        Ludwig Tieck. Die Gemälde. Vorzugsausgabe mit 19 Originalradierungen von Eberhard Schlotter.

      - Hier zeigt sich einmal mehr, welch herausragende Fähigkeiten als Illustrator der Maler Eberhard Schlotter doch hat! Den Text des Frühromantikers und Dramatikers »Die Gemälde« gehört zu einem Zyklus von Novellen, die Tieck 1821 in Dresden verfasste, und von wo aus er sich stilistisch dem literarischen Realismus annäherte. Eberhard Schlotter hat den Text mit 19 Radierungen illustriert, auf seine ganz eigene, künstlerisch auf höchstem Niveau sich bewegende Weise. Ein ausgesuchtes, handgefertigtes und sogar limitiertes und vom Künstler signiertes Stück Buchkunst! Gedruckt in der Caslon-Antiqua auf VL-Bütten. 23,5 x 26,5 cm, 108 Seiten, 19 Radierungen, davon 1 farbig, Einband hellbraunes Oasenziegenhalbleder mit gerundeten Ecken und Goldprägung im Schmuckschuber (Edition de Tête, 113 Expl., Gesamtaufl. 150 Expl.)

Page [4] is an illustration, neatly hand- drawn, of Yale's proposed door and lock mechanism with notations concerning materials, thickness, and design. Near Fine. The Letter reads: "DEAR SIR - SINCE I WAS IN YOUR BANK THE OTHER DAY I HAVE THOUGHT OF YOUR OLD FASHIONED VAULT ARRANGEMENTS & FASTENINGS AND I WANT TO SAY TO YOU THAT I THINK I CAN MAKE IT PLAIN TO YOU THAT YOU OUGHT TO HAVE SOMETHING BETTER. I DON'T WANT YOU TO ATTRIBUTE IT TO DISINTERESTED NOTIONS ENTIRELY - IT IS MY BUSINESS TO FIND WHERE I CAN BE OF USE AND MAKE A LITTLE PROFIT MYSELF, AND I MUST SAY YOU ARE A GOOD SUBJECT. "I AM PUTTING SAFES AND DOORS INTO MANY COUNTRY BANKS WHEN THEIR FASTENINGS ARE ALREADY MUCH SUPERIOR TO YOURS - YOURS ARE VERY MUCH BEHIND THE AGE: WHICH MEANS MORE THAN SAYING YOUR COAT IS OUT OF FASHION [underlined in original]. I EXPLAINED ONE WEAKNESS TO YOU WHICH I DO NOT WISH YOU TO MAKE USE OF EXCEPT IN GUARDING YOURSELF AGAINST AS IT IS SOMETHING ENTIRELY OVERLOOKED BY MY COMPETITORS AND IT IS MY [I HOPE PARDONABLE] INTENTION TO LET THEM REMAIN IN IGNORANCE - AS I LOOK AT IT YOU WANT A SET OF DOORS TO YOUR VAULT WITH A MODERN LOCK AND A SMALL BURGLAR PROOF CHEST INSIDE YOUR PRESENT SAFE LARGE ENOUGH ONLY TO HOLD YOUR 'CONVERTIBLES' - "THE NEW DOORS AND LOCK TO THE VAULT WOULD HAVE A GOOD MORAL EFFECT WHICH I NEED NOT ENLARGE UPON THE IMPORTANCE OF TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY WHO LIVE IN THE SAME BUILDING - YOU HAVE UNDOUBTEDLY CONSIDERED HOW EXPOSED YOU ARE BY HAVING SUCH AN EASILY DEMOLISHED STRUCTURE TEMPTING THE PROWLING FRATERNITY WHO ALWAYS SEE EXACTLY WHAT THEY HAVE GOT TO DO TO GET AT THE MONEY.

I HAVE SPENT SIXTEEN YEARS IN THIS LINE AND LED THE WAY IN ALL THE IMPORTANT IMPROVEMENTS IN THAT TIME. I 'BLOW MY OWN HORN' KNOWING HOW MUCH STRAIN IT WILL BEAR WITHOUT INJURY ALTHOUGH IT MAY NOT BE VERY MUSICAL. "HOPING TO HEAR FROM YOU SOON ON THIS SUBJECT I AM VERY RESPECTFULLY YOURS, LINUS YALE, JR." Linus Yale, Jr. [1821-1868] invented the famous Yale Cylinder Lock, based on ancient Egyptian mechanisms and perfected by Yale, a distant relative of Elihu Yale, the founder of Yale University. The Yale lock, "the world's favorite lock," is touted on the Yale Lock website as "one of the oldest international brands in the world and probably the best- known name in the locking industry." Yale joined his father's business, the Yale Lock Shop in Newport, New York, in 1850. He perfected and patented his father's pin tumbler cylinder lock in 1861. By 1862 he introduced the Monitor Bank Lock, which transformed banks from key locks to dial or combination locks. He fine-tuned the cylinder lock with a second patent in 1865. He and Henry Robinson Towne formed the Yale Lock Manufacturing Company in Stamford, Connecticut. Materials and manufacturing practices have changed over the years, but the principle of Yale's design is mostly unchanged ["Our beginning - the history of Yale," accessed at the web site of Yale Lock]. Jerome Wells [1813-1880 ] was the first president of the Chicopee Savings Bank, organized in 1854, and served as such until 1874. [Everts: HISTORY OF THE CONNECTICUT VALLEY IN MASSACHUSETTS... VOL.

Noisette et rédigé d'après ses notes par L.A. Gautier. Ouvrage orné de 90 planches représentant 220 espèces de fruit coloriés d'après nature.

      Paris, Audot, 1821. 3 volumes bound in one (305 x 235mm). 4to. pp. (4), 95, (1); (4), 176, (2); (4), with 90 beautifully hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary half green calf, richly gilt decorated spines with gilt lettering. A beautifully bound and large copy of the scarce first edition, which was followed by a much smaller edition in 8vo in 1833-1839. "Louis Noisette was the son of a gardener and followed the same occupation in 1795, after his military service, when he took charge of the gardens and greenhouses of the Val de Grâce hospital in Paris. Three years later he was renting land for his own nursery garden in Faubourg Saint-Jaques. Once his garden was established he travelled to Hungary with Prince Esterhazy, furnishing the Prince's new plantations there. As Noisette's reputation and his nursery's stock both grew, he started a larger garden for trees and fruit at Fontenay-les-Roses, before moving to Montrouge in 1836. The Noisette nursery is credited with the introduction to France of many new North American plants, a speciality that must have been helped by Louis's brother Philippe, who was for some years a nurserymen in Charleston, South Carolina. The original Noisette rose, first raised in Charleston, was one of these introductions, in 1814, and the 'Fraisier de Caroline' in the 'Jardin fruitier' is another reminder of the association." (S. Raphael. An Oak Spring Pomona, p. 114 & 117). There are mostly several fruits on each plate. //Nissen BBI, 1450; Dunthorne. Flower and Fruit Prints, 217.

Captain Hiram Cox (1760 - 1799) British diplomat, serving in Bengal and Burma in the 18th century. As an officer of the East India Company, Captain Cox was appointed Superintendent of Palongkee outpost after Warren Hastings became Governor of Bengal. Captain Cox was specially mobilised to deal with a century-long conflict between Arakan refugees and local Rakhains .sent to Rangoon following a request from the Governor General to the East India Company in 1796. When in 1784, Burma finally invaded the remnant of the Arakanese kingdom, south of the Naf, the lawlessness of the company lands to the north of the river was somewhat enhanced by a flood of Arakanese refugees, fleeing the depredations of the Burmese army. About 1798, Richard Wellesley, the Earl of Mornington, newly appointed Governor of Bengal and Governor General of the East India Company’s territories, eldest brother of the famous Arthur Wellesley, recognised both the problem and the opportunity of these much neglected territories. In 1798, he gave the task of settling the refugees from Arakan into lands and activities that could prove profitable to the company to Captain Hiram Cox Contemporary calf, matching reback.

        Untersuchungen über die Formen der leblosen Natur. Erster Band (alles Erschienene).

      Göttingen Vandenhoeck und Ruprecht 1821 - (25 x 21 cm). VIII, 677 S. Mit 16 gefalteten Kupfertafeln. Moderner Pappband im Stil der Zeit. Einzige Ausgabe dieser auf fünf Bände konzipierten systematischen Arbeit. Der Verfasser versucht hier eine Morphologie des Leblosen zu entwickeln, um darüber deren inneren Aufbau zu erkunden; dazu fasst er die einzelnen Mineralien zu größeren Gruppen zusammen. - Hausmann (1782-1859), Professor für Mineralogie, Bergwissenschaften und Technologie in Göttingen, begründete eine Systematik der Mineralien und beobachtete erstmals die Mineralbildung aus Schmelzflüssen. Er gilt als Mitbegründer der Geologie von Norwegen. Seine Arbeiten zeugen von seinem Ringen um Eigenständigkeit, von großer Klarheit der Gedanken und einer Fülle an Wissen. Er "führte schon 1803 die sphärische Trigonometrie für Kristallberechnungen ein und wendete die von Ch. Sam. Weiß 1806 entwickelte Zonenlehre frühzeitig an. 1821 erklärte er (in obigem Werk) gekrümmte Kristallflächen durch Kombinationen ebener, sehr stumpf gegeneinander geneigter Flächen, erläuterte Kristallaggregate, leitete die Nebenformen durch Abstumpfung, Zuschärfung und Zuspitzung der Ecken und Kanten der Hauptformen ab und führte den Begriff der 'Teilbarkeit' (Symmetrie regelmäßiger Kristallformen nach einer Ebene) ein" (NDB). - Besitzvermerk auf Titel.

        Grundlinien der Philosophie des Rechts. (Vortitel: Naturrecht und Staatswissenschaft im Grundrisse. Zum Gebrauch für seine Vorlesungen).

      - Berlin, Nicolai, 1821. 8vo. 1 Bl., XXVI, 355 S. Neuer Halbleder unter Verwendung der alten Bezugspapiere. Erste Ausgabe. - Eines der ganz wenigen von Hegel selbst veröffentlichten Werke und die einzige seiner Berliner Vorlesungen, die er selbst drucken ließ. Hier mit dem häufig fehlenden Vortitel: Naturrecht oder Staatswissenschaft im Grundrisse. Wie bereits der Vortitel andeutet, versteht sich das Werk als Versuch, den neuzeitlichen Widerspruch zwischen Naturrecht einerseits und Staatsräson andererseits bzw. zwischen reiner Moralität und praktischer Politik zu überwinden. Geschichtlicher Hintergrund waren einerseits die Französische Revolution mit ihrem emphatischen Freiheitsbegriff und die beginnende Gegenbewegung der Restaurationsepoche, zum andern die ökonomischen und sozialen Umwälzungen der beginnenden industriellen Revolution. Berühmt geworden ist das Diktum aus der Vorrede: "Was vernünftig ist, das ist wirklich/ und was wirklich ist, das ist vernünftig" (S. XIX). Dieses methodische Prinzip, an die Wirklichkeit nicht mit vorgefertigten Ideen heranzutreten, wurde in der Folgezeit höchst unterschiedlich ausgelegt. Die Wirkungsgeschichte der Hegelschen Rechtsphilosophie reicht von der bloßen konservativen Apologie des Bestehenden über die Verabsolutierung des Staates bis zur marxistischen Auffassung von der proletarischen Revolution als dem notwendigen nächsten Schritt des Weltgeistes.- Vorderer Vorsatz mit Notiz von alter Hand zu drei zeitgenössischen Rezensionen des Werkes in verschiedenen Gelehrten Zeitungen. - PMM 283; LPhW 318; Ueberweg IV, 78. - Unbeschnittenes, meist auch unaufgeschnittenes Exemplar. Gebräunt u. etwas stockfleckig. Erste Blätter im Kopfsteg mit leichtem Wasserrand. S. 17-22 der Vorrede verbunden. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

(Aus: Denkschrift der kgl. baierischen Akademie der Wissenschaften. Band 8). Erste Ausgabe seiner ersten wichtigen Arbeit über Beugungserscheinungen. - In der vorliegenden Abhandlung beschreibt Fraunhofer die Beugungserscheinungen des Lichtes an einem Gitter und trägt damit wesentlich zur Bestätigung der Undulationstheorie bei. Die Wellenlängen der so erhaltenen Spektrallinien kann er mit Hilfe der von ihm entdeckten dunklen Linien sehr genau bestimmen. Erst durch diese Arbeit findet die Entdeckung der nach ihm benannten Linien die nötige Beachtung in der Fachwelt. Darüber hinaus beschreibt Fraunhofer hier noch die Konstruktion eines Apparates, der zur Beobachtung der astronomischen Spektren dienen soll. - Beachtenswert ist, dass die sehr feinen Tafeln von Fraunhofer selbst gestochen wurden. - Stellenweise leicht stockfleckig. - DSB 5, 142; Darmstaedter 342 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Spanish mezzo-soprano Maria Malibran was the daughter of tenor and composer Manuel Garcia the Elder, and sister of the famed singers Pauline Viardot (1821-1910) and Manuel Garcia the Younger (1805-1906). She made her London début at the King';s Theatre in June 1825 as Rosina (Il barbiere), and "her Paris début at the Théâtre Italien in Semiramide in 1828, where she also created the title role in Halévy';s Clari (1828). She reappeared at the King';s Theatre in 1829 in Otello, and then sang alternately in Paris and London until 1832, when she went to Italy... She also created the title role in Donizetti';s Maria Stuarda on 30 December 1835, causing a famous scandal by ignoring some changes that the Milanese censors had insisted upon. Bellini adapted the role of Elvira in I puritani (1835, Paris) for her to sing in Naples, but the opera was turned down by the management and she never sang it. Her first marriage having eventually been annulled, she married the violinist Charles de Bériot [1802-1870] in March 1836, and at Drury Lane in May of that year created the title role in Balfe';s The Maid of Artois, which he had written for her. A riding accident when she was pregnant resulted in her death during the Manchester Festival. To judge from the parts adapted for her by both Donizetti and Bellini, the compass (g to e ), power and flexibility of Malibran';s voice were extraordinary. Her early death turned her into something of a legendary figure with writers and poets during the later 19th century." Elizabeth Forbes in Grove Music Online. The recipient of this letter was most likely Carlo Severini, co-director of the Théâtre Italien in Paris from 1825 until 1838. "[His] tenure was one of the high points in the history of the Théâtre Italien, a period that featured the Parisian premières of works such as Anna Bolena and La sonnambula, the world première of I puritani and regular appearances by such great singers as Grisi, Rubini, Tamburini and Lablache. In [1838] Severini met a premature death in a fire at the theatre, apparently in an attempt to save administrative papers." Steven Huebner in Grove Music Online. Louis Véron (1798-1867) was director of the Paris Opéra from 1831-1835. "He was the first director to be permitted to operate the institution as a private enterprise, albeit with a large state subsidy and surveillance by a government commission. With the financial backing of the Spanish banker Alexandre Aguado and new business strategies that included increasing the number of long-term subscribers, Véron amassed a considerable fortune during his four-year directorship. He steered the Opéra to a position of renewed prominence in Parisian society by creating a meeting ground for the aristocracy and upper castes of the bourgeoisie." Steven Huebner in Grove Music Online. Carlo Zucchelli (1793-1879) was a noted Italian bass. Between 1823 and 1835 he "divided his time between the King's Theatre in London and the Théâtre Italien in Paris. Thereafter he sang at Bologna, Rome, Livorno and elsewhere in Italy, finally retiring from the stage in 1842." Grove Music Online. This letter was most likely written between 1829 and 1832, during which time Malibran sang frequently in Paris, and at the Théâtre Italien in particular. The watermark, dated 1828, serves as a terminus post quem, and Severini's death, in 1838, as a terminus ante quem. Considering the initial acquaintance of Bériot and Malibran, which did not take place until 1829, and Malibran's departure for Italy in 1832, however, this letter was more likely written between these dates. In any case, it is certainly unlikely that Malibran wrote it after 1835, when Louis Véron left the Paris Opéra and Zucchelli returned to Italy.. 2 pp. of a bifolium with integral address panel. Quarto. N.d. [ca. 1829-1832]. In black ink. On stationery with watermark "Gaudin Fils 1828." In French (with translation). Although Malibran is once again confined to bed due to poor health, she will sing in several upcoming performances. "My health is about the same, given that yesterday I got out of bed for the first time and was obliged to return home very quickly. I am once again confined to bed. Nevertheless I expect to keep my word and take a chance Wednesday in the role of Zerlina [in Mozart's Don Giovanni] for our good [Carlo] Zucchelli. Saturday I will play Rosina [in Rossini's La Barbiere di Siviglia] if you do not object to this opera, which is the least tiring of all my roles and which will put me at least risk of a relapse. Please therefore put in all the newspapers that my perfomance will take place Sunday, because if you don't plan to announce it until Wednesday evening there will not be enough time to inform the public about it. Mr. [Charles] de Bériot is kindly taking charge of the letter I have addressed to Mr. [Louis] Véron. You will have the reply as soon as it is written to me."

First (and only) edition of the first Singalese grammar in a Western language, Rask's highly importent work, in which he "identified Sinhalese as a speech belonging to the same class as Sanskrit and added that Tamil belonged to quite a different class. Since then the subject has been studied and discusses by various scholars, and it is established beyond doubt that Sinhalese is an Indo-Aryan language."Rasmus Rask is one of the absolutely most prominent and famous Danish philologers and is very well esteemed worldwide. He was the first to systematically study the ancient Nordic languages and is the discoverer of the relations between the consonants in the Indo-European languages. This discovery served as the foundation of the rules Jacob Grimm later formulated, underlying the Germanic and High-German soundshifts. In PMM, Rask is identified as "one of the founders of the modern science of language." (PMM 266)

        The world in miniature; ... Japan, ...London, printed for R. Ackerman, [1825]. 12mo. With 20 hand-coloured engraved plates, including the frontispiece. Contemporary gold-tooled green morocco, gilt edges.

      Abbey, Travel 6 (complete series), esp. pp. 12-13; Colas 2730; Pages 486. A charming illustrated book describing Japan, from the 43 volume series 'The world in miniature', published in 1821-1827. Each of these volumes was illustrated with coloured stipple engravings and in the present book they mostly portray the costumes and dress of various professions and classes in Japan. As Japan was an almost completely isolated country until 1853, the book is based on many earlier sources and probably for a large part on an earlier French publication from 1818 published by Nepveu in Paris. Although not all sources consulted were equally reliable, the description in the book are steeped in the empiricism of the 19th century. For instance, after mentioning "amphibious animals, which have a body like a fish, four of five feet long, covered with scales, and a head furnished with hair resembling that of a man", it is concluded that "this account has the air of a fable; but it is probable that some animal unknown to Europeans may have furnished the subject of it".With the bookplate of Kessler Brunner. With offsetting from the plates on the facing pages and the binding slightly rubbed near the edges. Otherwise a very good copy.

Etched portrait frontispiece of Bridle, by George Cruikshank, holding the tools of his trade (leg irons, manacles and a hangman's noose), five etched plates, probably by Robert Cruikshank, woodcut text illustration on p. 261.

Moderate rubbing with some wear to spine ends, joints and corners, crack in text block between title page and following leaf. Moderate toning, light foxing in a few places. Later inscription in pencil to front pastedown, interior otherwise clean. * First edition in book form. This was originally issued in six parts, "price one shilling" each, in blue paper printed wrappers. Henry Hunt, the radical politician, had presided over the Smithfield reform meeting on 21 July 1819, and at the meeting in St. Peter's Fields, Manchester, on 16 August, which was broken up by the yeomanry, and became known as the Peterloo Massacre. Hunt was tried at the York Assizes, in March 1 820, for his part in the protest, and was convicted. He spent his two-year term at Ilchester Gaol. The report of the Commission of Inquiry into Ilchester Gaol, instigated because of Hunt's complaints, provides a vivid portrait of the corruption, health hazards and horrifying regimes in place in local prisons in the early years of the nineteenth century. Hunt leveled 21 charges against Bridle, the gaoler. These included gross neglect of duty, drunkenness, gambling, cruelty, torture, bribery, embezzlement, false accounting, "licentious conduct towards female convicts (Bridle was suspected of fathering children with two of them), not feeding inmates properly, and for "making boys sleep with a man convicted of beastiality". It was Hunt himself who examined the witnesses and principals involved. The plates by Robert Cruikshank are mock portraits of: "The Revd. T.G.D. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

      St. Petersburg: Imperial Academy of Sciences,, 1821. [Notes on the People and Lands in the Central Part of Asia by Filipp Nazarov, a Translator of the Special Siberian Corps who was sent to Kokand in 1813 and 1814] Octavo (210 × 122 mm) Contemporary maroon quarter sheep, marbled boards. Contemporary book-label of H. J. Melin on the bottom margin of p.17, small ink-stamp to the tail of the last page. A little rubbed, particularly on the joints and corners, some skilful restoration, endpapers browned and with some tan-burn at the corners, text lightly toned, overall a very good copy. First edition. Extremely uncommon, just six copies on OCLC. One of the earliest accounts of Russian relations with the Khanate of Kokand, containing a detailed description of an expedition across Central Asia, into areas very little known at the time; "I publish the result of my observations with the hope of throwing some light on these interesting countries, the birthplace of the tribes which were long the scourge of the Russian Empire" (translation from the London Magazine review of Klaproth's "Magasin Asiatique", April, 1826). The author, Filipp Nazarov, was an interpreter with the Special Siberian Corps of the Russian army, who in 1813, was sent on a special mission to the khanate in order to "repair relations" (Starr, Ferghana Valley: The Heart of Central Asia, p.44) following the death of two members of a Kokandian deputation on their return from a embassy to the court at St. Petersburg in 1812. Accompanied by a 100-camel caravan of Russian merchants seeking to establish trade relations with Kokand, and laden with imperial gifts for the khan, Nazarov departed from Omsk in May 1813. What follows is a finely-observed geographical travelogue encompassing topography and ethnography, largely pragmatic, but inevitably tinged with the Orientalism of its time, and nonetheless revealing for that. His route took him via Petropavlovsk, across the Kazakh-Kirghiz steppe, where he was warned to guard against plunder by the marauding Kirghiz hordes - "slaves to their word, but violent, vindictive, thieves by nature, and ungoverned in their passions Â… the right of the strongest prevails amongst them in the fullest sense of the term". He visits Tchimket - modern-day Shymkent in Kazakhstan - where the governor offers them two hundred soldiers as an escort on their way to Tashkent, where "The city is full of life; the streets are crowded; the people dance before the doors of the houses, others have music in their gardens; one imagines oneself in a continuous fête", but where the governor impounds the caravan and the Kokoandians' gifts from the Tsar. Once at Kokand - "very large and populous; there are not less than four hundred mosques" - Nazarov secures his audience with the khan, a man "of about five-and-twenty Â… dressed in a shawl decorated with golden fringes and acorns" - and presents the Tsar's letter and gifts. Having declined to hand over what remains of the merchants' goods or turn renegade as restitution for the death of the envoys, and having declared himself willing to face execution in the knowledge of the vengeance that the Tsar would visit upon his murderers; Nazarov's Cossack guard is dismissed and he finds himself under house arrest. The khan then proposes that he accompany him on a hunting trip to Marghilan with the intention of moving him further from any possible assistance. Nazarov spends some months travelling the Ferghana valley, visiting amongst other places Andijan, where the khan kept a game preserve, and Namanghan, notable as a centre for handcrafts, and horticulture; "Throughout this sandy steppe we saw very populous villages; the inhabitants appeared to be extremely well off, and to want nothing that can make their existence happy; their countenances have an expression of the most perfect contentment". The party then returns to Kokand, where Nazarov receives the reply to the Tsar's letter and is sent on his way with a small escort. He makes his circuitous return via the recently conquered town of Urutupa, Khujand, a thriving city now in Tajikistan, and revisits Tashkent, before again braving the Kirghiz and reaching Petropavlovsk on 15 October 1814. Thus ended Nazarov's perilous mission to Central Asia, one of the few such accounts to be published, the edition being underwritten by Nikolai Petrovich Rumyantsev (1754-1826), Russian Foreign Minister and Imperial Chancellor, who was a prominent patron of arts, a collector and bibliophile, and a supporter of Russian exploration, who sponsored Krusenstern and Lisianski's first Russian circumnavigation of 1803-6.

        [Collection of Tracts and Speeches pertaining to Queen Caroline]

      London, 1821. 1 vols. 8vo. Contemporary half calf and paste paper boards. Rebacked preserving spine. Very good. 1 vols. 8vo. The Countess of Jersey's Copies. Collection of pamphlets from the "Queen Caroline Affair" (1820), with the ownership signatures of the Countess of Jersey, Sarah Sophia Child Villiers (1785-1867). She was a banking heiress with a colossal income; her husband, fifth Earl of Jersey, famed as a foxhunter and sportsman, was the son of Frances Villiers, a notorious coquette and royal mistress of George IV when Prince of Wales. Sarah Jersey was "one of the most prominent hostesses and social figures of her generation … her houses became centres for the whig party. … Her love of being at the centre of attention, perhaps, as much as conviction led her to take up the unfashionable cause of Queen Caroline when George IV was seeking to divorce her: she championed the queen with such frenzied fervour that her friends began to doubt her reason" (ODNB). The first three titles are exceedingly scarce; the fourth title is more widely held in institutions. Includes: 1. Substance of Lord (Thomas) Erskine's Speech in the House of Lords ... the 14th of July 1820, on moving that a list of the witnesses intended to be examined in support of the Bill of Pains and Penalties should forthwith be delivered to the Queen.

        The Lives of the Most Eminent English Poets: With Critical Observations On Their Works A New Edition, Corrected

      London: Printed for F.C. and J. Rivington, et al., 1821. Early nineteenth-century edition of Johnson's Lives of the Poets, first published between 1779 and 1781. The major work of his final years, these virtuosic character sketches are now recognized as a turning point in literary biography. Led by "the honest desire of giving useful pleasure," Johnson drew on decades of reading and conversation to sum up the English poets of the previous century, including Milton, Dryden, Gay, Pope, Young, and Gray. Sharp and straightforward, Johnson invites his readers to debate, as in his pointed account of Jonathan Swift: "He pays no court to the passions; he excites neither surprise nor admiration; he always understands himself; and his reader always understands him." The characteristically effusive James Boswell calls this work "the richest, most beautiful, and indeed most perfect, production of Johnson's pen." A near-fine early edition, in a stunning contemporary binding. Two octavo volumes, contemporary full straight-grain red morocco, boards elaborately stamped in gilt and blind, spine panels lettered and decorated in gilt, brown coated endpapers, gilt dentelles, all edges gilt. Occasional light toning to text blocks, page 246 of Volume I mispaginated 426, front board of Volume II lightly scuffed. Nineteenth-century ink presentation inscription to first flyleaf of both volumes ("E dono sociorum"), later pencil inscription to first flyleaf of Volume I.
