        History of British Birds

      Newcastle: Solomon Hodgson for R. Beilby & T. Bewick [etc.], 1797-1804. Two volumes, thin royal (vol. 1) and demy (vol. 2) 8vo (225 x 135 mm). Wood-engraved title vignette, illustrations, head- and tail-pieces by Bewick. Modern polished calf gilt by R. Wallace. Lacking half-title in volume 1, lightly spotted, one leaf with marginal repair. Provenance: purchased from Goodspeed's Book Shop, 1983. FIRST EDITION, volume 1 with plate at p.75 in FIRST STATE, vignette at p.285 in "uninked" state, vignette on p.22 Roscoe's Variant A, volume 2 conforms to Roscoe's Variant F. The best-known work of the famed wood-engraver Thomas Bewick. Bewick's imaginative designs and technique are said to have revived the medium of wood-engraving at this time. The work was beloved by the Brönte sisters, and Charlotte Brönte used it to provide escape for Jane Eyre when she was being bullied by her cousins and aunt at Gateshead. "Although the text and images transport Jane to 'strangely impressive' worlds, their uncanny paranormal elements frighten her and foreshadow future encounters with the supernatural. Jane is particularly drawn to the allegorical vignettes depicted in Bewick's tail-pieces" (British Library). Ayer/Zimmer I, 57; Nissen IVB 95; Roscoe 14, 17. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow.

[ad. 3]: Buisman 2346; Buijnsters pag. 41;[ad. 4]: Niet in Buisman; niet bij Buijnsters; niet in NCC. [ad. 1] Pastoor Scheffer, die vele jaren met twee huishoudsters woonde in de Elzas, Barbara en Catharina Ritter,de eerste in de 40 en de andere in haar dertiger jaren, verhuisde naar Keulen en bleek financieel niet meer in staat voor de twee vrouwen te blijven zorgen. Op 6 september 1803 vermoordde hij ze door hen bij Deutz de hals af te snijden. In de gevangenis maakte hij zijn levensverhaal dat in dit boek is gepubliceerd. In 1805 verscheen nog een tweede druk (Buisman 1444).$[ad. 2] De predikant Gabriel Rijk (1763-1812) bezocht samen met zijn collega Meiboom en de krankenbezoeker Springstok enige malen de ter dood veroordeelde Leenderd van Willigen. Deze was veroordeeld wegens valsemunterij: hij had Zeeuwse rijksdaalders gemaakt van tin, 'niet uit armoede maar uit hebzucht'. Hij was 30 jaar oud, gehuwd en had een 'aanleg tot gierigheid en geilheid'. Het vonnis werd uitgesproken door de procureur Van Hall. Rijk is onder de indruk van het waardige gedrag van Van Willigen in de gevangenis en op het schavot. Het boekje is zeldzaam, Buijnsters kon in 1980 geen exemplaar opsporen. De NCC en STCN geven nu twee exemplaren (UBA).$[ad. 3] Het boek over William Dodd is eveneens zeldzaam. Dodd was geboren in 1729, studeerde te Cambridge en had een voortreffelijke loopbaan: hij schreef letterkundige werken, was vanaf 1752 predikant, enkele jaren goeverneur van rijke jongens, vrijmetselaar, etc. Hij werkte kort voor zijn dood aan een geillustreerde uitgave van Shakespeare's werk. Hij gaf echter veel meer geld uit dan hij verdiende en trachtte door valsheid in geschrifte de tekorten aan te zuiveren. Dat werd ontdekt en hij werd ter dood gebracht. De predikant Villette begeleidde zijn laatste dagen. Zelf hield Dodd een dagboek bij 'Overdenkingen in de gevangenis', afgedrukt op 160 pagina's.$ [ad. 4]: Het verhaal over dr. C.F. Bahrdt (1741-1792) wordt bibliografisch nergens vermeld en staat niet in de NCC. Het is meer een anti-vrijmetselaars geschrift dan een criminele biografie: Bahrdt was een vooraanstaand vrijmetselaar en de drijvende kracht achter een organisatie die de Duitsche Unie werd genoemd, een groep intellectuelen die zich verzette tegen het z.g. Religions Edikt. Men vermoedde ook dat Bahrdt de auteur was van een 'lust-spiel' tegen dit Edikt en van een 'Kommentar' hierover. Op 7 april 1789 werd hij gevangen genomen en op 21 oktober 1789 veroordeeld tot twee jaar vestingarrest te Maagdenburg. In het boek doet hij verslag van zijn leven en van zijn gevangenistijd."

        Persien nach seinem neuesten Zustande in das Oestliche und Westliche Reich eingeteilt.

      Weimar, Geographisches Institut, 1804. - Hand-coloured engraved map (740 x 555 mm). A fascinating 1804 map of Persia by Christian Gottlieb Reichard. It covers from the Black Sea south as far as the Gulf and east as far as Punjab in India, including the modern day nations of Iran, Iraq, Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan and Pakistan. The map identifies numerous towns, villages, deserts, mountain ranges, river systems and a host of other topographical features. The map is color coded according to territories and boundaries. The map curiously divides the country, as the title suggests, into the Eastern and Western Empire, suggesting suspicious political evidence. Furthermore, the islands in the Gulf are also erroneously shown as independent territories, suggesting political aspirations of the time. The map represents Persia under the Qajar Dynasty. In 1794, Aga Muhammad Khan of the Qajar Dynasty overthrew Loft Ali Khan, the last Shah of the Zand Dynasty, and relocated the capital to the new city of Tehran. The subsequent era, the Qajar Dynasty, witnessed numerous military conflicts with the rising powers of Imperial Russia and the loss of much of Persia's territory. Al-Qasimi 218.

      Four hand-colored folding engraved maps & one fine engraving. 11 pp. 4to, cont. crushed green morocco, sides bordered in gilt, spine gilt. [Strasbourg: F.G. Levrault, 1804]. First edition of this rare and handsomely illustrated work. In order to celebrate Napoleon's coronation in 1804, the city of Strasbourg initiated a series of a civil engineering and public works projects. The explanatory text details the planned bridge over the Rhine connecting Strasbourg with Kehl, an orangerie dedicated to Empress Josephine, a canal to protect against flooding and to circumvent a turbulent part of the Rhine, a performance hall, and the extension of a central boulevard. The measurements and purpose of each structure are also noted. The maps are all finely engraved and hand-colored with grey borders. The first map depicts the portion of the river adjacent to Strasbourg and a cross-section of the new bridge to be constructed (with high- and low-water marks shown). The second presents the ornate landscaping which will surround the orangerie, as well as a smaller floorplan. The third shows the location of the new canal. The projected performance hall and prolonged boulevard are shown on the fourth and final map. The final engraving offers a ground-level view of the performance hall. Fine and attractive copy.

        To the King's Most Excellent Majesty, this Map of the Island of Jamaica, constructed from actual surveys, under the authority of the Hon. House of Assembly, by whom it hath been examined, and unanimously approved

      First edition. This is probably one of the most striking and sought after maps of the Caribbean Island. Its size is impressive and the aesthetical feature makes it a cornerstone for Jamaican cartography. A very large-scale map, showing physical features such as mountains, streams, and bodies of water, locations of towns and settlements, roads, mills, plantations, harbours, and offshore islands. One of Robertson's important contributions was that he delineated the new county and parish boundaries that had been established a few years earlier. It is among the early topographic maps to show an entire country (the earliest being the Carte géométrique de la France). James Robertson of Shetland (ca. 1756-1841) was Jamaica's first real surveyor in the sense that he worked as a cartographer rather than a land surveyor. He came to Jamaica around 1778 and persuaded the Council to give him a commission to survey the entire island for the sum of £5,000 whereupon he commenced surveys of the three counties and the entire island. In 1802 he returned to England to have his map published and subsequently returned to Jamaica. He soon left, however, to return to England where he died. All in all, the Jamaican Council paid him over £10,000 for his work. He is considered the father of modern Jamaican cartography. This grandiose map has been praised since its publication. See B.W. Higman, Jamaica Surveyed: Plantations Maps and Plans of the Eighteenth- and Nineteenth Centuries (Kingston: Institute of Jamaica, 1988) and D. Webster, "The Ubiquitous Scot" in The Map Collector, 56 (Autumn 1991), pp. 32-33 Very rare; copies located by OCLC: British Library, Clements (Michigan), National Library of Scotland.

        Inquiry into the Nature and Origin of Public Wealth

      1804. First Edition . MAITLAND, James. An Inquiry into the Nature and Origin of Public Wealth, and into the Means and Causes of Its Increase. Edinburgh: Arch. Constable; London: T.N. Longman & O. Rees, 1804. Octavo, contemporary full polished brown calf gilt, red morocco spine label. $1800.First edition of the Earl of Lauderdale's discourse on public wealth, in which he argues against Adam Smith's concept of “value.”In 1796 James Maitland, Earl of Lauderdale, called the attention of the House of Lords to the state of the public finances, but at the time did not offer a formal resolution. Instead he embarked upon a series of writings on the subject. In 1804 he published his Inquiry, which attracted considerable attention, partly because in it Maitland chose to criticize Adam Smith as “the person who has struggled most to establish the opinion, that labor may be considered as an accurate measure of value.” For Maitland, “wealth is everything that possesses utility; but individual riches possess utility and scarcity. These two elements determine value” (Roll, 307). Maitland also disagreed with Smith's contention that there is never “too much” capital and that every saver is a public benefactor (Niehans, 80, 86). Large folding table at rear. Kress 4816. Goldsmiths 18801. Interior fine. Front inner hinge reinforced, only minor scuffing to spine of contemporary calf. A near-fine copy.

        An inquiry into the nature and origin of public wealth, and into the means and causes of its increase.

      Edinburgh: Arch. Constable & Co 1804 - 8vo., (8) + 482pp., without the half-title but with the folding table, occasional minor foxing and a few insignificant rust marks, contemporary half calf over marbled boards, spine simply gilt with red morocco lettering piece. A very good copy with the binder's ticket on front pastedown of J. Tushingham of Chester.> First edition. Goldsmiths 18801. Kress B.4816. Einaudi 3628. Hollander 2398. Amex 288. Mattioli 2194. Sraffa 3233. An important commentary on Smith's Wealth of Nations>. 'Specifically, Lauderdale asserts that: (1) the maximisation of private riches does not lead to maximum public wealth and welfare; (2) labour is not the cause of value or an adequate measure of new value; (3) division of labour is not a major factor in economic growth; (4) parsimony and saving are frequently a public detriment as they may lead to over- investment and a capital glut; and (5) government tax revenues applied to rapid debt reduction will reduce aggregate consumption, deflate profits and capital values, and result in economic distress.' (New Palgrave> 3, p.137). 'To Lauderdale belongs the credit of having been the first to put forward a connected theory on the nature of profit, in the form of a theory, and not of scattered observations. Lauderdale's importance in the history of economics lies not in his conclusions but in the fact that he was the first in England to consider systematically the fundamental conceptions on which the science is based. In this respect alone he is in advance of Adam Smith.' (Palgrave (1926)> II, p.574). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [MARITIME] Manuscript documents relating to the prize San Cristoforo, captured by HMS Anson, 1804

      The Spanish ship San Cristoforo was captured in the Mediterranean by HMS Anson, under the command of William Cracraft, on December 8 1804.

      DNB IX, pp. 170-171; Muller, Bibl. Neerlando-Russe 770; WorldCat (6 copies), Rare first edition of the Dutch translation of John Carr's travels round the Baltic, through Denmark, Sweden, Russia, Prussia and part of Germany, in the year 1804. Sir John Carr (1772-1832) was an English barrister, illustrator, poet and traveller. ''He was called to the bar at the Middle Temple, but from reasons of health found it advisable to travel, and published accounts of his journeys in different European countries, which though without much intrinsic merit, obtained a wide circulation on account of their light, gossipy style, and the fact that in the species of literature there was then comparatively little competition'' (DNB). He started his travels to the north of Europe in 1804 and describes the different cities he visited and the people he meets, with remarks on their hospitality and their eating habits, describing, for example, "a Swedish meal".From the library of the Swedish bibliophile and collector Gustaf Bernström (1877-1966). Only a few minor spots or stains, otherwise in very good condition, and virtually untrimmed, leaving most deckles intact.
