        Cambria Depicta: A Tour Through North Wales, Illustrated with Picturesque Views

      London: For E. Williams. 1816. First Edition. Hardcover. Contemporary three quarter calf over marbled boards with gilt decoration on spine and contrasting spine label bearing gilt titles, spine ends rubbed, corners rubbed and lightly bumped, small ding to foredge of upper board, light wear to joints, vertical crease in ffep, some foxing to prelims, frontis offset to title page, 71 uncoloured aquatint plates with some offsetting otherwise internally clean and bright, two leaves of publisher's advertisements at rear. , Edward Pugh (bap.1763-1813) was a miniature painter and topographer. Pugh's father was a barber and so moderate means and just how the son aquired his training as an artist is unclear but by 1793 Pugh was exhibiting miniatures at the Royal Academy in London. Pugh described himself as being of only 'moderate talent' but that talent was sufficient for him to support himself and as well as producing miniatures he is known to have provided illustrations for several books. In 1804 Pugh began what would be his most important work, 'Cambria Depicta' and spent the next nine years travelling extensively on foot through North Wales. Pugh provided original drawings for the book's aquatint illustrations, as well as writing the text, which is written in the first person and from the perspective of a native Welshman. Working broadly within the eighteenth-century tradition of topographical and antiquarian descriptive writing, Pugh's is a fresh and democratic voice, expressing ambitions for the improvement of contemporary Welsh culture, as well as relating its history and myths and regaling his readers with interesting incidents, gossip, and his idiosyncratic opinions on aesthetics and the general state of the world. , 4to 11" - 13" tall, xv [i] + 476 [4] pp .

        The Principles of Population and Production

      London - Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy, 1816 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A scarcefirst edition of this social commentary which was intednded asa criticism of Malthus' population theory. An important work. Very scarce and a lovely bright copy still in the publishers binding. It upset Malthus so much that he wrote a stinging reply to it for the fifth edition of his 'population'. John Weyland was a magistrate and land-owner. In it, Weyland argues that an increase in population would be beneficial, and that a higher birthrate in the countryside was required in order to compensate for the higher mortality rate in the towns and cities. Rather attractive 19th centurybookplate of Worcester Library to front pastedown. Gilt shelf number to spine (could probably be professionally removed if desired ). Noother markings. Condition: Inpublishers originalcloth binding with paper-covered boards. Externally sound with good patina, though with some staining to the boards, and some wear to the spine. Remarkably good for such a fragile binding type. Internally, generally firmly bound, though slightly strained in places. Pages are bright, with some occasional scattered light spots. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        Emma: a Novel. In Three Volumes

      By the Author of "Pride and Prejudice," &c. &c. Three vols. 12mo, cont. dark red paper spines & marbled boards (minor wear upper joints of Vol. I & II and the lower joint of Vol. II), spines lettered in gilt, entirely uncut. London: printed for John Murray, 1816. First edition. A fine fresh copy, wholly uncut, of Jane Austen's fourth novel, the last published in her lifetime. The binding of this copy is clearly contemporary, and almost certainly continental, very possibly German. The spines are lettered "Emma By The Author of Pride and Prejudice," and the gilt numbering is gothic in style. With half-titles in Vols. II and III only. There is in fact a reason for the missing half-title in Vol. I, as this leaf was printed as part of the last signature, and was therefore either overlooked (and left in place) or discarded by many binders of the period. Even copies in original boards sometimes lack this half-title, most notably the Mount Bellew copy, described in the 1933 Sotheby's sale catalogue as "in the finest possible state." For the matchless condition of Mount Bellew novels, and the "sensational" sale at auction of certain highspots from the library, see Sadleir, p. xx. Wanting one rear flyleaf, but a very desirable copy. Preserved in a red morocco-backed box. ❧ Gilson A8. .

        THE FLY FISHER'S GUIDE.

      G. Cruikshank, Liverpool & Longman, etc., London. - (1816) 1828 2nd edition. Ppviii,162. Eight hand-coloured engraved plates, 1 plain plate, text woodcuts. Newly rebound in green cloth. * ".Illustrated by coloured plates representing upwards of forty of the most useful flies accurately copied from nature." In 1816 Bainbridge described and illustrated in colour a calendar of natural insects of interest to the angler, and gave dressings for their artificial imitations. He paved the way for the later angler-entomologists.* This copy has a large number of blank leaves at front and rear. These have taken the brunt of previous use and foxing so, apart from some off-setting of plates, the actual text-block is very clean. The leaves at the rear have several pages of contemporary hand-written lists of flies, fly dressings and techniques. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Memoirs of My Own Times, in Three Volumes

      Philadelphia, PA: Abraham Small. Good+. 1816. Hardcover. Three hardback volumes; half-leather bindings (probably original) , brown leather spines with four raised bands, gold lettering, and leather cover corners, over marbled paper-covered boards. Binding edges are rubbed, with underlying boards just visible in places at bottom corners and bottom cover edges; front hinge is a little weak, but hinges have no splits inside or out--tight, square bindings. Spine and covers a bit scuffed, and marbled paper of covers a little darkened to 1/2" out from leather spines and leather corners. Page block edges darkened, top edges a little smudged; pages foxed, especially at margins and where pages contact print on facing pages (but this is rag paper, still flexible after nearly 200 years). Some pages have creased corners, and a couple of page corners are chipped about 1" diagonally. A few of the 12 foldout pages have creases where they shouldn't, from improper folding, and one foldout has a tear at its point of attachment. Front pastedowns have recent date stamps and address stickers, but text pages are unmarked. ; There are 3 folding facsimile documents and 7 folding charts in Volume One and 2 folding charts in Volume Three (as called for in Howes: Final Edition W428). Wilkinson was a general during the Revolutionary War and had some kind of involvement with Aaron Burr's conspiracy. He seems to have spent lots of time defending himself in front of courts-martial. Set is complete as issued but lacks the maps volume that was issued later. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; [xvi] 855 [44] + 578 [260] + 496 [62] pages .
