        THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE ROMAN HISTORY

      Edinburgh, printed for W. and C. Tait, 1822.. FIRST EDITION 1822 translated by JOHN BELLENDEN. 4to, approximately 245 x 180 mm, 9½ x 7¼ inches, pictorial and decorated initials, pages: xii, viii, 479, finely bound in full leather, triple ruled gilt border with corner motifs and small gilt armorial device in centre of covers, raised bands to spine, gilt decoration in compartments, gilt lettering, all edges gilt, double ruled gilt inner dentelles (turn ins), marbled endpapers. Hinges rubbed and darkened, one or two minor marks to covers, couple of light scratches on lower cover, front inner paper hinge cracked, binding tight and firm, armorial bookplate on front pastedown, another small bookplate to front endpaper, endpapers slightly foxed, very small pale brown stain to 2 margins of prelims, intermittent small pale damp mark affects upper inner corner on first 65 pages, otherwise contents very clean and bright. A very good copy in a handsome binding. John Bellenden (flourished 1533-1587?) of Moray was a Scottish writer born towards the close of the 15th century, and educated at St. Andrews and Paris. He was requested by James V of Scotland in 1535 to translate Livy's History of Rome into the vernacular language of Scotland but it seems he never proceeded beyond the Fifth Book. He had already at the king's request translated Hector Boece's Historia Gentis Scotorum as Chroniklis of Scotland and this was published in 1536. However apart from 2 short extracts the Livy translation had never been published until this edition of 1822. The Chroniklis and the Livy by John Bellenden remain the earliest existing specimens of Scottish literary prose. According to the Notice at the head of the book, the Livy "contains more of vernacular Scotch than the Chronicles of Scotland, which appear to have been contaminated by Latin phraseology, and perhaps too, by the emendations of a printer accustomed to the language of England".

        A Geographical Historical and Topographical Description of Van Diemen's Land

      London: John Souter, 1822. Octavo, with folding engraved view of Hobart Town after a sketch by Evans, early owner's name on title-page, a few spots; half calf, marbled boards, neatly rebacked to match. The text stolen by Jeffreys, now rightfully published. First edition of Evans' important and influential emigrants' guide to Tasmania. A separately issued map was available to buy with the book (which was 7s. 6d. without the map and a hefty 15 shillings with it) but the book is much more often seen without it.Evans' was the first separate work on the colony to have been written, though in fact it was beaten into print by a similar work by the commander of HMS Kangaroo Charles Jeffreys, who plagiarised Evans, from a stolen manuscript. Evans gives an excellent account of the geography, history and prospects of Van Diemen's Land and includes detailed procedures for prospective emigrants. Appendices list landholders, prices for agricultural produce and other relevant information for settlers.Evans was Macquarie's favourite explorer and was appointed Surveyor General of Van Diemen's Land as a reward for his fine services in exploring the territory west of the Blue Mountains and as second-in-command to Oxley. His guide to the colony began life as a guidebook for Macquarie during his tour of Van Diemen's Land; it is the best description of the state of the colony in the first decades of its existence. Evans' explorations and surveys were foremost in advancing the geographical knowledge of the colony - 'his achievements would have momentous effects on the future prosperity of the colony', as Macquarie himself said.

        Napoléon en exil à Sainte-Hélène, Relation contenant les Opinions et les Réflexions de Napoléon sur les événemens les plus importans de sa vie, et orné d’un fac simile ; recueillies Par Barry E. O’Meara, son dernier Chirurgien ; terminées par une Notice historique sur la mort de Napoléon ; le détail exact de toute les batailles qu’il a commandées en personne ; son Testament ; la dernière lettre que le général Pichegru a adressée en Angleterre après son débarquement en France ; et plusieurs Pièces officielles qui n’ont jamais été imprimées, ou sont peu connues.

      Chez Plancher, 1822 - A Paris, Chez Plancher, Libraire-éditeur de la Vie Impartiale de Napoléon, 1822. 5 parties en 2 tomes reliés en 1 vol. in 8 de XII-188-173-[1 b., 2]-203-[1 b.]-119-[1 b.]-32pp., reliure en plein veau fauve marbré de l’époque, dos lisse orné de résilles décorées de fleurons losangés et de points dorés, fleurons, frises et filets dorés, pièces de titre et de tomaison de basane rouge encadrées de filets dorés, titre et tomaison dorés, bâtonnets dorés sur les coiffes, mors supérieur du premier plat fendillé sans gravité, reliure ferme et solide, roulette dorée sur les coupes, les deux coins du plat supérieur légèrement frottés, petit ex-libris manuscrit à l’encre noire datant de 1980 dans l’angle supérieur interne de la seconde page de garde, petite réparation à la tête de la page blanche se trouvant au verso de la page 173 de la seconde partie du tome 1, rousseurs éparses, pages de garde marbrées en rouge et vert, bon et bel exemplaire. Barry Edward O’meara (1786-1836) était un chirurgien irlandais qui accompagna Napoléon Ier à l’Île de Sainte-Hélène et qui devint son premier médecin, après avoir été son chirurgien à bord du navire le ‘‘Bellrophon’’ lors de la reddition de l’Empereur. Dans son livre ‘‘Napoleon in Exile, or a voice from St. Helena’’ (1822) dont nous proposons ici la traduction française, il accuse le gouverneur Hudson Lowe d’avoir maltraité l’Empereur et d’avoir fait preuve d’inhumanité envers lui. Il écrit également avoir diagnostiqué une maladie chronique du foie de son patient. Préalablement à la publication de son ouvrage, O’Meara avait maintes fois prévenu les autorités anglaises, par l’intermédiaire d’un ami travaillant à l’Amirauté sur la situation et les traitements subis par le prisonnier de la part du gouverneur. Ces lettres n’eurent pour seul effet que l’expulsion d’O’Meara du corps de la Marine en 1818. Ces fameuses lettres furent publiées pour la première fois en 2012. Le médecin fut accusé à raison d’avoir joué double jeu : en renseignant Napoléon et Hudson Lowe. Sur ordre du ministre Bathurst, le gouverneur expulsa en juillet 1818 Barry Edward O’Meara, laissant Napoléon sans médecin personnel jusqu’à l’arrivée du docteur Antommarchi envoyé par sa famille à Rome en septembre 1819.

Savage was a printer known for his superb craftsmanship and certainly demonstrated that ability in producing this book. Many of the plates are in the most stunning color, especially noted are the title and dedication pages. Contains chapters on the history of printing, printing materials, press work, printing in colors and 10 sections in the appendix devoted to different aspects of the printing industry as it stood in 1822.

        Elemens de la grammaire chinoise, ou, Principes generaux du kou-wen ou

      1822. CHINESE GRAMMAR. Elemens de la grammaire chinoise, ou, Principes generaux du kou-wen ou style antique, et du kouan-hoa. By Jean-Pierre (Abel) Remusat. xxxii, 214, [2] pp. Illustrated with 2 folding plates and innumerable Chinese characters executed in woodcut throughout. 8vo., 230 x 155 mm, bound in contemporary calf with the front wrapper, printed on yellow paper, bound in. Paris: Imprimerie Royale, 1822. |~||~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, a fine copy of this early Chinese grammar book which features both Literary Chinese and Mandarin. It was a major achievement of Chinese philology in the early nineteenth century, as well as being one of the earliest successful books with movable Chinese and Roman types. The folding lithograph plates were executed by Charles Philibert de Lasteyrie de Saillant. Rémusat (1788-1832), along with Julius Klaproth, is recognized as one of the founders of modern Oriental scholarship in the West. In 1811 he produced an Essai sur la langue de la literature chinoise, and a paper on foreign languages among the Chinese, which procured him the patronage of Silvestre de Sacy. In 1814 a chair of Chinese was founded at the College de France for Rémusat. From this time he gave himself wholly to the languages of the Far East, and published a series of classic works, among which his contributions from Chinese sources to the history of the Tatar nations claim special notice. Rémusat became an editor of the Journal de Savants in 1818, and founder and first secretary of the Paris Asiatic Society in 1822. Between 1821 and 1831, Rémusat's heated scholarly correspondance with Wilhelm von Humbolt on the Chinese language is well documented in Lettres édifiantes et curieuses sur la langue chinoise: Un débat philosophico-grammatical (1999). Lust 1027. Brunet IV, 1216. See Walravens, China Illustrata p. 269. Not in Cordier.

      A collection of 36 pencil drawings of famous English thoroughbred race horses by at least three artists, including one signed "Harry Hall" and several others clearly based directly or indirectly on his paintings. Some horses appear in their stables or grounds, sometimes with a stable boy, groom or owner, others are shown carrying a jockey during a race at a track. The earliest horses shown include a beautiful pencil and ink-wash drawing of Camel (1822-1844), who raced from 1825 to 1827 and won the 1826 Port Stakes at Newmarket. He is better known as the sire of Touchstone (1831-1861), also shown, one of the most famous thoroughbreds of all time, who raced from 1833 to 1837.

        Original Theatrical Observer - First Irish Review & Playbill Collection ! 1821

      J.J. NOLAN, DUBLIN - 4, SUFFOLK-STREET 1822 - In most of the antiquarian theatrical observers, the theatres are named at the top of each of the playbills, this was the case for the London theatres. In this book, the theatres are not named on the playbills, so I had to do some research before I could say with any confidence which theatre these reviews and playbills related to. The book was published in Dublin, Ireland. It seems that during 1821 and 1822, the time period for this book, there was only one theatre in Dublin that was in existence. - Here is a short history of my findings: The first Theatre Royal was opened by John Ogilby in 1662 in Smock Alley. The theatre was knocked down and rebuilt in 1735 and closed in 1787. - The Second Theatre Royal - In 1820, Henry Harris bought a site in Hawkins Street and built the 2,000 seater Albany New Theatre on it at a cost of £50,000, designed by architect Samuel Beazley. This theatre opened in January of the following year [1821]. In August George IV attended a performance at the Albany and, as a consequence, a patent was granted. The name of the theatre was changed to the "Theatre Royal" to reflect its status as a patent theatre. The building work was not completed at the time of opening and early audience figures were so low that a number of side seating boxes were boarded up. - The first review in this book is dated at: No. 1. Friday, December 21st, 1821. So, this must have been a review written before the theatre was officially opened the following month in January 1821. A bound volume containing [73] individual issues, of the Theatrical observer, which were published between: Friday, 21st December 1821 to Saturday, 16th March 1822. - Complete Volume VIII [8] consists of 37 individual issues. Complete Volume IX [9] consists of 36 individual issues. - This set is actually signed on the first blank endpage, it appears to say 'half bound putum': Half-Bound - (of books) having the back bound in one material and the sides in another. May well have been written/signed by the binder before it went on sale in 1822. CONDITION & DESCRIPTION: Two tone paper boards or [half bound putum] - bind the issues. They are not in a great condition but this is the original binding. Spine is a bit tatty with original newspaper binding below and the text seems to pertain to: 'superstitions, 'abolish all monuments of superstition', Sacrifice, God, the poor and needy', etc, so it appears to be a religious text on the newspaper used under the original binding, and this would have been printed pre: 1822. I have not repaired the binding, so it is still in it's amazing first state. There are a few small paper parts from the rear board binding which are loose but present. The issues are printed on lightweight paper so there is a fair amount of browning and foxing and light soiling. Page edges are roughcut throughout. The frontispiece [unknown creator/illustrator] is loose but present. It states: 'Engraved for Nolan's Theatrical Observer, MR. TALBOT, Monsieur Morbleau, It's a wonderfully, detailed engraving. The earlier issues are 191 years old and issues from the Original Theatrical Observer, are incredibly rare. --- POSTAGE OPTIONS: Our orders are shipped within 1 or 2 business days.

        THE FIRST FIVE BOOKS OF THE ROMAN HISTORY.

      Edinburgh, printed for W. and C. Tait, 1822.FIRST EDITION 1822 translated by JOHN BELLENDEN. 4to, approximately 245 x 180 mm, 9½ x 7¼ inches, pictorial and decorated initials, pages: xii, viii, 479, finely bound in full leather, triple ruled gilt border with corner motifs and small gilt armorial device in centre of covers, raised bands to spine, gilt decoration in compartments, gilt lettering, all edges gilt, double ruled gilt inner dentelles (turn ins), marbled endpapers. Hinges rubbed and darkened, one or two minor marks to covers, couple of light scratches on lower cover, front inner paper hinge cracked, binding tight and firm, armorial bookplate on front pastedown, another small bookplate to front endpaper, endpapers slightly foxed, very small pale brown stain to 2 margins of prelims, intermittent small pale damp mark affects upper inner corner on first 65 pages, otherwise contents very clean and bright. A very good copy in a handsome binding. John Bellenden (flourished 1533 - 1587?) of Moray was a Scottish writer born towards the close of the 15th century, and educated at St. Andrews and Paris. He was requested by James V of Scotland in 1535 to translate Livy's History of Rome into the vernacular language of Scotland but it seems he never proceeded beyond the Fifth Book. He had already at the king's request translated Hector Boece's Historia Gentis Scotorum as Chroniklis of Scotland and this was published in 1536. However apart from 2 short extracts the Livy translation had never been published until this edition of 1822. The Chroniklis and the Livy by John Bellenden remain the earliest existing specimens of Scottish literary prose. According to the Notice at the head of the book, the Livy "contains more of vernacular Scotch than the Chronicles of Scotland, which appear to have been contaminated by Latin phraseology, and perhaps too, by the emendations of a printer accustomed to the language of England".

        Autograph musical quotation signed

      - Sivori "studied violin with Paganini's former teacher Giacomo Costa. Between October 1822 and May 1823 Paganini was in Genoa, and, favourably struck by the young violinist, decided to give him lessons. Paganini regarded Sivori as the only pupil for whose formation he was responsible ('the only person who can call himself my pupil', he wrote in 1828). His virtuoso repertory was based principally on his own compositions and those of Paganini, but unlike his teacher, Sivori also became an exceptional performer of Classical and early Romantic chamber music. A stylish composer, who displayed a lovely melodic vein, Sivori composed around 60 pieces." Flavio Menardi Noguera in Grove online 4 measures encompassing the range of the violin, marked "Etendue du Violon," notated on a large oblong octavo leaf (167 x 227 mm.). Inscribed "A mon collègue [!] et bon ami A. Fischer. Camillo Sivori Paris 17 Février 1882." Very slightly foxed; slight abrasion to right-hand edge.

Tre samtida ganska nötta alrotsmarmorerade skinnbd med lite avvikande rikt guldornerade ryggar, bruna titeletiketter, gröna nummerskyltar och gula snitt. Den tredje delen med röd titeletikett och grön nummerskylt och med en mindre skada upptill på ryggen. Ryggarna blekta. Ett minimalt maskhål i främre yttre falsen i första bandet. Del I har en gammal anteckning i övre hörnet på frontespisplanschen och med mindre bläckfläckar i texten på s. 59-60 samt en del hål i marginalerna på grund av pappersförtunning, t.ex. på s. 81 i nedre yttre hörnet. I den andra och tredje delen är planscherna tämligen lagerfläckiga. Med Elin Nyströms namnteckningar och en här och var återkommande stpl, "N". Ur Hjalmar Gustafssons bibliotek.. Montelius 35 nämner inte de båda graverade extraplanscherna. De föreställer båda Salebystenen vid Dagsnäs. Den ena är graverad av Elias Martin (Frölich 109) och har fått mycket fin kolorering. Endast ett fåtal ex. av boken handkolorerades och oftast enbart första delen. Titelbladet i del II och frontespisen i del III signerade C. Müller. Verket innehåller bland annat en del avbildningar av Tycho Brahes anläggningar på Ven. Historikern Nils Henric Sjöborg (1767-1838) blev professor i Lund 1799. Genom Lars von Engeströms förordnande utnämndes han 1814 till en sorts antikvitetsintendent för hela riket, med uppgift att resa runt i landet och inventera och granska fornlämningar. När förordnandet gick ut 1816, omvandlades det till tjänstledighet på livstid. Sten Lindroth skriver om föreliggande verk: "För att finansiera utgivningen lyckades Sjöborg uppbåda ett s.k. Archäologiskt sällskap med kronprins Oscar och andra mecenater i spetsen. De slösade sin välvilja på ett ovärdigt föremål, Sjöborgs Samlingar var hopplöst efter sin tid. De tre banden innehåller ett brokigt sortiment oordnade planscher av medelmåttig kvalitet jämte inledande text och bildbeskrivningar - runstenar, gravkummel och hällristningar varvade med kyrkoruiner, dopfuntar och andra medeltida kvarlevor, därtill en egyptisk mumie. Sjöborg var till typen en samlare utan ledande idéer, och hans bilderbok har närmast kuriosakabinettets prägel"

        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.
