        The Drunkard's Looking Glass. Reflecting a Faithful Likeness of the Drunkard, in Sundry very interesting Attitudes

      [Philadephia]: For the author, 1818. Pamphlet, octavo, 63 pages. Sixth, improved edition, and the first illustrated edition. With an engraved frontispiece, possibly by William Charles, depicting a drunken rider felled by a low hanging branch. With thirteen woodcuts in the text by William Mason. The rare wrapper, here with the front panel present only, contains yet another woodcut, likely also by Mason. A temperance tract, by the famous Parson Weems, inventor of the George Washington cherry tree incident. A series of well written cautionary tales, often quite humorous. "As the wan countenance of the lust-worn harlot, becomes still more dark and dismal at the sight of a young female, fresh and blushing in all the charms of virgin innocence, so does the soul of a filthy drunkard experience a quickened hell, at the site of a gentleman well drest and breathing the cheerful air of cleanliness and sobriety." The pamphlet is worn, with a small one-eighth inch hole in the engraved frontispiece, and one page torn through the text due to a careless page separation. The illustrated wrapper panel is worn but the text and illustration are unscathed. In all a decent survival. [Shaw & Shoemaker 46749 (MWA, PPL); Hamilton 1019; Sabin 102467; American Imprints 46751].

        Zur Geschichte und Literatur des Schachspiels, Forschungen

      viii+260+[ii ad] pages with diagrams and figures. Small quarto (10 1/4" x 7 1/4") bound in half leather with gilt lettering to spine and front cover. (Bibliotheca van der Linde-Niemeijeriana: 242) 1st edition.Tassilo, Baron von Heydebrand und der Lasa (known in English as "Baron von der Lasa" was an important German chessmaster, chess historian and theoretician of the nineteenth century, a member of the Berlin Chess Club and a founder of the Berlin Chess School (the Berlin Pleiades). His name is usually abbreviated as "von der Lasa", as this is how he signed his letters. However both contemporary and more recent writers have used other abbreviations, such as "von Heydebrandt" (which is a mis-spelling) and "Der Lasa". The Prussian King (later Emperor) William I made a joke out of the confusion by saying, "Good morning, dear Heydebrand. How is von der Lasa doing?" Von der Lasa was born 17 October 1818 in Berlin. He studied law in Bonn and Berlin. From 1845 he was a diplomat in the service of Prussia. His career took him to Stockholm, Copenhagen, and Rio de Janeiro, among other places. He retired from the diplomatic service in 1864, and thereafter devoted himself to the world of chess. He played several matches and defeated the strongest masters in the period 1843-1853. He won against Henry Thomas Buckle 2-1 (1843), Adolf Anderssen 4-2 (1845), Johann Löwenthal 6-1 (1846), John Schulten 4-1 (1850), Anderssen 10-5 (1851), and Howard Staunton 7-6 (1853). To the modern chess world he is known above all as the main author of the Handbuch des Schachspiels (first published in 1843). His friend Paul Rudolf von Bilguer, responsible for the original plan, had died in 1840, with the work still in the early stages. Von der Lasa took over, and, in a noble gesture of friendship, put his friend's name as author. In later editions of the Handbuch, in German commonly called der Bilguer, von der Lasa was named as co-author. In 1850 von der Lasa published in the Deutsche Schachzeitung (German Chess Magazine) a call for an international chess tournament, the first ever, to be held in Trier. Instead the first such tournament was held in 1851 in London. Von der Lasa did not play in tournaments, being usually busy as an organizer, but played well in off-hand games against such leading masters as Howard Staunton and Adolf Anderssen. He was also a renowned chess investigator and theoretician, publishing numerous articles in the German Chess Magazine and, in 1897, his great work Zur Geschichte und Literatur des Schachspiels, Forschungen (Researches in the History and Literature of Chess). In the course of his researches he traveled extensively (including a trip around the world in 1887–88) and accumulated a comprehensive chess library, to which he published a catalog in 1896. In 1898 the German Chess Federation saluted his tireless efforts and accomplishments by conferring on him its first honorary membership. One of von der Lasa's last services was to encourage HJR Murray to pursue further researches into the early history of chess. Von der Lasa died on 27 July 1899 in Storchnest bei Lissa, now in western Poland. His library is still intact at Kórnik Castle near Poznañ.Condition:Spine ends scuffed, corners bumped and rubbed, soiled, extremities rubbed, label on front cover else a good to very good copy.

Je compte 26 gravures dont une dépliante mais certaines m'ont peut-être échappée mais n'ayant pas le détail bibliographique et n'étant pas toutes numérotées il m'est impossible de dire si elles sont toutes là (si vous avez la référence n'hésitez pas à me l'envoyer, merci) bien qu'il n'y ait pas d'évidences que certaines aient été arrachées. Les douze reliures sont en bon état mais tout de même usées aux coins, bordures et surfaces, avec parfois quelques petits manques aux extrémités des dos, quelques écorchures à certains plats, etc. Les intérieurs sont en bon état sinon mieux sans rien de remarquable sinon quelques rares déchirures en marge et à l'occasion certaines pages oxydées et rares roussures. Les livres sont solidement reliés. Les planches sont en excellent état. Un ensemble acceptable de ces rares Oeuvres Complètes.
