        Hawking

      London: Published by T. McLean, 1823. Coloured aquatint. Dated 1820 but published in 1823. In excellent condition with the exception of some foxing in the margins. Image size: 8 x 12 inches. A pretty aquatint depicting a group of hunters hawking, from Henry Alken's celebrated book "The National Sports of Great Britain". This charming print by Henry Alken comes from a work entitled "The National Sports of Great Britain", comprised of coloured aquatints of sporting scenes. Published in 1824 by Thomas McLean, the images vary in subject from Bull baiting to Otter hunting. This charming print is the first plate in a series of shooting prints. Henry Thomas Alken was born into what became an artistic dynasty. He studied under the miniature painter J.T. Barber and exhibited his first picture (a miniature portrait) at the Royal Academy when he was sixteen. From about 1816 onwards he "produced an unending stream of paintings, drawings and engravings of every type of field and other sporting activity. He is best remembered for his hunting prints, many of which he engraved himself until the late 1830s.... To many, sporting art is 'Alken', and to describe his work or ability is quite unnecessary."

        A Flora of North America, illustrated by coloured figures drawn from nature

      Philadelphia: Vol. I: M. Carey & Sons; Vol. II & III: H.C. Carey & I. Lea, 1823. 3 volumes, quarto. (10 1/2 x 8 3/4 inches). 106 uncoloured engraved plates (1 folding), from drawings by the author, by Cornelius Tiebout (29), G.B. Ellis (32), F. Kearney (23), J. Boyd (7), J. Drayton (6), C. Goodman (6), Jacob J. Plocher (2), and J.L. Frederick (1). (Plate 63 in vol. II bound as two plates, small rust hole in plate 80 in vol.III, half-titles lacking). Contemporary red morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spine divided into unequal compartments by two pairs of fillets, lettered in the second and numbered in the fourth compartments, the others elaborately decorated in gilt (scuffed, hinges weak or splitting) Provenance: Abraham Bloodgood (Flushing, N.Y., book-labels); Daniel Bartlett Beard (author, conservationist and first superintendant of the Florida Everglades national Park, armorial bookplates) Very rare uncoloured issue of an important American flora, "magnificently illustrated" (DAB) with "Plates [that] are clear, soft and lovely" (Bennett). The work includes the first successful use of stipple-engraving in the United States. This set includes the rare 'To Subscribers' leaf in Volume II. In addition to its significance as a botanical work, Barton's Flora.. . is also one of the most important early colour plate books entirely produced in the United States. "The plates were made by [among others] Cornelius Tiebout, the first really skilled engraver born in the United States, although he trained in London for two years in the 1790's to perfect his technique" (Reese). This uncoloured issue is particularly interesting as Barton states in the advertisement to the first volume that some of the "plates are printed in colour" - none of the plates in the present volume show any signs of colour and are therefore a variant issue of those used in the coloured version, and not merely plates that were not hand-coloured in this country. These may constitute early experimental issues of the plates - produced before the combination of colour-printing and hand-colouring was arrived at. The text gives details of each species, its Latin binomial, common name, and class and order according to the Linnaean system, followed by interesting information about the history of the discovery of the species and details about its geographical range. Barton, the nephew of Benjamin Smith Barton, was appointed a naval surgeon in 1809 and remained on the Navy's list throughout his life (he was buried with full military honours in Philadelphia in 1856). "In 1815 Barton was chosen professor of botany at the University of Pennsylvania, charming many with his light-hearted herborizing trips along the Schuykill and his lectures which were, contrary to bookish times, demonstrated in his well-stocked conservatory" (DAB). His botanical publications, which appeared over a relatively short span of nine years, began with his Flora Philadelphicae prodromus (1815) and culminated with the present work (1820-24) and his Vegetable materia medica of the United States (1817-19). BM(NH) I, p.105; Bennett p. 9 (incorrect plate count); Dunthorne 26; Nissen BBI 84; MacPhail Benjamin Smith Barton and William Crillon Barton 19; Meisel III, p.385; Pritzel 446; Reese Stamped with a National Character 11; Sabin 3858; Stafleu & Cowan TL2 236.

        To His Most Excellent Majesty King George the Fourth This Monument of Art Is, By Permission, Most Respectfully Dedicated By His Majesty's Dutiful, Obedient Servant & Subject John Whittaker

      London: John Whittaker, 1823. Hand-coloured aquatint and gold printed engraving on vellum. A masterful engraving commemorating the coronation of King George the Fourth "The Ceremonial of the Coronation of His Most Sacred Majesty King George the Fourth" was a sumptuously produced series of engravings by James and Francis Stephanoff under the supervision of John Whittaker portraying the principal participants in that coronation. The coronation itself was the most expensive ever financed by the British people. The Prince of Wales was actively involved in every aspect of the ceremony, including the costumes which derived from Elizabethan and Jacobean times. Of particular interest in this plate is St. Edward's crown held on a cushion in the gloved hands of the Dean of Westminster, John Ireland. The crown, made of gold and silver, is composed of four half arches that join and are surmounted by a cross. The whole was adorned with 1,213 diamonds, which were hired for the coronation but which were returned in 1823 when Parliament refused to buy them. St. Edward's crown is now adorned, of course, with the Crown Jewels, which give it quite a different character. The Coronation signalled the very different role George played as King in the cultural life of England, in contrast to previous kings and queens, particularly the Hanoverians. With his expansions of Buckingham House and Carlton House, and the Royal Art Collection, as well as his creation of Brighton Pavilion and the National Portrait Gallery, the great growth of the Royal Collections. All these were expensive, but were projects and acquisitions befitting a nation that had become an empire. John Whittaker's "Ceremonial" was published in 1823. There were 43 sets. The titles on all the plates were printed in gold, using a technique Whittaker had devised to print an edition of the Magna Carta in 1815. The illustrations were by James and Francis Stephanoff, and engraved (using aquatint and mezzotint) by S. W. Reynolds, William Bennett and others. All were color printed and hand-painted, many with rich, gold embellishment. The elaborate gold printed calligraphy is surmounted with a beautiful insignia comprised of St. Edward's Crown, various other Regalia, including the three Swords of State, the three ostrich feathers, heraldic badge of the Prince of Wales, and ribbons with the motto of the Prince of Wales: Ich Dien (I Serve) and the motto of the King of Great Britain: Dieu et Mon Droit, all exquisitely tooled. Martin Hardie, 69-71; the Royal Collection website; "Coronation of George IV" georgianindex.

        His Royal Highness The Prince Augustus-Frederick, Duke of Sussex, Earl of Inverness, Baron of Arklow, Knight of the Most Noble Order of the Garter, Doctor of the Civil Law, Colonel of the Hon. Artillery Company, President of the Society For the Encouragement of ARTS, &c. And Grand Master of the FREE & ACCEPTED MASONS, IN HIS ROBERS OF ESTATE, His Train borne by Major-General OGG

      (London: John Whittaker, 1823. Hand-coloured aquatint with gold embellishments and gold printed engraving on vellum. Some marginal soiling and scattered foxing. Mild creasing typical of vellum. An exquisite portrait of Prince Augustus Frederick attending the coronation of his brother, George the Fourth Augustus Frederick (1773-1843), Duke of Sussex, was the sixth son of George III, and the most popular member of the Royal Family with the British public. Some of his cultural enthusiasms are indicated in Whittaker's gold printed and monumental title: President of the Society of Arts, Grand Master of the Masons and Doctor of Civil Law. He was later President of the Royal Society (1830-38). He lived at Kensington Palace and amassed a great library of 50,000 volumes. In the coronation procession from Westminster Hall to Westminster Abbey, he was cheered, a response not accorded all the royal brothers by any means. Prince Augustus Frederick married Lady Augusta Murray in 1793, without parental consent, and the marriage was annulled in 1794, though he continued to live with her until 1801. They had two children. In 1831, he married Lady Cecilia Letitia Buggin, again without Royal or Parliamentary consent. The Duke of Sussex was popular with the public in part because of his opposition to slavery and the Corn Laws, his support of Catholic Emancipation and Parliamentary reform, though these views put him in opposition to several of his brothers, including the two that became King, George and William. He was Victoria's favorite uncle and gave her away at her wedding. This plate comes from "Ceremonial of the Coronation of His Most Sacred Majesty, King George the Fourth". A sumptuous volume produced by Westminster bookbinder and printer, John Whittaker, to commemorate George's coronation. Most of the 40 hand-colored and gold printed plates portray the prime participants in the splendid costumes selected by George for the occasion. The Coronation was the most expensive to date, and it signalled the very different role George played as King in the cultural life of England, with his expansions of Buckingham House and Carlton House, his creation of Brighton Pavilion, the great growth of the Royal Collections. All these were expensive, but were projects and acquisitions befitting a nation that had become an empire. John Whittaker's "Ceremonial" was published in 1823. There were 43 folio sets. The titles on all the plates were printed in gold, using a technique Whittaker had devised to print an edition of the Magna Carta in 1815. The illustrations were by James and Francis Stephanoff and engraved by S. W. Reynolds, William Bennett and others. All were color printed and hand-painted, many with gold embellishments. The elaborate gold printed calligraphy is surmounted with a very handsome insignia that combines the three feathers, symbol of the Prince of Wales and the Regalia of the King, including St. Edward's crown, the three swords of state, mottoes and badges of the Royal Orders, beautifully tooled. Hardie, 69-71; The Royal Collection website; "Coronation of George IV" georgianindex.

        A Complete Historical, Chronological, and Geographical American Atlas, being a guide to the history of North and South America, and the West Indies: exhibiting an accurate account of the discovery, settlement, and progress, of their various kingdoms, states, provinces, &c. Together with the wars, celebrated battles, and remarkable events, to the year 1822

      Philadelphia: H.C. Carey & I. Lea, 1823. Folio. (17 1/2 x 11 7/8 inches). Mounted on guards throughout, letterpress title (copyright notice on verso), 1p. Advertisement (verso blank), 1p. Contents (verso blank), 46 double-page hand-coloured engraved maps of the United States, all but one with borders of letterpress descriptive text, 1 uncoloured double-page engraved view showing the comparative heights of mountains throughout the world, 1 hand-coloured double-page engraved table showing the comparative lengths of the principal rivers worldwide, 5 letterpress tables (4 double-page [3 of these hand-coloured]), 18pp. of letterpress text. Expertly bound to style in half calf over contemporary marbled paper covered boards, flat spine in six compartments divided by gilt roll tools, red morocco label in the second compartment, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt. One of the most important early atlases printed in the United States: a handsome atlas of the Americas, with individual colour maps of each state in the Union, including a seminal map of the West by Stephen H. Long. At the time of publication this was the best and most detailed atlas to be produced in the United States. Fielding Lucas, the major Baltimore printer, was the principal engraver and substantial historical background text accompanies each map. Among the most noted maps in the atlas is Major Stephen H. Long's "Map of Arkansa and other Territories of the United States." That map, which depicts the Missouri basin between Nashville in the east, the Mandan villages in the north and the Rocky Mountains in the west, was based on the surveys conducted by Long on his expeditions of 1819 and 1820. The map published in Carey & Lea's atlas preceded the official account of that expedition by expedition botanist Edwin James, which included a smaller map with similar detail (titled "Country drained by the Mississippi Western Section"). Carey and Lea's 1823 publication of James Account perhaps explains the prior inclusion of this map with Long expedition information in their atlas. On this famous map is the printed legend, which would perpetuate a myth for many years to come, identifying the high plains as the "Great American Desert." Carey and Lea's atlas was first issued in 1822; this is the 1823 second issue, substantially the same as the first but with a new title and revised states of several maps and text leaves (generally minor revisions, including additional shading to maps and improved resetting of several text leaves, though this copy with first state settings of the Maryland and Virginia text leaves). Howes C133 ("aa"); Phillips 1373a; Sabin 15055; Wheat, Transmississippi West 348 and 352.

        Geographical, Statistical, and Historical Map of Porto Rico and the Virgin Islands.

      Philadelphia: 1823 - Fine original hand colored map of the Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, from the first edition of Carey and Lea's 'A Complete Historical, Chronological, and Geographical American Atlas, being a Guide to the History of North and South America, and the West Indies . to the Year 1822', the best atlas of nineteenth century America. With the English, Danish and Spanish possessions indicated by color; with a very dramatic delineation of the mountains and coast line of 'Porto Rico'. A very vibrant, strong impression. With text below map and at both sides, pertaining to topography, climate, lands, towns, roads and canals, education, government and history. This map, according to History Detectives (Season 6, Episode 4: Lincoln Forgery) was evidently part of an Abraham Lincoln memorabilia scam in which a forger named Harry Sickles worked with Eugene Field II to pass off items in Field's collection as Lincoln items. Sickles and Field managed to convince William P. Brown, the still living coachman of Abraham Lincoln, that they wanted his signature on the verso of their items. Brown's signature, and the notary's signature are genuine; the text referring to the map being given by Mrs. Lincoln to Brown in 1866 was added by the forger. This is the handwritten note on the verso: "This is from the collection of old books, papers, maps, etc presented to her coachman, Wm. P Brown, by Mrs. Lincoln in 1866. (Signed) Wm P Brown. The signatures are genuine. (Signed) Frank E. Thatcher". There is a blue notary stamp, (Muskegon County, Mich. 1933) and a circular blind stamp. Howe's C133. Image size: 20 3/4 x 16 1/2" on paper 22 1/4 x 17 1/2". [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        A New American Atlas containing Maps of the Several States of the North American Union, projected and drawn on a uniform scale from documents found in public offices of the United States and State Governments, and other original and authentic information by Henry S. Tanner

      Philadelphia: H.S. Tanner, 1823. Folio. (23 7/8 x 16 5/8 inches). Letterpress half-title, 1p. index and 18pp. text. Engraved title with vignette of the "First Landing of Columbus in the New World", 18 fine hand-coloured engraved maps (16 double-page, 2 folding). Expertly bound to style in half-calf over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spine gilt and divided into seven compartments by fillets and roll tools, lettered in the second compartment, the others with repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers A fine copy of the first collected edition of "the most distinguished atlas published in the United States during the engraving period" (Ristow). Tanner's New American Atlas contained the most accomplished series of maps of America that had yet appeared in an atlas. Of the greatest importance were the maps of American states. These maps were drawn up using a careful combination of original surveys and the best existing published sources. The evident high cost of production meant that the publishers took the decision to issue the maps in five separate parts which were published from 1819 to 1823. A second revised edition appeared in 1825. The maps, all of which are carefully hand-coloured, include a double-page world map, 4 double-page maps of continents, a map of South America on two joined sheets (numbered 6 and 7 in the index), a map of North America on 4 joined sheets (numbered 8 -11) and 11 double-page maps of the various States. The very large map of North America is of particular beauty and note. Wheat writes: "This map was a landmark - a great cartographical achievement ... Tanner made good use of a large number of intervening map, those of interest here being Humboldt's 'New Spain,' Pike's various maps, Long's map, and Pedro Walker's 'Map of New California' ... This 1822 map of North America was the progenitor of a long line of famous maps" (Wheat, II: pp. 82-87). Contemporary reviews of the atlas were favourable: the New American Atlas "is decidedly one of the most splendid works of the kind ever executed in this country" (United States Gazette, September 1823). Never "has either America or Europe, produced a geographical description of the several States of the Union, so honorable to the Arts, and so creditable to the nation as Tanner's American Atlas." (National Advocate 25 August 1824). Perhaps the most enthusiastic report came from the scholar Jared Sparks who wrote in the April 1824 issue of the North American Review that "as an American Atlas, we believe Mr. Tanner's work to hold a rank far above any other, which has been published." Howes T29; Phillips 1376; cf. Ristow American Maps and Map Makers pp. 154 &193-198; Rumsey 2892; Sabin 94319; Wheat, Mapping the Transmississippi West 350.

        Bound Volume of the Daily National Intelligencer for the Year 1823

      1823 - Bound Volume, Daily National Intelligencer, Washington, D.C., January 1 to December 31, 1823. Approximately 312 issues, including one 4 pp. The only issues lacking are December 2 and December 3 (the days pertaining to the Monroe Doctrine). An issue of note, May 30, 1823, reports on the First Intersectional Horse Race, which took place on May 27, 1823. Eclipse represented the North and Henry represented the South. "The third heat won also by eclipse by four lengths- and of course he took the purse of 40,000 dollars. It was a tight race, certainly, and must have afforded the highest degree of interest to those who witnessed it."Historical BackgroundThe Daily National Intelligencer was founded as the National Intelligencer and Washington Advertiser by Samuel Harrison Smith in 1800. The paper became the tri-weekly National Intelligencer in 1810 and became the Daily in 1813. In its early years, it served as the voice of the Jefferson, Madison, Monroe, and J. Q. Adams administrations. Its editors, Joseph Gales, Jr., and William W. Seaton, were well known and associated with the National Intelligencer from 1813 until its demise in 1869. The Intelligencer served as the voice of the federal government until the election of Andrew Jackson, when it switched to the Whig party. The Intelligencer was primarily a political newspaper, though it did move sometimes between being "friendly" to administrations and taking a more neutral approach. Like most political newspapers in the partisan press period, the Intelligencer always relied heavily on lucrative Congressional printing contracts for its financial support. The paper was noted for its full coverage of Congress and other government information, including proclamations, notices and advertisements. Seaton and Gales employed shorthand reporters, including themselves occasionally, to take down verbatim reports of Congressional debates and speeches. Because of its depth of political coverage, the Intelligencer was one of the more popular exchange newspapers during the early part of the 19th century. Many other newspapers took their coverage of national politics and government directly from the Intelligencer.ConditionOriginal marbleized paper covers and leather spine. Spine in poor condition, separated from many of the bound issues. "Com Ins Co, Salem, Mas" written in ink on the first page of each issue. Bookplates of the Essex Institute on inside of front cover.

        Autograph Letter, signed ("Lemuel Shaw"), introducing Mr. Charles J. Henshaw

      [Boston], 1823. 1 p. pen and ink on paper. 1 vols. 4to. Small closed tear at margin, old folds, remnant of prior mounting on verso of left margin. 1 p. pen and ink on paper. 1 vols. 4to. Lemuel Shaw Helps a Man on the Run. A letter of introduction by lawyer and future State Supreme Court Chief Justice Lemuel Shaw for Charles J. Henshaw of Connecticut, a lawyer and man of some means who had long resided in Montreal. On June 2, 1823 Henshaw shot and killed one John Swails in Montreal. Henshaw believed Swails to be part of a group of hooligans who, following the custom of charivari, were persistently harrassing his sister and brother-in-law, George Holt, following their marriage. This letter, though the year is left off, appears to be written shortly after the fatal event. It reads, in part, "I herewith hand you this letter of introduction from my friend Mr. Charles J Henshaw, descendant of this town ... Mr. George [sic] J. Henshaw is a lawyer in Montreal. Mr. Charles [sic] H. Holt, is borther in law of Mr. H & a merchant in Quebec. I believe he thought it might be more agreeable & useful to you to make arrangements with a lawyer & he has added a letter to Mr. Gregy ..." Although the man Henshaw shot, John Swails, turned out to be his own servant and thus not likely to have been one of the instigators of the charivari, public and legal opinion sided with Henshaw and the Holts. Following the incedent they fled across the border to the United States, Henshaw eventually marrying and settling in Brooklyn Heights, while Holt returned to Montreal.

        Delineations of Fonthill and its Abbey.

      Shaftesbury: Published by the Author, C. Knight & Co. 1823. Folio, xxvi, 127, [1]pp., large paper copy (360 x 290mm), half-title, additional hand-coloured aquatint pictorial title-page, 2 hand-coloured aquatints, 13 uncoloured engravings (lightly foxed as usual), and 16 woodcut vignettes in the text all on india paper, large lithographed folding plan, hand-coloured in outline, genealogical tables, with slip offering marked-up catalogues of the Fonthill sale tipped in at beginning, publisher's green morocco-backed pictorial printed boards, rubbed, upper joint split at head and foot, head of spine frayed. "Fonthill Abbey was one of the most remarkable houses ever built in Britain. A romantic folly, it was designed for the eccentric collector William Beckford (1759-1844). With money largely acquired from West Indian sugar plantations Beckford was fabulously wealthy. Although his family origins were distinctly middle class, he was keen to claim an honourable lineage stretching far back into the Middle Ages. Beckford therefore invented a large and noble family tree and decided to use the Gothic Revival style when rebuilding his house. The most fashionable architect of the day, James Wyatt (1746-1813), was commissioned by Beckford to design his new house. Wyatt looted medieval England for ideas and the scale of his building was immense. The house gained celebrity status… with the phenomenal 225 foot tower at its heart, based on Ely Cathedral's octagon… The cost of building Fonthill Abbey was enormous and in 1823, Beckford was forced to sell the abbey and most of its contents. This sale saved Beckford from suffering the consequences of Wyatt's notoriously slack supervision of his buildings. The tower, built with completely inadequate foundations, collapsed in 1825. The ruins were cleared away 20 years later: so that nothing now remains of Beckford's fantasy."—RIBA. RIBA Catalogue III, 2881; Abbey, Scenery, 418.

        De Capta a Mehemethe II Constantinopoli [Fall of Constantinople]

      1823 - (CONSTANTINOPLE) LEONARD OF CHIOS. LANGUS, Godefridus. De Capta a Mehemethe II Constantinopoli [Fall of Constantinople]. Paris: Didot le Jeune for Charles Stuart, 1823. Quarto, original full black embossed morocco, raised bands, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. $4200.Very rare first edition of two important eyewitness accounts of the fall of Constantinople at the hands of Mehmed II in 1453, with engraved folding plan of the cityâ€"one of only 60 copies printed for Charles Stuart to distribute privately. Handsomely bound in full morocco in the ‘relievo’ style.Leonard of Chios (d. 1482), a Catholic prelate and the Pope’s emissary to Emperor Constantine XI, became a witness to Mehmed II’s successful assault on Constantinople and the city’s fall to Muslim troops in 1453. He escaped the slaughter and returned to Chios, where he penned this account to the Pope; the letter was first published in 1544. Godefridus Langus was apparently also an eyewitness; his account first appeared in print in 1594. Manuscripts of these works were acquired by Britain’s ambassador to Paris, collector and amateur historian Charles Stuart, Baron Stuart de Rothesay (1779-1845). Stuart had the manuscripts transcribed by Jean-Baptiste L’Ecuy and published 60 copies of this work to be given away privately, not sold. The work has consequently always been very rare and desirable. Dibdin’s “Library Companion” mentions a “very beautiful, curious, and interesting quarto printed by Sir Charles… the only copies of this work I have seen in England are those in the libraries of the Duke of Bedford, Earl Spencer, and the Reverend Stephen Watson.” The binding of embossed ‘relievo’ morocco is quite possibly by the trade binders Remnant & Edmonds, who were the leading producers of this kind of elaborately embossed binding. Their process to make leather appear to be intricately carved wood was found so ingenious and convincing that the firm was awarded a medal for binding at the 1851 Great Exhibition. Atabey 705. Blackmer 1909. Brunet III, 984. Engraved armorial bookplate of Michael Tomkinson, Franche Hall, Worcestershire; catalogue excerpt tipped to rear flyleaf indicates that this copy was lot 1257 in the Tomkinson sale at Sotheby’s on July 3, 1922.Light foxing to text.

Pencil doodling on pp. VIII-IX in the first part. Lines in red pencil over pp. 48 and 61 in part 2. Later half calf with raised bands, red title labels and marbled edges (Chr. Schaaf Buchbinderei, Hamburg). Three volumes. With the book plate of Victor von Stedingk. Spruth p. 359. Bartholomäus Sastrow (1520 -1603) among other things Pomeranian diplomat, mayor of Stralsund and notary of the imperial court in Speyer. At the age of 75, in 1595, he wrote this autobiography which "durch lebendige Auffassung und Darstellung der berichteten Thatsachen und ihre frische humoristische Sprache, in der sich hochdeutsche Mundart mit niederdeutschen Provincialismen und lateinischen Citaten mischen, ausgezeichnet ist. So hat er sich durch Leben und Schrift nicht nur in der pommerschen, sondern auch in der allgemeinen deutschen Geschichte eine hervorragende Stelle und ein unvergängliches Denkmal erworben" (Theodor Pyl, ADB). In addition to his own journals and letters, he also made use of official documents to which he had access as a notary, chronicles such as Johann Berckmann's "Stralsundische Chronik", and the biography of his predecessor as mayor, Franz Wessel. Sastrow's autobiography is an important record of events such as the confrontation between Philip I, landgrave of Hesse and emperor Charles V that led to Philip's imprisonment. The many incorporated legal documents are important sources for the history of the Empire, especially for the diet of Augsburg in 1547-48 and the Augsburg Interim of 1548. This three volume edition by Gottlieb Mohnike is still the most complete edition published

        The works of Lord Byron

      Paris: Printed for Baudry..., 1823. 12 volumes in six. With half-titles to each odd numbered volume. [Bound uniformly with:] MEDWIN, Thomas. Journal of the conversations of Lord Byron, noted during a residence with his lordship at pisa, in the years 1821 and 1822. In two volumes. Paris. Published by L. Baudry..., 1825. Two volumes bound in one. Finely bound in contemporary French calf by Hering (of Paris?), signed in gilt to foot of the spine, first volume, spines richly tooled and boards ruled in gilt, further blind border to boards. Marbled endpapers, A.E.G. Very lightly faded to spines, small patch of insect-damage to joint at base of spine of the fifth volume, else a fine set. Bookseller's label 'Galerie de Bossange Pere' to FEP. Together seven exquisitely bound regency volumes combining the works of poet sufficiently popular on the continent to warrant English publication in Paris alongside the contemporary writer, biographer and friend of the Romantics Thomas Medwin's Journal of conversations (first printed London, 1824). Despite contemporary Parisian almanacks refering to J. Hering as a French and English bookbinder, there is little evidence that this Hering, who has signed his name in the customary French manner at the base of the spine on the first volume of this set, is in any way connected with the illustrious West End bindery, despite Seymour de Ricci including a late eighteenth-century volume signed 'Rel. Hering' in his study English Fine Bindings (New York, 1935). . First Baudry edition. 12mo.
