        PHARSALIA

      Parisiis: Apud Lefevre Bibliopolam, 1822. n. Hardcover. Unusually Delicate and Fine for Such Small Paintings. 108 x 76 mm (4 1/4 x 3"). Two volumes. Edited by Jean-Augustin Amar. Charming contemporary green straight-grain morocco, covers panelled with fine gilt and blind rolls, raised bands, spine compartments outlined in blind and with pretty quatrefoil gilt centerpiece ornament, gilt titling, turn-ins with decorative gilt roll, all edges gilt. EACH VOLUME WITH A LOVELY PASTORAL FORE-EDGE PAINTING, one depicting Fetherstone Castle, Northumberland, the other Lowther Castle, Westmoreland. In later green cloth chemises and a quarter morocco slipcase, its spine decorated in much the same fashion as the volumes. Front pastedown of both volumes with the armorial bookplate of Sir James Stuart, Bart.; front free endpaper of both volumes with the oval morocco bookplate of R. B. Adam; front free endpaper of first volume with the oval morocco bookplate of Mary Lecomte du Nouy. Brunet III, 1201; Graesse IV, 274. Joints just slightly rubbed, spines faintly and uniformly darkened, a touch of browning to edges of leaves, intermittent light foxing, otherwise a fine set, the text generally clean and fresh, the bindings lustrous, and the fore-edge paintings particularly well preserved, with rich colors. These lovely little volumes stand out on multiple levels. The book was finely printed by Pierre Didot of the renowned French firm; the delicacy and intricacy of the binding decoration is notable (partly because of the small size of the volumes); and the fore-edge paintings--which seem to be early, perhaps even from the time of publication--are particularly well executed. Characterized by serene bovinity, our two paintings each feature a massive castle in the background, trees sufficient to frame the scene, and just enough action (involving two gentlemen and their dogs in the Westmoreland painting) to diminish lassitude without extinguishing tranquility. The artist has exhibited impressive deftness in creating convincing natural and human elements, and the notable level of aesthetic achievement here is emphasized by the diminutive area that these scenes occupy: one just doesn't often see such excellent paintings on such small books. Lucan, the Spanish born nephew of Seneca, was famous for his precocious literary achievements, but all that has come down to us is his "Pharsalia," the last of his poems, published after his death. This epic, the greatest in Latin other than the "Aeneid," chronicles the civil war between Caesar and Pompey, whose forces were defeated at the battle of Pharsalia. Our volume has very distinguished provenance. It was once owned by Sir James Stuart (1780-1853), an English lawyer and bibliophile who served as Chief Justice of Lower Canada. (It is listed on p. 121 of the catalogue of his library published in 1987.) Robert B. Adam (1863-1940), a member of the inner circle of bibliophiles that included Jerome Kern, Chauncey Brewster Tinker, and A. Edward Newton, assembled what was considered to be the finest collection in America of material relating to Samuel Johnson; a catalogue of his collection was published by Oxford University Press in four volumes in 1929. And Mary Harriman Lecomte du Nouy (d. 1974) was the American wife of French biophysicist and philosopher Pierre Lecomte du Nouy, with whom she shared a zeal for book collecting.

        Color Plate] Chrysal, or, The adventures of a guinea: wherein are exhibited views of several striking scenes : with interesting anecdotes of the most noted persons in every rank of life through whose hands it has passed, by an Adept [12 hand-colored plates]

      Printed for Samuel Richards and Co. 3, Grocers'-Hall Court, Poultry; and T. Mason & Sons, 2, Great Russel Street, Bloomsbury, London 1822 - Complete in three volumes. 12mo; viii, 319; 321; 326pp, plus 12 hand-colored plates engraved variously by Maddocks, E. F. Burney, and W. Read. Uniformly rebound to style by Fitterer, with period marbled paper-covered boards and modern paper labels; top edges gilt; end papers renewed with laid paper. Binding pristine; some gatherings foxed in volume I, otherwise a very good or better set with only sporadic foxing and offsetting from the plates, which are generally fresh and bright. Originally published pseudonymously in 1760 in 2 vols., then in an octavo color-plate edition, "To which is now prefixed a sketch of the author's life" (spelled here Johnston or Johnson; elsewhere Johnstone) in 1822, which Tooley (no. 283) calls the "best edition" of the "best scandalous chronicle of the day." OCLC Number: 187449866. This, Johnston's chief work, "appeared in four volumes between 1760 and 1765. The first and second volumes were written during a visit to the earl of Mount-Edgcumbe in Devon and had already gone through three editions before Johnstone was prevailed on to write the last two volumes, and the whole work was frequently reprinted during the eighteenth century (and translated into French). An excoriating satire that won Johnstone respect as a wit but few friends, the novel is set roughly during the period of the Seven Years' War (1757–63) and pretends to reveal political secrets, and to expose the private profligacy of many of the well-known—and highly colourful—public characters of the time."

Still, tissue guards intact and overall quite clean, with plates fresh, bright, and like small fine paintings, and the pictures are more richly detailed than the typical aquatint costume books of the same vintage. The illustrations also capture perfectly the folkish, even naive, simplicity associated with Swiss culture at the time yet with elegance. There is, in other words, no crudeness or coarseness to the figures depicted. A most extraordinary achievement, comparable to the paintings of Lory of the same period.

        The Pirate

      London; Archibald Constable. 1822, 1822. First Edition. Second Issue ("There" correctly spelt on p.17 of vol II). 3 volumes. 8vo. Bound in contemporary half calf over marbled boards, titled and decoratively diced to spine. Slight inoffensive edgewear to extremities and boards, one inch cosmetic split to front lower hinge of Volume II, not visibly affecting strength of book. A handsome and pleasing set. Very good indeed. Scott's sensationalist reworking (two words he woke up with in his head every morning) of the Pirate Gow, a little bit of Defoe and a considerable amount of Scott anecdote picked up on his tours of Northern Lighthouses in his role of Commissioner go to make a charming and quite satisfying bit of nautical romance.

        The Pirate Fight (The Action of 9 November 1822)

      Washington, D.C.: The National Intelligencer, 1822. Newspaper. Very Good. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall. A complete four-page newspaper of 5 December 1822 recounts the battle between the American Schooner USS Alligator, commanded by Lieutenant William Allen, of the West Indies Squadron and three pirate ships, probably commanded by Diabolito, off the coast of Cuba on 9 November 1822. It occupies over 18" of front page column space and has a large, capitalized headline. The paper reports details of the encounter. At the time of battle, the pirate force had in its possesion five US merchant vessels. The Alligator, although out-gunned and out-manned, had an experienced crew, which had recently captured another ship after a bloody battle, and commander; Allen had also commanded the USS Argus when it engaged the HMS Pelican during the War of 1812. Allen and his crew manned launches from the Alligator in an attempt to board the principal pirate vessel, the Revenge, which fired upon the Americans with grape and roundshout. Rather than attempt to fight off the boarding attempt, the pirates abandoned the Revenge and fled to their other two ships. As Allen turned his boats to continue the attack, they came under withering fire from the pirates. In an attempt to rally his men, Allen stood up and was cut down by musket fire. The two remaining pirate ships fled the battle during the resulting confusing, leaving the Revenge and the five merchant ships the Alligator. Allen became an immediate naval hero, and his name was used as a rallying cry a year later when the Navy defeated another pirate force and killed Diabolito in the same area The paper is toned but supple; generally clean with some staining at the upper right. The spine appears to have been neatly mended.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Köthen, 14. VI. 1822. - 1 S. 8vo. Faltspuren. Großer und inhaltsreicher Brief an einen Hofjuwelier: „[ ] Ich bin mit der Besserung im Ganzen zufrieden. Wenigstens können wir die gegründete Hoffnung schöpfen, dass ich Ihrer bösen Krankheit Meister werden könne. Sie erhalten hier 32 Pulver, die Sie auf gleiche Art einnehmen (und vier Extrapulver A, B, C, D). Erfolgt auf die Einnahme der ersten 5, 6, 7 Pulvernummern die erwünschte Besserung , so nehmen Sie die Nummern so lange fort, als das tägliche Befinden gut ist. Nimmt aber das Beste Befinden Stillstand und wird wieder schlimmer, so zaudern Sie nicht, die drei Extrapulver A, B, C jeden Abend aus eben der Pulvernummer zu nehmen. Ist dieß zum Wohlbefinden nicht hinreichend, und kommen nach einigen Tagen wieder böße Stunden, so nehmen Sie sogleich, zu welcher Tagesstunde es sei, das Extrapulver D ein und fahren mit den Nummernpulvern Abends so fort bis zu Ende. Ich erwarte den besten Erfolg. Des Ronneburger Mineralwassers dürfen Sie sich nicht bedienen, weder zum Trinken noch zum Baden, ja ich rathe Ihnen, den Herrn Postverwalter Leutner, nebst meinem Gruße, zu bitten, Ihnen Wasser aus Ihrer Gegend zum Trinken und Waschen anzuzeigen, was gar kein Eisen enthält. In ganz schwülen Tagen können Sie sich mit solchem eisenfreien Wasser etwas Frische über den ganzen Körper, Reinlichkeit halber schnellabwaschen, so daß Sie nebst dem Abtrocknen binnen 5 Minuten damit fertig sind, und so etwas draust langsam spaziren gehen können. Ich bitte mir recht vollständigen Tagesbericht aus, mit Beifügung des täglichen Wetters. Meinen besten Empfehl an meinen Freund Frenzel.[ ]". – Sehr selten. - Knickspuren.

        Pl. 70 Le Kaire: Citadel from Description de l'Egypt ou Recueil des observations qui ont été faites pendant l'expédition de l'armée française

      Paris 1822 - Edme-François Jomard Published by Louis-Fleury Panckoucke Second Edition: Paris, 1822. Hand-colored copperplate engraving 20" x 26"; 23.5" x 27.5" framed While Napoleon Bonaparte’s Egyptian military campaign was an unmitigated disaster, for the scientists, artists and historians who accompanied him it was an unqualified success. His invasion was designed to halt Great Britiain’s land trade route to India, thus striking a fatal blow to its economy and allowing Napoleon the opportunity to conquer the Indian sub-continent. As he stated in his memoirs: “Europe presents no field for glorious exploits; no great empires or revolutions are to be found, but in the East where there are six hundred million men . . . My glory is declining. This little corner of Europe is too small to supply it. We must go East. All the great men of the world have there acquired their celebrity.” He planned to be a new Alexander the Great, bringing glory to France and, more importantly, to himself. In July 1798, 400 French transport ships landed 34,000 troops and approximately 1,000 civilians near Alexandria. The former were to spend three miserable years fighting the British with only one third of them surviving the grueling conditions. Indeed, Napoleon abandoned his army only one year into the campaign to return to France and stage a coup d’etat which eventually crowned him Emperor. The civilians who had arrived with them were to fair rather better than their military compatriots. They were the scholars whose work was to eventually fill the pages of the twenty-two volume tome Description de l’Egypt which was to remain the authoritative guide to Egyptology for several decades. The Institut d’Egypte in Cairo was founded by Napoleon on August 22, 1798 and was modeled after the Institut de France. It was the umbrella for an encyclopedic number of research fields and was crucial to the organization of information in the Description de l’Egypt. These disciplines included archeology, botany, natural history and cartography and in each case required not only a retinue of scientists but also of artists who pictorially described Egypt. Their illustrations filled twelve volumes of the Description de l’Egypt comprising 925 plates in all and first published between 1809 and 1826 under the editorship of Edme-François Jomard. It was dedicated to Napoleon Bonaparte and the artists employed were amongst France’s finest. The painter André Dutertre, and archaelogist and historian Dominique Vivant Denon, contributed substantially to the section on literature and the arts, while Henri-Joseph Redouté, the brother of Pierre-Joseph, devoted himself to natural history. Upon his return to Paris, Henri-Joseph was also to make botanical studies to illustrate the work of Etienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire and Alire Raffeneau-Delile on the flora and fauna of the Nile Valley. His brother Pierre-Joseph and the famed artist Jacques Barraband had not taken part in the expedition but did provide illustrations for the Description de l’Egypt. Thus, this monumental work was the culmination of many years of study and dedication by France’s leading scientists and artists. It was a ground-breaking study for its time and remains an important milestone in the study of Egypt and its treasures.

        AN ACCOUNT OF THE LATE INTENDED INSURRECTION AMONG A PORTION OF THE BLACKS OF THIS CITY. PUBLISHED BY THE AUTHORITY OF THE CORPORATION OF CHARLESTON

      Charleston: Printed by A.E. Miller, 1822.. 48pp. Modern half calf and marbled boards, leather spine label. Portion of titlepage, an approximately 1" by 2" rectangle affecting the words "the Late Intended Insurrection" excised, supplied in facsimile, also removing the text of the City Council resolution on the verso. Old tape repair across upper portion of text on pp.9-10. Else good. The primary contemporary account of the 1822 slave uprising in Charleston, South Carolina, written by James Hamilton, the Intendant (Mayor) of Charleston. This is the first edition, followed by two more Charleston editions and a Boston edition, all in the same year. All are rare. Led by Denmark Vesey, a former slave who had fought for his freedom, the planned uprising was exposed by one of the conspirators before it even began. Vesey and thirty- four other African-Americans were convicted of conspiracy to seize the city of Charleston and executed. Several others who were arrested and were found guilty were imprisoned or sent out of the state, while some were found not guilty and returned to their owners. The first thirty pages give a narrative how the plot was uncovered and an account of the trials. The appendix includes summaries of testimony, confessions, a table of the defendants, and the sentence of defendant Jack Pritchard, also known as "Gullah Jack." Vesey receives the lion's share of the blame in the conspiracy, driven by "a malignant hatred of whites, and inordinate lust of power and booty," though the leaders of the local African Methodist Church (several of the insurrectionists came from their ranks) also receive some blame. In a note "to the public" at the start of the text, Hamilton writes that he has, at the request Charleston City Council, brought together all the evidence of the plot and the account of its aftermath to show that "there can be no harm in the salutary inculcation of one lesson, among a certain [i.e. slave] portion of population, that there is nothing they are bad enough to do, that we are not powerful enough to punish." The Vesey uprising and the Nat Turner rebellion in Virginia in 1831 terrified white southerners, especially slaveowners, and led to more repressive treatment of slaves. Though the printer, A.E. Miller, advertises that this pamphlet was available for twenty-five cents, "discount by the hundred," it is quite rare in the market; this firm has handled one perfect copy, sold for $15,000.

        Délassements de l'esprit ou Manuscrit complet de Littérature En tous genres, politique, Philosophique, et morale, tiré des meilleurs Auteurs tant anciens que modernes, et contenant des Pièces inédites. En deux parties avec une Table des matières à la fin de chaque partie, Par Pierre Francois Blondeau. [manuscrit ]

      1822 - Livre ancien 1ère partie : 832 p. 2ème partie : 586 p. Une imposante compilation de chansons manuscrite. Cette impressionnante compilation rédigée sur plusieurs années regroupe plusieurs centaines de pièces rares ou curieuses, allant de l'envolée patriotique, à la satire de moeurs, en passant par le vaudeville et la chanson à boire. Ecrite d'une ample et très lisible écriture appliquée, chaque pièce est présentée par des tires de différentes couleurs - rouge, vert, ocre, or, bleu, etc. - dans des effets calligraphiques remplissant parfois toute la page. Les pièces de Voltaire y côtoient les couplets révolutionnaires entonnés lors de la célébration des Arbres de la Liberté. Plus loin, une chanson grivoise extrêmement crue succède à l'hymne chantée devant l'Eglise métropolitaine de Paris le jour de la Fête de la Raison. Certains airs ont visiblement été choisis parce ce qu'ils étaient à la mode, et d'autres pour leur côté provocateur. Cette surprenante production est passée entre les mains d'un amateur anglais, William Bury, dont on voit la signature autographe. Pourrait-il s'agir du William Henry Berry, célèbre assassin pendu pour le meurtre de sa femme, et que d'aucuns suspecte d'être le véritable Jack l'Eventreur ? Condition : Fort in-folio, en pleine basane cerise, orné sur les plats d'une importante composition estampée à froid à motif de lyre, encadrée d'une roulette palmée, dos plat. 1er plat détaché. 1200g.

        Veduta del Tempio della Fortuna Virile

      Rome 1822 - This is the Temple of Portuna, the god of the harbours. This is a very good example of a Republican temple built under Greek influence. Luigi Rossini was a master engraver who produced over one thousand plates of buildings, ruins, gardens and monuments. His career coincided with a period of great archeological activity. His etchings of Rome followed Piranesi\'s example, and reported the latest excavations to an avidly interested European audience. In turn, as they were carried home by Northern Europeans on the Grand Tour, the etchings fuelled worldwide interest in classical architecture., Image Size : 385x535 (mm), 15.125x21 (Inches), Platemark Size : 400x543 (mm), 15.75x21.375 (Inches), Paper Size : 520x740 (mm), 20.5x29.125 (Inches), Black & White, Copper Engraving

        Autograph letter signed to André Melly

      Geneva, 1822. <p>Boissier, Henri (1762-1845). Autograph letter signed to André Melly (1802-51). Geneva, 21 March 1822. 2pp. plus integral address leaf. 202 x 155 mm. Docketed.</p><p>From Professor Henri Boissier, founder of Geneva&#39;s natural history museum, to the young Swiss businessman André Melly, acting as the museum&#39;s purchasing agent in England, regarding the purchase of insect specimens for the museum. Boissier informs Melly that the museum&#39;s collections have recently been augmented "par un don de coléopteres de M. le Dr. Peschier où il y a de bonnes choses, & par un achast de quelques bons papillons & insectes exotiques que m&#39;a procuré M. Prévost" [by a gift of coleoptera from Dr. Peschier containing some good things, and by a purchase of several good butterflies and foreign insects from M. Prévost].This last purchase "a un peu réduit la somme que la cours avait mit à ma disposition. Je ne peut donc vous faire payer pour le moment qu&#39;un bon de f. 400 que je vous prie d&#39;employer, comme vous le jugerai convenable, surtout en orthoptères, hémiptères & névroptères dont nous sommes très mal fournis" [has reduced somewhat the amount made available to me from the course. At this moment I can only pay you the sum of 400 francs which I urge you to use, as you see fit, primarily for orthoptera, hemiptera and neuroptera, which we greatly lack]. Boissier lists several species of each that he wishes to acquire, including "criquets & sauter[elles] exotiq[ues]" [foreign crickets and grasshoppers] and "termites ou fourmis blanches" [termites or white ants]. He instructs Melly to expedite the shipment of insects to him so that he will have enough time to unpack them and put them in cases.</p><p>"Dr. Peschier" may refer to Geneva native Charles Gaspard Peschier (1782-1853), a pioneer of homeopathic medicine in French-speaking countries. M. Prévost, another Genevan, was a founder of the firm of Prévost and Morris in London. Boissier&#39;s correspondent, André Melly, ended up settling in England in 1822 (the year that this letter was written), and becoming a prominent businessman in northern England. He acted as agent to the Viceroy of India and then to the Egyptian Government, dying of fever while on a tour of the Nile in 1851. </p>

        Three panoramic views of Port Jackson, in New South Wales, with the town of Sydney, and the adjacent scenery. After original drawings by . Taylor. drawn from nature. between 1817 and 1822

      - From an edition limited to 110 copies, printed from the original printing plates in 1988 employing the same techniques as used in 1823. This fine edition was published as a collaborative effort between the State Library of New South Wales and the renowned fine art publishers, Alecto Editions. "By 1820, Sydney was a town of 12,000 inhabitants, about a third of whom were convicts. It had grown dramatically during the administration of Lachlan Macquarie who was appointed governor of New South Wales in 1810. Unlike previous governors, Macquarie was not content merely to oversee a penal colony. His vigorous building programme changed forever the appearance of Sydney, while his policy of accepting emancipated convicts as respected citizens demonstrated a social attitude strangely out of step with the times. Both these policies earned him criticism. In 1819, alarmed by Macquarie's extravagant public works, the British Government commissioned a lawyer and civil servant, J.T.Bigge, to investigate. The attacks by his critics were met head on by Macquarrie's supporters in New South Wales. Books, pamphlets and paintings luded the governor's undoubted achievements. Almost certainly Major Taylor's drawings were used in, if not commissioned for, this cause. The engraved views of the Panorama present a flattering image of the Australian seat of government and, by extension, of Macquarie's term there.Taylor arranged the engraving and printing of the of the three sheet Panorama. upon his return to England in July 1822.Havell appears to have worked from [Taylor's]. large watercolours, but amended them with additional details. and decorative elements.It is most fortuitous that the copper plates.have survived. There is no other example of such a case for 19th century Australian engravings." Three plates, engraved by Robert Havell and son, printed by Edward Egerton-Williams in colours and finished by hand, each with printer's blindstamp.

        Vue de L'Ile de L'Ascension Prise du Mouillage

      Paris: 1822-25 - Louis-Isidore Duperrey (1786-1865) View from Voyage autour du Monde Historie du Voyage Paris: 1822-25 Hand-colored engravings 12 ¾" x 9 ½"; 22" x 18 ½" framed The only other Europeans besides the English to play a significant part in mapping the Pacific including New Zealand's coastline and were the French. From 1800 to 1840, there were ten major French voyages to Australia and the Pacific. The main purpose of these was scientific, however there was also an unspoken goal of discovering where France might carve out an empire of her own in the South Pacific. In addition to the vast collections of specimens and scientific data that were brought back, these voyages were distinguished by the publication of the most sumptuous collections of engravings noting not only the native plants and animals, but also the geography of the land and nature of its inhabitants. Scientists, artists and engravers-attached to the Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris were paid by the French Government and worked over many years to produce these extraordinary documentations of each voyage. Of great note is the expedition lead by Lois-Isidore Duperrey on the vessel named Coquille which left Toulon August 11, 1822 and arrived in Marseilles on March 24, 1825. Duperrey joined the navy in 1802, and served as marine hydrologist to Louis Claude de Saulces de Freycinet aboard the Uranie (1817-1820), a previous expedition that had earned Duperrey praise and granted him the opportunity to command his own ship on what would become one of the greatest French expeditions to the Pacific. Duperrey proceeded to the Pacific by way of Brazil and Cape Horn. Stops were made along the coats of Chile and Peru, and in the Society, Gilbert , Marshall and Caroline islands. Other islands visited included the Tuamoto, Archipelago, Tahiti, Tonga and Rotuma. The expedition also made important exploratory visits to Australia, New Guinea and New Zealand, where the Maoris were visited. The entire voyage took almost three years. By far the greatest contributions of the expedition were scientific, cartographic, and ethnographic. 1200 Insects, 288 fishes, 264 birds, 63 reptiles and quantities of plants were collected and beautifully described and reproduced in the exquisitly colored plates of the several atlases of Voyage autour du Monde. Recordings were made on Polynesian languages, costumes, weapons and religious artifcats. Duperrey is given credit for discovering the Caroline and Gilbert islands, and for correcting errors in earlier charts of the Society Islands. Duperrey's also continued to explore the French interest in Tahiti and the Society Islands, which culminated in their annexation by France. His expedition also proved to be a catalyst for French missionary endeavors in the South Pacific to contest with Protestant Englishmen. His explorations of Australia and New Zealand were less significant politically, since the British opposed any French settlement there. Nonetheless, this largely scientific endeavor opened the door to a much more aggressive French policy in the South Pacific.
