        THE DIER'S ASSISTANT IN THE ART OF DYING WOOL AND WOOLLEN GOODS Extracted from the Philosophical and Chymical Works of Those Most Eminent Authors Ferguson, Dufay, Hellot, Geoffery, Colbert, and That Reputale French Dier Mons. De Julienne. Translated from the French with Additions and Practical Experiments by James Hai

      Philadelphia, PA: James Humphreys, 1810. FIRST U.S. EDITION. Leather_bound. Very Good. First translated into English and published in Leeds in 1778, this is the first U.S. printing of this very popular book on the dier's craft. Three years later an edition was issued in Poughkeepsie, NY. Full period calf, measuring 7 3/8 x 4 1/2. Spine gilt-lettered, and double-ruled into five sections, the top section (only) with an extra set of decorative gilt lines. Text block darkened, with only occasional spots of foxing throughout. Wear and scuffing to extremities, but still solidly bound, with no obvious signs of repair. Mr. Haigh prefaces by touching on the laying-out, equipping and provisioning of a die-house, as well as the nature of the primary colours, going on to note that "all lasting colours are called colours of the great, and the others of the lesser die.". In keeping, Haigh has divided his compendium of dier's wisdom into three parts The first part comprises 216 pp in 29 chapters; Part II, comprising 11 chapters and t50 pp. . commences with "On the Dieing of Wool by the Lesser Die"; Part III, begins on p. 267, being entitled "Additional Articles", starts with a new Chapter I and disusses as die agents: flowers, fruits, leaves, madder, fustic, nephritic wood, logwood, the preparation of Prussian Blue, Alkanet-Root, Alum and Verdigris. The book concludes with a 17 pp. postscript, complete with its own preface, entitled: "A Hint to the Diers and Cloth-Makers, and Well Worth The Notice of The Merchant". The very last paragraph of the book reads: "The reader may be assured that what is here recited, is purely the result of the author's own experience (not theory), and part of the effects of many years study." A particularly detailed sample of the text runs: "...When this preparation is made, it is poured into a vessel filled with 250 quarts of urine; it matters not whether it be fresh or stale...the urine cast up a thick scum which was taken up with a broom and cast out of the copper. It was thus scummed at different times, till there remained a white and light scum..." (P. 61)

        A Concise Account of the Origin and Progress of the Rocket System. With a View of the apparent Advantages both as to the Effect produced, and comparative Saving of Expence, arising from the peculiar Facilities of Application which it possesses, as well for Naval as Military Purposes.

      3 p.l., 32, [1] pp. 4to, attractive antique diced half-russia & marbled boards, spine gilt. London: J. Whiting, 1810. Second edition, enlarged (1st ed.: 1807). Congreve (1772-1828), is best known for creating the first rocket weapons system and initiating the modern processes of research and development in rocketry. His greatest interest was in "improving and perfecting the rocket as a military weapon. England subsequently adopted 'Congreve rockets,' which were used with great success against the French at Boulogne, Copenhagen, Leipzig, and elsewhere. They were copied by most European armies by 1830."-D.S.B., III, p. 388. In the present work, Congreve discusses the possibilities which rockets had for military operations. He does not describe the actual rocket -- this secret he guarded zealously. This edition contains for the first time a "Postscript" dated 10 April 1810 which prints various favorable accounts by military men who had witnessed the rockets used in Belgium. Fine copy and rare. .

        Caroli a Linné species plantarum curante. Car. Ludw. Willdenow, tomus 5. Filices

      1810 - in-4 [190 x 240 mm], [52] , 1810, , in-4 [190 x 240 mm], [52] feuillets manuscrits à l'encre brune, broché, Copie manuscrite anonyme du volume de Willdenow concernant les fougères. Willdenow (1765-1812), botaniste et pharmacien, fut directeur du jardin botanique de Berlin de 1801 jusqu'à sa mort. Il augmenta la quatrième édition du Species plantarum de Linné, qui fut publiée à Berlin, de 1797 à 1830, en 6 volumes in-8. Willdenow a achevé la révision du Species en 1810, en y ajoutant un cinquième volume consacré aux fougères (filices). "Cette révision repose en majeure partie sur l'étude des collections personnelles de l'auteur et décrit 353 genres nouveaux et 4600 espèces nouvelles. Ce livre n'a plus rien de commun avec le Species plantarum originel de Linné, exceptions faites du titre et de la méthode suivie" (De Wit & Baudière, Histoire du développement de la biologie, t.3, p.154). Ce manuscrit, sous-titré Filices, constitue le début du tome 5 (1ère partie) de cette quatrième édition. Il s'arrête à l'aspidium pennigerum (n° 66 des aspidia), ce qui correspond à la page 245 du volume imprimé (Berlin, Nauck, 1810). La 2e partie du t. 5 fut publiée en 1830 par Schwaegrichen. Un deuxième cahier devait constituer la fin de la première partie du t. 5. La comparaison de ce manuscrit, non signé, avec le manuscrit 1448 de la bibliothèque du Muséum national d'histoire naturelle, intitulé Observations sur le genre dufourea par C.-L. Willdenow, lui aussi non signé, ne nous pas a permis d'établir s'il s'était de la main de l'auteur. En effet, ces deux manuscrits, qui sont d'une main différente, sont probablement tous les deux des copies des volumes de Willdenow. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Necessaries required for the Equipment of a Cadet.

      London: Cox and Son, Printers [for the Honourable East India Company],, c.1810. Small (125 × 86 mm) letterpress aide memoire on light card stock, printed both sides. Very good indeed. A remarkable survival, no other copy traced institutionally or commercially. Fascinating "shopping list" of essentials for a cadet shipping out for India. In Charles James's authoritative Regimental Companion of 1811, this card is specifically referred to in the section setting out "Preparatory Instructions to Persons who may be nominated Cadets in the Service of the Honorable East-India Company": "Upon the Cadet being approved by the Committee of Shipping he will be furnished with a card of necessaries for his equipment, a list of the Shipping, and the court's regulations as to the sums to be paid for accommodation on board ship" (p.103); and a slightly variant list of these "necessaries" is provided under the heading of "List of Necessaries that are absolutely required for the Equipment of a Cadet going out to India" (pp.105-6). The extent of the list gives a good sense of just how large the two trunks included on the list must have been, and James stresses that "the cadet's baggage is limited to a chest of necessaries, a trunk of necessaries, a liquor case, a hamper of wine, a cot and bedding" (p.105): "Â… 36 Callico Shirts, of which 6 to be Night Shirts, 12 Night Caps, 12 White Neck Handkerchiefs Â… 12 Pair Thin Breeches Â… 24 Pair Cotton Stockings Â… Cloth for complete Suit of Uniform, or two, as convenient, to make up in India Â… 12 Pounds of Soap, 6 Pounds of Wax Candles, 1 Flat Candlestick, &c., 1 Small Looking Glass Â… 14 pounds of Sugar in a Cannister Â…". The printer Edward Cox's workshop was located on Great Queen Street between 1790-1824, his son joined as a partner in 1799, and the firm became associated with East India House in 1809, which would be just about the time that this aide memoire was produced (see Todd's Directory of Printers, p.48). An official document of the East India Company, A part of the formal induction process, this pocket-sized card would have been presented to every one of the thousands of HEIC cadets who embarked for India - in 1806 the combined European strength of the three presidential armies was recorded as 24,500 (Imperial Gazetteer of India vol. IV 1907, p. 335) - yet this appears to be the only recorded survival. Attractive, and highly evocative.

      "Panorama van Arnhem genomen van het Hòtel de Belle-Vue' Lithografie vervaardigd door G.J. Thieme naar een tekening van Julius Gottheil (1810-1864), uitgegeven rond 1854 door P. Klinkenberg. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm.: 37 x 73 cm.We zien Arnhem vanaf het dak van Hotel Bellevue aan de Utrechtseweg. Het hotel brandde af in 1908, tegenwoordig biedt een kantoorgebouw met diezelfde naam vanaf die plek uitzicht op stad.Zes jaar nadat de eerste spoorlijn in Nederland, van Amsterdam naar Haarlem in 1839, was geopend, bereikte de ijzeren spoorweg Arnhem. De Rhijnspoorweg verbond Arnhem via Utrecht met de hoofdstad van ons land. Daarmee was een snelle, directe verbinding tussen Arnhem en het westen van het land gerealiseerd. De opening van de spoorlijn op 14 mei 1845, waarvoor koning Willem II zich wegens 'keelpijn" had afgemeld, ging gepaard met de ingebruikname van een stationsgebouw. Het gebouw had terrassen op de eerste verdieping met uitzicht op Sonsbeek en de Betuwe. Het gebouw was al snel te klein en in 1869 werd een robuust bakstenen pand het nieuwe onderkomen.De stoomtrein stelde mensen uit het westen in staat snel het groene en villarijke Arnhem te bereiken. Rechts naast de spoorlijn zijn grafzerken te zien van de voormalige Joodse begraafplaats 'De Valk" (geruimd in 1966). Schuin daarachter de hooiopslag voor de paarden van de soldaten van de Willemskazerne. De rokende schoorsteen naast molen 'De Harmonie" (gesloopt in 1855) is van de metaalgieterij van Willem Thomassen.In het midden van de stad zien we de Sint-Eusebiuskerk en op de achtergrond de Walburgiskerk. Op de fundamenten van de stadsmuur werden vanaf 1829 huizen gebouwd. Het zijn in de eerste jaren vooral Arnhemse handelaars en bankiers die nieuwe huizen laten bouwen op geslechte vestingwerken. Zij beschikten over financiële armslag door de groei van de overslaghandel over de Rijn met Duitsland en de aanleg van verharde rijksstraatwegen naar het Veluwse achterland. Achter hun stadspaleizen stonden nog de armoedigste krotwoningen stonden, verborgen 'zoodat het oog van de vreemdeling niet langer onaangenaam getroffen worde".Het spoornet rond Arnhem groeide snel. In 1856 werd de verlenging naar Emmerik, via Zevenaar, geopend en weer negen jaar later vond de opening plaats van de spoorweg naar Zutphen. In 1879 bereikt de spoorlijn ook Nijmegen.Prijs: € 3.450,- (incl. lijst).

      - London: Printed for S. Bagster, in the Strand, 1810. 12 mo (13 x 17 cm). Pagination summary: [18], [1]-215, [216-217] 218-246 and 6 fish engravings to text. The title-page is followed by the title-page of the 1653 edition with an engraved cartouche. Bound in contemporary full calf, gilt tooled spine, light rubbing to edges. A good tight copy, very scarce in this condition.The cartouch of the 1653 edition, this is the first edition, is peculiar and may be understood as a message avant la lettre. The artist arranged 4 dolphins and 2 bunches of fish around a plaque on which an advertisment is inscribed. It is a preludium to a bible text, John xxi, 3, inviting the disciples and probably also the reader to go a fishing. The combination of such a commendatory text and an appealing image is quite unique in seventeenth-century painting and drawing. There are six silver engravings of a trout, a pike, a carp, a tench, a perch and a barbel in the text printed on leaves which are on heavier paper and tipped in. There are two plates of music, the second printed upside down, complete and similar to as Coigney No 20. At the foot of the verso of the title-page is the printer¿s imprint ¿Printed by Mercier and Chervet, Bartholomew Close, London¿ and it also appears at the foot of page 246. See our hand-coloured copy of the 1810 edition as well. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Fred. Tatham and Brother Arthur

      1810 - Pencil on paper. Title in pencil "Fred. Tatham & brother Arthur". Signed in ink l.r. "J. Linnell f" A delightful and very intriguing early pencil portrait of Frederick and Arthur Tatham by acclaimed Victorian portraitist, John Linnell Frederick Tatham was born in 1805, his brother, Arthur, in 1808. The boys would appear to be about five and two in the drawing, which would put the date of the drawing at circa 1810. John Linnell (1792-1882) began drawing at quite an early age, his father was a framemaker and art dealer. In 1805 he was admitted to the Royal Academy School, having studied with Benjamin West and John Varley. At some point clearly he made the acquaintance of Charles Heathcote Tatham, architect, and father of the two boys depicted. Children are notoriously hard to draw, and Linnell succeeded in capturing both the characters and youthful energy of the two boys, especially the elder, Frederick. Curiously enough, the two boys and the artist were involved in a long term dispute concerning William Blake later in life. In the 1820's the Tatham boys, now young adults, and their sister Julia, became members of a circle of devotees of William Blake and his wife. John Linnell too had for a long time been part of Blake's circle. Frederick Tatham meanwhile had established himself as a portrait artist, working in a neo-Renaissance style that Blake thought superior to the contemporary Romanticism. All three men, Frederick and Arthur Tatham and John Linnell were "Ancients", those who after Blake's death sought to continue his spiritual and artistic work. When Blake died in 1827, Tatham took in his widow Catherine, nominally as a housekeeper for his young family. When she died in 1831, Tatham claimed that she'd left all of Blake's works to him. John Linnell maintained that the works ought to go to Blake's sister. Tatham held on to the works, and this brought about a very unfortunate consequence. Frederick Tatham at a certain point after this dispute joined a millenial sect, the Irvingites, who held strong moralistic views. These convictions led him to destroy some of Blake's works as having been inspired by the Devil. Frederick Tatham later wrote a Life of Blake that was published in 1906 in A. G. B. Russell's "Letters of William Blake". The baby in the picture, Arthur (1808-1878), later became a rector of several parishes and prebendary of Exeter Cathedral. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Woman. A Poem [autograph fair-copy manuscript of an early unpublished draft]

      N.p. [London], 1810. Wove paper watermarked "J. Ruse 1804". 8vo. Blank account book bound in vellum, stamped in blind on spine "Williams's 65 [--[ Patent," textblock sewn onto metal tabs, which have since oxidized and deteriorated, staining and damaging the spine, covers bowed, text is clean, written in a clear, legible hand. Wove paper watermarked "J. Ruse 1804". 8vo. An unrecorded fair copy of an early draft of Irish author Eaton Stannard Barrett's best known poetic work, published in 1810, and then re-written almost entirely for a second edition published in 1818. "In 1810 Barrett published Woman and other Poems. Written in the manner of Pope, 'Woman, a Poem' was, according to Reiman in his 1979 edition of it, 'more popular during Barrett's lifetime than any single work by a major or secondary poet then living, including Scott or Byron.' The volume ran into several editions, being reprinted as late as 1841" (ODNB). Barrett is perhaps best remembered today for his mocking take-off of the Gothic novel, The Heroine (London, 1813). A comparison between the present manuscript and the published first edition shows substantial differences and similarities. Barrett altered the overall structure of the poem by breaking what is here a continuous thread into four parts. The major textural differences: the published version has at least 52 more lines than the manuscript, and in addition there are 20 lines which have been substantially re-written. There are also a further (approx.) 340 words that have been changed. Conversely, the manuscript includes 12 lines that have been deleted from the published version.

Approximstely 15,000 pages. The Lives, which are critical as well as biographical studies, appeared as prefaces to selections of each poet's work, and most of them were longer than originally expected. [9] Johnson justified his approach in the advertisement for the work: "my purpose was only to have allotted to every Poet an Advertisement, like those which we find in the French Miscellanies, containing a few dates and a general character." [1] However, he did not limit himself to bare dates and biographical events, but created a series of Lives with, according to his Preface to the edition of 1783, "the honest intention of giving pleasure". Lives of the Most Eminent English Poets (1779–81) is a work by Samuel Johnson, comprising short biographies and critical appraisals of 52 poets, most of whom lived during the eighteenth century. It is arranged, approximately, by date of death. Six of the Lives have been singled out as the most "important": John Milton, John Dryden, Alexander Pope, Joseph Addison, Jonathan Swift, and Thomas Gray. Soundly bound in calf over marbled boards with crimson morocco labels. Light rubbing to extremities and a bit of quite light foxing. Overall a very pleasing presentation with all bindings straight and firm. ; 46 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Schloß mit Wassergraben, auf der Brücke ein Mann mit beladener Schubkarre. Oben rechts: "Nº 30". Von der früheren Besitzerin mit Tinte bezeichnet: L v P (Luise von Palombini). Auf der Rückseite ist der damalige Preis angegeben: "f 3.10" Sehr gute Erhaltung. Die Höhenleitnerische Kunsthandlung wurde 1807 von Heinrich Friedrich Müller übernommen und seit 1811 von ihm unter eigenem Namen fortgeführt (Sigmar Radau). Luise von Palombini (1807-1832), das älteste von 5 Kindern des italienischen Generals Giuseppe Federico oder Joseph Friedrich [von] Palombini (1774-1850). Dieser kämpft sich auf Seite der Republikaner in Italien hoch, dient im italienischen Korps der Grande Armée im Krieg gegen Preussen und Schweden (Belagerung von Stralsund 1807), später als Divisionsgeneral in Spanien, und kommt letzlich nach Italien zurück (1813). Als das napoleonische Reich zusammenbricht, nimmt er das Angebot an, in die österreichische Armee zu überwechseln und bekommt den Rang eines Feldmarschalleutnants. Er verbringt dann seinen Lebensabend auf einem Gut seiner Frau Caroline, einer Tochter des polnischen Generals und Freiheitskämpfers Jan Henryk Dombrowski, in Grochwitz bei Herzberg/Elster in Sachsen, was die deutsche Herkunft unserer Stickereivorlagen erklären könnte. Gewicht: 0,01 kg. Shipping: See our shipping terms. Versand: Siehe unsere Versandbedingungen. ENGLISH SUMMARY: Castle with moat, on the bridge a man with a loaded barrow. Gouache and watercolor on a copper-engraved raster, numbered "Nº 30". Inscribed by the former owner with her initials "L v P". Luise von Palombini (1807-1832), the oldest of 5 children of the Italian general Giuseppe Federico, or Joseph Friedrich [von] Palombini (1774-1850), who first fights in Italy on the side of the Republicans, and later serves in the Italian corps of the Grande Armée in the war against Prussia and Sweden (siege of Stralsund 1807). He then becomes a divisional in Spain and eventually returns to Italy in 1813. When the Napoleonic Empire crumbles away in 1814, he accepts the offer to go over to the Austrian army and obtains the rank of a field marshal lieutenant. He spends the rest of his life on an estate of his wife Caroline, a daughter of the Polish general and fighter for the freedom of Poland Jan Henryk Dombrowski, in Grochwitz near Herzberg/Elster in Saxony, which might well explain the German origin of our embroidery patterns. The Höhenleitner art shop was taken over 1807 by Heinrich Friedrich Müller who ran the business under his own name from 1811 on (Sigmar Radau). Very good conservation.

Occasional light foxing, with some leaves more noticeably age-toned than others; one page with line of discoloration along upper edge. => A nice example of early 19th-century engagement with medieval Biblical scholarship and style.

        [K. 527]. Il Dissoluto Punito osia Il Don Giovanni Dramma giocoso in due Atti... Ridotto per il Pianoforte da C. G. Neefe. [Piano-vocal score]

      Hamburgo: Giovanni Augusto Böhme [without PN], [ca. 1810]. Oblong folio. Contemporary half vellum with green marbled boards, decorative white cut paper label in the shape of a goblet with manuscript titling to upper. 1f. (pictorial title with vignette depicting a scene from the opera engraved by Wolf), [i] (blank), [i] (cast list and contents, grouped in four acts, in Italian but with German incipits only), 3-205 pp. Engraved. Watermark: "FCD" and fleur de lys with crown. Paper with a greenish cast. Printed text underlay in Italian and German; stage directions in German only. Musical numbers reordered and grouped in four acts. Boards slightly worn; rubbed and bumped at edges and corners; upper hinge split. Repair to small tear to lower outer corner of first page of music; one leaf dampstained. Sharp added in pencil to p. 183. A very good copy overall. / A later edition. Rare. Köchel 6, p. 598. Hoboken 11, 345 and plate 181 (same watermark as present copy). Hamburg, Öffentliche Bücherhallen (municipal library). RISM M4508. Böhme published several editions of the piano-vocal score; Köchel does not distinguish among them. RISM M4509 is not credited to Neefe; the copy at the Royal Danish Library in Copenhagen carries plate number 42. RISM M4510 (including Hirsch IV, 131) and the copy at the Staats- und Stadtbibliothek Augsburg are also different: the credit to Neefe is lacking; the word "Pianoforte" is misspelled "Pianoforto"; the contents are arranged in the original two acts (as suggested by the title) rather than the spurious four, and one number, the duet of Zerlina and Don Ottavio, "Ach Schätzchen, lass mich laufen" (i.e., "Restate qua"; composed later) is added; also, Hirsch cites plate number 300; not in the Augsburg copy, and a pagination running to 209. The pictorial title is basically the same as that of the first edition of the full score by Breitkopf & Härtel (1801); only the line crediting the reduction and the imprint are new.
