Moses L. Ogden
On offer is a remarkable historical journal with many dates the earliest of which is 1825. It begins with the heading 34A bill of the Delawrae River34 and lists what research suggests to be stops and business along the the Delaware River waterway. There are hundreds of names with the dates and amounts collected from each individual. Some coded references. There are also mentions of loans the nature of the loans and when satisfied. Though a primitive work there are numerous references to Moses L. Ogden as his family was prominent to the Delaware area from pre-Revolutionary times. We believe besides some mentions of the lumber purchases and sales that Mr. Ogden collected taxes. Delaware historians will have a grand time completing the research on this journal. Book measures 434 x 6.534 is leatherbound very dry and the inner pages are linen. Overall condition is good. Most of the 34 leaves are clean and clear some age-toning.

TANNER, Henry Schenck (1786-1858)
H. S. Tanner, Philadelphia, 1825. Copper-engraving with full period colour. One of the earliest state maps of Illinois and Missouri, this is the revised second issue with significant changes to the mapping of the Mississippi headwaters and with an early depiction of the beginnings of the Santa Fe Trail. Henry Tanner's A New American Atlas was the most distinguished atlas published in America during the nineteenth century. The maps were carefully constructed from the best and most recent surveys. They were finely engraved on a large-scale, printed on high quality paper, and carefully hand colored. Because of the great expense involved in the production and publication, the atlas was published in five parts between 1819 and 1823. This is one of the earliest maps to show Illinois and Missouri as American states. The map was added to the fifth part of the atlas in 1823. For Illinois, organized counties appear only in the southern part of the state. The northernmost part of the state is still the preserve of the Sauk and Fox. Further south, between the Illinois and Mississippi rivers, are the Military Bounty Lands. A primitive Chicago and Fort Dearborn appear at the mouth of the Chicago River. For Missouri, a state since 1820, counties appear only along the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. Missouri's northern and southern extremities are quite empty. This copy is an example of the improved second issue of the map. The most significant changes can be seen in Tanner's revised mapping of the headwaters of the Mississippi. Tributaries off the Tete de Mort River have been removed, th … [Click Below for Full Description]

[FAIRBURN, John, bookseller]
London: Printed and Published by John Fairburn, 110 Minories. [circa 1825]. First. First edition. A remarkable, scarce chapbook printed and published by John Fairburn, circa 1825, consisting of 8 folded leaves or 16 unnumbered pages, with the first folded leaf serving as the wrapper, and 8 engraved illustrations with vivid, contemporary hand-coloring. Overall soiling to the wraps, a thin strip of tape at the fold, and a small chip to the upper right corner of the front wrap and first leaf, good. Internally very good, the hand-colored illustrations are bright and clean, with moderate staining and thumbing to the corners. John Fairburn, "veteran scandalmonger," bookseller, and radical publisher of various penny dreadfuls, political tracts, etc., also published numerous chapbooks for children and young adults. The text used in this edition of Park's Ten Commandments is from the English Book of Common Prayer. Unlike most chapbooks, this was not printed letterpress with woodcut illustrations. Both the front wrap and text pages appear to have been printed lithographically, and the illustrations were most likely printed from etched and engraved plates. The illustrations are also notable for their innovative designs, and for the large number of colors used in the hand-coloring (we count up to twelve separate colors). Very scarce. OCLC locates only one copy at Claremont College. .

MOORE, Lieutenant Joseph, [and Captain Frederick MARRYAT]
London: Kingsbury & Co. and Thomas Clay, 1825. Hand-coloured aquatint plate engraved by H. Pyall after Moore. In excellent condition. Image size: 10 x 14 5/8 inches. A beautiful plate from Moore's work "Eighteen Views taken at & Near Rangoon," an important visual record of the Burmese countryside and scenery, and of the war between the Burmese and British in 1824 to 1826. Following Burmese incursions into British held territory in 1821-1823 (including the successful invasion of Assam), the Governor-General, Lord Amherst, declared war on Burma on February 24, 1824. The British were successful in expelling the Burmese from Assam, but Bandula, the ablest of the Burmese generals, repelled a British detachment at Ramu on the Chittagong frontier. In reply, the British sent an expedition of 11,000 men under Major-General Archibald Campbell and ships under Captain Frederick Marryat to attack Rangoon by sea. The expedition resulted in the capture of Rangoon on May 11, 1824, with the Burmese forces fleeing into jungles of Pegu. Meanwhile, Bandula had been recalled and arrived in Rangoon on December 1 with 60,000 men. He was, however, defeated on December 15 and then retreated to Donabew, where, after a brave defence, he was killed in April 1825. On April 25, Campbell captured Prome, the capital of Lower Burma. The fighting continued sporadically throughout the rest of 1825 and into 1826, until a peace treaty was signed on February 24. Joseph Moore was a Lieutenant in the 89th Regiment. Frederick Marryat's involvement in the conflict began in March 1823 when he "commissione … [Click Below for Full Description]

Il nome tedesco del castello, che significa "corona di Sigismondo", deriva dal fatto che nel 1474 l’arciduca Sigismondo d’Austria ne entrò in possesso rafforzandone le difese in vista di possibili incursioni dei veneziani. Con la morte di Sigismondo però l’edificio andò incontro a una rapida decadenza, che l’autore non evita di raffigurare mostrando uno scorcio interno con i ruderi della cappella di San Biagio al culmine. Scheda bibliografica tratta da "Bolzano nelle antiche vedute" a cura di Arnaldo Loner, pagg. 88 e 89. Disponibile copia non a colori per euro 210. Formato: Litografia a colori di dimensioni 18,7x28 cm. Buono, ordinari segni d’uso e del tempo.

ALKEN, Henry Thomas (1785-1851)
published by Thomas M'Lean, Repository of Wit and Humour, London, 1825. (9 7/8 x 14 1/8 inches). Letterpress title (verso blank), 1p. "address" with publisher's advertisement beneath (verso blank), otherwise engraved throughout: hand-coloured engraved frontispiece and 42 hand-coloured engraved plates, each within a pale wash border, all by Alken. Expertly bound to style in red/brown half morocco over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, contemporary red morocco title label on upper cover lettered in gilt, the flat spine divided into six compartments by single gilt fillets, yellow glazed endpapers First edition, third issue: a fine copy of this evocation of Regency England. The first issue of this work was published in 1822, a second in 1823 and the present in 1825. Each print is made up of from two to six vignette scenes, each scene illustrating in a humourous fashion a single line from a popular song of the day. It is not surprising that a number of the images are of hunting, shooting and horses, but also included are scenes from domestic life of all classes, fashion, town and country life, military and naval life, etc. The publisher describes the genesis of this work in the introduction: "'Swans sing before they die --- 'twere no bad thing / 'Should some folks die before they sing.' "So whispered a friend to Mr. Alken, when they were once compelled to hear the discordant notes of a volunteer at a convivial party. 'I wish it were so,' said the Artist, 'but the words of the Song furnish a good subject for a Sketch,' and he soon presented his friend with the Illustrati … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Boxing) Blake, T
London: W. Sams, Book & Printseller, to the Royal family opposite St James's Palace, 1825. Third state, the first being produced in 1818. Hand-colored aquatint with etched outline. 1 vols. 20 x 26 inches, matted and framed to 27 x 33 inches overall. 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. THE MOST FAMOUS BOXING PRINT EVER PRODUCED, AND AN IMPERISHABLE EVOCATION OF REGENCY SPORT. 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.

Aldini, Giovanni
Bologna, 1825. No Dust Jacket. Aldini, Giovanni (1762-1834). Letter signed with autograph postscript to Cardinal Zurla. 2pp. plus integral blank. Bologna, 28 [probably September] 1825. 297 x 210 mm. Slightly worn in the center crease, but fine. From the Thomas Philipps collection. Aldini, the nephew of Galvani, was the premier apologist for his uncle's theories of animal electricity, publishing several papers (see Garrison-Morton 1989.1) as well as his Account of the Late Improvements in Galvanism (1803), a book-length treatise on the subject. In the present letter he praises Cardinal Zurla for the Cardinal's understanding support of his [Aldini's] scientific enterprises. Apart from his promotion of animal electricity, Aldini helped to found the National Institute of Italy, established a practical school of physics and chemistry at Bologna, and pursued a career as an inventor. In his letter to the Cardinal he presents copies of two of his latest publications-on a machine for cutting marble, and on lighthouse construction-and expresses his intention to interest the Pope in his work by presenting him with drawings and models.

While New York and Florida each had their own dedicated page, other double-page sheets showcased multiple states at a time. As the title claims, these maps were drawn up using a careful combination of original surveys and the best existing published sources.The evident high cost of production meant that the publishers took the decision to issue the maps originally in five separate parts which were published from 1819 to 1823.
