      34 - Merthyr Tydfil - H. W. White, 1827 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A rebound religious, Psalm book, with marble, paper covered boards. Iolo Morganwg (or Morgannwg in modern spelling) was the bardic name of Edward Williams (Llancarfan, Glamorgan, Wales 1747-1826), an influential antiquarian, poet, collector and literary forger. The name is Welsh for Ned of Glamorgan. Edward Williams spent his working life as a stonemason. It is as Iolo Morganwg that he is remembered, chiefly for his role in (re)creating modern bardic ritual and philosophy. His bardic teacher was Sin Bradford of Tir Iarll. Iolo first came to public notice by revealing some previously undiscovered poetry by Dafydd ap Gwilym, generally considered to be the greatest Welsh poet, in 1789. These poems were in fact forgeries, but survived critical attention for over hundred years. His success lead Iolo to move to London. Become a significant figure in the Welsh community there he held the first Gorsedd, Gorsedd Beirdd Ynys Prydain, at a ceremony in 1792 at Primrose Hill, London. He went on to author fairly substantial works (most of which are now considered forgeries) claiming that the ancient druidic tradition had survived intact in Wales, despite the Roman conquest, Christianity, the persecution of the bards under King Edward I, and other adversities. Iolo's philosophy represented a fusion of Christian and Arthurian influences, a proto-romanticism comparable to that of William Blake and the Scottish poet and forger James MacPherson, the revived antiquarian enthusiasm for all things Celtic, and such elements of bardic heritage as had genuinely survived among Welsh-language poets. Part of his aim was to assert the Welshness of the South, particularly his home region of Glamorgan, against the prevalent idea that North Wales represented the purest survival of Welsh traditions. Iolo was the author of the Druid's Prayer or Gorsedd prayer (Gweddi'r Derwydd or Gweddi'r Orsedd in Welsh), which is still a staple of the ritual of both gorseddau and Neo-Druidism. His metaphysics outlined a theory of concentric 'rings of existence', proceeding outward from Annwn (the Otherworld) through Abred and Ceugant to Gwynfyd (purity or Heaven). Among his writings was Cyfrinach Beirdd Ynys Prydain, or The Mystery of the Bards of the Isle of Britain (1829), a treatise on Welsh metrics. He also forged an extra set of Welsh Triads. Condition: The book has been rebound and consequently the binding is very tight and firm with both covers and all surviving, internal pages attached. There is no visible wear to the extremities. Internally there are new pastedowns and blank-end papers. The title page in addition to the first few pages of the first volume, and page 243 of the second volume, are missing. The first original page is page xix, with pages x to xii following. These pages, in addition to pages 244 to 248 of the second volume,have been repaired with archive paper as the original corners are missing. The majority of the texts on these pages are still intact. The remainingpages from page one of the first volume to page 248 of the second volume are all present. There are handling marks, brown age spots and stains throughout the book, although these do not generally affect the visibility of the text. A fe of the top outer corners of the book are creased There is a very faint number written in ink on the first two pages of the first volume..

        Archive of 21 autograph letters

      1827?"47. 21 autograph letters (20 signed) to various person by Mary Shelley: one of which also bearing 2-page letter by Leigh Hunt, two of which signed letters lacking first half, two of which signed fragments, one of which lacking the signed second half, six of which in Italian. Varying papers and page-lengths, 9 folded as envelopes comprising addresses (8 with wax seal). All housed in individual varicoloured card folders. Generally very good condition, excepting one fragment torn and taped back together. A superb collection of Mary Shelley autograph letters, from the collection of Mary Shelley specialist Professor Jean de Palacio at the University of Lille. The letters date from 15 April 1827 to the winter of 1847, and include two highly important letters to Edward Trelawny (one of which also bears a 2-page letter from Leigh Hunt, the other constituting one of Mary Shelley's most honest expressions of her feelings about her stepsister Claire Clairmont), one remarkable letter to Claire Clairmont enclosing a clipped signature of Percy Bysshe Shelley (the signature still present), as well as a sequence of six letters in Italian to Tuscan liberal politician and railway financier Bartolomeo Cini (1809?"1877). Further, there are twelve letters to different recipients including three of significant literary interest (one to influential Scottish publisher Alexander Blackwood; another to novelist and editor of The Keepsake Frederic Mansel Reynolds; the third denouncing Stendhal's Promenades dans Rome to Scottish editor and publisher of the Foreign Quarterly Review John George Cochrane), and nine of biographical interest. i) With Leigh Hunt to Edward Trelawny, Harrow, Easter Sunday [15 Apr.] 1827 In this marvellous double letter, Mary writes lengthily over two large pages, Leigh Hunt for two, and then Mary adds, upside down between the lines of Hunt's first page, another page of her own. The letter is addressed "to the care of M. Sam Barff [1793?"1880, friend of Byron and important supporter of Greek Independence], Zante?"The Ionian Isles." Trelawny was at this time something of a celebrity back at home in England, after his unfortunate but dramatic involvement in the Greek War of Independence supporting the renegade warlord Odysseas. Having been deported from Greece, he was living on the Isle of Zante for a year since May 1826, but would, shortly after he received this letter from Shelley and Hunt (a postal stamp reading "Corfu, 26 Maggio, 1827" is visible), divorce his wife Teritza (Odysseas's half-sister) and return to England, in order to pursue his relationship with Mary Shelley (which almost turned into marriage) and the other surviving Romantics, and to begin writing his memoirs and controversial biographical reminiscences of Byron and Shelley. Mary's letter catches Trelawny up on the lives of his old acquaintances, mentioning the courtship of Jane Williams (wife of Edward, who drowned with Shelley) and Shelley's Oxford comrade-in-expulsion T. J. Hogg, as well as mentioning Shelley himself, his younger brother John, Edward Williams, Claire Clairmont ("still in Russia") and Thomas Medwin, also expressing great personal emotion, verging on romantic desperation, towards Trelawny at the prospect of his return to England ("I am dead to all other hope?"if you returned?"yet you would not make one of us?"you will leave us quickly again?"yet it will be great happiness to have you again with me, tho' for a short time?"will you not come?"). Hunt's letter is characteristically light hearted and witty, mentioning his own memoirs and his ill health and penury. Mary's postscript sympathizes: "Poor darling Hunt?"my heart bleeds for him ... he deserves all possible good?"but this [is] an hard world?"& he is treated on all sides in every way by God & Man.?"and alas all I can do is to watch & weep over the progress of the evil". Mary goes on to update Trelawny on recent British politics and the implications for Greek Independence, including George Canning's "coup de maitre" accession as Prime Minister. ii) To John George Cochrane, 33 Somerset Street, 23 Dec. 1829 Single small page addressing the Scottish editor and publisher of the Foreign Quarterly Review, describing "M. Beyles' book" (Stendhal's Promenades dans Rome) as "so trite so unentertaining?"so very commonplace that I have found it quite impossible to do anything with it". Conceivably written in reply to an invitation to translate or review the book. iii) To Frederic Mansel Reynolds, 33 Somerset Street, [n.d., Dec. 1832/Jan. 1833?] Four small pages (latterly mounted in a die-cut paper frame bearing the legend "Mrs Shelley author of "Frankenstein", daughter of William Godwin") addressing the novelist and editor of The Keepsake, complaining of a returned copy, and mentioning "one of the Keepsakes you sent me has pages omitted?"& is turned topsy turvy in the binding?"I sent it to a friend in the country who finds it a riddle-my-ree". The Keepsake for 1833 contained two stories by Mary Shelley: "The Brother and Sister, an Italian Story" and "The Invisible Girl". iv) To Mary Gaskell, Harrow, [May 1833?"36?] Two medium-sized pages addressing the wife of Daniel Gaskell (MP 1832?"7), acquaintances of Claire Clairmont who Mary introduced to William Godwin. The letter is a genial excuse for missing their attempted visit, and urging them to make another. v) To [Celia Gore?], Harrow, [1833?"6?] Single small page, lacking half of the verso address, and beginning without a "To...", but conjectured to be to Celia "Cissy" Gore, one of the ten children of Catherine Frances Gore, who visited Mary Shelley on 2 September 1834 as recorded in Godwin's journal. Mary arranges a play-date for her son Percy Florence, mentioning his love for "his dear Henry" (Celia's son). vi) To Edward Trelawny, [14 North Bank?] 14 May 1836 One-and-a-quarter large pages discussing with extraordinary vehemence her dislike of Claire Clairmont: "Claire always harps upon my desertion of her?"as if I could desert one I never clung to?"we were never friends?"Now, I would not go to Paradise, with her for a companion?"she poisoned my life when young?"that is over now?"but as we never loved each other, why these eternal complaints to me of me. I respect her now much?"& pity her deeply?"but years ago my idea of Heaven was a world without a Claire?"of course these feelings are altered?"but she has still the faculty of making me more uncomfortable than any human being?"a faculty she, unconsciously perhaps, never fails to exert whenever I see her." vii) To Claire Clairmont, [24 South Audley Street], 2 May 1837 Single small page, a terse letter to Claire enclosing the inscription of her husband "Yours ever faithfully?"Percy B. Shelley" (the enclosure still present, presumably clipped from an earlier letter to Mary), accompanied by Mary's note, "I hope the person to whom you give it will appreciate it as it deserves?"or I should not like to part with it". Given that the chief root of Mary's dislike of Claire lay in Claire's intrusion into Mary's relationship with Percy Shelley (Claire and he almost certainly had an affair, and may even have had a child together), Mary's gift to Claire of such a treasured relict of her "faithful" husband is remarkable. viii) To Harriet Boinville, [84 Park Street, Mar.?"May 1841?] Two small pages, lacking first half of letter, to Harriet Boinville, sister-in-law to the radical vegan John Frank Newton. Back in 1813 Percy Shelley had been close friends with the Boinvilles when married to Harriet Westbrook, and he had also been in love with Harriet Boinville's daughter. Mary's letter is full of interest, discussing the Godwin family and Claire, then going on to fantasise (from the depths of a debilitating illness) about her travel prospects based upon her European connections: "I passed happy hours among you in Paris?"a dark spell has been over me since my return?"Tell Alfred I still dream of the Piramids?"A friend of mine (with a wife my particular friend) is Chargé d'Affaires at Constantinople?"another friend is Prime Minister at Athens?"another of my lady friends passes the winter at Palermo & wants me to join?"I might make such a delightful tour!?"What a grumbling wretch I am forgive me!" The Athenian is Alexander Mavrocordato, who was, at the time of writing, travelling from London to Athens to take up the post of Greek prime minister. He arrived on 12 June and served barely nine weeks, being dismissed by the king on 21 August 1841. ix) To Bartolomeo Cini, [Florence,] [13] Mar. 1843 Three large pages, addressing the son-in-law of Margaret King, Lady Mountcashel (1773?"1835), whom Percy and Mary Shelley had known as their liberal hostess "Mrs Mason" at Casa Silva, Pisa. Lady Mountcashel had abandoned her title on eloping to live with Irishman George Tighe, taking "Mrs Mason" from the character of the governess in Mary Shelley's mother Mary Wollstonecraft's book Original Stories. As a child in Ireland she had been Wollstonecraft's pupil and protégé, and was glad to reciprocate her governess's care by offering support to the Shelleys and Claire when they arrived in Pisa in 1820, introducing them to a new radical intellectual circle. For his part George Tighe helped to satisfy Percy Shelley's appetite for information about new scientific researches. Margaret's daughter Nerina married Bartolomeo Cini, a Tuscan nobleman mentioned by Mary in 1834 as "an amiable & cultivated & rich Italian". Cini went on to be an important Liberal politician and railway financier. In the letter Mary broaches the matter of Percy Shelley having been "molto amico della madre di Nerina" ("very friendly with Nerina's mother"), and enquires about the possible survival of any letters from Shelley, in spite of the rumour that all the mother's letters had been burned after her death. Mary travelled with her son Percy Florence in Italy in 1840, 1842 and 1843, and recorded her travels in Rambles in Germany and Italy (1844). x) To Bartolomeo Cini, Via Sistina 64, 3 Piano, Rome, 6 Apr. [1843] Three medium-sized pages, discussing social arrangements, and stating "Il mio debito bramerei saldare" [I want to settle my debt]. xi) To Bartolomeo Cini, Alla Cocumella, Sorrento, 16 May [1843] Two medium-sized pages, thanking Cini for "le lettre che mi ha mandato" [the letters you have sent me], presumably Shelley's as requested in letter ix, and stating her intention to stay in Sorrento "two?"three or four months", and sending the regards of Percy Florence and his friend Andrew Alexander Knox, a Cambridge friend of Percy Florence, whom Mary helped in his journalistic career, and who accompanied them on their Italian tour. xii) To Bartolomeo Cini, Sorrento, 15 June [1843] Two large pages, complaining of the "pessima reputazione esateza" [wretched reputation for accuracy] of the Naples and Sorrento postal service, and informing him of their intention to leave for England soon. She goes on to excuse Sorrento as "veramente un Paradiso?"la sua belta è indicibile?"viviamo in una pace e tranquilita me molto piacevole; ma Percy e Knox lo trova un po monotono" [truly a Paradise?"its beauty is indescribable?"we live in a peace and tranquillity that is very agreeable to me; but Percy and Knox find it a little monotonous". xiii) To Bartolomeo Cini, Sorrento, 10 July [1843] One-and-a-half large pages, relating the arrival (all at once) of Cini's long-awaited letters, mentioning her plans to leave, pass by Livorno to pay her debt, and hoping to see Nerina again. She notes "mi dispiace tanto viaggare mare in tempo cattivo" [I dislike travelling by sea in bad weather very much], an affecting admission given her husband having drowned twenty years earlier in a squall near Livorno. xiv) To an unidentified recipient, Putney, 24 Oct. [1843?] Two small pages, noting "Percy [Florence] & I have been gadding", and accepting an invitation to dine. The letter has been mounted in a die-cut paper frame bearing a neat inscription; "Autograph note of Mary Shelley, daughter of Mary Wollstonecraft Godwin and second wife of the Poet Percy B. Shelley". xv) To Adelaide Sartoris, Putney, 12 June [1844] Single small page, to Adelaide Sartoris, née Kemble, sister of Fanny Kemble (both Mary's friends since 1841), inviting her and her husband to see the Thames Regatta from her garden. xvi) To Alexander Blackwood?, Putney, 11 Jan. 1845 Four medium-sized pages, to Alexander Blackwood [? Bennett's attribution]. Mary solicits (unsuccessfully) for the publication of "a tale that has been confided to me from India" written by a Bengal artillery lieutenant, Captain Sir James Abbott, who had already had his Narrative of a Journey from Heraut to Khiva, Moscow, and St Petersburgh published by W. H. Allen in 1843. She describes the tale as "a romantic tale of India by an Old Indian" and its author as "a personal friend to Sir John McNeil, late Ambassador to Persia". xvii) To Marianna Hammond, Putney, 4 Feb. [1845] Two large pages (incomplete or at least unsigned) to Marianna, a friend of Claire Clairmont, relating Claire's health and problems with inheritance after the death of Sir Timothy Shelley. Mary also relates a piece of contemporary gossip about the death of Lady Elizabeth Aldborough (married the third earl in 1777): "She sent for a doctor & asked 'Is it sink or swim this time?' 'You need not fear?"you will swim.'" xviii) To Bartolomeo Cini, [Putney, Jan.?"Apr. 1845?] Four small pages, inviting Cini, before he leaves London, to attend a dinner party: "e preghero la Chiara anche di venire e si fara una piccola reunion di amici?"Toscanese per cosi dire" [I shall beg Claire to come as well and we shall have a small reunion of friends?"in the Tuscan fashion so to speak". xix) To Miss Courtney, 24 Chester Square, [1846?"50?] Single medium-sized page, to a "Miss Courtney", inviting her to dine: "only a quiet dinner, with no party after". xx) To an unidentified recipient, [24 Chester Square, 16 Apr.?"22 Jul. 1847?] Two-sided small fragment (signed, also torn with tape repair), written in ill-health: "...all are gone except the natural want of strength consequent but of that I cure every day?"My paper is done so I can only add I am Affectionately yours Mary Shelley". xxi) To an unidentified recipient, [24 Chester Square, 26 Dec. 1847?"8?] Two-sided small fragment (signed), mentioning the death of ?Georgina Beauclerk Paul, who "left us?"& was among the Angels she resembled by her warm loving heart".

        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.].

        Compte général de l'administration de la justice criminelle en France, pendant l'année 1825, Présenté au Roi, par le Garde des Sceaux, ministre secrétaire d'état au département de la justice. Réunion de 6 Compte-généraux pour les années 1825, 1826, 1827, 1828, 1829 et 1830.

      Paris: Imprimerie Royale, 1827 - 1831 - Editions originales, 6 ouvrages reliés en 1 volume fort in-4; Peyronnet, année 1825: xi, [iii], 110p., [vi: Errata, Table]. 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.

        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.].

        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.

        Examen de la Constitucion de Don Pedro, Y de Los Derechos del Infante.

      1827 - The Complicated Question of the Portuguese Succession, 1826-1827 [Portugal]. [Bordigne, Comte de]. Examen de la Constitucion de Don Pedro, Y de Los Derechos del Infante Don Muguel. Dedicado a Los Portugueses Fieles. Paris: [s.n.]. 1827. 195 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Original plain publisher wrappers, untrimmed edges. 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. KVK locates 7 copies, all in Europe, OCLC locates 1 (at the Catholic University of America). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Researches on the Jeynes and Boodhists; conjectured to be the Brachmanes of Ancient India. In which is introduced a Discussion on the Worship of the Serpent in Various Countries of the World.

      London: for the Author, and sold by John Rodwell, 1827 - Quarto (270 × 208 mm) Recent blue half straight-grained morocco, marbled boards, by Trevor Lloyd, title direct to the spine, flat bands with an attractive foliate roll, fleurons gilt to the compartments, double gilt fillets to the spine and corner edges, Some browning throughout, but overall a very good copy in an attractive modern pastiche binding. 6 lithographic plates. First edition. A work of speculative philology by the author of Military Memoirs of Mr. George Thomas and The History of the Reign of Shah-Alum. Francklin (1763-1839) was the son of the classical scholar and dramatist Thomas Francklin. He was educated at Westminster and Trinity College, Cambridge, before being commissioned ensign in the Bengal Army and posted to the 19th Bengal Native Infantry in 1783, rising by 1814 to lieutenant-colonel both in his regiment and in the Army. "A distinguished officer, Francklin also enjoyed considerable reputation as an oriental scholar. In 1786 he made a tour of Persia, in the course of which he lived at Shiraz for eight months as the close friend of a Persian family, and was thus able to write a fuller account of Persian customs than had before appeared His publications also include a compilation of the memoirs of George Thomas, the military adventurer in India; translations from Persian; archaeological remarks on the plain of Troy, seeking to corroborate the existence of an ancient city there; historical, political, geographic, economic, and religious essays on parts of India. His religious writings include a discussion of the worship of the serpent in various parts of the world. He also maintained a learned correspondence with William Vincent and was one of the few people to whom Dean Vincent acknowledged obligations in the preface to the Periplus" (ODNB). Francklin was a member, librarian and Member of the Council, of the Royal Asiatic Society, and was also a member of the Asiatic Society of Bengal. 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. He has also a long chapter on the serpent worship in various parts of the world He has followed Vossius in his leading illustrations; but though the information he affords us is less elaborate, it is certainly more pleasing to the general reader than that contained in the celebrated treatise De Origine et de Progressu Idololatriae [, 1641] or even in that of Faber [Origins of Pagan Idolatry, 1816]".
