        The Female Economist; or A Plain System of Cookery: For the Use of Families. Containing Eight Hundred and Fifty Valuable Receipts. Third Edition

      London: Printed for Mathews and Leigh, 1810 Third edition of one of the more influential early nineteenth century English cookbooks, with revised editions appearing as late as 1828. The first, second and third editions all appeared in 1810. Rebound in modern calf over marbled boards, new endpapers. . Twelvemo. Engraved frontispiece Frontispiece cut down and likely supplied from another copy, top margin of title-page cut away, likely to obliterate and ownership signature. Top corner of H12 cut away, not affecting text. H11, H12 and I1 with some dirt stains. Still, a very good copy, uncut, with half-title and ads preserved in rebinding. Many young Females, when they first undertake the management of domestic concerns, are removed to a great distance from their friends, and probably do not know how to prepare many of those articles which are frequently wanted in a family…it is hoped that Females in the middle classes of society, who superintend their own family-affairs, and who wish to unite hospitality with economy, will find this publication answer the purpose for which it was intended, for it is the wish of the writer to furnish the young housekeeper with a considerable number of receipts, to which she may have recourse whenever [the] occasion requires…" In addition to the many chapters of recipes, this book includes chapters on cookery for the sick and family medicine.

        Amelia

      London - C. Crook, 1810. London - C. Crook, 1810 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A scarce set of thissentimental novelfrom English novelist and dramatist known for his rich earthy humour and satirical prowess, Henry Fielding. First edition thus. Featuring the original six beautifully engraved plates. Fielding began writing Amelia in the autumn of 1749. He turned to his own life for inspiration, and the main character, Amelia, was possibly modelled on Fielding's first wife, Charlotte, who died in November 1744. Likewise, the hero, Captain Booth, was partly modelled after Fielding himself. It contains many allusions to classical literature and focuses on the theme of marriage and feminine intelligence. John Cleland was one of the first reviewers of the novel, and in the December 1751 Monthly Review, claimed the work as the boldest stroke that has yet been attempted in this species of writing and that Fielding takes up his heroine at the very point at which all his predecessors have dropped their capital personages. Complete in three volumes. Condition: Rebacked in calf bindings with gilt lettering to the spines. Externally, light rubbing, and wear to extremities. Internally, all volumes are firmly bound, and bright. Generally clean, with the odd spot and handling mark. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        Bucolica

      London - T. Bensley, 1810. London - T. Bensley, 1810 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An early nineteenth-century copy of Virgil's Bucolica, illustrated with plates. Featuring 24 illustrated plates to the rear of 'plants referred to in the Eclogues'. With the armorial bookplate of Lord Battersea to the front pastedown. The Eclogues, also called the Bucolics, is the first of the three major works of the Latin poet Virgil. Taking as his generic model the Greek Bucolica ('on care of cattle', so named from the poetry's rustic subjects) by Theocritus, Virgil created a Roman version partly by offering a dramatic and mythic interpretation of revolutionary change at Rome in the turbulent period between roughly 44 and 38 BC. Virgil introduced political clamor largely absent from Theocritus' poems, called idylls ('little scenes' or 'vignettes'), even though erotic turbulence disturbs the 'idyllic' landscapes of Theocritus. Condition: In a half calf binding with marbled boards. Externally, generally smart, lightly rubbed in places. Some slight marking to the leather. Internally, firmly bound. Some foxing to the endpapers but otherwise very clean throughout. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        The Man of the World

      London - Thomas Tegg, 1810. London - Thomas Tegg, 1810 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A nice little copy of Mackenzie's Man of the World. Part of 'Tegg's Miniature Novelists', edited by Miss Burney. With a frontispiece and vignette title. Henry Mackenzie (August, 1745 - 14 January 1831) was a Scottish novelist and miscellaneous writer. He was also known by the sobriquet Addison of the North. Mackenzie had attempted to interest publishers in what would become his first and most famous work, The Man of Feeling, for several years, but they would not even accept it as a gift. Finally, Mackenzie published it anonymously in 1771, and it became instantly successful. The Man of Feeling is a weak creature, dominated by a futile benevolence, who goes up to London and falls into the hands of people who exploit his innocence. In 1773 Mackenzie published a second novel, The Man of the World, the hero of which was as consistently bad as the Man of Feeling. Condition: In a full tree calf binding. Externally rubbed, the front joint starting. Internally, firmly bound. Clean and slightly age-toned. Off-setting to the frontispiece, vignette title and title. Ink signature to front free-endpaper.

        The Works of Allan Ramsay;

      Edinburgh - Oliver & Co., 1810. Edinburgh - Oliver & Co., 1810 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A very scarce little set of the collected works of Allan Ramsay. Ramsay (1686 1758) was a Scottish poet (or makar), playwright, publisher, librarian and wig-maker. Ramsay's importance in literary history is twofold. As a pastoral writer (in some respects the best in the world, according to James Henry Leigh Hunt) he contributed, at an early stage, to the naturalistic reaction of the 18th century. His chief place is, however, as an editor. He is the connecting-link between the greater Makars of the 15th and 16th centuries, and Robert Fergusson and Robert Burns. The volumes contain all of his major works including The Gentle Shepherd, notable for its directness of impression and its appreciation of country life. With a lovely engraved frontispiece of the author to the first volume. Complete in three volumes. First edition thus. Condition: Uniformly bound in full tree calf. Externally, generally smart with some bumping and minor wear to extremities. Slight loss to backstrip of volume I. Internally, firmly bound. Pages bright and clean with a few handling marks here and there and some very light browning and spottingto first and last few pages only. Overall: VERY GOOD..
