WEBER, Carl Maria von 1786-1826
Ca. 71 x 60 mm. Signed with monogram "E.B." at lower left and identified on the verso as being of Carl Maria von Weber. Mounted to dark ivory stock; hinged to mount at upper margin of verso. We have been unable to identify the monogrammist "E.B." "A prototypical 19th-century musician-critic, he sought through his works, words, and efforts as performer and conductor to promote art and shape emerging middle-class audiences to its appreciation. His contributions to song, choral music, and piano music were highly esteemed by his contemporaries, his opera overtures influenced the development of the concert overture and symphonic poem, and his explorations of novel timbres and orchestrations enriched the palette of musical sonorities. With the overwhelming success of his opera Der Freischütz in 1821 he became the leading exponent of German opera in the 1820s and an international celebrity. A seminal figure of the 19th century, he influenced composers as diverse as Marschner, Mendelssohn, Wagner, Meyerbeer, Berlioz, and Liszt." Paul Corneilson et al in Grove Music Online.

Lyon, George Francis.
London, John Murray, 1821. 4to. XII, 383, (1) pp. Folding engr. map frontispiece ("Map of a Route through the Regency of Tripoli and Kingdom of Fezzan"), 17 chromolithogr. plates drawn by Lyon and lithographed on stone by G. Harley or D. Dighton, M. Gauci, as well as a text illustration. Modern red cloth with gilt-stamped black spine labels. First edition of Lyon's account of his botched Timbuktu expedition, finely illustrated with 17 plates (created by M. Gauci and D. Dighton after Lyon's own drawings) showing the Arabian desert culture. - In 1818, G. F. Lyon (1795-1832) was sent with surgeon-explorer Joseph Ritchie by Sir John Barrow to find the course of the Niger River and the location of Timbuktu. A year later they had only got as far as Murzouk where they both fell ill. Ritchie never recovered and died, but Lyon survived and continued his travels. After a year he returned to Tripoli, the expedition having failed utterly. Upon return, he was promoted and in 1821 - the same year this book was published - given the command of HMS Hecla on his second attempt. Lyon was reputed to have a genuine informed interest in the culture and inhabitants of the lands he visited. Wearing Arab/Muslim dress and speaking fluent Arabic, he managed to blend in with the inhabitants of North Africa. "An important work. Lyon joined the British government scientific mission headed by Ritchie, taking place of Captain Frederick Marryat. They met at Tripoli in November 1818. Ritchie died in 1819 and Lyon took over command of the expedition. He returned to London in July, 1820. Shortly after that h … [Click Below for Full Description]

PRICE, David.
London: J. Booth; Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown; and Black, Kingsbury, Parbury, and Allen, 1821. 3 volumes in 4, quarto (272 x 208 mm). Recent brown half sheep period-style, spines gilt tooled on raised bands, blind tooled in compartments, red and black twin labels, marbled sides and edges. An attractive set: clean and well-margined. Large folding handcoloured map of Asia (from the eastern Meditarrenean to Korea, and from Siberia to Mysore). First edition sheets with title pages dated 1821 and issued by the publishers on completion of the work, scarce. A significant work by the orientalist and army officer David Price (1762-1835), who saw action in the Third Anglo-Mysore War against Tipu Sultan, and, on retiring from the East India Company's service, settled in Wales and "devoted himself to writing long, leisurely works on Arabian, Persian, and Indian history. Of these the best-known and the most important is Chronological Retrospect This covers the period from the death of Muhammad to the accession of Akbar. The earlier volumes are based chiefly on the Persian chronicles of Mirkhand and Khandamir, and are most detailed and accurate with respect to Persian history; but in the last volume Abu'l-Fazl is largely used. It is written in the over-ornate style of Price's sources, but it is the painstaking work of a genuine scholar anxious to do full justice to his authorities. Without pretending to any striking grasp or generalization, it is nevertheless useful and was for many years almost the only English work of reference for some branches of Eastern history" (ODNB).

Bookseller: William Reese Company - Americana [New Haven, CT, U.S.A.]
2017-10-16 12:02:39
[Georgia Laws]
Louisville, Ga.; Augusta, Ga.; Milledgeville, Ga, 1821. Twenty-five volumes. Individual details and paginations provided below. Bound to style in half calf and marbled boards, leather labels. Old library stamps on titlepages. Moderate tanning and scattered light foxing. Two volumes slightly imperfect as noted below. Very good. A nearly comprehensive run of rare imprints reporting the laws enacted by the Georgia state General Assembly at the end of the 18th century and the first two decades of the 19th century. Though places of publication such as "Louisville" and "Milledgeville" might at first seem odd, the small town of Louisville, Georgia served as the third capital of Georgia from 1796 to 1807 and Milledgeville the fourth from 1807 to 1868 (after which Atlanta became capital), and as a matter of course they hosted the meetings of the state legislature. For unknown reasons the 1805 laws were printed in Augusta, at the time one of the largest towns in Georgia, but not the capital. De Renne notes that the earliest imprint offered here is "the first volume of the regular series of Georgia Session Laws," and of the editions reported by De Renne during this period, this set lacks only the accounts of a second session held in 1799 and of an extra session held by the General Assembly in 1803. Individual copies of these state law books are rare in and of themselves, and only a small number of institutions have an extended run of this important series. The works included in this collection are as follows: 1) ACTS OF THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF GEORGIA: PASSED AT LOU … [Click Below for Full Description]

2017-10-16 11:58:56
Schubert, Franz, composer (1797-1828).
1821. Oblong folio. 11 pp. Engraved throughout. First edition with Schubert's autograph checkmark ("Sch[ubert] m[anu] p[ropria] 220") on last page and printed dedication to the Austrian theater director Michael Vogl. Much rarer than Schubert's first publication ("Erlkönig"), published the same year: no copy in international auction records. Usually, Schubert's autograph checkmarks on his early works are strongly trimmed in the descenders; in the present copy, however, the ckeckmark is entirely untouched by the binder's knife. In the last copy of Schubert's Opus 6 to appear in the trade (Schneider 282 [1985], 128), the checkmark was almost entirely trimmed away. - The fact that the checkmarks are in Schubert's own hand has been disputed (cf. E. Hilmar, "Anmerkungen zu Schuberts Erstdrucken", in: Florilegium Musicologicum 1988, 145-154); however, Drüner has made a strong case for their authenticity: "The problem is indeed more complicated for opuses 1-7 and 96, and in these cases Hilmar's refusal is too categorical. His main arguments are not correct [...] It is almost certain that on the occasion of the publication of his opus 1-7, Schubert proudly followed the examples given to him by Johann Nepomuk Hummel, who signed his opuses [...] Hummel and Schubert were pupils of Salieri who taught both of them the highest editorial precision. Therefore, the idea of signing definitely came from Schubert [...]" (Otto Haas, cat. 40 [2003], p. 16). For a comparison of handwriting cf. the paraphs pictured by Drüner on p. 16 (Schubert's hand, identical with ours) and 17 (by another hand). … [Click Below for Full Description]

SCOTT, Sir Walter, Bart.
[1821] 25 lines on 2pp, 8vo; integral blank with address in another hand: 36 Albany Street.Charlotte, née Carpenter, married Scott on Christmas Eve 1797 and died in May 1826. Anne, the Scotts&apos; daughter, was born in 1803. This letter dates from 1821, when Scott visited London with Sir William Rae, the Lord Advocate. Their primary purpose was to see through Parliament a bill &apos;partly to relieve them of the labour of signing in person the thousands of formal writs issued from their offices&apos;. While in London, Scott lodged with Rae at the Waterloo Hotel, Jermyn Street. He sat for his portrait by Thomas Lawrence and was lionised by London Society. The &apos;Court of Session&apos; bill cleared Parliament on March 26; despite Scott&apos;s anxiety to return home to see his first grandchild, son of his daughter Sophia, he remained in London to consult with the Duke of York on his son Walter&apos;s military career. Scott had intended to travel to Edinburgh by sea, but instead took the stagecoach, leaving London on the 6th & arriving on the 10th.

Longworth, David and Thomas
New York: Thomas Longworth, 1821. 487,[23]pp. including illustrated advertisements, plus one plate and two one-sided advertising leaves. 12mo. Modern half morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Early pencil inscriptions in margins of almanac. Light scattered foxing, else very good. The last Longworth directory with contributions from its founder, David Longworth. Longworth began publishing his almanac and New York City register and directory in 1796, providing his patrons with extensive, up-to-date information on duties and other commercial concerns, major institutions, and city residents. Most of the almanacs were embellished with commentary from Longworth, excerpts from other books he had recently published, and/or bits of humor and verse. David Longworth handed over editorial duties to his son, Thomas, in 1806 and stepped aside as publisher of the directory after the 1817 edition. He died in September, 1821. In the present volume, references are made to the "opposition" directories, which Longworth derides in an advertisement as "despicable" imitators who have "nicked" an unwitting public. The verso of the contents leaf consists of a full-page cartoon, which depicts one man, with arms full of Longworth's directories, about to step on an "OLD DIRECTORY," and having his rear end bitten by a giant snapping turtle, which itself is stepping on a leaf reading, "ART OF POACHING." A printing press is depicted in the background, and a second man, apparently the keeper of the turtle, is pointing at the first and declaring, "How he nicks 'em."

Volumes 139-40, 142-3 spines taped. Books in good to very good condition. North American Review was the first literary magazine in the United States. It was founded in Boston in 1815 by journalist Nathan Hale and others. It was published continuously until 1940, but was inactive from 1940 to 1964, until it was revived at Cornell College (Iowa) under Robert Dana. Since 1968 the University of Northern Iowa (Cedar Falls) has been home to the publication. NAR's first editor, William Tudor, and other founders had been members of Boston's Anthology Club, and launched North American Review to foster a genuine American culture. In its first few years NAR published poetry, fiction, and miscellaneous essays on a bimonthly schedule, but in 1820, it became a quarterly, with more focused contents intent on improving society and on elevating culture. NAR promoted the improvement of public education and administration, with reforms in secondary schools, sound professional training of doctors and lawyers, rehabilitation of prisoners at the state penitentiary, and government by educated experts.

GEOLOGICAL SOCIETY OF LONDON
William Phillips, London, 1821. Complete, including the list of donations to the library and index in each volume. With 70 maps and plates in Volumes 4 and 5, many folding, double-page and colored. Full calf; a splendid copy, wide-margined, with minimal browning. First edition of the first five volumes, the complete first series, representing the Society's earliest systematic publication, published from 1811 to 1856. During this period the Transactions featured almost 350 papers, many of which have become classics, but the title was eventually superseded by the Quarterly Journal of the Geological Society. Print sets of the Transactions are now rare and highly prized. Authors include William Buckland, Richard Owen, Roderick Murchison, Adam Sedgwick, and William Conybeare, each of which has multiple articles included. Some of the many articles in the first series include James Parkinson's Observations on some of the strata in the neighbourhood of London, and on the fossil remains contained in them; John Davy on the geology and mineralogy of Ceylon; J.S. Henslow, Supplementary observations to Dr. Berger's account of the Isle of Man, De la Beche and Conybeare, Notice of the discovery of a new fossil animal forming a link between the Ichthyosaurus and crocodile; Richard Bright's article on the hills near Hungary; and David Brewster's fascinating work on the form of the integrant molecule of carbonate of lime.

BRANDE, William Thomas
London: John Murray`, 1821. SECOND EDITION. Complete with all blanks. Volume I with 3 folding engraved plates (one a frontispiece), numerous text illustrations and errata; Volume II with l plate, text illustrations and diagrams, errata; and Volume III with text woodcuts and diagrams, errata, and index. Nicely bound in green diced calf, gilt edges on covers with decorated scallop design in black on border of covers, the joints a bit rubbed and one of the labels is lacking. An especially nice copy from the library of Hugh Seymour, Warwick Society, with his armorial bookplate. The first edition was printed in 1819 in one volume of less than 700 pages. This second edition is essentially a new one since it is so much enlarged and greatly expanded to include chapters on early alchemists and a history of chemistry. Brande (1788-1866), apprenticed as an apothecary, studied medicine, but his main interest was chemistry. He succeeded Sir Humphry Davy to the chair of chemistry at the Royal Institution, lectured widely and was director of their laboratory and mineralogical collection. At the Royal Institution, Brande devoted himself to chemical investigation, lectures, and writing. He was assisted by Michael Faraday with the lectures as well as in editing the Quarterly Journal of Science and Art. "Never a major researcher in the sense of Davy or Faraday, he was an effective lecturer and writer of several important textbooks, all of which went through several additions" (ODNB, II, pp. 1124-1126).
