        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.

      1820. [JUVENILE -- OCCUPATIONS]. THE CABINET OF USEFUL ARTS & MANUFACTURES; DESIGNED FOR THE PERUSAL OF YOUNG PERSONS. Dublin: Printed by Christopher Bentham, 19 Eustace-street, 1820. First edition. 10 full-page wood- engraved illustrations, plus tailpieces. vii, [9]-180 pp. The full page illustrations are included in the pagination. Except for two plates illustrating important resources (the beaver and the seal), the plates represent trades. 12mo., 13.5 x 9 cm. In a scruffy, contemporary binding of rustic appearance: worn and soiled gray paper over chipped, scabbard boards, with a leather backstrip laid down. The front hinge is split but the bookblock is sound. Contemporary ink ownership ("Isaac Brown, Jan 1st, 1825") on reverse of frontispiece and some juvenile pencil squiggles in a few margins. Scattered, light foxing and a few creased corners throughout the text leaves. Manufacturing trades are represented by glass, porcelain, linen, rope-making, wool, silk, hats, leather, paper, sugar, and salt, while the useful arts are represented by printing calico, founding type, letterpress printing, and book binding. Coming at the end of the volume, and seeming to fall somewhere between a useful art and manufacturing, is brewing. A rare first edition of this title (OCLC first search lists only 10 copies), with later editions over the following decade printed at Dublin, London, and New York. (Osbourne Collection, p. 110: Dublin, Thos. Courtney, 1821; Kress C.1389: Dublin, W. Folds & Son, 1825).
