Rowlandson, Thomas
[London, 1817. 24 hand-colored aquatints (9 x 6 inches), [38, blanks] pp. 4to (11-1/4 x 9 inches). Half contemporary red morocco, marbled paper covered boards, red morocco lable to front cover, stamped "Illustarations of the Vicar of Wakefield," and marbled endpapers; spine and corners rubbed and worn, joints worn and splitting, plates slightly soiled in the margins with some tears affecting a few of the plates. Rowlandson, Thomas. 24 hand-colored aquatints (9 x 6 inches), [38, blanks] pp. 4to (11-1/4 x 9 inches). Portfolio of 24 hand-colored aquatint plates printed on thick handmade wove paper from the Ackerman edition (London: 1817) of Oliver Goldsmith's "Vicar of Wakefield." The plates here are bound in the same order they appeared in Goldsmith's novel, but lack the imprint information that appeared on each plate in that edition. The plate mark of each image in the volume measures 9 by 6 inches, dimensions consistent with the size of the plates in the printed book and presumably it was produced as a deluxe, and perhaps unique companion to the novel. No listings in OCLC for titles comprising the plates only. The volume shows wear from usage, but the plates themselves remain bright. Tooley 436

Philadelphia: Eastwick & Stacy,, 1817. Duodecimo bound in 6s (184 x 107 mm). Contemporary tree sheep, rebacked, flat spine ruled gilt, original red morocco spine label preserved, edges yellow. Engraved landscape frontispiece; engraved portrait frontispiece to the essay on poverty. Early ownership inscription to front free endpaper verso, "Jos.

Extremities worn, corners bumped, some stripping to boards with two indentations to the front, endpapers browned from turn-ins and sometime removal of inscription to front pastedown, gutters strengthened, a little loss to front free endpaper along fore edge, contents browned, else a very good copy. An important early American utopian tract and probably the earliest appearance of Owenism in America. Blatchly, a New York Quaker and apothecary, was founder and moving spirit of the New York Society for Promoting Communities, an important source of utopian ideas and activity for several years preceding Owen's arrival in America. In 1822, Blatchly published "An Essay on Commonwealths," which contained extensive selections from Owen's "New View of Society." A copy was presented to Owen on his arrival in America by Blatchly himself. Ironically, it was this first champion of Owen in America who was largely responsible for injecting a strong dose of religious fervour into Owen's secularism, which became a major obstacle to Owen's success in America. Blatchly's radical ideas are set forth for the first time in the essay on poverty included in this work. In … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dibdin states that over £4500 was spent on its production, the composition alone amounting to six guineas a sheet. Its publication was a financial success and doubtless marks the high-water mark of the Dibdinian bibliomania. On the 9th of December 1817 Dibdin gave a dinner in celebration of the publication of this book to which he invited a dozen of his Roxburghe Club friends..."¬óJackson.

MALTHUS, Thomas Robert.
London: John Murray,, 1817. A classic of economic thought 3 volumes, octavo. Uncut in the original drab paper boards, printed label to spines. A few pencilled marginalia. Light chipping to labels and paper covering of boards, patches of faint discolouration to covers, minor wear to spine ends, pages of end of vol. II and all of vol. III unopened, closed tear at head of vol. III p. 455. A well-preserved copy in the fragile original boards. First three-volume edition, the fifth overall, with extensive additions compared to the previous editions. Malthus contributed a new preface, rewrote chapters 8 to 13, and provided new chapters on France, England, and the Poor Laws. The additions were so substantial that Malthus also published them in a separate volume, for those who owned earlier editions. The essay, one of the most important and influential works in the history of economic thought, was first published in 1798. "The central idea of the essay - and hub of the Malthusian theory - was a simple one Â… If the natural increase in population occurs the food supply becomes insufficient and the size of the population is checked by 'misery' - that is the poorest sections of the community suffer disease and famine" (PMM). Despite its unpopularity with liberal critics, Malthus's principle of population became accepted as a central tenet of classical political economy and Charles Darwin acknowledged Malthus's influence in the development of his theory of natural selection.

(JEFFERSON, Thomas.) TRACY, Antonie Destutt de.
Georgetown: Published by Joseph Milligan,, 1817. The merit of this work will, I hope, place it in the hands of every reader in our country" - Jefferson Octavo (207 x 130 mm). Recent half calf, red morocco label, marbled sides. Pencilled notes to terminal blank and a few pencilled marks in margins; small withdrawn stamp to dedication page. Faint foxing and toning to pages as usual, small chip to bottom corner of p. iii. A very good copy. First edition in English, revised and edited by Thomas Jefferson. The French text was first published in 1815 as the fourth volume of Tracy's Traité d'Idéologie (the first separate edition in French was in 1823). The French philosopher Antoine Destutt de Tracy (1754-1836), renowned for coining the word "ideology" in 1796, was a friend and correspondent of Jefferson. Jefferson had already published Tracy's boldly liberal commentary on Montesquieu in 1811 under a pseudonym, to protect Tracy's position as a French senator under Napoleon's regime. The present work is Tracy's treatise on economics, a strong defence of free enterprise and property rights. Jefferson clearly deemed its ideas to be of value to the young republic, writing in his dedication that "The merit of this work will, I hope, place it in the hands of every reader in our country. By diffusing sound principles of Political Economy, it will protect the public industry from the parasite institutions now consuming it, and lead us to that just and regular distribution of the public burthens from which we have sometimes strayed".

A tall copy in grey boards, respined to style with paper title label. Near fine. The Rights of Man is one of the most important revolutionary documents of all time, countering Edmund Burke's attack on the French Revolution, and inspiring many of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America. Paine's scathing Letter to George Washington is a torrid character assassination in which the President is described as treacherous, vain, ungrateful and an incompetent commander. In Agrarian Justice Paine discusses taxation, welfare and proposes the dividend system later known as Citizen's Basic Income.

Dark blue green textured cloth over boards, printed paper spine labels (minor chipping), bottom edge slightly trimmed, others uncut. Fine. First edition. Half titles present, D6 in vol. I a cancel. 3 vols. 12mo. Rare Peacock Satire in Early Cloth Binding. "ANTHELIA MELINCOURT, at the age of twenty-one, was mistress of herself and of ten thousand a year, and of a very ancient and venerable castle in one of the wildest valleys in Westmoreland." The opening line of Melincourt is indisputably a rejoinder to Austen's celebrated gambit in Pride and Prejudice (1813), and Peacock's sharpest satire of wealth, fortune-hunting, and politics, recounts the fortunes of the heiress and her social climbing friends, as well as the bon-vivant Sir Telegraph Paxarent, his philosophical friend Mr. Forester, and the career of Sir Oran Haut-ton - a "specimen of the natural and original man" and an orang-utan of high fashion, "heightened by a pair of enormous whiskers, and the folds of a vast cravat" - who is elected as one of the MPs for the venerable rotten borough of Onevote. A rare work that is almost invariably seen in worn half leather bindings, the present copy of Melincourt is in a nicely preserved near contemporary binding of dark green cloth, with printed spine labels (the publication date is too early by a few years for this to to be publisher's cloth), a very handsome triple-decker with good provenance.

Two works in five parts bound in one volume. 8vo. 52; vi, 96; (vi), 58; vii, 98, (1); 118, iv, (2) pp. Recent speckled half calf over marbled boards, spine with raised bands, gilt lettered black label, gilt lettered direct to another two panels. Very good. Gimbel, cf. pp. 19 and 21 for I and II, p. 68 for III, pp. 93 and 109 for IV and V. According to the Norfolk Public Library catalogue these are 7th, 6th and 2nd British editions of the parts of the Age of Reason. The third part was first published in New York in 1807 as a separate work, before being republished in London thus in 1811 by Daniel Isaac Eaton. The long delay in its appearance in Britain can be ascribed to the controversy of his previous works and pursuance of the British government against Paine and his publishers. Indeed Eaton was himself tried and convicted for publishing this work, publishing an account of his trial the following year. Having been effectively suppressed the 1811 edition is scarce, with only three copies listed on Copac, and though this 1818 edition was sold more freely it is not commomly available either.

Calf well rubbed with small losses at spine. Joints starting. A few plates trimmed, as usual, with slight loss. Otherwise an internally clean, bright, and fine copy. Housed in a fleece-lined half black morocco clamshell case. An excellent example of this rare Rowlandson work, which originally appeared in 1816 in eight parts in wrappers. Copies were subsequently bound up from the original parts and issued with a letterpress title dated 1817, as here. The plates illustrate taverns, racing, fishing, country life, boating, etc. and contain up to three scenes each. Only three of the plates are titled within the etching, nos. 22 ("Stamford Castle"), 24 ("Glastonbury"), and 30 ("The Social Day"). Plate 39, often misnumbered "40", is correctly printed.

London: John Murray. 1817. First edition of both parts, each an inscribed presentation copy. First edition of both parts, each an inscribed presentation copy. Two volumes bound in one. Contemporary full red morocco gilt. All edges gilt. A very good copy, the attractive binding with gilt borders and titles, skillfully repaired to the spine tips. Previous owner's bookplate to the reverse of the front free endpaper with some spotting and darkening to the margins of early pages. Scarce in first edition, rare in presentation state. The first work of science fiction by a Scottish author, Armata is also considered to be the first novel with a parallel (twin) Earth concept.Volume one inscribed by Erskine at the head of the title page "To Miss Emily Calcraft / with the author's best regards", a previous owner's ink inscription [possibly in the hand of Emily Calcraft] "By Lord Erskine" partially scratched out from beneath the printed title. Two pages with emendations by the author in the margins. Volume two inscribed by Erskine at the head of the title page "To Miss Emily Calcraft / from the author" and with notes to the margins of three pages. At the rear, over six pages in manuscript are an appendix and notes by the author. No appendix was printed in the first or second edition, and we have not seen a third edition, but when comparing the manuscript with that of the appendix published in the fourth edition there are minor, mainly editorial, differences. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our … [Click Below for Full Description]

LAURIE, Richard Holmes and WHITTLE, James
London,: Published by Jas. Whittle and Rd. Holmes Laurie, No.53, Fleet Street,, 1817. 12th May, 1817. Engraving with aquatint, original hand-colour. Caricature map of Asia, here represented as a wild boar, with a leaf (the Arabian Peninsula) in its mouth.Caricature maps featuring animals are highly uncommon, especially in the early part of the nineteenth century. Traditionally countries would be represented by people, as in the works of Gillray, and most notably Robert Dighton, whose droll caricatures of England, Ireland, and Scotland proved hugely popular in the late eighteenth century. Another unusual aspect of the map is the use of aquatint, a medium often reserved for views rather than maps, due to its tendency to obscure detail. Here it is used to great effect with the boar's coat rendered beautifully, superbly framed by great waves which crash along the southern and eastern coasts of Asia. The wild boar or pig was often seen as a symbol of wealth, abundance and good luck in many east Asian cultures including China and Japan. The Laurie and Whittle partnership was formed in the late eighteenth century by Robert Laurie (1755-1836) and James Whittle (1757-1818).Laurie was apprenticed to Robert Sayer in 1770 and made free in 1777. He was a skilled artist, who exhibited at the Society of Artists from 1770, winning a silver palette for a drawing in 1770, and he was also an accomplished engraver of mezzotint portraits and produced views and other decorative items. In about 1792 he returned to the Sayer business and took it over from the ailing Sayer in 1794.Whittle was appr … [Click Below for Full Description]

JENKINS, James.
London: printed for J. Jenkins, by L. Harrison, [after 1817]. London: printed for J. Jenkins, by L. Harrison,, [after 1817]. Folio (346 x 276 mm). Late nineteenth-century navy blue half morocco, decorative gilt spine, blue cloth sides, all edges gilt. Housed in a dark blue flat-back cloth box by the Chelsea Bindery. Engraved title page with hand-coloured vignette. 55 hand-coloured aquatint plates by Sutherland, Jeakes and Bailey after Whitcombe, 2 uncoloured etchings, plans of the Bombardment of Algiers and Battle of Trafalgar. A handsome copy. First edition, with later issue plates, of this magnificent publication, illustrating the high-water mark of Britain's maritime hegemony, and the apogee of the coloured aquatint. As Roger Quarm, curator of pictures at the National Maritime Museum remarked: "As a record of naval events spanning a period of over twenty years [it] has no precedent. At no time prior to 1817 had a publisher attempted such a complete volume of documentary naval prints. It is the quality of accuracy which makes Jenkins so valuable" (quoted in the introduction to the 1998 facsimile edition). It was disappointingly slow to sell on its first issue in 1817, and Jenkins chose to issue copies as demand necessitated. The text in this copy is preponderantly watermarked "J. Whatman 1811", the plates "J. Whatman 1825". The very earliest issues can be identified by the title-page vignette remaining uncoloured; otherwise, the key consideration for collectors is the quality of the colouring, which is extremely good in the present copy.

Mungo Park (1771-1806) was a Scottish explorer of West Africa. In 1785, Park was apprenticed to a surgeon in Selkirk, Scotland, and in 1788 entered Edinburgh University to study medicine. However, he took more interest in botany than medicine, and in 1792 went to London where he met Sir Joseph Banks, who arranged for him to go, in 1793, as surgeon's mate on an East India ship to Bencoolen, Sumatra, then under British rule; during his stay there he collected botanical specimens for Banks. Banks was a member of the African Association, founded in 1788 'for promoting the discovery of the inland parts' of Africa. In 1790 the association had sent Daniel Houghton, a retired army officer, to go up the Gambia River and make for Timbuktu, but he had died during the mission. On Park's return to London in 1794 Banks suggested him as a successor. He agreed, and the association appointed him, his instructions including 'to ascertain the course, and if possible, the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Rebacked, with gilt backstrip laid down, boards unevenly toned, minor shelf wear. Text lightly tanned. Very good. Untrimmed. First edition of this popular biography of Patrick Henry, reprinted many times. Wirt's biography was vitally important in developing the image of Henry as a "forest- born Demosthenes," and he gathered his information from a number of sources, "a combination of authentic facts, traditions, and old men's recollections" (DAB). The Henry family thought so well of Wirt's biography that one of Patrick Henry's grandsons was named "William Wirt Henry." Wirt is said to have worked on the manuscript for twelve years before it was finally published, the first of his productions to appear under his own name. The same year as publication, Wirt was appointed Attorney General of the United States by President Monroe. HOWES W586. SABIN 104882. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 42937.

Very slight wear. Bookplate of Julia Parker Wightman. A fine set. Handsome, lavish volumes printed by William Bulmer. His Shakespeare Press, in conjunction with the types of William Martin (a Baskerville disciple), is still renowned. In A History of the Old English Letter Founderies, Reed writes " A history of this celebrated Press would almost involve a history of fine printing in the first quarter of the present century. Dibdin, in the second volume of his Bibliographical Decameron has given a list of its most famous impressions. Bulmer was a personal friend of Thomas Bewick, the engraver, many of whose blocks were cut for his books. He spared no pains to render the typography of his press the most correct and beautiful England had hitherto known." Reed goes on to say The Decameron is one Bulmer's finest specimens.

Rebacked, with gilt backstrip laid down, boards unevenly toned, minor shelf wear. Text lightly tanned. Very good. Untrimmed. First edition of this popular biography of Patrick Henry, reprinted many times. Wirt's biography was vitally important in developing the image of Henry as a "forest- born Demosthenes," and he gathered his information from a number of sources, "a combination of authentic facts, traditions, and old men's recollections" (DAB). The Henry family thought so well of Wirt's biography that one of Patrick Henry's grandsons was named "William Wirt Henry." Wirt is said to have worked on the manuscript for twelve years before it was finally published, the first of his productions to appear under his own name. The same year as publication, Wirt was appointed Attorney General of the United States by President Monroe. HOWES W586. SABIN 104882. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 42937.

The arrangement of this orchestral work is by Beethoven himself. It was first published by Birchall in London in January of 1816. The Viennese edition by Steiner was published the following month. "Beethoven's 'Battle Symphony,' more correctly entitled Wellington's Victory of the Battle of Victoria (op. 91), came into being as the result of an idea by Maelzel that Beethoven should write a work for his latest invention, the panharmonicon, a sort of mechanical orchestra. The timing coincided with Wellington's defeat of Napoleon in 1813. It is a programmatic piece for a large orchestra with a battery of military and Turkish percussion instruments, including cannons and muskets. The first section opens with an English bugle call followed by the patriotic tune Rule, Britannia, answered by a French bugle call and marching tune, known in Britain as For he's a jolly good fellow. Then comes a depiction of the battle. Part 2, called 'Victory Symphony,' begins and ends with martial music but is … [Click Below for Full Description]

This journey they were led to extend far beyond the original design. Curiosity at first....carried them at length through several parts of the Levant, which have been little visited by modern travellers, and gave them more than four years of continued employment."
