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 Filled with tables and comparisons, this is a great historical document detailing grasses or "weeds" that were cultivated in Great Britain to aid in the feeding of farm animals.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.

ROUSSEAU (Jean-Jacques). Œuvres complètes de J. J. Rousseau. Avec des éclaircissements et des notes historiques. Paris, Feret, 1825-1828, 26 volumes in-8. 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. Auguis est cité comme l'auteur des notes, mais il s'agit surtout d'une compilation, et parfois même d'extraits mots pour mots, des commentateurs précédents. - Tome I : Discours ; II : Lettre à d'Alembert ; III-V : Émile ; VI : Contrat social [et autres oeuvres politiques] ; VII : Lettre à C. de Beaumont.

NOVELLI, Francesco
Probaly Venice, 1825. Probably Venice, 1825. An exquisite suite of watercolours, including a beautiful series of scenes documenting a Venetian commedia dell'arte troupe, by the Italian artist Francesco Novelli. Francesco Novelli (1767-1836), one of the preeminent artists of his generation, lived in Venice where he was best known for his outstanding book illustration. He enjoyed a long and successful career that culminated in the landmark editions of Don Quixote (1819) and Gil Blas (1820). Novelli is also known for illustrating works such as the Fasti Veneziani (1794), hinting at his abiding interest in the theatre and the performing arts. In this unmatched collection of Novelli's watercolours, the greatest number are piquant images of a troupe of the commedia dell'arte, with especially fine depictions of Pierrot himself, as well as other key figures such as Columbine and Harlequin. There is a remarkable series of scenes from a play, as well as studies of individual performers, many so precisely rendered that it is almost certain Novelli is depicting a known troupe. The remaining images cover all aspects of contemporary life, including several military vignettes (perhaps scenes from the diorama) as well as charming rural scenes. Several show Novelli's work at its most sympathetic, especially in his studies of street vendors and town squares. Many of these scenes derive from a period when the troupe was on the road. Some of the liveliest paintings depict street performers, conjurors and Punch and Judy shows. Unpublished, although the compilation of the album suggests this mi … [Click Below for Full Description]

(BINDINGS). (BYRON, GEORGE GORDON, LORD). GAMBA, COUNT PETER
London: John Murray, 1825. FIRST EDITION. This firsthand account of the final days of the great Romantic poet is offered here in a Romantic-style binding from the early days of a great British workshop. Robert Riviere began as a bookseller and binder in Bath in 1829, then set up shop as a binder in London in 1840; in 1881, he took his grandson Percival Calkin into partnership, at which time the firm became known as Riviere & Son, and the bindery continued to do business until 1939. The ticket in our binding gives an address of 24 Union St., Bath, indicating that it was done sometime before 1840, and the style is one popular in the 1830s. Riviere bindings from this period are uncommonly encountered. The text here is an eyewitness account of Lord Byron's final days in Missolonghi, to which he had travelled to fight for the cause of Greek independence. According to Atabey, "Gamba was the brother of Byron's mistress Theresa Guiccioli. He acted as Byron's secretary and was with him in Greece until the end. [James] Hobhouse assisted him with the publication of this biography, and after its appearance Gamba returned to Greece, where he was killed at the battle of Methana in 1826." This is the chief source of information on Byron's ill-fated Greek expedition, and the definitive account of his deathbed scene.. 220 x 138 mm. (8 5/8 x 5 1/4"). xii, 307, [1] pp. (without the half title). FIRST EDITION. ATTRACTIVE CONTEMPORARY MAROON MOROCCO BY ROBERT RIVIERE (his ticket on front pastedown), covers with gilt frame in the Romantic style featuring curling tendrils and botanical ornament … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Women's Education] [Commonplace Book] Polly Spurr, later Mrs. Cooper
[New York]: c. 1825. Manuscript notebook in stitched paper wrappers, with 34 total handwritten pages divided into two sections. The first section contains the meticulous penmanship practice of Polly Spurr, comprised of 24 pages of alphabet letters and repeated words; meanwhile the second section, labeled "Mrs. Cooper's Diary" contains 10 pages in a more mature hand, of reflections on religion and religious reading. A unique glimpse into the development of one young educated woman. Genealogy records of Chenango County, New York list Polly Spurr's birth in May of 1807 in the town of Columbus. While official historical records provide little other detail about her life, her personal copy and commonplace book give glimpses into who she was. On the verso of the front wrapper, she labels the book variously "Polly Spolly," "Polly Spurr's Book," and "Polly Spurr, Her Book," as though testing out titles. Between these ownership signature, she jots disconnected sections from the Book of Common Prayer, seemingly because she enjoys the poetry of them. "By reason of my sad estate to spend my breath in groans...My days just hastening to their end are like an evening Shade." By the first page, however, the book enters its first section -- the most orderly and meticulous of the book. Precisely crafted calligraphic letters are repeated in miniscule and magiscule, as are strings of words designed to aid in the practice of those letters: "wood, moon, soon...soars, exceeds." Following this section, a new section begins, delineated by the heading "Mrs. Cooper's Diary." Here, a more mature versi … [Click Below for Full Description]
