        Manuscript Satirical Poem headed "On reading a description of the Tomb erected at Waterloo over the leg of the Marqus of Anglesea."

      No place c 1820 - Single sheet, 4to., manuscript heading followed by three verses of 4 lines each, written in one hand, one side. A humorous satirical poem on supposedly seeing the inscription on the tomb (or monument) erected at Waterloo where was buried the leg which was amputated from Henry William Paget (1768-1854), later Marquis of Anglesea after his being injured at the Battle of Waterloo. We have established that the first two verses along with the heading were published in the "Mirror of Literature" Vol.2. (1823) with minor variations, but not with the third verse which reads:- "The worst of all Fruits as the Gardener's declare is a graft of Old Wood on a Bergami Pear" This is a subtle verse with indirect allusions to the supposed affair of Queen Caroline with the Napolese Gardener Bergami and her "Pair of Legs". The ommission of the third verse from the later printed version for political reasons would indicate that this is either the original or an early contemporary copy. An unusual item

      Buenos Ayres: Imprenta de Los Expòsitos, 1820. First edition. Broadside. A very good copy, small blind stamp in lower margin, light foxing to fore edge. 4to.

López (1786-1839), Caudillo of Santa Fe from 1818 to 1838, was a supporter of Rosas and favored federalism. Martin Rodríguez was a major political leader. After Dorrego's defeat in 1820, he became Governor of Buenos Aires. and arranged the Bernegas Treaty (1820) that established a truce between the Mespotamian Provinces and Buenos Aires. Provenance: Antonio Santamarina (blind stamp).Scarce. OCLC shows a single copy: JCB. Zinny: Bibliografía histórica p. 396, No. 248. Not in Fors.

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

      Drury and Son, Lincoln 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.

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.

        IVANHOE; A Romance. By “The Author of Waverley,” &c

      Edinburgh: Archibald Constable and Co., 1820. 3 volumes. First Edition, with all half-titles present, and the three pages of ads in Vol. III, page 159 numbered correctly. 8vo, contemporary three-quarter calf over marbled boards, the spines with double gilt ruled bands separating the compartments a red morocco lettering pieces to each volume, stamped in gilt. [vi] xxxiii, [blank] 298; [iv], 327; [iv], 371, [blank], 3 ads pp. A handsome set, well preserved in its original bindings, now with sympathetic rebacking incorporating the original morocco lettering labels, internally quite clean, and with a little evidence of age, the contemporary bindings with some light expected age or use evidence at the extremities. FIRST EDITION OF THIS SCARCE AND HIGHLY IMPORTANT WORK. This set with all half-titles and the ads present as is often not the case. The best of Scott?'s historical novels and by far his most famous work. This was Scott's culminating success in a book-selling sense, and marked the highest point both of his literary career and his social prosperity." He was already considered to be the inventor of the historical novel and the success of his Waverley series was immediate and long lasting throughout the English speaking world. Sir Walter Scott?'s romantic tale of the conflict between the Normans and the Saxons is among the most highly regarded works of historical fiction. Among other things, it is one of the earliest tales to so closely associate the legendary figure of Robin Hood as playing a major role in the removal or Prince John from the throne he had stolen from his half-brother Richard the Lionhearted. The collimation of the tale is, in essence, the birth of modern Britain. Yet in spite of the grand nature of the events, Ivanhoe is largely a tale of love- Man and women, father and daughter, king and country. First editions of Sir Walter Scott?'s heroic tale are becoming as hard to find as Prince John?'s heart.

        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
