        Paradise Lost

      London: Septimus Prowett,, 1827. 2 volumes, large quarto (363 x 265 mm). Contemporary dark green morocco, raised bands, titles to spine and floral rolls to spine ends gilt, boards with double ruling in gilt and triple ruling in blind, decorative gilt rolls to edges and turn-ins, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. With 24 mezzotint plates by John Martin, 23 retaining the tissue guards. Spines slightly sunned, extremities gently rubbed, minor wear to corners, boards a touch scuffed and soiled, light foxing to margins of text block and plates. An excellent set. First edition, with the large plates by John Martin (1789-1854), the British Romantic artist. While famous for his striking apocalyptic oil paintings, Martin also illustrated books, working mainly in the technically demanding medium mezzotint, which, with its velvety darkness and rich tonal qualities, allowed the artist to emulate painterly effects. In 1823, Prowett commissioned 24 large plates (280 x 190 mm) by Martin for a new edition of Paradise Lost; the publisher would later commission an additional set of smaller plates (200 x 150 mm). As a result, the 1827 Paradise Lost appeared in four distinct formats: folio or quarto with the large plates, and quarto or octavo with the smaller plates. Milton Ray describes Martin's edition of Paradise Lost as "one of the great publishing enterprises of the age ... The apocalyptic romanticism of his conceptions had many sources: the monumental buildings of London, the engravings of Piranesi, the many recently published volumes of eastern views, even incandescent gas, coalpit accidents, and Brunel's new Thames Tunnel. The resulting illustrations may be heterogeneous, but they are also unforgettable." (The Illustrator and the Book in England, p. 69). This copy from the library of British diplomat David Montagu Erskine (1776-1855), with his bookplate to front pastedowns and his ownership signature in pencil to Volume I front flyleaf. Erskine served as the British envoy to Washington (1806-9), Stuttgart (1824-8), and Munich (1828-43).

        Vicissitudes in the Life of a Scottish Soldier

      London: Henry Colburn, New Burlington Street printed by J. Moyes, Took's Court, Chancery Lane, 1827. 1st. Hard Cover. Very Good. QUITE RARE LINE SOLDIER NARRATIVE WITH THIS TITLExiii,[1]-344p. 4-1/4 x 7-1/4 inches. Rebound in blue cloth with gilt type on spine, thick new plain end papers and occasional very light soiling, otherwise very good condition.Quite rare to the market with this title. Less than a handful of copies in UK institutions with this title. Excellent account of the Peninsular War written by a soldier of the 71st. Attributed to J. Donaldson (Ms note on title-page of Durham University copy) and Joseph Donaldson indicated as author by the British Library)DONALDSON, JOSEPH (1794-1830), author of 'Recollections of the Eventful Life of a Soldier,' was born in 1794 in Glasgow, where his father was in the employ of a mercantile house. With some school companions he ran away to sea and made a voyage to the West Indies, which disenchanted him of a sea-life, and he returned home and was again put to school by his father. Early in 1809 he again ran away, and without communicating with his friends enlisted in the old 94th (Scotch brigade). Joining his regiment, he accompanied it to Jersey, and afterwards to Spain, where it took part in the desperate defence of Fort Matagorda during the siege of Cadiz, and afterwards was with Picton's division in the principal battles and sieges in the Peninsula from 1811 to 1814. After the peace in 1814 the Scotch brigade was stationed in Ireland, where it was disbanded in 1818. In the meantime Donaldson married a young Irish girl, alluded to in some of his writings under the name of Mary MacCarthy, who subsequently bore him ten children. Early in 1815 he was discharged as sergeant, at the age of twenty-one, at the expiration of his limited-service engagement. Returning to Glasgow with his wife, he made a little money by the publication of his 'Scenes and Sketches in Ireland.' His hopes of obtaining employment in civil life having utterly failed, Donaldson went to London with his family, enlisted in the East India Company's service, and was employed as a recruiting-sergeant, at first in London and afterwards in Glasgow. This duty being very distasteful to him, he got himself transferred to the district staff, and was employed as head clerk in the Glasgow district staff office for some years, during which time he published his 'Recollections of the Eventful Life of a Soldier' and 'Story of the War in the Peninsula.' While in London he had found time to study anatomy and surgery, studies which he continued at Glasgow University. Having qualified as a surgeon, he took his discharge in 1827, and set up in medical practice at Oban in Argyleshire, where he remained until 1829. Failing of success, he left his wife and children in Glasgow, and, in the hope of improving his medical prospects, proceeded to London and afterwards to Paris, where he died of pulmonary disease in October 1830, at the age of thirty-six. Donaldson is stated to have been a frequent contributor of anonymous papers to the press. His three works above named, which give a vivid picture of soldier life in the Peninsula and in Ireland in his day, were republished in 1855 under the collective title of 'Recollections of the Eventful Life of a Soldier' (London and Glasgow, 8vo), for the benefit of his widow and a surviving daughter, then in distressed circumstances in Glasgow.[Preface to Donaldson's Recollections, 1855.].

Peyronnet, année 1826: xiii, [iii], 184p., [1p. Errata]; Portalis, année 1827: xvii, [iii], 235p., [1p. Errata], avec la lettre de transmission imprimée du Compte général au Procureur du Roi, de la part de Portalis, datée 18 juillet 1828; Courvoisier, année 1828: xxi, [iii], 277p., [1p. Errata]; Dupont, année 1829: xxviii, [iv], 281p.; Barthe, année 1830: xxvi, [ii], 246p. Reliure d'époque en demi-basane basane fauve, dos lisse avec pièces de titre en cuir de Russie. Accrocs à la coiffe supérieure, extrémités frottées, quelques rousseurs dans les volumes de 1827 à 1830, les deux premiers volumes sont très frais. Ensemble des six premiers rapports annuels ou "Compte généraux" de la justice criminelle, publiés à partir de 1827 et qui concernent les années 1825 à 1830. Ils prennent la forme de très nombreux tableaux statistiques concernant les activités des cours d'assises, les jugements des tribunaux correctionnels et ceux de simple police. Les statistiques concernent le type de délit ou crime, le profil des accusés et leur condamnations, la distribution des méfaits par ville ou département. Les publications visent à améliorer la performance des lois, à justifier le budget consacré à la justice, et à déterminer les circonstances qui influent sur le nombre et nature des crimes. Parmi les accusations pour meurtre et assassinat, on constate que la Corse se place loin devant les autres départements en 1825, avec un quart du total pour l'ensemble du pays. Nombre de condamnations conduisent aux travaux forcés à temps ou perpétuels. Parmi les crimes et délits: crimes contre les personnes et les propriétés, rébellion, incendie, faux-témoignages, empoisonnements, parricide, avortement, bigamie, fausse monnaie, vols dans les églises? Le niveau d'éducation ainsi que le statut social et la profession sont mentionnés dans les statistiques. Rare réunion de ces six années qui peignent un tableau global de la justice criminelle en France sous le règne de Charles X. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Handschriftliches Notiz- und Wirtschaftsbuch in deutscher Schrift in Tinte und Bleistift.

      1827 bis 1834.. 79 nicht paginierte Blatt. Pappband der Zeit mit Bindebändern, 17 x 10,5 cm.. (stärker berieben und bestoßen, innen vereinzelt fleckig oder tintenfleckig) Vorn in das Notizbuch eingeklebt ist ein Blatt, das landwirtschaftliche Erträge des Jahres 1834 für die "Herrschaft Kostenblatt: um Krzemusch" ausweist. Dabei handelt es sich um die heutigen Ortschaften Kostomlaty pod Milesovkou und Kremyz im Norden von Tschechien auf halbem Wege zwischen Prag und Dresden. Aufgeführt werden auch die Erträge auf den Schüttboden von Brzkowitz, Welhentz (Welhenice), und Wohontsch (Ohnic). Diese Ländereien gehörten Anfang des 19. Jahrhunderts August Freiherrn von Ledebur-Wicheln, der eine böhmische Linie der Ledeburs begründete und sich in Ohnic ein Jagdschloss im Empirestil bauen lies. Hinter diesem Blatt findet sich ein eingeklebter Zeitungsausschnitt, wahrscheinlich aus dem Jahr 1830, der Graf Ledebour als Unterstützer der Gewerbeausstellung erwähnt. Die oben genannten Ortschaften tauchen in vorliegendem Notizbuch an verschiedenen Stellen auf und der Schreiber erklärt das Einkommen aus diesen Gütern als sein eigenes und spricht von diesem Vermögen in der ersten Person. Obwohl der Name (soweit wit sehen konnten) nicht in dem Buch auftaucht, handelt es sich höchstwahrscheinlich um das private Notiz- und Wirtschaftsbuch des Freiherrn von Ledebur für den Zeitraum von 1827 bis 1834. Die Schrift ist meist sehr klein, nicht sehr ordentlich und schwer zu entziffern. Das Büchlein umfasst 79 Blätter, eines ist herausgeschnitten, Blatt 55 bis 60 sind leer, bei den Jahreszahlen ist immer die erste Ziffer weggelassen. Zu lesen sind Eintragungen zu Einnahmen und Ausgaben, Haushaltsführung "Prager Haus Auslagen", darunter auch "Conservatorium" (3 recto), viele Additionen und Subtraktionen bedeutender Summen, "Vermögen meiner Kinder: Fredine, Eleonor, Adolph". Auf einer Seite mit der Überschrift "Schulden" (8 r) taucht der Name Bolzano auf (evt. handelt es sich um den Mathematiker Bernhard Bolzano (1781-1848). Ob Ledebur Bolzano während der Zeit der Verfolgung durch die habsburgischen Behörden unterstützt hat?). "Perutz" (14 verso) wird erwähnt, ein anderer Sitz der Ledeburs in Böhmen. Reisen mir Entfernungsangaben in Meilen (40 r), Erwägungen über den Kauf von Tischwäsche "In Paderborn kostet..." (39 v), in Marienbad "Der Fürstin ... Schonberg habe ich 50 Louis d'or geliehen" (45 r) und Namen: General Gerstenschweig, Oberst Kozebue, Fürst Hohenlohe, Kleist... Ab Blatt 64 Erinnerungen, Reisenotizen "Reisen nach Westphalen 802" und zu guter letzt die Aufzählung vorhandener Wäsche (70 v). Hinten im Buch ist noch der Sitzplan des Königl. Landständ. Theaters in Prag eingeklebt und die vorgedruckte und handschriftlich ausgefüllte "Recepisse" "Von dem K.K. Postwagenamt" aus dem Jahr 1829, der Beleg für die Befördung für ein von uns nicht zu identifizierendes Poststück. - AMS. Weitere Bilder auf Anfrage oder auf unserer Homepage.

        VIAGGIO PITTORICO DELLA TOSCANA.

      per Vincenzo Batelli e Comp. 1827 3^ edizione. Opera completa in sei volumi. Cm.14,9x9. Pg.1928 complessive. Sobrie legature in mz.pelle, con piatti marmorizzati. Tasselli con titoli e fregi in oro ai dorsi. All'antiporta del primo volume ritratto dell'Autore inciso in ovale da E.Fournier. Intercalate nei volumi 217 nitide vedute toscane. Oltre alle tavole collazionate negli Indici, tutte presenti, sono presenti sei ulteriori tavole: Veduta della Porta alla Croce di Firenze, Veduta della Porta al Prato di Firenze, Veduta del Gran Viale del I. e R.Giardino di Boboli, Veduta della Piazza di S.Marco, Facciata del Palazzo del Principe Borghese (al primo volume) e Veduta della Ghiacciaja delle Cascine (al secondo volume). Cinque le tavole a doppia pagina: Carta corografica della Toscana e Pianta di Firenze (al primo volume), Pianta della Città di Pisa e Pianta della Città e Porto di Livorno (al terzo volume), Pianta della Città di Siena (al quinto volume). Celebre opera, qui in terza edizione, che costituisce uno straordinario affresco iconografico dell'intera Toscana. L'abate Francesco Fontani (Firenze, 1748 - 1818), dotto erudito, dopo gli studi compiuti nel seminario del Collegio Eugeniano si trasferì a Roma ove insegnò eloquenza nel Collegio Bandinelli. Si dedicò agli studi artistici e archeologici e, rientrato a Firenze, divenne Bibliotecario alla Riccardiana, occupandosi anche della Accademia della Crusca. Fu parroco nella chiesa di Santa Lucia dei Magnoli. Oltre alla presente monumentale opera, si devono a lui il "Florilegium ex Grecis Scriptoribus" (Roma, 1778), le "Novae Eruditorum deliciae" in tre volumi (Firenze, 1785 - 1793) in confutazione delle "Deliciae" del Lami, "I riti nuziali dei Greci" (1789), la "Lettera al Sig.Proposto Lastri" (1789), le "Pitture dei vasi antichi posseduti da S.E. il Sig.Cav. Hamilton" in quattro volumi (Firenze, 1800 - 1803), il "Viaggio nel Basso e Alto Egitto illustrato dietro alle tracce e ai disegni del Sig.Denon" in due volumi (Firenze, 1808), la "Dissertazione sui riti religiosi e politici dei greci nel puerperio", etc. "Il viaggio pittorico della Toscana" costuisce tuttavia la sua opera più rinomata. Riproducendo fedelmente le tavole incise dai fratelli Terreni durante il loro viaggio del 1801, fu pubblicata la prima volta tra il 1801 e il 1803 per i tipi del Tofani a Firenze e in seguito dal Marenigh nel 1817 - 1818 e nel 1822.

        Reduta Heterophylla

      Paris: 1827-1833 - Pierre Joseph Redoute (1759-1840) From Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs Paris: 1827-1833 Hand-colored stipple engravings 12 3/4” x 9 1/2” Very minor discoloration near bottom middle. The works of the great botanical artist Pierre-Joseph Redoute (1759-1840) seem to demand the invention of lofty praise. Described both as the “Rembrandt” and the “Raphael” of Flowers by nineteenth century writers, Redoute occupies a central position in the development of European botanical art. Born into a family of artists, Redoute's talents were recognized and encouraged from an early age. He studied botany with the noted naturalist Heritier de Brutelle, and learned the technique of painting in watercolor on vellum from Gerard van Spaendonck, Flower Painter to the King. By this master painter's own account, his pupil's work was finer. Redoute had, as pupils or patrons, five queens and empresses of France, from Marie Antoinette to Empress Josephine and her successor, Marie-Louise. Despite many changes of regime in this turbulent epoch, he worked without interruption, eventually contributing to over fifty books on natural history and archeology. The luminosity of stipple engraving is particularly suited to the reproduction of botanical detail. It is essentially a technique of etching a copper plate with a dense grid of dots that can be modulated to convey delicate gradations of color and tone. The plates were painted with watercolor before each impression, creating a rich and subtle color quality that is deeply pressed into the paper. The most delicate highlights and details are then added by hand to finish each print according to the exquisite watercolor models that Redoute provided. This complex and delicate printing process combines the technical virtuosity and aesthetic sensitivity that characterize Redoute's remarkable body of work. The Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs is one of Redoute's last, and most personal works. It is a selection of favorite flowers and fruits by a master who had devoted a lifetime to the art of botanical illustration. The images include spectacular blossoms plucked from formal gardens, as well as the more modest blooms of wayside flowers. These small and richly colored plates convey an intimate sense of beauty that sets them apart from other botanical works.

Some edgewear, light rubbing to wraps, moderate wear to spine, binding lightly cocked. Light browning to near top-edges of a few leaves at beginning of text, interior otherwise fresh. * This is a Spanish translation of Bordigne's Examen de la Constitution de Don Pedre, et des Droits de Don Miguel (1827). Also published as part one of his Legitimite Portugaise (1827), it examines the Portuguese succession in 1826-27. This was a case that raised several questions of legitimacy, constitutionality and nationality. In 1807 Napoleon compelled the Portuguese monarchy to flee to its colony of Brazil, which then became, by decree, the capital of the United Kingdom of Portugal, Brazil, and the Algarve. In 1816 Joao VI returned to Portugal and demoted Brazil to colonial status. His eldest son, Pedro I, remain in Brazil, sided with its independence movement and declared himself emperor when independence was achieved. Pedro ruled Brazil until 1831, then abdicated to return to Portugal to help his daughter achieve the throne. Pedro I of Brazil became King of Portugal as Pedro IV (1826). Since no one wanted to re-establish the union of Portugal and Brazil Pedro abdicated the Portuguese throne in favor of his daughter Maria II da Gloria, then seven years old. Pedro's brother Miguel was to act as Regent and marry Maria when she came of age. Miguel instead proclaimed himself king and repudiated the liberal constitution granted by Joao VI. Maria was forced into exile. Her father Pedro returned from Brazil, and from the Azores waged a successful campaign against Miguel, who was defeated and exiled in 1834. This Spanish edition is not in the British Museum Catalogue, which lists editions in French and Portuguese.

Contemporary reviews were somewhat wary of some of Francklin's wilder forays into comparative religion, but the reviewer in The Asiatic Journal and Monthly Miscellany did concede that "he has the unquestionable merit of patient, we might even say enthusiastic research; and he has been so far successful, that many interesting descriptions of the cavern and rock temples, the colossal figures and sacred mountains of the Hindoos, are to be found in his book.

        The Red Rover. A Tale

      3 volumes. ix+336 pages; 309 pages; 341 pages. Small octavo (7 1/2" x 4 3/4") bound in full leather with black labels in gilt lettering to spine and blindstamped coat of arms to covers with gilt edge rule. Marbled page ends. (BAL 3838) First English edition. James Fenimore Cooper was born on September 15, 1789 in Burlington, New Jersey, the eleventh of twelve children. When he was one year old, he moved with parents William and Elizabeth to Cooperstown on Ostego Lake in central New York. During Cooper's boyhood, there were few backwoods settlers left and even fewer Indians. However, Cooper's early experiences in this frontier town gave him the background knowledge used in the Pioneers (1923). After boarding school in Albany, Cooper attended Yale College from 1803 - 1805 but was expelled. Apparently his expulsion stemmed from a dangerous prank that involved him blowing up another student's door. There Cooper acquired his lifelong distaste for New Englanders. In 1806, he became a sailor and then a midshipman in the Navy. At twenty, he inherited a fortune from his father and married Susan Augusta De Lancey, the daughter of a wealthy family that had remained Loyalist during the Revolution. Cooper married De Lancey New Years Day, 1811 and for two years he led the life of a country gentleman. When all five of his older brothers died, leaving widows and children behind, Fenimore began searching for work and wealth. In 1820, Cooper's wife bet him that he could write a book better than the one she was reading. What followed was Precaution (1820) a novel of morals and manners that showed the influence of Jane Austen. With a pleasant enough reception, he published The Spy: A Tale of Neutral Ground (1821) the first historical romance about the American Revolution. Then, on its success, Fenimore moved to New York City to pursue writing as a career. While in New York, he founded the Bread and Cheese Club and became the center of a circle that included notable painters of the Hudson River School as well as writers like William Cullen Bryant. In 1823, Cooper published The Pioneers which eventually consisted of five books about Natty Bumppo called The Leatherstocking Tales. With this, he created what can be critically viewed as the first American novel and hero. He also brought up the thematic complexities of natural right versus legal right, order versus change, and wilderness versus civilization which still fill the pages of American writing today. In 1826, at the height of his popularity, he sailed for Europe for what became a seven year stay. He wrote The Prairie (1827) and Notions of the Americans (1828) a defense of the United States against the attacks of European travelers. Under the half-patronizing epithet of "the American Scott" he wrote three historical novels that mimicked the writing of Sir Walter Scott. Returning to the US in 1833, Cooper was so hurt by a review that he penned A Letter to his Countrymen (1834) which was a bitter attack on American provincialism. He also became involved in disputes in Cooperstown where he was attacked by newspapers as a false aristocrat poisoned by European influences. In response, Cooper immersed himself in law suits aimed at gaining damages that would tame the irresponsibility of the press. Cooper established the principle that reviewers must work within the bounds of truth when they deal with an author rather than the book. Even with this scandal at his heels, Cooper continued to write a school primer, The American Democrat (1838) and three more Leatherstocking Tales: The Last of the Mohicans (1826), The Pathfinder (1840), and The Deerslayer (1841). Then came Cooper's obsession with the sea from his previous experience in the Navy. He penned The History of the Navy of the United States of America (1839), The Cruise of Sommers (1844), and The Distinguished American Naval Officers (1846). At the time of his death on September 14, 1851, Cooper was more successful and respected abroad than at home. Out of step with his countrymen, his work was very influential to European writers like Honore de Balzac and Leo Tolstoy. Yet, the weaknesses of Fenimore's fiction are quite well known and wide-spread. Mark Twain tore apart Fenimore's romanticism in Fenimore Coopers Literary Offenses (1895). Clearly, Fenimore's tone was criticized as being reactionary, romantic, and pedagogical in tone. However, Cooper did contribute a great deal to the genre of American fiction. In the grand enterprise, even today, everyone has read books and seen films that are directly and indirectly affected by Cooper's conception of Natty Bumppo and his creation of the American novel.Condition: Some signatures sprung, rubbing to extremities, corners bumped, some scuffing, book plates to front pastedowns.

        Le Peche (peach)

      Paris 1827 - Pierre Joseph Redoute (1759-1840) Illustrated sheet from Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs Paris: 1827-1833 Hand-colored stipple engraving Sheet size: 12 1/2" x 9 3/4" The works of the great botanical artist Pierre-Joseph Redoute (1759-1840) seem to demand the invention of lofty praise. Described both as the “Rembrandt” and the “Raphael” of Flowers by nineteenth century writers, Redoute occupies a central position in the development of European botanical art. Born into a family of artists, Redoute’s talents were recognized and encouraged from an early age. He studied botany with the noted naturalist Heritier de Brutelle, and learned the technique of painting in watercolor on vellum from Gerard van Spaendonck, Flower Painter to the King. By this master painter’s own account, his pupil’s work was finer. Redoute had, as pupils or patrons, five queens and empresses of France, from Marie Antoinette to Empress Josephine and her successor, Marie-Louise. Despite many changes of regime in this turbulent epoch, he worked without interruption, eventually contributing to over fifty books on natural history and archeology. The luminosity of stipple engraving is particularly suited to the reproduction of botanical detail. It is essentially a technique of etching a copper plate with a dense grid of dots that can be modulateto convey delicate gradations of color and tone. The plates were painted with watercolor before each impression, creating a rich and subtle color quality that is deeply pressed into the paper. The most delicate highlights and details are then added by hand to finish each print according to the exquisite watercolor models that Redoute provided. This complex and delicate printing process combines the technical virtuosity and aesthetic sensitivity that characterize Redoute’s remarkable body of work.

      Paris: Dondey-Dupré père et fils, 1827. Two octavo volumes bound in one, and a quarto atlas with lithographic title page, large folding map, two folding plans and eight lithographic plates; occasional scattered foxing, a very good set in matching later quarter crimson morocco. A Russian envoy to China. First French edition, recounting the experiences of a Russian envoy to China in the years 1820-1821. Significantly, the atlas volume includes a large plan of the Forbidden City, the first to be published in a Western book.The author, Russian diplomat Egor Fedorovich Timkovski accompanied the Russian Orthodox mission to Peking departing Kyakhta in August 1820. Russia had maintained a presence in Peking since 1728. As the embassy contained a church and school, it formed a centre of cultural exchange, language instruction and diplomatic activity between two great empires. The staff of the embassy were refreshed each decade, providing the need for ongoing missions from Russia to the Imperial Court.Timkovski's account was considered one of the most important China books of its era, on account of the information he obtained from the long serving Orthodox priests at the Peking embassy. With years of cultural exposure and formidable linguistic competence, the priests provided Timkovski with rich descriptions of Mongol customs and religious life, and enough additional information to expand the scope of his book to Eastern Turkestan, Tibet and Korea. Immediately popular, it was translated and published in German, Dutch, French, English and Polish editions by 1828.Eight lithographic plates of customs and costumes provide an unusually serene and intimate insight into everyday life, depicting a mounted nomad, musicians, gamblers, a Manchu couple in formal dress and a remarkable grouping of four hunters dressed in furs. The large folding map accurately charts the route of the embassy to Peking through Mongolia, providing a novel and accurate geographical record of the vast Gobi desert.Timkovski's narrative was edited for publication by accomplished orientalist and explorer Heinrich Klaproth, who had previously travelled through Mongolia in 1805-1807 as part of an unsuccessful Russian embassy to the Imperial Court. Klaproth contributes a statistical overview to the atlas, detailing the wealth, agricultural output, and population of each of the Chinese provinces. Interestingly, he totals some 142,326,734 souls for the entire nation.
