        Our Country. Vol. 1. No. 11. September 13, 1828

      Hager's-Town [Md]: Printed alternately at the Offices of the Torch Light & Farmers' Register, 1828. First edition. Self wrappers. A very good copy, a few brown spots and folds, two marginal tears with some expert repairs, period signature in margin. . Our Country was a presidential campaign newspaper started by supporters of John Quincy Adams in his fight against Andrew Jackson and the newly formed Democrats in what was one of the dirtiest presidential campaigns ever. The paper published 18 issues, and in one issue inserted one of the now famous Coffin handbills. In this issue the editors tie Jackson to Aaron Burr, his conspiracy, and trial for treason: "He [Jackson] was either a traitor to Burr in November 1805 when he wrote his letter to Claiborne, or he was a traitor to his country in December of the same year, when he took Burr into his house, and appeared in the streets and public places with him as his bosom friend and pledged supporter." The paper publishes an extract from a financial account showing moneys owed to Jackson by Burr for the purchase of ships for use in his conspiracy. Further attacks against Jackson followed, using the words of Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Hart Benton, and others. Scarce. OCLC locates four copies: three in Maryland and one at the Amer. Antiquarian Society. We could find none at auction except a copy of the prospectus for the paper which notes it is to be a corrective for the "flood of false and spurious intelligence which has been let loose... principally by the opposition presses, by which the public mind has been... misled and corrupted.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED

      Date unknown, circa 1828.. 16 lines handwritten in ink on half a sheet of notepaper without address, unfolded size: 320 x 205 mm, 13 x 8 inches. Addressed to Miss Sarah Lachlan for whom he had written the acrostic poem Un Solitaire: " Dear Miss Lachlan, Emma has so few days to stay with me, that it would be painful to me to part with her for one whole one. But I will bring her to tea with you on Monday, and you shall let us go before 8. I enclose your brother an autograph of Jekyll, Bencher of the Temple, and the reputed wit of the Bar for the last 50 years. Your brother is too young to have heard much about him, but he has been widely known in his profession, as a capital epigrammatist etc. and was the reigning joker of his age. With Emma's kindest love to your aunt & self. Yours truly C Lamb, Saturday evening." The letter refers to Emma Isola the adopted daughter of Charles and Mary. She was an accomplished amateur artist and did a drawing to go with the poem Un Solitaire written for Miss Lachlan. With the letter is a copy of the poem in an unknown hand on a pale yellow leaf to which is pasted a brief note seemingly in Lamb's hand: "Mr Lamb has scribbled on a vacant leaf, which may be torn out without ceremony, if his nonsense is out of place. He will in that case beg leave to try again. Miss Isola requests him to return thanks for a sight of the album, & could wish her contribution better". There are very slight textual differences in this version of the poem from the usual printed one. Finally there is a sheet of notepaper with a poem of 3 4-line stanzas by Mary Lamb beginning: "My sweetly modest tranquil Child / So Humble duteous pensive mild.." addressed to "My Dear Sarah with my earnest prayers for every happiness to attend Her, M L". This seems also to concern Sarah Lachlan and was written for the occasion of her birthday. The letters have been folded twice, remains of a small red seal on Charles Lamb's, address panel browned on Mary's, leaf with Un Solitaire has a greetings card pasted to reverse from when it was in an album.

Clark II: 182. Monaghan: French Travellers 178B. Larned 1591. Hubach 59. Giacomo Costantino Beltrami was a naturalist and explorer who left Italy for Europe after a period of political persecution, then journeyed to America where he traveled from Pittsburgh down the Ohio and up the Mississippi to Ft. Anthony; then to Canada, down the Red River, across to the Missouri and down the Mississippi to New Orleans. For a while he had joined up with an expedition led by Major Stephen Long in 1823 but left to travel again on his own after relations with Long soured. Vol. II. is "almost entirely devoted to the author?s travels among the North-western Indians, of whom he gives some novel particulars. The narrations of what he witnessed are tinged with the peculiar glow of the author?s temperament. Beltrami must have moved in a gigantic world, if he saw external objects through the same media with which he viewed his own person and accomplishments, " Field, Indian Bibliography, p. 28. The work was not well received. Nearly invisible repair to front hinge, else a very good set, extremities worn, scattered foxing; tear at inner margin to first few leaves, offsetting on title, folding map remounted, creased, trimmed to exclude the left side neat line but without loss to map, mainly marginal repairs to two tears on verso of one plan.

      Philadelphia: Carey, Lea, and Carey. 1828. First. First American Editions and the true first complete edition of the second series of essays (the second series wasn't published in England until 1833 as The Last Essays of Elia). Two volumes. 12mos. Linen and original printed glazed papercovered boards with applied paper spine labels. Each volume bears on the front pastedown the bookplate of James Fenimore Cooper, Jr., grandson of the American author. Laid in are an old bookseller's description, and a letter dated in 1916, to Mrs. James Fenimore Cooper, Jr., sending the books along, and discussing some of the bibliographical niceties. Front joint professionally and neatly repaired, and the spine label partly perished on First Series, small stains to the boards, chip to the unprinted front fly in Second Series, still a nice set, in the uncommon original boards, in better condition than one might reasonably expect of these famous, autobiographical essays, and with an interesting association. In 1820 Lamb invented the pseudonym for his first essay, about the work place of his brother, by taking the name of a clerk no longer employed there. The pseudonym stuck, however, and it allowed Lamb to develop a persona with which he examined a variety of subjects with celebrated humor and style. Probably Lamb's best work, though he is also remembered for his children's versions of Shakespeare and Homer which he wrote with his sister Mary (who became his charge after she had a bout of insanity in 1796 and killed their mother). .

        Andreas Zaimis. "Zaimis,

      Philhellenic: Munich, Karl August Krazeisen. 1828-1831., 1831. Black & white lithograph of Andreas Zaimis from Krazeizen's "Bildnisse ausgezeichneter Greichen und Philhellene nebst einigen Ansichten und Trachten." ["Portraits of famous Greeks and Philellenes, along with some views and costumes designed from nature and published by Karl Krazeisen"). verso blank. Head and shoulders portrait with printed signature below. Andreas Asimakou Zaimis (1791–1840) was a Greek freedom fighter and government leader during the Greek War of Independence. Born in Kalavryta, in the northern Peloponnesos, Zaimis was a leader of armed men who fought the Ottoman Turks, ultimately securing Greece's freedom. In 1826, Zaimis was chosen as the leader of the interim Greek government. His son, Thrasivoulos Zaimis, and grandson, Alexandros Zaimis, would also serve as Prime Ministers of Greece. Image bright and clean; light spotting to blank borders. Karl August Krazeisen 1794- 1878. was an amateur artist and soldier in 1812 he entered the Bavarian army and took part in the 1813/1814's war against Napoleon's domination. In 1826, having by then promoted to lieutenant, along with 11 other Bavarians went to Greece,as aide to Carl von Heydeck where the Greek War of Independence was going through a critical phase, with the entrance of the Egyptians It was the first public action to support struggle of Greeks, taken by small European state of Bavarian King and Philhellen Ludwig. Krazeisen was not a professional artist. But having the ability to draw, he used his stay in Greece with historical insight, creating portraits of the heroes of the war, the sketches of camps, costumes, uniforms,and battle plans. He returned to Munich in 1827,and published his Greek album, from 1828-31 which promoted the Greek cause throughout Europe As Krazeisen had drawn all Greek leaders living at the time of his stay in Greece, his album constitutes a principal source and the most comprehensive collection of its kind: he remained the only artist to have portrayed the Greek national heroes during their lifetime. The newly founded modern Greek state honoured him with the Order of the Redeemer Under the command of Charles Nicolas Fabvier Krazeisen was present at the battles of the Acropolis, Athens from November 1826 till April 1827 (Battle of Phaleron), he is portrayed by Theodoros Vrysakis in his famous painting of the event "The camp of Georgios Karaiskakis"(1855); indeed it is clear that Vrysakis used the portraits of Krazaeisen as reference for the painting.

        La Defaite "La Defaite" or"Le Giaour, vainqueur d'Hassan

      Philhellenic: Paris Jazet. 1828. Black & white mezzotint by Horace Vernet inspired by Lord Byron's poem "The Giaour "from "Turkish Tales "1813 In the particular episode from Le Giaour portrayed in the present work, the eponymous hero is seen having avenged the murder of his mistress by killing Hassan, her cruel Turkish master. Dark Impression; overall light spotting, most noticeable in margins.;scratch to upper right corner of image. Le Giaour is a subject borrowed by Vernet from Lord Byron's poem - the first of his Turkish Tales - published in 1813. Vernet would have known the work through Amede Pichot's translation. The vivid colour and drama of the Turkish Tales provided a rich source book for a generation of artists, Romantic and Classicist alike, eager to support the Greek cause in the War of Independence from their Turkish overlords. The Salons of 1824, 1827 and 1831, as well as many independent Paris exhibitions, including two at the Galerie Lebrun organised as charitable functions specifically "Au profit des grecs"saw numerous portrayals of Greek motifs. The Salon of 1827, for instance, included some 14 other Phillhelene-inspired works alongside Vernet's rendering of La Giaour. The Salon painting of La Giaour was engraved by Jazet in 1828; he added a rocky landscape. Philhellenic The Giaour La Defaite

        The Stranger's Grave

      Exeter, 1828 - 12mo. A short, extravagant novel of incest, parricide, and murder published first in London in 1823. "There is not a crime, " the anti-hero confesses on his deathbed, "of which man or devil can be guilty, that I have not committed. " The authorship is uncertain. Some believe Glieg, the author of THE SUBALTERN and a prolific contributor to Blackwood's and other magazines, may have published the novel anonymously. But since 1870 most readers have attributed the novel to Thomas De Quincey, and although some literary historians have debunked the idea, one (Patrick Bridgwater in DE QUINCEY'S GOTHIC MASQUERADE) has recently offered compelling evidence for De Quincey's authorship. The book is rare in any edition. A very good copy in full leather.

      London: Printed for Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, and Green..., 1828,. FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. 8vo, 189 x 114 mms., pp. xx, 182, engraved frontispiece, 37 full-steel engraved plates, each with 6 small illustrations, contemporary diced russia, gilt border on covers, spine ornately in compartments; front joint and corners a little rubbed, but a very good copy, with inscription dated 1982, "Dearest David/ To say thank you for all your valuable help. You've been wonderful. Love Julia." Oakley dedicates his work to the actress Sarah Siddons, in somewhat purple prose: "Next to the admiration I have for the genius of the Bard of Avon, is that of the transcendent powers you have evinced in portraying the magic images of his mighty mind." Selections from Dr. Johnson's preface to his edition of Shakespeare precede the selections. The work appears to be uncommon; there are four editions listed in Copac, and WorldCat has numerous electronic copies (often purporting to be books rather than an electronic copy). There is a copy signed by the author at the Folger Library.

A rare suite of six hand colored lithographed plates, (without the hand colored lithographed title) otherwise complete as issued. Oblong quarto. Plate size: 11 x 14 1/8 inches (279 x 370 mm). Bound to contemporary style in full dark green morocco. Gilt ruled borders. Gilt panel. Gilt lettering and ornaments to spine. Restoration to lower corner of plate four, otherwise a fin e copy.According to the ABPC Index, since 1923 only three copies have come to auction (1938, 1949, 1979). There are only three copies in institutional holdings worldwide.The plates:1. Le Marais2. Quartier St. Denis3. Quartier de la Bourse4. Chaussée d'Antin5. Faubourg St. Honoré6. Le Faubourg St. GermainFor reasons unknown, Ray identifies this suite as being by Eugene Lami, despite the plates clearly identified as by Monnier; the only copy to come to auction in the last thirty-five years is also identified Lami as the artist. Melcher, however, correctly identifies the suite as Monnier's, as does Marie (Marie, Aristide. Henri Monnier 1799-1877. Paris, 1931) and Champfleury. Curiously, the only copy in institutional holdings, that in the Morgan Library, belonged to Ray but though the note is under Lami's authorship the Responsibility detail in OCLC/RILN clearly states: "par Monnier.""Between 1825 and 1827 Monnier passed much of his time in London…On his return to Paris he embarked on a series of albums in which he recorded the manners and humors of the city with unprecedented profusion. Between 1826 and 1830 he satisfied the insatiable demand for his designs with almost 500 lithographs, nearly all of which were drawn with a pen and colored by hand. For each design he himself colored a master print and carefully supervised its subsequent preparation" (Ray, p. 199).François Séraphin Delpech was a French lithographer, mainly of portraits and costumes after his contemporaries.  His portrait lithographs are in the collection of Britain's National Portrait Gallery and the Louvre. He also lithographed the work of others, as here.Marie pp. 296-302. Melcher, The Life and Times of Henri Monnier, p. 211.

        Alexander Mavrocordatos "A. Mavrocordato,

      Philhellenic: Munich, Karl August Krazeisen. 1828-1831., 1831. Black & white lithograph of Alexander Mavrocordatos from Krazeizen's "Bildnisse ausgezeichneter Greichen und Philhellene nebst einigen Ansichten und Trachten." ["Portraits of famous Greeks and Philellenes, along with some views and costumes designed from nature and published by Karl Krazeisen"). verso blank. Head and shoulders portrait with printed signature below. Alexandros Mavrokordatos ( 1791- 1865, ) He was a member of the Filiki Eteria and was among the Phanariot Greeks who hastened to the Morea on the outbreak of the War of Independence in 1821. He was active in endeavouring to establish a regular government, and in January, 1822 he was elected by the First National Assembly at Epidaurus as the "President of the Executive". He commanded the advance of the Greeks into western Central Greece the same year, and suffered a serious defeat at Peta on July 16, but retrieved this disaster somewhat by his successful resistance to the First Siege of Missolonghi (Nov. 1822 to Jan. 1823). His English sympathies brought him, in the subsequent strife of factions, into opposition to the "Russian" party headed by Demetrius Ypsilanti and Kolokotronis; and though he held the portfolio of foreign affairs for a short while under the presidency of Petrobey (Petros Mavromichalis), he was compelled to withdraw from affairs until February 1825, when he again became a Secretary of State. The landing of Ibrahim Pasha followed, and Mavrocordatos again joined the army, barely escaping capture in the disaster at Sphacteria, on May 9, 1825, by swimming to Navarino. After the fall of Missolonghi (April 22, 1826) he went into retirement, until President John Capodistria made him a member of the committee for the administration of war material, a position he resigned in 1828. After Kapodistria's murder (October 9, 1831) and the resignation of his brother and successor, Augustinos Kapodistrias (April 13, 1832), Mavrocordatos became Minister of Finance. He was Vice-President of the National Assembly at Argos (July, 1832), and was appointed by King Otto as his Minister of Finance, and in 1833 Premier. Image bright and clean; light spotting to blank borders. Karl August Krazeisen 1794- 1878. was an amateur artist and soldier in 1812 he entered the Bavarian army and took part in the 1813/1814's war against Napoleon's domination. In 1826, having by then promoted to lieutenant, along with 11 other Bavarians went to Greece,as aide to Carl von Heydeck where the Greek War of Independence was going through a critical phase, with the entrance of the Egyptians It was the first public action to support struggle of Greeks, taken by small European state of Bavarian King and Philhellen Ludwig. Krazeisen was not a professional artist. But having the ability to draw, he used his stay in Greece with historical insight, creating portraits of the heroes of the war, the sketches of camps, costumes, uniforms,and battle plans. He returned to Munich in 1827,and published his Greek album, from 1828-31 which promoted the Greek cause throughout Europe As Krazeisen had drawn all Greek leaders living at the time of his stay in Greece, his album constitutes a principal source and the most comprehensive collection of its kind: he remained the only artist to have portrayed the Greek national heroes during their lifetime. The newly founded modern Greek state honoured him with the Order of the Redeemer Under the command of Charles Nicolas Fabvier Krazeisen was present at the battles of the Acropolis, Athens from November 1826 till April 1827 (Battle of Phaleron), he is portrayed by Theodoros Vrysakis in his famous painting of the event "The camp of Georgios Karaiskakis"(1855); indeed it is clear that Vrysakis used the portraits of Krazaeisen as reference for the painting.

        The Town of New Navarino "The Town of New Navarino with La Provence .... 2 days after the Battle

      Philhellenic: London Colnaghi & Son, Pall Mall East January 18th 1828. Black & white lithograph Plate 13 from Reinagle's "Illustrations of the Battle of Navarin." Printed on india paper, mounted, verso blank. View of the town and castle of New Navarino, 2 days after the Battle: "The town of Navarino stands on a promomtory at the foot of Mount Tamathia, it extends a quarter league in length from east to west, but is much less in width; the fortifications were built in 1572, and were never repaired until the war with the Russians in 1770. The town is surrounded by a wall without ditches, outworks, or rampartsand the artillery consists of about forty iron guns. Navarin surrendered to the Turks on 23rd May 1825." Dark impression; some light spotting within image ; margins cut short [2-6mm]. George Philip Reinagle RA 1802- 1835. Marine artist studied with his father Ramsey Reinagle RA. exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1822. The Battle Of Navarino was fought off the west coast of the Peloponnesus on October 20th 1827 and effectively ended Turkish resistance to Greek independence with the destruction of the Turkish-Egyptian fleet by the British- Russian- French fleet under Vice Admiral Sir Edward Codrington, hero of Trafalgar. Reinagle witnessed the battle form on board the HMS Mosquito and on his return to London produced the "Illustrations of the Battle of Navarino."published in 1828. The news of Navarino made Codrington a hero twice over in the eyes of the general British public. But in Whitehall, senior naval and diplomatic echelons were appalled by the outcome of his campaign. It was considered that Codrington had grossly exceeded his instructions by provoking a showdown with the Ottoman fleetInitially, official disapproval of Codrington had to be restrained because of the admiral's huge popularity with the public. The Admiralty's revenge took petty form, such as its refusal, despite repeated requests by Codrington, to pay his crews their traditional prize-money from the sale of captured Ottoman treasure and goods. Meanwhile, Wellington was biding his time until he felt it was politically safe to remove Codrington from the Mediterranean theatre. Finally, in June 1828, the Admiralty announced that Codrington was being relieved of his command (although he remained in acting-command until his replacement arrived in August). Although the King felt obliged by public opinion to grant Codrington the high honour of the Grand Cross of the Bath, the Admiralty's failure to give him another operational command in his remaining decade of service or to promote him to full Admiral until shortly before his retirement from the Navy in 1837, were eloquent testimony to his fall from favour.

        Official Printed Letter to the "President of Trinity College &c, &c, &c, Cambridge" Regarding the Princess' Invention - "North and South Compass"]: To the Naval and Maritime Officers of Great Britain., to ascertain the cause of the Mariner's Compasses in modern use having so greatly vacillated in the Arctic regions.

      London 1828 - [London], [August 29 1828]. On a folded leaf, size when folded: Quarto (ca. 24x19 cm). 1 p. With a hand written address, postal stamps and the princess' wax seal on the last page. Manuscript text on the same page (probably written by the princess): "With the Princess Olive's respects for the Knowledge of the University of Oxford". Fold marks, paper aged, minor chip on the last page caused by opening, otherwise a very good document. The letter addressed to all naval and maritime officers of Great Britain presents Princess Olive's invention - North and South Compass "adapted for each side of the Equator; such being upon an entire new principle, and different to any compasses hitherto made, have been appointed of by the highest scientific and naval characters". She "has been enabled, through her philosophical researches, to ascertain the cause of the Mariner's Compasses in modern use having so greatly vacillated in the Arctic regions. The Princess Olive also has discovered, that a distinct and separate Mariner's Compass is required in the North West and South East passages of the Ocean". The Princess expresses hope that her inventions "which, in all their bearings, will be found so importantly useful to Mariners in general, will experience the patronage of the naval world". At the end follows the schedule of public presentation of the models which will take place at the Princess¿ residence, "No. 2, Park Row, Mills Buildings, Knightsbridge". Not much is known about this "invention" which most likely was a way to establish the Princess' social status or to pay off some debts. An article with similar content has been published in the Morning Herald (1 August 1828). Although our letter is addressed to the President of the Cambridge Trinity College, the handwritten text expresses "Princess Olive's respects for the knowledge of the University of Oxford" [sic!]. Olivia Serres, a British painter and writer, was also known as an impostor, who claimed the title of Princess Olive of Cumberland. "Born Olivia Wilmot, a daughter of a house painter Robert Wilmot, she married John Thomas Serres (1759-1825), marine painter to George III, in 1791. Financially reckless, she was several times imprisoned for debt. In 1817 she wrote a letter to the Prince Regent, claiming that she was the natural daughter of Prince Henry, Duke of Cumberland by Mrs. Olive Payne (who was her actual aunt). In 1821, she had herself rebaptized as the daughter of the Duke of Cumberland at Islington Church, and "announced" her parentage in several letters to the newspapers and in pamphlets. The same year, however, she was arrested again for debt and placed in the King's Bench Prison. She appealed to the public for contributions, placing posters reading "The Princess of Cumberland in Captivity!" all over London, and publishing, in 1822, further details of her claims. Olive managed to persuade Sir Gerard Noel, a Member of Parliament, to make inquiry into her claims, but by this time the royal family was fighting back. In 1823 Sir Robert Peel, then Home Secretary, speaking in parliament, responded to Noel's speech in Olive's favour with a denunciation of her documents as forgeries and her story as a fabrication. It was concluded that her claims were false, but Olive escaped prosecution for forgery. Olive continued to have economical problems and was for the rest of her life in and out of debtors' prisons" (Wikipedia).

        AMERICAN ORNITHOLOGY; OR THE NATURAL HISTORY OF THE BIRDS OF THE UNITED STATES. ILLUSTRATED WITH PLATES ENGRAVED AND COLOURED FROM ORIGINAL DRAWINGS TAKEN FROM NATURE

      New York & Philadelphia: Collins & Co. and Harrison Hall, 1828-1829.. Three quarto text volumes plus folio atlas volume. Text: cxcix,[1],230,[1]; 456 [without a leaf number vii-viii, as usual]; vi,396pp., 4pp. subscribers' list at rear of vol. III. Atlas: Seventy-six handcolored engraved plates, some heightened with gum arabic, by A. Lawson (52), J.G. Warnicke (21), G. Murray (2), and B. Tanner (1), all after Wilson. Expertly bound to style in half red straight-grained morocco and period near-uniform marbled boards, spines gilt. Very good. The second full edition of Wilson's work, with plates in their most desirable form. This is the most important work on American ornithology before Audubon. "Science would lose little if every scrap of pre-Wilsonian writing about United States birds could be annihilated" - Coues. The first edition of Wilson's life-work was published in nine volumes between 1808 and 1814. The present edition was prepared by Wilson's friend and colleague, George Ord, who improved the work textually by re-arranging the work in a systematic order by species and by contributing an important "Sketch of the Author's Life" (pp.vii-cxcix in the first text volume) as well as numerous additional textual notes. He also notes in his preface to the first text volume that he arranged for the plates to be "carefully examined and retouched" by Alexander Lawson (the original engraver of most of the plates). Reading between the lines of Ord's preface, it is clear that he believed the plates in the present edition to be better than the first, and this is the current general view: it is noted in FINE BIRD BOOKS that "the plates [are] coloured better," and Wood writes: "The hand- colored drawings in the atlas are from the original copper plates, colored anew by pigments which seem to have been better quality than those used by Wilson. In the copy under notice, the colors are very fresh: those of the original are faded and in some cases quite disintegrated." In addition to the coloring, better quality paper was used in this edition, thus avoiding the foxing which almost inevitably mars the first. Thus, this edition is more desirable than the first. WOOD, p.630. SABIN 104598. BM (NATURAL HISTORY), p.2332. NISSEN (IVB) 992. FINE BIRD BOOKS 114.

Reginald Heber (1783-1826) was an English clergyman, intellectual and hymn-writer, who gained an early reputation at Oxford University as a poet. In 1823 he accepted an appointment as Bishop of Calcutta, which, at that time included the whole of India, Ceylon, and Australia. Heber travelled extensively within his Indian diocese, working hard to improve the spiritual and general living conditions. In 1826 Heber died while visiting Trichinopoly South India, due to a combination of his tiring duties, tough climate and bad health. His interest in Indian life is demonstrated in this vivid major three volume work, Narrative of A Journey Through The Upper Provinces of India, From Calcutta to Bombay 1824-1825, published by his widow Amalia Heber in 1828 two years after his death. The book was hugely popular, and five new editions were published by 1844. Contemporary and recent historians have praised his work. It is a historically important record of the India of his day.
