His Majesty in Council
ont> W Winchester and Son : London, 1808. An uncommon record of the official regulations governing the organization and discipline of the British Navy. This copy once belonged to George Augustus Westphal who took command of the HMS Jupiter. The first edition of this work from this year. Uncommon in any edition, this is the official regulation for the Navy. Prior to 1731 every commander-in-chief had their own code of conduct and instructions for their ships. In 1731 the King's Regulations and Admiralty Instructions were first issued. They were periodically revised following this. The only copies from this year on Copac are held at Legal Deposit libraries. This work has chapters on the officers in General of His Majesty's Navy, Rand and Command, Salutes, Military Honors and Ceremonies, Flags, Provisions, and much more. To the rear of the work to the tables at No 27 'Voluntary Charge' there is an inscription signed by 'George Westphal' in pencil. To the front pastedown there is 'Jupiter' written in a contemporary hand in pencil. The same hand has written to the margins of several pages stating what each paragraph is about, 'Clergyman' and 'Letters'. It appears that this copy was kept aboard the HMS Jupiter commanded by Westphal. George Westphal was a Nova Scotian admiral in the Royal Navy. During the Battle of Trafalgar he was midshipman on the HMS Victory. During the battle he was shot in the head and was laid next to the injured Nelson. Nelson's coat was given to Westphal as a pillow, although portions of it became glued to his head due to coagulation from his wound. He kept … [Click Below for Full Description]

He was frequently referred to as "Monk" Lewis, because of the success of his 1796 Gothic novel, The Monk. He also worked as a diplomat, politician, and an estate owner in Jamaica. M. G. Lewis' first published gothic romance novel, The Monk, (his first written novel, The Effusions of Sensibility, was never finished) appeared in 1796 to great acclaim. "To exaggerate the success and scandal of The Monk were impossible. Lewis at once became famous, and a celebrity he remained" (Summers, The Gothic Quest, p. 212.As time passed, the ring of acclaim turned to a tone of criticism. Rather than famous, Lewis became "infamous" and his once "artfully contrived" novel became "lewd" and regarded with the sternest disapproval. Even so, Lewis remained popular and published prolifically to delight of his established readers. His macabre gothic romance interests took the form of plays and poems, as well as, novels. In 1808 he published this book, The Romantic Tales, which "became very popular, and the book was more th … [Click Below for Full Description]

Some staining/grubbiness, small areas of wear with paper loss along the folds. Rules printed along the bottom. No slipcase. In late 1806 Charles Dibdin, composer and dramatist was approached by the theatrical impresario, Thomas Harris of the Covent Garden Theatre to write a Christmas pantomime. Horrified at the lack of time to prepare Dibdin dusted off an old script that he had been unsuccessfuly touting around for several years; Mother Goose. Harris had little expectations when rehearsals began. Joseph Grimaldi was to play the dual role of Squire Bugle and Clown and various members of the Bologna family of acrobats played several roles. The pantomime opened on 29th December. It was preceded by George Barnwell, 'a piece of wretched cant' in the words of William Hazlitt which left the audience hungry for something to amuse them. After the first scenes of thwarted youthful love the characters are transformed by Mother Goose into their pantomime personas, Grimaldi becomes 'the Clown', the young hero, Colin, Harlequin. A series of scenes of comic violence play out including an episode in Vauxhall Gardens.

BENTHAM, JEREMY
Q[ueen s] Sq[uare] Pl[ace], 24 May 1808. In this remarkable letter Jeremy Bentham presents the case for a significant reform in English legal procedure. He begins by thanking Horner, a leading MP, for sending the report of the Committee for Searching the Lord s Journals concerning the causes that retard the decision of suits in the High Court of Chancery. Bentham attacks the routine abuse of sham writs of error in which officials and lawyers lined their pockets by entertaining bogus writs of error. He observes, The number [and] relations of the sham writs of error (brought for the mere purpose of delay) which was the main, if not sole, object of our motion, is not given: and the circumstances are such as afford a sorry confirmation of the intentional supposition suspected before. Bentham goes on, for eight pages and hundreds of words, to meticulously analyze the reports, pointing out the curious circumstances he has uncovered. He demonstrates that the journals and the Lords proceedings have been manipulated to conceal the extent of the use of writs of error. Bentham s investigations resulted in the exposure of enormous fees and emoluments inappropriately received by the Lord High Chancellor, Lord Eldon. Bentham is one of the great thinkers and reformers in the history of English law and politics. Bentham attacked what he called the technical system of evidence and adjective law which was employed in England, and which, in his opinion, led to obscurity in the law and unnecessary expense, delay, and corruption. Bentham recommended the natural system of procedure where all par … [Click Below for Full Description]

Bérenger published a collection of abridgements of numerous voyages including those of Magellan, Shelvocke, Byron, and Cook in 1788, the text of which was used for many subsequent editions designed for children such as this. "Cook earned his place in history by opening up the Pacific to western civilisation and by the foundation of British Australia. The world was given for the first time an essentially complete knowledge of the Pacific Ocean and Australia, and Cook proved once and for all that there was no great southern continent, as had always been believed.

Loiseau, Jean-Simon
Aux Archives du Droit Francais, 1808. First Edition. Softcover. 8vo. [4], 47, [1] pp. Original printed wrappers (edges a little frayed). Very good. In the development of the Code Civil, the extraordinary "Voyneau Affair" has fourfold significance. It tested in the French Supreme Court the relationship between national adoption and parental authority; established legal precedence in the rights of French war refugees in exile; explored the definition of the "tierce opposition" procedure; and assessed the limits of the concept of "civil death." The case has been frequently utilized by legal scholars to illustrated the elasticity of the Code Civil. The present pamphlet is Jean-Simon Loiseau's "beautifully composed" argument on behalf of L.-R.-A. (Auguste) Voyneau (b. 1789). As an infant Auguste disappeared during the Terror in the Vendee region and in 1795 was pronounced dead. Shortly thereafter it was determined that the infant had in fact been rescued among the corpses of a destroyed village and taken to Nantes. In 1796 a former servant of the Voyneau family encountered the young boy and thought she recognized him, or at least claimed to recognize him, from a telltale scar on his forehead. "Madame Voyneau, however, refused to accept that the boy was her son. She insisted that the child was actually the son of a poverty-stricken miller and the center of an elaborate plot to introduce an 'intruder' into her family and thus deprive them of the money that Auguste or the would-be Auguste would eventually inherit from his parents" (Heuer, p. 153).

12 November 1808. Rio Grande de San Pedro. Folio. ff. [5], manuscript in a neat and clear hand, probably that of Joze Lucas de Oliveira. Unbound. Some slight marginal worm damage but otherwise in good condition.- A manuscript account of what was most likely an espionage mission by a Portuguese Brazilian officer into Spanish-held territories in present day Uruguay, Argentina and Paraguay.The manuscript remains unpublished and no other copy has been recorded. Oliveira, ostensibly charged with chasing down a thief who had stolen substantial sums from a merchant based in Rio Grande, Matheus da Cunha Selles, set out from the Brazilian port of Rio Grande on 7 August 1808.He travelled via São Nicolau in the Misiones Orientales region of Brazil and crossed the Uruguay River into Spanish territory. After spending some time at Apóstoles (today in Argentina), he set off on 13 September travelling along the Paraná River to Corrientes and, from there, northwards along the Uruguay River to Asunción (in Paraguay) before returning to Rio Grande via São Nicolau. He submitted this report to Manuel Marques de Sousa (1743–1820), commander of the port of Rio Grande, on 12 November shortly after his return to that port.In it, Oliveira described in detail the regions and settlements he had visited, noting their populations, nature of their inhabitants, industries, resources and communications (being careful, for example, to record the distances between each location and the transport facilities available) as well as their defensive capabilities, including fortifications, munitions, a … [Click Below for Full Description]

The New and Favourite Game of Mother Goose and the Golden Egg. Pub. John Wallis 1808. Hand coloured etching on paper backed with linen. The panels measuring approx. 12 1/2 cms x 18 cms. Some staining/grubbiness, small areas of wear with paper loss along the folds. Rules printed along the bottom. No slipcase. In late 1806 Charles Dibdin, composer and dramatist was approached by the theatrical impresario, Thomas Harris of the Covent Garden Theatre to write a Christmas pantomime. Horrified at the lack of time to prepare Dibdin dusted off an old script that he had been unsuccessfuly touting around for several years; Mother Goose. Harris had little expectations when rehearsals began. Joseph Grimaldi was to play the dual role of Squire Bugle and Clown and various members of the Bologna family of acrobats played several roles. The pantomime opened on 29th December. It was preceded by George Barnwell, 'a piece of wretched cant' in the words of William Hazlitt which left the audience hungry for something to amuse them. After the first scenes of thwarted youthful love the characters are transformed by Mother Goose into their pantomime personas, Grimaldi becomes 'the Clown', the young hero, Colin, Harlequin. A series of scenes of comic violence play out including an episode in Vauxhall Gardens. The audience lapped up the offering and, after inauspicious beginnings some inexplicable theatrical chemistry had worked its magic. Grimaldi had found his most famous vehicle and he was, finally, after years of clowning apprenticeship , a 'star'. The game, published two years afterwards commemo … [Click Below for Full Description]

Netherlands, 1808. Comprised of 3" x 2 2/4" portrait cards of a nude woman and man in an undershirt. The women has forty-six cut-paper watercolor overlays and the man has fifty-one cut-paper watercolor overlays. In all ninety-seven different possible portraits, spanning professions, fashions and extraordinary hairstyle Oneof the female overlays (no.10) is dated 1808. . Each with a half-length or head and shoulder drawings with cut-outs to expose the face of the portrait. Some with more intricate cuts to provide accessories for the costume or change the character of the face. Somewhat unusual is the fact that the set represents both female and male faces in two separate base portraits. Housed in a paper covered pressed board box with a separation at center. The box most likely is not contemporary to the piece and added at some time in the 19th century. Each is numbered. Changements Inattendus, metamorphic (or protean) games are examples of early optical toys which demanded an act of interpretation, a way of looking that searched for hidden images in every day items. As part of the growing 18th Century interest in recreational science, metamorphic games also have a classical precedent , with Ovid'sMetamophosis the most famous and enduring of all the tales of transformation. "Understanding such ways of seeing - the modes of human perception - opened the way to the 'philosophical toy', devices that played with the vagaries of visual capacity and conjured images." (Quoted from Marina Warner inEyes, Lies and Illusions, exhibition catalogue pp.113, 218-19).

James Justinian Morier]
ont> John Murray: London, 1808. Ont> John Murray: London Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A smart copy of this uncommon first edition copy of James Justinian Morier's best known work 'The Adventures of Hajji Baba of Ispahan'. James Justinian Morier was a renowned British diplomat and author who entered the diplomatic service through the influence of his uncle, Admiral William Waldegrave, 1st Baron Radstock. First visiting Iran in 1808 as secretary to Sir Harford Jones-Brydges, Morier had an extensive career in the country, and wrote several travel works of his experiences that were widely popular. This picaresque romance of Persian life was written after Morier retired from his diplomatic career in Iran. The work drew heavily on Morier's personal knowledge of Persia and its people that he had acquired on the British embassy staff at Tehran. The novel hence widely influenced English ideas of Persia, and its Persian translation even led to the development of the modern Persian novel of social criticism. Complete in three volumes. This work was published anonymously. This set is in a handsome half polished calf binding with marbled paper boards. Condition: In a half polished calf binding with marbled paper boards. Externally generally smart with slight rubbing to extremities and boards. Fading to spine, as expected with this colour binding. Rubbing to spine labels resulting in small section lifting to volume I. Internally firmly bound. Pages slightly age toned to extremities but very bright and clean.

Lewis, M[atthew]. G[regory]
[in the 1808 original boards] In Four Volumes. London: Printed by D.N. Shury. for Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, 1808. Original grey-brown paper-covered boards with purple cloth spines and printed spine labels. First Edition of this collection of Gothic tales of the macabre, which Lewis adapted from original German, French and Spanish stories. As he indicates in his Preface, "Even in those Tales which are least my own, I have made so many and such important alterations, omissions, and interpolations, that it would have been less trouble to write an entire new work". Lewis (1775-1818) is often referred to as "Monk" Lewis because of his famous (infamous?) 1796 Gothic horror tale THE MONK -- replete with ghosts, murders and ravished maidens; some critics, notably Samuel Taylor Coleridge, considered the book blasphemous and Lewis never entirely escaped the resulting licentious reputation. In 1812 his father died, making him a wealthy man; no longer in need of cash, he promptly ceased writing and spent his remaining six years traveling -- especially to visit his slave-holding estates in Jamaica. In 1816 he visited with Lord Byron and Percy Bysshe Shelley in Geneva (translating Goethe's FAUST aloud to Byron), then headed back to Jamaica; on the return voyage to England in 1818, he succumbed to yellow fever and was buried at sea. He is considered to have significantly influenced the writing of other Gothic romance writers, such as Byron, Horace Walpole, and Mary Shelley. This set, without the Vol IV ads that appear only in some copies, is remarkably still in the original boards-a … [Click Below for Full Description]
