        Il carnevale di Roma.

      1820 - Rome, F. Bourlié, 1820. Folio. (4) pp. & 20 engraved plates. Slightly worn green contemporary half morocco with gilt spine and sprinkled edges. Rubbed at top and bottom of spine. Corners bumped and with most of the skin rubbed away. Somewhat soiled and with occasional stains throughout. Hjalmar Mörner (1794-1837) travelled in Europe studying art in 1816-29 . He made a long stopover in Rome as house-guest and friend of the Swedish sculptor Johan Niclas Byström. There he made these fine pictures full of detail. Byström received the pencilled originals as a gift and he put them up on his walls at home like a frieze. The plates are meant as a sequence, starting at Piazza del Popolo and ends at the present Piazza Venezia. A few copies were handcoloured by the artist. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Hordern House, in conjunction with the State Library of New South Wales, announce the creation of a replica of the famous Chinese export-ware bowl from the Macquarie period. The Sydney Punchbowl was officially launched at the Library in October 2013 by the Governor of New South Wales, Her Excellency Professor Marie Bashir AC CVO. Only 25 examples will ever be available for purchase. Only 25 examples will ever be available for purchase. One of the most fascinating of all the unique treasures held in the State Library of New South Wales, the Sydney Punchbowl is a fine large porcelain bowl manufactured in China around 1820. The bowl is decorated with a panoramic scene of Sydney Cove around the outside and a group of Aboriginal figures on the inside, and finished with exquisite floral and gilded banding. Hand-made for Hordern House by Chinese craftsmen in the so-called "porcelain city" of Jingdezhen, the design, shape and hand-painted colours and gilding are as true and accurate a representation of the unique and beautiful original as is possible. The magnificent bowl stands 17 cm tall with a diameter of 45 cm. Accompanying each bowl will be a finely produced monograph in a special limited edition by Elizabeth Ellis OAM (former Mitchell Librarian and now an emeritus curator of the State Library of New South Wales). Contact Hordern House for further details and to view the bowl. You can download an information sheet and order form below, or contact us for a copy of the full colour brochure.

"Containing a complete History and Picturesque Description of a portion of Country so full of curious and interesting circumstances, as well as so resplendent for its landscape, grandeur, and beauty. The Work will be embellished with Twenty-four highly finished and coloured Engravings, from Drawings expressly made by an eminent Artist, resident near the Banks of the Rhine, and habitually familiar with every part of it The romantic, beautiful, and ever-varying Scenery of this River forms a distinguished feature of every modern foreign Tour; and no one can consider himself as an accomplished traveller who is not more or less acquainted with it Baron von Gerning, whose literary character is so well established in Germany, has undertaken to write the Historical Part; and Mr. Schutz, so well known as an artist, will furnish the Drawings" (Ackermann’s prospectus for the completed work, printed on the rear wrapper of Part I and others)."There are definitely later issues of the book and these can be recognized by having plate numbers at the top right-hand corner.

        Printed and Manuscript Document Signed, in French, 4to, Paris, April 28, 1820

      - The document is titled, "Les Roses, par P. J. Redoute," and is a receipt for subscriber payment for his renown book. In full, "I, the undersigned, acknowledge receipt from Mr. Pivote, subscriber to the book, "Roses," the sum of 30F against the price of the 16th delivery." He signs, "Redoute." This document is accompanied by a letter from the Queen's secretary dated Nov. 27, 1832, indicating to Redouté, that, "The Queen asked me to let you know that she spoke with interest of your business with. the Count de Montalivet and that she obtained from the promise that the payment you have been waiting for will be made as son as possible." Redouté,s association with French royalty began when Marie Antoinette became his patron and appointed him Painter to the Queen's Cabinet. Empress Josephine, Napoleon''s first wife, continued as his patron, until her death in 1814. Redouté remained close to the Bourbon Royal family. Maria Amalia Teresa; (1782 -1866) was Queen of the French from 1830-1848, referenced here. Redouté's 3 volume work, "Les Roses," was published between 1817-24 and each volume was received with great anticipation.

        Natives pursuing Kangaroos in the neighbourhood of Sydney , New South Wales

      [England]: circa, 1820. Single leaf from a child's scrapbook, 215 x 260 mm., the engravings and captions neatly cut-out and pasted down, views to both sides of the sheet; foxing and tears to the edges with marginal loss, but charming. Nonplussed kangaroos on Sydney harbour. Marvellous page from a child's scrap book with a naïve scene depicting "Natives pursuing Kangaroos in the neighbourhood of Sydney…". Perhaps as had always been intended, in this example the figures and captions have been carefully cut out and pasted on to a blank album page. We have still not been able to identify the name of the book or album from which the sheet was taken, but it is interesting to speculate as to the original source image. One plausible contender is the scene of "Natives of Botany Bay" from Phillip's Voyage (1789), but perhaps the most likely is the "Hunting the Kangaroo" plate published in Foreign Field Sports (1813). The warrior at far left certainly bears some resemblance to the latter, although it has to be said that the second warrior and the background are both very different, as are the kangaroos, which are here represented as amiable and doe-eyed, one with a pair of joeys peeking from her pouch. On the verso is a bloodthirsty scene from the same series, "A Lion attacking a herd of Zebras". This is a rare image. The State Library of New South Wales lists an uncoloured sheet, while the Nan Kivell collection has a coloured version (NK 1350); the latter was exhibited in the World Upside Down in 2000, where the tentative date of circa 1820 was suggested. Our example has very similar but not identical colouring to the Nan Kivell copy.

        THE CITY OF NEW YORK IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK, NORTH AMERICA.

      Springland, near Bristol, Pa.: Published by William Birch [and] William H. Morgan, 100 Arch Street, [Philadelphia], "1st January 1803" [but ca. 1820]. - Copper engraving, handcolored. Sheet size: 21 7/8 x 28 5/8 inches. Expertly repaired tears and restoration to blank margin, else very good. A fine example of the third state of "the Birch View with the Picnic Party." "This rendering of New York from across the East River is a companion to William Birch's view of Philadelphia.and was issued by the artist to arouse interest in a projected series of views of New York, which never appeared. Birch explains in his unpublished autobiography.that he visited New York frequently in his endeavor to prepare an iconography of the city.'I took many turns to New York where I met with friendly reception and politeness. I had nearly completed a set of drawings of that city which I meant to publish as a companion Volume to the Philadelphia; but found profits of the undertaking was not equal to the expense of travelling and the support of my family.'" "The Drawing of New-York," wrote Birch in the promotional literature for the view, "is from the opposite shore of the Sound, as it appears from a great eminence, forming a chaste and grand subject, very similar to the choice of subject made use of by the celebrated Salvator Rosa; the Bay is seen, and the opposite bank of the North River over the busy town at sunset, contrasting in the foreground with the quiet grazing of a horse under the wreck of an ancient tree, upon a sequestered lawn on Long-Island." The description was included in a prospectus for the first edition of Birch's Philadelphia views. "In the second state of the engraving, a picnic party was substituted for the white horse, and other changes were made.[The present example is from the third state], similar to the second, but with the imprint of William H. Morgan.in this form the plate was reissued about 1820" - Deák. The view shows a family enjoying a picnic on Brooklyn Heights at a place that gives a nice panoramic view of Manhattan from the southeast and which shows all the major buildings of the City in 1802, the date depicted, beginning with the south end of the Battery on the left. Visible through the masts of the ship on the river is the steeple of Trinity Church (at the west end of Wall Street). Farther to the right are St. Paul's, St. George's, the Dutch Reformed Church, and numerous other prominent features. DEÁK, PICTURING AMERICA 245. PYNE COLLECTION (1912) 29. STAUFFER 2884.

Smooth spines ruled and lettered in gilt. A remarkably fine and totally unsophisticated copy. Individually chemised and housed together in a quarter dark green morocco book-back slipcase.ìëIvanhoe,í which appeared at the end of 1819, marked a new departure. Scott was now drawing upon his reading instead of his personal experience, and the book has not the old merit of serious portraiture of real life. But its splendid audacity, its vivid presentation of medi??val life, and the dramatic vigour of the narrative, may atone for palpable anachronisms and melodramatic impossibilities. The story at once achieved the popularity which it has always enjoyed, and was more successful in England than any of the so-called ëScottish novels.í It was Scottís culminating success in a bookselling sense, and marked the highest point both of his literary and his social prosperityî (D.N.B.).Block, p. 209.

Rollin, was a French historian and educator. Rollin's literary work dates chiefly from the later years of his life, when he had been forbidden to teach. His once famous Ancient History (Paris, 1730-38), and the less generally read Roman History, which followed it, were avowed compilations, uncritical and somewhat inaccurate. But they instructed and interested, generation after generation. A more original and really important work was his Traité des études (Paris, 1726-31). It contains a summary of what was even then a reformed and innovative system of education, including a more frequent and extensive use of the vulgar tongue, and discarded the medieval traditions that had lingered in France.

        Principles of Political Economy Considered with a View to Their Practical Application.

      London John Murray 1820 - "If Only Malthus, Instead of Ricardo, Had Been the Parent Stem From Which Nineteenth-Century Economics Proceeded, What a Much Wiser and Richer Place the World Would be Today" MALTHUS, T[homas] R[obert]. Principles of Political Economy. Considered with a View to Their Practical Application. London: John Murray, 1820. First edition. Octavo. vi, [1]2-601[602]. Original boards, uncut. With original paper label on spine. Hinges expertly and almost invisibly repaired. Old bookplate from "The Library of Victoria" with no other library markings. A very clean copy, internally fine. Very scarce in original boards. Housed in a custom quarter black morocco clamshell, gilt-stamped. First edition of Malthus' principal contribution to economic theory. Schumpeter describes Malthus' work in relation to that of his predecessors, Adam Smith and Ricardo, as follows: "Ricardo's work.started with the Wealth of Nations and recoined the latter's theoretical contents by a method that centered in the concept of value. Exactly the same thing is evidently true of the work of Malthus.except for his theory of saving and investment, which on the face of it seems to be Malthus's own, all the elements that enter into the analytic apparatus of that work, and even its terminological arrangements, point to the First book of the Wealth of Nations. Only, whereas Ricardo recoined the doctrine of Wealth by means of the labor-quantity theory of value, Malthus recoined it by the means of the theory of value that A. Smith actually used, namely, the theory of supply and demand.[whereas] Ricardo's analytic apparatus is geared to the problem of distribution.Malthus. geared his apparatus to the analysis of the whole economic process.Therefore, Malthus should.stand in the history of analysis not only as the author of a valid alternative to Ricardo's theory but as the sponsor (or rather as one of the sponsors) of the victorious one." "Although Malthus is best known for the views on population contained in his Essay on Population.there can be no doubt that his importance for economists today rests mainly on his Principles of Political Economy (1820). It was because of the latter work that J. M. Keynes reinstated Malthus as a major figure in modern economic thought". (New Palgrave). Cress C577.

Also particulars of the most inportant Courts-Martial, votes of Parliament, Lists of Flag Officers in Commission and of promotions for each year.

Many of the plates record events based on the drawings of officers participating in the battles depicted.

The plate page headers are printed in blue, confirming that they were contemporarily coloured at issue, and distinguishing them from later coloured copies (Tooley).

        Van Diemen's Land. Geographical and descriptive delineations of the Island of Van Diemen's Land

      London: J.M. Richardson, 1820. Octavo, fine in Aquarius binding of full calf, gilt spine. Captain of HMS Kangaroo jumps Surveyor Evans. The first separately published description of Van Diemen's Land and an important early colonial work. This rare account by Lieutenant Jeffreys is also one of the first of many Australian books addressed to an emigrant audience written with a view to enticing settlers away from North America to the Australian colonies. Charles Jeffreys (1782-1826) arrived in Port Jackson as master of HMS Kangaroo with his wife in January 1814. Macquarie gave him the task of transporting convicts to Tasmania, but Jeffreys was always something of a chancer, and it was soon apparent that he was more interesting in liquor smuggling, assisting the escape of convicts, and kidnapping than following official instructions. Macquarie virtually expelled him from the colony in April 1817, ordering Jeffreys to sail for England with no Australian landfalls whatsoever. Yet later that month Jeffreys landed sly grog in Hobart, again assisted escaped convicts and assaulted a fellow officer. He sailed for England and escaped prosecution on a legal technicality (as was often the case with disreputable colonials officers of his type). One of the passengers on board the Kangaroo was Surveyor General George William Evans, from whom the bulk of the text was quite literally stolen by Jeffreys to produce this book. Evans eventually retrieved his manuscript from Jeffreys and published his legitimate account in 1822. Despite this, Jeffrey's account remains the first separately published work concerning Van Diemen's Land, being 'a notable book and quite attractive despite its sordid history. It is essential to any collection of Tasmaniana and would make a valuable acquisition for any collection' (Australian Rare Books).
