Abraham Rees (1743-1825) was a British clergyman best known for this, his outstanding encyclopedic work, The Cyclopaedia. (Initially published 1802-1820 in parts in Great Britain.) Rees' work not only featured theological and humanistic issues, but also extensive articles on mathematics and natural sciences. The Cyclopaedia, "is the richest work for technology of the period, with detailed text and handsome, carefully prepared plates." Ferguson, Eugene. "Contributions to Bibliography in the History of Technology (part II)". Technology and Culture 3.2 (1962): 169 p. "Rees was convinced that the important progress made during the last decades of the eighteenth century, especially in the fields of history, geography, geology, natural history, and the physical sciences senu lato, required a new type of encyclopedia with the accent on these fields as well as the still relatively undeveloped domains of biography and the history of sciences. The Cyclopaedia thus became one of the first works of its kind to be compiled with the help of 'persons eminently distinguished in these branches of science to which they had devoted their talents.'" (Taxon Vol. 35, No. 2 (1986), 452-453.) Some of the notable contributors to this work were Charles Bruney on music; Charles Koenig, Robert Bakewell, and John Farey on geology; John Dalton and Humphry Davy on chemistry; David Mushet on metallurgy; William Pearson on astronomy; James Edward Smith, William Wood, William Fitt Drake and William Woodville on botany. "Rees Cyclopaedia is one of the first works to interpret correctly William Smith's ideas on strata identification on the basis of fossil organisms." Ibid. The Cyclopaedia included other notable recent scientific breakthroughs, such as Robert Fulton's Cast Iron Aqueduct (described in his 1796 book) which would become his notable steam engine. See also Ferguson, E. "Cast-iron Aqueduct in Rees's "cyclopaedia"". Technology and Culture 9.4 (1968): 597?600. Refs: BMC. vol 21, p. 287(1). Rink, E. Technical Americana, 121.

        Bouquet de Roses, Anémones, Pensées, Nêles, Auricules, Jonquilles et Muguet

      Paris: Vilquin, 1805. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand by Ruotte. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and a few minor foxing marks. An exquisite plate of a bouquet of various flowers from arguably the most beautiful botanical work ever produced: "a work of outstanding importance and interest." Contemporary with the work of Redouté, "Collection des Fleurs et des Fruits" is one of the earliest examples of stipple-engraved and colour-printed botanical illustration. Published in 12 cahiers (or parts) of four plates each, the work was compiled to assist designers of porcelain and fabric, with the plates often showing flowers grouped together, usually matched according to their flowering season. The greatest collection of flower books to be sold at auction in the 20th century was the de Belder collection, sold by Sotheby's in 1987. The catalogue was intended to reflect the uniqueness of the collection, and the cover illustration selected to represent the best of the best was an image from Prevost's "Collection des Fleurs et des Fruits." Dunthorne describes it as, "a work of outstanding importance and interest...issued for the specific purpose of maintaining the great French tradition for excellence of design and draughtsmanship. Perhaps no other prints are more worthy of carrying on the tradition of Jean Baptiste and van Spaendonck than these fine examples of Prévost. Whether bouquets or sprays of flowers or fruit, they possess a splendour and freshness amounting almost to fragrance, which is largely due to the quality of the colour printing" (Dunthorne, p. 33). Cf. Dunthorne p. 229; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p. 127; cf. Nissen BBI 1568; cf. Pritzel 7332; cf. Stafleu & Cowan, TL2 , 8319.

        Försök till jordbrukets lönande behandling jemte bihang om sättet att afrappa trähus byggnader samt utan gips förfärdiga varaktiga tak i bonings rum.

      Sthlm, H. A. Nordström, 1805-06. 8:o. Grav. titelblad,(2),216 s. Samtida stänkdekorerat hfrbd med sparsamt guldornerad rygg och brun titeletikett av glättad papp. Bruna klistermarmorerade pärmsidor och gula snitt. Etiketten lite nött och ett ytligt litet maskangrepp i nedre främre pärmhörnet. Inlagan ställvis aningen lagerfläckig. En liten fläck i övre marginalen på s. 83-84 och en reva på s. 93, även den i övre marginalen. Med Magnus Flincks namnteckning. Från Vegeholm. Bra ex.. Hebbe Den svenska lantbrukslitteraturen 2549. I en bilaga redogörs bland annat för en tämligen omfattande husesyn av Frösunda och herrgården Brahelund, den senare i nuvarande Hagaparken utanför Stockholm. Bihanget upptar s. 181-216 och avslutas med en liten berättelse om rappning och isolering av A. H. Björkman, bruksinspektor vid Stjernsund. Adolf Fredrik Wijnblad (1744-1808) var son till Carl, som genom sitt författarskap inom arkitektur och byggenskap gjort sig ett stort namn. Magnus Flinck (1758-1814) var en skicklig jurist och ämbetsman och gjorde en enastående snabb karriär. Vid 23 års ålder var han titulär landssekreterare, vid 27 ordinarie sådan och vid 34 var han titulär lagman. Under denna karriär avverkade han även borgmästarposten i Landskrona men avancerade därifrån på förmyndarregeringens initiativ till rikets ärendens allmänna beredning. Flinck hamnade dock i onåd hos Gustav IV Adolf, och när denne besteg tronen tvingades han lämna beredningen. Trots detta var Flinck högst delaktig när den svenska lagboken, som del i Gustav IV Adolfs pommerska reformarbete, översattes till tyska 1807. Mot slutet av sitt liv var han lagman i Skåne och arbetade med en revision av utsöknings- och rättegångsbalkarna. Denna blev dock aldrig helt färdigställd. Under hela sitt liv var Flinck dessutom en flitig boksamlare. I biblioteket på Vegeholms gods fanns utöver juridik även stora samlingar av bland annat historia och vitterhet, allt i bästa skick. Biblioteket såldes på Libris auktioner i början av 1980-talet

Etwas berieben, Titelschilde teils etwas spröde, einige oberflächliche Wurmgänge im Leder der Deckelbezüge. Zweite vermehrte, Bd.3 erste Ausgabe (Hayn/G. IV, S.98). – Gelegentlich etwas stockfleckig. Wappenexlibris ALEX F.H.V. SECKENDORFF a.d. marmorierten Innendeckeln, Stempel der „Bibliothek Sugenheim“ a.d. Vorsätzen. Gutes Exemplar der maßgeblichen zweiten Auflage, zu der erstmals der dritte Band erschien. Der Komponist J.F.REICHARDT (Königsberg 1752 – 1814 Giebichenstein), der viele Gedichte GOETHEs vertont und mit diesem „in gutem Vernehmen“ gestanden, bis er sich „mit Wut und Ingrimm in die Revolution geworfen“ (Goethe), 1792 nach Paris gereist und anschließend über seine Erfahrungen in Vertraute Briefe über Frankreich (1792/3) berichtet hatte, auf deren Titelblatt eine kolorierte „Freiheitsmütze“ mit dreifarbiger Kokarde als Vignette von der jakobinischen Gesinnung ihres Schreibers zeugte (vgl. No.1002). Die neuerlichen Vertraute[n] Briefe von seiner Reise nach Paris zehn Jahre später sind dagegen in politischer Hinsicht Zeugnis einer großen Ernüchterung. Unverhüllt ablehnend beschreibt der weiterhin engagierte Republikaner Handeln und Auftritt NAPOLEONs, darin einig mit dem Grafen SCHLABRENDORFF, den er häufig sah. REICHARDT berichtet viel Informatives von den in Paris lebenden Deutschen wie C.F.CRAMER und Paris-Besuchern wie L.A.ARNIM, PESTALOZZI, dem Ehepaar SCHLEGEL-MENDELSSOHN u.a. Sein Hauptaugenmerk aber gilt dem gesellschaftlichen und kulturellen Leben in Paris, was der versöhnte GOETHE in einer Rezension in der JALZ würdigt: „Seine Kenntniss vieler Verhältnisse in frühern Epochen gibt ihm zu bedeutenden Vergleichungen Anlass, und da er Gelegenheit findet, von der Präsentation beym ersten Consul an, die Zustände des höheren, mittleren und niederen Lebens zu beobachten; da er seine Bemerkungen mit Kühnheit auszusprechen wagt: so haben seine Mittheilungen meistens einen hohen Grad von Interesse. Viele Gestalten und Charaktere namhafter Personen sind gut gezeichnet, und wenn der Vf. auch hie und da die Lineamente mildert, so bleiben die Figuren immer noch deutlich genug.“ (No.18, 21.Jan.1804).

      New Orleans, 1805. 20th-century buckram, gilt leather labels. One small ink stamp, small ink notation, and one embossed blindstamp on each titlepage, short horizontal tear to titlepage of the second volume, small marginal tape repair to F4 in the first volume, light staining to some leaves, occasional tanning, minor contemporary ink marginalia, bleedthrough from ink notations on verso of last leaf of second volume. Withal, a very good set. A rare and important set of the the first American laws printed west of the Mississippi. They encompass the first two session laws for the Louisiana territory under American rule, with the text printed in English and French on facing pages. In March, 1804, the Louisiana Purchase was divided into the Territories of Orleans (south of the present border of Arkansas and Missouri) and Louisiana (everything to the north and west, governed until 1807 by Indiana Territory). The influence of French and Spanish laws in North America is evident in these early territorial laws, as it took Congress more than two decades to determine their intent with regard to existing Spanish and French law. These imprints are the same as the second and third works bound with the COMPILATION of New Orleans laws in item 1587 in the Streeter sale. "At the first session of the Legislative Council 51 Acts and one joint resolution were approved, the latest on May 1, 1805; and at the second session 15 acts were approved, the latest dated July 3, 1805" - Streeter. Early Louisiana laws are especially rare; this is only the second time we've ever seen these imprints.

        Des passions considérées comme causes, symptômes et moyens curatifs de l’aliénation mentale

      - 86 pages Paris, de l'imprimerie de Didot, An XIV (1805), in-4, 86 pages, demi-veau blond à coins moderne, dos lisse et fleuronné, pièce de titre brune, tranches jonquille, Édition originale de la thèse inaugurale d'Esquirol (1772-1840), dédiée à Pinel, dont il fut l’élève favori. Ouvrage capital, d'une très grande rareté, dans lequel est mise en avant la notion fondamentale de l'affectivité qui sera maintes fois reprises par la suite. "N'oublions pas – conclut Esquirol – que les chagrins, les peines, la trop vive susceptibilité sont les causes les plus fréquentes de l'égarement de la raison (.) Il serait à désirer de pouvoir placer tous les aliénés dans des positions plus agréables et plus riantes que celles où ils étaient avant d'être malades". Esquirol perpétua le travail débuté par son maitre en reprenant, et enrectifiant, sa nosographie de la folie à partir d’observations nouvelles et de cas cliniques personnellement étudiés. Il propose, toujours à la suite de Pinel, une réforme complète des hôpitaux psychiatriques. Il est considéré comme l’un des fondateurs de l'école française de psychiatrie et il fut le premier conférencier en psychiatrie. Exemplaire de belle provenance : Étiquette ex-libris Koreff ; probablement David-Ferdinand Koreff (1783-1851), médecin et écrivain originaire de Silésie ; praticien de renom, il avait recours au très contesté magnétisme animal.

        Lother und Maller eine Rittergeschichte Aus einer ungedruckten Handschrift bearbeitet und herausgegeben von FRIEDRICH SCHLEGEL.

      bei Friedrich Wilmans, Frankfurt am Main 1805 - 274 S. Holzdeckelband d.Zt. mit marmoriertem Papierbezug. Stark berieben, Ecken bestoßen. Erste Ausgabe der Bearbeitung (Goedeke VI,28,3 [Dorothea Schlegel]; Goedeke I,357,19.5). – Etwas gebräunt, etwas (finger-) fleckig. Exlibris GOTTHILF WEISSTEIN a.d. Innendeckel (Kat.Weisstein 5201), darunter handschriftl. Eintrag „WOLFGANG FROMMEL MCMXXXIV Berlin“ (s.u.). Obwohl ihr Name nirgends im Buch erscheint und die Rittergeschichte sogar in FRIEDRICH SCHLEGELs Werkausgabe (1823, Bd.7) aufgenommen wurde, ist die Ausgabe ganz ein Werk DOROTHEAs, der Tochter MOSES MENDELSSOHNs. Nach der „skandalösen“ Zeit in Jena (1799), deren literarischer Ausfluss FRIEDRICH SCHLEGELs Lucinde war, ging das Paar 1802 nach Paris, wo DOROTHEA zum Protestantismus konvertierte und FRIEDRICH heiratete, bevor beide 1805 in Köln zum Katholizismus konvertierten. Hier entstand ihre Bearbeitung der Geschichte, die die Herzogin MARGARETHA VON LOTHRINGEN 1405 aus dem Lateinischen ins Französische und 1437 von deren Tochter ELISABETH VON NASSAU zuerst ins Deutsche übersetzt worden war. „Den Herausgeber bestimmte vorzüglich ‚das darin aufgestellte Bild der ritterlichen Freundschaft, [den Roman] der Vergessenheit zu entreissen (.)‘. Und in der That ist dieses Bild so gross und zugleich so anziehend und rührend, dass man mit innigem Wohlgefallen dabey verweilt. Maller erscheint bey aller ritterlichen Tüchtigkeit und biederherzigen Gesinnung doch niemals ganz so heldenmässig und liebenswürdig als Lother, und eben durch dieses Nachstehen zeigt sich seine unwandelbare Anhänglichkeit und Treue in einem um so schöneren Lichte: (.) es zeigt sich uns (.) das anmuthigere seltenere Schauspiel, wie eine edle Seele sich dem Leben einer höheren Natur ganz im unbewussten Triebe weihet, und ihr höchstes Glück darin findet, den grösseren Freund allen Hindernissen und Widerwärtigkeiten zum Trotz, mit höchster Anstrengung aller Kräfte und Aufbietung aller Mittel, zu der Höhe zu verhelfen, wo seine Grösse in all ihrer Herrlichkeit erscheinen könne.“ (JALZ 1806, Bd.3, Sp.262). Es wird diese Konstellation gewesen sein, die dem Buch Aufnahme in die Bibliothek des STEFAN GEORGE-Jüngers WOLFGANG FROMMEL verschafft hat. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A contemporary, and likely official, manuscript duplicate of Nelson's final words from his private diary before he was killed at the Battle of Trafalgar: his celebrated "last codicil," being his effort to have the government support his mistress, Emma Hamilton, and their child, Horatia

      n.p., October 21,1805. 9.75" x 15.75". "Manuscript Document, 1 page, 9.75"" x 15.75"", ""Victory,"" October 21, 1805 [but accomplished at a later time], being a contemporary true copy, in a clerical hand, of Nelson's last written words, entered in his diary as the Battle of Trafalgar began, copied from Nelson's original manuscript. Paper watermarked ""1801"" and docketed on verso, ""Last Codicil of Lord Nelson 21 Oct. 1805"" Expected folds, minor chip at lower right margin, small slip at bottom margin neatly cut and then re-attached with archival tape on verso, else fine condition overall.An amazing contemporary copy of Nelson's effort to secure a pension for his mistress, Emma Hamilton, by crediting her with two major intelligence coups that contributed to the success of British arms over Napoleon. Dramatically headlined ""Victory ?" October the 21st 1805 then in Sight of the Combined fleets of France and Spain distant about ten Miles,"" Nelson writes, in full: ""Whereas The eminent services of Emma Hamilton Widow of the R[igh]t Hon[ora]ble Sir William Hamilton have been of the very greatest service to our King and Country, and to my knowledge without ever receiving any reward rom either our King our Country=. First that she obtained the King of Spains letter in 1796 to his brother the King of Naples acquainting her of his intention to declare War against England, from which letter the Ministry sent out orders to Sir John Jarvis to strike a stroke if opportunity offer'd against either the Arsenals of Spain or her Fleets, that neither of them was done, is not the fault of Lady Hamilton, the opportunity might have been offered.= Secondly the British Fleet under my Command would never have returned the second time to Egypt had not Lady Hamilton's influence with the Queen of Naples caused letters to be wrote to the Governor so Syracuse that he was to encourage the Fleet being supplied with every thing, should they put into that Post in Sicily.?" We put into Syracuse ,and received every supply, went to Egypt and dstroy'd the French Fleet; could I have rewarded those services, I would not now call upon my Country, but as that has not been in my power, I leave Emma Lady Hamilton therefore a Legacy to my King and Country, that they will give her an ample provision to maintain her rank in life. I also leave to the beneficence of my Country my adopted Daughter Horatia Nelson Thompson, and I desire she will use in future the name of Nelson only. ?" These are the only favours I ask of my King and Country at this moment when I am going to fight their battles. ?" My God bless my King and Country and all those who I loved dear. ?" My Relations it is needless to mention they will of course be amply provided for."" Below the clerk has added Nelson's signature: ""Nelson & Bronté"" as well as the witnesses to the codicil, Henry Blackwood (1770-1832) and Thomas Masterson Hardy (1769-1839). According to the Victory's chaplain Alexander John Scott, in an affidavit sworn in June 1806, the wounded Nelson confided to him: ""'I am dying Doctor remember me to Lady [Ham[ilton I have made a will and left her & Horatia a legacy [to my] Country."" Following Nelson's demise, Scott, together Captain Hardy, ""found in the escritoire [small writing desk] of the said Deceased a Book"" containing his final codicil. (Hudson, ed., Nelson's Last Diary, 1918, 28). Captain Hardy was entrusted with conveying the diary back to England where, according to one biographer, he was advised by government lawyers that it not be published as it freely discussed the actions of the Queen of Naples. Hardy left the paper with Nelson's brother, William in December 1805, retrieving it two months later in order to read to Lord Grenville, likely in an effort to obtain Parliamentary support for Nelson's final requests. Emma Hamilton's friends accused Nelson's brother William of withholding the document from her until he had secured generous provisions for himself and his family from Parliament. When he finally presented it to Lady Hamilton, William was said to have thrown it across her during an interview saying, ""Do what you like with this..."" (Hudson, ed., Nelson's Last Diary, 1918, 38-39).Despite the efforts of Captain Hardy and other friends, Parliament did not bestow any honors or a pension upon Lady Hamilton or Horatia?"despite Nelson's final and most earnest request. Lady Hamilton lived off the small inheritance that Nelson had bestowed upon her in a previous codicil, but soon fell into heavy debt?"in part due to her efforts to maintain Nelson's estate, Merton Place, as a monument to the fallen hero. Destitute, she spent a year in debtor's prison before fleeing to Calais in an attempt to elude her creditors, where she died in 1815.Rare. Material related to the H.M.S. Victory and Nelson's death at Trafalgar is extremely desirable. The original paper wrapper in which Capt. Hardy housed Nelson's final diary fetched nearly $25,000 at auction (Sotheby's, London, October 21, 2002, lot 77). The exact circumstances surrounding the production of the present copy are unknown, but it is quite likely that it was produced for the use of Emma Hamilton. "

        A practical treatise on brewing, distilling, and rectification, with the genuine process of making brandy, rum, and Hollands gin, the London practice of brewing porter, ale, and table beer, the method of brewing country ales, &c.

      London: Robert Scholey 4to (27.5 cm, 10.9"). xxxii (half-title lacking), 307, [1], 248, 135, [1], 183, [1] pp.; 8 plts. (1 fold.), 5 fold. tables.. 1805 Without a doubt, this is one of the most prominent English works on brewing and vinting of its time, present here in its first editon. Shannon, a physician whose first name is given as Robert by some sources and Richard by others, promotes a scientific approach to utilizing chemistry and methodical processes rather than guesswork or tradition; each section of his exhaustive treatment of the subject provides not only definitions, recipes, and instructions for all sorts of eventualities, but also comprehensive lists of varieties of beer, wine, and other spirits from different regions — so that Kingston ale, Brunswick Mum, spruce-beer, red ratafia, lemon wine, and vino tinto, as well as various cordials, essential oils, bitters, vinegars, and distilled waters, are present here alongside porter, Holland gin, cider, mead, sherry, etc. The author also gives histories of some of the primary types of spirits and liquors, along with details of viniculture, transportation of materials and products, etc. Gabler (Words into Wine) notes that while most writers consider Alexander Henderson's the first detailed account in English of modern wines, Shannon's work => predates Henderson's by 19 years. The volume opens with a list of the subscribers; each book has a separate title-page; and the text is enhanced with => eight engraved plates depicting equipment and five folding charts of various measurements and benchmarks. There are several pencilled annotations present in the margins, indicating practical and analytical-minded engagement with the text. Provenance: Front free endpaper with inked ownership inscription of the Hon. Henry Frederick Francis Adair Barrington, a South African lawyer, politician, and farmer; the inscription is dated 1877, five years before his death. 19th-century half navy straight-grain morocco with marbled paper?-covered sides, edges speckled brown, and spine with gilt-stamped title and gilt-ruled raised bands; rubbed at joints, sides, and board edges with front turn-in slightly pulled at head. Half-title lacking, leaf z1 in the appendix apparently a cancel, title-page with small edge nick, inked inscription and pencilled annotations as above with some final words of notes partially shaved. Some leaves, plates, and sections variously with creasing, foxing, corners bumped, or light to moderate waterstaining; perhaps three short tears; none of this frightful and the volume quite sound. Front pastedown with small ticket of a London bookseller. An important treatise designed to be used as a reference work and a copy of it that was used so.

He compiled the first Arabic-English dictionary and translated and printed the first English language editions of several important Arabic and Persian works most prominently The Flowers of Persian Literature and Vocabulary of the Persian Language. This work contains several extracts of Persian literature, giving both the original Persian text and the English translation.Full title: The Flowers of Persian Literature, containing extracts from the most celebrated authors in prose and verse, with a translation into English, being intended as a companion to Sir William Jones?'s Persian grammar, to which is prefixed an essay on the language and literature of Persia.; 2; xxii, 222 pp. .

Convoquant une éloquence qu’il n’aurait pas manqué d’admirer chez son modèle, il trouve de belles formules pour désigner l’avocat général, "l’homme de la loi et l’orateur de la patrie", "le champion de tous contre tous", "une sauvegarde à l’intérêt général contre les prétentions toujours reconnaissantes de l’intérêt particulier, enfin une sorte de représentant au corps entier de la société". "M.Séguier, dans l’administration de la justice, était placé entre le tribunal suprême dont il devait préparer les oracles, et les citoyens dont il devait protéger les droits" (Cour de Cassation, 'Institut Portalis, Aix-en-Provence, 5 décembre 2007'). - - - 8- Boufflers, Stanislaus Jean de : Eloge historique de l'Abbe Barthelemy ((Paris, Guillaume, 1806), 49 pages. - - - 9- Charles-Henri Belime : Éloge de Massillon, éveÌ‚que de Clermont, l'un des quarante de l'Académie française, par Charles-Henri Belime.

Luce de Lancival (1764-1810), né à Saint-Gobain en Picardie, fit de brillantes études au collège Louis-le-Grand. Il se fit d'abord connaître par ses dons pour la prosodie latine. Un chant funèbre sur la mort de l'impératrice Marie-Thérèse, qu'il composa en rhétorique, attira sur lui la bienveillante attention de l'empereur Joseph II et de Frédéric II de Prusse. Il occupa une chaire de rhétorique au collège de Navarre puis entra dans les ordres qu'il quitta en 1790. Il a laissé des tragédies, dont la plus célèbre, Hector, inspirée de l'Iliade, fut représentée pour la première fois, le 1er février 1809, au Théâtre-Français en présence de Napoléon qui, au total, vit représenter six fois la pièce. Selon Las Cases, "il l'appelait une pièce de quartier général, assurant qu'on irait mieux à l'ennemi après l'avoir entendue". Il témoigna sa satisfaction à l'auteur en lui octroyant une pension de 6 000 francs. - - - 13 Picault, de Tours : Tableau littéraire de la France pendant le dixhuitieÌ€me sieÌ€cle; sujet proposé en 1806 par la Classe de litté [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Charlotte Countess of Cholmondeley and the Hon Henry Cholmondeley

      London: Published by the engraver, No 50 Warren Street, Fitzroy Square, 1805. Mezzotint. State i/ii with scratch letters. Printed on laid paper. A stunning impression in excellent condition. Skillfully remargined outside platemark on top of sheet. Small section in-filled in lower left corner of sheet outside platemark. Lower left corner skillfully in-filled outside platemark. Paper strengthened in upper right corner of sheet. Skillfully mended tear in upper right corner of image. Tiny section of image in-filled in lower right corner of image. Trimmed within platemark on lower margin. This stunning print is a rich impression of Charles Turner's mezzotint portrait of the Countess of Cholmondeley and her son after Hoppner. John Hoppner was at the height of his powers at the time he painted Lady Cholmondeley and her son, Henry. The grand aristocratic portrait had been the domain of Sir Joshua Reynolds, carried on by Hoppner, Raeburn and later, Lawrence. Apart from dressing very young boys in dresses, what separates us from this epoch is the sense of noble vulnerability we feel in the countess, who occupies her station graciously and without apology. Georgiana Charlotte Bertie (1764-1838) married George, Earl (later Marquess) of Cholmondeley in 1791. Her calm demeanor, elegance and self-containment epitomise the aristocratic feminine ideal of the period. Henry Cholmondelely (1800-1884) was about four when the painting was done. As Lord Cholmondeley was a moderate Tory at Parliament. Charles Turner was an outstanding engraver who throughout his memorable career produced an array of wonderful images. Born in Oxfordshire, Turner moved to London in 1795, at which time he was employed by the famous engraver and publisher Boydell. Turner was a versatile engraver working in stipple and aquatint as well as mezzotint. Although Turner produced a wide array of excellent prints in subjects ranging from topography to genre, his main artistic focus was portraiture. Throughout his career he produced more than six hundred plates, of which about two-thirds were portraits. Turner was a close friend of J.M.W. Turner, and engraved many of the artist's paintings, in addition to engraving some plates for 'Liber Studiorum'. The work of Charles Turner is highly regarded by print connoisseurs as an engraver who combined technical skill with an artistic imagination to create beautiful enduring images.

        A Natural History of Uncommon Birds, and of Some Other Rare and Undescribed Animals

      London: printed by C. Rickaby "for the author" [i.e. William Gardiner and Messrs. Robinson], 1805. 4 parts bound in 2 volumes. Titles and text printed on wove or laid paper, two general titles (one in French and one in English) at the front of vol.I with engraved vignettes by Johann Sebastian Müller. 1 hand-coloured etched emblematic frontispiece, 211 etched plates (printed on wove or laid paper, 210 finely hand-coloured, 1 uncoloured etched plate of the Samoyed) all by and after Edwards, woodcut head- and tailpieces and initials. [ With :] EDWARDS, George (1694-1773). Gleanings of Natural History, Exhibiting Figures of Quadrupeds, Birds, Insects, Plants, &c. London: printed by C. Rickaby for "the author" [i.e. William Gardiner and Messrs. Robinson], "1758-1760" [plates watermarked 1803-1805]. 3 parts bound in 2 volumes. Titles and text printed on wove or laid paper, one general title at the front of vol.I with engraved vignettes by Johann Sebastian Müller, letterpress English and French general title and part-titles, text in English and French in double columns, translated by J. du Plessis and Edmond Barker. 1 uncoloured engraved portrait of the author by Miller after "Dandridg," 152 etched plates (printed on wove or laid paper) all finely hand-coloured, by and after Edwards and others. Together 4 volumes. Quarto (11 1/2 x 9 1/4 inches). Uniform contemporary red straight-grained morocco, covers with border of a triple gilt fillet, spines in six compartments with double raised bands, the bands highlighted with gilt fillets and roll tools, lettered in the second and fourth compartments, gilt turn-ins, gilt edges. Provenance : George Savile Foljambe (1800-1869, Osberton Hall, Nottinghamshire, England, armorial bookplate). A spectacular set of "one of the most important of all bird books, both as a fine bird book and a work of ornithology" (Fine Bird Books). This issue, bound circa 1815, benefits greatly from being published at a time when two book-arts were at a high point: the art of hand-colouring was at its most sophisticated and the design and execution of bindings was equally exceptional. The colouring in this issue has the clear jewel-like quality that is a feature of the work of the best colourists of the Regency period. The same period also produced some of best binders since the 17th-century Restoration masters and the present set is a delightfully-understated example of the kind of craftsmanship of which they were capable. Edwards "has been well described as an unscientific but very accurate describer and painter of animal life, and his writings will always remain of paramount authority, from the faithfulness of his description of many new birds, subsequently incorporated in the Linnaean System. He had, says Swainson, the simplicity and piety of Izaac Walton, and may be looked upon as one of our greatest worthies. He retired about 1764 to Plaistow, died July 23, 1773" (Mullens and Swann p.194). "Through the influence of Sir Hans Sloane, [Edwards] was chosen Librarian to the Royal College of Physicians ... Almost immediately after he was appointed ... Edwards commenced the preparation of a series of coloured drawings of animals and birds, used later to illustrate [the present work]; for these he was awarded the Gold Medal of the Royal Society and subsequently elected a Fellow" (Lisney p.127). The work was quite successful and went through a number of transformations whilst under Edwards' control, including the issuing of a French text edition. Shortly after he retired in 1769 he sold "to Mr. James Robson, Bookseller ... all the remaining copies of my Natural History ... coloured under my immediate inspection, together with all my copper-plates, letter-press, and every article in my possession relative to it ... and that my labours may be handed down to posterity with integrity, truth, and exactness, I have delivered into his hands a complete set of plates, highly coloured by myself, as a standard to those Artists who may be employed in colouring them for the future" (George Edwards, declaration quoted in Robson's Some Memoirs… of George Edwards , dated May Ist, 1769).

        Carey's American Atlas: Containing Twenty Maps and One Chart

      Philadelphia: engraved for and published by Mathew Carey, 1805. Folio. (17 1/8 x 10 7/8 inches). Letterpress title (incorporating a list of the maps) printed on wove paper, otherwise engraved throughout on laid paper. 21 engraved maps (11 double-page, 5 folding, 3 with period hand-colouring in outline). Expertly bound to style in diced russia over the original marbled paper-covered boards, flat spine in compartments divided by gilt double fillets, lettered in the second compartment An exceedingly rare issue of the first atlas of the United States published in America. This scarce atlas contains the same maps as the first edition of Carey's American Atlas of 1795. Following that first edition, the first atlas of the United States published in America, Carey printed from the same copper plates used for the 1796 first edition of his General Atlas , adding plate numbers to the upper right corners. Carey would re-issue his General Atlas in 1800 and 1804. Less well known, however, is the fact that he would also reissue the American Atlas in 1800 and 1805. Those issues of the American Atlas contained maps printed subsequent to the 1796 General Atlas , and therefore include the plate numbers from that work , thus explaining the haphazard numbering of the maps. Other than the addition of the plate numbers, the maps are from the same plates and appear to be identical to the first edition maps from the American Atlas of 1795. All the maps are printed on laid paper, and are preceded by a cancel letterpress title on wove. It seems likely, that Carey published this issue of the atlas from his remaining stock of the maps from the 1796 General Atlas with the addition of the cancel title. This would explain the presence of period hand-colouring on some of the maps in this copy, but not all. Although the title states the price of the atlas to be $5 plain and $6 colored, a contemporary ink inscription on the front pastedown suggests the atlas was sold for $4. A second edition of the American Atlas would be published in 1809, containing additional maps. The maps in the present atlas are as follows: 1. The British Posessions in North America ... by Samuel Lewis 1794. Double page, hand coloured in outline 2. The Province of Maine ... by Samuel Lewis, 1794. Hand coloured in outline 3. The State of New Hampshire ... by Samuel Lewis, 1794. Double page, hand coloured in outline 4. Vermont From actual survey ... by Amos Doolittle. Folding 5.

The later issues of the first edition of the American Atlas -- i.e. the issues of 1800 and 1805 (as here) -- are very rare. Neither are cited in Phillips or LeGear and we can find no examples of this 1805 issue in the book auction records or OCLC. Howes C135 (seemingly confusing issues of the American Atlas with Carey's American Pocket Atlas ); Streeter Sale 79 (1800 issue). This issue not in Phillips or Sabin.
