This set includes all half - titles, but was bound without the engraved portrait of Johnson often present in first or third volumes.Published in the series 'Oxford English Classics', this edition was supervised by Francis Pearson Walesby (1798 - 1858), Fellow of Lincoln College and later Professor of Anglo - Saxon at Oxford. The set was originally to comprise nine volumes (see titles); the tenth and eleventh volumes containing the 'Debates' were issued as supplements.Volume one contains Murphy's 'Essay', first published separately in 1792. In volume nine, 'Journey' retains the dates of August 13 ('Lough Ness') and September 20 ('Skye'), but corrects the error about the Macleods.Courtney & Nichol Smith pp.166 - 7; CBEL II, p.614

Il fascicolo numero 13, composto da pp. IV + 44 sembrerebbe mancare della prosecuzione perche' il testo si interrompe. Probabilmente il fascicolo e' completo in se' ed il testo andava completandosi con il fascicolo seguente che e' il 14o a noi mancante. Manca inoltre nel nostro esemplare il ritratto inciso. Esemplare molto bello, fresco e genuino, che conserva perfettamente integre le brossure editoriali. Interessante raccolta delle cause difensive di questo avvocato nato a Bologna, protagonista di processi che ebbero grande eco nella Bologna del tempo, come quelli al marchese F. Albergati Capacelli per uxoricidio e a Girolamo Lucchini, imputato del 'grande furto' commesso nel Monte di pieta' nel 1789 (entrambe presente qui). Fra le altre cause presenti quella contro Vittoria Fabiani accusata d'infanticidio, Antonio Roversi, accusato di omicidio, Vincenzo Pozzi accusato di omicidio passionale, Pietro Rimondi imputato di fabbricazione e smlatazione di falsa moneta, la difesa del conte Vincenzo Porti segretario di stato della Duchessa di Modena.

        A JOURNAL OF A TOUR AROUND HAWAII, THE LARGEST OF THE SANDWICH ISLANDS. BY A DEPUTATION FROM THE MISSION ON THOSE ISLANDS

      Boston. 1825.. 264pp. plus four plates and folding map. Engraved portrait frontispiece. Original plain boards. Spine bit chipped, contemporary presentation inscription on front free endpaper. Overall a very good, crisp copy in original state, untrimmed. In a blue cloth slipcase. An important early account of Hawaii by a visiting group of London missionaries in company with Rev. William Ellis. Ellis, a British missionary, established the first printing press in the South Seas, and while on Hawaii, he and Hiram Bingham printed the first book there in 1823, a hymnal. "Rev. Ellis and three of the American missionaries, Asa Thurston, Artemas Bishop and Joseph Goodrich, were dispatched for the purpose [to learn more of the Hawaiian people with a view to establishing mission stations in Hawaii] in June, 1823, landing at Kailua and spending two months in making the circuit of the island. They were the first white men to visit the volcano of Kilauea. Upon the return of the party to Honolulu, a joint JOURNAL of the expedition and observations was prepared by Ellis. Copies of this, together with a report by the American missionaries, were printed in Boston in 1825..." - Hill. The handsome engraved plates depict Kuakini, governor of Hawaii; a missionary preaching to natives; the great crater at Kilauea; the burial house of Keave; and Makoa a guide to the deputation of missionaries. The map of Hawaii is improved from that of Vancouver. The appendix contains biographical information about persons mentioned in the text, geographical data, names of the former gods of Hawaii, and an alphabet and vocabulary of the Hawaiian language. Ellis later rewrote portions of this work, adding further observations, which were published collectively the following year in London as NARRATIVE OF A TOUR THROUGH HAWAII. A beautiful copy of this missionary account of the island of Hawaii, one of the earliest and probably the best of such accounts. STREETER SALE 3751. HILL 545 (ref).

        Esquisse de la Ville de Sydney, Capitale des Colonies anglaises, à la Nouvelle-Hollande

      Paris: Pillet Aine, 1825. Engraved map measuring 320 x 237 mm. (plate size), a very good copy, framed. Detailed and finely engraved map of the budding settlement at Sydney Cove, from the official published account of the Uranie voyage of 1817-1820 to Australia and the Pacific commanded by Louis de Freycinet. This map depicts Sydney in 1819, when Freycinet and his party spent several very pleasant weeks anchored in the harbour, Louis and Rose became close friends of the Governor, Lachlan Macquarie and his family. Freycinet was astounded by the growth of the settlement and the quality of the architecture he encountered, having previously visited Sydney Cove as an officer on the Baudin voyage of 1800-1804.The detail of this map reflects the curiosity of the French visitors who enjoyed the warm hospitality now that Britain and France were at peace and they could inspect the settlement unhindered.The map details a number of landmarks that remain familiar to this day, including Hyde Park, Woolloomooloo and the Botanical Gardens. Indeed, the street plan engraved here remains largely unchanged as the central business district of Sydney today. The map is a remarkable visual record of Sydney.

Albany: Packard & Van Benthuysen, 1825. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition. "From a scientific viewpoint this is the most important American publication in the field of aviation, for it is the first printed suggestion of the correct theory of the heavier than air machine" (Honeyman 1475). In this uncommon work, Genet contemplates steam being applied to aeronautics and the plates include a depiction of an Aerostatic Vessel. It is further described in the Streeter sale as: "extremely rare and important, the first book printed in the United States on practical aeronautics and on the first patent for an aeronautical invention, by the then-naturalized former Ambassador from France and key figure in the Genet Affair" (Streeter 3974). Some foxing throughout on account of the paper stock, minor staining or soiling to boards; overall in superb condition. Howes G100. See: Brockett 356 for later reprint only. Honeyman Catalogue 1475.

      London: J. Taylor, 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 publisherâ??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 booksellerâ??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 publisherâ??s catalogue, but very good. First Edition. Along with Nicholas Woodâ??s Practical Treatise on Rail-Roads (1825), Tredgoldâ??s work represents the first comprehensive work on railway engineering. â??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 railâ? (Dibner, Heralds of Science, no. 182). A conservative in railway matters, Tredgold believed it was â??extremely improbableâ? that trains carrying passengers would travel faster than ten miles per hour. Norman 2092..

Contemporary full calf, gilt rules. Originally published in London in 1724, and first published in the United States in 1814. A pseudonymous work attributed to Daniel Defoe based on scholarly comparison to his other writings. This edition removes the description of Magadoxa in Ethiopia, and adds a section treating piracy in the West Indies from 24 January 1821 to 16 May 1825, as well as an engraved frontispiece depicting pirates commandeering a ship (oddly, one is armed with a hammer, the other with an axe). Sabin 32197, Howes C-144. Neither Sabin nor Howes attribute this publication to 'Capt.

        De La Perouse: or, The Desolate Island [et al, including "Guy Mannering"]

      Theatre Royal, Drury Lane: Tabby Printer, 1825. Folio playbill on wove paper, 330 x 195 mm., in fine condition. La Perouse on the English stage. Rare playbill for the performance of the popular South Seas utopian melodrama based on the wreck of La Pérouse, in London on Saturday 19 November 1825. Peter Dillon did not confirm the wreck of La Pérouse's two ships on Vanikoro until 1827, but as this playbill confirms, interest in the French explorer was undiminished: the show 'will be repeated every Evening till further notice.'European fascination with the whereabouts of the lost French Pacific explorer - and the often fantastic, utopian explanations of his disappearance - continued well into the nineteenth century and even persisted after discovery of the expedition's fate. In the best pantomime traditions, the dramatis personae includes Theodore, son of La Perouse played by Miss Lane, and a surely compelling performance by Master Wieland as 'Chimpanzee, an Animal of the Desolate Island'. Any number of important hints about the production can be gleaned from the playbill, notably that the overtures and music were by Davy and Moorhead, the dresses by Mr. Banks and the Misses Smith, and the "Machinery and Properties" by Nall and Kelly. A note also says that the "new scenery" is by Marinari, Roberts and Stanfield; interestingly, the list of eight major scenes including "Storm and Shipwreck" and "Perouse's Hut and Drawbridge" notes the name of the principal artist in each case. Some idea of the spectacle may be gleaned from a few surviving graphic sources. Ferguson records a copy of an 1808 prospectus for the pantomime (see Ferguson 464b). McLaren notes a few examples of similar playbills including another Drury Lane announcement for December of the same year (340).
