        Account of the Life and Writings of James Bruce, of Kinnaird. Author of the Travels to Discover the Source of the Nile, in the Years 1768, 1769, 1770, 1771, 1772, & 1773.

      Edinburgh: by George Ramsay and Company, for Archibald Constable and Company [and 2 others], 1808 - Quarto (288 x 224 mm). Later-19th-century half calf, raised bands gilt to spines forming blind-ruled compartments, black morocco label, comb-marbled sides and edges. Rubbed, occasional browning, short nick to fore edge of sig. Dd2, the text unaffected, plates and maps spotted, and with damp-staining to lower outer corners, short closed tears to map stubs sometime tape-repaired verso. A good copy.

First separate edition, originally published in octavo as part of the second edition of Bruce's Travels (1805), and "now reprinted in the quarto form, with considerable additions and emendations" (Preface). When Bruce died in 1794 his reputation was still in doubt; Murray, who also edited the second and third editions of his Travels, "did much to confirm that James Bruce had indeed made a notable contribution to what he himself called 'the noblest of all occupations, that of exploring distant parts'" (Buisseret, The Oxford Companion to World Exploration, vol. 1, 128).

        Narrative of the Expedition To The Baltic: With An Account of the Siege and Capitulation of Copenhagen; including the Surrender of the Danish Fleet. By an Officer employed in the Expedition.

      London, Brettell for Lindsell, 1808. 8vo. Entirely uncut in the publisher's paper-backed boards with ms. title lable to spine; pp. xi, 307, two hand-coloured engraved maps; re-backed at an early state, head of spine defective, boards a little spotted, remnants of bookplate, a little offsetting from maps, even light toning to text; a good copy of a great rarity. First edition, privately published. Dedicated to William Shaw Cathcart, the military leader of the operations against Copenhagen and Danish forces, this anonymous account was 'written principally to beguile those solitary hours which fall to the lot of most military men, and to preserve a private memorial of the events which occurred during the operations in Zeeland, without any view to publication' (author's Advertisement). Besides being a blow-by-blow account of the Baltic operations, this volume contains valuable descriptions of the reaction of the population of Copenhagen to British occupation. 'In the summer of 1807 it became clear to Lord Castlereagh that the French might commandeer the Danish fleet stationed in Copenhagen. To prevent this, Castlereagh sent Admiral Gambier and Cathcart to take control of the fleet and the city. The British arrived at the end of August and immediately tried to negotiate a surrender with Major-General Peiman, the commander of Copenhagen's military forces. This proved ineffectual and by 1 September they had placed mortar and gun batteries around the city and had blockaded Stralsund, the nearest Danish port capable of assisting Copenhagen. Having strengthened their position, Gambier and Cathcart once again asked Peiman to surrender the city and the fleet. He refused and emphasized his resolution by not allowing the women and children to leave the city. The British batteries began to shell Copenhagen on 2 September. This pounding continued until 6 September and articles of surrender were signed on the next day. The British forces then took control of the citadel and arsenal and began to repair the naval vessels that the Danish had tried to scuttle ... Although his Copenhagen victory had enabled the British army to impound naval supplies and vessels, the British public remained divided in its opinion of the episode. Opponents of the attack were especially appalled by the number of women and children who died in the siege.' (ODNB on Cathcart). This controvery explains why there are no immediate publications about the 1807 siege, and why this book is so rare and was published privately. The only copy in COPAC is the one in the British Library; KVK locates one further copy, in the Danish Royal Library, with only one map.

In den 1806 bis 1813 erschienen Werken `Grundsätze der Höheren Krieskunst`, `Dienstreglement für die kaiserlich-königliche Infanterie` und in den `Beiträgen zum praktischen Unterricht im Felde für die Offiziere der österreichischen Armee` fasste Erzherzog Carl [Karl] die Essenz der strategischen und taktischen Klugheit zur militärischen Vollkommenheit seiner Korpskommandanten zusammen" (Hubert Zeinar, Geschichte des österreichischen Generalstabes. S. 218). - "As a military strategist, historians compare him to Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, conservative, cautious, and competent. Charles was a study in contrasts. As a practitioner, he was flawless in executing complex and risky maneuvers of troops in the heat of battle, achieving brilliant victories in the face of almost certain defeat. Yet, as a theoretician, his devotion to ground and caution led his contemporary, Carl von Clausewitz, to criticize his rigidity and adherence to geographic strategy. Regardless, he remains among Austria`s pantheon of heroes of the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars" (Wikipedia Abruf vom 02.05.2017). - Schönes Exemplar aus der Bibliothek von Ernst August I., König von Hannover (1771 - 1851) mit dessen Exlibrisstempel auf dem Titel verso sowie dem blindgeprägtem königlichen Wappen-Supralibros auf dem Vorderdeckel.

        Carte réduite de la mer Méditerranée et de la mer Noire dédiée et présentée a S.M. l'Empereur et Roy.

      Incisione in rame di P.A.F. Tardieu, cm 79x192, stampata in 4 lastre. Carta di notevole rarità basata su "les déterminations astronomiques les plus recentes, sur les meilleures cartes marines et terrestres, remarques des pilotes et journaux de navigation par J.A.B. Rizzi-Zannoni Géographe de Sa Majesté Sicilienne et P. Lapie Capitaine Ingénieur Géographe Français". Lapie stesso scrive "Cette carte fut dressée en 1804, par Rizzi-Zannoni, géographe napolitain; je la recommençais en grande partie en 1808 et depuis métant procuré de nouveaux matériaux, je refis en 1813, Le Côtes de la Guyenne, celles de Portugal, le Golfe de Gênes, l'Illyrie et une partie de la Grèce, la Mer de Marmara, quelques points de l'Asie mineure, l'île de Chypre et enfin la majeure partie des Côtes de l'Afrique". E' molto probabile che la carta sia stata realizzata sulla scorta della "Carta Piana del Mare Mediterraneo", di Giovanni Fileti pilota maggiore della Real Marina Borbonica, pubblicata a Palermo in 11 fogli nel 1802, alla cui formazione il Rizzi Zannoni contribuì in maniera determinante con le sue memorie e la sua prestigiosa raccolta cartografica. Egli ricevette a tal proposito un ordine dal conte di Thurn, comandante della marina borbonica nel delicato periodo della rivoluzione napoletana del 1799. La carta fu quindi elaborata e rivista, soprattutto per le coordinate e per la proiezione, da Pierre Lapie e quindi incisa a Parigi dal Tardieu (1757-1822), nel 1808.La carta riscosse un certo favore e l'astronomo Xavier de Zach ne pubblicò una recensione nella sua famosa Monatliche Corresponden nel 1811. Ottimo esemplare ben conservato rifilato alla battuta del ramePierre M. Lapie (fl. 1779 - 1850) fu un importante cartografo ed incisore francese attivo ad inizio Ottocento. Nacque a Mezieres nel 1771, morì nel 1850; nel 1814 diventò direttore del gabinetto topografico reale e dal 1818 direttore responsabile della nuova carta topografica di Francia; pubblicò un atlante classico nel 1812 ed uno moderno nel 1828 Copper engraving by P.A.F. Tardieu, cm 79x192. Printed from four plates conjoined. Very rare large chart of the Mediterranean Sea, based on "les déterminations astronomiques les plus recentes, sur les meilleures cartes marines et terrestres, remarques des pilotes et journaux de navigation par J.A.B. Rizzi-Zannoni Géographe de Sa Majesté Sicilienne et P. Lapie Capitaine Ingénieur Géographe Français". Lapie writes "Cette carte fut dressée en 1804, par Rizzi-Zannoni, géographe napolitain; je la recommençais en grande partie en 1808 et depuis métant procuré de nouveaux matériaux, je refis en 1813, Le Côtes de la Guyenne, celles de Portugal, le Golfe de Gênes, l'Illyrie et une partie de la Grèce, la Mer de Marmara, quelques points de l'Asie mineure, l'île de Chypre et enfin la majeure partie des Côtes de l'Afrique."It's most likely that Rizzi Zannoni realized the map after Fileti's "Carta Piana del Mare Mediterraneo"published in Palermo in 1802Very good condition even if trimmed on the platemark.Pierre M. Lapie (fl. 1779 - 1850) was French cartographer and engraver active in the early part of the 19th century. He was born at Mezieres in 1771, died in 1850; in 1814 became director of the topographical cabinet of the king, was, from 1818 he was responsible for the direction of the new topographic map of France, and had the greatest part in the execution of this magnificent work. He published a classic Atlas (1812), which was improved in several successive editions, and a Universal Atlas of Ancient and Modern Geography (1828), one of the best of his era.

        Antique Master Print-YOUNG BULL AFTER POTTER-Potter-Liernur-1808

      - Antique Master Print, titled: 'De jonge stier - Le Jeune Taureau' - This print shows a young bull. Standing Bull, after the painting by Paulus Potter. Aquatint etching, coloured on the plate (a-la-pouppee) on wove paper. Made by 'Alexandre Liernur' after 'Paulus Potter'. Alexandre Liernur (Dutch; 1769-1815) Student of several painters. He went to Rome in 1794 as a "pensionnaire" of the Dutch Prins Willem II. He returned early in 1796 because of the political situation in Italy. In the period 1801-1802 he was in Paris where he made watercolor drawings of paintings in the Louvre. Back in Holland he continued with watercolor, but as one of the first and few in the Netherlands he also mastered the aquatint techniques.

        A Reply to the Strictures of the Edinburgh Review; On the Foreign Policy of Marquis Wellesley's Administration in India; comprising an examination of the late transactions in the Carnatic. The third edition.

      London: T. Caddell and W. Davies, 1808 - Octavo. Contemporary tan half calf, marbled paper sides, titles gilt to brown label to spine, spine gilt in compartments, edges speckled brown. Minor loss to foot of spine, wear to extremities, faint marginal mark to pp. 256–257; an excellent copy. Third edition. This work is a reply to an allegedly "unprecedented attack" on Richard Wellesley's administration as Governor-General of Bengal by the Edinburgh Review in 1807. The Edinburgh Review published a review of Robert Orme's Historical Fragments of the Mogul Empire (1805) in which the editors "passed some strictures on the general policy of Lord Wellesley's administration, and particularly on some arrangements which were adopted in the year 1801 for the security of the public interests in the Carnatic". Wellesley (1760–1842) was Governor-General of Bengal from 1797 until 1805, when he retired, "in the face of severe criticism". This work is a defence of Wellesley and a direct response to the comments made in the Edinburgh Review, described at the time as part of "a malignant party cry raised against Lord Wellesley". The London Literary Review described Campbell (1766–1839), as "perfectly qualified to discuss a subject which had excited great attention", and this work as "no less distinguished by its classical elegance than by the candid and temperate manner in which the strictures of his lordship's adversaries are noticed". The work proved popular; the first edition was published in late 1807 with three further editions released in 1808. This edition is uncommon, with just one copy traced institutionally on OCLC at the British Library. The London Review, Volume 52, 1807, pp. 449–451.

        Analyse d'un cours du Docteuer Gall, ou physiologie et anatomie du cerveau d'après son système.

      A Paris, Chez Giguet et Michaud, 1808, 8, 254 pp., Halbledereinband der Zeit. Erste Ausgabe einer der wichtigsten autorisierten Quellen!Bevor Franz Joseph "im März 1808 den entscheidenden, wenn auch letztlich vergeblichen, Schritt dazu tut, wird er nicht müde, der interessierten Öffentlichkeit, und dazu gehört der Fachkundige so gut wie der aufgeschlossene oder bloß sensationslüsterne Laie, seine neue Lehre nahezubringen. Aus der Reihe der zahlreichen Unternehmungen und Veranstaltungen, die diesem Zweck dienen, soll hier lediglich der erste große hirnphysiologische Kurs erwähnt werden, den Gall am 15.1.1808 eröffnet und über den von allen Pariser Zeitungen die Gazette de France in vierzehn Folgen, nämlich vom 21.1. bis 23-2.1808, wohl am ausführlichsten berichtet. Diese Berichte stammen aus der Feder des Mediziners Nicolas-Philibert Adelon (1782-1862), eines Gail- Anhängers, der sie, erweitert, verbessert und von Gail gebilligt, umgehend als "Analyse d'un cours du docteur Gail, ou physiologie et anatomie du cerveau d'après son Système." Paris 1808 in Buchform herausbringt.Sie können deshalb in jenen turbulenten Monaten, in denen sich Zustimmung und Widerspruch aufs heftigste an Gall entzünden und ihm immer wieder schrill der abwegige Materialismusvorwurf gemacht wird, als authentische Darstellung seiner neuen Wissenschaft gelten. Adelon weiß auch schon zu berichten: "et d'ailleurs le public jouira bientôt d'un travail de M. Gail lui-même, sur la partie anatomique de son système qu'il doit développer incessamment dans un rapport à l'Institut." Den kranioskopischen Aspekt seiner Lehre will Gail dabei also aussparen, um, wie er wohl spürt, nicht unnötige Ablehnung herauszufordern.Am 14.3.1808 legen Gail und Spurzheim dem Institut National de France den von Adelon angekündigten Bericht handschriftlich vor. Noch im Oktober desselben Jahres erscheint dieser Bericht (nebst dem Urteil, das die Gutachter des Instituts darüber gefällt haben, sowie Galls und Spurzheims Kritik an diesem Urteil) auf französisch und deutsch auch im Druck: "Recherches sur le système nerveux en général, et sur celui du cerveau en particulier mémoire présénte à l'Institut de France, le 14 mars 1808 suivi d'observations sur le rapport qui en a été fait à cette compagnie par ses commissaires. Par F.J. Gall et G. Spurzheim." Paris 1809. bzw. "Untersuchungen über die Anatomie des Nervensystems überhaupt, und des Gehirns insbesondere. Ein dem Französischen Institute überreichtes Memoire von Gail und Spurzheim. Nebst dem Berichte der H.H. Commissaire des Institutes und den Bemerkungen der Verfasser über diesen Bericht." Paris, Straßburg 1809.Beide Ausgaben liegen also früher im Handel vor, als es das ausgedruckte Erscheinungsdatum vermuten läßt. Wie könnte Gail sonst auch schon am 20.1.1809 an seinen Freund Andreas Streicher schreiben: "Ich habe durch Hr. v. NEUMANN zwey Exemplare der deutschen Edition von meiner Antwort an das franz. Institut an meine Frau geschickt, wovon das eine für Sie bestimmt ist" (Briefe Galls (wie Anm. 551, S. 24)." Langen, Carl Friedrich Frhr. von: Reiten über Hindernisse. Zürich New York : Olms 1996 (Documenta hippologica), pp.101-102Vgl. dazu u.a. die Gazette de France ab Nr. 312 vom 8.11.1807, ferner den als Quelle hier höchst wichtigen J.-B. Demangeon, S. IXf. u. 4ff. sowie Briefe Galls, S. 23 u. 61f. und Leben und Werk von Franz Joseph Gall. Eine Chronik. Bearbeitet von Helmut Heintel. Würzburg 1986, S. 24ff.

A fabulous and wonderfully illustrated historic record of this momentous event. *** BIBLIOGRAPHY: H.

        The Poetical Works

      London: Printed for J. Johnson, W. J. and J. Richardson, R. Baldwin [& 18 others in London],, 1808. From the text of the Rev. Henry John Todd. With a critical essay by J. Aikin. 4 volumes, duodecimo in half-sheets (158 x 96 mm). Contemporary red marbled calf (unsigned but attributed by Comte de Caumont), decorative gilt smooth spines with scrolling floriate motif head and tail, gilt banding, twin black labels, sides with two-line gilt border enclosing scrolling floriate roll tool border, marbled edges and endpapers, gilt scrolling floriate roll tool on turn-ins. Engraved portrait frontispiece of Milton by Cromek and 20 plates by Neagle, Cooke, Thomson and others after Stephen Rigaud. Armorial bookplates of Sarah Phillott (born Stanton Prior, Somerset, 1804; died Axbridge, Somerset, 1880; described in censuses as "of independent means" and "landed proprietor" - she was certainly a discerning collector as a number of books in similarly fine bindings do appear in commerce); 20th-century bookplate (volume I) of Robert Hayhurst, Lancashire retail chemist and bibliophile, a discriminating collector of 18th-century literature in well-preserved contemporary bindings. Spines lightly sunned, minor rubbing to extremities, a touch of foxing in places. A lovely set. Second Rigaud edition, his illustrations first paired with Newton's version of the text in 1801; Todd's edition (also 1801) "remained the standard edition for fifty years" (ODNB). Stephen Rigaud's work is said to have influenced Blake's interpretation: "it seems likely that by the time he came to make his Paradise Lost designs Blake was already acquainted with those of Stephen Rigaud… [whose] designs are related in a number of ways to Blake's in terms of imaginative suggestion" (Stephen C. Behrendt, The Moment of Explosion: Blake and the Illustration of Milton, 1985, p. 122). This is not true of all the plates, but some have a distinctive Blakean power. A penciled note describes this delightfully bound set as being from the atelier of Auguste-Marie, Comte de Caumont (1743–1839), a descendent of a landed Normandy family who arrived in London from revolutionary France around 1790. It is generally accepted that de Caumont was not himself a binder, but rather confined his activities to finding patrons, keeping the accounts and overseeing the running of the workshop. In April 1814 de Caumont returned to France with Louis XVIII and apparently abandoned bookbinding. "In England... he is considered a very great binder, in an age when English bookbinding was temporarily at a high level, and actually far ahead of contemporary French binding" (Ramsden, French Bookbinders 1789-1848, p. 49). While in London he hired some of the leading binders of the day, including Cordavau, Hering, and Kalthoeber, the latter considered perhaps the finest craftsman of the period, but "because de Caumont employed so many different finishers it is difficult to attribute a distinctive style to his bindery" (Maggs, Bookbinding in the British Isles, II 264). A particularly pretty set.

        The Microcosm of London.

      London R. Ackermann -1810 1808 - Three volumes, 4to., 3 engraved title pages, 3 engraved dedication leaves, 104 finely hand-coloured aquatint plates after Rowlandson and Pugin, contemporary russia, covers with broad gilt borders, neatly rebacked to style, all edges gilt, a handsome set. The Microcosm was the first major colour plate book published by the celebrated nineteenth century publisher, Rudolph Ackermann (1764-1834). It originally appeared in monthly parts, usually by subscription, between 1808 and 1810. Each issue cost seven shillings and included four coloured plates. It later appeared in its final bound folio format of three volumes, each containing over thirty full-page hand-coloured aquatints depicting London's principal buildings in the nineteenth century. The Microcosm was a new undertaking in that it treated Regency London pictorially, and ranged over new and ancient buildings and meeting places, capturing the mood of London at the time. Life in London during the Regency era was distinctive for its architecture, literature, fashions, and politics. Socially, it was a combination of two extremes, with extravagance and opulence for the aristocracy with their affluent buildings to the overcrowded slums and poverty endured by the poor. It was an era of economic uncertainty caused by the Napoleonic Wars, and social unrest due to the Industrial Revolution and its introduction of machine-based labour over manual labour. The three volumes are laid out in the form of a dictionary, with the buildings listed alphabetically for ease of reference. From the introduction, Ackermann puts forward his intentions in producing such a work. It is aimed at those inhabitants of London who are either too busy to appreciate the architecture surrounding them, or those who are largely familiar with it, but not in great detail. It would also appeal to visitors to the city for the first time as a source of reference. Two-thirds of the buildings included no longer exist, which adds to its appeal today. These include The Pillory, The Old Bailey, King's Bench Prison, Royal Cockpit in Birdcage Walk, Brooks' Subscription House, India House of Charles Lamb, and King's Mews (now the National Gallery). (University of Reading). Pugin supplied the architectural drawings which have an accuracy and serene beauty which provide the perfect contrast to Rowlandson's figures of the population of London engaged in their everyday life. "The most magnificent [book] in artistic scope, admirable from its encyclopaedic readiness to guide us through all aspects of life concealing little was the Microcosm of London. A good copy of the Microcosm is a fine work indeed, first among Ackermann's major books, a notion of all London open to view, the world of poor or rich, wretched or mighty. The London book was a true Microcosm: charities, churches, prisons, fairs, courts, markets, theatres, hospitals. The alphabetic order of appearance was more effective than more obvious divisions. for we have them mixed, the book like life." (Franklin). Abbey Scenery 212; Tooley 7; Prideaux pp121-4. Franklin 49-54. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        MANUEL des Amphitryons, contenant un traité de la dissection des Viandes à table, la nomenclature des Menus les plus nouveaux pour chaque saison et des éléments de Politesse gourmande.

      Capelle et Renand 1808 - In-8 de 356 pp., demi-veau contemporain, dos lisse fileté, tranches jaspées (reliure à l'identique). Edition originale (Vicaire Gastronomique, 427 - Oberlé : Fastes Bacchus 135 - Cagle 233 - Simon, 805 ? Bitting, 203). Ouvrage orné d'un frontispice et 16 planches dessinées et gravées par Jean-François Tourcaty, le condisciple de David, présentant des viandes, poissons et la manière de les trancher. Exemplaire sans l'index (pp. 357-384) qui manque dans la plupart. "Très recherché, le Manuel des amphitryons est sans nul doute le meilleur ouvrage de Grimod de La Reynière, le créateur de la littérature gourmande, qui le donne pour « indispensable à tous ceux qui sont jaloux de faire bonne chère, et de la faire faire aux autres ». Manuel important rédigé par le "Père" des gourmands français comme réponse à la nouvelle mode lancée par lui-même, la littérature gastronomique. Dans sa préface très instructive, il retrace l'histoire des gourmands depuis le XVIème siècle, en citant Montaigne, jusqu'aux temps modernes, en qualifiant la Révolution de "temps désastreux". Divisé en trois parties, la première traite exclusivement de la découpe de la viande (inspiré d'un traité trouvé dans un couvent de Bernardins flamands), la deuxième contient des propos pour les menus de chaque saison, le dernier, titré "Elémens de politesse gourmande", contient le "code des devoirs réciproques des Amphitryons et des convives". Il est amusant de noter que Grimod de la Reynière estime qu''on peut comparer un Amphitryon qui ne sait ni découper ni servir, au possesseur d'une belle bibliothèque, qui ne sauroit pas lire : l'un est presque aussi honteux que l'autre" (pp.25-26).
