Boston: Cummings & Hilliard (Hilliard & Metcalf, printers), 1822. 12mo. xxxii, 240 pp. Russian poetry, translated into English by John Bowring; first edition published in London, in 1821. Bearing the half-title "Russian Anthology" and including the poems of Derzhavin, Batiushov, Lomonosov, Zhukovsky, Karamsin, Dmitriev, Krilov, Khemnitzer, Bobrov, Bogdanovich, Davidov, Kostrov, Neledinsky Meletzky, this also offers some national songs and the poem "Death of Ossian." A second volume was published in 1823.    Evidence of readership: Pencillings in French and English record pronunciation of a name, offer judgments such as "a beautiful poem — with a loathsome subject," identify one figure in a poem by Derzhavin as "the pampered paramour of Catherine the great" and object on the same page to "the murder" of "helpless Turks"; brief quotations from a history of Russia (which, not clear) are supplied; and the writer wonders, "What must ...

1920. Prague: Nákladem časopisu "Sociální demokrat", 1920. Octavo (19.5 × 14.3 cm). Original pictorial wrappers signed V. P.; 127, [1] pp. Frontispiece portrait of Lenin. Small nicks to wrapper edges and wear to spine extremities; still about very good. One of the first appearances in Czech of Lenin's key strategic treatise (another translation, by Josef Reiner, was published by Fr. Borový that same year). Ironically, this work on the inadequacies of social democracy was published by the journal "Sociální demokrat." However, the list of other publications by the same publisher shows that its affinities were, in fact, far more radical. They include Bucharin's communist program, the constitution of the USSR, and numerous works on the Russian Revolution, as well as a negative work about the Czechoslovak Legion. With a striking drawn wrapper incorporating Soviet insignia and showing a worker triumphantly hissing the red flag ato ... Read more

Stockholm: Trychte hos Johan Hornberg, 1833. FIRST EDITION. 8vo, pp. [vi], 206, [4], 92, [2] , 107 [108 blank, 109 Errata, 110 blank], contemporary half calf, marbled boards (rubbed), gilt spine; slight wear to spine and corners, but a very good copy. Olde's work is a textbook for Swedish students of English, and his first extract, is from Scott's Tales of a Grandfather, with interlinear translation from English into Swedish of the first three chapters. The following chapters are only in English, and they are succeeded by a repeat of the opening chapter of Tales of a Grandfather, "Engelsk text till de tre forsta Kapitlen." The next extracts are from Washington Irving, the story "The Spectre Bridegroom," followed by "Rip Van Winkle." "The Wife," "A Contented Man," and "Christmas." Not traced in Bowden and Todd (who stop in 1832 in any case!).

Philadelphia: Pr. by Lang & Ustick, for M. Carey, H. & P. Rice & Co., J. Ormond, B. F. Bache, and J. Fellows, New York, 1796. 12mo. Frontis. port., [3 (2 blank)], vi–viii, (9)–293, [3 (blank)] pp. First American edition. Translated from the French. Portrait of Condorcet engraved by Elkanah Tisdale. Condorcet, a moderate Girondist and an outspoken critic of Robespierre and the Jacobins (he had argued in favor of sparing Louis XVI's life), wrote this philosophical work, "Esquisse d'un tableau historique des progres de l'esprit humain," while hiding in Paris. He was arrested and imprisoned on 27 March 1794. Two days later he was found dead in his cell.         Evans 30257; ESTC W31365.

St. Petersburg: XX Vek, 1902. Octavo (18.3 × 12.3 cm). Contemporary beige cloth; [4], 379 pp. Sixteen photographic portraits on separate leaves; numerous decorative head pieces and vignettes. Original wrappers perished; stamp of a non-existing lending library to title; else about very good. First and only edition of this sensationalist account of the life of American billionaires of the Gilded Age, supposedly written by a French journalist with exclusive access to the likes of Carnegie, Rockefeller, Vanderbilt, and Morgan. The supposed author -- according to the preface a former contributor to the journal 'Revue de revues' -- is likely a spurious pseudonym, as we have been unable to trace any French original with this title. The goal of the book is to expose the sheer power and inherent corruptness of the American financial and industrial elites, as demonstrated through descriptions of their business practices, but also their daily lives and intrigues. Chapters are devoted to the "first f ... Read more

[Prague]: Svobodné slovo, 1968-1969. Small octavos (15 × 11 cm). Contemporary blind card wrappers; 204 and 292 pp. The second text with nine reproductions of original drawings, signed M. Novák. Text probably slightly resized to binding; else about very good. First appearance of any work by Ian Fleming in Czech, in a translation by one "J. Bondy, agent 008" (Bondy is a common Czech surname). The work was published in installments by the journal Svobodné slovo (Free word). In 1969, the periodical also published Fleming's Goldfinger in serialized form. An ephemeral work: the installments were often gathered and bound, and are here preserved in two contemporary functional card wrappers. Fleming could only be published during the brief Prague Spring of 1968, after which censorship rules were once again tightened well into the 1980s. Not found in KVK, OCLC.

A Course of Lectures on Dramatic Art and Literature

Schlegel, August Wilhelm von; Black, John (translator); [Currer, Frances Mary Richardson]

  • Quantity available: 1
London: Baldwin, Craddock, and Joy, 1815. First edition in English of August Wilhelm von Schlegel's lectures on drama, from the ancient Greeks to Shakespeare and Goethe, first delivered in Vienna in 1808. A foundational text of German Romanticism, the lectures were influential across Europe; Schlegel's insistence on Shakespeare as a conscious artist, rather than "a blind and wildly luxuriant genius," did much to counter centuries of Continental condescension: "Shakespeare makes each of his principal characters the glass in which the others are reflected, and in which we are enabled to discover what could not be immediately revealed to us." This copy of Schlegel's lectures was owned by Yorkshire coal heiress Frances Mary Richardson Currer (1785-1861), who built a celebrated library of some 20,000 volumes. Contemporaries praised Currer's scholarship and taste, as well as the rigorous organization and "choice condition" of her books. The bibliographer Thomas Frognal ... Read more

The Colloquies, or Familiar Discourses of Desiderius Erasmus of Roterdam, Rendered into English

Erasmus, Desiderius; "H.M. Gent" (translator, Henry More or Henry Munday)

  • Quantity available: 1
London: E.T. and R.H. for H. Brome, B. Tooke, and T. Sawbridge, 1671. First edition in English of the complete Colloquia Familiaria of Erasmus, first published in 1518 and expanded by Erasmus over the next fifteen years, a lively collection of Latin dialogues that found a readership far beyond the Renaissance schoolroom. Originally intended to model colloquial conversation for students of Latin, the dialogues feature pointed, free-thinking exchanges on modern political, religious, and philosophical questions. In "Of the Abbot and Learned Woman," an ignorant abbot tries and fails to get the better of the classically educated Magdalia, a character almost certainly based on Thomas More's eldest daughter: "I think thou art some sophistress, thou protest so wittily." Magdalia: "I will not tell thee, what I think thou art." And later: "I have often heard it usually spoken, that a wise woman is twice a fool." Magdalia: "Indeed it useth to be said so, but by fools.&qu ... Read more

London: T. Jefferys, at the Corner of St. Martin's Lane, Charing-Cross, 1768. First English translation of Catherine the Great's Nakaz, her instructions to the commission she convened in 1767 to reform the Russian legal system. A student of the philosophes, Catherine was inspired by the principles of Montesquieu, Diderot, and Rousseau, as well as the writings of the Italian jurist Cesare Beccaria. She was eager to promote herself as a voice of enlightened reason, and Russia as a modern European nation. Although she considered the absolute power of the tsar the only practical means of governing such a vast empire, her Nakaz represented a striking break with Russia's feudal past: "the Equality of the Citizens consists in this; that they should all be subject to the same Laws." Catherine called for a transparent, universally applied legal code: "The Laws ought to be written in the common vernacular Tongue; and the Code, which contains all the Laws, ought to be esteemed as a Book of th ...
