Edition originale. Préfet de la Charente et de l'Hérault sous l'Empire et la Restauration, le baron Auguste Creuzé de Lesser (1771-1839) est l'auteur d'opéra-comiques anonymes qu'il publie sous le nom d'Auguste, de poèmes heroïques et lyriques, aussi bien que d'une traduction de Schiller, et d'une vie de La Fontaine. Il publie ici sous son nom le Voyage en Italie. Il donne une très vivante relation de son parcours d'Italie jusqu'en Sicile, dont un chapitre consacré à Bodoni que l'auteur connaissait pour avoir vécu quelques temps a Parme. « Creuzé avait publié, à son retour d'Italie et de Sicile, un Voyage ; selon la tournure habituelle de son esprit, il avait, sans respect pour les vieilles admirations classiques, parlé très légerement des monuments de l'Antiquité et des chefs d'?uvre des arts. Il s'était aussi montré dedaigneux pour le caractère italien. On disait que tout cela avait déplu a Napoleon » (Barante cité par Larousse). Très bel exemplaire dans une reliure en maroquin rouge signée Bozérian. Monglond, VII, 242. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        MEMOIRS OF THE LIFE OF LORD NELSON: CONTAINING A PARTICULAR ACCOUNT OF ALL HIS VICTORIES, BY SEA AND LAND...

      Boston: Printed for William Norman, 1806. 46pp. plus frontispiece portrait and folding plate. Contemporary wrappers. Spine mostly perished, lower left corner of front cover torn away. Moderately foxed, some light wear to text. Overall good. In a cloth clamshell box. The frontispiece portrait of Nelson, taken from the EUROPEAN MAGAZINE, is engraved by the printer's brother, [John] Norman, and is rarely found. The large folding plate entitled "Adm'l Lord Nelson's Fleet bearing down to engage the Combined Fleet off Trafalgar Oct'r 21 1805" is bound after page 22, instead of being the frontispiece as called for in the title, and as found in the copy described in Rosenbach's catalogue, THE SEA (Philadelphia, 1938). "This is quite probably the most elusive American imprint relating to Lord Nelson. It amounts to a pirated condensation of Lloyd's biography of the same year...the folding battle plate a superbly crude homegrown copper engraving. NUC lists AAS, Harvard, and Indiana University locations, but with slightly different collation. One hesitates to use the word 'rare,' but this is surely deserving of the designation." - Howland, describing this copy. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 10850. HOWLAND CATALOG 8-81 (1981, this copy).

      London: T. Cadell and W. Davies; and Longman Hurst Rees and Orme,, 1806. Quarto (268 × 209 mm). Contemporary half calf on drab boards, black morocco label, flat bands, elaborate gilt tooling to compartments, foliate roll gilt to spine and corner edges, edges marbled. Engraved frontispiece, 3 folding maps, and full-page plan, with errata, corrigenda and directions to the binder leaf, half-title bound in.

Slightly rubbed and spotted, skilfully restored on the joints, contents lightly browned throughout, the prelims more heavily so, and some foxing to the maps, one map with neat, old paper repair verso, remains very good in an appealing contemporary binding. Second edition, enlarged, first published in 1799. "This important work contains the earliest information in English about Darfur (Sudan). Browne, inspired by Bruce's travels, went to Egypt in 1792 hoping to explore the oases in the eastern Sahara and to journey to the source of the White Nile. He reached El Fashur in Darfur and was the first Englishman to explore the temple of Jupiter Ammon at the Oasis of Siwa. Browne was the first European to describe Darfur, which he reached with a Sudanese caravan in 1793. He was imprisoned there by the Sultan of Darfur. In 1796 he reached Egypt again by caravan and eventually returned to England via Syria and Constantinople" (Blackmer). Browne's description of Egypt is widely considered to be "one of the best of the period, despite its dry, affected style" (Howgego); the book caused "some controversy because of its considerable sympathy towards, and admiration of, the East" (ODNB).

        Autograph Letter Signed to Auguste Chouteau, Nouvelle Orleans, August 16, 1806

      1806 - Manuscript. Two page ALS, quarto, old folds and creases otherwise very good. Rene Auguste Chouteau, to whom this letter was written, was assistant to Pierre Laclede in the founding of St. Louis in 1763-1764. For some time, under the Spanish regime, he and his half brother Pierre traded among the Osage Indians, but chiefly he was identified with St. Louis, of which by his death in 1829 he had become the wealthiest citizen and largest landholder. Born in New Orleans, he had connections there all his life, particularly in the mercantile field, as exemplified by the present letter, which is written in French. Cavelier & Fils were the agents of the fur traders in New Orleans. This letter replies to a letter of May 26th, received by "le Courrier," in which Chouteau had ordered various goods. It touches on various business affairs and also mentions two names significant in the history of the fur trade, "Mr. Robidou," the elder Joseph Robidoux, and "James Makay", the former Nor'Wester who a decade earlier had headed operations on the upper Missouri of the "Missouri Company" and by this time, had become a solid citizen of St. Louis.

        The Life of the Rev. Dr. Jonathan Swift, Dean of St.Patrick's, Dublin. [With an Appendix: Anecdotes of the Family of Swift. A Fragment, written by Dr. Swift].

      The Second Edition. 14.5 cm x 21,5 cm. Pagination: Portraitfrontispiece of Thomas Sheridan, III, (2), Portrait - Engraving of Jonathan Swift, (14), 488 pages. Hardcover. Original 18th century calf with richly gilted ornamenting on spine and boards and with the original spinelabel intact. The hinges a little weak but holding. All edges gilt with original, beautifully marbled endpapers well preserved. Interior wonderfully preserved and clean. Two previous, contemporary ownernames in ink (J.Turner, 1806 and M.Peele, 1787). Very good overall condition with only minor signs of external wear. This seems to be a large paper edition. Extremely rare ! Thomas Sheridan (1687 10 October 1738) was an Anglican divine, essayist, playwright, poet, schoolmaster and translator. He is chiefly remembered for his friendship with Jonathan Swift. He was born in Cavan, Ireland, the son of James Sheridan, and grandson of the Reverend Dennis Sheridan. Two of his uncles were William Sheridan, Bishop of Kilmore and Ardagh and Patrick Sheridan, Bishop of Cloyne. After graduating from Trinity College, Dublin, he married Elizabeth MacFadden and the couple first lived in Dublin in King James's Mint. He inherited from his father-in-law a substantial property at Quilca in County Cavan. He ran a school in Capel Street, Dublin in the 1720s whose pupils included children of many prominent families such as Anthony Foster, the future Chief Baron of the Irish Exchequer. He was father of Thomas Sheridan, a celebrated actor and elocutionist who was the father of Richard Brinsley Sheridan he had two other sons and one daughter. In 1725 he was appointed a royal chaplain, but preached a sermon which was considered by some to be politically suspect, and his appointment was cancelled. In compensation he was given a living at Drumlane in Cavan and in 1735 became headmaster of the Cavan Royal School where he remained for three years. Other appointments he is reputed to have applied for were the position of Dean of Kilmore and the position of headmaster of the Royal School in Armagh, but neither were successful. He was friends with Jonathan Swift, and had a room permanently reserved for him in the Deanery he was his principal collaborator and wrote his biography. Swift often stayed at Sheridan's country house and wrote part of Gulliver's Travels there. On the much debated question of whether Swift was secretly married to Esther Johnson ("Stella") Sheridan was a strong if not conclusive witness that the marriage did take place according to friends his source was Stella herself. Like so many of Swift's friends, he was ultimately fated to quarrel with him irrevocably: apart from Swift's increasing eccentricity, perhaps insanity, the cause of the quarrel is obscure. Sheridan collapsed and died suddenly while having dinner at a friend's house in Rathfarnham, County Dublin. Swift before their final quarrel called him the best scholar in Ireland Sir Walter Scott in his Life of Swift calls him "good- natured and light- hearted." (Wikipedia)

        Specimen Historiae Arabum; Auctore Edvardo Pocockio, Accessit Historia Veterum Arabum Ex Abu’l Feda: Cura Antonii I. Sylvestre De Sacy.

      E. Typographeo Clarendoniano, Oxford 1806 - xv, 573 pp. Latin & Arabic text within borders, steel engraved frontispiece portrait, vignette on title page, 1 steel engraved plate, partly uncut, rebacked, new vellum spine, slightly rubbed boards, scattered foxing mainly on front and last few pages, book plate of Peter Fraser. Copy in good condition. Edward Pococke (1604-1691), whose notes enriched this work, did perhaps more than any other man of his day to promote Oriental scholarship in England, travelling and collecting rare manuscripts ( It has been said that of all the numerous collectors of MSS. who have acquired books for the Bodleian. Pococke alone escaped being deceived and cheated in his purchases)., becoming Master of Arabic and first professor of the Arabic lecture at Oxford, and publishing valuable scholarly works like the present one. The Specimen Historiae is an excerpt from the Mukhtasar-fi-d-duwal (Universal History) of Grigher ( 897-967), Arab scholar who rose to prominent position in the Jacobite church at Aleppo and in Azerbaijan, and is the most valuable authority available for the Arabs in their pre-islamic and early Moslem days. Pococke uses the Arabic work as a centrepiece for an elaborate series of essays on Arabic history, literature, religion, and science. The essays are clearly based upon Pococke’s life - long researches on this and hundreds of other Arabic manuscripts, and his sound scholarship and remarkable erudition in the area of Oriental studies. It has been asserted that the Specimen and the Baingrigii Canicularia (1648) by John Greaves were the first two works printed in Arabic types at Oxford. The 1648 imprint on this work’s second title is undoubtedly the date when the whole work was first set up. ( D. N. B. Encyclopaedia Britanica). The extract from Abu ‘l-Faraj is the first Arabic text ever printed at Oxford, though the type had already been used by Henry Hall to print John Greave’s edition of Ulugh Beg’s Persian astronomical work at Oxford in 1648.

        Voyage en Crimée et sur les Bords de la Mer Noire, pendant l'année 1803; suivi d'un Mémoire sur le Commerce de cette Mer, et de Notes sur les principaux Ports commerçans

      Five head-pieces, one tail-piece, two folding maps, three folding plates (all engraved), & three folding printed tables. 4 p.l., xix, 302 pp., one leaf of errata. 8vo, cont. marbled sheep (head of lower joint a little split), flat spine richly gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: Bossange, 1806. First edition of an important book on the Crimea; it also contains descriptions of previously unrecorded coins and medals from the area. Reuilly (1780-1810), man of letters and diplomat, traveled extensively in eastern Europe. In 1803, Reuilly joined the staff of the Duc de Richelieu, the recently named governor of Odessa. Befriended by the German naturalist Pallas, the two travelled throughout southern Russia, especially the Crimea, and even to the Azov Sea. The first part of this work provides a history of the region, before and after the Russian annexation in 1783, and describes the climate, natural resources, its inhabitants, customs, etc. There is a most interesting chapter devoted to Crimean coins and medals, of which little was known at the time. Reuilly formed a large collection of coins and medals, notable for the Greek, Byzantine, Scythian, and Crimean examples, which he later donated to the Royal Library. Pages 233-40 present the itinerary of Reuilly and Pallas. The second part of the work details the commercial activities of the Black Sea region, including agriculture, fishing, and industry. There are also descriptions of the most important ports including Sevastopol, Odessa, Kherson, and Feodosia. Pages [285]-302 contain an invaluable vocabulary of local words. The first map depicts Sevastopol and its environs. The second large map, of the Crimea and southern parts of modern-day Russia, was compiled by Jean-Baptiste Poirson. The three engraved plates are some of the earliest images of coins and medals found in the area. The three tables present data on the exports and imports of the region. Very good copy with infrequent foxing. Bookplate of Alexandre-Auguste Ledru-Rollin (1807-74), French politician. ❧ N.B.G., Vol. 41, cols. 60-61.

        Memoirs of the life, writings and correspondence of Sir William Jones ... by Lord Teignmouth

      London: John Hatchard, 1806. Second edition, 4to, pp. xv, [5], 531; fine engraved portrait frontispiece, plate of facsimile handwriting, errata slip tipped in at p. 1; clean tear in p. 211; mild foxing throughout; good, sound copy in orig. marbled paper-covered boards, neatly rebacked with new paper label on spine. Jones (1746-1794), the great Oriental scholar and co-founder (with Charles Wilkins) of the Asiatic Society of Bengal, was the first to discover the relationship between the Sanskrit, Gothic, Greek and Latin languages. "His clear understanding of the basic principles of scientific linguistics provided the foundation on which Rask, Bopp, and Grimm built the imposing structure of comparative Indo-European studies" (PMM).

        WAR IN DISGUISE; OR THE FRAUDS OF THE NEUTRAL FLAGS

      Hopkins & Seymour, January, NY 1806 - 8vo., vi (1) 215 pp. Bound with; AN ANSWER TO WAR IN DISGUISE; OR, REMARKS UPON THE NEW DOCTRINE OF ENGLAND CONCERNING NEUTRAL TRADE. February, 1806. 8vo., 76 pp. Top margin of the first title page has been clipped; with evidence of former bookplates removed from the front pastedown; the title page has a small stain as do the last few leaves. This remains a very good copy bound in full tree-calf with a red morocco label on spine, front hinge expertly repaired. The first title is attributed to James Stephen (Howes S-937); the second title has long been attributed to Gouverneur Morris (Sabin 50827) however, Howes M-825 states "More probably by Rufus King." On the title page of our copy, in the place usually allotted for the author's name is the pencil signature of Rich. Peters. When considering the authorship, compared to the other two to whom this work is often credited, Peters seems far more likely. From 1771-1776 he served as register of admiralty in Philadelphia. Commissioned a captain in the Pennsylvania militia in 1775, he served as secretary of the War Board of the Continental Congress from 1776 to 1781. He represented Pennsylvania in the Congress 1782-83; a member of the Pennsylvania Assembly from 1788 to 1790; from 1792 to 1828 he served as judge of the United States Court for Pennsylvania. He was regarded as a specialist in maritime law, having published ADMIRALTY DECISIONS IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES FOR THE PENNSYLVANIA DISTRICT 1780-1807.

        Complete String Quartets

      1806. First Edition . HAYDN, Joseph. Collection complette des Quatuors DÂ’Haydn. Paris: Pleyel, [1806]. Four volumes. Folio, contemporary half calf, marbled boards. $4500.Second collected (“Nouvelle”) edition of HaydnÂ’s complete string quartets, in handsome contemporary calf.Haydn won his first fame with his string quartets, and continued to return to the form throughout his life. By the end of his life he was regarded as the greatest composer in this medium. “Haydn achieved in his op. 33 quartets, written as he declared ‘in a new and special way,Â’ a clarity of structure and balance of texture of which he rarely lost sight in later worksÂ… In the late 1780s Haydn finally returned to quartet composition on a more regular basisÂ… The fine balance between unity and infinite variety is one of the most typical features of HaydnÂ’s late quartetsÂ… The two series of ‘TostÂ’ Quartets (opp. 54-5 and op. 64) carry the Classical quartet to a peak. They reveal a Haydn free of official restraints and obligations, composing simply con amoreÂ… In op. 76 a new experimentalism appears, with features anticipating Beethoven” (New Grove, 18: 278; 8: 355). Regarding PleyelÂ’s editions of the string quartets, Haydn wrote: “I am much obliged to you for the exceptionally beautiful edition of the QuartetsÂ… because of their beautiful engravings, the paper—and the fact that they are so correct—as well as their general appearance, you will be remembered for them forever” (Robbins Landon, 238). With engraved frontispiece portrait, title pages and fully engraved music text. Hirsch III, 274. ontemporary bookseller stamps.Occasional light foxing; a few small marginal tears and paper repairs.
