        Log of the Proceedings of his Majesty’s Ship Fairy from the 25th day of July 1827... (Continued as Log of the Skipjack, at sea, Oct 6, 1827 - Jan. 13, 1828) Kept by Henry James

      The “Fairy” was a 135 ton brig-sloop mounting 8 carronades and 2 6-pounders. She was launched in 1826 at the Chatham dockyard, and was of the same class as Darwin’s “Beagle.” The voyage recorded here took her to the Caribbean and the Bahamas. The “Skipjack” was a schooner built in Bermuda. Both she and the “Fairy” were probably engaged in suppressing the slave trade. These are typical naval logs, with daily entries giving course, wind, weather, shipboard evolutions, and notes. Bound in original marbled paper. Clean and legible.

"First edition, 4to, pp. [4], 27, [1] plus unpaginated lexicon in double column; slightly later green cloth, gilt lettering on spine; some foxing but still a nice copy.

Kennedy 8392, citing one other work by the same author, ""Observations Introductory to a Work on English Etymology,"" London, 1818. Thomson's Etymons sets out ""to trace the descent of English words; their affinity with the different dialects of Gothic spoken in Europe; and the connexion between our own and some other tongues both of Europe and Asia"" (from the Preface).

      London - Henry Colburn, 1826 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A very scarce complete set of Granby anovel by Thomas Lister with half titles to first and third volumes. First edition. In three volumes complete. Thomas Henry Lister (1800 - 1842) was an English novelist and Registrar General. His several novels include Granby (1826), Herbert Lacy (1828), and Arlington (1832). Granby is an early example of the silver fork novel, and was favourably reviewed by Sydney Smith in the Edinburgh Review. He was also the author of a Life of Clarendon. In 1830, he published a story entitled A Dialogue for the Year 2130, which might be described as an early example of science fiction or &#39;futuristic&#39; writing, of the kind later popularised by Jules Verne and H. G. Wells. Published in The Keepsake, a literary annual. In 1836 he was appointed as the first Registrar General for England and Wales, to head the new General Register Office. He was responsible for setting up the system of civil registration of births, deaths and marriages, and organisation of the 1841 UK Census. With unpaginated, undated publisher&#39;s advertisements to rear of volume three. Previous owner&#39;s bookplates to front pastedowns.

        Map of the County of Suffolk, from an actual Survey made A. Bryant, in the Years 1824 and 1825. Inscribed by Permission, to His Grace The Duke of Grafton Lord Lieutenant, and to the Nobility, Clergy, and Gentry, of the County.

      Published By A. Bryant, 27 Gt. Ormond Street, March 1st, 1826, London, - Bryant's large-scale map of Suffolk Large engraved map, dissected and mounted on linen, in two sections, fine original full-wash colour, edged in green silk, housed in original tanned calf pull-off slipcase, gilt. Bryant's large scale map of Suffolk.Between 1822 and 1835 Andrew Bryant surveyed thirteen English counties, much in the manner of the Greenwood brothers, though without the latters' extreme detail. With their swash lettering, vignette views and meticulous engraving there was a great similarity about their respective output. Of the six counties covered by both cartographers, in five instances they were both working in the field at the same time, even with the much talked about animosity between the Greenwoods and Bryant, it is most likely that they shared information. The map, like the Greenwoods', is very detailed, and shows boundaries of the counties, hundreds and parishes, churches and chapels, castles and quarries, farmhouses and gentlemen's seats, heaths and common land, woods, parliamentary representatives, and distances between towns. The map is on a scale of 1 1/2 inches to the mile. The maps by Bryant are appreciably scarcer than those of the Greenwoods.

        Prince Petro Mavro Michaeli. "Prince Petro Mavro Michaeli. Chief of the Maniottes, or old Spartans President of the Executive body of the Greek Government in 1823"

      Philhellenic: London "Drawn from life and Pub.d in London by A Friedal." 1826. Black & white lithograph portrait of Petro MavroMichlaeli from the second edtion of Friedals "Series of Greek Portraits" verso blank. Portrait bust; printed signature in Greek. Petros "Mavromichalis" Pierrakos (Greek: ΠέÏ&#132;Ï&#129;οÏ&#130; Î&#156;αÏ&#133;Ï&#129;ομιÏ&#135;άληÏ&#130;) (1765 â&#128;&#147; 1848), also known as Petrobey, In 814, the Maniots again became a threat to the Ottomans, and the Sultan offered a number of concessions to Pierrakos, including his being named Bey, or Chieftain, of Mani - in effect formalizing the de facto status of autonomy the region had maintained for years.In 1818, he became a member of the Filiki Eteria, On March 17, 1821, Petrobey raised his war flag in Areopolis, effectively signaling the start of the Greek War of Independence. His troops marched into Kalamata, and took the city on March 23. Some light spotting. Adam [de] Friedal, there is much confusion about Friedal&#39;s origins, He is supposed to be a Danish Phihellene and apparently passed himself off as a Baron. St Clair tells us that Friedal carried a lithographic press on his back whilst in Greece where he seems to have been between 1821-24.. He was at Missolonghi for a while with Lord Byron and married the sister of one of Byron&#39;s artificers, John Hodges. Byron wrote a letter introducing Friedal to the notice of the London Greek Commitee. Friedal returned and settled in London and produced his first portrait of Mavrocordato dated September 1824. "The Greeks. Twenty-four Portraits (In Four Parts Of Six Portraits Each,) of the Principal Leaders and Personages Who Have Made Themseves Most Conspicuous in the Greek Revolution.." 1st edition 1824. thereafter there are a number of editions, with differences to the portraits. The portraits in the 1st Edition, probably after Friedal&#39;s original drawings are fairly primitive, with each new edition they became more refined. A second edition of the first 2 parts was issued in 1826. Some of these plates are marked &#39;second edition&#39;, others merely have anew date on the plate surface. In most cases a completely new portrait replaces that of the previous ediion; parts 3 & 4 are unchanged. In 1827 two editions appeared with the imprint "London and Paris, 1827", some on India paper. one in which the portraits had no, or a very simple background, the other with full complex backgrounds. A French edition appeared the same year. In 1828-9 Dean & Munday brought out another series of Friedal plates, some but not all marked &#39;fourth edition&#39;, their most distinguishing feature being that they are full length. They re- issued a number of plates in 1830, marked fifth and sixth edition. There exist wrappers for a &#39;sixth edition &#39;appearing in 1832. [Navari].

Account of the rather contentious expedition to trace the source of the Niger. Relations between Dixon and Clapperton were not of the best they "quarrelled bitterly", with "Denham secretly sending home malicious reports accusing him of having homosexual relations with an Arab servant&#151;reports he had later to admit he had never believed" (ODNB). However, despite failure in their primary aim, the expedition did open up much of north central Africa to European knowledge. Shortly after their return Clapperton resumed the his Niger quest, dying of dysentery at Sokoto in 1827, leaving Denham to be "fêted in London as the hero of the expedition", and to publish the present account in which he suppressed as much as possible all mention of his companions. "Written in a lively style, and embellished with engravings of his own sketches, it became one of the classics of its genre". Howgego, C33; Lowndes I, p.629. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Andrea Miaoulis. "Andrea Miaoulis, Admiral of the Greek Fleet

      Philhellenic: London " Drawn from life & pub.d. in London by Adam Friedal ..now in course of Publication by A. Friedal & sold by commision for A Friedal . 12 Pheonix Row Blackfriars Road & by all the Principal Book & Printsellers in Town & Country." March 1826. Black & white lithograph portrait of Andreas Miaoulis from the second edtion of Friedals "Series of Greek Portraits (2nd part)" verso blank. Printed signature in Greek Andreas Vokos, nicknamed Miaoulis (1768 â&#128;&#147; 1835), was an admiral and politician who commanded Greek naval forces during the Greek War of Independence (1821-1829). Miaoulis, who was of Arvanite origin, was born in Euboea and settled on the island of Hydra east of the Morea and was known among his fellow islanders as a trader in corn who had gained wealth and made a popular use of his money. He had been a merchant captain, and was chosen to lead the naval forces of the islands when they rose against the government of the Sultan. Miaoulis contributed in every way possible to the cause of the resistance against the Turks. He expended the money he had made from his wheat-shipping business during the Napoleonic Wars. Between May 1825 and January 1826,Miaoulis led the Greeks to victory over the Turks in skirmishes off Modon, Cape Matapan, Suda, and Cape Papas. As early as 1822 Miaoulis was appointed navarch, (Greek: Î&#157;άÏ&#133;αÏ&#129;Ï&#135;οÏ&#130;) or admiral, of the swarm of small vessels which formed the insurgent fleet. He commanded the expedition sent to take revenge for the massacre of Chios in the same year. He was victorious at the Battle of Nauplia in September. In 1824, after the conquest of Psara by the Turks, he commanded the Greek forces which prevented the further progress of the Sultan&#39;s fleet, though at the cost of the loss of many fire ships and men. But in the same year he was unable to prevent the Egyptian forces from occupying Navarino, though he harassed them with some success. In 1825 he succeeded in carrying stores and reinforcements into Missolonghi, when it was besieged for the second time, though he could not avert its fall. When independence had been obtained, Miaoulis in his old age was entangled in the civil conflicts of his country, as an opponent of Capodistrias and the Russian Party : he seized some of the principal ships of the Greek fleet at Poros in August 1831, including the Hellas, and destroyed them during the counter-attack of the Russian fleet. He was one of the deputation sent to invite King Otho to accept the crown of Greece, and was made rear-admiral and then vice-admiral by him. Otto also awarded him with the Grand Cross of the Order of the Redeemer. Clean and bright; light spotting. Adam [de] Friedal, there is much confusion about Friedal&#39;s origins, He is supposed to be a Danish Phihellene and apparently passed himself off as a Baron. St Clair tells us that Friedal carried a lithographic press on his back whilst in Greece where he seems to have been between 1821-24.. He was at Missolonghi for a while with Lord Byron and married the sister of one of Byron&#39;s artificers, John Hodges. Byron wrote a letter introducing Friedal to the notice of the London Greek Commitee. Friedal returned and settled in London and produced his first portrait of Mavrocordato dated September 1824. "The Greeks. Twenty-four Portraits (In Four Parts Of Six Portraits Each,) of the Principal Leaders and Personages Who Have Made Themseves Most Conspicuous in the Greek Revolution.." 1st edition 1824. thereafter there are a number of editions, with differences to the portraits. The portraits in the 1st Edition, probably after Friedal&#39;s original drawings are fairly primitive, with each new edition they became more refined. A second edition of the first 2 parts was issued in 1826. Some of these plates are marked &#39;second edition&#39;, others merely have anew date on the plate surface. In most cases a completely new portrait replaces that of the previous ediion; parts 3 & 4 are unchanged. In 1827 two editions appeared with the imprint "London and Paris, 1827", some on India paper. one in which the portraits had no, or a very simple background, the other with full complex backgrounds. A French edition appeared the same year. In 1828-9 Dean & Munday brought out another series of Friedal plates, some but not all marked &#39;fourth edition&#39;, their most distinguishing feature being that they are full length. They re- issued a number of plates in 1830, marked fifth and sixth edition. There exist wrappers for a &#39;sixth edition &#39;appearing in 1832. [Navari].

        Album of Woodblock Prints of Actors

      (circa1850).. A beautiful Japanese colour woodblock concertina album of actors. 28 leaves featuring 16 full page woodblocks, 5 diptychs and 2 leaves with 2 images on each. 18.2 x 12.5cm. Some occasional insect damage and joins at fore edges professionally repaired with wheat starch paste. A very attractive album. All woodblocks except one are by Hirosada which is by Hasegawa Sadanobu. Utagawa Hirosada, or Gosotei Hirosada as he was also known, was an exceptional printmaker active in the period 1826 - 1863 in Osaka. He is believed to have died in 1865. Fans of kabuki eagerly sought his prints which, in some cases, as demonstrated in this album include the names of the actors. On others, due to the restrictions placed on actors by the authorities at the time, the actors remained unnamed. This album features images from the story Hakkenden (The Tale of the Eight Dogs) while others are from Chukoden (Tales of Loyalty and Filial Piety, or Biographies of Respectful Loyal Men). A most desirable album the colours are bright and strong with many striking compositions. Each actor is portrayed in three quarter profile a style which Hirosada was well known for. This album was almost certainly put together by a keen 19th century theatre fan who would have enjoyed the leafing through the images of their favourite stars of the Japanese stage much as any film star fan might do today. .

        Bobolina. "Bobolina, the distinguished Heroine from Spezia"

      Philhellenic: London " In course of Publication in London by A. Friedal & sold by the principal book & printsellers in town & Country." August 1826. Black & white lithograph portrait of Laskarina Bouboulina from the second edtion of Friedals "Series of Greek Portraits (2nd part)" verso blank. The portrait bust, shows a romanticised image of Bouboulina, replacing the previous portrait of the first edition; she is noticeably younger and prettier, wearing a sarik or turban, against a background of trees and a mosque. possibly reflecting her early life in Constantinople. thus the image can be considered a first edition; Friedal would refine it even further in later editions of the work. Bouboulina was born in a prison in Constantinople; she originated from the Arvanite community of the island of Hydra, daughter of Stavrianos Pinotsis, a captain from Hydra island. The Ottomans had imprisoned Pinotsis for his part in the failed Orlof Revolution of 1769â&#128;&#147;1770 against the Ottoman rule. Her father died soon afterward and the mother and child returned to Hydra. They moved to the island of Spetses four years later when her mother married Dimitrios Lazarou-Orlof. She married twice, first Dimitrios Yiannouzas and later the wealthy shipowner and captain Dimitrios Bouboulis, taking his surname. Bouboulis was killed in battle against Algerian pirates in 1811. Now 40 years old, Bouboulina took over his fortune and his trading business and had four more ships built at her own expense, including the large warship Agamemnon. In 1816, the Ottomans tried to confiscate Bouboulina&#39;s property because her second husband had fought for the Russians against the Turks in the Turko-Russian wars. She sailed to Constantinople to meet Russian ambassador Count Pavel Strogonov and seek his protection. In recognition of Bouboulis&#39;s service to the Russians, Strogonov sent her to safety in Crimea. She also met with the mother of Mahmud II, who afterward reportedly convinced her Allegedly Bouboulina joined the Filiki Etaireia, an underground organization that was preparing Greece for revolution against Ottoman rule. She would have been one of few women but she is not named in historical members lists. She bought arms and ammunition at her own expense and brought them secretly to Spetses in her ships, to fight "for the sake of my nation." Construction of the ship Agamemnon was finished in 1820. She bribed Turkish officials to ignore the ship&#39;s size and it was later one of the largest warships in the hands of Greek rebels. She also organized her own armed troops, composed of men from Spetses. She used most of her fortune to provide food and ammunition for the sailors and soldiers under her command. On 13 March 1821 Bouboulina raised on the mast of Agamemnon her own Greek flag, based on the flag of the Comnenus dynasty of Byzantine emperors. The people of Spetses revolted on 3 April and later joined forces with ships from other Greek islands. Bouboulina sailed with eight ships to Nafplion and began a naval blockade. Later she took part in the naval blockade and capture of Monemvasia and Pylos. She arrived at Tripolis in time to witness its fall on 11 September 1821 and to meet general Theodoros Kolokotronis.During the ensuing defeat of the Ottoman garrison, Bouboulina saved most of the female members of the sultan&#39;s household. In 1823 Emperor Alexander I of Russia granted Bouboulina the rank of Admiral of the Russian Navy Clean and bright; light spotting.

        Johannis Collettis. "Johannis Collettis, Minister of the Interior & Member of the Executive Body in Greece"

      Philhellenic: London " In course of Publication in London by A. Friedal & sold by the principal book & printsellers in town & Country." August 1826. Black & white lithograph portrait of Johannes Kollettis from the second edtion of Friedals "Series of Greek Portraits (2nd part)" verso blank. The portrait bust, shows Collettis in fur trimmed coat; printed signature in Greek. Ioannis Kolettis (Greek: Î&#153;Ï&#137;άννηÏ&#130; Î&#154;Ï&#137;λέÏ&#132;Ï&#132;ηÏ&#130;) (1773 - 1847) was a Greek politician who played a significant role in Greek affairs from the Greek War of Independence through the early years of the Greek Kingdom. Kolettis was born in Syrrako, Epirus and played a leading role in the political life of the Greek state in the 1830s and 1840s. Kolettis was of Vlach origin and studied medicine in Pisa, Italy and was influenced by the Carbonari movement and started planning his return to Epirus in order to participate in Greece&#39;s independence struggles. In 1813, he settled at Ioannina, where he served as a doctor and after gaining standing he was recruited as the personal doctor of Ali Pacha&#39;s son, Muqtar Pacha. He remained in Ioannina till March 1821, when he entered Filiki Eteria and left for Syrrako, together with chieftain Raggos, in order to spread the revolution into Central Greece but his efforts quickly failed because of the rapid reaction of the Ottoman army. Kolettis was the leader of the pro-French party and based his power on his relations with the leaders of Central Greece but also on his ability to eliminate his adversaries by acting behind the scenes. He was Prime Minister of Greece in 1834-5 & again in 1844-7. Clean and bright; light spotting.

        Atlante storico, geografico, genealogico, cronologico e letterario del Sig. Le Sage. Corretto, ampliato e proseguito sino all'anno corrente. Prima Veneta Edizione - Mappe geografiche storiche concernenti l'epoche più celebri e le maggiori nazioni del mondo sino alla odierna pace europea (1815).

      Girolamo Tasso, 1826 - 1840, Venezia, - 2 voll. in-folio (405x275mm), pp. (4), 183 di testo; 223, (1); legatura coeva m. pelle verde con titolo in oro e fregi in oro e a secco ai dorsi. Piatti marmorizzati. Tagli spruzzati. Impresa calcografica al titolo con olifante alato e motto entro cartiglio: "Col senno e con la mano". Testo su quadruplice colonna inquadrato da duplice filetto; le colonne sono campite in vari colori, rosa, giallo, verdino, azzurrino, al fine di differenziare i vari prospetti. Il secondo volume è costituito dalle Mappe geografiche storiche concernenti l'epoche più celebri e le maggiori nazioni del mondo sino alla odierna pace europea (1815). Ventidue di queste mappe già pubblicate in Francia ed in Toscana, qual lavoro di A. Le Sage (Las Casas), nel suo Atlante Storico, Genealogico, Geografico, Politico, ebbero ora notevoli giunte di memorie topografiche, dopo essere state tradotte, emendate ed a miglior lezione ridotte; inoltre nella edizione presente si comprendono altre ventiquattro mappe correlative, delineate ed arricchite con illustrazioni storiche, civili, cancelleresche e marziali da Gimbatista Albrizzi cittadino veneto. Il volume comprende 38 tavole a pagina intera o su doppio foglio incise su rame con bellissima coloritura, comprendenti l'intero globo terracqueo, tra cui due mappamondi generali e numerose tavole relative all'America. Il frontespizio dichiara 24 tavole, ma, in realtà, esse sono 42, ripartite in 38 tavole. Esemplare assai bello (alcuni restauri ai dorsi), non agevole a reperire completo di tutte le tavole. Al contropiatto posteriore del primo vol. è stato applicato un foglio volante ottocentesco impresso da Speirani e Ferrero di Torino: "Profezia tale quale è stata trovata nelle carta di un Pio Eremita morto nella Svizzera a S. Galleu nell'anno 1760" (le profezie vanno dal 1760 sino al 1999, anno, secondo il profeta eremita, della fine del mondo; a titolo di curiosità egli profetizzava per il 1915 "carestie, fame, stragi; la mortalità sarà considerevole a segno che non vi resterà che un picciol numero dei viventi, quando due s'incontreranno si abbraccieranno [sic] di gioja"). Prima edizione veneta ("compendiata in parte sopra epitomi oltramontani, ed in più di due terzi compilazione originale, critica, poligrafica di Giambatista Albrizzi", dice il frontespizio della seconda opera) del bellissimo atlante del Le Sage, pseudonimo di Emmanuel Augustin Dieudonné Marin Joseph de Las Cases, meglio conosciuto in quanto autore del celeberrimo "Memoriale di Sant'Elena". L'opera offre una prospettiva originale, coordinando i dati della storia, della geografia, della genealogia e della cronologia secondo un approccio in parte nuovo negli atlanti del tempo, servendo da modello all'"Atlas des deux Amériques" di Jarry De Mancy e di La Richérie e ancora ad altre compilazioni. Alcuni biografi di Las Cases sostengono che l'atlante fosse in realtà opera di un prete francese rifugiato in Inghilterra di cui Las Cases avrebbe acquistato l'opera. Las Cases (Revel, Haute-Garonne, 1766-Passy-sur-Seyne, 1842), originario di una nobile famiglia spagnola, ufficiale di marina giunto al grado di tenente di vascello, subito attratto dal nascente astro napoleonico, fu da Bonaparte creato barone, conte dell'impero e ciambellano tra il 1809 e il 1810. Rimasto fedele all'imperatore anche dopo la sua prima abdicazione, tornò al suo fianco, dopo i Cento Giorni, successivamente ad un breve esilio londinese e, dopo la disfatta di Waterloo, lo seguì a Sant'Elena dove trascrisse con zelo ma talora con notevoli libertà i colloqui avuti con lui. Espulso dall'isola nel novembre 1816 per ordine del governatore Hudson Lowe, esule in Germania e in Belgio, poté rientrare in Francia solo dopo la morte di Napoleone, osteggiando come deputato i Borboni prima e Luigi Filippo poi, restando bonapartista sino alla fine dei suoi giorni.
