FOUND AUTHOR: Gardiner, Marguerite, Countess of Blessington Gardiner, Marguerite, Countess of Blessington (1789-1849) Novelist, Poet, Story Writer, Biographer, Editor, Travel Writer, Letter Writer, Essayist. Active 1822-1849 in England, Britain, Ireland, Europe; Italy, France, Continental Europe Marguerite Gardiner, Countess of Blessington, famous for her beauty, notorious for her supposedly scandalous life, was at the centre of London literary life for more than thirty years. The friend of Byron, Dickens, Bulwer-Lytton, Thackeray and Disraeli among others, she presided over a series of glittering salons and corresponded indefatigably with many of the best-known writers of the day. She was also a writer of novels, poems, short stories and travel books, and edited several successful annuals and gift-books. Born - as Margaret Power - in the small village of Knockbrit in County Tipperary, Ireland, she was the eldest daughter of an impoverished Irish squire and his well-born wife. A shy, and not overly attractive child, she was educated by a lady well-wisher and by a course of self-imposed reading. By her early teens she had become a beauty, and when she was fourteen her father forced her into an arranged marriage to Captain Maurice St Leger Farmer. Her husband proved to be an abusive alcoholic and she returned home after only a few months. Her next few years are not well documented, but from about 1806 she lived in Hampshire as the kept mistress of a landed Englishman, Captain Thomas Jenkins. In 1815 she met the wealthy earl of Blessington, who reputedly paid £10,000 to Jenkins for the transfer of her favours to himself. Blessington set about trying to obtain a divorce for her, but this proved to be unnecessary, as in 1817 her husband died after falling from a window, and the couple were able to marry. They spent the next few years living in the greatest of luxury in London: politicians, peers, writers and painters flocked to their house in St James's Square. Her reputation had preceded her, however, and respectable ladies neither called on her nor invited her to their homes. In 1822 she published two slim volumes of essays of mild satire and social comment, The Magic Lantern and Sketches and Fragments, and a travel book, Journal of a Tour through the Netherlands to Paris. In 1823 the Blessingtons set out for a protracted tour of the continent, on which they were joined by Alfred, Count d'Orsay. At just twenty-one, he was twelve years younger than the countess, whose lover he was generally believed to be. Arriving in Genoa, in Italy, they called on Byron and spent six weeks riding, dining and conversing with the poet. They spent five years in Italy, during which time d'Orsay contracted a marriage with the Earl's sixteen-.

        Cary's New Map of England and Wales, with Part of Scotland.

      [London]: G. & J. Cary, 1822. - 4to., (12 1/8 x 10 1/8 inches). 2-page publisher's Advertisement, engraved title page, Dedication page, and "Explanations" page. Double-page engraved "General Map" giving Greenwich as the meridian, with original hand-color in full, 77 engraved numbered (1-81) maps with original hand-color in outline (occasional spotting). Brown cloth library binding, the smooth spine lettered in gilt (extremities bumped, one or two pale stains). Second edition, first published in 1794. The general map of England and Wales is "is the first map on the meridian of Greenwich instead of London (St. Paul's Cathedral) which had been used on English maps from its introduction by John Seller in 1676" (Wardington sale catalogue). There are in fact four meridians that pass through the Royal Observatory in Greenwich: the first was Flamsteed's, established in 1675 and named for the celebrated Astronomer Royal; the second was established by Edmund Halley in 1725; the third after James Bradley; and the fourth in 1851 by Sir George Airy. This last was designated the Prime Meridian at an international conference in Washington in 1884, even though France continued to use their own meridian in creating maps for several decades to come. "Cary's first known engraved plan is dated 1779. Henceforth, the quality of his engraving established new standards and a new style, with his effective, starkly beautiful, plain design being widely adopted. His firm's cartographic output was prolific and diverse, ranging through maps, plans, atlases, astronomical and educational works, road-books (including works based on surveys by Aaron Arrowsmith the elder, who probably trained him), guides, and globes. Particularly noteworthy are the immensely popular New and Correct English Atlas (editions from 1787), which became the standard county atlas of the period, and the Traveller's Companion (from 1790), the printing plates of both of which had to be replaced having become worn in the effort to meet the huge demand, and the particularly fine New English Atlas (from 1801) and New Universal Atlas (from 1808)" (David Smith for DNB).

        The Poems of Ossian, Translated by. Authenticated, Illustrated and Explained by Hugh Campbell.

Contemporary half sheep, extremities worn and spine slightly cracked. A scarce edition of Macpherson’s controversial poems, in his lifetime ridiculed as forgeries while he adamantly claimed them as originals. The truth seems to be between these extremes; that Macpherson did indeed collect a wealth of oral verse from his trips to the Highlands, and on his return edit and expand it for publication.

        Memoirs de Madame de Motteville, pour Sevir a l'Histoire d'Anne d'Autriche. In five volumes

      Paris - Colnet Libraire 1822 - A scarce set of de Motteville's history of Queen Anne of Austria. Complete in five volumes. Franoise Bertaut de Motteville (c. 1621 1689), French memoir writer, was the daughter of Pierre Bertaut, a gentleman of the king's chamber, and niece of the bishop-poet Jean Bertaut. Her mother, a Spaniard, was the friend and private secretary of Anne of Austria, wife of Louis XIII. At the age of seven Franoise was also made a member of the Queen's household. The influence of Richelieu, however, who wished to separate the queen from her Spanish connections, exiled mother and daughter to Normandy. In 1642 the Queen summoned Mme de Motteville to court afterthe death of Richelieu and Louis XIII. Some of her letters are preserved, but her chief work is her Mmoires, which are in effect a history of Anne of Austria. They give a faithful picture of court lifeat that time.

Some marginal tidemarks to Volume I and damp staining to the first few pages of Volumes III and IV. Pp204-217 of Volume II has been previously reinforced. Overall: GOOD. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        from an actual Survey made in the Years 1820 & 1821, By C. & I. Greenwood, London. Map of the County of Chester,

      Published by the Proprietors, Greenwood & Pringle & Co., 13 Regent Street, Pall Mall, June 1st, 1822., London, - Greenwood's large-scale map of Cheshire Large engraved map on four sheets, dissected and mounted on linen, in four sections, fine original full-wash colour, edged in green silk, housed in original tree calf pull-off slipcase, rubbed and scuffed. The maps by Christopher and John Greenwood set new standards for large-scale surveys. Although they were unsuccessful in their stated aim to map all the counties of England and Wales it is probably no coincidence that of the ones they missed, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Herefordshire, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Oxfordshire, all except Cambridgeshire were mapped by Andrew Bryant in a similar style and at the same period. From a technical point of view the Greenwoods' productions exceeded the high standards set in the previous century though without the decoration and charming title-pieces that typified large scale maps of that period.The Greenwoods started in 1817 with Lancashire and Yorkshire and by 1831 they had covered 34 counties. Their maps were masterpieces of surveying and engraving techniques, and in view of the speed at which they were completed, their accuracy is remarkable. They mark the boundaries of the counties, hundreds and parishes, churches and chapels, castles and quarries, farmhaouses and gentlemen's seats, heaths and common land, woods, parliamentary representatives and distances between towns. The price of 3 guineas each compares with the the first edition Ordnance Survey sheets of 7s 6d, though the latter did not relate to complete counties.

        Jeu Des Habitants de Californie

      - A detailed hand colored lithographic print from Louis Choris’s sweeping series “Voyage Pittoresque Autour du Monde”, published in Paris by Firmin Didot in 1822. This print measures 16.5”x10”. Louis (or Ludovik) Choris, a Russian of German extraction, showed a talent for natural history at a remarkably early age, and won high praise for his work on Biberstein’s journey to the Caucasus in 1813. The present views recall the voyage of the “Rurik,” 1815-1818, commanded by the Russian Otto von Kotzbue, and the expedition's search for the Northwest Passage, entering the Pacific via the Horn and returning to Europe via the Cape of Good Hope and St. Helena. Choris, the official artist on the expedition, was invited by the St. Petersberg Academy to accompany Kotzbue and the present work represents a fine cross section of the places that the expedition visited: itincludes views of Teneriffe, Brazil, Chile, the Pacific Islands, Hawaii, Kamchatka, Philippines, the Cape of Good Hope and Saint Helena. Choris's magnificent work offers important pictorial representations of the people, landscape, and artifacts of the then mysterious islands of the Pacific, California, Alaska, the northwest coast of America, and other far-off lands. This work has great American interest because of its lithographs and its account of Hawaii, California, the Queen Charlotte Islands, the Aleutians, St. Lawrence Island in the Bering Sea, and Kotzebue Island in Alaska. The lithographs are of all aspects of native life and culture. Choris's book is considered to be one of the most beautiful relating to travel. A map of the route of expedition accompanies the work. The book was issued in 22 parts, and complete copies with all the plates colored are very rare. Overall this print is in good condition with some foxing and staining.

        Habitans des Isles Aleoutiennes

      - A detailed hand colored lithographic print from Louis Choris’s sweeping series “Voyage Pittoresque Autour du Monde”, published in Paris by Firmin Didot in 1822. This print measures 16.5”x10”. Louis (or Ludovik) Choris, a Russian of German extraction, showed a talent for natural history at a remarkably early age, and won high praise for his work on Biberstein’s journey to the Caucasus in 1813. The present views recall the voyage of the “Rurik,” 1815-1818, commanded by the Russian Otto von Kotzbue, and the expedition's search for the Northwest Passage, entering the Pacific via the Horn and returning to Europe via the Cape of Good Hope and St. Helena. Choris, the official artist on the expedition, was invited by the St. Petersberg Academy to accompany Kotzbue and the present work represents a fine cross section of the places that the expedition visited: itincludes views of Teneriffe, Brazil, Chile, the Pacific Islands, Hawaii, Kamchatka, Philippines, the Cape of Good Hope and Saint Helena. Choris's magnificent work offers important pictorial representations of the people, landscape, and artifacts of the then mysterious islands of the Pacific, California, Alaska, the northwest coast of America, and other far-off lands. This work has great American interest because of its lithographs and its account of Hawaii, California, the Queen Charlotte Islands, the Aleutians, St. Lawrence Island in the Bering Sea, and Kotzebue Island in Alaska. The lithographs are of all aspects of native life and culture. Choris's book is considered to be one of the most beautiful relating to travel. A map of the route of expedition accompanies the work. The book was issued in 22 parts, and complete copies with all the plates colored are very rare. Overall this print is in good condition with some foxing and staining.

        Vers merins from Voyage Pittoresque Autour du Monde

      Paris, 1822 - Louis Choris (1795-1828) Vers merins from Voyage Pittoresque Autour du Monde Hand-colored lithograph Paris, 1822 14 3/4” x 20 1/2” framed Louis (or Ludovik) Choris, a Russian of German extraction, showed a talent for natural history illustration at a remarkably early age, and initially won high praise for his pictorial work on Biberstein's journey to the Caucasus in 1813. His most celebrated publications, however, were the Voyage Pittoresque Autour du Monde and the Vues et Paysages des Regions Equinoxiales. In both of these magnificent works, Choris provided important pictorial representations of the people, landscape, and artifacts of the still-mysterious islands of the Pacific, California, Alaska, the northwest coast of America, and other far-off lands. Choris had first-hand knowledge of these places, having been the official artist accompanying the Russian expedition around the world led by Otto von Kotzebue, the primary object of which was the search for a Northwest Passage. The voyage took place in 1815-1818 aboard the “Rurik,” which entered the Pacific via the Horn and eventually returned to Europe via the Cape of Good Hope and St. Helena. Choris had been invited by the St. Petersburg Academy to accompany Kotzbue, and the two published works which resulted represent a fine cross-section of the places that the expedition visited, specifically including such locales as Teneriffe, Brazil, Chile, the Pacific Islands, Hawaii, Kamchatka, the Philippines, the Cape of Good Hope and Saint Helena. These works have great American interest because of their lithographs and accounts of California, the Queen Charlotte Islands, the Aleutians, St. Lawrence Island in the Bering Sea, and Kotzebue Island in Alaska. The illustrations concern all aspects of native life and culture, and Choris’s books are considered to be one of the most beautiful relating to travel.
