Samuel JOHNSON
Talboys & Wheeler, and W. Pickering, Oxford, 1825. Talboys & Wheeler, and W. Pickering, Oxford,, 1825. 11 vols., 8vo., with engraved armorial vignette on titles; attractively and strongly bound in contemporary full tan calf, sides with gilt frame border, backs with five raised bands, second and third compartments with red and black leather labels lettered in gilt, all other compartments richly ruled and tooled in gilt, doublures tooled in blind, all edges marbled, one volume neatly rebacked with old backstrip laid down, six labels (three red and three black) missing (but residual lettering wholly legible in blind), backstrips rather scuffed and age-worn (particularly on sixth volume), joints mildly rubbed (but all bindings entirely sound), else a handsome, internally crisp and spotless extended set in elaborate period binding. 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

Connecticut: , n.d., 1825. Unusual American watercolor measuring approx. 12.5" x 14.5" (315 x 363mm.), several small breaks in the paper professionally repaired on verso, mild waterstain enters from top margin, a few other small minor defects, but generally a good example. Remarkably similar to a picture by John William Hill, entitled "Circular Mill, King Street, New York, 1823", another unusually-shaped mill, also in brown ink and green watercolor, which was done when Hill was twenty one, and derivative of the watercolor painting he probably learned from British trained artists, including his father, John Hill, and William G. Wall.

[FISHER, James Hurtle]:
London, William Darton, [circa 1825]. Octavo, xii, 64 pages plus 64 engraved portraits with tissue-guards. Early gilt-decorated half calf and marbled papered boards a little rubbed and bumped at the extremities; corners and the rear leading edge a little worn; 'Vol III' label missing from the spine; occasional scattered foxing and offsetting; a very good copy. From the collection of James Hurtle Fisher, with his armorial bookplate on the pastedown and his signature in ink at the head of the engraved title page. Sir James Hurtle Fisher (1790-1875) 'was one of the most important pioneers of South Australia' (Australian Dictionary of Biography). He commenced practice as a solicitor in London in 1816 and 'was drawn into the colonizing movement in 1835.... [He] was selected as resident commissioner, one of the most important offices under the South Australian Act ... second only to the governor'. Fisher 'left England in July 1836 with the governor's party in the "Buffalo", arriving on 28 December 1836 at Holdfast Bay, where the official oaths were administered, a proclamation was read and a ceremony marked the beginning of settlement. In January 1837 Fisher erected his reed hut and Land Office near the survey camp of Colonel William Light at the north-western corner of the new capital site; the destruction of these temporary buildings by fire on 23 January 1839 caused both men serious loss. Fisher had been allowed to draft his own instructions, which were not shown to Governor [Sir] John Hindmarsh. Disputes between the two men over their respective powers had begun on the voyage … [Click Below for Full Description]

These short stories set in China are illustrated with five lovely, elaborately hand-colored lithographed plates including two scenes of children—one in which they are blowing bubbles and one in which they are fishing out of a boat with a carved dragon prow. The first plate is very faintly marked "H.J. Backer," but the illustrations are otherwise unattributed. No holdings of this book are listed in WorldCat or NUC Pre-1956; the only other copy we were able to find is held by the Dutch national library. Not in Brinkman. Contemporary cartonné binding covered in decorative printed paper, shown above right; spine showing a small undarkened area where label is now lacking. Front joint tender. Lacking pp. 33/34 and 39/40; some signatures loosening. Pages with a very few small spots, otherwise clean and pleasing.

[Huron Indians]: [After Chatfield, Edward]:
[London]: Printed by C. Hullmandel, [1825].. Handcolored lithograph, 18 x 13 inches. In fine condition. Matted to 23 1/4 x 19 1/2 inches. A striking handcolored lithograph of the Huron chief, Nicholas Vincent Tsawanhonhi, drawn from an original painting by Edward Chatfield. Chief Tsawanhonhi is pictured in his native dress, as he was when presented with three other Huron chiefs to King George IV of Great Britain on April 7, 1825. Tsawanhonhi holds a piece of wampum in his right hand, and the long decorative collar bears the image of a tomahawk presented to him by the late George III. He is shown in a wilderness setting, and wears a royal gift around his neck, a large gold medal given to him by George IV. The print was executed after an original painting by Edward Chatfield (ca. 1800-39), a young and talented pupil of Benjamin Robert Haydon, and a painter of historical scenes who supplemented his income with portrait painting. The lithographer, Charles Joseph Hullmandel, was born in London in 1789 and had a noted career in Great Britain, contributing important early innovations in the process of lithography. Nicolas Vincent, called "Tsaouenhohoui" but spelled "Tsawanhonhi" on this print, was born in 1769 in Jeune-Lorette. He was the son of Louis Vincent, called "Sawantanan," and Louise Martin, also known as "Thodatowan." Tsawanhonhi was named War Chief in 1803, and went on to become Grand Chief of the Huron- Wendat Nation in 1810. During his leadership of the tribe he embarked on a long process of land claims that took him to England in 1825, where he presented the grievance … [Click Below for Full Description]

Woodward, A[ugustus] B.
New-York: Published by Derick Van Veghten; J. & J. Harper, Printers, 1825. 88pp. Disbound, tanned, spotted. About Good+. Woodward, appointed by Thomas Jefferson, as one of the first three Michigan territorial judges, wrote the Territory's first legal code. This history of early presidential administrations identifies a number of 'evils' residing in the American political system, many springing from the spirit of faction and destructive competition; others from the disfranchisement of citizens of the District of Columbia, insufficient independence of the legislature, excessive opulence of the presidency, failure to employ the vice president usefully, the unconstitutionality of the cabinet system. An 1825 Washington edition also issued, identically collated. Howes calls an 1826 Frederick-Town printing the second edition. Howes W658. AI 23372 [5].

Many important contributions were made at this time by such luminaries as Bentham, Lieber, Livingston and Tocqueville. Roscoe's work was equally important. Believing that retribution should play no part in criminal jurisprudence, he advocated milder punishments, believing they would reform the criminal. He outlined these ideas in Observations on Penal Jurisprudence, And the Reformation of Criminals (1819). He elaborated them, and responded to critics, in tw … [Click Below for Full Description]
