        Der Wildschütze. Ein Trauerspiel in vier Aufzügen.

      Luzern, bey Xaver Meyer 1825 - 124 S., (1) Bl. Halblederband d.Zt. mit Rückenschild und „amorpher“ –vergoldung. Leicht berieben, kleiner Papieraufkleber a.d. Rücken. - Erste Ausgabe (Thode 1825.4; Goedeke X,378,14). – Teils etwas stockfleckig, Nummerierung in Bleistift a.d. Innendeckel: „VIII 2435“ (diese Nummerierung zusammen mit der Sigle a.d. Rücken weisen das Exemplar als aus der Bibliothek des bayerischen Königshauses stammend aus). Vorzugsausgabe auf Velin, die so nicht in den Handel kam. HARRING (Ibenshof/Schleswig 1798 – 1870 Jersey) hatte das Trauerspiel im August 1824 in München abgeschlossen, also bald nach der erfolgreichen Aufführung seines Griechenland-Dramas Die Mainotten. Im Gegensatz zu der Tagesaktualität dieses Stücks verlegt HARRING die Handlung hier in die Mitte des 16.Jahrhunderts, Ort der Handlung ist das „welsche Tyrol“. Zwar ist der Mord an dem für Freiheit und Gerechtigkeit kämpfenden Vater des Protagonisten durch einen despotischen Tyrannen Ausgangspunkt der Tragödie, jedoch ist Der Wildschütz kein explizit politisches, sondern ein Schauspiel um Liebe, Hass und Missverständnisse, die tödlich enden.

Each volume c. 250-300 pp. Most volumes with a engraved frontis= c.45-50 fine plates throughout. Full contemporary green paper covered boards, smooth spines with gilt decoration, devices & black gilt leather labels, owner's name stamped in gilt on red oval morocco labels to front boards, boards outlined in gilt patterns, wonderful engraved frontispieces throughout. The engraved near miniature frontispieces are often charming allegorical images, well executed, richly printed, and are all signed in the plate by the engraver. Attractive, rare, monumental huge set of charming, early-19th century bindings which are utterly unique in shelf appearance. Set shows clear signs of usage, rubbing, small scuffing, light soiling and age, but as the pictures show, still a noble and very handsome looking old set of leather bound books. Textblocks square, tight, clean-moderately toned with some light scattered foxing throughout, which is most often heaviest on the engraved plates. Worthy of any library shelf or museum. Sets like this display character. Slight wear to an old object gives it a modern appeal which we believe exceeds the same item in untouched almost perfect condition.

        Johann Esquimaux. Original portrait in pen-and-ink, with manuscript annotation in German, by an Inuit artist who was exhibited as a curiosity in Europe and the United States.

      ca1825 - Framed pen-and-ink portrait of an Eskimo--possibly a self-portrait--by "George" Niakungitok, with three annotations in German Kurrentschrift at the right. Drawing is 18 x 13 cm (total area with annotations: 19.5 x 24.5 cm) on larger laid paper, previously folded vertically in the center. In October 1820, Samuel Hadlock Jr. (1792-1829), a whaling captain from Maine, brought onboard his ship "Five Brothers" an Eskimo man from Labrador, and then picked up an Eskimo woman and child about 50 miles further down the coast.Hadlock was in Labrador to obtain a cargo of ice for the West Indies trade, but arranged with the families of the two young Eskimos to take them with him until the following summer. They were initially exhibited in New London, Connecticut, and by his uncle Epps Hadlock in New York and Philadelphia in early 1821 (See Hugh L. Dwelley, "Hadlock's Eskimos in New York," 1821). A recent widower, Samuel Hadlock then left his three children with his sister and sailed for Europe, where he exhibited his "Esquimaux Indians" and "Museum" at country fairs throughout England and Ireland, and then in Hamburg, Leipzig, Berlin, Dresden, Potsdam, Prague, Vienna, Munich, Stuttgart and Strasbourg during the period of 1821-1825. According to a booklet printed to accompany the exhibition, Hadlock's "Museum" contained 77 items, with about equal proportions of North American Indian and Eskimo clothing and ethnological objects; natural history specimens, especially various animal skins, teeth, bones, and various "oddities"; and New Zealand Maori clothing and objects, including a jade hei tiki and a preserved tattooed head. The Eskimo couple originally consisted of 27 year old Niagungitok, baptized George (at the Moravian mission at Hopedale, where he learned to read lnuktitut and speak English), 25 year old Mary Coonahnik, and an infant who died in New York. Mary died later that year in England, and for exhibition purposes was initially replaced by a Gypsy woman dressed as an Eskimo, and later by another dark-complexioned but more sober and reliable impostor! Niagungitok demonstrated the use of his kayak, a dog pulling a sled, his skill at spearing birds (and coins), and an "Eskimo marriage ceremony", both before the general paying public and for royalty (after Hadlock's marriage to the daughter of a worker at the Royal brass works near Berlin). He also sold his pen and pencil drawings, most of the few known examples showing him holding a harpoon, his "wife" holding a fish on a short line, and a dog standing in between. After George died of pneumonia in Strasbourg on November 18, 1825, his "wife" was exhibited in Paris together with George's stuffed corpse. Hadlock returned to his home on Great Cranberry Island in Maine with his new Prussian wife and their daughter, born in Paris shortly before their return in the late spring of 1826. He died in 1829 on the coast of Greenland when his ship and all hands were lost at sea while on an Arctic voyage in pursuit of seals, which he planned to stuff and sell to European royalty for their collections of curiosities.

        Der Eislauf oder das Schrittschuhfahren, ein Taschenbuch für Jung und Alt. Mit Gedichten von Klopstock, Göthe, Herder, Cramer, Krummacher etc.

      Nuremberg: Campe, 1825. 8vo (172 x 98 mm). [2] leaves, 180 pp. Six etched plates, including frontispiece, by Johann Adam Klein. Wove paper, the plates on thick card paper. Light foxing to the plates. Publisher's illustrated paper boards (soiled, darkened, and rubbed with a couple of losses to paper), bright green edges. Provenance: twentieth-century bookplate of "Dr. Sträguber."*** First Edition of a notoriously rare ice-skating book, beautifully illustrated, and in its original illustrated binding. Ice-skating became popular among the bourgeoisie in Germany in the late 18th century. The earliest German book on ice-skating was by Gerhard Ulrich Anton Vieth, whose anonymously published and extremely rare Ueber das Schlittschuhlaufen appeared in 1790. One or two other publications preceded the present tribute to the pastime, which is the most detailed and elaborately illustrated early work of the genre, and "the first book in any language to describe skating with a partner" (Hines). The author and compiler Zindel approaches the sport, or art, both technically and lyrically. Part one contains instructions for equipment, proper form and technique, safety precautions, exercises, meeting-places, and instructions for ice-dancing in a group. The second part, called an Anhang or Supplement but taking up nearly half of the book, contains 27 literary pieces (previously published). Most are by Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock, whose 1764 poem "Der Eislauf" (the first poem in the section) helped launch the vogue for ice-skating; others are from Goethe (also a passionate skater), Carl Friedrich Cramer and Johann Gottfried Herder. The final chapters provide a brief history of ice-skating, accounts of recent iceskating races, speed records, and ice festivals, and finally, news of the latest Parisian fashions for ice-skating attire, for both ladies and gentlemen. Zindel's book was praised by Lanckoronska and Rümann as a notable exception to the generally indifferent quality of late Romantic gift books, children books, and Taschenbücher (p. 164), "particularly because of the fine illustrations by the Nuremberg engraver Johann Adam Klein." Klein's frontispiece depicts dozens of skaters on the Nuremberg lake, the Dutzendteich. The other plates show an assortment of skates with different kinds of attaches, a front and back view of the costume and posture of the "Schrittschuhfahrer" (lead skater), men skating in groups and "ice-waltzing", and a woman being pushed in a skate-chair. The illustrated binding shows on each cover six of the signs of the zodiac, above and below an allegorical scene, of the winds blowing down snow on a crowd of skaters on the front cover, and the god of Winter giving an order to his minions on the lower cover. Zindel's choice of vocabulary to describe the art of ice-skating was laden with poetic resonance. In German, the usual words for ice skates and ice-skating were by this time (as they still are) Schlittschuhe and Schlittschuhfahren. This was a distortion of the original word Schrittschuh, derived from Old Saxon skridsk h, and Old High German scritiscuoh. Klopstock in particular, who is addressed by Cramer in a letter included in this edition, as "O Klopstock, great Apostle of Ice-skating!" (p. 99), energetically defended the use of the r rather than the l, on rather different grounds, as reported by Goethe in Dichtung und Wahrheit (Book 5, Part 3), where he related Klopstock's insistence that the word derived from the verb schreiten, to stride, "indem man, zum Homerischen Göttern gleich, auf diesen geflügelten Sohlen über das zum Boden gewordene Meer hinschritte..." (because, like Homeric gods, on these winged soles one strides forward over the lake, [which has] become the ground"). A supposed 1824 edition with the same imprint, listed in some bibliographies, is a ghost. Klein's engravings were reprinted in 1925 as the annual book for the Friends' Circle of the Berlin State Art Library, and a modern facsimile edition of the present edition was published in 1980. OCLC lists two copies in American libraries, at Yale and MIT. Goedeke IV/3, 223, 7; Lanckoronska-Rümann, Geschichte der deutschen Taschenbücher und Almanache aus der klassisch-romantischen Zeit, 164-5.

        The Principles of Political Economy:

      Edinburgh: for William and Charles Tait, and Longman & Co, London,, 1825. with a sketch of the rise and progress of the science. Octavo (218 x 128 mm). Modern tan full levant morocco, contemporary red morocco label reused, flat bands ruled in gilt, central tool to compartments gilt, edges speckled brown. Bound without the half-title and publisher's ads. Faint spotting to endleaves. An excellent copy. First edition of the author's first major work, expanded from his contribution to the 1824 edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica, "the first substantive text on political economy to appear in the encyclopaedia" (ODNB). David Ricardo, with whom McCulloch corresponded since he started taking an interest in political economy as a young man, described the article as a "valuable historical sketch" and "clear exposition of all the important principles of the science that you have left nothing for me to wish for" (P. Sraffa and M. H. Dobb (eds.), The Works and Correspondence of David Ricardo, 1951–73, Vol. 9, p. 275). The Principles of Economy enjoyed a wave of popularity soon after publication and went through five editions but was supplanted in the late 1840s by John Stuart Mill's work of the same title. McCulloch's discussion on profit and interest with regards to a cask of wine is still used today to illustrate the labour theory of value: "Suppose, to illustrate the principle, that a cask of new wine, which cost £50, is put into a cellar, and that, at the end of twelve months, it is worth £55, the question is – whether ought the £5 of additional value, given to the wine, be considered as a compensation for the time the £50 worth of capital has been locked up, or should it be considered as the value of additional labour actually laid out in the wine?" (p. 313).

At Rome he early made a favorable impression on the imperial government. Returning to Jerusalem, he endeavored to dissuade his countrymen from their intended revolt against Roman authority; but, failing in his efforts, he joined the war party. He was made a general, and was entrusted with the defense of Galilee; but, after a desperate resistance, was betrayed to the Roman commander. Long held as a prisoner, he was present at the siege of Jerusalem. At the close of the war he went to Rome, was presented with the freedom of the city, an annual pension, and a house that had formerly been the residence of an imperial family. The remainder of his life he gave up to literary pursuits" (Adams, Manual of Historical Literature, p. 81). His works cover the entire history of the nation to the fall of Jerusalem.

        THE SUBSTANCE OF THE SPEECH OF GENERAL SIR JOHN DOYLE, BART. G.C.B. AND K.C. AT THE INDIA HOUSE, UPON THE HYDERABAD PAPERS, ON FRIDAY, MARCH 4, 1825.

      London, Matthew Iley, 1825.. FIRST EDITION 1825. 8vo, approximately 220 x 130 mm, 8¾ x 5¼ inches, 77 pages, finely bound in full straight grain black morocco, triple gilt ruled outer border enclosing elaborate gilt and blind border to covers, triple ruled inner border with corner ornaments, faux gilt raised bands, richly gilt in compartments, gilt title, all edges gilt, red endpapers. Binding slightly rubbed at head and tail of spine and at corners, endpapers darkened at edges, very occasional small pale mark to margins of pages. A very good copy of a very scarce pamphlet. General Sir John Doyle (1756-1834), was one of the four sons of Charles Doyle of Bramblestown, Ireland. A graduate of Trinity College, Dublin, he served with the British army in the United States. When the Civil War ended there in 1784, he returned to Ireland where he was elected Member of Parliament for Mullingar and proved himself an eloquent speaker in the pre-Union, Irish House of Commons. Sir John raised the famous 87th Regiment in 1794 to serve in the Netherlands. He served as a brigadier general with Abercrombie in Egypt in 1800, distinguished himself, and was made a baronet in 1805, and a full general in 1819. At one time he was Private Secretary to the Prince of Wales. When he retired he was appointed Governor of Guernsey where his able administration, assisted by a nephew, also John Doyle, is commemorated by an impressive column. In this speech Doyle addresses a court convened in the London headquarters of the East India Company to defend and eulogise his life-long friend Lord Hastings (1754-1826), recently retired from his highly successful and highly praised 9 year post as Governor General of India. Lord Hastings' last years of office were embittered by discussions on a matter notorious at the time, namely, the affairs of the banking-house of W. Palmer and Company. The whole affair was mixed up with insinuations against him especially charging him with having been motivated by favoritism towards one of the partners in the firm. From imputations made by the Resident at the court of the Nizam Charles Metcalfe which were inconsistent with his whole character and which were repeated by directors of the Company he was subsequently exonerated. The whole affair as well as Lord Hastings' huge achievements in India for the Company and for the Government are analysed in depth by Doyle.

        Der Eislauf oder das Schrittschuhfahren, ein Taschenbuch für Jung und Alt. Mit Gedichten von Klopstock, Göthe, Herder, Cramer, Krummacher etc.

      Nuremberg: Campe, 1825. 8vo (172 x 98 mm). [2] leaves, 180 pp. Six etched plates, including frontispiece, by Johann Adam Klein. Wove paper, the plates on thick card paper. Light foxing to the plates. Publisher's illustrated paper boards (soiled, darkened, and rubbed with a couple of losses to paper), bright green edges. Provenance: twentieth-century bookplate of "Dr. Sträguber."*** First Edition of a notoriously rare ice-skating book, beautifully illustrated, and in its original illustrated binding. Ice-skating became popular among the bourgeoisie in Germany in the late 18th century. The earliest German book on ice-skating was by Gerhard Ulrich Anton Vieth, whose anonymously published and extremely rare Ueber das Schlittschuhlaufen appeared in 1790. One or two other publications preceded the present tribute to the pastime, which is the most detailed and elaborately illustrated early work of the genre, and "the first book in any language to describe skating with a partner" (Hines). The author and compiler Zindel approaches the sport, or art, both technically and lyrically. Part one contains instructions for equipment, proper form and technique, safety precautions, exercises, meeting-places, and instructions for ice-dancing in a group. The second part, called an Anhang or Supplement but taking up nearly half of the book, contains 27 literary pieces (previously published). Most are by Friedrich Gottlieb Klopstock, whose 1764 poem "Der Eislauf" (the first poem in the section) helped launch the vogue for ice-skating; others are from Goethe (also a passionate skater), Carl Friedrich Cramer and Johann Gottfried Herder. The final chapters provide a brief history of ice-skating, accounts of recent iceskating races, speed records, and ice festivals, and finally, news of the latest Parisian fashions for ice-skating attire, for both ladies and gentlemen. Zindel's book was praised by Lanckoronska and Rümann as a notable exception to the generally indifferent quality of late Romantic gift books, children books, and Taschenbücher (p. 164), "particularly because of the fine illustrations by the Nuremberg engraver Johann Adam Klein." Klein's frontispiece depicts dozens of skaters on the Nuremberg lake, the Dutzendteich. The other plates show an assortment of skates with different kinds of attaches, a front and back view of the costume and posture of the "Schrittschuhfahrer" (lead skater), men skating in groups and "ice-waltzing", and a woman being pushed in a skate-chair. The illustrated binding shows on each cover six of the signs of the zodiac, above and below an allegorical scene, of the winds blowing down snow on a crowd of skaters on the front cover, and the god of Winter giving an order to his minions on the lower cover. Zindel's choice of vocabulary to describe the art of ice-skating was laden with poetic resonance. In German, the usual words for ice skates and ice-skating were by this time (as they still are) Schlittschuhe and Schlittschuhfahren. This was a distortion of the original word Schrittschuh, derived from Old Saxon skridsk h, and Old High German scritiscuoh. Klopstock in particular, who is addressed by Cramer in a letter included in this edition, as "O Klopstock, great Apostle of Ice-skating!" (p. 99), energetically defended the use of the r rather than the l, on rather different grounds, as reported by Goethe in Dichtung und Wahrheit (Book 5, Part 3), where he related Klopstock's insistence that the word derived from the verb schreiten, to stride, "indem man, zum Homerischen Göttern gleich, auf diesen geflügelten Sohlen über das zum Boden gewordene Meer hinschritte..." (because, like Homeric gods, on these winged soles one strides forward over the lake, [which has] become the ground"). A supposed 1824 edition with the same imprint, listed in some bibliographies, is a ghost. Klein's engravings were reprinted in 1925 as the annual book for the Friends' Circle of the Berlin State Art Library, and a modern facsimile edition of the present edition was published in 1980. OCLC lists two copies in American libraries, at Yale and MIT.

        The English Spy: An Original Work, Characteristic, Satirical and Humorous. Comprising Scenes and Sketches in Every Rank of Society, Being Portraits of the Illustrious, Eminent, Eccentric, and Notorious.

      London: Sherwood, Jones and Co. [through 1826], 1825. First Edition. Supposed First Issue (with plate 28 , vol. I, misdated 1284 and p.222, vol. II, blank) of one of the finest English color plate books, complete in two volumes. (Abbey and Tooley disagree, with Abbey arguing that these points are without bibliographical value.) Royal 8vo: xiii,417; xv,[1],399,[1]pp, with 71 hand-colored aquatints by Robert Cruikshank, Rowlandson, and others; 1 uncolored woodcut plate and 74 wood engravings in text. Bound in full crimson levant morocco, covers framed with French fillets, elaborately gilt-tooled spines and dentelles, marbled end papers, all edges gilt. the binding exquisite. Light bumping and wear to several corners, mild offsetting from plates, very occasional foxing, still an excellent copy inside and out, the binding exquisite, the plates vividly colored. Abbey Life 325. Tooley 504. Prideaux, p. 310. Martin Hardie, pp. 191-92. Originally published in 24 monthly parts, The English Spy provides a vivid panorama of English high- and low-life, "a veritable chronique scandaleuse of the time. In the pages of this extraordinary work figure all the notables of the day, either openly or under slight disguise" (Hardie). Described by Prideaux as "perhaps the most daring book ever published," as many of the characters, including Lord Byron, Beau Brummell, Pierce Egan, Pea-green Hayne, Henry Brougham, and the Duke of Wellington, were instantly recognizable to its early readers. Most of the plates are by Robert Cruikshank, who figures in the book under the pseudonym "Robert Transit"; two plates are by Thomas Rowlandson, notably "R.--A.'s [Royal Academicians] of Genius Reflecting on the True Line of Beauty at the Life Academy" (featuring portraits of West, Shee, Haydon, Lawrence, Westmacott and Flaxman); a few others were contributed by G. M. Brighty and T. Wageman. The numerous in-text woodcuts are after Cruikshank, Rowlandson, Gillray and Finlay. The lively text is by the journalist (and blackmailer) C. M. Westmacott, notorious as a muckraker and for extorting large sums of money from victims, including royalty, eager to keep their names out of print. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        The Memoirs of Harriette Wilson: Written by Herself.

      WILSON, Harriette .The Memoirs of Harriette Wilson: Written by Herself. London 1825, Printed and Published by T. Douglas 2 Mary Street Hampstead Road. 3 vols, First Editions. Pp Vol 1, (iv) 244; Vol 11, (iv) 239; Vol III, (iv) 239. Complete. Illustrated with hand coloured plates, with a frontis to each volume and plates within the text. Bound uniformly in full blue leather, gilt to the spines in six compartments, gilt turn-ins , top edges gilt with red labels to each volume. Spines and some of the boards now faded to brown. Stamps of Brentano's New York, and Morrell, Binder, London to verso of front free endpapers in each volume. Very handsome bindings , with a minimum of rubbing or other defect. Uncommon. Harriette Wilson [22 February 1786 - 10 March 1845] was the most famous British Regency courtesan of her times, who became the mistress of William, Lord Craven at the age of 15. Later in her extraordinary career she had dealings with Arthur Wellesley, the Duke Of Wellington, who supposedly said" Publish and be Damned" on hearing that Wilson was about to publish these memoirs. Wilson was one of four sisters, three of whom, Amy, Fanny and Sophia also became courtesans. Harriette claims that Amy led them into their careers by her poor example. Wilson also attracted George IV's interest, by writing to him directly. He claimed that he would "do anything to suppress what Harriette had to reveal of Lady Conyngham" who was his mistress. Harriet claims that Frederick Lamb, 3rd Viscount Melbourne assaulted her because of his jealousy of other lovers that she had become acquainted with, (the Duke of Argyle and Lord Ponsonby) and because she had refused his advances. It seems likely that other notable politicians paid to keep their names out of public scrutiny. We find the work interesting because it highlights the hypocrisy of the times; Harriet was a contemporary of Jane Austen, but her volumes of memoirs are a long way from the polite society portrayed in Austen's writing.

Considéré comme le meilleur exposé possible de l'Egypte de la Syrie Ottomane à la fin du XVIIIe siècle, Le voyage de Volney, lequel dura quatre années d'observation, doit tout à la qualité de son auteur, à la fois philosophe et orientaliste ; la narration est différente des livres de voyages classiques, les considérations, remarques et réflexions politiques y sont prédominantes, et la vision politique est déterminante, même lorsque l'auteur décrit les moeurs des habitants, des anecdotes, la situation géographique et commerciale. Par ailleurs, toutes les descriptions servirent de base pour l'expédition d'Egypte de Napoléon. Ex libris Victor Guillebert. Second ex libris fin XIXe Dr. Ch. Le Roy.

The oldest and most complete edition is that of 1799. Illustrated with 3 large folding maps (Syria, Turkey, Egypt) and 5 beautiful folding plates (pyramids, Palmyra, temple of the sun .) (Only two cards and three folding boards in the first edition). Binding half calf icy blonde ca 1840. Back with false nerves adorned with triple boxes, cold fat nets between the nerves. Titres and golden tomatoes. Friction. 5 blunt corners. Considered to be the best possible exposition of Egypt from Ottoman Syria in the late eighteenth century, Volney's voyage, which lasted four years of observation, owes everything to the quality of its author, both philosopher and orientalist; the narrative is different from classic travel books, considerations, remarks and political reflections are predominant, and the political vision is crucial, even when the author describes the habits of the inhabitants, anecdotes, the geographical and commercial situation. In addition, all the descriptions served as a basis for Napoleon's Egyptian expedition. Ex libris Victor Guillebert. Second ex libris late nineteenth Dr. Ch. Le Roy. [ii], 436; [ii], 447 [Attributes: Hard Cover]
