        The Butterfly's Ball, and the Grasshopper's Feast. By Mr. Roscoe. To Which Is Added, an Original Poem, Entitled A Winter's Day. By Mr. Smith, of Stand

      London: Harris, John, 1816. 32mo. 16pp. Seven hand-colored full-page plates. A lyrical tale for children accompanied by a short poem by an unknown author. Throughout the late 18th and early 19th centuries, John Harris was the pre-eminent English publisher of materials for children. Harris, unlike other children's publishers of the time, produced items that were meant not just to instruct, but also to amuse their readers. The present item exemplifies Harris' "cabinet of amusement and instruction" - as stated on its upper cover - through rich illustrations and desciptions of each insect. The 1816 edition is an enhancement of the 1808 edition, adding color to the plates and slightly adjusting the typography. Butterfly's Ball has inspired several other works, including a 1973 picture book by Alan Aldridge and William Plomer, an animated short, a rock opera, and an orchestral composition, and a miniature book by Anne and David Bromer. Housed in a black chemise with a black cloth slipcase with label at spine, fine. Book itself in paper wrappers with general wear to extremities and evidence of repair to spine. A fine copy of an edition rarely found.

        Ueber das Sehn und die Farben, eine Abhandlung.

      Leipzig Hartknoch 1816 - Gr.-8°. 88 S. (unbeschnitten). Neueres HLdr. (minimal aufgebogen). Grisebach, Edita u. Inedita Schopenhaueriana, S. 11. Schmid, Goethe u.d. Naturwissenschaften, 2380. - Erste Ausgabe von Schopenhauers zweiter Arbeit. Sie stammt aus seiner Dresdner Privatgelehrtenzeit und geht auf den privaten Umgang mit Goethe in den Jahren 1813 u. 1814 zurück, dessen Farbenlehre Hauptthema der Gespräche war. Einig sind sich Goethe und Schopenhauer in der Ablehnung der Newtonschen Theorie, nach der die Farben Modifikationen des reinen weißen Lichts sind, die aus der Teilung und Brechung des Lichtstrahls entstehen. Schopenhauer hat die Farben als Gesichtsempfindungen dargestellt, die aus der Beschaffenheit des menschlichen Auges erklärbar sind, nämlich als Aktion des Auges. Ihn interessiert die Art und Weise, wie das Auge auf das nicht weiter bestimmbare Phänomen des Lichtes reagiert und nicht das gedankliche Konstrukt subjektübergreifender Urphänomene, als welches Goethe Licht und Finsternis fasst. - Goethe war, wie sich Schopenhauer später erinnert, "so ganz Realist, daß es ihn durchaus nicht zu Sinne wollte, daß die Objekte als solche nur da seien, insofern sie von dem erkennenden Subjekt vorgestellt werden. Was, sagte er mir einst, mit seinen Jupitersaugen mich anblickend, das Licht sollte nur da seyn, insofern Sie es sehen? Nein, Sie wären nicht da, wenn das Licht Sie nicht sehe." - Titel unten mit altem Besitzvermerk, verso Bibliotheksstempel der Naturforschenden Gesellschaft in Danzig.

One of the earliest books to include colour plates of tied flies. This is considered the precursor to Ronalds' Flyfisher's Entomology, 1836, and is only the second work, (after George Scotcher's Fly-fisher's Legacy, Chepstow, 1800) on angling to be illustrated with hand-coloured engravings of trout & salmon flies. According to Westwood & Satchell "Twelve copies of the first edition were in 4to., coloured with greater care, and published at two guineas." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Christabel: Kubla Khan, A Vision; The Pains of Sleep

      London: John Murray, 1816. First edition. Bound in full polished calf by Sangorski and Sutcliffe: gilt ruled on the boards, spine renewed, marbled end papers, gilt top edge. Bound with the half-title, but without the ads. A lovely copy of one of Coleridge's best works. Mythical in both its content and creation, Kubla Khan emerged from one of Coleridge's laudanum induced dreams. By his own account, Coleridge dreamt of the Mongol emperor not in his historical context as a tyrant, but as a figure of contradiction and artistic complexity. "Coleridge's Khan is a kind of artist, summoning into being with a God-like command not only the beauty of the pleasure-dome but the ordered loveliness of its cultivated gardens, full of sweet smells and tinkling streams, all sheltered from the outside world by robust 'walls and towers'" (Perry). The final product is a poem hailed as one of Coleridge's greatest, and a landmark of Romanticism.

      London: for W. Allason; B Whitrow and Co.; C. Chapple [& 19 others in London]; also W. and P. Jenkins, and E. Khull and Co., Glasgow; J. Cumming and C. La Grange, Dublin,, 1816. In twelve volumes. A New Edition. 12 volumes, octavo. Original drab paper boards, original printed spine labels, edges uncut. Engraved portrait frontispiece, 2 large folding maps. Armorial bookplates of John Henniker, St John's College, Cambridge. Spines rubbed, some labels rather worn, slight marking to covers, first front joint slightly split but still firm. An excellent set in unrestored contemporary state. First Allason edition. On 1 July 1791, Cadell asked Gibbon to assign the renewed copyright in the first volume to him and Strahan as had been agreed by them in 1780. This extended the copyright of that volume, so that the entire History ceased to be copyright only when that agreement expired in 1804. The expiry of the copyright allowed a number of reprints to appear on the market. This particular 12-volume octavo edition published by W. Allason and a consortium of other London publishers was reprinted no less than seven times between 1816 and 1823.

      Nürnberg: Friedrich Campe . 1816 - Small 8°, X, [1] title, 332 pp. with interleaved 4 originally coloured copper engravings, modern green paper binding with old title pasted on the spine (Very Good, slightly stained and water stained, professionally restored, a tiny hole (paper mistake) in pp. 205-206). An extremely rare illustrated volume of Robinson&#146;s travels through America, from Mississippi, to Canada, Greenland, the Caribbean to South America, was published in German language in 1816. - This very rare edition of Robinson&#146;s travels to America in German language was published in Nuremberg in 1816 by the Friedrich Campe. It is the second volume of four and describes Robinson&#146;s travels from Mississippi, Philadelphia, Canada, through the Prince of Wales Fort to Greenland, Bermuda, the Caribbean, Guyana, Brazil, to Buenos Aires. The travel describe customs, local stories, flora and fauna. The book is accompanied by highly decorative originally coloured illustrations. The complete series of the four book is practically unobtainable. The whole series counted 4 books, published between 1914 and 1922: America in 1914 (1st part) and 1916 (2nd part), followed by Australia and South Asia, and South Asia and Africa in 1922. We could only trace scarce separate examples of different volumes (circa 8) in institutions worldwide. The four volumes together only seem to appear in electronic form (OCLC 609282841). Robinsonade - The story of Robinson Crusoe was based on a real life experience by a sailor Alexander Selkirk, who was marooned on Juan Fernández Island (today Robinson Crusoe Island ) for over four years, between 1704-1709. Upon his return a book based on his life was published with a title Fame of having lived four Years and four Months alone on the Island of Juan Fernandez, which inspired Daniel Defoe (circa 1660-1731) to write The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, Of York, Mariner: Who lived Eight and Twenty Years, all alone in an un-inhabited Island on the Coast of America, near the Mouth of the Great River of Oroonoque; Having been cast on Shore by Shipwreck, wherein all the Men perished but himself. With An Account how he was at last as strangely deliver'd by Pyrates. This first edition of Robinson Crusoe was supposed to be only an unimportant entertaining book. It was Defoe&#146;s 412th publication and he wrote it, because he needed money for his daughter&#146;s wedding. It was published anonymously on April 25, 1719, and war republished in on May 9, June 4, August 7 etc without definitive manuscript. The book was a major success and soon many different variations of text with various names and stories appeared in different languages. The stories varied from entertaining and educational to moralising. The word Robinsonade was first invented by German writer Johann Gottfried Schnabel in the Preface of his 1731 work Die Insel Felsenburg (The Island Stronghold). We would not trace any other examples from the series in the auction records for the past two generations. The book is also not mentioned in the bibliography on the Robisonades by Ullrich in 1898.

Volume VIII trimmed. 66 parts of 72 with 65 (of 66) folding hand-colored engraved plates, lacking the plate for the July 1, 1811 issue ("New Roads to the Temple of Fortune"), and the ads. COHN 732. "Of the seventy-two folding coloured plates, forty-two are by George Cruikshank." Published monthly it contains some of Cruikshank's finest large format early caricatures, often scandalous, at times scatological and always entertaining.

      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.
