Armorial bookplates of the Condes de Bomfim; letterpress shelf location tags in upper outer corner of front pastedown endleaves. 2 volumes. ---- FIRST EDITION of this classic work, a vital source for the state of Brazil on the eve of independence. It contains the first printing of the eyewitness account of the discovery of Brazil by Pero Vaz de Caminha, Cabral's secretary. The alphabetical index at the end of each volume includes many Indian words.Ayres do Casal's work became widely known in Europe after James Henderson adapted (and at times merely translated) parts of it in his @History of the Brazil, London 1821 (cf. Borba de Moraes [1983] II, 398).Ayres do Casal has been called the "Father of Brazilian geography." A native of Portugal (b. ca. 1754?), he spent some years in Brazil, returning to Portugal around 1821 and dying soon thereafter. A second edition of the @Corografia appeared in Rio de Janeiro, 1833 amd a third at Rio, 1845. A facsimile was printed by the Instituto Nacional do Livro, 1945-1947.@Provenance: Armorial bookplate ("Condes do Bomfim" appears beneath the arms); see Avelar Duarte, @Ex-libris portugueses heráldicos p. 275 (nº 770). The first Conde, José Lucio Travassos Valdez (1787-1862), served in the Peninsular Wars and was in charge of putting down both the rebellion under the Conde de Amarante in 1823 and the Miguelist insurrection in Tras-os-Montes a few years later. He was governor of Madeira and served with Costa Cabral and Rodrigo da Fonseca on the Conselho. When the Maria da Fonte movement broke out he was named commander of the government forces in the south, but having been captured in late 1846 by the Duque de Saldanha, was deported along with his two eldest sons to Angola for the duration of the war. Travassos Valdez's oldest son, José Bento Travassos Valdez, succeeded to the title. The third Conde, José Lucio Travassos Valdez (1841-1926) had been born in Luanda.---- Innocêncio V, 367-8; XVI, 124-5. Sacramento Blake VI, 33. Valle Cabral 464, with lengthy note.

        Picturesque Rides and Walks, with Excursions by Water, thirty miles round the British Metropolis.,

      J. Hassell, London 1817 - Two leather bound volumes with spines in 6 compartments, red labels, gilt titles. As so often happens with early 19th century books the collation of these two volumes matches neither the 'directions for placing the cuts' as found at the end of each volume nor the collation as given in the reference. Numerous plates are bound in locations other than indicated, four listed in Tooley (Epsom, Holland House, Melrose Hall and Guildford) are missing and one (Holland House Crouch) which is not listed in Tooley, but is in the directions to the binder is present. It appears that the intent was that the two volumes were each to have 60 plates. Volume One of this set contains 62 plates and volume Two has 55. Having looked carefully at the two volumes it seems possible that the 'missing' plates were not ever present. A lovely set with charming little plates. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        GROUPS OF FLOWERS, DRAWN AND ACCURATELY COLOURED AFTER NATURE, WITH FULL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE YOUNG ARTIST

      London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, 1817. FIRST EDITION n. Hardcover. 343 x 267 mm (13 1/2 x 10 1/2"). [26] leaves of text, including 3 pp. of ads. FIRST EDITION. STRIKING RED STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, GILT IN AN UNUSUAL DESIGN, covers framed by decorative gilt rules and cresting roll, large central lozenge formed by two very elaborately gilt- and blind-tooled triangular "curtains," the wide bases of which meet at the center of each board, a large gilt butterfly at the peak of each triangle (seeming to pull the curtains upward and downward toward the top and bottom edge of the covers), flat spine gilt in densely tooled panels, gilt titling, gilt chain roll on turn-ins, all edges gilt. With 11 (of 12) excellent engravings of flowers in two states, colored and uncolored. (Without the color plate of the Moss Rose.) For the binding: Nixon "Broxbourne Library," pp. 210-11. Joints and extremities a little rubbed, two small abrasions to boards, spine uniformly darkened, a touch of faint yellowing to uncolored plates, a couple of marginal smudges, but still a very appealing example in mostly excellent condition, the binding with lustrous covers, and the text fresh and smooth. This unusual binding would appear to be a rare example of an English design based on a Spanish style called "cortina," or "curtain." According to Nixon, cortina bindings were popular in Spain during the reign of Ferdinand VII (1784-1833), between about 1810 and 1830. This design was "probably the invention of Antonio Suàrez, the most brilliant Spanish binder of the period, who worked successively in Barcelona, Valencia, and Madrid." The key feature of the style was a fan-like "curtain" which emanates from a corner or side. While Nixon considered it an exclusively Spanish motif, the British Library Database of Bookbindings notes that some English binders took up the style. Our unknown binder chose the unconventional approach of attaching the "curtains" to butterfly ornaments, rather than to a corner or side. The two triangles meet at the base, mirroring each other in a most pleasing effect. The last cortina binding we know of to appear on the market (and the only one we found using "cortina" as the key word) was a Spanish binding of early 19th century goatskin covering the Johannes de Reno "Mirabilia Romae" of 1475, offered at the 30 November 2011 Sotheby's sale with an estimate of £15,000-20,000 (though unsold).

        On the Principles of Political Economy, and Taxation

      London: John Murray,, 1817. Octavo (218 × 134 mm). Nineteenth-century polished calf, double gilt-rule border to covers, brown morocco label, raised bands with gilt rules and decoration in compartments, marbled paper endpapers and edges, marbled paper covered slipcase. Front joint repaired in the top compartment (35 mm), very lightly rubbed. Occasional light spotting; an excellent copy. First edition of Ricardo's fundamental contribution to the science of economics. Ricardo is credited with the first systematic and scientific approach to economics; his exact mathematical approach and careful deductive methods provided a model for future texts in the field. Ricardo's interest in political economy was aroused in 1799 by a chance reading of Adam Smith. While he enjoyed cordial relations with Malthus, his economic views were decidedly anti-Malthusian. In 1815 he was urged by James Mill and others to set out a systematic account of his own theories. This led to the publication of the Principles, the result of little more than six months sustained work on his part. The "principal problem in political economy" as he defines it, is the "laws" which regulate "the natural course of rent, profits and wages" over time ("Preface"). However, his book covered not only those laws but also a newly developed labour theory of value, the theory of international comparative advantage, monetary theory, the influence of taxation, and strictures on the writings of his predecessors and contemporaries.

        Currants] [Black Currant; White Currant; Dutch Red Currant]

      G. Brookshaw, [London 1817 - Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In good condition. A fine image from Brookshaw's masterpiece: 'Pomona Britannica; or, A Collection of the Most Esteemed Fruits'. George Brookshaw's 'Pomona Britannica' is the finest work on fruit and flowers ever produced. Its breathtaking images display a level of technical virtuosity and beauty that distinguish this magnificent work as a true work of art. As a retired cabinetmaker, Brookshaw produced his seminal botanical study late in his career, at first publishing it in parts and then as a complete edition in 1812. The fact that this outstanding work took ten years to complete is evident in the quality of its images and the care with which Brookshaw executed each individual picture. 'Pomona Britannica' was produced as a visual record of the best available varieties of fruit in an attempt to encourage gardeners to experiment with growing fruit, and illustrates examples found in the Royal gardens at Hampton Court, Kensington Gardens, and the private gardens of the Prince of Wales in Blackheath. 'Pomona Britannica' differs from other botanical works in its dark aquatinted backgrounds and its stylized compositions. By using aquatint to create a contrasting background, Brookshaw manages to produce a truly dramatic effect. His use of stylized composition distinguishes his pictures from the dry scientific illustrations found in other botanical studies and creates an exceptionally beautiful visual experience. 'Pomona Britannica' is not only a didactic study, it is a masterpiece of illustration in which every picture is a testament to the artist's talent and ingenuity. Cf. Dunthorne 50; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p. 81; cf. Nissen BBI 244; cf. Sandra Raphael An Oak Spring Pomona 40a.

        The Naval Achievements of Great Britain from the year 1793-1817

      London: Printed for J. Jenkins by L. Harrison, 1817. 2 volumes. large 4to., (14 2/8 x 11 4/8 inches). Uncoloured engraved vignette title-page in volume one, hand-colored engraved vignette title-page in volume II, and 55 fine hand-colored aquatint plates (one or two loose, some marginal spotting and thumbing). Original publisher's half morocco gilt with publisher's ticket on the front paste-down of each volume (worn at the extremities with loss, some surface tears). First edition, later issue with plates variously watermarked up to 1833. First issued in 1817, and subsequently to order. Illustrating the naval engagements between Great Britain and Denmark, Spain, France and the United States. Included are three plates depicting the battle of Trafalgar. "As a record of naval events spanning a period of over twenty years Jenkins' "Naval Achievements" 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 the accuracy which makes Jenkins so valuable above all, and it is the pictures rather than the text to which the value can be attributed." Roger Quarm of the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, England.

        Autograph Manuscript Signed.

      - The only child of George Washington's long-time personal secretary Tobias Lear was actually born in the early "White House" in Philadelphia, and Washington was his godfather; his mother died when he was two (Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton were among her pallbearers), and he went on to become a successful attorney in Washington, DC; Gilbert Stuart painted a well-known portrait of him. Outstanding AMS, 2pp (recto and verso), 7 3/4" X 12 3/4", Portsmouth, NH, 1817 August 20. Very good. Three light horizontal original folds; mild age toning and slight edgewear. This attractively and boldly penned document is titled "Christmas Hymn," and contains the full text of a Christmas song whose original we have not been able to determine. Begins, "Hail holy morn, upon whose beams / A thousand radiant Seraphs rode, / Bright from the Sapphire throne of God. / Bursting upon the Shepherd's dreams.- / While poised upon the glittering wing, / A thousand choral voices sing, / Glad tidings of great joy we bring, / Be peace proclaimed on Earth / And Heaven's high arch with rapture ring." Goes on for several more stanzas, closing with: "Thus for the gift that thou hast given, / Hereafter we shall learn to rain / On days of everlasting Praise, / Tun'd to the Gold en Harps of Heaven." He then concludes, "Written from recollection for my Dear Cousin Miss Mary Storer," boldly dated and signed. Storer was the given name of Lear's mother, Mary "Polly" Lear (the first of Tobias Lear's three wives), who was related to the Washington family. There were a great many prominent Storers in early Portsmouth history, among them a Mary Storer born around 1785, who might well have been the recipient of this keepsake. Whether Lear's "recollection" of this hymn refers to him recalling a hymn he himself had written years before or to a hymn written by another is not clear, and certainly warrants further research. A most unusual and extremely interesting document. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Doppelblatt. „Frühmorgenlied vom Kirschblütenstrauß, schweren Stein, und von des, lieb Herz, und deiner Güte und ihrem Segen,Geschämig trit die falbeAurora vor das HimmelhausDa legt die graue SchwalbeFromm plaudernd ihr die Träume aus.Da sinken in das BlaueDer Sterne Geisteraugen einDa wäscht sich in dem TaueDas Licht den Sonnenschleier rein.Mich weckend summt die MückeAm Fenster, möcht zum Licht hinausDa lenk' ich meine BlickeAuf einen Kirschenblütenstrauß.Der Strauß von dir gepflücketEr hielt die Blüten fest bis heutDoch hat sich heut gebücketUnd seinen Schmuck umhergestreut.Die Blätter aber strecketEr frisch noch zu dem Lichte aus,Zum Licht, das mich erwecketUnd dich und deinen treuen Strauß.Vergieb geliebtes LebenDaß ich zuerst an dich gedachtKann ich zum Licht noch streben,So ist's, weil mir's in dir erwacht.Was wär' mir dann die SonneSchien' sie nicht in die Augen dein,In ihnen wird sie WonneIn meinen wird sie Feuerpein.Wohin ich in der KammerDie irren Blicke irren lass'Schlägt mahnend mir ein HammerAns schwere Herz ohn' Unterlaß.Die Bücher, und die BilderDie geizig ich zusammentrug,Sie schreien immer wilderO stein'ger Acker, stumpfer Pflug.Die Steine wollt' ich wälzenZu einer freien Aussicht LustEs wuchs daraus ein FelsenDer fiel zurück auf meine Brust.Zerschmettert, unbegrabenLag ich in Wind und WettersnotEs fraßen mich die Raben,Ich starb und starb doch nie zu Tod.Es wollt' kein Vogel singenAls wäre dieser Stein verfluchtEs wollt' kein Quell entspringenDer meine heiße Kehle sucht.Nur Kröten, Ottern, SchlangenUmkrochen kalt mir meine BrustDaß Kühlung ich empfangenSelbst von dem grimmen Eckel mußt.Und wenn ich glühend weinte,Verzweiflung mich zu singen zwangDa lobten mich die FreundeHohnlächelnd im Vorübergang.Heran wollt' keiner tretenDen Stein zu wälzen von der Brust,Mit mir wollt' keiner beten,Und ich hab' kein Gebet gewußt.Da rang ich endlich blutigDie rechte Hand mir los und frei,Und schlug ein Kreuz gar mutigDaß Jesu mir barmherzig sei.O wundertätig ZeichenDu trugst die Sünde aller WeltIch fühlt' die Last auch weichenDu warst als Stütze aufgestellt.Ein Vöglein kam gereisetBaut mir ein Dornennest ins HerzDas Vöglein Buße heißetUnd sein Gesang heißt: bittrer Schmerz.Ein Gärtlein ich ihm bauteVon herbem Kraut, heißt Reu und LeidDa fraß es von dem KrauteTrank meine Tränen allezeit.Und heißer ward sein Brüten,Das Dornennest in meiner BrustFühlt' ich wie Feuer wütenDas dürstend still ich tragen mußt'.So lag ich da alleineUnd hört' den Vogel, sah das KrautAls plötzlich von dem SteineEin kühler Quell herniedertaut.Da sah ich auf der SpitzenDes Steines in dem SonnenscheinGar still mitleidig sitzenDich liebes frommes Jungfräulein.Dem Quell, der mich erquicketErschlossest du das FelsentorAus deinen Augen blicketDie Gnade all, die ich verlor.Du siehst mit frommen SinnenDem Tanz der kleinen Fliegen zuUnd gönnst den goldnen SpinnenIhr schwebend Haus in Sonnenruh'.Den Käfer auf den RückenGefallen, richtest mild du auf,Schlägst sichre BlätterbrückenDer Ameise in ihrem Lauf.Du räumest auf den StegenDie Steine aus des Wandrers SchrittUnd tiefst auf irren WegenDie Spur mit deiner Füße Tritt.Du richtest längs dem PfadeDie sturmgebeugte Ähre aufUnd wirfst das zum GestadeGehüpfte Fischlein in den Lauf.Du wärmst mit deinem HaucheDas nestentfallne VögeleinUnd sammelst von dem StraucheZum Bett ihm zarte Wolle ein.Und seinen Eltern streuestDu deines Brodes Krümlein ausWeinst mit dem Leid und freuestDich mit der Lust in Gottes Haus.Deckst selbst das Nest der SchlangenFlehst selbst der Kröte um ein SchildSiehst du die Spinne hangenFeindselig überm Ekelbild.Mein Weh hast du gespüretUnd riefst den Sünder gern zu GastDen Stein hast du gerühret,Er weichet schon ich atme fast.Mein Durst hat dich gezogenUnd deine Tränen flossen mirDie ersten GnadenwogenEntsprangen mir von dir, von dir.Ich las aus deinen BlickenDaß Gottes Lieb unendlich istDein Mund konnt' mich erquickenEr sprach und sang von Jesu Christ.Du sprachst: »Wie einst auf E

        Illustrations of the Vicar of Wakefield [cover title]

      [London, 1817] - 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 4to (11-1/4 x 9 inches). 24 hand-colored aquatints (9 x 6 inches), [38, blanks] pp. 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.

        Something to Look at or the Return of the Embassy.

      (Pubd. Octor. 1817 by J. Johnston), (1817), (London): - A caricature, unrecorded in the British Museum Catalogue, poking fun at the tradition of explorers bringing individuals and/or animals from their travels back to England, as did James Cook, bringing Omai from Tahiti. As usual, the caricature takes aim at politicians as sycophants and the waste of vast amounts of public money. It is not clear what the "Embassy" is in this case, but it could be the three Kandyan Wars which the British waged in Sri Lanka 1803-05, 1815 and 1817-18. The print depicts an ape with walking stick strolling arm in arm with a gentleman in top hat, tails and cane, together on a London street as a soldier gapes in astonishment at them. The gentleman is saying to the monkey, "Egad Friend it's very lucky I met with you!! but for you John Bull would have had nothing to look at for his 50 Thousand!! mind when you are introduced we have no such stupid ceremony as knocking off heads. Our courtiers kiss bottoms, attend to this & you'll be certain of a Seat or a Sinecure!" Below the image to left and right of title are a French proverb and a line from Shakespeare, "Nimble mischance that art so light of foot. Doth not thy Embassy belong to me". This is a quote from Richard II, Act III, Scene IV, 96-97. The print is recorded at the Library of Congress (see pictures item 2006681631) as follows: "This record contains unverified, old data from an unpublished P&P checklist, "British Political and Social Caricatures, 1655- 1832 . not in the published catalogs of the British Museum," compiled in 1968 (NC 1470.M4. Vol. 2). Not found in British Museum Catalogue (BMC)." Copper engraving with original hand color, 10 x 14" laid down on card stock. The title "Something to look at" is repeated in ink in a period hand below the impression mark. A couple of closed tears in margins, not affecting image, a little dusty but overall a good copy of an unusual image.

      London: John Murray 1817 - 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&#146;s bookplate to the reverse of the front free endpaper with some spotting and darkening to the margins of early pages. Volume one inscribed at the head of the title page "To Miss Emily Calcraft / with the author&#146;s best regards", an ink inscription "By Lord Erskine" partially scratched out from beneath the printed title. Two pages with emmendations in the margins. Volume two inscribed 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. 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.

        Natuurbeschouwingen voornamelijk in het rijk der dieren ingerigt tot een aangenaam en leerzaam leesgeschenk voor de aankomende jeugd.

      . Amsterdam, C. L. Schleijer, 1817. 8vo. viii, 142, [ii] pp., eight hand coloured copper-engraved plates of which three larger, folded. Contemporary blind marbled paper boards. Edges dyed yellow.* Ver rare work on natural history, with hand-coloured plates of gaudy birds (five plates, including three large, folded), butterflies (two) and Orthoptera and Odonata (one). The text is presented as a dialogue between a teacher and a pupil, and is takes place in the small town of Muiderberg near Amsterdam. Perhaps this is a clue as to the identity of the author. The scientific basis is formed by the works of Houttuyn and Martinet. The last two pages contain a list of other works published by Schleijer. Boards rather rubbed, especially at the joints and corners. Small old paper repair to one folded plate, bookplate of former owner (an entomologist) on front paste-down. Text pages and plates clean. A very good copy. The work is reviewed in the Vaderlandsche Letteroefeningen, 1817. There is little documentation on this book, and there is only one auction record in the last 35 years from Sotheby's 1984, noting: "couldn't find this". Neither in Landwehr, nor in Nissen; not in the Osborne collection of early children's books..

A marvelous association copy, Inscribed by the author on the title page: "Prince Saunders with the Author&#39;s respects." The Library Company of Philadelphia has six works by Prince Saunders, some inscribed by him to Philadelphia abolitionists, but we have not found a single copy of any book presented to him or known to have been in his library. Born in New England, Saunders was a African-American scholar who went to England. There he met William Wilberforce, who encouraged him to go to Haiti. Saunders became the confidant of Haitian Emperor Christophe, and wrote The Haytian Papers. The following year he came to Philadelphia, where he met several anti-slavery leaders including Roberts Vaux, a noted Philadelphia-born jurist and abolitionist. "Polished and witty, he became a confidant of Christophe, vaccinated his children, and was entrusted by him with an embassy to England. Saunders was impressed with the black king and his black kingdom. To express this feeling he edited the Haytian Papers, a translation and commentary of the Code Henri... In 1818 Saunders came to Philadelphia ... and made the acquaintance of the Philadelphia anti-slavery leaders. One of the most important of these was William Rawle ... Another was Roberts Vaux, a tireless Quaker man-of-good-works, to whom Saunders wrote..." LCP, Negro History 1553-1903 #74 (being an 1822 ALS to Vaux). .

        Panorama D'Angleterre, ou Ephémérides Anglaises, Politiques et Littéraires

      au Bureau du Panorma; chez Plancer; et chez tous les Libraires des départemens, Paris, 1817-1818 - Vol.1 with engraved frontispiece portrait of Mistress Siddons, double-page engraved musical score, hand-coloured plate of "Modes Anglaise" and folding hand-coloured plate of "Ordre des Chevaliers de la Bombe". Vol.2 with double-page engraved musical score as frontispiece. Two volumes. 8vo. [213 x 133 x 75 mm]. [1]f, iv, 332 pp; [1]f, 260, 273-348, [3] pp. Uncut and partly unopened. bound with the original printed pink front wrappers in modern boards with printed labels. A little light damp-staining at the front of vol.2, but a very good copy. Vol.1 is dated Juillet 1817 and vol.2 Janvier 1818. The work appears to be very rare: there is a copy in the Bibliothèque Nationale and OCLC lists one at Minnesota. It is not in the British Library or the Bodleain catalogues. The work is full of information and observation, and pokes some fun at the English. The hand-coloured folding plate is of a scatalogical nature.
