        Voyage of His Majesty's Ship Alceste, along the Coast of Corea, to the Island of Lewchew; with an Account of her subsequent Shipwreck

      London: John Murray, 1818. Octavo, with a portrait frontispiece and five coloured aquatints, early owner's name to title-page; light water-stain in lower margins, two leaves stained, yet very good overall, half calf with spine renewed retaining original papered boards. Second and best edition: the Alceste brought Lord Amherst to China to serve as ambassador, and specifically to negotiate the China trade, at the time a matter of dispute between China and Great Britain.M'Leod, who was surgeon on the ship, describes the voyage out, the various calls in the East Indies including touching at Batavia, surveying off Korea, the visit to Okinawa, another to Manila, and the shipwreck off the coast of Sumatra and subsequent rescue from Malay pirates. A brief but interesting interview with Napoleon at St. Helena is also included in the narrative.This was one of the most popular travel books of its time, portraying the Far East to a much wider audience than had been reached by earlier accounts. The idyllic descriptions of Lewchew undoubtedly appealed to the romantic sensibilities of the era. Indeed, buoyed by its success, M'Leod published another work recounting his time as a slaver, A Voyage to Africa, with some Account of the Manners and Customs of the Dahomian People.

It had been advertised in the Water Birds of 1816, but whether it was, as there advertised, put to press in May 1817, seems doubtful. Letters from Bewick in February and August 1818 show him exasperated and tormented by delays and difficulties in the publication, appealing to William Harvey to return designs entrusted to him, and begging Tipper & Fry to send supplies of paper."

To Which is Prefixed a Letter to Miss Tocker, And to Which is Added an Address to Jury-Men on Their Duties as Jurors, And Especially on Trials for Criminal Libel.

Moderate toning and light foxing to text, title page partially detached but secure. Early signature to head of title page, text otherwise clean. * First American edition, the best account of this notable case. Tocker was prosecuted for libel upon on a local official. She represented herself and was exonerated by the jury, who declared that her accusations were true. "Miss Tocker achieved great fame in radical circles by the spirited manner in which she conducted her own defense. (.) Cobbett, too, was delighted with 'Miss Tocker's triumph,' in part by her appeal to the jury over the head of the judge, the unpopular Sir James Burrough (.) whom Cobbett himself had faced in 1809" (Pearl). Although there are several London editions, the American edition is the only one with additions by Cobbett, which are considerable, including the text of a letter to Tocker dated North Hempstead, Long Island, November 2, 1818 and notes to ten pages of the trial transcript. This edition was reprinted in Boston by Coverly "from the 3rd New York Edition." However, OCLC and Pearl list no edition other than ours.

Numbers 18-20 were written by all three. The remaining 50 were written by Hamilton. (The author's name is listed at the end of each essay in this edition.) The essays aimed to encourage ratification of the proposed constitution by New York State, but were immediately recognized as the most compelling commentary on the most radical form of government the world had yet seen. Most of these essays appeared under the collective pseudonym "Publius" in New York newspapers and journals from October 27, 1787 to early June 1788. The M'Lean brothers published the first edition of The Federalist (along with the text of the Constitution) in 1788 as a two-volume set. The present edition follows the text of the 1802 Hopkins edition, which was the first to include corrections by Jay and Hamilton. Cohen, Bibliography of Early American Law 2818.

      Archibald Constable & Co., London 1818 - lxxiv, [2], 439pp., plus 16-page publisher's catalogue. 226 x 138 mm. Modern buckram. Very good. First collected edition. This collection includes the first printing of Wells's "Account of a female of the white race. . . ," which contains the first recognizable statement of the principle of natural selection. In this study of an albino negro woman, Wells assumed a biological evolution of the human species, drawing an analogy between man's selective breeding of domestic animal varieties and nature's selection of varieties of men best suited to various climates. Darwin was not familiar with Wells's paper when he published the first edition of the Origin, but it was later called to his attention, and Darwin paid tribute to Wells's pioneering statement in the historical introduction to the third edition of the Origin.

Originally published 1815-1826. Only vols. 1-2 reached higher editions, vols. 3-4 were not reprinted - cf. Freeman, R.B. British Natural History Books. ** "William Kirby (19 September 1759 - 4 July 1850) was an English entomologist, an original member of the Linnean Society and a Fellow of the Royal Society, as well as a country priest, making him an eminent parson-naturalist. He is considered the "founder of entomology"... Kirby began planning his Introduction to Entomology, a celebrated title, in 1808. This was the practical result of a friendship formed in 1805 with William Spence, of Hull, and appeared in four volumes between 1815 and 1826. Much of the work fell to Kirby owing to Spence's ill health. The book was illustrated by John Curtis. It reached its seventh edition in 1856... In 1815, Kirby took his MA with the intention of applying for the Professorship of Botany at the University of Cambridge when it should become vacant. A dispute arose as to whether this appointment lay in the grant of the Senate or the Crown. Kirby's Tory political complexion proved a stumbling-block, and in the event John Stevens Henslow was appointed. In 1827, Kirby assisted Henry Denny in arranging the natural history specimens at Norwich Museum. In 1832, he helped to establish an early museum in Ipswich under the aegis of the town's Literary Institute, and presented a herbarium and a group of fossils. With Spence, he helped to found the Entomological Society of London in 1833, with John Westwood as Secretary, and became its Honorary President for life. On that occasion, he presented his own cabinet of insects, collected over more than 40 years, which contained many of the specimens figured in his papers. Kirby was the original President of the Ipswich Museum, 1847-50, fulfilling a project which he had advocated since 1791, and appeared with William Buckland and others at the opening ceremony...." - See Wikipedia

        The Fables of Aesop, and others, with designs on wood by Thomas Bewick.

      printed by E. Walker, for T. Bewick and Son, Newcastle 1818 - 323 wood engravings by Thomas Bewick. First edition, one of 500 large copies on Imperial thick wove paper watermarked 1806, there were also 1500 copies in Royal and Demy sizes. Pp. xxiv, Imperial 8vo, contemporary full calf decorated in gilt and blind, marbled edges, marbled endpapers, rebacked with gilt decorated spine, a strong, good-looking copy. Extra-illustrated by its first owner in 1820 with 56 copper plates from Stockdale's Aesop which are pasted in at the top or bottom of the page with the relevant fable. Armorial bookplate and signature of the Rev. William Turner who has inscribed the book dating his pasting in of the extra engravings as 1820 on the title page. The Rev. William Turner was a Unitarian minister in Newcastle and an intimate friend of Bewick. Turner established two Sunday schools and was a founding member of the Literary and Philosophical Society in Newcastle where he was Lecturer on Natural and Experimental Philosophy and Secretary. The signature in the book matches one reproduced in Jenny Uglow's book on Bewick which has a picture of William Turner reproducing his signature beneath it. There was a so-called 'Thumb-Mark' receipt with many copies which was a leaf with printed Bewick thumb-mark and the facsimiles of signatures and seaweed stamped on it which were run off the press separately designed originally of being given only to subscribers. Tattershall quotes this about the receipts - "We at first sent the Books without them, but as soon as it became known to the public this would not do.it has given us a great deal of unlooked-for-trouble." as people didn't feel their books were complete without them. This copy does not have the thumb-mark receipt. Perhaps this could be explained by it being given to Turner as one of Bewick's close friends or that Turner saw no reason to keep it.

        Anti-Israel. Eine Vorlesung in der geheimen Akademie zum grünen Esel als Eintrittsrede gehalten von Horatius Cocles.

      (Aarau, Sauerländer), 1818.. 58 S. Umschlag d. Zt.. Goed. VII, 244, 19, 6 (falsch: 1819). - Erste Ausgabe der projüdischen Satire des Publizisten, Politikers und Schriftstellers Karl Christian Ernst von Bentzel-Sternau (1767-1849); "Anti-Israel" machte Bentzel-Sternau bekannt und bei nationalistischen Gruppen verhasst. Seine Werke wurden auf dem Wartburg-Fest symbolisch verbrannt. Die heute selten gewordene kleine Schrift ist eine Reaktion auf die antisemitischen Traktate von Friedrich Rühs und Jakob Friedrich Fries, die den Untergang der jüdischen Religion durch Konversion forderten und diese "Kaste mit Stumpf und Stiel ausgerottet" sehen wollten. Bentzel-Sternau zählte zu der kleinen Gruppe aufklärerischer Publizisten, die sich nach dem Wiener Kongress dem aufbrandenden völkischen Antisemitismus entgegen stellten, der 1819 in den sogenannten "Hep-Hep Unruhen" kulminierte. - Unbeschnittenes, auf besserem Papier gedrucktes Exemplar.
