Royal octavo, contemporary full dark red straight-grain morocco, gilt-decorated spine, raised bands, all edges gilt. $1500.First octavo edition of this collection of 60 lovely hand-colored aquatint images of Turkish occupations and costumes at the end of the 18th century, in contemporary morocco-gilt.The Costume of Turkey (1804) was one of a series of six folio costume books featuring foreign dress published by William Miller in the early 19th-century, with hand-colored stipple-engraved plates after drawings made in 1798 by Octavien d'Alvimart. In 1814, publisher John Murray bought out Miller's plate-book business, and issued a series of seven costume books in royal octavo, including the present volume on Turkey, which has reproduced the 60 plates in slightly smaller size using aquatint (rather than stipple-engraving) and hand-coloring. Each plate is accompanied by an explanation of the figure's role in society or in the Turkish court, with notes on details of dress, and was written by Miller or possibly by William Alexander, as in the folio first edition.

        Sir Roger De Coverley

      1814. STEELE, Richard and ADDISON, Joseph. Sir Roger De Coverley. Reprinted from The Spectator. London: Sampson Low, circa 1900. Square 12mo, contemporary full burgundy morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spine and covers, multi-color inlaid morocco cover illustration of Sir Roger de Coverley, raised bands, all edges gilt. $2200.Later edition of one of the leading series by two of the most famous 18th-century British periodical essayists, with illustrations by Chas. O. Murray, beautifully bound in a morocco-gilt Kelliegram binding with a detailed multi-color morocco cover inlay of Sir Roger De Coverley.“The periodical essayÂ… reached its acme of achievement early in the 18th century in the work of Richard Steele and Joseph Addison.” Together, The Guardian, The Spectator and The Tatler “helped to form the taste and to shape the morals and manners of countless generations in Britain and abroad” (John Calhoun Stephens). Sir Roger de Coverley was one of Steele and AddisonÂ’s most noteworthy achievements. Created in The Spectator in 1711 by the writing team, Sir Roger de Coverley was said to be an English squire of Queen AnneÂ’s reign. His name was immediately familiar to readers as it was also the name of a well-known English/Scottish country dance. The writers explained the coincidence by making de Coverley the great-grandson of the danceÂ’s inventor. Sir Roger was intended to embody the values and display the mannerisms of an old country gentleman, which allowed his Tory politics to be portrayed as silly and outdated while the character himself remained beloved by the public. He swiftly became one of Steele and AddisonÂ’s most popular creations. With original covers bound in at rear. A few spots of foxing to text, crease to front free endpaper, expert repair to front joint. A near-fine copy, beautifully bound.

With Memoirs of his Life and Writings, Composed by Himself: Illustrated from his Letters, with Occasional Notes and Narrative by John Lord Sheffield. London: John Murray, 1814. Five volumes. Octavo, contemporary full brown calf gilt, raised bands, marbled endpapers and edges. $1500.Second edition of GibbonÂ’s miscellaneous works, greatly expanded from the first, with engraved frontispiece portrait, four engraved plates and folding genealogical chart, handsomely bound.After GibbonÂ’s death in 1794, his closest friend, Lord Sheffield, collected and published these letters, notes, diaries, fragments, essays and autobiography, carefully editing them so that his late friend would not be exposed to uncomplimentary public scrutiny. In his preface, Lord Sheffield wrote, “Few men, I believe, have ever so fully unveiled their own character, by a minute narrative of their sentiments and pursuits, as Mr. GibbonÂ… not with study and labour— not with an affected frankness— but with a genuine confession of his little foibles and peculiarities, and a good-humoured and natural display of his own conduct and opinions.” Lord Sheffield forbade in his will the publication of any additional papers. The first edition was published in two quarto volumes in 1796. “About 1807 Lord Sheffield began to work on a second editionÂ… It is not clear why another seven years elapsed before the second edition was publishedÂ… [Though projected to run six volumes,] there were in fact five octavo volumes, containing the old and the new matter rearranged”—as here—“and one quarto volume containing the new matter separately [thus the first editionÂ’s publication dates are often cited as 1796-1815]Â… The five volumes, though dated 1814 on the titles, were not actually issued until early in 1815” (Norton, 192-5). Norton, 200. Lowndes, 886. Armorial bookplates.Scattered light foxing, light expert restoration to handsome calf bindings.

        John Adams Thanks Thomas Clark for a Copy of His Naval History, and Supports His Proposal to Publish a History of the United States

      [Mass.] 1814 - Autograph Letter Signed "John Adams" to Thomas Clark. Quincy, [Mass.], January 25, 1814, 1p. 8 x 9 3/4 in. John Adams thanks a prominent historian for the copy of two volumes of Naval History of the United States from the Commencement of the Revolutionary War. Written during the last year of the War of 1812, Clark's book remains as one of the greatest texts of American naval prowess. Complete TranscriptQuincy Jan 25, 1814Sir I thank you for your polite and obliging Letter of the 17th, and for the Copy in two volumes of The Naval History of the United States, and for several Copies of your Proposals for publishing A History of U.S. The Plan is ample and judicious, and I wish you every Encouragement in the execution of it. Mr. Trumbull of Connecticutt [sic] has published a general History of this Country. I have not Seen it since it was printed. It is probably familiar to you. I am so ill at present that I cannot enlarge. Your Proposals shall be distributed to the best of my Judgment. I have given one to the modest Gentleman who would not allow his name to appear, and told him at the same time, Contemptu Famae, Fama Augetur. Farewell John AdamsThomas Clark Esquire/ No. 37 South Second Street /Philadelphia.Adams' closing can be roughly translated: "contempt of fame increases notoriety." It draws upon a favorite quote by Tacitus, "Contemptu Famae, contemni Virutem," which Adams translated in an early diary as "Contempt of Fame generally begets or accompanies a Contempt of Virtue."Historical BackgroundJohn Adams writes to naval historian Thomas Clark and suggests Adams' renowned stature as "Father of the American Navy." During the Revolution, when the Continental Congress hoped that a small naval force could help offset the uncontested exercise of British sea power, Adams championed the founding legislation that called for fitting out armed vessels for national service, as well as the creation of a Marine Committee to oversee naval affairs. Before year's end, again in large part due to Adams' lobbying, Congress authorized the construction of a fleet. It was Adams who drafted the first set of rules and regulations for the new navy, a point of pride with him for as long as he lived. In addition, Adams rigorously studied naval armaments and strategy. He would call his "work on the naval committee the pleasantest part of his labors. In the advocacy of sea defenses he stood second to none."John Adams (1735-1826), a lawyer and early supporter of the independence movement, defended the British soldiers accused of the Boston Massacre. In the Continental Congress, he helped Jefferson and Franklin draft the Declaration of Independence, which he signed. As Washington's Vice President, he founded the Federalist Party. Elected President in 1796, his term was marked by events such as the XYZ Affair with France and passage of the Alien and Sedition Acts. In his retirement, he carried on an extensive correspondence, and saw his son, John Quincy Adams, elected as the sixth President.Thomas Clark served in the War of 1812 as a captain of engineers who employed the defenders of the Delaware River. His Naval History first appeared in 1813. Soon after, Adams wrote Thomas Jefferson, "Have you seen the Naval History by Mr. Clark, published by Mathew Carey at Philadelphia? I wish I had time and Eyes and fingers to write much to you on this Subject." (Adams, May 29, 1813). Jefferson subsequently wrote Clark with suggestions for an expanded edition. On its publication in January, 1814, Jefferson praised the work for "ensuring to us the preservation of the facts as they occur." In Clark's preface to the first edition, he warmly "acknowledged the valuable assistance of John Adams." In his preface to the 1814 edition, Clark again spoke of Adams, while also regretting that it was only the "want of proper documents, and the hurry of the work" that prevented him from pursuing Jefferson's suggestions regarding the Tripolitan.

The book on English costumes is the only one of the five that was probably not illustrated by Alexander, though the format is consistent with that of the other four.

William Alexander (1767-1816) was the first keeper of Prints and Drawings in the British Museum, who had gone out as junior draughtsman with Lord Macartney's embassy. "Alexander was an excellent draughtsman, and his illustrations are of considerable value" (Prideaux, p. 250). Colas 75 and 78. Hiler, p. 16 (lists all five under Alexander).

        Voyage to Abyssinia

      1814. First Edition . (EAST AFRICA) SALT, Henry. A Voyage to Abyssinia, and Travels into the Interior of that Country, ExecutedÂ… in the Years 1809 and 1810. London: F.C. and J. Rivington, 1814. Large quarto, contemporary full diced brown calf rebacked, black morocco spine label, raised bands, original marbled endpapers and edges. $4800.First edition of this fascinating travel narrative, chronicling SaltÂ’s expeditions across Egypt and Ethiopia, illustrated with two vignettes and 34 splendid copper-engraved plates and maps (four folding, one hand-colored), in contemporary calf boards.The renowned English diplomat archaeologist Henry Salt initially studied as a painter, and it was his artistic talents that “recommended him to the collector George Annesley, Viscount of Valentia, who took him on a tour of the East in 1802-06, during which he visited Egypt, Ethiopia and India. In 1809-10 Salt returned to Ethiopia as a quasi-official envoy under CanningÂ’s sponsorship, marching from the Red Sea coast with an escort of 160 bearers to explore trade and diplomatic links with the Ethiopian emperor Wolde Selassie. Britain, fearing a French alliance with Egypt, wished to secure a port on the Red Sea. Salt carried out a little archaeology, discovering at Aksum three large Ethiopian inscriptions,” and documenting his work in this impressive volume (Howgego II:S6). SaltÂ’s role in three key excavations (Belzoni, Caviglia, and dÂ’Athanasi) yielded splendid collections of Egyptian antiquities, many of which are now in the British Museum (Clayton, 44). In 1815 Salt was appointed Consul-General in Egypt and a year later, together with John Burckhardt, employed Giovanni Baptista Belzoni to remove the colossal bust of Rameses II from Thebes (now also in the British Museum). For this Salt was hailed as “the second Lord Elgin.” Voyage to Abyssinia includes “particulars respecting the aboriginal African tribes, extending from Mosambique to the borders of Egypt” and a lengthy glossary of local languages. The numerous full-page illustrations are made by Charles Heath from original sketches by Salt, and include “perhaps the earliest printed illustration of hippo shooting” (Czech), which took place on the River Tacazzi. Blackmer 1479. Gay 184. Czech, African Big Game Hunting, 141. Old bookbinder ticket to front pastedown.Large folding hand-colored map reinforced along fold on verso, infrequent spotting to text. A very good copy in an attractive binding.

Other editions were published in London and Edinburgh in 1762, but both are selections only. One of his most famous works and his first work of real importance, Tales and Novels follows the stories of Boccaccio, Marguerite, and other renowned literary storytellers whose subjects concerned “light love, the misfortunes of husbands, the cunning of wives, [and] the breach of their vows by ecclesiastics.” Bookplates.Expert restoration to paper spines; small piece of lower boards and margin of last seven leaves of first volume nibbled.

        Neue Blumenstraüsse, oder Muster zur feinen Stickkunst.Nuremberg, Joh. Bernh. Geyer, [1814]. Oblong folio (24 x 37 cm). Samplebook of flower engravings comprising title-plate with wreath of flowers, and 5 sample plates with 6 engravings, the plates numbered [1], 2-6. Hand-coloured. Contemporary marbled wrappers with engraved orange title-label.

      KVK (1 copy); neither artist nor book in ADB; Nagler; Nissen, BBI; Thieme & Becker; WorldCat. First instalment (of two) of a beautiful and very rare engraved sample-book of flowers by the artist Caroline von Freudenberg, apparently a commercial flower artist in Nuremberg, and the engraver (Georg Friedrich?) Vogel. On the title-page, the artist's name, title, engraver's name and imprint are engraved in a wreath of flowers showing a wide variety of types and colours, leaves 2 to 3 show three examples of flowers arranged to form bands as they might be to make a floral border, leaves 4 to 5 show bouquets and leaf six shows roses in a neoclassical vase. The book calls itself "New Bouquet, or Samplebook of fine Engraving", and probably served to show publishers what sort of decorative flower engravings they could order from the artist and engraver. Some foxing, mostly in the margins, and with the five sample plates detached as a block. Very good copy.

Essi sono preceduti da una copia manoscritta delle 12 pagine di Chateaubriand prefazione a un'edizione collettiva dei suoi opuscoli pubblicati nel 1817. Dentu in altri due piastrine seguire, uno per Fitz-James, molto vicino al punto di vista di Chateaubriand e sottolinea l'autore se stesso in un punto, e l'altra Frenilly sulla storia del 1815 in Francia. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Editions originales. Rare réunion de 5 plaquettes de Chateaubriand se rapportant aux diverses périodes de la Restauration. Elles sont précédées d'une copie manuscrite d'époque des 12 pages de la préface de Chateaubriand à une édition collective de ses pamphlets parue chez Dentu en 1817. Deux autres plaquettes suivent, l'une par Fitz-James, très proche des opinions de Chateaubriand ainsi que l'auteur le souligne lui-même dans une remarque, et l'autre de Frenilly sur l'histoire de l'année 1815 en France. De la monarchie selon la charte se trouve en seconde édition, édité par Les amis du roi. Reliure en demi basane brune d'époque. Dos lisse orné de roulettes. Pièce de titre en basane glacée havane mouchetée. Habile restauration en coiffes et mors. Manque au coin droit bas de la p. 39 premier texte. Manque en marge de la p. 45. du 4e texte. Les deux premiers textes pamphlétaires de Chateaubriand sont violemment à charge contre l'empereur Napoléon et la Révolution française et relatent la première Restauration et les fameux "Cent jours". Le fameux Rapport sur la France fut envoyé au roi Louis XVIII alors que Chateaubriand était membre de son Cabinet à Gand. A peine nommé ministre d'état, Chateaubriand publie De la monarchie selon la charte qui lui vaut une disgrâce retentissante, il perd alors son ministère et rentre dans l'opposition ultraroyaliste après avoir défendu la monarchie. Chateaubriand regagnera la confiance du roi progressivement et recevra le ministère des affaires étrangères mais il s'engagera peu à peu dans le parti libéral. Les autres textes constituent des reflexions sur la monarchie, la mort de Louis XVI, et la situation de la France laissée par l'Empire. La plaquette de fremilly concerne également la première Restauration et le retour de Napoléon. L'ensemble constitue un témoignage proche de ce que fut le coup d'état de Bonaparte après la première Restauration, et l'histoire de cette dernière, par des personnes opposées totalement à Napoléon Bonaparte ; il est également précieux pour l'histoire politique de Chateaubriand.
