Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834)
London, UK: John Murray, 1816. Very good condition. [COLERIDGE, SAMUEL TAYLOR (1772-1834)]. Christabel &c.: Kubla Khan; The Pains of Sleep. London: Printed by William Bulmer for John Murray, 1816. 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.

FISCHER, Johann Conrad.
Arau [sic] 1816. Heinrich Remigius Sauerländer. [And:] Tagebuch einer zweiten Reise über Paris nach London und einigen Fabrikstädten Englands vorzüglich in technologischer Hinsicht Aarau, 1826. Heinrich Remigius Sauerländer. First editions. Fischer (1773–1854) was a Swiss industrialist—the producer of the first cast steel on the Continent, 1804—who, after the Napoleonic Wars had ended, decided to travel to England to see for himself how iron and steel were manufactured there. His first visit (six weeks) took in London, Birmingham, Manchester, and Sheffield, and the diary offers precise details of the factories Fischer visited, and the people he met, among them Timothy Yeats-Brown (the friend of Foscolo, who shows the Swiss the ‘treasures of his valuable library’), James Watt, then 78 years old (‘Talking to such a man is alone worth a journey from London to Birmingham’), who provided Fischer with a number of letters of introduction, and the Wedgwood factory at Etruria (a long description). ‘Under the influence of what he had seen and experienced in Britain, there now began for Fischer what was probably the most fruitful period of his activity as a steel manufacturer The extent to which the fame of his products had spread beyond the narrow frontiers of his home country, and the degree to which his experiments on the alloying of various metals had attracted the attention of the scientific world, are proved by a notice in the «Annalen der Physik and der physikalischen Chemie» of 1821 [which] describes Fischer’s cast steel factory as one of the first ever to be set up, and as on … [Click Below for Full Description]

SVINYIN, Pavel Petrovic (here Paul SWININ, elsewhere SVIN'IN or SUININE).
[4], IV, 127 pp.Very rare first and only edition of the only Dutch translation of a Russian description of the United States of America. The title-page notes that it is translated from the German translation (1816) and the preface notes that the first edition, in Russian, appeared in 1815. A second Russian edition appeared at St. Petersburg in 1818 and has sometimes been described as the first.The great Russian author Pavel Petrovic Svinyin or Svin'in, here westernized to "Paul Swinin", is best known for his Sketches of Russia, published in the West under the name "Suinine". The identity of the Dutch translator of the present work is unknown. It gives an interesting "picturesque" travel account of the United States spanning the year 1813 and provides five main accounts covering different subjects: a statistical survey; a religious overview with descriptions of the several Christian communities (naming Methodists, Quakers, Shakers, Baptists and more); a description of the different types of steamboats used in North America; a biography of the French general Jean Victor Moreau, who lived in exile in the United States from 1805 to 1812; and a description of the dancing rituals of indigenous American "Indians", naming the Osage, Arkansas, Sioux and Saki tribes, which the Russian author interestingly compares with tribes in the Caucasus.With the bookplate of the society Doctrina & Amicitia on the front paste-down.

BARNARD, John Gross.
124, [12] pp.First and only edition of an account of the Battle of Bull Run by the chief-engineer of the Union Army of the Potomac, who was present at the battle. Written in an epistolary form as a "letter to an English friend", it aims to "vindicate the battle of Bull Run from the obloquy that had fallen upon it, and to establish a claim for it in the category of well planned and well fought battles". Barnard aimed for a broad overview, considering "the brief narrative of General McDowell, in his official report, was (unaccompanied by the reports of his subordinates) too general. The reports of the subordinate officers are too circumstantial" (pp. 3-4). The (first) Battle of Bull Run was the first major battle in the American Civil War and resulted in a Confederate victory. Having expected an easy victory, the defeat combined with the poorly managed Union retreat led to great panic among the wealthy inhabitants of the nearby city of Washington, several of whom had come to watch the battle. The resulting chaos with soldiers throwing away their weapons and abandoning wagons and artillery and panicking civilians blocking the roads, became known as "The Great Skedaddle". Barnard devotes a substantial appendix to downplaying the disorder ("I saw everywhere confusion and disorganization but the panic was but brief in time and limited as to locality" (p. 109)) and describing several historical retreats.With a presentation inscription by the author to senator James W. Grimes (1816-1872) of Iowa on first blank. Binding worn at the spine and edges; front hinge slightly damaged at th … [Click Below for Full Description]

VIDAL, Emeric Essex.
XXVIII, 115 pp.First printing of beautiful hand-coloured aquatint views of Argentina, all conceived and drawn from life by Emeric Essex Vidal in the years 1816 to 1818, accompanied by descriptions of the scenery, costumes and habits of the peoples and regions depicted. The plates were executed by various engravers between May and October 1820 and first issued in 6 monthly parts. 750 copies, including the present, were issued in Elephant 4to format. There was also an issue in Atlas folio and apparently a reprint in large and small 4to, still dated 1820, not normally distinguished in the literature from the present first printing (Palau and Sabin describe the work as a folio, but the Elephant 4to is often described as a folio). Tooley notes "the importance of its subject" and describes this publication as "the only notable colour plate book in English dealing with the Argentine". With the red leather Beeleigh Abbey armorial bookplate of William Alfred Foyle (1885-1963). With two stitching holes from the previous binding in the margins. With old folds in some of the folding plates and occasional minor browning, but still in very good condition and largely untrimmed, with most deckles intact. With a tiny tear in the morocco of one corner but binding otherwise fine.

TOMITANO, Giulio Bernardino. 1761-1828
Venice: [G. Bettoni for Alvise Francesco Mocenigo at the Tipografia Alvisopoli], 1816. Original tan pastepaper over boards, lighter blue endleaves, uncut and partly unopened. Only Edition: a lover's tale. The bibliophile Tomitano tells the story of the highborn Venetian, Bianca Cappello (1548 -87), who fled to Florence at age fifteen to marry a wayward banking clerk, Pietro Buonaventuri. The demand to Cosimo de' Medici for her return to Venice drew the attention of his son Francesco (1541-87). He sanctioned her marriage to Pietro in December of 1563, and within a few months he and Bianca had a daughter. They remained lovers during his marriage to Joanna of Austria, on whose death Francesco wed Bianca and raised her to Grand Duchess of Tuscany. They died of malaria within a few hours of one another in October 1587. The narrative is told without interruption. The endnotes fill in the bibliographic details and sources.  The colophon states one hundred octavo copies were printed, and sixteen variously on vellum, on "French colored paper"(?), "silk paper"(?) and on blue paper (as here). The same setting of type - appropriate for a traditional octavo - was used for all issues with the result that the present large paper example has the remarkable ratio of type-area to leaf-size of 1:8.3 (the custom is 2:3).  The book was printed at what began in 1810/11 as the private press of Count Alvise Mocenigo in his planned "ideal city" of Alvisopoli. By early 1815 the business had moved to Venice and come under the direction of the bibliographer Bartolommeo Gamba, who made it … [Click Below for Full Description]

The first volume describes the war in Poland and Russia in 1812, the second volume describes the revolt in Germany (The German Campaign) in 1813 and the third volume concentrates on 1814, when the German and Russian troops were in France.

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.

FRENCH SCHOOL
1816. Two oil paintings on canvas; approximately 10 x 13 inches or 25 x 32 cm. In contemporary wood gilt frames, with a label pasted onto the back of each canvas dated 1816 and signed, "C. M". These unidentified works depict French cavalry officers -- Napoleon's mounted Chasseurs of the Imperial Guard or mounted Red Lancers -- on one of the 1812-14 Napoleonic campaigns across Europe. One depicts the mounted officers in the foreground bringing up the rear of a column of soldiers advancing with a covered wagon crossing over a stone bridge in a European valley at dawn. The other depicts the same column of soldiers and wagons at rest along a river in front of a stone building, with the mounted officers in the foreground overlooking the scene. There is moderate soiling to the canvas and frame, which can easily be cleaned; else fine with no visible cracks to the pigments. A very fine pair of paintings in the manner of Hippolyte Lecomte (1781-1857), who painted many similar scenes of the Napoleonic wars, and also of Louis Lejeune (1775-1848); Charles Thevenin (1764-1838); and Nicolas Antoine Taunay (1755-1838).

GARNERAY (Louis).
1816. Aquarelle originale sur papier, montée sur carton, datée et signée dans le cadre inférieur gauche (15,4 x 21,6 cm hors marges). Belle aquarelle montrant le combat entre l'USS President et le HMS Belvidera le 23 août 1812. La frégate américaine est représentée au second plan, voiles déployées, tirant au canon sur la frégate anglaise qui se trouve au premier plan et semble vouloir s'éloigner ; seule la proue de celle-ci est visible ainsi que la voilure, endommagée lors de la bataille. Au dos, une légende manuscrite a été copiée en anglais, ainsi que sa traduction en français: « Victoire américaine. La frégate américaine le President, commodore Rodgers, tirant sur la frégate anglaise la Belvedora [sic], qui force de voiles pour s'échapper après deux heures de combat le 23 août 1812. Par Louis Garneray peintre de marine». Cet affrontement se situe au début de la guerre anglo-américaine de 1812, dont les origines se trouvent en partie dans les tensions commerciales qui existaient entre les deux pays. Lors du conflit, la stratégie britannique était de protéger ses propres navires marchands à destination ou en provenance d'Halifax ou du Canada, et d'imposer un blocus aux principaux ports américains. Cette guerre s'acheva en 1815 par un statu quo. Le combat représenté ici semble avoir eu lieu dans l'Atlantique Nord, probablement au large de la Nouvelle-Ecosse. L'USS President était une puissante frégate de la marine américaine lancée en 1800 et comportant à l'origine 44 canons, mais pouvant en contenir 56. Capturée en 1815, elle fut intégrée à la Royal Navy sous le nom de HMS … [Click Below for Full Description]
