RARE FIRST EDITION COPY OF THE SERMON DELIVERED AT ABIGAIL ADAMS FUNERAL, PERSONALLY OWNED BY THE BROTHER OF JOHN AND ABIGAIL ADAMS' DAUGHTER-IN-LAW Rare first edition copy of the sermon delivered at Abigail Adams funeral by the Reverend Peter Whitney at the Church in Quincy, Massachusetts on November 1, 1818, along with a portion of a letter from Thomas Jefferson to John Adams sending his condolences. The pamphlet was originally owned by the brother, Charles Harrod, of John and Abigail Adams' daughter-in-law, Anna Nancy Harrod Adams, who married their son Thomas Boylston Adams. It was then inherited by Charles' grandson, Charles Harrod Boyd, whose ownership signature is on the front cover and then continued to descend through the family until we purchased it from the estate of a direct descendant. John and Abigail were very close to the Harrod family and considered them apart of the Adams' family. We were only able to locate one other copy … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paskevich, Ivan Fedorovich (1782-1856)?]
V Polevoi Tipografii Glavnogo Shtaba 1-i Armii, [Mogilev], 1819. Octavo (17.7 × 11.1 cm). Contemporary patterned calf; all edges gilt; [3], 75, [2], XII pp. Three charts and forms on two folded leaves. Binding rubbed; small private owner labels to front pastedown; else about very good. Second edition of a very rare compilation of instructions for soldiers of the First Russian Imperial Army, with detailed instructions for various types of guardsman service, marching orders, rules for reporting to superiors, as well as behavior during formal military parades. The two folding leaves contain templates for evening reports, reports on arrivals and departures, and arrest sheets. The work appears to be the second edition of a manual published in Mogilev, in today's Eastern Belarus, which appeared in 1818 (according to a copy held at the Russian State Library in Moscow). Similar works are also known to have appeared at Warsaw, the site of the infamous Warsaw Garrison, established in 1813 and reenforced by such famous generals as Ivan F. Paskevich and Barclay de Tolly. Both of these leaders commissioned short collections of instructions for the troops; Paskevich's manual was even considered the first secular book printed at Warsaw. We cannot trace our edition in KVK or OCLC. The only similar text was formerly held by the Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin, but is now marked a war loss. This appears to have been an 1816 edition of the work of Ivan Paskevich, the "Prince of Warsaw." It is possible that the text of our work is also based on either Paskevich's or De Tolly's manuals.

[Polidori, John W.]
Paris: Galignani, 1819. Second edition. Collation [a]6, C-H6. Pp. xxii, [2]; 25-80; 2 ff. [blank]. 1 vols. 12mo. Marbled wrappers, untrimmed, waste paper (list of subscribers) affixed to upper wrapper, 8-page catalogue stitched at front, terminal blank affixed to lower wrapper. Upper wrapper detached; attribution to Dr. Polidori in ink on title page, contemporary signature of Jno. B- on half title, early notes on last blank. Second edition. Collation [a]6, C-H6. Pp. xxii, [2]; 25-80; 2 ff. [blank]. 1 vols. 12mo. Early Paris edition of the notable and notorious Vampyre, initially published in London in March 1819 as from the pen of Lord Byron. Byron swiftly denounced the "bookselling imposture" in a letter to Kinnaird and in a formal letter to Galignani's Messenger on 27 April 1819, but the association with Byron persisted. Polidori claimed authorship with alacrity. The eight-page catalogue of Galignani publications notes this work "was given out as Lord Byron's on its late publication in London" in the list of works by Byron on page 3. The notes on the terminal blanks suggest a contemporary American ownership. The "Extract of a letter from Geneva" (p. [v]-xiii), giving an outline of the legendary gathering at Villa Diodati where Mary Shelley began to write Frankenstein, and the spurious "Extract of a letter, containing an account of Lord Byron's residence in the island of Mitylene" (p. [67]-80) have been ascribed to John Mitford. UNCOMMON. OCLC: 38531594

Bible. N.T. Turkish. Ali Ufki. 1819.
British and Foreign Bible Society], 1819. Darlow and Moule report that this is "apparently the earliest Arabo-Turkish edition" of the New Testament, and North and Nida corroborate that, having found no earlier printing. "The earliest translation of the scriptures into Osmanli was made in the 17th century [in Constantinople] by Albertus Bobovius (Bobowsky), a Pole by birth. . . . Publicly embracing the Moslem faith, he received the name of Ali Bey. . . . [He] translated the entire Christian Scriptures [in manuscript] into Osmanli [i.e., Ottoman Turkish]. . . . In 1814 the B.F.B.S. obtained the loan of this MS. from the University of Leyden" (Darlow & Moule). Editing began in 1815 and printing in 1817, but the death of the editor, Jean Daniel Kieffer, in April 1817 delayed publication until 1819. => While this Testament is in Turkish, it is printed in Arabic characters. We must also point out that there are copies reported as ending on page 483 -- those copies lack the index and are incomplete.

Forbin, Louis Nicolas Philippe Auguste
Paris, de l'Imprimerie Royale, 1819. Text vol. in 8vo and atlas in folio (670 x 503 mm). (4), 460 pp. (4), 65 pp. Half-titles in both vols.; 80 lithographed, sepia aquatint or engraved plates and plans, the 8 fine aquatints by Debucourt after Forbin, the lithographed subjects for G. Engelmann after Lecomte, Deseynes, Castellan, Carle, and Horace Vernet, Fragonard, Thiénon, Legros, Isabey and others, large folding engraved plan at the end of text vol. 19th century marbled half calf with giltstamped title to gilt spine. First edition. Only 325 copies of this work were produced. "Forbin's was one of the first important French books to use lithography on a grand scale, and the standard of production is equal to that of Napoléon's 'Description de l'Egypte' or Denon's 'Voyage'" (Navari, Blackmer). Forbin succeeded Denon as director of museums in 1816 and was authorised to purchase antiquities for the Louvre (his son-in-law, Marcellus, expedited the acquisition of the recently discovered Venus de Milo). In August 1817 he began a year-long journey to the Levant accompanied by the artist Pierre Prévost and the engineer de Bellefonds. His journey took him to Melos, Athens, Constantinople, Smyrna, Ephesus, Acre, Jaffa, Jerusalem, Cairo, Luxor, and Thebes. - This set includes the frequently lacking 8vo text volume: this has the plan of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre bound at the end with a list of plates which were sold separately. The atlas volume repeats the text (entirely reset in-folio, sometimes found in a separate folio volume) and includes the magnificent, highly desirable pla … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: R. Ackermann, 1819. First Edition. Box. Very Good Plus. English match game housed in its original treen slide-top box. With 79 of 84 pieces, which are three segments of a total of 28 hand-colored cards. Each of the cards is split into three sections -- top of head; nose; mouth, chin and shoulders. Originally 28 cards, for a total of 84 pieces, the fun is the mixing and matching. Missing from this set are five of the 84 pieces -- one head piece and four nose pieces. Still this allows for a staggering number of permutations -- something close to 20,000 possibilities -- and one is unlikely to notice the tiny deficiency when casually viewing the contents. The portraits, unscrambled, include that of Napoleon and Admiral Nelson. The slide lid has a lacquered print applied to it. When pulled out, it reveals three wells or sections, the center nose section being thinner than that of the head and lower piece. The box has some wear on the print and elsewhere. .

Several text illus. fine half green morocco gilt, First Edition of this famous voyage, which marked the resurgence of British interest in the search for the North-West Passage, and inaugurated the great arctic explorations and discoveries of the nineteenth century. Among Ross's officers on the voyage were William Edward Parry, James Clark Ross, and Edward Sabine. Setting out in April of 1818, the expedition rediscovered Baffin?s Bay and its three Sounds, Smith, Jones, and Lancaster, thereby vindicating the reports made by William Baffin in 1616. Sailing some distance into Lancaster Sound, Ross sited a mirage which he believed to be a range of mountains blocking further passage. These he named the Croker Mountains in honour of the first secretary of the Admiralty, J.W.Croker. On his return to England, Ross's report was initially accepted as conclusive and he was promoted to Captain, but his contention that Lancaster Sound was landlocked was disputed by other members of the crew, notably by his second-in-command, William Edward Parry. Parry's view was supported by Sir John Barrow, second secretary of the Admiralty, with whom Ross … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wilson, James, Philomath
London: W. Hughes, 1819. First Edition. Octavo. . xxii, 410 pages, plates I-III and full page diagrams with many in text illustrations. This was a thorough compilation of information on the practice and theory of judicial astrology. As such, it was a rare kind of book to be published before the relative boom of the 1830s. Wilson's intention was to render astrology 'open to examination and experiment' (Wilson, iv), in order that people might prove or disprove its worth for themselves. His work commended Ptolemy and Placidus but occasionally criticized the former, which earned him the opprobrium of his contemporary, John Worsdale. Nothing is known of his life and personal circumstances. In the 1846 Methodist Review article on the black arts, Wilson's work was already scarce but considered definitive since it became one of the foundational books for modern astrology. Bookplate of D.G. Nelson, Astrological and Occult Books, Chicago opened in Chicago since 1916 and was the center for the strong occult groups in Chicago for over a hundred years. A handsome copy bound in 3/4 polished calf over marbled paper covered boards, all edges marbled, raised bands ruled in gilt, red morocco spine label gilt, tiny spot of wear to head, light wear to edges of p. 167.

Thomas Campbell [Editor]
John Murray. Complete in seven volumes. Volume I contains an essay on English poetry. The remaining volumes contain biographical and critical notes of the most prominent British poets, with examples of their works, chronologically arranged from 1400 to 1805. Volume II covers Chaucer, 1400, to Beaumont, 1628. Volume III Drayton, 1631, to Phillips, 1664. Volume IV Shirley, 1666, to Prior, 1721. Volume V Sewell, 1726, to Carey, 1763. Volume VI Churchill, 1764, to Johnson, 1784. Volume VII Whitehead, 1785, to Anstey, 1805. Thomas Campbell (27 July 1777 - 15 June 1844) was a Scottish poet chiefly remembered for his sentimental poetry dealing especially with human affairs. He was also one of the initiators of a plan to found what became the University of London. In 1799, he wrote The Pleasures of Hope, a traditional 18th century survey in heroic couplets. He also produced several stirring patriotic war songs--Ye Mariners of England, The Soldier's Dream, Hohenlinden and in 1801, The Battle of Mad and Strange Turkish Princes. In 1812 Campbell found a new source of income as a result of the expanding demand for public lectures, and gave a successful series at the Royal Institution on poetry. Later he was received enthusiastically in Liverpool and Birmingham, and Walter Scott suggested he should allow himself to be offered a chair at Edinburgh University. This he declined, but his success as a lecturer contributed to the good reception of his Specimens of the British Poets (1819). The project had been in hand since 1805, originally as a collaboration with Walter Scott, but it was com … [Click Below for Full Description]

Boston: J.T.

It was a bloody scene and it is rehearsed in great detail in this pamphlet. There was $40,000 aboard so the mutiny was piratically motivated. The villains split up the money, sailed to Denmark and were arrested in Copenhagen where the mate, a hostage of sorts, blew the whistle on them. The case was heard by the renowned jurist Joseph Story. The jury found all except Nathaniel White guilty of piracy, and they were hung in January 1820. It made quite a splash in its day, and several sensational narratives beside this one were published. "The confessions paint a picture of the rugged life at sea in those times." - McDade 1099. Stab sewn and untrimmed as issued. lacks back blank wrapper.
