        Dramas of the Ancient World

      Edinburgh: Printed for William Blackwood: and T. Cadell, Strand, London, 1822. First and only edition of these historical dramas by Mary Diana Dods, the illegitimate daughter of a Scottish peer who assumed two distinct male identities, one in literature and one in life, with the aid of Mary Shelley. Dramas of the Ancient World features eight verse narratives based on the ancient civilizations of Assyria and Greece, as well as Biblical events, including the Flood and the Plague of Darkness: "now he rides / The stern submissive whirlwind, in his purpose / Robed as in some dark garment, like the cloak / Which ancient Chaos wore, before the smile / of God, illumining the dark abyss, / Created light." The influence of Byron is readily apparent in style and subject, and these well-received dramas were widely compared to his. Mary Shelley called Dramas of the Ancient World "a production of genius," and repeatedly sought a publisher for David Lyndsay's future work, representing herself as a friend of the author. The twentieth-century editor of Mary Shelley's letters, Betty Bennett, grew frustrated in her attempts to document the life of David Lyndsay, whose appearances in the historical record were confusing and few. At the same time, she struggled to learn more about Walter Sholto Douglas, the husband of Shelley's friend Isabel Robinson. Bennett's research eventually revealed a surprising twist: David Lyndsay and Walter Sholto Douglas were the same person, Mary Diana Dods, who passed as a man on the page and in life. Unmarried and unable to support herself through the few paths open to educated women, Dods first assumed the pseudonym of "David Lyndsay" to make it easier to earn a living as a writer. With Shelley's help, Dods later became the "husband" of their mutual friend Isabel Robinson, whose illegitimate child was in need of a father. Shelley secured a passport for Dods under the name "Walter Sholto Douglas," and Mr. and Mrs. Douglas successfully passed as husband and wife in Parisian society. Dods adopted tailored male clothing as part of the ruse, making one of her endnotes in Dramas of the Ancient World particularly intriguing: "In Assyria, [the goddess Astarte] was worshipped as male and female . . . and her votaries were obliged, in the ceremonies of her worship, to exchange habits, the men wearing the women's dresses, and the women the men's." A near-fine copy of a fascinating document of the Romantic period. Octavo, later plum cloth over original drab paper boards, printed paper spine label, text block uncut. Early nineteenth-century ink ownership signature to front free endpaper; late nineteenth-century bookplate to front pastedown. Marginal dampstaining to rear endpaper.

Vol. V: La Biografia di Dante Alighieri varie illustrazioni della Divina Commedia ed il catalogo delle edizioni. ?2 ??4 18 2-368 [$1]. 294 leaves, pp. i-v vi-xii, 1-3 4-574, [2]. Engraved plate. Number of Volumes: Five volumes Bound in contemporary full vellum with double gilt fillet border around gilt roll of palmettes and sheaves of wheat (?). On the spine, elaborate gilt rolls head-to-tail. Title gilt on red, number gilt on black. Stab-binding. Fore and lower edges untrimmed. Some wear to lower fore-corners. Boards bowing a little, else fine. Vellum and gilt bright, text clean and essentially without foxing. A remarkably beautiful set. On the first free end-paper of each volume, a gift inscription reading: "Margaret Lindsay/ from her affectionate/ Grandmama—/ Rome 31st December/ 1838 —". In vol. III there are pressed flowers at 102-103, 263-264. In 1791, Lombardi published, after some twenty years of preparation, the first complete Roman edition of the Commedia, which was received extremely well (and remains one of the most highly-regarded editions in Italy). This edition contains in addition the Rimario (vol. IV), an extraordinary index of rhymed line-endings listed alphabetically, and a series of biographical essays on Dante and other material (including the Visione di Alberico), as well as catalogue of editions of the Commedia. It is an exceptionally useful set, with extensive and various notes; the only shame is that it’s so very beautiful. Brunet calls it a "bonne édition." Margaret Lindsay, born 31 December 1824, received this set from her maternal grandmother, Lady Trotter (Margaret (née Gordon), wife of Sir Coutts Trotter, 1st Bt.); her paternal grandmother (the Hon. Mrs. Robert Lindsay (Elizabeth, née Dick)) had died in 1835. In 1846 Lindsay married Alexander Lindsay, who would in 1869 become the 25th Earl of Crawford and 8th Earl of Balcarres. The Earldom of Crawford is among the oldest in the United Kingdom. The 25th Earl and his son together built up the Bibliotheca Lindesiana, which at the turn of the twentieth century was one of the foremost private libraries in Europe. The present item does not bear a bookplate of the Lindesiana, perhaps because it remained in the personal collection of the countess. Brunet II.507. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Scenes Populaires [and] Scenes de Société [and] Moeurs Parisiennes

      1822. first edition. Popular Scenes" and "Scenes of Society"Two of Pigal's Most Celebrated AlbumsPIGAL, Edme Jean. Scènes Populaires [and] Scènes de Société [and] Moeurs Parisiennes. Paris: chez Gihaut et Martinet, ca. 1822-1830. Folio (14 7/8 x 9 1/2 in; 350 x 242 mm). One hundred and eighteen numbered, hand colored lithographed plates printed by Langlumé. Scènes Populaires 50 plates complete; Scènes de Société 50 plates complete; Moeurs Parisiennes 18 of 100 plates. Contemporary half red morocco over patterned boards ruled in gilt. Smooth spine decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt, marbled end-papers. Spine head and tail expertly and almost invisibly repaired. The majority of plates are clean with just a handful exhibiting mild sunning/toning or foxing. Otherwise a fine collection of these albums - originally available in black and white as well as colored - that are scarcely found complete; the Sadleir copies that Ray examined lacked many plates. In all, the best overview of Pigal's finest and most celebrated work that we have yet encountered."A major French nineteenth century artist and caricaturist, Edme Jean Pigal [1798-1873] studied art in Paris in the studio of Baron Gros. He first exhibited his paintings at the Paris Salon in 1827 and continued to annually exhibit his art there for more than thirty years. Pigal's early art was mainly in the medium of lithography. After 1838 he turned more towards painting, particularly religious and historical scenes commissioned by the French government. His last years were spent as a professor of art at the Lycee in Sens. "Although he was a fine painter it is the lithographic art of Pigal which remains his finest legacy. Beatrice Farwell writes:'From the late 1820's to the late 1830's, he (Pigal) produced numerous lithographs caricaturing contemporary customs and social types, in which he ridiculed the hypocrisy of the bourgeoisie and the vulgarity of the lower classes. His favorite characters were the street urchins of Paris, servants, coachmen and doormen, and lecherous old men' (Beatrice Farwell, The Charged Image: French Lithographic Caricature, 1816-1848, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Santa Barbara, 1989, p. 127).  "Pigal's early lithographic work (c. 1820-1830) concentrates upon the actions of one or two main figures and provides little or no background settingÂ… His lithographs created for individual sale (as opposed to those appearing in the journals) were most often hand-colored before publication. "In some respects Pigal's earthy brand of caricature was closer to the English satirical art of Gillray, Cruikshank and Rowlandson than to the political and social satires of his French contemporaries, such as Daumier and Gavarni. Perhaps for this reason Pigal's lithographs were very popular in BritainÂ…" (http://www.artoftheprint.com/artistpages/pigal_edme_jean_)."Pigal's scenes of the people are good. It is not that the originality is very lively, nor even that the design is very comic. Pigal is comical in moderation, but the feeling in his compositions is good and just. These are vulgar truths, but still truths" (Baudelaire, Oeuvres complètes, 1964 edition, p. 995)."Pigal does play to the groundlings, and no one would accuse him of excessive delicacy, but he knew his world and could depict it incisively in his lithographs" (Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book, p.196). Pigal's albums "have documentary value, and their fresh and unaffected representation of the people, dress, and scenes of the time gives them a degree of charm' (Ray, p. 189). Colas and Hiler highly commend these plates for their humor and depiction of contemporary fashion and costume.Ray,128 (Scènes de Société); 129 (Scènes Populaires); 130 (Moeurs Parisiennes).

Original printed wrappers, a bit soiled, small stain on front wrapper. Edges a bit frayed, minor foxing, but very good. 19th-century library stamp on title. Together 3 items. Rauch, a geographer and civil engineer, is regarded as the founder of French ecological thought. He was the author of one of the first ecological treatises, Harmonie hydro-végétale et météorologique (1802), which he revised and republished under the title Régénération de la nature in 1818 (see previous entry). In this work he pointed out the harm wrought by such destructive practices as deforestation and overfishing, and called for widespread countermeasures, including government regulation, to return the planet to a more harmonious and fruitful state. In 1821, three years after retiring from the civil service, Rauch founded what can be considered the world’s first ecological journal, Annales européennes de physique végétale et d’économie publique (see no. [3] above). Rauch edited the journal and was apparently its primary source of funding; since he was not a rich man, this left his finances in a precarious state. In his 1822 petition (no. [1] above), probably addressed to the French Minister of the Interior, Rauch notes that those landowners who followed his advice to replant their forests have been rewarded by the government with the Cross of the Legion of Honor, while he himself, "who has preached and inspired a thousand similar creations throughout France over the past twenty years, remains forgotten and in need." His Annales européennes has been praised in the Journal de Paris, and "the subjects discussed in the first numbers of these Annales have had the good fortune to be judged of such a high order, that your Ministry sent out five inquiries of the highest importance, addressed to the Prefects and to all the scientific societies in the kingdom; the solutions brought forth by these great minds arrived in succession and were immediately sent to the Royal Academy of Sciences . . . However, I continue to multiply and to develop these useful works in a veritable state of penury." The 110 current subscriptions to his journal, paid for by the Ministry of the Interior, provide only a third of its publication costs; he is thus requesting that the Ministry purchase an additional two thousand subscriptions—"the price of a single painting"—to be distributed to government officials, agricultural societies, provincial magistrates and members of the clergy. The document dated 1 December 1823 (no. [2] above) contains the text of the letter or address that Rauch delivered to the French king, Charles X, when he presented the king with a copy of the first volume of his Annales européennes. In it Rauch begs the king to recognize and support his efforts to restore France’s damaged ecology: "Today I am greatly honored to present to my sovereign, the tribute of the first volume of the Annales européennes, which encompasses, together with the ineffable harmonies of Nature, the current state of France’s physical economy . . . in [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Le Kaire - Vue intérieure de la maison d'Osman Bey

      Il Cairo (al-Q?hira) - Egitto 1822 - Veduta della casa del sultano Osman Bey (Osman I), incisa all'acquaforte su lastra di rame, inserita nella monumentale opera Description de l'Egypte, II° edizione dal 1820-29 voluta da Luigi XVIII, importante risultato culturale dell'occupazione francese in Egitto per il periodo che va dal 1798 al 1801. Bonaparte decise di invadere queste terre per controllare le vie commerciali verso l'india ed assestare in questo modo un duro colpo all'economia britannica. Durante questa operazione, il Nostro favorì l'attività di numerosi artisti, ingegneri, matematici e naturalisti per registrare e catalogare con estrema precisione le costruzioni e i monumenti egiziani nonché la flora e la fauna. Il risultato di questo immane sforzo, che per la pubblicazione coinvolse quasi duemila tra artisti e tecnici oltre a quattrocento incisori, fu l'opera "Description de l'Egypte, ou recueil des observations et des recherches qui ont été faites en Egypte pendant l'expédition de l'armée française", che offre una globale visione scientifica dell'antico e moderno Egitto, nonché la sua storia naturale. La Description ebbe grande influenza sul movimento orientalista pittorico dell'ottocento e diede un contributo fondamentale alla diffusione dell'Egittologia.

        Tyranny unmasked

      Davis and Force 1822 - Rebound in modern brown leather. Gilt spine. Fine binding and cover. New marbled endpapers. Perforated library stamp on title page. Library ink stamp to title page and several pages throughout. Errata slip tipped in rear. Sabin 94495. Howes T65. Cohen 6334. Contents: Section 1. Unmasking the protecting-tariff policy and its advocates from many perspectives; section 2. Arguments against the protecting duty summarized through an analysis of its major consequences; section 3. A general discussion of tyranny and the choice that Americans face. John Taylor wrote Tyranny Unmasked not only to assault the protective tariff and the mercantilist policies of the times but also "to examine general principles in relation to commerce, political economy, and a free government." Taylor is considered one of the premier early systematic theorists of states' rights. In this book Taylor develops his theory of the U.S. Constitution and discusses its effect on social policies, particularly taxation, banking, and tariffs; he also treats mainly protectionism, with a good deal of discussion on the currency as well. "Little-known today, Taylor's work is of great significance in the political and intellectual history of the South and is essential for understanding the constitutional theories that Southerners asserted to justify secession in 1861. He joined with Thomas Jefferson and other agrarian advocates of states' rights and a strict construction of the Constitution in the political battles of the 1790s. His first published writings argued against Secretary of the Treasury Alexander Hamilton's financial program. Construction Construed and Constitutions Vindicated was Taylor's response to a series of post-War of 1812 developments including John Marshall's Supreme Court decision in McCulloch v. Maryland, the widespread issuance of paper money by banks, proposals for a protective tariff, and the attempt to bar slavery from Missouri. Along with many other Southerners, Taylor feared that these and other measures following in the train of Hamilton's financial system, were undermining the foundations of American republicanism. He saw them as the attempt of an "artificial capitalist sect" to corrupt the virtue of the American people and upset the proper constitutional balance between state and federal authority in favor of a centralized national government. Taylor wrote, "If the means to which the government of the union may resort for executing the power confided to it, are unlimited, it may easily select such as will impair or destroy the powers confided to the state governments." Jefferson, who noted that "Col. Taylor and myself have rarely, if ever, differed in any political principle of importance," considered Construction Construed and Constitutions Vindicated "the most logical retraction of our governments to the original and true principles of the Constitution creating them, which has appeared since the adoption of the instrument." Later Southern thinkers, notably John C. Calhoun, were clearly indebted to Taylor." - Reprints of Legal Classics. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Constituição politica da Monarchia Portugueza.

      Lisbon, na Imprensa Nacional, 1822. - 4°, contemporary navy morocco (some wear at extremities, small wormhole along upper joint), gilt border on covers, flat spine richly gilt, crimson morocco label, gilt letter, marbled endleaves, all edges gilt. Woodcut Portuguese royal arms on title-page. In fine condition. 100 pp. *** FIRST EDITION of the first Portuguese Constitution, decreed by the general, extraordinary and constitutional Cortes on September 23, 1822 and accepted by D. João VI on October 1 of the same year. On the half-title verso is stated: "Edição nacional e official." Its hallmark was the triumph of liberalism. "The Constitution of 1822 was a long document with 240 articles. It mainly followed the Spanish constitution of 1812 . to assert the sovereignty of the nation and admit the independence of the three powers - the legistative, the executive, and the judicial . This constitution . was too progressive and too democratic for its time . it lasted for less than two years in its first phase." - Oliveira Marques, History of Portugal, II, 44-5. This is the Constitution that the Andradas and other Brazilian deputies refused to sign. Initially welcomed by Brazilians, the new constitution unexpectedly hastened Brazilian independence. Three days before the Supplemento was published in Lisbon, the Côrtes declared the Brazilian government subordinate to its will. D. João's departure for Portugal, the establishment of a separate Brazilian government under D. Pedro, the Côrtes's increasing efforts to control Brazilian affairs, and the refusal of the Brazilian representatives, led by the Andradas, to sign the new constitution led Brazil to declare its independence in 1822. *** Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 200.

En engelsk översättning utkom 1819. På svenska utkom även "Den ryske krigsfången ibland fransmännen" 1816. Archibald Campbells (1787-?) dramatiska världsomsegling utkom i original i Edinburgh 1816, "A Voyage Round the World, from 1806 to 1812". Han föddes utanför Glasgow och tidigt faderslös gick han i vävarskola. Vid 13 års ålder gick han till sjöss som lärling. Efter ett antal olika tjänster tog han 1806 tjänst som matros på ostindiefararen Themsen och återkom inte till England förrän 1812. Då hade han efter förfrysningar under sina skeppsbrott och genom dåligt genomförda amputationer förlorat båda sina fötter. Som krympling livnärde han sig sedan i Edinburgh genom att krypa omkring och till ett positiv berätta om sina äventyr. Där blir han upptäckt av en välgörare, Mr Smith, som skriver ner hans berättelser och låter publicerar dem. Sabin 10210 för det engelska originalet

        Map of South Carolina, Constructed and Drawn from the District Surveys, ordered by the Legislature: by John Wilson, late Civil and Military Engineer of So. Cara. The Astronomical Observations

      Professor Geo. Blackburn and I. M. Elford, Philadelphia 1822 - Engraved by H. S. Tanner. Entered according to Act of Congress, the 10th day of April 1822, by John Wilson, Agent of the Board of Public Works of the State of South Carolina. Excellent large wall map that was the first large scale map of South Carolina made after independence. Includes an inset map of Charleston Harbor. John Wilson was charged with the task of creating an accurate state map that would show all of the new internal improvements to the State. Tanner referred to the map as "one of our best and most scientific maps." Based on the district surveys commissioned by the State, the map later became the source of the district maps in Mills' Atlas of South Carolina of 1825. The wall map is a composite map of 4 separate sections very recently mounted on new linen by Green Dragon Bindery. It is 45.7 inches wide by 59.8 inches long (116.1 x 151.9 cm) with original outline and wash color, and is in wonderful condition for its age and size. As often occurs with maps issued in sections, the top 2 sections are very slightly wider than the bottom two sections, so when the sections are joined, the border edges do not align perfectly. The map includes a presentation on the original linen as follows: "Presented by John Hazlett, Esq. of Charleston, S.C. March 24, 1823. This very scarce map is infrequently offered.

        Meister Floh.

      1822. HOFFMANN, E.T.A. Meister Floh. Ein Märchen in Sieben Abentheuern zweier Freunde. [2], 267, [3] pp. 8vo., 185 x 120 mm, bound in original boards, illustrated on both covers with sepia aquatints designed by Hoffmann and executed by F.C. Thiele, in modern matching slipcase. Frankfurt am Main: Friedrich Wilmans, 1822. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, and most importantly with this curious book, the first issue of the famous binding which was personally designed by E.T.A. Hoffmann. In subsequent issues the binding was decorated by way of lithography, not aquatint. Hoffmann's scathing satire on the police state, entitled "Master Flea," has the central character portrayed on the cover "travelling in disguise." The Master Flea is the master of ceremonies in a flea circus whose bite grants youth to the victim. The book was censored by the Prussian government, and Hoffmann himself became a suspect of dissent and subversion. The work was a thinly disguised fairy tale, in which Hoffmann quoted directly from actual trial documents and even ridiculed the chief of police. Court proceedings were initiated against the author; on January 23, 1822, the original manuscript of Meister Floh was confiscated on the orders of King Friedrich Wilhelm III. Hoffmann was interviewed at his sick bed on February 22nd; meanwhile Meister Floh was published in the Spring (albeit in somewhat revised form); Hoffmann's case never went to trial: he died on June 24, 1822 after a long illness. Binding expertly recased, modern endpapers. Goedeke VIII, 498, 65. Salomon 173.

        A Topographical Map of the Environs of London, Comprehending the Counties of Middlesex, Essex, Hertford, Oxford, Buckingham, Berks, Hans, Surrey, Sussex, and Kent... on which are Described the Whole of the Turnpike and Carriage Roads... Also Towns, Villages, Rovers, Hills, Gentleman's Seats, and Every Object Interesting to the Traveller or Resident. [Cover Title]

      London: G. & J. Cary, 2nd April, 1822. Overall dimensions approximately 150 x 186 cm. A magnificent and very large folding map, extending from Haverhill in the north down to the south coast and Hungerford across to the coasts of Essex and Kent, original colour in outline marking out the county boundaries and the principle roads, also in block highlighting the parks and estates, dissected into 36 sections and mounted on linen, folds into the original marbled paper slipcase with the publisher's printed label to the upper cover. Some light wear to the case, very good overall. Not in Howgego, though the map probably bears some relation to no. 290: physically a much smaller map, though it is on the same scale as here - two inches to the mile - it was compiled from sheets of the Carys' map of England and Wales. We can trace no other copies presented thus.

        Philosophical Recreations, or Winter Amusements: A Collection of Entertaining & Surprising Experiments in Mechanics, Arithmetic, Optics, Hydrostatics, Hydraulics, Pneumatics, Electricity, Chemistry, Magnetism, & Pyrotechny, or Art of Making Fire Works, Together with the Wonders of the Air Pump, Magic Lanthorn, Camera Obscura, &c. &c. &c. and a Variety of Tricks with Cards

      London: Printed for Thomas Hughes, 1822. First edition, second issue, of this collection of educational home entertainments, first published in 1820. These "winter amusements" were ideally suited for nineteenth-century households whose members felt a moral imperative against idleness. The recreations include number games and puzzles, arts and crafts, home improvement projects, magic tricks and secret codes, and scientific experiments inspired by the likes of Boyle. Some have clear practical application (how to detect counterfeit coins, how to make wax candles), while others do not (how to construct a talking "oracular head," how to ship a fish while keeping it alive). Still others seem downright dangerous (how to enter a room on fire, how to deliver electric shocks with a homemade battery). This second issue includes an ad for the book's sequel, Domestic Amusements, on the lower board. A near-fine copy of a fascinating resource, scarce in original publisher's boards. 18mo, original printed paper boards rebacked, text block uncut. Hand-colored folding engraved frontispiece. Ink ownership inscription to interior of front board, pencil notations to page 81, final fly leaf, and lower board. Early reinforcement to hinge of folding frontispiece; tear to pages 183-184, not affecting text.
