        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.

        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).

        Documents manuscrits sur les enfants abandonnés en 1816 en Dordogne (arrondissement de Nontron : six lettres autographes datées et signées (échange épistolaire entre le Préfet de la Dordogne et le Sous-Préfet de Nontron sur le sort des enfants

      1816 - Enfants trouvés et abandonnés de la Gironde, de la Dordogne et du Périgord au XIX° siècle : A la campagne où ils grandissaient on les appelait « bourdeaux », en référence aux lieux de mauvaise vie, de mauvaises mères, des bordels. Lorsqu'une mère, en abandonnant son enfant, s'attache à envelopper cet abandon d'un épais mystère, l'enfant sera ordinairement illégitime, quelquefois adultérin. Ordinairement la mère a besoin du secret, parce qu'elle veut sauver sa réputation ; si elle n'a de moyens d'existence que dans son travail, elle craint aussi de perdre la position qui le lui procure. Si elle fille encore, elle appréhendera de voir s'évanouir pour elle l'espoir d'un établissement. Mais des personnes aisées, et même riches, recourent aussi à ce moyen de voiler leur faute. Le dépôt dans un hospice leur assure un secret bien plus inviolable qu'un placement en nourrice qui appellerait des confidents.Quelquefois pour mieux s'assurer du secret, on fait porter l'enfant dans un hospice plus ou moins éloignés ; il y a des gens qui font de ce transport un objet habituel de commerce. La Manufacture pouvait se définir comme un rouage essentiel de la direction des hôpitaux de la ville de Bordeaux, comme un lieu de passage ou comme un lieu de vie. C'est à la Manufacture que se situaient les services qui traitaient de la vie des enfants qui pouvaient être regroupés en trois catégories en 1811. Les enfants trouvés dont les parents ne sont pas connus - ce sont les plus nombreux jusqu'en 1852. Les enfants abandonnés nés de parents connus qui d'abord élevés par eux ou par d'autres personnes, en sont délaissés, sans qu'on sache ce que les pères et mères sont devenus. Les subsistants : leur parents sont connus. Ils sont placés provisoirement. Par la suite, certains jeunes ont été classés dans les indigents, orphelins, etc. C'est par le moyen du Tour que le nourrisson faisait son entrée officielle dans la société. « Nous ignorons comment été faite la boîte de l'Hôpital Saint-Louis, mais nous savons mieux qu'elle était celle de l'Hôpital de la manufacture auquel l'Hôpital Saint Louis fut réuni en 1772. Elle se composait d'une barrique vide dont on avait scié dans le sens vertical près de la moitié des douves, de façon à conserver intacte la partie inférieure. La barrique était montée sur un pivot central. Un autre pivot la maintenait dans sa partie supérieure et c'est ainsi qu'elle pouvait tourner facilement sur elle-même. Elle était placée juste derrière la façade principale de la maison et communiquait avec l'extérieur par une large baie circulaire pratiquée dans le mur, à hauteur d'appui. A travers cette ouverture on passait l'enfant que l'on déposait dans la barrique. On faisait ensuite pivoter celle-ci, on sonnait et la soeur venait prendre le petit abandonné dans la sinistre machine. On comprend qu'on ait pu y introduire non seulement le nouveau-né, mais plusieurs enfants, de toute taille, même âgés de douze ans ». « On sonnait et la soeur venait prendre le petit abandonné ». Après avoir été baptisé, l'enfant rejoignait la crèche où des nourrices le prenaient en charge. Car, quelle que soit son origine - il peut venir de départements extérieurs et certaines personnes faisaient office d'intermédiaires - une inscription était portée sur les registres de naissance de la ville de Bordeaux. L'histoire de cet enfant s'arrêtait là. En ce qui concerne les survivants, des petits dossiers regroupent des traces de la vie l'enfant, complétant les informations figurant sur le registre: séjours chez des familles, mariage, ou problèmes divers liés à l'enfance ou à l'adolescence de ces enfants ou très jeunes adultes. Les enfants étaient mis en nourrice dans le nord-Gironde, le sud de la Charente-Inférieure, de la Charente et dans l'est de la Dordogne. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Log of the Ship Trumbull, Java Head to Providence, RI, 1816

      Folio. unpaginated. About 80 pagespre-printed in journal form, accomplished in manuscript. "John Aborn Master. Kept by Geo. W. Johnson of Providence." The Trumbull departed Jave head May 29 and reached Providence October 26, 1816. Excellent detail on ship handling, weather, and events on board - which included such things as the discovery of a giant whale carcass, being fed on by birds and sharks, "a most tremendous squall" off the Cape of Good Hope, after which "all persons on board [the ship carried passengers as well as cargo] were obliged to help cut away the mizzen mast." Also contacts with English troop ships on the heels of the late War. Approaching the Cape of Good Hope they ran low on water, and the captain was confined to his quarters by rheumatism, much to the relief of the crew. According to journal keeper Johnson, the ship was being run by "our officers." In all, an eventful voyage of an early 19th century American merchantman. Bound in original marbled wrappers, taped at spine. "Providence (R.I.) Printed for William Wilkinson, and sold at his bookstore, 1815."

        Travels of Ali Bey In Morocco, Tripoli, Cyprus, Egypt, Arabia, Syria & Turkey, Between The Years 1803-1807, Written By Himself. (TWO VOLUMES OF TEXT + ONE VOLUME ATLAS).

      Longmans, London 1816 - Volume I: xlii, 339 pp. steel engraved portrait frontispiece + 1 folding map of the Kingdom of Morocco, + 44 steel engraved plates / Volume II: ix, 373 pp; 36 steel engraved plates of which 2 are folding, Volume III: Atlas, 3 folding maps, 4 folding plates,marbled boards, lightly rubbed & bumped, marbled endpapers, title gilt on raised bands, scattered foxing, some foxed browning to map of morocco, stamps to fly leafs, bookplate of Henry B. H. Beaufoy verso front cover. Set complete. The Atlas contains three large folding maps: North Africa, Asia Minor and Arabia & The Red Sea. Plus three large folding plates: Plate 72 in 2 parts of El-Sahhara and one plate of El -Aksa. Badia y Leblich was a Spanish traveller who assumed the name Ali Bey El Abassi and disguised himself as an Arab. He seems to have been travelling as an agent of the Spanish government. In 1803 he departed for Tangier and travelled through North Africa to Egypt, where he met Chateaubriand in Alexandria. He continued on to Cyprus and had reached Mecca by the beginning of 1807, returning via Jerusalem, Damascus and Constantinople to Spain the same year. He joined the Napoleonic forces in the invasion of Spain, was forced to withdraw with them to France after their expulsion from the Peninsula, and was resident in Paris by 1813, which accounts for the fact that the first edition of this work was printed there. He&#146;s commonly reported to have been a spy of Napoleon. Ali Bey was the first Christian to describe in some detail Mecca, and the mosque Omar in Jerusalem, as well as some little known aspects of Islam. After the publication of this work he planned a second journey under the name Ali Othman and returned to Syria, where he died suddenly at Aleppo, his disguise apparently having been penetrated. The plates in this work are mostly after designs by Ali Bey and include architectural plans, natural history subjects and views. In modern times scholars have demonstrated that he was actually very involved in the complex Spanish political events in the 1808-1810 period of the Peninsular War.

        Broadside. Begins, Juxta. Crucem. Jesu. Stanti Ast. in Cruce. Ipsa ...

      Petri de la Rosa, 1816. On 24 April 1816 Díaz de la Vega stood to defend his Bachelor degree and this letterpress broadside on silk is the official announcement of that. It is handsomely printed using several point sizes of roman and italic, with center justification in the top portion and full justification below. Degree defense broadsides were an important source of income for Colonial-era printers in Latin America and the printers offered "package deals" to the families of the graduate and post-graduate degree postulants; the packages were geared to the students' families economic means. Broadsides could be large (folio) or small (8vo), have an engraving or not, have a border of type ornaments or not, and be printed on standard paper or colored paper (usually blue); if one splurged, one could get the announcement printed, as here, on silk. The usual total number of copies printed for each candidate is unknown at this time, but is likely to have been only one or two dozen, and we also don't know if more than one silk copy was printed when that top option was in fact ordered. In extravagant cases, one can imagine one for the degree candidate, one for the parents, one for each godparent, etc.; still, such cases would probably have been few. Certainly, the printers would have been willing to rake in as much money as possible, on each happy occasion, and the richly beautiful silk mementos -- doubtless proudly displayed for years going forward in homes or offices -- would have been excellent ongoing advertisements. Equally clearly, however, the number of copies of all of the defense broadsides surviving is small, and the survival of those on silk is => very small. No copies of this broadside are traced via the usual bibliographies, nor via NUC, WorldCat, COPAC, KVK, CCILA, CCPB, or the OPACs of CONDUMEX, the Benemérita Universidad Autónoma de Puebla, and the national libraries of Spain and Mexico.

Afm.

We zien dat een enorme menigte zich op het Malieveld heeft verzameld, waaronder veel soldaten.Muzikanten, goochelaars en acrobaten vertonen op een groot podium hun kunsten: een man met een kruiwagen loopt over een touw naar een hoge stellage. In kraampjes en vanaf kruiwagens wordt eten en drinken verkocht. Op de achtergrond rijden de koetsen van het jonggehuwde paar en hun gevolg.De couranten uit de dagen erna berichtten over de ?warme vreugde over de gelukkige aankomst van het Vorstelijk Paar en de ongekunstelde blijdschap, met welke alle harten vervuld waren.??Reeds van den morgen af, was het grootste gedeelte van de bevolking dezer residentie op de been; terwijl aan alle toegangen tot dezer stad de toevloed van zowel rij en vaartuigen , als te voet aankomende bewoners van andere steden en dorpen onbeschrijfelijk groot was. De menigte aanschouwers in en om het Malieveld, waar verschillende verrigtingen van koorddansers en andere verlastingen gratis voor het publiek gegeven werden, was talloos.??De Koninklijke familie reed geruime tijd door het veld en ontving aanhoudende ondubbelzinnige blijken van volksliefde en achting. Des avonds leverden de illuminatien van de stad het schilderschtigste gezicht op; de pracht en smaak, waarmede alle pleinen en straten en vooral de Vijverberg, het Voorhout en Boschkant verlicht en versierd waren, gaan alle beschrijving te boven.?Prijs: ?1.650,- (incl. lijst).

      Philadelphia, 1816. First Edition. Three text volumes plus quarto atlas. Atlas with nineteen maps and plans (three folding, two partially colored). 4 vols. Original boards, paper labels. Labels heavily chipped. Spine worn on first volume and atlas, front board of volume two loosening. Light wear to boards and spines. Lightly foxed. Untrimmed and partially unopened. Very good. In uniform blue half morocco slipcases, spines gilt. A nice set, in original condition. First Edition. Three text volumes plus quarto atlas. Atlas with nineteen maps and plans (three folding, two partially colored). 4 vols. IN ORIGINAL BOARDS. Wilkinson's long and detailed memoir, full of justification of his own actions, but a vital work for the American Revolution, the War of 1812, and the Burr conspiracy.  Wilkinson (1757-1825) was a general in the American Revolution; he subsequently served in Wayne's Ohio campaign against the Indians, and was successively governor at Detroit, St. Louis, and New Orleans.  He was embroiled in Aaron Burr's western schemes, and ultimately became a Texas landowner.  The narrative begins in 1776 with Wilkinson's appointment to the Continental Army and his part in Arnold's attack on Quebec, and concludes with the end of the War of 1812.  The atlas illustrates battles in both conflicts.  A fascinating and well-illustrated biography of one of the most adventurous and controversial figures in American history. Very unusual in Original boards. Streeter Sale 1706; Philips Atlases 1344; Tompkins 108; Sabin 104029; Howes W429, "b."

These designs often reflected the bookÂ’s ecclesiastical content” (Morris &amp; Levin, The Art of PublisherÂ’s Bookbindings, 1815-1915, 25). Title within typographical border. Text in Hebrew.

        THE HOLY BIBLE, CONTAINING THE OLD TESTAMENT AND THE NEW

      London: George Eyre and Andrew Strahan, 1816. This is an especially appealing item, both for its small size and its luxurious binding. One can picture a Victorian lady of means carrying this desirable accessory to church in a beautifully gloved hand--and its condition would indicate that it saw little or no use beyond that. The binding is unsigned, but it is clearly the work of a first-rate firm working with considerable skill in the prevailing style of combined blind and gilt decoration.. 122 x 73 mm. (4 3/4 x 3"). [920] pp. CHARMING CONTEMPORARY TAN STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO ELABORATELY TOOLED IN GILT AND BLIND, covers framed by wide floral gilt roll enclosing a central panel with additional frames in gilt and blind, a complex fleuron centerpiece in gilt and blind, raised bands, spine panels densely tooled in gilt incorporating foliage and floral elements and many small tools, turn-ins forming a wide gilt floral frame enclosing green watered silk endleaves with gilt trim, all edges gilt and intricately gauffered in floral patterns. Herbert 1637. Only the most trivial hint of rubbing, AN EXCEPTIONALLY FINE COPY, the text quite clean, fresh, and bright, and in a virtually unworn and lustrous binding. This is an especially appealing item, both for its small size and its luxurious binding. One can picture a Victorian lady of means carrying this desirable accessory to church in a beautifully gloved hand--and its condition would indicate that it saw little or no use beyond that. The binding is unsigned, but it is clearly the work of a first-rate firm working with considerable skill in the prevailing style of combined blind and gilt decoration.
