        The Last of the Lairds: or, the Life and Opinions of Malachi Mailings, esq. of Auldbiggings

      Edinburgh and London - William Blackwood and T. Cadell, 1826. Edinburgh and London - William Blackwood and T. Cadell, 1826 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Adrily amusingScottish social commentarynovel by JohnGalt. First Edition. John Galt (2 May 1779 11 April 1839) was a Scottish novelist, entrepreneur, and political and social commenter. Galt at first directed his ambitions mainly to commerce, but many of his ventures failed. Galt was back in London by 1811 and in the following year the first of his books were published: Life of Cardinal Wolsey, Voyages and Travels, and a collection of plays in blank verse. He was sent by a merchant in Glasgow to open a branch in Gibraltar, but within a year he had to return to London for surgery. Since all his business ventures had come to nothing, he decided to try to earn his living by his pen. He also accepted appointment as what should now be called a lobbyist on behalf of the company promoting the Union Canal between Edinburgh and Glasgow. This gave the familiarity with Westminster and Whitehall which was the basis subsequently both of his involvement in Canadian affairs and of his political novels. In spite of the success of his novels Galt had not abandoned his ambitions in other directions. His parliamentary lobbying experience and his childhood interest in Canada came together in his next venture. Canadians who had suffered losses when the United States invaded in 1812 had been trying in vain to extract compensation from the British government. In 1820 Galt had agreed to act on their behalf, but after two years of effort the government still evaded payment. He then produced another scheme, a proposal for a company to raise capital for the development and settlement of land in Ontario. This could earn revenue which could be used to meet the claims. The company was formed in 1824 with Galt as secretary. He sailed to Canada in 1826 to direct operations there, leaving with Blackwood another novel in his best manner, The Last of the Lairds. DNBCondition: In a half calf binding with marbled boards. Externally very sound, rubbed to extremities. Internally, firmly bound. Lovely and bright with lightscattered foxing. Overall: VERY GOOD.

Le Prince de Condé demanda à Catherine II de Russie un asile pour son armée. En janvier 1793, l'impératrice proposa aux émigrés français, un établissement sur la mer d'Azof, dans le cas ou la République française se consoliderait. Cette colonie aurait eu le Prince de Condé pour chef. Le projet n'aboutit pas, mais le Comte de Castries, Maréchal de camp, participa à un voyage préparatoire, qu'il relate ici. Avec un fac similé hors-texte d'une lettre du Prince de Condé. Exemplaire aux armes de l'impératrice Marie-Louise (1791-1847). Fille aînée de l'empereur François Ier d'Autriche, elle épousa en 1809 Napoléon Ier.

        A Summary of the Principal Evidences for the Truth and Divine Origin of the Christian Revelation

      London - T. Cadell, 1826. London - T. Cadell, 1826 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A Christian essay intended for the instruction of young people following their confirmation. Beilby Porteus (1731 1809), successively Bishop of Chester and of London was an Anglican reformer and leading abolitionist in England. He was the first Anglican in a position of authority to seriously challenge the Church's position on slavery. Hewas one of the most significant, albeit underrated church figures of the eighteenth century. His sermons continued to be read by many, and his legacy as a foremost abolitionist was such that his name was almost as well-known in the early nineteenth century as those of Wilberforce and Thomas Clarkson but a hundred years later he had become one of the forgotten abolitionists, and today his role has largely been ignored and his name has been consigned to the footnotes of history. His primary claim to fame in the twenty-first century is for his poem on Death and, possibly unfairly, as the supposed prototype for the pompous Mr Collins in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Condition: In a half-morocco binding with marbled boards. Externally smart, with just some marks to the boards. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright, with just the odd spot.

With a frontispiece and additional illustrated title. Thomas Day (22 June 1748 28 September 1789) was a British author and abolitionist. He was well-known for the bestselling children's book The History of Sandford and Merton (17831789) which emphasized Rousseauvian educational ideals. Despite its title, The History of Sandford and Merton is not a history in the modern sense but rather an assemblage of stories Day both wrote himself and extracted from a multitude of sources. The text embodies many of the educational and philosophical tenets espoused by Jean-Jacques Rousseau, whom Day admired greatly. Sandford and Merton was his way of presenting Rousseau's philosophy to British children in the form of fiction. Condition: In a cloth binding.

      London - A. and R. Spottiswoode, 1826. London - A. and R. Spottiswoode, 1826 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An attractive edition of Horace's Odes. In Latin. Recensuitet in ordine metrorum dispertivit. Quintus Horatius Flaccus (8 December 65 BC 27 November 8 BC), known in the English-speaking world as Horace, was the leading Roman lyric poet during the time of Augustus. The rhetorician Quintillian regarded his Odes as almost the only Latin lyrics worth reading, justifying his estimate with the words: He can be lofty sometimes, yet he is also full of charm and grace, versatile in his figures, and felicitously daring in his choice of words. The Odes (Latin Carmina) are a collection in four books of Latin lyric poems by Horace. The Horatian ode format and style has been emulated since by other poets. Books 1 to 3 were published in 23 BC. According to the journal Quadrant, they were unparallelled by any collection of lyric poetry produced before or after in Latin literature. A fourth book, consisting of 15 poems, was published in 13 BC. The Odes were developed as a conscious imitation of the short lyric poetry of Greek originals. Pindar, Sappho and Alcaeus are some of Horace's models; his genius lay in applying these older forms to the social life of Rome in the age of Augustus. The Odes have been considered traditionally by English-speaking scholars as purely literary works. Recent evidence by a Horatian scholar suggests they were intended as performance art, a Latin re-interpretation of Greek lyric song. Publisher's catalogue to front few pages. Collated complete from the British Library catalogue, UIN: BLL01001733268. Condition: Expertly rebound in a half morocco binding with cloth covered boards. Externally, lovely condition.

Dr. Thion, whose first name is not given, published just at the point when acupuncture was enjoying a revival in Europe; in France the important works by Berlioz, Sarlandiere, Cloquet and Dantu had just or were about to appear. Thion recommends in his concluding remarks that the acutract system of the Chinese, as seen on the "tsoe bosi" figures brought from China, be at least provisionally adopted. This is a particularly interesting point, as Lu & Needham report "yet in spite of the 'tsoe bosi' figures and all the other information which had come through, albeit imperfectly, no attention whatever was paid to the acu-tract system of China, nor to the loose connection between needling and pulse-diagnosis" (p. 295).

        The Poetical Works of Thomas Gray

      London - John Sharpe, 1826. London - John Sharpe, 1826 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Abeautifully bound and embossedlittle copy of Thomas Gray's poetry. With additional illustrated title and several vignette plates illustrating quotes from the poems. Thomas Gray (26 December 1716 30 July 1771) was a poet, letter-writer, classical scholar and professor at Cambridge University. Gray began seriously writing poems in 1742, mainly after his close friend Richard West died. He moved to Cambridge and began a self-imposed programme of literary study, becoming one of the most learned men of his time, though he claimed to be lazy by inclination. Gray spent most of his life as a scholar in Cambridge, and only later in his life did he begin travelling again. Although he was one of the least productive poets (his collected works published during his lifetime amount to fewer than 1,000 lines), he is regarded as the foremost English-language poet of the mid-18th century. In 1757, he was offered the post of Poet Laureate, which he refused. Gray was so self critical and fearful of failure that he only published thirteen poems during his lifetime, and once wrote that he feared his collected works would be mistaken for the works of a flea. Walpole said that He never wrote anything easily but things of Humour. Gray came to be known as one of the Graveyard poets of the late 18th century, along with Oliver Goldsmith, William Cowper, and Christopher Smart. Gray perhaps knew these men, sharing ideas about death, mortality, and the finality and sublimity of death. Condition: In a decorative full leather binding. Externally verysmart although slightly rubbed. Internally, firmly bound. Bright and generally clean, with spotting to the illustrated title, and plates and adjacent pages. Copperplate ink signature dated 1827 to front blank. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        Poems, Odes, Prologues, and Epilogues, Spoken on Public Occasions at Reading School. Second Edition.

      London: Printed by A. J. Valpy.Sold by G. B. Whittaker Longman and Co.; Baldwin and Co; Cowslade Reading.; 1826 - Large 8vo, 228 x 138 mms., pp. vii [viii blank], 208, uncut, original boars; front free end-paper, creased, spine slightly worn, joints with some paper missing, label defective, corners crushed, but a good copy. In the preface, the classics scholar and schoolmaster Richard Valpy (1754 - 1836) notes that these poems were first recited in 1782 in Reading School; and the first edition was published in 1806. This revised, second edition, with several poems dated 1824, has textual changs as well as new poems. Among the contributors are William Benwell (1765 - 1796), whose sister was married to Valpy; George Butt (1741 - 1795), who contributes a hilarious parody of Milton's L'allegro ed Il Pensoroso; William Bolland (1772 - 1840), who was instrumental in forming the Roxburghe Club; Henry James Pye (1745 - 1813), later the Poet Laureate; and William Seward (1747 - 1799). Valpy observes as well that the practice of acting plays at a school, "however sanction by.many ages, and of venerable establishments, has been question by some writers. If their objections are founded on actual experience, the Editor cannot but respect them. He would scarcely have wished to persist in a branch of Instruction, which he has found to be the most laborious to the Teacher. He can only assert, after a long and and varied trial of the system, that he has found it attended with many beneficial, but not one detrimental, consequence to his Scholars. He cannot be deterred from the proper use of an institution by the sophism of dwelling only on its possible abuse." Uncommon. Copac locates copies of this second edition at BL and Bodleian; WorldCat adds Illinois at Urbana and lists a number of others as "Book," but they turn out to be eBooks. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Sampson's Discourse, And Correspondence With Various Learned Jurists

      , 1826. 1826. An Important American Essay on Codification from the Library of a Notable Harvard Law School Professor Sampson, William [1764-1836]. Thompson, Pishey [1784-1862], Editor. Sampson's Discourse And Correspondence With Various Learned Jurists, Upon The History Of The Law, With the Addition of Several Essays, Tracts, And Documents Relating to the Subject. Washington, D.C.: Printed by Gales & Seaton, 1826. viii, 202 pp. Octavo (9" x 6"). Original publisher's cloth-backed boards, printed paper spine label, untrimmed edges. Some soiling, moderate edgewear, some wear to corners, joints cracked. Light toning to text, light foxing in places. Owner signature of Emory Washburn to front board and front free endpaper, his stamp to head of title page. Later owner signature "Lee / 1896" to front free endpaper and head of title page, annotations in pencil to some leaves, probably by Lee. A nice copy with an interesting association. * First edition. Sampson's Discourse is important example of opposition to English common law and advocacy of codification in the early American Republic. Few could have been better qualified to launch such an assault on the British legal tradition than Sampson, an Irish political immigrant who settled in the United States around 1806. A learned and persuasive advocate, Sampson soon acquired a successful, high profile law practice, often taking the side of the underdog in landmark trials involving the rights of labor and the religious and civil rights of American Catholics (though Sampson was a Protestant). Sampson's natural antipathy to England and his legal erudition made him a formidable spokesman for the cause of legal reform. The Discourse was delivered in 1823 and published separately in 1824; it is joined here by numerous ephemeral pieces by Sampson, and also by others responding pro and con to his incendiary address. Marvin describes Sampson as "the first in our country to fix public attention on ... legal reform." Washburn [1800-1877] was a distinguished legal author and professor at Harvard Law School.

Still, a near fine set. "The first great Mexican historian who, by combining scientific method with profound critical insight and solid learning, was to present a marvelous picture of both the Aztec civilization and the accomplishments of the conquistadors, was the abbot Don Francisco Javier Clavijero.Clavijero was well prepared to write the History: from his youth he had familiarized himself with the languages, customs, and character of the Indians, as well as with nature, which he had found opportunity to study while roaming through the regions governed by his father.He divided it into ten books, and begins by the describing the geography of the Valley of Mexico.He presents a picture of political and military life of the Aztecs and of the other leading tribes of the Valley.
