A classical and topographical tour through Greece : during the years 1801, 1805, and 1806 by Edward Dodwell( )

2 editions published in 1819 in English and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The archaeologist Edward Dodwell (c.1776-1832) published this two-volume work in 1819. Elected an honorary member of Berlin's Royal Academy in 1816, Dodwell had been educated at Cambridge, toured France and Germany, and lived in Rome and Naples. Writing extensively on Greek antiquity, he made three tours of Greece, where he produced hundreds of drawings, recording in particular the Athenian Acropolis and the city walls of Argos. He also collected coins and discovered or acquired many valuable artefacts, notably bronzes and vases. Including reproductions of his accomplished illustrations, Volume 1 covers his tours of 1801 and 1805, during which he visited Corfu, Mount Parnassus, Thebes and Attica, spending considerable time in Athens. His detailed account, mixing travelogue with serious scholarship, remains of interest and relevance to classical archaeologists
Manfred : a dramatic poem by George Gordon Byron Byron( Book )

3 editions published in 1817 in English and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Manfred" was written just after the dissolution of Lord Byron's marriage and his self-imposed exile from Britain. The poem contains supernatural elements, popular during the Romantic era (Byron called it his "metaphysical drama") and concerns Manfred's forbidden relationship with Astarte and his subsequent guilt for an "unmentionable offense." Written so closely on the heels of Byron's rumored affair with his half-sister, many critics of the poem considered it to be a confessional

Letters and journals of Lord Byron : with notices of his life by George Gordon Byron Byron( Book )

3 editions published in 1830 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

George Gordon Noel Byron, 6th Baron Byron of Rochdale (1788–1824) is one of the central writers of British Romanticism and his 'Byronic' hero - the charming, dashing, rebellious outsider - remains a literary archetype. But to what extent is this character a portrayal of the author himself? Byron was known for his extremely unconventional, eccentric character and his extravagant and flamboyant lifestyle: Lady Caroline Lamb, one of his lovers, famously described him as 'mad, bad and dangerous to know'. This two-volume work, compiled by his friend Thomas Moore, to whom Byron had given his manuscript memoirs (which he later burnt), was published in 1830. Volume 2 gives an account of Byron's life and work from 1816, including his travels abroad in Switzerland and Italy, where close friendships with Lady Blessington and Percy and Mary Shelley developed, to his early death in the Greek War of Independence in 1824

The private journal of Captain G.F. Lyon of H.M.S. Hecla : during the recent voyage of discovery under Captain Parry, 1821-1823 by G. F Lyon( Book )

1 edition published in 1824 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a vivid account of Arctic exploration in its most classical period. The journal clearly demonstrates the observant, warm-hearted personality of its chronicler, an officer of the Royal Navy, a man of sensibility and courage. Its accurate descriptions and thoughtful understanding of the Eskimo people make it almost unique as an early nineteenth-century document. George Francis Lyon appeared in the Arctic in the 1820's at the very height of the feverish quest for the Northwest Passage to the Orient. For over two centuries before Lyon's first journey in the Arctic on board the Hecla, more than two score of European ships with their daring crews had set out to discover a northern trade route to China. All had been lost or driven back by the power of the moving ice. The expedition of the Fury and Hecla from 1821-1823 was yet another venture that failed to navigate the narrow ice-choked passage to the western sea, but the observations of both Perry and Lyon, the leaders of the expedition, made considerable additions to the geographical and scientific knowledge of the eastern and central Arctic. -- from Introduction
Narrative of a voyage to the Pacific and Beering's Strait to co-operate with the polar expeditions : performed in His Majesty's ship Blossom, under the command of Captain F.W. Beechey ... in the years 1825, 26, 27, 28 by Frederick William Beechey( Book )

1 edition published in 1831 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Travelling to the Bering Strait and beyond, Beechey's expedition was supposed to have met up with Sir John Franklin and Captain Parry, who were expected to arrive from the East. Franklin came within 50 leagues of Beechey's camp, but was forced to turn back on account of bad weather. This narrative remains one of ".the most valuable of modern voyages." (Hill 93) and provides accounts of visits to Pitcairn Island, where Beechey interviewed John Adams (the last surviving member of the mutiny on the Bounty), Tahiti, Alaska, Hawaii, Macao, Okinawa, and the coast of California

The topography of Athens. With some remarks on its antiquities by William Martin Leake( )

1 edition published in 1821 in English and held by 96 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

William Martin Leake (1777-1860) was a British military officer and classical scholar specialising in reconstructing the topography of ancient cities. He was a founding member of the Royal Geographical Society and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1815. After his retirement in 1815 he devoted the rest of his life to topographical and classical studies. First published in 1821, this pioneering volume contains Leake's reconstruction of ancient Athens. Leake analyses and compares ancient descriptions of the city with the archaeological remains as they existed at the time of publication, identifying ancient structures and suggesting where the remains of other buildings may be found by excavation. This book was regarded as authoritative for the structures of ancient Athens for most of the nineteenth century, with Leake's work being influential in shaping perceptions of classical archaeology and historical topography into the twentieth century

Journal of a tour through part of the snowy range of the Himālā Mountains : and to the sources of the Rivers Jumna and Ganges by James Baillie Fraser( Book )

1 edition published in 1820 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Scottish explorer and author James Baillie Fraser (1783-1856) published this account of his Himalayan journey through Nepal and India in 1820. (His 1826 book describing his travels in the lesser-known provinces of Persia is also reissued in this series.) Part I begins with a historical sketch of Nepal, the reasons for the outbreak of war between Nepal and British India in 1814 and the course and consequences of the war. The remainder of the book describes Fraser's travels through previously inaccessible mountainous areas to Jamunotri and Gangotri, the sources of the rivers Jumna and Ganges. Fraser admits in his preface that he is not an expert in any of the fields which would give his account scientific value, but he offers detailed descriptions of villages, temples and 'grand scenery', and of a people 'as they appeared before an intercourse with Europeans had in any degree changed them'
Northanger Abbey; and, Persuasion by Jane Austen( Book )

4 editions published in 1818 in English and held by 87 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

" ... Austen's first and last completed novels. Northanger Abbey, Jane Austen's satire on the fashionable Gothic novels of the time, was her first completed novel, probably finished in 1798 and ready for publication in 1803. It was sold for £10 to a Bath-based bookseller, Crosbie & Co. who did nothing with it and eventually sold it back to Jane Austen's brother for the original £10. Crosbie & Co. had apparently failed to connect their manuscript with the author of four popular novels and failed to capitalise on their investment. After further revision the book was published posthumously together with Persuasion, Austen's final book which she had completed in 1816, embarking upon it soon after she had finished Emma. Apart from effectively book-ending Jane Austen's literary career, the first and last of her novels make use of Austen's connection to Bath where she had lived from 1801 - 1805 and both display - the one in development and the other in full mastery - Austen's renowned uses of irony and social commentary. "That young lady has a talent for describing the involvements of feelings and characters of ordinary life which is to me the most wonderful I ever met with." (Sir Walter Scott)."--Abebooks website
