        Petticoat Loose: A Fragmentary "Tale Of the Castle" by Peter Pindar [John Wolcot]

      London: J.J. Stockdale, 1812. First edition. leather_bound. Full tan calf. Aeg. Very good. 135 pages. 28 x 22 cm. Four engraved hand-colored plates by Rowlandson. Albert M. Cohn's copy with his armorial bookplate front cover pastedown. John Wolcot was blind by the year 1812, the letter perhaps dictated. "When blindness overtook him, he displayed a stoical good humour which makes us regret that a musical, artistic man, of a `kind and hearty disposition,' played so scurvy a literary role. This work is a prose poem, CHEL. Vol. 11, pp.37-38. Notes, "Pindar's strength lies in his power of realising for his reader a comic situation; polished epigram .....He loves to slip one of two sly colloquialisms into verses written in the formal eighteenth century style, and, thus bring out the broad fun of his conceptions." Pindar satirized Dr. Johnson and Boswell as well as George III. Robert Burns received a copy of Pindar's works from George Thomson, and held him in esteem. Not in TOOLEY. Plates and text clean and bright with plate offsetting to blank tissue guard. Raised bands, spine panels richly gilt in floral motifs, two maroon spine labels lettered in gilt, triple gilt cover fillets, inner dentelles, rubbing to corners and joints.

        Autograph Letter Signed, "N Webster jun[ior]," to bookseller Daniel Steele of Albany, NY requesting payment for the sale of a Dictionary

      New Haven, Ct 1812 - 1 p. pen and ink with integral address leaf and docketing. 4to. I received from you last summer . 15 dol'rs on . the Dictionaries. Reading in part:"I received from you last summer by your brother, 15 dol'rs on acct. of the Dictionaries. I understand you sent some of them - I believe 50 - to Mr. Seward of Utica. If so, you retain, if I recollect right, 150 copies - or 250. I wish for a settlement - if the books are sold - you deducting expenses & your commission. At any rate I wish for an amount of sales - & any balance in your hands. I sold the books at 42 cents - 42 dollars the hundred - at the time of publication. [A]s I have waited so long, if any profit has accrued, I ought to receive it. I have drawn an order by Mr. Platt ?."Webster most likely refers to his Compendious Dictionary of the English Language, printed in 1806 in an edition of 7,000 copies and priced $1.50. It was Webster's first dictionary and its publication marked a turning point in Webster's life, as he would devote the next twenty plus years to working on his historic American Dictionary (1828). If Webster's efforts to collect his profits don't come across here as urgent, it is likely because his Speller, Grammar, and Reader had long since been mainstays in American classrooms, and earned for him a comfortable living. Daniel Steele was among the earliest booksellers in Albany and "kept the largest and best assortment of books outside of New York City" (Howell and Tenney, Bi-centennial History of Albany, p. 650). 1 p. pen and ink with integral address leaf and docketing. 4to

        Mûriers et Vers-a-Soie

      4 p.l., 74, [2] pp. 8vo, cont. green straight-grained sheep maroquiné, sides decorated in gilt, flat spine gilt, a.e.g. Cuneo: P. Rossi, 1812. First edition and a very rare provincial imprint. Ghiliossi, a resident of Cuneo in the Piedmont of northern Italy, was active in developing the agriculture and industries of the Cuneo area. The silk industry began to develop in the region in the 16th century and, by the early 19th century, became the predominant commercial activity. In this work, Ghiliossi provides an excellent history of the growth of industry in Cuneo. He then goes on to the process of sericulture from the rearing of silkworms to cocoons and then the manufacture of silk. The development of the industry was greatly encouraged by the government and there is much information on the laws and regulations which governed the manufacture and trade in silk. Ghiliossi describes a number of processes which he claims are unique in the region. He also gives a history of the early silk spinning and weaving machinery powered by water. Fine and handsome copy. Corners a bit rubbed. Bookplate of Maurice Desgeorge of Lyon. ❧ Hagen, I, p. 279.

        Fabulous Albumen Photograph depicting Richardson and his great-grandson as they appeared in the Statue of Liberty Parade in New York

      PATRIOTIC & ECCENTRIC COLLECTOR OF AMERICANA RODE WASHINGTON'S CARRIAGE IN THE STATUE OF LIBERTY PARADE. 7 ½ x 9 ½ inches. Photograph by Oscar G. Mason. Very good condition, with deep rich tones. Archivally framed. Born in England in 1812, Benjamin Richardson became an American citizen in 1839. In 1849 he came to San Francisco during the Gold Rush and he bought two waterfront lots at the first sale of real estate held in San Francisco. Richardson later sold these lots to the railroads for $400,000 and moved to New York. One of the great eccentrics of his day, Richardson was instantly recognizable by his waist-length flowing silvery beard and his 210-pound, five feet six inch frame. The bearded eccentric tirelessly pursued and surrounded himself with relics of American history including Lincoln relics and Washington's carriage, which he rode in the Statue of Liberty procession. This wonderful photograph shows Richardson and his great-grandson as they appeared in the Statue of Liberty Celebration parade. This photograph is accompanied by the sheet music of Richardson's song, Uncle Ben's Liberty Celebration Song which used the photograph as an illustration.

        Jacques-Louis David admire le talent de son élève.

      - 1 lettre autographe signée 1 In-4 29/06/1812 Adresse au dos. bon Jacque-Louis David "1er peintre de l'Empereur" - comme il aime à le rappeler sous sa signature, admirant le talent de son jeune élève Bourgeois, intervient auprès de son ami, le graveur Laurent, pour qu'il le perfectionne dans son art en lui faisant réaliser un portrait de Raphaël, dans le cadre de la monumentale publication "Galerie du Muséum". "Permettés moi de vous recommander le jeune Bourgeois mon élève qui vient de gagner samedi dernier le premier prix de gravure ; quoi que nous sachions l'un et l'autre que l'on n'est pas encore un Edling ou un Gérard Audran quand on a obtenu ce prix, néanmoins je puis vous assurer que ce jeune élève est né pour faire un homme, il a la bonne volonté pour le devenir, il a du talent et il est surtout grand travailleur et aimable en affaire. Ainsi je vous le répète, Monsieur, que vous m'obligerés infiniment de lui procurer quelque chose à faire dans votre collection, il serait très propre, par exemple, à graver soit un portrait de Raphaël, soit de quelqu'autre grand maître. Ce n'est pas l'intérêt qu'il envisage, c'est de s'avancer, il se contentera de peu, et surtout de profiter de vos bons soins. Venés voir un matin à la maison un dessin qu'il vient de faire sous mes yeux, vous partagerés, j'en suis sûr, mon contentement". [David eut trois élèves portant le nom de Bourgeois : le peintre Constant Bourgeois (1767/1841), son fils Amédée (1798/1837) et Albert Paul Bourgeois (mort en 1812), graveur et peintre de grand talent qui a en particulier réalisé le tableau représentant la mort du maréchal Lannes, à Essling, aujourd'hui au château de Versailles ; c'est probablement de ce dernier dont il s'agit ici].

        Conrad Malte-Brun réédite son Précis de géographie.

      - 2 Manuscrit autographe et lettre autographe signée. 6 in-folio et in-4 [1812] Avec ratures et corrections. Les pages du manuscrit sont constituées de feuillets collés les uns aux autres. Après l'immense succès rencontré par son Précis de géographie universelle, Conrad Malte-Brun et son éditeur publient une seconde édition augmentée d'un atlas. Malte-Brun en explique la philosophie et développe, très en détails, ses grandes innovations. Il adresse des notes explicatives. «Elles sont barbouillées à la hâte ; mais les idées sont mesurées et muries par une longue réflexion ; elles ne vous compromettent pas. Je vous prie de les lire avec attention et d'en faire usage le plus tôt possible». Un article va paraître dans la Gazette de France et «Walckenaer parle de l'atlas avec estime». Il demande de le citer pour sa carte de Corse et de l'Italie antique, et ses travaux sur l'Egypte ancienne. «Je ne manquerai pas de recommander Thornton à la bienveillance du public ; je renforcerai le bien que j'avais à en dire pour vous faire plaisir et malgré la conduite de M. Dentu qui continue avec ardeur à intriguer contre mes ouvrages, mais sans aucun succès». Dans les notes qu'il joint, il met en avant les mérites de son travail, en particulier de l'atlas : «Il me semble que les découvertes ou les corrections entièrement neuves qui n'avaient paru dans aucun atlas ni dans aucune carte, méritent d'être signalées». Il commente ainsi longuement les nouveautés les plus significatives de son atlas qui «n'est plus un accessoire, mais est devenu lui-même un ouvrage important et digne d'un examen attentif». Géographe, fondateur de la Société de géographie. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Petticoat Loose: A Fragmentary "Tale Of the Castle" by Peter Pindar [John Wolcot]

      London: J.J. Stockdale, 1812. First edition. leather_bound. Full tan calf. Aeg. Very good. 135 pages. 28 x 22 cm. Four engraved hand-colored plates by Rowlandson. Albert M. Cohn's copy with his armorial bookplate front cover pastedown. John Wolcot was blind by the year 1812, the letter perhaps dictated. "When blindness overtook him, he displayed a stoical good humour which makes us regret that a musical, artistic man, of a `kind and hearty disposition,' played so scurvy a literary role. This work is a prose poem, CHEL. Vol. 11, pp.37-38. Notes, "Pindar's strength lies in his power of realising for his reader a comic situation; polished epigram .....He loves to slip one of two sly colloquialisms into verses written in the formal eighteenth century style, and, thus bring out the broad fun of his conceptions." Pindar satirized Dr. Johnson and Boswell as well as George III. Robert Burns received a copy of Pindar's works from George Thomson, and held him in esteem. Not in TOOLEY. Plates and text clean and bright with plate offsetting to blank tissue guard. Raised bands, spine panels richly gilt in floral motifs, two maroon spine labels lettered in gilt, triple gilt cover fillets, inner dentelles, rubbing to corners and joints.

They often featured attractive tooled morocco or worked metal bindings, and accompanying cases, as in this example. REFERENCE: Welsh, A Bibliography of Miniature Books (1470-1965), No. 4615.

        Natural History, General and Particular, by the Count de Buffon, illustrated with above six hundred copper plates. The History of Man and Quadrupeds; translated by William Smellie, member fo the Antiquarian and Royal Societies of Edinburgh. A New Edition carefully corrected and considerably enlarged by many additional articles, notes and plates. And some account of the life of M. de Buffon. By Willima Wood, F. L. S.

      London Printed for T. Cadell and W. Davies 1812 - 20 vols., over 600 copper plate engravings, light age-toning to extremities, some very occasional, light spotting, else near fine, near-contemporary crushed green morocco gilt, maroon letting pieces, marbled endpapers and edges, generally rubbed, occasional soiling, spines darkened, some ends chipped but still a handsome set and internally very good. "Ranks still as one of the most important of all bird books from the collector's point of view" (Fine Bird Books). There is a table of contents at the beginning of each volume listing species/types of bird, each of which has a written description, followed by exquisite hand-coloured plates of the described birds. These engravings being by Francois-Nicolas Martinet who had also collaborated on the L'Ornithologie by Mathurin Jacques Brisson in 1760, as well as in the Encyclopaedia of Diderot. By the end of his lifetime he was so experienced in producing ornithological engravings that he published his own book of them. He was celebrated for the realism with which he drew, as contemporaries and predecessors lacked proportion when drawing birds, which made their actual identification for an amateur ornithologist extremely difficult. Buffon was an aristocratic eighteenth century naturalist, mathematician, and biologist. He was appointed keeper of the "Jardin du Roi", later the "Jardin des Plantes", and the collection connected with it, the "Cabinet du Roi" in 1739. He augmented the collection of birds exponentially, increasing it to more than 800 species gathered from all four corners of the globe. In 1765 at Buffon's direction, Martinet began drawing and painting the collection and engraved the plates under the supervision of Edme Daubenton. In 1770 the first volume devoted to birds was published: "Its popularity was primarily assured by Buffon's great literary ability which allowed him to present even the most difficult topics in such sparkling style, in such a universally understandable form, and so fascinating a manner that, as was said, even ladies found amusement in reading about them. The special merit of the work is principally due to the fact that it was the first to create interest in Nature and natural history in wide circles" (Anker). Buffon's "Oiseaux" was ultimately issued in four formats: the large and ordinary paper folio sets were issued with hand-colored plates by and after Francois Martinet. Quarto and twelve-mo issues were also produced, illustrated with a series of black and white plates drawn by de Seve. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Wissenschaft der Logik. 2 Bde (3 Bücher). Erster Band. Die objective Logik. [Zwei Bücher] (Erster Band. Zweytes Buch: Die Lehre vom Wesen). (Zweiter Band:) Wissenschaft der subjectiven Logik oder die Lehre vom Begriff.

      Nürnberg, Johann Leonhard Schrag, 1812-1813-1816. 3 vols. 8vo. 3 contemporary uniform (!) marbled paper bindings with hand-written paper title-labels to spines (hand-writing not legible). Very minor, excellently executed and barely noticeable professional restorations to a couple of hinges and corners. An excellent set, also internally very nice, clean, and fresh, wih only very minor occasional brownspotting. Old owner's inscription in the form of a poem and an old, vague owner's stamp (Giulini) to front free end-paper of volume one. Same stamp to title-page and verso of title-page respectively of volumes 2 and 3. Old owner's name neatly removed from title-page of volume 3.XIV (= title-page + Vorrede + Inhalt), XXVIII (= Einleitung), 334; VI (= title-page + Inhalt), 282; (2 = general title-page stating second volume of Wissenschaft der Logik), X (= title-page, Vorbericht + Inhalt), 403, (1) pp. ¶ The scarce first editions of all three volumes that together constitute Hegel's second main work, his "Science of Logic", also called his "Greater Logic" (as opposed to the Logic section of the Encyclopaedia), in which logic is seen as the science of pure thought, concerning the principles by which concepts are formed, and therefore also as that which reveals to us the principles of pure knowing. THIS IS THE RAREST OF ANY OF HEGEL'S MAJOR WORKS TO FIND COMPLETE - IT IS A TRUE SCARCITY TO FIND A SET IN UNIFORM, CONTEMPORARY BINDINGS. Hegel's "Logic" is begun five years after his first major work, the "Phänomenologie des Geistes", and the five years which Hegel has had to develop his philosophy in the meantime are clearly reflected in his monumental second masterpiece. The "Logic" can be regarded as a more systematic and well organized epistemological and ontological work. It is in this groundbreaking work of German Idealism that Hegel develops his famous dialectic, which comes to determinate all later reading of his philosophy. It is Hegel's dialectic theory later condensed as "thesis-antithesis-synthesis" that is developed in this main work of 19th century philosophy. The dialectical process constitutes the movement of thought and consciousness, from basic to complex ideas, and thus demonstrates how the categorical infrastructure of thought can be laid bare by thought itself alone. With this work, Hegel is considered as having created a revolution in the understanding of Logic, because he widens it from being merely concerned with formal rules of propositions to including all of humanity. He elaborates the laws that govern the development of human practice, and as a consequence, he also uncovers the objective laws that govern the entire objective material world. Throughout the 20th century, Hegel's logical philosophy was largely neglected, but the last 40-50 years have shown a revived interest in this most fundamental of works, which is of the greatest importance for the understanding of his systematic thought.Hegel himself considered his "Logic" to be of the utmost importance, and he kept revising it throughout the years. It is very difficult to find a set of all three volumes in first editions.

      Paris: J.H. Stône for [text] F. Schoell or [atlas] G. Dufour & Cie, 1812. 6 volumes (text: 5 vols., 8vo [8 x 5 inches]; atlas: large folio [21 1/2 x 17 inches]). Text: folding engraved map in the rear of vol. 1, folding plate in vol. 2. errata in rear of vol. 5 and publisher's ads in rear of vols. 4 and 5. Atlas: on paper guards throughout: letterpress half-title, title page and 4pp. description of the 'Cartes Géographiques et Physiques contenus dans l'Atlas Mexicain'. 19 engraved sheets with maps, cross-sections or plates (9 sheets double-page), consisting of one engraved map on 2 double-page sheets, 1 double-page sheet with three maps on it, 1 single-page with eight maps on it, 1 single page with one map and four graphs on it, 4 single-page maps, 3 double-page maps, 4 double-page geographical cross-section profiles [one printed in brown], 2 single-page views printed in brown, 1 single-page plate of diagrams [complete]. Text in contemporary dark green morocco backed blue/black marbled paper covered boards, atlas bound uniform to style, flat spines giltA fine set of Humboldt's work on New Spain: a founding work in the fields of political economy and economic geography and considered by Howes to be "of superlative California importance."Humboldt was described by Dibdin as "the most illustrious traveller of his day." With the support of the Spanish Prime Minister, Humboldt managed to gain permission to enter the Spanish colonies of Central and South America, which were effectively closed at the time. He set off with the French botanist Bonpland from Marseilles in 1799, and spent five years travelling through Central and South America, during which time he covered some 6000 miles. He then returned to Europe and spent the next twenty-three years recording his experiences, observations and collections in a series of spectacular works. The Essai Politique is a complete work in itself, but also forms the third part of Humboldt and Bonpland's Voyage. In the present work Humboldt describes northern New Spain, particularly Mexico and the northern provinces, including California and the American Southwest: Becker calls it "detailed and thorough, containing much data that had never before appeared in print.""Nothing seems too vast, too varied, too wonderful, or too minute, for the keen eye, penetrating intellect, and unwearied exertions of this extraordinary man. A botanist, zoologist, statistician and philosopher, the genius of this great writer seems to have been peculiarly fitted for surveying the varieties and immensity of the physical world; and he accordingly takes the foremost rank of all the travellers, dead or living" (Dibdin).The accompanying Atlas... is regarded as one of the seminal cartographic works of Western Americana. The most important map is Humboldt's great "Carte Generale du Royaume de la Nouvelle Espagne," originally executed by Humboldt during his stay in Mexico in 1803-4, and covering two large folio double sheets. It extends from the "comte de Natchitoches" in the Texas country on the east to the head of the Gulf of California in the west, and begins just south of El Paso in the north, extending south to the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. Carl Wheat calls it a 'truly magnificent cartographic achievement,' and notes that, 'for the area of the American West which it included it was undoubtedly the most important and accurate map that had yet appeared' and concludes that, before the explorations of Lewis and Clark, Humboldt's maps were in the first rank of western cartography. Schwartz and Ehrenberg state that it remained 'the standard map of the Great Basin region until Fremont's explorations 35 years later.' Thomas Streeter discusses the map at great length, concluding that "it is without question the best representation of Texas that had thus far appeared." It is certainly one of the foundation maps for Texas and the Southwest. Besides the large map, there is a double-sheet map of the whole North American continent south of 42° latitude which reiterates Humboldt's western cartography on a larger scale, and three important maps for the Santa Fe trade illustrating the route from Mexico to Durango, Durango to Chihuahua, and Chihuahua to Santa Fe. Other maps illustrate the Valley of Mexico, and ports and routes in Mexico and across the Isthmus. The Atlas...concludes with a series of fine geological/physical profiles (one printed in brown), and two excellent views of volcanoes (also in brown).The atlas was issued with a two volume quarto text, but is here accompanied (as often) by the octavo text in five volumes, which is desirable as it contains an additional copy of Humboldt's seminal map.Cf.
