        A PICTURE OF MARGATE, AND ITS VICINITY. By W.C. Oulton, Esq. Author of the Traveller's Guide, Etc., Etc. Illustrated with a Map and Twenty Views, Engraved by J.J.Shury, from Drawings by Captain G. Varlo, R.M.

      Baldwin, Cradock and Joy, Paternoster Row. 1820 - First Edition, half title + engraved map + engraved title-page + letterpress title-page + preface [ii] + 5-124 pp. + [1 pp. list of plates] , illustrated with 19 engraved views (the engraved title-page has a plate of St Johns Church which forms the 20th plate). In this copy the unnumbered list of plates is bound at the end, instead of after the letterpress title-page, as in some copies, which accounts for the pagination of the prelims (vi), when only [iv] are present. This example is complete in every way. Bound in contemporary half calf, gilt, over marbled boards. Occasional foxing marks as usual, and a slight damp stain occasionally affecting the lower margin of the plates, though the images are unaffected. An attractive copy of this, now very scarce, item. Fine early 19th century view book and descriptive guide of the town and harbour of Margate, here described in accurate detail, giving probably the best record of the town at this time. Steam boats with hordes of visitors are depicted, and the thoroughfares and bathing establishments of the town, as well as more prosaic edifices such Cobb's Brewery and The Prevention Post, windmills, etc., etc. A charming guide which depicts the town in words and fine engraved views.

        Chansons Joyeuses et de Table par Piron, Collé, Gallet, Panard, etc. etc

      Paris. Chez les Marchands de Nouveautés [no date], [c. 1820.]. 64mo, 68 x 52 mms., pp, [ii], 254, with woodcut frontispiece and woodcut vignette of three of the authors named on the title-page, original wrappers, uncut, one or two leaves unopened, paper label on spine; outer margins very slightly rubbed, and many corners turned, but a good copy. The amusing frontispiece, with the gentleman's top hat strategically placed (anticipating the jokey cartoons of Donald McGill) gives a fairish indication of the contents, with many erotic songs, as well as others extolling Bacchus. The other authors include Charles-Francois Panard (1689 - 1765), Charles Collé (1709 - 1783), M. Gallet (1698 - 1757). The only copy that I have located is in the Bibliotheque Nationale in Paris.

        TRAVELS IN THE INTERIOR OF AFRICA, to the sources of the Senegal and Gambia, Performed By Command of the French Government, in the Year 1818...edited by T.E. Bowdich, Esq., conductor of the mission to Ashantee

      London: Printed for Henry Colburn and Co., 1820. First edition in English. With a large folding map, stipple-engraved frontispiece and six uncoloured aquatint plates. 4to, contemporary three-quarterhalf calf over marbled boards, lettered in gilt on the spine. xii, 380 pp.; includes itinerary and vocabulary lists. A fine copy, very bright and crisp and quite clean but for some typical spotting here and there, the antique spine sometime expertly restored, inner front hinge with paper support. “It was at first my intention, when I set out for the interior of Western Africa, to explore anew the countries which Mungo Park had visited; but being soon convinced of the impossibility of making discoveries, or even of traveling at all in that quarter, I resolved to strike out a new track; and after penetrating into the continent, I followed a line parallel to the meridian. The regions which I had to traverse in pursuing this direction, were almost unknown, and afforded scope for observations equally numerous and interesting. Thus the result answered my expectations, and I attained, in a great measure, the object which I had in view. Well-informed persons to whom I communicated the notes made in my journal, encouraged me to arrange them and to publish a narrative of the events, which during my enterprize had involved me in so many dangers. From the following sheets the reader will perceive that the manner in which I was obliged to travel, prevented me from prosecuting my researches so far as I could have wished.” Abbey, Travel 273. This volume is filled with the author’s descriptions of history, geography, animals, religion, culture and his experiences in tribal kingdoms. Mollien got to know the peoples of various tribes in equatorial Africa, as well as their royalty.

        Ruth and Boaz

      circa 1820. Watercolor heightened with india ink, repaired tear lower left, small spots of gum arabic lower center, otherwise in good condition, the colors very fresh. 18½ x 25½ inches. This fine Biblical scene is from the Book of Ruth, chapter 2, in which Boaz, owner of the fields being worked, tells Ruth that she is welcome to glean ther (gather what has been left behind) and that she will be safe. Ruth kneels to the ground: "Then she fell on her face, and bowed herself to the ground, and said unto him, 'Why have I found grace in they eyes that thou shouldst take knowledge of me, seeing I am a stranger?" verse 3. Boaz answers, in effect, that it is because he knows she is an orphan and a stranger that he welcomes her.

        Original 19th Century Watercolor of Chinese Tradesman: A Chinese Canister Maker

      British Isles: c. 1820. Fine condition A scarce and charming original early nineteenth century watercolor painting on wove paper. (8.25 x 7.75 inches, 209 x 196 mm.) The painting has been tipped onto ecru wove album paper of the period, as was the custom, yet the watercolors remain vibrant and rich. Although the origin of this lovely painting is unknown, a refined and experienced hand clearly created this detailed and elegant composition. Seated on a small wooden block, a Chinese Canister Maker solders circular sheets of tin with melted lead creating the vessels for tea and other dry goods. On the foreground two iron skillets holding lead are melting over open makeshift flames. Assorted tools of the forger's trade surround the craftsman. The details are fine; both the tones and shading display the painter's astute understanding of composition and perspective. The artist no doubt was an armchair or "parlor" watercolorist, likely an aristocratic gentlewoman or man who sought inspiration from the vast array of published volumes, complete with engraved plates, of the trades, and costumes of the then exotic regions of the globe. The trades and costumes of China were well documented by the turn of the nineteenth century, thus the inspiration seems apparent. & &

        Tales of the Genii

      London - J. Booker et al, 1820 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Tales of the Genii is a collection of stories by James Kenneth Ridley based on those of the Arabian Nights. With illustrated half titles and engraved plates drawn by R. Westall . First published in two volumes in 1764, was issued under the pen name 'Sir Charles Morell', supposedly British Ambassador at Bombay. In two volumes complete. Ridley's Tales were allegedly composed by an imam named Horam and translated from a Persian manuscript; in actuality, they were products of Ridley's imagination. The Tales belong to a genre of imitation Orientalia popular in the 18th century; in its own time and after, Ridley's book was compared to Samuel Johnson's Rasselas. James Kenneth Ridley (1736 - 1765) was an English author. He wrote two novels, The History of James Lovegrove, Esquire and The Schemer, or the Universal Satirist, by that Great Philosopher Helter van Scelter; but he is mainly remembered for his Tales of the Genii. Condition: In contemporarylong-grain morocco. Externally, generally smart but with slightwear to extremities and the odd mark and slight ink stain to boards. Front hinges strained, previous reinforcement to rear hinges. Internally, firmly bound but with front blanks missing due to hinges. Bright but with occasional slight foxing, mostly to plates and with the odd handling mark. Evidence of previous bookplates to front pastedowns. Overall: VERY GOOD.

Complete with 54 hand tinted plates, some with additional letterpress description. Light spotting, offsetting of frontispieces on to title pages. Volume three slightly affected by damp. Later half calf marbled boards. Challinor, 20, " During the course of its (Organic Remains) publication a transformation had been taking place in the human view of the geological scene. This was due chiefly to the dissemination, orally and by correspondence, of the discoveries of William Smith, but also to independent researches, particularly those by John Farley. Parkinson's three volumes reflect this progress . the work is remarkable for Parkinson's grasp of the previous and contemporary literature of geology and palaeontology and his historical discussion of it. Many well known fossil species are excellently described for the first time, accompanied with beautiful tinted engraved plates of the species." Challinor Primary Literature, 55. Ward & Carozzi, 1735

        A VIEW OF THE POLICY OF PERMITTING SLAVES IN THE STATES WEST OF THE MISSISSIPPI: BEING A LETTER TO A MEMBER OF CONGRESS

      Baltimore: Printed by Joseph Robinson, 1820.. 47pp. Gathered signatures, string-tied, as issued. Uniform, light tanning. Vertical crease. Very good. Untrimmed. A scarce pamphlet arguing that the federal government has no right to interfere in the extension or prohibition of slavery into newly-admitted states of the Union. Rather, Learned maintains that the issue should be decided by the states themselves. Learned's tract, written at the height of the controversy over the admission of Missouri into the Union, which culminated in the Missouri Compromise, is in response to Daniel Raymond's THE MISSOURI QUESTION, published in 1819. Learned allows that slavery is a "moral evil," but argues that "the condition of the slave is better in a free Government, for his protection by the laws is more sure." He goes on to contend that spreading slavery into the new states is beneficial to the slaves, lessening the evil of slavery in the old states, and improving their condition in the new states. A scarce argument for states' rights, this is the first copy we have ever owned. HOWES L166a. SABIN 39538. AMERICAN IMPRINTS 1919. WORK, p.331. DUMOND, p.73.

Freedom of the press was granted under the Constitution of 1812. Repudiated by Ferdinand VII in 1814, but eventually revived after the revolt of Rafael del Riego y Nunez in 1820. Richard H.

        View of the Country from Urshalun Teeba

      London: Rodwell & Martin, 1 March 1820. Hand-coloured aquatint by Robert Havell & Son, after Fraser. 18 1/8 x 23 1/4inches. 21 x 30 inches. A fine example of a view taken during the first recorded journey by Europeans through the Himalayas. On 18 June 1815 Fraser and his brother William reached Urshalun, near to where the Nepalese General Kirti Rana had surrendered. Three days later James celebrated his 32nd birthday by climbing the peak, Tiba, behind the village. In 1815, following the end of the war with Nepal, Fraser and his brother William, a political agent, spent two months on a tour of the Himalayas. Their journey took the brothers along the river valleys of the Himalayas, with occasional sorties to higher latitudes and as far as the sources of both the Jumna and Ganges rivers. This view is from the spectacular Views in the Himala Mountains which contains twenty of Havell's masterly plates worked up from sketches made on the spot by Fraser. In style the plates are similar to, and very much a match for Henry Salt's and the Daniell brothers' large scale views published 10 and 20 years earlier. This was a deliberate strategy by the publishers who drew attention to the similarities in their advertisements which describe the work as being `In Elephant Folio, uniform with Daniell's Oriental Scenery, and Salt's Views in Abyssinia..'

      Philadelphia: Published by the Sunday and Adult School Union, 1820. - This macabre book was very popular, going into several editions in a short period of time. The title was revised to include, in later editions, "thirteen girls," and "twenty three" and "twenty-five" children. The publishing history is uncertain, as some of the more compendious editions have dates earlier than 1820. The language of the girls seems precocious, with the seven-year-old Miss Lewis remarking, "My Jesus is coming; the chariot is comingÉGood bye! I don't like to say so to my mother, she will be unhappy. Bury me with my sister and motherÉ" The author, a "minister of the Gospel," seems to revel in the early deaths of these young girls. Small twelvemo. 69 pp. Woodcut frontispiece. Original blue printed boards. Spine worn, early ownership inscription on title-page: "Sunday school of St. James's Church/Reward of merit Harriet Hentzel." A very good copy of a fragile book. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An Inquiry into Certain Errors relative to Insanity; and their Consequences; Physical, Moral, and Civil

      One folding printed table. ix, [1], 320 pp. 8vo, orig. grey boards (upper joint with a bit of wear), printed paper label on spine (a little flaked), uncut. London: T. & G. Underwood, 1820. First edition. Burrows (1777-1846), following many years as a successful general practitioner in London, turned his attention in 1816 to the treatment of insanity. He kept a small asylum at Chelsea and later established a large one at Clapham. He became a leading authority on insanity and claimed that nine out of ten of the insane could be cured. This important book contains a survey of psychiatric illnesses throughout Great Britain, with statistical comparisons to other European countries. Burrows was one of the first to make progress in defining a pathology of insanity, which served at last to raise psychiatry to the level of medicine. His Commentaries on the Causes, Forms, Symptoms, and Treatments, Moral and Medical, of Insanity (1828) was by far the most complete and practical treatise then published. Fine copy in original state. This book was translated into German by the famous psychiatrist J.C.A. Heinroth in 1822. ❧ Hunter & Macalpine, p. 778. Zilboorg, A History of Medical Psychology, p. 412. .

        Set of Four Shooting Prints, [Plate 1] Shooting, Going Out, [Plate 2] Shooting, Game Found, [Plate 3] Shooting, Dogs brought the Game, and reloading, [Plate 4] Shooting, Refreshing

      circa 1820. Colour printed aquatints heightened with gum arabic. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition with the exception of being trimmed within the platemark on the bottom margin. Four puncture holes on left margin where it was bound together. Plate 1, has some very minor foxing in margins. Image size: 9 ¾ x 12 5/8 inches. 12 5/8 x 15 3/4 inches. A handsome set of four shooting prints aquatinted by S. Himley after paintings by the celebrated sporting artist Dean Wolstenholme. Around 1820, S. Himley produced two sets of hunting aquatints after skilled paintings by Wolstenholme. These sets, expertly engraved in aquatint, were comprised of four plates illustrating shooting, and four plates depicting coursing. As with many of the prints after Wolstenholme's paintings it is difficult to decipher whether Himley's works reproduced paintings by Dean Wolstenhome Snr. or by his son Dean Wolstenholme Jnr. The Wolstenholme's were both talented sporting artists who earned a reputation as skilled animal painters. Both father and son exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy and garnered countless commissions from eager enthusiasts. They specialized in fine hunting scenes and had a natural flare for depicting movement, which lends their work an animation and life, which is truly compelling. This stunning set of four shooting prints is rarely found as a complete set and is a wonderful example of English sporting art at its best. Siltzer, The Story of British Sporting Prints 286-313, 364
