GODWIN, William.
Edinburgh: printed for Archibald Constable & Co. & Longman, London. 1817. FIRST EDITION. 3 vols. 12mo. Half titles. Untrimmed in sl. later half olive green morocco, marbled paper boards, spine ruled & dec. in gilt, red morocco labels. Armorial bookplate of the Askew family, initialled 'W.A.' on leading pastedowns. A v.g. handsome copy. Not in Sadleir; Wolff 2588. A scathing review of Mandeville records it as 'the dullest of all Godwin's novels'. 'It has little incident, scarcely any plot, no catastrophe. . The few actors who are brought near to us are little else than personifications of distempered passions; the extravagant ravings of which the author has adorned with a most gorgeous robe of verbosity.' Set during the English Civil War, Mandeville, a novel that took Godwin over eight years to complete, is a study of madness, telling the story of Charles Mandeville who is locked up in a lunatic asylum before being nursed back to health by his sister. This copy belonged to a member of the Askew family of Pallinsburn House, Northumberland. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The history of Java.London, for Black, Parbury, Allen and Murray, 1817. 2 volumes. Large 4to (ca. 27 x 21 cm). With a large folding engraved map of Java (110 x 44 cm) by J. Walker, coloured by hand in outline, and 66 full-page, mostly soft-ground or line etched aquatint plates (including 10 fine hand-coloured aquatint costume plates by William Daniell), some (folding) tables and 9 half-page engraved views in the text. Contemporary tanned sheepskin, richly gold-tooled spine, gilt border on covers. XLVIII, 479, [1 blank]; VIII, 292, CCLX, [4] pp. Excellent wove paper copy (1 of 250) of the first edition of this richly illustrated classic on the history of Java by Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles (1781-1826). He was Lieutenant Governor of Java during the British administration of the Dutch colonies from 1811 to 1816, following the blockade of the coasts of Europe by Napoleon's "continental system". Raffles worked on the present history of Java during his time there, and more seriously in 1815 when he knew his stay was coming to an end. Back in England in 1816, publication of the work was delayed because the illustrations needed to be finished. It was finally published in 1817 on wove (250 copies) and on ordinary paper (650 copies).The aquatints and etchings for the wove paper copies were printed first and are in the best state. Our copy is one of these on wove paper, with the watermark "W. Balston & Co., 1815" . Noteworthy is that the ordinary paper copies have different watermarks, described in Abbey: one dated 1817 for the text and another one dated 1816 from J.

PAINE, Thomas (1737-1809)
Fleet Street, London [all Sherwin], 1817. [Political Philosophy] A collection of eleven works and pamphlets, all early editions, published separately and bound in contemporary boards (23 x 15cm). Includes the following major works from the English-born American revolutionary; The Rights of Man (and Part The Second), Agrarian Justice (Minimum Income), On The Invasion of England (by France) and A Letter To George Washington. Contents untrimmed, occasional scholarly pencil marginalia, ink name 'John Lascelles' dated 1872. 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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

David Hume
printed for Thomas and Joseph Allman, London, 1817. 'A New edition'. 2 vols. Contemporary full sprinkled calf, professionally rebacked with old spines laid down, these only partials but still with much of gilt detail and original red leather labels, boards a little rubbed, contents clean and pleasing throughout, Vol I: Understanding-Passions; Vol II: Passions-Morals, with the small ex libris label of Doctor [Robert] Batty (1763-1849), a physician of some note and 'Fairlight' [Lodge] his residence in Hastings. Both volumes also contain the neat ink ownership of 'Stephen Ward' - a slim possibility this is the Stephen Ward of Profumo Affair fame, however comparisons with signatures on his portraits are not altogether favourable. A nice set. Hume's 'Treatise of Human Nature' was his first and arguably most important work, with an untold contribution to the history of philosophy. Earlier editions of this work are very scarce. iv-426, [2]; iv, 368pp. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

[4], 400; [4], 423 [1 blank]; [4], 399, [1 blank]; [4], 451, [1 blank] pp.Rare, beautifully illustrated edition of Arago's account of the voyage of l'Uranie, under command of Louis Freycinet (1817-1820). The voyage was organized by the French government, under the restored Royalty, to show the flag around the world and to make scientific observations on geography, magnetism and meteorology. Arago was attached to the expedition as official artist, and first published a narrative of the voyage as Promenade autour du monde. The Souvenirs is a more elaborate work, augmented with many new illustrations. The present "richly illustrated edition of the Souvenirs is much prized" (Hill), and the third volume is almost entirely devoted to Hawaii.Occasionally slightly foxed, large stain on last leaves of the second volume, otherwise in very good condition.l Forbes 1134; Hill 30; cf.

44, 318, [4] pp.First and only edition of the Dutch translation of a journal of a journey through North America and southern Canada by John Palmer, illustrated with an engraved map of North America, hand-coloured in outline. The extensive introduction gives a short statistical survey of North America. On 28 March 1817 Palmer set sail from Liverpool bound for the United States, together with William Cobbett. He visited New York, Washington, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Tennessee, Ohio, Kentucky, Virginia, Indiana, Missouri, Quebec and more. The journal is of special interest for the contemporary prices of land and provisions, the observations on the country and the people, and the descriptions of the trade and commerce of the principal towns. "Mr. Palmer travelled through ... the greater part of the country he describes; but he confesses that the outlines of his travels were filled up from other books. A plain man of good sense and slow judgment" (Sabin).With a note from the manager of the publishing house (heirs of François Bohn) on title-page, explicitly declaring (probably for a tax-acknowledgement) in the lower margin in brown ink that the book was printed in Bohn's own printing house at Bohn's own expense, signed: P.C. van Olpen, Haarlem, 25 October 1820. Some occasional foxing, otherwise in very good condition. Binding rubbed along the extremities, but otherwise good.l Clark, Old South II, 227; Howes P49; Sabin 58362.

SAVIGNY, J.B.H. & Alexander CORRÉARD.
[8], 168 pp.First and only edition of the Dutch translation of an eye-witness account of the disaster that befell the frigate Méduse one of the most infamous shipwrecks of the age of sailing ships. It was also one of the worst examples of leadership in history, where panic drove out every vestige of common sense. Two survivors, J.B.H. Savgny, a surgeon, and Alexander Corréard, a naval officer, wrote a widely read book about the incident, and the episode was immortalized when Théodore Géricault painted “Le radeau de la Méduse” (The raft of the Medusa), which became an iconic artwork of French Romanticism.The incident quickly became a scandal in French politics and Bourbon officials tried to cover it up. Captain Chaumareys was tried and found guilty of incompetent and complacent navigation and of abandoning the Méduse before all her passengers had been taken off. J.B.H. Savigny and another survivor, the geographer-engineer Alexandre Corréard, subsequently wrote a book with their present account of the incident, first published in French 1817 as Naufrage de la frégate la Méduse. It went through five editions by 1821 and was also published with success in English, German, Dutch and Italian translations.After the story of the shipwreck the account continues with the description of the circumstances in the Sahara desert, St. Louis and the army camp near Daccard, followed by a review of agricultural reports from the western part of the coast of Africa, from Cap-Blanc to the mouth of the Gambia.Head of spine slightly rubbed, restorations in some pages, otherwise in good condition.l … [Click Below for Full Description]

CASEMBROOT, François de.
VIII, 136 pp.Second edition of an account of the battle that nearly ended the voyage of the Dutch corvette Medusa on its way to Yokohama, written by the commander of the ship François de Casembroot (1817-1895), captain-lieutenant in the Royal Dutch Navy. On 11 July 1863, the Medusa was attacked by the ships and batteries of the daimyô of Chôshû, Mori Takachika, as she passed through the straits of Shimonoseki at the entrance to the Inland Sea. The daimyô opposed the official policy of the shogunate to welcome foreigners in Japan and attacked the Dutch ship. Although the crew bravely fought back, Medusa was struck 20 times and four members of the crew were killed. The incident lead to the so-called Shimonoseki Campaign in which Dutch, French, British and American ships retaliated and secured a safe passage for foreign ships through this important stretch of water. Included at the end are several appendices, including an list of the entire crew of the Medusa, letters, extracts from the ship's log, and more. Slightly browned with a few stains. Front wrapper detached. Otherwise in good condition.l Tiele 234; Cordier, Japonica, p. 579; cf. Cat. NHSM, p. 480 (first edition).

BURCKHARDT, Johann Ludwig.
VII, [1], 232 pp.First edition of a ground-breaking trove of 782 Arabic proverbs, published here in the original Arabic with English translations and (sometimes extensive) explanations of their meaning. Burckhardt took some from a collection assembled by the Egyptian scholar Shered ad-Din Ibn Assad, adding others "as he heard them quoted in general society or in the bázár ... Several Scriptural sayings and maxims of ancient sages will be found here naturalized among Arabs; as well as some Proverbs which have generally been supposed of European origin" (preface). This makes the present publication an essential primary source for Islamic, Egyptian and Arabic oral history, preserving popular proverbs collected before 1817. The Swiss explorer, orientalist and archaeologist Burckhardt (1784-1817) travelled through Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Nubia and the Arabian Peninsula, and rediscovered the ancient city of Petra. Disguised as an Arab, he crossed the Red Sea to Jeddah under the name "Sheikh Ibrahim", passed an examination in Muslim law and participated in a pilgrimage to Mecca and Medina. With bookplate. Endpapers browned, slightly affecting the title-page, last page and folding map, but otherwise in very good condition. Binding somewhat worn and scuffed, but structurally sound. An expert Arabist's annotated collection of Arabic sayings, giving insights into Arabic culture.l Gay 1963; Howgego, 1800-1850, B76.

(illustrated title depicting General Wellington leading his troops into battle), [1] (advertisement), 2-29, [1] (blank) pp. Engraved. Publisher's advertisement ("Pränumerations-Anzeige") to page 1 soliciting subscriptions to first editions of Beethoven's symphonies no. 7 and 8 and announcing full scores, parts, and various arrangements. Outer leaves somewhat foxed and browned; minor internal browning. First Viennese edition, second issue. LvBWV v.1, p. 583. Hoboken 2, 391 (first issue). Hirsch IV, 344. 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]

Reliure pleine basane noisette racinée d'époque, dos lisses profusément ornés, pièces de tomaison et de titre respectivement en maroquin bordeaux et havane, toutes tranches marbrées. Reliures en très bon état ; quelques défauts d'usage aux coiffes, mors et coins ont été professionnellement restaurés. Corps d'ouvrage sans défauts. Tout ou presque a été déjà dit sur Rousseau rappelons que les « Confessions » n'ont été publiées qu'après sa mort et qu'elles ont causé surprise et consternation dans les milieux littéraires et philosophiques. Il s'y annonce comme un misanthrope amer, qui se présente audacieusement sur les ruines du monde, pour déclarer au genre humain, qu'il suppose rassemblé sur ces ruines, que dans cette foule innombrable, aucun d'eux n'oserait dire : « Je fus meilleur que cet homme-là ». Cette affectation de se voir seul dans l'univers n est pas le seul reproche qu on lui ait fait, car ses contemporains ont vu avec douleur que sous prétexte d'être sincère, il déshonora la mémoire de Mme de Warens, sa bienfaitrice, et s'attaqua sans ménagements aux gens de lettres, quoique parmi eux quelques uns l'eussent aimé et que plusieurs l'eussent servi. Cela fit dire à madame de Bourdie que Rousseau aurait eu une plus grande réputation de vertu « s'il était mort sans confession ». Après avoir été « l'évangile de la révolution française », ses oeuvres nous apparaissent, avec leur style impétueux et … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.
