        Honorary Testimonial

      London - Honorary Testimonial etched and engraved by John Dadley after James George Oben, with a gold stamp in the bottom right corner, plate size 382 x 323 mm, sheet size 528 x 383 mm. [ebc6128] [London: c.1817] A very grand engraved testimonial granting John Lee Esq Honorary Membership of the Royal Jennerian Society on 5th June 1837, with his name and the date added in manuscript. A triumphal arch is surmounted by the royal crest and a lion and unicorn, with rows of crests interspersed with pillars, with Jenner standing to the left as he tramples a serpent, while standing on a pedestal decorated with a woman milking a cow and handing a bowl to children. Through the arch can be seen London and St. Paul's, and below are sheets of paper listing the Patrons and Honorary Members in 1817. At the foot, to the right of John Lees's name is a golden square (56 x 56 mm) stamped with a circular impression of Jenner with cattle around him, and a ship and St. Paul's. Following the discovery of Edward Jenner (1749-1823) the Royal Jennarian Society was formed at the London Tavern on 19th January 1803. Under the patronage of the Prince and Princess of Wales, the society's goal was to promote the eradication of smallpox through vaccination. By 1817 the Duke of Wellington was President, a position he still held 20 years later.

An das königliche Oberamt zu Calw, dem er den Taufschein des Kindes der Maria Christiane Bachmaier aus Stammheim sowie die Abschrift des Attests überschickt, mit dem diese in die "hiesige Gebähranstalt" eingewiesen wurde. Auf der zweiten und dritten Seite finden sich die eigenhändigen Notizen des Oberamtmanns Friedrich Braun, der dem Calwer Oberamt von 1808 bis 1827 vorstand, zum vorliegenden Fall.Georgii, Wilhelm August (1789-1819), schwäbischer Mediziner und Revoluzzer. Georgii, Sohn eines Pfarrers aus Degerloch, studierte zunächst Theologie in Tübingen und seit 1808 Medizin. 1816 wurde Georgii ordentlicher Professor der Chirurgie und Geburtshülfe und damit zugleich Direktor der "Chirurgischen und geburtshülflichen Klinik an der Universität zu Tübingen". Als Antrittsvorlesung hielt er "Zwey Vorträge, über den Begriff von Chirurgie und Geburtshülfe und die Bedingungen ihrer Ausübung", in denen er sich u.a. mit der Frage befasste, ob "die Geburtshülfe den Weibern anvertraut werden" solle. Neben seinen medizinischen und wissenschaftlichen Leistungen ist Georgii v.a. als studentischer Sozial-Revoluzzer und Insasse des Hohenasperg bekannt geworden. Als Student gründete Georgii 1806 gemeinsam mit dem Naturforscher und Industriellen Karl Ludwig Freiherr von Reichenbach und dem Botaniker Christian Ferdinand Friedrich Hochstetter die "Otaheiti-Gesellschaft", einen von Cooks Reisebeschreibungen inspirierten Geheimbund, der, die Verhältnisse in Europa anprangernd, die Auswanderung und Errichtung einer Kolonie auf Tahiti anvisierte. Nachdem der Bund bei den Autoritäten denunziert worden war, wurden die Gründer und einige der Mitglieder der Gesellschaft gefangengesetzt: Georgii erhielt wegen "lebhaft geäusserter Abneigung gegen die politische Verfassung Europas" vier Wochen Festungshaft (cf. Horst Brandstätter, Asperg: Ein Deutsches Gefängnis, Berlin 1978, 52)Briefe von Wilhelm August Georgii (1789-1819) sind im Autographenhandel äußerst selten!

        Rosa Gallica Versicolor

      Paris 1817 - This beautiful stipple engraving is from Pierre Joseph Redoute's Les Roses. The work was published in Paris by Firmin Didot between 1817 and 1824. The text was written by Claude Antoine Thory.Redoute's name is synonymous with beauty and in the world of botanical art he is known as the best. The work proved to be not only outstanding in terms of its beauty but also for its scientific merits. Many of the images were after Thory's personal collection as well as the rose garden of the Empress Josephine's garden at Malmaison. Redoute and Thory described almost all of the important roses that were known in their time. Lawalree describes the text as being 'of outstanding importance to both botanists and horticulturalists.Redoute's fame is due in large part to his diligent effort to perfect the use of stipple engraving. This labor intensive, and therefore expensive, technique creates subtle yet stunning variations of color making it superior to the engraving alone. Each plate was created using the 'a la poupee' process in which the color was applied before the printing. Hand-finished coloring was painstakingly applied after printing.Redoute was renowned for his artistic ability and tutored such people as Queen Marie-Antoinette, Empress Josephine, Marie-Louise, and Queen Marie-Amelie. Redoute influenced a breadth of artists that followed him including Turpin, Poiteau, Bessa, and Prevost. Redoute is widely considered the finest botanical illustrator of the early 19th century, if not throughout history.The process of stipple engraving and color printing give the Redoute Rose prints their luminous quality. Stippling is an etching process that employs dots instead of lines to form the image, which is then color printed by applying colored inks directly to the copper plate for each impression. The use of colored inks, greens and browns to print the stems and leaves, and reds and pinks to print the flowers, create a more luminous print by eliminating the necessity to paint watercolor over a back inked image. --- The work is in very good to excellent condition. There is an occasional faint fox mark or imperfection to be expected with age. Please review the image carefully for condition and contact us with any questions.

        A Complete and Permanent Science of Morals, Founded on Transcendental Philosopy. [or, drop title: Moral philosophy reduced to a complete and permanent science on the principles of transcendental philosophy, as contained in Kant's "Critic of Practical Reason."]

      - n.p. [London 1817] Quarto original wrapper titled in gilt with printed label; printed on the back; title leaf, pp763-784 and separately printed index leaf numbered 785, four hand coloured plates. A presentation from Wirgman inscribed to Wm Constable Esqre on the front wrapper and annotated throughout as a guide to the reader. This a separate printing of Wirgman's article on Kant's moral philosophy in Encyclopaedia Londinensis - a perfect example of enthusiasm on it's way to being mania. Wirgman did four articles altogether covering the array of Kant and these could be bought from him coloured or uncoloured. He then went on to write and publish a formidable line of Kantesian solutions to everything. Along the way he spent the fortune he had made as a goldsmith. As John Timbs - retailer of dusty gossip - described him, "the eccentric Thomas Wirgman, the Kantesian, as a goldsmith and jeweller, made a considerable fortune, which he squandered as a regenerating philosopher." Wirgman was introduced to Kant by Friedrich Nitsch in the 1790s along with Godwin, Henry Richter and Coleridge. Unlike fellow traveller Coleridge, Wirgman didn't run for cover confronted with the indifference or hostility to German philosophy in England. It may have been exactly Wirgman that made Coleridge write "I am no Zealot or Bigot for German Philosophy" to a friend at the same time he wanted to found a German library - just not called German - in London. As said, Wirgman, advertised these for sale but this is a special presentation copy exhaustively made easy to navigate by numerous captions and pointers. William Constable is a too common name to place but there was a Scottish goldsmith William Constable at work around that time.

        Memoirs of the Life of Anthony Benezet

      Published by James P. Parke / Merritt, Printer, Philadelphia 1817 - First edition. 12mo. [8], 136pp. Lacking the front board and frontispiece, rear board detached but present, pages toned but uncut, wear along the spine and wear affecting a couple letters of the inscription, good plus. Housed in a half morocco clamshell case. A marvelous association copy, Inscribed by the author on the title page: "Prince Saunders with the Author'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. This book is the memoir Anthony Benezet, a French-born abolitionist, who founded one of the earliest anti-slavery societies in the world in Philadelphia in 1775. Born in New England, Saunders was an 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). [Attributes: First Edition]

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, & Brown; Lackington, Hughes, Mavor, & Jones; and Joseph Harding, 1817–30 - 2 works in 8 volumes, bound as 18, folio (475 x 320 mm). Uniformly bound in mid-19th-century deep purple morocco by Clarke & Bedford, richly gilt spines, gilt ornamental panels on sides, gilt supralibros of Archibald Acheson (third Earl of Gosford) on front covers, all edges gilt, richly gilt roll tool turn-ins, marbled endpapers. From the library of the Irish judge William O'Brien (1832-1899), whose discerning collection is a microcosm of late 19th-century taste in book collecting, and included a handful of medieval manuscripts, incunabula, Aldine editions, three Shakespeare folios, 16th-century English books and handsome editions of English literature; subsequent labels of Milltown Park Library; spines (and some covers) lightly sunned, occasional dark mottling, internally some foxing and light offsetting from plates to letterpress. An excellent set. Monasticon: half-titles, additional engraved titles, letterpress titles in red and black (in 8 volumes), 243 engraved plates (52 double-page); Saint Paul's: half-titles, engraved frontispiece in part one, 64 engraved plates (7 double-page); wood-engraved decorative initials throughout. First of these editions, each of the large paper issue limited to 50 sets, with proof plates; the Gosford Castle copy. "In the early 'forties, [Archibald Acheson] the third earl of Gosford (1806-1864) had formed at Gosford Castle, in Ireland, a large and extremely beautiful library which was sold by private contract in 1878 to the London bookseller James Toovey" (Seymour De Ricci, English Collectors of Books & Manuscripts, 1930, p. 156). A part of the library - "the history, topography, natural history and the important series of books on large paper" (ibid.) - were dispersed through the sale rooms of Puttick and Simpson in April 1884 but some were retained by Toovey's heirs, and the choicest books passed into the Pierpont Morgan library in 1899. Dudgdale and Dodsworth's monumental Monasticon Anglicanum was first published between 1655 and 1673. "It gave the history of the various orders in England, and an account of all the individual monasteries. The surviving foundation charters, and charters relating to the growth of the monastery, were printed in full, and all known benefactions of land made to the monastery were set down. Monasticon Anglicanum established for the first time the importance of charters as a primary source for the writing of medieval history, and as a source for understanding the legal practice of earlier centuries and aspects of the feudal system relating to conditions of tenure. Equally it established for the first time since the Reformation the importance of monasteries and the scale of their territorial possessions" (ODNB). This superb Regency edition "contains everything in the original, and in [the antiquary, John] Stevens's continuation [of 1722-23], with an English account of each monastery, and additions from the Chapter House, Westminster, and public libraries" (Lowndes). It also drew on the records in the Tower of London and the Cottonian collection. Dugdale's history of Saint Paul's – originally issued in 1658 - became "the lasting memorial of old St Paul's" (ODNB) after the great fire of 1666 destroyed the old building. The original plates by Wenceslaus Hollar were re-engraved for this edition by the Finden brothers but the majority of the fine new plates are by the draughtsman and engraver John Coney. With some considerable justification, the editors describe Coney in their Preface as "an artist whose execution possesses the freedom and delicacy of Piranesi, without his occasional obscurity and coarseness". The art historian Michael Bryan, a contemporary of Coney's, refers to his plates as being "executed with consummate skill. His drawings exhibit all the minutest details without the appearance of labour, yet with a neatness that is truly surprising" (Bryan's Dictionary of Painters and Engravers). One of the finest English books of the period, here superbly bound

      R.S. Kirby. [1817] - Hand-coloured front., engr. titlepage, 100 numbered hand-coloured plates (3 folding) on 99 leaves designed by Woodward & engraved by Isaac Cruikshank; pp vi/6 mounted on stub, sl. tear along plate indent of no. 58, plates largely bright & clean, some occasional sl. creasing to text block. Sl. later half brown calf, raised bands, black morocco label; a little rubbed. First published in 1796 by Allen & Co. Copac records only 2 copies, in Nottingham and Leeds, of this edition. Auction records show only two copies having sold since 1980. The plates are those originally published by Allen & Co. and are variously dated 1796, 1797, 1813 and 1814, with the vast majority dated 1796 and 1797. Kirby, who published in London between 1800 and 1850, appears to have purchased Allen?s old stock of plates and made up as many complete versions as he could. The scarcity of this edition indicates that he did not have enough plates to make very many. George Moutard Woodward, 1760-1809, was a caricaturist and friend of Thomas Rowlandson. Drawn much in the style of his contemporary Henry Bunbury, Woodward?s style was often coarse and extravagant but displaying ?a singular wealth of imagination and insight into character? A drinking partner of the more illustrious caricaturist Rowlandson, Woodward died destitute in the Brown Bear pub in Covent Garden. Eccentric Excursions is in Woodward?s familiar style, humorously observing rural and urban life across England & Wales.

On title pages, engraved Portuguese royal arms flanked by two putti, above whose heads is engraved "Impressão" and "Regia". Title pages with light toning and a few light, minor stains. Overall in very good to fine condition. 385 pp. [i.e., 387], (1 p. errata); 345 pp. (1 l. errata); 264 pp. Volume I, pp. 377-87 incorrectly numbered 375-85. Volume III, p. 332 incorrectly numbered 333. *** FIRST EDITION. The third volume is more difficult to obtain than the first two. Toward the end of volume I are a series of translations, including selections from Virgil, Homer's Iliad, and others. Volume III includes translations of two odes by Horace. Throughout are poems to or about figures important in Portuguese history and literature, such as Vasco da Gama, Camões, and the Infante Dom Henrique, as well as one on the discovery of America by Columbus. In volume III, from page 176 to the end, are a series of neo-Latin poems.Ribeiro dos Santos (1745-1818), philologist, librarian, jurist, literary historian and poet, was a native of Massarellos (Porto). Innocêncio considered him "um dos mais respeitaveis, eruditos e fecundos escriptores que Portugal produziu no seculo passado" (I, 247). With a doctorate in canon law, he served as librarian of the University at Coimbra, where he took a significant part in the reorganization of the library, and later at the Bibliotheca Publica de Lisboa, playing a key role in the formation of the future Biblioteca Nacional. Ribeiro dos Santos was, according to Maxwell, Pombal, a "key figure in the reform of the teaching of canon law at Coimbra and theoretician of regalism in church questions." He was responsible for much of the content of the 8-volume Memorias de litteratura published by the Real Academia das Sciencias (of which he was a founding member), a translation of Aristotle's Poetics directly from the Greek, and much more. When Robert Southey made his second visit to Portugal, this "man of rank and of learning" permitted Southey use of his collection and papers (letter to John Rickman from Lisbon, January 30, 1801, in Curry, ed., New Letters of Robert Southey, I, 240).*** Innocêncio I, 253 (without collations). Pinto de Mattos (1970), p. 539. Fonseca, Pseudónimos p. 24 (without collations). Andrade, Dicionário de pseudónimos p. 87.

        John Carpenter's Ciphering Book: (Algebra, Surveying, and Astronomy), Salem County, New Jersey, 1817-1820

      (Salem, New Jersey and West Chester, Pennsylvania), 1817. Good. Folio. Quarter bound in contemporary leather and marbled paper over boards, titled in manuscript on the front board: John R. Carpenter's Book / Salem County, New Jersey. Overall rubbing and wear to the boards and spine, old light dampstain to the front bottom left corner, one gathering at the center is detached (with remnants of the original sewing thread present), good or better. An exemplary ciphering book featuring fine penmanship and several hand-colored illustrations and diagrams. The book's contents is divided into three sections, each corresponding to Carpenter's courses taken at the Mannington School in Salem County, and the Weston School (i.e., Westtown), a Quaker boarding school in Chester County, Pennsylvania: Algebra, pp. 1-53 (Mannington, 1817); Surveying, pp. 54-140 [141-148] (Mannington, 1817); and Astronomy, pp. [149-208] (Weston, 1820). The second section on Surveying is illuminated with many hand-colored illustrations and figures, including maps of local landmarks, such as: "New Road to Salem", "Joseph Reeve's House", "Cedar Creek", among others. The third section on Astronomy features two large hand-colored diagrams and pen & ink diagrams.The text and tables are written in Carpenter's neat hand, as the practice of good penmanship was presumably integral with the course work. The first section is comprised of simple and quadratic equations, and "Questions producing quadratic equations" written out as rules, examples, and problems. The second section on Surveying includes geometry and plane trigonometry together with surveying proper ("laying out and dividing land", etc.) written out as cases, rules, examples, and problems, and featuring numerous color illustrations. The third section on astronomy is written out in like manner in multiple chapters, including one on predicting and calculating eclipses that features fine color illustrations and diagrams.Of John R. Carpenter man little is known. The Carpenter family was among the first settlers of the Philadelphia area, and removed from there to Salem County in 1742. His father William was active in Quaker affairs, and helped establish the Mannington School in 1793. John, born in 1804, died young, and unmarried, in 1833. A beautifully written and illustrated ciphering book, which documents the way penmanship, mathematics, surveying, and astronomy were taught in North America during the early 19th century.
