        The Experienced English Housekeeper,

      London: all the booksellers, and Manchester: R. & W. Dean,, 1807. for the use and ease of ladies, housekeepers, cooks, etc. Written purely from practice. Dedicated to the Hon. Lady Elizabeth Warburton, whom the author lately served as housekeeper. Consisting of several hundred receipts, most of which never appeared in print. A new edition. In which are inserted some celebrated receipts by other modern authors. Octavo in half-sheets (200 × 125 mm). Contemporary polished catspaw calf, recently rebacked, raised bands within gilt fillets to spine forming compartments, second and fourth gilt-lettered direct, rolled dog-tooth border gilt to covers. Engraved portrait frontispiece and 3 plates of which 2 folding. Board-edges rubbed, tips bumped, variable light browning, very small tide-mark to fore edge of prelims not affecting text, a few splashes and spots to pp. 160-170 mainly restricted to margins. A very good copy. A later London edition of this popular Georgian-era cookery book, first published in Manchester in 1769; there were some twenty further editions before the turn of the 19th century, of which only twelve were authorised. Raffald (née Whitaker, 1733-1781) was born in Doncaster and spent some fifteen years in the service of Lady Elizabeth Warburton at Arley Hall, Cheshire, before marrying her employer's gardener. "A shrewd, tactful, and strong-willed woman, with a good knowledge of French and an active concern for the poor" (ODNB), she later opened her own shop in Manchester, first in Fennell Street, then on Exchange Alley, from where she ran a cookery school and probably the city's first register office for servants. When Baldwin, the London-based publisher of the first edition, suggested altering certain northern expressions in her work, Raffald is meant to have replied, 'What I have written I proposed to write at the time; it was written deliberately, and I cannot admit to any alteration'. Baldwin reportedly paid her £1400 for the copyright and printed six more editions within her lifetime.

        The Peacock "At Home"

      1807 - [DORSET, Catherine Ann]. The Peacock "At Home:" A Sequel to the Butterfly'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 children's poem, a sequel to The Butterfly's Ball, which ushered in a new era in children's books, "an era in which the moral tale was no longer dominant and levity-fun for fun's sake-came into its own" (Morgan Library 159). Illustrated with six full-page copperplate engravings.In January 1807, John Harris published The Butterfly'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 Air'-the birds-are envious of the splendors of the Butterfly's Ball and hold their own feast on St. Valentine's Day, with the Peacock as host. The guests are described one by one, and, after the dancing, supper is announced. 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,' 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 Gentleman'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 Butterfly's Ball between them achieved a sale of 40,000 copies during their first year. 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 children's classic. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        [FOUR PRINTED HANDBILLS RELATING TO THE PARLIAMENTARY CAREER OF ENGLISH ABOLITIONIST WILLIAM ROSCOE]

      [Machester; Liverpool, 1807. Four handbills, described below. Light wrinkling, minor soiling and wear. Very good. These four printed handbills relate to electioneering in Liverpool in 1807, with two issued by supporters and two issued by political adversaries of the historian and abolitionist William Roscoe (1751-1831). Roscoe's brief parliamentary career saw him elected as Whig candidate for Liverpool in 1806, however during his public entry to the city on March 2, 1807, one day after the abolition of the slave trade was brought into law, he was harangued by angry slave traders and subsequently withdrew from the 1807 election. One of the handbills here contains a vicious poetic attack on Roscoe's character and interests, noting pointedly that "the African trade is completely destroyed." However, not all in Liverpool were opposed to abolition. Another example present here, headed "Abolition of the slave trade. Roscoe for ever!!" offers a ten-line poem celebrating, and noting Roscoe's support for, abolition. The four handbills are as follows: 1) NO ROSCOE. WILL YOU SUPPORT A MAN WHO HAS DEVOTED THE BEST PART OF HIS LIFE IN THE SERVICE OF A POPE?... [caption title and first line of text]. [N.p., but Liverpool? 1807?]. 9 1/2 x 7 1/4 inches. "'Tis more than we can, more than we will bear, we are Free, for we will not be inslaved by a Pope. [signed in type] An Old Freeman." 2) ADDRESS INTENDED TO HAVE BEEN SPOKEN BY MR.

        MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, TRANSMITTING A COPY OF THE PROCEEDINGS AND OF THE EVIDENCE EXHIBITED ON THE ARRAIGNMENT OF AARON BURR, AND OTHERS, BEFORE THE CIRCUIT COURT OF THE UNITED STATES, HELD IN VIRGINIA, IN THE YEAR 1807

      Washington, 1807. Contemporary calf, rebacked, with original gilt leather spine label laid down. Edges worn. Contemporary ink ownership signatures, imprint on titlepage effaced with ink burn, also affecting the next leaf, some contemporary ink underlining and marginal bracketing, minor foxing. Still very good. A nice association copy of this important government report concerning the "Burr conspiracy," with the signature of Congressman, mayor of Boston, and Harvard president Josiah Quincy at the top of the titlepage. In the Burr conspiracy, Thomas Jefferson accused former Vice President Aaron Burr and a host of co-conspirators of treason. Specifically, Burr and his cohorts were indicted for plotting to detach portions of the American West and South, as well as Spanish Texas, from the United States, in order to create their own empire. Burr claimed that he was simply trying to take possession of 40,000 acres in the Texas territory that had been leased to him by the Spanish Crown, in order to farm the land. In the end, Burr was acquitted of treason, but the entire affair effectively ended his already faltering political career. In the present work, President Jefferson collects and transmits documents and testimony pertaining to Burr and his co-conspirators. The second part of the text also collects various motions of the court during Burr's trial. "This is the first published report of the trial at Richmond in 1807 of Aaron Burr for treason, and on his trial immediately afterward for a misdemeanor in preparing for a military expedition against Mexico. He was acquitted in each case" - Streeter. Rare in the marketplace; the Streeter copy realized $350 in 1968. STREETER SALE 1680. HOWES B1009, "aa." SABIN 9429. TOMPKINS 57.

        Female biography; or, memoirs of illustrious and celebrated women, of all ages and countries.

      Philadelphia: Birch & Small (pr. by Fry & Kammerer) 8vo (22.3 cm, 8.8"). 3 vols. I: vi, [2], 488 pp. II: [4], 510, [2 (adv.)] pp. III: [4], 512 pp.. 1807 First American edition, following the London first of 1803. This encyclopedic collection of lives of famous (and infamous) women was compiled by controversial novelist, editor, and feminist Mary Hays, friend of Mary Wollstonecraft — who is, curiously, not counted among the "illustrious and celebrated women" here. Among those who did make the cut are Sappho, Diane de Poitiers, Matoaks (a.k.a. Pocahontas), Susannah Centlivre, Charlotte Corday, Anne Boleyn, Mrs. Pilkington, and Anne Broadstreet (i.e., Bradstreet). Hays notes in her preface that "Women, unsophisticated by the pedantry of the schools, read not for dry information, to load their memories with uninteresting facts, or to make a display of a vain erudition . . . they require pleasure to be mingled with instruction, lively images, the graces of sentiment, and the polish of language" (vol. I, p. iii). These last things, she strives to supply herself! Period-style quarter tan cloth over blue-grey paper–covered sides, spines with printed paper labels. Title-page of each volume with the blind pressure- (not perforation-) stamp of a social club library. As in all copies we have had, pages age-toned, with a few foxed or spotted; occasional short edge tears, not extending into text. Three leaves in vol. II with tears in margin with loss of paper only and four other leaves in the same volume with loss of paper and either a few letters (pp. 107–10) or words (approximately half the words on each of five lines on pp. 151–52 and a word or three on each of five lines on 229–30). => A good resource and a good "read.

        A NARRATIVE OF THE OPERATIONS OF A SMALL BRITISH FORCE, UNDER THE COMMAND OF BRIGADIER-GENERAL SIR SAMUEL AUCHMUTY, EMPLOYED IN THE REDUCTION OF MONTE VIDEO, ON THE RIVER PLATE, A.D. 1807. By a Field Officer on the Staff. Illustrated with a Plan of the Operations

      London: Printed for John Joseph Stockdale, 1807. Quarto. Original boards, with letterpress title on front cover and publisher's advertisement on rear cover, rebacked and recornered. Some soiling on cover, inner hinges reinforced. Light offsetting of plan onto titlepage, otherwise clean internally. Very good. In a cloth slipcase. An anonymous account by a field officer, now attributed to John Goulston Price Tucker, of Samuel Auchmuty's capture of Montevideo in 1807. This attack was one of a series of British incursions in South America in the beginning of the 19th century. Auchmuty's original mission was to retake Buenos Aires, which had briefly been under British control. As this was not possible, he chose instead to attack nearby Montevideo, which was strongly fortified, but much smaller than Buenos Aires. The work includes the narrative of the operations and the text of Auchmuty's general order declaring victory. An appendix records Auchmuty's own version of the events, names of British wounded and killed, prizes taken at Montevideo, and related proceedings in Parliament. The engraved plan shows the geographic region, with British troop movements delineated. SABIN 51819. ALBERICH 1248.

      Berlin, Friedrich Maurer, 1802 und 1807. - Erste illustrierte Ausgabe. Interessante Autobiographie des seinerzeit berühmten Schauspielers (1735-1799). "Einer der gebildetsten Schauspieler seiner Zeit und geachteter Theaterschriftsteller, dessen eigene Lebensbeschreibung zur Kenntnis der Entwicklung von Theaterwesen und Schauspielerstand wichtig ist" (Gassen in der NDB II 521). Dieses Gegenstück zu Christs 'Erinnerungen' ermöglicht vielfältige Einblicke nicht nur in das Theaterleben jener Zeit. "Brandes will zeigen, wie unglücklich die Folgen verwahrloster Erziehung und jugendlicher Unbesonnenheit sein können und schildert mit anziehender und schonungsloser Aufrichtigkeit die Abenteuer, die er als durchgebrannter Kaufmannslehrling erlebte, da er als Landstreicher, als Knecht eines Quacksalbers, als Hausierhändler sich kümmerlich durchschlug und übel umhergestoßen wurde, bis er endlich als Schauspieler sein Brot fand und bei den Truppen von Schönemann und Schuch, dann in München, Dresden, Mannheim und weiterhin unter Schröder in Hamburg tätig war. Neben der fesselnden Schilderung seiner Jugendabenteuer gibt das Werk auch wertvolle Einblicke in die Lebensgewohnheiten des Schauspielerstandes in jener Zeit" (Klaiber). Die erste Ausgabe von 1799-1800 enthielt nur die 3 Titelkupfer und noch nicht die hübschen Szenenkupfer. – Teils gebräunt, gelegentlich leicht fleckig. Exlibris. Selten. – Goed.

        A Journal of the Voyages and Travels of Lewis and Clark

      M'Keehan, 1807 The true first edition of this 1807 account of the Lewis and Clark expedition. Is complete, except that the title page is a facsimile, new end papers, first couple of pages have some pieces missing (see photo). The first published book on the expedition, the greatest in the history of the American west. Bound in quarter leather over marbled boards, very good condition. Comes in a custom-made collector's slipcase. Pittsburgh: Printed by Zadok Cramer for David M'Keehan, 1807., 1807. 12mo., (6 5/8 x 4 1/8 inches). "WE HAVE ENCOURAGED OUR MEN TO KEEP JOURNALS, AND SEVEN OF THEM DO SO, TO WHOM IN THIS RESPECT WE GIVE EVERY ASSISTANCE IN OUR POWER" (Lewis, letter to Jefferson 7 April 1805). First edition. The first full published account of the Corps of Discovery by a member of the expedition, Patrick Gass, who "became one of the best-known members of the expedition for several reasons: his key role as sergeant brought his name up frequently in the journals of Lewis and Clark; his account was the first to be published; he was the first to have a biography written about him; and finally, he outlived the other members of the Corps of Discovery by decades" (Wagner-Camp-Becker 6:1). "Although [Gass's Journal] lacked the insight, reflection, and depth of geographic, ethnographic, diplomatic, and scientific observations penned by Lewis and Clark, it and Jefferson's Message from the President were the only accounts available for seven years to describe the expedition's adventures" (Beckham, p. 89). "Sergeant Patrick Gass outlived every person who served on the Lewis and Clark expedition whose fate is known. Having lived so long, Gass is one of the best known of the expedition's enlisted men and has had more written about him than any other man in the Corps of Discovery, except for the two captains" (DANB).

From 1808 to 1835 he was first professor of violin and viola at the newly opened Milan Conservatory... Continuing the northern Italian tradition of Sammartini and others, Rolla was very active in the field of instrumental music... Rolla's compositions, which number some 500 or more, relate to both the Italian instrumental tradition (particularly that of Boccherini) and the Viennese Classical style... In his chamber music Rolla displays his increasing familiarity with Beethoven's music." Antonio Rostagno in Grove Music Online. "In his compositions, he elevated the viola, which before had been rarely used as a solo instrument, to a status equal to the violin's; especially his duets for violin and viola enjoyed wide circulation and many reprints." Antje Tumat in MGG2.

"In 1802, on the death of the Duke of Parma, he was summoned by the impresario Ricci to conduct the La Scala orchestra, where he remained until 1833, directing operas by Mozart, Mayr, Paer, Rossini, Bellini, the young Donizetti and Mercadante.... From 1808 to 1835 he was first professor of violin and viola at the newly opened Milan Conservatory... Continuing the northern Italian tradition of Sammartini and others, Rolla was very active in the field of instrumental music... Rolla's compositions, which number some 500 or more, relate to both the Italian instrumental tradition (particularly that of Boccherini) and the Viennese Classical style... In his chamber music Rolla displays his increasing familiarity with Beethoven's music." Antonio Rostagno in Grove Music Online. "In his compositions, he elevated the viola, which before had been rarely used as a solo instrument, to a status equal to the violin's; especially his duets for violin and viola enjoyed wide circulation and many reprints." Antje Tumat in MGG2.
