        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. Most of the session laws were printed by various printers in Chillicothe, but the ninth and tenth General Assemblies were held at, and the session laws printed in, Zanesville. All are rare. A marvelous run of early Ohio state laws. The imprints included here are as follows: 1) ACTS OF THE STATE OF OHIO: FIRST SESSION OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY, HELD UNDER THE CONSTITUTION OF THE STATE, A.

        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. Gilson A8. [Attributes: First Edition]

        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.

        The story of Rimini a poem

      J. Murray, London 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). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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.

        Glenarvon

      London: Henry Colburn, 1816. First edition. [ii], 295; [ii], 390; [ii], 322 pp., lacking half-titles. 3 vols. 12mo. Contemporary half calf and marbled boards, spine of vol. 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 ...

        Angelo's Infantry Sword Exercise; Established by the Prince Regent's Command

      By Authority, W. Clowes, 1816. The Figures by I. [J.] A. Atkinson, Engraved by I. Robinson, with hand-colour. Large broadside, 31" x 21". Highly attractive instructional single-sheet. Along the top are a series of figures showing the "Preparatory Movements" or postures, beneath is a large circular "target" with the directions of the seven cuts and guards together with the words of command for the Infantry Sword Exercise. The figures are by John Augustus Atkinson who was noted for his "spirited and lifelike" figure-drawing; "His figures, artistically arrested in movement, show rather an actor's sensibility than a draughtsman's skill. " [DNB] Here he shows a range of contemporary infantry uniforms including the Rifle Brigade and a Highlander. Angelo's Fencing Academy was established in 1759 by Domenico Angelo Malevolti Tremamondo who had first established himself in London as a riding master. Angelo, as he became known, set up a highly fashionable "?cole d'escrime" in Soho which enjoyed the patronage of the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Devonshire. Such was his perceived authority in the area of the art of the fence that the plates of his L'?cole d'Armes were reproduced in the Encyclop?die illustrative of the section on "Escrime." Angelo's eldest son Henry, who had put the final polish on his fencing skills studying in Paris under Motet, became virtual head of his father's acad?mie around 1785 and continued its reputation as "not only a school-of-arms, [but as] a school of deportment as well" [Aylward, The House of Angelo, p. 38.] In turn Henry's son, also named Henry, inherited the business when his father "retired from ther active conduct of the school" in 1817 [DNB].The present item is dedicated "To Field Marshal His Royal Highness, The Duke of York. by Henry Angelo Junr." who we must presume to be the latter Henry despite the dating to 1816. At this stage in the history of the House of Angelo it was probably unnecessary for him to seek patronage with a well-placed dedication, and in 1833 he was appointed Superintendent of Sword Exercise in the Army. However, it does appears that this was based entirely on personal merit, his method being such that "even the soldiers themselves are anxious to learn it" [Aylward, p. 190]. A wonderful survival of the Angelo dynasty, a school-of-arms that became, "in the end, nothing less than a British Institution" [ibid. p. 183].

        Memoirs of the Late Thomas Holcroft Written By Himself and Continued to the Time of His Death [by WILLIAM HAZLITT] From His Diary, Notes and Other Papers

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown, 1816. First edition. Engraved portrait frontispiece after John Opie. viii,300; [iv], 283; [iv], 320 pp. 3 vols. 12mo. Bound in contemporary half brown morocco and marbled boards, marbled endpapers and edges. Joints are slightly rubbed, but a very attractive copy, overall; with the bookplate of St. Johnsonsbury Athenaeum in each volume, and the library's embossed stamp on title pages. Edited by Hazlitt Holcroft's classic autobiography, left unfinished upon his death in 1809, but completed by William Hazlitt using Holcroft's letters, diaries, and other papers. Although his other works are now largely forgotten, the MEMOIRS "helped found the nineteenth-century genre of working-class autobiography. Republished and annotated several times until 1925, it established Holcroft in liberal literary and political culture as an 'author sprung from the people' (Mitford, vol. 1, chap. 7), exemplifying the liberal ideology of the sovereign subject and public-spirited citizen" (ODNB).

        Le Tamatia, a gorge rousse, No. 44

      Paris 1816 - Jacques Barraband’s (1767-1809) engravings of birds are masterpieces of French ornithological illustration. This stunning portrait, Le Tamatia, a gorge rousse, No. 44, measures 22.5" x 16.25" and is in excellent condition with slightly cropped margins. This image was done for the distinguished ornithologist Francois Levaillant, who commissioned the artist to illustrate his landmark works on exotic birds, including the lavish and striking "Histoire Naturelle des Promerops". This bird is expertly hand-colored with and orange face and neck, brown body and beak and blue accents on the wings. Precise lines define and detail each feather on its body, giving this small bird great dimension as it perches on the branch. The collaboration of Levaillant and Barraband represented a departure from previous ornithological texts in its emphasis on beauty and luxury, with sumptuously colored and flawlessly rendered birds. Apart from their undoubted beauty, Barraband’s engravings display a scientific accuracy that few ornithological artists have matched since. The meticulous hand-colored engravings in Levaillant's publications were unmatched for the delicate modulations of tone and color, fine lines and perfect draftsmanship, making them exceptional in their richness and tonal variation. Each feather is described by dozens of parallel lines, providing remarkable detail and naturalistically textured color. Some of the prints are embellished with touches of gold leaf on the feathers of the cheeks and shoulders of the birds, emphasizing the preciousness of the plates and reproducing the iridescence of the birds’ feathers.
