        A description of the correct method of waltzing, the truly fashionable species of dancing, that, from the graceful and pleasing beauty of its movements, has obtained an ascendancy over every other department of that public branch of education. Part I. Containing a correct explanatory description of the several movements and attitudes in German and French waltzing. ...... Illustrated by engravings, from original designs and drawings, by J.H.A. Randall

      London, printed for the author, 2, Greville Street, Hatton Garden: published by Sherwood, Neely, and Jones. 1816. 8vo., with a fine folding coloured frontispiece showing couples waltzing, 6 other uncoloured engraved plates, (1) + lxi + (1) + 63 - 113 + (4) leaves, without the final advertisement for New Works> referred to by Abbey, printed throughout on rectos only, original pink boards with green glazed paper spine, printed title label, some wear to head and foot of spine, entirely uncut. A fine copy. First edition: scarce. C.W. Beaumont, Bibliography of dancing> (1929) pp.194-195. Abbey, Life>, 420. Magriel, Bibl. of Dancing>, (1936) p.107. A milestone in the history of English dance. Thomas Wilson (fl. 1800-1839), dancing-master and writer, was active in London during the early 19th century. His career probably began at the King's Theatre Opera House; from the early 1800s he taught at his own dancing academy, variously based at Bedford Row, Ludgate Hill, and Hatton Garden, where he was assisted by his wife and sufficient staff to form sets for any of the social dances then popular. When in 1816 Wilson published A description of the correct method of waltzing>, it 'probably followed the appearance of the shocking new dance at the Prince Regent's ball on 13 July 1816*, and its introduction to Almack's assembly rooms by one of its patronesses, Princess Lieven, a leading London society hostess. ...... Wilson's work at the theatre - where he would have helped to train many of the opera dancers—together with his teaching and writing activities, had a direct impact on the style and performance of social dancing. He was very much a traditionalist, preferring the allemande or German style of waltz, in which the dancers had intertwining arms, to the close hold which so scandalized sections of society, and which became beloved of the aristocracy. Wilson's manuals explain the figures in text and illustration, and several are accompanied by music suitable for each dance, and all fully describe the correct style and manner of performance, together with the correct ballroom etiquette expected of both ladies and gentlemen. This was an issue on which Wilson was at great pains to instruct his readers, as he feared standards of dancing would be ?'perverted into a chaos of riot and confusion?' if left to decline any further. ......... Some modern writers have commented that Wilson's figure descriptions can be difficult to follow, and that the more complicated, balletic steps that Wilson included were in fact the province of only a few extremely accomplished dancers. Despite Wilson's traditional and conservative stance, later generations are indebted to him for a comprehensive description of the most popular social dances of this period.' [Gail Ford in ODNB]. The plates in this book are worth noting. The extended coloured frontispiece of a ballroom with nine couples dancing the waltz, with a seven-piece orchestra in a box at the side of the room, the women in a variety of most elegant and colourful Empire-style dresses, the men in white cravats and tails. The other engravings include one showing 'the five positions (of the feet) in dancing', another a 'sketch shewing the movements performed within the circle formed in waltzing', while the remaining four plates are of music adapted to various named waltzes. * It is worth noting that the coloured plate here was published by Sherwood & Co. of London on July 14th 1816.

        Die Staats-National-Wirthschaft. Versuch über die Gesetze zu Leitung und Beförderung der National-Produktion, der Landwirthschaft, der Gewerbe und des Handels. Nach den Grundsätzen der National-Oekonomie. Aarau: H.R. Sauerländer, 1816.

      - First edition of the sixth volume in Reichsgraf von Soden's Nazional-Ökonomie (9 vols, Leipzig, Aarau and Nuremberg, 1805–24). This volume is concerned with economic legislation. The fifth volume had been about finance (Leipzig, 1811), and the seventh would go on to deal with policing (Aarau, 1818), the eighth with education (Aarau, 1824) and the ninth with state administration (Nuremburg 1824). 'Inspired by Adam Smith's ideas about production and distribution of the wealth of nations, Soden conceptualized his voluminous work Nazional-Ökonomie into a German version of Smith's political economy. Soden and Ludwig Heinrich von Jakob, professor of cameralism at the University of Halle, claimed to be the first to create the term 'Nationalökonomie' for the new science, 'which worked out the principles of all public institutions and measures' and which was based on laws similar to the laws of nature' (Dictionary of Eighteenth-Century German Philosophers). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 8vo,iv, 376, [1] pp., contemporary half calf over marbled boards, lightly rubbed, spine ruled gilt with red label, edges green, fresh and unspotted, without stamps or inscriptions, a fine copy.

        Beautiful one page Presidential ALS by James Madison advising Virginia Governor William Cary on the state of the first, and highly important comprehensive survey of the coast of the United States

      Washington, May 17, 1816. 8" x 9.75". "Autograph Letter Signed, ""James Madison,"" as President, 1 page, 8"" x 9.75"", Washington, May 17, 1816 [to Virginia Governor William C. Nicholas (1761-1820)] concerning the prospects for a hydrographic survey of several Virginia Rivers including the Potomac and York as well as the Hampton Roads region, but rejecting the idea of retaining Ferdinand Hassler, the head of the United States Coastal Survey, due to competing demands on the surveyor's time. Expected mailing folds, a few light soiled spots from a paperclip, else fine condition. In 1816, the Virginia legislature authorized funds to produce ""an accurate Map of the State to be made from actual surveys."" Learning that Madison's superintendent of the U.S. Coastal Survey, Ferdinand Hassler, had recently returned from Europe with surveying instruments unavailable in America, Governor Carey wished to know if a survey of the Virginia coast had been performed or planned, and if Mr. Hassler's services could be retained by his state (Carey to Madison, May 10, 1816, Library of Congress). Seven days later, Madison responded: ""I have duly received your letter of May 10. It is true as you have understood, that Mr. Hassler is ingaged [sic], under an Act of Congress, to make a survey of the Coasts & of the U.S. and that he procure for the purposes instruments of peculiar excellence. But the survey is not yet commenced, and it is not probable that it will be extended to Virginia during the ensuing summer. You will infer, of course, that neither Mr. Hassler nor the Instruments can be spared for any other service. A survey of the Potowmac [sic] for any distance above its mouth is not likely to fall within the general survey provided for. Particular surveys of York river at least as far as York Town, and of Hampton Roads, have been made under the direction of the Navy Board; by Capt. Sinclair. A copy of his report can at any time be had; and you will be able to avail yourself of any other surveys made under the same direction."" Ferdinand Rudolph Hassler (1770-1843) was a Swiss-born surveyor who emigrated to the United States in 1805 and served as a professor of mathematics at West Point. In 1811, the federal government retained Hassler's services to undertake the first comprehensive survey of the coast of the United States, authorized by an act of Congress passed in 1807. To prepare for the survey, Hassler travelled to Europe to obtain the necessary instruments, but the War of 1812 delayed his return until the end of the conflict. Upon his return, James Madison formally appointed Hassler as the first superintendent of the United States Coastal Survey, and the following year, he began a survey of New York Harbor. Due to conflicts between civilian and military officials, the survey was suspended and control of the survey was passed along to the United States Army. In the meantime, Hassler had become head of the Bureau of Weights and Measures. The coastal survey lingered for over a decade when Andrew Jackson reinstated the survey and placed Hassler at the head of the effort and remained in that position until his death in 1843. After he signed off, Madison added a short postscript suggesting an alternative to Hassler: ""Isaac Briggs now of the State of Delaware is known to be skilful in every requisite for the most accurate charts. He may perhaps become an auxiliary to Mr. Hassler. If he should not he may claim your attention in selecting an able hand for the contemplated map."" Isaac Briggs (1743-1825), a Quaker engineer and surveyor whom Madison suggested as an alternative, assisted Andrew Ellicott in his original survey of the District of Columbia, and in 1803, Thomas Jefferson appointed him Surveyor General of the Mississippi Territory. Briggs was among the engineers who worked on the Erie Canal as well as the James River and Kanawha Canal in Virginia. A friend of both Jefferson and Madison, Briggs was a member of the American Philosophical Society. "

        A VOYAGE ROUND THE WORLD, FROM 1806 TO 1812; IN WHICH JAPAN, KAMSCHATKA, THE ALEUTIAN ISLANDS, AND THE SANDWICH ISLANDS, WERE VISITED. INCLUDING A NARRATIVE OF THE AUTHOR'S SHIPWRECK ON THE ISLAND OF SANNACK, AND HIS SUBSEQUENT WRECK IN THE SHIP'S LONG BOAT. WITH AN ACCOUNT OF THE PRESENT STATE OF THE SANDWICH ISLANDS, AND A VOCABULARY OF THEIR LANGUAGE

      Edinburgh. 1816.. 288pp. Lacks the half title. Folding frontispiece map. Modern three- quarter calf and marbled boards. Very minor scattered foxing, but generally quite clean internally. Very good. The scarce first edition of this valuable account of Campbell's voyage to Japan and China, with much useful information on Hawaii and Alaska. While in China, Campbell joined the crew of the American ship Eclipse, sailing out of Boston and captained by Joseph O'Cain (called "O'Kean" in the text here). He departed China and went on to Japan and Kamchatka, and thence to Alaska, where the Eclipse was shipwrecked in 1807. Campbell gives an important and early description of Alaska. He wintered at the Russian base at Kodiak in 1808, where he met Baranov, who happened to be there at the time, and gives a valuable description of life on Kodiak. After his shipwreck on Kodiak, both of Campbell's feet froze, and they were eventually amputated. After the amputation Campbell was sent to Hawaii to rehabilitate and became friendly with King Kamehameha I, for whom he made sails. "Campbell's account of his stay in Hawaii...is of the greatest importance, being the first narrative from the viewpoint of a resident rather than as a visitor....The author lived among the chiefs and then with Isaac Davis, and he identifies some of the earliest foreign residents of the islands, a number of whom were Botany Bay men. His keen firsthand observations on the social structure and agricultural practices of Hawaiians are of great importance" - Forbes. A twenty-five-page appendix contains a Hawaiian vocabulary, and an additional three pages contain Hawaiian phrases useful to seamen. The map is a rather detailed chart of the Northwest Coast, showing the "Track of the Eclipse's Long Boat from Sannack to Kodiak 1807." After his time in Hawaii, Campbell spent two years in various businesses in Rio de Janeiro, also discussed in this narrative. This account of his adventures, edited by James Smith, was published in an attempt to benefit Campbell. HOWES C88, "aa." LADA-MOCARSKI 71. HILL 244. SABIN 10210. FORBES 448. WICKERSHAM 6544.

        Angelo's Infantry Sword Exercise; Established by the Prince Regent's Command

      By Authority, W. Clowes, 1816. The Figures by I. [J.] A. Atkinson, Engraved by I. Robinson, with hand-colour. Large broadside, 31" x 21". The Figures by I. [J.] A. Atkinson, Engraved by I. Robinson, with hand-colour. Large broadside, 31" x 21" Highly attractive instructional single-sheet. Along the top are a series of figures showing the "Preparatory Movements" or postures, beneath is a large circular "target" with the directions of the seven cuts and guards together with the words of command for the Infantry Sword Exercise. The figures are by John Augustus Atkinson who was noted for his "spirited and lifelike" figure-drawing; "His figures, artistically arrested in movement, show rather an actor's sensibility than a draughtsman's skill. " [DNB] Here he shows a range of contemporary infantry uniforms including the Rifle Brigade and a Highlander. Angelo's Fencing Academy was established in 1759 by Domenico Angelo Malevolti Tremamondo who had first established himself in London as a riding master. Angelo, as he became known, set up a highly fashionable "école d'escrime" in Soho which enjoyed the patronage of the Prince of Wales and the Duke of Devonshire. Such was his perceived authority in the area of the art of the fence that the plates of his L'École d'Armes were reproduced in the Encyclopédie illustrative of the section on "Escrime." Angelo's eldest son Henry, who had put the final polish on his fencing skills studying in Paris under Motet, became virtual head of his father's académie around 1785 and continued its reputation as "not only a school-of-arms, [but as] a school of deportment as well" [Aylward, The House of Angelo, p. 38.] In turn Henry's son, also named Henry, inherited the business when his father "retired from ther active conduct of the school" in 1817 [DNB]. The present item is dedicated "To Field Marshal His Royal Highness, The Duke of York. by Henry Angelo Junr." who we must presume to be the latter Henry despite the dating to 1816. At this stage in the history of the House of Angelo it was probably unnecessary for him to seek patronage with a well-placed dedication, and in 1833 he was appointed Superintendent of Sword Exercise in the Army. However, it does appears that this was based entirely on personal merit, his method being such that "even the soldiers themselves are anxious to learn it" [Aylward, p. 190]. A wonderful survival of the Angelo dynasty, a school-of-arms that became, "in the end, nothing less than a British Institution" [ibid. p. 183].

With the bookplates of Robert Hoe and Mary MacMillin Norton Robert Hoe III (10 March 1839 New York City ?" 22 September 1909 London) was an American businessman and producer of printing press equipment. He succeeded Richard March Hoe as head of R. Hoe & Company, which continued its preeminence among printing-press makers. He was one of the organizers and first president of the Grolier Club, the well-known New York organization for the promotion of bookmaking as an art. He was an extensive collector of rare books and manuscripts as well as silver, miniatures, and other art objects, his collections at the time of his death being valued at several million dollars. The catalogues of his library were unique and valuable from both a typographical and bibliographical standpoint. His collection of books was sold in 1912, and this is most likely when Ms. MacMillin Norton acquired the volume[Jessel & Horr, A Bibliography of Works in English on Playing Cards and Gaming, #1563].

Backstrip scuffed, especially along joints. Edges rubbed. Internally sound and clean. Early American editions of Wheatley's "Poems on Various Subjects, Religious and Moral" are notoriously scarce. The first American edition was published in Philadelphia in 1786. This "New England" edition was actually the third edition published in New England (preceded by the 1802 Walpole and 1804 Hartford editions). These rare American editions (which usually turn up in much more worn condition than this appealing copy) do not include the frontis contained in the highly collectible but much more common London edition of 1773.

Volumes on hydrography were separately published and actually distributed by a different bookseller. This is the format in which the voyage publication is normally seen with two volumes of text and two parts of the atlas, often referred to as the "general reader's set". The exceptional illustrations are by the remarkable artist Charles-Alexandre Lesueur: "Lesueur's scientific work runs parallel to artistic work of great importance. He was at one and the same time draughtsman and painter, naturalist and landscape artist. His talent was recognised in France in his own lifetime, by the award... of the silver medal of the Société des Beaux-Arts..." (Baudin in Australian Waters, p. 26).The well-equipped Baudin expedition was one of the great French voyages of discovery, and made significant visits to Western Australia, Tasmania and Sydney. The coastal explorations are commemorated by numerous place-names along the Australian coast, especially in Tasmania and Western Australia.The French and English completed their circumnavigations of the Australian continent at approximately the same time, but Flinders's imprisonment by the French on Mauritius meant that it was this French account which contained the first complete and detailed chart of the Australian continent to appear in print. This map, often said to have been at least partly based on Flinders's charts and papers seized by the French, is one of the most beautiful, as well as one of the most famous of all maps of Australia.

        Researches into the History of Playing Cards; with Illustrations of the Origin of Printing and Engraving on Wood

      Printed by T. Bensley & Son for Robert Triphook, London 1816 - Folio. full red morocco with elaborate gilt borders on covers, spine with five raised bands and elaborate gilt, lettered in gilt, inner gilt dentelles, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers, by "David". Illustrated with nineteen plates, some in colour, and numerous woodcuts. One of 250 copies for subscribers. With the bookplates of Robert Hoe and Mary MacMillin Norton. Robert Hoe III (10 March 1839 New York City Ð 22 September 1909 London) was an American businessman and producer of printing press equipment. He succeeded Richard March Hoe as head of R. Hoe & Company, which continued its preeminence among printing-press makers. He was one of the organizers and first president of the Grolier Club, the well-known New York organization for the promotion of bookmaking as an art. He was an extensive collector of rare books and manuscripts as well as silver, miniatures, and other art objects, his collections at the time of his death being valued at several million dollars. The catalogues of his library were unique and valuable from both a typographical and bibliographical standpoint. His collection of books was sold in 1912, and this is most likely when Ms. MacMillin Norton acquired the volume.
