        Egypt, Nubia, and Ethiopia. Illustrated by One Hundred Stereoscopic Photographs, Taken by Francis Frith for Messrs. Negretti and Zambra.

      London: Smith, Elder and Co., 65, Cornhill, M.DCCC.LXII. - 4to, original blind-stamped maroon cloth, gilt-stamped upper cover and spine with ibis and flower ornament, a.e.g. 240 pp., 100 stereographic photographs on printed mounts. A beautifully designed volume illustrated with a splendid series of one hundred stereographic photographs of ancient ruins.British photographer Francis Frith (1822-1898) made three trips to the Holy Land between 1856 and 1859. His photographs, many of them masterful works that established him as a major photographer, sought to confirm the historical authenticity of the places, and by extension, the events, recorded in the BibleÑa response to current debates involving science and religion, offering more 'factual' photographic images in contrast to such romantic works as the lithographs of David Roberts. Frith also viewed his documentary efforts as an act of preservation, noting that 'in addition to the corroding tooth of Time and the ceaseless drifting of the remorseless sand, Temples and Tombs are exposed to continued plundering.' (Egypt and Palestine Photographed and Described).The stereoviews included in this volume were taken during Frith's third expedition to the region. The accompanying texts are by eminent Egyptologist Joseph Bonomi, both a scholar and a draftsman, and Rev. Samuel Sharpe, an author with several books on Egyptian history to his credit. The book was warmly received by contemporary reviewers, the Photographic Journal proclaiming it 'the most magnificent book of the season.a marvel of tyopgraphic and illustrative art' and the Art Journal describing it as 'an intellectual feast.spread before us at a cost of travel and thought not to be lightly valued.' The publishers of Frith's stereoviews, Negretti and Zambra, displayed the book at the International Exhibition of 1862, where it won a medal for 'effective adaptation of stereo photography to book illustration' (Nickel). Negretti and Zambra sold 'Stereoscopes specially adapted for use with this volume, compactly folded in an elegant pocket-book form, fit for the drawing room table,' an advertising slip for which is bound-in at the title page. 'The books of Francis Frith inaugurated the first golden age of albumen-silver photographic illustration (1860-80) during which photographs of great visual strength were supplemented by supportive texts that were decidedly subordinate to the photographs. One of the most outspoken on the esthetics of photography, Frith was among the first photographers to successfully seize the opportunity of using the recently perfected glass-negative and albumen print process to establish a reputation as a master photographic book illustratorÉDuring September, 1856 to July, 1857, he journeyed to Egypt, Palestine, and Syria, where he made full-plate and stereo negatives' (Truthful Lens, p. 30).REFERENCES: Gernsheim, Incunablua, 172; Nickel, Douglas. Francis Frith in Egypt and Palestine, p. 82.CONDITION: Very good, re-hinged, minor rubbing; a lovely, bright copy. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Travels in Syria and the Holy Land Published by the Association for Promoting the Discovery of the Interior Parts of Africa.

      John Murray, London 1822 - xxiii 668 pp., half-title, lithographed portrait frontispiece, 6 engraved plates & maps (2 folding), unobtrusive blindstamp on a few leaves of text, and maps, shelfmark on spine, Bookplate of Bath Municipal Library on front fly leaf, copy clean & in very good condition, edited by William Leake. Johann Ludwig (John Lewis) Burckhardt (1784 - 1817), Swiss traveller and orientalist, published five works; Travels in Nubia (1819), Travels in Syria and the Holy Land (1822), Travels in Arabia (1829), Arabic Proverbs, or the Manners and Customs of the Modern Egyptians (1830), and Notes on the Bedouins and Wahabys (1831). Burckhardt describes in this work various journeys in Syria during 1810 and 1816. It was at Aleppo that he studied Arabic in preparation for his later travels in the Middle East. He was the first European to visit Petra. Burckhardt had been recruited by Sir Joseph Banks on behalf of the African Association to carry out these explorations, but unfortunately, in 1819 he died of dysentery at Cairo when about to start a new journey into the interior of Africa.

      mit einer Vorrede von Dr. S.F. Hermbstädt. Engraved frontis. port. of the author, one folding printed table, & 11 folding lithographed plates. xvi, 526 pp., one leaf with binding prices, one leaf of errata; 10 p.l., xx, one leaf of errata, 388 pp., one leaf of binding supplies with prices, 16 pp. of publisher's ads. Two vols. Small 8vo, fine cont. dark blue sheep, sides bordered in gilt, flat spines nicely gilt, a.e.g. Berlin: Maurer, 1822-23. First edition and the prettiest set imaginable of this extremely rare German bookbinding manual. An invaluable introduction to bookbinding practices of the early 19th century, it is one of the most extensive manuals of the period. Greve (b. 1787), a native of Copenhagen, was a bookbinder and worker in pasteboard in Berlin. The great technologist Hermbstädt (1760-1833), the first chemist in Germany to adopt Lavoisier's views and professor of technological chemistry at the University of Berlin, has contributed a valuable Foreword and many notes. The first volume is concerned with bookbinding techniques and the author describes materials and tools used, methods of dyeing leathers and marbling paper, styles of decoration, etc. The plates depict tools, presses, etc. Plate 3 contains illustrations of hundreds of decorative devices for tooling. The second volume describes methods of making boxes, including some for bindings. At the end is a very extensive index to both volumes. Pages iii-vi in Vol. I and pages i-iv in Vol. II contain a list of subscribers (mostly bookbinders and book dealers in Germany and in German-speaking Czechoslovakia). This provides an invaluable list of provincial bookbinders. Our set also contains Greve's advertisements for his bookbinding and gilding services, bookbinding "kits," binding materials, and specialist papers. A lovely and fresh set. ❧ Pollard & Potter, Early Bookbinding Manuals, 36.

        Tyranny Unmasked. Only Edition. Washington City, 1822

      1822 - An Important Southern Voice in the Political Debates That Followed the War of 1812 Taylor, John, Of Caroline [1753-1824]. Tyranny Unmasked. Washington City [DC]: Printed and Published by Davis and Force, 1822. 349 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5"). Recent period-style calf, blind panels to boards, lettering piece and gilt fillets to spine, endpapers renewed. Moderate toning, light foxing in places, a few leaves have faint markings in pencil, two very faint tiny marks in pen to title page ("45549" and "c"). A handsome copy. $1,200. * Only edition. Taylor's work is an essential part of the political and intellectual history of the South, especially Southern constitutional theories used to justify secession. Tyranny Unmasked expands his theories of society, government and the U.S. Constitution introduced in An Inquiry Into the Principles and Policy of the Government of the United States (1814) and expanded in Construction Construed (1820). Tyranny Unmasked discusses the effect of the Constitution on social policies, particularly taxation, banking, tariffs, protectionism and currency. Along with many other Southerners, Taylor feared centralized national government, believing it would corrupt the virtue of the American people and upset the proper constitutional balance between state and federal authority.

        The Story of our first Parents, selected from Milton's Paradise Lost: For the use of young Persons ?

      John Murray ?, London 1822 - First edition. An abridgement for children of Milton's account of Adam and Eve, by the celebrated actress Sarah Siddons (1755-1831).Siddons' admiration for Milton was lifelong: 'By the age of ten she was already responsive to the poetry of Milton ? Perhaps his curious combination of sensuality and austerity gave particular satisfaction to this girl who, as a woman said that she feared to play Shakespeare's Cleopatra as she should be played'. After her official retirement in 1813, Siddons gave frequent dramatic readings of Milton and Shakespeare - as represented by Lawrence's portrait of her with works by both authors -and Paradise Lost was her preferred text. Manvell suggests that Milton's 'strong dramatic sense and the grandeur of his rhetoric must have excited her', but Siddons also saw the merits of his material for a juvenile audience. As she describes in the Preface to the present work, she completed her abridgements for the use of her own children that they might develop 'an early admiration' of Milton, and now chooses to issue them for public consumption.The work provoked particular invective from the London Magazine, which acknowledged Siddons' greatness but was aggravated by her Miltonian foray: 'could she really condescend to become an authoress on the strength of an eighteen-penny copy of paradise lost and a pair of scissors?' The reviewer accuses John Murray of being blinded by Siddons' fame in his agreement to publish the work. The Story of our first Parents was issued in the same year under the separate title, Abridgement of Paradise Lost, which is identical in every other respect. Perhaps the variants were intended to appeal to separate adult and juvenile audiences. 8vo (211 x 133 mm), pp. iv, 190; light foxing to prelims; contemporary full polished calf, gilt in compartments with contrasting label; joints repaired; contemporary dedication inscription to front pastedown: 'Jane Wowen Feilde / the gift of / Mrs Yorke'.

      Roma 1822 - LE ANTICHITA ROMANE La serie delle vedute di Antichità Romane, composta di 101 tavole, viene realizzata con il ricavato della e vendita dei rami della Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divise in 40 vedute edita nel 1817. Con quest’opera, per il numero delle tavole e per il formato prescelto, di grandi dimensioni, l’incisore vuole affermarsi come figura di primo piano nel mondo artistico romano. In quest’opera Rossini si cimenta in un diretto confronto con il suo predecessore G. B. Piranesi che costituisce un punto di riferimento per un incisore di vedute antiche, per quanto riguarda l’originalità e l’ampiezza della riproduzione. Il Rossini, oltre a sottolineare la sua influenza nella scelta del titolo e di alcune didascalie, usa frequentemente le medesime inquadrature e identici punti di vista del maestro veneziano. Altro elemento riconducibile a Piranesi è l’uso della luce e dei forti contrasti chiaroscurali. In queste tavole raggiunge una certa padronanza del mezzo tecnico che gli permette di cimentarsi in inquadrature più complesse nelle quali si nota un’organizzazione spaziale molto articolata. Nelle tavole è frequente il ricorso al taglio diagonale della veduta, consentendogli una più ampia possibilità di graduare i chiaroscuri in profondità. Tuttavia essendo l’opera composta da molte tavole presenta una certa discontinuità ed è possibile riscontrare in alcune di esse qualche incertezza nella impostazione prospettica ed alcune durezze nel segno. Rimanendo fedele alla tradizione corrente, la scelta dei soggetti operata dal Rossini non introduce nessuna novità; sono infatti rappresentati tutti i più importanti monumenti e luoghi archeologici di Roma. Elementi di novità sono sottolineati dalla registrazione puntuale dei lavori di indagine e di scavo intrapresi in quegli anni che dalla originalità delle inquadrature. Di particolare interesse da un punto di vista documentario sono le ultime quattro incisioni relative alla distruzione della Basilica di San Paolo fuori le mura, in seguito all’incendio del 15 luglio 1823. La volontà di voler animare le vedute, restituendo il monumento al suo contesto storico e la propria inadeguatezza nel campo della figura porta Rossini ad una collaborazione con Bartolomeo Pinelli, incisore romano, interprete e illustratore del costume e della vita popolare; a cui si devono le figure e i gruppi caratteristici che corredano le vedute. Pinelli in alcuni casi, riprende i motivi tratti dalle sue precedenti raccolte di Costumi pittoreschi romani. ROMAN ANTIQUITIES The series of views Antichità Romane, made of 101 plates, was realized with the proceeds of the sale of the plates used for Raccolta di cinquanta principali vedute di antichità tratte dai scavi fatti in Roma in questi ultimi tempi divided in 40 views, published in 1817. This is the work with which the artist wanted to become one of the most important artists in the Roman cultural life; we can state that if we consider the size of the work and the subject he choose. In this work Rossini tested himself with his predecessor, G. B. Piranesi, who was considered as a point of reference when it came to ancient views and originality. Rossini, was deeply influenced by Piranesi, as it can be seen in the title, the legends, the same points of views and framing. Another important element he took from Piranesi is the use of light and the contrast of chiaroscuro. In these plates Rossini reached the higher mastery of the technique, realizing also extremely particular framings and a new and complex organization of the space. In the plates quite common is the diagonal view of the subject, which gave him the possibility to elaborate more the chiaroscuro. However, since the work is made of many plates, it is quite discontinuous and some of the plates present some indecision in the perspective formulation and a little harshness in the mark. Always following the tradition of his time, Ross

        THE DUPLICATE LETTERS, THE FISHERIES AND THE MISSISSIPPI. DOCUMENTS RELATING TO TRANSACTIONS AT THE NEGOTIATION OF GHENT.

      Washington. 1822. - 256,3pp. Original boards, paper label. Front board detached, rear hinge cracked, spine and label chipped, corners bumped, early manuscript title on front board. Contemporary gift inscription on first front free endpaper, contemporary ownership inscriptions on titlepage. Second front free endpaper partially torn away, some loss to a later interior leaf, slightly affecting text. Tanned, occasional light foxing. Good. Untrimmed. In a modern cloth clamshell case. A copy with a fascinating provenance, given from a future President of the United States to his youngest brother, Thomas Boylston Adams. A pen inscription on the front fly leaf of this volume in the hand of John Quincy Adams, reads: "Thomas B. Adams from his brother John Quincy Adams." On the titlepage is the ownership signature of Thomas Adams and the slightly later signature of an A. Dunlop. Thomas Adams served a a representative in the state legislature for the Adams family's hometown of Quincy Massachusetts, and later was a senior magistrate in the Massachusetts State Circuit Court. The text brings together the correspondence and reports of the negotiations conducted by John Quincy Adams with the British to resolve the War of 1812. As ever, Adams was very sensitive to criticism, and this exhaustively defends his work. It appeared in 1822 when Adams was Secretary of State, in an attempt to counter rumors that he had offered navigation rights on the Mississippi River to the British during the negotiations.

[Autograph Letter, Signed, to Judge John Davis, Baltimore, March 20, 1822]. Two 9-3/4" x 7-3/4" leaves, content in fine hand to both, second leaf franked and docketed on verso. Light toning, vertical and horizontal fold lines, minor loss at wax seal with no loss to text, few minor chips and tears to second leaf. A rare document, unknown to the American historian who recently published a detailed account of the Smith case. $4,500. * Plaintive plea for mercy addressed to Davis, judge of the United States district court for the district of Massachusetts, by the "disconsolate" wife of 29 year-old Baltimore sea captain Joseph Findley Smith, the first American convicted under the U.S. laws of 1808 and 1818 outlawing the transatlantic slave trade. In April 1820 Smith's schooner, the Plattsburgh, was captured off the West African coast by the U.S. Naval warship Cyane. While the Plattsburgh had no African natives aboard, it had been secretly outfitted as a slaver in Cuba with 50 sets of slave shackles, a set of deck cannons and a portfolio of fictitious papers of "Spanish" ownership. Smith was arrested and taken to Boston, where, in a trial presided over by U.S. Supreme Court Justice Joseph Story in January 1821, he was found guilty. With Monroe's hope that he would be "made an example of," sentenced to a five-year jail term. The trial was a small media sensation. More than a year later, while Smith begged Monroe for a pardon, the "decent but poor girl" he had married just before sailing for Africa met with the President and Story Both men were sympathetic to this "suffering daughter of America"; Story advised her to have her husband confess to and apologize for his crime and implicate the secret owners of his ship and their Cuban confederates. The impoverished Smith, who had not profited at all from the illegal voyage, complied, and was released from jail on August 30, 1822. Mrs. Smith wrote (in part) to the federal judge who had presided at a related slave-trade trial: "We were not more than three months married, before he took his leave of me, and he has not yet returned. And, oh, heavens had I only known what voyage he was going he should never have left me, no, he should still been with. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
