Pepys, Samuel; Braybrooke, Lord Richard
Henry Colburn, London, 1825. 4to in two volumes: xlii, 498, [2], xlix; [4], 348, vii, [1], 311. Illustrated with 13 full page plates (2 pedigrees, Facsimile of Pepys handwriting, 7 portraits, 1 map, and 2 views) Aside from some minor foxing, mostly to the preliminaries and the plates (which also show offsetting to the opposite leaves), this is a very bright, clean, tight set. Finely bound in contemporary full brown calf, rebacked with a more modern spine. Original boards' edges are a little worn and the leather has suffered some chipping. Decorative gilt borders. Original marbled endpapers, as well as marbled fore-edges. Deciphered from its original shorthand by Rev. John Smith between the years 1819 - 1822, Pepys' diary recounts first-hand accounts of a number of events during the English Restoration, including the Great Fire of London, the Second Dutch War and the Great Plague of London. Inarguably one of the most important works ever written on the history of London. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Quincy Josiah (III)
Boston Cummings, Hilliard, & Company 1825. First edition.

FIRST EDITION OF THE MEMOIR OF AMERICAN PATRIOT AND SON OF LIBERTY. JOSIAH QUINCY JUN. was also second in a long line of notable and important Bostonians to bear the name. In the years leading up to the American Revolution Josiah Quincy Jun. was a principal spokesman for the Sons of Liberty and served as John Adams' co-counsel during the trials of the soldiers involved in the Boston Massacre. A gifted orator, in 1766 he delivered an impassioned address in English "on liberty," or as others would recall it, on the meaning of being "a patriot," at Harvard's commencement upon receiving his Masters Degree. The speech caught the attention of Boston's patriot leadership, and by 1767, Quincy was contributing regularly to Samuel Adams' Boston Gazette, initially writing under the name "Hyperion". His essays were charged with colourful rhetoric denouncing British oppression. Josiah Jun.'s son, the author of this memoir, was a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, Mayor of Boston, and President of Harvard University from 1829-1845. The historic Quincy Market in downtown B … [Click Below for Full Description]

Timkowski, Georg.
Fleischer, 1825. Mit 8 Kupfertafeln, 2 gefalteten gestochenen Grundrissen und 1 mehrfach gefalteten gestochenen Karte. Seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe. - Henze V, 327. - Die Tafeln zeigen Trachten und Schrifttafeln, die Grundrisse zeigen Peking sowie das russische Kloster in Peking, die Karte zeigt den Reiseverlauf. - Timkowski machte sich vor allem durch seine Beschreibung und Kartierung der doppelten Marschroute durch die Wüste Gobi, die er von Kjachta nach Peking und zurück... durchzog (Henze), verdient. - "Das Schicksal verschönerte mein Leben durch ein seltenes, unvergeßliches Ereignis: ich sah China." Mit diesen Worten beginnen die Aufzeichnungen im Reise-Tagebuch von Georg Timkowski (1790-1875), der am 12. September einige Mitglieder der russischen Mission in die Hauptstadt Chinas begleiten soll. Aufgrund eines Sondervertrages zwischen den beiden Staaten sind russische Bürger die einzigen westlichen Ausländer, die zu dieser Zeit auf dem Landweg einreisen dürfen. Vom sibirischen Kiachta, dem günstigsten Ausgangspunkt nördlich der Mongolei, führt ihr Weg direkt südlich nach Urga, dann durch die Wüste Gobi bis zur Karawanenstadt Kalgan und von dort aus in acht Tagen nach Peking, wo sie am 14. Dezember eintreffen. Sechs Monate bleiben Timkowski Zeit, bis er mit anderen Missionaren die Rückreise antritt. Auf "kaiserlichen Befehl und Kosten der Schatzkammer" wird sein Reisebericht 1824 in St. Petersburg herausgegeben. Im Jahr darauf erscheint die deutsche Publikation. - 010

Hammond, Anthony
1825. One of Hammond's Proposed Criminal Codes for Great Britain [Hammond, Anthony (1758-1838)]. The Criminal Code. Coining. London; Printed by George Eyre and Andrew Strahan, 1825. xx, 109, 21 pp. Folio (13-1/4" x 8-1/4"). Contemporary three-quarter calf over plain-paper boards, gilt title and paper shelf label to spine, untrimmed edges. Moderate rubbing with wear to spine ends and corners, boards and preliminaries partially detached. Light toning, light foxing to a few leaves, small library stamp to title page. $500. * Hammond, a barrister and legal reformer, was commissioned by Parliament to propose a code of English criminal law. Between 1823 and 1829 he produced a series of six codes under the general title The Criminal Code. Although the codes weren't adopted, they formed the basis of Peel's Acts, the first substantial reform of English criminal law. In turn, Peel's acts paved the way for the Criminal Law Consolidation Acts 1861. Printed in limited numbers for Parliament and the courts, copies of these codes (or sets) are scarce today. OCLC locates 3 copies of the Coining Code in North American law schools (Harvard, Osgoode Hall, Social Law). Sweet & Maxwell, A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 2:153.

HANMER-CLAYBROOKE, Comtesse d' ; [ BALLET DE LA CHENARDIERE, Charlotte Jeanne Camille ]
1825. 1 carnet format in-8 reliure de l'époque plein veau vert estampé à froid de motifs romantiques, circa 1825-1846, 150 ff. manuscrits et env. 40 ff. vierges Beau carnet romantique orné de 300 pages de morceaux choisis manuscrits (manifestement rédigés sur une assez longue période), dont la copie est attribuée à la Comtesse d'Hanmer-Claybrooke (orthographié "Hanmer Kleybrock" au crayon en page de titre, avec la mention "Spoir"). Il s'agit sans doute de Charlotte Ballet de la Chenardière, comtesse d'Hanmer-Claybrooke (et dont le père, Capitaine de dragons, fut tué à Quiberon en 1795), ou peut-être de sa fille Virginie, épouse d'Alexandre Deville. On retrouve notamment des textes de Delille, Chateaubriand ou Lamartine, mais aussi des textes en anglais (Caroline Bowles : "The dying mother to her infant". Une mention au crayon en garde volante (ex-libris manuscrit ?) indique : "Vte S. Dubourg de Bozas Spoir" (Vicomte S.ou R. du Bourg de Bozas). On sait que le château de Spoir, situé près de Chartres et aujourd'hui connu comme "château des Boulard", fut acquis en 1824 par les Hanmer-Claybrook. Un beau témoin des affections et de l'atmosphère littéraire romantique (première garde volante détachée, reliure un peu frottée, mais bon exemplaire par ailleurs) Langue: Français [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Contemporary ownership signature on front free endpaper of Carlton Chase (see below). Pastedowns foxed, but very clean internally. Very good, in unsophisticated condition. Untrimmed. In a half morocco and cloth clamshell case and cloth chemise, spine gilt. The first American printing of the first American furniture finisher's manual, reprinted from the original British edition by G.A. Siddons. This copy bears the contemporary ownership signature of Carlton Chase (1794-1870), the first bishop of New Hampshire and an accomplished furniture maker. A memorial appreciation of Chase noted that his "mechanical taste was great, and his practical skill considerable. His 'work-shop' was a favorite resort when tired with the labors of the study. When [his] Immanuel Parish [in Bellows Falls, Vt.] built a lecture-room, their rector made all the settees for it with his own hands. And many old friends now possess tokens of his kind remembrance in the shape of choice bits of furniture he made for them." ^"A new edition, with considerable additions. Including an appendix containing several valuable tables." Clear and concise instructions are given for dying and staining woods, making glue, making and applying varnish, polishing, japanning, cleaning woods and metals, and much more.

[Wakefield, Priscilla]
London: Geo. B. Whittaker, 1825. First edition. Contemporary boards rebacked with later red cloth. Gentle bumps to corners and edge of front board, but in all a pleasing copy. Ownership signature on the front pastedown from the author and collector John Fowles, dated 1963 (the year of his successful novel, The Collector). Light scattered foxing throughout, with some offsetting from plates. In all, a neat and tight copy. Collates [4], 160: complete, including 3 handcolored plates. Misattributed to her male sources by OCLC records, this scarce book is an important example of women's significant contributions to the development of entomology. Educated rigorously at home in Latin, Greek, and the classics, Priscilla Wakefield early on was committed to work that expanded girls' access to the humanities and sciences. "Wakefield wrote seventeen books, principally moral tales, natural history, and travelogues...Wakefield succeeded because she produced improving and didactic works of non-fiction that middle-class parents were choosing to buy. Unlike Romantic writings that celebrated imagination and fantasy, Wakefield's books have a deliberate tone, are filled with information, and focus on real-life experiences in the present day. Characteristically they have a family setting and promote new-style progressive pedagogy based in domestic conversations; mothers often teach their own children, and girls receive as much attention as boys" (ODNB). In this sense, Wakefield's scientific work drew on the "epistolary and dialogic form that was so crucial to young women's engagement with nat … [Click Below for Full Description]

IMPORTANT LETTER ON EARLY BOLIVIA, ITS SILVER MINES AND QUICKSILVER [BOLIVARIANA] on headed paper of the Ejército Libertador (31x21cm), General Headquarters of Chuquisaca, Upper Peru, 28 May 1825. Double-sided letter written by Venezuelan aristocrat Antonio José de Sucre y Alcalá, one of the most respected liberators of South America. Known as Grand Marshall of Ayacucho, de Sucre was the right-hand man of Simón Bolívar. He served as second President of Bolivia and fourth President of Peru and was one amongst Bolívar's closest friends. De Sucre was the libertador of Bolivia and it is not by chance that the Latin American country s true capital city is Sucre, called so after him, and not La Paz, as it is commonly thought, yet mistakenly. With regard to General William Miller, after fighting under Wellington against Napoleonic forces and then against the United States in North America, he entered South America with the rank of captain of artillery serving under San Martín and Blanco Encalada in the liberation of Chile; he was commandant of marines and chief of land operations under Lord Cochrane and served again under San Martín until the latter s retirement from Peru; he exercised various commands under Bolívar and de Sucre and was commanding general of the combined cavalry in the battles of Junín and Ayacucho; he, then, was appointed president of Puno and president of Potosí, which were the most important mining centres of Upper Peru, before returning to England.

David Reed
Boston, Massachusetts: Francis Y. Carlile, 1825. See item description. View items for sale Exceedingly rare, bound, and complete run of the CHRISTIAN REGISTER, Volume 4, published weekly in Boston in 1825. The 52 issues date from January 8, 1825 (Volume 4, Number 1), through December 31, 1825 (Volume 4, Number 52). The paper on which the newspaper is printed is quite supple even today, having a high rag content, and the pages are clean of handwriting, except for the frequent appearance of the recipient's name (R. H. Green, Esquire) at the tops of many Pages 1, presumably appearing there in order to facilitate delivery by the Post Office. Each issue contains four pages and the newspaper was published weekly on Saturdays. The CHRISTIAN REGISTER was published from April 20, 1821, through June 27, 1835, after which the name of the newspaper was changed to THE CHRISTIAN REGISTER AND BOSTON OBSERVER. In October, 1843, the name was changed back to THE CHRISTIAN REGISTER until 1957, when the name was changed to THE UNITARIAN REGISTER. Four years later the newspaper merged with THE UNIVERSALIST LEADER to become UU WORLD, which continues to be published to this day. The 1825 newspaper contains essays related to religion, particularly Unitarianism, as well as national and local Boston news. David Reed was the publisher during 1825; the following year the publisher would be the American Unitarian Association and in 1827 Mr. Reed resumed the title as publisher. This particular Volume IV is ex-libris, but the only indication of this is a bookplate ("York Institute Library") inside the fr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Wagner, Richard, Komponist (1813-1883).
An den Musikschriftsteller Auguste de Gasperini (1825-1869) in Paris, 11 rue Saint-Lazare, kurz vor der ersten Aufführung von "Tristan und Isolde" am 10. Juni 1865 in München: "Iseult se portant bien Tristan sera samedi soyez le bienvenu. Richard Wagner". Die ersten Sänger von Tristan und Isolde bei der Uraufführung waren Ludwig und Malvina Schnorr von Carolsfeld. - Der künstlerische Höhepunkt des Jahres 1865 war die von Wagner lange ersehnte Uraufführung von "Tristan und Isolde" am Münchener Hof- und Nationaltheater. Sechs Jahre hatte er auf diesen Moment warten müssen. - Nicht im WBV. - Seltenes Dokument zur Uraufführung.
