        THE SEASONS

      London: Wilkie and Robinson, J. Walker, Cadell and Davies, et al., 1811. n. Hardcover. 191 x 121 mm (7 1/2 x 4 3/4"). 1 p.l., lii, 236 pp. Includes a "Life of the Author" by P. Murdoch and "An Essay on the Plan and Character of the Poem" by J. Aiken, M.D. VERY PLEASING CONTEMPORARY CRIMSON STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, ELABORATELY DECORATED IN GILT AND BLIND, covers with broad gilt fillet perimeter bordering a frame of gilt palmettes and then (closer in) fillets and palmettes in blind; raised bands with gilt dash-roll, spine compartments with symmetrically clustered arabesques, roses, open dots, stars, and foliate tools, gilt-rolled turn-ins, all edges gilt. With four engraved allegorical plates designed by T. Uwins. Inscribed on the verso to front free endpaper: "L. E. / from the library of her brother / Henry Duncombe / The gift of Lucy Duncombe / 1832," and signed on the first preliminary leaf, "H. Dumcombe E[x] dono A. Curzon." Lowndes IV, 2671 (citing editions through 1848). A little foxing to the plates, but AN EXTRAORDINARILY FINE COPY, the text clean and fresh, and the lovely binding very lustrous and virtually unworn. This is an elegantly bound copy of "The Seasons," the most influential poem in blank verse from Milton to the Romantics. Incredibly popular, it was found almost universally in English homes, whether cottages or castles. Born in Scotland, James Thomson (1700-48), who is also famous for his song "Rule Britannia," is credited with challenging the artificiality of English poetry and beginning a new era of sentiment for nature. "Seasons" was originally published as four separate poems from 1726-30, and as a first collected edition in 1730. Thomson continually revised and enlarged it, his final version appearing in 1744. The work itself, of course, is hardly rare, but the present binding is both unusually pretty and exceptionally well preserved.

Herr Hofrath Rehmann hat ihn unterm 8. Jun. durch einen Reisenden abgeschickt, der erst vor einigen Tagen hier angekommen seyn soll und mir ihn durch die dritte Hand zugestellt hat. So geht es gewöhnlich mit den Reisenden! Ich gebe alle meine Briefe, an deren baldiger Bestellung mir etwas liegt, gerade auf die Post. Hätte ich Ihren Brief zu Anfang des Junis erhalten, so würden Sie den verlangten Schädel schon vielleicht in Ihren Händen haben. Vielleicht läßt es sich doch noch damit machen. Schreiben Sie mir mit umgehender Post, ob Sie ihn noch zum Krusensternschen Atlas brauchen können, wenn Sie ihn am Ende des Septembers oder in den ersten Tagen des Oktobers erhalten können? Ich will in diesem Fall sogleich nach Berlin schreiben, und ihn von da mit der Post auf meine Kosten nach Königsberg oder Memel kommen lassen, von wo aus er Ihnen nach St. Petersburg direct geschickt werden soll. Am sichersten würde es wol seyn, wenn er in Memel an die Akademie der Wissenschaften zu St. Pt. adressirt werden könnte. Sprechen Sie darüber mit dem Herrn EtatsRath von Schubert, und geben Sie mir in dem Fall, daß mein Vorschlag ausführbar ist, genau die Adresse an, welche auf das Päckchen zu setzen ist. - Die Einlage empfehle ich Ihnen zu baldiger Beförderung. Ich weiß die Wohnung d. H. HR. Rehmann nicht; sonst hätte ich Sie nicht damit beschwert [...]"

        Allen's English Atlas, being a set of County Maps on Cards, shewing the whole of the Turnpike Roads, Great Rivers, Navigable Canals &c. adapted for the Instruction of Youth, in English Geography.

      1811 - Somers Town, London: Joseph Allen & Robert Rowe, 1811. 42 playing card maps (of 43), in original hand colour, with original box with title & rules on front, contents on back. England & Wales map lightly toned, nick in margin, other cards fine. Box worn. A rare first edition of this pack of playing card maps, each 93 x 63mm, with foliate borders containing the title of each map. According to the box label the game is played by taking tricks by playing a county adjoining the card on the deck. The England & Wales map is included as an aid, with a different coloured back. In this first edition each card has the publishers inscription 'Pub. by J. Allen, 3 Hampden Str. Sommers's Town 1811' under the title at top, and 'Also by R. Rowe, No. 19 Bedford Str. Bedford Row London' in the bottom border. In the second edition, later the same year, Rowe's inscription had been replaced by a panel of topographical information; apparently the partnership of Allen & Rowe had been dissolved. The maps next appeared in J. Thomson's 'New English Atlas' in 1823, and finally in Orlando Hodgson's 'The Pocket tourist & English atlas, being a new and complete set of county maps', 1827, by which time the maps were hardly 'new'. Surprisingly it was Hodson's edition that was the most familiar to the map world: it was not until 1985 that London map and playing card dealer Yasha Beresiner discovered this playing-card format and recognised the connection.

        LA UNION INDISOLUBLE. AVISO Á LOS INCAUTOS AMERICANOS CONTRA LA SEDUCCIONES DE NAPOLEON BONAPARTE, Y MAXÍMAS DE LOS NUEVOS FILOSOFOS.

      Havana: Don Esteban Joseph Boloña, 1811. - [6],28pp. Quarto. Quarter modern polished calf over linen-covered boards, spine gilt. Minor instances of light foxing at edges of first and last printed leaves. Lower corner of rear fly leaf torn. A very good copy. An extremely rare early 19th-century Havana imprint defending the monarchy and Spanish sovereignty on the Peninsula and in the New World against Napoleon and the negative influences of other contemporary philosophies. Issued during the Peninsular War, Figuera de Vargas' pamphlet was intended to promote the continued union of the Spanish realm in both hemispheres and to serve as a warning against the "seductive" elements of the French invasion and other pernicious influences. Due to a combination of climate and often poor paper quality, colonial-era Cuban imprints are rare. Not recorded in OCLC or Palau.

        Exploratory Travels through the Western Territories of North America ... Performed in the years 1805, 1806, 1807

      London: Longman Hurst [et al.], 1811. First British edition. . Quarto, pp. xx, 436. Two maps, one of which is folding. Pike made the first American exploration of the Southwest, under US government auspices: it is consequently the foundation of any collection on that area. Most of this region was Spanish territory at the time,which led to Pike's arrest, with his entire party, above Santa Fe; he was sent to Chihuahua for trial. After considerable delay, and the confiscation of all his notes, maps, etc., he was escorted through Texas back to Louisiana. Pike called attention to the weakness of the Spanish defenses and the importance of the Santa Fe trade. The American first edition came out in 1810 in a very confused textual state; the British edition is much clearer due to the editor, Rees, who, "undertook to brink something like cosmos out of this chaos ... by weaving as much as he could of the matter of the Appendixes into the main text, or into the footnotes thereto, thereby greatly reducing the bulk of the appendicial texts." (Coues quoted in Wagner-Camp). The folding map shows some minor foxing, common with this map; otherwise the text is quite clean and fresh. The binding is 19th century 3/4 calf over marbled boards. There is a bookplate on the inside front board, otherwise no markings. Very nice copy.

Två ngt nötta samtida ljusbruna skinnbd med upphöjda bind, guldornerad och blindpressad ryggdekor i form av snöflingor och svarta titel- och deltiteletiketter samt marmorerade snitt och guldpräglade pärmbårder. Pärmsidorna har mönsterpressade rutmönster och pärmkanterna med nötta guldpräglade dekorationer. Ryggarna ngt blekta och skrapade. Främre falsarna spruckna och förstärkta. Bakre pärmen till del II med en lång repa. Bra inlagor med några enstaka obetydliga fläckar. I del II har läsbandet lämnat några spår på s. 44-45. Med sir Henry Pottingers och Joseph Boultbees exlibris, den senares endast i del I.. Soulsby A catalogue of the works of Linnæus 192. Bring Itineraria svecana 136. Schiötz Utlendigers reiser i Norge 608a*. Marklund Övre Norrland i litteraturen 3591. Varianten med bokhandelsreklam på sista bladet i del II. Första upplagan av Linnés lappländska resa, översatt av Carl Troilius. Resan företogs 1732 men kom ut på svenska först 1888. Träsnitten är utförda av R. T. Austin efter Linnés teckningar och föreställer djurarter, hantverksföremål, landskap m.m. I ett appendix till del II återges ett extrakt ur Wahlenbergs "berättelse om mätningar och observationer" i översättning av J. Dryander. Smith presenteras på titelbladet som "president of the Linnæan society" där manuskriptet till resan fortfarande förvaras. Smith utgav efter att ha förvärvat Linnés samlingar flera olika tidigare opublicerade arbeten av denne. Gunnar Brusewitz skrev om resan i artikeln "Naturskildraren Linné": "Lapplandsresan har med rätta ställts i främsta rummet ur litterär synpunkt, därför att vi där hundraprocentigt kan lita på att det är Linnés egna ord vi läser. Han reste till största delen ensam och var sin egen sekreterare. [---] Naiv i betydelsen oerfaren, oskuldsfull var aldrig Linné, men han visste tillräckligt mycket för att våga visa häpenhet även inför de mest vardagsnära företeelser. Den moderne journalisten har mycket att lära av Linné." Henry Pottinger var Hongkongs första guvernör

        The History of New South Wales, from its First Discovery to the Present Time.; comprising an accurate and interesting Description of that Vast and Remarkable Country; and of the Persons, Manners, and Customs, of the Natives.

      Mackenzie and Dent, Newcastle 1811 - Octavo, two maps and three plates, printed on rather cheap paper which is consequently a little browned and with some offsetting; very good in polished brown morocco by Bayntun/Riviere. A very scarce book. This is the first issue: a later version gave the author's name on the title-page. Although appearing to be an early history of New South Wales, the earlier part is largely cribbed from Collins, and in fact the three engravings are all straight copies from that work. Other sections are taken from famous Australian works such as Tuckey, Mann, and other authors.The fact that the book was published in 1811 also means that the work was able to include some of the latest news and reports from the infamous "Rum Rebellion" trial of George Johnston, printed in a substantial appendix. The evidence presented at the court-martial, and included here, was the 'fullest, clearest and best substantiated account of the present state of the colony'.The four copies located by Ferguson were those in the prime Australian collections: Mitchell, Dixson, National Library of Australia, and his own collection.

        Appenzell. - Osterschrift.- Prob- oder Examensschrift des Mathias Mayer im Nageldach, (Appenzeller Vorderland - Appenzell a/Rd.).

      1811,. 41.5x51.5 cm (Blatt) / 55x 68 (Rahmen), Aquarell, Tuschfeder mit brauner Tinte auf Papier, der Text verziert mit goldgehöhten kalligraph. Initialen u. Titelzeilen in Zierschrift, reich ausgemalt mit floralen Ornamenten, urspr. gefaltet, im breiten Goldrahmen unter Glas,. Diese Schreibprobe zeigt die schönste Handschrift des Schülers Mathias Mayer "auf das osterliche Examen 1811". Die frommen Zeilen sind teilweise in deutscher Kurrentschrift und teilweise in lateinischer Schrift geschrieben und mit schönen Initialen sowie Blumenranken verziert. In der Mittelgirlande prangt die Nummer 1, welche Mathias als den besten Schüler seiner Klasse auszeichnet. An der Schlussfeier am Ostermontag trugen die Schüler meist ihre Proben in einer Prozession zur Kirche mit den besten Schülern an der Spitze. Die sogenannten Prob- oder Examensschriften, später auch Osterschriften genannt, waren v.a. im Kanton Appenzell der Gradmesser für die schulische Leistung der Schüler. Dieses wichtige Zeugnis der Volksbildung war das ganze 18. Jh. und noch bis in die 1830er Jahre der wichtigste Moment im ganzen Schuljahr für die Schüler und ihren Lehrer. Denn auf Ostern mussten die Schüler unter Anleitung des Lehrers eine möglichst schöne Probe ihres Schreibkönnens ablegen. Danach ergänzte ein vom Lehrer beauftragter Maler die kalligraphischen Initialen. Der Pfarrer, Schulvorsteher, Gemeinderäte etc. begutachteten am Freitag vor Palmsonntag die Proben im Rathaus und vergaben eine Rangnummer. Der Schüler mit der letzten Nummer sah sich dem Spott und Hohn seiner Mitschüler ausgesetzt und wurde als "die Sau" bezeichnet. Diese Schreibprobe war so wichtig, dass Eltern ihre Kinder mit Vorteil zu dem Lehrer schickten, dessen Schüler die schönsten Probschriften hervorbrachten. Zur Zeit der Privatschulen und der freien Lehrerwahl, war dies natürlich auch für die Lehrer bedeutsam und so manch einer richtete den ganzen Lehrplan auf diese Schreibübung aus. Mit Beginn der modernen Pädagogik und der Schulreformen um 1830 verschwand der Brauch allmählich.Please notify before visiting to see a book. Prices are excl. VAT/TVA (only Switzerland) & postage. T.

        Account of the Writings, Religion, and Manners, of the Hindoos:

      Serampore: At the Mission Press,, 1811. including Translations from their Principal Works. 4 volumes quarto (237 × 183 mm). Near contemporary half calf, green pimple-grained cloth, titles gilt direct to spines, low narrow bands with gilt dotted roll, enclosed between double gilt rolls, dog-tooth roll to spine and corner edges, edges sprinkled red, marbled endpapers. Perhaps a "native" binding. All errata leaves present. Somewhat rubbed, particularly at the extremities, errata leaf to volume I lacking the top corner, no loss, now repaired, foxing front and back, and typical browning throughout, but remains a very good set indeed. The first volume was first published in 1806, but no copies traced, this full edition being issued in 1811 from the Mission Press that Ward laboured so hard to establish. Extremely uncommon, just one set traced at auction, maybe 20 locations institutionally. Trained as a printer, and working in that capacity on various newspapers in the Midlands, and then in Hull at the Hull Advertiser and Exchange Gazette, Ward had suffered from severe spiritual crises - 'fierce volcano fires not to be quenched by a mere sprinkling of words' - before he was baptised at Hull in 1796. He subsequently attended "the theological academy of John Fawcett at Halifax, where he studied for a year and a half. In the autumn of 1798 a member of the committee of the newly founded Baptist Missionary Society visited and Ward offered himself as a missionary, influenced perhaps by a remark made to him in 1793 by William Carey concerning the need of a printer in the Indian mission field. He sailed from England in the Criterion in May 1799, in company with Joshua Marshman, Daniel Brunsdon, William Grant, and their families. On arriving at Calcutta the party was prevented from joining Carey by an order from the East India Company government, and was obliged to proceed to the Danish settlement of Serampore, where they were joined by Carey" (ODNB). While in India Ward was mainly concerned with the establishment and running of the press, "by means of which the Bible, translated into Bengali, Marathi, Hindi, and more than twenty other languages, was disseminated throughout India. Numerous philological works were also issued". The press burnt down just a year after the printing of the present work, "the moulds for casting fresh type, however, were recovered from the debris, and by the liberality of friends in Great Britain the loss was soon repaired". In 1819 ill-health forced Ward to return to England, where he spent his time in fund-raising for a new college to instruct "Bengalis in European literature and science". Tours of Scotland, Germany, Holland and the United States followed, and in 1821 he returned to India "bearing £3000 for the new college, which had been founded during his absence and which still survives". Ward died of cholera at Serampore in 1823 and was buried in the mission burial-ground there. Despite his onerous duties in connection with the press, and his missionary work Ward was also the author of a number of publications, of which the present is "much the most important … Although Ward did not mince his words in his condemnation of 'Hindoo idolatry', he did comment favourably on the literary and philological achievements of Hindu scholars, and in later versions modified somewhat the harshness of his strictures on Hinduism. Despite some serious inaccuracies, Ward's work remains without parallel as a detailed account by a European observer of Hindu society and religion in early nineteenth-century Bengal". An appealing set of this important and uncommon early work of South Asian anthropology.

      - Zwei Radierungen in Braun mit zusätzlicher Staffage in eigenhändiger Aquarellmalerei. Beide rechts unten monogr. "WK" (in Bleistift ergänzt zu Kobell), 1811, ca. 6,9 x 8,2 cm. Goedl-Roth 33 und 34. - Zwei Gegenstücke, die in ihrer qualitätvollen eigenhändigen Aquarellmalerei durch den Künstler bestechen. Bereits im Jahr 1963 kosteten zwei ähnliche Gegenstücke auf einer Auktion von Karl & Faber in München DM 3.220,- und werden als „Kabinettstücke allerersten Ranges von der Schönheit eines Aquarells aus der besten Zeit Kobells" beschrieben. Die zarten Radierungen in Braun bilden nur den Hintergrund: sie sind vollständig aquarelliert und mit zusätzlicher Staffage bereichert. Bei den hier vorliegenden Blättern hat Kobell zusätzlich einen Hüterbub im Hintergrund der Ziege hinzugefügt, die Bäume und Bauernhäuser leicht verändert und stärker akzentuiert sowie die Ziegen im Vordergrund in ihrer charakteristischen Färbung herausgearbeitet. Das Kolorit des Bodens ist bei den Gegenstücken durchgehend und betont so ihre Zusammengehörigkeit. Eigenhändige Arbeiten von Wilhelm von Kobell zählen heute zu den großen Seltenheiten des Marktes und sind begehrte Sammlerstücke. Offensichtlich hat der Künstler eine kleine Anzahl von Radierungen aquarelliert und nach Lust und Laune zusätzliche Figuren dazugemalt. Er verwendete dazu die in Braun gedruckten und dadurch weicher wirkenden Radierungen. Die Ergänzungen von seiner Hand sind so kongenial, dass die "normale" Radierung im Vergleich geradezu "leer" wirkt. - In blütenfrischer, tadelloser Erhaltung. In zwei alten Rahmen.

        General View of the Agriculture and Minerals of Derbyshire; With observations on the means of their improvement, drawn up for the consideration of the Board of Agriculture and internal improvement

      London: Printed by B. McMillan, 1811. First edition, 3 vols., xlvii, 532, [4, adverts], five hand-coloured maps, and sections of strata (4 of which are fold-out); xx, 28, 522, [6, adverts], 4 engraved plates (one of which is a fold-out), one large folding table of poor rates; xxvii, [1], 725, [3, adverts]pp., one engraved folding map, 2 plates, 2 folding tables, from the library of the Royal Agricultural Society of England with their bookplate, cont. half calf, rebacked with the orig. spine laid-down, labels chipped. The full title of volume one (which deals with the geology of Derbyshire) is as follows: Containing a full account of the surface, hills, valleys, rivers, rocks, caverns, strata, soils, minerals, mines, collieries, mining processes, &c. &c. Together with some account of the recent discoveries respecting the stratification of England; and a theory of faults and denudated strata, applicable to mineral surveying and mining. "One of the classics of British geology. The title does not promise much in the way of general geological interest which is perhaps why it has been largely overlooked. The main contributions to geological knowledge contained in the volume may be summarised as follows: A fundamental principle of structural geology, that of faulting with subsequent denudation, is established and worked out with great thoroughness and illustrated with coloured block-diagams, and the factors governing outcrop are clearly explained. The succession of the Carboniferous rocks in Derbyshire, particularly the middle portion, is described in detail. In describing the rocks of Charnwood Forest in Leicestershire, Farey gives a very early account, perhaps the first, of a British region now known to be largely composed of Pre-Cumbrian rocks. Probably the most important part of the whole book is his 'Map of Derbyshire and parts of the seven adjacent counties showing the principal strata and soils' (scale, 6¼ miles to the inch). It is one of the earliest of the truly geological maps of any part of Britain to be published and appears to be entirely original. It is only necessary to compare this map with the modern quarter-inch map of the Geological Survey to realise its quality."—Challinor. Challinor, 25.

        Modern Geography A Description of the Empires, Kingdoms, States, and Colonies; with the Oceans, Seas, and Isles; in all parts of the World: including the most Recent Discoveries, and Political Alterations

      London: Cadell, Davies, Longman and Rees, 1811. Two volumes, quarto, 45 maps (including one double-page and two folding), double-hemisphere double-page world map as frontispiece, very good; nineteenth-century full calf, gilt. A handsome set, and an important work with much on Australasia and Polynesia.This thorough introduction to geography is designed, as Pinkerton comments in his preface, to "shew the progress of geography, in every part of the world, to the beginning of the nineteenth century." There is an introduction with interesting details of telescopes and other astronomical instruments, which includes a good account of the vicissitudes of measuring longitude.The "Australasia" section of this book occurs in volume II, and includes Pinkerton's influential delineation of this region (designed, in part, to resist some contemporary German scholars who tended to conflate Australia with Polynesia). This section includes New Holland (pp. 464-467), Papua New Guinea (pp. 478-483), New Britain and the Solomons (pp. 484-485), New Caledonia and the New Hebrides (pp. 485-486), New Zealand (pp. 487-491), and Van Diemen's Land (pp. 491-492).Here, Pinkerton also gives an interesting account of conditions in New Holland, with a note that he believes the land mass to be a continent, and not a group of islands. His comments on early discovery include a digression on the "ancient" map in the Harleian collection of the British Museum, which purports to show a land mass similar to Australia (that is, the now famous image of 'Java la Grande' on the Harleian or Dauphin map, BM 5413). As if concerned with the amount of space he devotes to discussing New Holland, Pinkerton concludes the section with the comment: "If this account should seem rather too extensive, let it be considered that it describes a new continent, a real Terra Australis, now little known, but which in the years 1900, or 2000, may be found to present such great and singular topics, that a learned and precise pen may dedicate a large volume of geography to this one portion of the globe."The same volume also has a good overview of "Polynesia, or small Isles in the Pacific" with sections on Pelew, Guam, the Carolines, the Marquesas, and the Friendly Isles, as well as two good sections on the Sandwich Islands (pp. 499-501) and the Society Isles (pp. 504-511).There were several editions of this work, this is the third published in 1811. Pinkerton followed up the success of the work with his perhaps better known General Collection of the Best and Most Interesting Voyages and Travels in all parts of the World (17 volumes, 1808-1814).
