        The Fossils of the South Downs; Or Illustrations of the Geology of Sussex

      London: Lupton Relfe, 1822.. First edition. 4to. (xvi), 327, (1 advertisement) pp. Recent half tan calf over marbled boards, spine raised bands, twin gilt lettered labels, ex Birmingham Free Library with their blindstamp to the foot of the title page and discreet deaccession stamps to the verso, blindstamps also appear to the margins of the plates though their ink stamps have been neatly and almost completely effaced, an old ownership inscription of "J. Howard, Hull" to the head of the subscriber's list, though his name doesn't appear in the list, and with his knowledgeable annotations to the majority of the plates, mostly to the margins without and occasionally alongside the figures within. 42 plates, of which 2 are folding and 5, including the geological map, are coloured. Some light spotting to the front and rear of the volume, else a decent copy. "...Mantell's first and in some respects most important book... a systematic description, by stratum, of the Secondary and Tertiary formations of Sussex. Mantell also described and illustrates the fossils to be found in each stratum. 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. As time would reveal, these... included both Megalosaurus and Iguanadon" Dean, 40.

        Broadside heralding the results of the 1822 Republican victory in Ulster County

      Kingston, New York, November 8, 1822. 10" x13". "Broadside, ""Great and Glorious Triumph!!"", Office of the Craftsman, Kingston, Ulster Co. N.Y., Friday, November 8, 1822, 1p, 10"" x 13"". Foxing, marginal chips and wear, ink spots, none affecting legibility. Very good condition.In part:,""We congratulate our friends on the result of this election. Old Ulster has returned to her ""old love,"" and in spite of the efforts of the Clintonians; in spite of the predictions of the sage Mr. John Tappen; in utter indifference to the calculations of the old adversary the people have selected their friends from the Republican party and our triumph is complete.""We will not follow the example of Mr. Tappen, on a former occasion, when by the basest misrepresentations of the Clintonian party, the good people of Ulster, alarmed at the prospect of a convention, to amend the Constitution, were seduced into the support of the federal party by ungenerous and unmanly observations. We know there are many generous and honest politicians in the Clintonian ranks, whose eyes are now opened to their situation; and we hope that hereafter they will not be inclined to continue the schism in the republican party. Yet our friends ought to rejoice - they have done nobly - every man was at his post - every soul has done his duty - and they will recollect those who have aided so zealously in atchieving [sic] the victory. ""In 1820, a power struggle between Governor DeWitt Clinton and the Bucktails faction of the party led to a call for a Constitutional Convention. The Bucktail members of the legislature were in favor of changing the constitution to transfer more power from the executive branch to the legislative branch, a proposition Governor Clinton vehemently opposed. After the legislature passed the bill, Governor Clinton cast the deciding vote in the Council of Revision and vetoed it. At the new session of the legislature in January, 1821, a new bill was passed that put the question of a Constitutional Convention to the people, who approved it. The new Constitution as amended by the convention was also put to vote for ratification as a whole, and was overwhelmingly approved. One of the changes to the Constitution was the abolishment of the Council of Revision. Henceforth, legislation vetoed by the Governor could now be overturned by a two-thirds vote of the legislature."

        Hortus Anglicus; or, the Modern English Garden with Remarks on the Properties of the More Valuable Species

      London: Rivington, 1822. Two volumes, octavo; very good in the original boards, early green cloth spines, original spine labels retained. One of the early works seeking to take the study of exotic botany out of the realm of the professional horticulturalist and make it accessible to the gardeners of Britain. The preface comments that it is based in large part on the second edition of the Hortus Kewensis, but here is adapted and made accessible for students, in part by comparison with the work of Willdenow.Because the work is intended not only to introduce readers "to a knowledge of exotic botany" but also to refer to plants which grow readily in Britain, it is telling to see which Australian plants are excluded: no banksia, for example, but also no bottlebrushes (although a hardy Australian acacia is included).

        Ein Neues Lied Von der Mord-Geschichte des Joseph Miller, welcher...

      1822. Verse Account of a Murder-Suicide in Pennsylvania [Broadside]. [Murder-Suicide]. [Pennsylvania]. [Koppelberger, Johannes]. Ein Neues Lied von der Mord-Geschichte des Joseph Miller, Welcher im Januar 1822, Einer Sonntags Nacht Seine Schwangere Frau unde Zwei Kinder auf eine Grausame Art Ermordete, Und sich Selbst Erhing, Welches Alles, Wie man Glaubt, Aus Armuth Geschah...[Running Title]. [N.p.: S.n., 1822]. 12-1/2 x 10" broadside. Text in three columns printed within woodcut border and separated by black rules. Moderate toning and light foxing, fraying and a few chips to edges, tear to bottom edge with negligible loss to text. * This sixteen-stanza "New Song of the Murder-Story of Joseph Miller" is attributed to Johannes Koppelberger. It tells the sad story of a murder-suicide committed by Miller, a German-American. The verses say he eloped from Poland with the daughter of a nobleman in 1817. The couple made their way to Philadelphia and from there to Lebanon, Pennsylvania, where Miller found work as a schoolteacher. The job paid poorly and his wife was increasingly homesick. Depressed, Miller killed his pregnant wife, two children with an ax and himself. It was a grisly affair involving and axe and a knife. This poem was quite popular and issued in a number of different broadside formats. According to Vellenreuter, there were, in all, 16 printings. All are rare. OCLC locates 3 copies of our version (American Antiquarian Society, Library Company of Philadelphia, University of Michigan). Not in Shaw & Shoemaker.

      Paris: Chez Lefuel, (ca.: , 1822). Paris: Chez Lefuel, (ca. 1822). A French pocket almanac whose contents are entirely devoted to the garden and whose charming hand-colored illustrations offer valuable documentation of the taste of the day. An amazing number of topics are covered in the text, from ancient French gardens and the jardin anglais in Paris to varieties of water features, labyrinths, garden deities, grottoes, ruins, pavilions, bosquets, the haha, garden seating and much more. Brès also quotes extensively from poetry concerning the garden and includes a satiric poem on the jardin anglais in Paris and its excesses. Opinions are expressed concerning various types of fabrique and specific garden flowers. The subtly hand colored engravings which illustrate the volume consist of the decorative title (a waterfall beneath a bridge); a children's garden with a mount, berceau, sun-flowers and toppled tree box; a window garden; a bridge, cascade and temple scene; "La Fontaine de Jouvence"; a tree house; an aviary; a grotto; a "mountain" with a pavilion on top; a Gothic pavilion over a lake; a swing enclosed in a bower by a swan-filled lake; and a floral clock. The whole volume expresses a romantic charm which brilliantly evokes the fashionable romantic gardens it describes. The work also appeared in an uncolored version.

        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. Kress C.891. Goldsmiths 23451. Einaudi 5419. Mattioli 3450. 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.

The Confessions "have an air of reality and life… They are, indeed, very picturesque and vivid sketches of individual character and feelings, drawn with a boldness yet an exactness of pencil that is to be found only in one or two prominent geniuses of our day… They combine strong sense with wild and somewhat fantastic inventions, accuracy of detail with poetic illustration, and analytical reasoning and metaphysical research with uncommon pathos and refinement of ideas" (Allibone I:494).CBEL III: 649.

        Auguste von Rading, Büste im Profil nach rechts.

      - Bleistift, mit einzelner Bleistiftlinie umrandet, auf Bütten, um 1822, auf Untersatz montiert und dort bezeichnet „Auguste von Rading geb. Zoege v. Manteuffel". 12,8:9 cm. Ein ähnliches Porträt der Auguste von Rading ist abgeb. in: L. von Kügelgen: Gerhard von Kügelgen, ein Malerleben um 1800, Stuttgart 1924, S. 93. Die genaue Identifizierung der Dargestellten verdanken wir Dorothée von Hellermann, Maastricht (Nachricht vom 8.02.2010). Wilhelm von Kügelgen war der Sohn von Gerhard von Kügelgen (1772-1820). Seit 1805 in Dresden, lebte er 1817-1818 in Bernburg bei seinem späteren Schwiegervater F.A. Krummacher. Im Spätsommer ging er an die Dresdener Akademie zunächst als Schüler seines Vaters und nach dessen Ermordung 1820 bei F. Hartmann (1774-1842). Nach Abschluß des Studiums, unterbrochen 1822-1823 durch einen Aufenthalt in Estland bei seinen Verwandten mütterlicherseits, ging er im Herbst 1825 nach Rom, wo er mit seinem früheren Hauslehrer C.A. Senff (1785-1863) und mit B. Thorvaldsen (1770-1844) in der Casa Buti wohnte und die Lebensfreundschaft mit L. Richter (1803-1884) und C.G. Peschel (1798-1879) begründet wurde. Krankheit und die Verlobung mit Julie Krummacher veranlaßten ihn, Rom im Mai 1826 zu verlassen. Er kehrte über Florenz und Venedig in die Heimat zurück. Nach einem vergeblichen Versuch als Porträtmaler in St. Peterburg Fuß zu fassen, kehrte er schon 1829 wieder nach Dresden zurück. 1830 siedelte er nach Schloß Hermsdorf bei Dresden über, das einem Freund gehörte. 1833 wurde er als Hofmaler nach Ballenstedt berufen, wo er, unterbrochen von wenigen Reisen, bis 1853 dieses Amt innehatte. Bis 1863 betreute er als Kammerherr aufopfernd den geisteskranken Herzog. Danach war er schriftstellerisch tätig.

      [Hamilton, Oh. 1822].. pp.[87]-118. Contemporary half leather and paper boards. Boards quite edgeworn and soiled. Contemporary ownership signatures of members of Van Cleve family on front free endpapers, bookplate on rear pastedown. Tanned, scattered foxing. Good. An interesting creation, in which an early owner has removed Jesse Denson's THE CHRONICLES OF ANDREW from the 1822 Hamilton, Ohio, edition of Isaac Hillard's A WONDERFUL AND HORRIBLE THING IS COMMITTED IN THE LAND..., and bound it as a separate, discreet title. Denson's highly approving assessment of Andrew Jackson's conduct in the War of 1812 and against the Creek Indians was first published in Lexington, Kentucky and Milledgeville, Georgia, in 1815. In that sense it is the third edition of the text. It was then included as the concluding section of the 1822 edition of Hillard's book, which was first published (without the Denson portion) in Poughkeepsie in 1814. Denson's text is a mixture of prose and poetry, written in a highly religious style, thereby lending Andrew Jackson godlike qualities. A strange copy of a strange title. 1822 edition of Hillard: HOWES H491. SABIN 31915. STREETER SALE 1736. AMERICAN IMPRINTS 9010.

        Two Voyages to New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land, with a Description of the Present Condition of that Interesting Colony: including Facts and Observations relative to the State and Management of Convicts of Both Sexes

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, 1822. Octavo, the paper with some browning; a very good copy in attractive modern crushed green half morocco, gilt. A rare Australian voyage, and 'a valuable account of the treatment of transported convicts' (Ferguson). This is the only edition of the book, which was dedicated to Elizabeth Fry, the English Quaker and prison reformer.Thomas Reid (1791-1825) was a naval surgeon and prison reformer. Born in Ireland, he graduated from the Royal College of Surgeons in 1813. Reid travelled as surgeon-superintendent on the voyages of the convict ships Neptune (to Sydney in 1818) and Morley (to Hobart Town and Sydney in 1820), the latter carrying female convicts, and he uses his description of his experiences to express his deep feelings against transportation. Although he was highly praised by the captains of both voyages for his care of the convicts, he thereafter refused to take part in a convict transport.Reid's book is of some importance as a serious and detailed account of transportation with considered notes on the actual convicts themselves (who were all too often tacitly ignored in narratives of voyages to New South Wales). In this light, even his rather dry lists of the sorts of goods taken on board are interesting, an insight into shipboard life. Reid also travelled rather widely in Sydney and Hobart, and offers several reflections on all levels of society. Governor Macquarie, who had met Reid when visiting Bathurst in October 1820, afterwards wrote: 'We all much regret Dr Reid's departure as we found him a most agreeable good humoured and entertaining friend and associate' (Australian Encyclopedia).

        Autograph letter signed to William Blake. East India College, April 29th 1822

      Octavo, quarto, 7.3 x 9.1 ins, 3 pages + integral address leaf, in ink, small paper tear with loss when originally opened, endorsed in black ink on address leaf in a contemporary hand Malthus April 1822, and with circular red ink postal stamp F 30APR30 1822 and red lettered postal stamp of the village of Hoddesdon, original fold marks,original black wax seal, preserved in a cloth box, in fine condition.Professor Christophe Depoortère, of the University of Paris, comments on this letter:1. Malthus assertion: "I believe our principal difference is as to names. I do not know what to call a rise of prices which lasts for many years and extends to all commodities, but a fall in the value of the currency, in whatever way it might be occasioned" (Malthus to Blake, f.1r.-f1v.).This is probably a comment on the passage from Blake?s pamphlet running from page 10 to 13. Indeed, as Hollander noted (1985, 637), Malthus shared the Bullionist definition of the term "depreciation" and called "depreciated" a money which no longer conformed to its standard. Then, as stated by Ricardo, the high price of gold bullion becomes a proof of the depreciation of bank notes. Depreciation is then a fall in the value of money compared to the standard (gold). However, in his pamphlet, Blake called "depreciation" a change in the value of money "as compared with allother commodities" (Blake 1822, 11). This, as Malthus commented, is a fall in the value of money but not necessarily a depreciation of money. Indeed, such a fall may be the consequence of two different causes. The first one when a money is depreciated, when the market price of gold (the standard) is higher than its official price. The second one when there is a fall in the value of the standard, when prices raise but the market price of the standard remains at the mint price. I believe this is the reason why Malthus prefers to call a rise of prices of all commodities "a fall in the value of the currency" (which can be caused by a depreciation of money or by a fall in the value of the standard) rather than a "depreciation of money" as Blake does.2. The passage of Malthus?s letter: "the increase of paper was called out at first by an increase of prices from demand, and forced in subsequently by a fall of prices from want of demand; but still I cannot give up all idea of depreciation" (Malthus to Blake, f.1v.).This is part of Malthus analysis of the wartime expansion (1793-1813) and of the post Napoleonic war depression (1815-1820). He developed this analysis at length in his Principles (1820, 490-522). The following quotation appears particularly relevant to explain what he meant in the letter you have in your possession:"In the history of our paper transactions, it will be found that the abundance or scantiness of currency has generally followed and aggravated high or low prices, but seldom or never led them; and it is of the utmost importance to recollect that, at the end of the war, the prices failed before the contraction of the currency began. It was, in fact, the failure of the prices of agricultural produce, which destroyed the country banks, and shewed us the frail foundations on which the excess of our paper-currency rested. This sudden contraction no doubt aggravated very greatly the distresses of the merchants and of the country ; and for this very reason we should use our utmost endeavours to avoid such an event in future; not, however, by vain efforts to keep up prices by forcible issues of paper, in defiance at once of the laws of justice and the great principles of supply and demand, but by the only effectual way, that of steadily maintaining our paper of the same value with the coin which it professes to represent, and subjecting it to no other fluctuations than those which belong to the precious metals" (Malthus 1820, 514-5. Part of this passage is quoted in Blake 1820:82).3. The "striking resemblance which exists between the laws which govern the increase of capital, and the laws which govern the increase of population" (Malthus to Blake 1822 f1v-f2r).In his book entitled Progress and Profits in British Economic Thought 1650-1850, Tucker (1950, 163) stressed that Brougham (1804, 115), Malthus and Chalmers developed analogies between the growth of population and the growth of capital. As far as Malthus is concerned, this analogy is developed in the Principles (1st Ed. Chapter 7: On the Progress of Wealth, section 3: Of Accumulation, or the Saving from Revenue to add to Capital, considered as a Stimulus to the Increase of Wealth):"The laws which regulate the rate of profits and the progress of capital, bear a very striking and singular resemblance to the laws which regulate the rate of wages and the progress of population"Mr. Ricardo has very clearly shewn that the rate of profits must diminish, and the progress of accumulation be finally stopped, under the most favourable circumstances, by the increasing difficulty of procuring the food of the labourer. I, in like manner, endeavoured to shew in my Essay on the Principle of Population that, under circumstances the most favourable to cultivation which could possibly be supposed to operate in the actual state of" the earth, the wages of the labourer would become more scanty, and the progress of population be finally stopped by the increasing difficulty of procuring the means of subsistence."But Mr. Ricardo has not been satisfied with proving the position just stated. He has not been satisfied with shewing that the difficulty of procuring the food of the labourer is the only absolutely necessary cause of the fall of profits, in which I am ready fully and entirely to agree with him: but he has gone on to say, that there is no other cause of the fall of profits in the actual state of things that has any degree of permanence. In this latter statement he appears to me to have fallen into precisely the same kind of error as I should have fallen into, if, after having shewn that the unrestricted power of population was beyond comparison greater than the power of the earth to produce food under the most favourable circumstances possible, I had allowed that population could not be redundant unless the powers of the earth to keep up with the progress of population had been tried to the uttermost. But I all along said, that population might be redundant, and greatly redundant, compared with the demand for it and the actual means of supporting it, although it might most properly be considered as deficient, and greatly deficient, compared with the extent of territory, and the powers of such territory to produce additional means of subsistence ; that, in such cases, notwithstanding the acknowledged deficiency of population, and the obvious desirableness of having it greatly increased, it was useless and foolish directly to encourage the birth of more children, as the effect of such encouragement, without a demand for labour and the means of paying it properly, could only be increased misery and mortality with little or no final increase of population."Though Mr. Ricardo has taken a very different course, I think that the same kind of reasoning ought to be applied to the rate of profits and the progress of capital. Fully acknowledging that there is hardly a country in the four quarters of the globe where capital is not deficient, and in most of them very greatly deficient, compared with the territory and even the number of people; and fully allowing at the same time the extreme desirableness of an increase of capital, I should say that, where demand for commodities was not such as to afford fair profits to the producer, and the capitalists were at a loss where and how to employ their capitals to advantage, the saving from revenue to add still more to these capitals would only tend prematurely to diminish the motive to accumulation, and still further to distress the capitalists, with little increase of a wholesome and effective capital."The first thing wanted in both these cases of deficient capital and deficient population, is an effectual demand for commodities, that is, a demand by those who are able and willing to pay an adequate price for them ; and though high profits are not followed by an increase of capital, so certainly as high wages are by an increase of population, yet I believe that they are so followed more generally than they appear to be, because, in many countries, as I have before intimated, profits are often thought to be high, owing to the high interest of money, when they are really low; and because, universally, risk in employing capital has precisely the same effect in diminishing the motive to accumulate and the reward of accumulation, as low profits. At the same time it will be allowed that determined extravagance, and a determined in disposition to save, may keep profits permanently high. The most powerful stimulants may, under peculiar circumstances, be resisted; yet still it will not cease to be true that the natural and legitimate encouragement to the increase of capital is that increase of the power and will to save which is held out by high profits; and under circumstances in any degree similar, such increase of power and will to save must almost always be accompanied by a proportionate increase of capital."One of the most striking instances of the truth of this remark, and a further proof of a singular resemblance in the laws that regulate the increase of capital and of population, is to be found in the rapidity with which the loss of capital is recovered during a war which does not interrupt commerce. The loans to government convert capital into revenue, and increase demand at the same time that they at first diminish the means of supply. The necessary consequence must be an increase of profits. This naturally increases both the power and the reward of accumulation; and if only the same habits of saving prevail among the capitalists as before, the recovery of the lost stock must be rapid, just for the same kind of reason that the recovery of population is so rapid when, by some cause or other, it has been suddenly destroyed."It is now fully acknowledged that it would be a gross error in the latter case, to imagine that, without the previous diminution of the population, the same rate of increase would still have taken place; because it is precisely the high wages occasioned by the demand for labour, which produce the effect of so rapid an increase of population. On the same principle it appears to me as gross an error to suppose that, without the previous loss of capital occasioned by the expenditure in question, capital should be as rapidly accumulated; because it is precisely the high profits of stock occasioned by the demand for commodities, and the consequent demand for the means of producing them, which at once give the power and the will to accumulate."Though it may be allowed therefore that the laws which regulate the increase of capital are not quite so distinct as those which regulate the increase of population, yet they are certainly just of the same kind ; and it is equally vain, with a view to the permanent increase of wealth, to continue converting revenue into capital, when there is no adequate demand for the products of such capital, as to continue encouraging marriage and the birth of children without a demand for labour and an increase of the funds for its maintenance." (1820, 370-5).There is also, still in Chapter 7 (section 10) of the Principles this interesting passage where Malthus writes:"But when profits are low and uncertain, when capitalists are quite at a loss where they can safely employ their capitals, and when on these accounts capital is flowing out of the country ; in short, when all the evidence which the nature of the subject admits, distinctly proves that there is no effective demand for capital at home, is it not contrary to the general principles of political economy, is it not a vain and fruitless opposition to that first, greatest, and most universal of all its principles, the principle of supply and demand, to recommend saving, and the conversion of more revenue into capital ? Is it not just the same sort of thing as to recommend marriage when people are starving and emigrating? (1820, 495)IMPORTANT RECENTLY DISCOVERED UNPUBLISHED AUTOGRAPH LETTER BY THOMAS ROBERT MALTHUS, THE FATHER OF POPULATION THEORY AND ONE OF THE FOUNDERS OF CLASSICAL POLITICAL ECONOMY, TO THE ECONOMIST WILLIAM BLAKE.Writing from the East India College, where he was Professor of Political Economy he notes "Have you observed the striking resemblance which exists between the laws which govern the increase of capital, and the laws which govern the increase of population".Malthus also writes on the much debated issue at the time [between Malthus, Ricardo, Blake and others] about the effect of increasing demand on rising prices and the effect of the quanitity of money in circulation. "I have always thought and said that, the increase of paper was called out at first by an increase of prices from demand,and forced in subsequently by a fall of prices from want of demand". Malthus?s view was that, at the end of the war, the collapse of corn prices and the cessation of wartime government expenditures provoked the collapse of country banks. This reduced the money supply and aggravated greatly the distress (Malthus, Political Economy 1820, pp. 514-515). In William Blake?s 1823 pamphlet [not accepted by Ricardians] Blake wrote to the effect that the cause of falling prices was deficient demand, owing to the rapid decline in government expenditure. Malthus agreed with Blake. Keynes called ?the almost total obliteration? of Malthus?s line of approach and the complete domination of Ricardo?s ?a disaster to the progress of economics?.See James: Population Malthus, pp.309-310.William Blake [1774-1852] friend and neighbour of Malthus and like Malthus both aFellow of the Royal Society and member of the Political Economy Club. He was author of Observations on the Principles which regulate the Course of the Exchange and the present depreciated state of the currency. 1810 described by McCulloch as "one of the very best pamphlets to which the Bullion controversy gave birth. It contains a masterly exposition of a most important but at the same time complex and difficult subject." McCulloch, Literature of Political Economy. p.174; and Observations on the Effects produced by the expenditure of Government during the Restriction of Cash Payments 1823. Blake showed it to David Ricardo before publication which led to an exchange of ?sentiments?. On publication "Ricardo wrote a series of remarks in the margins of his own copy...Blake dealt with Ricardo?s criticisms one by one in a reply which extends to 19 quarto pages of mss". Notes on the Papers on Blake in Sraffa The Works and Correspondence of David Ricardo, vol.IV, pp.324-356.Malthus mentions in the letter "I depend upon seeing you Tuesday eveningat Mrs Marcets". Mrs Jane Marcet [1769-1858] was author of Conversations on Chemistry, intended more especially for the Female Sex 1803 and Conversations on Political Economy 1816 which was an instant bestseller and ran to seven editions to 1839.We have been unable to locate any other letters from Malthus to William Blake.

Beaux exemplaires avec de très rares rousseurs, Le relieur Niedree fut distingué pour son travail en 1844. Il était réputé pour ses reliures de style Renaissance ; ?"la conservation des marges était pour lui l?'objet des plus grands soins.?" Orlando Furioso, ou Roland furieux est un poème épique de 40 chants, écrit par Ludovico Ariosto, dit en français l'Arioste, écrit au début du XVIe siècle, le Cinquecento italien, il sera publié en 1516. S'inscrivant dans le cycle carolingien comme un lointain descendant de la Chanson de Roland (ou Chanson de Roncevaux) et présenté, à sa sortie, comme une suite de l'Orlando Innamorato (Roland amoureux) de Matteo Maria Boiardo. Le poème fut écrit en ferrarais, le dialecte utilisé à Ferrare, puis l'Arioste lui-même l'adapta en toscan littéraire, afin qu'il soit plus accessible pour le reste de l'Italie. Roger et Bradamante y sont présentés comme les ancêtres légendaires des ducs de Ferrare, et donc du cardinal Alphonse d'Este qui était le protecteur de l'Arioste et sans doute le commanditaire du livre.

        Observations sur les Modes et les Usages de Paris,

      1822. The Rarely Seen Parisian Scene The Rise of the Post-Revolution French Middle ClassIts Customs, Costumes, and Leisure Activities[BON GENRE, LE]. Observations sur les Modes et les Usages de Paris, pour Servir d'Explication aux 115 Caricatures Publiées Sous le Titre de Bon Genre, Depuis le Commencement du Dix-Neuviéme Siècle. Paris: Chez L'Editeur [Pierre de Crapelet], 1822. Second edition, with eleven additional plates not found in the first edition of 1817. Folio (13 15/16 x 10 1/2 inches; 355 x 266 mm). [4], 24 pp. of descriptive text. One hundred and fifteen magnificent hand-colored plates, engraved by Georges-Jacques Gatine, Schencker and others after Horace Vernet, Louis Marie Lanté, George Dutailly, Isabey and others. Printed by Vassal et Essling. A few plates very lightly and evenly browned, scattered light marginal spotting.Loosely inserted at plate 39 "La Politicomanie" is the alternate version (as seen by Vicaire) entitled "Les Titus et les Cache-folie."Contemporary quarter green calf over green paper boards, corners strengthened with brown morocco, smooth spine ruled and lettered in gilt, uncut. With the bookplates of R. Descamps Scrive and Joel Spitz on front paste-down. Housed in a later, fleece-lined, green buckram slipcase.A fine, attractive copy and complete example of the exceptionally rare second edition. The work was first published in 1817 with 104 plates, it was then expanded by 11 plates in the second edition, and reprinted for a third time in 1827. The magnificent caricatures depict not only the dresses and the excesses of fashion of the time but also public entertainments such as acrobats walking the tightrope, dancing dogs, sword acrobats, and giant sledges. All plates carry the heading ?'Le Bon Genre?', and date from 1801-1822. Provenance: Le Comte de Béhague. Loosely inserted is a letter from Arthur Rau the Parisien bookseller, dated 20th December 1956 explaining this copy was part of the Comte?'s library ?- R. Descamps Scrive (bookplate) ?- purchased from Rousseau-Girard, Paris, 1 March 1939. OCLC/KVK note only two copies of this 1822 second edition in library holdings worldwide, no copies of the 1817 first edition and only six copies of the 1827 third edition.Le Bon Genre was one of the earliest series of prints to record the social trends and leisure activities of contemporary Parisians. It is the most important fashion portfolio of its time documenting, through its caricatures, the rise of the modern city of Paris and the emerging middle-class bourgeois, its fashions, recreations and dating customs. It also has fun at visitors' expense, particularly the English, whose customs and fashions the French found incomprehensible and unfashionable; the years of hostility between France and England did nothing to improve relations and the French lost few opportunities to ridicule the British. Le Bon Genre's popularity influenced most of the later fashion illustrators and journals, as well as the satirical albums so typical of mid-19th century France, and remains a key record of French social history. Overall, Le Bon Genre bears witness to the colorful post-Revolution period of Parisian society as it evolves into the early Republican era.Of particular interest is the descriptive text preceding the plates that details the content of each caricature. One is astonished and charmed by images of a trio enjoying a magic lantern show (#31); three women rapturously eating sorbets (#4); a trained and costumed dog act (#35); a circus balancing act (#91); a man who eats anything (#93); a huge amusement park slide (#97); and so many more enchanting engravings delicately and vividly hand-colored.?"Le Bon Genre…was first published in 1817 and went through several editions. This is a record of English and French fashions since the beginning of the nineteenth century; the English fashions are more in the nature of caricatures, to show how badly Englishwomen dress as compared with the Parisiennes?" (Vyvyan Holland, Hand Coloured Fashion Plates 1770 to 1899, p. 51).?"Its illustrations are lively and witty statements of the life of Paris since the beginning of XIXc., with a text of explanatory paragraphs, rather than fashion plates?" (Millia Davenport, The Book of Costume, II, p. 814).?"Georges-Jacques Gatine was the leading costume engraver of his time. For many years he supplied plates for the Journal des dames. He engraved the 115 designs which make up Le bon genre , a lively mélange caricaturing people and scenes of contemporary interest?" (Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book, p. 141).Le Bon Genre's publisher and editor, Pierre Joseph Antoine Le Bouc of Mésangère (1761-1830), better known by the name of Le Mésangère, was a fascinating character whose eclectic career covered a very wide period, from the French Revolution (1789) up to the Second Restoration (1815 -1830). First an eccleslastlc, philosopher and writer, then fashion journalist, he was, for more than thirty years, editor-in-chief of Le Journal des Dames, a periodical that had an enormous influence upon contemporary French standards of elegance and taste. Born in Anjou, 1761 to a middle-class family, Mésangère entered the order Congregation of the Brothers in 1784, and held the philosophie belles lettres Chair at the College de la Fleche. In hiding during the Terror (1793-1794), after Robesplerre's death (July 28, 1794) he began to be known as a writer for Parisian literary journals. He wrote Le Voyageur a Paris ou Tableau pittoresque et moral de cette capitale (1797) a book that gained a certain notoriety. In 1799 he became editor of Le Journal des Dames, a magazine founded two years earlier. It reigned supreme amongst the women's magazines of the epoch. With engraver Gatine executing the designs, Mésangère was the pre-eminent writer, editor, and publisher of works devoted to French women's fashion of his era.Colas 2239; Davenport II, 2280A-2281; Hiler, p. 101; Holland, p. 51; Vicaire I, 842-843.

      - PASTEUR Louis (1822-1895), scientifique. L.A.S. adressée à un médecin. Paris, 24 avril 1876. 1 p. in-8. Il le remercie pour l'envoi d'une brochure sur la sériciculture et lui assure : « Vous avez vraiment, permettez-moi de vous le dire, l'esprit scientifique et je félicite les malades de la ville d'Apt de pouvoir recourir aux soins d¿un médecin tel que vous (.) Sur tous les points, je crois, sans exception je suis complètement d'accord avec vous. » Au 19e siècle, l'intensification en France de la sériciculture s'accompagna d'une multiplication des maladies. Le Ministre de l'Agriculture, Béhic, confia l'étude de ces maladies à Louis Pasteur. Après 5 ans de travaux, Pasteur proposa une méthode de prophylaxie et publia en 1870 un livre intitulé Étude sur la maladie des vers à soie.
