        An essay on education; in which are particularly considered the merits and the defects of the discipline and instruction in our academies ... the second edition, corrected and enlarged.

      London: Pr. for F. & C. Rivington by Bye & Law, 1804. 12mo (17.2 cm, 6.75"). 2 vols. I: xxiv, 342, [2 (1 adv.)] pp. II: iv, 412 pp. Barrow, later Archdeacon of Nottingham, originally composed this essay while at QueenÂ’s College, Oxford; it was enlarged for its first publication in 1802 and then again for this second edition. Questions of corporal punishment, religious instruction, early education, the desirability of teaching the classics, and the merits of public schools as opposed to domestic education are addressed; the two new chapters added to this edition consider dramatic performances in schools (ill-advised and likely to lead to undesirable results, according to the author) and the state of English universities.         NSTC B758. Contemporary half calf with marbled paper–covered sides, spines with later gilt-stamped leather labels; spines slightly darkened, corners and spine extremities rubbed. Pencilled bracketing and marks of emphasis; some light to moderate foxing.

        The Works of Joseph Butler, LL. D., Late Lord Bishop of Durham. To Which is Prefixed a Life of the Author By Dr. Kippis; with a Preface, Giving Some Account of His Character and Writings, By Samuel Halifax. In Two Volumes

      Edinburgh: James Ballantyne / Archibald Constable and Co. And William Whyte, 1804. First Edition. Full Calf. Very Good +. 8 3/4" + Tall. Frontispiece By Hopwood. Two Volumes. Frontispiece By Hopwood, Published By W White And Dated April 1805 (!), Title, Section Title, Vii-Lxxivi, Errata, 372; Half Title, Title, Section Title, I-V,488. Apparently Original Full Calf, 5 Bands, Morocco Spine Labels, Gilt Volume Number And Gilt Devices In Four Other Compartments, Tooled Borders On Covers, Tooled Edges. Some Wear, Joints Beginning To Crack, But Quite Solid And Attractive, Very Well Preserved, Very Good +. Bookplates Of "George Rooke / Coll. Mert. Soc./1822", And Similar Pencil Inscriptions In Each Volume, The Longer Reading "G. Rooke E Coll. Mert. From My (----) Mr. Lightfoot". George Rooke Was A Student At Merton And Later Honorary Canon Of Durham. Joseph Barber Lightfoot (1828-) Was An English Theologian And Bishop Of Durham, Usually Known As J.B. Lightfoot. From 1854 To 1859 He Edited The Journal Of Classical And Sacred Philology. In 1857 He Became Tutor And His Fame As A Scholar Grew. He Was Made Hulsean Professor In 1861, And Shortly Afterwards Chaplain To The Prince Consort And Honorary Chaplain In Ordinary To Queen Victoria. In 1866 He Was Whitehall Preacher, And In 1871 He Became Canon Of St Paul's Cathedral. His Sermons Were Not Remarkable For Eloquence, But A Certain Solidity And Balance Of Judgment, An Absence Of Partisanship, A Sobriety Of Expression Combined With Clearness And Force Of Diction, Attracted Hearers And Inspired Them With Confidence. "His Personal Character Carried Immense Weight, But His Great Position Depended Still More On The Universally Recognized Fact That His Belief In Christian Truth And His Defense Of It Were Supported By Learning As Solid And Comprehensive As Could Be Found Anywhere In Europe, And By A Temper Not Only Of The Utmost Candor But Of The Highest Scientific Capacity. The Days In Which His University Influence Was Asserted Were A Time Of Much Shaking Of Old Beliefs. The Disintegrating Speculations Of An Influential School Of Criticism In Germany Were Making Their Way Among English Men Of Culture Just About The Time, As Is Usually The Case, When The Tide Was Turning Against Them In Their Own Country. The Peculiar Service Which Was Rendered At This Juncture By The 'Cambridge School' Was That, Instead Of Opposing A Mere Dogmatic Opposition To The T?bingen Critics, They Met Them Frankly On Their Own Ground; And Instead Of Arguing That Their Conclusions Ought Not To Be And Could Not Be True, They Simply Proved That Their Facts And Their Premises Were Wrong. It Was A Characteristic Of Equal Importance That Dr Lightfoot, Like Dr Westcott, Never Discussed These Subjects In The Mere Spirit Of Controversy. It Was Always Patent That What He Was Chiefly Concerned With Was The Substance And The Life Of Christian Truth, And That His Whole Energies Were Employed In This Inquiry Because His Whole Heart Was Engaged In The Truths And Facts Which Were At Stake. He Was Not Diverted By Controversy To Side-Issues; And His Labor Was Devoted To The Positive Elucidation Of The Sacred Documents In Which The Christian Truth Is Enshrined." In 1874, The Anonymous Publication Of Walter Richard Cassels' Supernatural Religion Created Considerable Sensation. In A Series Of Papers In The Contemporary Review, Between December 1874 And May 1877, Lightfoot Undertook The Defense Of The New Testament Canon. The Articles Were Published In Collected Form In 1889. About The Same Time He Was Engaged In Contributions To W Smith's Dictionary Of Christian Biography And Dictionary Of The Bible, And He Also Joined The Committee For Revising The Translation Of The New Testament. In 1875 He Became Lady Margaret's Professor Of Divinity In Succession To William Selwyn.

        Essays on physiognomy: for the promotion of the knowledge and love of mankind; to which are added: One hundred physiognomonical rules. Written in the German language by John Caspar Lavater; and transl. into Engl. by Thomas Holcroft. Illustrated by Four Hundred and Eighteen Engravings.

      C. Whittingham, London, 1804. 4 v. (CXLIX, 242 p., [95] c. di tav. con varie sequenze compresa la c. in antiporta; 324 p., [114] c. di tav. con varie sequenze; 272 p., [1], LXI c. di tav.; Da p. 273 a p. 399 p., [153] di tav. con varie sequenze), 24 cm, piena pelle coeva con tassello rosso ai dorsi con titoli oro. Buono, ordinari segni d'uso e del tempo. Complete set. Engraved frontispiece portrait to Volume I and numerous engravings throughout (total of 424 plates, six more of the number called a the frontispiece according with the bibliography). Second edition in English of this work by Lavater, "the last of the descriptive physiognomists" (Garrison & Morton). Most prized for the remarkable range of illustrative engravings, portraits of historical and contemporary notabilities - including Goethe, a friend of Lavater's, Socrates, Locke, Samuel Johnson, Bach, George Washington, Diderot, Wren, and Voltaire - drawn as examples of the "psychological" or emotional interpretation of physical features. The illustration of the volumes was supervised by Lavater's friend Henry Fuseli (described by Lavater as "one of the greatest imaginations in Rome ... everything in extremes ... hurricane and tempest") and employed the talents of Fuseli himself, Chodowiecki, Thomas Holloway, Bartolozzi and William Blake, with four of the engravings being signed by Blake. The illustrations include the famous plate of "madness", "a real scene in the Hospital of St. Spirito at Rome."

        The Opinion of Dow; Or, Lorenzo's Thoughts, on Different Religious Subjects, in an Address to the People of New-England

      Windham: J. Byrne, 1804. Hardcover. Good. 12mo. 3-164pp., lacking leaf A1 (title page, supplied in facsimile). Disbound; paper browned as usual for this period, else very good.

One of his earliest books, Dow had a great effect on American religion in the early 19th century.

        Breve compendio de las reglas, constituciones, privilegios, gracias é indulgencias, de la Real Tercera Orden de Nra. Sra. de la Merced, nuevamente restablecida en la iglesia del convento grande de S. Miguel de Lima.

      1804. St. Peter Nolasco (ca. 1182-1249 or 1256) founded the Order of the Blessed Virgin Mary for the Ransom of Captives (or Mercedarians) in 1218; quickly successful in its work of redeeming Christian prisoners, it also undertook other charitable work. A third "Mercedarian" order was founded in 1260 for lay male and female supporters and assistants, and the first Mercedarian convent was established in Lima in 1535, the year of the Spanish founding of the city, where the religious were noted for their work among natives. This document gives the rules, constitutions, privileges, and indulgences of the third order in Lima on the occasion of its reestablishment at the conventual church of St. Michael. A fine woodcut of the arms of the Mercedarian order, surrounded by a typographic border, graces the verso of the title-leaf. This is the first edition of the Breve compendio; it was reprinted in 1870.

        Hinokami Magokoro-Ry kan [Hinokami Sincere Style Scroll].

      Japan, 1804. Manuscript scroll in Japanese with 27 illustrations of figures with sword movements in red and black ink. 7 x 160 inches on a wooden turned and polished dowel. With a patterned blue silk wrapper, a bit worn, with an label from a nineteenth century German collection mounted at one end. Original manuscript scroll, described as an "aid to memory" showing fundamental on-guard sword positions and the cuts to be made from those positions. The text and diagrams show positions for swordsmanship of the "sincere" or "true-heart" school connected with Nisshin Shin Shin Ryu martial arts. The moves are indicated by placement of multiple sword positions around the elemental figure in red with the sequence of movements indicated by numbers. The explanatory text also addresses mental strategies when facing opponents and provides a genealogy of transmission from Unsho Masayuki, through Nisshin Matauemon to Abe Masa Aki Echizen no Kami. The date of the transmission of this information is 1799 and the scroll is dated 1804. The later German collection label attributes the scroll to Abe Echizen no Kami.

        Jugeanor, in the Mountains of Sirinagur

      1804. DANIELL, Thomas and William. Jugeanor, in the Mountains of Sirinagur. London: Published as the Act directs by Thos. Daniell, May 1, 1804. Color-printed aquatint with hand-finishing on wove paper; plate size 25-1/2 by 19 inches. Matted and framed, entire item measures 34 by 28 inches. $3500.A lovely view of the town of Jhawanu (""Jugeanor""), from Thomas and William Daniell's celebrated book Oriental Scenery, a color-printed aquatint finished by hand.The Daniells' Oriental Scenery is considered one of the finest illustrated works on India. Thomas Daniell and his nephew William spent nine years in India making studies, sketches and drawings of the scenery, architecture, and antiquities that graced the countryside. They then devoted a further 13 years to publishing their remarkably accurate aquatints. In Britain, the impact was explosive. A cult of Indian architecture, landscaping and interior decoration arose, with the Royal Pavilion at Brighton as its centerpiece. The Daniells gave the English public their first accurate look at the exotic sub-continent. Their great achievement still lies in their ability to blend the picturesque with the real, resulting in images that capture the European taste for the sublime landscape, while still remaining faithful to their subjects. The Daniells brought the romance of the English landscape to the antiquities of India and provided England with an accurate vision of this wondrous country.Of this plate, Thomas Daniell wrote, ""Jugeanor is a small irregular place; the zemindar, or chief landholder of the neighborhood, like the village squires of other countries, is lodged more sumptuously than his inferiors; his mansion is tolerably built of stone, covered with slates, and consists of two stories, the upper one accommodating the chief and his family, the lower affording shelter to his cattle"" (Archer, Early Views of India, plate 47). As the Daniells traveled through the mountains around Srinagar (""Sirinagur""), they ""were surprised at the 'considerable degree of population' and 'pleasant villages.' 'Security is a principal source of happiness,' Thomas observed. 'The peaceful inhabitants of these hills not only enjoy a secure retreat from the perils of polished society, but a luxuriant vegetation supplies them with food, and also with gums and other articles of commerce, with which, but sale or barter, the procure from the distant plains such conveniences as their moderate system of life requires'"" (Archer, plate 48). Consisting of 144 views, published in six parts, the work was issued in seven stages: three sets of 24 plates titled Oriental Scenery with title dates of 1795, 1797, and 1801; 12 plates titled Antiquities of India dated 1799; 24 plates titled Hindoo Excavations dated 1803; 24 plates titled Views in Hindoostan dated 1807 (this plate was published in this part); and 12 further plates of Antiquities of India published without a title page in 1808. All plates were engraved by the Daniells and all are taken from their drawings save the 24 plates of Hindoo Excavations, which are after drawings by James Wales. See Abbey, Travel 420 (plate no. 142). Small green mark to lower margin, just touching edge of plate; minor foxing. Near-fine condition, a lovely hand-colored Daniell plate, beautifully framed.

        Letter in the third person in the hand of his chaplain and foreign language secretary Alexander John SCOTT, (Horatio, Viscount, 1758-1805, Admiral)]

      1804 - (1768-1840), to Agostino MILLELIRE, Commander of the Port at La Maddalena, Sardinia, in Italian with translation, saying "His Excellency is infinitely grateful . for his kindness, in sending yesterday the freshly made riscotti", also requesting him "to ensure that the enclosed parcel [not present] reaches the Commander of the first man-of-war of His Britannic Majesty that shall appear in these waters", 1 side folio and conjugate blank, on board Victory, [La Maddalena], 15th February (Transcription) S[ua] E[ccelenza] ringrazia infinitamente Il Commandante Millalire per la sua bontà, mandando gli ieri, di riscotti freschi, e prega il Commandante di far capitare l'inchiuso piego al Commandante del primo bastimento di guerra di S[ua] M[aestà] Britannica che si presentarà in questi mari. abordo La Victoria Febbraro. ai 15. 1804 (Translation) His Excellency is infinitely grateful to Comandante Millelire for his kindness, in sending yesterday the freshly baked cookies, and requests the Comandante to ensure that the enclosed parcel reaches the Commander of the first man-of-war of His Britannic Majesty that shall appear in these waters. On board Victory 15th February 1804. 'Riscotti', a rare word, may be little decorative cakes for a festival. 14th February 1804 was the first day of Lent, while 13th February, Shrove Tuesday, was more of a day for celebration. La Maddalena with its fine harbour lies off the northeast tip of Sardinia. Millelire was of a local naval family. In 1793 his younger brother Domenico famously drove off an invasion by the French, including Lieutenant of Artillery Bonaparte, by loading two cannons on to a launch and deploying them from points round the bay, finally chasing away the enemy who fled to Corsica. To Nelson in 1803, La Maddalena was the ideal base for watching the French at Toulon - 24 hours away by sea but not too close to provoke an attack. The French had overrun Victor Emmanuel I's mainland dominions and the king had retired to Sardinia. He was anxious to preserve his current neutrality, but the British were allowed to stay, officially only for food and water. Nelson arrived on the 1st November 1803. He and Millelire spoke the same language of heroism and endeavour and quickly became firm friends - typically for Nelson, after a first dinner together on board Victory. Nelson left finally to pursue the French only on 19th January 1805. When he reached Gibraltar on 20th July 1805 he had not set foot on land since 16th June 1803, including two years less ten days without leaving Victory. The Revd. A. J. Scott was likewise on friendly terms with Millelire and his family. He was invited to fishing parties and to hunt inland, welcomed by the normally reserved shepherd communities. Nelson had known Scott in the Mediterranean as a good linguist and later at Copenhagen in 1801, where he was with Sir Hyde Parker. There Scott learnt Danish and some Russian, and was employed to draw up the treaty arrangements that followed. When Parker was recalled, Scott explained to Nelson that this was when Parker "stood most in need of his company", but in 1803 agreed to joined Nelson as chaplain on 'Victory'. By private arrangement he also managed all his foreign language correspondence. From time to time Nelson sent him to the Italian ports to mingle in society and bring back intelligence. At Trafalgar, Scott was with the wounded, but coming up for fresh air, saw Nelson being carried down. He stayed with his chief, took his last wishes, and was found still rubbing Nelson's chest to ease the pain, even after his friend had expired. Before he left La Maddalena, as a measure of gratitude to the local people, Nelson commissioned Scott to procure in silver a fine Crucifix and two Candlesticks for the parish church, still to be seen today.

        Voyage à l'ouest des Monts Alléghanys dans les États de l'Ohio, du Kentucky et du Tennessee.

      Paris, imp. de Crapelet, chez Levrault, an XII (1804), in 8°, de 2ff. VI-312pp., une grande carte gravée se dépl., demi-vélin crème époque à petits coins, dos lisse, pièce de titre marron, tr. mouchetées, petites restaurations au dos sinon bon exemplaire. Edition originale rare. À l'instar de son père, le naturaliste André Michaux qui voyagea pendant plusieurs années dans le centre des États-Unis, l'auteur (1855) visita les mêmes régions. Il s'attacha à l'étude de la botanique et de l'agriculture ainsi qu'aux débouchés commerciaux. Ses fines observations sur le Kentucky sont d'autant plus intéressantes qu'elles rendent compte de la situation économique de cet état peu de temps après sa séparation d'avec la Virginie et juste avant le développement de ses relations commerciales à la suite de la cession de la Louisiane en 1803. ¶ Sabin, 48703 - Leclerc, 991 - Boucher de la Richarderie VI, p. 93-115

        Theory of Moral Sentiments

      1804. SMITH, Adam. The Theory of Moral Sentiments… To Which Is Added, A Dissertation on the Origin of Languages. London: Printed for T. Cadell and W. Davies in the Strand; and W. Creech, and Bell and Bradfute, Edinburgh, 1804. Octavo, contemporary full polished brown calf gilt rebacked, marbled endpapers and edges. $3800.1804 edition of Smith’s pioneering first book, a work which he himself ranked above Wealth of Nations and which served as its foundation, both works demonstrating “a greater unifying principle…Smith’s ethics and his economics are integrated by the same principle of self-command, or self-reliance, which manifests itself in economics in laissez faire” (Spiegel), scarce in contemporary calf boards.The Theory of Moral Sentiments laid the foundation on which The Wealth of Nations was later to be built and proposed the theory which would be repeated in the later work: that self-seeking men are often ""led by an invisible hand… without knowing it, without intending it, to advance the interest of the society."" ""The fruit of his Glasgow years… The Theory of Moral Sentiments would be enough to assure the author a respected place among Scottish moral philosophers, and Smith himself ranked it above the Wealth of Nations… Its central idea is the concept, closely related to conscience, of the impartial spectator who helps man to distinguish right from wrong. For the same purpose, Immanuel Kant invented the categorical imperative and Sigmund Freud the superego…"" (Niehans, 62). With the Moral Sentiments and Wealth of Nations Smith aimed to compose ""not merely a treatise on moral philosophy and a treatise on economics, but a complete moral and political philosophy, in which the two elements of history and theory were to be closely conjoined"" (Palgrave III:412-13). ""Smith's ethics and his economics are integrated by the same principle of self-command, or self-reliance, which manifests itself in economics in laissez faire"" (Spiegel, 231). First published in 1759; ""Tenth Edition"" stated on title pages. With half titles. See Kress 5815; Goldsmith 9537; ESTC T141578. Early owner signature (I).Text fresh with only light scattered foxing. A handsome near-fine copy, most difficult to find in any early edition.

        Boydell's Graphic Illustrations of the Dramatic Works of Shakespeare

      1804. (SHAKESPEARE) BOYDELL, John. Boydell’s Graphic Illustrations of the Dramatic Works of Shakspeare; Consisting of a Series of Prints… Engraved from Pictures Purposely Painted by the Very First Artists, and Lately Exhibited at the Shakspeare Gallery. London: Boydell, [1804]. Large folio (13 by 17 inches), mid 19th-century three-quarter red morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. $7500.Magnificent 1804 impressions of the 96 engravings for the sumptuous Boydell Shakespeare, after paintings by the period’s most eminent English artists— including Reynolds, Romney, Smirke, Stothard, Fuseli and Westall—with an engraver’s etched working proof for nearly every plate.“Boydell’s Shakespeare Gallery completely altered the course of English painting. Most painters earned their livings by painting portraits for the wealthy nobility, but when Boydell began to commission works from the best artists in England, they were free to explore other topics and themes, drawn first from Shakespeare’s plays, then from other writers, and finally from the classics and English history. Boydell had almost single-handedly created a market for what was called ‘history painting,’ and painters had a source of income that was not rooted primarily in portraiture” (Friedman, 2). Boydell commissioned Shakespearian paintings from Reynolds, Fuseli, Smirke, Northcote, Porter, Stothard, Hamilton, Bunbury, Opie and Westall, and exhibited them in a specially built gallery in Pall Mall. By 1802 Boydell’s Shakespeare Gallery contained 162 original paintings, from which he selected 96 to illustrate his monumental edition of Shakespeare. These images were “used repeatedly to illustrate the works of Shakespeare, and they appear in all sorts of modified, adapted, and borrowed forms in engravings and drawings that accompany the plays. Producers, directors and critics were all part of that public exposed to the Boydell prints” (Rusche). In 1802, the 96 magnificent plates, “the production of which swallowed up a fortune,” were issued separately for the first time. These were again issued in 1803 and 1804, this latter under the present title—Boydell’s Graphic Illustrations of the Dramatic Works of Shakespeare. “There can be no doubt that Boydell’s Shakespeare… was the most splendid of bibliophile editions undertaken in the 18th-century or at any other time… no printing press, which has hitherto existed, ever produced a work… so uniformly beautiful” (Franklin, 47-48). This copy is bound with an early preliminary etching for nearly every plate—working proofs showing the outlines of figures and blocks of shading, pulled prior to the process of engraving in order to determine the proper depth of incisions, amount of crosshatching and quality of line. The final engraving for the death scene in Romeo and Juliet was produced by William Blake. See Jaggard, 508; Franklin, 214-23. Light soiling and staining to fore-edge margins (not affecting images). A famous set of prints, with early etched proofs illustrating the print-making process, handsomely bound.
