        The Comic Adventures of Old Mother Hubbard, and Her Dog.

      London: J. Harris, 1806. 32mo. (16)ff. First edition, Moon's fourth state with 1806 date on front wrapper, but with SMC initials on the earliest-state engraved dedication page. Illustrated with fifteen hand-colored copperplate engravings. According to Moon, this is the most significant children's book published by Harris, and surely one of the most famous children's rhymes of all time. Sarah Catherine Martin assembled the material, though its origins remain hazy. The name Mother Hubbard had been in use since 1591, and it has been argued that the first stanza, due to its different meter, is older than the others. Whatever its previous history, Martin's version has become the standard. Morgan says of this book: "It became an immediate best-seller in an era when most children's books were still in the somber clutch of the moral tale." Part of its popularity arose because some believed it to be a political commentary. So many copies sold in the first year that the engraving plates had to be touched up. The book went through numerous reprintings and even today remains popular. In publisher's printed wrappers, which show some soiling to exterior and one-inch split at tail of spine, with handwriting of former owner on upper wrapper. An unsophisticated copy of a chapbook with uncommonly strong plates, bright coloring, and exceptional literary significance. (Gumuchian 4327; Moon 559(1B); 561(2); Morgan 155).

L'insieme costituisce una summa straordinaria del sapere geografico dell'epoca, assai importante non solo per alcuni contenuti assai innovativi (come ad esempio quelli relativi alla geografia africana), ma anche per le particolari caratteristiche di quest'opera, che per molti aspetti rappresenta un punto di raccordo - e al tempo stesso di separazione - fra la cultura medievale e quella rinascimentale.

        2 ALS to ?My Dear Sir?

      1806 - Manuscript in ink. 4pp. 4to. & 2pp. 8vo. London, December 16th, 1803 and May 12, The first of these two letters contains Wilberforce's opinion on an act regarding finance. However, it also includes a lengthy postscript: ?Some of the West Indians are beginning to profess themselves friendly to at least a qualified abolition of the slave trade . I dare not repose much confidence in them. We are indebted chiefly I believe for their fears of being beat and of the marked by the Planters of the conquered Dutch Settlements - you had better keep all this to yourself lest an opposition should be stirr'd up among those who are interested in the African trade, which might crush these first shootings in the Bud.? The second is essentially an apology for his ?neglect of his correspondents? Both were written in the most important period of Wilberforce's life in the lead up to the abolition of slavery act passed in 1807.

        ZARGUEIDA, DESCOBRIMENTO DA ILHA DA MADEIRA

      - POEMA HEROICO, DEDICADO AO ILLUSTRISSIMO, E EXCELENTISSIMO SENHOR CONDE DE VILLA VERDE, Grão Cruz da Ordem de S. Tiago, Cavalleiro da Ordem do Tozão de Ouro, do Conselho de Estado do PRINCIPE REGENTE N. S. Ministro assistente do Despacho do Gabinete de S. A. R., seu Gentil Homem de Camara, Presidente da Real Junta do Commercio, &c., &c., &c. POR SEU AUTHOR (Florão) LISBOA. M. DCCCVI. [1806] (--) NA OF. DE SIMÃO THADDEO FERREIRA. (---) Com licença da Meza do Desembrago do Paço. In 8º De 15x10 cm. Com [ii] br., xii, [iv], 254, [ii] br. págs. Encadernação da época inteira de pele com ferros a ouro e rótulo vermelho na lombada, um pouco cansada. Exemplar com pequenos defeitos (queimaduras) marginais nas páginas 9 a 18, sem afectar a mancha gráfica. As páginas preliminares contêm dedicatória em tercetos ao Conde de Vila Verde, prólogo do autor e dois sonetos que enquadram o poema no ambiente literário da época: o autor, num soneto, pede a Bocage a apreciação da obra e a correcção dos seus erros, obtendo como resposta um soneto de Bocage louvando a suas qualidades e comparando-o a Camões e a Homero. Primeira e única edição deste famoso texto poético (considerado, por alguns críticos, a mais importante obra literária madeirense) composto por dez cantos, de versos decassílabos, em oitava rima, antecedidos de argumentos em verso. O autor (Funchal 20 de Novembro de 1768 – Praia, Cabo Verde 1824) informa, no prólogo, que escreveu esta obra a pedido de D. João Manuel da Câmara, Governador e Capitão General da Ilha da Madeira, descendente do descobridor. Informa também que, como homenagem, inclui no seu poema versos de Camões, Gabriel Pereira de Castro, Dinis da Cruz e Silva e Bocage. A obra descreve a descoberta da Madeira, por D. João Gonçalves Zarco, e contêm um episódio descrevendo os célebres amores lendários de Ana de Harfet e Roberto Machim, narrados por muitos outros escritores como D. Francisco Manuel de Melo. A sua publicação foi propagandeada na época por um dos mais antigos cartazes publicitários que se conserva na BNP. Inocêncio III, 25: "Francisco de Paula Madina e Vasconcellos, natural da ilha da Madeira, e nascido ao que parece entre os annos de 1766 e 1770. Aos vinte de edade veiu para Portugal, com o intento de seguir não sei qual das faculdades em Coimbra: matriculou-se com effeito na Universidade, porém ao fim de dous annos foi preso, por accusações que lhe fizeram de crimes (diz elle) nem pensados! Depois de anno e meio o soltaram, impondo lhe a comminação de saír de Coimbra, e não mais voltar á Universidade. Regressou então para a sua patria, onde já estava em 1793; porém passados annos veiu novamente a Portugal, d"onde voltou outra vez, fazendo ainda depois novas viagens. Tinha sido provido em um officio de Tabellião publico de notas na cidade do Funchal, e ahi vivia casado, e com filhos, quando em 1823 foi preso e processado pela alçada enviada á ilha da Madeira, para conhecer das pessoas, que se haviam distinguido como partidarias do governo constitucional. Alguns soffreram diversas penas, e a Medina coube a de degredo para Cabo-Verde por oito annos (segundo me recordo de ter lido na sentença impressa). Partiu para o seu destino, mas chegando á ilha de S. Tiago, n"ella faleceu pouco depois em 1824. A sr.ª D. Antonia Pussich, que ali residia então com o seu pae, Governador e Capitão general d"aquellas ilhas, dedicou á memoria do infeliz desterrado o seguinte epitaphio, do qual provavelmente se não fez uso, mas que eu vi em um caderno de poesias autographas d"esta senhora, que um meu amigo possue: «Medina, cuja voz alta e sonora / D"heróes cantou os feitos sublimados, / Cumprindo as leis dos carrancudos fados / N"esta campa infeliz se esconde agora.» Este poeta gosou em vida de bastante celebridade; hoje está o seu nome quasi de todo esquecido, talvez com pouca razão; porque nas muitas composições que nos deixou impressas ha ainda que aproveitar, na opinião de bons entendedores. Como poeta lyrico pertenceu á eschol [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Father's Memoirs of his Child.

      - London: printed for Longman by T. Bensley, 1806. 8vo, iv, xlviii, 172 pp. With a frontispiece by Blake engraved by Cromek, and three plates (one folding). Original (remainder?) binding of pebbled dark green cloth, red label lettered in gilt. A little worn, upper joint neatly repaired, slight marginal soiling within. Very good. First edition. Malkin knew Blake well and in the long preface he devotes 24 pages to an account of his friend's life and genius, the first recorded account of Blake by a contemporary. The text of this section was largely obtained from conversations with Blake himself. The biographical account of Blake and his poetry (pages xviii-xli) are described by Keynes as "the earliest available. obtained from Blake himself". The text includes the first typographic printing of the poems "Laughing Song", "The Divine Image", "Holy Thursday", "I loved the Jocund Dance" and an interesting variant in the text of "The Tyger". The child was Malkin's son, apparently an infant prodigy who died at the age of seven. Bentley, Blake Books, p. 18 (a good note on the book) and #482. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
