        Biographical Sketches and Interesting Anecdotes of Persons of Colour

      York, Printed and Sold by W. Alexander & Son …; sold also by Harvey and Darton, W. Phillips, E. Fry, and W. Darton, London; R. Peart, Birmingham; D. F. Gardiner, Dublin, , 1826. Compiled by … Octavo (176 × 103 mm) contemporary maroon half skiver on marbled boards, gilt double-ruled compartments to the spine. Contemporary ownership inscription of John Fletcher to the front free endpaper. Slightly rubbed, some foxing and browning, as usual, but overall very good. First English edition, which omits the poetry included in American editions, a note verso of the final contents leaf reads; "In the present edition, one or two of the narratives have been rather extended, and several pieces omitted, which appeared to possess but little interest, or to be unappropriate [sic.] to the plan of the work." Abigail Mott (1766-1851) was born into a prominent Quaker family in West Chester Country, New York. An early memoir of her remarks on how "She entertained a lively sympathy with the suffering class of her fellow creatures, from whatever cause those sufferings might arise …She felt tenderly for that oppressed portion of the human family, whose rights as men are torn from them, and they doomed to a state of bondage that is to be transmitted from parents to their children …The depressed condition of the people of color in the "Free States" likewise attracted her attention and her commiseration. From a desire to promote their improvement, she wrote and published "Sketches" of the characters of those of their own people who had most distinguished themselves, with the hope of exciting a spirit of emulation by such examples, that might tend to the elevation of their character. " (Memoir of Purchase Monthly Meeting concerning Abigail Mott, New York, James Egbert, 1852.) It is interesting to note that the anonymous memorialist accentuates Mott's desire to inspire emulation among the slaves themselves, whereas in her own preface she clearly stresses "the dreadful consequences of that arbitrary power invested in the slave-holder over his fellow being … to show how it hardens the heart and petrifies the feelings … [those] being trained up in the midst of Slavery, and inured from their infancy to see the sufferings of the poor slaves, and to hear their cries, become almost insensible to the responsibility of their station, and the enormity of the evils they are committing." On a more practical level, recent research has shown that Abigail and her sister Lydia were highly active in the Underground Railroad in the Albany area; "The Mott sisters were Quakers who regularly aided fugitives passing through the city from the late 1820s onwards and were instrumental in forming the Albany Female Antislavery Society … Lydia tutored the nine-year-old daughter of Frederick Douglass in the late 1850s." (Switala, Underground Railroad in New Jersey and New York, 2006) Blockson (Hippocrene Guide to the Underground Railroad) tells how a Massachusetts sailor, Austin Bearse, assisted the sisters in securing the escape of "a slave they had secreted just out of the city, who was in danger." The biographies here include Phillis Wheatley, Ignatius Sancho, Gustavus Vassa, Toussaint L'Ouverture, and Zilpha Montjoy. Interesting to note the Quaker connection continued, London publication being dealt with by the very Quaker conger of Harvey and Darton, W. Phillips, E. Fry, and W. Dalton. Uncommon, COPAC locates just 4 copies - BL, Oxford and Leeds - OCLC has 12 copies in America, this a very nice copy in unrestored contemporary condition.

The log commences on the 3rd December 1827, in the East India Company Export Dock, London, and covers the voyage to Bengal, then to China, and the return to England. The ship carried soldiers for India as well as cargo and cast off on the 19th December. However, Private John Cheeseman of the 14th Regiment had hardly had time to receive 200 lashes before a conference of officers decided the ship was not seaworthy and that they should return to the Thames. After much toing and froing the the log begins again on the 25th March 1828 off Dungeness Lighthouse. The outward journey log records general nautical details such as weather and heading together with the births, deaths; and the rather frequent floggings, the soldiers getting much the worse of it, usually receiving 200 lashes compared with the sailors nominal two dozen.The ship reaches Calcutta on the 1st July, and anchors in Sanjar Roads, unloading passengers and cargo and taking on goods, mostly cotton. On the 19th September she weighs anchor for China arriving at Whampong Reach on the 6th November, where she loaded tea and other goods, before leaving for England on the 17th February 1829. The log ends on the 2nd of June 1829.The 'Thomas Coutts' was built by Frances Barnard, Son & Roberts, in the Blackwall yard for Stewart Marjoribanks, a merchant involved with the East India Company. She was launched on the 17th September 1817 under the name of 'Thomas Coutts'; with a tonnage of 1424 9/94, and dimensions of 138 by 43.4 by 17.1 feet. The East India Company chartered her on the 31st December 1817. Her first two voyages were under the command of Captain William Marjoribanks, who was relieved of command on the 31st December by Captain Alexander Chrystie. She made eight voyages between 1817 and 1833 under the auspices of the East India Company. Although no longer chartered by the Company after 1833, she continued to make regular runs to India and China up until 1845. In 1841 she was sold to famous ship-owner Joseph Soames, and in 1845 was broken up.Her most memorable voyage was her 1826/1827 run to China and India. In March 1826, carrying goods and mail, she left England and arrived in Bombay harbour three months later, on June 2, only 82 days from the Channel. From Bombay she went on to China, leaving the Indian port in August and calling at Singapore and Macao. She left China on November 23, reaching St. Helena late in January 1827, finally arriving in the Downs on March 2, 1827. This was the fastest voyage on record, out and home in 10 days less that a year.

        XenophontisMemorabilia Socratis

      XenophonTranslated by Johann Gottlob SchneiderWith additional annotations by Ludwig Dindorf, 1826 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Areally goodcopy of Xenophon's most famous Socratic writings, Memorabilia. Bound in full calf leather with gilt lettering and decoration. The Memorabilia are the lengthiest and most famous of Xenophon's Socratic writings. The Memorabiliaare essentially an apologia, a defence, of Socrates. It is Xenophon's own defence of Socrates, offering edifying examples of Socrates' conversations and exploits along with commentary and explanation. This copyincludes both the Greek and Latin texts. Xenophon, ca. 430 - 354 BC,was a soldier, mercenary and a contemporary and admirer of Socrates. He is known for his writings on the history of his own times, preserving the sayings of Socrates, and the life of ancient Greece. Xenophon was born into the ranks of the upper classes, thus granting him access to certain privileges of the aristocracy of ancient Attica. While a young man, Xenophon participated in the expedition led by Cyrus the Younger against his older brother, the emperor Artaxerxes II of Persia, in 401 BC. Johann Gottlob Theaenus Schneider, 17501822, was a German classicist and naturalist. In 1774 he became secretary to the famous Strasbourg scholar Richard Franois Brunck, and in 1811 became professor of ancient languages and eloquence at Breslau. The scientific writings of ancient authors especially attracted him, and he translated the works of many ancient scholars. Ludwig August Dindorf, 1805 1871, was a German classical philologist. He studied classical philology at the University of Leipzig, and before completing his studies had published works by Xenophon. Throughout his life, Dindorf worked on many editions of scholarly and historicalclassical works. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is some mild wear to the extremities, including some mild rubbing, with slightsunning to the spine. Internally the pages are bright with intermittent spots that become prominent on the endpapers. Overall the condition is very good..

        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.

"After completing the Ninth Symphony in early 1824, Beethoven spent the two and a half years that remained to him writing with increasing ease, it seems, and exclusively in the medium of the string quartet. 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. Sewn. Preserved in a custom-made russett cloth clamshell box with printed paper label to spine. 1f.

        Quatuor pour deux Violons, Alto et Violoncelle composé et dedié a Son Altesse Monseigneur le Prince Nicolas Galitzin Lieutenant Colonel de la Garde de Sa Majesté Impériale de tout les Russies . Oeuvre 127. No. 2351 - Propriété des Editeurs - Pr. 3 Fl. 36 kr.

      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.
