Motherwell, William (1797-1835), Scottish poet
n.p n.d n.p, n.d. 8vo. . Consisting of three-sixteen line verses apparently addressed to "May," a manuscript correction and light soiling, else very good . A Scottish poet and literary man, Motherwell edited "The Harp of Renfrewshire" in 1819, wrote "Renfrewshire Characters and Scenery" as "Isaac Brown" in 1824 and in 1827 his work "Minstrelsy Ancient and Modern" brought him to the attention and subsequent friendship of Sir Walter Scott. He collaborated with Hogg on the 1835 edition of Burns. He was also at one time the editor of the "Glasgow Courier" and the "Paisley Advertiser." He was among the earliest to use Scandinavian mythology in his verse, an authority on ballads and was known for the wide range of emotion expressed in his verse. Among his best known poems were "Jeanie Morison" and "The Battle Flag of Sigurd."With a manuscript attestation reading "The preceeding verses are Motherwell, and in his hand writing. David Robertson, Glasgow, 6 Aug. 1849." David Robertson had published "The Poetical Works of William Motherwell" in Glasgow, 1847, the engraved title of which accompanies the manuscript

(Map)
New York: May 7, 1819. 1 vols. Image 23 x 12 inches, framed. Manuscript Map of a Block in Old New York, 1819. Mr. Gardner's block, on Manhatten's Lower East Side, is bounded by Norfolk, Stanton, Suffolk and Rivington Streets, and consists of 32 numbered parcels of surveyed land, 16 fronting on Norfolk Street and 16 on Suffolk Street, each 25 feet wide and 100 feet deep. Four Norfolk Street parcels are tinted, evidently to indicate leases, as pencilled on these are the names Lawrence, Pessenger, and Tappen (2 parcels). (There were several prominent Tappens in New York at this time, and doubtless some obscure ones; we have not been able to determine which Tappen this might have been). Off Suffolk Street, diagonally across from Gardner's block, the words "Delancy's Farm" have been inked in, another familiar New York name, surviving in today's Delancy Street. An historic and interesting glimpse of Old New York. Fine.

MARCET, Alexander.
London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, 1819. The Second Edition. 8vo. Completely in its original publisher's state with grey paper covered boards, soiled, remnant of paper title label to chipped spine; joints starting; corners worn. Edges untrimmed, pages uncut. Publisher's Recently Published Medical Works leaflet, dated Sept. 1820, present at the begining of the book. Owner's name in ink in a contemporary hand. A couple of pages at the start and end of the book with a couple of spots / stains; the text and plates are clean. Illustrated with 10 plates of which 4 coloured, with tissue guard. The binding has done its work in keeping the book internally nearly intact, but has suffered in doing so. Very good copy indeed of a work seldom found. Alexander Marcet (1770-1822) was an authority on urinary calculi and their analysis when few medical practitioners appreciated the usefulness of chemistry in the explanation and treatment of disease. In An Essay on The Chemical History and Medical Treatment of Calculous Disorders, he described the discovery of an xanthine stone. He drew line illustrations of simple chemical apparatus useful for bedside analysis. His microtechnique used drops of solution and pinhead pieces of calculi; reagents were acids and alkalies and the blowpipe in conjunction with a small alcohol lamp. He reported the earliest description of a disorder later named "alcaptonuria". Marcet's work and that of a few others, on the chemical composition of urine and calculi, laid the foundations of our present knowledge. Between 1807 and 1820, his lectur … [Click Below for Full Description]

Embossed library stamp to the title page only, mild browning, else a very good, clean copy. Uncoloured aquatint frontispiece "with a basis in line and stipple" (Abbey) and 4 uncoloured aquatint plates. First edition in English. "In 1817, Moritz von Kotzebue, son of the famous German playwright August von Kotzebue, travelled to Persia in the cortège of a Russian embassy sent to the encampment of Fat?-?Ali Shah at Sol?aniya. Moritz von Kotzebue, then a young lieutenant in Russian service, kept a very informative journal of this embassy, which was soon afterwards published by his father in Weimar. The embassy left Tbilisi in mid-April 1817 and arrived in Tabriz on the 18 May, where the czar's envoy was received by ?Abbas Mirza, the crown prince. Kotzebue gave a very valuable description of the audience with the crown prince. After eight days, the embassy left Tabriz for Soltaniya via Zanjan. The envoys reached their destination on the 26 July 1817 and Fat?-?Ali Shah eventually received the embassy at the 31 July 1817. At the end of August 1817, the embassy left the shah's encampment and travelled back to Russia by way of Tabriz and Erivan" (Encyclopaedia Iranica). On its publication by his father Kotzebue's journal was extremely well received, being read with "keen interest" by Goethe who had recently published his Orientalist West-östlicher Divan.

New-York: for the Author, by Kirk & Mercein, 1819. 8vo, original blue boards, rebacked, with original backstrip label laid down. 228, i-[lx], [10], lxi-lxiii pp. Three folding maps, one colored in outline, inevitable foxing, but a very good, untrimmed copy. First Edition. A complicated book, as the maps may number one or three and be colored or uncolored; and there may or may not be an errata slip. This copy lacks the latter, although pp. 7-8, "To the Reader, " contains numerous corrections of errata. In this copy the index is bound between "Addenda no. III" and "Addenda no. IV." As the book's very long title makes clear, Darby -- a surveyor and geographer -- was obsessive about including every detail that pertained to his travels. This copy bears on the title-page the stamp of " J. S. Skinner. / 1832, " surely referring to the eminent sporting and agricultural writer John Stuart Skinner (for whom see DAB). Bradford 1193.

London, 1819. Only ed. An Important English Penal Reformer Roscoe, William [1753-1831]. Observations on Penal Jurisprudence, And the Reformation of Criminals. With an Appendix; Containing the Latest Reports of the State-Prisons or Penitentiaries of Philadelphia, New-York, and Massachusetts; And Other Documents. London: Printed for T. Cadell and W. Davies, 1819. iv, 179, [1], 144 pp. Two folding tables. Octavo (9" x 5-3/4"). Contemporary gray paper boards, contrasting printed paper spine label, untrimmed edges. A few inkstains, moderate rubbing with wear to spine ends and corners, front joint cracked but secure, rear joint starting. Early armorial bookplate and shelf label to front pastedown, most signatures uncut, internally fresh. $650. * Only edition. The early nineteenth century was a watershed period in the history of penology. Many important contributions were made at this time by such luminaries as Bentham, Lieber, Livingston and Tocqueville. Roscoe's work was equally important. Believing that retribution should play no part in criminal jurisprudence, he advocated milder punishments, believing they would reform the criminal. He later published two companion volumes, Additional Observations on Penal Jurisprudence, And the Reformation of Criminals (1823) and Observations on Penal Jurisprudence, And the Reformation of Criminals, Part III (1825).

Neal, John.
Baltimore: N.G. Maxwell (pr. by B. Edes), 1819. 18mo (15.6 cm, 6.2"). Add. engr. t.-p., 272 pp. Second, expanded edition, following the first of the previous year, of the author's second published book. In addition to the title piece, the volume includes "Goldau: Or the Maniac Harper," along with a few shorter works. Neal, who went on to become a prominent voice in 19th-century American literature, describes in the preface here his distress over the first edition, which he calls "crowded and disfigured with innumerable errors — chiefly typographical, however; though in some cases, whole lines were left out. . . ." Alas, this edition also required an errata leaf.         BAL 14856; Shaw & Shoemaker 48824; Wegelin 1066. On Neal, see: Dictionary of American Biography. Period-style quarter tan cloth over light blue paper–covered boards, spine with printed paper label. Dedication page and a few others (not including title) stamped by a now-defunct institution. Waterstaining to upper margins and some inner page parts, with final leaves darkened and a few spotted with foxing. Some upper edges chipped; final leaf with inner margin repaired.

MELLING, Antoine Ignace (1763-1831)
Paris: P. Didot l'ain�, 1819. Paris: P. Didot l'ainé, 1819. Etching with engraving by the Pillement sons and Née after Melling with later professional hand-coluring. Proof before title. Very good condition. A fine view of an aqueduct in the Belgrade Forest of Constantinople, from Melling's grand work 'Voyage Pittoresque de Constantinople et des rives du Bosphore'. Born in Lorraine in 1763, Antoine Ignace Melling, artist and voyager, was trained in architecture and painting. At the age of 19, he went to Constantinople as part of the Russian Ambassador's retinue. After successfully completing several commissions for Hatice Sultan, the sister of Selim III, which included the renovation of her palace at Ortakeï, Melling was employed as the Sultan's architect in 1795. His position as royal architect gave him a privileged opportunity to observe the Ottoman court, and during his eighteen years there, he made many detailed drawings of the sultan's palaces, Ottoman society, and Constantinople and its environs. Within a year of returning to Paris in 1803, Melling published a prospectus for the 'Voyage pittoresque', the first thirteen livraisons of which were published in 1809. He completed the engravings for this work in 1819. Cf. Atabey 798; cf. Blackmer 1105; cf. Brunet III, 1591; cf. Lipperheide 1431.

CROSWELL, Harry?]
Published by Flagg & Gray, New Haven, 1819. First edition. 12mo. Printed self-wrappers. 23, [1]pp. Ink splash, and signature of S.P. Staples on the front wrap, else a near fine copy. Signed "Harry Croswell" in ink at the conclusion of the text (whether by Croswell or not we do not know). Croswell (1778-1858) ran a fiercely Federalist newspaper, The Balance and Columbian Repository, noted for its vituperative articles, and was often sued for libel. The most celebrated of these was an article on Jefferson, published in the Wasp, a paper controlled by Mr. Croswell. Alexander Hamilton's last speeches were made in Croswell's defense at the trial. After being forced from the newspaper trade, he took up the cloth and was ordained in 1815, when he became rector of Trinity Church in New Haven. This appears to be an attack on a Congregationalist minister who has had the temerity to attack the Episcopal church. [Attributes: First Edition]

The book is complete and has a very attractive modern full leather binding. Noah served as U.S. Consul to Tunis and was the first American Jew to receive an overseas diplomatic assignment. Descriptions of daily life and social customs of the Muslims and Jews comprise a valuable window into the intrigues of that historical time. Noah (1785-1851) was a lawyer, playwright, and journalist. He was born in Philadelphia of Portuguese-Jewish ancestry. "In 1813 [he] was appointed consul to Tunis, with a special mission to Algers. He was instructed to negotiate for the release of some Americans held as prisoners by the Algerine pirates. On May 23, 1813, he sailed from Charleston, but his vessel being captured by the British, he was taken to England and detained two months. In October he arrived in Cadiz, where he contracted with Richard R. Keene, an American who had become a Spanish subject, to effect the release of the twelve Americans After being detained in France and Spain for more than a year, Noah finally arrived in Tunis.
