        The Plays of William Shakespeare

      London - John Stockdale 1807 - A very scarce edition of The Plays of William Shakespeare from the Corrected Text of Samuel Johnson and George Steevens. Embellished with twenty two plates. [collated, complete]In six volumes complete. The Plays of William Shakespeare was an 18th-century edition of the dramatic works of William Shakespeare, edited by Samuel Johnson and George Steevens. Johnson announced his intention to edit Shakespeare's plays in his Miscellaneous Observations on Macbeth (1745), and a full Proposal for the edition was published in 1756. The edition was finally published in 1765. In the 'Preface' to his edition, Johnson justifies trying to determine the original language of the Shakespearean plays. To benefit the reading audience, he added explanatory notes to various passages. Later editors followed Johnson's lead and sought to determine an authoritative text of Shakespeare. Volume I contains: A Midsummer Night's Dream,The Taming of the Shrew, TheMerry Wives of Windsor,Much ado About Nothing, All's Well that Ends Well, and Measure for Measure. With an engravedplate to frontispiece and three further plates to front section. Volume II contains: A Winter's tale. Two gentlemen of Verona. Hamlet. Romeo and Juliet. Richard II. Richard III. With an engravedplate to frontispiece and three further plates to front section. Volume III contains:AComedy of Errors, Macbeth, Henry VI, Pt I-III. , and As You Like It. With an engravedplate to frontispiece and three further plates to front section. Volume IV contains:The Tempest, Twelfth Night, Henry VIII, Julius Caesar, Timon of Athens, andCoriolanus. With an engravedplate to frontispiece and three further plates to front section. Volume V contains: Love's labour's Lost, King John, King Lear, Troilus and Cresida, Titus Andronicus, andOthello. With an engravedplate to frontispiece and three further plates to front section. Volume VI contains:The Merchant of Venice, Henry IV, Pt. I-II. , Henry V, Antony and Cleopatra, Cymbeline,andPericles. With an engravedplate to frontispiece and one further plate to front section. Samuel Johnson (1709 - 1784), often referred to as Dr Johnson, was an English writer who made lasting contributions to English literature as a poet, essayist, moralist, literary critic, biographer, editor and lexicographer. George Steevens (1736 - 1800) was an English Shakespearean commentator. Previous owner's copperplate ink inscription to front blank to volume one, dated 1840. Condition: In half calf bindings with marbled paper covered boards. Externally, worn to extremities, with rubbing and occasional marks to boards.

        Flores celestes colhidas entre os espinhos da sagrada coroa da augusta, veneravel, e soberana cabeça do divino, e immortal rei dos seculos, Jesu Christo ? tecidas em cinco ramalhetes ?.

      Lisbon, Na Of. de Simão Thaddeo Ferreira, 1807. - 243 pp. 8°, contemporary speckled calf (considerable wear but sound). Some scattered light soiling and stains; very slight marginal worming to a few leaves, without loss. Overall good to very good. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this rare work by a native of Bahia and with poems about Bahia. On pp. 179-85 are several poems on a convent in Bahia that was destroyed by fire in 1788: "Ao Sagrado Templo da Veneravel Esclarecida Ordem Terceira de Nossa Senhora do Monte do Carmo da Cidade da Bahia, deplorado pelo incendio de sexta feira Santa, depois da meia noite antecedente, a 21 de março de 1788." Although the title-page states that the work is divided into five @ramalhetes, the work begins (as Rodrigues points out) with the second. No bibliographer records any edition other than this, that might have included all five @ramalhetes.Nothing is known of the author except that he was a native of Bahia. Borba de Moraes notes that an 1812 advertisement by the Bahia printer Silva Serva mentions another work by Cortez Solposto, @Affectos do amor divino de hum peccador convertido a Jesus. No bibliography cites that work, and it is not in Berbert de Castro's comprehensive bibliography of Silva Serva's publications.---- Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 819; @Período colonial p. 373.

      Edinburgh: [for the author,] Murray & Cochrane, printers, [c.1807] - 5 pamphlets in one quarto volume (288 × 230 mm), pp. iv, 179; 11; [ii], 32; 23; [ii], 10. Original boards, rebacked in calf. Two modern collector's bookplates to the front pastedown, some browning, occasional marginal staining, externally rubbed and stained, lower joint cracked but holding, hinges reinforced with linen, but overall very good copy . Small hand-drawn illustration to the text. Extremely uncommon collection of the clear- and far-sighted memoranda on naval discipline of a long-serving sailor described by Lord Keith as this "deep-thinking and hard-fighting officer." This copy inscribed on the front pastedown, "From Patton to Mr. Ferg[uson?]", the conclusion of the inscription erased. A scattering of the individual papers and earlier compilations can be found institutionally, but we find no record of the present version, apparently the latest and most complete iteration of these papers, issued around 1807-08. The dating of the constituent essays is confused by the lack of formal title pages giving firm dates of publication, and by the presence of dates in the prefatory material or titles of three of the pieces. Oddly the National Library of Scotland have speculatively dated the two items that they have, the first- and third-named here, to 1818, three years after Patton's death. However, from internal evidence in this copy it seems that Patton re-issued his papers periodically, adding new material to those already published. This seems to have been at least partly a ploy to emphasize his prescience: an earlier form of his collected papers, listed on COPAC, is titled at the head of the preface, "Intimations: To those who may read the following Observations on Naval Affairs, it is earnestly recommended to attend to the Dates of the Papers". Patton undoubtedly felt he had good reason to draw attention to his foresight in naval matters. He joined the navy in 1755 at the age of 16, having already spent some years in the merchant service - his uncle was one of the largest ship-owners in Scotland - voyaging to the Mediterranean and Baltic. His early patron was Admiral Boscawen. Patton was with him at Louisbourg and the defeat of La Clue in 1759. Later on Namur he was at Quiberon Bay and the taking of Havana. On 3 July 1763 he was promoted lieutenant of the bomb-vessel Grenada, in which he returned to England that summer. In 1776 he came under the patronage of Sir Charles Middleton, later Lord Barham, joining him on the Prince George and following him to the Royal Oak. Middleton's interest was to have a great influence on Patton's later career. In the next six years he was highly active, taking part in Rodney's defeat of Langara in 1780, the action of Dogger Bank in 1781 and the pursuit and capture of "the troublesome Dunkirk privateer, the Calonne commanded by the notorious Luke Ryan" (ODNB). But perhaps his most formative experience was his quelling of the mutiny on the Prince George in 1779, where his firm hand with one of the ring-leaders reduced the men to obedience. Paid off in 1782, Patton was to spend the next ten years unemployed, but actively working on a practical signal book, in which he was encouraged by Middleton, now comptroller of the navy. Unfortunately Admiral Howe's system of signalling carried far more influence and Patton was disappointed. On the outbreak of war with France he pressed Chatham for the 74-gun ship he felt commensurate with his experience. However it was to be a year before Middleton obtained for him a position as one of the commissioners of the transport board. "Here Patton was undoubtedly useful; his experience and his reflective but practical nature were what such a newly created office needed." It was early in the 1790s that his fear of an impending general mutiny prompted him to begin working on the memoranda developed and published in the present volume. "In 1790 Patton drew up fifty pages of observations on naval affairs, concerned with the conditions, pay, and promotion of seamen a

      G. Brookshaw, [London] 1807 - A fine image from Brookshaw's masterpiece: 'Pomona Britannica; or, A Collection of the Most Esteemed Fruits'. George Brookshaw's 'Pomona Britannica' is the finest work on fruit and flowers ever produced. Its breathtaking images display a level of technical virtuosity and beauty that distinguish this magnificent work as a true work of art. As a retired cabinetmaker, Brookshaw produced his seminal botanical study late in his career, at first publishing it in parts and then as a complete edition in 1812. The fact that this outstanding work took ten years to complete is evident in the quality of its images and the care with which Brookshaw executed each individual picture. 'Pomona Britannica' was produced as a visual record of the best available varieties of fruit in an attempt to encourage gardeners to experiment with growing fruit, and illustrates examples found in the Royal gardens at Hampton Court, Kensington Gardens, and the private gardens of the Prince of Wales in Blackheath. 'Pomona Britannica' differs from other botanical works in its dark aquatinted backgrounds and its stylized compositions. By using aquatint to create a contrasting background, Brookshaw manages to produce a truly dramatic effect. His use of stylized composition distinguishes his pictures from the dry scientific illustrations found in other botanical studies and creates an exceptionally beautiful visual experience. 'Pomona Britannica' is not only a didactic study, it is a masterpiece of illustration in which every picture is a testament to the artist's talent and ingenuity. Cf. Dunthorne 50; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p.81; cf. Nissen BBI 244; cf. Sandra Raphael Oak Spring Pomona 40a. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In good condition.

        The Holinshed Chronicles of England, Scotland and Ireland in six volumes, Grafton's Chronicles in two volumes and Monstrelet's Chronicles in five volumes

      - London -J.Johnson, F. C. and J. Rivington et al 1807 - Three scarce complete sets of early nineteenth-century publications of influentialMedieval and Early-ModernEra chronicles, uniformly and finelybound. Holinshed's Chronicles, also known as Holinsheds Chronicles of England, Scotland, and Ireland, is a collaborative work published in several volumes and two editions, the first in 1577, and the second in 1587. In 1548 Reginald Wolfe, a London printer, conceived the idea of creating a Universal Cosmography of the whole world, and there with also certain particular histories of every known nation. He wanted the work to be printed in English and he wanted maps and illustrations in the book as well. Wolfe acquired many of John Leland's works and with these he constructed chronologies and drew maps that were up to date. When Wolfe realised he could not complete this project on his own, he hired Raphael Holinshed and William Harrison to assist him. Wolfe died with the work still uncompleted in 1573, and the project, changed to a work about just the British Isles, was run by a consortium of three members of the London stationers. They kept Raphael Holinshed who employed William Harrison, Richard Stanyhurst, Edmund Campion and John Hooker. In 1577 the work was published in two volumes after some censorship by the Privy Council of some of Stanyhurst's contribution on Ireland. Shakespeare used the revised second edition of the Chronicles (published in 1587) as the source for most of his history plays, the plot of Macbeth, and for portions of King Lear and Cymbeline. Richard Grafton (c. 15111572), was King's Printer under Henry VIII and Edward VI. He was a member of the Grocers' Company and MP for Coventry elected 1562-63. On the accession of Edward VI, Grafton was appointed King's Printer and this gave him the sole right to print all Acts and Statutes. He had held the appointment for six years, when on the King's death, he printed a proclamation of the accession of Lady Jane Grey, in which he signed himself Printer to the Queen. For this he was cast into prison by Mary I. John Cawood became Queen's Printer, and Grafton's career as a printer ended. In prison Grafton compiled an Abridgement of the Chronicles of England, which he published in 1563. To this he added in 1568 A Chronicle at Large. Enguerrand de Monstrelet (c. 1400 20 July 1453), French chronicler, belonged to a noble family of Picardy. In 1436 and later he held the office of lieutenant of the gavenier (i. e. receiver of the gave, a kind of church rate) at Cambrai, and he seems to have made this city his usual place of residence. He was for some time bailiff of the cathedral chapter and then provost of Cambrai. Little else is known about Monstrelet except that he was present, not at the capture of Joan of Arc, but at her subsequent interview with Philip the Good, duke of Burgundy. Continuing the work of Froissart, Monstrelet wrote a Chronique, which extends to two books and covers the period between 1400 and 1444, when, according to another chronicler, Mathieu d'Escouchy, he ceased to write. Monstrelet's own writings, dealing with the latter part of the Hundred Years' War, are valuable because they contain a large number of documents which are certainly, and reported speeches which are probably, authentic. This publication of Monstrelet's chronicles are the first English translation, translated by Thomas Johnes. 'Containing an account of the cruel civil wars between the houses of Orleans and Burgundy; of the possession of Paris and Normany by the English, their explusion thense, and of other memorable events that happened in the Kindom of France as well as in other countries. A history of fair example and of great profit to the French, beginning at the year MCCCC where that of Sir John Froissart finishes, and ending at the year MCCCCLXVII and continued by others to the year MDXVI'. Holinshed contains facsimiles of the original 1586 titles and a handwritten 'list of Kings of Scotland from Holinshed's History' loosely inserted. Graf [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Archibald Cochrane, R.N. Fourth Edition of a classic in British Caribbean literature. Edwards lived in Jamaica with his uncle for a number of years and inherited the latter's estate. He is also said to have been left heir in 1773 to the substantial property of a Mr. Hume of Jamaica. Returning permanently to England in 1792 he became a highly successful West Indian merchant, founder of a bank, and a member of Parliament. In his account of the British West Indies Edwards argued for unrestricted trade with America and the freeing of West Indian produce from hampering British import duties, and for the continuance of the slave trade with certain restrictions. The present edition also incorporates Edwards' An Historical Survey of the French Colony in the Island of St. Domingo, together with an Account of the Maroon Negroes in Jamaica, and a History of the War in the West Indies, an autobiographical sketch, and Sir William Young's Tour Through Barbadoes, St. Vincent, Antigua, Tobago, and Grenada, in the Years 1791 and 1792. These were first added to the edition of 1801. Edwards' condemnation of the treatment of the negroes by the French inhabitants in St. Domingo, as well as his stance in favour of restricted continuance of the slave trade aroused some adverse criticism, but on the whole his work was deservedly popular and highly praised. While Ratgatz notes that some of Edwards' statistics are now known to be inaccurate, he also deems his discussion of the slave trade to be "of immeasurable value for contemporary conditions, showing the state of affairs after the American war and before the abolition of the traffic in blacks".

        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 - Early half maroon straight-grained morocco over pebbled cloth boards, spine in seven compartments with semi-raised bands, decorative roll tools in gilt on each band, lettered direct in the second and fourth compartments First edition of the finest book ever published on Indian sport and one of the great colour-plate books of the period. 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 publications, 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."

        La Gerusalemme Liberata.

      Pisa: dalla tipografia della Società Letteraria, 1807 - 2 volumes, folio (400 × 260 mm) gathered and signed in fours. Contemporary straight-grained red morocco by L. Staggemeier (with his orange label), sides with wide gilt and blind decorative border, spine divided into six panels by double false bands, lettered in two panels, the others with a large gilt centre tool, dentelles and morocco inside hinges, green endpapers, gilt edges. A little rubbing to extremities, lower joint of vol. II slightly darkened, overall very good. Engraved portrait frontispiece by Raffaello Merghen. A splendid edition in large paper format of Tasso's La Gerusalemme liberata (first published 1580), here in an imposing pair of Staggemeier bindings. "Of this edition, superintended by [Giovanni] Rosini, only 250 copies were struck off, and one on vellum" (Ebert, General Bibliographical Dictionary). The lavishness of the format is here matched by the binding, produced by one of the many German émigré binders working in the London book trade. L. Staggemeier of Osnabruck had started in partnership with Samuel Welcher, also a native of Germany, by at least 1799. They seem to have separated into separate businesses in adjoining buildings in Villiers Street, Strand, about 1810, and they disappear from the directories by 1820. In their heyday they were among the most prolific workshops in London producing "extra" quality work, and they worked extensively for James Edwards, the Pall Mall bookseller.

        The History of the Anglo-Saxons. Second edition, corrected and enlarged

      London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, Paternoster Row. 1807. 2 vols. in one, 4to, pp. x, 499; vii, [1], 472, [8]; large hand-colored folding map in volume I; contemporary calf rebacked, marbled edges, very good. Second and best edition of the first part of Turner's History of England from the Earliest Times to the Death of Elizabeth, originally published in four volumes 1799-1805. Ã’Turner was the first to write a history of England using original source material from Anglo-Saxon manuscripts, and the first to make use of dictionaries, catalogues and grammars that had been compiled earlier in the 18th century. His work first occupied a great field. He not only felt an enthusiasm for the subject, but he had a genuine power of presentation and, in addition to the respect of such scholars as Hallam and Southey, he won the abiding interest of Scott, and later of Tennyson" (DNB). The folding map is colored and shows the territory of the ancient Saxons north of the Elbe.
