        Icones Plantarum Syriae Rariorum, descriptionibus et observationibus illustratae.

      Parisiis, impensis autoris, 1791-1809. Parts 1-3 (of 5), bound in 1. 4to (270 x 215mm). pp. 22, 18, 16, with 30 engraved plates, of which a number by Pierre Joseph Redouté. Contemporary blind wrappers. The rarest of the 3 iconographies published by Labillardière. The 5 parts with 50 plates were published over a period of 21 years, hence complete copies are rare. There was an interval of 18 years between parts 2 and 3. The publication was interrupted when Labillardière was invited to join the expedition that was to be sent out in search of La Pérouse. After he had published his principal works on this expedition, the 'Rélation' of 1800 and 'Novae Hollandiae plantarum specimen' of 1804 and 1805, the publication of the present work was continued. The first botanical exploration of Ottoman Syria was made by Leonard Rauwolf, and his 'Aigentliche Beschreibung der Raiss inn die Morgenländer' was published in 1582. Botanical exploration of Turkish Syria was hampered by the fact that the countries (Ottoman Syria contained the general region of present Syria, Lebanon, and parts of Jordan and Palestine) were not very secure.//Labillardière obtained the services of some of the best botanical artists of all times to illustrate his 'Icones': Redouté, Poiteau and Turpin. A number of drawings are also by Pierre Joseph Redouté's less known brother Henri Joseph Redouté. //Junk Rara, 218; MacPhail. Cat. Redouteana 64; Nissen BBI, 1115; Stafleu & Cowan 4069. See also Stafleu's introductory note to the reprint of 1968.

        The Seige [sic] of Blenheim or the new system of Gunning discoverd.

      London Pubd March 5th by H. Humphrey No. 18 Old Bond Street. 1791 - Broadside engraving, 360 x 260 mms., engraved on one side only, uncoloured, and in very good condition. The Sitter is Gertrude Russell (née Leveson-Gower), Duchess of Bedford, with Elizabeth Gunning, John Gunning, and Susannah Gunning (née Minifie). Miss Gunning sits astride a cannon directed against the facade of Blenheim. Her mother (right) fires the cannon by putting her pen to the touch-hole. Elizabeth Gunning (1769 - 1823) moved to London with her parents, John Gunning (1742 - 1797) and Susannah Gunning née Minfie (1739/40 - 1800), when she was said to be engaged to be engaged to her cousin the Marquess of Lorne, heir to the Duke of Argyll. Later speculation liked her to a grander destiny, to be the wife of the Marquess of Blandford, heir to the Duke of Marlborough. Letters said to be from Blandford proved to be forgeries, and scandal ensued (so what else is new?), and the engraving caricatures the alleged attempts of her family to force a marriage between Blandford and Elizabeth. She married a Major Plunkett in 1803.

Born in Paris, he emigrated to London in 1732, where he quickly became a central figure in the introduction of the Rococo style in British design, which was disseminated from London in this period, through the media of book illustrations and engraved designs as well as by the examples of luxury goods in the 'French taste' brought down from London to provincial towns and country houses" (Wikipedia). 1 volume.

        The Friendly Monitor; or Dialogues for Youth against the fear of Ghosts and other Irrational Apprehensions, with reflections on the Power of the Imagination and the Folly of Superstition.

      W. Bent, London 1791 - Hardcover. Small octavo. [x] + 220pp. Original full calf-leather binding. The author's name is not given; the title-page states "By the author of The Polite Reasoner, and Juvenile Speaker," and the British Library entry for this book credits it to the authors of those volumes, one Mary Weightman. An unusual work designed to persuade young readers that it is quite irrational to believe in or be fearful of ghosts and the supernatural. The book comprises an "Advertisement", Introduction, and a series of nine imagined dialogues. In these dialogues Caroline, a young woman who is presumably the author's alter ego, seeks to persuade her credulous friends, Matilda and Henrietta, of the errors of their ways, and to help them break the "slavish fetters" in which their fear of ghosts has caused them to be shackled. Interestingly there are distinct similarities between her arguments and those of some modern psychologists, with her suggesting that the things they fear are nothing more than the products of their own imagination. From the collection of Dr. M. H. Coleman, with his ex-libris seal blind-stamped on front free endpaper. Wear to boards, small pieces lost from spine ends, page-edges browned, endpapers discolored. Contemporary previous owner's name (Emma Westmoreland) on front free endpaper, endpapers unevenly discolored, tide-mark to pages 11/12, top-margin pencil scrawls to two pages, otherwise a solid, complete near-VG copy.

        Orchard Oriole]

      [London 1791 - Watercolour and graphite, on laid paper, numbered 56 in graphite in Abbot's hand in the lower margin corresponding to his manuscript Catalogue of Georgia Birds with Notes. An original watercolour of an Orchard Oriole by an important naturalist in early America. John Abbot was one of the most important and prolific of the early American natural history artists. Born in London in 1751, Abbot developed his interest in natural history and drawing as a child. His curiosity about the natural world was encouraged by his parents who were relatively wealthy (at one time the family library included copies of Mark Catesby's Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama Islands as well as George Edwards' Natural History of Uncommon Birds and Gleanings of Natural History ). Having received sponsorship from the Royal Society of London and the collectors Thomas Martyn and Dru Drury, Abbot sailed for Virginia in July 1773, with orders for both actual specimens and drawings of the local insects. For the next two years he continued to collect and paint, sending home three insect collections, although only one arrived safely. The loss of these two valuable collections at sea together with the worry over political unrest in Virginia led Abbot to move to Georgia: he settled in St. George Parish (later Burke County), Georgia in December 1775. Abbot traveled widely throughout Georgia devoting his time to the study of the natural flora and fauna. The constant flow of specimen collections and watercolours of insects, and later of birds, ensured that his name became known to many of the foremost natural scientists and collectors of the day, both in America and Europe. Sir James Edward Smith, co-founder and first president of the Linnaean Society of London, recognised Abbot's talents, and responded enthusiastically to Abbot's desire to publish an illustrated work on the butterflies and moths of Georgia. This became the first printed work devoted to American entomology. Abbot was a fervent bird watcher and this watercolour is a testament to his artistic skill and powers of observation. This excellent portrait of the Orchard Oriole exemplifies Abott's mastery of the genre, his subject both vivid and precise in a natural landscape. Abbot's watercolours are amongst the finest natural history illustrations ever made: elegant and scientifically accurate, they rank with those of his famous contemporaries, William Bartram and Alexander Wilson. William Swainson described Abbot as one of the United States' most important natural history artists, as "a most assiduous collector, and an admirable draftsman of insects." (quoted by Sabin).

He departed from the usal practice of including physiology with anatomy. The book was very popular in German medical schools, and Meckel considered it Soemmerring's best work. It includes a very full list of what Soemmerring considered his anatomical discoveries." - A work which opened new paths in anatomy and physiology! - "Soemmering's handbook of human anatomy, 'Vom Baue des menschlichen Körpers' was based as far as possible on his own observations and was conceived as a supplement to Haller's 'Primae linae physiologiae', the work was still in use in expanded form a half century later. The foreword to the first edition reveals Soemmering's preoccupation with the use of clear, unmistakable terminology. It also contains an impressive list of his anatomical discoveries, although not all of them have proved to be valid. Among those that are still accepted, two of the most remarkable are the observation that arterial trunks always lie on the bent side of the joints and the discovery that the small part of the trigeminal nerve always lies against the third branch." Erich Hintzsche, DSB XII, 510. - "The most important work is the 'Vom Baue des menschlichen Körpers', the keynotes of which are accuracy, lucidity and precision." Mettler - "Die deskriptive Anatomie .. in dem Handbuch von Soemmering den Niederschlag aller Vollkomenheit (erreicht).." Toply, Geschichte der Medizin - - Garrison & Morton No 400

        Narcissus jonquilla

      - 13 x 9 inches. Dark brown body colour on prepared paper. Inscribed "N.2.Stück" and "am 9ten Aprill 1791--nach der Natur ge[zeichnet?] von JEW," ink collector's stamp "Linel-Smlg. No." followed by pencilled number "1046" (all on verso). Provenance: Linel (ink collector's stamp on verso). A high quality image that clearly is drawn from life, as the inscription claims. The artist's use of a dark prepared ground recalls the work of Barbara Regina Dietsch and her family. A search of Nissen's index of artists reveals one possible name: the Swiss artist Johann Emmanuel Wyss (1782-1837). However, the maturity and assurance shown in the present drawing would seem to rule him out: he could have been no older than nine in April 1791.

        Dissertation sur les variétés naturelles qui caractérisent la physionomie des hommes des divers climats et des différents âges ; suivie de réflexions sur la beauté. Ouvrage posthume de M. Pierre Camper (publié par A.G. Camper), traduit du hollandais par H.J. Jansen. On y a joint une dissertation du même auteur sur la meilleure forme des souliers.

      Paris & La Haye, H.J. Jansen & J. van Cleef 1791 - In-4, 168 pp., 11 pl. h.t., cartonnage post., non rogné, tête rouge, mouillure claire marginale sur les neuf premières planches et une petite tache de 7 mm sur la pl. I, sinon bon exemplaire. Première édition, posthume, réunissant deux des principaux ouvrages de Camper. Pierre Camper (1722-1789), né à Leyde, étudia la médecine avec Boerhaave. Il eut une chaire à Amsterdam puis à Groningue, et acquit une immense renommée. ¿During his lifetime Camper was one of the most famous scientists of western Europe. (He) had an encyclopedic mind and contributed to many field.¿(DSB III, p. 37) - La Dissertation sur les variétés naturelles a paru séparément la même année sous un autre titre : Dissertation physique [¿] sur les différences réelles que présentent les traits du visage. Ces deux éditions françaises ont été publiées la même année que l¿édition originale hollandaise. Elles sont ornées de dix belles planches dépliantes gravées sur cuivre. Camper, qui décrit ses méthodes de craniométrie, se révèle un pionnier de l¿anthropométrie. Il laissa son nom à l¿angle facial, qui est selon lui à la fois un critère distinctif des races humaines et un facteur esthétique, et dont la mesure est encore utile en chirurgie plastique. Certains exploitèrent ces résultats à des fins racistes. cf. Garrison & Morton, 158, pour la traduction allemande parue en 1792 (le choix de cette édition restant inexpliqué) ; L.Choulant, p. 286 (éd. hollandaise) : « contains the most valuable investigations on the mathematic structures of the human head (on cephalometry) and, of all his writings, was most instrumental in making Camper¿s name famous, since Camper¿s so-called facial line, or, more correctly, facial angle, was described for the first time in this book. The book also contains ten copperplates, drawn by Camper and engraved by Reinier Vinkeles, all in outline without cross-hatching. The French translation contains copies from the original plates.¿ - La Dissertation sur la meilleure forme des souliers a paru pour la première fois en 1781. Ce fut le premier ouvrage sur les difformités induites par les chaussures. Le texte original hollandais fut publié quelques semaines plus tôt dans un périodique. Cette monographie remarquable fut rapidement traduite en plusieurs langues et souvent rééditée. cf. Garrison & Morton, 4305.1 (pour l¿édition originale) ; Bick (Source book of orthopaedics), pp. 73-74 : ¿It begans with an apology, entered into a detailed anatomic study of the foot and its arches, and illustrated, in the most modern manner, many of the distorsions caused by pointed shoe toes, tight shoes, and other defects of the last¿ Camper, in writing what was probably the first serious book ever published on this matter, virtually introduced to the consideration of the medical profession the subject of static foot deformity, that is , the foot-aches and disabilities consequent to normal civilized life.¿; Mostofi (Who¿s who in orthopedics), p. 53: ¿one of the remarkable books in orthopedic literature. It was translated immediately and repeatedly into several European languages and was considered worthy of reprint as late as 1861.¿ [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Rare Ship's Passport with Health Certificate for an American Ship Bound from Cadiz in Spain to Philadelphia.

      Cadiz 1791 - Cadiz, 7 February, 1791. Official Health Certificate from Spain's naval authorities, completed in manuscript, signed in the original by 3 parties, certifies clearance for disembarkment and trade following inspection of an American vessel. Folio. Single leaf laid paper, printed recto only, measuring approximately 23 x 42 cm. Features large steel cut engraving. Text is in Spanish. Indication of moisture, otherwise very good condition, retaining a strong impression. Fascinating eighteenth century document from the Spanish Naval Court, signed on 7 February 1791, by an administrator of the Board of Health in Cadiz, issuing clearance to an American vessel named The Pilgrim, Captained by a John Smith, who was on a return voyage to colonial Philadelphia not long after the War of Independence. Following customary inspection for bubonic plague and other deadly diseases, Smith and his crew of six are free to enter port and trade goods, under certain restrictions, before heading to Philadelphia. Interestingly, they are specifically prohibited from trading slaves, as mentioned in the text. Captain John Smith was a Private, a trooper for the Royal Horse Guard Blues, a Cavalry Regiment of the British Army, before becoming a sea merchant. In 1784 Smith married Penelope Pitt (1749-1827), Viscountess Ligonier, daughter of the diplomatist and courtier George Pitt (1720-1803) of Stratfield Saye, Hampshire. Little else is known of him, though he may be a descendant of John Smith who emigrated to America in 1720, whose ancestry leads to John Smith born in 1655, County Monaghan, Ireland. This family Smith settled primarily in the Brandywine Settlement and the Lancaster County of Philadelphia. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
