        The Natural History of British Shells including figures and descriptions of All the Species Hitherto discovered in Great Britain Systematically Arranged in the Linnean Manner with scientific and general observations on each. PLATES ONLY

      London : Rivington and Co, 1804 A collection of the plates from Edward Donovan's beautiful work on British Shells. 178 of 180 plates are present with no text. They have been bound into an inelegant but serviceable binding with buckram spine (with gilt titles) and plain boards. The binding has some wear and is a little grubby. There are no preliminaries or other notes bound with the plates. The plates have the delicate hand colouring characteristic of Donovan. They are in mixed condition. Around 30% are in good to very good clean condition. A further 19% are clean but with some noticeable rippling to the paper. The remainder have some damp staining. This is principally at the margins and generally does not affect the shells themselves. Around 41% have light staining at the margins. The remainder (around 9%) have obtrusive staining. If the plate margins were trimmed, the majority of the staining would be removed.

        To the King?s Most Excellent Majesty, this Map of the Island of Jamaica, constructed from actual surveys, under the authority of the Hon. House of Assembly, by whom it hath been examined, and unanimously approved

      The father of modern Jamaican cartography, a fantastic wall-map. 1804. London. S.J. Neele. Engraved map on 24 sheets, sectioned and mounted on modern archival paper, original colour (outline and wash) on eastern part of island; several vertical creases with some separation from backing and very minor losses, a few minor surface losses; overall age-toning; moderate spotting at lower centre.First edition. This is probably one of the most striking and sought after maps of the Caribbean Island. Its size is impressive and the aesthetical feature makes it a cornerstone for Jamaican cartography. A very large-scale map, showing physical features such as mountains, streams, and bodies of water, locations of towns and settlements, roads, mills, plantations, harbours, and offshore islands. One of Robertson?s important contributions was that he delineated the new county and parish boundaries that had been established a few years earlier. It is among the early topographic maps to show an entire country (the earliest being the Carte géométrique de la France). James Robertson of Shetland (ca. 1756-1841) was Jamaica?s first real surveyor in the sense that he worked as a cartographer rather than a land surveyor. He came to Jamaica around 1778 and persuaded the Council to give him a commission to survey the entire island for the sum of £5,000 whereupon he commenced surveys of the three counties and the entire island. In 1802 he returned to England to have his map published and subsequently returned to Jamaica. He soon left, however, to return to England where he died. All in all, the Jamaican Council paid him over £10,000 for his work. He is considered the father of modern Jamaican cartography. This grandiose map has been praised since its publication. See B.W. Higman, Jamaica Surveyed: Plantations Maps and Plans of the Eighteenth- and Nineteenth Centuries (Kingston: Institute of Jamaica, 1988) and D. Webster, "The Ubiquitous Scot" in The Map Collector, 56 (Autumn 1991), pp. 32-33Very rare; copies located by OCLC: British Library, Clements (Michigan), National Library of Scotland.

        A Brief Account of the Vision and Death of the Late Lord Lyttleton [Lyttelton]: To Which is Added an Anecdote of Lord Kaimes [i.e. Lord Kames] and the Melancholy End of a profligate Young Man

      Stanford [New York]: Printed and sold by Daniel Lawrence. 1804. First. First edition. 16mo. Stitched, laid in to later unprinted wrappers. 12pp. Foxing and toning, a good copy. Lord Thomas Lyttleton [i.e. the second Baron Lyttelton], a young man of questionable character, (i.e. "a drug addict and debaucher of women") died suddenly at age 35. Before doing so, he confided to his intimates of a mysterious lady in white, an apparition who foretold his imminent fate. For months, as Samuel Johnson's correspondent Hester Thrale noted, the ghostly story was the talk of the times. The Thrales and Samuel Johnson had met young Lord Lyttelton. Hester Thrale had even written her own narrative of the story. In Hester's account, Lytteton had claimed to have "bilk'd the B*tch" [i.e. cheated the female apparition of her prediction] only minutes before expiring. Almost twenty-five years later, stories began to circulate in American newspapers of new information regarding the young Lord's death. The Stanford, New York printer Daniel Lawrence, in the preface of this piece infers that British Admiral Wolseley had verbally narrated his eyewitness moments with the young Lord Lyttelton to Mary Knowles, the recollection being witnessed by William Savery, a Philadelphia Quaker. Mary (Morris) Knowles (1733-1807) was known as a poet and brilliant conversationalist on intimate terms with Samuel Johnson. As noted on page [3] of this pamphlet and the ODNB, she would become embroiled in a small controversy with Boswell's biography of Johnson. [ODNB]: "Knowles's reputation was further enhanced by this retelling of what can be truly considered a ghost story: Lord Lyttelton reckless and given to drink and dance, is told by a female spirit that he will be dead in three nights. Lord Lyttelton proceeds to challenge this date with Death with more amusement and pleasure, but is stricken fifteen minutes before midnight on the third day. A fellow rake (who had betted Lord Lyttelton one thousand pounds on the odds and outcome of his predicted death) suddenly recoils in horror in bed, miles away, upon mystically sensing the passing of his gambling companion. The connection between Hester Thrales, Mary Knowles, Samuel Johnson, and the "Wicked" Lord Lytellton suggests an interesting and historical constellation, perhaps one that is worth further critical examination. OCLC and Shaw and Shoemaker 5905 and 6601 cite four copies. .

        Versuche uber das Gesetz des Falls, uber den Widerstand der Luft u.uber die Umdrehung der Erd

      Dortmund: Mallinckrodt, 1804. Benzenberg, Johann Friedrich (1777-1846). Versuche ? das Gesetz des Falls, ? den Widerstand der Luft und ? die Umdrehung der Erde . . . 8vo. xii, 423, 432a-432h, 433-542, [2]pp. Additional engraved title and 8 plates, including frontispiece. Dortmund: Mallinckrodt, 1804. 206 x 127 mm. 19th century mottled boards, handwritten paper spine label, light wear at spine. Minor dampstaining and foxing but very good. Library stamps on engraved title. Marginal notes in pencil in an early hand on several leaves, pencil drawing on one plate. First Edition. Benzenberg, a German astronomer, was one of a number of scientists at the turn of the nineteenth century who conducted falling-body experiments to demonstrate the earth?s rotation and show the accuracy (or lack thereof) of theoretical predictions regarding the earth?s motion. Benzenberg?s first experiments were performed in 1802 from a church steeple in Hamburg (illustrated in the frontispiece); he followed these in 1804 with experiments conducted in a mine shaft. Benzenberg was responding in part to the work of Italian physicist Giovanni Baptista Guglielmini (1763-1817), who published his experimental research on the earth?s rotation in 1789 and 1792.

        Autogr. receipt in Italian signed.

      N. p. o. d. - Oblong 8vo. 1 p.

        Slender-Billed Curlew. Numenius tenuirostris; Sav

      This splendid hand-colored, folio-size lithograph, "Slender-Billed Curlew. Numenius tenuirostris; Sav", from John Gould?s (1804-1881) monumental book "Birds of Europe" (1832-1837) is in very good condition with light foxing throughout. Measuring 14.75" x 21.5", this lithograph magnificently displays the author?s scientific skill and attention to detail. This critically endangered wading bird is expertly hand-colored and detailed with a shades of brown feathers on top and a white and brown speckled underside. Precise lines define and detail each feather and give great dimension to the Curlew, from its head and face to tail-feathers and blue legs. Its long, slender beak used for catching food in the marshy waters, is also finely detailed.John Gould was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became an expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country?s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society.His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, ?A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.? For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. His wife Elizabeth and other artists were able to transfer his sketches to stone; hand print and hand-color them. One of the most accomplished and engaging natural history works of the 19th century, ?The Birds of Europe? was also the first of Gould's works to feature plates by Edward Lear. A total of sixty-eight images bear Lear's name, and they are among the most remarkable bird drawings ever made. Lear endowed his illustrations with some measure of his own whimsy and intelligence, and his style is at once fluidly spontaneous and realistically precise. In this way, the images of ?The Birds of Europe? are amazingly distinctive, while also highly realistic. Gould undertook this work partly in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. Gould portrayed birds native to Europe in a manner that had only been thought appropriate for the colorful species of distant places. In this way he managed to draw much popular interest back to native birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species.

        LIFE OF GEORGE WASHINGTON, Commander in Chief of the American Forces...Compiled Under the Inspection of the Hon. Bushrod Washington, From Original Papers Bequeathed to Him by His Deceased Relative. To Which is Prefixed An Introduction, Containing a Compendious View of the Colonies Planted by the English on the Continent of North America

      London: Richard Phillips, 1804-1807. 5 volumes. First edition, the English Issue published at the same time as the American issue. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Washington in Vol. 1, folding view plates in Vols. 2 and 3, a finely engraved vignette tailpiece at the end of Vol. 3, 12 large folding maps of the American colonies in Vols. 1 and 5. Thick 8vo, contemporary tree calf, spines gilt lettered and numbered in two compartments on red and black contrasting morocco lettering labels and decorated in gilt with gilt bands and period central ornamental devices in gilt. A fine and handsome set in the original English calf binding. Some light age evidence to the calf but surprisingly well preserved. Internal hinges are in good order, text blocks sound and tight. An unusually well preserved item. RARE FIRST EDITION IN CONTEMPORARY CALF of one of the great early works on George Washington. The books contain maps of important Revolutionary battles in Virginia, the Carolinas, New York, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New Jersey. There is also a fine portrait of Washington and finely engraved view plates. “John Marshall (September 24, 1755 – July 6, 1835) was the Chief Justice of the United States (1801–1835) whose court opinions helped lay the basis for American constitutional law and made the Supreme Court of the United States a coequal branch of government along with the legislative and executive branches. Previously, Marshall had been a leader of the Federalist Party in Virginia and served in the United States House of Representatives from 1799 to 1800. He was Secretary of State under President John Adams from 1800 to 1801. The longest-serving Chief Justice of the United States, Marshall dominated the Court for over three decades and played a significant role in the development of the American legal system. Most notably, he reinforced the principle that federal courts are obligated to exercise judicial review, by disregarding purported laws if they violate the Constitution. Thus, Marshall cemented the position of the American judiciary as an independent and influential branch of government. Furthermore, the Marshall Court made several important decisions relating to federalism, affecting the balance of power between the federal government and the states during the early years of the republic. In particular, he repeatedly confirmed the supremacy of federal law over state law, and supported an expansive reading of the enumerated powers.” ‘Justice Marshall greatly admired George Washington, and between 1804 and 1807 published his influential five-volume biography. The author’s Life of Washington was based on records and papers provided to him by the late president's family. The first volume was reissued in 1824 separately as A History of the American Colonies, and the work reflected Marshall's Federalist principles. His revised and condensed two-volume Life of Washington was published in 1832. Historians have often praised its accuracy and well-reasoned judgments, while noting his frequent paraphrases of published sources such as William Gordon's 1801 history of the Revolution and the British Annual Register. After completing the revision to his biography of Washington, Marshall prepared an abridgment. In 1833 he wrote, "I have at length completed an abridgment of the Life of Washington for the use of schools. I have endeavored to compress it as much as possible. ... After striking out every thing which in my judgment could be properly excluded the volume will contain at least 400 pages." The Abridgment was not published until 1838, three years after Marshall died.’ This biography, here offered in its original five volume, first edition presentation, is still regarded as one of the most important ever penned, and perhaps the only one of real substance written by an extraordinary contemporary utterly active in the birthing of the new nation to which Washington had given the very highest and most noble service during is long life.

Uria grylle; (Lath)", from John Gould?s (1804-1881) monumental book "Birds Europe" (1832-1837) is in very good condition with faint foxing throughout. Measuring 22.25" x 15", this lithograph magnificently displays the author?s scientific skill and attention to detail.Guillemots, a species of seabirds from the auk family and these illustrated are specifically Black Guillemots.

The bird in the background, in winter plumage, has a black back with white and black speckled underside and dark eyes and feet.
