Jane Austen
Condition: Very Good. Books are mostly "very good" with lots of BRAND NEW and some that are well-read. Some are SIGNED BY AUTHOR and some are "uncorrected advance proof" collectibles. There's a back story here to how this collection came to be assembled. Read on for the full information! This is the biggest collection of Pride and Prejudice sequels, prequels, and retellings ever assembled. It features 200-plus different titles. These are all books that are related to Jane Austen's classic story. There are lots of retellings (the Pride & Prejudice story from a different character's perspective, for instance, or the story set in a different time period). Some are alternate versions (for example: What would have happened if Elizabeth had said "yes" to Darcy's original proposal?). Several books are "overlay stories" (they use the original Austen text but add to the story--examples are the addition of pets wherein Elizabeth is a crazy cat lover, or several stories that add steamy love scenes to the original version). Many others are prequels (what happened in the characters' lives leading up to the arrival of Bingley and his traveling entourage at the start of the novel). Lots are sequels (often following one of the characters beyond the closing notes that Jane Austen provided). And some defy any attempt at categorization or explanation. Seriously. Some of these "Pride & Prejudice re-examined" stories are things you'd never dream of! You'll receive a total of 214 titles: spoofs, risque versions, supernatural and science fiction versions, several multi-book series, love stories, … [Click Below for Full Description]

*** Important Jefferson Book*** Hall, John E., ed: THE AMERICAN LAW JOURNAL. VOL. V.... Baltimore. 1814. xii, 299pp. Half antique calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, leather label. Light toning. Some light foxing to title page, else very good. Owner's stamp shown in photo 4. An important volume of the AMERICAN LAW JOURNAL, reprinting Thomas Jefferson's THE PROCEEDINGS OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES, IN MAINTAINING THE PUBLIC RIGHT TO THE BEACH OF THE MISSISSIPPI, ADJACENT TO NEW ORLEANS and the reply to Jefferson, Edward Livingston's AN ANSWER TO MR. JEFFERSON'S JUSTIFICATION OF HIS CONDUCT IN THE CASE OF THE NEW ORLEANS BATTURE. The Jefferson and Livingston pamphlets address one of the bitter controversies of Jefferson's presidency. Livingston, a prominent New Orlean's attorney, claimed ownership of a strip of beach (the batture) at New Orleans which had long been used as a common boat landing. Jefferson asserted ownership up to the high-water mark and had a federal Marshall forcibly dispossess Livingston. The case became a celebrated case of the use of federal power and continued to be bitterly argued, so much so that Jefferson felt constrained, four years after leaving the presidency, to present his legal reasoning in a pamphlet, one of only three full-scale works published under his name during his lifetime. This was first published in 1812, and appears here in an augmented edition, with corrections and additions supplied by Jefferson for this printing. The status of the Livingston piece is more complicated. An edition with a Philadelphia, 1813 title page is ge … [Click Below for Full Description]

SADE Donatien Alphonse François, Marquis de & ANONYME
Unpublished manuscript written in an unknown hand, probably that of one of the Marquis' scribes. Crossings-out and strikethroughs by the scribe and 7 annotations and strikethroughs by the Marquis de Sade.Provenance: family archives.Very important preparatory manuscript for the Voyage d'Italie, in which the young Marquis de Sade, under the cover of a study of the Roman judicial system, develops the great philosophical themes of his future novels.The first leaf of the manuscript is missing; the Marquis did not retain it during the different stages in which he developed his text. We know this because the notebook was found in this state when his chest, which had been kept sealed by the family since his death in 1814, was opened in 1948. This fine unpublished manuscript attests to Sade's meticulous method of working. When preparing to write his Voyage d'Italie, Sade initially received assistance from several correspondents, notably Mesny and Iberti, two friends whom he had met on his travels. The Marquis used the very detailed notes contained in their letters, put them in order, and then drafted the text of his future publication with the help of a scribe. Our manuscript falls within this third and penultimate working stage, before the final polishing of the text.Le Voyage d'Italie, a vast encyclopedic project in which the Marquis de Sade strove to depict both the country's architectural and artistic monuments and its habits and customs, is a hybrid text made up of book reviews, personal observations, and information gleaned from various correspondents in Italy.

Nolan, Michael
A. Strahan for J. Butterworth and Son, London, 1814. "The third edition, with considerable additions."… Three volumes… Octavo (8” x 5”, 204mm x 128mm)… Bound in contemporary calf, with blind diamond-and-circle roll border on the boards. On the spine, seven blind fillets. Title piece gilt to red crushed morocco. Number blind. Generally scuffed, with some worn patches on the spines of each volume. Fore-corners a little bumped, with some worn (esp. vol. 3). Several hinges cracked, though generally strong; the front board of vol. 1 is a little tender. Initial and final pages toned from the turn-downs. Vol. 1, P1 missing a small chunk of the lower fore-corner, not affecting text. The text-block however is good and clean with very light and fairly rare foxing. A good reading set. On the first free end-paper of each volume, ownership signature of the “Bibliothà que des Crà nà es,” i.e., the library of the Chateau des Crà nà es (built 1855-1859) in Mies, Switzerland. Below that signature on the first two volumes, the ownership signature of David R. Hunter (Geneva, 1949). Nolan, born in Ireland (ca. 1765), was a lawyer who had a special interest in the legal remedies to poverty in the United Kingdom. The first edition of the Treatise (1805), really a hand-book for those administering the Poor Laws â€" which were passed originally in the mid-XVIc, stoked interest in reform to the Elizabethan statutes. The Corn Laws of 1814 kept the price of grain and thus of bread artificially high, which exacerbated the plight of the poor. It is into this atmosphere that Nolan, who wou … [Click Below for Full Description]

"I stand responsible for my own acts only. [Secretary of War John Armstrong] claims credit for the measures which had been taken for defense of this place. Those measures were not proposed by him but the President...."James Monroe, then Secretary of State, led a scouting expedition in August 1814 that revealed the British marching towards the nation's capital. His warning allowed President James Madison to evacuate and save America's founding documents. In the face of criticism, Monroe here discusses his role, trying to avoid blame for the crushing loss and destruction of the Capitol.JAMES MONROE.Autograph Letter Signed as Secretary of State, to [Charles Everett], Washington, D.C., September 16, 1814. 2 pp., 7½ x 10 in.Complete TranscriptWashington Sepr 16 1814Dear Sir I receivd yours of the 14 yesterday.

London J. Harris Nov. 20. FIRST EDITION 1814, 12mo, 130 x 107 mm, 5 x 4¼ inches, original drab thin card wraps, printed paper label on upper cover: "Harris's Cabinet " at top, "One Shilling Coloured" below with space between for handwritten title, the original ink had faded and a later owner has re-written the title over it, engraved title page and 14 of 15 engraved numbered leaves, each printed 1 side only, LACKING IS THE FINAL LEAF 15 AND THE LOWER COVER. The final leaf has been supplied in coloured facsimile and the lower cover neatly replaced at some time by a pink cover of the same period and weight. Each leaf has a large very nicely hand coloured copper engraving with an 8 line verse below telling the story. Jerry and Kitty court, get married and have a baby, then they tire of each other and decide to go travelling. Leaf 15 shows them on a boat and Jerry pushing his wife overboard to drown. This was probably considered not quite suitable for children by some parents, who thoughtfully removed and destroyed the leaf, although no doubt most children would have enjoyed the grim ending to the tale. Spine missing, label lightly browned, early name and date on upper cover, some early writing on inside of cover and blank side of title page (title is on verso of first leaf), last line of verse on page 4 is trimmed off, contents clean and bright. A defective copy of an uncommon pretty hand coloured juvenile book (1 leaf in facsimile, lower cover replaced as noted). Moon No. 169; Osborne Volume I, page 58.

MONTAGU Basil
1814. 5 engraved plates showing the dangers of drink adapted from famous works by H. Dawe and William Hopwood. First edition. 8vo., contemporary half black roan, marbled boards with gilt rules and gilt lettering on spine, some rubbing but a handsome, satisfying copy which has been perhaps little overtrimmed with slight affect on the titles of a few of the plates. London, J. Johnson. The book takes the form of a series of quotations and extracts from noted writers, doctors, clergymen, politicians &c. both ancient and modern to prove the case against the evils of drink. Drinking practices both at home and abroad are cited, including extracts about the drinking of Kava in the Friendly Islands from Captain Cooks Third Voyage.Included is Charles Lamb's Confessions of a Drunkard, reprinted here without permission and without acknowledgement.Basil Montagu ((1770-1851) was the son of the fourth Earl of Sandwich and his murdered mistress Martha Ray. He was an intimate friend of both Coleridge and Wordsworth and with them was an enthusiastic admirer of the French Revolution. As a lawyer he campaigned heavily for legal and political reform, particularly in the area of the bankruptcy laws. He was a passionate reformer in other areas too and wrote essays on the abolition of the death penalty, the emancipation of the Jews, the separation of powers and on the advisability of temperance. The publication of this book on temperance may well have been provoked by Coleridge as he had gone to live with the Montagus in 1810, a situation which ended because Coleridge's dissolute lifestyle was too … [Click Below for Full Description]

St. Paul's School (London, England).
Ex officinâ Johannis Nichols et Sociorum, 1814. John Colet (1467?-1519), Dean of St. Paul's, seems in 1508 to have begun to think about "apply[ing] his patrimony to education by the reconstitution of St Paul's Cathedral school in new premises, reflecting a preoccupation with education as prerequisite for spiritual regeneration" (DNB online). He "opened the doors to St Paul's School in 1509 to educate boys 'from all nacions and countres indifferently'" (St. Paul's School website). Elegantly bound and handsomely printed, this is the first edition of this collection for use of the boys of the school and is comprised of "Preces quotidianae ut celebrantur in scholâ Paulina" and "Catechismus, cum ordine Confirmationis." The prayers were first published in 1642 and are in Latin, while the catechism is in Greek (on versos of leaves) and Latin opposite (on rectos). The engraved frontispiece portrait of Colet is by J[ohn] T[aylor] Wedgwood (1783-1856), a cousin of Josiah Wedgwood. Provenance: Late 19th-century bookplate of the Rev. George H. Culshaw; most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear. Binding: Contemporary green straight-grain goat, spine gilt extra; both boards with a gilt double-rule outer border and an inner center frame of single gilt rule with large gilt corner devices. Board edges with a gilt roll; narrow turn-ins with a different gilt roll. All edges gilt. Searches of WorldCat locate only six U.S. libraries (IU, NjNbT, PPiT, IEN, NNC, NNG) reporting ownership.

A manuscript journal of a 'Grand Tour,' beginning in Milan in October 1814, and travelling through Parma, Bologna, Florence, Leghorn (Livorno), Lake Perugia, Rome, Naples.

The School-Virgil is the last children's book to appear with a Newbery imprint. The illustrations are designed as mnemonic devices, and were intended to supplement the 1812 first edition of Thornton.

Howitt, S.; Atkinson; Clark; Manskirch; etc.
London: Edward Orme. Printed by J. F. Dove, 1814, 1813. First edition. Full Calf. Very Good. 4to. 28 by 22 cm. Unpaginated. 110 hand-colored plates. 107 of these are aquatints, two are line engravings, and one, a stipple and line engraving. Second title page for the New South Wales section. Each plate accompanied by one to four pages of explanatory text -- most are one or two pages long, though. The plates and the stories they tell are immensely varied in both the geographic location of the scenes and the type of hunting depicted. Not only are all continents represented, but also, such activities as whalehunting are included. Animals are shown in their own hunts, and even pursuing humans as well. One such plate, for instance, shows men desperately climbing a tree to escape a rhinoceros and as their horses panic. These plates were justly celebrated for their exciting drama and dynamism. A small sampling of other scenes: South American peons capturing bulls, then horses; Russians fishing in winter; Mamalukes wielding the sabre; sailors shooting wild deer; elephants in a pitfall; a Hindu elephant trap; shooting a leopard; wild boar shooting in Germany; hunting antelopes with a panther; taking vipers; seal catching in Greenland; and on and on. The New South Wales plates concern aborigines, and they show aborigines as warriors as well as hunting and fishing. Binding: contemporary diced Russia calf. Tooled in gilt. Edges marbled. Condition: rebacked, with original spine pasted on -- binding comes off as original throughout. Heavy rubbing alon … [Click Below for Full Description]

This invention formed the basis of slide rules that were common in schools and universities, until the calculator age over 150 years later. In 1815, the Royal Society elected Roget as an official fellow."In 1815 (1814) Dr. Peter M. Roget invented his "log-log" slide rule for performing the involution and evolution of numbers. The fixed scale, instead of being divided blogarithmically, is divided into lenghts which are proportional to the logarithm of the logarithm of the number indicated on the scale; the sliding scale is divided logarithmically. By employing this new method of graduation, the value of any expression of the form y(potens x) may be obtained by the same mechanical process as that by which yx is obtained in the ordinary slide rule...All problems such as those of compound interest, increase of population, etc., are solved in this manner by mere inspection."(Encycl. Britannica).

Türkei. - Griffith, John:
Leipzig: Hinrichs;, 1814. ca. 21 x 12,5 cm. 5 Bll., 125 S.; 154 S. Mit 3 (2 gefalt.) teils grenzkol. Kupf.-Karten u. 1 gefalt. kol. Kupf.-Ansicht. Ppd. d. Zt. mit Rückenschildchen. Rücken beschabt. Kanten und Ecken bestossen. Stadtansicht etw. stockfleckig. Sonst guter Zustand. Das Stadtpanorama zeigt die "Ansicht des kaiserlichen Schlosses der sieben Thürme zu Constantinopel" (sign. Riedel 1803). - Erste und einzige deutsche Übersetzung dieser interessanten Reisebeschreibung des Engländers Griffith (Beginn der Reise: 1785). Die Stärke dieser Beschreibung liegt in der subjektiven Beobachtung; Griffith reiste ua. als "armer Grieche", was ihm z.B. erlaubte, Armenviertel zu besuchen, die ein Europäer sonst nicht zu Gesicht bekommen hätte. Ferner ist er in der Lage, durch seine ständige "Tarnung" einigen muslimischen Bräuchen beizuwohnen oder Moscheen zu besichtigen bzw. die für die Öffentlichkeit bestimmten Teile des Serails (Herrscherpalasts). Die über ein Jahr dauernde Reise ging zu Schiff durch die Dardanellen, über Land durch die Türkei, oder auch in Begleitung einer Karavane durch das heutige Syrien und dem Irak nach Basra. Auch hier liegen stets die persönlichen Beobachtungen und Interessen an Sitten und Gebräuche der Einheimischen über denen der Landschafts- bzw. Ortsbeschreibungen. Sprache: deutsch.
