L'histoire de Venise la plus complète de son époque, et l'un des grands textes de l'historiographie érudite renaissante du début du XIXe siècle. 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

      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]

        A description of the sights, or, instruments for pointing guns; proposed by Major General Sir William Congreve, Bart. for the use of the Navy, and now adopted in that service. With an account of the practice made with them on board H.M.S. Liffey*. To which is added a short review of the proceedings relative to these sights: and a series of instructions for the use of them, shewing that they may also be applied to ascertain the distance of an enemy's ship at sea, and giving a very simple rule for this important application of them.

      London: printed by J. Whiting; published by T. Egerton 1819 - royal 8vo., 3 engraved plates (2 of which are folding), vi + (7) - 25 + (2) + 24 - 55 + (1)pp., including the half-title (which has some soiling), original soiled boards, neatly rebacked. A very good large copy with the contemporary ownership signature of 'Henry Beaufoy**, South Lambeth. April 1820'>, at head of title. Second edition: very rare. [Of the 1st ed. of 1818, OCLC & COPAC find copies only at BL + Camb. + Bodleian: of the 1819 2nd ed. copies located at BL + US Navy Lib. (DC) + US Army Lib. (PA)]. A relatively little known contribution to military technology by William Congreve (1772-1828), best known now for his designs for military rockets, the 'Congreve Rocket system', which he regarded as in every way superior to conventional military and naval ordnance. Among the 18 or so patents taken out by Congreve between May 1808 and February 1827, none appears, however, to be for his gun sights. * H.M.S. Liffey (1813-1827) was a 40 gun (later 50 gun) Endymion-class frigate built for the Royal Navy by Wigram, Wells & Green at Blackwall on the Thames. Launched in 1813, H.M.S. Liffey saw action in the First Burmese War but was finally broken up in July 1827. ** Henry Beaufoy was a son of the astronomer and physicist Mark Beaufoy (1764-1827), a founder member of the Society for the Improvement of Naval Architecture. It was Henry who in 1834 was to publish his father's experimental research into the relationship between hull shapes and water resistance. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      London: Printed for J Hassell, 27, Richard Street, Islington; and sold by all book sellers, 1819. First Edition. Full Leather. Very Good +. 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."

One and 1/2 sheets, A8 B4 (A2 and B1 signed). 24 pp. Laid paper, no watermark, untrimmed deckle edges. Fine.*** A story from the Arabian Nights, the tale of King Feridoun and his vain search for a perfectly happy man. Most of the half sheet (B2r-B4v, pp. 19-24) contains a list of books in wrappers sold by Mechas (Catalogo de alguns Livros que ha para vender brochados em Casa do Editor F. B. O. de M. Mechas...). Either the printer-publisher mistakenly let the story overlap onto a second sheet (with 6 lines on B1r, B1v blank), and decided to fill the rest of the half sheet with a list of his books in wrappers, or, more likely, the pamphlet tale was produced as a vehicle for the advertisement.

      Philadelphia : [Mitchell, Ames and White], 1819. "From Mitchell, Ames & White's third edition of Nicholson's Encyclopedia" (title page). Octavo, plain wrappers, upper section of title page with late nineteenth century paper restoration, [24] pp, illustrated with 4 engraved plates; scattered foxing. Sabin, 77380. Rare. Not in Shaw-Shoemaker, Early American imprints. Series II (1801-1819). The bibliography in Turton's A Manual of the land and fresh-water shells of the British Islands (London, 1840) lists an 1811 Philadelphia edition drawn from the fourth edition of Nicholson's Encyclopedia; however, this may possibly be an error as we can locate no other reference to an 1811 edition.

        Altorf, A Tragedy First Represented in the Theatre of New-York, Feb 19, 1819

      Philadelphia: Published by M. Carey and Son, 1819, 1819. First edition. American Bibliography 50175; Wegelin, Early American Plays, page 82; Hill, American Plays, 334. Text somewhat browned and foxed; very good copy.. 8vo, recent green cloth, dark green morocco label, gilt lettering. The first book by Frances Wright (later D'Arusmont) (1795-1852), a play she began writing in Scotland, but did not publish until after she had moved to the United States in 1818. In the preface, she comments on the friendly reception she has received in the U.S. as a young, unknown author, and how it would have been difficult for her to publish and have performed a play such as this in England. Wright's sentiments were with social reform and progressive movements, and she became an influential abolitionist and promoter of feminist causes.

        The Vision;

      London: Taylor and Hessey,, 1819. or Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise ... Translated by the Rev. Henry Francis Cary... The Second Edition, Corrected. With the Life of Dante, Additional Notes, and an Index. 3 volumes, octavo (215 × 136 mm). Late 19th-century tan polished calf, twin morocco labels to spines lettered gilt, gilt decorated compartments with raised bands, gilt rules and floral stamp to covers, turn-ins gilt, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, silk page markers. Armorial bookplate of F. Reddaway to pastedowns. A touch of faint mottling to covers, cccasional spot of faint foxing to contents. An excellent, fresh set, very attractively bound. Second and best edition of Cary's translation, one of the most important of the Romantic era. "In January 1797 Cary began his translation of Dante's Divina commedia into blank verse. He started with the Purgatorio in 1797–8, but in 1800 he turned his attention to the Inferno, and it was this part which was published first, in 1805–6, accompanied by the Italian text. Sales were small, but Cary continued, and his translation was completed in 1812. As he could not find a publisher he published the work at his own expense (which he could ill afford) in 1814. It was entitled The Vision, or, Hell, Purgatory, and Paradise, of Dante Alighieri, and was printed in three sextodecimo volumes in such small type that it was almost unreadable. Cary was not adept at self-promotion, and his translation initially attracted little attention... Then in October 1817 he made the acquaintance by chance of Coleridge at Littlehampton, and the praise which Coleridge gave to Cary's Dante in a lecture early in 1818 (reinforced by a favourable article by Ugo Foscolo in the Edinburgh Review) led to the sale of 1,000 copies in less than three months, and the publication of a second edition in 1819 ... This work is his chief claim to fame, and it remained a standard text well into the twentieth century, despite the fact that the number of translators of the work between 1782 and 1966 amounted to eighty-four. Cary's version was admired by Wordsworth, Keats, Lamb, Coleridge, Macaulay, and Ruskin, and in 1966 the author of a work on translations of the Divina commedia wrote 'Cary's version still holds its place as a minor classic, thanks to the fact that its author was a competent versifier with some poetic perception' [G. F. Cunningham, The 'Divine comedy' in English: a critical bibliography, 2 vols. (1965–6)]" (ODNB).
