        Marino Faliero, Doge of Venice [bound with] Werner, A Tragedy.

      London: John Murray, 1821. Tall octavo, missing both half-titles, 'Marino Faliero' without terminal ad.; contemporary green half morocco, gilt, Attractive volume of two important works by Byron.First edition, first issue of Marino Faliero: the Doge's speech on page 151 consists of only five and a half lines (Byron added seven new lines for the second issue) and page 154 has only twenty-one lines; in the second issue there are twenty-five lines. Set in Venice in 1355, it is the story of 'a man of talents and of courage' and, as the preface and appendix attest, of a figure who fascinated Byron.It is bound with the first edition, first issue of Werner (without imprint or 'The End' on the terminal page). Dedicated 'To the illustrious Goëthe', it is one of Byron's most important works, and again takes as its motivation the tragedy of the great man assailed by the forces of the world. Byron notes in the preface, 'When I was young (about fourteen, I think) I first read this tale, which made a deep impression on me; and may, indeed, be said to contain the germ of much that I have since written'.

      A. et W. Galignani|& P. Didot, 1821. - A. et W. Galignani & P. Didot, à Paris 1821, in-16 (10x17,5cm), 7 volumes reliés. - Prima edizione collettivo parigino, stampati su presse di Didot. Un frontespizio ritratto. Leganti metà periodo il dolore nero negli angoli. Indietro con i nervi decorato con ferri freddi e rulli caldi e reti. Reti sulle stoviglie. Tutta la carta nuova e nero, anche se molto rara, pallido macchie dei margini sparsi. Bellissimo esemplare, ben collegato. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Première édition collective parisienne, imprimée sur les presses de Didot. Un portrait au frontispice. 8pp. de catalogue des livres en langue étrangère chez Baudry au début du tome 1. La première édition collective des poésies de Scott à Edimbourg date de 1820. Reliures en demi chagrin noir d'époque à coins. Dos à nerfs ornés de fers à froid et à chaud, de roulettes et filets. Filets sur les plats. Ensemble au papier bien frais et blanc, malgré de très rares et pâles rousseurs éparses en marges. Bel exemplaire, bien relié. Walter Scott fut célèbre en tant que poète bien avant de l'être en tant qu'inventeur du roman historique. Sa poésie fut particulièrement apprécié au début du XIXe siècle en remettant au goût du jours les anciennes ballades écossaises sur lesquelles il fonda sa poésie personnelle et romantique. Ce sont ses recherches sur l'ancienne Ecosse qui l'orientèrent peu à peu vers le roman, mais le succès de Lord Byron n'est pas non plus innocent à l'abandon progressif de la poésie dans l'oeuvre de maître écossais. Détails : Tome 1 : The Lay of the Last Minstrel. Tome 2 : Marmion. Tome 3 : The Lady of the Lake. Tome 4 : Rokeby. Tome 5 : The Lord of the Isles. Tome 6 : Thomas the Rhymer. Tome 7 : The Vision of Don Roderick - Halidon Hill - Ballads, and Miscellaneous Pieces. 2 ex libris, Miss Odell et Blanche de Chateaumorand.

        A Letter to the Right Honourable Viscount Sidmouth, in Refutation of Statements made by the Hon. Henry Grey Bennet, MP in a pamphlet "On the Transportation Laws, the State of the Hulks, and of the Colonies in New South Wales".

      London: Richard Rees, 1821. Octavo; in later three-quarter brown morocco by Morrell. A handsome copy of this rare book: Governor Macquarie's only published work, which appeared in the year of his dismissal. In this important text he replies to a pamphlet by the MP Henry Grey Bennet in which Bennet complained, as part of the orchestrated campaign to unseat Macquarie as governor of New South Wales, that Macquarie had been guilty of illegal and high-handed actions, and had failed to carry out a policy really reformatory of the convicts. Macquarie's eloquent reply did not save him: after twelve years of virtual dictatorship, he was relieved of the governorship in December 1821. This was his only published work, and probably the most important text relating to Macquarie and his involvement with New South Wales.This is H.L. White's copy from the library at Belltrees. A fine copy.

      John Murray, London 1821 - 4to (10 3/4x8 1/4), period marbled boards, rebacked with calf spine, spine label, illustrated with 14 aquatint or engraved plates, 6 charts & maps (4 of them folding), [8], xxix, [3], 310, [2], clxxix, [1], + [1] ad pp. Lacks errata slip present in the first edition, minor wear to old boards, light offset to some of the charts, old library label on front pastedown. A very nice clean copy. Handsome second edition of Parry's (1790-1855) first voyage seeking the Northwest Passage. This edition contains lots of information and illustrations about the journey that took place between May 1819 and October 1820. In Seeking a Northwest Passage the Hecla and Griper commanded by Parry "sailed up Baffin Bay, through the Lancaster Sound and the Barrow Strait to the south side of Melville Island where they wintered (Winter Harbour), and returned to England by the same route the next year. The expedition discovered and penetrated a short distance into Prince Regent's Inlet, discoverred Banks Island, and surveyed the south shores of Barrow Strait." Parry gives a lot of detail about all the discoveries, and how he prepared the ship for wintering. He even talks about scurvy and snow blindness, and in one of the appendices gives the reader a feel for the daily work routine. Arctic Bibliography 13145. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Thèbes. Memnonium - Vue du péristyle du tombeau et des débris de la statue colossale d'Osymandyas, prise de l'ouest

      1821. Veduta esterna, animata da personaggi al centro, delle rovine del Tempio di Ramses II° (Ramesseum - tomba di Ozymandias) nella Necropoli di Tebe; a dx i resti del colosso di Ozymandias. Veduta incisa all'acquaforte su lastra di rame, inserita nella monumentale opera Description de l'Egypte, II° edizione dal 1820-29 voluta da Luigi XVIII, importante risultato culturale dell'occupazione francese in Egitto per il periodo che va dal 1798 al 1801. Bonaparte decise di invadere queste terre per controllare le vie commerciali verso l'india ed assestare in questo modo un duro colpo all'economia britannica. Durante questa operazione, il Nostro favorì l'attività di numerosi artisti, ingegneri, matematici e naturalisti per registrare e catalogare con estrema precisione le costruzioni e i monumenti egiziani nonché la flora e la fauna. Il risultato di questo immane sforzo, che per la pubblicazione coinvolse quasi duemila tra artisti e tecnici oltre a quattrocento incisori, fu l'opera "Description de l'Egypte, ou recueil des observations et des recherches qui ont été faites en Egypte pendant l'expédition de l'armée française", che offre una globale visione scientifica dell'antico e moderno Egitto, nonché la sua storia naturale. La Description ebbe grande influenza sul movimento orientalista pittorico dell'ottocento e diede un contributo fondamentale alla diffusione dell'Egittologia. Numerosi edifici rappresentati in queste tavole sono stati completamente distrutti nel tempo. Piega editoriale

        De la Colonie de Frederiks-Oord, et des Moyns . traduction d'un manuscript u General-Major van den Bosch . avec une preface.

      - Gand, Houdin 1821. Octavo, uncut and unopened in the remains of original plain wrappers (stitching loose); lxxii,110pp and two plates. It has been argued that van den Bosch's Benevolent Society and this first paupers' agricultural colony at Frederiksoord (begun in 1818) are less an experiment in utopian idealism than the model for the modern prison farm. Certainly from the two plates (one is a plan and view of a colonist's house, the other a birds-eye view of part of the colony) it looks, from this distance, less than utopian - bleak is the word I'd use. Still, being a Lowlands pauper just after the Napoleonic wars can't have been much of a picnic. Federiksoord was, to be fair, less punitive than the younger colonies at Veenhuizen where inmates were walled in to prevent escape but, looking at the dreary wastelands of Drente sretching out in every direction, it is hard to imagine where to escape to other than the bottle. Van den Bosch's record in introducing forced agriculture to the Dutch East Indies has won him few accolades from post-colonial historians but there is no doubt that his intentions here, while hardly charitable, do share some attributes of social reform with contemporaries like Robert Owen. Baron de Keverberg (Charles Louis Joseph I believe - his younger brother, also Baron, seems to have been named Charles Frederick Joseph; they were both government administrators and active social reformers at the same time but our Baron has the more distinguished history) has added a lengthy preface and notes to his translation of Bosch's manuscript, roughly doubling the work.

        NOTES ON CHEMISTRY TAKEN FROM THE COURSE OF LECTURES BY PROFESSOR SILLIMAN, YALE COLLEGE, 1819 - 1820. By John Goulding, Member of the junior class [manuscript title]

      [New Haven, 1821. [62]pp. Quarto. Original three-quarter morocco and boards. Light wear to binding. Minor foxing. Very good. Manuscript notebook in the hand of Yale College student John Goulding, capturing lectures in chemistry taught by Professor Benjamin Silliman, Sr. Goulding (1797-1860) received a medical degree from Yale in 1824 and spent his life as a Connecticut physician in nearby Stratford. Silliman was a professor of natural sciences at Yale and a leading figure in American science in the 1820s. Part one of the manuscript contains lecture notes from 1819 to 1820, comprised of twenty-nine leaves of notes covering fifty lectures. A second section covers lectures sixty- six through seventy, and yet a third section, which begins at the rear of the volume, contains four more leaves of notes from January 1821. There is a manuscript index on the front pastedown which indicates topics and the corresponding lecture numbers. Topics include Heat, Evaporation, Elementary Bodies, Carbonic Acid and Alkalies, Earths, Sulphur, Carbon, and others. In our experience, lecture notes from this period are scarce in the marketplace, most having long ago perished or ended up in institutional collections. A valuable insight into the teaching style and content of an early American scientist, as well as what a 19th-century student thought worth noting.

Clark 1821 First published edition of Shelley's first lengthy poem, with the full unexpurgated text. 8vo: [2, title page],3-89[text],[2,fly-title Notes with publisher's statement on verso],93-182 [notes in French, Latin and Greek]pp. Without the very rare poetical dedication to Shelley's first wife and the final publisher's advertisements (identical in both respects to the Tinker copy, which is also unmutilated and printed on Whatman paper). Original drab paper-covered boards sympathetically rebacked, later paper spine label. Printed on fine thick Whatman paper, probably one of the "elegantly printed" copies referred to by the publisher in some early advertisements (See Forman 23: "the ordinary ones are not of a high quality . . ."). A splendid copy in original boards, text clean, binding tight and secure with faint marks to back cover. Forman 22-23. Granniss 19. Tinker 1888. NCBEL III, 314. Ashley Library V p.150; Hayward 225; Wise, A Shelley Library p.92 Fine ¶ Preceded by an edition of some 250 copies privately printed in 1813, but "unknown until [this] piratical reproduction of it in 1821 (which Shelley vainly tried to suppress by an injunction) excited attention, and [the poem] obtained a celebrity long denied to his maturer and more truly poetical writings." (DNB v. 52, p. 33) The dedication to his former wife was particularly embarrassing to Shelley, since his marriage to Harriet ended in 1814, and she committed suicide in 1816. Forman notes regarding this edition that "some copies contain the whole text and notes intact, while others have a few of the most aggressive passages mutilated by omission of words and even verses [mutilations, when present, occur on pp. 36, 54, 55, 65, 77, 82, 146-48, and 171, with various assertions in the notes replaced by printed sequences of dashes]. Queen Mab's literary text consists of nine cantos and seventeen notes. Six of these notes comprise extended prose meditations on free love, on how Necessity functions in the spiritual and physical universe, on atheism (which reiterates Shelley's views in The Necessity of Atheism), on the relationship between Christ and the dogma of Christianity, and on vegetarianism."

        Trial of John M'Dougall & James Menzies, Before Sir John Connell...

      1821. A Brazen Case of Maritime Insurance Fraud in Scotland [Trial]. M'Dougall, James, Defendant. Menzies, James, Defendant. Trial of John M'Dougall & James Menzies, Before Sir John Connell, Knt. Judge Admiral of Scotland, For Casting Away a Vessel, The Friends of Glasgow: And of John M'Dougall, And Archibald M'Lachlan, For Abstracting Goods from a Vessel Called the Mary, And Afterwards Scuttling Her. Glasgow: Printed by Young and Gallie, For Maurice Ogle, 1821. 34 pp. Lacking half-title. Octavo (8" x 4-3/4"). Disbound stab-stitched pamphlet. Minor edgewear, light soiling to exterior, moderate toning, light foxing to a few leaves. A scarce title. $750. * Only edition. The well-insured ships owned by M'Dougall and Menzies had a suspicious tendency to founder. This was not a problem for the firm. Indeed, insurance payments enabled it to prosper. The present case involved two ships that were built by the firm, then scuttled for insurance. The Friends of Glasgow, with a cargo of coffee for Hamburg, and the Mary, with a cargo of calico cloth for Trinidad. Providentially, and just like previous scuttlings, the captains and crews were saved. M'Dougall was indicted for insurance fraud. He successfully faked insanity at his trial and escaped with a light sentence: banishment to Botany Bay for the rest of his life.

        Marino Faliero, Doge of Venice. An historical tragedy, in five acts. With notes. The Prophecy of Dante, a poem. FIRST EDITION, 1st issue.

      John Murray. 1821 Half title, final ad. leaf. Uncut in sl. later half tan calf by C.H. May of London, spine with raised bands & gilt devices. Armorial bookplate of Gilbert Compton Elliot. t.e.g. v.g.Randolph p.73; Wise II.29-30. With the Doge's Speech on p.151 in 5 lines.Neatly tipped into the prelims are three printed playbills, in excellent condition, relating to the peculiar circumstances surrounding the first performance of the play.Byron had always insisted that the piece was not intended for the stage. In a letter written to John Murray in the Autumn of 1820, he stipulated 'I thought I had told you long ago, that it never was intended nor written with any view to the stage' (Letters, vol. V, p81). Later in the year he reiterated the sentiment: 'His [the Doge's] speeches are long; true - but I wrote it for the closet (ibid. p90).' His wishes were again expressed in the introduction to the printed play, where he stated categorically, 'I have had no view to the stage'. Despite Byron's wishes, Robert Elliston, the manager of the Drury Lane theatre, obtained a printed copy of Byron's play, and it was rushed on to the stage on 25th April 1821 with a hastily assembled and under-rehearsed cast which included John Cooper as Marino, Wallack as Bertuccio, and Mrs West as Angiolina. Although he had failed to gain the blessing of either Byron or John Murray to stage the work, having obtained 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 first playbill (not in Arnott & Robinson), dated Wednesday, April 25th 1821, is the original printed announcement of this first performance: 'This evening ... His Majesty's Servants will perform (for the first time) Lord Byron's Tragedy, Marino Faliero, Doge of Venice.'The second handbill (Arnott & Robinson, 3848), headed Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, April 26th, 1821, is the first printed indication that the decision to stage the play did not sit favourably with Byron and his publishers: "Lord Byron's Tragedy of Marino Faliero, was received, last Night, with the Applause and Acclamation which had been anticipated from the high genius of its distinguished Author. Its repetition would have been announced for this Evening, as a matter of course; but certain Persons, on grounds at present incapable of being understood, and which remain to be explained and justified, have thought fit to obtain an INJUNCTION in CHANCERY, against the Representation of the Play." The injunction had in fact been obtained by John Murray, and it prohibited, with immediate effect, any further performances of the play. Elliston, with the law technically on his side, issued this indignant (unsigned) riposte. Printed at the Theatre's own press , and taking full advantage of Byron's exile, Elliston bemoaned the temporary prohibition of the tragedy, and expressed confidence that it would soon be offered to the public once more: '...the further performance of the Tragedy must for the present moment be suspended. It is conceived, however, that the Impediment thus thrown in the way ... can be of very short duration, and that the Piece will, before long, be again exhibited with the brilliant success which attended its performance yesterday Evening'. By the 30th of April, in a handbill headed 'Renewed Performance of Lord Byron's Tragedy' Elliston was once again able to announce the imminent performance of Marino Faliero. Signed 'Theatre Royal, Drury Lane, Monday, April 30, 1821' this is not in Arnott & Robinson. Elliston, with the injunction now lifted 'under the authority of an order by the Lord Chancellor', stated that 'Nothing has been done on the part of the Theatre, in this affair, which has not, in numberless instances, occurred before...'. Elliston was keen to underscore the positive impression the play had made: 'No impression could have been more forcible: no applause more genuine, or perfect'. However, contemporary reviews indicate that Elliston's adaptation was not favourably received, and the production was not a financial success.

        De la Colonie de Frederiks-Oord et des moyens de subvenir aux besoins de l'indigence par le défrichement des terres vagues et incultes.

      Gand: J. N. Houdin, 1821. Octavo, uncut, in wrappers. First French edition: history of the formation of an early socialist society in Europe.This is a French translation from the Dutch of a text by the reformer van den Bosch, who, along with his Societé de Bienfaisance set up the colony of Frederiks-Oord in an attempt at social regeneration. In a movement similar to the kibbutzim of the twentieth century, the Societé advocated reintegrating the disenfranchised and neglected by allotting them barren tracts of land which they could renew through their own labour. Within Frederiks-Oord all are given equal rights, but all must also submit to the communal impetus in the formation of 'un état laborieux, mais productif, une existence honnête et indépendante.'Like so many utopian societies of the nineteenth century, an unquestioned faith in progress and innovation combines with an inherently positivistic notion that through work comes freedom and societal harmony. Throughout, there is a tension between blunt economic appraisals of the individual and idyllic portrayals of the community as a fantasy of ease and prosperity. Creased and generally worn paper wrappers, but in good original condition.

        "Neue Modifikation des Lichtes durch gegenseitige Einwirkung und Beugung der Strahlen, und Gesetze derselben" in Denkschriften der Königlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften zu München für die Jahre 1821 und 1822, Vol. VIII, pp. 1-76

      [For the Fraunhofer article]: two engraved plates (two double-page & one folding) & four lithographed plates (one folding). [12 plates for the entire volume]. Large thick 4to, orig. orange boards, printed paper label on spine, uncut. [Munich: 1821]. The entire journal volume, with the first appearance of Fraunhofer's paper "Neue Modifikation des Lichtes…," the first quantitative study of diffraction phenomena. "In 1821 and 1823, shortly after Fresnel's studies of interference phenomena had received general attention, Fraunhofer published two papers in which he observed and analyzed certain diffraction phenomena and interpreted them in terms of a wave theory of light. In the 1821 paper he discussed his examination of the spectra resulting from light diffracted through a single narrow slit and quantitatively related the width of the slit to the angles of dispersion of the different orders of spectra. Extending his observations to diffraction resulting from a large number of slits, he constructed a grating with 260 parallel wires… "Although David Rittenhouse and Thomas Young had previously noted some effects of crude diffraction gratings, Fraunhofer made the first quantitative study of the phenomena. The presence of the solar dark lines enabled him to note that the dispersion of the spectra was greater with his grating than with his prism. Hence, he examined the relationship between dispersion and the separation of wires in the grating. Utilizing the dark lines as bench marks in the spectrum for his dispersion determinations, he concluded that the dispersion was inversely related to the distance between successive slits in the grating. From the same study Fraunhofer was able to determine the wavelengths of specific colors of light."-D.S.B., V, p. 143. A very fine and fresh copy, seemingly printed on thick paper, and in as-new condition. From the Wittelsbach library of the dukes and kings of Bavaria.

        Analyse du jeu des échecs: avec une nouvelle notation abrégée, et quarante-deux planches où se trouve figurée la situation du jeu pour les renvois et les fins de partie. Nouvelle Édition. A laquelle on a joint la figure et la marche des différentes pièce

      Philadelphia: Chez J Johnston, libraire-editeur. Imprimerie de Lafourcarde, 1821. 150 pages with 42 color imprints in green, black and red and one wood cult illustrations of chess piece. Small octavo (7" x 4 1/2") bound in quarter leather with raised spine bands and gilt lettering to spine. (Hagedorn: 6; Bibliotheca van der Linde-Niemeijeriana:457) Later edition of Philidor's work first published in 1749.Fiske noted that the paper, typography and general appearance of the work prove to have been printed in Europe and probably Belgium. But despite its spurious imprint, Hagedorn felt that it required inclusion in his bibliography of Chess in America to 1859. He goes on to suggest that the problems of its pedigree have yet to be solved. America had at that time achieved no fame in the chess world that would make a book from the United States attractive to foreign players. It does not seem to be based on any known American work. He suggest that the answer might be found in the publishing records of early nineteenth century Belgium.In 1736 at the age of 10, Francois-Andre was exposed to chess by the musicians who played chess during spells of inactivity. Cards were forbidden to pass the time, so chess was played. He learned the game by watching the band members play. He later visited the Cafe de la Regence in Paris and spent much of his time playing chess there. In 1737, at the age of 11, his first music composition, a religious piece, was played before King Louis XV. He left the Chapel Royal choir in 1740 when his voice changed. In 1740 he went to Paris where he earned a living by copying music and giving music lessons. In 1741 Philidor was being instructed by M. de Kermur, Sire de Legal (1702-1792), the leading French chess player. Legal initially gave Philidor rook odds. For the next three years Kermur taught Philidor until Philidor was too strong for his teacher. By 1750 Philidor was considered the strongest player in France, England, and the Netherlands. The French Ambassador, the Duke of Mirepoix, invited Philidor for his weekly chess dinners. In 1751 Philidor left England for Prussia, playing before King Frederick (Frederick the Great) at Potsdam. He then visited Berlin where he played 3 blindfold games simultaneously, winning them all. He then returned to England. In November 1754 he returned to France after being gone for 9 years. He started composing music again. He did not return to England until 1772. He applied unsuccessfully for the post of court composer at Versailles. A rumor had started that nobody could be a chess master and compose good music, so his church music was not really his own. His church music was not accepted by the French royalty because Philidor added an Italian influence to it, so he turned to comedy opera. In 1755 he beat Legal in a chess match at the Cafe de la Regence. On February 13, 1760, at age 33, he married Angelique Richer (1736-1809). He had 5 sons and 2 daughters with her. Condition:Some rubbing to extremities, some light foxing, gift inscription on front end paper else a very attractive copy.

        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 Pastorals of Virgil...

      London: 1821. 2 vols., small 8vo, xii (-vii/viii), 12, xxiv (-i/iv), 214 pp; [I], [215]-592 pp. With an engraved frontispiece to each volume, and 230 illustrations including 17 woodcuts and 6 engraved plates by Blake, and four other designs by Blake engraved by others. Old half brown morocco, marbled boards and edges, gilt-lettered backstrips, a little scuffed and worn but internally fine. Unrecorded issue, with a slip pasted over the publisher’s imprint etc. A very fine copy of a scarce work in any condition as it was issued for use in schools. Blake contributed 17 woodcuts to this volume (as well as 10 other plates, of which he engraved six) which were not well received; nor were they well treated by the publisher who cut down the blocks and printed them poorly. Only a few proofs before they were trimmed are now extant. These blocks have remained amongst the most influential woodcuts in the history of British art and their influence can be seen from Calvert and Palmer all the way up to the present day. The blocks were saved by Linnell and were printed not long after Blake's death as separate impressions (perhaps by Calvert), and again in 1977 as a set by Iain Bain. Any impressions are now very hard to find. For a full discussion of this wonderful book, see Essick's masterly monograph A Troubled Paradise... (San Francisco: John Windle, 1999). Bentley, Blake Books, 504. Bindman 602-18. Easson and Essick I, X. Of this copy Essick noted: “There is one, perhaps interesting, variation to the usual collation. You'll observe in the image of the Title Page that prior to sale Thornton has pasted a small printed slip over the pricing details at the foot of the page. Thus it reads: 'At the French and English Juvenile Library, No. 195, (St. Clement's), Strand.) In volume II the original price note has been left intact with just the reference to '15s' obscured. I can't find any other reference to publications under the umbrella of such a Library. The obvious conclusion would be that it was a sales device by Thornton intend to dispose of unsold copies - and might provide a footnote to Blake bibliography.”

        An Historical Account of the Colony of New South Wales.

      London: Rudolph Ackermann, 1821. Folio, with a map and 12 engraved plates, six of them large and folding, the other six full-page; complete with half-title; a very good copy with large margins in later deep brown morocco with gilt spine lettering. A very good copy of the first view book engraved in Australia, an extraordinary collaboration between Major James Wallis, then commander of the convict settlement at Newcastle, and the convicts under his command, notably Walter Preston and Joseph Lycett. The illustrations for Wallis' celebrated and beautiful view book show in great detail scenes in Sydney, Newcastle, and the Hawkesbury River, as well as an Aboriginal corroboree, kangaroos and black swans. In many ways the series represents a celebration of the progress of the colony under Governor Macquarie, and Macquarie himself was very taken with the work.Preston had earlier worked with Absalom West on his famous views of Sydney, while Lycett had only recently been sent to Newcastle after his involvement in the forging of bank drafts in Sydney. At the time, Newcastle enjoyed a fearsome reputation for brutal secondary punishment and was described by Lieutenant Purcell as "the Hell of New South Wales."Wallis had arrived in the colony in 1814 and proved a successful commandant at Newcastle, transforming the shabby convict outpost into an ordered town, mirroring on a smaller scale what Macquarie had achieved in Sydney. Wallis was not a stern disciplinarian, yet seemed to motivate the convicts under his command by virtue of his tireless energy and enthusiasm. He focused the considerable artistic skills of the forgers to produce this series of skilled and remarkable views of the colony: Preston was tasked with working upon the only copper sheets available, intended for sheathing the hulls of ships, a difficult material softer than standard engraving copper.Both Preston and Lycett were pardoned by Macquarie on Wallis' recommendation, in no small part because of their work on this book. When Wallis departed Australia in 1819 he took the plates with him to London where this book was published by Ackermann, complete with an introductory history of the colony and a map of Port Macquarie by the surveyor John Oxley.This is an example of the more complete issue with the addition by the publisher of a preliminary leaf containing extracts from the Sydney Gazette in praise of Wallis' success as commandant of the Newcastle settlement. Frontispiece a little aged, expert paper repairs to one folding plate, occasional light foxing but in generally very good condition.

      (avant 1821). ____ MANUSCRIT antérieur et différent de sa version publiée. Manuel Quimper (Lima, vers 1757 -1844) explorateur, cartographe, officier naval et colonial - il a notamment participé à la cartographie du détroit de Juan de Fuca et des Îles Sandwich - donne dans ce poème son témoignage de la guerre civile au Pérou de 1809 à 1818. Ce manuscrit, très bien calligraphié, est antérieur à la publication imprimée en 1821. Les 10 décima, titrées "Adicion" que l'on trouve à la fin du manuscrit, ont été incluses dans le texte imprimé. Par ailleurs, le "Suplemento", que l'on trouve dans ce manuscrit, est différent et beaucoup plus court que dans la version imprimée, qui a pour titre : "Suplemento en 1821". Enfin, l'exemplaire imprimé de la Biblioteca Nacional de Espana, contient deux décima manuscrites à la fin, des "adicion", que je n'ai pas trouvé dans le manuscrit. Bel encadrement du titre à la plume. Très bel exemplaire. ***** MANUSCRIPT different and earlier from its published version.

The ten "décima", titled "adición" found at the end of the manuscript, were included in the printed text. Moreover, the "Suplemento" found in this manuscript, is different and much shorter than in the printed version, which is titled "Suplemento in 1821".

        Utopiaansche Courant 1-12; Utopiaansche weekblad 1-14 [with] Pleitrede van den schrijver der Utopiaansche courant...

      Amsterdam: A. Vink & H. Moolenijzer, 1819-1821. Three parts; comprising broadsides, unbound quires, and an octavo book (full details below); all uncut, excellent in original wrappers, preserved in blue cloth solander case. Very rare collection of ephemeral Dutch satirical broadsides and pamphlets, voicing criticism of the State through fictitious news bulletins from a utopia located in the Southern Hemisphere.The Utopiaansche Courant was the inspiration of Amsterdam based dissident Jean-Baptiste Didier Wibmer. Born in 1792 and destined for a career in the clergy, Wibmer turned his literary energies to satire and criticism. The Courant mimicked the format of a traders' broadside, printing fictitious reports and dispatches from remote lands including the East Indies, along with information from imaginary and utopian countries including the unknown South Land, Tibur, Nova Zemba, and the like. Some issues include a woodcut of a figure observing the earth through a telescope, the globe clearly marked with five continents named "Afrika, Amerika, Europa, Asie, Utopia". To complete the façade, the Courant also included mock-up advertisements and family notices. The theme throughout was critical of the State, accordingly Wibmer and his publishers were arrested on 28 October 1819 following the printing of the sixth instalment of the Courant. Wibmer's defence lay in the patent absurdity of his writing, which had been deliberately and ambiguously composed to deflect successful prosecution. Wibmer was acquitted, but again landed in court following the resumption of the Courant through numbers 7 to 12. The Pleitrede or Defence was published in late 1819, with an engraved title page featuring Wibmer's portrait silhouette.The Utopiaansche weekblad continued the utopian satire, and was published in 14 parts over 1820-1821. This complete collection, comprising complete runs of the satirical ephemera accompanied by the Pleitrede, is an unusual survival indeed. All parts are very well preserved in original condition, uncut as issued from the press.The collection comprises three parts:Utopiaansche Courant. 12 folded broadside sheets measuring 460 x 270 mm., separately numbered 1-12. Amsterdam, A. Vink, H. Moolenijzer.Utopiaansche weekblad. 14 small quarto quires, continuously paginated [1]-112; separately numbered 1-14. Amsterdam, A. Vink.Pleitrede van den schrijver der Utopiaansche courant; half-title, engraved title, [ii]-xii, 68pp (last blank). Amsterdam, A. Vink 1819.
