        Memoirs of Josias Rogers, Esq. Commander of his Majesty’s Ship Quebec

      London, 1808. London, 1808. b/w frontis. engraving. 184 pp. Rogers entered the Royal Navy in 1771 and served off Rhode Island. In 1776 he was shipwrecked in Delaware and taken prisoner by the Americans. He escaped and spent the next years marauding American shipping. He made lieutenant in 1778 and participated in the attack on Charleston in 1780. Captured again off New Jersey, and severely wounded, he was transferred to the North Sea where he made captain. He was flag captain to St. Vincent in 1790, and followed him to the West Indies aboard the Quebec in 1793. He died there of yellow fever in 1795, but he packed a great deal of adventure into his 25 year career, and this book recounts most of it. Much on the Revolutionary War and the West Indies. Howes G-191. Cundall, 1911. Bound in full tree calf. Front board detached, spine label chipped. By all appearances this was a library book at some point in its career. There is evidence of labels having been removed from front blank and back paste down. Old repaired tear on title page, with loss of two letters in title. Still, a serviceable copy of a rare book.

        An Academy for Grown HorsemenandAnnals of Horsemanship

      London -W. Baynes, 1808. London -W. Baynes, 1808 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A third edition of Gambano's droll classics on horsemanship featuring Bunbury's humorous caricatures, issued here as one volume with separate title pages. Volumes one and two bound as one; as originally published. Bound in its original publishers' binding. An Academy of Grown Horseman; containing the completest instructions for walking, trotting, cantering, galloping, stumbling and tumbling. Bound withAnnals of Horsemanship; containing accounts of accidental experiments and experimental accidents both successful and unsuccessful. Collated complete with the original twenty-nine beautifully engraved copperplates, adorned witha caricatures of the author to the frontis. The stipple engraved plates were designed by Henry William Bunbury (1750-1811). Bunbury owed much during his lifetime to the charm of a genial nature, and to his position as a man of family and education. West flattered him, and Walpole enthusiastically compared him to Hogarth. He was the friend of Goldsmith, Garrick, and Reynolds, and the favourite of the Duke and Duchess of York, to whom in 1787 he was appointed equerry. All this, coupled with the facts that he was seldom, if ever, personal, and wholly abstained from political subjects, greatly aided his popularity with the printsellers and the public of his day, and secured his admission, as an honorary exhibitor, to the walls of the Academy, where between 1780 and 1808 his works frequently appeared [They] are not without a good deal of grotesque drollery of the rough-and-ready kind in vogue towards the end of the last century that is to say, drollery depending in a great measure for its laughable qualities upon absurd contrasts, ludicrous distortions, horseplay, and personal misadventure. (DNB). Condition: In original publishers' half cloth binding with paper covered boards. Externally, worn, with the front board being detached and the rear being held by the cords only. Internally, generally firmly bound and bright throughout. Occasional instances of light marginal foxing and some off-setting. Two armorial bookplates pasted to the front pastedown. Bookseller's label to the rear pastedown. Overall: GOOD ONLY..

        Marmion; A Tale of Flodden Field

      Edinburgh - J. Ballantyne and Co., 1808. Edinburgh - J. Ballantyne and Co., 1808 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A first edition of Scott's poem about the Battle of Flodden Field. First Edition, Second Impression. With notes to the rear. Lacks half title. With the armorial bookplate of Thomas Cholmondeley to the front pastedown. Marmion is an epic poem by Walter Scott about the Battle of Flodden Field (1513). Scott started writing Marmion, his second major work, in November 1806. When Archibald Constable, the publisher, learnt of this, he offered a thousand guineas for the copyright unseen. William Miller and John Murray each agreed to take a 25%25 share in the project. Murray observed: We both view it as honourable, profitable, and glorious to be concerned in the publication of a new poem by Walter Scott. Scott later said that he thoroughly enjoyed writing the work. He told his son-in-law, Lockhart, Oh, man, I had many a grand gallop among these braes when I was thinking of Marmion. In 1807 Scott practised manoeuvres with the Light Horse Volunteers (formed to defend an invasion from France) in order to polish his description of Flodden. Marmion was finished on January 22 and published on 22 February 1808 in a quarto first edition of two thousand copies. This edition, priced one and a half guineas, sold out in a month. It was followed by twelve octavo editions between 1808 and 1825. Condition: In a half leather binding with marbled boards. Externally, sound, rubbed in places. Joints cracked but still reasonably firm. Internally, firmly bound. Foxed to the first and last few pages but otherwise generally clean with just the odd spot or mark. Overall: GOOD..

        Autograph letter signed to [Francesco] Aglietti in Italian.

      Pavia 1808 - Concerning Publication of His Masterpiece on HerniasScarpa, Antonio (1747-1832). Autograph letter signed to [Francesco] Aglietti (1757-1836), in Italian. Pavia, 28 November 1808. 1 page, 258 x 191 mm., address on verso. Lightly creased where previously folded, small lacuna in upper margin repaired where seal was broken, but otherwise clean and fine. English translation accompanies. Fascinating letter concerning the publication of Scarpa's great folio masterpiece on hernia, Sull'ernie (1809; Garrison-Morton 3583), from which come the eponyms "Scarpa's fascia" (creasteric fascia) and "Scarpa's triangle" (of the thigh); although the letter does not mention Sull'ernie by name, the date and content of the letter leave little doubt as to the identity of the work it discusses. Scarpa spent much of the money he earned as professor of anatomy at Pavia to produce and print his magnificent anatomical works, which were illustrated with beautifully engraved plates prepared after Scarpa's drawings by his house artist, Faustino Anderloni. However, in 1808, the year before the publication of Sull'ernie, Scarpa found himself strapped for cash-probably due to the enormous amount of money he had spent on his Sull'aneurisma (1804), another lavishly illustrated folio, and was forced to solicit funds from friends and fellow medical men, including Aglietti, professor of practical medicine at the Venice Hospital. In the present letter, which accompanied a copy of Sull'ernie for Aglietti's review, Scarpa alluded to the difficulty he had had in completing this work, and the financial predicament in which he found himself: "I have incurred a major expense in completing this project. I must confess to you that I am still frightened by the expenses I had incurred for my last work on aneurysm. In order for me to avoid bankruptcy, I will need help from other professionals as associates to assist in publishing this project. I am also hoping to publish this work in separate fascicules at an affordable price." Scarpa went on to state that he had already asked "all my Italian friends" to be subscribers to Sull'ernie, and that "now I am asking you for the same favor. Since you are well respected as a professional and very well known in Venice, I believe that you would be the right person to encourage other surgeons, as well as other physicians, to join in the effort to publish my work." At the foot of the letter is a list of persons and institutions, all of whom presumably received similar letters from Scarpa. Besides Aglietti, the list includes the names of Cesare Ruggieri (1768-1828), professor of practical surgery at the University of Padua; Francesco Pajola (1741-1816), the Venetian lithotomist; and the Pub. Societe di Medicina. DSB. Hirsch (Aglietti et al.). Monti / Lauria, Antonio Scarpa, pp. 67-68.

        OPERE DI GALILEO GALILEI [Each Volume Signed by Volta and by Carducci]

      Milano: Della Societa Tyipografica De'Classici Italiani, 1808-1811. Milano: Della Societa Tyipografica De'Classici Italiani, 1808-1811. First edition thus. Hardcover. Near Fine. A beautiful and scarce set of the first edition, first printing of the OPERE in octavo format, published from 1808 to 1811 and presenting Galileo's major works and discoveries in mathematics, astronomy, scientific method, the study of motion, support of the Copernican theory, and more. Printed using the original copper plates of the Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana, having a beautiful engraved frontispiece of Galileo and being profusely illustrated with plates, plans, diagrams and tables, this set contains twelve of the original thirteen Volumes, excepting only Volume Eleven. An absolutely remarkable and rare set, these volumes belonged first to Alessandro Volta (1745-1827) and then to Nobel Laureate Giosuè Alessandro Giuseppe Carducci (1835-1907), with EACH VOLUME CONTAINING THE POSSESSION SIGNATURE BOTH OF VOLTA AND OF CARDUCCI [Note: in Volume One and in Volume Nine Volta has written "Como" under his name; in Volume Two Volta has written a short note under his signature reading "Devo tutto a Dio" (meaning "I owe all to God"); in Volume Four, Carducci has written and underscored "Firenze" (meaning "Florence") below his signature; in Volume Seven, Carducci has signed twice; in Volume Ten, Volta has signed twice; and in Volume Twelve Volta has written "Como - Ora" (meaning "Como. Now") -- presumably indicating that he had just returned to his home in Como, Italy.] Alessandro Volta, Professor of Physics at the Royal School in Como and subsequently (from 1779 and for nearly forty years) Professor of Experimental Physics at the University of Pavia, is known today chiefly for inventing the voltaic pile, the first electrochemical cell, which produced a steady current, today know as the common battery. Additionally, after reading an article by Benjamin Franklin on "flammable air", Volta determined to find such "flammable air" in Italy, leading to his discovery and isolation of methane. From his study of capacitance (the ability of a body to store an electrical charge) he developed Volta's Law of Capacitance (that, for a given object, the electrical potential (V) and charge (Q ) are proportional to each other. It is for this work that the unit of electrical potential has been named the volt. In honor of Volta's work, Napoleon Bonaparte in 1801 made him a Count and in 1815, the Emperor of Austria named him a professor of philosophy at Padova. Volta's image adorned the Italian 10,000 Lira note (prior to the introduction of the Euro to Italy). Each Volume is in Near Fine to Fine condition and the leaves contain only scattered foxing. Volta's successor in ownership of this set, Giosuè Alessandro Giuseppe Carducci, regarded as the National Poet of Italy, won the 1906 Nobel Prize in Literature "not only in consideration of his deep learning and critical research, but above all as a tribute to the creative energy, freshness of style, and lyrical force which characterize his poetic masterpieces", making him the first Italian to win the Prize. (While Volta was a devout Catholic -- as evidenced by his "Devo tutto a Dio" inscription in one of the Volumes, Carducci was atheist.) Items signed by either man are as scarce as hen's teeth and we never have seen anything other than the set herein described signed by both of these great Italians. Thus we have here a set JOINING THREE OF THE GREATEST ITALIANS OF ALL TIME, showing the work of Galileo -- being some of the greatest foundational scientific work ever done -- owned by the renowned Alessandro Volta and subsequently by Giosuè Carducci, the first Italian to win the Nobel Prize in Literature, containing THIRTEEN ORIGINAL SIGNATURES AND THREE SHORT NOTATIONS OF ALESSANDRO VOLTA and THIRTEEN ORIGINAL SIGNATURES AND ONE NOTATION OF GIOSUE CARDUCCI; a STUNNING AND TRULY RARE SET OF BOOKS WHICH WOULD ADD GREAT DISTINCTION TO ANY COLLECTION.

        The Microcosm of London; or, London in Miniature.

      . 3 vols. London: T. Bensley 1808-10. (Watermarks 1807 and 1816). With 104 beautifully coloured plates by Augustus Pugin and Thomas Rowlandson showing the Insides and the Outsides of Public Buildings in London and of the Manners, Customs, etc. of its Inhabitants of the beginning of the Century, with full and interesting Descriptions. 4to. VI+(IV)+231; (6)+(VI)+239; (6)+IV+280+(6) pp. Finely bound in modern smooth marbled brown morocco in old style, back richly gilt and with dark green labels, outside gilt border and inside a a la greek border and new tissue guards. Tall and fine copy. * Magnificent work on London. Of increasing value and interest for bringing back aspects of English life now for ever passed away. Especially interesting for the many literary and graphic delineations of the manners of the time, among the plates being those of the Pillory at Charing Cross, Bartholomew Fair, with Richardson's Show, the Prisons for Debtors, the Royal Cockpit, and other obsolete institutions. The combination of Rowlandson's humorous figures with Pugin's correct representations of the architecture has a peculiarly happy effect. "The collaboration of Rowlandson, Pugin, and Ackermann brought forth one of the best color plate books, The Microcosm of London. The aquatint color plates have background settings by August Charles Pugin (1762-1832) and figures added by Rowlandson. Pugin's precise architectural drawings are surprisingly strong for the lively energy of Rowlandson's figures." (Roylance. European Graphic Arts, Princeton University 1986). According to Abbey no. 212 this is an early issue in which only 2 of the 13 errata mentioned in vol. 3 have been corrected..

Lips unter Mitarbeit der freien Zeichenschule in Weimar hergestellt. In einem programmatischen Vorwort ... beschrieb Bertuch die enge Beziehung die ein Kind zu seinem Buch aufnimmt, und stellte die Grundforderungen der sachlichen Richtigkeit und der Kindgemäßheit für die Illustrationen auf... ein Bilderbuch ist für eine Kinderstube ein ebenso wesentliches und noch unentbehrlicheres Meuble als die Wiege, die Puppen oder das Schaukelpferd." (Doderer I, 136f.) - Um die Kinder durch eine vorgegebene Ordnung der dargestellten Dinge nicht zu ermüden, wählte Bertuch eine völlig unsystematische Abfolge der Motive. In den Vorbemerkungen des ersten Bandes schreibt er: 'habe ich die krellste und bunteste Mischung der Gegenstände gemacht und bitte nur immer zu bedenken, dass ich es mit Kindern zu thun habe, die ich blos amüsiren will'."

        A Sermon Against Witchcraft, Preached in The Parish Church of Great Paxton, in the County of Huntingdon, July 17, 1808. With a Brief Account of the Circumstances Which led to two Atrocious attacks on the Person of Ann Izzard, as a Reputed Witch.

      Printed for J. Mawman Poultry, London 1808 - Hardcover. Tall, slim octavo. (ii) + x + 36pp. Modern gray cloth binding, gilt rules & gilt-lettered leather strip on spine. The author, the Rev. Isaac Nicholson, gives a first hand account of a "witch panic" that seized the villagers of Great Paxton in Huntingdonshire, in May 1808, causing them to set upon and nearly murder an elderly woman, Ann Izzard, whom the suspected of witchcraft, and to terrorise a woman Alice Russel who gave her shelter, to such an extent that it led to the latter's untimely death. The book comprises a ten page "account of the circumstances which led to two atrocious attacks on the person of Ann Izzard, as a reputed witch," an extremely learned 35 page sermon denouncing the attacker's action, and a one page note on the legal consequences. A handwritten letter, on a single folded sheet of paper, headed "Great Paxton Vicarage" and dated December 3rd, 1902, is tipped onto the rear pastedown. In it the then Vicar thanks a Mr. Birdsall for the loan of the book, observing, amongst other things, that "It has struck me that the congregation in the village must have been a great deal more intelligent in those days if Mr. Nicholson's sermon made any impression on them." From the collection of Dr. M. H. Coleman, with his ex-libris seal blind-stamped on the front free endpaper. Some pale foxing, heaviest on the title and final pages of the booklet. Still a VG + copy of a very scarce work. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Scott's much admired biography of the 17th-century poet, playwright and critic John Dryden (1631–1700). This work would form the first volume in his authoritative 18-volume Works of John Dryden published later that same year. "As a literary historian Scott was the first to relate literature to its social, political, and economic context, and in his edition and biography of Dryden, who above all poets was immersed in his times, Scott shows a powerful imaginative grasp of the interplay of the writer and his society" (ODNB).

A Very Fine example of a rare set. OCLC Number: 82435547. Little is known of Gilliland's life or career. But intriguingly, according to the ODNB, "Gilliland clearly made himself enemies." His major work, A Dramatic Synopsis, was significantly expanded and republished as The Dramatic Mirror, dated 1808 on the title-page, "but [it] may have appeared in 1807. . . . it contained a history of the stage, with accounts of actors from the time of Shakespeare onwards, and of playwrights from 1660. It was dedicated to the prince of Wales, and was venomously reviewed in The Satirist of January 1808. The reviewer's charges included plagiarism (‘The original matter would lay in as small a space as its author's brains’) and inconsistency, since Gilliland now praised Kemble [whom he had earlier lambasted]. The review claimed that Gilliland, ‘during a recent season was wont to intrude himself into the greenroom of Drury-lane theatre’, until he desisted in the face of a petition to the managers calling for his exclusion, ‘signed by the most spirited of the performers’ headed by Charles Mathews. Gilliland's alleged purpose was to spy ‘upon the private conduct of public men’ and to use their talk in his journalism, ‘as he at that time had not been dismissed from the newspapers for want of talent’. The review called him the ‘cast-off fag’ and ‘ci-devant scout’ of Anthony Pasquin (pseudonym of John Williams). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Private History of the Court of England

      London: For the author, and sold by B. Crosby & Co., 1808. London: For the author, and sold by B. Crosby & Co.,, 1808. In two volumes. 2 volumes, duodecimo. Bound c.1900 by Rivière & Son in dark green half morocco, spines gilt lettered direct, green cloth sides, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Half-titles. Early ownership inscriptions of Horace Bleakley to half-titles; pastedowns with collector's bookplates of Minto Wilson. The real identities of the historical characters occasionally supplied in neat early manuscript. A little rubbed to corners, an excellent copy. First edition. Sarah Green (fl. 1790–1825) was, according to A Biographical Dictionary of the Living Authors of Great Britain and Ireland, "a native of Ireland". She enjoyed a productive 26-year career as a novelist, most writing under pseudonyms or partly concealed authorship, including novels for the Minerva Press. This novel, combining political satire, "secret history", and sexual expose, satirised the current Prince of Wales in the guise of an historical novel by purporting to be a depiction of Edward IV, the heir apparent during the troubled reign of Henry VI, and traces the Prince's descent from romantic hero to debauchee. The Monthly Review (58, January–April 1809, 101) rated it a "clumsy fiction" of scurrilous intent, but the satirical parallels are both carefully and amusingly executed. The first edition is scarce in commerce.

        Memoirs of Josias Rogers, Esq. Commander of his Majesty’s Ship Quebec

      London, 1808. b/w frontis. engraving. 184 pp. Rogers entered the Royal Navy in 1771 and served off Rhode Island. In 1776 he was shipwrecked in Delaware and taken prisoner by the Americans. He escaped and spent the next years marauding American shipping. He made lieutenant in 1778 and participated in the attack on Charleston in 1780. Captured again off New Jersey, and severely wounded, he was transferred to the North Sea where he made captain. He was flag captain to St. Vincent in 1790, and followed him to the West Indies aboard the Quebec in 1793. He died there of yellow fever in 1795, but he packed a great deal of adventure into his 25 year career, and this book recounts most of it. Much on the Revolutionary War and the West Indies. Howes G-191. Cundall, 1911. Bound in full tree calf. Front board detached, spine label chipped. By all appearances this was a library book at some point in its career. There is evidence of labels having been removed from front blank and back paste down. Old repaired tear on title page, with loss of two letters in title. Still, a serviceable copy of a rare book.

        Commentar über das Gesetzbuch Napoleons oder gründliche Entwickelung der Discussion dieses Gesetzbuches im Staats-Rathe. Aus dem französischen übersetzt, mit practischen Erläuterungen, den Meinungen berühmter Rechtsgelehrten, so wie mit vielen Urtheilen vermehrt, die über wichtige Rechtsfragen, die nach dem Gesetzbuche Napoleons entschieden werden mußten, in Frankreich erlassen worden sind. Übersetzt von Wilhelm BLANCHARD.

      Köln, bey Keilischen Buchhandlung, 1808-09.. 8vo. (1:) 3 Bll., 508; (2:) 537; (3:) 508; (4:) 522 S. Zeitgenössische Pappbände mit Buntpapierüberzug und geprägten Rückenschildchen (von Bd. 2 abgeplatzt). (wenige Bll. in Bd. 1 und 4 anfänglich leicht angerändert).. Erste Übersetzung des legendären Kommentars "Analyse raisonnee de la Discussion du Code civil" aus der Entstehungszeit des Code civil! - Im Jahre 1800 wurde Maleville von Napoleon beauftragt, zusammen mit Tronchet, Portalis und Bigot-Preameneu den Entwurf eines Code civil auszuarbeiten. Von Napoleon war Maleville als Sekretär und Redakteur innerhalb der Kommisison beauftragt. Seine drei Kollegen beteiligten ihn aber gleichberechtigt an allen Kommissionssitzungen. Maleville betrachtete das Ius Romanum als das in Europa wichtigste und allen anderen überlegene Recht. Innerhalb der Kommission suchte er den Standpunkt des Ius Romanum bei der Ausgestaltung des Entwurfes einzubringen. Bisweilen schoß Maleville auch über dass Ziel hinaus, beispielsweise als er entgegen den Errungenschaften der Französischen Revolution, die auch die gesetzliche Gleichberechtigung der Frau forderte, die Verwirklichung des patriachalischen, römischen Familienmodells forderte. Die Paterfamilias war für ihn beispielgebend und sollte nach seinen Vorstellungen auch Inhalt des Code civil werden. In diesem Sinne lehnte Maleville auch die Ehescheidung ab, einer der großen Errungenschaften der französischen Revolution. Stark romanistisch war er auch im Erbrecht, vor allem bei der im Ius Romanum ausgeprägten grenzelosen Testierfreiheit. - Seine berühmte vierbändige "Analyse raisonnee" über die Diskussion zum Code civil im Staatsrat war ein umfassender, hochinteressanter Kommentar über das Zustandekommen, die Grundlagen und die Ausgestaltung jedes Artikels. Malleville behandelt darin in durchaus unparteiischer Weise die am umstrittensten und am kontroversest diskutierten Fragen im Entstehungsprozeß des Code civil. In der Befolgung der Legalordnung des Code civil zeigt Maleville an den einzelnen Gesetzen auf, warum die eine oder andere Meinung bei der Ausgestaltung des Gesetzes den Vorzug erhalten hat. Er fügt an, warum die eine oder andere Lücke geblieben ist und vor allem, auf welche Weise die geltende Gesetzesregelung vom Ius Romanum auf der einen Seite und dem Gewohnheitsrecht (droit coutumier) auf der anderen Seite hergeleitet bzw. abgewichen ist. - Maleville (1741-1824) war bis zum Jahre 1770 Advokat am Parlement zu Bordeaux, zog sich dann aber nach Domme im Perogard zurück. Die französische Revolution drängte ihn wieder ins öffentliche Leben zurück. Dort übernahm er Aufgaben in der Justiz und in der französischen Gesetzgebung. Maleville war ein Parteigänger der Revolution und wurde im Jahre 1790 zunächst Mitglied, später Direktor des Direktoriums im Departement Dordogne. Ein Jahr später wurde er als Richter an das Kassationsgericht zu Paris, dem obersten französischen Gericht, berufen. Dort wirkte er als Richter bis 1794. Von 1795 bis 1799 wurde er in den Ältestenrat berufen. Im Jahre 1800 schloß er sich Napoleon Bonaparte an, der ihn erneut zum Richter am Kassationsgericht ernannte, wo er bald Präsident der zivilrechtlichen Abteilung wurde. Im Jahre 1806 wurde er zum Senator ernannt und in den Grafenstand erhoben, wandte sich später jedoch von Napoleon ab. Er stimmte für die Entlassung Napoleons und der Rückkehr der Bourbonen zu. Nachdem er sich mit der Restauration verbündet hatte, wurde er 1814 zum Pair und 1817 zum Marquis ernannt.

Zeitgenössische braune Halblederbände mit Buntpapierbezug und Lederecken. (Papier leicht stockfleckig).. Seine Übersetzung zum "bürgerlichen Gesetzbuch Napoleons I.", so Erhard im Vorwort, erscheint später als angekündigt, weil er den bislang fünf erschienenen Übersetzungen nicht einfach eine sechste anreihen wollte. Dies wäre jedoch schon deshalb nicht geschehen, weil er eine Reihe von Übersetzungsfehlern bei seinen Vorgängern entdeckt habe. Bei schwierigen Stellen habe er deshalb Anmerkungen hinzugefügt. Daneben fügte Erhard Parallelstellen aus dem Handelsgesetzbuch und der Gerichtsordnung hinzu. Besonders wichtig ist die Hinzufügung der Vergleichung des Napoleonischen Gesetzbuches mit dem Römischen Rechte und den älteren Französischen Gewohnheitsrechten und Gesetzen, die der französische Jurist Dard angefertigt hat. Die Anmerkungen von Dard hat nicht Erhard, sondern ein gewisser Demuth übersetzt. Die zweite Ausgabe erschien im Jahre 1811, mit einem ergänzenden Supplementsband. - Erhard (1759-1813) studierte ab 1778 an der Universität Leipzig und promovierte 1782 zum Doktor der Rechte. Anschließend wurde er zum Oberhofgerichts-Advokaten ernannt und nahm 1783 eine Stelle als Beisitzer im Niederlausitzer Landgericht an. Im Jahre 1787 wurde er zum Extraordinarius und schließlich 1793 zum Ordinarius für Rechte an der Universität Leipzig ernannt. Seine juristischen Publikationen bezogen sich vor allem auf das sächsische und preußische Recht, herausragend etwa der von Carmer angeregte "Versuch einer Kritik des allgemeinen Gesetzbuchs für die preußischen Staaten" (1792).

        Specimens of English Dramatic Poets

      , 1808. 1808. first edition. A Handsome Root & Son BindingCelebrating the Beauty of Elizabethan Poetry[ROOT & SON, binders]. LAMB, Charles. Specimens of English Dramatic Poets Who Lived About the Time of Shakespeare. With Notes. London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, 1808. First edition. Octavo (7 1/8 x 4 1/4 in; 181 x 108 mm). xii, 484 pp.Designed and bound c. 1920 by Root & Son (stamp-signed) in full brown crushed morocco with double fillet and a secondary gilt-rolled frame with gilt corner-pieces and inlaid dots in green. Gilt decorated compartments. Top edge gilt. A fine copy Elizabethan poets whose work is represented here include Thomas Sackville; Thomas Kyd; Christopher Marlowe; Thomas Decker; Ben Jonson; William Rowley; John Fletcher; Francis Beaumont; etc.Charles Lamb was born in London in 1775. He studied at Christ's Hospital where he formed a lifelong friendship with Samuel Taylor Coleridge. When Lamb was twenty years old he suffered a period of insanity and was confined to a psychiatric hospital. His sister, Mary Ann Lamb, had similar issues and in 1796 murdered her mother in a fit of madness. Mary was confined to an asylum but was eventually released into the care of her brother. Lamb became friends in London with a group of young writers who favored political reform including Percy Bysshe Shelley, William Hazlitt, Henry Brougham, Lord Byron, Thomas Barnes and Leigh Hunt. In 1796 Lamb contributed four sonnets to Coleridge's Poems on Various Subjects (1796). This was followed by Blank Verse (1798) and Pride's Cure (1802). Lamb worked for the East India Company in London but managed to contribute articles to several journals and newspapers including London Magazine, The Morning Chronicle, Morning Post and the The Quarterly Review. He is best known for his pseudonymous essays for London Magazine, collected and published as Essays of Elia (1823), and for the popular evergreen Tales From Shakespeare (1807), his collaboration with his sister. The volume under notice went a long way to popularizing Shakespeare's contemporaries. He died in 1834. The London bindery of W. Root & Son consistently turned-out excellent work, both on fine bindings as here, and on trade bindings and sets. Packer lists the firm in business in Red Lion Square in 1899-1901, and the December 1942 issue of The Rotarian notes with regret that W. Root had been bombed out (uprooted?) of their premises on Paternaster Row during the 1941 Blitz.

Being the substance of the Earl of Chesterfield's letters, to his son, Philip Stanhope, Esq. (1774), aka Letters to His Son on the Art of Becoming a Man of the World and a Gentleman, which contained passages as below:"I would heartily wish that you may often be seen to smile, but never heard to laugh while you live. Frequent and loud laughter is the characteristic of folly and ill-manners; it is the manner in which the mob express their silly joy at silly things; and they call it being merry. In my mind there is nothing so illiberal, and so ill-bred, as audible laughter. I am neither of a melancholy nor a cynical disposition, and am as willing and as apt to be pleased as anybody; but I am sure that since I have had the full use of my reason nobody has ever heard me laugh." Though well-written, witty, and wise, paragraphs like the above by Philip Dormer Stanhope Lord Chesterfield, 4th Earl of Chesterfield (1694-1773), beg to be lampooned and Rowlandson has a field day doing so.The Plates:1.
