        Napoleon in Exile; or A Voice from St. Helena

      London: W. Simpkin and R. Marshall, , 1822. Being the Opinions and Reflections of Napoleon on the Most Important Events of his Life and Government, in his Own Words. 2 volumes octavo (213 × 131 mm) Contemporary streaked calf, six compartments formed by a gilt band-roll, red morocco labels to the second compartment, volume numbers gilt within a small wreath tool to the fourth, rectangular gilt device centred on an octafoil in roundel to the others, single undulate rolled panel to the boards, edges reeded in blind, edges marbled, eau de nil endpapers. Stipple-engraved portrait frontispiece and one other plate to to each. Just a little rubbed at the extremities, some light foxing, and a touch of off-setting from the plates, but overall a very clean, and pretty, copy. Fifth edition. "Tulard account[s] for O'Meara's partiality to Napoleon on account of his Irishness. This view is supported by O'Meara's deportment at the end of his life when he became an active member of O'Connell's Reform Club. But that was after he had been lionised by Byron and other admirers. At this stage of his life O'Meara displayed a different sort of Irishness: already drummed out of the army in 1807 for duelling, he was drummed out of St. Helena in 1818 for openly and repeatedly slandering Sir Hudson Lowe" (Sandler). On publication in 1822 the book was savagely attacked by the critics, and Sir Hudson Lowe considered legal action, but inevitably this did nothing to damage its popularity, it was a sensation and went through five editions in one year. This copy with the pencilled binding instructions - "calf, Mr. Gibbons, Finchingfield" - to the first leaf of the text in volume I, and a few contemporary pencilled notes in the tail margins. Tipped-in notes record the purchase of the set in Charing Cross Road in 1949.

As Abbey explains "copies have been seen with paper marked as late as 1835" but in such cases the colour is usually blatantly crude, the colour in the present copy remains of a very high standard. The most famous English colour plate book recording the military endeavours of the Napoleonic wars, considered by Hardie to be "a brilliant and worthy record of a brilliant period in our country's history." A superbly presented copy.

        Autograph letter signed ("Mérimée").

      Paris, 9. II. 1822. - 4to. 1¾ pp. Bifolium with integral address panel. To M. de Varennes, on behalf of an inquiery he had promised to do: "J'ai bien des excuses à vous faire d'avoir été si longtems à répondre à la lettre que vous m'avés fait l'honneur de m'écrire. J'avais fait de suite la moitié de votre commission: j'étais allé demander à M. Chénard quelle devrait être la force d'un appareil propre à l'usage auquel vous le destinés et il m'avait dit que pour produire un grand effet il fallait 150 à 160 couples de plaques de 3 ponces de diamètre sur deux. Cette instruction acquise, restait à m'enquérir des prix. J'étais alors occupé d'une distribution prochaine qui eut lieu à notre Ecole le dimanche 27 Janvier et quand j'ai eu le loisir nécessaire j'avais oublié d'achever mon entreprise : enfin, hier, Coulonuriers [?] et Ses bons habitans m'étant revenus à la mémoire, J'ai couru chez Demotiez lui demander le prix de l'appareil tel que M. Chénard me l'avait désigné. Démotiez m'a répondu que pour qu'il fut plus solidement établi il fallait le faire en quatre parties de 40 couples; qu'en donnant une plus grande longueur aux bois il pourrait arriver que le gonflement fît casser le mastic qui scelle les autres. [ ]". - Some damage to edges and browned; fol. 2 with small tear due to breaking of seal (not touching text); seal remnant.

        Travels In The Interior Of Southern Africa

      London: Printed For Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, And Brown, 1822-24. First edition. "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. Theal (ëHistory of South Africa, 1795-1834í) remarks that the author was ëa man of talent, an easy writer, and scrupulously exact in his descriptionsí, and according to Sclater he was ëa most skillful and well-trained zoologist and botanist, and his observations are all accurate and methodical.í Burchell penetrated as far as ëLattakooí (afterwards known as Kuruman), and during his explorations, which extended over a period of four years, made important collections of the fauna, flora, and curiosities of the country, together with a large number of drawings. Generally speaking, Burchell appears to have been favourably impressed by the Boers...The authorís name is perpetuated in the country by the appellation of ëBurchellís Zebraí (equus burchelli), a species of quagga discovered by him ëin the country immediately to the north of the Orange River...he was also the first to mention the existence of asbestos in this part of the country. The illustrations in the volumes are characterized by great beauty and accuracy, and it is stated in the Preface that, ëin order to ensure greater correctness in the vignettes, the author has made all these drawings upon the blocks themselvesí; the coloured plates are particularly admired, and the drawings from which they were engraved were prepared with great care by the artist, and were untouched by any other hand. The work is now extremely scarce, many copies having been broken up in the middle of the nineteenth century for the plates." (Mendelssohn) Some of the panoramic views were executed on the then practically unknown principle of scenographic projection on the surface of a revolving cylinder. The work covers Burchell's explorations in 1811 and 1812. A third volume relating his travels from 1812 to 1815 was projected but never published. In all Burchell claimed that his African collections consisted of 63,000 natural objects, 500 drawings, and a mass of astronomical, meteorological, and other observations and notes. A selection of his specimens were presented to the British museum following his return and are now in South Kensington. Abbey, Travel, 327. Mendelssohn I p. 224. Prideaux pp. 239 & 329. Tooley 116. 2 Volumes. pp. 1 p.l., [v]-viii, [8], 582; 3 p.l., 648. complete with errata slip but lacking half-titles. Hints on Emigration bound at the beginning of the first volume. large folding engraved map & 20 hand-coloured aquatint plates (5 folding). 96 wood-engravings in the text. full modern dark blue morocco (occasional minor offsetting or light foxing, short tear in map fold ñ no loss)

        The Gold Regions of South Eastern Africa

       Thomas Baines (1822 ?1875) was an English artist and explorer of British colonial southern Africa and Australia.  Today, Baines is best known for his detailed paintings and sketches which give a unique insight into colonial life in southern Africa and Australia. Many of his pictures are held by the National Library of Australia, National Archives of Zimbabwe, National Maritime Museum, Brenthurst Library and the Royal Geographical Society.  In 1870 Baines was granted a concession to explore for gold between the Gweru and Hunyani rivers by Lobengula, leader of the Matabele nation.  "Mr. Baines was one of the earliest pioneers in that part of Africa now known as Rhodesia [now Zimbabwe]. Unfortunately his backers in Europe failed to procure the necessary working capital for the exploitation of the venture, so the author missed making a large fortune.  The volume is a most important work, and contains full information of every description upon the subject of the gold discoveries in Matabeleland and Mashonaland, with much curious knowledge of the inhabitants.  The book also contains an account of the gold discoveries in the Transvaal [and] gives details of no less than nineteen routes from the various places in South Africa to the newly discovered goldfields. " (See Mendelsshon, Volume I, p.71).  This work was published posthumously.  This volume is very good in the original green pictorial cloth, featuring gilt illustrations on the spine and front cover. It contains a two-page folding facsimile letter from Livingstone to Baines, 4 mounted photographic plates, including one of the author and the balance of Baines' paintings, other wood-engraved illustrations in the text, and a folding map in the rear cover pocket.  All illustrations, the facsimile letter, and the map are intact and in excellent condition.  Also included are a biographical sketch of the author, detailed Tables of Distances and Routes, and 51 pages of advertisements bound in at the rear.  The contents are clean and bright with no spotting, as are the text block edges.  There is a split at the title page, but the binding cords are holding solidly.  There is an inked previous owner's note on the title page and the front pastedown bears a pasted image of a memorial tablet for Thomas Baines, below which is inked the words "The above Tablet was placed in the parish Church, Durham Hotel."  The green cloth covers and decorative gilt are bright and unfaded with excellent spine presentation.  There is some mottling at the front cover fore edge and light wear to the corners and spine ends.

        Italy, a Poem

      Paternoster Row, London: Longman, Rees, Orme, and Brown., 1822 Two Parts in the 1 Volume. Bound in half morocco with red marbled boards, gilt tooling, corners and edges very lightly bumped and worn. Spine, raised bands, attractive gilt tooling, titles in gilt, edges rubbed. Internally, marbled endpapers and text block edges, Part the First, lacks half title, [5], 8-164 pp, 18 poems + notes, printed by A &R Spottiswoode, New Street Square, London. Part the Second, [5], 2-188 pp, 3 small woodcuts, 24 poems + notes, printed by T Bensley Crane Court, Fleet Street, London. (Graesse 147. Allibone 1855) Very Uncommon, almost rare. The 3 cuts are the 4 Cupids with fruit, the Woman and Goat which had been previously published in Poems of 1816, and the Man and Packmule which had been first published in Poems, 1812. It had ben suggested to Rogers whilst on a visit to Italy in 1815 the idea of a poem descriptive of that country. It appeared anonymously in 1822; the secret was kept even from the publisher, and the author took care to be out of the country. No such mystery, however, attended the publication of the second part in 1828. The book was not well received. Rogers destroyed the unsold copies, revised it carefully, engaged Turner and Stothard to illustrate it, and republished it in a handsome edition in 1830. See ODNB. Still a bit of a mystery!

        BITCHU^ MEISHO KO^ 4 vols

      1822. Good. [EHON] Tsuji HOZAN, artist. BITCHU MEISHO ZUE [KO] 4 vols.. N.P. Gyokusho-en, Bunsei 5 [1822]. 26.4 x 18.5 cm. String-bound Japanese style, fukuro-toji. Though the main copy catalogued in Mitchell is in 2 vols, hand cover-titled "KO", he acknowledges 4 volume copies as wel, cover- titled "ZUE", All internal titling of this work is "KO" & "Jo-Ge", as well, leading one to infer that the original form of this work was the 2 volume binding. With blue grey plain paper covers, 18 double page illustrations, lightly colored (more lightly and more toward the blue range than the 2 volume version we have seen) In very good condition, colors and impressions. Has an advertisement for Suharaya Mohei and many other Edo, Kyoto, Owari and Osaka booksellers laid onto the inside back cover. A very interesting and lovely work, at one time attributed to Suiseki, as the images are reminiscent of his work (and hence very good indeed), It has been established that Hozan was not Suiseki, however, as his identity can be traced independently through contemporary sources. Complete, in a 20th century chitsu clasped case. Very scarce work. [SJ]

        REPORT MADE TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE STATE OF LOUISIANA, ON THE PLAN OF A PENAL CODE FOR THE SAID STATE

      New Orleans: Benjamin Levy, 1822.. 159pp., including errata note at foot of final page of text. Full calf in antique style, gilt, leather label. Text lightly tanned. Occasional pencil marginalia. Presentation from Livingston at top of title. Very good. A presentation copy, inscribed by Livingston on the titlepage to the noted publisher, Mathew Carey, "M. Carey from his Hmble Servt Edw. Living[ston]." This is the English- language edition of Livingston's proposed penal code for Louisiana, also printed in French the same year. One thousand copies were printed in each language, of which two hundred total copies were retained by Livingston for his personal use. Livingston, a former member of Congress and a staunch Jeffersonian Republican, was elected to the Louisiana legislature in 1820, and in February of the following year he was charged with developing a penal code for the state. His revolutionary plan, ultimately not adopted, was influenced by the ideas of Jeremy Bentham and favored prevention rather than excessive punitive measures. "Although none [of Livingston's plans] were enacted into law, they were, together with their introductory reports, an influential force in this country and in Europe" - Cohen. An important work of jurisprudence and a significant Louisiana legal item. Quite scarce - this is the first copy of the English-language edition that we have handled, and this is a copy with a significant association. JUMONVILLE 373. COHEN 10316. SABIN 41614.

        [Color Plate] Chrysal, or, The adventures of a guinea: wherein are exhibited views of several striking scenes : with interesting anecdotes of the most noted persons in every rank of life through whose hands it has passed, by an Adept [12 hand-colored plates]

      London: Printed for Samuel Richards and Co. 3, Grocers'-Hall Court, Poultry; and T. Mason & Sons, 2, Great Russel Street, Bloomsbury, 1822. Paper-covered Boards. Very Good +. Complete in three volumes. 12mo; viii, 319; 321; 326pp, plus 12 hand-colored plates engraved variously by Maddocks, E. F. Burney, and W. Read. Uniformly rebound to style by Fitterer, with period marbled paper-covered boards and modern paper labels; top edges gilt; end papers renewed with laid paper. Binding pristine; some gatherings foxed in volume I, otherwise a very good or better set with only sporadic foxing and offsetting from the plates, which are generally fresh and bright. Originally published pseudonymously in 1760 in 2 vols., then in an octavo color-plate edition, "To which is now prefixed a sketch of the author's life" (spelled here Johnston or Johnson; elsewhere Johnstone) in 1822, which Tooley (no. 283) calls the "best edition" of the "best scandalous chronicle of the day." OCLC Number: 187449866. This, Johnston's chief work, "appeared in four volumes between 1760 and 1765. The first and second volumes were written during a visit to the earl of Mount-Edgcumbe in Devon and had already gone through three editions before Johnstone was prevailed on to write the last two volumes, and the whole work was frequently reprinted during the eighteenth century (and translated into French). An excoriating satire that won Johnstone respect as a wit but few friends, the novel is set roughly during the period of the Seven Years' War (1757–63) and pretends to reveal political secrets, and to expose the private profligacy of many of the well-known—and highly colourful—public characters of the time."

        Symptoms, of being amused

      London: published by Thos. McLean, 1822. Oblong folio. (10 5/16 x 14 3/8 inches). 1p. letterpress "Symptoms of a Preface", otherwise engraved throughout. Engraved title with hand-coloured vignette, 41 hand-coloured plates, all by Henry Alken. Contemporary green half morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, the upper cover with onlaid green morocco label titled in gilt within a decorative border, the spine in five compartments with double raised bands, the space between the bands with a gilt fillet, lettered in gilt in the second and fourth compartments. A fine unsophisticated copy of this best-selling collection of Alken's work. The interesting 'Symptoms of a Preface' leaf (not mentioned by either Schwerdt or Tooley) is in effect an advertisement for the second volume of the Symptoms (which only got as far as a further 18 plates). The preface also mentions other similar works that Alken was undertaking, and jokingly offers the book combined with convivial company as a sterling cure for "Dull Care". The work as a whole offers a window onto a certain Regency social milieu: fashionable and middle class sporting England. The humour is aimed at them with the understanding that they will be the most likely purchasers. Tooley 57; Schwerdt I, p.27.

        DESCRIPTION OF DUNLAP'S PAINTING OF THE CHRIST REJECTED [caption title]

      [N.p. n.d., but probably ca. 1822].. Broadside, 11 1/2 x 9 inches. Lightly and evenly tanned. Some light soiling, minor foxing; small hole in top corner, not affecting text. Manuscript notation on verso. Good plus. Broadside describing William Dunlap's painting "Christ Rejected" (1822), with a line noting that admission is 25 cents, though a ticket "admitting the bearer at all times during the Exhibition" is 50 cents. Dunlap (1766-1839) was a dramatist, historian, and painter, authoring numerous stage plays and managing a theatre company. Born in New Jersey, the son of a merchant, Dunlap had little formal schooling but trained as a painter, eventually studying with Benjamin West. While in London, however, he primarily reveled in the theatre scene, writing and producing his first play in 1787 upon his return to New York. He became a managing partner in the American Company in 1796, an organization which eventually went bankrupt. Though he returned officially to his painting career, he flirted with the theatre on and off for financial reasons until 1811, though he continued to write plays. "As his principal biographer, Oral Sumner Coad, has noted, Dunlap was a man of moderate innate talent but of seemingly unlimited versatility, energy, and enthusiasm, who participated in practically all of the significant cultural activities of his day" - ANB. He is considered to be one of the fathers of American drama. He also authored several histories on the American theatre and the first book on the history of the fine arts in the United States, HISTORY OF THE ARTS OF DESIGN. During the 1820s, Dunlap produced a series of large- scale exhibition paintings based on the life of Christ, among which is the painting described in the present broadside. "The picture represents the events which took place when Pilate brought forth Jesus from the Judgment Hall to the Pavement crowned with thorns, and in the gorgeous robe with which he had been arrayed by Herod." The broadside goes on to described the various groups of people assembled and their place amongst the throng on the canvas. All of Dunlap's large exhibition paintings have perished and are known only through descriptions such as this, excepting "Christ Rejected" which is also known in one small-scale study located at the Princeton Art Museum.

        A Geographical Historical and Topographical Description of Van Diemen's LandÖ

      London,: John Souter, 1822.. Octavo, with folding engraved view of Hobart Town after a sketch by Evans; a fine uncut copy with large margins; handsome half crushed red-brown morocco by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. First edition of Evans' important and influential emigrants' guide to Tasmania. A separately issued map was available to buy with the book (which was 7s 6d without the map and 15s with it) but the book is much more often seen without it.Evans' was the first separate work on the colony to have been written, though in fact it was beaten into print by a similar work by Charles Jeffreys - which essentially plagiarised Evans, supposedly from a stolen manuscript. Evans gives an excellent account of the geography, history and prospects of Van Diemen's Land and includes detailed procedures for prospective emigrants. Appendices list landholders, prices for agricultural produce and other relevant information for settlers.Evans was Macquarie's favourite explorer and was appointed Surveyor General of Van Diemen's Land as a reward for his fine services in exploring the territory west of the Blue Mountains and as second-in-command to Oxley. His guide to the colony began life as a guidebook for Macquarie during his tour of Van Diemen's Land; it is the best description of the state of the colony in the first decades of its existence. Evans' explorations and surveys were foremost in advancing the geographical knowledge of the colony - "his achievements would have momentous effects on the future prosperity of the colony", as Macquarie himself said.Ferguson, 861; Wantrup, 55.

        The series of three official reports into the state of New South Wales

      House of Commons,: 1822-, 1823.. Three volumes, folio; fine copies with large margins, uncut in the original printed blue wrappers; a very good set bound into modern leather folders and boxed. A fine set of the full enquiry into Governor Macquarie's administration of New South Wales. Bligh's replacement as governor, Macquarie saw off his unpopular predecessor and set to work on building up the colony; although it was to be in many ways a golden era, it would be distracted by the same unrest that had characterised Bligh's reign. London was alarmed by the continuing disquiet in the colony, and by the governor's visions of grandeur, and sent out Bigge to have a look.John Thomas Bigge (1780-1843) was appointed Royal Commissioner, with sweeping powers, by Lord Bathurst ostensibly to examine the transportation system, but 'it was clear that Macquarie's administration as much as the transportation system was under review. From the moment of his arrival in the colony in 1819 Bigge's relations with Macquarie were strained. As time wore on the tension turned to antipathy and Bigge found himself more in sympathy with the exclusives of the squattocracy than with the Governor. Bigge was assiduous in assembling evidence in New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land, but he was far from judicious and impartial in his methods of collecting it and in the prejudicial conclusions he drew. His series of reports was published in 1822 and 1823. By that time Macquarie had resigned...'.Besides dealing with the question of Macquarie's competence, the three reports contain most important and detailed evidence about life and conditions in New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land in the early nineteenth century, at that crucial point when the colony began to leave behind its penal past and look to the pioneer emigrant for its future. His reports were central to the political history of the period, and their influence can be seen in the later constitutional and political history of Australia.The three reports are:1. Report into the State of the Colony of New South Wales (Ferguson, 854; Wantrup 46n; amended House of Commons issue, 5 August 1822).2. Report on the Judicial Establishments of New South Wales, and Van Diemen's Land (Ferguson, 891; Wantrup, 47; House of Commons, i.e. first issue, 21 February 1823).3. Report on the State of Agriculture and Trade in the Colony of New South Wales (Ferguson, 892; Wantrup, 48; House of Commons, i.e. first issue, 13 March 1823).This is a well-associated set, inscribed by W. Archer at the start of one of the volumes "received these Reports from Lord Dacre through Mr. Fulwood in 1823. W. Archer". The set was later in the library of Rhodes House, Oxford, and has their cancelled library stamp in one volume.Ferguson, 854, 891-2; Spence, 'Bligh', p.12; Wantrup, 46-8.

      London: R. Pollard & Sons, 22 June 1822 [but 1823]. Aquatint, printed in colours and finished by hand, by James Pollard. Expertly restored, re- backed. 12 1/8 x 17 1/2 inches. 15 3/8 x 19 3/16 inches. A fine portrait of the winner of the 1822 Epsom Derby, engraved by James Pollard from his own original drawing. Moses is shown as preparations for the race get under way: the jockey (T. Goodisson) brings over the saddle to the bare- backed horse who is held by his groom. Moses' blankets have just been removed and a stable lad folds them neatly. James Pollard was the youngest son of the London engraver and print-seller Robert Pollard. He began work at the age of fifteen as a painter but quickly turned to engraving as well. In the 1820s his coaching scenes became both fashionable and lucrative. "A stream of coaching paintings followed, many of which he engraved himself. From 1821 he exhibited a small number of pictures at the Royal Academy and the British Institution which brought him more patrons. Between 1830 and 1840, Pollard also painted a number of racing pictures and some of the earliest scenes of steeplechasing on purpose-made courses, many recording the prowess of the few professional and more amateur riders of the day... [In all his work Pollard took great pains over accuracy, this is particularly true of his large scale works and] it is Pollard's large racing scenes which really take off and into which one can gaze and discover a microcosm of the turf" (Charles Lane British Racing Prints p.146) Lane British Racing Prints p.146; Selway James Pollard 1792-1867 p.48; Siltzer p.214.

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."
