        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).

        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.

      - 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.

      8vo. 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.

First edition. In the second edition of 1809/10, the engraving of the butcher being bled by a sheep and a pig has been replaced by that of 'the bear turning showman'. Perhaps some parents complained at the brutality of the original image. Small tape repair to the blank verso of one leaf; few small marks; else a very good copy of this rare title. See Darton H1610.

        Standing Orders in Annapolis Royal Manuscript Diary [British Army in Canada]

      1806. 1st Edition. Soft Cover. [An officers notebook including various standing orders, mess rules, pay rosters and receipts for disbursements relating to the 66th Berkshire Foot in Canada, and the 62nd Wiltshire Foot elsewhere]. [Annapolis Royal, Halifax, England and elsewhere]. [s.n., 1799-1806]. Oblong 7 x 4-1/4 inches. 44 sheets with 88pp unnumbered with occasional evidence of excised leaves, the odd blank. Interleaved throughout with blotting paper. Contemporary limp reverse calf, with the attractive printed label 'Sold by John A. Burton, Military Stationer, No. 2, Barrack-Street, (Opposite the Fountain), Dublin' to FEP. With the ink inscriptions of 'R. Lloyd. Lieu. 66th Regiment Sept. 26 '97' and 'T.S. Lyle, Lieut. 66th, Port au Prince' to REP. A miscellaneous military notebook in the possession at least one officer serving in the 66th Berkshire Foot during its service in Canada, with 23pp of 'Standing orders' for the 66th regiment while at Annapolis Royal (Nova Scotia), and several notes of disbursements and receipts of monies, largely 1799/1800, in Halifax (Nova Scotia). The inscription of 'S.S. Lyle, Lieut. 66th, Port au Prince' suggests that the notebook was perhaps purchased from an Irish stationer prior to the 66th's short service in Haiti, 1796-8. Later notes (dated 1802 and 1806) include, rates of full and half pay, mess rules in Jersey and reference to the activities of the 62nd Wiltshire Foot. R. Lloyd and T.S. Lyle, who both inscribed this volume and are presumably likely candidates for ownership, are listed as Lieutenants in the 66th Foot in the 1800 Army List. The 66th (Berkshire) Regiment of Foot was deployed to moved to Nova Scotia in early 1799 and on to Newfoundland in May 1800 before returning home in October 1802 and again to Canada in August 1827 before returning home in October 1840 The 66th Berkshire Foot served in the West Indies and Canada during the early years of the Napoleonic wars, returning to England in October 1802.

        Nuevos Paseos Históricos, artísticos, económico-políticos, por Granada y sus contornos (refundidos y aumentados por Simon de Argote) 3 tomos

      1806 - Rarísima primera edición Tres tomos (Todo lo publicado)El III tomo, rarísimo. Granada: en la Imprenta de D. Francisco Gomez Espinosa de los Monteros. [1806?] El lugar de la impresión consta en el tomo 2º y 3º, el tomo 1º sin lugar y con el mismo impresor. Fecha de impresión de tomo I y II tomada de: Aguilar Piñal. Bib. S.XVIII, v. 1, 2395. 8º, ejemplar preparado para encuadernar, con estuche y caja de conservación moderna. Tomo I: 5 hs. + 300 p. Tomo II: 123 + 197 p. ; Tomo III: 112 p. Contexto histórico y referencias a la obra: “. El 26 de abril de 1806 la Gazeta de Madrid anunciaba la publicación de dos volúmenes de los Nuevos paseos históricos, artísticos, económico-políticos, por Granada y sus contornos. Estos dos volúmenes recogían sólo la Alhambra, monumento que «ha excitado la curiosidad de los viageros inteligentes», a decir del anuncio de la Gazeta. Constituían el comienzo de una amplia obra que debía abarcar toda la ciudad de Granada. Años después se publicó, como luego veremos, un tercer volumen que completaba la descripción de la Alhambra, y nunca llegaron a ver la luz los prometidos tomos que abordarían el resto de la ciudad. El autor era Simón de Argote, doctor en jurisprudencia, caballero síndico, miembro de la Sociedad Económica de Amigos del País y hombre que gozaba de una buena posición económica. Los Nuevos paseos constituyeron un salto cualitativo en la historiografía sobre la Alhambra, de la cual se habían realizado descripciones generalmente breves y fragmentarias desde el siglo XVI, y superaban con creces al más ambicioso trabajo hasta entonces publicado, con el cual rivalizaban abiertamente, los Paseos por Granada y sus contornos (1764-1767) de Juan Velázquez de Echeverría. Sin embargo, la prometedora trayectoria de Simón de Argote se iba a ver truncada por la Guerra de la Independencia, pues su afrancesamiento le empujó hacia el bando que, tras iniciales triunfos, iba a ser finalmente derrotado. Durante estos convulsos años de guerra Argote logró entregar a la imprenta un tercer volumen de sus Nuevos paseos. Este volumen, muy breve, estaba escrito en 1807, pues Argote alude en él a «los terremotos del año pasado», que son los que sacudieron la ciudad en octubre de 1806. Según Richard Ford el libro apareció en el verano de 1812 con una breve tirada, pero ésta se perdió casi en su totalidad cuando en septiembre se retiraron las tropas francesas de Granada y, temeroso de sus compatriotas, Simón de Argote se marchó con ellas. Richard Ford conoció a Argote dos décadas después y tuvo con él una larga conversación. Un desencantado Argote le confesó que nunca había visto la edición del tercer tomo de sus Nuevos paseos, porque estaba en imprenta cuando tuvo que evacuar la ciudad y los pocos ejemplares editados se perdieron. Todo parece indicar que en el último tramo de su vida Argote era una persona acabada intelectualmente y probablemente arruinada por los avatares de la derrota Josefina. Al menos un ejemplar de ese tercer volumen se salvó, y fue reeditado en facsímil en 1985 con una breve introducción de Antonio Domínguez Ortiz. No sabemos si Argote tenía preparados el resto de los volúmenes que completarían su visión de Granada.”.

        Oratio Dominica in CLV Linguas versa et exoticis Characteribus plerumque expressa. -

      Parma, Bodoni, 1806. In-folio (39,7 x 26,5 cm.). Elegante legatura moderna in mezza pelle verde con angoli, dorso con nervi e fregi oro. (6), XIX, (5), XIX, (5), 20, (2), CCXLVIII, (2) pp.; senza due fogli bianchi; poche e lievi ingialliture ma esemplare bello e marginoso. Celebre e raro libro, stampato in soli 182 esemplari. Per la straordinaria varietà dei caratteri impiegati (molti esotici), tutti incisi dal Bodoni stesso, e per la cura con cui venne prodotto, è considerato uno dei più belli del noto tipografo e viene spesso paragonato al Manuale Tipografico; ma a differenza di quello, pubblicato nel 1818 (cinque anni dopo la morte del Bodoni), questo venne interamente composto da lui stesso. Brunet IV, 200: «Cette magnifique édition». Giani 178. Brooks 1003. De Lama II, 172-174: «Libro preziosissimo che fà epoca nella tipografia». A magnificent publication, one of the finest by Bodoni and limited to 182 copies only. Modern half green calf, spine with raised bands and gilt; without two blank leaves and some very light foxing here and there, but a good, large and attractively bound copy.
