Survey & Plans of Woolley Manor in the County of Somerset, the Property of Miss Eliz: Gunning.
Survey & Plans of Woolley Manor in the County of Somerset, the Property of Miss Eliz: Gunning.
Survey'd by John Hinde in 1760, and planned by Isaac Johnson, Surveyor Woodbridge Suff: 1798, &9.
7 estate plans, 2 figurative vignettes, 1 elaborate frontispiece and 1 view of Woolley church in pen and ink and watercolour separated by blank leaves, in original card wrapper and complete as index. Sheet size 233 x 200mm. Binding extremely worn and chipped, with tatty extremities. Leaves partially disbound.
A set of high quality manuscript surveys, far more decorative than is standard on maps of estates. Each map shows a unique compass point design and corresponds to an index on facing page with elegant calligraphic title within a cartouche in ink and watercolour. 2 leaves with classical female figures in ovals mark the beginning and end of the volume. These and the vignette view of the local church further demonstrate the high degree of draughtsmanship and skill of the artist, Isaac Johnson. Johnson [1754 - 1835], a Suffolk man through and through, practised as a surveyor in Woodbridge for 50 years and he produced detailed maps of many estates throughout East Anglia. He was also a gifted artist, copyist and antiquarian draughtsman. This survey he copied from an earlier work by a John Hinde, perhaps at the request of a Reverend Gunning of Sutton in Suffolk who it is known ordered drawings of Gretna Green and 'Cupids from Cipriani', and may have been a relation of the Elizabeth Gunning who owned Woolley Manor. Includes 4 loose sheets of ephemera relating to the Poulett family, including 2 birth certificates, an engraved genealogical chart and an 1851 certificate of induction of one William Henry Poulett into the 'Grand Lodge of Ireland'. The Pouletts were an ancient Somerset family who it can be reasonably assumed resided at Woolley Manor during the 19th century.

W. Fowler Sculpt.
[London: for the Author, 1807-8.]
Book with Titlepage and ten fine hand-coloured engraved plates (disbound): seven Norman Earls of Chester and two Saxon Earls of Mercia, plus genealogical chart frontispiece. All mounted on thick card and presented in original marble card wrappers, atlas folio (670 x 495mm, 26½ x 19½"), printed title label to upper cover. Also included is a watercolour drawing to separate, smaller sheet captioned "The foot of the great Staircase Aston Hall" in pencil. c.1872 armorial bookplate of Berdmore Compton of Atherstone Hall. Boards scuffed and rubbed, with tatty and heavily chipped extremities. Plates good, in vibrant original colour.
William Fowler (1761 - 1832), architect, engraver and draughtsman, was born at Winterton, Lincolnshire, where he became an architect and builder, and about 1796 made drawings of Roman pavements discovered there. These were so much admired that he took them to London to be engraved, where he studied the process of copper-plate engraving. He published three volumes in total, containing coloured engravings of twenty-five pavements, thirty-nine subjects from painted glass, five brasses and incised slabs, four fonts, and eight miscellaneous subjects. He also executed at least twenty nine engravings, mostly of objects of antiquity, which were never published. He became acquainted with Sir Joseph Banks, Sir Walter Scott, and other celebrities, and was once at least presented to the royal family at Windsor. Aston Hall is a municipally owned Jacobean mansion in Aston, Birmingham. Heneage Legge of Idlicote, Warwickshire, was the son of the judge of the same name (1704 - 1759). This is a handsome production; very rarely does a complete set of these vibrant designs come to the market.

Includes Sir William Jones's poem 'Caissa', while the introductory part is from Peter Pratt's 'Theory of Chess'. By Francois-Andre Danican Philidor (1726 - 1795). Philidor was a French composer, also regarded as the best chess player of his age. He started playing regularly around 1740 at the chess Mecca of France, the Café de la Régence. It was also there that he famously played with a friend from 'New England', Benjamin Franklin. The best player in France at the time, Legall de Kermeur, taught him. In 1774 the Parloe's chess club, on St James Street in London, was created, and Philidor obtained a remuneration as a chess master every year, for a regular season from February to June. Philidor stayed faithful to this agreement until the end of his life and he was replaced by Verdoni only after his death. In December 1792 he had to leave France permanently for England, fleeing the French Revolution, because his name figured on the banishment list established by the Convention nationale. His admirers and friends included the French philosophers Voltaire, Rousseau and the famous actor David Garrick. Ink ownership inscriptions to front free-endpapers.

He published The Ring and the Book, 1868-9, Balaustion's Adventure, 1871, and Dramatic Idylls, 1879-80; Browning was one of the great poets of the nineteenth-century, pre-eminent for his intellectuality, and for his use of dramatic psychological monologues. Advetising and other text to both upper and lower covers.

An Election Ball, in Poetical Letters from Mr. Inkle, at Bath, to His Wife at Gloucester: with a Poetical Address to John Miller, Esq. at Batheaston Villa. [Inscribed in ink on inside cover:] H Wigley April 2. 1788.
[Christopher Anstey] The Third Edition. By the Author of the New Bath Guide.
Printed for the Author by S. Hazard, Bath; And Sold by Dodsley, Pall-Mall, and Wilkie, St. Paul's-Church-Yard, London: Fletcher and Hodson, at Cambridge; and by S. Hazard, and all the other Booksellers at Bath. M.DCC.LXXVI. [1776.] Price Two Shillings and Six-Pence.
Book; 4to. Original boards. Slighty tatty.
Engraved frontispiece by C. W. Bampfylde. Christopher Anstey (1724-1805) was an English writer and poet. His early writing life showed little success but when he moved to Bath, his 1766 publication of penned rhymed letters 'The New Bathe Guide', the satirical poem of considerable sparkle, had immediate success. This 1776 publication of Poetical Letters sustained the reputation won by the Guide. This publication consists of a series of letters from Mr. Inkle to his wife Dinah, at Gloucester, describing a 1775 ball given to celebrate Sir John Sebright’s re-election to Parliament as member for Bath. Inkle is scarcely a member of polite society, but he is ambitious and would very much like to become one. He brings along his daughter Margery (“Madge”), who has her own aspirations to become fashionable, with disastrous consequences, and we see the shortcomings and eccentricities of Bath society through his naive eyes.

Portrait Gallery of Distinguished American Citizens,
Portrait Gallery of Distinguished American Citizens, with Biographical Sketches, and Fac-similes of Original Letters. By William H. Brown.
Hartford [Connecticut, USA]: Published by E. B. and E. C. Kellogg. MDCCCXLVI [1846].
Folio, 27 sepia-tinted lithographic portraits in silhouette, plus facing facsimile of an autograph letter by the sitter (complete); including frontispiece of George Washington with facsimile of his letter to Gov. Jonathan Trumbull, May 15, 1784. 111 pp., original dark brown cloth boards backed with black morocco; the upper cover stamped in gilt with title and an image of a seated man examining a book. Binding a little scuffed and rubbed; some foxing to text leaves and spotting and browning to plate margins, as usual. Creasing through upper left corner of frontispiece; generally a good copy.
The subjects are Washington, John Marshall, John Quincy Adams, Richard Channing Moore, Andrew Jackson, John Forsyth, William Henry Harrison, John Caldwell Calhoun, De Witt Clinton, Richard Mentor Johnson, Joel Roberts Poinsett, Alexander Macomb, Martin Van Buren, Samuel Lewis Southard, Henry Clay, Henry Alexander Wise, Thomas Hart Benton, John Tyler, Levi Woodbury, Thomas Cooper, Daniel Webster, William White, Silas Wright, Nathaniel Potter Tallmadge, Felix Grundy, Dixon Hall, Lewis, and John Randolph. William Henry Brown (1808 - 1883), born in Charleston, South Carolina, was widely celebrated for his scissor-cut silhouettes. He wandered all over the United States, tracking down statesmen and distinguished citizens and taking their profiles. All the portraits, except for the George Washington allegorical frontispiece, are based on sketches made from life by Brown. This book was originally issued in 1845, but Harry Peters states that: "Almost the entire edition was destroyed by fire, and copies are extremely rare."
See Library of Congress 06010172 for an 1845 edition.

[The illustrations from Sir Thomas Hanmer's 'Works of Shakespear'.]
F.Hayman Inv. H. Gravelot Sculp.
[Oxford: University Press, c.1743-4.]
Original wrappers; 39 engraved plates, in ink on frontis "Thos. Norris"; c.250 x 175mm (9¾ x 7"), with very large margins. Binding strained, some plates with small tears in margins, damp staining and age-toning.
The complete set of 36 scenes engraved by Hubert Gravelot after Francis Hayman. The other three plates are a portrait of Shakespeare after Houbraken, his memorial in Holy Trinity Church at Stratford-upon-Avon and Scheemakers' 18th-century monument in Poets' Corner, Westminster Abbey. The Oxford University Press published a deluxe six-volume illustrated edition of Shakespeare, the first complete edition to be published outside London. The fine bindings and the quality of the illustrations made the edition very popular; however Sir Thomas Hanmer (1677-1746, a Speaker of the House of Commons) had edited the text (not present here) with his own conjectures, without indictating what he had changed. 'William Shakespeare: A Textual Companion' (1997) describes the edition as ''one of the worst in the eighteenth century''.

Depiction of the battle which took place between the Royalists and the French Revolutionary Troops on the 13 Vendémiaire Year 4 (5th October 1795), a battle which was to instigate Napoleon Bonaparte's rapid advancement. The Revolutions anti-catholic sentiments created strong anti-revolutionary feelings in western France, feelings which boiled over into an insurrection. The Royalists, supported by British troops, having been victorious in several battles marched on Paris. Royalists within the city began demonstrations which soon turned violent. A young General Bonaparte suceeded in defeating the Royalists, essentially extinguishing the threat to the Revolution, and was promoted to General of the Division.
