        Entdeckungs-Reise in die Süd-See und nach der Berings-Strasse zur Erforschung einer nordöstlichen Durchfahrt. Unternommen in den Jahren 1815, 1816, 1817, und 1818

      Weimar: Gebrüder Hoffmann, 1821. 3 volumes in one, quarto. (10 5/8 x 8 5/8 inches). 18pp. subscribers list. 6 engraved maps (5 folding), 20 aquatint plates (19 hand-coloured, 4 folding) after Ludovik Choris, Eschscholtz and others, 2 folding letterpress tables. Text uncut. Modern paper-backed blue boards Provenance: Thomas W. Streeter (booklabel, pencil notes; his sale, part VI, Sotheby's Park Bernet, 22 April 1969, lot 3511) Thomas W. Streeter's copy of the first edition, coloured issue of Kotzebue's important second Russian circumnavigation: a cornerstone work of Pacific exploration with important descriptions of Hawaii, California and Alaska. Kotzebue's expedition in the ship Rurick, sponsored by Count Romanzoff, sailed from Kronstadt at the end of July 1815, rounded Cape Horn and visited Chile, Easter Island, the Marshall Islands, Hawaii, and the North American coast, making an unsuccessful search for a northwest passage. The return was made via New Archangel, California, Hawaii, Marianas, Philippines, and St. Helena. This famous narrative is particularly important for its descriptions of Alaska and California (including the first scientific account of the California state flower, the Golden Poppy). Kotzebue describes the missions in California, and the work is considered one of the most important early accounts of that state. The work is of great importance in the early exploration of Alaska. "Rich in early original source material on Alaska ... Kotzebue belonged to that group of outstanding Russian naval officers of the first half of the nineteenth century, which included Kruzenshtern, Golovnin, Lisianskii, Sarychev, and others..." (Lada-Mocarski). "It was on this voyage that Kotzebue discovered Kotzebue Sound in Alaska, thinking for a time as he sailed east that he had found the long sought north-east passage" (Streeter). The Hawaiian portion is extensive and contains important observations on life and customs during the reign of Kamehameha I, whose famous "red vest" portrait by Choris is one of the illustrations. The account of Albert von Chamisso, the expedition naturalist, includes important information about flora and fauna, as well as the Indians and the work of the missionaries. There is also a comparative vocabulary table for the languages of some of the islanders. As a record of historical import, and as a collection of significant maps and beautiful plates, this work is one of the prime desiderata of Pacific voyages. Three distinct issues of the first edition were published: eighty-eight copies were produced on very fine "Velin papier" with the plates hand coloured (issue A); an issue on regular hand-made laid paper, of which a limited number of copies have coloured plates (issue B); and an issue on laid paper with the portrait plates coloured, but the folding plates in sepia aquatint (issue C). The present copy of the work is a fine example of the second issue with the plates hand coloured. This fine copy of Kotzebue appeared at auction in part six of the famed sale of the Thomas W. Streeter collection, realizing $550 in 1969.

        Lettre autographe signée (1860) / À Poulet-Malassis / Au sujet des Fleurs du Mal

      - BAUDELAIRE Charles (1821-1867). Poète français. Lettre autographe signée « C.B. », (Paris), samedi (28 juillet 1860), à Auguste Poulet-Malassis, 1 page in-8. Ancienne collection Armand Godoy. Très belle lettre de Baudelaire évoquant Wagner et Les Fleurs du Mal. « Un moment où je travaille ( ) à Wagner ( ) la mise en ordre des Fleurs » « Mon cher ami, cela va vous arriver demain matin dimanche ; ainsi je ne serai pas coupable de vous avoir gêné. Notre fête est manquée, à mon grand chagrin. Ah ! quelle vie ! J’ai perdu ma journée d’hier à courir après une passe pour moi-même, par Calonne, par Le Moniteur, impossible. Alors je me suis dit : 60 francs à dépenser et trois jours à perdre dans un moment où je travaille au Houzard et à Wagner. Envoyez l’argent à Duranty. Ainsi le 15, je ferai avec vous ce que nous aurions fait demain, la mise en ordre des Fleurs, et causer des moyens sérieux de diminuer ma dette. Guérissez-vous bien et pensez à moi. C.B. ». À cette époque, Charles Baudelaire se consacre à trois projets d’écriture. Le premier étant l’adaptation théâtrale de la nouvelle de Paul de Molènes (1821-1862), « Les Souffrances d’un Houzard » (nouvelle qui était parue en juillet 1851 dans la Revue de Paris). Baudelaire s’était lié avec cet écrivain-soldat pour qui il vouait une véritable amitié. Le projet de Baudelaire concernant son "Houzard" ne fut jamais achevé Le second projet était son étude sur Wagner (Richard Wagner et Tannhäuser à Paris, 1861). Baudelaire et de nombreux artistes (Théophile Gautier, Berlioz entre autres) avaient assisté le 25 janvier 1860 au concert de Wagner à Paris, salle Ventadour. Baudelaire était tombé littéralement amoureux des œuvres alors jouées par le compositeur allemand. Malgré les réactions mitigées, voir moqueuses dans la presse, Baudelaire s’était empressé d’écrire à Wagner pour lui témoigner toute son admiration (le poète parlait de « perte de conscience » à l’écoute de Tannhäuser et de « plus grande jouissance musicale » qu’il n’avait jamais éprouvée). Son étude paraitra dans La Revue Européenne le 1er avril 1861 (éditée par la suite en plaquette chez Dentu). Enfin la troisième œuvre dont il question dans cette lettre est bien entendu la réimpression de son recueil Les Fleurs du Mal (publié une première fois en 1857). Cette seconde édition paraitra en février 1861 chez Poulet-Malassis. Cette édition qui supprime les six poèmes censurées (en août 1857) fut enrichie de trente-cinq nouveaux poèmes et tirée à 1.500 exemplaires. En mai 1861, Baudelaire cèdera à son éditeur (et à son beau-frère Eugène de Broise) le droit de reproduction exclusif de ses œuvres littéraires.

L'ouvrage comprend 2 tableaux repliés, 7 cartes gravées sur cuivre dont 6 dépliantes, ainsi 20 que planches dont 19 coloriées à la main, gravées à l'aquatinte d'après les dessins de Louis Choris et Johann Friedrich von Eschscholtz entre autres, soit : 4 portraits d'indigènes, 4 vues à double pages, dont une scène d'intérieur, et 11 planches de papillons. Texte en lettres gothiques (Fraktur). Édition originale du Voyage dans l'océan du sud et au détroit de Béring, première expédition scientifique du navigateur russe Otto von Kotzebue dans les mers du Sud. Elle fut financée par le comte Romanzoff (Nikolaï Roumiantsev) ; à bord du Rurik, Kotzebue (1787-1846), accompagné de savants parmi lesquels le poète et naturaliste Adelbert von Chamisso, navigua de Kronstadt vers Copenhague puis Plymouth, Teneriffe et de là vers le Brésil, le Chili, puis Kamchatka. De là, il découvre le golfe qui porte son nom, passe le Détroit de Béring à l'été 1816, explore la côte nord de l'Amérique et navigue vers les Îles Sandwich et vers les îles de la Micronésie. L'expédition de Kotzebue contribua de manière essentielle à la connaissance de l'Alaska, de la Californie d'Hawai et de la Micronésie. En Polynésie, il revendiqua la découverte de trois îles, Tikei, Takapoto et Tikehau. Pendant la première moitié du XIXe siècle, de nombreux grands voiliers effectuèrent le trajet entre Saint-Pétersbourg et les territoires du Nord-Est ; on a appelé cette période « l'ère des circumnavigations russes », inaugurée en 1803-1806 par l'amiral Krusenstern (1770-1845). C'est d'après les instructions de ce dernier que Kotzebue réalisa ses deux grands voyages (le second en 1823-1826), dont le but était d'établir un Atlas de la mer du Sud qui se substituerait aux cartes plus anciennes, notamment à celles d'Arrowsmith, devenues obsolètes. Les deux premiers volumes de cette publication décrivent l'itinéraire du Rurik : ils contiennent, à la fin, une analyse de l'amiral Krusenstern lui-même, des remarques sur les maladies qui ont touché l'équipage durant les trois ans de la traversée par Eschscholtz, embarqué comme médecin de bord. Le volume III, contient les remarques d'Adelbert von Chamisso (1781-1838) sur l'histoire naturelle et le langage, avec un vocabulaire comparatif. La même année, le poète, Français d'origine émigré en Prusse après la Révolution, publia à son tour son journal de voyage ; Reise um die Welt : Tagebuch. Rousseurs pâles au texte et aux planches, légère auréole angulaire sur quelques cahiers. Sabin 38284. Brunet III, 693. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Berlin, 24. November 1821. - 1 S. auf Doppelblatt. Mit eigenh. Umschlag mit Lacksiegel und Beilageschreiben. An den Wirtschafts-Amtmann Stenzel auf seinem Gut Erdmannsdorf bei Hirschberg in Schlesien, das er gegen das Gut Mittel-Kauffung eingetauscht hatte: "[.] Der vormalige Wirthschafts Amtmann Geisler hat einliegendes Schreiben an mich gerichtet. Ich fürchte fast, daß er sich übereilt und obgleich [.] er meinen Wirthschafts-Anordnungen sich nicht gefügt und durch seinen Widerwillen gegen die Wechselwirthschaft mich in Schaden und Verdruß gebracht hat, so will ich doch mich seiner annehmen. Ich habe ihm den Gerichtschreiberposten verheißen [.] Bis dieses aber in Erfüllung geht, möchte ich gern für seinen Unterhalt und Beschäftigung sorgen [.] In dem jetzigen Winterhalbjahr aber wäre es wohl besser, den Geisler die Schreibergeschäfte besorgen zu lassen, und zwar um so mehr, da Geisler das Gut und die Einsassen kennt. Diese Maasregel ist zugleich eine Ersparnis für mich, und eine Wohltat dem Geisler. Der Wirthschaftsschreiber Graaf hat mich um eine Beihülfe zu seinen Kurkosten gebeten [.]" - Der beiliegende Brief von Geisler (dat. Erdmannsdorf, 4. I. 1822) kann nicht das von Gneisenau erwähnte Schreiben sein. Geisler bittet um Schuldenerlaß für einen jungen Mann namens Rüffer. - Die im Brief erwähnte Fruchtwechselwirtschaft nach dem Vorbild der englischen Landwirtschaft war von Thaer ab ca. 1800 propagiert worden, setzte sich aber nur langsam gegen die Dreifelderwirtschaft durch. - Umschlag leicht fleckig, sonst gut erhalten.

        Analyse du jeu des échecs : avec une nouvelle notation abrégée, et quarante-deux planches où se trouve figurée la situation du jeu pour les renvois et les fins de partie. Nouvelle Édition. A laquelle on a joint la figure et la marche des différentes pièce

      Chez J Johnston, libraire-editeur. Imprimerie de Lafourcarde, Philadelphia 1821 - 150 pages with 42 color imprints in green, black and red and one wood cult illustrations of chess piece. Small octavo (7" x 4 1/2") bound in quarter leather with raised spine bands and gilt lettering to spine. (Hagedorn: 6; Bibliotheca van der Linde-Niemeijeriana:457) Later edition of Phildor's work first published in 1749. Fiske noted that the paper, typography and general appearance of the work prove to have been printed in Euripe and probably Belgium. But despite its spurious imprint, Hagedorn felt that it required inclusion in his bibliography of Chess in America to 1859. He goes on to suggest that the problems of its pedigree have yet to be solved. America had at that time achieved no fame in the chess world that would make a book from the United States attractive to foreign players. It does not seem to be based on any known American work. He suggest that the answer might be found in the publishing records of early nineteenth century Belgium. In 1736 at the age of 10, Francois-Andre was exposed to chess by the musicians who played chess during spells of inactivity. Cards were forbidden to pass the time, so chess was played. He learned the game by watching the band members play. He later visited the Cafe de la Regence in Paris and spent much of his time playing chess there. In 1737, at the age of 11, his first music composition, a religious piece, was played before King Louis XV. He left the Chapel Royal choir in 1740 when his voice changed. In 1740 he went to Paris where he earned a living by copying music and giving music lessons. In 1741 Philidor was being instructed by M. de Kermur, Sire de Legal (1702-1792), the leading French chess player. Legal initially gave Philidor rook odds. For the next three years Kermur taught Philidor until Philidor was too strong for his teacher. By 1750 Philidor was considered the strongest player in France, England, and the Netherlands. The French Ambassador, the Duke of Mirepoix, invited Philidor for his weekly chess dinners. In 1751 Philidor left England for Prussia, playing before King Frederick (Frederick the Great) at Potsdam. He then visited Berlin where he played 3 blindfold games simultaneously, winning them all. He then returned to England. In November 1754 he returned to France after being gone for 9 years. He started composing music again. He did not return to England until 1772. He applied unsuccessfully for the post of court composer at Versailles. A rumor had started that nobody could be a chess master and compose good music, so his church music was not really his own. His church music was not accepted by the French royalty because Philidor added an Italian influence to it, so he turned to comedy opera. In 1755 he beat Legal in a chess match at the Cafe de la Regence. On February 13, 1760, at age 33, he married Angelique Richer (1736-1809). He had 5 sons and 2 daughters with her. Condition: Some rubbing to extremities, some light foxing, gift inscription on front end paper else a very attractive copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

L'ouvrage comprend 2 tableaux repliés, 7 cartes gravées sur cuivre dont 6 dépliantes, ainsi 20 que planches dont 19 coloriées à la main, gravées à l'aquatinte d'après les dessins de Louis Choris et Johann Friedrich von Eschscholtz entre autres, soit : 4 portraits d'indigènes, 4 vues à double pages, dont une scène d'intérieur, et 11 planches de papillons. Texte en lettres gothiques (Fraktur). Édition originale du Voyage dans l'océan du sud et au détroit de Béring, première expédition scientifique du navigateur russe Otto von Kotzebue dans les mers du Sud. Elle fut financée par le comte Romanzoff (Nikolaï Roumiantsev) ; à bord du Rurik, Kotzebue (1787-1846), accompagné de savants parmi lesquels le poète et naturaliste Adelbert von Chamisso, navigua de Kronstadt vers Copenhague puis Plymouth, Teneriffe et de là vers le Brésil, le Chili, puis Kamchatka. De là, il découvre le golfe qui porte son nom, passe le Détroit de Béring à l'été 1816, explore la côte nord de l'Amérique et navigue vers les Îles Sandwich et vers les îles de la Micronésie. L'expédition de Kotzebue contribua de manière essentielle à la connaissance de l'Alaska, de la Californie d'Hawai et de la Micronésie. En Polynésie, il revendiqua la découverte de trois îles, Tikei, Takapoto et Tikehau. Pendant la première moitié du XIXe siècle, de nombreux grands voiliers effectuèrent le trajet entre Saint-Pétersbourg et les territoires du Nord-Est ; on a appelé cette période « l'ère des circumnavigations russes », inaugurée en 1803-1806 par l'amiral Krusenstern (1770-1845). C'est d'après les instructions de ce dernier que Kotzebue réalisa ses deux grands voyages (le second en 1823-1826), dont le but était d'établir un Atlas de la mer du Sud qui se substituerait aux cartes plus anciennes, notamment à celles d'Arrowsmith, devenues obsolètes. Les deux premiers volumes de cette publication décrivent l'itinéraire du Rurik : ils contiennent, à la fin, une analyse de l'amiral Krusenstern lui-même, des remarques sur les maladies qui ont touché l'équipage durant les trois ans de la traversée par Eschscholtz, embarqué comme médecin de bord. Le volume III, contient les remarques d'Adelbert von Chamisso (1781-1838) sur l'histoire naturelle et le langage, avec un vocabulaire comparatif. La même année, le poète, Français d'origine émigré en Prusse après la Révolution, publia à son tour son journal de voyage ; Reise um die Welt : Tagebuch. Rousseurs pâles au texte et aux planches, légère auréole angulaire sur quelques cahiers. Sabin 38284. Brunet III, 693. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      1821 1243 - A Paris, de l'imprimerie de P. Didot, 1821, , 2 volumes in-folio, [4]-4-XII-268 pages + [4]-251-[3] pages, 3 cartes aux limites colorées, 1 tableau dépliant 143 planches, soit 6 en bistre, 11 en couleurs et 126 en noir (39 au tome I et 87 au tome II), demi-veau fauve, dos lisses et filetés, Première édition en librairie, très rare ; les Monuments anciens et modernes de l'Hindoustan ont paru à l'origine en 26 livraisons, publiées à partir de décembre 1811. L'ouvrage ouvre sur la préface datée de septembre 1821. Complet de toutes ses planches, dont plusieurs (tome I) calquées d'après des miniatures indiennes, des plans et des vues, 24 étant gravées d'après l'artiste britannique Thomas Daniell (1749-1840). 11 planches sont rehaussées en couleurs (les plans des pagodes de Siringam et de Djembakrichna sont en noir dans notre exemplaire). Avec les 3 cartes de l'Inde : l'Hindoustan et ses divisions politiques en 1812 ; au temps de l'empereur Aureng Zeyb (Aurangzeb) en 1707 ; et au temps de la mort de l'empereur Akbar en 1605 (et non 1805 comme écrit dans le cartouche). Louis-Mathieu Langlès (1763 1824) étudia les langues orientales – l'arabe et le persan – à l'École Centrale. Il fonda l'École spéciale des langues orientales, dont il fut le premier directeur de 1796 à 1824, et où il enseigna le persan et le malais. Il fut à la fois éditeur – on lui doit la publication du dictionnaire mandchou-français de Bertin – et bibliophile averti ; il réunit une bibliothèque des plus complètes de son temps sur la géographie et les langues de l'Orient. À l'exception de quelques contributions et de quelques articles, Langlès ne publia que très peu en tant qu'auteur ; sa monographie des monuments de l'Hindoustan est le seul ouvrage qu'il ait lui-même signé. Rousseurs éparses. Une galerie de vers en marge de quelques feuillets au tome I, sans atteinte au texte. Brunet, t. III, 819. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An Essay on the Production of Wealth.

      London: Longman, Hurst [& 3 others in London],, 1821. Octavo (134 × 212 mm). Bound in modern half tan morocco, marbled sides, brown label to spine lettered gilt, motifs to spine gilt, marbled sides. Former library copy with the withdrawal stamp of Rosenburg Library, Galveston. Occasional light spotting to contents, an excellent copy. First edition of this important work by one of the first economists to attribute the production of wealth to the joint action of three instruments of production: land, labour, and capital. Spiegel writes that "Torrens's theory of value contains both a critique, one of the earliest, of Ricardo's labor theory of value, and as a positive contribution a value theory of his own. He denied the validity of the labour theory value in a multifactor economy and, as Lauderdale had done before and as Bailey was to do again shortly, refused to participate in the search of an invariable measure of value. To him, value is a more relation between goods, not between the quantities of labor embodied in them but between the quantities of capital, including the outlay for wages, invested in their production. If competition equates the rates of profit throughout the economy, then, so Torrens argued, goods must exchange in proportion to the capital invested in them, with an adjustment to take account of the different durability of capital" (The Growth of Economic Thought, p. 347). Torrens (1780??-1864) was born in Ireland; he wrote around ninety books and pamphlets on economics, politics, and social questions, including Thoughts on the Catholic Question (1808) in which he supported Catholic emancipation, and An Essay on the External Corn Trade (1815), in which he "discovered the principle of comparative advantage in international trade and shared with Ricardo and Malthus the discovery of the law of diminishing returns" (ODNB).

        ALS to ?Mr. HobHouse? (sic).

      [1821] 1821 - Probably written from Brocket Hall, undated, but almost certainly during the summer of 1821. (According to André Maurois, Caroline?s ?horror of the conventional? meant dating letters ?heaven knows what day? - or not at all.) 38 lines on 3pp. 8vo. Caroline?s affair with Byron lasted only a few months early in 1812, but her obsession with him lasted until her death in 1828. She had married William Lamb, son of Lord & Lady Melbourne, in 1805. Hobhouse had known Byron since their college days, and remained his closest friend; he was best man at Byron?s wedding and was executor of his will, and keeper of ?incriminating? letters from the women who had been intimate with Byron. His relationship with Caroline could hardly have been a close one, despite the implications of Caroline in this letter. Hobhouse had talked Byron out of eloping with Caroline in 1812, and went to see her on Byron?s behalf after the publication of Glenarvon in 1816. In 1819 Caroline campaigned strongly for her brother-in-law George Lamb against Hobhouse in the Westminster election (though Hobhouse was returned to Parliament the following year). Hobhouse held a restraining hand over possible publication of her ?journal? and Byron?s letters to her by ?counter-blackmailing? Caroline with similar threats about her own letters which were in his possession. The letter offered here appears to be written at the beginning of what Doris Langley Moore describes as ?Caroline?s degringolade? which accelerated after Byron?s death in 1824: she surrounded herself with mementoes of him ?talking about him by the hour, far from truthfully .? ?I did yr commission but as I came away here immediately after it may perhaps have appeared to you that I neglected it - I shall apply again on my return to Town if it is not sent to yr sister (my daughter) .? What the commission could be is a mystery, more so because of Caroline?s reference to ?yr sister?, (who could be Joanna, Hobhouse?s half sister) but certainly not Caroline?s daughter - she had none. ?pray send me the lines Ld Byron wrote to Mr. Moore upon his going away in the Boat. Col Comad (?) & a number of people have them they are therefore not sacred and I wish for them but only like to ask you -? This request refers to one of several poems sent to Moore by Byron but not published until later - possibly ?My boat is on the shore? 1816. ?I hear the greatest praise of the Tragedy - will he be annoyed at its having been acted.? This refers to Elliston?s unauthorised production in 1821 of Marino Faliero at Drury Lane where Caroline?s brother-in-law George was on the Committee. Byron was indeed annoyed, but at the same time disappointed by the adaptation?s lack of success. ?pray burn my letter and do not shew it to any one. I am come here to remain (in) this delightful weather quiet and happy - which I do not think really can be the fate of any one in that Blessed city you represent - come and see me some day & believe me most truly yr friend Caroline Lamb? As a footnote, Caroline concludes with further ingratiation, reporting that ?William praisd yr speaking more than once . you know he differs in politics - therefore I think you will be pleased to hear the praises of an opponent? Before Byron?s death in 1824, Caroline ?the tireless traitor? continually attempted to re-establish contact with him - ?any sort of contact, benign or malevolent? Clearly, despite all that Hobhouse had done to protect his friend from Caroline, she hoped that he could still be a go-between. It was not to be. After Byron?s death, Caroline became ?giddier and wilder always muddled either with Brandy or Laudanum?. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Topography of Athens with some Remarks on its Antiquities.

      London: John Murray, 1821 - Octavo . Original green cloth-backed drab boards, paper label to the spine. Boards somewhat rubbed and with some damp-staining at the top edges, spine sunned and the paper label chipped, pale browning to the text-block, occasional spotting, hinges carefully repaired, spine relined, but overall a very good copy, judiciously restored and well-preserved in the original boards. Engraved frontispiece and 8 folding plates. Half-title bound in. First edition. "The basis for modern topographical and archaeological studies of the city. A very important work" (Blackmer). Trained at the Royal Military Academy, Leake served for three years on the garrison at Antigua before joining the British military mission to the Ottoman empire in 1799. He accompanied an Anglo-Turkish expedition overland to Egypt in 1800, seeing action at the battle of al-Khanka and the siege of Alexandria in 1801, before returning home via Greece in 1802. Between 1805 and 1810 he travelled extensively through Greece and the Levant, acting as liaison with Ali Pasha in an attempt to influence the vizier to support Britain's actions against the French in the region; "The mission was not a complete success: increasingly, Leake felt his life was threatened by Ali Pasha and eventually he left" (ODNB). During Leake's residence in Greece he met Byron who found him: "taciturn', ill-dressed and quite unlike an Englishman of this world". Back in London, "Colonel" Leake as he was universally known, was a frequent contributor to learned journals, eight of his papers appeared in the Classical Journal between 1814 and 1822, and twenty in the Transactions of the Royal Society of Literature between 1829 and 1851, and this together with the publication of nine books, including the present, secured him a place, despite his "singular modesty", as "a well-respected member of the unseen college of intellectuals, politicians, and wealthy individuals which flourished in early nineteenth-century London". Leake's core interests were the modern Greek language, Greek topography and numismatics, but overall "one cannot overestimate Leake's importance as an observer of the state of Greece in the 19th century, and the value of his descriptions of the country" (Atabey). Surprisingly uncommon in commerce, particularly so in boards, the Atabey copy, in contemporary calf bound without the half-title, made £2500 hammer in 2002. Atabey 689; Blackmer 971; Weber I, 127.

        As the legal question in respect to the Performance of Lord Byron?s Tragedy is still to be discussed, . Folio.

      J. Tabby, Printer, Theatre-Royal, Drury Lane. 1821 - A single sheet printed on cheap greenish paper; sl. chipped & creased at edges, with traces of one old fold. A good copy. Elliston?s unsigned self-justification is described by Christopher Murray in his biography as ?one of his famous handbills? It is headed ?Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, Monday, April 30, 1821? and was unknown to Arnott & Robinson, in whose bibliography it is related to items 3847 and 3848. Elliston, the manager of Drury Lane, obtained a printed copy of Byron?s play, having failed to get permission from Byron himself or John Murray to stage the work. With nominal permission from George Lambe on the Drury Lane Committee, Elliston submitted a heavily censored text to the Lord Chamberlain for licensing: ?we have so curtailed [it] that I believe not a single objectionable line exists? (This text is now in the Huntington Library.) The play was staged on 25th April 1821 with a nondescript and under-rehearsed cast of John Cooper as Marino, Wallack as Bertuccio, and Mrs West as Angiolina. Elliston in this bill states that ?No impression could have been more forcible: no applause more genuine, or perfect? but contemporary reviews were unfavourable and hostile, the public disapproving and the receipts less than might have been expected. After the first performance John Murray obtained an injunction in Chancery prohibiting further performances before April 30th, but Elliston?s position was legally correct, and he issued this piece of effrontery, poorly printed at the Theatre?s own press, before the five further performances, taking full advantage of Byron?s exile. CBEL 3 - attributes to Byron a ?Letter to R.W. Elliston on the injustice and illegality of his conduct in presenting Lord Byron?s tragedy Marino Faliero? (1821).

        MEMOIRS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION, FROM ITS COMMENCEMENT TO THE YEAR 1776, INCLUSIVE; AS RELATING TO THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA: AND OCCASIONALLY REFERRING TO THE STATES OF NORTH-CAROLINA AND GEORGIA

      Charleston, 1821. Publisher's blue paper boards, rebacked at a later date in paper. Boards bumped on corners. Very good, untrimmed. Provenance: Arthur Middleton, Jr. (signature on front endpaper); Library of Congress duplicate (inked stamps and book label). A basic source for the history of the American Revolution in the southern colonies, based largely on material the author inherited from his father, William Henry Drayton, who was an active leader of the Revolution. The author served twice as governor of South Carolina, and was deeply interested in its history from an early age. This history of the early stages of the Revolution in South Carolina was the product of his retirement and published a year before his death. It remains one of the standard works. One of the maps shows forts Sullivan and Moultrie, while the other shows the positions in the 1776 campaign in the Carolina upcountry against the Cherokees. This copy belonged to Arthur Middleton, Jr. (1795-1853), the grandson and namesake of South Carolina signer of the Declaration of Independence, Arthur Middleton, one of the first Americans to travel as an artist in Italy and paint the Italian countryside.

        The Topography of Athens with some Remarks on its Antiquities.

      London: John Murray,, 1821. Octavo . Original green cloth-backed drab boards, paper label to the spine. Engraved frontispiece and 8 folding plates. Half-title bound in. Boards somewhat rubbed and with some damp-staining at the top edges, spine sunned and the paper label chipped, pale browning to the text-block, occasional spotting, hinges carefully repaired, spine relined, but overall a very good copy, judiciously restored and well-preserved in the original boards. First edition. "The basis for modern topographical and archaeological studies of the city. A very important work" (Blackmer). Trained at the Royal Military Academy, Leake served for three years on the garrison at Antigua before joining the British military mission to the Ottoman empire in 1799. He accompanied an Anglo-Turkish expedition overland to Egypt in 1800, seeing action at the battle of al-Khanka and the siege of Alexandria in 1801, before returning home via Greece in 1802. Between 1805 and 1810 he travelled extensively through Greece and the Levant, acting as liaison with Ali Pasha in an attempt to influence the vizier to support Britain's actions against the French in the region; "The mission was not a complete success: increasingly, Leake felt his life was threatened by Ali Pasha and eventually he left" (ODNB). During Leake's residence in Greece he met Byron who found him: "taciturn', ill-dressed and quite unlike an Englishman of this world". Back in London, "Colonel" Leake as he was universally known, was a frequent contributor to learned journals, eight of his papers appeared in the Classical Journal between 1814 and 1822, and twenty in the Transactions of the Royal Society of Literature between 1829 and 1851, and this together with the publication of nine books, including the present, secured him a place, despite his "singular modesty", as "a well-respected member of the unseen college of intellectuals, politicians, and wealthy individuals which flourished in early nineteenth-century London". Leake's core interests were the modern Greek language, Greek topography and numismatics, but overall "one cannot overestimate Leake's importance as an observer of the state of Greece in the 19th century, and the value of his descriptions of the country" (Atabey). Surprisingly uncommon in commerce, particularly so in boards, the Atabey copy, in contemporary calf bound without the half-title, made £2500 hammer in 2002.

Some waterstaining in lower margins of title -page of preliminary leaves. Light browning in first 35 leaves. Overall in good to very good condition. x, 294 pp., 7 engraved plates. *** First Edition in Portuguese, considerably more difficult to obtain than the second, published the following year.

There is also a plate showing the Inquisition removing the sentence of excommunication from D. João IV, and another titled "Filippe III Rei d'Hespanha" (i.e. Filipe III of Portugal, who was Filipe IV of Spain at the time Portugal declared independence in 1640?), in which the Spanish King consults with inquisitors in a palace while the fires of the Inquisition can be seen through an open door. This is an unacknowledged translation of Lavallé's @Histoire des Inquisitions religieuses d'Italie, d'Espagne, et du Portugal, first published in Paris, 1809. An English translation appeared in London, 1816. The work was placed on the Index in 1825. Innocêncio da Rocha Galvão, the translator, a native of Bahia, was elected to the General Assembly for Bahia in 1836 and acclaimed President of State in the 1837 revolution.*** Sacramento Blake III, 281-2.

        Analyse du jeu des échecs : avec une nouvelle notation abrégée, et quarante-deux planches où se trouve figurée la situation du jeu pour les renvois et les fins de partie. Nouvelle Édition. A laquelle on a joint la figure et la marche des différentes pièce

      Philadelphia: Chez J Johnston, libraire-editeur. Imprimerie de Lafourcarde, 1821 150 pages with 42 color imprints in green, black and red and one wood cult illustrations of chess piece. Small octavo (7" x 4 1/2") bound in quarter leather with raised spine bands and gilt lettering to spine. (Hagedorn: 6; Bibliotheca van der Linde-Niemeijeriana:457) Later edition of Phildor's work first published in 1749.Fiske noted that the paper, typography and general appearance of the work prove to have been printed in Euripe and probably Belgium. But despite its spurious imprint, Hagedorn felt that it required inclusion in his bibliography ofChess in America to 1859. He goes on to suggest that the problems of its pedigree have yet to be solved. America had at that time achieved no fame in the chess world that would make a book from the United States attractive to foreign players. It does not seem to be based on any known American work. He suggest that the answer might be found in the publishing records of early nineteenth century Belgium.In 1736 at the age of 10, Francois-Andre was exposed to chess by the musicians who played chess during spells of inactivity. Cards were forbidden to pass the time, so chess was played. He learned the game by watching the band members play. He later visited the Cafe de la Regence in Paris and spent much of his time playing chess there. In 1737, at the age of 11, his first music composition, a religious piece, was played before King Louis XV. He left the Chapel Royal choir in 1740 when his voice changed. In 1740 he went to Paris where he earned a living by copying music and giving music lessons. In 1741 Philidor was being instructed by M. de Kermur, Sire de Legal (1702-1792), the leading French chess player. Legal initially gave Philidor rook odds. For the next three years Kermur taught Philidor until Philidor was too strong for his teacher. By 1750 Philidor was considered the strongest player in France, England, and the Netherlands. The French Ambassador, the Duke of Mirepoix, invited Philidor for his weekly chess dinners. In 1751 Philidor left England for Prussia, playing before King Frederick (Frederick the Great) at Potsdam. He then visited Berlin where he played 3 blindfold games simultaneously, winning them all. He then returned to England. In November 1754 he returned to France after being gone for 9 years. He started composing music again. He did not return to England until 1772. He applied unsuccessfully for the post of court composer at Versailles. A rumor had started that nobody could be a chess master and compose good music, so his church music was not really his own. His church music was not accepted by the French royalty because Philidor added an Italian influence to it, so he turned to comedy opera. In 1755 he beat Legal in a chess match at the Cafe de la Regence. On February 13, 1760, at age 33, he married Angelique Richer (1736-1809). He had 5 sons and 2 daughters with her. Condition:Some rubbing to extremities, some light foxing, gift inscription on front end paper else a very attractive copy.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Fouque").

      Nennhausen, "am Gründonnerstag [d. i. 24. III.] 1821. - 1 S. 4to. An den Schriftsteller Johann Rochlitz in Leipzig, dem er Beiträge zu dessen neuem Almanach "Jährliche Mitteilungen" (1821-1824) verspricht: "[.] Wills Gott, so schicke ich Ihnen noch vor Anfang Mai den Beitrag für die Mittheilungen. Er heißt: 'Der Todesschuß, eine Kriegsgeschichte['], und gründet sich auf einen Mythus aus dem siebenjährigen Kriege, der in dem Regimente, worin ich meine ersten Waffen führte, dunkel hin und wieder ging. Weil er aber nur eben als Mythus erzählt ward, glaube ich ihn auch nach meiner eignen Ansicht nutzen zu können, und bin damit schon in mir ganz zu Stande, so daß er nur das Aufschreiben gilt. Doch freilich: auch das will Zeit und Weile haben. Daher kann ich mit Bestimmtheit nur die erste Maiwoche für die Vollendungszeit meiner Arbeit angeben. Sind Sie damit zufrieden? Hierbei folgt die Sendung von unserm alten guten Truchseß. Schelten Sie nicht allzu sehr über die Verspätung. Ich bin jetzt unglaublich überhäuft. Heute schreibe ich nur an Leute Ihres- das heiß Unsregleichen [.]". - Für Fouques Beitrag dankt Rochlitz unterm 30. Mai: "Sie haben die an sich schon interessante Sage durch Ihre Darstellung so zu heben und zu beleben gewußt, daß man davon nicht ablassen kann, bis Sie selbst davon ablassen. So wird sie ein wahrer Schmuck des Buches [.]" (Briefe an Friedrich Baron de la Motte Fouqué, Berlin 1848, S. 309f.). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Elements of the Art of Packing, as applied to special Juries, particularly in cases of Libel Law.

      London: Effingham Wilson,, 1821. Octavo (211 × 125 mm). Recent blue morocco-backed cloth boards, red morocco label. In very good condition. Without the final advertisement leaves listing Bentham's books for sale. First published edition, originally printed in 1810, of Bentham's criticism of English libel law, which he had always detested and which more than once stood in the way of the free publication of his opinions. When the work was written, the law's injustice had recently been made obvious in a series of prosecutions for libelling the Duke of York. The Art of Packing contains many bitter animadversions on the Judges, and Romilly, who read the manuscript, warned Bentham that the attorney-general would be certain to prosecute both author and publisher under the very law the work condemns. Bentham accepted Romilly's advice not to sell it openly, though he gave away copies to his friends. The leaf of Advertisement to the present edition states: "In regard to the Author, all that need be said is ?- that it was not by him that it was … kept back; and that it is not by him, or at his instance, that it is now put forth. If, on either accounts, it were desirable that the causes of its being thus long withheld should be brought to view, those causes would afford a striking illustration of the baneful influence of the principles and practices it is employed in unveiling, and presenting in their true colours."
