        ZOOLOGIE. Oiseaux. (H. N. Pl. 6), planche dessinée par Jacques Barraband et gravée par L. Bouquet.

      Imprimerie Impériale 1802 - - Imprimerie Impériale, Paris 1802-1830, 53,5 x 70 cm (42 x 58 cm hors marges), une feuille gouachée à la main à l'époque. - Réalisée entre 1802 et 1830, elle fut tirée à 1000 exemplaires offerts aux institutions. Papier vergé au filigrane 'Egypte ancienne et moderne' visible par transparence.Planche appartenant à la série des Oiseaux, dont l'étude a été réalisée par Jules-César Savigny (1777-1851), zoologiste qui participa à la campagne d'Egypte en tant que spécialiste des invertébrés.Planche gouachée à la main à l'époque. Seuls certains rares exemplaires des planches d'oiseaux ont ainsi été peints à l'époque, l'essentiel de ces planches étant demeuré en noir.Trois minuscules trous de ver en marge, n'affectant pas la gravure, une très discrète déchirure restaurée au niveau de la cuve inférieure (10 cm) sinon excellent état de conservation.La monumentale première édition de la Description de l'Egypte en 13 volumes comportait 892 planches dont 72 coloriées, parmi lesquelles 9 volumes concernaient l'Antiquité. Les autres volumes traitaient de l'Histoire Naturelle et de l'Egypte moderne car Napoléon Bonaparte avait emmené avec lui une commission de savants de toutes disciplines si bien que, disait-on, dans sa description était emmagasiné 'le plus riche musée de l'Univers'. Cet ouvrage fut rédigé en partie par la baron Dominique Vivant-Denon avant que ce dernier soit nommé directeur général du Musée Napoléon au Louvre. Plus de 80 artistes et 400 graveurs furent engagés pour ce projet titanesque. Les dimensions des planches exceptionnellement grandes nécessitèrent la création d'une presse spéciale et d'un meuble spécifique pour les conserver.! [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Alpine Lovers; Les Amans des Alpes

      London: Published by H. Macklin, Poets Gallery Fleet Street, 1802. This is a fine colour printed stipple after a painting by Francis Wheatley, depicting two young lovers in the countryside. Wheatley was born and trained in London, and in 1769 was one of the first students admitted to the newly founded Royal Academy. Although he initially practiced as a landscape painter, by the mid 1770s he had become a popular painter of small-scale portraits and informal 'conversation-pieces'. From the 1780s onwards, Wheatley turned increasingly to genre scenes that were perfectly attuned to the sensibilities of the period. Today he is generally remembered for his Cries of London, which depicted street vendors such as milkmaids and fruit sellers engaged in their trade. Wheatley's work is distinguished by an unerring sense of proportion and rhythm, beautifully demonstrated in this perfectly simple portrait of rural love, which becomes a monumental expression of affection and desire. Webster, Francis Wheatley p. 187. Colour printed stipple. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition with the exception of being trimmed within the platemark on all sides. Some skimming to surface of paper on verso of sheet. Image size: 13 7/8 x 12 inches.

        Plate 199 - Lilium Candidum (Madonna Lily)

      Pierre-Joseph Redout?Hand-colored stipple engraving from Les Liliac?esParis: 1802-181631 1/4” x 24 1/4” framedThe unequalled botanical artist Pierre-Joseph Redout? occupies a central position in the development of European flower painting. Redout? had, as pupils or patrons, five queens and empresses of France, fromMarie-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 Liliac?es was Redout?'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 Redout? worked as botanical artist at her estate at Malmaison, these pristine examples represent landmark works in the field of flower illustration.The title Les Liliac?es 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 Redout? 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 Redout? provided.??? ??? ??? ??? ??? Les Liliac?es records the plants of the lily family, and related flowers, that Josephine collected for her gardens at Malmaison. Redout?'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. Redout?s's work represents a uniquely harmonious blend of scientific precision and supremely delicate rendering.

        A Lecture on Heads

      London - T. Bensley, 1802 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Leather bound copy of this interesting lecture with frontispiece and in text illustrations. Stevens' satiric lecture on heads, fashion, and the whims and foibles of those who have heads was first performed in 1764, and met with such popular acclaim that pirated editions soon began to surface. Lewes, an actor who performed the lecture himself, describes these problems in his Address to the Public. The lecture owes much to Stevens' observant wit, and its popularity into the 19th century to the craze for physiognomy, which it parodies. Stevens [1710-1784] was a poet and playwright, but nothing he did ever equaled the popularity of this lecture. He also achieved some minor note as (apparently) the person who coined the term merry-go-round for carousels, in a 1729 poem. Condition: The volume has been rebound and the binding is tight and firm with all pages securely attached. There is some wear to the extremities including scratches to the leather. The spine is split and the leather is peeling in places. The original title on the spine has been replaced and this is also peeling away. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright apart from the occasional spot and odd handling mark. There is a library sticker on the front pastedown and at least seven library stamps on various pages but priced accordingly and scarce in any condition. There is also an ink signature on the frontispiece. Overall the volume is in good condition..

      London - F. and C. Rivington et al., 1802 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A complete collection of the poetry, plays and essaysof Edward Young. Illustrated throughout withsixteen engraved plates, including an engraved title page and frontispiece. Young, living in a time when patronage was slowly fading out, was notable for urgently seeking patronage for his poetry, his theatrical works, and his career in the church: he failed in each area. He never received the degree of patronage that he felt his work had earned, largely because he picked patrons whose fortunes were about to turn downward. Including The Consolation, The Dignity of Man, The Brothers and many more. Though his praise was often unearned, often fulsome, he could write, False praises are the whoredoms of the pen / And prostitute fair fame to worthless men. Complete in three volumes. Condition: In amateur half-morocco bindings. Externally, quite smart, with just a few marks. Internally, firmly bound. One hinge strained. Pages are bright, though with some scattered instances of foxing throughout. Somescatteredpencilmarginaliathroughout. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        Minstrelsy of the Scottish BorderConsisting of Historical and Romantic BalladsIn Two Volumes

      Kelso - James Ballantyne 1802 - A first edition of this highly sought after work from prolific poet, Walter Scott. One of the eight-hundred copies originally published in 1802, which sold out within it's first six months of publication. Consisting of historical and romantic ballads collected in the southern counties of Scotland, founded upon local tradition. Featuring the original engraved frontispiece to volume one. Collated complete. Scott's interest in the folk traditions of the Border region stemmed from early childhood stays at Sandyknowe, when he heard ballads from the lips of his grandmother Barbara Scott and his favourite Aunt Jenny. As an older boy, he thrilled to the medieval ballads collected in Bishop Thomas Percy's Reliques of Ancient English Poetry. Scott began collecting ballads himself in yearly trips to the Borders from 1792 onwards. He first had the idea of publishing a collection in 1796, but it was not until he renewed contact with his old schoolfriend, the printer James Ballantyne, that the idea bore fruit. In 1799 Ballantyne had published An Apology for Tales of Terror which contained ballads by Robert Southey, Matthew 'Monk' Lewis, John Aikin, and Scott himself. He now welcomed the idea of publishing a volume devoted entirely to ballads, a genre rendered newly fashionable by Wordsworth's and Coleridge's Lyrical Ballads. The volume's success laid the foundations of James Ballantyne's career as a printer. 'I shall ever think', he wrote, 'the printing the Scottish Minstrelsy one of the most fortunate circumstances of my life'. Completewith the originaltwo volumes, although without the later publishedthird volume,which was published a year later. Condition: In contemporary mottled calf bindings with gilt borders. Externally, both volumes are rubbed, with slight wear to extremities. Very slight loss to the spine label of volume two. Both front boards are held by the cords only, with the rear joints slightly starting. Internally, both volumes are firmly bound with bright pages throughout. Some instances of spotting, and light off-setting to the title page of volume one. Evidence of past worming from the title page, through to xxx of volume one. Ink inscription to the endpapers of both volumes dated 1920. Overall: GOOD, with a VERY GOOD interior. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Ryacotta, in the Barramah'l

      published Thomas Daniell, London 1802 - A very fine view of the Barramah'l region that had just recently been wrested from Tippoo Sultan's grasp when the Daniells visited. "Rayakottai formed part of a chain of military outposts used by Tipu Sultan's forces on their campaigns in the Tamil country. A British flag flying proudly from a lookout halfway up the hill proclaims the recent British victory. Rings of walls encircling the central granite rock at successive levels were clearly visible to the Daniells, but can hardly be traced now" (Martinelli/Michell p.144). The Daniells' Oriental Scenery is considered to be the finest illustrated works on India. Thomas Daniell and his nephew William spent nine years in India making studies, sketches and drawings of the scenery, architecture, and antiquities that graced the countryside. They then devoted a further thirteen years to publishing their remarkably accurate aquatints. In Britain, the impact was explosive. A cult of Indian architecture, landscaping and interior decoration arose, with the Royal Pavilion at Brighton as its centerpiece. The Daniells gave the English public their first accurate look at the exotic sub-continent. Their great achievement still lies in their ability to blend the picturesque with the real, resulting in images that capture the European taste for the sublime landscape, while still remaining faithful to their subjects. The Daniells brought the romance of the English landscape to the antiquities of India and provided England with an accurate vision of this wondrous country. Consisting of one hundred and forty-four views, published in six parts, the work was issued in seven stages: three sets of twenty-four plates titled Oriental Scenery with title dates of 1795, 1797, and 1801; twelve plates titled Antiquities of India dated 1799; twenty-four plates titled Hindoo Excavations dated 1803; twenty-four plates titled Views in Hindoostan dated 1807; and twelve further plates of Antiquities of India published without a title page in 1808. All plates were engraved by the Daniells and all are taken from their drawings save the twenty-four plates of Hindoo Excavations , which are after drawings by James Wales.

        "A Song Supposed to have been written by the Sage of Monticello" [and five other satiric poems in]: The Port Folio, Enlarged (Volume 2: July, October-December, 1802)

      Philadelphia: Printed for The Editor & Elizabeth Dickens. 1802. First. Periodical. Folio. A collection of 17 weekly issues of The Port Folio, containing a series of six satirical poems directed against Thomas Jefferson, specifically concerning his relations with Sally Hemings. Each weekly issue consists of eight pages, untrimmed as originally published, and professionally sewn into four sets of consecutive issues. [Set one]: July 3 -- July 31, Nos. 26-30; [set two]: October 2 -- October 30, Nos. 39-43; [set three]: November 6 -- November 27, Nos. 44-47; [set four]: December 4 -- December 18, Nos. 48-50. Overall browning and scattered foxing, the last two issues from December (nos. 49 and 50) are clipped at the bottom right corner (with minimal loss of text), good.Founded by Joseph Dennie and Asbury Dickens in Philadelphia in January 1801, and edited by Dennie, The Port Folio quickly became the most important magazine devoted to literature and politics in the United States. During the period of its greatest influence, from 1802 to 1805, Dennie had organized a distinguished circle of mostly pro-Federalist contributors known for their "liveliness, urbanity, and wit." The Republicans and Jefferson in particular were frequently attacked in its pages. Thus when James T. Callender first published the allegation that Jefferson had fathered several children by his slave Sally Hemings (in the September 1st issue of the Richmond Recorder), Dennie was quick to exploit and expand upon the charge in this famous series of satirical poems, including one now known to have been written by John Quincy Adams. A detailed list of the six poems is available. .

        THE HISTORY OF THE DECLINE AND FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE

      T. Cadell and W. Davies, London 1802 - 8vo, Internally, each volume is in very good condition, with little age-toning, or foxing, and no markings, or scribblings. THE OXFORD COMPANION TO ENGLISH LITERATURE calls "The History." "the most celebrated historical work in English literature" (p. 261). Gibbon (1727-1794) formed his plan of the "History" during a tour of Italy in 1764-65. The first volume was issued in 1776 (in quarto size), followed by volumes II and III in 1781, and the last three volumes in 1788. It covers the period from the age of Trajan and the Antoines to the taking of Constantinople by the Turks in 1453. Subsequently re-published in 1783 in an octavo edition, of which this is "A New Edition", in twelve volumes, with the frontispiece (in vol. I, of Gibbon) from the 1780 edition. Besides the frontispiece, vol. I contains a very nice folding map (measuring about 17" square), dated 1781, and showing the "Eastern Part of the Roman Empire" designed by Thomas Kitchin. Vol. II contains an equally nice (although smaller) folding map, also by Kitchin and dated 1781, showing "Parts of Europe and Asia adjacent to Constantinople". Vol. XII contains a comprehensive General Index to the work. This is a most attractive set, intenally, being tight, clean and little soiled by age. However, the bindings are in a less than desirable state. It may be taken that the binding of each volume has some defect, whether split joints, or tape remains. Altogether, this is an ideal candidate to be re-bound by the new owner, who would otherwise have just cause to be proud of this fine work. Norton 40. Twelve volume set, uniformly bound in full speckled calf. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Anatomie générale appliquée à la physiologie et à la médecine.

      Paris, Brosson, Gabon et Cie, an X (1802) - 4 tomes en 2 volumes in-8, Vol. I : CXII, 244, (4) pp., pp.245 à 636 ; Vol.II : XXXVIII, 414, (4) pp., pp.415 à 828 ; pleine basane de l'époque, dos lisse orné, pièces de titre rouges, roulette dorée sur les coupes, tranches jaspées ; coiffes frottées, un mors fendu en tête, coins usés, travail de ver dans la marge inférieure des 12 premiers feuillets du second volume (Titre et Précis analytique des Matières) avec atteinte de quelques lettres ; sinon intérieur en très bon état, d'une belle fraîcheur. Edition originale de cet ouvrage fondamental. Il renferme bien les deux tableaux dépliants compris dans la pagination (T.I, entre la page CVI et la page CXI). Bichat développe sa conception pluritissulaire des organes (esquissée dans le Traité des membranes). S'inspirant de Haller, de Bordeu et de Pinel, il considère les organes comme un ensemble de tissus différents et complémentaires, leur assemblage permettant le fonctionnement de l'organe. Il montre que des tissus d'organes différents sont similaires et présentent la même susceptibilité aux affections. Cet ouvrage exceptionnel aura un retentissement considérable. Il fut traduit en allemand l'année suivante, en anglais en 1822, et fut plusieurs fois réédité. En Français dans le Texte, 204 : "Oeuvre capitale de Bichat et pierre angulaire du savoir médical " (M.J. Imbault-Huart) ; Garrison & Morton, 403 : "One of medicine's most important books. Bichat revolutionized descriptive anatomy." ; Heirs of Hippocrates, 756: "This is an important book, since it is a palpable step toward modern medicine." ; Lilly, Notable medical books, p. 157 ; Dobson, Anatomical Eponyms, p. 25 ("Bichat's fat pad, - fissure, - canal, - ligament, - fossa").

        Astragalogia nepe astragali, biserrulae et oxytropidis, nec non phacae, colutae et lessertiae, historia iconibus illustrata

      Paris: Garnery, 1802. Folio (20 2/8 x 13 2/8 inches). Half-title. 50 engraved plates by Plee, Tardieu, and others after Redoute (some variable spotting throughout). Contemporary French half red morocco, scarlet paper boards, gilt. Provenance: With the engraved armorial bookplate of the Earls of Derby at Knowsley Hall on the front paste-down, and inscribed with a note about acquisition dated 1816 on the front free endpaper; Robert De Belder, sale in these rooms, 27 April 1997, lot 59. First edition, and a LARGE PAPER COPY, probably acquired by Edward Smith Stanley, thirteenth earl of Derby [formerly Lord Stanley] (1775-1851), politician and naturalist, who was "prominent in the world of natural history, especially as one of the figureheads of the science of zoological classification, particularly the taxonomy of birds. He was president of the Linnean Society of London from 1828 to 1834, and president of the Zoological Society of London for twenty years from 1831 until his death. He not only encouraged the reading of accounts of new species by chairing meetings of the two societies, but contributed many scientific papers himself to the proceedings of the Zoological Society and donated many specimens to its collections. He actively encouraged collectors in the field, such as Thomas Bridges in South America, Joseph Burke in South Africa and North America, John MacGillivray in Australia and Indonesia, and Thomas Whitfield in west Africa. With contributions from such individuals, and from other zoological contacts, he formed at Knowsley Hall, near Liverpool, a private and very extensive menagerie of birds and mammals. His record of keeping and breeding rare and later extinct species of bird is still regarded as extraordinary; he was the first to breed in captivity such species as the nene (or Hawaiian goose) and the passenger pigeon. He was probably the first person to breed the Australian budgerigar in captivity in Britain, hatching two chicks in his aviaries in February 1848. Fish and reptiles were also kept in the Knowsley collections; the first live African lungfish (Protopterus sp.) seen in Britain were brought there from the Gambia in 1843. They were placed in warm tanks within the plant-houses and successfully induced from their mud cocoons. Derby also formed a fine museum from specimens purchased at auction or contributed by his collectors and contacts, and from animals from his menagerie as they died. One of the last, an Asian parrot, was an undescribed species which his assistant Louis Fraser named Lord Derby's parakeet, Palaeornis derbyanus, in 1850. Many other species are named after the thirteenth earl, such as the Stanley crane, Anthropoides paradisea; the white gallinule, Porphyrio stanleyi; Derby's puffbird, Trochilus derbyi; Lord Derby's eland, Tragelaphus derbianus; and the woolly opossum, Caluromys derbianus. In 1814 Henry Salt brought back from Abyssinia twelve new species of bird, which Derby named scientifically, calling one of them, a lovebird, Psittacus taranta Stanley. Many of the forms in his menagerie were painted by such famous artists as Josef Wolf and Edward Lear. Lear also composed many of his limericks for the Derby children" (DNB). Redoute and Candolle first collaborated on "Plantes Grasses." as it is better known; their magnum opus was "Les Liliacees" (1802-1816). Dunthorne 242; Great Flower Books, p.53; Nissen BBI 319; Hunt, Redouteana 9; Stafleu TL2 984. Catalogued description prepared for and on behalf of Arader Galleries by Kate Hunter..

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

      Paris: Panckoucke 1802 - 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.

        A Choutry, Or Place of Worship, Carved out of the top of the Rock of Trichinopoly, in high repute, by the Malabars

      Published by Edward Orme, London 1802 - An excellent view from Francis Blagdon's "Brief History of Ancient and Modern India," which was comprised of plates after drawings William Orme made of the paintings in the collection of Richard Chase Esquire by Ward and the renowned landscape artists Thomas and William Daniell. Located in a district of Southern India that was once under British rule, the Trichinopoly Rock is a renowned landmark that dominates the town of Tiruchirapalli and overlooks the surrounding landscape. A number of Pallava cave temples are carved into the rock, on top of which sits the ornate multiple-pillared Vinayaka Temple most likely pictured here. Cf. Abbey, Travel , vol. II, 424.; cf. Tooley 93. Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by Stadler after Colonel Ward, a skilled amateur artist and member of the Madras Army.

Réalisée entre 1802 et 1830, elle fut tirée à 1000 exemplaires offerts aux institutions. Papier vergé au filigrane 'Egypte ancienne et moderne' visible par transparence, protégé par une serpente. Vue de la cour du Palais, avec à droite les restes du pylône formant l'entrée du temple dépendant du Palais. Parmi les sculptures qui le décorent on remarque un relief représentant une scène de sacrifice. De l'autre côté se trouve la portion de la colonnade sud et les parties entièrement ruinées du pylône précédant la salle hypostyle. Les restes de la porte de ce pylône sont ornés de bas-reliefs relatifs au culte égyptien. On y voit encore la partie supérieure de la corniche de la porte et entre ses montants apparaissent les grandes colonnes de la salle hypostyle, le petit obélisque et dans le lointain la grande porte de l'Est, avec au loin quelques palmiers et les montagnes de la chaîne arabique en perspective. Au premier plan, l'une des colonnes de la cour du palais la seule encore sur pied derrière les autres effondrées. A proximité se trouvent aussi les restes d'un colosse en granit rose enfoui jusqu'à mi-hauteur et devant lui, des gens du pays occupés à faire des fouilles au pied de ce colosse, auxquels rendent visite des artistes français. Infimes rousseurs sur les bords n'affectant pas la vue elle-même. Très bel état de conservation. La monumentale première édition de la Description de l'Egypte en 13 volumes comportait 892 planches dont 72 coloriées, parmi lesquelles 9 volumes concernaient l'Antiquité. Les autres volumes traitaient de l'Histoire Naturelle et de l'Egypte moderne car Napoléon Bonaparte avait emmené avec lui une commission de savants de toutes disciplines si bien que, disait-on, dans sa description était emmagasiné 'le plus riche musée de l'Univers'. Cet ouvrage fut rédigé en partie par la baron Dominique Vivant-Denon avant que ce dernier soit nommé directeur général du Musée Napoléon au Louvre. Plus de 80 artistes et 400 graveurs furent engagés pour ce projet titanesque. Les dimensions des planches exceptionnellement grandes nécessitèrent la création d'une presse spéciale et d'un meuble spécifique pour les conserver.! [Attributes: First Edition]

        Esquisse d'un ouvrage en faveur des pauvres, Adressée à l'Editeur des Annales d'Agriculture, par Jérémie Bentham; publiée en français par Ad. Duquesnoy.

      - Paris, de l'Imprimerie des Sourds-Muets et Agasse, Henrichs, Treutell et Wurtz, an X [1802]. In-8, broché couverture papier bleu d'orgine, iv, 417 p., (1) f. d'errata, 2 tableaux dépliants et un grande grande planche gravée dépliante (dos de la couv. et fond de la p. de titre renforcés au papier collant, cachets et étiquettes). Première édition française, augmentée de 'Situation and relief of the poor' (1797). 3 grandes planches dépliantes dont 2 de tableaux ("Nombre de pauvres" et "Cas qui exigent des secours") et une planche gravée qui représente, les plans et vues :"construction et ameublement d'une maison de travail pour 2000 individus de tout âge, d'après le principe du panoptique, ou de l'inspection centrale". "L'aggravation de la pauvreté à la fin du XVIIIe siècle en Angleterre pose le problème du financement de l'assistance aux indigents. Aux abolitionnistes qui refusent toute aide publique s'opposent les défenseurs de l'intervention de l'État. Bentham propose en 1797 un système peu coûteux éliminant tout ce qui est superflu et mettant tous les pauvres au travail. Il préconise la création de deux cent cinquante maisons d'industrie, conçues selon le principe panoptique. Le bâtiment clos, de forme circulaire, permet de surveiller depuis la tour centrale l'efficacité et l'honnêteté des travailleurs. Ce type d'architecture inspirera le familistère fouriériste et trouvera de nombreuses applications pour des programmes carcéraux, industriels, hospitaliers ou scolaires" (Expo. BnF, 'Le Siècle des Lumières : un héritage pour demain'). L'ouvrage est traduit par Adrien Duquesnoy, homme politique, député de la Moselle à l'Assemblée Constituante. (Goldsmiths', n° 18564.1. Kress, B. 4481). Le dos de la couverture et le fond de la page de titre sont renforcés au papier collant, cachet et étiquette avec cote de bibliothèque à la couverture et au titre.

        Autograph letter signed to Dawson Turner

      Cambridge 1802 - Donn, James (1758-1813). Autograph letter signed to Dawson Turner (1775-1858). 2 – 1/2 pages. Cambridge, 14 December 1802. 217 x 191 mm. Tiny lacunae in both leaves not affecting text, otherwise fine. From English botanist James Donn, curator of the Cambridge University Botanic Gardens from 1790 until his death and author of Hortus Cantabrigensis (1796 and later editions), to fellow botanist Dawson Turner, author of several botanical works including Synopsis of British Fuci (1802) and Botanist’s Guide through England and Wales (1805), and father-in-law of William Jackson Hooker. Donn and Turner were evidently in the habit of exchanging botanical specimens with one another; in his letter Donn acknowledges the receipt of a "tin box" from Turner and states that while he "has only time, presently, to send you the Carex stricta, depauperata and clandestina," he will soon "send you a pacquet of seeds for your garden." Since he knows that Turner habitually corresponds with German botanists, Donn asks him "if you will take the trouble when you write to request of them to send you seeds of such things as they have to spare but particularly the seeds of grasses. They have no occasion to be very nice in selecting them, as many times the most common sorts are acceptable and if I have them before it is only throwing them aside . . . I have added at bottom a list of a few things I want." Under his "List of wants" Donn enumerated the following species: Milium lendigerum (i.e. Gastridium ventricosum or nitgrass); Agrostis spica venti (sweet bentgrass); Aira canescens (gray hairgrass); Bromus racemosus (bald brome); Galium anglicum (Lamarck’s bedstraw) and Centaurea solstitialis (yellow star-thistle).

        Observations on the Structure, Oeconomy, and Diseases of the Foot of the Horse and on the Principles and Practice of Shoeing.

      London: Printed for the Author. 1802 - Volume 2 only. Early 3/4 calf and marbled boards. Large quarto. 251pp. Illustrated with 15 hand-colored engraved plates. Bookplate. First edition of the concluding volume of this work (the first was published in 1798). Edward Coleman (1766-1839), a British veterinary surgeon, was appointed head of the London Veterinary College in 1792, after the death of its founder, Charles Benoit Vial de St Bel. He served in this capacity for nearly 46 years. He also served as principal veterinary surgeon to the cavalry and artillery during the Napoleonic Wars. In this work he continues his description of the organization and function of the foot of the horse and its diseases and provides suggestions for shoeing. There are 15 striking hand-colored plates (7 more than in Vol. 1). Each plate is faced with an uncolored version and separated by a tissue guard. This is a very good copy with some scattered foxing and soiling to the text and some spotting to a few page and plate margins. A large section of the upper title page has been cropped (1 1/2 by 8 inches) but no lettering is affected. The binding has been handsomely rebacked and is very good with some scuffing and edgewear. A scarce and important early colorplate book. Postage extra. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
