Oblong folio (9 7/8 x 14 in; 250 x 354 mm). Engraved title (plain) and over 100 hand-colored illustrations on twenty etched plates, watermarked 1822, with interleaves. Plates 4, 10, 11, 14 and 18 signed, "Drawn & etched by W. Heath"; imprint, "Published by W. Sams Royal Library 1 St. James's St"; dated variously from May through July 1823.Bound by Riviére & Son in half midnight blue morocco over blue cloth. Gilt-ruled and lettered title label. Gilt lettering to spine with gilt ornaments at head and tail. Top edge gilt. Occasional mild spotting and soiling. Upper joint near invisibly restored. A fine copy.Only eight copies in institutional holdings worldwide. Rarely seen in commerce, the last copy to come to auction was in 2006.This lavishly engraved, hand-colored book of caricature by William Heath shows a wide variety of contemporary English "types" depicted with great humor, including: "Grub Street Opera"; "Actress of all Work"; "All for Love"; "Maid of the Mill"; "The Devil to Pay"; "Three Weeks after Marriage"; etc.Watercolourist and caricaturist William Heath (1795-1840) worked mostly under the pseudonym of Paul Pry. He called himself 'Portrait and Military painter' and was reputed to be an 'ex-captain of dragoons' but is not recorded in the Army List. Heath began life as a draughtsman and his main claim to fame rests on his having produced the first caricature magazine in Europe, The Glasgow later Northern Looking-Glass, 1825-1826. Although this was a provincial work and without much text, it does pre-date Charles Philipon's similar publication. The height of his popularity fell between the years 1809-34, after which his humour was displaced by that of Robert Seymour and John Doyle" (Houfe, p. 338).Abbey, Life 415.

        Four autograph letters to Sir Robert Smirke

      - Gracious correspondence with the architect of Lowther Castle - four autograph letters signed to "Dear Sir", "My dear Sir", "Dear Sir Robert": 11pp. 8vo, [London] (Charles Street) &c, January 1823-September 1841. The bifolium blank of the first letter torn with some loss at foot, the third on mourning paper. William Lowther (1757-1844, succeeded 1788 as second Bt, 1802 as second Viscount Lowther, created 1807 Earl of Lonsdale), friend of William Pitt the younger and patron of William Wordsworth, gave Robert Smirke (1780-1867, knighted 1832) his first important commission in Lowther Castle, Westmorland (1806-11). Recommended by George Dance and Sir George Beaumont, the tiro architect started work on the project in 1806, submitting in 1814 his almost final bill for £77,000 (on inheriting his uncle's estates in 1802, Lowther enjoyed an annual income of some £100,000), but remained on call, evidently, for the rest of the Earl's life. A grand, super-castellated fantasy of a building with an elaborate Gothic interior, the castle is now, alas, a ruin. "Lowther!" cried Wordsworth in his eponymous sonnet, "in thy majestic pile are seen / Cathedral pomp and grace, in apt accord / With the baronial castle's sterner mien . . . " The Earl dispatches his business with great courtesy. His first letter (26 January 1823) concerns "raising the Chandelier" - perhaps the "gilt-brass Gothic chandelier of massive proportions" attributed to Smirke and offered at Sotheby's, 4 June 2008 - and gives his go-ahead for a Lodge: "I think the spot you have fix'd on for the Site of the Lodge very proper, & whenever it is convenient to you to send the Instructions for erecting the Building, preparations shall be made accordingly." His second (21 February 1823) makes light of "Bernasconi's Demand" - much of the plasterwork at Lowther was done by Francis/Francisco Bernasconi. The third (18 February 1839, black-edged: the Countess had died, 6 March 1838) reports on the effects of the hurricane of 6 January 1839 - the "Night of the Big Winds" in Ireland and, hardly less dramatically, in the north of England. Lowther Castle, by Lonsdale's account, stood up comparatively well. "You will have heard no Doubt," the Earl writes, "the great Devastation which the late Hurricane has committed at Lowther, & the immense Loss in Timber - within three miles of Lowther We have lost upwards of ten thousand Trees, about five Hundred of which were in the Terrace Garden, the South Front, & the Wood to the Eastward, call'd Jack Croft, the tallest & finest being the most exposed, became the greatest sufferers." Two battlement stones have fallen at the castle (one breaking "a large Quantity of Crockery"), some slates are off the Coach House, and "almost the whole of the Wall on each side of the Lodge, to the north, [is] laid Flatt"; glass in the Conservatory has broken, but "the great Window in the Tower, which seem'd most exposed to the Violence of the Tempest, has not suffer'd to the extent which might have been expected". Will Smirke kindly inspect the enclosed report (no longer present) from "Joh Gibson (whose gramatical education does not seem to have kept Place with his other acquirements)" and give the benefit of his advice? In Lonsdale's last letter (10 September 1841), written in a shaky hand, the older man commiserates with his architect: "I have been sincerely griev'd for the severe suffering you have experienc'd from the severe operation you have undergone, and for the general effect which the Complaint has had on your Health. I hope you will now enjoy some Repose . . . I much regret not having seen You, but I have been a great Cripple from Rheumatism since early in November & am still suffering from its effects. Will you be be so good as to inform me to what amount I am your Debtor." The Earl died two and a half years later, aged 86. Smirke outlived him by 23 - dying at the age of 87.

As a philosopher, he is interesting for his criticism of the theory of the thing-in-itself. Following this train of thought, Bouterwek left the Kantian position through his opposition to its formalism. His chief critical work was the Geschichte der neuern Poesie und Beredsamkeit (Gttingen, 12 vols. , 1801-1819), of which the history of Spanish literature has been published separately in French, Spanish and English. Condition: In original publisher's paper covered boards with cloth spines, and paper spine labels. Externally sound although rubbed with marks, and wear to the spines. Internally, firmly bound.

      Paris, Beraud 1823 - In-12. Collation : (4), 139 pp. Demi-veau rouge, dos orné. (Reliure de l'époque.) Première édition du premier livre d’Edgard Quinet (1803-1875). Ce petit ouvrage qui ne connut qu’un succès d’estime, est aujourd’hui de la plus grande rareté : seule la BNF en conserve un exemplaire d’après le CCFr. Un «conte voltairien qui exprime la crise de scepticisme que le jeune Quinet traverse à cette époque. Dernier exemple d’une chronique à la manière du XVIIIe siècle». (Edgard Knecht, Le mythe du Juif errant. Esquisse de bibliographie raisonnée p. 111.) ENVOI DE L’AUTEUR au verso du faux-titre: «à Mr Bayard, hommage d’une vive amitié.» «A l’heure de mettre le manuscrit sous presse, le principal confident de l’auteur avait été un jeune vaudevilliste nommé Bayard, celui-là même qui, devenu plus tard le collaborateur de Scribe, a peuplé comme lui tous les théâtres et laissé un nom dans les lettres dramatiques. Bayard, né à Charolles comme Quinet, mais plus âgé que lui de six ou sept ans, ne l’avait pas connu dans sa ville natale ; quand ils se rencontrèrent à Paris, ils se lièrent d’une étroite amitié. C’était le moment où Bayard débutait au théâtre ; il était bon, aimable, sans façon, et l’un de ses plus grands plaisirs était de conduire son grave condisciple aux premières représentations de ses pièces. Il lut les Tablettes du Juif-Errant et en fut charmé. Qui se serait figuré le futur poète d’Ahasvérus, de Napoléon, de Prométhée, introduit dans le monde des lettres par le futur auteur du Gamin de Paris et de la Marquise de Prétintaille ? Les premiers admirateurs ne causent pas moins de surprise que le premier confident. Je trouve, il est vrai, sur la liste le nom de Benjamin Constant, celui des filles de la maréchale Ney, mais un des lecteurs qui ont pris feu le plus vite est le vieux conventionnel Dulaure.» (Saint-René Taillandier, in Revue des Deux Mondes, 1877).

        Autographed Manuscript Signed

      Geneva, NY, 1823. Geneva, NY, 1823. unbound. Original detailed autographed manuscript signed, folio, 10 pages (front and back), 13 x 8 inches, Geneva, New York, May 20, 1823 -- an extensive draft describing an invention that was called "a machine for hulking and cleaning clover seed," a device that was granted a patent by the United States Government on March 18, 1824. Burrall explains in detail that his innovation is unique because previous models wasted much of the seed, worked slowly, and ran at a great expense because they required immense power to propel them. "The machine that I am about to describe is free from all the above. It is cheap, simple and durable - may be propelled to advantage, either by hand by horse or water power - it feeds regularly & equally - the seed is beaten or whipped out lightly and briskly, all the light chaff containing no seed is thrown off before it reaches the working part of the mechanism." Much more exceptional content. This manuscript has heavy natural folds, but is still in very good condition. Pioneer, settler, and inventor who owned extensive land in the City of Geneva, Ontario County, New York. Despite holding patents for such successful inventions as the thrashing machine, the corn planter, cooking stove, and corn sheller, it was his association with Joseph Smith that would bring him notoriety. Historians speculate that Smith, the Mormon prophet, acquired use of some of Burrall's lands by the Seneca/Ontario border and on September 22, 1823 found the "certain plates of gold which recorded the true history of the Church of the American continent," the result becoming the Book of Mormon. Joseph Smith's use of clover seed is well documented in John Heinerman's acclaimed books "Joseph Smith and Herbal Medicine" and "Joseph Smith and Natural Foods.
