        A Cabinet of Quadrupeds; Consisting of Highly-finished Engravings by James Tookey; from Drawings, by Julius Ibbetson; with Historical and Scientific Descriptions

      London: Darton and Harvey, 1805. Some occasional spotting due to paper type.. Two volumes, folio, 402 x 266 mm, with 84 engraved images, engraved and printed title-pages; contemporary green straight-grained morocco, ornately decorated in gilt and blind with complex borders and panels to sides and spines, stylish dark grey endpapers, all edges gilt. A Large Paper copy, and much grander than the ordinary issue (about 400 mm as against 300-325 mm in height) with generous margins, this is a most imposing work in its two grand volumes. Originally issued in parts from 1794/5 this well-illustrated zoology has 84 copper-engraved images by James Tookey after designs by Julius Ibbetson. They vividly depict animals in their natural habitat, ranging from mice, guinea-pigs and squirrels to bears tigers and elephants, with delightful monkeys and various exotic species. At the time publication started in 1794 the Australian discoveries were still relatively recent. The description and image of the Flying Opossum are credited to White's Journal and to Shaw's Naturalist's Miscellany and Church notes that 'this animal has not long been added to the catalogue of quadrupeds'. The fine image of the "Kanguru" depicts the mob then successfully 'living in the Royal Garden at Kew, where they breed, and appear quite naturalised...'. There is a quite extensive 4-page description of the animal, with the remark that 'it is to the indefatigable ardour and enterprising spirit of Sir Joseph Banks that we are indebted for our first acquaintance with this most singular quadruped'.The accomplished wildlife and landscape painter Julius Caesar Ibbetson (Yorkshire, 1759-1812) enjoyed an early success as an artist, from the age of 17, and exhibited for the first time at the Royal Academy in 1785. He continued to exhibit until his death and was considered one of the best painters of his time, noted for his rural scenes and depictions of animals. Benjamin West compared him to the Dutch painter of the Golden Age when he referred to him as "the Berghem of England". The engraver James Tookey (active 1800-1830) specialized in landscapes and animals, as well as portraits including his 1784 portrait of Captain Cook). Provenance: Unidentified crest on all four sides of the bindings "C.G.", with nine-point coronet of a viscount.

        Suvorov's March across the Alps.

      John Vendramini London Jan 1 1805 - Aquatint (59.5 x 79 cm) by John Vendramini after a painting by Robert Kerr Porter, with contemporary hand colouring; some marginal restoration, browning. In lower margin captioned in English & French: "To His Most Excellent Majesty the Emperor of all the Russians / These plates representing the passage of the Alps by Russian troops led / by General Suwarrow on the 28 of Oct. 1799, are most humbly dedicated by his / Imperial Majesty's most dutiful Servant John Vendramini". Fine large aquatint depicting heroic crossing of the Alps by the Russian troops in the War of the Second Coalition. This is the first in a pair of coloured aquatints by Giovanni Vendramini (1769-1839) after Robert Porter (1777-1842), and depicts the standing figure of Suvorov, sword aloft, in the foreground attended by a kneeling priest and group of officers, with the Russian infantry engaging French soldiers on a bridge and mountain pass in the background; the engraved dedication & description below the image contains a vignette head & shoulders portrait of Alexander I in uniform. In 1799 Paul I granted Suvorov command of the Austro-Russian army and sent him to drive Napoleon's forces out of Italy. Suvorov erased practically all of Bonaparte's gains of 1796 and 1797, defeating his top generals Moreau (at Cassano d'Adda), MacDonald (at Trebbia) and Joubert (at Novi). After the victorious Italian theatre Suvorov planned to march on Paris, but instead was ordered to Switzerland to join up with the Russian forces already there and drive the French out. The Russian army under General Korsakov was defeated by Masséna at Zürich before Suvorov could reach and unite with them. Surrounded by Masséna's 80,000 French troops, Suvorov with a force of 18,000 Russian regulars and 5,000 Cossacks, exhausted and short of provisions, decided that to evade the French forces awaiting him he would march into the 9,000 foot high mountains of the Panikh range towards Ilants. After a difficult march, the Russian army reached Ilants on October 8, finally beyond the reach of the French. Suvorov's successful escape still cost him as much as one third of his army and all of his guns, but gained him the grudging admiration of Europe, the nickname "the Russian Hannibal" and the title of the fourth Generalissimo of Russia. Rovinskiy, Slovar Russ. gravirovannikh portretov, Vol. 3, 182.

        La botanique. Paris, Baudouin brothers, 1822. Large 4to (36 x 27 cm). With a stipple-engraved "Roussœa Simplex" (alluding to the author's name) used as a vignette on the title-page and 65 stipple-engraved plates printed in colour (inked à la poupée ) and finished by hand. Later 19th-century brown half sheepskin.

      Cat. Redoutéana 37 note; Stafleu & Cowan 9688; cf. Dunthorne 252 (1805 ed.); Nissen, BBI 1688 (other eds.). Rare second edition, printed from the original plates of the 1805 first edition, of Redouté's beautifully illustrated publication of letters on botany by the great philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778), written in the years 1771 to 1773 and apparently first published in 1782. The plates show flowers, fruits, bulbs, leaves, etc. of flowering plants and trees, some showing whole plants and others showing details, sometimes cut away to reveal anatomical details. The book serves largely as a vehicle to display the botanical art of Pierre Joseph Redouté (1759-1840) who executed all the paintings or watercolour drawings. They were stipple-engraved and (except for that used as a title-vignette) printed in colour à la poupée and finished by hand. Although Rousseau's letters had been published earlier, they first appeared with Redouté's illustrations in 1805, in both a folio and a quarto issue, the latter reissued in 1821. The present is a new edition, beautifully printed by Alexandre Baudouin and his brother on heavy wove paper.The text leaves are slightly foxed throughout, but the plates show only occasional light foxing. Otherwise in very good condition, with only a browned patch in the gutter margin of one plate, not approaching the image. Some plate numbers trimmed off. Binding scuffed but structurally very good. A lovely display of Redouté's botanical art matched to the botanical writings of the French philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau.

Important overview of Turkish trade, resources, infrastructure and municipal organisation by the diplomat David Urquhart (1805-1877). After two and a half years fighting in the Greek war of independence, Urquhart was invited to accompany Sir Stratford Canning to Istanbul in November 1831 as an advisor during negotiations to settle the Greek boundary. In 1832 Urquhart was sent to Albania to cultivate the support of Rechid Pasha, leading advisor to the Turkish sultan. Urquhart became a great supporter of Turkey, spending most of 1834 in the country, and encouraged the British government to ally with Turkey against Egypt. The present substantial book was written to inform the British political class of the possible commercial benefits of an Anglo-Turkish alliance.Some negligible discolouration in first few leaves, light wear to extremities. In very good condition and untrimmed. Scarce, particularly in original condition as here. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Thomas Paine to the Citizens of Pennsylvania

      1805. First Edition . PAINE, Thomas. Thomas Paine to the Citizens of Pennsylvania, on the Proposal for Calling a Convention. Philadelphia: Wm. Duane, 1805. Octavo, period-style full speckled sheep gilt, red morocco spine label, uncut; pp. 30. $12,500.First edition of this open letter from Paine to Pennsylvanians regarding the proposed convention to form a new state constitution. Paine's final published work, this pamphlet is quite scarce.The first Pennsylvania state constitution, of 1776, was among the most democratic of state constitutions. It was replaced in 1790 by a conservative constitution drawn up by the ascendant Federalists. The 1805 movement was a Jeffersonian reaction. In this pamphlet, Paine makes an argument attempting to prove the unconstitutionality of the power assumed by the New York legislature to grant charters. Paine was by this time a resident of New Rochelle, New York, where he lived for the remainder of his life. Paine writes: ""As I resided in the capital of your state (Philadelphia) in the 'time that tried men's souls,' and all my political writings, during the revolutionary war, were written in that city, it seems natural for me to look back on the place of my political and literary birth, and feel an interest for its happiness.""""During August, still in New Rochelle, Paine also wrote a pamphlet—the last he ever published—in support of the call for constitutional reform in Pennsylvania. He reminded Pennsylvania readers that the spirit of the Revolution was endangered in their state. Whereas their constitution of 1776 was second to none, the revised constitution of 1790 had created a form of government whose working principles were more English and monarchic than American… He roasted the old monarchic practice voting by orders or estates and argued instead for universal suffrage—among men, at least"" (Keane, Tom Paine, 511-12). Rare, with only six copies reported in OCLC. Shaw & Shoemaker 9089. Sabin 58240. Minor toning and foxing. A very good uncut copy of this Paine rarity.

        Album de la plata. Paris, Gihau(l)t frères (printed by Auguste Bry, Lemercier and Thierry), [1846]. 1mo (55 x 38 cm). 12 tinted lithographs (22 x 35 cm), depicting views in and around Montevideo, Buenos Aires, etc. Mid-19th-century binding, chemical marbled sides, schrottel marbled endpapers, rebacked in green (kidskin?) morocco, gold spine-title "D' Hastrel Montevideo".

      Benezit V, p. 428; Thieme & Becker XVI, p. 116; not in Sabin; Palau. Beautiful album, containing a series of 12 numbered tinted lithographs of sights in Argentina and Uruguay, including many ships and harbours, drawn by Adolphe d'Hastrel and lithographed by D'Hastrel himself, Cicéri, Muller, Bayot, Sabatier and Clerget. Each has a caption in Spanish and French. Adolphe d'Hastrel (1805-1874), born in Alsace, spent his youth in Tours and surroundings. He started drawing at an early age, concentrating on the Alsacian landscapes. Later he concentrated on America. The three plates that D'Hastrel lithographed himself are signed and numbered in the stone, 41-43. This series of lithographs is of great ethnological interest. In very good condition, with most plates slightly and 1 seriously foxed, some marginal water stains and 1 plate with a marginal abrasion, not affecting the images.

        A journal of remarks and observations as kept by E. G. M. . ..[mostly on board the barque Sarah of London], April 1831-14 March 1833 (with additions to 1835). with an engraved view as frontispiece, 15 full-page, 1 nearly full-page and 1 smaller manuscript maps and coastal profiles, plus a small engraved view ("Tomb of Napoleon") mounted on 1 page. Including: MORSE, Edward George. Lecture Book [notes on anatomical lectures by Joseph Constantine Carpue].[London], November-December 1828. with a matching pair of engravings of a scull on and facing the title-page, and 27 pencil and/or ink anatomical drawings (including 2 full-page), some also with red. 4to (19.5×16.5 cm). Contemporary sheepskin parchment.

      A manuscript ship's journal kept by Edward George Morse (Bromyard 1805?-Deal post 1850?), who no doubt served, among other functions, as the ship's surgeon. Morse made his earliest dated entries in April 1831 at the island Mauritius in the Indian Ocean and others at Madagascar and its surrounding islands from May to August 1831. Morse provides extensive notes on the natural history, topography and people of the Seychelles, Madagascar and the neighbouring islands, and provides detailed maps of many of the islands and coastal areas, along with a few coastal profiles. The two manuscripts are written in a single album of laid paper. Morse used it 1828 to take notes when he attended the London lectures on anatomy and blood circulation by the innovative surgeon Joseph Constantine Carpue, who had pioneered facial reconstructive surgery by introducing ancient Indian techniques. He was famous for illustrating his lectures with chalk drawings, which no doubt served as the models for the anatomical illustrations in Morse's notes. A few clippings and hand-written notes have been inserted.

        The roadsters album.London, George Thomas Fores & Arthur Blücher Fores, 1845. Large folio (38 x 28.5 cm). With an extensively illustrated aquatint title-page, unsigned, but drawn by Henry Thomas Alken (1785-1851), and 16 aquatint plates drawn by Newhouse. Title-page and plates coloured in great detail by a contemporary hand in opaque gouaches and watercolours, and highlighted with shellac. Gold-tooled, red morocco for Henry Arthur Johnstone (ca. 1900), leather endleaves with Johnstone's 1899 blind-stamped ex-libris, top edge gilt.

      Abbey, Life 407; Tooley, Coloured plates 346; WorldCat (7 copies). First and only edition of a subtly humorous album on travel by horse-drawn carriage through the English countryside at the time of publication, beautifully illustrated with finely coloured aquatints after drawings by Charles B. Newhouse (ca. 1805-1877). Each of the 16 plates has a caption in English and most depict, often quite vividly, the mishaps that can occur underway, giving the book a touch of the ironic humour that Norman Thelwell was to capture in his horse cartoons more than a hundred years later. The plates have been coloured with great artistry and skill, with skies and clouds often executed wholly in watercolour, so that each plate almost becomes a painting in its own right.With a 19th-century armorial bookplate transferred from a previous binding, with the foot torn off, and the blind-stamped ex-libris of Henry Arthur Johnstone. With the illustrated title-page and all plates in very good or fine condition. With the extremities of the binding slightly worn, but still very good. A beautifully-coloured copy of a rare, beautiful and amusing book of views of travel by horse-drawn carriage.

        Report of the Trial of the Hon. Samuel Chase, one of the Associate Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States, before the High Court of Impeachment, composed of the Senate of the United States, for charges exhibited against him by the House of Representatives..

      Baltimore: Printed for Samuel Butler and George Keatinge, 1805. First edition. Three quarter morocco over marbled boards. A very good copy, moderate wear along joints and extremities, scattered foxing.. [6],12, [3]-234, [205]-244, [237]-268, 6, 68 pp. "... In the name of themselves, and of all the People of the United States, for High Crimes & Misdemeanors, supposed to have been by Him Committed, with the Necessary Documents and Official Papers, From his Impeachment to final Acquittal. Taken in Short Hand by Charles Evans, and the Arguments of Counsel revised by them from his manuscript." Complete but quite oddly numbered as issued: numbers 50-51 are omitted, numbers 205-212 repeated; extra numbers are p. 101*-112*, 212* (i.e. 213*)-234*, 237*-244*. Chase (1741-1811) was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. His impeachment and trial, the only one ever of a U.S. Supreme Court justice, was politically motivated due to his strong stance against the Republicans and Jeffersonianism. Had the Republicans been successful, the conviction would have greatly undermined the independence of the judiciary. "Chase's acquittal meant that John Marshall and his court were safe from future attacks of this kind. It also demonstrated to Jefferson and future presidents that impeachment was a clumsy and inefficient way to handle politically hostile judges. On the other hand, members of the judiciary learned that it was dangerous for judges to use the bench to express political opinions that were contrary to prevailing democratic beliefs. After this confrontation, John Marshall attempted to establish the Supreme Court as an institution that was considered "above politics" and concerned only with legal-juridical questions," (ANB).

        Finely illustrated scroll on paper in brush and color, 270 x 8670 mm., silk brocade endpapers

      [Japan]: at end: "copied in summer of 1805 by Ikai."Our beautifully illustrated scroll depicts the preparations and actual instruction session for the emperor or prince on the biwa, a plucked lute brought to Japan from China in the late 7th century. Pear-shaped and generally with four or five strings, the biwa immediately became one of the most important musical instruments of gagaku, the traditional court music of Japan.The beginning of this scroll depicts the procession of a member of the royal family (quite possibly the emperor himself or a prince) and his entourage on his way for instruction on the biwa with a music teacher. Various members of different ranks wearing very formal attire are part of this procession. Sixteen members precede the royal member who is being carried in his curtained tagoshi (a litter), carried by nine men, and followed by more members of the royal member's staff.The next scene depicts more of the procession but here we see the actual biwa being carried by four men. There is a caption above the biwa, which is concealed by a drape, explaining this is a royal and precious instrument (gyobutsu or gomotsu, "the emperor's collection"). There are another ten men, including four archers, following the biwa. Then we see another, less elaborate, tagoshi, carried by six men and followed by nine men.Then there is manuscript text in a fine hand, describing what will next take place. We see the biwa, wrapped in fine fabric, being take out of its travelling case. This is followed by text, again in a fine formal hand, stating that the royal member and the biwa teacher both arrived with an account of the forthcoming activities (breakfast, order of entering and seating for the lesson, who handles the actual biwa as it makes it entrance into the practice room, and tuning the biwa and plucking it seven times. After all this, the teacher leaves the room and the royal family member enters. This is followed with a description of what will follow: this fine instrument has been part of the royal collection for 1000 years and the royal family member and teacher will now meet.Now we see the royal member receiving instruction from the teacher. Both are holding biwa and the royal family member is seated on a platform, facing the teacher (but, of course, we do not see his actual face!). This scene is framed on either side by delicate blue clouds.At the end, there is a poem with explanatory text. There is a list of musicians, their ranks, and their instruments, listing first the emperor or prince (called denka).The final text states this was copied in the summer of 1805 by Ikai. This was Masakoku (?) Ikai, who was a cabinet member of the Tatsuno fiefdom in Hyogo Prefecture (whose head was Yasutada Wakisaka).The last emperor to play the biwa with considerable skill was Kokaku (reigned 1779-1817) and we believe this scroll describes his musical activities.Minor worming, carefully mended. Otherwise in fine and fresh condition.

        Extraordinary characters of the nineteenth century

      London: J. Parry, 1805. With frontispiece and 14 additional engraved plates, all hand-colored. Contemporary half calf on marbled boards; marbled paste-down, text clean with very minor toning throughout. A fine copy. Very rare and curious work which was apparently never finished, illustrating original portraits and caricature etchings. A medley of "extraordinary persons . . . which are seen in the streets in or about London", the book contains plates and descriptions of 14 characters, including the Irish giant Patrick O'Brien; Miss Lucy Wanmer, a thirty-inch-tall 53 years old woman; Mr. Daniel Lambert, the heaviest man in England; and Alderman Boydell, proprietor of the most successful print empire of the day. Little is known about the publisher or the engraver, J. Parry. A record at the Folger Shaekspeare Library suggests he is the Manchester painter Joseph Parry (1744-1826). The number of plates varies in each copy; there appears to be as few as 8 plates and as many as 20. OCLC lists copies at the Folger, New York Public, Yale, Universities of Illinois and North Carolina, and the Wellcome.

Modern half calf over older boards, old paste downs and fly-leaves, spine with raised bands, marbled boards, red edges. Owner?s initials C. E. B. on title and with an old library stamp.

(A copy of ?Conspectus fungorum? was given to Elias Fries by his teacher, the professor A. J. Retzius.) The authors give references to 1100 species from the Niesky region in Sachsen, of which 127 were new. Both J. A. von Albertini (1769-1831) from Moravia and the American L. D. von Schweiniz (1780-1834) were brothers of the Moravian church, and mycologists. Schweiniz was in Niesky to study theology but his interest in botany led him to a collaboration with the professor in natural history Albertini, also his co-religionist. Schweiniz also engraved the plates. They were forerunners in observing the spore colours as a reliable taxonomic criterion (Ainsworth p. 263). The lawyer Joachim Moritz Wilhelm Baumann (1766-1849) in Trebsen had a large library in Natural History which was sold at an auction in 1850. The Dutch mycologist Hendrik Sijbert Cornelis Huijsman (1900-86) was an ophthalmologist by profession but thanks to his great interest in mycology he became a leading agaricologist in the Netherlands.
