        Laws of the United States of America from the 4th of March, 1789, to the 4th of March, 1815, Including the Constitution of the United States. The Old Act of Confederation, Treaties, and Many Other Valuable Ordinances and Documents; with Copious Notes and References, In Five Volumes

      Philadelphia and Washington: John Bioren & W. John Duane and R.C. Weightman, 1815. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. Five volume set, complete. Volumes I, III, IV, V an original set in matching full sheep with red spine labels, matching ownership signatures on front endpapers; Volume II married and with a slightly different binding. All voumes clean and sound internally (other than some browning of the paper); externally varying degrees of scuffing to the leather; some volumes with cracked hinges or joints (but all boards attached). Chip to spine of Volume II. In 1814, President Madison approved an act aimed at producing a more complete and satisfactory edition of the Laws of the United States to date. The act provided for a government subscription to produce 1000 sets to be edited, compiled, and distributed according to a plan of the Secretary of State and Attorney General. Secretary Monroe appointed John B. Colvin as editor, and under his editorship this edition, generally referred to as the "Bioren Edition," was produced. Volume I contains the foundational documents and treaties of the nation, though the Constitution was erroneously printed with a 13th amendment (the Titles of Nobility amendment, which would have stripped U.S. citizenship from anyone who accepted a title from a foreign nation) that had not been (and never was) ratified. Because this was considered the official and definitive set of laws, the error was frequently repeated in popular histories in the following decades. Volume II contains the laws from 1789-97 (1st-4th Congress); Volume III the laws from 1797-1805 (5th-8th Congress); Volume IV the laws from 1805-15 (9th-13th Congress). Volume V is the general index.

Prima edizione. Fabre - D'Olivet (1768 - 1825) si occup˜ anche di teatro, politica e musica, nel tentativo di garantire una stabilitˆ economica alla sua famiglia benchŽ fosse ossessionato dallo studio delle scienze occulte. I suoi precedenti interessi nella letteratura e nella filologia aumentarono la sua passione per le lingue antiche e per i misteri ancora non risolti che esse contenevano. Questo suo lavoro  considerato un classico per gli adepti della letteratura esoterica. L'autore tenta di dimostrare che i primi dieci capitoli della Bibbia contenenti la cosmologia di Mos, hanno sofferto terribilmente nelle traduzioni eseguite da autori ellenistici, e propone pertanto un nuovo sistema di analisi entomologica, fornendo utili e altamente dettagliate comparazioni tra la lingua ebraica e le altre lingue antiche, tentando di decifrare le allegorie morali che le sue traduzioni corrette rivelano.

The articles . . . under their separate heads of Poetry, History, &c., with a general index to the whole, give the new edition a great superiority over the first edition." - Lowndes. Sir Samuel Egerton Brydges, 1st Baronet (30 November 1762 – 8 September 1837) was an English bibliographer and genealogist. He was also Member of Parliament for Maidstone from 1812 to 1818. Educated at Maidstone Grammar School and The King's School, Canterbury, Brydges was admitted to Queens' College, Cambridge in 1780, though he did not take a degree. He was called to the bar from the Middle Temple in 1787. He wrote some novels and poems, now forgotten, but rendered valuable service through his bibliographical publications, Censura Literaria, Titles and Opinions of Old English Books (10 vols. 1805-9), his editions of Edward Phillips's Theatrum Poetarum Anglicanorum (1800), Arthur Collins's Peerage of England (1812), and of many rare Elizabethan authors. He was a founding member of the Roxburghe Club, a publishing club of wealthy bibliophiles. He was elected a Knight Grand Commander of the Equestrian, Secular, and Chapterial Order of St. Joachim in 1807, at a Chapter held in Franconia. In 1789, the Chandos barony became dormant. Egerton Brydges attempted to claim the title, initially on behalf on his older brother Rev. Edward Tymewell Brydges, then later on his own behalf. The litigation continued from 1790 to 1803, before the claims were ultimately rejected, but he continued to style himself per legem terrae Baron Chandos of Sudeley. It seems likely that not only was the claim groundless but that the evidence was forged. He was made a baronet on 27 December 1814. He died in Geneva. (Wikipedia)

        The Complete Angler. [Excellent Large Paper Bagster Edition]. or, Contemplative Man's Recreation: being a discourse on rivers, fish-ponds, fish, and fishing. In two parts: the first written by Mr. Isaac Walton; the second by Charles Cotton, Esq. With the lives of the authors: and notes historical, critical, supplementary and explanatory; by Sir John Hawkins, Knt.

      London, Printed for Samuel Bagster in The Strand, 1815. 24 cm x 15 cm. VI, 512, [2] pages. Illustrated with 32 engravings by Philip Audinet, including portraits, fishing tackle and copper engravings of different fish, two large woodcuts, two engraved pages of music. Hardcover. Extraordinarily rebacked and restored original boards with 20th century spine. Gilt ornaments and wonderful spinelabel. Beautiful example of the rare Angler-companion in a tight and complete condition. This is the sought after large paper edition of Bagster. Izaak Walton (c. 1594 – 15 December 1683) was an English writer. Best known as the author of The Compleat Angler, he also wrote a number of short biographies that have been collected under the title of Walton's Lives.nThe Compleat Angler was first published in 1653, but Walton continued to add to it for a quarter of a century. It is a celebration of the art and spirit of fishing in prose and verse; 6 verses were quoted from John Dennys's 1613 work The Secrets of Angling. It was dedicated to John Offley, his most honoured friend. There was a second edition in 1655, a third in 1661 (identical with that of 1664), a fourth in 1668 and a fifth in 1676. In this last edition the thirteen chapters of the original had grown to twenty-one, and a second part was added by his friend and brother angler Charles Cotton, who took up Venator where Walton had left him and completed his instruction in fly fishing and the making of flies.nnWalton did not profess to be an expert with a fishing fly; the fly fishing in his first edition was contributed by Thomas Barker, a retired cook and humorist, who produced a treatise of his own in 1659; but in the use of the live worm, the grasshopper and the frog "Piscator" himself could speak as a master. The famous passage about the frog, often misquoted as being about the worm—"use him as though you loved him, that is, harm him as little as you may possibly, that he may live the longer"—appears in the original edition. The additions made as the work grew did not affect the technical part alone; quotations, new turns of phrase, songs, poems and anecdotes were introduced as if the author, who wrote it as a recreation, had kept it constantly in his mind and talked it over point by point with his many friends. There were originally only two interlocutors in the opening scene, "Piscator" and "Viator"; but in the second edition, as if in answer to an objection that "Piscator" had it too much in his own way in praise of angling, he introduced the falconer, "Auceps," changed "Viator" into "Venator" and made the new companions each dilate on the joys of his favourite sport.nnThe best-known old edition of the Angler is J. Major's (2nd ed., 1824). The book was edited by Andrew Lang in 1896, followed by many other editions. (Wikipedia)

        An Account of the Kingdom of Caubul and its Dependencies in Persia, Tartary, and India.

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, & J. Murray, 1815 - Quarto (285 × 208 mm). Contemporary calf, neatly rebacked with original spine laid down, flat spine, title gilt direct. Contemporary armorial bookplate of Abraham Caldecott, former Accountant General to the Bengal Presidency, to front pastedown, together with the slightly later plate of William Woodville Rockhill, American adventurer and diplomat. A little rubbed, with some judicious restoration and refurbishment at the extremities and on the joints, light browning throughout, the occasional spot of foxing, some offsetting from the plates, the large map with professional repairs at the folds and to an old tear, formerly stub-mounted, but now laid in for ease of opening, overall a very good copy. Hand-coloured aquatint frontispiece and 12 other similar plates, one uncoloured aquatint, large folding engraved map (opening 637 × 789 mm) coloured in outline, and one similar full-page map. First edition of this superbly detailed regional study, well illustrated by the series of costume plates – "of excellent quality" (Abbey) – which are closer to individuated portraits than the "types" usually encountered in such works. Elphinstone stands out as one of the most remarkable figures in establishment of British hegemony in India in the early 19th century. The son of the 11th Baron Elphinstone, he went out to India in 1795 at the age of 16 as a writer in the service of the East India Company. In 1801 he was appointed assistant to Sir Barry Close, resident at the court of Baji Rao the Peshwa at Poona. The Peshwa was virtual head of the Mahratta confederacy and is described in the first DNB as "an avowed poltroon". He was overthrown by Holkar at the Battle of Poona. Holkar refused British requests to reinstate the Peshwa which led to the Second Mahratta War. Elphinstone was attached to Wellington's staff in the Deccan and saw action at the Battles of Assaye and Argaum and the Siege of Gawilarh. The general remarked of Elphinstone then that he had "mistaken his profession and ought to have been a soldier." Advanced to the important post of resident at the court in Nagpur in 1804, in 1808 he was favoured further with the position of ambassador to the Afghan court at Kabul where he was to assess the extent of French penetration, who had already established an embassy in the Persian capital, and to persuade Shah Shuja into a defensive alliance. "Elphinstone's mission to Kabul was formally a failure. Suspicious of the British, the Afghan court refused to allow the embassy to proceed beyond the border town of Peshawar. Shah Shuja was only prepared to make an alliance in return for substantial British aid which the envoy was unable to offer. Meanwhile, a revolt in Kashmir had made the shah's tenure of power increasingly precarious. Elphinstone did, however, return to India with a mass of new information about the Punjab and the north-west Elphinstone's subsequent Account of the Kingdom of Caubul continued to inform British policy on the north-western frontier until the 1840s" (ODNB). Elphinstone remained in India for the next 20 years, "First as resident at Poona, then as lieutenant-governor of Bombay. As a civil administrator he served with distinction, and is often regarded as the founder of the system of state education in India. He twice refused the offer of the governor-generalship of India" (Howgego). Abbey Travel 504; Colas 960; Howgego, II, E10; Lipperheide 1483; Tooley 209. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [Denshin Kaishu] HOKUSAI MANGA Ni-hen

      , 1815. 1815. Fine. (HOKUSAI MANGA) Katsushika I-itsu [Denshin Kaishu] HOKUSAI MANGAJu- hen. Nagoya: Eirakuya & Edo: Kadomaruya, N.D. [c. 1814/5] 22.7 x 15.7 cm. String-bound Japanese-style, fukuro-toji. Original covers with brushed title. Though Nagoya-based Eirakuya Toshiro editions of the MANGA are quite common, the Edo issues by Kadomaruya are quite unusual. Here, the covers are definitely of the Kadomaruya "flavor" but the pseudo-colophon and ads correspond to the Eirakuya "A2; 01" designation for dating purposes developed by Matthi Forrer in his EIRAKUYA TOSHIRO Publisher at Nagoya. The date thus corresponds to 1814/5, just about the time this volume two of the series was produced. Like all MANGA volumes it is a book usually seen in late Edo-era, early Meiji versions. The printing is good, at first glance it seems light, even worn but examination under a lens reveals fine detail soon lost in later printings. A bit of internal and external soiling and rubbing, there is some rubbing damage beyond mere thumbing, BUT, such early issues as this have utterly disappeared from the marketplace and are highly prized.

Large 8vo, orig. decorated wrappers, orig. block-printed title labels on upper covers, new stitching. N.p.: 1816. First editions to be edited by Honma - complete - of this rare and important work on courtly attire; it is especially notable for the hundreds of complicated and elaborate woodcuts, which reveal the art of the Japanese book. The purpose of this work was to "archive" the styles of attire worn at court as well as to depict the rich variety of textiles used. Matsuoka (1764-1840), a samurai and scholar of the royal court, and Honma (1784-1854), his disciple, wrote these works to record the system of yusokukojitsu (the ceremonies, manners, and customs of the ancient medieval court). The hundreds of woodcuts are enormously complex. Some of them have been have been repeatedly printed using the same color to attain a rich and deep, almost 3-D, appearance. Some of the woodcuts have been printed several times using different colors. Blind-printing (karazuri), burnishing of the printed area (tsuyadashi), and the application of gold flakes are all employed at the highest production standards. Each pattern has a caption with its name and description of those eligible to wear it. The first work has a stated limitation of 200 copies. An uncommonly fine set, printed on excellent paper.

        The Complete Angler. [Excellent Large Paper Bagster Edition]. or, Contemplative Man's Recreation: being a discourse on rivers, fish-ponds, fish, and fishing. In two parts: the first written by Mr. Isaac Walton; the second by Charles Cotton, Esq. With the lives of the authors: and notes historical, critical, supplementary and explanatory; by Sir John Hawkins, Knt.

      London, Printed for Samuel Bagster in The Strand. 1815 - 24 cm x 15 cm. VI, 512, [2] pages. Illustrated with 32 engravings by Philip Audinet, including portraits, fishing tackle and copper engravings of different fish, two large woodcuts, two engraved pages of music. Hardcover. Extraordinarily rebacked and restored original boards with 20th century spine. Gilt ornaments and wonderful spinelabel. Beautiful example of the rare Angler-companion in a tight and complete condition. This is the sought after large paper edition of Bagster. Izaak Walton (c. 1594 – 15 December 1683) was an English writer. Best known as the author of The Compleat Angler, he also wrote a number of short biographies that have been collected under the title of Walton's Lives. The Compleat Angler was first published in 1653, but Walton continued to add to it for a quarter of a century. It is a celebration of the art and spirit of fishing in prose and verse; 6 verses were quoted from John Dennys's 1613 work The Secrets of Angling. It was dedicated to John Offley, his most honoured friend. There was a second edition in 1655, a third in 1661 (identical with that of 1664), a fourth in 1668 and a fifth in 1676. In this last edition the thirteen chapters of the original had grown to twenty-one, and a second part was added by his friend and brother angler Charles Cotton, who took up Venator where Walton had left him and completed his instruction in fly fishing and the making of flies. Walton did not profess to be an expert with a fishing fly; the fly fishing in his first edition was contributed by Thomas Barker, a retired cook and humorist, who produced a treatise of his own in 1659; but in the use of the live worm, the grasshopper and the frog "Piscator" himself could speak as a master. The famous passage about the frog, often misquoted as being about the worm—"use him as though you loved him, that is, harm him as little as you may possibly, that he may live the longer"—appears in the original edition. The additions made as the work grew did not affect the technical part alone; quotations, new turns of phrase, songs, poems and anecdotes were introduced as if the author, who wrote it as a recreation, had kept it constantly in his mind and talked it over point by point with his many friends. There were originally only two interlocutors in the opening scene, "Piscator" and "Viator"; but in the second edition, as if in answer to an objection that "Piscator" had it too much in his own way in praise of angling, he introduced the falconer, "Auceps," changed "Viator" into "Venator" and made the new companions each dilate on the joys of his favourite sport. The best-known old edition of the Angler is J. Major's (2nd ed., 1824). The book was edited by Andrew Lang in 1896, followed by many other editions. (Wikipedia)

      1815 - [EHON] Niwa KAGEN, artist. FUKUZENSAI GAFU 5 volumes. Tall, slender orihon folding volumes in original brownish yellow covers, with original printed title labels. 26.6 x 14.6 cm. There are a total of 40 delicately printed color double-page woodblock prints. See Mitchell at pp. 255-6. The FUKUZENSAI GAFU is an interesting book, as, according to the book's preface, it was ostensibly created by Kagen in the early 1780s and here the original blocks, with color blocks added, were used in Bunka 11 [1815] to print a full edition. I can see no reference save that of the preface of the book itself which indicates that the original edition was ever printed in any form. The copy at hand is printed on hard, very thin to^shi paper. The paper is fragile and subject to splitting of folds. It is placed in a protective chitsu clasped case. Complete.

        QUADRO ELEMENTAR DA HISTORIA NATURAL DOS ANIMAES.

POR ANTONIO D"ALMEIDA, CAVALLEIRO DA ORDEM DE CHRISTO, CIRURGIÃO DA REAL CAMARA, LENTE D"OPERAÇOENS NO HOSPITAL REAL DE S. JOZE EM LISBOA, E MEMBRO EFFECTIVO DO REAL COLLEGIO DOS CIRURGIOENS DE LONDRES. LONDRES: IMPRESSO POR H. BRYER, BRIDGE STREET, BLACKFRIARS. [Anno 1815]. Obra em 2 volumes. In 8.º de 21x12 cm.

No final da obra apresentam-se 3 índices das classes, ordens e géneros respectivamente em língua portuguesa em nomes latinos e em língua francesa. A importância desta obra reside exactamente nestes índices e em toda a nomenclatura portuguesa introduzida na obra, que foi da inteira responsabilidade de Félix de Avelar Brotero. Deste modo a obra possui dois prefácios: o prefácio do tradutor António d"Almeida e o prefácio do nomenclador português Avelar Brotero, que ?por ordem superior foi encarregado de juntar os nomes portugueses aos nomes franceses e latinos?, tarefa, segundo o mesmo, muito difícil devido ao estado da ciência em Portugal e ao período das Invasões Napoleónicas de que resultava não existirem nem obras portuguesas, nem zoólogos em Portugal, para esta tarefa. A ciência portuguesa tinha-se baseado no profundo conhecimento prático das espécies trazidas das colónias e na sua acumulação em colecções, sendo ?arrumadas? o melhor possível dentro das classificações lineanas. Nesta obra Brotero afirma que reviu, corrigiu e anotou esta obra de Cuvier procurando não desfigurar a versão portuguesa com galicismos e efectuando uma investigação aos vocabulários portugueses. Esta obra de Zoologia, publicada em 1797-98 em França, foi a mais reputada na sua época, tendo portanto a sua tradução para português resultado do interesse de António d"Almeida durante o período que residiu em Londres, e do patrocínio régio através do embaixador português em Inglaterra - o Conde do Funchal ? que requereu os serviços de Félix Avelar Brotero.
