        A subaltern in America; comprising his narrative of the campaigns of the British army, at Baltimore, Washington, &c. &c. during the late war.

      First edition with this title: A first-person account of an English soldier's life and career in America during the War of 1812, originally published in 1821 under the subtitle of this American edition. The work has been widely attributed to Georg Robert Gleig, but Sabin quotes Babcock as saying, "a careful examination of the volume . . . makes it perfectly clear that Gleig could not have written it." => A pencilled annotation in one margin of this copy reads "The author is not aware that the people in the Southern States are not called Yankees"; one particularly anti-American remark later in the volume has been lined through in pencil.

        Anatomie du Gladiateur combattant, de la tête d'Apollon, etc., par Jean-Galbert Salvage, copie d'après l'Édition à Paris

      Paris 1812 - Half cloth and marbled paper; folio (445x376mm); contains a manuscript title-page and 14 anatomical drawings in black and red ink, captioned by hand; all on the recto only of heavy cardstock leaves tipped onto cloth stubs. Highly skilled copy of Salvage's "Anatomie du Gladiateur," with plates numbered 1-14. Binding a little scuffed and bowed. Some light foxing and age-toning; faint waterstain along bottom edge of first two plates. Salvage, an army surgeon at the military hospital of Val-de Grâce, studied drawing and the art of plaster casting. He created three monumental écorchés of a gladiator in combat, preserved at the Ecole Nationale des Beaux-Arts, on which he based this beautiful atlas. Salvage's atlas was in the tradition of Genga's anatomy for artists, which presented the anatomy through the ideal forms of ancient sculpture, except that Salvage based most of it on his own sculptural studies. "His plates are based on three casts of bodies dissected to different anatomical layers and set in the pose of the Borghese Gladiator. For these casts he preferred to use the bodies of soldiers in their prime killed in duels rather than patients who died as a result of illness. The plates are colour-coded, with the muscles in red ink and the bones in black ink. The contour of the body in the skeleton plates is given in red ink, and a broken line of the same colour is used for the detached muscles in the plates of deeper dissection. This system of transparent anatomy serves as an effective aide-mémoire for the viewer of the different anatomical layers and was a popular method of anatomical illustration" (Cazort, Kornell & Roberts, The Ingenious Machine of Nature: Four Centuries of Art and Anatomy [1996], pp 219-220).

        Spain & Portugal reduced from Jasper Nantiat's Map in Four Sheets.

      London: W. Faden, April 12,, 1812. Folding engraved map, coloured in outline, dissected into 20 panels and mounted on linen (opens 558 × 786 mm; folded 188 × 130 mm). In the original marbled card sleeve-case, paper label to the front panel. Sleeve somewhat rubbed at the extremities, but unrestored and sound, linen backing of the map thinning at the folds, but similarly sound, a very good example. First thus. The insufficiencies of the British Army's cartographic provision for the Peninsular War have been much discussed; "Except for a few broadsheet maps of Spain and Portugal, and William Faden's plans of the British possessions of Gibraltar and Minorca, the London map trade had paid little attention to the Iberian Peninsula before 1808 other than to include smallscale maps in general atlases of Europe or the world. The military mobilization motivated a surge of some twenty new maps, not least because Army and Naval officers had to acquire their own maps and charts from the commercial market. Most of these productions, however, were based on López's maps and thus repeated his errors. Not surprisingly, although the Army made some use of these works, they were strongly criticized; in General Thomas Graham's opinion 'Faden's maps are only fit for burning'" (Smith, "Peninsular War Cartography: A New Look at the Military Mapping of General Sir George Murray and the Quartermaster General's Department" in Imago Mundi, 65, 2, 2013, p.235). Judge Advocate General Larpent was similarly disappointed in their coverage; " I have my routeÂ… We are to carry provisions for four days with us, then provide for three, and start to-morrow or next day Â… then go on to Fuentes de Castelegos, Forgadilla, Calcade de Don Diego, Salamanca. Few of these places are in Faden's map" (The Private Journal Â… I, p.21). An attractive map, the deficiencies of which are certainly of historical interest.

An unusually clean copy in excellent condition. This edition has been slightly revised and a short account of the Revolution of 1809 added to the Appendix. Abbey, Travel, 160. Prideaux pp. 232 & 343. Tooley 314. Mackenzie was a distinguished mineralogist and president of the physical class of the Royal Society, traveled to Iceland in 1810 in the company of Drs. Henry Holland and Richard Bright. The present work is the joint production of the three men, Mackenzie contributing the narrative of the voyage and travels, and the chapters on mineralogy, rural economy and commerce, Dr. Bright the sections on zoology and botany, and Dr. Holland the chapters on literature, diseases, and government, laws and religion. "Although the scientific portions of the book have long been superseded, it contains much information of permanent interest on the social and economic condition of Iceland." (DNB) The mineralogical collections brought back from the expedition were spoken of with great admiration by Sir Charles Lyell. The fine hand-coloured aquatints of scenery and costume by J. Clark and text engravings and plates by R. Scott and E. Mitchell are based on original sketches by the three travelers, the majority drawn by Mackenzie. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [Apples] French Crab; Minshall Crab; Cockage Apple; Red Streack; Holland Burry; New Town Pippin

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1812. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In excellent condition with the exception of some soiling in the extreme edges of sheet. Bottom left corner has been expertly infilled. Image size: 16 x 12 1/2 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.

        The Temple of Flora, or Garden of the Botanist, (the so-called 'lottery edition').

      London: By the author,1812. - Small Folio, half morocco, rubbed, inner edges gilt-tooled, spine gilt in compartments, sunned. Engraved pictorial title and half-title,original hand-coloured stipple-engraved frontispiece, 2 uncoloured stipple engraverdallegorical plates, and 28 original hand-coloured aquatint botanical plates, printed in blue on thick wove paper, each c.370 x 290mm., occasional marginal soiling, some spotting and offsetting to tissue guards only;presentation inscription by Lady Sidmouth on front free endpaper, recipient's name partially erased, and armorialbookplate of M. Philips. Inscribed "For Miss Georgiana ., a last remembrance from Lady Sidmouth'" presumably around 1842, the year the second Lady Sidmouth died. There is a second inscription, attached as Thornton Sidmouth 1, of 'M. Sidmouth, Richmond Park'. This is clearly a different hand to the other, and must be that of Marianne Sidmouth, at their White Lodge, Richmond Park address, the house given to Viscount Sidmouth by a grateful King George III, therefore presumably inscribed between 1823 and 1842*** This reduced-format version of Thornton's magnum opus was published in a vain attempt to finance the continuationof the magnificent folio edition started in 1799. Copies of the book and individual plates were sold by lottery, but thisventure also failed and bankrupted Thornton. The work, however, in both formats remains one of the greatest of all botanical works. This copy includes the plate depicting The Persian Cyclamen, which is sometimes missing.

        THE EMPORIUM OF ARTS & SCIENCES

      Philadelphia, 1812. Contemporary three quarter red morocco and marbled boards. Slightly rubbed and bumped. Some foxing. A very good set. A work of great importance in the history of American technology. Issued as a magazine, it was founded by John Redman Coxe, professor of chemistry at the University of Pennsylvania, who edited the first two volumes. After that it was edited by Thomas Cooper, one of the best known American scientists of the time. Articles cover all fields of technology, including much on steam engines (with a letter from Oliver Evans), iron manufacture, other metal working, telescopes, cookery, wine making, and a broad cross-section of technical topics. Although there are plates noted in the lists of illustrations which are not present here, the set is in a contemporary binding and there is no sign of their having been removed; it is likely that sets contained a varying number of plates. The number of plates present here corresponds to sets we have held previously. MOTT, AMERICAN MAGAZINES, p.151. SABIN 17283. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 25176. RINK 62.

        THE STAR, A WEEKLY JOURNAL OF NEWS, POLITICKS, LITERATURE, AND THE USEFUL ARTS, FOR THE YEAR 1812. VOLUME IV

      Raleigh, 1812. Folio. Original half calf and paper boards. Boards heavily worn, some chipping, joints partially split. A few short tears to text, long closed tear to one leaf, first few and last few leaves with heavy creasing, moderate foxing and tanning. A complete copy in good condition. A rare collection of this important Southern periodical, with all fifty-two weekly issues, four pages each, from 1812. THE STAR was a unique enterprise, a North Carolina newspaper that set out to print solid news instead of focusing on rumors or "stud horse advertisements." One of the editors' main intentions was to provide a platform for the advancement of agricultural interests in the state. The man who would be responsible for the success of the newspaper over its first fifteen years was Thomas Henderson, Jr., a North Carolina native who had printed newspapers since at least 1806. After he moved to Raleigh in 1807, Henderson formed a partnership with Dr. Calvin Jones to publish THE STAR. Their goal, stated in an announcement in the rival newspaper, the Raleigh REGISTER, was to "pursue a firm yet liberal line of conduct, often giving facts, more seldom opinions, and those ever so candid and dispassionate; solicitous always to stifle the baneful spirit of faction, and looking with a single eye to the happiness and honour of United America." To the modern sensibility, the high-minded motives and intentions of the editors of THE STAR pale in comparison to the printed record of the business of slavery that survives in the newspaper's pages. Each issue contains multiple advertisements for slave auctions, rewards for the capture of runaway slaves, and notices of slaves caught and held in jails awaiting retrieval from their masters. Most of the runaway slave notices feature a small engraved image of a fleeing African-American beside the text. Rewards for runaway slaves vary from as little as $10 to as much as $100, depending on the slave's skill set, and the rancor of the master. Many ads run for weeks at a time, sometimes using stronger language with each subsequent week. The July 10, 1812 issue lists a $100 reward for a runaway slave that encapsulates the tone of most of the slavery notices in the STAR: "Ranaway from the subscriber on the 6th of March last, a mulatto man by the name of Jack, well built, about five feet five or six inches high, 28 eight years of age, a tolerable shoe maker, and has been much in the habit of driving a wagon -- He has a scar on his forehead and a part of one of his upper foreteeth is broken off, one of his wrists broke and crooked, and his right leg pretty much shot with small shot which will shew very plainly." The ad continues for almost two column inches, and provides details of Jack's suspected whereabouts and that he has been passing as a free man by the name of John Revill. The original subscriber, Levi Whitted, placing the ad lives in Knoxville, and he is requesting the ad run for six more weeks. In addition to a wealth of information on the institution of slavery, this run of THE STAR also contains a voluminous amount of reports of naval battles between the United States and the British and other news at the outset of the War of 1812. Several issues towards the end of the year have a column devoted to the conflict, called "The War," with various reports and letters from combatants. An important Southern newspaper with rich content on slavery, the War of 1812, contemporary politics and literature, and the Southern way of life in the early 19th century. William S. Powell. DICTIONARY OF NORTH CAROLINA BIOGRAPHY, pp.108-109.

        Map of the State of New York by Simeon De Witt Surveyor General Contracted from his large Map of the State

      New York, 1812. Engraved map, hand-coloured in outline, sectioned and linen-backed at a contemporary date. Housed in a black morocco backed box. Unique copy of De Witt's important 1804 map of New York, with county divisions updated to 1812. In 1778, George Washington appointed Simeon De Witt as the assistant to Robert Erskine, the first Geographer and Surveyor General of the United States, a position De Witt attained several years later. Following the war, De Witt became the first Surveyor General of New York, a position he held for an unprecedented fifty years. Among his first acts was to create the definitive first map of the state based on actual surveys. Following the settlement of the state's boundaries and accurate surveys which he directed, De Witt published a large wall map in 1802 - the first map of the state and the progenitor of similar mappings in other states. Two years later, De Witt issued this "contracted" version of his wall map, intending its circulation to meet a wider audience. According to Allen, however, the map, which was sold by subscription, "does not seem to have been as widely distributed as its predecessor, although it appears to have been designed to reach a wider audience. It may be that De Witt's 1804 map was unable to find a niche in competition with other small-scale maps of the state, such as those of Samuel Lewis" (Allen). Nevertheless, as Streeter commented, De Witt's 1804 map is "one of the earliest separate folding maps of New York after it became a state." Interestingly, the present copy suggests that De Witt, or an enterprising mapseller, made an additional attempt to market this map. This copy of the 1804 map is updated to 1812; that is, the map is as printed in 1804 but the county boundaries shown via period hand colouring depicts the state in 1812: the far western counties established in 1808 are clearly delineated (e.g. Chautauqua, Cattaraugus, and Niagara counties) but Erie County created in 1821 is not shown; Putnam county is shown separate from Dutchess County as per its establishment in 1812; Oneida County is shown with its western boundary on Lake Ontario, i.e. before the 1816 establishment of Oswego County; among other additions. In all the state is divided into 47 counties. We find no other example of De Witt's 1804 map altered in this fashion. The exactness and appearance of the colouring, however, suggests it to be a distinct issue of the map, or done for some official purpose, as opposed to an early owner's mere manuscript addition.

        Travels In The Island Of Iceland, During The Summer Of The Year MDCCCX

      Edinburgh: Printed for Archibald Constable & Company, Edinburgh, T.Payne, Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme & Brown. London, 1812., 1812. 4to. pp. xv, [2 leaves], 481. with half-title. 2 engraved maps (1 folding), 7 engraved plates (1 folding, 1 of music), 8 hand-coloured aquatints, & 15 engravings in the text. 4 folding tables. 19th century cloth-backed bds., rebacked with spine mounted, new lettering piece (some wear to covers, some foxing - fairly heavy on some of the engraved plates but the aquatints are quite clean). Second Edition. Mackenzie, a distinguished mineralogist and president of the physical class of the Royal Society, travelled to Iceland in 1810 in the company of Drs. Henry Holland and Richard Bright. The present work is the joint production of the three men, Mackenzie contributing the narrative of the voyage and travels, and the chapters on mineralogy, rural economy and commerce, Dr. Bright the sections on zoology and botany, and Dr. Holland the chapters on literature, diseases, and government, laws and religion. "Although the scientific portions of the book have long been superseded, it contains much information of permanent interest on the social and economic condition of Iceland." (DNB) The mineralogical collections brought back from the expedition were spoken of with great admiration by Sir Charles Lyell. The fine hand-coloured aquatints of scenery and costume by J.Clark and text engravings and plates by R.Scott and E.Mitchell are based on original sketches by the three travellers, the majority drawn by Mackenzie. This edition has been slightly revised and a short account of the Revolution of 1809 added to the Appendix. Abbey, Travel, 160. Prideaux pp. 232 & 343. Tooley 314.. Hardcover.

        THE BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER, AND ADMINISTRATION OF THE SACRAMENTS AND OTHER RITES AND CEREMONIES OF THE CHURCH, ACCORDING TO THE USE OF THE PROTESTANT EPISCOPAL CHURCH IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

      Philadelphia: Moses Thomas, 1812. Contemporary red morocco, gilt. Ownership stamping on cover, somewhat defaced, reading "E. Gerry." Minor foxing and soiling. Very good. Illustrated Book of Common Prayer for the Episcopal Church. This copy is notable for the ownership stamping on the cover: E. Gerry. Since, unfortunately, there is no inscription in the book, it is not possible to say definitively if this E. Gerry is Elbridge Gerry, the Founding Father; however, Elbridge Gerry was an Episcopalian and the time frame is correct (he died in 1814). As a man of stature, he surely would have owned a lovely copy of the prayer book, such as this. If this was indeed Elbridge Gerry's copy, it would have been used by him during his term as Vice President.

        [Nectarine] Homerton's White Nectarine; Ford's Black Nectarine; Italian Nectarine

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1812. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In excellent condition. Image size: 16 3/8 x 12 1/8 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.

        SKETCHES TOWARDS A HORTUS BOTANICUS AMERICANUS; OR, COLOURED PLATES (WITH A CATALOGUE AND CONCISE AND FAMILIAR DESCRIPTIONS OF MANY SPECIES) OF NEW AND VALUABLE PLANTS OF THE WEST INDIES AND NORTH AND SOUTH AMERICA

      London, 1812. Quarto. Antique-style half calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, leather label. Titlepage slightly soiled, minor age toning. Contemporary gift inscription on first page of preface. Old repaired tear in bottom margin of first page of preface, touching a few lines of text. Very good. This copy bears a contemporary gift inscription on the first page of the preface: "The gift of Warwick Pearson Esq. of Kirky, Lonsdale, Westmoreland to Tho. Warwick Syndman, Antigua." Titford was a Jamaica-born physician who lived on that island for many years, travelled extensively in the United States, and described himself as a corresponding member of the Society for the Encouragement of Arts. Otherwise little is known about him, excepting this work, for which he made all of the original drawings for the beautiful handcolored plates. Titford's only known publication, the volume was originally issued in six parts, and editions appear with titlepages dated 1811 and 1812. These factors may account in part for the variations in pagination between extant copies, supporting Ian MacPhail's comment in his "Titford's HORTUS BOTANICUS AMERICANUS..." that "the cataloguer who is faced with the bewildering collation of J.W. Titford: SKETCHES TOWARDS A HORTUS BOTANICUS AMERICANUS, London, 1811, is likely to throw up his hands in despair." An exquisite color plate botanical work, one of the earliest to depict American plant species, here with a fine contemporary Caribbean provenance.

S.164,16; Hagen u.a., Handbuch der Editionen S.314,1). - Exemplar der besseren Ausgabe auf festem holländ. Papier. Bd.3 deutlich, sonst vereinzelt leicht stockfleckig. Die Ausgabe wurde von JACOBI selbst begonnen und mit "Nachschreiben" und "Beylagen" versehen. Nachdem er während der Vorarbeiten zu Bd.4 gestorben war, übernahmen F.KÖPPEN und F.ROTH die weitere Herausgabe. Da eine kritische Gesamtausgabe bislang fehlt, muss diese "Ausgabe letzter Hand" als die gültige gelten, obwohl einige Auslassungen feststellbar sind. Mit einer besonders langen Einleitung hat JACOBI den vierten Band versehen, der seine im Zusammenhang mit dem Streit mit MENDELSSOHN erschienen Schriften und als dritte Abteilung den Briefwechsel mit J.G.HAMANN (Erstdruck) enthält. JACOBI hatte den seit 1785 geführten Briefwechsel früher F.KÖPPEN zwecks separater Veröffentlichung gegeben, dann jedoch gewünscht, er möge dem vierten Band quasi als Erläuterung beigegeben werden.
