        An Account of the Rise, Progress, and Present State of the Society for the Discharge and Relief of Persons Imprisoned for Small Debts

      London, 1808. First Edition. Contemp. tree calf; rebacked. A very good copy. 8vo., There is a frontis. and large fldg. plan of the woman's workhouse. Neild's work with prison reform began in the 1760s. He was responsible for agitating for reform and founding the Society. The book offered here contains a reprint of the account of how the Society was founded and grew but it offers for the first time Neild's lengthy and exquisitely detailed reports on the condition of prisoners and prison/workhouse facilities in general throughout the United Kingdom. Neild appears to have been indefatigable in his inspections; his biographer notes that jailers and wardens were spurred to a, '... keener sense of their responsibilities ...' by Neild. Though the 1808 printing offered here bears the notice 3rd edition it is erroneous. This is the first edition of Neild's complete report of his tour containing an additional 400 pp. of text. There is an additonal portrait of Lettsom, Neild's close friend, added to this copy that is not properly part of the collation. See DNB XIV, pp. 169-170.

In good condition with the exception of being trimmed to border of image on right and left margin. Trimmed just outside platemark on top and bottom margin. Facsimile work on lower right corner. Skillfully repaired tear in upper left corner. Skillfully mended tear on right side of image. Repaired tear on left margin. Some surface soiling in margins. A charming image of a young woman holding a book, by the celebrated painter Adam Buck. Adam Buck (1759-1833) made a name for himself as an accomplished miniature painter. After arriving in London he soon gained popularity as a skillful portraitist, and became a regular exhibitor at the London exhibitions. During his career he exhibited more than 170 paintings at the Royal Academy and was a regular contributor to the Society of British Artists, and the British Institution. His work was eagerly reproduced by contemporary engravers; and these delicate prints enjoyed a wide circulation throughout England and Europe. Colour printed stipples of his charming paintings were eagerly collected by contemporary print enthusiasts, and they survive today as a wonderful example of fine English printmaking.

His endless dinner parties (where he locked the guests in his home and sold tickets to spectators) and fake funerals (one for himself), both mocked the huge banquets of the last days of the King and Queen, and presaged a more intimate, individual expression of the gourmet spirit.

        Le Cook de la Jeunesse , ou Extrait des voyages les plus récens dans les régions les plus éloignées

      Paris: no publisher, 1808. Two volumes, duodecimo, three folding engraved plates after John Webber, charming early printed prize label to front endpapers; a little rubbed but a very good set in original tree calf, ornate gilt spines with black morocco labels. A beautiful set of this charming and popular French account of various voyages for children. As the title suggests, much of the material here is taken directly from the voyages of Captain Cook. The three folding engraved plates, all after Webber, respectively depict a Maori war canoe, a walrus hunt and a Tahitian human sacrifice.There were a number of juvenile editions based on Jean-Pierre Bérenger's popular collections of voyage accounts which first appeared in 1780. Bérenger was a Swiss polymath; politically active, he was exiled from Geneva and spent much of his adult life in Lausanne. He wrote several important books on geography and the voyages to the Pacific. This Paris edition is largely devoted to the voyages of Cook and has chapters describing Tahiti, New Zealand, Unalaska, and the Sandwich Islands, followed by an abridged life of the navigator. Forbes notes that the second volume of this work includes a lengthy section, some fifty pages, devoted to Hawaii.Attractively for such a juvenile edition, this set was awarded as a prize to one Mademoiselle Nathalie Guillemet in 1825, for her proficiency in the English language, with the original printed prize label on the front endpaper. A second award from 1828 to Mlle. Guillemet is tipped in to the front of the second volume.No copy of this version is recorded by Forbes in Hawaiian National Bibliography, though its existence is noted in the entries for two Avignon editions (370 & 495).

        [Manuscript Ledger]: Elenchus Biliczensium Litteralium Instrumentorum; Confectus anno 1808

      [Hungary]. (1808-1823). Thick folio (10" x 15"). Handwritten in Hungarian and Latin. Full mottled calf, gilt lettered and decorated spine in seven compartments, patterned endpapers, all edges stained red. A few minor scuffs, corners are bumped, near fine. A chronological ledger with entries spanning the years 1411-1823, neatly and completely written in three or four hands on both sides of the hand-ruled leaves. The first 37 entries, comprising the first three quarters of the ledger, were completed in 1808 (Most are records from the 17th and 18th Centuries). The consecutive entries that follow, numbered 38-64, were written beginning in 1811 in a different hand. They record entries from the years 1624-1823. A beautifully written ledger. Three narrow columns at the left page margins provide record numbers and dates. Several entries have been annotated in the same contemporary hand, including some neatly crossed out without affecting the legibility of the written text. There are also a very few scattered later marginal annotations and underlining. A handsome, well-preserved volume. .
