        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

      printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, London 1821 - 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.

        Two Letters to the Right Honourable Lord Byron

      London - John Murray, 1821 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A scarce copy of the first edition of Two Letters to Lord Byron by the Rev. William Lisle Bowles. Disbound. Scarce. This copy has 32 pages of the complete 104. William Lisle Bowles, 1762 1850, was an English poet and critic. Educated at Winchester and Oxford, Bowles first poems, Fourteen Sonnets, were published in 1789, to a considerable amount of success, from the public and fellow poets such as Coleridge and Wordsworth. After Oxford, Bowles entered the church, and quickly grew in stature. By 1818 he was chaplain to the Prince Regent, and in 1828 he was elected Residentiary Canon of Salisbury. Bowles is perhaps more celebrated as a critic than as a poet. In 1806 he published an edition of Alexander Pope's works with notes and an essay, in which he laid down certain canons as to poetic imagery which, subject to some modification, were later accepted, but which were received at the time with strong opposition by admirers of Pope and his style. His positions were attacked most notably by Byron, Thomas Campbell and William Roscoe. The controversy, facilitated by the Letters, brought into sharp contrast the opposing views of poetry, which may be roughly described as the natural and the artificial. Condition: The binding is firm, with page 9 loose. The boards are missing. The text is incomplete, with 32 pages of 104. The pages are generally clean and bright, with some slight browning to the page edges and the occasional spot. The first page has some further browning, as to be expected. There is an ink number on the title page. Overall the condition is fair..

        Traité des maladies de l'oreille et de l'audition.

      Paris, Méquignon-Marvis, 1821 - 2 vol. in-8; vol.I: (4), XVI, 396 pp.; vol.II: (4), 522 pp., 3 planches dépliantes h.t., demi-basane de l'époque, dos lisses ornés, dos frottés, un mors fendu en tête, rousseurs éparses (souvent faibles, mais parfois assez fortes), planches remontées. Premier traité moderne d'otologie, basé sur 20 ans de recherches. Itard rapporte 172 observations, judicieusement choisies. Il classe sommairement les otites en deux catégories, externes et internes. Il donne une nouvelle classification des pertes de l'audition. Itard affirme, contrairement à l'opinion de son époque, que les pertes de l'audition ne sont pas seulement causées par une paralysie du nerf auditif et ne sont pas toujours complètes. Il imagine des prothèses auditives (conques métalliques, cornet à limaçon) figurées sur une planche. Il simplifie et rationalise le cathétérisme de la trompe d'Eustache, et introduit une méthode de paracentèse. Les trois planches comportent 20 figures. Jean Marc Gaspard Itard (1774-1838), élève de Pinel et de Larrey, devint chirurgien à l'hôpital du Val-de-Grâce, puis médecin de l'Institut des Sourds-Muets de Paris. Il est à la fois l'un des fondateurs de l'otologie moderne et un pionnier de la psychiatrie infantile. Il fut membre de l'Académie de Médecine.

As noted in Tooley, this is a bibliographically complex publication ". . . full of contrarities and difficulties for the bibliographer . . ." This set with Tooley's second issue points (correct imprints, printer's slugs, and title page dates, with identified variations in plate captions for a couple plates in both volumes). Additionally, Volume II here has frontispiece dated 1824 - apparently supplied from that printing, and an added leaf placed after ix (Contents & Directions to the Binder, verso blank) advertising "Real Life in Ireland", with announcement headed "A Word to the Wise" on recto and facsimile title page of the 1822 3rd edition of the title on verso. Regarding the extra plates ("St. George's Day, Presentation at the Levee" and "Tom and Bob Catching a Charley Napping") Tooley says "I have seen them in all issues." Tooley 198. Not a parody of Egan's "Life in London" but an inspired imitation by an author who yet remains unknown. The Cambridge History of English and American Literature says: "Out of the sixty-five imitations of (Life in London) which Egan stated that he had reckoned, the most important was Real Life in London, ., which was published in sixpenny numbers in 1821, with excellent illustrations by Heath, Alken, Dighton, Rowlandson and others. Real Life in London is a pleasanter book than its prototype. Some have held that Egan wrote it; but the author had a purer style, a cleaner mind and a wider knowledge of London than Egan. The book shows many more sides of London life than his . . ." Mild surfaces scuffing to spines and rubbing to corners of both volumes, preliminaries and first couple pages of text in first volume moderately grubby, else text and plates quite clean; second volume with mends to corner tips of title page and first few pages, occasional mends elsewhere, some leaves darkened, overall a very good set [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Months

      London - C and J Oliver, 1821 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Full speckled calf leather binding with gilt detail and titles to spine. A scarce copy of the first edition of Hunt's delightful work on the months of the year. James Henry Leigh Hunt (October 19, 1784 August 28, 1859) was an English essayist, poet and writer. Leigh Hunt was educated at Christ's Hospital, a period which is detailed in his autobiography. As a boy, he was an ardent admirer of Thomas Gray and William Collins, writing many verses in imitation of them. A speech impediment, later cured, prevented his going to university. For some time after I left school, he says, I did nothing but visit my school-fellows, haunt the book-stalls and write verses. His poems were published in 1801 under the title of Juvenilia, and introduced him into literary and theatrical society. He began to write for the newspapers, and published in 1807 a volume of theatre criticism, and a series of Classic Tales with critical essays on the authors. Condition: The binding is tight and firm and both covers are firmly attached. The front inner hinge is strained and the front outer hinge is starting to crack however and the front board if holding by the cords only. There is some minor wear to the extremities including a small chip with loss to the top of the spine and a couple of very mild marks in the leather on the rear board. Internally the book is generally clean and bright apart from scattered spottin in places. There is the occasional handling mark. There is an amorial plate to the front pastedown. Overall the book is in very good condition..

His fee was a guinea a lesson. Under his influence stalemate was accepted as a draw. He was the first great English author on chess. His reputation was high and a revelation to English players. His works were of a pioneering character as to chess and the English language. His first excellent books were <i>A treatise on the Game of Chess</i> Vol 1 and Vol 2 1808. There is a prefix listing books on chess from Damiano onwards and some friendly criticism of Philidor. Vol 1 contains &#147;Different Methods of Opening the Games&#148; then follows 75 Critical Variations.

Born in Paris as the son of a stationer, he became a bookseller&#39;s clerk, and first attracted attention with the first part of his novel Les Amours du chevalier de Faublas (Paris, 1787); it was followed in 1788 by Six semaines de la vie du chevalier de Faublas and in 1790 by La Fin des amours du chevalier de Faublas.

        Capt. Parry's Discoveries in the Polar Regions, 1819-1820. Compiled and Drawn, from the Admiralty Records, by W. Lane, Hydrographer and Teacher of Navigation, Naval Academy, 79, Leadenhall Street, London.

      Printed for, and Published by, Robert Blachford & Co., Chart Sellers to the Admiralty and Honorable East India Company, Navigation Warehouse, 79, Leadenhall Street, [1821]., London, - Rare broadsheet deatiling one of the most important Arctic expeditions Engraved broadsheet, with two engraved maps, fine original hand-colour, paste-over to right hand portion of 'Plan of Lancaster Sound', letterpress text below. Rare broadsheet comprising letterpress title, two engraved maps, the North Pole map is entitled 'Map of the North Polar Regions', the second is titled 'Plan of Lancaster Sound, penetrated by Capt. Parry, in July 1819', the maps were edited from Admiralty Records by W. Lane, a teacher of navigation employed by Robert Blachford. The maps are set above an extensive panel of text of 'Interesting Particulars of the Voyage', recounting Parry's discoveries in the unsuccessful quest for a North-West Passage, ending with his landfall in the Orkneys on 28th October 1820. Although Parry failed to find the elusive North-West Passage, he did establish that a westward route existed through Lancaster Sound. He also began to map the numerous islands through which the North-West Passage would have to be navigated. Beyond this Parry demonstrated that, with sufficient provisions, a ship and crew could winter successfully above the Arctic Circle. The text itself gives some fascinating details of the voyage including: a bear being attracted to the ship by the smell of frying herring (the bear was subsequently shot); the numerous sightings of whales which was very good news for the whaling fleets, though perhaps not such good news for the whales; and the production of plays by the crew when they were trapped in the ice for ten long months. Although not recorded here, the crew also produced their own newspaper, the 'North Georgia Gazette and Winter Chronicle', where, "The Sportsman and the Essayist, the Philosopher and the Wit, the Poet and the Plain Matter-of-fact Man, will each find their respective places". Robert Blachford was a hydrographer and chartseller in the years 1804-1835. He started off in the business with his father-in-law John Hamilton Moore and soon branched out on his own. He published a number of charts during his career, but was never as successful as the likes of Heather, Norie and Imray. COPAC records only one other example of this map: that of the British Library.

Single small round wormhole in inner margin, occasionally touching a letter of text. Still, uncut, clean and fresh; in very good condition. ---- FIRST EDITION. Borba comments, "extremely interesting and important for the information [it] provide[s] about the Portuguese Court and public administration in Rio de Janeiro at that time, and ? very difficult to find." Although nominally a biography, the @Exposição includes much information not found elsewhere about the transfer of the Portuguese royal family to Brazil and contemporary political events.The Visconde do Rio Secco, a wealthy merchant born at Belém, near Lisbon, was a confidant of D. João and often provided financial assistance. Along with Admiral Manuel da Cunha Souto Maior, he was charged with organizing the royal family's move to Brazil in 1807, and once there, held several important positions in the royal household in Rio de Janeiro. He administered the Fazenda de Santa Cruz and served as Director of the Brazilian Bank. His eminent position led to some public opprobrium, which he attempted to counter in this pamphlet and in @Breve exposição do comportamento publico do Visconde do Rio Secco, Lisbon 1821. Innocêncio comments on the @Exposição: "Posto que esta memoria pareça dirigir-se especialmente a elucidar questões pessoaes do seu publicador, é todavia interessante pelas particularidades que encerra no tocante á transferencia da côrte de Portugal para o Brasil, e aos successos politicos do tempo; apresentando noticias curiosas e aproveitaveis, que n'outra parte se não encontrarão." Included with the main text (pp. 1-39) are 4 pages of notes, 28 pages of supporting documents, 9 pages of appendix and a single leaf entitled "Methodo pelo qual se ha de governar o fiel da caixa da emissão para o governo do troco das notas ao povo."After independence the Visconde became a Brazilian citizen and was named first Marquez de Jundiahy. He died in Rio de Janeiro in 1835.---- Valle Cabral 734. Almeida Camargo & Borba de Moraes, @Bibliografia da Impressão Régia do Rio de Janeiro I, no. 848.
