        Elia. Essays Which Have Appeared Under That Signature In The "London Magazine."

      London: Printed for Taylor and Hessey, Fleet-Street 1823 - First edition, first issue. 8vo. [iv], 341, [1] pp. Lacks the half-title. Later morocco, with gilt edges and gilt designs on spine. Four raised bands. Marbled edges. Interestingly, some of the provenance of this copy is listed on an otherwise blank preliminary. The first owner was apparently Bernard Barton, a close friend of Lamb's and himself a poet. Pasted below "Elia" on the title page is a small slip of paper with a hand-written note: "B. Barton with Elia's respects." Lamb apparently sent a copy of "Elia" (perhaps this very book) to Barton, and so advised him in a letter using the phrase " an Elia was book'd off to you." A month later Barton published a poem "To Elia" in The London Magazine. A rear blank page contains a penciled, four-line verse, beginning: "Serene Will be our days and bright " See The Letters of Charles Lamb, J. M. Dent & Sons Ltd., Volume II, pp. 365-366. The front hinge is cracked. The covers show light wear. Otherwise in very good condition. A Lamb-Barton association copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A Panoramic View of Sydney

      Colnaghi, 1823.. Three handcoloured lithographs, each approx. 470 x 620 mm., extensively restored. London, 1823. On 3rd June 1824 the Sydney Gazette advertised for sale "several Sets of beautifully executed coloured Prints, forming a Panoramic View of Sydney, from Designs by Major Taylor, of the 48th and now exhibiting in London, at Barker's Panorama".The artist James Taylor arrived in Sydney in 1817, a captain in the 48th Regiment. He was promoted to Major in 1822 and returned to England early in the same year. The set of three aquatints made by Robert Havell are based on his drawings and were published in August 1823 by Colnaghi & Co.Plate 1, "The Entrance of Port Jackson, and Part of the Town of Sydney, New South Wales", looks east across Sydney Cove and Port Jackson towards the harbour's entrance at The Heads.Plate 2, "The Town of Sydney in New South Wales", looks south in a large arc from the Macquarie Street ridge to Cockel Bay (now Darling Harbour).Plate 3, "Part of the Harbour of Port Jackson, and the country between Sydney and the Blue Mountains, New South Wales", looks west across Darling Harbour, from Pyrmont on the left to Lavender Bay on the extreme right.The set we offer here has been extensively restored but is still a charming reminder of Sydney in the first years of settlement..

Embellished with a View of the Old House. Second Edition. Penzance: Printed and Sold by T. Vigurs, no date. [1823]. 8vo, pp. [iv], 46 [47 - 48 adverts], engraved frontispiece of old house, with original printed wrappers bound in, the contemporary autograph "N. M. Peters" on title-page. BOUND WITH LE GRICE (Charles Valentine): An Imitation of Horace's First Epistle. Written at Trin. Coll. Cambridge, In the year 1793. Penzance: Printed by T. Vigurs, 1824. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. 8vo, pp. 11 [12 notes]; inscribed on top margin of title-page, "D. Gilbert, Esq. with the Author's Compts." Davis Gilbert (formerly Giddy, 1767 - 1839) was an engineer, author and politician; he was elected to the Royal Society in 1791, was its president from 1827 - 1830, a nd wa High Sheriff of Cornall, M. P. for Helston 1804 - 1806 and for Bodmin 1806 - 1832. 3 volumes bound in later 19th century half green hard grain morocco, marbled boards, gilt spine, bookplate of John Davies Enys on the front paste-down end-paper. Charles Valentine Le Grice (1773 - 1858) went to Christ's Hospital in London, where, according to Charles Lamb, he and Coleridge took part in witty exchanges. He became perpetual curate of St. Mary's Penzance in 1806 but continued to write prose and verse and to review for the London journals. "Le Grice's friends and associates sometimes judged him severely. Coleridge in 1794, Lamb in 1796, Wordsworth and Robert Southey in 1807, all expressed contempt for Le Grice in letters to third parties. The remarks of Coleridge and Lamb are petty; those of Wordsworth and Southey contain more serious charges, that Le Grice, writing for the Critical Review, was giving vent to hatred of Coleridge by venomously attacking Coleridge and his friends. According to Wordsworth, Le Grice was a 'most malignant Spirit'; to Southey, Le Grice's mind was 'perverted & mischievous'. But Wellens, who finds no evidence that Le Grice hated Coleridge, argues that Wordsworth and Southey misunderstood Le Grice whose severe criticisms were rather an attempt to uphold traditional neoclassical standards against the new Romantic poetry. In later life, at any rate, Le Grice met on cordial terms with all four: with Coleridge in 1833 at Highgate and Trinity; with Lamb, also in 1833, in Edmonton; with Southey at Trereife in 1836; and with Wordsworth at Rydal Mount in 1841" (ODNB).

        The Sea Songs of Charles Dibdin

      London,: G. and W.B. Whittaker,, 1823.. Tall quarto, copperplate engraved music and text; occasional foxing; contemporary half calf lightly rubbed at extremities, but a very handsome copy, the spine gilt and with an unusual triple "harlequin" set of labels in red, white & blue. First edition of this early collection of the patriotic ditties and rollicking shanties of the British navy: a fascinating and important record of the conditions of the Georgian sailor. Many of the songs had a lasting influence on the spirit of the navy, especially during the protracted war with France. Each is present in an engraved musical score with lyrics.The collection was authored by the prolific Charles Dibdin (1745-1815). His son Thomas, in a brief biographical notice appended to the 1850 collective edition of his father's sea-songs, remarked: 'These songs have been the solace of sailors in long voyages, in storms, in battles; and they have been quoted in mutinies to the restoration of order and discipline'. Readers may be surprised to learn that many take "Grog" or trouncing the French as their theme.Bringing out his first two-act opera when he was only sixteen, Dibdin had a long career as an actor and singer, and worked briefly with David Garrick. A seemingly inexhaustible writer, he composed some one thousand songs during his career and was also a sometime playwright, self-publishing Great News or A Trip to the Antipodes in 1794. For a complete list of the dramatist-composer's published and unpublished plays, musical entertainments and compositions see E.R. Dibdin, A Dibdin Bibliography (Liverpool, 1937). Dibdin was not much of a sailor himself: in 1788 he sailed for the East Indies, but inclement weather forced the ship back to port at Torbay. He took it as a sign and returned to London.This book neatly demonstrates the difficulty of producing a book with a letterpress introduction and engraved plates throughout: several numbers are omitted from the series and, conversely, three listed songs are not included. This is, nonetheless, the standard collation of the book with ninety-five (rather than ninety-nine) songs.

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

      [Boston], 19 june [?1823] - 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 4to. 1 p. pen and ink on paper.

        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.

        Autograph inscription signed "CMvWeber" to an unidentified male correspondent

      53 x 126 mm., cut from the title page of one of Weber's works. Dated Dresden, October 22, 1823. In German (with translation). & & "Dedicated to the excellent master.... in great haste, in remembrance of his true admirer." & & Slightly worn and soiled; one vertical crease; portion of inscription abraided and thus illegible. . "A prototypical 19th-century musician-critic, [Weber] sought through his works, words and efforts as performer and conductor to promote art and shape emerging middle-class audiences to its appreciation. His contributions to song, choral music and piano music were highly esteemed by his contemporaries, his opera overtures influenced the development of the concert overture and symphonic poem, and his explorations of novel timbres and orchestrations enriched the palette of musical sonorities. With the overwhelming success of his opera Der Freischütz in 1821 he became the leading exponent of German opera in the 1820s and an international celebrity. A seminal figure of the 19th century, he influenced composers as diverse as Marschner, Mendelssohn, Wagner, Meyerbeer, Berlioz and Liszt." Philipp Spitta et al in Grove online
