        The History of Sixteen Wonderful Old Women, Illustrated By As Many Engravings; Exhibiting Their Principal Eccentricities and Amusements

      London: John Harris, 1827. Soft cover. Very Good. Original printed wraps; 7 x 4 1/4 inches; 16 leaves, printed on one side only, each leaf with a hand-colored engraving and verse below. Wraps soiled and grubby with tide marks to top edges, spine hinge split and was repaired with scotch tape, original string binding has broken leaving leaves loose in wraps, scattered foxing and smudging, booksellers label from Niddery Booksellers of Watford inside front cover. First published in 1820, reprinted in 1821, the paper of this copy is watermarked 1827. One of the rarest of the publisher's 'Cabinet' series and most interesting because it was the first printed collection of Limericks. A year later, the publisher John Marshall brought out an imitation: Anecdotes and Adventures of Fifteen Gentlemen (1821), which inspired Edward Lear to write his own comic rhymes using the same verse form, and ultimately to produce his celebrated Book of Nonsense in 1846.

        THE DRAMATIC WORKS OF JOHN FORD

      London: John Murray, 1827. First Gifford Edition. Featuring high-quality materials and expert workmanship, these Riviere bindings are in the Neoclassical style popularized by London's German emigré binders in the 18th century. John Ford (bap. 1586 - ca. 1639) trained as a lawyer and lived in the Middle Temple his entire adult life. He produced some poetic works during his twenties, but turned to drama around 1620, becoming one of the major dramatists of the reign of Charles I. His best-known work is the controversial tragedy of doomed romance between a brother and sister, "Tis Pity She's a Whore"--included here under that title rather than the euphemistic "Brother and Sister" used in some Victorian editions. Ford's plays tend to be dark and violent in the style of John Webster (an early collaborator and major influence), displaying what may seem to us a very modern understanding of psychological pathologies (and no doubt reflecting a familiarity with Burton's "Anatomy of Melancholy"). While a number of his works were lost, and Ford himself has largely fallen into obscurity, "Tis Pity She's a Whore" continues to be produced on the stage and adapted for the screen, and even inspired a song on David Bowie's final album.. 222 x 138 mm. (8 3/4 x 5 1/2"). Two volumes. With notes critical and explanatory by W. Gifford. First Gifford Edition. QUITE HANDSOME LATER 19TH CENTURY GREEN MOROCCO BY RIVIERE (stamp-signed on verso of front free endpaper), covers framed by plain and decorative gilt rules and Greek key roll, flat spines elaborately gilt in compartments of varying sizes divided by bead and lozenge roll, two of these with red or tan morocco label, the others (including one that is elongated) featuring Neoclassical tooling, with urns, flowers, and garlands, turn-ins with Greek key roll, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Front pastedown with oval morocco Huth bookplate and ex libris of L. F. Aubone Dare and his wife Louise. A few spots of foxing to opening leaves, otherwise A REMARKABLY FINE SET, clean, fresh, and bright internally, in lustrous bindings with no signs of wear.

Left margin lightly trimmed, tiny tear and crease in upper portion of broadside, not affecting text, else fine. A marvelously preserved theatrical broadside advertising the final performances of Charles Mathews' famous production, TRIP TO AMERICA. Charles Mathews (1776-1835) was an extremely popular British actor and entertainer in the early 19th century, particularly renowned for his talents as a mimic. TRIP TO AMERICA, a one-man show conceived after an 1824 tour of the U.S., featured Mathews' imitations of various types of Americans, black and white, "causing some little irritation in the United States, from which he afterwards suffered" (DNB). The entertainment was divided into three parts, the first two relating the story of Mathews' journey, with "American phrases expounded," various characters presented, including "native Indians," "General Jackson," a "French poet laureat," a "Real Yankee," and a "Black Tragedian," and several songs performed, including "Opossum up a Gum Tree.(Real Negro Melody)." Part III, a "Monopolylogue, called All Well at Natchitoches," featured five characters, including Agamemnon, "a poor runaway slave," and Mr. O'Sullivan, "an Irish improver of his fortunes." DNB XIII, pp.34-37.

        Redouté - Roses: Rosa Centifolia - Rosier a? cent Feuilles.

      Zogenaamde stippelgravure, in kleur gedrukt en met de hand verfraaid, uit ?Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs??, uitgegeven te Parijs 1827-1833, plaat nr. 118 gegraveerd door Langlois, naar tekeningen van Pierre-Joseph Redout? (St. Hubert 1759 ?? Parijs 1840). Formaat afdruk ca. 27 x 22 cm (papier grootte: ca 49,5 x 32,4 cm). De prenten werden meestal als losse katernen aan abonnees verstuurd. In een later stadium zijn katernen tot boek gebonden, maar niet altijd. Complete boeken zijn daarom zeldzaam en een exemplaar van een dergelijk kompleet boek bevindt zich, voor zover bekend, dan ook niet in Nederland. De Koninklijke Bibliotheek in Den Haag verwijst door naar de Bibliotheque National te Parijs.Redout? was hofschilder voor Marie Antoinette en later Jos?phine de Beauharnais (de eerste vrouw van Napoleon) die beroemd was om haar tuinen in Malmaison met meer dan 250 rozen soorten. Redout? werd ?Artiste-en-residence?? op Malmaison in Reuill. Na de dood van Jos?phine's, ging het Redout? financieel minder voor de wind. Hij wordt tekenleraar bij het Mus?e d'Histoire Naturelle in 1822 en ridder van het L?gion d'Honneur in 1825. Redout? is met name bekend om zijn rozen en lelies, maar ook het puur om esthetische redenen uitgegeven werk voor "Choix des plus belles Fleurs" wordt alom geroemd.(Literatuur: Nissen BBI 1591; Pritzel 7456; Great Flower Books, p. 72; Dunthorne 235; Stafleu TL2 8750; Hunt Redout?ana 20.)

        Traite de mecanique celeste

      L'Impremerie de Crapelet, Ches J. B. M. Duprat, 1827. Complete with folding plate in Volume 4, all half titles and errata; with an extra errata leaf in Volume 4, uncalled for by Horblit. Volumes I and II printed on paper watermarked "Mecanique Celeste." In prize half calf, gilt arms of Glasgow University, spines elaborately gilt with morocco labels. With prize bookplate awarding this copy to George Johnson in the class of physics, April 1910. Johnson (b.1889) was a navel architect who graduated in 1912. During World War I he worked on the battle-cruiser Renown and submarines for the Fairfield Shipbuilding and Engineering Co. A fine set. pp. First edition, first issue, first state of the author's monumental work in which all the laws of planetary motion are deduced from the concept of universal gravity. It includes all supplements found lacking in many copies. Considered a sequel to Newton's Principia, Laplace argues that the universe was really a great self-regulating machine and that the whole solar system could continue on its existing plan for an immense period of time. This was a great step forward from the Newtonian uncertainties in this area. He also offered a brilliant explanation of the secular inequalities of the mean motion of the moon about the earth, a problem which Euler and Lagrange had failed to solve. This work also contains Laplace's fundamental contribution to the subject of capillarity in which he showed for the first time that capillary phenomena could be explained by the assumption of forces between the ultimate particles of matter, varying inversely as a power higher than the square of the distance. Laplace (1749-1827), considered the Isaac Newton of France, was one of the most influential scientists in the fields of mathematics, celestial mechanics, and physics. He dedicated this major work to Bonaparte (Volume 3), who honored him with the title of Marquis. Dibner, 14; Horblit, 63; Norman, 1277; Printing & the Mind of Man, 252.

        La Petite Fleuriste, ou L'Art de Faire les Fleurs Artificielles.

      Paris: Chez Pintard, 1827. 12mo. 48pp. Illustrated with three full-page engraved plates. This booklet on floral arranging is divided into seven lessons, and accompanies a boxed set of materials for the purposes of creating these arrangements. The materials include three spools of green thread, pink rose petals, a small glass-topped box with artificial pollen, various bunched greens and small flowers. In addition, there are six hand-colored engravings showing three different types of rose, and three other flowers. Whether or not these six engravings are original to this set is unclear, as there are no recorded copies of this set available for reference. Given the nature of this item, one could safely presume that complete, unused examples are of the utmost rarity. This is fine set, housed in its original two-piece compartmented box with color illustration on lid, and decorated gilt trim. With the label of the Rouen bookseller Fleury on the inside of the box lid. Minor wear and soiling to box, one loose engraving with offsetting on verso from floral material, otherwise fine.

The binding is in excellent condition, very beautiful and especially well preserved. A very fine copy indeed. FIRST EDITION AND A WONDERFUL COPY OF THE GRAND LARGE PLATE ISSUE OF JOHN MARTIN'S ILLUSTRATED MILTON, this the issue with plates roughly 280 x 190 mm, an octavo issue with smaller plates was also produced. John Martin was one of the earliest practitioners of the mezzotint steel-engraving process, beginning his career in 1825. His subject matter tended to lean towards the spiritual and he did several engravings for illustrated bibles. His style and technique are well demonstrated in this prized work, an excellent accompaniment to Milton’s epic work. Employing this new technique Martin was able to produce plates of exquisite darkness punctuated with glorious streams of heavenly light. Martin's work has been called one of the "most significant series of British book illustrations ever to have been produced" - (Campbell) Prowett commissioned two complete sets of the plates from Martin. One set was plates measuring about 280 by 190 mm for this Imperial quarto issue. Afterwards he commissioned the second smaller (200 by 150mm) set for an Imperial octavo issue. "This book was 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, published volumes of eastern views, even incandescent gas, coalpit accidents, and Brunels new Thames Tunnel. The resulting illustrations may be heterogeneous, but they are also unforgettable" -Milton Ray

        The Spectator.

      London: printed for Geo. B. Whittaker, 1827. 8 volumes, octavo (166 x 102 mm). Finely bound by Lauriat and Co., Boston in blue half morocco, titles and centre tool to spines, raised bands, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt. Engraved frontispieces and vignettes. A few leaves lightly spotted, an excellent set. The Spectator was one of the first British periodicals, originally published daily in 1711 and 1712. Appealing to the growing numbers of middle class traders and shop keepers in London, Addison estimated it to have been read by a tenth of the city's population, primarily in coffee shops. The content was innovative and made the gentlemanly culture of letters accessible to a wide audience for the first time. The Spectator was reprinted in book form many times and remained popular through the 19th century.
