        Color Plate] Tour of The Grand Junction, illustrated in a series of engravings; with an Historical and Topographical Description of those parts of the counties of Middlesex, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire and Northhamptonshire, through which the canal passes

      Printed for J Hassell, 27, Richard Street, Islington; and sold by all book sellers, London 1819 - First Edition. 8vo: viii,147,[5] pp, with hand-colored frontispiece and 23 full-page hand-colored plates "of great topographical interest" (Hardie; according to Abbey, some copies were issued uncolored). Full period black straight-grain morocco, spine elaborately tooled gilt in six compartments, boards tooled in blind and gilt, turn-ins gilt, all edges gilt. A Very Good or better copy, the plates clean and bright, with sporadic, mostly marginal (occasionally heavy) foxing to text. Provenance: book plate to front paste down of Howard Calhoun Davidson (1890-1984), U. S. Air Force Major General and veteran of both World Wars. Abbey, Scenery, 30. Tooley 252. Martin Hardie, pp. 140-141. Prideaux, p. 272. The Grand Junction Canal's 93 miles of waterway, from Braunston in Northhamptonshire to the River Thames at Brentford, was designed to facilitate water transport to London as an alternative to the uncertain Thames. By 1790, an extensive network of canals was in place in the Midlands, but the only route to London was via the Oxford Canal to the Thames, then down the river to the capital. The River Thames, particularly its upper reaches, suffered from shallow sections and shortages of water leading to delays at locks. The mainline (there were numerous branches) of the Grand Junction Canal, built between 1793 and 1805, by-passed the upper Thames and shortened the journey to London. Hassell, a watercolorist and engraver, first appeared as an exhibitor at the Royal Academy in 1789, with a "View of Stonehenge on Salisbury Plain."

        The Cenci. A tragedy, in five acts.

      printed for C. and J. Ollier, London, [Livorno], Italy 1819 - First edition, 8vo in 4s, pp. xiv, 104; bound without the initial blank leaf in later full blue straight-grain morocco, double gilt-ruled borders on covers enclosing a blindstamped roll, gilt-decorated spine in 6 compartments, gilt-lettered direct in 1, a.e.g.; nice copy. Printed in an edition of only 250 copies. Shelley had been fascinated by the lurid story of Beatrice Cenci and Guido's portrait of her as seen in the Columna 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, well 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" (Foreman). This is the only book of Shelley's to reach a second edition in his lifetime. It is dedicated to Leigh Hunt. Forman, p. 56; Wise, p. 51; Ashley Library V, p. 69.

      Paris, France: P. Didot, L'Ainé et Jules Didot, Fils, 1819. later paper-covered boards. 117058|94595|100370|100371/CA. Type Specimens. 8vo. later paper-covered boards. 80; (ii),19+(1) pages. Text in French. Bigmore & Wyman I, 175; Audin 212; Updike, Printing Types 178-9, with plates reproducing parts of the text as plates 318 and 319. Text on recto only. The first book of type specimens issued by Didot and the first to use the Didot point system. This specimen book demonstrates the new look of type that Didot advanced in the early 19th century. In the one page foreword Didot states that the fonts were developed under his personal supervision by the type-cutter Vibert "who he assisted for three hours a day for ten years to get things to his mind." Though Updike finds the type "distinguished by the violent contrast of their thick and thin lines," the type led to a new school of typography to emerge. The specimens are presented successively in different sizes from the smallest (4 and a half) to the largest (21). Bound at the end is Didot's Essai d'un Nouveau Caractère, offrant un Essai Lyrique. (1821) Identified as a separate work in Bigmore and Wyman I, 176. Between the 1819 and 1821 works is a leaf identifying the second as a "supplement to the specimen of new characters" published in 1819, mentioned in Audin 213. Boards rubbed and scuffed at edges with some soiling. Light foxing. Old bookseller's description in corner of front pastedown. Very scarce, especially with supplement.

        The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent

      Complete 2-volume set. 12mo. Full calf with compartments and gilt spine lettering and spine decorations. viii, 326pp; 343pp, (1p ad). Very good. Original spines expertly remounted. A tight, quite attractive fifth edition of these essays first brought out by Murray the year before -- whose best known contributions are of course "Rip Van Winkle" and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." Of great interest is the bookplate near the top of the front pastedown of Volume I: "Ex Libris / John Ruskin / Brantwood." Ruskin (1819-1900) was of course the greatest art critic of the Victorian age, and Brantwood his glorious estate in England's Lake District. This is Type 2 of his bookplate, designed by William Morris of the Kelmscott Press in 1889, around the time Ruskin suffered a severe physical and mental breakdown. Although this title does not appear in James Reardon's 2012 "The Library of John Ruskin," which lists 2,969 books known to have belonged to Ruskin, much of his library got scattered and reappearances are quite common -- so much so that Reardon is compiling an addendum. Some spurious Ruskin bookplates do exist, identified by Reardon as Type 3, 4 and 6. One leading Ruskin scholar theorized about this copy of the Sketch Book, "it is more a probability than a possibility that the book did emanate from Ruskin (and Brantwood).... Conceivably it was something that he might have read in childhood.

        Plan von Trier und seinen Umgebungen.

      1819 - Kupferstich-Karte von C. Mare bei Quednow, datiert Berlin 1819, koloriert. Ca. 29,5 x 40 cm. Karte der engeren Umgebung von Trier, erstellt nur vier Jahre nachdem die Stadt preußisch und Teil der Rheinprovinz geworden war. Die Karte ist in etwa gewestet und reicht von Igel/Wasserliesch und Konz bis nach Ruwer. Im Osten sind Zewen, Euren, Sirzenich und Lorich eingezeichnet, im Westen reicht sie bis Olewig, umfasst dann aber das Ruwertal von Ruwer über Mertesdorf und Kasel bis Waldrach. Der Charakter eines Planes (wie der Titel ja verheißt) wird in der Präzision der Ortsdarstellungen deutlich, die offenbar wenn nicht parzellen-, dann wenigstens strassengenau sind und die bestehende Bebauung akkurat verzeichnen. Unterhalb des Titel findet sich folgende Angabe "Gestochen v. Carl Mare Prof. u. Mitgl. d. Acad. z. Berlin 1819". Als Maßstab dienen Preußische Ruten. Das seltene Blatt erschien 1820 in Carl Friedrich Quednows "Beschreibung der Alterthümer in Trier und dessen Umgebungen aus der gallisch-belgischen und roemischen Periode".

        Don Quixote De La Mancha

      London: Printed for T. M'Lean, 1819. - To Dream The Impossible Dream:A Fine Set in Original BoardsCERVANTES SAAVEDRA, Miguel De. Don Quixote De La Mancha. Translated from the original Spanish of Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra by Charles Jarvis, Esq. Embellished with twenty-four highly finished engravings from drawings designed expressly for this edition. In four volumes. London: Printed for T/ M'Lean, 1819. First M'Lean edition of the Jarvis translation and the first thus illustrated. Four octavo volumes (8 7/8 x 5 1/8 in; 225 x 135 mm). lxxxviii, 376; 403, [1]; xvi, 370; viii, 440 pp. Twenty-four hand-colored aquatint plates by J. Clark.Publisher's original drab boards, expertly rebacked using the original printed spine labels. An astonishing set in marvelous condition. Housed in a brown cloth drop-back clamshell case.Originally published in two volumes, in 1605 and 1615, respectively, Don Quixote is considered the most influential work of literature from the Spanish Golden Age and, indeed, of the entire Spanish literary canon. As a founding work of modern Western literature and one of the earliest canonical novels, it regularly appears high on lists of the greatest works of fiction ever published.Charles Jervas (or Charles Jarvis; c. 1675 ? 1739) was an Irish portrait painter, translator, and art collector of the early 18th century. His translation of Cervantes' novel Don Quixote, published posthumously in 1742 as being made by Charles "Jarvis" ? because of a printer's error ? has since come to be known as "the Jarvis translation." Jervas was the first to provide an introduction, found here, to the novel including a critical analysis of previous translations of Don Quixote. It has been highly praised as the most accurate translation of the novel up to that time. It went through many printings during the 19th century.Little is known about illustrator J[ohn] Clark aka I. Clark. Prideaux notes that he "aquatinted plates to some thirty volumes, chiefly of travels." Where Prideaux cites a title by J. Clark she is kind, noting that his work along with others she mentions was "so much appreciated in their time."Prideaux, p. 330.

        Convention Nationale. Opinion de Thomas Payne [sic],

Paris, de l&#39;Imprimerie Nationale, 1792; [bound with:] &#151; [drop-head title] Convention Nationale. Opinion &#133; Sur l&#39;Affaire de Louis Capet, Adressée au Président de la Convention Nationale; Imprimée par ordre de la Conventional nationale. [No place, no date, but 1793]; [and with:] &#151; The American Crisis. 3 works bound together in one volume, pp. 8; 10; [ii], 196; the first two works small octavo (approx. 195 × 122 mm), the third, with uncut edges, taller octavo (226 × 138 mm). Later mottled half calf, spine lettered gilt, marbled sides. A2 and A3 misbound out of order in first work. Excellent copies. First editions of the first two listed works, rare in commerce. No copy of the first work appears in auction records since 1975 and only one copy of the second. The Rights of Man brought Paine enormous popularity in France, and eventually election to the National Convention, the central governing agency of the First Republic. But Paine spoke little or no French and had to rely on a fellow deputy translating for him, and he had not grasped how dramatically the course of the revolution had changed. French adulation turned into anger when Paine opposed the execution of Louis XVI. After a bare majority had voted for death, Paine sought a reprieve by pressing for detention, and subsequent banishment to America, rather than execution (with Bancal reading a translation of his speech). Marat shouted him down on the grounds that he was a Quaker, and further interruptions by Marat and Thuriot challenged the accuracy of the translation being read and wrecked any chance of his plea finding support. In December 1793 he was arrested. Robespierre himself wrote out the order of execution, but Paine escaped this fate through an error of his captors and was released from prison the next year after the end of the Terror. The third work in this Sammelband was reprinted by the radical publisher Richard Carlile, who popularized the writings of Tom Paine to the next generation, adding a biography, The Life of Thomas Paine (1820). Carlile was the subject of several prosecutions in 1819; during one trial he famously read aloud The Age of Reason under the justification that the jury would have to judge whether it was blasphemous, an action which allowed him to republish the work under privilege of court (10,000 twopenny copies were subsequently sold). He was found guilty on two charges and sentenced to six years in Dorchester prison.

        The Kilmarnock Mirror and Literary Gleaner

      Scotland - Kilmarnock Press, 1819 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce Scottish periodical containing essays, moral tales, poetry and a variety of miscellaneous pieces, adapted for instruction and amusement. Volume one only; containing number one, dated October 1818, through to number eight, datedMay 1819. With the popular Scottish ballad The Drunkard&#39;s Raggit Wean pasted to the front pastedown. The Drunkard&#39;s Raggit Wean paints a pitiful picture of a child left hungry, cold and miserable through neglect by his drunken parents. This was clearly intended to provide moral instruction against the dangers of drinking alcohol to excess, and may have been linked to the Temperance Movement. Early ballads were dramatic or humorous narrative songs derived from folk culture that predated printing. Originally perpetuated by word of mouth, many ballads survive because they were recorded on broadsides. Condition: Rebound in a half calf binding with paper covered boards. Externally, the spine is a trifle rubbed, and there are some marks to the boards. Gentle wear to extremities. Generally firmly bound, although lacking the original first two and last eight leaves; which have been neatly handwritten and bound in. Instances of handling marks and the odd spot. Poem pasted to the front pastedown. Overall: GOOD ONLY..

      Newcastle-on-Tyne,, 1819.. Broadside measuring 523 x 417 mm., wove paper watermarked 1816, folded, excellent condition. A striking visual display of English justice during the transportation era, listing the conviction and punishment of prisoners tried at the Newcastle-upon-Tyne assizes on 14 August 1819.Court calendars such as this fine example were published as public notices detailing the convictions, punishments and sentencing of persons appearing before the assizes. This calendar reports the conviction of eight men tried at the assizes that day, in addition to the punishments allotted to another five. Here we read the fate of one Robert Brown, aged 35 years and convicted of larceny, who is to be 'transported to such Part of his Majesty's Dominions beyond the Seas...for the Term of seven Years.'The crimes of other convicts are described in some detail, and include counterfeiting, assault of a gentleman upon the King's Highway for his silver watch, theft of silver and bank-notes from a Friendly Society and the robbery of textiles and plush velvet cushions from a church. The most prominent list of charges belong to one Ralph Hush, also aged 35 years, who is charged with a string of livestock thefts, including one instance where Hush did 'feloniously take and drive away... thirty Wedder Hogs, ten Ewes, and thirteen Lambs... as well as one Dinmont Sheep and two Lambs' in all exceeding 80 shillings value.

        A Complete Set of the Delphin Variorum Classics

      London: A.J. Valpy, 1819-1830. 166 vols, 8vo, uniform full contemporary vellum over boards, double gilt fillet borders on covers, backstrips on each volume also ruled in gilt with two black morocco labels, gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt, blue endpapers. Occasional rubbing to labels, periodic rough texture to a few backstrips, some light soiling to covers. Contents generally very clean with infrequent discoloration. A rare set when complete, here in fine appropriate contemporary bindings. First editions thus. Though Abraham John Valpy (1787-1854) started his printing venture with the The Classical Journal in 1810 and The Pamphleteer in 1828, he dreamed of becoming a grand classical scholar/printer in the tradition of Aldus Manutius and Henri Estienne. He wanted to create affordable, scholarly, accurate and refined editions of the greatest classical authors. The most-significant attempt since the Renaissance to re-print the great Classical authors had been Pierre HuetÕs 17th-century Delphin Classics, so called as they were printed in the 1670s for the education of Louis Le Grand Dauphin, son of Louis XIV. By the time of Valpy nearly 150 years later, examples of this edition were rare, and the enterprising editor/scholar saw an opportunity to claim his rightful succession. Valpy ultimately abandoned his dream, his final publication being Òthe Family Classical Library (1830-1834): English Translations of Greek and Latin Classics, in fifty-two volume.Ó Afterwards, ÒValpy sold his printing materials [in 1837], parted with his large stock of books and copyrights, and retired into private life. From that time he applied his energies to the University Life Assurance Company and other undertakings in which he was interested either as a director or shareholderÓ (DNB). & & A complete set in 166 volumes, as follows: Apuleius (Seven Volumes); Aulus Gellius (Four Volumes); Ausonius (Three Volumes); Boethius (One Volume); C¾sar (Four Volumes); Catullus (Two Volumes); Cicero (Fifteen Volumes); Claudianus (Three Volumes); Curtius (Three Volumes); Dares et Dictys (Two Volumes); Eutropius (One Volume); Florus (Two Volumes); Horace (Four Volumes); Justinus (Two Volumes); Juvenal (Two Volumes); Livy (Twenty-Two Volumes); Lucretius (Four Volumes); Manilius (Two Volumes); Martial (Three Volumes); Nepos (Two Volumes); Ovid (Nine Volumes); Panegyrici Veteres (Five Volumes); Paterculus (One Volume); Persius (One Volume); Ph¾drus (Two Volumes in One); Plautus (Five Volumes); Pliny (Twelve Volumes); Pompeius Festus (Three Volumes); Propertius (Two Volumes); Prudentius (Three Volumes); Sallust (Two Volumes); Statius (Four Volumes); Suetonius (Four Volumes); Tacitus (Eight Volumes); Terence (Four Volumes); Tibullus (One Volume); Valerius Maximus (Three Volumes); Victoris (Two Volumes); and Virgil (Eight Volumes).&

        The Republican

      London:: R. Carlile,, 1819-1824.. Rear hinge of volume four completely detached. Some occasional internal soiling; calf and marbled paper lifting on vol. 14, some chipping to the spines on other volumes; lacks a spine titling piece; an occasional small flaw in scattered leaves, with loss of letters (but no loss of sense); overall, in good condition.. 14 vols, 8vo, contemporary uniform half calf and marbled boards, red morocco labels, gilt lettering. Frontis portrait in vol. 13. Bound with 15 additional tracts published by Carlile. 329 (out of 331) numbers of this uncommon radical weekly periodical, the successor to his suppressed Sherwin&#39;s Political Register, here offered as collected and sold by Carlile. Published largely while Carlile served a term in prison--and while successive agents for the paper were clapped in jail for seditious libel--the Republican (despite all the financial and political woes with which it was beset) proved to be an important radical journal. While there is much from Carlile on the expected free-thought subjects, as well as his attacks on targets ranging from Peel to Henry Hunt (and an extensive war in print against William Cobbett), other contributors play important roles. Squibs and articles came from those imprisoned during the "war of the shop-men" (including Susannah Wright), and include numerous pseudonymous contributions from Benthamite Francis Place (who led and largely penned the contraception and free-love campaign in the Republican--included here--which caused Carlile to fall afoul of a number of his supporters; he also ghosted much of the attack on Cobbett). Other numbers include defenses of Shelley and Byron (with extracts), an open letter to Elizabeth Fry, addresses from Robert Owen, accounts of black activist Robert Wedderburn, much on Malthus, etc. Neither missing issue appears to have been bound in this set: one is the suppressed first issue, with its inflammatory description of Peterloo; the other is vol. 5, number 13, which in its place one finds bound a later edition of vol. 4, number 13--almost certainly a mix-up on the part of the binders, who were putting together sets with what numbers were on hand.
