        Notes During a Visit to Egypt, Nubia, the Oasis, Mount Sinai and Jerusalem

      London: John Murray, 1823. "BOOLAC - day-break, and I am still two miles distant from the capital of Egypt, "The Grand Cairo." Let me have a hackney coach: "Si Signore, Signore si," resounded from a crowd of Facchini, and donkies were immediately brought. Is there nothing else to be had? yes, camels, but neither without some trouble. The camelliers and asiniers commence fighting for the base lucre of a few paras, half farthings - they fight so well for these that they deserve encouragement. At length, mid the show of camels and donkies, of the two evils I choose the least." A highly readable and informative account. x, 340pp with two large folding plates, one being Jerusalem from the Cave of the Apostles on the Mount of Olives, the other Mount Sinai Convent. Rebound in recent times in three quarter calf with marbled boards.. First Edition. Three-Quarter Calf. Very Good. 215x135mm.

        De las Prisiones consideradas en su actual estado y según las reformas que deben experimentar con respecto a la Higiene, a la Moral y a la Economía Política. Obra escrita en francés y traducida por L.

      Cádiz, imprenta de la Casa de Socorro, 1823. - Petit in-4. 1f. IV. 100pp. Demi-veau postérieur (Domenech). Première Edition Espagnole de cet important ouvrage du statisticien et philanthrope français Louis René Villermé (1782-1863), qui fut l'un des grands précurseurs de la sociologie moderne. "Les travaux de Villermé sont reconnus comme des étapes très importantes du développement de la démographie et de la statistique. Une première étude sur les conditions de vie des prisonniers (1820), laquelle s'insérait dans un projet de réforme du régime pénitentiaire, rend Villermé célèbre. Il entreprend ensuite des études comparées de la mortalité et de la mortalité infantile suivant les milieux sociaux, desquelles il ressort que la condition ouvrière dans les villes entraîne une mortalité très supérieure à la moyenne" (Encyclopædia Universalis). La traduction en espagnol de cet ouvrage précurseur de Villermé s'inscrit dans le cadre du mouvement d'idées libérales qui avaient conduit à la promulgation de la première Constitution Espagnole à Cádiz en 1812; l'année 1823, date de publication du présent ouvrage, marquait le renversement du régime et le retour de l'absolutisme. Déchirure sans manque au feuillet J. Quelques rousseurs éparses.

        NEW YORK FROM HEIGHTS NEAR BROOKLYN. [with:] NEW YORK FROM WEEHAWK

      New York, 1823. Two large folio aquatint engravings, each 52 x 68cm. Both images have been professionally cleaned and backed, a few minor surface abrasions, considerable toning, but decent copies of the first states of these rare views. Archivally matted, protected with Mylar sheets. William Guy Wall published his two views of New York in the summer of 1823. "They are two of the most beautiful views we have of New York City in the early nineteenth century" - Deak. The Brooklyn view, taken from Brooklyn heights, shows the growing city across the East River. Wall took great care to accurately render the buildings on the opposite shore, observable in great detail. The view from Weehawk reverses the view, looking at the west side of town along the Hudson. "Both views are exceedingly well-balanced, and both retain an eighteenth- century elegance in the clarity and fluid handling of the topographic projection..." - Deak. The plates were engraved by John Hill, and are here present in their first states. Stokes asserts that the Brooklyn view is considerably rarer than the one from Weehawk.

        Narrative of a Journey to the Shores of the Polar Sea in the Years 1819, 20, 21, and 22

      John Murray, London 1823 - Thick Quarto. First issue with the errata slip mounted to page 768. xvi, 768, Illustrated with 31 plates of which 11 are in color (9 in aquatint) and with four plates of plants (1 in color) preceeding four large folding maps all dated March 1823, with an appedix which Sabin calls "valuable" in its contribution to the knowlege of the natural history of the area.

Bound in full contemporary calf, board edges ruled in gilt and blind, recked to style retaining original endpapers and beautifully executed, raised bands gilt, black morocco spine label gilt, all edges marbled with matching endpapers. Minor wear to corners. this book narrates the disastrous expedition undertaken by Naval officer and Arctic explorer Sir John Franklin up the Coppermine River in North America. Franklin (1786-1847) and nineteen others set out in 1819, initially with guides from the Hudson Bay Company until the journey continued overland, when they relied on Native Americans as guides. The party ran short of supplies and, lacking adequate knowledge for survival, were reduced to eating lichens. One of the party was suspected of eating the bodies of the nine men who had died of exposure and starvation, and two more were killed in a subsequent skirmish. Franklin undertook a second, more successful Arctic journey before setting out on his final expedition of 1845, which ended in tragedy and enduring mystery. (Cambridge) From the library of John Keate D.D. (1773 - March 5, 1852) who was an English schoolmaster. He was educated at Eton and Kings College, Cambridge, where he had a brilliant career as a scholar; taking holy orders, he became an assistant master at Eton College and in 1809 he was elected headmaster. The discipline of the school was very unsatisfactory to Dr Keate who took stern measures to improve it. His partiality for the birch became a by-word, but he succeeded in restoring order and strengthening the weakened authority of the masters. Keate was made a canon of Windsor in 1820. He died at Hartley Westpall, Hampshire, of which parish he had been rector since 1824. Also from the library o Mary Patterson Davidson with her bookplate. Franklin's narrtive includes descriptioons of the country the native Indians, the murder of Robert Hood, and his great disappointment in failing to find a northwest passage.

        OBSERVATIONS UPON THE FLORIDAS

      New York: Published by E. Bliss & E. White, 1823. Half title. Half calf and marbled boards, leather label. Errata leaf lightly stained. Light, scattered foxing. A very good, wide-margined copy. One of two issues of the first edition, without apparent priority. The other issue numbers only 197 pages, and this longer issue seems to be the scarcer of the two. This is one of the first detailed accounts of Florida published in the United States after the acquisition of the territory from Spain the preceding year. Vignoles made several extensive trips in Florida, and describes the geography, climate, soil, Indian tribes, and British and Spanish settlements and activities. Also included is a printing of the Adams-Onìs Treaty by which the Floridas were sold to the United States. Vignoles produced a map of Florida as well, but it was sold separately from the book, and does not normally appear with it. HOWES V97, "aa." SERVIES 1179. SABIN 99608. AMERICAN IMPRINTS 14782.

        Cartas de un americano sobre las ventajas de los gobiernos republicanos federativos.

      During his exile and residence in Philadelphia Vicente Rocafuerte, a man prominent in the political affairs of Mexico and Ecuador, wrote these letters to explain to Spanish America the American federalist system of government. The spur for writing was his having read Juan Egaña's "Del federalismo y de la anarquia" (Santiago de Chile: Imprenta nacional, Abril de 1823). In one letter he compares and contrasts article by article the U.S., Mexican, and Guatemalan constitutions. Provenance: Alberto Pareño's copy with his initials on the spine of the book.

        Liber amoris: Or, the New Pygmalion.

      Printed for John Hunt 1823 - FIRST EDITION, with engraved title-page, ink with a greenish tint, with a vignette portrait of Sarah Walker after Hazlitt's drawing, some foxing, pp. [iv], 192, 8vo, uncut in the original pink boards, spine of drab paper, printed label partly defective, rubbed, and corners worn, sound. Keynes calls the pink boards the first binding: the label he calls for is longitudinal, but here we have the later issue label. 'In the end Hazlitt could only purge himself of the abortive affair by writing a book about it, Liber amoris ('Book of love'), published in May 1823. It consisted of dialogues between "W" and "S" written in a style of extreme sensibility, together with edited versions of Hazlitt's own letters to his friends about his feelings for Sarah. Emotionally raw, at times vulgar and embarrassing, Liber amoris played into the hands of his enemies in the right-wing press. Though published anonymously, it was quickly identified as Hazlitt's and he was made a laughing-stock for his infatuation with "the tailor's daughter"' (ODNB). (Keynes 67)

The whole edition was to have been limited to no more than 335 copies, but in the end only 227 copies were subscribed for and this can be stated with certainty as being the actual number produced as Savage deliberately destroyed the blocks in order to ensure that no more copies could be printed. The edition was issued in two forms: 127 copies in quarto (the Abbey copy is 10 1/8 inches tall) at 5 guineas and 100 copies on large paper, as here, at 10 guineas. The underlying reason for the work is quite prosaic: Savage wished to present his new oil-free printing ink in a form which allowed for its full potential to be demonstrated. The result is a masterpiece of early colour printing. "Savage's magnum opus, which was announced in 1815, appeared in parts between 1818 and 1823. It is both a highly idiosyncratic volume and a notable landmark in the history of color printing from wood, anticipating Baxter by about ten years" (Ray, The Illustrator and the Book in England ). The technical aspects of the work are truly extraordinary: one highlight amongst many is a colour print, which Burch notes is printed from twenty-nine separate blocks, and which therefore qualifies as "the most complicated print ever printed in colours from wood blocks."

        Narrative of a Journey to the Shores of the Polar Sea in the Years 1819, 20, 21, and 22

      London: John Murray, 1823. First Edition. Thick Quarto. First issue with the errata slip mounted to page 768. xvi, 768, Illustrated with 31 plates of which 11 are in color (9 in aquatint) and with four plates of plants (1 in color) preceeding four large folding maps all dated March 1823, with an appedix which Sabin calls "valuable" in its contribution to the knowlege of the natural history of the area. Light off-setting or scattered foxing from plates facing text, sall damp stain to uppr margin of title page. Bound in full contemporary calf, board edges ruled in gilt and blind, recked to style retaining original endpapers and beautifully executed, raised bands gilt, black morocco spine label gilt, all edges marbled with matching endpapers. Minor wear to corners. this book narrates the disastrous expedition undertaken by Naval officer and Arctic explorer Sir John Franklin up the Coppermine River in North America. Franklin (1786-1847) and nineteen others set out in 1819, initially with guides from the Hudson Bay Company until the journey continued overland, when they relied on Native Americans as guides. The party ran short of supplies and, lacking adequate knowledge for survival, were reduced to eating lichens. One of the party was suspected of eating the bodies of the nine men who had died of exposure and starvation, and two more were killed in a subsequent skirmish. Franklin undertook a second, more successful Arctic journey before setting out on his final expedition of 1845, which ended in tragedy and enduring mystery. (Cambridge) From the library of John Keate D.D. (1773 - March 5, 1852) who was an English schoolmaster. He was educated at Eton and Kings College, Cambridge, where he had a brilliant career as a scholar; taking holy orders, he became an assistant master at Eton College and in 1809 he was elected headmaster. The discipline of the school was very unsatisfactory to Dr Keate who took stern measures to improve it. His partiality for the birch became a by-word, but he succeeded in restoring order and strengthening the weakened authority of the masters. Keate was made a canon of Windsor in 1820. He died at Hartley Westpall, Hampshire, of which parish he had been rector since 1824. Also from the library o Mary Patterson Davidson with her bookplate. Franklin's narrtive includes descriptioons of the country the native Indians, the murder of Robert Hood, and his great disappointment in failing to find a northwest passage.

Offprint from Archives générales de médecine 2 (1823). [2], 50pp. 201 x 122 mm. Modern quarter morocco, marbled boards. Fine copy. First Edition, Offprint Issue of Flourens’ first paper on cerebral function. In an effort to refute Gall’s theory of cerebral localization, Flourens carried out a famous series of experiments on pigeons, in which he selectively removed either the cerebral lobes or the cerebellum in order to demonstrate their roles in brain physiology. The pigeons deprived of their cerebral lobes retained their sense of equilibrium, but lost all sense of volition and showed no sensory awareness of their surroundings; in contrast, those deprived of their cerebellums lost all ability to coordinate their muscular motions, but retained their ability to initiate movement and process sensory information. Flourens concluded from these experiments that the cerebral lobes were the seat of intelligence and perception, while the faculty of muscular coordination resided in the cerebellum; however, he insisted that the entire brain acted as a whole with respect to each of its functions.

        Wonders! Descriptive of Some of the Most Remarkable of Nature and Art

      London: Printed for J. Harris and Son, Corner of St. Paul's Church-yard, 1823. Early printing of this installment in publisher John Harris's popular series of brightly colored chapbooks for children, first published in 1821, number 24 in his Cabinet of Amusement and Instruction. Sixteen wonders of the world, natural and manmade, are depicted in hand-colored copper engravings and described in verse. Subjects include the Pyramids, the Great Wall of China, Cleopatra's Needle, the Colossus at Rhodes, and Stonehenge: "So this, Sir, is Stonehenge, on Salisbury plain. / The famous Druidical ancient remain. / Which certainly claims ev'ry trav'ller's attention. / Tho' why it was rais'd is not easy to mention." "Very often the text of [Harris's] picture books shows every sign of having been written by untalented hack writers, but the engravings, or woodcuts, and their colouring are of a higher standard than those of most of his contemporaries. The colouring, as is well known, was usually done by a group of children, each with a pan of one coloured paint, who filled in the black-and-white outlines on the sheets as they were passed around the table" (Moon, John Harris's Books for Youth). A near-fine copy. Octavo chapbook, original yellow printed wraps, illustrated with sixteen hand-colored engravings. Publisher's advertisements bound at rear. Gift inscription on verso of front wrapper: "Samuel Whitehouse / with Papa's & Mama's best love." Lightest rubbing to wrappers.

Colors bright and fresh, great detail, 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. With a numerical list under "Civil Divisions and Population" of 'Whites, Free blacks, Slaves, All others' by county. 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. Howes C133.

        De las Prisiones consideradas en su actual estado y según las reformas que deben experimentar con respecto a la Higiene, a la Moral y a la Economía Política. Obra escrita en francés y traducida por L.

      Cádiz, imprenta de la Casa de Socorro, 1823. - Petit in-4. 1f. IV. 100pp. Demi-veau postérieur (Domenech). Première Edition Espagnole de cet important ouvrage du statisticien et philanthrope français Louis René Villermé (1782-1863), qui fut l'un des grands précurseurs de la sociologie moderne. "Les travaux de Villermé sont reconnus comme des étapes très importantes du développement de la démographie et de la statistique. Une première étude sur les conditions de vie des prisonniers (1820), laquelle s'insérait dans un projet de réforme du régime pénitentiaire, rend Villermé célèbre. Il entreprend ensuite des études comparées de la mortalité et de la mortalité infantile suivant les milieux sociaux, desquelles il ressort que la condition ouvrière dans les villes entraîne une mortalité très supérieure à la moyenne" (Encyclopædia Universalis). La traduction en espagnol de cet ouvrage précurseur de Villermé s'inscrit dans le cadre du mouvement d'idées libérales qui avaient conduit à la promulgation de la première Constitution Espagnole à Cádiz en 1812; l'année 1823, date de publication du présent ouvrage, marquait le renversement du régime et le retour de l'absolutisme.

        El Nuevo Testamento de nuestro señor Jesu Cristo, traducido de la Biblia Vulgata Latina.

      Nueva York: Estereotipa por Elihu White a costa de la Sociedad Americana de la Biblia 12mo (18 cm, 7"). 376 pp.. 1823 This is an early reprint (the 7th edition, the 5th through 9th editions all appearing in 1823) of the 1819 edition of the New Testament in Spanish published by the American Bible Society, which was the first printing in Spanish of any portion of the Bible in the New World. To avoid controversy, and to appeal to Catholics, a translation approved for use in the Catholic Church was employed. This resulted in some criticism from the ABS's Protestant base, but proved a successful strategy to get the Scriptures into the hands of Spanish speakers in the newly independent nations south of the U.S. Contemporary sheep, spine with gilt rules and tiny remnant of black leather title label; some rubbing and abrasions, spine leather with fine cracks. Waterstaining, sometimes nearly invisible, other times noticeable; scattered foxing and browning throughout. => A solid, sound copy of a text that was a bit of a landmark for the ABS.

        The Naval History of Great Britain from the year MDCCLXXXIII to MDCCCXII - Five Volumes

      C Rice, Mount Street, Berkeley Square, London. 1823. F 1st Edition. H Hardcover. Good. No Jacket Full set complete. A RARE FULL SET of the FIRST EDITION of this very popular Naval History of Great Britain. Fully leather bound in green morocco. Stamped gilt decoration. The spine has four ridges. There are decoration and titling on alternate panels. The spines are calm, dignified. The entire set is very clubbable, charming and handsome. Please note that a plate of the Spanish Main is missing from volume five (although there is no evidence of removal). This series was most popular and reprinted many times: Brenton's history was personal (he was an experienced sailor and navy man), at times controversial. All have marbled front and end papers. All have an ex-libris plate for Francis Dick (of the old Scots family). There are stamps also indicating ownership of the 'Stonehouse Reading Room'. The history covers one of the most thrilling and important in European and British history and it is a compulsive read - this set gives the read ample enjoyment. Volume 1 (printer: J F Dove, St John's Square: 1823). The boards are sound with some scuffing, wear and marks to the edges and faces. These are benign. The spine has shelving and handling wear to the body, head and foot. Inside, the frontispages have some damp stains at the spine corners - but these do not affect the text. The pages - as with the other volumes - have printer markings at the bottom. The pages are clear, confident and eager. Covers: the loss of American colonies, the state of French, Spanish and British navies at the end of the American war, Holy Roman Empire ambitions, Bligh and the Mutiny, the death of Emperor Joseph and Sweden's Gustavus, Cornwallis, Indian Ocean, Egypt, the Cape, Laval. Vol. 2: a contented, comfortable copy. The boards have some markings, some wear to the edges and spine. But these are mild. The boards are sound and sure. The pages are firm, clean, clear and certain. Covers: West Indies action, Bonaparte's star soars, St Helena to attack the Cape!, France and America, Nelson is on the scene, Battle of the Nile. Volume 3: (1824). The boards are gallant with wear to the board-faces, corners and spine. The back board has been stained by damp at its bottom spine edge. There are some very mild consequent damp marks to the very final pages at the binding edge. The contents are mild and generous. Brenton makes amends in his preface. Cockburn, Napoleon, improvements to the Navy, French treatment of prisoners, invasion threat!, Nelson to the rescue, imperial woes in the Americas, West Indies and the Cape of Good Hope. Volume 4 (1825). There are scatterings of age marks within. The boards are masculine. There is some wear to the corners and spine. The boards are rubbed and lightly marked. They are serene. France the enemy1, India, European affairs, Cochrane, the action moves to all of the Americas, Danish war, a Bernadotte elected to the throne of Sweden, George III's illness. Volume five and Brenton brings his labours to an end. An aged copy. The boards beam genially with some marks and wear, scuffing and rubbing. The guttering along the reverse title page is cracked. Nonetheless the binding is firm and the pages are tight. The pages are competent and diligent and mild-mannered. They have some age marks. The Americans become disagreeable and plan horrid things, Wellington, Napoleon sees Elba and escapes and thus sees St Helena instead, the death of the King!, Bonaparte sees the pearly gates as does Queen Caroline, the British become adventurous in the time of peace. A most pleasant set for reference, reading and reception. Oh! the happy owner! fk

Tape residue of verso of sheet. Skillfully mended tear in center of image. Mended tear in top section of image. Image size:15 x 23 5/8 inches. A charming aquatint depicting George IV's entrance into Dublin on his coronation tour. Born into a family of talented artists, the painter, engraver, and publisher Robert Havell worked in his family's London-based engraving firm for several years with his father, the topographical and architectural engraver and publisher, Daniel Havell, and his cousin, the painter William Havell. With his son, he later established a successful business on Oxford Street that produced a number of illustrations for various travel and topographical publications as well as several series of topographical and architectural aquatint engravings including "Picturesque Views on the River Thames" (1812) and "Views of the Public Buildings and Bridges in London and its Environs" (1820-1). The father-son partnership lasted until 1828, at which time Robert Jr. emigrated to America. George IV's coronation took place in Westminster Abbey in 1821 and will always be remembered for the scandalous attempt of the King's disgraced Queen to force her way into the ceremony, from which she had been barred, and be crowned. The King's discomfort was permanently relieved that August, when she died. Immediately after her death, George IV began a Royal tour, starting in Ireland; where he landed at Dunleary, a port which lies at the southern extremity of Dublin bay, whence he traveled by land to Dublin. In honor of the visit, Dunleary was immediately renamed Kingstown. This beautiful print is one of a number of aquatints executed by the Havells that depicts George IV's coronation tour. George IV is shown amidst an excited crowd who clamour for a view of the new King. This rare print is a fine example of the Havells superior work. Dictionary of National Biography.
