      - Abbey, Travel 698; Palau 363371; Sabin 99460; Tooley 495. First printing of beautiful hand-coloured aquatint views of Argentina, all conceived and drawn from life by Emeric Essex Vidal in the years 1816 to 1818, accompanied by descriptions of the scenery, costumes and habits of the peoples and regions depicted. The plates were executed by various engravers between May and October 1820 and first issued in 6 monthly parts. 750 copies, including the present, were issued in Elephant 4to format. There was also an issue in Atlas folio and apparently a reprint in large and small 4to, still dated 1820, not normally distinguished in the literature from the present first printing (Palau and Sabin describe the work as a folio, but the Elephant 4to is often described as a folio). Tooley notes "the importance of its subject" and describes this publication as "the only notable colour plate book in English dealing with the Argentine". With the red leather Beeleigh Abbey armorial bookplate of William Alfred Foyle (1885-1963). With two stitching holes from the previous binding in the margins. With old folds in some of the folding plates and occasional minor browning, but still in very good condition and largely untrimmed, with most deckles intact. With a tiny tear in the morocco of one corner but binding otherwise fine. First printing of beautiful views of life in Argentina in the period 1816 to 1818. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Cours pratique d'éducation à l'usage des jeunes demoiselles, et convenable aux jeunes gens qui ne sont pas à porté de suivre les études de collège, ou qui les ont suivies sans succès; contenant la grammaire, précédée de principes de lecture servant d'introduction; la rhétorique, l'arithmétique, la cosmographie, la géographie, l'histoire et la mythologie, traitée séparément pour l'enfance et pour l'adolescence, par demandes et par réponses.

      KVK & WorldCat (5 copies); Quérard III, p. 245; not in Gumuchian; for the arms on the binding: Olivier, Manuel armoriées Françaises 2553, fer no. 2 (recorded on a different 1816 book). Very rare first and only edition of a compendious educational work intended for girls, dedicated (in the newly restored Bourbon monarchy) to Marie Thérèse de France (1778-1851), Duchesse d'Angoulême and daughter of King Louis XVI and Queen Marie Antoinette, the only heir directly descended from Louis XVI to survive the Revolution. The dedication itself appears in volume 1 (1817), but is noted on all three title-pages (so also 1816). The present copy is in a beautiful armorial morocco binding clearly intended as a dedication copy for Marie Thérèse, with her arms on both boards of each volume. She had married her first cousin Louis Antoine d'Artois (1775-1844), Duc d'Angoulême in 1799 (he was to be King of France for 20 minutes in 1830 when his father and he abdicated, then pretender to the throne, calling himself Louis XIX). She was nearly forty and childless when the book appeared, soon after the 1814/15 restoration of the Bourbon monarchy with her uncle as King Louis XVIII. Rather than impale the husband's and father's arms as the English did, French ladies displayed them side by side: courtoisie. The book contains lessons in all subjects girls of good family should be taught. The first volume covers French grammar and syntax, with separate courses for younger and older girls, followed by a basic course in rhetoric. The second volume covers arithmetic and geography in single, extensive courses. The third and last volume covers history and mythology, again with separate courses for the younger and older girls, both presented like a catechism. with questions and answers for the children to learn by heart. In fine condition with only a small tear in the folding table and occasional very minor foxing. Fine copy in a fine armorial dedication binding for the daughter of King Louis XVI in the restored Bourbon monarchy.

      Zus. 18 S., 12 bis 4. Konstanze (bzw. Constantine, Constantia) Gräfin Thürheim, Schwester von Lulu von Thürheim, heiratete 1816 den russischen Fürsten Andrej Kyrillowitsch (Andreas) Rasumofsky (1752-1836), dessen Vater der letzte Hetman der Ukraine war. Der Diplomat, Musikmäzen und Kunstsammler war von 1792 bis 1807 als Gesandter am Wiener Hof, wo er bei der Teilung Polens und in den Koalitionskriegen eine bedeutende diplomatische Rolle spielte. Er ließ sich nun dauerhaft in Wien nieder und war 1814 russischer Delegierter beim Wiener Kongress. Am 31. Dezember 1814 brannte das von ihm erbaute prachtvolle Palais im 3. Wiener Gemeindebezirk zum Teil nieder, wobei bedeutende Kunstschätze verlorengingen. Besondere Bedeutung gewann er für das Wiener Musikleben als Gönner von Beethoven, der ihm drei Streichquartette (Opus 59, Nr. 1, Nr. 2 und Nr. 3) und die 5. und 6. Symphonie widmete. 1808 bis 1816 unterhielt er das erste professionelle Streichquartett, das erstmals in Wien öffentliche Konzerte veranstaltete auch war er mit Joseph Haydn und Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart befreundet. Die Memoiren ihrer Schwester Lulu Gräfin Thürheim (Mein Leben. Erinnerungen aus Österreichs großer Welt 1788-1852, 4 Bde., 1913-14) sind ein bedeutendes kultur- und geistesgeschichtliches Dokument aus der Zeit der alten Donaumonarchie. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

The author discusses the controversial opinions of his days about the true cause of the demise of Pompei and Herculanum, either water or fire. This is not as strange as it seems, since it reflects, essentially, the difference between lahars and pyroclastic flows, and the fate of both towns was in fact different. Small paper chip on rear board, boards a bit rubbed. Scattered foxing, mostly light, somewhat more so on the preliminary text pages, otherwise a very good complete copy with the folded plate.

      Waterford, [Ireland]: Printed by John Bull, Bookseller, Quay, 1816. - 8vo, renewed spine with original red lettering-piece applied, gilt rules, original calf covers. 32 pp. First and only edition of this scarce account of a shipwreck in the treacherous waters of the Bay of Tramore, notable for the loss of 264 soldiers of the 59th Regiment, which was much distinguished in the Napoleonic Wars.Following the signing of the peace treaty with France on 6 December 1815, the 59th returned first to England, then on 25 January sailed from Ramsgate for Cork on board the Sea-Horse and Lord Melville transports. On the 29th, John Sullivan, the mate on the Sea-Horse and 'the only person on board acquainted with the coast,' fell from the fore-rigging and died a few hours later. The vessel was soon caught in a tremendous gale. On the 30th, she lost her fore-topmast, the mainsail was shredded, and shortly thereafter she struck in Tramore Bay. All but a few perished in heavy seas, a mere mile from shore. Also included are brief accounts of the Lord Melville and the Boadicea, both wrecked, but the former with the loss of fewer lives. OCLC records only five copies, with just one in the U.S.CONDITION: Good, title-page soiled with a few light brown stains. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Ueber die Seeräuber im Mittelmeer und ihre Vertilgung. Ein Völkerwunsch an den erlauchten Kongreß in Wien. Mit den nöthigen historischen und statistischen Erläuterungen.Lubeck, M. Michelsen, 1815. 8vo. 19th-century boards covered with paste-paper.

      - Allgemeine Zeitung (Stuttgart), no. 46 (19 April 1816), p. 185. First and only edition (the first of two issues) of a detailed report on the pirates in the Mediterranean Sea, giving some historical information, but primarily concerned with the infamous "Barbary" pirates then still active off the coasts of Algiers, Morocco and Tunis (the Barbary Coast), along with accounts of the Christian slaves that were still held in these regions. Herrmann presented this work to the Congress of Vienna to convince the representatives of the importance and urgency of bringing the piracy to an end. The Congress did set up an anti-piracy commission to discuss the problem of the Barbary pirates, but the issue remained unsettled and was addressed again at the 1818 Congress of Aix-la-Chapelle. There too, the necessary international cooperation proved difficult and the piracy continued until the French conquest of Algiers in 1830.With a library's ownership inscription on the front paste-down and a stamp on the back of the title-page. With the imprint damaged, or label and with minor foxing, but otherwise in good condition. With the paste-paper scuffed and torn, but the binding remains structurally sound. A plea for a solution to the piracy problem at the end of the Napoleonic Wars.

        The Prisoner of Chillon, and other poems; [bound with] Manfred, a dramatic poem

      London: John Murray,, 1816 & 1817. 2 works in 1, octavo. Contemporary half calf, spine gilt-rolled into compartments with floral and lyre gilt tools and red morocco title label, marbled sides, blue speckled edges. Front joint partially cracked but holding strong, wear to edges, extremities rubbed, the marbled paper scruffed in places; a very good copy. First editions, with the half-titles,of The Prisoner of Chillon (first issue, with recto of final leaf blank and verso with list of poems) and of Manfred (third issue, with the Hamlet quotation to title page). This volume combines, in attractively tooled contemporary calf and marbled boards, two of Byron's influential early publications. The Prisoner of Chillon (1816) contains creations largely resulting from Byron's summer spent in Switzerland with Percy Bysshe and Mary Shelley, most notably the long titular poem relating the imprisonment and starvation of 16th-century monk François Bonivard inspired by a visit to his prison in the Castle of Chillon on Lake Geneva, and the eschatological fantasy "Darkness" (which was Byron's contribution to the same ghost-story writing competition that resulted, most famously, in Frankenstein). Manfred, published a year after, was Byron's striking Faustian drama of a magician's refusal to bow to his spiritual masters; it inspired a number of paintings (by John Martin and Thomas Cole) and musical compositions (by Schumann, Tchaikovsky, and even Nietzsche). This copy has, laid-in, an autograph letter signed from John Murray IV (1851–1928 – the grandson of Byron's publisher) on Albermarle Street stationery, dated 9 August 1899. The letter is addressed to Rev. Canon F. Meyrick (1827–1906), who had studied at Trinity College, Oxford, and was President of the Oxford Union in 1849. He was a prolific author of theological works, several of which were published by John Murray. The letter discusses the relative rarity of Byron first editions, and the desirability of copies "in their original state". The ownership inscriptions of other members of the Meyrick family appear on the title page.

        Select Views of London.

      London: R. Ackermann,, 1816. With Historical and Descriptive Sketches of some of the most Interesting of its Public Buildings. Imperial octavo in half-sheets (275 x 185 mm). Contemporary red straight-grain half morocco, matching paper sides, smooth spine gilt in compartments, edges untrimmed. Housed in a custom red full morocco solander box. 76 hand-coloured aquatint or line-engraved plates (some of these with aquatint sky), of which 5 folding, all by Stadler or Hamble after Papworth or Pugin. With the publisher's advertisement leaf tipped to the title page. Recent armorial bookplate of George Seton Veitch to the front pastedown. Board-edges rubbed, tips bumped and slightly worn, mild soiling to sides, very faint offsetting from a few plates, the occasional minor spot or mark. An excellent copy with bright, richly coloured plates. First edition in book-form of this splendid illustrated account of Regency London, early issue with most watermarked plates dated 1816, two ("St James's Palace" and "Carlton House") dated 1817; Abbey's copy had watermarks between 1814 and 1818; copies also noted with a variant title page naming Papworth as the author, with no priority assigned. Select Views first appeared in Ackermann's Repository of Arts between 1810 and 1815; this book-edition is considered "a vivid testimony of the high standards of this monthly publication" (University of Rochester, online). The text, and the majority of the plates, are Papworth's; two illustrations, "View of the Temple of Concord in the Green Park", and "View of the Bridge & Pagoda St James's Park", are after Pugin. Papworth entered the Royal Academy Schools in 1798, becoming "noted for his mastery of perspective and classical ornament … [His] contribution to the evolution of design is particularly important, spanning, as it does, the changes in taste and fashion that mark the transition from the late Georgian to the early Victorian period. This was a time which saw the emergence of a new group of patrons—bankers, industrialists, and businessmen—who were to constitute Papworth's main clients, and for whom he not only designed estates, villas, and business premises, but also handled the internal furnishing and decorations of these buildings, as well as landscaping of the gardens" (ODNB). His contributions to the London cityscape which he depicted included new showrooms for Ackermann and various other artisans, and the first gin palace to be built in England, on Holborn Hill. Select Views is divided into the "Western" and "Eastern" Divisions, namely Westminster and the City of the London. There are descriptions and plates of Westminster Abbey, Grosvenor Square, the British Museum, Whitehall Chapel, Bank of England, Newgate and Old Bailey, as well as "representations of City churches and other topographical features now no longer in existence" (Prideaux). "Of particular topographical interest is the set of views of West End Squares… Select Views anticipates the compilation of another architect, James Elmes' Metropolitan Improvements [1827] in its illustration of the work of contemporaries and topically records the ephemeral structures which appeared in the parks to celebrate the Peace of 1814" (Adams 117). A handsome, untrimmed copy in a strictly contemporary Regency half morocco, possibly the publisher's deluxe binding, notably retaining an advertisement leaf not noted by Abbey or Tooley.

Boards rubbed and worn but a handsome very good copy.Bourne originally came to the United States in 1802 and spent half a dozen years in Baltimore where he engaged in a suit over an issue of freedom of the press, which he won. In 1810 he moved to Virginia and began preaching in the Shenandoah Valley, and in 1812 was ordained a Presbyterian minister serving at South River, Virginia. Bourne was one of the first to call for immediate emancipation in America. His reaction to slaveholding lead him to introduce an anti-slavery motion to the General Assembly which caused him to be ousted from his church. He was among the group that founded the Anti-Slavery Society in 1833. This book documents Bourne's central theme that the bible rejects slavery. William Garrison, one of the leaders of the anti-slavery cause was indebted to Bourne for many of his basic ideas. [See Dumond and Christie; George Bourne and the Book and Slavery Irreconcilable].Rare.

Taylor, a longtime legislator and twice Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, and other notable pioneers of the area. Charlton was created in 1792, out of the town of Ballston.

        Kyôchûzan (Mountains of the Heart).

      (Japan: Sûzan Shobô, 1816). Small quarto. (19)ff. A Japanese book of color woodblock prints by Kameda Bôsai (1754-1826), one of the leading painters of the Nanga or Bunjinga (literati) schools of painting. The seventeen full-page illustrations, five of which extend across the page spread, are landscapes depicting mountainous terrain, comprised of strong, black calligraphic lines with soft colors. Each includes descriptive text printed along the margins and the artist's stamp in red. The images are simple but poetic, expressing the artist's love of the natural world, with descriptions that translate as: "The refreshing sound of a mountain waterfall," "The intoxicating effect of river and mountains," "Solitary fisher on a wintry river," and "Jeweled mountains like sapphires and water like emerald," among others. With a preface and two closing notes. Working during the Edo period, Bôsai was recognized for his paintings, calligraphy, and book illustrations. In her book Block Printing and Book Illustration in Japan, Louise Norton Brown describes Kyôchûzan as "The most charming book produced by the Japanese Impressionistic School." The colophon, which is adhered to the inside of the back cover, has different lettering and paper than the rest of the book. It is dated 1809, in contradiction to the dates stated in the preface and postscripts; according to scholars of Bôsai, this was most likely the result of careless pasting by the bookbinder. Stab-bound in gray-green wrappers with a printed yellow label to the front cover. Covers and one spot on the spine show some light rubbing and wear, else a fine copy. Protected in a blue cloth chemise that closes with bone clasps. (Brown, p. 121; Keyes, #47, p. 283, similar to edition 5; Mitchell, The Illustrated Books of the Nanga, Maruyama, Shijo and Other Related Schools of Japan, pp. 383-4).

        The Book and Slavery Irreconcilable with Animadversions Upon Dr. Smith's Philosophy

      Philadelphia: Printed by J.M. Sanderson & Co.. 1816. First. First edition. 12mo. [4], 141, [15] pp. Contemporary quarter leather gilt and paper boards. Boards rubbed and worn but a handsome very good copy.Bourne originally came to the United States in 1802 and spent half a dozen years in Baltimore where he engaged in a suit over an issue of freedom of the press, which he won. In 1810 he moved to Virginia and began preaching in the Shenandoah Valley, and in 1812 was ordained a Presbyterian minister serving at South River, Virginia. Bourne was one of the first to call for immediate emancipation in America. His reaction to slaveholding lead him to introduce an anti-slavery motion to the General Assembly which caused him to be ousted from his church. He was among the group that founded the Anti-Slavery Society in 1833. This book documents Bourne's central theme that the bible rejects slavery. William Garrison, one of the leaders of the anti-slavery cause was indebted to Bourne for many of his basic ideas. [See Dumond and Christie; George Bourne and the Book and Slavery Irreconcilable].Rare.
