        The Pastorals of Virgil.

      - London: 1821. 2 vols., small 8vo, xii (-vii/viii), 12, xxiv (-i/iv), 214 pp; [I], [215]-592 pp. With an engraved frontispiece to each volume, and 230 illustrations including 17 woodcuts and 6 engraved plates by Blake, and four other designs by Blake engraved by others. Original full rose sheep, backstrips lettered in gilt, slight wear to joints and one headcap repaired. A very fine set internally perfect. Presentation copy inscribed by Thornton to his daughter. A very fine copy of a scarce work in any condition as it was issued for use in schools; the impressions of the woodcuts in this copy are the richest I have ever seen. Blake contributed 17 woodcuts to this volume (as well as 10 other plates, of which he engraved six) which were not well received; nor were they well treated by the publisher who cut down the blocks and printed them poorly. Only a few proofs before they were trimed are now extant. These blocks have remained amongst the most influential woodcuts in the history of British art and their influence can be seen from Calvert and Palmer all the way up to the present day. The blocks were saved by Linnell and were printed not long after Blake's death as separate impressions (perhaps by Calvert), and again in 1977 as a set by Iain Bain. Any impressions are now very hard to find. For a full discussion of this wonderful book, see Essick's masterly monograph A Troubled Paradise. (San Francisco: John Windle, 1999). Bentley, Blake Books, 504. Bindman 602-18. Easson and Essick I, X. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

("nuit de mardi") - 8vo. 3 1/2 pp. To [Ernest] Feydeau, with 4 lines of verse, Characteristically exuberant nocturnal note by Flaubert to his close friend Ernest Feydeau (1821-1873). He begins, in translation: „I do not know who wrote 'I would like to throw the world on its face!' - a desire which I share. It sounds Biblical? But it is maybe from Shakespeare?" He continues with some literary gossip ("quel bouquin emmerdant!") and closes with a poetic fragment that he found in his papers which Flaubert stipulates "Please note: should be shouted:"Let me celebrate youWomen, treasures of love that the AlmightyDeigned to send us on a merciful dayTo relieve our boredom!"

        Bolling's Dam, Petersburgh, Virginia

      Philadelphia: published by M. Carey & Son, 1821. Aquatint by Hill after Shaw, coloured by hand. Laid on archival mat board, 3 inch repaired tear in lower margin, not touching the image. In fine French washline mat. A rare example of a print from an extremely rare work that is now considered to be a 'milestone in American printmaking ... a foundation book for American color-plate publication, being the first publication in the United States of larger colored landscapes essentially scenic in effect" (Koke). This sweeping image of Bolling's Dam, Petersburgh, Virginia is from a suite of twenty plates published under the general title 'Picturesque Views of American Scenery'. The original intention had been to publish 36 plates in six parts but the work was abandoned after only four parts had appeared (published primarily by Matthew Carey & Son). Thomas Ash acquired the rights to the set and republished them in 1835. Any examples from either edition are now rare. Joshua Shaw, a British-born landscape artist of note, was inspired by the magificence of the American landscape ("in no other quarter of the globe are the majesty and loveliness of nature more strikingly conspicuous than in America."). Shaw set out to popularise the picturesque in America. His beautiful images were skillfully interpreted by engraver John Hill and the results can rightly be said to have been one of elements which led to the growth of what became the Hudson River School of landscape painting. The popularity of the Hudson River School from the mid-1820s onwards, paid dividends for the Shaw's work as well and Thomas Ash was encouraged to reprint the series in 1835. Deak 315.18; cf.

      Boston: Wells and Lilly, 1821. Contemporary straight-grained red morocco with boards, spine, edges, and dentelles all elaborately gilt. Scattered light foxing. Fine. [with:] [MANUSCRIPT LETTER, SIGNED, FROM JOHN ADAMS TO DANIEL WEBSTER]. Dec. 23, 1821. [2]pp. with integral address leaf. Very good. Each document in a cloth chemise, together in a half morocco and cloth clamshell case. A presentation copy, inscribed by Daniel Webster on the titlepage: "Mr. Webster desires Mr. Boylston's acceptance of this, with his regards." This copy is beautifully bound in red straight-grained morocco, tooled in gilt on the boards and the spine, presumably bound for Boylston to signify it as a special copy. Accompanying the pamphlet is a remarkable letter from John Adams, second president of the United States, congratulating Webster on the speech and lauding him as the greatest orator of the time. Webster presented the pamphlet to Ward Nicholas Boylston (1749-1828), member of a prominent Boston family and a cousin of John Adams. Born in Boston, Boylston spent some twenty-five years in London engaged in various lines of trade, before returning to the United States in 1800 and settling in Princeton. He endowed a chair at Harvard in Rhetoric and Oratory, with the condition that John Quincy Adams would be installed as professor. The long and laudatory oration celebrates the bicentennial of the landing of the Pilgrims at Plymouth in 1620 and the rise of the nation which grew from this seed. Webster's primary theme is the American Revolution and the principles of American democracy. Addressed to "the true sons of New England," it is a clear statement of Webster's political stance, in which he frames his views as the proper successor to the New England founders, most particularly John Adams. This includes his determined opposition to slavery and its spread, just tested in the debates over the Missouri Compromise in 1820. Discussing reaction to the Revolution, at one point he calls Edmund Burke "the most consummate orator of modern times." But his greatest praise is reserved for John Adams, whom Webster calls " who has been attended through life by a great and fortunate genius...among the most able and zealous defenders of the violated rights of his country," and other warm praises running for three pages. To John Adams, second president of the United States, one of the few surviving signers of the Declaration of Independence, and arguably the most important figure in the Revolution from Massachusetts, the speech rang true, and not only for its towering praise of himself. He wrote a laudatory letter of thanks to Webster, the very letter which accompanies this pamphlet. The letter, dated Dec. 23, 1821, is in the hand of an unknown secretary (for reasons made clear in the letter), but signed by Adams in a shaky eighty-five-year-old hand. In it he praises Webster for his ability as an historian and orator, and for his stand on slavery. It is a remarkable passing of the torch from one great American leader to another. Adams writes: "Thank you for your Discourse delivered at Plymouth on the termination of the second century of the landing of our Forefathers. Unable to read it from defect of sight, it was last night read to me by our friend Shaw. It is the effort of a great mind richly stored with every species of information. If there be an American who can read it without tears, I am not that American. It enters more perfectly into the genuine spirit of New England than any production I ever read. The observations on the Greeks and Romans, on colonization in general, on the West India Islands, on the past present and future in America of the Slave trade, are sagacious profound and affecting to a high degree. "Mr. Burke is no longer entitled to the praise, 'the most consummate orator of modern times.' "What can I say of what regards myself - To my humble name exegisti monumentum aere marmore et audio perennieus [a slightly misspelled reference to Horace: 'I have built a monument more lasting than marble or bronze']. "This oration will be read five hundred years hence, ought to be read at the end of every Century, and indeed at the end of every year. "I am Sir with the profoundest esteem your most obedient humble servant, John Adams." A remarkable confluence of documents, bringing together New England's two political giants.

        Chronological Retrospect, or Memoirs of the Principal Events of Mahommedan History,

      London: J. Booth... Longman, Hurst, Reees, Orme and Brown; and Black, Kingsbury, Parbury, and Allen, , 1821. from the Death of the Arabian Legislator, to the Accession of the Emperor Akbar, and the Establishment of the Moghul Empire in Hindustaun. From the Original Persian Authorities. 3 volumes in 4, quarto (272 × 208 mm). Recent brown half sheep period style, spines gilt tooled on the raised bands, blind tooled in compartments, red and black twin labels, marbled sides and edges. Large folding handcoloured map of Asia (from the eastern Meditarrenean to Korea, and from Siberia to Mysore). An attractive set: clean and well-margined. First edition sheets with title pages dated 1821 and issued by the publishers on completion of the work, scarce. A significant work by the orientalist and army officer David Price (1762-1835), who saw action in the Third Anglo-Mysore War against Tipu Sultan, and, on retiring from the East India Company's service, settled in Wales and "devoted himself to writing long, leisurely works on Arabian, Persian, and Indian history. Of these the best-known and the most important is Chronological retrospect, or, Memoirs of the principal events of Mahommedan history … from original Persian authorities. This covers the period from the death of Muhammad to the accession of Akbar. The earlier volumes are based chiefly on the Persian chronicles of Mirkhand and Khandamir, and are most detailed and accurate with respect to Persian history; but in the last volume Abu'l-Fazl is largely used. It is written in the over-ornate style of Price's sources, but it is the painstaking work of a genuine scholar anxious to do full justice to his authorities. Without pretending to any striking grasp or generalization, it is nevertheless useful and was for many years almost the only English work of reference for some branches of Eastern history" (ODNB).

        A Treatise on the culture of the vine; with hints on the formation of vineyards in England. A treatise on the culture of the Pine-apple, and the management of the hot-house ... third edition

      London: printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, 1821. 2 parts in one volume, octavo. (8 7/16 x 5 inches). Half-title, general title, 2 part titles. 10 engraved plates (6 folding) after Speechly (8), Samuel Hieronymous Grimm (1) and Major Hayman Rooke (1). (Minor foxing to the plates). Contemporary green half calf over marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spine divided into six compartments by gilt fillets and a decorative roll, lettered in the second compartment, the others with repeat floral tooling Provenance: William Russell Grace (1832-1904, armorial bookplate) The Grace copy of the first combined edition of "the most important [works] on the culture of the vine and pineapple published during the eighteenth century, and it may be said that they laid the foundation for the improvements that followed" (Henrey). The two parts to this work were first published as separate treatises in 1790 (the vine) and 1779 (the pineapple), with second editions following in 1805 and 1796, respectively. The present third edition, the first time the two works had been published in combined form, is complete with ten plates: the plate list appears to call for eleven, but the fifth plate in the second part is not required. Speechly was a practical gardener who made his name working at Welbeck Abbey, the Duke of Portland's seat in Nottinghamshire, England. The results of his labours at Welbeck combined with the publication of the present treatises cemented his reputation as the one of the "best fruit and kitchen gardeners of his time" (Sandra Raphael). The reputation of his published works remains high: Edward Hyams in his Grapes under Cloches (London: 1952) praises this work as being "a model of the sound, practical, well-written ... manual." Irish-born William Russell Grace, co-founder of W.R Grace and Co., was an American success story and one of the richest men in the country. He was also a noted philanthropist and served two terms as Mayor of New York. James M.

        Juko Toka ben'yo [trans.: Essentials of the Treatment of Smallpox].

      Several illus. in the text. Ten vols. in six. 8vo, orig. wrappers (some sporadic minor worming), orig. block printed title label on each upper cover (several rubbed), new stitching. Tokyo: 1821. Second edition, gathering for the first time three important texts (see below) by Ikeda on Chinese vaccination. Ikeda (1734-1816), was a member of a prominent family of physicians, most famous for their smallpox treatment, using family secrets. He studied with Saimon-ge, a Chinese physician living in Japan. In 1798, the shogunate opened the first medical school (Igakukwan) and the etiology of smallpox was first studied in this school by Zuisen. "Chinese vaccination (i.e. inoculation) has been known in Japan since about the year 1653 when one Sai Manko first introduced the practice and taught the art of Chinese vaccination to Masanao Ikeda. After that time the Japanese made rather thorough studies of vaccination,using especially three old Chinese books on the subject: Shoni toshin horon (n.d.) by Chin Banc of the Sung Dynasty; Toshin bengi kinkyo-roku (n.d.) by Loy Teiken; and Toka-ko (n.d.) by Shu Son. A century later, in 1788, a descendant of Masanao, named Zuisen Ikeda, wrote three books, each of one volume, entitled Toso membu-den, Toso shinzetsu-den and Toso shinzetsu-zu. The first two of those writings contained illustrations of the faces of patients suffering from smallpox."-Mestler, A Galaxy of Old Japanese Medical Books, Part V, p. 200. The illustrations depict scars incurred by the disease and the faces of patients with smallpox. The text offers drug prescriptions, methods of diagnosis, and treatments. Fine and fresh set. .

        Shimpen Sanko [trans.: Treatment of Complications from Pregnancy and Labor].

      15 full-page illus. 42; 38 folding leaves. Two vols. in one. 8vo, orig. wrappers, orig. block-printed title label on upper cover, modern stitching. Kyoto: 1821. Second edition. "A quaint thought, but an altogether delightful one, is suggested in the title San ko, the interpretation of which we read in the preface as ' like a ferry boat which is sailing on a big ocean.' That two-volume obstetrical work was written entirely in Chinese characters by the Japanese physician Korechika or Ishin Kuwabara, and was first published in 1813 with a later edition in 1821 under the title Shimpen san ko. The illustrations are well-drawn. It is intriguing to see again the representation of one-egg and two-egg twins, with no comment in the text other than 'the two fetuses have one ena [placenta]' or 'each fetus has its own ena,' respectively. In that work some attempt was made to describe embryonic malformations and fetal monsters, and there is an illustration of anencephalia."- Mestler, A Galaxy of Old Japanese Medical Books, II, p. 495.

        Recherches sur la population, et sur la faculté d'accroissement de l'espèce humaine; contenant une réfutation des doctrines de M. Malthus sur cette matière ... traduit de l'Anglais, part F.-S. Constancio ...

      Paris. J-P Aillaud. 1821. Two vols., 8vo., (4) + xiv + 416 and (4) + 473 + (1)pp., with the two half-titles, in slightly later 19th century quarter calf over marbled boards, spines gilt with raised bands, labels renewed. A very good copy. First edition in French. Kress C.710. Goldsmiths 23169. Einaudi 2635. Schumpeter p.579. Patricia James, Population Malthus>, pp.376-82. Sabin 27676 (regarding a large section on the population of North America). The alacrity with which Godwin's work was translated into French indicates the lively interest in the Malthus-Godwin debate across the channel, which was to continue throughout the nineteenth century. Godwin had been one of Malthus's main antagonists for over two decades. He replied to the attacks made on him by Malthus in the first Essay>, 1798, through his Thoughts Occasioned by the Perusal of Dr. Parr's Spital Sermon>, subtitled being a reply to the attacks of Dr. Parr, Mr. Mackintosh, the Author of an Essay on Population and Others> published in 1801. From the Great Quarto of 1803 through to the 4th ed. of 1807 Malthus dealt extensively with Godwin's comments. However, by the 5th ed. of 1815 Godwin is largely ignored, precedence being given to the rising star, Robert Owen. Godwin was much distressed by this dismissal and this was exacerbated by his envy of Malthus's success. Why he waited a further five years, and nearly twenty in all, to lay his full views before the public is a mystery. It is, as Patricia James explains, painful reading, over 600 pages of repetitive bitterness. Godwin does not content himself with refuting the arguments but insists on running down his adversary in an insolent and bullying manner. No matter, it is still essential reading to fully understand the extent and heat of this most famous controversy.

        Autograph letter signed "F. Liszt" regarding a concert engagement for the distinguished mezzo-soprano Pauline Viardot

      - The present letter was written during a darker time in Liszt's personal life, just before he presented his official resignation to the Grand Duke of Weimar, and an unexpected, but serious, breach in his friendship with Richard Wagner. Pauline Viardot (1821-1910) was a distinguished French singer and composer whose voice inspired many of the 19th century's most important composers, including Liszt. 2 pp. Ca. 156 x 127 mm. Dated Weimar, December 22, [18]58. A remarkable letter in which Liszt asks a certain "Monsieur le Baron" to secure a concert engagement for the famed mezzo-soprano, Pauline Viardot, "who has just ravished us in the roles of Norma and Rosina. Persuaded of the very great pleasure that the Duke of Altenburg would find listening, at his court, to an artist very much at the height of all her fame, I have no fear of appearing indiscreet in begging you, Monsieur le Baron, to ask Their Highnesses which days between the 23rd and January 1st. [they] could settle upon a court concert at Altenburg." The "Baron" in question may have been Baron Alexis Des Michels (b.1836), a French diplomat and close friend of Charles Gounod, who had just visited Liszt at his villa near Weimar. Slightly worn; two minor creases and one small tear at folds; small light rectangular stain from remnants of tape to lower right corner.

        The Village Minstrel and Other Poems

      London: Taylor and Hessey, Fleet Street; and E. Drury, Stamford, 1821. Two twelvemo volumes bound in a single volume, modern dark green calf over marbled paper boards, raised bands, spine compartments ruled in gilt, brown morocco spine label lettered in gilt, endpapers renewed. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Clare in Volume I; Volume II bound without title page and first page of table of contents. Ink ownership signatures of Fenwick Skrimshire to title of Volume I and half-title of Volume II. Light foxing. First edition of ?"peasant poet?" John Clare's second book, following the surprise success of Poems Descriptive of Rural Life and Scenery in 1820. A Northamptonshire farm laborer whose personal struggles were compounded by mental illness, Clare produced hundreds of closely observed lyrics that remain startling in their immediacy and detail: ?"Bees in every peep did try, / Great had been the honey shower, / Soon their load was on their thigh, / Yellow dust as fine as flour.?" This copy bears the ownership signature of Clare's sympathetic longtime doctor, Fenwick Skrimshire, who first treated Clare in 1820, and eventually admitted him to the Northampton General Lunatic Asylum, where Clare spent his final years, still writing: "He lives the Crusoe of his lonely fields / Which dark green oaks his noontide leisure shields." When Skrimshire and Clare arrived at the asylum, the doctor described Clare's madness as hereditary; asked if it had been ?"preceded by any severe or long continued mental emotion or exertion,?" Skrimshire noted: ?"after years addicted to Poetical prosing?" (Bate, 5). Skrimshire's copy of The Village Minstrel is accompanied here by a first edition of his own 1838 treatise, The Village Pastor's Surgical and Medical Guide, in which he advises on the treatment of the insane: ?"the friend who can command a firm authoritative manner, and whilst looking the patient steadfastly in the face, will seize his arm, and lead him resolutely back to his bed, need not dread his violence.?" A near-fine copy, with a moving association.

        "Mémoire sur la Fermentation appelée lactique; Memoire sur la Fermentation alcoolique."Paris: Mallet-Bachelier, "1858; 1860".

      "First printings, in the very rare offprint form (first paper <b>inscribed by Pasteur</b>), of these two landmark papers, "often considered the beginning of bacteriology as a modern science, [which constitute] the first demonstration of the connection between a specific fermentation and the activity of a specific microorganism" (Garrison & Morton); "A great milestone in biochemistry" (Neville II, p. 274). "Pasteur's first paper on fermentation contains most of the central theoretical and methodological features of his biological theory of fermentation, in particular the concept of fermentation as a product of the growth of yeast, the idea that air is a source of microscopic yeasts and other micro-organisms, and the notion of specificity, in which each fermentation could be traced to a specific micro-organism" (Dibner). "Pasteur's concept of fermentation as a biological process challenged the chemical theory of fermentation put forth by Liebig, which Pasteur was able to disprove with his experiments on alcoholic and acetic fermentation" (Norman).<br/><br/> <i>Provenance</i>: The earlier paper is inscribed by Pasteur to the French physicist and chemist Pierre-Guillaume-Camille Forthomme (1821-84): "A Monsieur Forthomme, Professeur au lycée de Nancy, souvenir affectueux, L. Pasteur." <br/><br/> "Pasteur's memoir ['Sur la Fermentation appelée lactique'] expressed the basic approach and point of view which informed all of his subsequent work on fermentation. After a historical introduction he began by claiming that "just as an alcoholic ferment exists-namely, brewer's yeast-which is found wherever sugar breaks down into alcohol and carbonic acid-so too there is a special ferment-a lactic yeast-always present when sugar becomes lactic acid" ... Throughout the memoir Pasteur more nearly assumed than proved that lactic yeast "is a living organism, ... that its chemical action on sugar corresponds to its development and organization," and that the nitrogenous substances in the fermenting medium served merely as its food. ". "8vo (219 x 135 mm), pp [1-3] 4-106; [1] 2-15 [1:blank but with manuscript annotations, probably by Forthomme], both offprints bound together in early 20th century cloth, first and final leaf with some browning.

        Broadside. Begins: El General San Martin. Presencié la declaracion de la Independencia de los estados de Chile y el Perù ...

      Weary from ten years of war, sacrifice, and then the politics of the nascent Peruvian republic, Gen. San Martin, liberator of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, and Peru, here announces his retirement from public life. An Argentine by birth, San Martin's introduction to war happened not in America but in Europe where he was serving in the Spanish army against England, Portugal, and finally France. After the peninsula fell to the French, he returned to America and fought with and soon led one of the main rebel armies. The struggle lasted more than a decade, but on 12 July 1821, he took Lima from the Royalists, saw Peru officially declared independent on the 28th, and was himself named "Protector of Peru" on 3 August. Just about a year later, on 22 September 1822, via this document, he resigned his position and retired permanently from public life and service."The presence of a lucky soldier . . . is feared by newly constituted states; [and] for my part, I am tired of hearing it said that I want to be the sovereign." "Peruvians: I leave you with an established national government; if you repose in it all of your confidence, count on triumph; if you don't, anarchy will devour you." And with that he left Peru, returned to Argentina briefly, then sailed to Europe where he lived in several cities, only once attempting to return to America, but always maintaining a keen interest in the fate of his native Argentina. Searches of WorldCat, NUC, CCILA, COPAC, and the Catálogo Colectivo del Patrimonio Bibliográfico locate two copies worldwide: one in the U.S., and one in Chile. There is a very old unverified report of a copy in the Biblioteca Nacional in Lima.

        Memnon, Antigone und Oedip, v. J. Mayrhofer, und Am Grabe Anselmo's von Claudius. Für eine Singstimme mit Piano-Forte in Musik gesetzt [.] 6tes Werk.

      Vienna, Diabelli und Comp., [1821]. - Oblong folio. 11 pp. Engraved throughout. First edition with Schubert's autograph checkmark ("Sch[ubert] m[anu] p[ropria] 220") on last page and printed dedication to the Austrian theater director Michael Vogl. Much rarer than Schubert's first publication ("Erlkönig"), published the same year: no copy in international auction records. Usually, Schubert's autograph checkmarks on his early works are strongly trimmed in the descenders; in the present copy, however, the ckeckmark is entirely untouched by the binder's knife. In the last copy of Schubert's Opus 6 to appear in the trade (Schneider 282 [1985], 128), the checkmark was almost entirely trimmed away. - The fact that the checkmarks are in Schubert's own hand has been disputed (cf. E. Hilmar, "Anmerkungen zu Schuberts Erstdrucken", in: Florilegium Musicologicum 1988, 145-154); however, Drüner has made a strong case for their authenticity: "The problem is indeed more complicated for opuses 1-7 and 96, and in these cases Hilmar&#146;s refusal is too categorical. His main arguments are not correct [.] It is almost certain that on the occasion of the publication of his opus 1-7, Schubert proudly followed the examples given to him by Johann Nepomuk Hummel, who signed his opuses [.] Hummel and Schubert were pupils of Salieri who taught both of them the highest editorial precision. Therefore, the idea of signing definitely came from Schubert [.]" (Otto Haas, cat. 40 [2003], p. 16). For a comparison of handwriting cf. the paraphs pictured by Drüner on p. 16 (Schubert's hand, identical with ours) and 17 (by another hand). Also cf. the included illustration of Schubert's identical paraph on his Opus 4 ("Brahms himself identifies Schubert's hand on his copy of 'Der Wanderer' [.]", Sotheby's, 17 May 2002, lot 169]. - Clean, entirely untrimmed copy. Extremely rare thus. Deutsch 541, 542, 504. Hirsch IV, 479. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
