        A History and Description of London, Westminster and Southwark - in four volumes

      James Robins and Co., London. 1807. F 1st Edition. H Hardcover. Good. No Jacket Four volumes (complete). Edward Pugh wrote under the name David Hughson. In this way he wrote several volumes of the history and then later walks about London and its environs in the early 1800s. This set are amongst his earliest works. This is an attractive set from the library of Frederick J O Montagu (a barontecy was established for third time in this owner's lifetime). Each volume has a small, attractive ex-libris plate on the first pastedown. All volumes have been rebound in half leather. The leather edges have gilt scoring. The leathered spines have five ridges. Each of the panels has either gilt titling or gilt decoration. They are smart and youthfully handsome. Each of the volumes have gilt papertrims along the top edges. The pages of all volumes have printer marks. Chalk paper frontis and end papers. Handmade paper. Volume 1: Albion Press; the front and back pages have been stained by damp. The back pages have been wrinkled. The binding is tight, the pages are clear and easy to read. They may be handled with confidence and enjoyment. Folded maps and plans in good, sound condition. The damp stains do not interfere with text thus ensuring that reading is unaffected. The back cover is marked and stained from the damp. The leather is serene. Volume II: printed by W. Stratford, Temple-Bar. As for Volume I save for the complete absence of any damp damage/ marks/ stains. The corners have knocks. The leather spine has very mild wear. The pages, text and illustrations are clear, genial and a pleasure. Volume III: Albion Press. This volume has damp damage and staining to the back. The leather is unaffected. The last pages have been wrinkled and/or stained. They are, however, clear and eager. The frontis and very early pages have mild edge wear and storage damage. This does not intrude on the pages much beyond the edges. The book is resolutely approachable and enjoyable. The text, illustrations etc are neat and clear and clean. The corners have some wear. Volume IV: printer not indicated. The covers have some damp marks and staining. Within, the early and later pages have some mild wrinkling. The contents are assured, reassuring, clubbable. Each volume has a previous owner stamp (B Alexander and a book number). Each volume is attractive for the shelf. The wonderful thing about this set of walks about Westminster and Southwark is that they may still be used! And where war damage is encountered, the descriptions and tales would provoke wistfulness on top of the pleasure and ease of the explorations. A pleasant, happy set despite the above mentioned damp consequences, and certainly one to extract admiring comments from acquisitive visitors. fk

        A LETTER ON THE ABOLITION OF THE SLAVE TRADE; ADDRESSED TO THE FREEHOLDERS AND OTHER INHABITANTS OF YORKSHIRE

      London: Printed by Luke Hansard & Sons for T. Cadell and W. Davies, and J. Hatchard, 1807. Contemporary tree calf, spine gilt, leather label. Corners and hinges lightly worn. Modern bookplate on front pastedown. Minor scattered foxing. Very good. In a half morocco and cloth box, spine gilt. First edition, inscribed "From the Author" by Wilberforce on the titlepage. One of the most important works in the British anti-slavery campaign. A politician, philanthropist, and devoted Christian, Wilberforce spent many years fighting in Parliament for the abolition of the slave trade. This work, originally intended to only be a pamphlet, was a description of the evidence and arguments against the slave trade accumulated by Wilberforce over the course of two decades. Its publication on Jan. 31, 1807 served as the culmination of the final struggle for stopping the trafficking of slaves along with the introduction of the Abolition Bill in the House of Lords, and was the decisive factor in its passage. The bill passed the upper house by a large majority and was read in the Commons on February 23rd. It passed by 283 votes to 16 and received the royal assent on March 25. Wilberforce devoted the rest of his life to the anti-slavery movement and died in 1833, just three days after Parliament voted to abolish slavery. PRINTING AND THE MIND OF MAN 232.

        LIFE OF MICHEL ANGELO BUONARROTI, With his Poetry and Letters

      London: John Murray, et al, 1807. Second issuance. With a finely engraved portrait frontis by Bartolozzi and 49 etched outline plates of selections of works, several of which are folding, including a very large and quite impressive folding plate of the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel which unfolds to become well over three feet wide, and with three facsimile letters. Tall 4to, handsomely presented in a very fine and beautiful contemporary binding of full polished mottled calf, The spine is tooled in gilt, with double fillet lines separating the compartments. One of the compartments with dark green morocco lettering label gilt. A very handsome copy of a scarce book. xi, 468 pp. A truly beautiful copy, internally fine and fresh as could be, the plates beautifully preserved, an unusually fine period binding. Some light expected age evidence along the hinges and extremities and occasionally, other minor signs of age. A BOOK OF GREAT BEAUTY, HANDSOMELY BOUND IN FULL PERIOD POLISHED MOTTLED CALF. When speaking of any of the craftsmen involved in the work, whether printer, engraver or binder, clearly no detail was overlooked and no expense was spared in its production. Richard Duppa produced this outstanding study of Michelangelo after being inspired by a series of lectures by his friend Joshua Reynolds. Duppa provides a great of background and insight into the definitive “Renaissance man” from a great number of contemporary sources such as Vasari and Condivi. It is also one of the first and few to provide such attention on Michelangelo as a man of letters as well as sculptor, painter and architect. For the translations of poetry which enrich his work Duppa turned “to my friends Southey and Wordsworth.” Michelangelo studied and wrote poetry throughout his life, frequently turning to it in times of emotional crisis. Duppa’s biography can be found credited in almost all later scholarly work on Michelangelo. The engraved plates met with such popularity that many of them were reissued in various works throughout the 19th century.

        [Cherries] Early May - Adam's Crown - Red-Heart Cherry

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1807. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In good condition, with one expertly repaired marginal tear. 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 book 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 books 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 An Oak Spring Pomona 40a.

        Heinrich FUNK (1807 Herford/Westfalen-Stuttgart 1877) Windgepeitschte Landschaft

      - Heinrich Funk (1807 Herford/Westfalen-Stuttgart 1877). Windgepeitschte Landschaft. Bleistift auf Papier. -- Technik: -- Bleistift auf Papier. unten rechts signiert: "H Funk". -- Maße: -- 13,9 x 22,5 cm. -- Zustand: -- Hervorragender Zustand -- Beschreibung: -- Heinrich Funk besuchte seit 1829 die Kunstakademie Düsseldorf und war dort einer der ersten SchülerJohann Wilhelm Schirmers. Hier gehörte er zu jenem Kreis junger Künstler, die maßgeblich den Erfolg derDüsseldorfer Landschaftsmalerei bis zur Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts bestimmten. Zwar ging er bereit 1836 imGefolge von Alfred Rethel nach Frankfurt und lehrte seit 1854 als Professor an der Kunstschule in Stuttgart,doch der Tradition seines Lehrers blieb er Zeit seines Lebens treu. Unsere Zeichnung, die durchaus als komponierte Landschaft zu verstehen ist, besticht besonders durchFunks charakteristischen Einsatz des Bleistiftes. Dieser ist bei ihm nicht nur Linie, sondern auch Farbmaterial. Durch nuancierte Verwischungen erreicht er treffende tonale Abstufungen des Grau. Gleichzeitigevoziert der weiche Stift eine Stimmung, die sich über die reine Konturlinie nicht transportieren ließe. Sohaftet der Zeichnung bei aller Detailtreue etwas Schemenhaftes an, das sie über eine rein topographischeStudie hinaushebt. -- [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        KANKAI IBUN [Exotic tales from overseas traveling]

      [Japan], 1807. Original blue wrappers, paper labels. Some wear and rubbing to covers. Very good. An early Japanese manuscript set of the KANKAI IBUN, the extraordinary tale of Japanese shipwrecked sailors from the Wakimiya-maru, and their journey from 1792 to 1804, documenting their time in the Aleutians and in Siberia and their journey to the Court of the Tsar in St Petersburg. Rescued by agents of the Russian American Company, the sailors travelled in Russian Asia, and some of them were brought to St. Petersburg and the court of the Tsar. They were returned to Japan by the voyage of Krusenstern in 1803-6, and this manuscript also gives an important account of that voyage. In December 1793 the ship Vakamia-Maru sailed from Edo, Japan, with a cargo of wood and rice, and a crew of seventeen. A storm in the Pacific damaged the ship and eventually wrecked the crew in the Aleutian Islands. All but one of the crew managed to survive over a ten month period, when they were found by the agents of the Russian American Company and taken to Okhotsk. The Japanese sailors spent eight years in Irkutsk, before four of them went on to Saint Petersburg. There they came to the attention of the Tsar Alexander I, and visited his court. At that time Japan was still closed to Russia and most other European countries, and the Japanese sailors would have been as exotic to the Russians as the life of the court was to them. While there they saw many remarkable things, including the first Russian hot air balloon ascension in 1803. They remained in Saint Petersburg for over a year, when they were sent on Krusenstern's famous voyage into the Pacific - the first Russian circumnavigation - arriving back in Japan in 1805, after visiting various Pacific islands, including Hawaii. Krusenstern's voyage, one of the principal objectives of which was the establishment of diplomatic ties between Russia and Japan, was made under the patronage of Tsar Alexander I and Nikolai Rezanov, Russia's first envoy to Japan, who sailed on the expedition with his diplomatic mission. The two ships on this expedition, once they had rounded Cape Horn from the Atlantic, took slightly different routes across the Pacific: both visited the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii), but the Nadezhda (under Krusenstern, and with the Japanese on board) also visited the Marquesas, while the Neva (under Lisianski) visited Easter Island. The ships arrived in Japan in 1804, but the Japanese passengers did not disembark until early the next year. On their arrival home, the Japanese seamen were closely interrogated by authorities before being released. Their account was a rare, astonishing (and probably threatening) glimpse of the outside world, at a time when Japan was still to a large extent in cultural isolation. They were not treated well, and were considered almost treasonous; one tried to commit suicide. But their story was of great interest. The scholars Otsuki and Shimura recorded the story in an illustrated manuscript, which became a work of great fascination to Japanese readers. It circulated in manuscript throughout the nineteenth century, but remained effectively a 'clandestine' work until it was ultimately printed and published in 1899. The present manuscript dates from about 1807. KANKAI IBUN gives a vivid visual record of the Japanese men's experiences in Russia and the Pacific. The illustrations cover the journey across the cold wastes of the Russian Arctic (ethnographic and topographical scenes, and depictions of animals, beginning in the Aleutians), kayaks and Inuits, and life in St Petersburg: a visit to the St Petersburg Kunstkammer with a splendid double-page depiction of the giant globe there, the centre of the world's largest planetarium at the time, palaces, a fairground, the theatre, an ascent in Montgolfier balloons - the earliest manned Russian flight, portraits of Catherine the Great and Tsar Alexander I, drawings of western-style clothing, military uniforms, musical instruments, everyday objects such as coins and cutlery, and the Cyrillic alphabet; an important colour map of the world (based on a world map presented by Rezanov to the Japanese) which shows the route to Japan taken by Krusenstern, a South American alligator (labelled as a crocodile), as well as a marvellous depiction of a Marquesan man with full body tattoos and a Marquesan canoe. Early images show natives, objects and natural history of the Aleutian Islands. Other native peoples are illustrated with a great sense of wonder. There are magnificent depictions of Krusenstern's ships. Manuscripts of KANKAI IBUN are extraordinarily rare. A close study of a similar manuscript in a Russian collection has been made by Professor V.N. Goreglyad (The Manuscript of "Kankai Ibun" in the Collection of the St. Petersburg Branch of the Institute of Oriental Studies, in Manuscripta Orientalia. Vol. 3, No 2, June 1997, pp. 58-67; available online at http://www.orientalstudies.ru/eng). A wonderful, highly illustrated example of the first widely circulated Japanese account of the outside world, for many people in the Edo period.

Contemporary tan half calf, spines with numbers and twin rules in black, marbled paper sides, edges speckled black. Housed in a brown morocco-backed box. Engraved frontispieces and 18 plates after William Mulready.

A very well preserved set in excellent condition. First edition, first impression, with the imprint of the printer T. Davison on the verso of p. 235 in Vol. I, and with the Hanway Street address in the final adverts. The Juvenile Library was the brainchild of William Godwin at whose suggestion his friend, Charles Lamb agreed to adapt the best known of Shakespeare's plays into prose, specifically, as Lamb's preface states, "meant to be submitted to the young reader as an introduction to the study of Shakespeare". Although not mentioned in the first edition, the work was a joint effort between Lamb and his sister Mary, who contributed the Comedies. 'Lamb's Tales', as it subsequently became known, is one of a select group of books never to be out of print since initial publication and made an important contribution to establishing the retelling of classic literature for a younger audience as a worthy pursuit for serious authors.

        Rapport fait à son excellence le ministre de l'intérieur, sur les nouveaux développements et l'état actuel du sauvage de l'Aveyron ; Par E. M. ITARD, Docteur en médecine, médecin de l'institution impériale des sourds-muets.

      A Paris, De l'imprimerie impériale, 1807 - (1), 85 pp. Broché. Rarissime rapport mis à l'impression par l'imprimerie impériale en 1807, sur le cas de Victor, l'enfant sauvage de l'Aveyron, que le docteur Jean Marc Gaspard Itard avait entrepris d'amener à l'état civilisé. Le jeune Victor, d'abord considéré comme fou par Pinel, fut l'objet d'expérimentations méthodiques de la part du docteur Itard afin de l'éveiller au monde. Sollicitant chacun de ses sens, tentant de l'initier aux règles morales et aux rudiments de la vie sociale, il obtint quelques résultats qui lui firent penser qu'il était possible de "guérir" définitivement le jeune Victor. Malheureusement, ses espérances furent vaines, et c'est de guerre lasse qu(il se vit contraint d'abandonner l'enfant devenu adulte aux bons soins de sa gouvernante. On considère de nos jours que le cas du jeune Victor relevait plus de la pathologie que d'un supposé retour à l'état de nature. Probablement autiste, et certainement victime d'une arriération mentale, il restera dans l'histoire comme le premier enfant fou décrit de manière scientifique par un médecin féru de sciences expérimentales. Cette plaquette malheureusement affectée de quelques attaques de vers marginales, mais dans un bel état de conservation général, provient des archives d'un vétérinaire de campagne, monsieur Tournay dont il porte le paraphe sur la première page.

        [drop-title] The Epistles of Paul to Timothy.

      Among the main translators of the Bible into Cherokee in the 19th century were Samuel A. Worcester, a medical missionary, and the Rev. Stephen Foreman, a Cherokee Presbyterian minister and politician, born in Georgia in 1807, the son of John Anthony Foreman, of Scotch descent, and his Cherokee wife Wattie. He attended Union Theological Seminary in Virginia and Princeton Theological Seminary in New Jersey. The first complete New Testament in this language came from the press of the American Bible Society with a publication date of 1860, but it seems not to have really been published until 1862. Prior to that the individual books of the N.T. were published separately and at times bound as composite N.T.s or simply as composite Gospels.=> This is the first printing of ANY of the Epistles of Paul in Cherokee, here in Sequoyah's syllabary (generally called the "Cherokee alphabet") and printed at the famous Park Hill mission press.

        [Plums] Carnation Plum, Wine Sour Plum, Dauphine Plum

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1807. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In good condition. 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.

A stamp on title-page. XVI, 368; VIII, 358, (2) pp. A few leaves in the first quire disbound. Scattered brownspots and a few marginal underlinings on the first 20 leaves.. Rare first German edition of this political and economic classic, which constitutes Malthus' first major publication and his main work, because of which he is considered the father of demography and one of the main sources of inspiration for Darwin and Wallace. It is the first translation of the "Principle on Population" into any language, and it influenced German politics tremendously.The first edition was printed anonymously in London in 1798, and in 1803 the second edition, which, also according to Malthus himself, can be said to constitute a new work, appeared; -the great quarto edition from 1803 is thoroughly revised and much enlarged, the title has been changed and Malthus' name appears on the title-page for the first time, it is on this edition that all the preceding editions are based, and in consequence also the early translations. All the later editions were minor revisions of the second one. In 1806 the third edition appeared, and as soon as 1807 the first German one, which is translated from the revised third edition ("Die gegenwärtige Uebersetzung ist nach der dritten Ausgabe, Oktav, London 1806. Die Quartausgabe ist minder vollständig", Vorwort, p. V). New revisions of the text kept appearing till the sixth edition in 1826. The book, then as now, is considered highly controversial, and it has influenced all demographers ever since, as well as being of immense importance to the study of economic theory and genetic inheritance. "The "Essay" was highly influential in the progress of thought in the early nineteenth-century Europe.... "Parson" Malthus, as Cobbett dubbed him, was for many, a monster and his views were often grossly misinterpreted.... But his influence on social policy, whether for good or evil, was considerable. The Malthusian theory of population came at the right time to harden the existing feeling against the Poor Laws and Malthus was a leading spirit behind the Poor Law Amendment Act of 1834." (PMM 251).Thomas Robert Malthus (1766-1834), called the "enfant terrible" of the economists, was an English demographer, statistician and political economist, who is best known for his groundbreaking views on population growth, presented in his "Essays on the Principle of Population", which is based on his own prediction that population would outrun food supply, causing poverty and starvation. Among other things this caused the legislation, which lowered the population of the poor in England. Malthus actually turned political, economic and social thought upside down with this work, which has caused him to be considered one of the 100 most influential persons in history (Hart, The 100: A Ranking of the most Influential Persons in History, 1978). Of course, he was condemned by Marx and Engels, and opposed by the socialists universally, but the work was of immense impact on not only politics, economics, social sciences etc, but also on natural sciences. "Later in the "Origin of Species" he [Darwin] wrote that the struggle for existence "is the doctrine of Malthus applied with manifold force to the whole animal and vegetable kingdoms; for in this case there can be no artificial increase of food, and no prudential restraint from marriage" [p. 63]. Alfred Russel Wallace, who arrived at a worked-out formulation of the theory of evolution at almost precisely the same time as Darwin, acknowledged that "perhaps the most important book I read was Malthus's "Principles of Population" (My Life, p. 232). Although there were four decennial censuses before Malthus' death, he did not himself analyze the data, although he did influence Lambert Quetelet and Pierre Verhulst, who made precise statistical studies on growth of populations in developed countries and showed how the early exponential growth changed to an S curve." (DSB, IX, p. 69). As Malthus realized that his theories were not satisfactorily presented or sufficiently demonstrated in the first edition from 1798, he travelled for three years through Europe gleaning statistics, and then published the second edition in 1803. Among other places he travelled through Northern Germany, and his detailed diaries of these journeys provided him with some of the evidence necessary for the development of his theory on population growth. The observational information that he gathered on his travels in Europe were crucial to the development of his theories, which also means that the work is of great interest for other European countries, and not only Britain. "In 1819 the Royal Society elected Malthus to a fellowship. He was also a member of the French Institute and the Berlin Academy, and a founding member of the Statistical Society (1834)."

      Imbault [PN 449] [1807-1811], Paris - Rolla was an Italian composer, violinist, and violist. "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."
