Rebacked with new end papers. Boards a little scuffed but very securely bound. & Usually called Troughton's History of Liverpool and ascribed to Thomas Troughton, who was the first publisher. & Compiled by John Corry and George Perry and originally published serially by Troughton who had to stop publication because it did not pay. He never printed a t.p. or list of plates. When Robinson bought the copyright, he printed a t.p. and list of contents with his own name as publisher on the t.p., and bound into volumes the unsold parts which he took over from Troughton. Robinson also added a few plates to his issue. A map of the town accompanied Robinson's issue, but it was large, and intended for framing, and therefore not convenient for binding in the volume. Consequently few copies exist with it in although this volume contains a smaller version but lacks the map of the adjacent country mentioned on t.p.& Illustrated plates not included in pagination. Contents lightly tanned with some sporadic light foxing. Page 85 lacking top corner, not affecting text. Evidence of bookworm (no longer present) but this does not detract from the attractiveness of the book as a whole. Overall this is a very clean, sound, collectable copy of this book. Size: Quarto (approx A4). viii,vi,389 pp + plates. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Topography; England; 18th century; History. Inventory No: 15582..

        Notes, on the Minutes of a Court Martial: Holden on Board His Majesty's Ship Gladiator, in Portsmouth Harbour, on Wednesday, the 26th Day of July, 1809, &c. On the Trial, of the Right Honourable James, Lord Gambier; Admiral of the Blue, &c

      Printed for J. Budd, London 1810 - viii, 307pp, [1]. With half-title. Two folding maps, the first depicting the position of French and English ships in the Basque Roads, April 12th 1809, with an overlay, the second a chart produced in court by Lord Cochrane. Contemporary calf-backed boards, gilt, expertly rebacked and recornered. Lightly rubbed to extremities, occasional marginal chipping. James Gambier, 1st Baron Gambier, Admiral of the Royal Navy. Securing distinction during the battles with the French navy on the Glorious First in 1794, Gambier gained notoriety following the political fallout ensuing from the largely successful Battle of the Basque Roads (1809). In command of the Channel Fleet, Gambier instructed Lord Cochrane to harry the French fleet with fire ships, causing a number of the enemy ships to run aground in trying to escape. His caution was interpreted as a failure to press home the British advantage by Lord Cochrane. This court-martial - arranged at Gambier's request - examined the battle and the opposing theories of Gambier and Cochrane. It totally exonerated him - isntead forcing Cochrane from active service. Scarce. [Attributes: First Edition]

"Brigadier General John Winslow accused Captain Joseph Loring Jr. of permitting his men to mutiny by failing to enforce a brigade order to appear on parade in protest of a change in Winslow's rank and command. In 1805 a division court martial acquitted Loring, but Major General Simon Elliot, after asking for a reconsideration of the decision, refused to accept the acquittal and dissolved the court. A second division court martial convened in 1806 found Loring guilty, and ordered him removed and disqualified for military service for three years. In 1807 Loring petitioned the Massachusetts General Court to ask that the decision be invalidated, arguing that it had not been regularly detailed and thus had denied him an impartial trial. The General Court overturned the 1806 decision and ordered Loring reinstated to his former rank and command" (Cohen). This was the first volume of The Militia Reporter. No other volumes were published. Cohen, Bibliography of Early American Law 13473, note to 13551.

In 1800 George Dance junior, the City's Clerk of the Works, commissioned William Daniell (1769-1837) to paint in oils and make an official aquatint for his grandiose scheme for improving the Port of London. This artistic success inspired Daniell to publish a series of coloured aquatint river views. This view depicts the Vauxhall Bridge (the bridge was eventually opened in 1816, after a number of setbacks).

        PAPERS RELATING TO THE DEVASTATION COMMITTED BY GOATS ON THE ISLAND OF ST. HELENA, FROM THE PERIOD OF THEIR INTRODUCTION TO THE PRESENT TIME; COMPRISING EXPERIMENTS, OBSERVATIONS & HINTS, CONNECTED WITH AGRICULTURAL IMPROVEMENT AND PLANTING, &c. &c. &c

      St. Helena: Printed for S. Solomon by J. Coupland, 1810.. [4],80pp. Half calf and marbled boards. A bit of light foxing. One page printed askew and trimmed close, affecting a few letters of text. Very good. One of the first St. Helena imprints, and a very significant tract, addressing the issue of the harm that could be caused to a local ecosystem by the introduction of a foreign predator, in this instance - goats. According to McMurtrie, printing was established on the remote South Atlantic island of St. Helena in 1806, and a newspaper appeared in 1807. No book publication is recorded until 1810, with an abstract of the laws usually being regarded as the island's first publication. The present treatise was printed the same year, and actually contains the text of Gov. Beatson's proposal to print the abstract of the laws and ordinances, so may precede it. The introduction of goats to St. Helena greatly changed its landscape, as they ate much of its native vegetation and caused havoc on efforts at cultivating agriculture there. A measles epidemic had wracked the population, which was also discontented by the suppression of the liquor trade by local officials, all of which led to a mutiny in 1811. The present work is attributed to Alexander Beatson, who was the British governor of St. Helena from 1808 to 1813, and who was particularly interested in fostering agriculture. It includes Beatson's essay on the "evil consequences" which have resulted from the introduction of goats to the island, as well as reports on agricultural experiments and remarks from landowners in favor of and opposed to the extermination of goats. Beatson's final remark on the subject is to encourage landowners to shoot goats at will. St. Helena is most famous as the place where Napoleon Bonaparte spent the final years of his life in captivity, until his death in 1821. During the age of sail it was frequently visited by mariners, and many other distinguished people dropped by, but it is now quite remote. OCLC lists only two copies of this work, at the Natural History Museum in London, and the British Library. Rare and important. OCLC 191967951, 504410685. Douglas McMurtrie, PRINTING PRESS AT ST. HELENA IN 1806.

First edition: Pindar's famous tributes to the classical Panhellenic festivals, of which at the time of this work's appearance "not one fourth . . . have ever appeared in English" (according to the title-page).

Francis Lee, chaplain in ordinary to the Prince of Wales, here takes on the avowedly challenging task of rendering the entire body of the victory odes into English; his efforts are accompanied by West's dissertation on the history and nature of the Olympic Games, first published in 1749, and West's previous translations of some of the odes. The volume opens with an engraving of a classical bust of the poet, and is additionally illustrated with a plan of Olympia in Elis, both from drawings by Lee himself. Provenance: Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of Edward Everett, renowned American statesman and orator, Governor of Massachusetts (1836–39), President of Harvard University (1846–49), and Secretary of State under Millard Fillmore. Lowndes 1869; NSTC L976; Schweiger, I, 238. Not in Dibdin.

        Carta esferica de la parte Interior de la America Meridional para manifestar el camino que conduce desde Valparaiso a Buenos Ayres

      Rare Spanish map of central Argentina and Chile, one of the last colonial maps. 1810. Madrid. Direccion Hidrografica. Wide margins, strong impression and minor fraying to edges, a fine example of this rare map. The map is based on the astronomic observations and findings of Jose de Espinosa and Felipe Bauza, both cartographers to the King of Spain. The map was made in 1810, same year the independentist movements started, thus likely one of the last under colonial rule and made according to the last cartographical information available. Bauza (1764 - 1834) was a Spanish sailor, geographer and astronomer; he is probably most famous for having been cartographer to the expedition led by Alejandro Malaspina in 1788. He ended his life exiled in London, and was buried at Westminster Abbey, an honor reserved for few. His collection is now at the British Library, as the Bauza Collection.

        Hafod House [Pl. 1]

      London: Published by White and Co., 1810. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving. Good condition apart from some overall light soiling, a few mild surface abrasions in the margins, and several small tears and minor losses at the edges of the sheet. Light water stain in the lower left corner. 15 5/8 x 21 5/8 inches. 17 1/2 x 23 1/2 inches. A picturesque view of 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. Smith describes it as being "situated on a rising ground, in a rich and beautiful valley, watered by the river Ystwith, and encompassed with bold hills, richly wooded, or a great variety of forms. These woods abound with magnificent water-falls, formed chiefly by three mountain streams that empty themselves into the Ystwith in different parts of the valley, and are never dry." 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.

I tender, spines rubbed, two small circular indentations in upper cover of vol. I but leather unbroken, an excellent copy. First edition. In 1803 Lawrence, happening to be in France with his father, was arrested, along with the other English residents and tourists, and detained for several years at Verdun. He eventually effected his escape by passing himself off as a German. A second edition was published the same year. He published a five-act play about it in 1813. James Henry Lawrence (1773–1840) is best known for his novel, The Empire of the Nairs (4 vols., 1811), which proselytised the unorthodox customs of the Nairs of Malabar with respect to marriage and inheritance. Heavily influenced by William Godwin, Mary Wollstonecraft, and the French philosophes, he in turn had an important influence on Percy Bysshe Shelley, who met him, and whose Queen Mab (clandestinely published by Hookham, 1813), other works and indeed whole life are saturated in Lawrencian ideas of free love.
