FIRST AMERICAN EDITION. Printed in 1825. Printed the year following Byron's death (he died in 1824). The First Collected Edition is generally attributed to the later London Edition of 1832-1833 by John Murray, with an introduction by Thomas Moore, which included the posthumous Letters and Journals first printed in 1830.

Little attention is likely given to this lowly American Edition, though it technically precedes the First London Edition by 8 years, and is technically the First Collected Edition of Lord Byron's Complete Works.

He subsequently returned on 4 occasions between 1812 and 1824, during which time he travelled extensively in the Guianas and across the northern part of South America. He was one of the first to observe the birds and animals of the tropics. He described his discoveries in this book 'Wanderings in South America,' which inspired Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace. This 1825 first edition of Waterton's 'Wanderings' catered to the reading public's taste for adventures with its descriptions of a fight with a boa constrictor and the capture of crocodiles and his descriptive writing caused a stir in Victorian England with the publication of a drawing of a half man, half animal creature he was supposed to have seen labeled on the frontispiece 'The Nondescript'.

DURAS, Claire de Durfort, duchesse de.
Paris, 16 July, 1825. Manuscript, 8vo (160 × 115 mm), pp. [59], plus several blanks at rear. Occasional dampstaining. In a neat and mostly legible hand throughout. Original green morocco backed boards with booksellers ticket ('Au Coq Honoré, Rue du Coq St Honoré. Alph. Giroux'.) Rubbed, corners slightly more worn. An autograph manuscript of Claire Duras's Pensées de Louis XIV; her first book, composed in March 1821, but not published in print until Didot's small edition of 1827 (very rare with OCLC recording the Bn copy only). Claire Duras is best known as the author of the novel Ourika (1824) famously recounting the true story of black slave girl brought up in France. Ourika, like the Pensées de Louis XIV, was first aired in her celebrated literary salon, described as 'among the most brilliant of the Restoration period' (Oxford Companion to French Literature). Duras was an important member of the circle around Chateaubriand who she met while in exile in England and who became a frequenter of her salon. Duras' dedication inscription in our manuscript is to their mutual friend, Louise Angélique de Vintimille (1763-1831) another well-known salon hostess. Like Chateaubriand and many of their circle in Restoration Paris, Duras looked back at the reign of Louis XIV as a golden age and eagerly read his Mémoires in the two editions published respectively by Montagnac and Grouvelle in 1806. It was a fashionable preoccupation to select, collect and discuss the maxims of the Sun King, presumably as a barometer of contemporary government, but surely also as treasures of cultivated Fr … [Click Below for Full Description]

L'auteur donne une suite de lettres adressées à une demoiselle, exposant différents cas tirés de la littérature médicale et de l'expérience de l'auteur, qui ne font que reprendre ceux déjà exposés par Tissot. Il y présente de façon dramatique les maladies et pathologies qu'encourent les filles s'adonnant à la masturbation, résumées dans la seconde lettre : "Les personnes livrées à l'égarement de la solitude... présentent plus ou moins promptement les symptômes de la consomption dorsale ; elles n'ont point dès l'abord de … [Click Below for Full Description]

Israel's Advocate]
John P. Haven / American Society for Meliorating the Condition of the Jews, 1825. [New York]: John P. Haven / American Society for Meliorating the Condition of the Jews, 1825. First Edition. Self-wrappers. Near fine. Octavo, pp. 18-32. Near fine in self-wrappers, with old horizontal folds, long flattened. Bright and clean. Very faint old library stamp on the front wrap (this came from a small collection that was deaccessioned long ago). A very scarce Baptist pamphlet, which advocated the conversion of Jews to Christianity. The beginning of this issue discusses the vague beginnings of an idea to "resettle" American Jews into a colony where they would be converted to Christianity. It continues with a review of the latest news from similar organizations in London and in Europe. Slightly more common than this periodical appears to be a rival publication, published by Solomon Jackson, entitled "The Jew," which was a direct reaction to what he saw as a threat from the publishers of "Israel's Advocate." Though known to institutions, library holdings are scarce and often incomplete. We find possible full runs at The American Antiquarian Society, Columbia, Harvard, and a single issue at Princeton. A rare and important periodical, documenting interfaith relations during the period between the Revolution and the Civil War. Not in Howes.

Almanac. Enfield, Mass. Freemasonry]. Philo Astronomiae
Printed and sold [by John Howe], price 5 dollars a groce, 50, 1825. First Edition. Softcover. 24 pp., title vignette depicting the symbolic Masonic triangle and compass. Collation: [A-B]2 [C-D]4 COMPLETE. Old wrappers, stitched. Scattered light to moderate foxing. Very good. ¶ Highly curious "Free-Mason Almanac," printed in Enfield, Mass., a town that no longer exists and now lies completely submerged beneath the Quabbin Reservoir, in Hampshire County. Incorporated in 1818, and disincorporated in 1938, Enfield was centered at the junction of the east and west branches of the Swift River. The last building in Enfield was razed in 1940. The Quabbin Reservoir is the primary water supply of Boston, some 65 miles to the east. ¶ Whereas the printer of the above Almanac is not named, the only printer in Enfield was John Howe (1784-1845) who also printed at Greenwich. This is the last in a long series of almanacs he published; it would appear that it the only Masonic item that Howe ever printed, almanac or otherwise. The preceding issues were entitled Howe's Almanac and Howe's Genuine Almanac. The title-page format of the present work is virtually identical with that of Howe's Genuine Almanac for 1824 and 1825. Contains a "Charade, for Howe's Almanac" (p. [22]) and an article on Freemasonry (pp. [22-23]). REFERENCE: Clifford Shipton, "Publications of the Howes of Enfield and Greenwich" in: Proceedings of the AAS, vol. 60, pt. 2 (1950), pp. 222. ¶ Scarce: while there is a copy at AAS, Worldcat lists only N-YHS and Amherst College.

Salucci 97 ° 515 in the lower right corner and Chatlotte in the lower left corner. View of the hermitage of Calmadoli in the upper valley of the Arno in Tuscany. It was made in Florence by Salucci, a lithographer who worked for the Bonaparte family, and who, among other things, produced a portrait of Napoleon III (Bibliothèque nationale de France). This lithograph of exceptional quality was realized for Charlotte Bonaparte (mention Charlotte lower left). The Tuscan village of Camaldoli, the cradle of the Benedictine order of the Camaldolese from the early eleventh century, only guessing through the vegetation, its two towers rebuilt 1713 visible between two trees. The monastery was a favorite stop of the spouses Bonaparte, Napoleon Charlotte and Louis, siblings and nephews cousins of Napoleon 1st, married in 1826 in Florence. Their common passion for the arts leads them to frequent artists who encourage them in their intense activity and with whom they collaborate, such as Salucci, who performs this lithography for Charlotte Bonaparte, but also the engraver Samuele Jesi, the painter Leopold Robert or the draftsman Giovanni Riveruzzi ... Both travel the region whose landscapes inspire them and stay in the Tuscan villages to which they are attached. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Lithographie originale signée Florence Lit.
