        Cornelius Nepos, De Vita Excellentium Imperatorum

      London - Scatchard & Letterman, Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme & Brown, et al, 1820 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A scarce first edition of Carey's corrected Dauphin Nepos. Bound in leather with gilt spine decoration. Very scarce. This scarce work is a corrected edition of the 1765 original quarto edition printed for the use of Dauphin on the order of Louis XIV. This taskwas intrusted to Carey by The Proprietors, as stated in the Preface, as latter editions of the Dauphin Nepos had been rendered corrupt by accidents of typography and unauthorised alterations. On the whole, Gentle Reader, I think I may safely venture to say, that, however few and slender my improvements, I here nevertheless present you with a better edition of the Dauphin Nepos, than was originally presented to the dauphin himself, by order of the Grand Monarque. Advertisement by John Carey, 1819Condition: The binding is generally tight and firm. The front free-endpaper has been removed. The front board is held by the cords only, and the rear is just starting but still firm. There ismild wear to the extremities, includingmild rubbing and edge wear. Internally the pages are generally bright with only slight browning and theoccasional spot or handling mark. With slightly browned tidemarks from the front to page xvii, and from page 225 to the rear. Overall the condition is good only with a very good interior..

        Landscape and Castle by Laporte

      circa 1820. Hand-coloured aquatint printed on wove paper. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, minor creasing, and mild rippling. Trimmed virtually to image on all sides. 15 1/2 x 19 inches. 15 3/4 x 19 7/8 inches. A stunning pastoral landscape engraved after an original work by the famous watercolour painter John Laporte. This print may be part of a series as the inscription below the title, which reads, "From Select Compositions of Modern Masters," seems to suggest. A student of the aquatint engraver J. C. Stadler and the Royal Academy Schools, Frederick Christian Lewis was a renowned and versatile painter, engraver, and etcher. Although he produced and exhibited many landscape paintings throughout his life, he was chiefly known for his prolific and varied engravings. In addition to his separately issued topographical, sporting, and landscape prints, he executed numerous engravings after the Old Masters and eminent contemporary artists like Landseer, Bonington, and Danby for publications such as John Chamberlaine's Original Designs of the most Celebrated Masters in the Royal Collection (1812) and William Ottley's Italian School of Design (1823). Lewis was also a skilled portraitist, and he received copious engraving commissions from various members of the Royal Family. Cf. Dictionary of National Biography.

        A Report to the Secretary of War of the United States, on Indian Affairs, Comprising a Narrative of a Tour Performed in the Summer of 1820

      Small 4to. Full pebble-grained leather with gilt lettering and decorations. 400pp. Frontispiece, foldout color map. Errata slip. Very good. Moderate age toning to first few leaves; foldout map shows a few old archival reinforcements on verso, but is complete and attractive. A tight, handsome first edition of this important study of the state of the Indian nation in 1820 and 1821. Morse (1761-1826), the "Father of American Geography," was also the father of telegraphy pioneer Samuel F.B. Morse. His advanced views on the Native Americans prompted Secretary of War John C. Calhoun to appoint him observer of the border Indian tribes in order to report their numbers, status, living conditions and future prospects, which he did for two years to compile this report. This sharp copy bears a scarce presentation inscription from Morse: Near the top of the front flyleaf, he boldly pens in brown ink [sic]: "To Charles Denison Esq / from the / The Author." There's also an interesting 20th century presentation inscription at the center of this leaf: "John Hauberg / Compliments / Wm. A. Meese / 9/28/14." Meese (1856-1920) was a noted attorney and civic leader who served on the board of the Illinois State Historical Society -- as did the man to whom he presented this book, John H. Hauberg (1869-1955). Hauberg wrote Meese's obituary for the "Journal of the Illinois State Historical Society," and a copy of his obit accompanies this book. The rear pastedown bears about a dozen pencilled lines referring to specific events on specific pages -- likely in the hand of Hauberg and quite likely research for a planned article in the "Journal of the Illinois State Historical Society." A lovely copy of this very scarce work, seldom seen in signed form. FIELD 1098. GRAFF 2908. NEW HOWES M851. SABIN 50945.

        CHU^KA SENCHU

      19. Very Good. [Ehon] Mori Shunkei, artist. CHU^KA SENCHU Tokyo & Kyoto: Unso^do^. 20.8 x 27.5 cm. Orihon folding album. Cloth-covered board covers with paper title slip as above. As Kaempfer describes it in his article in ESSAYS ON JAPANESE ART, this is a complex work bibliographically. Initially published in 1820 with a preface and poems throughout, it was reprinted sans poetry, preface and colophon many times throughout the rest of the century (also see Mitchell pp. 494,5.) This is a very well printed late Meiji edition consisting of the twelve color prints of insects and plants, with nothing else. Despite being a late rendition, a remarkable and lovely work. In very good colors and impression. In this Unso^do^ version, the double-page prints are not folded. The "made in Japan" stamp indicates a post-1911 date of export.

        L'ARTE DE CONNAITRE LES HOMMES PAR LA PHYSIONOMIE [...]. NOUVELLE ÉDITION, CORRIGÉE [...].

      PARIS, DEPÉLAFOL, 1820Legatura coeva in mezza pellecon fregi in oro ITALIANO Bella legatura coeva in mezza pelle con punte di color avana maculata; ai dorsi, autore, titolo e numero di tomo impressi in oro su due tasselli rosso e verde; filetti e greche in oro agli scomparti; tagli spruzzati di azzurro e sguardie marmorizzate. I volume: occhiello, ritratto dell'autore inciso fuori testo; frontespizio con titolo e vignetta incisa; 418 pagine numerate; 10 tavole fuori testo su 11, rispetto agli indici  manca il ritratto di Diderot, numerose vignette. II volume: occhiello,frontespizio; 236 pagine numerate; 62 tavole fuori testo, oltre a numerose vignette.  III volume: occhiello, frontespizio con vignetta; 292 pagine numerate; 48 tavole fuori testo, oltre a numerose vignette. IV volume: occhiello e frontespizio con vignetta, 316 pagine numerate; 23 tavole fuori testo, di cui dalla 185 alla 190 in sanguigna; le tavole 185  e 185 bis citate in  indice in realtà è una tavola sola con doppia numerazione; vistoso restauro al verso della tavola 182 più volte ripiegata. V volume: occhiello, frontespizio con vignetta; 320 pagine numerate; 60 tavole fuori testo, oltre alle vignette. VI volume: occhiello,  frontespizio con vignetta,  260 pagine; 84 tavole fuori testo, oltre alle vignette. VII volume: occhiello, frontespizio con vignetta,  278 pagine numerate; 93 (su 95, mancano la n. 336 e 392) tavole fuori testo, oltre alle vignette. VIII volume: occhiello, frontespizio; 288 pagine numerate;  62 tavole fuori testo, oltre alle vignette. IX volume: occhiello, frontespizio con vignetta in sanguigna; 315 pagine numerate; 68 tavole fuori testo (su 67 segnate in indice) incise in sanguigna. X volume:  occhiello, frontespizio; 269 pagine numerate. L'intero volume è dedicato all'indice  dell'opera. In totale 510 tavole fuori testo, oltre alle vignette (su 513 per le segnalate mancanze dovute non a estrapolazione non essendoci segni di effrazione, ma a presumibile dimenticanza del legatore). Sono rappresentate  un totale di circa 2.500 immagini fisiognomiche.  L'opera è una pregevole edizione illustrata dei saggi sulla fisiognomica di Lavater, filosofo e scrittore religioso svizzero, educato nella cultura religiosa szwingliana. Nei testi, l'autore si propone di cogliere, attraverso l'osservazione dei tratti somatici, non solo il carattere degli uomini ma le più sottili peculiarità della loro anima e le malattie cui sono predisposti. Le considerazioni di Lavater riprendono un filone di pensiero molto antico, e lo arricchiscono con una spiccata attenzione all'aspetto religioso e con un'aggiornata cultura filosofica. I Physiognomische Fragmente di Lavater furono impressi la prima volta, in tedesco, a Lipsia e Winthertur fra il 1775 e il 1778, in quattro volumi illustrati. L'opera venne LIBROta, oltre che in-8°, anche in-4° ma (come riporta il Graesse) con le figure avantilettera. L'impressione, a cura di M. Moreau, è arricchita dalla vita dell'autore nonché da considerazioni sugli scritti riguardanti la fisiognomica di Della Porta, Camper, Gall e altri autori. L'apparato illustrativo, eseguito sotto la direzione del pittore M. Vincent, è in parte derivato da modelli di celebri artisti; altre figure sono silhouettes dalla viva inchiostratura. Le tavole e il testo del vol. IX sono dedicati soprattutto alla comparazione delle fisionomie umane con i musi degli animali. L'ordine delle illustrazioni è elencato in un indice per ciascun tomo.  Esemplare in buono stato  stato conservativo complessivo, sporadiche macchie o fioriture, più accentuate a qualche volume.

        Natives pursuing Kangaroos in the neighbourhood of Sydney

      [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. Marvellous page from a child's scrap book with a naâve 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.

Influential in Spain and Portugal, this essay on the Spanish constitution of 1812 was also a profound influence in Latin America. It was first delivered in 1811 before the Cortes that brought constitutional monarchy to Spain. This translation was prepared on the occasion of the revolution at Porto on August 24, 1820 that overthrew the regency and paved the way for the parliamentary deliberations that resulted in the Portuguese constitution of 1822. It also helped to inspire the Latin American independence movements of the 1820s. The identity of "R.F.C." is unknown. Arguelles was a Spanish statesman and diplomat.

        Archive of Letters of New York Lawyer Abraham Crist and His Family

      1820. [Crist, Abraham (d. 1852)]. [Archive of Letters of New York Lawyer Abraham Crist and His Family.] c. 150 items, c.1820-1854: Various sizes ranging from 4-1/2" x 7-1/2" to 8" x 10." Light toning and fold lines, some letters dampstained or edgeworn with negligible loss to text. All items housed in hinged sleeves in a three-ring binder. * Active in New York City and Brooklyn, Crist was a prominent member of the bar who perished in the wreck of the Hudson River steamer Henry Clay, one of the greatest maritime disasters in American history. (His death was mentioned in papers as far away as California.) This archive includes a great deal of Crist's professional correspondence dating back to the 1820s. Many letters concern his dealings with John C. Newkirk, a leading attorney of Hudson, N.Y. Another correspondent was Greene C. Bronson, a prominent Utica, N.Y. attorney and politician. There is also an interesting 1829 letter from Albany (author's name illegible) commenting on Crist's application to the State Legislature on behalf of a bank. The rest of the letters deal with Crist's estate and the fate of his family. One poignant letter from this period, dated 1855, concerning Crist's son, Abraham, discussing his difficulties coping with life and his desire to be like his father. There is also a letter from an attorney concerning litigation against the Dry Dock Company, owners of the Henry Clay, along with related letters with comments on the litigation.

        Nouvelles méthoedes pour la determination des orbites des comètes.Paris: Huzard-Courcier, 1806-1820.

      First edition, second issue [with the reset title page and supplement], of the invention of the method of least squares - "the automobile of modern statistical analysis" (Stigler). A rare complete copy including both supplements (in first issue) and Legendre's 1820 note in which he attacked Gauss for having claimed the method his own - "the most famous priority dispute in the history of statistics" (<i>ibid</i>).<br/><br/> "In 1805 Legendre published the work by which he is chiefly known in the history of statistics, <i>Nouvelles méthoedes pour la determination des orbites des comètes</i>. At eighty pages this work made a slim book, but it gained a fifty-five page supplement (and a reprinted title page [i.e., the offered issue]) in January of 1806, and a second eighty-page supplement in August 1820. The appendix presenting the method of least squares occupies nine of the first eighty pages; it is entitled 'Sur la méthode des moindres quarrés.' For stark clarity of the exposition the presentation is unsurpassed; it must be counted as one of the clearest and most elegant introductions of a new statistical method in the history of statistics." (Stigler). <br/><br/> However, "in early 1809 Gauss published his <i>Theoria Motus Corporum Coelestium</i> which also presented the method and linked it with the normal distribution, adding: 'On the other hand our principle, which we have made use of since the year 1795, has lately been published by Legendre'...<br/><br/> "Gauss deeply affronted Legendre by referring to the method of least squares as 'our principle' (principium nostrum in Latin) and by claiming that he, Gauss, had been using the method since 1795. The ensuing priority dispute, and another one involving the law of quadratic reciprocity of number theory, exacerbated the relationship between the two men. The heat of the dispute never reached that of the Newton- Leibniz controversy, but it reached dramatic levels nonetheless. Legendre appended a semi anonymous attack on Gauss to the 1820 version of his 'Nouvelles methodes pour la determination des orbites des cometes' [the second supplement included in this copy], and Gauss solicited reluctant testimony from friends that he had told them of the method before 1805. Plackett (1972) reviews most of the evidence. A recent study of this and further evidence suggests that, although Gauss may well have been telling the truth about his prior use of the method, he was unsuccessful in whatever attempts he made to communicate it before 1805. In addition, there is no indication that he saw its great general potential before he learned of Legendre's work. Legendre's 1805 appendix, on the other hand, although it fell far short of Gauss's work in development, was a dramatic and clear proclamation of a general method by a man who had no doubt about its importance." (Stigler, The History of Statistics, pp. 12 & 145).. 4to (265 x 210 mm), contemporary dark blue half morocco with raised bands and gilt title to spine, paper label with numbering to spine, top-edge gilt, ex-libris of Henri Viellard to free end-paper, book plate of the Institut Catholique de Paris to front pastedown, first and final text leaf with small rubber stamp of the Institut, pp. [2:half-title] [i-iii] iv-viii, 80 and 1 engraved plate; 55 [1:blank]; [1-] 2-80 and 1 engraved plate.

        Technical drawing of Whaling equipment

      France,: circa, 1820.. Original drawing in ink on paper, 220 x 290 mm., ms. notations in ink and pencil; in fine condition, mounted. A finely-executed nineteenth-century technical drawing showing the tryworks and various implements involved in on-board whale processing. This drawing, with its various manuscript corrections, may have been a preliminary work for a French publication on whaling. It is drawn with the usual competence and finesse associated with French maritime art of this period.The upper section of the drawing shows different types of harpoon, lance, forks, ladles and strainers, and a sail-buoy used to mark whale carcasses. The lower section of the drawing shows the "tryworks" - the on-board furnace used for rendering whale blubber into oil. The tryworks was the most distinguishing feature of a whaleship, and consisted of two cast-iron trypots set into a brick furnace.At the time when this drawing was made, French whaling activity was mainly concentrated in the Pacific, where a formidable fleet operated even before any French colonies were established in the area.

        The Experimental Farmer: being strictures on various branches of husbandry and agriculture, drawn from a long series of practice in different parts of Great-Britain; containing Observations on planting and Preserving Young Trees, with an approved method of thinning them, to become timber. Likewise, Plans for Laying-out Land, on a five and four field system. Also, a new method to bring the most barren land into cultivation, for meadows and sheep walks: and a variety of other useful information in every branch of this art, absolutely necessary for every person, from the opulent farmer, to the proprietors of small pieces of land

      London: printed for Sherwood, Neely, and Jones, [N.d., but publisher&#39;s advertisements dated September 1820]. 8vo. (8 7/8 x 5 3/8 inches). Half- title, 1p. errata, 16pp. publisher&#39;s catalogue at end dated September 1820. Occasional wood-engraved decorations. Original boards, rebacked. First edition, second issue, of this charming work, full of fascinating practical information on land management at the turn of the 19th century This appears to be a second, remainder issue of the first edition: the dedication is dated 1806, the text has occasional watermark dates of 1804, but the title is a cancel issued by Sherwood, Neely & Jones who are also responsible for the publisher&#39;s catalogue at the end which is dated 1820. The first issue was dated 1806 and published by T. Ostell. No copies of the present issue are listed as having sold at auction in the past thirty years, and only one example of the 1807 issue. "Although this Work may not be written in fine stile and polished language ... it will be found to be clear and comprehensive ... suited as well to the understanding of the refined Gentleman as to that of the industrious farmer&#39; (introduction, p.ix). The work is largely made up from many short entries under numerous sub-headings, and reads like a note-book of observations and calculations: a charmingly straight-forward work which nevertheless imparts a great deal of practical knowledge. For example, in the section on planting trees, Tibbs extols the financial benefits of growing trees for timber and in an innovative way combines the purely financial calculations of the costs and profits of planting an acre of land with practical instructions on how to plant and manage the plantation for the period needed to see a good profit (42 years). According to the introduction, Thomas Tibbs received his initial training in agriculture from his grandfather at Fidden Farm in Wiltshire, from there he moved to the Chiltern Hundreds where he farmed on his own land. He subsequently worked for Charles Hill, J. Sainsbury, and King George III&#39;s Flemish Farm before becoming Land Steward to Lord Grenville (the dedicatee) at Burnham in Buckinghamshire: this wide practical experience allowing him to write with authority on the numerous subjects he covers in this work.

        Memorial for Sunday School Girls; Being an Authentic Account of the Conversion, Experience, and Happy Deaths, or Twelve Girls

      Philadelphia: Published by the Sunday and Adult School Union, 1820 Original blue printed boards. . Small twelvemo. Woodcut frontispiece. 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. 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 coming...Good bye! I don't like to say so to my mother, she will be unhappy. Bury me with my sister and mother..." The author, a "minister of the Gospel," seems to revel in the early deaths of these young girls.
