MILLER, Philip and Thomas MARTYN
F.C. and J. Rivington, et al., London, 1807. Two volumes bound in four, folio, 15 engraved botanical plates, 5 engraved technical plates (depicting Pine Stove, Conservatory, Green House, Ice House and Vinery); a beautiful set finely bound in contemporary full marbled calf, spines elaborately gilt with floral emblems between raised bands, original terracotta and olive title-labels. An outstanding and handsome set of the South Seas edition of Miller's benchmark work of gardening and horticulture, the first to notice plants from Australia, New Zealand, and the Pacific, and based in large part on the collection of Sir Joseph Banks.Miller's work was the standard guide for over a century, and this 1807 edition, published almost forty years after the previous edition, was so substantially revised and updated by Thomas Martyn as to be effectively a new work. With its extensive notes on plants, agriculture, arboriculture, and wine making, this is 'a most valuable and practical work, probably used widely over nearly 100 years and the forerunner of later Gardening Dictionaries' (Sitwell & Blunt, Great Flower Books). The inclusion of a great number of Australian and Pacific plants marks this edition as a benchmark in the natural history of the region.Miller was one of the most influential horticulturalists of his generation. He had established a nursery of ornamental trees and shrubs in St George's Fields, Southwark, and when, in 1722, the Society of Apothecaries needed a new gardener for their Physic Garden at Chelsea, he was appointed. It was the beginning of an illustrious career wh … [Click Below for Full Description]

Garcia Conde, Diego
1807. Mexico. 9 sheets joined and laid on linen, as issued. Minor soiling and abrasions, expertly repaired. 2037 x 1544 mm.- Fine nine-sheet plan of Mexico City surveyed by Diego Garcia Conde and compiled by some of Mexico's most important engravers and artists. It waspublished in Mexico City in 1807. This is a rare first edition, of which very few examples survive. Brigadier General Diego Garcia Conde'sPlano General de la Ciudad de Méxicois generally regarded as one of the most important plans of Mexico City. It was reprinted in many editions across the Americas and Europe and served as the exemplar of plans of the city for much of the nineteenth century. The monumental nine-sheet map was surveyed by Conde, engraved by the renowned artist José Joaquín Fabregat and produced by a team of artists who led New Spain’s premier art institution, theReal Academia de Nobles Artes de San Carlos de Nueva España. The original map plates were destroyed and very few examples of the original survive. In addition to the present example, there are five known institutional collections, which include the first edition. The plan shows the entirety of the metropole in arresting detail. The city radiates from theZócalo, orPlaza de Palacioas it is written here. This square had been the city’s center since before the arrival of the Spanish, when the city was called Tenochtitlan and it was the capital of the Aztec Empire. Here, we can see the precise layouts of the Cathedral and Royal Palace, with its gardens, paths, and courtyards. Just to the west is … [Click Below for Full Description]

Adam, Alexander; [Habersham, Joseph]
Philadelphia: Mathew Carey, 1807. First American edition of Alexander Adam's Roman Antiquities, an influential reference guide to classical Roman history first published in Edinburgh in 1791. Adam includes chapters on Roman government, law, religion, family life, warfare, dress, agriculture, and architecture, among others, citing the relevant Latin classics for each of his historical claims. In his preface, Adam hopes that his sweeping compendium will demonstrate "on the one hand the pernicious effects of aristocratic domination; and on the other, the still more hurtful consequences of democratical licentiousness, and oligarchic tyranny." Pointing directly to Adam's political intent, Caroline Winterer notes that "classical history especially supplied Americans of the early republic with the cautionary tales central to classical republican political theory" (The Culture of Classicism, 19). This first American edition of Roman Antiquities belonged to one of the architects of the new republic, Joseph Habersham (1751-1815): colonel in the Continental Army, Georgia delegate to the Continental Congress, mayor of Savannah, postmaster general under George Washington, and president of the Savannah branch of the Bank of the United States. This copy was later owned by Edward Decker (1827-1911), Wisconsin postmaster and founder of the Ahnapee & Western Railway. A near-fine copy of an influential book, with excellent early American provenance. Octavo in fours, measuring 8.25 x 5 inches: xv, [1], 616.

NEUMAYR, Antonio (1772-1840
Padua: Seminario, 1807. First edition. Two parts in one volume, octavo (240 x 165 mm). 441 pages. Errata leaf at end. Contemporary Paduan red morocco, richly gilt, the arms of Padua at center of each side, a wide gilt floral border, spine gilt, black morocco lettering-piece, edges gilt. Dried and somewhat cracked, bottom spine compartment perished, internally a fine, crisp copy. Item #400522 A major source, often cited, of bio-bibliographical information on the most famous citizens of Padua, framed around an exegesis of the statues surrounding the Prato della Valle. The two parts of the book divide the exterior ring (containing 44 statues) from the interior ring (containing a further 44 statues and obelisks). The square became the property of the city of Padua in 1767, having formerly belonged to the monks of Santa Giustina. The plan to restructure the square was that of Andrea Memmo (depicted in the final statue of the exterior ring). Among the notable figures represented with a statue, and described in Neumayr's extensive biographical notes, are Popes Paul II, Eugene IV, Alexander VIII and Clement XIII. Of greatest importance are Neumayr's entries on pages 121-134 for Ludovico Ariosto; pages 153-172 for Petrarch; and pages 173-179 for Galileo. Lauro no. 680.

Just ask! 1807 1ed Ramsay Life of George Washington American Revolution Valley Forge RARE David Ramsay's 'Life of George Washington' is one of the standard early biographies on the first American president.

Ramsay covers Washington's early life, his military prowess, and political career. This biography is not only a work about the life of Washington but a detailed description of the Revolutionary War as a whole.

WILBERFORCE, William.
London: Printed by Luke Hansard & Sons, for T. Cadell and W. Davies, and J. Hatchard, 1807. Octavo (206 x 130 mm). Contemporary quarter calf, rebacked preserving the original spine, red morocco label, marbled sides. Bound without half-title, earlier sew-holes visible in gutter. Repaired tear to B3 not affecting text, 4 cm closed tear to M4 just impinging on text. A very good, clean copy. First edition, presentation copy inscribed "From the Author" on the title page in a secretarial hand, presumably to William Padwick, who has signed his name on the front free endpaper, dated 1 January 1808. Wilberforce's Letter, initially intended as a pamphlet but expanding into a book, marked the culmination of two decades of campaigning. Though nominally addressed to the electors in his Yorkshire constituency, the Letter was aimed both at the broader public and at the nation's parliamentarians as the struggle for the abolition of the slave trade reached its final stages. It was published on 31 January 1807 shortly after Baron Grenville introduced the Abolition Bill in the Lords, and was not without influence on the Bill passing the Lords in February, and the Commons in March, marking the end of the slave trade in the British Empire, even if slavery itself was not to be abolished until 1833.

Oblong Quarto, 41 x 29 cm. Hearne began his project, with Byrne, of recording the historic monuments of Britain in 1777, and the engraved plates began to be issued as early as 1778.

Giovanni Antonio RIZZI ZANNONI (1736 - 1814)
"Acquaforte e bulino, circa 1807, firmata in lastra. Bellissima prova, impressa su sei grandi fogli di carta vergata coeva, con sottili margini, lievi fori di tarlo, per il resto in ottimo stato di conservazione. Carta in sei fogli (380x510 ognuno) con orografia dimostrata a mezzo di tratteggio; il foglio n. 2 contiene il titolo, entro cartiglio architettonico con figure allegoriche in stile neoclassico, e la legenda dei segni convenzionali per i confini e per le strade. Sotto al titolo è scritto: ""Aless.o d'Anna inc., e del "" e "" Gius. Azzerboni inc."". Il foglio n. 5 reca due scale grafiche calcolate in miglia italiane e in leghe di Francia e, in basso a sinistra la firma "Vincenzo Aloja sculp."". Giuseppe Bonaparte fece eseguire, a partire dal 1807, una carta in scala ridotta che gli consentisse di sostituire la vecchia carta del 1769 ed anche la più recente, ma ancora grossolana, rappresentazione del Bacler d'Albe, eseguita durante la campagne napoleoniche in Italia. Nacque così "" la carta ridotta in sei fogli"", contemporanea all'atlante geografico in 31 fogli, rispetto al quale risulta più moderna e più vicina alla cartografia scientifica ottocentesca e contemporanea, sia nei contenuti che nelle espressioni grafiche. Gioacchino Murat lasciò la dedica del suo predecessore, ma i Borbone trasformarono il frontespizio al loro rientro sul trono di Napoli, dopo il 1815. Antonio Rizzi Zannoni fu astronomo e cartografo; ingegnere geografo nel Dépôt de la Marine a Parigi e direttore scientifico della commissione per la carta geografica del Regno di Napoli dal 1781, e diret … [Click Below for Full Description]

Giovanni Antonio RIZZI ZANNONI (1736 - 1814)
1807. Il Rizzi Zannoni è considerato come il più importante cartografo italiano dai tempi di Giovanni Antonio Magini. Attivo in Francia , a Padova e soprattutto a Napoli (1781/1814), dove, nel periodo borbonico, poté fregiarsi anche del titolo di "geografo del Re". Con la venuta dei francesi, Rizzi Zannoni continuò ad attendere alla realizzazione delle carte del Regno. Nel 1807, fu posto a capo del Deposito topografico, istituito da Giuseppe Bonaparte; nel 1812, sotto il regno di Gioacchino Murat, riuscì a stampare l'ultimo dei 31 fogli dell'atlante geografico, la cui pubblicazione era iniziata nel 1788. Le opere realizzate a Napoli, in oltre trenta anni di attività, lo consacrarono come il maggiore cartografo italiano dell'età moderna ed uno dei più accreditati in Europa. Molto decorativo il cartiglio. Incisione in rame, applicata su tela e racchiusa ad astuccio, in eccellente stato di conservazione. Incisa da Vincenzo Aloia. Rizzi Zannoni is considered the most important Italian cartographer since Giovanni Antonio Magini. He worked in France, Padua and above all in Naples (1781/1814), where he was so appointed "geographer of the King" by the Borbone, a role he kept also after the French arrival. In 1807 Giuseppe Bonaparte appointed him head of the Deposito topografico; in 1812, under Gioacchino Murat, he printed the last sheet, of 31, which were part of his geographic atlas, starter in 1788. The woks he realized in Naples along thirty years made him the greatest modern cartographer in Italy and one of the most influential in Europe. A very decorative cartouche.

Tasso, Torquato.
Nel Regal Palazzo, 1807. Luxurious Bodoni edition of the great Italian Renaissance epic, with the text edited by distinguished scholar Abbot Pier Antonio Serassi. Bodoni first printed folio and quarto editions of the Gerusalemme in 1794, having previously published Tasso's Aminta in 1789. Giani and other sources consider the present grand quarto edition worthwhile as both a useful text and a generally faithful reprinting; it hews very closely to the 1794 quarto design, though the original Roman stanza numerals are here replaced by Arabic. The work was printed in two volumes -- here bound as one -- on laid paper. Binding: Contemporary green textured calf, covers framed in gilt triple fillets with gilt-stamped corner fleurons, spine gilt extra with gilt-stamped leather author label. Board edges and turn-ins with gilt roll. => Textblock edges delightfully marbled in a bright, impressive, tour-de-force match to marbling of endpapers.

Piers, 6th Baronet of Tristernagh Abbey, was an Anglo-Irish baronet and a notable rake. His notoriety dates from his 1807 adultery trial involving Elizabeth Georgiana, Lady Cloncurry, the wife of an old school friend (and creditor), Lord Cloncurry. The trial established that Piers had seduced Lady Cloncurry as part of a bet. Lord Cloncurry was awarded the enormous sum of ?20,000 in damages, the largest award granted in a criminal conversation case. The scandal attracted a great deal of attention and secured Piers a footnote in history. This case was the subject of John Betjemin's poem Sir John Piers and a 1978 BBC documentary The Bold Bad Baronet. COPAC locates 1 copy (National Library of Scotland).
