URQUHART, Thomas
London: published for the benefit of the Maritime Society, by J. Richardson. 1816. 8vo., 100pp., old, perhaps original, boards, spine worn and chipped, a very good uncut copy. Tipped in is an autograph letter* in the third person from Mrs [William] Wilberforce to the family doctor, Dr. B. Seth Watson,> 16 Norfolk Street, Park Street. According to Urquhart the Royal Navy has not only been 'the peculiar object of national solicitude and pride' it has 'ever proved the source of national freedom'. Britain had abandoned the practice of impressment after the end of the Napoleonic war in 1815. For the remainder of the 19th century the Navy was wholly manned through voluntary recruitment. Urquhart here recommends 'the training of youth as seamen', and to 'render Naval officers competent to the command of mercantile seamen'. * She asks Dr. Watson 'to call upon her as early as he can this morning' as she feels very unwell'. She would be at 'the Bishop of Oxford's house 61 Eaton Place'. [The Bishop of Oxford was Samuel Wilberforce, 1805-1873, one of the sons of William and Barbara Ann Wilberforce.]

Hardcover. Second edition. Three works in one volume (as issued). Leather-bound. Octavo (230 x 150mm), pp. [vii], (1), 64, (2 - blank). Later half-morocco. Gilt lettering to spine. Marbled boards, pastedowns and endpapers. Half-titles. Preface. Terminal blank. Classical-style bookplate of Simon and Barbara Grandage to front pastedown. Condition: VERY GOOD. Binding secure with slight rubbing to extremities. Contents largely well preserved with some light toning and very occasional faint fox spots. Without inking. Listing Note: Rare second edition of "Christabel," Coleridge's unfinished fantasy about innocent Christabel and her encounter with the ominously mysterious Geraldine. As early as 1803, Coleridge was finishing "Christabel" and discussing publication. It was not published until 1816, however, along with Coleridge's visionary "Kubla Kahn" and "The Pains of Sleep." In October 1815, before leaving England for the continent in 1816, Byron urged Coleridge to publish Christabel and took a manuscript of the poem with him. In the summer of 1816, Shelley, Mary and her step-sister Claire Clairmont lived on Lake Geneva adjacent to Byron's Villa Diodati. Byron, who probably had shown Shelley his copy of Christabel before Shelley read the published work, recited the passage about Geraldine's deformed bosom late one evening when all were gathered at Byron's villa.

New York: S. Wood & Sons, 1816. Some wear at corners, and upper right corner of cover, age toning. Binding remarkably tight. "The Seven Wonders Of The World And Other Magnificent Buildings, &c.", a very rare miniature book published and sold by S. (Samuel) Wood & Sons, Juvenile Bookstore, No. 357 Pearl Street, New York in 1816, originally published with only 1300 copies. There exists a later version, published in 1819, which is also rare, but was published in larger quantity than the 1816 edition. It is believed that this book was based on a work by famed classical scholar Johann Conrad von Orelli (1770-1826). Although of Italian descent from a prominent family, his books were published in Munich, Germany, in Latin. This book measures 2 3/4" x 4 3/4" in size, has 42 pages, and a soft cover. Illustrated with numerous woodcuts. The binding is tight, with some wear at corners, particularly the upper right corner of the cover.

MCADAM, John Loudon.
Bristol: printed and published by J.M. Gutch, 1816. First edition. Pp. 32. 8vo., bound in recent blue wrappers. Some browning to first and last pages, otherwise very good.||McAdam's system relied on layers of carefully graded stone laid on a well-drained base; the topmost layer of stones were to be broken by workers with hammers into rough pieces weighing no more than 6 oz and that would fit into the mouth. His techniques were simple, effective and economical and his process became of global importance and endured.He revolutionised the process of road building: 'By the early nineteenth century the fact that the methods of road construction were haphazarad, and the surveyors largely untrained and of low esteem, was causing official as well as private concern. Sir John Sinclair, chairman of the board of agriculture, supported a series of parliamentary committees which reported regularly from 1806. Evidence was invited and in 1810 Sri John received an impressive memorandum from McAdam which was edited and published as an appendix to a report of the following year...Extracts were included in McAdam's first book, 'Remarks on the present system of road making', which was so influential that it had reached nine editions by 1827' (DNB).This first edition is exceedingly rare. There are no other copies on the market and the last copy to appear in auction was in 1998 in the Norman sale.|Norman 1401; Kress B.6739 The foundation of modern road making

Full period calf, title on red morocco label affixed to spine. Considerable wear to spine, repairs along top edge. Dampstain to outer edge, some intermittent foxing. Signed by President James Buchanan on the title page. This law book is from the personal library of President James Buchanan. His library was primarily held at his home in Lancaster, PA, called Wheatland. The majority of his presidential papers, correspondence and books went to Dickinson college, his alma mater. After graduating with honors in 1809, James Buchanan moved to Lancaster and became a legal apprentice to James Hopkins. He was admitted to the Pennsylvania Bar in 1812. Buchanan would go on to serve in the House of Representatives from 1821-1831, United States Senator (1834-1845), then as the 17th Secretary of State under President James K. Polk. He was elected President of the United States in 1856, serving one term. He predicted in retirement that "history would vindicate my memory," but his inability to stop the succession of the southern states has sealed his legacy as one of the least successful presidents in history.

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 piece of history 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.

Frey, so intent on converting his former coreligionists to Christianity that he is willing to take liberties with Scripture. As the author puts it in his opening letter to Frey: “In your eagerness to convert the Jews to your way of thinking, you make no scruples of converting and perverting the prophets, by turning their words to a meaning, which you conceive to be best adapted to your purpose; and, in doing this, you make them not only flatly contradict each other, but themselves also.” A copy sold for $1000 (with commissions) at auction in 2005.

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.
