Frankfurt am Main 1964, S. 276 - "Dr. Baruch macht seinen Freunden und Allen, mit welchen er die Ehre hat, in Verbindung zu stehen, die Aenderung seines Namens bekannt." Von jetzt an nennt er sich Dr. Ludwig Börne - überaus seltenes und bedeutendes Dokument zur Lebensgeschichte Börnes (1786-1837) - Zur Vorgeschichte: Die den Frankfurter Juden 1811 gewährte Rechtsgleichheit im neugeschaffenenen Großherzogtum ermöglichte es Juda Löw Baruch, einen Beruf in der Verwaltung zu ergreifen. Auf Vermittlung seines Vaters wurde er Polizeiaktuar in Frankfurt. Schon 1815 wurde die alte Ordnung restauriert, was für ihn die Zwangspensionierung bedeutete. 1818 ließ er sich evangelisch taufen. Seinen Namen änderte er kurz davor in Ludwig Börne. Sein bisheriger Name verwies seiner Meinung nach zu eindeutig auf seine alte Religionszugehörigkeit. (nach Killy 2, S. 84 und wikipedia)

        The Trial of Miss Mary Ann Tocker, For an Alleged Libel, On R Gurney

      , 1818. 1818. A Victory for Free Speech [Trial]. Tocker, Mary Ann, Defendant. Cobbett, William [1763-1835], Reporter. The Trial of Miss Mary Ann Tocker, For an Alleged Libel, On R. Gurney, Jun. Vice-Warden of the Stannery Court, In the County of Devon; Which Trial Took Place Before Mr. Justice Borrough, One of the Judges of the Court of King's Bench, On Wednesday, The 5th of August, 1818, At the Town of Bodmin, In the County of Cornwall. 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. New York: Printed for William Cobbett, By Clayton & Kingsland, 1818. 48 pp. Octavo (7" x 4-1/2"). Disbound stab-stitched pamphlet. 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.

        Prospectus and Specimen of an Intended National Work.Relating to King Arthur and His Round Table

      London - John Murray, 1818. London - John Murray, 1818 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A mock-heroic Arthurian poemfrom English diplomat and author, John Hookham Frere. Third edition of cantos I and II, andFirst edition of cantos III and IV with separate title page. Frere intended to comprise the most interesting particulars relating to King Arthur and his Round Table. William Tennant in Anster Fair had used the ottava rima as a vehicle for semi-burlesque poetry five years earlier, but Frere's experiment is interesting because Byron borrowed from it the measure that he brought to perfection in Don Juan. Condition: In a half calf binding with marbled boards and gilt lettering to the spine. Externally, a trifle rubbed with light fading to the head of the front board. Front hinge is slightly strained but firm. Internally, firmly bound, bright but with the odd spot and intermittent foxing. Copperplate ink signature to the title page. Overall: GOOD ONLY..

        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.

        Autograph Letter Signed to Charles K[irkpatrick] Sharpe (1781-1851, artist and author), ½-page 8vo with address and a fine impression of the black seal, no date [1818].

      - Inviting Sharpe to dine and to hear from the Duke of Buccleuch ('gout permitting') 'the earliest account of the opening of the Iron Chest'. Castle Street [Edinburgh]. The search for the Scottish regalia, the Honours of Scotland, effectively the Scottish Crown Jewels, had interested Scott and more than one Duke of Buccleuch for many years. The iron chest containing them was discovered and opened in Edinburgh Castle on 4 February 1818 in Scott's presence, and his own account, given at length in a letter to John Wilson Croker three days later is the best evidence for what happened that day and for the history of the regalia, with the added benefit of coming from the hand of a master of historical narrative:'. The extreme solemnity of opening sealed doors of oak and iron, and finally breaking open a chest which had been shut since 7th March 1707, about a hundred and eleven years, gave a sort of interest to our researches, which I can hardly express to you, and it would be very difficult to describe the intense eagerness with which we watched the rising of the lid of the chest, and the progress of the workmen in breaking it open, which was neither an easy nor a speedy task. It sounded very hollow when they worked on it with their tools .'The discovery of the Regalia has interested people's minds much more strongly than I expected, and is certainly calculated to make a pleasant and favourable impression upon them in respect to the kingly part of the constitution. It would be of the utmost consequence that they should be occasionally shown to them, under proper regulations, and for a small fee. The Sword of State is a most beautiful piece of workmanship, a present from Pope Julius ii to James iv. The scabbard is richly decorated with filigree work of silver, double gilded, representing oak leaves and acorns, executed in a taste worthy that classical age in which the arts revived. A draughtsman has been employed to make sketches of these articles, in order to be laid before his Royal Highness [the Prince Regent]. The fate of these Regalia, which his Royal Highness's goodness has thus restored to light and honour, has on one or two occasions been singular enough. They were, in 1652, lodged in the Castle of Dunnottar, the seat of the Earl Marischal, by whom, according to his ancient privilege, they were kept. The castle was defended by George Ogilvie of Barra, who, apprehensive of the progress which the English made in reducing the strong places in Scotland, became anxious for the safety of these valuable memorials. The ingenuity of his lady had them conveyed out of the castle in a bag on a woman's back, among some hards, as they are called, of lint. They were carried to the Kirk of Kinneff, and intrusted to the care of the clergyman named Grainger and his wife, and buried under the pulpit. The Castle of Dunnottar, though very strong and faithfully defended, was at length under necessity of surrendering, being the last strong place in Britain on which the royal flag floated in those calamitous times. Ogilvie and his lady were threatened with the utmost extremities by the Republican General Morgan, unless they should produce the Regalia. The governor stuck to it that he knew nothing of them, as in fact they had been carried away without his knowledge. The Lady maintained she had given them to John Keith, second son of the Earl Marischal, by whom, she said, they had been carried to France. They suffered a long imprisonment, and much ill usage. On the Restoration, the old Countess Marischal, founding upon the story Mrs. Ogilvie had told to screen her husband, obtained for her own son, John Keith, the Earldom of Kintore, and the post of Knight Marischal, with £400 a-year, as if he had been in truth the preserver of the Regalia. It soon proved that this reward had been too hastily given, for Ogilvie of Barra produced the Regalia, the honest clergyman refusing to deliver them to any one but those from whom he received them. Ogilvie was made a

        POPULAR FAIRY TALES; or, a Liliputian Library; containing twenty-six choice pieces of fancy and fiction, by those renowned personages King Oberon, Queen Mab, Mother Goose, Mother Bunch, Master Puck, and other distinguished personages at the court of the fairies. Now first collected and revised by Benjamin Tabart. With twenty-six coloured engravings.

      vi,[1], 2-353pp. With 13 plates each bearing 2 hand-coloured engravings. Contemporary, or slightly later, half calf over marbled boards. One plate slightly cut-down where previously loose; wood-engraved plate, which is integral to page 353 missing as usual; front hinge repaired; else an excellent copy of this very difficult title. Moon 166 [3]. This collection, first published in 1818, is one of the most elusive and difficult early fairy tale collections to find complete. So far as one can ascertain only the first edition of 1818 had the wood-engraved image at page 353, but all recorded examples of that edition lack at least one other plate. Most later editions ? as in this copy ? do not require the image on page 353, despite the plate list calling for it; but, equally, nearly all copies lack at least one other plate (2 images).
