         THE WORLD turned UPSIDE-DOWN Illustrated by Wonderful Prints.

      No imprint or date, but this title was advertised by W. D. Darton jun., and W. & T. Darton in 1806.This copy is watermarked 1805. [16] leaves, printed on one side only, each with a copper-engraving and verse below. Bound in recent quarter red sheep over marbled boards with vellum tips. 123 x 109 mm. The original pictorial pink wrappers, a little cut-down, are mounted on the front and rear pastedowns. The image is of a flying pig; the rear, Lambert of Leicester, 'dancing the tight rope.' First edition. In the second edition of 1809/10, the engraving of the butcher being bled by a sheep and a pig has been replaced by that of 'the bear turning showman'. Perhaps some parents complained at the brutality of the original image. Small tape repair to the blank verso of one leaf; few small marks; else a very good copy of this rare title. See Darton H1610.

         Vida de J. J. Dessalines, Gefe de los Negros de Santo Domingo; con notas muy circunstanciadas sobre el origen, character y atrocidades de los principals gefes de aquellos rebeldes desde el principio de la insurreccion en 1791

      1806 - The first successful slave-revolt in the Americas, through the life of its leaders. 1806. Mexico. Mariano de Zuniga y Ontiveros. Complete of the frontispiece and 9 full-page plates. Contemporary –possibly Mexican- mottled calf, spine flat, tooled in gilt. A large copy, in it’s original condition, with only minor spotting and marginal soiling to a couple leaves –evidently from an early reader passing the pages. 6,500 $ First Mexican edition, and first edition published in America. An amazing book, illustrated with visually striking plates rich in iconography, portraying both the leaders of the black slaves revolt -Toussaint, Christophe, Dessalines, etc.-, the coronation of the Emperor of Haiti and finally the horrors of the revolt (including a visually striking image of a woman attacked in the field). The insurrection, against the French rule, is here portrayed in the harshest possible way, not acknowledging the stroke against colonialism preponderant in the 19th century. The first edition was printed in Paris, in 1804, followed by a second of Madrid in 1805, this is a rare book, and a curious Mexican imprint. The revolt lead to the making of the second constitution of an Independent State in the Americas, only preceded by that of the United Stated, and was the first successful slave revolution in the Americas.

         Nuevos Paseos Históricos, artísticos, económico-políticos, por Granada y sus contornos (refundidos y aumentados por Simon de Argote) 3 tomos

      1806 - Rarísima primera edición Tres tomos (Todo lo publicado)El III tomo, rarísimo. Granada: en la Imprenta de D. Francisco Gomez Espinosa de los Monteros. [1806?] El lugar de la impresión consta en el tomo 2º y 3º, el tomo 1º sin lugar y con el mismo impresor. Fecha de impresión de tomo I y II tomada de: Aguilar Piñal. Bib. S.XVIII, v. 1, 2395. 8º, ejemplar preparado para encuadernar, con estuche y caja de conservación moderna. Tomo I: 5 hs. + 300 p. Tomo II: 123 + 197 p. ; Tomo III: 112 p. Contexto histórico y referencias a la obra: “. El 26 de abril de 1806 la Gazeta de Madrid anunciaba la publicación de dos volúmenes de los Nuevos paseos históricos, artísticos, económico-políticos, por Granada y sus contornos. Estos dos volúmenes recogían sólo la Alhambra, monumento que «ha excitado la curiosidad de los viageros inteligentes», a decir del anuncio de la Gazeta. Constituían el comienzo de una amplia obra que debía abarcar toda la ciudad de Granada. Años después se publicó, como luego veremos, un tercer volumen que completaba la descripción de la Alhambra, y nunca llegaron a ver la luz los prometidos tomos que abordarían el resto de la ciudad. El autor era Simón de Argote, doctor en jurisprudencia, caballero síndico, miembro de la Sociedad Económica de Amigos del País y hombre que gozaba de una buena posición económica. Los Nuevos paseos constituyeron un salto cualitativo en la historiografía sobre la Alhambra, de la cual se habían realizado descripciones generalmente breves y fragmentarias desde el siglo XVI, y superaban con creces al más ambicioso trabajo hasta entonces publicado, con el cual rivalizaban abiertamente, los Paseos por Granada y sus contornos (1764-1767) de Juan Velázquez de Echeverría. Sin embargo, la prometedora trayectoria de Simón de Argote se iba a ver truncada por la Guerra de la Independencia, pues su afrancesamiento le empujó hacia el bando que, tras iniciales triunfos, iba a ser finalmente derrotado. Durante estos convulsos años de guerra Argote logró entregar a la imprenta un tercer volumen de sus Nuevos paseos. Este volumen, muy breve, estaba escrito en 1807, pues Argote alude en él a «los terremotos del año pasado», que son los que sacudieron la ciudad en octubre de 1806. Según Richard Ford el libro apareció en el verano de 1812 con una breve tirada, pero ésta se perdió casi en su totalidad cuando en septiembre se retiraron las tropas francesas de Granada y, temeroso de sus compatriotas, Simón de Argote se marchó con ellas. Richard Ford conoció a Argote dos décadas después y tuvo con él una larga conversación. Un desencantado Argote le confesó que nunca había visto la edición del tercer tomo de sus Nuevos paseos, porque estaba en imprenta cuando tuvo que evacuar la ciudad y los pocos ejemplares editados se perdieron. Todo parece indicar que en el último tramo de su vida Argote era una persona acabada intelectualmente y probablemente arruinada por los avatares de la derrota Josefina. Al menos un ejemplar de ese tercer volumen se salvó, y fue reeditado en facsímil en 1985 con una breve introducción de Antonio Domínguez Ortiz. No sabemos si Argote tenía preparados el resto de los volúmenes que completarían su visión de Granada.”.

(die Original-Umschläge mit eingebunden). Lentner 4128 (unvollständig); "Selten". Engelmann 324; Cartographia Bavariae 6.5 und 15.2: "Ein Meisterwerk". ADB Bd. XXVIII, S. 536: Sein [Riedls] originellstes Werk". Nicht bei Pfister. - Erste Ausgabe. - Der Atlasband enthält die ersten drei Lieferungen. Die Tafeln zeigen den Lauf der Isar (2), Donau (6), Loisach (2), Amper (1) und Inn (1), dann folgen die großen Seen (Ammersee, Chiemsee, Walchensee mit Kochelsee, Tegernsee mit Schliersee und Starnberger See, insgesamt 5 Tafeln) und die hydrographischen Karten 2-4 (das erste Blatt fehlt, da es der 4. nicht mehr erschienenen Lieferung beiliegen sollte). Ferner enthalten sind eine Ansicht der Isar-Brücke in München und 2 Entwürfe für sogenannte "Sprengbrücken". - Die beiden prächtigen Aquatinta-Tafeln zeigen die Gedenktafel und das Löwenmonument zwischen Bad Abbach und Kelheim, sie sind bereits 1803 entstanden, aber erst 1806 mit dem Strom-Atlas herausgegeben worden. - Die von Johan Carl Schleich (1759-1842) gestochenen Karten sind von größter Akkuratesse und genügen gleichzeitig höchsten ästhetischen Ansprüchen. - Einband etwas bestoßen, der Rücken stellenweise lädiert. Teils leicht wasserrandig, sonst sehr gut erhalten und äußerst breitrandig. Beigebunden die Inhaltsverzeichnisse der drei Lieferungen. - Von den geplanten fünf Lieferungen erschienen nur drei. Der Atlasband so wie er hier vorliegt komplett und sehr selten! Die "Hydrographische Karte von Baiern", die 1807 auch als separate Veröffentlichung in 4 Blättern erschien, ist die erste genaue Darstellung des Gewässernetzes Bayerns. Sie ist seit Apian die erste auf genaueren Vermessungen beruhende, gedruckte und damit der Öffentlichkeit zugängliche Karte von Bayern. Riedl hat mit seiner Karte über ihren eigentlichen Zweck hinaus - wahrscheinlich unbewußt - für eine längeren Zeitraum eine wichtige Basiskarte für Folgeprodukte zur Verfügung gestellt (vgl. "Vierhundert Jahre Mercator. Vierhundert Jahre Atlas", Finsterwalder S. 105ff und K 9.2). First edition. - Only slightly waterstained here and there, otherwise very well preserved, extremely wide-margined and with the tables of contents of the three parts mounted on pink paper. - Contemporary half calf (spine here and there defective) with bound-in original wrappers.

      - [6]-50-[5] pp. Paris, Courcier, An 1806, in-8, [6]-50-[5] pp, veau tabac de l'époque, dos lisse orné de fleurons Directoire, roulette de grecques en encadrement des plats, pièce de titre verte, tranches marbrées, Nouvelle édition, revue, corrigée et augmentée par l'auteur de deux leçons supplémentaires : il s'agit en fait de la première édition en librairie de cet ouvrage qui fut publié, en 1801, dans le Journal de l'École Polytechnique. Joseph-Louis Lagrange (1736-1813) avait donné en 1797 un ouvrage sur la théorie des fonctions analytiques. Les leçons présentées ici, avaient été rédigées pour les commenter et les compléter. Cet ouvrage est fondamental : selon Bell, "ces travaux ne résident pas dans leur essence mathématicienne, mais dans l'impulsion qu'ils donnèrent à Cauchy et autres pour construire un calcul différentiel et intégral satisfaisant". Cachet gras de libraire parisien. Bon exemplaire, bien complet du catalogue du libraire. Manque de papier dans la marge de la p. 193, sans atteinte au texte, petite annotation au titre. Légers frottement au dos. DSB VII, 570 ; Honeyman 1884 ; Sotheran I, 2374 ; Riccardi I, 4-5 (ne cite que l'éd. de 1808). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Standing Orders in Annapolis Royal Manuscript Diary [British Army in Canada]

      1806. 1st Edition. Soft Cover. [An officers notebook including various standing orders, mess rules, pay rosters and receipts for disbursements relating to the 66th Berkshire Foot in Canada, and the 62nd Wiltshire Foot elsewhere]. [Annapolis Royal, Halifax, England and elsewhere]. [s.n., 1799-1806]. Oblong 7 x 4-1/4 inches. 44 sheets with 88pp unnumbered with occasional evidence of excised leaves, the odd blank. Interleaved throughout with blotting paper. Contemporary limp reverse calf, with the attractive printed label 'Sold by John A. Burton, Military Stationer, No. 2, Barrack-Street, (Opposite the Fountain), Dublin' to FEP. With the ink inscriptions of 'R. Lloyd. Lieu. 66th Regiment Sept. 26 '97' and 'T.S. Lyle, Lieut. 66th, Port au Prince' to REP. A miscellaneous military notebook in the possession at least one officer serving in the 66th Berkshire Foot during its service in Canada, with 23pp of 'Standing orders' for the 66th regiment while at Annapolis Royal (Nova Scotia), and several notes of disbursements and receipts of monies, largely 1799/1800, in Halifax (Nova Scotia). The inscription of 'S.S. Lyle, Lieut. 66th, Port au Prince' suggests that the notebook was perhaps purchased from an Irish stationer prior to the 66th's short service in Haiti, 1796-8. Later notes (dated 1802 and 1806) include, rates of full and half pay, mess rules in Jersey and reference to the activities of the 62nd Wiltshire Foot. R. Lloyd and T.S. Lyle, who both inscribed this volume and are presumably likely candidates for ownership, are listed as Lieutenants in the 66th Foot in the 1800 Army List. The 66th (Berkshire) Regiment of Foot was deployed to moved to Nova Scotia in early 1799 and on to Newfoundland in May 1800 before returning home in October 1802 and again to Canada in August 1827 before returning home in October 1840 The 66th Berkshire Foot served in the West Indies and Canada during the early years of the Napoleonic wars, returning to England in October 1802.

         A Father’s Memoirs of his Child.

      London: printed for Longman by T. Bensley, 1806. 8vo, iv, xlviii, 172 pp. With a frontispiece by Blake engraved by Cromek, and three plates (one folding). Original (remainder?) binding of pebbled dark green cloth, red label lettered in gilt. A little worn, upper joint neatly repaired, slight marginal soiling within. Very good. First edition. Malkin knew Blake well and in the long preface he devotes 24 pages to an account of his friend’s life and genius, the first recorded account of Blake by a contemporary. The text of this section was largely obtained from conversations with Blake himself. The biographical account of Blake and his poetry (pages xviii-xli) are described by Keynes as “the earliest available... obtained from Blake himself”. The text includes the first typographic printing of the poems “Laughing Song”, “The Divine Image”, “Holy Thursday”, “I loved the Jocund Dance” and an interesting variant in the text of “The Tyger”. The child was Malkin’s son, apparently an infant prodigy who died at the age of seven. Bentley, Blake Books, p. 18 (a good note on the book) and #482.

         The New Jamaica Almanack, and Register, for the Year of our Lord 1806

      Stevenson and Smith, Kingston 1806 - 184, [16]pp. The calendar interleaved with blank, plus additional blanks in rear. Contemporary green wallet-style morocco Early Jamaica almanac, including an early Jewish calendar. Some early Jamaica almanacs, like the present, include a page showing the Jewish calendar, which "would seem to be an indication of the importance of Jewish residents in the eyes of Christian Jamaicans" (B. W. Korn, "The Haham DeCordova of Jamaica," in: American Jewish Archives 18:2 (Nov. 1966)). These Jamaican calendars represent some of the earliest appearances of Hebrew font in the Western Hemisphere, in a publication intended specifically for Jews. Earlier works with Hebrew type, such as Judah Monis's Hebrew Grammar, were intended for a Gentile audience. Beyond the calendar, this almanac is filled with information about the colony, including pages devoted to each parish with details on population (including slaves), public office holders, court sessions, etc.

        Original and Rare Special Issue of the London Gazette, Being a Primary Source Admiralty Dispatch, to Announce the Successful and Sudden Battle of San Domingo.

      Bristol, 23 March 1806: Rudhall & Gutch, 1806. Original and rare special issue of the London Gazette, printed and published by Rudhall & Gutch at 15 Small-Street in Bristol for Felix Farley's Journal Office, being an important dispatch from the Admiralty to announce the successful and sudden Battle of San Domingo which had erupted on 6 February, initiated by a British fleet and resulting in a notable assault and the capture of a notable French warship and her crew. 8vo. Single leaf, printed recto only, measuring approximately 20 x 31,5 cm. Some creasing, otherwise in very good condition. News of utmost significance and worthy of immediate release to the public - this gazette was printed the very same day that Commander Cochrane landed in England with the official despatches in hand! A "Gazette Extraordinary" is a special edition deemed to require additional gravitas to reflect the importance of the event, such as a declaration of war, a conclusive battle such as the one described in the present issue, the accession of a monarch to the throne, or the like. Led by British Vice-Admiral Duckworth, the decisive single day battle, brisk and expeditious, was for the British Empire a victorious engagement. The victory was celebrated in Britain and across the Empire, particularly in the Caribbean where rumours of Leissègues' presence had stifled trade and caused panic among the merchant houses of the West Indies. .
