        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

      London: George Eyre and Andrew Strahan, 1821. Very Good. Folio (30cm); pages 569-575. First page yellowed. Disbound. References: Streeter Sale VI: 3694; Soliday, Western Americana I:1204. "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.

        The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent.

      John Murray, London 1821 - Complete 2-volume set. 12mo. Full calf with compartments and gilt spine lettering and spine decorations. viii, 326pp; 343pp, (1p ad). Very good. Original spines expertly remounted. A tight, quite attractive fifth edition of these essays first brought out by Murray the year before -- whose best known contributions are of course "Rip Van Winkle" and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." Of great interest is the bookplate near the top of the front pastedown of Volume I: "Ex Libris / John Ruskin / Brantwood." Ruskin (1819-1900) was of course the greatest art critic of the Victorian age, and Brantwood his glorious estate in England's Lake District. This is Type 2 of his bookplate, designed by William Morris of the Kelmscott Press in 1889, around the time Ruskin suffered a severe physical and mental breakdown. Although this title does not appear in James Reardon's 2012 "The Library of John Ruskin," which lists 2,969 books known to have belonged to Ruskin, much of his library got scattered and reappearances are quite common -- so much so that Reardon is compiling an addendum. Some spurious Ruskin bookplates do exist, identified by Reardon as Type 3, 4 and 6. One leading Ruskin scholar theorized about this copy of the Sketch Book, "it is more a probability than a possibility that the book did emanate from Ruskin (and Brantwood). Conceivably it was something that he might have read in childhood." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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. All joints cracked, with rear board of the first volume and front board of the second volume detached. Internally, generally firmly bound. Pages are bright, with some scattered spotting and offsetting throughout. Overall: GOOD ONLY. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      - Second edition, (iv), xxxiv, 35-46, complete with 48 delicate soft-ground etchings by William Frederick Wells after Wilkinson and printed by Ackermann. A full-margined untrimmed copy in the rare original cloth, rebacked in fine green morocco lettered direct with raised bands gilt-ruled and decorated, with original gilt lettered title on front board, London, for Wilkinson by Ackermann, 1821. * Abbey: 188 ; Upcott: p.131; Bicknell: 73.1. A very scarce example of this key work on the Lake District that exemplifies the region's role within the Romantic sensibility. * Wikinson was a Carlisle-born amateur artist who until 1804 lived with his wife's relatives the Brownriggs at Ormathwaite under Skiddaw. In 1803 he became Vicar of East Wretham in Norfolk and left the north for good. The text was supplied anonymously by William Wordsworth and this later became the basis for his famous Guide to the Lakes of 1820. * "Guide to the Lakes, William Wordsworth's travellers' guidebook to England's Lake District, has been studied by scholars both for its relationship to his Romantic poetry and as an early influence on 19th-century geography. Originally written because Wordsworth needed money, the first version was published in 1810 as anonymous text in a collection of engravings. The work is now best known from its expanded and updated 1835 fifth edition. According to Wordsworth biographer Stephen Gill: "The Guide is multi-faceted. It is a guide, but it is also a prose-poem about light, shapes, and textures, about movement and stillness . It is a paean to a way of life, but also a lament for the inevitability of its passing . What holds this diversity together is the voice of complete authority, compounded from experience, intense observation, thought, and love." Wordsworth was born in the Lake District and spent much of his life living there. Wordsworth and his friends Robert Southey and Samuel Taylor Coleridge became known as Lake Poets not only because they lived in this area but also because its landscapes and people inspired their work. Wordsworth explained his goal to a reader in May 1810, saying, "What I wished to accomplish was to give a model of the manner in which topographical descriptions ought to be executed, in order to their being either useful or intelligible, by evolving truly and distinctly one appearance from another." In 1820, Wordsworth published a second, longer version of the Guide attached to a book of sonnets he had written about the River Duddon. He explained his reasoning as follows: "This Essay, which was published several years ago as an Introduction to some Views of the Lakes, by the Rev. Joseph Wilkinson, (an expensive work, and necessarily of limited circulation), is now, with emendations and additions, attached to these volumes; from a consciousness of its having been written in the same spirit which dictated several of the poems, and from a belief that it will tend materially to illustrate them. (page 214) In 1822, Wordsworth's text was first published as a separate volume. Fourth and fifth revised editions followed in 1823 and 1835." - Wikipedia

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

      - London: published by William Daniell, January 1st 1821 [watermark 1820]. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Daniell. 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 7 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. 7

        Travels in Georgia, Persia, Armenia, Ancient Babylonia, &c. &c. During the Years 1817, 1818, 1819, 1820. (First Edition, 2 Volumes)

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brows, 1821. 2 volume set. FIRST EDITION. Signed binding. Early to Mid-twentieth century three quarter brown calf leather binding signed by J. Larkins. Compartmented, raised bands, tooled leather on spine. Illustrated with two hand-colored portrait frontispieces mounted on paper, 87 plates (some folding), including 5 hand-colored plates, and 2 large folding maps, the plates executed in different media, i. e., aquatint, line-engravings, stipple engravings and numbered I-LXXXVII (lacking plate LXXXIII) with 1 plate unnumbered, light occasional foxing and offsetting, corners bumped, top edges gilt others uncut, an attractive copy. Lacks plate list in volume I as is not uncommon. One of the most substantial books on Persia. Photos available upon request. Sir Robert Ker Porter (1777-1842) had been a court painter in St. Petersburg, and archaeological investigation and drawing were the principal reasons for the author's travels. In this copy the famous portrait of Fath Ali Shah is colored, in most copies it is not. One of Porter's aims was to correct errors in the drawings of earlier travellers such as Chardin and Le Bruyn. From Russia Porter travelled to Tabriz where he met Abbas Mirza with whom he spent a considerable time. He went on to Tehran with Abbas Mirza before going to Esfahan, Persepolis, and Shiraz. In Tehran he had an audience with Fath Ali Shah, with whom he was very impressed. "An intelligent and readable book." One of the greatest mines of information concerning the life and manners of the people of Western Asia at the beginning of the last century, and also with regard to the monuments, inscriptions, and other antiquities then known to exist in Persia and Babylonia, is the magnificent work of Sir Robert Ker Porter," Travels in Georgia, Persia, Armenia, Ancient Babylonia, etc., etc., during the years 1817-20," (Two volumes, London, 1821, 1822) equally remarkable for the "truth in what the author relates," and the "fidelity in what he copies" and illustrates by his numerous drawings, portraits, and sketches. From childhood loving and practising the arts, he had become a famous painter of international reputation, whose eminent talents, striking personality, and final marriage with a Russian princess had secured for him a social standing which enabled him, by his pen and brush, to reach circles hitherto but little influenced by the books of ordinary travellers and the scientific and often dry investigations of men of the type of Otter, Niebuhr, Beauchamp, and Rich. In his popularization of a subject which so far had stirred the minds of only a limited class of people, and in appealing, by his religious sentiment, the manner of his style, and the accurate representation of what he had observed, not less to the men of science and religion than to the aristocratic circles of Europe, on whose interest and financial support the resurrection of Assyria and Babylonia chiefly depended, lies the significance of Ker Porter as a Babylonian explorer. After extensive travels through Georgia and Persia, in the course of which the great monuments of Naqs-i-Rustam and Persepolis had received his special attention.. Signed by Binder. First Edition. Half Calf Leather. Near Fine. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Hardcover.

The work was originally undertaken at the request of the publishers as a revision of William Nicholson's Dictionary of Chemistry, but Ure said that so much of the latter was obsolete that the work had to be rewritten.
