        [Jamestown, Saint Helena, seen from the sea in 1805].[Place of production unknown, ca. 1815? after an 1806 print]. Oil painting on a thin brass plate (11.5 x 15.5 cm) showing the town of Jamestown on the island Saint Helena in the South Atlantic Ocean, with 2 ships and a smaller sailboat in the bay before the town, the fortress on the promontory to the left, the houses, governor's residence and church in the centre with the valley and mountains behind. In an ebonized wooden frame and gilt inner frame (24 x 27.5 cm).

      An oil painting on brass, showing Jamestown on the island Saint Helena, with its houses, fortress, governor's residence and Church of St James, and with two ships and a boat in the bay before the city. Although the painting is unsigned and undated, it clearly matches the 4 June 1806 print published by Edward Orme in London, which was engraved by John Heaveside Clarke & J.R. Hamble after George Hutchins Bellasis (1788-1822). The interest in Saint Helena rose enormously when Napoleon was imprisoned there in 1815, so that is the most likely time for someone to have copied the 1806 print. Bellasis took a commission in the British army at Bombay, where his father was commander of the forces. Illness forced him to leave Bombay for home in 1804, but his condition worsened underway and he had to disembark at Saint Helena on 4 November 1804 and remain there eight months to recover before returning home. Bellasis was an amateur artist and when he recovered sufficiently, presumably in the new year, he made a series of views of the spectacular island almost 2000 kilometres from the nearest land. The print made from Bellasis's view of Jamestown, published on 4 June 1806, only months after he returned to England, is so close to the present painting that one must have copied the other. It seems most likely that the painting is a direct copy of the print. In very good condition, with only a few minor surface scratches in the varnish. A lovely painting of Saint Helena on brass, following a view made there in 1805.

Barrow accompanied Lord Macartney, as private secretary, on his mission to the Cape of Good Hope in 1797, being promoted to auditor general in 1798. "Macartney at once sent him on a double mission, viz. to reconcile the Kaffirs and Boers, and to obtain more accurate topographical knowledge of the colony, there being then no map which embraced one-tenth of it. In pursuit of these objects he traversed every part of the colony, and visited the several countries of the Kaffirs, Hottentots, and the Bosjesmen, performing 'a journey exceeding one thousand miles on horseback, on foot, and very rarely in a covered wagon, and full half the distance as a pedestrian, and never except for a few nights sleeping under a roof'... He owed his appointment [as second secretary of the Admiralty] mainly to the ability he had shown at the Cape and in his history of the colony, with its unrivalled map" (DNB). Barrow was elected to the Royal Society in 1805, and was one of the founders of the Royal Geographical Society. His accounts "established new standards for travel writing" and through his friendship with John Murray he "secured the publication of a succession of travellers' accounts which generated the great public interest in exploration."

HANDCOLOURED AQUATINT PLATES BY S. DANIELL AND HANDCOLOURED MAPS AND CHARTS ARE PRESENT IN THIS EDITION FOR THE FIRST TIME. ?Sir John Barrow, 1st Baronet, FRS , FRGS , LL.D was an English statesman who, through the interest of Sir George Leonard Staunton, to whose son he taught mathematics, was attached on the first British embassy to China from 1792-94 as comptroller of the household to Lord Macartney. He soon acquired a good knowledge of the Chinese language, on which he subsequently contributed interesting articles to the Quarterly Review; and the account of the embassy published by Sir George Staunton records many of Barrow's valuable contributions to literature and science connected with China. Although Barrow ceased to be officially connected with Chinese affairs after the return of the embassy in 1794, he always took much interest in them, and on critical occasions was frequently consulted by the British government. In 1797 he accompanied Lord Macartney, as private secretary, in his important and delicate mission to settle the government of the newly acquired colony of the Cape of Good Hope. Barrow was entrusted with the task of reconciling the Boers and "Kaffirs" and of reporting on the country in the interior. On his return from his journey, in the course of which he visited all parts of the colony, he was appointed auditor-general of public accounts. He decided to settle in South Africa, married Anne Maria Trüter, and in 1800 bought a house in Cape Town. But the surrender of the colony at the peace of Amiens (1802) upset this plan. His writings on his travels and studies in southern Africa are the subject matter of the book here offered. And it is one of the great early works on South Africa. He returned to England in 1804, was appointed Second Secretary to the Admiralty by Viscount Melville, a post which he held for nearly forty years. He enjoyed the esteem and confidence of all the eleven chief lords who successively presided at the Admiralty board during that period, and more especially of King William IV while lord high admiral, who honoured him with tokens of his personal regard. In his position at the Admiralty, Barrow was a great promoter of Arctic voyages of discovery, including those of John Ross, William Edward Parry, James Clark Ross, and John Franklin. Point Barrow in Alaska is named for him. He is reputed to have been the initial proposer of St Helena as the new place of exile for Napoleon Bonaparte following the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. Barrow was a fellow of the Royal Society, and in 1821 received the degree of LL.D from the University of Edinburgh. A baronetcy was conferred on him by Sir Robert Peel in 1835. He retired from public life in 1845 and devoted himself to writing a history of the modern Arctic voyages of discovery (1846), as well as his autobiography, published in 1847. Besides the numerous articles in the Quarterly Review already mentioned, Barrow published among other works: A Voyage in Cochinchina (1806), Travels in China (1804), Travels into the Interior of South Africa (1801-1804 and 1806, Lives of Lord Macartney (1807), Lord Anson (1839), Lord Howe (1838), The Eventful History of the Mutiny and Piratical Seizure of H.M.S. Bounty: (1831) Its Cause and Consequences, a report about the mutiny on the Bounty.

        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; pleasing contemporary ownership stamp on two leaves at start of each volume. 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 particularly attractive example of this colourful and picturesque work, in an excellent French binding of the period, has the attractive library stamps at start of each volume of Achille Hippolyte Gentil, French senator and for sixteen years president of the Conseil Général.

Book labels to front pastedowns of each volume, specifying the sale of M. Boulton's Library at Christie's, December 1986. Extremities lightly worn, joints a little creased, otherwise a bright and clean set. First edition of this collection of the revolutionary politician and natural philosopher's letters and papers, an excellent association copy from the library of English engineer Matthew Boulton, Franklin's collaborative experimenter and friend. Matthew Boulton is perhaps best known as the business partner of James Watt and as an active member of the Lunar Society of Birmingham, a set of key figures in the Midlands Enlightenment led by Erasmus Darwin. During his time spent in England in the 1750s Franklin travelled to Birmingham where he met Boulton and his circle, and "the two carried out electrical experiments together. Within a few years they were corresponding on the subject of Boulton's experiments on developing a steam engine, which were underway prior to him meeting James Watt" (McLean, p. 34). Both Franklin and Boulton were working on Leyden jar experiments in particular, and when the former required more scientific glassware, Boulton procured it for him. Franklin thanked him in a letter, adding: "If any thing new in Magnetism or Electricity or any other Branch of natural Knowledge, has occurr'd to your fruitful Genius since I last had the Pleasure of seeing you, you will by communicating it, greatly oblige [me]" (22 May 1765). The Complete Works details Franklin's groundbreaking experiments in electricity as well as his thoughts on a wide variety of subjects including astrological phenomena, magnetism, naval navigation techniques, the structure of education, the slave trade, economy, and his account of the American Revolution. Franklin's reputation as the first great American scientist rests on his work on electricity; his accounts of experiments using Leyden jars, lightning rods, and charged clouds are extensively recorded in his papers, many of which were published in this edition for the first time.

        LETTRES DE MADAME DE SÉVIGNÉ, A SA FILLE ET A SES AMIS ; Nouvelle édition, mise dans un meilleur ordre, enrichie d'éclaircissements et de notes historiques ; augmentée de lettres, fragments, notices sur Madame de Sévigné et sur ses amis, éloges et autres morceaux inédits ou peu connus, tant en prose qu'en vers ; par Ph. A. Grouvelle, ancien ministre plénipotentiaire, ex-législateur et correspondant de l'Institut National.

      A Paris, chez Bossange, Masson et Besson, 1806 - 8 forts volumes in-8 (22,3 x 13,7 cm) de (6)-CLXIV-XXXV-334 ; (4)-479 ; (4)-478 ; (4)-494 ; (4)-480 ; (4)-447 ; (4)-527 et (4)-636-(2) pages. 2 portraits hors-texte d'après Chasselat (Madame de Sévigné et Madame de Grignan). Suite de 20 portraits historiques (suite Renouard). Cartonnage plein papier caramel de l'époque, pièce de titre et tomaison de maroquin rouge à long grain et ornée de filets dorés. Ensemble collationné complet du texte et des gravures. Cartonnages d'origine bien conservé avec quelques usures aux extrémités des coiffes et coins, quelques mors fendus (papier uniquement). Non rogné. Intérieur très frais, pratiquement sans aucune rousseurs pour le texte. Quelques pâles rousseurs sur les portraits. Bien complet du fac-similé dépliant. EXEMPLAIRE DU RARE TIRAGE SUR GRAND PAPIER VÉLIN AVEC LES DEUX PORTRAITS AVANT LA LETTRE. Quérard, dans la France littéraire, donne le détail du tirage de cette édition : Papier d'Auvergne (48 francs). Papier d’Angoulême (54 francs). Papier vélin ex. cartonnés à la Bradel (92 francs). Il n'y a pas le nombre d'exemplaires de chacun des papiers, mais les exemplaires sur papier vélin étaient les plus chers et par là même les plus rares (sans doute une centaine d'exemplaires ou moins sur ce papier). Notre exemplaire possède comme il se doit les deux portrait de la mère et la fille en épreuves avant la lettre, ainsi que la suite de portrait publiée séparément par Renouard. Le fac-similé replié est également présent en tête du tome premier et imprimé sur papier bleuté. "Aux Lettres imprimées dans les précédentes éditions, Grouvelle en a ajouté d'autres. Celles de madame de Grignan et du marquis de Sévigné. Celles de Bussy-Rabutin, de Coulanges, de Corbinelli, forment, par les différences de leur style, des contrastes piquants et une agréable variété. L'idée d'avoir classé dans l'ordre de dates où elles furent écrites toutes les Lettres indistinctement, qui jusqu'alors formaient autant de recueils séparés, qu'il y avait de correspondances particulières, est très-heureuse ; elle ôte les lacunes où, pendant la réunion de la mère et de la fille, on les perdait totalement de vue : mais par ce moyen, depuis l'âge de vingt-deux ans jusqu'au moment de sa mort, on suit tous les instants de cette femme intéressante, et le recueil de ses lettres devient presque l'histoire de sa vie. C'est à l'ancien bibliothécaire de Napoléon et du conseil d'État, A.-A-Barbier, que Grouvelle était redevable du plan de son édition ; notre érudit bibliographe avait indiqué ce plan dans le Magasin encyclopédique. Une autre idée non moins heureuse est celle d'avoir fait graver quelques fragments d'une de ces lettres d'après un original qu'à force de soins on est parvenu à se procurer à l'imitation exacte des caractères nous met pour ainsi dire en plus intime connaissance avec l'auteur. Les notes sont beaucoup plus exactes que celles des précédentes éditions ; elles servent de complément à ce que les lettres ne laissent quelquefois qu'entrevoir, et elles lèvent l'anonyme des noms qui n'étaient auparavant indiqués que par des initiales. Une amélioration non moins importante est une table des matières très-étendue." (Quérard). La première édition des lettres de Mme de Sévigné date de 1725 et a été donnée subrepticement en une mince plaquette de 75 pages regroupant seulement quelques lettres pour la plupart incorrectement retranscrites et fragmentaires (31 fragments). Cette première édition rarissime et quasi mythique n’était connue qu’à 2 ou 3 exemplaires à la fin du XIXe siècle, il ne semble pas qu’on en est répertorié d’autres depuis. Les bibliographes considèrent donc comme véritable seconde édition originale, celle que nous proposons ici, l’édition dite de Rouen publiée en 1726 par les soins du fils de Roger de Bussy-Rabutin (cousin indiscret de la Marquise). On a beaucoup tergiversé pour savoir s’il s’agissait du fils aîné (Amé-Nicolas de comte Bussy-Rabutin) ou bien du cadet, futur évêque de Luçon, abbé de Bussy. C [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The fold-out map in excellent, very clean condition with only a very fine sign of a dampstain to the very outer margin. Rare ! And even rarer in this firm condition of the bindings ! William Mariner (17911853) was an Englishman who lived in Tonga from 29 November 1806 to (probably) 8 November 1810. He later published Tonga Islands, an account of his experiences that is now one of the major sources of information on Tonga, before it was significantly influenced by European culture, Christianity or colonisation. As a teenager, Mariner was a ship's clerk aboard the British privateer Port au Prince. In 1806, while it was anchored off the Tongan island of Lifuka, in the Ha'apai island group, Port au Prince was seized by a chief named Finau Ulukalala. Most of the crew were killed during the capture of the ship, but the chief spared Mariner and a few crewmates. Mariner lived in Tonga for four years. After returning to England, Mariner he dictated a detailed account of his experiences, a description of Tongan society and culture, and a grammar and dictionary of the Tongan language. The Port-au-Prince was an English private ship of war, a vessel of 500 tons armed with 24 long nine and twelve pound guns as well as 8 twelve pound carronades on the quarter deck. She carried a "letter of marque" and this document permitted her Captain and crew to become pirates against the enemies of England, primarily France and Spain. In payment for their pirate raids any plunder they seized was to be their own. Commanded by Captain Duck she sailed for the New World on 12 February 1805 having been given a twofold commission by her owner, a Mr. Robert Bent of London. Their primary goal was to attack the Spanish ships of the New World capturing gold and valuables but if she failed in that task her secondary objective was to sail into the Pacific in search of whales to be rendered for their oil. The Atlantic crossing was rough but uneventful and she lay off the coast of Brazil by April and then rounded Cape Horn in July before proceeding north in search of Spanish Galleons laden with treasure. They captured a number of ships but most yielded little in the way of valuables and at times the men began to get disgruntled by capturing what they contemptuously referred to as dung barges. The Port-au-Prince was now also on the lookout for whales as well but, although catching a few, experienced little success in this endeavour. After leaving Hawaii in September under the command of Mr. Brown, she intended to make port at Tahiti but missed the target and instead sailed westward for the Tonga Islands. She arrived in Ha'apai on 9 November 1806, almost two years since departing England and after numerous engagements, leaking badly and having already witnessed the death of her captain. She was laden with the spoils of war and cargo amounting to approx twelve thousand dollars plus a considerable amount of copper plus silver and gold ore. A large quantity of silver candlesticks, chalices, incense pans, crucifixes and images complemented the treasure. She weighed anchor, in seven fathoms water off the North West Point of Lifuka Island, for what was destined to be the last time. A number of chiefs visited the ship on the evening of her arrival and brought with them barbecued hogs, yams and a native of Hawaii who spoke some English informing Captain Brown that the Tongans had only friendly intentions. Finau, the chief of the Ha'apai, apparently took a liking to William Mariner, who reminded Finau of a son who had died of illness. Port-au-Prince also had Hawaiian crew who did not trust the situation and expressed concern to the captain that the Tongans were feigning friendliness while planning attack. Captain Brown chose to ignore the warnings. The next day Tongans began to board the vessel until there were around 300 in different parts of the ship. They invited Captain Brown ashore to see the Island and assured of their friendly motives he agreed. On arrival he was clubbed to death, stripped and left lying in the sand. Simultaneously the main attack commenced on the Port-au-Prince. The sailors were outnumbered and overwhelmed easily. Finau had given instructions that the life of Mariner should be spared if at all possible. All but four of the crew members were clubbed to death, their heads so badly beaten as to be unrecognisable. For the next three days the ship was stripped of her iron, a valuable commodity, and had her guns removed before being burnt to the water line to more readily remove what iron remained. Finau assumed responsibility for Mariner, taking him under his protection. Mariner became known as Toki 'Ukamea (Iron Axe) and spent the next four years living amongst the islanders. He lived mostly in the northern island group of Vava?u. During this period, Mariner witnessed Finau's attempts to unify the islands, using cannon seized from the Port-au-Prince. One long nine still lies on Ha'anno Island. In 1810, Mariner was rescued and returned to England. He related his story to John Martin, who authored the book The Tongan Islands, William Mariner's account. Mariner gave a lively description of Finau Fangupo in particular. In one passage, Mariner quoted Finau's opinion of the western innovation of money:If money were made of iron and could be converted into knives, axes and chisels there would be some sense in placing a value on it but as it is, I see none. If a man has more yams than he wants, let him exchange some of them away for pork. [...] Certainly money is much handier and more convenient but then, as it will not spoil by being kept, people will store it up instead of sharing it out as a chief ought to do, and thus become selfish. [...] I understand now very well what it is that makes the papalangi [white men] so selfish it is this money! There are three major versions of Mariner's account. The original version was first published in 1817 by John Murray II, with the help of Dr. John Martin, who assumed authorship. Later editions appeared in England in 1818 and 1827 and in Germany in 1819 and the United States in 1820. The Vava'u Press of Tonga issued a new edition in 1981 that includes a biographical essay about Mariner, written by Denis Joroyal McCulloch, one of Mariner's great-great grandsons, but leaves out the grammar and dictionary. Two modern editions with modern Tongan spelling and other additions have been published, the first by Boyle Townshend Somerville in 1936 and the second by Paul W. Dale in 1996. (Wikipedia)

        Voyage en Italie et en Sicile, fait en 1801 et 1802, par M. Creuzé de Lesser, Membre du Corps Législatif.

      de l'Imprimerie de P. Didot l'Ainé, A Paris 1806 - In-8 de XII-372 pp., maroquin rouge à grains longs, dos lisse orné de palets feuillages, double encadrement de roulettes bordées de filets simples et doubles (reliure de l'époque signée Bozerian). Edition originale. Préfet de la Charente et de l'Hérault sous l'Empire et la Restauration, le baron Auguste Creuzé de Lesser (1771-1839) est l'auteur d'opéra-comiques anonymes qu'il publie sous le nom d'Auguste, de poèmes heroïques et lyriques, aussi bien que d'une traduction de Schiller, et d'une vie de La Fontaine. Il publie ici sous son nom le Voyage en Italie. Il donne une très vivante relation de son parcours d'Italie jusqu'en Sicile, dont un chapitre consacré à Bodoni que l'auteur connaissait pour avoir vécu quelques temps a Parme. « Creuzé avait publié, à son retour d'Italie et de Sicile, un Voyage ; selon la tournure habituelle de son esprit, il avait, sans respect pour les vieilles admirations classiques, parlé très légerement des monuments de l'Antiquité et des chefs d'?uvre des arts. Il s'était aussi montré dedaigneux pour le caractère italien. On disait que tout cela avait déplu a Napoleon » (Barante cité par Larousse). Très bel exemplaire dans une reliure en maroquin rouge signée Bozérian. Monglond, VII, 242. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        MEMOIRS OF THE LIFE OF LORD NELSON: CONTAINING A PARTICULAR ACCOUNT OF ALL HIS VICTORIES, BY SEA AND LAND...

      Boston: Printed for William Norman, 1806. 46pp. plus frontispiece portrait and folding plate. Contemporary wrappers. Spine mostly perished, lower left corner of front cover torn away. Moderately foxed, some light wear to text. Overall good. In a cloth clamshell box. The frontispiece portrait of Nelson, taken from the EUROPEAN MAGAZINE, is engraved by the printer's brother, [John] Norman, and is rarely found. The large folding plate entitled "Adm'l Lord Nelson's Fleet bearing down to engage the Combined Fleet off Trafalgar Oct'r 21 1805" is bound after page 22, instead of being the frontispiece as called for in the title, and as found in the copy described in Rosenbach's catalogue, THE SEA (Philadelphia, 1938). "This is quite probably the most elusive American imprint relating to Lord Nelson. It amounts to a pirated condensation of Lloyd's biography of the same year...the folding battle plate a superbly crude homegrown copper engraving. NUC lists AAS, Harvard, and Indiana University locations, but with slightly different collation. One hesitates to use the word 'rare,' but this is surely deserving of the designation." - Howland, describing this copy. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 10850. HOWLAND CATALOG 8-81 (1981, this copy).
