        TRAVELS TO THE SOURCE OF THE MISSOURI RIVER AND ACROSS THE AMERICAN CONTINENT TO THE PACIFIC OCEAN. PERFORMED BY ORDER OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES, IN THE YEARS 1804, 1805, AND 1806

      London, 1815. Half title in second volume (as called for). Modern half citron morocco and marbled boards, gilt morocco label. Folding map with a few closed tears, neatly repaired on verso, with no loss; small, half-inch repaired tear in right margin, just intruding into the map, with minor loss. Internally very clean and neat, except for a stain from an old book marker on pp.120-121 in the first volume. A very good set, untrimmed. The second British edition, after the Philadelphia and London editions of 1814. The narrative of the Lewis and Clark expedition is the most famous in the trans- Mississippi West, describing their twenty-eight-month trek from St. Louis to the Pacific and back again, with a wealth of geographical, ethnological, and natural historical observations en route. Because of the death of Lewis, the publication of the account was delayed until 1814, when the Philadelphia edition appeared. The 1814 British edition quickly sold out, necessitating this three-volume 1815 edition to satisfy public demand. It has a large folding map on fine paper on a somewhat larger scale than in the original American edition.

        [K 366]. Idomeneo... Act 1...[11]...[3]...Price 15s. [Piano-vocal score]

Williamson), [i] ("Personaggi" and contents with incipits for all three acts), 77, [i] (blank), 1f. (title), [i] (blank), 78-139, [i] (blank), 1f. (title), 141-248 pp. Titles (all three identical) lithographed; music engraved. Text in Italian. Acts 1 and 2 printed on paper of greenish hue with watermark "1823" to contents leaf, "1815" to Act I, and "1817" to Act II. Act 3 printed on white paper with watermark "1822." Varying addresses of imprint: "No. 133, New Bond Street" to all titles and caption titles of Acts 1 and 2; plates of caption titles of Act 3 corrected to "140, New Bond Street." Double pagination, with continuous pagination to head of pages and separate pagination to upper inner or outer corners. All numbers with caption titles designed for individual sale and with price to the right of caption title. Some soiling and foxing; title of Acts 1 and 2 browned; impression of caption titles and pagination weak in places; other minor defects. A good copy overall. . First English edition, later issue. Rare. Not in Köchel. Not in RISM. WorldCat (four copies: Washington University has same page count but is tentatively dated "1810s;" Biblioteca de Catalunya, Barcelona, has same page count but is dated "1811;" Harvard University (dated "1810s") and the British Library (dated "1811) copies have 227 pages only. The present edition does not include recitatives except Elettra's "Marcia con Recitativo" in Act 2 and the recitatives preceding the oracle in Act 3. The duet "Spiegarti non poss'io" for Act 3 (K489), composed for the 1786 revival, is included alongside the piece it replaced ("S'io non moro a questi accenti"). Robert Birchall died in 1819. After his death, the business continued at 133 New Bond Street until ca. 1824, thereafter at 140 New Bond Street (Humphries & Smith p. 74). It would seem plausible that in the present copy, Act 3 (with the later imprint) is a later, expanded issue. The copies with 227 pages would then represent the earlier issue. "Having completed nine operatic works, Mozart, aged twenty-four, was commissioned to write an opera by the Elector Karl Theodor of Bavaria, formerly of Mannheim, who had moved to Munich in January 1778. He began work in Salzburg in October 1780 and moved to Munich in November to complete the work with the singers, several of whom he knew from Mannheim days. The opera was successful but there were no further performances in other houses and the amateur performance in Vienna took place five years later." Robbins Landon: The Mozart Companion, p. 248. "Idomeneo sprang from a specific tradition and far outstripped it. The happy auspices under which it was created brought forth from Mozart a work so demanding that it could hardly be performed elsewhere. Even the Mannheim-Munich forces were probably not ready for its boldness. "Magnificent," "expressive," "novel," "powerful," "and "strange," its first auditors called it, with the dominating impression certainly the last. For all but a few the profundities of this opera eroica were too deep. In the decade Mozart had left to live, it had already became a work dispossessed. This is perhaps one of the reasons why he loved it especially among all his works." Heartz: Mozart's Operas, p. 34.

        COLUMBIAN GEOGRAPHY; OR A DESCRIPTION OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. TO WHICH IS PREFIXED, A CONCISE INTRODUCTION TO THE SCIENCE OF GEOGRAPHY, IN GENERAL

      Chillicothe, 1815. Contemporary three-quarter morocco and boards. Binding heavily worn but still quite solid. Contemporary ownership inscriptions on endpapers. Light to moderate foxing and toning in text. Overall very good. In a half morocco box. This curious and rare work predates the appearance of Kilbourn's first OHIO GAZETTEER by one year. It contains descriptions of western territories such as Mississippi, Michigan, Indiana, Northwest Territory, and Missouri, and therefore stands as one of the earliest western geographies. Included is a chapter about each of the other states and territories as well, with boundaries, rivers, and topography described, as well as population statistics, Indian inhabitants and slaves included. Not in Thomson or Sabin. Very scarce.

        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 the original spine laid down, flat spine, title gilt direct. 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. 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 off-setting 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. First edition. Superbly detailed regional study, much enhanced 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 nineteenth century. The son of the eleventh Baron Elphinstone, he went out to India in 1795 at the age of sixteen as a "writer" in the service of the East India Company. In 1801 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 by 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 him 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). He 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). Contemporary armorial bookplate of Abraham Caldecott, former Accountant General to the Bengal Presidency, to the front pastedown, together with the slightly later plate of William Woodville Rockhill, American adventurer and diplomat.

        Wilhelm REUTER (1768 Hildesheim-Berlin 1834). Frauenkopf, 1818

Tonlithographie auf Papier. -- Technik: -- Tonlithographie auf Papier. unten links Unterhalb der Darstellung signiert: "Gez. u. lith. v. Meyerheim. ", unten betitelt: "Preussens Königspaar. Eigenthum u. Verlag v. Liebmann unten Comp. ". -- Maße: -- Platte: 35,8 x 22,4 cm. Papier: 50,2 x 32,7 cm -- Zustand: -- Ecke oben rechts restauriert, kleine Bereibung oben rechts im Bereich der schwarzen Umrandung. -- Beschreibung: -- Die hier gezeigte Lithographie Wilhelm Meyerheims, Bruder des Eduard Meyerheim und Spross dieser für Berlin so wichtigen Malerfamilie, zeigt das preußische Königspaar beim Wandeln im Gartengelände von Schloss Charlottenhof. Im Hintergrund erkennt man die klassizistische Portalanlage und die Säulenskulptur in dem davorliegenden Teich. Für das Königspaar hatte die Anlage eine besondere Bedeutung: Friedrich Wilhelms Vater schenkte sie dem Kronprinzen 1825, kurz nach dessen Heirat mit Elisabeth Ludovika von Bayern. Die Lithographie dürfte um die Zeit von Friedrich Wilhelms Thronbesteigung 1840 entstanden sein, denn die Unterschrift des Bildes führt beide bereits als "Königspaar". In mindestens einer weiteren Darstellung präsentieren sich beide erneut vor Schloss Charlottenhof, diesmal aber weniger "lebensnah". 1 Das vorliegende Blatt präsentiert den König als schützenden Führer ohne Zurschaustellung von Machtinsignien. Der Offizier im Hintergrund trägt weitere Kleidungsstücke des Königspaares und spielt somit auf die Ungezwungenheit und Natürlichkeit der Situation an, um so Volksnähe zu vermitteln und Sympathie zu generieren. Unter diesen Aspekten wirft die seltene Lithographie ein interessantes Licht auf den Aspekt der Selbstdarstellung in dieser frühen Phase von Friedrich Wilhelms Regentschaft. -- [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Kleiner Landschaftsausschnitt mit grasbewachsenem Felsen und Bäumen.

      - Bleistift auf gelblichem Bütten mit angeschnittenem Wasserzeichen: Traube im Wappenschild. 23,5 x 40 cm. Vertikale Knickfalte im rechten Bildteil geglättet, kleine Fehlstelle an der linken oberen Ecke, vereinzelt minimal fleckig, im unteren Rand leicht bestoßen, kleine Annotationen in der rechten unteren Ecke in Bleistift, sonst in frischer Erhaltung.- Die im zügigen Duktus gezeichnete Landschaftsskizze fertigte Rohden vermutlich während seines dritten römischen Aufenthaltes in Rom um 1815 an. Nach dem Besuch der Kasseler Akademie brach Rohden schon als 17jähriger nach Italien auf. Seit 1795 lebte er vorwiegend in Rom. In Deutschland hielt er sich 1801/02 und 1811/12 auf und 1827/29, als er zum Hofmaler in Kassel ernannt worden war. Obwohl ihn diese Berufung und das damit verbundene Gehalt, wie J.M. Wagner (1777-1858) Anfang 1827 an König Ludwig I. schrieb, aus langjähriger Mutlosigkeit aufrichtete, ließ er sich bereits 1829 beurlauben, um nach Rom zurückzukehren. Die Unterstützung, ein großzügiges Jahresgehalt, die ihm auch nach der Entlassung aus dem Hofdienst zuteil wurde, sicherte seine Existenz, für die seine sehr sorgfältige, aber seit den 40er Jahren nicht sehr umfangreiche Produktion allein nicht ausgereicht hätte.

        A MAP OF THE STATE OF OHIO FROM ACTUAL SURVEY

      Philadelphia, 1815. Laid in original three-quarter roan and marbled boards, linen ties affixed to spine. Contemporary signature on front board. Minor insect damage to linen, not affecting map. A very nice copy in fine contemporary condition. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. The second map devoted to the state of Ohio, a greatly expanded and revised version of the first, issued in 1807. Hough and Bourne were General Land Office surveyors who took over and improved the work of the surveyor general of the United States, Jared F. Mansfield. Because of his position, Mansfield had access to original working materials of government agents. However, when he issued his MAP OF THE STATE OF OHIO FROM THE RETURNS IN THE OFFICE OF THE SURVEYOR GENERAL (1807), he issued it privately. Hough and Bourne evidently bought the copyright to Mansfield's work after he was killed in the War of 1812, then substantially expanded it, evidently based on their own work. This map, with their revisions, is "the first map of Ohio to show all the actual surveys within the inhabited part of the state" (Ristow). "This large and detailed map of Ohio shows rapid progress of the township grid from the original surveys in the eastern part of the state in the 1790s. In southern Ohio some of the areas claimed by land companies established in the colonial period were surveyed and parcelled out prior to 1795, and their irregular patterns, conforming more to topography than geometry, are in strong contrast to the tyranny of the grid. Similar collisions of old and new systems of land tenure and surveying can be seen elsewhere in the country, particularly along the lower Mississippi where a pattern of plantation strips running back from the river established by the French settlers encounters the later American squares. Such patterns in the landscape are best seen from airplanes; they reward the traveller with an atlas and a window seat" - CREATING AMERICA. The present copy contains the ownership signature of Charles Shaler, Esq., the former U.S. District Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania during the period from 1853 to 1857. A quite rare map, with no copy appearing in ANTIQUE MAP PRICE RECORDS, nor is there a copy in Rumsey. The Streeter copy, the last to appear in book auction records, was sold by this firm to the Yale Map Collection in 1982.

It opens with an Advertisement To the Reader, followed by a translated biographical sketch of Meli by the Abbé Contreras. Barker, who was married to a Sicilian women, made a number of manuscript copies of this and other Meli poems, perhaps with the intention of circulating them among his literary friends.

        Carminum orientalium triga. Arabicum Mohammedis ebn seid-ennas Iaameritae Persicum Nisami Kendschewi Turcicum Emri.

      Stralsund, Carl Löffler, 1815. - 8vo. 144 pp. Contemp. marbled boards. All edges sprinkled in red. Only issue of this edition of the text, with commentary, Latin translation and a loose German version of an Arabic poem by Ibn Saiyid an-Nas, a Persian one by Nizami, and a Turkish one by Emri. Following his dissertation, this was the first great scholarly publication by Johann Gottfried Ludwig Kosegarten (1792-1860), who later assisted Goethe with his "Diwan".

        NATURAL AND STATISTICAL VIEW, OR PICTURE OF CINCINNATI AND THE MIAMI COUNTRY, ILLUSTRATED BY MAPS. WITH AN APPENDIX, CONTAINING OBSERVATIONS ON THE LATE EARTHQUAKES, THE AURORA BOREALIS, AND SOUTH-WEST WIND

      Cincinnati, 1815. Contemporary tree calf, spine elaborately gilt, black leather label. A presentation binding, as this book was issued either in boards or in a plain sheep edition binding. Scattered foxing, else a fine copy. With a presentation inscription, as given below. In a half morocco and cloth box. One of the most notable and important early Ohio books, by one of Cincinnati's most famous residents, in a remarkable copy inscribed on the front fly leaf: "For the honorable Thomas Jefferson with the respects of his very obedt. servt. Dan. Drake." The book, modeled on Jefferson's own NOTES ON THE STATE OF VIRGINIA, covers the geography, antiquities, topography, medical conditions, and government of southern Ohio. "The work is almost entirely original, and has been drawn upon largely by all subsequent writers on the subject" - Thomson. The maps are a plan of Cincinnati and a map of Miami county. The author, Dr. Daniel Drake, was one of the first great physicians in the West. He was involved in the founding of numerous Ohio and Kentucky institutions and wrote a number of important works, especially medical, on the area. This book, issued when he was thirty, was the first to achieve national notice. Despite the imprint date of 1815, a delay in obtaining the maps, which were engraved in Philadelphia while the book was printed in Cincinnati, delayed issue until Feb. 16, 1816. One of Drake's good friends was Josiah Meigs, the commissioner of the General Land Office and an acquaintance of Jefferson. Drake asked Meigs to send Jefferson this presentation copy, and on March 1, 1816, Meigs wrote to Jefferson: "My friend Dr. Daniel Drake of Cincinnati, Ohio, has requested me to transmit to you a Copy of his work, entitled 'Picture of Cincinnati.' I presume it will gratify you as an elegant and valuable work." Meigs also described Drake as "a sincere and faithful friend of our free Institutions," signaling that Drake was a good Republican. On April 7, 1816, Jefferson wrote to Meigs: "I have referred [sic] asking the favor of you to return my thanks to Dr. Drake for the copy of his account of the state of Ohio which he has been so kind as to send me until I could have time to peruse it. I have done this with great pleasure and may now express my gratification on this able addition to the knowledge we possess of our different states; and I may say with truth that were all of them as well delineated as that which is the subject of this volume, we should be more accurately and scientifically known to the rest of the world. With my thanks for this mark of attention be pleased to accept the assurance of my great esteem & respect. Th: Jefferson." This volume would have come into Jefferson's hands after the sale of his main collection to the Library of Congress in 1815, and so became part of his third and final library. Hence it does not figure in Sowerby's catalogue of Jefferson's library, and was one of the group of books widely dispersed after Jefferson's death a decade later. It does not have Jefferson's usual marks of ownership of his initials next to the signature letters; he may have assumed the presentation was identification enough. A wonderful association copy of a significant book.

        THE LIFE OF GEN. FRANCIS MARION, A CELEBRATED PARTIZAN OFFICER, IN THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR, AGAINST THE BRITISH AND TORIES, IN SOUTH CAROLINA AND GEORGIA

      Baltimore, 1815. 12mo. Contemporary calf, neatly rebacked, retaining original gilt spine and leather label. Ownership inscription of Lawrence Washington on front flyleaf and in text. Small wormhole through center of text block. Light to moderate foxing and tanning. About good. "Third edition improved." "General Horry furnished the facts, Parson Weems the rhetoric; so much of it that Horry became indignant and disclaimed all connection with the book. Unabashed, Weems continued its publication through many editions" - Howes. Marion was a hero of the Revolution, and it was largely due to his actions and strategy that the turning point came in the South. Horry was his most trusted officer; his biography of Marion helped to establish the general as the legendary "Swamp Fox." Sabin does not note this edition. With the ownership inscription of Lawrence Washington, nephew of the first President.

With the Appendix by the famous geographer Major Rennell. One of ?the most important travel-books of modern times? Park was selected at the age of 24 by the African Association, through the influence of his friend Sir Joseph Banks, to lead an exploring expedition into the African interior. He set out from Senegal and was the first European to reach the Niger. He wrote, ?looking forwards I saw with infinite pleasure the great object of my mission - the long sought for majestic Niger, glittering in the morning sun, as broad as the Thames at Westminster, and flowing to the eastwards. I hastened to the brink, and having drank the water, lifted up my fervent thanks in prayer to the great Ruler of all things, for having thus far crowned my endeavours with success.? This first journey revealed many secrets of the Gambian hinterland, and the African Association, the members of the AA were so grateful for his work that they published his account, insisting that it should be in the form of a narrative, for his benefit. Some minor off-setting from the plates to the preliminary pages. // (THE JOURNAL:) Rare First Edition. With engravings in the text and a large folding map with hand-coloured lines of the routes.RARE FIRST EDITION OF THE IMPORTANT POSTHUMOUSLY PUBLISHED JOURNALS OF mUNGO PARK?S RETURN TO THE NIGER and with John Whishaw?s extensive biographical introduction. Until the publication of Park?s book in 1799 hardly anything was known of the interior of Africa, apart from the North-East region and coastal area. Park?s travels had an immediate success. It has become a classic of travel literature, and its scientific observations on the botany and meteorology of the region, and on the social and domestic life of the Negroes, have remained of lasting value. Park?s career was cut short, but he made the first great practical advance in the opening-up of Central Africa. (PMM 253). After the publication of the travels, Park withdrew to the quiet life of a country physician. He soon became bored with this existence and returned to Africa in 1805. This time he travelled on the Niger by canoe, hoping to follow it to the mouth, but was stopped in his attempt to reach the source of the river by the rapids at Boussa. He and his companions were killed there in a fight with the natives. Fortunately, Park had earlier sent his journals to Gambia, and they were finally published in 1815.

        Costumes et vues de la Chine - Vues de la Chine et de la Tartarie gravés en taille-douce par Simon, d'après les dessins de W. Alexandre.

      Paris Nepveu 1815 - Two volumes 12mo 54 engraved coloured aquatint plates by Simon after Alexander, incl. 28 double-pages and 4 folding, most with tissue guard. Contemporary half dark green sheep over green boards, flat spine decorated in blind with gilt title and rules; spine slightly faded, some light foxing, upper board of volume 2 slightly chipped but overall a good set. Very fresh example of this lovely and uncommon illustrated work, with aristocratic provenance. First edition, published by Breton de la Martinière and Nepveu to capitalize on the success of their previous Chine en miniature. An English painter, illustrator and engraver, William Alexander (1767–1816) travelled to China as draughtsman with Lord Macartney's Embassy to the Emperor in 1792-4, which inspired him to realise the present work. It contains several views from various Chinese regions and buildings, as well as portrayals of local men and women from various ethnic, cultural and occupational backgrounds in their characteristic dress, and several plans, including the Great Wall of China and parts of the Palace of Yuen-Ming-Yuen. As seen in these attractive volumes, the hallmarks of Alexander's work, usually executed in watercolours, were "clearness and harmony of colour, simplicity and taste in composition, grace of outline, and delicacy of execution" (Rose, A New General Biographical Dictionary, 1857). "Alexander is best remembered for his work on China in a period in which the Chinese style greatly influenced the decorative arts in Britain" (ODNB).

Ober-Hofbuchdrucker, 1815, Folio, (2), 10 pp., 2 doppelblattgroße Aquatinta-Radierungen in Sepia, 2 Kupfertafeln, feiner Halbledereinband mit eingebundener Vorderdeckel der orig. Broschur. Erste Ausgabe; hier der vollständige Titel: - - Die Eiserne Hand des tapfern deutschen Ritters Götz von Berlichingen wie selbige noch bei seiner Familie in Franken aufbewahrt wird, sowohl von Aufsen als von Innen dargestellt, nebst der Erklärung ihres für jene Zeiten von fast dreihundert Jahren sehr merkwürdigen Mechanismus; ferner einer kurzen Lebensgeschichte des Ritters besonders in Bezug auf die Hand, und endlich der Denkschrift, die bei der Hand verwahrt wird, theils in Versen theils in Prosa, zu Ehren der Hand von den besten Dichtern verfasset. Den in den Jahren 1814 und 1815 zum Friedens - Congrefs in Wien versammelten gekrönten Befreiern Europen's ehrerbietigst zugeeignet von Christian von Mechel, K. Hofrath und Mitglied der Königl. und anderer Akademien. - - Einzige Ausgabe dieses seltenen und interessanten mechanisch-orthopädischen Werkes! - Die eiserne Hand ist das bekannteste und berühmteste Beispiel einer Prothese zum Extremitätenersatz. Den Entwurf dazu hat Götz von Berlichingen selbst ausgedacht. Nach ihm wurde sie vom Waffenschmied in Olnhausen im Jahre 1504 ausgeführt. Die Finger dieser eisernen Hand waren über Zahnrädchen und Achsen einzeln beweglich und konnten mit der gesunden Hand verstellt werden. Die beiden Kupfertafeln zeigen ein Porträt des Ritters von E. Henne (1810) und eine Ansicht der Burg von Jagsthausen von C.G. Brühl (1807), Die beiden Aquatintaradierungen des Basler Stechers Christian von Mechel (1737-1818) veranschaulichen die Hand und ihre kunstvolle Mechanik. Mechel, der den Auftrag hatte, die Hand zu zeichnen, zerlegte diese dazu, war aber später nicht mehr in der Lage, sie richtig zusammenzusetzen, ein Finger blieb steif und konnte nicht mehr repariert werden. - - Very rare mechanical-orthopedical work. An extraordinary description of the artificial hand designed for himself by the German knight Götz von Berlichingen, famous through Goethe's play. This work was designed and compiled by von Mechel and destined exclusively for presentation to the members of the Vienna Congress of 1814-15; it was privately printed at the author's expense. Engravings slightly waterstained and with some marginal blemishes. Slightly browned and stained. Altogether well preserved. - - Lipperheide Ra 12 - Wüthrich 163 - Slg. Kippenberg 1636.

        AN ESSAY ON TREES IN LANDSCAPE

      London: Printed by T. Bensley for C. J. Kennion, 1815. FIRST EDITION n. Hardcover. With 54 Large Format Engravings of Trees,Including Four Extra with Hand Coloring. 362 x 292 mm (14 1/4 x 11 1/2"). 6 p.l., 48 pp. FIRST EDITION. Pleasing recent sympathetic sprinkled half calf, marbled sides, raised bands, morocco label, spine with multiple decorative gilt rules, new endpapers. Aquatint title vignette of the three principal types of English trees and 54 ENGRAVINGS (FOUR DOUBLE-PAGE), SHOWING TREES AND LEAVES, with the four double-page plates, one single-page plate, and the engraved title vignette colored by a later hand. Abbey "Life" 147; cf. Pritzel 4621 (citing the 1844 edition). Title page neatly remargined, almost invisible repair at extreme inner margin of one plate, two plates with small faint dampstain at fore edge outside plate mark, small area at bottom of one plate with tiny specks of paint, very slight darkening or foxing at extreme outer margins of most leaves, slight offsetting from plates (especially the double-page images), single-page plates somewhat more noticeably affected by foxing (one or two plates rather foxed), but the foxing almost entirely marginal, never offensive, and entirely absent from more than 20 of the plates. A pleasing copy, despite imperfections, of a very attractively illustrated book in an excellent new binding. This is an uncommon copy of the preferred state (with four additional double-page engravings) of the first printing of a handsome large-format early 19th century illustrated book on trees. It examines in minute detail the artistic rendering of trees, covering, among other things, their "characters," the particular characteristics of the various species (focusing primarily on oak, elm, and ash), and the practical approaches to the faithful replication of trees with drawings. The plates represent 50 different views of 22 different species, with the four extra double-page plates depicting various species as part of extremely pleasing landscapes that also feature human figures, animals, and generally well-developed backgrounds. As an artist, one of the chief virtues of Kennion (1744-1809) was his insistence upon accuracy. As he tells us here, Kennion decried the general belief that the tree was "thought to be an object so fully delivered over to the will of the artist, and so little depending on any determinable character of lines of forms, that it may be represented in any manner." In fact, Kennion believed that with trees depicted genuinely upon "the principles of nature, it will be found that the reverse . . . is the truth; and that no objects whatever require so much vigour, decision, and swiftness of execution, or can so little bear retouching, ragged and smeary daubing, or any thing that shall muddle or injure the rich transparency and lightness for which the foliage of trees is so particularly remarkable." According to DNB, Kennion became a Fellow of the Society of Artists in 1790, and more than 30 of his works were shown at exhibitions held by that society and at the Royal Academy. In 1803 he issued the prospectus for an ambitious work entitled "Elements of Landscape and Picturesque Beauty," which was to appear in four volumes. However, he died in 1809, and the only part to be completed was the present work, which was finished and published by his son, Charles. This first printing of Kennion's essay is very often found with only the 50 single-page plates (of the 10 copies listed in ABPC since 1975, seven have just the 50 engravings), and the work sometimes appears with paper watermarked after the date of imprint. The text of our copy was printed on Whatman paper dated 1812. The quality of the paper seems to be inferior in most, if not all, copies, as the work is almost always rather foxed.

        The Nautical Almanac and Astronomical Ephemeris, for the Year 1818

      London: John Murray, 1815. Octavo, very good in original polished calf, faithfully rebacked. Rare copy of the Nautical Almanac for 1818, a fundamental inclusion in the shipboard library of any Admiralty-sponsored voyage. The Almanac was used for reckoning the longitude at sea by the lunar method, and was closely studied by officers of the Royal Navy. The continued publication of such almanacs is further proof that the invention of the chronometer, whilst revolutionary, did not completely supersede the necessity for other fail-safes, and indeed the rarity with which any copies survive is ample testament to the hard use to which the almanacs were put.The Nautical Almanac was the brainchild of Astronomer Royal Nevil Maskelyne, who in the 1760s started publishing the volumes for the use of mariners: Cook famously had any number with him on his voyages (that for 1769 printing detailed instructions on observing the Transit of Venus, the impetus for his Endeavour voyage). It quickly became Board of Longitude practice to publish them as far in advance as practicable, precisely because of the rigours of long voyages of exploration. The present copy, for example, gives the data for the year 1818 but was actually published as early as 1815 (these are intriguing dates: it was of course at the end of the Napoleonic Wars that Britain began to look again to distant seas, and the 1818 edition would have been a fundamental inclusion in King's library on board the Mermaid, for example).Of special interest to the publishing history of the Board of Longitude is a short catalogue of twenty books relating to navigation published by their authority and sold by John Murray from his Albemarle street bookshop. The list makes mouth-watering reading now, proving that extreme rarities such as the Principles of John Harrison's Watch (1767), and the three astronomical works relating to Cook's voyages published chiefly under the authorship of William Wales in 1777, 1782 and 1788. Harrison was being sold as a straight remaindered book for 5 shillings (!), the others all being sold in sheets, the first two for a guinea, the third for half that.

Ex–social club library with paper shelving labels on spines, 19th-century bookplates, call number on endpapers, old rubber-stamp on title-pages and a few others. First or last pages of some volumes with light to moderate waterstaining almost entirely confined to margins; scattered spots of light foxing. A compromised set, priced accordingly; complete, however, and not without its points.

Scott to a rank that within a few years would make him leader of over 40 men, women, and children who, aboard an Army boat on Florida's Apalachicola River, were massacred by Creek and Seminole Indian warriors.

Scott of the 7th U.S. Infantry on the Apalachicola River, near what is today Chattahoochee, Florida, were attacked by a combined force of Creek and Seminole Indian warriors. According to John and Mary Lou Missall in The Seminole Wars: America's Longest Indian Conflict, (Gainesville, Florida: University Press of Florida, 2004) there were 40 to 50 people on the boat, including 20 sick soldiers, seven wives of soldiers, and possibly some children. There was no mention of children in initial reports of the massacre, and their presence has not been confirmed. Most of the boat's passengers were killed by the Indians. One woman was taken prisoner, and six survivors made it to the fort.General Edmund P. Gaines had been under orders not to invade Florida, later amended to allow short intrusions into Florida. When news of the Scott Massacre on the Apalachicola reached Washington, Gaines was ordered to invade Florida and pursue the Indians, but not to attack any Spanish installations. However, Gaines had left for East Florida to deal with pirates who had occupied Fernandina. Secretary of War John C. Calhoun then ordered Andrew Jackson to lead the invasion of Florida. Not known at the time, the Scott Massacre was a retaliatory strike for the U.S. attack on the Creek village of Fowltown in Southwest Georgia just one week earlier."

        The British Jewel, or, Art of Cookery Made perfectly Easy:

      London: Printed and Sold by J. Bailey, and may be had of most Booksellers,, [c.1815?]. Being a Collection of the newest and least Expensive Receipts and Directions ... With Instructions For Trussing of all Sorts of Poultry, Game &c. New and infallible rules For Pickling, Preserving, Brewing, and making English wines; With many other curious and valuable Particulars, not generally to be met with in Books of this Description. Octavo. Original gloss paper backing drab paper boards. Engraved frontispiece. Spine creased and worn, extremities rubbed and soiled, signs of use internally but the paper generally clean and strong, a very good copy in a humble but sound binding. Exceedingly rare: Copac locates only one copy, at the National Library of Wales; OCLC locates no copy at all. As with many cookery books of this period, the attribution of authorship and the derivation of the text is uncertain. The British Jewel was first used as the title for an anonymous English cookbook printed and sold by J. Miller, 1769, but that text contains additional matter (The Complete Farrier, etc.) not found here. Maclean lists this edition but notes "No copy of this work has been located. The only known reference to it is given in Sotheby Cat., (1 Aug. 1968), p. 15. It is possible that this Mrs Carter is the same person as Susannah Carter". Maclean also suggests a date of [c.1795], but it must be later than that, as John Bailey was active as a sole publisher at the address given in the imprint, 116 Chancery Lane, from 1808 to 1822 (Exeter Working Papers in Book History). The rear pastedown has a full-page contemporary manuscript ownership inscription of one E. Farnesworth.
