        The Costume of Hindostan Elucidated by Sixty Coloured Engravings; with Descriptions in English and French, taken in the years 1798 and 1799.

      Edward Orme,, London 1807 - Small Folio, (365 x 264 mm), [8], English & French text, viii, dedication leaves and interleaved explanatory text to each plate in both English and French, 60 hand-coloured line, or stipple-engraved, or etched plates by Scott or T. Vivares after Solvyns, contemporary hard-grained dark green morocco, slightly rubbed with some scuffing to boards, gilt-stamped and lettered spine, with foliate border in gilt to boards, gilt edges, marbled endpapers, occasional spotting and offsetting to text, endpapers lightly soiled, two bookplates of F. W. Kingsford & Hugh Sadler tipped to front pastedown. A beautiful copy, published by Edward Orme, printed by J, Hayes. Copy in good condition. Frans-Balthasar Solvyns was a Flemish painter, illustrator, and ethnographer. He was known for his series of etchings of the people of India, including their activities, festivals, and cultural life. First published in parts with an undated title page, and followed by editions in 1804 and 1807; however, the popularity of the work ensured that it stayed in print for many years after these dates. It was based on Solvyn's earlier work containing 250 plates titled: "The Manners, Customs and Dresses of the Hindoos", published in Calcutta in 1799. This work was a financial failure largely due to the images being poorly executed by European standards. The eminent Orientalist Sir William Jones, was enthusiastic and supporter to Solvyns’ work, he pursued his aim of issuing a work that did justice to the subject. In 1803, he prepared an enlarged text, in both French and English (translated by his wife Mary Anne Greenwood). Orme made water-colour copies, after Solvyn’s original drawings, for use by the engraver. ‘ These copies are much better drawn than Solvyn’s original, and the stipple engravings are corresponding an improvement on Solvyn’s etchings’.

      London: Richard Phillips, 1807. Undetermined. near fine. 1st Edition. xii,602,(2). pp.pp. Quarto (29.5 X 23.7 cm.) Bound in Modern full morocco. Spine ruled in 6 compartments. Hand sewn head caps. Gilt inner dentelles. Matching marbled green endpapers. All edged untrimmed. Folding hand coloured panorama frontispiece. 26 plates all delicately handcoloured (6 folding).

Morgan p. 184. Pilling, Algonquian, p. 229. Prideaux pp. 254-55. Sabin 31489 (29 plates). Streeter VI 3658. TPL 805. A spectacular copy of the rarest issue of the book complete with all of the plates being finely hand coloured! the normal issue has the plates printed in sepia. in addition this copy is very tall as all of the edges have been kept untrimmed. This copy is very clean, far more so than normal as the sepia issue seemed to become quite a bit more browned. 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. Heriot 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. Very very scarce in this condition and fully coloured. 1807

      1807 - This is an early map of Owego with one street called CHAPPELL ST. that is described in Kingman's EARLY OWEGO on page 347 "That portion between Main and Front was known as Chapel street, (so called because the old Methodist church, then known as "the chapel,' stood on the southeast corner of it and Main Street. After the academy was built in this street, in 1883, the name was changed to Academy street."

        THE LADY'S MAGAZINE or Entertaining Companion for the FAIR SEX, Appropriated Solely to Their USE and AMUSEMENT

      London, Patternoster Row: Printed for G. Robinson This bound volume of issues is about 9 x 5.5 inches (about 22 x 14 cm) 3/4 leather, red cloth cover with green leather corners and spine, gilt decorations on all leather edges and on spine, gilt spine titles. The edges are rubbed and corners worn and the red cloth has a little light soil and a couple of small splots on the front board, otherwise the colors and gilt are bright. Plain colored endpapers, hinges started but strong. Previous owner's bookplate on front paste-down. All edges stained red. The text is on rag paper, very clean and fresh throughout. Issues include: 1807: Jan, April, May, June, Sept; 1809: Jan, Feb, May, June, Sept. Images included: 10 hand-watercolored fashion plates (Regency period). These usually represent two figures (often front and back views) of women in congenial activities - playing the harp, lounging and conversing, walking arm-in-arm, etc. One is so cute, it reminds me sharply of Kate Greenaway. Plus: 23 engravings and 13 folding engravings. The folding engravings are mostly embroidery patterns (or rather, designs) for such things as borders and trimmings, crown of a cap, designs to decorate veils, etc. Very delicate and mostly flora-inspired. The engravings include scenes and portraits, with a "gallery" of English peers at the end of the book. The texts cover a wide range of topics including current fashion, biography, history and natural history, travel, poetry, foreign news, births, marriages, and deaths, essays, etc. Apparently what a 'Lady' of the period would need to know to carry on sprightly parlour conversation. Ladies in the obituaries are noted for their piety, pleasantness, manners, and tenderness. Their patronage is recounted. Many died in 'childbed' or in 'unsuccessful labor.' Gentlemen are noted for their accomplishments. No further comment from ye cataloger. COLLECTIBLE 3592. Serial, First Editions. Hard Cover. Very Good Condition/No Dust Jacket (as issued). Illus. by Hand-colored Plates Plus Engravings. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Collectible.

        Terre de Diemén. Grou-agara.

      Paris: circa, 1807. Engraved portrait, 315 x 240 mm. (plate size). A striking portrait of the Tasmanian man Grou-Agara by Petit prepared for the atlas volume of the first edition of the official voyage account.The two ships of the expedition had anchored in d'Entrecasteaux Channel on 13 January 1802 after two months at sea; Frank Horner has called the time that followed 'two of the most productive months the expedition was to enjoy' (The French Reconnaissance, p. 191). Their easy and friendly relations with the aboriginal tribes of the region had brought great satisfaction to the French, and they maintained a good rapport throughout their stay. Petit, in particular, was very busy with his sketch book, and his series of portraits and scenes are among the most sensitive portrayals of Tasmanian aborigines - in fact, together with the handful of portraits in the official account of Cook's third voyage, these portraits are the earliest major study of the Tasmanians.The table of contents simply notes that this man was from Van Diemen's Land. Slight marginal browning, very good condition.

The Travels of Bertrandon de la Brocquiere, Counsellor & First Esquire-Carver to Philippe le Bon, Duke of Burgundy, to Palestine, and His Return from Jerusalem Overland to France, During the Years 1432 & 1433. [England]: At the Hafod Press, by James Henderson, 1807. Tall octavo, 20th-century three-quarter vellum, red morocco spine label. $1500.First edition in English of this combined Middle Eastern travel narrative and comprehensive investigation of international relations between the Ottoman Empire and its allies, written to support the commencement of the Crusades, with double-page engraved map of Tartary, handsomely bound.At the instruction of the Duc de Bourgogne, la Brocquiere undertook a pilgrimage to Jerusalem in order to investigate whether Europe could be liberated from Ottoman rule. This work offers a critical assessment of the relations between the Turks, Greeks, and their allies during the period in question. Furthermore, it urges the French, English, and Germans to band together as a unified force to overthrow the Ottoman Empire. La Brocquiere thus became the authoritative Western voice in support of the Crusades. This work was originally written in manuscript and then subsequently extracted from the original volume in the National Library at Paris and put into modern French by M. le Grand DÂ’Aussy. This is the first edition in English, translated by Thomas Johnes. Light foxing to interior. A near-fine copy.

        The Peacock ""At Home""

      1807. First Edition . [DORSET, Catherine Ann]. The Peacock “At Home:” A Sequel to the ButterflyÂ’s Ball. Written by a Lady. London: Printed for J. Harris, 1807. 16mo, original blue paper wrappers, 16 pp. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $3000.First edition of this popular childrenÂ’s poem, a sequel to The ButterflyÂ’s Ball, which ushered in a new era in childrenÂ’s books, “an era in which the moral tale was no longer dominant and levity—fun for funÂ’s sake—came into its own” (Morgan Library 159). Illustrated with six full-page copperplate engravings.In January 1807, John Harris published The ButterflyÂ’s Ball, verses written by Member of Parliament William Roscoe for the private amusement of his young son. It was reprinted several times in the following months, and in September 1807, Harris began publishing “a crop of sequels, the first of which was, for a wonder, not at all inferior to its inspiration” (Darton, 200). The Peacock At Home “tells how ‘the tenants of AirÂ’-the birds-are envious of the splendors of the ButterflyÂ’s Ball and hold their own feast on St. ValentineÂ’s Day, with the Peacock as host. The guests are described one by one, and, after the dancing, supper is announcedÂ… The poem concludes with the departure of the company as they sing the dawn chorus” (Carpenter & Pritchard, 397). The first edition listed the author simply as ‘A Lady,Â’ but in 1809 the book was re-issued in revised form with the author identified. The Peacock At Home “was widely commended. Its popularity with parents was probably due to the fact that it combined a certain amount of instruction in natural history with the levity of its narrative. The GentlemanÂ’s Magazine for November 1807 also suspected that it was a ‘Satire upon the manners of the times, and of the Great” (Carpenter & Pritchard). “The Peacock At Home and The ButterflyÂ’s Ball between them achieved a sale of 40,000 copies during their first yearÂ… they certainly serve no end which Georgian morality or modern psychology could label educational. They are merely good fun of a simple kind; not bettered in that class” (Darton, 200-01). Bookplate.Scattered foxing; very light soiling to original paper wrappers. A fine copy of this scarce childrenÂ’s classic.

        Lettres sur les arts imitateurs en général, et sur la danse en particulier.

      Paris, Léopold Colin, 1807. ____ 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". (G. Desrat, Dictionnaire de la danse p. 414.) Un portrait gravé en frontispice de l'auteur. Manques de papier sur les plats, sinon bon exemplaire relié par Dondey-Dupré avec son étiquette. *****. 2 volumes in-8. Collation : portrait, (4), XVI, 468 / (4), 520 pp. Demi-chagrin vert à long grain, dos ornés. (Reliure de l'époque).

        Proskynetarion tes hagias poleos Hierousalem kai pases Palaistines].

      Vienna, Johanna Schrämbl, 1807. - Folio (215 x 328 mm). (4), 104 pp. With engraved frontispiece and 51 leaves of plates (8 double-page-sized or folded). Near-contemporary red half morocco with gilt rules and marbled covers, spine richly gilt (loss of label). Marbled endpapers. All edges gilt. Rare description of the Holy City of Jerusalem and of the whole of Palestine; a reissue (with changed title) of the edition published by Josef Baumeister in Vienna in 1787. Previous editions had appeared in Venice in 1728, then in 1749 and 1781, while the 1787 edition boasted "a new text and different iconography" (Staikos). This latter edition is here reproduced largely unchanged save for bringing the name of the Patriarch of Jerusalem up to date (from Abraham to Anthimus), as well as that of the editor, Apostolas Boras, on the title page. "The engraving of the Patriarch on his throne is unchanged except for the name; it is signed (in Greek): 'engraved by Schindelmayer in Vienna' [.] A large-sized, impressive book" (Staikos). "A portrait of the Patriarch [Anthimus] forms the frontispiece; also, there is an illustration of the Palace of David, and a plan of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, though the view of its cross-section is quite haphazard [.] The author expands on Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Hebron, and the sacred sites of Galilee. The text is apparently more or less that of the Venice 1728 edition; apart from that, it is generously interspersed with highly appealing illustrations in the true taste of modern Greece" (cf. Tobler 135). The Viennese publisher and printer Franz Anton Schrämbl, whose company was continued by his widow Johanna after his death in 1804, specialised in reprints (often of large sets), maps, and books in Greek. Their production was one of the strongest in Vienna (cf. Frank/Frimmel, Buchwesen in Wien, p. 175f.). - Extremeties bumped; spine-ends chipped. Still a beautiful volume from the library of King George III of the United Kingdom (1738-1820) with his royal cypher on the spine. Staikos no. 28 (note p. 94). OCLC 41651327. Cf. Röhricht 1362, 1515.

        Katechetische Abhandlungen über die allerwichtigsten Religionswahrheiten für denkende Christen Aus dem größenren Werke des Herrn Bergier gezogen, und für den gegenwärtigen Zeitpunkt bearbeitet von Siard, Abt in Schussenried

      gedruckt in der Hochfürstlich Thurn- und Taxischen Buchdruckerey, Buchau [Germany] 1807 - (vi),226, (vi),242, (vi),176 pages; Contemporary calf over pattern-printed paper-covered boards, five raised bands on the calf spine, gilt-lettered labels in green and red, edges decoratively stained red, plain endpapers. The binding shows only minor rubbing and wear; there is a small and neatly written ownership inscription (the initials P.A.F. and the date "1822") at the foot of the front free endpaper; no other marks of any sort. Moderate to heavy foxing throughout. A rare and interesting work on Christian faith written by the recently displaced last abbot of the Kloster Schussenried -- the Premonstratensian monastery in Upper Swabia, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. The author, Berchtold, was born in 1738 and was educated in the Premonstratensian monastery of Füszen Ottobeuer and then finished his studies at Constance. The Premonstratensians are a Roman Catholic religious order founded in Prémontré (near Laon, France) in 1120 by Saint Norbert. Members of the order are also known as Norbertines and, in Britain and Ireland, as the White Canons (from the colour of their habit). Properly speaking, the Premonstratensians are not monks but Canons Regular, under the Rule of St. Augustine. Berchtold entered the Norbertine abbey of Schussenried, made his profession of faith in 1758 and was ordained in the priesthood on January 9, 1763. Through the years he became novice master, prefect of schools, and finally Prior before being elected abbot of Kloster Schussenried on December 3, 1791. His tenure came to a premature end in 1803. In that year the German Mediatisation awarded the abbey and its territory, in compensation for their losses to the west of the Rhine, to the Counts of Sternberg-Manderscheid, who then used the abbey as their castle. As it turned out, this forced secularization under the Final Recess of February 1803 [Reichsdeputationshauptschluss] was the last significant law enacted by the Holy Roman Empire before its dissolution in 1806. In that latter year, the former Kloster Schussenried's territory was "mediatised" to the Kingdom of Württemberg, (to whom the counts' heirs sold the buildings in 1835, including the magnificent Baroque Library). Berchtold, newly free of his administrative position and responsibilities, devoted the remainder of his life to writing on devotional subjects and the nature of Christian faith. He published under the name of "Siard," probably to honor the name of one of the first abbots of his (former) monastery. He died November 3, 1816. Berchtold states that the present work, in three parts, was inspired by Nicolas-Sylvestre Bergier [1718-90]. Father Bergier set out to "correct" certain articles of the Diderot Encyclopédie which he found theologically unacceptible, but found himself obliged to write entirely original articles which then formed the 'Dictionnaire de Theologie' as a part of the Encyclopédie. The particular work Berchtold used as his template was Bergier's 'Apologie de la Religion Chrétienne'- (written as a response to Baron d'Holbach's 'Christianisme Devoilé') -- published in Paris, 1769. Berchtold's title page asserts that he has updated Bergier's text --"für den gegenwärtigen Zeitpunkt bearbeitet." While Bergier died just before the French Revolution, father Berchtold/Siard lived through a roughly equivalent upheaval for German Catholicism -- the dissolutions of 1803 & 1806. His Premonstratensians were among the religious orders with their own distinct Rite, maintained even after Pope Pius V suppressed such rites (officially, the Pope, now a Saint, suppressed Rites with a continuous tradition of less than two hundred years). This 1807 work by Berchtold/Siard is especially worth modern attention as the unusually solumn Premonstratensian Rite places a central emphasis on the Paschal Mystery -- unique among the Latin rites. Modern Catholic thinking seems to be moving toward the Premonstratensian position. Following the Second Vatican Council, the Paschal Mystery is seen as one of the ce [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
