        The Autobiography, or Narrative of a Soldier.

Contemporary half calf, gilt banded spine, dark red morocco label, marbled sides, red speckled edges. Contemporary armorial bookplate of Alexander Gordon (of Auchlunies), uncle to Sir Alexander Gordon, Wellington's chief ADC. A few light scrapes to binding, a touch of foxing but a very good copy with the half-title and the final leaf (containing a verse appeal and errata). First edition of this extremely uncommon Peninsula memoir, Copac citing just three locations in British and Irish institutional libraries (Scotland, Glasgow, Liverpool), OCLC adding only National Library of Ireland and New York Public Library. William Brown (b. 1788) had worked in a woollen milll before enlisting and served with the 45th (the Nottinghamshires), a regiment that fought in every major action of the Peninsular War, winning the nickname "Old Stubborns" at Talavera. He had obviously fallen on hard times and had a wife and four daughters to support, as the verse appeal at the end of the book makes clear. His book is cited several times by Gavin Daly in The British Soldier in the Peninsular War: Encounters with Spain and Portugal, 1808-1814, 2013). "Busaco, Ciudad Rodrigo et Badajoz (saisissante description de l'assaut et du pillage), Salamanque (la reconduite par la cavalerie française), la retraite de Burgos, la bataille de Vitoria et le pillage des bagages français.

Pradeland, de las que un frontispico con retrato ecuestre de Juan Segundo y 5 plegadas con diseños de embocaduras.- // Impreso en papel de alto gramaje, conserva cubiertas impresas originales. Intonso y sin desbarbar; ligero rastro de humedad en las láminas, especialmente en la quinta.- // Apenas se sabe nada de quién fue el intendente Juan Segundo. Las noticias sobre este liberal gaditano comienzan con su emigración forzosa a Francia en 1822, donde permaneció hasta regresar a España para desempeñar el puesto de intendente de la provincia de Madrid en 1833, de la de Orense en 1840, de donde pasaría a la de Huelva y en 1843 a la de Granada. Durante su paso por Madrid se incorporó a la Sociedad económica matritense, donde leyó una memoria En 1844 sería uno de los fundadores de la sociedad para la mejora de la cría caballar, publicando en 1847, en el madrileño Establecimiento Tipográfico Literario Universal La Ilustracion, un Proyecto para el fomento y mejora de la cria caballar de España, en una "impresión de lujo, papel glaseado en 8º francés grande", que era una reelaboración de la Memoria que leyó ante la Sociedad económica matritense en 1836. Apasionado de los caballos y de su monta, concibió que los bocados que se empleaban se habían convertido prácticamente en objetos ornamentales que dañaban a las monturas. Convencido de ese error, se aplicó en estudiar de qué modo las embocaduras podían a un mismo tiempo dañar menos a los animales y contribuir mejor al control de su monta. Analizó la anatomía externa e interna de los caballos hasta concebir qué requisitos tenían que reunir los bocados para acomodarse sin daño a la configuración interna de su boca y recibir y ayudar a transmitir mejor las instrucciones del jinete con las bridas. Cuando consiguió trasladar sus averiguaciones científicas al diseño de nuevos bocados, fue dándolos a conocer a cuantos expertos, caballerizos, hipólogos, profesores de equitación, picaderos y caballerías tuvo acceso y, a medida que fue recibiendo halagos y parabienes, fue patentándolos y obteniendo los brevets correspondientes en Francia, Inglaterra, Holanda y Alemania. Esta presentación la realizó valiéndose de un manuscrito en francés que era el que iba enviando para su estudio a unos y otros entre 1827 y 1829. En Inglaterra, incluso, consiguió que sus prototipos fuesen examinados por el propio rey Jorge quien indicó que el estudio debería publicarse y que estaría encantado de que la obra le fuese dedicada. En 1829 la editó en francés (1829), con el suficiente éxito como para verse traducida de inmediato al alemán (1829)(1) y al inglés (1832)(2). Todavía en 1871 en el británico The Loriner se elogiaba el tratado de Segundo como el mejor de los aparecidos en el siglo, precisamente por su desarrollo a partir de premisas científicas y de la realidad anatómica de los caballos. El autor comprometió la aparición de la obra en cinco entregas que comenzarían el 15 de diciembre de 1850. Parece que en ese momento la obra no se completó ya que en 1853 seguían buscándose suscriptores (cfr "El Ancora", 19-3-1853, circular recomendando su compra), pero no llegó a ver la luz hasta 1855 en Madrid, veinticinco años después de su publicación en francés, en la imprenta a cargo de Miguel González, que la reeditó en 1857 con correcciones, y volvió a reimprimir en 1858, acompañándola de un breve tratado de equitación. // Refs.: Hutz, solo ed. ger, p. 111 y ed.

La période révolutionnaire fut un vrai cauchemar pour cet aristocrate messin. A son arrivée au pouvoir Bonaparte n'oublia pas ses fonctions d'autrefois; il lui confia alors la mission de négocier la vente de la Louisiane avec les autorités américaines. (cf. DBF, V, p. 246 et suiv.). Quelques notes manuscrites au crayon dans les marges. Coins usés, reliure frottée, qqs rousseurs [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The turf expositor; containing the origin of horse racing, breeding for the turf, training, trainers, jockeys; cocktails, and the system of cocktail racing illustrated; the turf and its abuses; the science of betting money, so as always to come off a winner, elucidated by a variety of examples; the rules and laws of horse racing; and every other information connected with the operations of the turf.

      1829 - 8vo., contemporary linen backed boards with paper spine label. pp. x, 180 + [12] adverts (dated Nov 1929). Covers rubbed, slight bumping to corners, and paper spine label a little chipped, some browning and spotting, a good copy of a scarce item. First edition. A most informative volume on all aspects of horse racing, including betting. The author is forthright in his opinions. In his thumbnail descriptions of race tracks he comments on Epsom racecourse "Epsom Course can be properly called neither circular, oval, or triangular. It is altogether one of the worst courses in England". Talking about jockeys he comments "The third or Dirty class are remarkable for their slovenly, dirty and unworkmanlike appearance;- it is no uncommon occurrence to see these wretched apologies for Jockeys ride in dirty jackets, dark greasy corduroys, and gaiters of similar complexion". In his chapters on betting the author goes into some depth on the multiplication and division of vulgar fractions. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      (Augsburg), 4. April 1829. - Einblattdruck mit typographischem Text im Rahmen. Blattgr.: 38 x 23 cm. Der Zauberer Louis von Linsky (geb. 1801 in Warschau) zieht hier alle Register: Er zeigt "die seltene Reparatur zerschlagener Uhren", "die magischen Citronen", "die verzauberten Kanarienvögel", "die magnetische Pistole, eine der stärksten Escamotagen", usw.

        SPECIMENS OF AMERICAN POETRY, WITH CRITICAL AND BIOGRAPHICAL NOTICES .

      Boston: S. G. Goodrich and Co., 1829 - 12mo, three volumes: pp. [i-iii] iv-ix [x-xi] xi-xv [xvi] xvii-xlviii [1] 2-353 [354: blank]; [i-iii] iv-x [1] 2-408; [i-iii] iv-x [1] 2-406, nineteenth-century three-quarter black pebbled morocco and marbled boards, spines and sides tooled in gold, t.e.g., other edges untrimmed. First edition. The first comprehensive anthology of American poetry. It includes poems by 189 American poets, beginning with Cotton Mather and ending with John Greenleaf Whittier. At the end of the third volume is a 28-page "Catalogue of American Poetry" which lists in chronological order "all the poetical works of American origin which have come under notice in the course of this undertaking." "The work was projected by [Samuel Griswold] Goodrich and originally undertaken by a Boston journalist, Frederic S. Hill, and was conceived as a refutation of Sydney Smith and other calumniators of American genius. To make the refutation sufficiently crushing, Kettell went into highways and hedges in search of eligible bards with the result that his collection throws a brilliant light on the state of literary culture in the period covered. The reviewers [e.g. S. A. Eliot, NORTH AMERICAN REVIEW, October 1829] fell foul of its indiscriminate inclusiveness and several editorial shortcomings; Goodrich, in consequence, lost $1,5000 on the venture and felt that insult was added to injury when he discovered that SPECIMENS were commonly referred to as 'Goodrich's Kettle of Poetry.'" - DAB Harris Collection, p. 137.

        Itinéraire Pittoresque du Fleuve Hudson et des parties latérales de l'Amérique du Nord

      Henri Gaugain et Cie, Paris 1829 - (text: 2 vols., quarto, 14 x 10 1/2 inches; atlas: folio, 12 5/16 x 18 5/8 inches). Text: half-titles, uncut. Atlas: pictorial lithographed upper wrapper bound as a title page, by Georges after Smith, 54 fine uncoloured lithographed views after Milbert by Deroy, V. Adam, Villeneuve, and others, all the plates on india paper mounted, 1 hand-coloured double-page lithographed map after H. Toquet. Expertly bound to style in half calf and period marbled paper covered boards, flat spines lettered and decorated in gilt, marbled endpapers Provenance: unidentified French armorial booklabel in the upper left corner of the text volumes; Armida Maria-Theresa and Haris Dunsombe Colt (booklabel) First edition of an outstanding series of American views: a fine set on India Paper and including an uncut large paper set of the text volumes. "Milbert sailed from Havre on the 1st of September, 1815, and arrived in New York on the 20th of the following October. He settled in New York, where his first work was the making of several drawings of the mechanism of steamboats. He soon, however, turned to portrait-painting, and taught drawing. Milbert was later attached to the commission in charge of the leveling preparatory to the establishment of the Champlain Canal. In this connection he made a journey in one of the large steamers plying upon the Hudson. It was on this voyage that he collected much of the material for his Itinéraire Pittoresque. A few years after his arrival in New York he was charged by M. Hyde de Neuville, the French Minister, with the preparation of certain collections of natural history specimens, destined for the King's Garden in Paris. In his report on this collection, which is printed in full in his Itinéraire Pittoresque , he styles himself 'Voyageur, Naturaliste du Gouvernement et Correspondant du Museum d'Histoire Naturelle au Jardin du Roi.' It was through Milbert's efforts that the first living specimen of the American buffalo was introduced into France. On pages 33-6 of the first volume of text is given a very interesting description of the architecture and interior arrangement of the private houses of New York at this period" (Stokes Iconography of New York ) Most of the plates depict scenes in New York State, including New York City, West Point, Albany, Troy, Saratoga Springs and Niagara Falls. This set includes the rare 54th plate that is often lacking, as well as the fine coloured folding map of the northeastern United States. The area covered goes west to Ohio and the Great Lakes, and south to Virginia, with a significant portion of Canada, also included is an inset of the Hudson River region. Fine views are included as well of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia. "As an artist, Milbert loved to paint American landscapes, particularly those which showed the Hudson, 'King of Rivers,' flowing majestically through the mountains . boundless curiosity, plus a contagious enthusiasm and a delightful sense of humor, make the journal as lively a document today as when it was penned a hundred and forty years ago. The pictures of what he saw, as of the time he drew them, constitute a unique and valuable record" (Sherman).

        Dressing for the house on the March 1829

      Thomas McLean, 26 Haymarket, London, England 1829 - Hand colored entching. Satirical print in acid free Mylar envelope. See British Museum number 1868,0808.8927. Title: Dressing for the house on the March 1829. John Singleton Copley, 1st Baron Lyndhurst stands in his dressing room in his shirt-sleeves, black breeches, black waistcoat and stockings and wearing his Chancellor's wig). He puts one hand into the arm-hole of a old coat which a footman in livery holds out, saying, "Your Lordship's Coat is become very threadbare for you know you turned it only last year - & it has been turned before that: so I much doubt if it will bear turning any more - Can't you afford to buy a new one now her Ladyship earns her own Expenses? - Doodle pays all her bills and gives her every thing she can wish for.' Lyndhurst: 'Alas! she'll get no more out of Doodle! he has quite kicked her off - She is just now gone to Cumberland to try after a service there which perhaps may enable me to keep still sitting on Wool, if I can but turn this Coat once more & look decent.' On a settee (right) are the mace, Purse of the Great Seal, and the Chancellor's gown. The satirist is pointing out that Lyndhurst is an opportunist and political turncoat and that, further, he is quite comfortable with the knowledge that his wife is having sexual liaisons with other men. He manged to remain Chancellor under Canning, Goderich and Wellington, which was quite a feat considering their different views and positions. His wife was no better. She granted her favors to the ultra rich Lord Dudley and then to the Duke of Cumberland, while sticking to her husband and partner and helping him advance his political career. March 24 1829. Print made by: William Heath. Published by: Thomas McLean. Dimensions: Height: 275 mm. Width: 370 mm. Lettered with title, artist's signature [Paul Pry], text within image and publication line: "Pub March 24 1829 by T. McLean 26 Haymarket." Description and comment from M. Dorothy George, 'Catalogue of Political and Personal Satires in the British Museum', XI, 1954). Lyndhurst, reputed a careerist and previously a 'Protestant', was Chancellor under Canning, Goderich, and Wellington. 'Doodle' is Lord Dudley, see 'Journals of H. E. Fox', p. 235 ; Creevey's 'Life and Times', ed. Gore, pp. 252, 363 ; Greville writes (1830) of Lady Lyndhurst: "Detesting her husband as a husband she sticks to him closely as a partner and labours for his aggrandisement and interests with abundant zeal and success."

        The [Picture] Alphabet [title on lid].

      - London: Edward Wallis, Skinner Street, [c. 1829]. 30 circular wooden playing discs (63 mm. diameter), 24 with printed letters on one face; the obverse with 24 hand-coloured lithographic images and six remaining discs with letters (alphabets and sections of the alphabet) on both faces; five discs with splits, one repaired, due to tension of the wood when drying out, a few minor abrasures and a little spotted; housed in the original treen cylinder (80mm diam. 180mm h.) in two sections unscrewing in the middle surmounted by a screw lid with printed label on yellow within circular bands of black and red lines; lid rubbed; bottom inscribed in ink A New Years Gift for little Eliza Bruce. from her Aunt Emily. January 1st 1830, one word from label cut out and replaced with the word Aunty in direct ink lettering on wood. A rare alphabet game with unusually large pictorial and alphabetic disks. Issued by one of the leading Regency game manufacturers, the delightful images range from Ark, Boy, Cow to Xury (the slave Robinson Crusoe helped to escape), Yew and Zebra. What had started as a single-sheet ABC primer in the 16th century became an educational toy in the late 18th. 'The underlying concept was the use of simple pictures to reinforce the phonic impact of initial letters. As with the ABC primer, the idea migrated from the classroom to the nursery and the hearth. It became recognised as an "improving" toy' (Rickards, The Encyclopaedia of Ephemera, p. 2). Usually these games are not dated; however, we can for once give this example a rough date from the presentation inscription.

        The Life of Philip Melancthon. Prepared for the American Sunday School Union

      Philadelphia: American Sunday School Union, (1829) - 12mo, original black quarter sheep, marbled paper sides, gilt lettering. ? An anonymous life of scholar and theologian Philipp Melancthon (1497-1560), issued as one of the many publications of the American Sunday School Union. On the front paste-down in a contemporary hand is written "Hermitage S. School / No 205 / Built & Endowed / by / Gen. Jackson." On the front free endpaper in apparently the same hand is the following notation: "This book was / bought & given by Gen. / And: Jackson to / the S. S. endowed & / built by him at his / plantation 11 miles / from Nashville / Tenn / F. Webber / Nashville, Tenn / June 22/62." ? In 1823 Andrew Jackson donated the property and funds for the building of a church near his middle Tennessee plantation, The Hermitage, which was at first called the Ephesus Church, but was later changed to the Hermitage Church in Jackson's honor. The Hermitage Church thrived, as did the Hermitage Plantation, until after Jackson's death when his son, Andrew, Jr., began selling off Hermitage property and buildings to pay for unsuccessful business ventures. By 1858 the Jacksons had abandoned the Hermitage, and during the Civil War services at the Hermitage Church ceased all together. ? Mr. Webber's statement that this book was bought and personally given by Andrew Jackson to the Hermitage Church Sunday School cannot be authenticated, but Webber did own other similar American Sunday School Union imprints from the Hermitage Sunday School library (we had one ten years ago), in which he wrote almost identical notations and dated June 22, 1862. There is little doubt that this book is a rare survival from the Sunday School on Jackson's famous plantation. On the title-page Webber has inscribed the book to his daughter, "Rachel E. Webber / from / Her Father." Binding rubbed; text somewhat browned; lacking the final blank and free endpaper; a good, sound copy. Not found in American Imprints, but OCLC records eight copies [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Novum testamentum polyglottum Bagsterianum.

      Londini: Samuelis Bagster 4to (29 cm, 11.4"). 75, [3] pp., 188 cols. in 4, 22 cols., 188 cols. in 4, [8] pp., 568 cols.. 1829 First edition of Bagster's impressive New Testament, "the most inclusive since the London Polyglot" according to Darlow and Moule. This hefty volume offers the text in Greek, Latin, Portuguese, and English on facing pages, followed by French, Italian, Spanish and German likewise, and then by Syriac in a separate section printed from right to left. This was the => first published portion of the Biblia Polyglotta, Bagster's great accomplishment, published from 1829 through 1831; the Hebrew text here is W. Greenfield's, the Greek is the Textus Receptus, the Latin is the Sixtine–Clementine, the English is the King James, the German (printed in blackletter) is Luther's, the French is Ostervald's, the Italian is Diodati's, the Spanish is Scio's, and the Syriac N.T. is from the Vienne, 1555 edition. Samuel Lee wrote the Prolegomena, which in this particular example are bound in after the (incorrectly placed) first eight pages of the French/Italian/Spanish/German section. Bagster first attempted to publish a part of his massive feat in 1822, but virtually all of that edition (in four languages only) was destroyed in a warehouse fire. Publisher's dark green ribbed cloth, covers framed in blind with large, elegant blind-stamped floriate devices in the corners; spine with gilt-stamped title and list of languages, this rebacked preserving the majority of the original spine and lettering, corners refurbished. Lower page edges (closed), title-page, and final page each with an old institutional rubber-stamp, title-page and one sectional title pressure-stamped, first preface page with inked numeral in lower margin, no other markings. Two leaves each with short tear from upper inner margin, not touching text; a scattering of very light spots in first and final sections, central portion with more consistent but still extremely faint spotting in lower margins; overall a strong, clean, attractive volume.

        The [Picture] Alphabet [title on lid].

      London: Edward Wallis, Skinner Street, [c. 1829]. 30 circular wooden playing discs (63 mm. diameter), 24 with printed letters on one face; the obverse with 24 hand-coloured lithographic images and six remaining discs with letters (alphabets and sections of the alphabet) on both faces; five discs with splits, one repaired, due to tension of the wood when drying out, a few minor abrasures and a little spotted; housed in the original treen cylinder (80mm diam. 180mm h.) in two sections unscrewing in the middle surmounted by a screw lid with printed label on yellow within circular bands of black and red lines; lid rubbed; bottom inscribed in ink A New Years Gift for little Eliza Bruce. from her Aunt Emily. January 1st 1830, one word from label cut out and replaced with the word Aunty in direct ink lettering on wood. A rare alphabet game with unusually large pictorial and alphabetic disks. Issued by one of the leading Regency game manufacturers, the delightful images range from Ark, Boy, Cow to Xury (the slave Robinson Crusoe helped to escape), Yew and Zebra. What had started as a single-sheet ABC primer in the 16th century became an educational toy in the late 18th. ‘The underlying concept was the use of simple pictures to reinforce the phonic impact of initial letters. As with the ABC primer, the idea migrated from the classroom to the nursery and the hearth. It became recognised as an “improving” toy’ (Rickards, The Encyclopaedia of Ephemera, p. 2). Usually these games are not dated; however, we can for once give this example a rough date from the presentation inscription.
