        Thirty Two Lithographic Impressions from Pen Drawings of Landscape Scenery

      Bath: Author By D REdman, 1814 Refurbished in 1/4 goatskin binding with traditional cloth covers, tidied up, rounding and backing, hand titled in real gold, new endpapers. A great looking book Very rare one of only fifty copies printed, illustrated title, advertisement, index, and 28 plates only, of 32, views around Bath, Wales, the Lake district and elsewhere, pen lithographs, some with monochrome ink washes, each c. 300*225mm, but the title 340*270mm, and the first plate 330*230mm, both folding. One plate on buff paper, all on thick wove paper supports, most inscribed with titles, in ink in a contemporary hand, verso one or two in pencil, one plate bound in upside down, another detached, surface dirt, a few with oil spots, occasional small surface losses to the opposing verso and slight creasing, lower left corner, later morocco, worn. ***Thomas Barker was one of the earliest English artists to see his work translated into lithography, contributing to Specimens of Polyautography, published in 1803, specifically to promote the process. Thirty two Lithographic Impressions was printed by DJ Redman, who established the first lithographic press outside London, in Bath. Barkers Forty Lithographic Impressions of rustic Figures, of a year earlier, and of which 200 copies were printed, was the first work by a single artist. Truly wonderful, very scarce. OCLC 4819500. Not listed on COPAC. Barker, painter and lithographer, was an enthusiastic pioneer in the new art of lithography, contributing to the first set of lithographs published in Britain in 1803, and in 1813 he produced his own series of forty Rustic Figures, printed in Bath by D. J. Redman. A year later Barker again collaborated with Redman to produce a set of thirty-two lithographs entitled Landscape Scenery. See ODNB for a full bio.

Den største og bedste udgave af 1700-tallets berømte bihåndbog, formet som breve antagelig til Charles Bonnet. Den blinde Sweitzer F. Huber gjorde mange bemærkelseværdige opdagelser vedrørende bihold og var et bemærkelsesværdigt eksempel på, hvordan man med mod og viljestyrke kan overvinde blindhed. Blandt andet beviste han, at bidronningen udvikles fra en arbejder larve. The, since his fifteen years, blind Swiss Huber was called "the father of modern bee science". He designed a famous beehive with movable "leaves" like pages in a book and proved that the bee-queen came from a worker larvae. Huber, who lost his sight in young age, exemplifies how a man of courage can triumph over blindness

        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 citizensÃ?" Although Strong never openly advocated secession, he did open secret negotiations with the governor of Nova Scotia offering a separate peace in return for the return of British-occupied territory in the District of Maine. The Treaty of Ghent ended the conflict before these talks bore any fruit.

        [respondenter]. Analecta ornithologica.

      A.a. I:1-2-II. Lund, litteris Berlingianis, (1814). 4:o. (2),16 + (2),17-30 + (2),31-42 s. Marmorerat pappbd med brandgul ryggtitel i skinn. Någon enstaka småfläck. Med Gunnar Brusewitz exlibris. Saknar 2 grav. plr som här bundits med i faksimil.. Marklin 2-4. Friesen s. 33 och 38. Gunnar Brusewitz har ägnat Nilsson ett kapitel i "Den nöjsamma nyttigheten" där han pekar på dennes betydelse som övergångsgestalt mellan två epoker: "Som yngling hade han studerat hos lärjungar till Linné och själv hade han undervisat och inspirerat unga vetenskapsmän, vilka skulle få betydelse för forskningen i vårt sekel." [...] "1814 publicerade Sven Nilsson - med Retzius' båda söner Anders Adolph och Carl Gustaf som respondenter - avhandlingen Analecta ornithologica. Den lilla skriften består av tre delar av vilka de två första behandlar Skånes 'motacillor' (vilket den tiden inte bara omfattade ärlorna utan också sångarna) samt 'brockfåglarna' - dvs vadarfåglarna. Här beskrivs den hökfärgade sångaren för första gången som svensk fågel. Det var Sven Nilssons första ornitologiska arbete och kanske bidrog det till att han fick ett treårigt privatstipendium på 200 riksdaler av den för naturvetenskapen ömmande greve H. G. Trolle Wachtmeister." Kontakten med Trolle Wachtmeister gav även Nilsson förmånen att kunna använda sig av dennes jägare för att kunna ta del av färskt studiematerial

        An unusual Massachusetts paper denouncing the Hartford Convention: "Three States, whose recourses, and exports consist only of potatoes, mules and grindstones, to think of giving laws to the Union, is so truly ridiculous, that we can scarcely refrain from laughing when we think of the project

      The November 23, 1814 edition of the Boston Patriot, (Published by Davis C. Ballard), 4pp, 14.5" x 19.75". Light chipping and tears at margins, light toning from dampstains. An unusual issue in that the front page of this decidedly Democratic organ bears a complex engraving lampooning the recently-called Hartford Convention entitled, "COMPARATIVE VIEW, of the AMERICAN CONFEDERATION with the Hartford Convention States." At once side we find the "American Union!!!" topped by an eagle and listing the American states and territories (save for three). To the right we find Massahusetts, Connectciut, and Rhode Island under the banner of the "HARTFORD CONVENTION" which is topped by a crown emblazoned with the words, "DIGNITY" and not so subtlety styled as a "BRITISH UNION." The article reads, in very small part: "It is a painful task to be obliged to expose the weakness of our own native State. But when deluded men advance sentiments of resistance and rebellion to the Union, and talk of their means and power to carry their threats into execution, it is a duty we are compelled to perform—to expose their weakness and want of means to carry their purposes into effect. Three States, whose recourses, and exports consist only of potatoes, mules and grindstones, to think of giving laws to the Union, is so truly ridiculous, that we can scarcely refrain from laughing when we think of the project. We question very much if Don Quixotte ever set out on a more foolish exploit than the Don Quixottes of the Hartford Convention…" The War of 1812 was deeply unpopular in New England as they depended greatly on overseas trade with Great Britain. By 1814, talk of secession abounded, though at the actual convention, held in the fall of 1814, there was little action taken on that front—despite the suspicions of their opponents. In the end, the convention of 26 delegates from Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Rhode Island, and Vermont, did not vote to secede, choosing instead to pass a series of resolutions to present in Washington designed to strengthen New England's position within the Union. When the Conventions' representatives arrived in Washington however, the news of Andrew Jackson's victory at New Orleans and the signing of the Treaty of Ghent had upstaged them and made their presence in the capital appear ridiculous and potentially subversive. The perceived subversion of the Hartford Convention coupled with the end of the War of 1812 marked the beginning of the end of the Federalist Party.

        Waverley; or, 'Tis Sixty Years Since. In Three Volumes. Vol. I. [Vol.II] [Vol. III]

      Edinburgh: Printed by James Ballantyne and Co. for Archibald Constable.. 1814 Antique-style half calf, spines decorated in gilt, gilt burgundy and brown morocco labels. Three volumes, octavo. [iv], 358, [2]; [iv], 370, [2]; [iv], 371 pp., complete with all three half-titles and subtitles, and the imprint leaves in the first two volumes (not required in third volume which has the imprint at foot of final leaf of text). Preliminary leaves browned, and a few stains in various places, but a very good, attractive copy. The first of the forty or so 'Waverley Novels' was the progenitor and has become the archetype of the historical novel throughout the world. At one blow Scott had established a new literary form; and the basic principles on which Waverley and all his subsequent novels have been disregarded only at the peril of artistic failure. Scott recognized that the historical novel has to guard against lapsing into the improbabilities of the 'gothick' novel …. as well as competing with the history books proper. He therefore wisely decided that the historical novel must be set against a factual background … but not to overload it with documentary details which would only retard and probably obscure the imaginary narrative …. The success of all the 'Waverley Novels' was instantaneous, not only in England and Scotland, but also in the United States where pirated editions, and in Europe where German and French translations, swamped the market" (Printing and the Mind of Man, 273).

Den sistnämnda bilden lagad i marginalen med obetydlig inverkan på den tecknade ramlinjen. Proveniens: Westins kusin, konstnärskollegan Olof Johan Södermark (1790-1848), därefter i arv. Litteratur: Bo Vahlne, Nyinredningen av Rosersbergs slott 1797-1818 (1988), s. 226-27 (jfr illustr.). En av bilderna (Christna Lärans förkunnande af Ansgarius) i ny ram, förgylld med bladguld. Syrafri passepartout. Den andra oinramad.. Teckningar till kormålningar för Rosersbergs slottskapell i samband med Karl XIII:s nyinredning av slottet 1797-1818. Väggmålningarna blev aldrig utförda men var tänkta att placeras över två igensatta sidofönster. Dessa teckningar utgör två olika alternativ för det ena fältet; under planeringen byttes nämligen Ansgarsbilden ut mot Olof Skötkonungs dop vid Husaby källa. Det andra fältet skulle föreställa Protestantiska Evangeliska Lutherska lärans antagande under Konung Gustaf I:s regering. Förklaringen till förändringen är troligen att Karl XIII önskade att två företrädare i den svenska regentlängden skulle spegla hans egna insatser för den andliga förnyelsen i landet (Vahlne s. 227). Att målningarna inte kom till utförande berodde antagligen på att Westin inte hann leverera dem till Karl XIII i tid, och att beställningen inte förnyades av den nye slottsherren, Karl XIV Johan. I Nationalmuseum resp. privat ägo har två teckningar till de slutligt valda motiven bevarats. De avbildas av Vahlne på s. 226-27 och kan vara de som ställdes ut på Konstakademien i Stockholm 1816. Föreliggande teckning av Olof Skötkonungs dop är uppenbarligen kalkerad på bilden som återges av Vahlne, men Ansgarsteckningen kan möjligen vara unik. På Rosersberg utförde hovmålaren Westin bl. a. Dagens stunder, fyra dörröverstycken med antikiserande figurer i Stora sängkammaren (1812-13)

        Travels to the Source of the Missouri River and Across the American Continent to the Pacific Ocean. performed by order of the Government of the United States, in the years 1804, 1805, and 1806. By Captains Lewis and Clarke [sic]. Published from the official report

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown, 1814. Quarto. (10 5/8 x 8 1/2 inches). Half-title, 1p. publisher's advertisement at end. 1 folding engraved map by Neele, five engraved plans on 3 plates. (Worm track to outer blank margins of leaves from 4E1 to the end, light marginal browning to the plan facing p.191). Contemporary marbled calf, carefully rebacked, the original gilt spine laid down, marbled edges. The first British edition of the great landmark of western exploration. First British (and first quarto) edition of the "definitive account of the most important exploration of the North American continent" (Wagner-Camp). The book describes the U.S. government-backed expedition to explore the newly- acquired Louisiana Purchase undertaken from 1804 to 1806 by ascending the Missouri to its source, crossing the Rocky Mountains, and reaching the Pacific Ocean. In total, the expedition covered some eight thousand miles in slightly more than twenty-eight months. They brought back the first reliable information about much of the area they traversed, made contact with the Indian inhabitants as a prelude to the expansion of the fur trade, and advanced by a quantum leap the geographical knowledge of the continent. The narrative was first published in Philadelphia in two octavo volumes in the same year as the present edition, and it has been reprinted many times since and indeed remains a perennial American bestseller. The large folding map of the West (by Neele after the Philadelphia edition map) recalls an extraordinary feat of cartography, accurately revealing much of the trans-Mississippi for the first time. Wheat notes that the map is almost identical to the Philadelphia version "except for a few minor variations." The observations in the text make it an essential work of American natural history, ethnography, and science, and it forms a worthy record of the first great U.S. government expedition. Copies of Lewis and Clark's work have become increasingly difficult to find, especially as Stephen Ambrose's excellent book, the Ken Burns documentary, and the expedition's bicentennial have further widened the already broad appeal of the book.

Illustrated with views drawn from nature by sir Richard Colt Hoare; and The village of Poggio¯, cm 16 x 23 circa (la parte figurata al filetto di riquadro), pi? margini bianchi, didascalia in inglese al margine inferiore. Gli Autori : Hoare (1758 - 1838) Smith (1749 - 1831). Disegnate da I. Smith e incise da Letitia Byrne, I. Powell e I. Linell. The watercolour of Elba is after a drawing executed by Sir Richard Colt Hoare Bart., when he visited Elba on the extended tour that he took to distract himself from the death of his wife in 1789. When the allies took the decision to exile Napoleon to Elba in 1814, Hoare gave his drawings of Elba to his former teacher 'Warwick' Smith, who worked these up into finished watercolours, which he then had engraved and published in order to capitalize on the sudden newsworthiness of the little-known island. The illustrated watercolour was engraved in the same direction, with minor differences of detail by Letitia Byrne, with a publication date of 24 June 1814, and used as the frontispiece to Hoare & Smith's ®A Tour through the Island of Elba¯. La veduta ®The Village of Poggio¯ was not used in the publication. Piacevoli vedutine animate dell'Isola d'Elba, ampiamente descrittive, con architetture, velieri e panorami.

        De l'esprit de conquête et de l'ursupation, dans leurs rapports avec la civilisation européenne.

      (Hannover, Hahn), (January), 1814. 8vo. Bound in a simple near cont. brown hcalf w. some wear. Some brownspotting. Old owner's name to title-page ("Hardÿ"). (2), VIII, 208 pp, 1 f. (errata). The very rare first edition of one of Constant's main political-philosophical works. Three other editions appeared later the same year (London, March and Paris, April and July). The work constitutes an exceedingly important work againt modern dictatorship, and a warm praise of liberalism. As one of the leading members of the liberal opposition to Napoleon and thereafter to the restored Bourbon monarchy, Constant caused great sensation with his political works. His "Spirit of Conquest and Usurpation" is one of his most famous and most important political works, and with the publication of it he becomes one of the first to view Bonapartism as a modern dictatorship. In this sensational and thought-provoking anti-Napoleon work Constant sets out to criticize the "spirit of conquest" (as a modern phenomenon), which has led to the formation of the "grand empire". According to Constant, this "spirit" destroys man's moral essence and contradicts modern liberal thought. The work is often yielded as being prophetic and nearly describing the Germany of Hitler. It bears a great resemblance to the dystopian world of Orwell's "1984", and it describes in detail what is wrong with modern man and the modern world.For Constant "Ursurpation" comes to mean the new, modern, manipulative Napoleonic dictatorship with its personalized and centralized power.In this work Constant warns man against conformity, outwardly as well as inwardly, and he speaks warmly in favor of liberal variety and diversity as opposed to totalitarian conformity.Constant also warns us against the anachronism of certain types of war. A useless was is the worst thing a government can expose the people to. With such a war everything will be jeopardized, -every sort of social guarantee, every form of liberty, every security, every fortune. It creates hatred and spite within the people and it corrupts the young generations. It only leads to destruction

Bulmer, [1814].] First edition, limited to 36 copies only; one of the great Dibdin rarities. Here we find Dibdin in the guise of bookseller. In October 1814 Dibdin managed to purchase for 500 guineas from the Dean and Chapter of Lincoln Cathedral six volumes containing 19 titles, mostly black-letter rarities including four Caxtons. Within a month, Dibdin produced the present catalogue. "The well-turned archness of the title and the enthusiasm of the descriptions, the use of the best printer in England and the small limitation, the quality and the rarity of the books...and the standing in the book world of the celebrated author of Bibliomania, were carefully chosen ingredients which made The Lincolne Nosegay the most exclusive bookseller's catalogue ever issued. It may perhaps be more aptly termed a private auction catalogue, for it is unpriced, but the distinction is not important. More important is the limitation of edition as the measure of Dibdin's influenceable circle of friends and maximum targeted sales audience: thirty-one in the Roxburghe Club, including himself, and five spare copies...It is therefore not surprising that the Nosegay became a highly-prized collector's bijou -- a joy to possess and a frustration not to possess...The Nosegay has remained a rare and attractive relic of its age."-Rabaiotti, "Beckford's A Dialogue in the Shades and Dibdin's The Lincolne Nosegay" in The Book Collector, Summer 1989, pp. 212-13.

        Letter, signed ("Le Gnl. Cmt. Dupont") as Minister of War under the provisional government, to MarEchal 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. (NAPOLEON) Folio. 1 p., on letterhead of "MinistËre de la Guerre". Some very slight waterstaining affecting a few letters, otherwise very good, handsomely mounted and framed . 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 NapolEon, 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 NapolEon's military leaders: [in translation] "Monsieur le MarEchal; - 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.
