      London: printed for John Murray, by William Bulmer and Co., 1816 - Octavo. Original plain wrappers. Housed in a russet cloth folding case and chemise. Morocco ownership label "A-L" to front wrapper, some manuscript numbers to front wrapper, spine discreetly restored, a few minor marks, some rubbing and creasing to the extremities, internally clean, an excellent copy.

First edition, attractively preserved in the original wrappers, of the publication which prints for the first time three of Coleridge's best poems: the gothic "Christabel", originally composed 1797–1800 but excluded from the 1800 edition of Lyrical Ballads on Wordsworth's advice and left unpublished until here; the hallucinatory "Kubla Khan", accompanied by Coleridge's myth-making account of its composition one night after an opium-influenced dream having read a work describing Xanadu, the summer palace of the Mongol ruler and Emperor of China; and "The Pains of Sleep", considered a description of opium withdrawal symptoms.

        The Statesman's Manual; or the Bible the Best Guide to Political Skill and Foresight: A Lay Sermon Addressed to the Higher Classes of Society

      London: Printed for Gale and Fenner ... J.M. Richardson ... and Hatchard, 1816. First edition. 65, [1, ad], [2], xlvii, [i] pp. 8vo. Later full polished calf, gilt, a.e.g., by Riviere. Joints lightly rubbed, else fine. Bookplate. First edition. 65, [1, ad], [2], xlvii, [i] pp. 8vo. First edition of Coleridge's lay sermon on the application of Biblical precepts to political thought. This is the first of Coleridge's two lay sermons, written at the behest of his publisher Gale and Fenner, who wished Coleridge to address England's postwar economic distress following victory over Napoleon at Waterloo in 1815. This first sermon is a philosophical treatise directed at a learned audience; it was largely met with incomprehension and was viciously attached by Hazlitt. The second sermon, A Lay Sermon, directed to the middle classes and written in a more accessible style, followed in 1817. A third sermon, to be directed to the lower and laboring classes, was announced but never appeared. Ashley I, p. 204; Tinker 695; Wise, Coleridge 36

        The narrative of Robert Adams, a sailor, who was wrecked on the Western coast of Africa in the year 1810, was detained three years in slavery by the Arabs of the Great Desert, and resided several months in the city of Timbuctoo.

      London John Murray 1816 - 4to. [1],xi-xxi,[1],xxxiii-xxxiv,[6],6-231,[1]p. With large folding map as frontispiece. Later half calf gilt by Winstanley of Manchester, morocco lettering piece, a fine example Robert Adams was an American seaman, the son of a New York sail maker and an Afro-American mother. His real name was Benjamin Rose. Having set sail from New York he was taken prisoner after the wreck of his ship, the Charles. He was fortunate to survive his experiences as a slave, but after three years the British consul at Mogador, Joseph Dupuis, managed (via an agent) to buy back Rose from his then owners and sent him on to the American consul-general at Tangier. Supposed to have travelled back to America from Cadiz, Rose somehow contrived to miss the boat and took ship instead with a British vessel bound for Liverpool. Discharged in Wales as being too sick to work, he managed to beg his way to London and though he was by this time using the name of Adams - perhaps because America would have regarded him as a deserter after all the efforts made to secure his release. He roamed the streets of London like other homeless destitute sailors until he was recognised by someone he had met in Cadiz and taken to the offices of the company of Merchants Trading to Africa. It was there that he related his Narrative to a Mr. Cock, after which the company paid for his passage back to America and his family. Since Adams was unable either to read or write, his narrative was taken down from interrogation. This book was the first to describe Timbuktu as a dull squalid place, boasting none of the glories of old, and this led many to disbelieve his story - though some of those who poured scorn on the book may have had a vested interest in the notion that the legendary West African city was still a thriving metropolis.

      John Murray London 1816 - 4to. [1],xi-xxi,[1],xxxiii-xxxiv,[6],6-231,[1]p. With large folding map as frontispiece. Contemporary half red morocco, spine with raised bands and compartments with alternate cinquefoil and Maltese cross, paper-covered brown boards. all edges gilt, spine lightly scuffed but essentially in fine condition. William Beckford's copy with a page of pencilled notes bound in at the front. Robert Adams was an American seaman, the son of a New York sailmaker and a coloured mother. His real name was Benjamin Rose. Having set sail from New York he was taken prisoner after the wreck of his ship, the Charles. He was fortunate to survive his experiences as a slave, but after three years the British consul at Mogador, Joseph Dupuis, managed (via an agent) to buy back Rose from his then owners and sent him on to the American consul-general at Tangir. Supposed to have travelled back to America from Cadiz, Rose somehow contrived to miss the boat and took ship instead with a British vessel bound for Liverpool. Discharged in Wales as being too sick to work, he managed to beg his way to London and though he was by this time using the name of Adams - perhaps because America would have regarded him as a deserter after all the efforts made to secure his release.

See Howgego Encyclopaedia of Exploration. Beckford refers to five sections of the book; in all 20 lines of notes. The appearance of the King and Queen of Timbuctoo attract his attention: "The Queen called Fatima was extremely fat - wore no shoes and in consequence her feet appeared to be as hard and dry as the hoofs of an ass." A weird animal the Corocco is described: "Resembling a very large Dog - but having an opening or hollow in its back like a pocket in which it puts its prey. - It mounts trees with agility to gathers cocoa nuts, devours Goats and young Children and utters a cry very like an Owl - The Negroes, no wonder, are greatly afraid of it. - " The appearance of the Negro slaves is noticed: Adams once saw amongst some slaves at Tombutoo a woman who had her teeth filed round, he supposes by way of ornament: and as they were very long, "they resembled Crow quills."

        Les monumens de la France classés chronologiquement et considérés sous le rapport des faits historiques et de l'étude des arts.

      Paris, Didot 1816-36. - 2 Bände. Imperial-Folio (57 x 42 cm). [2] Blatt, IV, 94 Seiten; [3] Blatt, 52 Seiten. Mit einem ganzseitigen Frontspiz in Bd. 1, 2 gestochenen Titelvignetten und 258 Kupferstich-Tafeln, davon 23 doppelblattgroß. Grünes Halbleder 19. Jahrh. mit Rückenvergoldung (Bd. 1 siginert ANDRIEUX). Einbände etwas berieben, die Bünde stärker. Teils etwas fleckig und stockfleckig, im Ganzen sehr sauber und frisch. Mehrere Tafeln verbunden, meist an topographische Parallelstellen. Brunet III, 714. Vicaire IV, 749. Graesse IV, 58. Alexandre Louis Joseph Comte de Laborde (1773-1842) war wohlhabender Erbe eines Hofbankiers, Reise- und Kunstschriftsteller, Brigadegeneral, Jugendfreund Chateaubriands, Begleiter und Brautwerber für Napoleon, Diplomat und Politiker. Eine umfangreiche Würdigung des Verfassers und der hier vorliegenden "äußerst raren" Bände wurde verfasst von Christl Lehnert-Leven unter dem Titel "Zum Ruhme des Vaterlandes. Trierer Antiken in den Prachtbänden der 'Monumens de la France' von Alexandre Louis Joseph Comte de Laborde" und findet sich im Katalogband der Ausstellung "Unter der Trikolore. Sous le drapeau tricolore. Trier in Frankreich - Napoleon in Trier. Trèves en France - Napoléon à Trèves, hg. von Elisabeth Dühr und Christl Lehnert-Leven, Trier und Saarbrücken 2004, S. 784-822. Das umfangreiche Werk erschien demnach in 45 Lieferungen (anfänglich geplant 36) über den Zeitraum von 20 Jahren und der Preis für diesen Luxusartikel entsprach etwa dem Jahresgehalt eines Richters am Zivilgericht oder drei bis fünf Jahresgehältern eines Fabrikarbeiters. Da Trier zu Beginn der Studien Labordes innerhalb des französischen Staatsgebietes lag, fand es Aufnahme in der Publikation mit insgesamt 10 Blättern: drei Ansichten der Igeler Säule, ein Blatt mit Details dazu, Fragmente in Trier u.a., Ansichten des Domes, der Kaiserthermen und der Basilika sowie die beiden einzigartigen Doppelblätter mit der Porta Nigra während der Freilegung aufgrund des Befehls Napoleons. Die korrekte Tafelanzahl für ein vollständiges Exemplar wäre 258 Tafeln, obwohl in allen uns bekannten Bibliothekskatalogen 259 Tafeln genannt werden. Das ist schlichtweg falsch, da zwei Tafeln (CLXXX und CLXXXIIII) auf einem Blatt gedruckt wurden. Gutes Exemplar dieser seltenen Prachtpublikation in signiertem Einband des Pariser Buchbinders Andrieux, der Buchbinder für das Haus Orléans war.

        Voyage de Découvertes aux Terres Australes. Sur les corvettes le Géographe, le Naturaliste, et la goelette le Casuarina, pendant les années 1800, 1801, 1802, 1803 et 1804

      Paris 1816 - Three volumes, small and large quarto; the two-volume text with portrait frontispiece and two folding tables; the two-part large quarto atlas (bound in one volume) containing 40 plates (23 coloured and two folding) and 14 maps (two double-page and folding); French half maroon roan and contemporary glazed boards. The official account of the important Baudin voyage to Australia and the Pacific, including a wonderful series of images of people and places, among them a famous suite of portraits of Australian Aborigines, and including among its maps the earliest published complete map of Australia. The well-equipped Baudin expedition was one of the great French voyages of discovery, and made significant visits to Western Australia, Tasmania and Sydney. The coastal explorations are commemorated by numerous place-names along the Australian coast.Baudin's voyage, commissioned by Napoleon, was, like that of Flinders, intended to make a detailed examination of the Australian continent. The contemporaneous French and English voyages crossed paths in their explorations, famously meeting at Encounter Bay in South Australia in 1802. Despite their spirit of co-operation, it would ironically be the French action in holding Flinders prisoner on Mauritius for six years that delayed publication of Flinders' map of the continent and allowed the French to publish the first such complete and detailed chart. Sometimes said to have been at least partly based on Flinders' charts and papers seized by the French, this is one of the most beautiful, as well as one of the most famous of all maps of Australia. Baudin himself died in the course of the voyage, and the narrative of the expedition begun by Péron, the expedition's naturalist, was completed by Louis de Freycinet after Péron's death. Freycinet's brother Henri was responsible for much of the mapping. Louis de Freycinet would go on to command his own famous expedition some fifteen years later. The exceptional illustrations are mostly by the remarkable artists Petit and Lesueur: "Lesueur's scientific work runs parallel to artistic work of great importance. He was at one and the same time draughtsman and painter, naturalist and landscape artist. His talent was recognised in France in his own lifetime, by the award? of the silver medal of the Société des Beaux-Arts?" (Baudin in Australian Waters, p. 26). As well as the detailed imagery and scientific record, the expedition brought back some 100,000 natural history specimens (as against around 4000 collected by the Flinders voyage). Numerous live animals and plants were collected for Josephine's celebrated estate at Malmaison, and the vignette on the title-page of the book shows emus, black swans and kangaroos under gum trees in the Empress' garden.A section on the hydrography of the voyage, separately published and actually distributed by a different bookseller, is sometimes added to this narrative to form a larger set. However the format offered here is how the publication is normally seen with two volumes of text and two parts of the atlas, often referred to as the "general reader's set" Slight worming affecting margins of five leaves, a few odd spots or stains, but generally an excellent set, neatly rebacked to period style.

        A Literary and Pictorial Archive

      - The archive collection comprises : four signed letters dated from the early part of the 19th century, addressed to Arnald from fellow artists discussing various aspects of their work, etc. They are R. Livesay, Robert Sherebourne, Sir David Wilkie, James Glaisher from the Royal Observatory, Greenwich. Two signed letters to F.J. Smith, keeper of prints in the British Museum, one from James Northcote, the other from Thomas Stothard. Two pictorial signed letters from H. Cowel (?), postmarked York, 1816 and 1818 discussing aspects of York architecture, Cawood Castle, and Nunnery Castle. With various miscellanea including a sheet of the parish register entries for Marston, extensive (recent) genealogical information relative to ancestors and descendants of Arnald, a printed portrait of F.J.

With an important collection of SIX ORIGINAL PORTRAITS IN PENCIL of significant fellow Royal Academy members, Sir William Chambers, Robert Smith jun, John Bacon senior, Thomas Banks, Benjamin West, John Flaxman. This compendium of Arnald's fellow-professionals in the arts, was probably put together early in his life, in the 1780s or 90s. (both Chambers and Bacon were dead before 1800). George Arnald while mostly remembered as landscape and topographical painter, also was known to a lesser extent as a painter of portraits, including Sir Robert Peel, Duke of Wellington, and William Wordsworth (who is known to have bemoaned Arnald's literary ignorance). Provenance : passed through the family by descent. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        View of the Fair Merchant Yard from East and View of the Fair Cathedral from South.

      mid. XIX c. - Pair of engravings (app. 21.5 by 29 cm), contemporary hand colour. The history of the fair in Nizhniy Novgorod spans more than five centuries. From the mid-XVI century it was known as Makaryev Fair and was held annually near Makaryev Monastery in the Nizhniy Novgorod region. Following the destruction of the fair by fire in 1816 it was moved to the Nizhniy Novgorod city. Famous French architect Auguste de Montferrand, best known for constructing St. Isaac's Cathedral and Alexander's Column in Saint Petersburg, was entrusted with designing a fair complex and a cathedral that later became known as Staroyarmarochny. The project was completed in 1822. Gradually, the groundwater eroded the artificial ground on which the cathedral stood and caused numerous cracks in its walls. It was restored by the architect Robert Kileveyn and re-consecrated in 1888. The bell tower standing next to the cathedral was also replaced by a new one constructed in the same design. The fair itself played a major role in the Russian trade and by the mid-XIX century it became a centre of the commerce of the Empire, where merchants would sell up to half of the total production exported outside Russia. It attracted many foreign merchants from India, Iran, and Central Asia making it a place where the East met the West. As a result of the economic instability in Russia in the beginning of XX century the fair business started to stagnate, which eventually led to the closure of the Nizhniy Novgorod Fair in 1929. Nowadays, Spassky Cathedral belongs to one of the few surviving original fair buildings, until the XXI century.

      Milan, Milan, Sonzogno e Comp., 1816. 7 volumes, complete set, FIRST EDITION, Italian text, 1816-17. 12mo, approximately 170 x 100 mm, 6½ x 4 inches, portrait of Cook engraved by Giuseppe dall'Acqua as frontispiece to Volume I, folding black and white map of the world at rear of Volume I. 29 very good plates by dall'Acqua, 27 nicely HAND COLOURED by Lazzaretti, pages xl, 212, (1); 334, (1); 286, (1); 318, (1); 393, (1); 305, (1); 286, each volume has a half-title and an unnumbered plate list at the end, except in Volume VII where the plate list precedes the index, bound in half calf over speckled light brown boards, all nicely rebacked with raised bands and 2 gilt decorated and lettered contrasting morocco labels (originally published in printed wrappers), Volume V which is a copy from another set, recornered and with replacement boards which are a very good match with the others. Some corners and some board edges slightly worn, some light damp staining and other small light stains some are unsightly, plus occasional very light soiling to most volumes, mainly to margins, except Volume V which is clean and bright, Volume I: light damp staining to upper inner corners of title page and frontispiece with a couple of dark spots, lighter staining to upper margin persists throughout, small closed tear at inner edge of map with neat repair on reverse, small split to edge of 1 fold affecting margin only, Volume II: large light brown damp stain to title page, first 11 leaves and plate of Principessa di Taiti (hardly noticeable), another plate has small light damp stain to upper corner affecting sky only, Volume III: a few dark spots to lower outer corner from half-title to page 81 and then intermittently to the end, Volume V: small closed tear to middle of 1 text page, no loss, Volume VI: light brown damp stain to upper third of last 8 leaves, strongest on plate list and rear endpaper but not obscuring text. Bindings tight and firm. A good set of an Italian account of the voyages of Cook and of some of his predecessors with interesting well executed plates. The first 2 volumes describe the voyages of those navigators who preceded Cook: Byron, Carteret, Wallis, Bougainville and Surville. Volumes III and IV recount Cook's first voyage, Volume V his second voyage and Volumes VI and VII his third voyage including the continuation by Captain King after Cook's death on Hawaii. This is a new Italian translation of the three voyages based on various sources alluded to but not named in the publisher's preface. This edition is especially notable for the coloured plates which show natives and their customs and rituals, their ships, a kangaroo, walrus hunting, the death of Captain Cook, and various scenes. 2 uncoloured plates show tools and weapons. The Death of Cook is the typical scene after Webber showing Cook ordering his Marines to cease fire. Beddie, Bibliography of Captain Cook, 86; Forbes, Hawaiian National Bibliography, 449.
