Rowden, Frances Arabella
Longman & Co, London, 1820. Contemporary half roan over marbled boards. Extremities rubbed and joints cracking but holding firm. Light scattered foxing to preliminary and terminal contents, with majority of textblock unmarked and clean. Faint ownership signature in pencil of Miss Fartham to front endpaper. Early pen corrections to pages 35, 81, 149, 166. Measuring approximately 110 x 180mm and collating [10], xiv, 180: complete, including engraved frontis, title, note to parents, dedication, and subscribers. A scarce little volume designed to assist in girls' educations, OCLC records 6 copies (1 of those in the US); and the present is the only copy on the market. This slender volume was designed for the use of schools and governesses, and Rowden drew on her own experiences educating girls in both spaces. The daughter of an educated clergyman, she served as the governess to the family of Lord Bessborough, was the private tutor to Mary Russell Mitford, and taught at St. Quintan's School where her students included Lady Caroline Lamb and Letitia Elizabeth Landon (later known as the poet L.E.L.). An insert to this text addresses "To the Parents and Guardians" announces further that "Mrs. Rowden has formed an establishment in Paris, where the elegant accomplishments are combined with every useful attainment." A Biographical Sketch provided "young scholars," in compact form, "with a general idea of the rise and progress of classical learning, and the connexion between ancient and modern literature." Knowing the past is the key to understanding the present and shaping the future; … [Click Below for Full Description]

FRASER James Baillie 1783-1856
VG, 1820, 1st ed, 1 large folding map. Modern calf spine, gilt tooling, raised bands, gilt titles to black calf label, over worn contemporary blue marbled boards, vellum tipped. Internally, [3], (vi-xx), [3], 4-548 pp, 1 map (large folding, some minor browning), lacks the half title, hinges strengthened, Worcester Library label to fpd. (Signatures [3]ff, b-c2, B-4A2). (295*236 mm). (Abbey Travel 498. Prideaux p 336. Lowndes V2, p). Intended to accompany Fraser's own "Views in the Himala Mountains" published in the same year, 1820. "Scottish explorer and author James Baillie Fraser (1783-1856) published this account of his Himalayan journey through Nepal and India in 1820. (His 1826 book describing his travels in the lesser-known provinces of Persia is also reissued in this series.) Part I begins with a historical sketch of Nepal, the reasons for the outbreak of war between Nepal and British India in 1814 and the course and consequences of the war. The remainder of the book describes Fraser's travels through previously inaccessible mountainous areas to Jamunotri and Gangotri, the sources of the rivers Jumna and Ganges. Fraser admits in his preface that he is not an expert in any of the fields which would give his account scientific value, but he offers detailed descriptions of villages, temples and 'grand scenery', and of a people 'as they appeared before an intercourse with Europeans had in any degree changed them'." - OCLC.

Peter Force
Washington, D.C: Davis and Force, 1820. See item description. Eleven volumes from Peter Force's annually published 14-volume series, THE NATIONAL CALENDAR. The complete 14-volume series spans the years, 1820 through 1836, and the 11 volumes offered here do not include the CALENDAR for the years 1820, 1830, and 1835. Force did not publish any volumes for 1825, 1826, and 1826. These rare books are in varying degrees of wear and individually are described below. If you want to view the Table of Contents for any particular volume, please let me know via eBay's communication system. EBay allows for five photographs to be attached per e-mail and the length of some of the Tables of Contents will require me to send photographs via two e-mails. All volumes are complete, except Volume 5, which is missing Pages 17 through 20, plus a foldout that follows Page 280. I will supply these missing pages as xeroxes from the Volume 5 in my own library. The rarity of these books is exemplified by the lack of similar first edition volumes available for sale on eBay, Amazon, and the Advanced Book Exchange. Currently (July 26th) anyone trying to put together the complete 14-volume series would find that seven volumes (3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 20, and 12) in varying conditions could be acquired elsewhere at a minimum cost of ($260+$180+100+$100+$99+$37.50+$50=) $826.50, plus shipping. And this would be for only seven of the 14 volumes that comprise this series.

LANE, W.
London, : Printed for, and Published by, Robert Blachford & Co., Chart Sellers to the Admiralty and Honorable East India Company, Navigation Warehouse, 79, Leadenhall Street,, 1820. Compiled and Drawn, from the Admiralty Records, by W. Lane, Hydrographer and Teacher of Navigation, Naval Academy, 79, Leadenhall Street, London. [1821]. Engraved broadsheet, with two engraved maps, fine original hand-colour, paste-over to right-hand portion of ‘Plan of Lancaster Sound’, letterpress text below. A rare broadsheet comprising a letterpress title and two engraved maps; the North Pole map entitled ‘Map of the North Polar Regions’, the second entitled ‘Plan of Lancaster Sound, penetrated by Capt. Parry, in July 1819’. The maps were edited from Admiralty Records by W. Lane, a teacher of navigation employed by Robert Blachford. The maps are set above an extensive panel of text of ‘Interesting Particulars of the Voyage’, recounting Parry's discoveries in the unsuccessful quest for a Northwest Passage, ending with his landfall in the Orkneys on 28th October 1820. Although Parry failed to find the elusive Northwest Passage, he did establish that a westward route existed through Lancaster Sound. He also began to map the numerous islands through which the Northwest Passage would have to be navigated. Beyond this Parry demonstrated that, with sufficient provisions, a ship and crew could winter successfully above the Arctic Circle. The text itself gives some fascinating details of the voyage including: a bear being attracted to the ship by the smell of frying herring (the bea … [Click Below for Full Description]

Intérieur frais, reliures fraîches. les feuillets en regard des feuillets de garde sont légèrement et partiellement brunis. Nouvelle édition. Bien que cette édition soit postérieure de plusieurs décennies aux premières éditions de 1782, elle est fort bien imprimée et illustrée de 6 charmantes gravures sur acier d'après Devéria. "Bible du libertinage pour certains, le livre s'impose surtout comme chef-d'œuvre du roman d'analyse, comme un des romans les plus abstraits et les plus intelligents. Aussi l'audace des Liaisons Dangereuses ne consiste-t-elle ni dans la débauche facile au langage cru, ni dans la perversité au premier degré ou la jouissance de faire le mal propre à Sade, mais dans l'art de dire ou plutôt de l'écrire pour un connaisseur admiratif et un peu vexé, placé en position de voyeur comme le lecteur" (Laurent Versini, BnF, En français dans le texte , n° 174).

SEABORN, Capt. Adam (pseud.)
New York: printed by J. Seymour,, 1820. The first science fiction novel written by an American Duodecimo. Uncut in original drab boards, rebacked with printed spine lettering in facsimile, front board and front endpapers skilfully replaced to style. Housed in a dark blue flat-back cloth box by the Chelsea Bindery. Woodcut diagram of the interior of the Earth printed on p. [iv]. Two early ownership inscriptions to title, one in red ink, the other manuscript, and "No. 37" in ink. Title faintly darkened, faint foxing throughout due to the paper stock used, a couple of gatherings a little carelessly opened, but a very good copy, entirely untrimmed, the title and woodcut diagram both in strong, dark impressions, sympathetically restored to reflect original condition as issued. Rare first edition, first impression, of the book rightly considered the first science fiction novel written by an American. Published two years after Frankenstein, the book utilizes the hollow earth theory of John Cleves Symmes Jr. to create the first in a long line of hollow-earth lost race fiction. Captain Adam Seaborn is a pseudonym in keeping with the other names used in the text. The book has been attributed to Symmes himself, although in view of the satirical element, this is inherently unlikely. A more plausible candidate proposed was Nathaniel Ames (1796-1835), whose A Mariner's Sketches (1830) was a source for Melville's White Jacket, but it is earlier than Ames's other published work and it may be that Ames was simply in thrall to Symzonia. The book has also been claimed as a powerful influ … [Click Below for Full Description]

Imprenta de Los Expòsitos, 1820.

Señor Don Martin Rodriguez. Rosario y Noviembre 10 de 1820. Paisano y amigo de mi aprecio. A noche he llegado à este destino acompañado ...Broadside. 4to. First edition. A very good copy, small blind stamp in lower margin, light foxing to fore edge. Zinny: Bibliografía histórica p. 396, No. 248. Not in Fors. A remarkable document issued at a particularly critical moment in Argentine history, this letter concerns the formation of a federal government in the provinces of Buenos Aires, Santa Fé, and Entre Ríos by the selection of representatives from each. Lopez announces that his representatives have been elected and calls for peace: "Let bloodshed and our disputes stop and let us have a stable reconciliation so that we can leave behind this state of anarchy."

Washington, D.C: Davis and Force, 1820. See item description. Eleven volumes from Peter Force's annually published 14-volume series, THE NATIONAL CALENDAR. The complete 14-volume series spans the years, 1820 through 1836, and the 11 volumes offered here do not include the CALENDAR for the years 1820, 1830, and 1835. Force did not publish any volumes for 1825, 1826, and 1826. These rare books are in varying degrees of wear and individually are described below. If you want to view the Table of Contents for any particular volume, please let me know via eBay's communication system. EBay allows for five photographs to be attached per e-mail and the length of some of the Tables of Contents will require me to send photographs via two e-mails. All volumes are complete, except Volume 5, which is missing Pages 17 through 20, plus a foldout that follows Page 280. I will supply these missing pages as xeroxes from the Volume 5 in my own library. The rarity of these books is exemplified by the lack of similar first edition volumes available for sale on eBay, Amazon, and the Advanced Book Exchange. Currently (July 26th) anyone trying to put together the complete 14-volume series would find that seven volumes (3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 20, and 12) in varying conditions could be acquired elsewhere at a minimum cost of ($260+$180+100+$100+$99+$37.50+$50=) $826.50, plus shipping.

[SLAVE TRADE].
XIV, 259, [1]; [4], 205, [1] pp.First edition of this rare manual for British naval officers, reprinting in full the texts of all the treaties signed between the Gulf Sheikhdoms and the United Kingdom between 1820 and 1847. - The first agreement is the General TReaty with the Friendly Arabs, signed at Ra's al-Khayman in 1820 (pp. 144-146). Arab signatories include "Sheikh Shakbool", that is Tahnun b. Shakhbut, Sheikh of the Bani Yas and ruler of Abu Dhabi from 1818 to 1833, "Sultin bin Sugger", or Sultan bin Saqr al-Qasimi, ruler of Sjarjah, and the "Sheikh pf Dubey", who in later agreements is named explicitly as Maktum b. Bati, who announced the independence of Dubai from Abu Dhabi in 1833 and founded the Maktoum dynasty. The treaty binds the Arab sheikhdoms to aid the British against piracy in the Gulf, illustrating that the British, despite their naval supremacy, found their interests genuinely threatened by the activities of Arab sailors in the region. A further set of agreements, signed in 1838, with the chief of Abu Dhabi, now known as "Kaleefa ben Shakbool", gives the British the righ to detain and search any ships entering their ports which are suspected of carrying slaves. The final set of treaties, agreed with the various Gulf sheikhs over the course of 1847, including the chief of Bahrein, Muhammad b. Khalifah b. Subman, gives licence to British cruizers to seize any ships suspected of involvement in the slave trade. These "Instructions" were published in light of the Brussels Anti-Slavery Conference of 1889-90; the year of publication was also that of the Exclu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Shakespeare, William
London: Printed for J. Walker, 1820. Stereotype edition. Twelve octavo volumes (8 1/4 x 4 7/8 in; 210 x 123 mm). Bound in contemporary full crimson straight-grained morocco with triple gilt fillets bordering a richly gilt frame and elaborately gilt spine. Decorative gilt board edges and turn-ins. Pale orange endpapers, all edges gilt. A few headcaps expertly and almost invisibly repaired. Engraved portrait and numerous plates designed by John Thurston. A Fine and handsome set. Isaac Reed (1742-1807), biographer and bibliophile, was an English Shakespearean editor. He produced a "first variorum" edition of Shakespeare in 21 volumes published in 1803 upon which the edition under notice is based. This edition was illustrated by John Thurston (1774-1822) was an English engraver who began his artistic career in copperplates, working for James Heath. He then took up book illustration and soon devoted himself to it. Most of his illustrations were engraved on block, not plate; a writer in the Polytechnic Journal was later to describe him as "at that time the principal, and indeed almost only artist of any talent in London who made drawings on the block for wood engravers." A lovely example of Shakespeare's comedies, tragedies, and histories.
