         Title in cyrillic: Voyage around the world by order of His Majesty, the Emperor, on naval sloop Kamchatka in 1817, 1818, and 1819, by Fleet Captain Golovnin].

      Naval Printing Office, 1822-23., St. Petersburg, - Presentation copy of Golovnin's rare account of his circumnavigation on the sloop Kamchatka, incorporating one of the earliest plans of Honolulu. First edition. Two volumes quarto (260 by 195mm), volume I with two folding tables, six folding engraved maps and charts, and six folding plates of engraved landfalls and coastal views, with two to four profiles per plate; volume II with two large folding engraved maps on thick paper, one of Sitka Bay and other adjoining parts of Russian possessions on the northwest coast of America, and the other of Chiniat Bay on Kodiak Island. Full red morocco with gilt roll borders, rebacked with original spines tooled in gilt, morocco lettering pieces, all edges gilt. Collation: [8]. 512, xliv, [errata leaf]; [8], 205, [1], cxxvii, [3] pp. Lada-Mocarski notes that Vasili Golovnin was "one of the outstanding Russia naval officers of the nineteenth century, made several voyages to the North Pacific and to the northwest coast of America. He has left valuable accounts of his voyages and of the investigation of the state of the Russian colonies in America, which he conducted by order of the emperor in 1818. The work described herein is of utmost importance and of great rarity." Vasili Mikhailovich Golovnin (1776-1831) was born in the village of Gulyniki in Ryazan Oblast, on his father's country estate. On the orders of Tsar Alexander I, Golovnin was sent, along with several other Russian officers, to obtain further training aboard British ships. He served three years (1802-1805) with the British fleet and on his return to Russia compiled a code of naval signals on the English pattern, which remained in use by the Russian fleet for more than twenty years. Golovnin was given command of the sloop Diana in 1806, and made his first voyage around the world (1807-1809), with the object of conducting a survey of the northern Pacific, and transporting supplies to Okhotsk. He, and his ship, were taken prisoner by the British authorities at the Cape of Good Hope, but orchestrated an audacious escape to complete their voyage to Kamchatka. In 1811, Golovnin described and mapped the Kuril Islands, but was again taken prisoner, this time by the Japanese, for violating sakoku, the Japanese law prohibiting foreigners from entering Japan, almost provoking a war between the two countries. He was released in 1813, and returned to Russia, publishing an account of his captivity and of Japanese culture. In 1817, Golovnin set out on a second voyage around the world, this time in command of the frigate Kamchatka. Serving under him were three future Russian explorers of prominence: Fyodor Litke, Fyodor Matyushkin, and Ferdinand von Wrangel. The objective was to deliver supplies to Kamchatka, and survey previously unexplored islands along what is now the northwestern coast of Alaska. After returning to Russia in September 1819, Golovnin returned with "a vast store of scientific and astronomical information" (Dunmore) to share with Russian scientists, and published the present work describing his voyage, and his encounters with the native Kodiak and Sandwich Islanders. In 1821, Golovnin was appointed assistant director of the Russian Naval College, and later, in 1823, General Quartermaster of the Fleet. He died of cholera during an epidemic that swept through the city of Saint Petersburg in 1831. On the voyage he spent a fortnight in Hawaii, meeting briefly with Kamehameha. One of the folding maps in the first volume is the entrance to the port of "Gonoruru", or Honolulu, noted by Forbes as "one of the earliest maps of Honolulu". The second volume contains a map of Sitka Bay and the surrounding area, and a map of Chiniat Bay, both of which are rare. OCLC/WorldCat locates eight copies in institutional libraries.

The so-called 'Nottingham Controversy' was a dispute about the Church of England's influence on public education. The Nottingham National Schools were schools that followed the Andrew Bell model and were sponsored by the Anglican 'National Society for Promoting the Education of the Poor in the Principles of the Established Church throughout England and Wales'. In Nottingham, it was the Rev. George Wilkins, the Vicar of St. Mary's, under whose spiritual care the schools undoubtedly came. His role was vigorously disputed by the evangelical neo-Calvinist Rev. John Burnett Stuart, the Minister of the recently built St. James's Chapel situated since 1807 on 'certain extra-parochial land, called Standard Hill, near the town of Nottingham'.

         SOUTH AFRICA / AUSTRALIANA: "TRACK OF H.M.S. TAMER ROUND THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE" [MANUSCRIPT TITLE, PASTED OVER ORIGINAL PRINTED TITLE: TRACK OF THE SHIP HANNAH JOHN LAMB R. N. COMMANDER ROUND THE CAPE OF GOOD HOPE IN JUNE & JULY 1822.]

      Copper engraving, with contemporary pastedown overlaid manuscript title in pen and manuscript additions in pencil to the chart (Good, fine engraving impression, but with light stains throughout, traces of old purple mounting paper on verso where chart was seemingly once pasted into an album), 20.5 x 41.5 cm (8 x 16.5 inches). - [Printed chart: n.p., n.d., but likely London, 1823; Manuscript additions, 1824]. A unique example of a very rare chart of South Africa, with a curious Australian connection! Commander John Lamb’s chart showing the 1822 route of his ship ‘Hannah’, fighting the Agulhas Current rounding the Cape of Good Hope; but this example with a manuscript pastedown title regarding the route of the ‘H.M.S. Tamar’, plus manuscript traces of its route, being a Royal Navy vessel on its way, in 1824, with secret orders to found the first European settlement in what is now Northern Australia, on Melville Island. - This is a unique example of an extremely rare privately printed sea chart of South Africa, featuring manuscript alterations that give it an extraordinary Australian connection. The underlying (printed) chart depicts most of the southern coasts of South Africa in skeleton outline, labeling only the major headlands, from the Cape of Good Hope westward to the ‘Last Point of Natal’, while a line in the interior represents the beginning of the highlands. The course of the Agulhas Current, a powerful warm stream that runs southwestwards down the Indian Ocean coast of South Africa, is expressed through stipple engraving, a highly unusual technique for a sea chart. While covered by a pastedown manuscript title, the underlying printed title of the chart reads ‘Track of the Ship Hannah John Lamb R. N. Commander Round the Cape of Good Hope in June & July 1822’, and in this vain, the Hannah’s arduous course sailing against the Agulhas Current is shown, tacking erratically back and forth, but overall forward, with numbers marking its daily progress. This underlying chart was privately printed, likely in London, in 1823, for Captain John Lamb (1790 - 1862), a former Royal Naval officer who retired on half-pay, in 1814, in order to pursue a career in the merchant marine. For some years, Lamb worked for the firm of Buckles, Bagster & Buchanan as the master of several ships, one of which was the Hannah, ferrying convicts and cargo between England and Australia. Lamb eventually settled in Sydney, founding his own firm, and becoming immensely wealthy through the shipping and wool trades. SEE OUR WEB PAGE FOR LONGER DESCRIPTION.

         A Map of South Carolina: Constructed and Drawn from the District Surveys Ordered by the Legislature

      Philadelphia, 1822. Engraved map on four sheets, unjoined, engraved by H. S. Tanner. Large inset of Charleston harbour. Expert restoration including repairs to tears and small area of expert facsimile (at the lower left corner of the top right sheet). Approximately 48 x 63 inches, if joined. The first large-scale map of South Carolina made after the establishment of the United States and the first official map of the state."Soon after the United States was constitutionally established each of the individual states was confronted with the urgent need for an accurate and up to date map of its jurisdiction. The federal government was financially unable to support the compilation and publication of such maps ... Not until the second or third decades of the nineteenth century were most of the young states able to support official mapping projects ... The state maps are among the earliest examples of truly American cartography. They were, for the most part, based on surveys by Americans and were compiled drafted, engraved, printed and published in the United States. They were, moreover, specifically designed to meet the cartographic requirements of the several states. Above all, in the methods, techniques and procedures employed to produce state maps, American ingenuity and resourcefulness were abundently demonstrated" (Ristow, p. 85).The story of South Carolina's first state map followed a similar path as other states. As the need and fashion for internal improvements boomed following the War of 1812, including the building of roads, canals and railways, an accurate official map was required. In 1817, the South Carolina General Assembly began the process by ordering surveys of each district for use in compiling a larger official state map, and James Wilson, a civil and miliary engineer was placed in charge of its production. In all, 19 surveyors would be employed to survey 28 different districts or counties. By the time of its completion, the total cost for surveying, engraving and printing the map would exceed $90,000. As in other state maps of the period, engraver H. S. Tanner was commissioned to produce the present final product, writing in his Memoir that "Wilson's map is decidedly one of our best and most scientific maps." It would remain the foundation map for South Carolina until the Civil War.Phillips, A List of Maps of America, p. 822; Ristow, American Maps and Mapmakers, pp. 126-128 & 209-210; Rumsey 4996.

         Plans for the government and liberal instruction of boys, in large numbers; drawn from experience.

      London: printed for G. and W.B. Whittaker 1822 - 8vo., (2) + xv + (1) + 238pp., complete with half-title, errata slip (tipped in before B1, with 16 errata) and preliminary advertisement leaf dated July 1822, well bound recently in old-style blue-grey boards with a printed spine label, entirely uncut. A very good copy. First edition. Muirhead (The English at School>) 66. Goldsmiths 23620. Williams II p.468. Stewart & McCann (Educational Innovators, 1750-1880>), I, chap.6. Adamson pp.51-53. Simon (Studies in the History of Education, 1780-1870>) pp.82-84. First edition of an influential and perhaps epoch-making book. Hazelwood School in Birmingham, founded by Thomas Wright Hill, and run by his son Rowland Hill, is an 'interesting example of the best kind of private and progressive or experimental secondary school' (Muirhead). The school catered for boys of all aptitudes by having a basic curriculum with a wide choice of 'voluntary labours' which included practical subjects such as mapping, music, and modelling. Tasks were allotted on the project or assignment system and were not judged until completed. The general object of the school was simple: it was to produce men of business, not narrowly defined, but producing men with the capacity for practical administration in any walk of life. The school's characteristic features included: complete self-government by the boys, a mark system of reward and punishment of great complexity, a minutely ordered timetable, and attention to useful rather than classical knowledge in the curriculum. 'The most striking point about Hazelwood, however, was its resemblance to the Chrestomathic proposals of Jeremy Bentham. The academical aspect of Hazelwood School was in some degree more conventional than the organisational side. Nevertheless, there was a seriously thought-out procedure concerning curriculum and method that foreshadowed a great deal of what was considered progressive much later in the century. In particular, in language teaching and in the teaching of science the school was innovatory. The celebrated system reinforced the ethic of the school and stimulated the academic achievement of the pupils. The Hills themselves had little doubt of their success and they concluded Public Education> with the assertion that they had created Edgeworth's Utopian idea of a school, in which the pupils improve in the social virtues, without learning party spirit; and though they love their companions, they do not, therefore, combine together to treat their instructors as pedagogues and tyrants. If Bentham's influence was to be found at Hazelwood, so too were traces of the spirit of Rousseau and Pestalozzi, but mediated through the mind and skill of the Hill family.'

         Tracts on political economy. Viz. 1. Britain independent of commerce; 2. Agriculture the source of wealth; 3. The objections against the corn bill refuted; 4. Speech on the East India trade. With prefatory remarks on the causes and cure of our present distresses, as originating from neglect of principles laid down in these works

      London: printed for Longman Hurst Rees Orme and Brown 1822 - 8vo, xliv + 265pp, complete with the half-title and with individual title-page for each part, original boards sometime rebacked, label on spine defective, some wear to extremities, entirely uncut. A very good copy. First collected edition. The first collected edition of four previously separately issued tracts with a new preface by the main proponent of English physiocratic doctrine, William Spence. William Spence (1783-1860) was a strong supporter of the old corn laws, and subsequently an opponent of James Mill. He upheld the view that the prosperity derived from agriculture was inherently superior to that derived from commerce or trade. The first tract largely dealt with this topic. The Tracts> was highly popular, went through several editions, and drew a number of responses from enraged fellow economists, not least from James Mill himself. J.F.M. Clark, Spence's biographer in ODNB, puts Spence's published work in context. 'A year after taking up residence in the Drypool district of Hull in 1806, Spence produced his Radical cause of the Present Distresses of the West India Planters pointed out> (1807) and his Britain Independent of Commerce> (1807). An avowed follower of the physiocrats of 'French economists', he proclaimed that agriculture was the most important source of a nation's wealth. Extremely contentious, Britain Independent of Commerce> passed through six editions and netted Spence a profit of £230 by late 1808. As one of about three dozen books and pamphlets spawned in reaction to Spence's opinions, James Mill's Commerce Defended> (1808) laid the intellectual underpinnings of classical political economy. Moreover, Mill identified Spence's purportedly wartime, nationalistic cant as a critique of capitalism and an apologia for the landed interests. Spence responded with his Agriculture the Source of the Wealth of Britain> (1808)'. Spence's Objections against the Corn Bill refuted> came out in 1815. The present uniting in one volume of Spence's controversial Tracts> is significantly enhanced by his extensive new preface (pp. vii - xliv) in which he takes on the great names of political economy without fear or favour - Adam smith, T.R. Malthus, Robert Chalmers, Robert Owen, and James Mill - and shrewdly comments on the Bullion Committee, the Bank of England and other institutions. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         [Color Plate] The history of Johnny Quæ Genus : the little foundling of the late Doctor Syntax : a poem

      London: Published By R. Ackermann, At The Repository Of Arts, 101, Strand, London; And To Be Had Of All The Booksellers In The United Kingdom, 1822. Full Leather. Very Good +. [iv],267 [pagination irregular but text complete],[1]pp, with 24 hand-colored aquatints by Thomas Rowlandson. Contemporary straight-grain morocco gilt, boards framed in gilt and in blind with leaf-and-flower rolls, rebacked with part of original spine and red morocco lettering piece laid down, marbled end papers. A Very Good or better copy, generally clean and bright with first and final leaves (including title page) foxed, usual offsetting from plates, very occasional finger-soiling. Abbey, Life, 268. Tooley 413. Grolier Rowlandson 48. Martin Hardie, 174-75. "The last of the genuine or 'authorized' Syntax books" (Abbey), first issued in eight monthly parts. As early as 1809, the publisher Ackermann had hired Combe to write the letterpress to accompany many of Rowlandson's most successful illustrations, including those for the final volume of the "Microcosm of London" and perhaps especially for the illustrations that resulted in the series of comic poetry for which Combe is still most famous, and which earned him his best-known nickname, Doctor Syntax: The Tour of Doctor Syntax, in Search of the Picturesque and its two sequels (1812, 1820, 1821), The English Dance of Death (1815, 1816), The Dance of Life (1817), and finally The History of Johnny Quae Genus, the Little Foundling of the Late Doctor Syntax (1822). "Combining light-hearted satire of William Gilpin's theory of the picturesque in art with a central character modelled on Cervantes' Don Quixote and Henry Fielding's Parson Adams, Combe created a lovable eccentric whose misadventures on the road structure the Tour. For over a century the many editions and numerous imitations of the Tour attested to the popularity of Combe's humorous hero."

Printed in various sizes, and not uncommon in a regular edition, this is the extremely rare imperial quarto edition with proofs on India paper, the most expensive version at the time and only published in a very limited print run. The plates are engraved by W. B. Cooke and artists include Peter De Wint, Samuel Owen, John Hughes, William Havell, and many others. The plates show the early nineteenth century scenery along the River Thames, which is always in view, depicting villages, towns (including Oxford and London), bridges, estates, monuments, and several pastoral scenes including cattle, people fishing, rowing, ship-building, etc., all accurately engraved and colored by hand. Each plate has an explanatory caption, one has an additional poem, and a few depict historical events; e.g. "Opening of Waterloo Bridge on the 18th of June 1817", "Launch of the Nelson at Woolrich, July 4th 1814", and "Fair on the Thames Feb. 1814" (when the river was frozen over). "A new edition of the work is in course of publication to be completed in Six Parts, each Part containing thirteen Engravings; the letter-press description will appear at the Conclusion as an Octavo volume. It is intended to re-engrave several of the plates, to omit some altogether and to substitute new ones of a more interesting description. To be printed in Royal Quarto; also in Imperial Quarto, with Proof impressions, and a small number to be taken off on India paper, first proofs… The 'de-luxe' edition, with illustrations on India paper, was clearly intended to supplant the older standard work on Thames scenery, Boydell's History of the Thames" (No 75), whose aquatinted plates were by now very worn. As in Boydell the illustrations in the quarto edition are split up into two volumes, the first extending from Thames head to Richmond, and the second from Richmond to Southend. Also as in Boydell the text is subordinated to the engravings which are mostly the work of a single engraver." (Adams, pp. 337-340). Eleanor Castle Stewart - most likely Eleanor May Stuart (nee Guggenheim), Countess Castle Stewart (1896-1992), wife of 7th Earl Castle Stewart; daughter of Solomon R. Guggenheim. Adams, London Illustrated 1604-1851, no. 139.

         Designs for the Pavillon [sic.] at Brighton. Humbly inscribed to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. By H. Repton . with the assistance of his sons, John Adey Repton, F.S.A. and G.S. Repton, architects

      printed by Howlett & Brimmer for J. C. Stadler, sold by Boydell & Co., Longman, Hurst, Rees & Orme, [etc.], London 1822 - (21 5/8 x 14 3/4 inches). Emblematic frontispiece hand-coloured, 1 hand-coloured plan, 7 aquatint plates (one tinted with a sepia wash, six hand-coloured [one with an overpage, one double-page with two overslips, one folding with two overslips, one single-page with two overslips, one single-page with one overslip]), 11 aquatint illustrations (seven uncoloured, one with a sepia wash, three hand-coloured [two of these with a single overslip]), all by J.C. Stadler after Repton. Uncut. Contemporary half red morocco over contemporary marbled paper covered boards, original paper letterpress label affixed to the upper cover, spine in eight compartments with semi-raised bands, bands tooled in gilt, lettered in gilt in the second compartment, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt A fine uncut copy of Repton's fascinating proposal for a royal palace at Brighton. Humphry Repton was the main successor to Lancelot "Capability" Brown as an improver of grounds for the English gentry in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. He was particularly noted for his Red Books. These were produced for each individual client and were made up from a manuscript description of his proposed improvements bound with Repton's own watercolour drawings of the grounds, with his proposed alterations displayed on an overlay. His proposal for Brighton pavilion was no different and the present work "was based directly on the original Red Book, which was sent to the publisher and engraver, J.C. Stadler, of 15 Villiers St., Strand. The drawings, by Repton and his sons, were sumptuously reproduced in aquatint, mostly in color, complete with their overslips and slides. Stadler himself took on the financial responsibility" (Millard, British p. 245). "Repton was first summoned to Brighton by the Prince of Wales in 1797. Payments were made to him over the next five years for works in the garden of the Prince's still modest marine villa. Then, in October 1805, Repton was requested to attend on the Prince in Brighton. The Prince and Repton met on 24 November. By 12 December Repton had returned to Brighton with a sheaf of drawings showing possible improvements. The prince was intrigued and asked for a design for an entirely new house. Repton presented his scheme in February 1806 in the form of [a]. Red book, now in the Royal Library at Windsor. By then the prince's initial enthusiasm had dulled; he was beset with financial difficulties and had laid aside all elaborate schemes for the enlargement of the pavilion" (Millard op.cit. pp.243-244). Repton's designs were inspired directly by the wonderful Indian architecture so ably pictured in Thomas and William Daniell's Oriental Scenery (1795-1808). First published in 1808, the present issue dates from 1822 and may mark an attempt to take advantage of the interest generated when architect John Nash completed his work on the Pavilion for King George IV. Between 1815 and 1822 Nash redesigned and greatly extended the Pavilion, and it is the work of Nash which can be seen today. The pavilion as it was finally completed still owed a huge debt to Indian architecture but was in a form which re-interpreted the Indian ideal in a fashion more suitable to both English tastes and climate.

         Manuscript Letter of Virginia Slave Owner Barred from Taking Slaves to Ohio.

      Culpepper County Virginia: , 12 April 1822. Folded letter sheet, 1pp., signed. Some creasing and edgewear, normal aging and toning; otherwise very good. William Ramlin Withers (c1756-1834) was a Revolutionary War soldier that enlisted as a sergeant, but would be promoted to Lieutenant. In 1782 he returned to Virginia with a leg injury that seems to have left him lame for the rest of his life. It is unclear how he was injured. The letter is to a Mr. Sawyer of Frankford, Kentucky. The address can be seen faintly on the overleaf. Withers who was in his sixties when he wrote this letter was trying to sell some land he was given in Ohio. However, because he was "old a very infirm man" he needed his slaves to take care of him. Since slaves were not allowed in Ohio, Withers was forced to sell the land, which he offered to Sawyer. He offered the land for one dollar per acre, he also indicated "I will take part payment, four or five young horses at a fair price. "Withers had a somewhat colorful life, and after serving in the military he was also a sheriff and had four children. Somehow he ended up in debt, and even had his ex-wife suing him for unpaid alimony. As far as his slaves were concerned it appears he gave two to his son, and the others were sold to pay off his debts. Information on Withers can be found on various Revolutionary war websites, and from some local records supplied by a previous owner.

Seventy-six of these fossils, new to science, were here named by him for his scientific friends... he was able to note... a number of fossil plants, shells, and fishes, together with some extremely curious vertebrae, teeth, and bones of unknown but obviously gigantic reptiles.

         Confessions of an English Opium-Eater

      London: Printed for Taylor and Hessey, 1822. "Oh! Just, Subtle, And Mighty Opium!" A Fine and Elaborate Early Twentieth Century Binding by Bayntun of Bath [DE QUINCEY, Thomas]. BAYNTUN, binder. Confessions of an English Opium Eater. London: Printed for Taylor and Hessey, 1822. First edition in book form. Large twelvemo (6 7/8 x 4 inches; 176 x 101 mm). vi, 206 pp. including half-title. Leaf E 12 (pp. 95/96) expertly and almost invisibly extended at fore-margin, not affecting text. Bound c. 1920 by "Bayntun. Binder. Bath. Eng." (stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in). Full crimson crushed Levant morocco, covers with double gilt ruled borders enclosing an elaborate floral design in gilt and also lettered in gilt. Spine with five raised bands decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, decorative gilt board-edges and wide turn-ins, red watered silk liners and end-leaves, top edge gilt, others uncut. A fine and attractive example. Confessions of an English Opium-Eater (1821) is the classic autobiographical narrative written by Thomas De Quincey (1785-1859) concerning his laudanum (tincture of opium) addiction and its effect on his life. The Confessions was "the first major work De Quincey published and the one which won him fame almost overnight..." First published anonymously in September and October 1821 in the London Magazine, the Confessions was released in book form in 1822, and again in 1856, in an edition revised by De Quincey. "De Quincey's study of his own opium addiction and its psychological effects traces how childhood and youthful experiences are transformed, under the influence of opium, into symbolical and revealing dreams. The central experience for subsequent dream-formations was his childhood loss of his sister, duplicated by the disappearance of the 15-year-old prostitute Ann, who befriended him during his months of homeless near-starvation in London. The euphoric reveries of the early stages of his addiction and the appalling nightmares of the later stages are described in sonorous and haunting prose, and the work, first appearing in the London Magazine in 1821, conferred instant literary fame on De Quincey, whose first book it was. In 1856 he greatly extended the Confessions for a collected edition of his works, but thereby blunted its effect" (The Oxford Companion to English Literature). "This is the first edition of the first part of the book; the complete text first appeared in Boston in 1850 and in London in 1856" (Tinker). Ashley Library II, p. 37. Sterling 229. Tinker 817.
