        Chansons, Tome I-II (all) + Chansons Nouvelles.

      Paris, Didot, 1821 + Paris, Plassan, 1825. 8vo. Bound uncut in one nice cont. red hcalf with gilt back. Bdg. w. a few traces of use. Some brownspotting. Printed on good paper. Woodcut vignettes to all three title-pages and several text-vignettes in the last work.. First editions of both parts of Beranger's "Chansons". Béranger's famous and influential song appeared in five parts in all, beginning with the "Chansons morales et autres" in 1816. The two present collections constitute part two and three. The first part from 1816 is extremely scarce, but this second part, merely called "Chansons", is probably the most interesting and noteworthy off all the song-collections, as well as being the most comprehensive. "Une édition plus complète parut en 1821, 2 vol. in 18, Paris, Firmin Didot. Cette édition, résultant d´une souscription patronnée par le banquier Laffitte et A.-S. L- Bérard, fut tirée à 10,000 exemplaires; elle fut pursuivie, et l´auteur, quoique habilement défendu par M. Dupin l´aîné , fut condamné á trois mois de prison et á 500 fr. d´amende." (Brunet 1, pp. 781). The author was prosecuted and condemned to imprisonment for three monts because of the appearance of this edition. The two last parts, "Chansons inédites" and "Chansons nouvelles et dernières" appeared in 1828 and 1833. These two collections contain some of the most important of Béranger's songs, among these the influential Napoleonic ones. His songs develloped from being joyous odes into strong satirical and political songs; -"le gouvernement clérical et rétrograde de la Restauration fut particulièrement visé avec une verve mordante et caractéristique. C'est pour cela peut-être qu'il est un des plus grands créateurs de la légende napoléonienne, car il oppose l'époque glorieuse de l'Empire à la mesquinerie qui lui succéda." (Lafont-Bompiani, I:368). His obvoiusly satirical tone partly explains his great political influence at the time, -he is a master of portraying the Bourbon government, clericalism, the old reactionary nobility, and as a contrast the glorious souvenirs of Napoleon. "Voltairienne, sentimentale mais frivole, politique et satirique mais avec simplicité, évitant toute complication de doctrine et toute morale tragique, la poésie de Béranger est la représentation typique de cette première partie du XIXe siècle où la société est encore imbue des moeurs et des idées du XVIIIe et où le romantisme a peine à effacer complètement les formes littéraires et l'esprit de l'ancien régime." (Bompiani I, pp. 368.).Carteret I:134

Presentation Copy to W H Hooper (Purser on the Hecla) SIGNED "Wm H Hooper Esq with the Author's Kind Regards on the title page, This title has then been gifted and signed by W H Hooper on the fly leaf "J.P. Welsford Esq with the affectionate Regards of Wm H Hooper" also The North Georgia Gazette, and Winter Chronicle is also signed on the title page "S L Hodges - from her friend W H Hooper Purser of the Hecla in ….Expedition - now of the ?? 1821" (Unfortunately the pages of the gazette have been cut down to fit with the volume and as such part of this signature and inscription is missing). "Through the long arctic winter, Parry did everything possible to keep his crew occupied. There was constant activity, plays were acted at the 'Royal Arctic Theatre' and Sabine edited a periodical journal, The North Georgia Gazette, and Winter Chronicle" . This periodical was afterwards published by John Murray, and is bound in with this journal. ON THE FIRST VOYAGE Parry was given command of the Hecla and Griper for his first expedition of 1819. Parry sailed up Baffin Bay and through Lancaster Sound and Barrow Strait to the south side of Melville Island, encountering much less heavy ice than anticipated. The expedition over-wintered at Winter Harbour, on the south side of Melville Island. Freeze-up delayed Parry until August of 1820, but he was still able to continue west to Dundas Peninsula and south to Banks Island before turning to head home to England. Parry's voyage was to be recognized as one of the most important in the history of Arctic exploration: he proved that Lancaster Sound opened a passage to the west, he charted a vast area of the unknown Arctic, and proved that it was possible to spend the winter north of the Arctic Circle without being in grave danger. He was also the first to reach 110 degrees west longitude, which earned him and his crew a cash reward of £5,000. [AB 13145]. The Journal, based on Parry's reports, appeared in 1821, after the rights had been bought by the publisher John Murray for the stunning amount of a 1000 guineas. In the same year this second, corrected, edition was published, followed by German, Dutch and French translations. ON THE SECOND VOYAGE " Sent by the Admiralty to search for a passage along the west coast of Foxe Basin, Parry sailed north of Southampton Island instead of south, the route preferred by previous navigators, and thus became the first to sail through Frozen Strait and confirmed Middleton's discovery of Repulse Bay. In late Aug. having found no passage through Repulse Bay, he explored the coast northward, sailing as far as Ross Bay. In Feb. 1822, Eskimos visited the ships' winter quarters on Winter Island and spent much of the winter in the expedition's company, enabling Parry and his men to make detailed observations on their customs and language. After leaving their winter quarters, they explored farther north equiped with Eskimo maps (ESKIMAUX CHART No 1, No 2 & No 3, facing p. 197, 198 and 252) and found the entrance to Fury and Hecla Strait. Ice prevented their passing through it, but overland journeys confirmed that it led westward to a sea. Parry returned to winter quarters and attempted to sail through Fury and Hecla Strait the following summer. Unsuccessful in this attempt, and fearing scurvy, he then returned home. Sabin 58864.

        Grundlinien der Philosophie des Rechts.

      Berlin, 1821. 8vo. Cont. paper-covered boards w. a bit of wear to capitals and hinges. Minor loss to upper capital. W. handwritten paper-title-label on spine. Internally exceptionally nice and clean w. only occasional minor brownspotting. (2, -the rare additional title-page: Naturrecht und Staatswissenschaft im Grundrisse. Zum Gebrauch für seine Vorlesungen), XXVI, 355, (1) pp. A very good copy.. The scarce first edition of Hegel's seminal "The Outline (or later Elements) of the Philosophy of Right", the last of Hegel's major works, which represents the culmination of a life-long interest in politics and political phenomena. Hegel was perhaps more than any other German philosopher influenced by the French Revolution, and this masterpiece of philosophy constitutes a grandiose attempt to make freedom the foundation of human society. "Taken apart from the rest of his system, Hegel's political philosophy has been much misrepresented by totalitarian propagandists. He was, however, one of the most profound and influential thinkers of the nineteenth century. Theology, philosophy, political theory, all have been radically influenced by his system; Strauss (300), Baur (322), Bradley, Kierkegaard (314), Marx (326, 359), Lenin (392), all came under his spell, and his indirect influence has been limitless."
