        The Masque of Anarchy. A Poem. Now first published, with a preface by Leigh Hunt.

      London: Edward Moxon, 1832 - Small octavo. Original boards, spine label largely intact. Housed in brown morocco pull-off case. Spine discreetly restored but both spine and title label largely preserved and intact, boards a little dust-soiled and marked with light rubbing to extremities, faint spotting to endpapers, ownership inscription torn from top fore-corner of front free endpaper, hinges completely sound and on the whole internally clean. An excellent copy. First edition, in exceptional condition in the original boards, with the spine and title label largely preserved. The passing of the 1832 Reform Act emboldened Leigh Hunt to allow at last the publication of Shelley's incendiary poetic reaction to the Peterloo Massacre of 1819: "Rise like lions after slumber / In unvanquishable number! / Shake your chains to earth, like dew / Which in sleep had fall'n on you: / Ye are many – they are few". The publisher Moxon, Charles Lamb's son-in-law, would later stand trial for blasphemous libel for publishing a relatively unexpurgated edition of Queen Mab. Granniss, 80; Wise, p. 71.

In very good condition with some light wear to the extremities and spine label, name to the title page. Scarce in the original cloth. Babbage's On the Economy of Machinery and Manufacturers was the first book on operations research, discussing topics like the regulation of power, control of raw materials, division of labor, times studies, the advantage of size in manufacturing, inventory control, and duration and replacement of machinery. On pages 166 and 167 Babbage analyzed the production of his book as an example of the cost of each step in a particular production process. The work was Babbage's most complete and professional piece of writing, and the only one of his books that went through four editions in his lifetime" (OOC). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [Ornithology] A history of British birds by Thomas Bewick

      Newcastle: printed by Charles Henry Cook, for R. E. Bewick: sold by him, Longman and Co., London; and all booksellers, 1832. Full Calf. Fine. 8vo: xl,386; xviii,424pp. Collated and complete in two volumes: I. containing the history and description of land birds; II. containing the history and description of water birds. Illustrated throughout with engravings on wood by Thomas Bewick. Uniformly bound in contemporary full polished calf, covers framed in double gilt fillets and leaf roll in blind, spines in five compartments with two black morocco lettering pieces gilt; end papers and edges marbled. Provenance: old book plates on front paste down and front fly leaf of both volumes. A superb set, bindings tight and secure, contents very fresh and bright without a trace of foxing or browning, rich impressions of the numerous woodcuts. Not in Roscoe. OCLC Number: 12197896. According to ODNB, more than 600 distinct woodblocks were engraved for this two-volume work by the time the last of eight editions was published during Bewick's lifetime. "Apart from the excellence of the principal figures, the numerous tailpiece vignettes that enlivened every spare space in the book came in for special notice. . . . [Their] narrative content . . . is often ironic and displays a mordant view of the world and human folly . . . The gritty reality of the lives of the crippled old soldiers, road menders, blind beggars, and rain-soaked packmen who inhabit Bewick's landscapes is at odds with the sentimental view of those who now reproduce his work on pots and tea towels. . . Any comparison of Bewick's work with that of his predecessors makes clear how original it appeared at the time. Not only was there truth in outline and animated posture, but the habitat was beautifully realized."

        On political economy; in connexion with the moral state and moral prospects of society.

      Glasgow: printed for William Collins;. 1832 - 8vo., viii + 566pp., contemporary polished calf, the sides embossed in blind, spine gilt with raised bands and label, all edges gilt. A fine presentation copy inscribed in ink in the author's hand ('To the Revd Dr Euston[?] with Dr. Chalmers best regards')> First edition. Kress C.3079. Goldsmiths 27260. Williams I, p.198. McCulloch p.19. Hollander 2991. Einaudi (1012) has only the 2nd edition. In this treatise, in which Chalmers follows Adam Smith and Malthus rather than Ricardo, the aim is not to develop a new treatise of political economy but through existing doctrines secure the moral, and thereby economic, elevation of society. (His practical applications amongst the poor of Glasgow worked successfully for over twenty years). He was acknowledged by contemporaries: McCulloch, the disciple of Ricardo, criticised him: Malthus, with whom he pursued a somewhat one-sided correspondence, acknowledged the pleasure and instruction of his writings. Schumpeter considered this work 'a book of considerable importance, but not easy to appraise. It represents a curious mixture of sound insights and technical shortcomings.' It is worth observing that Chalmers begins his Preface with a challenging definition of political economy, and why churchmen should be both interested and involved. 'There is one general application', he writes, 'that might be made of the whole subject, and which gives it, in our judgment, its principal claim on the earnest and respectful attention of a Christian philanthropist. Political economy aims at the diffusion of sufficiency and comfort throughout the mass of the population, by a multiplication or enlargement of the outward means and materials of human enjoyment. Now, we hold it to be demonstrable, on its own principles, that, vary its devices and expedients as it may, this is an object which it never can secure, apart from a virtuous and educated peasantry'.

        Emigration or a flight of fair game...

      London: A. Ducote's Lithog.y 70 St. Martins Lane Published by Thos. McLean, 26 Haymarket, June 17th, 1832. Hand-coloured lithograph 23.6 cm x 38.2 cm (image). A very rare and desirable caricature. Since the First Fleet, the paucity of males to females meant that if the Colony was to become more than a penal settlement, incentives had to be set in place to attract the migration of women. This striking and beautiful caricature is printed hot on the heels of the British Government subsidising the migration of free settlers (using the revenue it had raised from the sale of land in Australia): biased heavily in favour of single women. Despite the lure of free passage, the recruitment of female emigrants proved difficult--not least because single women suffered the stereotype of being prostitutes. This strikingly attractive print shows the men of Van Diemen's Land eagerly awaiting the arrival of the young women ("I sees a prime 'un" gallantly opines one man), while the women left behind outside the Workhouses (and penitentiaries) of England are wishing that they too were eligible: "Varmint" jealously cries one female to the butterfly retinue.Alfred Ducote worked as a lithographer in London between 1834 and 1841. His lithograph is based on an original work by John Doyle (1797-1868). This wonderful image addresses itself both to English and Australian audiences and appeared towards the end of a vibrant tradition of printed social and political satire.Hordern House has never handled another copy of this work and this example is differentiated from the four other known examples (at the NLA, National Gallery of Australia, the Allport Library and SLNSW) "Emigration" lacks the hyphen.

        Robin Hood: a Collection of all the Ancient Poems, Songs, and Ballads, now extant relative to that celebrated English Outlaw. To which are prefixed Historical Anecdotes of his Life

      London: William Pickering, 1832. First Edition thus. Cloth. Fine. First Pickering Edition (second edition overall; first published 1795), complete in two volumes. 8vo: viii, [2], [v]-cxxxv, [1],148; vi,261,[1]pp, with numerous woodcut illustrations (each tale with head- and tail-piece) by John and Thomas Bewick. Original brown ribbed cloth, covers decorated in blind with elaborate arabesques; spines ruled in blind and lettered in gilt, pale lemon end papers. Beautifully rebacked with original cloth spines laid down, else a Fine set, bindings firm and gilt bright, pages pristine (and largely unopened) without a trace of foxing, illustrations crisp. Tattersfield 2.543B. Menzies 1704. Lowndes 2098. Not in Roscoe. Originally published by Ritson,"who continued from time to time to make additions to his own copy, from which the present edition has been carefully printed. The original engravings, by the celebrated Bewick, have again been used; and from the improved art of wood-cut-printing, will be found superior in clearness and beauty to the first impression." (from the Advertisement). The editor of this edition, according to Lowndes, was Ritson's nephew, who added in the appendix the Tale of Robin Hood and the Monk, of which Ritson was unaware. Lowndes also concurs that the "woodcuts are better struck off and clearer." Joseph Ritson was an English antiquarian notorious for vicious and blistering criticisms of his literary contemporaries, including Thomas Warton (History of English Poetry) and, most famously, Samuel Johnson (the edition of Shakespeare produced with George Steevens in 1783 particularly irked Ritson). But the work upon which Ritson's fame rests—"his single greatest achievement"— is this exhaustive Robin Hood. "For many years he had attempted to collect all the ‘historical or poetical remains’ concerning Robin Hood, and his research was so thorough that only a handful of ‘remains’ of any significance have subsequently been discovered."

        American Cuckoo - Coccyzus americanus

      London 1832 - This splendid hand-colored, folio size lithograph from John Gould's (1804-1881) monumental work "Birds of Europe" is in excellent condition, measures 14 ½” x 21 ½” and magnificently displays the author's scientific skill and attention to detail. John Gould was without question the most prolific natural history artist of the nineteenth century. He worked during a period of intense fascination with discoveries in natural history, especially regarding knowledge of the wildlife of exotic lands. Gould shared the romantic enthusiasm of his time for such subjects, as well as the popular impulse to catalog exotic wildlife. He combined his passion for natural history with outstanding scientific, artistic, and entrepreneurial talents. Drawing on these abilities, he embarked on a series of projects that would eventually make him the leading publisher of ornithological illustrations in Victorian Britain. Gould’s unparalleled career spanned five decades, and he produced a monumental series of books of birds throughout the world. Gould planned the Birds of Europe in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. In his preface he stated his mission: “the Birds of Europe, in which we are, or ought to be, most interested, have not received that degree of attention which they naturally demand. The present work has been undertaken to supply that deficiency.” Gould portrayed birds native to Europe in a manner that had only been thought appropriate for the colorful species of distant places. In this way he managed to draw much popular interest back to native birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species. Rich, vibrant color is an important attribute of the best 19th Century prints. Many prints by John Gould found on the market today have modern color that affects both the appearance and the value of these great works. John Gould died in 1881 still actively illustrating and producing fine bird books. His stock of unsold copies, unbound text and plates in various states, lithographic stones, drawings and paintings, amounted to nearly three tons. Many of the uncolored pulls from his monumental "Birds of Europe" have been recolored in the last thirty years, and these are often found on the market. Fortunately, the difference between original and modern color can be discerned by looking carefully at the print. When modern color is applied to 180 year old paper, the application is inconsistent; the cellulose of the aged paper has begun to breakdown and can no longer evenly absorb the watercolors, resulting in a splotchy uneven appearance All of the Gould bird prints in Arader Galleries' inventory have exquisite original color. The vastly superior quality of original color can be clearly differentiated from new color by its smooth and even appearance. The inks have noticeably deeper, richer tones. The difference can also be seen in the lovely surface "sheen" that results from the application of gum arabic when the lithograph was first pulled. The hand coloring of engravings and lithographs reached its zenith in the 19th Century. Works that still display their original color are more rewarding to view, and will better hold their value in the years to come.

        Emigration or a flight of fair game..

      London: A. Ducote's Lithog.y 70 St. Martins Lane Published by Thos. McLean, 26 Haymarket, 1832. Hand-coloured lithograph 23.6 cm x 38.2 cm (image). A very rare and desirable caricature. Since the First Fleet, the paucity of males to females meant that if the Colony was to become more than a penal settlement, incentives had to be set in place to attract the migration of women. This striking and beautiful caricature is printed hot on the heels of the British Government subsidising the migration of free settlers (using the revenue it had raised from the sale of land in Australia): biased heavily in favour of single women. Despite the lure of free passage, the recruitment of female emigrants proved difficult--not least because single women suffered the stereotype of being prostitutes. This strikingly attractive print shows the men of Van Diemen's Land eagerly awaiting the arrival of the young women ("I sees a prime 'un" gallantly opines one man), while the women left behind outside the Workhouses (and penitentiaries) of England are wishing that they too were eligible: "Varmint" jealously cries one female to the butterfly retinue.Alfred Ducote worked as a lithographer in London between 1834 and 1841. His lithograph is based on an original work by John Doyle (1797-1868). This wonderful image addresses itself both to English and Australian audiences and appeared towards the end of a vibrant tradition of printed social and political satire.Hordern House has never handled another copy of this work and this example is differentiated from the four other known examples (at the NLA, National Gallery of Australia, the Allport Library and SLNSW) "Emigration" lacks the hyphen.

      London, Henry Colburn, Great Marlborough Street, 1840, 1832. THIRD PRINTING 1840 WITH PASTED IN SIGNATURE OF CHARLES DARWIN, SEE BELOW FOR DETAILS, 8vo, approximately 225 x 130 mm, 9 x 5½ inches, 1 original folding map of 2, on the Keeling Islands, laid down on paper, a facsimile of the missing map loosely laid in at rear, 4 text illustrations, pages: title page, (lacks prelims i-vi, (i-iv) cancels, (v-vi), discarded, see Freeman page 34), [vii]- xiv, Preface and Contents, [1]-630 last page blank, followed by Index to Mr Darwin's Journal, 609-615, no half-title, rebound in modern paper boards, printed label to spine, new endpapers, marbled edges. Map has slight damage to folds and a small repair to inner margin on blank side (see attached image), pale stain affecting the bottom of 5 pages, occasional brown spots to margins, pale browning to pages next to map, and next to missing map, otherwise a good clean tight copy. THE PASTED IN SIGNATURE OF CHARLES DARWIN IS PART OF A LETTER WITH THE ADDRESS OF "SPRING GARDENS". The Charles Darwin signature is from a clipped letter, "I remain yours- Charles Darwin, Wednesday, Spring Gardens". Darwin arrived in London (after his father said he would support him) and went to the Whitehall Admiralty building to speak with Robert FitzRoy in Captain Beaufort's office. FitzRoy told Darwin that the other person he had offered the job to had just turned it down and he wanted to know if Darwin was still interested in the position. He enthusiastically accepted the offer and FitzRoy outlined the details of the voyage. Darwin learned that the sail date had been postponed until 10 October. Later in the afternoon Darwin took up residence at 17 Spring Gardens, just around the corner from Whitehall. The next few days were spent shopping in London and discussing the details of the voyage with FitzRoy. At the bottom of the clipped signature in the neat hand of a previous owner or recipient "Charles, son of R.W. Dawson MD-Shrewsbury- Sec Geol. Soc." See: R. B. Freeman, The Works of Charles Darwin, page 31-39. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE BY CLICKING ON THE IMAGE, FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        The poetical works of Robert Burns

      Printed for the booksellers in Australia. 1832. Octavo, modern half-morocco, lithographed title page [with vignette images of Tam O'Shanter and Souter Johnny, "His ancient trusty drouthy crony"] and frontispiece ["from Taylor's authenticate picture"], pp ix; [blank]; xiv; 284; 23 [glossary]. According to Gibson (Bibliography of Robert Burns ..., Kilmarnock, 1881) the text is the 1813 Perth edition of Burns' poems, with added title page and frontispiece, presumably inserted into unsold copies by an enterprising Australian bookseller. A curious imprint; the National Gallery of Australia have catalogued the title page and frontispiece as having been created in Australia, but their creator has long been a mystery. Writing in 1932, the bibliographer J.E. Leeson commented: 'I could not find any newspaper references to this volume, in booksellers' advertisements or otherwise.' (Leeson, J.E. Papers relating to Australian bibliographies. Item 2. Bibliographic notes on the The poetical works of Robert Burns. Printed for the booksellers in Australia, 1832.State Library of New South Wales, call no. Aa 78).

        Bold Dighton. Being the account of an action fought off Gaudaloupe, in 1805, where ninety-five Americans, and near three hundred Britons made their escape from the prison at that place

      Boston: Sold by Deming, wholesale and retail, No, 62, Hanover Street, 2d door from Friend Street, 1832. Broadside. Horizontal fold expertly reinforced, tiny hole at top margin, creasing at lower corner, and one or two foxing spots, still about very good.. 1 sheet. Text in two columns, separated by type ornaments and publishing information. There were a number of issues and printings of this work which Shaw & Shoemaker list tentatively as 1805 (?), but all were printed quite a bit later, the earliest in 1829 with a different title. This edition about 1832 (or as late as 1837) during which time Deming was at the address printed between the columns. The twenty-six stanza ballad concerns the American and English sailors' escape from the French prison at Bassaterre after Commander Bainbridge's vessel, the Retaliation was captured by the French. It begins: "Come all ye bold seamen who plough the rough main, Give ear to my ditty the truth I'll explain; 'Tis of our misfortune in time of great war, And how we escaped from the French, at Bussaterre." Rare. We could only locate two copies of this edition: Harvard, and Huntington [OCLC: 80262867]. RBH and ABPC show only one at auction in over fifty years. Shaw & Shoemaker 8047.
