Schuller, Johann Valentin
Pennsylvania: NP, 1816. First Edition. Single Sheet. Very Good. Folio - between 12" - 15" Tall. Exceptionally rare Pennsylvania German broadside song in which the author interprets visible sunspots in 1816 as a religious warning. This single leaf has browning and spotting with an irregular edge and some minor creasing and nicks. 1816 was known as the "year without a summer", and in Pennsylvania, lake and river ice was still present in August. Caused by climate changes, volcanic activity, and a low point in solar flare actvity, it resulted in widespread hunger, which Schulller refers to. This rare work documents how the Pennsylvania German community reacted to what has been called "the last great subsistence crisis in the Western world". In addition to this work, Schuller was well known among the Pennsylvania Germans for his hand-painted fraktur, two of which are in collection of the Winterthur Museum. Numbered verse in 16 stanzas of 6 lines each printed in 2 columns with a decorative border. "Melodie: Nun ruhen alle Walder, 2c." Signed (in type): Johann Valentin Schuller. Description: 1 broadside ; 12.375 x 7.25 inches. Other Titles: Nun ruhen alle Walder. Worldcat records only 2 copies.

1816. Très rare. Le Brigand Corse ou Crimes, forfaits, attentats et péchés de Nicolas Bonaparte depuis l'âge de treize ans, jusqu'à son exil à Sainte-Hélène (1816). Broché. Très rare pamphlet dirigé contre Napoléon Premier, publié juste après sa chute. Anonyme. Le brigand corse, ou Crimes, forfaits, attentats et péchés de Nicolas Bonaparte, depuis l'âge de treize ans, jusqu'à son exil à l'île de Sainte-Hélène. A Paris, chez Tiger, s.d. (1815-1816) 1 volume in-18 (14,5 x 9,5 cm) broché, de VI-108 pages. Frontispice gravé sur acier. Usures à la couverture, encore solide. Intérieur en bon état. Étiquette de titre imprimée collée en long au dos (époque). Ouvrage édité en 1814 selon Jean Tulard, "L'anti-Napoléon", Julliard, 1965, p. 47, d'après la note du catalogue SUDOC ; ce qui est évidemment faux puisque le titre annonce l'exil à Sainte-Hélène et que Napoléon part pour Sainte-Hélène le 15 octobre 1815 après plusieurs mois d'incertitude sur son sort. Ce petite volume n'a donc pu être imprimé au plus tôt quelques jours après cette date ou plus vraisemblablement quelques semaines, soit à la fin de l'année 1815 ou au début de 1816. Nous avons d'ailleurs retrouvé ce petit ouvrage listé dans le Journal de l'imprimerie (Bibliographie de la France) en date du samedi 1er juin 1816 où il est fait mention des ouvrages parus en mai. L'ouvrage a dont été imprimé courant du mois de mai 1816. Il était vendu 50 centimes. Nous ne connaissons pas l'auteur de ce violent pamphlet dirigé contre le brigand corse Nicolas Bonaparte.

Thomas Malory
Walker and Edwards, A Richardson et al, London. A very good copy of the rare 2 volume 1816 edition of Malory's work. This copy has the 2 volumes bound in one in contemporary full calf, which has had a professional reback preserving the original spine. The work was first printed in 1485 by Caxton, with editions in 1498, 1529, 1557 and 1634. 2 editions were published in 1816 of which this is said to be the first. The binding, with gilt compartments and titles to spine, has some scuffing and wear to board edges and corners. There is small hole in the leather near the spine on the back board. The page edges are marbled with matching marbling to endpapers. Contents: initial blank; frontispiece; decorative title; letterpress title (with small stamped E to top); preliminary remarks, preface, prologue and contents pp v-xvi; text vol I pp 1-468; frontispiece; decorative title; letterpress title Vol II; contents i-xvi; text 1-488; final blank. The contents are in very good clean condition. The endpaper joints have been professional reinforced - presumably when it was rebacked. The paper to the frontispiece and decorative titles is lightly toned; there is a little freckling towards the end of Vol II; and a small stain at the corner tip of p 271 and p273 has attached the 2 pages at the tip.

Original. This is the antiquarian section, right? Just checking. Up for bids is an 1816 first printing of Sir Walter Scott's most literary novel, THE ANTIQUARY, published in three volumes. This is in the same condition as it was when I bought it, purchased on ABE, and coming from Pimlico Books in London. They assured me that this was from the library of the most famous Lord Derby and, indeed, it has his bookplate. Offered also are all those other books in the pictures, as a gift to the winning bidder who might like to own this piece of history. Some are very old, some--like Quintin Barry's lively study--LORD DERBY AND HIS HORSES--are quite new. I made a study of the novel, THE ANTIQUARY, and recent scholars and critics have found much in it to delight. I am only selling this now because I am selling everything, all of my books. I would like someone to take this off my hands. If you resell it and make a lot of money, more power to you. Free shipping for all the books pictured to the winning bidder.

1816. 2 pp. of introductory text followed by 18 pages of plates, printed recto only, each sheet containing a single image printed in two states side by side, primarily views of trees with several other landscape scenes. Very good overall, some spotting to title page, old ink stain to text sheet, some minor foxing and toning throughout, sheets 3-6 with small and neat old mend to verso along central crease, does not affect illustrations. Oblong folio, sheet size 320 x 470 mm. Original blue paper wrpps., paper spine reinforced, some slight fading, foxing, and chipping to fore-edge, slight crease along center. Munich (Verlage der Lithographischen Kunst - Anstalt bey der Feyertags-Schule) 1816. The technique of lithography was invented in the 1790s by German actor and playwright Alois Senefelder. He started a publishing firm in 1796 with composer Franz Gelißner using lithography as their main printing technique, and by 1809 there were at least 6 independent lithographic presses in Munich. One of the earliest adopters was the Feyertags-Schule printing press, under the direction of Joseph Mitterer, and which employed Alois's brothers Georg and Theodore Senefelder. Mitterer played a major role in progressing the technique of lithography and helping to popularize it as a teaching aid. At the time, Wagenbauer was already a regionally-known landscape artist and main contributor to the series "Lithographische Kunstprodukte", published from 1805 to 1807 and known for its high technical standard not achieved elsewhere in Europe until several decades later.

A new edition of the first work, and second edition of the second work. Apart from the north-east region and coastal areas, hardly anything was known of the interior of Africa prior to the publication of Park's book in 1799. After four failed attempts, the African Association designated Scotsman Mungo Park, who set sail on 22 May 1795, to find and explore the Niger. "Travelling eastward from the English factory at Pisania (where he learned the Mandingo language) along the River Gambia, Park reached the Niger at Segou and followed its course for about one hundred miles to Sulla, where difficulties forced him to turn back [and on being taken ill he returned to England in 1799]. After the publication of his book Park withdrew to a country medical practice at Peebles. He soon got bored with the quiet life; and in 1805 he set out on another voyage to the Niger.
