        Unterricht für die Infanterie der königlich bayerischen Landwehre des Isar Kreises - Zweyter Theil: Die Manoeuvres und größeren Bewegungen mit 20 Planen,

      München, Hübschmannschen Schriften, 1815 - 190 Seiten Der Einband scheint noch original zu sein, ist jedoch an den Ecken und Kanten berieben und auch leicht beschädigt. Obeflächlicher Mottenfraß am Einband und an einigen Seiten. Jedoch nicht übermäßig. Im Buch alle 20 Planen enthalten. Mitten im Buch ein Plan und am Ende des Buches durchnummerierte 19 Pläne. Alle Pläne sind in durchweg gutem Zustand. Die Pläne sind entweder von Anfang an falsch gefaltet worden oder im nachhinein. Sie stehen etwas nach rechts raus und sind dort etwas geknickt und geknittert - aber ebenfalls nicht übermäßig. Das Buch ist in einem optisch gerade so, aus meiner Sicht guten Zustand. Buch scheint vollständig zu sein. Bei Bedarf gern weitere Fotos. Rik261404 Sprache: de Gewicht in Gramm: 550

        THE ROYAL ALPHABET; or, Child's Guide in the Road to Learning. Price One Penny.

      Last page numbered 18, but only 16 of 20 pages, if, as is possibly the case, this copy lacks wrappers; though this is not certain despite the page numbering as we have seen this series issued both with and without wrappers, though clearly the earliest issues had wrappers. Woodcut on cover/title, wood-engraved portrait of the King and Queen, and illustrated with 26 woodcuts, throughout illustrating the letters of the alphabet. Small hole in one leaf; spine expertly repaired; else a very good copy. Rare. No copy located in WorldCat or COPAC.

        Jeu Instructif des Peuples et Costumes des Quatre Parties du Monde et des Terres Australes

      Paris: Chez Basset, 1815.. Paris:: Chez Basset,. 1815.. Very good condition. A scarce French lotto game illustrated with the newly discovered inhabitants of Australia, New Zealand, New Guinea, Java and Tahiti, as well people from other parts of the globe. The peoples and costumes of the world form the motif of this spiral journey around the world, each illustrated with numbered vignettes, beginning with China and ending at France. The instructions to the game are printed at the center.& & The game follows the spiral form of the traditional game played as early as the 1570s, called "jeu de l'oie" or game of the goose, which consists of a track with 63 consecutively numbered spaces arranged in a spiral. Players advanced according to throws of the dice, and scattered throughout were images of a goose, rewarding the player by doubling the distance just moved; other spaces contained penalties. & & This game evolved from the jeu de l'oie tradition; it has penalties and bonuses related to landing on certain numbered spaces, for example: landing on any of the countries of Europe allows the player to move again by the same distance; landing on space 19 (traditionally represented by an inn, but here the hospitable people of Tahiti) means the player waits 2 turns; landing on space 42 (traditionally a maze, but here Japanese warriors repelling foreign navigators with spears) means the player returns to space 30; and landing on space 58 (traditionally "death", but here the people of New Zealand preparing to eat a European tied to a stake) means going all the way back to space 1. The instructions at the center refer to number 58, as New Zealand "ile habitee par les Anthropophages" a reference to cannibals. Australia, space 7, here called "Nouvelle Hollande (Terres Australes), is illustrated with aborigines around a fire (after Baudin). & & The vignette for the final space, number 63, depicts a statue of King Henry IV on a pedestal. This perhaps demonstrates the game maker wanting to steer clear of the recent humiliation of the defeat of Napoleon, which he accomplished by choosing a king who united France and brought prosperity. Henry IV was given the sobriquet "le roi de la poule au pot" having wished for "A chicken in every peasant's pot every Sunday". In the four corners are allegorical representations of the continents.& & Andre Basset (c. 1720 - 1865) was from a well-known French family of publishers and engravers active on the Rue St. Jacques, Paris. Basset produced low cost optical views of European cities and also games, maps & prints.& & Copper engraving on thick laid paper, some short closed tears repaired from the verso (space 25 & center), margins a little dusty, overall very good condition. Printed area 24 x 18". & & Allemagne, Henry-Renè d': "Le noble jeu de l'oie en France, de 1640 à 1950" (The noble board game of the Goose in France 1640-1950)" Ed Grund, Parigi 1950 (Tav. 45).

        The Journal of Llewellin Penrose, a Seaman

      London, 1815. 4 vols. bound in two. 12mo. xvi, 239; 217; 215; 197 pp. Novel of a seafaring life based on the author’s true experience. But the story is better than that. The author was William Williams, and he was the first teacher of American painter Benjamin West, whose recollections of Williams appear in the introduction to this work. The publisher had befriended Williams, only to discover, on Williams’ death, the manuscript, which he put into print. The book made quite a splash when it first came out, Byron is said to have remarked, “I have never read so much of a book at first sitting in my life. He kept me up half the night, and made me dream of him in the other half.” A scarce and unusual item, of equal interest to art and maritime historians.

        A Grammar of the Chinese Language.

      Printed at the Mission Press,, Serampore, India: 1815 - Robert Morrison (1782 - 1834) Anglo-Scottish evangelist and Presbyterian minister, was the first Protestant missionary to China and the London Missionary Society's first missionary to that country. He was a scholar of the Chinese language who pioneered the translation of the Bible into Chinese. He also completed the 'Grammar of the Chinese Language'; a work of great importance in terms of advancing English understanding of China and "the first work of its kind in English (preface by Morrison). Morrison worked on his Bible translation at great personal risk; to publish Christian books in Chinese was a capital crime, and an Edict was issued against him and anyone perceived as undermining Chinese religion. Morrison's Chinese grammar was completed in 1812, and printed in India. 4to, vi, errata, [1], 280pp, uncut copy. Publisher's blue paper covered boards, paper label at spine.

A first edition, first printing, printed in French but in London. An English edition was published later in the year by the same publishers. A scarce book. Would benefit from a rebind and very much worthwhile. Scarce. Contains an important early account of travel in America and among its natives. The famous chapter detailing Chateaubriand's night among the savages reveals his romanticism on the subject. Much content also on Mackenzie's journey of discoveryacross the North American continent. Francois-Rene, vicomte de Chateaubriand (September 4, 1768 July 4, 1848) was a French writer, politician and diplomat. He is considered the founder of Romanticism in French literature. Chateaubriands musical prose enriched the French language. Although his accounts of travel were plagiaristic and partly imaginary, they were rich and moving. Condition: The binding is tight and firm and the rear board is attached, but by the cords only. The front board is detached but present. There is some wear to the extremities, including a tear with significant loss to the spine. The boards are also chipped and bumped, and the paper is rubbed.
