TRADE CATALOGUE
[Birmingham, 1810. Oblong folio. (10 1/4 x 16 3/8 inches). 155 engraved plates on 87 sheets (18 folding; 64 sheets with engravings recto and verso). Most with contemporary manuscript pricing. Contemporary inscription "Book N29373" on inside front wrapper. Contemporary marbled wrappers, rebacked with leather. Housed in a cloth chemise and morocco backed marbled paper covered slipcase. Provenance: Richards (small early blindstamp on inside front wrapper) A very rare Regency-era trade catalogue of Sheffield plate. The catalogue is engraved throughout and is entirely on wove paper; two of the folding plates, both of which would appear to be inserted at an early date, are on paper watermarked 1813, thus dating the catalogue to circa 1810. Among the cruet, serving pieces and other items noted above, two are particularly noteworthy: a cheese toaster and a telescoping candlestick. A pencil notation suggests that the maker was Waterhouse & Ryland; many of the designs, however, resemble those of Roberts and Boulton as well. It is suggested in Bradbury, that the extant catalogues contained designs from a variety of makers, intended to be shown to the public by a retailer; this further explains why the the names of the makers of the articles have purposely been omitted, the prices added in manuscript and the haphazard plate numbering. Although no engravers's names are identified, it is believed that the manufacturers themselves produced such plates, utilizing the talents of their own craftsmen, who by their very occupation would have been highly skilled at etching … [Click Below for Full Description]

Verdun, France, 1810-1813. Wraps. Very Good. Thirteen fine original watercolors of Verdun. Oblong, 16.5 by 26 cm. According to an inscription on the first leaf, these paintings were done by a friend of John Spencer Stanhope while both were prisoners-of-war in Verdun. The identity of the artist, alas, is unknown otherwise. Stanhope (1787-1873) was indeed a prisoner-of-war in Verdun between 1810 and 1813. His son, John Roddam Spencer Stanhope, was a well-known Pre-Raphaelite artist. This album captures the lovely architecture of Verdun, an ancient yet still small city, as well as the countryside surrounding the city, with its panoramic views. From the paintings one would have no inkling there was a war going on. Verdun was the site of battle in the late 18th century and infamously during the First World War. During the time this album was done, though, it was not a battleground, and the wide variety of views created by the artist suggest that as a prisoner-of-war he was allowed some freedom to paint away from the prison. The style is both slightly naive yet also quite polished, and it is no overstatement to describe the paintings as simply exquisite. Condition: a few minor chips, both of the cover and a few of the leaves. Scattered light foxing, and some light soiling besides.

Henrietta Maria Bowdler, her great friend, introduced her to Elizabeth Hamilton, who greatly admired her. Hannah More praised her in Coelebs in Search of a Wife (1804). In her short life, she completed a translation of Job, and translated F. G. Klopstock's memoirs for publication." (Michael R. Thompson). The Klopstock was the companion volume to the "Fragments", a separate text not present here.

[Zoological Illustrations].
1810. No date [circa 1810-1825]. 7 original watercolors on individual sheets (c.180 x 220 mm), handwritten notes in ink on versos recording the name of the animal in English, French and Latin, and, in some cases, comments on its appearance and habits, matted alike. Marginal browning, seemingly caused by the mats, images lightly toned, very good. § Apparently amateur copies of (or possibly original sketches for?) illustrations from natural history colorplate periodicals. Three of the paintings relate to identified engravings: (1) Striped-cheeked hummingbird, c.f. The naturalists' miscellany... Vol.13 (facing G2), (2) Tamatia macrorhychos (Greater pied puff-bird), c.f. Swainson's Zoological Illustrations... Vol II 1821-22, Plate 99. and (3) Fringilla oryzivora (Paddy bird, Rice bird, or Java Sparrow). c.f. Swainson's Zoological Illustrations... Vol.III , 1822-3, Plate 156. No published images corresponding to the remaining four have yet been identified; unlike the three paintings above, each of these has an inked number above the image and more extensive handwritten notes on the verso: they are (with their numbering): [1.] Toco Toucan, [47.] Bradypus Sloth, [52.] Blue tailed crow, [58.] Nine banded armadillo. The sheet bearing the Toucan contains a fleur-de-lis watermark dated 1813. The quality of the seven images varies from somewhat crude to quite skilled. Intriguing.

1810. London: William Miller, 1810-1812: John Murray, 1816: Longman, Hurst, Rees. Orme, and Brown, 1819. 4 vols., 4to (285 220 mm., untrimmed), 324; 328; 313; 316 leaves paginated as in Windle and Pippin. With 14 mezzotint portraits, 24 other engraved plates, numerous engravings and illustrations in the text, some in red and black, titles printed in red and black. Some occasional spotting and dust soiling in text, and some offsetting of plates onto the text as always. Full red hardgrain morocco extra, covers richly gilt, gilt backstrips with green and black labels, joints a bit scuffed and upper joint of vol. 1 repaired. Generally a very good set with distinguished provenance. With the index in a separate volume. § First edition thus. "Dibdin's voluptuously copious account of stories and characters connected with book production, book trading and book collecting, which inspired generations of bibliophiles and bibliographers. The work came as an enlargement of Joseph Ames's account of printing in England from 1471 to 1600 (published 1749). Ames's intuition was the prime importance of first-hand knowledge of books, the primacy of the title-page on printed lists and catalogues. Dibdin adopted this innovative rigor and endowed it with his own taste for anecdote and romance. The compelling quality of his writings was acutely felt by Isaac D'Israeli, who, on receiving a copy of Dibdin's Bibliomania, wrote to him: "I have not yet recovered from the delightful delirium into which your Bibliomania has completely thrown me." A major player in the process of rationalisation of the boo … [Click Below for Full Description]

With an Appendix Containing the French Patent Law, Forms, &c. Boston: Published by D. Mallory & Co., 1810. [2], [ix]-xxxix, [41]-229, [1] pp. Complete. Octavo (8-1/4" x 5-1/4"). Later buckram, gilt title to spine. Light browning to text, faint dampspotting and foxing to a few leaves, faint later library stamp to title page, repair to its upper corner. * First edition of the first American book on the subject. A true "Renaissance man," Fessenden was a lawyer, poet, journalist, inventor and venture capitalist who promoted various inventions. He was the holder of two patents for heating devices. He promoted "scientific" techniques in The New England Farmer, a journal he founded. Also a prominent satirist, he wrote numerous pieces under the pseudonym Christopher Caustic for one of his other journals, The Terrible Tractoration. His treatise contains summaries of the relevant statutes, digests of leading cases (such as Whitney v. Carter over the invention of the cotton gin) and comparisons between the patent laws of the Unites States, Great Britain and France. The appendix contains the United States Patent Law of 1800, a bilingual collection of French laws and a set of French recommendations for improvements in the laws of the United States.

Verdun, France: , 1810-1813. Verdun, France, 1810-1813. Wraps. Very Good. Thirteen fine original watercolors of Verdun. Oblong, 16.5 by 26 cm. According to an inscription on the first leaf, these paintings were done by a friend of John Spencer Stanhope while both were prisoners-of-war in Verdun. The identity of the artist, alas, is unknown otherwise. Stanhope (1787-1873) was indeed a prisoner-of-war in Verdun between 1810 and 1813. His son, John Roddam Spencer Stanhope, was a well-known Pre-Raphaelite artist. This album captures the lovely architecture of Verdun, an ancient yet still small city, as well as the countryside surrounding the city, with its panoramic views. From the paintings one would have no inkling there was a war going on. Verdun was the site of battle in the late 18th century and infamously during the First World War. During the time this album was done, though, it was not a battleground, and the wide variety of views created by the artist suggest that as a prisoner-of-war he was allowed some freedom to paint away from the prison. The style is both slightly naive yet also quite polished, and it is no overstatement to describe the paintings as simply exquisite. Condition: a few minor chips, both of the cover and a few of the leaves. Scattered light foxing, and some light soiling besides.
