        Tratado theorico e pratico das chagas, precedido de hum ensaio sobre o tratamento cirurgico da inflammação e suas consequencias; e terminado por huma dissertação acerca dos tumores brancos das articulações ? traduzido em portuguez com varias annotações por Manoel Joaquim Henriques de Paiva ?.

      Lisbon, João Procopio Correa da Silva, n.d. (ca. 1798-1806). - Typographical headpiece on p. [1]. viii, 291 pp., (3 ll., 1 blank l.), 1 engraved plate. 4°, contemporary tree sheep (some wear, especially at extremities), flat spine with gilt fillets and green leather lettering piece, gilt letter, edges sprinkled blue. In very good condition. Numbered "196" in red pencil in blank margin of title-page. ---- Apparently the First Edition in Portuguese, including significant annotations by the translator, of Bell's @A Treatise on the Theory and Management of Ulcers, Edinburgh, 1778, which was an important classification of ulcers, including those caused by venereal disease and herpes (pp. 230-45 and 207-30), and by cancer, impetigo and scurvy. The introductory section is on inflammation, a frequent occurrence with ulcers or sores; the engraved plate shows the tools and procedure for treating an inflamed knee. Although best known for his work on venereal diseases (he was the first to distinguish between gonorrhea and syphilis), Bell made his greatest contributions in the field of surgery, producing a six-volume work on that subject.The translator, Manuel Joaquim Henriques de Paiva (b. 1752 in Castello Branco, Portugal; d. 1829 in Bahia), was one of the foremost physicians of his time. He exercised considerable influence on Brazilian and Portuguese medicine, particularly by his activities as a promulgator of foreign medical doctrines. He translated numerous medical works into Portuguese and was one of the first to introduce the ideas of John Brown to Portugal and Brazil, mainly through translations of Brera and Weikard. Exiled from Portugal for being sympathetic to Junot, he spent most of the last 20 years of his life in Bahia, as a professor at the Academia Medico-Cirurgica. Our date of ca. 1798-1806 for this work is based on other works in our files printed by João Procopio Correa da Silva.---- Lisbon, Faculdade de Medicina, @Catálogo da colecção portuguesa I, 232-3.

        A Natural History of Uncommon Birds, and of Some Other Rare and Undescribed Animals . [With:] Gleanings of Natural History Exhibiting Figures of Quadrupeds, Birds, Insects, Plants, &c

      Published by Will. Gardner . C. Rickaby, Printer [vols. 1-5]; Printed by George Sidney [vols. 6-7], London 1806 - Early nineteenth century red morocco, bound by J. Wright, covers with an elaborate gilt border composed of small tools, spines in six compartments with raised bands, morocco lettering pieces in the second and third compartments, the others with an overall repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges A spectacular set of the second edition of "one of the most important of all bird books, both as a fine bird book and a work of ornithology" (Fine Bird Books). This issue of the second edition, bound circa 1840, benefits greatly from being published at a time when two book-arts were at a high point: the art of hand-colouring was at its most sophisticated and the design and execution of bindings was equally exceptional. The colouring in this issue has the clear jewel-like quality that is a feature of the work of the best colourists of the Regency period. In the present set, The Natural History of Uncommon Birds is largely printed on wove paper, with the text watermarked 1800-1802, with the plates watermarked 1816 (though with at least three plates on earlier laid paper [e.g. 177, 184 and 194]); the Gleanings of Natural History is with the text printed on wove paper (watermarked 1802-1803) but with the plates mostly printed on laid paper, though with some plates on wove paper (watermarks to 1822). Edwards "has been well described as an unscientific but very accurate describer and painter of animal life, and his writings will always remain of paramount authority, from the faithfulness of his description of many new birds, subsequently incorporated in the Linnaean System. He had, says Swainson, the simplicity and piety of Izaac Walton, and may be looked upon as one of our greatest worthies. He retired about 1764 to Plaistow, died July 23, 1773" (Mullens and Swann p.194). "Through the influence of Sir Hans Sloane, [Edwards] was chosen Librarian to the Royal College of Physicians . Almost immediately after he was appointed . Edwards commenced the preparation of a series of coloured drawings of animals and birds, used later to illustrate [the present work]; for these he was awarded the Gold Medal of the Royal Society and subsequently elected a Fellow" (Lisney p.127). The work was quite successful and went through a number of transformations whilst under Edwards' control, including the issuing of a French text edition. Shortly after he retired in 1769 he sold "to Mr. James Robson, Bookseller . all the remaining copies of my Natural History . coloured under my immediate inspection, together with all my copper-plates, letter-press, and every article in my possession relative to it . and that my labours may be handed down to posterity with integrity, truth, and exactness, I have delivered into his hands a complete set of plates, highly coloured by myself, as a standard to those Artists who may be employed in colouring them for the future" (George Edwards, declaration quoted in Robson's Some Memoirs? of George Edwards , dated May Ist, 1769). This set is beautifully bound by John Wright of London. Flourishing between 1830 and 1860, Wright was among the most fashionable of London binders in this important period. Ramsden refers to Wright as "a binder of the highest order" (Ramsden, London Book Binders, p.154).

"Translated by an American Gentleman," who happens to be Washington Irving, and this happens to be his first book. His translation was in collaboration with his brother, Peter, and George Caines. BAL 10096: Setting A of the text for Volume I; State B of Volume II. Illustrated with a large (26-1/2" x 17-3/4") folded map in the first volume which has two small tape repairs but is otherwise clean and sound. BAL calls for the books to be 8-3/8" scant x 5"; the first two volumes are slightly larger: 8-1/2" x 5-1/8." The third volume, oddly, is 4-7/8" x 8-1/4" and lacks the table of contents usually bound at the end as well as the advertisements (pages 289-296). Bindings strong with only mild dings and wear; contents fairly clean throughout. Old indecipherable ink signature on title pages of first two volumes with the 19th century printed bookplate on the front pastedowns of all three volumes of Dr. Alfred Creigh, likely the historian.

Rare. First Edition. Goedeke VI, 73, 12. A collection of German folk poems and songs, Des Knaben Wunderhorn ('The Youth's Magic Horn') is considered one of the most important publications of German Romanticism. Des Knaben Wunderhorn "established its editors, the poet Clemens Brentano and the antiquarian Achim von Arnim, as leaders of the Romantic movement by reviving enthusiasm for the Volkslied ("folk song," or "peasant song") tradition in German lyric poetry. Reputedly genuine folk songs dating from the Middle Ages, many of the poems were, in fact, either anonymously composed by such 17th-century poets as Simon Dach and Hans Jacob Grimmelshausen or rewritten by Brentano and Arnim to improve what Arnim called "authentically historical discords." Attacked by philologists for historical inaccuracies but praised by J.W. von Goethe, to whom it was dedicated, Des Knaben Wunderhorn preserves many of the melodic, spontaneous phrases and metres of old German folk songs." Encyclopedia Britannica online Verses in the anthology were set as lieder by German composers including Weber, Loewe, Mendelssohn, Schumann, Brahms, Zemlinsky, Schoenberg, and Webern, both in the 19th century and beyond. Das Knaben Wunderhorn served as special inspiration for Mahler, who set its poems to music throughout his career. "The text of the first of his four Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen, begun in 1884, is based on the Wunderhorn poem Wenn mein Schatz. Between 1887 and 1901, he wrote two dozen settings of Wunderhorn texts, several of which were incorporated into (or composed as movements for) his Second, Third and Fourth symphonies. In 1899, he published a collection of a dozen Wunderhorn settings that has since become known, slightly confusingly, simply as "Songs from 'Des Knaben Wunderhorn.'" Wikipedia

There are separate sections on the origins and privileges of the nobility and of @fidalgos and @cavalleiros. Innocêncio noted that although the laws had been changed by his time, he still considered this an interesting and useful book.@Provenance: Armorial bookplate ("Condes do Bomfim" appears beneath the arms); see Avelar Duarte, @Ex-libris portugueses heráldicos p. 275 (nº 770). The first Conde, José Lucio Travassos Valdez (1787-1862), served in the Peninsular Wars and was in charge of putting down both the rebellion under the Conde de Amarante in 1823 and the Miguelist insurrection in Tras-os-Montes a few years later. He was governor of Madeira and served with Costa Cabral and Rodrigo da Fonseca on the Conselho. When the Maria da Fonte movement broke out he was named commander of the government forces in the south, but having been captured in late 1846 by the Duque de Saldanha, was deported along with his two eldest sons to Angola for the duration of the war. Travassos Valdez's oldest son, José Bento Travassos Valdez, succeeded to the title. The third Conde, José Lucio Travassos Valdez (1841-1926) had been born in Luanda.---- Innocêncio V, 324; XVI, 71: calling for xii, 345 pp. and 3 pp. errata; this copy has 4 pp. errata, the first with a "Protestação" occupying the upper half.

        An important relic from the pinnacle of British sea power! Two fragments from the flag that flew above the HMS Victory at Trafalgar, torn to shreds by Nelson's sailors, who draped it over his coffin at St. Paul's Cathedral

      London, England, 1806 A pair of fabric swatches, .25" x .5" each, removed from the ensign flag that flew above HMS Victory during Nelson's victory at Trafalgar on October 21, 1805, housed in a .5" x .5" locket suspended from a fabric rope chain opposite a tiny portrait of Nelson. Expected wear, some abrasions to the bottom and sides of the locket. At the apex of his career, Horatio Nelson was the cream of the British naval establishment when he engaged the Franco-Spanish fleet off Cadiz. Nelson pitted his numerically inferior fleet of 27 ships of the line against his opponent's 33 in a most unorthodox maneuver sailing his ships perpendicularly in two columns into his foe's line. The result was a resounding victory and confirmed Great Britain's status as the greatest naval power on Earth - a position that was not seriously challenged for over a century. Yet the victory was bittersweet. Nelson, who refused to remove his elaborate uniform and medals during the action in order to appear less conspic

        Bird of Paradise] La Pie de paradis, vue par devent, No. 20. [Arfak Astrapia]

      1806 - Colour-printed engraving with hand-colouring. Excellent condition. Barraband's image effortlessly captures the exotic beauty of one of the most spectacular of all Birds of Paradise. The technical brilliance of the colour-printing used in the production of this print ably captures the precision and beauty of Barraband's watercolour and gouache originals. Jacques Barraband was the finest ornithological artist of his time. The son of a weaver at the Aubusson Factory, he is first mentioned as a pupil of Joseph Malaine (1745-1809), the eminent flower painter, and is known to have worked for both the Gobelin Factory and the porcelain factory of Sèvres. His most important work was undoubtedly the 300 or so drawings that he produced for François Levaillant's three great ornithological monographs, the most spectacular of which was the Histoire naturelle des oiseaux de paradis et des rolliers. (Paris, [1801]-06). The Astrapia is a Bird of Paradise that inhabits the Vogelkop Peninsula of West Papua, Indonesia. Cf. Anker 304; cf. Brunet III.1033; cf.Fine Bird Books (1990), p.118; cf. Nissen IVB 559; cf. Ronsil, p. 298; cf. Wood, p. 434; cf. Zimmer, p. 393.

        A Catalogue of the Royal and Noble Authors of England , Scotland, and Ireland; with Lists of their Works

      London: John Scott, 1806. Five volumes, octavo; with 149 engraved portrait plates; an excellent set in a fine contemporary binding of dark green straight grain morocco, ornately gilt, spines heavily gilt with wide raised bands, gilt dentelles on crimson endpapers, gilt edges; armorial bookplates. A very attractive set of this major literary work by Walpole: although his literary reputation rests principally upon his voluminous correspondence, he also produced a number of substantial books, including this with its useful collection of biographical accounts and engraved portraits. As a carefully researched and honest assessment of the literary contributions of a significant number of lesser-known writers (figures whose rank in society was generally greater than their reputations and abilities as authors), the work is of particular value. The set offered here is a very appealing example of a highly decorated binding from the early 19th century, obviously bound in such a way as to suggest a tome of considerable importance.

        A Voyage to the Eastern Part of Terra Firma, or the Spanish Main , in South America, During the Years 1801, 1802, 1803, and 1804

      New York: I. Riley and Co, 1806. Three volumes, octavo, large folding map with closed tear at the fold, with light browning and foxing typical of American books of the era, but here unusually moderate; a very good set in attractive contemporary marbled sheep (scuffed, joints rubbed) original green morocco labels a little chipped. This scarce New York publication is the first edition in English of this 'important account of Venezuela giving a description of the country and people and also accounts of growth and production of cocoa, indigo, sugar, cotton, coffee, and tobacco' (Hill). From 1801 to 1804 François Depons lived in Venezuela, where he worked as a political and diplomatic correspondent of the French government. His account, which he began in Caracas and completed in France, is of great historical importance, providing the first modern vision of Hispanic America. It describes the history, conquest, topography, political and commercial life, customs and manners of the Spanish and Indians, and finance, in the various provinces in the Caribbean under control of the Captain-General of Caracas including the provinces of Venezuela, Maracaibo, Spanish Guiana, Cumana and the Isle of Margaretta. The account was first published in Paris in 1806. This translation of the same year, which was attributed to "a gentleman" was, in fact, Washington Irving's first published work, which he completed in collaboration with his brother Peter, and George Caines. A London edition followed in 1807.
