A fine copy. ---- <br><br> Brown, Astronomical Atlases p. 65; DSB VI, p. 112. - First edition of Harding&#39;s important atlas, the "well-executed and carefully thought out work of a capable observer" (Brown). Harding&#39;s career as an astronomer began in 1796 when he became a private tutor in the household of A. H. Schröter, who had a private observatory at Lilienthal, near Bremen. The best observations of great planets during that time were made at Lilienthal, mostly by Harding; and the Vereinigte Astronomische Gesellschaft was founded there. Its primary aim was to make star charts. This aim was realized only by Harding, who drew up a celestial atlas containing about 60,000 stars. While working on the chart, Harding discovered (1804) the third asteroid and named it Juno Georgia in honor of George III. He also discovered three comets..

        Travels in the interior of southern Africa

      "Longman, Hurst [et al.]" London: "Longman, Hurst [et al.]". 1822-24. "First edition, 2 volumes, 4to, pp. viii, [4], 582; [8], 648; uncut; large engraved folding map with author&#39;s track hand colored in red, plus 20 hand- colored aquatints (5 folding), and 96 beautiful wood engravings in the text (see below); slightly later half brown calf, black and tan morocco labels on spine; front joint on vol. I just starting, likewise the lower joint on vol. II; title label on vol. II slightly chipped; bookplates of James Edward Moxon and Edward Talber; Moxon&#39;s ownership signature on both title-pp. & & This copy with both half-titles. The Abbey copy in original boards had neither. See Abbey, Travel, 327 for a discussion of this, and the possibility that two different issues of the book exist, viz. the appearance of ""Hints on Emigration"" at the back of vol. II in some copies, and as part of the preliminaries (as here) of vol. I. Adding to the confusion is the British Museum copy which has both half-titles, but no ""Hints.""& & Mendelssohn I, p. 244: ""The most valuable and accurate work on South Africa published up to the first quarter of the nineteenth century, and embracing a description of a large part of the Cape Colony and Bechuanaland at this period ... The illustrations in the volumes are characterized by great beauty and accuracy ... The work is now extremely scarce, many copies having been broken up in the middle of the nineteenth century for the plates.""& & Adding to its scarcity is the fact that while 750 copies were printed of the first volume, only 500 were printed of the second. The author was an easy writer, precise in his descriptions and a well-trained and skillful zoologist and botanist, and he made important collections of the flora, fauna, and natural curiosities of the region.& & ""An important feature of the book is the series of wood-engraved vignettes in the text, fifty in Volume I and 46 in Volume II. Burchell says of these in the Preface &#39;in order to ensure greater correctness in the vignettes, the author has made all these drawings upon the blocks themselves.&#39; Burchell certainly emerges as a better artist than another missionary-traveller in South Africa, Campbell, a slight dispute with whom is mentioned in Volume II ... and is discussed in the note to Campbell&#39;s Travels in South Africa, 1815"" (Abbey)." . web and print images available

        Memoirs de Madame de Motteville, pour Sevir a l&#39;Histoire d&#39;Anne d&#39;Autriche. In five volumes

      Paris - Colnet Libraire, 1822 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce set of de Motteville&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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..

        A Pedestrian Tour of Two Thousand Three Hundred Miles, in North America. To the Lakes, -The Canadas, - And the New-England States Performed in the Autumn of 1821. Embellished with Views

      New York: J. D. Myers & W. Smith, 1822. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. An about Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher&#39;s original brick-colored lettered and decorated boards (original boards rubbed, spine -replaced but old - cracked and with some loss, front hinge held by white tape), complete with nine full-page illustrations and with two pages of advertisements to the rear. The book&#39;s front pastedown carries the bookplate of Charles H. Bell and the front free endpaper that of noted William Wordsworth collector Cynthia Morgan St. John whose Wordsworth Collection now is held by Cornell University. Charles H. Bell [aka Charles Henry Bell] served in the New Hampshire House, the New Hampshire Senate, and as Governor of New Hampshire. Stansbury conducted North American&#39;s first noted walking tour in 1821, providing in this volume some of the best early descriptions of Battlefields of the British conquest of Canada (1759 - 1763), the 1812 invasion of Canada, wars with the Native Americans ("Indians") in the New England States, and the disastrous expedition of General Burgoyne who was forced to surrender his 5,000 troops to the American revolutionary forces. In this work, Stansbury created the American walking tour literary genre, preceding later walking tour works such as Walt Whitman&#146;s &#147;Song Of The Open Road&#148; (1856), Henry David Thoreau&#146;s &#147;The Maine Woods&#148; (1854) and &#147;Cape Cod&#148; (1856), and John Muir&#146;s classic &#147;A Thousand Mile Walk To The Gulf&#148; (1912). Copies of this important work are extraordinarily scarce to the market with only two copies having appeared at auction in the last 55 years, neither of which were in their original boards. A rare copy of an important book with an excellent Provenance and in the Publisher&#39;s original boards.

Maury [New Translation, with Latin Original Text on facing versos, by J.A. Maury]. Imprimerie D&#39;Ange Clo. Line engravings with tissue guards throughout both volumes. Two volumes, octavo; vol. 1 [6] xxvii + 370 pp.; vol 2 [6], 426 pp. Half calf with marbled boards, gilt and black compartments and lettering on spine; marbled endpapers; all page edges marbled. One example in each copy, at the front pastedown, of the artful bookplate of author Kirby Flower Smith. Leather worn and soiled with three joints cracked; spine ends perished and two small spine pieces missing as well from Vol 1; light internal foxing, rarely affecting the abundant plates, and scarcely so when that occurs. A scarce antiquarian two-volume rendition, in French on rectos with Latin original text on versos opposite, of "The Golden Ass" (or, "Metamorphosis") of Apulius. The earliest known classic tale of its type, that being a rather zesty account of the ribald Thessalian adventures of a young Greek aristocrat, Lucius. Eventually, Lucius betrays a priestess - as much of a no-no then as now - and is transformed into an ass. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt. Written by Apulius in the second century A.D. Replete with [uncredited] enchanting line-drawing engravings after the fashion of Flaxman; the stylistic novelty, particularly with illustrations of ancient Greek scenes, carries more than a bit of magic. For the bookplate collector, there are two of Kirby Flower Smith&#39;s stylish plates, one in each volume. Smith authored The Elegies of Albius Tibullus, Numa and Egeria, The Tale of Gyges and the King of Lydia, and other titles. An uncommon set. L-37n

        A Pedestrian Tour of Two Thousand Three Hundred Miles, in North America. To the Lakes, -The Canadas, - And the New-England States Performed in the Autumn of 1821. Embellished with Views

      New York: J. D. Myers & W. Smith, 1822. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. An about Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher&#39;s original brick-colored lettered and decorated boards (original boards rubbed, spine -replaced but old - cracked and with some loss, front hinge held by white tape), complete with nine full-page illustrations and with two pages of advertisements to the rear. The book&#39;s front pastedown carries the bookplate of Charles H. Bell and the front free endpaper that of noted William Wordsworth collector Cynthia Morgan St. John whose Wordsworth Collection now is held by Cornell University. Charles H. Bell [aka Charles Henry Bell] served in the New Hampshire House, the New Hampshire Senate, and as Governor of New Hampshire. Stansbury conducted North American&#39;s first noted walking tour in 1821, providing in this volume some of the best early descriptions of Battlefields of the British conquest of Canada (1759 - 1763), the 1812 invasion of Canada, wars with the Native Americans ("Indians") in the New England States, and the disastrous expedition of General Burgoyne who was forced to surrender his 5,000 troops to the American revolutionary forces. In this work, Stansbury created the American walking tour literary genre, preceding later walking tour works such as Walt Whitman&#146;s &#147;Song Of The Open Road&#148; (1856), Henry David Thoreau&#146;s &#147;The Maine Woods&#148; (1854) and &#147;Cape Cod&#148; (1856), and John Muir&#146;s classic &#147;A Thousand Mile Walk To The Gulf&#148; (1912). Copies of this important work are extraordinarily scarce to the market with only two copies having appeared at auction in the last 55 years, neither of which were in their original boards. A rare copy of an important book with an excellent Provenance and in the Publisher&#39;s original boards.

      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 pigskin 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&#39;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&#39;s request translated Hector Boece&#39;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".

He married, firstly, Gladys Mary Nelson, daughter of Sir William Nelson, 1st Bt. and Margaret Hope, in October 1916. He and Gladys Mary Nelson were divorced in 1924. He married, secondly, Anabel Bertha Greenough in 1925. He and Anabel Bertha Greenough were divorced in 1928. He married, thirdly, Dorothy Kimberley Duncan, daughter of Walter Duncan, in 1929. He died in 1934. He gained the rank of Captain in the service of the Royal Horse Guards. *** "...When William Stafford&#39;s land was divided between his two daughters in the early 18th century, Laxton went to the younger daughter Ann, who married George Evans of Bulgaden Castle, County Limerick, later created first baron Carbery. Their grandson George, third baron, who died at Laxton in 1783, may have built the house which forms the core of the present Laxton Hall. On the death of the fourth baron in 1804 Laxton passed to his widow, who married her late husband&#39;s cousin George Freke Evans. He immediately improved the park, enlarged and remodelled the house, and rebuilt the village as an essay in the picturesque. The result was a model estate village for the early 19th century. An 1810 commentary says that Freke Evans had &#147;erected several new and comfortable cottages for the humble tenants of the village&#148;. - See Wikipedia **** John Drakard (1775?&#150;1854) was an English newspaper proprietor, publisher, and political radical, imprisoned for his journalism. He went into business at Stamford, Lincolnshire as a printer and book-seller at the beginning of the 19th century. On 15 September 1809 he started a weekly paper, the Stamford News. The first editor was the topographer Thomas Blore, but he and Drakard soon fell out. On 13 March 1811 Drakard was tried at Lincoln before Baron George Wood and a special jury on an ex-officio information for libel, and was sentenced to eighteen months&#39; imprisonment in Lincoln Castle, and fined £200. The subject matter of the libel was an article published in Drakard&#39;s paper for 24 August 1810, entitled "One Thousand Lashes", which dealt with the question of corporal punishment in the British Army. Drakard was defended by Henry Brougham, but was convicted, even though the Hunts, proprietors of The Examiner, had been previously acquitted on the charge of libel for publishing most of the same article. Drakard was a defendant in other libel suits. He was horsewhipped by Robert Brudenell, 6th Earl of Cardigan for some remarks in the Stamford News. Cardigan tracked him to Northampton, and gave him a public whipping on the racecourse. Drakard was also the proprietor of the Stamford Champion, a weekly newspaper which first appeared on 5 January 1830, under the name of the Champion of the East. The poet John Clare wrote anonymous political satire in it. In 1834 the publication of both his newspapers ceased, and Drakard retired to Ripley, North Yorkshire, where he lived on a meagre income. He died at Ripon on 25 January 1854, aged 79 ." - See Wikipedia . .
