The Lambs' prose adaptations (Charles did the tragedies, Mary the comedies) were written primarily for the benefit of girls, for, as they state in the Preface, "boys are generally permitted the use of their fathers' libraries at a much earlier age than girls are, they frequently have the best of Shakespear by heart, before their sisters are permitted to look into this manly book..'The result was, according to the Cambridge History of English Literature, "the first book which, appealing to a general audience and to a rising generation, made Shakespeare a familiar and popular author ...

        THE STRANGER IN AMERICA.

      London. 1807. - 22,499,[7]pp. plus engraved title, nine tinted plates, and a plan of Philadelphia. 20th-century three-quarter morocco and marbled boards, gilt, t.e.g. Corners bumped, extremities rubbed. A few leaves with some light, even toning, some offsetting from plates. Internally clean. Very good. Janson lived in America from 1793 to 1805 and did not like what he saw, or at least felt that the rise of Jeffersonian democracy was guided by the devil. Clark sums up the book well: "Janson draws a picture of unrelieved black, but one worthy of attention because of the length of his stay and the breadth of his interests. He covers an astonishing variety of subjects in a loose topical arrangement." "A petulant view of U.S. life" - Howes. In fact, the man's ill temper is quite amusing. He lived for some time in Rhode Island, where he failed in business, and travelled in the South, equally hating Virginia, South Carolina, and Georgia, where he was defrauded in the Yazoo land scheme. The handsomely produced book contains nine tinted plates depicting six scenes in Philadelphia, one of Mount Vernon, and one each in Boston and New York. The view on the engraved titlepage is the earliest known published image of the White House. Little known is the fact that the appendix to the book contains, on pages 482- 489, what appears to be the first British printing of Thomas Jefferson's December 1806 message announcing the completion of the Lewis and Clark expedition, as well as other western explorations. This should seem to qualify it for inclusion in Wagner-Camp, though it is not listed in that bibliography. HOWES J59. CLARK II:99. SABIN 35770.

      Orebro: Nils Magnus Lindh, 1807. Two volumes, duodecimo, a fine uncut set in original printed grey tinted wrappers with paper labels. Scarce Swedish edition of Turnbull's early trading account of New South Wales, Tahiti and the Tuamotu Islands.John Turnbull first travelled to New South Wales as a supercargo aboard the Margaret with his trading partner Captain John Buyers. Arriving in January 1801, Turnbull stayed in the colony for some time before departing on a whaler to Norfolk Island. Further trading ventures through Tahiti, Hawaii and the Pacific (including a disastrous wrecking at the Tuamotus) proved no lasting success, and by December 1803 both Turnbull and Buyers had returned to Port Jackson.Turnbull's book was the first serious account of commerce and trade originating from New South Wales, and was influential in promoting Australia as a venue for commercial success. It was widely disseminated throughout Europe; with French, German and Swedish editions published in rapid succession.

(Reliure de l'époque). _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Première édition du dernier ouvrage de Noverre. Il reprend ici une partie de ses "Lettres sur la danse" parues en 1760 et en ajoute plus d'une vingtaine qui exposent ses théories qui ont servies de bases à l'art chorégraphique du XIXe et du XXe siècle. Jean Georges Noverre (1727-1810) a été le grand réformateur du ballet classique au profit du ballet d'action. Les livres de Noverre sont "consultés par tous les écrivains anxieux de trouver des documents authentiques sur l'histoire de la danse. D'un autre côté, tous nos grands maîtres de ballets se sont inspirés des savants conseils que cet habile artiste a su leur prodiguer, en dévoilant la science théâtrale de la danse dans ses moindres détails comme dans ses plus grands effets".

The decorative plates depicting flowers, contain a large number of American origin. McDonald was actually a pseudonym for R. W. Dickson. Sydenham Edwards (1768-1819), one of the most famous of English botanical artists, was trained by William Curtis and became principal artist for the 'Botanical Magazine' until he resigned to found the 'Botanical Register'. His botanical output, especially the work done for the Botanical Magazine is considered among the best scientific illustrations of the day.

        Oriental Field Sports being a complete, detailed, and accurate description of the wild sports of the East and exhibiting, in a novel and interesting manner, the natural history of the elephant, the rhinoceros, the tiger . and other undomesticated animals .

      Edward Orme, London 1807 - (17 3/4 x 22 1/2 inches). Additional title produced in eight colours using stencils, letterpress title (verso blank), 1p. dedication to the King (verso blank), pp. [i]-ii preface, pp.1-146 text, pp.147-150 index, 1p. list of plates (verso blank). 40 fine hand-coloured aquatint plates by H. Mercke (37), J. Hamble (2) and Vivares (1), all from drawings by Howitt after designs by Williamson. (Minor creasing). Contemporary red morocco, covers elaborately panelled in gilt and blind, spine with semi-raised bands in six compartments, lettered in the second compartment, the other with a repeat overall decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers Provenance: Earl of Bradford, Weston Park (armorial bookplate) First edition, early issue of "the most beautiful book on Indian sport in existence" (Schwerdt) and one of the greatest English colour-plate books: this example in a remarkable contemporary English red morocco binding. Williamson served in a British regiment in Bengal and was an avid sportsman while there. After being recalled to England, "Williamson's knowledge of wild life and Oriental sports had come to the notice of the Orme family" (Rohatgi & Parlett). The Orme's contracted with celebrated painter Samuel Howitt to prepare finished watercolours based on Williamson's original sketches during his time in India, and published the work, originally in 20 parts, between 1805 and 1807. The result was "the most beautiful book on Indian sport in existence" (Schwerdt). The work, however, is not merely a sporting book. As Williamson writes in the Preface, the work "is offered to the public as depicting the Manners, Customs, Scenery, and Costume of a territory now intimately blended with the British Empire, and of such importance to its welfare, as to annex a certain degree of consequence to every publication, that either exhibits, or professes to impart, a knowledge of whatever may hitherto have been concealed, or that remains unfolded to our view." The plates, engraved by H. Merke or J. and Vivares Hamble, display the best of early 19th century colour aquatint. Howitt and Williamson's images are vivid depictions of both the chase and the Indian scenery. Of particular note are the four plates treating elephants, described by Williamson as possessing "the energy of the horse, the sagacity of the dog, and a large portion of the monkey's cunning." The eleven plates devoted to the tiger are each riveting. The work was published to great acclaim. An 1807 issue of The Monthly Review declared: "Much entertainment for the eye, and much information for the mind will be found in this very splendid volume." The Review continues by lamenting the high cost of the work: "Twenty guineas may be a trifle in Nabob's pocket: but Nabobs are not numerous in England; and we should suppose that the sale of such a work as this cannot be very widely diffused." This no doubt contributed to the work's present-day rarity. This copy is an early issue, with pre-publication watermarks and Tooley's first state of plate XXXI (with the plate captioned "Hunting Jackalls"). The early issues of the work, generally subscriber's copies, are bound from the original parts and contain "the finest impressions of the plates" (Tooley). Subsequent editions, i.e. the second edition of 1808 and the quarto edition of 1819, are considered by Tooley as "inferior."

This is Volume IV of a four-volume edition. Certainly from a de luxe limited edition but the number not stated in this volume. Printed in France by l'Imprimerie de Gillé. The original issue of this work (1789-92) consisted of 48 parts, each comprising four leaves of plates i.e 192. Chestnut full-leather binding, pebbled, with crisp gilt-stamped design to the front board and with crisp, gilt-stamped lettering and design to the spine. Reverse side of boards also in full leather, pebbled, of two colors, chestnut and deep green, and with elaborate gilt stamping, including inside dentelles. Elaborately hubbed spine, with title and place of publication. Gently bumped spine head, with minor chip [1/16 inch] at top edge. Spine tail gently bumped and rubbed. Lower corners lightly abraded, minor. Upper corners fairly sharp. Light chestnut brown moiré endpapers. All edges gilt. 20.5 x 13.5 inches. With unnumbered pages of text and plates. With 56 full pages of text commentary opposite 56 full pages of plates, as called for in the index [Tableau de 48 livraisons de la Galerie de Florence]. The original edition of Volume IV had 12 leaves of plates for a total of 48 full pages of plates. However, the 1807 edition was supplemented by two addition leaves [livraisons] for a total of 8 additional full page plates. Some plate pages illustrate two plates [the second usually a rendering in bas-relief], other plate pages illustrate one plate. All plates with tissue guards, most in pristine condition. Due to the presence of the tissue guards virtually no off-setting has occurred. Occasional foxing to the pages/plates, especially at the rear preliminaries. Else an exceptionally clean copy, and quite tight. No remainder marks. Very gently read. With a lovely ex libris bookplate from the library of Julio B. Samarcelli [1903-1988], a Los Angeles based artist. The bookplate in a distinctive art deco style and with a design reminiscent of the work of the artist Rockwell Kent. The bookplate is neatly affixed to the title page and does not obscure any of the lettering of that page. This is an absolutely gorgeous volume. A Very Good Plus copy.. First French Edition. Full-Leather. Very Good Plus. Illus. by Various. Elephant Folio - over 15" - 23" tall. Limited Edition.

        A rare early-19th century peepshow depicting the Battle of Eylau (where France acquired its taste for horse meat)

      A peepshow, housed in its original box (8.75" x 6.5" x .5") bearing six hand-colored engraved panels. Entitled NAPOLEON and the battle at Eylau fought the 9th February, 1807 / NAPOLEON, et la battaille à Eylau donnée le 9 Février 1807 printed upon a pair of French tricolor flags which flank a small 1.25" x .75" window at the center which, when the top of the box is extended fully (about 28"), reveals a beautifully rendered three-dimensional battle scene. Napoleon appears on horseback (at left) in the third panel from the top. Although the outer box bears a good deal of wear including soiling and toning, the interior is as remarkably clean and bright as they day it was manufactured. The Battle of Eylau was an enormous but inconclusive battle that took place between Napoleon's Grande Armée and the Russians in East Prussia. The two day battle involved over 150,000 soldiers and resulted in approximately 20,000-40,000 casualties between the two sides. Although the French won possession of the field at the end of the day, they had failed to destroy the Russian army. Riding over the fields the next morning, Marshal Ney remarked, "Quei massacre! Et sans Résultat" ("What a massacre! And without result!"). Incidentally, it was at the Battle of Eylau where the French acquired a taste for horse meat. Napoleon's surgeon-in-chief at the battle, Baron Dominique-Jean Larry, recommended dead battlefield horses to feed starving soldiers in the field.

        Rime

      Milan - The Italian Company of Classic Typography, 1807 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A complete set of Chiabrera's RhymesComplete in 3 volumesBound in quarter leather with marbled boards and gilt letteringNameplate belonging to Charles J. Bewlay of Carleton Hall to the front pastedown. Gabriello Chiabrera (1552 1638) was an Italian poet, sometimes called the Italian Pindar. As amaker of odes in all their elaborate pomp of strophe and antistrophe, master of new and complex rhythms, coiner of ambitious words and composite epithets, employer of audacious transpositions and inversions, and the inventor of a new system of poetic diction it is not surprising that Chiabrera should have been compared with Ronsard. Both were destined to suffer eclipse as great and sudden as had been their glory. Ronsard was succeeded by Malherbe and by French literature, properly so-called; Chiabrera was the last of the great Italians, and after him literature languished till the second renaissance under Manzoni. Chiabrera, however, was a man of merit, apart from that of the mere innovator. Setting aside his epics and dramas (one of the latter received the honours of translation at the hands of Nicolas Chrtien, a sort of scenic du Bartas), much of his work remains yet readable and pleasant. His grand Pindarics are dull, it is true, but some of his Canzonette, like the anacreontics of Ronsard, are exceedingly elegant and graceful. His autobiographical sketch is also extremely interesting. The simple old poet, with his adoration of Greek (when a thing pleased him greatly he was wont to talk of it as Greek Verse), his delight in journeys and sight-seeing, his dislike for literary talk save with intimates and equals, his vanities and vengeances, his pride in the memory of favours bestowed on him by popes and princes, his infinita maraviglia over Virgil's versification and metaphor, his fondness for masculine rhymes and blank verse, his quiet Christianity, is a figure deserving perhaps of more study than is likely to be bestowed on that new world of art which it was his glory to fancy his own, by discovery and by conquest. Condition: The binding are firm. There is some significantwear to the extremities including loss to the spine panels of Volumes 2 and 3, and the spine panel of Volume 1 is present but detached. There is also some bumping and rubbing. Internally the pages are bright and clean with only the odd spot, and some mild spotting to the first and last couple ofpages. Overall the condition of the books is good only due to the bindings..

        THE STRANGER IN AMERICA: CONTAINING OBSERVATIONS MADE DURING A LONG RESIDENCE IN THAT COUNTRY, ON THE GENIUS, MANNERS AND CUSTOMS OF THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES.

      London. 1807. - 22,499,[1]pp. plus engraved titlepage, nine colored plates, one plan, and 6pp. of advertisements. Quarto. Contemporary drab boards; rebacked, preserving portion of the original spine, corners renewed. Boards somewhat soiled and worn. Minor foxing and toning to text. Very good. The rare issue of this important work with the plates colored; almost all copies have the plates in sepia only. Janson lived in America from 1793 to 1805, beginning in Rhode Island (where he failed in business) before travelling in the American South, especially Virginia, the Carolinas, and Georgia, where he was defrauded in the Yazoo land scheme. He did not like what he saw, or at least felt that the rise of Jeffersonian democracy was guided by the devil. Clark sums up the book well: "Janson draws a picture of unrelieved black, but one worthy of attention because of the length of his stay and the breadth of his interests. He covers an astonishing variety of subjects in a loose topical arrangement." "A petulant view of U.S. life" - Howes. The handsomely produced book contains nine colored plates depicting six scenes in Philadelphia, one of Mount Vernon, and one each in Boston and New York. The view on the engraved titlepage is the earliest known published image of the White House and the Mt. Vernon plate one of the earliest of Washington's home. Copies with the plates fully colored are rare; it almost always is found with sepia plates. The appendix to the book contains, on pages 482-489, what appears to be the first British printing of Thomas Jefferson's December, 1806 message announcing the completion of the Lewis and Clark expedition, as well as other western explorations. This is unnoticed by bibliographers and should seem to qualify it for inclusion in Wagner-Camp, though it is not listed there. HOWES J59, "b." CLARK II:99. SABIN 35770. ABBEY 648.
