        New South Wales. View of Sydney from the West Side of the Cove No. 1 and View of Sydney from the West Side of the Cove No. 2

      John Booth Duke Street Portland Place, London 1810 - Pair of uncoloured aquatints jolined as a panorama as intended, 340 x 980 mm; in the original bird's-eye maple frame. A rare panorama of Sydney Harbour. John Eyre arrived in New South Wales in 1801, transported here for 7 years for housebreaking. The first of his drawings which can be dated was done in 1804 soon after he received his conditional pardon. His best known work is this majestic panorama; the Sydney he portrays (fancifully) is a neat and orderly town where the Aboriginal inhabitants live with dignity and "peace, order and good government reign." (The Antipodes Observed, 64). The focus is very much on the Harbour where the maritime activity was the dominating element in Sydney at the time. Eyre produced four images:two views from the West side of the Cove and two from the East; offered here are the two views from the West.Eyre's painted panorama was exhibited in London in 1810 and the aquatint engravings were published soon after. The original paintings had been taken back to England by David Dickenson Mann, also a convict, who had been transported to Australia in 1799 for forgery. He was pardoned by 1802 and stayed in Australia, on the fringes of government service until 1809 when he returned to England on the same ship as Colonel Johnston. In fact, Mann was one of the men who gave evidence at the famous court martial of 1811 of George Johnston. Mann not only took back to England the four oil paintings by John Eyre, he arranged for the exhibition of the paintings in London in 1810, then organised their publication. They have the distinction of forming the first such panorama of Sydney to be shown in London and also the first to be published. Repairs to paper and general ageing, but complete with captions intact.

Text toned, with sporadic damsptaining and spotting throughout. First American edition. [ii], viii, [9]-253, [3] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. "To all those men who have had the courage to plead the cause of the unhappy blacks ...". Grégoire (1750-1831), a former Bishop of Blois, was an abolitionist and the first historian of Black literature. His De la Litérature des Nègres (Paris, 1808) was aimed at the seemingly false sympathy of Thomas Jefferson as expressed in his Notes on Virginia. This is the first American edition of that work. It includes biographical portraits of fifteen Blacks, including Phillis Wheatly, Jamaican poet Francis Williams, Olaudah Equiano, and Ignatius Sancho. "This now scarce volume set the standards by which most biographical and historical works on gifted blacks were written during the following decades" (Blockson 101).

        Napoleone legislatore. Panegirico.Brescia, per Nicolò Bettoni, 1810.

      Brescia, per Nicolò Bettoni 1810 - Cm. 35, pp. (8) 184. Con ritratto f.t. di Napoleone all'antiporta e bella aquila al frontespizio e in fine (incisioni in rame). Brossura muta posteriore con dorso rinforzato. Piccoli restauri al margine delle prime due cc., trascurabili fioriture/macchiette (più evidenti all'ultima carta), qualche trascurabile alone limitato all'angolo di alcune carte. Nel complesso buon esemplare, in barbe e ad ampi margini. Pietro Giordani (1774-1848), piacentino, fu filosofo e letterato di chiara fama. Così la voce G. nel Dizionario Biografico degli Italiani (vol. 55) a proposito di quest'opera: "Sul modello degli autori latini il G. vi esaltava non il condottiero e le sue vittorie ma colui che dando alla società italiana nuove leggi aveva cominciato a liberarla dalla "pestilenza feudale", dai privilegi, dalle disuguaglianze, dall'ignoranza, dalla soggezione alla Chiesa. Napoleone era dunque il sovrano illuminato che utilizzava il potere assoluto per incivilire il mondo, non per dominarlo; e in questa visione di stampo settecentesco rientravano una nota materialistica (il pensiero umano era presentato come una secrezione del cervello) e l'ormai acquisita prospettiva anticlericale e antireligiosa, qui visibile nell'apologia del divorzio appena introdotto. Tali contenuti, se qualificavano in senso liberal-borghese il progressismo giordaniano, rendevano d'altra parte meno significativi, perché funzionali comunque a un'attesa di rinnovamento profondo, gli accenti di piaggeria sparsi qua e là nel Panegirico: accenti che i contemporanei colsero e talvolta criticarono, come fece, per es., con particolare acrimonia U. Foscolo". Raro e ricercato. Cfr. Iccu. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Wife; or, A Model for Women. A tale. By Mrs. Edgeworth. FIRST EDITION. 3 vols.

      Printed for J.F. Hughes. 1810 3pp ads vol. I ('novels and romances just published by J.F. Hughes), ad. on verso of final leaf vol. III; text quite heavily marked in places, vol. II lacks following f.e.p. Contemp. half brown calf; rubbed. Ownership details of Mary Crofft, 1832. A good sound copy, in contemporary binding, of a very scarce work.Loeber E12. Although attributed to Maria Edgeworth by a number of institutions, Loeber doubts her authorship of The Wife, noting that Maria Edgeworth became vexed that inferior works were being passed off as hers. He gives examples of several works which were published in this fashion, apparently using the Edgeworth name to entice a wider readership. Block lists this title as being printed at the Minerva Press for A.K. Newman, although a search of OCLC and of Copac finds no copies of this title with the Newman imprint, and it is not listed in Blakey; the only extant copies have the J.F. Hughes imprint. Block gives 'Mrs Edgeworth' as the author of Adelaide; or, The Chateau de St. Pierre (4 vols, 1806), and The Ballad Singer; or, The memoirs of the Bristol family (4 vols, 1814). Loeber adds The Match Girl (3 vols, 1808), Fatherless Fanny (4 vols 1811), and Tales of Real Life, or, Scenes in Ireland (1817). He describes The Wife as 'a high society novel, which starts at a country house in Gloucestershire'. No copy listed on Copac; Leeds University has a digital version only.

        Für den Neujahrstanz kostümierter Affe (Saru no shogatsu / Monkey Costumed for a New Year’s Dance). Original-Farbholzschnitt.

      Japan, um 1810. - 21,5 x 17,8 cm. Im unteren rechten Eck im Druckstock von Shinsai signiert. Die Typographie etwas flau im Druck, an den beiden oberen Ecken auf Trägerkarton montiert, im äußersten Rand an wenigen Stellen schwach gebräunt. Kontrastreicher und farbintensiver Abdruck in sehr gutem Zustand. Der hier gezeigte Affe trägt einen schwarzen Eboshi-Hut und einen Glücksmantel, der mit dem Zeichen des Glücks (Fuku) gekennzeichnet ist. Auf seiner Schulter ein Gohei (für Shinto-Rituale). Das Kostüm trägt der Affe für das über tausendjährige Ritual des Sarumawashi, ein zum Neujahrsfest aufgeführter Affentanz, der dazu dienen sollte, böse Geister von den Stallungen der Samurai fernzuhalten. Im Gegensatz zu dem von uns recherierten Holzschnitt im Rhode Island School of Design Museum (RISD) aufgeführtem Exemplar weicht unser Blatt durch das Fehlen der roten Sake-Tasse im oberen rechten Eck, das unterschiedliche abgedruckte Gedicht sowie die geringfügig anders gestaltete Musterung des Kostüms ab. Ein weiterer von uns konsultierter Druck zeigt zwar ebenfalls die Sake-Tasse (in einer etwas anderen Position als jene des Exemplares des RISD-Museums), jedoch ebenfalls in Kombination mit dem Gedicht unseres Exemplares. – Der Künstler Shinsai war Schüler des Hokusai, über seine Biographie ist allerdings kaum mehr bekannt als das von ihm hinterlassene künstlerisches Oeuvre. 1001 g

        PLEA FROM A HERO OF THE NORTHWEST INDIAN WARS TO RECEIVE HIS ARMY PENSION; Folded-letter from Captain Cornelius R. Sedam to the former Secretary of War, James McHenry

      Cincinnati, 1810. Unbound. Very good. This stampless one-page folded letter measures 15.5" x 12.5". It was sent from Sedam's farm near Bold Face Creek about three miles west of Cincinnati and is dated November 11, 1813. The cover is addressed to McHenry at Baltimore, Maryland. It has a manuscript Cincinnati postmark dated 19 Nov 1811. A manuscript "25" appears in the upper right corner indicating the cost to send a letter a distance of 500 or more miles. The letter is in nice shape with some light soiling. In this letter, Sedam, asks for McHenry's assistance in obtaining a retirement emolument which he had been promised when the army was downsized in late 1790s after the Northwest Territory had been secured. "I . . . write you . . . to save me from Ruin. . . . if you'll please to Recollect when you was Secretary of War you Granted me permission to go to the West Indies and hold my Commission [and] that their would be a Reduction of the Army and would be some Emollements for the Officers that would Retire. Accordingly, I did when . . . the Reduction Took Place. [After] I left Service and Captain Shamburg remained in my Sted . . . the Accountant Mr. Simmons, he informed me that their was not monies Enough apropriated for all the retired Officers. . . . Sir there is a Line commenced against me for 360 Doll's . . . its now in your Power to do me Justice by makeing a Statement of what you remember of the business. . . .". Sedam was a 21-year military veteran and a member of the Society of the Cincinnati. He enlisted in the New Jersey Militia in 1775 and served throughout the Revolution. Following the war, Sadam received a Regular Army commission as an Ensign under General Josiah Harmar and was assigned first to Fort Harmar, where he served with future President William Henry Harrison, and later to Fort Washington (Cincinnati) which he helped build. Between 1785 and 1795, Sedam fought in the Northwest Indian War. He was one of the few officers to survive St. Claire's massacre at the Wabash and was promoted to Captain in part because of his valorous conduct during the battle. He later fought in General Anthony Wayne's decisive victory at the Battle of Fallen Timbers which secured the Northwest Territory from Indian attacks and forced the British to abandon their forts in the United States. The date of Sedam's "retirement" from the Army is hazy, and it is unclear whether or not he actually travelled to the West Indies. However, it is certain that by 1800, Sedam had established a large farm just west of young city of Cincinnati. Today, Sedamsville, the site of the Sedam homestead, is best known as the childhood home of baseball legend Pete Rose. A unique letter from with a rare early manuscript Cincinnati postmark from a noteworthy, but now all-but-forgotten, soldier who was instrumental in pacifying the Northwest Territory.

        A Picturesque Voyage to India; by the way of China

      London: for Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme; and William Daniell,, 1810. Landscape folio (353 x 248 mm). Recent green half calf, decorative gilt spine, dark red label. marbled sides, blue-green speckled edges. 50 hand-coloured aquatint plates by Thomas and William Daniell, on thick paper, mounted on guards, each with accompanying text, bound horizontally as usual. A number of stubs reinforced with archival tape, occasional foxing and light soiling in blank margins, one leaf of letterpress with tape repair to closed-tear. A very good, clean copy. First edition, text and plates watermarked 1808. Originally issued in ten parts, this is one of the most famous books on the scenery of China and India to come out of the Golden Age of British aquatint. In 1784, Thomas Daniell (1749–1840) "received permission from the East India Company to travel as 'engraver' to India with his nephew William Daniell (1769–1837) as his assistant/apprentice. They left England on 7 April 1785 and arrived in Calcutta via Canton early in 1786" (ODNB). The result was this splendidly illustrated account, that includes views of Madeira, Java, Macao, Canton, the Cape of Good hope, Malaysia, Calcutta, and the Bay of Bengal; in addition, there are twenty two plates dedicated to Chinese subjects. "The aquatints of India by Thomas and William Daniell have been continuously popular ever since their publication between 1795 and 1810 … A Picturesque Voyage consisted of 50 aquatints depicting the places visited by the artists on their various journeys to and from China and to India. Five views show their approach to Calcutta and the city itself. The publication of these aquatints had been a mammoth task. The two artists prepared almost all the plates themselves. [William came to be regarded as] one of the greatest aquatinters of the 19th-century … The Daniells' Indian aquatints soon made an impact on the British public and on British culture at a number of different levels" (Archer).

Im Manuskript folgen dann noch 25 wöchentliche Aufzeichnungen, endend mit dem 21. Oktober. - Die insgesamt zwölf voll beschriebenen Blätter sind Teil des Tagebuches, das Wieck in den Jahren 1810-1815 geführt hat. Die vorliegenden Aufzeichnungen betreffen zwar primär den Unterricht eines einzelnen Schülers, doch sind dies hier mehr grundlegende Äußerungen zum Musikunterricht schlechthin, als Bekenntnis niedergeschrieben. "[.] dieser kleine Aufsatz, sage ich, mag zum Beweiß der Liebe für mein ehrenvolles Geschäft [.] und für die Wahrheit seÿn; der ich nie etwas, aufzuopfern gewohnt bin; - und so wünsche ich nur noch, daß dieß alles eben so unbefangen aufgenommen werden möge, als es Schmeichelei u. Heuchelei liebt und selbst andere verkennt; dieß wird mich hinlänglich belohnen. Ich schließe mit den Worten Pauli an alle diejenigen, welche in den jetzigen schwindeligen und überspannten Zeitalter den schönen u festen Vorsatz haben, ihre Kinder gut zu erziehen - mit den Worten schließe ich: 'prüfet und behaltet das Beste. - w.'". - Leicht angestaubt und gebräunt und mit kleinen Randläsuren.
