        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.

A picturesque view of the Pyran falls near 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.

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.

        A Treatise on the Law of War

      1810. Bynkershoek, Cornelius van [1673-1743]. Du Ponceau, Peter Stephen [1760-1844], Editor and Translator. A Treatise on the Law of War: Being the First Book of His Quaestiones Juris Publici. Translated From the Original Latin with Notes, by Peter Stephen du Ponceau. Philadelphia: Published by Farrand & Nicholas [et al.], 1810. xxxiv, 218 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Contemporary sheep, blind fillets to boards, lettering piece and blind fillets to spine. Some rubbing to extremities, chipping to spine ends, front board just beginning to separate but still quite secure, rear joint starting, rear hinge cracked, rear board secure. Offsetting to margins of endleaves, toning to text, light browning and dampspotting in places. Early annotations in pencil to front pastedown, interior otherwise clean. Ex-library. Location label to spine, bookplate residue to front pastedown, card pocket to rear. A solid copy. * Only edition, one of two issues (the other in Volume III of the American Law Journal). A translation of De Rebus Bellicus, part one of Bynkershoek's Quaestiones Juris Publici (1737), A Treatise on the Law of War addresses the customs of land and sea warfare. A notably humane work, it condemns actions against civilians and advocates the fair treatment of prisoners of war. Du Ponceau's able translation is prefaced by a biography of the author, a table of cases, an index of citations from the Corpus Juris Civilis and an annotated bibliography of civil law treatises cited or referred to by the author. This latter item, which lists editions and translations, is interesting for its insights into the American reception of the civil law in the early 1800s. One of the most important jurists and international lawyers of his time, Bynkershoek was an influential Dutch jurist who founded the positive school of international law, which held that usage and practice were more important than deductions drawn from natural law. Du Ponceau is an important figure in the early history of American Law and letters. He founded the Law Academy of Philadelphia in 1821, was the President of the American Philosophical Society and was a much-consulted expert on international relations and linguistics.

Beautiful contemporary binding by Taylor and Hessey, with their names stamped in gilt to fore edge thickness of upper boards, of full dark blue straight grained morocco with fine, delicate gilt titles and tooling, to spines, decorative gilt panelling to boards, grey end papers with fine gilt dentelle; all edges gilt. With 12 copper engravings. Plates offsetting on to text; light age toning; gilt tooling a little dusty. A superb example of Taylor and Hessey's craftmanship. Followers of Edwards of Halifax, in the early part of the 19th century, 'Taylor and Hessey usually bound their fine books in morocco - red, blue, brown, crimson, green - and 'signed' their bindings by stamping their name in gilt in the fore-edge of the binding (not of the leaves, note), whenever the boards inside the leather were thick enough to carry the name of the firm...'. Carl Weber, Fore-edge Painting, p.107.

        Magdalene Tower and Grove, from Christ-Church Meadow

      circa 1810. Hand-coloured engraving by Basire after a drawing by the architectural draughtsman Hugh O'Neill. Printed on wove paper. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, minor foxing, and a mild water stain in the top margin. 13 5/16 x 17 3/4 inches. 14 5/8 x 20 7/8 inches. A picturesque view of the spires and surrounding landscape of Oxford's historic Magdalene College, from "The Oxford Almanack." The Oxford Almanack was a series of broadsides annually published by Oxford University Press since 1674. Beginning in 1723, the almanac was illustrated by topographical engravings by eminent artists including Basire, George Vertue (1684-1756), and Michael Burghers (1653-1727), below which was printed a calendar and additional tables of extraneous information regarding the history and topography of England. James Basire came from a family of engravers that was renowned for their outstanding engravings of English and European antiquities. He established a reputation for himself as a skillful line engraver and eventually succeeded his father as engraver to both the Royal Society and the Society of Antiquaries, which published the bulk of his work. Between the years 1797-1809 and 1811-14, he contributed a number of topographical engravings to The Oxford Almanac. Cf. Dictionary of National Biography.

        Edinburgh

      London: F.J.Sarjent, 1 April 1810. Aquatint, printed in colours with hand- colouring, by Sarjent. (Two small expertly repaired tears to blank margins). 15 3/4 x 23 3/8 inches. 19 x 25 3/4 inches. A beautiful and rare large format view of Edinburgh. Francis Sarjent drew, engraved and published this rare view of Scotland's capital city. This panoramic image is balanced and enlivened by the figures in the foreground of an old sailor (telescope under one arm), who stands talking to two young boys whilst the sailor's greyhound looks on. Various landmark buildings are identified beneath the image: The Bank, The New Prison, Prince Street, The Register Office and the Monument to the memory of Lord Nelson. Sarjent is also credited with having painted the images for a number of the plates in W.Richards & J.Sillett's 'The History of King's Lynn' (London & King's Lynn: 1812). A 19th-century gazetteer notes that 'Edinburgh presents, from almost every point of view whence it can be viewed such scenic and architectural groupings as are perhaps unrivalled in any existing city in the world. It possesses attractions peculiarly its own, and fixes the gaze and challenges the admiration of a spectator by displays of general excellence, unaided by the sumptuousness of any one object, and undergraded by the deteriorations from its prevailing style of magnificence.' (Fullarton [publishers] A Gazetteer of the World 1856, III, p.140).

        A Narrative of a Voyage to Surinam; of a Residence There During 1805-1807; and of The Author's Return to Europe by the Way of North America

      Lon., 1810.. b/w engraved title, plates, map. Written as a series of letters, beginning with a tour of Barbados, moving on to a discussion of the topography and physical appearance of Surinam, cultivation of various cash crops and methods of working the soil, discussion of the slave trade and its abolition, political and natural history of Surinam, with an appendix containing “additional notes and observations on the natural history of Surinam.” Stedman’s work of a few years earlier is the primary source for information about Surinam in this era, and Von Sack refers to him occasionally. However, most of his observations are original. This country had already been colonized for 150 years by the Dutch, with plantations and slave labor producing coffee, sugar and cotton. Paramaribo was an important port for Yankee traders (including those from my home town of Gloucester). Although abolition of the slave trade was Von Sack’s underlying motive for this book, it conveys a great deal of original information about the country and its people. Bound in 19th century calf over marbled boards. Pages tanned, with occasional foxing, water stain in lower corner of first few pages, still a very good copy of a scarce book.

        Vue de Paris. No. 1. Vue prise du Pont Neuf, représentant le Pont des Arts

      [Paris: Esnault, c. 1810]. Hand-coloured aquatint on laid paper, engraved by Monsaldi after Garbizza. Very good condition apart from some light soiling and a few small losses along the edges of the sheet. Slight discolouration of the paper due to age. 14 5/8 x 18 1/4 inches. 16 x 20 1/8 inches. This beautifully coloured, picturesque plate of the famous Parisian bridge connecting the Louvre to the French Academy most likely comes from 'Vues des plus beaux edifices publics et particuliers de la ville de Paris', Jean-François Janinet's detailed visual architectural survey of Paris. The brainchild of Janinet, one the most accomplished French engravers of the 18th century who revolutionized the multiple-plate colour printing process, Vues des plus beaux edifices began as a succession of advertisements published in the Mercure de France and Gazette de France beginning in 1782. Although initially intended as a small portfolio of intaglio prints, the range of the project expanded when Janinet replaced his original collaborator, the topographical artist Pierre-Antoine Demachy, with the eminent architectural theorist Jean Nicolas Louis Durand in 1785. The plates of Vues were first published as a series between 1785 and 1788 and were so successful, that similar publications were issued in emulation. Esnault issued several successive and expanded editions of this great work, including an 1810 edition from which this charming print comes. Angelo Garbizza contributed several drawings of Paris to this edition of Vues. Antoine Maxime Monsaldi, a pupil of Jean-Français Pierre Peyron at the Royal Academy of Art and Science in Toulouse, was one of several artists including J.B. Chapuy and Janinet who engraved the drawings for this ambitious publication. Cf. Thieme/Becker, Allgemeines Lexicon der bilden Künstler, vol. 25/26, p. 73 & vol. 13/14, p. 171; cf. Regency to Empire: French Printmaking 1715-1814, p. 351.

        A Short Narrative of the Late Campaign of the British Army under the Orders of the Right Honourable The Earl of Chatham

      London, James Ridgway, , 1810. with Preliminary Remarks on the Topography and Channels of Zeeland. Octavo (217 × 129 mm), recent quarter calf on marbled boards, red morocco label to the upper board, flat spine, gilt. Folding map frontispiece and one other folding plan, coloured in outline. Light browning, else very good. First edition. Uncommon, COPAC has three copies only, none on OCLC. Squire served under Abercromby at the Helder in 1799, and later under the same commander in Egypt. His next service was in South America where he conducted the siege operations at Monte Video and Buenos Aires, and he was called as a witness for the prosecution in Whitelocke's trial. Following this he was with Moore in Sweden and at the siege of Flushing. In the Peninsula War he was employed on the Lines of Torres Vedres, at the capture of Olivenza and in the three sieges of Badajoz, "his exertions and fatigue at the siege of Badajoz had greatly exhausted him; and, having repaired the bridge of Merida, he was hastening to join Hill when he fell from his horse and was carried to Truxillo. There he died of 'fever and prostration.'…Seldom was the loss of an officer of his rank more deplored." (ODNB) The present work is a careful study of the geography and history of the campaign and contains, "...not only outspoken criticisms on its conduct, but concludes with an able exposition of operations which might have been adopted with success.

        Widgeons

      London: Published at R. Ackermann's Repository of Arts, 101 Strand, May 1, 1810. Mezzotint. Printed on wove paper. Lettered proof, state ii/iii. In excellent condition, with the exception of six skillfully mended tears on bottom margin, not extending near image. One small tear on bottom margin. Image size: 13 5/8 x 17 1/8 inches. 14 5/8 x 17 1/8 inches. 16 9/16 x 21 1/8 inches. A charming proof mezzotint by Charles Turner after James Barenger depicting a pair of widgeons. James Barenger was born into an artistic family. His father exhibited paintings of insects at the Royal Academy between 1793 and 1799, and his mother was the sister of William Woollett, the celebrated engraver. Barenger was well known as an animal painter, exhibiting at the Royal Academy between 1807 and 1831. He was a keen sportsman and had a natural eye for detail, which brought an appealing realism to his studies. From 1815 onwards he exhibited the majority of his pictures at Mr. Tattersall's auction rooms in London, where they were well received by a diverse audience. Although Mr. Tattersall was his primary patron, Barenger earned a number of commissions from the Earl of Derby, The Duke of Grafton, and the Marquess of Londonderry. His work was widely engraved by some of the most fashionable engravers of the day and his attractive images remain highly desirable to sporting collectors. This strong image of two widgeons is from a series of fourteen prints depicting English game birds. The series, which was mezzotinted by Charles Turner and published by Rudolph Ackermann, is entitled "British Feather Game" and includes images of some of the most important species of English wildfowl.
