        A True and Correct Account of the Trial, Confession and Execution...

      1817. "The Crimes of These Men were Most Dangerous to Society, And Attended with Many Circumstances of Aggravation" [Broadside]. [Executions]. A True and Correct Account of the Trial, Confession and Execution of Dr. Patrick Dooring for a Rape, And of William Varley, Benjamin Micklethwaite, And Benjamin Gartside, For Burglary, Who Were Executed at the New Drop, Behind the Castle, At York, On Saturday, April 12, 1817. York: Printed and Sold by C. Croshaw, [1817]. 14" x 8-1/2" broadside. Woodcut execution scene depicting three bodies hanging from a gallows above headline. Text in two columns, black border along margins. Light browning and edgewear, negligible light soiling, a few minor creases, small section below text clipped from lower right-hand border. $1,500. * "It is some years since so many prisoners were executed at one time, but the crimes of these men were most dangerous to society, and attended with many circumstances of aggravation" (subtitle). The text consists of detailed accounts of the crimes that had been committed with an emphasis on the deeds of the Irish physician Patrick Dooring and the "unfortunate victim of his lawless lust," fourteen year old Ann Broadbent. In notably lurid language, the account details the crime's preparation, the crime and the search for Dooring, who had escaped to Ireland. The crimes of the other two are also described in detail. As is often the case, the final paragraphs of the text advise readers to ponder their actions and how they may lead to a "violent and ignominious death." The woodcut depicts three people hanging from their nooses behind York Castle. It is clearly a generic image; one of them is a woman. This appears to be an unrecorded broadside. No copies are recorded on OCLC or the British Library.

      1817 1817 - First edition. London: Printed for J. Jenkins by L. Harrison [1816-17]. With frontispiece, title-vignette and 54 plates, all hand-colored aquatint plates by T. Sutherland, J. Baily, and J. Jeakes after T. Whitcombe and Pocock, and with 1 uncolored plate with plan of the Bombardment of Algiers and plan of the Battle of Trafalgar. Folio. VIII + [4] + [148] pp. Clean and well-preserved copy with wide margin bound with guard tissues in contemporary gilt half-morocco, binding weakly marked of use. * Plates dated 1816 and 1817. One of the finest pictorial works depicting British military victories that occurred from 1799 to 1815. It contains several plates of Britain's most significant victories during the Napoleonic wars and include plates on the Battle of Copenhagen and on 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.'

      Hi, This lot is a paperback copy of the Third Edition of William Lamberts ""Instructions and Rules for playing the Nobel Game of Cricket as practised by the most eminent players"" Published in the Spring of 1817 (before May) so nearly 200 years old. This paperback does not have the original covers or the frontispiece but other than that it is complete and checked against Roger Hancocks guide. The front cover (title page) has tape to the left but the book is badly shaken and could do with new tape or to be rebound as it is very loose indeed, hence the tiny price.

Buchband 2: Halbleinen jüngerer Zeit.

Bemerkungen: Seltene Erstausgabe in 2 Bänden - Johann Evangelist Fürst (1784 - 1846) erzielte 1817 mit seinem „Bauer Strüf“ eine weite Verbreitung in der ländlichen Kultur seiner Zeit. Meist der sog. Hausvaterliteratur zugerechnet übersteigt dieses im Stile einer dialogisch angelegten Erzählliteratur wissensreiche Kompendium landwirtschaftlich-forstökonomischen Wissens seiner Zeit dieses Genre bei Weitem. Es gibt umfassenden Einblick in die Agrarkultur der Zeit versehen mit unzähligen Erfahrungsschätzen zur Steigerung von Produktivität und Ökonomie in der Hof- und Hauswirtschaft. Grund für die weite Verbreitung dieses Werkes war die Wahl des Erzählstils, durch den das dargebrachte Wissen gewissermaßen seine agrarpädagogische Methode fand. „Johann Evangelist Fürst wurde am 28. Dezember 1784 im niederbayerischen Frauendorf bei Vilshofen als sechstes Kind der Bauerseheleute Michael und Katharina Fürst geboren. Im Wesentlichen geht es um die Geschichte der Familie von Simon ‘Strüf’ – ein so genanntes Anagramm zu ‘Fürst’ und somit auf Johann Evangelists Bruder gemünzt – und seiner Ehefrau Theres im fiktiven ostniederbayerischen Ort ‘Lichtendorf’. Die Strüfs schaffen es in schwieriger Zeit zu Wohlstand zu kommen. (Sie) nutzen (die) rationelle Verbesserungen in der Feld-, Wiesen-, Garten-, Haus- und Hofwirtschaft mit Obst-, Gemüse-, Kräuter-, Flachs-, Ölpflanzen-, Hopfen- und Tabakanbau, Obstbaum-, Vieh- und Bienenzucht, Unkraut- und Schädlingsvernichtung sowie vermehrtem Düngemitteleinsatz u.a. (Fürst) stellte. (auf seinen Gütern) im Frühjahr 1820 den ehemaligen Schlossgärtner von Irlbach bei Straubing, Herbert Rudolph Diecker, an, der aus dem friesischen Emden stammte und sieben Jahre in Fürsts Diensten blieb. Ab Herbst 1821 schickte er diesen besonders in Pomologie fachkundigen und belesenen Mann durch ganz Bayern für eine Bestandsaufnahme in Sachen Obstkultur und auch zum Erfahrungsaustausch mit Freunden der Gartenkultur. Diecker hatte weit reichende Verbindungen zu Deutschlands führenden Pommologen der Zeit – z. B. dem Arzt Adrian Diel im rheinischen Diez an der Lahn, der 1819 erst ein neunbändiges ‘System der in Deutschland vorkommenden Kernobstarten’ abgeschlossen hatte, ferner dem Württemberger Pfarrer Johann Ludwig Christ, dem Thüringer Pfarrer Johann Volkmar Sickler, Verfasser von ‘Der teutsche Obstgärtner’, oder dem fränkischen Adeligen Christian Freiherr Truchseß von Wetzhausen zu Bettenburg. Dadurch gelang es Fürst, aus vielen Baumschulen im In- und Ausland alle möglichen Sorten von Kern- und Steinobst nach Frauendorf zu holen.weitere Informationen auf der Homepage des Bundes Akademie Verlags.

I consider the independence of L. America as connected with the cardinal interests of mankind.

He persuaded the state lawmakers to provide 7 million dollars for the construction of a canal 363 miles long and 40 feet wide and four feet deep. James Monroe was President at this time and his cabinet included John C. Calhoun and John Quincy Adams. The United Kingdom also opposed a reconquest of Latin America and suggested that the U.S. join in proclaiming "hands off". Ex Presidents Jefferson and Madison counseled Monroe to accept the offer but Adams led him down a different path which led Clinton to become apprehensive. Twenty years after Monroe died in 1831, this became known as the Monroe Doctrine. General Tallmadge studied law, was admitted to the bar, and practiced several years in Poughkeepsie and New York. He also owned a farm in Dutchess county. For some time he was private secretary to Governor George Clinton, and during the war of 1812-'15 he commanded a company of home-guards in the defense of New York. He was elected a representative to congress as a Democrat, and served from December 1, 1817, to March 3, 1819, but declined a re-election. During that time, he defended General Andrew Jackson's course in the Seminole war, and introduced, as an amendment to the bill authorizing the people of Missouri to form a state organization, a proposition to exclude slavery from that state when admitted to the Union.

        William Lambert - 1816/7 - 3rd Edition

      Hi, This lot is a paperback copy of the Third Edition of William Lamberts ""Instructions and Rules for playing the Nobel Game of Cricket as practised by the most eminent players"" Published in the Spring of 1817 (before May) so nearly 200 years old. This paperback does not have the original covers or the frontispiece but other than that it is complete and checked against Roger Hancocks guide. The front cover (title page) has tape to the left but the book is badly shaken and could do with new tape or to be rebound as it is very loose indeed, hence the tiny price.

        The Byrth, Lyf, and Actes of Kyng Arthur; of His Noble Knights of the Rounde Table, Theyr Merveyllous Enquests & Adventures .

      Longman, Hurst, London 1817 - Two large 8vo volumes. (4),lxiii,(3),xxxix,(1)383,(1);(4)495,(1)pp. Printed from Caxton's edition of 1485. With an Introduction and Notes by Robert Southey, the Poet Laureate of England. First edition with Southey's notes. Each volume with a large woodcut on the title page showing a knight and a dragon. Engraved gothic and figural initials. Contemporary binding of full near black morocco, spines in six compartments with raised bands, top edges gilt; gilt inner dentelles; marbled endpapers. Text blocks are remarkably free of the usual foxing that dogs this edition. Neat bookplates in each volume. A near fine set. This is the ninth printing of Malory, after Caxton (1485), De Worde (1498 & 1529), Copland (1557), East (ca. 1575), Stansby (1634) and two 12mo. editions in 1816. This was the first modern text of Malory which attempted to recapture the text as it was first published by Caxton. All contemporary advertisements indicate that this edition consisted only of 250 copies with 50 copies on large paper, though there is some suggestion from notes in the publisher's books that as many as 1000 copies may have been printed. This is the regular edition, still impressive at 10 inches, and a scarce and important printing. Gaines, A9. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Encyklopädie der philosophischen Wissenschaften im Grundrisse.

      Heidelberg: in August Oswald's Universitätsbuchhandlung,, 1817. Zum Gebrauch seiner Vorlesungen … Octavo (200 × 120 mm). Recent marbled boards, red paper spine label lettered gilt. Scattered light spotting throughout, as usual; a very good copy. First edition of Hegel's most complete exposition of his system, written for use at his lectures when he was professor of philosophy at Heidelberg (1816–18). "Hegel is, of course, famous for his dialectical method, but it is enormously difficult to explain this in a brief compass. It should first be noted that Hegel set out his systematic writings in dialectical triads comprising a thesis, antithesis, and synthesis. Thus, he divided his Encylopedia, in which he expounded his system as a whole, into three fundamental division sections – 'Logic' [a revision of his Science of Logic], 'Philosophy of Nature' and 'Philosophy of Mind'" (Encyclopedia of Philosophy III, 436). Each of these three sections is then further divided into three, resulting in an encyclopaedic structure for his entire system.
