        The Penn Family

      London, 1819. Mezzotint over an engraved and etched base, by Turner after Reynolds. Sheet size: 24 9/16 x 17 inches. In good condition. Trimmed to edge of plate mark, small expertly repaired tears at sheet edges. A charming image, from the golden age of the British mezzotint, of the grand-children of William Penn, the founder and first proprietor of the colony of Pennsylvania This fine group portrait shows the children of Thomas Penn (1702-1775) and his wife Lady Juliana, daughter of Thomas Fermor, the first Earl of Pomfret. The print is dedicated by Turner in 1819 to John Penn, who is included in the portrait as a young child: "This print of the Penn Family is with Permission dedicated to John Penn Esqr,. By his obliged & humble Servt. C. Turner". Just beneath the image are the names and dates of the four subjects: two of whom, John's mother and older sister, had died by the time the print was issued, thus making it a touching memorial, and an emblem of family life as seen from childhood in general. Sir Joshua Reynolds executed the original portrait in the early 1760s when he was at the height of his considerable powers as a Society portrait painter. Charles Turner was an excellent engraver who throughout his memorable career produced an array of wonderful images. Born in Oxfordshire, Turner moved to London in 1795, at which time he was employed by the famous engraver and publisher Boydell. Turner was a versatile engraver working in stipple and aquatint as well as mezzotint. Although, Turner produced a wide array of excellent prints on subjects ranging from topography to genre, his main artistic focus was portraiture. Throughout his career he produced more than six hundred plates, of which about two-thirds were portraits. Turner was a close friend of JMW Turner, and engraved many of the artists' paintings, in addition to engraving some of the plates for 'Liber Studiorum'. As an engraver he combined technical skill with artistic imagination to create beautiful enduring images.

        Vue de la grande Arcade de l'aqueduc de Baktché-Kieuï, et du vallon de Buyuk-Dèrè

      Paris: P. Didot l'ainé, 1819. Etching with engraving by Schroeder after Melling. Neat repairs to splits to old vertical fold. A fine view of the archway of the Baktché-Kieuï aqueduct and the valley of Buyuk-Dèrè, outside of Constantinople, from Melling's grand work 'Voyage Pittoresque de Constantinople et des rives du Bosphore'. Born in Lorraine in 1763, Antoine Ignace Melling, artist and voyager, was trained in architecture and painting. At the age of 19, he went to Constantinople as part of the Russian Ambassador's retinue. After successfully completing several commissions for Hatice Sultan, the sister of Selim III, which included the renovation of her palace at Ortakeï, Melling was employed as the Sultan's architect in 1795. His position as royal architect gave him a privileged opportunity to observe the Ottoman court, and during his eighteen years there, he made many detailed drawings of the sultan's palaces, Ottoman society, and Constantinople and its environs. Within a year of returning to Paris in 1803, Melling published a prospectus for the Voyage pittoresque , the first thirteen livraisons of which were published in 1809. He completed the engravings for this work in 1819. Cf. Atabey 798; cf. Blackmer 1105; cf. Brunet III, 1591; cf. Lipperheide 1431.

        Picturesque Representations of the Dress and Manner of the English. Illustrated in fifty coloured engravings, with descriptions

      London: printed for John Murray by W. Bulmer & Co, 1819. Quarto. (9 3/8 x 6 3/8 inches). 50 hand-coloured aquatint plates by William Alexander. Expertly bound to style in half black straight-grained morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spine divided into six compartments by double gilt fillets, lettered in gilt in the second compartment Provenance: E. Burgoyne (early signature) A fine copy of this fascinating work. This extraordinary work covers a huge range of social types from 'The Sovereign' to a chimney sweep, a judge to the licensed man that watered and fed the horses pulling the hackney carriages. The images and related text on the lower classes in general and the street vendors in particular are probably the most interesting. They picture and describe people who do not appear in conventional histories of the period, and offer a window into real life on the streets at the beginning of the 19th century. Colas notes that the plates are engraved from earlier images by William Henry Pyne, presumably those published in his The Costume of Great Britain (London: 1804, 60 plates). Pyne's work was evidently a major source for this work, as a comparison of the titles to the plates shows, but there are also a significant number of military subjects that are not in Pyne's work, suggesting a variety of sources. The plates have been executed with a refreshing liveliness and freedom that is not usually seen in books of this type, but which is typical of William Alexander's etched and engraved work.

        Tiresias Was bred by His Grace the Duke of Portland in 1816 was got by Soothsayer out of Sledge... At Epsom he won the Derby Stakes beating 15 others among whom were Sultan, Euphrates, The Dominic, &c

      London: R. Pollard & Sons, 1819. Coloured aquatint. Framed in a lovely birds-eye maple frame with gold slip. Mounted in fine washline mount. In excellent condition with the exception of a minor scuff in the upper left corner of image. A fine portrait of the winner of the 1819 Epsom Derby, engraved by James Pollard from his own original drawing. Tiresias is shown just before a race: his groom administers a last minute tonic (!) while his jockey (W. Clift) takes off an overcoat in preparation to mount, and his trainer looks on proudly. In the background can be seen the grand-stand of the race course (possibly Epsom). James Pollard was the youngest son of the London engraver and print-seller Robert Pollard. He began work at the age of fifteen as a painter but quickly turned to engraving as well. In the 1820s his coaching scenes became both fashionable and lucrative. "A stream of coaching paintings followed, many of which he engraved himself. From 1821, he exhibited a small number of pictures at the Royal Academy and the British Institution, which brought him more patrons. Between 1830 and 1840, Pollard also painted a number of racing pictures and some of the earliest scenes of steeple chasing on purpose-made courses, many recording the prowess of the few professional and more amateur riders of the day...[In all his work Pollard took great pains over accuracy, this is particularly true of his large scale works and] it is Pollard's large racing scenes which really take off and into which one can gaze and discover a microcosm of the turf" (Charles Lane, British Racing Prints, p.146). Lane, British Racing Prints, p.146; cf. Selway, James Pollard 1792-1867, p.47 (variant title); Siltzer p. 214.

      Frankfort, 1819. Thick octavos. 20th-century tan cloth, gilt leather labels. Light soiling and wear to bindings, paper labels at foot of spines. Library ink stamp on each titlepage. Light foxing and soiling to text. Lightly tanned. In second volume pp.545 and 547 repaired with tape. A good, solid set. A rare set of the Kentucky statutes compiled by noted Kentucky legal historian William Littell. Littell (1768- 1824) moved to Kentucky in 1801, where he received a law degree and began writing about legal history for the state. The present statutes, published over a period of ten years, were originally intended to be just three volumes (as evidenced by the titlepages) but were later expanded to five. The Shaw & Shoemaker bibliography entry covers the five volumes as one work, though they are cited individually by McMurtrie. These are relatively early for Kentucky printing, which began in Lexington in 1787. Incredibly rare in the marketplace, especially complete in five volumes. The only other complete set we can locate at auction is in the Brinley sale in 1880.

This is probably the most important American case concerning the contract right of corporations. The New Hampshire legislature passed a bill in 1816 that revoked Dartmouth College's original charter and converted the college from a private to a state institution. The college challenged the constitutionality of this act in the state Supreme Court without success, but the U.S. Supreme Court reversed the state's decision in a landmark opinion based on the contract clause of the Constitution. This decision represented "an assurance for all investors in American corporate enterprises that the terms upon which they had committed their capital could not be unilaterally altered by a state. At a time when corporations were first being widely used, it thus encouraged the expansion of American business enterprise. The decision vested the Corporation with indestructible contract rights. even against its creator" (Schwartz, 86, 111). "By construing the contract clause as a means of protecting corporate charters from state interventions, Marshall derived a significant limitation on state authority. As a result, various forms of private economic and social activity would enjoy security from state regulatory policy. Marshall thus encouraged, through constitutional sanction, the emergence of the relatively unregulated private, autonomous economic actor as the major participant in a liberal political economy that ser

        Representación del Señor Rafael D. Mérida, al Congreso de Venezuela. Instalado en la ciudad de Santo Tomas de Angostura, el año de 1819, la que fué mandada archivar por resolucion de dicho congreso.

      Burdeos [Philadelphia?]: En la Imprenta de Lawalle jóven 12mo (23.5 cm; 9.25"). 38 pp.. [1819] Rafael D. Mérida (1762?-1828) began his career as a bureaucrat in Caracas, participated in the early patriot movement, served as minister of Justice under Bolívar in 1813?-14, but turned against the Liberator in 1816. In his Representación, Mérida recapitulates Bolívar's errors, military and political, in a finely honed philippic. He is no less kind to Miranda, whom he nearly accuses of treason. Palau states that this piece was actually printed in the U.S., and the paper on which it is printed would certainly substantiate that claim, as does the fact that it is held by the Library Company of Philadelphia, famous for its collection of Spanish-language books printed in Philadelphia with false imprint information. An extremely rare piece of Bolívariana. => This copy belonged to one of Mérida's family. Original wrappers, one chip; stains on rear wrapper and soil to front one. Once upon a time, folded as to fit in a pocket. Very good condition.

        The North American Sylva, or a description of forest trees, of the United States, Canada, and Nova Scotia, considered particularly with respect to their use in the Arts, and their introduction into Commerce [Translated by Augustus L. Hillhouse]

      Paris: Printed by C. d'Hautel, 1819. 2 volumes in four (as issued), octavo. (10 1/2 x 6 3/4 inches). 2 half-titles (as issued). 156 hand-finished colour-printed stipple-engraved plates after P.J. Redouté (27), P. Bessa (92) and others by Gabriel (108), Bessin (16) and others. (Text with old dampstaining, the plates less so, but with occasional cockling and small spots). Publisher's yellow paper-covered boards, letterpress paper labels to backstrips, uncut (some fading and neat restoration to backstrips) First edition in English, third issue, of Michaux's masterpiece and a classic of American natural history: the most important work relating to American trees published in the 19th century. Michaux's work is based on his and his father's extensive travels in the eastern half of America from the 1790s on. Both men were friendly with Jefferson and other leading figures, who aided them in their work and travels. The masterwork was first published in parts between 1810 and 1813 as Histoire des arbres forestiers de l'Amerique septentrionale . In 1817, Michaux began work on an English translation, issuing a section of the text on oak trees (believed to have been translated by Michaux himself) with no plates, which was then cancelled (MacPhail 16). When the first edition in English was subsequently issued between 1817 and 1819, the first issue contained the text from the cancelled publication, with the remainder of the text translated by Augustus L. Hillhouse of Connecticut. The subsequent second and third issues contained the entire Hillhouse translation printed in Paris by C. D'Hautel (and with page 112 numbered "112-136" to account for Hillhouse's translation being shorter than the previous). The beautifully-executed images, from the same plates in all three issues, were executed by the engraver Gabriel and others after original drawings by the great French botanical artist Pierre-Joseph Redouté and his associate Pancrace Bessa. This third issue in two volumes is the most complete and accurate, with corrections to plate numbers, signatures and pagination. Of the issues containing the present Hillhouse translation, Sabin writes: "Of the various editions with the text in English this, notwithstanding some typographical errors, is the best." And referring to Michaux's work with Thomas Nuttall's continuation, Sabin continues: "It is no exaggeration to remark that it is the most complete work of its kind, and is a production of unrivalled interest and beauty." Bennett, p.76; MacPhail André & François-André Michaux 17c; Meisel III, pp.379-81; cf. Oak Spring Sylva 20; Sabin 48694; cf. Savage, André and François André Michaux (Charlottesville, 1986); Stafleu & Cowan III, 5962.

        The North American Sylva, or a description of forest trees, of the United States, Canada, and Nova Scotia, considered particularly with respect to their use in the Arts, and their introduction into Commerce [Translated by Augustus L. Hillhouse]

      Paris: Printed by C. D'Hautel, 1819. 2 volumes, 8vo. (9 15/16 x 6 1/8 inches). 156 hand-coloured stipple-engravings after P.J. Redouté (27), P. Bessa (92) and others by Gabriel (108), Bessin (16) and others. Expertly bound to style in contemporary French red straight-grained morocco over contemporary red glazed paper-covered boards, the flat spines divided into six compartments with a gilt fillet flanked by a roll tool, lettered in gilt in the second and third compartments, g.e. A fine set of MacPhail's third issue of Michaux's masterpiece and a classic of American natural history. This publication is the most important work relating to American trees published in the 19th century, written by one of the greatest naturalists to work in America. Michaux's work is based on his and his father's extensive travels in the eastern half of America from the 1790s on. Both men were friendly with Jefferson and other leading figures, who aided them in their work and travels. The letterpress for this edition was printed in Paris, as were the engraved plates. The text was printed by C. D'Hautel, the plates were executed by the engraver Gabriel and others after original drawings by the great French botanical artist Pierre-Joseph Redouté, and his associate Pancrace Bessa. The beautifully-executed plates illustrate leaves and nuts or berries of American trees across the entire continent, and are printed from the same plates as the images in the first issue. The sheets of the first reprint of the work were destroyed by fire, but the copper plates were separately stored and thus survived to be employed in a later combined edition issued by Rice and Hart of Philadelphia. The main difference between the first issue and the present set is that the pagination is in two volumes instead of the original three, and some of the plate numbers have been corrected. Of the present issue, translated from the French by Augustus L. Hillhouse, Sabin says "Of the various editions with the text in English this, notwithstanding some typographical errors, is the best." Hillhouse's translation was shorter than the translation for the 1817 edition of the first volume, and therefore page 112 in the first volume of this set is numbered 112-136 in order to maintain the pagination of the succeeding section. Thomas Nuttall later continued the work begun by Michaux, and of the combined work of both men Sabin states: "It is no exaggeration to remark that it is the most complete work of its kind, and is a production of unrivalled interest and beauty." Bennett, p.76; MacPhail André & François-André Michaux 17c; Meisel III, pp.379-81; cf. Oak Spring Sylva 20; Sabin 48694; cf. Savage, André and François André Michaux (Charlottesville, 1986); Stafleu & Cowan 5962.

        Journal of a Route across India, through Egypt, to England in the latter end of the year 1817, and the beginning of 1818

      1819. Small format errata leaf tipped in. Coloured aquatint frontispiece and 11 plates (8 hand-coloured), 1 large folding engraved map with touches of hand colouring, 6 plans and maps (2 with touches of hand-colouring), errata slip tipped-in, lacking half-title. Contemporary diced calf, the flat spine divided into six compartments, green morocco lettering-piece in the second, the others with repeat decoration in gilt, spine chipped at head and foot, joints slightly split Provenance: Mrs. Gartside (pasted-on slip "The gift of Mrs. Gartside 1819"); Thomas Hamilton (early inscription, partially erased "Captain Hamilton / Thomas Hamilton / Captain Half Pay 27th Regiment") First edition of this fascinating account of an overland journey from India to England, written by the eldest son of King William IV. The author was the "eldest of the numerous children" (DNB) of King William IV and Mrs. Jordan (1762 ?-1816). He served in Spain and France during the Napoleonic War before being sent to India where he was appointed "aide-de-camp to the Marquis of Hastings, governor-general and commander-in-chief, in which capacity he made the campaigns of 1816-17 against the Mahrattas. When peace was arranged with the Maharajah Scindiah [sic.] the event was considered of sufficient importance to send the despatches in duplicate, and Fitzclarence was entrusted with the duplicates sent by overland route. He started from the western frontier of Bundelkund, the furthest point reached by the grand army, 7 Dec. 1817, and travelling through districts infested by the Pindarrees, witnessed the defeat of the latter by General Doveton at Jubbulpore, reached Bombay, and quitted it in the ... cruiser Mercury for Kosseir 7 Feb. 1818, crossed the desert, explored the pyramids with [Sir Henry] Salt and [Giovanni Battista] Belzoni, descended the Nile, and reached London, via Alexandria and Malta, 16 June 1818. He subsequently published an account of his travels, [the present work, which exhibited much observation and containing some curious plates of Indian military costumes of the day from sketches by the author." ( DNB ). In addition to his military career, the author served as a privy councillor, a fellow of the Royal Society, and of the Royal Geographical, Antiquarian, Astronomical, and Geological societies of London. He was also a founder member of the Royal Asiatic Society in 1824, was elected a member of the council in March 1825, was for many years vice-president, and was chosen president the year before his death.

        The Cenci.

      [Livorno,] Italy: for C. and J. Ollier, London,, 1819. A Tragedy, in Five Acts. Small quarto (225 × 145 mm). Late 19th-century red-brown full morocco by Ramage, raised bands tooled in gilt to spine forming compartments, second and third gilt-lettered direct between double rules gilt, remaining compartments triple-ruled in gilt, "Italy 1819" tooled to foot in gilt, broad seven-fillet border to covers gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed, floral roll to turn-ins gilt, marbled endpapers. Armorial bookplate of Joseph Turner to front pastedown. Light rubbing to corners, joints and headcaps, very faint foxing towards top edge of title-page, p. 102 and binder's blanks, light marginal tanning to pp. 29-33, small spill-burn to p. 9 partially obscuring one letter, otherwise the very occasional spot chiefly restricted to margins. These flaws minor: an excellent, notably wide-margined copy in a fine Victorian binding. First edition, one of 250 copies printed; scarce in commerce, with the second, London edition (the only second edition of his own Shelley lived to see) more usually encountered. Shelley's verse tragedy proved an unexpected sensation on publication despite its action being far too lurid for the London stage. He been fascinated by the story of Beatrice Cenci and Guido's portrait of her in the Colunna palace at Rome, and originally intended the latter to be copied as a frontispiece for this book. He worked exceptionally fast on his version of the tragedy, starting in May and ending in August of his annus mirabilis, the same year he wrote Prometheus Unbound, The Masque of Anarchy, and the "Ode to the West Wind". The book is excellently produced, handsomely printed on thick laid paper: "It has a few errors of the press incidental to the Italian compositors' ignorance of English … but on the whole it seems to me a preferable text to the second edition ?- a text more like the absolute production of Shelley" (Forman).

In 1800 he was apprenticed to the leading bookbinder Henry Walther. After spending five years in the forwarding department Lewis sought but was refused promotion to the finishing shop; undaunted Lewis began to practise finishing work at home. After leaving Walther, Lewis worked as a journeyman in several other shops, eventually setting up a business in Scotland Yard, later to premises in Denmark Court, and finally to Duke Street, St. James's. With C. Kalthoeber he was employed by William Beckford on the Fonthill Abbey library.

        Views in Sussex. Consisting of the most interesting landscape and marine scenery in the rape of Hastings, from drawings by J.M.W. Turner, R.A. Illustrated by historical descriptions. The plates engraved by W.B. Cooke, and published under the auspices of John Fuller, Esq. of Rose Hill. The scientific and explanatory notices of the drawings by R.R. Reignage, A.R.A

      London: Published by John Murray...and W.B. Cooke, 1819. [24], 20pp. With five engraved plates after J.M.W. Turner and an engraved map, extra-illustrated with two further tipped in plates after Turner (Hurstmonceux Castle and Bodiham Castle). Tipped in at front are a list of the plates and a notice advising on the publication date of the second part of this work, which was never published. Contemporary pink cloth, titled in gilt to upper board. Rubbed and faded, marking to upper board. Splitting to upper joint towards foot of spine, a little splitting to both joints at head. Pencilled ownership inscription and bibliographical notes of A.W.F. Fuller John 'Mad Jack' Fuller (1757-1834), Sussex MP, plantation owner, philanthropist and patron of the arts and sciences. An avid fan of the by then successful Turner's work, Fuller commissioned the artist to paint 13 watercolours of his residence, Rosehill, and the surrounding countryside, including the Brightling Observatory, during the years 1816-18. Five of these were published here alongside letterpress commentary and an engraved map; 'Battle Abbey', 'Brightling Observatory', 'The Vale of Ashburnham', 'Pevensey Bay', and 'The Vale of Heathfield'. Engravings of the remainder were presumably intended to adorn in the planned continuation. The extant engraved plates of Turner's work, executed by W.B. Cooke and republished in various works during the nineteenth-century, proved more enduring than the publication itself, which was neither completed nor this volume reprinted. From the library of A.W.F. Fuller (1882-1961), anthropologist and collector whose ethnographic collections are now in the Field Museum, Chicago, who appears to have taken great pride in and paid much attention to this work, perhaps because of his namesake's connection to its initial publication. . First Edition. Large folio.

      Paris, 1819. Antique half calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, leather label. Some light foxing and faint dampstaining. Signed by the author, as usual. Very good. This is the primary source book for the history of the ill-fated effort of a group of Napoleonic veterans to establish a colony in Texas. The French group, under Gen. C.F.A. Lallemand, landed at Galveston in January 1818 and attempted to establish a colony on the Trinity River. The effort failed that summer, and the remaining starving colonists retreated to New Orleans. Despite its short life, the colony was the center of an important episode in the maneuvering between Spain, the United States, and the not yet independent state of Mexico, for control of Texas. The French settlers dreamed of establishing a new Napoleonic empire in the New World, and with more support they might have succeeded. This is one of four contemporary French books on the Champ d'Asile colony, and Streeter calls it "an indispensable source and by far the best of the group." It consists of the diaries of Hartmann and Millard, a list of colonists, and Lallemand's proclamation, as well as a folding plate showing the layout of the colony. A rare and important piece of early Texana.

        Viagem de hum peregrino a Jerusalem, e a visita que fez aos lugares santos. Por hum indigno filho do Serafico Patriarcha S. Francisco, F.I.D.I.C.

      Lisbon, Impressão Regia, 1819. - 8°, contemporary quarter straight-grained crimson morocco over orange pebbled cloth boards (some wear at corners, slight chip near head of spine), smooth spine, gilt, gilt letter. Woodcut Portuguese royal arms on title-page. Finely engraved folding plate. Very minor occasional soiling. Overall in very good condition. Old ink inscription "Bastos" in lower blank margin of title-page. 292 pp., folding engraved plate. *** FIRST EDITION. In his visit to the Holy Land, Fr. João toured all the major sites in Jerusalem, as well as the Sea of Galilee, Bethlehem, Mt. Zion, and a few other places outside the city. At the end (pp. 233-71) he gives an account of the persecution suffered by the religious orders there since the mid-seventeenth century. Fr. João mentions, for example, an uprising of the people in 1756 when, in order to keep the members of several religious orders safe, the governor of the area had to lock them in the church of the Holy Sepulchre for seven months, where they lived on bread, water and herbs (p. 247). In 1799, when Bonaparte was invading Egypt, about 3,000 Turks attacked a monastery, shouting "Death to the Franks, who are spies for the French" (p. 251). Fr. João argues that it is Portugal's duty to support the religious orders in Palestine, because the Spanish have been seriously weakened by the recent war.The engraved frontispiece (unsigned) shows scenes from the lives of Christ and the Virgin, the resurrection, and two Franciscans kneeling outside the Holy Sepulchre. The @Viagem appeared in at least three later editions: Lisbon 1822, 1831 and 1837.*** Innocêncio III, 387: without collation. Fonseca, @Pseudónimos p. 113. Not in Palha. Not in Monteverde, which lists the second edition (2953). Not in Azevedo-Samodães, Ameal or Avila-Perez.

        Costume Caractéristique De France

      1819. first edition. Superb and Very Lively Depictions of French Scenes in Vivid Colors[PEAKE, Richard Brinsley]. Costume Caractéristique De France... The Characteristic Costume of France; from drawings made on the spot, with appropriate descriptions. By an Artist recently returned from the Continent. London William Fearman, 1819. Large quarto (12 x 9 3/8 inches; 306 x 238 mm.). Text in French and English (partially uncut). [xii], 37, [1, blank] pp. Hand-colored aquatint frontispiece and eighteen plates, etched by Sheridan, aquatinted by R. Havell. Text watermarked 1818. Original drab boards uncut, front cover with original printed paper label. Expertly rebacked to style. Housed in a later quarter brown morocco clamshell case.A fine uncut copy of the first edition in book form of this charming work which amply demonstrates Peake's abilities as both an artist and a writer.Superb and very lively depictions of French scenes in vivid colors. The scenes include; Palais Royale, A Trip to Versailles, La Morgue, Figures at St. Denis, Le Grimacier, Interior of a Coffee House, A Group at Calais, and many others. This work was first issued in six parts in 1815-1816, under the title French Characteristic Costumes [Abbey Travel I, 85]. It was subsequently re-issued under the present title, in a slightly different order, in a single volume, in 1819. The book really does live up to the promise of its title, showing both men and women from various economic strata, in both rural and urban settings. The artist and illustrator, Richard Brinsley Peake worked for the engraver James Heath from 1809 to 1817, and went on to pursue a successful career as a dramatist and author. The text and the plates form a pleasing whole: the images are charming and lively, whilst the insightful text also offers an historical perspective on an early nineteenth-century Englishman's view of the French.Abbey Travel I, 87; Colas II, 2297; Lipperheide, 1155.
