Blackstone, William  
Commentaries on the Laws of England (Four Volumes, Complete)
 Picture
Publisher: The Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1766-1769.
Very Good with no dust jacket. First Printing. Hard Cover Oxford: The Clarendon Press, 1766-1769. Four volumes uniformly bound in half calf over marbled boards, spines in six compartments separated by gilt borders, gilt titles and decoration on red and black labels in two compartments, volume numbers, gilt, in gilt borders in one compartment. Marbled endpapers. (iv), iv, 485, (i); (viii), 520, xix; viii, 455, xxvii; viii, 436, vii, (40) pp. Illustrated with two copperplate tables, Table of Consanguinity and fold-out Table of Descents in Volume Two. "Blackstone's great work on the laws of England is the extreme example of justification of an existing state of affairs by virtue of its history. Until the Commentaries, the ordinary Englishman had viewed the law as a vast, unintelligible and unfriendly machine. Blackstone's great achievement was to popularize the law and the traditions which had influenced its formation. He takes a delight in describing and defending as the essence of the constitution the often anomalous complexities which had grown into the laws of England over the centuries. But he achieves the astonishing feat of communicating this delight, and this is due to a style which is itself always lucid and graceful.". MIXED FIRST AND SECOND EDITIONS IN MATCHING BINDINGS. Volumes One and Two are Second Editions, Volumes Three and Four are First Editions. All volumes are in excellent condition. The front hinges are starting in volumes one and two. A former owner's name (John Black) is neatly written on each title page. The boards are all very lightly bumped. The hinges in volumes one and two have been professionally reinforced. Very light, mild foxing throughout. Both Tables are in excellent condition. VERY GOOD. 4to - over 9" - 12" tall

Clark, George Rogers; Milo Milton Quaife (ed)  
The Conquest of The Illinois

Publisher: The Lakeside Press / R. R. Donnelley & Sons, Chicago, 1920.
Very Good+ with no dust jacket. First Edition Thus. First Printing. Hard Cover Publisher's full green cloth, gilt lettering on spine, gilt border and publisher's medallion, gilt, on cover, t.e.g., fore-edge deckle. Illustrated with Tissue-Protected engraved portrait frontispiece. This is a reprint of the original journal of George Rogers Clark. Clark (1752-1818) was a surveyor, soldier, and militia officer from Virginia and the highest ranking American military officer on the northwestern frontier during the American Revolutionary War. He served as leader of the Kentucky (then part of Virginia) militia throughout much of the war. Clark is best known for his celebrated captures of Kaskaskia (1778) and Vincennes (1779) during the Illinois Campaign, which greatly weakened British influence in the Northwest Territory. Because the British ceded the entire Northwest Territory to the United States in the 1783 Treaty of Paris, Clark has often been hailed as the "Conqueror of the Old Northwest". Clark's military achievements all came before his 30th birthday. Afterwards he led militia in the opening engagements of the Northwest Indian War, but was accused of being drunk on duty. Despite his demand for a formal investigation into the accusations, he was disgraced and forced to resign. He left Kentucky to live on the Indiana frontier. Never fully reimbursed by Virginia for his wartime expenditures, Clark spent the final decades of his life evading creditors, and living in increasing poverty and obscurity. He was involved in two failed conspiracies to open the Spanish-controlled Mississippi River to American traffic. After suffering a stroke and the loss of his leg, Clark was aided in his final years by family members, including his younger brother William, one of the leaders of the Lewis and Clark Expedition. Clark died of a stroke on February 13, 1818. Head and heel of spine and corners have very slight light shelf-wear, gilt on spine and top edge is slightly dulled, else pristine, unmarked, tight, square and clean. VERY GOOD+. .

Gilpin, William , Illustrated by: Folding Maps  
Mission of the North American People, Geographical, Social, and Political. Illustrated By Six Charts Delineating the Physical Architecture and Thermal Laws of All Continents.

Publisher: J. B. Lippincott Company Philadelphia 1973.
A first edition of the "reproduction" of Gilpin's 1860 title, "The Central Gold Region. The Grain, Pastoral and Gold Regions of North America: Some New Views of Its Physical Geography, and Observations on the Pacific Railroad." In original dark green cloth covers with gilt stamped spine titles and decoration. 217 pages, with six large fold-out maps that include three of North America depicting some of Gilpin's rather fanciful theories of climate and geography, one illustrating the "system of the Parcs (sic) and the domestic relations of the Great Plains, the North American Andes, and the Pacific Maritime Front, " a map of the world, and one of the "System of the Parcs of Colorado." Included is a chapter on Gilpin's advocacy for a railway to the Pacific, experiences in the Mexican War, a chapter on the importance of Pike's Peak and Sierra San Juan (Gilpin was convinced that Denver would the hub of Western commerce), and topics suggested by the subjects of the maps. Gilpin's own history is controversial and fascinating, from his trip across the West with Fremont (when Giilpin suspected evidence of placer gold in Colorado), his tenure in Oregon's Willamette Valley and participation in obtaining provisional government status from the US Congress for the Oregon territory, his distinguished military career including Indian wars, his brief term as Governor of Colorado (he was dismissed by President Lincoln due to fiscal controversies), his career as an attorney, his prophecies regarding the importance of the American West..well. Quite a character who also produced a number of substantial books. This volume has some edgewear, with small areas of rub-through of the cloth and a slight cant due to the insertion of the maps. The maps themselves are in good condition, a few have a discolored strip along the text edge on the back of the map, not affecting maps themselves, several have small closed tears at the point of their attachment to the book, a couple with short spearation at fold line. All are bright and clean otherwise. There is a faint smoky odor: seems more like fireplace smoke than tobacco. but it's too faint and old to really tell. Overall a fascninating book by an interesting character on an unusual aspect of Western America exploration and expectation.collectible 5049 First Edition Thus No Dust Jacket (as issued) Hard Cover Very Good Condition 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall Collectibles

Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, The Astronomer-Poet of Persia Rendered into English Verse by Edward FitzGerald with an Accompaniment of Drawings by Elihu Vedder
 Picture
Publisher: Houghton, Mifflin & Company, Boston, 1884.
Near Fine with no dust jacket. First Edition Thus. First Printing. Hard Cover First, Limited Edition of 100 copies, of which this is No. 22, signed by Vedder, with ornamental title page and 56 magnificent full-page Illustrations. Bound in original brown flat-weave cloth over beveled boards; front cover with gilt lettering, dark brown-stamped ruled borders, symbolist design of vase, vine, swirl and stars, spine with gilt lettering and dark brown-stamped ruled borders and ornaments; gilt and dark brown embossed stamp on front cover, lower right 'V' ; slate coated endpapers; t.e.g., others untrimmed. Elephant Folio. Signed by Vedder on Limitation Page. In the ten months from May 1883 to March 1884, Elihu Vedder (1836-1923) completed a series of drawings in pencil, ink, chalk, and watercolor to accompany this 1884 edition of the Rubaiyat. All of these original drawings, which were proclaimed a masterwork of American art, were included in a special exhibition of "Elihu Vedder's Drawings for the Rubaiyat" at the National Museum of American Art in 1998. The exhibition also included two first edition printings of this Rubaiyat with Vedder's "accompaniments." Vedder's edition was an instant success, selling out only six days after its debut in Boston on November 8, 1884. With this Rubaiyat, Vedder set the standard for artist-designed books in America and England. Critics rushed to acclaim it as a masterwork. He died in Rome in 1923. [Mantle Fielding's Dictionary of American Painters, Sculptors & Engravers, p. 972] [Morris & Levin 92] [Potter 201]. An extremely rare, beautiful, large and heavy book.

Lilly, Joseph (ed)  
A Collection of Seventy-Nine Black-Letter Ballads and Broadsides Printed in the Reign of Queen Elizabeth between the Years 1559 and 1597

Publisher: Joseph Lilly, London, 1867.
Very Good with no dust jacket. First Printing. Hard Cover Original publisher's brown cloth, gilt lettering on spine, blind-stamped decorative front and rear panels, brown endpapers, fore and bottom edges deckle. Accompanied with an Introduction and Illustrative Notes. Four additional items are included with the book: (1) An autograph letter, signed, written on both sides of a sheet, from the publisher, Joseph Lilly, dated August 21, 1867, and sent from Covent Garden, explaining how he acquired the rights to the current book, as follows: "Dear Sir, I gave L750 for the folio volume of the Old Ballads & Broadsides, at the sale of the library of George Daniel Esq, at "Sotheby's" Auction Rooms, in July 1864. I do not know the date of Mr. Daniel's birth. He was about 75 years old at the time of his death. I think he was born in Newgate [or ?]. I think his father (or mother's) family was in the worsted trade. If I can get a portrait of him I will send it to you. Yours truly (signed) Joseph Lilly." (2) Another note is tipped-in to the front endpaper, in a different hand, as follows: "George Daniels Ballads | With autograph note of Mr. Lilly the publisher stating that he gave upwards of L700 for the original. [sic] and Scarce portrait, + short Memoir of Mr. Daniel __ - Only a comparative few copies printed." (3) Also laid-in is the portrait of George Daniel referred to in Mr. Lilly's note, and (4) a short, somewhat poetic memoir of him, curiously captioned "Memoir of D._ _G." The note on the endpaper describes the portrait and memoir as scarce as there were only a few copies printed. NB: A large number of the 19th Century acting editions are promoted as containing "remarks by D. _ _G" (i.e. George Daniel). These remarks are usually two to three pages in length and contain relatively non-critical comments about the play and its production. These prefaces consist primarily of a synopsis of the play, but occasionally they contain interesting anecdotes that shed some light on both the cultural and theatrical landscape of his time. Fortunately, in a few of the scripts the critic's nom de plume is forgotten, and he is identified as George Daniel (1789-1864). He was a descendant of a Huguenot family that settled in England in the 17th century. Even as a young man he was a prolific writer, mostly of poetry, but at the age of 18 he completed Dick Distich, a novel in three volumes. Yet it would be as a poet that Daniel was to gain his first taste of pseudonymous fame, as "P___P___, Poet Laureat." P___ P___, Poet Laureat's first poem was a "sprightly squib in verse" entitled "R_y_l Stripes; or a Kick from Yar_th to Wa_s; with the particulars of an Expedition to Oat_ds and the Sprained Ancle." It was an account of the horse-whipping given to the prince regent by Lord Yarmouth for "making improper advances" to his mother-in-law. The poem was immediately and simultaneously suppressed and highly popular. Daniel's original manuscript is kept in the British Museum. Broadl

MacPherson, James, Esq.  
The Poems of Ossian (Two Volumes-Complete)
 Picture
Publisher: A. Strahan and T. Cadell, London, 1790.
Very Good+ with no dust jacket. First Edition. 1. Hard Cover Bound in contemporary full leather, spines in six compartments separated by gilt borders, gilt lettering in two compartments on red panels, gilt decoration in other compartments, gilt borders on covers, gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers. In 1760, James MacPherson (1736-96), published "Fingal, an Ancient Epic Poem" his first translation of an ancient Gaelic poem composed by the warrior/poet Ossian a thousand years before. Praised by Schiller, quoted at length by Goethe, and beloved by Napoleon, a complete translation of the works of Ossian followed quickly upon the heels of its predecessor, but like "Fingal, " it was a monumental literary fraud unparalleled in the history of European scholarly letters. Composed entirely by MacPherson, Ossian was entirely a figment of Macpherson's imagination. In the following two years, MacPherson published two additional fragments, "Fragments" and "Temora." MacPherson had compiled fragments of ancient Gaelic poetry, which he interspersed with his own work, and published them all together, again as the work of Ossian, in 1765. This first collected edition, "The Works of Ossian" (1765), contains 400 or so textual revisions, mostly minor in nature, but for his second collected edition Macpherson reworked his entire text stylistically, and reordered the poems 'so as to form a kind of regular history of the age to which they relate'. When faced with skeptics, including Samuel Johnson, MacPherson was forced to fabricate his sources. [Lowndes 1736]. Also published there for the first time were MacPherson's prefatory discussion of the nature and merits of his 'translation' into prose rather than verse, doubting 'whether the harmony which these poems might derive from rhime could atone for the simplicity and energy, which they would lose'. He gives as an example a fragment of an old Norse poem translated by way of Gaelic into contemporary English prose, and then into contemporary English verse. The preface is dated 'Aug. 15, 1773'; it was less than six weeks later that Boswell and Johnson, in Ulinish on the Isle of Skye, were talking with Donald M'Queen about Ossian. 'I look upon M'Pherson's Fingal to be as gross an imposition as ever the world was troubled with', said Johnson. 'Had it been really an ancient work It would have been a curiosity of the first rate. As a modern production, it is nothing' (Boswell's Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides, ed. Hill-Powell, in Life of Johnson, V, 240-3) Johnson mentions this discussions with M'Queen in "Journey to the Western Islands" (first edition, pp. 271-7) in the course of a sustained denunciation of MacPherson's 'translations' and their apologists. Within two days of the distribution of Johnson's "Journey" to the booksellers, MacPherson began frantic negotiations with William Strahan, his publisher as well as Johnson's, to have an advertisement printed retracting such expressions as 'insolence, audacity, and guilt', a

Ross, Alexander; Milo Milton Quaife (ed)  
Adventures of the First Settlers on the Oregon or Columbia River: Being a Narrative of the Expedition fitted out by John Jacob Astor, to establish the Pacific Fur Company with an account of some Indian Tribes on the Coas

Publisher: The Lakeside Press / R. R. Donnelley & Sons, Chicago, 1923.
Near Fine with no dust jacket. First Edition Thus. First Printing. Hard Cover Publisher's full green cloth, gilt lettering on spine, gilt border and publisher's medallion, gilt, on cover, t.e.g., fore-edge deckle. Illustrated with fold-out map frontispiece. Alexander Ross (1783-1856) was a fur trader and author. In 1811, while working for John Jacob Astor's Pacific Fur Company, Ross took part in the founding of Fort Astoria, a fur-trading post at the mouth of the Columbia River. During the same year he led a detachment up the Columbia River and founded Fort Okanogan where during the winter he was the sole PFC employee at the trading post. During his solitary posting, Ross' hair greyed from the stress of being socially isolated among the welcoming Syilx people, "savages who had never seen a white man before." In 1818 Ross acted as scribe for a trading party from the North West Company who traveled within sight of the Teton Range in modern Wyoming. He and trapper Daniel Potts apparently viewed some of the thermal features of what is today Yellowstone National Park. Each of them produced an account of these features, with Ross reporting that "..boiling fountain having different degrees of temperature were very numerous; one or two were so very hot as to boil meat." Ross explored various territories of the Pacific Northwest. In 1824, while searching the mountain wilderness of what is present day Idaho, known to them as Columbia District, for beaver, Ross came up the Wood River and discovered Galena Summit on September 18. Leading a large brigade of Hudson's Bay Company trappers, he wondered if he could get through unknown mountains and rocky defiles that obstructed his passage back to his base of operations at present Challis. Unwilling to turn back he pressed on to explore Stanley Basin and the difficult canyon beyond. When he reached Challis on October 5, 1824, he had traveled the route now followed by Idaho State Highway 75 from Bellevue to Salmon through mostly unexplored land.

Publisher: Ioannem Hervagium et Bernardum Brandun, Basel, 1557.
Very Good with no dust jacket. First Edition Thus. 1. Vellum Hardcover. Bound in contemporary vellum boards. IN LATIN. This is an extremely rare copy of the complete works of Seneca printed in Basel in 1557 by Johannem Hervagium and Bernardum Brandun. Lucius Annaeus Seneca (c. 4 BC-AD 65) was a Roman philosopher, statesman, dramatist, and in one work humorist, of the Silver Age of Latin literature. Tacitus gives an account of the suicide of Seneca in his book, the Annals, in Book XV, Chapter/Number 60 through 64. Works attributed to Seneca include a satire, a meteorological essay, philosophical essays, 124 letters dealing with moral issues, and nine tragedies. Seneca's brand of Stoic philosophy emphasized practical steps by which the reader might confront life's problems. Johannem Hervagium (Johannes Hervagius) was Swiss publisher active in the period approximately 1528 through 1561, who published authoritative texts of many classical authors. EXTREMELY RARE. Edgewear, some very old tape repairs to boards. Titles in ink in a contemporary hand - On upper board ("L. Annaei Senecae | Opera omnia | (Basileae 1557) ") and spine ("L. Annaei Senecae Opumn"). Very old damp-stain on rear board not affecting text block. Very light foxing throughout. Pages quite supple. One line of text written and then crossed out on title page. VERY GOOD. 4to 11" - 13" tall. (xvi), 761, (15- index) pp
