        History of the Renowned Prince Arthur, King of Britain, The

      , 1816 1816. first edition. The Earliest Obtainable “King Arthur” in Original BoardsMALORY, Thomas. The History of the Renowned Prince Arthur, King of Britain; with His Life and Death, and All His Glorious Battles. Likewise, the Noble Acts and Heroic Deeds of His Valiant Knights of the Round Table. In Two Volumes. London: Printed for Walker and Edwards…, 1816.Seventh edition of the English epic, preceded only by the editions of 1485, 1498, 1529, 1557, 1578, and 1634, all but the last virtually unobtainable. Two twenty-fourmo volumes (5 5/8 x 3 1/8 inches; 143 x 79 mm.). xxxii, 468; [4], xvi, 488 pp. Complete with half-titles. Each volume with engraved frontispiece and added engraved title.Publisher’s tan printed paper over boards, uncut and largely unopened, rebacked with the original spines laid down. With the full title-page on the front boards within a decorative border, with the price (“Price 9s.”) beneath the date, and with publisher’s advertisements within a decorative border on the rear boards (listing fifty-nine titles, of which “King Arthur, 2 vols. 9 0” is the last one). Frontispieces and engraved titles lightly foxed. Each volume with an ownership signature on the front free endpaper. A wonderful copy, remarkably preserved in its original extremely fragile binding. Copies of this edition in the original printed boards are truly rare, as nearly all were rebound in leather. Housed together in a half black morocco clamshell case with two spines.This was the first publication of Malory’s Morte d’Arthur since the Stansby edition of 1634 (the first to be modernized to Jacobean standards). It responded to the passage of 182 years without an edition in print and a resulting demand that produced two competing editions in 1816 (the other edition is nearly identical to this one except that it was published in three volumes). No bibliography addresses the priority of the 1816 editions. However, the preface of the three-volume edition rails against the competition of this edition, to it’s unimaginable that our edition didn’t already exist in the marketplace to stimulate the attack. This edition is also by far the scarcer of the two.“The first printing of Malory's work was made by Caxton in 1485; it proved popular, and was reprinted, with some additions and changes, in 1498 and 1529 by Wynkyn de Worde who succeeded to Caxton’s press. Three more editions followed at intervals down to the time of the English Civil War: William Copland’s (1557), Thomas East’s (1585), and William Stansby’s (1634), each of which manifested additional changes and errors (including the omission of an entire leaf). Thereafter the book went out of fashion until the time of the Romantic revival of interest in all things medieval; the year 1816 saw a new edition by Walker and Edwards, and another one by Wilks, both based on the 1634 Stansby edition” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Le_Morte_d'Arthur).Gaines A7

        The Antiquary

      20 - Edinburgh - Archibald Constable andCo,Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, 1816. 20 - Edinburgh - Archibald Constable andCo,Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, 1816 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A uniformly bound set of Walter Scott's novels The Antiquary and The Monastery: a Romance. Containing both volume I and II of The Antiquary, both second editions published the same year as the first. As well as a first edition of The Monastery: a Romance volume II. The Antiquaryis Scott's only gothic novel, redolent with family secrets, stories of hidden treasure and hopeless love, with a mysterious, handsome, young man, benighted aristocracy and a night-time funeral procession to a ruined abbey, no less. But the romance and mystery is counterpoised by some of Scott's more down-to-earth characters, and grittily unromantic events. The Monastery: a Romance is a historical novel. Along with The Abbot, it is one of Scott's Tales from Benedictine Sources and is set in the time of Mary, Queen of Scots, and the Elizabethan period. Condition: In half calf bindings with marbled boards and gilt lettering to the spines. Externally, all are lightly rubbed with wear to extremities, denting to the spine of The Antiquaryvolume II. Front hinge is strained to both volume II's. Internally, all are firmly bound with bright pages. Generally clean, aside from the odd spot, and tide marks to the endpapers and advertisements of The Antiquaryvolume I and II. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        Mémoire sur le sucre de betteraves ; Par M. le Comte CHAPTAL, Membre de la première classe de l'institut royal, chevalier de l'ordre du roi, grand-officier de la légion d'honneur, etc. Lu à la première Classe de l'Institut royal de France, le 23 octobre 1815.

      A Paris, de l'imprimerie de Madame Huzard 1816 - Livre ancien 60 pp. Un important mémoire du Comte Chaptal. Depuis le blocus anglais sur l'importation de la canne-à-sucre des colonies françaises, la production de sucre sur le territoire national devint un enjeu économique majeur sous l'Empire. Entre différentes options, dont celle de l'érable qui était perçue comme viable et rentable, l'Etat privilégie plutôt l'exploitation du sucre extrait de la culture de la betteraves. Chaptal comprit rapidement les bénéfices que l'Etat français pouvait tirer de cette nouvelle industrie, et en moins de dix ans (1811), la France put produire 100 000 tonnes de sucre sur le territoire nationale, la plaçant ainsi en tête des nations productrices en Europe. Cet important mémoire, publié après les Cent Jours, entérine cette découverte majeure et pérennise par l'autorité de son rédacteur cette nouvelle industrie française. Condition : Broché.

INCLUDING A NARRATIVE OF THE AUTHOR’S SHIPWRECK ON THE ISLAND OF SANNACK, AND HIS SUBSEQUENT WRECK IN THE SHIP’S LONG BOAT. WITH AN ACCOUNT OF THE PRESENT STATE OF THE SANDWICH ISLANDS, AND A VOCABULARY OF THEIR LANGUAGE

      Edinburgh, 1816. Edinburgh, 1816. b/w folding map. 288 pp. Campbell was a Scotsman who sailed to China on an East India Company ship, then joined an American vessel which took him to Japan, Kamchatka and Alaska. His ship was wrecked off the coast there and he wintered in a Russian settlement at Kodiak. In the course of these tribulations both his feet froze and were amputated. After his stay in Kodiak he sailed to Hawaii. There, he was befriended by King Kamehameha I, and became the Royal sailmaker. Campbell gives detailed accounts of all his ports and adventures, including his later career as an innkeeper and a butcher in Rio Janeiro. Various bibliographies testify to the importance of his narrative. “Of great value is his description of the Hawaiian Islands.” -- Hill 245. “Campbell’s description of Kodiak is particularly valuable.” -- Lada Mocarski 71. “He identifies some of the earliest foreign residents of the islands, a number of whom were Botany Bay men. His keen firsthand observations on the social structure and agricultural practices of Hawaiians are of great importance” -- Forbes, 461. See also Hunnewell p. 29. Judd 30.

        A VOYAGE ROUND THE WORLD, FROM 1806 TO 1812; IN WHICH JAPAN, KAMSCHATKA, THE ALEUTIAN ISLANDS, AND THE SANDWICH ISLANDS, WERE VISITED. INCLUDING A NARRATIVE OF THE AUTHOR’S SHIPWRECK ON THE ISLAND OF SANNACK, AND HIS SUBSEQUENT WRECK IN THE SHIP’S LONG BOAT. WITH AN ACCOUNT OF THE PRESENT STATE OF THE SANDWICH ISLANDS, AND A VOCABULARY OF THEIR LANGUAGE

      Edinburgh, 1816. b/w folding map. 288 pp. Campbell was a Scotsman who sailed to China on an East India Company ship, then joined an American vessel which took him to Japan, Kamchatka and Alaska. His ship was wrecked off the coast there and he wintered in a Russian settlement at Kodiak. In the course of these tribulations both his feet froze and were amputated. After his stay in Kodiak he sailed to Hawaii. There, he was befriended by King Kamehameha I, and became the Royal sailmaker. Campbell gives detailed accounts of all his ports and adventures, including his later career as an innkeeper and a butcher in Rio Janeiro. Various bibliographies testify to the importance of his narrative. “Of great value is his description of the Hawaiian Islands.” -- Hill 245. “Campbell’s description of Kodiak is particularly valuable.” -- Lada Mocarski 71. “He identifies some of the earliest foreign residents of the islands, a number of whom were Botany Bay men. His keen firsthand observations on the social structure and agricultural practices of Hawaiians are of great importance” -- Forbes, 461. See also Hunnewell p. 29. Judd 30. Private library stamp at bottom of title page. A very nice copy in contemporary calf binding rebacked to match, with red spine label.

        Five autograph letters signed

      Woolwich 1816 - Gregory, Olinthus Gilbert (1774-1841). Five autograph letters signed, three to Robert Baldwin, of the publishing firm Baldwin, Cradock & Joy, and two to an unidentified officer of the Woolwich Institution for the Advancement of Literary, Scientific and Technical Knowledge. Woolwich, Sept. 28, 1816 - July 16, 1838. 11pp. total. Various sizes (the largest 251 x 203 mm.). One letter mounted with some fraying of the front edge (slightly affecting a few words), another with a small paper flaw, light soiling, but very good.From British mathematician and writer Olinthus Gregory, professor of mathematics at the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich, author of works on mathematics, astronomy, mechanics, etc., and editor of both the Gentleman's Diary and Ladies' Diary. Gregory played a role in the controversy surrounding the Trigonometrical Survey of Great Britain, later known as the Ordnance Survey. The survey, which had begun in 1791, was opposed for political reasons by Royal Society President Sir Joseph Banks, who in 1812 published in the Philosophical Transactions a memoir by Don José Rodriguez attacking the survey and its leader, Col. William Mudge. Gregory exposed Banks's machinations in a paper published in the Philosophical Magazine, which was later collected in Dissertations and Letters, by Don Joseph Rodriguez, the Chevalier Delambre, Baron de Zach, Dr. Thomas Thomson, Dr. Olinthus Gregory, and Others . . . Tending Either to Impugn or to Defend the Trigonometrical Survey of England and Wales (1815). Gregory's 1817 letter to Baldwin, one of the publishers of the Annals of Philosophy, discusses this controversy, noting that its effect had been to produce "a strong current in Col. Mudge's favour among all the men of science in Europe . . . the French Institute has made Col. Mudge a member, expressly on account of his survey: and immediately after this, the Royal Society, or I should rather say Sir Jos. Banks's party, who had for years been doing every thing to sink his reputation, change their conduct, flatter and fawn upon him, elect them into their councils . . ."Gregory's remaining letters to Baldwin discuss literary matters, including his "account of Biot's new work [Traité de physique (1816)] for the next no. of the British review." His later letters, written to an unnamed official at Woolwich Institution for the Advancement of Literary, Scientific and Technical Knowledge, include a long discussion as to why the Institution's reading room should not provide daily newspapers for its largely working-class clientele!

In 1823 he was collated by the archbishop of York to the prebendal stall of Normanton in Southwell collegiate church. Lord Eldon presented him to the rectory of Wing in 1827, mainly on the strength of his book Body and Soul (1822), though its publication provoked some controversy, especially with Revd J. H.

        The Lives of the Most Eminent English Poets

      London - Nichols and Son, F.C. and J. Rivington, A. Strahan et al, 1816. London - Nichols and Son, F.C. and J. Rivington, A. Strahan et al, 1816 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An uncommon corrected edition of Samuel Johnson's ever impressive Lives of the Poets. Bound in leather with gilt lettering and decoration. A New Edition, Corrected. Complete in Three Volumes. Samuel Johnson's major lives were quickly recognized as setting a new standard for English literary biography. In particular, the surveys of Cowley, Milton, Dryden, Swift, and Pope exemplify Johnson's serious concern with the deepest springs of creativity, as well as his ability to explore with considerable insight some individuals whose character and work aroused profound antipathy in him. Even in an age of greater theoretical sophistication, his reading of mainstream poetry from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries remains canonical, by reason of its attention to verbal detail, its decisive judgments, and its robust expression. (DNB)Condition: The bindings are tight and firm. The boards are held by the cords only, and could possibly detach in the post even after careful packaging. There is wear to the extremities, including loss to the spine leather, with slight edge wear. The spine leather has been previously repaired. Internally the pageshave very slight browning with background foxing and the very occasional mark. Overall the condition isfair only, with a very good interior..

Contemporary manuscript notations. A good copy. Written as a series of letters to his mother and children, together with his dying address. Lung was tried and executed for the murder of his wife. The tone of the letters is reproachful, with the author citing several false and injurious statements made by his mother. Alcohol is to blame for most of the trouble with his wife: "We were now both of us, very angry, and conducted most imprudently and wickedly. We should not have done so had we not both been in a state of intoxication. And whenever we abused each other, as we often did, in a brutal and shocking manner, it was in consequence of drinking too much spirits; but when we got over it, we were always sorry for it."

        Lettres sur le Caucase et la Géorgie suivies d’une relation d’un Voyage en Perse en 1812. Relation d’un Voyage a Tauris en 1812

      Hamburg: Chez Perthes & Besser ("Se vend ?t. Petersbourg chez Pluchart, ?ondres chez T. Boosey, ?aris, 1816. Hamburg: Chez Perthes & Besser ("Se vend à St. Petersbourg chez Pluchart, à Londres chez T. Boosey, à Paris chez Treuttel & Wurtz."), 1816. Octavo (20.5 x 13 cm). Later quarter imitation leather binding; [3], 4-230, [3], 234-353, [2] pp. [1] map and 4 engraved vignettes in the text (signed S. D. Bendixen and F. A. de la Belle); errata page. Inventory stamp of the Gatchina Palace Library (Gatchinskii dvorets); half title signed "Casimir". Edges of boards lightly rubbed, light stains to front endpapers, p. 163 with neat tape repair, a few light stains/foxing throughout, two pages with tiny hole, one marginal annotation in pencil. This account of Frederika Afanas'eva von Freygang’s (nee Kudriavskaia) journey to the Caucasus in the years 1811-1812 is one of the earliest such accounts by a Russian woman writer. The correspondence sent by Frederika to her husband (then head of a military command to the Transcaucasus region during the latter stages of the Russo-Persian War of 1804-1813) chronicles her arduous journey through the Russian steppe and the main range of the Caucasus Mountains with her three children. The descriptive passages of the people, customs, and geography encountered along the way are rendered in the flowing French idiom of the Russian aristocracy and represent a valuable record of the early era of Russian colonial expansion in the region. Freygang’s impressions and descriptions were of undoubted importance to the military administration of the time and to the aristocratic readership, as the provenance of this copy illustrates (it stems from the Imperial collection of the Gatchina Palace Library). An important work from an early nineteenth-century female author. The second part of the book, by Frederika Freygang’s husband Wilhelm, is a historico-political account of the Transcaucasus region compiled from notes taken in the field. Freygang’s military sorties took him to the territories of the present day nations of Georgia, Armenia, Iran, and Azerbaijan, and his account of these lands, then mostly under the administration of the Persian Empire, is an early exemplar of the colonial and orientalist works that would come into vogue with the reading public in the following decades. Together an early and important work with broad anthropological and historical interest. Only one other copy attested in the trade.
