"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

This guide to the privileges of the nobility includes such sections as "Das officios mecanicos incompativeis com a nobreza, e destructivos de seus brilhantes privilegios" (pp. 181-9). 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.

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.

Although marked Tome Premier, this was the only volume published. Contains the first adequate description of Tenon's Capsule - a structure that Tenon did not discover but did sufficient descriptive and investigative work to warrant the recognition. "A collection of twenty-five memoirs by a celebrated Parisian anatomist, surgeon, and ophthalmologist [Tenon]. The first eleven essays deal with ophthalmological subjects and include his "Observations anatomiques sur quelques parties de l'oeil et des paupieres" (p. [193]-207) which presents his famous description of the fibrous capsule and the interfascial space of the orbit. Known to anatomists since Galen as the 'tunica adnata,' details of the fascia surrounding the eyeball were first discovered and adequately described by Tenon in this work. His investigations were largely forgotten until the strabismus operation, introduced by Dieffenbach (110) and Bonnet (54) and Dalrymple (90), revived anatomical investigations of the orbit. Tenon's observations and descriptions are eponymously recognized in "Tenon's capsule" and "Tenon's space." It is interesting to note that Tenon was an octogenarian when his major ophthalmological writings were published." (Becker 373) See also Sourcebook of Ophthalmology 2275, Garrison & Morton 5/1490.

Browne, inspired by Bruce's travels, went to Egypt in 1792 hoping to explore the oases in the eastern Sahara and to journey to the source of the White Nile. He reached El Fashur in Darfur and was the first Englishman to explore the temple of Jupiter Ammon at the Oasis of Siwa. Browne was the first European to describe Darfur, which he reached with a Sudanese caravan in 1793. He was imprisoned there by the Sultan of Darfur. In 1796 he reached Egypt again by caravan and eventually returned to England via Syria and Constantinople' (Blackmer 219). Browne gives detailed descriptions of the cities he visits, as well as the history of Cairo and Egypt under the Arabs. He was murdered by Kurdish bandits in 1813 at the age of forty-five. 'His description of Egypt is considered one of the best of the period' (Howgego p.153). - (Age-browned).Ibrahim-Hilmy I, p.91.

        Voyages Pittoresques dans les Quatre Parties du Monde , ou troisième édition de l'encyclopédie des voyages, contenant les costumes des principaux peuples de l'Europe, de l'Asie, de l'Afrique, de l'Amérique, et des Sauvages de la mer du Sud

      Paris: Veuve Hocquart, 1806. Two volumes, small quarto, with six folding maps coloured in outline and a splendid series of 160 handcoloured aquatint costume plates (including frontispieces to each of the four sections); a fine uncut copy with generous margins in contemporary half crimson morocco and glazed boards. Peoples of the world and their costumes. A fine set of this colourful work on peoples of the world and their costumes. The wonderful series of 160 coloured plates includes nine plates depicting peoples of the Pacific islands and Kamchatka derived from the published voyage accounts of James Cook. The coloured plates are by Lachaussée and Mixelle after drawings by Grasset de Saint-Sauveur; the four frontispieces feature idealised maidens representing Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas. Most of the vibrantly handcoloured aquatint plates depict two figures, male and female, dressed in the native costume of their lands. Of special interest are the plates of Pacific peoples, including Tahiti, Hawaii, Palau, New Zealand, Tanna and the Marquesas (including the island of Saint-Christine). The Kamchatka plate also derives from Cook's third voyage account. Bernard Smith discusses the importance of Saint-Sauveur's costume studies in disseminating impressions of exotic lands, especially the Pacific islands: 'The engravings published in Cook's Voyages provided new visual information about many previously unknown peoples, and greatly enlarged Europe's knowledge of the family of man. Dr. Joppien has shown how important encyclopaedias of costume and 'gallery of man' books were in this process of popular dissemination. But as artists copied the engravings so they altered them still further in the direction of European pre-conceptions, the anthropological and ethnographic intentions of the originals being diverted increasingly to fulfil the demands of taste and the intrinsic needs of decoration.' (European Vision and the South Pacific p. 113). Born in Montreal in 1757, Jacques Grasset de Saint-Sauveur was a French diplomat who served in Egypt amongst other postings. A prolific author and illustrator, he made a long career of studying and depicting the costumes and habits of the peoples of the world, and consistently derived his work from published voyage accounts including those of Cook, La Pérouse, Wilson and other celebrated voyagers. He died in Paris in 1810, his lifetime coinciding with a unprecedented age of discovery in the Pacific. Saint-Sauveur openly acknowledged his use of voyage accounts as they added authenticity to his depictions of exotic peoples. Overall 18 pages of text accompany the Pacific plates in Voyages Pittoresques; these descriptions are rich in references to well-known explorers such as Cook as well as less prominent figures such as Mendana, the Forsters, and Marchand. Published in 1806, Voyages Pittoresques is derived from Saint-Sauveur's successful Encyclopédie des Voyages of 1794. It was issued in parts; Forbes describes the copy held by the Turnbull Library with the original wrappers for one such separately sold part bound in (and priced at 3 francs), while the six maps were likewise issued discretely in printed wrappers. This is a particularly attractive and well-preserved example of this colourful and picturesque work, in an excellent French binding of the period.
