        Broadside. Begins, "To the Republican electors of the Western District. Fellow-citizens, At the same time that a bold and aspiring faction at the seat of government of the United States, is making the most daring and unprincipled attack upon the president and the friends of his administration, we find another faction actuated by the same motives, and impelled by the same spirit, commencing an attack upon the administration of this state.".

      New York state: no publisher/printer Folio (verticle chain lines; 41 cm, 16.5"). [1] f. (verso blank).. [1806?] A wall posting of the so-called "Lewisites" or "Quids," the faction of the Democratic-Republican party that supported Gov. Morgan Lewis of New York against the faction led by New York City Mayor DeWitt Clinton. It is a direct reply to a handbill circulated by "A Republican of 1776," who assailed the character of three candidates for State Senate in the Western District, Evans Wharry, Freegift Patchin, and Joseph Annin. Much of the text presents a defense of the incorporation of the Merchants' Bank. Printed in triple columns. Rare: We fail to trace any copies via OCLC; only one holding listed in Shaw & Shoemaker. As issued, with old folds, edges slightly irregular. Two tiny holes within text, at the point where two folds intersect, and costing only a portion of two letters. Fingernail-sized stain. Four words have been redacted by the previous owner in ink, but can still be easily read.

        Conversations on Chymistry, in which the Elements of that Science are Familiarly Explained and Illustrated by Experiments, and Plates - Two volumes in one

      Philadelphia: James Humphreys, 1806. First American Edition. Leather bound. Very Good. First American Edition. [4], xi, [1-blank], [13], 14-429, [1-blank], [1 - ads] pages plus 11 plates. 12mo (4 1/2 x 7 3/8). First American edition. Modern brown textured leather; dark blue spine label (new endpapers). Previous owner name at top of title page. First dozen leaves with dampstaining, turned corners. Marginal dampstaining towards the rear of the textblock. Title page browned. Paper lightly browned throughout with occasional foxing, most prominently on the plates and surrounding pages. Leather bound. "The First edition of one of the most popular introductory chemical textbooks ever written. Born in London of Swiss parents, Jane Marcet (nee Haldimand, 1769-1858) married Alexander John Gaspard Marcet in 1799. Although published anonymously, this work was quickly recognized to be by Mrs. Marcet. It is written in an easy dialogue style, in which Marcet ("Mrs. B") instructs two young ladies ... in the principles and discoveries of modern chemistry...Evidently printed in very small number, the first edition is rare. Most copies were handled by young people and were literally read to pieces." (Neville, referencing the 1806 London edition)." Michael Faraday as a young man working in a bindery happened upon Marcet's work and credited it with establishing his first foundations in chemistry. "So when I questioned Mrs. Marcet's book by such little experiments as I could find to perform, and found it true to the facts as I could understand them, I felt that I had got hold of an ancor in chemical knowledge and clung fast to it. Hence my deep veneration for Mrs. Marcet..." (Smith, Old Chemistries, pp. 68-69. quoting from a Faraday letter to de la Rive") This first American edition is in our experience nearly as scarce as the London edition. Edgar F. Smith, when he wrote his book on Old Chemistries (1927) wasn't able to find a copy. It is not found in the Neville Collection, nor in Cole, Duveen, or Bolton. Rink, E. Technical Americana, 660.

        The Works of Alexander Pope Esq in Verse and Prose. Containing the Principal Notes of Dr's Warburton and Warton: Illustrations, and Critical and Explanatory Remarks by Johnson, Wakefield, A. Chalmers, and Others. ____________________________ To Which are Added Now for the First Time Published Some Original Letters with Additional Observations, and Memoirs of the Life of the Author Ten Volumes Complete New Edition

      London: Printed for J Johnson J Nichols and Son et al. 1806 - Printed for J. Johnson, London New Edition . Ten Volumes. London 1806., 1806. Modern spines with contemporary polished tree calf boards, gilt letter labels between five raised bands to the spines, gilt decorations to the spine with a gilt volume number. 8vo 9½'' x 6''. Twenty two single-sided monochrome illustrations. Pope was a London born poet, satirist, and translator of Homer. Bowles laid down certain canons as to poetic imagery which, subject to some modification, were later accepted, but were received at the time with strong opposition by admirers of Pope and his style. The controversy brought into sharp contrast the opposing views of poetry, which may be roughly described as the artificial and the natural. Bowles maintained that images drawn from nature are poetically finer than those drawn from art; and that in the highest kinds of poetry the themes or passions handled should be of the general or elemental kind, and not the transient manners of any society. A handsome and scarce set. Condition Report Externally brand new spines with red morocco label nice gilt decoration to the spine with single red label full tree calf boards in good condition page edges marbled in good condition with some wear to the board edges joints good corners bumped Volume X is slightly cocked and leans to the right Internally some water stain marks (see photos) some spotting otherwise clean and tight hinges are good [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Autograph Letter to Carl Maria von Weber

      Used; Like New/Used; Like New. Autograph letter signed by the great Italian composer, regarded by Beethoven as the greatest of his contemporaries, to Carl Maria von Weber.  1 page, integral address leaf.  Berlin, 1806. Translated in part: "I had hope to come see you this morning as I had promised but I awoke somewhat too late, very tired. I went to find you at the Theatre where they told me you would be rehearsing.  Not having found you there, I am writing you to ask if you would give the honor of joining me for dinner this evening."<br><br>Both composers had evidently found themselves in Berlin at this time and were arranging to meet, either at the Theater itself, or at Cherubini's hotel ("l'hotel Matthieu").Cherubini was primarily in Vienna from 1805 - 1808, where his Faniska made such a success that it was deemed excessive praise to Beethoven's Fidelio to predict, as someone did, that one day it would "rank as high as Cherubini's Faniska."<br>In 1804, von Weber was appointed conductor at Breslau (now Wroclaw), and in 1806, he became musical director for Duke Eugen of Wurttemberg, gaining a reputation as an exceptional pianist. His personal life during this time remained irregular: he left his post in Breslau in a fit of frustration, was on one occasion arrested for debt and fraud, and was involved in a variety of scandals. However, he remained successful as a composer. <br><br><br><br>

        Adolphe, 1816, Edition Originale

      Treuttel, Wurtz, Colburn - Après l&#146;épopée des Cent-Jours et le triomphe des ultras, Benjamin Constant est contraint à l&#146;exil. Il se rend à Londres et décide de publier en même temps à Londres et à Paris cet ouvrage écrit à Genève en 1806, au milieu des orages de la passion tumultueuse de l&#146;auteur pour Germaine de Staël. On le considère cette oeuvrecomme le type même du roman d&#146;analyse psychologique. L&#146;auteur a publié cet ouvrage comme une « anecdote trouvée dans les papiers d&#146;un inconnu », pour montrer à quelles sombres tragédies peut conduire la sécheresse de c&#156;ur. Sous cette forme, qui lui permet de paraître détaché de ses propres passions d&#146;homme de son temps, ce partisan tenace des libertés constitutionnelles a pu confesser une désillusion amoureuse et défendre ses idées politiques avec une ferveur accrue . Trois éditions parurent à la même date : une appelée communément « édition de Londres », et deux éditions de Paris portant deux adresses différentes. « Toutes trois sont rares et très recherchées » écrit Clouzot. La première édition est celle de Colburn, en association avec Treuttel et Würtz à Paris, annoncée le 6 juin dans le &#145;Morning Chronicle&#146;. Elle est rarissime (trois exemplaires connus dans les bibliothèques publiques : la British Library, Harvard et la Taylorian Institution à Oxford). La B.n.F. ne la possède pas, mais elle a la première édition parisienne . Cette édition que je vends a été imprimée par Crapelet d&#146;après les épreuves de l&#146;édition anglaise. L&#146;éditeur français est placé avant son confrère londonien à l&#146;adresse et la mention d&#146;imprimeur est, bien entendu, différente. (Clouzot, 70-71 ; Carteret, I, 178-179 ; Talvart, III, 213 a; Rahir, Bibliothèque de l&#146;amateur, 377 ; Vicaire, II, 932). Reliure demi cuir d&#146; époque dans un état assez bon avec un dos lisse orné d&#146; une pièce de titre gravée à l&#146; or fin et des plats marbrés, intérieur en assez bon état, format in 12, 228 pages.

        Carta Esferica del paso de los Dardanelos del Mar de Marmara y del canal que conduce al Mar Negro [with large inset] Plano de la Ciudad de Constantinopla y canal del Mar Negro o Bosforo de Tracia

      1806 - Splendid Spanish-made chart of the Sea of Marmara, with a large plan of city of Constantinople. 1806. Madrid. F. Selma. 550 m x 895 mm. Minor traces of fraying to edges, else very good. As often with Spanish-made charts, this one is extremely rare; the map can be said is divided in two: the larger portion is dedicated to mapping the region of the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea, whilst the smaller one is dedicated to the city of Constantinople (Istanbul), the channel of the Black Sea or the Thracian Bosporus. As a navigational aid the chart is terrific, as it shows the depths by soundings, and names the harbors, towns, and fortifications along the coastline. The chart was commissioned by the famed Principe de la Paz Manuel Godoy y Alvarez de Faria (1767 &#150; 1851), Spanish nobleman and politician, given such title flowing the negotiation of Peace of Basel (1795), to the Spanish sailor and cartographer Dionisio Alcala, who can be considered one of the foremost cartographers and chart-makers of Spanish, having worked with Vicente Tofiño, Malaspina, and having been the first to chart Vancouver Island during the expedition in search of the Northwest Passage. One copy in the United States, at the University of South Carolina, one other copy located at the Biblioteca Nacional de España. According to OCLC. [Attributes: First Edition]

      - Paris, Auber, 1806. Prima edizione francese con incisioni dai dipinti originali di Carl Vernet. In folio, legatura originale in mz. Pelle verde, dorso in pelle marrone di marocchino a sette nervi con fregi e titolo in oro, piatti in tela azzurra, tagli in oro, occhietto, frontespizio, bel ritratto di Napoleone a p.p. che segue il front. (inciso da Simon), pp. X (contenenti l'introduzione e una bella scena allegorica con il trionfo di Napoleone), 138, 63, testo in lingua francese. Il volume è così composto: stemma al frontespizio, ritratto di Napoleone a cavallo, testata celebrativa, 25 tavv., ossia 23 tavv. di battaglie italiane (di cui l&#146;ultima è Marengo), 1 carta geografica dell&#146;Italia a doppia pagina (opera del geografo Lorrain, eseguita da Louvet e con legende incise da Dien), 1 tav. dell&#146;Egitto (con la carta dell&#146;Italia si conclude il "Tableaux Historiques" e segue il "Prècis Historique de l&#146;expedition d&#146;Égypte"; fra la carta dell&#146;Italia e i medaglioni con i ritratti che seguono questa ultima sezione e aprono la "Cérémonies du sacre." - che si conclude a p. 138 - si trova la tavola dell&#146;Egitto); la numerazione riparte da p. 1 con il "Précis Historique de la campagne d&#146;Allemagne" (l&#146;Appendice) e arriva fino alla p. 63 (qui, tra la p. 40 e la 41, non è riportata, come invece risulta esserci in altre copie della medesima edizione, la battaglia di Austerlitz, che manca non per lacuna ma in origine, poiché non contemplata neanche nell&#146;indice delle tavole). Edizione originale, in prima tiratura, delle incisioni di questa celebre opera che ebbe varie ristampe nel corso dell'800. La trattazione offre puntuali resoconti iconografici e descrittivi di ciascuna delle battaglie napoleoniche italiane, un "Précis historique de l'expedition d'Egypte"; un capitolo dedicato alle feste che ebbero luogo a Parigi per l'incoronazione degli Imperatori e, in fine, un "Précis historique sur la campagne d'Allemagne". Il volume, in edizione originale, è quindi una splendida raccolta di incisioni, accompagnate da lunghe relazioni, impresse con eleganti caratteri tipografici. L&#146;opera rappresenta una celebrazione di Napoleone e delle sue imprese, con i testi e le tavole che descrivono le campagne d&#146;Italia, d&#146;Egitto, di Germania e di Polonia, e con una relazione dell&#146;incoronazione di Napoleone imperatore e della sua consorte. I disegni preparatori per le tavole furono forniti dal pittore, disegnatore e incisore Carle Vernet, discendente di una celebre famiglia di artisti settecenteschi; la trasposizione dei disegni su lastra spetta a validi incisori transalpini, tra i quali L. J. Masquelier, Daudet, P.P. Choffard, Dambrun, Dupréel, J. Bosq; le 23 vedute della campagna d&#146;Italia, dall&#146;accurata topografia e ricche di figure, rappresentano le principali battaglie, nonché gli ingressi trionfali delle truppe francesi: tra le località rappresentate ci sono Millesimo, Mondovì, il Po&#146;, Lodi, Milano, Pavia, Livorno, Castiglione, Roveredo, San Giorgio, la Corsica, Arcole, Rivoli, la Favorita, il Tagliamento, Venezia, Mantova, Roma, Torino, Napoli, il valico del Monte San Bernardo, Montebello e Casteggio, Marengo; a seguire una bella carta geografica dell&#146;Italia a doppia pagina, opera del geografo Lorrain, eseguita da Louvet e con legende incise da Dien. Superficiale usura alla legatura, interno marginoso e fresco, nonostante minime tracce d&#146;ossidazione con macchiette di foxing ma soprattutto alla velina che protegge le tavole; per il resto esemplare completo e in buono stato di conservazione.

        The Works of Alexander Pope in Verse and Prose

      London -Â J. Johnson et al 1806 - A handsomely bound complete set of theÂWorks 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, includingÂThe Dunciad, Pastorals, Eloisa to Abelard, The Rape of the LockÂandÂEssay on Man. ÂThe 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 hereÂto Pope'sÂoperaÂincludes a biography, literary criticism and excerpts from his letters. Volume I features a frontispiece portrait of Pope. With the bookplate of one E. H. Greenly to pastedown. Direct from the Regency library of Elizabeth Greenly, later Lady Elizabeth Coffin Greenly. Elizabeth Greenly, born at Titley Court, Herefordshire, was a noted and varied collector. She kept prolific diaries from 1784 until her death in 1839 which included her responses to current events and occasions in her daily life. Among the diaries many names and anecdotes of celebrities of the time appear, including Lord Byron, Marie Antoniette, Mary Wollstonecraft and Hannah More. She was known to comment on customs of foreign countries to which she and her friends had travelled, and had a keen interest in scientific discoveries and advancements including medicine and archaeology. The Greenly library contents show Elizabeth Greenly's numerous interests including: Welsh causes, Science, topography, travel, Bibliana and literature, particularly female poets. The library contains many first editions of contemporary works, and many are signed or contain her bookplate. The library contained over 1000 volumes which show the diversity and depth of her interests and give an insight into the life of this fascinating collector. ÂThese works come directly from the sale of the Titley Court estate. Complete in 10 volumes. Condition: In calf binding with gilt detailing. Externally quite smart, there is wear to the extremties, boards, joints and backstrips, with some cracking to joints and minor strain to hinges. Internally, the pages are firmly bound and are generally bright and clean throughout, though the pages are somewhat age-toned. Overall: VERY GOOD [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
