        suite de 6 gravures pour Tales of my Landlord.

      - London [Londres], Rodwell and Martin, 1820. In-folio, 1ff-6gravures sous chemise. Suite rare et précoce pour illustrer Tales of my Landlord de Walter Scott. Les 5 premiers romans de cette série ont été publiés entre 1816 et 1819, les deux derniers en 1832. Cette suite illustre donc les 5 premiers romans et le roman The Heart of Midlothian est illustré par 2 gravures. Toutes les gravures sont sous serpentes et l'ensemble est relié à l'époque par un fil (rompu ici mais sans atteinte à la solidité de l'ensemble). Cette suite semble avoir eu un tirage particulièrement réduit et ne se rencontre que très peu. Seul le British Museum semble la posséder. Par ailleurs, le livre de Coxhead sur Stothard mentionne bien cette suite mais annonce curieusement 7 gravures dont 2 qui n'ont aucun rapport avec Tales of my landlord et n'annonce pas la seconde gravure pour The Heart of Midlothian. La suite est pourtant bien telle que parue comme le prouve le fil reliant les gravures à la couverture. Rousseurs. Très rare suite. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Odyssey of Homer. Translated by Alexander Pope, esq. To which is added, The Battle of the Frogs and Mice.

      London:: W. Wilson, 1820.. 2 volumes. 12mo (in 6s). [2], 246; [2], 259 pp. Original full red straight-grained morocco, gilt rolls surround, gilt spine; joints worn, spine head replaced with kozo, rubbed, vol. I lacks rear free endpaper. Bookplate of Bernardine Murphy, bookplate removed from rear pastedown; inscribed to John B. Little �from his father� March 2, 1821. There is an oddity about this 2-volume set. The fore-edge artist, known as the �Dover� [Marks & Co.] painter, inscribed the two volumes under a previous manuscript ownership mark for John Little from ca.1821, labelling the fore-edge scenes underneath the name (somewhat in the style compatible with the earlier ownership doodle). Above the name is a small tiger�s head, John Little�s name, and under: �Ithaca� or �Mount Olympus.� On the outer edges of Little�s name and the fore-edge scene, are short hatching marks in ink that serve to unify all the markings as if by the same hand. It is known that John Little�s father inscribed the book to him in 1821 (different handwriting); the �Dover� artist is known to work in London in the 1920-30s. Thereby it appears a possible deception is made by the artist to imply the scene is painted contemporary with the father�s dated inscription. WITH TWO FORE-EDGE PAINTINGS by the �Dover� painter (associated with Marks & Co.), showing scenes of �Ithaca� and �Mount Olympus.� Painted ca. 1920s or early 1930s. � The story added to the end of the text is attributed to various authors, but primarily Homer (or, Pigres of Halicarnassus), The Battle of the Frogs and Mice, [also known as �Batrachomyomachia�] is a comic epic or parody of the Iliad, was translated by Archdeacon Parnel. � PROVENANCE: Johnathan B. Little � The Catholic philanthropist Bernardine Murphy is Sir Daniel J. and Countess Bernardine Murphy Donohue (1904-1968; married in 1954). They resided in Los Angeles, at one time buying the mansion of Earle C. Anthony, the founder of KABC. That mansion was donated to the Immaculate Heart Sisters in 1971 upon the death of the Countess. The couple established the Daniel Murphy Foundation in 1957 in memory of Bernardine�s father to promote important Roman Catholic and other philanthropic causes. Mrs. Donohue is entombed next to Cardinal James Francis McIntyre. The art collection of Sir Daniel Donohue was recently sold at auction. [JWRB]

        Liberotti Impronte

      Incisore di Camei Roma, Rome 1820 - 33 x 21 cm. 102 miniature plaster medallions in relief (white gesso) within gilt decorated borders. A souvenir of the Grand Tour, depicting famous sculptures and works of art in relief as miniature plaster casts, from classical sculpture to Canova. The master carver, Giovanni Liberotti, a nineteenth-century Roman gem engraver who specialized in making these souvenirs. Liberotti had been initially commissioned to make these impressions based on gems in the collection of Giovanni Battista Sommariva (1760-1826), a noted art patron and collector extraordinaire. Later Liberotti and other competitors would market the boxed sets in Rome to eager tourists. Nothing is more impressive than the original engraver's ability here to capture the very essence and detail of the larger masterpieces in such miniature intaglios. It is not surprising that Goethe himself "owned many thousands of casts [and] told his correspondents years later that no greater treasure could be brought back from Rome." Manuscript identification of the 102 plaster medallions at inside front cover. Box with moderate wear. Orig. leather backed clam shell box, and decorated, marbled wood boards with functioning clasps at fore-edge. Very good [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE LIFE AND ADVENTURES OF ROBINSON CRUSOE

      London: Printed for T. Cadell and W. Davies, 1820. n. This edition includes a long introduction giving an account of Defoe's life and works. The plates here have been re-engraved after the earlier illustrations were judged as poor and inaccurate. DNB says that Stothard (1755-1834) "illustrated almost the whole range of English literature with a taste that seldom failed and a sympathy that was often remarkable," attaining "a place which is second to none for invention and grace." He was a close friend of Blake, and his work often resembles that of his more famous colleague.. 254 x 159 mm. (10 x 6 1/4"). Two volumes. Pleasing late 19th century dark green three-quarter morocco, raised bands, spines gilt in compartments with nautical centerpieces, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Engraved title page vignettes and 20 plates (including frontispiece) by Charles Heath after Thomas Stothard, all of the engraved material done on India paper and mounted. A Large Paper Copy. Lowndes I, 614. Spines uniformly faded to olive (vague fading also to parts of the leather on the sides of the volumes), extremities just very sightly rubbed, isolated mild marginal foxing, short closed tear to fore edge of one title page, otherwise a fine copy, the bindings with no significant wear, the leaves clean and fresh, and the engravings with none of the expected foxing.

        Florence & Kate or Love's Vicissitudes. By Marianne. Illustrated by Harry. Complete in Two Vols. Not Yet. NB: The Authoress of this work reserves the right of Translating it. [manuscript title]

      No place, no date, but UK, 1820 or afterwards, 1820. Not published; it is probable there was a second volume as stated on the title-page and at the conclusion of the text ("End of First Volume"), but there is an intriguing notation in contemporary hand also on the title-page under "Complete in Two Vols." that states "Not Yet.". Some smudges, browning and light stains; in very good condition. A description with additional photographs is available upon request.. 12mo, 15 x 11 cm, early 19th century diced calf with gilt rules on the upper and lower boards and spine, 155 pages. Decorated title-page, six inserted plates with original art work (three watercolors and three pencil, pen & ink sketches), three vignettes, rubricated chapter heads and ink tailpieces. Approximately 15,000 words in a neat hand in brown ink. Minor textual corrections in the same hand, but overall the manuscript appears to be a fair copy. A manuscript novella set in an English country town, "in the year 1820," centering on the lives and intrigues of several young women and men and their romances and adventures. They encounter local gypsies, one of the ladies dies of a mysterious illness, one of the men is dangerously driven to gamble, there are flirtations, jealousies, marriage proposals and the discovery of a long-lost father, who had been imprisoned in an underground grotto. The manuscript is clearly an amateur imitation of the popular Regency novel of manners, but it is not without its charms, and it was carefully composed and illustrated with original (also a bit amateurish) art. The manuscript has the appearance of a friendship album with its decorative lettering and artwork.

        Gungotree The Holy Shrine of Mahadeo

      Rodwell & Martin, London 1820 - Hand-coloured aquatint by Robert Havell & Son, after Fraser. Several skillful marginal repairs, not affecting the image. A fine example of a view taken during the first recorded journey by Europeans through the Himalayas. Fraser wrote of this place, said to the source of the Ganges, "We were now in the centre of the stupendous Himalas, the loftiest and perhaps the most rugged range of mountains in the world. We were at the source of that noble river, equally an object of veneration and a source of fertility, plenty and opulence to Hindustan; and we had now reached the holiest shrine of Hindoo worship which these holy hills contain." 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.'

        Essai sur les moyens de régénérer l'agriculture en France et plus particulièrement les départements du Midi

      Marseilles: chez Antoine Richard. Very Good. 1820-21. First Edition; First Printing. Hardcover. 3 vols. pages; Three volumes bound in contemporary half calf over marbled paper-covered boards with tiny vellum tips reinforcing the corners, flat spines -- each volume has a pair of green leather labels lettered in gilt. These three volumes once belonged to Dr. Arpad Plesch, with the great collector's impressive red leather book-label tooled and lettered in gilt mounted to the front paste-down of the first volume. The spine of the first volume has a small piece missing along the top edge and has recieved a minor repair, there is a surface scrape along the spine of the third volume, which is not particularly noticeable, and there is moderate worming to the blank margins (only) of 57 leaves towards the end of the volume. In general, this copy is handsome and sound. While these volumes would be of considerable interest as a representation of the state of agriculture in the south of France in 1820, the material at the heart of the third volume represents an important and early treatise on all aspects of the variety and cultivation of grapes, and winemaking. The text goes into significant detail -- how to build, support and work vineyards, the varieties of grapes and their suitability to the terrain and climate, diseases and problems ith grapes, wine bottles, corks, basements, cellars, tanks, vinegars, distillation and fortification, etc. Little is known about the author, J.-S. Lardier, but at least one reference relates that he was born in 1753 and that he was Provençal. Lardier's "Essai," while a classic work of French agriculture (and viticulture), is both rare and unusual in its form -- to the extent that various sources cannot agree, even, on just what constitutes a set. The Bibliothèque Nationale copy seems to have only the first two volumes [but as it does not specify pagination details, their catalogue description makes it impossible to say just what they have, or do not have]. Quérard, 4:557 (compiled just a decade after this publication appeared) cites only two volumes ("5 livraisons en 2 volumes"), and gets the dates a bit mixed up. Oddly, the title page to Vol. 2, has an imprint dated "1821;" vols. 1 and 3, title pages have the date: "1820." Some of the confusion seems to result from the evidence that this publication was issued in parts -- [called here "livraisons"]. Our copy has ten livraisons. The first leaf of each of the octavo gatherings, marked with a number at the foot of the page, also has the specification of the particular livraison number. At the end of our volume III, at the foot of the final paragraph of the text appears this note: "Fin de la dixième livraison." But it should be noted that we found only one record of an institution holding individual livraisons or issues of the parts of Lardier's "Essai" -- [Médiathèque Draguignan has 3 parts, broché] . Not many of the examples bound into volumes have survived, either. COPAC locates just a single example: [Senate House Libraries, University of London, apparently just volume I]. OCLC appears to have 8 different accession numbers, but this is highly misleading as 5 of the 8 describe only libraries reporting a modern microform facsimile reprint, which appears to have included volume I only: [Goldsmiths' Library, University of London./ Goldsmiths'-Kress no. 22806./ Electronic reproduction./ Farmington Hills, Mich. :/ Thomson Gale]. OCLC does locate five sets printed in the early 1820's on paper. (Northwestern University; Indiana University, Bloomington; Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle de Paris; Bibliothèque municipale de Lyon; and the aforementioned Bibliothèque Nationale set (2 vols. only). To confuse matters further, it appears that two sets recorded have four volumes -- [Northwestern University, and Bibliothèque Universitaire de Pharmacie. Both have the date "1821" on that fourth title page. Another set in four volumes appears to have been sold at auction in Paris at Alde, June, 2014]. Volume IV, missing in nearly all sets, including ours, was devoted to further details about individual fruits (not grapes or winemaking) and it also has a significant section on olives and their cultivation. Perhaps to make up in part for the lack of this, the first owner of our set had bound up at the end of the first volume a slightly later pamphlet on the subject: "Lettres d'Antoine David sur les oliviers. Nouvelle édition avec des notes de M. Feissat aîné" -- Marseille : Imp.-Libr. Feissat, 1832. 60 pp. (OCLC Number: 369089176, 3 locations only: Harvard; Bibliothèque Nationale; and Bibliothèque municipale de Lyon). After the final leaf of this rare inclusion, our copy has a leaf titled "Explication des Figures" -- the 3 plates in our copy are each placed as directed on this leaf. These plates are lithographs, with multi-figures -- ("Buisson d'après Grive') and are all in fine condition. Each of our volumes has errata at the end. While it would be preferable to find a set with the elusive fourth volume, it is worth noting that the vastly wealthy Dr. Arpad Plesch (1889–1974), who formed one of the great collections ever assembled of botanical books, determined that this copy met his standards. Precise collation available upon request. .

        An enquiry into the cause of the present distress of the people. . Second edition.

      London: printed for the author and sold by J. Ridgway 1820 - 8vo., vii + (1) + 324 + (4)pp., including the final Advertisement and errata leaves, contemporary half calf over marbled boards, spine simply gilt with a label. A very good copy from the early 19th century library of Bernard Edward Howard, 12th Duke of Norfolk> (1765-1842), with his bookplate on pastedown. First edition with this title (see further notes below). This was actually a reissue, with only a different title-page, of Hall's earlier (1805) The effects of civilization on the people in European states.> According to a 19th century note in a copy at the University of London, Hall's book 'seems not to have sold well' (in 1805), hence, we presume, his new attempt to republish it, with a rather more topical title-page, in 1820. Whatever its history, Hall's book - his magnum opus - deserves a significant place in Socialist literature, as it was, according to a ms note in the Burns' copy, 'a most notable book'. Alexander Gray (The Socialist tradition: Moses to Lenin.> 1946) places Hall in the select group of five English Pre-Marxians (the other four being William Thompson, Thomas Hodgskin, J.F. Bray and John Gray). Gray defines 'pre-Marxians' as meaning 'those writers who arrived at what is substantially the Marxian theory of exploitation and of surplus value - not in frequently, like Marx, building on Ricardo. Indeed, Hall (1740? - 1820?) was the earliest of these Ricardian Socialists and was held in high regard by Marx himself. Dr. Anton Menger (The Right to the whole produce of labour.> 1899) has also acknowledged Hall's 'great influence on the older English socialists, and through them indirectly on the socialist movement of our own day' (op. cit. p.47). And Judith Blow Williams (Guide to English economic history,> vol.II, p.542) uses the term 'important' in her brief description of Hall's book, an adjective she tends to use sparingly. * The original 1805 printing is almost as rare but with copies at Goldsmiths (Un. of London) + NLS + John Rylands, and this, too, not in BL.

Watercolour of 3 birds on unwatermarked wove paper (ca. 48 x 35 cm), all standing on a branch, the middle branch signed: "JG Prêtre/ 1825". With the birds numbered in pencil, and the plate number and bird names in pencil in the lower left corner.

      For the published work see: Anker 502; Balis, Van diverse pluimage 75; Nissen, IVB 932; Zimmer, pp. 626-628. Original watercolour of a male and a female Metallic Sunbird (Anthreptes metallicus) and a male Flame-breasted Sunbird (Cinnyris solaris) by the prolific zoological artist Jean Gabriel Prêtre, produced for Temminck's Nouveau recueil de planches coloriées d'oiseaux... (Paris, 1820-1839). Sunbirds make up a family of very small passerine birds. The Metallic Sunbird, best known as the Nile Valley Sunbird(here named: Souimanga Métallique), are found in north-west Africa and the Middle East, while the Flame-breasted Sunbird (here: Souimanga Souci) is primarily found in Indonesia and East Timor.Temminck's lavishly illustrated Nouveau recueil de planches coloriées d'oiseaux... issued in 102 parts between 1820-1839, was published as a kind of continuation to Buffon's Histoire naturelle des oiseaux (1770-1786). In total it contains ca. 600 engraved plates with about 800 figures of birds by Nicolas Huet and Prêtre, and it's considered "the most monumental work of the post-Napoleonic period" (Balis).Paper slightly browned.

        Of population. An enquiry concerning the power of increase in the numbers of mankind, being an answer to Mr Malthus's essay on that subject.

      London, Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown, 1820. 8vo., (2) + 22 + 626pp., including the half-title, two or three leaves at both beginning and end a little foxed, contemporary half calf over marbled boards, neatly rebacked to match reusing the original spine label. A very good copy. First edition. A strongly argued attack on both the principles and statistics of Malthus's Essay>. It was referred to frequently in the Parliamentary and public debate which followed the introduction of James Scarlett's Poor Relief Bill in May 1821. Patricia James [Population Malthus>] chronicles the debates which proceeded along 'Populationist' and 'Anti- Populationist' lines, with Godwin's 'elaborate work' being quoted in support of the former.

        Principles of political economy : considered with a view to their practical application

      London: John Murray, Albermarle-Street, 1820. First Edition. Paper-covered Boards. First edition, with the rare 4-page publisher's catalog, dated April 1820, tipped in at the front. 8vo: vi, 601, [1]pp. "London: Printed by C. Roworth, Bell-yard, Temple-bar." on the colophon and title-page verso, as called for. Bound in the original publisher's drab blue paper-covered boards, uncut and largely unopened, with brown paper spine and remnants of the original printed label still legible. Internally, fresh and bright with only occasionally spotting, the original spine largely perished but restored sensitively by an expert conservationist, the boards somewhat stained and bumped but thoroughly original, the hinges reinforced. Provenance: small owner's book label, probably contemporary, partly effaced, reading T ? Cobb. Preserved in an attractive clamshell case with a leather spine label gilt. An unsophisticated copy of a truly scarce (in the publisher's binding), important, and desirable book, a cornerstone of economic thought and a major influence on other scientific endeavors, including the principles of evolution developed by Charles Darwin and Alfred Russell Wallace. Goldsmiths' 22767. Kress C577. Lowndes 1459 The title of Malthus's final major work is "something of a misnomer, as the book was conceived as a series of tracts rather than a comprehensive and systematic treatise. . . . The Principles had only a limited impact at the time, and was severely criticized by J. R. McCulloch and [David] Ricardo; the latter prepared extensive critical notes. But more recently it has received greater recognition, largely as a result of the comments by J. M. Keynes in the 1930s. Keynes argued that Malthus's theory of effective demand provided a scientific explanation of unemployment, and that the hundred-year domination of Ricardo over Malthus had been a disaster for the progress of economics. Keynes believed that if economics had followed Malthus instead of being constrained by Ricardo in an artificial groove, the world would be a much wiser and richer place." (ODNB)

        SELECTIONS FROM LETTERS WRITTEN DURING A TOUR OF THE UNITED STATES, IN THE SUMMER AND AUTUMN OF 1819; ILLUSTRATIVE OF THE CHARACTER OF THE NATIVE INDIANS, AND OF THEIR DESCENT FROM THE LOST TEN TRIBES OF ISRAEL; AS WELL AS DESCRIPTIVE OF THE PRESENT SITUATION AND SUFFERINGS OF EMIGRANTS, AND OF THE SOIL AND STATE OF AGRICULTURE

      Nottingham: J. Dunn, 1820. FIRST EDITION. The 11 letters here were written with the intent of discouraging prospective British emigrants from seeking their fortunes in the new United States. Howitt crossed the Atlantic with his brother in 1819, and toured the country between Boston and Baltimore, finding little to recommend settling in the new country. He was unimpressed by agriculatural prospects, deploring the climate and the soil, was dismayed by disease, rattlesnakes, and primitive conditions, and was absolutely appalled by the institution of slavery. He found native-born Americans arrogant and likely to cheat the emigrant; in general, as Howes observed, he took "a dim view of the Republic, especially the back woods regions." The final letter addresses the theory, espoused by William Penn and others, that American Indians were descended from the lost tribes of Israel, and discusses similarities between Native languages and Hebrew.. 190 x 114 mm. (7 3/8 x 4 1/2"). xxi, [i], 230 pp. FIRST EDITION. Publisher's blue boards, (most of) paper label on spine. In a modern turquoise cloth clamshell box with brown label on spine. Remnant of ex-libris on front flyleaf. Howes H-740; Sabin 33372. Front board detached, boards somewhat foxed and soiled, much of the paper chipped off spine, one gathering a little foxed at head of gutter, isolated rust spots or smudges, otherwise an excellent copy internally, clean and fresh.

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

      Philadelphia: Joseph Rakestraw (tract 2), 1820 and 1822. Hardcover. Very Good. 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. Black cloth boards with gilt title to front board. AMHIST/022609.

        Ivanhoe; A Romance. By the author of "Waverley," &c.

      Edinburgh / London: Printed for Archibald Constable and Co. Edinburgh; and Hurst, Robinson, and Co. 90, Cheapside, London., 1820. Early Reprint. Morocco. Near Fine+. Second Edition of "one of the most remarkable novels of the nineteenth century" (ODNB), with all press figures and two typographical errors (p. 89 of vol. II misnumbered 98; first press figure numeral on p. 132, vol. III, in wrong font and printed upside down) conforming to those specified by Todd & Bowden. Complete in three octavo volumes. [4],xxxiii,[1],306; [2],327,[1]; [2]371,[1]pp, including fly-titles but without half-titles and advertisements in vol. III. Beautifully bound in early black straight-grain morocco, covers elaborated framed in gilt and blind, flat spines richly gilt in six compartments (title and volume numbers stamped in gilt to second and fifth), all edges gilt, marbled end papers. A superb set, the handsome bindings tight and square; light, intermittent foxing (heavier to end papers), but generally clean and bright. Todd and Bowden 140Ad. Grolier English 100, 71. For nineteenth century readers, Ivanhoe was perhaps the most celebrated of Scott's novels (according to Leslie Stephen, it was "Scott's culminating success in a book-selling sense, and marked the highest point both of his literary and social prosperity."). Before Ivanhoe, Scott's plots were drawn from Scottish history, but Ivanhoe launched a major change, based on English history and set earlier than any novel Scott had yet written, at the time of the Crusades. First released 20 December 1819, but with 1820 on the title page, the first-issue printing of 6000 copies was increased to 10,000 for this second edition, issued sometime after 15 January 1820 (first edition, third issue) and before 2 March 1820, when Catharina Crawley (possibly Catharina Crawley Boevey, who married Samuel James Ballard on 21 November 1822, in Flaxley, Gloucestershire) singed and dated the title page of our vol. I. "Ivanhoe is essentially a moral work. It is an intense consideration of misogyny and racial oppression, in which the attempted rape of Rebecca the Jewess by the dominant figure of the Norman master race, Brian de Bois-Guilbert, is a powerful symbol of the themes of the novel. Ivanhoe may be set in a distant period, but it has a political modernity . . ."
