WATHEN, James.
VIII, 357, [2] pp.First and only edition of the Dutch translation of a travel account by James Wathen, originally published in 1814 with the title Journal of a voyage in 1811 and 1812, to Madras and China; returning by the Cape of Good Hope and St. Helena; in the H.C.S. The Hope, Capt. James Pendergrass (London, J. Nichols & son and Bentley, 1814), with 24 hand-coloured aquatints.Wathen (1751?-1828) carried on his father's business of glover in Hereford. After retiring from the trade he employed his leisure time in walking excursions in all parts of Great Britain and Ireland. In these expeditions he amused himself by making innumerable sketches of interesting objects and scenery. From 1787 onwards he was a frequent contributor to the Gentleman's Magazine, publishing topographical descriptions illustrated by sketches.The translator Nicolaas Messcheert (1774-1833) was a well-known and highly respected school inspector and minister in Rotterdam who also translated the first volumes of Gibbon's Rise and fall of the Roman Empire. He joined the Dutch Maatschappij der Nederlandse Letterkunde in 1817.Binding slightly worn at the edges, otherwise in good condition.l Abbey, Travel 517 (1st Engl. ed.); Cordier, Sinica, 2107; Lust 386 (1st Engl. ed.); Mendelssohn II, p. 591; Mendelssohn (1979), IV, p. 730; for the Dutch translation, see the favourable review in: Vaderl. letteroef., 1817, pp. 416-420; not in Tiele.

STUART, Charles Beebe.
216; [4], 22, [2 blank]; 4; 21, [1] pp.Second edition, published in the same year as the first, of a well-illustrated work on the steamships of the United States by Charles Beebe Stuart (1814-1881), American engineer, United States Navy and Union Army officer. It is dived into two parts, treating naval and mail steamers and followed at the end by a message from the publisher and several advertisements. It includes historical and technical descriptions of well-known steamers such as The Allegheny, The Demologos, the John Hancock, The Powhatan, The Saranac, etc. It also includes a notable illustration of The Powhatan as frontispiece. "The Powhatan, Perry's famous flagship on the second voyage, survives in photographs, small-scale models, and - most spectacularly - the romantic frontispiece of a now classic 1853 book by Charles Beebe Stuart titled Naval and mail steamers of the United States. This luminescent, painterly rendering breathes romance and even mystery into this rather stolid warship through the filtered light and near-mystic ambiance associated with the 'Turner school' of high-art painting" (Dower).With library stamp on first endleaf. Heavily foxed throughout, not touching the frontispiece. Binding slightly rubbed, spine discoloured. A well-illustrated work on steamships.l Cat. NHSM, p. 782; Sabin 93147; cf.

[PADDENBURGH, Gerrit Gijsbert].
[4], 90, [2 blank] pp.First and only edition of a description of the Dutch colony of Curaçao, by the first Dutch writer who permanently settled on the island. Although the book was written for an audience in The Netherlands, much of the information is of practical use and seems to aim at new visitors or settlers. After a description of the geography and climate of the island, the author describes the various settlements forming Willemstad. The houses of Willemstad are described as being in Dutch style and plastered white, although the government has started painting the houses yellow and dark grey. What follows is a description of the so-called easy life of the slaves who, the author believes, have far less needs than a person of European descent. He finds his proof in the increasing number of slaves on the island which, after the slave trade had been abolished in 1814, is entirely due to the high birth rate among slaves, which he considers equal to a good life.With a shelfmark of the "Bibliotheek van Doctrina & Amicitia" on the paste-down. Binding worn at the sides with light restoration at the edges and a few wormfoles at the bottom of the front.

[SHERWOOD, Mary Martha (Caroline Phebe KEITH, translator)].
65, [1 blank] pp.Extremely rare Chinese woodblock edition of Mary Martha Sherwood's Little Henry and his bearer, first published in English in 1814, with the Chinese transcribed phonetically using the Latin alphabet following the Shanghai dialect (with occasional Hindustani words). It was translated into the Shanghai dialect by the Shanghai missionary Caroline Phebe Keith (1821-1862). Keith (née Tenney) came from a New Hampshire family. Her parents died when she was 16 and 17. In 1849, soon after her fiancée abandoned her, she decided to become a missionary, serving in Shanghai from 1850 to 1857. The book ''tells the story of a young British boy who, on his deathbed, converts Boosy, the Indian man who has taken care of him throughout his childhood ... Sherwood's tale blends the realistic with the sentimental and introduces her readers to Hindustani words and descriptions of what she felt was authentic Indian life. With this work, the obituary tract (which invariably stressed conversion and a Christian death) had assumed the colouring of romance'' (Cutt).The paper is slightly browned and in a few double leaves the head or foot of the fore-edge fold has torn a centimetre or two, but the book is otherwise in very good condition. The wrapper has a few small and very minor tears and stains, there is a larger tear in the front endleaf and the threads have come loose and are partly lost.

KOTZEBUE, August von (attributed).
Geschiedkundig tafereel van den aftogt der Franschen na de bataille by Leipzig, van den 16. Tot den 19. October 1813. Een pendant tot den Aftogt der Franschen uit Rusland.Amsterdam, Evert Maaskamp, 1814. 8vo.Original publisher's printed wrapper. 39 pp. Dutch translation of an account of the Battle of Leipzig in October 1813 and the subsequent French retreat, attributed to the German dramatist and diplomat August von Kotzebue (1761-1819). Originally published anonymously as Der Rückzug der Franzosen nach der Schlacht bei Leipzig and possibly printed in Russia, the pamphlet was presented as a companion piece to an account of the French retreat from Russia in 1812 which was also translated and published by Maaskamp.With Amsterdam and most of the Netherlands abandoned by the French, the publisher Maaskamp (1769-1834) published numerous accounts of the recent events, listed on the inside of the wrapper, that had led to the French retreat all over Europe. The author of the pamphlet appears to have been a Saxon living in Leipzig as well as an enthusiastic German patriot, which seems to disqualify the attribution to Kotzebue, who was mostly pro-Russian and would ultimately be murdered for ridiculing German nationalism. Nevertheless, the author shares Kotzebue's low opinion of the French bulletins, which he portrays as full of air.With the bookplate and stamp of the Luyken family at Landfort (Megchelen). The front of the wrapper and the title page browned and foxed and the final 5 leaves and back of the wrapper with a waterstain. Otherwise in good condition. Knuttel 23648.

1814. One double-page woodcut map. 56; 60 folding leaves. Two vols. 8vo, orig. wrappers, new stitching. [China]: Wei jing tang, Preface dated 1814.An early, variorum edition (1st ed.: 1777) of this great classic, the Xiyu wenjianlu. "The Manchu official Qishiyi, in [the present work], offers a frontiersman's view of the conquest quite different from that of the imperial center. Qishiyi, who earned his jinshi degree in 1754, served as a low-ranking official in charge of grain supply in Turkestan. He narrates vividly the struggle for succession to the Zunghar Khanate after Galdan Tseren's death, describes the states bordering the Qing in Central Eurasia, and recounts the wars against Amursana, Khoja Jihan, and Burhan ad-Din, and the return of the Torghuts. Under the pen name 'Chun Yuan,' he takes on the persona of a commentator who reflects on the general principles exemplified by his account..."He discusses in detail the major cities of Central Eurasia and the customs of many of its peoples, including the Kazakhs, Kirghiz, Andijanis, Hindustanis, Kashmiris, and Ottomans. His discussions include an extraordinary amount of detail about these peoples, clearly gathered from diverse sources, mostly travelers and envoys. This text contains more information about Central Eurasia than any of the other geographical works produced in his time..."Qishiyi's residence on the frontier had expanded his geographical horizons far beyond the conventional Chinese awareness of those within and those beyond the passes. He knew that the multifarious landscape of Central Eurasia contai … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris, Jean, [1814-1815]. 508 x 638 mm. Très rare jeu de l'oie géographique dédié aux départements français, publié par Pierre Jean pour célébrer le retour de la monarchie et l'arrivée au pouvoir de Louis XVIII. Il est composé de 90 cases, la première étant occupée par un plan de Paris et de ses environs, la seconde par une vue de l'arc de triomphe de la Porte Saint-Denis, qui était l'entrée principale de Paris. Les cases 3 à 89 sont illustrées de cartes des 87 départements français, la dernière case contient une carte de la France divisée en 87 départements. Les départements de la Vendée, des Côtes du Nord, du Rhône, de la Seine, du Morbihan, de la Gironde, de la Côte d'Or, de la Seine et Oise et de la Marne sont ornés d'une couronne. Les règles du jeu sont ornées des armoiries de Louis XVIII, roi de France, affichant trois fleurs de lys, le sceptre de la main de Justice et un sceptre orné d'une fleur de lys. Ces règles indiquent notamment que le joueur arrivant sur la case du département du Mont-Blanc "ne peut passer à cause des neiges", que le joueur arrivant sur la case du département des Landes "ne peut avancer à cause des sables", et que le joueur arrivant sur la case du département des Hautes Pyrénées "n'ose le traverser seul à cause des voleurs espagnols qui font des courses dans cette partie". Ce jeu ne porte pas de date mais il peut être très précisément daté de la Première Restauration, entre le printemps 1814 et le printemps 1815, grâce aux armoiries royales portant les trois fleurs de lys, et à la présence du département du Mont-Blanc, effectif jusqu'en 1815. … [Click Below for Full Description]

LonJohnson and Co, St Paul's Church-Yard, 1814. [Firearms reference] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (19 x 12cm), pp.xvi; 150. Publisher's drab grey paper-covered boards, printed title label to spine, edges untrimmed. Contents clean, covers a little bumped and marked, joints worn, chipped to crown of spine. A very good example of a rare book in first edition. According to a loosely inserted news-clipping from the Antique Trades Gazette, a similar copy (uncut in original boards) had sold at auction in Sept 2008 for £3000. Celebrated diarist, author, soldier and target shot, Hawker had served with the 14th Light Dragoons under the Duke of Wellington during the Peninsular War. He published his "Advice to Young Sportsmen" in 1814, a popular work with nine impressions in his lifetime. The first edition of his shooting classic did not credit Hawker as author and was printed in small numbers, principally for private circulation among his friends. An Australian review in 1893 claimed "probably no book on the subject of sport ever enjoyed so wide or so long sustained a popularity as the Instructions to Young Sportsmen" [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

ACKERMANN, Rudolph (publisher) and various authors including William COMBE and Frederick SHOBERL
London: R. Ackermann, 1814. In generally good condition; some mostly light offsetting from plates onto text, as is usual.. Two voumes, quarto; with engraved portrait of the Chancellor, Lord Grenville, 64 hand-coloured aquatint plates, and 17 coloured costume plates of university figures in their academic garb; contemporary half calf. First edition: a very good complete set of the classic and beautifully illustrated work on Oxford University, with 64 marvellous coloured aquatint depictions of Oxford colleges and scenery after original works by various artists including Augustus Charles Pugin, Frederick Nash, Frederick Mackenzie and William Westall (the last of these was of course the official artist on Matthew Flinders' voyage of the Investigator). Rudolph Ackermann was an Anglo-German bookseller, inventor, lithographer, publisher, and businessman. His various illustrated works (see also Rowlandson and Pugnin's Microcosm of England in this catalogue) present a pictorial tour of Georgian Britain in which architecture is humanised with figures of people going about their business. This is a good example of an earlier issue of the book and therefore better impressions of the aquatint plates. --- There are some complicated states and issues that affect this book: this is a regular example of an earlier issue, with only early (1812) watermarks appearing (plates VI, XXII, XL, LXVII, LXXIII, & LXXVI). Of the ten plates known to have specific states, eight are in the more regularly found second state except plates XXIV (Vol. II, p. 35) & LI (Vol. II, p. 201), which are in the fir … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wieck, Friedrich, Klavierpädagoge und Komponist (1785-1873).
Zeugnis für den 25-jährigen dänischen Pianisten Adolph Nathan (1814-1885): "Herr A. Nathan aus Kopenhagen war eine lange Zeit in Leipzig und hat eine Anzahl Lektionen in Klavierspiel bei mir genommen. Indem ich seinen außerordentlichen Fleiß, seine große Ausdauer, nicht minder seine Empfänglichkeit für die Prinzipen des höheren Klavierspiels und einer großartigen, edlen und gefühlvollen Darstellung, verbunden mit einem guten und schulgerechten Anschlag, rühmen muß, wünsche ich ihm von Herzen die Mittel, um noch in seiner ersten Jugendkraft ungestört und unabhängig seinem ernsten Studium längere Zeit leben und mehrere Klavierspieler ersten Ranges hören zu können. Dieß mit einem gebildeten und für seine Kunst lebenden Lehrer zur Seite würde Herrn Nathan zu einem der ausgezeichnetsten Klavierspieler und Lehrer machen, da auch dessen persönliche Eigenschaften ihm zur Empfehlung dienen." - Nathan kehrte nach seinen Studien in Leipzig in seine Heimat zurück, trat 1841 in der Musikgesellschaft in Kopenhagen auf und ließ sich bald darauf als Klavierlehrer in Aalborg nieder. Er veröffentlichte Kompositionen im Salonstil für Klavier und Lieder. - Leicht gebräunt. Rückseitig leichte Montagespuren. - Selten.

Nestroy, Johann Nepomuk, Schriftsteller (1801-1862).
"Geehrter Herr! | Die zweite Aufführung von Kaiser's Charakterbild: 'Ein Bauernkind', dauerte, nach dem der Verfasser, den Rath der Kritik befolgend, einige zweckmäßige Kürzungen vorgenommen hatte, nur bis nach halb zehn Uhr. Der Beifall, welcher von dem übervollen Hause sowohl der Dichtung als den wahrhaft brillanten Dekorationen gezollt wurde, war ein rauschender, namentlich bringt der meisterhaft dargestellte Sonnen-Aufgang im Gebirge stets einen erhabenen Eindruck hervor [...]" - Der Dramatiker Friedrich Kaiser (1814-1874) verfasste über 160 Stücke für das Wiener Volkstheater. Oftmals spielte Nestroy darin die Hauptrolle. Da in der Wienbibliothek ein gleichlautender Privatbrief erhalten ist, schrieb Nestroy wahrscheinlich mehrere Empfehlungsbriefe an Redakteure zur Aufnahme in die Theaternotizen. Die Rezension der Uraufführung von "Ein Bauernkind" (am 25. Oktober im Carltheater mit Muik von Carl Binder) im "Wiener Courier" am 28. X. 1856 von Moritz Bermann forderte Kürzungen, betonte aber ebenfalls die Schönheit des Bühnenbildes von Moriz Lehmann (1819-1877). Die Kürzungen kamen in der Kritik gut an, wie man dem "Wiener Courier" vom 29. X. 1856 entnehmen kann. Dennoch erlebte das Stück nur 8 Aufführungen. - Vgl. Sämtliche Briefe. Hrsg. von W. Obermaier, 2005, Nr. 143. - Sehr selten.
