        A Compendious Geographical and Historical Grammar , exhibiting a brief survey of the terraqueous globe. The second edition, corrected and considerably improved. [with] A Compendious Geographical Dictionary. The third edition, embellished with maps, including those of Australasia and Polynesia. [with] JONES, Stephen. A New Biographical Dictionary. The Fourth edition, corrected

      London: W. Peacock and Sons, 1802-, 1804. Three volumes altogether, duodecimo, engraved folding maps highlighted in watercolour; uniformly bound in contemporary dark blue straight-grained morocco, all edges gilt; a fine and charming set in an original matching bookform box, gilt tooled spine. Delightful small reference library. Fine example of a gentleman's reference library in miniature, contained in its original custom-made bookform box, and including two geographical reference works - one arranged alphabetically and the other by region. The third volume is a general biographical dictionary from ancient to contemporary times. The two geographical references, which were intended as companion volumes, are of particular interest for what they show of the dissemination of information about discoveries in the Pacific to the general reading public. As late as 1802, some thirty years after the discovery of the east coast by Cook, the Geographical and Historical Grammar notes the existence of New Holland only in a postscript entitled "New Discoveries": 'New Holland, an exceedingly large island in the Southern part of the Indian Ocean, upon the Eastern shore of which, at Botany Bay, the British have, with these few years, begun a new settlement'. This statement is followed by a list of Pacific Ocean discoveries and advice to consult the Geographical Dictionary for further information. The Dictionary, here in its 1804 edition, includes folding maps of Australasia and Polynesia, with individual listings of numerous new discoveries in the Pacific. Whilst there are very brief entries for Botany Bay and New Holland, New Zealand, Otaheite, and "Papous, Land of" (Papua), there is a very detailed entry for the Sandwich Islands, including information about the history and geography of the islands, the native inhabitants, their culture and language.

        An Account of the English Colony in New South Wales

      1798-, London 1802 - Two volumes, quarto, engraved plates, complete, the first volume with 18 full-page plates and 4 engravings in the text, the second as issued with 5 full-page plates (3 with original hand-colouring) and 4 engravings in the text (2 with original hand-colouring); some toning, but a most attractive set in period-style speckled calf, spines beautifully tooled in gilt, red morocco labels and smaller lozenges for the volume numbers. Collins' marvellous account, with the uncommon second volume, which prints the first major account of Bass & Flinders. The complete first edition, published in two volumes four years apart, of David Collins's Account, the earliest history of Australia as an English colony and the most detailed of all descriptions of the voyage and first settlement, illustrated by fine engravings almost certainly after Thomas Watling. The 1798 first volume is scarce but the 1802 second volume is much more difficult to find and is of the greatest importance for its detailed chronicle of events and its narrative of voyages and expeditions of discovery, notably as regards the early explorations of Bass and Flinders. In its complete two-volume state, Collins's Account may be the rarest of the First Fleet journals. Collins was Judge Advocate who was also Secretary to Governor Phillip and his close personal friend. Collins stayed on in the colony after Phillip's departure to assist Grose and Paterson, who supervised the colony before the arrival in 1795 of Hunter, Phillip's successor. Collins left New South Wales in 1796 and completed his Account, which was based on his daily recording of events, in the following two years. The second volume, published in 1802, continues the narrative of the colony up until the departure of Governor Hunter, and includes a detailed report of the expedition of Bass and Flinders. It also includes the first published report of the koala, the earliest sighting of a wombat on mainland Australia, and the first report of the lyrebird, all three of which are illustrated in hand-coloured plates.

        Monographia Apum Angliae ; or, an attempt to divide into their Natural Genera and Families, such species of the Linnean Genus Apis as have been discovered in England?

      Printed for the Author by J. Raw, Ipswich 1802 - Two volumes bound in one, octavo, 18 plates (4 with original hand-colouring), half-titles and errata leaf, bookplate; an attractive work in early polished tan half calf, banded spine with morocco label. Australian bees collected by Sir Joseph Banks. A lovely copy of the first edition of this fundamental study of bees: this is one of only a small number of books noted by Musgrave, including those of Lewin and Donovan, published before 1805 to include notice of any Australian insects. Kirby, a keen entomologist, based a significant amount of his work on his access to the Banks collection ('has omitted no opportunity of consulting? the magnificent collection of Sir Joseph Banks, so liberally open to naturalists?'), including making comparison with specimens from the Endeavour voyage. Kirby (1759-1850) was born in Suffolk, and famously collaborated with W. Spence on the Introduction to Entomology. This is the first of his works to include any Australian specimens, although he would later jointly publish work based on collections made by Robert Brown. The actual Australian specimens from his collection were presented by the Entomological Society of London to the British Museum in 1863. Kirby's study includes a very good bibliography, noticing the works of Donovan, Fabricius, Latreille, Panzer, Roemer and other entomologists. The most relevant entry is Kirby's notice of the Melitta cyanura from the cabinet of Banks 'from New South Wales', and which 'should come next to M. signata (y), which stands with it in the same cabinet, from the same country' (Volume I, p. 212).

        Plate 249 - Melanthium Gramineum

      Paris 1802 - Pierre-Joseph Redouté A selection from Les Liliacées Stipple engravings with original hand color Paris: 1802-1816 21” x 14” Some discoloration around edges. The unequalled botanical artist Pierre-Joseph Redouté occupies a central position in the development of European flower painting. Redouté had, as pupils or patrons, five queens and empresses of France, from Marie-Antoinette to Empress Josephine and her successor, Marie-Louise. Despite many changes of regime in a turbulent epoch, he worked without interruption, a testament to his greatness as an artist. Les Liliacées was Redouté's largest and most ambitious work and is generally considered his masterpiece, arguably rivaled only by Les Roses. Produced under the patronage of the Empress Josephine, for whom Redouté worked as botanical artist at her estate at Malmaison, these pristine examples represent landmark works in the field of flower illustration. The title Les Liliacées is misleading, as the work was of a much broader scope, including representatives of the lily, amaryllis, iris, orchid, and other families. The plates were executed by means of stipple engraving, a method that the artist himself perfected when he was unsatisfied with the effects garnered by traditional copper-plate engraving. As Redouté shrewdly observed, the delicacy and subtle elegance of his compositions could only be captured using a printing method equally fine. The luminosity of stipple engraving is particularly suited to the reproduction of botanical detail. The medium involved engraving a copper plate with a dense grid of dots that could be modulated to convey delicate gradations of color. Because the ink rested on the paper in miniscule dots, it did not obscure the "light" of the paper beneath the color. After this complicated printing process was complete, the prints were finished by hand in watercolor, so as to conform to the exquisite models Redouté provided. Les Liliacées records the plants of the lily family, and related flowers, that Josephine collected for her gardens at Malmaison. Redouté's small drawings, placed at the bottom of the main illustrations, record the anatomical features of each species so that each flower could be identified with precision and cultivated to perfection. In each illustration, as in his series Les Roses, the flowers are classical "portraits" which lack backgrounds or settings. The regal simplicity of the compositions allows the viewer to focus without distraction on the beauty and delicate complexity of the plants themselves. Redoutés's work represents a uniquely harmonious blend of scientific precision and supremely delicate rendering.

        THE CABINET-MAKER AND UPHOLSTERER'S DRAWING-BOOK. IN FOUR PARTS

      London: T. Bensley, 1802.. London: T. Bensley, 1802.. viii,viii,[5]-446,60,24,[8]pp. plus 123 plates. Thick quarto. Contemporary paneled calf, gilt, a.e.g. Corners lightly worn, boards rubbed. Bookplate on front pastedown. Very minor foxing. Very good. Third edition, revised and generally considered the best edition, of this important furniture- making treatise, with a full complement of engraved plates as well as the Appendix and Accompaniment. "... in 1791 his masterpiece, THE CABINET MAKER AND UPHOLSTERER'S DRAWING- BOOK, began to be published by subscription in fortnightly sections (forty-two in all), priced 1s. A slightly larger second edition appeared in 1794 and a third with some small amendments in 1802. A German version was translated by G. T. Wenzel and published in Leipzig. It was intended for practising members of the trade, and addressed 'to Cabinet-Makers and Upholsterers in General'. The 717 subscribers were almost entirely established furniture makers, in contrast to those of Thomas Chippendale's GENTLEMAN AND CABINET MAKER'S DIRECTOR (1754, 1755, and 1762) which had included members of aristocracy and gentry. Sheraton's intention (inspired perhaps by his Nonconformist background) was to improve the work of uneducated artisans by teaching them proportion and perspective drawing, since previous manuals had been deficient in this. He firmly believed in the immutable laws of 'Geometry and real Science' and wished to show how these could be applied to the ephemeral nature of taste particularly in furniture design. In his own words his intention was to make the Drawing Book 'as permanently useful as I could and to unite with usefulness the taste of the times' (Sheraton, Drawing Book, 1802 edn, 355)" - DNB. In fact the third edition contains more than "small amendments", and has always been considered the most desirable. DNB (online).

ÉDITION ORIGINALE de cette « étude bibliographique importante sur ces collections célèbres » (Chadenat). Ces grandes collections de relations de voyages présentent l'effort des européens qui vont tenter, dès le quinzième siècle, de prendre possession du monde, matériellement et intellectuellement. Armand-Gaston Camus livre ici une savante édition critique et commentée de ces grandes collections. UN PRÉCIEUX TRAVAIL BIBLIOGRAPHIQUE SUR LES LIVRES DE VOYAGES : publiée à Francfort de 1590 à 1634 par l'atelier de Théodore de Bry, la "Collection des grands et petits voyages" se distingue par l'importance et la qualité des illustrations gravées en taille douce et réalisées pour la plupart sur des modèles authentiques. Le deuxième volume des "Grands Voyages" paru en 1591 est consacré à la Floride. Outre les récits de Jean Ribault et de René de Laudonnière, il comprend une série de 42 planches gravées d'après les dessins et aquarelles exécutés sur place par un peintre dieppois, Jacques Le Moyne de Morgues. À la suite de cette collection, l?auteur s?est intéressé à celle de la collection Melchisédech Thevenot (1620-1692), intitulée "Relations de divers voyages curieux": composée de 55 fascicules réunis en quatre volumes richement illustrés, cette collection contient des récits, parfois inédits, sous forme complète ou abrégée, de voyages effectués entre 1449 et 1672 dans les régions, pays ou continents tels que: Russie, Crimée, Tartarie, Chine, Formose, Inde, Perse, Arabie, Terre sainte, Siam, Bengale, Bornéo, Égypte, Philippines, Japon, Afrique, Amérique. Cette collection avait la réputation à l'époque de rassembler tout ce qu'un européen pouvait savoir sur le monde au XVIIe siècle. IMPORTANTE TABLE des matières, des noms d'auteurs et de lieux in fine (45 pages). BEL EXEMPLAIRE à grandes marges, parfaitement conservé dans une élégante reliure de l'époque. (Chadenat, 538 - «Mémoire fort curieux », Brunet, I-1529 - Sabin, 10328). FINE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition]

        U.S. Attorney Pierpont Edwards attempts to moonlight for Vermont's Green Mountain Boy Ira Allen, Ethan Allen's Brother

      Wallingford, [Connecticut]: , June 28, [1802] An unpublished Autograph Letter Signed "Pierpont Edwards", 2p, 7.75" x 12.5", Wallingford, [Connecticut], June 28, [1802], with integral transmittal leaf addressed in his hand to "Major General Ira Allen Colchester Vermont" concerning his inability to travel to Vermont to assist Allen in a legal dispute. Light creasing scattered throughout with minor pinholes at some fold intersections, a few minor marginal tears and chips, else overall very bright and clean. A hurried letter responding to Allen, who had requested Edwards' representation in a lawsuit against Capt. Joshua Tanton of Lutterlough Township and Silas Hathaway of Highate Township over disputed land titles. Allen complained to Edwards, then consumed with his duties as United States Attorney for Connecticut, that his rivals were taking measures "to gain my Property...to Imbarris [sic] me in Every Possible way so as to Provent [sic] me from having money to Dischar[g]e Every Demand that Can be prodused [sic] & to have money to Pay Land Taxes Defray Expence [sic] of Courts &cÃ?î. Allen also asked Edwards if he knew where he could borrow $20,000. (Ira Allen to Pierpont Edwards, 8 May 1802, John J. Duffy, ed., Ethan Allen and His Kin Correspondence, 1772-1819. (1998) Vol. 2, 728-9.) Edwards had agreed to undertake the trip and attempted the journey at the end of May, but schedules and bad roads prevented it: "Finding here an opportunity of writing to you I embrace it, being the first which has presented since I gave up my journey to Burlington ó Conformably to my promise[?] to make preparation to leave New Haven on Saturday the 29th of May, but that day proved to be unexpectedly Stormy; the next day, being the Sabbath of our Savior I could not be permitted to travel; on monday [sic] I began my journey, and travelled one day towards Burlington, but found the road so very heavy, as to render it impossible for me to arrive at Burlington, untill [sic] it would be too late, I therefore returnedÃ?". Edwards offers to attempt the journey again, upon Allenís request. Allen had only recently returned to Vermont after an eight year hiatus in Europe. He had travelled to France in 1795 seeking military assistance in seizing Quebec from the British to create an independent republic of United Columbia. While en route to North America with a stand of 20,000 muskets and 24 pieces of artillery, the British captured him at sea and impounded his cargo. He spent the next eight years in court seeking the release of his property.
