        HISTORY OF ENGLAND, From the Earliest Times to the Death of George the Second... With a Continuation to the Treaty of Amiens by Charles Coote

      London: For F. C. and J. Rivington; et al, 1812. 4 volumes. A very early edition of Goldsmith's history, corrected, and only the second edition to include Coote's continuation up to 1802. Tall 8vos, in handsome contemporary mottled calf, the boards with gilt chain framework, the spines with elegant central gilt devices in compartments between extensively decorated flat bands, two compartments with contrasting red and black morocco labels gilt lettered and tooled, board edges hatched in blind, page edges speckled. viii, 422; 447; 431; 567 pp. A beautiful, gentlemanly and pristine set, the text appearing essentially as mint, very fresh and crisp, the bindings strong and sturdy and handsome. A VERY HANDSOME SET IN FULL CONTEMPORARY STATE OF GOLDSMITH'S IMPORTANT POLITICAL HISTORY OF ENGLAND. Though best remembered now for his novels, Goldsmith's "History" was a staple of 19th century upper education, thus is rarely found in such fine condition. It is recognized for its balanced and unbiased delivery, its largest criticisms were for being too concise. Goldsmith's own work begins with the pre-Roman Britons and ends with George II. Coote's very excellent continuation provides us with an entire volume on the age of George III, whose Reign was longer than any other British monarch before him. Events in this extraordinary period of time included the Seven Years War, the American Revolution, the French Revolution and the early Napoleonic years.

        Dissertation physiologique sur la gazéification vitale [et] Dissertation sur l'ivraie

      in-4 à la pagination multiple et manuscrite pleine basane de l'époque, dos lisse orné portant une pièce de titre en maroquin rouge 1812 [et] 1813, 1812 [et] 1813, , in-4 à la pagination multiple et manuscrite, pleine basane de l'époque, dos lisse orné portant une pièce de titre en maroquin rouge, Recueil personnel, et de travail, constitué par le médecin Bernard Gaspard autour de trois thèses : la sienne (Dissertation physiologique sur la gazéification vitale, Paris, Didot, 1812), celle de Jean-Baptiste Clabaud (Dissertation sur l'ivraie, Paris, Didot, 1813) et de celle de Bouillier (Dissertation sur la difficulté du diagnostic de la péricardite, Paris, Didot, 1812). Pour la première de ces thèses, Gaspard annote très copieusement et développe de nombreux passages, ainsi il enrichit son texte originel par des dizaines de feuillets manuscrits interfoliés. Mais surtout, Gaspard nous apprend dans ce même recueil, par un avertissement manuscrit et des lettres, faisant foi de son affirmation, que la thèse de Jean-Baptiste Clabaud avait, en réalité, été écrit par lui-même dans le but d'aider son ami Clabaud de Fretigny. Ce témoignage manuscrit nous permet donc de réattribuer la paternité d'un texte de médecine à son véritable auteur. Enfin, Gaspard a ajouté une troisième thèse, celle de Bouiller, car, nous apprend-il, il a "communiqué à l'auteur le 4e observation et parce "qu'il a" fait l'autopsie cadavérique de son malheureux frère, sujet de la 1ere observation"?

        Tales of Fashionable Life

      London: Printed for J. Johnson, 1812. Complete set of Anglo-Irish educator and novelist Maria Edgeworth's Tales of Fashionable Life: the second edition of Volumes I-III, and the first edition of Volumes IV-VI. Known as "the Great Maria," Edgeworth was widely acclaimed in her day: her emphasis on practical, hands-on education for children was influential on both sides of the Atlantic, and bestsellers like Castle Rackrent and Belinda inspired a generation of English novelists. Tales of Fashionable Life includes a series of short works, most notably The Absentee, which traces the exploitation of the Irish land and people at the hands of absentee landowners: "a great part of your timber, the growth of a century -- swallowed in the entertainments of one winter in London!" Informed by Edgeworth's firsthand knowledge of Anglo-Irish manners and politics, The Absentee's regional realism impressed writers as diverse as Walter Scott, Ivan Turgenev, and John Ruskin. This set was part of the library at Ashley Combe in Somerset, built in 1799 and improved in 1835 for the benefit of Ada Byron, daughter of poet Lord Byron and young bride of Ashley Combe's owner, William King, later the First Earl of Lovelace. A gifted polymath, Ada Lovelace would work with mathematician Charles Babbage on his Difference Engine and Analytical Engine, and her notes on the latter, which contain an algorithm for generating Bernoulli numbers, are often cited as the first computer program. In 1886, decades after Ada's death, the Earl purchased the Ben Damph Forest in Scotland, and built Ben Damph House, where these books eventually settled. A near-fine set of literary classics, with a connection to two pioneering nineteenth-century Englishwomen. Six twelvemo volumes, contemporary three-quarter calf over marbled paper boards, spines ruled and numbered in gilt, red morocco spine labels lettered in gilt and tooled with a floral gilt border. All half-titles present. Contemporary stamp of Ashley Combe to front pastedowns, later stamp of Ben Damph Forest Library to front free endpapers. Shelfwear to paper boards and corners.

        Political Essays. A Series of Letters Addressed to the People of the United States

      Canandaigua [NY]: J.D. Bemis, 1812. First Edition. 12mo, 215x pp, in original full leather with gilt spine label. A sound, very good copy with edges rubbed, some chipping and toning to endpapers, previous owner's name ink-stamped on top edge of text block. Pickering (1745-1829), who served as Secretary of State under Washington and John Adams and as a U.S. Senator from 1803 to 1811, was an ardent Federalist and vocal opponent of Jefferson and Madison. In 1804 and several times thereafter, he urged the establishment of a northern confederacy (to include New York and New England) to counteract Jefferson's political power and protect New England's commercial interests. This collection of essays, composed as Pickering campaigned vigorously against war with Britain, expresses his views on a variety of topics, including the failures, miscalculations, and deceptions of Jefferson and Madison; the Embargo Act; and the perils associated with the looming war. Sabin 62657; Howes P-339 (noting that this was the first bound book printed in Western New York.).

        [Introducing electricity through experiments]. Constantinople, 1227 AH (= 1812 AD).

      1812. 8vo (222 x 150 mm). 16 ff., mostly with 24 text lines to each page (text area 155 x 70 mm). Written in excellent Naskh script with black ink on waxed paper. Headings and highlighted words in red. Two (folded) plates on velin paper (watermark: A. Stace 1802). With carefully executed pen-and-ink drawings with notes in red (167 x 194 mm each). Contemp. red half leather. Covered with Ebru paper, with leather edges and marbled endpapers. The original Ottoman Turkish manuscript of one of the most important texts in the history of electrical engineering and science: the complete treatise on electrical fluid, as drafted by the Turkish engineer Yahya Naci the same year. "In the early 19th century, the teaching of science at the Imperial Engineering School in Istanbul was mostly based on the material translated from textbooks compiled for the French 'grandes écoles'. Translations and compilations were generally made by the professors of the school. Yahya Naci Efendi (d. 1824), a lecturer in French language and sciences, compiled in 1812 a treatise introducing the properties of electricity through experiments. His aim was also to show that the lightning flash and the thunderbolt were electrical phenomenons. Yahya Naci's main source was the chapter on electricity of Mathurin-Jacques Brisson's (d. 1795) 'Traité Elémentaire de Physique', a popular book of physics in French colleges. This translation is important because Yahya Naci endeavoured to create Ottoman terms from Arabic regarding electricity and because it points to the initiatives in introducing experimentation in the teaching in the Imperial Engineering School" (Günergün). The colophon states the name of the scribe as "Yahya Naqi" and the date "Zilqa'da 1227 H.", proving that the present volume constitutes the author's long-lost original manuscript. - In very fine condition; only a few insignificant spots.

Dickson under the pseudonym Alexander McDonald, between 1805 and 1807, but here issued separately with text added. "The plates are well coloured and many American flowers are included."?Dunthorne.

Brundell, a consulting Civil Engineer at Doncaster.

        Collection of 3 theatre bills for Iffland's 1812 guest performance at Weimar. Weimar, [1812].

      1812. 3 theatre bills. Folio (c. 220 x 355 mm). Announcing the performances of "Don Ranudo de Colibrados" and Kotzebue's "Der arme Poet" on Dec. 27, as well as the "Lästerschule" on Dec. 28. 12. (Iffland playing Don Ranudo, Lorenz Kindlein, and the Baron); Shakespeare's "Merchant of Venice" on Dec. 29 (Iffland in the role of Shylock); and, finally, of Goldoni's "Der gutherzige Polterer" (Iffland's translation, with him playing Morhof) and Kotzebues "Der häusliche Zwist" (Dec. 30). - Iffland, who had created a sensation in 1782 as the first "Moor" in Schiller's "Die Räuber", gave his final performance in Weimar in the last days of December 1812. Goethe, who had previously succeeded in bringing the actor to Weimar in 1796, attended all performances and was Iffland's host on Dec. 28. A few days before Iffland's arrival, Goethe had written to Zelter: "It is probably one of the rarest of phenomena, and one, I think, that has never occurred with any other nation, that the greatest actor should generally select for himself parts, which are intrinsically unworthy of him, though, by his acting, he knows how to invest them with the highest momentary value" (12 Dec.) A few weeks after his departure, Goethe wrote: "Iffland's presence was a great delight to me. I gave myself up to the pure enjoyment of his talent, endeavoured to understand everything as he gave it, and did not trouble myself about what he gave [...] Thus I have greatly admired Iffland's way of throwing life into dead plays, - nay, his creation out of nothing [...] In addition, I thought it remarkable, that Iffland, who, in his written plays, aims at the most ample breadth, in his acting, conjures up again the conciseness and terseness of plays that are extemporized. How different our stage would seem, if he had not been forced to take this roundabout way [...]" (15 Jan. 1813). - Somewhat brownstained and wrinkled; slight edge defects; traces of folds and sewing. Numbered at the upper edge by a contemp. hand: "21"; "33"; "37".
