Second, corrected edition of Parry's account of his voyage in search of the Northwest Passage. Having sailed to the Arctic under John Ross, Parry believed that Lancaster Sound could provide the opening to the western sea. Equipped with two ships, the Hecla and the Gripper, he set out to confirm his suspicion in 1819. Parry discovered Prince Regent's Inlet, Melville Sound, and Banks Island, and surveyed the south shores of Barrow Strait. He reached longitude 110° West, but further westward advance was halted by ice. The crew wintered in Winter Harbour, and during this long winter Edward Sabine edited a periodical journal, The North Georgia gazette, and winter chronicle. This periodical was afterwards published by John Murray, and is here offered together with Parry's narrative. Our copy, moreover, has a hand-written inscription by Parry, pasted on the upper flyleaf: "Admit the bearer, W.E. Parry". Front board of the narrative slightly damaged; with the engraved bookplate of Samuel Neale. An attractive set, kept together in a slipcase.

First and only edition of the enlarged German translation of the geological and mineralogical results of Alexander von Humboldt's journey through Asiatic Russia, including the Ural mountains, Siberia and the Altai Mountains. In 1829 Humboldt went on an expedition at the request of Tsar Nicolas of Russia, into the Asiatic regions of the Russian empire "to ascertain the immense natural resources of the empire in the interest of promoting the growth of a national industry" (Howgego). After his return Humboldt composed a series of memoires, concerning geography, volcanic geology and climatology, which were read before the Academy of Sciences of Berlin and the Institute of France in the years 1830 and 1831. From these memoires the work Fragmens de geìologie et de climatologie Asiatiques was published in 1831, also including two chapters by Julius Klaproth on the Altai Mountains and the volcanos of China, Japan and other parts of Asia. The present German translation by Julius Loewenberg adds a new introduction, two maps (although the title speaks of "einer Karte" a printed note above the imprint says "Mit zwei Karten"), a table, and several comments.With pencil annotations and underscoring, some foxing, and the binding a bit rubbed. Good copy.

Abbé Jean Chappe d'Auteroche, a French astronomer, was sent to Siberia to observe the transit of Venus, which was due in June 1761 and had great scientific importance, since it could be used to estimate the size of the solar system.

After his return he published his Voyage en Siberie (1768). It describes Siberia's geography, natural history, and the culture of its inhabitants, and sharply condemns Russia's political regime.The plates show native inhabitants in their respective dress, and a view with Russian sledges.Some staining.

Die Tochter des Tapetenmalers und Radierers David Friedrich (1719-1766) war Schülerin ihres Vaters und ihres Bruders, des Historienmalers Alexander Friedrich (1744-1793). Bei ersterem erlernte sie das Zeichnen und die Anwendung der Wasserfarben, bei ihrem Bruder die Ölmalerei. Darüber hinaus bildete sie sich durch Beobachtung der Natur autodidaktisch weiter. Beachtung fand sie schon früh durch Chr.L. von Hagedorn (1712-1780), Kunstkritiker und Direktor der Dresdener Akademie. Vom Kurfürsten Friedrich August III. wurde sie 1770/71 zur Pensionärin (Stipendiatin) der Dresdener Akademie mit einer jährlichen Gratifikation von 25 Talern ernannt, 1774 wurde sie Ehrenmitglied. Schon zu Lebzeiten fand sie viel Anerkennung und war seit 1776 auf nahezu jeder Akademie-Ausstellung in Dresden mit ihren Werken vertreten. 1783 wurde ihre Stipendium-Gratifikation erhöht, zugleich erfolgte die Ernennung zur Unterlehrerin für Stilleben an der Akademie. Die Künstlerin lebte jahrelang in einer Hausgemeinschaft mit ihrem Kollegen Johann Eleazar Zeissig, gen. Schenau (1737-1805) und unterrichtete bis 1812 zahlreiche Schüler und Schülerinnen. Ihre Zeichnungen, Aquarelle und Gouachen sind u.a. im Kupferstichkabinett in Dresden, der Graphiksammlung der Kunstsammlungen Weimar zu finden. Auch in der Sammlung von König Friedrich August III. war sie mit Arbeiten vertreten.

The most important late 18th-century voyage of exploration to the Strait of Magellan, complete with the separately published appendix, with very detailed maps of Patagonia, Tierra del Fuego, the Falkland Islands and the Strait. Attributed to José Vargas Ponce (1760-1821), the work is largely compiled from the unpublished journals of two lieutenants on the voyage, Dionisio Alcala Galiano (1760-1805) and Alessandro Belmonti. The main purposes of the expedition, under the command of Captain Antonio de Cordoba (died 1811), were to determine if the strait was a viable trade route to Asia and the Pacific, to map the Patagonian coasts, and to recommend sites for Spanish settlement. The voyage's reports provided the most important and most accurate information about the southern parts of Argentina and Chile then available. Very good copy, with only light offsetting in the maps and the margin of one map curled. Binding rubbed and hinges restored. An important report of an explorer's voyage and a fine example of Spanish book and map production.

Small 8vo (16 x 9 cm). With a woodcut headpiece and decorations built up from cast fleurons. Contemporary boards, covered with gold-brocade paper with a floral pattern coloured in a calico pattern, red sprinkled edges.

      Howes C-880; Howgego, to 1800, C218; Huntress 49C; Sabin 17476; cf. Bibliography of Canadiana, 2nd suppl. 3683 (1st ed.); Gagnon II, 540 (idem); Streeter, Americana 122 (idem). Second edition of Emmanuelle Crespel's account, edited by his brother Louis. Emmanuelle Crespel (1703-1775) sailed for Quebec in the Chameau in 1724. Two years later he was ordained priest and subsequently served at Fort Richelieu. While in Canada he accompanied a punitive expedition to raid the Fox Indians (in present-day Wisonsin), who were disrupting French trade around Lake Michigan. "Crespel's account provides the only account of that expedition" (Howgego). Crespel was called back to France in 1736 and left Quebec in the Renommée, which was wrecked on the southern tip of Anticosti Island after 11 days. He wintered in Anticosti, surviving famine, illness and the harrowing cold, finally reaching France in 1737.Crespel relates these adventures in the form of letters written from Paderborn (Germany) in 1742 to his brother Louis, who inscribed the present copy: "Louïs Crespel marchand bijoutier, ruë Fridberg à Francfort". Two other inscriptions read "Franc Bsar Borgnis" and "Franco Baldsre Borgnis. Magonza [= Mainz] il 14 febr. 1786". Louis Crespel (1705-1794) was a Frankfurt-based jewellery merchant and may have been an acquaintance of the Italian-born Francesco Baldasare Borgis (1705-1798), a Mainz dealer in luxury goods.With 20th-century bookplate of Roberto Gabbani on front pastedown. In very good condition with only some minor browning and staining. The binding slightly chafed and the foot of the spine chipped. Crespel's "relation is an important supplement to those of Sagard and Le Clerq on the same region" (Streeter).

Until September the fleet was anchored at Batticaloa on Ceylon's east coast where Spilbergen negotiated with the king of Kandi, promising him military assistance against the Portuguese. Between September 1602 and March 1603 he was at Banda Atjeh, in Sumatra, negotiating with the sultan and hunting for Portuguese ships. In February 1603 ships of the newly founded Dutch East India Company arrived at Atjeh and were joined by Spilbergen's fleet. After spending the summer of 1603 at Bantam in Java, Spilbergen returned to Holland with his two remaining ships, arriving at Vlissingen on 24 March 1604.In 1603 the VOC appointed Steven vander Hagen to lead a voyage to the East Indies, which sailed in December 1603 with twelve heavily armed vessels taking about 1200 men. His instructions were to attack the Portuguese trading ports in India, take Malacca, and expell the Spanish from the Moluccas. Also with Vander Hagen's fleet was the yacht Duyfken under command of Willem Jansz., who was to discover Australia in 1606. In September 1605 Vander Hagen sailed for Holland leaving the Duyfken and another vessel in the Indies for further exploration, and leaving three manned forts in the Spice Islands.With a small tear in the folding plate, slightly affecting the background of 1 illustration, and faint marginal water stains in a few leaves, but generally in good condition.

Sambt wolgegründten bericht von beschaffenhaitt deß Landts und Volcks ...Augsburg, Anton Hierat von Cöllen (colophon: printed by the widow Sara Manglin), 1617. 4to. With an engraved title-page, woodcut IHS device above the colophon, 6 woodcut initial letters, 2 woodcut tailpieces (1 with the IHS monogram). Text and marginal notes in fraktur types. Without the small folding woodcut plan of Beijing present in some copies. Later vellum, modern endpapers.

      De Backer & Sommervogel VIII, cols. 239-240; Cordier, Sinica, col. 810; Howgego, to 1800, R40 (see also T66 & G56); Lust 840; Maulo, Opere di Matteo Ricci, pp. 9-11; cf. Hanotiau 14 (French edition); Löwendahl 54 (Latin edition). The rare first German edition of "the most influential description of China to appear during the first half of the 17th century" (Hanotiau). Ricci, an Italian Jesuit missionary, arrived in China in 1582. Adopting Chinese dress and learning the language, he succeeded where other missionaries had failed. He served in Nanchang, Nanking, and received permission to establish a missionary post in Beijing in 1610. During these years, he kept a journal which presented the history of Jesuit mission in China from its beginning in 1582 to 1610, the year of his death. This manuscript was translated from the Italian into Latin by Ricci's successor Trigault, who tried to elicit support for the mission in China. Trigault, however, changed many passages of Ricci's journal and augmented it with information based on several Portuguese reports. "The resulting volume contains not only a history of the Jesuit mission but also includes a wealth of information about China in the chapters describing Chinese geography, people, laws, government, religion, learning, commerce and the like" (Hanotiau). The title-page, engraved by Wolfgang Kilian, gives the title on a cloth hanging in a portico, flanked by the figures of St Francis Xavier and Matteo Ricci, and with a small map of China, Korea, Japan and Formosa, with the Great Wall depicted, at the foot. With a library stamp on the title-page (on the map, alas), some defects. A very good copy of a rare and very important work by a Jesuit with an unmatched first-hand knowledge of China.

A UNIQUE ALBUM OF HISTORICAL IMPORTANCE, ENTIRELY IN MANUSCRIPT, IN A SIGNED RUSSIAN PRESENTATION BINDING. OF EXCEPTIONAL DIMENSIONS AND IN FRESH CONDITION, FROM THE LIBRARY OF TSAR ALEXANDER II. On 10 March 1800, the very year when the album was executed, the Artillery and Engineering Gentry Cadet Corps (Artilleriyskiy i Inzhenerniy Shliakhetskiy Korpus) was renamed into the Second Cadet Corps by the order of Tsar Paul I. It is therefore highly probable, considering its importance and quality, that the present work was presented by the cadets to the Tsar. It contains 95 charts of artillery arms, mainly canons and related equipment, skillfully executed in watercolours and signed by the Cadets, each page bearing a different signature. The arms drawn in detail are apparently of the standard of the year 1797 developed for the Gatchina artillery troops, which were under the direct command of Paul I. This emphasizes the historical importance of the present drawings in the military history of the Russian Empire, since "even the State Archive of the Military and Historical Museum of Artillery in St. Petersburg doesn't have charts of the arms of the 1797 standard" (PhD thesis by Yurkevich E.I., 2003, p.22). Our research could also bring to light another, similar album, kept in the Manuscripts department of the National Library of Russia (No139). Their version however differs from ours not only by the quantity of drawings (124 in the NLR), but also by the date - one year later, 1801 - and very interestingly by the Tsar's monogram on the title page: the NLR album shows the initials of the new Tsar, Alexander I, just enthroned after the assassination of his father Paul in March 1801. Perhaps the gift to Paul needed to be updated and adapted to the new ruler? ?????????? ?????? ?????????????? ???????????? ????????, ?????????? ??????????? ?? ???? ???????, ? ???????????? ?????????? ?????????. ????? ??????? ?????? ? ?????????? ???????????; ?????????? ?? ??????? ?????????? ??????????

        The True History of the Conquest of Mexico Written in the Year 1598. Translated from the Original Spanish by Maurice Keatinge Esq.

      London: Printed by J. Wright for John Dean, 1800. - 4to., (10 ½ x 8 ¾ inches). Notes & Errata leaf. Fine engraved frontispiece "Plan of the City and Lake of Mexico, with an Elevation of an Ancient Temple" (small fold to upper corner, one or two spots). Contemporary mottled calf, the spine in six compartments with five raised bands, red morocco gilt lettering piece in one (rebacked, extremities a bit worn). First English edition (first published in Spain in 1632). Born in Spain, Bernal Diaz del Castillo arrived in America in 1514 at the young age of 21. He settled in Cuba, and five years later he joined Hernandez de Cordova's expedition to Yucatán. Later he fought alongside Cortès in the conquest of Mexico, and was appointed governor of Santiago de Guatemala by the King of Spain in recognition of his efforts there. He was inspired to write a "true history" of the events of the conquest because he greatly disapproved of the works previously written about the period, which he declared were full of errors. He insists in the text that "as actor and eyewitness, he was better situated to record the truth of the expeditions in their topographical and military details" (Encyclopaedia Britannica). The manuscript was completed in 1568, whereupon a copy was made and sent to King Philip II. However, it remained unpublished for 70 years, until it was found in the library of Don Lorenzo Ramirez de Prado and given to Remon to be printed in 1632. (Huntington Library Notes). For more information about this book, or a warm welcome to see it and other books in our library at 72nd Street, NYC, please contact Megan Scauri, M.A., M.L.S., in the Rare Book Department.

        The Geographical System of Herodotus , Examined; and Explained

      London: W. Bulmer, 1800. Thick quarto, portrait frontispiece and eleven maps (ten folding), moderate foxing of maps and preliminary leaves, one map with small marginal tear and slight loss (not affecting image), some offsetting; an excellent copy in contemporary polished calf, rebacked with original spine laid down, spine in panels with large crimson morocco labels. Handsome copy of the scarce first edition of Major James Rennell&#39;s magisterial work on ancient geography: &#39;a monument of laborious research and acute and lucid criticism&#39; (ODNB). This work is famous for its series of detailed and attractive maps of the Near East, the Mediterranean and Africa by John Walker, engraver to the Admiralty. Of particular note is Rennell&#39;s map of the voyages of the Carthaginian Hanno the Navigator (c. 500 BCE), a major voyage of discovery in west Africa and one of the earliest voyages to traverse the Pillars of Hercules in an attempt to extend maritime discovery beyond the Mediterranean. Equally interesting is his map and accompanying two-chapter discussion of the purported circumnavigation of Africa by Phoenicians working for Pharaoh Necho II, a feat which Rennell was inclined to believe was possible, certainly insofar as the ancients had a knowledge of Mozambique and Sofala on the east coast. A second related map details the ocean currents from the coast of west Africa around the continent to the Arabian peninsula; Rennell was the authority on ocean currents during this period. The voyage of Necho, described in Pliny and Herodotus, was doubted by Strabo and Ptolemy, but Rennell&#39;s detailed account returned the story to some credibility, in a discussion which included his thoughts on Henry the Navigator and Columbus. One of the most substantive aspects of the work is Rennell&#39;s continually reverting to his pioneering exposition of the ways in which Renaissance and modern discoveries were influenced by their ancient predecessors. Rennell&#39;s aim was an examination and possible reconciliation of ancient geographical knowledge, principally from Herodotus, in the perspective of modern discoveries. This scholarship is synthesised in eleven large and finely engraved folding maps, including the world view of Herodotus in two different projections and the Persian empire under Darius. The location of ancient cities, namely Memphis and Babylon, is treated in detail with attendant maps. James Rennell (1742-1830) was one of the pre-eminent cartographers and scholars of his generation. He joined the navy at age 14 and the East India Station in 1760, undertaking three years of arduous marine survey in far east Asia. In April 1764 he was commissioned to the Bengal Engineers and worked tirelessly on the survey of the region, one of the most ambitious mapping projects ever undertaken by the East India Company. Retiring from active service in 1777, he devoted the rest of his life to historical scholarship and cartographic studies. Rennell was elected to the Royal Society in 1781 and awarded their prestigious Copley Medal ten years later (the same medal awarded to Captain Cook in 1776 for his pioneering study in alleviating scurvy). The book was popular with contemporary readers, selling for threefold the original price within years of publication. A second edition in two volumes in was issued in 1830.
