      Wien, Franz Härter, 1823-1825. - Zwei Jahrgänge (27 Hefte) in 9 Bänden (= alles Erschienene). Mit 9 gest. Titeln, 13 gefalt. gedr. Tabellen bzw. Stammtafeln und 53 gest. und lithograph., teils gefalt. Tafeln. Grüne Halblederbände der Zeit mit Rückentitel und -vergoldung. Lesebändchen. 8vo. Ein nach Nebehay/W. vollständiges Exemplar mit insgesamt 66 Beigaben der so praktisch nie vorkommenden Reihe. "Das Werk erschien ursprünglich in 2 Jahrgängen mit 27 Einzelheften und wurde erst später zu 9 Bänden zusammengefaßt [.] Die Kollation dieses für die Geschichte Wiens bedeutenden Werkes ist meist außerordentlich schwierig, da die Anzahl der Kupferstiche und Lithographien schwankt. Als vollständig können Exemplare angesehen werden, die 66-68 Tafeln und Tabellen [.] aufweisen. Die Tafeln 59 (Das Burgtor von Nobile) und 60 (Cortisches Kaffehaus im Volksgarten) sind allem Anschein nach nur einem Teil der ausgegebenen Exemplare beigebunden worden. Aber auch mit 66 Beigaben ist das Werk selten" (Nebehay/W.). - Dekorative Reihe in hübschen Wiener Einbänden der Zeit, innen durchgehend etwas stockfleckig bzw. gebräunt.

        The Interior of the Fives Court, with Randall and Turner Sparring. Engraved by C[harles] Turner after T. Blake

      London: W. Sams, Book & Printseller, to the Royal family opposite St James's Palace, 1825. (BOXING) Third state, the first being produced in 1818. 20 x 26 inches, matted and framed to 27 x 33 inches overall. Hand-colored aquatint with etched outline. . Snelgrove, British Sporting and Animal Prints, p. 48-9, color plate 5; Siltzer, pp. 319, 320, 325; Wilder, Sporting Prints, p. 178, color plate p. 179; Magriel, The Ring and the Glove, pp. 17-18 . A large and important depiction of an exhibition sparring match held in Fives Court, in London's Little St. Martin's Street, a tennis and fives court hired for such events, the participants, unlike a regular, bare-knuckle bout, being fitted with gloves ("mittens" or "mufflers"). The contestants shown were Ned Turner, "The Out-and-Outer", who had killed a man in the ring, serving time for manslaughter, and Jack Randall, "The Prime Irish Lad", unbeaten throughout 12 years of ring activity. The two had fought an epic fight in 1818, which Randall won to become the Lightweight champion. A large number of famous pugilists are pictured in the audience, not always accurately (Jem Belcher, the famed champion and the first real sporting celebrity in the modern sense, is shown, although he was dead), and it is a fair portrait of "The Fancy" as the mix of often raffish sporting professionals, and upscale spectators including nobility, came to be known.

        Wanderings in South America, the North-West of the United States, and the Antilles, in the Years 1812, 1816, 1820, and 1824

      - Walking into Brazil¿ barefoot! 1825. Londres. Applegath for Mawman. In 4to (274 mm x 207 mm). 1 [blank] + vii + 326 + 1 [blank], missing half title. Contemporary half calf, boards blindstamped, spine with raised bands, compartments heavily gilt, red morocco lettering piece, slightly rubbed. A generally fresh and clean copy, with wide margins, scattered foxing spots and offsetting to folio facing frontispiece. First edition of this important source of information on Venezuela and Brazil. Waterton (1781 ¿ 1865) was an English naturalist, taxidermist, and explorer; he was also descendant of one of the foremost British families. In 1804 he began what would be a series on travels to Guiana and South America, he first to take charge of the family estate and the following to explore. The subsequent travels would take him to the deep Guiana and Brazil ¿where he allegedly arrives barefoot. The main field of research for a while was the effects of curare, a local poison, which, applied to darts, would paralyze a person. The work is illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of a ¿nondescript¿ made by Lowry and woodcuts in text; it would eventually influence young naturalists as Darwin and Wallace. Palau, 374216.

        Voyage chez les Kalmuks. Traduit de l'Allemand par M. Moris, Membre de la Société Asiatique.

      C. Cornillac,, Châtillon - sur - Seine, 1825 - In-8° (208x131mm), pp. (1), XXVIII, 361, bella legatura coeva p. pelle marmorizzata con bordura floreale dorata (in parte stinta) bordante i piatti. Dorso con titolo in oro su tassello verde, filetti e fregi ornamentali e floreali in oro. Unghie decorate, tagli e sguardie marmorizzate, segnacolo. Al contropiatto, ex-libris di Eugenio di Savoia Carignano con croce di Savoia coronata. Il personaggio di Casa Savoia in questione è il Principe Eugenio, Conte di Villafranca, figlio del Principe Giuseppe di Savoia, nato a Parigi nel 1816, spentosi a Torino nel 1888. Luogotenente generale del Regno, dapprima fidanzato con Maria Carolina Augusta d'Asburgo, sposò morganaticamente nel 1863 la torinese Felicita Crosio. Una litografia all'antiporta con la festa delle lampade presso i Calmucchi e 11 tavv. in fine di specimen di scrittura e linguistica calmucca. Esemplare assai bello. Sporadiche fioriture. Prima traduzione francese, ridotta rispetto all'originale, di "Nomadische Streifereien unter den Kalmüken in den Jahren 1802 und 1803" (Riga, Ghartmenn, 1804-05), uno dei primissimi resoconti esistenti sulle tradizioni del popolo calmucco e sulle loro credenze religiose, di stampo buddhista-lamaista. I Calmucchi sono una popolazione nomade di ceppo mongolo occidentale e di religione, come si è detto, buddhista-lamaista, stanziata in gruppi distaccati nelle regioni del Volga, presso Astrachan, in Mongolia e nell'Ovest della Cina. Anche la loro lingua è assai simile a quella mongolica, da cui si differenzia soprattutto a livello fonetico; la presente opera è anche una delle prime rigorose ricognizioni glottologiche della lingua calmucca. La traduzione include ex novo l'"Essai sur la fuite des Kalmucs des bord du Volga", basato su un resoconto lasciato da de Weseloff, già prigioniero dei Calmucchi, nonché su lavori di Pallas e di Rytschkov (le fonti da cui la memoria è attinta sono dichiarate nelle note alla p. 259). Bergmann (1772-1856), scrittore e viaggiatore tedesco, soggiornò per un intero anno fra i Calmucchi, seguendo fedelmente le loro tradizioni, apprendendo la loro lingua e studiando, primo tra gli europei, lo sviluppo delle loro arti e delle loro scienze, assai notevole ed in seguito oggetto dell'ammirazione anche di esploratori come Sven Hedin.

      Printed for William Pickering, London; and Talboys and Wheeler, Oxford, Oxford 1825 - In Extraordinarily Handsome Ornate Morocco, andUnusual with Both Johnson's Works and Boswell's Life. 251 x 152 mm (9 7/8 x 6"). 15 volumes. Edited by Francis Pearson Walesby. VERY HANDSOME MID-19TH CENTURY MAROON PEBBLE-GRAIN MOROCCO, LAVISHLY GILT, covers with an intricate frame comprised of three blind and six gilt fillets, the latter flanking an elegant string of gilt floral sprays, mandorlas, coils, and rosette cornerpieces, the large central panel further defined by ornmental cornerpieces connected by a gilt rule; spines lavishly gilt in compartments with central floral bouquet surrounded by swirling vines, leaves, and many small tools, turn-ins with triple gilt fillet, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With frontispiece portraits of Johnson and Boswell and three folding facsimiles of Johnson's writing. A Large Paper Copy. "Works": Courtney & Smith, pp. 166-67; Fleeman 87.3W/22a (vols. I-IX) and 87.3W/1.2/1a (vols. X-XI); Keynes, p. 62; Brunet III, 551; Graesse III, 471; Lowndes II, 1217-18. "Life": Keynes, p. 43; Pottle 90. Just a hint of rubbing to extremities, but the remarkably pleasing bindings essentially unworn and extremely lustrous. Two leaves with small closed tears, perhaps half a dozen pages per volume with a pinpoint fox mark in the margin, one page with a small stain, but a beautiful copy internally, unusually clean, fresh, and smooth, and with expansive margins. AN ESPECIALLY ATTRACTIVE SET. Although William Pickering began his legendary publishing career in 1820, it wasn't until 1825, after a move to larger premises, that he began to produce substantial numbers of high quality editions. In the latter year, Pickering began his association with the Oxford firm of Talboys and Wheeler, and with this association began the series of books known collectively as the Oxford English Classics. According to Keynes, "these handsome volumes were produced at the printing offices of the Oxford partners, but their general design shows clear signs of Pickering's predominating influence. The books are large octavos, well printed on ribbed paper with a fine Oxford device on the title pages." Keynes says that our 11-volume edition of Johnson and the four-volume Boswell's Johnson issued in 1826 "are the most valuable of the series," and singles out this edition of the "Life" for "special merit." Brunet calls the collection of Johnson's works "one of the best, and the most complete to this time." Our Large Paper Copy has stately margins that complement the luxurious bindings, pleasing to the eye and to the touch. The editor, Francis Pearson Walesby (1798-1858), was an Oxford professor. Although the title page of the first volume announces that the set will consist of nine volumes, a 10th and 11th were added, of "Parliamentary Debates." These are Parliamentary reports which Johnson began to make at the age of 32 for the "Gentleman's Magazine.". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A pair of angling prints each captioned with quotes from Horace and Virgil:] Sic omnia retro . [and:] Piscium et summa genus hoesit ulmo .

      Thomas McLean, London 1825 - A handsome and humourous pair of angling prints. The first image shows a fisherman with a slack line just after losing a fish and stepping into a cow pad, with the Virgil caption roughly translated as "Thus all things change for the worse." The Horace quotation is a play on words, substituting "Perchicos" [perch] for "Persicos" [i.e. Persian], and roughly translated as "The finest perch is not for me." The second image shows an angler who has pulled a fish from the water but whose line (and fish) are caught in a tree. The famous fishing-related Horace quotation follows, "The fish was entangled in the elm tree." The Virgil quotation refers to the climbing into the river to free his line and can be read as "courage to tempt the raging stream." Aquatint and engraving, coloured by hand. Sheet sizes: 9 3/8 x 11 5/8 inches and 9 1/2 x 11 7/8 inches.

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. Gumuchian 916. <br>See an <A HREF= >Image.</A><br>

        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. .

      Paris J. Carez, Verdière and Bossange 1825 - First Edition of this important atlas of the American continents. A copy printed on thick paper, and the most rare of the issues. Beautifully illustrated with 63 double-page plates coloured by hand including 51 maps. Grand Folio (560 x 385 mm.), bound in handsome contemporary half-morocco. A fine copy in a very pleasing state of preservation. FIRST EDITION OF THIS IMPORTANT ATLAS ILLUSTRATING THE COUNTRIES OF THE TWO AMERICAS WITH ALL MAPS COLOURED BY HAND. The atlas is Buchon&#146;s version of the important Carey and Lea American Atlas issued in Philadelphia in 1822 and then in expanded versions in 1823 and 1825. The text which accompanies the maps is explanatory of the subject matter pictured. The atlas is known for its remarkable precision and was a fundamental source for information about the New World at the beginning of the 19th century, and particularly about the United States. This is also a copy printed on the more desirable and rare best paper used by the publisher. The greatest number of maps related to the United States and its territories and additional maps are included relating to the Caribbean and Latin America. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Paris. . 1825 - 125 leaves, including fifty-one double-page handcolored engraved maps with textual gloss, four double-page handcolored letterpress tables, one double- page engraved plate, title- leaf, dedication leaf, and additional leaves of letterpress text. Large folio. Modern half morocco and boards, vellum tipped corners. Minor soiling, some light foxing, a few repairs, very small old library mark on titlepage. Else very good. This important atlas is based on Carey & Lea's A COMPLETE HISTORICAL.AMERICAN ATLAS, issued first in Philadelphia in 1822, and again in expanded formats in 1823 and 1825. However, it adds even more material than appears in any of the Carey & Lea editions, especially the western maps. Most of the atlas is devoted to the United States and its territories, and incorporates the latest geographical knowledge available, by what was then one of the premier mapping firms in the United States. There are maps of virtually every state, with copious statistics supplied in the margins. The large map of the Arkansas Territory is actually the 1823 Long map of the Great Plains and Mississippi Valley, extending as far west as Santa Fe and the edge of the Rockies, while the map of the whole North American continent and the excellent large detailed map of the United States and territories can lay claim to being the best available to that time.

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.

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 mat. Image size: 4 7/8 x 8 1/4 inches.

        The Magic Ring; a romance, from the German of Frederick, Baron de La Motte Fouqué.

      Edinburgh: by Oliver & Boyd; and Geo. B. Whittaker, 1825 - 3 volumes, 12mo (176 × 104 mm). 19th-century half Japanese vellum, double morocco labels, gilt spines, red sides, endpapers and edges. Rubbed, a little light foxing, chiefly to outer leaves, a good set. With the half-titles. Bookplates of A. J. A. Symons. First edition in English of Der Zauberring (1813), translated by Scott's friend Robert Pearse Gillies. The novel blends medieval quest, epic fantasy and Gothic nightmare, inspired by Germanic folk tales and Icelandic sagas, Arthurian romance and Gothic horror. The book is a clear precursor to William Morris's medieval romances, George Macdonald's spiritual fantasies, and to Wagner's Ring of the Nibelung. Macdonald and Morris are both acknowledged influences on Tolkien, and it has been argued that Tolkien's distaste for Wagner and what his work represented led him to write The Lord of the Rings as a cultural antidote to Wagner. The book is scarce in commerce, no copy having appeared at auction for 15 years. This copy from the library of the book collector and writer A. J. A. Symons, author of The Quest for Corvo.
