        Historically Significant and Important Period Manuscript Report of the Naval and Military Actions in Chile and Peru]: Estado que en el dia de la fecha tiene el Vireinato de Lima; Provincias del de Buenos Ayres recuperadas y concervadas por el Ejercito del alto Peru; y finalmente en el que ce halla el Reyno de Chile [The State at this date of the Viceroyalty of Lima, the Provinces of Buenos Aires, taken back by the Army of Alto Peru; and finally the State of the Kingdom of Chile].

      Lima 1818 - Lima, 1 November 1818. Small folio (ca. 31x21 cm). 6 pp. Brown ink on laid paper with watermarks 'A' and 'PLA'. Text in Spanish in legible hand writing. Later marbled paper wrappers. Manuscript in very good condition. Historically significant and important period report of the final stage of the Chilean (1810-1826) and Peruvian (1811-1824) Wars of Independence, compiled by Spanish colonial authorities. Our copy apparently belonged to Joaquín de la Pezuela, 1st Marquis of Viluma (1761-1830) who was a viceroy of Peru during the War of Independence: there is a handwritten remark "Es copia Pezuela" in the end of the text. The document is divided into three parts ("Vireinato de Lima", "Egéreito del Perú", and "Reyno de Chile") and starts with the report of advance of the Royalist forces (3400 men under command of General Mariano de Osorio) from Callao to Talcahuano in order to regain Chile. Then follow the descriptions of Battle of Cancha Rayada (18 March 1818), Battle of Maipú (5 April 1818), San Martín's famous Crossing of the Andes (January-February 1817) et al. A large part of the text is dedicated to the actions of the Royalists' army in Alto Peru under command of José de la Serna e Hinojosa (1770-1832). The author reports on the numbers of armed forces in different provinces of the Vireinato de Lima and gives a picture of the wartime Peru from north to south. Very important is the extensive material on the naval war near the coast of Chile and Peru, and the actions of the First Chilean Navy Squadron which was formed in 1817-1818 and eventually "terminated Spanish colonial rule on the south-west coast of South America" (Wikipedia). The report lists 12 vessels of the Royalists' naval forces (Las fuerzas de mar): frigates Esmeralda, Cleopatra, Presidenta and Venganza, brigantines Pezuela and Potrillo, corvet Sebastiano et al. There are notes on the condition and amount of guns of each vessel. A separate list is dedicated to the enemy vessels and also details their artillery: Lautaro and Cumberland (bought from the British East India Company); corvette Coquimbo (bought from the US), four brigantines, and seven corsairs (Anglo-American and French). The document reports on the blockade of Valparaiso in March-April 1818, and naval actions, e.g. the attack on Spanish corvette Resolution near Callao by the corsair force consisting of the British, American, Portuguese and Irish sailors (19 October). The text is concluding with the news that the naval reinforcement for the Royalists has departed from Spain: frigate Especulation left Cadiz on the 21st of May with 6 officials and 200 men from the Regiment of Cantabria, a part of a larger force which will embark in Callao and will go immediately to reinforce the army of Alto Peru. Frigate Maria Isabel will increase the maritime forces destined to blockade Valparaiso. The author has no doubt that "Our maritime force should succeed in destroying the rebels and will give us advantage in the reconquista de Chile".

        A Catalogue of Manuscripts, Formerly in the Possession of Francis Hargrave, now Deposited in the British Museum

      Printed by G. Woodfall, London 1818 - 4to. [iv], 188 pp. Original drab boards (a little worn, expertly rebacked). Edges uncut and partially unopened. Ex-libris stamps in blind from the (now-defunct) Theological Institute of Connecticut. Some minor spotting, but overall in very good condition, the paper quite crisp First Edition. Highly interesting catalogue of the legal manuscripts collected by Francis Hargrave (1741-1821). In 1813 Hargrave's collection of 499 manuscripts, together with his library of books, was purchased for £8,000 for the British nation by a vote of the House of Commons. The catalogue describes the manuscript portion of the Hargrave collection. Hargrave was the most prominent of the five advocates who appeared on behalf of James Somersett in the case which determined, in 1772, the legal status of slaves in England. This was Hargrave's first trial and secured his reputation as one of most brilliant advocates of his day. Thereafter, he specialised in legal history and commentary, and published many works of legal history. Meanwhile, he quietly amassed a substantial collection of legal books and manuscripts. Our copy contains a 3-page presentation letter from Rev. Josiah Forshall, at that time Keeper of Manuscripts at the British Museum, to the "Lord Bishop of London" (i.e. Charles James Blomfield). On page 3 Forshall inscribes "a list of such books as you are entitled to from this place in virtue of your office." The present volume is included in Forshall's list.

        NARRATIVE OF AN EXPEDITION TO EXPLORE THE RIVER ZAIRE, Usually called the Congo, in 1816, under 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 the Zaire flows.

      London John Murray 1818 - First edition. Illustrated with the large folding map and 13 engraved plates, of which one is coloured by hand. Large 4to, later antique wine coloured cloth, gilt lettering to the spine, t.e.g. 4ff., lxxxii, 498 pp. A large copy, quite clean and well preserved, crisp and unpressed, the colour plate in good order, some typical mellowing or spotting associated usually with the plates, upper cover detached and easily refurbished on request. SCARCE FIRST EDITION. An attempt to explore the Congo River and to find a link with the Niger and investigate the possibilities for trade on these arteries. Smith from Kew Gardens and other botanists were along to collect plant seeds. Tuckey died on the support ship. "Tuckey was one of the most observant of travelers. He had served in the Eastern Seas, and made a voyage to Brazil and Port Philip in 1803. Captured on his return voyage, he like Flinders, was detained as a prisoner by the French for several years. He subsequently compiled a valuable work on ‘Maritime Geography’ before setting on the government expedition to explore the Congo, then by many conjectured to be the outlet of the Niger. The results of this expedition were most disastrous, Captain Tuckey and many others dying within three months after entering the river". "An introductory view of African discovery preceeds the narrative of Tuckey and Smith and a series of appendices follow: these include (1) a vocabulary of the Malemba and Embonma languages by Cat. Tuckey. (2) Observations on the Genus Ocythioe of Rafinesque by Dr. Leach. (3) On Sepia and Vermes Testacea with plates. (4) Observations on Prof. Smith’s collection of plants by Robert Brown, etc." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Narrative Of An Expedition To Explore The Zaire River, Usually Called The Congo. In South Africa. In 1816 To Witch Is Added, The Journal Of Professor Smith; Some General Observations On The Country And Its Inhabitants; An Appendix: Containing The Natural History Of That Part Of The Kingdom Of Congo Through Which The Zaire Flows

      John Murray, London 1818 - 498 pages. 26 x 21 cm. Thirteen plates, one colored by hand and large fold-out frontispiece map, plus half title and publisher adverts. An Irish born English naval officer captured by the French on a voyage from St. Helena in 1805, he suffered an imprisonment of nearly nine years. Promoted to rank of commander in 1814, he was later assigned to lead an expedition to explore the Congo River in 1816 to learn if there was a connection between the Congo and Niger basins. Most of the crew including Tuckey succumbed to tropical fever or exhaustion and died in their efforts. Whereas the expedition failed it inspired interest by the British to continue African exploration. The accounts of the expedition gleaned from officer's reports, incomplete journals, etc., provided useful information on the natural history and inhabitants of the region. WOOD p. 603. Hand colored plate clean, balance mostly browned, lacking upper fore-edge corner of title page not affecting text, some quires misbound but present, text clean and fresh. Binding border panels in gilt and blind, marbled endpapers and edges. Contemporary gilt decorated full calf rebacked with most of original spine laid-down. Very good.

      - Independence in Venezuela, describing the martyrdom of Capuchin monks in Guayana by revolutionary forces; a remarkable rarity, with the folding plan on the Missions. [1818]. Imprenta de Felipe Tolosa. In 4to (220 mm x 153 mm). 35 + folding plate. Modern red leather, boards with gilt fillet, spine lettered in gilt, virtually perfect. A fine copy, entirely unopened and uncut. First edition. A remarkable rarity and an exhaustive description of the murder of Capuchin Missionaries in Guyana; considered martyrdom. In the early 1817 Simón Bolivar entered Guayana, one of the main centres of royalist opposition to the first Venezuelan Republic, and by the summer had succeeded in ousting the royalist forces. Vich provides a first-hand account of the persecution and execution of the thirty capuchin fathers who had played an important role in encouraging resistance to the revolutionaries. The happening destroyed a prosperous indigenous community founded by the Order in the region. Exceedingly rare on the market, a copy was sold at Sotheby´s in 1994 for 460 GBP.

        Autograph Signed Letter (ALS) to Sir Stafford Northcote Bt Dated April 29 1862 Written In the Course of Disraeli’s Attack on Gladstone’s Record As Chancellor of the Exchequer

      - DESCRIPTION OF ITEM: Heading his letter ‘Grosvenor Gardens 28 Apr 62’, twice Conservative Prime Minister writes to his eventual successor as Leader of the Conservative Party in the House of Commons Sir Stafford Northcote (1818-1887), ‘My dear Northcote, I hear from Lord Palmerston that the financial measures will not come on tonight: certain civil servants set (?) the business. Yours sincerely D.’ [Note: Northcote actually refers to this communiqué from Disraeli in Hansard in connection with the Deferment of the Second Reading of the Customs and Inland Revenue Bill - Hansard Apr 62 vol 166 cc 972-3]. HISTORICAL CONTEXT: Chapter VII volume IV of Monypenny and Buckle’s ‘The Life of Benjamin Disraeli’ (1916) helps to provide some context to the letter. With the Conservative Party in opposition to Palmerston’s liberal administration and Gladstone serving as Chancellor of the Exchequer, the letter is written at the start of the second phase of Disraeli’s concerted attack on Gladstone’s time in office. Continued expenditure on defence had produced a dire budgetary situation with war taxes continuing to be used in peace time and the threat of the increasing use of income tax - an anathema to Disraeli and also to many on Palmerston’s backbenchers. Having heavily criticised Gladstone’s record in the ‘Ways and Means - Committee’ debate a few weeks earlier (Hansard vol 166 cc 637-98), Disraeli used the second reading of the Customs and Inland Revenue Bill on 8th May to launch a savage attack on Gladstone which forced Palmerston to make voting on the Bill a vote of confidence in the Government in order to get it though. A close ally of Disraeli in this campaign, Northcote would go onto succeed Disraeli as Leader of the Conservative Party in the Commons when Disraeli was elevated to the Lords some years later in 1876. DETAILED CONDITION REPORT : 4pp with two pages of text written in black ink, each page measuring 4.5 inches x 7 inches.

        ALBUM AMICORUM/FREUNDSCHAFTSBUCH aus der Familie Schumann.

      Zwickau, Halle, Leipzig und Reinsdorf (?) 1818-1825.. quer-8° (Blattgröße 19,50 x 11,50 cm). 41 Blatt und 20 Tafeln m. fein von Hand colorierten Kupferstichansichten (davon 15 bei F. Wagner um 1815, tlw. Schnorr sc. vorwiegend aus dem Landkreis Thüringen), mit zus. 23 meist mehrzeiligen Stammbucheintragungen von Freunden, Kommilitonen und Familienangehörigen. Ungebundene, lose Sammlung (je 1 Bogen aus 2 Bll. u. 1 Tafel in Leimbindung) mit umseitigem Goldschnitt ohne Einbanddecke, Papier durchgeh. gebräunt u. z. Tl. stärker stockfleckig; teilw. etwas abgegriffen u. vereinzelt eselsohrig; in einem dem Alter entsprechenen, aber insgesamt guten und sauberen Erhaltungszustand.. Stammbuch aus der Familie Schumann. Die Annahme scheint dadurch eindeutig gesichert, dass Henriette Weber geb. Schumann (1777 - gest. nach 1849), die jüngere Schwester von Robert Schumanns Vater, sich als Tante und deren Tochter Friederike sich als Cousine benennt. Aufgrund der räumlichen Erstreckung der Eintragungen käme jedenfalls einer der älteren Brüder von Robert Schumann als Freundschaftsbuchbesitzer in Frage, am ehesten wohl der zweitälteste Bruder des Komponisten, Carl (auch Karl) Schumann (1801-1849). Carl war Buchdrucker und Verleger in der Bergstadt Schneeberg im sächsischen Erzgebirge und wurde nach dem Tod des Vaters für Robert eine Art Vaberersatz. Für Carl würde sprechen, dass die Zwickauer Eintragungen aus den Jahren 1818 stammen, die späteren Eintragungen aus Halle und Leipzig. Carl könnte sich nach Beendigung des Gymnasiums im Jahre 1818/19 zur weiteren Ausbildung nach Halle und Leipzig begeben haben. Bei zwei von den identifizierten Einträgern, der eine 1802 geboren, der andere 1804, könnte es sich in beiden Fällen um Mitschüler Carls handeln; damals verblieb man je nach Fotschritt ein, zwei oder auch drei Jahre in einer der vier Gymnasialklassen Quarta, Tertia, Sekund und Prima (die spätere Einteilung in Ober- und Untersekunda etc. war in Sachsen noch nicht bekannt). Was weiters für Carl spricht ist auch die Namensgleichheit von einem der Beiträger (Joh. Fr. Aug. Colditz) mit Pauline Colditz (1818-1879), der zweiten Gattin von Carl Schumann, die er 1836 ehelichte. Liste der Beiträger in chronoligischer Reihenfolge unter Angabe von Ort und Datum der Eintragung: Spangenberg Friedrich Robert - Zwickau, 12.01.1818; Hochmuth C. August - Zwickau, 14.01.1818; Marack Johann Gotthilf, stud. litt. - Zwickau, 15.01.1818; Lindner Christian Friedrich - Zwickau, 15.01.1818; Rascher (?)

        Histoire Naturelle des Orangers

      Paris: Imprimerie de Mme. Hérissant le Doux, Imprimeur ordinaire du Roi [-], First edition 1818 - "Pp. (iv), 280, with 109 fine stipple-engraved plates printed in colors and finished by hand, with occasional touches of gum arabic, after Poiteau, by V. Bonnefoi, Chailly, Dien, Gabriel, Legrand, T. Susémihl and Texier. Contemporary light brown calf, neatly rebacked with spine laid on, the covers with a wide decorative border elaborately tooled in gilt and blind, the spine in six compartments with raised bands, black morocco lettering-piece in the second compartment, the others with repeat overall tooling, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt, folio (338 x 252 mm). The title displays the wood-engraved arms of the Duchesse de Berry; there is a two page dedication to the Duchesse de Berry in the frontis matter. A very important monograph on citrus fruit; the work depicts an amazing variety of oranges, limes, lemons and the precursor of the grapefruit - many images show the complete fruit as well as the cross-section. It was this work that Sacheverell Sitwell, writing in Great Flower Books (1990), rates as highly as anything by Redouté, Prévost or van Spaëndonck. He describes Risso and Poiteau's work in glowing terms as "a Hesperidean holiday among orange and citrus groves, for it contains exquisite drawings of every known variety of orange, lemon, and grape fruit fruits that hang from the leaves like suns and moons, with every kind of rind, and shaped like gourds or pitchers or again, authentic globes of fire, whether pale, as of moonlight, or red-gold like the sun but half-hidden, as in poetry, in its own green shade. A beautiful and inspiring work " (p. 22-23). For further information, see Nissen BBI 1640; Oak Spring Pomona 76 and Stafleu and Cowan 9248." Some occasional light marginal foxing to parts of text, verso of some plates are lightly browned, heavier browning or spotting to six plates only, calf binding with slight edge wear and a few old mars, a tight, clean copy in very good condition in an attractive period binding.

        The Miscellaneous Works of Tim Bobbin, Esq., and Plebelan Politics

      - Manchester - J. Slack and T. Sowler, 1818 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A fantastic collection of satirical character sketches and images from the 'Lancashire Hogarth'. Including John Collier's miscellaneous works, 'containing his view of the Lancashire dialect, with large additions and improvements: also, his poem of the flying dragon and the man of Heaton; together with other whimsical amusements in prose and verse. To which is added a life of the author'. Bound in with Robert Walker's 'Plebelan Politics, or The Principles and Practices of certain Mole-Eyed Maniacs Vulgarly Called Warrites. By way of Dialogue betwixt two Lancashire Clowns. Together with Several Fugitive Pieces by Tim Bobbin the Second'. Featuring a frontispiece to each title, and numerous further plates featuring Collier and Walker's humorous illustrations and caricatures. Binder's label of T. Sowler, Manchester, to front pastedown. John Collier, [pseud. Tim Bobbin] (17081786), satirist and caricaturist. In 1746 there appeared under the name Tim Bobbin, Collier's first and most famous work, A View of the Lancashire Dialect, or, Tummus and Mary, the earliest significant piece of Lancashire dialect to be published. Subsequently expanded to include a glossary, illustrations, and other material, it went through seven editions in his own lifetime and was prolifically pirated both before and after his death. Collier now developed his trade as a painter, increasingly with the help of his sons, producing inn signs, painted panels, and grotesque caricatures which were widely distributed, reaching the American colonies via a Liverpool merchant. He promoted and distributed his own work, travelling all over northern England collecting and delivering orders and commissions for books and pictures and consuming the proceeds as he went. In 1773 was published his Human Passions Delineated, an upmarket edition of his caricatures which acted as a catalogue, in which he described himself as the Lancashire Hogarth. Two local radicals, Robert Walker (writing as Tim Bobbin the Second in 1796) and James Butterworth (as Paul Bobbin in 1819), later attempted to appropriate his reputation to the radical cause. DNBCondition: In a half calf binding with marbled boards. Externally sound although rubbed. Internally, firmly bound. Generally bright and clean aside from some very slight marginal age-toning with just a few scattered spots, and some off-setting from the text. Copperplate ink signature to recto of frontispiece and title of Miscellaneous Works. Overall: VERY GOOD..
