First edition of a simplified Latin version of the Old Testament narrative, with comments and a dictionary, which was used at the prestigious Tsarskoye Selo Lyceum, from which Aleksandr Pushkin graduated in 1818. Both he and other noted members of the first graduating class, such as the poets Anton Delvig and Vil'gel'm Kiukhel'beker, studied rhetoric and classical languages with Nikolai F. Koshanskii (1781-1831). Koshanskii was a popular teacher, who was fondly remembered by Pushkin's circle after graduating. He authored numerous works on Russian and Latin grammar and issued a primer in "General rhetoric" for his pupils at the Lyceum, many of whom went on to hold leading positions in government and military. The biblical plot is divided into 209 passages, each with a brief Russian summary and annotations. A separate dictionary follows the text part. Not in KVK, OCLC. We only locate the copy at the Slovanska knihovna in Prague (from the Smirdin Collection).

      - Paris, Ph. Petit, sd [ca.1818]. In-folio (345*265mm), [2]-147p. Edition originale de ce bel ouvrage de musique entièrement gravé sur beau papier vergé. La première publication de la méthode de Devienne date de 1793.

Une seconde édition paraitra. Cette édition est qualifiée d¿édition originale car Vanderhagen y a ajouté de nombreux exercices qu¿il a arrangés lui-même. L¿ouvrage contient trois grandes planches dépliantes qui sont comptées dans la pagination, imprimées uniquement au resto. L¿ouvrage était vendu soit broché, soit relié. Reliure demi-basane abîmée mais encore solide, mouillure au début de l¿ouvrage, touchant un peu le texte et les portées, diminuant et disparaissant à la page 24, mouillure marginale sur une dizaine de pages autour de la page 90, un feuillet taché (145/146), petits trous de vers marginaux sur les 3 derniers feuillets. Quelques feuillets réparés. Ouvrage d¿une grande rareté. Nous n¿avons répertorié qu¿un seul exemplaire, à l¿université Baylor (Waco, Texas, USA) et deux microfilms (d¿après l¿exemplaire Baylor ?).

        The Revolt of Islam

      For C. and J. Ollier, Welbeck Street, London 1818 - First edition, second issue, with correctly dated title, a cancel; errata leaf (b2) bound at end of volume rather than after title (replacing missing blank leaf); fly-title correctly bound as d1. [2], [v]-xxxii, [ii], 270, [1, errata] [1] pp. 8vo. Maria Gisborne's copy. This edition reproduces the text of Laon and Cythna (1818), made up of the same sheets, with a new title-page and twenty-six cancel leaves, the Preface ending on p. xxi and the half-title changed to The Revolt of Islam. "When only a few copies [of Laon and Cythna] had been issued, Ollier, the publisher, demanded that certain passages be removed or changed, and Shelley, under protest, acceded to his wishes" (Granniss Shelley 44).This copy belonged to Maria Gisborne (1770-1836), an intimate of Percy and Mary Shelley, and the subject of Shelley's fine poem "Letter to Maria Gisborne." Gisborne had been a friend of Mary Shelley's parents, Mary Wollstonecraft and William Godwin. (Following the death of Wollstonecraft, Gisborne would reject a marriage proposal from Godwin.) Her friendship with Mary and Percy Shelley dates from 1818, when the couple came to stay with her and her husband John Gisborne at their home Casa Ricci in Livorno, Italy, (where Shelley would write the "Letter" as well as "To a Skylark"). On a subsequent visit the Gisbornes comforted the Shelleys following the death of their son William. "Maria, widely read in Spanish and Italian literature, took this opportunity to share her knowledge with the Shelleys. It was she who alerted the Shelleys to the story of the Cenci by showing them a manuscript of the narrative, which Mary copied and Percy used for his famous play. Maria also began teaching Percy Spanish and helped him read the plays of Calderón. On their side, the Shelleys helped finance Henry Reveley's project to build a steamboat. Unbeknownst to Mary, Percy also asked for and received aid from the Gisbornes in the delicate matter of his illegitimate child, Elena Adelaide Shelley . After Percy was drowned in July 1822, it was to Maria Gisborne that Mary wrote on 15 August a long account of their last days together and the aftermath of her husband's death. Maria again comforted the young widow, and their friendship and correspondence continued to the end of Maria's life" (ODNB). The book is identified as Gisborne's by an autograph note on the front pastedown by H. Buxton Forman, who acquired it at the 1878 Puttick & Simpson sale of the Grisborn library. Ashley V, pp. 67-68; Granniss 44; Tinker 1895. Provenance: H. Buxton Forman (extensive autograph note on pastedown detailing provenance, bookplate laid in); Jerome Kern (bookplate) Original blue boards backed with marbled paper, paper spine label (priced "10s. 6d.

Tab., mit 4 feinen Kupfertafeln, davon 1 als Mezzotinta - Radierung in Farbe gedruckt, in feinem Halblerdenband minimal fleckiges, feines breitrandiges Exemplar. Erste Ausgabe der seltenen Dissertation Dietmar Wilhelm Soemmerrings (1793-1871), Sohn des berühmten Anatomen, über die horizontale Sektion des Auges von Mensch und Tier.Das Werk enthält eine gedruckte Widmung an seine Lehrer Blumenbach, Himly und Ritter.Die prächtige Farbtafel zeigt einen horizontalen Schnitt in Höhe der Augen durch den menschlichen Schädel mit den relevanten Teilen des Auges und des Gehirns, die im Text im Detail geschildert werden. "Ein wertvolles Seitenstück .... liefert der waagrechte (Schnitt) durch die beiden Augenmitten, den Schädel und das Gehirn, den D.W. Soemmerring in seiner Dissertation veröffentlicht hat. Er stammt von der Leiche einer wohlgebildeten 20jähringen Tirolerin, die nach kurzer Krankheit verstorben war, und wurde zuerst auf eine aufgelegte Glasplatte durchgezeichnet." -Hirschberg.First edition. A monograph on the horizontal section of the eye. This was the doctoral dissertation of D.W. Soemmering, the son of the famous anatomist. The volume is illustrated with some detailed and beautiful copperplates after the autor's drawings. An extract of this book in English translation was published at Copenhagen in 1971 (Becker 347) Hirschberg, 3 464 & 539 Goring. p. 19 Hirsch V, 331."The fascinating diversity of vertebrate ocular structure was first captured in a single work by Soemmering in 1818. Over a century and a half after their publication, Soemmering's engravings still raise a host of intriguing questions regarding how the vertebrate eye works as an optical system. Equally intriguing are the questions which are raised about the functions of the variety of eye shapes and sizes and the subsequent elucidation of general principles which may account for the diversity of eye structures."

        Narrative of an Expedition to Explore the River Zaire,

      1818 - usually called the Congo, in South Africa, in 1816 . to which is added the journal of Professor Smith. First edition. Folding map, one hand-coloured & 12 other plates. 4to. Contemporary half calf, spine gilt, extremities rubbed, some foxing to plates. lxxxii, 498pp. London, John Murray, Tuckey was appointed first lieutenant of the Calcutta in 1802, and sailed out to New South Wales to establish a colony at Port Phillip, an account of which he published on his return: The Account of a Voyage to Establish a Colony at Port Phillip(1805). Captured by the French whilst on convoy duty Tuckey was imprisoned until the peace of 1814, but his imprisonment provided the opportunity to write Maritime Geography & Statistics which was published on his return to England (4 vols., 1815). With such experience Tuckey was therefore an obvious choice to lead an expedition to establish the course of the Congo. Given his extensive periods in confinement however, there were some reservations about his health, yet Tuckey insisted it would improve in a warm climate. Using a purpose-built vessel, the Congo, Tuckey travelled as far as the cateracts, and then preceded overland to discover what lay beyond them. Fears for his health were well-founded. Suffering from persistent illness, he was obliged to return to the Congo and then the store ship Dorothy, which remained in the lower Congo. Tuckey died on board, reportedly from exhaustion. His journal was published unedited by the Admiralty. Hosken, p203. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

First edition, second issue, a superb copy in original boards of the second of only three lifetime publications by Keats, comprising his longest single sustained poem, famous for its opening line: "A thing of beauty is a joy for ever." So savage and malevolent were the reviews of this poem by Blackwoods and the Quarterly--"Lockhart found it exquisitely funny that an apothecary, a fellow who confessedly knew no Greek, who had to read Homer in a translation, should venture on a classic theme" (MacGillivray)--that Keats' supporters thereafter blamed the reviewers for Keats' early death. This copy has the second issue imprint to the verso of the half-title "T. Miller, Printer, Noble Street, Cheapside" and includes both states of the errata leaf (pp. xi-xii) with 5-line errata and 1-line erratum. MacGillivray A2; Ashley III:13; Tinker 1419; Hayward 232

        The Cottage in the Wood; or, The Art of Becoming Rich and Happy. 2nd edn. 18mo.

      Bradford: T. Inkersley. 1818 - Engr. front. after F. James, sculpted by E. Stather; sl. offsetting on titlepage. Later 19th century full crimson crushed morocco, triple ruled gilt borders, raised bands, gilt compartments & dentelles, green & brown morocco labels. Bookplate of George John Armytage. v.g. 69pp. Brontë&apos;s tale emphasises the virtues of Christian conviction and restraint, and shows that a happy and loving relationship can only be achieved when the teachings of God have been truly accepted. Mary, the heroine, steadfastly rebuts the constant approaches of the dashing Mr Bower, as she cannot reconcile her absolute faith with his religious indifference. Only when he has accepted the Gospel can their lives be shared and true happiness be attained. Mr Bower, despite losing his fortune, becomes &apos;rich&apos; through spiritual enlightenment, and the familial comforts that follow. In his preamble, Brontë emphasises his commitment to presenting the truth of human existence, and advises the reader against the artifice and deception apparent in the literature of the day. He is in no doubt as to the damaging nature of the current literary trends: &apos;The sensual novelist and his admirer, are beings of depraved appetites and sickly imaginations, who have learnt the art of self-tormenting, are diligently and zealously employed in creating an imaginary world, which they can never inhabit . The romantic author, overstepping the bounds of probability, will freely indulge in the miraculous . transforming beggars into kings and queens, and kings and queens into beggars . extracting the most unqualified approbation, and the tenderest sympathy from the pusilanimous reader, who has never yet been wise enough to admire the language of truth .&apos; This remains one of the Brontë family&apos;s most difficult titles: two copies are recorded on COPAC, at the BL and Leeds, and there are no records of the title at auction.

        Narrative of an expedition to explore the River Zaire, usually called the Congo, in South Africa, in 1816, under the direction of Captain J.K. Tuckey, R.N. To which is added the journal of Professor Smith; some general observations on the country and its inhabitants; and an appendix: containing the natural history of that part of the kingdom of Congo through which Zaire flows.

      Murray London 1818 - First edition. BECKFORD COPY WITH NOTES. 4to., lxxxii, 496pp., 2 pages ads at end, folding map, 13 engraved plates, one coloured, light toning and foxing to plates as usual, original pink boards, morocco label, light wear, an excellent copy. William Beckford's copy with 2 pages of pencil notes in manuscript at beginning, consisting of 43 lines. The first scientific expedition to the River Congo. An Irish naval officer and hydrographer, Tuckey (1776-1816) was appointed by John Barrow, then second secretary to the Admiralty, to take an expedition to the mouth of the River Congo (Zaire) to see whether it represented the outflow of the Niger into the Atlantic, and more fancifully might provide a route to the riches of the highlands of east Africa. Tuckey sailed form Deptford at the end of February 1816 aboard the Congo. The ship reached Embomma (Boma), the chief port for the river, at the beginning of August. Tuckey continued up river until he reached the cataract of Yellala at which point he had to leave the ship and travel overland with a small party of seamen, scientists, and local porters. One by one the expedition fell prey to Yellow Fever, and after a strike by the porters Tuckey was forced to retreat. The porters fled, supplies were stolen, and when Tuckey got back to the Congo he found that Yellow Fever has decimated the crew. Tuckey himself succumbed to illness and died at the beginning of October, aboard the Dorothy, the sister ship to the Congo. Of the fifty-four passengers and crew who set out, only nineteen survived - altogether a disastrous expedition. The Congo would remain unexplored until the expeditions of Stanley some sixty years later. Gay 3059. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Friend: A Series of Essays

      London: Printed for Rest Fenner, 1818. Second edition. ix, [i], [ii, errata], 356 pp. 8vo. Original muslin boards, black morocco spine label. Rebacked, preserving spine. bookplate. Second edition. ix, [i], [ii, errata], 356 pp. 8vo. Presentation copy, inscribed on the half-title: "To Robert Jameson, in testimony of sincere and affectionate respect from S.T. Coleridge. August, 1821, Highgate." Jameson was a close childhood friend of Coleridge's eldest son, Hartly. Derwent Coleridge describes Jameson in his memoirs of his brother: "One friend he [Hartley] had, a resident in the town, though not a schoolfellow, Robert Jameson, to whom he afterwards addressed a series of beautiful sonnets; but with this exception he had, strictly speaking, no mates, and formed no friendships." At the time of this inscription, Hartley was staying with Jameson, now a lawyer, and he wrote three sonnets to his friend, his first attempts in the form. He prefaced the sonnets "To a Friend," which were published in his 1833 Poems, with a note identifying Jameson as "the favorite companion of my boyhood, the active friend and sincere counselor of my youth." In 1828 Jameson, with James Gillman, edited the 3-volume 1828 Pickering edition of Coleridge's Poems. Wise, Coleridge 22. Provenance: Robert Jameson (presentation from the author)
