        Stage Waggon

      London: J. Watson, 1820. Aquatint, printed in colours and finished by hand, by James Baily (expert repair to lower margin affecting publication line). A fine view of a wicker-work stage wagon on an English side road.The stage wagon, a much slower pre-cursor of the stage coach, made only from ten to fifteen miles in a long summer's day; that is, supposing them not to have broken down by pitching over the boulders laid along the road, or stuck fast in a quagmire, when they had to wait for the arrival of the next team of horses to help to drag them out. The wagon, however, continued to be adopted as a popular mode of travelling until late in the eighteenth century, and lingered on into the nineteenth century on the less frequented routes.Agasse "studied as a boy in his native Geneva and later under David and Vernet in Paris... In 1800 he settled in England... He painted a number of very fine equestrian and greyhound portraits for Lord Rivers... He quickly found other patrons, many of them friends of Lord Rivers, and his ability to portray horses sympathetically and with anatomical accuracy was widely recognised." (Charles Lane British Racing Prints p.72).Lane Sporting Aquatints and their engravers I, p. 89; Siltzer p.41.

        La Gazza Ladra Melodramma in due Atti. Die diebische Elster Oper in zwei Aufzügen... Klavierauszug... Pr. 6 Rthlr. [Piano-vocal score].

      Leipzig: Breitkopf und Härtel [PN 3158], [1820]. Oblong folio. Modern half dark brown calf with marbled boards, rules and titling to spine gilt. 1f. (title), [1] (cast list and table of contents), 2-232 pp. Lithographed. Text in Italian and German. With "Presso Gio. Ricordi Negoziante di Musica d'ogni genere... " overpaste to title. Some browning, foxing, soiling, small tears, and minor dampstaining to margins of first and last leaves; trimmed at upper margin. Second edition of the first version. Rognoni, p. 446, no. 21. Gossett p. 357. La gazza ladra, to a libretto by Giovanni Gherardini after La pie voleuse by J.M.T. Badouin d'Aubigny and Louis-Charles Caigniez, was first performed in Milan at the Teatro alla Scala on May 31, 1817. "Musically, La gazza ladra is the finest of Rossini's several essays in the semiseria that stretch from L'equivoco stravagante (1811) to Matilde di Shabran (1821). In this instance, the work can be seen to derive in part from the French drama larmoyant, in part from the so-called 'rescue' opera. The opera deals with a wide range of social groupings, and conforms to the tradition of the happy ending, the heroine saved from execution at the eleventh hour, even though in the original French play the heroine dies on the gallows."

        L'Italiana in Algeri Opera comica in due Atti. Pr. [Florins] 13 [Kreutzer] 30. [Piano-vocal score]

      B. Schott figli [PN 1277], Magonza 1820 - Oblong folio. Half contemporary mid-brown calf with marbled boards, decorative dark red morocco title label gilt to upper, spine in decorative compartments gilt. 1f. (title with fine large vignette of a scene from the opera engraved by Contgen), 1-[2] (cast list and table of contents), 222 pp. Engraved. Text in Italian and German.Contemporary signature in black ink to front free endpaper.Binding somewhat worn and bumped; upper joint partially split. Some minor wear, soiling, browning, and foxing; small portion of corner of pp. 55-56 lacking, not affecting music. An attractive copy overall. First Edition. With two spurious numbers. Gossett: "The Operas of Rossini," pp. 245 and 259-262. Rognoni p. 444, no. 11. OCLC no. 16970555.L'italiana in Algeri, to a libretto substantially derived from Angelo Anelli's libretto for Luigi Mosca's L'italiana in Algeri, was first performed in Venice at the Teatro S Benedetto on May 22, 1813."The opera is Rossini's first buffo masterpiece in the fully fledged two-act form. It quickly won widespread popular acclaim in Italy and it was the first Rossini opera to be produced in Germany (1816, Munich) and France (1817, Paris). L'italiana in Algeri is a work of great richness and sophistication. Formally it is an innovative piece, drawing Rossini's experience from his single-act farse into a larger context. It is also, despite being written at speed, notably free from any kind of self-borrowing. The numbers that were farmed out to another composer, gracious and decorous in an 18th-century style, are by contrast a reminder of how fiercely the flame of Rossini's own comic invention burns in this remarkable opera, which transcends Mosca's earlier effort as surely as Rossini's Il barbiere di Siviglia was shortly to transcend Paisiello's."

Hodgskin (1787-1869), English economist, political theorist, and journalist, after about twelve years period in the British navy was in 1812 put on the retired list and, reduced to half-pay. "In his first published work, An Essay on Naval Discipline (1813), he contrasted the arbitrary brutality of naval life with the good government with which Britain was reputedly blessed. Publication of the Essay brought Hodgskin to the attention of the London radicals, notably Francis Place, who was to offer Hodgskin intellectual companionship and patronage. In July 1815 Hodgskin embarked on a walking tour which took him first to Paris and later to Germany, where he made a detailed study of the political and economic institutions of Hanover. Although his investigations were shaped by a questionnaire devised by Jeremy Bentham, his suggestion, in Travels in the North of Germany (2 vols., 1820), that 'many evils are in Germany, occasioned by governing too much' was far from Benthamite. Hodgskin expounded a minimalist conception of the state, insisting that government tended to shackle the energies and liberties of individuals. The guarantor of good government was the influence of public opinion. He concluded that if Britain was better governed than the states of Germany this was principally because of the greater freedom of expression in Britain and because the political education of the working classes had progressed further in Britain than in Germany" [O.D.N.B.] His views became increasing radical and when in 1822 "Place secured him a position as a correspondent for the Morning Chronicle .. respectable journalism gave [him] a regular income, but no outlet for his real opinions. In 1823 he was instrumental in establishing the Mechanics' Magazine and the mechanics' institute, where in 1825 he delivered a course of lectures later published as Popular Political Economy (1827). His reputation as an economist rests on these lectures, the trenchant Labour Defended Against the Claims of Capital (1825), and The Natural and Artificial Right of Property Contrasted (1832). He has frequently been described as a 'Ricardian socialist', but the description is more ironic than accurate. Certainly Hodgskin used elements from Ricardian economics, but only as tools with which to undermine the Ricardian edifice. At the same time he pressed the labour theory of value to far more radical ends than David Ricardo, seeing skilled labour as both the measure and producer of all value. Fixed capital was no more than accumulated labour. Hodgskin saw a shameless deception at the centre of Ricardian economics and British capitalism: both pretended that capital was productive and the essential spring to greater prosperity, but, Hodgskin argued, capitalists were always parasitic, holding wages close to subsistence levels and diverting the fruits of labour's productivity to unproductive and anti-social consumption. Although Karl Marx's formulation of the theory of surplus value was more sophisticated, his debt to Hodgskin is unmistakable" [O.D.N.B.]

L'italiana in Algeri, to a libretto substantially derived from Angelo Anelli's libretto for Luigi Mosca's L'italiana in Algeri, was first performed in Venice at the Teatro S Benedetto on May 22, 1813. "The opera is Rossini's first buffo masterpiece in the fully fledged two-act form. It quickly won widespread popular acclaim in Italy and it was the first Rossini opera to be produced in Germany (1816, Munich) and France (1817, Paris)... L'italiana in Algeri is a work of great richness and sophistication. Formally it is an innovative piece, drawing Rossini's experience from his single-act farse into a larger context. It is also, despite being written at speed, notably free from any kind of self-borrowing. The numbers that were farmed out to another composer, gracious and decorous in an 18th-century style, are by contrast a reminder of how fiercely the flame of Rossini's own comic invention burns in this remarkable opera, which transcends Mosca's earlier effort as surely as Rossini's Il barbiere di Siviglia was shortly to transcend Paisiello's." Richard Osborne in Grove Music Online.. Oblong folio. Half contemporary mid-brown calf with marbled boards, decorative dark red morocco title label gilt to upper, spine in decorative compartments gilt. 1f. (title with fine large vignette of a scene from the opera engraved by Contgen), 1-[2] (cast list and table of contents), 222 pp. Engraved. Text in Italian and German. Contemporary signature in black ink to front free endpaper. Binding somewhat worn and bumped; upper joint partially split. Some minor wear, soiling, browning, and foxing; small portion of corner of pp. 55-56 lacking, not affecting music. An attractive copy overall.

Il fut fondé par les publicistes du parti libéral pour remplacer le Mercure de France, dépouillé de son privilège. Il paraissait par livraisons hebdomadaires et traitait plus de politique que de littérature, et professait, dans l’une et dans l’autre, les mêmes principes d’indépendance. Toutes les idées et tous les intérêts en opposition avec le gouvernement de la Restauration se manifestaient dans cet organe, qui était particulièrement celui de l’opinion constitutionnelle. Son succès rapide fut encore activé par la violence des attaques dirigées contre lui par tous les représentants de l’opposition légitimiste en France et à l’étranger. La Minerve avait pour principaux rédacteurs Benjamin Constant, Jay, Etienne, Jouy, Tissot, Lacretelle, etc. La pièce capitale, [en dehors des articles de Benjamin Constant], était les Lettres d’Etienne, qui se plaisait à chercher les nouvelles de Paris dans les journaux de l’étranger et à transcrire de l’anglais des choses qu’on n’aurait pas osé insérer d’abord dans une gazette française. La vivacité avec laquelle la Minerve soutint la lutte contre le pouvoir l’a fait appeler "la satire Ménippée de la Restauration". Ce fut pour neutraliser son influence que fut créé le Conservateur. En butte à de puissantes haines, dénoncée comme un danger public dans une foule de factums et de pamphlets, la Minerve cessa de paraître en 1820 pour protester contre le rétablissement de la censure." (Vapereau, Dict. des littératures p. 1402).La politique "reste surtout, du moins jusqu’à son élection comme député de la Sarthe le 26 mars 1819, l’œuvre de Constant qui y publie en tout 99 articles. Y figurent certains de ses meilleurs textes, notamment les "Lettres sur les Cent-Jours", publiées pour la première fois (cf. numéro 56), et son analyse des "Considérations" de Madame de Staël (cf. numéro suivant). On lira également ses articles sur l’affaire Wilfrid Regnault, les élections, la grande propriété, les débats parlementaires, l’inviolabilité de la Charte et les Constitutions (à propos de l’ouvrage de Lanjuinais, cf. numéro 27), la traite des Noirs, l’Angleterre, les lois de Serre sur la presse de 1819 et l’invalidation de Grégoire." (Yvert).2) Trois derniers volumes (sur 5 parus) du Mercure de France. Ces trois volumes couvrent la période du 5 juillet 1817 à janvier 1818. A la fin du dernier volume, on a relié une partie des numéros du tome II (31 mai 1817 à juin 1817). Le volume V est rarissime. Le premier volume parut en janvier 1817.Yvert, Politique libérale, bibliographie sélective n° 18."Premier grand périodique libéral depuis les Cent-Jours." (Yvert). Il avait pour principal rédacteur Benjamin Constant.A la suite du tome 9 de la Minerve, on a relié le 11e volume des Lettres normandes, envoyé aux abonnés de la Minerve française pour compléter leur abonnement (cf. Hatin p. 336). Les quelques brochures publiées par les rédacteurs de la Minerve après le rétablissement de la censure manquent comme dans la quasi-totalité des exemplaires.

Vide U. S. National Library of Medicine [in] The History of Lupus Skin Disease: «At the beginning of the 19th century, Robert Wilan (1757?1812) of London and his student William Bateman (1778?1821) published his Manual of Skin Diseases, which provided an orderly classification of skin diseases based on appearance. The term lupus was reserved for diseases with destructive or ulcerative characteristics that appeared on the face This system thus included what would later be called lupus vulgaris and lupus erythematosus. Distinguishing these entities awaited Pierre Cazenave (1795?1877) and Henri Schedel (1804?1856), in Paris at the Saint Louis Hospital for skin diseases, who reported their own work as well as that of Laurent Biett (1781?1840), their mentor and a student of Bateman. In several articles and especially in the textbook Abrégé Pratique Des Maladies De La Peau, Cazenave and Schedel divided lupus into three types based on the type of visible destruction. In 1833, Cazenave reported Biett?s work in what is now regarded as the first description of what would become known as lupus erythematosus. Location/localizacao: M-9-B-15

        To the radical reformers, male and female, of England, Ireland, and Scotland.

      Ilchester Gaol printed by W. Molineux up to 23.12. and thereafter by T. Dolby June 15th 1820 - February 11th 1822 - 28 separate issues, each with caption title, with a total of approximately 614pp., variable foxing, bound in one volume in contemporary half calf gilt over marbled boards, neatly rebacked and labelled. In good state of preservation. A remarkably good (but nonetheless incomplete) collection of these self-obsessed political letters by the radical politician Henry Hunt (1773-1835), written from his cell in Ilchester Gaol or 'Ilchester Bastille', as he usually described it. The series of letters seem to have continued until as late as July 8th, 1823, and most were added to Hunt's Memoirs>. Each is individually rare: complete collections of all 47 issues are exceptionally rare. 'The Peterloo massacre inflamed radical spirits, aroused middle-class public opinion, and unnerved the government. The radicals, however, failed to advance beyond this vantage ground. Hunt was soon embroiled in internecine controversy with the Watsonites, as he refused to sanction plans for a full-scale confrontation through simultaneous mass meetings. Hunt, indeed, decided to forgo the platform altogether, resting the radical case on the unsullied moral victory of Peterloo itself. In the courts, however, the authorities were exonerated without question, Hunt's unremitting efforts to bring the ‘Manchester murderers’ to justice notwithstanding. At his own trial in York in March 1820, Hunt was fined and sentenced to two and a half years' imprisonment. Immured in ‘Ilchester Bastille’, Orator Hunt turned pamphleteer, journalist, and autobiographer, producing Memoirs of Henry Hunt, Esq., Written by himself in his Majesty's Jail at Ilchester> (3 vols., 1820–22) and addresses To the Radical Reformers, Male and Female of England, Ireland and Scotland >(2 vols., 1820–22). These writings, the primary source for his reputation for vanity, were certainly characterized by an interminable concentration on self. At a time of revision in radical ranks, Hunt sought to legitimize his leadership as the best guarantee of the integrity of popular radicalism, otherwise under threat from ideological extremism or moderate opportunism. Furthermore, he needed publicity for his ‘gaol politics’. What started as a campaign to secure his political status soon widened into a major exposure of the evils of the prison system which led to the conviction of the governor and the demolition of the gaol.' [John Belchem in ODNB]. Nearly all these letters are dated with reference to the Peterloo Massacre on August 16th, 1819. Thus Hunt's letter of 12th Jan. 1822 is headed 'Ilchester Bastille, 19th day, 4th month, 3d year of the Manchester Massacre, without retribution or inquiry. January 12, 1822'.

        Autograph Letter Signed to Theophilus Pierson mentioning Adultery

      Good. One page letter. Approximately 8" x 7.75". Old folds with tears, a few chips affecting only one letter, good, but stable, clear and readable. Mooney writes from Rahway, New Jersey on 6 April 1820 about a potential land deal caused by strange circumstances (original spelling retained):"We got home veriwell and Aby has gone to the Scotch Planes to try her luck at hir trade. The same nite I got home from York there broak out a Mutiny at John Rodens. Roden had been to York, came home and found his man Pierson and his wife both in Pierson's bed. He had provided a good club for them but Pierson made his escape. Roden says that he means to sell..."The rest of the letter deals with details about possibly buying Roden's property, Roden was hesitant to hold a mortgage and Mooney asks Pierson to come out and fix it with Roden. It is unclear whether the manservant Pierson was related to the Pierson who is the recipient of the letter, forced to guess we'd say not and that it was a coincidence. The recipient, Theofilius Pierson (1792-1853), was a prosperous sawyer and landowner. We could find little about Mooney (1763-1834) beyond his dates. Both were from Westfield, a few miles away from Rahway.At any event a livelier than usual letter that belies the staid reputations of our predecessors.
