        Twelve Perspective Views of the Exterior and Interior Parts of the Metropolitical Church of York; Accompanied by two Ichnographic Plates, and an Historical Account.

      - London: the author, 1809. First edition (pp. 9). Large folio (40 cm) in half leather over marbled paper, gilt titles and decoration, marbled endpapers and edges; list of subscribers. Plates, uncoloured as issued, include folding double-size Ground Plan of York Cathedral (opens to 70 cm) with scale of dates and dimensions facing; capitals of the columns in the Crypt; twelve exterior and interior views of the Minster including Northwest Aspect, West Front, Nave, South Wing of the Transept, South Front, Transept from Southwest Angle, Chapter House Interior, Chapter House Exterior, the Choir, North Aisle of Choir, Chapel of Mary, East Front; plate impressions about 38 cm x 30 cm. Nine pages of historical and architectural commentary by Wild. This is Wild’s second collection of cathedral views, the first being a collection of views of Canterbury. Charles Wild (1781- 1835), an accomplished watercolourist, made “his mark, exhibiting 165 architectural subjects between 1809 and 1833. These comprised internal and external views of the great English cathedrals and, after 1821, the churches, first of northern France and subsequently of Belgium and of Germany. [They] combine a close attention to architectural detail with an attractive picturesque treatment. Beginning with Twelve Perspective Views of the Exterior and Interior Parts of Canterbury, in 1807, he produced a series of aquatints—sometimes coloured—of English cathedrals, which were praised for their accuracy. The Canterbury series was followed by York in 1809, Chester in 1813, Lichfield in 1813, Lincoln in 1819, and Worcester in 1823” (ODNB). Spine skilfully repaired, usual wear to corners and covers; binding firm; text clean and bright throughout. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An Essay on the Principle of Population; or a View of its Past and present Effects on Human Happiness; with an Inquiry into our Prospects Respecting the Future Removal or Mitigation of the Evils which it Occasions

      Printed and Published by Roger Chew Weightman, Washington City 1809 - First American, from the Third London edition. The third edition contained substantial changes to the fourth and sixth chapters of the second volume. This was the first appearance of any of Malthus' works in America. The first edition was published in 1803. 2 vols. 8vo. "Malthus' law, that population increases at a greater rate than the means of subsistence; was one of the first and still one of the most widely debated of modern economic theories. The work aroused a storm of controversy since Malthus held that checks on the growth of population would be necessary, a theory which is still not finally extinguished. Malthus has exercised a strong influence, not merely in economics, but in the whole realm of social theory" (PMM). At the time of this writing, Britain was suffering under the problems of poverty, unemployment, population and diseases, taxes, many the effects of the Industrial Revolution. The French Revolution, combined with these other factors, was causing unrest among the lower classes. In America, there was a surplus of raw materials and a shortage of manpower which gave the Americans a different point of view on Mathusian theories though Chapter Four pertains specifically to the American Indians.

An excellent reading or reference set, not for the overly discerning collector however. Could easily be rebound. Appears to have been printed in New York. Howes describes this rare work as "Venomously critical; said to have been suppressed" due to its scathing description of Jefferson's years in public office and his foreign policy once president. A book with a curious history. It was copyrighted by "Thomas Hall" but contains neither the author's nor the printer's name. Tompkins 27: "Suppressed by the printers on account of the libels it contained. Parton calls them 'two octavo volumes of vituperation.' " It is said that the printer, fearing the libel law, submitted the book to a lawyer, Samuel M. Hopkins of Auburn, who, after reading 20 or 30 pages, reported that he found an average of a libel per page. Howes C164; Sabin 11004; Shaw & Shoemaker 17514.

        [A Bound Collection of 224 South American Imprints, printed in Buenos Aires Between 1807 and 1809]

      Buenos Aires, 1809. Small quarto. Three bound volumes, plus 9 unbound or disbound pamphlets, for a total of 224 separate imprints (including one Rio de Janiero imprint, two Spanish imprints, and two Buenos Aires duplicates). All items but one (the Rio de Janiero imprint at the beginning of the first volume, printed in Portuguese and French) printed in Spanish. Contemporary vellum, original leather ties, contemporary ink manuscript titles on spines. Vellum slightly soiled. In fine condition.An extraordinary archive of Buenos Aires imprints, composed primarily of newsletters printed at the Imprenta Ni?os Expositos between June 1807 and November 1809. The collection represents over one quarter of the entire recorded output of the Buenos Aires press during this period and constitutes a major archive of news stories extracted from Spanish, Portuguese, English, and Brazilian sources and printed for Argentine readers during a pivotal period in the regions history. The news accounts, together with a significant number of manifestos, poems, proclamations, and decrees, cover the invasions and defeats of the British at Montevideo and Buenos Aires in 1807, the collapse of the Spanish monarchy in 1808, Spanish efforts against Napoleonic rule, and the battles and effects of the Napoleonic wars in Europe and the Americas - crucial events in the formation of Argentine self-determination and eventual independence from Spain. The first and third volumes of the collection are largely devoted to newsletters, while the second volume contains a number of seperate pamphlets, manifestos, and political statements.Virtually all of the imprints in the collection are listed in Guillermo Furlong's authoritative Historia y Bibliografía de las Primeras Impentas Rioplatenses . Exceptions include an anti-Napoleonic manifesto printed in Rio de Janeiro (Volume 1, item 1), two pamphlets printed for the Spanish government-in-exile at Cadiz (Volume 2, items 84 and 89), and two items not bearing a publisher's imprint, but for which context, paper, and printing style all suggest a Buenos Aries origin (Volume 1, item 56, and Volume 3, item 71). All imprints are listed below (unless otherwise noted, titles are caption titles, the format of the leaves is quarto, and the printing location is Buenos Aires). All Buenos Aires imprints have their Furlong citation as well.

        Voyages dans l'Am?rique M?ridionale, par Don F?lix De Azara ... depuis 1781 jusqu'en 1801

      Paris: Dentu, 1809. 5 volumes (text: 4 volumes, 8vo [7 3/4 x 4 7/8 inches]; atlas: folio [14 x 10 1/4 inches]). Text: lx,389; [4],562pp. plus three folding tables; [4],ii,479; [4],380pp. Atlas: [4]pp. Twenty-five engraved maps and plates. Atlas uncut. Text: contemporary tree calf, covers bordered in gilt, flat spine in compartments with red and black morocco lettering pieces in the second and fourth, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers. Atlas: publisher's blue paper boards, printed paper label on the upper cover. The preferred First French Edition, with additional notes by Cuvier and Sonnini: the atlas here uncut and in original boards. An important work by Spanish naturalist Felix de Azara (1746-1821). Azara, a military officer, was part of a delegation to settle the boundary dispute between Spain and Portugal in the Rio de la Plata region. He was in the region for twenty years, from 1781 to 1801, documenting the wildlife, natives, and geography of the area. This work is the culmination of his time there, published upon his return to Europe.The atlas includes folding maps of South America, Paraguay and the Province of Buenos Aires, the Government of Buenos Aires, the Government of Paraguay and part of Chaco, and the Province of Chiquitos and Government of Matagroso and of Cuyaba; eight city plans and views, including a double-page plan and view of Buenos Aires, seven plates depicting animals, and four plates depicting birds.First published in Spanish in Madrid between 1802 and 1805, the work provides an important contribution to natural history, describing over 400 species of birds, many for the first time (see vols. 3 and 4 of the text). Interestingly, Darwin would read Azara's work following his return from the second voyage and refer to it within his Voyage of the Beagle. Palau 20975; Sabin 2541; Field 62; Wood, p. 214.

        [Two Pencil Sketches by William Daniell, after Architect George Dance, showing the artists William Hodges and Samuel Pepys Cockerell]

      1809. Each pencil sketch on a sheet 10 x 8 inches. Matted to 15? x 13? inches. Minor toning and soiling. Very good. One great landscape artist portrays another. Two pencil drawings by landscape painter and engraver William Daniell, after drawings by George Dance, possibly executed around the time of Daniell's engraving of the portraits for the work A Collection of Portraits Sketched from the Life since the year 1793 by George Dance ...(London, 1809-1814). Daniell (1769-1837) was an accomplished landscape artist, etcher and engraver. He traveled with his uncle, renowned landscape painter Thomas Daniell, to India (1786-1793), where he assisted his uncle and developed his own skills. He later produced many magnificent views of locales around the globe, particularly of India.In addition to his well-known landscape works, he also engraved and published a series of portraits drawn by architect George Dance (1741-1825), some of which were published in a two volume work in 1809-1814. Late in his career, Dance turned his hand to other art forms, including music and chalk profile portraits of friends and acquaintances. The two subjects depicted here are fellow artists - Samuel Pepys Cockerell was a fellow architect, and William Hodges was a painter, particularly noted for being the artist on Captain James Cook's second voyage. Each volume of the work published thirty-six portraits with descriptive text about the subject. William Hodges is depicted in the second volume. The engraved portrait faces right, while this sketch faces left, making it a mirror image for printing.The Yale Center for British Art holds not only the published work but also a volume of proof prints, each labeled in manuscript, with the manuscript title "A Series of Portraits drawn by George Dance Esq. and Engraved by Wm. Daniell." This proof volume is comprised only of portraits, with no text, and includes a further eighty-five engravings beyond the seventy-two published by Daniell in 1809-1814. This is particularly interesting in light of the fact that while the portrait of William Hodges appears in the published work, Samuel Pepys Cockerell does not - though he is among the proof prints.Since Dance's original drawings were done in chalk, which is a much looser medium than line-engraving, it is possible that Daniell created these drawings to provide himself with a more defined and delineated image from which to create his engraving. These drawings therefore provided an interesting and important step in the engraving process.

        A View near the Roode Sand Pass at the Cape of Good Hope

      London: William Miller, 1809. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by J. Bluck after Henry Salt, on wove paper. A lyrical South African view from the 'Roode Zand' (Red Sand) Pass inland from the Cape of Good Hope. Henry Salt, artist, traveller, diplomat and collector of antiquities, was born at Lichfield, Staffordshire, England 14 June 1780. He was destined to be a portrait-painter, and on leaving school was taught drawing by Glover, the watercolour-painter of Lichfield. In 1797 he went to London and became a pupil of Joseph Farington, R.A., and (in 1800) of John Hoppner, R.A. The turning point in his career was 3 June 1802, when Salt left London for an eastern tour with George, viscount Valentia (afterwards Lord Mountnorris), whom he accompanied as secretary and draughtsman. He visited the Cape, India, Sri Lanka, and (in 1805) Abyssinia, returning to England on 26 Oct. 1806. He made many drawings, some of which served to illustrate Lord Valentia's Voyages and Travels to India , published in 1809.The present image is from a work titled Twenty-four Views in St. Helena, the Cape, India, Ceylon, the Red Sea, Abyssinia and Egyp t, published by William Miller, with hand-coloured aquatints by D. Havell and J. Bluck from Salt's own drawings. The originals of all these drawings were retained by Lord Valentia, who also retained the ownership of the copper plates after Salt's death. The format and style of presentation of the plates is similar to Thomas and William Daniell's great work, Oriental Scenery (1795-1808), and displays great artistry by both Salt and his engravers.Abbey Travel II 515 no.3.

        A Bound Collection of 224 South American Imprints, printed in Buenos Aires Between 1807 and 1809]

      Buenos Aires 1809 - Three bound volumes, plus 9 unbound or disbound pamphlets, for a total of 224 separate imprints (including one Rio de Janiero imprint, two Spanish imprints, and two Buenos Aires duplicates). All items but one (the Rio de Janiero imprint at the beginning of the first volume, printed in Portuguese and French) printed in Spanish. Contemporary vellum, original leather ties, contemporary ink manuscript titles on spines. Vellum slightly soiled. In fine condition. An extraordinary archive of Buenos Aires imprints, composed primarily of newsletters printed at the Imprenta Niños Expositos between June 1807 and November 1809. The collection represents over one quarter of the entire recorded output of the Buenos Aires press during this period and constitutes a major archive of news stories extracted from Spanish, Portuguese, English, and Brazilian sources and printed for Argentine readers during a pivotal period in the regions history. The news accounts, together with a significant number of manifestos, poems, proclamations, and decrees, cover the invasions and defeats of the British at Montevideo and Buenos Aires in 1807, the collapse of the Spanish monarchy in 1808, Spanish efforts against Napoleonic rule, and the battles and effects of the Napoleonic wars in Europe and the Americas - crucial events in the formation of Argentine self-determination and eventual independence from Spain. The first and third volumes of the collection are largely devoted to newsletters, while the second volume contains a number of seperate pamphlets, manifestos, and political statements. Virtually all of the imprints in the collection are listed in Guillermo Furlong's authoritative Historia y Bibliografía de las Primeras Impentas Rioplatenses . Exceptions include an anti-Napoleonic manifesto printed in Rio de Janeiro (Volume 1, item 1), two pamphlets printed for the Spanish government-in-exile at Cadiz (Volume 2, items 84 and 89), and two items not bearing a publisher's imprint, but for which context, paper, and printing style all suggest a Buenos Aries origin (Volume 1, item 56, and Volume 3, item 71). All imprints are listed below (unless otherwise noted, titles are caption titles, the format of the leaves is quarto, and the printing location is Buenos Aires). All Buenos Aires imprints have their Furlong citation as well. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Duke of York's Letter to Mrs Clarke

      London: S.W. Fores, 1809. First edition. 15 x 9-3/4 in. Old folds, awkwardly trimmed, else fine. First edition. 15 x 9-3/4 in. The letter is a satire on the domestic affairs of the much maligned Duke of York. Having negotiated the cessation of their relations (and her silence) with an annual pension, Frederick abruptly cancelled it in 1808. It was a plan poorly thought through and Mrs Clarke was detemined to get revenge. The Duke's position was weakened further once rumours began to spread that Clarke had used her position as mistress to secure commissions for money. In later January 1809 a motion was brought before the house and a 12 day inquiry resulted. Clarke was interviewed and delighted in revealing her complicity with the case. Although Frederick's guilt could not be fully proven, parliament would not grant his complete exoneration and he resigned his post as Commander-in-Chief of the the British Army on 18 March 1809. Rebus letters have been extant since the middle ages when they were often used to denote heraldry. As we know them, they refer to the substitution of pictograms (purely for their phonetic value) for conventially spelled words - a sort of visual pun. Published at the height of the scandal, this one commences: "Ho[yew] [can] [eye] x[pea]ress s[yew]ff[eye]c[eye][hen]tly [toe] my s[wheat]est, my darli[hen]g L[eye]fe, the d[light] [witch] her d[hay]rli[hen]g, her [pea]rety [letter]..." According to BM Satires, Charles Williams is the creator of this work. Williams drew in the fashion of James Gillray and was chief caricaturist for the publisher S.W. Fores. He worked with George Cruikshank on The Every-Day Book and also illustrated Dr Syntax in Paris (1820). Williams is also known to be the first to caricature Arthur Wellesley, the 1st Duke of Wellington. BM Satires 11228
