        The Huntingdon Peerage

      London - Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy 1820 - A first edition of Bell's work on the history and restoration of the earldom of Huntingdon. First Edition. Featuring an engraved portrait frontispiece and one engraved portrait plate. Contains a fold-out genealogical table. 'Comprising a detailed account of the evidence and proceedings connected with the recent restoration of the earldom; together with the report of the Attorney-General on that occasion'. 'To which is prefixed a genealogical and biographical history of the illustrious House of Hastings, including a memoir of the present earl and his family'. Henry Nugent Bell (17921822) was an Irish genealogist. Bell followed the profession of a legal antiquary, and, in order to obtain a recognised status, entered himself at the Inner Temple, 17 Nov. 1818. In the same year he acquired considerable distinction by his successful advocacy of the claim of Mr. Hastings to the long-dormant earldom of Huntingdon; the estates, however, were legally invested in the Earl of Moira's family. Bell published a detailed account of the proceedings in The Huntingdon Peerage, and the narrative of his various adventures, which are given at length, displays a suspicious luxuriance of imagination not altogether in keeping with what professed to be a grave genealogical treatise. To the unsold copies a new title- page was affixed in 1821, with a genealogical table and additional portraits. Condition: In a half calf binding with marbled boards. Externally, sound, rubbed in places. Internally, firmly bound. Some scattered light foxing prominent to the last few pages and the plates. Stain to fore-edge. Copperplate ink signature to first blank. Slight tear to the paper of the front pastedown. Overall: VERY GOOD. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Three-quarter length portrait of a seated John Clare, facing left. Watercolour by William Hilton after his full-size portrait in oils now in the National Portrait Gallery.

      [c.1820] Image 19 x 16.5cm; the background varnished, with sl. crazing in places. In a handsome contemporary gilt frame, glazed, approx. 31.5 x 28cm, 4.5cm deep. The frame is a little rubbed, with chipping & repair to small section of ornamentation, upper left corner.Commissioned by Clare's publisher John Taylor in 1820, the original oil painting prompted a contemporary art critic to exclaim "What life in the eyes! What ardent thirst for excellence, and what susceptibility to the outward expression in the quivering lips". This smaller version shows a more romanticised version of the poet than is depicted in the original, having a gentler, slimmer, and less ruddy face. The portrait in oils was engraved by Edward Scriven as the frontispiece to

        Crown Calendar, Lent Assizes, 1820, Holden at the Castle of Lincoln... William Thompson Corbett, Esq. Sheriff

      Lincoln: Drury and Son, 1820. Broadside measuring 365 x 180 mm., a little foxed, good condition. Sobering insights into the plight of the poor. Ephemeral broadsheet calendar of prisoners, including a considerable listing of men and women sentenced for transportation, from the Lent Assizes. Dated 1820, the sheet dates from the late Macquarie era, and is a scarce survival of a legal system increasingly reliant upon Australia. Here some 22 souls are listed for transportation, for various crimes including violent assault, housebreaking, larceny, and the like. This historical document gives keen insight into the desperation arising from acute poverty; we learn for example, of the fate of Fanny Glendall, aged 21, found guilty of the wilful murder of her baby and concealing the crime.

        [K543]. Sinfonie von Mozart Oev.[!] 58. [Manuscript full score]

      [?Germany]. [?after 1820]. Oblong quarto. Early stiff blue wrappers with oval cut paper label to upper titled in manuscript: "Sÿmphonie in Es von W: A: Mozart. Partitur." [i] (title), [2]-[84] pp. Carefully notated in black ink on heavy paper with fifteen pre-ruled staves. Oval handstamp to foot of upper wrapper and title. In the hand of an unknown copyist, with a number of corrections, erasures, etc., left incomplete and later used as the basis of a re- orchestration. Original score order: "Viol[in] 1," "Viol[in] 2," "A. Viole" (blank), "Flauti 1" (blank), "Flauti 2" (blank), "Clarinett 1," "Clarinett 2" (both in B-flat), "Corno 1," "Corno 2" (both in E-flat), "Tromp[ette] 1" (blank), "Tromp[ette] 2" (blank), "Bassi" (2 staves), "Fagotti" (2 staves). Overpaste to bassoon parts, pp. [45]- [49]. Revisions in red ink in another hand: "A. Viole" struck through and replaced with "2 Oboes"; "Flauti 1" struck through and replaced with "Corni 3-4 in Es"; "Flauti 2" struck through and replaced with "3 Posaunen." Wrappers worn, stained and frayed with some loss to spine. Slightly soiled, foxed and browned; overpaste to pp. [45]-[49] moderately browned; small paper imperfection to pp. [49]-[50]; stain to p. [56]; dampstaining to inner margins of pp. [57]-[64]; red ink to final leaves slightly water damaged with some offsetting; handstamp to title illegible. . Interesting for its re-orchestration for the larger forces of a nineteenth-century orchestra. The idea of introducing a third and fourth horn as well as three trombones points to a time after 1820; the first canonical symphony to employ such forces was Beethoven's ninth (1823). It may be assumed that the parts crossed out - flutes (Mozart has only one) and violas - as well as the unrealized trumpet parts and the completely absent timpani part were supposed to be realized from a published edition, possibly that of Breitkopf & Härtel's of 1814.

        Le General La Fayette

      1820. Lithograph. Printed on india paper and mounted onto thick white wove as issued. In excellent condition. A striking portrait of General Lafayette with a plaque listing the major battles that he participated in. Lafayette's actions during the American Revolution earned him a place in America's pantheon of heroes. Joining the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War, he became one of the first Frenchman to come to America's aid. Through his valiant commitment to the American cause Lafayette became a close associate of George Washington's, and he helped negotiate French aid for the Revolution. He was voted a major general at the age of 20 by the Continental Congress, and his actions at the battle of Yorktown helped corner the British forces, which led to their surrender in 1781. Returning to France, he played an important role in the French Revolution, though the chaos inherent in the situation nearly cost him his life. Ultimately though he was hero in his own country as well as in the New World. In 1824, as the United States approached its 50th anniversary, President Monroe invited General Lafayette to return to America. He enjoyed a hero's welcome and toured the 24 states in triumph. Lafayette had a great love for the United States, a sentiment which is best expressed in his eloquent words to Henry Laurens, the Congressional President; "The moment I heard of America I loved her; the moment I knew she was fighting for freedom I burnt with a desire of bleeding for her; and the moment I shall be able to serve her, at any time, or in any part of the world, will be the happiest of my life". Through his involvement in the American and French revolutions Lafayette became a symbol of the ideals of liberty and a crusader against tyranny. Lafayette's veneration for the United States was so strong that when he returned to France, he took with him a plot of American soil, within which he was buried. Lafayette came to America during this country's birth and his words embody the ideals and sentiments that helped form this country. In a letter to his wife in 1777, he wrote; "The happiness of America is intimately connected with the happiness of all mankind; she is destined to become the safe and venerable asylum of virtue, of honesty, of tolerance, and quality and of peaceful liberty."

Later half calf marbled boards. Challinor, 20, " During the course of its (Organic Remains) publication a transformation had been taking place in the human view of the geological scene. This was due chiefly to the dissemination, orally and by correspondence, of the discoveries of William Smith, but also to independent researches, particularly those by John Farley. Parkinson's three volumes reflect this progress . the work is remarkable for Parkinson's grasp of the previous and contemporary literature of geology and palaeontology and his historical discussion of it. Many well known fossil species are excellently described for the first time, accompanied with beautiful tinted engraved plates of the species." Challinor Primary Literature, 55. Ward & Carozzi, 1735.

        Observations on a general iron rail-way. Shewing its great superiority over all the present methods of conveyance, and claiming the particular attention of all merchants, manufacturers, farmers, and, indeed, every class of society

      London: Baldwin, Cradock and Joy, 1820. First Edition. Quarter calf. Very good. First Edition. Quarter calf. 8vo (215 × 140 mm), pp. 22, [2, blanks]; library stamp of Eccles Hotel, Bantry Bay, to title-page; ownership label of Michael Max to front free endpaper (no. 06002, shelf 092); very good in modern quarter calf over marbled boards. Very rare first edition of Gray's influential work promoting the railway as a medium of transport.Thomas Gray (1788-1848) was one of the first great railway enthusiasts and promoters. 'Whilst he advocated a national railway network he was particularly taken with the idea of railway communication between Liverpool and Manchester ... He was undoubtedly single-minded and opinionated on the subject of railways but his activities surely pushed forward the case for a countrywide railway system and for the inception of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway in particular. He died in poverty in 1848 despite several appeals made to railway companies to help him financially.' (Dawn Smith, The biographical dictionary of Britain's railway personalities, organisations and events 1597-1923, Glebe Publications, Peterlee, Co. Durham, 2007, p. 317).The first edition (offers here) was the first of five editions, only the last of which named Gray as the author. Each edition grew greatly in size, so while this first edition is only 22 pages long, the fifth edition stretched to 233 pages.Ottley 256, 4286, 7756; Skempton 579; Skempton records a copy at the Institution of Civil Engineers.

        Don Juan

      Thomas Davidson, 3000, Hardcover, Book Condition: Fair Condition, Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust JacketFour Volumes of this epic in similar original bindings - blue boards with a cream tape spine strip. Not complete. Volume 1 comprises Cantos I and II - printed in 1820 by Thomas Davidson. The next volume comprises Cantos VI to VIII - printed for John Hunt in 1823. The next volume comprises Cantos XII to XIV and was also printed for John Hunt in 1823. The final volume we hold comprises Cantos XII to XV and XVI - printed for John and H. L. Hunt in 1824. Condition of all four volumes is similar. Boards are marked, bumped and rubbed. Except in the case of volume IV, spine strips are extensively lost, and the latter is well worn. Some foxing, particularly to end papers. Page foredges uncut. Consideration will be given to a requirement to split this set. Note that this is the middle sized (small 8vo) of the three formats that were printed at this time by these printers, and is scarce. The first volume is likely to be a 2nd printing, but the others are firsts. Size: 8vo - over 7? - 9?" tall. Item Type: Book. Category: Poetry; Inventory No: 003350.

        Extraits de l'Examen Critique du Militaire Française,

      Ã‰cole de Saumur, , 1820. suivi des Principes qui doivent déterminer sa Constitution, sa Discipline et son Instruction. 3 volumes in 2, octavo (183 × 115 mm). Contemporary full calf , flat spines, red morocco title- and numbering-pieces, compartments gilt alternately with repeated quatrefoil tools and a large vase device, boards panelled with a vine leaf roll with in a plain rule and hatched roll. 15 well-executed, full-page pen and ink drawings. Slightly worn, now skilfully restored, boards somewhat scratched and a gilt supralibros removed, light browning, occasional foxing, else very good, remains attractive. Neatly written and clearly legible manuscript copy of Bohan's important and uncommon work. Originally published in Geneva 1781, "The third volume, including some extracts of the other two was reprinted Paris 1821 under the title of 'Principes pour monter et dresser les chevaux de guerre.'" (Huth) The revision was carried out by the astronomer Joseph-Jérôme de la Lande, a friend of Bohan's. It is possible that this manuscript relates to this later revision, produced at l'École d'Instruction des Troupes à Cheval at Saumur it similarly reproduces sections of Volume I and II together with the entirety of Volume III. The signature appended to the title pages has in most cases been deliberately defaced, but that of Vol. III reads "Bussière, M. d. E., chef," perhaps Maître d'Equitation? The substantial third volume is entirely concerned with the selection, training and management of horses, particularly in the military context. A handsome manuscript copy of an uncommon text.

Marbled boards. 5 raised bands. TEG. Marbled endpages. Good binding and cover. Wear to extremities. Slight soiling to spine. Small start to boards at head of spine. Clean, unmarked pages. Scattered foxing. Pg135 slightly loose. Toning to verso of some plates. BRYAN, Vol.I, p.308; Perret II/1042; Wäber BSL III/58. James Pattison Cockburn was an artist, author and military officer. After the Napoleonic Wars were over, Cockburn went to stay on the Continent more frequently, working for William Bernard Cooke, an English engraver and publisher. After a tour in Naples and Pompeii, he proceeded north to Northern Italy and the Swiss Alps in the period 1816?22. He produced drawings in sepia as he moved from place to place in the Alps and elsewhere in Italy and Switzerland: vast panoramas and mountain passes figured alongside scenes of streets and market places. The wealth of pictures is explained not only by Cockburn?s mastery of technical means but also, according to the German composer, Louis Spohr, by his use of ?a machine that projected the landscape, in reduced scale, on paper.? Although it is not certain that Spohr was referring to a camera lucida, the sharpness of the images in several sketches done at the time he made his remark in some measure substantiates this hypothesis, if true, it marks the first work of art using the camera lucida.

The first three parts (Nomenclature, Theory of Classification, Descriptive Botany) are extracted from De Candolle's 'Théorie élémentaire de la Botanique'. The remaining part is by Sprengel, by whom the whole was edited in German. The translation did not meet with Candolle's approval: 'M. Sprengel, qui unissant dans l'ouvrage ses idée aux miennes, et dans le titre son nom au mien, en fit un livre vraiment absurde'.
