetic account of the United Irishman Robert Emmet's abortive rebellion barely one month after Emmet's trial, conviction and execution on 19/20 September. Code's account chronicles the events leading up the failed uprising and attempts to give an ideological justification for the British suppression of the separatist rebels. It has been described as a travesty by subsequent Irish writers and historians for its bias against Irish nationalist republicanism. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
