No publication before this had presented so comprehensive a series of views of the monuments, landscape, and people of the Near East. "Robert's Holy Land was one of the most important and elaborate ventures of nineteenth-century publishing, and it was the apotheosis of the tinted lithograph" (Abbey, Travel). These lithographs were originally published in twenty parts, most parts containing six plates, the price for each part with coloured plates (the most expensive state) being 3 guineas. F.G. Moon.

Octavo, 19th-century three-quarter blue morocco, marbled boards, raised bands, gilt-decorated spines, marlbed endpapers, top edges gilt. $1500.First edition, with engraved portraits of Madame DÂ’Arblay, General DÂ’Arblay, Queen Charlotte, Charles Burney, and others. Handsomely bound by Root and Son.DÂ’Arblay, better known by her maiden name, Fanny Burney, wrote the extremely popular novels Evelina, Cecilia and Camilla. Her works had a great influence on Jane Austen, who took the title Pride and Prejudice from the last pages of Cecilia. “Madame dÂ’Arblay's diary is now more interesting than her novels. The descriptions of Mr. Thrale and Johnson and Boswell himself rival Boswell's own work” (DNB). “These volumes are among the most delightful in the languageÂ… To the mere novel-reader they are charming; to the student of literary history and English manners, invaluable” (Allibone I, 475). A few spots of foxing to preliminaries; spines evenly sunned to brown. A near-fine set.

Includes narratives of his expeditions to the northwest coast of America in the brig Caroline, 1799-1801, and the voyage of the Lelia Byrd to California in 1803-04. “The former is especially valuable for its accounts of the Indians and their country at this early date, and the latter as one of but two known accounts of the Battle of San DiegoÂ… ClevelandÂ’s last voyage to the Pacific, on board the Beaver, 1817-20, funded by John Jacob Astor, was of particular importance because of his involvement in the wars between the Spaniards and the revolutionaries in Chile and Peru. ClevelandÂ’s books are important for the historical data they contain about American trade in the Pacific with China, the northwest coast of America, and Latin America” (Hill). Sabin 13665.

Together, four offprints. Large octavo, original printed paper self-wrappers, original stitching, uncut and partially unopened; pp. 23. Housed together with three other offprints in custom cloth chemises and half morocco clamshell box. $1800.First edition of Champollion’s spirited defense of his own phonetically based system of hieroglyphic translation, in original wrappers. Together with three offprints by his elder brother Jacques-Joseph Champollion-Figeac, also an Egyptologist.“A French classical scholar and archaeologist, responsible for deciphering Egyptian hieroglyphics,” Champollion is “celebrated as the founding father of Egyptology… [His] thesis on the ‘hieroglyphic, figurative, ideographic and alphabetic’ systems of ancient Egypt… caused a sensation, providing the long-searched-for solution to the translation of Egyptian hieroglyphics… [In 1831], a professorship in Egyptian history and archaeology was specially created for him. Champollion died suddenly on March 4, 1832, in the midst of writing his great Egyptian grammar and dictionary. This was published by his brother after his death” (BBC). In this Lettre, Champollion bluntly criticizes Seyffarth’s Rudimenta hieroglyphices and Spohn’s researches, discrediting their claims to have achieved a system of translation. Champollion recounts the main points published in his Précis du Système Hiéroglyphique (Paris, 1824), which contains the general application of his system of decipherment and its proof. Champollion’s Lettre is here offered with three offprints by his elder brother Jacques-Joseph Champollion-Figeac, who worked closely with his brother and continued his work after his death: 1. Notice sur un Papyrus Grec, offprint from Bulletin Universel des Sciences et de l’Industrie, June 1824; pp. 12, folded as issued, uncut. 2. Scarabées. Systèm Numérique, offprint from Bulletin Universel des Sciences et de l’Industrie, May 1825; pp. 8, folded as issued, uncut and unopened. 3. Notice sur un Sacrophage Royal nouvellement découvert en Egypt, et transporté de Thèbes à Paris, offprint from Moniteur, July 25, 1833; pp. 8, folded as issued, uncut and unopened. Text in French. “Champollion” written in pencil on front wrapper of his Lettre.Neat repair to lower corner of front wrapper of the Lettre. An intriguing and quite scarce collection in fine condition.

        NARRATIVE OF THE LOSS OF THE MARY ROSE AT SPITHEAD JULY 20 1545 FROM ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT A Relic Of The Mary Rose

Bound in wooden boards salvaged from the 'Mary Rose', with black leather spine titled “A Relic Of The Mary Rose” in gilt. 96 pp. Measuring 9 x 6 cms. All edges gilt. A very good copy, the binding firm, the wood boards a little bowed and the spine tips nicked and rubbed. The contents are entirely complete, a little darkened to the margins and with a contemporary gift inscription to the front endpaper.

On his accession to the throne, Henry VIII embarked upon a programme of ship building, including the “Mary Rose” which built between 1509 and 1511 was one of the largest ships in the English navy. As the English flagship, she took part in many of the naval conflicts over more than three decades of Henry's reign. Her last engagement was in the Solent against a French invasion fleet in July 1545. With Henry watching from Southsea Castle on the mainland, the “Mary Rose” sank with the loss of around 500 men. The wreck lay undiscovered for nearly 300 years until its accidental discovery by fishermen in 1836. Wanting to clear the obstruction, the fishermen hired pioneer divers Henry Abbinett, John Deane and William Edwards to investigate. After the initial discovery John Deane received exclusive salvage rights to the wreck, recovering and later selling relics from the ship, including long bows and several bronze and iron guns. The wood for this binding was purchased on November 12th, 1840, at Mr. Deane's Public Sale of Articles recovered from the Mary Rose. In 1982 after 8 years of preparation and groundwork the remainder of the Mary Rose was brought to the surface and now resides at The Mary Rose Museum, located at Historical Dockyards in Portsmouth.

        Sketches of Costume by Coke Smyth

      [London], 1842. Two albums of original watercolors by noted English painter Coke Smyth (1808-1882), a vibrant series of historical costume designs, consulted by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert for inspiration as they planned their Bal Costumé of May 1842, with several annotations by Victoria and an entire page of original sketches by Albert. Smyth's close connection with the the first Earl of Durham, Governor of Canada, and the recent success of his ambitious color-plate book Sketches in the Canadas, most likely account for the attention shown him by Victoria and Albert as they planned the first of three elaborate costume balls at Buckingham Palace. The 125 costume paintings in these albums are strikingly dynamic and fresh, without sacrificing attention to historical detail. The subjects are primarily European, with the second volume devoted largely to English costume, but there are almost two dozen examples of Greek, Turkish, and Arab dress as well, likely inspired by Smyth's journey to Constantinople in the 1830s. Each portrait is captioned with a date and reign ("Elizabethan 1558.1603"), or, in the case of foreign subjects, occupation and region ("Itinerant Merchant / Constantinople"). Occasionally, Smyth provides direct views of historical monarchs, reproducing Moro's portrait of Queen Mary and Van Dyck's portrait of Charles I. Three of the English watercolors in the second volume are annotated in pencil by the queen. On plate 1, a noblewoman during the reign of Richard III, Victoria has written: "This will do." On plate 2, a nobleman in late fourteenth-century dress, she notes: "this also," with a note in a second hand dating the queen's note "May 1842." On plate 59, a scene of two late fourteenth-century women in elaborate headgear, Victoria has made a note that appears to read: "headdress longer." These three plates are penciled with Xs, as are several others from the same historical period, which may indicate the interest of the Queen. On a blank leaf mounted at the end of the second volume, Prince Albert has sketched three designs for a costume based on Edward III's effigy in Westminster Abbey. The largest of these sketches is a recognizable half-length portrait of Albert himself wearing Edward's crown. The other two, less detailed, are outlines of the full-length costume and the king's head and crown. Albert has sketched some individual details as well, such as the knot on Edward's belt. While the royal party did not reproduce in detail any of the historical costume designs proposed by Smyth, their interest in his Plantagenet images appears to have guided their final choices. Victoria dressed as Queen Philippa, and Albert as King Edward III (in the costume he himself had sketched), accompanied by members of the royal household in late fourteenth-century dress. Smyth was commissioned to document the costumes at the ball, and those drawings were published in a commemorative folio of hand-colored lithographs entitled Souvenir of the Bal Costumé, given by Her Most Gracious Majesty Queen Victoria, at Buckingham Palace, May 12, 1842. The Drawings from the Original Dresses by Mr. Coke Smyth. This volume, with text by antiquarian James Planché, was published in 1843 by London printmakers Colnaghi, who also bound Smyth's watercolor albums. After the publication of Souvenir of the Bal Costumé, Smyth pitched his own idea for a color-plate book, to be entitled The Costume of the Principal Nations of Europe from the Beginning of the 13th to the End of the 17th Century, based on these historical costume watercolors. Colnaghi agreed to Smyth's proposal, and issued a prospectus, but did not attract enough subscribers to make the expensive project viable. These albums remain the only record of Smyth's vision. Individual examples of Smyth's work are found in the Public Archives of Canada (Ottawa); the John Ross Robertson Collection in the Metropolitan Toronto Central Library; the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto; the Department of Prints and Drawings in the British Museum, London; the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; the National Portrait Gallery, London, and the National Gallery of Scotland, Edinburgh. A stunning group of original costume watercolors by an accomplished English painter, annotated by Victoria and Albert, a remarkable artifact of the Victorian era. Two folio volumes measuring 11.5 x 12.25 inches, original full green morocco, boards with multiple rules in blind and gilt, cornerpieces stamped in blind, raised bands with ornamental gilt ruling, compartments quadruple-ruled in gilt, cream coated endpapers, all edges gilt.

Annotations by Queen Victoria on at least three plates, and one full-page group of pencil sketches by Prince Albert (including a self-portrait) mounted at the end of the second volume. Bindings signed "P & D Colnaghi & Co. Pall Mall East." Foxing to endpapers and some mounts (affecting only a few plates), offsetting to blank pages facing watercolors, light shelfwear to bindings.
