        The Narrative of Robert Adams

      John Murray, London 1816 - a sailor who was wrecked on the western coast of Africa in the year 1810, was detained three years in slavery by the Arbs of the Great Desert and resided several months in the city of Timbuctoo. xxxix + 231 pp. Folding engraved map showing routes. 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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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.

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.

        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.

        Emma:

      London: for John Murray,, 1816. A Novel. In three volumes. By the Author of "Pride and Prejudice," &c. &c. 3 volumes, duodecimo. 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.

        Emma: A Novel. In three volumes. By the Author of "Pride and Prejudice," &c. &c.

      London: for John Murray, 1816 - 3 volumes, duodecimo. 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.

        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.

        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.
