Text in two columns below headline and one single-column paragraph, untrimmed edges. Moderate soiling, vertical and horizontal fold lines. ,250. * A campaign document, this broadside raises questions about the legal ethics of John W. Taylor, who represented Saratoga County in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1813-1833. It involves a fee Kinyon paid Taylor for legal services regarding a claim for military bounty land. Afterwards Kinyon was approached by one Thaddeus Jewitt who claimed to be investigating high fees charged for such services. Kinyon was persuaded to make an affidavit of the facts in his case claiming he was overcharged. This document was subsequently published in the Saratoga Sentinel. Taylor's claim is corroborated by the certificate of Judge James Ford, who rendered assistance in securing Taylor's services. Taylor was served as the speaker of House of Representatives in 1820-1821 and 1825-1827. He was defeated for re-election as Speaker both times, due in part to his outspoken opposition to slavery. While the South never forgave the part he played in the Missouri controversy, the chief opposition … [Click Below for Full Description]

The present work critiques the official coroner's reports following the assassination. The author describes himself as "Ancien Chirurgien de l'Hotel-Dieu, membre des ci-devant colleges et academie royale de Chirurgie, ancien professeur particulier d'accouchemens et membre eligible du college electoral du departement." OCLC locates 2 copies, both in France. Not in the Harvard Law Catalogue.

London: Printed For The Author, By W.Bulmer And W.Nicol, Shakspeare Press, And Sold By Payne And Foss, Longman, Hurst And Co..., 1821. 3 vols., royal 8vo. pp. 2 p.l., xxv, [3 leaves], 462, lxxix, [1] errata; 2 p.l., 555; 2 p.l., 622, lxii. without half-titles. 83 plates (incl. portraits; 1 color, 2 sepia, & 5 double-page) & 63 smaller illus. in the text, some on India paper, mounted. Early half dark green morocco, marbled boards, gilt-lettered backstrips, a tall untrimmed set with usual occasional foxing or spotting. Bookplates of James Whatman and Charles Sebag-Montefiore. § First edition, regular paper issue. One of a very few books by Dibdin that went into a second edition. "The collation is very irregular by reason of the fact that all illustrations in the text, being printed on India paper pasted-in, are on separately inserted leaves ... This Voyage Pittoresque is lavishly illustrated, mainly with copperplates after drawings by G.R. Lewis and others. Dibdin says he spent over 7000 pounds on the book, being the first patron to pay 100 guineas for a plate ... It has been unkindly said of this book that it would have been better without any text. However, it does contain a modicum of bibliographical information that is still useful if used with due caution" (Jackson). Lowndes notes that it "contains much useful and curious information" on the libraries and private collections of Europe. The second edition of 1829 is abridged and omits all but 5 of the original plates. Jackson 48; Lowndes I, 641; Windle & Pippin A38a.

Las de s'y exhiber il part avec sa femme et son serviteur irlandais s'installer en Egypte.

Amm. William PAGET
1821. Coppia di vedute in un foglio, raffiguranti il porto della città. Al verso altra coppia di vedute di minore interesse. Opera tratta dal taccuino da viaggio dell'ammiraglio inglese William Paget che, come si evince dall'annotazione di pugno dell'autore, egli nomina come "Sketches in the South of France, Coast of Italy, Rome, Elba and Lombardy, Lake of Como and Maggiore in the years 1819-20-21". Il gruppo di lavori in nostro possesso riguarda la costa ligure, parte della Toscana con particolare attenzione all'isola d'Elba, e un nutrito gruppo di opere sui laghi lombardi. La qualità delle opere risulta varia e contrastata, particolarmente incentrata sulla realizzazione del paesaggio naturistico, raramente arricchito da figure umane. La mano del pittore dilettante è chiara, tuttavia i lavori si fanno apprezzare per il loro aspetto decorativo, per la loro gradevolezza di fondo e soprattutto per l'interesse iconografico dei luoghi raffigurati. La tecnica usata è quella del veloce disegno a matita successivamente colorato con l'uso dell'acquarello. Il supporto usato è, prevalentemente, una carta vergata spessa, ovviamente inglese, tipica del primo periodo dell'800. I differenti formati delle opere lasciano presupporre che si tratti di diversi taccuini da viaggio, poi amalgamati dalla storia nel corso dei due secoli trascorsi. Trattandosi di un album da disegno, quasi tutte le opere presentano al verso altri lavori.

James Caulfield
London: printed for Hurst, Robinson, and Company, 1821. This large ( 13" x 9") book is clean, tight and square. It has a pencil name on a blank, front end paper; otherwise it is unmarked. It has been professionally repaired at the hinges with a new, heavy brown free end paper being inserted, recreating the hinge, but ending at the marbled paste downs, making the book extremely solid. The original three-quarter binding is very good. the brown leather on the spine is chipped at the ends (although the underlying cloth is still in place), there is a small chip just below the gold titles on the spine and the brown leather on the corners is a bit chipped such that they are somewhat rounded. The boards are marbled and rubbed, surface and edges. Internally, it is in just wonderful condition, the 48 black & white portraits are all marvelously bright and clean as is all the text. No author is stated (Google books and WorldCat attribute it to Caulfield. It has 261 pages with minimal mild foxing and marbled edges and an errata sheet at the rear. [Attributes: First Edition]

LONDON] Sidney HALL (engraver
London: M.J. Godwin & Co., 1821. Hand-colored engraved map by Sidney Hall, dissected into 21 sections and mounted on linen, overall 30 5/8 x 20 7/8 inches, folding to 7 x 4 3/8 inches. In original publisher's board slipcase, pink printed title label on front. Some pale offsetting. Item #400373 This large and handsome map spans the entire city of London and its environs, drawn, as its cover label reports, from a new survey, "including the actual and intended Improvements." At furthest left are Hyde and Regents Parks, and at furthest left is Greenwich Park. The map shows as far north as Islington and Hackney and as far south as Deptford and Greenwich. The Thames is depicted horizontally across the map, and the hand-coloring demarcates various areas and features, such as central London defined by a red border, the major streets done in pink, the parks and water in green. Yellow is reserved only for Regent Street. Five bridges are shown, from west to east: Vauxhall, Westminster, Waterloo, Blackfriars, and London. Clearly shown from top left and wandering southeast to the Thames is Regent's Canal, the large project that had reached completion just one year before this map's publication. Printed at bottom is an alphabetical list of streets with a key to their positions on the map. With contemporary provenance, signed by "M. Maury London Sept. 1821" on verso of linen and title label.

The expedition set sail from Kronstadt on 30 July 1815, before circling South America, making a brief stop at Kamchatka on Russia's eastern coast, and exploring what is now Kotzebue Sound in Alaska. During this stretch of the voyage the Rurik made two visits to Hawaii and the Hawaiian portion of the text is "extensive with important observations on life and customs during the reign of Kamehameha I" (ibid.).

Luigi ROSSINI (Ravenna 1790 - Roma 1875)
1821. La serie delle vedute di Antichità Romane, composta di 101 tavole, viene realizzata con il ricavato della e vendita dei rami della Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divise in 40 vedute edita nel 1817. Con quest'opera, per il numero delle tavole e per il formato prescelto, di grandi dimensioni, l'incisore vuole affermarsi come figura di primo piano nel mondo artistico romano. In quest'opera Rossini si cimenta in un diretto confronto con il suo predecessore G. B. Piranesi che costituisce un punto di riferimento per un incisore di vedute antiche, per quanto riguarda l'originalità e l'ampiezza della riproduzione. Il Rossini, oltre a sottolineare la sua influenza nella scelta del titolo e di alcune didascalie, usa frequentemente le medesime inquadrature e identici punti di vista del maestro veneziano. Altro elemento riconducibile a Piranesi è l'uso della luce e dei forti contrasti chiaroscurali. In queste tavole raggiunge una certa padronanza del mezzo tecnico che gli permette di cimentarsi in inquadrature più complesse nelle quali si nota un'organizzazione spaziale molto articolata. Nelle tavole è frequente il ricorso al taglio diagonale della veduta, consentendogli una più ampia possibilità di graduare i chiaroscuri in profondità. Tuttavia essendo l'opera composta da molte tavole presenta una certa discontinuità ed è possibile riscontrare in alcune di esse qualche incertezza nella impostazione prospettica ed alcune durezze nel segno. Rimanendo fedele alla tradizione corrente, la scelta dei soggetti … [Click Below for Full Description]

Georg Christoph Franz Fembo (1781 in Vohenstrauß ; †11.9.1848 in Nürnberg)
1821. Rara carta d'Italia e della parte occidentale della penisola balcanica - l'antica Illiria - disegnata da Conrad Mannert, incisa da Solbrig, ed edita da Christoph Fembo. Georg Christoph Franz Fembo acquistò diverse attività editoriali, compresa la casa editrice di Homann di Norimberga, attraverso gli eredi, nel 1813. Non fu solo editore e commerciante delle mappe che aveva acquisito, ma ne ordinò anche di nuove e migliorate, ed egli stesso ne disegnò di nuove. Suo figlio Christoph Melchior era meno ambizioso di suo padre, e le attività editoriali della casa terminarono definitivamente nel 1852. Tutte le mappe in formato in-folio firmate da Fembo, non essendo parte di una raccolta sistematica, sono da considerarsi molto rare. Incisione su rame, colori tipografici, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rare map of the Italy and the of the western part of the Balkan peninsula - the ancient Illyria - designed by Conrad Mannert, engraved by Solbrig, and published by Christoph Fembo. Georg Christoph Franz Fembo bought the publishing house of Homann Heirs of Nuremberg in 1813. He was not only a publisher and dealer in the maps he had acquired, but he ordered improved or new maps from scientists as well, and he even drew new maps himself. His son Christoph Melchior was less ambitious than his father, and the publishing activities of the house ended finally in 1852. All of Fembo's folio-sized maps are rare. Copperplate, with fine original colouring, very god condition.

Westall after Beechey. (8),XXIX,310,CLXXIX pp.First edition published the same year. - The first (and most succesful) of Parry's four voyages under his own command. It was one of the most important voyages in the history of Arctic exploration. By August 1, 1819, Sir William Edward Parry (1790-1855) had managed to sail westward completely through Lancaster Sound, establishing that it was actually a strait. He then made the European discovery of Barrow Street, which he named after Sir John Barrow. Continuing westward, he reached the south coast of a large island he named Melville Island after Lord Melville. Parry and his men had sailed west of the 110th meridian of longitude, half the distance of the Northwest Passage, and thereby won a prize of £ 5.000, which Parliament had offered as an incentive for the discovery of the Northwest Passage. - (Some spotting and foxing as usual). - A fine copy of a cornerstone book of Arctic Exploration.Arctic Bibl. 13145; Hill 1311; Sabin 58860; TPL 1205; Stam, Books on ice, p.24; Howgego II, p.465.

1821. "The Idea that an Army shall be entitled to receive whatever may be called for, is monstrous, and is what the Resources of no Nation can support."Colonel Wadsworth provides a lengthy critique of a Senate bill to combine the Ordnance and Artillery departments. He insists on the need to maintain uniformity in arms manufacture and the necessity to control the flow of supplies. Many of his arguments about the tendency to waste in military expenditures resonate with modern critiques.

Westall, William
London: Rodwell & Martin. C. Hullmandel, printer., 1821-1822. Half Calf. Marbled paper pastedown on boards. . Very Good. Folio. 42.5 by 31.5 cm. 25 hand-colored views, all depicting a calm, lovely, bucolic riverfront, all populated by a few people in Regency dress, both polite and rustic, to lend scale and interest. Coloring is generally of a soft palette, creating an appealing dreamy haziness to the panoramas. Abbey Scenery 434. A slightly complicated bibliographic accounting for this work. It is complete in itself, other than our copy is without a title. Shortly afterward ten plates were added to make 35 views. We would note that generally copies encountered of this work are without coloring, although Abbey's copy of 35 views is described in a note as colored lithographs. Armorial bookplate of John Spicer, Esher Place. Condition: moderate wear to the cover, with a few abrasions or rubbed areas, and typical edgewear. Scattered, mostly light, foxing. A few repaired closed tears in the margins of the plates.

Georg Christoph Franz Fembo
Norimberga, 1821. Rara carta d'Italia e della parte occidentale della penisola balcanica - l'antica Illiria - disegnata da Conrad Mannert, incisa da Solbrig, ed edita da Christoph Fembo. Georg Christoph Franz Fembo acquistò diverse attività editoriali, compresa la casa editrice di Homann di Norimberga, attraverso gli eredi, nel 1813. Non fu solo editore e commerciante delle mappe che aveva acquisito, ma ne ordinò anche di nuove e migliorate, ed egli stesso ne disegnò di nuove. Suo figlio Christoph Melchior era meno ambizioso di suo padre, e le attività editoriali della casa terminarono definitivamente nel 1852. Tutte le mappe in formato in-folio firmate da Fembo, non essendo parte di una raccolta sistematica, sono da considerarsi molto rare. Incisione su rame, colori tipografici, in ottimo stato di conservazione. Rare map of the Italy and the of the western part of the Balkan peninsula - the ancient Illyria - designed by Conrad Mannert, engraved by Solbrig, and published by Christoph Fembo. Georg Christoph Franz Fembo bought the publishing house of Homann Heirs of Nuremberg in 1813. He was not only a publisher and dealer in the maps he had acquired, but he ordered improved or new maps from scientists as well, and he even drew new maps himself. His son Christoph Melchior was less ambitious than his father, and the publishing activities of the house ended finally in 1852. All of Fembo’s folio-sized maps are rare. Copperplate, with fine original colouring, very god condition. 535 625mm

DECIUS WADSWORTH
1821. "The Idea that an Army shall be entitled to receive whatever may be called for, is monstrous, and is what the Resources of no Nation can support."Colonel Wadsworth provides a lengthy critique of a Senate bill to combine the Ordnance and Artillery departments. He insists on the need to maintain uniformity in arms manufacture and the necessity to control the flow of supplies. Many of his arguments about the tendency to waste in military expenditures resonate with modern critiques.DECIUS WADSWORTH.Autograph Document Signed, critique of Senate bill to combine Ordnance and Artillery departments, ca. 1821. 7 pp., 8½ x 12½ in.[with] DECIUS WADSWORTH, Autograph Document Signed, proposal regarding Ordnance Department, ca. 1821. 3 pp., 8 x 10 in. #23067.04 [with] [JAMES MADISON].

Edward Hyde of Clarendon; William Warburton
Oxford, Clarendon Press, 1821. [Fine Binding; Royal armorial Bookplate of Prince George of Cambridge (1819-1904)] 11 volume set. Octavo. Includes the 3 volume set of The Life of Edward Earl of Clarendon, 1826. Uniformally bound on 3/4 crimson moroccan leather over marble boards. All edges gilt. Binding in good condition, with the exception of the rear board detached from the first volume of Clarendon's life. Pages clean, unmarked. Title has Prince George's royal stamp. His Royal Highness, Prince George of Cambridge (1819-1904) was the grandson of King George III. He commanded the British army from 1856 to 1895. The History of the Rebellion and Civil Wars in England is a work begun in exile during the late 1640s and was revised and completed in renewed exile after Clarendon's fall from royal favor in 1667. Clarendon was a close adviser to two kings, and his intimacy with many of the key events is unrivaled. Though his narrative is inevitably partisan, the ambitious range of his analysis and his mastery of character portraiture make the History an extraordinary accomplishment. Almost fifty years later, Clarendon's great-grandson presented his papers and manuscripts to Oxford University on the understanding that all profits from the copyright of the History were to be used to finance buildings for the University press. This is an oversized or heavy book that requires additional postage for international delivery outside of Canada and the US. Very Good. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
