      C. F. Peters [PN 1126], Leipzig 1813 - 2 volumes. Oblong folio. Vol. 1: Black cloth-backed boards. 1f. (recto title, verso cast list in Italian and German), 3-87, [i] (blank) pp. Vol. 2: Dark brown calf-backed marbled boards with red and black morocco title label gilt to upper. 1f.

Text in Italian and German.Yellow label with "Müller's Musikalien-Leih-Bibliothek. 4253." laid down to upper board of Vol. I; Müller's handstamp and name in a contemporary hand to blank lower margin of title. Binding slightly worn, rubbed, and bumped; minor dampstaining to upper portion of Vol. 2; hinges splitting. Minor internal wear and soiling; some foxing; Vol. 2 slightly dampstained at blank upper margins of first ten leaves. First German edition (possible First Edition). Eitner VII, p. 278. OCLC no. 67975974, 23493298. IMSLP (plate numbers for Peters).Agnese, to a libretto by Luigi Buonavoglia after Filippo Casari, was first performed in Parma at the Villa Scotti, Teatro Ponte d'Attaro, in October 1809."Agnese is Paer's last opera semiseria and the one in which comic and serious elements are most skilfully integrated. Its situations have been perceived as anticipating those of such intense psychological melodrammi as Donizetti's Lucia di Lammermoor and Verdi's I masnadieri which became common after 1830; other authorities have noted a similarity in Donizetti's Il furioso all'isola di San Domingo, as both there and in Agnese the mad scene involves the participation of a 'buffo' - clearly a throwback to the 18th century when male dementia was regarded as entertaining rather than tragic." Scott L. Balthazar in Grove Music Online. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        NARRATIVE, OF A FIVE YEARS' EXPEDITION, AGAINST THE REVOLTED NEGROES OF SURINAM, IN GUIANA, ON THE WILD COAST OF SOUTH AMERICA.

      J. Johnson, London 1813 - Two quarto (8-1/2" x 10-1/2") volumes bound in early calf-backed marbled boards with calf corners, contrasting gilt-lettered morocco spine labels, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, rebacked.

Sabin (91075) called this "one of the richest contemporary accounts of a plantation society in the Americas." According to the DNB, Stedman's narrative is "one of the most vivid indictments of slavery that have been penned." Stedman also depicts the social and natural history of the area in detail, and many of the engravings illuminate his writings on these subjects. Blake's work, among the finest that he did for hire, are primarily powerful portraits of slaves. Occasional light, small stain but very clean overall.

        Robert Fulton, inventor of the world's first successful commercial steamboat, demonstrates his gifted mind through an incredibly rare signed portrait sketch

      n.p., 1813. 7" x 8". "A 7"" x 8"" sketch, captioned ""Wm. McIvers"", a heavy-set fellow in a double-breasted coat. Signed, ""R F"" on the bottom right edge of the leaf and dated ""1813"" underneath the signature.Born in Pennsylvania, Robert Fulton was regarded as the mastermind who created the world's first successful commercial steamboat named Clermont. As an engineer and inventor, Fulton was constantly sketching, planning, and blueprinting new ideas with pen and paper. He had even famously sketched the first practical submarine called ""Nautilus"" as he was commissioned by Napoleon Bonaparte to do so. Aside from being known for modernizing steamship technology, Fulton had other hobbies, art being one of those hobbies.This sketch comes from a very rare archive of Fulton sketches, similar ones have sold at auction for over $4300."

        Catalogues of the birds, shells, and some of the more rare plants, of Dorsetshire. From the new and enlarged edition of Mr. Hutchins's history of that county . With additions; and a brief memoir of the author

      Printed by and for J. Nichols, Son, and Bentley, [London 1813 - (19 1/2 x 12 inches). Text in two columns. iv, 110pp. Engraved portrait, 24 engraved plates on 13 sheets. Uncut. Some foxing. Later cloth-backed grey paper boards. Large-paper issue of the first illustrated edition of a rare catalogue of British birds, plants and shells. Richard Pulteney received his doctorate in medicine from the University of Edinburgh in 1764, before serving as the personal physician to the Earl of Bath. Following the Earl's death, he resided and practiced in Blandford, Dorset. Besides membership in a host of medical societies, Pulteney was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society, as well as a Fellow of the Linnean Society. Indeed, he was an early promoter of Linnaean taxonomy, and authored the first English biography of Linnaeus in 1781. His cabinet of specimens, noted particularly for its shells, was donated to the Linnean Society following his death in 1801. The first edition of 1799 was privately-published by Pulteney with few copies printed. An inscription in an extant copy by the editor of this new edition reveals that copies of the first edition were further destroyed by fire: "The first Impression of Dr. Pulteney's Catalogues was printed in 1801 [i.e. 1799], but never published, the whole having been destroyed by the fire, at Mr. Nichols's printing office [in 1808]. I have been enabled to make considerable additions in this second impression, from communication by various scientific friends, and from my own obervations." Rackett's revised edition was the first to be illustrated, containing a portrait of Pulteney, a plate depicting 17 shells titled Melbury Fossils (engraved by J. Cary after Mary Foster), and 23 engraved plates of shells on 12 sheets. The plates numbered I-XXIII are new engravings of those by De Costa in his Historia Naturalis Testaeorum Britanniae, with several additions, depicting over 200 species. The present copy is a very rare large-paper issue, printed on wove paper (the 1799 and regular issue of 1813 being on laid paper), with a variant title without imprint.

        Dictionnaire chinois, francais et latin, publie d'apres l'ordre de sa Majeste l'Empereur et Roi Napoleon le Grand

      First edition. Napoleon Bonaparte commissioned Guignes' dictionary in 1808; this monumental production includes thousands of Chinese characters (actually carved in the 18th century) and was printed on heavy laid paper. The dictionary was ground breaking and demonstrated a growing interest on China; it was largely an editing of the compilation made by Franciscan missionary in China Basilio de Glemona Brollo (1648 - 1704), in the 17th century; this lack of originality gained Guignes strong criticism at the time. However, the dictionary is still regarded as one of the best ever made, also, it is of considerable artistic beauty. Guignes (1759 - 1845) lived in China for 17 years and performed as translator for the Dutch Ambassador at the Qianlong Emperor's court from 1794-1795, he was also author of another important work on China "Voyages a Peking, Manille et L'Ile de France". Despite of the unwelcoming reception of his dictionary, he is recognized as a famed Sinologist. Provenance: Library of the Duc de Luynes, Chateau de Dampierre. Cordier, 1589. Brunet, II, 568.

        Manuscript Minute Book of the "Engineers of the Northern Liberty Fire Engine No. 1", Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Dated 1813 -1844

      Folio, 261 manuscript pages, bound in quarter leather, marbled boards, red morocco label on front board reads "Minutes of the Engineers of the Northern Liberty Fire Engine No. 1". Spine leather chipped, pieces missing, rear board loose, inner hinge of front board starting as well, boards worn at edges, corners worn through, scuffed and rubbed, a couple of leaves loose, written in ink, in a legible hand, entries dated from March 3, 1813 to January 29,1844.Front inside board has the contemporary printed book plate of James D. Pratt, the first Secretary of the Engineers of the Northern Liberty Fire Engine No. 1. The rear inside board has affixed to it a "Permit to the Northern Liberty Fire Company, of the Incorporated District of the Northern Liberties" to open "Fire-Plugs within the Incorporated District of the Northern Liberties, for the purpose of cleansing your Fire Apparatus." The permit is signed by the "Superintendent of the Watering Committee of the Northern Liberties" and dated "April 1st, 1831."This ledger records in highly detailed minutes the first thirty plus years of this Philadelphia fire hose company, which was founded when the District of the Northern Liberties was still a self-governing district, within Philadelphia County. In 1854, the entire county of Philadelphia was consolidated into the city within Philadelphia's current boundaries. The volume includes an initial list of Engineers at the beginning of the ledger, as well as the periodic updates as members joined, left, or died off. Minutes include reports of committees, the annual elections, fines assessed, and starting in 1834, the fires that the company responded to. The initial organizational meeting of the company was held on March 3rd, 1816, at which the members, chose officers, created committees for storing ladders, procuring buckets, drawing up "by-laws for the government of the Company" and to "affix Fines & duties for the different committees." A committee was created to "fix on a suitable Badge to be worn by the Members at a Fire." At the very next meeting, held on March 17th, 1816, the by-laws were submitted, which laid out the plans for the organization and running of the hose company. Additionally agreed upon were the various fines and fees that would be incurred for such infractions as: absence from a meeting - 25 cents; absence of a roll call - 12 ½ cents; refusing to do duty when met - 50 cents; refusing to assist home with engine - 50 cents; refusal to obey the command of lead engineer at a Fire - 50 cents; amongst other items. Most of the founders of this fire hose company lived in the southeast corner of the District of the Northern Liberties bounded by today's Delaware River on the east to Second Street on the west, from Green Street at the north, to Callowhill Street on the south. Beginning at a meeting of 3 May 1834, the Northern Liberty Fire Company No. 1's secretary started to list in the minutes, the number of fires the company either fought or set out to fight. The details are provided whether they participated or not. In the first report of 3 May 1834 there were eleven fires reported as follows:"The first Fire was in Gillises Alley on the 21st March it proved to be two Frames Houses in Gillises Alley the alley running northwest from South Street between 5th and 6th St. loss estimated at $500.00,. the apparatus not in service.John Simpson, EngineerThe second Fire was in Second Street above Walnut the Merchants Coffee House.

        Memoire sur l'oesophage

      Paris, 1813. 1st edition. Mémoire sur l'oesophage. Lu ŕ l'Institut de France, le 11 octobre 1813. 8vo. 11pp. [Paris:] Plassan, 1813. 215 x 137 mm. Unbound. Minor soiling, spine partly split, but very good. Probably the First Separate Edition of Magendie's memoir on the esophagus published in the Procčs-verbaux de l'Académie des sciences 5 (1813). "Magendie attempted to show the falsity of the current belief that the esophagus was a uniform muscular tube . . . The new facts which he brought forward were that while the upper half of this organ appeared to contract after the manner of voluntary muscle, the lower half exhibited peristaltic movements under control of the vagus nerve" (Olmsted, p. 54). Olmsted does not cite this separate edition in his bibliography of Magendie's works.

        Memoire sur la deglutition de l'air atmospherique. Offprint

      Paris, 1813. Mémoire sur la déglutition de l'air atmosphérique. Lu ŕ l'Institut, le 25 octobre 1813. 8vo. 12pp. [Paris:] Migneret, n.d. Unbound. 213 x 137 mm. Minor foxing and toning but very good. Probably the First Separate Edition. Olmsted does not record this work, citing only Magendie's additional notes on swallowing air published in 1815. This paper forms part of Magendie's study of the mechanics of vomiting: "He was correct in assuming the essential passivity of the stomach during vomiting and the swallowing of air as its inevitable accompaniment" (Olmsted, p. 55).

        THE BIBLE. Ninth Edition.

      Rutland [Vt.]: Printed by Fay & Davison, [ca. 1813]. - 286pp. Miniature Bible, 53mm, leaves gathered in twelves. Contemporary half sheep over marbled boards, spine gilt. Front and rear boards detached, front and rear free endpapers detached, text block solid. Early 20th-century gift inscription on front free endpaper. Illustrated throughout with full-page wood engravings. Light tanning and occasional foxing. A very good copy. In a linen clamshell box, spine gilt. An uncommon edition of a miniature Bible, often called a thumb Bible due to its diminutive size. This epitome of the Bible in verse is based on John Taylor's VERBUM SEMPITERNUM, first published in England in the 17th century and in America circa 1760. The "ninth edition" noted on the titlepage notwithstanding, Welch records fourteen earlier American editions in this format. In addition to reprinting Taylor's letter in verse to the reader ("With care and pains out of the sacred book / This little abstract I for thee have took."), the editors also include a dedication to George Washington ("Most hopeful George into tiny hands we give / The sum of that which makes us ever live."), first published in the "eighth edition" circa 1796. An engaging religious work published for children, in remarkably good condition considering the work's intended audience. WELCH 1293.15. McCORISON 1537. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 27930. OCLC 20788289.

        New South Wales Pocket Almanack, for the year of Our Lord 1814... Published under the sanction and patronage of His Excellency the Governor and Commander in Chief

      Sydney: George Howe, 1813. Paper evenly browning, the spine partly defective; old paper strengthening to inner joints; generally a very good unsophisticated copy in original condition.. Duodecimo; stab-sewn in the original quarter red roan and stiff marbled wrappers, as issued; quarter morocco case. First edition: a superb copy of a very rare Australian imprint in desirable original condition. This copy has an outstanding provenance, having originally belonged to the newspaper editor Ralph Mansfield, signed by him on the title-page and the front endpaper. Mansfield was closely associated with the Almanack's publisher, George Howe (1769-1821). Printer, editor, publisher and poet, Howe was Australia's first printer, sometimes described as Sydney's Caxton. In 1802 he was appointed Government Printer and that same year issued the first book printed in Australia, "New South Wales General Standing Orders" comprising Government and General Orders issued between 1791 and 1802. On 5 March 1803 he began the publication of the first newspaper, the "Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser", of which Mansfield later joined him as joint editor. Ralph Mansfield, Methodist missionary as well as newspaper editor, was an important figure in the literary community of the early colony, first in Tasmania and from 1825 in Sydney. He became joint editor with Howe of the "Sydney Gazette" on 1 January 1829. In the editorial for that day he declared that his policy would be neither directed against the established church nor exclusively religious, as he believed newspapers were not the place for theological debate, and that his political principles would be like those of Howe: attachment to the cause of government. A month later Robert Howe was drowned and Mansfield became sole editor.Howe's 1814 Almanack is the longest and the most detailed of all the early almanacs, designed as the last of the elaborate issues Howe had been publishing since 1806. It includes a substantial compendium of information about the colony and its history in the preceding quarter century. After 1814 this additional historical information was excluded. All Howe almanacs before the 1820s are of great rarity. Provenance: Ralph Mansfield (1799-1880, newspaper editor); private collection (Sydney).

        Pedestrianism; or an Account of the Celebrated Performances of Celebrated Pedestrians During the Last and Present Century; with a Full Narrative of Captain Barclay’s Public and Private Marches; and an Essay on Training

      Printed by D. Chambers & Co., Aberdeen 1813 - Copper engraved frontispiece, 8vo 8 ¼ x 5 ¼ 286 pp. 19th century ¾ gilt-ruled straight-grained morocco & marbled boards, spine ruled & lettered in gilt, raised bands. Some rubbing to joints and extremities; top hinge weak, light offset to title from frontispiece, partially eradicated ink signature at top of frontispiece and some light foxing, else very good. The first and probably only edition of this work. Lovesey and Macnab assert this is probably the first book on competitive athletics. “Barclay’s training methods were to influence athletics training for over a century” L&M. While L&M could be correct about this work’s role in the evolution of competitive athletics, a couple of earlier works on boxing should probably be considered. Nevertheless, this is quite a unique book. Includes accounts of his various walking matches and wagers, including 1000 miles in 1000 hours for 1000 guineas. There appears to be much competitive activity at this time, as there are a ranking list of walking races of the 18th and 19th centuries (see chapter three). His advice on training includes diet and dress and there are reports of shorter running races as well as walking. Walter Thom (1770-1824), who also wrote a history of Aberdeen, was the father of Alexander Thom, founder of Thom’s Almanac. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A New View of Society: or, Essays on the Principle of the Formation of the Human Character, and the Application of the Principle to Practice.

      London: Printed for Cadell and Davies by Richard Taylor and Co. (part I), for Cadell and Davies, and Murray by Richard and Arthur Taylor (part II), printed by Richard and Arthur Taylor... Not Published (parts III & IV)., 1813-14. 4 parts bound in one octavo volume (230 x 142 mm). Contemporary straight-grained dark blue morocco, spine decorated and lettered gilt in compartments, gilt roll borders, inner dentelles and edges, watered pink silk doublures and endpapers. Manuscript transcripts of several related documents on three leaves and the rear free endpaper, signed J. W. Ford, the son of John Walker's niece. Autograph letter signed by Robert Owen to General Lafayette laid in. Extremities very lightly rubbed; an excellent copy in a superb presentation binding. First edition, first issue of the four Essays – one of forty specially-bound presentation sets printed on thick paper, parts III & IV "Not published" – of "the first practical statement of socialist doctrine" (PMM). According to Edouard Dolléans, this is one of 40 copies bound for presentation: "En écrivant les Vues nouvelles, Owen a surtout pour objet de gagner à ses idées les membres les plus hauts placés de l'État et de l'Église; il fait relier richement par les plus habiles ouvriers quarante exemplaires des Vues nouvelles" (Édouard Dolléans, Owen, p. 145f). A New View of Society is "Owen's first and most important published work, containing the principles upon which he based his educational and social reforms at New Lanark, an account of their application there, and an outline of the means by which his theories might be applied to the nation as a whole. The first Essay … [dedicated to Wilberforce] was written in 1812 and published [anonymously], after it had been submitted to Francis Place for revision ... The second Essay was published in the same year, the third and fourth were privately printed and circulated during 1814, not being published until two years later" (Goldsmiths' Owen Exhibition). The work states clearly Owen's view of social development, stressing his egalitarian educational doctrine. At the New Lanark industrial settlement Owen erected a large new building, the 'Institute for the Formation of Character', which was to contain public halls, community rooms and above all schools for the children at work in the factory, and with a nursery school (what Owen called a 'playground'). The educational work at New Lanark for many years excited the admiration of visitors from all over the world. The 'Fourth Essay' of the book contains proposals at national level, including a universal state educational system, a Ministry of Education, colleges for training teachers, a system of state-aided public works, and the gradual abolition of the poor laws. A two-page manuscript note to the additional front free endpaper, together with a further five pages bound in at the end of the volume, signed by J. W. Ford, states that this copy was originally given by Robert Owen to William Allen, one of his business partners from 1814 in his third ownership of New Lanark. 1814. Allen (1770-1843), a philanthropist and scientist, purchased the New Lanark mills from Owen's previous partners, together with Owen, Jeremy Bentham, John Walker and three others, "in order to establish a model industrial community" (ODNB). The copy was subsequently in the library of John Walker, the largest shareholder after Owen in New Lanark, giving his family the largest financial stake and making the Walkers ultimate heirs to New Lanark. Laid in is an autograph letter from Robert Owen to General Lafayette, written from John Walker's house in Bedford Square, London, some time after Walker's death in May 1824, requesting help for Walker's widowed sister and her niece during their travels abroad: "My Dear General, Permit me to introduce to your kind notice Mrs & Miss Lewis the widowed sister & the niece of the late John Walker F.R.S. of London last known upon the Continent for his love for, & knowledge of, the arts & sciences & for the extraordinary urbanity of his life & manners. Should any occasion arise in the present agitated state of men's minds when these ladies might require advice or protection in a strange land I am sure you will extend yours to Mrs & Miss Lewis [2] as you have always done to those who required them on this as well as upon the other side of the Atlantic. Knowing how many letters you must now receive I will merely add that I remain Most Respecetd Sir, your sincere friend Robert Owen.
