        Memoirs of Her Late Majesty Caroline, Queen of Great Britain:

      London - T. Kelly, 1821. London - T. Kelly, 1821 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A scarce edition of Memoirs of Her Late Majesty Caroline, Queen of Great Britain by Robert Huish, illustrated with elegant engravings. With two vignette half titles, eleven of fourteen plates, one alternative plateof Mr Alderman Wood instead of a portrait of the Queen to frontispiece to volume two, with a further ten plates boundto rear of volume two. First edition. In two volumes complete. Caroline of Brunswick-Wolfenbttel (Caroline Amelia Elizabeth; later Queen Caroline) (1768 - 1821) was the Queen consort of King George IV of the United Kingdomfrom 29 January 1820 until her death. Between 1795 and 1820, she was Princess of Wales. In 1794, she was engaged to George III's eldest son and heir apparent, George, Prince of Wales, although they had never met and George was already married illegally to Maria Fitzherbert. George and Caroline married the following year, and nine months later Caroline had a child, Princess Charlotte of Wales. Shortly after Charlotte's birth, George and Caroline separated. By 1806, rumours that Caroline had taken lovers and had an illegitimate child led to an investigation into her private life. The dignitaries who led the investigation concluded that there was no foundation to the rumours, but Caroline's access to her daughter was restricted. In 1814, Caroline left England and moved to Italy, where she employed Bartolomeo Pergami as a servant. Pergami soon became Caroline's closest companion, and it was widely assumed that they were lovers. In 1817, Caroline was devastated when her daughter Charlotte died in childbirth; she heard the news from a passing courier as George had refused to write and tell her. He was determined to divorce Caroline, and set up a second investigation to collect evidence of her adultery. In 1820, George became King of the United Kingdom and Hanover, and Caroline returned to Britain to assert her position as Queen. She became the figurehead of a popular reform movement that opposed the unpopular George. On the basis of the evidence collected against her, George attempted to divorce her by introducing the Pains and Penalties Bill to Parliament, but George and the bill were so unpopular, and Caroline so popular with the masses, that it was withdrawn by the government. The following year, in July 1821, Caroline fell ill after she was barred from the coronation on the orders of her husband. She died three weeks later. Robert Huish (1777 - 1850) was a prolific, but generally poorly regarded, English author of history books, novels, and miscellaneous other works. With bookseller's labels to front pastedown to volume one. Condition: In contemporary half calf bindings with marbled paper covered boards. Externally, sound but with some wear to extremities, rubbing and marks to boards. Joints cracked and cracking to spine to volume two with slight loss to head and tail.

        Memoirs of the Secret Societies of the South of Italy, particularly the Carbonari.

      - London, John Murray 1821. Octavo contemporary calf (front hinge neatly repaired); xvi,235pp and 12 lithographs by Hullmandel, seven folding including a charming large folding view of a meeting. A few spots, a nice fresh copy with half title. First edition; it was written in French, a second language, with the view of being translated and published in London. The attribution to Giuseppe Bertoldi is unlikely as far as I can see; the Risorgimento poet was barely born when this appeared. German librarians confidently ascribe the book to Jakob Ludwig Salomon Bartholdy - the Prussian Consul-General in Rome - and other librarians have attributed it to a Bertoldi without forename.

By the time he retired in 1830, 56 years later at the age of 80, he laid the foundations of the actuarial profession - in fact the term 'actuarial' became attached to the profession because of his title.

        Oeuvres de Le Sage

      Paris - Antoine Augustin Renouard, 1821. Paris - Antoine Augustin Renouard, 1821 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce collection of work from French novelist and playwright, Alain-Ren Lesage. In French. Volume one contains Le Diable Boiteux, volume two contains thefirst part to Gil Blas, volume three contains the second part of Gil Blas, volume four holds Chevalier de Beauchene, volume five contains Guzman D'Alfarache, volume six holds Bachelier de Salamanque, volume seven contains Estevanille Gonzalez, volume eight containsRoland L'Amoureux, with volume nine holding Don Quichotte, volume ten contains the second part to Don Quichotte, volume eleven contains a collection of Lesage's plays, as does volume twelve. Lesage is best known for his comic novel Le Diable boiteux, his comedy Turcaret, and his picaresque novel Gil Blas, which are all present within this collection. Lesage began by translating plays chiefly from Francisco de Rojas Zorrilla and Lope de Vega. Le Tratre puni and Le Point d'honneur from the former and Don Flix de Mendoce from the latter were acted or published in the first two or three years of the 18th century. In 1704, he translated the continuation of Don Quixote by Alonso Fernndez de Avellaneda, and soon afterwards adapted a play from Pedro Caldern de la Barca, Don Csar Ursin, which was successful at court and damned in the city. Lesage was, however, nearly forty before he obtained decided success. In 1707, his farce, Crispin rival de son matre, was well received, and Le Diable boiteux was published and ran to several editions. Lesage altered and improved this play in 1725, giving it its present form. He thereupon altered it into Turcaret, considered his theatrical masterpiece. Edited by Pierre Hyacinthe Audiffret. Whitehead's private library bookplates to the front pastedown of every volume. Complete in twelve volumes. Condition: All volumes bound in half calf with marbled boards. Externally, all volumes are rubbed with wear and some slight loss to some of the spines and extremities. Loss to seven of the spine labels.

This set with Tooley&#39;s second issue points (correct imprints, printer&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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 . . .

Exhibiting a Real Picture of Characters, Manners, &c. in High and Low Life, in Dublin and Various Parts of Ireland. Embellished with Humorous Coloured Engravings , From Original Designs by the most eminent Artists. By a Real Paddy. London: Jones and Co. and J.J. Marks, 1821. First edition. Tall octavo (8 3/4 x 5 11/16 in; 226 x 142 mm). vii, [1, blank], 6-296 pp. Frontispiece and eighteen hand-colored plates by and after William Heath, Henry Alken, and others. Original quarter green cloth over blue paper boards with printed spine label, rebacked with original backstrip laid down. Some rubbing and light soiling to boards, spine label a little chipped, minor soiling to plate margins not affecting image. An excellent copy of a scarcely seen book."Though not so good it is more rare than [Egan&#39;s] Life in London" (Tooley). The last copy to come to auction was, according to ABPC, was thirty-four years ago in 1970."Real Life in Ireland was initially shunned by educated readers and even a quick glance at the language and misdeeds of the central characters, Brian Boru and Sir Shawn O&#39;Doherty, reveal that such a publication may once have been able to cause and give offence. However, Real Life in Ireland is more akin to the works of Flann O&#39;Brien and although written nearly 200 years ago is very readable and very funny."Opening with the discharge of Shawn O&#39;Dogherty from college in Dublin with a small fortune to spend, he is joined from the country by his friend Brian Boru, who along the way is regaled by the stories of Peg O&#39;Shambles, a one-time cockle picker from Ringsend in Dublin, who has fallen on hard times due to her alcoholic husband&#39;s misdeeds. Accompanied by many humorous cartoons of Brian Boru&#39;s adventures, the characters travel from Belfast to make merry in Dublin. While the characters in Real Life in Ireland might be fictitious the places, events and the Hiberno-Irish featured throughout are not. Although a comparison with James Joyce&#39;s travels through Dublin is perhaps hardly appropriate, Real Life in Ireland provides a clear account of Dublin and its inhabitants, as well as the major sights and attractions of its suburbs. Perhaps unintentionally, Real Life in Ireland has left an account of the &#39;real&#39; trials and tribulations of Ireland in the 1820s. For example, the new harbour at Dalkey is rightly criticised as a waste of money and time the long awaited visit of George IV lamented, but not much regretted.""All-in-all...Real Life in Ireland make[s] for a highly entertaining and extremely funny read and has much to recommend it to a modern readership that might be unfamiliar with its kind" (Eneclann).Abbey, Life 282.
