John William Crawford
Printed for Thomas Boys of Ludgate Hill printed by Thomas, 1820. Condition: Near fine. Quarto size, 212 pp. (not matching pagination, see below), with 12 aquatints by Isaac Robert Cruikshank. A humerous collection of sketches exalting through parody the merits of the thrifty. The writing, although very much a parody, contains many nuggets of truths which illuminate how little the world has changed in the about 200 years since the book's publication: "Money, money alone, though it has been unaccountably neglected by authors, strangers perhaps to its very name, and still more to its practical use and management...is the mainspring of all human action, want, wish, and desire". The author goes on to state that it is the desire of "the Save-all Club" to keep "the Kind and Benevolent Reader" out of the grip of poverty through thrift. The "Rules of the Club" provide amusing proof of such virtue: Rule VI, "The smallest superfluous expense is not only a reproach to a member, but he may be fined by the Committee, for the use of the poor"; and Rule IV, "As a new coat never fails to attract animadversion in the Club, the members are requested to avoid that singularity as much as possible. If it prove that the coat is only turned, the owner shall dine that day GRATIS". Issac Robert Cruikshank (1759-1856) was a popular English caricature artist and cartoonist, and like his brother George, is known for his pioneer work in the history of comics and comic strip cartoons. He collaborated often with George, who is better known for his work with Charles Dickens. This edition was originally iss … [Click Below for Full Description]

[England]: , ca. 1820. [England], ca. 1820. This uncommonly-shaped commonplace book is the sort of novelty produced for the holiday gift market in 18th and 19th century England, where lavishly bound almanacs were an annual favorite. This little blank book was given to a young lady (our presumption, based on the contents), who pasted in small pictures cut from periodicals, including engravings of stately homes and picturesque ruins, royal and ecclesiastical seals, perfume and fashion advertisements, and watercolors of flowers. She has also attempted her own flower drawings in a few places. The religious shape of the little book would perhaps allow the owner to take it to church and use it, undetected, as a distraction from an uninspiring sermon. We have never come across an item like this in 40 years of bookselling.. 110 x 133 mm. (4 3/8 x 5 1/4"). [26] leaves. UNUSUAL BLACK STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, GILT, IN A CROSS PATÉE SHAPE with a square at center where the arms of the cross meet, covers with frame of anthemiums, floral swirls, and lancets enclosing a blind-stamped lyre in a laurel wreath, "backless" gilt spine, pale blue moiré silk endleaves, all edges gilt. With 31 illustrations pasted in and three pages with pencilled floral drawings.Slight creases where horizontal arms join the central square, extremities a little rubbed, half a dozen small patches where gilt rubbed away, minor offsetting of illustrations, but quite an excellent specimen of this fragile type of book, and, in all, a remarkable survival.This uncommonly-shaped commonplace book is the sort … [Click Below for Full Description]

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]

A treatise on adulterations of food, and culinary poisons, exhibiting the fraudulent sophistications of bread, beer, wine, spirituous liquors, tea, coffee, cream, confectionary, vinegar, mustard, pepper, cheese, olive oil, pickles, and other articles employed in domestic economy. And the methods of detecting them. The second edition. By Freidrich Christian Accum Published London : Sold by Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, Paternoster Row, 1820. 2], xxiv, 360 pages. Hardcover in papercovered boards, Spine is severely chipped with loss at the top. Front cover is attached, but barely. The outer binding is very interesting (see pics). This copy belonged to Accum's daughter - her personal bookplate is on the front pastedown. A remarkable work with a strong association. One of the first exposures of food adulteration, the sensational conclusions of which caused the author to exile himself for some time from England. This was the first systematic and "thoroughly dispassionate" survey of the growing problem of food adulteration. Among the many frauds Accum exposed were the use of alum for whitening inferior grades of flour; the use of cheap substitutes, sometimes poisonous, for malt and hops in the brewing of beer; tea that was manufactured from native English hedgerows; the poisonous pickles which owed their green color to copper; the nutty flavor in wines produced by bitter almonds, the rind of Gloucester cheese colored with vermillion and red lead; and the pepper adulterated with the sweepings of the warehouse floors. His book attracted immediate public attention. The first … [Click Below for Full Description]

His fame was so universal that both Blazac and Stendhal mentioned him in their novels; it persists to the present day. Among his clientele he also counted English and Russian collectors. Although he did not invent the style 'a la cathedrale', as is often claimed on his behalf (the London binder Whitaker was its originator), he brought it to perfection, and became its principal practitioner in France."

Overall in VERY GOOD PLUS condition. A good gift. Elisha Kent Kane (28 February 1820 ? 16 February 1857) was a medical officer in the United States Navy during the first half of the 19th century. He was a member of two Arctic expeditions to rescue the explorer Sir John Franklin. Born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Kane was the son of John Kintzing Kane, a U.S. district judge, and Jane Duval Leiper. His brother was attorney, diplomat, abolitionist, and American Civil War cavalry general Thomas L. Kane. Kane graduated from the University of Pennsylvania Medical School in 1842. On 14 September 1843, he became Assistant Surgeon in the Navy. He served in the China Commercial Treaty mission under Caleb Cushing, in the Africa Squadron, and in the Marines during the Mexican-American War. Kane became senior medical officer of the unsuccessful Arctic expedition searching for explorer Sir John Franklin in 1850 and 1851. Kane organized and headed a second rescue expedition which sailed from New York 31 May 1853, and wintered in Rensselaer Bay. Though suffering from scurvy, and at times near death, he resolutely pushed on and chartered the coasts of Smith Sound (later called Kane Basin) and penetrated farther north than any other explorer had done up to that time … [Click Below for Full Description]

More critically, Britannica states, "All the Dr. Syntax books satirize the many 18th- and early 19th-century writers whose "Tours," "Travels," and "Journeys" were vehicles for sententious moralizing, uninspired raptures, and sentimental accounts of amorous adventures." The set is finely bound in full red-pebbled morocco, five-banded spine with gilt lettering including "box" design on boards and tooled inner edges around red/gold/black/pink marbled endpapers; top edge gilt. Original cover/spine bound in rear of books. V. I - Ninth ed., gutter splitting inside front page, cover spine hinges show worn, back cover has mark in upper left-hand corner. V.

Washington Irving
The first book edition of a milestone of American Literature. Two volumes - including a rare copy of Volume 1 from the earliest stock. An American classic that introduced iconic stories like Rip Van Winkle and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. The first four American installments were collected into a single volume and self-published by Irving in London, using John Miller's Burlington Arcade imprint, on February 16, 1820. Following Miller's bankruptcy soon thereafter, the unsold sheets, with a new title page (cancel leaf [A]2), were issued as a "second edition" by John Murray, along with this first printing of Volume 2. Blind stamped diamond design on contemporary leather boards, marbled edges and matching endpapers, rebacked in period style. Contemporary bookplate on front pastedown of Volume I, both half-titles with ink signature dated 1820. Internally quite clean with some scattered foxing. Very Good. OCLC lists just one copy with this Miller imprint. '[Irving's] contribution, delivered throughout a literary life that spanned the first half of the 19th century was that of providing a body of literature with which Americans could identify. He was trying to find out what it meant to be an American at a time when there were no easy answers. Before Washington Irving published The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent., containing Rip van Winkle and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, together with accounts of life in England, opinion of American literary effort could be summed up in the words of an anonymous English critic writing in 1818 who said, "The Americans have no national literat … [Click Below for Full Description]

PLANCHE, James Robinson: (POLIDORI, John William). "The Vampire" Or, The Bride of The Isles. FIRST TIME. Theatre Royal, English Opera House, Strand. This Evening, Monday, August 7th, 1820. London, 1820. THE TRUE FIRST APPEARANCE OF "THE VAMPIRE" ON THE ENGLISH STAGE. Broadside, 12-7/8" x 8-1/2", edges slightly rumpled but apparently untrimed, closed tear to foredge with an old repair, left side of paper with stab holes presumably bound up at one time, mild toning but overall VERY GOOD. As stated on the playbill "This piece is founded on the various traditions concerning THE VAMPIRES, which assert that they are Spirits, depraved of all Hope of Futurity, by the crimes committed in their mortal state - but, that they are permitted to roam the Earth, in whatever forms they please, with supernatural powers of Fascination - and, that they cannot be destroyed, so long as they sustain their dreadful existence, by imbibing the blood of female victims, whom they are first compelled to marry." Opening night reviews were enthusiastic and "was honored with unusually long continued applause". An interesting link between "The Vampire" and "Frankenstein" is that Peter Thomas Cooke who played the title role in The Vampyre at the Theatre Royale in 1820, was also the first actor to play the Frankenstein Monster in the London staging of Presumption. In fact, in 1826 a theatre-goer in London could take in a double bill and be treated to both monsters. Planche's play "The Vampire" was an adaptation of John Polidori's story "The Vampyre" - or, rather, a translation/adaptation of a French play bas … [Click Below for Full Description]

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. 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 misplaced pages … [Click Below for Full Description]

Sir Walter Scott
Edinburgh; London: Arch. Constable and Co. Twelve Volumes, complete. Rebound with the original boards, except Volume X. A letter concerning this set of Walter Scott, from Henry Babington Smith, dated May 1923, is contained herewith. There is an ink inscription on the front blank of Volume 1 from Mary Babington, dated 1820. With Henry Prior's bookseller label on the front pastedown of Volumes I-IX, and XI-XII. Volume X is bound by Maltbys of Oxford. Sir Walter Scott, 1st Baronet, 1771 -1832, was a prolific Scottish historical novelist and poet popular throughout Europe during his time and is considered by some as responsible for inventing the modern historical novel. After Scott had founded a printing press, his poetry, beginning with The Lay of the Last Minstrel brought him fame. He published a number of other poems over the next ten years, including the popular The Lady of the Lake. Whilst Scott is considerably more popular as an author, his poetry is not to be overlooked. Sir Henry Babington Smith GBE CH KCB CSI, 1863 - 1923, was a senior British civil servant. He was educated at Eton College and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he read classics. Amongst his numerous positions, Babington Smith became principal private secretary to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, private secretary to Lord Elgin on his appointment as Viceroy of India, and Treasury representative in the South African War. In 1900 he became British representative on the Council of Administration of the Ottoman Public Debt, becoming its chairman in 1901.

PRÊTRE, Jean Gabriel.
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. A beautiful watercolour of three sunbirds.
