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.

        The History of the Puritans; or, Protestant Nonconformists; From the Reformation in 1517 to the Revolution in 1688. Comprising an Account of Their Principles; Their Attempts for a Further Reformation in the Church; Their Sufferings; and the Lives and Characters of Their Most Considerable Divines. A New Edition, in Five Volumes: Reprinted from the Text of Dr. Toulmin's Edition, With His Life of the Author and Account of His Writings. Revised, Corrected, and Enlarged. Volumes I-V. [FIVE VOLUMES]

      London, Printed for William Baynes and Son, 1822.. Five volumes. Royal octavo. Pp. xxxv, 479; xvi, 524; xiv, 468; ix, (iii), 502; viii, 288, ccxii, including Supplement, Appendix, Index. Engraved frontispiece portrait to the first volume (offset onto title-page). Hardcover, handsomely bound in modern quarter cloth, spines with matching decorative labels, gilt; entirely untrimmed, partly unopened; occasionally light sporadic foxing. In fine condition. A most attractive set. ~ Daniel Neal (1678-1743), English historian, minister, and Nonconformist divine, was educated at the Merchant Taylors School, and at the universities of Utrecht and Leiden. In 1704 he became assistant minister, and in 1706 sole minister, of an independent congregation worshipping in Aldersgate Street, and afterwards in Jewin Street, London, where he remained almost until his death. In 1720 he published his ?History of New England?, which obtained for its author the honorary degree of M.A. from Harvard college. He also undertook to assist Dr. John Evans in writing a history of Nonconformity. Evans, however, died in 1730, and, making use of his papers for the period before 1640, Neal wrote the whole of the work himself. This ?History of the Puritans? deals with the time between the Reformation and 1689. The first volume appeared in 1732, and the fourth and last in 1738. ?The History of the Puritans? was edited, in five volumes, by Dr Joshua Toulmin (1740-1815), who added a life of Neal in 1797. This was reprinted in 1822, and an edition in two volumes was published in New York in 1844. With the small oval stamp of New College London.

        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."

      London: W. T. Gilling; printed by G. Schulze, 1822. First Edition. Half Morocco over Marbled Boards. 4to, 11 by 7.5", 28 by 19 cm. With 30 exquisite hand-colored plates. Lipperheide 907. Colas 2530. Shelfwear and rubbing to contemporary half red morocco and marbled boards. Some finger soiling to margins of plates and text leaves. Some foxing of blank preliminaries. 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.

Legrand, Bibliographie Ionienne, t. I, 1018. Loukia Droulia, 354. Édition originale de la traduction française rare. L’édition originale allemande (Reise durch Griechenland und die ionischen Inseln) fut éditée la même année (Leipzig, Brockhaus, 1822). « It is one of the earliest accounts of the experiences of a disillusioned philhellene. Müller, travelling in the Ionian Islands, set off with three friends, two Englishmen and a Hungarian, to join the Greek army at Kalamata. They were fortunate enough to be able to return to Zakynthos with only the loss of their money » (Blackmer, 1168, pour l’édition anglaise). Enthousiasme et désillusions d’un philhellène allemand, engagé volontaire au commencement de la guerre d’indépendance grecque (1821-1830). Müller dresse un tableau exact des événements grecs et donne une ample description des îles Ioniennes sous le protectorat britannique. Relation rédigée sous forme épistolaire. VERY NICE COPY.

        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.
