The Federalist - 1817 - by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, & John Jay. This is the fourth edition of The Federalist (known today as The Federalist Papers). The fourth edition is the first to be printed in a single volume format and the first published outside of New York state. This copy is worn, but structurally sound. Some leather consolidate has been applied to the binding and the hinges have been strengthened. The pages are quite browned/foxed as usual with the edition. Still, a nice complete and readable copy of the important fourth edition. This copy comes with engravings of the three authors which were based on the New York edition of 1810. Please see the photographs.

THOMSON, John
Edinburgh: John Thomson, 1817. unbound. Map. Engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 19.25" x 23.25".This spectacular map of the East Indian Islands covers from the Andaman Islands and Burma or Myanmar eastward to New Guinea and from southern China and Taiwan (Formosa) south to Timor. Centered on Borneo, it includes the Malay Peninsula, Sumatra, Java, Bali, Borneo, the Celebes, and the Philippines. Singapore Island (Sincapoor) is also labeled. The Island of Krakatoa, located in the Sunda Strait between Java and Sumatra is also identified. This volcanic island was destroyed in 1883, following the famous volcanic eruption. The explosion is apparently the loudest sound ever heard. Thomson also notes the "doubtful" St. John's Island just east to the Philippine island of Mindanao. This fictitious island first appeared on maps in the late 16th century and many mariners even claimed to have visited them, mistaking it for some other island in the region. The island continued to appear on maps until about 1850. Thomson's earlier editions of this map also label the island, but do not include the word 'doubtful', signifying that he was also quite convinced of their existence for a while. The map is in good condition with minor wear along the original centerfold and plate mark visible. Minor spotting at places. John Thomson (1777 - 1837) was a Scottish bookseller and publisher active in the early 19th century, who was one of the leaders in Europe who favored detailed and accurate mapping over the decorative and elaborate cartouches that appeared in earlier maps.

Humbly Addressed to the Judges of His Majesty's Courts of Law and Both Houses of Parliament. London: Printed by B.R. Howlett, For Baldwin, Cradock, And Joy, 1817. xiv, 24 pp. Octavo (8" x 5").

A nice copy of a rare title. * First edition. Notable as an author of children's books, Kendall was also active as a social reformer. An Argument is a satirical essay on contemporary criminal procedure. It "argues" for the revival of the medieval practice of trial by battle, a judicially authorized duel in which a trial decided by personal combat between the plaintiff and the defendant. A second edition was published in 1817, a third in 1818. The first edition is rare. OCLC locates 3 copies, 2 in North America (Newberry Library, University of Minnesota Law School).

MOSES, HENRY.
H. Moses, 6, Upper-Thornhaugh-Street, Bedford -Square., London, 1817. FIRST EDITION, 8 pp. Bound in early half red morocco, over blue stiff card boards with original paper label; spine in compartments with gilt bands. Light foxing and water staining of plates confined to margins; otherwise a very good copy. 1864 signature on first free endpaper and 1903 gift inscription on front pastedown. Illustrated by folding plan of Ramsgate Harbour and 23 copper engraved plates by Henry Moses, each accompanied by descriptive letterpress page. Henry Moses (1782-1870) was a superb draughtsman who became the foremost engraver of his day. His 'picture' of Ramsgate was his first book and is his only strictly topographical work. It was printed just three years after the completion of Smeaton's new harbour. The delightfully detailed and crisp views of the buildings of the town, but more especially the harbour and its shipping, 'are distinguished for the purity and correctness of the drawing' (DNB). The animated streets with their carts and fashionable figures show the Georgian architecture at its best. It is without doubt the most charming of Kentish port guides. On the plan of the harbour is marked the exact spot and direction from which each view was drawn.

[Malory, Sir Thomas]; Southey, Robert, Esq. (Introduction and Notes); Upcott, William (Editor)
London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, Paternoster-Row, by Thomas Davison, Whitefriars, 1817. Limited Edition. Two volumes, quarto size, [984] pp. Sir Thomas Malory's (c. 1415-1471) most enduring and impactful work, originally titled "The Whole Book of King Arthur and his Noble Knights of the Round Table". Intended to retell in English the "entire" Arthurian story from reliable texts, it draws primarily on the three major cycles of French Arthurian prose romance, although Malory knew many Arthurian stories and applied them throughout for additional integrity. This edition was edited by English librarian William Upcott (1779-1845) after William Caxton's original edition of 1485, supplemented by a section from Wynkyn de Worde's edition of 1498. English poet Robert Southey (1774-1843) provided the scholarly introduction, which includes a history of chivalric romances, discusses the historic Arthur, provides notes on Malory's French sources, and "characterizes the action and values embodied in the story" (Nastali & Boardman). Nineteenth-century medievalism, notably the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, was greatly influenced by this edition of Malory's work, and it rose to new heights, especially after Dante Gabriel Rossetti claimed it as second only to the Bible; in fact, this edition of Malory was used as the basis for the version published in 1913 by the Ashendene Press. This copy has the attractive bookplate of noted collector and member of the Grolier Club, Mr. John William Roy Crawford. ___DESCRIPTION: Contemporaneous half dark-blue morocco, gilt rules and marbled paper … [Click Below for Full Description]

SLAVERY. ISAAC HOLT
1817. Manuscript Document Signed, Bill of Sale for "Wester" to Cape Fear Navigation Company, June 23, 1817. 2 pp., 8 x 14 in. Planter Isaac Holt sells a 22-year-old African American slave named Wester for $600 to the Cape Fear Navigation Company, and State Senator Archibald Murphey, a champion of internal improvements, witnesses the bill of sale. In 1815, the North Carolina legislature amended the charter of the Deep and Haw River Navigation Company to change the corporation's name to the Cape Fear Navigation Company. Its purpose was to "work Cape Fear River from Wilmington to Fayetteville" and "clear the river of logs and shoals" so that steamboats could navigate the 100 miles between Fayetteville in south-central North Carolina and Wilmington on the coast. Using slave labor, the company began construction of canals to bypass Smiley's Falls and Buckhorn Falls in Harnett County, north of Fayetteville. In 1818, the president of the company reported that 45 miles of the river had been cleared of snags.The Company regularly employed slave laborers both to dig canals and to make improvements in river navigation. Many tasks, including removing cypress stumps by underwater diving or building and repairing locks, required considerable skill. The company maintained a flotilla of barges, steamers, and a shanty boat for slave quarters and a workshop, which moved among worksites along the river. The Company also recruited free laborers, mainly Irish and Slavic immigrants from northern cities. Free labor, however, never really met the Company's need for labor.

AUSTEN. JANE.
Printed for T. Egerton, Military Library, Whitehall, London. 1817. THIRD EDITION. The first to be published in 2 Volumes. 12mo. (7.3 x 4.5 inches). -- Bound without half titles and terminal blank in volume one, as is often the case, otherwise complete. Collation: Volume I. Title page, (1) - 289 pages ('London, Printed by C. Roworth, Bell-Yard, Temple-bar', on verso of page 289). --- Volume II. Title page, (1) - 311 pages ('London, Printed by C. Roworth, Bell-Yard, Temple-bar', at the bottom of page 311 below Finis). Page 7 of volume one has a one inch tear to the margin, without loss and the fore edge of page 27 is a little frayed, well away from the printed area. Repair to the bottom corner (3 x 1.4 inches) of page 111, without loss. Slight lean to the boards and some foxing throughout but still generally a good, sound copy. Finely bound, to style, in mid twentieth century half brown polished calf. Spines ruled, lettered and decorated in gilt. Tan title labels, gilt. Marbled paper on boards. Plain off-white endpapers. An attractively bound copy. Pride and Prejudice, always the most popular of her titles with the general reader, was the only one of Jane Austen's novels to reach a third edition by its original publisher, though whether it did so during her lifetime is a moot point. She died on 18 July 1817 and the earliest recorded ownership signature on a copy of the third edition is dated 6 September of that year. ---- Keynes I5; Gilson A5x.

Original boards with orginal paper spines, most of which are, not surprisingly, gone given their fragility. In protective mylar wraps. Very Good condition overall: bindings degraded over time but completely unrestored and text in very nice shape. Clean pages-- no marks-- generally bright for age. Some foxing throughout text and typical waviness. Bumped corners. Not ex-library! Old London bookseller's stamp on front paste downs. Secodn volume front cover creased, missing small strip o paper. Third volume front board detached, the other covers are intact; the mylar wraps keep them all in place. Nice condition overall. A greatly revised and expanded edition of Malthus' most famous work, the second-to-last published during his lifetime. Contains revisions of his views on rent, a deeper look at how the political organization of states was determined by population and what limits to population growth were already occurring in Europe, and an appendix with replies to critics. An enormously influential (and controversial) work that inspired Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace. Very Good.

Housed in a custom grey cloth solander box. Slight wear to extremities, boards browned and soiled, a little loss to spine label, slight creasing and nicks to book block edges, inner hinges professionally reinforced with tissue, foxing and a couple of marks to contents; a very good copy. Large folding world map frontispiece, route marked in pink. First US edition of "one of the best of shipwreck narratives", containing the earliest printing of a Hawaiian vocabulary in America (Huntress). An uncommon work which is "remarkable for its descriptive accounts of the Northwest coast and Alaska, as well as Hawaii" (Severson). Campbell's "lengthy account of Hawaii in 1809-1810 is famous as the first description from the viewpoint of a resident rather than a visitor" (ibid.). Arriving on the Russian ship Neva on 27 January 1809 Campbell was resident there for more than a year before his departure on the Duke of Portland, an English whaler on 4 March 1810. Campbell "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). The first UK edition was published in Edinburgh in 1816 for the benefit of Campbell, who "on one of his shipwrecks had both his feet frozen which rendered amputation necessar … [Click Below for Full Description]

Contemporary full sheep trade binding, rebacked to style and upper outer corner of front board repaired with calf, original red morocco label laid down to spine, marbled endpapers. Housed in a custom beige cloth solander box. With the contemporary ownership inscription of Caleb Weaver Johnson. Slight wear to tips, a little loss to spine label lettering, a couple of scuffs to boards, small mark to top edge of book block, offsetting and creasing to contents, a very good copy. First edition of this uncommon narrative by a seaman. Patterson made a voyage to the north-west coast of America on the Juno of Bristol, under Captain John D'Wolf, and "was at that coast on several ships during 1805 to 1807" (Forbes). The work also "relates to the coast of Guinea, Havana, Guadeloupe, California, Australia, and Canton. Patterson made three voyages to the north-west coast, visiting the Queen Charlotte Islands and Nootka Sound on Vancouver Island" (Hill). The work includes an important account of Patterson's six months in Fiji after he was shipwrecked there in 1808. Huntress considers the narrative "one of the best 'mendicant' books, printed by poor wretches who then peddled them wherever they could for whatever they could get".

On the latter two of these voyages he made stops at the Hawaiian Islands, Forbes remarking "the narrative is of great importance for its text concerning Bligh and the Bounty and Pitcarin Island, part of which appears nowhere else".

London Printed for T. Egerton, 1817. Third edition; 2 volumes, 12mo, bound without half-titles and final blank to vol. I, as often when bound; slight spotting in places; later 19th-century half Russia with marbled sides, spine gilt in compartments, gilt morocco labels, edges speckled red; minimal rubbing, a little scuffing to lower boards, nonetheless a very good set; Vol. I: [2], 289, [1 (imprint)]pp; without half-title and final blank; vol. II: [2], 311, [1 (blank)]pp; without half-title; marginal paper-flaws to G4 and (very minor) K5-6. The third and last edition by Egerton following his printing of the first and second editions in 1813. No further editions would be published until 1832. Austen was not yet 20 when she drafted the novel, under the title First Impressions, between October 1796 and August 1797 at Steventon. It was declined by return of post by the publisher Cadell, and subsequently underwent major revisions. The title also had to be changed to Pride & Prejudice, as the Minerva Press published a novel entitled First Impressions by Margaret Holford in 1800. Finally, in late 1812, the novel was accepted by Egerton and published in early 1813 in boards in an edition of probably 1,500 copies (Keynes). The book sold well and was obviously much talked about, not least because of the unknown identity of the author. Anne Isabella Milbanke (the future Lady Byron) called it 'a very superior work' and 'the most probable fiction I have ever read'. Madame de Staël borrowed a copy during her stay in London in 1813. The dramatist Richard Sheridan described it as 'the cleve … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris: chez Delaunay; Londres: chez Colburn (London: de l'imprimerie de Schulze & Dean), 1817. Uncommon second edition - published in the same year as the first - of one of Stendhal's most enchanting books, full of music and other gossip. He recounts how he met Byron at the theatre in Venice 27 June 1817 'C'est une figure céleste; il est impossible d'avoir de plus beaux yeux. Ah! le joli homme de génie! Il a à peine vingt-huit ans, et c'est le premier poète de l'Angleterre et probablement du monde. Lorsqu'il écoute la musique, c'est une figure digne de l'idéal des Grecs.' (p. 261). Stendhal continues: 'For the rest, that a man should be a great poet, and further the head of one of the oldest families of England, that's too much for our century. Further I learned that the man's a bounder (scélerat). When he entered the drawing room of Madame de Stael at Copet [sic], all the English ladies left the room. This poor fellow, a genius, was unwise enough to marry; his wife is a sly woman, and she repeats at his expence the old story of Tom Jones and Blifil. Every man of genius is a fool, and further imprudent; this man has been blackguard enough to take up with an actress for two months. If he had been only a drunkard, people would scarcely have noticed as he was simply following the example of all rich young men; but people know that Mr Murray, the bookseller, who knows his worth (bon calculateur) giv … [Click Below for Full Description]

This was originally projected to be the second part of an intended two-volume project consisting of Biographia Literaria and Sibylline Leaves, printed by John Evans & Co. of Bristol in 1814-15 (hence the appearance of the register 'Vol. II' at intervals in the text). This project was abandoned and the sheets were acquired by Rest Fenner, who printed the preliminaries and issued the work, as here, in 1817. Ashley I, p.206; Tinker 697; Wise Coleridge, 45.

I've been lucky enough to find some amazing pieces and to enjoy them in my Victorian house. As I just moved to Florida, I find my library is just not large enough to handle what I have. I will be listing a number of high quality groupings. Description: This is a full set of four leather books entitled, "Works of Josephus" Translated by William Whiston Printed for W. Baynes et al in London Josephus recorded Jewish history, with special emphasis on the first century CE and the First Jewish-Roman War, including theSiege of Masada. His most important works were The Jewish War (c. 75) and Antiquities of the Jews (c. 94).[4] The Jewish Warrecounts the Jewish revolt against Roman occupation (66-70). Antiquities of the Jews recounts the history of the world from a Jewish perspective for an ostensibly Roman audience. These works provide valuable insight into first century Judaism and the background of Early Christianity.

Unless specifically noted otherwise, JSA LOA means an Auction Style LOA comes with the item. 1817 Drake, Nathan. Shakespeare and His Times. London 1817. Remarkable four-volume early 19th century work about William Shakespeare, notable as it came from the Roosevelt family in a public auction at Christies in 2001. The front free endpaper of Volume One, Part One has various notes in pencil detailing the contents of this four-volume set. These notes appear to have been written a very long time ago based on the handwriting. There is also some spotting on the first title page of Volume One, Part One. There is wear on some of the pages and the tips but the book overall is quite strong. Volume I, Part II is also nice but has some very minor interior staining in the beginning pages. All four volumes are bound in a beautiful vintage leather. There are over four hundred gorgeous vintage engravings and images within this mammoth work. This is not a Shakespearean folio but rather a comprehensive history of Shakespeares plays and Elizabethan era England. There is some wear by the binding by the extreme bottom tip of several spines but they still have brilliant original color. The wonderful assortment of engravings depict famous scenes from plays ranging from Hamlet to As You Like It to The Tempest.

Contemporary calf with morocco title label on the spine; contemporary printed paper number label at the base of the spine; joints and edges rubbed, but largely a well preserved binding. Title page and frontispiece are laid in from another copy of the first edition; it is tough to know at what point they were married, but the title page is from the first edition and the book itself is as well, with the errata page at the end as well as all the errors that were corrected for the subsequent edition in 1818. Modern bookplate on the front pastedown several owner names, one being David Creamer (Baltimore 1863). Creamer was Baltimore businessman and collector of hymnbooks--Drew University in New Jersey houses his collection that was donated in 1868--the largest and earliest American collection that is still together. He authored "Methodist Hymnology" (1848) the first American commentary on Wesleyan hymns. An interesting association. Lacking rear free endpaper; toning and foxing throughout the text. While historians have taken issue … [Click Below for Full Description]

1817. OZERAY (Michel-Jean-François). Recherches sur Buddou ou Bouddou, instituteur religieux de l'Asie orientale. Précédes de considérations générales sur les premiers hommages rendus au Créateur; sur la corruption de la religion, l'établissement des cultes du soleil, de la lune, des planètes, du ciel, de la terre, des montagnes, des eaux, des forêts, des hommes et des animaux. A Paris, chez Brunot-Labbe (1817). 1 volume in-8, xxxij pp. +137 pp. + (3) ff., broché, couverture rose avec étiquette dans le dos. Dos fragile, plats partiellement détachés, haut de la page de faux-titre déchiré (où se trouvait possiblement un envoi de l'auteur et dont il reste écrit le nom de l'auteur). Rousseurs et brunissures. Sinon intérieur en bon état. Les deux derniers feuillets contiennent la copie d'une lettre de Rémusat adressée à Ozeray et datée de 1922 qui semble avoir été ajoutée et collée au second plat de la couverture. Le premier livre occidental sur le bouddhisme et bouddha. C'est dans les Recherches sur Buddou ou Bouddou qu'apparaît le terme de « bouddhisme » en occident. Ce terme est une invention européenne : les Asiatiques parlent du dharma ou dhamma pour qualifier les enseignements et la loi du Bouddha. Très rare première édition. Source: Quérard. La France Litteraire ou Dictionnaire Bibliographique, VI, 538.
