        A treatise on the art of flying, by mechanical means;

      12mo., xviii (19) - 68pp., including two whole-page illustrations, the paper generally rather discoloured (i.e. browned) and with a light old waterstain running throughout, original printed card covers with woodcut emblematic vignettes on both covers, an old dampstain affecting lower part of upper cover. In spite of the minor faults just described, this is in fact a complete and pretty good copy of this remarkable little book. All these early editions have become rather rare: of this 1816 printing OCLC locates copies at only 5 libraries: Congress Un. of Delaware Purdue NY Hist. Soc. the American Univ. For historical commentary see Hodgson's History of Aeronautics in Great Britain, pp.349-354. Thomas Walker (who describes himself as a portrait painter of Hull) seems to be otherwise virtually unknown, the present essay being thus his only real memorial. "Walker's ideas on the practicability of flight as a means of aerial transportation were based (as stated on the title-page of his treatise) upon 'the natural principles by which birds are enabled to fly.' It is evident the flight of birds was a subject on which for many years he diligently read and observed - in his early life he dissected many birds and 'studied very minutely' the mechanism of their wings, tails and all the parts which they employ in flying. On the evidence of his reading which the author himself states would have enabled him to compile a large volume from all that had been said on the subject throughout the ages he avers 'that no one has ever understood the natural means of flying'' and he dismisses as 'childish whims' all attempts hitherto made with wings, whether of silk, leather, sheet iron, or other materials. Throughout the book he insists on the fact that granted the possession of the 'two greatest requisites ' for flying, viz, 'wings large enough' and 'sufficient power to work them' the weight of a bird - or of a man - is no obstacle to the art of flying. In respect of his own scheme for 'artificial flying' which, conceived on an analogous plan, was designed to overcome the difficulty of the insufficient strength of man's arms, and (as hitherto attempted) the unsupported weight of his body - he claimed, with that complete assurance which is rarely convincing, 'there cannot remain a doubt of success.' Walker admits that 'professional avocations and other circumstances' - which it is safe to assume includes lack of money - prevented him from making any such machine as he described on paper, and indeed the only experiment he himself records was confined to diminutive paper models. It should, however, be added that a contemporary -who as a resident of Barton-on-Humber doubtless wrote with some personal knowledge - stated that Walker made a machine, but 'was unable to raise himself from the platform on which the car was placed." (See Hodgson's History, pp.351-3). The two whole-page illustrations rather nicely show the inside of the flying machine with a seated pilot and a view of the flying machine from above, its component structures all identified. Walker is scornfully not "surprised" at the failure of the attempts of earlier would-be fliers. "When we take into consideration the different methods which are recorded to have been tried, we cannot be surprised that they have all failed, since, compared with what is contained in the following pages, they will obviously appear to be nothing more than mere whims and contrivances, all utterly destitute of the true nature and science of flying".

Engravings by Samuel Davis, an official in the East India Company and a colleague of Thomas and William Daniells, were prominent aquatinters of their time. A Rare and complete copy. Abbey Travel 312. Alexander Beatson was an agriculturalist and officer in the East India Company's service, and he served as governor of St. Helena, He wrote this book in an effort to alter contemporary views of the island's fertility and potentials. At the time experts believed that St Helena was barren and with no productive potential. After spending a several years on St. Helena, Beatson became convinced that its lack of production was due to flaws in technique rather than natural endowment. In making his case, Beatson describes the history of St Helena's geological formation, its soil and climate conditions, minerals and potential for vegetable production, as well as the qualities of the island that lend it to military purposes. Beatson's appointment as governor of St Helena was from 1808 to 1813. During this period, Beatson introduced a better system of cultivation and made many improvements to the island of St Helena.

        Adolphe, 1816, Edition Originale

      Treuttel, Wurtz et Colburn 1816 Après l'épopée des Cent - Jours et le triomphe des ultras, Benjamin Constant est contraint à l'exil. Il se rend à Londres et décide de publier en même temps à Londres et à Paris cet ouvrage écrit à Genève en 1806, au milieu des orages de la passion tumultueuse de l'auteur pour Germaine de Staël. On le considère cette oeuvrecomme le type même du roman d'analyse psychologique. L'auteur a publié cet ouvrage comme une « anecdote trouvée dans les papiers d'un inconnu », pour montrer à quelles sombres tragédies peut conduire la sécheresse de c?"ur. Sous cette forme, qui lui permet de paraître détaché de ses propres passions d'homme de son temps, ce partisan tenace des libertés constitutionnelles a pu confesser une désillusion amoureuse et défendre ses idées politiques avec une ferveur accrue . Trois éditions parurent à la même date : une appelée communément « édition de Londres », et deux éditions de Paris portant deux adresses différentes. « Toutes trois sont rares et très recherchées » écrit Clouzot. La première édition est celle de Colburn, en association avec Treuttel et Würtz à Paris, annoncée le 6 juin dans le ?Morning Chronicle'. Elle est rarissime (trois exemplaires connus dans les bibliothèques publiques : la British Library, Harvard et la Taylorian Institution à Oxford). La B.n.F. ne la possède pas, mais elle a la première édition parisienne . Cette édition que je vends a été imprimée par Crapelet d'après les épreuves de l'édition anglaise. L'éditeur français est placé avant son confrère londonien à l'adresse et la mention d'imprimeur est, bien entendu, différente. (Clouzot, 70 - 71 ; Carteret, I, 178 - 179 ; Talvart, III, 213 a; Rahir, Bibliothèque de l'amateur, 377 ; Vicaire, II, 932). Reliure demi cuir d' époque dans un état assez bon avec un dos lisse orné d' une pièce de titre gravée à l' or fin et des plats marbrés, intérieur en assez bon état, format in 12, 228 pages.

        Plan, coupe, élévation et détails du nouveau marché St-Germain.

      chez l'Auteur et Dussilon, de l'Imprimerie de Firmin Didot, A Paris 1816 - In-folio de (5)-10 pp., 11 planches, cartonnage bleu de l'époque. Deux vignettes dessinées par Lusson et 11 planches d'architecture gravées par Lusson ou Devilliers. La foire Saint-Germain, dont les origines remontent au Moyen Age et qui fut le théâtre de nombreux troubles sous l'Ancien Régime, après avoir décliné durant la Révolution, fut supprimée en 1806. Une partie de son terrain fut affecté au marché Saint-Germain actuel qui fut reconstruit de 1813 à 1819. Le marché Saint-Germain apparut aux contemporains comme « le plus beau de Paris » (Marlet, Nouveau tableau de Paris). « L'amplitude du plan, le fini, le luxe même apportés aux détails tels que la fontaine centrale et les grilles, expliquent sans doute que les travaux se soient prolongés au moins jusqu'à la fin de 1819, alors que certaines parties étaient déjà mises en service » (Bertier de Sauvigny, Nouvelle histoire de Paris, La Restauration, pp. 111-112).

        LA MORT D'ARTHUR The Most Ancient and Famous History of the Renowned Prince Arthur, and the Knights of the Round Table

      London: R. Wilks, 1816. Hardcover. Very Good/No jacket as issued. Bound in full, 19th century leather with gilt spine decorations, gilt decorations to the boards, leather spine labels and marbled endpapers. Each volume contains an engraved frontispiece and vignette title page. In addition, vol.1 contains the folding plate of the Round Table. The work is illustrated as follows: vol.1) engraved frontispiece of the death of Sir Lancelot; vignette title page of the Lady of the Lake offering Arthur the sword; and the fold-out plate depicting Arthur and his knights at the Round Table; vol.2) engraved frontispiece of Sir Tristram & Isolde; vignette title page of the battle of Sir Tristram and Sir Lancelot; and vol.3) engraved frontispiece of Arthur drawing the sword from the stone; and vignette title page of Sir Percival fighting the 'serpent.' The printed title pages, in each volume, are those of the 1634 edition. This is a very good, handsome set. This is an important edition of Sir Thomas Malory's compilation of French and English Arthurian romances. It marks the start of modern interest in Arthuriana. First published in 1485 by William Caxton, Le Morte d'Arthur is the birthplace and source for most subsequent Arthurian literature including T.H. White's The Once and Future King, Tennyson's Idylls of the King, and Steinbeck's The Acts of King Arthur and His Noble Knights. The 1485 Caxton edition was followed by editions in 1498, 1529, 1557 and 1634. No further editions were printed until two competing editions were issued in 1816, of which this is one. 1816 stated. 24mo; 5 in. tall. In three volumes (326, 381 & 377 pp.). Some professional work was done to the spines (vol.1 with head and foot chips filled in); some light scuffing to the boards; some wear at the corners; some light foxing to the plates. The set is housed in a clamshell box, constructed by NYS binder Jack Fitterer. The box is done in leather & cloth with gilt lines and a striking image of Excalibur (given by the Lady of the Lake to Arthur) held by a hand rising from the water. Also imprinted are the title 'Prince Arthur' and the date '1816'. This is a scarce and important set protected by a lovely clamshell box!" Lupack, scholar.

Whatman 1818 & 1820"Contemporary full green roan, covers decoratively bordered in gilt, spine elaborately tooled and lettered in gilt, gilt board edges, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt.Wenceslaus Hollar (1607-1677) originally published his Dance of Death illustrations in 1651 under the title "Mortalium Nobilitas" The Dance of Death, also known as La Danse Macabre, is an artistic genre of late-medieval allegory on the universality of death.No matter one's station in life, the Dance of Death unites all. La Danse Macabre consists of the dead or personified Death summoning representatives from all walks of life to dance along to the grave, typically with a Pope, an Emperor, a King, a child, and a laborer. They were produced to remind people of the fragility of their lives and how vain were the glories of earthly life. Its origins are postulated from illustrated sermon texts; the earliest recorded visual scheme was a now-lost mural in the Saints Innocents Cemetery in Paris dating from 1424 to 1425.

        Lettres sur le Caucase et la Géorgie suivies d’une relation d’un Voyage en Perse en 1812. Relation d’un Voyage a Tauris en 1812.

      Hamburg: Chez Perthes & Besser ("Se vend à St. Petersbourg chez Pluchart, à Londres chez T. Boosey, à Paris chez Treuttel & Wurtz.") 1816 - Octavo (20.5 x 13 cm). Later quarter imitation leather binding; [3], 4-230, [3], 234-353, [2] pp. [1] map and 4 engraved vignettes in the text (signed S. D. Bendixen and F. A. de la Belle); errata page. Inventory stamp of the Gatchina Palace Library (Gatchinskii dvorets); half title signed "Casimir". This copy lacks the folding map of the Caucasus. Edges of boards lightly rubbed, light stains to front endpapers, p. 163 with neat tape repair, a few light stains/foxing throughout, old description affixed to front free end paper; two pages with tiny hole, one marginal annotation in pencil. This account of Frederika Afanas'eva von Freygang’s (nee Kudriavskaia) journey to the Caucasus in the years 1811-1812 is one of the earliest such accounts by a Russian woman writer. The correspondence sent by Frederika to her husband (then head of a military command to the Transcaucasus region during the latter stages of the Russo-Persian War of 1804-1813) chronicles her arduous journey through the Russian steppe and the main range of the Caucasus Mountains with her three children. The descriptive passages of the people, customs, and geography encountered along the way are rendered in the flowing French idiom of the Russian aristocracy and represent a valuable record of the early era of Russian colonial expansion in the region. Freygang’s impressions and descriptions were of undoubted importance to the military administration of the time and to the aristocratic readership, as the provenance of this copy illustrates (it stems from the Imperial collection of the Gatchina Palace Library). An important work from an early nineteenth-century female author. The second part of the book, by Frederika Freygang’s husband Wilhelm, is a historico-political account of the Transcaucasus region compiled from notes taken in the field. Freygang’s military sorties took him to the territories of the present day nations of Georgia, Armenia, Iran, and Azerbaijan, and his account of these lands, then mostly under the administration of the Persian Empire, is an early exemplar of the colonial and orientalist works that would come into vogue with the reading public in the following decades. Together an early and important work with broad anthropological and historical interest. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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

      vi, [2], 101 pp., one blank leaf. 8vo, orig. grey boards (spine with a small defect), orig. printed paper label on spine, edition binder's embossed stamp on inside front cover "J:Syrett," uncut. London: Printed for Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy, et al., 1816. First edition, and a splendid copy in original boards, of Shelley's first major achievement; this copy bears on the free front endpaper the ownership signature -- "Tighe" -- of what is almost certainly George William Tighe (1776-1837), the common-law husband of Margaret King, Lady Mount Cashell. The Shelleys moved to Pisa at the suggestion of Lady Mount Cashell (at that time living with Tighe as "Mrs. Mason"), a former pupil of Mary Wollstonecraft. Tighe and "Mrs. Mason" had settled in Pisa where she studied medicine with Andrea Vaccá Berlinghieri at the city's university. Tighe was an agriculturalist and provided Shelley with information on chemistry, biology, and statistics. In 1821, Tighe became involved in the attempts of Claire Clairmont, Mary Shelley's step-sister, to remove her daughter by Byron from a convent in Ravenna. Tighe made a secret trip to Ravenna and Bagnacavallo to find out what he could about the convent and Allegra's treatment there. Claire Clairmont wrote in her journal on 21 April 1821 that she had dreamt that G.W. Tighe had fetched Allegra back from Bagnacavallo; years later -- sometime between 1869 and her death in 1879 -- she told E.J. Trelawny that Tighe had gone to fetch Allegra but as McAleer says, "Tatty's visit may have grown entirely out of the dream Claire had on April 21 -- his passport records no such trip."-Mc Aleer, Sensitive Plant, p. 162. Certainly Claire Clairmont later thought of G.W. Tighe as a protector and brave and courteous gentleman. This copy comes from the family library descending from Lady Mount Cashell, which has close Shelley connections. On page 97, line 2, the first word "And" has been crossed out in ink. There is a modern slip of paper laid-in there with a note "Shelley." We believe the person who inserted the note was someone in the position to know. Fine condition. Preserved in a box. .

        The Statutes at Large, Passed in the Several General Assemblies held in His Majesty's Province of Nova-Scotia : from the sixth session of the eighth General Assembly, which met at Halifax, the twenty-eighth day of November.[ Vol II Supreme Court Horton]

      John Howe and Son, Halifax 1816 - xxv, 220 pages [complete]. Full leather, with title in gilt to spine and THE PROTHONOTARY in gilt to front. Contemporary binding is sound and hinges secure. Two blank endpapers at front and at rear. A pleasing example of this second volume of Statutes, especially with this association: Supreme Court, Horton in pen to front cover, and again to front endpaper above: The Office of Prothonotary Clerk of the Crown. "In 1774 an act of the Legislature was passed, first establishing the circuits of the Supreme Court. This act authorised the holding of courts at Horton, Annapolis, and Cumberland, the sittings to last at each place not more than five days, and two judges always to be present." [Eaton: History of Kings County, 160]. Samuel Denison was Prothonotary in 1814, and Samuel Leonard Allison from 1821-1834 [Eaton, 169]. By 1816 the circuit covered the entire mainland and the Supreme Court consisted of five members: Sampson Salter Blowers, Brenton Halliburton, Solicitor General James Stewart, Lewis M. Wilkins Sr. and, exclusively as associate circuit judge, Peleg Wiswall [see chapter 4 by Cahill and Phillips in The Supreme Court of Nova Scotia, 1754-2004]. Offsetting to pastedowns and facing endpaper; else remarkably fresh with only moderate staining; no marginalia. Full title: The Statutes at large, passed in the several general assemblies held in His Majesty's province of Nova-Scotia : from the sixth session of the eighth General Assembly, which met at Halifax, the twenty-eighth day of November, in the forty-sixth year of His Majesty's reign, A.D. 1805, being the fifty-fifth session of the General Assembly, to the fifty-sixth year of His Majesty's Reign, inclusive; With an Index. Published by order of the Governor, Council and House of Assembly. Vol II. [The implied Vol. I is Richard Uniacke's Statutes at Large. printed by Howe & Son 1805] Size: 4to. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Ticini (Pavia), ex Tipographia Joannis Jacobi Capelli, 1816-1821. 2 vols. 4to (245 x 200mm). pp. (4), 8, 9, (1, blank), cxxxix, (1, blank), 409, (5), 1 folded engraved map, with engraved plates 1-10; pp. (2), xvi, 393, (1, blank), 36, with engraved hand-coloured plates 11-28. Contemporary half calf, spines with gilt lines and red gilt lettered labels. Very scarce work on the flora of Northern Italy, particularly of the plants growing in the area of Pavia. According to Stafleu & Cowan only the second volume has the plates coloured, which is also the case in the present copy. Domenico Nocca (1758-1841) was an Italian clergyman and botanist, professor of botany and director of the botanical gareden at Pavia. Co-author Giovanni Batista (1765-1831) was an Italian physician and botanist at Torino, pupil of Allioni. The colouring of the plates is excellent.//Stafleu & Cowan 6842.

        THE HISTORY OF GEORGIA, CONTAINING BRIEF SKETCHES OF THE MOST REMARKABLE EVENTS, UP TO THE PRESENT DAY

      Savannah: Printed and published by Seymour and Williams, 1816. Two volumes. viii,376; vii,[1],424pp. Antique-style half calf and marbled boards, spines gilt. Bookplate on rear pastedowns. Toning, scattered light foxing. About very good. The first history of the state of Georgia and a standard work of southern history as well as an interesting imprint. McCall's history covers events from 1733 to 1783, with the first volume going through 1773 and the second being wholly devoted to the Revolution. The second volume was written largely from personal experience, since McCall was a Revolutionary officer. Willingham says the book is written "intelligently and well" and is "a landmark in the development of Georgia literature." Streeter calls it "the chief source on the border wars with the Creeks and Cherokees. This is one of the rarest of state histories." HOWES M33. DE RENNE, p.344. CHURCH 1305. SABIN 42973.

        Reise nach dem Austral-Lande, in der Absicht die Entdeckung desselben zu vollenden; unternommen in den Jahren 1801, 1802 und 1803. Aus dem Englischen von Ferdinand Götze

      Weimar: Landes-Industire-Comptoir, 1816. Spine slightly rubbed but in generally excellent condition, with the map in fine state.. Octavo, large folding map coloured in outline; an attractive copy in contemporary half calf, flat spine banded and decorated in gilt, leather labels. The very rare first edition in German of Flinders' great voyage account, the official narrative of his classic voyage of discovery in the Investigator, the first circumnavigation of Australia, 'an enlightening and fascinating story of brilliant navigation and discovery' (DNB). Flinders' voyage was a full-scale expedition to discover and explore the entire coastline of Australia (the name that Flinders himself preferred and championed). As Rodney Davidson points out, "the German edition is of particular interest because of its accompanying map": the map identifies Dutch, English and French discoveries on the Australian continent, picking them out in different colours. The text was translated from the English by Ferdinand Götze, who adds a brief preface and some explanatory footnotes; the appendices and two nautical/technical chapters that appeared in the original English edition are omitted. Flinders' work was of great interest to its German audience, then and now. As Henze has pointed out, 'Seine Karten übertreffen die Cookschen an Reichhaltigkeit und Präzision und waren für einige Gebiete noch während des Zweiten Weltkriegs in Gebrauch. Sein Reisewerk steht in der Entdeckungsgeschickte des fünften Kontinents nach Form und Inhalt ohne Gegenstück da' [''His maps surpass even those of Cook in their richness and accuracy, and continued in use for some areas even during the Second World War. His chief significance for the literature of discovery is in his exploration of the fifth continent, unparalleled in its scope and skilful execution'].Although separately issued this was also published as the sixth volume in the series 'Neue Bibliothek der wichtigsten Reisebeschreibungen': in that form it would contain a series title, not present here in this undisturbed volume.

        CAMPAIGN OF WATERLOO, Illustrated with Engravings of les Quatre Bras, la Belle Aliance, Hougoumont, La Haye Sainte and Other Principal Scenes of Action; Including a Correct Military Plan, Together with a Grand View of the Battle on a Large Scale. To Which is Prefixed a History of the Campaign, Compiled From Official Documents and Other Authentic Sources

      London: For Robert Bowyer by T. Bensley and Son, 1816. First edition, earliest issue, printed within a year of the actual events. With six very impressive hand-coloured aquatint engraved scenes on four plates, one of which is folding, a plate of portraits of the British and their allies, a plate of portraits of the French Royal family, the family of Buonaparte, French generals and statesmen, and an engraved map of the battle. Folio (480 x 325mm), handsomely bound in contemporary, very early quarter deep purple morocco over dark blue-gray cloth embossed with a pattern of leafy vines, the backing trimmed with gilt rolled repeating devices of flower and scollop, the paper used for the plates bearing the papermaker's watermark "J. Whatman" and dated 1816 (2) 34, 10 pp. The text and all plates beautifully preserved, the binding with front hinge detached, easily repairable. FIRST EDITION, EARLIEST ISSUE OF THIS VERY IMPRESSIVE CONTEMPORARY ACCOUNT OF WATERLOO INCLUDING SIX FINE FOLIO-SIZED HAND-COLOURED ILLUSTRATIONS. The fine aquatints show; the French troops conveying cannons from the field of battle on July 24, 1815; Hougomont, looking towards Waterloo; La Haye Sainte, looking towards Waterloo; Les Qautre Bas looking towards Waterloo; Les Qautre Bas facing Genappe; and lastly a magnificent folding view of the battlefield from Mont St. Jean at the time of the charge against Napoleon's troops by the British navy led by Sir Arthur Wellesley (Duke of Wellington), general commander of the allied troops, the evening of June 18, 1815. Added to this is the impressive map, or plan, of the battle as it was on Sunday, June 18 when Napoleon's army unsuccessfully faced the troops led by the Duke of Wellington and Prince Blucher. Thus one of the great pivotal moments in European history, the ending of the Napoleonic Wars, the end of Napoleon's reign as Emperor and the end of French hegemony in Europe. Tooley notes that this work was reprinted for several years, the dated papermaker's watermarks being the best way to denote copies from the original year of publication. The plates in this copy are on paper dated 1816, the year of original publication.

        VITA DEL CAVALIERE GIAMBATTISTA BODONI TIPOGRAFO ITALIANO E CATALOGO CHRONOLOGICO DELLE SUE EDIZIONI

      Parma: Dalla Stamperia Ducale, 1816. FIRST EDITION y. This classic biography of the enormously influential Italian printer has all of the production values he held dear: fine paper, generous margins, restrained composition, and, of course, beautiful typography. It also includes the first catalogue raisonné of his publications, described by Birrell & Garnett as "indispensable for the study of his work." The son of a printer, Bodoni (1740-1813) began his career in 1758, at the Roman press of the Vatican's missionary office. Working as a compositor, he distinguished himself with his gift for Middle Eastern languages, and eventually began cutting his own punches. After eight years he decided to leave Rome, hoping to travel to England to train with John Baskerville, whose clear types and unadorned composition he much admired. Illness unfortunately kept him in Italy, thwarting the possible meeting of two printing geniuses. When the Duke of Parma established his royal press in 1768, Bodoni was tapped to head it, and he soon established a reputation for printing excellence, becoming the principal European rival of Didot. By 1790, he was receiving offers to head presses in Rome and other cities, and in order to keep him in Parma, the duke allowed him to open his own private press, where he began to print the Greek and Roman classics that have been sought after by collectors down to the present day. Bodoni created more typefaces than any other typographer before or since--an 1840 inventory of his type counted 25,491 punches and 50,283 matrices--and his type cutting is beautifully displayed in the posthumously published masterwork, "Manuale Tipografico." He is one of a handful of 18th century printers whose work continues to influence typography and design: the "Bodoni" font has been popular since 1910, continuing into the digital era.. 248 x 159 mm. (9 3/4 x 6 1/4"). With the list of subscribers in volume I. Two volumes. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary burgundy roan over matching buckram, raised bands, spines with gilt-ruled compartments, gilt titling, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Both volumes with engraved frontispiece, that in volume I featuring a medallion portrait of Bodoni and that in volume II depicting an angel beside a printing press; original tissue guards. With laid-in 19th century manuscript bibliographical note in French. Brooks 1170; Bigmore and Wyman I, 69; Birrell & Garnett 195. Spines sunned to light brown and a little spotted, short crack to head of one joint, extremities a bit rubbed, boards lightly chafed, but the binding entirely sound, and A VERY FINE COPY INTERNALLY--especially clean, smooth, and bright, with extremely wide margins. This classic biography of the enormously influential Italian printer has all of the production values he held dear: fine paper, generous margins, restrained composition, and, of course, beautiful typography.
