        Apeo de las fincas de la Villa de Fromista, las de las Villas de Mancilla y Población de Campos, hecho en el año de 1773 por Real Probision de la Chancilleria de Valladolid á instancia del Defensor del Concurso que en aquella epoca habia formado á las rentas del marquesado de Fromista, cuias diligencias originales existen en el oficio de Juan Dionisio Gil, escribano del numero, sacada esta copia á solicitud del Licenciado Don Agustin de Frias y Val, Apoderado del Excmo. Señor Duque de Frías y Uceda

      - En Fromista [Palencia], a Diciembre quatro de 1814.- 2 h., + 111 hojas manuscritas a tinta negra por ambas caras, siendo la numerada 1 de papel sellado de Carlos IV del año mil ochocientos y ocho, pero indicando "Valga para el Reynado del Señor Don Fernando VII y año de 1814" [frase signada a derecha e izquierda], y siendo la numerada 111 de papel sellado de Fernando VII del año de mil ochocientos y trece, pero indicando "Valga para el año de mil ochocientos catorce"; In Folio (31 x 22 cm.); El conjunto está cosido con cordel formando un cuaderno.- Hay que decir que el sello de la página numerada 111 lleva la siguiente inscripción: "Hisp. Rex Ferd. VII, D. G. et Const. Monarch.", pero estas tres últimas palabras están tachadas con tinta negra, aunque se leen perfectamente. Es decir, es clara prueba de la confusión política del momento que hace aparecer a Fernando VII como rey constitucional y al año siguiente su sello pretende borrar esta definición. Por esta razón nos hallamos ante un sello bastante raro e importante. Por otra parte hay que comentar que la fecha del Apeo es bastante trascendente, pues justamente en el mismo año 1773 llega a Frómista el Canal de Castilla, lo que supuso una inyección de prosperidad en la decadente economía de la Villa, propiciando el regadío, el transporte y la aparición de fábricas de harina. Es por todo ello que los apeos, deslindes y demarcaciones que se piden en el documento dejarán claramente fijados los derechos de propiedad del ducado de Frías y Uceda, entre otras razones, para estos riegos bienechores. Documento de clara caligrafía y muy bien conservado, sólamente la hoja numerada 111 se halla bien restaurada de una pequeña rajita. Libro en español [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Nouveau traité du jeu des échecs

      2 parts bound in one. iv+167 with title chess diagram; 204+[3] with diagrams and errata. Octavo (8 1/4" 5 1/4") bound in marbled boards. (Bibliotheca Van der Linde-Niemeijeriana: 673) First edition.Louis-Charles Mahe de la Bourdonnais was born into a noble family on Reunion Island, then called Bourbon Island, in the Indian Ocean. He was sent to Paris where he attended the Henry IV College and learned to play chess in 1814. From 1818 onwards he played seven days a week at the Café de la Regence, where he had his own table. In 1821 he defeated Alexandre Deschapelles and John Cochrane and in 1823 he defeated Lewis in London. In 1825 he visited England again and there he married Eliza Waller Gordon. In 1831 he lost the money that he had inherited from his father in a land speculation in Saint-Malo. From then chess was his only source of income. In 1833 he published Nouveau Traite du Jeux des Echecs and in 1834 he played a match against Alexander MacDonnell. The match consisted of six parts and La Bourdonnais. They didn't speak each others language and could only say 'check' to one another. MacDonnell took far more time to make his moves and in between them La Bourdonnais played quick chess against other players to earn some extra money. During the sixth and last part La Bourdonnais was recalled to France on urgent business matters and MacDonnell died before the match could be resumed. In 1836 he became one of the editors of the first chess magazine, La Palamede. In 1838 he suffered a stroke and then from dropsy. Things went downward from then. He had to sell his books, furniture and clothes and in 1840 he returned to London where he was employed at Simpson's Divan. He died in December of that year and George Walker, the organizer of his match against MacDonnell, paid for his burial.Condition:Tape to spine, edges chipped and rubbed, some foxing else a good copy.

        Letter, signed ("Le Gnl. Cmt. Dupont") as Minister of War under the provisional government, to Maréchal Claude Victor-Perrin, duc de Bellune, acknowledging the latter's acceptance of Napoleon's abdication and the restoration of the Bourbons

      N.p. [Paris], 13 april, 1814 - An extraordinary letter of historic significance, written a mere two days after the Treaty of Fontainebleau of April 11, 1814, which set the terms of Napoleon's abdication, and ended an era. Dupont had been one of Napoleon's most distinguished generals, but his surrender in the disastrous Spanish campaign led to disgrace and imprisonment. After the fall of Napoléon, Dupont became Minister of War for Louis XVIII, and, in just such letters as this to Marshal Victor - one of Napoleon's most trusted generals - negotiated the acquiescence of Napoléon's military leaders: [in translation] "Monsieur le Maréchal; - The provisional government has read with intense interest the declaration in which your Excellency has announced his adherence to the act of the Senate pronouncing the abdication of Napoleon Buonaparte and the restoration of the Bourbons on the throne on their ancestors. By this declaration, taken in the interest of the country, your Excellency has established anew a claim to the gratitude of the French people as well as the respect and good will of His Majesty, Louis XVIII. Such is the opinion, sir, of the provisional government - and I am more than happy to be its messenger on this memorable occasion" (NAPOLEON) Folio. 1 p., on letterhead of "Ministère de la Guerre".

      [Paris, 1814. A fine plate from Bonpland's "Description des Plantes Rares Cultivées á Malmaison et á Navarre" considered to be the apex of Redouté's achievement as a botanical illustrator. Throughout his career, Redouté enjoyed royal patronage, beginning with Marie Antoinette and including the Empress Josephine, for whom he served as official painter. After Empress Josephine's divorce from Napoleon, Navarre became her principal residence, and she sought to recreate the horticultural splendours of Malmaison. This was the last work for which Redoute enjoyed her patronage, yet with the perfection of his stipple process, the illustrations are perfect both scientifically and artistically, and are a fitting close to the great era of Napoleonic works in which all available resources were used to document new and rare species. Bonpland, who provided the text for the work, was the botanist who accompanied von Humboldt in his explorations of South America and had succeeded Ventenat as botanist to Josephine.

        An essay on the prevention and cure of insanity; with observations on the rules for the detection of pretenders to madness

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme & Brown; Warrington, J. and J. Haddock, Warrington,, 1814. Octavo (225 × 137 mm). Original publisher's blue boards, rebacked with paper label to style. A little rubbed, some foxing and browning, but overall a very good copy. First edition. "George Nesse Hill (1766–1831) 'medical surgeon' of Chester wrote this critical compilation of 446 pages leavened by an appendix of 29 personally observed cases. As the title implies he stressed preventive and curative aspects, and perhaps as a result of seeing malingering among the Chester Garrison discussed 'the detection of pretenders to madness', a subject little heard of today … His interest in 'madness' had been roused by 'the observations of my late worthy preceptor Dr. James Maddocks of the London Hospital' who in his lectures had criticised physicians for not paying more regard 'to a class of diseases so distressing' and instead relegating them to 'men who make their management their only study' …" Hill was one of the first to mention 'syphilitic lunatics,' moving some way towards identifying the general paralysis of the insane in his statement that "Youthful syphilitics … are in advanced life frequent victims to melancholia with peculiar brainular mischief" (Hunter and Macalpine).

        A Voyage to Terra Australis, undertaken for the purpose of completing the discovery of that vast country, and prosecuted in the years 1801, 1802, and 1803, in His Majesty's Ship The Investigator and subsequently in the armed vessel Porpoise and Cumberland schooner

      W. Bulmer and Co. for G. and W. Nicol, London 1814 - Contemporary half russia over marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spines divided into six compartments by double gilt fillets, lettered in the second compartment, numbered in the fourth A fine set of the first edition text of the first circumnavigation of Australia an enlightening and fascinating story of brilliant navigation and discovery. Wantrup rightly calls this work 'the most outstanding book on the coastal navigation of Australia', and 'the centrepiece of any collection of books dealing with Australian coastal discovery. Flinders sailed from England on 18 July 1801, and during the next two years he surveyed the entire south coast of Australia from Cape Leeuwin to Bass Strait, the east coast, and the Gulf of Carpentaria. He returned to Port Jackson in 1803 having completed the first circumnavigation of Australia. On the return journey, Flinders was detained by the French in Mauritius for six and a half years and was not released until June 1810. He devoted the remainder of his life to the publication of this work, which was formally published one day before his death on 19 July 1814. It is a day-by-day record of the expedition and includes a lengthy introduction detailing earlier South Seas voyages and an appendix by Robert Brown, the botanist who accompanied the expedition. Flinders took great pains to insure the accuracy of the work and the charts contained in the atlas were used for navigation for over a century. The two volumes of text were originally published in both large-paper and normal issues: the present set is from the regular-sized issue.

Modern quarter morocco portfolio over marbled boards, gilt title and decoration. Hardback. Posadas, who was the first Supreme Director of the United Provinces of Rio de la Plata, accused Colonel Jose Artigas (1764-1850) of treason for which he was sentenced to death. A reward of 6000 pesos is offered for his capture, dead or alive. Those of his troops and officers who did not surrender were to be declared traitors, judged by a military commission, and shot within 24 hours if found carrying weapons. Artigas was the leader of an independent band of rebels during the conflict with Spain, but his independence caused problems for the United Provinces leading to this call for his capture and execution, neither of which occurred due to his widespread popularity. Later Artigas would lead the war for Uruguayan independence against Argentina and became its first president. Scarce. OCLC locates only one copy at UC Berkeley. Furlong IV: 3039.

"Libraries assembled by wealthy bibliophiles became very numerous during the nineteenth century and soon developed from the gentleman's library exemplified by the [Pierre Antoine] Crevenna collection . Like the Crevenna catalogue, the catalogues of such libraries are usually examples of luxurious printing and are sold at high prices, if they are sold at all. The descriptions of the books are often very detailed and often, in the most recent catalogues of this sort, deal with the history of the particular copy that is described. Perhaps Thomas Frognall Dibdin set the pattern for the modern bibliophile owner's catalogue by the Bibliotheca Spenceriana. This and many catalogues like it are naturally valuable to collectors, bibiographers, and scholars." (Taylor: Book Catalogues: Their Varieties and Uses, 8-9). DeRicci calls this catalogue "the handsomest and most elaborate catalogue of a private library yet issued" (English Collectors of Books & Manuscripts, 75). Very occasional spotting, with some chipping to edges. Stamp of a defunct library on title-pages, and occasionally elsewhere, but with no other library markings. Short closed tears to half-title of vol. 1; short tears/small pieces missing to top of several leaves in vol. 2, not affecting text; rear blank of vol. 3 tape-repaired; some offsetting from engravings and linecuts.

      London, Gale, Curtis, and Fenner (printed by S. Hamilton, Weybridge, Surrey), 1814.. In two volumes. 2 Bände. IV, 1 Bl., 260 S.; 281 S., 3 unnumerierte Seiten (Verlagsanzeigen). Kl. 8°, Halblederbände der Zeit mit roten Rückenschildern und leichten Rückengoldprägungen.. Die Ecken etwas gestaucht, die Deckel etwas beschabt, die Rückentiteleien etwas verblasst, in den Gelenken etwas angeplatzt, von Band 2 der Vorderdeckel insg. stärker gelockert, die Vorsätze jeweils in den Ecken leim-, bzw. braunschattig. Namensschilder und handschriftliche Namenseintragungen auf beiden Vorsatzblättern (Heinr. Eberh. Röder, bzws. Henry E. Roeder). - Originalausgabe! Nicht der Reprint (CD-ROM, bzw. Microfiche) aus dem Olms-Verlag! Englisch. Der Verfasser, nach dem Vorwort zu urteilen ev. ein deutscher Adeliger, scheint vor den kriegerischen Handlungen der napoleonischen Kriege, bzw. der Befreiungskriege nach England geflüchtet zu sein! Er reist von Berlin, sein Brieffreund war da wohl noch in Königsberg über Hamburg und mancherlei schwierige Wege dann letztendlich nach England und verbringt dort einige Jahre mit Reisen durch England und Schottland. Aus dem Vorwort: " This series of Letters arose from a correspondence which a foreigner, during his residence in this country, really kept up with an intimate friend on the Continent. They were originally written in German, and of course not designed for publication. As, however, the Author's stay here was protracted by the unfavourable turn in the affairs of Europe previous to the battle of Leipsic,... These letters are the same mentioned some weeks ago in "Lara", as being translated from the German, which alluded to the original manuscript never published before." - In Englisch. - Via COPAC nur wenige Exemplare in Schottland und England (u.a. Birmingham, Edinburgh, Aberdeen, Glasgow und in der British Library) ermittelbar, in Deutschland nur ein Exemplar in der Universitätsbibliothek Erfurt. - The British Critic: A New Review, Band 3 schreibt 1815 über das Werk: " These letters are supposed to be written from a person residing in England to his friend on the Continent during 1810, and the three following years. They contain rapid scetches of the most remarkable scenery both of England and Scotland, and general descriptions of the principal cities and towns...The following description of Lemington will give the reader a fair idea of the whole: " Four miles from Newcastle, on the north side of the Tyne, are situated the iron-works of Lemington, where the ore is melted, east into pigs, and the iron worked into any shape wanted. This is an image of hell, as St. Augustine represents it, and I assure you not without cause." We must remark, however, that the information conveyed in these letters, is often spoilt by a pert vulgarity both of observation and style, which we are sorry to see estended in some instances towards principle also, as in the remarks on the opposition made to Mr. Lancaster's system of education."

But luck was not with Joseph Ehrenfried. This hefty book broke his printing business into bankruptcy. Joseph Ehrenfried's 1814 Martyrs' Mirror was beautifully designed and carefully printed. But fortune was not smiling on Joseph Ehrenfried. This book bankrupted him, and he was forced to work for the printer John Baer for the next 20 years. The Lancaster printer Joseph Ehrenfried gambled on the Martyrer Spiegel (Martyrs' Mirror) and he lost his shirt.

The plates amount to 2592, and they are, on the whole, the most expressive and accurate of their kind." Upon its first appearance, contemporary Suffolk botanist Thomas Jenkinson Woodward wrote to Smith: "I have got the first No. of English botany, and am charmed with it. I have recommended it to every body I have seen who buys of this sort The paper, print and execution of the plates, is so much superior to Curtis, that there can be no fear of its succeeding ". "English botany is of value even to the present day as a work of reference, and as an illustrated flora of our country it has never been surpassed." (Henrey II p. 143) Henrey 1366. Hunt 717.
