        Autograph letter signed in full to an unidentified male correspondent, possibly the noted German organist and writer Carl Ferdinand Becker

      1 page. 12mo. Undated. In black ink. In French (with translation). Berlioz thanks Mr. and Mrs. [Carl Ferdinand?] Becker for their warm hospitality. He is "deeply touched by it" and "will never forget it." Some browning to recto; two small pieces of tape to verso. Together with: A bust-length postcard photograph of the composer in later years. . Berlioz was the leading French composer, conductor, and critic of his age. "In many senses the Romantic movement found its fullest embodiment in him, yet he had deep Classical roots and stood apart from many manifestations of that movement. His life presents the archetypal tragic struggle of new ideas for acceptance... and though there were many who perceived greatness in his music from the beginning, his genius only came to full recognition in the 20th century." Hugh Macdonald in Grove Music Online. This letter may be to Carl Ferdinand Becker (1804-1877), a noted German organist, musicologist, music collector, and bibliographer. He is especially remembered for his contributions to journals such as the Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung and the Neue Zeitschrift für Musik, and various other scholarly writings. While editor of the AmZ, he published a facsimile of Berlioz's "Villanelle" on November 16, 1842.

      [London. 1804].. Bifolium (consisting of one broadside form and one broadside advertisement), 19 1/2 x 12 inches. Copper-engraved scene, 5 3/4 x 7 inches, at head of form. Woodcut emblem, 3 x 4 1/2 inches, at head of advertisement. Two vertical and three horizontal folds. Contemporary manuscript inscription, "June 1804," in left margin beside engraving in first leaf; contemporary manuscript inscriptions, dated Nov. 8, 1804, on blank verso of first leaf referring to policy rates in Charleston. Half- inch tear at gutter of first leaf, repaired in tape on verso. Portion of upper corner at foredge and portion of margin at gutter lacking from second leaf, supplied in later paper. Second leaf somewhat faded. Else near fine. Bifolium of two broadsides for the Phoenix fire insurance company of London at the time of the opening of its first agency in New York. The Phoenix Assurance Company, still operating today as Phoenix Life, Ltd., was founded in 1782 by a consortium of sugar refiners in London seeking more reasonable rates for the insurance of their risky holdings against fire. By the mid-1780s, Phoenix had established itself as a successful fire insurer across the whole of Great Britain for a wide array of businesses and homes. In 1785 the Phoenix Company sold its first North American policy at Charleston, and the first policy in New York was accepted two years later. It was not until 1804, however, that Phoenix began establishing actual agencies in the New World, breaking ground in New York with the appointment of Theophylact and Andrew Bache as agents there. The first leaf is a printed policy form for the Phoenix Company in New York, never filled in. The second leaf is an advertising broadside for the company, containing a table of rates for New York subscribers and a detailed list of conditions for new policies. The handsome copper engraving at the top of the form leaf depicts a helmeted goddess (presumably Athena) on a pedestal bearing a shield stamped with the word, "PROTECTION," and the image of a phoenix rising from ashes. Behind the figure is a nighttime scene of the burning remains of a building and a family of victims spilling on to the street. A team of firefighters are extinguishing the flames with a pump-operated hose, and behind them is a scaffolded building under repair. The engraved caption reads: "PHOENIX FIRE OFFICE, LOMBARDO STREET and CHARING CROSS." A similar illustration in woodcut is included at the head of the "Proposals" broadside. Here, the goddess is the only figure depicted. On her left are both the burning building and the new construction; on her right is a ship at sea engulfed in flames. The hooks and axes of the firefighter adorn the sides of the cut. The Goldsmiths'-Kress Library of Economic Literature at Harvard lists a copy of the Boston variant of the advertising broadside. The only located institutional holding of this New York issue, however, is at the Connecticut Historical Society. No records of the printed form in any issue have been located.

        The History of Scotland, from the Union of the Crowns on the Accession of James VI to the throne of England, to the Union of the Kingdoms in the Reign of Queen Anne

      London and Edinburgh: Mawman, 1804. Four volumes, octavo; fine in contemporary speckled calf, spines with simple double gilt rules, blue morocco lettering pieces and circular red morocco volume number labels; folding facsimile frontispiece showing Queen Mary's handwriting and a view of the College of Edinburgh. Handsome set of the second edition of this important Scottish history. A major achievement by the Scottish historian Laing (1762-1818), "a work showing considerable research"(Britannica). Variously appended to the first and second editions of the "History" are dissertations on the Gowrie conspiracy, on the authenticity of Ossian's poems, and on the authorship of the Casket Letters (which Laing says were written by Mary, Queen of Scots, who he claims was partly responsible for the murder of Lord Darnley). The set we are here offering is curious bibliographically. All four volumes have the 1804 title page, but the third and fourth volumes, which are fractionally taller, are apparently from the first printing of 1800, as they contain additional title-pages with the imprint of A.Strahan for Cadell and Davis, along with the earlier date. But this is in no sense a made-up set, as the bindings for all four volumes were clearly executed at the time of publication and by the same binder.

        Land grant on vellum signed by Governor King, and with a small site-sketch by G.W. Evans

      Sydney: Government House, 1804. Vellum sheet measuring 330 x 230 mm., with manuscript notations to both faces (including a site-sketch with measurements); folded and a little aged yet very good condition. Sydney town block leased by Governor King. Early Sydney lease signed by Governor Philip Gidley King for an allotment in the central Sydney Town, with a sketch of the site executed and signed by colonial surveyor George William Evans.Manuscript documents signed by Governor King are scarce and desirable on the market. King was a pivotal figure in the early history of Australian settlement. His skill as a naval officer attracted the respect of Captain Arthur Phillip, who selected him as second lieutenant of the First Fleet convict transport Sirius. Prior to assuming the position of Governor in 1800, King served in Sydney and Norfolk Island and was widely respected for his skilled leadership through the difficult early years of settlement.This lease is noteworthy for the inclusion of the site sketch by George Evans, a notable early colonial artist and inland explorer. A talented and versatile man, Evans was appointed surveyor to the colony in 1803; he later undertook extensive exploration of the inland and revealed the rich grazing lands around the Lachlan River. Evans was also a skilled artist and companion of the natural history illustrator John Lewin. Few examples of Evan's artistic output have survived.Governor King awarded the seven year lease to Thomas Randall in May 1804 for a ground rent of 10 shillings per year. The subsequent early history of the site is recorded in two manuscript notes detailing further sale contracts to the reverse of this lease. It was first sold on to Edward Wells, who then on-sold the lease to Sydney merchant Simeon Lord, the prominent colonial entrepreneur who rose from humble beginnings (Lord was transported to New South Wales in 1791). He began his trading career selling rum outside the monopoly controlled by the officers of the New South Wales Corps, and later invested in land, shipping and manufacturing throughout the colony.Clearly Simeon Lord was keen to acquire this allotment for he paid the considerable sum of £325 for the remainder of the lease in 1807. The location of the lease, in the immediate vicinity of the Dry Store on Spring Row (later Castlereagh Street) was ideal for a merchant trader like Lord. Earlier he had constructed his private residence in close proximity to the Dry Store, allowing officers of merchant vessels docked in the harbour to stay in his house while remaining close to valuable cargo and merchandise held in the Dry Store.The grant is fully signed 'Philip Gidley King' and the sketch is likewise signed 'G.W. Evans, acting surveyor'. Examples of Gidley King's signature are uncommon on the market, and this grant is not listed in the standard reference Land Grants 1788-1809 edited by R.J. Ryan.

        The Punishments of China. [With:] 23 original watercolor drawings after the plates

      William Miller, London 1804 - Reprint of 1804 second edition, plates watermarked 1819. 22 hand-colored aquatints after Pu-Qua with accompanying text leaves in English and French. Folio. With 23 Original Watercolors. With a fine set of 23 original watercolors by Chinese artists for export to Europe, illustrating the various "Punishments of China." The accompanying watercolors are captioned in a later hand, indicating that they were used for the plates in Punishments. Though they closely resemble the illustrations in Punishments, it is unlikely that these were the very models used for publication. These watercolors, drawn on European paper, were certainly produced in a Chinese shop (possibly Pu-Qua's) for export to Europe. They show signs of having been removed from an album, which was how these drawings were commonly sold. Scenes of Chinese punishment and costumes were popular themes at the time. Abbey Travel, 532; Colas 2011; Lipperheide 1522 (1808 ed) Full contemporary green morocoo, gilt, a.e.g., rubbed, head of spine damaged. Ex-library with shelfmarks, bookplate, and perforated stamps.

        The Topography of Troy and its Vicinity:

      London: T. N. Longman and O. Rees,, 1804. Illustrated and Explained by Drawings and Description. Folio (418 × 268 mm). Contemporary full diced russia, neatly rebacked to style, red morocco label - compartments formed by simple double rules, and enclosing fleuron tools, gilt French fillet panel to the boards enclosing, bead and chain panel, similar edge-roll, and to the turn-ins, edges sprinkled blue, marbled endpapers. 28 hand-coloured plates by Thomas Medland after Gell's drawings, 7 of them etchings, and 21 aquatints, three of these folding; coloured etched vignette to the title page, and 11 other similar headpieces, together with one uncoloured aquatint headpiece; 2 maps by Medland after Gell. Prospectus for Engravings with a Descriptive Account, in English and French, of Egyptian Monuments, in the British Museum (1804), by the same publishers, and also with engravings by Medland, tipped-in before the title page. Some light wear at the extremities, light toning, some off-setting to and from the plates as usual, one folding plate with a short closed tear, no loss, but overall a very good copy. This copy with the armorial bookplate of William Baker (1743-1824), the son of of Sir William Baker, one of the wealthiest merchants of the 18th century, occupying prominent positions in both the Hudson Bay and East India companies. His influence was such that he was able to play a prominent part in financing the Seven Years War. His first marriage was to Julia Penn, granddaughter of Willian Penn. First and only edition."Certainly the most beautiful book on Troy ever published" (Lascarides). Gell travelled extensively in the eastern Mediterranean in the early years of the century, visiting the Troad with Dodwell in 1801, and fixing, to his own satisfaction, the site of Troy at Bunarbashi (Pinarbasi) in line with the theories of Jean-Baptiste le Chevalier. Gell's sketches of the expedition have been criticised for showing "no great artistic power", however "their exactness and minuteness", produced with the assistance of the camera lucida, might fairly be seen as offering classical clarity and light, as an alternative to the romantic elaboration and gloom that sometimes obscures topographic accuracy in other similar works of the period. He was assisted in the creation of this attractively clear visual record by the meticulous transfer of his sketches by Thomas Medland. Most likely trained at the British Institution, he is identified in the drawing by Alfred Edward Chalon of Students at the British Institution (BM1879,0614.758). Medland (c.1765?-1833) "practised both in the line manner and in aquatint and excelled in landscape work" (ODNB). When Haileybury College was founded for the training of cadets for the East India Company in 1806 Medland was appointed drawing and oriental writing-master there.

        Der Geist der allerneuesten Philosophie der H.H. Schelling, Hegel und Kompagnie. Eine Uebersetzung aus der Schulsprache in die Sprache der Welt. Mit einigen leitenden Winken zur Prüfung begleitet. Zum Gebrauche für das gebildetere Publikum überhaupt. Erste Hälfte Zweyte Hälfte. München: Joseph Lentner, 1804, 1805.

      - Early reprint of Volume 1, first edition of Volume 2. 'The sharp, polemic tone of Schelling's Philosophy and Religion was not directed at his friend Eschenmayer but at the "horde of rowdy opponents" led by two influential high-school teachers from Munich, Kajetan Weiller and Jakob Salat, who, according to Tilliette, "dedicated their lives to pillorying Schelling"' (Klaus Ottmann, Introduction to Schelling's Philosophy and Religion, 2010, p.14). 'Hegel was familiar with Salat's work and utterly contemptuous of it. A brief notice in the March 1802 issue of the Critical Journal of Philosophy expressed disgust at the "sanctimonious moral drivel and asthenic salads [moralische Salbadereien und asthenische Salute]" that Salat had served up in his attempt to present the "Berlin Aufklärei in its most trivial form as a moral and human enlightenment". Hegel’s animus against Salat may in part be attributed to Salat's role as a defender of Friedrich Heinrich Jacobi and, hence, an opponent of the philosophical system Hegel and Schelling were attempting to articulate. Jacobi had been treated rather roughly in Hegel's 1802 Glauben und Wissen and Salat, in collaboration with Kajetan von Weiller, responded with Der Geist der allerneuesten Philosophie der Herren Schelling, Hegel und Kompagnie (1803-1805). Hegel wrote a response which, however, was never published and was subsequently lost' (James Schmidt, 'Cabbage Heads and Gulps of Water', Political Theory, February 1998, pp. 20-21). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 2 volumes, 8vo, xxi, [iii], 272; xx, 160 pp., contemporary stiff paper covers, bright and fresh, neat early ownership inscription inside front covers, shelfmark on title-pages, otherwise very clean, a fine set.

        CINDERELLA; or the Little Glass Slipper, A Tale for the Nursery. From the French of C. Perrault. Sixth edition. .With Three Copperplates. Price Six-pence.

      36 pages. Illustrated with three hand-coloured engraved plates after Corbould or Craig, advertsied as being representations of three of the principle scenes in the performance at the Drury Lane Theatre. Original pink stiff wrappers with a printed label to the upper panel. 12.6 x8 cm. Name on endpaper; covers a little soiled and worn; else very good. Rare.The 'sixth' edition, known previously only by a copy held by the Lily Library at Indiana, was the earliest issue located by Mrs Moon; the next listed, likewise dated 1804, being the fourteenth edition. However, Tabart's numbering of editions must, in our experience, be treated with some scepticism; and Mrs Moon, with typical restraint, hints at as much in the Introduction to her bibliography, when she writes, 'if his title-pages speak truth...' it is self-evident that something is awry, for she lists a copy dated 1804 that claims to be the sixteenth edition, yet also lists an edition, dated 1806, that purports to be an eleventh edition. It may well be, that the so-called 'sixth edition' is in fact the first Tabart edition. Subsequent to the publication of her bibliography of Tabart, we placed a 'seventh edition' dated 1804 with the Cotsen Library.
