Intended as an index to accompany a survey made in the years 1819 and 1820'. Interesting armorial bookplate of Jospeh Bowstead Wilson to front pastedown. Christopher Greenwood (17861855), land surveyor and map maker. Trained to survey small estates and farms, Greenwood learned the techniques of triangulation and the use of instruments needed to survey areas the size of counties from the engineer and surveyor, Francis Giles, who supervised his local triangulation of Yorkshire. With only the Yorkshire map in print, he had determined to map the whole of the rest of England at one inch to one mile, and Wales at three-quarters of an inch to one mile. In 1822, with eleven counties already on sale, he advertised the complete scheme in detail: a set of forty-two maps comprising 184 sheets to cost 135 guineas. Greenwood was not the first private surveyor to embark on such a risky enterpriseas it turned out, six English counties and most of Wales were never surveyedbut he came far closer than any other map maker since his fellow Yorkshireman, Christopher Saxton, in the 1570s, to surveying all the English counties. His assistant in all his county maps was his younger brother John Greenwood (17911867), who had been working for him since before he left Gisburn. In fifteen years (181530) the brothers surveyed thirty-three English and four Welsh counties; the result is thirty-five maps at a scale of one inch to one mile or thereabouts (Yorkshire and south-east Wales at three-quarters of an inch to one mile, and Middlesex at 2 inches).

      London: John Murray. 1822 - FIRST AND ONLY EDITION of this translation. Large 8vo, 217 x 130 mms., pp. xxvii [xxviii blank], 232 [233 blank, 234 colophon], including half-title, engraved portrait frontispiece of Glenbervie, 2 other engraved portraits, and two other engraved plates, contemporary calf, gilt borders on covers, spine richly gilt, all edges gilt; lacks label; upper and lower portions of joints very slightly cracked, top and base of spine slightly chipped, lacks label, library stamp on title-page,but a good to very good copy, with the following presentation inscription on the top margin of the title-page: "To Lady Baynerig/ In testimony of the sincere/ regard and affection of/ the Author." Lord Glenbervie (1743 - 1823) has endeared himself to oenologists everywhere, with his first publication, an account of Tokay published in 1773 in Philosophical Transactions, after he visited Hungary. He distinguished himself otherwise as a politician and government minister, making oodles of money from various enterprises, including his marriage to Catherine Anne North (1760–1817), to whom he had been introduced by Lord Sheffield, and who was the eldest daughter of Frederick North, second Earl of Guilford (1732–1792). He planned to publish a biography of Lord North; it never appeared, and this was his last publication. The Monthly Review commented that "Lord Glenbervie is truer to his original in every sense of poetic truth; and, consequentely, he is far better calculated to give the English reader a just idea of the merits and of the peculiar manner of Forteguerri."

        The Shipwreck

      London - JohnSharpe, 1822. London - JohnSharpe, 1822 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An epic poem telling the final voyage of the merchant ship Britannia and her crew. In the original very decorative Regency binding. Includes numerous engravings throughout. William Falconer (bap. 1732, d. 1770), poet and lexicographer, was baptized in Edinburgh on 11 February 1732, which was possibly also the day of his birth. Nothing is known of Falconer&#39;s childhood except that he had some rudimentary schooling under one Webster before he went to sea as an apprentice, probably in the coal trade from Northumberland to London, about which he makes knowledgeable references in his poetry. Evidence for Falconer&#39;s seafaring life is to be adduced from his long poem The Shipwreck, which he claims to be autobiographical. If so, by 1749 he had completed his apprenticeship and had joined a British merchant ship in the Levant trade at Alexandria as second mate. The ship, homeward bound via Venice, was driven off course by a furious gale and was wrecked at Sunium in Greece. Falconer was one of three survivors. In 1751 he was in Edinburgh for his first publication, an ode on the death of Frederick, prince of Wales. His life for the next decade is obscure. He was almost certainly at sea in merchant ships, and there is evidence from The Shipwreck that he also served in the Royal Navy and may have been in Hawke&#39;s fleet at Quiberon Bay (November 1759). A surviving logbook records that in 1760 he was serving as mate on the Vestal frigate in the north Atlantic trade. DNBCondition: In an attractive calf-leather binding with gilt decoration. Externally generally smart, lightly rubbed in places. Internally, firmly bound.

Als sich Beschwerden einer kleinen Gruppe wohlhabender Siedler gegen die Amtsführung des Gouverneurs Macquarie und dessen angebliche Bevorzugung von Ex-Sträflingen häuften, schickte man Bigge als "Commissioner". Er hielt sich 17 Monate in Australien auf, arbeitete sehr gründlich und lieferte detaillierte, äußerst aufschlussreiche Berichte. Obwohl Bigge am Status der Strafkolonie festhalten wollte, bewirkten seine Berichte letztlich das genaue Gegenteil. Er zeigte zwar Wege auf, die Kosten der Kolonie zu senken, doch um ein Gegengewicht gegen die Macquarie nahestehenden "Emancipists" zu schaffen, welche die Rechte entlassener Sträflinge stärken wollten, empfahl er die Entsendung wohlhabender Siedler der britischen Krone. Als die Berichte dem House of Commons vorgelegt wurden, war Gouverneur Macquarie bereits zurückgetreten. Die dennoch erfolgte Reform der legislativen Rechte trug wesentlich zur Eigenständigkeit der Kolonie bei. ** Bestellungen bis 14 Uhr versenden wir am selben Tag. - Schweizer Postkonto vorhanden. **

Very Good. Hardcover. James Boswell&#39;s influential biography of Samuel Johnson. Complete in four volumes. The ninth edition, revised and augmented. The Life of Samuel Johnson is regarded as an important stage in the development of the modern genre of biography; many have claimed it as the greatest biography written in English. While Boswell&#39;s personal acquaintance with his subject only began in 1763, when Johnson was 54 years old, Boswell covered the entirety of Johnson&#39;s life by means of additional research. The biography takes many critical liberties with Johnson&#39;s life, as Boswell makes various changes to Johnson&#39;s quotations and even censors many comments. Regardless of these actions, modern biographers have found Boswell&#39;s biography as an important source of information. The work was popular among early audiences and with modern critics. With a portrait of Johnson to the frontispiece of volume I. Including two fold-out plates. Bookplate of Sir Baldwin Leighton to front pastedowns and his inscriptions to front blanks, dated 1825. Condition: In calf bindings. Externally, sound with wear to extremities and cracking to two rear joints. Only a small part of one leather spine label remains. However these could readily replaced at reasonable cost. Internally, firmly bound, bright with occasional foxing, especially to plates and first and last pages. Overall: GOOD.

        View of the State of Europe During the Middle Ages. In three volumes

      London - John Murray, 1822. London - John Murray, 1822 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Henry Hallam&#39;s brilliant examination of Medieval Europe. Third Edition, revised and corrected. Complete in three volumes. Henry Hallam (9 July 1777 21 January 1859) was an English historian. Hallam&#39;s earliest literary work was undertaken in connection with the Whig periodical, the Edinburgh Review, where his review of Walter Scott&#39;s Dryden attracted attention. His first major work, The View of the State of Europe during the Middle Ages, was produced in 1818, and was followed nine years later by the Constitutional History of England. In 18381839 appeared the Introduction to the Literature of Europe in the 15th, 16th and 17th Centuries. A volume of supplemental notes to his Middle Ages was published in 1843; these facts and dates represent nearly all of Hallam&#39;s career. Hallam&#39;s View of the State of Europe during the Middle Ages (2 vols. , 1818) surveyed the political development of the principal west European countries, paying particular attention to England&#39;s Anglo-Saxon and Norman constitutions. Though Hallam&#39;s reputation rests on his work as a historian, he made other contributions to Victorian intellectual life. Given the breadth of his interests, he was an obvious participant in the learned societies and literary clubs of the day. He became a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1801, and held the office of vice-president from 1824 to 1851; he was also elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1821. He helped found London University, and sat on its council from 1828 to 1831, as well as being a founder member of the Statistical Society, and serving as its treasurer from 1834 to 1840. During the 1830s he also worked with the sixth record commission, appointed in 1831 to organize the national records, and he assisted the Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, an organization dedicated to popular education. DNBCondition: In full calf bindings. Externally generally sound although rubbed with one cracked joint, backstrip of volume III coming slightly away, some marks to the boards.

        Les Martyrs Ou Le Triomphe

      Paris - Chez La Normant, 1822. Paris - Chez La Normant, 1822 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Franois-Ren, vicomte de Chateaubriand (4 September 1768 4 July 1848) was a French writer, politician, diplomat and historian. He is considered the founder of Romanticism in French literature. His descriptions of Nature and his analysis of emotion made him the model for a generation of Romantic writers, not only in France but also abroad. The notes Chateaubriand made on his travels would later form part of a prose epic, Les Martyrs, set during the Roman persecution of early Christianity. His notes also furnished a running account of the trip itself, published in 1811 as the Itinraire de Paris Jrusalem (Itinerary from Paris to Jerusalem). The Spanish stage of the journey would inspire a third novella, Les aventures du dernier Abencrage (The Adventures of the Last Abencerrage), which appeared in 1826. Includes an armorial bookplate to the front pastedown of each volume. Includes Volume I and II of a two volume set. Fourth Edition. In French. Condition: In a gilt and blind stamped cloth binding.
