        La Gastronomie, Poëme...suivi des Poésies fugitives de l'Auteur

      Engraved frontis. & three engraved plates. 266 pp. 12mo, cont. pale brown calf (joints with tiny cracks), sides decorated with a frame of gilt flower stamps, spine gilt with stamps of fans, people, & other motifs, a.e.g. Paris: Giguet & Michaud, 1805. "Quatrième Édition, corrigée et augmentée." A very pretty copy of this celebrated poem on gastronomy which went through a number of editions. The charming frontispiece, drawn by Myris and engraved by Delignon, depicts a party of libertines at the table. The other three plates, drawn by Myris and Monsiau, depict the Roman Senate at the moment of the origin of turbot in spicy sauce; the drunken aftermath of a party interrupted by Vatel, the chef to Louis XIV; and the manufacturer of the "jambon de Mayence" being awarded laurels at a celebratory dinner. Fine and pretty copy of this charming book. Early book ticket of the bookseller Renault of Rouen and the bookplate of Raymond Oliver, chef and owner of Le Grand Véfour restaurant in Paris. The first edition appeared in 1801. ? Simon, Bibliotheca Gastronomica, 196. Vicaire, cols. 83-84.

        Catalogue des Livres de M. A.H. Anquetil-Duperron; Voyageur aux Grandes Indes, Interprète de France pour les Langues Orientales..

      dont la vente se fera…le mardi 2 vendémiaire an 14 (24 septembre 1805), et jours suivans. 2 p.l., viii, 236 pp. 8vo, attractive antique calf, double gilt fillet round sides, flat spine gilt, uncut. Paris: veuve Tilliard et Fils, 1805. The rare sale catalogue of the library, rich in oriental books and manuscripts, of Anquetil-Duperron (1731-1805), French orientalist and brother of the historian Pierre Anquetil. Abraham Hyacinthe had a fascinating early life: while unsuccessfully studying for the priesthood in Paris and Utrecht, he developed a passion for Hebrew, Arabic, Persian and other languages of the East. He travelled to India as a private soldier in 1754 in order to search for the works of Zoroaster. Granted free passage, he learned modern Persian in Pondicherry and Sanskrit at Chandernagore. When war broke out between France and England, Anquetil-Duperron travelled widely throughout India on foot, learning further languages and studying the antiquities and sacred laws of the Hindus. He returned to Europe in an English vessel, ultimately arriving in Paris in 1762 with 180 oriental manuscripts. He devoted many of the following years to scholarship, editing and publishing many important oriental texts. The French Revolution seems to have greatly affected him: during that period he abandoned society and lived in voluntary poverty on a few pence a day. A fine copy. 1600 lots and priced throughout in a contemporary hand. From the library of Jean Viardot. ? Gustave Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, col. 408-"Ce catalogue est curieux, surtout pour les livres en langues étrangeres."

        Account of a Series of Experiments, shewing the Effects of Compression in modifying the Action of Heat. Read in the Royal Society of Edinburgh, June 3. 1805

      Five engraved plates & tables in the text. 1 p.l., iii, 115 pp. Large 4to, modern calf-backed marbled boards (minor foxing, faintest dampstaining to outer margins in second half of book). [Edinburgh: 1805]. First separate printing, later published in the Transactions of the Royal Society of Edinburgh. "This important memoir, which made the author the founder of experimental geology, contains his classic experiments undertaken in support of the Huttonian Theory."-Sotheran, Vol. II, 8816. "Hall followed experimental methods; he selected different varieties of ancient basalt and lavas from Vesuvius and Etna, reduced them to a molten state, and allowed them to cool. At first he arrived only at negative results, as vitreous masses were produced; but he then retarded the process of cooling, and actually succeeded in obtaining solid, crystalline rock-material. By regulating the temperature and the time allowed for the cooling and consolidation, Hall could produce rocks varying from finely to coarsely crystalline structure. And he therefore proved that under certain conditions crystalline rock could, as Hutton had said, be produced by the cooling of molten rock-magma…These results were afterwards confirmed by other experimentalists. Thus Werner's theory that crystalline rock represented in all cases a precipitate from water was shown to be inadequate, and it was incontestably proved that crystalline rock might originate from molten rock when slowly cooled under pressure."-Zittel, pp. 73-74. Very good copy. ? Adams, The Birth and Development of the Geological Sciences, p. 239. D.S.B., VI, pp. 53-56. Geikie, The Founders of Geology, pp. 317-25.

        History of the Rise, Progress and Termination of the American Revolution. Interspersed with Biographical, Political, and Moral Observations. In Three Volumes

      Boston: Printed by Manning and Loring for E. Larkin, 1805. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Three octavo volumes in original tree sheep with red spine labels; unrestored. Scuffing to boards, front joints on Vols. 2 and 3 starting, mild foxing; very good Bookplate of Townsend Wm. Thorndike on front pastedown of each volume, and his signature on each rear pastedown. First edition of one of the most important early histories of the American Revolution, described by Howes (W-122) as the "first important historical work by an American woman." In this work she specifically avoided creating a "dry narrative of military havoc," devoting considerable space the character of leading figures of the Revolution, many of whom she knew well. According to ANB, though the work was relatively optimistic about the future of the new republic, "Warren's essential differences from the Federalist approach remained unmistakable: she never stopped insisting that true liberty could only be the expression of a virtuous citizenry, and could not be managed or maintained through merely institutional manipulation.

        Portulan de la Mer Méditerranée ou guide des pilotes côtiers

      Marseille , Mossy, 1805 in 8 basane racinéede l'époque , dos orné , excellent exemplaire , n'ayant servi qu'à xavier de Maistre. Ouvrage rare préfacé par l'éditeur ainsi: "Les éditions qui ont successivement paru du Portulan de la Mer Méditerranée, par H. Michelot, se trouvant épuisées, j'ai cru faire une chose agréable aux Navigateurs d'en donner une quatrième. La bonté et l'utilité de cet ouvrage, devenu le manuel des Navigateurs, sont justifiés par l'usage journalier qu'ils en font. L'auteur, dans sa préface que je me bornerai à analyser, prévient le Lecteur que, dans un ouvrage fait par un Marin et pour des Marins, il ne doit pas s'attendre à l'élégance de style et à la pureté de langage qu'on a droit d'exiger dans tout autre ouvrage; mais il assure que ces négligences sont rachetées par l'exactitude de ses observations."

      Artaria, Vienna 1805 - Incisione in rame, eseguita da F. Reisser. Carta in quattro fogli riuniti e montati su tela a stacchi. Di notevole rarità, formato ed interesse storico: a seguito del trattato di Luneville del 1801 il nuovo confine fra francesi ed austriaci venne spostato rispetto a quello determinato dal trattato di Campoformio che aveva dato la Lombardia alla Francia e il Veneto all'Austria. Il nuovo confine viene spostato lungo l'Adige creando una situazione assai delicata poiché la provincia di verona e la stessa città erano divise in due: i francesi sulla riva destra dell'Adige (centro città) e gli austriaci sulla sinistra (Veronetta). Lo status rimase tale fino al 4 febbraio 1814 gli austriaci rientrarono in città da liberatori.Il meridiano d'origine è quello dell'Isola del Ferro. I limiti cartografici sono: nord, Prunecken (Brunico); sud, Mirandola; est, Trieste; ovest, Lonato-Caastiglione. Orografia a tratteggio a luce zenitale. Le fortezze e le città grandi sono rappresentate schematicamente in pianta. Gli altri abitati con torri e case. Sono pure indicate le miniere di rame, di ferro, le stazioni di posta, ecc. Sono tracciate le strade. Confini a colori. Scale grafiche in miglia d'Italia. Molto ben conservata anche se rimontata su tela recentemente a fini conservativi. MARINELLI, Saggio, ecc., n. 1428.

        A System of Mechanical Philosophy. With notes, by David Brewster.

      FIRST EDITION. Robison, who died in 1805, was the principal contributor to the third edition of the Encyclopaedia Britannica. His articles included two on steam and steam engines, which were republished by James Watt, the famous engineer and inventor, in 1818, and constitute Watt's only publication on his inventions. The majority of Robison's articles as well as some other material are here republished, and the editor Brewster prevailed on Watt to bring the two on steam engines up to date with notes and additions. Robison was himself acquainted with Watt; indeed it was he who first directed Watt's attention to the steam engine, as Robison himself recounts in volume 2.The first volume is on dynamics, projectiles, corpuscular action (including Boscovich's theory), and strength of materials (a term he was apparently the first to use). The second includes the articles on steam, and hydraulics; the third is on astronomy, the telescope and pneumatics; and the fourth is on electricity, magnetism, sound, music, watch-work, and seamanship (Robison represented the Board of Longitude in testing Harrison's chronometer).Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca mechanica, 280.

        1805 inventory including list of slaves in Louisiana

      New Orleans, 1805. Very good condition. A manuscript inventory of partnership from the period in which Louisiana had just been sold by Napoleon to the United States, listing slaves owned by one of the leading members of the Acadian community, Michel Cantrelle, and his brother in law, Jean Baptiste Poeyfarre. The 13 page manuscript document, done in a legalistic style, lists 7 slaves owned by Cantrelle, and 10 owned by Poeyfarre. The Cantrelle slaves are: Etienne, Catiche, Jean, Jupiter, Liberte, [Priamure], and Julien. The Poeyfarre slaves are: Celestin, Etienne, Fanny, Francoise, Honore, Henriette, Lindor, Louise, Pierre and Jean Baptiste. The dollar values listed with each slave name are relatively low; perhaps these refer to monies they brought to the partnership from being rented out. Cantrelle (1750 - 1814), son of Jacques Cantrelle (a prominent indigo plantation owner) and Marie Marguerite Larmusiau, served as a lieutenant under his brother-in-law Captain Nicolas Verret in the Militia of the First Acadian Coast during the Revolutionary War. When Verret died in 1775, Cantrelle was appointed commandant of the district from Fort Vacherie to Ascension Parish. When Louisiana became part of the United States in 1803, Cantrelle was reappointed Commandant of the Acadian Coast by Governor Claiborne. In 1805 he was commissioned Parish Judge of the new parish of Acadia and in 1807 became the Judge of St. James Parish, a position he held until 1812. The document opens with a list of open accounts, arranged alphabetically by last name. Under "C" we see Michel Cantrelle listed as "Commandt as well as his father, Jacques Cantrelle, and other Cantrelle family members. The document concludes with a value of the unsold inventory of the enterprise: "Remis aussi a M. & Mme Cantrelle le 26 juin 1805, les marchandises invendues restantes au magazin ... a la somme de $2,404." 8 1/4 x 12 3/4", on laid watermarked paper.

        La Perruche Ara, à gorge variée. Plate 16.

      Paris 1805 - Original stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, with strong colour, trimmed to just outside plate-mark, small tear to left side, otherwise a fine copy with clean, strong colours. Dimensions: 347 by 260mm (13.5 by 10 inches). From Levaillant's "Histoire Naturelle des Perroquets", which is considered the most comprehensive and complete catalogue on the subject. This magnificent work includes some of the most lively and colorful bird illustrations ever created. They capture not only the defining characteristics of the species, but also the charming personality of the individual bird. This exquisite monograph was written by Francois Levaillant, an adventurer and natural historian, who was one of the first to record sightings of Australian parrots. Barrband's skill was greatly esteemed and his name lent cachet to the sumptious work authored by Levaillant. Barraband's brilliantly colored engravings of exotic birds coupled with Levaillant's precise descriptions represent the height of realistic bird art. Jacques Barraband achieved great artistic notoriety for his work at the Gobelin tapestry works, the Sevres porcelain factory, and the palace of St. Cloud before coming to work for the French naturalist Francois Levaillant in the early years of the nineteenth century. Barraband collaborated with Louis Bouquet and Langlois to create the engravings for this work. The plates were carefully inked "a la poupee" with brilliant colors and pulled from the press. Nuances were then added by hand. In his work, Barraband often shows his subject in profile perched on a short tree branch. No other artist equalled his mastery in the rendering of feathers, in evoking their fragility, stiffness or incredible lightness. He displays a preference for harmonies of blues and greens, and reds and yellows. The evocative power of these realistic and precise bird renderings, that feature all the colors of the rainbow, is striking.

        AFRICAN MEMORANDA Sierra Leone SLAVERY 1792

      AFRICAN MEMORANDA Relative to an Attempt to Establish A BRITISH SETTLEMENT ON THE ISLAND OF BULAMA ( BOLAMA ) ON THE WESTERN COAST OF AFRICA IN THE YEAR 1792 With a brief notice of the neighbouring tribes, soil, productions &c. And some observations on the facility of colonizing that part of Africa, with a view to cultivation; and the introduction of letters and religion to its inhabitants: but more particularly as the means of gradually abolishing African slavery. Published in London in 1805, this is the First Edition of Philip Beaver's account of his attempt to set up a settlement on the island of Bulama, off the coast of Sierra Leone ( Guinea-Bissau ) Philip Beaver (28 February 1766 - 5 April 1813) was an officer of the Royal Navy, serving during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries. He played a varied and active role in several notable engagements, and served under a number of the most notable figures of the Navy of the age. Beaver was born in Lewknor, in Oxfordshire on 28 February 1766 to the Reverend James Beaver, curate of Lewknor. His father died when Philip was eleven, leaving the family impoverished. His mother accepted the offer of Joshua Rowley, then captain of HMS Monarch to take Philip to sea with him. Philip Beaver entered the Navy in October 1777, becoming midshipman aboard the Monarch during 1778. Whilst in this post, he witnessed the Battle of Ushant on 27 July 1778. He remained with Rowley and accompanied him when Rowley took command of HMS Suffolk in December 1778 and sailed her to the West Indies. Rowley was then appointed rear-admiral and hoisted his flag in a number of ships, including HMS Conqueror, HMS Terrible and HMS Princess Royal. Beaver followed him to each one, and in doing so served as part of fleets between 1779 and 1780 at times under the command of Admirals John Byron, Sir Hyde Parker and Sir George Rodney. His ship then came under the overall command of Sir Peter Parker at Jamaica, where Beaver spent the rest of the war. He was promoted to lieutenant by his patron, Admiral Rowley, on 2 June 1783. He spent the next ten years living with his mother at Boulogne. His naval service during this period was limited to a few months in 1790 and in 1791, during the mobilizations in response to the Spanish and the Russian armaments. AFRICA Beaver returned to a more active form of service in 1791 when he participated in a scheme for colonizing the island of Bulama near Sierra Leone. He departed England on 14 April 1792, but the affair quickly ran into difficulties. The settlers were described as idle and dissipated. Beaver was in command of the Hankey, a small ship with sixty-five men, twenty-four women, and thirty-one children, mostly seasick and all useless. Even after their arrival discipline was non-existent, and the directors of the project quickly lost heart and returned to England. Beaver was left in command and spent the next eighteen months attempting to make the settlement a success. Most the colonists died and the remainder abandoned the colony in November 1793 and made their way to Sierra Leone. Beaver went too, and obtained passage back to England, arriving at Plymouth on 17 May 1794. He was later to publish an account of his experiences, entitled African Memoranda in 1805, which contained his thoughts, which were anti-slavery in nature. THE BOOK book is bound in a contemporary three quarter leather binding with marbled boards and marbled page edges, the binding has be rebacked retaining the original spine leather, internally book is ILLUSTRATED with a LARGE FOLDING MAP measuring 26 inches by 29 inches, the map is partially hand coloured, also two full page plans, 500pp, bears the Armorial bookplate of its original owner, Arthur Maister of Kingston upon Hull, the bookplate is dated 1815 CONDITION the binding has some edge rubbing with some wear to the leather, as mentioned the book has been recased which means the leather joints are in good order with no cracking, internally there is a tear with no loss to the large folding map, and a small area of edge loss to the map with does not affect the printed area, some light foxing to a few pages else contents generally nice and clean A NICE EXAMPLE OF THE FIRST EDITION ON A CONTEMPORARY LEATHER BINDING COMPLETE WITH THE LARGE MAP AND PLANS

        Etudes de Giroflee a rameau, et Giroflee jaune

      Paris: Vilquin, 1805. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand by Ruotte. An exquisite plate of three sprays of variously coloured gillyflowers or stocks from arguably the most beautiful botanical work ever produced: "a work of outstanding importance and interest".Contemporary with the work of Redouté, 'Collection des Fleurs et des Fruits' is one of the earliest examples of stipple engraved and colour-printed botanical illustration. Published in 12 cahiers (or parts) of 4 plates each, the work was compiled to assist designers of porcelain and fabric, with the plates often showing flowers grouped together, usually matched according to their flowering season.The greatest collection of flower books to be sold at auction in the 20th century was the de Belder collection, sold by Sotheby's in 1987. The catalogue was intended as a true reflection of the uniqueness of the collection, and the cover illustration selected to represent the best of the best was an image from Prevost's 'Collection des Fleurs et des Fruits'.Dunthorne describes it as, "a work of outstanding importance and interest...issued for the specific purpose of maintaining the great French tradition for excellence of design and draughtsmanship. Perhaps no other prints are more worthy of carrying on the tradition of Jean Baptiste and van Spaendonck than these fine examples of Prévost. Whether bouquets or sprays of flowers or fruit, they possess a splendour and freshness amounting almost to fragrance, which is largely due to the quality of the colour printing" (Dunthorne, p. 33).Cf. Dunthorne p. 229; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p. 127; cf. Nissen BBI 1568; cf. Pritzel 7332; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8319.
