        A REPLY TO THE ESSAY ON POPULATION, BY THE REV. T.R. MALTHUS. In a Series of Letters. To which are added, Extracts from the Essay; with Notes.

      London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, Paternoster-Row. 1807 - First edition. 8vo. 5.25 x 8.5 inches. iv + 3-378 pp. [a]2 B-C7, D-D4, E-Z8, Aa-Bb8. Despite irregularities in pagination (lacks pp.1-2, 41-42) and in the register (C8 cancelled as usual), the text is complete and is identical to Keynes 4. Bound in contemporary half-calf with blind stamped decoration, gilt decorated spine slightly rubbed, green morocco labels, marbled boards, endpapers and edges. Some foxing and discolouration throughout. Philip Sassoon illustrated bookplate inside front paste-down and Port Lympne library label at foot of first blank. A copybook ink inscription, W Hazlitt 1807, at end of advertisement and smaller signatures, W. Hazlitt at end of letters I-III. These latter appear identical to that (using his earlier long z) in the Mary Evans Picture Library self-portrait and therefore are almost certainly the author's actual signature. The first three of the letters appeared originally in Cobbett's Weekly Political Register, 14 March and 16 and 23 May 1807, Cobbett being a friend of Hazlitt. The other two letters and the 'Extracts from the essay on population. With a commentary, and notes.' were added specifically for the book. The author's name does not appear on the title page but he has signed it several times in the text. William Hazlitt, painter, journalist and essayist (1778-1830) was born in Maidstone, the son of a Unitarian minister. His view of the natural disinteredness of the human mind led him to assert his own optimistic view of human nature in contrast to the pessimism of Malthus, whose theory was based on self-interet, which he abhorred. Robert Malthus, the famed political economist (1766-1834) was an ordained minister of the church and professor of history and political economy at the East India College. He published the first edition of his most famous work, 'An Essay on the Principle of Population' in 1798 and the second expanded edition, to which Hazlitt is replying, in 1805. He argued that the growth of population would always outstrip the expansion of the food supply, for while population increased in a geometrical ratio, subsistence would only increase in an arithmetical ratio. Various natural checks such as war, famine and pestilence served to hold back the exponential rise in population but man also resorted to other means, such as prostitution (i.e. non-reproductive sexual activity) and contraception and the practise of 'moral restraint,' including delayed marriage, between the sexes. Hazlitt takes issue with the representation by Malthus of 'vice and misery as the necessary consequences of an abstract principle, of a fundamental law of our nature' and puts forward his own view that the current 'decay of manners' may be put down to 'Great towns, great schools, dress, and novels.' He expands on the last two at some length, quoting the example of a hypothetical country girl who goes up to town as milliner's apprentice, and sits up half the night reading lurid novels, making her fall easy prey to 'the first coxcomb of real flesh and blood, who.accosts her in the shape of a lover.' Turning to the subject of female clothing Hazlitt states: 'I would ordain that no woman should express her shape publicly, unless she were a prostitute.' He professes his indignation with the prevailing fashion for loose clinging gowns, protesting in some detail about the sights thereby revealed to the onlooker in contrast to their mothers and grandmothers 'who almost blushed at their own shadows.' (Q4-Q6v). Hazlitt's impassioned attack on Malthus proved ineffective and in 1819, he referred to these early essays, 'the style of which is, I confess, a little exuberant,' (quoted in Keynes, p.9). The work of Malthus, however, produced an immediate and lasting impact, leading to the taking of the first national census in 1801 and influencing writers and thinkers such as Darwin. The concept of a Malthusian crisis was influential in the twentieth century in popular culture, inspiring a new environmentalism, exemplified

A romantic novel from French author Anne Louise Germaine de Stael-Holstein, or Madame de Stael, as she is better known. In French.

Madame de Stael spent nearly a year writing Corinne; in 1806 she broke the decree of exile and lived for a time undisturbed near Paris. In 1807 Corinne, the first aesthetic romance not written in German, appeared. It is in fact, what it was described as being at the time of its appearance, a picaresque tour couched in the form of a novel. The famous quote Tout comprendre rend trs-indulgent, commonly translated as To know all is to forgive all, is found in Corinne, Book 18, chapter 5. Complete in three volumes.

        The Poems of Ossian

      nbsp;London -Cadell and Davies, 1807. nbsp;London -Cadell and Davies, 1807 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Ossian purports to be a translation of an epic cycle of Scottish poems from the early dark ages. Ossian, a blind bard, sings of the life and battles of Fingal, a Scotch warrior. Themes, characters and passages of Ossian are based on established Celtic and Scottish folklore. A new editionJames Macpherson claimed that Ossian was based on an ancient Gaelic manuscript. There was just one problem. The existence of this manuscript was never established. Authenticity of the work was widely contested, particularly by Samuel Johnson. A huge (and probably excessive) backlash ensued, and conventional wisdom today brands Ossian as one of the great forgeries of history. Macpherson is today considered the author of this work. Condition: In a half calf binding with marbled boards. Externally, loss to the back strip, wear to extremities, with some marks to boards andcracking to the joints and the front hinge is starting. Internally, firmly bound with the odd sport throughout. There is also a bookplate to the front pastedown reading Isabel Douglas. Overall: VERYGOOD.

Carey came from a middle-class family and was born in Dublin in 1760. He entered the bookselling and printing business in 1775, and when still only seventeen published a pamphlet criticizing dueling. This publication was quickly followed by another work criticizing the severity of the Irish penal code and as a result the authorities threatened him with prosecution. As a result of these threats he moved to Paris in 1781. There he met Benjamin Franklin, working at the time as American revolutionary ambassador to France, who took him on to work in his printing office. Carey printed the first American version of the Douay-Rheims Bible, popularly known as the Carey Bible, from 1789 which was the first Roman Catholic version of the Bible printed in the United States.

        The History of England

      London - C. and R. Baldwin, 1807. London - C. and R. Baldwin, 1807 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A complete set of Smollett's A History of England in Five Volumes, spanning from the reign of William and Mary in 1689 to the death of George II in 1760. Engraved frontispiece of the author with tissue guard in Volume I. Armorial bookplate to front pastedown of each volume, bearing the name 'William Phillips. The works were originally designed as a continuation of the work of David Hume, an eminent historian of the eighteenth century. Hume's works ended with the deposition of the CatholicJames II in favour of his Protestant sister Mary, and her Dutch husband William of Orange. In fourteen months from 1755 to 1757 Smollett wrote his four-volume Complete History of England, having instructed his servant to deny me to all those with whom I had no express business (Letters, 46). Revised in 1758, the Complete History was offered for sale in 100 sixpenny weekly pamphlets, and by 28 September 1758 he noted with satisfaction that weekly sales exceeded 10,000 copies (ibid. , 73), realizing 500 for the author. Hume wrote to Andrew Millar, bookseller, of this extraordinary run upon Dr. Smollett (Hume, Letters, 1. 273), and he jocularly reproved William Robertson for replacing him near the historical summit of Parnassus, immediately under Dr. Smollett (ibid. , 1. 302). The success of Smollett's History may be explained by reference to his statement of intent in his prefatory Plan: his approach is factual, not theoretical or philosophical; he will eschew conjecture and national, religious, and political partiality; he will consult only the most legitimate of sources; and his style will make his material accessible. Inevitably there were dissonant voices, and Smollett was accused of being Jacobite and papist, most notably by Thomas Comber. Whig policy towards Scotland, and what he perceived as the corruption of Walpole's administration, had weakened his enthusiasm for the party to which his family was traditionally loyal. Surprised to hear of Glaswegian approval, he predicted the last volume will be severely censured by the west country whigs of Scotland, but he reiterated I have, as far as in me lay, adhered to Truth without espousing any faction (Letters, 65). In 1758 he took charge of the production of a Universal History and contributed the sections on France, Italy, and Germany. DNBCondition: In marbled calf bindings with decorative gilt detailing. Externally rubben. Spine labels missing. Internally, tight and firmly bound. Pages generally very bright and clean, withspotting to the first and last few pages. Overall: GOOD..

        TRAVELS THROUGH THE CANADAS, CONTAINING A DESCRIPTION OF THE PICTURESQUE SCENERY ON SOME OF THE RIVERS AND LAKES.

Antique-style three-quarter calf and marbled boards, gilt leather label. Occasional offsetting from plates, as usual; some light tanning, titlepage discolored, else text generally quite clean. One plate with small closed tear. Very good. Heriot travelled a good deal through Canada from 1800 to 1816 as deputy postmaster general of British North America. He recorded his travels in illustration as well as text, as represented by the fine plates in the present work, and was considered one of the finest watercolorists of his day. The plates depict the Azores and include three views of Quebec; one each of St. Paul's Bay, Jeune Lorete, the Ruins of Chateau Richer, River Etchemin, and Lake St. Charles; two views each of Niagara Falls, the St. Lawrence, the Fall of Montmorenci, and the Fall of La Puce; one each of Fort Niagara, Montreal, Grand Chaudiere on the Outaouais River, and the Bridge on the Jacques Cartier; and illustrations of Indian costume, an Indian encampment, and two of French Canadian dancing. The text offers a fine contemporary account of the Loyalist settlements in Canada and contains important material on the cod fisheries, fur trade, and native Indians, with a printing of Father Rasle's vocabulary of the Algonquian language. "Illustrated books on North America are curiously few in the period with which we deal. By far the most interesting is Heriot's TRAVELS THROUGH THE CANADAS." - Prideaux. HILL 801. DIONNE II:934.

There has been no adverse effect to the content which is firmly held in the binding, no loose or missing pages, and the leather spines are still attached. A previous owner has attempted to reattach the boards by use of wide bands of paper tape, clearly this has not lasted and there is damage to the leather of the boards and spine from areas where the tape has come away or pulled. The pages of content are deeply toned to the exterior with some flecks of light foxing here and there throughout the pages. This set is being sold in the knowledge that it can be rebound as an investment or to increase its value for resale. . Very Good. 1807.

        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.. London. 1807.. 21,499,[1]pp. plus engraved titlepage, nine colored plates and one plan, and 18pp. of ads. Quarto. Contemporary drab boards, new paper label. Wear to corners and board edges. Some light toning; light foxing and soiling. Very good internally. Untrimmed. 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 TRAVEL 648.

        MEMOIRS OF THE LITTLE MAN AND THE LITTLE MAID: with some interesting particulars of their lives. Never before published.

      [ii], 12, [2 ad's ]pages. Illustrated with 12 hand-coloured plates dated March 1 1807. Original brown stiff paper wrappers. Upper cover text reads 'Authentic memoirs of the little man and the little maid: with some interesting particulars of their lives. Illustrated with beautiful engravings. London?1807'. Lower cover has a picture of Tabart's shop. 13.1x12.1cms. Some foxing; some staining to wrappers; spine restored; slight wear to corners; some occasional light water-staining; short marginal tear to one leaf; name and address on title [M. J. Gandy, Chesterton Rectory]; else a very good copy. An unrecorded variant of Moon 109. It is our belief that this copy could pre-date Moon 109(1) and be the first issue for the following reasons. In Moon 109(1) plate VI is misnumbered IV and Moon states that this was not corrected in later printings; in this copy plate VI is correctly numbered. In 109(1) the illustrated plates are dated May 1807 and Moon suggests they are re-drawn, improved illustrations commissioned before publication of the book; plates dated March being used only for an 'emergency edition'. Moon records May 1807 plates printed on paper watermarked 1805 but this does not necessarily indicate precedence. This copy is printed on paper dated 1805 and1806, predating still the date of publication. In appendix D, page 171, Moon states the issue conclusions are drawn from 'rather opaque analysis' which may be questioned on location of other copies.
