        Naval Poems. Pleasures of the Naval Life, and the Battle of Trafalgar.

      London: by T. C. Hansard for C. Cradock and W.Joy, and J. Hatchard, 1813 - Quarto (350 × 260 mm). Original drab boards, paper label to the spine. Modern bookplate to the front free endpaper, which has stained through to the verso slightly, joints a little cracked, spine chipping, boards a touch rubbed, but an excellently preserved, uncut copy. First edition. Downey explains that he has written "The Pleasures of Naval Life" as a corrective to the "tone of querulous despondence" that underlies so much naval literature; "The Naval Life is NOT a series of privations, distresses, and affliction. It presents a variety of situations, the delights of which are heightened by contrast." The poem takes the form of an account of a voyage from Falmouth to India, returning to London via St. Helena. In the second part he essays a blow-by-blow account of Nelson's climactic victory in rhyming couplets. The impressive four-page subscribers list includes Dr. William Beatty, who attended the dying Nelson on board Victory, Admirals Northesk and Durham, Vice Admiral Harvey and Captains Bayntun and Pellew, all of whom served in the battle, together with Cochrane, Admiral Duckworth, Admiral Keith, and John Wilson Croker, secretary to the Board of Admiralty, to whom the book is dedicated. An extremely handsome copy of an uncommon title, four copies only on COPAC, copy in NMM. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [Queen Mab, A Philosophical Poem, with Notes …]

      [London: by P. B. Shelley (actually by an unknown printer for Thomas Hookham), , 1813]. Octavo (179 × 112 mm.), pp. 240, with title-page and dedication leaf removed and imprint torn from foot of last leaf Q8 by Shelley, as issued; the dedication leaf since supplied from the 1821 Clark reprint, the last leaf rather crudely trimmed, margins restored, with one line of Greek text at foot of recto supplied in manuscript. Contemporary half calf, neatly restored, with green morocco spine label. Book label of Ian Jack (1923–2008), Emeritus Professor of English at Cambridge University. A few trivial marks internally, early ink notes about the history of the book to front and rear free endpapers, a good copy of a rare book. First edition, one of only approximately 70 copies of the first issue, the so-called "mutilated" state of the text. Queen Mab was Shelley's first important poetic work, preceded only by two verse pamphlets. In this first effort to build a poetic myth from his repudiation of the political, moral, and religious conventions of his era, Shelley provides a series of startling notes to his exotic verses, including a straight reprint of his explosive 1811 pamphlet, The Necessity of Atheism, for which he had been expelled from Oxford, and others espousing such subversive causes as free love, vegetarianism, and republicanism. Given the nature of its contents, it was inevitable that Queen Mab should be a clandestine publication. Hookham made the arrangements to have 250 copies printed on Shelley's behalf, but declined putting his own name to it. By law a printer's name and address had to be given, so Shelley shouldered this risk himself. To avoid inevitable prosecution, however, he deliberately "mutilated" every copy he personally distributed by cutting out the title-page and final imprint containing these incriminating details. That this was always the intention is shown by the fact that the printing on the recto of the last leaf stops one line shorter than the rest of the book, so that no vital matter was lost when Shelley cut away his name on the verso. With the title cut away, the first thing the reader saw was the poetic dedication to Harriet, his ill-fated first wife. Copies from which this leaf is also removed were therefore likely distributed by Shelley after the summer of 1814, when he eloped with Mary Godwin. From the evidence of the remainder of 180 unmutilated copies offered for sale by Richard Carlile in 1822, it can be inferred that Shelley distributed no more than 70 copies of the poem in this way. Although booksellers and auctioneers have regularly asserted the contrary, the "mutilated" state is much the rarer of the two, as an examination of library holdings and auction records quickly bears out, and the state in which Shelley personally issued it. It is the primary issue.

        Sense and Sensibility. A Novel.

      London: Printed for the Author by C Roworth and Published by T Egerton: Second edition 1813 - 3 volumes, 12mo., ([ii], 306pp.) + ([ii], 278pp.) + ([ii], 294pp.), lacking half-titles, some light occasional scattered spotting, bound in very good quality twentieth century white pigskin leather bindings with contrasting fine dark green morocco leather title labels to spines which are also gilt ruled in compartments. A lovely uncomplicated set in a fine binding all contained in purpose-made slipcase. (Gilson, A2). In 1811, Thomas Egerton of the Military Library publishing house in London accepted the manuscript for publication, in three volumes. Austen paid for the book to be published and paid the publisher a commission on sales. The cost of publication was more than a third of Austen's annual household income of £460. She made a profit of £140 on the first edition, which sold all 750 printed copies by July 1813. A second edition was advertised in October 1813. The story revolves around Elinor and Marianne, two daughters of Mr. Dashwood by his second wife. They have a younger sister, Margaret, and an older half-brother named John. When their father dies, the family estate passes to John, and the Dashwood women are left in reduced circumstances. The novel follows the Dashwood sisters to their new home, a cottage on a distant relative's property, where they experience both romance and heartbreak. The contrast between the sisters' characters is eventually resolved as they each find love and lasting happiness. Through the events in the novel, Elinor and Marianne find a balance between sense (or pure logic) and sensibility (or pure emotion) in life and love. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

A well preserved and foundational memento of Ferdinand Conrad Temme's sojourn as the third pastor of the Lunenburg Lutheran congregation. With receipt for the purchase of this Bible: 5 schillings paid to Johann Nicolaus Kaulbach, signed and dated December 1819 on verso of title page. A distinguished career of pedagogy in his homeland was interrupted by Napoleonic invasion from which he fled to Pennsylvania to serve as a pastor, from whence he was called to fill a vacancy in Lunenburg: "I reluctantly accepted this call, for reasons to myself to this day unaccountable and unknown, and on the 5th of February, 1808, commenced the voyage to this Siberia of America. On the 28th of April in the same year, I first trod the soil of Nova Scotia, at 2 o'clock at night." [D. Luther Roth: Acadie and the Acadians, 369f.] Recognizing the need for his congregations to have access to biblical study aids Temme was instrumental in writing and having printed teachings specifically for those in his care [see Roth p.374ff]. Full leather with early sewn repairs to hinges and foot of spine. Leather on spine and inner hinges recently and professinally stabilized retaining all original elements. One blank endpaper at front, none at rear. Lacking twenty verses of the final chapter of Revelation: the last complete verse present is Revelation 21:1 [a complete bible ends with Rev. 21:21].

        Captain Inglefield's Narrative of the Loss of the Centaur, in 1782 : being a literal extract of his letter to the Admiralty, written from Fayal in 1782. Also, a copy of the sentence of the Court Martial held upon the officers of the Centaur.

      Printed by P. Norbury., Brentford. 1813 - SIGNED PRESENTATION COPY. slim 8vo. [4] 26pp. disbound with marbled covers. inner margin stain otherwise excellent. John Nicholson Inglefield (1748 - 1828) was an officer in the British Royal Navy. According to Captain Inglefield himself his paternal family was of Lancashire origin and distantly connected to that of the Englefields. Under the patronage of his maternal uncle, Thomas Slade, Inglefield joined the navy as a boy of 11 in 1759. In April 1766 he was rated Able Seaman aboard the Launceston: in May 1768 he was made lieutenant and moved into HMS Romney under the command of Sir Samuel Hood. This connection was to prove the most significant of Inglefield's career. Although Inglefield returned to the Launceston in October, by July 1769 he was back with Hood aboard the Romney and from that time forward his career was closely associated with his friend's. With him Inglefield left the Romney in December 1770, served in HMS Marlborough and HMS Courageux, and in 1778 in HMS Robust with Hood's brother Alexander. Aboard the Robust he was present at the First Battle of Ushant on 27 July. The Battle of the Saintes, 12 April 1782: surrender of the Ville de Paris by Thomas Whitcombe, painted 1783, shows Hood's Barfleur, centre, attacking the French flagship Ville de Paris, right, at the Battle of the SaintesIn June 1779 Inglefield was promoted to command of the brig-sloop HMS Lively and in the October of the following year made Captain and posted to HMS Barfleur (90 guns), in which his patron, Sir Samuel Hood, hoisted his flag. As Captain of the flagship Inglefield sailed to the West Indies and took part in the skirmish with the French fleet off Martinique in 1781. In August of the same year Hood transferred him to HMS Centaur (74 guns), which Inglefield commanded in three actions against the French, culminating on 12 April 1782 at the Battle of the Saintes. However aboard the Centaur that Inglefield suffered the most harrowing episode of his career when, sailing for England with the convoy under Rear-Admiral Sir Thomas Graves, his ship along with the others was struck by a hurricane. The Centaur, an ageing ship, was severely damaged. Thrown upon her beam ends, dismasted in order to right herself and with her rudder gone, she eventually foundered despite the most strenuous efforts of Inglefield and the crew over several days. Inglefield and eleven others escaped aboard the pinnace, though otherwise the ship's complement of some six hundred men was lost. Subsisting on a few bottles of French cordials, some spoilt bread, ship's biscuit and rainwater wrung out into a bailing cup, the survivors successfully navigated to Faial Island in the Azores after sixteen days of the most terrible privation that saw one of them, Thomas Matthews, die the day before they reached land. On returning to England and the court martial usual in such cases, the survivors were acquitted. Inglefield's spare and unsensational description of this disaster, Captain Inglefield's narrative concerning the loss of the 'Centaur' was published shortly afterwards. A dramatic painting of the incident in which those on the pinnace, thrusting off from the foundering Centaur, pulled aboard a fifteen-year-old midshipman who had thrown himself from the wreck, was later made into a popular print. For three years Inglefield was given a home posting aboard the guardship HMS Scipio in the Medway. In 1786 however he and his wife were publicly involved in a marital dispute which led to a permanent breach. After accusing his wife of making advances towards a manservant, Inglefield demanded a separation. Denying the accusation, Mrs Inglefield sued him for desertion. Although she won her case in court, the marriage was irretrievably damaged and they appear never to have cohabited again. Rare, Author Signed Presentation Copy. Brentford 1813.

        Original Ink Press Letter by John Quincy Adams, Addressed to an Arctic Explorer or Whaler.

      London 1813 - Original Ink press copy of autograph letter by John Quincy Adams. Single-leaf unsized tissue, approximately 21cm x 11cm, with 9 lines printed ink text. Very good condition. At the time of this letter, John Quincy Adams was the first United States Minister to Russia, a post which he held from 1809-1814, and during which he resided two years in Russia. Though relations with Russia was his priority, the War of 1812 demanded his attention to foreign relations between the US and Britain. Fascinating letter by John Quincy Adams, in a seldom seen printing format, addresses a pertinent foreign relations issue, and part cause of the War of 1812. Evidently addressed to an arctic explorer or whaler who has just returned from a voyage, and whom is also concerned for his fellow navigator, this document pertains to the case of a certain American sailor who was impressed into the British Navy, but instead of being put into service, was held captive as a prisoner of war of the English Admiralty for six years or more. The letter reads: "The note which you addressed to the Sous-Intendent, upon the impressment of John Sweatland was perfectly proper. At my request Mr. Beasley also demanded his release, by a note to the Admiralty here. I hope it has been affected and if not, I request you would have the goodness to give me notice of it, and I will take further steps to obtain his liberation." "I congratulate you upon your arrival from the North Pole to the temperate zone, where I hope you will find the magnet equally and still more powerfully attractive to the needle of American commerce." "I am with high consideration, Dear Sir, your very humble and obedient servant, John Quincy Adams" End letter. The note is a copy produced on a "letter copying press," an early method of mechanical reproduction invented by James Watt in the 1780s. The letter copying press became quite popular in America. George Washington, James Madison, and Thomas Jefferson were all enthusiastic practitioners, and Benjamin Franklin boasted that he could get three good copies out of it instead of the usual one. The method involved laying a dampened piece of unsized tissue over a fresh document written out in a prescribed ink, and sandwiching the two sheets into a table-top press. The ink adhered to the tissue, producing a readable copy. Ink press copies were early on considered legal representation of original documents. Reuben G. Beasley, who is mentioned in the letter, was an agent to the United States, in England. He was busily engaged in the release of American sailors, such as in this case. Beasley's tireless petition "for the immediate and complete release" of a certain American sailor being held by the British, and the "discharge from his Britannic Majesty's service" would go on from March 1813 to at least October of that year, to no avail. In this process multitudinous correspondence and documentation was passed to and fro between himself, James Monroe who was then Secretary of War under President James Madison, (later 5th US president), Second Secretary to the Admiralty Sir John Barrow, the Transport Board, and the Lords Commissioners of the British Admiralty. Among other things, documented proof was required to show that sailor was indeed an American, born in Boston, Massachusetts The captive was Jonathan Bigelow, an American seaman who was impressed into British Naval service in 1807, and was assigned to the HMS Cornelia, although he was held captive instead for six years prior to Beasley's overture. The Niles Weekly Register, a historic Baltimore newspaper, published details of this plight on Saturday, July 15, 1815. The American State Papers. of the Congress of the United States, Part 1, Volume 3, published in 1832, contains much of the correspondences in full. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        A Journey Through Albania and Other Provinces of Turkey in Europe and Asia,

A very good copy. Second edition, published the same year as the first of this account of a tour of Albania, Greece, and Turkey the author made together with Lord Byron. "Hobhouse's account of this journey, Byron's first visit to Greece, is of great interest not only for the light it sheds on an important period in the poet's life, but also for Hobhouse's detailed accounts of ethnographical and topographical materials and his descriptions of Ali Pasha's court" (Blackmer). Initially travelling to Portugal and Spain, they "were encouraged by English naval and diplomatic intelligence to travel into Albania, where they stayed with Ali Pasha… an English naval force meanwhile took over most of the Ionian Islands, a fact on which Ali congratulated them. They then went into Greece, where they were surprised to discover considerable anti-Turkish feeling among the inhabitants. They based themselves in Athens, visiting Marathon on 24 January, and then went via Smyrna to Constantinople, where they attended an audience with Sultan Mahmoud II" (ODNB). Elements of this expedition were incorporated by Byron into Childe Harold's Pilgrimage, the narrative poem that would make its author famous and establish the image of the Byronic hero.
