        Reflections on the Causes of Unhappy Marriages, and on Various.

      1805 - George Cruikshank's Copy of a Rare Treatise on the Law of Marriage and Divorce [Cruikshank, George (1792-1878)]. Lewis, Randle. Reflections on the Causes of Unhappy Marriages, and on Various Subjects Therewith Connected. An Epitome of the Law of Marriage and Divorce. With Judicial Decisions Touching Separation, Alimony, the Debts and Separate Property of the Wife. To Which is Added, a Brief Account of the Civil Law and Spiritual Courts, with a New Plan for Settling Separate Maintenance Without Ecclesiastical Process. London: W. Clarke. 1805. [ii], vi, 160 pp. Octavo (7-1/2" x 5"). Contemporary quarter morocco over marbled boards, gilt ornaments to spine, marbled endpapers, ribbon marker. Light rubbing to extremities, some light fading to spine (that is not really obvious). Some toning to text, light foxing in a few places, some soiling to title page, which has Cruikshank's signature at its head, internally clean. A lovely copy of a rare title with an interesting association. * Only edition. Written by a conveyancer of the Middle Temple, this is a little-known but well-argued treatise on marriage from a legal and social perspective. "The following sheets", Lewis writes, "will doubtless present themselves to the reader as a novelty: the subjects are various, but they are mostly connected; part of them have not hitherto been treated on, and none in the same way. The author having designed this little book for the perusal and information of the middle class of society, he has endeavoured to compose it in a plain, familiar, and concise manner; and introduced some passages, for the use and assistance of such as may be uninformed what books to consult, or may not have leisure or means to read voluminous, or expensive works" (iii). The chapter headings give some idea of this book: "The Causes of Unhappy Marriages," "On Love and Marriage," "On Modesty- Chastity-Continence-And Adultery," "On Separations-The Usual Methods Adopted-Advertisements-The Wife's Debts-Credit by Tradesmen-With advice Thereon," and nine other chapters on the law of divorce, property, the wife's rights, the jurisdiction of the courts, legal alimony and maintenance and other matters, including, surprisingly, the position of paupers. This copy belonged to the great caricaturist and book illustrator Cruikshank. It reflects his large body of satirical [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Filets dorés en encadrement des plats. Roulette dorée sur les coupes et les coiffes. Roulette dorée en encadrement des contreplats. Toutes tranches marbrées. Bel exemplaire. La Bibliothèque d'Apollodore, grammairien athénien du 1er siècle avant J.C. est une compilation de récits mythologiques, de diverses théogonies et de très anciennes légendes thébaines et attiques. L'oeuvre serait en définitive d'un autre auteur, qu'on nomme le Pseudo Apollodore, pour le distinguer du mythographe Apollodore d'Athènes ; elle représente le plus vaste répertoire mythologique et une incroyable synthèse des fables de l'Antiquité en se bornant à une explication claire et simple des différentes légendes et mythes, depuis l'origine du monde jusqu'aux héros de la guerre de Troie. Clavier en donne une bonne édition critique avec de nombreuses notes éclairantes.

"The title of Plaw's book recalls the long-standing ideal of the English country estate as a place of rural retirement.......in addition to several designs for fences and ha-has, he illustrated a wide variety of rustic and picturesque structures.......Plaw was the first practicing British architect to publish a detailed design for an entire village (Plate 33).......Plaw's influence was more widespread than his practice. He was, for example, the first British architect to recommend the use of pise, or rammed earth, in building cottages.....Plaw helped establish several important Romantic alternatives to the prevailing Palladian canons of architectural design."

Das alttestamentarische Motiv der Auffindung des Mosesknaben gehört zu den Wandmalereien, die Raffael für die Loggien im Vatikan ausgeführt hat.

Contemporary calf, covers pnelled in gilt, backstrip gilt with black label, edges marbled. A very good copy, bookplates of Mathew Wilson and Frances Mary Richardson Currer. First edition. The frontispiece is an engraving of the Quintain' Seal and the plate shows seven Shakespeare signatures, four genuine and three fake. A pleasant association copy as Frances Currer (1785-1861) is generally held to be one of the greatest female bibliophiles of all time; Mathew Wilson had married to Currer?s mother in 1800 and the Wilsons inherited the vast Currer estate after Frances died. DNB notes: ?T. F. Dibdin considered that Currer's collection placed her ?at the head of all female collectors in Europe? (Reminiscences, 2.949) and that her country house library was, in its day, surpassed only by those of Earl Spencer, the duke of Devonshire, and the duke of Buckingham. Seymour De Ricci wrote that she was ?England's earliest female bibliophile? (De Ricci, 141).? Freeman, Bibliotheca Fictiva, 503.

        Fragments of oak from Horatio Nelson's flagship, the H.M.S. Victory in a contemporary Sheffield silver box with exceptional provenance

      n.p., [1805]. 5" x 3" x 1.75". "A Georgian Sheffield-silver box, featuring an 1805 silver crown affixed to the top bearing a bust profile of George III in bas relief, 5"" x 3"" x 1.75"", housing a small collection of five wood fragments, ranging in size from, 1"" x .5"" to 5"" x 2.25"", recovered during the restoration of Horatio Nelson's flagship, the H.M.S. Victory. To the inside of the box's lid is affixed a paper label bearing the following text in ink: ""Oak from HMS VICTORY"" and ""1805."" On the bottom right of the paper label there is a second date: ""October 1925"" which may indicate the date of the original sale by the Society of Nautical Research, which sold off obsolete parts of THE H.M.S. Victory in order to fund the ship's restoration. Wear and expected tarnishing of box and the coin, wood fragments bear some wear consistent with age. Of great interest is the largest fragment which is finely beveled at the top and appears to have been recovered from the executive quarters of the ship. The Sheffield box also contains a small white candle measuring 2.75"" long which may have also come from the H.M.S. Victory. Following the battle of Trafalgar, the H.M.S. Victory was badly damaged and could not return under the power of its own sail. After delivering Nelson's body to London, the Victory was repaired and remained in active service until 1812 when she was moored at Portsmouth. The ship served as a training ship for some time but by the turn of the 20th century, it had deteriorated so badly that in 1910 a group of enthusiasts established the Society for Nautical Research to help fund restoration of the ship which was finally completed well after the close of the Second World War (the last repairs were not completed until 2005, just in time for the bicentennial of Trafalgar). Today, it is the oldest commissioned warship in the world and attracts over 350,000 visitors as a museum ship. To help fund its restoration efforts, the Society for Nautical Research took unusable parts, including nails and copper sheathing, and melted them down to be refashioned as souvenirs. Provenance: Society for Nautical Research; obtained by the War Museum from a prominent British naval family collection, which had additionally featured relics from the noted Benjamin Hill Collection?"that holding included one of the largest swatches of Nelson's ensign that flew at Trafalgar in private hands. Some of these relics were featured in a recently-published peer-reviewed article, a copy of which has been included for reference."
