        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]

Seit 1741 wirkte K. als Hausmusiklehrer- und Musikdirektor bei polnischen Adeligen und wurde 1754 Violinist der Kapelle des Prinzen Heinrich in Rheinsberg. 1758 nahm er eine Anstellung als Kompositionslehrer, Kapellmeister und musikalischer Berater bei Prinzessin Anna Amalia von Preußen an. Er hatte Kontakt zu Schülern und den Söhnen Bachs, seine meist in Sammeldrucken erschienen Kompositionen, u.a. Lieder, Klaviersonaten, Motetten, Choräle, wurden durch Carl Phillip Emanuel und Johann Sebastian Bach beeinflußt. In der von ihm etablierten \"Amalien-Bibliothek\" sammelte er zahlreiche Werke Johann Sebastian Bachs. K. verfaßte u.a. Die Kunst des reinen Satzes (2 Bde., 1771-79).

        Broadside, begins: "La Suprema Junta Gubernativa de esta Capital, ha recibido con la mayor satisfaccion el voto sincero y generoso de muchos individuos Españoles Enropeos [sic] de Comercio de esta Ciudad ...".

      Caracas: Gallagher y Lamb Folio (43.4 cm; 17"). 1p.. 20 April 1810 On the day after the coup d'etat that deposed the viceroy, the leaders of the governing junta in Caracas announce that many of the city's Spanish and European merchants have given their support to the new government. Whether they did so willingly or because of pressure is not known, but this is clearly a statement that is directed at both the hold-out merchants and at those hotheads who might seek to extract compliance extra-governmentally. Llamosas and Tovar Ponte were among the 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 on 5 July of that year. 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! This broadside was unknown to Medina and is only the 14th 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 Venezuela, Colombia, Spain, France, and England: Evidently, this is only the third known copy. As issued. Worming in fore-margin, touching but not costing three letters; repaired. A very good copy.

Encuadernación en material tipo geltex de baja rugosidad, color escarlata, ela-borada de manera muy limpia en las décadas de 1970 o 1980; hojas algo cortas de márgenes y con leves puntos de óxido; sin datos de procedencia.- Cada grabado incluye 24 viñetas, 12 de ilustración y texto y 12 de texto explicativo, narrando la historia de España desde Tubal hasta el reinado de Felipe V.- El formato de los grabados obedece a que estaban destinados a estamparse en cartoncillo ligero para que cada ilustración y el texto que la explicaba pudiesen recortarse y componer con ellos el envoltorio de los librillos de papel de fumar (1). Comenzaron a ilustrarse para favorecer la venta de unos envoltorios frente a otros y la mejor fortuna de algunas de esas historias hacía que en esas ocasiones también se estampasen en papel de mayor calidad, como en este caso, para ser recortados y encuadernados en un formato de libro de ilustraciones. Ofrecemos dos ejemplares de esta estampación sobre papel de mayor calidad, una en cada variante: la serie completa en su formato y dimensiones originales, y otra, igualmente completa, encuadernada en el formato libro previsto. De la serie completa de estos grabados, únicamente localizamos un ejemplar en bibliotecas españolas, aunque guillotinados y recortados al formato apaisado de 24 hojas, sin encuadernar, en la reserva de la Universitat de Barcelona, donde ha sido digitalizada e incluida en la colección Memòria Digital de Catalunya . Otro ejemplar, guillotinado como el de la Universitat, se exhibió en el verano de 2014 en una exposición de materiales efímeros en la biblioteca de la Universidad de Castilla-La Mancha, pero pertenece a la colección de un particular. Finalmente, el Museu Maritim de Barcelona dispone asimismo de una parte de los grabados, pero en su presentación recortada viñeta a viñeta (col. grabados inéditos, i.e. 17518). La Biblioteca de la Universidad de Barcelona data, los grabados entre 1800 y 1802, aunque a nuestro parecer serían de la década de 1810.- // (1) Rafael León: 'Papel de fumar', Revista de folklore 10 (1989) 102: 199-209.

Par extension, nous considérons le cahier C comme le 3e cahier du premier tirage. Sur les tirages ultérieurs, l'ordre numérique des cahiers diffère. Nous avons donc : Cahier A (1er cahier), "Mélanges de vaisseaux, de barques et de bateaux", 8 estampes [135 x 110 mm à la cuvette] gravées dans la hauteur, soit : l'estampe titre n° 1 et les n° 3, 5, 7, 8, 9, 11 et 12.

        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. In his entry he located only the copies in the Public Record Office (London) and the Archivo de Indias (Seville). Searches of NUC, OCLC, and RLIN fail to find any copy at all. Further, no copies were found when searching the OPACs of the national libraries of Venezuela, Colombia, Spain, France, and England. As issued, but one later fold. Worming in upper and lower margins; repaired. Pencilling in margins. 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.

        Letter signed („Nap").

      , 8. III. 1810. - 4to. 2 pp. French. Letter to his adopted son Eugene. In part (translated): "I have attentively read the account of the Italian Navy that you sent to me. I am all the more aware of the importance of using ships to prevent the enemy from blocking the Gulf with one or two frigates. I will wait for your report to know whether the ships of the line will be able to sail out. I see that the Rivoli and the Reginatore are not far from completion. The Favorite must be finished promptly. Once these frigates have been finished we can arm them with French crews from the three brigs that are in Venice. The frigate in Trieste could also join them which would make for a division of three frigates that could go to Ancona to join the frigate and brigs there and form a division capable of maintaining the mastery of the Gulf and which would oblige the enemy to keep warships there. I see Ancona not Venice, because Ancona has the advantage totally lacking to Venice, of our being able to enter or leave no matter what the winds it is better to have brigs that can sail out and survey the Gulf without interruption [.]". - In fine condition, with central horizontal and vertical folds.

        Widgeons

      London: Published at R. Ackermann's Repository of Arts, 101 Strand, 1810. Mezzotint. Printed on wove paper. Lettered proof, state ii/iii. In excellent condition, with the exception of six skillfully mended tears on bottom margin, not extending near image. One small tear on bottom margin. Image size: 13 5/8 x 17 1/8 inches. A charming proof mezzotint by Charles Turner after James Barenger depicting a pair of widgeons. 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 widgeons 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.

      A Paris chez Bance ame M. d'Estampes rue St. Denis and a' Milan chez Joseph M. et Frere Ubiemi M. d' Estampes rue des Servi n. 506 Editeurs, 1810. Stipple with engraving. Printed on laid paper. Collectors blind stamp of a bee in lower right corner of title space. In excellent condition with the exception of a creased lower right corner. Trimmed just outside platemark on all sides. Crease on right edge outside image. Some creasing and paper loss on upper right corner. Image size: 24 5/8 x 16 7/8 inches. A captivating portrait of Marie Louise of Austria, Napoleon's second wife. This is a magnificent print of Marie Louise of Austria executed in 1810, the year of her marriage to Emperor Napoleon. In 1809 when Josephine, Napoleon's first wife, failed to give him a son, the Emperor divorced her. He based this action on the spurious grounds that a parish priest had not been present at their marriage, but it was well known that this decision resulted from his desire for a male heir. Two months later he married Marie Louise, the daughter of Francis II, Emperor of Austria, and great-niece of Marie Antoinette. The marriage did nothing to end the enmity between France and Austria, but in 1811 Marie gave birth to a son, Francois Charles, who was made king of Rome. This captivating print depicts Marie at one of the most pivotal moments of her life. She is portrayed as being both innocent and magisterial, fashionable as well as reserved which results in a hauntingly beautiful portrait of this young bride. Rados's print recalls the portrait of Marie, executed in the same year, by Jean Godfrey. Both works are monumental in size and depict the young princess in a park setting. The detailing of Marie's dress and the level of intricate detail in Rados's image, is nothing short of magnificent, and his soft engraving technique gives this print a delicacy, which is immensely appealing. From the collection of William J. Latta of Philadelphia, a 19th century collector of Napoleonic material.

        The Vestibule of Eloquence. Original articles, oratorical and poetical, intended as exercises in recitation, at the institution, Bedford Place, Russell Square. By . professor of the science of practice of elocution.

      Printed, for the author, by J. M?Creery, Black Horse Court . 1810 [1813] - FIRST EDITION. Library stamps on title which is a little browned and with sl. tear to inner margin, not affecting text, repaired with archival tape. Library binding: 20thC plain brown cloth. With library stamps & label. Five copies only on Copac, including BL where it is described as ?a collection of articles and exercises, separately published and variously dated, with a new general titlepage prefixed? No copy recorded on ABPC. By the radical thinker, political agitator, abolitionist, and anti-war campaigner, John Thelwall, 1764-1834. Thelwall was born in London, the son of a silk merchant. His father died when he was young, and his education was still far from complete when he was compelled to leave school and contribute to the running of the family business. He appears to have shown little desire for a career in the silk trade, and was instead drawn to literature and the arts. The French Revolution took place as he was forging his political identity, and he was immediately drawn towards the politics of upheaval, and railed against social injustice. He became a prominent dissenting voice in the late 18th century, popular with radicals for his passionate and persuasive oration. Thelwall was moved to withdraw from radical politics as a result of Pitt the Younger?s clampdown on political dissent, which came in the form of the Treason Act and Seditious Meetings Act, both given royal ascent in 1795. He judiciously chose to curb his more firebrand tendencies, moving away from direct criticism of the government, and instead lecturing on apparently safer topics such as corruption in Ancient Rome. But by 1800, unable to escape the attentions of ever-watchful government loyalists, Thelwall withdrew completely from the public eye, and instead re-invented himself as a Professor of Elocution, establishing, with the help of his wife, a small school in London. This volume, comprised of three separately published works bound together with a new titlepage and contents leaf, forms a prospectus for Thelwall?s institution, as well as providing an overview of his educational philosophy, and providing the student with readily available exercises. This is a modified version of the 1811 edition, with the Plan & Objects occupying 15pp (rather than 32pp), and signed Feb. 12th, 1813. It does not include the Terms of Instruction for House Pupils.

Imprint dates suggested by typography (per the AAS record). The extracts are from laws dating back to An act for the due regulation of licensed houses, passed Feb. 28, 1787. light toning to sheet, some leght wear to untrimmed edges.

        Broadside, begins: "Cancion Patriotica de Caracas.

      Caracas: Gallagher y Lamb Folio (31 cm; 12.25").. 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.

        Architectural decorations: a periodical work of original designs invented from the Egyptian, the Greek, the Roman, the Etruscan, the Attic, the Gothic &c. for exterior and interior decoration of galleries, halls, apartments &c either in painting or in relief and whatever relates to furniture

      London: published by Landi, sold by Thos. King Jun, 1810. Imperial folio. (21 x 16 inches). Engraved calligraphic title, 30 hand-coloured aquatint plates, by G. d'Argenzo after Landi, the 7th plate with a slip pasted on as part of the title. Contemporary red morocco gilt, covers with wide decorative border in gilt and blind, composed from fillets, roll tools and star tools at each corner, expertly re-backed to style in red morocco, the spine in seven compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second, the others with repeat decoration in gilt, contemporary marbled endpapers Very rare series of beautiful and unusual design treatments for buildings, rooms and accessories. Each of the five styles (Greek, Roman, Gothic, Egyptian and Chinese) are represented by six plates (numbered [1]-6; 6 unnumbered; 13-18; [1]-6; and unnumbered. Landi, according to the title, was a professor at the University of Bologna and a member of the Clementine Academy, and he issued the present work from his address at the Sablonnière Hotel in London. This work is very rare: over the past thirty years only two other copies are listed as having sold at auction (one of which included only 24 plates). Landi appears to have issued at least two other equally rare works of a similar nature ( A Collection of Designs of Architecture, Decorations and Ornaments London: 1810, and Original Designs for Exterior and Interior Decorations, London: 1810). A copy with 30 plates which sold at auction (Christies 30 October 1996, lot 85) was in a binding made up from the original boards rebacked, but was described as appearing "to be complete". The present example has the plates bound in a different order to the Christie's copy but is otherwise the same. Lowndes II, p.1305.

        [An album of twenty four views in India]

      Calcutta, 1810. Folio. (22 x 17 inches). 24 uncoloured aquatints by Moffat. Expertly bound to style using half 18th-century diced russia over marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spine divided into six compartments by double gilt fillets, lettered in gilt in the second and third compartments, modern morocco-backed cloth box, spine gilt A fine and very rare album of Moffat's highly important views of India. In its entirety, this album represents the greatest series of aquatint views ever printed in India. We have occasionally been able to offer individual prints by James Moffat, but this is the first album that we have ever encountered: collections such as this are of the greatest rarity. The twenty four plates make up three different series, and were originally assembled in about 1820. All the plates are on laid paper, the majority with watermarks including dates. The three series are probably as follows: a series published in about 1804, a second published in about 1810 and the third group of four plates are from drawings of Gaur by Henry Creighton. Little is known of Moffat. Mildred Archer writes that he 'was a Scotsman living in Calcutta from 1789 to 1815. He appears to have learnt his profession of painting and engraving in India. In 1798 and from 1805 to 1810 he produced views of towns on the Ganges and Hooghly, and in 1808 engravings from Henry Creighton's drawings of Gaur.' The plates are bound and titled as follows: 1.`View of a Mosque at Chunar,' I.Moffat. sculp.1810 (watermarked 'S.Wise & Patch 1807') 2.'View of the large pagoda at Nuddea,' drawn and engraved by I. Moffat (watermarked 'J. Whatman 1804') 3.'View of Agra, on the River Jumna,' I.Moffat, sculpt.

        [A BOUND COLLECTION OF TWENTY EARLY 19th-CENTURY AMERICAN MUSIC SHEETS]

      [Mainly New York, Philadelphia, & Boston, 1810. Folio. Modern backstrip over contemporary marbled boards, spine label and endpapers renewed. Corners worn, boards rubbed. Minor foxing and toning, some dampstaining. The second page of "The Moment is Sad" is lacking, otherwise complete. Good. A wonderful collection of early American sheet music, mostly American imprints, most printed on two pages. The printers of these early sheets include some of the most notable names of the period, such as Hewitt, Graupner, Blake, and Paff. Dichter & Shapiro, in the Introduction to their EARLY AMERICAN SHEET MUSIC, include these four publishers in a list of names they deem "eminently worth while." The highlights of the songs within the book are as follows: 1) Fortune, Michael: "Jefferson & Liberty. A New Song. To the Air of Jefferson's March." Philadelphia. 1801. First edition. The most notable music sheet in this collection. Fortune, an Irish immigrant, wrote the song to commemorate Jefferson's election and sent Jefferson a copy of the song. The music was published by the first American antiquarian bookseller, N.G. Dufief, who at the time he published this was trying to sell Jefferson Benjamin Franklin's library for the Library of Congress. For whatever reasons (jealousy? self-interest?) Jefferson turned him down, and Dufief auctioned it in 1803. Perhaps Dufief hoped to advance his sale by sponsoring this publication. Very rare, with only one copy listed in OCLC, at Oxford University. WOLFE 4607. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 734. 2) "The Downfall of Paris." Boston. [1806]. First state, with no page number. One printed page of music, with no lyrics. WOLFE 2737. 3) "The Battle of the Nile: A Favorite Patriotic Song." Philadelphia. [ca. 1804]. First printing by this publisher. A paean to Nelson's victory over Napoleon in Egypt. WOLFE 461. 4) Mozart: "Away with Melancholy." New York. [ca. 1795]. An early printing of this song, an excerpt from THE MAGIC FLUTE. SONNECK & UPTON, p.35. 5) Briggs, Edward Smith: "A Hindustani Girls Song. Tis thy will and I must leave thee." New York. [ca. 1800]. "Soon a british fair will charm thee, thou, alas! Her smiles must woo / but tho' she to rapture warm thee, don't forget thy poor HIN-DOO." SONNECK & UPTON, p.188. 6) [Gaveaux, Pierre]: "La Pipe de Tabac. A Favorite French Song." New York. [ca. 1800]. Not in Wolfe. SONNECK & UPTON, p.332. 7) [Gaveaux, Pierre]: "The Dish of Tea or Ladies Answer to the Pipe Tabac." [New York. 1802]. WOLFE 2896. SONNECK & UPTON, p.110.

      Paris: Schoell. 1810. Hardcover. Very Good. One volume (title page says 1810), large folio (approx. 23 x 17 inches), incomplete, but containing the majority of the colored plates including Le Chimborazo. In late 19th Century quarter cloth and marbled boards, with half title, and two title pages, pp (10), 1-52, 125-274, plates 1-49 on 48 sheets, 17 of which are hand colored and three of which are acquatints tinted sepia. Usually found in 2 volumes published between 1810 and 1813 with 69 plates on 68 sheets; this copy lacks the last 20 plates and significant parts of the text -- apparently lacks pp. 53-124 of the text, and pp. 275-350. Very wide margins, the plates are very good with some occasional foxing, especially plate 49 in b/w. This copy with library bookplate on pastedown with proper withdrawn stamp, heavy foxing and some wear to first page (half title) and some moderate to heavy foxing to prelims. Has the magnificent double page hand colored plate no. 25 of Le Chimborazo (very good) and a number of other handcolored acquatint landscape views, the coloring apparently supervised by von Humboldt himself. Complete copies sell for over $25,000. Field 739; Hill pp 148-9; Palau 117026; Sabin 33754.

        Tylogé Bridge

      London: Published by White and Co, 1810. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving. Good condition apart from some overall light soiling and foxing, mild mat burn, and two minor creases, one of which extends through the center of the image. Trimmed on all sides. A picturesque view of a bridge built by Johnes in the wooded area 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.
