      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".

        VIEWS OF OXFORD

      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.

        Elegant-tidning.

      N:o 1-50. [=rubrik]. Uppsala, Stenhammar och Palmblad, (1810). 4:o. (200) s. Häftad i samtida nött pappomslag med trasig rygg. Inlagan delvis lätt lager- och småfläckig. 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"

        The Columbian. (For the Country.)

      Printed and published Wednesdays and Saturdays by Charles Holt, No 65, Pine Street, New York. - Size of Volume: 13 ½ in. wide, 20 in. high, 3 ¼ thick. Approximately 210 issues from Volumes 2 & 3 published during the years 1810--1812. Each issue consists of four pages (two leaves); some have a one- or two-page supplement attached. The issues are not bound in chronological order. A few issues are duplicated; other issues are missing; and some issue numbers have been used twice. Issue Nos. 125 (2/27/11) and [136] (4/6/11) were trimmed with loss of some text; Issue Nos. 160 (6/15/11), 272 (7/22/12), 281 (8/22/12), [302] (10/24/12), have had items clipped out. Issue No. 302 (10/28/12) has an item clipped our and a tear to the paper with some text missing. (A bracketed Issue No. means that the number was used on two different issues.) Issue Nos. 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.

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.

        Ta Tsing Leu Lee; being the fundamental laws, and selection from the supplementary statutes, of the penal code of China; originally printed and published in Pekin... translated from the Chinese, and accompanied with an appendix, consisting of authentic documents, and a few occasional notes... -

      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.

      Reprint of 1810 Fine in a recent 1/4 brown morocco leather and marbled paper covered boards with gilt borders and text stamping on the spine. Without a dust jacket. The title page of this volume provides no indication as to the author; however, the last page of text bears the initials "J.G.L.M." which are the initials of John Gaspard le Marchant.

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. Originally published in December, 1796 this is a reprint of 1810 printed for the "War-Office and sold by T. Egerton, Military Library, Whitehall."

Dated 9 August, 1810. In Spanish and Quechua in parallel columns. Written in the midst of the war against Spain, with Balcarce advancing toward Salta and the province falling to the patriots, Iturri Patio urges the people of Cochabamba, Bolivia, to "receive with open arms these heroes, these generous.. Portenos, who, leaving the sweet peace they enjoyed in this city in their homeland, and have risked their lives to protect your freedom.. to shake the heavy yoke of the oppressors from our sholders." Little is known of the author other than he was a citizen of "the noble, loyal and brave city of Gocha Bamba." Lehmann-Nitsche suggest he was an outlaw chased by the Spanish to Buenos Aires (Journal de la Socit des Amricanistes. Tome 22 n1, 1930. pp. 199-206). Nicanor Aranzaes calls him a mercenary, H.P. Kraus wrote that he entered and then left the Order of Mercy, but by 1814 he was a captain of the dragoons. No other copies known at auction since the Oscar Carbone sale of 1968 (lot 357). This is a far better copy. OCLC reports only five copies: LOC, Indiana Univ., JCB, Univ. Texas, BL. A very good copy with faint dampstain along fore edge of first leaf (marginal only), tiny chip at heel of inner margin, nick to top edge of second leaf, else clean with strong impressions.

      TRUE FIRST EDITION. PHOTOGRAPHS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST. Title continues: "with a Full Explanation of the Natural Principles by which Birds are Enabled to Fly; likewise Instructions and Plans for making a Flying Car with wings, in which a man May Sit, and, by Working a Small Lever, Cause Himself to Ascend and Soar through the Air with the Facility of a Bird," very rare First Edition, x, 6-67pp 8vo, with a large hand coloured folding plate, contemporary half calf, rebacked, plate and final leaf with some professional restoration, inscribed presentation copy from the author, despite restoration a good example of a fascinating book, ONE OF THE RAREST ENGLISH BOOKS ON AVIATION Hull, Simmons for Longman &c., 1810. Maggs, The History of Flight, catalogue 619 for 1936, # 178: 'First edition of one of the rarest English books on Aviation' where it was priced at œ25 - perhaps one hundredth of its value today. 'Walker's ideas on the practicability of flight as a means of aerial transportation were based (as stated on the title-page of his treatise) upon 'the natural principles by which birds are enabled to fly.' It is evident the flight of birds was a subject on which for many years he diligently read and observed - in his early life he dissected many birds and 'studied very minutely' the mechanism of their wings, tails and all the parts which they employ in flying. On the evidence of his reading which the author himself states would have enabled him to compile a large volume from all that had been said on the subject throughout the ages he avers 'that no one has ever understood the natural means of flying'' and he dismisses as 'childish whims' all attempts hitherto made with wings, whether of silk, leather, sheet iron, or other rnaterials. Throughout the book he insists on the fact that granted the possession of the 'two greatest requisites ' for flying, viz, 'wings large enough' and 'sufficient power to work them' the weight of a bird - or of a man - is no obstacle to the art of flying. In respect of his own scheme for 'artificial flying' which, conceived on an analogous plan, was designed to overcome the difficulty of the insufficient strength of man's arms, and (as hitherto attempted) the unsupported weight of his body - he claimed, with that complete assurance which is rarely convincing, 'there cannot remain a doubt of success.' Walker admits that 'professional avocations and other circumstances' - which it is safe to assume includes lack of money - prevented him from making any such machine as he described on paper, and indeed the only experiment he himself records was confined to diminutive paper models. It should, however, be added that a contemporary -who as a resident of Barton-on-Humber doubtless wrote with some personal knowledge - stated that Walker made a machine, but 'was unable to raise himself from the platform on which the car was placed.' (See Hodgson's History, pp.351-3). Photograph available on request.

Tre fina samtida ngt nötta hfrbd med rikt guldornerade ryggar med lyror i ett av ryggfälten och glättade titeletiketter i papp samt gula snitt. Ryggarna lite småfläckiga. Det första bandet bitvis med en liten fläck ytterst i marginalen. Några blad felinbundna i inledningen till 1812 års årgång och ett i den sista årgången. Med V. F. Palmblads tryckta exlibris, C. J. Dahlbäcks namnteckning och Pro Finlandia-auktionens exlibris. Palmblads exlibris i första volymen nästan helt bortrivet. Ett svåröverträffat associationsexemplar!. Lundstedt Sveriges periodiska litteratur 391. De bekanta orangefärgade omslagen finns inte medbundna i detta exemplar. Identiska band har synts även på andra exemplar och de är bundna av antingen Dahlbom eller Gällstedt i Uppsala. "Phosphoros", med P. D. A. Atterbom och V. F. Palmblad som redaktörer, var en litteraturhistoriskt banbrytande tidskrift, ett programblad för den nya skolan och det forum där dess företrädare publicerade sina tyngst vägande verk. Den utgavs från juli 1810 till 1813 och utkom i 6 häften för 1810, 6 dubbelhäften för 1811, 2 häften för 1812 och 1 häfte för 1813. Enligt Ljunggren, som ingående behandlar tidskriften i "Svenska vitterhetens häfder", utkom häftena högst försenade. T.ex. utgavs sista häftet för 1811 inte förrän den 28 april 1812, av de två häftena för 1812 utkom det ena i juni 1812 och det andra under våren 1813. Efter flera förseningar utkom i slutet av augusti 1814 häftet för 1813, det avslutande häfte som Palmblad kallade "fosforens sista glans". Detta häfte innehåller också ett register för hela verket uppställt alfabetiskt efter bidragsgivarna, vilka delvis bara framträder under signatur. Förutom av redaktörerna finns bidrag av bl.a. A. A. Afzelius, C. F. Dahlgren, P. Elgström, C. C. Gjörwell, J. C. F. Hæffner, L. Hammarsköld, S. J. Hedborn, G. Ingelgren, C. Livijn, F. B. Schwerin, P. A. Sondén, C. G. Spens och C. Stenhammar. Exemplaret har tillhört "Phosphoros" ena redaktör Vilhelm Fredrik Palmblad (1788-1852) som även författat ett stort antal av texterna i samlingen. Hans bibliotek såldes efter tryckt förteckning på auktion i Uppsala 1853 och dessa volymer har där nummer 1773-1775. Norrlänningen C. J. Dahlbäck blev student i Uppsala 1848. Han publicerade sig i pedagogiska och filosofiska ämnen och slutade som rektor i Falun. På Pro Finlandiaauktionen återfinns exemplaret som nummer 908 och klubbades för 300 kronor
