London: Published by R. Ackermann, 1819-1820. First edition, first issue, in the Original Parts. One of seven hundred and fifty copies. (plates unnumbered without later dates per Tooley).Large quarto (14 1/4 x 11 5/8 in; 361 x 298 mm). 1-32; 33-64; 65-96; 97-128; 129-160; xiv, [2], 161-178 pp. Complete with the list of subscribers (pp. [v]-viii).

(Abbey). ?"Containing a complete History and Picturesque Description of a portion of Country so full of curious and interesting circumstances, as well as so resplendent for its landscape, grandeur, and beauty. The Work will be embellished with Twenty-four highly finished and coloured Engravings, from Drawings expressly made by an eminent Artist, resident near the Banks of the Rhine, and habitually familiar with every part of it…The romantic, beautiful, and ever-varying Scenery of this River forms a distinguished feature of every modern foreign Tour; and no one can consider himself as an accomplished traveller who is not more or less acquainted with it…Baron von Gerning, whose literary character is so well established in Germany, has undertaken to write the Historical Part; and Mr. Schutz, so well known as an artist, will furnish the Drawings?" (Ackermann?'s prospectus for the completed work, printed on the rear wrapper of Part I and others).?"There are definitely later issues of the book…and these can be recognized by having plate numbers at the top right-hand corner. The impressions in these issues are poor and the colouring less good?" (Abbey).Abbey, Travel, 217. Martin Hardie, pp. 107-108 and 312. Prideaux, pp. 337 and 375. Tooley 234.

      New-York: for the Author, by Kirk & Mercein, 1819. 8vo, original blue boards, rebacked, with original backstrip label laid down. 228, i-[lx], [10], lxi-lxiii pp. Three folding maps, one colored in outline, inevitable foxing, but a very good, untrimmed copy. First Edition. A complicated book, as the maps may number one or three and be colored or uncolored; and there may or may not be an errata slip. This copy lacks the latter, although pp. 7-8, "To the Reader, " contains numerous corrections of errata. In this copy the index is bound between "Addenda no. III" and "Addenda no. IV." As the book's very long title makes clear, Darby -- a surveyor and geographer -- was obsessive about including every detail that pertained to his travels. This copy bears on the title-page the stamp of " J. S. Skinner. / 1832, " surely referring to the eminent sporting and agricultural writer John Stuart Skinner (for whom see DAB). Bradford 1193.

      Audot: Paris:, n.d. ca.1819. Paris: Audot n.d. ca.1819. First edition. Louise Cortambert's LE LANGAGE DES FLEURS is popularly regarded as the first Western book on the language of flowers. Although there were, in fact, earlier works on floral symbolism and flower-based languages, Cortambert's was by far the most popular and became the source for many, if not most, of the numerous later works on the same subject. It was published in 1819 under the pseudonym of Charlotte de Latour, and its true authorship remained unsettled for many years. "The illustrations to Le Langage des Fleurs constitute one of the chief sources of its charm. The original drawings were prepared by a floral artist of considerable renown, Pancrace Bessa," (Lucia Tomasi, AN OAK SPRING FLORA, pg. 366). Bessa was a student of Redouté and achieved a reputation as the foremost painter of miniature botanical illustrations in his day. These hand-colored plates - a frontispiece and one plate for each month of the year - depict from one to three individual flowers above engraved captions giving their name and associated sentiment or virtue. The text is arranged by seasons. Sections for each month of the year are further divided into chapters devoted to the appropriate flowers, their lore and meaning. There is also a dictionary of the language of flowers and a table of floral attributes for each hour of the day. The work went through several editions, some with the same illustrations, but the quality of the hand coloring in the original edition is noticeably superior.Oak Spring Flora 97 (later edition); Dunthorne 34 (later edition). 12mo (13.4 by 8 cm); xvi + 299 + (1) pp. + 14 hand-colored plates, including frontispiece + hand-colored title. With Hand-colored Plates By Bessa Contemporary maroon leather with gilt ruled raised bands to spine, intricate gilt tooling at head and heel, gilt ornaments in panels and black leather title piece lettered in gilt; upper and lower covers with blind-stamped panels framed in gilt ornamentation and rule; a.e.g. overall light scuffing, with modest wear to corners; a printed quotation from Cicero is pasted onto the rear free endpaper; pasted onto the rear blank is a small printed payer to Mary asking for help in finding a husband; there is some light browning and occasional foxing to the text, but the plates are largely free of this on the actual impressions; with overslips for all except one plate.

        Defensa guadalupana ... contra la disertacion de D. Juan Bautista Muñoz

      Méjico: Impr. de Alejandro Valdes Small 4to. [5] ff., 55, [1 (blank)] pp.. 1819 Juan Bautista Muñoz (1745–99, with death by apoplexy) was Charles III's official chronicler of New World. In a posthumously published article — "Memoria sobre las apariciones y el culto de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe en México . . . ", Memorias de la Real Academia de la Historia, V (1817), 204–24 — Muñoz => denied the apparition of the Virgin of Guadalupe, calling it merely the illusion of a "mere Indian." The cult of the Virgin of Guadalupe was so important to Mexicans of all classes and political persuasions that a spirited defense was assured; and Gómez Marín, a distinguished poet, naturalist, and religious writer, provides one here. Removed from a nonce volume. Title-leaf soiled and slightly foxed; upper inner corner of all leaves rodent gnawed with small loss of paper, not touching text. Two small pin-type wormholes penetrating from back toward front of volume, stopping on p. 13; some bug-spotting on last blank leaf. One leaf unaccountably browned. Not a fine copy, certainly; definitely, one priced for its faults.

        The Christian Advocate by a Tennesseean [sic]

      Nashville, (TN): Printed and sold by Thomas G. Bradford, 1819. 8vo. vi, [5]-357 pp. Folding plate (separated at fold, as usual, with the loss of a few letters along the separation). Original calf-backed boards (rubbed); except for the defect mentioned, a quite pleasing untrimmed copy of a very rare frontier book. First edition. Howes H-357: "Largely devoted to Indian antiquities; supports a Caucasian origin of our aborigines." American Imprints 48197. Allen Tennessee Imprints 393. Allen Some Tennessee Rarities 23: "Rarest of Haywood's three well-known historical works. This book is often called the first edition of his Natural and Aboriginal History of Tennessee; 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 to this Tennessee rarity." Horn Twenty Tennessee Books 3: "Judge Haywood attempts to show that the aboriginal inhabitants of American emigrated from Asia, and this theory he supports with a variety of facts and statements gleaned from early inhabitants of Tennessee regarding the Indians and their traditions as to those who lived here before them … this is an excessively rare book, and seldom offered for sale." McMurtrie Early Printing in Tennessee 166. Siebert sale 364: "Devoted largely to a study of Indian antiquities … the rarest of Haywood's books, not in Field or Sabin." RARE. We are unaware of copies other that of Siebert appearing on the market in recent years; like this copy and two others that we have examined, the plate in the Siebert copy was separated along the crease, apparently as the fold extended slightly beyond the edges of the other leaves, thus being prone to wear. OCLC records 14 copies, including six in Tennessee institutions; McMurtrie, Allen, and American Imprints add three more locations.

Contemporary full calf, gilt spine with black label, the label somewhat rubbed. Owner?s signature of Carl Magnus Ehnemark, dated Philadelphia 1823.

It become during the 19th century published in several new editions, both in London and in America. Bra svensk proveniens. Carl Magnus Ehnemark (1803-74) var sjöofficer och från 1857 svensk sjöminister och konteramiral. För att få erfarenhet tog Ehnemark efter kadettskolan 1821 värvning på en amerikansk brigg och jobbade där upp sig till förste styrman. I samband med denna tjänst befann han sig troligen i Phildadelphia 1823. Efter några år i Sverige tog han sedan värning i franska marinen och deltog 1830 i kriget mot Alger och i belägringen av Lissabon. Åter tillbaka i Sverige gjorde han en snabb karriär, ända till amiral och sjöminister. Som minister tillsatte hans flera utredningar för att höja standarden på den svenska flottan och han initierade studieresor till västra Europa och Amerika för att öka kunskapen om de nya marina tekniska förändringarna.

Ein kurzer Studienaufenthalt in Leipzig 1793/94 legte den Grundstein für seine umfassende Allgemeinbildung. 1796 gründete B. in Dortmund mit zwei Kompagnons eine eigene Großhandelsfirma für englische Manufakturwaren. Nach einem Zerwürfnis mit seinen Partnern entschloß er sich, nach Holland zu gehen, in das Hauptabsatzgebiet seines Unternehmens; zunächst in Arnheim, ließ er sich 1802 in Amsterdam nieder und machte sich selbständig. Wegen der Auswirkungen, die die Kontinentalsperre auf das Geschäft hatte, wechselte B. 1805 zum Buchhandel und gründete in Amsterdam die Buchhandlung Rohloff & Comp. (seit 1807 Kunst- und Industrie-Comptoir). Seit 1814 trägt der Verlag den Namen F. A. Brockhaus. Auf der Leipziger Buchhändlermesse zu Michaelis 1808 kaufte B. die Rechte an einem unvollendeten Konversationslexikon, das 1796 von Renatus Gotthelf Löbel und Christian Wilhelm Franke begonnen worden war. Den Restbestand dieses Werkes lieferte er seit 1809 unter dem neuen Titel Conversations-Lexikon oder kurz gefaßtes Handwörterbuch (6 Bde.) aus; 1809 und 1811 erschienen zwei Ergänzungsbände. B. pendelte zunächst zwischen Amsterdam und Leipzig, siedelte mit dem Verlag 1811 ins ostthüringische Altenburg über und verlegte 1817/18 den Firmensitz schließlich nach Leipzig, wo er eine eigene Druckerei errichtete. 1818 wurde er Leipziger Bürger und baute systematisch seinen Verlag aus. Er pflegte Literatur und Wissenschaft und wurde der erste Verleger Schopenhauers, zunächst von "Die Welt als Wille und Vorstellung" (1819), später von dessen Gesamtwerk. Bis zu B.' Tod zählte der Verlag u.a. Friedrich von Raumer, Henrik Steffens, Friedrich Rückert und Johann Heinrich Voß zu seinen Autoren. ... Das Konversationslexikon wurde ein großer Erfolg; die fünfte Auflage erschien 1819/20 in zehn Bänden unter dem Titel Allgemeine Deutsche Real-Encyklopädie für die gebildeten Stände (Conversations-Lexicon). In den knapp 18 Jahren seines Wirkens in Leipzig rückte B. in die erste Reihe der deutschen und international anerkannten Verleger auf. Er kämpfte mit seinen Standesgenossen erfolgreich gegen Nachdruck und Zensur und konnte seinem Sohn Heinrich, der in der Leitung des Unternehmens nachfolgte, ein wohlbestelltes Haus übergeben. Seine entscheidende Leistung lag darin, daß er den Namen Brockhaus zum Synonym für Konversationslexika machte und die deutsche Lexikographie im 19.Jh. zu ihren großen Erfolgen führte. (DBE) - Hier die wohl interessanteste Ausgabe des Lexikons in der Originalfassung, laut Brockhaus zufolge die, die die "aufgeregte politische Stimmung des Jahres 1819 verraten" habe - Bibliotheca Lexicorum 67.

        Autograph letter signed, concerning the lunar method for calculating longitude

      N.P. [?Paris], 1819. Manuscript letter, 231 x 186 mm., on a bifolium sheet, letter comprising first page with three blank pages, dated and signed by Rossel, slightly chipped but fine. D'Entrecasteaux's successor on longitude. Rossel, astronomer of the expedition in search of La Pérouse, writes to Louis Marie Bajot, inspector-general of the library of the Ministry of the Marine and editor of the Annales Maritimes et Coloniales, who had asked Rossel to review some articles on the lunar method. Rossel reports that the method was unsatisfactory and should be abandoned since the difficulty of accurately measuring the height of the moon is too great and liable to "grandes erreurs".Rossel joined the Recherche at the age of 26, one of the vessels under the command of Bruni d'Entrecasteaux dispatched in 1791 to solve the mystery of La Pérouse. The d'Entrecasteaux expedition was remarkable for its talented scientific members, including the naturalist Jacques Labillardière, hydrographer Charles-François Beautemps-Beaupré and astronomer Ambroise Pierson. Although differences in social origin and political allegiance proved a source of ongoing tension amongst the officers, overall the scientists worked co-operatively. The practical application of astronomy to navigation was an important one for these men, and during their stay in Tasmania Rossel constructed a temporary observatory for this purpose.Some years later, Rossel took on the editing of the official voyage account which was published in 1808, eight years after Labillardiere's account. In the official account the subject of longitude is treated in detail, forming a valuable explanatory text on the limitations of astronomical and lunar methods: "Rossel devoted the whole of the second volume of the official Voyage to an exposition of the methods used by himself and others in taking and correcting astronomical observations made during the voyage, together with detailed tables setting out the resulting calculations of latitude and longitude. By this means, he hoped, readers would be able to judge for themselves the probable accuracy of these estimates, especially those of longitude. Like Beautemps-Beaupré's appendix to the first volume, this became a kind of instructional treatise on the subject" (Horner, Looking for La Pérouse, p.41).Furthermore, in preparing material for the press Rossel cross-referenced the results with observations taken at Greenwich and supplied by the Astronomer Royal Nevil Maskelyne. The intention was to produce longitude bearings more accurate than those of Captain Cook, which had remained the benchmark of navigational accuracy.This letter reflects Rossel's experience reconciling the sciences of astronomy and navigation, and the high regard accorded by his peers. By this stage the use of marine chronometers was gaining widespread acceptance for longitude calculation as the lunar method became obsolete.

         Lettre autographe (de la main de son secrétaire) signée par Cambacérès en date de Bruxelles le 21 mars 1819, et adressée au jurisconsulte et avocat Dejoly à Paris

      Bruxelles, le 21 mars, 1819, in 8°, de 2pp., - On y joint: Une belle lettre calligraphiée de l'avocat Dejoly adresse au Prince archichancelier Cambacérès, en date du 6 juin 1812, pour obtenir un droit de reconnaissance de noblesse pour un citoyen Belge néerlandais, député d'Issel-Supérieur dans la Hollande annexée, en vertu du décret impérial du 26 août 1811. Datée de Paris le 6 juin 1812, de 2 pp. in folio avec cachet, et note pour suite au Procureur Général de la main de Cambacérès en marge, avec sa signature. Il s'agit d'une mise au point avec Deloly de la contestation entreprise par le Duc de Cambacérès contre le Duc d'Orléans. Après les Cent jours, Cambacérès est en effet en exil en Belgique. La seconde Restauration se montra sévère pour Cambacérès: il perd ses dotations, doit s'exiler comme régicide, et il est exclu de l'Académie française. Il se rend à Bruxelles, où il descend à l'hôtel Wellington, avec Lavollée et deux valets de chambre, puis à Amsterdam. En 1818, il est autorisé à rentrer en France. Dans cette lettre, il confirme à Dejoly que Mr Bonnet se charge de sa défense. demande la raison qui fait que cette affaire traîne en longueur, et voudrait pouvoir clore ce dossier avant son entour à Paris. Demande à Dejoly de tenir Mr. Thibon au courant du dossier, et adresse à à Dejoly les compliments de Mr. Lavollée (en exil avec lui). Cambacérès, initié à Montpellier, avant la Révolution, avait franchi les grades maçonniques successifs et exerça de 1805 à 1814, les fonctions de Grand-Maître adjoint du Grand-Orient de France. Etienne-Louis-Hector Dejoly (1756-1837) avocat au Parlement de Paris, plaida pour Cagliostro dans l'affaire du collier de la Reine. Enrichi par son mariage, la Révolution assura sa fortune politique. Il reprit ses fonctions d'avocat sous le Directoire, puis devint avocat au Conseil d'Etat. En maçonnerie il fut Garde des sceaux de la Gde Loge d'Administration, 33e membre du Sup. Conseil et Officier d'honneur du Gd Consistoire des Rites et du Grand Orient. ¶ Ligou Dict. de la F.M. p.190 & 348

        The Vampyre; A Tale

      London: Sherwood, Neely, and Jones,, 1819. 4 works in one, octavo. Contemporary calf, spine gilt-tooled in compartments with an olive morocco title label, sides bordered with a single gilt rule, blue speckled edges. With the half-titles, except that of Ina. Contemporary armorial bookplate. Spine and corners slightly rubbed, a little restoration to the joints and ends, some minor marks and scratches to the sides, slight spotting to the leaves of Ina, but on the whole remarkably clean and fresh internally, a very good copy indeed. First edition, in a handsome contemporary calf binding, of what is generally considered the first vampire novel in the English language. The Vampyre was conceived during the same competitive story-telling evening as Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, and was written by Byron's doctor, John William Polidori (1795?-1821). Henry Colburn first published it on 1 April 1819 in his New Monthly Magazine, with the subtitle "A Tale by Lord Byron"; and the first issue of Sherwood, Neely and Jones's book also has Byron's name on the title (that issue is now unobtainably rare); this is the third issue, as usual, with the first gathering reset in 23 lines. Polidori sought an injunction against Colburn, while Byron disowned it, publishing his vampire fragment conceived the same evening with Mazeppa by way of a disclaimer. "Although by no means the first appearance of the vampire in European literature, Polidori's tale established the prototype later developed in Sheridan Lefanu's 'Carmilla' and Bram Stoker's Dracula" (ODNB). Although the book was successful, Polidori made little from it; he committed suicide two years later. This copy is bound together with three other contemporary works, giving it an appealing literary context. The first two are plays: a second edition of Ina, a Tragedy, by Mrs Wilmot, an Anglo-Saxon drama printed by John Murray in 1815; the next is a second edition, with the half title, of Fazio, A Tragedy, the first book published by Henry Hart Milman (1791-1868, winner of the Newdigate poetry prize in 1812 with "Apollo Belvedere", fellow of Brasenose College, Oxford from 1814, and elected Oxford's Professor of Poetry in 1821), a Florentine drama with a touch of alchemy, printed in Oxford in 1816. The last work is a first edition, with the half title, of Paris in 1815. A Poem, printed by Murray in 1817. It is the first part of a long poem, here anonymously published, by the Rev George Croly (1780-1860), with its metre modelled on Byron's Childe Harold, expressing, in Romantic tones but with Tory sentiments, his impressions of Paris in the months before Napoleon's defeat at the battle of Waterloo. The second part was published, with Croly's name, in 1821 - the lack of which here asserts the likelihood that this calf binding was indeed a closely contemporary one.
