        Paramaribo - Dieterich naar Beranger, 1817.

      DE WATERKANT TE PARAMARIBO"Paramaribo aan de Rivier van Suriname"'. Aquatint gegraveerd door F. Dieterich naar het ontwerp van Pierre Beranger "gewezen Comissaris generaal en Gouverneur der Colonie Suriname"', uitgegeven door Maaskamp te Amsterdam in 1817. In de tijd met hand gekleurd. Afm. (afbeelding): 37,7 x 55,7 cm.De Waterkant van Paramaribo was wat reizigers het eerste zagen. Hier legden de schepen uit Europa en Amerika aan en kwamen de bewoners van de plantages aan wal. Het economische leven van de stad speelde zich er lange tijd af. Al vanaf het eerste begin was er een markt waar goederen en slaven werden verhandeld, er staan koopmanshuizen, goederenmagazijnen en er waren havenkroegen. Veel plantage eigenaren hadden in de 18e eeuw hun plantage verlaten om in de luxe van de stad te komen wonen. De Joden kwamen naar de stad om er handel te drijven. Ook veel vrijgelaten slaven kwamen naar de stad omdat zij een perceel gekregen hadden in ruil voor het opsporen van weggelopen slaven.Dit aangezicht van de stad met in de voorgrond zeilschepen onder Engelse, Amerikaanse en Nederlandse vlag, is uitgegeven na het Congres van Wenen (1814-1815) waar werd afgesproken dat Nederland zijn kolonie Suriname van Engeland terug kreeg. Het bestuur van Suriname kwam in 1816 daarmee in handen van koning Willem I (aan wie de prent is opgedragen). De koning bestuurde de koloniën door middel van Koninklijke Besluiten, waarmee een einde kwam aan de autonomie van de kolonisten in Suriname.Het beeld van de stad moet stammen uit de periode 1804-1805 toen Pierre Béranger er Gouverneur was.Prijs: € 4.250,- (incl. 21% BTW, incl. lijst).

Dibdin destroyed the plates for the book at a meeting of the Roxburgh Club. "This work forms one of the monuments of typographical bibliography.

It is perhaps the most lavish of all Dibdin's works" (Jackson). Hart 186: "A bibliographer's classic that marks the beginning of the general recognition of bibliomania as a plaything for wealth."

        JOURNAL OF THE HOUSE OF ASSEMBLY, LOWER-CANADA.

      Quebec. 1793-1817. - Twenty-four volumes. Later brown cloth, red and black gilt morocco labels. Printed in alternating English and French. Slight wear to and moderate soiling on covers. Occasional foxing. First view leaves of first volume torn along lower blank margin. Occasional old institutional markings. Overall very good. A large and impressive archive of Canadian laws. In an effort to pacify the disparate French and British populations of Canada, the Constitutional Act of 1791 divided Canada in two. Upper Canada was primarily populated by Loyalist emigrants of the American Revolution, while the citizenry of Lower Canada, which included Quebec, was mostly of French descent. These are the laws of Lower Canada, printed in English and French. Though the first volume appeared in 1793, it includes material from the first session of the first Parliament, held in December 1792. The series continued till 1836. "Public accounts are included in the early numbers of the Journals, and from 1809 to 1835-36 Sessional papers are published as appendices to the Journals" - TPL. Present here is a complete run from its inception to 1813, with an additional volume for 1817. The twenty-third, twenty- fourth, and twenty fifth volumes are lacking. Scarce. OCLC locates only six complete runs. A prime resource for the study of Canadian legal history. TPL 640. SABIN 10491. OCLC 11820245, 48957532. TRÉMAINE 835.

        Biographia Literaria; or Biographical Sketches of My Literary Life and Opinions.

      London: Rest Fenner, 1817 - 2 volumes, octavo (210 × 128 mm). Later 19th-century ochre half morocco by J. B. Hawes of Cambridge, spines in compartments with raised bands and gilt titles and fleurons, marbled sides, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Spines very slightly tanned, tiny nicks to corners, some light spots to the leather of volume one, occasional spotting within, very good condition indeed. Half titles in both volumes and 3 pages of publisher's advertisements at the rear of volume two. First edition, with the half titles and advertisements, notably untrimmed in a signed later 19th-century binding, of Coleridge's autobiography, a monument to the Romantic movement and Coleridge's role in it, in which literary criticism and philosophy are inextricable from biography. In Biographica Literary, which is utterly characteristic of him in its fragmentary and digressive form, Coleridge recounts his friendship with Southey and Wordsworth, describes the important influences on his personal philosophical development (and, it should be inferred, through him to the the rest of the English Romantic scene) of early German philosophers such as Kant, Fichte and Schelling, while offering searching criticisms of Wordsworth's poems and making his famous distinction between 'fancy' and 'imagination', expressing the difference between a mechanical making and a creative artistic power linked to the divine. The second volume includes a detailed criticism of the social theory of the preface to Lyrical Ballads, to which he himself had contributed. This copy is from the library (though without ownership mark) of Scottish publisher Alexander Macmillan (1818-1896), founder, with his older brother Daniel, of Macmillan & Co - J. B. Hawes were one of the Cambridge binderies used by Macmillan. Wise 40. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Essai sur l'instruction des aveugles, ou exposé analytique des procédés employés pour les instruire

      1817 - d'1 frontipisce, (224) pages Paris [Imprimé par les aveugles], 1817, in-8, d'1 frontipisce, (224) pages et 21 planches, plein papier à la bradel dans le goût du temps, dos lisse portant une pièce de titre, Première édition. Exemplaire portant un envoi de l'auteur raturé à "Monsieur G[?], hommage de l'auteur". Sébastien Guillié (1780-1865) était médecin en chef de l'Institut des aveugles-nés, à l'Hôpital des Quinze-Vingts. Il fonda une clinique pour les maladies des yeux à Paris en 1818. Se présentant comme un digne successeur de Haüy, un des premiers à s'intéresser au devenir socio-culturel des aveugles et qui fonda à Paris la première école pour aveugles, devenue depuis l'Institut national des jeunes aveugles ; Guillié propose dans cet ouvrage une méthode d'apprentissage par le toucher, "la langue naturelle des aveugles" (p14) afin de rétablir leur légitimité dans un monde de voyants. "Guillié established the first ophthalmological clinic in France and became director of the Institution Royale des Jeunes Aveugles in Paris. The Institution, founded by Haüy in 1785, was the first such school for the blind in the world. The author chronicles the philanthropic deeds directed toward the blind up to that time and describes the first attempts at special graphic methods for the use of the blind. Of particular interest is the account of his methods of instructing the blind in various crafts. The plates show blind craftsmen engaged in a variety of skilled occupations. Guillié endeavored to understand and encourage the communication which he observed between blind and deaf-mute children at the time when the two institutions were united." (Becker, pp.170-177) Correction du texte p.97, probablement par l'auteur lui-même. Edition qui comprend un frontispice et 21 pl. h.t. lithographiées en noir et blanc fig. dans le texte, représentant les aveugles dans leurs occupations. Restauration de papier, sans manque, au faux titre et la planche n°15 ainsi que quelques rousseurs. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [A Catalogue Of The Library Of An Eminent Bibliographer.

      ] 8vo. London: Printed by W. Bulmer and Co. Cleveland-Row St. James’s, 1817.] 8vo, 18 leaves, (-2) [1] 2-35 (1) (=36 of 38p, lacking the title.). Stitched as issued, in a morocco pull-off box lettered in gilt. A bit worn around the edges, untrimmed. Sole edition. This is the Pirie copy of the ‘b’ issue, partially priced. The ‘a’ issue, of which only 24 were printed has the heading Bibliotheca Rosicrusiana. The heading refers to one of the pseudonyms used by Dibdin in his Bibliomania. and has no occult significance. Both the Harvard University (Dawson Turner) copy and the Grolier Club copy are inscribed ‘Only 24 copies with this head-title. T.F.D.’ The former lacks the slip with lot 770. The number of ‘b’ issue copies, without the heading but otherwise identical, is not known. 770 lots are described; the final lot was printed on a paper slip and pasted into some copies but not this one (the Barlow copy has several additional lots written in, including two at the end.) The Grolier Club ‘a’ issue copy was sent by Dibdin to Thomas Sharpe Esq. of Coventry; no prices are recorded but Sharpe did mark lot 739, the Caxton. The Grolier Club ‘b’ issue copy is priced. Jackson (p. 34) writes: ‘The Harvard (Hunnewell) copy … is interleaved with prices and buyers’ names and notes of a score or more books sold but not included in the printed catalogue.’ The Harvard, Rylands, Corser (at Cambridge University), and Barlow copies (all with manuscript addenda) suggest that the auction house added lots up to the last minute and wrote these into catalogues as possible. (A second copy at the Rylands, purchased from Sotheran at the beginning of the century was unavailable for examination.) For a reproduction of the Bodleian copy together with the auctioneer’s notes from the one in the British Library, see A.N.L. Munby, “Dibdin’s Reference Library: the sale of 26-28 June 1817,” Studies in the Book Trade in Honour of Graham Pollard (Oxford Bibliographical Society, 1975), pp.279-314.

        [Letter acknowledging payment from the Paris bookseller Debure for Les Roses , part 30]. Paris, 18 February 1824. 4to (24.5 x 18.5 cm). Autograph letter, signed, written in brown ink on paper, with a note in a different hand recording a related payment.

      A signed autograph letter by Pierre-Joseph Redouté, acknowledging his reciept of 30 francs from "Monsieur Debure libraire" for the 30th and final part of Les Roses, Redouté's most famous work, which was published in installments between 1817 and 1824. This must be the Paris bookseller Jean-Jacques Debure (1765-1853) or his younger brother Marie-Jacques Debure (1767-1847), who were "libraires du Roi et de la Bibliotheque du Roi" from 1821 to 1830. The book was printed and published by Firmin Didot. Oddly, an addition by a different hand below left notes "payé le 26 fevrier" (paid 26 February). Perhaps Redouté is writing to Firmin Didot and he was to reimburse Debure for this expense. It in any case suggests that Debure is not merely buying copies of the book to sell but was involved in the publication of Redouté's Les Roses in some manner. In fine condition, with only a small piece of paper stuck to the top right corner, not approaching the text.

Erste Ausgabe (Goedeke I, S.308 und VI,205,24). – Gelegentlich etwas stockfleckig. Handschriftl. Name a.d. Vorsatz „A.Reichensperger“, d.i. AUGUST REICHENSPERGER (Koblenz 1808 – 1895 Köln), Jurist und kath. Politiker, 1848 Abgeordneter der Frankfurter Nationalversammlung, 1850 Mitglied des preußischen Abgeordnetenhauses, wo er die Interessen des katholischen Rheinlands gegen Preußen vertrat. In seinen politischen Ansichten war REICHENSPERGER entscheidend von GÖRRES geprägt, „dessen Einfluß er völlig verfiel . Nicht der große Vorkämpfer für Deutschlands Befreiung und Verfassung, der im innigen Verein mit Männern jeder Glaubensrichtung im Rheinischen Merkur den Großen der Erde in das Gewissen redete, daß sie des Volkes Ehre und Wohl nicht preisgeben sollten den kleinlichen Interessen und den ängstlichen Sorgen des Tages, sondern der seit der Aufhebung des Merkur und vollends seit den Karlsbader Beschlüssen in seinem Vertrauen und seiner Liebe zu Preußen getäuschte und verbitterte GÖRRES der späteren Zeit war das Vorbild und der Lehrer von REICHENSPERGER. Und REICHENSPERGER stand diesem gewaltigen Autor kritiklos gegenüber. Er war ergriffen von der Tiefe dieses Geistes .“ (ADB 53, S.277f.). REICHENSPERGER gilt heute auch als die Hauptfigur der deutschen Neugotik, die er literarisch und praktisch förderte. Wie auch GÖRRES zählte er 1842 zu den Gründungsmitgliedern des Kölner Dombau-Vereins. (s.a. No.1896 und No.1897). Nach dem Verbot des Rheinischen Merkur 1816 und vor der dem Schritt zu offener Opposition gegen die Karlsbader Beschlüsse 1818/9 und daraus resultierendem Exil und schließlicher Hinwendung zum Katholizismus ist die vorliegende Sammlung ein letztes Zeugnis von GÖRRES‘ romantischphilologischen Arbeiten, die ihren Anfang 1807 in Die teutschen Volksbücher hatten.

This late issue of which only a small number were made is probably the most beautifully coloured issue of one of the most attractive huntingbooks ever published. The first edition was published 1578 by P. Galle in Antwerp. "Stradanus, or as he was originally named Jan van der Straat (1523-1605), was born in Bruges, but did most of his work in Italy. He was principally a designer of cartoons for tapestries, and there are very few of his pictures in existence. From 1553-1571 he was employed by the Duke Cosimo de' Medici in Florence, who commissioned him to make a number of designs for tapestries, representing fowling, fishing and hunting scenes, for the adornment of twenty rooms in the Palace of Reggio-a-Cajano. The present set of 'Venationes' was engraved from these beautiful and original compositions" (Schwerdt II, p. 228). The fine plates were engraved by I. Collaert, Cornelius Galle and others. "After pl. 102 is included 'Vermis Sericus', a series including an engraved frontispiece containing 4 vignettes illustrating the development of the silkworm from the month of May to August, and 5 other plates"(Schwerdt). The colouring of this copy is outstanding. On the verso of a few plates small paper restoration at the lower margin. A fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A NARRATIVE OF OCCURRENCES IN THE INDIAN COUNTRIES OF NORTH AMERICA, SINCE THE CONNEXION OF THE RIGHT HON. THE EARL OF SELKIRK WITH THE HUDSON'S BAY COMPANY, AND HIS ATTEMPT TO ESTABLISH A COLONY ON THE RED RIVER...

      London, 1817. Original printed wrappers. Minor soiling, small repairs on spine, ink signature on front cover. Contemporary ownership signature on titlepage. Very good. Untrimmed. In a red cloth clamshell box, spine gilt. The Harmsworth-Streeter copy of this rare and important work of Canadiana. This pamphlet presents a brief outline of the establishment and growth of the Selkirk Colony from 1812, and attempts to defend and justify the North West Company's actions as the natural consequence of the encroachments, hostilities, and provocations of Lord Selkirk and the Hudson's Bay Company. Although sometimes attributed to Simon McGillivary and Edward Ellice the elder, the work was probably prepared by Samuel Hull Wilcocke, "a hack-writer in the employ of the North-West Company" (TPL). The pamphlet was issued under the direction of the London representatives of the North West Company to counter charges of unwarranted aggression and destruction of the Selkirk settlement on the Red River, leveled against them by John Halkett in his STATEMENT RESPECTING THE EARL OF SELKIRK'S SETTLEMENT (1817). "This narrative is the second of that long catalogue of statements, histories, and narratives to which the murder of Governor Semple by the half-breed Indians, in the service of the Northwest Fur Company, gave existence. The first publication was the 'Sketch of the Fur Trade in North America,' by the benevolent and enterprising Lord Selkirk. This narrative is the rejoinder of the Northwest Fur Company, covering pp. 1 to 152. The Appendix which follows, paged separately 1 to 87, is composed of affidavits of the traders, of Indian speeches, etc" - Field.

        Cock Shooting [and] Pheasant Shooting. [A pair of sporting prints]

      London, 1817. Aquatints, coloured by hand, by T. Sutherland. (First print with skillfully repaired tear). Sheet sizes: 14 7/8 x 18 1/8 inches and 15 x 18 1/4 inches. A lovely pair of sporting prints Henry Thomas Alken was born into what became an artistic dynasty. He studied under the miniature painter J.T. Barber and exhibited his first picture (a miniature portrait) at the Royal Academy when he was sixteen. From about 1816 onwards he "produced an unending stream of paintings, drawings and engravings of every type of field and other sporting activity. He is best remembered for his hunting prints, many of which he engraved himself until the late 1830s ... To many, sporting art is 'Alken', and to describe his work or ability is quite unnecessary" (Charles Lane British Racing Prints pp.75-76). Siltzer, p. 57; Snelgrove Alken 46.
