        Sepolcro detto falsamente degli Orazj, e Curiazj, Rimane su la via Appia?

      Paris 1833 - This print was published between 1806-1833. John Wilton-Ely 646The watermark that is present is number 93 in John Wilton-Ely on page 1182 and is dated in the mid 1830sFrom the series "Antichita di Albano e di Castel Gandolfo"Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and "like Callot makes great use of the swelling line" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Vasi.et Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi's own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons, colleagues, visitors and influential people. He believed absolutely in the supremacy of Roman over Greek architecture, an argument he expounded most forcefully in his Della magnificenza ed architettura dei Romani (On the Magnificence of Roman Architecture, 1761). his romanticized views and imaginary interiors had a profound effect on stage designers, painters of capricci such as Hubert Robert, and even writers: William Beckford, the author of the Gothic novel and Vathek . In the 20th century his imaginary interiors have been admired by the Surrealists . Reference: John Wilton-Ely. Giovanni B

        Surgical observations on the restoration of the nose. Inscribed to John Lizars, and from the library of Lawson Tait.

      S. Highley, London 1833 - Inscribed to John Lizars, and from the Library of Lawson TaitDieffenbach, Johann Friedrich (1792-1847). Surgical observations on the restoration of the nose; and on the removal of polypi and other tumours from the nostrils . . . with the history of physiology of rhinoplastic operations, notes and additional cases by John Stevenson Bushnan (1808?-84). 8vo. viii, [2], 9-159, [3, including ads]pp. 26 plates. London: S. Highley, 1833. 228 x 143 mm. (uncut). Original cloth-backed boards, rebacked, corners a bit worn. Edges of leaves a bit dust-soiled, unobtrusive library stamp on title and plates, but a fine copy. Presentation Copy, inscribed by Bushnan to John Lizars (c. 1787-1860) on the half-title: "Professor Lizars with John Bushnan's best regards." Bookplate of the Birmingham Medical Institute, noting that this copy was the gift of [Robert] Lawson Tait (1845-99).First Edition in English of the rarest book in English on plastic surgery after Carpue's Account of Two Successful Operations for Restoring a Lost Nose (1816). The above work is a translation, prepared by physician and medical writer John Stevenson Bushnan, of the section on rhinoplasty from Dieffenbach's Chirurgische Erfahrunugen (1829-34). Bushnan augmented Dieffenbach's text with annotations, accounts of his own cases and an important, well-documented history of rhinoplastic operations. Bushnan presented this copy to Scottish surgeon John Lizars (see Garrison-Morton 6026), whose letter describing a rhinoplasty operation he had performed in 1831 is reprinted on p. 157; the case is illustrated in plate XXV. This copy later passed into the ownership of another Scottish surgeon, Lawson Tait, who is cited seven times in Garrison-Morton for his contributions to gynecological and plastic surgery.Dieffenbach's clinical work in plastic surgery was "monumental in its variety, inventiveness and breadth of scope. . . . Although Dieffenbach also used the Italian method of rhinoplasty, he preferred the Indian method because of the stronger quality of the forehead skin. . . . [He also] realized that the various metal contrivances of Tagliacozzi and von Graefe for shaping the new nose were largely ineffectual, and he devised many subsequent procedures for trimming and shaping the nose, thus greatly improving the results attainable by the Indian method" (Gnudi & Webster, pp. 321-22). Dieffenbach pioneered many methods and principles of plastic surgery which "have not been improved upon and are still constantly employed" (Gnudi & Webster, p. 321). Zeis 513.

The bindery's work in the early days was primarily for the Kelmscott Press, including the famous pigskin bindings on the Kelmscott Chaucers, but eventually the balance of their work was outside individual commissions. The bindery continued until 1921.

        An APPEAL In FAVOR Of That CLASS Of AMERICANS CALLED AFRICANS.

      Allen and Ticknow, Boston: 1833 - Frontis. Plate. "More ambitious in scope than either its predecessors or its successors, Child's Appeal also differs strikingly in style and substance from other white American abolitionist tracts, including the many that bear witness to its influence. Unlike Amos A. Phelps's Lectures on Slavery and Its Remedy (1834), William Ellery Channing's Slavery (1835), Angelina GrimkŽ's Appeal to the Christian Women of the South (1836), and Theodore Dwight Weld's The Bible against Slavery (1837), the Appeal relies very sparingly on religious and scriptural arguments. Unlike Weld in American Slavery As It Is (1839), Child relegates incidents of cruelty to a minor place in the Appeal. Unlike GrimkŽ, Child emphasizes rational rather than emotional persuasion, cultivates a political discourse that is more masculine than feminine, and targets a gender-mixed rather than a female audience. And unlike abolitionist tract writers generally, not excepting Richard Hildreth, whose Despotism in America (1840) amplifies the Appeal's economic and political analysis, Child looks beyond the issue of slavery to the larger imperative of ending discrimination against free African Americans. In short, the Appeal's most distinctive and enduring feature is its indictment of racism, which governs four out of eight chapters, recurs as a sub-theme elsewhere in the book, and shapes Child's argument throughout." [eNotes, History]. However, as Child predicted in her preface [". though I expect ridicule and censure, I cannot fear them."], this stance of equality extracted a personal cost in terms of her public image & popularity, e.g., the Boston Athaneum retracted the free library privileges that had been conferred & her book sales plunged. Nevertheless, today the work is acknowledged as a ground-breaking tour-de- force, occupying a preeminent role in American Abolitionist literature. Scarce in the trade, with ABPC current showing only 3cc at auction in the last 30+ years, with the last in 2000 [with that copy imperfect, lacking the errata]. Professionally rebacked.

        Voyages Round the World; with selected sketches of voyages to the South Seas, North and South Pacific Oceans, China, etc.between 1792 and 1832

      New York 1833 - Original green cloth-backed brown/grey paper covered-boards, printed paper label to spine (label chipped, neat repairs to spine), green cloth chemise, green cloth slipcase, brown morocco lettering-piece Provenance: E.A. Bradford (early pencilled signature to front pastedown); Sarah F. Bradford (inscription) First edition of a classic narrative of voyages to the Pacific. Fanning's adventurous life at sea began at a young age. A native of Connecticut, he set sail in 1792 for the South Seas in search of seal skins. During the following quarter century he made voyages around the world and to the Pacific, visiting Australia, south Georgia, Fiji, Tonga, and the Marquesas. Included in his work is a narrative of the first American naval exploring expedition to the southern hemisphere in 1829-30 by Benjamin Pendleton. "Fanning, who went to sea as a 14-year-old cabin boy in 1783, first sailed to the South Seas on a voyage for seal skins on the Betsey in May 1797. During the next 25 years he either captained or directed over 70 voyages to the Pacific and around the globe, personally visiting China, Australia, Fiji, and the Marquesas. In 1798 he discovered both Fanning and Palmyra Islands.the latter is officially a part of the city and county of Honolulu and is privately owned by a Honolulu family. In 1829 Fanning was instrumental in sending out an exploring expedition under the command of Captain Benjamin Pendleton and Nataniel Brown Palmer. It was Fanning's petition to Congress and largely his own personal efforts that led to the . fitting out of the United States Exploring Expedition [i.e Wilkes Expedition]" (Forbes). The Bishop Museum in Honolulu holds Princess Kaiulani's copy of Fanning's Voyages.

        James Madison Signed Membership Form as President of American Colonization Society

      Washington 1833 - Document Signed. "Office of the Colonization Society." Washington, [ca. 1833-1836]. With Society's seal engraved at bottom center (a ship sailing towards Liberia, with Latin motto "Lex in Tenebris" - light amid darkness). 1 p., 8 1/4 x 11 1/8 in. A rare blank membership certificate, signed in advance by the Society's President. It would have conferred a life membership in the controversial American Colonization Society, which advocated gradual manumission of slaves and colonization of freed blacks to Liberia.Signed membership certificates from the Society are relatively rare. Only four have appeared in major auction records in the last 30 years. According to the Library of Congress, "Selling life memberships was a standard fund-raising practice of benevolent societies such as the American Colonization Society. At thirty dollars each, the memberships were a popular gift for ministers. In 1825, one of the agents who sold the certificates in New England estimated that 'not less than $50,000 have in this way been poured into the treasury of the Lord.'"This is a superb artifact of antebellum America. It marks the commitment of the "Father of the Constitution" to a solution to the race dilemma that would be castigated today, but which was moderate for its time. Complete TranscriptOffice of the Colonization Society WashingtonThis certifies that ______________ is a Member for life of the AMERICAN COLONZATION SOCIETY. James MadisonLux in Tenebris Am Col: Soc: A.D. 1816.Historical BackgroundThe A.C.S. was founded in 1816 as the American Society for Colonizing the Free People of Color of the United States. Its mission was to promote the voluntary manumission of slaves by their owners, and to remove free blacks from the United States and relocate them to the African colony of Liberia.Madison, James Monroe, Bushrod Washington, Henry Clay, Daniel Webster, Andrew Jackson and Francis Scott Key were among the luminaries who lent their names to the A.C.S. Most A.C.S. members were slaveowners from the upper South, like Madison, Monroe, Clay, and Jackson. The animating ideas behind it - that slavery was evil, but that whites and free blacks could never live together in peace - long predated its inception. Thomas Jefferson himself urged the removal of blacks when he wrote his Notes on the State of Virginia in 1782. He and Madison hated slavery, for its effect on the economy, for its psychological impact on white youths, and for its injustice, but they shared a nightmare vision of an America torn apart by race. As Jefferson predicted, "Deep-rooted prejudices entertained by the whites; ten thousand recollections, by the blacks, of the injuries they have sustained . will divide us into parties, and produce convulsions, which will probably never end but in the extermination of the one or the other race."Madison joined the A.C.S. in 1816, but he had written a "Memorandum on an African Colony for Freed Slaves" in 1789. He justified his position in a letter to the Marquis de Lafayette, explaining that "the two races cannot co-exist, both being free and equal. The great sina qua non, therefore, is some external asylum for the coloured race." (Ketchum, James Madison, 628). Historian Drew McCoy writes that "Madison's antislavery motives . are unimpeachable. He never supported colonization because he wanted to deport free blacks; he consistently supported it because he wanted to eradicate slavery. And since his analysis never explicitly led to the conclusion that blacks were inherently deficient or inferior [as it had for Jefferson], perhaps it is misleading to consider his formal position, in any meaningful sense of the term, 'racist."With a $100,000 bequest from Congress, the first boatload of settlers arrived in Liberia in 1822. The capital of Liberia - Monrovia - was named after James Monroe, U.S. President at the time and a member of A.C.S. Most voluntary emigrants fell victim to diseases within months of .

        Sense and Sensibility. With; Mansfield Park. With; Northanger Abbey and Persuasion. With; Pride and Prejudice.

      Richard Bentley, New Burlington Street, London 1833 - Together, Five Austen Novels in Four Volumes. The FIRST ONE-VOLUME EDITION, and the FIRST ILLUSTRATED EDITION [with a frontispiece illustration and a smaller vignette on the engraved title] of each book. This has also been called the First Collected Edition of Austen's works but it is more accurately the First Uniform Edition as each volume was individually issued, between December of 1832 and April of 1833, as part of Bentley's Standard Novel series, numbered 23, 27, 28, and 30 respectively. Only Emma, number 25 in the series is absent here to complete the canon. In October of 1833, Bentley reissued the novels, bound in green cloth with white labels, and sequentially renumbered one through five. Properly considered, this Later Issue would be the First Collected Edition. All four volumes offered here are FIRST PRINTINGS [with the general, engraved, and regular title-pages uniformly dated 1833], FIRST ISSUES [with plain white endpapers], and in Bentley's FIRST BINDING of plum cloth with black spine labels. The lower label of Mansfield Park is absent, and there's some chipping to the labels on Pride and Prejudice, with loss of only the final D in Standard on the lower label. There's some light bubbling to the cloth on Sense and Sensibility, and the ink signature of Jos Pratt in the top right corner of the front board. This is Colonel Joseph Pratt, master of Cabra Castle in Ireland. His signature, as Colonel, Jos, or Joseph Pratt, is present on the front pastedown and/or title-page of Sense and Sensibility and Northanger Abbey/Persuasion. The ink signature of his son and heir, Mervyn Pratt, dated 1863 [the year that Joseph died and Mervyn became master of the castle] is present in "Mansfield Park" and Pride and Prejudice. Additionally, Cabra Castle is written in ink on the front pastedown of each book, apparently in the elder Pratt's hand. As is always the case, the original plum cloth has faded to tan on the spines and some of the boards, but there is virtually NO WEAR to the cloth. Internally, there's some minor offsetting from some of the frontispieces else the books are in near fine condition, and are extremely scarce thus. Published in December of 1832, this is only the THIRD EDITION of Sense and Sensibility, following the first two British editions published by Egerton, and preceding the 1833 First American Edition. It is the SECOND BRITISH EDITION [and THIRD EDITION overall] of Northanger Abbey and Persausaion, preceded only by the 1818 First Edition, and the separate 1832 Carey and Lea Editions of the two titles. It is the FOURTH EDITION of Mansfield Park, preceded only by the 1814 First and 1816 Second Edition, and the American First Edition, published in 1832. And it is the FIFTH EDITION of Pride and Prejudice, published closely on the heels of the American First Edition of 1833, and preceded only by the First, Second, and Third British Editions, published by Egerton between 1814 and 1817. Michael Sadleir in "XIX Fiction" notes that these Austen titles are some of the rarest in the Bentley Standard Novel library and Austen bibliographer David Gilson says that copies in the orignal cloth are "uncommon, particularly so those in good condition." Here are four remarkable survivors, in exceptional matching condition. Gilson D1, D3, D4, D5.

        Coloured Views on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, with plates of the coaches, machines, &c. from drawings made on the spot... with descriptive particulars, serving as a guide to travellers on the railway

      London: F. Shoberl for Ackermann & Co., sold by R. Ackermann, jun, 1833. Quarto. Expertly bound to style in red straight-grained half morocco over contemporary green paper-covered boards, the upper cover with an onlaid contemporary red straight-grained morocco title label, lettered and tooled in gilt, the spine divided into eight compartments by triple fillets, repeat overall decoration in each compartment, original grey/brown paper wrappers to the 1831 issue bound in Third edition, with the additional plate and the title to the first edition bound in. An eye-witness account of travel on the world's second practical railway line, with plates after Bury, "an outstanding architectural designer" (Abbey) and a detailed report of the difficulties overcome during the railways construction. Thomas Bury `a pupil of Augustus Pugin, was the artist responsible for the best-known views of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. Published as hand-coloured aquatints in paper covers by Ackermann in February 1831 [titled Six Coloured Views of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, with a plate of the coaches, machines, &c ], Bury's work went through many editions covering a period of about three years. There were seven views in the first edition and thirteen in the second. A reissue appeared in 1832 followed by Spanish and French editions, while the prints were reproduced separately in France and Germany. After re-engraving, new editions appeared in England in 1833 and 1834 ... Ackermann clearly realized the potential of the British and European markets for railway prints as no other work passed through so many editions' (Rees). The present copy includes the first state of one of the two folding plates of carriages and engines: before canopies were added to the lower set of carriages. The view of the interior of the Wapping to Edge Hill tunnel is in a later state (possibly the fifth) dated 1833 and after the removal of the steaming train (the train was a mistake as no train under steam was allowed in the tunnel). The inspiration for the project to build the railway was the success of the Stockton to Darlington rail line and the urgent commercial need for faster links between the docks of Liverpool and the factories of Manchester ("goods have been known to make the transit from New York to Liverpool in less time than from the latter town to Manchester.") The route was proposed in 1824 and, under the direction of George Stephenson and with parliament's blessing, the immense work was completed by 1830: the line being opened to the public on the 15th September of that year. Despite the tragic death of the Liverpool member of parliament Mr. Huskisson (the first fatality attributable to the Railways) and the huge cost of the work (£ 740,000 by 1830), the railway was an immediate popular and financial success. Speeds in excess of 30 m.p.h. were recorded for the 31 mile journey and as the author predicted in the final paragraph "The success of this experiment… has been….so complete, as to justify the anticipation of the speedy introduction of railways throughout the country.." The plates include three plates of the train and rolling stock employed on the railway, and 13 others of views of the railway in operation. Abbey Life 400; Gareth Rees Early Railway Prints (1980) p.21 and see plates 5-9 & 13; Tooley 120. (13 1/4 x 10 7/8 inches). 16 hand-coloured aquatint plates (13 by S.G.Hughes or H.Pyall after T.T.Bury, 3 folding by S.G. Hughes [2 after I. Shaw, 1 unsigned]), extra-illustrated with a cancel title from 1831 issue. (Folding plates with folds reinforced on verso with linen [as issued]).

Muletti ed impresse dalle officine Festa, Ajello e Doyen, realizzate tra il 1832 e il '34 (Rossana, Castello di Raconigi, Revello, Castello di Verzuolo, Cava di Sarizzo, Cavallermaggiore, Racconigi, Staffarda, Savigliano e la grande veduta di Saluzzo). Bellissimo esemplare in barbe, marginoso e a fogli chiusi. Rara edizione originale di questa vastissima opera, compilata "sul modello delle mirabili descrizioni statistiche del periodo napoleonico" (Einaudi, Saggi bibliogr. e storici, p. 208). Lo studio concerne infatti ogni aspetto della vita sociale ed economica del territorio di Saluzzo, compreso il Monviso ed alcune vallate alpine, fornendo estese informazioni sulla situazione demografica, economica, amministrativa, climatica, ecc., dei territori interessati. L'opera, per la sua rarità, è stata reimpressa in anastatica nel 1979. L'Eandi (1791-1848) fu Sottoprefetto di Saluzzo. Lasciò ancora una dissertazione Sulle Casse di risparmio stabilite nei R. Stati di terraferma, sui loro risultamenti e sui modi di favorirne l'incremento (1844). "L'avvocato Giovanni Eandi, cav. Mauriziano e socio dell'Accademia delle Scienze, fu intendente a Chiavari e poi a Pallanza. lasciò onorata e cara ricordanza, sia per la retta e provvida sua amministrazione, sia per le utili opere pubbliche che promosse. Coprì poi nella Capitale alte cariche. La sua Statistica della provincia di Saluzzo, frutto di lunghe veglie e continue diligenti ricerche, è lavoro. da non soffrire d'essere paragonato che colle migliori monografie di tale genere".

        Autograph Letter signed to his friend H. W. Kolle, concerning arrangements for a Hackney Coach outing and Kolle's arrest for climbing a lamp post

      [London, january, 1833]. 8vo. 4pp. Slight browning, otherwise in excellent condition . A superb letter from Dickens to his friend, H.W. Kolle from 1833 -- in fact, the earliest letter of any substance to appear on the market in the last 30 years. Only one earlier letter precedes it - a short note of invitation from 1832; no other letter from 1833 has surfaced at a public sale in the last three decades. Dickens' friend Kolle was a bank clerk who acted as a go between for Dickens during his love affair with Maria Beadnell, Dickens' first girlfriend. Kolle himself was engaged to one of the Beadnell sisters, Anne, and here, Dickens urges his friend to undertake all the arrangements for a Hackney Coach outing (presumably with the Beadnells). Along the way, Dickens pokes fun at Kolle's arrest on he previous Sunday evening for climbing a lamp post (according to a family tradition) - but certainly under the influence of drink. " ... on the subject of the Coach Engagement I should really prefer leaving it to you. My reason is this -- not to mention the obvious one that you do everything so well -- You engaged the last I never did anything in the money way without being imposed upon . . I really should not like my off hand, badly digested bargain to be balanced against your more prudent, less expensive and in every respect more eligible arrangements. With our friends the Beadnells too you can do no wrong." "I never was more delighted in my life than to hear that you were incarcerated ... My only regret is that I was not there to see the fun ... I suppose the story is to be entre nous and that in relating it, you follow the usual directions on the Glass Packages 'with care keep this side up' ... am so anxious to hear the particklers ... Of course you are not in fault. Those policemen are such a rascally set of Negroes (Blacks not Browns) ... " The date is supplied by the editors of the Pilgrim edition of THE LETTERS, who also note that the incident of Kolles arrest was at least partly the inspiration of Dickens' "Making a Night of It," in No 4 of "Scenes and Characters", 8 October 1834, in BELL'S LIFE IN LONDON, under the pseudonym "Tibbs"; and later, in SKETCHES BY BOZ, SECOND SERIES (1837). An incomparable Dickens letter of a very rare vintage, indeed

      Mexico. 26 de Noviembre de 1833. - Broadside, 11 1/2 x 8 1/4 inches, on a folded folio sheet. Light wrinkling. Near fine. In a half morocco and cloth folding box, spine gilt. An important broadside, announcing the secularization of the missions in California. Santa Anna, president of the Republic of Mexico, announces that the government will adopt all measures to make effective the secularization of the missions of Alta and Baja California, and to promote the colonization of the mission lands. Over the decades the missions, first established in 1769, had accumulated a great deal of land and wealth. The dispossession of the Church and the dissolution of the missions were critical events in the history of California, overthrowing the agrarian economy built up by the Church in the preceding half century. This broadside is a primary document in the unraveling of the power and influence of the missions, and is a fundamental document for the history of California. OCLC locates only four copies of this decree, all in California institutions. OCLC 21636893.

Chestnut St.,. 1833. 12mo, two volumes: pp. [1-2] i-x [11] 12-201 [202-204: blank]; [1-5] 6-197 [198-200: blank] + 4 pages of ads inserted at front of volume one and [24]-page publisher's catalogue inserted at rear of volume two, half title leaves and final blanks present in both volumes,. original drab boards with red muslin shelf backs, printed paper labels affixed to spine panels, all edges untrimmed.. Spine panels sunned, several damp stains to boards, largely bottom. quarter of volume one. A contemporary William Crosby & Co.. circulating library copy with their labels (partially effaced). affixed to front paste-downs, abrasions and scuffs to paste-downs. where paper protective dust jackets were removed, volume two lacks. front free endpaper, contemporary owner's name and date on recto of. half title leaf of volume two partially inked out with some transfer. of ink onto title leaf, scattered foxing to text blocks of both. volumes. Despite all faults, an unsophisticated copy, which presents. well externally. As an added bonus, there are some marginalia in. pencil and ink on pages 179, 196 and 197 by three contemporary. readers, one terming the story "a damned lie," another calling it. "the most ridiculous book that ever was written," and the third. calling it "profound" and the earlier readers "stupid." Enclosed in a. custom quarter leather folding box. (#75682). First U.S. edition. The text of this edition follows that of the 1818 UK first edition; it is a pirated edition according to Lyles. "FRANKENSTEIN is at once a Gothic horror tale and the first important science fiction novel. Its sustained popularity and place in modern myth is probably as much due to the innumerable stage, film, television, comic book and radio adaptations of it -- most of which depart completely from the text -- as to the strength of the work itself." - Jones and Newman (eds), Horror: 100 Best Books 8.

        SPOTTED OR CANADA GROUSE. [SPRUCE GROUSE].

      London. 1833. - Handcolored engraving with aquatint and etching by R. Havell, 1833, paper watermarked "J. Whatman / 1836." Plate CLXXVI [176] from the first edition of THE BIRDS OF AMERICA. Sheet size: 37 3/4 x 25 3/8 inches. Two very small neatly repaired marginal tears, else very good. A fine print of one of the rarer and very elusive game- birds of the northern States. A group of two male and two female Spruce Grouse (Canachites canadiensis) are shown on the edge of undergrowth that includes painted trilliam and twisted- stalk. They all look warily about, the male in the foreground takes fright at an imagined danger. "Audubon went to the state of Maine to observe the habits of this dark, secretive grouse and, although he succeeded, the task, he admitted, was perhaps as severe as any he ever undertook. 'These breeding grounds,' he wrote, 'I cannot better describe than by telling you that the larch forests, which are there called "Hackmetack Woods," are as difficult to traverse as the most tangled swamp of Labrador.We sunk at every step or two up to the waist, our legs stuck in the mire and our bodies squeezed between the dead trunks and branches of trees, the minute leaves of which insinuated among my clothes, and nearly blinded me.We saved our guns from injury, however, and seeing some of the Spruce Partridge before they perceived us, we procured several specimens.' There is some evidence that the spruce grouse may not be as abundant today as it was in earlier times. It is no longer easy to find, at least in the southern parts of its range" - Peterson.

        American Ornithology; or, the Natural History of Birds inhabiting the United States, not given by Wilson

      Samuel Augustus Mitchell [vol I]; Carey, Lea & Carey [vols II & III]; Carey & Lea [vol IV], Philadelphia 1833 - 19th-century black half morocco over green cloth-covered boards, the spine in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second and fourth, the compartments bordered in gilt with double fillets, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Provenance: Juliette Clary (inscribed by Bonaparte on the vol. I title, "Offert par l'auteur a sa Cousine Juliette") A very fine set of the first edition, first issue of this important American ornithological work, inscribed by Prince Bonaparte to his cousin and with additional uncoloured states of the plates in volume four. Bonaparte's important continuation of Wilson's American Ornithology describes 60 birds not in the original work. "A love for the same department of natural science, and a desire to complete the vast enterprise so far advanced by Wilson's labors, has induced us to undertake the present work," Bonaparte writes in the preface, "in order to illustrate what premature death prevented him from accomplishing, as well as the discoveries subsequently made in the feathered tribes of these States." "The work which had been performed by Wilson's hands alone now gave employment to several individuals. Titian R., the fourth son of Charles Wilson Peale, not only collected many of the birds figured while on the Long expedition, which were credited to Thomas Say, who originally described them in footnotes scattered through the report; or in a subsequent private trip to Florida during the winter and spring of 1825, under the patronage of Bonaparte; but also drew the figures engraved for the first, and two plates for the fourth and last volume. A German emigrant by the name of Alexander Rider, of whom little is known beyond that he was a miniature painter in 1813, and a portrait and historical painter in 1818, was responsible for the remainder of the drawings with the exception of the two figures of plate 4 of volume I." (Frank L. Burns, On Alexander Wilson ). That plate, the Great Crow Blackbird, is notable as being the first book appearance of any engraving after John James Audubon. Perhaps the most influential artist involved with the work, however, was Bonaparte's master engraver Alexander Lawson, arguably the most talented ornithological engraver in America at that time. Three issues of the first edition of Wilson's continuation have been identified. This fine set is comprised of the rare first issue of vol. 1 (with the Mitchell imprint and containing the first issue of plate 6 in that volume (see Ellis/Mengel) and with first issues of volumes two through four (published by Carey & Lea and printed by William Brown). Carey & Lea later reissued the first volume, with their own imprint, after purchasing the rights to the publication from Mitchell in 1828. The third issue includes volumes reprinted by T.K. and P.G. Collins (with their imprint replacing that of William Brown) for Carey & Lea with unchanged dates on the titles but actually printed in about 1835 after the completion of the final volume. We are aware of the existence of only one other inscribed set of Bonaparte's Ornithology to have appeared on the market in the last 30 years, inscribed to the Count Charles de Chatillon.
