      Nashville, (TN): Printed by George Wilson, 1823. 8vo. viii, 390, liv pp. half-title; errata leaf. Contemporary calf (rubbed), leather spine label; front and rear blank endpapers partly torn away; some age toning to text, but a solid copy, as good as we have seen. First edition. Howes H-359 ("b"): "Of great value on the pre-Caucasian period, its people, and antiquities." Sabin 31085: "A volume of much rarity. The author has brought together a large number of curious facts, relating to the origin and character of the natives of his State, prior to the settlement by the whites. He does not favor the hypothesis of great antiquity in the Indian nations of America, but describes with great care the relics of the race which once inhabited this territory." American Imprints 12800. Streeter sale 1659. Siebert sale 371: "[Haywood] demonstratyes particular insight into the history and culture of the Natchez, Cherokees, and Chickasaws." Allen Tennessee Imprints 562. Allen Some Tennessee Rarities 26: "One of the rarest Southern histories." Horn Twenty Tennessee Books 4: "Generally regarded as the scarcest, most desirable, and most valuable of all Tennessee books. What [Haywood] wrote was based largely on his own observations and on what he was able to learn from personal interviews with old inhabitants … justly regarded as the foundation work in Tennessee history." McMurtrie Early Printing in Tennessee 204. RARE. Although fairly widely held in institutional conditions, this book appears on the market infrequently; the Streeter and Siebert copies are the only ones to appear at auction in the past thirty years (ABPC, 1976-2005).

      Paris, Impr. Lithogr. de Lasteyrie / de Brégaut, (1823-1826). Questa straordinaria opera di anatomia è composta da: - un vol. di testo in folio (mm. 510x330), mz. pelle mod. con ang., dorso a cordoni con tit. oro: ?"Explication des planches anatomiques du corps humain.. par le Docteur F. Antonmarchi?", pp. (6),VII, V-VIII,288. - una raccolta di tavole in folio max. (mm. 635x410) contenuta in un solido astuccio (spacchi ai bordi) in mz. pelle mod. con legacci, dorso a cordoni con tit. oro. Come da dettagliata descriz. nel vol. di testo, le tavole - tutte a doppia pag. - sono così ripartite: 48 sono in chiaroscuro e 35 sono ripetute al tratto, ciasc. con una o più figure, disegnate da Pedretti e pregevolmente litografate; l?'importante collezione è introdotta da un frontespizio inquadrato in cornice floreale (sempre a doppia pag.). "Edizione originale", molto rara trovarla completa. ?"Antonmarchi served as personal physician to Napoleon at St. Helena and achieved a certain editorial notoriety as the editor of Paolo Mascagni?'s posthumous "Prodromo della grande anatomia". Upon termination of his obligations with Mascagni?'s heirs, he seems to have considered the rights his own and republished the plates in the present edition, with some modifications, under his own name - without denying their provenance. He nevertheless failed to cite Mascagni on the title page and this was poorly received by the medical community. The work was conceived so that the entire human body might be represented (in life size) by joining three of the plates together. This may be achieved a number of times to depict the complete skeleton, the blood vessels, the muscles (front and back) and the viscera. Further detailed plates are dedicated to the brain, the heart, the lymphatic system, etc.?". Cfr. Choulant ?"History and bibliography of anatomic illustration?", pp. 319-320 che cita erroneam. 45 + 45 tavv. - Hirsch,I, p. 154-55 con 83 tavv. come il ns. esemplare.

Engraved title, portrait, and 30 engraved plates, India Proofs tipped in. xvi, [16], 354, [4] pp. 1 vols. 4to (11 x 7-1/2 inches). Bound in three quarters morocco, and marbled boards, t.e.g. Bound by J. Larkins. Fine. First Edition, Large Paper, with errata and List of Subscribers. Engraved title, portrait, and 30 engraved plates, India Proofs tipped in. xvi, [16], 354, [4] pp. 1 vols. 4to (11 x 7-1/2 inches). The First Steel-Engraved Plate?, LARGE PAPER. The plate on page 288, "Silent the guest surveyed the crowd", engraved by Charles Warren, the leading protagonist of steel-engraving at this time, is dated 1822, and has traditionally been considered to be the first steel-engraved book illustration. Basil Hunnisett, in Steel Engraved Book Illustrations in England, expresses doubts as to whether it actually was engraved on steel, suggesting that the first may be Warren's engraving of Adam and Eve for an 1822 edition of Paradise Lost. Whatever the case may be, Coxe's poem--a paean to the pleasures of rural pastimes, especially sporting amusements--is beautifully illustrated in this sumptous Ackermann production. Berry and Poole, in Annals of Printing, dates the first steel engravings at 1823, but does not cite a specific book. The book has an illustration by Constable, one of the first artists lending their work to this new media. Hunnisett, Dictionary of British Steel Engravers, p. 138

The perusal of Madame de La Roche-Jaquelin's interesting work on the Vendean war, first gave me the idea of visiting the country called le Bocage, the theatre of so many events, and sufferings of the brave royalists; and, as the province of le Perche, in which is situated the ancient convent of La Trappe, was in my route to Bretagne, I resolved to make an excursion there, in order to satisfy myself of the truth of those austerities which I had read of in the Memoirs of the Count de Comminge…" (Chapter 1).Tooley, 212; Abbey, Travel, 91; Martin Hardie, p. 313; Prideaux, p.335 (1818 edition).

        ELIA

      1823. [in original boards] Essays which have appeared under that signature in the London Magazine. London: Printed for Taylor and Hessey, 1823. 6 pp undated ads. Original drab paper-covered boards. First Edition of this collection of 28 essays that were hugely popular during the Nineteenth Century; their popularity was due largely to Lamb's personal and conversational tone, uncommon at that time. After this collection was published, Lamb continued to write further essays for London Magazine (which was issued by Taylor & Hessey); despite Taylor & Hessey's efforts to prevent it, it was Edward Moxon who would publish Second Essays of Elia in 1833.~This copy has the title page in the second state, with two addresses (93 Fleet Street and 13 Waterloo Place) in the publisher's imprint.~This copy, complete with the half-title and the three leaves of undated T&H ads, is still in the original drab paper-covered boards (if there ever was a spine label, it is now absent). There is some general rubbing at the extremities but the volume remains tight, with its original endpapers intact. ELIA is not all that uncommon a book -- but almost all copies seen today have been rebound in leather at some point over their almost-200-year existence. Roff pp 149-155. In an open-back card slipcase.

        Scraps from the Sketch Book of Henry Alken, engraved by himself

      London: Thomas M'Lean, 1823. - In The Original Seven PartsWith Forty-Two Hand-Colored PlatesALKEN, Henry. Scraps From the Sketch Book of Henry Alken, Engraved by Himself, Containing Forty-Two Coloured Plates. London: Thomas M'Lean, 1823. First edition in the seven original parts. Oblong folio (10 1/8 x 14 1/4 inches; 257 x 363 mm.). Title leaf (verso blank), and forty-two hand-colored engraved plates heightened with gum arabic, twelve with multiple images. Plates watermarked "J. Whatman 1821 & 1822".Original printed wrappers, front covers printed with title, imprint, date and price of ‘twelve shillings each part’, lower covers with various advertisements. Part numbers added to covers in a contemporary hand. Lower cover of part three expertly and almost invisibly strengthened at spine, otherwise a totally original and untouched set.Chemised in a full maroon morocco slipcase, covers decoratively ruled in gilt, spine with five raised bands decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, decorative gilt board-edges. Small portion of lower edge of slipcase missing. With the engraved bookplate of Maxine and Joel Spitz on inside of front wrapper of part one.A bright, clean, and spectacular copy of an extremely scarce album in the original parts by Henry Alken. We have never seen nor heard of another copy in the original parts.Provenance: Purchased from the De Peyster Sale, American Art, New York, 15 March 1932. According to Schwerdt there was an uncolored edition of 1821. While Siltzer notes an Alken Sketch Book of 1820 (34 plates), and the Scraps. edition of 1822 (assumedly mistaken for 1823). It is not in found in Tooley or Abbey in any edition.The "Scraps" include equestrian, hunting, dog, bowling scenes, etc. In short, each print features a sporting tableau. Parts six and seven depict Turkish and English cavalry. The earlier parts show shooting, a wayside inn, dogs fighting, a seriously angry bull, coaching, hunting, and horse-racing scenes. Of Alken, Siltzer wrote, "It took but a short time for the leading art publishers of London to recognize his genius and to discover that they had 'struck a reef' of both artistic and financial value, and the well-known firms of Thomas M'Lean, S. and J. Fuller, and Rudolph Ackermann were not slow to reaping full benefit. It appears that Alken himself occasionally engraved plates, and thus added to the facility of production."Schwerdt I, p. 21. Cf.

        REMARKS ON THE INTERNAL EVIDENCE FOR THE TRUTH OF REVEALED RELIGION

      Printed for Waugh & Innes, Edinburgh 1823 - 182 x 107 mm (7 1/4 x 4 1/4"). 1 p.l., 210 pp., [1] leaf (ads). Sixth Edition. EXCELLENT CONTEMPORARY EMERALD GREEN STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, ELABORATELY GILT, covers framed by plain and decorative rolls in gilt and blind, raised bands, spine panels with intricate gilt floral and other tools, gilt-rolled turn-ins, all edges gilt. WITH AN UNUSUALLY PLEASING FORE-EDGE PAINTING OF ELY CATHEDRAL. Housed in a very fine later fleece-lined black morocco pull-off case by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Recto of front free endpaper with the heavily gilt morocco bookplate of Lucy Smith Battson; verso with neat inked inscription in a 19th century hand: "Ely Cathedral / Cambridge." Rear free endpaper with the ticket of Los Angeles department store J. W. Robinson Co. Inoffensive soiling to covers, light offsetting in the bed of the text, but the binding lustrous and with only trivial wear, and clean and fresh internally--a very pretty book in pleasing condition. This is an attractive binding highlighted by a colorful and animated fore-edge painting depicting Ely Cathedral in Cambridgeshire. The painting is finely composed, richly detailed, and skillfully executed. The cathedral is framed by a verdant landscape in the foreground featuring a small herd of stout cows at left, two male figures at center trodding a path toward the cathedral, and a horse-drawn cart with driver and aide travelling the same path away from Ely. Two well-dressed young women at right gaze at the Medieval church, and the tableau is flanked by a copses of trees, the whole beneath a late afternoon deep azure sky with billowing clouds. It is unusual to see so many figures and such activity within a fore-edge tableau, particularly this well defined--the detail in the architecture and especially the trees is particularly impressive. The artist is clearly the so-called "Dover Painter," the name given by Jeff Weber to the artist who executed very high quality painted fore edges in the 1920s and 1930s. He did work for the famous London bookseller Marks & Company, for Dawson's Bookshop in Los Angeles, and for J. W. Robinson Company, the Los Angeles department store. Estelle Doheny (1875-1958), whose library comprised one of the great collections of the 20th century, bought actively from Dawson's, and Weber estimates that approximately half of the very considerable number of especially fine fore-edge paintings in the Doheny collection in Camarillo, California, were done by the Dover Painter. An important book (and art) collector, this book's prior owner, Lucy Smith [Doheny] Battson (1893-1993), was Estelle's daughter-in-law. Written by the lawyer and lay theologian Erskine (1788-1870) at a time of spiritual doubt, these "Remarks" argue the truth of Christianity based on the moral and spiritual needs of mankind. Reflecting a moderate Calvinism, the book was the first of a half dozen works through which our author exerted considerable influence in the world of 19th century British theology.

        Darby's Edition of Brookes' Universal Gazetteer.

      Philadelphia: Bennett & Walton, 1823. - BROOKES, Richard (1721–1763) - DARBY, William (1775-1854). Darby's Edition of Brookes' Universal Gazetteer; or, a New Geographical Dictionary: containing a description of the Empires, Kingdoms, States, Provinces, Cities, Towns, Forts, Seas, Harbours, Rivers, Lakes, Mountains, Capes, &c. in the Known world; with the Government, Customs, and Manners, of the Inhabitants; The Extent, Boundaries, and Natural Productions of each Country; and the Trade, manufactures, and Curiosities of the Cities and Towns. To Which are Added, The Constitutions of the Respective States. Philadelphia: Published by Bennett & Walton, 1823. 8vo., (8 4/8 x 5 inches). Half-title (browned and a bit spotted throughout). Fine folding engraved frontispiece "A Map of the United States, of America" by Tanner, with original hand-colour in full (4-inch tear from the mount). Contemporary polished mottled American calf, the spine in five compartments, with four raised bands, red morocco lettering-piece in the second (extremities a bit worn). Provenance: with the near contemporary ownership inscription of Benjamin Pinnock on the half-title. Stated third American edition "with ample additions and improvements". "The original work, from which the present volume has been in part compiles, has long held a respectable rank among elementary treatises on geography. Except, on the American articles; I have deviated as little as possible from the London edition of 1819, from which, most of the articles except those of America, have been taken. Very few American articles, stand in the present as they did in any previous edition. This is the first Geographical Dictionary, in which a detailed and regular description of the counties of the United States has been inserted. In the former editions of Brookes, and in several other similar productions, few, comparatively of the United States counties, were so described, as to be easily found on a map from the description." (pages v and vi of the "Preface"). William Darby is "unquestionably the "father of Louisiana geography". Born in Pennsylvania in 1775, Darby soon moved to Ohio where he grew up, before establishing himself as a planter in Natchez in 1799. Financial ruin resulting from a fire in 1804 caused him to seek employment as a deputy surveyor with the U. S. General Land Office. It was in this position that Darby honed his skills as a surveyor and cartographer, traveling many miles on foot, horseback and by boat, surveying and meticulously recording geographic observations. These surveys and observations would be brought together in 1816 in his monumental map and the accompanying book A Geographical Description of the State of Louisiana. A Map of the State of Louisiana and Part of the Mississippi Territory., is the finest cartographic rendering of the area up to 1816. It was published by John Melish of Philadelphia, and Melish soon after used Darby’s geographic rendering in his famous United States map, also published in 1816. Melish and Darby feuded long after because of the notoriety gained by Melish and his lack of acknowledgment of Darby’s contribution. Darby went on to publish more than fifteen volumes of geography and history and spent his later life writing and lecturing about the West" (C.A.R.T.E. Museum online). Brookes, physician and author, "has left scant evidence of his life, except numerous compilations and translations on medicine, surgery, natural history, and geography, most of which went through several editions. He was at one time a rural practitioner in Surrey, and at some time before 1762 he travelled in both America and Africa. He was an industrious compiler, especially from the works of continental writers, and his General Gazeteer (1762) filled a gap in the market" (G. T. Bettany, rev. Claire L. Nutt for DNB).

        (Vorlagen für Landschaft-Zeichner. 1. Heft [all published]).

      [Munich, 1823].. Folio (256 x 319 mm). Lithographed throughout. 20 crayon litho plates by Wagenbauer with his initials at foot (numbered 1-20). Contemp. green marbled boards; spine with ink lettered paper label.. Proof plates of Wagenbauer's scarce last landscape drawing book, showing tree studies, individual trees in a landscape setting, and culminating in landscape views with cottages or ruins, shepherds and animals. All the plates here are printed on the verso of two different Rehberg lithos after Raphael (published Munich 1824). A title-page was never issued; the title was printed on the wrappers only. - Wagenbauer (1775-1829) was court painter to Maximilian of Bavaria who liked to give his paintings as presents. From 1815 Wagenbauer was director of the Munich picture gallery. He was also one of the earliest artists to experiment with lithography: he issued four drawing books (1805, 1816, 1817 and 1823); two infuriatingly with identical titles but containing different lithos (cf. Winkler). - Some light spotting, but fine. - Winkler, Frühzeit der deutschen Lithographie, 897, 60/61 (1-20). COPAC does not have any Wagenbauer drawing books. KVK only locates the Frankfurt copy in Germany. Not in OCLC (locates only 4 copies of the 1810 drawing book: Getty, NYPL, Harvard, and Heidelberg [Germany]).

        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.

Full leather binding with red spine label and simple gilt spine rules. Previous owner's name inked on front flyleaf. First two initials on second blank flyleaf, and all three initials inked at top of title page. Rear blank endpaper torn. First few pages loose. Light foxing and toning throughout. Full leather. "'View of the Hebrews' is an 1823 book written by Ethan Smith, a United States Congregationalist minister, who argued that Native Americans were descended from the Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. This was a relatively common view during the early nineteenth century, as most Europeans and Americans had a view of history as biblical. Numerous commentators on Mormon history, from LDS Church general authority B. H. Roberts to Fawn M. Brodie, biographer of Joseph Smith, have noted similarities in the content of 'View of the Hebrews' and the 'Book of Mormon', which was first published in 1830, seven years after Ethan Smith's book." (wikipedia) First published in 1823, there is also a substantially enlarged 1825 edition. The 2011 Swann Galleries auction listing noted "No other copies of the first edition found at auction since 1918; [and] none of any edition known since 1983." While we're aware of at least one other auction, it is nonetheless scarce even though a few of each edition have appeared in recent years in the trade as the search for rarities intensifies. A nice addition to any collection related to American Indian or Mormon history. Pilling 3655, Sabin 82538.

Scraps From the Sketch Book of Henry Alken, Engraved by Himself, Containing Forty-Two Coloured Plates. London: Thomas M'Lean, 1823. First edition in the seven original parts. Oblong folio (10 1/8 x 14 1/4 inches; 257 x 363 mm.). Title leaf (verso blank), and forty-two hand-colored engraved plates heightened with gum arabic, twelve with multiple images. Plates watermarked "J. Whatman 1821 & 1822".Original printed wrappers, front covers printed with title, imprint, date and price of ?'twelve shillings each part?', lower covers with various advertisements. Part numbers added to covers in a contemporary hand. Lower cover of part three expertly and almost invisibly strengthened at spine, otherwise a totally original and untouched set.Chemised in a full maroon morocco slipcase, covers decoratively ruled in gilt, spine with five raised bands decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, decorative gilt board-edges. Small portion of lower edge of slipcase missing. With the engraved bookplate of Maxine and Joel Spitz on inside of front wrapper of part one.A bright, clean, and spectacular copy of an extremely scarce album in the original parts by Henry Alken. We have never seen nor heard of another copy in the original parts.Provenance: Purchased from the De Peyster Sale, American Art, New York, 15 March 1932. According to Schwerdt there was an uncolored edition of 1821. While Siltzer notes an Alken Sketch Book of 1820 (34 plates), and the Scraps... edition of 1822 (assumedly mistaken for 1823). It is not in found in Tooley or Abbey in any edition.The "Scraps" include equestrian, hunting, dog, bowling scenes, etc. In short, each print features a sporting tableau. Parts six and seven depict Turkish and English cavalry. The earlier parts show shooting, a wayside inn, dogs fighting, a seriously angry bull, coaching, hunting, and horse-racing scenes. Of Alken, Siltzer wrote, "It took but a short time for the leading art publishers of London to recognize his genius and to discover that they had 'struck a reef' of both artistic and financial value, and the well-known firms of Thomas M'Lean, S. and J. Fuller, and Rudolph Ackermann were not slow to reaping full benefit... It appears that Alken himself occasionally engraved plates, and thus added to the facility of production..."Schwerdt I, p. 21.

        Karl Holthoff, Büste nahezu en face.

      - Bleistift, auf Velin, um 1823. 15:11,4 cm. Der Dargestellte war der Gatte von Lila von Kügelgen. Die genaue Identifizierung der Dargestellten verdanken wir Dorothée von Hellermann, Maastricht (Nachricht vom 8.02.2010). Wilhelm von Kügelgen war der Sohn von Gerhard von Kügelgen (1772-1820). Seit 1805 in Dresden, lebte er 1817-1818 in Bernburg bei seinem späteren Schwiegervater F.A. Krummacher. Im Spätsommer ging er an die Dresdener Akademie zunächst als Schüler seines Vaters und nach dessen Ermordung 1820 bei F. Hartmann (1774-1842). Nach Abschluß des Studiums, unterbrochen 1822-1823 durch einen Aufenthalt in Estland bei seinen Verwandten mütterlicherseits, ging er im Herbst 1825 nach Rom, wo er mit seinem früheren Hauslehrer C.A. Senff (1785-1863) und mit B. Thorvaldsen (1770-1844) in der Casa Buti wohnte und die Lebensfreundschaft mit L. Richter (1803-1884) und C.G. Peschel (1798-1879) begründet wurde. Krankheit und die Verlobung mit Julie Krummacher veranlaßten ihn, Rom im Mai 1826 zu verlassen. Er kehrte über Florenz und Venedig in die Heimat zurück. Nach einem vergeblichen Versuch als Porträtmaler in St. Peterburg Fuß zu fassen, kehrte er schon 1829 wieder nach Dresden zurück. 1830 siedelte er nach Schloß Hermsdorf bei Dresden über, das einem Freund gehörte. 1833 wurde er als Hofmaler nach Ballenstedt berufen, wo er, unterbrochen von wenigen Reisen, bis 1853 dieses Amt innehatte. Bis 1863 betreute er als Kammerherr aufopfernd den geisteskranken Herzog. Danach war er schriftstellerisch tätig. Seine letzten Lebensjahre waren durch familiäre Schicksalsschläge und eigene Krankheit geprägt. Kügelgen veröffentlichte 1870 seine "Jugenderinnerungen eines alten Mannes", das sich großer Beliebtheit erfreute.

        Set of the three Reports of Inquiry

      House of Commons: 1822-, 1823. Folio, three Parliamentary Papers: pp. [iv], 186; pp. [ii], 90; pp. 112, several leaves unopened; fine in original blue paper wrappers, preserved in a lined modern half-calf folding box, spine gilt-lettered, together with a review of Bigge's report from The Edinburgh Review 1823. A fine set of the series of reports of the official enquiry into Governor Macquarie's administration of New South Wales, comprising:1) Report of the Commissioner of Inquiry into the State of the Colony (here in its first issue of June 1822, with the libel against William Wentworth. This first issue was withdrawn and is now rare. It was later reprinted on August 5 1822).2) Report of the Commissioner of Inquiry on Judicial Establishments (February 1823).3) Report of the Commissioner of Inquiry on Agriculture and Trade (March 1823).John Thomas Bigge was appointed Royal Commissioner, with sweeping powers, by Lord Bathurst - ostensibly to examine the transportation system, but in fact to cast a critical eye over every aspect of Macquarie's controversial administration. Bigge was unyielding in his critique and relations between the two were strained. However, by the time his reports were published, Macquarie had already resigned.Bigge's reports were central to the political history of the 1820s, and their influence can be seen in the later constitutional and political history of Australia. Indeed, it was as a result of Bigge's recommendations that the New South Wales Act of 1823 was ratified, authorising the establishment of a Supreme Court and Legislative Council in New South Wales, as well as a Supreme Court in Van Diemen's Land, and marked an important step towards responsible government in the colonies.Bigge's reports are also essential sources for information about conditions in New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land in the 1820s, not least because of his recognition of the growing importance of the colonies for wealthy free settlers. Bigge had urged the Colonial Office to seek places away from Sydney both to send intractable offenders and to encourage free settlement by releasing land for graziers. It was as a direct result of his report that the Moreton Bay area was first explored with a view to future settlement. Consequently, Oxley was commissioned by Brisbane to reconnoitre the north coast. He explored Moreton Bay and named the Brisbane River; his report ultimately led to the foundation of the Moreton Bay colony. Australian Rare Books, 46-8; Ferguson, 854, 891-2.

        German Popular Stories, Translated from the Kinder und Haus Märchen, Collected by M.M. Grimm, From Oral Tradition (2 volumes)

      London: First volume: C. Baldwyn. Second volume: James Robins & Co. and Joseph Robins Junr. & Co. (Dublin). Both volumes printed by Richard Taylor, 1823, 1826. First edition. Full Morocco. Very Good Plus. 8vo. 17.5 by 11 cm. xii, 240, iv, 256, [2] pp. Eleven and nine etched plates, plus etched illustrations on both title pages. The first volume, dated 1823, does have the umlaut correction on "Märchen", and the subtitle for "The Travelling Musician", making this the third issue, which is alternatively considered a second edition, but in either case was issued the same year as the first issue. This copy is also without the ads in the back. The second volume is without ads as well. Cohn 369. Notwithstanding these caveats, these are two very handsome copies of the first appearance in English of Grimm's anthology of German fairy tales. There is scattered foxing in the two volumes, and moderate offsetting of the plates. Still, most of the leaves are clean. Handsomely bound in a thick red morocco, raised bands, gilt decoration, with a striking ruled border on all the boards. Two tiny soil marks on the leather edge. With a neatly inscribed note on the first blank from a G. Chambers describing the rarity of the work, meaning the edition, and speaking of the (then recent) sale of the Beckford copy at the Hamilton Auction, which occurred in 1882.
