A fine wide-margined copy, bright, crisp. Re-backed. "Scrat" is defined as "an hermaphrodite, used of men and animals, and, groovers as miners."

        La Guerre de l'an 1809 entre l'Autriche et la France. Par un officier autrichien. Avec cartes et plans. Tome I, première partie [seule parue].

      Vienne, Antoine Strauss 1811 - in-8, [2]-XVI-[4]-LXVI-304-[4] pp., avec 6 tableaux dépliants hors-texte, manquent les deux grandes cartes, souvent reliées à part, ou placées dans un étui, demi-basane marine, dos lisse orné en long, tranches mouchetées (rel. du milieu du XIXe). Dos un peu insolé et frotté, mais bon exemplaire. Rare. - C'est tout ce qui a paru de l'ouvrage projeté, l'auteur étant mort par suicide en décembre de cette même année 1811. Karl Daniel Gottfried Wilhelm von Stutterheim (1770-1811) avait servi la Saxe et la Prusse pendant les guerres révolutionnaires, mais il se mit bientôt au service des Habsbourgs (1798) et combattit pour l'Autriche contre l'Empire français tant en 1805 qu'en 1809. Davois II, 182 (donne deux volumes, ce qui est en contradiction avec les exemplaires recensés). Au CCF, seulement trois notices (BnF, Strasbourg et Bibliothèque Thiers). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The author then compares the efforts made in other European countries to raise merino sheep (pp. 53-71). He concludes with an account of how merino sheep were first introduced into the Crimea in 1803 and offers specific proposals for ensuring that the flocks grow and thrive, thus vastly improving the quality of wool available in Russia and the Ukraine (pp. 71-88).*** NUC: MB.

        Theatrical Broadside for the New Theatre Royal, Covent-Garden, Saturday, March 6, 1811

      Very Good. Theatrical Broadside for the New Theatre Royal, Covent-Garden, Saturday, March 6, 1811, 23.5 cm x 15.5 cm, linen-backed blue paper, with a portrait of John Kemble, engraved by J. Rogers from a drawing by T. Wageman, on the verso. Below the portrait is a cutting of the cast of The Tragedy of Cato. This Present Saturday, March 16, 1811, will be acted (the 10th time) the Tragedy of Cato. To Which will be added, for the 18th time, the GRAND DRAMMATICK ROMANCE of BLUE BEARD; Or, Female Curiosity. Trimmed, slightly soiled, otherwise very good. A remarkable document of the life and career of John Kemble.John Kemble was born into a family of actors. His brother Charles Kemble also appeared in the performance advertised on this broadside. John was the second child of Roger Kemble, manager of the Warwickshire Company of Comedians. He was educated at Sedgley Park Catholic Seminary and the English college at Douai, France. John Kemble first appeared at the Royal Theatre, Drury Lane, as Hamlet in 1783, due in part to the fame of his sister Sarah Siddons.Cato, a Tragedy is a play written by Joseph Addison in 1712, a theatrical piece that emphasizes individual liberty (Marcus Porcius Cato Uticensis (95 BC April 46 BC) commonly known as Cato the Younger or Cato Minor) over tyranny (Gaius Julius Caesar July 100 15 March 44 BC). It was a popular play, one of Kemble's signature roles, and a play that George Washington had performed for the Continental Army while it was encamped at Valley Forge.

        History of the Quakers - 2 Vols-William Wilberforce's Bookplate-his personal cpy

      - The History of the Rise, Increase, and Progress of the Christian People Called Quakers, 2 volumes. Author is William Sewel in the year 1811. Fifth Edition and published by William Phillips in London. Inscriptions: Rev. Robert I. Wilberforce bookplate in Volume 1, pasted over William Wilberforce's bookplate. William Wilberforce's bookplate can still be partially seen through Robert's, but it is William's alone which is inside the front cover of Volume 2. Bibliography of William Wilberforce: Wilberforce, English philanthropist and antislavery crusader, entered Parliament in 1870. He became a strong supporter of William Pitt who persuaded Wilberforce to devote himself to the abolition of the slave trade. Wilberforce was converted to Christianity at age 25, and as a member of the Clapham sect he used his wealth and influence in Christian outreach. Wilberforce also supported Christian mission work, fought to improve the condition of the poor and prisoners, supported Catholic emancipation, and in 1804 helped to form the British and Foreign Bible Society. Bibliography of Robert Wilberforce: Robert Isaac Wilberforce (1802-1857) was an English clergyman and writer, second son of abolitionist William Wilberforce, and active in the Oxford Movement. He was educated at Oriel College, Oxford, taking a double first in 1823. IN 1826 he was chosen fellow of Oriel and was ordained, among his friends and colleagues being Newman, Pusey and Keble, tutoring at the college for a few years until religious differences with the provost caused him to resign an leave Oxford for Kent and Hull. Appointed archdeacon of the East Riding of Yorkshire in 1841, he soon became good friend with Henry Manning, with whom he corresponded on religious and theological matters, resulting in both of them turning to the Roman Catholic church, Wilberforce doing so a short three years before his death, when he was buried in Rome at the Baslica of Santa Maria. R.I. Wilberforce assisted his brother, Bishop of Oxford Samuel Wilberforce (1805-1873) to write the Life and to edit the Correspondence of his father. Includes dedication to King George and Preface with 2 volumes of textual history and what appears to be reprinted correspondence regarding Quakers. Volume 2 was rebound which is why the 2 bindings are so different. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        MS] Navigation 1811.

      Great Britain 1811. - Folio sized manuscript titled and dated to the front cover with the name W. Emmett (?). 160pp. Stitching mostly gone, page block still firmly held within its case but detached. Wear to extremities of covers with some loss to corners. Internally clean, and in fact internally very striking, the penmanship and degree of decorative detail are quite delightful. Later gift inscription to first page of MS. Page edges untrimmed. Possibly a hand written reference workbook, possibly a series of navigational studies and solutions, possibly a text book; the manuscript is extraordinarily detailed and decorative with meticulous tables, diagrams and illustrations including a detailed manuscript globe of the Earth and a full page mariner's compass rose. The text deals with, amongst a wealth of navigational subjects, log boards, Middle latitude Sailing, Navigational Trigonometry, Geographical Zones, general axioms of navigation and a particularly in depth 20 page account of a voyage taken by the Frances out of London in 1805 to Funchal in Madeira. There was indeed a ship called the Frances sailing in 1805, a privately owned small ship on loan to the Royal Navy, possibly the same HMS Frances that took part in the American Revolutionary War, which appears to have been rented (apparently a common event in times of conflict) from the Earl of Huntingdon and to have been named after his wife, Frances Hastings. The other possibility is that the account of the voyage is being used as an exemplary problem and solution and thus might be composed of elements chosen at random. A fascinating survival of a period during which British domination of the seas was without question and when knowledge of this sort was the passport to a potentially valuable career.

It is heralded as one of the earliest publications reproducing works by a modern artist, and responsible for focusing the attention of all Europe on the sculptor. 2 [img-3881-left-large_default] [img-3880-left-large_default] Life-size statue of Goddess of Hope, 1817, executed for Caroline von Humboldt. Engraving by Ferdinando Mori (platemark 305 × 200 mm) The works reproduced by the Riepenhausen brothers are a baptismal font commissioned by Charlotte Schimmelmann for the church of Brahetrolleborg, Funen, Denmark (1805-1807; plates 11-14), a relief of 'The Dance of the Muses on Helicon' modelled by Thorvaldsen in nine days as a birthday present for Jacqueline Elisabeth Schubart (1804; pl. 15), four reliefs for the façade of Christiansborg Palace, Copenhagen (1807-1810; pls. 18-21), a relief of 'Hector with Paris and Helen' (1809; pl. 23), and another of 'Cupid revives Psyche' (1810; pl. 31). Ferdinando Mori reproduced all the other works, among them the celebrated Alexander frieze for the Palazzo del Quirinale in Rome, Thorvaldsen's first commission for the Napoleonic dynasty (1812; pls. 33-54); a statue of Mars, commissioned by the Bavarian crown prince Ludwig, for which the model has been lost (1808; pl. 32); 3 the tripartite funeral monuments for August Boehmer (pls. 67-69) and J. Ph. Bethmann-Hollweg (pls.71-73), executed in 1812 and 1814 respectively; and the portrait of Elisabeth Ostermann-Tolstoi modelled in 1815, and sculpted in 1815-1819 (pl. 77). Seven of Mori's preparatory drawings for the plates of the Alexander reliefs are preserved in the Thorvaldsen Museum in Copenhagen (Inv. D175-181, associated with pls. 33-37, 40, 43, 49-50), as well as his pencil drawing of Mars (D174), and drawings for twenty-three other plates. 4 The publication evidently was instigated in 1809 by Joseph Anton Koch, who planned to draw and engrave the sculptures himself, but soon transferred the project to the Riepenhausen brothers and Ferdinando Mori. Initially, all the costs were borne by Thorvaldsen, and the work first distributed in 1811 as a suite of title and twenty-one plates. 5 In 1813 Mori assumed the publication rights, 6 and the work grew in three stages (to 32, 7 54, 8 and 67 9 plates respectively) until in 1816 it reached its optimum size of eighty engravings. 10 In each of these successive issues, the same title-plate (dated 1811) was utilised. Copies of the earliest issues are recognisable by their contents, or by paper evidence (in our copy, all the plates are struck on a paper watermarked 1817).

The first two (of seven, or eight?) distribuzioni seem to have been issued simultaneously. The first was comprised of the title and ten plates (Giasone [frontal view]; Giasone [side view]; Briseide consegnata agli eraldi di Agamennone; Ganimede; Apollo; Bacco; Venere; Psiche; Amore e Psiche); the second contained eleven plates (Il Battesimo; La Madonna; Gesù Cristo; La Gloria; Apollo che suona e le muse danzano intorno alle tre Grazie; Ebe; Frontone; Ercole ed Ebe; Esculapio ed Egia; Prometeo e Minerva; Giove e Nemesi). The prints were enclosed in a printed wrapper: Collezione delle statue e de bassirilievi inventati e scolpiti in marmo dal cavaliere Alberto Thorwaldsen scultore danese. Cf. Maria Vittoria Marini Clarelli, 'L'opera di Thorvaldsen nell'editoria romana dell' Ottocento' in Bertel Thorvaldsen: 1770-1844: scultore danese a Roma, edited by Elena di Majo (Rome 1989), pp.308-312 ('le dispense o distribuzioni furono sette'). 6.

As the work progressed, Mori submitted proof impressions of his engravings for Thorvaldsen's approval. Thirteen such impressions (before letters, most with pencil annotations) are in the Thorvaldsen Museum, Copenhagen, Graphic Works by other artists, E75l-p, E75r-y (corresponding to pls. 2, 11-12, 16, 23â€"24, 30, 40, 45, 64-65, 67, 69). 7.

Plates 33-54 document the Alexander frieze and were initially considered a 'supplement' to the work. 9. The '4a Distribuzione' was circulating in August 1813 (cf. letter of Mori to Thorvaldsen in Thorvaldsen Museum, Letter Archive, m3 1813, nr. 17; and for contents, m4 1814, nr. 24). 10.

(1) A manuscript personal promissory note (90 x 167 mm) dated Adelaide, 24 October 1840 - 'Three months after date pay to my order Thirty Pounds value received. F.W. Allen. To C.W. Stuart Esqre'. Stuart has written across it 'Accepted Payable at the Bank of South Australia'. It was subsequently stamped by the Bank of South Australia, Adelaide when it was paid on 27 January 1841. The verso is endorsed by F.W. Allen, C. Crispe and 'For the Bank of South Australia Edwd Stephens Manager'. Apart from two vertical creases and a tiny spike hole, it is in fine condition. (2) A printed Bank of South Australia cheque (80 x 180 mm, printed by Batho and Bingley, London) with manuscript insertions - 11 February 1841, from C.W. Stuart to Harry Lechahdee[?] for 3 pounds. A bank stamp on it indicates it was paid out in Adelaide on 15 February 1841. It is endorsed on the verso by Robert Champlay, an indecipherable signat

      Edward Stephens (1811-1861) was appointed cashier and accountant of the South Australian Company in 1836; he arrived in the 'Coromandel' on 17 January 1837 at Holdfast Bay. 'There he set up his office in a tent but at first business was slight. He was induced to sign a letter to Governor [Sir] John Hindmarsh asking for a public meeting to reconsider the site of Adelaide. Although in February the meeting decided in favour of Colonel William Light's choice Stephens did not hesitate to buy eight city acres [3.2 ha] when they were auctioned, and later became very friendly with Light. Stephens fell foul of Hindmarsh and was rebuked by George Fife Angas for dabbling in politics' (Australian Dictionary of Biography). In 1840 he became the Adelaide manager of the Bank of South Australia. Charles William Stuart (~1811-1891) arrived in the colony in 1836, and became Acting Police Commissioner during Alexander Tolmer's extended absences on overland gold escort duties in 1852-53. Tolmer's dismissal in November 1853 was in part due to his involvement 'in demeaning disputes with his subordinates', not least Stuart. Frederick William Allen (1813-1850) arrived on the 'Buffalo' and became a publican. Clement Crispe (~1804-1857) arrived in 1837 on the 'John Renwick' and was a butcher and farmer. Robert Champlay was married in Adelaide on 30 January 1840. (Most of the biographical details have come from the 'Biographical Index of South Australians, 1836-1885'). We have not yet traced Harry - there are some intriguing possibilities.

        The Royal Military Chronicle Or British Officers Monthly Register And Mentor, 1810-1813. In good condition for a periodical often found in poor shape.

      J. Davis, London 1811 - Six royal octavo volumes bound in contemporary tree calf with twin black leather labels to each volume. The calf is rather rubbed and worn and some joints are cracking but firm - a good set replete with plans, portraits and maps. This periodical is an important source for obituary notices, biographies, letters from various theatres of war and copies of bulletins, technical treatises etc. This set comes from the library of Sir Watkin Williams-Wynn of Wynnstay, Denbighshire with his signature on the front paste-down of Volume I and engraved armorial bookplate in all volumes. This periodical runs to ten volumes and is now difficult to find as either a complete set or a decent run. It is, sadly, cursed by the lack of an index. Extra postal rate will apply.

        Essai politique sur le royaume de la Nouvelle-Espagne

      F. Schoell, Paris 1811 - 3 volumes: 2 volumes text, 4to., (13 4/8 x 10 inches); and atlas volume, folio (22 x 16 inches). Half-titles in each volume. With the dedication leaf and 4-page dedication to Charles IV. 21 engraved maps, profiles, views, and charts on 19 sheets, four hand- colored (some intermittent pale spotting.) Modern tan calf-backed black marbled paper boards, spines gilt, by Atelier Laurenchet. Provenance: Bookplates of Jay T. Snider, Collection of Historical Americana. First edition, a very rare variant. Yale has a copy of the true first edition with an 1808 title-page and the dedication leaf to Charles IV. The present copy is dated 1811 in the text volumes, but is actually made up of the text as printed in 1808, including the suppressed dedication leaf to Charles IV of Spain. This copy, with the same format and pagination but with the suppressed dedication, shows that the 1811 edition was actually made from the sheets of the 1808 printing, with the dedication removed and the 1811 titles inserted. This edition has generally been overlooked by bibliographers (although Thomas Streeter correctly described the accompanying atlas and surmised this text might exist), the 1809-1814 Tübingen edition generally described as the first. Evidently published in the spring of 1808, the present edition is markedly different in text from that which began to appear the next year. It was suppressed, probably by Humboldt himself. He dedicated the work to Charles IV of Spain, who had allowed him to travel freely through the Spanish colonies. Almost concurrently with the book's publication, Napoleon invaded Spain and deposed Charles, installing his own brother, Joseph Bonaparte, on the Spanish throne. Already under suspicion as a Prussian spy and only allowed to remain in Paris through the intercession of his scientific friends, Humboldt's dedication to the abdicated monarch might have sealed his fate. He may also have had second thoughts about the scope of the work, as the Tübingen edition is greatly enlarged. In 1799 Alexander von Humboldt went to Spain and received from the king permission to visit and make scientific investigations in all the Spanish possessions in Europe, America, with privileges never before granted to any traveller. From 1799 to 1804, Humboldt was accompanied by the French botanist Aimé Bonpland, and together they made observations on geology, geography, zoology, botany and the political and social character of the regions. His exploration of Orinoco River was the first to furnish any positive knowledge of that river. In 1802, in exploring the volcanoes of Ecuador, he ascended heights that had not previously been attained, and on Chimborazo reached the altitude of 19,286 feet. Afterward he made a profile of Mexico from sea to sea--this was the first profile ever given of an entire country. After his return to Paris, and over a period of about two decades, Humboldt undertook to publish the results of his study in the monumental 29-volume "Voyage aux regions equinoxiales du Nouveau Continent". The present work is the third part of this series, consisting of two text volumes and an atlas of maps relating to New Spain, including much of present-day southwestern United States. This comprised the first scientific description of the American Southwest and includes a wealth of new information on California and Texas. The atlas includes plates on volcanoes, land profiles, a map of the southern part of North America, maps of Mexico and many of its parts, and most importantly, Humboldt's two-sheet "Carte Generale du Royaume de la Nouvelle Espagne." This map contained the most up-to-date geographic depiction of Texas, California and the rest of Mexico, and it became the prototype rendering for much of the region for the next several decades. Carl Wheat called the map a "truly magnificent cartographic achievement."
