        MEMOIRS OF THE LIFE OF AGRIPPINA, the wife of Germanicus. 3 volumes,

London, 1804. . 8vo, (190x117mm), xxxviii,319; vi,340; (iii-)viii,352p. printed on a thin, fine, handmade paper, a slight stain to K1 of vol. 1, a small piece torn (without text loss) from the fore-margin of Y8 of vol. 2, and some faint spotting of the final few leaves of vols 1 & 3. Later 19th century half calf, backstrips faded and the corner tips rubbed, Spanish pattern marbled paper sides. Perhaps better known as a writer of influential works on education, Hamilton's biography of Agrippina the Elder has been called 'an important attempt to deal seriously with the life of an admirable Roman woman' and one which displays a fine understanding of Roman laws and customs.

        [Pineapple] Black Antigua

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, [1804-1812]. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In excellent condition.18 1/4 x 13 inches. 22 7/8 x 17 7/8 inches. A fine image from Brookshaw's masterpiece: 'Pomona Britannica; or, A Collection of the Most Esteemed Fruits'. George Brookshaw's 'Pomona Britannica' is the finest work on fruit and flowers ever produced. Its breathtaking images display a level of technical virtuosity and beauty that distinguish this magnificent work as a true work of art.As a retired cabinetmaker, Brookshaw produced his seminal botanical study late in his career, at first publishing it in parts and then as a complete edition in 1812. The fact that this outstanding work took ten years to complete is evident in the quality of its images and the care with which Brookshaw executed each individual picture. 'Pomona Britannica' was produced as a visual record of the best available varieties of fruit in an attempt to encourage gardeners to experiment with growing fruit, and illustrates examples found in the Royal gardens at Hampton Court, Kensington Gardens, and the private gardens of the Prince of Wales in Blackheath.'Pomona Britannica' differs from other botanical works in its dark aquatinted backgrounds and its stylized compositions. By using aquatint to create a contrasting background, Brookshaw manages to produce a truly dramatic effect. His use of stylized composition distinguishes his pictures from the dry scientific illustrations found in other botanical studies and creates an exceptionally beautiful visual experience. 'Pomona Britannica' is not only a didactic study, it is a masterpiece of illustration in which every picture is a testament to the artist's talent and ingenuity. Cf. Dunthorne 50; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p. 81; cf. Nissen BBI 244; cf. Sandra Raphael An Oak Spring Pomona 40a.

        Pomona Britannica; or, a Collection of the most esteemed fruits at present cultivated in this country... Selected principally from the Royal Gardens at Hampton Court, and the remainder from the most celebrated gardens round London. Accurately drawn and coloured from Nature, with full descriptions of their various qualities, seasons, &c

      London: printed for the Author by T. Bensley, published by White, Cochrane, & Co., E. Lloyd and W. Lindsell, [1804-] 1812 [text watermarked 1811, plates watermarked 1801-1811]. Broadsheet. (22 5/8 x 17 1/2 inches). Letterpress dedication to the Prince Regent, small format additional text leaf bound facing plate XL, small correction slip pasted onto p.26. 90 fine aquatint and stipple-engraved plates, printed in colours and finished by hand. Extra-illustrated with a fine contemporary watercolour of plate LII (Black Prince grapes), with a printed imprint from another plate altered in manuscript mounted at the bottom of the image. Contemporary olive green straight grain morocco, covers elaborately bordered in blind and gilt, expertly rebacked to style. A fine copy of "one of the finest colour-plate books in existence" (S.T. Prideaux), the most famous of all English pomological works: this copy extra-illustrated with an original watercolour and with proof and early impressions of the plates. Originally published in parts between 1804 and 1812, the work contains depictions and brief descriptions of over two hundred and fifty varieties of fruit, the majority shown against striking dark aquatint backgrounds that have become Brookshaw's trademark. The images include seven plates of Cherries, ten of Plums and Apricots, fifteen of Peaches and Nectarines, five of Pineapples, seventeen of Grapes, nine of Melons, eleven of Pears and seven of Apples. Most of the drawings were taken from specimens in the Royal Gardens at Hampton Court, Windsor, Kensington Gardens, the Prince of Wales' house at Blackheath, the Duke of York's residence at Oatlands, but others came from the noble collections at Sion House, Strawberry Hill, Osterley Park and Chiswick House, and the private collections of connoisseurs such as James Maddock of Walworth, Dr. John Coakley Lettsom of Grove Hill in Camberwell and Sir Joseph Banks. Each fruit was originally painted by George Brookshaw and then engraved either by Brookshaw or his brother Richard; additionally, one plate (number XLVIII) is identified as being engraved by H. Merke. "The Pomona was intended to be an accurate record of the best available varieties of fruit and to encourage people to cultivate them. Brookshaw's introduction underlines the importance of the subject by recommending it to the infant Horticultural Society (founded in 1804): 'It should be the business of the Horticultural Society, to try experiments to improve the growth of fruit. How much so ever the subject has been neglected, it is of sufficient importance to demand attention.' It also expresses the author's and artist's own hopes for his book's value: 'If any hints given in the course of these sheets, should induce the lovers of fruit to make any discovery, to be the means of improving their gardens, the end will have been in a great measure answered for which this Work was executed'" (Oak Spring Pomona ). By 1783 the Birmingham-born Brookshaw was a fashionable and successful cabinet-maker, known for his furniture with all-over painted decoration with figurative, landscape and, above all, floral themes, and with a list of highly-placed clients including the Prince of Wales. By the mid-1790s he had disappeared: Lucy Woods suggests that a scandal of some sort drove him to abandon his career and to live under an assumed name, working at a completely new career. She believes that A New Treatise on Flower Painting, published anonymously in 1797 and later (in the third edition of 1799) in the name of G.Brown, was actually by Brookshaw, whose A Supplement to the Treatise on Flower Painting published in 1817 has largely the same content - including 11 plates supposedly by Brookshaw but identical to those in the earlier work, where they were attributed to Brown. The Pomona thus marks the first public resumption by Brookshaw of the use of his own name, as well as the first indication of his new metier. This lovely copy includes the notable addition of an original watercolour of plate 53, an image of Black Prince grapes (bound facing the printed plate). Furthermore, this copy includes proofs of at least four plates (43, 44, 52 and 92), unrecorded colour variants of others (7 and 37), as well as early states of others (including 2, 3, 7, 47, 51 and 61). Bunyard p.432; Dunthorne 50; Great Flower Books (1990), p. 52; Nissen BBI 244; Oak Spring Pomona 40a; Prideaux p.2; Pritzel 1182; Taschen (publishers) George Brookshaw Pomona Britannica The Complete Plates, (Koln, London, etc.: 2002).

        RASSELAS, PRINCE OF ABISSINIA. Printed with patent types, in a manner never before attempted.

      Banbury: printed for P. Rusher and sold by [three named London booksellers]; and J. Rusher, Reading., 1804. . 8vo (in 4s), (202x130mm), [2],135,[1]p. the final page carrying Dr. Johnson's 'To a friend.' A small hole in the fore-margin of the first four leaves, just touching the letterpress, though without loss on the final damaged page, the stitching strained. Contemporary (?original) buff paper covered limp boards, the joints and edges rubbed and worn at the head and tail of the rear joint, the covers somewhat age-soiled, but not disagreeably so; the signature of V. Cheney of Park Rd, Banbury in pencil on the front fly-leaf. (Bigmore & Wyman Bibliography of printing II.280) The head of the title-page reading 'New mode of printing.' Printed in Banbury by John Cheney I, the first printer in the town. As well as being a provincially-printed edition of Johnson's novel, a most significant point of interest regarding this book is that it is printed in the unusual typeface patented by Rusher in 1802 which, amidst other typographic crimes, dispenses with all descenders replacing them with a sort of compressed capital. Cut by Caslons, who really should have known better, there is an imbalance in the weight of some of the individual letters that makes the page somewhat unseemly to the eye. This was the first, but - alas - not the last book to use the type and was memorably described by Bigmore & Wyman as 'about as ugly a specimen of typography as can be conceived.' It was to be another half century before another member of the Cheney family saw fit to visit this typeface upon the public; there, thankfully, its use ended.

        Noah Webster’s signed copy of the documents accompanying Jefferson’s 1804 State of the Union Address relative to the Louisiana Purchase

      Pamphlet Signed “N Webster,” 26 pages, 5” x 8.5”. Washington City: William Duane & Son, 1804. “Message / From / The President / of / The United States / to / Both Houses of Congress. / 8th November, 1804.” Jefferson’s message is missing. The three documents “Accompanying a message from the President of the United States, November 8th, 1804” are present. Pages foxed. Bound with string; last two sheets almost completely detached. Lower blank corner of last sheet missing. Lower edge of first page mouse-eaten. Near fine condition. President Jefferson’s “Fourth Annual Message to Congress” mentioned disagreements with Spain regarding the Louisiana territory purchased by the United States from France in 1803. “Document No. I” is an “Extract of a Letter From Don Pedro Cevallos, minister of state of his Catholic Majesty to Charles Pinckney, esquire, dated at the Pardo, 10th February, 1804” in Spanish with an English translation. Cevallos writes of the “benevolence and friendship towards the United States” of King Charles IV of Spain. Also included is a “Copy of a letter from the Marquis of Casa Yrujo to the Secretary of State,” May 15, 1804, in Spanish with an English translation, telling James Madison that “concerning the sale of Louisiana to the United States [the King has] determined...to abandon the opposition...he had manifested against that transaction...” The second document concerns the establishment of “The District of Mobile” – Spain had disagreed with Jefferson and claimed that Mobile was not part of the Louisiana Purchase because it was part of Spanish West Florida. “Document No. III” is “A Summary Description / of the / Lead Mines / in / Upper Louisiana: / Also, / An Estimate of their Produce / for three years past” written “at the request of Captain Amos Stoddard, First Civil Commandant of Upper Louisiana, to Whom it is Most Respectfully Submitted by His Very Humble Servant, Moses Austin.” Austin had founded the American lead industry in Virginia and later became the first man to obtain permission to bring Anglo-American settlers into Spanish Texas; his son was Stephen F. Austin. Austin’s report is published on 16 pages of the pamphlet.

        The School of Good Manners. Composed for the Help of Parents in teaching their Children how to behave during their Majority

      Boston: Printed and sold by Manning & Loring, 1804 First Manning & Loring edition of a very popular etiquette for children and teenagers, written by the Boston schoolmaster Eleazer Moody (d. 1720). The first edition appeared in 1715, but of that, ESTC lists only the Massachusetts Historical Society copy. All early editions are listed in only a few copies by ESTC and OCLC, in spite of the fact that there were at least thirty-four editions printed between 1715 and 1846. This is no doubt because it was a fragile production and heavily used. Of the present edition, OCLC lists eight copies in North America (Stanford, Sonoma State, American University, Covenant College in Georgia, Louis State, the University of Oklahoma, Eastern Washington University, and the University of Victori) The earliest edition in UCLA's well-known early children's book collection is 1808, and it has almost half as many pages as our copy. Contemporary decorative boards, rebacked in later sheep. Twenty-fourmo. Woodcut frontispiece with verse underneath. Woodcut vignette on title-page. Edges of boards rubbed, light browning throughout, heavier to first and last few leaves, a common problem with American books of this era. Tear in title-page in lower gutter margin. Old ink owner's notation: "Mary Brown her book. Bought january the 15: 1805. Price 12 cents." A good copy of a scarce book. This is one of the earliest manners books for children printed in America. According to A.S.W. Rosenbach, its immediate source is John Garretson's 1684 edition of The School of Good Manners (Early American Children's Books, no. 41). The online Encylopedia of Children and Childhood in History and Society states that much of it was adapted from a 1595 English version of a French courtesy work of the 1560s.
