        DISPARATE GENERAL Título de Harris al Proverbio 9: Uñas de gato y hábito de beato.

      - Fecha: Sexta ediicón 1916Técnica: Aguafuerte y aguatintaSoporte: Papel: José Guarro BarcelonaMedidas: 244 x 345 mm [huella] / 310 x 440 mm [papel]Los Disparates o los Proverbios1 es una serie (con toda probabilidad incompleta) de veintidós grabados realizados al aguatinta y aguafuerte, con retoques de punta seca y bruñidor, realizada por Francisco de Goya entre los años 1815 y 1823.Se trata de la serie de estampas de más difícil interpretación de las que realizó el pintor aragonés. En ella destacan las visiones oníricas, la presencia de la violencia y el sexo y la puesta en solfa de las instituciones relacionadas con el Antiguo Régimen y en general, la crítica del poder establecido. Pero más allá de estas connotaciones las estampas ofrecen un mundo imaginativo rico relacionado con la noche, el carnaval, y lo grotesco que constituyen un enigma tanto estampa por estampa como en su conjunto. Año: 1916

        South Window of Tintern Abbey

      London: Burkitt & Hudson, 15 April 1815. Aquatint, coloured by hand. 16 3/8 x 21 1/4 inches. 20 1/4 x 24 3/8 inches. A highly picturesque scene from the interior of one of the most romantic ruins in Europe. Ecclesiastical ruins suited the Romantic Age very well: mysterious, evocative and melancholic, at the same time they suggested a new more natural religion in which the sky formed an infinite roof. Artists, poets and novelists found in these otherwise useless settings appropriate places for the kind of reflections Wordsworth described in "Lines Written a few Miles above Tintern Abbey" in 1798. Tintern Abbey, in Wales in the Wye valley, was founded as a Cistercian monastery in 1131 but the present remains date from the late 13th century. Once the richest Abbey in Wales, its decline began soon after 1536 and the dissolution of the monasteries by King Henry VIII. The wonder of the place is that so much survives after hundreds of years of neglect: this serves as a permanent tribute to the skill of the generations of anonymous designers and craftsmen who built the abbey. Now a national monument, its picturesque atmosphere can still be enjoyed today.

        Struggles through life, exemplified in the various travels and adventures in Europe, Asia, Africa, and America, of John Harriott, Esq

      London: Pr. for the author, 1815. 12mo (18 cm, 7.1"). 3 vols. I: Frontis., xvxv, [1], 443, [1] pp. II: xii, 428, [2] pp. III: vii, [1], 479, [1] pp. (lacking pp. 69&#150;72); 1 fold. plt., 1 plt. Autobiography of => one of the founders of the Thames police, a clever and independent mariner who went adventuring around the world before settling down to become an Essex justice of the peace and eventually Resident Magistrate of the Thames River Police (a.k.a. the Marine Police Force, sometimes called England&#39;s first official police force). Here he looks back on his remarkably varied youthful escapades, including travelling in the merchant-service, visiting "the Savages in North America," meeting the King of Denmark, serving in the East India Company&#39;s military service, and narrowly escaping such dangers as tigers, poisonous snakes, floods, fires, and scamming fathers-in-law. If the narrator is to be believed, the two issues that caused him the chiefest distress in life were pecuniary difficulties and other people&#39;s unchivalrous treatment of women. He also has much to say about law and business in the New World and the Old, slavery in America, forcible incarceration in private madhouses (with excerpts from a first-person account of such), and the nature of farming in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia, as well as the state of affairs in Washington, DC, and, of course, the history of the creation of the Thames police. Vol. I opens with a steel-engraved portrait of the author, done by Henry Cook after Hervé; vol. III is illustrated with an => oversized, folding plate of a water-engine intended for millwork, devised by the author, and a plate of another of his inventions: the automated "chamber fire escape", which enables anyone to lower him- or herself from a high window. This is the third edition, following the first of 1807. NSTC H625; Sabin 30461. Contemporary speckled sheep, spines with gilt-stamped leather title-labels; vol. I with joints and extremities refurbished, vols. II and III with spines and edges rubbed, old strips of library tape reinforcing spine heads. Ex&#150;social club library: 19th-century bookplates, call number on endpapers, pressure-stamp on title-pages, vols. II and III with paper shelving labels at top of spines (vol. I showing signs of now-absent label). Vol. I title-page with offsetting from frontispiece; vol. III with pp. 69&#150;72 excised (two leaves of a rather long religious-themed letter from Harriott to his son) and with upper portion of one leaf crumpled, reinforced some time ago. Some light age-toning, intermittent small spots of foxing and ink-staining, pages generally clean. => Utterly absorbing.

Embracing a Variety of Curious and Singular Cases, Anecdotes, &c. With Occasional Notes, illustrated with elegant Engravings by the first Artists. In two volumes

      Nottingham: Printed and Sold by R. Dowson, Market-place, 1815. 2 vols., 8vo, iv, (5)-686; 641pp., including an index to each volume. With a frontispiece portrait to each volume, 7 portraits in vol. 1, and one portrait in vol. 2. Retrospective mottled calf, gilt-panelled backstrips, red and black labels, gilt edges, a fine copy in a sympathetic modern binding. First printed in four volumes in 1804, all early editions seem to be very uncommon although the printings were surely quite large as they were sensational gutter journalism produced for mass consumption. The indexes are very helpful as they define the crime and punishment for every case. One fascinating example is Òhalf-hangedÓ John Smith who survived the death penalty by hanging for 15 minutes alive before being cut down, and miraculously escaped conviction twice more for criminal acts by sheer luck.

        AN AUTHENTIC HISTORY OF THE SECOND WAR FOR INDEPENDENCE, Comprising Details of the Military and Naval Operations, from the Commencement to the Close of the Recent War: Enriched with Numerous Geographical and Biographical Notes

      Auburn, [N.Y.]: J.G. Hathaway; Kellogg & Beardslee Printers, Manlius, 1815. Two volumes. 12mo (in sixes). [Leaf height: 16.4 cm.] 228, 94, [2] pages and 264, 129, [1 blank], [2] pages. Final leaf in each volume consists of an index and errata. Original sheep; vol. I rebacked in modern leather with new leather title label on spine. Spine of vol. II nears original leather label, gilt rules, and small gilt decorations in four compartments. New volume number labels on spines of both volumes. A good set. Spine of vol. II with some wear and endcaps professionally rebuilt. Corners worn, a few scratches and small spots to boards. Upper 1.5 cm of title page of vol. I excised (evidently to remove previous owner&#39;s name), with loss of the initial article ("An") of the printed title. The end of the owner&#39;s inscription remains and it was evidently written by Henry Shriver, Jun., of Bath, whose similar inscription appears at the head of the title page of vol. II. The inscriptions are dated April 29 and May 1, 1816, respectively. Slightly later name of Edward Townsend on front free endpaper and first page of text in each volume. Marginal chipping to the leaf comprising pp. 13-14 in vol. I, affecting a few letters in three to four words on each page, all of which are easily inferred from context. Light foxing and toning as expected. Preceded by several editions of 1814-1815, which were issued under two variant titles: "Views on Lake Erie ... " and "Views of the Campaigns of the Northwestern Army ..." However, this is the FIRST AUBURN EDITION, the FIRST WITH THIS TITLE, and, according to Howes, "THE BEST EDITION." Samuel R. Brown (1775-1817) served as a private in the Ohio militia. He "partook of the pursuit of British forces following the battle of Lake Erie ... Brown fought at the Thames, but felt sympathy for the Native Americans.... Includes topographical observations." --Fredriksen, "War of 1812 Eyewitness Accounts," 236. "Strongly pro-American, anti-British, narration of the War of 1812. Appendix includes treaties with Britain and with the Indians and assorted other documents." --Smith 38. Howes (2nd ed.) B866.

        The Adventures of Captain Gulliver, In a Voyage to Lilliput.

      Glasgow: Published by J. Lumsden and Son 1815 - 16mo, 105 x 62 mms., pp. [3] - 47, woodcut frontispiece and eleven woodcut illustrations in text, original light purple printed wrappers, with page 47 being the recto of the rear cover, with a humorous dual face - anger/laughter - depending on which way up it is; spine a little worn, but a very good copy. The title-page does not attribute the work to Swift nor assert that it is abridged from his works, and it bears some relation to the first book of Gulliver's Travels. Part of Ross's Juvenile Library. Another edition with a similar title was published in Glasgow by J. and M. Robertson in 1799. This might be a reprint. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Aus einer unter diesem Titel bei Carl Delén in Stockholm 1815 in Schwedischer Sprache erschienenen Druckschrift frei übersetzt, und mit einer Beilage, bis seine Lebensgeschichte erscheint, vermehrt.

      Pyrmont, 1815. 8:o. 124 s. Något solkigt titelblad, enstaka småfläckar. Grönt hkbd från slutet av 1800-talet. Från Ericsbergs bibliotek, med Carl Jedvard Bondes exlibris. Översättning av "Handlingar rörande hof-sekreteraren Carl Adolf Bohemanns i sitt fädernesland Swerige åren 1803 och 1814 inträffade missöden", utgiven 1815. Carl Adolf Boheman (1764-1831) från Jönköping var en ledande frimurare, aktiv inom Illuminatiorden. Han var huvudsakligen verksam i Hamburg och i Danmark. Under förmyndartiden hade han kontakt med Reuterholm och under åren 1802-03 var han verksam i Stockholm, med stort inflytande över hertig Karl. Han blev utnämnd till hovsekreterare, erhöll svenska frimureriets högsta grad och inrättade en filial av Illuminatiorden i Stockholm. Då denna orden även sysslade med politik blev den dock snart föremål för Gustav IV Adolfs misstroende, och Boheman häktades och utvisades. Han blev även utvisad från Danmark och bosatte sig hos fursten av Waldeck. År 1814 kom han tillbaka till Sverige och krävde upprättelse och skadestånd, men blev åter utvisad. Han hade i samtiden stort rykte om insikter i frimureriets visdomar

        On the Relation between the Specific Gravities of Bodies in their Gaseous State and the Weights of their Atoms. In: Annals of Philosophy, Vol. VI, July to December 1815

      London: Baldwin, Cradock and Joy, 1815. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine. Entire Volume included: vii, [1], 479, [1] pp. Nicely rebound in 3/4 leather over marbled boards with new endpapers. The paper by Prout is unsigned and appears on pages 321-330 (Prout&#39;s authorship was later revealed by Thomas Thomson). In this paper he "calculated that the atomic weights of all elements were integral when the atomic weight of hydrogen was taken as unity. In a correction (1816) he added that hydrogen might be the primary matter from which all other &#39;elements&#39; were formed...the two hypotheses, of integral atomic weights and of the unity of matter, became known ambiguously and singularly as Prout&#39;s hypothesis. It was a continuous source of inspiration to chemists and physicists until the work of F. W. Aston on isotopes in the 1920s." (DSB 11&12, p173).

        Changing Horses to the Mail Coach

      [N.p., but London: n.d., but 1815]. Aquatint printed in brown, coloured by hand, by R. Havell. (Trimmed to the image and mounted).12 1/2 x 17 5/8 inches. A classic Pollard image from the great age of coaching. James Pollard was the youngest son of the London engraver and print-seller Robert Pollard. He began work at the age of fifteen as a painter but quickly turned to engraving as well. In the 1820s his coaching scenes became both fashionable and lucrative. From 1821 he exhibited a small number of pictures at the Royal Academy and the British Institution which brought him more patrons. Between 1830 and 1840, Pollard also painted a number of racing pictures and some of the earliest scenes of steeplechasing. In all his work he took great pains over accuracy. "Changing Horses to the Mail Coach is the first of four prints after James Pollard illustrating this familiar scene on the road" (Selway, The Regency Road, p. 50). Mail was transported in Great Britain via Royal Mail coaches beginning in 1784. They traveled over ever improving roads, thanks to "macadamized" roads, until 1838 when the task was given to the railways. The changing of the mail horses is said to have been accomplished in later years in as little as 45 seconds. Selway James Pollard , p. 40; Selway, Regency Road I.
