        A New Hieroglyphic Bible With Above Four Hundred Cuts

      Edinburgh: Oliver & Boyd, 1818. Early Edition. Hardcover. Very good. 12mo. 108pp. Publishers original drab brown cloth; upper board blocked in gilt with title within a floral design. Ink name on front pastedown. Cloth soiled, binding lightly shaken, gilt rubbed else a very good copy. The date of publication is taken from the Advertisement, page 4. This seems to be the first Oliver and Boyd printing of a hieroglyphic Bible and the second Edinburgh printing after the Doig and Sterling edition of 1814. The accepted publicaton date for this Bible is 1818; three other known copies are known to have been issued either in quarter leather and marbled paper boards, or in printed card covers. Our copy is in what is clearly publisher's cloth with gilt blocked on the upper board. This combination is unknown before 1826. It is likely, then, that the textblock, while printed earlier, was bound after 1826. Exceedingly scarce. Protected in a custom clamshell box.

Overall, Very Good.. The Rhode Island First Light Infantry Company was formed in 1818 as a state militia company based in Providence, R.I., and was affiliated with the Second Regiment of the Rhode Island militia. It became the First Light Infantry Regiment in 1863. This regiment saw no active duty, with its activities more in consonance with a social club vice a well-trained military unit. However, per the RIHS notes on this organization, the 1st Light Infantry Company did play an important role in providing trained soldiers when circumstances required. The Company helped suppress the Olney's Lane race riots in 1831, primarily by arresting white rioters. This riot is discussed on pages 159 through 165 of Volume 1. The Company was also involved in suppressing the Dorr Rebellion Ð a fomentation and later a short-lived, armed insurrection led by Thomas Wilson Dorr agitating for changes to Rhode IslandÕs electoral system. The failed attempt to take the arsenal in Providence occurred on May 19th, 1842. Opinions differ as to the time frame for the Rebellion, but it is clear that agitation continued from 1839 through 1843. In the case of this particular Rebellion, there were militia members on both sides of the fight! Pages 61 through 66 of Volume 2 discuss the events of May 19th, 1842. Many of the Company members also served in the American Civil War in Companies C and D of the First Regiment, Rhode Island Detached Militia. The activities recorded herein, written in pen and by necessity by many different individuals given the span of time involved, are detailed and informative accounts of the daily, weekly, and monthly meetings of the Company, most often held at the Armory in Providence. Much is of the mundane, though special events such as the 40th anniversary of the Declaration of Independence are given longer write-ups, as is the case with the riots and rebellion mentioned above. Nevertheless, and understandably, most entries consist no more than a paragraph or two, sometimes more if the names of the attendees are given, etc. Often, a newspaper article that mentions the Company, has been affixed to the closely written mss pages, further documenting the CompanyÕs history. Together, these 4 volumes are the primary source for the history of the First Light Infantry Company, and are invaluable for understanding the inner workings of the Company and their [occasionally] significant role in Rhode Island history. . Vol 1, p. 293/294, with drawing of the south end of the ballroom of the City Hotel, Providence [per pencil note to page]. The occasional odd drawing [e.g., a hand with index finger extended] throughout.

        [A Series of Picturesque Views of the River Thames. From the drawings of Wm. Havell. Dedicated to the commissioners of Thames navigation, by ... Robt. Havell]

      [London: Robert Havell, 1818]. Large folio. (22 7/8 x 17 3/4 inches). 12 hand-coloured aquatint plates by Robert Havell after William Havell, each with black ruled border at the edge of the image and a buff wash border, on thin card, all on guards. Expertly bound to style in dark green straight-grained morocco, covers with fine decorative border composed from fillets and an arabesque roll-tool of stylized foliage, spine in eight compartments with double raised bands, the bands highlighted in gilt, lettered in the second and fourth compartments, the others with repeat decoration in gilt made up from various small tools, gilt turn-ins, gilt edges. A very fine copy of this important series of Thames views: a visual essay in the picturesque from one of the great watercolour landscape artists of the time, with plates by Audubon's engraver. The publication of the present work, present here in its rare second edition, marked the start of a long series of important publications by Robert Havell that were to culminate with his work on Audubon's Birds of America. The British Dictionary of National Biography describes William Havell as being "one of the best earlier painters in watercolour," an artist of the highest calibre whose images are "distinguished by pure and delicate colour." Born in 1782 in Reading, England, he traveled widely in his search for subjects: Wales, the Lake District, Europe and eight years in India and Burma. However, the present series drawn from the river that flowed through his home town is arguably his best work. The panoramic views betray the artist's intimate understanding of his subject, he ably captures both the river as a calm focus for scenes of great picturesque beauty, and the river as a vital highway for transport and trade. The plates, here bound without the title, offer the viewer a visual journey: from Oxford and the famous skyline of the Colleges, through the busy market town of Abingdon, to Wallingford (a view taken in 1810 whilst the bridge was being repaired), then two wonderful truly panoramic views of the Thames Valley, one viewed from higher ground at Streatley, and a second of Caversham Bridge near Reading. The journey continues with bucolic views near Park Place in Oxfordshire, the weir viewed from Marlow bridge and Clifden spring and woods, near Maidenhead. Taplow is next, then an interesting view of Windsor Castle before the renovations showing a skyline that is strange yet familiar. The journey ends with a fine view of Datchet Ferry near Windsor and a spectacular view of Staines church in newly emerged sunlight, whilst the rain clouds behind are lightened by a beautifully observed double rainbow.

        Paris et ses alentours, à plus de trente lieues à la ronde; ouvrage national de gravures

      Paris: Firmin Didot, 1818. Large folio. (28 3/4 x 21 inches). Letterpress title (verso blank), 1p. dedication to Louis XVIII (verso blank), 1p. 'avant-propos' (verso blank), 30ll. explanatory text (all but two printed recto only, one leaf preceding each plate). 30 fine uncoloured aquatint plates by and after Damame-Démartrais. (The 12th plate, a view of Notre- Dame, with a repaired tear in the outer margin). Contemporary blue/green straight-grained morocco-backed paper-covered boards, the flat spine divided into six compartments by double gilt fillets, lettered in the second compartment, old repairs to spine. A beautiful and rare large- scale work of views of Paris and its environs. According to Dulau's 1828 catalogue this work was originally sold in parts. They offered the present uncoloured issue at £20 (item 12456), whilst the issue with the plates printed in colours and finished by hand (item 12457) was on sale at £40. An idea of the book's current rarity can be garnered from the fact that OCLC list only a single copy: that in the Victoria & Albert Museum's "National Art Library" in London, and even the distinguished Bobins collection contains only a fragmentary work (with 5 plates in two states). Damame-Démartrais is now best known for his Collection complete des divers jardins et points de vue des maisons de plaisance imperiales de Russie.... [Paris, 1811]: a result of the nine years he spent living in Moscow and St.Petersburg between 1796 and 1805. Paris born, Damame- Démartrais was apparently taught by David but is now celebrated for his drawings and aquatints. The present work, dedicated to King Louis XVIII, was prompted by the artist's wish to record the new open vistas in Paris and its environs: each of the beautiful large-scale plates is accompanied by brief text which gives relevant details of the subject. The artist also notes in the 'avant-propos' that this work fills a gap, as there were no other comparable books of views of Paris and its environs. The majority of the plates are of places in Paris, but, as the title suggests, there are also a significant minority of the views of beautiful locations outside the city. Cf. Bobins The Exotic and the Beautiful II, 516; A Catalogue of the Library of the Athenæum (1845) p.85; A. Dulau & Co. Catalogue of Books in Foreign Languages , A. Dulau & Co. (1828) p.600; F. E. Joubert, père. Manuel de l'Amateur d'Estampes (1821) p.386; Le Blanc Manuel (1856) II, p.84.
