        Elements of Chemical Philosophy, Part I., Vol. I. (all published).

      Davy's most comprehensive account of his discoveries and theories. Originally intended to be the first of several volumes, the remaining volumes were never completed. This work stands as the epitome of his scientific contributions.An early treatise on physical chemistry. Following an historical account of chemistry, Davy (1778-1829) discusses the laws of chemical change and how "undecompounded bodies" (elements) combine. This is followed by an account of the "powers and properties of matter" and of "radiant or ethereal matter." Subsequent chapters deal mainly with elemental substances, many of which Davy himself had first isolated -- chlorine, potassium, sodium, iodine, and others. The unpublished second part was to cover the compounds.Best remembered for his discoveries, his theoretical account of the role of electricity in chemistry is his most fundamental contribution. The exemplar of Romanticism in science (Coleridge claimed he could have been as good a poet as he was a scientist), Davy wrote exceptionally well, and this book is a testimony to the fact -- far from dry, it possesses the spark and imagination of the best scientific writing of its -- or any -- time.Fullmer, 1812.6, Duveen, pp. 160-161

        Temple of Flora, or Garden of the Botanist, Poet, Painter, and Philosopher

      London: Robert Thornton, 1812. Large quarto (in twos) measuring 376 x 303 mm., with a total of 29 handcoloured aquatint plates including the frontispiece, two uncoloured engraved plates and two engraved title-page leaves; a fine copy in contemporary full straight-grained crimson morocco, ornate gilt tooled borders and spine ornament. The greatest botanical book of the romantic era, and 'probably the most unconventional flower book ever published' (Tomasi). The Temple of Flora was the extraordinary invention of physician Robert Thornton (1768-1837) who ran a private practise and lectured on medical botany at two London hospitals. It is a visual tour-de-force, featuring individual flower portraits in moody and evocative settings. Arresting and irresistible, the 29 plates are 'the most overtly dramatic in the history of botany' (ODB).This is an example of the so-called "Lottery edition", produced by Thornton in 1812 as one of the series of prizes in the lottery designed to save him from bankruptcy. It follows the earlier large folio version which began publishing in parts in 1799 under the title New Illustration of the Sexual System of Linnaeus. The ambitious project was aptly renamed Temple of Flora in 1804. The first edition was very large: this subsequent edition, which contains an additional plate (the "Artichoke Protea"), appeared as a more manageable large quarto (in fact technically made up as a folio) with engraved title pages dated 1812. The stupendous price of 20 guineas when the series of plates with text was first offered for sale reflected the exorbitant cost of production. Each flower portrait began as an oil painting commissioned from leading artists of the era; the paintings were in due course rendered as magnificent aquatints by Stadler and Sutherland. Although the retinue of artists included great names such as John Russell and Sir William Beechey, Thornton favoured the work of professional botanical illustrators Peter Henderson and Philip Reinagle who contributed the majority of images to the Temple of Flora. Not surprisingly, Thornton's ambitious and eccentric publishing project destroyed him financially. Not even the public lottery ordained by Act of Parliament, wherein the winner claimed the suite of original artworks, could save him from ruin. in the lottery the first prize was original artworks, the second enhanced sets of the first edition; the third series of prizes was 200 sets of ocloured plates, whiel the fourth prize was this quarto edition. The text is eminently curious to modern sensibilities, combining scientific botany with a seemingly disparate range of emotional, spiritual and political themes, all generously interspersed with poetry from ancient and contemporary sources. For Thornton, flowers manifested not only divine perfection but represented an ideal of earthly love and purity which could - and should - be emulated in human affairs. It was a universalising vision of material abundance derived from the plants of the earth and trade in their products, ultimately intended to eclipse human strife and conflict. The dream of peace through botanical curiosity is remarkably idealistic given Thornton's publishing career was overshadowed by the Napoleonic wars in Europe. Great Flower Books, 77; Nissen, 1955; Tomasi, An Oak Spring Flora, 93.

        Wissenschaft der Logik. Erster Band. Die objective Logik.

      Johan Leonard Schrag, Nurnberg/ Nuremberg, 1812 - First Edition. Very good indeed in its original pleasing contemporary binding. Fine gilt decoration on leather spine with raised red title label. Marbled boards. Yellow edges with faint initials. Light stains on inside boards and endpapers, text pages all clean. Composition is as follows. Title page. Vorrede X pages. Inhaltsanzeige and Einleitung XXVIII pages. Text 334 pages. I can send further images on request. The first volume of Hegel's second major work was first published on its own in 1812. The second volume only came out in 1813, the following year.This is thus the first book in Hegel's trilogy on objective logic. Because Hegel considered this series as his most important work, and continually revised it over his lifetime, the first editions in their original states are extremely difficult to obtain. The exposition of the Hegelian dialectic is one of the key developments in philosophy, and these books are arguably among the most important and desirable in any collection of philosophy books in first edition.

        A week after his victory over the Russians at the Battle of Vitebsk, Napoleon bestows a baronetcy

      Vitebsk, August 5, 1812. 23.5" x 16.25". "Partly-printed Document Signed, ""Napol,"" as Emperor of France, 1 page on vellum, 23.5"" x 16.25"", Vitebsk, August 5, 1812 appointing Nicolas Michel Flosse as a Baron of the Empire. The elaborate document, which features an engraved eagle cleverly forming the first letter of ""Napoleon"" in the heading of the document is adorned at the left with hand-painted depiction of the crest of the newly-minted title. Toned at upper right comer, some minor conservation work to vellum and text, else fine condition with a bold signature. After the coup of 18th Brumaire (November 9, 1799,) First Consul Napoleon faced threats to his rule form both Jacobins and royalists. To ensure the continuity of his rule, he organized a plebiscite that elected him Emperor of the French in 1800. As a hereditary ruler, a mere assassination would not necessarily bring about a restoration of the ancien régime, as he would have an heir to claim the throne. Once secure as Emperor, Napoleon established his own order of nobility that would allow him to cement his power throughout the French Empire. His authority to do so was established by a constitutional decree in 1808 which gave him (as noted in the present document) ""the right to give the titles that we would think convenient to those among our subjects who distinguished themselves for services rendered to the State."" Prominent figures who cooperated with Napoleon were rewarded with new titles of nobility. Little is known about the recipient save for that the Flosse family became prominent in Lorraine in the mid eighteenth century, and that Nicolas Michel Flosse was also a colonel in the French Army. Documents concerning Napoleon's awards of nobility are rare. As the political winds shifted dramatically within a few years of the execution of the present document, many who were honored to receive these titles found themselves in an uncomfortable position and would have had good reason to see these documents destroyed."

        A vindication of Mr. Lancaster's system of education from the aspersions of Professor Marsh, the Quarterly, British, and Anti-Jacobin Reviews, &c. &c. By a Member of the Royal Institution. ..... The second edition

      London: printed at the Royal Free School Press, Borough Road, Southwark, by J. Lancaster: published by Longman and Co. and Gale and Curtis; and J. Simpson. 1812. 8vo., (4) + 112pp., burn mark in lower blank margin of 3 or 4 leaves and resultant hole in one margin, not near printed surface, well bound in good library cloth, spine lettered gilt, university 'withdrawn' stamp on endpaper, a good, uncut, copy. McGarry (Joseph Lancaster: a bibliographical account of his life and system of teaching,> 1966) C.46. This was a defence of Joseph Lancaster's system of education, in comparison with that of Andrew Bell, against attacks by Herbert Marsh and others. First published as a series of twelve letters in The Statesman> under the signature 'Pythias'. It was printed by Lancaster himself (or by his pupils) on his own press at the Borough Road School. Joseph Fox (1775-1816) himself was a dental surgeon and philanthropist whose final years were dominated by his work for the organized education of poor children. It was Fox who helped save the Society from bankruptcy in 1808, providing £2000 of his own money to help Lancaster settle debts, and became the first secretary of the newly created board of trustees. He later (in 1814) became associated with Robert Owen's experiments at New Lanark. The 'Professor Marsh' referred to by Fox was Herbert Marsh (1757-1839), Lady Margaret professor of divinity at Cambridge, who had published two pro-Bell pamphlets in 1811.

        An Inquiry Into The Nature And Causes of The Wealth of Nations With A Life of the Author Also: A View of the Doctrine of Smith compared with that of the French Economists

      London: Cadell, Davies, et al., 1812., 1812. New Edition. Three vols. Octavo. Bound in original polished calf boards, recent respine to style with three raised bands and twin labels, edges speckled. Some browning to first and final leaves eles internally clean, some acceptable marking to boards. An elegant set. Smith, one of the pillars of the Scottish Enlightenment, was a moral philosopher in addition to being an economist. In The Wealth of Nations, Smith laid the intellectual foundations for a liberal, free-market society, and in so doing revolutionized the understanding of how societies, governments, and markets interact. However, he always insisted, from "The Theory of Moral Sentiments" onwards, that the 'invisible hand of the market' would regulate capitalist impulses and channel excessive behaviour into productive and beneficent projects. The Wealth of Nations further addresses questions of sovereignty of colonies, the origins of coinage, and the concept of credit, all of which would have profound influence on the germinating United States of America, which declared independence in July 1776, the same year that Smith's work was published. A truly beautiful copy of the single most important work in economic history. Provenence: ownership signature 'Charles Newbury' to each pastedown.

        A Narrative of the Principal Events of the Campaigns of 1809, 1810, & 1811,

      London: Printed for P. Martin,, 1812. in Spain and Portugal; interspersed with Remarks on Local Scenery and Manners, in a Series of Letters. By … Adjutant Third Foot Guards Octavo (213 ×128 mm) Twentieth-century brown half morocco, terracotta sand-grain cloth, title gilt to the spine, small floral tools to compartments, flag of the Booth shipping line to the upper board, edges sprinkled red. Folding map frontispiece. A little rubbed, map slightly crumpled and with some splitting at the lower edge, lightly browned, the prelims perhaps a little more so, but overall a very good copy. First edition, uncommon with just 6 locations on Copac. Early, and highly valuable, eyewitness to the Peninsular War. Stothert's epistolary account covers the period from the embarkation of his regiment at Spithead in March 1809 through to the end of 1811. He returned to England in January 1812. Born in Dumfries in 1780, Stothert became an ensign in the Third Foot Guards in October 1805, Adjutant August 1809, Lieutetant and Captain, April 1811. He here recounts his experiences in the campaigns in north Portugal; the battle of Talavera; the siege and storming of Ciudad Roderigo; the battle of Busaco; the retreat to the lines of Torres Vedras; the battle of Fuentes d'Onoro; the battle of Albuera; and the siege of Badajoz. In March 1814 he was severely wounded in the siege of Bergen op Zoom, and he died at Waterloo where he was serving as Byng's Major of Brigade. In 1899 his remains were moved from the Quartier-Léopold cemetery to the crypt of the British Waterloo Campaign Monument at Evere, Brussels. The binding on this copy probably dates to around 1903 when the Booth Line began services to Lisbon.

        The War [being a faithful record of the transactions of the war between the United States of America and their territories, and the United kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and the dependencies thereof; declared on the eighteenth ... (Truncated)

      S. Woodworth & Co., 1812-1813, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good, First editionFull Book Title: The War [being a faithful record of the transactions of the war between the United States of America and their territories, and the United kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and the dependencies thereof; declared on the eighteenth day of June, 1812]A quite scarce to rare bound volume containing the first edition, first printing of the first fifty-two issues of "The War", being a faithful record of the transactions of the war between the United States of America and their territories, and the United kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and the dependencies thereof; declared on the eighteenth day of June, 1812, compiled, edited, and published by American author, literary journalist, playwright, librettist, and poet Samuel Woodworth.Woodworth established this weekly in order to report to the American people the principal events related to the War of 1812. The issues contain relevant and interesting information including Congressional actions, information on British and American Naval Forces, surrenders, the number and description of guns mounted on vessels, relevant Statements, Addresses, and the like. Beginning with an Index, this quite scarce Volume contains the entire first year of newspaper beginning with the first Issue dated June 27, 1812 and ending with Issue 52 dated June 15, 1813, being, in addition to the two-page Index, a total of 218 pages of text. In Very Good condition, the volume itself is rather worn, and the individual issues contained within show some tide marks and wear, primarily to the Index (at the front), the first three issues, and the 1813 issues, fold lines, foxing, and marginal tears. Issue 9 shows heavy foxing but remains quite legible, the leaf containing pp 173/174 shows loss to the bottom including loss of some text, leaf 179/180 shows a small center tear with some loss of text, and leaf 183/184 shows a horizontal tear across the center with no loss of text. While Woodworth perhaps is best known for his Song/Poem "The Bucket", a work more commonly known as "The Old Oaken Bucket", a song popular in anthologies and collections for over 100 years and the origin of the Old Oaken Bucket Trophy given annually to the winner of the Indiana/Purdue football game, "The War" was a notable contribution to history providing, as Woodworth intended, both a news source for those seeking current information about the War of 1812 and a history of the War for future generations. Copies of individual issues are remarkably uncommon to the market and volumes containing the entire first year of the publication are as scarce as hen's teeth. As of the time of this listing, auction records show a 2015 auction sale of an individual issue of the newspaper (Vol. 1, No. 12) at $162.50.Most notably, such auction records show no complete set of the first year of "The War" coming to auction since 1920. A Very Good copy of a NOTABLE AND EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE TO RARE RECORD OF THE WAR OF 1812. RARE INDEED.

        Free trade to India. Letters addressed to the merchants and inhabitants of the town of Liverpool, concerning a free trade to the East Indies. By a Member of Parliament.* (Written originally for, and published in, the Liverpool Mercury)

      Liverpool, printed and sold by E. Smith and Co. 1812. 8vo., 32pp., recent marbled boards lettered on spine. A very good copy. First edition: very rare. Goldsmiths 20498. Kress B.5986. Other copies located only at Newcastle Un. + Northwestern Un. + Un. of California (Davis). Not in BL. An interesting paper, published in the year when the East India Company was applying to renew its charter (which, somewhat controversially it did in 1813, achieving a further 20-year trading privilege). The present paper was evidently written on behalf the commercial interests of Liverpool in protest at what he called 'that extraordinary anomaly in the history of our country'. The 'anomaly' is bitterly described as 'an exclusive trade to a great portion of the world, still remaining in the hands of a corporation such as the East India Company: - that is to say, a right of trading to India, China, and the Indian seas, possessed by that collection of men, women, and children, who happen, for the time being, to be proprietors of India stock, and who have nothing to do with trade; to the exclusion of that body in this country, whose energies, exertions, and fortunes are devoted to commerce'. [p.3]. * It seems highly likely that the author was Thomas Creevey (1768-1838) who, although already M.P. for Thetford, had the strongest possible connexions with the Liverpool trading lobby. He was strongly opposed to the East India Co.'s monopoly and devoted himself to opposing the East India Company bill at every stage in June and July 1812. A native of Liverpool (his father had captained a Liverpool registered slaver), he defended the town's petition against restrictions on East India trade and was even invited by William Roscoe to stand for Liverpool at the next election (i.e. October 1812). With Thetford solidly in his pocket, Creevey had a go at Liverpool, but came fourth in the poll behind Canning, Gascoyne and Brougham.

Very good to fine condition overall. 7 tomos in 8 parts (tomo VI in 2 parts, each with its own title page and pagination), bound in 2 volumes. ---- Greatly expanded version of this classic work on mercantile law, the first on the subject in Portuguese. This definitive form, which remained in use throughout the nineteenth century, first appeared in 1801-1803. The dates of the tomos in this collection are, respectively, 1806, 1812, 1801, 1811, 1811, 1812 (for both parts), and 1811.Although the table of contents of the first edition, Lisbon 1798 (a single quarto volume of 450-odd pages), lists eight sections, it only included the first section, on maritime insurance, and an appendix. The text of that volume is contained in tomo I of this edition. The other six tomos of the expanded edition cover such topics as maritime exchange, damages to ships, letters of trade or of exchange, maritime contracts, administration and regulations of harbors and customs, courts of maritime affairs, and political economy. These tomos, reprinted separately at various dates until 1868, were a legal-maritime best seller and a bibliographical nightmare. In 1874 Candido Mendes de Almeida published an edition of the complete work in two volumes, preceded by a long introduction, a biography and a bibliography of the author.Born at Bahia in 1756, José da Silva Lisboa, a devoted follower of Adam Smith and Ricardo, was the most distinguished Brazilian economist of his time. He was also one of the leading Brazilian statesmen, beginning the day in March 1808 when he advised D. João VI, then Prince Regent, to open Brazilian ports to the commerce of all friendly nations. In the 1820's he served as deputy to the 1822 Constituent Assembly, and in 1825 was elected Senator. Cayrú was an ardent advocate of independence and a supporter of liberal monarchy. He became a member of the American Philosophical Society in 1825.---- Kress S.6168: citing a copy at MH-L; cf. S.6167: another edition, Lisbon 1815-1819, also at MH-L. Cf.

        Histoire curieuse et amusante des singes, pour faire connaitre l'instinct merveilleux, les ruses, les moeurs et les malices de ces animaux. Ouvrage dans lequel on trouve une aventure galante très-singulière et presque romanesque

      Paris: Lemarchand Libraire. Première Édition.. Tres rare ! Bon exemplaire malgré son État d'usage sur tranche et dos , couverture et intérieur sur papier d'époque. Avec jaquette protective en plastique transparente. Texte avec rousseurs éparses reste très lisible.. Première Édition. Paris, Lemarchand Libraire, 1812. 14 x 9 cm. 151 pages. Broché. / Softcover. Tres rare ! Bon exemplaire malgré son État d'usage sur tranche et dos , couverture et intérieur sur papier d'époque. Avec jaquette protective en plastique transparente. Texte avec rousseurs éparses reste très lisible. Pierre-Jean-Baptiste Nougaret, né le 16 décembre 1742 à La Rochelle et mort le 27 juin 1823 à Paris, est un homme de lettres français. Polygraphe, il est l'auteur de plus de cent quarante volumes portant sur les sujets les plus divers et dans tous les genres : poésies sérieuses et bouffonnes, drames, parodies, compilations historiques, écrits politiques, recueils d'anas, romans épistolaires, romans-mémoires. Il est surtout renommé pour ses démêlés avec Nicolas Edme Restif de La Bretonne, qu'il a rencontré à son arrivée à Paris en 1766. Né le 17 décembre 1742 à La Rochelle, baptisé le lendemain en l'église Saint-Jean du Perrot (dont il ne reste aujourd'hui que le clocher), il est le fils aîné de Pierre Nogaret, négociant originaire de Caux installé à La Rochelle depuis trois ans, et de Marie-Louise Bourgeois, fille d'un procureur au siège présidial de cette ville, mariés dans la même église le 14 novembre 17411,2. Après avoir fait jouer, au théâtre de Toulouse, avec quelque succès, une petite comédie en un acte et en vers intitulée l?'Incertain (1760), parodie de Zulica, imitée de l'Irrésolu de Destouches, Nougaret fait un bref séjour à Lyon, avant de s'établir à Paris, où il publie quelques pièces de vers2, en particulier un supplément à la Pucelle de Voltaire (1763), qui lui vaut quelques mois de prison. Encouragé par Voltaire, à qui il adresse une héroïde intitulée l?'Ombre de Calas (Paris, 1765, in-8°), il se met à écrire plus de cent ouvrages, qui ne se distinguent pas plus par le soin du style que par la décence ou la vérité historique. À Paris, il se marie avec Angélique Thomin, fille de Marc Thomin, « ingénieur en optique de la Reine » demeurant dans le Cloître-Saint-Benoît, auteur d'une Instruction sur l'usage des lunettes ou conserves (1746) et d'un Traité d'optique mécanique (1749), né à Toury en 1707 et mort à Paris le 21 décembre 1752 à l'âge de quarante-cinq ans3, avec laquelle il a deux filles. L'aînée, Charlotte-Éléonore-Césarine, voit le jour à Paris le 29 novembre 1768 ; elle est baptisée le lendemain à Saint-Séverin. Sous la Révolution, il est employé dans diverses administrations puis devient agent du comité de sûreté générale en province. En août 1792, il est envoyé à Grenoble avec Pierre Laligant, dit Morillon, qui a dénoncé une conspiration5,6. Chef du bureau de surveillance à la Commune de Paris, il est renvoyé sur dénonciation de Pache et de Chaumette. Le 4 septembre 1795, la Convention nationale lui octroie 2 000 livres dans le cadre d'un décret en faveur des gens de lettres. Il meurt le 27 juin 1823 à Paris, au no 4 de la rue d'Assas, à l'âge de quatre-vingts ans et six mois. (Wikipedia)

Verso 2 Skizzen. Provenienz: Sammlung R.Ph. Goldschmidt, Berlin, Lugt 2926; Graphisches Kabinett, München, bis 12.02.1937, dort erworben von Direktor Schütze, München; Süddeutsche Privatsammlung. Vergleichsliteratur: R. Freitag-Stadler, Johann Adam Klein 1792-1875. Zeichnungen und Aquarelle. Nürnberg 1975, Nrn. 37-57. Unter diesen 1812 bzw. um 1812 entstandenen Zeichnungen befinden sich zwei, Nr. 37 und 45, die in Wien, ebenfalls im Mai, nämlich am 8. bzw. 22 Mai 1812 datiert sind.. Bereits als Achtjähriger erhielt Klein Zeichenunterricht durch den Maler G.C. II. von Bemmel (1765-1811). 1802 war G.P. Zwinger (1779-1819) an der Nürnberger Zeichenschule sein Lehrer. 1805-1811 war er Lehrling bei dem Maler, Zeichner und Kupferstecher A. Gabler (1762-1834). Ab 1811 Studium an der Kunstakademie in Wien. 1814 und 1816 folgten Reisen nach Ungarn und 1815 eine Studienreise an Main und Rhein. 1818 hielt er sich in München auf, wo er mit P. von Hess (1792-1871) und M.J. Wagenbauer (1775-1829) verkehrte. 1819 ging er in seine Heimatstadt zurück. Von dort aus unternahm er mit seinen Freunden J.C. Erhard (1795-1822), den Brüdern F.P. (1779-1840) und H. Reinhold (1788-1825) sowie E. Welker (1788-1857) eine Reise ins Salzkammergut. Von Ende 1819 bis August 1821 weilte Klein in Italien, kehrte dann aber nach Nürnberg zurück. 1833 wurde er zum Mitglied der Berliner Kunstakademie ernannt. 1839 zog er nach München, wo er bis zu seinem Tode leben sollte. 1848 begann ein Augenleiden, was in den nächsten Jahren zu einer zunehmenden Beeinträchtigung des Sehvermögens führen und schließlich ab 1871 das Arbeiten unmöglich machen sollte. Klein ist ein charakteristischer Vertreter der Biedermeierzeit. Sein Hauptgebiet war die Genremalerei. Einflüsse der holländischen Maler und Radierer K. Dujardin (1622-1678) und A. van de Velde (1636-1672) sowie des Tiermalers J.H. Roos (1631-1685) sind zu beobachten, die er jedoch gut umzusetzen wußte. Darüber hinaus ließ er sich von Wagenbauer, Hess und W. von Kobell (1766-1853) anregen.

        The War [being a faithful record of the transactions of the war between the United States of America and their territories, and the United kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and the dependencies thereof; declared on the eighteenth day of June, 1812]

      New York: S. Woodworth & Co., 1812-1813. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A quite scarce to rare bound volume containing the first edition, first printing of the first fifty-two issues of "The War", being a faithful record of the transactions of the war between the United States of America and their territories, and the United kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, and the dependencies thereof; declared on the eighteenth day of June, 1812, compiled, edited, and published by American author, literary journalist, playwright, librettist, and poet Samuel Woodworth. Woodworth established this weekly in order to report to the American people the principal events related to the War of 1812. The issues contain relevant and interesting information including Congressional actions, information on British and American Naval Forces, surrenders, the number and description of guns mounted on vessels, relevant Statements, Addresses, and the like. Beginning with an Index, this quite scarce Volume contains the entire first year of newspaper beginning with the first Issue dated June 27, 1812 and ending with Issue 52 dated June 15, 1813, being, in addition to the two-page Index, a total of 218 pages of text. In Very Good condition, the volume itself is rather worn, and the individual issues contained within show some tide marks and wear, primarily to the Index (at the front), the first three issues, and the 1813 issues, fold lines, foxing, and marginal tears. Issue 9 shows heavy foxing but remains quite legible, the leaf containing pp 173/174 shows loss to the bottom including loss of some text, leaf 179/180 shows a small center tear with some loss of text, and leaf 183/184 shows a horizontal tear across the center with no loss of text. While Woodworth perhaps is best known for his Song/Poem "The Bucket", a work more commonly known as "The Old Oaken Bucket", a song popular in anthologies and collections for over 100 years and the origin of the Old Oaken Bucket Trophy given annually to the winner of the Indiana/Purdue football game, "The War" was a notable contribution to history providing, as Woodworth intended, both a news source for those seeking current information about the War of 1812 and a history of the War for future generations. Copies of individual issues are remarkably uncommon to the market and volumes containing the entire first year of the publication are as scarce as hen's teeth. As of the time of this listing, auction records show a 2015 auction sale of an individual issue of the newspaper (Vol. 1, No. 12) at $162.50. Most notably, such auction records show no complete set of the first year of "The War" coming to auction since 1920. A Very Good copy of a NOTABLE AND EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE TO RARE RECORD OF THE WAR OF 1812. RARE INDEED.

        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.
