Signed by former President John Adams, after handwritten poem, penned by his granddaughter, Elizabeth Coombs Adams.

John Adams. Quincy, August 8th, 1825." Adams made a correction in his own hand to "extreme," adding "est." At the time of this inscription, John Adams was plagued with arthritis and would pass away within 11 months. The rest of the volume is filled with poems, letters and notes from members of the Adams family. Provenance: this book was gifted from President Adams to "an in-law he considered a granddaughter," Susan Dayton Harrod Boyd. It was inherited by Susan Boyd's son, Charles, then to his daughter, Emily Dearborn Boyd, whose signatures appears on the front pastedown endpaper. It was inherited from Emily Boyd by her grandson, Charles Boyd Coleman, who sold it to Gray Collections. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

William Williams
Taylor and Hessey, 1825. Condition: Good. Thought to be semi-autobiographical, this book details the journey of a sailor who is cast away in the New World. Written in the mid-1700s, this book did not achieve print until 1815, due to its fictional elements not fitting in with the then current vogue for true travel tales. With a frontispiece and one other plate. Direct from the Regency library of Elizabeth Greenly, later Lady Elizabeth Coffin Greenly. Elizabeth Greenly, born at Titley Court, Herefordshire, was a noted and varied collector. She kept prolific diaries from 1784 until her death in 1839 which included her responses to current events and occasions in her daily life. Among the diaries many names and anecdotes of celebrities of the time appear, including Lord Byron, Marie Antoinette, Mary Wollstonecraft and Hannah More. She was known to comment on customs of foreign countries to which she and her friends had travelled, and had a keen interest in scientific discoveries and advancements including medicine and archaeology. The Greenly library contents show Elizabeth Greenly's numerous interests including: Welsh causes, Science, topography, travel, Bibliana and literature, particularly female poets. The library contains many first editions of contemporary works, and many are signed or contain her bookplate. The library contained over 1000 volumes which show the diversity and depth of her interests and give an insight into the life of this fascinating collector. These works come directly from the library of the Titley Court estate. CONDITION In half calf binding. External … [Click Below for Full Description]

George Sinclair
James Ridgeway. Very Good: Gorgeous Illustrations Intact: wonderful exploration of British natural history. George Sinclair was a botanist; in this work, he is exploring the nutritional value of various grasses as animal fodder through comparison of their water-soluble components. Originally published in folio form with cuttings of the grasses mentioned, this is the second edition and is profusely illustrated with prints of the various grasses in color. The study was instituted by the Duke of Bedford while recuperating from ill-health and done with the assistance of various others including Sir Humphrey Davies. The illustrations are just stunning both in detail and the accuracy of approach. Filled with tables and comparisons, this is a great historical document detailing grasses or "weeds" that were cultivated in Great Britain to aid in the feeding of farm animals. Prints signed variously by "C. Hullmandel", or "E.D. Smith,del and A Bailey Sculp". Please do not hesitate to email with questions or for more pictures. Very Good Condition: 4to, leather spine with marble boards; spine is grass green with gilt bands bracketing the title on a brown background with gilt lettering. Re-bound.

(Scottish Literature)
London: Printed for Knight and Lacey, 1825. First edition. Two hand-colored engraved plates. 8, 111, [1], 24 pp. 1 vols. 8vo. The Jury of Scottish Common Sense. Fletcher was the Scottish-born minister of the United presbyterian Church, who In April 1824, was prosecuted in the civil and ecclesiastical courts for breach of promise to marry Miss Eliza Dick. According to the DNB, "In the king's bench no verdict was given, but in the meeting of the United Associate Synod at Edinburgh he was suspended from the exercise of his office and from church fellowship. The trial and suspension provoked a spate of publications ..." One of those publications was this very amusing satire of the trail of the Reverend, before a "Court of Common Sense" with a 'special jury" consisting of a dozen illustrious Scots, including Sir Walter Scott, who was elected Foreman; Sir James Mackintosh; J. W. Croker; Thomas Campbell; Thomas Moore, Samuel Rogers; John Galt; and William Blackwood. Much of the fun consists of the conversations between the members of the jury, wehn called upon to examin a witness. The Jury's final verdict, after a deliberation of 5 minuttes, is delivered by the forman, Sir Walter Scott: "My Lord, we unanimously find the defendant Guilty upon the whole counts of the indictment." Boards, uncut, rebacked with new black cloth spine. Early stab marks in inner margin, one signature sprung.

Reliures demi-veau glacé cerise, dos à 4 faux-nerfs plats avec frise dorée, 2 pièces de titre vert olive par dos, fleurons romantiques à froid, frises dorées en queues, tranches marbrées. (Reliures de l'époque). - Bel exemplaire, dans de fines reliures romantiques. Les derniers dos sont légèrement décolorés. Petites rousseurs tout au long des volumes, quelques cahiers brunis (au tome XV notamment), quelques cernes clairs. Édition tirée sur les mêmes formes que celle que venait de donner Didot et Dalibon (1824-1828, 27 volumes), mais dans laquelle l'éditeur, pour une raison inconnue, n'a pas conservé la partition du "Devin du village" (le 28° volume). Elle a été imprimée également sur les presses de Jules Didot l'aîné (sur papier fin), et la chronologie de parution ne suit pas la tomaison. Quérard indique que quelques titres portent l'adresse de Dalibon et Dufour associe l'adresse de Feret à celle de Baudoin frères. Le présent exemplaire est à l'adresse de Feret, à l'exception du tome XXII (Dalibon), sans mention d'édition aucune. P.-R.
