        Épitre a Thouvenin. Imprimerie de Firmin Didot, Paris. 1823. [Bound with:] ----. Chant National [Signed: Lesné, August 1830]

      [Impr. de Chassaigonon]. [N.d.]. First Edition, 2 vols., bound in one, [iv],20; 4pp., with the bookplate of Léon Gruel, later quarter morocco with marbled boards by Gruel, head of spine slightly chipped. The first work forms part of the ongoing row started by Dibdin when he compared current French bookbinding unfavourably with English (in the thirtieth letter of his 'A Bibliographical, Antiquarian, and Picturesque Tour in France and Germany, Vol. II, 1821). The Epistle to Thouvenin (a leading Paris bookbinder of the day) was in response to Dibdin's suggestion that some English bookbinders might come to Paris to teach the French a few useful points. Lesné (1777-1841) was a self taught binder with an enthusiasm for conservation, who took up binding at the age of 27, and worked in Paris from 1804 until his death. Pollard & Potter, 51; Jackson, 61; Windle & Pippin D12. Provenance: Léon Gruel; Pierre Berès.

        PLAYS AND POEMS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, With the Corrections and Illustrations of Various Commentators: Comprehending A LIFE OF THE POET, and an Enlarged History of the Stage, by the Late Edmond Malone. With a New Glossarial Index. [With the important preface by Boswell and the prefaces by Pope, Theobald, Hanmer, Warburton, johson, Steevens, Reed, Malone, Richardson as well as commentary by other illustrious thinkers and writers of the day, and including Rowe’s Life and Malone’s Life of Shakespeare and Commendatory Poems on Shakespeare, as well as extensive notes on the plays, their order and an essay on the English stage et al.]

      London: F.C. and J. Rivington; et al, 1821. 21 volumes. The ‘Boswell’s Malone’ Edition, first thus. With an engraved frontispiece portrait in Volume I from the Chandos portrait. 8vo, handsomely bound in contemporary full smooth tan calf, boards gilt ruled, gilt decorated board edges, spines attractively gilt tooled in panels between raised gilt tooled bands, lettering labels in two panels of dark green and buff morocco, smaller morocco volume labels at the tails, all labels lettered in gilt, a.e.g. A very handsome and stately set in proper bindings, internally very fresh, bindings with very minor age evidence only. A very pleasing set. AN IMPORTANT AND EARLY PRINTING OF THE WORKS. This variorum edition not only forms a fine summery of the cumulative scholarship on Shakespeare during the 18th century but has time and again been called the foundation of modern Shakespearean scholarship. James Boswell, the son of Johnson’s biographer, had a hard task in ordering Malone’s papers - “I may add”, he states in his 50 page introduction, “that it is not everyone who could have deciphered his notes.” Along with all of Malone’s material this set contains three full volumes of scholarly works including the prefaces of all of the major editions of the previous century, more then one life of Shakespeare, Boswell’s life of Malone, histories of the stage, Shakespeare’s will, Coat of Arms and other relative documents to the Bards life and extensive notes on and from the modern editions. In addition to all of this material is the extensive and very useful ‘Glossarial Index’ and an Addenda. No less then 35 publishers joined forces to produce these volumes and it is alone among the variorum editions to include a volume of Poems. Its influence was such that many years later the Sette of Odd Volumes, a renowned bibliophile dining club, limited its membership to 21 stating this in its list of rules; “The Sette of Odd Volumes to consist of twenty one, this being the number of volumes of the variorum Shakespeare of 1821”.

        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).

        Singalesisk skriftlære.

      Kolombo, [Ceylon] 1821 - First and only edition of the first Singhalese grammar in a western language; small 8vo, pp. [2], 16; contemporary black cloth-backed marbled boards, old manuscript label on upper cover; very good. In this works Rask discusses the phonetics and pronunciation of the language and he compares Singhalese with Sanskrit, Pali, Tamil, Telugi and other Asian languages. Rask (1787-1832) was one of the three great philologists (with Grimm and Bopp) of the 19th century, and one of the founding fathers of modern linguistics. "He was the first to point out the connection between the ancient Northern and Gothic on the one hand, and the Lithuanian, Slavonic, Greek and Latin on the other, and he also deserves credit for having had the original idea of "Grimm's Law" for the transmutation of consonants in the transition from the old Indo-European languages to Teutonic. In 1822 he was master of no less than 25 languages and dialects, and is stated to have studied twice as many" (EB, 11th ed.).

        Queen Mab

      London: Printed and published by W. Clark, 201, Strand, 1821. Demy 8vo; half-title not called for; integral leaf publisher’s advertisements at end, verso blank (v. note); pp.182+[ii]; Victorian quarter olive green morocco-faced sheep, ruled black on sides, ruled and lettered gilt on spine; old-rose boards; t.e.g., others uncut. Very slight rubbing to covers; unobtrusive ink scoring in margins, passim, and one or two light pencilled notes, all apparently contemporary; single fox-spot on one margin and a couple of light marginal marks elsewhere, but a nice copy nonetheless of the scarcer, unmutilated issue. From the library of Paul Foot, with his bookplate on the front end-paper and his pencilled note of purchase dated ‘12/74’ on the front paste-down. The first published edition of a work printed for private distribution by Shelley in an edition of 250 copies in 1813. The publisher, Clark, was prosecuted by the Society for the Suppression of Vice and sentenced to four months imprisonment in Cold Bath Fields Prison for issuing the present edition, prior to which he is said to have sold only fifty copies, but on agreeing to give up the remainder of the edition to the Society, he was pardoned. The ‘balance’ of sheets and volumes supposedly given up appears to have been no more, at most, than a token, for Clark continued selling the title with a Bowdlerised text, printed from the same setting of type, in which a number of the most aggressive passages were mutilated by the omission of words and verses, whilst sheets and bound copies of the original issue passed to another publisher, R. Carlile, who re-published them with a cancel title-page in the following year, and again, with another title-page in 1823. Both the unmutilated Clark and the Carlile issues are known in two variants, which as far as is known were published simultaneously, the final leaf being either taken up by Clark advertisements, or containing the dedication ‘To Harriet *****’, which is otherwise omitted from the volume. It seems reasonable to suppose, however, that though the two variants may have been published simultaneously, the dedication was omitted from the volume in error, and introduced in place of the advertisement leaf part-way through the print run, the advertisements thereby being characteristic of the earlier state of text. The present copy is of the un-mutilated variant, and has the advertisement leaf. Buxton Forman, 22 All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

        An act for regulating the fur trade, and establishing a Criminal and Civil Jurisdiction within certain parts of North America

"Behind this act lies the history of the struggle between the Hudson's Bay Company and the Northwest Company of Montreal. From the year 1803 the struggle between the two companies for supremacy in the West and on the Pacific had been a series of murder and robbery. This act gave jurisdiction in all the territories west to the Pacific to the Hudson's Bay Company, which meant that all the vast territory from New York to the pacific, and from the Arctic Sea down to Oregon and North California became the possession of that company. Further, the act made all free traders and members of the Northwest Company outlaws." --Peter Decker in Soliday, Western Americana.

        Journal of a Voyage for the Discovery of a North-West Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific

      in His Majesty's Ships Hecla and Griper Under the Orders of William Edward Parry 1821 - Twoaccounts of the journeys undertaken by William Edward Parry and his crew in the Arctic. Second edition. Sir William Edward Parry (19 December 1790 8 or 9 July 1855) was an English rear-admiral and Arctic explorer, who in 1827 attempted one of the earliest expeditions to the North Pole. In 1818 he received command of the brig Alexander in the Arctic expedition under Captain (afterwards Sir) John Ross. This expedition returned to England without having made any new discoveries but Parry, confident, as he expressed it, that attempts at Polar discovery had been hitherto relinquished just at a time when there was the greatest chance of succeeding, in the following year obtained the chief command of a new Arctic expedition; consisting of the two ships HMS Griper and HMS Hecla. This expedition returned to England in November, 1820 after a voyage of almost unprecedented Arctic success, having accomplished more than half the journey from Greenland to Bering Strait, the completion of which solved the ancient problem of a Northwest Passage. A narrative of the expedition, entitled Journal of a Voyage to discover a North-west Passage, appeared in 1821. Upon his return Lieutenant Parry received promotion to the rank of commander. In May 1821 he set sail with the HMS Fury and HMS Hecla on a second expedition to discover a Northwest Passage, but had to return to England in October 1823 without achieving his purpose. During his absence he had in November 1821 been promoted to post rank, and shortly after his return he was appointed acting Hydrographer of the Navy. His Journal of a Second Voyage, &c. , appeared in 1824. With twenty platesto volume one and thirty-one plates to volume two (collatedcomplete), many ofwhich are folding. Bookplate of W. Boultbee Whall to front pastedowns. Condition: In half-calf binding with marbled boards. Externally sound, though rubbed.

        Malaysia] View from Strawberry Hill, Prince of Wale's Island

      - London: published by William Daniell, January 1st 1821 [watermark 1820]. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Daniell. In good condition apart from some expertly repaired marginal tears. Sheet size: 22 3/4 x 34 3/8 inches. A fine and rare view of "one of the loveliest spots in the Eastern world": the former British colony on the island of Penang, now part of Malaysia. Plate 3 from Daniell's Panoramic Sketch of Prince of Wale's Island, The settlement of Penang, off the north west coast of Malaysia in the Strait of Malacca, was formed by the East India Company in 1786. The British flag was raised there on August 11, 1786 by Captain Francis Light of the Indian merchant service. Light had married the King of Quedah's daughter, and the island was given as her dowry. The island is about 16 miles long and about 8 miles wide with a spine of mountains running east to west. The climate, though tropical, is relatively cool, which is why in 1856 it was described in a world gazetteer as being "one of the loveliest spots in the Eastern world." William Daniell (1769- 1837), nephew of Thomas Daniell, R.A., is best known for his views of eastern scenery. "In 1784 he accompanied his uncle to India, and there helped him with drawings and sketches. On their return in 1794 he worked upon their important publication, 'Oriental Scenery.' Between 1795 and 1838 he exhibited as many as 168 pictures at the Royal Academy and 64 at the British Institute. His earlier exhibits were Indian views, but from 1802 to 1807 he sent many views of the north of England and of Scotland. He published 'A Picturesque Voyage to India,' 'Zoography,' in conjunction with William Wood, F.S.A., 'Animated Nature,' 1807, 'Views of London,' 1812, and 'Views of Bhootan,' 1813, from drawings by Samuel Davis, of the East India Company's service, who visited Bhutan in 1783. In 1814 Daniell began 'A Voyage round Great Britain'; this was published in four volumes in 1825 He painted, together with Mr. E. T. Parris, a 'Panorama of Madras,' and afterwards, unaided, another of 'The City of Lucknow and the mode of Taming Wild Elephants.' He became a student of the Royal Academy in 1799, in 1807 was elected associate, and in 1822 a full member of that body." (DNB) Abbey Travel, II, 525, no. 3
