TRAILL, Catharine Parr (Strickland Mrs Traill C P ) [1802-1899]
London: Printed for Harvey & Darton, 1826. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. First Edition. Title page dated 1826. 5.5 x 3.5 inches, [2],iv,168, [4, ads.] Original cloth rebacked preserving original spine, contemporary owner's signature on title-page, light off-setting from frontispiece to title-page, engraved frontispiece, a very good copy of an uncommon juvenile, in very good condition. TPL 1422. Osborne p. 192. Not in Watters. Not in Morgan. Not in Lande. In a series of letters, written in 1821, by a family of educated emigrants, describing the voyage and journey from Quebec to final settlement in what is now Hamilton. They were befriended by the Hamilton family and started the first school there, chiefly attended by Indian children. Told with simplicity. It has value as being authentic. One of the earliest children's books to celebrate the frontier life in Canada; Traill emigrated from England to Canada with her husband in 1832. Insightful comment from Canadian Biography Online: "Perhaps the most interesting of these books (published between 1819 & 1831) is The young emigrants; or, pictures of Canada; calculated to amuse and instruct the minds of youth (1826). In it, Catharine drew upon her fascination with Daniel Defoe's Robinson Crusoe, travel books about the Canadas, including those of John Howison, and the letters of friends who, like her younger brother Samuel*, had immigrated there in the 1820s. The comment of one of her young emigrants - "I sometimes think I should like to spend my life in exploring the face of this astonishing country" - vividly … [Click Below for Full Description]

[FREYCINET VOYAGE] ARAGO, Jacques; engraved by E. FORGET.
Paris: after 1820 and before final publication in 1826. Early proof plate before letters and number; manuscript caption and notes, bold ink note with instructions to engraver. Early stage of an important engraving from the official account of Louis de Freycinet's voyage in the Uranie and a remarkable image, engraved after the voyage artist Jacques Arago's depiction of a Papuan. The expedition spent some time in Papuan waters and several weeks between the small islands of Waigeo and Rawak: the native of Waigeo island is depicted as a noble figure, complete with bone hair ornament, but stricken with a type of leprous ailment endemic to his region. Freycinet, closely involved with every stage of the preparation of his voyage account, has annotated the proof engraving in bold ink with instructions to the engraver: "The general tone of this engraving is too dark; moreover the engraver hasn't succeeded in depicting the effect of the disease that the drawing represents and which has to be indicated by the small generally concentric lines which appear on the drawing and which we look for in vain here. The general colour tone of the skin of this figure has to be lowered; on the other hand, the leprous lines need to be better distinguished from the background colour." This is a very good example of Freycinet's exceptional attention to detail and search for accuracy, graphic as well as textual: the relationship between proof and final versions demonstrates not only that precision, but also the accuracy of his description of the actual medical condition and its effect upon the skin (co … [Click Below for Full Description]

Conybeare, John Josias; Conybeare, William Daniel (editor); [Conybeare, Mary]
Harding and Lepard, London, 1826. First edition of John Josias Conybeare's landmark anthology, containing the first modern English translation of portions of Beowulf, along with the original Anglo-Saxon text and a Latin translation: "Swift rush'd the hero forwards, all his care / Lest the dark murderer scape, and wing his flight / To fen and fastness." The anthology also includes the first appearance in print of a number of Anglo-Saxon fragments from the Exeter Manuscript, which like Beowulf are accompanied by Latin and modern English translations. Oxford professor of poetry Conybeare was at the forefront of the nineteenth-century English revival of interest in Saxon England; he "was almost the first . . . to move back the focussing-point sufficiently to get all English literature under view" (Saintsbury, A History of Criticism and Literary Taste in Europe). Conybeare died unexpectedly in 1824, midway through his work on this anthology, which was completed by his brother. His widow Mary Conybeare inscribed this copy to a "Dr McDonnell" on the upper board; an ink note records the date of the gift on the front pastedown. A very good presentation copy of a milestone in the study of English literature. Octavo, measuring 9 x 6 inches: viii, xcvi, 286, [2]. Original drab paper boards, rebacked, endpapers and final pastedown renewed, text block uncut. Introductory essay on meter; "addenda et corrigenda" at rear; final errata leaf.

MILLIN, Aubin-Louis.
Paris: Girard, Libraire-Éditeur, 1826. Paris: Girard, Libraire-Éditeur,, 1826. Octavo (193 x 117 mm). 19th-century "native" dark blue half morocco with Education Society's Press, Bycullah's ticket on rear pastedown, marbled boards, title in gilt on spine, light green endpapers, edges speckled red. Slight rubbing to extremities, marginal water staining, fore edge of p.206 sometime reinforced, light toning; a very good copy. First posthumous edition of this essay first published in 1796 as an introduction to the study of ancient monuments. In this work, Aubin Louis Eleuthérophile Millin de Grandmaison (1759-1818) reviews the various applications of archaeology (which he divides into nine categories: monuments, paintings, sculptures, engravings, mosaics, vases, instruments, medals, and inscriptions), and its purpose, teachings, history, and bibliography. Vinet acknowledges Millin's proficiency in the matter, but deplores that his work is still "narrow-minded" in that it does not grant much importance to the study of monuments of art, "one of the forms of the human mind," as, for Vinet, "it is monuments that lift the veil antiquity was clad in for so long". Provenance: ink ownership inscription dated 1828 to half-title; from the collection of British colonial officer and Arabist, Samuel Barrett Miles (1838-1914), with his black-letter ink stamp, bookplate to front pastedown noting his wife's bequest of his books to Bath Public Reference Library in 1920, and associated manuscript shelf marks and blind stamps as usual.

WOMEN] CHILD, Lydia Maria [Francis
[Boston: 1826]. The earliest Child letter recorded in commerce in at least twenty-five years. In a revealingly intimate and detailed letter, Child writes from Chestnut Street [in Boston], just as she is preparing to return to Watertown where she lives with her brother Convers Francis and his wife Abby. She wishes her sister would write more often, though she acknowledges "you are the mother of a numerous offspring, lovely like yourself, and I a poor, isolated spinster." She says she is hoping to send a portrait of herself which she had had done, which she hopes Mary will like: "If it has any fault, it is because the artist has too much genius. He wanted to make a Sappho of me, and to pour over my very ugly face the full tide of inspiration." She mentions that she is to take a large school in Watertown which she does not particularly like, but feels the need to replenish her finances which "this winter's campaign" has much depleted. She also expresses some concern that she must live with her brother and his wife, saying "[r]elations never ought to live together, unless they keep debt and credit like strangers...." Lydia speaks of studying French and drawing so as to better suit herself for a position at a first rate school because she is convinced she will never marry - a prospect she seems to accept as natural, given her personality: "Just in proportion to my conspicuousness, I have had enemies and friends, and I have deserved them both. Oh, how often I have wanted you to fly to, for advice and assistance. If people knew half the extent of my vehement and impetuous temperam … [Click Below for Full Description]

Engelmann lithogr.
Villeneuve, 1826. 19 x 28 cm, 28 x 41 cm, Etwas stockfl., rückseitig Montagespuren, kleine Randläsuren - gutes dekoratives Blatt. En 1295, La vidamie de Montreux (dans la paroisse de Montreux) fut achetée par Girard d'Oron à l'évêque de Sion. En 1317, Girard II en céda la partie qui deviendra Les Planches au comte de Savoie alors que la seigneurie du Châtelard est conservée; depuis cette date et pendant les 600 années suivantes, le Châtelard sera séparé de Montreux1. Par mariage, elle revint en 1338 à François, baron de La Sarraz, bailli de Vaud et du Chablais. En 1352, le comte Amédée VI de Savoie lui demanda l'édification d'un château fort devant servir de refuge en cas d'invasion. La construction fut finalement entreprise par Jean de Gingins, époux de Marguerite de La Sarraz, de 14402 à 14423. En 1457, il confirma les franchises de la paroisse de Montreux (1449).Vendange au pied du Château de Châtelard près Clarens, Gustave Roux, 1869Le château sera ensuite pillé et brûlé partiellement en 1476 lors des guerres de Bourgogne par l'armée de Gruyère soutenue par Gessenay et le Pays-d'Enhaut. Les Gingins sont dépouillés de leurs biens. Le domaine passera ensuite entre plusieurs mains, dont la ville de Vevey entre 1571 et 1573, pour finalement devenir la propriété du bernois Émmanuel Bondeli, qui sera bailli d'Aubonne. Il restera dans cette famille jusqu'à la révolution vaudoise de 1798.Par la suite, les communes du Châtelard et des Planches fusionnent pour reformer la commune de Montreux en 1961.

MIERS, John.
London: Baldwin, Cradock and Joy, 1826. 2 volumes, octavo (211 x 130 mm). Publisher's dark blue leather, titles and decorations in gilt on spines, Greek-style vase and decorative border blocked in blind on boards, turn-ins gilt, edges gilt, yellow endpapers. Ownership inscriptions on first blank. Light wear to extremities, rubbed, occasional light spotting and toning, a very good set. Illustrated with 3 large folding maps and 19 engraved plates (some folding). First edition of a work that "was to bring [Miers] a lasting reputation as the foremost authority on the geography and way of life of that region" (ODNB). Miers' skills in engineering and botanyearned him an invitation from Lord Cochrane to join the 1818 expedition to develop copper mines in Chile. However, this business venture was not very successful, Miers was after all essentially a scientist, so he soon started investigating the local natural history, paying particularly close attention to the then little known flora. "By 1825 his wide-ranging curiosity had produced material enough for a substantial book and that June he returned to London to arrange for its publication" the following year, and used his time in the capital "to make the acquaintance of several leading botanists" (ibid.). Miers remained in South America until 1838, setting up the national mints of both Argentina and Brazil. Provenance: the ownership inscriptions document a chain of owners from 1837 to 1941: "To John George Beresford from his friend Charles W[illia]m Gordon On his leaving Eton, Christmas 1837."

AFRICAN AMERICAN HISTORY & LITERATURE - CARIBBEAN] CORNET,
Paris? 1826. First Edition. One of the last addresses delivered by the French liberal politican and member of the Chambre des Pairs, the High Court of the French government from 1814 through the fall of the July Monarchy in 1848. Cornet here argues that three black men from Martinique, Jean-Baptiste Volny, Cyrille Bisset (Bissette), and Louis Fabien, who had been brought to France to be tried, had all received life sentences of hard labor due to racial prejudice rather than a just court, the men having "experienced...not only the greatest severity of the laws enforced in that colony, but also that due to the difference in color, their attempts to assure their personal safety have inspired much fear in the white colonists as well as their leaders" (p. [1], our translation). Volny, Bissette, and Fabien, three freedmen, had had their properties confiscated after being found guilty by the royal tribunal in Martinique in 1824 of an attempt to overthrow the colonial government after Bissette circulated a pamphlet highly critical of the civil and political order in the French colonies, claiming the unfair treatment of people of color. Thanks to Cornet's efforts, the sentence would be overturned in 1827, though Bissette would be banished from Martinique. He would remain in Paris, where he worked diligently for the abolitionist movement, founding the journal the "Revues des Colonies" in 1834, and serving on the French National Assembly from 1848 to 1851.

Thanks to Cornet's efforts, the sentence would be overturned in 1827, though Bissette would be banished from Martinique. He would remain in Paris, where he worked diligently for the abolitionist movement, founding the journal the "Revues des Colonies" in 1834, and serving on the French National Assembly from 1848 to 1851.

WOMEN] CHILD, Lydia Maria [Francis]
[Boston: 1826]. The earliest Child letter recorded in commerce in at least twenty-five years. In a revealingly intimate and detailed letter, Child writes from Chestnut Street [in Boston], just as she is preparing to return to Watertown where she lives with her brother Convers Francis and his wife Abby. She wishes her sister would write more often, though she acknowledges "you are the mother of a numerous offspring, lovely like yourself, and I a poor, isolated spinster." She says she is hoping to send a portrait of herself which she had had done, which she hopes Mary will like: "If it has any fault, it is because the artist has too much genius. He wanted to make a Sappho of me, and to pour over my very ugly face the full tide of inspiration." She mentions that she is to take a large school in Watertown which she does not particularly like, but feels the need to replenish her finances which "this winter's campaign" has much depleted. She also expresses some concern that she must live with her brother and his wife, saying "[r]elations never ought to live together, unless they keep debt and credit like strangers."Lydia speaks of studying French and drawing so as to better suit herself for a position at a first rate school because she is convinced she will never marry - a prospect she seems to accept as natural, given her personality: "Just in proportion to my conspicuousness, I have had enemies and friends, and I have deserved them both. Oh, how often I have wanted you to fly to, for advice and assistance. If people knew half the extent of my vehement and impetuous temperament, … [Click Below for Full Description]

[BRILLAT SAVARIN]. UN PROFESSEUR.
Paris: A. Sautelet et Cie, 1826. First edition, the rare first issue with the E in Bourse on the title page at 90 degree angle.. 2 volumes. Pp. [2], [i-vii], viii-xiv [5] 6-390; [1-5], 442. 8vo., handsomely bound in black mroocoo backed marbled boards, spine ruled in gilt with dots and lines, with elaborate border at base, marbled endpapers, rubbed at extremities, occasional very light spotting, otherwise a very good copy. A handsome copy of the first edition of a French classic. Its combination of wit, philosophy, science, anecdotes, culinary chemistry, aphorism, physiology &c was a winning formula and led to demands for its continual reprinting and eventual translation. The first edition was printed in only 500 copies, "edition originale rare et très recherchée" (Oberlé), and this first issue is extremely scarce. Oberle 1544, Vicaire 116-7, Cagle 98. .

CHORIS, Louis.
Paris: Paul Renouard, 1826. Folio. Contemporary marbled paper covered boards, edges untrimmed. Neat pencil annotation to front pastedown. Slight wear to extremities, a little loss to marbled paper at spine ends, light foxing to contents; a very good copy. With 24 handcoloured lithograph plates by F. Noël or de Bove after Choris (no discernible watermarks), with original tissue guards. First edition, one of 50 large-paper copies, first issued in six parts in wrappers, with explanatory text bound-in, and the plates plain or, as here, hand-coloured. This copy, as often, is bound without the two page letter to the "l'Empereur de toutes les Russies", dated 1827, which according to Forbes "does not appear in every copy"; he also notes that "the two Hawaiian plates in this are of the Kailua, Kona area. Plate XVII, Vue dans les îles Sandwich, depicts a group of thatched houses amidst coconut and banana trees with a group of Hawaiian chiefs, or alii, with their kahili-bearing retainers [a kahili is the Hawaiian royal standard]. Plate XVIII, Entrevue de l'Expedition de M. Kotzebue, avec le Roi Tammea-mea, dans l'île d'Ovayhi, shows the formal interview of Kotzebue and senior officers with Kamehameha I and Kaahumanu (and other alii and retainers surrounding) before a thatched house at Kaiakeakua, Kailua, Kona. A heiau [temple] and Hawaiian images appear at the extreme right" (Forbes).

London: John Murray, 1826. Large quarto. Original buff boards, sometime rebacked to style, new label, edges untrimmed. Housed in a custom cloth slipcase. The two leaves of Contents and "Directions for Binding up the Plates" misbound between pp. 258 and 259 of Appendix; contemporary pencilled note at foot of p. 258, "See further on (2 leaves)", indicating that they were misbound at an early point. Wear to extremities, some scuffs and marks to boards, foxing to contents; a very good copy. Folding frontispiece of the Great Volcano of Peli, 2 maps, one of which is folding, and 12 engraved plates after Robert Dampier. First edition. The successful travel writer and illustrator Maria Graham was commissioned to write an account of the voyage of the HMS Blonde by her publishers John Murray in 1825. She compiled the work primarily from George Byron's logbooks, supplemented with papers from the ship's chaplain R. Rowland Bloxam, the naturalist Andrew Bloxam, and interviews with members of the ship's crew. The expedition was undertaken to return the remains of King Kamehameha II and his wife Queen Kamamalu to Hawaii, after both died of measles during their official visit to England in 1824. The work contains a narrative of the expedition, a history of previous British visits, as well as a brief account of the monarch's ill-fated time in England. "When editing the official account, Graham corrects the text to locate the agency of indigenous Hawaiian women in the cultural conversion taking place in early nineteenth-century Hawai'i.
