        Travels on the continent, Sicily and the Lipari Islands. Second edition.

      London, Longman, Rees, Orme, and Co., 1829. Large 8vo (26.8 x 17.2 cm). x, 494, [ii] pp.; 21 fine engraved plates, and 34 text engravings. Contemporary grained half morocco over marbled boards. Spine with five raised, stipple-gilted bands; compartments with gilt vignettes and a brown morocco label with gilt title.= The author, Richard Duppa (1770-1831), was an English writer (of, for instance, "The Life of Michel Angelo Buonarroti with his poetry and letters"), archaeologist, botanist ("The classes and orders of the Linnaean System of Botany. Illustrated by select specimens of foreign and indigenous plants"), and illustrator. This work is the illustrated narrative of his voyage through France, Switzerland, and -mostly- Italy. In the preface Duppa wrote "...the author has taken some pain to be correct in his facts and has never indulged his imagination". Indeed, his observations are detailed and correct. He even lists the travel hours and distances of each leg. Another notable feature is the author's interest in handwritings. Several plates show facsimiles of autographs and other writings. The work contains two indexes to the illustrations, namely one of the woodcuts and one of the engravings. The fine, very detailed engravings are not all on separate plates, but also present on text pages. For the appendix, Duppa lists five plates; however, there are six. There is no "first" edition of this title; this is a re-edited and very much expanded version of the author's "Miscellaneous observations on the Continent" (214 pp., 1825), which contained only the voyage through France and Switzerland. "Travels on the Continent" includes the Italian part - making up most of both the text and the illustrations. Plate numbering is odd: 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, I-VI. Uncut. Blindstamp in the top margin of the title page; a vague number stamp on the dedication page. Front hinge a bit weak; otherwise a very good copy. Rare.

        [NATURAL HISTORY; KANGAROO; EMU; COCKATOO] The Tower Menagerie :

      comprising the Natural History of the Animals contained in that Establishment; with Anecdotes of their Characters and History. London : Robert Jennings, 1829. First edition. Octavo, original quarter bound green morocco over plain boards (lightly marked), spine with gilt lettering, xviii, 241 pp, illustrated. A good copy. A fascinating early nineteenth publication which serves as a guide book to the collection of exotic animals kept at the menagerie of the Tower of London, one of the earliest public zoos. Each animal is accorded an engraved illustration and a short essay. Included are the relatively recently discovered Australian animals theKanguroo, Yellow-crested Cockatoo and New Holland Emeu, which apparently adapted to the London environment well enough to thrive and reproduce. In 1832 the Menagerie was closed and the animals were relocated to Regent's Park.Not in Ferguson.

        [Mandements, etc.].

      L'Imprimerie de Dejussieu, 1829. A substantial gathering of printed pieces by and connected to the Bishop of Autun (1797-1851) -- what appears to be => all of his official correspondence with his diocese and with various other clergymen from the time of his appointment through his death, as well as some of the letters from others to which he responded. While the first piece in the first volume was printed in Paris by Adrien le Clere & Cie., D'Héricourt subsequently used => his own designated local printer, and many of these pieces are attractively worked up with engraved headpieces, titles in decorative typefaces, and the Bishop's coat of arms vignette. Most of the pieces are in French, with four in Latin; the final few items deal with the bishop's death and the subsequent vacancy of the see. Altogether, there are dozens of pastoral letters gathered here, over 40 mandements, and a handful of circulars; also present are instructions for catechisms and first communion, and a call for public prayer "pour l'entière cessation du choléra-morbus" (1832). Given the nature of these publications and that they were printed not in Paris or another large printing center, it is clear why all are scarce, even in France. => Truly a remarkable compendium of church history during the French Restoration, July Monarchy, and Second Republic.

        Forty Etchings, from sketches made with the Camera Lucida, in North America, in 1827 and 1828.

      Edinburgh and London: Cadell & Co., Simpkin & Marshall, and Moon, Boys & Graves. 1829 - First Edition, large 4to. Title page, folding hand-coloured engraved map of the route and eastern North America as frontispiece; introductory Memorandum, List of the Etchings and 40 etched illustrations arranged two-per-plate and numbered I-XL, by William Home Lizars (1788-1859) after Hall. They are interleaved with facing letterpress captions and brief descriptions of the subject/sitters. Two surviving original tissue papers. Smart 19th century brown half-morocco gilt with gilt title to spine. Marbled endpapers, a.e.g. Hall was an Edinburgh-born captain in the Royal Navy. He travelled from Boston down the eastern seaboard of the USA, to Charleston and Savannah, west to Louisiana, thence up the Mississippi to St. Louis, Missouri; from there he headed north east through Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania, and along the Erie Canal through New York, pressing on into Canada, to Quebec and Montreal. He drew the views and characters he encountered en route with the aid of a camera lucida - an optical device invented by William Hyde Wollaston in 1807 that allowed the artist to draw an image in true perspective. The author gives an interesting commentary on the advantages of this technology in his Memorandum. The enigmatic etchings include very early views of Buffalo, Rochester, Peterborough, Riceborough, Columbus and New Orleans. Also featured are Niagara Falls, views on the Erie Canal, riverboats, a stagecoach as well as human interest, in the form of Native Americans, backwoodsmen, and black African slave drivers. One plate depicts three &#145;Canadian Voyageurs of Captain Franklin&#146;s Canoe&#146;, an encounter presumably with the celebrated explorer Sir John Franklin RN (1786&#150;1847) returning from the Canadian arctic. The present volume accompanied the author&#146;s Travels in North America in the years 1827 and 1828 (3 vols., 8vo., Cadell & Co., 1829). Hall is critical of American customs. Lizars engraved the first ten plates for J.J. Audubon&#146;s monumental Birds of America. CONDITION: Small tear to map, plates with usually fairly light, and mostly marginal, foxing and staining. All plates with faint dampstain encroaching upper right corner. Binding good. SIZE: 310 x 240mm, 12¼ x 9½ ins. REF: LoC 02001288. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Lipsiae [Leipzig], Leopold Voss, 1829. Folio (40.5 x 25.5 cm). Half title, double title page, 106 pp. including dedication page and second half title; 17 finely engraved plates of which 13 delicately hand-coloured. Contemporary quarter pebbled cloth over dark grey marbled boards. Printed label on the spine.= A very rare work by the German herpetologist and entomologist Johann Ludwig Christian Carl Gravenhorst (1777-1857). The work was published under two different titles, both present here. The alternate title, "Deliciae..." suggests that it was to be part of a larger series. This, however, is all that has been published. Nevertheless, it contains a wealth of information, including the descriptions and illustrations of many new and lesser-known species of amphibians (frogs, toads, salamanders) and turtles from his private collection, which he donated to the Museum of the University of Breslau (now Wroclaw), and of which he became the director. Uncut. With the widest possible margins. A very good, clean and unmarked copy. Adler I, p. 28; Nissen ZBI, 1682.

        Travels on the continent, Sicily and the Lipari Islands. Second edition.

      - London, Longman, Rees, Orme, and Co., 1829. Large 8vo (26.8 x 17.2 cm). x, 494, [ii] pp.; 21 fine engraved plates, and 34 text engravings. Contemporary grained half morocco over marbled boards. Spine with five raised, stipple-gilted bands; compartments with gilt vignettes and a brown morocco label with gilt title.l The author, Richard Duppa (1770-1831), was an English writer (of, for instance, "The Life of Michel Angelo Buonarroti with his poetry and letters"), archaeologist, botanist ("The classes and orders of the Linnaean System of Botany. Illustrated by select specimens of foreign and indigenous plants"), and illustrator. This work is the illustrated narrative of his voyage through France, Switzerland, and -mostly- Italy. In the preface Duppa wrote ".the author has taken some pain to be correct in his facts and has never indulged his imagination". Indeed, his observations are detailed and correct. He even lists the travel hours and distances of each leg. Another notable feature is the author's interest in handwritings. Several plates show facsimiles of autographs and other writings. The work contains two indexes to the illustrations, namely one of the woodcuts and one of the engravings. The fine, very detailed engravings are not all on separate plates, but also present on text pages. For the appendix, Duppa lists five plates; however, there are six. There is no "first" edition of this title; this is a re-edited and very much expanded version of the author's "Miscellaneous observations on the Continent" (214 pp., 1825), which contained only the voyage through France and Switzerland. "Travels on the Continent" includes the Italian part - making up most of both the text and the illustrations. Plate numbering is odd: 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, I-VI. Uncut. Blindstamp in the top margin of the title page; a vague number stamp on the dedication page. Front hinge a bit weak; otherwise a very good copy. Rare. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE BANNER OF THE CONSTITUTION. DEVOTED TO GENERAL POLITICS, POLITICAL ECONOMY, STATE PAPERS, FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC NEWS, &C. EDITED BY CONDY RAGUET, MEMBER OF THE AMERICAN PHILOSOPHICAL SOCIETY. VOLUME I., NOS. 1- 73, DECEMBER 5, 1829 THROUGH NOVEMBER 24, 1830. FIRST OF THREE VOLUMES PUBLISHED.

      Rothwell and Ustick, 1829-1830, Washington City: - Folio, 582pp plus general title leaf. Volume I comprises 73 issues, from December 5, 1829 through November 24, 1830. Beginning as a weekly, The Banner would appear on Wednesdays and Saturdays starting in January 1830. The final six pages of our copy are bound out of order, but complete: 576, [579-582], [577], 578. Half calf and marbled paper-covered boards [some extremity wear, front hinge just starting]; gilt-lettered black morocco spine labels [rubbed]. Scattered spotting; wear and tear costing several words in the first issue; pages [579-582] clipped at head, costing top line of each of those pages. Good+. Condy Raguet [1784-1842], born and raised in Philadelphia, was a founder of the Philadelphia Savings Fund Society, the first savings bank in the United States. A Federalist in his early career, he won a seat in the Pennsylvania House of Representatives in 1815, and in the Pennsylvania State Senate in 1818. President Monroe appointed him Consul to Brazil; President J.Q. Adams then made him the first U.S. Ambassador to Brazil. After the Panic of 1819 Raguet became one of the most important, articulate advocates of free trade in the Nation. Economic opinion in his hometown, Philadelphia, was dominated by protectionists like Mathew Carey. Raguet sought to publish a periodical which would counter Carey's influence and rival Hezekiah Niles's protectionist Weekly Register. Raguet's Prospectus, appearing on the first page of The Banner's first issue, explains his intention to attract "the general reader" to his opinions, and to give The Banner a wider circulation than its predecessor, 'The Free Trade Advocate and Journal of Political Economy.' The Banner would appear in three volumes, expiring in December, 1832. Raguet warns against monopolies, which are "perpetually seeking to enlarge one particular interest at the expense of the rest." The Banner opposed all monopolies, whether agricultural, commercial, or manufacturing; and printed, not only material affecting commercial activities and explaining the benefits of free trade, but all news affecting the polity, including important court cases, Congressional actions, and presidential decisions.Lomazow 235.

        First lessons in the Maori language: with a short vocabulary.London, Trübner & Co. (colophon: Berlin, printed by Unger brothers), 1862. 8vo. Contemporary red cloth (bound by Edmonds & Remnants, London).

      Hocken, p. 222; Williams 351; cf. Porter, "Williams, William Leonard", in”: DNZB, Te Ara - the Encyclopedia of New Zealand. Rare first edition of an influential grammar of the Maori language. The book contains 12 chapters with grammar lessons, followed by an English-Maori vocabulary. As was often the case in publications in Maori, the usefulness of the catchphrases was minimal. Most of them were "predictably utilitarian and colonising" (Munro), for instance "kauaka hei a Hemi taka pu" ("let not my gun be in the possession of Hemi) and "ko Hemi te tangata nana i patu taku witi" ("the man who threshed my wheat was Hemi").William Leonard Williams (1829-1916), future bishop of Waiapu, was the son William Williams who compiled an influential dictionary of Maori. He carried on his father's missionary efforts and his intensive study of the Maori language. His Maori grammar would appear in 12 further editions up to 1965.With bookseller's tickets on pastedown. The binding slightly worn at the edges and with an errata slip pasted on the back of the title-page; in good condition.

        Mémoires et souvenirs d'une femme de qualité sur le consulat et l'empire - EDITION ORIGINALE

      Paris: Mame et Delaunay-Vallée, 1829. Fine. Mame et Delaunay-Vallée, Paris 1829-1830, 14x22cm, 10 volumes reliés. - first edition. Binders half red morocco, back smooth decorated with gilded wheels, crowned figure of Marie-Louise von Habsburg, Empress of France and Duchess of Parma since the abdication of Napoleon in 1815. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Édition originale pour ces trois textes qui parurent séparément ; ils ont été réunis ici comme une trilogie. Reliures uniformes en demi maroquin rouge, dos lisses ornés de roulettes dorées, chiffre couronné de Marie-Louise de Habsbourg-Lorraine, ex-Impératrice de France et duchesse de Parme depuis l'abdication de Napoléon en 1815. Rare collection de ces mémoires anecdotiques apocryphes couvrant une trentaine d'années de la vie à la Cour. L'exemplaire a été relié dans l'ordre chronologique des événements historiques relatés, sans tenir compte des dates de parutions de chacun des volumes : en 1829 Mémoires d'une femme de qualité sur Louis XVIII, sa cour et son règne (4 t.), puis en 1830 : Mémoires d'une femme de qualité depuis la mort de Louis XVIII jusqu'à la fin de 1829 (2 t.), et en 1830 également : Mémoires et souvenirs d'une femme de qualité sur le Consulat et l'Empire (4 t.). Deux autres volumes, qui ne font pas partie de l'ensemble proposé, seront publiés en 1831 : Révélations d'une femme de qualité sur les années 1830 et 1831. Quérard donne d&#39;amples précisions sur la rédaction de ces mémoires. Le manuscrit des trois ouvrages a entièrement été écrit par Lamothe Langon, mais "avec tant de précipitation et si peu de soin" que les éditeurs furent contraints d&#39;en assurer la révision par Amédée Pichot. La révision du style faite, Pichot ajouta quelques chapitres de son cru, ainsi que Charles Nodier. Enfin, la tâche de refondre les mémoires fut confiée à M. Hinard, Gainaut et Ferrier, avec toujours la révision du style par Pichot. L&#39;invention, ou le subterfuge d&#39;une narratrice "femme de qualité" permet à l&#39;auteur un portrait véritable et intime de la cour évoluant autour de Napoléon Bonaparte, et tout aussi bien de celle de Louis XVIII et de celle de la Restauration, l&#39;ensemble possède un réel accent de vérité et les critiques ne sont jamais frontales mais distillées dans la perception des événements par l&#39;héroïne. Le témoignage direct d&#39;une femme sur l&#39;histoire était en effet très en vogue, ainsi des Mémoires d&#39;une contemporaine parus en 1827 et 1828 qui eurent un grand succès. Femme de haute noblesse et dont le mentor a été Madame de Stael, notre héroïne est introduite à la cour de Bonaparte. La supercherie littéraire est parfaite au sens où l&#39;on suit chronologiquement l&#39;évolution du personnage à travers l&#39;histoire, mais au sein de la cour. Le lecteur suivra avec le plus grand intérêt cette autobiographie très romancée et qui peint sous des couleurs très vivantes la vie à la cour sous Napoléon Bonaparte, puis sous la Restauration et Louis XVIII, bien que la jeunesse de l&#39;héroïne ait été rédigée en dernier. On y croise avec le plus grand plaisir tous les acteurs de ces périodes, aussi bien les acteurs politiques qu&#39;artistiques (Girodet, Mercier, Lannes...). Il faut bien souligner qu&#39;il ne s&#39;agit nullement de mémoires historiques mais de la vie romanesque d&#39;une femme à la cour, on y retrouve davantage la littérature du XVIIIe (Prévost, Lesage, Marivaux) que les critiques pamphlétaires de Chateaubriand sur les mêmes époques. On distinguera cependant une nette différence entre les premiers mémoires sur Louis XVIII et l&#39;écriture des Mémoires sur le Consulat et l&#39;Empire, en effet les premiers sont davantage un commentaire des événements historiques alors que ceux sur le Consulat tiennent davantage de l&#39;autobiographie ; sans doute cette nouvelle manière fut-elle nécessaire pour ne pas répéter tout de qui avait déjà été écrit sur l&#39;Empire dans les précédents ouvrages. Lamothe Langon fut fait Baron d&#39;Empire et eut une carrière administrative sous Bonaparte, il perdit son emploi sous la Restauration et se consacra à l&#39;écriture pour gagner sa vie. Précieux exemplaire de l'ancienne impératrice Marie-Louise, relié à son chiffre. Provenance singulière que celle de Marie-Louise de Habsbourg-Lorraine (1791-1847) : duchesse de Parme depuis l'abdication de l'empereur Napoléon en 1815, elle constitua une riche bibliothèque, principalement française. Ses livres étaient pour l'essentiel reliés en demi-maroquin rouge avec son chiffre couronné doré sur les plats. Littérature, histoire des idées, économie et politique, histoire, sa bibliothèque témoigne d'un éclectisme et d'une ouverture peu ordinaires.

        The Housekeeper's Oracle; or, Art of Domestic Management: Containing a Complete System of Carving with Accuracy and Elegance; Hints relative to Dinner Parties; the Art of Managing Servants; and the Economist and Epicure's Calendar, shewing the seasons when all kinds of Meat, Fish, Poultry, Game, Vegetables and Fruits first arrive in the market - earliest time forced - when most plentiful - and when best and cheapest. To which is added a Variety of useful and Original Receipts.

      London: Whittaker, Treacher & Co, 1829. The delectable Arcana of Domestic Affairs. First, and only, edition, published posthumously. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Kitchiner, 21 figures to illustrate carving and one illustration of a jelly refiner in text. Pp. iv, 344. 8vo., contemporary calf, rebacked with the original gilt decorated spine laid down, booklabel of the Montefiore family on the front pastedown, a very good, handsome copy. Kitchiner's declared intention is to provide the means "that a young Lady may learn the delectable Arcana of Domestic Affairs...which will enable her to make the Cage of Matrimony as comfortable as the Net of Courtship was charming". The information in the excellent Epicures Calendar has endured with some particularly interesting insights into bread, cheese, bacon, fish, hams &c. Kitchiner (1775?-1827) was something of an eccentric. He was an Etonian who qualified as a doctor in Glasgow and therefore could not practice in England where he lived. He was very wealthy and gave marvellous banquets, of his own devising, at his home in Fitzroy Square. If, however, guests arrived even a few minutes late, they were denied entrance. He introduced the world to his culinary prowess in 'The Cook's Oracle' of 1817, many of the dishes in which he had created and tested himself. 'The Housekeeper's Oracle' was intended to be a companion volume. Unfortunately Kitchiner died before it was published and the cause was taken up by his son who had fallen out with his father but was very keen to cash in on his fame.

      Zus. 48 S., 8 bis 4. Nach Studien am Collegio Capizzi in Bronte und an den Priesterseminaren von Monreale und Neapel kam De Luca 1829 nach Rom, wo er von 1833 bis 1836 Privatsekretär des Kardinals Thomas Weld war. Er wurde am 10. Februar 1839 im Alter von 33 Jahren in Rom zum Priester geweiht. Am 24. November 1845 wurde er zum Bischof von Aversa ernannt und zwei Monate später zum Bischof geweiht. Am 22. Dezember 1853 wurde er als Titularerzbischof von Tarsus eingesetzt. Pius IX. bestellte ihn am 24. Dezember 1853 zum Päpstlichen Nuntius in München und am 9. September 1856 wurde er Apostolischer Nuntius am Kaiserhof in Wien. Am 16. März 1863 im Alter von 57 Jahren wurde De Luca zum Kardinalpriester von Santi Quattro Coronati ernannt. Von 1864 bis 1878 war er Präfekt der Indexkongregation. Von 1873 bis 1874 war er Kämmerer des Kardinalskollegiums. 1878 wurde er zum Kardinalbischof von Palestrina und zum Vizekanzler der Heiligen Römischen Kirche ernannt und erhielt den titulus San Lorenzo in Damaso in commendam. Er hat am Ersten Vatikanischen Konzil und am Konklave zur Wahl Leos XIII. teilgenommen. De Luca starb 1883 im Alter von 78 Jahren in Rom (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

        History of the Afghans:: Translated from the Persian of Neamat Ullah, by Bernhard Dorn, Professor of Oriental Literature in the Imperial Russian University of Kharkov. Part I.

      Published by the Oriental Translation Fund., London Oriental Translation Committee 1829 - Neamat Ullah, Historiographer at the Court of Jehangir 1609-11, wrote a history of the Afghans from their beginnings to the sixteenth century. Dorn's translation was from a manuscript written in 1718 belonging to the Royal Asiatic Society. This first part contains the translation in full; the second part, not present here, included a Pushtoo Grammar and Vocabulary as well as notes on the Afghans from other sources, but was issued seven years later. The Royal Society of Edinburgh sold its books at auction in the early 1980's. Most, like this, were unread. A near fine large paper copy in the original cloth. First edition Folio, pp.xv, 184. From the Library of the Royal Society of Edinburgh with their discreet stamp on title page.

Cuvier, secrétaire perpétuel de l'institut, et professeur d'anatomie comparée au Muséum d'Histoire naturelle; dessinée d'après nature par Huet, dessinateur du Muséum et professeur de dessin pour la zoologie audit Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle de paris, et gravée par J. B. Huet jeune; accompagnée d'un texte descriptif et d'un tableau des ordres, des familles, et de caractères appartenant à chacune d'elles.

      Paris, Blance Ainé, 1829. 4to (30.0 x 22.6 cm). 60 pp., 55 plates. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards. Spine rich gilt with a floral pattern, and gilt title. Marbled endpapers. Speckled edges.l A rare, illustrated description of the mammals in the Muséum national d'Histoire naturelle in Paris. This is the second edition (first: 1808, with only 45 plates). The first, unnumbered plate is a fine and artistically arranged comparative overview of the principal mammalian groups. It is not clear which Huet is meant by "Huet" in the title; it could be either Nicolas le jeune (brother of Jean-Baptiste le jeune), or their father, Jean-Baptiste le vieux, neither of whom we could associate with the Muséum in Paris. A very good copy, some scattered foxing towards the end. Spine rebacked. Otherwise very nice, with wide margins. Nissen ZBI, 2046; Wood (this edition), p. 393.

        The Sorrows of Rosalie. A Tale. With other Poems ?

      John Ebers and Co., London 1829 - First edition of the first published work by successful poet Caroline Norton (1808-1877).Norton had a significant literary pedigree; her mother was the novelist Caroline Henrietta Callender (1779-1851), and her paternal grandparents were the dramatist Richard Brinsley Sheridan and his first wife, the celebrated singer Elizabeth Linley. In 1827 Norton made what would prove to be an unhappy marriage to George Norton M.P., and 'disliking and disliked by his family, threw herself into literary society' (ODNB).The Sorrows of Rosalie was Norton's first published work. Even by the accepted standards of cautionary tales, the eponymous heroine suffers particular hardship. Rosalie is persuaded by her lover to abandon her aged father, but the lover - a villain - deserts her soon after. With illegitimate child in tow she seeks her betrayer in London, but is forced to abandon the search and returns to her father's house, only to find him dead. Maddened by grief and the needs of her starving child, Rosalie is driven to theft, whereupon she is imprisoned and, although she is ultimately acquitted, her child dies in prison. After much despair, she finds refuge in a remote part of the country where she devotes the remainder of her life to quiet contemplation. The work was widely reviewed; the Literary Gazette wrote, 'there is nothing very intricate in the story of the Sorrows of Rosalie' yet 'these slender materials have been worked into a tale of intense and Crabbe-like pathos'. The Morning Post asserted that 'simple, unaffected, and beautiful effusion will be perused and re-perused with still encreasing [sic] pleasure'. The New Monthly Magazine addressed the author's gender: 'The present little work is attributed to the pen of a lady. Were it not for the fair, we should have but little new poetry now-a-days. Mrs. Hemans, Miss Landon, Mrs. Howitt, Miss Browne, and others of the beau sex, have all a woman's constancy for the Muse, and do not desert the worship because it does not happen, just at present, to be the ton'.Identifying the edition of The Sorrows of Rosalie is complicated. The British Library has two editions; the present imprint and one in a different state with alternative pagination, as well as a 'fourth edition', which appeared in the same year as the first. Jackson recognises that the presence of the fourth suggests the presence of second and third states, but these have not been identified. 12mo (174 x 100 mm), pp. xii, [2], 134; edges a little browned but a good copy, untrimmed in contemporary blue paper backed boards, remains of printed paper label to spine; upper joint cracked but holding; book labels of Simon Nowell-Smith and Judith Adams Nowell-Smith. [Jackson 548; Jackson, Women p. 243 (Norton 1 (a)).] [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
