        Ta Tsing Leu Lee; being the Fundamental Laws, and a Selection from the Supplementary Statutes of the Penal Code of China

      London: T. Cadell and W. Davies,, 1810. Originally printed and published in Pekin ... Translated from the Chinese and Accompanied with an Appendix, consisting of Authentic Documents, and a Few Occasional Notes, Illustrative of the Subject of the Work ... Quarto (310 × 245 mm) Contemporary diced russia, rebacked, title gilt to the spine, flat bands with gilt fleurons, lozenges in blind to the compartments, wide gilt palmette rolled panel to the boards, all edges gilt, foliate roll, gilt, to the turn-ins, drab endpapers. Engraved frontispiece of title page of the most recent Chinese edition, 1805. A little rubbed at the extremities, hinges strengthened with linen, foxing to the first blank, frontispiece and title page, with off-setting from the frontispiece quite heavily to both the previous blank and the title page, otherwise just light toning and the occasional spot of pale foxing, a very good, wide-margined copy. First edition. The first Chinese book directly translated into English, and a key contribution to the understanding of Chinese culture; "a watershed in modern Sinology in particular and modern Orientalism in general, not simply because it was the first English translation directly from a Chinese text, but more because it signalled a fresh point of departure for Westerners to decode and essentialize Chinese law and society in a far more professionally "authoritative" and systematic fashion" (Chen, Law as the Decoding Machine and Cultural Translation for Colonial Control: Staunton's Ta Tsing Leu Lee and Its Historical Legacy). Staunton had been educated at home in line with his father's "peculiar educational notions ... [living] entirely in adult society, developing precocious abilities at languages and natural history" (ODNB). He studied Chinese when accompanying his father on Lord Macartney's mission to China, "Staunton, who was nominally a page to the ambassador, was able to write Chinese characters, and was the only member of the embassy who could speak Chinese to the emperor". He became a writer at the East India Company's Canton factory in 1798, advancing to supercargo in 1804 and chief interpreter in 1808, and in 1816 he accompanied Amherst's ill-fated embassy to Peking as the factory chief, after which he returned to Britain; "Having accomplished my favourite object, of revisiting Pekin in a diplomatic capacity; and, having accumulated a competent fortune in addition to my patrimonial inheritance ... I rejoiced to find myself able to terminate the period of my banishment, at the early age of six-and-thirty". He was MP for various constituencies between 1818 and 1852, he was nominated to the East India Committee (1830) and Tea Duties Committee (1834) of the House of Commons, supported Ashley's motion against the opium trade in 1843, and spoke frequently on colonial issues. A Fellow of the Royal Society, sometime foreign secretary of the Royal Academy, vice-president of the British Association of Science, in 1823 he was a founder of the Royal Asiatic Society, to which he presented his collection of 3000 Chinese books. He died in 1859. This copy with the bookplate of Harriot, Duchess of St. Albans' Stratton Street library, William Beauclerk, the 9th Duke, was a prominent contributor to the Oriental Translation Fund.

        Bewaffneter Tiroler. Aquarell.

      ca. 1810 - 13 x 11, 5 cm, 25 x 22 cm, Passepartout m. blattvergoldeten Rahmen., Tadell. Johann Georg Schaedler (1777-1866) , Halbwaise ab dem siebten Lebensjahr, ging in die Lehre bei Maler Herrmann in Konstanz. Dieser machte ihn bekannt mit dem Kunsthändler Bleuler in Schaffhausen, für den er Kupferstiche in Aberlischer Manier herstellte. Als Geselle war er sechs Jahre lang für den Landschaftsmaler Johann Caspar Huber in Zürich tätig. Nach Einfall der Franzosen in die Schweiz 1798/99 flüchtete er nach Konstanz, kurze Zeit später übersiedelte er dann nach Augsburg und vollendete seine Studien an der Akademie der bildenden Künste in Wien. Ab 1804 lebte er in Innsbruck, wo er als Maler und Radierer tätig war und den Tiroler Volksaufstand miterlebte. Zudem war er Besitzer des Katzung'schen Kaffeehauses. Er wurde insbesondere mit seinen Ansichten, Trachtenbildern und Porträts bekannt, wobei er den Tiroler Freiheitshelden Andreas Hofer als Motiv besonders bevorzugte. - Der Tiroler Volksaufstand war ein Aufstand der Tiroler Bevölkerung gegen die bayerische Besatzung vor dem Hintergrund des Fünften Koalitionskrieges im Jahre 1809. Unter der maßgeblichen Führung Andreas Hofers wurde das Land im Frühjahr 1809 von der bayerisch-französischen Besatzung befreit und bis zum Herbst verteidigt. Erst im November und Dezember 1809 konnten die alliierten Truppen das Land erneut besetzen und ihre Herrschaft wieder festigen.

        CORNELIA AND ALCESTIS: TWO OPERAS

      London: Printed for T. Payne, 1810. FIRST EDITION. Hardcover. Early 19th Century Libretti Based on Greek Tragedies,The Artful Painted Scene by the Dover Painter, ca. 1930. 194 x 124 mm (7 5/8 x 4 7/8"). 2 p.l., lxxxvii, [i], 188 pp. FIRST EDITION. Harmless contemporary purple straight-grain morocco, covers with gilt fillet border, raised bands flanked by plain gilt rules, gilt titling, all edges gilt. WITH AN EXCELLENT LATER FORE-EDGE PAINTING OF THE ACROPOLIS. Joints somewhat rubbed and flaked, boards a little stained and rather faded, rear board with two small abraded patches, otherwise an excellent copy, clean and fresh internally, in a solid, inoffensive binding, and with a vividly colored painting in fine condition. These two librettos are based on Euripides' tragedies "Medea" and "Alcestis." "Cornelia" transports the story of Medea's revenge on her faithless husband to Roman Britain, while Alcestis' story of self-sacrifice and redemption retains its original setting and cast of characters. The fore-edge painting salutes the classical origins of the operas with a striking depiction of the Acropolis, rising majestically on its hill, surrounded by open countryside with blue mountains in the distance. The foreground is populated by two tourists, sitting on a rock admiring the view, and four brightly dressed Greek peasants. Our view shows a sophisticated sense of design as well as a delicacy of painterly strokes, and the whole scene looks very convincing. The intricate gradations in the shading, seen especially in the fields and sky, are remarkable, and the highly skilled use of shadows establishes a strong sense of three-dimensionality. There is a great deal to see in terms of activity, landscape, and architecture, and all of it is painted in careful, convincing detail. It is easy to recognize the work of the so-called "Dover Painter," as it shows his distinctive style of applying small dabs of paint; this method is especially effective in producing convincing texture for skies, trees, shrubs, and grass. "Dover Painter" is the name given by Jeff Weber to the person who painted in the 1920s and '30s, probably for the famous London bookseller Marks & Company. British writer James Mason (1778/9-1827) wrote political pamphlets advocating parliamentary reform and Catholic emancipation, as well as several plays, an epistolary novel, and translations from the classics.

        Landschaft in der sächsischen Schweiz mit mythologischer Szene (Die Jägerin Migul auf dem Felsensitz am Strome Lubar)., Radierung.

      Um 1810. - In der Platte signiert, betitelt, bezeichnet mit "Dresden" und mit Widmung an Friedrich August von Sachsen. Links unten mit Vers aus dem Caledonischen Bardenlied Ossians. Tiefschwarzer, prägnanter Druck auf festem Velin mit Rand. Chr. A. Günther studiert an der Dresdener Akademie bei Adrian Zingg und ist später als Maler, Zeichner und Kupferstecher, vielfach nach eigenen Vorlagen, tätig. Die Motive für sein Schaffen findet er fast ausschließlich in der sächsischen Heimat, besonders in der Umgebung Dresdens und der Sächsischen Schweiz (Pillnitz und Lohmen). Hierher verortet er vermutlich auch die mythologische Szene, die von Ossians Dichtung inspiriert ist und dessen Text unterhalb der Darstellung abgedruckt ist: "Die Jägerin sitzt auf dem Felsen. Donner erschallet neben den Hügeln. Lubar toset schäumend dahin. Zitterndes Mächen wie sollst du den Strom überschreiten in deine Heimath? Athos sah seine Schwester sich nähern. Er kannte den Platz, wo zwei Klippen sich über den Strom bogen. Eine betagte Eiche breitete ihren Arm darüber hin." - Guter Gesamteindruck. Durchgehend schwach stockfleckig.

        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. Hardcover. Very Good 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.

        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.
