        Autograph letter signed ("Aldini").

      Milano, 18. VI. 1808. - 4to. 2½ pp. on double leaf. A rather indignant letter to a colleague, written in his capacity as city council, expressing his displeasure that a report drafted by him had found no support in the Council: "[.] L'ultimo affare andò gavi matina con approvazione della seduta del consiglio Generali, benché fosse stato il solo nel quale il mio rapporto non aveva avutto il suffraggio del Consiglio degli Uditori. Feci inserire nel processo verbale il mio dissenso, e appoggiato dal Ministero del Culto, da Guicciardi, e da Contarini feci vedere a miei stessi colleghi che bisognava rispettare le mie opinioni. L'affare era legale, e senza quei vostri maledetti stracci sostenni, e vinsi la causa come potrete essere informato in detaglio dal Giudice Bellentani a cui ne scrivo, poiché me l'aveva vivamente raccomandata [.] credo che non vadi niente della vostra convenienza col ripetere mia petizione colla quale chiederete il disputo dell' affare, accennando che vi sono fondi appositi pur il noto pagamento, e che non c'è bisogno di rescrivere al Prefetto. Mandatemi la petizione per la posta per profittare del momento. Parlai al Generale Polfranneschi del Giandame Ferrari, e rimase sorpreso della condotta del Colonello Zanini, promettendo nuovamente, che non emergendo notizie in contrario, avrebbe anche a mio riguardo avuto in tutta considerazione la sua istanza [.]". - Slight clipped section on f. 2 due to broken seal (not touching text).

        View in the island of Cracatoa (Indonesia)

      London: Printed by W. Bulmer and Co., 1808-09 - John Webber (1751-1793) Views of the South Seas, from drawings by the late John Webber, Illustrative of Captain Cook’s Voyages London: Printed by W. Bulmer and Co., 1808-09 Hand-colored aquatint engravings Paper size: 15 1/2” x 20 3/4” Framed size: 24” x 29 1/2” The son of a Swiss sculptor, James Webber was the official artist on Cook’s fateful third voyage, which was a search for the Northwest Passage, a sea route throught the Arctic to connect the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Webber published his own splendid illustrations of the remarkable journey in this extremely rare volume. These aquatints reproduce his original drawings, done on board the Resolution in the years 1776-1780. Flawlessly drafted, in full color, these images brought the events and places of that legendary voyage--sites including Tahiti, New Zealand, and Hawaii, to European eyes with much more vibrance and immediacy than Cook’s own black and white publications. After the death of Captain Cook during the course of his voyage, many artists found inspiration in what they perceived as his romanticized and tragic demise at sea. Furthermore, Cook’s published accounts of his journeys were immensely popular. His death left a void for the voracious public appetite for scenes of the exotic locations he had visited. Many artists issued their own visual versions of Cook’s journeys, some who had ties to the expeditions, many more who were not even remotely connected. Webber’s stunning views of these bays and islands were some of the most beautiful produced during the years just after Cook’s death. They were, in addition, among the most accurate, as they were rendered on sight. All views share a sense of excitement of the voyage itself, from the point of view of the men who manned the ships. It is a feeling that Webber conveys masterfully to the viewer.

        The Family Expositor

      London - Mathews and Leigh, 1808 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Four leatherbound volumes with gilt titles to the spine,frontispiece, 1plate and1 colourmapin Volume I, colour mapin Volume II, fold-out colourmap in Volume III, and 2 plates in Volume IV. Philip Doddridge (June 26, 1702 - October 26, 1751) was an English Nonconformist leader and hymnwriter. With independent religious leanings, Philip Doddridge declined offers which would have led him into the Anglican ministry, or the bar; and in 1719 chose instead to enter the liberal academy for Nonconformists or Dissenters at Kibworth in Leicestershire. Here he was taught by the Rev. John Jennings, whom Doddridge briefly succeeded in 1723. Later that year, at a general meeting of Nonconformist ministers, Philip Doddridge was chosen to conduct the academy being newly established at Market Harborough. In the same year, he received an invitation to be pastor to an independent congregation at Northampton, which he also accepted. Here his popularity as a preacher is said to have been chiefly due to his high susceptibility, joined with physical advantages and perfect sincerity. His sermons were mostly practical in character, and his aim was to cultivate in his hearers a spiritual and devotional frame of mind. Throughout the 1730s and 1740s Philip Doddridge continued his academic and pastoral work, and developed close relations with numerous early religious revivalists and independents, through extensive visits and correspondence. Through this approach he helped establish and maintain a circle of influential independent religious thinkers and writers, including Dr Isaac Watts. He also became a prolific author and hymn-writer. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm with all covers and pages attached, although the front hinges are strained with cracks appearing at the top and bottom of the hinges. There is some wear to the extremities including some rubbing to the boards with a few small chips to the leather. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright with the occasional handling mark and slight spotting to a few pages. There is a rubber stamp to the title pages and ownership labels to the front blank endpapers. Overall the volumes are in very good condition..

        Jefferson defends the most controversial Act of his Presidency: The Embargo: <I>"To have submitted our rightful commerce to...tributary exactions...would have been to surrender our independence"</I>

      [Monticello], August 26, 1808 Responding to the residents of Newbury Port "in legal town meeting assembled," the President offers a carefully crafted, very detailed justification of his Embargo. In a 3-page LS Jefferson details his beliefs and reasons for the controversial embargo. He acknowledges "the inconvenience brought on our country in general by the circumstances of the times in which we happen to live, times to which the history of nations presents no parallel," and reminds them that "For years we have been looking as spectators on our brethren of Europe, afflicted by all those ills which necessarily follow an abandonment of the moral rules which bind men and nations together. Connected with them in friendship and commerce we have happily so far kept aloof from their calamitous conflicts by a steady observance of justice towards all."Jefferson conceived the Embargo Act,signed into law in December 1807, as the only viable alternative to a costly war on the high seas with the European belliger

        Marmion a Tale of Flodden Field

      813 - Edinburgh - J. Ballantyne and Co 1808 - A set of attractively bound first edition examples of Scott's popular narrative poems. Marmion is a first edition, second state of the first impression, and one of 2000 copies issued. The poem concerns Lord Marmion who is after a favourite of Henry VIII, the wealthy heiress, Clara de Clare. He implicates her fianc, Sir Ralph De Wilton, in a treasonable plot, but eventually De Wilton has Marmion unmasked just as the battle of Flodden Field begins. Marmion is killed in the battle while De Wilton regains his honor, estates, and Clara. The book was a tremendous success, despite its exceedingly high price at the time of publication. The Lady of the Lake is, first edition, first impression from 1810, and features a frontispiece of Walter Scott. Set in the Trossachs region of Scotland, it is composed of six cantos, each of which concerns the action of a single day. The poem has three main plots: the contest among three men, Roderick Dhu, James Fitz-James, and Malcolm Graeme, to win the love of Ellen Douglas; the feud and reconciliation of King James V of Scotland and James Douglas; and a war between the lowland Scots (led by James V) and the highland clans (led by Roderick Dhu of Clan Alpine). The poem was tremendously influential in the nineteenth century, and inspired the Highland Revival. Rokeby is a first edition andfirst impression. Publishers advertisments to the rear. Set in 1644 during the English Civil War, the poem exudesa touch of the supernatural; surrounding a haunted glen. Critical opinion was broadly favourable, with particularly positive reviews appearing in the Antijacobin Review, British Critic, and Monthly Review. The British Critic's reviewer called it 'pure poetry' and predicted that 'the name of Scott will descend to the latest posterity with those of the most established poets'. With Scottish politician Sir William Duff-Gordon's armorial bookplate to the front pastedown of The Lady of the Lake. As well as Margaret Scrimgeour bookplate to the front and rearpastedown to Rokeby and Marmion. Condition: Re-backed in decorative calf binding, with gilt boarders and lettering to the spines. Externally, light marks to the boards and wear to extremities. Marmion has slight loss to the front board. The Lady of the Lake and Rokeby has light wear to the head of the front board. Internally, all are firmly bound with bright pages. The Lady of the Lake has light offsetting to title page and marginal spotting to frontispiece. Light scattered spotting to the first few pages of Rokeby. Marmion is clean throughout, aside from the very odd spot to endpapers. Overall: VERY GOOD. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Proceedings of a General Court Martial, held at Chelsea Hospital &#133; for the Trial of Lieut. Gen. Whitelocke,

      London: Printed for J.C. Mottley, Portsmouth, Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, and H.D. Symonds [& two others],, 1808. Late Commander in Chief of the Forces in South America. Taken in Short-hand by Mr. Gurney. 2 volumes octavo (209 × 123 mm) Contemporary half calf on marbled boards, black morocco labels, volume numbers direct to spines, compartments formed by black-stained bands, gilt lozenge centre-tools, zig-zag roll in blind to the spine and corner edges, eau-de-nil endpapers, Folding map frontispiece to each. A little rubbed, joints starting, small chip to spine of volume II, no loss, repaired, frontispieces foxed, light browning, but overall very good. First edition. Includes the sentence leaf - pp829-30 - bound in at the end. An accurate and authoritative account - taken by William Brodie Gurney, grandson of Thomas, the founder of "England&#39;s great stenographic dynasty" - of the aftermath of the notorious debacle at Buenos Aires and Montevideo. "The court martial took seven weeks, and Whitelocke faced four charges covering poor diplomacy, military incompetence, and negotiation of a shameful surrender, each barely relevant to what had happened. He was found guilty and was cashiered. His fault lay in taking on a task beyond his capacity, for which those who appointed him should have shared the blame. It was also a task, in all probability, beyond the capacity of the British forces. All of those who recorded their impressions remarked that holding the Plate area against the wishes of the inhabitants was impossible: they wanted either Spanish rule or independence; a British conquest would have been extremely unpleasant, and ultimately a costly failure. Whitelocke&#39;s surrender and evacuation permitted the army to be returned to Britain to fight the real enemy, Napoleon. Many of Whitelocke&#39;s regiments went to fight in Spain later in 1808. Nevertheless he had shown himself incompetent" (ODNB).

        The Microcosm of London

      London: T. Bensley,, [1808&#150;10]. 3 volumes, quarto (332 × 265 mm). Contemporary brown calf rebacked, spines gilt in compartments, green and red morocco labels, floral roll and cornerpieces to boards gilt, marbled endpapers. Engraved title and dedication page to each volume, 104 hand-coloured plates. Bindings rubbed and scuffed, wear to corners, contents lightly tanned, offsetting from plates, small rectangular piece cut from front blank of volume I. A very good set. First edition, early issue with a number of the plates in their first state. The plates are from drawings by Thomas Rowlandson (1756&#150;1827) and Augustus Pugin (1762&#150;1832). Pugin supplied the architectural drawings, which have an accuracy and serene beauty that contrasts nicely with Rowlandson&#39;s images of Londoners engaged in their everyday life. The excellence of the work is completed by the text, which forms an admirable adjunct to the plates, with vol. I and II by William Henry Pyne (1769&#150;1843) and vol. III by William Combe (1741&#150;1823).

        Autograph Letter Signed "Gambier" to Vice Admiral Sir John Duckworth "off Ushant", About the Admiralty's Orders that "Lieutenant Brompton to be discharged from St. George, without waiting to be superceded with directions to join the Neptune immediately"].

      1808 - Caledonia in Hamoze, 21 September 1808. Folio (ca. 31,5x20 cm). 2 pp. Brown ink on Whatman laid paper watermarked '1806'; numbered and docketed in secretarial hand on verso. Written in secretarial hand and signed by Gambier. A fine letter. This official letter was signed by Admiral of the Fleet James Gambier, when he was the commander of the Channel Fleet of the Royal Navy (1808-1811), and addressed to Admiral Sir John Thomas Duckworth (1747-1817), then the second in command of the Mediterranean Fleet. The letter concerns the transfer of one of Gambier's officers from his flagship HSM Royal George (1788) to HSM Neptune (1797), a 98-gun second rate ship of the line. She was just about to embark to the West Indies where she would become the flagship of the British invasion to the French colony of Martinique in January 1809 under command of Rear-Admiral Alexander Cochrane. Gambier wrote the letter on board HMS Caledonia (1808), a 120-gun first-rate ship of the line, which had been launched earlier that year at Plymouth. Sir James Gambier also was the Governor of Newfoundland (1802-1804), and a Lord of the Admiralty. He participated in the American War of Independence, gained the distinction in the Glorious First of June in 1794, and commanded the naval forces in the campaign against Copenhagen (1807) and in the Battle of the Basque Roads (1809). Gambier was a founding benefactor of Kenyon College in the United States, so the town that was founded with it, Gambier, Ohio is named after him. Mount Gambier, South Australia, the extinct volcano and the later city, and the Gambier Island in British Columbia are also named after him (Wikipedia). Sir John Thomas Duckworth "served during the American War of Independence, the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, as the Governor of Newfoundland during the War of 1812, and a member of the British House of Commons during his semi-retirement. Serving with most of the great names of the Royal Navy during the later 18th and early 19th centuries, he fought almost all of Britain's enemies on the seas at one time or another, including a Dardanelles operation that would be remembered a century later during the First World War. He commanded at the Battle of San Domingo, the last great fleet action of the Napoleonic Wars" (Wikipedia).

        The Road Side. From an original Picture in the Collection of Thos. Lister Parker Esqr

      W. Say, London 1808 - A beautiful composition expertly rendered by one of the greatest mezzotinters of his time. William Owen "was sent in 1786 to London, where he became a pupil of Charles Catton, R.A., the coach-painter. Soon afterwards he attracted the notice of Sir Joshua Reynolds, whose picture of Perdita he had copied, and he was indebted to Reynolds for some valuable advice. He entered the Royal Academy as a student in 1791, and his earliest exhibited works. appeared in the exhibition of 1792; and in each succeeding year, except 1823, he contributed portraits and occasional rustic subjects. Some of the most eminent men of the day were among his sitters, and his portraits were truthful and characteristic.Owen was elected an associate of the Royal Academy in 1804, and an academician in 1806. In 1810 he was appointed portrait-painter to the Prince of Wales, and in 1813 principal portrait-painter to the prince-regent, who offered him the honour of knighthood, which he declined."( DNB ). William Say (1768-1834) came to London at about twenty years old "and obtained instruction from James Ward (1769-1859), who was then practising mezzotint engraving. Say became an able and extremely industrious engraver, working entirely in mezzotint, and between 1801 and 1834 executed no fewer than 335 plates, a large proportion of which are portraits of contemporary celebrities, from pictures by Beechey, Hoppner, Lawrence, Northcote, Reynolds, and others. Say was one of the engravers employed by Turner upon his Liber Studiorum, for which he executed eleven of the published and two of the unpublished plates. In 1807 he was appointed engraver to the Duke of Gloucester.An almost complete set of Say's works, in various states, was presented to the British Museum by his son in 1852' ( DNB ) The implied narrative is of a mother and her young family on a long journey on foot, who have found a place to rest and nurse the baby. But the message of the image is not about rural poverty but rather about familial union. Everyone is asleep or nearly, exhausted and vulnerable, and yet safe and protected in their togetherness. The white clothing and pink faces make a radiant diagonal rounded into a self-contained unit by the little girl at her mother's feet and the drowsy boy above, in sharp contrast to the dark plants, rocks and sky beyond them. Mezzotint, printed in colours, with touches of hand-colouring, by William Say (cut to plate mark and expertly re-margined to top and sides). Title margin fo.
