         A Voyage of Discovery, made under the orders of the Admiralty, in his Majesty's ships Isabella and Alexander, for the purpose of exploring Baffin's Bay, and inquiring into the probability of a north-west passage

      London: John Murray, 1819. Quarto. (11 1/4 x 8 7/8 inches). [6], xxxix, [1], 252, cxliv pp. Small format errata leaf following the list of plates. 32 maps, coastal profiles, plates, tables or graphs (comprising: 1 engraved folding frontispiece general chart, 2 engraved folding maps by J.

Repaired tears to the first three leaves, small tear to the frontispiece map with small area of loss affecting a few words of the Remark at the top right. Contemporary blue cloth, rebacked with the original spine, red morocco lettering pieceFirst edition of the official account of Ross's first voyage.Ross "commanded the Isabella and the expedition, with Sir W. E. Parry in command of the Alexander. The vessels sailed from England Apr. 18, to Davis Strait and north along the west coast of Greenland to the entrance of Smith Sound; thence southward past Jones Sound to Lancaster Sound; after exploring it, the vessels continued southward, making a test of the breadth of Davis Strait, and returning to England by Nov. 14." (Arctic Bibliography).The expedition is credited with confirming the earlier discoveries of Bylot and Baffin, although they failed to probe deeper into Lancaster Sound, for which Ross was criticized on his return. Geographic discoveries included Melville Bay, Cape York, Prince Regent's Bay (Dedodes Fjord), Whale Sound, and Carey's Island. The scientific work produced some notable results and the present work also provides an account of an important encounter with "Arctic Highlanders" (i.e. Eskimos). In retrospect, Ross's voyage was the first of an important series of British north-west passage expeditions, which explored the Arctic regions in the period between 1818 and 1845.Abbey Travel II, 634; Arctic Bibliography 14873; Sabin 73376; Staton & Tremaine 1152; Hill 1488; Lande 1425.

Finely bound by Riviere & Son in early 20th-century green crushed morocco, spine gilt in compartments with titles direct, triple rule to boards gilt, top edge gilt, inner gilt dentelles, dark blue coated endpapers. Spine faded to tan, otherwise a fine copy, fresh and with handsome margins. With the half title, and 4pp. publisher's advertisements at the rear. First edition, first issue, a fine fresh and generously margined copy with the half-title and advertisements, of Shelley's long poem "Rosalind and Helen", a conversational lament for a disappointed poet-reformer, set on the shores of Lake Como, begun in Marlowe and completed in 1818 at the baths of Lucca in Tuscany. The collection also includes the first book appearance of perhaps Shelley's most famous single poem, the sonnet "Ozymandias", as well as first book appearances of "Lines Written on the Euganean Hills" and the "Hymn to Intellectual Beauty" which was composed in that famously gloomy yet fecund summer of 1816, spent on the shores of Lake Geneva with Mary, Claire Clairmont, Byron and Polidori, from which issued Mary's Frankenstein, Byron's Mazeppa, Polidori's The Vampyre, and also Shelley's "Mont Blanc".

         Kihoki [trans.: Airgun Design]

      - One woodcut illus. of the length of the entire airgun depicted on six pp., another woodcut illus. on two pages, & 7 full-page woodcut illus. 14 folding leaves. 8vo, orig. wrappers (backed in paper, minor marginal worming). Shiga Prefecture ("Goshu"): [Privately Printed by the Author], Preface dated 1819. First edition of a very rare book; WorldCat lists only the 1982 reprint. Kunitomo (1778-1840), a native of the gun-making town of Kunitomo in Shiga Prefecture, was an inventor and scientist of great interest. Having lived in Edo for a period of time, he became familiar with Dutch scientific instruments including telescopes. He constructed Japan's first reflecting telescope in 1831 which had a magnification of 60 and was superior to any brought in by the Dutch traders. This allowed Kunitomo to engage in sunspot observations and the study of the topography of the moon. In 1814, following his town's tradition of gun smithing, Kunitomo began to develop the first Japanese airgun, knowledge of which came from the Dutch in Dejima. In 1818, he was lent to make repairs to a European airgun (made by Scheiffel) which the Dutch traders had given the shogun. In the following year, Kunitomo began to manufacture his own airguns (several of which still exist). The gun was able to fire twenty rounds in a relatively short period of time. The text provides an account of the Dutch airgun ("windroer" transliterated to "wuindoruuru"). Kunimoto describes the theory behind the gun, its parts, how to create air pressure by a pumping action, etc. The gun was lubricated with the oil from camellia seeds. The woodcut which extends over six pages depicts the entire length of the gun. The seven full-page woodcuts show various parts of the gun, and the final two-page woodcut depicts a rifleman showing how to hold, pump, and fire the gun. ?

Much of the material which appears in the later work was contained in the earlier CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE, and must be considered therefore as the earliest work printed within the state relative to the aboriginal history of the area. Copies of the CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE are virtually never offered for sale, and when they infrequently appear the price is justifiably considerable for this Tennessee Rarity, which has to date never been reprinted" - Allen, TENNESSEE RARITIES.

(cgc) T.P.L. 1152. Lande 1425. Sabin 73376. Hill p261. A.B. 14873. Abbey Travel 634. First edition of this famous and notorious voyage; among Ross's officers were, W.E. Parry, James C. Ross, and Edward Sabine. The expedition rediscovered Baffin Bay and its three sounds, confirming William Baffin's discoveries of 1616. Sailing further into Lancaster Sound, Ross was deceived presumably by a mirage, which he believed to be a range of mountains, naming them Croker Mountains. On returning to England his report was at first accepted as conclusive and he was promoted to Captain. A controversy soon arose however, which called his courage into question and opened a lifelong quarrel with the then secretary of the Admiralty, Sir John Barrow. Appended are various scientific and natural history notes. The beautifully coloured aquatint plates engraved by Havell after drawings by Ross, A.M. Skene, H.P. Hoppner, J. Sackhouse, D. Havell, Bushnan, & Thomas Lewin, and which illustrate the work are among the most striking and attractive plates done on the Arctic region. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         The Sham-Robbery, Committed by Elijah Putnam Goodridge on His Own.

      1819 - Fletcher Webster's Copy of an Account of One of His Father's Famous Cases [Trial]. Jackman, Joseph. Goodridge, Elijah Putnam [1787-1851], Defendant. The Sham-Robbery, Committed by Elijah Putnam Goodridge on His Own Person, In Newbury Near Essex Bridge, Dec. 19, 1816: With a History of His Journey to the Place Where he Robbed Himself: and His Trial with Mr. Ebenezer Pearson, Whom he Maliciously Arrested for Robbery: Also the Trial of Levi & Laban Kenniston. Concord, NH: Printed for the Author, 1819. 151, [1] pp. 12mo (6-3/4" x 4-1/4"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in plain wrappers, untrimmed edges. Light soiling and a few minor stains, wrappers worn, but secure. Light browning to text, light foxing in a few places, faint dampstaining to a few leaves, "Daniel Webster, Jr" in pencil to front endleaf and recto of rear wrapper, "Polly Webster" to rear free endpaper. $500. * Only edition. Full account of the several trials connected with this famous Massachusetts case, by one of the accused. Daniel Webster served as one of the defense attorneys shortly after his return to private practice following his two terms in Congress. The respected and well-connected Major Goodridge's accusation of robbery against the witless, low-life Kenniston brothers was supported by popular sentiment, until Webster began his defence, which meticulously unraveled the Major's story and succeeded in gaining the Kenniston's acquittal. The trial was an early landmark in Webster's legal career, and his final address to the jury, first printed here, is considered a classic of Webster's oratory. It was later anthologized. Daniel Fletcher Webster [1818-1862], known as Fletcher Webster, was Daniel Webster's eldest son. Chief Clerk of the U.S. State Department when his father was Secretary of State, he commanded the 12th Massachusetts Infantry during the Civil War. He was killed at the Second Battle of Bull Run. We are unsure of the identity of Polly Webster. Cohen, Bibliography of Early American Law 14017. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

         Travels in various countries of the East; more particularly Persia. Work wherein the author has described, as far as his own observations extended, the state of those countries in 1810, 1811, and 1812; and has endeavoured to illustrate many subjects of antiquarian research, history, geography, philology and miscellaneous literature, with extracts from rare and valuable Oriental manuscripts.

      London Rodwell and Martin 1821 1823 1819 - First edition. 3 volumes 4to., xxvi, 455, 544, 600 pp., 4 engraved folding maps, 82 engraved plates (occasional short tear to fold), some folding, original cloth gilt, rebacked preserving spines, new endpapers, an excellent set. Sir William Ouseley (1769-1842) was secretary to his brother Sir Gore, who was sent to Persia as ambassador in 1810. In 1813 Sir William returned to England, whereupon he began work on this book providing an account of his travels to and in Persia. This scarce work contains much information on the archaeology, manners and customs of the Middle East. The author visited and describes Madeira, Rio de Janeiro, Ceylon, the Malabar coast, Bombay, the Persian Gulf and Bushire, Shiraz, Fasa Darab, Persepolis, Isfahan, Tehran, the ruins of Rai, the Caspian Sea, the province of Mazenderan, Tibriz, Constantinople and Smyrna.

         Texas

      May 1, 1819. Rare Autograph Document Signed “James Cummins,” one page, 7.5” x 3”. [Arkansas County, Missouri Territory], May 1, 1819. In full “Mrs Hemphill I autherize [sic] William Mills to set or subscribe my name to a Bond as security for James Bryan by an appication [sic] of himself being a stranger from your sevt.” Uneven edges, worn at folds, uniformly foxed, tiny holes at folds. Fine condition. In 1811, John and Nancy Hemphill and their family moved from Georgia to the territory that became Arkansas. John established a salt making plant at what is now Arkadelphia, the earliest recorded factory in Arkansas. On May 1, 1819, after his death, his widow Nancy sold the salt works to James Cummins and James Bryan. They paid in cash and two notes. By this document, Cummins authorizes William Mills to sign his name to a bond as security for James Bryan. They failed to make payment on the first note for $1,075 and Mrs. Hemphill sued and obtained a judgment against them. She could not collect and the salt works reverted to the Hemphill estate. The family continued to operate the factory until the 1850s. It is possible that Mrs. Hemphill could not collect the money because Bryan died and Cummins left Missouri Territory for Mexico. James Bryan (1788-1822) had married Stephen F. Austin’s sister, Emily, in 1813. Moses Austin, Emily and Stephen’s father, died in 1821; James Bryan died a year later. Stephen left Missouri to continue his father’s colonization project in Texas. Emily stayed in Missouri and remarried. By 1822, James Cummins (c. 1773-1849) had settled in Texas on the east bank of the Colorado River, opposite the present town of Columbus. On August 23, 1823, he became the first alcalde (chief executive and judge) of the town of San Felipe de Austin, serving four years. Founded by Stephen F. Austin, it was the unofficial capital of his colony. On July 7, 1824, as one of Stephen F. Austin’s “Old Three Hundred,” he was granted six leagues and a labor of land in what is now Colorado and Austin counties. He received the land bonus because he was building a saw and grist mill. In December 1826, a small group of Texas colonists headed by brothers Haden and Benjamin Edwards formed their own government at Nacogdoches, proclaiming it the independent Republic of Fredonia. They made treaties with local Indians. When Mexican troops and members of Austin’s colony, including Cummins, reached Nacogdiches on January 31, 1827, they found that Fredonia had been dissolved; the rebels had fled to Louisiana. James Cummins took an active part in all Texian affairs. He served on committees and drafted petitions. Cummins had an extensive correspondence with Austin. His age prevented him from taking an active part in the Texas Revolution.

         Mémoire sur la versification et essais divers par le comte de Saint Leu, adressés et dédiés à l'Académie française de l'Institut.

Qqs épid. sur les plats. Exemplaire grand de marges. Édition originale rare. Louis Bonaparte (roi de Hollande, comte de Saint-Leu), né à Ajaccio le 4 septembre 1778, fut élevé par son frère Napoléon dont il sera l'aide de camp en Italie et en Égypte. Il épousa Hortense de Beauharnais, qui lui donna trois enfants, dont le futur Napoléon III. Soumis aux ambitions de son frère qui lui écrira d'ailleurs : "Tout le monde sait que, hors de moi vous n'êtes rien !" - il se retirera dans une profonde misanthropie pour se consacrer aux lettres : on a de lui des Documents historiques sur le gouvernement de Hollande (1820), des Poésies (1828). Le présent titre constitue une version antérieure à celle diffusée sous le titre Essai sur la versification, par le comte de S. Leu, Rome et Florence, 1825-1826. Bel exemplaire. PROVENANCE : 1. Annotations postérieures à la mine de plomb sur les gardes : "Exemplaire du duc de Morante" et "Nota : Ouvrage composé & imprimé sous les yeux de Louis Napoléon (roi de Hollande). Cet ouvrage a été entièrement composé par lui, comme un vrai compositeur-typographe". - 2. Vignette ex-libris armoriée de cuir, contrecollée sur le contreplat supérieur : "J. Gomez de la Cortina et amicorum". Joachim Gomez de la Cortina, marquis ou duc de Morante (1808-1868), juriste espagnol né au Mexique, fut l'un des plus grands bibliophiles du XIXe siècle. Sa bibliothèque contenait environ 120.000 volumes (manuscrits, incunables, éditions des XVIe, XVIIe et XVIIIe siècle), la plupart reliés par les meilleurs praticiens de Paris et de Londres. Sa bibliothèque fut vendue à Drouot en 1872. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         A Classical Tour through Italy and Sicily; tending to illustrate some districts, which have not been described by Mr. Eustace in his Classical Tour ... Second edition.

      London, J. Mawman,~ 1819. Two volumes, 8vo. Contemporary half-calf over marbled boards, rebacked with contrasting lettering-pieces to spines; pp. [iii]-xiii, [3], 395; [iv], 358, [6], folding map of Sicily, bound without half-titles; a little browned, otherwise a ery clean copy; ownership inscriptions of Jane Panton to titles. Richard Colt was a wealthy landowner and indefatigable Continental traveler, artist and antiquary. He had spent a good deal of the second half of the 1780s in Europe. 'After a brief return home Colt Hoare resumed his travels in 1788, 'no longer as a tourist but as a systematic antiquarian ... quitting ... the road for the path, the capital for the provinces' (R. C. Hoare, A Classical Tour through Italy and Sicily, 1819, x). He passed through the Netherlands, Germany, Venice, and Florence and finally settled in Siena. He sought to locate the major sites of the Etruscan civilization, then explored the Appian way with his sketchbook and returned south in order to visit the recently publicized Greek ruins at Paestum and those in Sicily. His romantic response to Italy was at once tempered and inflamed by a close interest in the classical authors, who turned his attraction into a passion; virtually nothing he saw was without resonance from a documented source' (ODNB).

         La Moral Universal, ó los deberes del hombre fundados en su naturaleza. Traduccion por D.M.D.M.

      Burdeos, imprenta de Pinard, 1819. - 3 volumes in-12. Frontispice. 2ff. XXXI. 356pp. + 2ff. 308pp. + 2ff. 346pp. Pleine basane racinée, dos lisse orné, pièce de titre et de tomaison de maroquin, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque, un peu frottée, coiffe supérieure du tome III manquante). Rare édition en espagnol, imprimée à Bordeaux par le fameux typographe Jean-Baptiste Pinard (mort en 1831), de "La Morale Universelle" du Baron d'Holbach, l'un des bréviaires de la philosophie matérialiste des Lumières. Il s'agit de la contrefaçon d'une traduction initialement parue à Madrid en 1812. Elle fut commanditée par Guillaume Denné, libraire français installé à Madrid à la suite de l'occupation napoléonienne et qui, à la faveur du vent de liberté qui souffla dans le pays pendant le Triennio Liberal (1820-1823), s'était fait une spécialité de l'importation d'ouvrages français censurés en Espagne. La diffusion de l'ouvrage devait rencontrer de graves difficultés: non seulement l'Inquisition espagnole, considérant la traduction comme "séditieuse et révolutionnaire", la condamna dès le 29 mai 1819 tout comme elle avait déjà condamné l'original français en 1804, mais le traducteur Manuel Díaz Moreno s'estimant lésé la dénonça également et obtint la destruction des exemplaires saisis, ainsi que le paiement de dommages et intérêts par le libraire. Il est intéressant de noter que cette édition est la plus ancienne mentionnée par Palau, qui semblait ignorer l'existence d'une édition espagnole datée de 1812. Il est également curieux de constater que l'Inquisition ignorait apparemment la première parution de la traduction, et semble avoir attendu la publication de cette édition pour la condamner. Frontispice allégorique gravé, avec la légende: "Si quieres ser amado, ama". Papier un peu bruni par endroits. Bon exemplaire. Palau, 115577. Goldsmiths’-Kress no. 23356 (exemplaire avec les titres de relance à l'adresse de Valladolid, 1821). A propos de la famille Denné, voir Diana Cooper-Richet, "Apuntes para una historia de la librería Denné (1785-1885)", in Orbis Tertius, vol. XIX, nº 20 (2014), pp. 148-154.

      Paris, Arthus Bertrand 1819 - in-8, [4]-XVI-464 pp., demi-chevrette cerise à coins, dos lisse orné de guirlandes dorées, chiffre couronné doré au centre des plats (reliure de l'époque). Edition originale de ce recueil de mélanges réédités, à la fois politiques et littéraires, très dans le goût de la Restauration, qui fait d'ailleurs partie d'une série (il y eut Le Spectateur français pendant le gouvernement révolutionnaire, 1795 ; Le Spectateur français avant la Révolution, 1796 ; Le Spectateur français pendant le gouvernement républicain, 1815 ; Le Spectateur français sous le gouvernement de Louis XVIII, 1817, toutes rééditions des articles parus en périodique). Le littérateur Jacques-Vincent Delacroix (1743-1832) avait en effet été le repreneur du Spectateur français, en 1770, lorsqu'il fut abandonné par Marivaux, et il exploita le titre jusqu'en 1830, même si sa continuation n'eut qu'une existence éphémère. Sgard, Dictionnaire des Journaux, II, 1217-1218. Précieux exemplaire de l'Impératrice Marie-Louise, avec son chiffre couronné au centre des plats. O.H.R., 2654-9. [Attributes: First Edition]

        MEMOIRS OF THE LIFE AND CAMPAIGNS OF THE HON. NATHANIEL GREENE.

      Philadelphia. 1819. - xxiii,[1],452pp. plus portrait frontispiece and two folding facsimiles. Original green paper-covered boards, manuscript spine title. Spine chipped, extremities worn. Foxed, some leaves with faint dampstaining, 19th-century pencil inscriptions from "George W. Ford Baltimore Maryland" on front free endpaper, contemporary ink signature reading "E.A. Poe" on front pastedown. A good copy in original condition. Untrimmed. In a half morocco box. Edgar Allan Poe's copy of this engaging biography of Gen. Nathaniel Greene, with descriptions of many of the major battles of the Revolution, in which Greene played a significant role. Poe has signed the front pastedown, "E.A. Poe" in dark ink. During his professional life, as an editor and literary critic, Poe read widely. He reviewed literature and poetry, but also a wide range of historical nonfiction, such as INCIDENTS OF TRAVEL IN CENTRAL AMERICA, THE LIFE OF PETRARCH, MEMOIRS OF LUCIEN BONAPARTE, A LIFE OF WASHINGTON, and NOTICES OF THE WAR OF 1812, among many others. Caldwell's history of Nathaniel Greene would have fit nicely into Poe's voracious reading habits. The contemporary pencil notations from another Baltimore owner on the front free endpaper lends credence to Poe's ownership of the book. An excellent copy of Caldwell's work on Greene, with a fascinating American literary association. SABIN 9897. HOWES C21. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 47494.
