        Manuscript] Specimens of Miscellaneous Poetry with several Original Pieces.

      London: 1822 - Octavo (175 x 105 mm). Contemporary calf, spine gilt- and blind-tooled in compartments with black title label, boards richly panelled in gilt and blind, endpapers coated green, all edges gilt. Very slight rubbing, a few trivial spots without, but a beautiful book in excellent contemporary condition. A lovely manuscript anthology of Romantic poetry, executed in 1822 and giving a valuable record of contemporary taste, with numerous poems by Lord Byron ("To Thirza", "The Destruction of Sennacherib", "Fare thee Well!", and "She walk in beauty.", to name but few), as well as others by Walter Scott, Robert Southey, Erasmus Darwin, Samuel Rogers, etc. These appear alongside many "Anonymous" poems, the vast majority of which appear to have been drawn from contemporary editions of Blackwoods Edinburgh Magazine - so many so that we must surmise the selection was made by an avid subscriber.

        [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."

A Fine DeLuxe Imperial Copy on India Paper with Proof Impressions of the Plates, bound from the original parts, with all of the plates colored by hand in the early twentieth century with the original lithographed wrapper from Part One. Imperial quarto (14 3/4 x 10 5/8 inches; 376 x 270 mm.). Seventy-five finely and later (but not recent) hand-colored and heightened with gum arabic steel engravings on India paper proofs. Printed wrapper of the first installment bound in the rear. A wonderful clean and fresh copy with huge, wide margins. The hand-coloring, which is heightened with gum arabic, is of excellent quality was most likely done at time the book was bound by Wood of London, ca. 1910. Bound ca. 1910 by Wood of London (stamp-signed on verso of front free end-paper). Three quarter green morocco over blue cloth boards ruled in gilt. Spine with five raised bands decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments,marbled end-papers, top edge gilt. With the woodcut bookplate of Eleanor Castle Stewart on recto of front blank. Printed in various sizes, and not uncommon in a regular edition, this is the extremely rare imperial quarto edition with proofs on India paper, the most expensive version at the time and only published in a very limited print run. The plates are engraved by W. B. Cooke and artists include Peter De Wint, Samuel Owen, John Hughes, William Havell, and many others. The plates show the early nineteenth century scenery along the River Thames, which is always in view, depicting villages, towns (including Oxford and London), bridges, estates, monuments, and several pastoral scenes including cattle, people fishing, rowing, ship-building, etc., all accurately engraved and colored by hand. Each plate has an explanatory caption, one has an additional poem, and a few depict historical events; e.g. "Opening of Waterloo Bridge on the 18th of June 1817", "Launch of the Nelson at Woolrich, July 4th 1814", and "Fair on the Thames Feb. 1814" (when the river was frozen over). "A new edition of the work is in course of publication to be completed in Six Parts, each Part containing thirteen Engravings; the letter-press description will appear at the Conclusion as an Octavo volume. It is intended to re-engrave several of the plates, to omit some altogether and to substitute new ones of a more interesting description. To be printed in Royal Quarto; also in Imperial Quarto, with Proof impressions, and a small number to be taken off on India paper, first proofs... The 'de-luxe' edition, with illustrations on India paper, was clearly intended to supplant the older standard work on Thames scenery, Boydell's History of the Thames" (No 75), whose aquatinted plates were by now very worn. As in Boydell the illustrations in the quarto edition are split up into two volumes, the first extending from Thames head to Richmond, and the second from Richmond to Southend. Also as in Boydell the text is subordinated to the engravings which are mostly the work of a single engraver." (Adams, pp. 337-340). Eleanor Castle Stewart - most likely Eleanor May Stuart (nee Guggenheim), Countess Castle Stewart (1896-1992), wife of 7th Earl Castle Stewart; daughter of Solomon R. Guggenheim.

Seventy-six of these fossils, new to science, were here named by him for his scientific friends... he was able to note... a number of fossil plants, shells, and fishes, together with some extremely curious vertebrae, teeth, and bones of unknown but obviously gigantic reptiles.

        Confessions of an English Opium-Eater

      London: Printed for Taylor and Hessey, 1822. "Oh! Just, Subtle, And Mighty Opium!"A Fine and Elaborate Early Twentieth Century Binding by Bayntun of Bath[DE QUINCEY, Thomas]. BAYNTUN, binder. Confessions of an English Opium Eater. London: Printed for Taylor and Hessey, 1822. First edition in book form. Large twelvemo (6 7/8 x 4 inches; 176 x 101 mm). vi, 206 pp. including half-title. Leaf E 12 (pp. 95/96) expertly and almost invisibly extended at fore-margin, not affecting text.Bound c. 1920 by "Bayntun. Binder. Bath. Eng." (stamp-signed in gilt on front turn-in). Full crimson crushed Levant morocco, covers with double gilt ruled borders enclosing an elaborate floral design in gilt and also lettered in gilt. Spine with five raised bands decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, decorative gilt board-edges and wide turn-ins, red watered silk liners and end-leaves, top edge gilt, others uncut. A fine and attractive example.Confessions of an English Opium-Eater (1821) is the classic autobiographical narrative written by Thomas De Quincey (1785-1859) concerning his laudanum (tincture of opium) addiction and its effect on his life. The Confessions was "the first major work De Quincey published and the one which won him fame almost overnight..."First published anonymously in September and October 1821 in the London Magazine, the Confessions was released in book form in 1822, and again in 1856, in an edition revised by De Quincey."De Quincey's study of his own opium addiction and its psychological effects traces how childhood and youthful experiences are transformed, under the influence of opium, into symbolical and revealing dreams. The central experience for subsequent dream-formations was his childhood loss of his sister, duplicated by the disappearance of the 15-year-old prostitute Ann, who befriended him during his months of homeless near-starvation in London. The euphoric reveries of the early stages of his addiction and the appalling nightmares of the later stages are described in sonorous and haunting prose, and the work, first appearing in the London Magazine in 1821, conferred instant literary fame on De Quincey, whose first book it was. In 1856 he greatly extended the Confessions for a collected edition of his works, but thereby blunted its effect" (The Oxford Companion to English Literature)."This is the first edition of the first part of the book; the complete text first appeared in Boston in 1850 and in London in 1856" (Tinker).Ashley Library II, p. 37.

        A geographical panorama : exhibiting characteristic representations of the scenery and inhabitants of various regions.

      A very rare toy for children with exquisite aquatint renderings of scenes from around the globe, including views of Oonalaska (after Webber) and the Society Islands (after Parkinson) from Cook's voyages.  London : Harvey and Darton, 1822. Mahogany box, 300 x 260 x 90 mm, sliding lid with engraved title sheet (worn), the underside of which is engraved with 8 grooves for inserting the pieces of the diorama, the box containing two mahogany support struts with brass fittings that insert into the brass clips on the body of the box, three sheets of card (one folding) which are placed into the mahogany struts to form a proscenium arch through which one can view the diorama. There are nine background scenes printed in colour aquatint, and 18 (of 21) diecut images, all of which are inserted into the grooves of the wooden base to form a diorama of a scene from a particular part of the world. The printed instructions are provided in facsimile. The backdrops are somewhat generic, allowing them to be used in a number of different compositions. In the explanatory leaflet, the scenes and figures are described as follows: I. the Desert of Arabia; II. Hindostan; III. A stormy sky (with detail of Captain William Parry's ship in Baffin Bay; alternatively M. de Saussure ascending Mont Blanc); IV. China; V. A calm sea (with detail of a canoe in Oonalaska; the shooting of walruses and a polar bear, all after Webber's illustrations for Cook's third voyage); VI. the Society Islands (with detail after Parkinson's illustrations for Cook's first voyage); VII. the mountains of Dofrafeld (Scandinavia); VIII. the Acropolis of Athens; IX. Lapland (with detail of figures from Kamchatka). Originally sold at the advertised price of £3 3s, this elaborate and very expensive toy theatre would have been the preserve of only the wealthiest families in Georgian England. The instructions explain that the theatre is shown to best effect by candlelight; the candles were to be placed behind the cardboard wings at the sides, with the flickering ambient light creating a quasi-cinematic effect. A scorch mark to one of the struts is a tell-tale sign that the original owners of the theatre did indeed deploy lit candles to enhance the effect of the display. Authorship has been attributed to Maria Hack, recognised as a frequent collaborator of Darton, and the artwork for the aquatints to her daughter, Elizabeth Barton Hack. The imagery draws heavily from other printed sources, including engravings illustrating the voyages of Captain James Cook. One of the die-cuts in the first scene is replicated as the frontispiece to volume one of Maria Hack's Winter Evenings, or Tales of Travellers (London : Darton & Harvey, 1818), which does strongly suggest that the Hacks were the creators of A geographical panorama. As with most children's games from the Georgian period, few examples have survived; those that have tend to be incomplete. The present example is substantially complete, lacking only a few of the die-cut components, while the instructions are provided in facsimile. This toy theatre was unknown to Beddie, and is not noted in any other Pacific voyages bibliography; no example is held in any Australian collection. References : Shefrin, Jill.
