        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.

        Den Haag, feest op het Malieveld - Dirk Sluyter naar Haatje Pieters Oosterhuis, 1816.

      FEEST OP HET MALIEVELD"Volksfeest gevierd in 's Gravenhage den 16de September 1816'. Ets met aquatint vervaardigd door Dirk Sluyter naar een tekening van Haatje Pieters Oosterhuis, uitgegeven te Amsterdam door J.C. Hagedoorn. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd (met latere toevoegingen). Afm. (prent) 33,2 x 46,7 cm.Er werd een volksfeest gehouden in 's Gravenhage ter ere van de aankomst van Willem II, erfprins der Nederlanden en Anna Paulowna, grootvorstin van Rusland na hun huwelijk in Sint Petersburg in februari 1816. 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).

        Autograph Letter in French from a Young French Cotton Merchant in Rio de Janeiro to his Father, Signed "J.H. Laine," with the latest News about the Brazilian Market].

      Rio de Janeiro 1816 - Rio de Janeiro, 20 September 1816. Quarto (ca. 25,5x19,5 cm). 3 pp. Brown ink on watermarked laid paper, addressed and sealed on the 4th page. With a period ink inscription in another hand on the 1st page. Small hole on the 3rd page after opening, not affecting the text, otherwise a very good letter. An interesting letter from a young French merchant in Rio de Janeiro addressed to his father who is also his business partner. In the beginning he outlines the most efficient way of sending correspondence to Rio de Janeiro - via a British packet boat which "leaves on the first day of each month from Falmouth and reaches us in about fifty days." Then the author complains that the "trade is still very bad here. I would have sold all the cheap things if we haven't badly done the invoice". He complains that because of the mistake in the invoice they received "rouge de theatre" instead of "porcelaine [?]", and it can't be sold [apparently talking about different colour of fabrics]. Then follows the contents of the invoice, supplemented with a note that "in this country they don't use red, and the theatre being closed we can't get rid of it". The young merchant also mentions trade ships from Bordeaux and hopes that there won't be too many of them loaded with luxury goods. He notes that sugar, as well as leather and coffee is expensive in Brazil, and then proceeds: "If you want to send me cheap things please don't send me tobacco and wine, because the former is considered smuggling and very difficult to import, and the second is a very unprofitable article along with all sort of fragrance". In the end he asks his father for at least 300 francs to buy a horse which is absolutely necessary here. "We live 1 and a half lieue from the city, as I'm obliged to go very often, summer will start here, and the heat is extremely strong; but I can't go to town often without becoming sick". Overall a rich in content letter about early French trade in Rio de Janeiro. The author is most likely a relative of noted French admiral Pierre Jean Honorat Laine (1796-1875).

        An account of the origin, principles, proceedings, and results of an institution for teaching adults to read, established in the contiguous parts of Bucks & Berks, in 1814. Dedicated to His Royal Highness the Prince Regent, patron of the institution.

      Windsor, printed for Knight and Son; and sold by Hatchard, and Gale and Fenner, London. 1816. 4to., xvi (numbered xvii in error) + 140pp., including the half-title, with a small library withdrawal stamp on front free endpaper, original boards, entirely uncut, sometime rebacked with paper, inscribed in ink on upper cover, The Right Honble Lord Grenville*, from the general committee.> A large, crisp. copy in fine state of preservation. First edition: uncommon. (COPAC + OCLC locate copies at several libraries in the UK but only Concordia Un. Lib. in N.America.) A detailed and very full account of this provincial school for adults, motivated, of course, by the Christian objective that the uneducated working classes should be encouraged to read the Scriptures. Charles Goddard (1769/70 - 1848), a philanthropic and dedicated Church of England clergyman, was at the time serving as curate of the parish of Hitcham in Buckinghamshire. As general secretary of this adult institution, he uses this Account> to put on record the thinking behind the project. In summary, it was proving fruitless to teach Christian principles and the Christian faith to children when there was no support at home. 'Ordinarily speaking', Goddard writes, 'the illiterate and ignorant parent, himself without the desire or the means of instruction, is wholly indifferent to that of his children; and does not content himself with the bare neglect of his religious duties, but allows himself to scoff at them. The habitual and irreverent use of the name of the Deity; oaths of every kind indiscriminately applied to truth and falsehood, upon slight occasions as on the most important ones; the violation of the Sabbath-day; not the coveting merely, but the actual purloining systematically of his neighbours' property, in all those instances where it may be done with impunity; these are the scenes which the children of the poorer classes are in far the greater number of instances exposed to witness, by means of the most impressive part of their education - that which is given them under the roof of their parents.' [pp.107-8]. The first Adult Sunday School had been founded in Nottingham in 1798. By 1816 there were 31 such schools with an estimated 1581 adults in attendance. * William Wyndam Grenville, Baron Grenville (1759-1834), statesman, Prime Minister 1806-07 and leader of the Whig party 1807-17.

        Mémoire sur le sucre de betteraves ; Par M. le Comte CHAPTAL, Membre de la première classe de l'institut royal, chevalier de l'ordre du roi, grand-officier de la légion d'honneur, etc. Lu à la première Classe de l'Institut royal de France, le 23 octobre 1815.

      A Paris, de l'imprimerie de Madame Huzard, 1816 - 60 pp. Broché. Un important mémoire du Comte Chaptal. Depuis le blocus anglais sur l'importation de la canne-à-sucre des colonies françaises, la production de sucre sur le territoire national devint un enjeu économique majeur sous l'Empire. Entre différentes options, dont celle de l'érable qui était perçue comme viable et rentable, l'Etat privilégie plutôt l'exploitation du sucre extrait de la culture de la betteraves. Chaptal comprit rapidement les bénéfices que l'Etat français pouvait tirer de cette nouvelle industrie, et en moins de dix ans (1811), la France put produire 100 000 tonnes de sucre sur le territoire nationale, la plaçant ainsi en tête des nations productrices en Europe. Cet important mémoire, publié après les Cent Jours, entérine cette découverte majeure et pérennise par l'autorité de son rédacteur cette nouvelle industrie française. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Emma:

      London: for John Murray,, 1816. A Novel. In three volumes. By the Author of "Pride and Prejudice," &c. &c. 3 volumes, duodecimo (177 x 104 mm). Contemporary half calf, with some repairs. With the half-titles in all three volumes, that in vol. I moved to the front. First edition of the last completed of Jane Austen's novels, fully displaying her mastery of free indirect speech, an innovation in the English novel. She had fallen out with Egerton over publication of Mansfield Park and transferred to Murray, who published the second edition of that book and the first edition of Emma on the same terms: each was published at the author's expense, with profits to the author after payment of a 10 per cent commission to the publisher. In keeping with Murray's stated views on edition sizes, 2,000 copies were printed. Emma is the only one of Jane Austen's novels to bear a dedication, unwillingly made, to the Prince Regent, the arrangement of which generated a richly comic correspondence between the author and the Prince Regent's librarian.

        Poesías de D. Ignacio Rodriguez Galvan.

      First edition. Born in 1816 in the small town of Tizayuca in what is now the state of Hidalgo, Rodriguez Galvan is widely credited with being the initiator of the Romantic movement in Mexico. He wrote novels, poetry, plays, and was the editor of several periodicals, most especially Calendario de las Señoritas Mexicanas and Año Nuevo, El Recreo de las Familias. He died of yellow fever in Havana in 1842 at the age of 27 while en route to South America on a diplomatic mission. A few of the poems in vol. I were penned in => Havana before his death. These volumes offer his "Composiciones líricas originales" in vol. I and "Composiciones dramáticas originales" in vol. II. The frontispiece is a fine lithographic portrait of Don Ignacio, in Romantic style of course; there is a liberal use of handsome tailpieces. The whole was compiled and edited by the author's brother Antonio. => This first edition is uncommon in our experience as dealers in Mexicana. Provenance: Masonic stamp, "Porfirio del Rio" on title-page; inscription to fly-leaf of A. Quijano, 1916.

Salt, a British traveller and Egyptologist, first visited Ethiopia in 1805, and returned in 1809 on a diplomatic mission intended to promote ties between the British government and the Emperor of Abyssinia. The Voyage gives Salt's observations of Ethiopian customs, manners, dress, cuisine, and music, along with the factual details of his diplomatic achievements — or lack thereof, in terms of concrete agreements — followed by an appendix comparing vocabulary words from various languages spoken along "the Coast of Africa, from Mosambique to the borders of Egypt, with a few others spoken in the Interior of that Continent" (p. 395).

      1816, Paris 1816 - André Ampère (1775-1836) classified the 48 known elements into three major families (gaxolytes, leucolytes and chriocolytes) that he further divided into 15 "genres," based on "analogies" between the elements, chemical properties that seemed related to one another. He did this in three papers in this multi-volume set: Also contains Augustin Fresnel's "Mémoire sur la diffraction de la lumière, où l'on examine particulièrement le phénomènes des franges colorées que présentent les ombres des corp éclaireés par un point lumineux" by Augustin Fresnel (Volume I, pp. 239-281, 1816) and André Ampère's "D'une Classification naturelle pour les Corps simples" (Annales de Chimie et de Physique 1 pp. 295-308, 1816);"Suite de l'Essai d'une Classification naturelle pour les Corps simples" (Volume I, pp. 373-394, 1816); and "Suite d'une Classification naturelle pour les Corps simples" (Volume II, pp. 5-32 & 108-125, 1816). 452, 440, 448 pp. 8vo.

      1816, Paris 1816 - Augustin-Jean Fresnel's (1788-1827) first published paper on light. In it he repeated with more precision the diffraction experiment first performed by Thomas Young, thus supporting the wave theory of light. He also provided the basis for determining the wavelength of light by establishing the algebraic relationship between the wavelength and the spacing of diffraction fringes and made the first tentative speculation about the transverse nature of light waves.
