        A NEW GENERAL ATLAS, COMPRISING A COMPLETE SET OF MAPS, REPRESENTING THE GRAND DIVISIONS OF THE GLOBE...COMPILED FROM THE BEST AUTHORITIES, AND CORRECTED BY THE MOST RECENT DISCOVERIES

      Philadelphia, 1825. Imperial quarto. Expertly bound to style in red straight- grained morocco, incorporating original marbled paper- covered boards, original orange-toned engraved title label on upper cover, the flat spine gilt in six compartments, divided by horizontal fillets, lettered in gilt in the second compartment, Finley's small format letterpress trade label (2 3/4 x 3 1/2 inches) mounted on front free endpaper. In a modern red cloth box, dark red morocco lettering piece. Provenance: pencil signature on front free endpaper. A fine copy of the second edition (after the first and second issues of the previous year), from one of the greatest American map publisher's of the period. A contemporary review of the first edition applies to the present second: "The number of elegant maps and atlases which have come from the press within a short time in the United States, is a most flattering proof of increased attention of the community to the important study of geography. The present work contains sixty maps, about half of which are devoted to the American continent, and the remainder to other parts of the world, chiefly to Europe. The engraving is done almost uniformly with remarkable distinctness and the face of the maps is frequently beautiful, not overloaded with a confusion of useless names" (NORTH AMERICAN REVIEW, July 1824, pp.261-262). The same points which distinguish the first and second issues of the first edition also distinguish the present edition from the first issue. The most obvious are on the engraved index leaf: the Eastern Hemisphere is listed as number 1 in the first issue and number 2 in the second; in the first issue number 11 is Connecticut and number 12 is Rhode Island; in the second issue number 11 is Rhode Island and number 12 is Connecticut. Little is known of Anthony Finley other than his published work, "but he was probably born around 1790. Judging from contributors to his atlases, he apparently moved in the same Philadelphia circles of engravers and compilers as other contemporary publishers" (Ristow, p.268). This edition of Finley's celebrated atlas is quite rare. Not on OCLC.

        Die VICTORIA REGIA, Ihre Geschichte, Natur, Benennung und Cultur, bearbeitet von Wilhelm Hochstetter, Universitätsgärtner im botanischen Garten zu Tübingen. Mit einem Vorwort von Dr. Hugo v. Mohl, Professor der Botanik und Vorstand des botanischen Gartens in Tübingen. MIt einer colorirten Abbildung.

      Tübingen In Commission in der Buchhandlungzu Guttenberg (August Ludwig)l - 1. Auflage; 4°-Querformat (30 x 44,5 cm); Grüner, chagrinierter Juchtenledereinband; 38 S., 1 Tafel; Etwas stockfleckig, Buchrücken restauriert Seltenes Werk des damaligen Universitätsgärtners Wilhelm Hochstetter (1825-1881) mit einer handkolorierten Lithographie der "Victoria Regia" im Format 30 x 44 cm. Gewidmet dem König Wilhelm von Württemberg, gedruckt bei R. F. Hering & Comp. in Stuttgart (jeweils zwei Seiten auf Querformat). Wilhelm Neubert fasst das Buch 1852 folgendermaßen zusammen: ".und heute liegt.ein ähnliches vor uns, das Herrn Wilhelm Hochstetter . zum Verfasser hat. Es führt den Titel: Die Victoria Regia. . Was die wissenschaftlichen Hülfsmittel anbelangt, die zu Bearbeitung eines solchen Werkchens nothwendig sind, so bot nicht nur die Universitätsbibliothek, sondern auch die Sammlungen mehrerer Gelehrten in Tübingen, besonders aber das erfreulichste Entgegenkommen des für diese Pflanze sich sehr interessirenden Vorstandes des botanischen Gartens, Herrn Hugo v. Mohl, in reicher Fülle die Hand, um in dem kleinen Umfange des Werkchens das Wissenswertheste zusammenzufassen, was von der ersten Entdeckung an darüber bekannt wurde. Was aber die Erfahrungen über die Cultur der Pflanze anbelangt, so erhalten wir . genaue Angaben, die den deutlichsten Beweis liefern, daß die Cultur dieser Pflanze weder mit den enormen Kosten verknüpft, noch so schwierig ist, wie die ersten Nachrichten von England aus uns glauben ließen. Herr Hochstetter . zeigt uns, wie es ihm gelungen, in einem gewöhnlihen niedrigen Warmhäuschen ohne alle künstlichen Einrichtungen die Samen zum Keinem zu bringen . Wer in neuerer Zeit den Tübinger botanischen Garten besuchte, der wird sich überzeugen, daß Herr Hochstetter nich blos bei seiner Victoria, sondern bei allen seinen Pflanzen Fleiß mit richtiger Beurtheilung verbindet, daß er der wahre Pflegevater derselben ist, der sie unseren Verhältnissen anzupassen sucht, der seine Pfleglinge mit Einem Wirte zu erziehen nocht zu verziehen weiß.

        Albert Berg (1825-1884). Santa Maria della Cantena. Aquarell

      - Albert Berg (1825 Berlin-Hallstadt 1884). Santa Maria della Cantena. Aquarell auf Karton. -- Beschreibung: -- Aquarell auf Karton. unten rechts unkenntlich bezeichnet: "Palermo 13 .". -- Größe/Size: -- 28,4 x 38,5 cm. -- Zustand: -- Insgesamt guter Zustand, zwei leichte restaurierte Schnitte in der Mitte. -- Weitere Beschreibung: -- Die Kirche Santa Maria della Catena in Palermo, deren Vorhalle Albert Berg in seinem Aquarell wiedergibt, wurde zwischen dem späten 15. und frühen 16. Jahrhundert erbaut. Das von Matteo Carnilivari im Stile der katalanischen Spätgotik mit frühneuzeitlichen Elementen errichtete graziöse Kirchengebäude liegt am Rande des alten palermitanischen Hafens "La Cala". Aus der Lage am Hafen leitet sich der sonderbare Name der Kirche ab, denn das Hafenbecken wurde früher allabendlich von der Kirche aus mit einer großen Kette zur offenen See hin verschlossen. Die Ansicht des Platzes vor der Kirche zeigt einige architektonische Elemente, die heute nicht mehr vorhanden sind. Das kleine Gebäude direkt an der Treppe unterhalb des Portikus ist heute verschwunden. Auch der Torbogen links, der die Szene einfasst und hinter dem einige Bootsmasten schemenhaft zu erkennen sind, existiert nicht mehr. Es scheint, als habe der heute nicht minder wirksame Reiz der überaus eleganten Architektur den Künstler in seinen Bann gezogen, denn er gab die baulichen Elemente des Portikus besonders sorgfältig wieder, was sich am nuancierten Kolorit ablesen läßt. In diesem für ihn interessanten Bereich der Architektur verwendet er in seiner Wiedergabe die kräftigsten Farben wenig verdünnt. Die Wände der umstehenden Gebäude gleißen im hellen Sonnenlicht Süditaliens auf und verschwimmen zum Rande hin mit der Tönung des Blattes. Der Künstler betont die als Säulenhalle ausgestaltete Vorhalle durch den farblichen Akzent einer dunkelblau-violetten Fläche, die wohl die verschatteten Hänge des Monte Pellegrino umschreibt. Albert Berg, der eigentlich im Jahre 1842 mit einem auf den diplomatischen Dienst vorbereitenden Jurastudium begonnen hatte, reiste ein Jahr später in die Schweiz, nach Oberitalien und Südfrankreich. Dieses Erlebnis war für ihn ausschlaggebend, sich ganz der Landschaftsmalerei zu verschreiben. Unser Aquarell stammt von einer Exkursion, die Berg kurz nach dieser Wandlung unternommen haben muß, etwa Mitte der vierziger Jahre des 19. Jahrhunderts, denn nach der Tour 1843 und vor einer späteren Reise 1849 nach Südamerika soll er in Konstantinopel, Malta und Sizilien gemalt haben. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Friedrich Schulz (um 1825-1875). Erinnerung an Theodor Körner. Bleistift

      - Friedrich Schulz (um 1825 Berlin-Berlin 1875). Erinnerung an Theodor Körner. Bleistift auf Papier. -- Beschreibung: -- Bleistift auf Papier. unten mittig signiert: "Fritz Schulz". -- Größe/Size: -- 25 x 29,1 cm. -- Zustand: -- Sehr guter, altersgerechter Zustand mit leichten Altersspuren. Leicht restauriert. -- Weitere Beschreibung: -- Theodor Körner, Lyriker, Theaterschriftsteller, Soldat im Lützowschen Freikorps und dort mit nur 22 Jahren im preußischen Krieg gegen Napoleon gefallen, wurde nach seinem frühen Tod als Freiheitskämpfer gefeiert. Seine patriotisch-leidenschaftliche Dichtung erlebte hohe Auflagen, zahlreiche Denkmale und "Körnereichen" ehrten ihn als nationales Idol. Ganz im Sinne dieser Verklärung agiert auch die Bleistiftzeichnung, die in romantischerzählerischer Manier den Tod Körners in Anlehnung an die Ikonographie der christlichen Pieta darstellt. Die Signatur "Fritz Schulz", verweist auf Friedrich Schulz, einen in Berlin zur Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts bekannten Künstler, der sich dieser Abkürzung regelmäßig bediente. Fritz Schulz war Schüler Carl Steffecks, einem auf Pferde und Hunde spezialisierten Maler. Tiere also, die sich auch bei Schulz zahlreich und mit großer Lebendigkeit dargestellt finden. Auf den Berliner Akademie-Ausstellungen wurden seine Arbeiten dem militärischen Genre zugerechnet, und dieser Spezialisierung folgend, nahm er in den Jahren 1864, 1866 und 1870/71 als Kriegszeichner an Feldzügen teil. Doch rückte Schulz von der Schlachtenmalerei im herkömmlichen Sinne ab und gab seinen Kriegsbildern eine eher genrehafte Attitüde. Die Bleistiftzeichnung des sterbenden Körners ist typisch für seinen Fokus auf überlieferte Szenen von Persönlichkeiten der preußischen Historie, jenseits des eigentlichen Kampfgeschehens. In eigener Manier verbindet Schulz spätromantische Aspekte wie Nationalgefühl, Konzentration auf das Privateoder die Aufwertung des Erzählerischen mit der bisher ideal vorgetragenen Gattung der Schlachtenmalerei. Theodor Körner stirbt in den Armen zweier Kameraden des Lützowschen Freikorps, die ihn halb aufrichten und seine Wunde mit einem Tuch bedecken. Zwei Pferde und ein weiterer Soldat, bekümmert auf den Sterbenden blickend, schließen die Gruppe nach hinten ab. Am 17. Juni 1813 wurde Körner zum ersten Mal schwer verwundet und schrieb - so die Legende - im Versteck noch das Sonett "Abschied vom Leben" nieder. Wieder genesen und zurück im Krieg, wurde er gut einen Monat später erschossen. Schulz vermischt die Überlieferungen zum inzwischen lange verstorbenen, gleichwohl hoch verehrten Körner, und zeigt den Dichter mit dem Notizbuch in der Hand, über seinem Gedicht sterbend. Die Tradition, einen nationalen Kriegshelden in augenfälliger Anlehnung an Christus zu zeigen, etablierte bereits 1770 Benjamin West in seinem wirkmächtigen Gemälde "Der Tod des General Wolf". Schulz übersetzte den hohen Ton in die bürgerliche Romantik. Er umreißt die Hauptgruppe mit festem Strich, komponiert klar und zeigt Sinn für Einzelheiten. Umgeben sind die Figuren von einer frei, leicht und zügig gezeichneten Landschaft, die den Blick wandern läßt: Nach vorn links zu einem von kleinen Pflanzen umwachsenen Zaun, nach hinten zu zwei Reitern vor einer Tanne und nach rechts zu einer Gruppe von Soldaten unter einem weit ausgreifendem Baum - sicherlich einer Eiche, dem Baum unter dem Körner begraben wurde und der ihm vielfach als Denkmal gesetzt wurde. Schulz zeigt damit keine beliebige Landschaft. Er deutet die Vegetation als nationales Symbol und trägt sie dennoch mit einer zeichnerischen Freiheit vor, die zu den großen Qualitäten dieses Blattes gehört. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

The Mexican War of Independence established a constitutional monarchy based on the Spanish Constitution of 1812. Discontent with the monarch, Agustin I, led to a successful revolution led by General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, who overthrew Augustin I on March 19, 1823. Santa Anna established a provisional government on November 5, 1823. It established a Federal Republican Government on February 3, 1824, which created a constitution enacted on October 4 of 1824. A landmark in the history of Mexico, it established a representative federal republic, the United Mexican States. It was replaced by the Federal Constitution of the United Mexican States of 1857. The Coleccion is a valuable record of the provisional government and its central role in the establishment of modern Mexico.

Durch die Neubindung sauber und gut. Insgesamt ein schönes Exemplar. "Johann Samuel Traugott Gehler (* 1. November 1751 in Görlitz; † 16. Oktober 1795 in Leipzig) war ein deutscher Physiker und Jurist. Johann Samuel Traugott Gehler war der Sohn des Johann Wilhelm Gehler, der Bürgermeister von Görlitz war. Nach dessen Tod folgte der 15-jährige Gehler seinem Bruder nach Leipzig. An der Universität Leipzig erwarb er sich gediegene Kenntnisse in den Naturwissenschaften und alten Sprachen. Er hörte unter anderem bei Johann Heinrich Winckler und Johann August Ernesti. Sein besonderes Interesse aber galt der Mathematik. Dennoch begann er 1768 mit dem Studium der Rechte. Nach diesem Studium arbeitete er 1773/1774 als Hofmeister bei der Erziehung von drei jungen russischen Edelleuten und gab auch Privatunterricht. Dabei erwarb er nebenbei 1774 den Magistergrad und 1776 die venia legendi der Philosophischen Fakultät für das Fach Mathematik. 1777 erlangte er den Doktorgrad der juristischen Fakultät. 1776 lernte er Maria Rahel Christiane Marschall, die Tochter des verstorbenen Wurzener Stiftsrates Johann Christoph Marschall kennen, die er 1777 heiratete. Diese Ehe brachte ihm ein beachtliches Vermögen und einflussreiche Verwandtschaft ein. In der Ehe wurden sechs Töchter und ein Sohn geboren. Gehler befasste sich nun neben seiner mathematischen Lehrtätigkeit mit der Übersetzung und Herausgabe wichtiger physikalischer und mathematischer Werke aus dem Englischen und dem Französischen. 1779 wurde er Mitglied der Oberlausitzischen Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften und 1785 wählte ihn die Leipziger Oekonomische Societät zu ihrem Ehrenmitglied. Titelblatt des Physikalischen Wörterbuchs, Band 1 1783 gab er seine akademische Laufbahn auf und wurde auf Drängen von Bürgermeister Carl Wilhelm Müller Mitglied des Leipziger Rates der Stadt. Als Ratsherr erfüllte er vor allem Aufgaben im Zusammenhang mit der Aufsicht von Handwerksinnungen, verschiedener Kassen und der Eisleben-Mansfeldischen Berg- und Hüttenwerke. 1787 und 1793 vertrat er Leipzig auf sächsischen Landtagen. 1786 wurde er ins Leipziger Oberhofgericht als Beisitzer berufen. Gehler war von Jugend an auch den schönen Künsten zugetan. Schon während des Studiums hatte er mit Gleichgesinnten eine „Gesellschaft dichtender Freunde" gegründet und in einem von dieser herausgegebenen Band „Gedichte" unter dem Pseudonym Hephästion (H-n) einige Verse veröffentlicht. 1776 war er Mitbegründer der Leipziger Gesellschaft Harmonie, in der man sich wöchentlich zu Lektüre, Gesprächen, aber auch Spiel versammelte. Er war auch Mitbegründer der Gewandhauskonzerte, die 1781 aus den „Großen Konzerten" hervorgingen. Bis 1786 war er einer der zwölf ehrenamtlich arbeitenden Mitglieder der Direktion der Gewandhauskonzerte. Physikalisches Wörterbuch Bekannt wurde Gehler vor allem durch sein „Physikalisches Wörterbuch" (mit vollem Titel Physikalisches Wörterbuch, oder Versuch einer Erklärung der vornehmsten Begriffe und Kunstwörter der Naturlehre, mit kurzen Nachrichten von der Geschichte der Erfindungen und Beschreibungen der Werkzeuge begleitet), dessen erste fünf Bände er von 1787 bis 1795, also neben seiner administrativen Tätigkeit, verfasste, und welches das gesamte damalige physikalische Wissen kritisch und verlässlich in alphabetischer Folge vorlegte. Nach seinem Tod wurde es in den Jahren 1825 bis 1845 durch Heinrich Wilhelm Brandes, Leopold Gmelin, Johann Caspar Horner, Karl Ludwig von Littrow, Georg Wilhelm Muncke und Christoph Heinrich Pfaff neubearbeitet und in elf Bänden[3][4] (in mehreren Teilen) verlegt.

        Napoléon, vie de. - Silhouettes. Ensemble de 25 silhouettes retraçant la vie de l'empereur. s.d. (vers 1825). Papier vergé découpé et entièrement noirci à l'encre au recto, 55-105 x 100-200 mm. Numérotation manuscrite au verso, une seule légende manuscrite, également au verso. Les 25 silhouettes ont été placées chacune, à l'époque moderne, entre un feuillet cartonné blanc crème et un feuillet transparent (190 x 255 mm).

      s.d., (ca. 1825), - 21 x 27 cm (le boîtier). Le tout est réuni dans un boîtier cartonné, pièce de titre sur le couvercle, languette de ruban intérieure permettant d'exhausser les feuillets. Très rare collection de silhouettes (ou découpages, en allemand ?Scherenschnitte?) originales, réalisées peu après 1821 et la mort de l'empereur: la qualité du papier vergé utilisé et les caractéristiques des inscriptions au verso (couleur de l'encre, souplesse de la plume et écriture) ne laissent aucun doute. Ce superbe ensemble, réalisé avec autant de finesse dans l'exécution que de naïvité dans la conception, relève de la tradition iconographique populaire, illustrant aussi bien des aspects événementiels que psychologiques de la vie de Napoléon à partir d'anecdotes identifiables et emblématiques, même si le détail de certaines silhouettes trahit une influence des grandes oeuvres peintes à l'époque: la représentation de Napoléon franchissant les Alpes est clairement inspirée du tableau de David et la silhouette montrant Rapp annonçant à Napoléon la défaite des Russes à la fin de la bataille d'Austerlitz reprend distinctement le tableau de Gérard. La collection comprend les pièces suivantes, présentées dans l'ordre spécifié de manière manuscrite au verso de chaque silhouette (nous avons conservé cet ordre, ce qui explique un certain flottement chronologique): 1) Bonaparte au pont d'Arcole (17 novembre 1796) / 2) Passage des Alpes (14-25 mai 1800) / 3) Probablement la reddition de Mantoue, où l'on voit Bonaparte et la silhouette empanachée de Kellerman (2 février 1797) / 4) Un soldat à genoux devant Bonaparte. / 5) Bonaparte dirige la bataille. / 6) Austerlitz: le général Rapp vient annoncer à Napoléon la défaite de l'armée russe (2 décembre 1805) / 7 et 8) Napoléon au bivouac, veille de bataille. / 9) Certainement Napoléon montrant avec admiration le travail de Larrey, peut-être à la bataille d'Eylau où il lui offre sa propre épée en signe de reconnaissance (8 février 1807) / 10) Napoléon devant le tombeau de Frédéric le Grand (25 octobre 1806) / 11) Clémence de Napoléon: grâce du prince de Hatzfeld (octobre 1806) / 12) Essling: adieux de Napoléon à Lannes (22 mai 1809) / 13) Napoléon désigne un soldat à l'attention de deux personnes en civil / 14) Reddition de Vienne (13 novembre 1805) / 15) Napoléon saluant un blessé / 16) ?On ne passe pas!? une sentinelle respecte la consigne et interdit le passage à Napoléon / 17) ?Après vous, sire!? : Un soldat offre à boire à l'empereur / 18) A la barrière de l'Etoile, à Paris (légende inscrite au verso de la silhouette) / 19) Napoléon pointant le canon à Montereau / 20) Vol de l'aigle: le colonel de La Bédoyère entraînant le 7e de ligne en faveur de Napoléon (7 mars 1815) / 21) Les adieux de Fontainebleau (20 avril 1815) / 22) Napoléon à Saint-Hélène / 23) Mort de Napoléon (5 mai 1821) / 24) Tombeau de Napoléon à Sainte-Hélène / 25) Retraite du corps polonais à Leipzig, coupée par l'explosion du dernier pont sur l'Elster (19 octobre 1813).

        THE WORKS OF THOMAS GRAY

      London: Harding, Triphook, and Lepard, 1825. n. Hardcover. 197 x 114 mm (7 3/4 x 4 1/2"). Two volumes. Extremely appealing contemporary red straight-grain morocco, attractively gilt, by Ingalton of Eton (with their ticket on front pastedown), covers with double fillet border enclosing a triple fillet frame with gilt-tooled leafy cornerpieces, central panel enclosed by single fillet with rounded corners; raised bands, spine compartments gilt with leafy frames, turn-ins with dense gilt roll, all edges gilt. With an engraved frontispiece portrait of Gray. First preliminary leaf to volume I with inked inscription, "George Chester Cooper / Given to him by his friend George Pickering / Eton. March. 1830." Just the vaguest rubbing and abrasions to covers, minor foxing to frontispiece and preliminary leaves, but A PRETTY SET IN VERY FINE CONDITION, clean and fresh internally, and in gleaming bindings with virtually no wear. This pleasant set of Gray's poetry apparently bound by Thomas Ingalton of Eton saw very little use at the hands of the Etonian to whom it was presented or those of subsequent owners, judging by its well-preserved state. Little is known about our binder, Ingalton, who is listed by Ramsden under a variant spelling ("Ingleton" and "Inglaton") and with a variant ticket. The gilt tooling here are quite lovely in its simple elegance, the whole showing very nicely. Thomas Gray (1716-1771) was an English poet, letter-writer, classical scholar, and professor at Cambridge University. It is generally accepted that his only peer in 18th century English poetry is Alexander Pope, although his small body of work belied his gifts, which evidently did not include the social. Samuel Johnson told Boswell that Gray "was dull in company, dull in his closet, dull everywhere. He was dull in a new way." But in regard to Gray's "Ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College" (included here), Johnson proclaimed that it "abounds with images which find a mirror in every mind, and with sentiments to which every bosom returns an echo." It is in that poem that we find the immortal aphorism, "where ignorance is bliss, 'tis folly to be wise."

        State of Ireland Letters from Ireland, on the present political, religious, & moral state of that country Republished from the 'Courier' newspaper, with emendations & notes

      London: J. Hatchard & Son; & R. Milliken, Dublin. 1825. 8vo., (2) + 86 + (2)pp., including the half-title and final Appendix leaf, original green cloth-backed boards, a little rubbed, entirely uncut. A very good crisp presentation copy to Lord Eldon, with Eldon's circular armorial bookplate and his usual signature in ink, with the half-title inscribed 'For the Earl of Eldon, Lord High Chancellor, &c. &c. &c. with Captain Kirkman's* most respectful compliments, Courier Office, Feby. 11th 1825'.> First separate edition: apparently scarce. Goldsmiths 24442. But not in Black or Bradshaw. Well represented in libraries in the B.Isles but OCLC finds not a single copy elsewhere. A typical, but nonetheless heart-rending, plea for the London government and absentee English landlords to have pity on Ireland and actively invest in its infrastructure. 'There is the town of Arklow, situated on our eastern coast, about forty miles southward of Dublin. It is a fishing village - population about four or five thousand. It is the property of Earl Carysfort. Earl Fitzwilliam is the chief owner of the surrounding country. These are two absentee landlords. The bar of Arklow is a moveable one, and so peculiarly dangerous and fluctuating in its nature, that even the smallest fishing-craft are confined within it three months out of four; whilst beyond it, what would be wealth to them mocks their view. What is the consequence? There is not a more wretchedly miserable and destitute population in Ireland, than in this very town. Yet a pier, that would not cost more than 10, or, at the outside, £15,000, would remedy the evil, save the father of many a now orphaned family, give a never-failing source and means of industry, and render Arklow one of the most flourishing towns in Ireland'. [pp.71-2]. * It seems logical, therefore, to identify 'Captain Kirkman' as the author of the Letters> themselves. The Courier> newspaper (1792-1842) was a London evening newspaper originally established by a consortium sympathetic with the ideas of the French Revolution, but in 1800 or 1801 was purchased by Daniel Stuart and T.G. Street. During the Napoleonic wars The Courier> was fiercely patriotic and it was said contributed to Napoleon's defeat by ensuring public support for the government's war efforts. In 1823 Stuart still owned a third share of The Courier.>

The National Sports of Great Britain, by Henry Alken. Fifty Engravings with Descriptions. London: Printed for Thomas M'Lean, 1825. First Edition. Royal octavo (10 5/16 x 6 11/16 inches; 262 x 170 mm.). viii, 50 leaves of text. Fifty fine hand-colored softground etched plates by and after Alken, with tissue guards. Some spotting to four text leaves "The Hunter"; "Pheasant-Shooting"; "Fowl Shooting"; "A Prize-Fight" and their facing guards but not affecting plates. Plates dated 1824 and with pre-publication "J. Whatman 1823 & 1824" watermarks. The text is watermarked "1818".Contemporary half red half over pink boards, smooth spine ruled and lettered in gilt, hinges expertly and almost invisibly repaired, all edges sprinkled red. With the bookplate of Joel Spitz on front paste-down. A near fine copy with all the plates bright and fresh.Provenance: FH (crowned monogram stamped on front pastedown). Despite having the same title as the folio of 1821, this work, published at three guineas, contains a different series of plates, some drawn from earlier works. The work includes six plates of horse racing, ten of fox hunting, six of coursing, twelve of shooting, and two of fishing, together with others of poaching and the baiting sports about which Alken himself was so critical. No doubt he believed that representing them as ‘National Sports’ was better than pretending they did not exist. The one sport depicted that does not involve animals is prize fighting. "Alken himself seems to have drawn in colours and engraved the plates, which like most of his book illustrations are peculiarly pleasing on account of their small size. The preface deals with, and condemns, the prevailing practice of baiting animals, although the three last plates depict various forms of this barbarous sport."

A fine and spirited collection of original drawings by Robert Cruikshank for two closely related books.Robert Isaac Cruikshank (1789?-1856), caricaturist and portrait painter, was the older brother of famed caricaturist George Cruikshank, both of whom learned the trade in the studio of their father, the caricaturist and painter, Isaac Cruikshank. "His father's declining health made Robert Cruikshank's assistance in the studio imperative…He did not execute many autographed caricatures until 1818?-19, when the craze for velocipedes (early bicycles) and dandified dressing by men and women attracted his pencil…[His] unflattering caricatures of the species between 1818 and the mid-1820s exposed their superficiality, their self-proclaimed exclusivity, and their often tawdry stratagems for dressing and living on slender means."From 1820 to 1827 Cruikshank produced at least 400 images…In the later 1820s Robert Cruikshank illustrated a number of notable books. Often they were sequels to previous successes to which he and his brother George had contributed…Beyond 1830 the records of Robert Cruikshank's achievements are scanty. Wood-engravings for a number of little books for minor publishers such as William Kidd were collected and reprinted as Facetiae (2 vols., 1831). These run the gamut of familiar subjects—theatre, fashionable life, tourism, witches, and devils…"As a boy Robert Cruikshank had injured his head in a riding accident; to that, as well as to whisky toddies, was attributed his marked decline in the later 1840s. His behaviour became more and more erratic: sober and sensible for weeks at a time, he would suddenly burst forth with some freakish prank or all-night carouse… His family finances deteriorated…During the winter of 1856 Robert Cruikshank caught bronchitis. Unable to throw off the infection, he died on 13 March in his modest lodgings" (Robert L. Patten, ?'Cruikshank, (Isaac) Robert (1789?-1856)?', Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004).

        A practical treatise on rail-roads and carriages

      J. Taylor, London 1825 - Tredgold, Thomas (1788-1829). A practical treatise on rail-roads and carriages, shewing the principles of estimating their strength, proportions, expense, and annual produce. . . . xi, [1, errata], 184pp. Undated 16-page publisher’s catalogue bound in front. 4 engraved plates, including folding frontispiece. London: Josiah Taylor, 1825. 228 x 142 mm. (uncut). Original boards, rebacked in cloth, corners repaired, 19th century bookseller’s label on front cover. Minor foxing and dust-soiling, some offsetting from plates, library stamps, shelf-mark and small circular bookplate on front pastedown and first page of publisher’s catalogue, but very good. First Edition. Along with Nicholas Wood’s Practical Treatise on Rail-Roads (1825), Tredgold’s work represents the first comprehensive work on railway engineering. "In the above, the structural features of roadbed, rails, engines and rolling stock are analyzed, and the evolution of railroads from man-powered and animal-powered to steam-powered locomotion is given. Clear and detailed engravings illustrate Stephenson's pre-Rocket engines, and others with primitive transmission of power from engine to rail" (Dibner, Heralds of Science, no. 182). A conservative in railway matters, Tredgold believed it was "extremely improbable" that trains carrying passengers would travel faster than ten miles per hour. Norman 2092.

        Autograph letter signed "Judith Pasta" to the "Madame la Duchesse" [de Duras]

      2 pp. of a bifolium. Dated Paris, April 29, 1825. Notated in black ink on laid paper with watermark in corporating a shell and the letters "LJ." In French (with translation). Pasta, who is trying to secure a leave of absence from the Théâtre Italien, implores the Duchess to intercede on her behalf. She has sent her a note which contains all the sacrifices that she is willing to make: faced with the impossibility of signing a new contract at present, she offers a three month prorogation of her current contract without any conditions. "I came out of the Opéra only at 5 o'clock, when, against everyone's expectations, Mr. Rossini did not appear. The lawyers, after having spoken a lot, crossed swords a lot, argued a lot, concluded by offering Mr. le Vicomte de la Rochefoucauld to grant me the promised leave, under the condition that I renew my contract. I refused. Finding me so resolute, they engaged me to make some concessions... They finally demanded from me a promise not to sign any contract with the London Theatre before next October, if they granted me the promised leave; and I have given them this promise... After some useless words, they promised to give a detailed report to Mr. le Vicomte. Now the concessions that I didn't want to make to the Adminstrators, I will not know how to refuse... I dare remind you that time is short and that if my offers are accepted, you only have to send me a copy of the note signed by the Vicomte." With one word crossed out. Creased, with two small perforations, at edges and folds; three very small tears to upper and lower edges; minor bleeding, not affecting legibility; very lightly stained at lower inner margins. . This is perhaps Pasta's only surviving letter documenting her prolonged attempts to secure a leave of absence from the Théâtre Italien in Paris to pursue engagements in London, where she had just scored resounding successes. The Italien was then under the adminstrative leadership of (among others) Rossini and the Vicomte Sosthène de La Rochefoucauld, both of whom Pasta mentions here. "News of the soprano's reception in London crossed the Channel, and the impresarios of the Théâtre Italien became uneasy. They realized the impossibility of matching the fees that the King's Theatre could offer, and that London provided a popular singer exceptional potential income from private concerts. They anticipated, quite correctly, that Pasta would want to take advantage of the monetary rewards to be gained in industrialized England. The lady's appearances in Paris substantially contributed to the solvency of the Italien; her absence resulted in dwindled receipts at the box office. The administration desired her services exclusively, but Giuditta began to resent this proprietary attitude. Friction developed as she discovered more and more obstacles being put in the way of her quest for international fame and fortune... The soprano and the Vicomte de La Rochefoucauld had a verbal agreement that permitted her desired 'congé' during May and June of 1825. The understanding was that the singer would devote most of her time to the Théâtre Italien, and sign a multi-year contract. She, however, did not intend to commit herself five years in the future, especially when there were hefty sums to be acquired in England... Giuditta was loyal to Paris, but became increasingly distressed by the proprietary attitude. Rossini repeatedly warned the Vicomte that allowing Pasta's leave would set a dangerous precedent, especially if she were not bound by a new contract. He reasoned, quite correctly, that she did not want to stay in Paris five more years because she had other engagements in mind. Though his word was already given, the Vicomte regretted his promise and relations with the diva deteriorated... Unfortunately no letters from the soprano herself survive from this period; presumably they contained details of the difficulties with the administrators of the Italien, whom Giuseppe [Pasta] called 'our assassins.' A leave for six weeks was granted finally, but the lady had to put up a bond to guarantee her return." Kenneth Stern, Giuditta Pasta, pp. 152, 158, 160. Likely addressed to Claire, Duchess of Duras (1777-1828), a French writer best known for her 1823 novel Ourika, which examines issues of racial and sexual equality. She maintained a renowned literary salon in Paris, and was a close friend of Chateaubriand. A substantial letter from the legendary singer.

        Works, The

      1825-26. The Great Oxford English Classics 'Talboys' Edition of Samuel JohnsonFrom the Celebrated Library of Lord DerbyJOHNSON, Samuel. Works (nine volumes) [together with] Parliamentary Debates (two volumes) [together with] BOSWELL, James. The Life of Samuel Johnson, L.L.D. (four volumes) London: Talboys and Wheeler; and William Pickering, 1825-26. Large-Paper Copy. Complete in fifteen large octavo volumes (9 1/4 x 5 5/8 inches; 235 x 142 mm. Works, 11 volumes) and (9 1/2 x 5 7/8 inches; 241 x 150 mm. Life of Johnson, 4 volumes). Engraved portrait frontispiece in first volume of The Life of Samuel Johnson.Uniformly bound in full contemporary red straight-grain morocco by Hodgson of Liverpool (stamp signed "Hodgson Binder Liverpool" on front free-endpaper), covers with double gilt rules, spines with five raised bands, decoratively ruled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt board-edges and turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. A fine set from the library of Lord Derby with his armorial bookplate on the front paste-down of each volume.Keynes states that the eleven volume Oxford English Classics 'Talboys' edition of Johnson's works issued in 1825 and the four-volume Boswell's Johnson issued in 1826 "are the most valuable of the series…" and he singles out this edition of the "Life" for "special merit." Samuel Johnson (1709-1784), often referred to as Dr. Johnson, was an English writer who made lasting contributions to English literature as a poet, essayist, moralist, literary critic, biographer, editor and lexicographer. Johnson was a devout Anglican and committed Tory, and has been described as "arguably the most distinguished man of letters in English history". He is also the subject of "the most famous single work of biographical art in the whole of literature": James Boswell's Life of Samuel Johnson. Born in Lichfield, Staffordshire, Johnson attended Pembroke College, Oxford for just over a year, before his lack of funds forced him to leave. After working as a teacher he moved to London, where he began to write for The Gentleman's Magazine. His early works include the biography Life of Mr Richard Savage, the poems London and The Vanity of Human Wishes, and the play Irene. After nine years of work, Johnson's A Dictionary of the English Language was published in 1755. It had a far-reaching effect on Modern English and has been described as "one of the greatest single achievements of scholarship". This work brought Johnson popularity and success. Until the completion of the Oxford English Dictionary 150 years later, Johnson's was viewed as the pre-eminent British dictionary. His later works included essays, an influential annotated edition of The Plays of William Shakespeare, and the widely read tale The History of Rasselas, Prince of Abissinia. In 1763, he befriended James Boswell, with whom he later traveled to Scotland; Johnson described their travels in A Journey to the Western Islands of Scotland. Towards the end of his life, he produced the massive and influential Lives of the Most Eminent English Poets, a collection of biographies and evaluations of seventeenth and eighteenth-century poets. Johnson was a tall and robust man. His odd gestures and tics were disconcerting to some on first meeting him. Boswell's Life, along with other biographies, documented Johnson's behavior and mannerisms in such detail that they have informed the posthumous diagnosis of Tourette syndrome, a condition not defined or diagnosed in the eighteenth century. After a series of illnesses, he died on the evening of 13 December 1784, and was buried in Westminster Abbey. In the years following his death, Johnson began to be recognized as having had a lasting effect on literary criticism, and he was claimed by some to be the only truly great critic of English literature.Courtney & Smith.

        Veda Vyasa (?). A Vernacular version of the Tenth Book of the Bhagavata Purana. Manuscript.

      Punjab (probably), Samvat 1825 (= 1768-69). 23 x 15 cm. The original painted clothcovers over cardboard preserved but partly at edges covered with a later rebinding in persian style in brown leather with flap. Covers and flap preserved but detached from spine. The 6 painted miniatures on frontcover are in rather bad shape (depicting Krishna in many colours and with gold). 6 miniatures on inside froncover are in better shape, many colours with gold (Krishna and a Guru ?). Backcover with 2 large miniatures in rather bad shape, multicoloured (a Guru and Visnu ?). On inside backcover 6 miniatures, multicoloured and with gold (probably depicting local dignitaries, perhaps royals with text on 4). Native polished paper 22,8 x 15 cm. Text in black ink within triple framed borders in orange, red and black (17 x 10 cm.). 15 lines of text per page in Gurmukhi script and Indian vernacular and seems to be written in one hand. Stitching occasionally loose and broken. Some folios frayed in margins. 2 flyleaves (blank, but framed with coloured borders on both sides). FF 493 of text, numbered 1-493 (493 recto: colophon - verso blank) + 1 unnumb. leaf (recto blank, text on verso where the date Samvat 1825 is given, stating that the finishing of the manuscript took place 1768-69). At end one leaf blank with borders, but torn. The manuscript appears to be complete.The 87 fine miniatures in the text, Pahari style of the Punjab Hills, probably a rough form of Basohli or Jammu, are well preserved, all under small original tissue-guards and they are labourously painted in blue, white, green, red, purple and gold. A few of the miniatures are floral but most depicts the feats of Krishna.Miniature sizes: 7 miniatures (8-5 x 4-6 cm.) - 4 full-page miniatures (17 x10 cm.) - 58 half-page miniatures - 13 miniatures in 1/3-page - 3 miniatures in 1/4-page. - 2 miniatures (5 x 4 cm.).. An extremely scarce, large, early and profusely illustrated Indian manuscript. The tenth book, dedicated to Krishna, is responsible for the widespread popularity of the Bhagavata Purana. Book Ten includes the most enduring images and stories of Krishna: the mischievous child who steals butter; the God as a child who holds the entire universe within himself; the boy who can slay demons and move an entire mountain with one finger; the cowherd who is the love of all the gopis, making them leave all their duties to follow him.The tenth book is by far the lengthiest, taking up almost one quarter of the entire Bhagavata. While the Mahabharata and the Bhagavad Gita show Krishna in various roles as teacher and diplomat, book 10 shows Krishna simply engaging in lila, or divine and intimate play with his devotees. It presents this intimate relationship with God as the highest goal of human existenceThe Bhagavata is widely recognized as the best known and most influential of the Puranas, and is sometimes referred to as the "Fifth Veda" along with itihasa and other puranas. It is unique in Indian religious literature; for its emphasis on the practice of bhakti, compared to the more theoretical bhakti of the Bhagavad Gita; for its redefining of dharma; and for the extent of its description of God in a human-like form. It is also the source for many of the popular stories of Krishna's childhood told for centuries in the Indian subcontinent. The intense and personal bhakti described in the Bhagavata is directed toward Krishna as Vishnu in human form. The tenth book (or canto) of the Bhagavata is dedicated to Krishna, takes up about one quarter of the entire Bhagavata. It includes the most comprehensive collection of stories about the life of Krishna, showing him in all the stages and conditions of human life. It also includes instruction in the practice of bhakti, an analysis of bhakti, and descriptions of the different types of bhakti. Many Vaishnavas consider Srimad Bhagvatam to be non-different from Krishna and to be the literary form of Krishna

Some of the usual light foxing to a few of the plates, most pronounced on plate 17 but very good, well-defined impressions with depth. Considered to be Blake's masterpieces as a printmaker and one of his greatest achievements. As Ray writes in the Illustrator and the Book in England, "the modest size of the central panels does not prevent them from ranking with the supreme masterpieces of graphic art". The title page, along with the borders of each plate, were added after the central images. The title page isn't numbered by the others are in the top right hand corner. All the plates are dated March 8, 1825 except Plate 1 which is mistakenly dated 1828. This edition of 65 proofs on French paper is the rarest of the three states. There were also 100 copies on wove paper without the word proof and 150 copies on India paper.
