Abraham Rees (1743-1825) was a British clergyman best known for this, his outstanding encyclopedic work, The Cyclopaedia. (Initially published 1802-1820 in parts in Great Britain.) Rees' work not only featured theological and humanistic issues, but also extensive articles on mathematics and natural sciences. The Cyclopaedia, "is the richest work for technology of the period, with detailed text and handsome, carefully prepared plates." Ferguson, Eugene. "Contributions to Bibliography in the History of Technology (part II)". Technology and Culture 3.2 (1962): 169 p. "Rees was convinced that the important progress made during the last decades of the eighteenth century, especially in the fields of history, geography, geology, natural history, and the physical sciences senu lato, required a new type of encyclopedia with the accent on these fields as well as the still relatively undeveloped domains of biography and the history of sciences. The Cyclopaedia thus became one of the first works of its kind to be compiled with the help of 'persons eminently distinguished in these branches of science to which they had devoted their talents.'"

        Autograph letter signed "G. Spontini Conte di Sant' Andrea" to Benigni Ghisilieri

      Spontini "dominated serious grand opera of the early 19th century in Paris and later in Berlin... Although Fernand Cortez was taken out of the repertory in 1810, that year proved to be the peak of Spontini's career. In February he was appointed directeur de la musique de l'opéra buffa at the Théâtre de l'Impératrice and was able to put his ideas for repertory - concentrating on performances of Cimarosa and Mozart - into practice at the Théâtre Italien. In July he was awarded a newly created prize for the best opera of the decade, for La vestale, and in the same month he married Marie-Cathérine-Céleste Erard, daughter of the pianoforte maker and publisher Jean-Baptiste Erard. After Napoleon's fall from power Spontini withdrew from the public eye for some time, but he greeted the return of the Bourbon kings in August 1814 with Pélage and he was restored for a time to the position at the Théâtre Italien which he had given up in 1812." Anselm Gerhard in Grove Music Online.. 1 page of a bifolium. Quarto (ca. 260 x 217 mm). Dated Paris, June 20, 1845. In ink on dark ivory paper with integral address panel and remnants of original seal to verso of second folio. In Italian (with translation). Spontini asks Ghisilieri to convey his thanks to a certain Consul Petrini. He mentions Giovanni Paggi, a well-known Italian oboist, composer, tenor, and mutual acquaintance. "... The most accomplished Signor Paggi will tell you that he has listened to me saying constantly that I am still awaiting answers from Rome, Iesi, and Maiolati! Without this, I would not know that I am boring my friends with vague, useless and fruitless matters! I have repeatedly asked him, and would indeed ask you also, to convey my infinite thanks to the most kind Consul Petrini for the admirable offer he saw fit to make to me, of providing a friendly retreat and hospitable asylum for the many centenary festivities. I would be too afraid to accept, or be judged perhaps indiscreet or ungrateful. I am not in a position to make up my mind or to take such a decision, which no one should expect in such a state of uncertainty... " Slightly worn and soiled; creased at folds; edges trimmed with short tears and some fraying, slightly affecting several letters; minor loss to margins of second folio, corresponding to seal, not affecting text or address panel. Together with: An intriguing autograph letter signed "Ch. de Lonchamps" to Spontini. 2 pp. of a bifolium, ca. 249 x 190 mm. Dated Naples, June 7, 1810. In ink on ivory paper with integral address panel with remnants of original seal, and "Il Soprintendente Generale de' Teatri, e Spettacoli Ciambellano di S. M." printed at head. In Italian (with translation). Lonchamps attempts to lure Spontini back to his native Italy with a commission for a grand opera and an opera buffa, to be performed at the Royal Theatre of S. Carlo in Naples. He reminds Spontini that, although he may enjoy unprecedented advantages in Paris, it is only in his own country that he may see his friends and family - as well as fulfill the desire of the Queen of Naples to have him in her city. "Having received your letter, my dear Spontini, I have been reflecting on the most suitable method of repaying you for your services. In consequence, I have summoned the impresario for the Royal Theatres, for whom you might like to set some drama to music, as much for honor as for profit. In doing so, knowing the benefit that could accrue from the graciousness of your action, I have engaged him to propose to you the composition of a major serious drama for the Royal Theatre of S. Carlo, for which you will be offered, in reward, the same as has been offered in the past to the most famous composers. Following the success of this composition (of which there can be no doubt), the above-mentioned impresario will propose an opera buffa, which will also be rewarded as above. This is what I have been able to obtain for the moment. I am sure that the impresarios of the Fiorentini and Nuovo theatres will not miss the opportunity to profit from your coming to Naples, by offering in their turn projects for their theatres, which are also enjoying fame at this time... " Creased at folds and corners; occasional small ink stains and smudging, just affecting final pen stroke of greeting; minor worming to upper inner margin, affecting one letter. Spontini was one of the leading composers in Paris when Lonchamps made his proposal. It is unclear whether Spontini accepted. After Fernand Cortez (1809), Spontini seems to have produced no new operas, either in Paris or Italy, until Pélage, first performed in Paris in 1814.

Nachdem schon seit einigen Tagen ein böser Geist in meinem linken Fuße gespukt hatte, ist endlich ein heftiges Podagra darin ausgebrochen, so daß ich unter heftigen Schmerzen auf einer Stelle liege u. es mir Mühe kostet, diese Zeile zu schreiben. Sobald das Wichtigste vorüber ist, was sich doch wohl bis Ende der Woche verziehen möchte, werde ich aber meine Badereise antreten [...]". - Weiters über das (hier nicht beiliegende Manuskript) zum "8ten deutschen Heft des Augusteum". - Wilhelm Gottlieb Becker war seit 1795 Inspektor der Dresdener kurfürstlichen sächsischen Antikengalerie und des Münzkabinetts und erhielt 1805 die Aufsicht über das "Grüne Gewölbe" und den Titel eines kgl. sächsischen Hofrats. "Becker schrieb Lyrik ('Gedichte an Elisen', 1775), übersetzte u. a.

        Autograph letter signed. N. p. o. d.

      1810. 8vo. 4 pp. To the organist of the Graz cathedral, Ludwig Carl Seydler (1810-88): "I should ask you, dear Mr Seydler, kindly to exchange the 16-stave music paper for another with only 14 or even 12 staves, should that be finer than the 14-stave one, because the 16-stave paper puts too great a strain on my eyes for my new work [...] I would also ask you to return to me my Lamentationes, my three-voice Miserere and my Tenebrae, because I wish to include the latter, as I would the Jerusalem convertere from the Lamentations and the Miserere, in my new Passion Week [...]". - Neukomm, a student of Michael and Joseph Haydn, went to Russia in 1804, serving as conductor at St Petersburg's German Theatre. In 1809 he went to Paris as a pianist with Talleyrand; his Requiem written in memory of Louis XVI was performed at the Vienna Congress. In 1816 he accompanied the Duke of Luxembourg to Rio de Janeiro, where he remained until 1821. He then returned to Talleyrand, remained in his service until his death in 1839, and travelled throughout Europe as a conductor, composer, organist, and pianist.

        Henry, Earl Bathurst. From an original picture in the possession of Sir George Thomas, Bart. Drawn by J. Wright, engraved by H. Meyer

      London: T. Cadell & W. Davies, 1810. Stipple engraving, 380 x 300mm. (plate size), a little toning at the margins, very good. Fine engraved portrait of Henry Bathurst, the Tory politician who instigated the Bigge reports into the convict system of New South Wales under the administration of Governor Macquarie. As Secretary of State for the Colonies from 1812-1827, Bathurst was intimately involved with affairs in New South Wales, and the present-day township bears his name. Concerned by the escalating cost of maintaining the colony, Bathurst ordered the Commission of Enquiry executed by John Thomas Bigge. Macquarie's administration was criticised in the outcome, especially his treatment of the convicts and ticket-of-leave men which was perceived as being too lenient. Ultimately, the Bigge report instigated by Bathurst led to the replacement of Macquarie by Major-General Sir Thomas Brisbane.

        Elegant Extracts. Poetry, 6 volumes; Prose, 6 volumes; Epistles, 6 volumes. Complete set of 18 volumes.

Uniformly bound in contemporary straight grained morocco, ornately gilt on the spines and covers with a central lyre device to the centre of each board. All edges gilt. Contained in a purpose built brass inlaid miniature cabinet bookcase, the moulded top centred by an inlaid lyre, matching that to the cover of each volume, over a glazed brass strung door, on ogee bracket feet, the whole 15 inches high. The wood was probably originally simply waxed and at some time in the past has been French polished. Each of the 18 volumes has a unique foredge painting of an English pastoral scene probably executed at a later date, hidden under the gilt foredge.

Hutin, rue Neuve St Eustache, 32, sending him a copy of a letter he has received from the Bishop of Strasbourg (Jean Pierre Saurine, 1733-1819) concerning the non-payment of a debt by a third party to Janvier. - II: 21 February 1810, to the same. The affair has a defect; Janvier hopes to avoid a judgement. - III: 6 May 1815, to Jacques René Tenon (1724-1815, surgeon, Member of the Institute), concerning a vacancy in the section 'Mécanique' at the Institut. The sheet has been heavily scored through with a resulting ink-burn (with minor loss), running diagonally across the letter. - IV: 26 October 1823 Claude Pierre Molard (1758-1837, mechanician, member of the Institute) soliciting his support in the forthcoming election of a mechanician to replace A. L. Breguet, deceased. - The four letters presented here are all unknown to biographers of Janvier and cast new light on the circumstances of his bankruptcy in 1810, on his acquaintances and collaborators, and on his efforts to gain admittance to the Institut de France.

        Autograph letter. N. p., 7. VIII. 1810.

      1810. 4to. 3 pp. With autogr. address. A fine letter to his sister Pauline Périer-Lagrange. Only a few days after being named an auditor with the Conseil d'État on August 3, 1810, Stendhal is pleased to report about his initial experience with this new position: "Tout va au mieux, ma chère amie, un homme inabordable m'a donné un audacieux entrainement favorable". Nevertheless he deplores his own financial situation by mentioning his continuing dependency on the fatherly support: "Malheureusement je suis au bout de mon trésor et dans cette aventure my father lends me four hundred Livres... une goutte d'eau au milieu d'un faible espoir". - Small damage to fol. 2 due to breaking the seal.

(Faux-titre, Titre), 207 pp. 1 carte manuscrite double montée sur onglets, dessinée à l'encre de Chine, et rehaussée au lavis et au crayon de couleurs. Demi-maroquin à coins framboise d'époque, dos lisse orné, pièce de titre de maroquin bleu, plats recouverts de maroquin à grains longs d'époque. Très agréable manuscrit composé de 20 lettres rédigées par Christophe de Villeneuve Bargemont (1771-1829) à la demande de ses amis, retraçant son voyage dans la vallée de Barcelonnette (Basses-Alpes). Il s'agit certainement du manuscrit original de l'ouvrage qui fut publié sous le même titre en 1815 à Agen chez Noubel. Le manuscrit est illustré d'une carte manuscrite, très finement exécutée et relevée au lavis, en guise de frontispice qui n'est pas mentionnée dans les collations de l'édition de 1815. Il est rédigé d'une écriture très lisible, et agréable. Provenance : à Dragon qui me l'a expédié le 28 juillet 1915. (Inscription à l'encre noire en page de garde). Belle condition. 1 vol. 8vo. 207 manuscript pp., 1 map drawn in pencil. Contemporary quarter morocco. Very pleasant manuscript, with 20 letters written by Christophe de Villeneuve for his friends, relating his travel in the valley of Barcelonnette (Alps). It most probably is the original manuscript of the work published in 1815 by Noubel, without the map. Fine condition.

        A new family herbal: Or popular account of the natures and properties of the various plants used in medicine, diet, and the arts.

      London: Richard Phillips (pr. by Richard Taylor & Co.) 8vo (24.1 cm, 9.5"). xvi, 901, [1 (adv.)] pp.; illus.. 1810 First edition: "A more complete and perfect herbal than has hitherto appeared . . . intended to unite the various advantages that have been derived to science from [Andrew Duncan's] 'Edinburgh New Dispensatory'" (p. vii). Compiled by an English physician and botanist remembered for his magnificent Temple of Flora, the present pharmaceutical treatise lists and describes the uses of 283 plants => illustrated with 261 wood engravings by Thomas Bewick. According to Johnston, this represents Bewick's "only attempt at botanical wood engravings," based on designs by Peter Charles Henderson. Dr. Thornton was the author of A Grammar of Botany and The Philosophy of Botany, as well as The Temple of Flora. In addition to the expectable lavender, chaste tree, burdock, lungwort, etc., also present here are discussions of Chinese smilax, coffee, tea, the Peruvian bark tree, ginseng, sarsaparilla, pimento ("Jamaica Pepper"), and tobacco. Provenance: Front cover with gilt-stamped armorial device of Dr. Alfred Freer of Stourbridge, Worcestershire: out of a ducal coronet, an antelope's head. Contemporary calf, covers framed in blind roll and single gilt fillet, spine with blind-tooled compartment decorations; binding rubbed and scuffed overall, spine label now absent with traces remaining, repair work to splits in spine leather and to short tear from inner margin of front free endpaper, joints and extremities refurbished. Front free endpaper with inked ownership inscription ("C.M.W.") dated 1912. Dedication tipped in. Pages gently age-toned with scattered foxing; small inkstain to upper fore-edge of first 30 ff., barely extending onto pages. One contents leaf with short tear (just touching text, without loss) and old repair in lower outer corner. A now solid, even rather distinguished-looking copy of a desirable pharmacopeia => exquisitely illustrated.

        The East India Vade-Mecum;

      London: for Black, Parry, and Kingsbury,, 1810. or, complete guide to gentlemen intended for the civil, military, or naval service of the Hon. East India Company. 2 volumes, octavo (210 x 120 mm). Attractive recent half sheep to style, gilt-tooled raised bands to spine forming compartments ruled with gilt fillets and dotted rolls, green labels to second compartments, volume numbers gilt to fourth within decorative lozenges gilt, marbled sides. 6 pp. publisher's advertisements to rear of vol. 2. Bound without the half-titles. Pale damping extending from bottom edges in both volumes, occasional spotting and soiling; lower outer corners of vol. 1 prelims and sig. B1 repaired with mottling to fore edge of earlier leaves, small chip to lower outer corner of vol. 2 sig. 2C2 not affecting text. A good copy. First edition of this "invaluable record of British social life in late eighteenth century India" by the author of Oriental Field Sports (Edwards, "Captain Thomas Williamson of India", in Modern Asian Studies, Vol. 14, No. 4 [1980], p. 682). Scarce: three copies only traced in auction records, and seven in British and Irish libraries; a digest by John Gilchrist appeared in 1825. Williamson provides an extraordinarily rich account of almost every imaginable aspect of life and society in Bengal, with descriptions of local customs, sanitary practices (including the novel art of "shampoing"), education, dress, social stratification, agriculture and cuisine interwoven with detailed advice for employees, ranging from the best route out (from Gravesend rather than Portsmouth) to recommended taverns, and reading lists for learning Indian languages. Williamson (1758/9-1817) spent twenty years as an officer in the Bengal army of the East India Company before being sent home to England in disgrace after allegedly writing a letter to the Calcutta Telegraph criticising the proposal of Lord Cornwallis to bring the army of the East of India Company under the control of the crown. He therefore became one of the first casualties in the patronage conflict between the British government and the East India Company, and "forced to find a new livelihood, Williamson brought his imagination into play and left a permanent record of his abilities in a number of published works" (idem), also including a three-volume romance called The Dominican, and some of the first transcriptions of Indian music in his 1st and 2nd Collections of Original Hindostanee Airs, opp. 4 and 9.

      Various places, 1810. Thirty-six pamphlets (two in contemporary manuscript), all in Spanish. Manuscript index at front. Small quarto. Contemporary half sheep and marbled boards, raised bands. Spine cracked and worn. Some minor worming, else internally very clean and crisp. Overall condition is quite good. An interesting contemporary collection of Spanish anti- Napoleonic tracts, most of an ephemeral nature, including daily news sheets from Cadiz and Havana reporting on military actions, biographies of Napoleon, a dramatic work, two brief manuscript items, works translated from other languages into Spanish, and pamphlets printed in Lima and Mexico. These items are all vehemently against Napoleon and the "barbarous French despotism," and represent the work of a busy and perhaps underground press in opposition to French control in Spain during a tumultuous period. The volume consists of the following items: 1) PREVENCIONES. Reimpresas en Lima. [1808?]. 8pp. Signed in print at the end by Juan Bautista Pardo. 2) PROCLAMA A LOS ESPANOLES, Y A LA EUROPA ENTERA, DEL AFRICANO NUMIDA ABENNUMEYA RASIS...SOBRE EL VERDADERO CARACTER DE LA REVOLUCION FRANCESA Y DE SU XEFE NAPOLEON.

        Gammer Gurton's Garland: or, The Nursery Parnassus. A Choice Collection of Pretty Songs and Verses, for the Amusement of All Little good Children Who can Neither Read nor Run

      London: Printed for R. Triphood, 1810, 1810. First complete edition, preceded by the first edition of 1784; in 1795 there was a second edition that both added and subtracted material; this 1810 edition restores the original text of 1784, the additions of 1795 and adds two parts with new material. NCBEL II, 1764; Bronson, Joseph Ritson, Scholar-at-Arms, pages 756-57. Paper with scattered light browning; a fine copy with wide margins.. 8vo, modern dark purple morocco by Philip Dusel, gilt decorations and lettering. A collection of famous children's rhymes, first compiled by Joseph Ritson in 1784. Ritson (1752-1803) the antiquary was interested in the "folklore of the nursery" (Bronson) and brought together 75 rhymes in Gammer Gurton, based in part on the famous Mother Goose's Melody, also published in 1784, but there are several well known rhymes in Gammer Gurton not in Mother Goose, including "London Bridge is Broken Down," "There was an old woman, she liv'd in a shoe," "The Man in the Moon came tumbling down," and "Hark, hark, the dogs do bark." Antiquary Francis Douce (1757-1834), a friend of Ritson with similar interests, later annotated a copy of the 1795 edition of Gammer Gurton with additional rhymes, and the material from that annotated copy was used to produce this expanded edition in 1810. Another antiquary, Joseph Haslewood, has been given credit for editing this edition. The number of famous rhymes in Gammer Gurton includes "The Cat and the Fiddle," "Bah, Bah, Black Sheep," "Patty Cake" "Jack and Gill," "Dickery, dickery, dock," "Yankey Doodle came to town," and "Tom Thumb the piper's son." In part IV of this edition are the first appearances in print of  form of "Humpty Dumpty" and "Little Bo-Peep." "Gammer" is an old English word for countrywoman, and the name "Gammer Gurton" was used in a few early English children's rhymes. ESTC records no copies of the 1784 edition of Gammer Gurton and only five copies of the 1795 edition.

      [New Haven, 1810. Map, 16 x 18 1/2 inches. Outlined in period color, faded. Light dampstaining to lower left corner. Lightly and evenly toned. About very good. Matted. The earliest issue of Amos Doolittle's map of Connecticut intended for separate sale, not as part of an atlas or other book. The first issue of this map was engraved for Carey's American edition of GUTHRIE'S GEOGRAPHY IMPROVED (1795), and also appeared in Carey's AMERICAN ATLAS that same year. This version is slightly larger than the original state, and the attribution line indicating publication for Mathew Carey has been removed, as has any plate number. Thompson notes: "in this state, the map is on a large sheet with generous margins, apparently issued for separate sale...some time after 1800....Amos Doolittle (1754) was a famous and prolific early Connecticut engraver whose work continued for some three decades after this date." The cartouche for this map of Connecticut is unchanged from the original through the 1814 edition of Carey's world atlas; by 1818 the plate had been retouched and the word "Connecticut" enhanced in the title.

Second Edition, Improved. Octavo (206 x 123 mm). Mid-19th century red morocco, gilt-banded spine with gilt ship motif in top compartment, two-line gilt border on sides, top edges gilt, prettily gilt-tooled turn-ins, drab blue-grey endpapers. 7 engraved plates (including illustrations of Hadley's quadrant, a sextant, & azimuth compass), diagrams in the text. An excellent copy with the half-title. Second edition, originally published in 1804; there was an American edition published at Philadelphia in 1807. With a very fitting provenance: from the library of Admiral Robert Dudley Oliver (1766-1850), with his armorial bookplate and ownership inscriptions at head of title page (dated 1812). "He entered the navy in May 1779, on the Prince George, flagship of Rear-Admiral Robert Digby, and in her, during the early months of 1780, was shipmate of Prince William, later William IV. Remaining in the Prince George, Oliver went to North America in 1781, and later to the West Indies, where he was present in the operations before St Kitts in January 1782 and at the defeat of the French fleet off Dominica on 12 April. After further service in North America and in the channel, Oliver was promoted lieutenant on 21 September 1790, and in 1793 was lieutenant of the Active in the North Sea; in 1794 he was in the Artois with Captain Edmund Nagle, and after the capture of the Révolutionnaire on 21 October he was promoted commander, taking seniority from the date of the action. In 1795 he commanded the sloop Hazard on the coast of Ireland, and on 30 April 1796 was posted to the Nonsuch, guardship in the Humber, which he commanded until February 1798, when he was appointed to the Nemesis (28 guns), going out to Quebec with a large convoy. In March 1799 he joined the Mermaid (32 guns), in which he went to the Mediterranean, and after a successful commission brought home Lord Hutchinson from Egypt in July 1802.
