        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.

        [Traquet oreillard, Traquet à queue noire & Traquet leucomèle (= plate 257 from Temminck's Nouveau recueil de planches coloriées d'oiseaux ... )]. [France], 1823. Watercolour of 3 birds on unwatermarked wove paper (ca. 48 x 35 cm), all standing on a branch, the lowest branch signed: "JG Prêtre/ 1823". With plate number 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 Black-eared Wheatear (Oenanthe hispanica), a Blackstart (Oenanthe melanura) and Pied Wheatear (Oenanthe pleschanka) by the prolific zoological artist Jean Gabriel Prêtre, produced for Temminck's Nouveau recueil de planches coloriées d'oiseaux... (Paris, 1820-1839). The Black-eared Wheatear and the Pied Wheatear are both small migratory passerine birds. The Black-eared Wheatear is found in northern Africa, southern Europe, and from the Middle East to China, and the Pied Wheatear in eastern Europe and Asia. The Blackstart, also described as belonging to the genus Cercomela instead of the genus Oenanthe, is a small passerine bird found in desert regions in North Africa, the Middle East and the Arabian Peninsula.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. A beautiful watercolour of three wheatears.

        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 . . ."

The paper was in response to Eardley-Wilmot's A Letter to the Magistrates of England on the Increase of Crime: And an Efficient Remedy Suggested for Their Consideration, first published in 1820, which suggesting that severe punishment of juvenile offenders often led them to a lifetime of criminal activity. He also argued for better prison conditions as an aid to rehabilitation of offenders, a claim refuted in Observations.

Emma von Roxburgh (or Emma di Resburgo), a "melodramma eroico" with a libretto by Gaetano Rossi, was first performed at the Teatro San Benedetto in Venice on June 26, 1819. "The Scottish local colour and romantic topoi of the settings (a castle, a knightly hall, a graveyard) gave Meyerbeer his first opportunity to show his skill in depicting character and scenic background. Critics immediately recognized the opera's individuality, and the première... was Meyerbeer's first major success. There were further Italian productions, and the opera was staged internationally: in 1820 Weber produced his friend's work in Dresden, and in 1820 and 1821 it was also performed in Berlin, Vienna, Budapest, Brno, and Warsaw." Matthias Brzoska in Grove Music Online.. Oblong folio.

Scarce survivors. The "Tivoli" neighborhood of Santiago de Cuba was founded by early immigrants to the island, perhaps French traders or Italian merchants. According to an article in the Havana Times (10/8/2011), this quarter was founded in the 1700's, and was a lively area of markets and festivals celebrated amidst the colonial-style houses. We have been unable to ascertain if this is the Tivoli represented by these broadsides. Only 4 listings found on OCLC for the printer Antonio Maria Valdes, all done in Havana between 1820-1823.

        Principles of Political Economy considered with a view to their practical application.

      London: John Murray, 1820 - Octavo. Uncut and largely unopened in the original drab paper-backed blue boards, printed paper spine label. Housed in a brown cloth flat-back solander box. Two small areas of surface wear to lower joint, old shelf-mark or price carefully erased from foot of spine, an exceptional copy, fine and very largely unopened. 8pp. catalogue of Ogle, Duncan, and Co inserted at beginning. First edition. The book was conceived as a series of tracts rather than a comprehensive and systematic treatise, though Malthus published it to establish his own position against that of Ricardo, with whom he had been having an ongoing debate about the nature of labour, demand and profit. "In his 'Principles of Political Economy', Malthus was proposing investment in public work and private luxury as a means of increasing effective demand, and hence as a palliative to economic distress. The nation, he thought, must balance the power to produce and the will to consume" (DSB). "The Principles had only a limited impact at the time, and was severely criticized by J. R. McCulloch and 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).

      Berlin: In der Schlesingerschen Buch- und Musikhandlung [PN 1040], 1820. First Edition. Rare. Grove Music Online. OCLC nos. 27209486, 753055305. Emma von Roxburgh (or Emma di Resburgo), a "melodramma eroico" with a libretto by Gaetano Rossi, was first performed at the Teatro San Benedetto in Venice on June 26, 1819. "The Scottish local colour and romantic topoi of the settings (a castle, a knightly hall, a graveyard) gave Meyerbeer his first opportunity to show his skill in depicting character and scenic background. Critics immediately recognized the opera's individuality, and the première... was Meyerbeer's first major success. There were further Italian productions, and the opera was staged internationally: in 1820 Weber produced his friend's work in Dresden, and in 1820 and 1821 it was also performed in Berlin, Vienna, Budapest, Brno, and Warsaw." Matthias Brzoska in Grove Music Online.. Oblong folio. Dark red morocco-backed dark orange paper boards crossed-hatched in diamond pattern, spine in ruled compartments gilt with decorative ornament gilt to head and tail. 1f.

        Original hand-written and illustrated book of naval signalling

      England, 1820. In appropriate original condition, with spine renewed in modern times.. Octavo, quarter morocco, 117 pp manuscript with hand colouring to 14 pages, original boards with modern rebacking, preserved in book form box. A fine example of a rare type of naval manuscript: an officer's personally-prepared guide to the naval flag signals in use at the turn of the 18th century. The success of the British Navy during the Napoleonic Wars (1803-1815) lay in the vastly increased number of ships-of-the-line (with a capacity from 74 to 120 guns) and frigates that had not only significant gun power but also the speed to evade enemy ships. The British fleet had increased from 500 ships in 1793 to 950 by 1805. For commanders to employ the larger squadrons effectively they needed individual captains to acknowledge and obey instructions promptly.In 1799 Royal Navy captain (later rear admiral) Sir Home Riggs Popham (1762-1820) had developed a system of telegraphic signals using numbered and eventually lettered flags which could create up to 30,000 words as well as set phrases. The Telegraphic Signals or Marine Vocabulary was published in several editions between 1801 and 1812 and although the Admiralty did not formally adopt the system until 1816 it was used extensively by commanders during the Napoleonic War. The "vocabulary" used a system of three or four flag hoists which referenced words or phrases in the Signal Book. A starting flag preceded the message hoist with a finishing flag indicating the message was complete. The standardised signal messages were passed from ship to ship ensuring swift actionAlthough every officer needed a familiarity with the signalling system and its vocabulary, very few copies of the printed guides were issued for reasons of security. Some officers compiled their own vocabularies, clandestine guides usually in pocket-sized books that could be quickly hidden from either friend or foe. This example, written in the extremely neat hand of an officer, indicates the skills required of an officer during the era of British Naval triumphs. The thumb-indexed book contains 390 signal messages, hand coloured pendant signals, a general index to signals, an Index to signals from Private ships and a list of some 1100 ships-of-the-line including their gun power. Some entries appear in a later heavier (or perhaps older?) hand. The first pages show pennant positions on the masts and the nine flags of Popham's system. On following pages are the identifying pennants and vanes of ships, all coloured by hand. Although there is no specific indication of which naval officer may have compiled this volume, there may be an indication of its likely date since one of the tables, "Distinguishing Vanes", identifies each of the British ships at the 1801 Battle of Copenhagen (the vanes were important for not only the identification of the ship, but also the wind direction). It was of course at this battle that Nelson put a telescope to his blind eye in order to disregard Admiral Hyde Parker's signal to disengage. Unfortunately, Edward Riou did obey and met his end. Another captain, William Bligh of HMS Glatton survived. It is intriguing to speculate further: there were close personnel links between the sea battles of the Napoleonic Wars and the first decades of settlement in Australia. Provenance: Private collection (Sydney).

In checking the façade it appears in fact that this is the Aachen Cathedral. It is the burial place of the Holy Roman Emperor, Charlemagne (who also ordered the cathedral to be built). It is also known as Cathedral of Aix-la-Chapelle. The painting here depicts the cathedral prior to the construction of the tower that was finished by 1884.

        A voyage to the West Indies: containing various observations made during a residence in Barbadoes, and several of the Leeward Islands, with some notices and illustrations relative to the city of Paramabo, in Surinam. With engravings

      London: Richard Philips, 1820. First edition, slim 8vo, pp. [4], 106; frontispiece map, 6 aquatint plates by Neele & Son after sketches by R. Stennett; near fine, sound copy in 20th century half brown morocco by Morrell, gilt-paneled spine, t.e.g. Issued as no. six of volume II of Phillips's series of Modern Voyages and Travels. "The author was a surgeon assigned to the naval hospital in Barbados in 1807 and later to a war vessel cruising through the islands. He spent about four years in Caribbean service and became thoroughly familiar with colonial society. His book presents an interesting picture of the rushing business conducted by the slave traders in Barbados on the eve of abolition and gives accounts of encounters with the Spanish and French during the course of the Napoleonic wars. The author saw little that was attractive in West Indian life and was greatly shocked by the general prevalence of immorality" (Ragatz, Guide For The Study Of British Caribbean History 1763-1834, p. 235).
