        On the Principles of Political Economy and Taxation

      1821. RICARDO, David. On the Principles of Political Economy, and Taxation. London: John Murray, 1821. Octavo, contemporary full tan calf rebacked, original black morocco spine label, raised bands. $3700.Third edition of RicardoÂ’s most important work, the final one published in his lifetime, with revisions and amplifications to earlier editions.“David Ricardo is without doubt the greatest representative of classical political economy. He carried the work begun by Adam Smith to the farthest point possibleÂ… Ricardo, writing 50 years later than Smith, showed a greater insight in the working of the economic systemÂ… In the opinion of his own contemporaries at home and abroad, Ricardo is acknowledged the leader of the scienceÂ… His most important work is On the Principles of Political Economy and Taxation, first published in 1817” (Roll, History of Economic Thought, 155-6). “The fundamental groundwork of the Principles is based on the theory that, given free competition in trade, the exchange value of commodities will be determined by the amount of labor expended in productionÂ… [a thesis] which was given new force by the theory of distribution with which Ricardo reinforced itÂ… Ricardo was, in a sense, the first ‘scientificÂ’ economistÂ… [His work] has proved of lasting value” (PMM 277). “This is a most able, original and profound work. Its appearance formed a new era in the history of the science” (McCulloch, 16-17). Goldsmiths 23131. Lowndes, 2081. See Kress B7029. Owner signature.Some foxing; slight abrasions to covers. A very good, highly desirable copy, in handsome contemporary calf.

        Ssufismus sive theosophia Persarum pantheistica quam e mss. Bibliothecae Regiae Berolinensis Persicis, Arabicis, Turcicis [.].

      Berlin, Ferdinand Dümmler (typis Haynianis), 1821. - 8vo. XII, 331, (1), 40 pp. (appendix printed in Arabic, Persian, and Ottoman Turkish). Contemporary papered boards with ms. spine label. First edition. - Dissertation of the German theologian August Tholuck (1799-1877), a study of Sufism and oriental Pantheism composed because an illness prevented him at the time from accepting the chair of oriental languages and Old Testament exegesis at Dorpat. "Still worth reading" (Nicholson). While Schleiermacher criticised the work as untheological, the University of Jena accorded Tholuck an honorary doctorate in 1822 on the strength of his Persian studies. As professor of Old Testament studies in Berlin and Halle, Tholuck would go on to influence many American theologians, including the Methodist John Fletcher Hurst and Philip Schaff. - A contemporary inkstain to the first few pages. Inscribed by the author on the flyleaf: "Seinem innigst verehrten 'Nomodidaskalos en Kyrio' [Greek], der ihn zu Jesu wieß / der Verf." ("To his dearly beloved Instructor of Law in the Lord, who showed him the path to Jesus, from the author"). The recipient of this gift was likely the church historian Johann August Wilhelm Neander (1789-1850), in whose collection the volume was before the entire library was acquired by the American banker Roswell S. Burrows (1798-1884) for the Rochester Theological Seminary in New York (their printed shelfmark label of "Neander Library" on the front pastedown). A good copy. ADB 38, 55. Herzog/H. XIX, 697.

      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'.

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.

        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.

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]

In 1820, in the aftermath of the Napoleonic Wars and in the midst of the South American Wars of Independence led by Simón Bolívar, Spanish liberals forced King Ferdinand the VII to accept the Constitution of 1812, which Ferdinand had repudiated shortly after his restoration to the throne in 1814. Under royal mandate Spanish commander General Pablo Morillo put the Constitution into force in the South American colonies in the summer of 1820, declared a "junta pacificadora," and began negotiating with Bolívar. On November 25, 1820, Bolívar and Morillo met and signed two treaties, one declaring a six-month suspension of hostilities, the other establishing regulations of war. By his own request, Morillo was recalled to Spain in December, and his authority was transferred to Miguel de la Torre. Less than four months after the signing of the armistice, Bolívar wrote to Torre informing him that he would recommence military action at the expiration of thirty days. In the present volume Torre reproduces and comments extensively on correspondence between Bolívar, Morillo, and himself from December 11, 1820 to March 23, 1821. He includes Bolívar's March 10 letter informing Torre of his plans to break the armistice and writes in horror at its unexpectedness, "incoheren[ce]," and disastrous implications for the Spanish army - "never," he laments, "were reason and good faith so distant" (p.84). By the time the text was printed in Madrid, it is likely that Bolívar had already advanced on Torre in Carabobo, routing the outnumbered Spanish forces with the help of the British Legion on June 24 and effectively winning the war for control of Venezuela. Palau notes that this is the second part of a larger work, MANIFIESTOS DE LA CORRSPONDENCIA QUE HA MEDIADO ENTRE LOS GENERALES... (Palau 335518), but was issued with a separate titlepage, which is present here. Neither this title nor MANIFIESTOS... is located by OCLC. Very rare, and an important record of diplomatic relations between Spain and Simón Bolívar, including significant details about Bolívar often lost to popular history. PALAU 335517.

        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. 1819-1821]. - [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- 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.

        Queen Mab [unmutiliated]

      London W.

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."

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.
