        [MAP] Australien

      / entworfen und gezeichnet 1823 nach dem Krusenstern'schen Atlasse umgearbeitet 1825. Weimar: Im Verlage des Geograph. Instituts, 1826. Engraved map with hand colouring, 430 x 595 mm, dissected and laid down on linen, folding to 220 x 190 mm; map of Australia and Oceania with relief shown by hachures; in very good condition with a tiny amount of spotting, the linen backing with mild foxing. Although the coastlines of Australia, New Guinea, the Indonesian archipelago, New Zealand, island Polynesia, Micronesia and Melanesia are all essentially complete, perhaps the most striking aspect of this map is the vast emptiness of the as yet unexplored interiors of both the Australian continent (Neu Holland) and New Guinea. The cartographer, C.F. Weiland, was trained as a military mapmaker, and as head of map and globe production at the Weimar Geographical Institute, a publishing house and research institute, he was responsible for revising many earlier maps by important cartographers. Weiland's maps are noted for their accuracy and fine engraving, and the present example is no exception. A single copy is recorded in Australian collections (National Library of Australia).

        The Jesuits Unmasked, Being An Illustration Of The Existing Evils Of Popery In A Protestant Government

      London - B. Seeley And Son 1823 - A rare first edition of William Parker's petition to the House of Commons, complaining of Jesuit activities in South Africa. Scarce last seen at auction in 2001In this deeply sectarian series of missives, Parker complains that English Protestant settlers in South Africa have been exposed to the risk of extirpation. He argues that a conspiracy to this end was being directed from the Jesuit Institution in Lancashire. The issue was discussed in Parliament, and as such can be found in Hansard from that year. There is an advert for the work appended, which explains that it was framed at periods when the writer and his family suffered most severely from the conduct of official men, and when he was well convinced that popery in the government of the Cape, caused the oppression exercised towards him. This copy is from the collection of George Harwood, and his bookplate can be found to the front pastedown. Harwood was a businessman and Liberal party politician who lived from 1845 to 1912. He was once Mayor of Bolton and Twice Mayor of Salford. Condition: In half morocco with gilt detailing to the spine. Externally very smart indeed, with very minor rubbing to the extremities of the boards and a few light marks elsewhere. The spine has a particularly nice colour. There are two notices mentioning the bookto the front pastedown, the second of which notes that the work is extremely rare. There is also a bookplate to the front pastedown. The pages are uncut, but are generally clean and bright. Firmly bound. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Alexander Campbell (1764-1824), composer and writer, published several collections of Scottish songs, and while a teacher in Edinburgh "gave lessons in harpsichord and singing. Among his pupils were Walter Scott and his brothers, but the lads had no taste for the subject and the master had no patience" (ODNB). Campbell's main project, long delayed, was Albyn's anthology, begun in the 1790s and published in 2 volumes 1816-18; a third volume was projected but never published. In later years, Campbell was dependent upon Scott and copied manuscripts for him. "At Abbotsford Campbell was known as the 'Dunnie-wassail' ? He died from an attack of apoplexy on 15 May 1824 ? His manuscripts were sold 'under judicial authority'" (ODNB).Campbell's verse is rhymed and metrical.

        England's safety: or, a bridle to the French King. Proposing a sure method for encouraging navigation, and raising qualified seamen ...London, William Miller, 1693. 4to. With a pseudo-heraldic woodcut frontispiece (17 x 12 cm) with letterpress title and motto ("This encouraged, England must flourish."), with as bearing an anchor topped by the royal crown, and other nautical attributes, supported by 2 men, one with a globe and the other with a quadrant, each with a compass at his feet. The British flag flies above it with ships in the background. Set in roman and italic types. 18th-century blue paper wrappers, side stitched through 4 holes, with manuscript title-label on front.

      ESTC R229366; DNB L, p. 172; Cat. Goldsmith I, 2996; Kress 1823; Wing S342. Second edition, with additional material and 8 pages longer than the first edition published earlier in the same year, of a rare and interesting pamphlet containing proposals for the improvement of England's navy and maritime trade, by the naval Captain and administrator George St. Lo (1658-1718).St. Lo suggest several methods for improving the British navy, recommends raising the pay of the crew and proposes that all seamen be registered with a local intendant, so that when the call for service does come, men may be located and distributed more quickly. He also notes that the French spend much more money on their navy. Regarding the confiscation of foreign cargo, St. Lo proposes that fully one third of the value of the goods be awarded to the captain and the crew. When it comes time to auction the actual goods, he recommends the spoils be broken into small lots, to allow for the greatest price per lot, thus increasing revenue.St. Lo's nine-page dedicatory letter to the Houses of Parliament gives a fascinating and detailed account of his own mistreatment by the French after his capture. In August 1688 St. Lo was appointed Captain of the Portsmouth and attached to the fleet in the river under Lord Dartmouth. He continuing to command her after the Glorious Revolution of 1688/89. In 1690 he was captured by the French and carried, severely wounded, to Brest, where he remained a prisoner for some time. His wound probably disqualified him from further service afloat, and in 1692 he was appointed a commissioner of prizes, in 1693 an extra commissioner of the navy, and in 1695 resident commissioner at Plymouth, where in 1697 he was directed to guard and assist the workmen employed in the construction of the first Eddystone lighthouse.With what may be an owner's monogram (JNL?) on the title-page. Where the author notes some opposition to his book, the owner has struck through his statement that it did not affect sales. In good condition and wholly untrimmed, slightly thumbed and with some quires slightly browned. The spine of the wrapper is tattered.

        The Social Day: A Poem, in Four Cantos

      London: Printed by J.(ames) Moyes, Greville Street for James Carpenter & Son, Old Bond Street; and R. Ackermann, Strand, 1823. First Edition, Large Paper copy. Engraved title, portrait, and 30 engraved plates with India proofs before letters tipped in. xvi, [16], 354, [4] pp. 1 vols. 4to (11 x 7-1/2 inches). Bound in full purple morocco by Zaehnsdorf in an EXHIBITION BINDING with gilt stamp on back pastedown, original paper label tipped in at back, with price for Large Paper Copies stated as "£4. 4." and also marked "Subscriber's Copy." Open-faced purple morocco slipcase. First Edition, Large Paper copy. Engraved title, portrait, and 30 engraved plates with India proofs before letters tipped in. xvi, [16], 354, [4] pp. 1 vols. 4to (11 x 7-1/2 inches). The First Steel-Engraved Plate?, LARGE PAPER, WITH INDIA PROOFS. 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. A note at the front of the book and on the list of subscribers identifies this as Scottish artist David Wilkie's copy. He painted the scene after which the plate at page 288 was engraved.

        Grammatica Sanskrita Nunc primum in Germania edidit Othmarus Frank

      Wirceburgi [Würzburg], Typographice et lithographice sumtibus propriis; Lipsiae [Leipzig], Prostat apud Fridericum Fleischer, 1823 . Crown quarto. Pp. xv, v, 218. Plus 10 plates of which 4 are folding. Bound in the original publisher's paper-covered card boards, both sides with a decorative frame with a central ornament embossed in black; boards bit marked, spine worn, small stain on back cover. With neat, contemporary inscription on first flyleaf. A very good, wide-margined copy, very well preserved entirely in the original state. ~ First edition. A good copy of the first Sanskrit grammar to appear in Germany, and a unique example of printing art. Lacking an access to any Sanskrit types, Frank could not print the book in letterpress and had to use lithography, a technique usually reserved for the printing of illustrations. Typographically it is unique that the entire text, both the Latin and the Sanskrit, were transferred to stone by hand. Very scarce. Unsophisticated copies in the original binding are practically nonexistent.

(3) GUTBIER, Aegidius. Notae criticae in Novum Testamentum Syriacum ... Hamburg, Aegidius Gutbier, 1667. 3 works in 1 volume. 8vo. Contemporary vellum.

      Darlow & Moule 8966; VD17, 39:142375F, 3:316277C, 75:689489C. First edition of by far the best edition of the Syriac New Testament published before the 19th-century, edited by Aegidius Gutbier, which remained the standard Syriac text until Samuel Lee's 1823 edition. For the first book (the gospel of Matthew) it includes Gutbier's Latin translation of the Syriac at the foot of the page. With the New Testament are two complementary works by Gutbier, produced in matching format and intended to accompany it: his Syriac lexicon giving the Syriac words with their Latin equivalents, followed by an index of the Latin words; and his extensive notes on the Syriac text of the New Testament, with alternative readings from the many sources he examined. The New Testament relates stories that would have first been told (and in some cases probably also written down) in Aramaic, the vernacular language of Palestine in Jesus's time. Syriac, another dialect of Aramaic, served as the vernacular language of much of the Middle East. The Syriac text therefore provides valuable clues to the Aramaic sources of the New Testament. With a 1691 Amsterdam purchase inscription and two 1859 owner's inscriptions. In good condition, with the lower right corner of the engraved title-page under-inked, the paper slightly browned and an occasional minor spot or small stain. Binding with some of the vellum tapes broken at the hinge, some cracks in the hinges and with the back of the bookblock reinforced, but still generally good. Three complementary books forming the most important reference work for 17th- and 18th-century Syriac studies.
