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.

        MUKASHI GATARI SHICHIYA NO KURA: ANCIENT TALES OF THE PAWNBROKER'S STOREHOUSE.

      [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.

        THE UNCLE'S PRESENT, A NEW BATTLEDOOR

      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. See also Gottlieb, Early Children's Books and Their Illustration (Pierpont Morgan Library), no. 151. American Imprints 14251; Shaw 21546.

        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.

        Relación histórica y moral de la portentosa imagen de N. Sr. Jesucristo crucificado aparecido en una de las cuevas de S. Miguel de Chalma, hoy real convento y santuario de este nombre, de religiosos ermitaños de N.G.P. y doctor S. 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. A very good copy.

        Suplemento a la Gazeta de Caracas.

      Caracas: Gallagher y Lamb Folio (31 cm; 12.25"). 1 p.. 27 April 1810 Newspaper printing did not begin in Venezuela until October, 1808, when the press of Gallagher and Lamb arrived and printed, as its first product, the first issue of Andrés Bello's Gazeta de Caracas. 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. Worming in foremargin, touching two letters; repaired; small hole where paper was thin at center of leaf, taking a bit of a rule but no text. Pencilling in margins. A very good copy.

        Broadside, begins: "Manifiesto. La Provincia de Venezuela ha logrado por el ardiente patriotismo de los vecinos de la Capital la dignidad politica que debia tener entre los Pueblos cultos de la America ... ".

      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! Very Rare: This broadside was unknown to Medina and is only the 15th item in Pedro Grases chronological list of things printed in Venezuela.

        Meadow below the Flower Garden

      London: Published by White and Co, 1810. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving. Very good condition apart from some overall light foxing, mild rippling, and a small water stain in the bottom margin. A picturesque, tranquil view of the meadow adjacent to Hafod House from "Tour to Hafod," a fine collection of plates depicting the mansion and its surrounding landscape engraved by Stadler after drawings by Smith. Comprised of 15 views, Tour to Hafod also included comprehensive descriptive text by the scientist and collector James Edward Smith. The work was most likely intended as a tribute to the social benefactor and literary man Thomas Johnes (1748-1816), who devoted much of his life to his home region of Cardiganshire, where he served as a lord-lieutenant, a colonel in the militia, and an MP for the borough of Cardigan. Located in Cardiganshire, Western Wales, Hafodychtryd or Hafod for short, was Johnes's country estate. Hafod House, his principal residence, was erected in 1785 in the "gothic" style of Thomas Baldwin of Bath. Upon settling there, Johnes set about ameliorating the conditions of the local poor by providing them with comfortable housing and employing them in a planting project that would beautify the neighboring areas. In addition to his concern for social welfare, he was extremely interested in improving parts of Cardiganshire and actively involved himself in the building of roads and bridges. Born in Irthington in 1749, John "Warwick" Smith was an accomplished topographical draughtsman and watercolourist, who enjoyed the generous patronage of the Earl of Warwick. In addition to his fine engravings of Italy, he contributed numerous illustrations to topographical publications such as Select Views in Great Britain (1812), Views of the Lakes of Cumberland (1791-5), Tour through Wales (1794), and A Tour to Hafod (1810). In 1805, Smith became a member of the Watercolour Society, where he frequently exhibited his works. Cf. Abbey, Scenery of Great Britain and Ireland, 533; cf. Dictionary of National Biography.

        Upper part of the Pyran Cascade

      London: Published by White and Co, 1810. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and a few minor water stains in the left margin and top right corner of the sheet, the latter of which slightly extends into the top right corner of the image. A picturesque view of the Pyran falls near Hafod House from "Tour to Hafod," a fine collection of plates depicting the mansion and its surrounding landscape engraved by Stadler after drawings by Smith. In his text, J. E. Smith describes Pyran as "one of the most favourite water-falls" and explains how it "terminates an umbrageous glen in the most advantageous manner, opening upon the spectator by degrees, till the whole is seen in perfection" (p. 13).

        GEOGRAPHIE ASTRONOMIQUE

      [ - de (4), 221 pages, 12 s.l, [circa 1810], in-8, de (4), 221 pages, 12 planches de dessins et 1 grand tableau replié imprimé, demi-basane de l'époque, dos lisse portant une pièce de titre, Manuscrit inédit de vulgarisation d'Astronomie rédigé sous forme de questions/réponses et illustré de 12 planches de dessins dont 1 rehaussée de jaune. Suivant une tradition éditoriale qui existe depuis le milieu du XVIIIe siècle, certains des chapitres de ce manuscrit se trouvent être très proches de passage d'ouvrages tels La science des personnes de cour, d'épée et de robe (1752), l'Abrégé d'astronomie à la portée des jeunes demoiselles (1801), la Géographie des commençants par demandes et par réponses (1818), mais s'en différencient toujours par la longueur des réponses, le développement logique des démonstrations ou la formulation et la nomenclature du savoir astronomique enseigné. Divisé en 10 parties, l'ouvrage est précédé d'une table des matières à laquelle succèdent des Notions préliminaires, 5 chapitres sur la sphère, les corps célestes et le système planétaire, la lune, le globe artificiel et le mouvement diurne et annuel de la terre, puis, 14 "problèmes à résoudre [avec leur solution] sur le globe", un développement de 30 pages sur "le mouvement des planètes dans l'hypothèse de Copernic", des tableaux sur le diamètre des planètes, leur distance du soleil et leur révolution, une table inachevée des longitudes et latitudes des principales villes du monde, et enfin, une longue table alphabétique des matières. 4 feuillets de format in-16 de "Notes" sont joints à l'ouvrage. Rédigées d'une autre main, celle d'un professeur ou d'un collègue (?), ces "notes" critiques, corrigent, amendent et proposent des rectifications. Ainsi ces notes additionnelles d'un tiers laissent à penser que l'ouvrage était destiné à la publication, ou tout au moins, à être diffusé plus largement que sous la forme d'un manuscrit unique. En fin de volume douze planches dessinées à l'encre brune illustrent l'ensemble des chapitres par des schémas et des figurations astronomiques : les systèmes anciens et modernes, les phases de la lune, le fonctionnement des éclipses, la division de l’écliptique en douze signes, la division de la terre en cinq zones, "le diamètre du soleil et des planètes comparé à celui de la terre évaluée à la longueur d'une ligne", les satellites de Jupiter et de Saturne, et les mouvements du système solaire. Après ces planches un "Tableau [imprimé] du système planétaire" de Jean-Antoine Letronne qui fut publié en 1806 dans le volume 1 de la "Géographie statistique, hydraulique, etc." de Mentelle.

        Plate XXXVIII fromThe Aurelian A natural history of English moths and butterflies

      London, 1810. Hand-coloured engraving. Loss to right margin skilfully restored. A fascinating plate depicting several butterflies and moths and their pre-winged forms from 'a timeless classic' and the 'most celebrated of all the early books about butterflies and moths' (Salmon) in exceptionally bright and fresh condition. Lisney held that Harris was 'one of the most outstanding authors of entomological literature during the eighteenth century.' The present work is en example and displays a beautiful balance between accurate and innovative observation and the highest artistic merit. 'Harris began to take an active interest in entomology about the age of twelve and ... was an accurate and original observer. He was, it is believed, the first to draw attention to the importance of wing neuration [the arrangement or distribution of nerves] in the classification of lepidoptera and upon this principle he arranged the species in his published works, illustrating them in colour with a high degree of accuracy. Harris certainly contributed much to the knowledge of the science and was one of the leading entomologists of his century. He was also a miniature painter of no mean accomplishment' (Lisney p.156). 'Moses Harris did much to encourage entomology at a time when the original dynamism of the age of Ray and the first Aurelian Society was waning. He was probably the prime mover in founding the second Aurelian Society ... and in the unsurpassed plates of The Aurelian he left a timeless classic to future generations' (Salmon p.117). Hagen I, p. 341; Lisney 233; Nissen, ZBI 1835; Salmon The Aurelian Legacy (2000) pp.115-117.

        Un Bon Tiens Vaut Mieux Que Deux tu Auras [A Bird in Hand is Worth Two in the Bush]

      Paris, 1810. Colour-printed stipple. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition with the exception of some slight paper discolouration. Water stain lower left corner. Trimmed within plate mark on the side and top margins. Image size: 10 3/8 x 13 1/8 inches. A glowing impression of this charming stipple engraving, which is printed in the "a la poupée" method. This unusual print by Augrand after Mallet exemplifies a certain vogue for quasi erotic, decorative prints that swept through France during the Napoleonic era. Mallet had a reputation for luxurious mixes of beautiful women and cupids. Here in a scene that echoes Medieval and Renaissance Annunciation scenes, a happy young woman in the neo-Classical garb that became fashionable at this time embraces one cherub while another floats away, and the title invites her to be happy with the one she has. This plate is a lovely example of early colour printing, which was developed as a means of reproducing the effects of painting in oils. It exemplifies the single-plate colour-printing technique developed in England and quickly adopted by French engravers. The effect is achieved by inking a single plate with several different colours by using a rag stump, a process known as à la poupée . As this lovely print demonstrates, the outcome achieved by this laborious method of inking has a wonderful painterly effect and creates a delicacy of image, appropriate to its light-hearted message.

        The New Practical Navigator; being a Complete Epitome of Navigation: to which are added, all the Tables Requisite for determining the latitude and longitude at sea: containing the different kinds of sailing, and necessary corrections for lee-way, variation, &c. exemplified in a Journal at Sea etc.

      F. and C. Rivington, G. Wilkie and J. Robinson etc, London. 1810 - Eighteenth edition, enlarged and carefully improved, by Joseph Dessiou. Octavo. pp xvi, 336 + tables. 8 engraved plates including a frontispiece portrait, maps, charts, Hadley's quadrant and sextant, "a first rate ship of war"; at the rear are two folding planispheres of the stars. Quarter leather with marbled boards. The endpapers and blanks are densely filled with notes of a navigational nature, in Swedish, and in an exquisitely fine hand, such that they add to, rather than detract from, the book's condition. There are a few further notes in the text. The majority of them date from 1867. The tables at the rear are unnumbered but an approximate guess would put them in the region of 200 pages - they concern difference of latitude and departure, logarithms, artificial sines, tangents, and secants, finding the latitude by two altitudes of the sun, high water, &c. One page has been extensively repaired but is complete. Very good. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Hafod House

      London: Published by White and Co, 1810. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving. Good condition apart from some overall light soiling, a few mild surface abrasions in the margins, and several small tears and minor losses at the edges of the sheet. Light water stain in the lower left corner. A picturesque view of Hafod House from "Tour to Hafod", a fine collection of plates depicting the mansion and its surrounding landscape engraved by Stadler after drawings by Smith. Comprised of 15 views, Tour to Hafod also included comprehensive descriptive text by the scientist and collector James Edward Smith. The work was most likely intended as a tribute to the social benefactor and literary man Thomas Johnes (1748-1816), who devoted much of his life to his home region of Cardiganshire, where he served as a lord-lieutenant, a colonel in the militia, and an MP for the borough of Cardigan. Located in Cardiganshire, Western Wales, Hafodychtryd or Hafod for short, was Johnes's country estate. Hafod House, his principal residence, was erected in 1785 in the "gothic" style of Thomas Baldwin of Bath. Smith describes it as being "situated on a rising ground, in a rich and beautiful valley, watered by the river Ystwith, and encompassed with bold hills, richly wooded, or a great variety of forms. These woods abound with magnificent water-falls, formed chiefly by three mountain streams that empty themselves into the Ystwith in different parts of the valley, and are never dry." Upon settling there, Johnes set about ameliorating the conditions of the local poor by providing them with comfortable housing and employing them in a planting project that would beautify the neighboring areas. In addition to his concern for social welfare, he was extremely interested in improving parts of Cardiganshire and actively involved himself in the building of roads and bridges. Born in Irthington in 1749, John "Warwick" Smith was an accomplished topographical draughtsman and watercolourist, who enjoyed the generous patronage of the Earl of Warwick. In addition to his fine engravings of Italy, he contributed numerous illustrations to topographical publications such as Select Views in Great Britain (1812), Views of the Lakes of Cumberland (1791-5), Tour through Wales (1794), and A Tour to Hafod (1810). In 1805, Smith became a member of the Watercolour Society, where he frequently exhibited his works. Cf. Abbey, Scenery of Great Britain and Ireland 533; cf. Dictionary of National Biography.

        [Early 19th century American Manuscript Cookery Book]

      N.p., 1810. 13 x 10.5 cm, unpaginated [22 pages]. A charming collection of manuscript recipes, all in one hand, owned and compiled by an unidentified Emily Adams. Twenty-eight recipes for cakes, gingerbreads, cookies, and biscuits, including a Federal Cake, two Election Cakes, and Composition Cake (recipes that first appear in America in the late 18th and early 19th centuries). Twenty recipes simply list ingredients with no instructions, while the other eight are written in a narrative format. Of the eight just a few contain instructions beyond a baking time. The recipe proportions vary widely, from cookies with five cups of flour and one egg to a plumb cake that calls for forty-seven pounds of flour and thirty eggs. Many of the recipes call for pearl ash, a leavener that was in popular use between 1780 and 1840. In blue floral wallpaper wrappers, with the original cord mostly perished. Some chipping and edge wear, soiling, and minor foxing throughout, otherwise very good.

        Narrative of the operations of a detachment in an expedition to Candy, in the island of Ceylon, in the year 1804; with some observations on the previous campaign, and on the nature of Candian warfare.

      C. and R. Baldwin,, London 1810 - Respectable condition for a much read FIRST EDITION. This book is written by a military leader, and as such sees the country through that lens. He describes the land and the people, as well as how the British could adapt better to this very different environment and culture. As far as English writings go, this is a unique glimpse into native dwellers of Sri Lanka while they still maintained their independence and culture. Instead of a print-on-demand copy, you can enjoy an original copy of the book! This expedition happened during the last years of when Kandy (Candy) was still an independent Sinhala Kingdom in what is now known as Sri Lanka (Ceylon). It didn't officially fall under British rule until 1815. It was apparently a popular island kingdom, with a long history of repelling invasions, particularly once the Europeans gained a foothold in the 16th century. Full marbled leather binding. Binding is lightly shaken. Text block is solid and strong. Inside pages are free of writing and intentional marks. Spine has red title block with gilt lettering and bands. Ex libris plate on front pastedown. Perimeters of covers have gilt lines visible around all 3 sides, except where rubbed off. Covers exhibit expected wear from shelf and handling, including some dirt, scuffs, a few fine scratches, etc. Lower quarter of spine exhibits significant scuffing. Spine ends are chipped, exposing headbands. Corners of covers are bumped and rubbed with exposed board. Leather is peeling from back lower corner. Front shoulder is cracked nearly 2 inches from head. Stitching and pastedown are still intact. Back cover is mostly detached, being held in place by a thread and part of the back pastedown. Inside pages are darkened, with moderate scattered foxing/smudges. On some pages there is minor fading to the ink, yet it is still clear to read. Quite possibly was professionally repaired in early 20th century, gluing spine and adding new endpapers. Feps are age-toned with foxing, but much lighter than text block. Front pastedown has some pencil writing in addition to book plate, as well as ink sig of library on facing ffep. Pages 36-47 exhibit a stain in lower corner margin. Map was roughly torn from book, leaving only the legend. Book may exhibit additional minor signs of age or wear. 156 pages. 5.5 x 8.5 inches. Postage for oversized and international shipping will be calculated by size and weight. AbeBooks shipping quotes are ESTIMATES only. If actual shipping cost is less than the AbeBooks estimate, it is our practice to REFUND the difference to the buyer. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
