Andrews drew and engraved all his plates, wrote most of the text and, according to Dunthorne, even did his own colouring.This work exemplifies the 'erica-mania' that dominated English horticulture at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Numerous newly discovered South African species were being introduced through the enterprise of nurserymen like Lee and Kennedy, and several hundred species and varieties were available and in cultivation.This copy contains all the indexes, dedication, address, introduction, dissertation, list of heaths cultivated by Lee and Kennedy at the Vineyard Nursery in Hammersmith, systematical arrangements, etc. In common with other copies seen, the titlepage of volume IV is in fact the title from volume II with the number altered by hand. The work was published in parts, and volume IV appeared over a twenty-year period from 1810 to 1830. Few complete copies survive, and most sets comprise only the first three volumes, with occasionally a fragment of the fourth.Dunthorne 9; Great flower books p 47; Johnston 674 (vols I-III only); Nissen BBI 31; Stafleu and Cowan 134

      Philadelphia Printed by William Duane 1802 - The First Book Printed in America on Athletics SALZMANN, Christian Gotthilf. Gymnastics for Youth, or A Practical Guide to Healthful and Amusing Exercises for the Use of Schools. An Essay toward the Necessary improvement of Education, Chiefly as it relates to the body; freely translated from the German of C.G. Salzmann.Illustrated with copper plates. Philadelphia: Printed by William Duane, 1802. First American edition and the first American book on athletics, including running, jumping, pole-vaulting, gymnastics, swimming and wrestling. Small quarto (8 x 4 3/4 inches; 120 x 203 mm.). xvi, 432 pp. Complete with all ten engraved plates (one folding) of figures exercising. Plates unsigned but attributed by Keynes to William Blake. Plates include gymnastic equipment, leaping, running, throwing, wrestling, balancing, trundling and swimming. Contemporary tree calf, rebacked to style at an early date, smooth spine with gilt rules and red morocco gilt spine label. Some pencil notations on front and rear endpapers. Contemporary signature and date on front free endpaper. Folding map with a few short closed tears. Staining to inner margin of first quarter of book, not affecting text (except for title page). Offsetting from plates to text and foxing throughout, as usual. Considering that this was a book manufactured in America, a very good copy. One of the premier texts exposing educational naturalism. Educational naturalism (1700s) as espoused by Jean Jacques Rousseau stated that the proper way to educate a child was to take the child out in nature and allow him to question and inquire. While France was not receptive to Rousseau's theories, Johann Basedow, a German teacher, was. In establishing his private school, the Philanthropinum (1776), he sought to put into practice these naturalistic principles. He set aside a portion of each day for physical activities of both a structured and unstructured variety. C.G. Salzmann's school (1785), the Schnepfenthal Institute, which was a model of Basedow's School, was even more successful in its implementation of naturalism. Salzmann's school, opened in 1785 in the Thuringen forest, made much of gardening, agricultural work, animal study, home geography, nature study, gymnastics, and recreation, as well as book study. It was distinctively a small but high-grade experimental school, so successful that in 1884 it celebrated its one hundredth anniversary. A pupil in the school was Carl Ritter, the founder of modern geographical study. Christian Gotthilf Salzmann (1744–1811) was a German Protestant educational writer and moralist, who founded a school in Schnepfenthal, Germany. Although the work has Salzmann’s name on the title-page, it should be attributed to Johann Christoph GutsMuths (1759 - 1839), who published Gymnastik für die Jugend in 1793. The first English edition of this book was published in London in 1800, without Salzmann's name on the title page. A footnote on page 89 reads: "It is to be observed, the name of Salzmann is not in the title-page of the original of this work, though there is no doubt of it's being written by him: for his name was subjoined to the advertisements in which it was announced, and in the title he calls himself Gutmuth, Erzieher zu Schmepfenthal, 'Meanwell, Schoolmaster at Schnepfenthal,' the place where Salzmann keeps a school." The translation of this book is attributed to Mary Wollstonecraft, who had also translated Salzmann’s Elements of Morality, 1790. Gumuchian 5093.

        The organization of the General Corps of Saint-Domingue.] Extrait de l'arrêté de Consule en date du 20 Vendémiaire de l'an XI. sur l'organisation de l'armeé. Titre II. Article XIII. Le corps de garde du Général en chef de l'armee de S. Domingue sera organisé de la maniere suivante

      - 2 pages manuscript on bifolio. Signed by Tabarié. With the letterhead of the "Department de la Guerre". Dated "20 Vendémiaire de an XI" (October 12, 1802). The outline of the structure and organization of the army corps of Saint-Domingue. Corps of 322 people in different ranks, the list of the ranks with the head count of each. Important military related document, during Napoleon Bonaparte's Saint-Domingue Expedition. Signed by Tabarié (Michel-Marie-Etienne-Victor, vicomte; 1768-1839) the Chief of Division at the Ministry of War (Chef de division au ministere de la guerre). In December 1801 Bonaparte sent a large army to Saint-Domingue under his brother-in-law, Charles Leclerc, to regain control of the island and curtail the measures of independence taken by the former slave Toussaint Louverture. The beginning of the military campaign was successful for France, Toussaint Louverture surrended in May 1802 but many of his generals continued a guerilla campaign against the French. At the same time yellow fever epidemic broke out and hit the French troops severely. Lacking knowledge about prevention and control measures, mortality from the disease was crucial, more than half of the French army died. Probably the need of replacement of the deceased military personnels and new strategy was the reason to draft this document by Tabarié. Important manuscript document related to the Saint-Domingue Expedition. The upper part of the paper is damaged with insignificant loss of text. Stained. Overall in good condition. 2 pages manuscript on bifolio. Signed by Tabarié. With the letterhead of the "Department de la Guerre". Dated "20 Vendémiaire de an XI" (October 12, 1802).

Wonderful romantic view of the ruins of the portico of the Roman Antinoë theater, a city founded by Emperor Hadrian in 132 AD. JC on the right bank of the Nile in Middle Egypt.

The theater was almost completely déparementé, it draws more than two full Corinthian pilasters and still wearing their capitals columns. Beyond that, we see the grove by the river Nile and the hills of ruins that are the preserve of Antinoë site. Tiny marginal foxing not affecting at all the board, otherwise excellent freshness and preservation.

        Expose des temperatures. . . .Inscribed to Giovanni Fabroni

      Versailles. Chavassieu-d'Audebert. Expose des temperatures, dans lequel on traite, par aphorismes, des divers ?tats de l'atmosphere, et des influences de l'air et des pays sur l'homme, les animaux et les plantes [cover title]. 3 large printed charts (671 x 495 mm.) folded to large 4to size and bound together. Versailles: Ph.-D. Pierres; Paris: Desenne . . . , 1802. Magenta paste paper boards, printed label on front cover, light rubbing & wear. Minor foxing, a few light stains, tear in front free endpaper. Very good copy, with the author's presentation inscription on the front endpaper: "A l'illustre Professeur Monsieur Fabroni de la part de l'Auteur." The recipient was most likely Italian physicist Giovanni Valentino Mattia Fabbroni (1752-1822); see DSB. First Edition. Chavassieu-d'Audebert's charts present a thorough analysis in tabular form of the effects of temperature, atmospheric conditions and terrain on humans, animals and plants. The first chart displays the effects of temperature and humidity on health: for example, rainy weather was said to promote chronic fevers, epileptic attacks and paralysis in humans, and blight in crops. The second chart organizes temperature and climate information by month and season, describing effects on agriculture and health of various types of years (hot/dry, cold/wet, cold/dry, etc.). The third chart presents the phases of the moon and how they affect health, the effects of climate and terrain on native human, animal and plant populations, and a breakdown of the human species by geographical type.

With: Autograph organ part in Stolze's hand to Vol. 1 of the motets. 350 x 210 mm. Sewn. 6 leaves notated on 14 staves per page in black ink. Unpaginated. With caption title "Organo" with addition in red ink: "Motetto I Singet dem H. S[ebastian] B[ach]." Organo part notated primarily on one staff, with bass figures; passages marked "Chorale" notated on two staves. All three motets transposed down a whole tone. "Singet dem Herrn" and "Ich lasse dich nicht" with tempo marks ("Andante" for the chorale of "Singet dem Herrn" in red ink). . The editor of both volumes (not credited) is Johann Gottfried Schicht (1753-1823), Kapellmeister at the Gewandhaus since 1785 and Thomaskantor from 1810. He modernized the texts; drastic imagery and references to Satan and hell are deleted. Like the autographs, the edition lacks a continuo part, leading to the misconception prevalent throughout the 19th and 20th centuries that the authentic performance practice was a cappella. The organ part by Stolze, included with the present copy, not only serves to document performance practice around 1800, but is also endowed with some authority as Stolze was a friend (and landlord) of J.S. Bach's last student, Johann Christian Kittel (1732-1809). The authorship of the motet BWV Anh. 159 has long been disputed. Part of the manuscript source is in Johann Sebastian Bach's hand, in a volume with motets by his uncle Johann Christoph Bach (1642-1703). It has traditionally been most often ascribed to Johann Christoph Bach but also to others, including Johann Michael Bach (1648-1694), as in the present copy). More recent scholarship is again discussing an authorship of Johann Sebastian. The final chorale, however, does nor occur in the source; it is a contrafactum of J.S. Bach's chorale BWV 421 and certainly spurious, most likely arranged and added by Johann Gottfried Schicht. Fritz Heitmann (1891-1953) was an organist in Berlin and an authority on Bach.

        Ängelske Sid-Captenens, federmera Predikantens Johan Newtons synnerligen märkwärdiga Rese- och Leswernes-Beskrifning. Pastoren Doctor T. Haweis.

      Carl Fr. Marquard, Stockholm 1802 - Small octavo, wear to title-page and final text leaf, unnumbered final contents page torn with loss and with rather basic paper repair; contemporary half calf lending-library binding with original borrowing rules pasted to front paste-down, joints starting but firm, a worn but not unattractive copy. Very uncommon: the first Swedish edition of this series of letters by the English clergyman and former slave-ship owner, John Newton, best known as the author of the hymn "Amazing Grace". The letters are written to Thomas Haweis, co-founder of the London Missionary Society and the editor of the 1799 account of the Duff voyage to Tahiti.After a difficult career as a young man at sea, Newton experienced a conversion in 1748, although for more than a decade he continued his association with slave-ships. It was not until 1764 that Thomas Haweis managed to get Newton the living for Olney in Buckinghamshire, the same year that this work was first published in England (An Authentic Narrative of some Remarkable and Interesting Particulars? Communicated in a series of letters, to the Reverend Mr. Haweis). This Swedish translation is based on a German-language edition of 1791. Becoming a prominent abolitionist, in 1788 Newton published Thoughts Upon the Slave Trade, a horrific account of the Middle Passage.The main text of this work is in the form of a series of "Brefwet" or letters, the first signed 12 January 1763, and the last 2 February 1763. Throughout, there are numerous quotations from the Bible, usually printed in bold, and references to the main locations associated with the slave trade, including notes on Sierra Leone, Antigua and the West Indies.

        A Treatise on the Culture and Management of Fruit-Trees;

      1802. FORSYTH, William. A Treatise on the Culture and Management of Fruit-Trees; in which a new method of pruning and training is fully described. To which is added, a new and improved edition of "Observations on the diseases, defects, and injuries, in all kinds of fruit and forest trees." With an account of a particular method of cure, Published by Order of Government. viii, 371 pp. Illustrated with 13 folding plates. 4to., bound in recent three-quarter morocco. London: printed by Nichols and Son, etc., 1802. First Edition. Forsyth (1737-1804), for whom the forsythia was named, was superintendent of the royal gardens at St. James and Kensington. The Observations on the Diseases, Defects, and Injuries of Fruit and Forest Trees had been separately published in 1791. The "particular method of cure" was a "plaister," or paste, whose application would, Forsyth asserted, cause new wood to grow and bind to the old. His invention had come to the attention of the authorities charged with procurement of sound wood for naval use, and after preliminary investigation he was paid £1500 to reveal the composition of this mixture. The success of the work was immediate, and it reached seven editions by 1824. Some light wear, but generally a sound copy.

        The Works in Natural History

      London: Printed for J. White, 1802. Two volumes, octavo, frontispiece in each volume, one handcoloured and folding, one folding plate; contemporary ownership inscription on each of the titles, contemporary marbled sheep, rebacked at an early date, retaining the original labels. The Rev. Gilbert White (1720-1793), best known for his Natural History of Selborne - a classic of both natural history and English literature - was in close contact with the leading naturalists of the day: Sir Joseph Banks, Thomas Pennant, Daniel Solander, Forster, William Curtis, and Sir Ashton Lever. He followed Cook and Banks' voyage in the Endeavour closely, and later wrote of an ironic twist: "A gent. came the other day, and said he understood that there was a Mr. White who had lately published two books, a good one and a bad one; the bad one was concerning Botany Bay, the better respecting some parish"

      Leipzig, in der Pet. Phil. Wolfischen Buchhandlung 1802. 8° XII, 398 S. mit 6 Kupferst. u. e. Bild von Ulrich Zwingli. Ohne die geologische Karte. Original-Halbleder d. Zt. (Einband ber. u. bestossen, sonst gut). = Schilderung der Gebirgsvölker der Schweitz Teil 2. Auflage:0. Joh. Gottfried Ebel (* 6. 10. 1764 zu Züllichau in preuß. Schlesien, + 8. 10. 1830 in Zürich), Arzt und Naturforscher. "Die großartige Natur der Alpenwelt wirkte so anziehend, daß E. 3 Jahre lang in der Schweiz verweilte, sie nach allen Richtungen durchwanderte und nicht blos eingehende naturwissenschaftliche, besonders geognostische Studien betrieb, sondern auch das Auge für die Sitten und Gebräuche des Volks, für Geschichte und Kunst des Landes offen hielt. 1793 als praktischer Arzt nach Frankfurt a. M. übergesiedelt, widmete E. alle Mußestunden der sorgfältigen Ausarbeitung und Veröffentlichung seiner Schweizerbeobachtungen in einem größeren Werke: "Anleitung auf die angenehmste und nützlichste Art in der Schweiz zu reisen", 1793, ein besonders für reisende Naturforscher, zugleich aber auch für Naturfreunde im allgemeinen geschriebenes Reisehandbuch, welches in dieser Richtung geradezu mustergültig genannt werden kann und dem Verfasser einen europäischen Ruf verschaffte, indem er darin eine Fülle interessanter wissenschaftlicher Beobachtungen mit vielseitigen wissenswerthen Bemerkungen über Land und Leute in höchst belehrender Weise zu verknüpfen verstand. Dieses Werk erlebte drei Auflagen (1804 und 1810) und galt selbst bei den Schweizern als eine Fundgrube der Belehrung über ihr Land. Eine "Schilderung der Gebirgsvölker der Schweiz", welche 1798 bis 1802 in Form einer Reisebeschreibung folgte, zeigt ebenso den seinen und scharf blickenden Beobachter, als vortrefflichen Darsteller. Eine Uebersetzung der philos.-politischen Schriften Sieyes', die er 1796 besorgte, machte ihn als Beförderer revolutionärer Ideen verdächtig und nöthigte ihn Frankfurt zu verlassen. Er wandte sich zunächst nach Paris, wo er neben dem ärztlichen Berufe sich fortwährend mit wissenschaftlichen Studien, - mit Sömmering mit anatomischen beschäftigte. Hier sah er, wie die hochgehenden Wogen der damaligen politischen Bewegung von Frankreich aus auch die Unabhängigkeit und Freiheit der Schweiz zu verschlingen drohten. E. stand auf der Wache und suchte selbst unter ernsten Gefahren für seine Person durch zahlreiche von Paris an verschiedene einflußreiche Schweizer geschriebene Briefe auf dieses drohende Unglück aufmerksam zu machen; er bat und beschwor dieselben, ihre Selbständigkeit durch eine aus eigenem Antriebe ins Werk gesetzte freisinnige Reform ihres Gemeinwesens zu retten und das zu befürchtende Verhängniß von der Schweiz abzuwenden. Für diese wohlwollende und uneigennützige Gesinnung ertheilte ihm der gesetzgebende Rath das schweizer Bürgerrecht, das später durch das Stadtbürgerrecht in Zürich ersetzt wurde."

El 20 de febrero de 1809, la Junta ante la que Palafox ha declinado el mando por enfermedad, capitula. Es hecho prisionero por haber traicionado a José Bonaparte y enviado a Vincennes, donde permanece hasta la firma del Tratado de Valençay. De septiembre de 1814 a octubre de 1815 estuvo encargado de la Capitanía General de Aragón. Desde mayo de 1920 pertenece al Ateneo Español "Sociedad Patriótica y Literaria".

        The Arabian Nights, in five volumes, translated by the Reverend Edward Forster.

      London, W. Bulmer & Co. for William Miller, 1802.. 8vo. 5 vols. With 24 engr. plates after Robert Smirke. Contemp. full straight-grained blue morocco, Greek key patterned boards, spine gilt in compartments, all edges gilt.. First edition of this early translation by Edward Forster (1769-1828), based on the French version of Antoine Galland, which had first appeared between 1704 and 1717. "Galland's translation [...] was quickly translated into English and German. It enjoyed a most remarkable success throughout Europe, perceptible even in children's literature, and contributed significantly to the new image which enlightened Europeans entertained of the Islamic East: after Galland, this was no longer the home of the Antichrist and of accursed heresy, but rather the ever-constant Orient beneath an eternally fair sky, boasting splendid colours and unheard-of wealth, Caliphs, Viziers, and Kadis, harems, fairy-tale princes, fairies and genies, sorcerers and sages, a world of fantastic adventure and outrageous incidents" (cf. Fück, p. 101). - After having studied law and medicine at Balliol and St Mary Hall, Oxford, Forster decided to enter the clergy. He soon "entered into an engagement with a bookseller, William Miller [...], to issue tastefully printed editions of the works of standard authors, illustrated by the best artists of the day" (DNB). The series was inceived with "Don Quixote" in 1801. His "Arabian Nights" were frequently reprinted, seeing five editions by 1854. The present set is distinguished by the beautiful illustrations after Smirke, "whom every person of correct taste will acknowledge to be second to none in this range of art" (I, vii), as well as by the elegantly gilt navy blue morocco bindings. Some occasional spotting due to paper, some slight wear and scuffing, but a beautiful set altogether. - Chauvin IV, 239. Brunet III, 1716. Graesse IV, 524. Lowndes/Bohn I, 59. DNB VII, 453. OCLC 5782874. Thieme/B. XXXI, 164 (illustrations).

Signed by Author(s) 46x 62cm ( 18" x 25"), printed withhand-written entries, vellum, with large circular seal attached to deedwith ribbon, docket on verso, mounted on stiff card backing andprofessionally framed with glass on both sides to display both the deed,docket and both sides of the seal, plain wooden frame (82x 94cm), a fineexample of an early Ontario land grant displayed in museum quality, veryrare. In my experience Lands Grants from this period with the sealintact are very scarce. In addition, these documents prior to 1810, arevery rare. I only remember seeing any of these once previously; aboutthirty five years ago in the offices of Joseph Patrick Books, Toronto.The area in the Bay of Quinte was settled in the early spring of 1794 bydisbanded soldiers of the 2nd Battalion, Rogers' Corps. The granteemarried the daughter of one of the officers, Ensign David Fraser. JoshuaBooth (1759-1813), a miller, was one of first elected members of theUpper Canadian Parliament assembled in Newark in 1792 and served as aCaptain in the Hastings Militia. "Died at Ernestown, on Saturday, Oct.31, 1813, suddenly, Joshua Booth, Esq., aged 54 years. He was one of theoldest settlers in that place, and ever retained the character of arespectable citizen. Left a widow and ten children." [Canniff: Settlementof Upper Canada, 1869]. The deed has been endorsed and signed by theLieutenant Governor of Upper Canada, Peter Hunter, who held the positionfrom 1799 to 1805. His military responsibilities as commander-in-chiefof the forces in Canada necessitated his often absence from York andgovernment was left in the hands of executive councillors (believed tobe the origination of the "Family Compact"). .

        THE ARABIAN NIGHTS (Five Volumes Complete with All illustrations)

      Printed for William Miller by W. Bulmer and Co, London, 1802., London - A gorgeously bound set with lavish gilt decorations on the spine which has five raised bands. Would be far more expensive were it not for the front cover of volume one being detached (it is present). Red, butterscotch and green colored morocco compartments for the spine lettering. Date of 1802 in gilt at bottom of spines. Probably rebacked in the early 20th century as there are replaced blank endpapers. Original calf covers with lovely tooling and gilt. All edges text block gilt. Lacking half titles but all title pages are present. All 24 engravings from the originals by Robert Smirke are present. Some of the plates with more recent tissues. The contents are remarkably clean -- almost fresh with subtle age toning for the most part. Some offsetting from plates to opposite pages of text caused light browning on these few pages. The Illustrations likewise clean and remarkably fresh in appearance. Light pencilled notes on some of the blank endpapers and one blank has light pencilling noting all five plates being present although one has been used as frontispiece whereas it had previously been placed later in the volume. Old bookplate and somewhat more recent bookplate present on front paste-down endpapers. With a bit of investment to re-attach cover of volume one, this set would retail for far more than this price. Sets of books such as this may of course require additional shipping depending on destination and method of shipping. Size: Octavo, 385, 432, 405, 461, 474pp [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Voyage Up The Mediterranean in His Majesty's Ship The Swiftsure. One of The Squadron Under The Command of Rear - Admiral Baron Nelson of The Nile, And Duke of Bronte in Sicily, With A Description of The Battle of The Nile On The First of August 1798 and a detail of events that occured subsequent to the battle in various parts of the Mediterranean

      T. Bensley, London 1802 - First edition. 43 hand-colored plates. xxiii, 309 pp. 1 vols. 4to (285 x 230 mm). A lovely, fully-colored copy of this important account of Nelson's victory at the Nile, and of travels in the Mediterranean. Willyams served as chaplain of the Swiftsure, a ship in Nelson's squadron, and he was present at the Battle of the Nile."Placed as he was in the midst of a battle as splendid and extraordinary as the page of history has ever recorded, an attendant of the chase which preceded it, and of many interesting occurrences and scenes which the shores of the Mediterranean exhibited for nearly two years after its termination, he daily minuted with his pen and pencil the observations and images which obtruded themselves upon him. The authenticity of such memorials, and the views of places and people, which the present as well as the past has rendered subjects of such warm curiosity and interest, may, as his friends flatter him, give a value to his simple diary, and the sketches, even if unskilful, of a self-taught artist" (preface).The ODNB calls this book "the first, the most particular, and the most authentic account of the battle." Willyams was a talented topographer and artist, and this is a handsomely produced book, showing the skill of the printer, Bensley.The plates are after drawings done by Willyams and include a plan of the battle, as well as views in Sicily, Syracuse, Egypt, Alexandria, Syria, Venice, Gibraltar, and other locations around the Mediterranean.The text includes well-written descriptions of all these places and more.

        THÉORIE DES JARDINS, Ou L'Art Des Jardins De La Nature.

      The enlarged and partially revised second edition, which includes significant material supplementing the original version of 1776. The newly added preface (128 pages) provides, among other things, an extended commentary on writings on garden design published since the first edition. There are also 75 pages of end notes and a new 100 page section on trees, consisting primarily of a "Tableau Dendrologique" listing the various features of over 1000 varieties of trees. Morel's THEORIE, following shorter works by Girardin and Watelet, presented the most thorough treatise on the new theories of natural garden design which dominated French taste at the end of the 18th century. It was also the first treatise on garden design in the natural style (French or English) to have been written by a professional rather than an amateur. Morel's practical experience is evident throughout, which may help account for the high esteem in which the book was held by French landscape gardeners far into the nineteenth century. Drawing heavily on Whately's OBSERVATIONS ON MODERN GARDENING, Morel rejected the formal symmetry of classical French gardens in favor of the picturesque and "natural" style associated with the English. He did not, however, actually visit England and its gardens until after the publication of the first edition, and the comments he added to this edition are the first to reflect first-hand experience of the places Whately had described. All these additions make this the generally preferred edition for purposes of study. Ganay 98. Two volumes, 8vo (21 x 14 cm); (viii) + cxxviii + 234 + (1, errata), (iv) + 340 + (2, errata) pp. + engraved frontispiece. Original plain blue paper wraps with printed spine labels; extremities rubbed; last three leaves of volume one stained; some margin soiling of first two leaves of volume two; a wide-margined copy with text with edges untrimmed.
