        Dictionnaire Historique et Bibliographique, abrégé Des Personnages illustres, Célèbres Ou Fameux, De Tous Les Siècles et De Tous Les Pays Du Monde, Avec Les Dieux et Les Héros De La Mythologie

      1821. Paris, chez Haut-Coeur et Gayet, 1821-22. Complete in 4 volumes. x,529; 529-984; 572; 659pp. Nineteenth century half calf, marbled boards (edges a bit rubbed). According to Milsand in his 'Catalogue par ordre alphabétique des ouvrages de G. Peignot' the present work is by Peignot, although he himself denied it. Michaud says: "Laborieux bibliographe et philologue français... Peignot a laissé un fort grand nombre d'ouvrages, qui ont été bien accueillis du public et qui ont contribué à repandre en France le goût de la bibliographie" Peignot, a native of Dijon, was an enormously learned and industrious scholar, whose career included law, librarianship and high academic posts. He wrote on practically everything - literature, philology, archeology, history, biography and bibliography. In the latter field he was often far ahead of his time. Brunet (4, 466ff) speaks of him with admiration mixed with some scepticism and gives a good listing of his publications.

        Marino Faliero, Doge of Venice [bound with] Werner, A Tragedy

      John Murray, London 1821 - Tall octavo, missing both half-titles, 'Marino Faliero' without terminal ad.; contemporary green half morocco, gilt, rubbed at joints and extremities. Attractive volume of two important works by Byron. First edition, first issue of Marino Faliero: the Doge's speech on page 151 consists of only five and a half lines (Byron added seven new lines for the second issue) and page 154 has only twenty-one lines; in the second issue there are twenty-five lines. Set in Venice in 1355, it is the story of 'a man of talents and of courage' and, as the preface and appendix attest, of a figure who fascinated Byron. It is bound with the first edition, first issue of Werner (without imprint or 'The End' on the terminal page). Dedicated 'To the illustrious Goëthe', it is one of Byron's most important works, and again takes as its motivation the tragedy of the great man assailed by the forces of the world. Byron notes in the preface, 'When I was young (about fourteen, I think) I first read this tale, which made a deep impression on me; and may, indeed, be said to contain the germ of much that I have since written'.

        A Narrative of Travels in Northern Africa, In the Years 1818, 19, and 20;

      London: John Murray, 1821. London: John Murray,, 1821. Accompanied by Geographical Notices of Soudan, and of the Course of the Niger. Quarto. Original dark green cloth-backed grey boards, modern facsimile label to spine. Housed in a light brown quarter morocco solander box. 17 hand-coloured lithographs, mainly of costumes, by Hullmandel after Lyon, all bound at the end, and a partially coloured engraved folding map. Several unopened folds. Spine ends somewhat bumped, label slightly tanned, boards a little soiled and worn, very light foxing throughout, short closed tear to inner margin of map. An excellent copy. First edition of this account of the British North Africa expedition led by Joseph Ritchie that sought to reach the Niger from the north. 'During the closing years of the eighteenth century and the first decade of the nineteenth several British expeditions had been sent into the interior of North Africa for the sole purpose of delineating the course of the Niger' (Howgego). Lyon (1795-1832) was a British naval officer serving in the Mediterranean who, while stationed at Malta, volunteered to join Ritchie on his scientific mission. The officer originally commissioned, Frederick Marryat, was unable to do so. The expedition left Tripoli in April 1819 but was greatly delayed at Murzuk, the capital of Fezzan, as Ritchie and Lyon were both taken ill. While Lyon recovered, Ritchie died in late November 1818, succumbing to dysentery. Lyon took over command of the expedition and continued eastwards to Zuila before returning to Tripoli in March 1820. From here, he sailed for England, arriving in London in July 1820. While the mission was abandoned it was not a complete failure, as Lyon brought with him 'intelligence gathered from merchants that the Niger "runs into a lake called Tsaad". He also brought back the first reports of the fate of Hornemann'. Once back in England, Lyon wrote this account of his and Ritchie's journey, with interesting descriptions of the local customs and social life, medical remedies, and natural history of the region.

        Dissertation First: Exhibiting a General View of the Progress of Metaphysical, Ethical, and Political Philosophy, Since the Revival of Letters in Europe, part II

      London and Edinburgh, 1821. London and Edinburgh, 1821 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce early print of this fascinating philosophical essay. Part II of two. Bound in with this is a supplement to the Encyclopaedia Britannica, from Hungary to Jussieu. With several plates depicting illustrations for the supplement. Dugald Stewart (17531828) was a renowned philosopher. For Stewart the role of the philosopher was to elucidate the laws by which human understanding occurred. He gave as examples of such laws the belief in personal existence, the continuation of the personality, and the independent existence of the material world. As a consequence of his concept of the philosopher's responsibility, Stewart conceived of epistemology as an overarching discipline under which could be comprehended all other forms of more specifically directed thinking on individual pragmatic topics. In his historical essay Dissertation Exhibiting the Progress of Metaphysical, Ethical and Political Philosophy, Stewart situated Scottish metaphysics in the context of European thought since Francis Bacon. As a self-conscious alternative to d'Alembert's preliminary discourse to Diderot's Encyclopdie, the Dissertation characterized the history of European philosophy as the emergence and progression of the experimental study of human nature. This progression, Stewart argued, had culminated in the Scottish school which for the first time was putting down secure foundations for an empirical science of man in the fields of epistemology, political governance, political economy, and moral philosophy. Stewart had originally intended his essay for the supplemental volumes to be added to the fifth edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica. DNBCondition: Ina quarter calf binding with marbled boards. Externally generally smart, lightly rubbed in places. Internally, firmly bound. The majority of pages havesome age toning. Generally nice and clean with just a few small spots, and some marks to the advertisment. There are several pencil annotations to the margins, not affecting the text. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        Forty-six manuscript auditors' reports relating to the accounts of Major Thomas Biddle, Paymaster, U. S. Army, St. Louis, Missouri

      [Washington, D.C.], 1821-1831. [Washington, D.C.], 1821-1831. (BIDDLE, THOMAS) Folio and quarto. Ranging from 1 to 4 pp. Some occasional smudges or stains, few documents torn along folds, generally in very good condition. In custom linen clamshell box . Major THOMAS BIDDLE (1790 - 1830), eighth child of Captain Charles BIDDLE and Hannah SHEPARD, younger brother of Nicholas Biddle of the famous Pennsylvania family, distinguished himself as a soldier in the War of 1812 and on 15 August 1814 was brevetted major. In 1820 he was made Paymaster in St. Louis, and served in that office for 10 years until he was killed in a duel with Congressman Spencer Pettis. "The duel - occurred on August 27, 1830 - Spencer Pettis, while electioneering during the senatorial canvass of 1830, attacked the president of the United States Bank, Nicholas Biddle, in a campaign speech. His remarks were immediately taken up by Major Thomas Biddle, paymaster in the U.S. Amy and brother to Nicholas, who went to the hotel of the Congressman and cow-hided Pettis as he lay sick in bed. Subsequently, Pettis, having been re-elected to Congress by a large majority, issued a challenge which the Major promptly accepted. Major Biddle, having the choice of distance by being the challenged person, fixed it at five paces because of his short-sightedness. At dawn, the men met on Bloody Island, their pistols almost touching - so near they stood - and both were struck at the first exchange. Spencer Pettis died the following day and Major Biddle three days later" (East St. Louis Action Research Project website). The archive here relates to the accounts of Major Biddle as U.S. Paymaster in St. Louis, a post he held until his death. The last three documents included here postdate Biddle's death, and are addressed to his widow Anne Biddle

        Log and Commonplace Book Belonging to Commander Edward Porcher, R.N. 1837 - 1875

      Two volumes, small 8vo and small 4to. About 200 pages of manuscript entries. Porcher was born in 1821 and served in the Royal Navy from 1837 until 1868. The smaller volume, titled "Logs - 1838 - 1868" is a collection of abstract logs of voyages Porcher made in fourteen ships during his career. At the back are lists of the vessels, his time served aboard each, and his rank at the time of service. These are followed by tables of weights of chain and hemp, formulae for determining tonnage, and dimensions of masts and sails on "HMS Cleopatra". The binding on this volume is broken and some signatures are loose. The second volume, a small 4to bearing the title "Various Notes" is more interesting. Porcher was apparently one of those gifted draftsmen of whom there seemed to be so many in the 19th century British naval service. These talented artists would adorn logbooks of their journeys with maps and drawings of such high quality that some of the logs are valuable artifacts. Of particular interest in "Various Notes" are lists of the drawings he made in China and the far East, the Mediterranean, and European and American waters. (There are only a couple of sketches in this volume to hint at his skill.) These were apparently of sufficiently high quality that some were accepted by the British Museum. Laid into the book is a signed letter from Anthony Panizzi, Chief Librarian, acknowledging receipt of drawings Porcher made in Cyrene, a well known archaeological site in present-day Libya. Also of interest, among a welter of quotes from famous writers and thinkers, copies of letters, assemblages of facts and such oddities as a method for "measuring the height of trees, buildings, etc." are several pages explaining "Tricks with Cards," and "Magic Tricks." Together the two volumes provide a portrait of a versatile and gifted navy man.

        BRITISH TEXTILE TRADE IN BUENOS AIRES: An Extensive Autograph Letter Signed, from James Hodgson, Merchant at Buenos Aires, to Messrs. Fielden Brothers, Owners of the Cotton-Spinning Firm in Manchester, Regarding the Insurance of the Latest Shipment, with Comments on the Textiles Suitable for Export to South America].

      Buenos Aires 1821 - Buenos Aires, 22 February 1821. Quarto (ca. 25x20 cm). 3 pp. Addressed, sealed and docketed on the fourth blank page, with two postal stamps, including a stamp of "Portsmouth Ship Letter" ibidem. Fold marks, minor hole on the third page after opening, slightly affecting the text, but overall a very good legible letter. An interesting and extensive business letter from James Hodgson, the owner of one of the main British trade houses in South America in the first half of the 19th century. Addressing his partners in Manchester, Fielden Brothers' textile firm, Hodgson describes at length the latest sales of their goods, and settlement with the insurance company ("Lloyd's Company of Underwriter") in a case pertaining to damaged cargo. He also expresses slight critique of the Fielden Brother's production and suggests some improvements: "By the way I should observe that the width of your Prints is somewhat complained of, & I am sorry to say, I fear with some justice, they being only 23 ½ inches. In your next shipment you may put in a Couple of Cases of handsome furniture patterns. I wish also to give you a few very useful instructions, for your future guidance. Your Magda pollams [?], Irish Shirtings & Platillas may be of double pieces or length, say 48, 48x56 yds. Each Where the packets of patterns are very large, they should be divided into several parcels to avoid any tedious notice of the Customs House In case you should ever have to recommend my Establishment to any new Correspondent, I beg you will not mention my terms of Commission to yourselves. Above all, for my just guidance I beg of you to Invoice your goods at their exact price & do me the justice to believe that I only consult your best Interest when I make this request." In a copy of his previous letter from 7th of February 1821 written after the main text Hodgson gives and interesting note on the preferable textiles for the South American market: "The red ground prints are getting out of vogue, and it will not be advisable for you to repeat them. Your next shipment of this article should be red, green, yellow, pale lilac and handsome darkish grounds - all with very bright lively tints. The newest patterns are generally the most favorite. I cannot obtain any tasteful patterns." A very interesting and informative letter. "Hodgson, Robinson & Company (formerly Green & Hodgson) was a major British import/export house trading with South America during the first half of the nineteenth century. The developing markets of South America provided good opportunities for British textile manufacturers and merchants to export their wares, while wool, hides, tallow and dried beef were traded in the opposite direction. James Hodgson went into partnership with Joseph Green of Liverpool in 1818, trading between Britain and Argentina. The partnership was dissolved in 1829 and in the following year Hodgson formed a partnership with John Robinson, his former accountant; both partners were based in Buenos Aires. The partnership lasted until 1844, whereupon James Hodgson returned to Liverpool, although he continued to trade on his own account, and still owned a ranch in the Cordoba province of Argentina" (See: e-catalogue of the John Rylands Library of the University of Manchester). "The partnership of Fielden Brothers was formed in 1816, based at Waterside Mill in Todmorden, West Yorkshire, and it became one of the most important and profitable textile firms in the country. John Fielden, a practising Unitarian, was elected MP for Oldham in 1832 with William Cobbett. He was known for his radical politics, taking an active part in the movement to limit the hours of factory labour and attempting to get a minimum wage agreement for handloom weavers" (See: e-catalogue of the John Rylands Library of the University of Manchester).

William Hogarth (10 November 1697 - 26 October 1764) was an English painter, printmaker, pictorial satirist, social critic, and editorial cartoonist who has been credited with pioneering western sequential art. His work ranged from realistic portraiture to comic strip-like series of pictures called "modern moral subjects". Knowledge of his work is so pervasive that satirical political illustrations in this style are often referred to as "Hogarthian". (Wikip.)

        A Narrative of Travels in Northern Africa, In the Years 1818, 19, and 20; Accompanied by Geographical Notices of Soudan, and of the Course of the Niger.

      London: John Murray, 1821 - Quarto. Original dark green cloth-backed grey boards, modern facsimile label to spine. Housed in a light brown quarter morocco solander box. Several unopened folds. Spine ends somewhat bumped, label slightly tanned, boards a little soiled and worn, very light foxing throughout, short closed tear to inner margin of map. An excellent copy. 17 hand-coloured lithographs, mainly of costumes, by Hullmandel after Lyon, all bound at the end, and a partially coloured engraved folding map. First edition of this account of the British North Africa expedition led by Joseph Ritchie that sought to reach the Niger from the north. 'During the closing years of the eighteenth century and the first decade of the nineteenth several British expeditions had been sent into the interior of North Africa for the sole purpose of delineating the course of the Niger' (Howgego). Lyon (1795-1832) was a British naval officer serving in the Mediterranean who, while stationed at Malta, volunteered to join Ritchie on his scientific mission. The officer originally commissioned, Frederick Marryat, was unable to do so. The expedition left Tripoli in April 1819 but was greatly delayed at Murzuk, the capital of Fezzan, as Ritchie and Lyon were both taken ill. While Lyon recovered, Ritchie died in late November 1818, succumbing to dysentery. Lyon took over command of the expedition and continued eastwards to Zuila before returning to Tripoli in March 1820. From here, he sailed for England, arriving in London in July 1820. While the mission was abandoned it was not a complete failure, as Lyon brought with him 'intelligence gathered from merchants that the Niger "runs into a lake called Tsaad". He also brought back the first reports of the fate of Hornemann'. Once back in England, Lyon wrote this account of his and Ritchie's journey, with interesting descriptions of the local customs and social life, medical remedies, and natural history of the region.

By August 1, 1819, Sir William Edward Parry (1790-1855) had managed to sail westward completely through Lancaster Sound, establishing that it was actually a strait. He then made the European discovery of Barrow Street, which he named after Sir John Barrow. Continuing westward, he reached the south coast of a large island he named Melville Island after Lord Melville. Parry and his men had sailed west of the 110th meridian of longitude, half the distance of the Northwest Passage, and thereby won a prize of £ 5.000, which Parliament had offered as an incentive for the discovery of the Northwest Passage. - (Some spotting and foxing as usual). - Fine.Arctic Bibl. 13145; Hill 1311; Sabin 58860; Stam, Books on ice, p.24.

Na zijn studies in Algiers, werd hij in de Parijse salons opgemerkt door een verhandeling Sur la chronologie d'Herodote (1781). In 1783 maakt hij een zwerftocht door het Nabije Oosten, wat resulteerde in een Herodotiaanse reisbeschrijving Le voyage en Égypte et en Syrie (1787, 2 dln). In 1789 werd hem een mandaat als vertegenwoordiger van de derde stand in de Staten-Generaal toegewezen. Sindsdien paarde hij aan een bewogen politieke bedrijvigheid een vruchtbare carrière als essayist. Vooral het Lockiaanse traktaat Les ruines ou méditations sur les révolutions des empires (1791) was erg populair. In 1793 gaf hij een soort van filosofische catechismus uit: La loi naturelle ou principes de la morale, déduits de l'organisation de l'homme et de de l'universe. In 1795 reisde hij naar Amerika. Hij werd lid van de Académie francaise (1795) en senator (1799), in welke functie hij tegen zijn vroegere vriend Napoleon oppositie voerde. (...). Moderne encyclopedie der wereldliteratuur.

Reliure, corps d’ouvrage et illustrations en excellent état. Petites rousseurs éparses sans atteinte au texte et gravures. Dans « l’Anthologie poétique française du XVIIIème siècle », Maurice Allem écrit que « l’on trouve dans sa poésie quelques uns des traits caractéristiques de son temps, comme le goût du funèbre et le culte de la mélancolie ». Il est vrai que l’académicien Legouvé qui dirigea le « Mercure de France » et mourut fou, du désespoir causé par la mort de sa femme, était un adepte des poèmes élégiaques, élégants et un peu ennuyeux pour les contemporains. Nonobstant, « Le mérite des femmes » eut un succès immense de son temps et on en connaît plus de 40 éditions. Le notre est un exemplaire admirablement préservé dans une reliure romantique de Boutonnat, qui mérite une place de choix dans la bibliothèque de l’amateur(e). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Seventh edition. Adorned with a beautifully engraved vignette to the title page, illustrated by George Cruikshank. For Knox, Britain's readiness to fight was evidence of its corruption and of the prevailing spirit of despotism, a phrase which served as the title of his most polemical and best-known study in political science. The study, which defended the early revolution and its British supporters like Charles James Fox, was published in London in 1795. However, with the French government becoming increasingly tyrannous, Knox soon after attempted to recall the work and thereafter refused publication until an anonymous edition appeared in 1821.

Byron's fame rests not only on his writings but also on his life. He was famously described by Lady Caroline Lamb as mad, bad, and dangerous to know. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm. There is some mild wear to the extremities, including some mild bumping and rubbing. The top of the spine leather of volume2 is missing, as shown above.
