        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. Bernhard von Beskow. Han är idag huvudsakligen känd för sina översättningar, där inte minst Don Quixote utmärker sig

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.

        A Winter in London; or, Sketches of Fashion: A Novel, in Three Volumes.

      London: Printed for Richard Phillips, Blackfriars. 1806. - First edition of an often reprinted novel, 3 volumes, 12mo., 167 x 108 mm, pp: viii,[1]-272; ii,[1]-276; ii,[1]-265, volume 1 publishers adverts to verso of vii, Dedication to the Right Honourable the Countess of Moira, volume 1 title page a little marked, neat contemporary owner signature to title page of each volume, occasional foxing otherwise very good, half contemporary calf, marbled boards, spines gilt ruled, gilt lettered 'Winter in London' on red leather label, front hinge of volume 1 neatly split, worn & marked however sound & very good. Uncommon in the first edition. Surr, Thomas Skinner (bap. 1770, d.1847), wrote several novels which contained portraits of well-known persons of his time. Best-known of these was 'A Winter in London' (1806), which satirized Georgiana, duchess of Devonshire, in its characterization of the duchess of Belgrave as a well-meaning but ineffectual woman who is constantly being imposed upon by fraudsters. In one episode she is tricked into a bribe to prevent the publication of a libellous memoir and in another she tries to pawn some borrowed jewels, only to be robbed by the servant that she has sent to the jewellers. An inveterate gambler, the character was a gross distortion of the duchess of Devonshire, but it hit close to home in some respects. She was consequently 'dreadfully hurt at the novel' (Foreman, 356) although the Dictionary of National Biography's contention that it hastened her death is unsubstantiated. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.

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.

Minor browning, foxing and staining. In very good condition overall. . "The largest portion of Spohr&#39;s chamber music was for strings alone, ranging from 19 unsurpassed duos for two violins to four masterly, and largely unemulated, double string quartets. These, together with the 36 string quartets (and several other works for the same combination), seven string quintets and the String Sextet of 1848, display a number of common features. Spohr&#39;s own mastery of the violin is evident in all of them, and their technical difficulties, together with the particular style of performance necessary to secure their full effect, may partly explain their infrequent performance. The quartets, especially, fall into two distinct categories: solo quartets in the tradition of Rode (often entitled "Quatuor brillant"), which are essentially violin concertos with string trio accompaniment, and true quartets where the interest is more evenly divided between the instruments. At its most baneful, Spohr&#39;s virtuosity induced him to slip into predictable passage-work in the linking sections between the main tonal centres of his sonata form movement... There are, however, many examples of brilliance without vapidity in these works and his imagination seems particularly to have been stimulated by less usual combinations."

      London: Printed for J. Johnson, in St. Paul&#39;s Church-yard, by T. Bensley, Bolt Court, Fleet Street, 1806. Third Edition. Full Calf. Fine. Scarce early edition, in two octavo volumes, with many important alterations and additions, particularly the appendix, in which Malthus replied to his critics. xvi, 505, [61]; vii, [1], 559, [1]pp, with half-titles, index at end of vol. 1, and colophon at foot of leaf 2N8r of vol. 2 (T. Bensley, printer, Bolt Court, Fleet Street, London). Handsomely bound in fine contemporary calf, boards framed with double rules in gilt, flat spines in six compartments stamped with central ornaments in gilt, recent green and red morocco lettering pieces; all edges marbled, marbled end papers. A Fine set, the contents remarkably clean, fresh and bright. Provenance: From the library of the Earl of Camden (John Jeffries Pratt, 1759&#150;1840)), with his armorial bookplate on front paste downs. Kress Library B.5067. Goldsmiths 19210. PMM 251 (for 1798 edition). & Important Third Edition of Malthus&#39;s influential macro-economic theories, considerably enlarged from the 1798 first edition (published anonymously) and and following "Great Quarto" edition of 1803, with the fourth and sixth chapters considerably rewritten "on account of an error into which the author had fallen." Malthus&#39;s assertion that while population increases geometrically food supplies expand only arithmetically, while perhaps an oversimplification, laid the groundwork for many social and scientific innovations of the 19th century, most notably Charles Darwin&#39;s theory of evolution. According to the ODNB, "Darwin acknowledged Malthus&#39;s influence in the development of his theory of natural selection, and the principle of population became accepted as a central tenet of classical political economy."

After entering the Royal Academy schools, he became the pupil of Allan Ramsay, for whom he later worked as a deputy. He contributed several plates to Robert Thornton&#39;s seminal botanical study the "Temple of Flora," and provided drawings for William Taplin&#39;s "Sportsman&#39;s Cabinet." Throughout his career Frederick Christian Lewis reproduced a number of animal paintings by Reinagle into aquatint. Lewis&#39;s tremendous skill as an engraver earned him regular commissions from the Royal Family and other patrons, and led to his collaboration on J. M. W. Turner&#39;s Liber Studiorum. This wonderful work is both a superior print and a beautiful image, and it exemplifies the skill of both painter and printmaker. Siltzer, The Story of British Sporting Prints p. 370.

Barrow accompanied Lord Macartney, as private secretary, on his mission to the Cape of Good Hope in 1797, being promoted to auditor general in 1798. "Macartney at once sent him on a double mission, viz. to reconcile the Kaffirs and Boers, and to obtain more accurate topographical knowledge of the colony, there being then no map which embraced one-tenth of it. In pursuit of these objects he traversed every part of the colony, and visited the several countries of the Kaffirs, Hottentots, and the Bosjesmen, performing &#39;a journey exceeding one thousand miles on horseback, on foot, and very rarely in a covered wagon, and full half the distance as a pedestrian, and never except for a few nights sleeping under a roof&#39;... He owed his appointment [as second secretary of the Admiralty] mainly to the ability he had shown at the Cape and in his history of the colony, with its unrivalled map" (DNB). Barrow was elected to the Royal Society in 1805, and was one of the founders of the Royal Geographical Society. His accounts "established new standards for travel writing" and through his friendship with John Murray he "secured the publication of a succession of travellers&#39; accounts which generated the great public interest in exploration." (ODNB) Armorial bookplate of Thomas Hussey to the front pastedowns.

        Plate XXX. [Millet&#39;s minion, Super royal and the Double swalsh peaches.] Aquatint from Pomona Britannica

      London.. 1806.. Color aquatint with added handcolor, plate mark 18 3/4 x 14 3/4 inches on sheet 21 1/2 x 16 3/4 inches. Remains of adhesive tape at upper edge of verso from previous matting (not visible from recto), a couple of tiny foxed spots in margin, light toning to margins (just outside platemark)from previous matting. There is some fading to the color, but this is still a striking image. This exquisite print is from the first, folio, edition of George Brookshaw&#39;s lavish production "Pomona Britannica; or, A Collection of the Most Esteemed Fruits at present cultivated in the country; together with the Blossoms and Leaves of such as are necessary to distinguish the various sorts from each other." This magnificent work of 90 plates was published in 1812, although the plates are dated between 1804 and 1812, having been issued in parts over that period. The plates were printed in color by the aquatint process, with some stipple, and then highlighted with handcolor. This plate (number 30) is a lovely image of three peaches, each with a leaf and blossoms, with a two tone background showing off the printer&#39;s skill. .
