        Cancion elegiaca sobre los desastres que ha causado en el reyno de Nueva Galicia, señaladamente en su capital Guadalaxara la rebelion del apostrata Bachiller Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, capataz de la gavilla de insurgentes, cura que fue del pueblo de la Congregacion de los Dolores en la diocesi de Michoacan

      Guadalaxara: Impresa ... por orden superior [6] ff., 35, [1] pp., [2] ff.. 1811 The author was a priest and a professor in the Royal University of Guadalajara, Mexico. His => POEM about Father Hidalgo and his rebellion was published in March of 1811 and contains both extended footnotes with "breaking news" about the events and a last minute additional leaf (p. 35 and its blank verso) with news conveyed from Gen. Pedro Celestino Negrete about his defeat of a rebel contingent. Later in the long war for independence, Gen. Negrete would stop being a royalist and would join with Iturbide. This is first edition and attractively printed; a second was produced later in the year in Mexico City. This one has a three-page list of subscribers not noted by Garritz or CCILA; also, CCILA gives the year of printing in brackets but we see it is clearly on the title-page. Searches of NUC and WorldCat find only the copy at the British Library. Searches of CCPB and OPACs of the national libraries of Spain and Mexico fail to find any copies. CCILA locates a copy in the University of Guadalajara and an unverified copy at the Sutro. (A search of the Sutro OPAC fails to find it listed.) In contemporary marbled paper wrappers with modern stitching. Some corners bumped or dog-eared; a nice clean copy.

        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.

The principal work of the topographer Daniel Lysons (1762-1834), produced with the keen support of Horace Walpole, to whom the work is dedicated.

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!"

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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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.

Noteworthy individuals mentioned in this case are: Joseph Coerten Hornblower (1777 - 1864) American lawyer and jurist from Belleville, New Jersey, Chief Justice of the New Jersey Supreme Court; Alden Spooner (1783-1848) who "...has the distinction of being a printer in two Long Island towns, Sag Harbor and Brooklyn. It was natural that he chose to be a printer as his father Judah Paddock Spooner, was the pioneer printer of Vermont and his uncle, Timothy Green was a printer in New London, Connecticut..." Spooner also started Brooklyn's first daily newspaper (Doggett, Long Island Printing); Judge Carey Dunn Jr. Revolutionary War veteran; Commodore Jacob Nicholas Jones (1768 - 1850) officer in the United States Navy during the Quasi-War with France, the First Barbary War and the Second Barbary War, and the War of 1812..

        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.

William Jowett Titford (1784-1823), was an accountant and botanist, born in Kingston, Jamaica, the son of an army surgeon and apothecary. Raised in London and educated at Enfield, Middlesex, Titford returned to Jamaica to take over his father's coffee and pimento plantation. Titford began at this time to collect samples of seeds and plants, which he sent to the Society for the Encouragement of the Arts, Manufactures and Commerce (later the Royal Society of Arts) in London. Titford was eventually elected a corresponding member of the society for his efforts. Titford sailed to North America in 1807, collecting more botanical specimens on his travels to Boston, New Jersey, and Philadelphia. He made over fifty drawings and a description of each specimen observed, which he classified under the Linnaean system. In New York he studied botany under Dr. David Hosack at Columbia University. He returned to London in 1810-11 to begin publish his work. For "Sketches," his only publication, Titford made all of the original drawings for the handcolored plates, originally issued in six parts. Critically praised at the time of its publication "Sketches" included among its subscribers the prince regent, Louis XVIII of France, the Royal Institution, the Royal Society of Arts, and many accomplished botanists in England, Jamaica, and North America (DNB).

        Napoleon orders Breathier to evacuate the last remaining Spanish prisoners from the <i>Depôt de Paris</i>

      Letter Signed, "NP," as Emperor, 1 page, 7.5" x 9", Paris, January 29, 1811, in French, to his chief of staff, General Louis-Alexandre Berthier, concerning the evacuation of Spanish prisoners from the Depôt de Paris. Small loss at upper left not affecting text, expected folds, some minor contemporary ink bleed to signature, else very good condition. Napoleon's letter reads in most part (translated), "Give the order that no Spanish prisoners remain at the Depôt de Paris. Make General Quasnel responsible if anyone is left under your Command under pretext of illness or any other pretext; it is necessary that everyone be evacuated." Berthier, though not considered an able battlefield commander, was renowned for his organizational skills and his ability to interpret the Emperor's orders to the tiniest detail.

He was a generous supporter of the Jesuits and got two Chinese converts to take science courses in France. On return to China, they produced some 400 drawings of arts and crafts, thus moving outside the usual narrow missionary interests" (Lust). Breton de la Martinière's work is much sought after on account of the quantity and quality of its beautiful illustrations. This is one of the rare copies with all the plates hand-coloured. The 108 hand-coloured plates vibrantly record the broad range of Chinese society, especially tradesmen. Particularly interesting are the numerous depictions of itinerant salesmen and craftsmen with ingenious methods of transporting their inventories and machinery. The industrious author produced similar tours of Russia, Egypt & Syria, Spain & Portugal, and Japan. Plate IX in vol. 4 with paper defect, but overall in outstanding condition. PROVENANCE: Robert Mackenzie Waggaman, with his nineteenth-century armorial bookplate in each volume (per fesse three fleurs de-lis; in crest a demi-hippogrif rampant, couped, and maned, with motto: "Je m'élève audessus de l'adversité"). Colas 433. Cordier 65. Lipperheide 1524. Brunet I, 1225-1226. Hiler 113. Lust 1243 (English edition).

        Promenade ou itinéraire des jardins d'Ermenoville

      1811. GIRARDIN, Louis Stanislas Cecile Xavier, Comte de. Promenade ou Itinéraire des Jardins d'Ermenonville. [4], 63, [1] pp. Illustrated with 25 aquatint plates (numbered 0-24) by and after Mérigot fils, 2 engraved plates of music. 8vo., 224 x 147 mm, bound in original publisher's pink speckled paper over boards. Paris: Mérigot, Brunot-Labbe, Le Normant, Richard, 1811. |~||~||~||~||~| Second Edition of the essential work on the French jardin anglais. It describes one of the earliest and finest examples of the English garden in France. The garden at Ermenonville was planned by Count Louis-René Girardin, friend and final patron to Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Girardin's master plan, drawn in part from Rousseau's novels and idealistic philosophy, forms the central inspiration of the garden's aesthetic design. Rousseau's tomb, in fact, is prominently situated on the man-made island in the lake at Ermenonville. Louis-René Girardin was probably assisted in the design by the painter Hubert Robert. Created with care and craft, the garden came to resemble a natural environment, almost a wilderness, appearing untouched by any human intervention. The text of this work is by Louis-René's son; the aquatint plates are by Mérigot fils. These aquatint plates reveal Girardin's love of diverse vistas that capture the painterly effects achieved by great landscape painters such as Claude, Rosa, Ruysdael, and Van Goyen. Enhancing the elegiac mood of these views were the altars and monuments, among these the tomb of Rousseau on the L'Isle des Peupliers designed by Hubert Robert (plates 9 &10). The Rustic Temple, Monuments of Old Loves, and other sites reproduced by Mérigot refer to scenic details in Rousseau's La Nouvelle Héloïse. Fine copy. Hunt 695. Cohen-De Ricci 439. Sander 806.
