Mir, Mir Mohammed Taqi
London: printed for the editor, by W. Bulmer and W. Nicol, 1820. First edition. 8vo, 26 x 17 cm; pp.[vi], 11, [2, blanks], 11-[1], [ii, Urdu title]. Text in Urdu and romanized Urdu. Modern half calf over modern boards; untrimmed and unopened; initial and final leaves a little soiled. A single poem by Mir, the leading Urdu poet of the eighteenth century, printed in romanized and nasta'liq script, both to introduce readers to Urdu poetry and to provide a specimen text for students of Urdu: "The following musnuwee is from the pen of Meer Tuqee, a modern poet of considerable celebrity in Hindoostan. It was named, I believe, by the author Shooulue ishq, or the Flame of Love, and as far as I can learn has never before appeared in print." The only earlier publication of Mir's poetry is the Hindoostanee Press Kooliyat Meer Tuqi (Calcutta, 1811), which appears not to have contained the present poem. Smyth sought to allay any fears the poem's title might arouse: "From the name it might be supposed to be an improper book to put into the hands of young persons: but I can assure the most scrupulous on this head, that it does not contain either a thought or a word which could give offence to the most delicate mind, and being an amusing story written in good classical Hindoostanee, is well calculated for the use of students in that language." William Carmichael Smyth was a major in the Bengal Engineers and later Governor of the East India Company's Military Seminary at Addiscombe, 1822-24. His major work was an Urdu grammar, The Hindoostanee interpreter (London, 1824). BL, BnF, Muni … [Click Below for Full Description]

[ Marcet, Jane ]
London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, 1820 Second edition, revised. The first edition was published in 1819. Contemporary half calf over mottled boards. Octavo. With twenty-three plates. Hinges cracked, but holding. Binding extremities lightly worn and rubbed. Leaves somewhat foxed and browned, very minor dampstaining to upper margins of a few gatherings, trivial offsetting from plates. Plates closely shaved at fore-edge, but with no loss. 2" closed tear to terminal blank. Contemporary ink signature to upper front flyleaf. A very good copy. Jane Haldimand Marcet (1769-1858) was the wife of physician Alexander Marcet (1770-1822), and a friend of Maria Edgeworth. At their home, she and her husband entertained some of the most distinguished scientists and thinkers of their time. She wrote Conversations on Chemistry, Intended More Especially for the Female Sex, one of the first elementary science textbooks. It was written after Marcet attended the lectures of Sir Humphry Davy at the Royal Institution. This was followed by Conversations on Political Economy (1816). As a result of her scientific and political publications, Marcet is recognized as an important figure in the history of women's education. Her Conversations books are considered the "early nineteenth century's best known introductory science texts for women and young persons" (The Feminist Companion to Literature in English, p. 713). Conversations of Natural Philosophy follows the format of Conversations in Chemistry and Conversations on Political Economy, in which characters Mrs. B and her char … [Click Below for Full Description]

Thouin, Gabriel. (1747-1829)
Second edition of an important and influential work on garden-design & landscape architecture (the first ed. was publ. in 1820). The author Gabriel Thouin (1747-1829) was a French landscape gardener who developed a system of classification of gardens by type and by design. The four main categories are botanical (or pharmaceutical) gardens, fruit gardens, vegetable gardens & pleasure gardens. The beautiful lithographed plates depict a variety of designs (i.a. for Chinese & English gardens which were in vogue at the time) surrounded by views of various garden-buildings (i.a. Chinese pavillions, classical ruins and follies). ¶ Apart from a few minor imperfections (56 plates are neatly numbered in ink in an old hand, binding sl. rubbed/worn along extremities) in very good conditionParis by L'Imprimerie de L:ebegue. 1823.Folio.56pp text. and 57 lithogr.plts.

Dolby's Parliamentary Register
London: T Dolby, 1820. In his attempt to deprive his estranged wife of her title, the newly crowned George IV unwittingly turned her into a focus for anti-government and anti-monachical sentiment. The trial of the presumptive Queen before the House of Lords became the arena in which this political battle was fought. Among other things, the trial led to the birth of so-called 'tabloid' coverage of the monarchy, and as such was a watershed moment for the relationship between the monarchy and an increasingly powerful free British press. For example, it was alleged that Caroline employed exotic male dancers: and the dance was even demonstrated in court. In response, Caroline's attorney, Lord Brougham, threatened to reveal details of the King's private life that he felt would damage the monarchy. The first volume contains the prosecution, the second the defence. This parliamentary report was originally supressed, resulting in copies of this first issue being scarce. The pagination carries from the Dolby Parliamentary Register. The relevant sections have essentially been excised and bound into a discrete work. Volume two is lacking a title page, and is missing pages 1638-1671, with pages 827-858 from volume one apparently bound in instead by mistake. While the pagination is occasionally irregular, this appears to be the only loss. CONDITION In half calf with marbled boards. Externally sound, with some rubbing to the edges and spines. Internally, firmly bound. There is some light marking to the boards. Internally a little age toned with some light foxing here and there. The mispla … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris, F. G. Levrault, (1820)-1838-(1839). 5 volumes. Royal-folio (545 x 354mm). With 600 hand-coloured engraved plates, all with unnumbered accompanying text leaves. Contemporary uniform half morocco over marbled boards, spines with five gilt-stippled raised bands, compartments with gilt ornamental lines and title, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. The rare Large-Paper "De Luxe" edition. A special copy with an original watercolour for plate 317 by Prêtre (see note end of description). A massive and amazingly illustrated contribution to ornithology by the greatest Dutch ornithologist, Coenraad Jacob Temminck (1778-1858), with some help by one of Europe's foremost private collectors of birds, the botanist, ornithologist, politician and heritage guard, Baron Guillaume Michel Jérôme Meiffren Laugier (1772-1843). This may be regarded as Temminck's magnum opus in size, in scope and in beauty. The fine illustrations are by the best natural history artists of the period, Jean Gabriel Prêtre (1768-1849) and Nicolas Huet le Jeune (1770-1830). Especially the larger illustrations by Prêtre are among the best natural history illustrations ever made. The plates have about 800 figures of birds representing 661 species./The present copy is almost twice as large as the usual 4to.-edition, the colouring being much better. Large-Paper copies of the present work seem to be much rarer than the Large-Paper edition of Buffon's 'Planches Enluminées'./The work is a supplement, as stated on the title to Buffon's magnum opus, 'Planches Enluminées'.

Dolby's Parliamentary Register
London: T Dolby, 1820. In his attempt to deprive his estranged wife of her title, the newly crowned George IV unwittingly turned her into a focus for anti-government and anti-monachical sentiment. The trial of the presumptive Queen before the House of Lords became the arena in which this political battle was fought. Among other things, the trial led to the birth of so-called 'tabloid' coverage of the monarchy, and as such was a watershed moment for the relationship between the monarchy and an increasingly powerful free British press. For example, it was alleged that Caroline employed exotic male dancers: and the dance was even demonstrated in court. In response, Caroline's attorney, Lord Brougham, threatened to reveal details of the King's private life that he felt would damage the monarchy. The first volume contains the prosecution, the second the defence. This parliamentary report was originally supressed, resulting in copies of this first issue being scarce. The pagination carries from the Dolby Parliamentary Register. The relevant sections have essentially been excised and bound into a discrete work. Volume two is lacking a title page, and is missing pages 1638-1671, with pages 827-858 from volume one apparently bound in instead by mistake. While the pagination is occasionally irregular, this appears to be the only loss. CONDITION In half calf with marbled boards. Externally sound, with some rubbing to the edges and spines. Internally, firmly bound. There is some light marking to the boards. Internally a little age toned with some light foxing here and there. The mispla … [Click Below for Full Description]

Cruikshank, Isaac Robert (1789-1856)
London: Ca. 1820. A meticulous rendering of an old woman, seated, smoking, among her pets, and surrounded by a circular frieze of 30 heads of highly diverse individuals (plus a full-length Cupid): young lovers, soldier, miser, judge, mortician, farmer, sailor, squire, singing lady, scold, dandy, toper, etc., as well as several attractive young women. There is also a "temple of love", and a lovers' maze. In the corners are elaborate curtains, a decorated confection, decanters of spirits and a display of fruits. Across the top is the legend, lightly sketched in pencil, CAFE BURNS CHARACTERS. 1 vols. Image 7 x 7-3/4 inches, matted and framed to 11-3/4 x 12-1/2 inches overall. A Superb Social Satire by Robert Cruikshank, Ca. 1820. Isaac Robert Cruikshank, son of Isaac and elder brother of the more famous George, was a caricaturist, illustrator and (particularly apropos of the picture offered here) portrait miniaturist. His first caricatures appeared around 1810 and were often produced in conjunction with his brother Geroge, with whom he shared a studio. Notes Bryant and Heneage, "Of his [Robert's] social satires, those he made of the dandies and the fashion for 'hobby horses' in the early 1820s are among the most attractive." We are pleased to be able to offer a fine example of this genre. Bryant & Heneage, Dictionary of British Cartoonists and Caricaturists, p. 52. Some light soiling, mostly marginal, otherwise fine, and attractive.

Shakespear, John
London: printed for the author by Cox and Baylis, 1820. Second edition. 4to, 27 x 22 cm; pp.viii, 884, [4]. With Urdu and Devanagari characters. A very good copy bound in slightly later half calf over marbled boards; all edges speckled; a bit rubbed, edges worn; later endpapers. Substantially revised and the first edition to contain Shakespear's own work; the 1817 first edition had, by his own admission, drawn almost entirely on Taylor's Urdu dictionary (Calcutta, 1808). Despite this the first edition, perhaps owing to Shakespear's prominence as a professor, had been a commercial success, employed at the East India Company's colleges at Haileybury and Addiscombe. Shakespear emphasizes the original components of his new edition, noting the thousands of new Urdu words he has added and the deletion of the previous edition's, to save space and reduce the cost of the book.

Dolby's Parliamentary Register
London: T Dolby, 1820. In his attempt to deprive his estranged wife of her title, the newly crowned George IV unwittingly turned her into a focus for anti-government and anti-monachical sentiment. The trial of the presumptive Queen before the House of Lords became the arena in which this political battle was fought. Among other things, the trial led to the birth of so-called 'tabloid' coverage of the monarchy, and as such was a watershed moment for the relationship between the monarchy and an increasingly powerful free British press. For example, it was alleged that Caroline employed exotic male dancers: and the dance was even demonstrated in court. In response, Caroline's attorney, Lord Brougham, threatened to reveal details of the King's private life that he felt would damage the monarchy. The first volume contains the prosecution, the second the defence. This parliamentary report was originally supressed, resulting in copies of this first issue being scarce. The pagination carries from the Dolby Parliamentary Register. The relevant sections have essentially been excised and bound into a discrete work. Volume two is lacking a title page, and is missing pages 1638-1671, with pages 827-858 from volume one apparently bound in instead by mistake. While the pagination is occasionally irregular, this appears to be the only loss. CONDITION In half calf with marbled boards. Externally sound, with some rubbing to the edges and spines. Internally, firmly bound. There is some light marking to the boards. Internally a little age toned with some light foxing here and there. The mispla … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris: Chez Boieldieu jeune [PN 988], [ca. 1820]. Folio. Half dark red morocco with marbled boards, decorative bands gilt on spine in compartments gilt, titling gilt. 1f. (title), [1] (cast list and table of contents), 2-235, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. With "chez Hanry Editeur de Musique Rue neuve des Petits Champs No. 17." overpaste to lower margin of title. Binding slightly worn, rubbed, and bumped. Minor offsetting; very light staining or creasing to upper blank margins of some leaves; small stab hole to upper inner margins; slight loss to edges of pp. 11-12, not affecting music. A very good copy overall. First French Edition (with supplement for the added recitative and cavatina to pp. 225-235). Gossett p. 312. OCLC no. 19132048. Otello, to a libretto by Francesco Berio di Salsa after William Shakespeare's play, was first performed in Naples at the Teatro del Fondo on December 4, 1816. "Rossini's choice of Shakespeare's Othello, complete with its tragic denouement, was a bold and original one at the time... In the 19th century the opera's huge popularity owed much to the final act. Meyerbeer wrote: 'The third act of Otello established its reputation so firmly that a thousand errors could not shake it. This third act is really godlike, and what is so extraordinary is that its beauties are quite un-Rossini-like. First-rate declamation, continuously impassioned recitative, mysterious accompaniments full of local colour, and, in particular, the style of the old romances brought to highest perfection'." Richard Osborne in Grove Music Online.
