The maps are watermarked 1794. They are also printed on a paper with a high rag content and thus well-preserved, with a bit of light toning and only trivial soiling otherwise. A few leaves have a long, narrow light dampstain along a margin, which few would find bothersome. There are a few minor chips and/or tears besides, again not intrusive of the maps proper. Rebacked with modern calf. Otherwise the marbled boards and the corner calf triangles are contemporary. The latter have wear, as do the edges.

London 1798. - 'The African Association was founded in 1788. Its activities mark the beginning of African exploration in a systematic way, as well as the furthering of British trade and political prestige on that continent. This association was later merged into the Royal Geographical Society. The first concern of the African Association was the River Niger - where was its source and what was the direction of its flow, etc. The first four expeditions were unfortunate for the leaders, Ledyard, Lucas, Horneman, and Houghton, all of whom either died while enroute or were murdered by the fanatical Moors. The fifth, that of Mungo Park, was rich in geographical results, though he too died on his second expedition' (Cox I, p.388). This book contains the travel-accounts in Africa of Daniel Hougton (1790-91) and of Mungo Park (1795-97, his first expedition); with geographical explanation by James Rennell. - Good copy; very rare.Gay 2788 (English ed.); Not in Tiele.

        One of St. Helena's Towers (SIGNED Louis Joutel: an original water color

      No Publihsed Date. Late 1800 - This is an original water color that is SIGNED "L. Joutel" (believed to be Louis Hippolyte Joutel: 1858-1916) at bottom right under the tall tree, titled "one of St. Helena's Towers"; believe to be a work for "Land & Book" vol. 3 (hand written on the back of the board); hard board size: 12-1/4 x 10-1/2in, image size: 10 x 8in; colors seem to be black, gray, white with touches of lite brown; no published date but probably late 1800s; the artist did an extension of the drawing on to the board, the drawing is glued to a hard board; text under the drawing reads "runis near Yyre"; still with the artist brush strokes to the edges. CONDITION OF THE DRAWING: a tiny tear in the drawing, some water marks to the left inside the image and some smaller ones at top right of drawing; the hard board has rubbing and a large pin hole at very bottom; condition as described but overall still a lovely image of the artist's work. PLEASE NOTE: There is no reason that this would be a fake (bought with a lot of other drawings of the period of different artist). But I'm not an expert in these period drawings but it does appear to be very similar to his other drawings I have seen & very similar to the signatures. The price there for is reflected appropriately not knowing if this is authentic. From Journal New York Entomological Society. t Vo1 - xxiv "Many excursions were made to collect material in aid of his work, for Mr. Joutel was one of the most skillful natural history artists in America, and his knowledge of insects and their habits was a great asset in connection with his artistic work. His illustrations are well known. They will be found in some of Dr. Alpheus S. Packard's works, such as his Monograph of the Bombycine Moths of North America, in the reports of Dr. Ephraim P. Felt, state ento- mologist of New York; in some of the reports of the New Jersey state entomologist, in the Bulletins of the American Museum of Natural History and in many other publications devoted to entomol- ogy. Mr. Joutel was an illustrator for Harper and Brothers for a number of years, but when able, relinquished his work as a general illustrator and devoted himself to natural history subjects. This gave him a chance to investigate; to go afield in connection with his work, and before ill health prevented, he was active in rearing many kinds of insects, as well as fish, frogs, etc. He even raised some land or box turtles in his little garden. Facts of interest in con- nection with his entomological investigations were often presented at the meetings of the New York Entomological Society up to the year 1910. At the meeting of April 20, 1897, ne exhibited about fifty species of beetles, mostly Longicorns that had been bred by him, and throughout the early published proceedings of the Society there is much information contributed by Mr. Joutel."

NHSM; for Funch: Dansk biografisk lexicon V, pp. 492-493. Rare first and only edition of a work on the construction of merchant ships by the royal Danish shipbuilder Diderich Hansteen Funch (1791-1856). Funch was both a master shipbuilder at the royal dockyard, and a reputable author, known for several books on shipbuilding. The work is divided into two parts, the first covering the ship's hull and the second its masting and rigging. It "contains a complete system for the determination of all of a ship's calculated figures as well as its shape. The latter can be ascertained by consulting a table and following certain rules. Ships designed according to Funch's system had parabolic waterlines and curves; all the curves were thus mathematically determined. Funch's system seems to have influenced ship design in the provinces from about 1830 to 1845-50. Sheer draughts from the period show that the ships had parabolic curves as well as the fish shape prescribed by Funch. The interdependent proportions of the hull are also recognisable as the ones stipulated by Funch" (Nielsen).With the bookplate of the Swedish shipbuilder Nils Ljungzell (1885-1964) on pastedown, library stamp on title-page and a deaccession stamp on the title-pages of both parts. Slightly browned, some occasional minor spots, and a minor water stain in the foot margin of the second part (not affecting the plates). Good copy.

        Tour of the Grand Junction, Illustrated in a Series of Engravings; With an Historical and Topographical Description of those Parts of the Counties of Middlesex, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, and Northamptonshire, Through which the Canal passes

      Printed for J. Hassell. Printed for J. Hassell. First edition.. Binding slightly rubbed; fine copy.. Abbey, Scenery, 30; Tooley, page 139. 8vo, contemporary olive-green morocco, gilt rules, decorations and lettering, a.e.g. Twenty-four hand-colored aquatint plates drawn and engraved by Hassell. The Grand Junction Canal was designed to facilitate water transport from Oxford Canal to London, in place of the uncertain Thames River. The canal was opened in 1800 and pretty well completed in 1805, and its 93 miles of waterway, with two long tunnels, did greatly improve cargo shipping. It is now, like all the canals of England, used almost entirely for pleasure cruising. John Hassell (died 1825) wrote and illustrated numerous art-instruction and topographical works, of which this is one of the most appealing, due to the beauty of the countryside through which the canal passed. In his Preface Hassell declares that the Grand Junction "embraces a variety far exceeding that afforded by many rivers, as combining all the beauties of landscape--the elegance and splendor of the mansion and the villa--and the venerable remains of antiquity.

        VUE DU DÉFILÉ FORTIFIÉ DE LA CLUSE (DANS LA VALLÉE D'AOSTE). LES FRANCAIS FORCENT L'ENNEMI À ADANDONNER CE DÉFILÉ. 16 MAI 1800".

      PARIS, 1835 (mm 580 x 860 ca. più marg.)Incisione originale eseguita su matrice di rame; in lastra, sotto la parte figurata, a sinistra indicazione di Bagetti in qualità di disegnatore, più in basso al centro titolo; sopra la parte figurata, a destra, numero di tavola LXIV. L'opera, di grandi dimensioni ed effetto, è una delle due tavole rappresentanti vedute della Val d'Aosta contenute in una pubblicazione in - folio massimo. Il grande vedutista e topografo piemontese eseguì le rappresentazioni dell'esercito francese in marcia fra il 1797 e il 1800, in qualità di capitano ingegnere geografo al seguito dell'Armata Napoleonica durante la Campagna d'Italia. L'opera rappresenta uno scontro a fuoco fra i Francesi e gli avversari lungo il sentiero che costeggia un versante alpino; le piccole figure dei soldati contrastano con la grandiosità della veduta di montagna, caratterizzata da rocce imponenti su cui crescono alti alberi. L'esecuzione della tavola spetta a J. Desaulx, abile incisore attivo a Parigi nella prima metà del secolo XIX. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo, a pieni margini, privo dell'indicazione di Desaulx a destra sotto la parte figurata, descritta invece da A. Peyrot.

        Camelus Dromedarius / Le Dromadaire

      - Paris: Printed by Langlois, circa 1800-1. Rare colour-printed copper engraving, on wove paper. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, minor foxing, and a tiny nick at the edge of the right margin. 11 5/8 x 16 1/8 inches. 12 7/8 x 20 1/4 inches. A beautiful plate with stunning early colour, from Lacépède's "La Menagerie du Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle," an important scholarly work and one of the finest examples of eighteenth-century French natural history illustration. A professor of zoology at the Museum of Natural History, the French naturalist Bernard-Germain-Étienne Delaville, Comte de Lacépède (1756- 1825) was a versatile and precocious scholar who published a number of books on zoology, physics, and music. He was greatly influenced by the pioneering naturalist Georges Louis Marie Leclerc, comte de Buffon, whom he succeeded as Intendant at the Jardin du Roi, which later became the Musée d'Histoire Naturelle in 1793. During his tenure, Lacépède completed a comprehensive study of amphibians and reptiles, Historie Naturelle des Quadrupèdes Ovipares et des Serpens, which was published as a supplement to Buffon's magnum opus on animal classification Histoire Naturelle, Générale et Particulière. In 1800-1, he published the first edition of La Menagerie du Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle, a thorough survey of the various species of quadrupeds, reptiles and amphibians in the impressive collection of the Museum of Natural History. This magnificent work was comprised of descriptive text written by Lacépède and his colleague Georges L. C., Baron Cuvier (1769-1832) as well as a number of finely rendered plates after the most eminent natural history artists of the period, Nicolas Maréchal (1753-1803), Nicolas Huet (1770-1830) and Léon de Wailly (1801-1824). Painted from life on vellum, these beautifully detailed illustrations faithfully captured the appearance of the wondrous animals in the Paris menagerie. A pupil of J. G. Wille and C. N. Cochin, Simon Charles Miger was a royal academician and a talented engraver, who executed numerous portraits and natural history plates.

        Recherches physiologiques sur la vie et la mort.

      Paris, Brosson, Gabon et Cie, an VIII (1800) - Paris, Brosson, Gabon et Cie, an VIII (1800) ; in-8, (6), IV, 449 pp., pleine basane de l'époque, dos lisse orné, pièce de titre noire, roulette dorée d'encadrement sur les plats, tranches jaspées ; coins émoussés, coiffes et mors frottés, petit manque à la pièce de titre, intérieur en très bon état. Edition originale rare de cet ouvrage fondamental, qui contribua à poser les fondements de la physiologie moderne. Dans la première partie de l'ouvrage, Bichat définit la vie comme "l'ensemble des fonctions qui résistent à la mort" (définition devenue classique) et distingue la vie animale (de relation) et la vie organique (végétative, autonome). La seconde partie, fondée sur l'expérience, est consacrée aux recherches physiologiques sur la mort, et plus précisément aux rapports existants entre le cerveau, le coeur et les poumons. Bichat étudie l'action galvanique sur les organes d'animaux et, pour la première fois, sur celui de cadavres de guillotinés mis à sa disposition. Il réalise aussi les premières expériences de circulation croisée par anastomoses artérielles (afin d'obtenir un animal donneur et un animal receveur). Il démontre que "le cerveau n'exerce sur le coeur aucune influence directe ; que, par conséquent, lorsque le premier cesse d'agir, c'est indirectement que le second interrompt ses fonctions." De plus, il met en évidence, dans le fonctionnement cérébral, le rôle indispensable du sang artériel, vivifié par la respiration. Cet ouvrage servit de base à l'Anatomie Générale dans laquelle Bichat relie les différents tissus à leurs propriétés vitales. Garrison & Morton, 597 : "When Volta questioned the validity of experiments claiming to show responsiveness of an ex vitro heart, devoid of blood flow and nervous connections, Bichat obtained permission to experiment upon the freshly killed bodies of those guillotined during the french Revolution. His trials on both laboratory animals and human cadavers led him to conclude that cardiac excitation by electricity would occur only when the organ was stimulated by direct contact." ; Lesch, Science and medicine in France : the emergence of experimental physiology, 1790-1855, pp. 50-79 ; Hall, History of general physiology, T. 2, 121-132 ; A.

        East Hampton Long Island Indenture between Native Americans and inhabitants of East Hampton for the sale of the "neck of land called Montaquit" for the consideration of one hundred pounds sterling.

      - A circa 1800 copy of the original indenture for the purchase of "Montaquit" or Montauk dated August 1, 1660 between native Americans "the old sachem squa late wife of Waiandanoe and her son Wisscombone, Toquaton, Mussuquot, Yourke and gentleman the true and lawful Proprietors of the neck of land commonly Known by the name of Montaquit on the Eastern end of Long Island the one side, and Mr. Thomas Baker, Mr. Robert Rouce (Rouse), Mr. Thomas James, Lyon Gardiner, John Mufford (sic) John Hand and Benjamin Price of the plantation of East Hampton". The indenture describes the location of the land as follows: "the aforesaid neck of land called Montaquit with all and every part and parcel thereof from sea to sea from the utmost end of the land aforesaid to the sea side unto the utmost end of the said land westward adjoined to the [Rouces?] of East Hampton aforesaid ."Waiandanoe (also called Waiandance and Wyandanch) was a sachem born around 1620 in Montauk who became the main "alliance chief", one who maintains friendly relations between his tribe and the local colonists. The Long Island colonists gradually granted him significant financial and military support which was helpful in his ongoing struggles with the Mohegans and Niantics. In the 1650s Waiandanoe was in the midst of a fight with Ninigret, the sachem of the Niantics, in which his (Waiandanoe's) daughter was held captive; Lion (Lyon) Gardiner of this indenture was instrumental in acting as intermediary in payment of the ransom for her. In 1659 Waiandanoe appointed Gardiner as guardian to his young son Wyancombone; perhaps this is the son referred to in this indenture as Wisscombone.Lion Gardiner (1599 - 1663) is known as one of the earliest English settlers of Long Island. Gardiner and Waiandanoe developed a long standing relationship on Long Island. Gardiner was a military engineer first hired to fortify the colony of Connecticut; he completed and commanded Saybrook Fort during the Pequot War. Gardiner settled the island now known as Gardiner's Island as a proprietary colony in 1639; according to some reports Gardiner also purchased the island from the Montaukett Indians (Waiandanoe) because of Gardiner's intercession in paying the ransom for Waiandanoe's daughter. Gardiner's royal patent to his island allowed him to "possess the land forever"; since 1639 it has been privately owned by Gardiner family descendants and is the only US property still held by royal grant from the British crown.Docketed on back, "Montauk Indians to Thomas James, Robert Bond, & others/ Deed "Copy" Dated 1st Aug 1660 of all Montauk for L100 sterling." Folio, written on two sides, three original folds. Some contemporary cracking of the fold lines. 8 x 13".
