Others are copied from Piranesi, Bartoli, and Millin. Nineteen plates in the section on tombs "may not at first appear connected with the principal object of the work: yet as they represent some of the vast and superb sepulchral chambers in which Vases, Cinerary Urns, and Sarcophagi were deposited, and are taken from Bartoli and other celebrated authorities, it is hoped that they will be considered as an useful addition."(p. v) These include the mausoleum of Hadrian, and the tombs of Caius Cestius, Cecilia Metella, Alexander Severus and Julia Mammea, &c. The engraver Moses "enoy[ed] a great reputation for his outline plates, which are distinguished for the purity and correctness of the drawing.

        Martyrer Spiegel (Martyrs' Mirror); The Bloody Theater or Martyrs Mirror of the Defenseless Christians in German

      EHRENFRIED, JOSEPH, LANCASTER,PA 1814 - Martyrer Spiegel (Martyrs' Mirror - Stories of Christian Martyrs; Full Book Title: The Bloody Theater or Martyrs Mirror of the Defenseless Christians Der Blutige Schau-Platz: oder Martyrer Spiegel der Tauffs-Gesinnten,oder wehrlosen Christen, Die um des Zeugnisses Jesu,ihres ge Tells the stories of Christina Martyrs, especially those who were Anabaptists. Its author Thieleman Jansz van Braght, elder of the Flemish Mennonite congregation at Dordrecht; illustrations were by engraver Jan Luiken. Historically for Amish and Mennonites, the Martyrs Mirror has been the most important book next to the Bible. DOES NOT CONTAIN ANY engravings or illustrations Der Blutige Schau-Platz: oder Martyrer Spiegel der Tauffs-Gesinnten,oder wehrlosen Christen, Die um des Zeugnisses Jesu,ihres getodtet worden sind, von Christi zeit an, bis auf das Jahr 1660. The Book that Broke the Printer Joseph Ehrenfried: In 1814 he published and printed the same martyrs' book that had put the Ephrata Cloister print shop on the bibliographic map, when they printed it in 1748. 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.

Second French Edition, the second edition to be printed and distributed. Only five complete copies of the original 1810 edition of 10,000 survived Napoleon’s immediate censorship and destruction of the book on the grounds that it was "not French", and Mme de Staël herself was exiled from France. After journeying through Russia, Finland, and Sweden, she arrived in London where she "received a brilliant reception and was much lionized during the season of 1813". (Encyc. Britann., 11th Edn.) In that year John Murray brought out his edition of De L’Allemagne. Mme de Staël made two separate trips to Germany, the first in 1804 in the company of Benjamin Constant, the second in 1807. Her book succeeded in acquainting the French with the literary and philosophical works of Goethe, Schiller, Kant, Fichte, Schelling, and Schlegel, and has been lauded as "perhaps the most remarkable account of one country by a native and inhabitant of another, which exists in literature".

        The Letters of Lords Nelson to Lady Hamilton;

      London: Thomas Lovewell & Co.,, 1814. with a Supplement of Interesting Letters by Distinguished Characters. 2 volumes octavo (207 × 129 mm) Later blue half morocco, linen boards, by Rivière & Son, title gilt direct to the spine, raised bands, lozenges gilt to compartments, single gilt rule to the spine and corner edges, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers Lightly rubbed at the extremities, mild tan-burn to the free endpapers, light browning, but overall a handsomely bound, wide-margined copy, in very good order. First edition. Uncommon, and controversial, collection, purportedly - rather ineffectually - suppressed. J.K. Laughton suggested that James Harrison, whose early biography (The Life … 1806) was primed and carefully overseen by Emma Hamilton, was responsible for the publication of these letters "after he had stolen them from her" (NMM). John Wilson Croker, secretary to the Admiralty, reviewed the publication anonymously in the Quarterly Review, expressing the view that; "The fame of Lord Nelson is, as his life and services were, public property; and we absolutely deny the right to which any unworthy possessor of a few of his private notes may pretend, to invade … that public property, and lower the reputation of the hero and his country" (1814, p. 73), concluding that the letters were in fact forgeries. But in 1817, when Lovewell declared bankruptcy "and Nelson's letters to Emma were put up for auction, together with other papers still in his possession. Croker moved quickly to purchase them privately, and kept the fact hidden, seeing no reason to parade Nelson's weakness in public" (Lambert, Nelson: Britannia's God of War, p. 5).

      London: Printed for J. Nichols, Son, and Bentley; and Black, Parry, and Co.,, 1814. Returning by the Cape of Good Hope and St. Helena; in the H.C.S. the Hope, Capt. James Pendergrass. Tall quarto (262 x 210 mm). Modern half dark straight grained morocco, marbled boards, raised bands to spine, titles and decorations to compartments gilt, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. 24 hand-coloured aquatint plates by Clark after Wathen. Spine ends a touch worn, front joint split, a few light scuff marks to boards, front inner hinge cracked but firm, mild offsetting from plates, occasional spotting to margins. An excellent copy. First edition. In 1811, Wathen (1751-1828), a frequent contributor to the Gentlemen's Magazine, sailed to India and China with Captain James Pendergrass, an old school friend. The voyage resulted in the present work which, published to generally favourable reviews, includes seven views of India, six of Indonesia, nine of China, and two of St. Helena. "The author displays in every thing a picturesque turn of fancy, and is attracted on all occasions by the visible imagery which surrounds him. Both by his descriptions and his sketches, he has added to our knowledge of Madras and its neighbourhood, of Pulo-penang, and of Canton; and he will be followed by the reader and the gazer with much gratification and little fatigue" (The Monthly Review, vol. 77, 1815, p.278).

        Hydrographical Chart of the World on Wright or Mercator's Projection With Tracts of the Last Circumnavigators

      Edinburgh: J. Thompson, circa, 1814. Handcoloured engraved map measuring 458 x 520 mm. (sheet size); some foxing, closed tear to one corner, good. A detailed and most attractive world map charting great voyages of discovery, including expeditions led by La Pérouse, George Vancouver, John Gore, Charles Clerke and all three voyages of James Cook. The map was printed in 1814 by John Thompson, a publisher and bookbinder based in Edinburgh. This charming world map formed a showpiece in his New General Atlas of 1817. It forms a neat visual presentation of circumnavigation of the eighteenth-century, with some mild geographical inaccuracies in the treatment of Australia and the Northwest coast of North America. The polar regions remain uncharted and mysterious.

      1814. Kreidelithographie in Sämisch mit Lichtern, 1814, auf festem Velin. 32,9:33 cm. Inkunabel der Lithographie. - Bugfalte geglättet, Einriß am Unterrand. Literatur: Nagler 6; Thieme-Becker S. 444; Dussler 6; Winkler (Stuntz) 833.5 und Abb. 39; Freyberg L 4.. Tochter des Landschaftsmalers, Kunsthändlers und Musikers J.B. Stuntz (1753-1836), der zusammen mit J.N. Strixner (1782-1855) und F. Piloty (1786-1844) in München eine Steindruckerei gegründet hatte. Ausgebildet bei ihrem Vater und seinen beiden Kompagnons, arbeitete sie erst in der lithographischen Anstalt. Hier hatte sie mit eigenen Folgen großen, auch finanziellen Erfolg, weshalb sie für die Familie einen Sommersitz in Thalkirchen bei München erwerben konnte. 1813 ging sie zum Studium der Historienmalerei an die Münchner Akademie und war Schülerin von J.P. von Langer (1756-1824) und dessen Sohn R. von Langer (1783-1846). Bereits 1815 sollte sie mit ihren ersten ausgestellten Ölgemälden große Anerkennung finden. 1818 folgte eine Reise nach Paris, wo sie die Werke der Alten Meister studierte und vor allem nach Raffael kopierte. Ein dreijähriges Reisestipendium ermöglichte ihr anschließend einen Aufenthalt in Italien. Hier begegnete sie Louise Seidler (1786-1866) und entdeckte, auch durch F. Overbeck angeregt, die religiöse Malerei. 1821 wurde sie Ehrenmitglied der Accademia di San Luca. Nach München 1822 zurückgekehrt, heiratete sie 1823 den ihr seit 1818 bekannten Kgl. Bayer. Vize-Oberstallmeister Wilhelm Frh. von Freyberg. Danach wechselnde Aufenthalte in München und Thalkirchen sowie Fortsetzung ihrer künstlerischen Tätigkeit. Sie schuf ein großes OEuvre an Landschaften, Porträts, Historien- und Genrebildern sowie religiösen Motiven. Von der in ihrer Zeit als eine der besten Zeichnerinnen und Malerinnen gerühmten Künstlerin besitzen zahlreiche Museum und Graphische Sammlungen Werke, so in München, Berlin und Wien.

        The Velvet Cushion

      London: T. Cadell and W. Davies, 1814. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing bound in three-quarter leather and marbled boards (boards curved, rubbing to the each board's surface and rubbing to their respective edges, old white tape repair to the margin of one page, scattered foxing). Published anonymously, the book presents a memoir about the Church of England given by a vicarage cushion who begins its tale by stating: "The first place in which I remember to have seen the light was in the shop of an upholsterer in Fleet-street, in the days of bloody Queen Mary." Originally published anonymously, later editions name the author as J. W. Cunningham, A. M. Vicar of Harrow. John William Cunningham was and evangelical clergyman of the Church of England and, from 1850 to 1858 also served as the Editor of The Christian Observer. He served as Vicar of Harrow, the presentation to which his father-in-law purchased, from 1811 until his death in 1861, and was a member of the Clapham Sect of which two of the leading lights were William Wilberforce and Wilberforce's cousin, the important Banker and Parliamentarian, Henry Thornton. Presenting the evangelical point of view of the parties in the church of England since the English Reformation, The Velvet Cushion was quite well-received and went through ten editions in a mere two years. [Nevertheless, the book did not meet the approval of all and a response to this work was written by Rev. John Styles titled "A New Covering to the Velvet Cushion" (1815) wherein Rev. Styles gives his views on the Church presented through the same cushion with a new covering.] This rapid production of new editions of The Velvet Cushion evidences not only the book's popularity, but also indicates that not many copies of the first edition, first printing, were issued and, in our experience, the first edition, first printing is quite scarce. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing. QUITE SCARCE.

      Philadelphia: Published by G.E. Blake, [1814].. [published with:] THE BATTLE OF THE WABASH. A PATRIOT SONG, WRITTEN BY JOSEPH HUTTON, TO THE FAVOURITE AIR OF ANACREON IN HEAVEN. [3]pp. Folio. Dbd. Tanned, dampstain in upper margin. Good. In a brown half morocco and cloth box. The rare second edition of "The Star Spangled Banner," the national anthem of the United States, in music form. Here, all four verses of Francis Scott Key's immortal poem are printed on the third page. It is printed with a song originally published in 1811, "The Battle of the Wabash," written to commemorate the Battle of Tippecanoe. That song, as well as "The Star Spangled Banner," were meant to be sung to the tune of "Anacreon in Heaven," also known as the "Anacreontic Ode." This, therefore, is the first appearance of Key's lyrics, together with the music to which it was meant to be sung. As Dichter & Shapiro point out, this printing is also "the only appearance known of Francis Scott Key's immortal song together with the words of the 'Anacreontic Ode.'" The present printing follows only a Baltimore edition by Carrs Music Store, which is believed to have been issued before November 18, 1814, and possibly before October 19 (see Filby & Howard). Francis Scott Key, a Baltimore lawyer, spent the night of September 13-14, 1814, detained on a British ship in Baltimore harbor. That night, Key witnessed the British flotilla bombard Fort McHenry, an American stronghold in the harbor. From the outset of the battle a large American flag could be seen flying over the fort, but by the end the Stars and Stripes was nowhere to be seen. At dawn, the flag was seen once again, showing that Fort McHenry had not been taken by the British, and inspiring Key to write the lyrics that he initially called "Defence of Fort M'Henry." Key meant for the lyrics to be sung to the tune of a popular song of the day, the "Anacreontic Ode," also known as "To Anacreon in Heaven," by British composer John Stafford Smith. Key's lyrics first circulated as a handbill, and on September 20 were printed in a Baltimore newspaper. It soon became known as "The Star Spangled Banner," and was performed by Hardinge's theatre troupe in Baltimore on October 18, 1814. As is noted in the title, the song was "sung with great applause by Mr. Hardinge, at the Theatre Baltimore," suggesting that this publication dates to late 1814. Both this Philadelphia printing of "The Star Spangled Banner" and the Baltimore printing that precedes it are very rare. Two copies of the Baltimore printing have appeared at auction since 1967: the Streeter copy, which brought $23,000 in that year, and a copy that sold at Christie's in 2008 for $506,500. In that same time span, only one copy of this Philadelphia printing sold at auction, in 2002, when a copy at Christie's brought $15,600. OCLC and Filby & Howard together locate a total of only eleven copies of this Philadelphia printing. A rare and early printing of "The Star Spangled Banner," our national anthem, which stands second only to the flag as a symbol of the nation. DICHTER & SHAPIRO, p.36. FILBY &HOWARD, S8. LEVY & FULD, p.245. Muller, THE STAR SPANGLED BANNER, pp.52- 57. WOLF 8329A. BAL, p.247. OCLC 3823049.

        Essai Philosophique sur les Probabilites

      Paris, 1814. Second Enlarged Edition. Original pink marbled wrappers. Fine with some occasional spotty foxing. 8vo.,This Essai is the the separately issued introduction to the second edition of Laplace's, Theorie Analytique ... first published in 1812 and appearing with the important supplements and addenda as the second edition in 1814. Laplace's biographer in the DSB notes that this book has had a longer life and greater readership than any other work by the author. ' The reason for its continuing - indeed, its growing - success has clearly been the importance that probablility, statistics, and stochastic analysis have increasingly assumed in science, social science .... Inevitably, Laplace's technical writings have come to have the same sort of relation to the later development of the discipline of probability that, for example Newton's Principia matematica had to the later science of mechanics.

Profusely illustrated with copper and wood engravings and lithographed plates, including a fine folding lithographed plate with original hand-color depicting the "Great Fire of London in the Year 1666," and a folding copper-plate engraving on blue paper. From the publisher's Advertisement: "This edition is published without any Illustrations of prints whatever; but titles are printed, for the purchasers who choose to amuse themselves in the pursuit of illustrating; and an assortment of some hundreds of portraits, views, medals, and historical prints, may be had, together or separate, at the Publisher's." Though principally known as a naturalist, having produced the important works "British Zoology" and "History of Quadrupeds," Pennant's posthumous book on the history of London was also quite popular, going through a number of editions.

      London, printed for John Murray by W. Bulmer and Co., 1814.. SECOND EDITION 1814, small 4to, approximately 230 x 155 mm, 9 x 6 inches, 60 beautiful hand coloured engraved plates (including frontispiece), each facing a page of descriptive text, bound in full burgundy straight grained morocco, ornate gilt border to covers with inner blind border, gilt raised bands to spine, richly gilt in compartments, gilt title, gilt patterned board edges and inner dentells (turn ins), all edges gilt, yellow endpapers.

A very good tight copy. The plates show costumes and customs of the 18th century Ottoman Empire including Greeks, Albanians, Egyptians, Syrians, Tartars, etc plus eunuchs, odalisks, other women, servants, a musician, a Jew, dervishes, officers of the Janissaries, soldiers, a naval admiral, the grand vizier and a few tradesmen. First published in French and in English in 1802 as The Costumes of Turkey. Attributed to the French artist Octavien Dalvimart about whom little is known, in the Preface. It seems the text is by another, sometimes attributed to William Alexander, as one of the descriptions includes a comment made by Mons. Dalvimart. The English artist William Alexander (1767-1816) accompanied the Macartney Embassy to China in 1792 as draughtsman and in 1808 was appointed assistant keeper of antiquities in the British Museum. Colas 783; Abbey Travel II, No. 370 (reprint of edition of 1804).   MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        Federalists voice their opposition to the War of 1812

      The March 30, 1814 issue of the Columbian Centinel (Boston: William Burdick for Benjamin Russell), 4pp., 15\" x 20.75\". Marginal tears, folds and some toning. A terrific issue featuring an unusual and large front-page illustration of a sailing ship styled as, \"The good STRONG Ship Massachusetts,\" advocating the gubernatorial candidacy of Governor Caleb Strong of Massachusetts and promoting the \"Washington Policy\" as well as the Federalist slogans \"No War! No Embargo! No Conscription! [and] No Direct Taxes!\" The top left corner features a ballot headed \"PEACE NOMINATIONS\" listing the Federalist candidates for state offices. The paper is filled with political pieces including the resolutions of the Worcester County Meeting that declared Democratic suspicions that Strong wanted to secede from the Union, as \"a gross and unfounded calumny, and a libel upon the most enlightened and virtuous of our fellow citizens...\" Although Strong never openly advocated secession, he did open secret negotiati

        Travels In The Caucasus And Georgia: Performed In The Years 1806 And 1808, By Command Of The Russian Government

      Great reading! Very rare First English Edition, published in 1814 by Henry Colburn, London. First published in German, then this English edition, then French. This book has definitely been read and enjoyed many times but still presents a handsome façade. Large book, 421 pages, a newer leather spine laid over original 3/4 leather with marbled boards, new endpapers. Original part of the cover shows a lot of wear, scuffing, and fading, older leather corners rubbed and chipped. Spine looks almost new. Small library stamps on title and copyright pages. Title page has a couple tears that have been patched with pieces of clear tape, title page and about thirty following pages have creases, light foxing and occasional mold spots on pages, some light age-toning, p. 295 has a tear patched with paper. All pages very readable. A good, solid very rare copy of this classic ethnographic and linguistic exploration of a very intriguing part of the world. Julius Heinrich Klaproth (1783?"1835) was a German linguist, historian, ethnographer, author, orientalist and explorer. As a scholar, he is credited along with Jean-Pierre Abel-Rémusat, with being instrumental in turning East Asian Studies into scientific disciplines with critical methods.
