BYRON, George Gordon Noel, Lord
London: John Murray,, 1814. A Tale. Octavo (224 × 140 mm). Near-contemporary blue straight-grain morocco, titles to spine gilt in compartments, gilt frame to covers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, marbled endpapers. Bookplate of Sir Henry Francis Redhead Yorke to the front pastedown. Spine slightly sunned, very slight rubbing to extremities, occasional foxing, internally very clean with handsome margins, an excellent copy. First edition, second issue, early variant with 100 pages, and handsomely bound, preserving the half-title. It was immediately successful, selling an unprecedented 10,000 copies on the day of publication. The second issue was extended to 108 pages to accommodate six additional poems, from 100 pages in the first issue; however, Wise notes that after page 100 had been amended, and before the new half-sheet was ready, urgent demand for the book compelled the printers to put the amended sheets into wrappers "without waiting for the completion of the two formes with the additional six poems and sonnets". These copies, as seen here, concluded on page 100, without "The End" and the imprint on the final page. Byron's influential verse play concerning the adventures of Conrad, a pirate and archetypical misanthropic (but philogynic) Byronic anti-hero, later inspired a Verdi opera, a Berlioz overture, and an Adolphe Adam ballet.

FLINDERS, Matthew
W. Bulmer and Co, London 1814 - Complete set of the Flinders account, comprising: two volumes large quarto, with nine steel-engraved plates after William Westall, the half-titles present; and elephant folio atlas with 11 double-page and 5 full-page charts, 2 double-page plates of coastal views and 10 botanical plates after Ferdinand Bauer; in uniform later half calf. One of the greatest of all classics of Australian exploration and discovery and scarce on the market: a particularly handsome set, all volumes uncut with large margins and the atlas in the preferred and rare largest format allowing the Bauer plates to be bound in unfolded. Flinders' classic account of his voyage on board the Investigator records the full-scale expedition to discover and explore the entire coastline of Australia (which was the name that Flinders himself preferred and championed). The three volumes form a complete narrative of the expedition, including an authoritative introductory history of maritime exploration in Australian waters from the earliest times. The text contains a day-by-day account of the Investigator voyage and Flinders' later voyages on the Porpoise and the Cumberland. Robert Brown's "General Remarks, geographical and systematical, on the Botany of Terra Australis", which is illustrated by Ferdinand Bauer's botanical plates in the atlas, is printed as an appendix in the second volume.The text is illustrated by nine engraved plates and two double-page plates of coastal views in the atlas by the landscape painter William Westall, who travelled as official artist on the voyage.

[GAMES - COSTUMES].
Cf. Gumuchian 3229 bis. Beautifully designed and skilfully executed game, drawn in gouaches and watercolour, comprising a colour portrait of a young man and 19 cut-out costume drawings in bright colours (including their associated hats or crowns) that can be overlaid on the portrait to dress the man to suit any of 19 different professions or titles: a sort of metamorphosis game of ranks and professions. It was probably intended both as entertainment and education for children and as a pastime for adults (especially women?). Eleven drawings have contemporary or near contemporary manuscript captions on the back in English, identifying the profession, military rank, title or ethnic group associated with the costume, and some of the others can be identified. Two of costumes are explicitly labelled as an English and a French style of "dress for the year 1814" and another is labelled "Member of the Whix Club 1814". The portrait is very slightly foxed, one costume drawing has lost its hat, the left margin has been torn off another without affecting the drawing (though the hat has been reattached), and there are a couple very minor tears or bent parts, but further in very good condition and with the colours fresh and bright. A beautiful English watercolour costume game that can transform its portrait into 19 different figures.

Lewis, Meriwether and William Clark.
Philadelphia: Published By Bradford and Inskeep, 1814. Octavo. The first edition of the most significant of all western travel and exploration works and essential for any great collection of the American West. Two text volumes with the original rare large folding map. Vol. I, xxviii, 470 pages; plus two maps; Vol. II, ix, 522 pages plus three maps. Wagner-Camp 13:1 notes: "the definitive account of the most important exploration of the North American Continent." How the work came to be published is in itself an amazing story. Meriwether Lewis felt not much was left to be done as he announced plans in 1807 to publish his and Clark's narratives but he feared others who were on the expedition might have theirs published first. (Robert Frazier, for instance, announced plans to published an account though there is no evidence it was ever published nor has any manuscript been located). To prevent this from being done by others, Lewis and Clark paid Sergeant John Ordway $150 for his journal which was incorporated into the first edition. Meanwhile other notes and diaries that existed were too fragmentary but Sergeant Patrick Gass had already found a publisher (David McKeehan) who published Gass's account in 1807 which is important though lacking the myriad details of the unpublished Lewis and Clark manuscript. McKeehan wrote a long and controversial letter defending his edition which sold for only $1 [However, the 1814 first edition of Lewis and Clark was issued in an edition of 2,000 copies (see PMM) and sold for $31 which was considered beyond the reach of most literate American … [Click Below for Full Description]

EWING Humphrey
Manuscript in ink, bifolium written on recto and verso of first leaf, letterfold with address on verso and residual impressed wax seal, slight hole created in breaking seal, no loss. Otherwise very good. Glasgow, 10 September 1814; Glasgow, October 3rd An interesting piece of correspondence between two Scottish slave owning merchants, at a key moment in the history of the slave trade in the West Indies. These letters give an insight into the management of Scottish owned estates in the West Indies, and the way in which business was done between absentee and in situ plantation owners. Humphrey Ewing (1773-1860) clearly travelled back and forth between Glasgow and Jamaica, working alongside his brother James Ewing (1775-1853), a wealthy and influential import agent who later established the first savings bank in Glasgow, and became an MP. Humphrey makes reference to his brother in the letter dated 10 September 1814: ?[I] am greatly obliged by your attention to my interest in the lease of Mr Christie's Negroes &c. - If you saw a favourable opportunity of buying a few negroes my Brother will immediately honour your bills at 90 days for the amount of their purchase? This business interest in then revisited in the October letter: ?[I] am happy to learn that you have got possession of Mr Christie's place & negroes which I trust will enable us to make something of Arbol by and by? ?Arboll? is listed in UCL's Legacies of British Slavery database as an estate registered in 1815 to Humphrey Ewing Maclae (this name added after the death of his father Walter Ewing Maclae in 1814), at tha … [Click Below for Full Description]

Staël-Holstein, Anne-Louise-Germaine Necker, Baronne de (1766-1817)
pp. xii, 270, former owner's signature on title page, slight browning (binding transfer) to first and last leaves.« Oh! vous, femmes de tous les pays, de toutes les classes de la société, écoutez-moi avec l'émotion que j'éprouve » (citation from the opening passage of the Réflexions sur le procès de la reine), Marx and Engels echoing her words in 1848, "Workers of the world, unite!..." ? Marx appreciated de Staël, maybe her phrase inspired him. And from the conclusion: "Je reviens à vous, femmes immolées toutes dans une mère si tendre, immolées toutes par l'attentat qui serait commis sur la faiblesse (...)". In any case, these words of Madame de Staël sound like an appeal for the liberation of women. (R.Miller) She pretty much invented comparative literature, thought up the term 'romanticism' and was an early celebrity: someone about whom everyone had a view. Byron said she was as 'frightful as a precipice'--writes Maria Fairweather in her biography of Madame De Staël (2005)

Contemporary ownership inscription of Cyrus Palmer at head of title. Small hole in pp. 5/6 costing a few letters on recto (the sense easily guessed) and two 3-letter words on verso, else a very good copy. Pp.

Elihu Phinney (1756-1813) was the first printer in Cooperstown, New York.

All early editions of this primer are institutionally rare, represented only by one or two copies. The earliest in OCLC is dated 1807, with an Otsego imprint. The contents include a description of John Rogers' martyrdom at the stake, and accompanying poem (pp. 9-16); "Dr. Watts' Cradle hymn" (pp. 17-19); and "The Shorter catechism, agreed upon by the Reverend Assembly of Divines at Westminster" (pp. [20]-45).
