        Hymns for Little Children

      New York: Printed and sold by S. Wood at the Juvenile Book-store. No. 357 Pearl-street. 1812. First. First edition. 16mo. String-tied buff printed wrappers. 24pp (2pp) ads for Juvenile books sold by Wood. Several wood cuts, inside front wrap with four printed alphabets. Wrappers darkened and rubbed, and with a light splash mark, but still a sound and tight, very good copy. This pamphlet had many subsequent printings, this is the first edition, and additionally, while Wood was in business for several decades, this appears to be the first book he issued specifically from the "Juvenile Book-store" which seems to have been operated between 1812-1822. Very scarce, OCLC lists but three copies. .

        Childe Harold's Pilgrimage

      London: John Murray;/Edinburgh: William Blackwood;/Dublin: John Cumming, , 1812. A Romaunt. Octavo (210 x 125). Contemporary polished full calf, spine gilt-tooled in compartments with an olive morocco title label, gilt-ruled border to sides, board edges and turn-ins gilt-rolled, marbled endpapers and edges. Folding plate at rear with facsimile of Romaic text. Very slight rubbing to extremities, very minor splitting to head of both joints, single holes to tail of both joints, but the whole holding fine, a few trivial marks and scratches to covers, occasional mild spotting internally but a really handsome copy in excellent condition. Second edition (the same year as the first), enlarged with six new poems, of Byron's first major work, the book that launched the "Byronic hero", presenting Cantos 1 and 2 of Byron's autobiographical poetic romance covering his travels in Portugal, Spain, Albania and Greece, at the publication of which he "awoke, and found myself famous!". This copy bears an interesting contemporary provenance, with the bookplate (and gilt tooled crest matching on the spine) of Lieutenant-General Sir Henry Edward Bunbury, 7th Baronet & KCB (1778-1860), who had active service in the Napoleonic wars 1795-1809, and served as Under-Secretary of State of War and the Colonies 1809-16. In 1815 he was responsible for informing Napoleon of his deportation sentence to St Helena after the Battle of Waterloo. He published his history of the Napoleonic wars, Narratives of Some Passages in the Great War with France, in 1854. A not inappropriate association, given Byron's passionate interest in the rise and fall of Napoleon, most memorably and extensively worked out in the opening stanzas of Childe Harold, Canto 3. The copy also has the early 20th-century armorial bookplate of noted collector Oliver Nowell Chadwyck-Healey.

      Berlin, Wilhelm Hayn, 1811-1812. - Seltene erste Ausgabe. Cölln greift mit den 'Materialien' in die erbitterten Auseinandersetzungen zwischen dem Ministerium Hardenberg, das für Preußen eine liberale Wirtschafts- und Gesellschaftsordnung anstrebte, und dem konservativen Adel ein. Einer der Führer des Adels war von der Marwitz, der wegen Widerstands gegen Hardenbergs Reformen während der Landes-Deputierten-Konferenz mehrere Wochen inhaftiert war. Vgl. dazu ausführlich: 'Der Kampf gegen Hardenberg' in Baxa, Adam Müller, S. 141 ff. Die Beiträge stammen wohl ausschließlich aus Cöllns Feder. Im ersten Heft skizziert er, an die "Landes-Deputirten in Berlin" gerichtet, die Politik des Ministeriums. Im 2. Heft setzt Cölln dies fort und schließt mit dem Aufsatz 'Kritik des 4ten Buchs in Adam Smiths System vom Zweck des Regierens'. Das dritte Heft von 1812 bringt die Beiträge: 'Adam Müllers neue Landwirtschaft . - Schreiben an den Herrn Professor Fichte. - Beitrag zur Karakteristik Burkes. - Der Bauer. Geschrieben im Jahr 1809. – Titel mit altem Wappenstempel, teils leicht fleckig. Kaum in deutschen Bibliotheken und nur in der Berliner Staatsbibliothek komplett.

Wohl Vorzeichnung für eine Graphik. Machte eine dreijährige Ausbildung in der Werkstatt des Malers Heinr. Füßli (1755-1829). Bereits 1803 war er mit einer Kreidezeichnung auf einer Züricher Kunstausstellung vertreten und seitdem hat er mehr als fünfzig Jahre lang Veranstaltungen dieser Art mit seinen Aquarellen und Zeichnungen beschickt, die immer ihre Liebhaber fanden. Reisen führten ihn 1839 nach Deutschland bis nach Berlin, wo der preussische König, den er bereits 1820 als Thronfolger in Zürich kennengelernt hatte, mehrere Aquarelle von ihm auswählte. 1842 reiste er über Hamburg nach St. Petersburg, wo er durch einen Zufall die Zarenfamilie kennenlernte, was ihm verschiedene Aufträge einbrachte. Die letzte größere Reise führte ihn 1852 nach Wien. Nach Meyers Aquarellen ist sehr viel von anderen Künstlern in Aquatinta gestochen worden.

        Sketches of the Country, Character, and Costume, in Portugal and Spain, made during the campaign, and on the route of the British Army in 1808 and 1809 ? [bound with:] Chronological and Historical Retrospect of the Events of the War in the Peninsula

      London: Printed for John Booth, Duke Street, Portland Square by B.R. Howlett, 49, Brewer Street, Golden Square, 1812. 53 hand-colored aquatints (40 views and 13 costumes, without an unlisted plate "Toro from the River Douro") by J. Clark after Bradford. Titles and text in French and English. Text watermarked 1809-10, plates watermarked 1815-16. 1 vols. Folio. Contemporary marbled boards, rebacked in half calf. Bookplate of Charles N. Bancker and signature of J.R. Latimer, Canton, 1832 on bookplate. Sometime before 1816, John Richardson Latimer went to Philadelphia to receive training in a counting house, probably that of his uncle, George. George arranged for John and his son, James, to enter the China trade. John made his first supercargo voyage to Canton in 1815.  From that time until 1838 John made regular voyages between China and his home in Delaware, spending most of his time abroad. Profits from his years in China allowed him to retire at the age of forty. In 1838, he and his wife, Elizabeth Caldwell Keppele, moved to an estate known as "Latimeria."  (Winterthur Museum has a small pantry from Latimeria installed adjacent to the Port Royal Parlor.)  During his retirement years, John was elected to the Delaware constitutional convention, served as president of the Pennsylvania Society of the Cincinnati, and was a member of the executive committee for the Soldiers National Cemetery at Gettysburg.  He died at his home in 1865.

        Landschaft mit schroffer Felswand und einem Flüßchen mit Stromschnelle.

      . Feder in Braun und Grau, grau laviert, mit brauner Federlinie umrandet, auf Velin, verso signiert und datiert "Franz Kobell f 1812". 21:27,2 cm. Papier insgesamt vergilbt und etwas fleckig, verso an den Rändern Reste einer alten Montierung.. Nach einer Ausbildung zum Kaufmann in Mainz kehrte Franz Kobell 1762 in seine Geburtsstadt Mannheim zurück, wo er von seinem Bruder Ferdinand (1740-1799) auch künstlerisch unterstützt wurde. 1771-1778 bildete er sich zusätzlich an der Mannheimer Zeichnungsakademie aus. 1778 erhielt er von Kurfürst Karl Theodor von der Pfalz eine Pension, die ihm eine Reise nach Italien ermöglichte, wo er sich hauptsächlich in Rom aufhielt. Hier war er insbesondere dem Maler F. Müller (1749-1825), dem Dichter W. Heise und dem Bildhauer A. Trippel (1744-1793) freundschaftlich verbunden. Die Beschäftigung mit der Malerei N. Poussins (1594-1665) und Cl. Lorrains (1600-1682) hatte großen Einfluß auf sein späteres Werk; er wandte sich ganz und gar der Landschaftskunst zu. Bereits 1780 wurde er zum Hofmaler am 1778 nach München verlegten Mannheimer Hof ernannt. 1784 kehrte er aus Italien nah München zurück. Ab 1793 lebte er in Wohngemeinschaft mit seinem Bruder Ferdinand und seinem Neffen Wilhelm von Kobell (1766-1853) in München. Der zeichnerische Nachlaß des Künstlers wird auf mehr als 10.000 Blatt geschätzt.

        [Apples] Pomme d'Api; Carpendu de Blanch; Carpendu de Rouge; Nonsuch Apple Royal; Nonsuch Summer; Margill

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1812. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In excellent condition. Image size: 16 1/4 x 12 1/4 inches. A fine image from Brookshaw's masterpiece: 'Pomona Britannica; or, A Collection of the Most Esteemed Fruits'. George Brookshaw's 'Pomona Britannica' is the finest work on fruit and flowers ever produced. Its breathtaking images display a level of technical virtuosity and beauty that distinguish this magnificent work as a true work of art.As a retired cabinetmaker, Brookshaw produced his seminal botanical study late in his career, at first publishing it in parts and then as a complete edition in 1812. The fact that this outstanding work took ten years to complete is evident in the quality of its images and the care with which Brookshaw executed each individual picture. 'Pomona Britannica' was produced as a visual record of the best available varieties of fruit in an attempt to encourage gardeners to experiment with growing fruit, and illustrates examples found in the Royal gardens at Hampton Court, Kensington Gardens, and the private gardens of the Prince of Wales in Blackheath.'Pomona Britannica' differs from other botanical works in its dark aquatinted backgrounds and its stylized compositions. By using aquatint to create a contrasting background, Brookshaw manages to produce a truly dramatic effect. His use of stylized composition distinguishes his pictures from the dry scientific illustrations found in other botanical studies and creates an exceptionally beautiful visual experience. 'Pomona Britannica' is not only a didactic study, it is a masterpiece of illustration in which every picture is a testament to the artist's talent and ingenuity. Cf. Dunthorne 50; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p. 81; cf. Nissen BBI 244; cf. Sandra Raphael An Oak Spring Pomona 40a.

"In the whole literature of comparative anatomy and palaeontology there is scarcely any work that can rank with this great masterpiece of Cuvier.""We follow him in his attempts to identify the remains of the fossil mammalian by comparison with existing mammalian species, and we realize with him the necessity of a thorough examination of the bony skeleton of existing mammals before such a comparison can be effected" (Zittel).From the library of the 19th-century Uruguayan homeopath Dr. Juan Christiano d'Korth who set up a practice at Montevideo in 1847. With his name on the spines and library stamps on the title-pages. In very good condition, fly-leafs browned and corners of the bindings slightly bumped.

        The New England Primer; Or, An Easy and Pleasant Guide to the Art of Reading to Which is Added the Catechism

      Massachusetts: Printed for the Purchaser, 1812. IN GOOD ANTIQUARIAN CONDITION, completely unsophisticated. 32 mo. Collation: A-D4 = 32 ff. [64 pp.], COMPLETE with frontispiece bearing woodcuts on recto and verso and numerous woodcuts throughout (worn, textblock evenly browned). IN THE ORIGINAL HOME-MADE BINDING: thin wooden boards covered with linen cloth, crudely stitched (somewhat worn) An extraordinary "home-made" American binding: specimens such as this were from conception doomed to perish, and indeed almost every one of them has. Howes describes the significance of this text: "A combined speller, reader and religious catechism, this was the first school book printed in the colonies" (New Howes N68). See also Monica Kiefer's essay, "Mental Pabulum of Godly Children" in which the tiny text is described as "just big enough to fit in a child's pocket, was immensely popular in all the Colonies and went through numerous editions even into the Nineteenth Century the crude woodcuts and the cruder rhymes illustrating the alphabet must have been a welcome diversion to children forced otherwise to study reprints of drowsy sermons of interminable length" (Targ, Bibliophile in the Nursery, p. 326).

        Moeurs des Ottomans. 6 vols

      1812. [TURKEY]. CASTELLAN, Antoine-Laurent. Moeurs, usages, costumes des Ottomans, et abrégé de leur histoire. Six volumes. Illustrated with 72 hand-coloured stipple engravings. 18mo., 129 x 78 mm, bound in publisher's pink boards. Paris: Nepveu (Impr. Le Normant), 1812. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, a beautiful copy in the original boards, of this celebrated work on Turkish costume and culture, illustrated with hand-coloured stipple-engraved plates of high quality; these include views of towns, monuments, musical instruments and much more. Lord Byron, in a letter to Thomas Moore (August 28, 1813), wrote: "If you want any more books, there is Castellan's Moeurs des Ottomans, the best compendium of the kind I ever met with, in six small tomes." Castellan (1772-1838) was a noted painter, engraver and architect who, after the Revolution, embarked on a lengthy tour through the Ottoman Empire; his keen eye and skilled hand made him well-equipped to produce a detailed illustrated record of the sights. Hoefer (IX, col. 92) gives a long description of Castellans' life and works, with special emphasis on the Moeurs, usages, costumes des Ottomans. It is interesting to observe that Cox, the standard authority on the literature of travel, failed to include the present work in his massive three-volume bibliography of that subject; Hoefer quotes Byron as saying: "Never go to Turkey without having Castellan in your pocket." An exceptional copy in the rare original boards, and with the plates exquisitely coloured. Colas 545. Lipperheide 1427. Blackmer 300.
