        Memoirs of Lady Hamilton; with illustrative anecdotes of many of her most particular friends and distinguished contemporaries

      London: Henry Colburn, 1815. 2nd Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. SECOND 1815 EDITION.8vo, vi, 352pp. Contemporary full polished calf, original marbled end paper with previous owners bookplate affixed. Very nice copy. Engraved portrait after Romney with light foxing and damp stain to bottom right not effecting image. Attractive engraved bookplate of James Campbell on inside front cover fly leaf "Emma, Lady Hamilton, the lover of Admiral Nelson. Nelson had become a national hero on the moment of his death in the decisive naval battle against the French off Cape Trafalgar in 1805. A decade later Emma, chased by creditors, was ending her days in exile and penury in Calais. But there remained a public fascination for her extraordinary life story, and when "Memoirs of Lady Hamilton with Illustrated Anecdotes of Many of Her Most Particular Friends and Distinguished Contemporaries" was published in 1815, the year of her death, it was an instant, runaway success. In this book, many pages were given by its unknown author, to the extraordinary friendship Emma had with the outrageous Earl Bishop, concluding: "Such was the character and end of Frederick Hervey, Earl of Bristol, who dissipated a long life, a princely fortune, and respectable talents, in the pursuit of pleasure, with all the eagerness, and on the same motive as that which actuated the Epicurean philosophers of old, whose creed and practice were comprehended in the resolution, 'Let us eat and drink, for to-morrow we die'." quoted from Hotel Bristol News blogWith illustrative anecdotes of many of her most particular friends and distinguished contemporaries. With some minor corrections and additions. "An abusive book with pseudo-religious reflections, is of little authority, but not quite worthless" D.N.B. It was considered worth a later 3rd reprint in 1892.

        LA SVIZZERA STORICA ED ARTISTICA. Descritta da Giuseppe La Farina ed illustrata da una serie di finissime incisioni in acciaio.

      Luigi Bardi editorePrima edizione. Opera completa in due volumi. Cm.29,5x21,6. Pg.366; 432. Legature in mz.pelle con titoli e fregi in oro ai dorsi. Fogli di guardia color verde. Frontespizi e testo in cornicetta decorativa a doppio filo. L'Opera è adorna di 96 belle incisioni su acciaio fuori testo, ognuna con velina originale protettiva. Dall'Indice delle Illustrazioni, comprendente 98 tavole, si evince la mancanza delle tavole raffiguranti una "Scena sulla Valle di San Nicola", la "Strada diSion", il "Passaggio di Cardinell nello Splügen", mentre è presente una tavola in più, raffigurante una veduta di "Lugano". Le tavole, alcune delle quali presentano bruniture, sono incise da Wallis, Cousen e altri su disegni di William Henry Bartlett. Bella Opera, con ricchissimo apparato iconografico. "Giuseppe La Farina (Messina, 1815?1863), patriota e scrittore, letterato e storico, collaborò con le "Effemeridi Letterarie Messinesi". Fondatore e redattore di numerosi giornali, fu autore di opere storiche e politiche (Studi sul secolo XIII; L?Italia dai tempi antichi fino ai nostri giorni), geografiche (L?Italia nei suoi monumenti; Messina e i suoi monumenti) e letterarie (Studi sopra alcuni canti della Divina Commedia). Nel 1848 condusse la Legione Universitaria della Sicilia contro i Borboni e fu deputato di Messina al parlamento siciliano dal 1848 al 1849 ed incaricato come diplomatico assieme ad Emerico Amari di offrire la corona siciliana al Duca di Genova. Nel Veneto fronteggiò gli austriaci nel 1849 quale consigliere del re sabaudo. Emigrato dapprima in Francia, verso la fine del 1856 assieme a Daniele Manin e a Giorgio Pallavicino Trivulzio fondò la Società nazionale italiana, una associazione avente l'obiettivo di orientare l'opinione nazionale verso il Piemonte di Cavour. La Farina ebbe parte attiva alle annessioni del regno sabaudo e favorì la spedizione dei Mille in Sicilia. Eletto deputato al primo parlamento italiano, nello stesso 1860 fu nominato Consigliere di Stato, successivamente Ministro dell?istruzione, dei lavori pubblici dell?interno e della guerra. Tumulato a Torino, le sue ceneri furono trasferite a Messina nel 1872 per l'inaugurazione del Gran Camposanto" (da wikipedia).

        Description de 131 Geranions ? l’usage de Ch. Dutrieu

      Paris, 1815. Half Calf. Very Good. 8vo(20.6 x 12.7 cm). Contemporary half calf over tan speckled marble boards; gilt title and tooling on spine. Collation: [1], 83, [8- Index] pp. Text written on crisp and clean laid paper having identifiable watermark. Text covers description of 130 geranium species from different regions of world in two sections based on regular or irregular corolla. The text proceeds from introduction with general attributes of geraniums to observations of variations of corolla, floral leaves and standard varieties, which are the first 17 plants in the register. The following discussion covers 113 irregular varieties. In describing these varieties the author notes concurrence or variance in description to that of other botanists. The natural location of each species is noted along with flowering season. The most prominent are those found in eastern part of Mediterranean. Both Latin and French names are provided for each plant. This is complemented at end of manuscript with information on cultivation. Not all plants described are listed in the index, indicating that the author set the work aside for completion. There is no geranium number 18 described in the text. This may have been an error on the author’s part as no. 17 ends one section followed by an entirely new chapter. The vast majority of species described are native to the environs of Cape Town in South Africa, Table Mountain being specifically identified at least once. A few species are identified for each of the following regions: Egypt, the Barbary Coast, Madeira, North America and Maritime Coast, Italy, the Alps and France.  George Louis Marie Dumont de Courset (September 16, 1746 – 1824) was a French botanist and agronomist. Born near Boulogne, he studied in Paris and showed an aptitude for music and drawing. He joined the military when he was 17 and became a second lieutenant. Sent to the south of France, he visited the Pyrenees and caught a passion for botany. He gave up his military career and returned home to build an extensive garden that became famous for the diversity of plant species. He tried to influence the agricultural techniques employed in his area. Protected by scientists like André Thouin (1746–1824) during the Revolution, he became corresponding member of the French Academy of Agriculture. He published five volumes on the Botaniste cultivateur, ou description, culture et usage de la plus grande partie des plantes étrangères, naturalisées et method es, naturalisées et methodes, cultivées en Franc et en Angleterre, ranges suivant la method de Jussieu in 1802. Later he entirely re-examined the work and re-issued it in six volumes (1811). In these volumes, Dumont de Courset described 8,700 species and indicated their characteristics and their cultivation.

        Eine wahre Geschichte, oder eine probirte Kunst in Feuers-Gefahr wie auch in Pestilenz-Zeiten zu gebrauchen

      [Pennsylvania?]: n.d. [1815]. Broadside. A very good copy, some marginal spotting and tiny nicks on the edges. 25 x 13 cm., on sheet 29 x 15 cm. Illus. with decorative border. Surpassed only by the Magdeburger Himmelsbrief, the most widely printed and circulated German-American broadside that promised protection, this work is a magic charm to protect pregnant women and unborn infants. "The broadside has two parts: the first tells the story, which was 'invented'- the German term is erfunden (found) - by a Christian singing master from Egypt. It tells of seven gypsies or heathens who were condemned to death in Prussia. Six of them were executed, and the seventh, an eighty-year-old man, was to be executed some days later. At the moment of execution a fire broke out, and the old man was rushed to the fire and was able to quench it quickly. This feat earned him his freedom. The second part of the broadside - the implication is that it represents what the old man said in quenching the fire - is a text that a person had to repeat while circling a fire, conjuring it, in the name of God, to cease spreading and burning. One line is 'I commend you, fire, to place your embers next to Jesus Christ, precious blood he has shed for us for our sins and misdeeds.'. The last section of the text informs the reader that whoever has this broadside in his house will be protected against fire, and that a pregnant person who owns this broadside will be shielded against sorcery, evil, and illness. Additionally, everyone in the house is promised protection from the black death. The house blessings as well as the protection texts respond to a desire for protection that seems, in this form, to be peculiar to the Germans in America," Hermann Wellenreuther, 'Citizens in a Strange Land: A Study of German-American Broadsides and Their meaning for Germans in North America 1730-1830' (University Park: Penn State, 2013), p. 72-4. Scarce, and unusual to survive without having been folded. OCLC locates only two copies of this edition: Lib. Co. of Phila. and Penn State; there are 4 copies of a slightly larger version at: American Antiquarian Society, Penn State, Lib. Co. of Phila.. and Univ. Rochester Medical. Yoder: Pennsylvania German Broadsides, p. 221-222. Wellenreuther: No. 500. OCLC: 55500468. OCLC: 775787359.

        Chronological Depiction of the Russian history].

      Universitet. tip. Kazan 1815 - Large engraved table (97 x 78.5 cm) cut into 16 sections and pasted on contemporary linen, red silk border; some light spotting, slight soiling of the linen backing. More than a thousand years of Russian history contained in one sheet - a rare and fragile Kazan imprint, which was composed by a professor of Russian history, geography and statistics at the University of Kazan, Ilya Yakovkin (1764-1836). A first version of this table was issued in 1798 in St. Petersburg by the Imperial Academy of Sciences, simultaneously with a small 42-pp. book under the same title. The present second edition of the table divides Russian history into 6 periods, starting with the description of the tribes spread across the territory of the future Russian state before its tablishment in 862. It integrates at the end the most recent eventful and important period up to the Vienna Congress, detailing Alexander I's reign and Napoleon's campaign. It is more updated than the second edition of the booklet issued in 1814. Cf. Sopikov 4481 and SK 8757 for the first edition of broadsheet, of smaller size 78 x 80 cm. [Attributes: First Edition]

        An Introduction to the Study of Conchology: including Observations on the Linnaean Genera and on the arrangement of M Lamarckk; a Glossary, and a Table of English Names

      LONDON : John and Arthur Arch, 1815 A good copy of the 1st edition of this extremely rare work, with 11 plates, 9 of which are hand coloured. Brookes set out to write for those who wanted to understand Conchology, but who might not have a grounding in natural history. He took care to use english rather than latin names where possible, and to give readers a clear framework for their study. This copy is in a later speckled calf binding with gilt lining and blind stamped decoration to the board edges. The spine has raised bands with gilt lining and gilt stamped decoration. There is a leather title. It is in near fine condition. Page edges are marbled. There is an inked owners name to a preliminary - J Reid Moir. 3rd November 1919 - possibly the Reid Moir who authored 'Antiquity of Man in East Anglia'. The title page has browning and some spotting and an ink mark. The text pages vary between very clean and bright (the majority) to occasional foxing and spotting, to quite heavy foxing in the margins (a section p 71- circa p 90 - affecting margin but not text itself). The plate paper is slightly brown toned but the plates are generally clean and the hand colouring is beautifully done. Each plate has a protective guard.

OCLC (one copy only, at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, Munich). Müller was a German conductor, flautist, keyboard player and composer. "In 1800 he became assistant at the Thomaskirche to the aging Kantor J.A. Hiller, whom he succeeded in 1804. He continued the concerts begun by Hiller at the Thomasschule and the church, and in them he conducted several of Bach's cantatas, probably for the first time since the composer's death. In 1810 he left Leipzig to become musical director of the Weimar court orchestra and court opera..." "[He] was a capable organist and keyboard player as well as a proficient flautist. Goethe, who always had difficulties with the opera in Weimar, valued him as an energetic Kapellmeister... The starting-point for his compositions was Mozart, whose influence is predominant in the early works... Müller did much to propagate the works of Mozart and Haydn: in addition to performing their works he prepared piano arrangements for Breitkopf & Härtel and assisted that firm as an adviser and co-worker in the publication of their first complete editions. Beethoven wrote to Breitkopf (3 September 1806) that he held Müller in high esteem as an artist. Müller's pedagogic works had a great influence in his lifetime. Besides a guide to Mozart's keyboard concertos and tutors for the flute and keyboard, he published a Klavier- und Fortepiano-Schule (1804) as a revised, much enlarged sixth edition of Löhlein's Clavierschule..."

        The Costume of the Original Inhabitants of The British Islands, from the Earliest Periods to the Sixth Century; To which is added, that of the Gothic Nations on the Western Coasts of the Baltic, the Ancestors of the Anglo-Saxons and Anglo Danes.

      ondon: Printed by William Bulmer and Co Shakspeare Press Published by R Havell : First edition 1815 - folio, (36 x 27cm), [x], 59pp., fine colour frontispiece and 24 finely engraved aquatint plates, all edges blocked in gilt, some old staining to blank endpapers mainly affecting the outer edges with some occasional very light old stains to extreme outer margins of final two leaves (unaffecting text in anyway), bound in handsome full dark green straight-grained morocco, with thick gilt decorative roll tool window and offset with blind embossed roll tooling together with inner gilt floral borders, fine gilt decorated spine in compartments with 5 slightly raised bands. A most handsome binding with some occasional rubbing on extremities. A generally VG copy with the text and plates in clean condition of this classic English colour plate book covering the history of British and Irish costume from the earliest period to the sixteenth century. Abbey Life (First edition) 427 ‘All plates have at the bottom a small coloured engraving of an archaeological object.’Tooley pp.266-6; Prideaux 321, 344; Colas No. 2051; Brunet III 1692; Prideaux, pp. 321-3. 'So far as our own country is concerned, the most important and in their way epoch-making books on costume were those of Charles Hamilton Smith and Samuel Rush Meyrick, written as they were from the point of view of the antiquary and scholar'. Depicting amongst other things, Bardic Scholars, a Judicial Druid, the Grand Conventional Festival of the Britains at Stonehenge, Costume of the Pagan Irish, Costume of a Pagan Saxon Chief, etc. This was one of a number of books that had been inspired by William Stukeley's work on Stonehenge, which had brought Druids and ancient Britons to the forefront of the romantic imagination. The Costume of the Original Inhabitants of the British Islands and other works developed Stukeley's ideas within a strongly patriotic framework. The pictures of ancient Britons in these publications show a mixture of influences. In part they resemble the images of native Americans that appeared in early travel literature, but the figures are in poses like those of the classical gods that travellers saw in Greek and Roman sculptures while on the Grand Tour. In addition, they are shown wearing the ornaments and weapons that antiquaries were discovering and publishing in the Society of Antiquaries' journal Archaeologia and elsewhere. Bronze swords and rapiers, as well as torcs, socketed axes, and gold lunulae and brooches all appear in these imagined recreations of life in ancient Britain.The speculation about the clothing of the early Britons and how they used the various objects is typical of these works. Smith's fanciful images include 'A Briton of the Interior' standing before an earthwork fort, tattooed Maaeatae and Caledonians from North Briton in front of a cromlech, and various Druid priests and bards. His speculations were based on earlier research by Meyrick. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Original Watercolour Portrait of Lovelace by Tayler After the Painting by Alfred Edward Chalon

      [no date]. () Fine. A three-quarter length watercolour portrait of Lovelace, approx. 230 X 190mm, showing her as a young lady, facing half left, her hair in large ringlets either side of her face and adorned with ribbon and flowers, wearing a blue decolleté dress and diaphanous shawl, white gloves, and carrying a closed fan; signed to lower right “Edward Tayler”; velvet mounted, in a contemporary ormelu frame, glazed. Ada, Countess of Lovelace, was the world’s first computer programmer. Born Augusta Ada Byron on 10 December 1815, she was the only legitimate child of the poet Lord Byron and his wife, Anne Isabella Milbanke, Baroness Wentworth. Lord Byron departed England for good a few months after her birth, and Ada was raised entirely by her mother, who encouraged her in the study of mathematics. Her remarkable mathematical abilities were soon recognised by her tutors and she was introduced to, and able to hold her own with, many eminent scientists of her day. In 1833, aged seventeen she met Charles Babbage, who referred to her as “The Enchantress of Numbers”. Babbage introduced Ada to his first calculating machine, the difference engine, and her interest in mathematics was transformed from a duty to a joy. She attended lectures about the engine, examined the plans, studied and taught mathematics, and became part of the same social circle as Babbage. In 1842 Babbage lectured in Turin on his second, and programmable, machine, the Analytical Engine, which could be instructed to perform operations in any sequence. The lecture was written up in French by Luigi Menabrea, a young Italian engineer, and Babbage asked Ada to translate this paper into English with annotations - her notes exceeeded the translation in length! Babbage’s engine is today regarded as an early computer model, and Ada’s notes as “a clear description of the programming and the theoretical possibilities of the machine” (Randell). In one note she describes an algorithm for the analytical engine to compute Bernoulli numbers, a suggestion now considered to be the first algorithm ever specifically tailored for implementation on a computer. In 1980 the US Defense Department named a computer language Ada in her honour. Since 1998, the British Computer Society has awarded a medal in her name. In 2011, October 7th was proclaimed ‘Ada Lovelace Day’. This portrait of Ada, by the society painter Edward Tayler, derives from the celebrated painting by Alfred Edward Chalon, made from life when Ada was twenty-three. The original by Chalon is in private ownership; engravings based on his portrait come onto the market from time to time. Tayler’s accomplished and ‘worked-up’ version of the painting probably derives from the mid- to late nineteenth century, and its location was unknown until it came onto the market only recently. Tayler’s portrait has since its discovery been displayed at last year’s Grolier Club exhibition 'Extraordinary Women in Science & Medicine: Four Centuries of Achievement'.References: Oxford Dictionary of National Biography s.v. ‘Byron, (Augusta) Ada’; Brian Randell (editor), the Origins of Digital Computers (1982, p. 14 et passim); Ronald K.
