        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.

        Gehörnte Landziege. Gehörnter Landziegenbock.

      - 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.

        Message from the President of the U. States, transmitting a report of the Secretary of the Treasury, on the Execution of the Act Providing for the Survey of the Coast of the U. States. February 4th, 1811

      Printed by R.C. Weightman, by order of the Senate United States, Washington City 1811 - Shaw & Shoemaker 24220. Rink 2406. The report consists of a covering letter from the Secretary, explaining that the original planning, begun in 1807, under the presidency of Thomas Jefferson, was suspended due to foreign relations concerns, but that F. R. Hassler, Professor of Mathematics, was still ready to begin; Gallatin's letter of March 25th, 1807, explaining the survey and asking for advice; detailed responses to that letter from the seven addressees, including a rather technical response by James Madison, then a Committee member, suggesting that the triangulation method might not work, and proposing that a "stasimetric" mode be used; and further correspondence with the chief of the group, Robert Patterson, which included a list of instruments that were required, provided by F. R. Hassler. Hassler finally sailed for Europe in late August of 1811 to purchase the needed instruments but the ensuing War of 1812 left him stranded for the next three years. Though he did finally begin work in 1816, Congress transferred the project to the military which did little, and the project was not fully resumed until 1833 when Hassler was reappointed superintentant of the survey. The two plates, which contain three figures, relate to Patterson's explication of the methods to be used. Rink lists only three copies: Brown, LOC, AAS; OCLC shows two more UVA, Lib. Co. Phila. Removed from a larger volume else a very good copy with offsetting on a few leaves, shallow marginal chip to top edge of 2nd plate. [Attributes: First Edition]

        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).

        Two early items associated with the Bank of South Australia are offered together. (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.

      - 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').

        La Chine en miniature ou choix de costumes, arts et métiers de cet Empire. Four volumes. + Coup - d'oeil sur la Chine, ou nouveau choix de costumes. Two volumes. Paris, Nepveu, 1811 - 12.

      16mo. Pp. xxxvi, 144; (iv), 172; 188, (iv), 220 + pp. (iv), xxxiv, 236; (iv), 234. With 108 engraved plates, of which 101 are beautifully handcoloured and 8 folding. Contemporary red quarter calf on red paper covered boards, ruled in gilt, spines decorated and lettered in gilt. Partly with some minor browning but overall a very fine set. The last two volumes "Coup - d'oeil" were also published in the same year with the title "La Chine en miniature" (vols. 5 - 6). A complete set (in six volumes) of Breton's charming work devoted to China and it's people, crafts and arts. The illustrations originates from two young Chinese students who spent a few years studying in France supported by the French statesman Henri Leonard Bertin. He was then responsible for the East India company (1762 - 80) and supported the French Jesuits in China. Upon return to China the students produced more than 400 drawings of arts and crafts, of which many have been used in this work. The lovely plates mainly depict various artisans and vendors with their tools and products but several are devoted to costumes of emperors, ladies, lamas and soldiers. Some of the plates first appeared in Mason's "The costume of China" and "The Punishments of China" (1800 - 01). Cordier BS 64. Lipperheide 1524. Löwendahl 757.

      London. [1811]. - Broadside, 25 x 19 inches. Old fold lines. Faint offsetting, else fine. Large broadside printing of an affidavit given by five British sailors, attesting to their being impressed into service on American merchant ships while in New York City. The deposition states that John Harrington, James Young, Joseph Armstrong, John Quinny, and George Adamson are British sailors who shipped on the Brig Rachel from Sunderland on a voyage to New York. Once arrived in New York, they were shanghaied by a gentleman named David Reed, who got them outrageously drunk and then forced them aboard a ship in the North River, whereupon Reed was paid $40 apiece for each man. The statement is sworn before Charles Christian, Special Justice of the Peace for New York City, Dec. 18, 1810. Only three copies recorded in OCLC, at New-York Historical Society, Harvard University, and the Detroit Public Library. Scarce and interesting, highlighting events which doubtless added fuel to the tensions that became the War of 1812.

        Eingang in die große Höhle bey Lautern / 4 Stund von Schwäb. Gmünd.

      - Kreidelithographie 1811, auf cremefarbenem Velin. 21:18 cm. Literatur: Hirschfeld, Ergänzungen 1; Winkler 311.1. Von den insgesamt drei lithographischen Inkunabeln Heideloffs zeigen zwei – aus dem Jahre 1811 – die romantische Höhle bei Lautern im Königreich Württemberg, kennzeichnend für die Anwendung der lithographischen Technik in ihrer Frühzeit auch zur Dokumentation von Naturdenkmalen. In diesen spiegelt sich das einsetzende Interesse im Geiste der Romantik, Sonderlichkeiten der Natur, wie Gesteinsformationen und Ähnliches festzuhalten. Sein waches Auge in der Beobachtung und Erfassung von Überkommenem führte Heideloff zum Studium der romanischen und gotischen Architektur Deutschlands, die in eine Anstellung des Architekten als Konservator der städtischen Kunstdenkmäler Nürnbergs im Jahre 1822 führte. Seine Wiederherstellungen „im alten Stil" der Nürnberger Kirchen St. Sebald, St. Lorenz und der Frauenkirche, um nur einige zu nennen, und des Dürerhauses, sowie des Bamberger Domes (zusammen mit Gärtner) fanden zwar später teilweise scharfe Kritik, da über Jahrhunderte gewachsene Ensembles auf den mittelalterlichen Zustand hin „bereinigt" wurden, doch würdigt man sie heute in ihrem historischen Kontext der frühen Baudenkmalpflege. Auch als eigenständiger Architekt trat Heideloff hervor u.a. mit dem Schloß Lichtenstein des Herzogs von Urach, das durch Wilhelm Hauff in die deutsche Literatur einging.

Crudely rebacked and re-cornered in half brown morocco, crimson and black morocco labels, marbled boards and endpapers. Bookplate to front pastedown, some occasional light foxing, browning to fore-edge, boards and edges a little worn, a very good copy.

The principal work of the topographer Daniel Lysons (1762-1834), produced with the keen support of Horace Walpole, to whom the work is dedicated. Many areas which were "environs" to Lysons are now firmly inside London, including Battersea, Bermondsey, Camberwell, Lambeth, Chelsea, Finchley, Fulham, Hackney, Islington, Kensington, and Tottenham. As Walpole himself predicted in 1791, "There will soon be one street from London to Brentford; ay, and from London to every village ten miles around!"

        1811 Collection of Manuscript and Printed Documents Regarding the Petition of Alexander Peacock, an Insolvent Debtor of Oyster Bay Long Island New York with Documents Signed By Judge Cary Dunn Jr., Alden Spooner & Others

      Oyster Bay Long Island New York: Not Published, 1811. Collection includes 17 separate documents, all of which reference this court case regarding the petitioner Alexander Peacock, an insolvent debtor from Oyster Bay, Queens County, Long Island NY; appearing before Cary F. Dunn, Jr. first judge of the court of common pleas County of Queens; Peacock was "...conforming himself to the directions of the act entitled 'An act for the benefit of insolvent debtors and their creditors'..."; the first document, partially printed, titled (No. 1 Petition) has been notarized with the blindstamp at top of E. Ely Notary and is addressed to Judge Dunn; the next is the proof of residence, deposed and signed by John B. Hicks & the judge; the following is an Account of Creditors, a long list of over 30 names and including individuals living in New York, Philadelphia and New Jersey, the debts amounting to $ 5468.00; next is an accounting of the 6 suits and judgements brought against Mr. Peacock, including that of Joseph C. Hornblower of Newark, NJ, James King and Archibald McKellar of the City of New York and others; the next document is an inventory of the estate of Peacock, with a list of 15 people who have notes outstanding owed to him, including Benjamin Smith, Gilbert Robertson & Co., David R. Floyd Jones, Luther Hildreth, a Mr. Sibbsone of England, Capt. Jones of the United States Vessel Revenge and Louis Jones (a Colored man) totalling $ 5647.62 - the back of this sheet gives a list of the "Body Clothing, Beds & Bedding..." Peacock being fairly well-dressed and provided for; other documents here include the Oath certifying the amounts owed; a certification of copies of the documents by James Fairlie, Clerk of the Supreme Court; a legal agreement & acknowledgment from Peacock to meet with creditors at the house of Joseph Roe innkeeper in the Village of Jamaica; also is the "Order for Advertisement" document signed by Judge Dunn, requesting that the notice of the meeting be published "...in the paper printed by the printer to the State and in the Columbian, and Long island Star for six weeks successively, requiring his creditors to appear before me at the House of Joseph Roe..."; attached here are the printed papers completed in manuscript attesting to the publication of the notice to publicize by the judge from Charles Holt, printer of the Columbian and counter-signed by James Campbell, Master in Chancery and tipped-on is a printed copy of the actual advertisement as it appeared in the newspaper; with a similar notice from Solomon Allen, printer of the Albany Register, another from Alden Spooner, printer of the Long Island Star, both of these also with their samples of notice tipped-on; with a notice signed by the judge assigning all of Peacock's properties, excepting his bedding & clothing, to his creditors; and an attesting witness of the judge's assignment signed by Edward Parker; with a certifying document, with original seals, of Peacock's main creditors receiving conveyance of his estate as assignees in satisfaction of the debts, signed by Edward Parker, John B. Hicks and Christian Truss as witnesses, signed & sealed by Wm. Wright, David Findlay and Wm. Crow, with the verso attested to by the judge; with a notice of oath-taking of Wright & Findlay to uphold the decision of the court; and a similar oath by Wm. Crow and signed by Judge Dunn; each page is signed by Alexander Peacock; originally, these were all sealed or adhered to each other at the top of the sheets, to make one continuous 'case' of materials - some of the old glue has given way and now there is separation of the pages; varying sizes, from 6 3/4" x 8" to 8 1/2" x 13 1/2" size sheets; most of the paper of very good quality, chain-laid, some with the paper makers' watermark; some edge, tips wear and chipping to edges, some darkening and old fold lines; in very good condition overall and a collection offering a glimpse of the process for relieving debt, in this case substantial, especially useful for outlining the entire process under the law in the early days of the American Republic; interesting legal history documentation.

A complete set (in six volumes) of Breton's charming work devoted to China and it's people, crafts and arts. The illustrations originates from two young Chinese students who spent a few years studying in France supported by the French statesman Henri Leonard Bertin.

Upon return to China the students produced more than 400 drawings of arts and crafts, of which many have been used in this work. The lovely plates mainly depict various artisans and vendors with their tools and products but several are devoted to costumes of emperors, ladies, lamas and soldiers. Some of the plates first appeared in Mason's "The costume of China" and "The Punishments of China" (1800-01). Cordier BS 64. Lipperheide 1524. Löwendahl 757. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Sense and Sensibility: A Novel

      London: printed for the author, by C. Roworth, and published by T. Egerton,, 1811. In three volumes. By a Lady. 3 volumes, duodecimo (173 ×103 mm). Skilfully rebound to style in half calf using contemporary marbled boards, smooth spines lettered in gilt, blind tools in compartments. Housed in a dark brown leather entry slipcase by the Chelsea Bindery. Half-titles discarded by the binder, as often. A little sporadic browning or spotting, some creases, neat paper repair and a few letters supplied in manuscript towards lower outer corner of sig. O8, vol. I, a very good copy. First edition of the author's first published novel, one of 750 copies. Begun in the mid-1790s, Sense and Sensibility, like Pride and Prejudice, went through two versions before publication, but the fact that it was published first was more or less accidental. First Impressions (the first version of Pride and Prejudice) had been summarily rejected, and Susan (the first version of Northanger Abbey and probably the first to be started of the three) had been sold to the publishers Richard Crosby & Son, but they failed to publish it. Austen paid Egerton to have Sense and Sensibility published and paid a commission on sales. The cost of publication was more than a third of Austen's annual household income of £460, but she made a profit of £140 on the first edition, which sold out by July 1813.
