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 A Poem [autograph fair-copy manuscript of an early unpublished draft]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

      J. Johnson [And 48 Others],, London 1810 - 15000 pages; Abraham Cowley, Sir John Denham, John Milton, Samuel Butler (Hudibras) , John Wilmot, Earl of Rochester, Wentworth , Dillon, Earl of Roscommon, Thomas Otway, Edmund Waller, John Pomfret, Charles Sackville, Earl of Dorset, George Stepney, John Philips, William Walsh, John Dryden, Edmund Smith, Richard Duke, William King, Thomas Sprat, Charles Montague, Earl of Halifax, Thomas Parnell, Samuel Garth, Nicholas Rowe, Joseph Addison, John Hughes, John Sheffield, Duke of Buckingham, Matthew Prior, William Congreve, Sir Richard Blackmore, Elijah Fenton, John Gay, George Granville, Lord Lansdown, Thomas Yalden, Thomas Tickell, James Hammond, William Somervile, Richard Savage, Jonathan Swift, William Broome, Alexander Pope, Christopher Pitt, James Thomson, Isaac Watts, Ambrose Philips, Gilbert West, William Collins, John Dyer, William Shenstone, Edward Young, David Mallet, Mark Akenside, Thomas Gray, George Lord Lyttelton. 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]

      Höhenleitnerische Kunsthandlung, Kohlmarkt Nº 1218, Wien 1810 - Gouache und Aquarell auf Kupferstich-Raster. 129x183 mm. 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.

      London: Pr. by Richard Edwards for T. Hamilton et al. 4to (27.5 cm, 10.85"). Frontis., [2], lxxii, [2], 275, [1] pp.. 1810 First edition of Wycliffe's English translation as revised by John Purvey, with new preliminary material by the Rev. Henry Hervey Baber. Baber (1775–1869) was a librarian first at the Bodleian and then at the British Museum, and a Fellow of the Royal Society as well as an assistant preacher at Lincoln's Inn. The text is printed in double columns; it preserves the original 14th-century spellings and is decorated with ornamental capitals. The colophon incorporates the printing information of an earlier edition, sans Baber's contributions: "Printed by John March . . . MDCCXXXI . . . reprinted by Richard Edwards . . . MDCCCIX." Provenance: Front free endpaper with bookplate of John Howell and his small ticket to back free endpaper; early ownership inscription of Alexander B. Stewart to first page of "Memoirs"; later in the collections of the Pacific School of Religion (properly released). Binding: 19th-century medievally inspired calf, covers framed and panelled in blind with blind rolls and blind-tooled corner fleurons; spine with raised bands, gilt-stamped title, and blind-stamped compartment decorations. All edges gilt. Binding as above, edges rubbed, sides with small scuffs, joints repaired using long-fibre tissue toned to match binding; spine extremities chipped. Frontispiece with lower and inner portions waterstained (not into image), with some offsetting to title-page; title-page with ownership inscription effaced and other indicia as above. 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.

      St. Louis, Louisiana Territory (i.e. Missouri): Printed by Joseph Charless, 1810. Expertly bound to style in period tree calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, morocco label. Very good. One of the earliest Missouri, and therefore Trans- Mississippi, imprints. Following the Louisiana Purchase, Louisiana Territory was divided into two districts, with the upper district becoming Missouri Territory in 1812. This work is a supplement and revision to the first Laws of Louisiana Territory, printed at St. Louis by Joseph Charless in 1808. Charless was the first printer in Missouri. An Irish emigré, he fled to Philadelphia and worked for Mathew Carey in Philadelphia before relocating to Louisville and thence to St. Louis in the summer of 1808. Upon his arrival, he was made the official printer to the territory. An exceedingly scarce item; Lathrop Harper, sold an example in 1941 for $450. Only a handful of copies listed in OCLC.

      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.

Pike's narrative includes his account of his travels to explore the headwaters of the Arkansas and Red Rivers, as well as his earlier journey to the sources of the Mississippi River. He also relates his visit to the Spanish settlements in New Mexico. Along with the writings of Lewis & Clark, Pike's ACCOUNT must stand as the most important early work on western exploration. The maps, which Wheat considers "milestones in the mapping of the American west," are the first to show geographic knowledge of the area based upon first-hand explorations.

He devoted his energies in quite early life to the study of Asiatic languages, and published in 1802 his Asiatisches Magazin (Weimar, 1802-1803). He was in consequence called to St. Petersburg and given an appointment in the academy there. In 1805 he was a member of Count Golovkin's embassy to China. On his return he was despatched by the academy to the Caucasus on an ethnographical and linguistic exploration (1807-1808), and was afterwards employed for several years in connection with the academy's Oriental publications. In 1812 he moved to Berlin; but in 1815 he settled in Paris, and in 1816 the title and salary of professor of Asiatic languages and literature was procured for him from the king of Prussia, with permission to remain in Paris as long as was requisite for the publication of his works. In this scarce early work he is embarking on the study of Asian languages, particularly Chinese and demonstrating a close affinity between most Caucasian languages and North Asian dialects.

      [Edo 1810, Nishimura]. Original grey stitched wrappers, 4 of. 5 vols., lacks vol. 1, very thumbed, 24 woodcut illustations. some quite dramatic, several lower right corners torn/gone,. as is, only. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION RARE & IMPORTANT TITLE. A SUPERB CLASSIC OF JAPANESE LITERATURE AND FOLK-TALES Text by Takizawa Bakin [1767-1848] was one of the most famous novelists during the Tokugawa period. The illustrat- ions by Katsukawa Shuntei [1770-1820] * THE FANTASTIC ILLUSTRATIONS: As Takizawa wrote this story, he also made some simple sketches of what sort of illustrations he wanted to show with the text. He relied on several different artists of the day, including Hokusai, but had a falling out with him as he took too many "liberties" with his drawings. So Takizawa got Shuntei to work on this story's illustrations. As per a note he wrote to Shuntei [see Keyes, p.178, bottom plate 41,1] where in these instructions for the drawings were noted. Takizawa also stated that the title would be in 5 volumes, its title and other details. Keyes has also outlined a good part of the story and cited some of the more fantastic illustrations. "Jian Wu shoots the python" is superb [see our images on our web site, and figure 41.3 & 41.4 in Keyes, p.180-181]. Here we see the gigantic python as it swallows an elephant, both in Takizawa's imagined image and rough sketch, vs. how Bakin actually drew the final illustration. Figure 4.12 shows the monumental millipede with title: "Tawara Toda at the palace of the Dragon King shoots the millipede." [See Keyes citation below]. * THIS COPY: This copy lacks volume 1 otherwise is complete. The value of this work and copy mainly lies in the superb and quite fantastic illustrations. There are a good number of illustrations, per above fantastic examples of a giant centipede, and huge python, an elephant. Each of these are double-page illustrations, and even continue beyond the top margin exceeding the usual limits of woodblocks in the area above the top margin giving the appearance of "large scale" and a dramatic effect. An unusual technique but impressive ! * Another double-page illustration shows a very tall mountain on the left side of the page where it also exceeds the top margin to show it's extreme height and grandeur. Perhaps its Mt. Fuji. Other illustrations are impressive. There is one that uses "reverse" printing technique, with a black back- ground. * This is an important illustrated book and written text. That Keyes elected to illustrate 4 examples and devote two full pages of text attests to this fact. Keyes also cites the names of the calligraphers who did the text. * CONDITION: The covers are worn, scuffed and have some paste-on's, and the title slips are missing on vol.2, the balance are chipped and quite worn. The contents are printed on very thin Washi hand-made paper, and were easily thumbed and are now missing some parts of the lower right corner. Luckily, only some parts of text were lost or damaged. Due to the state of this book, there are no returns, adjustments, or refunds. By ordering you agree to these terms. Please inquire for additional scans and more description about condition if necessary. * FAMOUS BOOK: The work is famous and was acquired by the NYPL for the Spencer collection. The Keyes monograph was published in association with the NYPL as a supplement to the exhibition held at the NYPL October 20, 2006-February 4, 2007. The exhibition was a sensation.

      Philadelphia: Jacob Johnson, 1810. Uncomminly fine. Four leaves, the first and last pasted down to the covers, the 2 inner ones pasted together making 4 pages in all, containing 24 letters of alphabet cries in six compartments to a page; in the original covers with a flap reading COME, READ and LEARN; the front and back cover have at the top, "READ, AND BE WISE", below this an alphabet, a woodcut by A. Anderson, numerals, and on the front cover and the imprint of Benjamin Warner, 147 Market Street, without date; the lower cover has the lower case alphabet in roman and italic letters, a different woodcut, the numerals, and no imprint. (Cataloguing from Rosenbach's Early American Children's Books. p. 164). "The cries illustrating the alphabet are a very pretty set, and are probably an early set of Newcastle or York Cries by Bewick... The Battledore was an offshoot of the hornbook, and was printed on the double fold of stiff cardboard with the extra piece folded over in order to fit it for the double purpose it had to serve. In school it was used for teaching children the alphabet, whilst out of school it served as the battledore in the game of shuttlecock and battledore." (Rosenbach no. 428). Hamilton suggests that the woodcut on the front cover may be by William Mason. (Hamilton. Early American Book Illustrators and Wood Engravers, no. 1014). Welsh 1363.

        Wild Ducks

      London: Published at R. Ackermann's Repository of Arts, 101 Strand, 1810. Mezzotint. Printed on wove Whatman paper watermarked 1806. Lettered proof, state ii/iii. In excellent condition. Image size: 13 5/8 x 17 1/8 inches. A charming proof mezzotint by Charles Turner after James Barenger depicting wild ducks. 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 wild ducks 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.

Agustin, en esta Nueva España, y en esta provincia del santísimo nombre de Jesús de México. Con los compendios de las vidas de los dos venerables religiosos legos y primeros anacoretas de este santo desierto, F. Bartolomé de Jesús María, y F. Juan de San Josef.

      [Mexico] : Casa de Arizpe Small 4to. [7] ff., 386 pp., plt.. 1810 One has here the sole edition of the standard and well-thought-of account of the Sanctuary of Jesus Christ at Chalma, the second most visited pilgrimage site in Mexico. The cave housing the Christ Crucified statue was a pre-Columbian sacred site and pilgrimage destination; miraculously the pre-Columbian statue with magical healing power morphed into the Christ image soon after it was visited by early Augustinian friars, who took over the cave and the surrounding area and build a church and religious compound. The original Christ statue was destroyed by fire in the 18th century. In addition to the wealth of information here about the origins of the cave as a site of miracles, its history throughout the colonial period, and accounts of miracles occurring there, this work also has important biographies of Augustinians of the 17th century who played important roles in the care and perpetuation of the site. The engraving shows the cave, the Christ figure, pilgrims, and Augustinian friars. 19th-century mottled sheep, abraded, missing spine label; spine is cracking down center, and volume may sometime split into two halves. Some brown stains, most notable in inner and upper or lower margins; lower outside corner of title–page neatly excised. Old ink notes and scribblings.

        Broadside, begins: "Cancion Patriotica de Caracas.

      Caracas: Gallagher y Lamb Folio (31 cm; 12.25"). [1] p.. 1810 In the days immediately following the coup that deposed the viceroy and began the long process of independence, Andrés Bello, Venezuela's first great poet, collaborated with Cayetano Carreño, “Maestro de Capilla” of the main church of Caracas, in the composing of several “patriotic songs.” One of those early efforts became the national anthem of Venezuela, and => the premiere of this one, as unknown as that one is famous, is stirring to visualize. Beginning, “Caraqueños, otra época empieza: / De la gloria la senda se abrio,” it was sung for the first time by Cayetano Carreño himself and six other voices, the night of 23 April 1810, with the accompaniment of the military orchestra of the “Batallon Veterano.” The performance took place below the balcony on which were assembled the members of the Supreme Junta. That Bello wrote this patriotic song is known, and even the first few lines were recorded for history, but beyond that => the text is not recorded and is not found in his Obras completas or, apparently, anywhere else. In addition to the historic collaboration of Bello and Carreño, this fabulous document has the distinction of having been printed by Venezuela's first press, that of Gallagher and Lamb, which only arrived in Caracas in October of 1808, and was almost certainly printed on 24 April, the day after the hymn was first sung! Very Rare: This broadside seems to be completely unrecorded. It was unknown to both Medina and Pedro Grases. Searches of NUC, WorldCat, CCILA and COPAC fail to find any copy at all, as is the case when searching the OPACs of the national libraries of Venezuela, Colombia, Spain, France, and England. As issued. Worming in foremargin, repaired. A very good copy.

        Broadside, begins: "Proclama que hizo Don Francisco Rivas y Galindo, joven de edad de quince años, hijo de Don Valentin Rivas uno de los SS. Vocales de la Suprema Junta Gubernativa de Caracas, à los habitantes de Venezuela.

      Caracas: Gallagher & Lamb Folio (31 cm; 12.25"). 1 p.. 20 April 1810 Young Rivas, son of one of the leaders of the first independent government in Venezuela, calls on all Venezuelans to unite, saying "the inhabitants of this city" have overthrown an illegitimate government, have established a "supreme authority," and are now breathing "the air of Independence." He points out the remaining provinces are the body of the new nation and that without them Caracas is merely a bodyless head. "Unite or die" is his plea, and by doing so, "[w]e will form a nation that will know how to maintain the honor of the Spanish people and that will make all others respect us." The origins of printing in Venezuela are still, at this late date, shrouded in shadows. There remain questions of whether itinerant printers established themselves now and then for short periods of time, printing a form or booklet — and definitely some playing cards — and then moving on. The accepted date for "the beginning" of printing in Venezuela is October, 1808, with the arrival of the press of Gallagher and Lamb and the issuance of the first issue of Andrés Bello's Gazeta de Caracas. Very Rare: This broadside was unknown to Medina and is only the 16th item in Pedro Grases chronological list of things printed in Venezuela. In his entry he located only the copies in the Public Record Office (London) and the Archivo de Indias (Seville). Searches of NUC, WorldCat, COPAC, and CCILA fail to find any copy at all. Further, no copies were found when searching the OPACs of the national libraries of Spain, Venezuela, Colombia, France, and England. As issued; minor worming in foremargin; repaired.

The news that Andrés Bello gives to eager readers in this supplement concerns the total occupation of Madrid by Napoleon's forces, the fleeing to Gibraltar of 5000 Spanish soldiers, and other distresses that the Spanish army was suffering. Rare: Charno locates copies of the supplement only at the Newberry and University of Texas libraries. As issued.

      Caracas: En la imprenta de Gallagher y Lamb Folio (43.4 cm; 17"). 1 p.. 1810 Both Llamosas and Tovar Ponte were leading figures of the early Independence movement in Venezuela. Both served as president of the Junta of Defense of the Rule of Fernando VII (later, The Revolutionary Junta), Llamosas 19 April – Aug 1810, and Tovar Aug 1810 – 2 March 1811. Additionally Tovar Ponte, the favorite son of an elite family, was a member of the 1811 Congress and a signer of the Venezuelan Act of Independence. In this decree Llamosas and Tovar Ponte explain the coup d'etat of 19 April in which the viceroy was deposed and a caretaker government was installed. Although stating loyalty to the imprisoned Spanish king, the revolutionaries repeatedly use the terms "independent" and "independence." This historic document was printed by Venezuela's first press, that of Gallagher and Lamb, which only arrived in Caracas in October of 1808, and it is universally dated as having come off the press on 20 April 1810!
