        Historic, Military, and Naval Anecdotes,

      London: Edward Orme, Publisher to his Majesty, and to his Royal Highness the Prince Regent,, 1819. 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. Quarto (345 x 259 mm). 20th-century purple half calf to style, decorative gilt and blind tooled spine, dark green morocco label, marbled sides. 40 hand-coloured aquatint plates by Dubourg, Clark or Fry & Sutherland after Manskirch, Heath, Atkinson and others. General pale offsetting from plates to text, pp. 3 and 5 of letterpress soiled at fore-edge and with old repairs to closed-tears, old repair to closed-tear in blank margin of plate opposite p. 32 ("Anecdote of the bravery of the Scotch piper"), some signs of handling; the plates themselves fresh and bright. First edition, early state, plates watermarked 1812, 1815 or 1816, text 1806 or 1812; the plates have printed 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 in this copy 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" (ibid.). 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. "The book is remarkable for its brilliant colouring" (Martin Hardie, English Coloured Books, p. 138).

        [Photo Album]: A Photo Album of an Ohio Family's Life through Two Generations, 1918 to 1943

      Canton, Ohio / Chicago: , 1918-1943, 1819. Canton, Ohio / Chicago. 1918-1943. Oblong quarto measuring 11" x 7". String-tied black leather over stiff paper boards. Contains 295 gelatin silver black and white or sepia toned photographs measuring between 1" x 2.5" and 4.5" x 4" with some captions. Cover and first page detached but present, small chips and tears thus good with fine photographs. A collection of photographs from Canton, Ohio in 1918 through 1943 showing a young woman's family and friends when she is a young girl and following her life until she has children of her own. There are two magazine cut outs showing the "Members of the Ohio State Dental Laboratory Guild and Their Ladies," in which the woman is seen with her husband F. C. Hoffman. The first few photos are of the woman's family standing solemnly together with very few smiles; however, the vast majority of the photos are of the woman and her friends having adventures together. Some of the photos are of the young people at a lake, swimming at the beach, camping in the woods, and visiting different cities and locations some of which include Chicago and Geneva, Ohio. Later photos show the group of friends getting older, having kids, and then their kids becoming adults in a 25 year time span. The woman's son at 18, is pictured wearing a World War II Army uniform in some of the last photos of the album. This extensive multiple era piece shows three decades of fashion, automobiles, and general tom-foolery that young people of the time got into in Ohio. .

        Some thoughts upon liberty and the rights of Englishmen. By a lover of order.

      London: sold by Butterworth and Son; and R. Hunter 1819 - 8vo., (2) + 75 + (1)pp., wanting the half-title, recently well bound in cloth, spine gilt lettered. A fine copy. First edition. Basil Montagu (1770-1851) is interesting. ODNB describes him succinctly as a 'author and legal reformer' but that hardly does him justice. The acknowledged son of John Montagu, 4th Earl of Sandwich, and his mistress, Martha Ray, he led a pretty dissolute life until he was called to the bar in 1798. He thereafter seems to have taken life more seriously, became a legal expert on bankruptcy, publishing inter alia a massive Digest of Bankruptcy Laws> (1805-1807). In 1809 Samuel Romilly, William Allen and Basil Montagu formed the Society for the Diffusion of Knowledge upon the Punishment of Death and the Improvement of Prison Discipline, and in 1816 Montagu served with Allen, James Mill and David Ricardo on the committee tasked with looking into the increase in juvenile delinquency in London. The fact also that Montagu in his student years had been one of the earliest pupils of William Godwin, when he was greatly impressed by Godwin's Political Justice,> confirms his suitability to write about 'liberty and the rights of Englishmen'.

      1819 - [Paris, 1819]. Complete deck of 52 etched hand-coloured transformation cards (a little spotted in places, one card with small abrasure), commenting on the the political situation in France during the restoration of Louis VIII, playfully mixing caricatures of political figures with allegorized titles of political newspapers and burlesque scenes. The knave of spades features the politician and historian Vicomte de Chateaubriand dressed in clerical costume, the knave of clubs depicts Talleyrand as ‘Clopineau’ with political zodiac signs at the top; the queen is ‘Gazette’ and the King of clubs is ‘Dà bats’ showing the editor carrying two large bags inscribed Dà bats and Empire with two asses in the background. The court cards from the suit of hearts are figures representing three popular journals: ‘Figaro’, ‘Minerve’ and ‘Constitutionnel’. Minerva is shown subduing certain evil spirits. The column which the king is defending is inscribed Charte constitutionnel. Libertà de la Presse. Libertà Individuelle. Loi des Elections. Tolà rance. - See The World of Playing Cards, online). The lower denomination cards arrange the coloured symbols in often rude or burlesque scenes, frequently involving bare behinds. The only complete deck we were able to trace is in the BNF.
