Octavo (8" x 5 3/4") bound half black blue leather with gilt lettering to spine and blue cloth boards. From the library of George M Foster. First edition. George McClelland Foster, Jr born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on October 9, 1913, died on May 18, 2006, at his home in the hills above the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, where he served as a professor from 1953 to his retirement in 1979, when he became professor emeritus. His contributions to anthropological theory and practice still challenge us; in more than 300 publications, his writings encompass a wide diversity of topics, including acculturation, long-term fieldwork, peasant economies, pottery making, public health, social structure, symbolic systems, technological change, theories of illness and wellness, humoral medicine in Latin America, and worldview. The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated. Provenance from the executor of Foster's library laid in. Condition: Foster's stamp to title and his acquired date on front paste down. Light rubbing to hinges else a very good copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        JOURNAL OF A RESIDENCE IN ASHANTEE

      1824 - DUPUIS, Joseph. JOURNAL OF A RESIDENCE IN ASHANTEE. Comprising notes and researches relative to the Gold Coast, and the Interior of Western Africa; chiefly collected from Arabic MSS. and information communicated by the Moslems of Guinea: to which is prefixed an account of the origin and causes of the present war. London: Printed for Henry Colburn, 1824. First edition. Illustrated with a folding map and fifteen plates, of which three are folding and one a double-spread. [2],viii,xxxviii,[2],264,cxxxvi pp. Quarto, untrimmed. Original binding; brick cloth spine and grey paper boards, with a printed paper spine label. Boards show general wear at edges and moderate soiling. The cloth spine is sunned and worn through in places, revealing a heavier cloth support below, and the label is chipped. Sporadic foxing throughout text leaves, mostly in the margins, with occasional soiling; however, the foxing is moderately heavy on the opening and closing leaves. The plates show light to moderate foxing, and a few of the plates have some splitting at folds. One plate has an irregular closed tear at the inside edge of the plate. The map also has an irregular tear and is missing chip at the inside edge of the plate. Nonetheless, it is a scarce work, complete and in original boards. Lowndes calls it "a valuable work written by a man of talent." (Abbey 281).

        KIHO^ GAFU

      1824 - [EHON] Kawamura Kiho, artist. KIHO GAFU. Kyoto: Yoshida Shimbei, Bunsei 7, [1824]. 1 volume, complete. 5 pp. prelims., 30 double-page color woodblock prints, 1 p. final, [pseudo]-colophon. The covers are green with a blind- stamped vegetal pattern, with a title label printed in brown on buff paper. 17.8 x 25.1 cm. The covers are fairly clean, the contents very good. This copy is a bit anomalous: It differs from Mitchell's examples "A" and "B" but is more like "B" than "A". It colors are a bit later, the keyblocks are printed darkly. There is a printed title-page on the inner front cover, on yellow paper. There is no final colophon, but rather a final undated page [pseudo-colophon] listing four bookshops. The last and lead shop is Fukui Genjiro. Sealed throughout like Michell's "A" example. (Mitchell pp. 360,1; Brown p. 105; Ryerson p. 388; Kerlen #839). Kiho was the adopted son of Bumpo and his work rivals Bumpo's in freshness and simplicity. Bibliographically, a very interesting example of this lovely book.

        A Day’s Journal of a Sponge.

      London: Published for the Proprietor, by Rowney & Forster, 1824. - The Profoundly Rare Misadventures of a Free-LoaderTold in Six Beautifully Hand-Colored Aquatint Plates[EGERTON, Michael]. A Day’s Journal of a Sponge. By Peter Pasquin. London: Published for the Proprietor, by Rowney and Forster, 51, Rathbone Place. 1824.First edition. Oblong folio (10 1/2 x 14 1/2 inches; 267 x 369 mm.). Printed title-page and six bright and beautifully hand-colored aquatint plates. The plates are unsigned, with imprint: London, Published by W. Egerton, 1824, and do not possess watermarks, as noted by Abbey. Of extraordinary significance and scarcity is the presence of the title page, lacking in the copy Abbey examined, and, as a result, Abbey notes the title simply as Sponge. The title page is missing from the precious few that we have had the opportunity to examine over the last forty years. Houfe notes this volume but under the title Sponge as well.Original printed drab wrappers. Three inch split to spine foot. Small chip to upper corner of front wrapper. Tear to rear wrapper professionally repaired. Quarter inch stain at bottom edge to first plate not affecting image. Otherwise an excellent copy of a scarce volume. Housed in a blue cloth clamshell case.OCLC notes only one copy (with title page; ascension no. 78397586) but does not identify the holding institution; no copies located in KVK: A work of profound rarity, rarer still with the title page. These satiric plates with their lengthy droll and witty captions depict the comic misadventures of a pretentious, social striving man about town free-loader, moocher, muzzler, cadger, touch-artist; a Regency Period slacker who is thick as a brick but convinced otherwise. This work has been attributed by Abbey and Houfe to M[ichael]. Egerton, a social caricaturist who worked in London in the 1820s in the manner of George Cruikshank. The Plates, untitled but each with three-five lines of text that begin:1. Was stirring with the lark 2. Feeling one of those pangs 3. Having returned, & hired a Chaise 4. Former fears confirmed 5.

        Rosa Gallica caerulea. Rosier de Provins à feuilles bleuâtres

      Firmin Didot], [Paris 1824 - Stipple engraving printed in black, on ochre-tinted paper, by Eug. Talbaux, after Redouté, printed by Rémond. Very good condition. A very rare uncoloured 'connoisseur's' impression on ochre-tinted paper from the first edition of 'Les Roses': Redouté's most famous work, and perhaps the most celebrated flower book of all time The present uncoloured plate was printed on ochre paper as it was realized that this gave a pleasing effect. The ochre background enhances the subtle gradations of tone achieved using the stipple engraving technique and gives a unique opportunity to appreciate the unrivalled artistry of both Pierre-Joseph Redouté himself and the master-craftsman he employed to translate his watercolour into a print of the highest quality. Redouté learned, whilst on a visit to London, that the most successful impressions of stipple engravings came from well-used plates. A number of black plates would thus be struck to take the edge off the plate before printing in colours. Redouté's printers struck black impressions - always on a paper with a distinct ochre tint - from the plates, and these early impressions were then combined with later colour-printed examples to form the de luxe issues of 'Les Roses'. Redouté's 'Les Roses' was issued in four formats: a large paper folio with coloured plates, a large paper folio with the plates in two states, folio with coloured plates, and folio with the plates in two states (the present plate comes from this final de luxe form). Gavin Bridson and Donald Wendel, in their magisterial 'Printmaking in the service of botany' catalogue (Hunt Institute for Botanical Documentation, 1986, item 25) noted that Redouté 'For the interest of connoisseurs' included `a set of black plates as a parallel series to the usual color-printed versions' in 'special issues' of both the present work and his earlier 'Les Liliacées'. The number of these special issues that were produced is unfortunately not recorded but to judge from auction records over the past twenty-five years they are extremely rare: only four complete sets of 'Les Roses' in this format are recorded. The present print therefore comes from an edition that was severely limited, and is certainly much rarer than its colour-printed equivalent. Cf. Cleveland Collections 807; cf. Dunthorne 232; cf. Hunt Redoutéana 19; cf. Hunt, Printmaking in the Service of Botany 25; cf. Nissen BBI 1599; cf. Pritzel 7455; cf. Ray French 89; cf. Stafleu and Cowan 8748. [Attributes: First Edition]

Miscellaneous Poems[fifty-nine poems]. Fragments [numbering nie, including Charles the First and Prince Athanase, Pt, II]. Alastor, or The Spirit of Solitude [ first published in 1816]. Translations [numbering five]. It was with difficulty that a publisher was found for the book, the sale of two hundred and fifty copies being guaranteed by Thomas Lovell Beddoes, Bryan Waller Proctor (?Barry Cornwall?) and Thomas Forbes Felsall. The original intentions to include certain prose pieces was abandoned on account of the size of the volume. (GRANNIS, 80) Mary Shelley?s campaign to make the world appreciate Percy Shelley?s genius and personal virtues was astutely planned. She decided to publish first his posthumous poems, then his prose. Some private verses she did not consider including, and she omitted his polemic poems - though she circulated them privately - in order to show ?how he could write without shocking people, ? after which the public would be receptive to his complete works. In this decision she also deferred to John Hunt, recently imprisoned for an Examiner attack on Parliament and soon to be fined for publishing Byron?s ?Vision of Judgement. ?The Posthumous Poems of Percy Shelley were published in June 1824 and included sixty-five unpublished poems, thirteen out of print, and five translations. Mary Shelley?s preface went straight to the point of Shelley?s ill repute: ?his fearless enthusiasm in the cause which he considered the most sacred upon earth, the improvement of the moral and physical state of mankind, was the chief cause why he, like other illustrious reformers, was pursued by hatred and calumny. ? Ignoring his controversial private life, she extolled his virtues and gifts, and described her terrible vigil at Lerici. Posthumous Poems accomplished what Mary Shelley intended: before it, Shelley?s immorality, destructiveness, and incomprehensibility where legend, and he was largely unread; upon its publication there was a surge of interest a he seemed at once more accessible and admirable. Moreover though she has been charged with initiating the legend of the ethereal Shelley, that legend evolved out of his projection of himself and a cultural shift from the Byronic ideal to oneof pre-Victorian evangelism, dedication, and earnestness. Besides he grew to be a hero to radicals as well. On July 23 Mary was shocked to learn that Sir Timothy Shelley was infuriated by Posthumous Poems and would terminate her allowance unless she withdrew it from circulation, stopped publication of the prose, and moreover promised not to publish anything by our about Shelley during his own lifetime. Three hundred copies of the poem and been sold, about tenfold more than any of the poems published in Shelley?s lifetime. , and the projected prose volume was slim. After urgent consultations with Peacock, who negotiated with with Whitton, she capitulated to Sir Timothy. (SUNSTEIN,248, 257, 260); 415 pages
