        [Color Plate] The history of Johnny Quæ Genus : the little foundling of the late Doctor Syntax : a poem

      London: Published By R. Ackermann, At The Repository Of Arts, 101, Strand, London; And To Be Had Of All The Booksellers In The United Kingdom, 1822. Full Leather. Very Good +. [iv],267 [pagination irregular but text complete],[1]pp, with 24 hand-colored aquatints by Thomas Rowlandson. Contemporary straight-grain morocco gilt, boards framed in gilt and in blind with leaf-and-flower rolls, rebacked with part of original spine and red morocco lettering piece laid down, marbled end papers. A Very Good or better copy, generally clean and bright with first and final leaves (including title page) foxed, usual offsetting from plates, very occasional finger-soiling. Abbey, Life, 268. Tooley 413. Grolier Rowlandson 48. Martin Hardie, 174-75. & "The last of the genuine or 'authorized' Syntax books" (Abbey), first issued in eight monthly parts. As early as 1809, the publisher Ackermann had hired Combe to write the letterpress to accompany many of Rowlandson's most successful illustrations, including those for the final volume of the "Microcosm of London" and perhaps especially for the illustrations that resulted in the series of comic poetry for which Combe is still most famous, and which earned him his best-known nickname, Doctor Syntax: The Tour of Doctor Syntax, in Search of the Picturesque and its two sequels (1812, 1820, 1821), The English Dance of Death (1815, 1816), The Dance of Life (1817), and finally The History of Johnny Quae Genus, the Little Foundling of the Late Doctor Syntax (1822). "Combining light-hearted satire of William Gilpin's theory of the picturesque in art with a central character modelled on Cervantes' Don Quixote and Henry Fielding's Parson Adams, Combe created a lovable eccentric whose misadventures on the road structure the Tour. For over a century the many editions and numerous imitations of the Tour attested to the popularity of Combe's humorous hero."

        [Original Manuscript] List of Death Among the Late African Company Officers in the Settlements on the Gold Coast from the 1st of January 1812, to 1st of January 1822 Being a Period of Ten Years

      Gold Coast, 1822 Handwritten. Very Good. Cloth custom made portfolio. Folio - over 12 - 15" tall. Gold Coast, 1822. 4 pp. Manuscript ca. 34x21 cm (13x8 in). Manuscript with tears but no loss of text housed in a blue cloth custom made portfolio with a red gilt morocco label on front cover. In very good condition. This report by the Assistant Surgeon in the African Company of Merchants concerns the mortality rate among the Company's officers during a period of ten years (1812-1822) and includes a list of fifty people (indicating their names). The "Remarks" section explains the statistics: "The African Company Establishment when fully appointed consisted of forty-five commissioned and non commissioned European officers but during the period of time stated above, there was not more than thirty-five residing in the Settlements on a yearly average & the deaths among them being five annually on an average." Arthy also counts the number of the native workers of the Company: "170 non commissioned officers and private soldiers, and 334 artificers, labourers and labouresses", and states that the mortality amongst them "except on occasional visitations of the Small Pox, was generally at the rate of one percent per annum, and very rarely exceeded two percent". Arthy concludes that "there is much reason to believe that the Climate of the Gold Coast would be found considerably less destructive of the health and lives of Europeans than that of any other intertropical country round the world. In reality to decide this question, it does not seem necessary to enquire further that Sierra Leone, Charlestown, the Havannah, Surinam and Batavia, wherein the mortality among Europeans annually so excessive and lamentable and so generally known as might serve to remove all Doubts of the superior salubrity of the Climate of the Gold Coast to that of all other tropical countries". "The African Company of Merchants was a Chartered Company in the Gold Coast area of modern Ghana, in the coastal area where the Fante people lived. It was founded in 1752 and replaced the Royal African Company which was dissolved in that year. In 1817 the Company had signed a treaty of friendship that recognized Asante claims to sovereignty over large areas of the coast, including areas claimed by the Fante. The Company was abolished in 1821, as the slave trade had not been suppressed in these privately held areas. Authority over the area was given to Governor Charles MacCarthy, the governor of Sierra Leone, who was subsequently killed in the First Anglo-Asante War" (Wikipedia)..

        CODIFICATION PROPOSAL, ADDRESS ... TO ALL NATIONS PROFESSING LIBERAL OPINIONS; OR IDEA OF A PROPOSED ALL-COMPREHENSIVE BODY OF LAW, WITH AN ACCOMPANIMENT OF REASONS, APPLYING ALL ALONG TO THE SEVERAL PROPOSED ARRANGEMENTS

      London: Printed by J. M'Creery, 1822.. 106,[2],[107] -118pp. Octavo. Contemporary (original?) polished green muslin over boards, edges rough- trimmed. Cloth lightly rubbed, otherwise a very good, crisp copy. An interesting copy, representing an intermediate issue of the first edition, with the title-leaf and list of Bentham's publications characteristic of the first issue of the first edition, but also containing the two supplements that usually appear in the later issue, conjoined with the first edition sheets with a new 1830 title- leaf bearing the imprint of Reynell as printer and Robert Howard as publisher. Bentham here optimistically proposes a simplified system of easily understood and administered laws in order to get rid of the legal profession and what he describes as the "demon of chicane." The supplements consist largely of responses in the form of correspondence from abroad to Bentham's proposal. Not in Goldsmiths or Kress. OCLC/Worldcat locates four copies of this configuration, nine with the 1830 second issue title leaf and supplements; and eight of the 1822 first issue without the supplements. NCBEL II:1883.

Although it is a book composed in stages, the third edition of Y ffydd ddi-ffuant has the unity of the scripture's historical imagination. It is Edwards's definition of this as it pertains to Wales and the individual Welshman, expressed in vivid, spectacular style, that makes the book a classic -DNB. Condition: In a full calf binding.

        Description of the Abbeys of Melrose, and Old Melrose, with Their Traditions [Fantastic Sir Walter Scott and Thomas Moore Association Copy]

      Edinburgh: Printed for the Author by J. Orphoot 1822, 2nd Improved Edition. () [i-iii],iv,[5],6-125pp. Very good. Octavo. Finely bound in polished green calf. Heavily gilt and blind panel design stamped to front and rear boards with gilt fleurons. Spine in 5 compartments, one compartment with title and remaining 4 stamped in gilt. Raised bands. Gilt dentelles to edges and insides of front and back boards. Some rubbing to spine and shelf wear to board edges. Corners slightly bumped. A.e.g. Internally clean with only occasional age toning . Folding frontis of Melrose Abbey. With the engraved bookplate of Sir Thomas Moore and the red morocco variant bookplate of Harold Murdock. **A fantastic association copy.** This copy not only belonged to the book's dedicatee, Sir Walter Scott, but it was presented by Scott in his hand to his contemporary and public "rival" Thomas Moore: "Thomas Moore from his affectionate friend, Walter Scott, Melrose Abbey, 31 October 1825" with Moore's signature. At the time of this inscription, Moore and Scott were both working on books, Scott his monumental 9 volume work on Napoleon and Moore his thin volume, Epicurean. By chance, both books were scheduled to be released on the same day in 1827. Worried that Epicurean would be lost in the publicity of Scott's Napoleon (which Moore had criticized), Moore published his book one day before Scott's (British Museum Satires 15440). This public "feud" was immortalized in an engraved cartoon, offered with this book, presenting both Moore and Scott, with their respective works, balanced on the scale of public opinion. Moore triumphantly displays the thin Epicurean to Scott, who although weighed down by his 9 volumes of Napoleon, has been bested by Moore in the "Balance of Public Favor". The book offered here was signed and presented to Moore by Scott at an important time in the relationship between the two authors, interestingly, at Melrose Abbey, the subject of this book and subject of Scott's poem, "The Lay of the Last Minstrel, Canto Second.". Signed by Sir Walter Scott and Thomas Moore. Fantastic Association Between Thomas Moore and Sir Walter Scott.

        Notice sur le voyage de M. Lelorrain, en Égypte; et Observations sur le zodiac circulaire de Denderah

      chez l'auteur Paris: chez l'auteur, 1822. Soft cover. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. . ,, . Tall 8vo. [21 x 13.5 cm], (3) ff., including half title, title and avis, [5]-92. Bound in original printed wrappers with engraved Egyptian-style vignette. Spine split. Some minor foxing, otherwise very good.First edition of an historically important volume describing the Dendera Affair, the Egyptian archaeological expedition of 1820 led by Saulnier, an antiquarian and treasure-hunter, and J.-B. Lelorrain, the master mason he hired to remove the bas-relief zodiac from Egypt's Temple of Dendera and smuggle it to Paris. Until it was overshadowed by Heinrich Schliemann's excavation and ransacking of ancient Troy in the 1870s, the Dendera Affair was Europe's most glamorous and notorious archaeological event.Since the Notice is an attempt to persuade the government of Louis XVIII to buy the zodiac, Saulnier concerned himself primarily with geopolitical intrigue: Lelorrain's voyage to Egypt, the numerous obstacles he had to overcome in order to return to France with his quarry, etc. The Notice also contains a detailed description of the zodiac itself, which was laid out in an unusual circular form: Saulnier identifies its figures and attempts an explanation of their history, mythological significance and complex symbolism. The zodiac was bought by Louis XVIII, and is today on display in the Louvre.* Buchwald, Engineering and Science, v. LXVI no. 4, pp. 21-31.

        Vue d'Agrigente, prise des Hauteurs

      Paris: [peint par Coignet d'après Michalon; Gravé par S.Himely; Imprimé par Sauniée], 1822. Aquatint engraving, coloured by hand. India paper mounted. 11 3/4 x 17 inches (approximately). 18 3/8 x 24 1/4 inches (approximately). From `Voyage pittoresque en Sicile': a very rare series of sublime views of some of the best preserved Greek temples in the world, beautifully hand-coloured and here in the rarest state with the plate on india paper mounted. Published in Paris between 1822 and 1826, Achille- Etienne Gigault de la Salle's `Voyage pittoresque en Sicile', was published in three forms: coloured, coloured before letters or, as here, on india paper, coloured and mounted. The work can now be seen as a showcase for the talents of the best landscape artists and aquatint engravers of the period. Agrigento is the capital of Agrigento provincia, near the southern coast of Sicily. The plateau site of the ancient city is extraordinarily rich in Greek remains. A wall, with remnants of eight gates, can be traced from the two northern peaks (the Rock of Athena and the hill of Girgenti) to the ridge that carried the south line of the city's defenses. An almost continuous sacred area along this ridge has been excavated to reveal Agrigento's most famous remains, its seven Doric temples. Cf. Abbey Travel I, 262, pl. 30; cf. Brunet V, 1379.

        PÈtition au Parlement Britannique

      Londres,: J. Barfield, Printer, 91, Wardour-Street, Soho, March, 1822.. Tall octavo, half-title, title with Wronski's printed Egyptian device, 59 pp., bookplate of First Earl Eldon, endpapers with printed notes on red paper including additional errata; a handsome copy in contemporary straight grain red morocco, gilt, fragment of early paper label to spine, chipped at base. First edition: an exquisite copy of this rare petition, a late but significant attempt to win the longitude prize.Wronski came from a Czech family settled in western Poland. In 1794 he served in Poland with Kosciuszko where he was taken prisoner by the Russian forces. He resigned his commission in 1798, studied in Germany for a few years, and then enlisted in the Polish Legion at Marseilles. Wronski was a prolific writer on all manner of subjects, but it was evidently scientific work to which he was drawn. He joined the Marseilles Observatory in 1803 and published widely on mathematics before moving to London in 1819.His great ambition while in London was to revolutionise the study of longitude and win for himself the famous Longitude Prize of £20,000, still unclaimed after more than a century. On arrival his instruments were detained by Customs, but he did eventually address the Board of Longitude but without any success. This work details his travails, and a significant part of this book is effectively a resumÈ of Wronski's qualifications, taking the form of a series of letters of support from his friends. Easily the most interesting part, however, is the second half of the book, a detailed assessment of the machinations of the Board of Longitude, making this book an interesting comparison with the more famous stoushes between the Board and earlier figures such as John Harrison and Thomas Mudge. Wronski ultimately failed in his attempt, at least in part because his skills were more theoretical than practical: he returned to the continent in 1823.With the bookplate of John Scott, first Earl of Eldon, and Lord Chancellor of Great Britain between 1801 and 1827.

        Twenty Four Subjects Exhibiting the Costume of Paris

      1822. first edition. A Tall Copy and RareWith the Lithographic Title-Page[CHALON, John James, illustrator]. Twenty Four Subjects Exhibiting the Costume of Paris, The Incidents taken from Nature, Designed and Drawn on Stone by J.J. Chalon. London: Published by Rodwell and Martin, 1822.First edition. Large folio (17 5/16 x 12 inches; 440 x 305 mm.). Lithographed title and twenty-four hand-colored lithographed plates. Plates printed by C. Hullmandel. The text is watermarked 1821 and the plates are watermarked J. Whatman 1817-1822.Contemporary black pebble-grain cloth expertly re-backed, re-cornered, and re-labled in black straight grain morocco to early nineteenth century style. With the contemporary bookplate of Laurence Currie. The twelfth plate “La Loueuse de Chaises” has a very small marginal paper flaw which is outside of the plate mark. Otherwise a most attractive, remarkably clean and vivid copy.The plates are captioned: “La Marchande de Tisanne;” “Les Bonnes;” “La Petite Fruitiere;” “La Dame du Café;” “Le Café;” “Les Tondeuses de Chiens;” “Les Brodeuses;” “L’Escamoteur;” “La Porte Cochère;” “Le Journal des Débats;” “Le Restaurant;” “La Loueuse de Chaises;” “Une Matinée aux Thuilleries;” “Le Marchand de Brioches;” “Le Porteur d’Eau;” “Le Petit Décrotteur;” “Le Marche aux Fleurs;” “La Prise de Tabac;” “Les Adieux;” “Les Dames de la Halle;” “Le Cimetiere du Pere la Chaise;” “Les Dames Artistes;” “La Charette du Blanchisseur;” and “La Marchande de Modes.”“According to Beraldi (XII, 232) this ‘very curious and rare album’ appeared as a small quarto in London. These plates, which are large folio in size, may represent a French issue of the work, though the English edition had captions in French. Jean-Jacques Chalon was a French artist born in Switzerland who eventually settled in England. His designs are by no means mere costume plates. Instead they are animated and faithful studies of Parisian manners and costumes in the years 1820 to 1822. There is hardly a touch of caricature, though the profiles of his personages have a family likeness which suggests a domesticated Girodet” (Ray)."Published in four parts. The plates show people of various occupations, shoeblacks, venders, politicians, and general scenes, etc" (Hiler).This copy is unusually tall: Abbey's copy measured 15 x 11 1/4 inches uncut, and lacked the lithographed title-page, as did Sadleir's (though Sadleir's copy was slightly larger than the copy under notice).Only three copies with the lithographed title-page have come to auction within last 31 years. Five copies only located in KVK/OCLC but the presence of the title page is not noted. Quite rare.Abbey, Travel, 108. Colas 588. Hiler, p. 156. Lipperheide 1185.

        TRAVELS IN NORTH AMERICA

      Dublin: Christopher Bentham, 1822.. [2],9-184pp. plus five woodcut plates (including frontispiece). Titlepage vignette of a turtle. 16mo. Contemporary plain paper boards, printed paper spine label. Boards detached. Contemporary ink inscription on titlepage. Scattered light staining and foxing. In a half morocco box, good. This apocryphal voyage describes the adventures of George Philips, an imaginary Irishman who was supposed to have accompanied Lewis and Clark from St. Louis to the Pacific. "Imaginary experiences of an imaginary Irishman with the Lewis and Clark expedition, etc." - Howes. "As the expedition which Philips had now joined, was one from which much interesting information was expected concerning the interior of the American Continent, as well as much future advantage to the inhabitants of the United States, by establishing a commerce with the native Indians for their furs...Philips on his arrival at St. Louis, found Captains Lewis and Clarke the other commander and twenty-three robust active young men, who had volunteered to accompany them, two French watermen, an Interpreter and his wife, a hunter and a black servant, belonging to Captain Clarke." George Philips also had adventures in the West Indies, South America, Mexico, the Great Lakes, among the Esquimaux, and in Canada. He returned home to Ireland via Florida and the West Indies. The plates show the inside of an Indian hut, the falls of Niagara, a meeting with Esquimaux, a view of icebergs, and others. The latter part of the narrative seems to lean on Sir John Franklin's first voyage, which had been published in 1819. The editors of the LITERATURE OF THE LEWIS AND CLARK EXPEDITION call the Philips narrative "an entirely new and quite wonderful fabricated account," discussing it at length. A fascinating and little-known work, evidently quite rare. HOWES P305, "aa." WAGNER-CAMP 21c:1. SABIN 62456. LITERATURE OF THE LEWIS AND CLARK EXPEDITION 4d.1. SERVIES 1129. CLARK II:174.

        [CUBAN SUGAR PLANTATION]

      [Cuba. ca. 1850s].. Oil on canvas, 13 1/2 x 23 1/2 inches. Excellent displayable condition. Framed. This attractive landscape painting depicting a Cuban sugar plantation was almost certainly executed by artist Charles DeWolf Brownell, in the mid to late 1850s. As would be customary with Brownell, who was greatly influenced by the artists of the Hudson River School, the image is dominated by the Cuban landscape of lush greenery, rolling hills, and blue sky, with the main buildings on the edges of the work. There are various types of trees dotting the landscape, as well as shrubs, a stone fence, and livestock. At the bottom of the painting a horse ridden by a black servant pulls a barranca-style carriage occupied by a woman in a pink dress. In the center a man in a white suit and hat walks up a hill toward the plantation house beside a horse carrying a similarly dressed man. Five of the plantation structures are depicted. The main house, a white two-story gabled building with a balcony, is on the far left. A woman stands in the doorway. On the far right of the painting is a slat- roofed building with a large billowing chimney and slaves at work. In the center of the image are three more buildings: a thatch-roofed hut filled with sugarcane, and two storage buildings. The sky is bright blue, with pillowy white clouds rolling by. Charles DeWolf Brownell (1822-1909) was born in Rhode Island and spent most of his adult life in Hartford and New York City. Trained as a lawyer, he abandoned the law out of conscience and turned to painting. He was greatly influenced by the Hudson River School, and his most notable works are landscape paintings. His maternal relatives, the DeWolfs, owned several sugar plantations in Cuba, and beginning in 1854, Charles Brownell spent seven consecutive winters on the island. He returned to Cuba several times over the ensuing decades. He traveled throughout the island, boarding in several plantations. Inspired by the Cuban landscape, he created a number of paintings of the island, including portraits of plantations done as commissions to help pay his expenses. In his diary Brownell notes that these commissioned paintings usually brought between forty and sixty dollars. The present work, painted in oil on a relatively modest size canvas, is in keeping with the style and form of these other works. A 1991 Kennedy Gallery exhibition catalogue of Brownell's work notes that these paintings of Cuban plantations survive in only a small number. A fine representation of mid-19th- century Cuban plantation life. Early paintings of Cuba are rare. Kennedy Galleries, CHARLES DeWOLF BROWNELL (1822-1909), EXPLORER OF THE AMERICAN LANDSCAPE, March 1991.

        Veduta del Ponte Molle sul Tevere due miglia lontano da Roma. Questo Ponte e stato ristaurato, e costruito l'Arco Trionfale A..dal Sommo Pontefice PIO VII. Regnante

      Rome.. 1822.. Copperplate engraving, 18 x 24 1/2 inches on sheet size 19 x 25 1/4. A couple of soft creases to the paper, short edge tears, pinhole in upper left and right corners and lower left corner. Narrow margins. Image in very good condition; a rich impression. View of Ponte Molle over the Tevere (Tiber), two miles from Rome. This impressive engraving by Luigi Rossini (1790-1857) is from the Le Antichita Romane series, depicting the antiquities of Rome and environs. Carrying on the tradition of Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778) and himself an architect, Rossini's prints celebrated the Classical Tradition and appealed to the well-to-do tourists on the Grand Tour and to architects and designers. The engravings powerfully evoke the glories of Ancient Rome, while also providing the modern viewer with glimpses of this magnificent city in the early 19th century. .

        D.D. Fauna Novae Hollandiae

      Uppsala,: Royal Academy Press,, 1822.. Small quarto, [ii], 8 pp.; a very fine copy, uncut and unbound, as issued. A scarce and significant academic paper, this was the first serious attempt at compiling a formal fauna of Australia, in the form of a dissertation presented by Huss before Carl Thunberg, Linnaeus's great disciple and successor. Thunberg, using the traditional method of publishing his own work through the medium of his students' dissertations, "mapped" much of the flora and fauna of South Africa, China, Japan, and, in this instance, Australia. His prolific output included especially important work on both the botany and zoology of South Africa and the far east, but this is his only work that deals specifically with Australia. This is an especially fine copy of this rare and important piece.

        Account of an Expedition from Pittsburgh to the Rocky Mountains, performed in the Years 1819, and '20 &under the Command of Major Stephen H. Long

      - Philadelphia: H.C. Carey & Lea, 1822-1823. 3 volumes (text: 2 vols., octavo [9 1/2 x 6 inches]; atlas: 1 vol., quarto [11 1/2 x 9 inches]). Atlas: 11 engraved plates and maps (2 double-page maps after S.H. Long by Young & Delleker; 1 double-page plate of geological cross-sections; 8 plates [1 hand-coloured] after S. Seymour [6], T.R. Peale [1] and one unassigned, engraved by C.G. Childs [2], Lawson [1], F. Kearney [2], W. Hay [1], Young & Delleker [1]). Text uncut and largely unopened. (Llight foxing to text and atlas). Text: publisher's paper-backed grey boards, original paper labels on the spines. Atlas: contemporary tree calf over blue paper covered boards, original paper label on the upper cover. (Some wear). Housed in blue morocco backed boxes. Streeter's copy of the first edition of one of the most important early western expeditions, here in original boards. Edwin James was the botanist, geologist, and surgeon for this important government expedition, initially named the Yellowstone Expedition. Led by Major Stephen Long, the expedition added significantly to the earlier discoveries of Lewis and Clark and Zebulon Pike. In addition to his duties on the expedition, James subsequently served as the editor and compiler of this text, relying "upon his own records, the brief geological notes of Major Long, and the early journals of Thomas Say [who served as the expedition's naturalist]" (Wagner-Camp). Appendices to the text comprise astronomical and meteorological tables and Indian vocabularies. In addition to Long, James and Say, the expedition included Titian Peale as draughtsman and assistant naturalist; and Samuel Seymour as landscape artist. The published plates depict Oto Indians, views of the Plains, and buffalo. Major Long was the principal proponent of government-sponsored exploration of the West following the War of 1812. He travelled farther than Pike or Lewis and Clark, and blazed trails that were susequently followed by Fremont, Powell, and others. The expedition travelled up the Missouri and then followed the River Platte to its source in the Rocky Mountains before moving south to Upper Arkansas. From there the plan was to find the source of the Red River, but when this was missed the Canadian River was explored instead. Cartographically, the atlas contains the first maps to provide detail of the Central Plains. Upon returning to Washington from the expedition, Long drafted a large manuscript map of the West (now in the National Archives) and the printed maps in James's Account closely follows. The "Western Section" map is particularly interesting as it here that the myth of the Great American Desert was founded by Long: a myth which endured for decades. The designation Great American Desert appears east of the single range of the Rocky Mountains, together with a two-line note: "The Great American Desert is frequented by roving bands of Indians who have no fixed places of residence but roam from place to place in quest of game." Long's map, along with that of Lewis and Clark, "were the progenitors of an entire class of maps of the American Transmississippi West" (Wheat). This set with the atlas from the famed Western Americana collection of Thomas W. Streeter, with his booklabel and pencil note on the front pastedown indicating the atlas was purchased from Edward Eberstadt in February 1944, and noting "This about the best copy of the atlas I have ever seen."

In 1820 he went in the same capacity in the female convict ship Morley" (ODNB). The present work - "a valuable account" (Ferguson) - being published on his return "to draw attention to the miserable circumstances of transporting convicts … he depicted the deplorable discipline to which convicts were subjected on board ship, and the atrocious condition and treatment once they arrived in New South Wales and Tasmania" (Hill). The "Reflections of Seduction" relates to 1798 mutiny on board the Lady Shore which had resulted from carrying convicts of both sexes, the women having "induced the men to take over the ship".

      Paris: chez l'auteur, 1822. Soft cover. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. . ,, . Tall 8vo. [21 x 13.5 cm], (3) ff., including half title, title and avis, [5]-92. Bound in original printed wrappers with engraved Egyptian-style vignette. Spine split. Some minor foxing, otherwise very good.First edition of an historically important volume describing the Dendera Affair, the Egyptian archaeological expedition of 1820 led by Saulnier, an antiquarian and treasure-hunter, and J.-B. Lelorrain, the master mason he hired to remove the bas-relief zodiac from Egypt's Temple of Dendera and smuggle it to Paris. Until it was overshadowed by Heinrich Schliemann's excavation and ransacking of ancient Troy in the 1870s, the Dendera Affair was Europe's most glamorous and notorious archaeological event.Since the Notice is an attempt to persuade the government of Louis XVIII to buy the zodiac, Saulnier concerned himself primarily with geopolitical intrigue: Lelorrain's voyage to Egypt, the numerous obstacles he had to overcome in order to return to France with his quarry, etc. The Notice also contains a detailed description of the zodiac itself, which was laid out in an unusual circular form: Saulnier identifies its figures and attempts an explanation of their history, mythological significance and complex symbolism. The zodiac was bought by Louis XVIII, and is today on display in the Louvre.* Buchwald, Engineering and Science, v. LXVI no. 4, pp. 21-31.

The introductions gives the best clue to the nature of the contents: 'The Favor which has been bestowed on the different tours of Dr. Syntax has encouraged the writer of them to give a 'History of the Foundling,' who has been thought an interesting object in the latter of these volumes, and it is written in the same style and manner with a view to connect it with them. This child of chance, it is presumed, is led througha track of life not unsuited to the peculiarity of his conditoin and character, while its varieties, as in the former works, are represented by the pencil of Mr. Rowlandson with its characteristic felicity.

Toning, light soiling to title page, creases to corners of a few leaves. An appealing copy. * Only edition. Carlile was one of the most prolific freethinking journalist-publisher-political activists of his day. As one would suspect, he was often at odds with the government. In 1819 he was fined 1,500 pounds and imprisoned for three years for six counts of "blasphemous libel." He published this account of the first day of his 1819 trial after his release. It deals with the information against him for publishing Thomas Paine's Age of Reason and Examination of the Passages in the New Testament Quoted from the Old and Called prophecies concerning Jesus Christ, which Carlile issued as The Age of Reason, Part the Third. Portions of these were read in court by Carlile with commentary. Catalogue of the Library of the Harvard Law School II:1035.

      London: Edward Orme, 1822. Pair of hand-coloured aquatints. Titled and captioned in lower margin. 18 x 26 3/8 inches, each. Rare pair of coloured aquatints depicting the turning point of the Third Anglo-Maratha War The title continues: "The Troops of the Rajah (Appa Sahib) were 25,000 Horse and Foot and 36 Guns. Those of the British, including 3 Troops of Cavalry, were about 1100 Bayonets and 4 Guns. Inscribed to Rich.d Jenkins Esqr. British Resident at Nagpore, Col. Hopetown Scott, C.B. and the Officers who fought under his Orders at the memorable Batle of Seetabuldee, Nagpore, on the 26th and 27th of November 1817 by J. Bayley, Captn. & Asst. Military Dept. Nagpore." The first image depicts the Bengal Cavalry charging the Maharatta forces on the plain, with the British forces and the families of the troops on a hillside in the right side fore-ground. The second image shows Jenkins "haranguing his Escort while preparing to charge with the 1st Battn. 24th Regt. Madras N.I..." This battle, in which the vastly outnumbered British army defeated Appa Sahib's forces, was a turning point in the war, which ultimately led to the end of the conflict between the British East India Company and the Maratha Empire, and British control of much of southern India.

        Ockbrook, A Settlement of the United Brethren near Derby

      c. 1822. Hand-coloured aquatint. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition. Trimmed to plate mark on sides and bottom margin. Image size: 11 15/16 x 17 5/8 inches. 14 x 19 inches. A handsome view of the United Brethren settlement of Ockbrook outside Derby, by the celebrated topographical engraver R. G. Reeve. The Moravians were a Protestant sect from Moravia who came to be known as the "Church of the Brotherhood" or "The United Brethren." The movement began with the martyr Jan Hus in the 15th century. Followers took an active part in the evangelical revival in England during the 18th century, and were closely associated for a time with John Wesley. In the 18th century, some congregations were established as Settlements, where Moravians might live and follow their spiritual vocation as members of a disciplined Christian Brotherhood. Ockbrook was one of these Settlements. A society was formed around 1750 near Derby by Ock Brook, and it grew from that. The settlement was self-contained and self-governed, with its own cottage industries: shoemaking and glovemaking among others. There were community houses for sisters and brethren, who applied themselves to the varied work of the settlement. Very soon there were schools, and the girls' school is still in existence. The image itself is a wonderful 19th century pastoral view of the red brick Georgian buildings that constituted the settlement. The late afternoon sunlight and the peaceful cows in the foreground establish an air of serenity and imply harmonious relations between brethren, nature and God.
