By Geoffrey Gambado [pseud. for William Henry Bunbury]. Published in London; Printed by W. Nicholoson for W. Baynes in 1808. 3rd edition. description continues below the picture- - - - DISCUSSION: William Henry Bunbury [1750-1811] was an English gentleman, army officer, court figure and popular caricaturist (popular in part because, unlike some other artists, the figures in his caricatures were not drawn in the likenesses of his acquaintances and friends). His work mainly reflected his own life and experiences and those of his circle- military life, the Grand Tour of Europe, and, in this case, horse-riding. He counted such notables as Joshua Reynolds, Oliver Goldsmith and David Garrick amongst his friends, and Horace Walpole is said to have compared him to William Hogarth. DESCRIPTION: Hardcover. 10.5"x13", xxiv + 36 pages, plus 12 hand-colored plates [and] xvii + 81 pages, plus 17 hand-colored plates. Bound in full red leather with giltwork, marbled endpapers.

Angus, Charles (defendant).
Liverpool: Printed by William Jones, [1808]. 8vo (21 cm, 8.25"). [2] ff., 288 pp. Murder by poison seems to be a perpetually fascinating topic for the lay, the medical professional, and Agatha Christie — and this trial of Angus for using that method of doing in Miss Burns is no exception. Its record was taken in shorthand by William Jones, Jun., and contains => important material relating to medical jurisprudence and forensic medicine. The trial was a sensation: Angus, a Scots merchant and slave-trader in Liverpool, was charged with the murder of his children's governess, Margaret Burns, who was also his wife's half-sister. The case presented more than a few bizarre features: a corpse with a hole in its stomach, a baby who disappeared, a ghastly surgical instrument with a catalogue of deadly purposes, conflicting medical evidence, and a poison never identified. Binding: Circa-1865 half-black calf with green marbled paper sides, spine with gilt-stamped red leather label, gilt rules to form compartments, and blind-stamped center device in five compartments. Provenance: Contemporary signature on title-page of James Kendrick; embossed ownership stamp of J.H. Williams, rector of Llangadwaladr; bookseller's label of Wildy & Sons, London; late 19th- or early 20th-century armorial leather bookplate of Alexander MacGregor; most recently in the collection of Robert Sadoff, M.D. Binding as above, edges rubbed, small scuffs. The endpapers, curiously, appear to have been marbled over typeprint. => Very good.

Wordsworth, William
Grasmere: June 20 [1808]. 2 pp; addressed on intergral blank; wax seal. 12mo. On the orphans of George and Sarah Green. "I have just received your obliging letter informing me of the Collection which by your means has been made for our Grasmere Orphans. I thank you sincerely for your kind and successful exertions in their behalf.... It will be a satisfaction to you to hear, that we have raised as much money as we think we shall have occasion for, and that there is every prospect that it will be of substantial service to the Children. ... My sister joins with me in respectful remembrances to yourself and his Lordship...." The Grasmere orphans were the eight children of local cottagers George and Sarah Green, who died on March 19 in an accident on the snow-covered fells between Langdale and Easedale. One of the children, Sally, was already in the Wordsworth's service, and the Wordsworths undertook a relief effort on the children's behalf. "The involvement of the adult Wordsworths was equal and complementary: William organizing behind the scenes with an appeal to well-off friends, Dorothy writing her moving account A Narrative Concerning George and Sarah Green to raise funds, and Mary heading a committee of local ladies distributing those funds. The plight of the orphaned children brought out what was most generous and community-minded in the early-orphaned inhabitants of Dove Cottage." (Oxford Companion to Wordsworth, p 56). Wordsworth wrote a ballad-elegy for the couple, which begins: "Who weeps for strangers? Many wept/For George and Sarah Green;/Wept for that pair's unhapp … [Click Below for Full Description]

Taylor, Joseph; William Hunter, editor
Calcutta: printed by T. Hubbard, at the Hindoostanee Press, 1808. First edition. Two volumes. 4to, 29 x 21 cm; pp.[iv], 745; [ii], 844. Text in English, Urdu, and Devanagari characters. Slightly later calf, spines gilt, with raised bands; a few pinprick wormholes to spines, top of spine of second volume repaired, headband replaced; occasional toning; a very good set. One of the earliest Urdu-English dictionaries, whose text would provide the basis for Shakespear's popular dictionary, with pleasing provenance. The letter to Richy from Edward Roer, Librarian of the Asiatic Society of Bengal, explains that Roer could not supply all the books requested and advises Ricky to approach the libraries of the College of Fort William and the Sanskrit College, Calcutta. Joseph Taylor joined the East India Company's 1st Bengal Artillery in 1783 and was promoted captain in 1804, one of the earliest soldier-linguists who made such immense contribution to the British study of Indian languages. Whilst compiling this dictionary he was Agent to the Gunpowder Agency at Allahabad, long a centre of Urdu and Hindi scholarship. Taylor's work was edited and enlarged by the surgeon and orientalist William Hunter, Examiner in Persian and Hindustani at the College of Fort William and sometime Secretary of the Asiatic Society of Bengal.

Wilkins, Charles
London: printed for the author by W. Bulmer and Co, 1808. First edition. 4to, 29 x 23 cm; pp.xx, 662; 5 engraved plates. A very good copy bound in modern half calf over marbled boards; half-title toned. April 1839 catalogue of "Valuable Works relating to India" issued by Wm. H. Allen & Co. tipped in at rear. The first grammar of Sanskrit printed in Britain. Wilkins began work on the text at Benares in 1783, but the bulk was compiled after his return to England in 1786, owing to ill-health. In 1795 he prepared a new font of devanagari types to print the text, and had produced proofs of the first sixteen pages, when his home burnt to the ground, and he abandoned the idea of producing a Sanskrit grammar. Subsequently, Wilkins was persuaded to resume the project to meet the demands of students at the newly opened East India College. Wilkins, like Nathaniel Halhed, was a protégé of the Governor-General Warren Hastings, and benefited from Hastings' drive to promote the study of Indian languages amongst Company men. He recognized the advantage of Sanskrit in studying modern Indian languages: "He who knows Sanskrit has already acquired a knowledge of one half of almost every vernacular language of India; while he who remains ignorant of it, can never possess a perfect and critical understanding of any, though he may attain a certain proficiency in the practical use of them." A pioneer in European Sanskrit study, he was the first Englishman to acquire a comprehensive knowledge of Sanskrit. In a career of some sixty years, Wilkins demonstrated remarkable versatility as Sanskrit … [Click Below for Full Description]

Angus, Charles (defendant).
Printed by William Jones, 1808. Murder by poison seems to be a perpetually fascinating topic for the lay, the medical professional, and Agatha Christie -- and this trial of Angus for using that method of doing in Miss Burns is no exception. Its record was taken in shorthand by William Jones, Jun., and contains => important material relating to medical jurisprudence and forensic medicine. The trial was a sensation: Angus, a Scots merchant and slave-trader in Liverpool, was charged with the murder of his children's governess, Margaret Burns, who was also his wife's half-sister. The case presented more than a few bizarre features: a corpse with a hole in its stomach, a baby who disappeared, a ghastly surgical instrument with a catalogue of deadly purposes, conflicting medical evidence, and a poison never identified. Binding: Circa-1865 half-black calf with green marbled paper sides, spine with gilt-stamped red leather label, gilt rules to form compartments, and blind-stamped center device in five compartments. Provenance: Contemporary signature on title-page of James Kendrick; embossed ownership stamp of J.H. Williams, rector of Llangadwaladr; bookseller's label of Wildy & Sons, London; late 19th- or early 20th-century armorial leather bookplate of Alexander MacGregor; most recently in the collection of Robert Sadoff, M.D.

By Geoffrey Gambado [pseud. for William Henry Bunbury]. Published in London; Printed by W. Nicholoson for W. Baynes in 1808. 3rd edition. description continues below the picture- - - - DISCUSSION: William Henry Bunbury [1750-1811] was an English gentleman, army officer, court figure and popular caricaturist (popular in part because, unlike some other artists, the figures in his caricatures were not drawn in the likenesses of his acquaintances and friends). His work mainly reflected his own life and experiences and those of his circle- military life, the Grand Tour of Europe, and, in this case, horse-riding. He counted such notables as Joshua Reynolds, Oliver Goldsmith and David Garrick amongst his friends, and Horace Walpole is said to have compared him to William Hogarth.

Rare seconde édition en partie orginale et très remaniée par l'auteur. Senancour ayant toujours eu l'habitude de corriger ses textes et d'en donner des versions à chaque fois différentes. Relativement oublié de nos jours, l'ouvrage eut son importance dans le mouvement philosophique français du début du XIXe siècle. Dans un style d'un élégante simplicité il étudie, sans idées préconçues, l'amour et les notions qui s'y rattachent comme le plaisir, la chasteté, l'adultère... La cause du divorce, en particulier, y est plaidée avec talent. A tel point que sous l'aspect de la morale ont peut même le considérer comme précurseur du socialisme, ce qui pour l'émigré qu'il était est assez surprenant. ¶ Escoffier, Le Mouvement romantique (pour la 1ère et 4e édit. n°163 et 1065 ) - Quérard Fr. litt.

Walter Scott
Edinburgh: J. Ballantyne and Co, 1808. 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 fiancé, 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 and first impression. Publishers advertisments to the rear. Set in 1644 during the English Civil War, the poem exudes a 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Walter Scott
Edinburgh: J. Ballantyne and Co, 1808. 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 fiancé, 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 and first impression. Publishers advertisments to the rear. Set in 1644 during the English Civil War, the poem exudes a 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]
