        Autograph letter signed ("Mr. Shelley." in the third person) to Christopher John Pike.

      41 Skinner Street, Snow Hill, n.d., but probably August 1813 - One page, 12mo, with Shelley's red wax seal, red cloth portfolio. Provenance: A. Edward Newton (his sale Parke-Bernet, pt III, 30 October 1941, lot 247; bookplate in portfolio); Roger H. West (bookplate in portfolio). Excellent condition, the seal intact. Shelley writes in the third person: "Mr. Shelley requests that Mr. Pike would give the Bearer the copy of the Settlement in his possession. Mr. S. will return it in the course of the week." Kenneth Neill Cameron provides the most accurate dating for this letter in Shelley and His Circle, vol. III, pp. 244–48. This letter and one other (probably written to Shelley's lawyer, G. B. Ballachey) are the only ones to be known to have been written by Shelley from William Godwin's house, 41 Skinner Street, Snow Hill, in London. The probable date for both letters is 18–19 August 1813, the only two days when Shelley was at Godwin's house and was actively involved in procuring the 1791 settlement of the Shelley family estates as part of his efforts to raise post obit money for the financially strapped Godwin (see also James Bieri, Percy Bysshe Shelley, 2004, vol. I, pp. 300, 340). Shelley had just achieved his legal majority, having turned 21 on 4 August 1813. Christopher John Pike was a solicitor who Shelley and his wife later met at Ballachey's office on 14 September 1814 when another post obit sale was taking place. At this time, however, after Shelley's July 1814 elopement with Mary Godwin (he was married to Harriet Westbrook), both were banned by Godwin from entering his home. See De Ricci, A Bibliography of Shelley's Letters, 231.

Previous owner's name and small handstamp to foot of title. A very good, well-margined copy, printed on high quality paper with strong impression. . First Edition. Rare. Hirsch II, 639. Sonneck Orchestral Music p. 117. RISM M4246, MM4246 (a total of 3 copies in the U.S.). Köchel 8 p. 384. Haberkamp I p. 180. Hoboken 11, 141. First performed in Vienna at the Burgtheater on July 16th 1782, with a libretto by Johann Gottlieb Stephanie the Younger after Christoph Friedrich Bretzner. "The most important composition of this period, [1780-1783] however, was Die Entführung aus dem Serail, the libretto of which was given to Mozart at the end of July 1781. Originally planned for September, the première was postponed until the following summer (Mozart had completed the first act in August 1781). The opera was a great success: Gluck requested an extra performance, Schikaneder's troupe mounted an independent production in September 1784 (although the aria ‘Martern aller Arten’ was replaced because the orchestra was incapable of performing the obbligato solos), and productions were soon mounted in cities throughout German-speaking Europe. The earliest lengthy obituary of Mozart, in the Musikalische Korrespondenz der Teutschen Filarmonischen Gesellschaft of 4 January 1792, described the work as ‘the pedestal upon which his fame was erected’." Cliff Eisen et al in Grove online"The composition of this opera coincided with Mozart's marriage to Constanze Weber and his permanent settling in Vienna as a freelance composer and performer. Despite the intrigues and complications which plagued the premiere, it proved to be Mozart's most popular opera in his lifetime, partly due to the fashion for plays and operas on oriental subjects. But it was of this piece that the Emperor, according to Niemetschek (1798), made his famous comment: 'Too beautiful for our ears, my dear Mozart, and vastly too many notes', to which Mozart replied 'Just as many as are necessary, your Majesty'." Robbins Landon: The Mozart Compendium, p. 249.

        Théorie des fonctions analytiques, contenant les Principes du Calcul différentiel, dégagés de toute considération d'infiniment petits, dìévanouissans, de limites et de fluxions, et réduits à l'analyse algébrique des quantités finies. Nouvelle édition. V.e Courcier,, Paris, 1813 - In-4° (265x206mm), pp. XI, (1) di errata, 383, legatura coeva m. pelle marmorizzata. Titolo in oro su tassello rosso al dorso. Esemplare assai bello, salvo qualche lieve fioritura. Seconda edizione, riveduta e aumentata, del grande trattato di Lagrange sulle funzioni analitiche, stampato per la prima volta nel 1797 e destinato ad avere larghissima influenza in tutta la ricerca matematica ottocentesca e a condizionare in profondo le analisi di matematici come Cauchy, Jacobi, Weierstrass. "Cette seconde edition a plusieurs avantages sur la premiere. Elle est plus correcte ; on a mis plus d"ordre dans les matieres. Enfin on y a fait differentes additions dont les principales se trouvent dans le chapitre XIV de la seconde partie et dans le chapitre V de la troisieme". (Avertissement). "In this book, Lagrange intended to show that power series expansions are sufficient to provide differential calculus with a solid foundation. Today mathematicians are partially returning to this conception in treating the formal calculus of series. As early as 1812, however J.M.H. Wronski objected to Lagrange's claims. The subsequent opposition of Cauchy was more effective. Nevertheless, Lagrange's point of view could not be totally neglected. Completed by convergence considerations, it dominated the study of the functions of a complex variable throughout the nineteenth century". (DSB, VII, p. 570) Il Lagrange (Torino, 1736-Parigi, 1813), fra i matematici più insigni del suo tempo, Professore prima alla Scuola d'Artiglieria di Torino, poi, dal 1766, Direttore dell'Accademia delle Scienze di Berlino. In seguito insegnò a Parigi, alla Sorbona e alla Scuola Politecnica e fu membro dell'Institut de France e del Bureau des Longitudes, venendo anche insignito della Légion d'Honneur.

        Réflexions et observations anatomico-chirurgicales sur l'anévrisme. Traduites de l'italien par J. Delpech.

      Paris, Méquignon-Marvis, 1809-1813. - Paris, Méquignon-Marvis, 1809-1813 ; 1 vol. de texte in-8 et 1 atlas in-folio. Texte : VI, 470, (4) pp. et iij, 40 pp. (Additions au traité de l'anévrysme). Atlas : (2), 24 pp., 18 planches. Volume de texte en demi-basane verte du temps, dos lisse orné, dos légèrement insolé, notes manuscrites de l'époque (à l'encre) sur la page de faux-titre et au verso de la page de titre des "Additions au traité ." (encre ayant traversé le papier par endroits), sinon très bon état. Atlas en toile grise moderne, couverture bleue d'origine conservée (avec étiquette de titre au centre du plat supérieur), bel exemplaire non rogné. Première édition de la traduction française, augmentée d'un supplément. Antonio Scarpa (1752-1832), élève de Morgagni et titulaire de la chaire d'anatomie et de chirurgie de Pavie, rapporte ici les résultats de ses importantes recherches sur les anévrysmes. Il démontre, pour la première fois, que l'anévrysme n'est pas une simple dilatation d'une artère, mais qu'il est le résultat de modifications des tuniques vasculaires. Il est le premier à décrire de façon détaillée, avec dessins à l'appui, les lésions athéromateuses et évoque "une origine interne à évolution lente". Scarpa décrit ses procédés opératoires, après avoir rappelé ceux de ses prédécesseurs. Notre exemplaire renferme bien in fine, avec une page de titre propre, les "Additions au traité de l¿anévrysme . traduit par C.P. Ollivier" (Paris, Béchet jeune, 1822, 40 pp.). Le volume de texte et latlas paru quatre années plus tard sont devenus très rares, surtout réunis. Waller (8545) possédait l'atlas seul, tandis que Bedford (703) ne possédait que le volume de texte. L'atlas, dont il n'existe pas d'édition en langue anglaise, comporte de magnifiques planches gravées par Adam. Ces 18 planches sont numérotées de I à X (les planches 1, 3, 4, 5 et 7 sont en double état et il existe des planches 8 bis, 8 ter et 9 bis). cf. pour l'édition originale en italien : Garrison & Morton, 2975 : "Scarpa distinguished true from false aneurysms. He introduced the concept of arteriosclerosis." ; Heirs of Hippocrates 1109 : " plates exquisitely executed" ; Leibowitz, History of coronary heart disease, 106-109 : "We feel that it is the first anatomo-pathological description of arterial wall degeneration presented in full detail and well-illustrated . detailed and almost modern approach to the problem of areteriosclerosis .Scarpa's book is basically a surgical treatise and deals with ligature of the principal arteries of the extremities. Only one chapter is relevant to the theory of arteriosclerosis" ; Loria, Antonio Scarpa, 62 : "Scarpa's large and excellent monograph on aneurisms, written on the detailed and comparative studies of the normal and pathologic tissues involved, established for the first time that an aneurism is not a simple dilatation of an artery, but actually the result of profound and significant changes in the arterial vascular tunics. In order to provide a safe pattern for operative procedures on the large arteries he showed them with well-defined illustrations on his topographical sketches. These magnificent anatomical drawings are still considered tremendously important in the study of this well-determined subject today." ; Acierno, The history of cardiology, p. 101.

        PRIDE AND PREJUDICE A Novel. In Three Volumes. By the Author of "Sense and Sensibility"

      Printed for T. Egerton 1813 - First edition. Three volumes, bound in contemporary brown speckled calf. Green morocco title labels and gilt rules to the spine. "Charleton" embossed in gilt to upper board of each volume. Half titles present in each volume. A tall copy with each volume neatly rebacked, retaining most of the original spines with repairs to the joints and corners. Internally clean with occasional minor marks or foxing and a couple of marginal closed tears to leaves in volume III. Bookplate to the verso of each front endpaper. A very good example of of Austen's most popular novel, now rarely encountered in a contemporary binding. The author's second and most famous novel, which has become one of the most prominent literary works to come from the nineteenth century. The first draft of the novel was written under the working title of 'First Impressions' in 1796. In 1797 Jane Austen's father wrote to the publisher Cadell to ask if he would publish the novel. The offer was rejected by return of post. In 1800 The Minerva Press published a novel by Margaret Holford entitled First Impressions, which probably led to Austen changing the title of the work. In the following years, Pride and Prejudice was heavily rewritten and the copyright eventually sold to Egerton in 1812. There is no record of the number of copies of the first edition, but Keynes suggests 1500 as the probable print run. The book was well received and the first edition sold out within the year and one contemporary reader wrote, "I have finished the Novel called Pride and Prejudice, which I think is a very superior work. I really think it is the most probable fiction I have ever read." The association with Susan Carnegie is intriguing. Born in Edinburgh, she lived at Charleton from her marriage to George Carnegie in 1769 until her death in 1821. She was one of the most prominent early femists who ". learned to challenge the idea that women were intellectually less able than men, choosing instead to explain discrepancies in terms of women's educational opportunities and their general treatment in a patriarchal society. Certainly in her correspondence Susan was fearless in drawing attention to a lack of respect or of rudeness on the part of male writers." (Oxford DNB) As a rule Regency binders removed the half titles so copies in contemporary bindings retaining them are rare; the copies in such prominent collections as Sir Geoffrey Keynes's and R.W.Chapman's all had no half titles, nor do the Bodleian or Cambridge University library copies.

      Sackets Harbor, N.Y. May 29, 1813. - 1pp. Folio. Old fold lines. Some separation at folds; one tear closed with archival tape. Lightly soiled. Docketed on verso. Good. An eyewitness account of the second battle of Sackets Harbor, on the shores of Lake Ontario, written by the commander of the American forces there, Gen. Jacob Brown, to his friend Joshua Hatheway, Quartermaster General and formerly the commander of the defenses at Sackets Harbor. The town, situated near the entrance to the St. Lawrence River at the far eastern end of Lake Ontario and opposite the Canadian town of Kingston, was a vital defensive point for the Americans, challenging British control of the St. Lawrence and the lake, and preventing a British thrust into New York State. If either side could control both sides of the entrance to the St. Lawrence, they could control the Upper Great Lakes. Taking advantage of the American action against York, which drew troops away to the western end of the Lake, the British decided to strike. On the 28th of May, 1813, the British Great Lakes squadron under the command of James Yeo appeared off Sackets Harbor, carrying troops under the command of the Governor-General, Lieut. General George Prevost. Having been forewarned by several men who escaped the Battle of Henderson Bay the previous day, the Americans had some time to reinforce their defenses before the British could attack. The British landed on the 28th, but launched their main attack the next morning. They easily routed the American militia, but the regulars under Brown were able to fight off repeated attacks on their fortifications. Prevost, fearing the arrival of more American troops, ordered a retreat which nearly became a rout. Brown was the hero of the day, and was later rewarded with a commission as brigadier general. He must have immediately written this letter describing the action: "Dr. Sir, I received an order some days since from Genl Dearborn to take comm. at this Post. Comd. Chauncey is up the lake. We were this morning attacked as day dawned by Sir George Prevost in person who made good his landing with at least a thousand picked men. Sir James Yeo commanded the fleet after loosing some distinguished officers and of course some gallant men. Our loss is very severe as to the quality of those who have fallen. The enemy left many of their wounded on the Field - but I have no doubt carried off many more. We shall probably be again attacked as Sir George must feel very sore. All I can say is, whatever may be the result we will not be disgraced." A superb battlefield letter reporting on one of the most significant military actions of the War of 1812.

        Historia del Famoso Predicador Fray Gerundio de Campazas por el Padra Isla

      Madrid - Fuentenebro 1813 - An early nineteenth century Spanish edition of Jose Francisco's important satirical novel, originally banned by the Inquisition, in a fine binding. Direct from thelibrary at Newton Hall, Northumberland. With the armorial bookplates in Volumes I - III of author Samuel Edward Widdrington. Bound in leather with gilt lettering and decoration. Complete in Four Volumes. Written in the original Spanish. Jose Francisco de Isla de la Torre y Rojo, 1703 - 1781, was a Spanish novelist and Jesuit. The first volume of his important work, Historia del Famoso Predicador Fray Gerundio de Campazas, was banned within a month of publication in 1758by the Inquisition; the second part was published in 1768 and de Isla was exiled. The novel is a blend of two elements, narrative satire and the burlesque. This work is often seen as a insight into the life and customs of particular Spanish cities, as the descriptions and details given by de Isla are considered authentic. Samuel Edward Widdrington (formerly Cook), 1787 - 1856, was an English writer on Spain. Having served in the Royal Navy he lived for some years in Spain. He served as High Sheriff of Northumberland in 1854. He was a fellow of the Royal Society, and the Royal Geographical Society. He inherited the estates of Newton Hall, Northumberland, and the Widdrington name. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm. There is only very mild wear to the extremities, with just very mild rubbing, prominent to the spine. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright. Overall the condition is very good indeed.

        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]
