        The Works of Lord Byron

      London: John Murray, 1825 Six volumes. Early set of Byron's works. Finely bound in contemporary full teal calf, with three raised bands to the spines, contrasting black and brown spine labels, spine lettered and decoratively tooled in gilt, boards ruled and decorated in gilt, board edges tooled in gilt, brown sprinkled page edges, brown marble endpapers. About near fine, with some light wear to the extremities, a few minor chips to the spine ends, light rubbing to the hinges, a hint of toning to the spines, some light wear and minor scratching to the otherwise bright boards, Volume I with a short spilt to the front paper hinge, otherwise sturdy and intact bindings, former owner's bookplates to the front pastedowns, a few faint traces of scattered spotting to the otherwise very bright and fresh pages. A lovely set, free of any repairs or restoration. The Works of Lord Byron is an early collection of Lord Byron's poetry, published the year after his death in 1824. Like many sets of Byron's works, this set was published by John Murray II, the son of the founder of the John Murray publishing house. Poet and publisher were first acquainted when Murray received Byron's manuscript for the first two cantos of Childe Harold's Pilgrimage in 1811, which he subsequently published in 1812. Murray, known for a boldness that helped bring his father's publishing house to the forefront, drew major attention to Byron and Childe Harold, thereby securing a lifelong friendship with the poet. Indeed, Bryon later gave his publisher the nickname the "Anak of publishing." Murray published his first collection of Byron's works in 1815 in four volumes under the title The Works of the Right Honorable Lord Byron, a set which was expanded to eight volumes in the years following publication. In 1819, Murray published a new collection of Byron's works in three volumes under the title The Works of Lord Byron, which was later published in four volumes in 1823 and extended into 6 volumes by 1825. This set is an early copy the six volume edition with all volumes published in 1825, the table of contents from the first volume containing only 4 volumes, which indicates that the sheets may have been printed for the 1823 four volume set, making it an early state of the 1825 set.. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        Autograph letter signed

      28 October, [Paris] 1825 - Five-page autograph letter, folded to letter-size 224 x 171 mm., the sixth page blank; neatly written with some original scratching-out and corrections; secured together at the left margin; in fine condition. Cashmere fantasies: Bory de Saint-Vincent still scheming. A long letter from Bory de Saint-Vincent to an unknown correspondent ("Mon cher ami") mentioning in passing his experiences on the Baudin voyage, and his own exploration of the islands of the Indian Ocean (published as Voyage dans les quatres principales iles des mers d'Afrique, Paris, 1804), as qualifications for his involvement in a proposed project for the collection and marketing of exotic wools, and also for writing material for a contemporary French journal concentrating on the "nouveau monde". From the context it seems likely that his correspondent is the editor of that journal. There is some mention of the Americas, of Colombia especially. Bory mentions the breeding of merinos in France, talks about llamas, camels, Tibet, cashmere, among many other references to the subject, apparently soliciting a commission to write an article on the subject as well as to be the leading light in a new venture. 'J'ose croire que je suis la personne la plus en état de conduire a bien une telle entreprise, j'ai déjà fait mes preuves comme voyageur avec Baudin, et en faisant connaitre les Iles d'Afrique' ('I dare say I am the single person most suited to run such an enterprise, having proved myself as a voyager with Baudin and by making known the Islands of Africa').To the extent that the scheme seems hare-brained, it should probably be read in the context of Bory de Saint-Vincent's difficult later life in Paris and its attendant complications. As Charles H. Smith has pointed out (online resource) 'Bory de Saint-Vincent's almost too colourful life story has sometimes overshadowed his reputation as one of the most thoughtful and productive naturalists of the early nineteenth century. A free-spending extrovert who also dabbled in literary ventures, his career was complicated by involvement in a near-mutiny at sea, various political intrigues, and financial debts - to the extent that he spent years at a time avoiding the authorities, or actually being incarcerated. Throughout it all, however, he managed to keep up a career as a natural history collector. Bory was the first important island biogeographer?'. From the collection of Henri Ledoux (eccentric Parisian collector; one of his fetishes was to acquire important title-pages and jettison the rest of the books) with his distinctive small red stamp (H.L. in a heart) at beginning and end and a note identifying the authorship of the letter in his hand in red ink.

        Geographical memoirs on New South Wales . By Various hands; containing an account of the Surveyor General's late expedition. Edited by Barron Field esq

      John Murray, London 1825 - Octavo, with a frontispiece, four folding maps and two botanical plates at rear; title-page and frontispiece a little browned, some offsetting from the maps yet a fine and very attractive copy in a striking contemporary green polished calf binding, spine with unusual ornate gilt geometric decoration and red morocco labels. Cunningham on Liverpool Plains the Blue Mountains. An uncommonly good copy in a handsome contemporary binding: one of the more important and interesting works relating to the Macquarie era. This work includes any number of essays on Australia collected during Field's residence in New South Wales from 1817 to 1824, notably the only published account of Oxley's 1823 expedition to survey the Queensland coast, along with a second narrative of the expedition by one of the participants, John Uniacke. Apart from Oxley's account of Moreton Bay, the work has several early expedition journals, notably the only published account of Allan Cunningham's exploration to the Liverpool Plains, Currie's expedition to the southward of Lake George and Field's own journal of his trip across the Blue Mountains. The work is very interesting in terms of Aboriginal history for the inclusion of Oxley's report of the expedition to Moreton Bay which has important notes on the local tribes (including two chapters recounting fights Oxley had witnessed). There is also Barron Field's own meandering essay 'On the Aborigines of New Holland and Van Diemen's Land'. There are also several significant essays on natural history, the best being Cunningham's 'On the Botany of the Blue Mountains', while the botanical plates at the end illustrate four plants including Fieldia Australis (named for Barron Field). The fine frontispiece image is after a drawing by John Lewin, Australia's first professional artist. Interestingly, this work makes a perhaps surprising appearance in Abbey's Travel in Aquatint and Lithography, which is testament to the quality of Lewin's view. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

All lithographs were executed by Anthony Imbert, whom Harry Peters called the pioneer lithographer of New York City, after drawings by Asher B. Durand and others, including at least 3 by George Catlin. One of the first recorded American books illustrated with lithographs. Howes C-562; American Imprints 20118; Peters, America on Stone, pp. 228-232. An important volume, commemorating the greatest feat of American engineering to that date, the opening of the Erie Canal connecting the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean. This copy with the name in gilt on the front cover of Samuel L. Mitchell. There is a portrait of Mitchell in the book engraved by Asher Durand. The front endpaper contains an inscription by Mitchell dated 1827 to his brother, Singleton, mentioning that he had received two copies of the book and was giving him this one. On the next blank page is an inscription dated 1849 by Singleton to his grandson. At the end of the book are bound a number of blank pages but for two which contain manuscript descriptions of Signals for the Grand Canal Celebration Fleet of Steam Gallies, with several small watercolors of flags. Samuel L. Mitchell was a founding editor of The Medical Repository, the first medical journal in the United States, as well as a member of both the United States Congress and Senate. Mitchell strongly endorsed the building of the Erie Canal, sponsored by his friend and political ally DeWitt Clinton, and gave a speech at its dedication. Mitchell suggested renaming the United States of America Fredonia, combining the English "freedom" with a Latinate ending. His suggestion was not taken seriously, though some towns took on the name. He was known for his widespread knowledge, Thomas Jefferson considering him the "Congressional Dictionary.

        WANDERINGS IN SOUTH AMERICA, THE NORTH-WEST OF THE UNITED STATES, and the Antilles, in the Years 1812, 1816, 1820, and 1824. With original instructions for the Perfect Preservation of Birds, &c. for Cabinets of Natural History.

      J. Mawman,, London: 1825 - 326 pp. First edition; later 3/4 calf; marble boards; raised cords; dark brown, morocco label, gilt stamped; edges stained and trimmed; blue-black headbands; frontispiece lithograph ("A Nondescript"). Binding tight; boards moderate edge wear; f.p. foxing otherwise internally pristine; see additional images provided. Waterton made two trips to the northern coast of South America and through his descriptive writing caused a stir in Victorian England with the publication of a drawing of a half man, half animal creature he was supposed to have seen (the fp.). Quoting Borba 937: "Charles Waterton (1781-1865) was born in Yorkshire, educated at a Catholic college, travelled in Spain and in 1804 sailed to British Guiana with his father, who owned property there. Waterton returned to England in 1806 after his father's death. He made four other voyages to the Guianas, and travelled across them and the northern part of South America for a period of ten years. On his first voyage, in 1812, he sailed the Demerara, Essequibo, and Rio Branco rivers. One of the aims of this journey was to obtain 'curare' which he calls 'Wourali.' He was successful and returned to England with a sample with which he made experiments to find out its properties. In 1816, on his second voyage, he went to Pernambuco from where he travelled to Cayenne, and there ventured into the jungle to collect and study species, especially birds. His third and fourth voyages, in 1820 and 1824, again took him to the Guianas. The value of Waterton's work lies in the fact that he was the first to observe and describe 'd'apr?s nature' the birds and animals of the tropics, largely known only from museum specimens. Waterton was not truly a scientist; he lacked formal scientific education since his field was the humanities. He was well aware of the taste of the general public for adventures and never missed an opportunity to describe most extraordinary ones, of how he captured a boa constrictor, a crocadile, etc. Waterton was eccentric. He travelled barefoot across jungles and in England slept on the floor using a board as a pillow. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Rapport fait à l'Académie Royale des Sciences, Sur la partie Zoologique du Voyage autour du Monde?

      Pillet aîné, Paris 1825 - Slim octavo, 16 pp., very good in recent quarter polished calf with gilt lettering. Rare report by Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire on the zoological volume of the Freycinet voyage account, including some personal observations on the mammals of Australia. The Zoologique was authored by Jean Rene Constant Quoy and Joseph Paul Gaimard, physicians and naturalists accompanying the expedition, and was published in 16 livraisons between 1824 and 1826. In this report, eminent naturalist and savant Saint-Hilaire critiques the publication, summarising the chapters and adding his own notes and observations. Originally prepared for inclusion in the Revue encyclopédique (1825, volume 26), it is here offered by the Parisian publishers Pillet aîné to encourage sale of the Zoologique and other upcoming volumes of the Freycinet voyage publication. Effectively it forms a prospectus for the Zoologique, distributed gratis by Pillet aîné to likely buyers. In his report Saint-Hilaire comments on the remarkable mammals of New Holland, including the possum, potoroo and kangaroo, remarking on the remarkable quality and colour of its pelt : '?le kanguroo laineux; cette derniére espèce est surtout très-remarquable par la qualité de son poil, rappelant tout-à-fait celui de la vigogne par la vivacité de sa teinte (le roux ferrugineux), et par sa finesse et son abondance'. Interestingly, Saint-Hilaire also makes a passing reference to Australia's first natural history publisher John Lewin 'Cependant peut-être faundra-t-il revenir aux premières vues de M. Lewin dessinateur et graveur sur les lieux mêmes, à Sydney'. Saint-Hilaire was a towering figure of French science, appointed professor of quadrupeds, cetaceans, birds, reptiles and fish at the Musée d'histoire naturelle in 1793 at the young age of twenty-one. He travelled with Napoleon's campaign to Egypt, but it was his long study of the museum's mammalian collection that made him famous, and led to comparisons with Cuvier (although the two men fell out in 1829). During his tenure he published a series of articles and monographs on the platypus. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

La stesura trasparente, delicata e assai sicura del foglio è tipica di un artista dell'acquerello, lontana dai numerosi dilettanti che nell'Ottocento praticavano questa forma d'arte. Il titolo al retro, lungo, dettagliato e corredato di data induce a credere che la veduta sia stata colta dal vero. L'autore "D. Roberts" è forse identificabile con il noto pittore d'architettura e acquerellista scozzese, nato ad Edimburgo nel 1796 e morto a Londra nel 1864.Associato alla Royal Academy dal 1839 e membro effettivo dell'istituzione dal 1841, Davids compì numerosi viaggi in Europa, Siria ed Egitto, producendo schizzi ed acquerelli che furono sovente tradotti in stampe litografiche. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo; piccola mancanza restaurata in corrispondenza del cielo in alto a sinistra. 0

Hoboken 2, 498 and 499 (recording two issues, the earlier with "Pr" to title but with no actual price and including the subscription notice, the later with a printed price of "2f30xr," without subscription notice). The present work was commissioned for the opening of the Josephstadt Theatre in Vienna by the playwright and impresario Karl Friedrich Hensler (1761-1825). The first performance took place on October 3, 1822, with Beethoven leading the orchestra from the piano. "That Beethoven should have conceived music so solemn and so little popular for the opening ceremony of a theatre is yet another proof of how deeply ingrained in him were the principles of the eighteenth-century Enlightenment. The very use of the word 'Weihe' - consecration - suggests that for him the theatre was not so much a place of entertainment as an institution for the moral education of the public. We do not meet this attitude again until Wagner's Bühnenweihfestpiel, Parsifal." Cooper: Beethoven The Last Decade 1817-1827, p. 348.

        Correspondence, Papers, and Ephemera of Civil War Surgeon Doctor David Merritt, M.D., of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, written to his family at St. John, New Brunswick, Canada, as well as other Letters and Ephemera of his family, 1825-1905.

      - Collection of 45 letters, 170 manuscript pages, dated 10 April 1839 to 10 June 1882, plus over 150 printed and manuscript papers and ephemeral items, relating to Dr. Merritt and his family, dated 1825-1905. This correspondence is one of the most peculiar, and, ultimately poignant that we have handled. The archive chronicles the dysfunctional relationship between Merritt and his father and David Merritt¿s attempts to communicate with his father seeking acknowledgement, acceptance, and his father¿s respect. The letters become almost desperate, verging on belligerent, and are often accompanied by documents which Merritt has fashioned with elaborate calligraphy and handmade seals and other illustrations to resemble ¿official¿ certificates. Merritt¿s father never answered his son¿s letters. Dr. David Merritt (1830-1888) The Merritt family was an English family that came to America in 1662 and eventually settled in Rye, New York. During the American Revolutionary war the family, who were Loyalists, came to New Brunswick, with the majority of the family settling in Saint John, and one branch settling in Ontario. David Daniel Merritt was born in 1764 in Rye, New York. He went to New Brunswick with his parents during the Revolutionary War. He married Mary Wheeler (1770-1842). They had 7 children: Thomas (1792-1869); David Jabez (1803-1884); Mary (1800-1894); Amy (1789-1871); Julia (1807-1881); Caroline Matilda (1809-); Eliza (-1827). David Daniel died in Saint John in 1829. He was a merchant and owned a store at the north side of Market Square. He built the Loyalist House located on the corner of Union and Germain Streets which eventually became a museum and National Historic Site. David Jabez Merritt, son of David Daniel Merritt, was born in Saint John in 1803. His first wife was Fanny Cornwall Smith (1808-1838), daughter of William H. Smith, which he married in 1828. They had three children: David (1829-1888); Julia Harrison (1834-1912); and Edward Miles (1834-1896). His second wife, whom he married in 1841, was Anna Magee (1820-1911), daughter of James Magee. Anna was born in Ireland and died in Saint John. They had 8 children: Thomas Henry (1842-1910); William Hamilton (1844-1925); Frederick Jabez (1846-1918); Eliza (1849-); Charles Richard (1856-1924); Anna Maud (1860-1932); Fanny (1866-1929); and Louise (1860-1941). David Jabez Merritt was a merchant who owned a number of businesses. He had 2 stores, one in Hampton and a farm on Gondola Point. He was a 2nd Lieut. in the 1st Battalion Militia. There are several letters and ephemeral paper items related to David Jabez Merritt in this collection. Anna Magee, David Jabez Merritt's second wife, was the daughter of John James Magee from Fermanagh, Ireland. Her siblings were John (1828-1885), William, and Thomas S. (-1857). Thomas S. ran a general merchandise establishment called India House located on Dock Street. After his death, Thomas' nephew, Edward Miles Merritt took over. John who was born in Enniskillen, Ireland, first went to work with Lawton & Vassie. He with his brother William established Magee Bros. & Co. around 1858. It was located at the corner of King and Prince William St. selling dry goods. The company in 1877 made the transition from dry goods to coal and shipping and relocated to Water Street. John Magee was one of the directors of the Spring Hill Coal Mines. In 1879 he was elected Alderman, Duke Ward until 1882. John and William also ran a farm on the Marsh Road. There are several letters of the Magee family in this collection. Dr. David Merritt was born at St. John, New Brunswick, Canada on 14 September 1829. He was the son of David Jabez Merritt and his first wife Fanny Cornwall Smith. He emigrated to Philadelphia at the age of 19 years old and began the study of medicine and graduated from the Pennsylvania Medical College in March of 1851. It would appear from the correspondence that Dr. Merritt's father was very much against

        Characters at the West End of the Town

      , 1825. 1825. first edition. Scarce In Any StateDIGHTON, Richard. Characters at the West End of the Town. Drawn and Etched by Richard Dighton. London: Thomas M'Lean, Repository of Wit and Humour, 1825. First edition. Large folio (14 1/4 x 9 7/8 inches; 361 x 252 mm.). Thirty-eight hand-colored etchings with interleaves. Contemporary quarter dark red crushed morocco over marbled boards with gilt-lettered crimson morocco title label. An excellent copy.Tooley, without listing, notes thirty-nine plates in his copy (and mistakenly dates it "1824"). We have seen another copy with forty plates. We are aware of yet another copy, c. 1793-1812, containing seventy-two plates none of which are repeated in the prior two copies noted. The copy with forty contains plates not found in the copy under notice; the copy under notice contains five plates not found in the former: A Princely Ambassador; A Firm Banker; The Master General of the Ordinance; A Discharg’d Fife-r; The Hero of the Chase.OCLC records only three copies: the copy at Harvard contains only thirty-seven plates; the copy at Yale has forty-six; the copy at Kunstboblio Staatliche Museen zu Berlin also contains forty-six plates. It is unknown how many plates were actually published; it thus far appears that no two copies are alike. ABPC records only two copies at auction since 1975, each with different plate collation. This title is scarce in any state.The Golden Age of English satirical art began in the late eighteenth century with the etchings of Thomas Rowlandson and James Gillray and ended in the mid 1830's with the etchings of William Heath and George Cruikshank. After that time the emerging morals of Victorian society put an end to such forms of always exuberant and often outrageous compositions. During its height many artists supplied the London print sellers with their satirical etchings and caricatures. A father and son team, the Dightons, were major contributors.Richard Dighton trained in London under his father, Robert Dighton (1752-1814). Both father and son were popular etchers in the English satirical tradition. Unlike their contemporaries, however, their compositions are distinguishable by a more gentle and less critical brand of caricature. With the emphasis applied more to character, the Dightons have often been seen as precursors of the Vanity Fair style of the late nineteenth century.Richard Dighton (1796?-1880) was best known for his numerous portraits of City and West End characters. He began his extensive series of City and West End characters in 1817, publishing over one hundred etchings during the next ten years. In 1828, Dighton ceased producing etchings and moved to the provinces - Cheltenham and Worcester - where he lived and worked over the next twenty years, before returning to London. He focused his attention primarily on watercolor portraits and, from 1835, lithographic portraits. The National Portrait Gallery in London has 262 examples of Richard Dighton's portraits. Another twenty-eight examples of his work can be seen at The Fine Arts Museum of San Francisco.The Plates:1. The Dandy Club (Decr. 29. 1818).2. A View of Devonshire (October 1820). 3.

L'opera, di ottima fattura e ricercata per il soggetto, è un disegno rappresentante la basilica di Superga presso Torino, colta in lontananza dal Monte dei Cappuccini oltre il Po; in secondo piano, al centro, lo spazio è occupato dalle ville e dagli altri edifici che punteggiavano uno dei luoghi più ameni del territorio torinese. Di notevole freschezza e abilità è inoltre il primo piano con alberi mossi dal vento. La stesura trasparente, delicata e assai sicura del foglio è tipica di un artista dell'acquerello, lontana dai numerosi dilettanti che nell'Ottocento praticavano questa forma d'arte. Il titolo al retro, lungo, dettagliato e corredato di data induce a credere che la veduta sia stata colta dal vero. L'autore "D. Roberts" è forse identificabile con il noto pittore d'architettura e acquerellista scozzese, nato ad Edimburgo nel 1796 e morto a Londra nel 1864.Associato alla Royal Academy dal 1839 e membro effettivo dell'istituzione dal 1841, Davids compì numerosi viaggi in Europa, Siria ed Egitto, producendo schizzi ed acquerelli che furono sovente tradotti in stampe litografiche. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo; piccola mancanza restaurata in corrispondenza del cielo in alto a sinistra.

Hoboken 2, 498 and 499 (recording two issues, the earlier with "Pr" to title but with no actual price and including the subscription notice, the later with a printed price of "2f30xr," without subscription notice). The present work was commissioned for the opening of the Josephstadt Theatre in Vienna by the playwright and impresario Karl Friedrich Hensler (1761-1825). The first performance took place on October 3, 1822, with Beethoven leading the orchestra from the piano. "That Beethoven should have conceived music so solemn and so little popular for the opening ceremony of a theatre is yet another proof of how deeply ingrained in him were the principles of the eighteenth-century Enlightenment. The very use of the word 'Weihe' - consecration - suggests that for him the theatre was not so much a place of entertainment as an institution for the moral education of the public. We do not meet this attitude again until Wagner's Bühnenweihfestpiel, Parsifal." Cooper: Beethoven The Last Decade 1817- 1827, p. 348. Folio. Newly bound in quarter dark blue calf with spine titled and ruled in gilt, matching paper boards. 1f. (lithographic title), 60 pp. Engraved. Some minor staining and foxing; light pencilled numbering. A very good copy overall. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Beitraege zur bildenden Gartenkunst für angehende Gartenkünstler und Gartenliebhaber. Zweite verbesserte Auflage.

      München, Joseph Lindauer 1825. - Mit lithographischem Porträt, gestochenem Titel mit Vignette und 8 (3 mehrfach gefaltet) lithographischen Tafeln. XXVIII, 280 S. Marmorierter Pappband d. Zt. mit eingeb. lithograph. Orig.-Karton. Dochnahl 146. - Zweite Ausgabe vom Hauptwerk Friedrich Ludwig von Sckells (1750-1823), der den Englischen Garten in München schuf, den Garten von Schloss Nymphenburg umwandelte und zahlreiche Gärten und Parks anlegte. Er gilt als Begründer des "englischen Stils" in der deutschen Landschaftsgärtnerei. "Mit seinen `Beiträgen zur bildenden Gartenkunst für angehende Gartenkünstler und Gartenliebhaber` (1818, mehrere Aufl.) verfaßte Sckell das erste Lehrbuch eines in der Anlage von Landschaftsgärten erfahrenen Gartenarchitekten in deutscher Sprache. Auf der Grundlage seiner eigenen internationalen Ausbildung und großen theoretischen wie praktischen Erfahrung stellte Sckell die Gartenkunst in einen Kontext mit Malerei, Architektur und Städtebau und entwickelte frühe Konzepte zum Denkmalschutz. Die Modernität seiner Verbindung von Garten- und Stadtbaukunst zeigt sich in deren bis ins 20. Jahrhundert reichenden Reflexen" (NDB, XXII, 145). - Mit interessanter Provenienz: Das unbezeichnete gest. Exlibris mit Motto "Nil desperandum" lässt sich mit Warnecke 735 dem Georg Adolph von Hake, 1779-1840, zuordnen; Hake wurde 1798 von König Georg III. von Hannover zum Hofjunker berufen. Später war er im Dienst von Ernst August von Hannover. Bei Auslandsaufenthalten in der Schweiz und in England von 1802 bis 1812 lernte er die aktuelle Gartenkunst seiner Zeit mit dem parkartigen englischen Landschaftsgarten kennen. Nachdem sein Vater verstorben war, lebte er ab 1818 auf dem Rittergut Ohr beim Hameln. Er verfasste des Buch "Über höhere Gartenkunst - Fragmente aus dem Tagebuch eines alten Gärtners." - Der fliegende Vorsatz desweiteren mit handschriftl. Namenszug Adolph Hake und einem neuzeitlichen Adelsexlibris. - Gering berieben, tls. gebräunt bzw. braunfleckig. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
