        The History of the Colleges of Winchester, Eton, and Westminster. With the Charter-House, the Schools of St. Paul's, Merchant Taylors, Harrow, and Rugby, and the Free-School of Christ's Hospital.

      London: R. Ackermann, 1816 - Large quarto (340 x 275 mm). Mid-20th-century straight-grain red morocco by Bayntun, flat bands gilt to spine, title gilt to second compartment, two-line frames and fan cornerpieces gilt to remaining compartments, concentric fillets gilt to sides enclosing a broad hop and vine-leaf roll and an inner dotted roll gilt, large cornerpieces built up from fan and floral tools, gilt edges, broad foliate roll gilt to turn-ins, marbled endpapers, bound brown silk page-markers. Housed in a custom red cloth slipcase. Joints very lightly rubbed in sections, a few faint, almost imperceptible scores to front board, small spot to margin of frontispiece, tissue-guard creased, mild foxing to title page, more heavily to binder's blanks, occasional, very light offsetting, small spray of pale mottling to plate 24, tiny fore-edge nick to plate 25, otherwise a few trivial spots or marks. An excellent copy with generous margins. 44 aquatints after Gendall, Mackenzie, Pugin, and Westall, and 4 line-engravings of costume after Uwin, all hand-coloured. First edition, second issue as usual, plate 26, "Charter House from the Playground", with cricketers instead of washerwomen, and plates 5 and 23, "Winchester College, from the Meadow" and "Westminster School Room", both in the preferred first state. With a copy of the very rare first issue, second state of the Charter House plate laid in, retaining the washerwomen, the title erased. (Tooley considered the first issue, first state, with the washerwomen and the original title, "Charter House School ", to be "extraordinarily rare"; he had only ever seen one copy.) The History of the Colleges, printed in a run of 1,000 copies, which were then issued in twelve monthly parts from 1 January 1816, was the culmination of the series of fine topographical books which established Ackermann's reputation, and which are "widely held to be among the most beautiful illustrated books of the first half of the nineteenth century" (ODNB); with Ackermann's Oxford and Cambridge in particular it forms a "magnificent trilogy" (Hardie). Tooley noted that "Ackermann's 'Schools' is more popular than his 'Oxford' and 'Cambridge' and occurs less frequently for sale The two states of the first issue, and the second issue are all desirable". The text is by William Combe, author of Dr Syntax, and W. H. Pyne. The plates, which are mainly after Westall, Pugin and Mackenzie, demonstrate the full range of these artists' capabilities, from detailed architectural studies to Arcadian landscapes and Regency interiors, and in this splendidly bound copy are preserved in exceptionally fresh condition, the plates watermarked 1812, the text-leaves 1816.

        A collection of the most important cases respecting patents of invention and the rights of patentees, which have been determined in the courts of law since the statute for restraining monopolies. To which are added, some practical observations resulting from the decisions on the several cases.

      London: W. Reed 1816 - 8vo., ix + (3) + 452pp., including the half-title, contemporary law calf, the sides very rubbed, neatly rebacked and labelled. A good copy preserved in a custom-made cloth slip case and with the near contemporary ownership signature of John Masterman of 65 Old Broad St. [London]> at head of title. First edition.: An authoritative commentary on patent law by a competent and long-serving employee of the Rolls Chapel Office. He observes that 'he has inserted every case he has been able to procure, which contained any new points respecting patents, or which had acquired notoriety by the magnitude and importance of the invention' [p. viii]. Of the 46 cases selected by the author it is unsurprising that Richard Arkwright, Matthew Boulton and James Watt all figure. In any event, all the cases cited had been determined between 1785 and 1816. He concludes with the following remarks: 'The foregoing cases and the few imperfect observations here offered to the public will, it is hoped, have the effect of drawing the attention of patentees more particularly to the law of the subject, and enabling them . to make their specifications more clear and explicit than in former times, whereby patents may become more certain and ingenious persons be induced to promote useful improvements in the arts and manufactures of the country .'.

        Fragments on the theory and practice of landscape gardening, including some remarks on Grecian and Gothic architecture, collected from various manuscripts, in the possession of the different noblemen and gentlemen, for use they were originally written; the whole tending to establish fixed principles in the respective arts.

      London J. Taylor 1816 - First edition. Large 4to., xii, 238 pp., 42 aquatint plates and plans including 21 hand-coloured (3 folding) and 3 tinted, one woodcut, numerous vignettes throughout, 13 plates and 2 vignettes with overlays, with half-title, bound in contemporary drab boards, printed label on spine, some neat restoration to the corners, some slight wear to the boards; all housed in a modern slipcase. The last of Repton's celebrated works. Written after the Prince of Wales had rejected Repton's plans for the Royal Pavilion, Fragments was dedicated to the Prince Regent but the book makes no mention of any commission for the prince, rather it serves as a reproach to his manners and morals. Fragments focuses on a number of aristocratic landscapes: Cobham, Woburn, Endsleigh, Ashridge, Longleat, and on small commissions such as Ealing Park and White Lodge, which took in views of royal parks. They commemorate a historically minded, public spirited nobility. Other Fragments on commissions for a range of clients, from Norfolk squires to Essex merchants, establish a polite consensus around highly detailed plans for gardens. The final Fragment on Hare Street incorprates the outlook of "venerable noblemen" such as the Duke of Portland and Viscount Torrington in the view from Repton's own garden: "To demonstrate the little consequence of quantity or value, when speaking of beauty of scenery, many places have been mentioned, which may perhaps appear too inconsiderable in a work that treats of dukedoms and royal domains: but I wish to evince, that in many cases great effect may be produced by a very contracted quantity of land nothing more is necessary than a terrace, or a few shrubs and flowers to form a frame to the picture."

        Temeridad de Martincho en la plaza de Zaragoza

      1816. Acquatinta, acquaforte e puntasecca, incisione mm 202x314, foglio mm 245x355. Stato unico. Rara prima edizione della tavola 18 tratta dal capolavoro grafico di Goya "Tauromaquia", stampata in un numero assai limitato di esemplari, come afferma Harris Impressione molto bella, nitida e contrastata su carta vergata senza filigrana (Harris: in some sets no watermark appears). Provenienza: Mostra "Goya. Cento incisioni in prima edizione", Libreria antiquaria Perini, 1982.La "Tauromaquia" comprende una serie di 33 incisioni, eseguite probabilmente nel 1815 e pubblicate da Goya in una piccola edizione, che, nonostante il soggetto caro agli spagnoli, sembra non aver avuto molto successo. Infatti un libraio tedesco la comprò quasi al completo, per rivenderla più tardi a Parigi. La seconda edizione fu pubblicata nel 1855. Questa opera fa storia a sé nell'ambito della produzione incisoria di Goya; non attinge al sarcasmo o alla tragedia come in "Los Caprichos" e "Los desastros de la guerra" ma è concepita direttamente sul reale, con una veemenza incisoria del tutto interiore. La seria nacque come idea di una storia della corrida. I primi fogli infatti rappresentanovari modo di toreare, fogli di grande interesse e qualità, ma ancora intrisi di un fare un po' pittoresco e illustrativo. A partire dal quattordicesimo foglio il trattao si fa più avvolgente e turbinoso, la scena è piena di tensione e drammaticità, sparisce ogni intento didascalico. Le acqueforti mostrano le bravure di celebri toreri e l'artista, senza abbandonare il rigore di stile e tradire la forza del suo disegno, si abbandona a un maggior pathos descrittivo. L'acquatinta si sovrappone all'acquaforte e ad essa i tratti di bulino e puntasecca, in modo da ottenere morbidi passaggi di tinte dal seppia al grigio chiaro, striscaite di luce , graffi di nero nei contorni. Considerato il più importante artista spagnolo a cavallo tra il XVIII e il XIX secolo, Goya fu per quasi sessant'anni al servizio della casa regnante spagnola come pittore, disegnatore e stampatore. La vastissima opera dell'artista risente dei diversi stili e delle vicende storiche che si avvicendarono durante la sua attività: con tratti che vanno dal tardo Rococò al Romanticismo e alle prime influenze impressionistiche, Goya ritrae la Spagna Borbonica di Carlo III, il regno di Carlo IV, l'avvento delle idee illuministe, l'occupazione francese, la guerra peninsulare, il dispotismo di Ferdinando VII con la restaurazione dell'Inquisizione, la breve parentesi del Governo Costituzionale... Goya ebbe fama internazionale già in vita, conosciuto all'estero come "Apelle spagnolo", viene considerato dalla critica il primo vero artista moderno. Bibliografia: Harris 221. Etching, burnished acquatint and drypoint. Engraving 202x314, sheet Mm 245x355 Unique state. First edition. Plate 18 from "Tauromaquia". Very good impressionand condition.The most closely etched work on the bull's neck was over-bitten. The etched lines in the left foreground almost failed to bite, and were reinforced with drypoint. In the same area there is false biting.

        VOYAGE ROUND THE world FROM 1806 TO 1812; IN WHICH JAPAN, KAMSCHATKA, THE ALEUTIAN ISLANDS, AND THE SANDWICH ISLANDS WERE VISITED. . WITH AN ACCOUNT OF THE PRESENT STATE OF THE SANDWICH ISLANDS, AND A VOCABULARY OF THEIR LANGUAGE.

      Edinburgh ARCHIBALD CONSTABLE AND COMPANY 1816 - FIRST EDITION. 8vo., 276pp., half-title, engraved folding map, partially hand-coloured; offsetting of map, some spotting. Contemporary speckled calf, red lettering piece, marbled endpapers, a fine copy. First edition of campbell's calamitous voyages around the world containing an early and valuable account of Hawaii in a fine contemporary binding. "Campbell's account of his stay in Hawaii (where he was sent to recover from frostbite) is of the greatest importance, being the first narrative from the viewpoint of a resident rather than as a visitor. His keen first-hand observations on the social structure and agricultural practices of Hawaiians are of great importance" (Forbes). Campbell was a young, poor Scottish seaman, who by a series of strange and disastrous events voyaged around the world. Bound as an apprentice to the master of a ship aged 13, a string of coincidences conspired to take him to China, Japan, and the Russian coast by the time he was only 20. During his voyage from the Kamchatka Peninsula to American his vessel was shipwrecked off the coast of Alaska, leaving only five survivors, and causing him to lose both his feet to frostbite. Building a new vessel from the wreckage they made their way to Kodiak Island near Alaska during which they were once again shipwrecked. Campbell went on to visit the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii) and South America before finally being able to return to his native Scotland in 1812. Included is a detailed account of the Sandwich Islands and a phrasebook of their language. Hill 244; Forbes 448. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Waverley; or, 'Tis Sixty Years Since.

      Edinburgh Printed by James Ballantyne and Co. for Archibald Constable and Co 1816 - Sixth edition (within two years of the first), 3 volumes, 12mo., x, 358, [1]; [4], 370; [4], 371pp., with half-titles and Preface to third edition, slight browning to extreme page edges, staining to blank preliminary endpapers to volume 1, else very good, contemporary half calf over marbled boards, spines gilt and blind-tooled, marbled edges, mildly rubbed and corners bumped, otherwise very good. An historical novel set during the Jacobite uprising of 1745, it was published anonymously in 1814 as Scott's first venture into prose fiction. It is often regarded as the first historical novel in the western tradition and became so popular that Scott's later novels were advertised as being "by the author of Waverley". His series of works on similar themes written during the same period have become collectively known as the "Waverley Novels". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Oedipus in Athens, Fingal; Dmitry Donskoy].

      Ivan Glazunov St. Petersburg 1816 - Folio (25.5 x 20 cm). Engraved portrait frontispiece by Nikolai Utkin after A. Notbek, 73pp., including half-title and title, [2]pp.; 50pp.; 82pp. Contemporary half-leather over green boards; rebacked. A sammelband of the three most famous tragedies by "the last major dramatist in the classicist tradition" (Terras). Because of an early mental illness, Vladislav Ozerov (1769-1816) wrote only five tragedies in his lifetime, but met great success. What the public liked was the atmosphere of sensibility and romanticism that the author infused into the classical forms; exactly what was later criticised by conservative critics such as Shishkov, or even Pushkin and Griboedov. Ozerov's first success was Oedipus in Athens (1804), a wry comment on Alexander I's rumoured implication in the murder of his father Paul. The public was delighted with his next tragedy, Fingal (1805), staged with effective sets representing sombre Scottish scenery. However this is Dmitry Donskoy (1807) which became Ozerov's most popular creation, thanks to its strong patriotic message: it was indeed staged within days after the Battle of Eylau, which took place in East Prussia between Napoleon's Grande Armée and an army of the Russian Empire. All works here are in second edition published the year Ozerov passed away. They are rarely found as such, being often gathered within the Works, published later two parts (1816-19), which additionally included Poliksena.

Entries in red pen denote a claim made on the policy, with amounts given as £%. The "Britannia", bound for Hudson's Bay from London, is reported "burned in Hudson's Bay" with a loss of £10,662 from a sum insured of £20,000. "Perola", bound from Oporto to Rio and " captured by an insurgent Privateer" is a total loss (£100%).

A rare survival detailing how trade and insurance were conducted. [ James Fenning and Company, Insurance Brokers, had premises at 3 Royal Exchange Street from 1817 to 1829. Partners in the firm were James Fenning, Robert Howard Shepherd and George Fenning. The firm was wound up in 1832]

A good, internally fine, copy. First, and only, edition. Probably by a pseudonymous author (William Pitt, the statesman, had died in 1806). Whoever the author, this seems to be a useful analysis of government in its various constitutional forms - constitutional monarchy, despotic government, republican, absolute monarchy, mob rule, &c. Always returning to his admiration for the British constitution itself, the author gives us also two interesting perspectives on The mob> and On the liberty of the press.> Of the 'mob' he writes thus: 'This class of men can be brought to act in concert upon no other principles than those of a frantic enthusiasm and ungovernable fury; their profound ignorance and deplorable credulity make them proper fools for any man who can inflame their passions, or alarm their superstition; and as they have nothing to lose by the total dissolution of civil society, their rage may be easily directed against any victim which may be printed out to them .'. 1816 was, of course, a year when it must have seemed to some that the 'mob' was indeed in charge (Spa Fields, Luddites, &c. &c.). The author's brief note on the liberty of the press (pp. 156-7) shows him to be both progressive and liberal in spite of mob rule: 'The liberty of the press, however, so essential to the nature of a free state, consists not in freedom from censure for any criminal matter that may be published, but in having no previous restraints laid upon publications. Every freeman has undoubtedly a right to lay what sentiments he pleases before the public; to forbid this, is to destroy the freedom of the press: but if he published what is improper, mischievous, or illegal, he must take the consequence of his own temerity. - To subject the press to the restrictive power of a licenser, is to subject all freedom of sentiment to the prejudices of one man .'.

        Tracts Relative to the Island of St. Helena; Written during a Residence of Five Years.

      London, W. Bulmer and Co for G. and W. Nicol and J. Booth, 1816. 4to. Original publisher's boards with printed label on spine; pp. xix, [1 (blank], lxxxvii, [1 (blank)], 330; aquatint frontispiece by William Daniell after Samuel Davis, 5 aquatint plates by Daniell after Davis and one engraved plan of the island by Girtin after Beatson, most plates with tissue guard, some spotting to plates, as usual, and occasionally to text, else a very good copy in the very rare original publisher's slightly worn binding; 20th-century bookplate; provenance: bookplate Cornelius Ver Heyden De Lancey inside front cover. First and only edition. Beatson was governor of St Helena from 1808 to 1813 and from the start of his governorship he determined to make the community more self-sufficient and less reliant on the East India Company: he suggested changes to the island's agricultural practices and imported Chinese labourers for the purpose, and he also tackled the problems attendant on the alcoholism widespread amongst the islanders and the soldiers. His interventions caused much disgruntlement, which culminated in a mutiny in December 1811. These topics and others are covered in the present work, which is formed of articles published by Beatson in the St. Helena Monthly Register (which he initiated in 1809 following the introduction of the first printing press to the island in 1806), and it offers an excellent account of the island at this time and of the measures taken by Beatson during his period of office. Illustrated with William Daniell's aquatints of Davis' drawings, this is an important work on St. Helena. Provenance: The Baron Cornelius Ver Heyden De Lancey (1889-1984) was a multilingual dental surgeon, doctor and lawyer of Dutch origin. Abbey, Travel 312; Gay 3088; Goldsmiths' 21458; Lowndes p. 135.

Appendix. Contemporary speckled calf, gilt line borders, gilt panelled back, gilt morocco label, gilt inner dentelles. A vg copy, internally clean and bright. A most interesting account of a white man's experience as a slave. It was at first believed that Adams' story was not true but after this story was checked by Banks, Barrow et. al, it was then considered as a factual account. The British Consul at Magadore who ransomed Adams also later confirmed the stock. Adams is one of the first three of four Americans or Europeans to describe Timbuctoo.This copy with the bookplate of Frances Mary Richardson Currer.

      Leipzig: Siegfried Lebrecht Crusius, & F. C. G. Vogel, 1798–1816 - Four volumes, octavo. Fine contemporary binding of purple morocco by J. Clarke (blind stamp on doublures), spines gilt lettered direct in compartments, wide inner dentelles gilt all round, cream endpapers, gilt edges; from the library of Theodore Williams with his gilt supralibros on both boards, latterly in the library of Frances Mary Richardson Currer, with her bookplates. A little rubbing in places, but a fine set in a superb binding. Large paper copy, from the libraries of two notable English collectors, of the best edition of Quintilian on rhetoric, the outstanding work of the German philologist Georg Ludwig Spalding. The binder John Clarke was "one of the best and most prolific London binders of the period" (Ramsden), who was binding from about 1820 to 1859. He joined in partnership with Francis Bedford in 1841 and they worked together until 1859, from when Bedford worked on his own. Nothing is recorded of Clarke after this date. Theodore Williams's books are distinguished by a different supralibros stamped in gilt on each cover: on the front, his monogram within a shield surmounted by a bird; on the back, an armorial cartouche.
