The Club had been founded a few days earlier on April 18th and its first meeting held on April 30th.See Sraffa, vol IX, p.182 for a letter to Hodgson 30 March 1822 [1] David Hodgson, a Quaker, partner in the house of Cropper, Benson & Co, merchants at Liverpool, provided evidence on corn prices to the Agricultural Committee of 1821. Ricardo wrote of David Hodgson in a letter to Hutches Trower 21st April 1821 "Mr Hodgson is a merchant and corn dealer of Liverpool, who expends annually a large sum of money in sending people about the country to examine into the state of the crop just before it is reaped. They do so by going from field to field at 2 or 3 miles distance from each other, and actually counting the ears, and weighing the grains in a square foot or yard; by which means they are enabled to compare it with the crops of former years. The last appears to have been an unusually abundant crop, greater than for many years".Sraffa, vol VIII, pp.370-372.

Kotzebue's important second Russiancircumnavigation to explore for a northwest passage is a cornerstone workof Pacific exploration with important descriptions of Hawaii, Californiaand Alaska. Kotzebue had earlier sailed with Captain Kruzenshtem in thefirst Russian circumnavigation, 1803-06. Leaving Kronstadt in 1815, theRurik rounded Cape Hom and visited Chile, Easter Island, and the MarshallIslands. He explored Hawaii, and the North American coast includingAlaska where he discovered the sound that now bears his name. Failing tofind a northwest passage from the Pacific to the Atlantic oceans, he wasforced to turn south where he visited the Marshall Islands, the Marianas,and several other groups of Islands on his return to Europe. Hisdescription of the northwest coast of America is a importantcontribution. The second volume contains a description of California andthe earliest scientific account of the Golden Poppy, California's stateflower. In California Kotzebue also picked up Vassilii PetrovichTarakanov (q.v.), a Russian hunter who had been captured by theCalifornians. Kotzebue's account of his ship's visit to San Francisco Bayin October of 1816 is accompanied by six plates. The third volumecontains the important scientific report of naturalist Adelbert vonChamisso's Bemerkungen und Ansichten, on the voyage's results. It isnoteable for his descriptions and remarks on the climate, flora, fauna,and peoples of California and the northwest coast of America."The workis of great importance in the early exploration of Alaska. "Rich in earlyoriginal source material on Alaska. Kotzebue belonged to that group ofoutstanding Russian naval officers of the first half of the nineteenthcentury, which included Kruzenshtern, Golovnin, Lisianskii, Sarychev, andothers." (Lada-Mocarski). "It was on this voyage that Kotzebue discoveredKotzebue Sound in Alaska, thinking for a time as he sailed east that hehad found the long sought north-east passage" (Streeter). The Hawaiianportion is extensive and contains important observations on life andcustoms during the reign of Kamehmeha I, whose famous "red vest" portraitby Choris is one of the illustrations. As a record of historical import,and as a collection of significant maps and beautiful plates, this workis one of he prime desiderata of Pacific voyages. Three distinct issuesof the first edition were published: eighty-eight copies were producedon very fine "Velin papier" with the plates hand coloured (issue A); anissue on regular handmade laid paper, of which a limited number of copieshave colour ed plates (issue B); and an issue on laid paper with theportrait plates coloured, but the fold ing plates in sepia aquatint(issue C). The present copy is a fine example of the second issuewith the plates hand coloured. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Bolling's Dam, Petersburgh, Virginia

      Philadelphia: published by M. Carey & Son, 1821]. Aquatint by Hill after Shaw, coloured by hand. Laid on archival mat board, 3 inch repaired tear in lower margin, not touching the image. In fine French washline mat. 12 1/2 x 14 1/2 inches. A rare example of a print from an extremely rare work that is now considered to be a 'milestone in American printmaking ... a foundation book for American color-plate publication, being the first publication in the United States of larger colored landscapes essentially scenic in effect" (Koke). This sweeping image of Bolling's Dam, Petersburgh, Virginia is from a suite of twenty plates published under the general title 'Picturesque Views of American Scenery'. The original intention had been to publish 36 plates in six parts but the work was abandoned after only four parts had appeared (published primarily by Matthew Carey & Son). Thomas Ash acquired the rights to the set and republished them in 1835. Any examples from either edition are now rare. Joshua Shaw, a British-born landscape artist of note, was inspired by the magificence of the American landscape ("in no other quarter of the globe are the majesty and loveliness of nature more strikingly conspicuous than in America."). Shaw set out to popularise the picturesque in America. His beautiful images were skillfully interpreted by engraver John Hill and the results can rightly be said to have been one of elements which led to the growth of what became the Hudson River School of landscape painting. The popularity of the Hudson River School from the mid-1820s onwards, paid dividends for the Shaw's work as well and Thomas Ash was encouraged to reprint the series in 1835. Deak 315.18; cf.

        General and Particular Descriptions of the Vertebrated Animals Arranged Conformably to the Modern Discoveries and Improvements in Zoology

      Paternoster Row; Bond Street; Strand: Printed for Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy; Rodwell and Martin; and W. Wood, 1821. Hardcover. Very good. Edward Griffith (1790-1858) was a British zoologist and lawyer, and was an original member of the Zoological Society of London. This work was intended to be the first in a large series, but the remainder of the work was never completed. Here is a spectacular, contemporary half-leather binding with raised and tooled spine bands, tooled spine label, leather corners, marbled paper boards, matching marbled endpapers, and matching marbled text block edges. A striking and beaufiful example of the binders' craft. The binding is worn but intact. Do note that there is a full gutter break at the front endpapers, but the front cover remains fully and firmly attached to the spine and thus repair will be an easy matter of professionally reattaching the spine to the text block. The contents are spectacular, including the profuse color and black and white drawings. A previous owner's name, dated "1848", appears on the ffep, and the same owner's name is inked discretely at the top of the illustrated half-title.

The Edinburgh Review has been the title of three distinct intellectual and cultural magazines. The best known, longest-lasting and most influential of the three was the second, which was published regularly from 1802 to 1929. The second Edinburgh Review, founded in 1802, became one of the most influential British magazines of the 19th century. Started on 10 October 1802 by Francis Jeffrey, Sydney Smith and Henry Brougham, it was published by Archibald Constable in quarterly issues until 1929. It began as a literary and political review. Under its first permanent editor, Francis Jeffrey (the first issue was edited by Sydney Smith), it was a strong supporter of the Whig party and liberal politics, and regularly called for political reform. Its main rival was the Quarterly Review which supported the Tories. The magazine was also noted for its attacks on the Lake Poets, particularly William Wordsworth. Condition: In half-calf bindings with marbled boards. Externally, quite smart, though with some rubbing to the extremities. Five joints starting. Sixteen hinges strained. Internally, firmly bound (though with one leaf of volumeL detached). Pages are bright, though with some foxing, and marks to the endpapers. Slight loss to the edge of one page. Overall: VERY GOOD.

      London,: House of Commons, 24 May, 1821.. Foolscap folio leaf, docket title to rear, early manuscript foliation at top right corner ("199"); very fine, never folded. An interesting official record of the expenditure relating to the establishment of New South Wales and particularly the transportation of convicts to New South Wales. Without doubt this would have been compiled as part of the evidence relating to the Bigge Report and the governorship of Lachlan Macquarie.In striking original condition, this single sheet provides just the sort of detailed expenses which would damn Macquarie, recording sums well in excess of £300,000 for each of the years 1818, 1819, and 1820.

        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 with a Chart of the Routes and a Variety of Coloured Plates Illustrative of the Costumes of the Several Natives of Northern Africa

      Albemarle Street, London: John Murray, 1821. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Good. George Francis Lyon (1795 - 1832) was an Arctic and African explorer. In 1818, he was sent with Joseph Ritchie by Sir John Barrow to find the course of the Niger River and the location of Timbuktu. A year later they had only got as far as Murzouk where they both fell ill. Ritchie never recovered and died there, but Lyon survived and traveled further around the region. A year after he left, he arrived back in Tripoli, the expedition being a complete failure. This book recounts details of that expedition. Upon return, he was promoted and in 1821 - the same year this book was published - given the command of HMS Hecla on his second attempt. Lyon was reputed to have genuine informed interest in the culture and inhabitants of the lands he visited. Wearing Arab/Muslim dress and learning fluent Arabic he managed to blend in with the inhabitants of North Africa. In the Arctic, he was tattooed by the Inuit and ate raw caribou and seal meat with them. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1827. This volume features the original half leather binding over marbled boards with leather corners, marbled page edges, and marbled endpapers. The contents are superior - clean and bright with only light intermittent spotting. The large folding map and all 17 hand-colored plates are present. The only previous ownership marking are some collector notes in pencil on the ffep and a stamp stating "Withdrawn" from "The James Humphreys Collection" on the title page verso. The original binding is preserved, but considerably worn at the edges. The hinges are split and bear a crude leather overlay reinforcement at the top and bottom of the spine, which keeps the boards attached to the binding.

        Original Photograph

      Sixteenth president of the U.S. Pioneering photographer ALEXANDER GARDNER (1821-82) photographed Lincoln on several occasions, and some of his portraits are among the best known of Lincoln poses. Offered here is an original print by pioneering 20th century photography historian/collector FREDERICK HILL MESERVE (1865-1962). Known as "America's first great photograph collector," Meserve saved countless original Brady and other negatives from destruction and assigned numbers to Lincoln photographs ("Meserve numbers") still used today. Heavy stock 8" X 10", n.p., n.y. [ca. 1940s]. Very good. Slightest bit of quite minor edgewear. Well-known studio portrait depicting President Lincoln seated cross-legged and gazing at the viewer, left hand holding an open newspaper and right hand holding his glasses. On the verso, near the bottom, Meserve boldly writes in pencil (as was his habit) in his distinctive hand: "Abraham Lincoln / (Meserve No. 54) / By Gardner Aug. 9, 1863." The immediacy of any Meserve print is startling, for we've grown accustomed to seeing later generation reproductions of this portrait in books and other forms. Whether this print was made off the original negative is not clear -- often Meserve would state so in his pencilled description, but not consistently. A superb, rare piece printed by the preeminent photography historian of the 20th century.

        Ath. Kanakaris is taking possession of the town of Patras."

      Philhellenic: Munich H. Kohler c1835. Tinted lithograph, with modern colour, of Athanasios Kanakaris taking Patras, from Peter von Hess's Album of Greek Heroism, or the Deliverance of Greece / Griechenlands Befreiung ... in XXXIX Bildern.[ First edition.] within decorative borders incorporating captions in Greek, German, French & English. The borders are decorated with guns, swords and helmets with the Greek flag to the left; on the right a crucifix and other emblems of the Christian church; at the top Turkish weapons, laid down, with a fez, and below, sails and naval instruments. The Greek revolution was declared in Patras on March 25 1821, however the Turks retreated to the citadel and would remain there until the city was liberated on 7 October 1828 by the French expeditionary force in the Peloponnese, under the command of General Maison. It is possible that Hess is trying to re write history by suggesting that the birthplace of the revolution was liberated by a Greek force; it certainly seems that politics were heavily involved in the image. Image bright and clean; light spotting to blank borders. Peter( Heinrich Lambert} von Hess 1792-1871, was a German painter, known for historic paintings, especially of the Napoleonic Wars and the Greek War of Independence. In 1833, at Ludwig's request, he accompanied Otto of Greece to the newly formed Kingdom of Greece, where at Athens he gathered materials for pictures of the war of liberation. He stayed nine months in Greece, interviewing heroes and eyewitnesses of the 1821 revolution. His first- hand knowledge of the heroes gives power to his work. He drew 39 historical persons The sketches which he then made were placed, forty in number, in the Pinakothek, after being copied in wax on a large scale by Nilsen, in the northern arcades of the Hofgarten at Munich, [sadly now destroyed]. It should be noted that Hess was not present during the Revolution; the paintings are representations of reported events. many are of Greek victories, or of heroic deaths of the Greek leaders. Not in Blackmer ,Droulia or Contominas. Philhellenic Patras Athanasios Kanakaris

        General and Particular Descriptions of the Vertebrated Animals Arranged Conformably to the Modern Discoveries and Improvements in Zoology

      Paternoster Row; Bond Street; Strand: Printed for Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy; Rodwell and Martin; and W. Wood, 1821. Hardcover. Very good. Edward Griffith (1790-1858) was a British zoologist and lawyer, and was an original member of the Zoological Society of London. This work was intended to be the first in a large series, but the remainder of the work was never completed. Here is a spectacular, contemporary half-leather binding with raised and tooled spine bands, tooled spine label, leather corners, marbled paper boards, matching marbled endpapers, and matching marbled text block edges. A striking and beaufiful example of the binders' craft. The binding is worn but intact. Do note that there is a full gutter break at the front endpapers, but the front cover remains fully and firmly attached to the spine and thus repair will be an easy matter of professionally reattaching the spine to the text block. The contents are spectacular, including the profuse color and black and white drawings. A previous owner's name, dated "1848", appears on the ffep, and the same owner's name is inked discretely at the top of the illustrated half-title.

        Geschichte des ewigen Juden, von ihm selbst geschrieben. Enthaltend einen kurzen und wahrhaften Abriss seiner bewundernswürdigen Reisen seit ungefähr achtzehn Hundert Jahren. Aus dem Französischen

      Gotha, Ettinger 1821.. 2 Bll., 200 S. Buntpapier-Umschlag d. Zt. Barbier II, 781 (zur frz. Originalausgabe); Fromm V, 19668; Soergel, Ahasver-Dichtungen seit Goethe 41; Nicht bei Fürst. - Sehr seltene Übersetzung der im Vorjahr bei Renard in Paris erschienenen angeblichen Autobiographie "Histoire du juif-errant, ecrite par lui-meme". Der schon vielfachst aufgegriffene Topos des Wandernden Juden wird hier durchaus schalkhaft-humoristisch wiedergegeben: "Ich bin ein Israelit, aus dem Stamme Zabulon. Im Jahre drei und dreisig der jetzigen Zeitrechnung habe ich Jerusalem verlassen und bin seitdem unaufhörlich gereist und muß noch bis zum Ende der Welt reisen, Das ist mein Loos". So bewegt sich der Ewige Jude durch die letzten 1800 Jahre Menschheitsgeschichte und gibt im Plauderton seine gesammelten Eindrücke der Dekadenz der Mächtigen wieder. - Ludwig Börne (zu finden in Bd. 6 der Gesamtausgabe von 1829, p. 129ff) hat dem Werk eine längere, fast überraschend wohlwollende Rezension angedeihen lassen. - Unbeschnitten. Tls. leicht fleckig, insgesamt recht gutes Exemplar!

        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 with a Chart of the Routes and a Variety of Coloured Plates Illustrative of the Costumes of the Several Natives of Northern Africa

      Albemarle Street, London: John Murray, 1821. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Good. George Francis Lyon (1795 - 1832) was an Arctic and African explorer. In 1818, he was sent with Joseph Ritchie by Sir John Barrow to find the course of the Niger River and the location of Timbuktu. A year later they had only got as far as Murzouk where they both fell ill. Ritchie never recovered and died there, but Lyon survived and traveled further around the region. A year after he left, he arrived back in Tripoli, the expedition being a complete failure. This book recounts details of that expedition. Upon return, he was promoted and in 1821 - the same year this book was published - given the command of HMS Hecla on his second attempt. Lyon was reputed to have genuine informed interest in the culture and inhabitants of the lands he visited. Wearing Arab/Muslim dress and learning fluent Arabic he managed to blend in with the inhabitants of North Africa. In the Arctic, he was tattooed by the Inuit and ate raw caribou and seal meat with them. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1827. This volume features the original half leather binding over marbled boards with leather corners, marbled page edges, and marbled endpapers. The contents are superior - clean and bright with only light intermittent spotting. The large folding map and all 17 hand-colored plates are present. The only previous ownership marking are some collector notes in pencil on the ffep and a stamp stating "Withdrawn" from "The James Humphreys Collection" on the title page verso. The original binding is preserved, but considerably worn at the edges. The hinges are split and bear a crude leather overlay reinforcement at the top and bottom of the spine, which keeps the boards attached to the binding.

        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.

[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).

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.).
