        Memoirs and correspondence of Admiral Lord de Saumarez

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1838. From Original Papers in the Possession of the Family. 2 volumes octavo (222 × 132 mm). Original brown combed cloth, title gilt to the spines, panels in blind to the boards, yellow surface-paper endpapers. Engraved portrait frontispiece to each, 4 uncoloured aquatint plates of engagements, and 3 full-page maps in all. Sunned on the spines, and at the board edges, some spotting, light browning, but overall an unusually well-preserved copy. First and only edition, and uncommon thus. In 1767, when he was just ten years old, Saumarez's name was entered into the books of the Sol by his impecunious father, remaining there until he left school and joined the Montreal as a middie three years later. In 1778 his excellent service during the American Revolution earned him the command of the galley Spitfire "in which he was active on the coast of New England until she was burnt to prevent her capture that August" (ODNB). He fought at the Dogger Bank action in 1781, "at the Battle of St. Kitts he captured the French flagship Ville de Paris with the assistance of Kempenfelt. Eleven years later he was knighted for his skill in the taking of the French frigate Réunion of Cherbourg. He commanded the Orion at the battles of St. Vincent and the Nile, being senior captain at the latter" (NMM). In 1801 he defeated a combined French and Spanish squadron at Algeçiras, having shortly before been driven off by the French component alone. Nelson said of Saumarez's conduct, "The promptness with which he refitted, the spirit with which he attacked a superior force, after his recent disaster and the masterly conduct of the action, I do not think were ever surpassed." He commanded the English Baltic fleet sent (1809) to assist the Swedes, was made a peer in 1831, and died in 1838. Saumarez's biographer Sir John Ross, best remembered as an arctic voyager, entered the navy at nine and served with distinction in the French wars. In 1803 he joined the Grampus, under the flag of Saumarez. He continued with Saumarez in different ships, as midshipman or mate, and, after his promotion in 1805, as lieutenant, until 1812. In 1878 he went to explore Baffin Bay and attempt a North-west Passage and published A Voyage of Discovery (1819). He was knighted in 1833 for an expedition on which he discovered the peninsula 'Boothia Felix' and on which his nephew, James Clarke Ross, discovered the magnetic North Pole.

        The Oriental Portfolio

      London: Smith, Elder & Co, 1838-1840. 2 original parts, folio. (21 3/4 x 14 7/8 inches). Letterpress titles to both parts. 1 tinted lithographic additional title by T.H. Pitt after Bacon, printed by Lefevre, 10 tinted lithographic plates (9 after Bacon's sketches worked up by Dibdin (7) or Roberts (2), 1 after Stephanoff; lithographed by W. Gauci (5), A. Picken (1), Louis Haghe (2), W. Walton (1) and Hullmandel (1)), each with a leaf of explanatory letterpress text. Unbound as issued within original burgundy cloth portfolios, upper covers blocked in gilt with the title, the British Royal arms and a dedication to Queen Victoria, cloth ties, cream glazed pastedwons and flaps, all contained within a single modern red morocco-backed red cloth-covered box, spine gilt. An exceptional copy of this very rare work: the first edition in the original parts The present first edition was reissued in one volume with the same title in 1841: a work with which the present work is often confused. There is no record of a complete copy of this work in parts selling at auction in over 30 years. David Roberts and Thomas Dibdin prepared drawings after Thomas Bacon's sketches. Together they "transmuted Bacon's charming originals into splendid designs of true 1830s orientalism" (Archer & Lightbown)." "Thomas Bacon, a Lieutenant in the Bengal Horse Artillery, ... served in India for about five years until 1836 ... The Oriental Portfilio visually recalls Bacon's travels in India." (Scenic Splendours p. 68). Horace Hayman Wilson pointed out in the preface how much this work, complete with full explanatory text, was needed, as very little of note had been published since the Daniells' work of forty years earlier. Events proved him wrong: no more then the present two parts were ever completed, and they remain as a hint of what might have been: "it is greatly to be regretted then that The Portfolio expired after its second number in 1840, for if completed Roberts and his associates might have left us an India equal in sensitiveness and suggestiveness with his Spain, Palestine, and Egypt" (Archer & Lightbown). Not in Abbey; Archer & Lightbown India Observed pp.122-6, 149-50 nos 183-4 (1841 reissue only); P. Godrej & P. Rohatgi Scenic Splendours pp.68-69

Uncommon to find bound up in the original parts, with their covers. (Anderson 337) Schreiber [née Bertie; other married name Guest], Lady Charlotte Elizabeth, translator, businesswoman, and collector who working with Welsh clerics, and drawing upon the research prompted by the Romantic revival and translations started by Welshmen such as William Owen Pughe, she undertook the mammoth task of transcribing and translating twelve Welsh tales into English. Initially published in parts—the first, an Arthurian romance, ‘The Lady of the Fountain’, appearing in 1838—the enterprise culminated in the magnificent three-volume production The Mabinogion (1849). Eleven of the tales were from the medieval Llyfr coch o Hergest (Red Book of Hergest), and consisted of the four branches of the Mabinogi, three Arthurian romances (Lady Charlotte has been credited as the first to recognize their European analogues), and four independent tales. She also included the sixteenth-century tale ‘Taliesin’, illustrations, and her own learned notes. See ODNB.

Prima edizione di questo bel resoconto di viaggio in Turchia, ricco di osservazioni sugli usi e costumi, la geografia, la religione, etc. Le successive edizioni dell'opera furono pubblicate sotto il titolo "Picturesque Europe" (1854 e 1874). Julia Pardoe (Beverley, Yorkshire, 1806-1862), viaggiatrice britannica, si era recata in Turchia nel 1835 in compagnia di suo padre per trovare giovamento ai suoi problemi di salute in un clima più caldo. Il Bartlett (Kentish Towne, 1809-in mare, nel corso di una traversata tra Malta e Marsiglia, 1854) fu pittore e disegnatore, illustratore di molti volumi di viaggio, attivo in Egitto, in Siria, in Palestina, negli Stati Uniti, da non confondere con un suo omonimo che espose tra il 1831 e il 1833 alla Royal Academy.

Il Gioja viene considerato un dittatore per quanto riguarda la cultura economica in Italia, proprio con quest'opera volle riassumere tutto cio vche si era scritto e pensato in materia di economia, finanza e amministrazione. Per quanto bravo nell'analisi, cade nella cavillosità delle sue critiche, alcune stucchevoli quali quelle di voler trovare incongruenze nelle teorie di economisti stranieri come Smith e Say in omaggio ad un supposto primato degli studiosi stranieri.

        Delle prigioni e del loro migliore ordinamento. Trattato. Seconda edizione

      Stamperia e Cartiera del Fibreno 1838 In 8, pp. 315 + (1b) + (2) con 6 tavv. in lit. f.t. con prospetti architettonici e piante di famosi edifici carcerari di Gand, Pittsburg, New York e Filadelfia. Bruniture sparse. Br. ed. Seconda ed. (la prima uscì nel 1837) di questo importante trattato del maggior riformatore delle carceri del Regno delle Due Sicilie. Volpicella, sociologo, venne incaricato da Ferdinando II di prendere informazioni sul sistema carcerario in Europa e nel mondo. Volpicella utilizzò come fonte principale le opere di John Howard, che, alla fine del Settecento, intraprese un vero e proprio viaggio alla scoperta dei maggiori luoghi di detenzione europei. Nella prima parte del trattato l'A. passa in rassegna le prigioni dei principali paesi (Inghilterra, Scozia, Irlanda, Svezia, Danimarca, Prussia, Polonia, Olanda, Francia, Svizzera, Spagna, Portogallo). Secondo l'A., che segue la cosiddetta "teoria dell'intimidazione", il modo più efficace per tenere gli uomini lontani da questi luoghi, e quindi prevenire la criminalità, è l'associare al carcere l'immagine di posto spaventoso e orribile. A tal fine devono essere costruiti in luoghi isolati e quasi inaccessibili, le "mura nere e massicce, le porte ferrate e chiuse, niuna finestra e poche feritoie di fuori", anche se dentro "siano comode e sanissime". Al prigioniero deve essere assolutamente vietato l'incontro con parenti e amici. Tuttavia, per non recidere completamente i legami con la famiglia, al detenuto si possono dare notizie dei parenti "ma non troppo frequentemente e per modo che una simile licenza possa talvolta parer un favore conceduto a quelli che nella loro prigionia danno buoni segni di ravvedimento".Prevale l'ottica che vede nell'istituzione carceraria un luogo "di purgazione e di emenda" in cui "un ragionato soffrire dee attuar i malvagi pensieri e le inconsiderate voglie, e i costumi emendare". L'A. spiega quindi i metodi con cui si può aiutare il detenuto a pentirsi: in primo luogo non gli devono essere continuamente rammentate le sue colpe passate, anzi "fa d'uopo aver cura attentissima di niente fare o dire che le cause possa ricordar loro di quella infermità o l'infermità stessa e i suoi miserabili effetti". Utile sarebbe anche istituire delle funzioni religiose all'entrata e all'uscita del carcerato per cominciare ad "implorare l'aiuto divino" per chi entra e come forma di ringraziamento per chi esce. Anche il lavoro può diventare un efficace strumento di redenzione, poiché insegna l'ordine e la disciplina, allontanando dall'ozio quanti potrebbero peggiorare ulteriormente trascorrendo una vita inerte e inoperosa. Per quanto riguarda le punizioni da sottoporre ai carcerati, i Direttori "come veri padri di famiglia" sono in diritto di comminarle. La punizione deve domare gli spiriti irrequieti ma non nuocere alla sanità del corpo né avvilire l'anima. A seconda del tipo di infrazione commessa, Volpicella individua una punizione adatta: chi disobeddisce può essere tenuto in camere buie per qualche giorno o ricevere solo pane e acqua; chi è pigro al lavoro può essere obbligato a girare la ruota del mulino; a colui che non osserva il silenzio può essere lasciato in bocca per qualche ora un pezzo di legno; l'atto di violenza deve essere punito con il corpetto di forza o con la "repressione verticale", che consiste nel legare il prigioniero al muro impedendogli i movimenti. Saggio di grande interesse, che testimonia la particolare anomalia italiana in campo carcerario, legata alla sua arretratezza in campo industriale. In Italia, infatti, è venuta a mancare quella fase storica in cui l?istituzione penitenziaria ha svolto una funzione di addestramento al lavoro di fabbrica e di controllo del mercato della forza lavoro. In Italia, il carcere, si è immediatamente adeguato alla funzione deterrente e terroristica. Cfr. Neppi Modona, La scienza e la colpa, p. 58. ITA

Le tavole, scrive la Peyrot, sono ristampate con l'impiego degli stessi rami impressi nel 1825 per l'album "Vues de la Ville de Turin" e sono le stesse già presenti nell'edizione originale del 1826, "collocate di contro alle medesime pagine". Sono aggiunte, in questa ristampa, la veduta prospettica della Gran Madre all'antiporta, la veduta prospettica di piazza Vittorio Emanuele (l'attuale piazza Vittorio Veneto) a fronte della p. 190 e la veduta prospettica della piazza del Re (oggi piazza Carlo Felice) dinanzi alla p. 191. "La veduta di Superga e la pianta topografica sono collocate rispettivamente di contro alle pagine 316 e 454, invece che di contro al frontespizio e alla p. 338 come nell'edizione del 1826.

      1838. Very Good. PEAKE, R. B. SNOBSON'S SEASONS, being annals of Cockney sports. (London particular.) London: Published by M. A. Nattali, [1838]. First edition. 91 of 92 engraved caricatures poking fun at the misadventures of sporting men in the horse and hound set, amateur anglers, etc., by Robert Seymour, Dickens' first illustrator. The plates include two illustrated half- titles with the title "Seymour's Sketches." vii, 104 pp. Tall octavo, bound by Bayntun of Bath in green, three-quarter crushed morocco with marbled sides, gilt titling to spine ("Seymour's Sketches" and "Snobson's Seasons"), t.e.g. Bookplate to front pastedown. Binding shows some edgewear and is rubbed at joints, and sunned at spine and top edges. The plates are remarkably clean and bright with faint offsetting of plates to text. Very good overall. Robert Seymour (1800-1836) was a prolific illustrator and caricaturist. Although heavily influenced by Cruikshank's style, his original contribution to the genre was the routine of comic sportsmen from London having adventures in the country. Today he is most recognized for having provided the prototypes for the characters Pickwick and Winkle in the early installments of Charles Dickens' "Pickwick Papers" before his untimely death. Richard Brinsley Peake (1792-1847) was a productive and popular playwright, much valued for his dependability over the course of his forty-year career. One of his many contributions to the theatre was "Presumption, or, The Fate of Frankenstein" (1824), the first dramatic adaptation of Mary Shelley's "Frankenstein." He was also a prolific family man who, to paraphrase his own self assessment, though never idle, was often poor. In the 1830s and 1840s he began to publish in periodicals for vital extra cash. "Snobson's Seasons" is a light-hearted history of cockney sports. References: D.N.B.; Houfe, 296; Benezit; Westwood & Satchell, 193. Scare, only two copies at auction in over 30 years.

        Wat_Che_Mon_Ne, An Ioway Chief

      F.W. Greenough Philadelphia: F.W. Greenough, 1838. unbound. very good. J.T. Bowen. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 19.25" x 13.75". Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project, sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist. King painted the prominent Indians while they visited Washington D.C. as treaty delegates. Most of the original oil paintings were destroyed by fire in the Smithsonian Museum in 1865. These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century. Wat-Che-Mon-Ne, also known as the Orator, was known for his peacemaking between warring tribes. Overall toning and offsetting. Slight tape residue along top edge and light scattered staining. One piece from our collection of Native American portraits.

Padwick notes that there were various editions of this book published between 1838 and 1851 with updated scores, all of which retained the title-page dated 1838. This edition is not noted by Padwick. This copy contains interesting correspondence between a previous owner and the librarian at Winchester College. The ownership of this volume can be traced back to A.C.McKay, who sold it to Winder in 1978 for £12. It then appeared in the catalogue of his collection when it was sold at Christie's in 1985, making £10 in conjunction with other books. The purchaser was John McKenzie, who then sold it. It then disappeared into a private collection until 2007, when it appeared in another Christie's sale.

Publisher's deep brown cloth, faded to tan on spines; cream yellow endpapers; page edges untrimmed; brief (1/8") mended tear to cloth at crown of volume I; volumes I & III faded at upper extremities of boards; still a clean, complete, and entirely unsophisticated set, texts unmarked with scattered faint foxing; Very Good. Attractive, unrestored copy of this Dickens masterwork, noted by Self as "the first English novel to feature a young child as protagonist." Begun as a serial in Bentley's Miscellany, the book was issued prior to the story's completion in the magazine. Later issues replace "Boz" with "Charles Dickens" on title page and replace the "Fireside" illustration, which Dickens disliked, with a graveside scene.

        Ong Pa Ton Ga: Chief Of The Omahas

      F.W. Greenough Philadelphia: F.W. Greenough, 1838. unbound. very good. J.T. Bowen. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 19 x 13.75". Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project, sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist. King painted the prominent Indians while they visited Washington D.C. as treaty delegates. Most of the original oil paintings were destroyed by fire in the Smithsonian Museum in 1865. These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century. Ong Pa Ton Ga is remembered for his poignant words at the funeral of an elderly Sioux chief in 1815. This funeral, which showed great respect to the Sioux, had been arranged by General William Clark, the Indian superintendent from St. Louis. Light overall toning and offsetting. Chip to lower left corner. Slight tape residue along top and bottom edges. One of many Native American portraits in our collection.

        Kelso: The Services and Sermons of The North Parish Church, And The Ordination and Introduction of The Rev. Horatius Bonar, The First Minister; With An Introductory Notice by the Rev. J.M. McCulloch

      Kelso: Alex Leadbetter, 1838.. Very scarce book. 152 pages in very good condition with just an occasional mark. Black cloth covers with gilt design. "Bound by Remnant & Edmonds". There's a signature on the first page and an inscription opposite the title page. There is a loose picture of Kelso Parish Church but I don't know if this is a loose page from the book or just something that someone has inserted. This single "page" has foxing on both sides and doesn't have the same feel as the rest of the book. Overall an incredibly scarce book in very good condition. ****Price includes UK P&P**** For overseas orders please email me.
