        exhibiting all the various Alterations & Improvements complete to the Present Time. The Strangers Guide to London and Westminster,

      Published by Edward Mogg, No.51 Charing Cross, January 1st, 1826., London, - Hand-coloured engraved plan, dissected and mounted on linen, list of hackney coach fares to verso, housed within original paper slipcase, with publisher's label, rubbed and scuffed. The plan shows the limits of the City of London in red; the sight of the Bethlem (or Bedlam) Hospital in St George's Fields, which when opened in 1815 contained no glass in the windows due to the "disagreable effluvias peculiar to all madhouses", although it was furnished with a library and a ballroom for the inmates. Also depicted is the gradual construction of Sir Robert Smirke's remodelling of the British Museum. The building site was at the time one of the largest in Europe, the work taking some 25 years to complete.Edward Mogg (fl.1803-1860) was a cartographer, engraver, and publisher, active in London at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Rather unusually for the time he not only drew his own maps, but also engraved them. The business was mainly based upon the production of pocket travel guides and maps. Scale: 4 inches to 1 statue mile.

The five late string quartets contain Beethoven's greatest music, or so at least many listeners in the 20th century came to feel. The first of the five, op. 127 in Eb of 1824-5, shows all the important characteristics of this unique body of music." Joseph Kerman and Alan Tyson (with Scott G. Burnham) in Grove online Folio.

      Mayence chez les fils de B. Schott (c. 1826). Set of parts. - Folio. Title, pp. 2-13, (1) p. (blank); title, pp. 2-12, (1) leaf (blank); title, pp. 2-11, (1) p. (blank); title, pp. 2-11, (1) p. (blank). Lithographic title,engraved music (pl.-no. 2351). Sewn, no binding; in modern cassette. Later issue (see Weinhold in: Dorfmüller S. 258) of the first edition (Mainz imprint, with puiblisher's address in Paris, without 2 blank leaves after title of violin 1 / thus Hirsch). The full score appeared later but still in 1826. In 1822 the Russian prince, Nikolai Galitzin, wrote to "Monsieur Louis van Beethoven a Viennes" and requested "un, deux ou trois Nouveaux Quatuors". With the first of the three Galitzin-Quartets Beethoven began immediately on completion of the 9th Symphony in 1824 (he could count on the preliminary work carried out during the previous two years), and in March 1825 he dispatched the full score to St. Petersburg. Already, on 6th March, the Schuppanzigh Quartet had performed the premiere, although of moderate quality. The composer himself saw the problem not so much in a technique that was too demanding, as lying in the work's structure which had made playing together more difficult given the short amount of time for rehearsal. The "blurring the difference between the primary and the secondary parts, and the playing with alternate attraction and repulsion have become important elements of the concept" (Caeyers p. 727). The composer had even set out the sketches in four parts (although he used to outline his symphonies in only one part), and he insisted that the first edition of the parts and that the full score of later quartets were published simultaneously (for op. 127, for example, they were separated by 3 months, before this it might have been years), in order that the comprehension of the complex structure would be made easier. A few markings with pencil. Green fore-edges. Slightly browned throughout and in places finger-stained. Old handwritten pagination relating to an old "sammelband". Kinsky/Halm p. 385; Dorfmüller pp. 18, 232, 258, 350; Hirsch IV, 399; coll. Hoboken 2, 511; BHB J Van der Spek op. 95; cf. cat. Munich 265.

        Voyages dans la Grèce accompagnés de recherches archéologiques, et suivis d'un aperçu sur toutes les entreprises scientifiques qui ont eu lieu en Grèce depuis Pausanias jusqu'à nos jours.

      2 volumes. L'Imprimerie de Firmin Didot, Paris 1826-1830. Small folio (42x27,5 cm) and large 4to (37x26 cm), on 2 types of paper (volume. 1 "En papier vélin, in fol.", volume 2 "En papier fin"). XX+(1-129) + XXII+(131-)314 pages. 62 engraved illustrations, of which 30 are plates (plates no. 11, 19, 20, 21 & 27 are double-plates). Most engraved illustratrions with protective tissue paper. 4 illustrations are handcoloured. Untrimmed in publishers printed boards (Bauzonnet, Paris). Bindings with shelfwear to edges; corners bumped. Spine-ends somewhat worn. Surfaces of bindings browned.. Brunet I,1273. First edition, all published. Pioneering work on Greece with focus on archaeological aspects by the Danish archaeologist Peter Oluf Brøndsted (1780-1842), who travelled and worked in Greece (then still under Osmannic occupation) from 1810 to 1813. He participated in excarvations in Athens and elsewhere in the country. It took him more than a decade to get the first volumes of his account published, but he succeeded in getting it out in both a German and a French version - in a worthy, state-of-the art bibliophile publication. Lack of fundings caused the magnificent work - planned in eight volumes - to remain a torso. Brøndsted is thus considered a pioneer in modern classical archaeology, where the field work is considered a precondition for theoretical studies. ** Outstanding set. Volume 1 with inscription from Brøndsted: "Deres Höihed Prinds Christian Frederik Prinds af Danmark underdanigst fra Forfatteren, Paris , den 28. Januar 1826". Volume 2 with the signature of Danish early 20th century sculptor Utzon-Frank on verso of front board. *** The Danish crown prince Christian Frederik (from 1839 king Christian VIII) was Brøndsted's benefactor and shared eagerly the latter's interests in Greece. The prince was a keen collector of Greek antiques and must have appreciated Brøndsted's book sincerely

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Wien, 2. X. 1826.. ½ S. 4to.. An Franz Xaver von Peball, den Verweser des Kommunitäts-Radwerks Nr. VI in Vordernberg (Steiermark): "Bis jetzt bleibet es bey meinem Abgehen von hier am 8-9. worüber ich bereits mein Haus benachrichtigte [...] neues giebt es hier gar nicht - und das Gerüchte rücksichtlich Göß scheint nur zu den vielen Lügen zu gehören welche aus Leoben kommen, indeß will ich doch des Spaßes wegen nachfragen [...] Unser Kaiser ist sehr gesund und da alle Leute Ihm [!] zu Pferde sehen so werden die falschen Gerüchte auf einige Zeit still seyn [...]". - Erzherzog Johann, der 1822 das Vordernberger Radgewerk Nr. 2 erworben hatte, sollte bis zum Ende des Jahrzehnts die anderen ortsansässigen Radmeister vom Eintritt in eine "Bergunion" überzeugen, deren Gründungsvertrag heute als eigentliches Gründungsdokument der Oesterreichisch-Alpine Montangesellschaft (ÖAMG) gilt, aus der im vergangenen Jahrhundert die Vereinigten Österreichischen Eisen- und Stahlwerke (VÖEST) und später die Voestalpine AG hervorgehen sollte. Unter Johanns Einfluß auch ersteigerte die "Vordernberger Radmeisterkommunität" das Stift Göss, wo auf die Initiative des Erzherzogs hin eine bergmännische Lehranstalt, die "Steiermärkisch-Ständische Montanlehranstalt", gegründet wurde, die 1849 nach Leoben verlegt werden sollte und aus der 1904 die "Montanistische Hochschule" und 1975 die "Montanuniversität Leoben" hervorging. - Etwas gebräunt und mit kleineren Randläsuren.

        Album with rice paper paintings.

      [China, late 18th century].. Album of 11 Chinese gouache paintings of noble ladies on rice paper. Ca. 19 x 30 cm each, mounted on Chinese wove paper with blue silk borders. Contemporary cloth.. The paintings show eleven Chinese courtesans dressed in lavish gowns and robes wearing brightly coloured lotus shoes, seated at the table or reclining, performing various kinds of handicraft (weaving, spinning, needlepoint), smoking, etc. Courtesan albums, especially early ones, are considerably rarer than their botanical and tradesmen counterparts. These paintings share similarities with those acquired in 1826 by Franz Josef I, Emperor of Austria and reproduced by Payer-Thurn in "Chinesische Miniaturen aus dem Leben einer chinesischen Dame" (Leipzig 1924). - Occasional wrinkling or even tears to rice paper; some foxing to backing paper. Provenance: Acquired in the East by Henry Boyle Byrne (1787-1807), who drowned in the Bay of Calcutta (cf. Maryland Genealogical Society Bulletin 43 [2002], p. 63), but sent the set home to Patrick Byrne of Philadephia, PA; then by descent through the family; last at the family home, The Woodlands, in Clopper, MD (built by Francis Cassatt Clopper in 1810). Includes handwritten note of provenance by a family member.

        Report of the Committee of the Benevolent Society of New South Wales

      Sydney: Monitor" Press, 1826. Duodecimo, 24 pp., some foxing particularly to the title and last page; very good in twentieth-century "Mackaness morocco" Relief of the poor in 1820s Sydney. Early Sydney printing from the press of the Monitor. The Benevolent Society was set up 'to relieve the Poor, Distressed, the Aged, and the Infirm, and thereby to discountenance, as much as possible, Mendicity and Vagrancy…'. One of the Society's most important institutions was the Asylum on George Street, near the old Sydney Burial Ground, demolished in 1901 to make way for Central. The Society was a veritable who's who of Sydney, with Governor Darling and his wife as patrons, and a committee that included Alexander Berry, Gregory Blaxland, Samuel Marsden, Ralph Mansfield, and William Bland (the last as "Surgeon"). The report confirms that although the Society had had some reverses, a high point had been the visit of the Darlings to the George Street Asylum, after which all of the inmates were given a dinner of roast beef, plum pudding and 'Colonial Beer.' Other iniatives include help with replacing horses and boats to deserving tradesmen, the establishment of a Dispensary, and a decision that all fines for public intoxication be given to the Society by the police - the current quarter has netted an impressive Sixty Spanish Dollars. The work also includes the Asylum Rules, the general accounts, and a list of life members. The work was printed by Arthur Hill who was active as a publisher in Sydney from 1826-33. A bon vivant, sometime actor, and, together with his wife Ann, tavern owner, Hill arrived in Sydney as a convict on board the Mary in 1819. In 1826 he became the printer of the new Sydney paper the Monitor (edited by E.S. Hall), a paper which played a very important part in the political and social struggles of the time and was on the side of Wentworth and the Australian. Hill only remained involved with the Monitor for less than a year, but it was during this time that he also published the Reverend Threlkeld's very important Specimens of a Dialect. Hill is listed as subscribing one pound to the Society.

        'Result of an Examination... of the Heads of 148 convicts on board the convict ship England...' [in] The Phrenological Journal and Miscellany Vol. IV

      Edinburgh: October 1826 - November, 1827. Octavo, a little toning to the pages but generally good; contemporary green half calf, spine banded and gilt, a little bumped. Full year's run of this journal, which includes a fascinating article on the phrenological experiments - the first of their kind - carried out on board the convict ship England in the spring of 1826. The article is entitled: 'Result of an Examination, by Mr James de Ville, of the Heads of 148 convicts on board the convict ship England, when about to sail for New South Wales in the Spring of 1826' (pp. 467-71). In his youth De Ville (1777-1846) worked as the assistant to a sculptor, and this expertise with plaster-of-paris led to him being asked to make phrenological casts, and he soon immersed himself in the newly emerging practice, writing pamphlets and lecturing. His reading of the heads of the convicts on board the England was one of his great successes: the navy surgeon on board, one Dr Thomson, hosted De Ville for his experiment in the spring of 1826, at the suggestion of Mr Wardrop of London. The article notes that 'Mr De Ville furnished [Thomson] with a distinct memorandum of the inferred character of each individual convict, and pointed out the manner in which the dispositions of each would probably appear in his general conduct on the passage. The desperadoes were all specifically noted, and a mode of treatment to prevent mischief suggested. One man in particular was noted as very dangerous, from his energy, ferocity, and talent for plots and profound dissimulation. His name was Robert Hughes.' Thomson kept a log during the voyage which was deposited in the Victualling Office, and the present article details some events from this log, including a plan by Hughes and his co-conspirator Thomas Jones to seize the ship and run it for South America. Needless to say such forethought was very pleasing to Thomson, and the article also includes his single-page letter written from Sydney on 9 October 1826, with his note that the convicts 'were going to rip up the poor doctor like a pig.'.

Line-engraved title and twenty-one line- and stipple-engraved plates by and after Blake. Also with an additional letterpress title-page, not issued with the book. Evidence of the word proof on the lower edge of engravings number 5, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 14, 18 and 20.Bound in quarter reverse calf over black cloth. Spine lettered and ruled in gilt. With black and red morocco spine labels, lettered in gilt. Marbled endpapers. Corners a bit bumped, and cloth lightly scuffed. Sheets mounted on stubs. A bit of very light foxing to some of the sheets, generally not affecting engravings. A fine, strikingly clean copy of ìBlakeís most widely known achievementî (Keynes).The engravings were commissioned by John Linnell on March 25, 1823. Despite the date 1825 on the engravings, the plates were not actually issued until March 1826. The entire edition consisted of 315 sets: 150 ìProofî sets on India paper and sixty-five on French paper were printed in March 1826, at which time the word ìProofî was removed from the plates and 100 sets were printed on drawing paper (see Bentley). Blakeís original copperplates remained in the possession of the Linnell family, and as late as 1863, Linnell was offering for sale sets of the India-paper and French-paper issues. By 1874 these must have been sold, as a further 100 sets of the engravings were printed at that time (the present copy is from this set). No more pulls were taken between 1874 and 1919, when the copperplates were given by Herbert Linnell to the British Museum.Linnell's son wrote "My father considered the plates at the last [1874] were as good as they ever were, for the work being cut by a graver, and not etched, it is durable- and is not worn by the printing as is the case with an etching."

        An Account of the State of Agriculture & Grazing in New South Wales

      London: J. Cross, 1826. Tall octavo, with a coloured folding frontispiece and four aquatint plates (three in colour), & the rare large folding map by J. Cross, half-title, engraved bookseller's ticket (G.F. Cruchley) tipped in, some offsetting; an excellent untrimmed copy in the original printed boards a little darkened at spine; in an attractive tan calf book-form box by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. With the Sydney panorama. A famous rarity and a remarkably attractive copy: this is the special issue of a title that is extremely uncommon in any form, complete with the extra large folding map and the panoramic coloured view of Sydney. The highly decorative map is dedicated to Captain Phillip Parker King, who had just completed his cartographic work on the vessels Mermaid and Bathurst. The first book on Australian agriculture, it was written by a noted early settler, father of the novelist Louisa Atkinson, and first husband of Charlotte Barton, author of the first Australian children's book. Atkinson's account of the agricultural and pastoral frontier, based on several years' personal experience, is at once a practical guide and a descriptive survey of the agricultural districts and large establishments. A remarkably attractive book, it is well illustrated with aquatints of very fine quality. The splendid folding frontispiece, one of the best early printed views of Sydney, is probably based on the painting by Richard Read now in the National Library of Australia. Another of the plates is important as the earliest published ground-plan of an Australian house, offered by Atkinson as appropriate to the requirements of a pioneering agriculturist. Broadbent (The Australian Colonial House) suggests that Atkinson's design was modelled on Oldbury, the house that he had built in the early 1820s. Rebuilt in 1828, it is now the oldest surviving house in the Southern Highlands of New South Wales. The other three hand-coloured aquatints show scenes from an "exploring party" of two settlers and three Aborigines, one of the latter in European clothes. presence and industry of civilised men…' (An Account, p. 7). Through his own farming endeavours as well as his writing - in particular this seminal work - Atkinson was 'trying to raise the efficiency of farming in New South Wales; ploughing competitions, stock breeding, cheese making and dingo eradication all claimed his attention… The Agricultural and Horticultural Society regarded it as a judicious and ably written treatise, and awarded him a gold medal' (ADB). This copy was sold by the Mapseller and Publisher G.F. Cruchley, and has his elaborate advertising ticket on the front paste-down. Cruchley was a successor to the cartographer John Cary and, the ticket notes, was associated with Arrowsmith.
