        A Letter to a Friend of Robert Burns: Occasioned by an Intended Republication of the Account of the Life of Burns, by Dr. Currie; and of the Selection Made by Him from His Letters.

      London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, 1816. FIRST EDITION. Octavo, pp.[4]; 37; [7]. Including publisher's adverts, dated March 1816. Re-bound c.1920 in black cloth with gilt titles to upper board. All edges untrimmed. Endpapers spotted, otherwise a clean copy; very good indeed. Wordsworth writes to James Gray (1770-1830), who was Latin Master at Dumfries Academy in 1788 when Burns moved to the area with Jean Armour and their children. The two men became friends, and in later life Gray made one of the first concerted efforts to redeem the personal reputation of Burns, who was tainted with the reputation of a philanderer and drunken debauchee by the biography published by Dr. James Currie in 1800. Gray seems to have forwarded Wordsworth a copy of the article he wrote for Alexander Peterkin's new edition of Currie's 'Life' on account of the preparations being made by Burns' brother Gilbert for his own re-issue, asking Wordsworth for help in framing his revisionist arguments. A rare and illuminating document not seen at auction since 1962.

        A BRIEF ACCOUNT OF THE LIFE OF PETER LUNG, WHO IS SENTENCED TO BE EXECUTED IN JUNE NEXT, AND IS NOW CONFINED IN A GLOOMY DUNGEON, LOADED WITH CHAINS, AWAITING THE AWFUL EXECUTION OF THE LAW

      Hartford: William S. Marsh, 1816. 22pp. Early crude stitching. Rear cover detached, small tears at fore edge, sheets untrimmed. Contemporary manuscript notations. A good copy. Written as a series of letters to his mother and children, together with his dying address. Lung was tried and executed for the murder of his wife. The tone of the letters is reproachful, with the author citing several false and injurious statements made by his mother. Alcohol is to blame for most of the trouble with his wife: "We were now both of us, very angry, and conducted most imprudently and wickedly. We should not have done so had we not both been in a state of intoxication. And whenever we abused each other, as we often did, in a brutal and shocking manner, it was in consequence of drinking too much spirits; but when we got over it, we were always sorry for it." Scarce, with only five copies located in OCLC - New York Historical Society, Connecticut State Library, American Antiquarian Society, University of Michigan, and Colby College in Maine. McDADE 637. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 38112.

        Des vésanies, ou maladies mentales

      VIII-308 pages, un tableau Paris, chez l'auteur, 1816, in-8, VIII-308 pages, un tableau dépliant, demi-basane fauve de l'époque, dos lisse et orné, ex-libris J. J. frappé en pied, tranches jonquille, Édition originale de cet ouvrage, le dernier sur lequel Dubuisson travailla, avant de perdre ses facultés mentales. L'auteur divise les maladies mentales en 5 catégories - hypocondrie, vésanies partielles, manie, démence et idiotisme - et reconnait les causes héréditaires, physiques et morales de la folie. L'ouvrage contient un tableau statistique dépliant, "servant à établir les proportions de guérison des aliénés" dans les hôpitaux de Charenton, Bicêtre, la Salpêtrière, dans les établissements d'Esquirol et dans celui de Dubuisson lui-même ; en Angleterre à Bethlem, Saint-luc et dans les établissements de la Société des Quakers près d'York ; à Berlin en Prusse ; et à Vienne en Autriche. Jacquelin Dubuisson (1770-1836) fit ses études à Paris et dirigea une maison de santé au petit Charonne, dans laquelle étaient accueillis à la fois les aliénés et les détenus politique. En 1812, il publia une Dissertation sur la manie. Claude-François de Malet était placé dans son établissement lorsqu'il ourdit son coup d'état contre Napoléon ; cet évènement semble avoir eu raison de la santé mentale de Dubuisson. Exemplaire provenant de la bibliothèque de Frantz Adam (1886-1968) à Charenton, avec son ex-libris manuscrit et la date de 1913 : interne puis psychiatre réputé à Charenton et à hôpital psychiatrique de Rouffach en Alsace, Frantz Adam fut aide-major puis médecin-major au 23e régiment d'infanterie pendant la Grande Guerre ; il est reconnu pour ses photographies prises sur le front et pour ses souvenirs, publiés en 1931 sous le titre « Sentinelles... prenez garde à vous... ». Bon exemplaire, malgré des rousseurs. Coins émoussés. Semelaigne I, p. 112.

        Alastor; or, the Spirit of Solitude: and Other Poems.

      London: for Baldwin, Cradock and Joy, and Carpenter and Son, by S. Hamilton, Weybridge,, 1816. Small octavo (166 × 104 mm). Finely bound in the 1880s by Ramage in burgundy full morocco, spine gilt in compartments with titles direct, sides panelled with octuple gilt rule, florally patterned endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Housed in a matching leather-entry burgundy cloth slipcase. With the scarce final blank. Spine a little sunned, some trivial rubbing to extremities, internally sound, clean and fresh. An excellent copy. First edition, very scarce, of Shelley's first mature work, which drew from Leigh Hunt, then a stranger to him, the first public recognition of Shelley's gifts as "a very striking and original thinker". Partly inspired by a boat trip up the Thames taken by Shelley, Mary, Peacock and Charles Clairmont, and partly by Shelley's complex reaction to Wordsworth, the poem, "in its brooding introspection, is a world away from the explicit radicalism of Queen Mab. Alastor is at some level an elegy for Shelley's failed marriage with Harriet" (ODNB). The volume also contains much revised versions of the first two cantos of Queen Mab, under the title 'The Daemon of the World', along with another revised section (entitled 'Superstition') from canto 6. The book was apparently rare as early as 1824: Mary Shelley, in her preface to Posthumous Poems, explained, "I have added a reprint of 'Alastor, or the Spirit of Solitude': the difficulty with which a copy can be obtained is the cause of its republication." This copy has an interesting association gift inscription, contemporary with the fine Ramage binding, to the front free endpaper verso, "C. Kegan Paul from The Rev W. K. R. Bedford, 1889". Charles Kegan Paul (1828-1902) was, like Shelley, educated at Eton and Oxford. After a period as a curate, and then as a master at Eton, he entered the publishing business. He was the author of several literary publications, including his biography of William Godwin, His Friend and Contemporaries (1876), which he undertook at the request of Shelley's son Sir Percy Florence, who placed at Paul's disposal a mass of unpublished documents. He published a supplementary work on Mary Wollstonecraft, Letters to Imlay, with Prefatory Memoir (1879). These publications, and his public crises of faith (from Church of England, to atheistical Positivism, to Catholicism), make him a not inappropriate recipient for this early and important Shelley first edition. The gift, with its handsome Ramage binding, was made by English clergyman the Rev. William Kirkpatrick Riland Bedford (1826?1905), a noted author and cricketer (he founded the Free Forsters Club in 1856). Into the 20th century, this copy is from the noted collection of Mrs J. Insley Blair, and has her Blairhame morocco book label to the front pastedown.

Byron's signature was subject to variation, depending in part upon the speed with which he wrote, but close comparison with a number of facsimile examples leaves no doubt in our mind that his salient characteristics are present and that there is no indication of forgery".

Prima edizione di entrambi i testi, che costituiscono il documento fondativo del corpo dei Carabinieri pontifici, istituito da Papa Pio VII con notificazione del luglio 1816. L'esemplare Š di particolare interesse perch‚ Š la copia "d'uso" di un carabieniere del tempo con una rara legatura portatile "a registro" perfettamente conservata. Dopo il periodo napoleonico e il congresso di Vienna, il Papa torn• a Roma e riorganizz• le guardie: il volume contiene il Regolamento del corpo e il testo di Galassi con le indicazioni generali di comportamento. I carabinieri, che andavano a sostituire gli "sbirri", si distinguevano dalle Guardie svizzere poich‚ operavano per la sicurezza su tutti i possedimenti pontifici e garantivano un controllo generalizzato sul territorio. Rossetti 10426 considera i due testi sotto uno stesso record.

        A System of Mineralogy

      Edinburgh: Printed by Neill & Company for Archibald Constable and Company; and Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme & Brown, London, 1816 - Second edition. Three volumes. Contemporary tan half calf over marbled boards, spines with blind rules and gilt lettered green labels, the bookplate of Arthur Hill of Bruce Castle to the front pastedowns. 13 folding plates. Some foxing the plates, the outer edge of one of which has been shaved with a very small loss of the printing, some patchiness to the spines, a very good set. Bruce Castle was a school founded in 1827 in Tottenham by Rowland Hill, the great postal reformer, and his brother Arthur. When Rowland Hill stood down as headteacher in the early 1830s to pursue other interests Arthur took on the job, a position that he held until his retirement in 1866. During their tenures the school became well renowned for its progressive teaching methods, the broad curriculum in which they schooled their pupils and the strong emphasis that they placed on the sciences. It was highly successful and attracted pupils from wealthy families, including the children of Charles Babbage.

        Plan de la ville et faubourgs de Paris, avec ses monuments, divisé par quartiers et arrondissements.

      Paris, Jean, 1816. En 32 sections montées sur toile et pliées, formant une carte de 0,97 x 1,25 m.

Il montre les premiers travaux d'embellissement et d'aménagement de voirie qui avaient été ordonnés par Napoléon, parmi lesquels figurent le canal de l'Ourcq, terminé en 1802, le canal de Saint-Denis, commencé en 1811, le bassin de la Villette, destiné à alimenter la capitale, achevé entre 1806 et 1809, les Abattoirs, les cimetières du Nord, de l'Est, de Vaugirard, de Sainte-Catherine (décret du 12 juin 1804), la nouvelle Morgue place du Marché-Neuf (ordonnance de police de 1804), le pont des Arts, construit entre 1802 et 1804, le pont d'Austerlitz, entre 1799 et 1807, les greniers de réserve, le quai d'Orsay, le marché aux fleurs, ou encore la partie occidentale de la rue de Rivoli.

Autour du plan ont été disposées 29 vues des principaux monuments parisiens, dont le "palais projeté" de la villa Trocadéro. Les 12 arrondissements de la ville sont délimités par un trait d'aquarelle. Le plan est accompagné d'une liste des rues, passages, ponts, places, abattoirs, cimetières, et des arrondissements.

        Histoire du Roi Henri-le-Grand.

      Paris, Renouard, 1816. - X S., 1 Bl., 468 S. Mit gestochenem Frontispiz (Porträt des Henri IV). Gr.8° (23,6 x 15 cm). Dunkelroter Maroquiband mit reicher Blind- und Goldprägung, Steh- und Innenkantenvergoldung, dreiseitigem Goldschnitt und ockerfarbenen Moiré-Vorsätzen in Goldbordüre, in moderner Leinen-Kassette mit Rückenschild, ausgeschlagen mit rotem Filz. Kassette min. berieben; teils stockfleckig. Breitrandiges Exemplar des biographischen Standardwerkes (zuerst Paris 1661) über den französischen Staatengründer, Nationalhelden (-heiligen) Henri IV auf großem Papier: "édition bien imprimée et fort correcte" (Brunet IV, 491). Provenienz: Zwei der größten US-amerikanischen Bibliophilen waren die Vorbesitzer. 1) Aus dem Bibliothek von Robert Hoe III, mit dessen goldgeprägtem Exlibris verso fliegendem Vorsatz. R. Hoe (1839-1909) war äußerst erfolgreicher Fabrikant von Druckmaschinen (das Exlibris zeigt eine) und einer der größten Bibliophilen seiner Zeit; als solcher war er Mitbegründer und 1. Präsident des Grolier Club, New York; seine Bibliothek war ebenso legendär (14837 Nummern) wie ihr Katalog (zur Versteigerung von 1911; 4 Teile in 8 Bänden). 2) Vermutlich auf dieser Versteigerung erwarb Cortlandt Field Bishop das Exemplar; sein goldgeprägtes Leder-Exlibris befindet sich unterhalb desjenigen von Hoe. Bishop (1870-1935), ein reicher Amerikaner, war begeisterter Flugpionier und Büchersammler; seine Sammlung mit kostbar gebundenen Exemplaren, darunter vielen französischen, gelangte 1938 zur Versteigerung. (Auf dem zweiten fliegenden Vorsatz befindet sich in Bleistift der alte handschriftliche Eintrag "Robert Hoe", möglicherweise von dessen eigener Hand). Der Meistereinband vorliegenden Exemplars stammt von Joseph Thouvenin (winziger goldgeprägter Signaturstempel am Fuß des Rückens), unklar dabei ob vom Älteren (Wirkungszeit 1813-34) oder Jüngeren (1822-44); die Werkstatt Thouvenin zählte ihrerzeit neben denen des René Simier und des Jean-Georges Burgold zu Frankreichs bedeutendsten und wurde zuletzt 2006 im Musée Condé de Chantilly umfänglich präsentiert; durch Thouvenins Rückgriff auf den "Kathedralenstil" und den "Fächerstil" füherer Jahrhunderte wird er allgemein als der Begründer des "style historiciste" angesehen, wobei hier ein hervorragendes und typisches Beispiel seiner Arbeit (in vorzüglicher Erhaltung) vorliegt.
