        SEVENOAKS [TURNPIKE] TRUST - SPECIFICATION OF THE PARTICULARS OF EXCAVATION AND SUNDRY WORK TO BE PERFORMED NEAR SEVENOAKS KENT. John Millington Civil Engineer and Surveyor 6 Leigh Street, Burton Crescent, London. 4th. Febry 1822.

      1822 - Manuscript, tied with tape. Folio. 16.25 x 13 inches. 5 leaves. The plans and sections mentioned in the text have not survived with this document. Originally folded in four, with some griming on title fold. Small tears on right hand edge, not affecting legibility. Some browning and extremities worn but otherwise in fine condition in dark legible script An engineering specification, detailing the excavations and earthworks required to improve the turnpike road in the area of White Hart Hill, where the road from Sevenoaks Town crosses the common in the direction of Tonbridge. This was the southern extremity of the Farnborough to Sevenoaks (Riverhill) turnpike, originally established in 1749, following the passage of the 1748 Act. The Specification has been drawn up by John Millington of London, the engineer appointed by the Trustees, to instruct a contractor who is to commence work in the spring and complete it by 1st August 1822. The contractor is to give financial securities for the performance of the work and is to be paid in instalments, any disputes between the two parties to be resolved by arbitration. The greater part of the Specification is a detailed technical account of the works to be carried out. The works were contiguous to those being carried out at the same time by the Tonbridge Trust which was responsible for the the southwards continuation of the road and it is suggested that the two trusts co-operate on the disposal and reuse of excavated soil. The new line of the road required the lodges and gate of Milton Lombard to be removed and rebuilt, at the Trust's expense, in a new location and his boundary to be planted with 'a quickset hedge consisting of 2 rows of young healthy quicks and to fence the same on the inside with rough split oak posts and rails.' The contractor is 'to find and provide all Labour Carts, Horses, Barrows Planks Screens and Tools of every description' He is also required to protect passing vehicles and cattle, by fencing the excavation and by stationing '2 careful watchmen' at each end of it, to 'be provided with Lanthorns and lights from dusk until day light to direct passengers into the proper track and prevent danger.' A valuable account of the engineering side of turnpike road construction. In spite of this new work in 1822, the line of the road to the south of Sevenoaks continued to cause concern to the Trust and, following two Acts passed in the mid-1830s, it was again planned to realign the road, taking land from Whitehart Farm, in 1852. John Millington (1779-1868) was born at Hammersmith and practised law before turning to civil engineering and being associated with the road-maker, McAdam in his construction work. He was a fellow of the Society of Arts (later Royal) and lectured at the Royal Institution and was briefly appointed to teach engineering at the newly founded University College, London. A dispute over his salary led him to emigrate, firstly to Mexico, where he oversaw silver mining, and later to the USA, where he held the chair of chemistry and natural philosophy at the College of William and Mary, Williamsburg, Virginia, 1836-48 and was a professor at the new University of Mississippi, 1848-53.

        Bronze Medal, 'Voyage autour du Monde de la Corvette la Coquille'

      Paris: Andrieu & de Puymaurin, 1822. Bronze medal, 50 mm, extremely fine. Duperrey's Coquille voyage. An excellent example of the very uncommon bronzed copper medal commemorating the first voyage of Duperrey to the Pacific. A similar example of this bronze version is held in the Rex Nan Kivell collection of the National Library of Australia.Duperrey's voyage was one of the greatest of the French grands voyages to the Pacific. The expedition set out from Toulon on 11 August 1822, with the intention of collecting scientific data and specimens, but also instructed to report on the possibility of establishing a penal colony in Western Australia. Duperrey, who was thirty-five at the start of the voyage, had been on the crew of the previous major French Pacific voyage, that of Freycinet. He had as his second-in-command Dumont d'Urville, who was to become the most experienced French commander in the Pacific. While science led the expedition, there was also an unspoken goal of discovering where France might carve out an empire in the South Pacific. His voyage was of some 73,000 miles, with major destinations including Australia, New Zealand, and New Guinea.By far the greatest contributions of the expedition were scientific, cartographic and ethnographic, and the Duperrey voyage account is a famously sumptuous production, with exquisite coloured plates.

        Voyage Pittoresque Autour du Monde, avec des Portraits de Sauvages d'Amerique, d'Asie, d'Afrique, et des iles du Grand Ocean; des paysages, des vues maritimes, et plusieurs objets d'histoire naturelle

      Paris: de l'Imprimerie de Firmin Didot, 1822. Folio, with lithograph frontispiece portrait of Count Romanzoff, 104 hand coloured lithograph plates, folding map of the voyage and two plans (on one sheet); with text in 12 separately paged sections and with plates also separately numbered; original crimson morocco spine and corners, crimson glazed paper boards, title in gilt on spine; occasional foxing to text leaves as in nearly all copies, some browning to a few plates. The most beautiful colour plate book of the North and Central Pacific. A superb copy of this amazing book, "a spectacular and early lithographically illustrated travel account that has always been considered one of the most beautiful and important colour plate books of the Northern Pacific. It contains more early coloured views of Hawaii, Alaska and California than any other work of the period..." (Forbes).Choris, a Russian of German stock, was just twenty years old when he was appointed as official draughtsman on the Kotzebue expedition of 1815-1818. During this voyage he produced a vast number of important sketches and watercolours, and on his return to Paris was encouraged to produce this great work, which was first issued in 22 parts between 1820 and 1822. Most of these views did not appear in the official account of the expedition published in Germany and in Russia, and some of the copper engraved plates in the official account were re-lithographed to suit the artist. Overall, this publication reflects Choris' personal interests and preferences. It has a rich and exotic point of view not seen in any other voyage book. Over the years copies of this wonderful book have been broken up for sale as separate prints which helps to account for its exceptional modern rarity.This copy contains the Norblin version of the Queen Kaahumanu portrait, the preferred Langlume lithograph of Kamehameha and the first state of the female dancers (Plate XVI) with the plain background.The many beautiful plates include views and scenes of native life, artefacts, plants, shells and animals. Twelve relate to California (including several of San Francisco), nineteen of Hawaii (with the first view of Honolulu), twenty-three of Alaskan interest, and twenty-one of various parts of Micronesia. Lada-Mocarski calls it "one of the very valuable and fundamental works on Alaska, California and the Hawaiian Islands". The list of subscribers, which accounts for only 188 copies, includes the Emperor of Russia, and the King of France.This most attractive copy has the armorial bookplate of the Swiss count Frederic de Pourtales (1779-1861, to whose eldest son, oddly enough, Charles La Trobe served as tutor in the 1820s) and subsequently formed part of the great Carlsmith library in Hawai'i (sold by ourselves in 1985).

        "Die alte Lore von Ungedanken".

      . Radierung, 1822, auf chamoisfarbenem Velin. 16,2:12,1 cm. Literatur: Stoll 156. Sehr guter und breitrandiger Abdruck mit einem leichten Lichtrand entlang den Blattkanten. Es handelt sich bei diesem Blatt um die 1. Fassung des Motivs mit der alten Zigeunerin.. Der vor allem als Radierer tätige Grimm war 1804-1808 Schüler der Kasseler Kunstakademie bei Gottlieb Kobold (1769-1809), Andreas Range (1762-1828) und Ernst Friedrich Ferdinand Robert (1763-1843). Durch seine Brüder Jacob und Wilhelm Grimm wurde er mit Clemens Brentano (1778-1842) und Achim von Arnim (1781-1831) bekannt, mit denen er zusammenarbeitete. Wohl 1807 lernte Grimm Bettine Brentano (1785-1859) kennen, von der er zahlreiche Porträts anfertigte. In November 1808 zog er nach Landshut zu Brentano und dessen Schwager Friedrich Carl von Savigny (1779-1861). Auf ihre Vermittlung ging er nach München und erlernte Kupferstechen bei Carl Ernst Christoph Heß (1755-1828). Zugleich studierte er an der Münchner Akademie unter Andreas Seidl (1760-1834). Unterbrechung des Studiums 1814 durch Teilnahme an den Freiheitskriegen. Mit Georg Brentano reiste er im Frühjahr 1816 nach Italien, wo er zwei Monate blieb. 1817 kehrte er nach Kassel zurück. 1824 reiste Grimm zum ersten Mal nach Willingshausen und wurde zum Mitbegründer der Willingshäuser Malerkolonie, eine der ersten Malerkolonien Deutschlands. 1832 wurde er an die Kasseler Kunstakademie als Lehrer berufen.

        Colonie Anglaise De La Nouvelle-Galles Du Sud, a la Nouvelle-Hollande

      Paris, 1822. Engraved map (first state), with inset map of Ile Van-Diemen 1822, 310 x 240mm (plate size), very good condition, sheet with generous margins. Freycinet maps New South Wales. Intriguing map of New South Wales and Tasmania prepared by Louis de Freycinet for inclusion in the published account of his expedition titled Voyage autour du monde.Freycinet is best remembered for his voyage to Australia and the South Pacific of 1817-1820, a pivotal French expedition that advanced scientific and geographical knowledge of the region. The care and detail devoted to the preparation of this map reflect to Freycinet's considerable cartographic skill.Of special interest is the inset detail of Van Diemen's Land, and two schematic elevation profiles (the first showing altitude from Sydney to Bathurst, the second from Bathurst to Mount Ellendon).

        The District of Albany formerly t'Zuurenveld, being the eastern frontier of the Colony of the Cape if Good Hope, shewing locations of the settlers lately arrived from England.

      1822 - Handcoloured engraved map measuring 605 x 890 mm. (sheet size); lower blank margin chipped (but well outside plate mark), a very good copy. "Fine pasture country, uninhabited and considered as neutral ground" Detailed topographic map of the Albany district (present day South Africa) presenting a wilderness mapped but largely untamed.This map was published by William Faden (1749-1836), one of the more prolific cartographic publishers of the later eighteenth-century who began his trade with Thomas Jefferys. In 1783 Faden was appointed geographer to the king and by 1796 'he assembled an unrivalled stock of large-scale maps of the British counties'. Over the coming two decades Faden served the emerging market for maps of the colonies, of which this chart of the Cape of Good Hope is a good example.A sense of the frontier nature of this country is given in note engraved in a blank section to the northeast corner: 'fine pasture country, uninhabited and considered as neutral ground since to convention with the Caffre chiefs, after the last disturbances in the Year 1819'.

        The History of Johnny Quae Genus, the Little Foundling of the Late Doctor Syntax: a Poem, by the Author of the First Three Tours

        ATLANTE DANTESCO DA POTER SERVIRE AD OGNI EDIZIONE DELLA DIVINA COMMEDIA, OSSIA l'INFERNO, IL PURGATORIO, IL PARADISO. Composto dal Sig.Giovanni Flaxman e già incisi dal Sig.Tommaso Piroli, ed ora rintagliati dal Signor Filippo Pistrucci con aggiunta di nuovi intagli. Milano, Presso Batelli e Fanfani, e sì pure presso il Pistrucci suddetto, 1822.

      Album in formato oblungo, cm.24x33,3, composto da 12 pagine di testo e da 120 incisioni al tratto di Tommaso Piroli su intagli di Filippo Pistrucci. Prefazione bilingue, italiano - francese, dell'editore Antonio Fortunato Stella. Legatura coeva in mz.pelle con piatti marmorizzati. Tassello con titoli e fregi in oro al dorso. Esemplare in barbe, ad ampi margini. Le incisioni raffigurano le cantiche del capolavoro dantesco, con citazione del verso di riferimento in versione italiana e francese. Fisiologiche tracce d'uso. Si tratta di una rara edizione ottocentesca di una importante raccolta iconografica della "Divina Commedia", pubblicata la prima volta in suite editoriale a Roma nel 1793. Ne è autore lo scultore inglese John Flaxman jr. (York, 1755 - 1826), corrispondente e allievo di William Blake, interprete dei canoni del neoclassicismo e ispiratore dell'arte di Ingres. Un'opera rivoluzionaria nell'interpretazione iconografica dantesca, tanto che il celebre quadro di Paolo e Francesca dello stesso Ingres sarebbe inconcepibile senza la chiave di lettura datane da Flaxman.

        OEuvres de G. Filangieri traduites de l'Italien. Nouvelle edition accompagnee d'un Commentaire par M. Benjamin CONSTANT et de l'eloge de Filangieri par M. Salfi.

      Paris, P. Dufart, 1822-1824.. 7 tomes en 6 volumes in-8, demi-maroquin rouge a la Bradel, dos lisses ornes de filets, titres dores, plats de papier bleu, exemplaire non rogne (reliure de l'epoque). Premiere edition collective des "Oeuvres" de Filangieri accompagnee de l'edition originale du 'Commentaire' de Benjamin Constant paru separement en 2 tomes, formant l'integralite du sixieme volume. Traduction de Jean-Antoine Gallois d'apres l'edition de Naples (1784-1791). "L'eloge" de Filangieri est de Francesco Saverio Salfi. Veritable best-seller europeen, cette oeuvre du juriste et philosophe napolitain disparu prematurement a la veille de la Revolution francaise fut recue comme une synthese du droit naturel et de la pensee republicaine. Sa critique, par Benjamin Constant, porta un coup tres rude a sa notoriete. Mieux que les autres ouvrages de Constant, ce 'commentaire' illustre a quel point le fondateur du groupe de Coppet liait libertes politique et economique. Il "donne [ici] un expose complet de sa propre doctrine, le plus complet meme du point de vue economique qu'il n'ait jamais presente" (cf. P. Bastid, 'B. Constant', I, p. 367). (Courtney, A/49/t1, A50/1 et 2. Dotoli, 'Les traductions de l'italien en francais au XIXe s.', p. 360). Quelques rousseurs. Bel exemplaire, entierement non rogne, tres bien relie a l'epoque, en demi-maroquin rouge a la Bradel..

      London: Taylor, Printer 1822. () Near fine. Small broadside. (17 X 23.5 cm.) Printed on one side only. Small hole in the right hand margin not effecting the printing. Wonderful woodcut of a ship and the author being pulled in a cart by twin dogs. Old fold line, touch of foxing otherwise excellent condition. David Parry on traveling from Liverpool on the Brig Crosby, to Quebec in Lower Canada feel through the ice and was trapped there for 2 days. He was discovered by two hunters and returned to the ship where both of his legs were amputated by the Carpenters and Sailors. The two illustrations show the ship and Parry in a cart being pulled by a dog team. Both of his legs are missing. The broadside was to be sold to render assistance to the poor Parry. I believe that the event was nothing more than a scam..

Allibone 2735). Williams, writer and diplomatist, who in addition to political satire and panegyric, wrote much miscellaneous verse: songs, love poems, complimentary verses, and imitations of Horace, Virgil, and Ovid. Much of his poetry was judged obscene, even by his contemporaries, and his reputation has reflected that judgement. Many poems, however, were not meant to be published but rather to be sung among drinking companions or read aloud to friends to gain the reputation of a wit. See ODNB.

        Original Manuscript] List of Death Among the Late African Company Officers in the Settlements on the Gold Coast from the 1st of January 1812, to 1st of January 1822 Being a Period of Ten Years.

      Gold Coast 1822 - Gold Coast, 1822. 4 pp. Manuscript ca. 34x21 cm (13x8 in). Manuscript with tears but no loss of text housed in a blue cloth custom made portfolio with a red gilt morocco label on front cover. In very good condition. This report by the Assistant Surgeon in the African Company of Merchants concerns the mortality rate among the Company's officers during a period of ten years (1812-1822) and includes a list of fifty people (indicating their names). The "Remarks" section explains the statistics: "The African Company Establishment when fully appointed consisted of forty-five commissioned and non commissioned European officers but during the period of time stated above, there was not more than thirty-five residing in the Settlements on a yearly average & the deaths among them being five annually on an average." Arthy also counts the number of the native workers of the Company: "170 non commissioned officers and private soldiers, and 334 artificers, labourers and labouresses", and states that the mortality amongst them "except on occasional visitations of the Small Pox, was generally at the rate of one percent per annum, and very rarely exceeded two percent". Arthy concludes that "there is much reason to believe that the Climate of the Gold Coast would be found considerably less destructive of the health and lives of Europeans than that of any other intertropical country round the world. In reality to decide this question, it does not seem necessary to enquire further that Sierra Leone, Charlestown, the Havannah, Surinam and Batavia, wherein the mortality among Europeans annually so excessive and lamentable and so generally known as might serve to remove all Doubts of the superior salubrity of the Climate of the Gold Coast to that of all other tropical countries". "The African Company of Merchants was a Chartered Company in the Gold Coast area of modern Ghana, in the coastal area where the Fante people lived. It was founded in 1752 and replaced the Royal African Company which was dissolved in that year. In 1817 the Company had signed a treaty of friendship that recognized Asante claims to sovereignty over large areas of the coast, including areas claimed by the Fante. The Company was abolished in 1821, as the slave trade had not been suppressed in these privately held areas. Authority over the area was given to Governor Charles MacCarthy, the governor of Sierra Leone, who was subsequently killed in the First Anglo-Asante War" (Wikipedia).
