Oersted, John (Hans) Christian
Printed by C. Baldwin for Baldwin, Cradock & Joy. First Edition. Hardcover. The first edition in English of Oersted's magnum opus (pp. 273-276), preceded by a small Latin pamphlet (Experiemnta circa effectum conflictus electici in acum magneticum) also published in 1820. This work laid the foundation for the subsequent revolution in physics with the work of Michael Faraday following soon after and later Clerk Maxwell's theory of electromagnetic radiation. Within a few months of the original Latin publication, the paper was translated into several languages. Oersted himself realized the importance of an English translation as attested to by the note at the beginning of this paper: "Translated from a printed account drawn up in Latin by the author, and transmitted by him to the Editor of the Annals of Philosophy." "...[Oersted] had predicted the existence of the electro-magnetic effect as early as 1812 ... He set out to deduce from the nature of electricity the conditions under which it was converted to magnetism, and to prove their existence by experiment ... In the winter of 1819-1820, he placed a magnetic needle parallel to a current carrying wire and saw the needle was disturbed. Resuming the experiments the summer of 1820, Oersted ascertained that a circular magnetic field surrounded current carrying wire, and that a magnetic needle brought into this field would set itself tangent to the circle. Oersted's discovery opened up a new epoch in the history of physics..." (Norman 1606). Octavo. The original marbled-paper covered boards have been expertly rebacked with a brown … [Click Below for Full Description]

TURNER, William.
London: John Murray, 1820. 3 volumes, octavo. Original buff paper-covered boards, printed paper labels to spines. Housed in a black cloth flat back solander box. Slightly rubbed, some minor chips at the heads and tails of the spines, spines mildly creased, upper joint of volume III starting, two leaves in volume I badly opened with slight marginal loss, and a few others leaves with minor splits, but overall an exceptional set. 22 plates, 6 of them hand-coloured, 5 of these being aquatints, of which 2 are folding panoramas - Zante and Smyrna - and one being a double-sided facsimile, 2 folding maps, illustrations to the text. All half-titles present. First and only edition of what Atabey describes as "this important work" and Blackmer a "very interesting work." Turner's "chatty" account includes observations on local manners and customs; an account of a meeting and conversation with Ali Pasha; and lengthy descriptions of two visits to Cyprus. Decidedly uncommon, exceedingly so in boards. Turner's father was a friend of George Canning, the book's dedicatee, who obtained a clerkship in the Foreign Office for William in 1809. In 1811 he was attached to the embassy of Robert Liston and accompanied him to Constantinople. Turner "remained in the East for five years, and during that time visited most parts of the Ottoman empire, as well as the islands and mainland of Greece. While in Asia Minor he endeavoured to emulate Leander and Lord Byron by swimming the Hellespont, and, failing in the attempt, palliated his ill success by pointing out that he had tried to swim from Asia to Euro … [Click Below for Full Description]

Henry Nugent Bell
London: Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy, 1820. First Edition. Featuring an engraved portrait frontispiece and one engraved portrait plate. Contains a fold-out genealogical table. 'Comprising a detailed account of the evidence and proceedings connected with the recent restoration of the earldom; together with the report of the Attorney-General on that occasion'. 'To which is prefixed a genealogical and biographical history of the illustrious House of Hastings, including a memoir of the present earl and his family'. Henry Nugent Bell (1792-1822) was an Irish genealogist. Bell followed the profession of a legal antiquary, and, in order to obtain a recognised status, entered himself at the Inner Temple, 17 Nov. 1818. In the same year he acquired considerable distinction by his successful advocacy of the claim of Mr. Hastings to the long-dormant earldom of Huntingdon; the estates, however, were legally invested in the Earl of Moira's family. Bell published a detailed account of the proceedings in The Huntingdon Peerage, and the narrative of his various adventures, which are given at length, displays a suspicious luxuriance of imagination not altogether in keeping with what professed to be a grave genealogical treatise.

Earl of Huntingdon is a title, which has been created several times in the Peerage of England. The title is chiefly associated with the Hastings family. "The genealogical account of the family is wholly recomposed from the most authentic sources, and the singular circumstances attending the establishment of the claim to the title . are detailed with more spirit and vivacity than truth" - Lowndes. The previous owner has updated the family tree along with some marginalia on page 343. CONDITION The binding is firm. The inner hinges have been reinforced. There is seem wear to the extremities, including bumping and rubbing. The pages are generally clean and bright with some minor spotting. There is a small closed tear on the front endpaper.

GREENWOOD, Christopher
London,: Christopher & John Greenwood, Dec. 12th 1820. London,: Christopher & John Greenwood,, Dec. 12th 1820.. from an Actual Survey made in the Years 1819 & 1820. Engraved map in fine original full-wash colour, dissected and mounted on linen, in green morocco pull-off slipcase. The maps by Christopher and John Greenwood set new standards for large-scale surveys. Although they were unsuccessful in their stated aim to map all the counties of England and Wales it is probably no coincidence that of the ones they missed, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Herefordshire, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Oxfordshire, all except Cambridgeshire were mapped by Andrew Bryant in a similar style and at the same period. From a technical point of view the Greenwoods' productions exceeded the high standards set in the previous century though without the decoration and charming title-pieces that typified large scale maps of that period. The Greenwoods started in 1817 with Lancashire and Yorkshire and by 1831 they had covered 34 counties. Their maps were masterpieces of surveying and engraving techniques, and in view of the speed at which they were completed, their accuracy is remarkable. They mark the boundaries of the counties, hundreds and parishes, churches and chapels, castles and quarries, farmhaouses and gentlemen's seats, heaths and common land, woods, parliamentary representatives and distances between towns. To the lower left f the map is an engraved view of Salisbury Cathedral. Roger, E.M., The Large Scale County Maps of the British Isles 1596-1850. Oxford 1970.

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]

ROCHE, Regina Maria.
Printed at the Minerva Press for A.K. Newman & Co. 1820 Ad. on verso of final leaf vols I, II & III; tiny hole in sig. C10 vol. II not affecting sense. Contemp. half calf, single-ruled gilt borders, spines with raised gilt bands, maroon & black morocco labels; sl. rubbing to extremities. Each vol. inscribed on titlepage, 'J.M. Parson, the gift of her uncle G. Webb', some trimming in upper margin. Blind-stamped 'Knowepark, Portsoy, Banffshire'. An attractive, clean & fresh copy of a very difficult title.Although he includes several of Roche's titles, The Munster Cottage Boy is not in Loeber; not in Sadleir or Wolff, who owned only one of her titles. Blakey p.270. Copac lists several copies, but this title is scare in commerce. A convoluted tale of love, treachery, mistaken identity, and mysterious strangers, set for the most part in the sleepy Munster coastal town of Strandstown. The heroine, Fidelia, is unaware of her father's identity, but is unwittingly taken into his protection as she attempts to flee an aggressively insistent and dishonourable suitor. The novel is set against the backdrop of massive Irish depopulation, and provides an interesting commentary on poverty in Ireland, and the tide of emigration that swept across the country towards the beginning of the 19th century.

Yates, William
Calcutta: Baptist Mission Press, 1820. First edition. 8vo, 24 x 15 cm; pp.vii, [1, blank], [v]-xxviii, 427, [1, errata]. English and Sanskrit text. Modern half calf over marbled boards; untrimmed. A very good copy. A simplified grammar of Sanskrit, modeled on the popular Greek grammars used at Eton and Westminster. For ease of use, Yates had major grammatical rules printed in larger type, the minor rules in smaller type. Yates' own experience of learning the language prompted him to produce this work. He had concluded that the existing grammars of Sanskrit by Colebrooke, Carey, Wilkins and Forster, issued between 1805 and 1810 were "too voluminous", "too abstruse", and off-putting to potential students of the language: "Probably no one ever entered on the study of this language, without sincerely wishing, that by some means or other the grammar of it could be rendered less circuitous and toilsome. A conviction that it might be made so by modeling it on a new plan, first induced the author to compose this work." William Yates arrived in India in 1815, and worked with William Carey at Serampore on translating the Bible into Bengali and other languages. When Carey split from the parent Baptist Missionary Society in England, Yates joined the Calcutta Baptist Mission, which established its own press in 1818.

[Anonymous]
[Northern India, perhaps Varanasi, 1820. [Northern India, perhaps Varanasi,, 1820. c1810-1820.] Map drawn in ink and watercolour on paper, backed on cloth. A large and beautifully decorated map providing an unusual example of Indian geographical illustration. The world is shown on a double hemispheric projection, with the eastern hemisphere centred on India. From the arrangement of borders and states (even allowing for a slightly inaccurate rendition), it must be related to an early nineteenth century map. There are marked similarities with "A New Map of the World" published by Laurie and Whittle in 1808, although there are variations in the borders within the Indian subcontinent. The pink areas within India represent East India Company territories, with the yellow area showing the remaining independent powers on the subcontinent, including the Maratha and Sikh empires. The borders suggest a date for the map sometime between the Second and Third Anglo-Maratha wars, between 1805 and 1819. The divisions of other continents into countries or empires are somewhat more fanciful and little reliance can be placed upon them in terms of dating. For example, Alaska is treated as part of Canada. Each hemisphere is surrounded by a decorative border scroll of white leaves and flowers (with touches of pink) on black that seems European in inspiration and are separated by stylised leaf designs. The upper design has the inscription in Persian "kurre-ye zamin", or "the globe", while "qotb-e shomal", "the North Pole", is inscribed above the western hemisphere on the Arctic.

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.
