        Monsr. J. Isabey's Exhibition Rooms, 61 Pall Mall / Salle d'Exhibition de J. Isabey, a Londres

      Published by J. Isabey 1820 - A fascinating view of J. Isabey's picture gallery in Pall Mall, London, by the celebrated American engraver William James Bennett. William James Bennett was born in England, and received his artistic training at the celebrated Royal Academy. He garnered a reputation as an accomplished watercolourist and exhibited many fine landscapes at the Academy's annual exhibitions. Bennett was one of the principle members of the Society of Painters in Watercolours and helped establish watercolour as a prominent medium in England. He displayed an exceptional talent at aquatint and during his career produced many fine prints for some the most lavish English plate books. He emigrated to the United States in 1826, and is best known for his views of American cities, including the Hudson Valley Region, Niagara Falls, and numerous port cities such as New York, Charleston, and Buffalo. Bennett's series of views of American Cities set a standard, and established a compositional formula, for topographical art in America. His views remain the most memorable and beautiful examples of the genre, and they exerted a lasting influence on generations of American artists. This beautiful image of Mr. Isabey's exhibition rooms in Pall Mall is not listed separately amongst Bennett's work, but according to DeSilva and Deak, he completed a number of aquatints in 1820, which are not recorded. It is possible that this picturesque interior scene is one of the images, which was not immediately attributed to Bennett. This charming work closely resembles images published by the leading English printseller Rudolph Ackermann, in particular an image depicting his gallery "The Repository of Arts". As in the Ackermann image, connoisseurs are shown enjoying the exhibition rooms in Isabey's gallery. Jean-Baptiste Isabey (1767-1855) was a French artist and what might be called "artistic entrepreneur". He managed to become Marie Antoinette's artist in residence for miniatures. Later, he designed Napoleon and Josephines and drawings in London of his own work and others. The exhibition should have been more successful than it was, but it coincided with George IV's divorce, during which most British aristocrats fled to their country estates. Deak, William James Bennett p. 3-26; DeSilva, William James Bennett: Painter and Engraver , p. 39-42. Colour-printed aquatint. Printed on wove Whatman paper watermarked 1820. In excellent condition. Image size: 7 ¼ x 9 7/8 inches.

Wollstonecraft, D. Wordsworth, M. Shelley and the Bronte sisters (Oxford Companion to English Literature, p. 843). Recent research, however, has firmly established that six of these thirteen novels, each possessing a "confident-seeming literary style, and broad evangelical emphasis" (Garside) were, in fact, written by Mrs. Elizabeth B. Lester, of whom, alas, little is known.An extremely rare book with only eight copies located in OCLC and KVK, no auction records, and scarce in the marketplace.Garside, Raven and Schöwerling 1820: 45.

      80 pages, including pastedown wrappers. Wood-engraved frontispiece and illustrated throughout with 29 woodcuts and 2 typemetal decorations and a small woodcut device at close. 32mo. Original plain sugar-paper wrappers, with later [1820] ownership inscription.

Item 65 in Alderson & Moon Childhood Recollected, where only 27 woodcuts are noted. Little Goody Goosecap was originally known as The Orphan (1780), being the publisher John Marshall's attempt to emulate the huge success of John Newbery's Goody Two-Shoes. Around 1790 Marshall changed the name of The Orphan to The Entertaining History of Little Goody Goosecap. It is believed that Bassam was the first to use this name, disguising his piracy of the Marshall title.

His career coincided with a period of great archeological activity. His etchings of Rome followed Piranesi's example, and reported the latest excavations to an avidly interested European audience. In turn, as they were carried home by Northern Europeans on the Grand Tour, the etchings fuelled worldwide interest in classical architecture., Image Size : 405x530 (mm), 15.875x20.875 (Inches), Platemark Size : 440x545 (mm), 17.25x21.5 (Inches), Paper Size : 520x630 (mm), 20.5x24.75 (Inches), Black & White, Copper Engraving

        Il carnevale di Roma.

      [Rome] [1820] - 15 (of 20) etchings. Plate marks 20,5 x 47- 48 cm. The whole sheets 40,5 x 56 cm. Here we have fifteen etchings to the great work "Il Carnevale di Roma" executed by the swedish artist Count Hjalmar Mörner. This is probably the high point of Mörners production.The images can be mounted to form a long frieze, but it is also devided into sections. The first two etchings are free standing, showing the early stages of the Carnival at Piazza del Popolo, then we have the Carnival in full swing. After that follows the Carnival along Corson. Then we have the horse race and the candle party. The serie ends with one scene from the Aliberti theater (missing here) and one from an osteria. As mentioned the sequence is interupted since five plates are missing (number 7,8, 12, 17 and 19). The plates were printed by Francesco Burlié. Mörner lived for several years in Rome. Very large margins. Some minor creases, tears and dog s ears. Very nice condition.

        Original handwritten manuscript with navigation instructions from a French ship's Commander about navigating from Rio de Janeiro to Maldonaldo, Montevideo and Buenos Aires, and how to return to Rio again. With details on the mentioned harbours, where to get supplies, etcetera.

      manuscript 1820 - No place nor date. Judging from the paper, handwriting and references in the text, this document was written around the year 1820. The manuscript consists of 6 densely written pages in 4to size plus two blank pages. No author given. The contents of the letter strongly indicate that this document was written by a ship's captain or navy officer, which is further confirmed by the fact that this document comes from a collection of French navy material. The writer clearly speaks from his own experience sailing along the Brazilian coasts, and must have written this document as an instruction for a captain who sailed in South America for the first time. Page 1 has the title "Notes sure la navigation de Rio Janeiro a la Riviere de la Plata". It commences as follows: "On part de Rio Janeiro a la faveur de la Bris de terre qui ordinairement vous conduit en dehors des iles (.) de l' Ile Catherine, pratiquer pretendent qu'en le tenant sur les brasson, on doit en avoir de 60 a 70, jusques par la latitude de 30° a 31° (.)" Follow detailed instructions, where to expect which wind, places where to remain a bit further out of the Brazilian coast because of undersea rocks, etc. Halfway in page one is a reference to earlier experiences of a English ship in that same area: " Le vaisseau Anglais le Sanson toucha de 10 ou 12 lieus de terre par la latitude de 33°30, il trouva une mer plus profonde en gouvernant au sud". Near the end of page one, the passage along the Island Lobos (Ilha dos Lobos) is described. The author then advises to use a map from the Neptune de l'Amerique Meriodinale that he considers very reliable: "Une fois parvenu sur la carte de la riviere de la plata, qui fait partie de Neptune de l'Amerique Meriodinale depuis son emboucher jusqu'a buneois aires, publiee en 1800 et dressee d'apres les plans leves en 1789 et 1794 pour plusieurs officiers de la marine Espagnole. Une fois des-que l'on est parvenu sur cette carte, aucune instruction n'est necessaire pour se rendre a Montevideo (.)" Then follow some detailed instructions for sailing up the la Plata river, and warnings for reefs and shoals around the Ilha los Lobos. This continues on page 2. Halfway page two starts a paragraph about the harbor of Maldonado in Uruguay, with information on how to sail, supplies available, where to take water, and to make sure to catch the excellent fish that swim in the bay. Page 3/4 has paragraph with the header "Montevideo", describing the route from the little island Flores to Montevideo, some warnings for shoals and winds, and tips on where to take supplies and fresh water in Montevideo. Halfway page 4 starts a paragraph entitled "Route a Buenos-ayres". This gives instructions on how to cross the la Plata river to Buenos Aires. Page 5 starts with the header "Retour de Montevideo a Rio Janeyro". First there is a warning to leave on time and make sure to carefully navigate around the Islands Flores and Lobos in daylight, or if it is dark take considerable distance to avoid the dangerous rocks. The author then directly refers to his own previous experiences along the Brazilian coast: "J'ai eu occasion dans ma traverse de reconnaitre que toute la cote du cap St.e Marie a l'isle Ste. Catherine (.). On doit defier le courant qui portent au sud". Then follow further details on favorable winds, how to recognize certain capes and rocks, etc. . The section on navigating to Rio de Janeiro continues on page 6. Near the end the author instructs to take note on some errors in the work of General Albin Roussin, who had surveyed the Brazilian coast in 1819: "Si l' instruction de General Roussin sur la navigation de la cote de Bresil donne, comme certaines personnes l' ont accuse, des idees fautes sur les vents gris qui regnent, on doit au mons reconnaitre (.)". The manuscript ends with the following sentence: "quand on atterre sur Baya, ce sont de grandes taches blanches longu

        The history of England, from the invasion of Julius Caesar, to the revolution in 1688 / by David Hume to which is prefixed a short account of his life [volumes 2 - 8]

      London : Printed for Richardson & Co. 1820 - Physical description: 7v. ; 22cm. Volumes 2 - 8 only. Subjects: England -- History. Summary: The History of England (1754-61) is David Hume's great work on England's history which was written in installments while he was serving as librarian to the Faculty of Advocates in Edinburgh.

Thomas Cromwell (1792-1870) intended a 12 vol. work of his Irish travels to be issued in monthly parts covering the whole country. He also intended that there would be 600 engravings. However there was insufficent interest and after the first 2 vols were published, there was difficulty in issuing a 3rd vol. A reduced 3rd volume was eventually published with a much reduced compliment of plates than originally intended. No further vols were produced after the 3rd vol. The third vol. is extremely rare and the first two vols are scarce. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Odes pindaricas de Antonio Denys da Cruz e Silva; chamado entre os poetas da Arcadia Portugueza, Elpino Nonacriense.

      London, Na Officina de T.C. Hansard, 1820. - Small floral vignette on title page. Small woodcut headpiece and tailpieces. (3 ll.), 224 pp. 12°, contemporary crimson morocco (some rubbing, wear to corners, head of spine), flat spine richly gilt, two of the compartments with lyres, olive-green leather lettering piece, gilt letter, sides with gilt-rolled edge of cornucopia and palmette, edges of covers milled, marbled endleaves, all text-block edges gilt. Occasional faint foxing. Overall a fine copy. ---- Second separately published edition of a work first published Coimbra, 1801. The editors note that they had this edition of the odes printed in London "unicamente para terem o gosto de as ver impressas em melhor formato que o das Edições até agora publicadas, e ao mesmo tempo com mais asseio de typo e correcção de imprensa." The @Odes also were published as volumes V and VI of Cruz e Silva's @Poesias (Lisbon, 1807-17). Among the subjects of the odes are Vasco da Gama, André Furtado de Mendonça, João Fernandes Vieira, Dom João de Castro, Antonio Moniz Barretto, Duarte Pacheco Pereira, the Count Schaumbourg Lippe, and the Marquês de Pombal (to whom there are no less that four, including one on the reforms to Coimbra University). Cruz e Silva developed a formidable reputation as a lyric poet and satirist. His @O Hyssope was a source of inspiration for Francisco de Mello Franco's famous burlesque poem @Reino da estupidez. Cruz e Silva based his poem on the quarrel between the bishop of Elvas, D. Lourenço de Lancastre, and the dean, D. José Carlos de Lara, which he witnessed first-hand while resident in Elvas from 1764 to 1774. Bell recounts the tale that Cruz e Silva "was summoned to read his satire to the all-powerful [Marques de] Pombal in the presence of the infuriated bishop, and that the poem proved too much for the gravity of the minister, who appointed him a judge in Rio de Janeiro (1776)" (@Portuguese Literature pp. 273-4).Martins de Carvalho notes (p. 7) that many contemporaries considered @O Hyssope "muito superior" to Pope's @Rape of the Lock.Of humble origins (his father was a carpenter who abandoned the family to emigrate to Brazil, while his mother supported them working as a seamstress), Cruz e Silva (Lisbon 1731-Rio de Janeiro 1799) studied law at Coimbra. He co-founded the Arcadia Ulyssiponense in 1756 and, while serving as a military judge, developed a formidable reputation as a lyric poet and satirist. Most of Cruz e Silva's poems remained unpublished until after his death. In July 1790 Cruz e Silva was sent again to Brazil to assist in trying the leaders of the Republican conspiracy in Minas, in which Tomás António Gonzaga, Claudio Manuel da Costa, Manuel Inácio da Silva Alvarenga and other men of letters were involved, and in December 1792 he became chancellor of the Relação in Rio. Six years later he was named councillor of the Conselho Ultramarino, but did not live to return home.---- Innocêncio I, 124. Pinto de Matos (1970) p. 235. NUC: NNC, MH, DCU-IA.

(16 x 12 1/2"). xiv, [ii], 178 pp. Translated from the German by John Black. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH, First Issue. ONE OF 50 LARGE PAPER COPIES. Excellent contemporary red half morocco over marbled boards by Charles Hering (stamp-signed on verso of front free endpaper), newly rebacked and recornered to style by Courtland Benson, wide raised bands and panels attractively gilt in scrolling designs, gilt titling, all edges gilt. 24 HAND-COLORED PLATES OF THE RHINE (plus one folding map), taken from the drawings of Christian Georg Schütz and engraved by Sutherland, Havell, and Bartlett. Front pastedown with armorial bookplate of "R G V"; front free endpaper with evidence of bookplate removal. Abbey "Travel" I, 217; Tooley 234. Offsetting onto tissue guards (indicating that they have done their job), one tissue guard missing (but no offsetting onto text in this case), isolated trivial thumbing, foxing, or rust spots, but A FINE AND ESPECIALLY DESIRABLE COPY, the beautifully restored binding unworn, the text and plates with only the most minor imperfections, and the margins of this special copy remarkably broad. This is one of Ackermann's major color plate books and apparently the first in his "Picturesque Tours" series, others of which explore the Seine, the Ganges, and the Thames. The book describes a trip down the Rhine on that part of the river generally considered most romantic and charming. The account contains not only topographical descriptions, but considerable historical information and details of popular traditions. The tone is frankly advocative, the book being written "with a view chiefly to the information of travellers of cultivated minds who may be induced to visit this interesting portion of Germany." The main appeal of the book for us today, of course, resides in the book's spacious and richly colored plates. The irresistibly scenic views seem to justify the book's claim that the region depicted is "a portion of heaven fallen down to earth." Our plates are early impressions, and, as in other contexts, size matters here: the sheets in our volume are 407 mm. tall, appreciably larger than most of the copies seen in auction records, which measure, on average, approximately 330 mm. (Abbey's untrimmed copy measured 425 mm., and a Large Paper Copy sold at Sotheby's in 2007 had sheets 402 mm. tall.) As the limitation would indicate, copies on Large Paper are very uncommonly seen, and our copy is beautiful, with especially well-preserved text and plates and an exceedingly handsome replica spine.

With 89 Stunning exquisite HAND COLOURED plates within the period 1820 to 1821. Plates 2161 to 2250 inclusive with one plate substituted (1771 for 2190) and one missing (2248). The brightness, quality and vibrancy of the colours of the plates have to be seen to be believed. Index included. Rebound in tan cloth with black and gold leather labels. Cut without any significant loss to text and plates - 5.5" - 9" Donated to library and stored at the correct humidity and temperature and then released for sale in 1998. Front Pastedown contains library plate but no other marks on title page or plates. The volumes appear not to have been used which may explain their immaculate and stunning condition. The magazine was founded in 1787 by William Curtis and has continued publication to the present day. 'The reputation of the magazine has always resided in the accuracy of its portrayal of plants.' Curtis' principal artists were William Kilburn + James Sowerby and Sydenham T. Edwards. These skilled artists worked with him for 28 years and it was they who were responsible for most of the plates that appeared in the magazine. From October 1834 Walter Fitch became the main artist - a post that he would hold for 40 years. 'In the confident hands of a botanical artist like W.H. Fitch lithographs have an immediacy and spontaneity encountered usually only in original works of art.' This volume comes from an advertised complete run covering the first 45 years. On checking we find that there was in fact a gap in the run. Vol 46 for 1819 runs from plate 2023 to 2104 inclusive and is our book ref 4982. Complete correct with index. The binding of this volume (our book reference 4983) has vol 47showing on the spine for 1820 but is in fact a combination of 1820 and 1821. The plates start at 2161 through to 2188 for 1820. So 2105 to 2160 inclusive are missing. They then run form 2189 through to 2250. In fact the full run for 1821 is plates 2189 to 2272 inclusive. In that run the text for 2190 is faced by plate 1771. Also the publishers made an error with the printing of the plate numbers for 2247, 8 and 9. 2247 was printed as 2148 and contains a manuscript change to 2247 (this matches the text). 2247 is included in this book but excludes the text (I can provide a quality copy) Plate 2248 was incorrectly printed with 2249 on it and this is completely missing form this volume. Again I can copy the original plate and text from another volume). 2249 is correctly numbered by the publishers and is included in this book. So the book for sale covers part 1820 and 1821 with plates 2161 to 2250 inclusive subject to the omissions listed. The book contains the index for 1820. A copy of the index for 1821 can be provided if required. Our website contains 4 pictures of this book. Please note that the pink tinge to the paper is a white balance error in the camera as the paper is in fact off white. Stunning quality of plates. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
