        DIVINA COMMEDIA Illustrata di Note Da Romualdo Zotti [Dell Inferno; Del Purgatorio; Il Paradiso; Vita di Dante]

      London: Presso di R. Zotti, 1819-1820. 3 volumes. The second of Zotti’s two rare Italian editions printed in England, revised and with expanded notes and commentary. With an engraved portrait frontispiece of Dante in volume one. 8vo, full contemporary dark calf, the boards with a rolled frame in blind, the spines gilt tooled flat bands creating compartments with either gilt lettering or central gilt tooled devices, fine marbled endpapers and blind stippled turn-ins and board edges. lii, 463; 455; 491 pp. A fine and beautiful set, internally as fresh, clean and solid as could be found, appearing nearly unused and beautifully preserved. The contemporary calf bindings very handsome and proper, also beautifully preserved, one hinge of volume three quite tender, easily repairable. RARE, OF ZOTTI’S TWO PRINTINGS OF DANTE THE TOTAL NUMBER LISTED IN LIBRARY HOLDINGS IS ONLY 43 COPIES, AND THIS EDITION BEING ONLY 23 OF THOSE. Of these listed, some are incomplete and most do not have the portrait of Dante. Zotti, an Italian printer living in London but publishing in Italian was an important figure in the importation of Italian literature into the English speaking world. It is in no way surprising that this, Zotti’s second edition of Dante, was printed the same year as the first complete modern English translation. Zotti’s Dante includes important notes and commentary, Zotti’s introduction, and a ‘Vita’ edited from that of Girolamo Tiraboschi.

        Historic Military and Naval Anecdotes,

      London: Edward Orme Publisher to the King and the Prince Regent, , 1819, but c.1825. Of Personal Valour, Bravery, and Particular Incidents which Occurred to the Armies of Great Britain and Her Allies, in the Long Contested War, Terminating in the Battle of Waterloo. Edited and published by, and engraved under the Direction of … Folio (334 × 270 mm). Twentieth-century royal blue crushed morocco by Birdsall, title gilt to spine, raised bands, double gilt ruled panels to the compartments, attractive concentric gilt panels to the boards with large laurel wreath corner-pieces, beaded edge-roll, all edges gilt, wide-turn-ins with gilt rolls and laurel wreath corner-pieces, marbled endpapers. 40 hand-coloured aquatint plates after Manskirch, Heath, Atkinson and others, the majority engraved by Dubourg and Clark. Very light shelf-wear, lower corners a touch bumped, some offsetting from, but not to the plates, a few minor edge-splits, one short tear just biting the edge of one plate, neatly repaired, a very handsome copy. Early state, the plates watermarked 1825, text variously 1811, 1812, 1817. The plates have issue dates between 1815 and 1818, and were first assembled in book form in 1819. Abbey and Tooley are at variance on the status of differing issues, but Abbey concludes, "it would appear reasonable to assume that the early state of the book has a dated title," as here. The colour is excellent. Orme was the son of a Manchester fustian manufacturer who came to London around 1794, his first engraving being published by his brother Daniel in that year. "On 21 January 1799 Orme was appointed printseller in ordinary to George III and on 5 April 1820 editor of prints in ordinary to George IV. In May 1800 he had a shop in Conduit Street, London (at the corner of George Street), and in 1801 exhibited a portrait at the Royal Academy. In the same year he established himself at 59 New Bond Street, London, at the corner of Brook Street, and published Rudiments of Landscape, a volume of uncoloured etchings after his brother William's drawings" (ODNB). He then embarked on the publication of a series of highly popular aquatint books of which this was to be the last. He had begun investing in property around 1809, and in 1824 he closed the shop and concentrated on a new career as a property developer. "Edward Orme was, after Rudolph Ackermann, the most important publisher of illustrated books during the short golden age of the coloured aquatint." The present work is a highly effective visualization of the most memorable "anecdotes" from this remarkable period of British successes, martial and naval, including Wellington and Blücher meeting at La Belle Alliance; the deaths of Ponsonby and Picton; the taking of the French eagle at Barrosa; Uxbridge wounded; Nelson in the cockpit at the Battle of the Nile; and the boarding of the Chesapeake. Highly desirable thus.

        Pheasants, M & F [Plate LVII]

      [Edinburgh: 1819-1834]. Hand coloured engraving, finished with gum arabic. Printed on wove Whatman paper. 21 1/8 x 26 3/8 inches. A beautiful print of pheasants from John Selby's seminal bird book "Illustrations of British Ornithology." Prideaux John Selby was a versatile gentleman naturalist. Born on 23 July 1788 in Alnwick, Northumberland, he inherited Twizell House and its estate in 1804, and throughout his life did not neglect his duties as a landowner, magistrate, High Sheriff, and then Deputy Lieutenant of Northumberland. He married Lewis Tabitha Mitford, the daughter of Bertram Mitford of Mitford Castle, Northumberland, in 1810, and by 1817 had a happy marriage, three daughters, and a house that had become a sort of upmarket staging-post for naturalists heading North and South along the nearby Great North Road. Visitors were to include John James Audubon (who gave Selby and his brother-in-law Robert Mitford lessons in drawing), Sir William Jardine (one of Selby's closest friends and a collaborator on various later works), John Gould, William Yarrell, H.E.Strickland, to name but a few. Natural history and ornithology had been Selby's passions from youth, and Christine Jackson notes, in her excellent introduction to the Sotheby's catalogue of the sale of the Bradley Martin collection of Selby watercolours, that, besides "collecting and preserving birds, Selby had observed them in the field, making careful notes of their habitat and habits. At his leisure, he also sensitively colored drawings of them. With this accumulation of practical knowledge, specimens, and some drawings, Selby embarked in 1819 on an ambitious project to publish the most up-to-date, life-size illustrations of British birds. Since he had an incomplete pictorial record of his birds, many remained to be drawn while publication of the parts of the work proceeded. The aim was to issue each part comprising twelve plates at regular intervals of six months. The size of the paper chosen was elephant folio (27" x 21½") in order that most of the birds might be represented life- size. For each plate, Selby made watercolor paintings of the species." "Selby etched his drawings on copper plates and then either took or sent the plates to William Home Lizars in Edinburgh. Either Lizars or one of his workmen took a pull [proof impression] from Selby's plate and worked on any parts necessary to bring the plate to a very fine state of completion. Selby and Sir William Jardine both purchased their copper plates and etching ground from Pontifex of London, and their letters refer to the progress made in drawing and 'biting' or etching their plates. If they made a mistake or accidently over-etched a plate, they relied on Lizars to correct by burnishing to lighten it" (Jackson, Bird Etchings, pp.202-204). BM (NH) IV,pp.1896-1896; cf. Fine Bird Books (1990) p.141; cf. Nissen IVB 853; cf. Zimmer p.571.

        COLLECTION DE COSTUMES SUISSES DES XXII CANTONS, peints par J. Reinhard de Lucerne

      Basel: Birmann & Huber, 1819 [1823]. 46 finely hand-colored engraved costume plates, each with a leaf of descriptive letterpress. 3 plates showing Whatman watermarks (plate 8: 1811; plate 36: 1823; and plate 41: 1819) 4to, beautifully bound in late 19th or early 20th century full crimson crushed morocco by J. Kulbsho, the boards feature fine gilt ruled and stippled frame with large floral corner-pieces, the spine with gilt floral decorations in gilt framed compartments between ruled raised bands, one compartment and the spine tail lettered in gilt, all edges gilt., turn-ins and board edges gilt decorated. A beautiful copy, the plates are fresh and clean with bright colours, the binding most impressive and in excellent condition, one plate with minor repair. VERY RARE. A beautiful early 19th century costume book, the hand-colouring of the plates is very masterfully achieved. The very handsome binding also makes an extremely lovely presentation. Three of the plates show Whatman Turkey Mill watermarks; Whatman paper is considered to be one of the finest English handmade papers of the 18th century. The elder James Whatman began to produce good quality white paper at his Turkey Mill in Kent around 1740. Until this time England was largely dependent on the importation of paper from neighbouring countries such as Holland, France and Germany. William Balston and the Hollingsworth Brothers became the main papermakers at Turkey Mill. These papermakers were given rights to the Whatman name after 1807. The fact that by this time their papers were being used in Switzerland gives credit to their accomplishments in bringing English papers up to, or even beyond, continental standards.

        Le Texas, ou Notice historique sur Le Champ d'Asile

      Paris: Gand, (Brasseur aîné for) Béguin, Béchet, et al., 1819. 8vo., (8 4/8 x 5 2/8 inches). Half-title, SIGNED BY HARTMANN on the verso. Folding engraved view-plan of Le Champ d'Asile (title and first leaf of dedication creased, some heavy spotting, edges a bit frayed). Original blue vinegar marbled paper wrappers (creased and chipped at edges with minor loss). First edition of an "indispensable source and by far the best" of the four earliest accounts (one fictional) of the short-lived Bonapartist colony of Champ d'Asile, established and dispersed within six months in 1819. Conceived by the exiled Napoleonic general Charles F.A. Lallemand, ostensibly as a place for defeated Napoleonic veterans to begin new lives (but in fact with a hazy military agenda, cf. Streeter, Bibliography of Texas, I, pp. 58-59), the illegal settlement was established on land in the disputed border area between Louisiana and Texas which the United States and Spain, desperate to avoid an armed confrontation, had finally declared a "Neutral Ground" in 1806. Spanish troops were soon dispatched to evict the settlers, while US pressure forced another French colony, under the pirate Jean Lafitte, to leave Galveston. By 1819 the Adams-Onis Treaty finally abolished the neutral zone, establishing the Sabine River as the border between New Spain and the United States. Meanwhile the starving Champ d'Asile settlers had been forced to retreat to New Orléans. Thus the Champ d'Asile colony precipitated a diplomatic resolution of a potentially inflammatory border dispute. Its mark on popular literature and art in France were equally far-reaching. During its brief existence, and although it at no point included more than 100 settlers and in all may have numbered 160 (including 4 women and 4 children, according to the list of "Cohorts" on pp. 51-57), the Champ d'Asile inflamed the imaginations of the French and encouraged nostalgia for the empire. Soon after their return, ex-colonists began publishing accounts of their travails (in part to elicit charitable support), and songs, engravings and lithographs mushroomed; images of the Champ d'Asile soon appeared on wallpaper and on labels to liqueur bottles. The theme remained persistent in French literature throughout the 19th century and even resurfaced in a novel of the 1980s. Of the four full-length books, including the fictionalized 'L'Héroïne du Texas', published in 1819-1820, the present account "is the only one. to give a brief but more or less consecutive account of the founding of the colony, the life there, the retreat to Galveston, and the dispersal of the colonists to the four winds" (Streeter). Dedicated to the subscribers to a charitable fund for the refugee colonists, it consists of the separate diaries of Hartmann and Millard, a list of the colonists, and Lallemand's deceptively peaceful manifesto (pp. 44-48), with a folding plate showing the buildings and layout of Champ d'Asile. The anonymous authors of both 'L'Héroïne' and the 1820 'Le Champ d'Asile au Texas' freely plagiarized Hartmann and Millard's narrative. Rare, especially in original wrappers. Streeter Texas, 1069; Sabin 30706; Howes H-270; Graff 2487; Jenkins Basic Texas Books, 85.

      Paris: Chez Beguin, 1819.. [6],[4],135pp. plus folding plate. 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. STREETER 1069. BASIC TEXAS BOOKS 85. GRAFF, FIFTY TEXAS RARITIES 6. HOWES H270, "b." MONAGHAN 792. RAINES, p.109. SABIN 30706.

        The Kilmarnock Mirror and Literary Gleaner

      Scotland - Kilmarnock Press 1819 - 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's Raggit Wean pasted to the front pastedown. The Drunkard'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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Narrative of a Voyage in the Indian Seas

      London,: Richard Phillips, circa, 1819.. Octavo, folding frontispiece map and three other plans and plates; one fold of the frontispiece map repaired with slight loss, title-page a little browned, overall very good in polished quarter calf by Bayntun. A warm and engaging description of a voyage to through the Indian Ocean to Java and beyond, with a tantalising glimpse of the sparse West Australia coastline. The work includes a large folding map of the track of the Nisus which shows it passing the coast near the North-West Cape. The work is also particularly interesting for Prior's account of Mauritius just months after Flinders was finally released (and is one of only a handful of contemporary books on the island).James Prior, an officer aboard the Nisus (a Royal Navy frigate under the command of Captain Philip Beaver) here provides a beautifully written account of a voyage to the Cape of Good Hope, Isles of Bourbon, France and Seychelles; to Madras and thenceforth to Java, St. Paul and Amsterdam islands. Prior's account includes a detailed and arresting description of the French capitulation of the Isle de France (present day Mauritius) during the final months of 1810.In many respects the West Australian coastline remained as enigmatic and impenetrable to English mariners in the early nineteenth-century as it had to the Dutch almost two centuries before. Lack of water and nourishment forbade landing, yet the quick curiosity of mariners such as James Prior begged investigation. He writes 'approaching New Holland on the 6th of August, in the morning, land was discovered in the vicinity of the north-west Cape, the most prominent part of the coast. As we neared it the eye anxiously ranged over the widely-extended surface, in order to fix on some inviting spot where might be traced the habitations of men; but nothing of this kind could be distinguished'. He concludes that this land 'in its present unknown state, may safely retain the old appellation of Terra Incognita'. The handsomely engraved folding frontispiece map includes the New Holland coastline (although Prior's account is not listed in Perry and Prescott's A Guide to Maps of Australia in Books Published 1780-1830).Eight pages of Prior's narrative concerns the armed landing at the Isle de France on 29 November 1810. The Isle de France was an important French outpost in the Indian Ocean with significant strategic and mercantile advantages coveted by Britain. In addition to the Prior's ebullient description, Narrative of a Voyage in the Indian Seas includes a detailed sounding chart of Port Louis to the eastward of Cannoner's point and a table of engraved text titled "Plan of the Landing of the British Army in Mapou Bay, Isle de France". From this we learn the numbers of men per vessel, their regiment, and deployment upon landing (for example, the Nisus transported Grenadiers of the Twelfth, amongst others, and deployed a flat barge and two cutters). The Isle de France holds a poignant place in the early history of Australia, being the place of Matthew Flinders confinement for over six years (indeed, Flinders sailed for England on 14 June 1810, a matter of months before the invasion here described).Hill, 1394; not in Ferguson; not listed in Perry and Prescott's A Guide to Maps of Australia in Books Published 1780-1830'.

        Instructions de DaprËs sur la Navigation des Indes Orientales

      Paris,: Imprimerie Royale, 1819.. Octavo, title-page a little shorter than the body of text (which has generous margins); a few spots; in a superb contemporary binding of crimson roan leather, ornately gilt, spine richly gilt with fleur-de-lys devices at centre of each compartment between bands, dark green moirÈ silk endpapers with complex gilt dentelle borders, sides with wide gilt borders, royal arms of Louis Philippe in gilt at centre of each side. A superb copy prepared in a royal binding, with the Bourbon arms, for the Duc d'OrlÈans, the future King Louis-Philippe. At the time of publication of this work he had spent four years in Paris after returning from his long exile; a member of the court and a significant political figure throughout the Bourbon Restoration from 1815 to 1830, he finally ascended to the throne himself in 1830. He ruled France - the last king to do so - from 1830 to 1848.This is the final edition of d'AprËs de Mannevillette's Instructions, the publication of data to explain and supplement his maps of the eastern oceans, collectively published as the Neptune Oriental. The text of the Instructions was updated several times by d'AprËs de Mannevillette himself while he served as cartographer for the Compagnie des Indes, though further amendments followed his death in 1780. A number of additions based on discoveries made in the early nineteenth century make this 1819 version the most comprehensive and authoritative edition. Like the Neptune Oriental itself, the Instructions draws upon a wide range of sources to provide the most accurate information possible for navigating to the east. In addition to maps and published accounts by notable explorers, d'AprËs de Mannevillette used logbooks from company ships, first-hand testimony from officers, anecdotal accounts from sailors and a rich correspondence with AbbÈ Lacaille, Alexander Dalrymple and other respected geographers of the period. The Instructions was used to provide information for the East India Pilot published in London in 1782, an indispensable navigational resource that likewise passed into many editions.
