        Fragments on the Theory and Practice of Landscape Gardening

      1816. REPTON, Humphry. Fragments on the Theory and Practice of Landscape Gardening. Including Some Remarks on Grecian and Gothic Architecture... the whole tending to establish fixed principles in the respective arts. xii, 238, [2] pp. Illustrated with 42 aquatint plates of which 22 are hand-coloured, including ten with overslips and three double-page; 13 uncoloured, including three with overslips; 7 tinted, including one with an overslip; 1 wood-engraved and letterpress plan; 9 aquatint head- and tail-piece vignettes, including two with overslips; and numerous wood-engraved illustrations. 4to., 337 x 270 mm, bound in contemporary English half calf over marbled boards, neatly rebacked witht the original spine laid down. London: T. Bensley for J. Taylor, 1816. |~||~||~||~| First Edition. Repton's final statement on the subject, written in collaboration with his son, John Adey Repton (who was by then an established landscape architect). This work complimented Repton's Observations on the Theory and Practice of Landscape Gardening (1803) which also contains movable overslips that fold back to show Repton's proposed alterations. Because he was anxious for his employers to see what he proposed to do, Repton devised an ingenious system of sliding panels. Each plate shows a park or garden in its original condition before Repton's proposed improvements; an overlay lifts or slides back to reveal the altered vista. In this work, Repton discusses the relationship between landscape gardening and architecture in chapters on colour, interiors, prospects, water, fences and other subjects. The author sees himself as mediator of the whole picturesque controversy; interestingly, the author bestows favourable attention on Price. Among the estates described and illustrated are Uppark, Longleat, Woburn, Ashridge and Harleston Park (thought to be the inspiration for Austen's Mansfield Park). The work concludes with a discussion of Repton's own house at Harestreet, which, with its suburban flower garden, probably had as much influence upon English landscape design as his more spectacular schemes. Repton calls it "the most interesting subject I have ever known; it is the view from the humble cottage to which for more than thirty years I have anxiously retreated from the pomp of palaces, the elegancies of fashion, or the allure of dissipation." Two tears on the the front fly leaf and first blank neatly repaired, overall a fine clean copy. PROVENANCE: Milton Peterborough with his bookplate on the front paste-down. C.F. J. Beausire with his armorial bookplate on the front paste-down. Abbey, Scenery 391. Tooley 398. Hardie, pp. 129. Prideaux, p. 349. Plesch 380.

He succeeded Richard March Hoe as head of R. Hoe & Company, which continued its preeminence among printing-press makers. He was one of the organizers and first president of the Grolier Club, the well-known New York organization for the promotion of bookmaking as an art. He was an extensive collector of rare books and manuscripts as well as silver, miniatures, and other art objects, his collections at the time of his death being valued at several million dollars. The catalogues of his library were unique and valuable from both a typographical and bibliographical standpoint. His collection of books was sold in 1912, and this is most likely when Ms. MacMillin Norton acquired the volume [Jessel & Horr, A Bibliography of Works in English on Playing Cards and Gaming, #1563].

Mayrhoffer specialized in still-life paintings and lithographs of fruits and flowers.A fine, complete copy.

        CONSECUTIVE RUN OF THE FIRST FOURTEEN SESSION LAWS OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF OHIO, 1803 - 1816].

      Chillicothe and Zanesville. 1803-1816. - Fourteen volumes, publication details and pagination provided in the listing below. Uniform 20th-century buckram, gilt leather labels. Modest shelf wear, a few labels lacking. Small ink library stamps and embossed blind-stamps on titlepages, occasional ink ownership inscriptions on titlepages, some toning and scattered foxing, occasional tanning, some contemporary ink marginalia, a handful of leaves trimmed close, a few small tape repairs or reinforcements. Overall, a good set. A strong run of the laws of the State of Ohio from the first session of the General Assembly to the fourteenth of 1816, covering the crucial years of 1812-15 when Ohio was the Western theater of the War of 1812. The impact of the war can be seen right away in the 1812 session laws; the very first act provides "blankets for the Ohio militia, now in the service of the United States." Later in this session, the assembly passed an act "for the encouragement of Volunteers in the North Western Army of the United States" after the "lamentable disaster, which has happened to that part of the North Western Army of the United States, lately under the command of Gen. James Winchester." The Army of the Northwest was a unit of the American army formed at the outset of the War of 1812 and charged with control of the state of Ohio, the Indiana Territory, Michigan Territory, and Illinois Territory. The "lamentable disaster" refers to the Battle of Frenchtown, fought near the River Raisin in Monroe, Michigan, which was a massive loss for the American army in the War of 1812. The day after the battle ended, British troops and Native Americans massacred wounded soldiers in what became known as the River Raisin Massacre, additionally killing many more troops in a subsequent forced march to Fort Malden. Though Frenchtown resulted in more casualties than any other battle during the War of 1812, it became a rallying cry for the American army. In addition to these acts, the 1812 laws include several resolutions related to war activities within the state, including resolutions authorizing the governor to procure arms, one regarding "the conduct of the corps of volunteers from this state, during and previous to the late campaign, under the command of general Hull," and a resolution requesting that the services of the Ohio militia be paid by the United States. The resolution regarding Gen. Hull refers to another disastrous event for the American effort earlier in the war, the Siege of Detroit, where the American army surrendered Fort Detroit to the British in August 1812. Here, the resolution commends the Ohio corps of volunteers "for the patriotism, bravery and general good conduct, which they evinced, during their late arduous and disastrous expedition." A couple of years later, the assembly passed a resolution to thank Andrew Jackson, his officers, and his men, for their "gallant defence of New Orleans," the decisive battle of the war. Such a consecutive run of session laws for Ohio is unprecedented in the market, with only an occasional single volume coming up for sale.

        Emma: a Novel. In Three Volumes.

      London: Printed for John Murray, 1816 - 3 volumes, octavo (170 × 100 mm). Bound without half titles in contemporary black half calf, spines gilt in compartments, marbled sides. Housed in a dark blue cloth slipcase. Bindings lightly rubbed, spine to volume I skilfully repaired, spotting and a little marking to contents. A very good set. Contemporary bookseller's ticket to each front pastedown. First edition of perhaps the most perfectly constructed of Jane Austen's novels. She had fallen out with Egerton over publication of Mansfield Park and transferred to Murray, who published the second edition of that book and the first edition of Emma on the same terms: each was published at the author's expense, with profits to the author after payment of a 10 per cent commission to the publisher. In keeping with Murray's stated views on edition sizes, 2000 copies were printed. Emma is the only one of Jane Austen's novels to bear a dedication, to the Prince Regent, the arrangement of which generated a richly comic correspondence between the author and the Prince Regent's librarian.

        Blumen Zeichnung

      1816. MAYRHOFFER, Johann Nepomuk. Anleitung zur Blumen-Zeichnung. 2 ff. Illustrated with 14 full-page lithographs of flowers. Oblong 4to., 240 x 380 mm, bound in old blue wrappers, preserved in green half-morocco folding case. Munich: Im Verlag der lithographischen Kunst-Anstalt bey der Feyertags-Schule, 1816. |~| Extremely Rare Second Edition of this rare drawing manual of flowers, and an early example of German lithography. "Mayrhoffer's flowers were drawn in the idiom of eighteenth-century flower plates, and his careful and unobtrusive chalk-work provided an ideal basis for hand-colouring" (Twyman, Lithography 1800-1850, p. 20). First published in 1810, the present instruction manual depicts various stages of drawings of flowers, from the preliminary outline to the finished drawing, all executed in lithograph, with chalk drawings prepared directly on the stone by the artist himself. Johann Nepomuk Mayrhoffer (1764-1832), who describes himself on the title-page as "Blumen-Mahler," was born at Oberneukirchen (Austria) and studied at the Munich Academy (in the earliest years of the nineteenth-century Munich was the main center of lithography in Germany). Mayrhoffer specialized in still-life paintings and lithographs of fruits and flowers. A fine, complete copy. This work is extremely rare: OCLC records just three copies of the 1810 edition: Rosenwald Collection DLC, Dumbarton Oaks, and Sachsische Landesbibliothek, Dresden, and one copy of this 1816 edition: Bayerische Staatsbibliothek, Munich. No copies at auction as listed in ABPC. Nissen, BBI 1322. Dussler, Nr. VII. Winkler 521, 167-181.

Bereits als Achtjähriger erhielt Klein Zeichenunterricht durch den Maler G.C. II. von Bemmel (1765-1811). 1802 war G.P. Zwinger (1779-1819) an der Nürnberger Zeichenschule sein Lehrer. 1805-1811 war er Lehrling bei dem Maler, Zeichner und Kupferstecher A. Gabler (1762-1834). Ab 1811 Studium an der Kunstakademie in Wien. 1814 und 1816 folgten Reisen nach Ungarn und 1815 eine Studienreise an Main und Rhein. 1818 hielt er sich in München auf, wo er mit P. von Hess (1792-1871) und M.J. Wagenbauer (1775-1829) verkehrte. 1819 ging er in seine Heimatstadt zurück. Von dort aus unternahm er mit seinen Freunden J.C. Erhard (1795-1822), den Brüdern F.P. (1779-1840) und H. Reinhold (1788-1825) sowie E. Welker (1788-1857) eine Reise ins Salzkammergut.

Als Graphiker beschäftigte sich Klein mit der Technik der Radierung und Lithographie.

        Memoirs of My Own Times, Volume II

      Philadelphia: Abraham Small. 1816. First. First edition. Volume Two only. Fair in original paper covered boards with spine nearly perished, spine lable present but chipped/cracked, front and rear endpapers detached but present, both boards detached. This is second book of the vast, defensive, three volume memoir by one of the most senior and controversial officers in Continental Army/United States Army. He has been characterized by the historian Robert Leckie as a general who "had never won a battle or lost a court-martial" and this volume catalogues several of his vindications in the face of charges that he abused his power or was negligent. He both held high offices and was tarnished by his intriques: he was the most senior officer in the US Army after Washington and Hamilton and was first governor of the Louisiana Territory, yet he resigned his first commission due to corruption charges, was later proved to have been in secret negotiations with the Spanish to set up a fief of his own in Kentucky, was suspected of conspiracy with Aaron Burr to set up an independent nation in the West, and was court-martialed by James Madison, which is the concern of the first chapter of the book . .

        Das zoologische Museum der Universität zu Berlin

      Berlin: Ferdinand Dümmler, 1816. Octavo, folding plate, single page errata, neat library stamps to title-page, author's presentation note to inside front cover "vom Verfasser"; an excellent copy, original dusted pink wrappers, spine neatly restored. Author's presentation copy of this rare early catalogue for the Zoological Museum of the University of Berlin, with early notices of many Australian species. This collection formed the basis of the famous Museum für Naturkunde, now the largest natural history museum in Germany.The catalogue gives a fascinating glimpse into the way the collection was organised. As is the case with contemporary English institutions such as those of Sir Ashton Lever and William Bullock, these catalogues are often the only tangible printed source of information relating to these foundation museums. In this light, it is interesting that this catalogue shows a healthy and sustained interest in Australia and the Pacific; indeed, German scientists have long been at the forefront of the study of these regions. To cite just one example, the catalogue includes a lengthy - if somewhat baffled - note on their platypus specimens, which are noted as being displayed near an Echidna (pp. 23-4).The Museum was particularly good regarding birds (they note some 2320 specimens), and again several are listed as having been gathered in the Pacific, including the bronze-wing dove from New South Wales (p. 49), the Patagonian Penguin from the South Seas, and the Rockhopper Penguin (listed from New Holland; p. 65). The catalogue also notes that they have a "small" East Indian cassowary, but are keen to have one of the varieties from New Holland: it is probably fair to assume that they mean the Emu, given that Europeans did not see a specimen of the Australian cassowary until mid-century.Lichtenstein (1780-1857) was a well-regarded scientist, known for his account of his travels in southern Africa between 1803 and 1806. In 1813 he was appointed director of the Zoological Museum, which he had helped found. He went on to be heavily involved with the Berlin Botanical Gardens, and is particularly remembered as the editor of Johann Forster's Descriptiones animalium, which had been completed within a month of the return of Cook's second voyage, but was not published until 1844.As this catalogue attests, it was in 1809 that the previously scattered ethnography and natural history collections of the University of Berlin were unified by the King of Prussia, and the museum was formally opened the following year. The overthrow of Napoleon in 1814 led to the most drastic shift in the way the Zoological Museum was regarded, particularly with it being made more widely open to the public and to students. The core of the zoological collections comprised specimens from Count Johann Centurius von Hoffmannsegg and the Siberian-explorer Peter Simon Pallas.

      London: J. Murray, 1816. Octavo; fine in original boards. First edition.Although best remembered as friend and supporter to Keats and Shelley, Hunt was also a well-regarded and popular poet, and in this re-working of the tragedy of Paulo and Francesca from Dante's Inferno, he displays both his love of Italian literature and the reintroduction of freer verse forms into English poetry, both of which would inspire Keats, whom Hunt first met in 1816. Although its popularity has waned, it is still regarded as an important 'landmark in English poetry' (Mitchell).

I defective (missing top half); vol II neatly rebacked; endsheets of all three volumes slightly spotted. A good copy, however, with a contemporary provenance: from the libraries of Dowager Lady Vernon, with her signature, dated 1816, on each title page; and Edward Lord Suffield, with his bookplate (both likely acquaintances of Lamb and Byron). Lady Caroline Lamb's notorious and deliriously written roman ? cl?, to exact her revenge on Byron for her seduction and abandonment. When our protagonist Calantha encounters Ruthven Glenarvon (i.,e., Byron), her helplessness is described thus: "The eye of the rattle-snake, it has been said, once fixed upon its victim, overpowers it with terror and alarm: the bird, thus charmed, dares not attempt its escape; it sings its last sweet lay; flutters its little pinions in the air, then falls like a shot before its destroyer, unable to fly from his fascination. Calantha bowed, therefore with the rest, pierced to the heart at once by the maddening power that destroys alike the high and low; but she liked not the wily turn of his eye, the contemptuous sneer of his curling lip, the soft passionless tones of his voice ...
