        Simples Histoires, trouvees dans un pot au lait. 8 Volumes

      Paris: Lefuel. 1825. First Edition, eight volumes each with one engraving PRINTED IN COLOR, heightened by hand, original white wrappers printed with color lithographs housed in original double-compartment box with lithograph printed in color on cover (lid), gold foil which is stamped bordering edge of box, original pink and blue ribbon pulls. Page size: 6 x 4". The eight volumes are titled: The Little Milkmaid, The Little Schoolgirl, The Little Flower Seller, The Little Harvester, The Little Savoyard, The Little Shepherd, The Little Boatman, and The Little Firewood Gatherer (5 girls and 3 boys). Each volume has an engraving printed in color of a child dressed in the manner suiting the occupation in the title. The neo-classic colored bordered lithographs on the covers of each title have elements of the occupation included, such as flowers in La Petite Marchande des Fleurs and fish, seashells, and seaweed in The Little Boatman. The text of this charming children&#39;s set is titled Simple Stories, and they are just that, clearly meant for young readers. This is an extraordinarily fine set of this early French children&#39;s title. Gumuchian listed it at 3000FF and pictured it twice. The color printing is of a very high quality and unusual for this period. The box and books have an immediately discernable freshness and charm heightened by the fine condition. It is very rare to find all eight parts of this set in fine condition, not to mention the original box.

        A New View of Society: or, Essays on the Formation of the Human Character, Preparatory to the Development of a Plan for Gradually Ameliorating the Condition of Mankind to which are Prefixed Rules and Regulations of a Community [bound with] An Address to the Inhabitants of New Lanark, The First of January, 1816, at the Opening of the Institution established for the Formation of Character

      Cincinnati: Published by Luman Watson. Looker & Reynolds, Printers / Printed by S.J. Brown at the Emporium Office, for Luman Watson. 1825. First. "First American edition from the Fourth London edition" of the first title (one of two 1825 issues, the other published in New York), and first American edition of the second title "From the Fourth London Edition." Original or contemporary wrappers. 84pp., 56pp. Wrappers are encased in a homemade dustwrapper (and the fragility of the dustwrapper is such that we have not removed it), constructed from the April 27, 1827 issue of the Boston Record and Telegraph (predating by two years the first known publisher&#39;s dustwrapper). Wrappers beneath appear to be green, and we assume unprinted. Slight foxing to the text, else near fine, the dustwrapper is a little worn at the folds, but still very good or better. Ownership signature of the Rev. William Andrus Alcott with his library number ("Wm. A. Alcott, No. 372") on the title page of the first work. Alcott, (1798-1859) was a pioneer educational reformer (as was Owen), an early promulgator of the vegetarian movement (he founded and was the first president of the American Vegetarian Society), a bestselling self-help author, and a cousin and close friend of Bronson Alcott.The most important work by the founder of the utopian socialist movement, in a rare western edition, issued the same year that Owen founded his utopian community in New Harmony, Indiana. Owen, a successful, Welsh-born mill owner in New Lanark, Scotland, reformed the living conditions in which his workers lived, and founded the cooperative movement, in which workers would benefit from the savings of bulk purchases that Owen made of food and other commodities. He also founded "infant schools" and greatly reformed education for the children of the poor and working class. When his partners in the mill became concerned that he wasn&#39;t maximizing profits, he re-organized the company with more sympathetic partners that included Jeremy Bentham, and embarked fulltime upon philanthropy and in espousing the philosophical and practical underpinnings used in creating utopian communities.This is by far the rarer of the two American printings published in 1825. OCLC locates six confirmed copies of this edition (compared to nearly thirty of the New York printing). Printing and the Mind of Man 271. Rare and important, and intriguing in this near-contemporary custom jacket. .

        Scraps From the Sketch-Book of Henry Alken

      London: Thomas M'Lean, 1825. - Very Scarce AlkenWith Forty-Two Hand-Colored PlatesEngraved by Alken HimselfALKEN, Henry. Scraps From the Sketch-Book of Henry Alken. Engraved by Himself. Containing Forty-Two Plates. London: Thomas M'Lean, 1825. Fourth edition (plates dated 1820), complete; preceded by those of 1821, 1822, and 1823, but of greater rarity. Tall octavo (10 x 8 1/4 in; 254 x 210). Title leaf (verso blank), and forty-two hand-colored engraved plates, twelve with multiple images. Contemporary half crimson morocco over paper boards. Original red leather title label lettered in gilt to upper board. Small bookplate to front free-endpaper. A fine copy of an extremely scarce album by Henry Alken.This edition of 1825 has not been seen at auction since 1968. The last copy of the first edition of 1821 came to auction in 1970; the 1822 edition in 1969. OCLC records only one copy of the 1821 edition held in library holdings worldwide (at the British Library) and three copies of the edition of 1823. There are no copies of the edition under notice in institutional holdings across the globe.While Siltzer notes an Alken Sketch Book of 1820 (34 plates), and the Scraps. edition of 1822, he makes no mention of an 1825 edition. It is not in found in Tooley or Abbey in any edition.The "Scraps" include equestrian, hunting, dog, bowling scenes, etc. In short, each print features a sporting tableau.Of Alken, Siltzer wrote, "It took but a short time for the leading art publishers of London to recognize his genius and to discover that they had 'struck a reef' of both artistic and financial value, and the well-known firms of Thomas M'Lean, S. and J. Fuller, and Rudolph Ackermann were not slow to reaping full benefit. It appears that Alken himself occasionally engraved plates, and thus added to the facility of production."Cf. Siltzer, p. 71.

        Coursing.Hilloo! Hilloo!

      Printed for Thomas M'Lean, Haymarket by Howlett and Brimmer, 10 Frith Street, London 1825 - A pretty aquatint depicting coursing from Henry Alken's celebrated book "The National Sports of Great Britain". This charming print by Henry Alken comes from a book entitled "The National Sports of Great Britain". The book is comprised of fifty coloured aquatints of sporting scenes with an accompanying text. Published in 1824 by Thomas McLean, the images vary in subject from Bull baiting to Otter hunting. This charming print is third in a series of six coursing prints. Henry Thomas Alken was born into what became an artistic dynasty. He studied under the miniature painter J.T. Barber and exhibited his first picture (a miniature portrait) at the Royal Academy when he was sixteen. From about 1816 onwards he "produced an unending stream of paintings, drawings and engravings of every type of field and other sporting activity. He is best remembered for his hunting prints, many of which he engraved himself until the late 1830s. To many, sporting art is 'Alken', and to describe his work or ability is quite unnecessary." Charles Lane British Racing Prints 75-76; Tooley, English Books with Coloured Plates no. 43; Siltzer, T he Story of British Sporting Prints. Coloured aquatint. Printed with publishers details and dated 1824. In excellent condition. Framed in attractive wood and gold frame with cream wash-line mount. Image size: 4 3/4 x 8 1/8 inches.

      London: John Murray,, 1825. during the Recent Voyage of Discovery under Captain Parry. Octavo (208 x 131 mm). Turn-of-the-century blue half morocco, marbled boards, raised bands to spine, titles and decorations to compartments gilt, single rules to boards gilt, top edge gilt, others trimmed, marbled endpapers, by Zaehnsdorf. Frontispiece and 6 plates engraved by Edward Finden, one engraved folding map. Spine very lightly sunned, minor wear to extremities, corners gently bumped, mild offsetting from turn-ins, light foxing to prelims, endmatter, plates and adjacent pages, folding map slightly tanned with short closed tear to stub and some minor nicks to margins. An excellent copy. This copy is the second edition, which was published a year after the first edition. When William E. Parry (1790-1855), commanding the H.M.S. Fury, set out on his second North West Passage expedition in 1821, Lyon (1795-1826) accompanied him and served as captain of the H.M.S. Hecla. Lyon&#39;s account of the 1821-3 expedition touches briefly upon the harsh conditions of such a voyage, but otherwise is largely "devoted to the narration of the peculiarities of the Aborgines of the Arctic region. Captain Lyon&#39;s curiosity led him to observe with great attention the habits of life and traits of character of the different tribes of Esquimaux, who were attracted by his humane management to his winter quarters" (Field). This copy from the library of the Money-Coutts family with their bookplate to front pastedown, dated 1889 signed J.D.B., i.e. John Dickson Batten (1860&#150;1932).

The C minor sonata was engraved in Paris [for the first edition by Schlesinger], and very inaccurately; and as it was engraved again here, I made certain so far as possible that it would be correct."
