        De Institutione Oratoria libri duodecim ad codicum veterum fidem recensuit et annotatione explanavit Georg. Ludovicus Spalding A.M.

      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.

        Atlas to Thompson's Alcedo; or Dictionary of America & West Indies; collated with all the most recent authorities and composed chiefly from scarce and original documents, for that work, by A. Arrowsmith, Hydrographer to His Royal Highness the Prince Regent [with] The Geographical and Historical Dictionary of America and the West Indies, Containing an Entire Translation of the Spanish work of Colonel Don Antonio de Lacedo. with large additions and complications.

      [atlas] Printed by George Smeeton, 1816; [text] James Carpenter, [1812-1815]., London, - The Earl of Lonsdale's copy of Thompson's Alcedo Folio, (660 by 525mm) small format index leaf mounted on front pastedown (otherwise mounted on guards throughout), five wall maps, hand-coloured in outline, by Aaron Arrowsmith, on nineteen double-page or folding engraved sheets, each numbered on a small early paper label pasted to the verso of each sheet ("North America" on three sheets [numbered "I"- "III"]; "United States" on four sheets ["IV"-"VII"]; "Mexico" on four sheets ["VIII"-"XI"]; "West Indies" on two sheets ["XII"-"XIII"]; "South America" on six sheets ["XIV"-"XIX"]), full calf, with blind stamp coat of arms of Hugh Cecil Earl of Lonsdale, to upper board, spine in eight compartments separated by raised bands, gilt; [with] Five volumes, quarto (270 by 210mm), 2pp. preliminary list of subscribers in first volume, contemporary calf, with blind stamp coat of arms of Hugh Cecil Earl of Lonsdale, to upper board gilt, spine in six compartment separated by raised bands gilt. The Londsdale copy of the most important printed atlas of the Americas of its time, containing foundation wall maps of the region by the greatest British cartographer of his generation. The atlas is accompanied by a lovely first edition set of the text of Thompson's translation and expansion of Alcedo's classic work on the Americas. "Aaron Arrowsmith, Hydrographer to the King of England and Geographer to the Prince of Wales, was the most influential and espected map publisher of the first quarter of the nineteenth century. His role in cartographic production was to gather the best information available from a wide variety of sources, weigh the relative merits of conflicting data, and compile from this the most accurate depiction possible of an area. Arrowsmith accomplished this synthesis better than any other commercial map maker of his day and, as a result, his maps were the most sought after and highly prized on three continents" (Martin and Martin). Arrowsmith specialized in large multi-sheet maps. These were generally separately issued and are now very scarce. His five great wall maps of the Americas were particularly well received and became "foundation or prototype maps of the area and were extensively copied by other publishers" (Tooley). These five wall maps were of North America (first published in 1795), the United States (1796), the West Indies (1803), Mexico (1810), and South America (1810). They were generally republished many times, as new information became available. Thomas Jefferson considered the 1803 edition the best map of the continent in print at the time, and it was used extensively in planning Lewis and Clark's expedition (1805-06). Likewise, the 1814 edition of North America (offered here) was the first map to make use of Lewis and Clark's map of the same year, and the first to combine Lewis and Clark and Zebulon Pike's data onto one map. The present atlas is an early version with the following maps: 1) A Map Exhibiting all the New Discoveries in the Interior Parts of North America.A. Arrowsmith.January 1st 1795 Additions to 1811 Additions to June 1814. 2) A Map of the United States of America Drawn from a number of Critical Researches By A. Arrowsmith.Jan 1st 1796. Additions to 1815. 3) A New Map of Mexico and adjacent provinces compiled from original documents by A. Arrowsmith.5th October 1810. Additions to 1815. 4) Chart of the West Indies and Spanish Dominions in North America by A. Arrowsmith. 1803. Additions to 1815. 5) Outlines of the Physical and Political Divisions of South America: Delineated by A. Arrowsmith partly from scarce and original documents published before the year 1806 but principally from manuscript maps & surveys made between the years 1771 and 1806. Corrected from accurate astronomical observations to 1810.Published 4th January 1811. Additions to 1814. Index to atlas mounted on front pastedown. Lowndes I, 26; James C.

        Recueil d'Essais Lithographiques dans les différents genres de dessin tels que manière de Crayon, de la plume, du pinceau et de lavis exécutés par le Procédé de…

      Lithographed title with vignette depicting both sides of the medallion of the Société lithographique de Mulhouse, lithographed leaf of table of contents, & eight lithographed plates (two in color). Large 4to, later blue wrappers (title a little dusty), newly stitched, uncut. Paris: "chez l'Auteur Rue Casette No. 18," [1816]. First edition of one of the great rarities of lithography. Engelmann (1788-1839), a native of Mulhouse, first learned of lithography in 1813 and began to experiment on some stones. Realizing he needed more information, he decided to go to Munich to see the process at first hand. "For several weeks Engelmann studied the art in the studios of Stuntz where Strixner and Piloty worked. He had his own press constructed and produced some lithographs in the tinted style which had become so popular in Germany. Like Lasteyrie, whom he is supposed to have met in Munich, Engelmann returned [to Mulhouse] with a press, stones, and all the equipment needed to set up a lithographic establishment… "Engelmann must have realized that Mulhouse was not the best place in which to practise lithography, especially if he was interested in getting artists to draw on stone, and on 15 June 1816 he followed Lasteyrie to Paris and set up another printing works with his brother-in-law Pierre Thierry at rue Cassette, no. 18… "Within a few years artists flocked to his press, and it soon far outstripped that of Lasteyrie in both size and reputation. Probably in the same year that Lasteyrie published his Recueil de différens genres d'impressions lithographiques Engelmann produced [the present work]. It was a smaller but rather more competent production with a pen-drawn map, an imitation wood-engraving, a sheet of transferred writing, two examples of tinted lithography, and drawings in either ink or chalk by Girodet, H. Vernet, Mongin, and Engelmann himself [including a fine self-portrait]. The competition between the houses of Engelmann and Lasteyrie was obviously keen and, as a contemporary English writer observed, this helped the art to make rapid progress there. In the long run it was Engelmann who took the lead…Engelmann was concerned with lithography throughout his life and at his death left a flourishing press to his son. For twenty years he was responsible for most of the major technical developments of the process…Already by 1820 his was probably the leading press in Europe, and certainly so for that branch of lithography in which France has ever since led the work, the production of artists' prints. More than anyone else in Europe it was Engelmann who, by virtue of his technical improvements, clear descriptions, and skilful printing, encouraged artists to draw on stone; and the real growth of lithography as far as the artist was concerned really dates from the establishment of his press in Paris."-Twyman, Lithography 1800-1850, pp. 52-55. Fine copy of a very rare book, preserved in a box.

Uncut in original grey-blue paper boards, white paper backstrips, printed paper spine labels. Housed in a custom brown cloth chemise and brown crushed morocco pull-off case. Inked numerals to front endpapers. Some judicious restoration to spines, boards a little marked, a little light scattered foxing and browning, a little wear to tips, vol. II lacking front free endpaper. An excellent copy. First edition of the last completed of Jane Austen's novels, with the half-titles (that for volume I moved to its natural position at the front of the volume, from its printing at sig. P6). The Frank J. Hogan copy, with his morocco bookplate to the front pastedowns. This set has the price and two horizontal rules trimmed from bottom of the printed labels, as noted by Gilson. This is one of two copies known "in which the price and lower thin-thick rule have been cut away from the labels". The practice was more commonly seen with Austen's next (and posthumous) work, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion. Austen 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, 2,000 copies were printed. Emma is the only one of Jane Austen's novels to bear a dedication, unwillingly made, to the Prince Regent, the arrangement of which generated a richly comic correspondence between the author and the Prince Regent's librarian.

        ALASTOR; OR, THE SPIRIT OF SOLITUDE; AND OTHER POEMS

      London: Baldwin, Cradock, And Joy, 1816. First Edition. Hardcover. Title page tipped in. Mild foxing, a few pages with light stains. Very Good example of an important and scarce title. Small octavo (4-1/4" x 7") bound in later green polished calf-backed marbled boards with matching calf corners, spine lettered and decorated in gilt; vi, [1], 101 pages. Complete but for the final blank (H4) and the original endpapers. Composed in the house rented by Shelley near Windsor, the poem was inspired by a tour of the Thames with Thomas Love Peacock, Mary Godwin, and Charles Clairmont. He evokes the figure of the accursed poet who can communicate only through the mediation of the "Spirit of solitude." Despite a lukewarm reception, the poem had an immediate impact on contemporary poets including Keats in ENDYMION. Among the eleven shorter poems included with the title poem is "Mutability," which was partly quoted by Mary Shelley in her FRANKENSTEIN (1818). This obscure but splendid allegory was the first poem in which Shelley's genius was fully displayed" (Hayward, 226). "It is generally conceded that in ALASTOR Shelley showed himself a greater master of blank verse than any other poet of the time" (Granniss Shelley 32).

      A & J Aikman, Edinburgh 1816 - Elephant folio, ff. [174 (of 176)]. A run from issue 773 to 866, lacking 16 issues (789, 802, 816-7, 822, 827, 830-1, 833, 837, 840, 842, 844-5, 851, 864) and with the second page of two issues of the Star (773, 828) torn out, and a couple of corners torn away with loss to text. Early nineteenth-century half calf, marbled boards, spine divided by raised bands between double gilt rules, red morocco label, another compartment dated in gilt direct. Variable soiling and spotting, some wear to edges, leaves at beginning and end rather creased vertically. Binding rubbed, joints cracking at ends but strong, rear flyleaf mostly torn away, marbled paper partially worn from boards. Almost all issues with red tax stamp, first issue with early ink note for the binder in upper margin, some ink corrections in the text. An almost-complete year of issues from the Edinburgh Star, a twice-weekly paper 'popular with the working classes' (Edinburgh History of Popular Literature, v. 2, p. 312), which ran from 1808 to 1826. Early issues were much occupied with reports concerning the Napoleonic Wars, though by 1816 these were trailing off, leaving more space for local news. The foreign reports are still substantial, including in this volume mentions of the repercussions of the Year Without a Summer, along with reports of news from America (North as well as South). The local news includes details of Leith shipping arrivals and departures alongside as market figures and social events, as well as more usual legal and government news. In addition to the run of the Star there are several individual issues from other papers, all but two also Edinburgh publications; the exceptions are the Morning Chronicle from London and the New-York National Advocate, this latter with reports concerning the progress towards the abolition of slavery in Britain and toleration of Jews.

        Two holograph manuscript notebooks containing original poetry, written within ornate circular frames, all executed in brown pen and ink in the accomplished calligraphic hand of the author.

      Bristol: May 28, 1816 and June 9, 1819. 2 vols, 24 x 37 cm and 18.5 x 24.5 cm, both manuscripts stitched into contemporary paper wrappers with elaborate calligraphic designs on both upper and lower covers. The first one is titled "Joseph Ely His Book / Bristol May 28, 1816" (written inside the front wrapper); it has 11 leaves; the second has the manuscript title "The Following Composed and Executed for Amusement / Joseph Ely. / Bristol / June the 9th, 1819;" it has 13 leaves. The second also has the small blind-stamp in the lower margins of "Bally and Co., Bath." Two examples of the extraordinary work of Joseph Ely, an amateur poet of Bristol and skillful calligrapher. Little is recorded about Ely, except that between 1816 and 1823 he composed poetical manuscripts in a fine calligraphic hand, and dated them as above. They were apparently for his personal enjoyment and perhaps for distribution to friends, though no presentation copies are recorded. Several examples of his manuscripts have survived, no doubt due to their unusual artistry. The Pforzheimer Collection at the New York Public Library has nine examples, dated between July 17, 1819 and June 16, 1823; Winterthur Museum has one example dated Dec. 19, 1817; and McMaster University, Ontario, has one example, dated Nov. 14, 1817. The manuscript dated 1816 contains eleven poems, with a "Poetical Preface to the Reader" in which Ely writes that he had written two hundred twenty nine Compositions in . . . five hundred ninety one borders," and in a note at the end of the poem is stated that this is the "The twenty third book . . ." The poems, each of which is individually signed and dated, include acrostics, "Poetical Thoughts" on education, on ministers of the state and the gospel, on hearing a sermon, on English history, etc. In fine condition.

        Autograph Letter Signed ('Thomas Telford') to Mr ?Shlohtigroll, 1 page 8vo (traces of mounting to the reverse), Salopian [Coffee House], 1 April 1816.

      - Inviting his foreign friend to dine with him the following Friday and 'see the fine drawings I mentioned to you'. Written during the period when Telford was involved not only with the Caledonian Canal in Scotland but with his Swedish venture, the extension of the Trollhätte Canal from Lake Vänern to Söderköping to meet the Baltic. Telford had been invited to undertake this commission by Count Bogislaus von Platen, a distinguished naval officer and diplomat, later governor of Norway, who was to become a lifelong friend. The engineer visited Sweden in connection with the work on only two occasions1, and von Platen came to England for the only time in England in 1822. The name Shlohtigroll, which is untraced, has a certain Swedish ring about it; perhaps he was a friend or emissary of the Count. ______________(1) For Telford's first overseas visit he took the precaution of being well prepared: '[He] had packed enough supplies to carry him across the Atlantic. As well as buying sets of blankets, sheets and pillows he placed an order with Bell Rannie & Co. . that included included two dozen bottles of Madeira and the same of port; three dozen bottles of cider; six dozen of porter; half a dozen each of gin and brandy; a range of teas; three bacon hams; three pickled tongues; and a vast quantity of sugar and biscuits.' (Man of Iron / Thomas Telford and the Building of Britain, by Julian Glover, 2017, pages 210-211).

        Future President, General William Henry Harrison, Successfully Defends Himself Against Graft Charges

      Northbend, OH 1816 - Autograph Letter Signed as Congressman, to Peter Hagner. Northbend, [Ohio], September 18, 1816. 3 pp, 7 1/2 x 12 1/2 in., On two conjoined sheets. During a Congressional inquiry that he requested to clear his name, Harrison answers criticism regarding an incident during his command of the Northwestern Army during the War of 1812. Here, the future president provides lengthy details to the Department of War about "supplying the troops at Detroit under orders given by General Cass & Colo Butler" in order "to supply the neglect of the contractor in furnishing the troops then." Partial Transcript"When I received your letter containing a Statement of Certain Claims made by Mr. Orr against the Government I appointed a day to meet Capt. Oliver in Cincinnati for the purpose of examining the statements together that we might write in affording you all the light on the Subject which it was in our power to afford. But when I expected to meet him, I found that he had taken a trip to some part of Virginia. Two absences from home since that period and the illness of my wife has prevented me from attending heretofore to your request. I enclose you the statement with the several items numbered & here follow my remarks on each.No.1 I made in the course of the last Winter a long statement containing all the circumstances which authorised this purchase to be laid before a Committee of Congress. This statement together with my letter to the Speaker of the House of Representatives was referred by that House to the Secretary of War amongst the documents which accompanied it were the original letters from Gen Gano to me describing his situation & that of the Garrisons of Sandusky & Put in Bay & the neglect of the Contractor to broker the necessary supplies. A referrence to these documents will furnish all the information which I can give. Capt. Olliver says that the documents which accompanied his accounts will also shew the Correctness of his proceedings.No 2 & 3 I do not know from the manner in which these two charges is made to what purchases they refer. I suppose however that they refer to the purchase of Beef Cattle made by Mr. Piatt in the fall of 1813 & to the Purchases made by him in the Winter following winter for the supplying the troops at Detroit under orders given by General Cass & Colo Butler in the first instance & afterwards repeated by me. The statement to which I have referred above in the possession of the Secretary of War will shew that in June 1813 I offered to deliver to Mr. Orr the whole of the public provisions, he refused to take them upon the only terms which I thought proper to offer them.In the Month of September following when the Army was about to embark on the lake in prosecution of the objects of the campaign I believe he would have taken them - but at that period I thought it proper to retain them & to continue to issue them by means of the Commissariat which had been previously organized for the following reasons. - After the Contractor had refused to take them in June I did not think that the Government were obliged to deliver them When they had been bought at great expense, difficulty & risque to the very margin of the lake From a calculation which was made by Col. Bartlett the Quarter Master General it appeared that the United States would gain a considerable sum by pursuing this course - as the state in which the provisions then were would enable the commissioner to issue them with little or no loss . The other considerable purchase of provisions made by the Commissary was done by the direction of Gen Cass & Col. Butler (who successively commanded at Detroit) to supply the neglect of the contractor in furnishing the troops then.7. The march of the Army up the Thames was certainly rapid but I cannot conceive why it should be called Desultory. - the rear of the Army was safe & the Contractors proper I should suppose might have taken care of the Hides - Altho not wi.
