Further illustrations depict various architectural forms via profile views and cross sections. Giacomo (or Jacopo) Barozzi (or Barocchio) da Vignola (often simply called Vignola) (1 October 1507 – 7 July 1573) was one of the great Italian architects of 16th century Mannerism. His two great masterpieces are the Villa Farnese at Caprarola and the Jesuits Church of the Gesu in Rome. He is hailed as one of the three architects to have contributed to the spreading of Italian Renaissance architecture throughout Western Europe. His two published books helped formulate the canon of classical architectural style. The earliest, Canon of the five orders of architecture (first published in 1562, probably in Rome), presented Vignolas practical system for constructing columns in the five classical orders (Tuscan, Doric, Ionic, Corinthian and Composite) utilizing proportions which Vignola derived from his own measurements of classical Roman monuments. This relatively modern reprint collects his most significant works and philosophies, and contains, after the volumes introduction, an engraved plate depicting the five columns and detailing their features. This rare and unique volume will make an fine addition to the library of any classical architecture enthusiast. Please feel free to view our pictures of this well-preserved book.

        La Prima e la Seconda Cena. Novelle di Antonfrancesco Grazzini Detto Il Lasca. Alle quali si aggiunge una Novella...

      Milano Dalla Societ Tipografica De' Classici Italiani... Anno 1810. Octavo, xvi, 505 p., 1 leaf, port. front., errata leaf at end. Title continues: che ci resta della terza Cena. "Vita di Antonfrancesco Grazzini" di Antonmaria Biscioni, pp. [1]-55. "The Florentine apothecary Anton Francesco Grazzini wrote also in the fields both of fiction and drama. In the Academy of the Umidi, of which he was a founder, he bore the name Il Lasca. ...His novella collection, entitled Le cene, "The Suppers," was probably written, for the most part, after 1550. The frame story is of the familiar type: four young men and four ladies, with their host and hostess, meet for supper on each of three successive Carnival Thursdays. There is music... Ten stories were to be told... but only about twenty are extant. Most of them are stories of trickery, told with a fresh and comic vivacity. Florentine scenes abound-- streets, gates, the Arno and its bridges, shops, churches, the palace of the Medici, even the Sacristy of San Lorenzo, with its Medicean tombs" -- Wilkins, pp. 252-53. NUC 211: 438 (NG 0406751) lists 11 copies. Stock#OB284.

        Le Cabinet du Jeune Naturaliste

      Paris,: Maradan,, 1810.. Six volumes, octavo, engraved frontispiece and title to each volume, 65 engraved plates; fine, uncut, in original bright pink wrappers with original paper spine labels. The first French edition of Thomas Smith's exquisite natural history for young people. An immaculate set, in completely original condition. Gumuchian reports that this original edition was such a success that successive editions appeared in the years that followed.This production stands apart from other juvenile natural history primers for the fineness of its engravings, which are of exceptional quality. Some four hundred and thirty species of fish, mammals, amphibians, reptiles and birds are described, sixty-five of which are illustrated.The description of 'le kanguro' is interesting because it records and describes a number of live specimens in Europe, including those at the royal gardens at Richmond, 'un couple de trËs beaux kanguros' at an exposition at Exeter-Change of 1806, as well as 'une trËs belle variÈtÈ' which had arrived in England on the frigate Lady Barlow. The description is accompanied by an engraving of a man boxing a kangaroo.Gumuchian, 5392.

He is best known for having developed the British Light Cavalry Sword (Pattern 1796 or P1796). Additionally, he sponsored a standardized military training program for British officers. In that vein he wrote several training manuals for the cavalry this being one of them. An octavo measuring 8 3/16" tall by 5" deep containing 98 pages of text and illustrated with 29 fold-out plates.

        Reise um die Welt in den Jahren 1803, 1804, 1805 und 1806

      St. Petersburg,: Gedruckt in der Schnoorschen Buchdruckerey, 1810-, 1812.. Three volumes, quarto, in excellent condition; discreet library stamps; in original marbled boards with glazed labels; spines rubbed; a couple of old labels; something removed from head of spine of vol. 1; in generally excellent original condition, the three volumes in quarter morocco bookform boxes. The very rare St Petersburg printing of the German-language edition of Krusenstern's own account of his voyage, the first Russian circumnavigation in which he was accompanied by a brilliant corps of officers, including men like Lisiansky, Langsdorff, and Kotzebue. The voyage was of great importance to Pacific history for the Russian attempt to open Japan to commerce, and for the observations made on the Russian-Chinese trade. The Nadeshda and the Neva were together at the Marquesas and Hawaii; there they separated and from this point on Krusenstern's narrative of his part of the voyage concerns the western Pacific.These three volumes, published over a three-year period, represent the complete text of the voyage in its first appearance in German. An accompanying Atlas that appeared two years later is only very rarely found with the text today. The three volumes appeared shortly after each of the three volumes of the Russian-language edition of the text was published over a period of four years (Puteshtestvie vokrug sieta, St Petersburg 1809-1812).An Atlas of plates prepared in St Petersburg to accompany the Russian-language edition was published a year after the final volume of the Russian text in 1813. In 1814 the German-language version of the Atlas appeared with some changes to the original plates including the addition of German captions.All components of both editions are very rare on the market; nor are they widely held in institutions.In Australia the full Russian edition (text and Atlas) is held only by the National Library and the State Library of New South Wales. However, according to Trove at least, no copy of the important St Petersburg printing of the German language account is held by either library; a single example of the text volumes is recorded at the State Library of Victoria.The work is very much better known from the subsequent simplified edition in German published shortly afterwards by Haude and Spener in Berlin.Krusenstern has chosen a wonderful epithet from the voyage historian De Brosses to put on the three title-pages of his narrative: "Les Marins Ècrivent mal, mais avec assez de candour" [Sailors write badly, but with great honesty"].Anker, 272; Forbes, 'Hawaiian National Bibliography', 407; Lada-Mocarski, 62.

        [View of Shore Near Nagasaki with Image of Japanese Bird Named Skopa] [Tab. XLVI]

      Engraving, on thick wove paper, by I. Kalpakov after a drawing from nature by D. Telezeus. 21 1/4 x 26 1/2 inches. 24 1/2 x 34 1/2 inches. A fine view of coastal Japan in the first decade of the 19th century, showing an American ship, with Nagasaki in the background, and a Japanese Fish Hawk on a branch. This image comes from the atlas of plates to Krusenstern's account of his voyage around the world (published St.Petersburg, 1810- 1814).The expedition set off from Kronstadt in August 1803 aboard two English vessels purchased for the voyage and, via Cape Horn and visiting the Sandwich Islands, Kamchatka and Japan, eventually returned to the same port, via the Cape of Good Hope, in August 1806. The expedition constituted the first ever Russian voyage round the world, and the published work included much of value, particularly about Japan. The voyage was one of the most important post-Cook Pacific voyages,specifically aimed at obtaining more knowledge of the north Pacific region, establishing diplomatic and commercial relations with Japan, and visiting the Russian trading posts in Alaska and on the west coast of America. It comprised the first Russian expedition to circumnaviagate the globe, under the command of Ivan F. von Krusenstern, between 1803 and 1806. The expedition touched on Brazil and rounded Cape Horn, visiting the Marquesas Islands, Hawaii, Kamchatka and Japan. In Hawaii the expedition separated, with ships under Langsdorff and Lisianski sailing to the Northwest Coast while Krusenstern himself undertook the delicate Japan expedition. He then returned via Macao and the Cape of Good Hope. Cf. Lada-Mocarski 62;. cf. Sabin 38327; cf. Arctic Bibliography 9377; cf. Forbes Hawaii 401; cf. Howes K272 ("c"); cf.

      Paris: [de l'Imprimerie de J.H. Stône] chez F. Schoell, 1810.. Two volumes bound in one. [10],350,[1]pp., including engraved dedication leaf. Sixty-nine engraved plates on sixty-eight leaves (twenty-seven handcolored, printed in colors or printed in colors and finished by hand [one of these double-page], four printed in sepia). Half title. Folio. Expertly bound to style in half morocco, preserving original brown paper- covered boards, titled in gilt on spine. Plates and text very fresh and clean. Near fine. Untrimmed. This atlas is one of the most important publications resulting from the expedition to America in 1799-1804 of the great German scientist and explorer, Alexander von Humboldt, and the botanist, Aimé Bonpland. During their extensive trip, the two gathered masses of material relating to all aspects of the New World, and their work in the field and in publication set a new standard for scientific exploration and reporting. Humboldt and Bonpland sought to investigate geography, natural history, archaeology, and native customs. Their field explorations were supplemented by extensive research in Europe. The series of publications began in 1805 and took decades, the present volume being the first major work to appear. VUE DES CORDILLÈRES... is most notable for its remarkable aquatint plates of scenes in South and Central America, particularly the magnificent double-page plate of the great volcano of Chimborazo in the Andean highlands. Most of these were made after Humboldt's original sketches. His involvement in the publication was close, especially in checking the coloring, which was done under his personal supervision to ensure accuracy. These plates beautifully illustrate views, native costumes, and antiquities. The work is equally important as the first extensive treatment of surviving pre-Columbian and immediately post- Columbian Indian codices. The first publication of any part of the famed Dresden Codex, the most extensive of surviving pre- Columbian codices, is found herein, again with superb aquatint coloring. There are also color reproductions of the Codex Mendoza and plates drawn from other important codices. Humboldt's treatment of them is a landmark in the rediscovery of the pre-Columbian civilizations. "Every class of Mexican or Aztec, and Peruvian Antiquities, receives in this work the clearest philosophical analysis" - Field. "Many of the plates are beautifully colored; indeed, it is the most beautiful and generally interesting of Humboldt's works" - Sabin. The present copy includes the last twenty plates; these are frequently lacking. It does not include the sixteen- page introduction by Humboldt, dated 1813, which seems to be an indication that the present copy is an early issue. SABIN 33754. FIELD 739. HILL 839.

Contemporary armorial bookplate on front pastedown. Overall very good. The report of the first United States government expedition to the Southwest, and one of the most important of all American travel narratives, including an account of Pike's travels to explore the headwaters of the Arkansas and Red rivers, his earlier journey to explore the sources of the Mississippi River, and his visit to the Spanish settlements in New Mexico. Pike's narrative stands with those of Lewis and Clark, and Long, as the most important of early books on western exploration and as a cornerstone of Western Americana. The maps were the first to exhibit a geographic knowledge of the Southwest based on firsthand exploration and are considered "milestones in the mapping of the American West" (Wheat). "The description of Texas is excellent" - Streeter TEXAS. The Pike expedition probed at the Spanish borderlands, which Jefferson believed were ripe for collapse. Ultimately his expedition was captured by a Spanish military force and expelled from New Spain. HOWES P373, "b." WAGNER-CAMP 9:1. STREETER SALE 3125. WHEAT TRANSMISSISSIPPI 297, 298, 299. GRAFF 3290.

And a tour through the interior parts of New Spain ... in the year 1807

      Philadelphia: Printed by John Binns, published by C. & A. Conrad, & Co. of Philadelphia, Somervell & Conrad of Petersborough. Bonsal, Conrad, & Co. of Norfolk, and Fielding Lucas Jr. of Baltimore, 1810. 8vo. Stipple- engraved mounted India paper proof portrait frontispiece of Pike by Edwin, 6 engraved maps (5 folding), 3 folding letterpress tables. Expertly bound to style in period tree calf, the flat spine divided into six compartments by double gilt fillets, original red morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment. One of the most important of all American travel narratives: the first edition of the report of the first United States government expedition to the Southwest, including an account of Pike's exploration of the headwaters of the Arkansas and Red rivers, the sources of the Mississippi River, and the Spanish settlements in New Mexico. Pike's narrative stands with those of Lewis and Clark, and Long, as the most important of early books on western exploration and as a cornerstone of Western Americana. "In 1805, Pike was given the difficult assignment of conducting a reconnaissance of the upper Mississippi region. He was ordered to explore the headwaters of that river, to purchase sites from the Indians for further military posts, and to bring a few influential chiefs back to St. Louis for talks. The trip was only moderately successful as a mission to the tribes, but Pike was able to convey important geographical information to President Jefferson and other Washington officials. On Pike's second expedition, 1806-1807, he was assigned to explore the head-waters of the Arkansas River, then proceed south and descend the Red River from its source ... Pike and his men were taken into custody by a Spanish patrol, and Pike was able to observe many areas in New Mexico, Chihuahua, and Texas ... His book created interest in the Southwest and stimulated the expansionist movement in Texas" (Hill). The maps were the first to exhibit a geographic knowledge of the Southwest based on first-hand exploration and are considered "milestones in the mapping of the American West" (Wheat). "The description of Texas is excellent" (Streeter, Texas). We have never encountered the work with the portrait in an India proof state.

      Philadelphia: A. Conrad, 1810. Book. VG. Hardcover. Signed. First Edition. 8vo. 6, 105, [11], [107] - 277, [5], 65, [1], 53, [1], 87pp, bound in modern dark-brown textured leather, with hand-set lettering at spine, "Pike's / Expeditions," in gilt, and 7 decorative horizontal lines, reminiscent of bands, also hand-set in gilt, new pastedowns and endpapers, title-page professionally repaired at all edges, repairs also noted at leaves 81/82, and 173/174, scattered light foxing, occasional waterstaining, one of six maps present (The Falls of St. Anthony), small sections present from two folding charts, lacking portrait, folding table, and other sections of folding charts. Includes stamped "James B. Pike" in old ink at introductory page, and two signed inscriptions from the Pike family, with the older inscription, "Wm. C. Pike / Eddyville / Iowa / A present / to him by his father Z. W. Pike," noted on verso of St. Anthony plate, and the most recent, "To Montgomery E. Pike, / from his uncle / Merritt C. Pike Christmas 1920," noted at the introductory page under the James B. Pike stamp. It appears this copy was passed down the family thusly: 1) James Brown Pike (5/1/1784 - 3/19/1855), the present author's younger brother, to James' son 2) Zebulon Wardell Pike (1825 - 1864), to Zebulon Wardell's son 3) William Clinton Pike (b. 1848), to William Clinton's cousin 4) Merritt C. Pike (b. 1859, whose father Montgomery Pike, 1818 - 1900, was a brother of Zebulon Wardell Pike by their father, James B. Pike), to Merritt C. Pike's nephew 5) Montgomery Everett Pike (3/2/1885, Selma, IA, to 11/14/1953, whose father, Elias Jenison Pike, b. 2/28/1846, was Merritt's brother). Genealogical research indicates neither Merritt C. Pike nor Montgomery Everett Pike had male heirs which could explain why Merritt would give the book to Montgomery, and why it apparently got away from the family after Montgomery's death in 1953. Fascinating association copy from the Pike family. Two additional inscriptions noted, one on verso of final page of introduction, "Samuel S. Deane / presented to his / friend Capt. Haz. / Coffin, on board ship / Perseverance, passage / from neworleans / November 4, 1815," and at first page of Part I, "Captain Hazadiah Coffin / of Ship / Perseverance of new (orleans) La." Inscriptions are in the same ink, and hand, thus presumably by Captain Coffin, who for a time transported British and Irish emigrants to America, and who is located in the 1840 Brooklyn, New York, directory, as "ship master, 78 Nassau." During the War of 1812, Coffin (and other merchant seaman and ships doing commerce on the ocean) went inland to the waterways. The Coffin inscriptions appear to be from that time. We have not been successful in determining the identity of Deane. One additional inscription is noted, at the title page, "James P. F. Clar(k)," whom we have not been able to identify. We have yet been unable to determine the relationship between the Pike family and the other inscriptionists. A unique, important piece of American history. Additional pictures available including title page, inscriptions, and signatures. Unique..

        The Refusa.l By the author of the "Tale of the Times," "Infidel Father," &c

      London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees & Orne, 1810. First edition of a novel dealing with Regency mores. Contemporary black morocco over drab boards, gilt spines. Three volumes, twelvemo. . Boards a bit stained. A very good, clean copy. West (1758-1852) was a self-taught writer who sought to advance her family through her writings. She wrote plays and poetry, and is especially known for her novels, The Advantages of Education (1793) and A Gossip's Story (1797), the latter of which has often been seen as a source book for Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility. Though always regarding herself first as a wife and mother, she was an advocate of education for women and was always concerned that women were often unable to develop their talents. " Her Letters to a Young Lady (1806) has been called " an ideological counterpart to Mary Wollstonecraft's Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), stressing the "duties of women rather than the "rights," which Wollstonecraft stressed.

        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

      London,: John Booth, 1810.. Pair of aquatints in the original bird's eye maple frame. 340 x 980 mm. View of Sydney from the West Side of the Cove , two of John Eyre's superb views of Sydney Harbour.David Dickenson Mann was transported to Australia in 1799 for forgery, he was pardoned by 1802 and he 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, David Dickenson Mann was one of the men who gave evidence at the famous court martial of 1811 of George Johnston.Mann took back to England four oil paintings by John Eyre which formed a panorama of the fledgling settlement. Mann exhibited these paintings in London in 1810, and organised xxx Clark to publish four aquatints based on them. This panorama of Sydney has the distinction of being the first to be shown in London, and the first to be published and Mann dedicated it to Admiral John Hunter.The convict artist John Eyre had arrived in New South Wales in 1801 and 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 panorama; his Sydney is a neat and orderly town where the Aborigine roams with dignity. The focus is very much on the harbour, unsurprisingly as the maritime activity there was the dominating element in Sydney at the time. The four prints are View of Sydney from the East Side of the Cove numbers 1 and 2 and View of Sydney from the West Side of the Cove numbers 1 and 2.The two views offered here are the original uncoloured issue of 1810-1811 joined together as intended and in a very early nineteenth century frame.First Views of Australia, page 130/131.

      Portsea: Printed for, and published by G.A. Stephens,, 1810. including a Faithful Narrative of Every Circumstance during the Voyage, to the South Sea Islands, In the Missionary Ship Duff, for the Propagation of the Gospel; with an Authentic and Interesting Account of the Sufferings and Calamities of the Missionaries; from the Year 1797, to the Present Period. Octavo (202 × 126 mm). Attractively bound in half calf to style, red morocco label, gilt roundels to triple ruled compartments, marbled sides. Attractive folding engraved frontispiece of "The Duff going out on her first Missionary Voyage" under a near full press of sail. Frontispiece torn, without loss, now professionally repaired and laid down, near contemporary ownership, and subsequent gift inscription to the title page, title page slightly browned and with off-setting from the frontispiece, light toning to the text,. 2 pages with spatter of ink-splashes, snuff-burn to a couple of leaves, but overall a very good copy. First edition. Uncommon, COPAC records only the SOAS copy, OCLC locates 12 other copies world-wide, five of them in Australia and New Zealand and five in the USA, two of these in Hawaii. "Although there are several account of James Wilson's life, sufferings and missionary voyage, this was the earliest biography of him to appear. Written anonymously, this lively telling follows Wilson's life from his birth in 1769 and early employment with the East India Company. The account relates the popular tale of his imprisonment by the French in India, his escape, and his subsequent recapture by soldiers of the maharajah of Mysore, then a bitter enemy of England. After his release, he quickly acquired considerable wealth and retired from trade in 1792, while still a young man. Wilson settled in Portsea, Hampshire, married, and in 1795 converted to an evangelical Christianity. He took notice of the London Missionary Society and offered his services to captain its ship, the Duff, on a voyage to deliver missionaries to South Pacific Islands. Four short chapters at the end of this volume deal with the progress of the various missions on Tahiti, Tongatabu, Port Jackson, and the Marquesas" (Hill). Sir Peter H. Buck (Te Rangi Hiroa) describes the expedition as the "last important British voyage to the Pacific during the eighteenth century," remarking on the "great changes in the native culture of the Polynesians" that the success of the mission wrought (Explorers of the Pacific, p47). Results that did not attend earlier Spanish efforts "because the Spanish authorities had failed to provide the missionaries with an armed guard to enable them to deliver their message of peace in safety." None of the four copies listed at auction in the last 40 years has had the frontispiece.

        The Novels of Daniel De Foe

      Edinburgh,: James Ballantyne,, 1810.. 12 volumes, small octavo, with frontispieces and plates; a most attractive set in contemporary half red morocco. A fine set of Defoe's works, including his classics Robinson Crusoe and A New Voyage Round the World, as well as History of the Plague, Colonel Jack, Captain Singleton and Memoirs of a Cavalier.Although in and out of prison for various bankruptcies, and pilloried for some of his more overtly political writings, Defoe survived these various attacks. By the early eighteenth century he was a favourite of the then Whig government.This set includes Defoe's most famous work, Robinson Crusoe. Based at least partially on the story of the Scots sailor Alexander Selkirk, Defoe turns a genuine experience of barest survival into an elaborate tale. Indeed, the story of Crusoe's hard-fought survival and eventual moral redemption is one of the most important and influential works of English literature, spawning an entire genre that has become known as the "Robinsonade".

      London: White & Co.; Oxford: R. Smith, 1810. FIRST COMPLETE EDITION (see below). Hardcover. Rare, Fine Views of Oxford, with Noted Owners fromMedicine, Military, Social Welfare, Domestic Science. 416 x 314 mm (16 3/8 x 12 3/8"). FIRST COMPLETE EDITION (see below). Appealing 19th century (ca. 1860s?) dark green half morocco over lighter green textured cloth by T. Aitken (stamp-signed on verso of front free endpaper), upper cover with gilt titling, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with elongated fleuron centerpiece and scrolling cornerpieces, gilt titling, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt (small, very expert repairs to upper outer corners and perhaps at top of joints). Mezzotint frontispiece portrait after Gilbert Stuart, engraved title, and 30 FINE PLATES OF INTERIOR AND EXTERIOR VIEWS OF OXFORD COLLEGES, 24 of them aquatints and six of them etched. Front pastedown with engraved armorial bookplates of Sir Mayson M. Beeton and Sir Richard Farrant; verso of front free endpaper with ink presentation inscription, "Sir Charles Locock, Bart. / with Captn. Malton's kindest regards. / Nov. 1860." Subscription proposal for the work printed by T. Bensley and dated "London, May 30, 1301" [i.e., "1801"] laid in at front. Abbey "Scenery" 277. A couple of small smudges to boards, portrait faintly foxed and browned, isolated small stains (not affecting images), but still A FINE COPY, the plates especially clean, fresh, and smooth, and the pleasing binding with virtually no wear. This is an attractively bound and especially well-preserved copy of a surprisingly rare book with striking views of the lovely colleges of Oxford, illustrations that combine architectural precision with a warmth and vitality added by the presence of gowned scholars, ladies of fashion, children, and dogs. Thomas Malton (1751/2-1804) began his career as an architectural draughtsman, theater scenery designer, and drawing teacher whose pupils included the young J. M. W. Turner, but he longed to be accepted as a painter by the Royal Academy. In support of his application, he produced his best-known work, "A Picturesque Tour through the Cities of London and Westminster" (1792-1801) with 100 acclaimed aquatint plates. He followed this triumph with the present work, a similar tour through Oxford. Sadly, he died before this last work could be completed, and the final six plates in our volume appear only in outline as a result. The Royal Academy excluded him on the grounds that he was merely a draughtsman, but his work here belies the claim. The buildings are charged with an energy that captures the spirit of the university town with its soaring spires, and the interiors have a convincing feel of dankness communicated by the granular quality of the aquatints. Our copy has a celebrated history: in 1860, it was presented to Sir Charles Locock (1799-1875), the eminent obstetrician who delivered all of Queen Victoria's children, the presentation being made by "Captain Malton," probably a descendant of the artist, and quite likely Captain William Dawes Malton, who authored at least seven books on infantry drill and related topics in the 1860s. Later owners include Sir Richard Farrant (1835-1906), knighted for his efforts to provide quality affordable housing for the poor; and Sir Mayson Moss Beeton (1865-1947), son of the celebrated Mrs. Beeton (1836-65), author of perhaps the most popular and influential household book ever published. "Views of Oxford" is a very rare book: ABPC lists just four copies of this edition at auction since 1975--none of them sold in the past 25 years--along with two of the 1802 and one of the 1805 printings, these latter editions containing just the first 24 of our 30 plates.

Svag fuktrand i nr 39, fläck nedtill i nr 42-43 och bläckfläckar i nr 44. Med A. A. Afzelius namnteckning.. Lundstedt 387. Allt som utkom. Detta var den första skrift J. A. Stenhammar och V. F. Palmblad gav ut på sitt nystartade förlag. Utgivarnas förhoppning var att tidningen skulle finansiera utgivningen av den mer exklusiva "Phosphoros". Innehållet i "Elegant-tidning" utgörs till stor del av recensionsmaterial, poem, modenotiser och utdrag ur utländsk litteratur - med Atterboms ord "underhållande lektyr för fruntimmer och den lägre klassen af läsare". Av bidragen märks bl.a. Atterboms dikt "Mitt första rendez-vous" som väckte anstöt i prydare kretsar. Bland övriga medarbetare kan Hedborn, Hammarsköld, Askelöf, Palmblad och Stenhammar nämnas. Vid slutet av året såldes tidningen till bokhandlaren Emanuel Bruzelius och återuppstod rekonstruerad som "Tidning i blandade ämnen". Ett tvåsidigt bihang till varje nummer, innehållande annonser och kungörelser för Uppsala, medföljde en del av upplagan men saknas i detta exemplar. Arvid August Afzelius (1785-1871) är väl idag mest känd för sin och E. G. Geijers utgåva av "Svenska folkvisor". Han tillhörde nätverket runt den nya skolan, var god vän med Atterbom och den danske språkforskaren Rasmus Rask samt publicerade sig i bl.a. "Phosphoros" och "Poetisk kalender"

No. 174 (8/17/11); 176 (8/24/11); 199 (11/13/11): 201 (11/20/11); 205 (12/4/11); 202 (11/23/11); and 203 (11/27/11) have supplements. No. 267 (7/3/12) has a supplement which includes a list of names of men registered as an "Additional Army" for the War of 1812. Of historical interest are the following: Issue No. 206 (12/7/11) contains an "Extra No. 6" devoted to the Battle of Tippecanoe (in which Wm. Henry Harrison, then governor of Indiana Territory, received the sobriquet which helped him win the White House in 1840.) Issue No. 246 (4/25/12) is devoted to the death of George Clinton; No. 303 (10/31/12) mentions the publication of "General Lee's Memoirs" in two volumes. This General Lee was the father of Robert E. Lee and led American forces in the South during the Revolutionary War. Less important historically, but still of interest, are No. 143 (5/1/11) which has a note in ink identifying as "George Bloom" the author of an article signed only as "Whig"; and No. [161] (7/3/11) which has an ad for a fireworks display giving the many types of fireworks to be set off. Many of the later issues are noteworthy for their information regarding the War of 1812 (which technically began in June of that year with Congress's declaration of War) and the events leading up to it (including impressments and agitation of the Indians by the British.) Some issues show trimming to the top or bottom edge with the loss of a few letters of text. Some general age-related tanning as well as tan spotting is present to various issues. Bound with an old brown leather spine, sides, and corner pieces with a maroon leather title label with gilt designs and gilt titling, reading: "Columbian For the Country, Vol. 2, 3, and 4; Dec. 15, 1810—Dec. 30. 1812." Marbled paper over thick boards. The leather on the spine shows age-related wear, with chipping to the ends, hinges, and sides. The front cover is present but detached. The outer covers show considerable wear, with some of the marbled paper worn and showing stains. The leather corner pieces show wear and chipping. On the inner front cover and fly-leaf there is foxing. This volume once belonged to John B. Ireland, author of "From Wall Street to Cashmere" (1859). From the collection of William G. Mather (1857-1951), a Cleveland, Ohio-based book collector who was related by marriage to the Irelands. This volume requires proper binding restoration. Weight is 12.5 lbs. Postage may be extra on this item. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      London, Cadell and Davies, 1810.Large 4to. Mid 19th century buckram, two leather labels on spine. Frontispiece with a fac-simile. (4), LXXVI, 581, (1), (2 of ads) pp.; tear repaired in d4, mild soiling at beginning and damp stain towards end. First edition. In 1792, at nine years of age, Staunton accompanied his father to China under the nominal designation of page to the ambassador (Lord Macarteny). He soon acquired a good knowledge of Chinese and in 1798 was appointed a writer in the East India Company's factory at Canton, and subsequently its chief. He went to Peking again in 1816 with Earl Amherst and Sir Ellis, and this was only the second time that any party of Englishmen had been permitted to advance so far into the interior of China. In 1805 he translated a work of Dr. George Pearson into Chinese, thereby introducing vaccination into China, and in 1810 he translated the Ta Tsing leu lee: this is the first book translated from Chinese into English.

        The Refusa.l By the author of the "Tale of the Times," "Infidel Father," &c

      London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees & Orne, 1810. First edition of a novel dealing with Regency mores. Contemporary black morocco over drab boards, gilt spines. Three volumes, twelvemo. . Boards a bit stained. A very good, clean copy. West (1758-1852) was a self-taught writer who sought to advance her family through her writings. She wrote plays and poetry, and is especially known for her novels, The Advantages of Education (1793) and A Gossip's Story (1797), the latter of which has often been seen as a source book for Jane Austen's Sense and Sensibility. Though always regarding herself first as a wife and mother, she was an advocate of education for women and was always concerned that women were often unable to develop their talents. " Her Letters to a Young Lady (1806) has been called " an ideological counterpart to Mary Wollstonecraft's Vindication of the Rights of Woman (1792), stressing the "duties of women rather than the "rights," which Wollstonecraft stressed.

        THE HISTORY OF LIVERPOOL, From the Earliest Authenticated Period Down to the Present Time; Illustrated with Views of the Principal Buildings in the Town and Vicinity ; A map of the Town , and one of the Adjacent Country

      Printed and sold by William Robinson, Liverpool, 1810. First thus. Binding: Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good Condition. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. 3/4 calf binding over marbled boards with gilt title on leather label on spine. 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.
