        Veduta di porzione degli avanzi dell'Ambulacro del piano terra nel Colosseo

      Rome.. 1821.. Copperplate engraving, 18 1/4 x 15 1/4 inches on sheet size 30 1/4 x 20 1/2. Light scattered foxing, mainly in outer margins, a few 1/4 inch tears to outer edges and chip to upper left corner of sheet (not affecting image), dampstain to upper left margin (outside plate area), pieces of adhesive tape along verso of right edge (not visible from front), soft undulations to paper. A very good impression. Ground level view of a portion of the remains of the Colosseum. This impressive engraving by Luigi Rossini (1790-1857) is from the Le Antichita Romane series, depicting the antiquities of Rome and environs. Carrying on the tradition of Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778) and himself an architect, Rossini's prints celebrated the Classical Tradition and appealed to the well-to-do tourists on the Grand Tour and to architects and designers. The engravings powerfully evoke the glories of Ancient Rome, while also providing the modern viewer with glimpses of this magnificent city in the early 19th century. .

        The Works of William Robertson

      London - T. Cadell, 1821 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The complete historical works of William Robertson, Scottish historian. Containing The History of Scotland during the Reigns of Queen Mary, and of King James VI (Volumes I-III), The History of the Reign of the Emperor Charles V (Volumes IV-VI), The History of America (Volumes VII-IX), and An Historical Disquisition concerning the Knowledge which the Ancients had of India and the Progress of Trade with that Country (Volume X). The History of Scotland was a huge success because Robertson appeared to his readers to move Scotland into the mainstream of polite culture. His study of elocution and style had enabled him to craft prose that was harmonious, balanced, and, above all, correct metropolitan English. In the field of historical writing in particular no one had yet achieved such a magisterial style. Though occupied with church and university, Robertson was also engaged on his next history, the work that he hoped would enhance his European reputation. By the end of 1759 he was firmly decided upon the history of the reign of Charles V. The book's structure initially was a conventional political narrative, related in chronological order and centred on Charles's life and career. After the publication of Charles V, Robertson quickly turned to a new historical project, and on 28 May 1777 the History of America was published in two volumes, again to a very positive reception. Its success was even more marked on the continent, where it was considered Robertson's masterpiece (in Suard's translation), and went through nine editions between 1777 and 1780. Robertson's regained vigour also led him to a new historical work, and so An Historical Disquisition Concerning the Knowledge which the Ancients had of India was published in a single volume on 4 June 1791. The Disquisition falls into two main parts: the first two-thirds is a narrative of the commercial contacts India had with the outside world from ancient times to the sixteenth century; the remainder is a long appendix describing Indian culture. The narrative portion documents, gathers, and summarizes familiar but scattered material; the appendix is broadly descriptive and more innovative, following the pattern developed in the descriptive chapters of the History of America. (DNB)With an account of Robertson's life by Dugald StewartWith frontispiece engraving of Robertson to volume I, and folding maps to Volume VII, VIII, IX and X (six folding plates in total, collated complete). A new edition, complete in ten volumes. Condition: In full calf bindings. Externally sound, though rubbed. Some wear to heads of spines. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are mainly bright, although with some scattered light foxing to the first and last few pages, and spotted in places throughout the text. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        A General History of Birds, 11 volumes, complete with index, bound in 5 thick volumes

      Winchester: Printed by Jacob and Johnson for the author, 1821-1828. First edition. Light rubbing to marbled boards, occasional foxing to some tissue guards only and to a few text pages (generally quite minor), a few plates show faint offsetting to text; overall a very attractive bright and clean copy in near fine condition.. Pp. xxxii, 375, (1); (2), 340; (4), 416; (4), 362, (1); (2), 350, (1); (4), 416; (2), 362, (1); (2), 376, (1); (2), 391, (1); (2), 433, (1); 456; index: (2), 17, (134); with 193 hand-colored copperplate engravings. Early one-half calf leather, spine lettered in gilt and with gilt panel lines and other gilt decorations, over original marbled boards with matching marbled endpapers, most volumes with tissue guards present, thick 4to (10 3/4 x 8 1/2 inches). Zimmer (pp. 376-377) states: 'A new edition of the author's "General Synopsis of Birds," 1781-85 (q.v.), rewritten and enlarged to include the species treated in the two supplements to that work as well as forms discovered since their publication.' This major work attempted to cover all bird species from every part of the known world with special emphasis on Australia and the South Seas. Latham is often known as the "grandfather of Australian ornithology" due to his descriptions of birds collected in Phillip's Voyage to Botany Bay published in 1789. Latham was the first to describe a number of important Australian species such as the lyre-bird, the white cockatoo and the emu. As a founding member of the Linnean Society, Latham was very well connected in ornithological circles in England. This gave him access to many recently discovered bird specimens that reached London from the South Seas, Australia and elsewhere. For a complete collation, see Zimmer 376-377; see also Anker 277-278, Wood 427, Nissen 532 and Fine Bird Books (1990) 114. Attractive bookplate of Thomas Perry on the front endpaper.

      Paris - Pierre Dufart, 1821 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Thecomplete four volumefirst French edition of'L'Italie'byLady Morgan (December 1781 April 1859), an Irish novelist best known as the author of The Wild Irish Girl. Morgan was one of the most vivid and hotly discussed literary figures of her generation. She began her career with a precocious volume of poems. She collected Irish tunes, for which she composed the words, thus setting a fashion adopted with signal success by Thomas Moore. Italy, a companion work to her France, was published in 1821 with appendices by her husband; Lord Byron bears testimony to the justness of its pictures of life. The results of Italian historical studies were given in her Life and Times of Salvator Rosa (1823). Then she turned again to Irish manners and politics with a matter-of-fact book on Absenteeism (1825), and a romantic novel, The O'Briens and the O'Flaherties (1827). From William Lamb, 2nd Viscount Melbourne Lady Morgan obtained a pension of 300. During the later years of her long life she published The Book of the Boudoir (1829), Dramatic Scenes from Real Life (1833), The Princess (1835), Woman and her Master (1840), The Book without a Name (1841), and Passages from my Autobiography (1859). Copperplate ink inscriptions have been left to the half-titles of each volume from the previous owner and have been dated 1827. In French. Condition: Uniformally rebound in cloth. Externally, in excellent condition with just minor shelfwear only. Internally, firmly bound and bright with light foxing throughout. A small ink mark has been left to the text block edge of the second Volume. Overall Condition: VERY GOOD..

      Rarísima primera edición, y a nuestro conocimiento única obra realizada, sobre la vida de la Chilena Catalina de Lisperguer. 1821. Lima. Imprenta de Rio. In 4to. 1 [blanca] + xvi + 130 + 1 ff. + 1 [blanca]. Pergamino de época, lomera con titulo manuscrito, excelente estado. Muy buen ejemplar, ultima hoja arrugada, posiblemente un defecto de impresión, papel fresco y muy limpio. Rarísimo opúsculo en su primera edición. Catalina de Yturgoyen y Lisperguer (1685 ? 1732) pertenece a una de las mas familias mas reconocidas de Chile, su antepasada (parte principal en el juicio por escándalos, maltratos a indígenas e intrigas mas resonante de la época colonial Chilena) Catalina de los Rios Lisperguer, acarreo al nombre la vergüenza y humillación publica, tanto por las denuncias de parricidio, ataques a amantes y seducción de un Cura; resulta posible que la familia, deseosa de limpiar el apellido, haya querido realizar una obra sobre un miembro de la familia de nombre similar y relativamente contemporánea a la peculiar antepasada, para confundir y "deshacer" la leyenda de la Quintrala. La obra comienza describiendo el recientemente independiente Chile, fundamentalmente Santiago; continua con una revisada genealogía de la Chilena, su vida personal y sus virtudes. Las biografías de mujeres impresas en Lima (a excepción de vidas de Santas) son extremadamente raras. Desconocido por Sabin, solo un ejemplar registrado en subasta (Sotheby?s, 1965), no encontramos ningún ejemplar en instituciones publicas de España. No es de extrañarse la rareza, las imprentas americanas en 1821 se dedicaban mas a la publicación de edictos, publicaciones oficiales, y menos a biografías y obras literarias. Palau, 28061.

        Essays on the Formation and Publication of Opinions, and on Other Subjects

      London: Printed for R. Hunter.. 1821 First edition. Bailey's first book which was considered by well-informed radicals of the 1820s to be "the most useful single addition to the moral sciences since the Wealth of Nations" (William H. Wickwar, The Struggle for the Freedom of the Press, 1819-1832, London, 1928, p. 246). The Essays on the Formation and Publication of Opinion were praised by James Mill in the Westminster Review for July 1826 and later by the American Thomas Cooper in the preface of his own Treatise on the Law of Libel and the Liberty of the Press (1830). . Original boards, uncut, neatly rebacked. . Octavo. A few rust stains and spots in blank margins, but a fine, crisp copy. Bailey [1791-1870] was an independent and slightly isolated thinker, who, though generally admiring of Thomas Brown, was a keen utilitarian critic of Scottish common sense. Politically he was a philosophical radical; indeed, he was occasionally described as the 'Hallamshire Bentham,' while in theology he was a devotee of the American theologian Jonathan Edwards" (Dictionary of Nineteenth-Century British Philosophers). Bailey also occupies an important place in the history of economic analysis through his Critical Dissertation on the Nature, Measures and Causes of Value... (1823). This work on Ricardo, rediscovered by Seligman in 1905, was judged by Schumpeter (1954) to be a "masterpiece of criticism" and to lie near the "front rank in the history of scientific economics.

        Recueil des Cartes et des Vues du Voyage en Amerique en Italie et en Égypte fait pendant les Annees 1816, 1817, 1818 et 1819. [With] Voyage to North America and the West Indies in 1817... [and] Travels in Egypt during 1818 and 1819

      Paris [and] London: Delaunay [and] Sir Richard Phillips, 1821. Together 3 volumes. The important original French atlas of lithographs and the first editions of the English text. Atlas vol.: 59 numbered lithographed plates, comprising: lithographed title within oval cartouche framed by 4 allegorical vignettes depicting America, Italy, Sicily and Egypt, by Brocas after Montulé; 2 folding maps, of eastern North America and of the Nile basin, both after Montulé, the first drawn on stone by Moulin; and 56 plates, 14 by Brocas and the remainder by Montulé, after Montulé&#39;s drawings, and printed at the lithographic press of the Comte de Lasteyrie, except pl. 9, printed by Marlet, the English texts with 6 plates for Voyage to North America and 12 plats for Travels to Egypt. Oblong Folio and 8vos, the atlas volume in contemporary, perhaps original, boards with paper label. The English texts in modern wrappers. A splendid copy of this rare early lithographic work documenting Montulé&#39;s early exploratory voyage to the Mississippi region just after the Louisiana Purchase. The set comprises the important original French atlas of lithographs and the first editions of the English text. Édouard de Montulé appears to have first visited North America at the time of the Revolution. In his account, first printed in French in 1821, he relates, in letter form, a voyage from September 1816 to October 1817, from New York to the West Indies, with stops in St. Thomas, Jamaica, and Santo Domingo, and returning north via New Orleans and the Mississippi to the Ohio river regions and the Hudson valley. "The account is significant because it relates Montulé&#39;s experiences during his journey up the Mississippi on board the Vesuvius, which is said to have been the third steamboat to ply the waters of the Mississippi. The boat and its navigation are described in detail. Another distinguishing feature of the narrative is the information it contains about Frenchmen in the United States, especially Napoleonic refugees" (Clark, Travels in the New South, II, 47). The remainder of his account (published separately in the English translation) describes his subsequent travels in Sicily and Egypt. In the preface to the French text Montulé states that he "would have never published these letters without the help of lithography," a new graphic technique whose ease of execution convinced him to share with the public some of the sketches he had made in his travels. He apologizes for not having made use of eminent artists, as the cost would have rendered the work too expensive. In fact his lithographs are expressively executed, full of carefully observed detail, and important for their early date: a number of Montulé&#39;s plates are in fact lithographic "firsts," notably plate 3, the fine view of New York seen from the west, which appears to be the earliest lithographed view of New York City. It is the earliest view of New York listed by John Reps, whose union catalogue of American city views purports to list all separately published lithographic city views of America. (Reps lists this view and Montulé&#39;s small lithograph of a village near Natchez [Mississippi], indicating that these were occasionally sold separately.) Other "firsts" are the depiction of the skeleton of a mammoth in the Philadelphia Museum, several views of Philadelphia itself, a group of unidentified Native Americans of the Mississippi region, an "encounter with a rattlesnake on the bank of the Ohio River," and two views of Niagara Falls. Several lithographs show regions of the West Indies and their inhabitants, and one shows a Native American funeral mound. The English translations, published in London the same year, are illustrated with reduced engraved reproductions of the lithographs. Montulé&#39;s lithographs have been somewhat neglected in the standard repertories of early American prints and bibliographies of American travel books, surprisingly, since his prints predate by several years more celebrated collections of French lithographic views of America (e.g., Milbert&#39;s Itinéraire pittoresque du Fleuve Hudson, published in 1828-1829, and other American-produced examples). The lithographs are equally noteworthy for their origin: they were produced at the lithographic press of Count Charles-Philibert Lasteyrie du Saillant, who had traveled to Munich in 1812 to learn the art of lithography from Senefelder, and whose lithographic press, established in Paris in 1816, vied with Godefroy Engelmann&#39;s for the title of first Parisian lithographic printing establishment.

        To Sir Mark Masterman Sykes Bart. This Plate of his Fox Hounds Breaking Cover, is with great respect dedicated

      York: Published by John Wolstenholme, 1 November 1821. Colour printed mezzotint with added hand colour. Pencil inscription in lower margin identifies the figures in the print. 21 1/2 x 28 1/4 inches. 25 3/16 x 31 3/8 inches. This is a lovely impression of this lively hunting print showing the moment when the hounds bound through the bracken and break cover. Henry Chalon was an accomplished sporting artist whose skill and imagination attracted Royal patronage throughout his career. He exhibited over 190 works at the Royal Academy and prints after his paintings are widely sought after today. This attractive print beautifully exhibits Chalon&#39;s skill as a sporting artist and Ward&#39;s genius as an engraver. Ward produced some of the most beautiful prints of the period, and his delicate engravings epitomize the style and sentiment of the age. Ward was primarily a mezzotint engraver but he also worked in stipple, executing hauntingly delicate prints that capture the soul and character of their subject. He studied under John Raphael Smith and quickly became one of his most distinguished pupils, incorporating his masters&#39; delicate technique into his own distinctive style. Along with his brother James, William was a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy and soon earned the privilege of becoming mezzotint engraver to the prince regent. For any print connoisseur the work of William Ward epitomizes the best of English printmaking. His fine technical skill and inspired artistic imagination combine to create enduring images that speak of the taste and beauty of the age.

        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 Nigera

      London: John Murray, 1821. First edition. 17 coloured lithographs of costume, sport, etc., large folding map. 4to, bound in the rare printer&#146;s boards with original paper spine label lettered in black. xii, 383. A well preserved, handsome and clean copy in the rare original boards, some expected wear to the boards, ccasional minor age evidence. VERY SCARCE IN PRINTER&#146;S ORIGINAL BOARDS. After taking part in the battle of Algiers in 1817, Lyon accompanied Mr. Ritchie, the secretary of the embassy at Paris, on his African travels to find the course of the Niger River and the location of Timbuktu. The expedition was underfunded and had little support. They left Tripoli in March 1819 and reached Murzuk a month later, where both were taken ill and Richie eventually died. Lyon pushed on, despite 133 degree temperatures, lack of funds, and the suspicion of the sultan, and reached the southern border of Fezzan before being forced to return, more dead than alive, to Tripoli. Capt. Lyon, by all accounts a fun loving extrovert, displayed an aspect of personality that was notably rare at the time, this being a genuine interest in the "Natives" of the countries he visited. In an exploit predating Sir Richard Burton&#146;s famous trip to Mecca by decades, wearing Arab/Muslim dress and having learned fluent Arabic Lyon managed to blend in with the inhabitants of North Africa. These skills were of no doubt great help in his effort to get back to Tripoli alive. In spite of the expedition being a complete failure Lyon&#146;s narrative was well received by the public. His writing style is entertaining and informal and he was particularly well know for his skills as a watercolourist, as the plates in this volume reproduced from his own paintings will attest. Lyon later accompanied Parry to the arctic (1821-23), and served as commissioner of the Real del Monte Mining company in Mexico (1825-27).

        Curtis&#39;s Botanical Magazine&#133; Vol. XLVIII. Being the Sixth of the New Series

      London: printed by Stephen Couchman, published by Sherwood, Neely, & Jones, 1821. Volume 48 only, octavo. (9 1/16 x 5 9/16 inches). 84 hand- coloured engraved plates (numbered from 2189-2272, plates #2189, #2194, #2203, #2208, #2217, #2222, #2231, #2232, #2236, #2245, #2250, #2259 and #2264 are folding), by Weddell, and others? after J. Curtis, P. Syme, W. Herbert and others. Contemporary red half morocco over marbled paper- covered boards, spine gilt. A fine representative sample volume from the oldest illustrated botanical periodical still in production. "The reputation of the Magazine has always resided in the accuracy of its portrayal of plants. This pictorial record of garden and greenhouse plants from the temperate and tropical regions of the world has no rival.." (Desmond p.7) William Curtis had witnessed from personal experience that his clients refused to buy folio pictures of unassuming plants (vide. his Flora Londinensis) but he felt that they would subscribe to an octavo work which pictured the showy plants that filled their gardens: from this premise was born the Botanical Magazine in February 1787. The work was immediately successful, was published throughout the 19th and 20th centuries and is still produced to this day. The main glory of the Botanical Magazine has always been the coloured plates. Many of the greatest British botanical illustrators of the last two hundred years have had worked published in this periodical: the majority of the earliest plates are by Sydenham Edwards; other artists who followed in his footsteps include James Sowerby, John Curtis, William Jackson Hooker and, for much of the second half of the 19th century, Walter Hood Fitch. In the 20th century the great tradition was continued by Lilian Snelling, Margaret Stones and others.

Eventually he became employed by the British consul to Egypt as an archeologist, exploring the Valley of the Kings, excavating previously unopened pyramids at Giza and numerous tombs, dramatically impacting the field of Egyptology. His "Narrative" is one of the most compelling descriptions of early exploration in Egypt and the plate volume is "the first English work of any importance to use lithography." (Blackmer).

        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

      London: printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, 1821. 2 parts in one volume, octavo. (8 7/16 x 5 inches). Half-title, general title, 2 part titles. 10 engraved plates (6 folding) after Speechly (8), Samuel Hieronymous Grimm (1) and Major Hayman Rooke (1). (Minor foxing to the plates). 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. 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 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&#39;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.

        Queen Mab

      London: Printed and published by W. Clark, 201, Strand, 1821. Demy 8vo; half-title not called for; integral leaf publisher&#146;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 &#145;12/74&#146; 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 &#145;balance&#146; 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 &#145;To Harriet *****&#146;, 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.

        Heinrich von Kleists hinterlassene Schriften, herausgegeben von L. Tieck

      Berlin: Gedruckt und verlegt bei G. Reimer, 1821. 8vo (19.5 cm; 7.75"). lxxviii, 290 pp. Posthumous publication for the first time of a selection of Kleist&#39;s plays and poetry (he committed suicide in 1811). Tieck, the editor, presents here "Prinz Friedrich von Homburg," "Die Herrmannsschlacht," "Fragment aus dem Trauerspiel Robert Guiskard," and several poems. Kleist&#39;s life was a troubled one financially, psychologically, and creatively. The Encyclopaedia Britannica (11th ed.) characterizes him as "by far the most important North German dramatist of the Romantic movement, and no other of the Romanticists approaches him in the energy with which he expresses patriotic indignation. Later 19th-century blue-green marbled paper&#150;covered boards; foxing and browning as typical of the paper with but a few odd spots additionally, and perhaps six leaves with a stain as from a spill, extending across text but not hampering reading. Very readable in both senses; a decent, solid copy of an important work of German literature.
