        Voyage of his majesty's ship Alceste, along the coast of Corea, to the Island of Lewchew; with an account of her subsequent shipwreck. 2nd edition.

      - London, John Murray, 1818.Contemporary half calf (extremities of spine sl. dam.).With portrait frontispiece and 5 hand-coloured aquatints. (8),323 pp.* Second and best edition, first published in 1817; with the bookplate of Bob Luza. - ' The Alceste and the Lyra conveyed Lord Amherst's embassy to China, which was the second attempt by the British to open trade with China, after the first effort by Lord Macartney. The Alceste reached Rio de Janeiro in 1816, and then proceeded to the Cape of Good Hope. After a short visit there, Batavia was touched at in order to deliver dispatches for the evacuation of the country and reinstatement of Dutch control, after which the Alceste continued on to China. While the matters of the embassy were proceeding, the ships sailed on an expedition for the survey and exploration of the west coast of Korea and the Ryukyu Islands. In the course of this work a long visit was made to Okinawa. The people were very hospitable to the sailors and gave them a kindly, though careful, reception. On the return voyage, after taking Lord Amherst on board at Macao, Manilla was visited, and then, in Gaspar Strait off the coast of Sumatra, the Alceste struck a submerged reef and became a total loss. The crew and passengers reached the small adjacent island of Pulo Leat safely. Lord Amherst proceeded to Batavia to fetch help while the sailors fortified their island retreat, named Fort Maxwell after their captain. A long and vivid account is given of their experiences, of how they were attacked by Malay pirates, and of their final rescue. On their return voyage, St. Helena was visited, and an interesting account is given of an interview with Napoleon. Dr. M'Leod, the author of this account, was ship's surgeon on board the Alceste' (Hill p.407). - (Some foxing).Hill 1169; Abbey, Travel, 559; Borba de Moraes II, p.507; Lust 378; Cordier, B.S., col. 2108; Huntress 188C; Thomson, The Exotic and the Beautiful, 298; Löwendahl 792.

        Lettres de Madame de S?vign?

      Paris - J. Blaise et al., 1818. Paris - J. Blaise et al., 1818 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A collection of letters written by and to Madame de Svign, the French aristocrat and socialite famed for her witty and lively writing. First edition. Volume one only of two. Can command up to 1000 complete. Mme de Svign corresponded with her daughter for nearly thirty years. A clandestine edition, containing twenty-eight letters or portions of letters, was published in 1725, followed by two others the next year. Pauline de Simiane, Mme de Svign&#39;s granddaughter, decided to officially publish her grandmother&#39;s correspondence. Working with the editor Denis-Marius Perrin of Aix-en-Provence, she published 614 letters in 1734-1737, then 772 letters in 1754. The letters were selected according to Mme de Simiane&#39;s instructions: she rejected those that dealt too closely with family matters, or those that seemed poorly written. The remaining letters were often rewritten in accordance with the style of the day. This raises a question of the letters&#39; authenticity. Of the 1,120 known letters, only 15 percent are signed, the others having been destroyed soon after they were read. However, in 1873, some early manuscript copies of the letters, directly based on Mme de Svign&#39;s originals, were found in an antique shop. These accounted for about half of the letters to Mme de Grignan. Mme de Svign&#39;s letters play an important role in the novel In Search of Lost Time by Marcel Proust where they figure as the favorite reading of the narrator&#39;s grandmother, and, following her death, his mother. Including a folded fascimile plateof one of her letters, as well as an engraved frontispiece of the author and a second frontispiece depicting the four coats of arms of her family members. Also features an engraved plate depicting the chteau de Bourbilly. Condition: In full calf binding with gilt detailing. Externally sound, with some rubbing to board and extremities. Some loss to the back board. Internally, firmly bound. Armorial bookplate to front pastedown bearing the name, &#39;Michael Holland&#39;. Pages generally bright, with some scattered foxing throughout. Overall: GOOD..

        Narrative of a voyage to senegal in 1816;

      London: Hery Colburn, 1818. With colored frontispiece portrait of King Zaide and a full-page plate showing the Plan of the Medusa&#146;s raft. Contemporary half-calf over marbled boards, re-backed, edges worn; interior mildly browned due to paper stock, but overall a very good copy. First edition in English (translated from the French). This thrilling account of the infamous shipwreck of the Medusa was co-written by two men with firsthand knowledge of the event. After running adrift on a sandbank off the coast of Africa, nearly 150 men and one woman piled onto a crude raft in a desperate attempt to make it to shore - a distance of nearly 60 miles. When they were finally rescued thirteen days later, mutiny, murder, famine, and injury had so depleted their numbers that only 15 were left to tell the tale. & & This work was the most important and influential narrative of the incident, which captured the imagination of the French people and ignited anti-imperial sentiments. The artist Géricault consulted personally with Savigny and Corréard after reading the French version, immortalizing the event in his famous painting, The Raft of the Medusa, now housed in the Louvre. Géricault even included the two authors&#146; likenesses on the canvas itself. The book was extremely popular in England as well as France, published there by the well-respected Henry Colburn (see Miles, pp. 187-188).& & Savigny (1793-1843) was a doctor on board the Medusa. After his harrowing experience, Savigny published a thesis about the effects of hunger and thirst (Observations sur les effets de la faim et de la soif éprouvées après le naufrage de la frégate du Roi la Méduse en 1816, 1818).& & Corréard (1788-1857) was an engineer and geographer on the Medusa. He later became involved with an anti-government group and an outspoken abolitionist.& & A note on the verso of the half-title requests contributions to a subscription recently opened for the relief of the survivors. The publisher &#147;will feel great pleasure in becoming the medium for transmitting their subscriptions to the unfortunate sufferes.&#148;&

        Don Quixote de la Mancha.

      T. Cadell and W. Davies, London 1818 - First edition with the Robert Smirke engraved plates. Octavo, 4 volumes. Bound in full red leather, gilt tooling to the spine, front and rear panels. All edges gilt. Frontispiece of Don Quixote. Illustrated throughout by Robert Smirke. In very good condition. Don Quixote tells the tale of a man so entranced by reading about the chivalrous romantic ideals touted in books that he decides to take up his sword and become a knight-errant himself, with the aims of defending the helpless and warding off the wicked. With his somewhat confused laborer-turned-squire, Sancho Panza, they roam the world together and have adventures that have haunted reader's imaginations for nearly four hundred years. Don Quixote is generally recognized as the first modern novel. Over those years, it has had an incredible influence on thousands of writers, from Dickens to Faulkner, who once said he reread it once a year, "just as some people read the Bible". Vladamir Nabokov is quoted as saying, "Don Quixote is greater today than he was in Cervantes's womb. [He] looms so wonderfully above the skyline of literature, a gaunt giant on a lean nag, that the book lives and will live through [his] sheer vitality. He stands for everything that is gentle, forlorn, pure, unselfish, and gallant. The parody has become a paragon." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Bishop Burnet&#39;s History of His Own TimeFrom the Restoration of King Charles II to the Conclusion of the Treaty of Peace at Utrecht

      London - J. Nunn et al., 1818. London - J. Nunn et al., 1818 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A copy of Burnet&#39;s history of post-Civil War England, written during his own lifetime. Revised and corrected edition. Gilbert Burnet (1643 1715) was a Scottish theologian and historian, and Bishop of Salisbury. He was fluent in Dutch, French, Latin, Greek, and Hebrew. Burnet was respected as a cleric, a preacher, and an academic, as well as a writer and historian. He was associated with the Whig party. Burnet began his History of My Own Time in 1683, covering the English Civil War and the Commonwealth of England to the Treaty of Utrecht of 1713. The first volume was published in 1724, ending before the Glorious Revolution. In 1734 the second volume was published, taking the History to the Treaty of Utrecht. While not free from egotism and some party feeling, it is written with a sincere desire for accuracy and fairness, and it has largely the authority of an eye-witness. The style, if somewhat lacking in dignity, is lively and picturesque. Complete in four volumes. Condition: Rebacked in crushed morocco with the original boards. Externally sound, though with some wear to the original leather. Some marks to the boards also. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright, with some light spotting to first and last few pages.

        NARRATIVE OF THE TRAGICAL DEATH OF MR. DARIUS BARBER AND HIS SEVEN CHILDREN, WHO WERE INHUMANLY BUTCHERED BY THE INDIANS, IN CAMDEN COUNTY, GEORGIA, JANUARY 26, 1818. ALSO AN ACCOUNT OF THE CAPTIVITY AND SUFFERINGS OF MRS. EUNICE BARBER, WHO WAS CARRIED AWAY CAPTIVE BY SAVAGES, AND FROM WHOM SHE FORTUNATELY MADE HER ESCAPE SIX WEEKS AFTERWARDS

      Boston: David Hazen, [n.d., ca. 1818].. Boston: David Hazen, [n.d., ca. 1818].. 24pp. including handcolored frontispiece. Contemporary plain paper wrappers, stitched. Manuscript title on cover, spine partially perished. Bookplate of Frank Cutter Deering inside front cover. Contemporary ownership inscription on titlepage. Internally clean. Very good plus. Untrimmed. In a morocco box and cloth chemise. A fascinating and extremely rare Indian captivity, featuring murder and abduction by Creek Indians, and also playing a role in the growing reputation and legend of Andrew Jackson. On the evening of January 26, 1818, Mrs. Barber witnessed the slaughter of her husband and children by Creek Indians, "thirty or forty...standing over us with uplifted tomahawks!" Six of her children were scalped in their beds, and her ten-year-old daughter was murdered while Mrs. Barber held her in her arms. Eunice Barber was then taken back to the Indians&#39; village, a six-day trek across mountains and through swamps and thickets, where she was dressed in the garb and paint of a native. She was "witness to many of their brutal acts, and endured hardships, which it would have been impossible for many females to sustain; indeed human imagination can hardly figure to itself a more deplorable situation." She remained a captive for six weeks, during which she witnessed the torture of numerous captives, and was forced to take part in a battle against a rival tribe. During that battle she took the opportunity to surreptitiously kill her Indian master, who had been wounded. She was given to another master and kept prisoner a while longer before finally escaping into a nearby swamp and then through wilds for seven days before being rescued by a woodsman. The whole tale is told in the voice of Eunice Barber, and her name is signed in print at the conclusion of the text. There are two known editions of the captivity narrative of Eunice Barber: the present edition published by David Hazen in Boston, with no date but believed to be 1818, and an edition published with no imprint information at all, and also believed to have been done in 1818. It seems impossible to establish priority between the two. This edition contains a frontispiece showing Mrs. Barber pleading for the life of her daughter, which is not present in the other edition. It is intriguing to note that the titlepage prints Gen. Andrew Jackson&#39;s name in nearly as large a type as that of Darius Barber. Jackson at this time was blazing a path through the Indian tribes of the Southeast. Though he flaunted and broke most laws of military conduct and many orders from his superiors, he was seen as a hero among the white settlers of the region. In this and other Indian captivity narratives, Jackson is trumpeted on the titlepage as the rescuer or avenger of the dead and captured whites. In the present edition of the Barber captivity, a caption below the title reads, "It may be a gratification to the reader, to learn that the said tribe of Savages has been since exterminated by the brave and intrepid Gen. Jackson, and the troops under his command." Furthermore, in her text, Barber goes out of her way to describe the hatred which the Creeks feel for Jackson. She writes: "Among those who held me in captivity, there appeared to be many of the Creek nation, who harboured great inveteracy against the American troops for depriving them of their lands, particularly their commander in chief, General Jackson, whom, as all the neighbouring tribes had engaged to join them in the war against the whites, they vainly hoped soon to have in their power. So confident did they appear to be of this, that they really held meetings of consultation, to devise means how and in what way they should inflict the most excruciating torture upon him: his heart, it was pretty generally agreed, should be divided into as many detached pieces as there should be tribes engaged in the war, and a piece presented to each, while his scalp was to be the property of Francis, their distinguished leader. Thus had they agreed to dispose of their much dreaded enemy, General Jackson; little thinking then that this distinguished commander was so soon to march fearlessly into the very heart of their village, lay their wigwams in ashes, and compel them to sue for peace, which he has actually since done." This paragraph is a rather incongruous addition to the Barber narrative, since Jackson played no direct role in her escape, and was only a post-facto avenger. Jackson&#39;s prominent role on the titlepage - and this paragraph in the text - indicates that the publisher of the present edition of the Barber narrative may have been a Jackson partisan and a supporter of his actions in the First Seminole War, and intended the works to serve a political purpose in justifying Jackson&#39;s highhanded conduct. Extremely rare and desirable. Howes indicates only four perfect copies known; OCLC locates six copies, at Yale, University of Michigan, the Huntington, University of Minnesota, University of Virginia, and Simon Fraser University in British Columbia. The Siebert copy of this edition realized $20,400 in 1999. HOWES B118, "b." FIELD 77. SABIN 51835. SIEBERT SALE 449.

        Seven Documents pertaining to Drawbacks for cargo shipped by John Jacob Astor in 1819 and 1821

      The first set of four documents, dated 1818 and 1819, pertains to drawbacks requested for the shipment of eight cases of guns from Amsterdam, through New York, for the &#147;North West Coast of America.&#148; The guns were received on board the brig Carolina in New York in 1818 by an attorney representing Vasques, Manson & Cleeman, and I like to think they were bound for Chile and Bernardo O&#146;Higgins&#146; new republic. In any event, one of the four documents is signed twice by Astor&#146;s son William B. Astor, and once in New York as &#147;John Jacob Astor & Son&#148; in a handwriting that looks a great deal like John Jacob Astor&#146;s own signature. The other three documents pertain to drawbacks requested for the shipment of &#147;two hundred bales of camlets&#148; (a valuable fabric) to Canton. This group is signed once by William B. Astor and again bears the &#147;John Jacob Astor & Son&#148; in what could very possibly be Astor&#146;s signature. The firm of Astor and Son was formed to engage in the China trade, and was managed by William B. The lot

His enthusiasm for horticulture in particular, both in his own garden at Sayes Court and in his correspondence and publications, translated continental ideas into England and laid the groundwork for the English landscape garden of the eighteenth century.

      The Author, Ballston Spa [NY] 1818 - Second edition (and the first Ballston Spa edition, originally published the previous year in Philadelphia). Original quarter calf and papercovered boards. Very faint tidemark to the edges of the first few pages, some modest rubbing and light wear, a sound, very good or better copy. Bookplate of Ransom Cook, which covers Cook's easily readable signature. Cook was a longtime resident of Saratoga Spa (Ballston Spa is the county seat of Saratoga County) who, in addition to being an inventor, opened a carpentry and cabinetmaking shop there. He was responsible for the building of Dannemora (later Clinton) State Correctional Institution and was eventually named warden there. His advocacy for the humane treatment of inmates was unusual for its time. This famous title, a survey of slavery in the United States by a Philadelphia physician, is especially scarce in the fragile, original binding. See this book in 3D on our site.
