        A poetical descant on the primeval and present state of mankind; or, the pilgrim's muse.

      Winchester, VA: A. Foster, pr. 12mo (13 cm; 5.25"). 219, [1 (errata)] pp.. 1816 Somebody had to be North Carolina's first native born poet and the task/honor was Joseph Thomas's, and he did it with A Poetical Descant! It is scarce, having been printed in small format in a small town by a very small-time printer for a rather small audience. Thomas's other publications include a hymnal and short works of theology (totally fitting given that he was an itinerant preacher), and an autobiograpy. Recent quarter cloth with blue-green paper sides, in the style of early 19th-century American books. Ex–mercantile library with a few stamps, including on title–page. Two letters of title abraded and mostly invisible. A clean copy.

        Nouveau Recueil des Plans des Ports, et Rades de la Mer Mediterranée, dont la majeure partie publiés nouvellement par les meilleurs Auteurs. Genes, chez Yves Gravier Imprimeur Libraire, 1816

      Yves Gravier, 1816. in - 8 oblungo (mm.190x230), ff. (1) di frontespizio figurato inciso,179 tavole incise, (1) di tavola che illustra bandiere navali e mercantili, 1 pianta ripiegata della città di Odessa; 1 foglio sciolto su carta azzurra con un indice dei porti contenuti nella raccolta. Leg. coeva in piena pelle. La presente edizione, uniformemente legata, potrebbe essere una miscellanea di diverse edizioni del celebre portolano tascabile del Roux, a partire dal 1804 fino al 1849. Le prime 163 tavole numerate sono infatti certamente ad opera di Joseph Roux, di cui si sa che apparteneva a una famiglia di idrografi e conduceva una tipografia specializzata in Marsiglia. Nel 1764 Roux aveva pubblicato un album intitolato ''Recueil des principaux plans des ports et rades de la Mer Méditerranée..'', comprensivo di 121 tavole di rade e piani di porti. L'opera incontrò largo favore, e fu ristampata nel 1799 da Yves Gravier, che diede alle stampe anche le edizioni successive. L'album ebbe riedizioni sino al 1848. La presente edizione include carte, (dalla 164 alla 179) scritte in inglese, di Ayrouard (firmate quelle di Portofino, Savona e S. Fiorenzo; attribuibili di Portovenere, Porto Ercole, Porto Longone); di Rizzi Zannoni (firmate quelle di Salerno, Policastro, S. Eufemia; attribuibile quella di Messina); e una carta del Mar di Marmara di J. N. Bellin. Importante suite di piante incise di portolani del Mediterraneo.

        Nuovo esame delle sorgenti della privata e pubblica ricchezza. Tomo primo: Delle sorgenti della privata ricchezza. Tomo secondo: Delle sorgenti della pubblica ricchezza

      Per G. Vincenzi e comp, 1816 - 1817. 2 voll. in - 8° (217x131mm), pp. XVI, 455, (4) di note ed errata; 505, (2) di errata; brossura editoriale a stampa. Ex - libris. Freschissimo esemplare a fogli chiusi e in barbe. Prima edizione, estremamente rara, della maggiore opera dell'economista modenese. "Carlo Bosellini ha avuto nella vita il momento felice il quale basta a dare allo scrittore un posto segnalato nella storia della dottrina. Partito dalla contemplazione del contrasto fra l'umanità faticante e dolorante e quella che in riposo gode i frutti della fatica prima durata. dal contrasto ha logicamente concluso all'assurdo di tassare l'uomo nel primo momento, crescendone la fatica e il dolore, ed alla necessità di far lo stato partecipe dei frutti della fatica nella fase del godimento. Egli ha la consapevolezza della sua posizione singolare, la quale lo avvicina agli Hobbes ed ai Petty; e respinge la identificazione della sua teoria con quella delle imposte sui consumi" (Luigi Einaudi, La teoria dell'imposta in Tommaso Hobbes, sir W. Petty e Carlo Bosellini, Torino, 1933). "L'opera più importante di questo periodo e di tutta la produzione del Bosellini è il Nuovo esame delle sorgenti della privata e pubblica ricchezza, scritta intorno al 1810, ma pubblicata, in due volumi, soltanto nel 1816 - 17 a Modena, dopo la caduta del regime napoleonico che ne aveva vietato la stampa. Nell'opera, scritta sotto l'influsso delle dottrine economiche inglesi e francesi, soprattutto dello Smith e del Say, il B. sostiene che la monarchia costituzionale è la sola possibile garante dei due capisaldi politici sui quali poggiano i progressi dell'economia: libertà (di stampa, commercio, religione, ecc.) e proprietà privata. Queste sono, a loro volta, le due condizioni che assicurano la libera concorrenza e stimolano l'attività economica dei più industriosi; l'accumulazione del capitale è frutto di "previdenza", ottenuta con sacrificio e l'interesse sul capitale è remunerazione di questo sacrificio. Al problema dei tributi è dedicato l'intero secondo volume, in cui l'Einaudi (pp. 346 - 406) ha visto una notevole originalità di impostazione. Contro i fisiocratici, il B. sostiene l'ingiustizia dell'imposta diretta sulla proprietà fondiaria, sul capitale e sui salari: l'una viola la proprietà privata, l'altra colpisce l'industriosità e il lavoro. L'imposta indiretta è la sola che il B. ritiene utile e giusta, perché, secondo lui, l'imposta indiretta è un tributo volontario in quanto pesa su beni non di prima necessità; non viola la proprietà privata in quanto grava, non sul capitale, ma sull'uso di esso; è giusta in quanto si paga su un godimento, reale, come contropartita che il cittadino deve alla società in cambio dei beni che questa gli offre; è meno gravosa per i singoli e più redditizia per lo Stato; colpisce, non l'uomo che lavora e produce, ma l'uomo "in riposo" che consuma. Sul Messaggiere modenese del 19 luglio 1817 Melchiorre Gioia accusò il B. di plagio delle sue teorie esposte nel Nuovo prospetto delle scienze economiche, uscito nel 1815. Con una Lettera a Giuseppe Acerbi, in Biblioteca italiana, X (1818), pp. 141 - 144, il B. si disse disposto a provare, con atti rilasciati dalla magistratura sulla stampa, che il Nuovo esame era già stato scritto nel 1810. La polemica si protrasse fino al 1825 con particolare violenza: lo scritto più notevole con cui il B. intese confutare il Gioia fu pubblicato nel Giornale arcadico di scienze,lettere ed arti, XV (1822 - 23), 3, pp. 285 - 303" (Antonio Rotondò in Diz. Biografico degli Italiani, XIII, p. 252). L'opera è stata ristampata solo nel 1976 dalla Fondazione Einaudi a motivo della sua grande rarità. Einaudi, n. 634. DBI, cit. Palgrave, I, p. 169. Cossa, Introduzione, p. 505.

Browned, left corner with a little loss of paper touching a very few letters, however readable. Exceedingly rare “newspaper” with news of Brown fleet´s action in the Pacific, followed by the “Estado de los Corsarios armados” [State of the Armed Corsairs] to defeat Buenos Aires. This particular part of the newspaper gives a detailed relation of the raids and attacks lead by the flotilla, the considerable booty “empezaron a descargar los buques que estaban listos para la peninsula con mucho dinero y otras especies de valor. La precipitacion fue tanta que los pesos fuertes se derramaban por el muelle” [they began to unload the ships that were ready to depart for the peninsula –Spain- with so much money and other species of value. The precipitation was such that the pesos Fuertes –local currency- were being spilled down the dock], and the ships, vessels and their captains, along with their armament.

        The Most Ancient and Famous History of the Renowned Prince Arthur, King of Britaine,

      R. Wilks, London 1816 - 12mo. 3 volumes. xxiv [25]-326; xvi [17]-381; xvi [17]377pp. Engraved title pages in each volume. Engraved frontispiece of the Death of Sir Launcelot present in Volume 1, of the Parting of Tristan and Isolde in Volume 2, and of Prince Arthur Obtaining the Sword in Volume 3. The folding plate of the Round Table is also present in Volume 1.Publisher's original printed paper boards, basically a flimsy binding intended only to preserve the textblock until the set could be rebound in leather pursuant to the buyer's wishes. The boards are worn, rubbed and soiled; the upper board of Volume II has been supplied from another copy and remargined to fit, the paper spines are largely perished. All boards have been professionally reattached with archival tissue. The textblocks show the usual offsetting of the engraved titles and frontispieces to each other as well as some foxing, but are otherwise fairly nice. Housed in a custom made leather backed clamshell case, gilt spine title. There seem to have been two issues of this set, with one issue a little larger than the other, and with the borders round the text more intricate. This is the simpler state, with the borders a single chain design. The textblocks are untrimmed, The set measures approximately 3=1/8 by 5-3/4 inches. The Morte d'Arthur was first printed by Caxton in 1485 and was followed by editions in 1498, 1529, 1557 and 1634. Owing to the rise of the Commonwealth, stories of kings were generally suppressed; no further editions of the Morte d'Arthur were printed until 1816, which saw two editions of which this is one. Important edition, marking the start of modern interest in Arthuriana. By 1858, Thomas Wright was already describing this edition as rare. But it is, with the two volume 1816 edition, the earliest more or less easily obtainable edition of King Arthur available, though copies of the previous edition of 1634 occasionally come on the market. Gaines, A8, which does not distinguish between the states. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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 handsome set, 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." S. Lupack, bookseller.

        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".

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). Bel exemplaire dans sa condition de parution. Quelques rousseurs, [Attributes: Hard Cover]
