      London: Published at R. Ackermann's Repository of Arts, 101 Strand, 1810. Mezzotint. Printed on wove paper. Lettered proof, state ii/iii. In excellent condition, with the exception of six skillfully mended tears on bottom margin, not extending near image. One small tear on bottom margin. Image size: 13 5/8 x 17 1/8 inches. A charming proof mezzotint by Charles Turner after James Barenger depicting a pair of widgeons. James Barenger was born into an artistic family. His father exhibited paintings of insects at the Royal Academy between 1793 and 1799, and his mother was the sister of William Woollett, the celebrated engraver. Barenger was well known as an animal painter, exhibiting at the Royal Academy between 1807 and 1831. He was a keen sportsman and had a natural eye for detail, which brought an appealing realism to his studies. From 1815 onwards he exhibited the majority of his pictures at Mr. Tattersall's auction rooms in London, where they were well received by a diverse audience. Although Mr. Tattersall was his primary patron, Barenger earned a number of commissions from the Earl of Derby, The Duke of Grafton, and the Marquess of Londonderry. His work was widely engraved by some of the most fashionable engravers of the day and his attractive images remain highly desirable to sporting collectors. This strong image of two widgeons is from a series of fourteen prints depicting English game birds. The series, which was mezzotinted by Charles Turner and published by Rudolph Ackermann, is entitled "British Feather Game" and includes images of some of the most important species of English wildfowl. Siltzer, The Story of British Sporting Prints p. 77-79 ii/iii.

Rare: Charno locates copies of the supplement only at the Newberry and University of Texas libraries. As issued. Worming in foremargin, touching two letters; repaired; small hole where paper was thin at center of leaf, taking a bit of a rule but no text. Pencilling in margins. A very good copy.

        Marie Louise Archid. d' Autriche

      A Paris chez Bance ame M. d'Estampes rue St. Denis and a' Milan chez Joseph M. et Frere Ubiemi M. d' Estampes rue des Servi n. 506 Editeurs, 1810. Stipple with engraving. Printed on laid paper. Collectors blind stamp of a bee in lower right corner of title space. In excellent condition with the exception of a creased lower right corner. Trimmed just outside platemark on all sides. Crease on right edge outside image. Some creasing and paper loss on upper right corner. Image size: 24 5/8 x 16 7/8 inches. A captivating portrait of Marie Louise of Austria, Napoleon's second wife. This is a magnificent print of Marie Louise of Austria executed in 1810, the year of her marriage to Emperor Napoleon. In 1809 when Josephine, Napoleon's first wife, failed to give him a son, the Emperor divorced her. He based this action on the spurious grounds that a parish priest had not been present at their marriage, but it was well known that this decision resulted from his desire for a male heir. Two months later he married Marie Louise, the daughter of Francis II, Emperor of Austria, and great-niece of Marie Antoinette. The marriage did nothing to end the enmity between France and Austria, but in 1811 Marie gave birth to a son, Francois Charles, who was made king of Rome. This captivating print depicts Marie at one of the most pivotal moments of her life. She is portrayed as being both innocent and magisterial, fashionable as well as reserved which results in a hauntingly beautiful portrait of this young bride. Rados's print recalls the portrait of Marie, executed in the same year, by Jean Godfrey. Both works are monumental in size and depict the young princess in a park setting. The detailing of Marie's dress and the level of intricate detail in Rados's image, is nothing short of magnificent, and his soft engraving technique gives this print a delicacy, which is immensely appealing. From the collection of William J. Latta of Philadelphia, a 19th century collector of Napoleonic material. Regency to Empire: French Printmaking 1715-1814 no. 124; Le Blanc, Manuel de L'Amateur D'Estampes III, p. 269, no. 12; Lugt, Les Marques de Collections , No. 2825.

        The Vestibule of Eloquence. Original articles, oratorical and poetical, intended as exercises in recitation, at the institution, Bedford Place, Russell Square. By . professor of the science of practice of elocution.

      Printed, for the author, by J. M?Creery, Black Horse Court . 1810 [1813] - FIRST EDITION. Library stamps on title which is a little browned and with sl. tear to inner margin, not affecting text, repaired with archival tape. Library binding: 20thC plain brown cloth. With library stamps & label. Five copies only on Copac, including BL where it is described as ?a collection of articles and exercises, separately published and variously dated, with a new general titlepage prefixed? No copy recorded on ABPC. By the radical thinker, political agitator, abolitionist, and anti-war campaigner, John Thelwall, 1764-1834. Thelwall was born in London, the son of a silk merchant. His father died when he was young, and his education was still far from complete when he was compelled to leave school and contribute to the running of the family business. He appears to have shown little desire for a career in the silk trade, and was instead drawn to literature and the arts. The French Revolution took place as he was forging his political identity, and he was immediately drawn towards the politics of upheaval, and railed against social injustice. He became a prominent dissenting voice in the late 18th century, popular with radicals for his passionate and persuasive oration. Thelwall was moved to withdraw from radical politics as a result of Pitt the Younger?s clampdown on political dissent, which came in the form of the Treason Act and Seditious Meetings Act, both given royal ascent in 1795. He judiciously chose to curb his more firebrand tendencies, moving away from direct criticism of the government, and instead lecturing on apparently safer topics such as corruption in Ancient Rome. But by 1800, unable to escape the attentions of ever-watchful government loyalists, Thelwall withdrew completely from the public eye, and instead re-invented himself as a Professor of Elocution, establishing, with the help of his wife, a small school in London. This volume, comprised of three separately published works bound together with a new titlepage and contents leaf, forms a prospectus for Thelwall?s institution, as well as providing an overview of his educational philosophy, and providing the student with readily available exercises. This is a modified version of the 1811 edition, with the Plan & Objects occupying 15pp (rather than 32pp), and signed Feb. 12th, 1813. It does not include the Terms of Instruction for House Pupils. The second part (168pp, with an 1805 titlepage, The Trident of Albion), is as the earlier edition. The third part (11pp) is formed of Thelwall?s Monody on the Right Hon. Charles James Fox (2nd edn, 1806). In addition, this volume has several further tracts bound in at the end, each with the running head Thelwall?s Selections, but with no further imprint or date. These consist of The Country Bumpkin and Razor Seller. P. Pindar. 2pp; Martial Eloquence. Henry V. before Harfleur. Shakespere [sic]. 2pp; A Consultation of Physicians. (From the New Bath Guide.) Anstey. 3pp; Sawney?s Pocket Knife. A memoir for the antiquarian society. 4pp; The Washing-Day. Mrs Barbauld. 4pp. Some of the passages have been marked in black, indicating precise points of stress or rhythm. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      [Boston?]: s.n., 1810. Broadside, 33 x 20 cm on unwatermarked laid paper. The broadside presents seven Laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, regulating inkeepers and retailers of alcohol. While the actual laws as printed are detailed and interesting, in short the laws are: suitable room and board must be available, no gambling, no dancing, no serving to drunkenness, no serving on Sunday, pay a fee for the license, and recognize the authority of the state in these matters. Imprint dates suggested by typography (per the AAS record). The extracts are from laws dating back to An act for the due regulation of licensed houses, passed Feb. 28, 1787. light toning to sheet, some leght wear to untrimmed edges.

        Broadside, begins: "Cancion Patriotica de Caracas.

      Caracas: Gallagher y Lamb Folio (31 cm; 12.25").. 1810 In the days immediately following the coup that deposed the viceroy and began the long process of independence, Andrés Bello, Venezuela's first great poet, collaborated with Cayetano Carreño, “Maestro de Capilla” of the main church of Caracas, in the composing of several “patriotic songs.” One of those early efforts became the national anthem of Venezuela, and => the premiere of this one, as unknown as that one is famous, is stirring to visualize. Beginning, “Caraqueños, otra época empieza: / De la gloria la senda se abrio,” it was sung for the first time by Cayetano Carreño himself and six other voices, the night of 23 April 1810, with the accompaniment of the military orchestra of the “Batallon Veterano.” The performance took place below the balcony on which were assembled the members of the Supreme Junta. That Bello wrote this patriotic song is known, and even the first few lines were recorded for history, but beyond that => the text is not recorded and is not found in his Obras completas or, apparently, anywhere else. In addition to the historic collaboration of Bello and Carreño, this fabulous document has the distinction of having been printed by Venezuela's first press, that of Gallagher and Lamb, which only arrived in Caracas in October of 1808, and was almost certainly printed on 24 April, the day after the hymn was first sung! Very Rare: This broadside seems to be completely unrecorded. It was unknown to both Medina and Pedro Grases. Searches of NUC, WorldCat, CCILA and COPAC fail to find any copy at all, as is the case when searching the OPACs of the national libraries of Venezuela, Colombia, Spain, France, and England. As issued. Worming in foremargin, repaired. A very good copy.

        Architectural decorations: a periodical work of original designs invented from the Egyptian, the Greek, the Roman, the Etruscan, the Attic, the Gothic &c. for exterior and interior decoration of galleries, halls, apartments &c either in painting or in relief and whatever relates to furniture

      London: published by Landi, sold by Thos. King Jun, 1810. Imperial folio. (21 x 16 inches). Engraved calligraphic title, 30 hand-coloured aquatint plates, by G. d'Argenzo after Landi, the 7th plate with a slip pasted on as part of the title. Contemporary red morocco gilt, covers with wide decorative border in gilt and blind, composed from fillets, roll tools and star tools at each corner, expertly re-backed to style in red morocco, the spine in seven compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second, the others with repeat decoration in gilt, contemporary marbled endpapers Very rare series of beautiful and unusual design treatments for buildings, rooms and accessories. Each of the five styles (Greek, Roman, Gothic, Egyptian and Chinese) are represented by six plates (numbered [1]-6; 6 unnumbered; 13-18; [1]-6; and unnumbered. Landi, according to the title, was a professor at the University of Bologna and a member of the Clementine Academy, and he issued the present work from his address at the Sablonnière Hotel in London. This work is very rare: over the past thirty years only two other copies are listed as having sold at auction (one of which included only 24 plates). Landi appears to have issued at least two other equally rare works of a similar nature ( A Collection of Designs of Architecture, Decorations and Ornaments London: 1810, and Original Designs for Exterior and Interior Decorations, London: 1810). A copy with 30 plates which sold at auction (Christies 30 October 1996, lot 85) was in a binding made up from the original boards rebacked, but was described as appearing "to be complete". The present example has the plates bound in a different order to the Christie's copy but is otherwise the same. Lowndes II, p.1305.

        [An album of twenty four views in India]

      Calcutta, 1810. Folio. (22 x 17 inches). 24 uncoloured aquatints by Moffat. Expertly bound to style using half 18th-century diced russia over marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spine divided into six compartments by double gilt fillets, lettered in gilt in the second and third compartments, modern morocco-backed cloth box, spine gilt A fine and very rare album of Moffat's highly important views of India. In its entirety, this album represents the greatest series of aquatint views ever printed in India. We have occasionally been able to offer individual prints by James Moffat, but this is the first album that we have ever encountered: collections such as this are of the greatest rarity. The twenty four plates make up three different series, and were originally assembled in about 1820. All the plates are on laid paper, the majority with watermarks including dates. The three series are probably as follows: a series published in about 1804, a second published in about 1810 and the third group of four plates are from drawings of Gaur by Henry Creighton. Little is known of Moffat. Mildred Archer writes that he 'was a Scotsman living in Calcutta from 1789 to 1815. He appears to have learnt his profession of painting and engraving in India. In 1798 and from 1805 to 1810 he produced views of towns on the Ganges and Hooghly, and in 1808 engravings from Henry Creighton's drawings of Gaur.' The plates are bound and titled as follows: 1.`View of a Mosque at Chunar,' I.Moffat. sculp.1810 (watermarked 'S.Wise & Patch 1807') 2.'View of the large pagoda at Nuddea,' drawn and engraved by I. Moffat (watermarked 'J. Whatman 1804') 3.'View of Agra, on the River Jumna,' I.Moffat, sculpt.

      [Mainly New York, Philadelphia, & Boston, 1810. Folio. Modern backstrip over contemporary marbled boards, spine label and endpapers renewed. Corners worn, boards rubbed. Minor foxing and toning, some dampstaining. The second page of "The Moment is Sad" is lacking, otherwise complete. Good. A wonderful collection of early American sheet music, mostly American imprints, most printed on two pages. The printers of these early sheets include some of the most notable names of the period, such as Hewitt, Graupner, Blake, and Paff. Dichter & Shapiro, in the Introduction to their EARLY AMERICAN SHEET MUSIC, include these four publishers in a list of names they deem "eminently worth while." The highlights of the songs within the book are as follows: 1) Fortune, Michael: "Jefferson & Liberty. A New Song. To the Air of Jefferson's March." Philadelphia. 1801. First edition. The most notable music sheet in this collection. Fortune, an Irish immigrant, wrote the song to commemorate Jefferson's election and sent Jefferson a copy of the song. The music was published by the first American antiquarian bookseller, N.G. Dufief, who at the time he published this was trying to sell Jefferson Benjamin Franklin's library for the Library of Congress. For whatever reasons (jealousy? self-interest?) Jefferson turned him down, and Dufief auctioned it in 1803. Perhaps Dufief hoped to advance his sale by sponsoring this publication. Very rare, with only one copy listed in OCLC, at Oxford University. WOLFE 4607. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 734. 2) "The Downfall of Paris." Boston. [1806]. First state, with no page number. One printed page of music, with no lyrics. WOLFE 2737. 3) "The Battle of the Nile: A Favorite Patriotic Song." Philadelphia. [ca. 1804]. First printing by this publisher. A paean to Nelson's victory over Napoleon in Egypt. WOLFE 461. 4) Mozart: "Away with Melancholy." New York. [ca. 1795]. An early printing of this song, an excerpt from THE MAGIC FLUTE. SONNECK & UPTON, p.35. 5) Briggs, Edward Smith: "A Hindustani Girls Song. Tis thy will and I must leave thee." New York. [ca. 1800]. "Soon a british fair will charm thee, thou, alas! Her smiles must woo / but tho' she to rapture warm thee, don't forget thy poor HIN-DOO." SONNECK & UPTON, p.188. 6) [Gaveaux, Pierre]: "La Pipe de Tabac. A Favorite French Song." New York. [ca. 1800]. Not in Wolfe. SONNECK & UPTON, p.332. 7) [Gaveaux, Pierre]: "The Dish of Tea or Ladies Answer to the Pipe Tabac." [New York. 1802]. WOLFE 2896. SONNECK & UPTON, p.110.

      Paris: Schoell. 1810. Hardcover. Very Good. One volume (title page says 1810), large folio (approx. 23 x 17 inches), incomplete, but containing the majority of the colored plates including Le Chimborazo. In late 19th Century quarter cloth and marbled boards, with half title, and two title pages, pp (10), 1-52, 125-274, plates 1-49 on 48 sheets, 17 of which are hand colored and three of which are acquatints tinted sepia. Usually found in 2 volumes published between 1810 and 1813 with 69 plates on 68 sheets; this copy lacks the last 20 plates and significant parts of the text -- apparently lacks pp. 53-124 of the text, and pp. 275-350. Very wide margins, the plates are very good with some occasional foxing, especially plate 49 in b/w. This copy with library bookplate on pastedown with proper withdrawn stamp, heavy foxing and some wear to first page (half title) and some moderate to heavy foxing to prelims. Has the magnificent double page hand colored plate no. 25 of Le Chimborazo (very good) and a number of other handcolored acquatint landscape views, the coloring apparently supervised by von Humboldt himself. Complete copies sell for over $25,000. Field 739; Hill pp 148-9; Palau 117026; Sabin 33754.

      London: Published by White and Co, 1810. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving. Good condition apart from some overall light soiling and foxing, mild mat burn, and two minor creases, one of which extends through the center of the image. Trimmed on all sides. A picturesque view of a bridge built by Johnes in the wooded area adjacent to Hafod House from "Tour to Hafod," a fine collection of plates depicting the mansion and its surrounding landscape engraved by Stadler after drawings by Smith. Comprised of 15 views, Tour to Hafod also included comprehensive descriptive text by the scientist and collector James Edward Smith. The work was most likely intended as a tribute to the social benefactor and literary man Thomas Johnes (1748-1816), who devoted much of his life to his home region of Cardiganshire, where he served as a lord-lieutenant, a colonel in the militia, and an MP for the borough of Cardigan. Located in Cardiganshire, Western Wales, Hafodychtryd or Hafod for short, was Johnes's country estate. Hafod House, his principal residence, was erected in 1785 in the "gothic" style of Thomas Baldwin of Bath. Upon settling there, Johnes set about ameliorating the conditions of the local poor by providing them with comfortable housing and employing them in a planting project that would beautify the neighboring areas. In addition to his concern for social welfare, he was extremely interested in improving parts of Cardiganshire and actively involved himself in the building of roads and bridges. Born in Irthington in 1749, John "Warwick" Smith was an accomplished topographical draughtsman and watercolourist, who enjoyed the generous patronage of the Earl of Warwick. In addition to his fine engravings of Italy, he contributed numerous illustrations to topographical publications such as Select Views in Great Britain (1812), Views of the Lakes of Cumberland (1791-5), Tour through Wales (1794), and A Tour to Hafod (1810). In 1805, Smith became a member of the Watercolour Society, where he frequently exhibited his works. Cf. Abbey, Scenery of Great Britain and Ireland 533; cf. Dictionary of National Biography.

        Recueil factice de mémoires de Poinsot : analyse, géométrie et mécanique. 27 travaux

      1810 - deux volumes in-4 , 1810-1859, , deux volumes in-4, chagrin vert, dos à faux nerfs, tête dorée, roulette en bordure des contreplats, Ensemble remarquable compilé avec intelligence par le bibliophile Henri Viellard (1840-1886), ancien élève de l'École Polytechnique et ingénieur en explosifs. Il comprend plusieurs mémoires, notes, rapports du mathématicien Louis Poinsot (1777-1859), en extraits, en tirés à part et en éditions originales, classés en deux volumes : un volume pour l'analyse et la géométrie et un volume sur la mécanique, tomés respectivement I et II. Il ouvre sur des discours de Bertrand et de Mathieu prononcés lors des funérailles de Poinsot et publiés dans le Journal des Mathématiques pures et appliquées (2e série, tome 4, 1859). Parmi ces écrits, on relève notamment : Au tome I : - Le "Mémoire sur les polygones et sur les polyèdres", doublé, sous forme d'extraits, soit : tel que paru dans les Mémoires présentés par divers savants (1811, tome II, p. 552-590) et, en édition originale, dans le Journal de l'École Polytechnique (1810, 10e cahier, tome IV, p. 16-48, une planche dépliante). Poinsot fut le continuateur de Kepler sur la question des polyèdres réguliers ; les quatre polyèdres qu'il découvrit portent aujourd’hui le nom de solides de Kepler-Poinsot. - Mémoire sur l'application de l'algèbre à la théorie des nombres. A Paris, de l'Imprimerie Royale, 1819. 71 pages. - Recherche sur l'analyse des sections angulaires. Paris, Bachelier, 1825. 80 pages. - Réflexions sur les principes fondamentaux de la théorie des nombres. Paris, Bachelier, 1845. [4]-101 pages. Et au tome II : - Théorie nouvelle de la rotation des corps, première, seconde et troisième parties, extraite du Journal des mathématiques pures et appliquées (1851, tome 16, p. 9 à 129 et p. 289 à 336) : il s'agit de l'écrit de mécanique le plus important de Poinsot, dont la première partie a paru à l'origine en 1834. Elle s'accompagne d'une planche dépliante. - Théorie des cônes circulaires roulants. Paris, Bachelier, 1853. Tiré à part, paru à l'origine dans Journal des mathématiques pures et appliquées (tome 18). 30 pages et une planche dépliante. Théorème dynamique qui se présente comme d'un des corollaires de la théorie de la rotation des corps. - Question dynamique sur la percussion des corps (premier et deuxième chapitres). Paris, Mallet-Bachelier, 1857. Tiré à part, paru à l'origine dans Journal des mathématiques pures et appliquées (2e série, tome 2). - Id. (troisième chapitre). Extrait Journal des mathématiques pures et appliquées (1859, 2e série, tome 4). Louis Poinsot fut un moment examinateur à l’École Polytechnique. Il succéda à Lagrange à l'Académie des sciences. Ses travaux concernant la mécanique rationnelle et la théorie des nombres sont souvent qualifiés de remarquables (cf. DSB, XI, p. 61). Ex-libris imprimé d'Henri Viellard et cachet annulé de l'Institut Catholique de Paris. Étiquettes en pied des dos. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      [N.p., but possibly Port Louis, mid- 19th century]. Old fold. Minor toning. Near fine. Manuscript map depicting troop deployments on the island of Mauritius in December of 1810, when the British finally overcame the French defenses and captured the island. The area from Grande Baie to Grande Riviere is shown, with the coast and terrain in between, documenting the route from the point of debarkation to the town of Port Louis. The legend gives different colored bars for troop positions on the subsequent days of the march, and includes figures for denoting passable and impassable routes. A similar manuscript map is described by Toussaint in his bibliography of Mauritius. The Dutch were the first Europeans to become interested in the island, taking possession in 1598. After exploiting the island's dense forests for a century and introducing the cultivation of sugar cane and cotton, in 1710 the Dutch abandoned the colony. The French soon claimed it as "Ile de France," and the island remained under the control of the French East India Company until 1767. During the long war between France and England at the beginning of the 19th century, Mauritius proved to be an important strategic naval base, and as a result the British took charge of the island in 1810, and the Treaty of Paris confirmed official British possession in 1814. It remained an important sugar producing colony, and in the 20th century agricultural production was expanded to include tea, rice, and other produce. A handsome map illustrating a key event in the island's history.

Burton, Bookplate of C. Leslie Allen & Viola Allen. Interesting provenance. This copy was owned by three important members of the American Theater. Burton (18804-1860) was born in England, and acted in English theater until he emigrated to Philadelphia in 1834. In 1837, he founded the Gentleman's Magazine, and hired Edgar Allen Poe as co-editor. He sold his share in 1841, and began managing theaters. He assembled a magnificent Shakespearean library at his estate at Glen Cove, Long Island. He was an important figure in the American theater in its infancy. C. Leslie Allen & his wife Viola were American theatrical performers at the turn of the century. George Lillo (1693-1739) was a London playwright & jeweler noted for his "commoner" tragedies.
