        Plate 16; Drap d'Or, White Gage Plum, Blue Gage Plum, Green Gage

      London: 1804 - 1812 - Sheet Dimension: 19.25 x 15.25 in. Frame Dimension: 29.75 x 25.75 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.

      Paris: Gabon, Libraire, place de l'Ecole de Medicine, 1812. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Elephant Folio - over 15 - 23" tall. 31 pp. The definitive work at the time on the hernia; Scarpa's fascia and Scarpa's triangle were derived from this work. Antonio Scarpa (1752-1832) was a renowned doctor and professor, so well known that when Napoleon was made King of Italy in 1805, he visited the University of Padua and asked to meet the famous doctor. This volume contains the PLATES ONLY for the work, which is the first French version. ***DESCRIPTION: The volume is bound (we believe rebound) between sturdy card covers with a blue cloth spine, the author's last name is neatly written on the spine, bound into the book after the front free endpaper is what appears to be the original wrap in cobalt blue with a paper label, this is followed by the title page and then the listing of the plates; the eleven engraved plates follow on the right-hand side, with the ten outline plates facing on the left-hand side, TEXT IN FRENCH; large folio size (approximately 16.25" tall), pagination: (1)-15, followed by the plates, volume comprised of 29 leaves total. The volume is encased on a custom clamshell box covered with blue cloth matching the spine and lined with tan paper, with a black leather spine label. ***CONDITION: Overall very good; while there is some foxing and browning to the pages and minor overall edgewear, the browning is in the margins only and the foxing is mild. The binding is strong, the text block is secure, the hinges are solid, all plates are present as called for (although they are missing the tissue guards), and the only prior owner marking we saw is a small (approximately one-half inch) arrow in black ink drawn on the front joint pointing "up", we assume as an assist to open the book correctly as there is no label on the front board. The clamshell box is also very good overall with some general wear and light soiling, with one small scrape at the bottom of the front, it remains solid and sturdy. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that due to the size of this volume additional postage may apply; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Natural History, General and Particular… Illustrated with Above Six Hundred Copper Plates. The History of Man and Quadrupeds Translated, with Notes and Observations, by William Smellie, Member of the Antiquarian and Royal Societies of Edinburgh. A New Edition, Carefully Corrected and Considerably Enlarged, by Many Additional Articles, Notes, and Plates. (etc.) (Complete with all plates present)

      T. Cadell and W. Davies, London 1812 - Octavo, 20 volumes, complete, with all plates present. In contemporary full treecalf, with gilt spines, morocco spine labels, gilt borders, and marbled endpapers. The volumes range from about good to very good or better condition. Most of the spine ends are worn, and there is general, but shallow wear to the corners and fore-edges of many volumes. The front board of Volume I is detached, but present, and some other volumes share a similar, but happier fate, with the front board hanging on by the stitching. The stitching is thick rope, so while the outer joints are no longer holding, the rope is keeping the binding together (more images upon request). The plates are overall in lovely condition, with as many as a few dozen affected by mild to moderate foxing or age-toning, mostly in the birds section (and mostly within Volume XII). Still, the overwhelming majority of the plates are bright and clean, without so much as a single spot of foxing. Happy to provide any images of any specific plates upon request. The text leaves opposite the plates are partly age-toned, as is to be expected, but all other text leaves are bright and clean, with only the most scattered foxed leaves. Some faint and shallow dampstains to a few volumes, hardly affecting any plates. Plate III in Volume I (a folding plate) has a thumb-sized chip at one corner, not approaching the image. There were a few binding/printing mistakes, but all in the positive (or at least neutral) direction - there are two copies of plate 254 bound in right next to each other, and plates 46-54 in Volume XII are all in the wrong order, but all present. A few spines are just about split, but holding. Some minor, and seemingly incomplete, repairs to a few spine labels (they were not re-titled in gilt - see images), but this is otherwise a completely original set with no other evident repairs. Though external condition makes this decidedly not a fine set in terms of condition, the plates are overwelmingly in lovely shape, and the whole set is mercifully complete. Bookplate of Joseph Neeld appears in each volume. Neeld was a Solicitor in Middlesex, England around the time of publication, and this could have belonged to him or his son of the same name, who was soon after an MP for Gatton, Surrey, and, later, Chippenham, Wiltshire. A desirable set. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A grammar of the Malayan language with an introduction and a praxis

      London: printed for the author by Cox and Baylis, 1812. First edition, 4to, pp. [4], l, [2], 225, [2]; late 19th century half blue morocco gilt over marbled boards, t.e.g.; very good and sound. Textually complete with the half title and the final leaf advertising his Malayan dictionary and his History of Sumatra. Well represented in institutions, but scarce in the trade. Marsden (1754-1836), orientalist and numismatist, "during an eight years' residence in Sumatra, did good official service as sub-secretary, and afterwards as principal secretary, to the government. He amused his leisure hours by writing verses and by acting female parts in a theatre at Bencoolen built and chiefly managed by his brother. He also mastered the vernacular tongue, a study which bore fruit later," in both the present volume and his dictionary, published earlier the same year (DNB).

        Liber Studiorum.

      plates watermarked 1807-1810 1812 - 2 volumes. Folio. (36.4 x 52 cm). Each volume with sheet of thick card with elaborate manuscript title, vol. number and list of plates in black ink and 71 etched mezzotint and aquatint plates (vol. I with plates numbered 1 - 35, vol. II with 36 - 71) printed in warm sanguine or sepia ink on uncut sheets of laid or wove paper as applicable with stab marks at left and retaining deckle edges, each plate mounted to sheet of card with passepartout, pencil numeration to passepartouts at lower right. Plates by J. M. W. Turner (10 plates), I. C. Easling (4), C. Turner (23), W. Say (11), R. Dunkarton (5), Thos. Lupton (4), S. W. Reynolds (2), F. C. Lewis (1), W. Annis (1), H. Dawe (4), Th. Hodgetts (3), Annis and Easling (1) and G. Clint (2) after J. M. W. Turner. One plate with several old repairs, occasional foxing or soiling; several plates with pencil annotations recto or verso in various hands. Various sheet sizes: c.300 x 440 mm; mount size: 344 x 508 mm. Contemporary green morocco portfolios by Agnew & Sons with their partial label to front pastedown of vol. I, front boards with rules in gilt and blind with floral corner tools, titles gilt to spines, cream glazed board lining and flaps, turn-ins ruled in gilt, green silk ties. A very good complete set of Turner's famed Liber Studiorum, with all plates on uncut sheets. Turner's Liber Studiorum, issued in a series of 14 parts of 5 plates per part, was published intermittently over the course of more than a decade. Turner began with the intention to produce the etched foundation of each plate himself and to leave the mezzotint to others, however, he experimented himself and eight of the plates were finished by Turner himself. For the remaining plates, Turner intended originally to use the engraver Charles Turner, but the painter's exacting demands and the disputes they led to made it necessary to use many others. Seventy-one plates were published eventually of a proposed one hundred, with a further twenty printed but never published; the published plates are categorised as architectural, pastoral, marine, historical and mountains with the corresponding initial printed above each. Turner's title for the series, the Liber Studiorum, is a direct reference to the Liber Veritatis of Claude Lorraine. In the present, complete, copy, the states (as per Finberg) are as follows: 7 plates in first state, 22 plates in second state, 25 plates in third state, 12 plates in fourth state, 5 plates in fifth state and no plates in sixth or later states. Full details of the state of each plate and their order is available on request. 'Were all Turner's paintings and drawings destroyed, his Liber Studiorum would suffice to establish his reputation as one of the great artists of Europe . the work contains some of the freshest and most vigorous outpourings of Turner's genius .Liber Studiorum is the work of a young man. Artists sometimes like poets do their best work when they are young. It may be that Turner's Liber Studiorum contains the pith of all that is best in his life and work.' (Finberg). ' . a truly monumental work, taking rank with the highest production of Turner's genius, and exhibiting intimately his strength, as indeed also his weakness, during a period of his life in which a large part of his strongest and soberest . work was done . '. (Rawlinson). Finberg 1 - 71; see also Rawlinson, Turner's Liber Studiorum, London 1878. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Les Peuples de la Russie, ou Description des Moeurs, Usages et Costumes des Diverses Nations de l'Empire de Russie, Accompagnée de Figures Coloriées.

      De l'Imprimerie de D. Colas Paris - 1813 1812 - 2 vols. Folio. Vol. I with half-title, title and dedication to the Czar, the 'discours préliminaire' (pp. 13), 61 leaves of descriptive text for the plates and 48 hors-texte hand-coloured aquatint plates; vol. II with half-title, title, 66 leaves of descriptive text (including index and list of plates) and 48 hors-texte hand-coloured aquatint plates; without pl. 18 in vol. 1 "Don Cosaques", with supplementary plate "Snow Mountains in Tobolsk". Near contemporary full green morocco with elaborate gilt decoration; rebacked. FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ILLUSTRATED BOOKS ON RUSSIA AND HER PEOPLES. The work was published in three states: uncoloured, coloured and the much rarer hand-coloured version offered here. The 96 magnificent colour plates of Rechberg's work depict the life and costume of the various people of the Russian Empire, among them the Mongols, the Kirghiz, the Slavs, those from Kamchatka, the Cossacks, the Siberian animists, the Tartars and so on. The most striking depict marriage, hunting scenes and Tartar horse racing. This copy includes the Russian Bath plate which is often missing. All of the plates were engraved after original drawings by Karneev by Skotnikov, Manz, Melnikov, Laminit, Adam, Coqueret, Wagner, Hess and Gros. Charles (or Carl) de Rechberg was the Bavarian ambassador to the court of Alexander I. A passionate collector - particularly of Russian art and watercolours - Rechberg came across the artist Karneev who had travelled extensively in Russia between 1802 and 1805, sketching and painting as he went. Rechberg offered to help publish the sketches and the two men travelled to Munich where Karneev prepared his drawings for publication. The sketches were eventually published in Paris - during the turmoil of the Napoleonic Wars - without the supervision of Karneev or Rechberg. Karneev returned to Russia, Rechberg provided a text to accompany the artist's illustrations, edited by Depping, but had been appointed to the Bavarian general staff and was presumably occupied with matters of state.

        Journal of a Residence in India.

      Edinburgh, printed by George Ramsey, 1812. 4to. Modern half calf over marbled boards with raised bands and red morocco lettering-piece; pp. vii, 211 hand-coloured engraved frontispiece, and 15 engraved and etched plates (two folding, these washed); a little browning or spotting in places, frontispiece with mended margina flaw, one appendix page cropped at lower margin and contemporary marginal annotation. Maria Graham (1785-1842) was the daughter of the naval officer Rear-Admiral George Dundas and his wife, Miss Thomson or Thompson, a Virginian brought up in Liverpool. An enthusiastic student, Maria Dundas enjoyed the company of a wide intellectual circle and read widely, and in late 1808 she sailed to India with her sister, younger brother and father, who had been appointed to the Commission of the Navy in Bombay, and 'she kept a journal of the voyage, which records her pleasure in tasting her first banana, reading Froissart's Chronicles, learning Persian, drawing (many of these sketches are now in the British Museum), and teaching the four youngest midshipmen. Among the passengers was Lieutenant Thomas Graham, with whom she fell in love while they were reading together the somewhat unromantic works of Tacitus and Dugald Stewart's Philosophy of the Human Mind. They were engaged when the ship docked in Bombay in May 1809, and were married on 9 December 1809. Over the next two years Maria Graham travelled fairly widely in south and east India, sometimes with her husband, staying in Madras, Calcutta, and Ceylon, and developing a keen interest in Indian culture, religion, and antiquities' (ODNB). Following her return to England in 1811, Maria Graham published her Journal of a Residence in India (1812), a book 'covering everything from flora and wildlife to Parsi theology and the daily routine of the Madras lady', which 'is a lively account of her stay in India, and includes extensive descriptions and illustrations of her visits to the cave temples of Elephanta, Carli, and Canary, and the ancient city of Maliaballipooram' (loc. cit.). - The frontispiece is a portrait of Munshi Ibrahim, the Malay scribe who wrote most of Raffles' Jawi letters to the Rulers of the archipelago. In appendix II (pp. 197-203) Ibrahim describes his visit to Calcutta where he stayed with John Leyden and met Lord Minto.

        VOLCANISM WORLD MAP: SÜDLICHE UND NOERDLICHE HALBKUGEL DER ERDE NACH DEN NEUESTEN ENTDECKUNGEN DER VULKANISCHEN-LINIEN.

      Copper engraving with original colour in outline, printed on blue paper (Very Good, usual soft folds, slightly stained along the folds) 46 x 60 cm (18.2 x 23.6 inches). - Weimar: Verlag des Geographischen Instituts 1812. An uncommon map of the World with marked vulcanic lines was published to accompany a scientific article by a German researcher of antiquity and Egyptologist Friedrich Sickler in 1812. - An uncommon map of the World, shows the volcano lines, was published to accompany a scientific article on volcanoes by a German researcher Friedrich Carl Ludwig Sickler (1773 – 1836) in 1812, in Weimar, Germany. Sickler was a teacher, Egyptologist, researcher of Antiquity and a friend of Wilhelm von Humboldt. In his article Sickler analyses the role of the volcanoes in the antiquity through ancient texts and myths. In the second part of the text, which is relevant for our map, the author explains the main lines, connecting the active and ancient volcanoes of the Earth. The map together with the article, was published in June, 1812, in a scientific magazine Allgemeine geographische Ephemeriden, which was edited by Friedrich Johann Justin Bertuch (1747-1822), a German publisher, who specialised in books and magazines on natural science. His name is usually connected with the richly illustrated encyclopaedia for children Bilderbuch für Kinder, issued in 12 volumes between 1790-1830. References: Friedrich Sickler, Abhandlungen. Ideen zu einem vulcanischem Globus. in: Allgemeine geographische Ephemeriden, 1812, pp. 121ff.

The plates from this edition were first published by R. W. Dickson under the pseudonym Alexander McDonald in "A Complete Dictionary of Practical Gardening" (1807). However, in this edition the presentation of the plates is far superior due to the more brilliant coloration and the fact that a higher quality paper stock was used to print the plates in the first place.

Contemp. half brown calf over marbled boards, spine tooled in gilt with alternating black and red labels; very sl. splitting along tails of following hinges, boards sl. rubbed. Bookplate of E. H. (Edward Howard) Greenly, & ink ownership inscription of Lady Elizabeth Greenly on each titlepage. An attractive copy of an exceptionally rare early nineteenth-century novel.BL, Liverpool, University of Sydney & University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign only.Contemporary paper strip tipped over first publisher's name (Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Browne) within imprint of each title with 'For' written in ink, so that the altered imprint reads 'Gloucester: printed by Joseph Wood, for Brisley, Stroud; and Washbourn, Gloucester'. The novel was also issued by the Minerva Press for A.K. Newman in 1812, with only one extant copy at the BL. It seems likely that Longmans - the original publishers - disassociated themselves from the novel after the sheets had already been printed by Joseph Wood, so he and his local associates covered the Longmans imprint on the original titlepage and sold what they could. Shortly afterwards, the Minerva Press must have bought the original sheets and issued them with a cancel titlepage reading 'London: printed at the Minerva Press, For A.K. Newman and Co. Leadenhall-Street. 1812', with 'Printed by J. Wood, Herald Office, Gloucester' on verso. The novel is a tale of inheritance and mistaken identity, and tells the story of a gypsy girl who is taken in by a wealthy bachelor and raised as a member of the family. It was reviewed as a Minerva Press novel by early women's magazine La Belle Assemblée in 1812 (Issue 40) and was declared an enjoyable, though predictable, first novel. The reviewer writes that the authoress 'certainly has talents' for the 'just delineation of natural character' and states that 'we shall be glad to see a future production of this lady's.' The anonymous author's second book Lady Jane's Pocket was published by the Minerva Press for A.K. Newman in 1815.

Le vol. 12 contient une table alphabétique et chronologique des personnages célèbres dont les portraits sont contenus dans la Galerie historique (32 pages dépliantes). Le vol. 13 constitue un tome supplémentaire.Monglond VI-col. 1298 ; Quérard IV-pp. 520-524."Les planches sont toutes signées "Landon dirext". Parfois le nom du peintre ou du dessinateur de l'original s'y ajoute." (Monglond).Landon, peintre, critique d'art, conservateur du département de peinture au Louvre, fut aussi un éditeur à succès, qui sut s'entourer de collaborateurs éminents ; ce que confirme un prospectus imprimé à la fin d'un des volumes des Annales : "Les auteurs de la Galerie historique sont MM. Auger, Biot, de l'Institut, professeur de physique au Collège de France, Bourdois, docteur-régent de la Faculté de médecine de Paris, Cuvier, de l'Institut, professeur et administrateur du Museum d'histoire naturelle, de Barante, ci-devant auditeur au conseil d'Etat, préfet de la Vendée, de Maussion, ancien officier de marine, Desfontaines, Feuillet, bibliothécaire adjoint de l'Institut, La Renaudière, Le Breton, de l'Institut, Legrand, architecte des monuments publics, Leuliette, professeur de belles-lettres, Quatremère de Quincy, de l'Institut, Taillefer, professeur de belles-lettres.Quelques articles ont été fournis par MM. Bergasse, Cauchy, secrétaire des archives du Sénat, Guinguené, de l'Institut, Moreau (de la Sarthe), médecin-bibliothécaire de l'Ecole de médecine, Petit-Radel, de l'Institut, etc. Plusieurs des collaborateurs ont désiré garder l'anonyme. L'éditeur s'est réservé les notices concernant les peintres et les sculpteurs."La correspondance de Béranger recueillie par Paul Boiteau (p. 46) insiste sur le rôle que Béranger a joué dans la réalisation de l'ouvrage : "Parmi les anonymes, il paraît qu'il faut compter réellement des hommes distingués comme Andrieux et Delambre, mais Béranger est celui qui a supporté le poids journalier de la rédaction pendant le temps qu'il a passé dans les bureaux de Landon."Ce que confirme Quérard, Les supercheries litt. II-col. 652 : "Ainsi nous savons pertinemment que Monsieur Béranger [.] a fait un bon nombre des notices pour la Galerie historique des hommes les plus célèbres, publiée sous le nom de Landon et dont Monsieur Béranger fut le directeur."Landon mettait autant de soin à imprimer son nom en toutes lettres sur des ouvrages dont il n'était que l'éditeur que les auteurs ou traducteurs en mettaient à cacher le leur."Quérard, dans la France littéraire IV-p. 66, juge très favorablement ce dictionnaire biographique : "La Galerie historique peut tenir lieu de dictionnaire historique. Elle en présente les principaux avantages sans en offrir les inconvénients. La plupart de ces dictionnaires sont ou trop volumineux et contiennent une foule de personnages dont on n'a guère le désir de consulter l'histoire, ou trop abrégés et ne présentent qu'une réunion, toujours trop nombreuse d'articles arides qui ne contiennent ordinairement que des dates ou des titres. La Galerie historique au contraire, est un recueil de portraits graphiques et historiques des personnes les plus célèbres de tous les siècles et de toutes les nations."

      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. 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.

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

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.
