No Author Indicated, Illustrated by: Wood Engravings  
THEODORE CARLETON: OR Perseverance Against Fortune; Plus Titles on Dog, Birds, Animals, Indians, and Coverings for the Head and Feet.

Publisher: No Publisher No Place.
Red cloth hardcover with embossed decorations. 144 pages (six parts of 24 pages each) very charminglly illustrated with woodcuts throughout. No date: circa 1860. No place, no publisher (no title page as issued). This appears to be a compilation of "reward of merit" type books given by teachers to students who excelled. These books were often published with a "memorial" to a child, although this one is free of such morbidity, and intead includes only the moral story of the title. The other sections include 'Sagacity of the Dog, ' 'Child's Book of Birds, ' 'Child's Book of Animals, ' 'Romance of Indian History, ' and 'Coverings for the Head and Feet." The latter is an illustrated history of hats, headgear, and footwear. The child who received this (Laydora) must have been thrilled with the illustrations of dog breeds and bird and animal species; not to mention the "romance" of the Indian history and quaintness of hats and shoes illustrated. The teacher inscription is written very pale and small, apparently in pencil, on the front free endpaper. The corner tips and spine ends are worn, some surface duskiness and few specks of black (ink?) on cover, front hinge weak, some foxing throughout, mostly marginal browning. Lots of charm in this one, and unusual for its lack of heavy handed moralizing. Of course the 'Indian Romance' stuff casts the native in negative light, but the stories appear to be based on historical incidents. A real little charmer waiting for an appreciative home.

Polwhele, R. (Richard), 1760-1838  
Traditions and Recollections: Domestic, Clerical, and Literary; In Which Are Included Letters of Charles II, Cromwell...
Publisher: London, John Nichols & Sons, 1826.
Two octavo volumes: viii, 360; iii, 361-820 p., 6 plates (4 folding) incl. portrait frontispiece; 22.5 cm. Polwhele, best remembered now, especially by feminists, for a poem against female authors, was part of the antiquarian movement. He gathered traditions and documents relating to Cornwall and, to a lesser degree, Devon. In some ways he shares the Romantic interest in the rural and wild places of England. Slight foxing. Bound in full leather by Dragonfly Bindery, George & Pat Sargent. Stock#OB456.

Appr.: | AUD 1,298.70 CAD 1,250.00 EUR 896.86 GBP 636.94 JPY 100,000.00 MXN 12,500.00 ZAR 12,195.12

Great Britain. Treaties, etc. Portugal 1810 Feb. 19  
Tratado De Commercio, E Navegacao Entre Os Muito Altos, E Muito Poderosos Senhores O Principe Regente De Portugal, E El Reino Unido Da Grande Bretanha E Irlanda, Asignado No Rio De Janeiro

Publisher: Lisboa: Na Impressao Regia Anno De M.DCCC. XIX. [1819].
Folio 33 p. (A-I2, I2 blank). 31.5 cm. The vital treaty between Great Britain and Portugal signed during the Napoleonic Wars as Wellesley was conducting the Peninsular war to save the Portuguese from the terrors experienced by the Spanish. The treaty opened all Brazilian ports to English merchants and signalled for the first time that non-Portuguese were allowed to trade directly with the colony. Maria I (17344-1816) was not only old, in 1792 she had suffered a mental collapse and her son Jaoa, John VI, served as Regent 24 years. In 1810 the government was in exile in Brazil and thus the Royal Press issued the first edition in Rio in 1810. This Lisbon edition was issued to make legitimate the treaty, with the restoration of the Capital and the accession of John as King. A very good copy, bound in recent half leather. HAN. OB /OS 3

Appr.: | AUD 324.68 CAD 312.50 EUR 224.22 GBP 159.24 JPY 25,000.00 MXN 3,125.00 ZAR 3,048.78
