        Addresses and Squibs in the Contested Election for Members in Parliament, 1820.

      4to. A unique and invaluable collection of what is possibly a complete collection of addresses and squibs for the election of 1820 comprising 80 separate printed pieces, mostly 4to or smaller, Plus the printed poll "The Poll at the Election of Members of Parliament for the Town and County of Newcastle Upon Tyne, Taken Before Nicholas Naters, Esquire, Sheriff, on the 10th and 11th Days of March, 1820. Candidates Sir Matthew Ridley, Cuthbert Ellison, William Scott." Newcastle: Printed by George Angus, for Emerson Charnley, 1820. This would appear to be a collection put together during the mid-nineteenth century with a specially made title page set in a variety of attractive types; there is some trivial damp staining towards the lower part of a few sheets and at some time in the last 50 year it has been rebound in buckram. The first address is dated 3rd March and the last April 8th 1820; they record a typically robust and knockabout election with subtle and not-so-subtle claims and libels flying to and fro. Ridley and Ellison were elected, Ellison's part in the election being taken by his brother as he was abroad owing to health reasons during the hustings and election itself. There are also a few small newspaper clippings included, plus the cards and colours of each of the candidates. The compiler has made a few biographical notes here and there and has identified the anonymous characters in one of the printed poems. Whilst it is not uncommon to find individual addresses and squibs, I have handled many over the last thirty years, it is rare to see the output of a single election in such completeness and detail. The 36 page printed poll would appear to be a Large Paper copy [10½ x 8 inches] and printed on one side only.

        Rosarum Monographia; or, A Botanical History of Roses. To which is added, an appendix, for the use of cultivators, in which the most remarkable garden varieties are systematically arranged.

      London: James Ridgway, 1820 - Octavo (252 x 153 mm). Near-contemporary burgundy quarter roan, spine gilt lettered and blind ruled, scrolling floriate blind roll tool on sides, drab purple fine diaper-grain cloth sides. Ownership inscription at head of title page (dated 1853) sometime neatly erased; spine lightly sunned and chipped at head, joints rubbed, a few marks to sides. A very good well-margined copy, the plates fresh and clean. 18 hand-coloured engraved plates (watermarked "Turners 1817") by Watts after Lindley (one after Curtis), 1 plain plate. First edition - a second followed in 1830 - of this beautifully illustrated monograph that describes nearly 80 natural species of rose. "[William Jackson] Hooker introduced Lindley to Charles Lyell (1769–1849) of Kinnordy and to Robert Brown, through whom Lindley met Sir Joseph Banks. Banks promised Lindley that he might be sent overseas as a naturalist, either to succeed the late Joseph Arnold in Sumatra, or to Madagascar. However, in 1819 Banks instead decided to employ Lindley in his library and herbarium at Soho Square as an assistant to Robert Brown. Lindley grasped this opportunity with both hands, and by Banks's death had completed important work on roses, Digitalis, and apples. The acuity of his taxonomical judgement may be gauged by the survival of many genera which he defined when he was barely twenty-one. Lyell, to whom Lindley had dedicated his monograph on roses, presented him with £100, which Lindley used to purchase a microscope and to begin the herbarium, which at his death contained some 58,000 sheets" (ODNB). Lindley notes in his preface that "to the noble library and inexhaustible Botanical treasures of. Sir Joseph Banks, with that unexampled liberality for which he has been ever celebrated, I have been allowed the freest access. To these I am almost entirely indebted for the numerous and highly interesting species, either altogether new, or hitherto imperfectly known, from the hotter countries of Asia, Africa, and North America".

Whilst in India he studied painting under the tutelage of the eminent artist George Chinnery. He visited the Himalayas in 1815-16 where his brother, William, was the then Political Agent to Major General Martindell. William was appointed to visit local chiefs in those parts of the Himalayas to the north-west of Garhwal and between the rivers Sutlej and Jumna in Bashahr and James went with him.

        Courtly Leisure and Activities.

      Canton 2nd half of 19th century - An album (27.5 x 42.5 cm) of 12 watercolour and gouache studies on pith paper; occasional cracks. Contemporary red patterned silk binding. Fine scenes showing rich interiors and fine costumes - this album of especially large format. Pith seems not to have been adopted for painting until about 1820. Some European museums claim that their paintings on pith (often erroneously called "rice paper" or "mulberry pith") come from the end of the eighteenth century but there do not seem to be any dateable examples that are so early. There is a record of the Kaiser Franz of Austria buying some albums from an English Consul-General Watts in 1826. We know of an Italian Count who visited Canton in 1828 and had over 350 paintings on pith in his baggage when he died in Ambon two years later. In the British Library there is a scrap-book containing six pith paintings and a journal entry by a serving British officer who sent them home from India in 1829. These examples and contemporary accounts by visitors to Canton suggest that there was a flourishing trade in pith paintings by the early 1830s. Pith presumably came into use for painting to satisfy the increasing demand for small, inexpensive and easily transported souvenirs, following the massive growth in the China Trade in the first quarter of the nineteenth century. Paintings in oils, on board and canvas were costly and difficult to carry home. Earlier and more prestigious export water-colours had often been on a larger scale and painted on fine Chinese paper or on paper imported from Europe. The albums of pith paintings (and later the little glass-fronted boxes) were inexpensive, light, easy to pack and gave the pictures some protection on the long voyage home. Because many were sold in albums and hence protected from the light, they retain their bright colours to this day. Pith comes from the central column of spongy cellular tissue in the stem of a small tree called Tetrapanax Papyrifera, native to south-west China. It has had a variety of uses, some going back many centuries. At the imperial court both men and women wore coloured flowers made from pith in their hair. For use in painting, it is cut by hand with a knife into thin sheets from short lengths of the spongy tissue. Cutting is highly skilled and the constraints of the process mean that the finished sheets for painting seldom, if ever, measure more than about 30cms by 20cms. The sheets are dried, trimmed and used for painting without any further processing. Because of the nature of pith and its cellular structure, the gouache used by the Chinese sat on the surface and produced a bright and even sparkling effect. Very fine detail could be achieved but pith did not lend itself to the flat wash of colour favoured for European watercolours. Carl Crossman in his book The Decorative Arts of the China Trade (originally published under the title The China Trade) gives an excellent list of export painters with a note of those known to have painted on pith. These include Tingqua, Sunqua and Youqua. From 1757 until 1842 Canton was the only Chinese port open to trade with the west and it is no surprise that of the eight studios identified by Crossman as producing works on pith, six were in Canton. It seems that the 1830s and 1840s may have been the heyday of pith painting. The international trading bases, the waterfront 'factories' on the 'Hongs' in Canton, where they were produced, were partially burnt during the First Opium War (1839-41) and totally destroyed in a fire of 1856. The foreign trading companies then moved to Honan and subsequently put up splendid new offices on reclaimed land at Shamian Island, a little up river. As the result of the Treaty of Nanking, in 1842 additional Chinese ports were opened up for foreign trade and Hong Kong was established as a major trading centre. By 1860 references to China in the Illustrated London News, plentiful three years earlier, were few and far between. That is not to say that painting on pit [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Sketches of Scenery in South Wales

      0, London - Oblong folio, 44*30 cm, 6 litho plates, original printed wrappers, stitched as issued (very small half inch worm track and a few micro holes through upper wrapper and first three plates), wrapper title, printed by Moser and Harris's Lithographic Press, No 71 Grosvenor Street, Brunswick Square, nd but c 1820. Plates are: Aberdylis Vale of Neath. Melincourt Vale of Neath. Yscwd yr Rhyd In the grounds of W: Williams Esq. Yscwd Inon Cam Vale of Neath. Entrance to Porth yr Ogof Caveer Vale of Neath. Kil Hepsti Vale of Neath. Originally priced at 7s 6d. Very rare. The plates are quite crude, but represent an exceptionally early lithographic work, when techniques were still experimental. It is especially pleasing to have such a work in the original wrappers! Copies of some of the plates have been traced to the National Library of Wales, cataloged as soft-ground etchings. Swansea also have the wrappers and 5 of the 6 plates. As such, ours would appear to be the only known complete copy. Housed in a modern custom, felt lined, brown cloth up and over box with a paper label to spine. It was dissatisfaction with Moser and Harris's lithographic printing that prompted the subsequently famous Hulmandel to set up his own press, and experiment to improve on their work. George Orleans DELAMOTTE (1809-1821 fl) artist and teacher, was the son of a French refugee. His brother was William Alfred Delamotte (1775-1863), drawing master at the Sandhurst Military Academy, whose son Philip was a photography pioneer known for his series on the disassembly of the Crystal Palace in Hyde Park and its reconstruction in Sydenham.

Das Honorar überlaß ich Ihrer u. des Verlages Bestimmung, gestehe jedoch den Wunsch offen, dass ich ein Exemplar der Aglaya selbst gern behalten möchte.

Sie gelangten an zahlreichen Bühnen, vor allem in Dresden und Berlin, zur Aufführung und wurden von einem breiten Publikum begeistert aufgenommen" (NDB IX, 662).

        Opuscule sur la vinification, traitant des vices des méthodes usitées pour la fabrication des vins, et des avantages du procédé de Melle Élizabeth Gervais, brevetée du gouvernement par ordonnance de S.M. Louis XVIII, pour la même fabrication.

      Montpellier, J.-G. Tournel, 1820, broché, couv. muette de l'époque, petite étiquette de titre manuscrite sur le dos, ex. non rogné. -Très bel exemplaire dans sa condition d'origine. - in-8 de 112-(2) pp. ; Edition originale. Deuxième tirage. Très rare.Chwartz G : 40."Le réel inventeur de la méthode dite de "Mademoiselle Gervais" pour la fabrication du vin, est dom Nicolas Casbois, professeur de physique, membre de l'Académie de Metz. Dans un de ses mémoires, publié en 1782, il disait : "On conçoit que moins le vin en fermentation communique avec l'air extérieur, moins il doit perdre de cette partie volatile qui fait sa force et que l'on appelle esprit. Donc, pour avoir le vin le plus généreux, il faut le faire fermenter dans des vaisseaux parfaitement clos. Mais la fermentation produit du gaz, et ce gaz est élastique ; faire en sorte que le gaz puisse sortir sans que l'air extérieur puisse y pénétrer. Il n'y a qu'une soupape qui puisse faire cet office." C'est là très exactement le système de Mademoiselle Gervais. Ce procédé a occupé nombre de sociétés savantes. Il a obtenu pour son exploitation une autorisation du gouvernement. L'opuscule présent ne fait aucune allusion à N. Casbois. Il existe deux éditions de ce livre à la date de 1820, toutes les deux de Montpellier." (Chwartz).

        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.

        Truth Versus A Wesleyan Methodist, and Other Objectors; containing Remarks and Animadversions on a book, entitled "Methodist Error," &c.

      Josiah Shinn, Philadelphia 1820 - The distinguished author of this book is in defense of hundreds of black slave parishioners in his time who populated Methodist churches in Eastern and Southern states of the United States. It is replete with defenses of Methodist practices and has many footnotes throughout. It is certainly a milestone in the growth of christianity in the U.S. William Smith Stockton, was an acknowledged leader of the Reform Movement. He also was a leader in the Temperance Reform Movement four years before the American Temperance Society formed. Mr. Stockton, was also active in prison reform. The entirety of the book is in direct response to a previous book by John S. Watson, entitled "Methodist Error". This is indeed, a rare copy. The binding is of the tight back method with cords attached to the boards which has kept the volume intact despite the breakdown of the exterior folding leather edges. Interior hinges yet functioning. There is foxing throughout. At pp. 65/66 & 73/74 there is paper loss on those pages at the front lower corners not affecting any of the text. The red leather spine label states, legibly, "Truth Against Error". Cover edges are rubbed without major loss of leather. Appendix at the rear is from pp.245 thru 270. Insurance is reccomended.

De titelplaat toont dezelfde afbeelding, maar het is een andere houtsnede.Vertaling van het beroemde 'Pilgrim's progress from this world, to that which is to come' (Londen, 1678), een boek dat een ongekende verspreiding heeft gekend over de hele wereld, dat vertaald is in 200 talen en dat in Nederland in populariteit het werk van Jacob Cats naar de kroon stak. Het is een allegorie van het leven van de christen op weg naar het "werkelijke leven" na de dood. De schrijver, John Bunyan (1626-1688), was een eenvoudig handwerksman, die later voorganger werd van een baptistengemeente in Bedford. Hij heeft zo'n 60 boeken geschreven, maar 'The Pilgrim's Progress' steekt door zijn literaire kwaliteit boven zijn andere werk uit. De eerste Nederlandse uitgaven ervan verschenen vanaf 1682 bij Johannes Boekholt in Amsterdam; diens vierde druk van 1684 is de eerste geà llustreerde, met etsen van Jan Luyken. De titelpagina en de 8 prenten in deze uitgave van Pieter Bandsma zijn kopieën van die etsen; 33 jaar later, in 1762, zou bij Bandsma nog een vierde druk verschijnen, weer met dezelfde prenten.

        Sunday Police from the Boston Patriot; and Essays on the Observance of a Sabbath

      Joseph Rakestraw (tract 2) 1820 and 1822, Philadelphia - Hardcover. Second tract published by Joseph Rakestraw. RARE AMERICANA. This volume includes two tracts written in 1820 and 1822 that provide an engrossing account of an important debate of the day on whether the Bible requires the observance of the Sabbath and, if so, whether it is proper for a civil government to enforce this observance. Tract one reprints the text of an essay appearing in the Boston Patriot that holds the position that the enforcement of the Sabbath is "not warrantable from Scripture." It is followed by two responses in disagreement. The second tract of essays on the Sabbath's observance first reprints the Boston Patriot essay, and then prints several essays for and against the position of the writer in the Boston Patriot. Both tracts are in very good condition, with aging and some foxing. The front and rear pages of tract two are more heavily foxed. There is also foxing to the front and rear pastedowns. In a later black cloth binding with very light bumping and rubbing and the gilt title "Sunday Police" to front board. Tract one: 36 pages; tract two: 48 pages. 12mo.

      1820 - Single leaf, recto only. Manuscript in ink. Slightly soiled and chipped at edges. 3 Downing St [London], Friday Nov 24, A brief but interestingletter written immediately after Sir William Parry's return from his first Arctic expedition in search of the northwest passage. Though the recipient of the letter is unnamed, it is almost certainly Parry's publisher at John Murray, and the content indicates how swiftly operations were underway to begin printing the official narrative of the expedition. It reads in part: ?I shall be ready to commence printing on Monday. Let me know if I may employ Clowes. The Hecla has only just arrived in the River, and I have written to Mr. Beechey to come up to us as soon as possible, about the drawings. ? The references within the letter are to printer William Clowes of Northumberland-court who was indeed employed to set and print the text, and Liet Frederick William Beechey, who provided many of the illustrations from which the lithographed plates were prepared. The book in question would beJournal of a voyage for the discovery of a north-west passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific; performed in the years 1819?20 in his majesty's ships Hecla and Griperand was the first of Parry's arctic narratives to be published by John Murray.
