      A Treatise on the Culture and Management of Fruit Trees bound with a 19th Century manuscript diary and notes on fruit trees. August 1812 to September 1849. FORSYTH, William. A Treatise on the Culture and Management of Fruit Trees in which a new method of pruning and training is fully described : to which is added, a new and improved edition of "Observations on the diseases, defects, and injuries, in all kind of fruit and forest trees" : with an account of a particular method of cure, published by order of government . By William Forsyth, F.A.S. and F.S.A. gardener to His Majesty at Kensington and St. James's, member of the Oeconomical Society at St. Petersburg, &c. &c. The Fourth edition, London, printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, Paternoster Row; and T.Cadell and W.Davies, Strand, 1806. Bound in full calf, rebacked, spine in six compartments with blind stamping, original label reused. New corners, inner hinges reinforced, new front and rear free endpapers.Pp [xxviii],523. 13 plates, 11 of them folding , some foxing and offsetting, but a Very Good plus copy.[Bound in with] pp 54 manuscript notes on fruit growing dated from August 1812 to September 1849. This is a very good example of the fourth edition Forsyth's classic work. It has had nearly 200 blank pages bound in at the rear of which over 54 have been used to keep notes, largely on the growing of Fruit Trees. The notes begin with an entry for August 1812 with the last being on September 1849. The notes are anonymous but we have found an embossing stamp to the last few leaves of the remaining blanks reading "W.Robinson/ Liverpool". We have found several references to Robinson family members in Liverpool in connection with fruit growing; "....but very admirable fruit, a little injured by packing was also sent by Mr Robinson, gr.[gardener?] to A,Sinclair Esq of Liverpool...." [Gardeners Chronicle July 20 1844].Another similar entry relating to awards for fruit growing gives Mr Sinclair living at Hillside House. Further research led to; HILLSIDE HOUSE ESTATE - Wavertree The Capital Mansion called HILLSIDE HOUSE with stable & coach-house, greenhouses, gardens, orchards, pleasure grounds, lodge and land adjoining in a ring fence, situate in Wavertree on the north east side of Allerton Road, containing 10 acres of land statute measure now in the occupation of Archibald Sinclair Esq.[Liverpool Mercury 14 July 1854]. The Mansion was built a few years ago by the owner in a most substantial manner with the superintendance of the late Mr Samuel Rowland. It is pleasantly situated on an imminence, and views of Mossley Vale......" Archibald Sinclair was a Bottle, plate, and Crown Glass Merchant who seems to have died in 1859. We have also uncovered yet further links to a William Robinson connected to fruit growing, with a Company founded by a William Robinson in 1860 with several subsequent generations of William Robinsons running the business, and which still survives today near Preston. The manuscript notes mention meetings with "Mr Farrer of Kirkdale" [ms. p7], "procuring an Orange Apricot from the Nursery of Messrs.Whalley"[ms. p 21], "Vines in the Hothouse at Euston....from the Nursery of Messrs. Chandlers ...at Vauxhall London in pots "[ms. p 63], and he transcribes many entries in the Transactions of the Horticultural Society Liverpool Mercury 14 July 1854 by Mr A Briggs, Joseph Banks, J.A.Knight.etc. There are recipes for "Destroying Worms", "Destroying Slugs"," To Destroy Caterpillars" and " To Destroy the American Bug in Apple Trees". The author describes grafting Vines [ms. p 57], and writes dated entries describing interventions with fruit trees etc. Whilst authorship is as yet uncertain, this is an interesting manuscript, showing the concerns of an estate gardener in the early part of the C19th.

        A SERIOUS INQUIRY INTO THE NATURE AND EFFECTS OF THE STAGE

      New York: By Whiting & Watson, 1812. First American Edition y. A fiery Presbyterian preacher at odds with the moderate party of his denomination, Witherspoon (1723-94) wrote this denunciation of players and playgoers in shocked response to the 1756 Edinburgh production of the historical tragedy "Douglas," written by a fellow minister, John Home. (Witherspoon and Home had previously shared an adventure, having led loyalist troops against a Scottish insurrection in 1745, having been imprisoned together in Doune Castle, and having effected a daring escape on bed sheets.) The stage drama and Witherspoon's response to it caused such an uproar that one minister was prosecuted by the Kirk merely for having attended, while Home himself was forced to resign his presbytery. All ended well, however, for Home went on to produce "Douglas" successfully in London and to become tutor to the Prince of Wales. Witherspoon also went on to higher honors: in 1768 he left Scotland to become president of Princeton College in what was then the colony of New Jersey. A rebel at heart, Witherspoon became one of the intellectual leaders of the American Revolution, signed the Declaration of Independence, and served the new government in several capacities before returning to Princeton, where he lectured on eloquence, history, philosophy, and divinity. The immediate motivation for the reprinting of Witherspoon's text in America more than half a century after its first appearance was the tragic fire in 1811 at a theatre in Richmond, Virginia, a blaze that took 60 lives, including that of the acting state governor, George W. Smith. A group of 11 New York ministers thought to respond with a stern denunciation of the immorality of the theater and a caution to all Christians to keep away from this playground of the devil. Their animadversions, along with a sermon on the topic by one of their number, Samuel Miller, comprise the preface to our first American edition.. 171 x 108 mm. (6 3/4 x 4 1/4"). 2 p.l., [5]-199, [1] pp. First American Edition. EXTREMELY ATTRACTIVE CONTEMPORARY FLAMED SHEEP, flat spine with simple gilt rules and black morocco label. Front pastedown with modern book label of Amos Tuck French. Minor offsetting throughout the text, one gathering rather foxed and browned, isolated stains of no great consequence; internally with some problems caused by inferior paper stock, but most of the text still surprisingly fresh, and THE INEXPENSIVE ORIGINAL BINDING IN SUPERB CONDITION, UNWORN AND VERY BRIGHT.

        Alabaster relief portrait - Relief-Portrait in Alabaster, geschaffen von Joseph Anton Maria Christen. Alabastermedaillon mit Profilbüste Soemmerrings, auf gerundeter Schieferplatte.

      Im Stein signiert und datiert "Christen 1812", unter der Darstellung im Schiefer bezeichnet "Sam.Th. von Soemmerring." Größe der Darstellung ca. 72x50 mm, Druchmesser der Schieferpaltte ca. 120 mm. Auf der Rückseite geritzte Portraitskizze. Samuel Thomas Ritter von Soemmerring (1755-1830), Mediziner und Naturforscher, einer der bedeutendsten Anatomen seiner Zeit, entdeckte den "gelben Fleck" in der Netzhaut des Auges 1809 entwickelte er einen elektrochemischen Telegraphen.Joseph Anton Maria Christen (1769-1838), Schweizer Bildhauer, schuf 1805 in Mailand eine kolossale Hermenbüste Napoleons I. aus Anlass von dessen Krönung zum König von Italien, später im Auftrag König Ludwigs I. von Bayern mehrere Büsten für die Walhalla berühmt wurde er auch durch auch durch seine - vorzugsweise wie hier auf Schiefer gelegten - Alabasterreliefs mit den Profilbüsten von Fürsten (u.a. Großherzog Ludwig von Baden u. s. Famile) und berühmten Zeitgenossen (wie Pestalozzi).Christen schuf das Portraitrelief Soemmerrings 1812 während seines Aufenthaltes in München, als er die vom damaligen Kronprinzen Ludwig in Auftrag gegebenen Büsten Pfeffels und Pestalozzis persönlich ablieferte* Soemmerring wirkte seit 1805 als Professor an der Bayerischen Akademie der Wissenschaften.Angesichts der wenigen zeitgenössischen Bildnisse Soemmerrings kommt diesem Portrait nicht nur durch die künstlerische Qualität der Ausführung, sondern auch durch seine Bedeutung für die Soemmerring-Ikonographie besonderer Wert zu.Provenienz: Famile Soemmerring(-Haeberlin).* Siehe Biographisches Lexikon des Aargaus 1803-1957.

        Report from the Select Committee on Transportation.

      London: Ordered by The House of Commons to be printed, 10 July 1812 - Folio (320 x 197 mm). Recent blue cloth, title gilt to the spine. Ex-Birmingham Law Society library, their ink stamp to title and a few other leaves, light browning, marginal worm damage to pp.1-16, tracks now professionally filled. First edition of this uncommon and important paper, providing the only published documentation relating to Macquarie's earliest years. After Bligh was deposed in the Rum Rebellion of 1808, questions were asked about the real value of transportation to New South Wales, and in 1811 a Parliamentary Select Committee was called to inquire into the system established in 1787 and to recommend future policy. This resulting report includes a complete transcript of the evidence given by many of the notable witnesses, these include former Governor John Hunter, 12 pages, Bligh,19 pages, and his antagonist and deposer Major George Johnston, 3 pages, "Scottish Martyr" Maurice Margarot, Matthew Flinders, First Fleet chaplain Richard Johnson, and other key colonial officials. Extracts from Macquarie's early dispatches are also included. The Report from the Select Committee on Transportation is the first major document from the Macquarie era, and as such is a paper of great significance in the early history of Australia. The committee's conclusions endorsed the then existing system of transportation and "the liberal views of the present Governor", and effectively formed the foundation for Macquarie's programme of civil and administrative improvement.

        The liverpool mercury, or commercial , literary, and political herald; a weekly paper, intended to be formed into a series of annual volumes, With a Copious Index to each. Vol. I. Commencing july, 1811, - terminating july, 1812

      Liverpool: Printed by Egerton Smith and Co., 1812. 52 issues bound together. [2], viii, 90, 93-94, 91-92, 95-242, 245-246, 243-244, 247-416pp, xi, [1]. Several leaves misbound. Later half-calf, marbled boards, contrasting morocco lettering-piece, gilt. Boards rubbed and a trifle worn. Occasional short marginal tears, spots of dust-soling, light browning. The Liverpool Mercury, 'conducted upon liberal yet steady principles', sought to convert the 'theoretic liberty' of the constitution - which had spawned newspapers that were merely 'vehicles of narrative' or 'engines of corrupt influence' - to the 'cause of moral and political truth in which all practical freedom is necessarily founded'. Admirable in its principles, the Mercury enjoyed an extensive run for a periodical of its kind, with the final issue appearing in November of 1904 when amalgamated with the Liverpool Daily Post. Each of the eight-page issues comprised two to three pages of, often attractively illustrated, advertisements, with the remainder devoted to domestic and foreign news, detailed reports on parliamentary proceedings and local trade, financial progression, the latest naval intelligence, original poetical works and, perhaps most notably, details of the individual trading-ships, many from the West Indies, that ploughed the transatlantic trade-routes. The 52 issues presented here represent the publication's first print year, of note is issue No. 46 for May 15 1812, which provides a detailed account of the assassination by Francis Bellingham of Prime Minister Spencer Percival. . First edition. Folio.

The history of this von Schrötter s extraordinary map can not be more fascinating. As finance minister of West and East Prussia, he organized an immense survey between 1798 and 1802, to perform the maps corresponding to the territory annexioned to Prussia after the third partition of Poland, that of 1795. The project was directed by Friedrich Bernhardt Engelhardt, astronomical observations were supervised from Könisgberg by the artillery lieutenant Johann Christoph von Textor (director of the famousTopographisch Militaerische Karte vom vormaligen Neu Ostpreussen oder dem jetziger Nördlichen Theil des Herzogthums Warschau, Berlin-Paris, 1807, see our ref C-0702)(1) and the surveyors calculations were reviewed by Johann Albert Eytelwein (1764-1848). The result was a handwritten map in 141 sections, in a scale somewhat greater than 1:50.000. On that basis a design on a scale three times smaller, little more than 1: 150.000, was made. Simon Schropp was responsible for recording this result, divided into 25 sections and and began its publication, in Berlin, in 1802(2). When the engrave, and impression of the map was yet running, the Napoleonic troops invaded Berlin in 1806 and hijacked the plates already engraved (14 complete and 4 in part), and the stocks of printed sheets. Although they wanted to sequester the original manuscript as well, Schropp was able to secure it  through Daniel Sotzmann, cartographer of the Berlin Academy and  evacuate it on an expedition that fledding the Napoleonic agentswith other artistic treasures. When Schropp recovered in 1809 the kidnapped plates(3), he organised the record of both the remaining and incomplete plates (remaking the title plate, and renaming 'Karte von Alt- Preussen as Karte von Ost-Preussen'), and the work was culminated before year ending. Although in 1810-1811 he issued a reduced number of complete sets (most of the territory that had been East New Prussia was no longer part of Prussia), in 1812, in order to have the best information for the Russian campaign, the French army bought all the 25 plates for an enormous sum, printing several dozen of sets reserved to be used by his generals in campaign. But, when in 1815, after the defeat of Napoleon in Russia, part of those territories returned to reintegrate in Prusia, the plates stayed in Paris and the map remained as the most detailed one of the that territory for over 50 years(4) We think, although we can not be sure, that the leaves of this set were not printed in Berlin, but they are the equally rare issues printed in 1812 by the Dépòt de la guerre in Paris for restricted use. The area corresponding until 1795 to Lithuania, was collected in the leaves, 1, 2, 3, 6, 7, 11, 12 (all of them absent from this set), 17 and 18. In addition, Könisgberg, located on sheet 6 (absent from this set), has his detailed drawing on sheet 23. And Danzig, located on sheet 9, has his detailed drawing on sheet 8 (here absent). (1) Von Textor initiated the diffusion of the project and the method for astronomical observations and triangulations at as early date as 1798. See his  Ost- und Westpreussischen Landes-Vermeffungen , Allgemeine Geographische Ephemeriden 2 (1798) Julius: 3-23. (2) Rasa Seibutyt:  Kleinlitauen auf den preußischen Karten des 18. Jahrhunderts , Annaberger Annalen 15 (2007): 89-113. (3) But he has to send 25 full sets of the map in change. For the kidnapping French version, see H.M.A. Berthaut: Les ingénieurs géographes militaires, 1624-1831: étude historique.- Paris: Impr. du service géographique, 1902, v. 2, p. 39-40, 58-59, 72 y 417.

        Influence or Prerogative? Being an Attempt to Remove Certain..

      , 1812. 1812. Scarce Essay on the English Constitution Advocating a Greater Degree of Royal Influence Twiss, Horace [1787-1849]. Influence or Prerogative? Being an Attempt to Remove Certain Popular Misconceptions Respecting the Present State of the British Constitution and Government. London: Printed for J. Hatchard, 1812. 94 pp. Octavo (8-1/4" x 5"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into recent stiff wrappers, printed paper title label to front cover. Some toning, light foxing to a few leaves, light soiling to title page and verso of final leaf. "The Lord Viscount Palmerston with the Author's Compliments" to head of title page, interior otherwise clean. $500. * Only edition. A presentation copy to Lord Palmerston. The author defends the influence of the Crown in the scheme of British Parliamentary government; without it the Prerogative would have to be revived. In his conservative view of the constitution and its core concept of checks and balances, the increasing influence of the Crown is indicative of the growing power of Commons and consequently the need to maintain equilibrium. Twiss was called to the bar in 1811 and later served as King's Counsel. As an author he is remembered for his life of Lord Eldon and for a number of literary works. This is his first publication relating to the law. OCLC locates 2 copies in North America, neither in law libraries. Not in Sweet & Maxwell.

One plate with a marginal water stain, not affecting the image, some occasional offsetting on the tissue guards and the back of previous plates, some other plates slightly stained in the margins, but otherwise in very good condition.

        Collecção de noticias para a historia e geografia das nações ultramarinas . tomo I, Num. I. II. e III

      Na Typ. da Academia, Lisboa 1812 - vi, 178 pp. Includes: 1. Breve relação dos escrituras dos gentios da India Oriental, e dos seus costumes (pp. 1-59) [A short account of the gentios of India and their customs]; 2. Noticia summaria do gentilismo da Asia (pp. 61-126) [A short account of paganism in Asia]; These have been attributed by Francisco Maria Esteves Pereria to Fernão de Queiroz, a 17th c. Jesuit, whose translation of the Bhagavat-Gita was only first published in 1922, and may have been the first translation into a western language of that work. Esteves Pereria considered it a sequel to the two pieces contained in this volume (see Ethel Pope: India in Portuguese Literature, (Bastorá: Tipografia Rangel, 1937; pp. 166-168). 3. Joseph de Anchieta. Epistola quamplurimarum rerum naturalium, quae S. Vincentii (nunc S. Paulí) provinciam incolunt, sistens descriptionem (pp. 127-178) [Communication of the very many natural things which dwell in the province of St. Vincent (now São Paulo) systematically described]. The Spanish Jesuit missionary José de Anchieta (1534 -1597) was one of the founders of São Paulo (1554) and Rio de Janeiro a decade later. Best known for his book "The Art of Grammar" on the indigenous Old Tupi language, he was also an accomplished naturalist as revealed in this work. The "Collecção" would eventually run to seven volumes published over 30 years. Quite uncommon. Last partial or complete set at auction in 1948. Sabin 14362. Leclerc 126. Innocencio V.2 (p.87-88): 353. Rodrigues 658. Borba de Moraes 164. Greenlee 524. Near fine, small period stamp on title page.

        Touching Autograph Letter Signed to 'Sir', (Jane, widow of Spencer Perceval, 1762-1812, from 1809 Prime Minister)

      1812 - saying that "Lord Arden shewed me yesterday Evening a letter that he had received . on the subject of a small loan (as you are pleased to consider it) that you received from Mr. Perceval in the year 1804 . & ill should I repay that sacred trust which has so awfully devolved upon me if I did not make it a point of duty as it is of consolation to fulfill the spirit of all his wishes . I am very certain that he never intended that you should repay him one shilling of it - he called it a loan to make it more acceptable to your feelings & much as I respect the high sense of honor that has led you . I can safely assure you that the liberality of Parliament & the kindness of my own family . render it impossible that such a trifle should ever be missed by me or my Children - and deprives this act of respect to the memory of my beloved Husband of all the merit of self denial", 4 sides 4to black-edged, Downing Street, 2nd June Spencer Perceval was assassinated on 11th May 1812 by a bankrupt with a grievance against him.

        Anatomie generale, appliquee a la physiologie et a la medecine.

      Brosson & Gabon, 1812., Paris: - Four volumes. 8vo. cxii, 244; [4], (245)-636; xxviii, 414; [4], (415)-828 pp. Two folding charts. Contemporary quarter calf over marbled boards, gilt-stamped spine panels and titles; light insect damage to spine of Vol. 4. Very good. Second edition. �Bichat revolutionized descriptive anatomy. Where Morgagni and other shad conceived of whole organs being diseased, Bichat showed how individual tissues could be separately affected. He covered tissue pathology, system by system in the Anatomie generale, showing that tissues from different organs are similar and subject to the same diseases, and identifying 21 different types of tissues. This was done essentially without a microscope, but marks the beginning of modern histology.� [Garrison & Morton].

        Plate 74; White Hanover, White Marseilles, Brown Naples, Purple Fig, Green Ischia, Brunswick

      London: 1804 - 1812 - Sheet Dimension: 22 x 18 in. Hand-colored aquatint engraving. Brookshaw’s fine illustrations make excellent use of the rich, modulated tones that the aquatint process creates. The elegantly arranged and richly colored fruits emerge from deep brown backgrounds or float on a softly mottled light ground, creating a presence unlike that of any other botanical illustrations. Brookshaw asserts in the preface that the Pomona Britannica was an enduring work created for the enjoyment and edification of “succeeding generations.” The beauty and uniqueness of his illustrations guarantees the lasting value of this most exceptional work.
