The image for Waterloo shows the point when, after eight hours of defensive fighting, 'the approach of the Prussians on the left of the British line determined the Duke of Wellington to be in his turn the assailant' and to order the general advance of the Allied line. Westall's drawings were engraved by Theodore Henry Fielding.

Pierre Daru, intendant de la Grande Armée et ministre de la Guerre sous Napoléon, Pair de France sous la Restauration, réunit, pour cet ouvrage, une documentation sans précédent sur l'histoire politique, diplomatique, économique et militaire de Venise. Grâce à ce matériau unique, il put retracer, avec une rigueur tout nouvelle, la fondation et l'évolution de cette République Italienne, son accession au rang de puissance mondiale peu ébranlée, son réseau institutionnel tant célébré durant des siècles, sa société et les groupes sociaux qui la composent, et enfin sa chute, en 1797. 7 grandes cartes, rehaussées partiellement à la main montrent l'ancienne Vénétie, la Lagune au Moyen-âge et en 1799, les Provinces de Terre Ferme de Venise, les Etats de la République, la Morée et son Archipel, et, un plan de la ville de Venise. Les deux derniers tomes consistent en une liste de pièces justificatives et en une monumentale table alphabétique des matières. Très bel ensemble, bien relié et d'une grande fraicheur

        The Vampyre; A Tale

      London: Printed for Sherwood, Neely, and Jones, 1819. First edition. Wraps. Fine. 8vo. xxv,(1),27-84pp. Sherwood, Neely, and Jones' Third Issue. Half-title is present. The 'Extract', pp. 73-84, is present. Both Extracts are sometimes attributed to John Mitford. In the original publisher's drab paper wraps. Spine perished and sewing loose, page edges dusty, else a fine copy, the pages uncut with large margins. Housed in a fine custom clamshell case, deep blue morocco spine, gilt, with marbled paper sides . A completely unsophisticated copy with no attempts to address the defects of normal wear over the last nearly two centuries. This title has a curious bibliographic history, with first issues attributing authorship to Lord Byron, then removing Byron's name, then this issue (Viets IV), with gathering 'A' reset to 23 lines to account for the removal of a slur on Mary Godwin and Jane Clermont and with 'lmost' on page 36. Earlier issues are nearly unavailable, making this essentially the earliest printing obtainable of the first book on vampires. See Viets in PBSA LXIII (1969), 83-103.

        Autograph letter signed ('J. Cartwright'), to (? his publisher) Mr. Cleary of Findon in Sussex.

      Leamington 11 July Recipient's note 'Should be Augst' 1819 - 4to., 2pp., integral address leaf, postal markings, small tears where opened, recipient's endorsement, slight trace of former hinge. In very good state of preservation and readily legible. A fine letter by the 'Father of Reform', John Cartwright M.P. (1740-1824), political reformer and pamphleteer, reporting that he has been indicted 'respecting the business at Birmingham' which was fabricated against him in London and for which he, Wooler and others were arraigned before the grand jury in Warwick; nevertheless assuring him that he expects his bail will be pledged the following day, and that on Sunday he had time to make his escape to Leamington and finish a letter to the Prince Regent for delivery to Carlton House with a copy of his Bill bound in blue morocco ('. My letter to the Prince was sent to the Black Dwarf, >wherefore it will probably appear tomorrow. To have thought of writing that letter, which applied in no small degree to the attack on me, I esteem one of the fortunate events of my life; for an indictment of me while I was writing it, was the last thing I dreamed of .'). Letters by John Cartwright are rare in the market (no letters by him are recorded as having been sold in American Book Prices Current>). The present letter also seems to have been unknown to his niece, F.D. Cartwright, as it is not mentioned in her Life and Correspondence> (1826) in which she discusses at length the circumstances surrounding the subject of Cartwright's letter. [op. cit. pp.163 et seq.] Cartwright was a powerful advocate of universal manhood suffrage, parliamentary and army reform and the abolition of slavery. 'Despite declining an invitation from John Knight, the founder of the first Hampden Club in Lancashire, to address a meeting at St. Peter's Fields, Manchester, Cartwright did accept the crowd's thanks, at a monster open-air meeting of the Birmingham Union in 1819, an action which led to his indictment, together with Thomas Wooler and three others, for sedition. Cartwright again attracted attention on 16 August 1819 when, after escaping the carnage of the yeomanry charge at 'Peterloo', he was called to answer his charges. Finally, in Warwick on 29 May 1821, he was convicted of sedition at the age of eighty-one, and when Mr Justice Bayley refused his request for imprisonment, Cartwright paid his fine of £100, happily noting each gold coin was a good sovereign . A landed eighteenth-century gentleman, Cartwright transcended his background in the early decades of the nineteenth century and helped lay the foundation for the modern notion of political inclusion'. [Rory T. Cornish, in the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography>]. The book described in this letter as being sent to the Prince Regent was presumably his Bill of Rights and Liberties; or an Act for a Constitutional Reform of Parliament> (1817). The letter's recipient would appear to be T. Cleary, publisher of Cartwright's English Constitution Produced and Illustrated> (1823), a work admired by Thomas Jefferson. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
