        A Voyage to Cochinchina, in the Years 1792 and 1793:

      London: Cadell and Davies, , 1806. containing a General View of the Valuable Productions and the Political Importance of this Flourishing Kingdom; and also of such European Settlements as were visited on the Voyage: with Sketches of the Manners, Character, and Condition of their Several Inhabitants. To which is annexed an Account of a Journey, made in the Years 1801 and 1802, to the Residence of the Chief of the Booshuana Nation, being the Remotest Point in the Interior of Southern Africa to which Europeans have hitherto penetrated … Quarto (265 × 204 mm). Contemporary streaked calf, red morocco label renewed, rolled bands, urn devices gilt in compartments, gilt panelling to the boards, enclosing central marbled panel, undulate edge-roll, marbled endpapers. 19 hand-coloured aquatint plates after W. Alexander and S. Daniell, including 3 of Africa and 3 of Rio de Janeiro (one a folding view of the land round the harbour), 2 maps (one a coloured lithograph of Rio, the other an engraved chart of South Africa with route inked in red). Slightly rubbed, rebacked with the original spine laid down, restoration at the head- and tail-cap, corners bumped, light browning throughout, and some foxing, some offsetting from the plates as usual, particularly the map of Rio, very good. First edition of the "first illustrated English work on … Vietnam"(Hill). A description of the outward voyage of Lord Macartney's embassy to China. "The voyage visited Madeira, the Canary Islands, and Rio de Janeiro; a description of that city and of Brazil in general is given. Touching at Tristan da Cunha, the ship rounded the Cape and eventually reached Cochin China via the city of Batavia on Java. The volume is also of Cook interest, as it describes finding Captain Cook's Resolution transformed into a smuggling whaler under the French flag". The "substance of the sketch" of Cochinchina "is taken from a manuscript memoir drawn up by Captain Barissy, a French naval officer who, having several years commanded a frigate in the service of the King of Cochinchina and being an able and intelligent man, had the means and the opportunity of collecting accurate information" (Preface). The African part of the volume - which "might perhaps, with more propriety, have formed an appendix" to Barrow's South African travels - relates to his "two missions into the interior in order to reconcile the Kaffirs and Boers and to obtain more accurate topographical knowledge of the colony. He visited most parts of the Cape Colony, including the countries of the Kaffirs, Hottentots and Bushmen. He conducted the first census of Cape Colony, undertook a few amateur geological surveys, and contrived an interview with Shaka, king of the Zulus" (Howgego). The son of a Lancashire journeyman tanner, Barrow was initially educated in the local grammar school, subsequently working as "as a clerk in a Liverpool iron foundry, as a landsman on a Greenland whaler, and as a mathematics teacher in a Greenwich academy preparing young men for a naval career" (ODNB). At this time he gave private tuition to Thomas Staunton, son of Sir George Staunton, to whom, as he later admitted, he 'was indebted for all the good fortune' of his life, which began with his service as comptroller of household to Lord Macartney's embassy. Today, Barrow is perhaps "best known for his Mutiny on the Bounty (1831) but, during his lifetime, his accounts of his travels in eastern Asia and southern Africa, published between 1801 and 1807, were better known and more influential. These established new standards for travel writing … His interests ranged widely, but the great bulk of his output had a geographical focus, usually with an underlying imperial theme and a belief in progress and the superiority of British civilization … Collectively, these activities established his pre-eminence within British geography". The account is superbly illustrated with aquatints of views, "types", and natural history specimens, Abbey commending the aquatinting as "of excellent quality". Crested bookplate of Edward Strutt, first baron Belper to the front pastedown. A Benthamite radical, Belper "was a recognized authority on questions of free trade, law reform, and education and earned the respect of many eminent contemporaries … In his later life he also developed an interest in science and literature. He was elected a fellow of the Royal Society on 22 March 1860, and to fellowships of the Geological Society and the Zoological Society" (ODNB).

        Travels in China,

      London: By A. Strahan, for T. Cadell and W. Davies,, 1806. containing Descriptions, Observations, and Comparisons, made and collected in the Course of a Short Residence at the Imperial Palace of Yuen-Min-Yuen, and on a subsequent Journey through the Country from Pekin to Canton. In which it is attempted to appreciate the Rank that this Extraordinary Empire may be considered to hold in the Scale of Civilized Nations. Quarto (262 × 210 mm). Contemporary Russia, title gilt direct to the spine, wide flat bands gilt, compartments gilt with small floral tools, boards with French fillet panel gilt, enclosing an undulate rolled panel, marbled edges and endpapers, Greek key roll to the turn-ins. 8 engraved plates, of which 5 are hand-coloured aquatints after William Alexander, the portrait of Van-ta-gin one of the embassy's guide-interpreters bound as the frontispiece, 2 of the 3 uncoloured plates being double-page - ordnance and musical instruments - illustrations and musical notation to the text. Armorial bookplate of Thomas Hussey to the front pastedown. A little rubbed, joints professionally restored, light browning and some foxing throughout, off-set from the plates as usual, remains a very good copy in a handsome contemporary binding. Second edition, first published in 1804. "Barrow accompanied Macartney's mission to the court of China in 1792 as his private secretary, and the present account of the country, accompanied by a number of fine plates, is one of the best illustrated English travels on China" (Hill). Barrow was the only son of a Lancashire journeyman tanner, educated at the local grammar school, "which he left at the age of thirteen, Barrow worked successively as a clerk in a Liverpool iron foundry, as a landsman on a Greenland whaler, and as a mathematics teacher in a Greenwich academy preparing young men for a naval career, until offered the position of comptroller of household to Lord Macartney's embassy to China" (ODNB) Subsequently Barrow accompanied Macartney to the Cape, and in 1798 was made auditor general, "His intention to settle at the Cape was frustrated by its return to the Dutch in 1803. He was offered the second secretaryship of the Admiralty by Dundas in 1804, and this he held ... until 28 January 1845." An ardent imperialist, Barrow dedicated himself to the promotion of exploring expeditions - including Lander to the Niger; the arctic endeavours of John Ross, James Clark Ross and Sir John Franklin; Clapperton and Laing in North Africa; and King, Cunningham and Sturt in Australia - and the improvement of the facilities and administration of the Navy. His accounts of his own experiences in Asia and Africa "established new standards for travel writing." The exclusion of Europeans from China "left China very much terra incognita well into the nineteenth century. Barrow was an excellent observer, and the text contains a number of descriptions of Chinese artefacts and novelties. Among these a plate of musical instruments, extensive renditions of Chinese melodies into western notation, and a long description, with illustration, of the abacus" (Hill). The excellent plates are after drawings by William Alexander, who published his The Costume of China. A very good copy of this highly influential work. Bookplates of the Holly Lodge Library of Harriot Coutts, Duchess of St. Albans to the front pastedown.

        Acta publica, zu den Fundamental-Gesetzen des Schwedischen Reiches gehörig.

      Stralsund, 1806. 8:o. (6),+ 158 s. Obetydligt lagerfläckig. Häftad i samtida marmorerat omslag. Ryggen nött. Ur Jonas Magnus Stjernstolpes bibliotek, med hans namnteckning på främre omslagets insida, och ur Ericsbergs bibliotek. Tysk översättning av de svenska grundlagarna, på svenska utgivna under namnet "Acta publica, hörande til Sweriges Rikes fundamental-lag". Under början av 1800-talet inför det franska hotet blev det aktuellt att stärka Svenska Pommerns legala samhörighet med Sverige, vilket innebar flera utgåvor med översättningar av de svenska lagarna till tyska. Bra proveniens. Författaren och översättaren Jonas Magnus Stjernstolpe (1777-1831) var under kriget kopist och kanslist i Krigsexpeditionen, men gjorde ingen vidare kanslikarriär Han satsade istället på en litterär bana, och var även informator åt bl.a.

      London - Printed for J. Johnson, 1806 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A handsomely bound complete set of the Works of Alexander Pope. Pope (1688 1744) was an 18th-century English poet, best known for his satirical verse and for his translation of Homer. Famous for his use of the heroic couplet, he is the third-most frequently quoted writer in The Oxford Dictionary of Quotations, after Shakespeare and Tennyson. These volumes contain all of Pope's major works, including Pastorals, Eloisa to Abelard, The Rape of the Lock and Essay on Man. The editor, Willliam Bowles Lisle, is best known for compiling this set, publishing a ten-volume edition of the work of Alexander Pope with a sketch of his life and strictures on his poetry. His comments on the poet's life were written in a severe, even hostile spirit. Bowles's estimate of Pope as a poet gave rise to a long controversy. (ODNB)Additional material added hereto Pope's opera includes a biography, literary criticism and excerpts from his letters. Volume I features a frontispiece portrait of Pope, with numerous other engraved plates elsewhere throughout the set, including a frontispiece to each volume. With the bookplate of one Ralph Nicholson to front pastedown of each volume. Complete in 10 volumes. First thus. Condition: Uniformly bound in full calf with gilt bordering.

        SO^KEN GAFU So^ka no Bu

      1806. Good. [EHON] Yamaguchi SOKEN. SOKEN GAFU Soka no Bu. 3 volumes, complete. Dark grey (replaced) covers with original printed title labels. String-bound Japanese-style, fukuro-toji. 25.8 x 17.7 cm. Kyoto: Bunka 3 [1806] Illustrated in b+w and grey woodcut throughout. This is perhaps Soken's most successful ehon - illustrating a series of plants and grasses quite wonderfully. There is much use of block scraping to produce wonderful printing effects, especially on leaves and stems. The difficulty of the printing techniques means that this book always hovers on the edge of aesthetic disaster - when it is good it is very good, when it doesn't work it dissolves into pictorial chaos. Ours is very good. As for bibliographic details, our colophon is identical to the Mitchell, etc. copies [Mitchell 498-9], save that in this one the ads on the inside back cover are gone. In good condition overall, the slight worming has been expertly mended. A nice copy of a very scarce and important book. Complete.

        The Warrener

      London: Published by Henry Morland, 1 January 1806. Colour printed mezzotint. In excellent condition apart from some skillfully mended tears. Image size: 17 3/4 x 23 1/2 inches. 19 1/2 x 24 3/4 inches. A lovely colour printed impression of Ward's idyllic print reflecting the English rural ideal, after a painting by George Morland. The term "warrener" refers to someone adept at catching rabbits in their warrens, which the man in this image has clearly done. Bringing home today's sustenance is one element of rural life that Morland worked so prodigiously to demonstrate to his more sophisticated audience. It was a world that grew increasingly foreign to the urbanized world as the 19th century approached. George Morland was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings. At an early age Morland displayed his artistic genius, he learned to paint at three and exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy at the mere age of ten. He was a prodigious painter, producing more than 4000 paintings during the entirety of his career, and sometimes painting two or three works in a day. His beautiful idealistic scenes were a favorite source of inspiration for contemporary engravers, and as many as 250 separate engravings were done of his paintings during his lifetime. His brother-in-law, William Ward, engraved a great number of his paintings reproducing in print his endearing paintings of English country life. Ward's engravings after Morland are some of the most beautiful prints of the period; they combine fine technical skill and inspired artistic imagination to create enduring images that speak of the taste and beauty of the age.

The story of "Beauty and the Beast" was published in French in the "Magasin des enfants" in 1756. An English translation was publised in 1759. The story was rewritten for Benjamin Tabart's edition, which was first published in 1804. [Reference: Moon (1990), c.f.

"There was once a very rich merchant who had six children, three boys and three girls. As he was himself a man of great sense, he spared no expense for their education, but provided them with all sorts of masters for their improvement. The three daughters were all handsome, but in particular the youngest: indeed she was so very beautiful that in her childhood every one called her The Little Beauty; and being still the same when she was grown up, nobody called her by any other name, which made her sisters very jealous of her." - opening paragraph.; 32mo 4" - 5" tall .

        MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT...COMMUNICATING DISCOVERIES MADE IN EXPLORING THE MISSOURI, RED RIVER, AND WASHITA, BY CAPTAINS LEWIS AND CLARK, DOCTOR SIBLEY, AND MR. DUNBAR; WITH A STATISTICAL ACCOUNT OF THE COUNTRIES ADJACENT

      New York: Printed by Hopkins and Seymour, 1806.. 128pp. plus folding table facing p.24. Stitched self-wrappers. A lovely, uncut copy. In a brown morocco backed cloth box. The scarce New York printing of the first official publication to provide any detailed account of the Lewis and Clark expedition, and the first work to give any satisfactory account of the southwestern portion of the Louisiana Purchase. The first section consists of material transmitted to Jefferson by Lewis, giving information on their route, the Indians, trade, animals encountered, and the geography. Equally important are the accounts of the southern explorations, which include two letters by Dr. Sibley, one on the Indian tribes of Texas and the other an account of the Red River and the adjacent country. Sibley gives a careful account of the language, characteristics, location, and population of the various Indian tribes in Texas, with some account of their relations with the Spanish and French. The description of Red River gives a good idea of the physical characteristics of the country. Streeter called this the first account of Texas in book form. Jefferson's report to Congress on the various western exploring expeditions he had dispatched to investigate Louisiana Territory was the most accurate and complete account of the area to appear until the official publications of Pike (1810) and Lewis and Clark (1814). It was widely cribbed by a press eager for information on the vast new lands. The report was published first in Washington, and this rarer New York edition appeared shortly thereafter. An essential Lewis and Clark and southwestern exploration piece. WAGNER-CAMP 5:3. LITERATURE OF THE LEWIS AND CLARK EXPEDITION 2b.4. HOWES L319, "b." FIELD 925. GRAFF 4407. SABIN 40824.
