        [Plums] Red Magnum Bonum, Blue Perdrigon Plum, Le Royal Plum, Whaite Magnum Bonum

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1807. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In good condition. A fine image from Brookshaw's masterpiece: 'Pomona Britannica; or, A Collection of the Most Esteemed Fruits'. George Brookshaw's 'Pomona Britannica' is the finest work on fruit and flowers ever produced. Its breathtaking images display a level of technical virtuosity and beauty that distinguish this magnificent work as a true work of art. As a retired cabinetmaker, Brookshaw produced his seminal botanical study late in his career, at first publishing it in parts and then as a complete edition in 1812. The fact that this outstanding work took ten years to complete is evident in the quality of its images and the care with which Brookshaw executed each individual picture. 'Pomona Britannica' was produced as a visual record of the best available varieties of fruit in an attempt to encourage gardeners to experiment with growing fruit, and illustrates examples found in the Royal gardens at Hampton Court, Kensington Gardens, and the private gardens of the Prince of Wales in Blackheath. 'Pomona Britannica' differs from other botanical works in its dark aquatinted backgrounds and its stylized compositions. By using aquatint to create a contrasting background, Brookshaw manages to produce a truly dramatic effect. His use of stylized composition distinguishes his pictures from the dry scientific illustrations found in other botanical studies and creates an exceptionally beautiful visual experience. 'Pomona Britannica' is not only a didactic study, it is a masterpiece of illustration in which every picture is a testament to the artist's talent and ingenuity. Cf. Dunthorne 50; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p.81; cf. Nissen BBI 244; cf. Sandra Raphael Oak Spring Pomona 40a.

        History of the Viceroyalty of Buenos Ayres; Containing the Most Accurate Details Relative to the Topography, History, Commerce, Population, Government, &c., &c., Of That Valuable Colony

      Printed for H.D. Symonds, London 1807 - Half dark green calf and dark grey pebbled cloth, marbled endpapers, all edges marbled, pp. [iv], 576; 7 plates: 2 folding maps, 1 plan, 2 black & white plates, 2 hand-coloured plates. A touch of offsetting around the plates and occasionally within the text, top outer corner (5 cm x 1 cm) of title-page snipped away (probably the removal of a name), a number written in blue pencil to title-page, otherwise a very good plus copy. "Wilcocke, son of an English minister, eventually emigrated to Canada, where he spent most of the rest of his life. He was a controversial figure. He had to flee Canada for the United States, from which he was forcibly abducted by agents of the Northwest Company, who returned him to Canada, where he was imprisoned. U.S. indignation over his kidnapping eventually resulted in his release. One of his most notable achievements was the founding of the newspaper entitled The Scribbler, which he initiated while still in prison in Montreal. Unfortunately, the increasingly vitriolic tone of the paper landed him in hot water again, and once more he fled to the United States. He was also a translator from Dutch and German, a polemicist, a poet, and a dramatist. Ironically, the year he died, he published a play entitled The Triumph of Intrigue." See Frances G. Halpenny, Dictionary of Canadian Biography (University of Toronto Press, 1966). This work is considered an early classic text on the area, its politics, society, government, and populace.

        Flora Batava II 1807

      J.C. Sepp, Amsterdam 1807 - Presque impossible à trouver entier: les planches se vendent séparément. 80 planches finement gravées et coloriées à la main. La Flora Batava est une oeuvre monumentale formant une enquête magnifiquement illustré de toutes les plantes indigènes aux Pays-Bas. Le travail a été lancé en 1800 par Jan Kops, un agronome néerlandais et professeur de botanique à Utrecht. Les 10 premiers volumes constituent tout ce qui a été préparé et publié sous sa supervision. Lorsque terminé à la fin de 1934, Jan Willem Lütjeharms était le rédacteur en chef pour le volume 28 (volume final), dans lequel il conclut que la publication a pris plus longtemps que tout autre travail comparable. La période de publication reflète le changement dans la technique des illustrations. Initialement gravures sur cuivre ont été utilisés, suivis par lithographies, toutes coloriées à la main. A partir du volume 25 l'impression en couleurs a été progressivement introduite. Aussi plusieurs artistes ont participé, mais les plaques ne sont pas signés, ni beaucoup d'informations sont données à leur sujet. La plupart des plaques dans les 3 premiers volumes ont été illustrés par Georg Johann Jacob van Os. Il est né en 1782 à La Haye et s'installe à Paris en 1826, où il a travaillé pour l'usine de porcelaine de Sèvres et a été un peintre de fleurs et des fruits, natures mortes, etc Chaque planche est accompagnée d'un texte en néerlandais et en français. Le premier éditeur, JC Sepp en Zoon, était réputé pour ses livres avec planches scientifique coloriées à la main. Le travail a été publié en versions in-8 ° et 4 °.

Jupiter and Commodore of the E.I. Fleet. This Chart of a new Passage tho' which he conducted the Fleet in August 1807

      1807 - Manuscript chart of the track of H.M.S. Jupiter for the year 1807 Manuscript chart, with the tracks of HC Surrey, and HMS Jupiters convoy of 11 East Indiamen, naval ledger to verso, minor worming. The chart depicts the track of H.M.S. Jupiter passing Madagascar in the year 1807. As the chart states:'The track of His Majesty's Ship Jupiter Commodore Baker in 1807 having under his Convoy eleven Indiamen who being prevented going to the north by constant Northerly Winds on getting the SE Trade carried the Fleet thro' this passage without meeting any Island or Shaol'As is stated above she was acting as escort for eleven East Indiamen. The continuing war with France had left many of the convoys to India, the East Indies, and China vulnerable to attack by French ships. As a reaction to this threat the British began to sail in convoy and, as here, with a military escort. H.M.S. Jupiter was a 50 gun fourth rate ship-of-the-line launched in 1778. She was wrecked on the 10th December 1808 - just three months after her return from the East - when she struck a sunken rock in Vigo Bay.The chart also bears the track of the East Indiaman Surrey dated 1805.

The very rare first edition of Hegel's first major work, "Phenomenology of Spirit", in which he gave the first systematic account of his own philosophy. The Phenomenology of Spirit can be read as the itinerary of human reason. It traces the development of the categories of reason from the basic categories of sense perception to the manifestations of absolute spirit as religion, art, and philosophy. As the historical coming into being of reason coincides with the genesis of its self-awareness, the Phenomenology of Spirit also offers a justification of the human condition. The importance of Hegel's work for the development of modern thought cannot be overestimated. The dialectical structures which keep in place Hegel's thought shall determine the trajectory of Marx and - through the lectures of Alexandre Kojève - the course of modern French philosophy

The result was, according to the Cambridge History of English Literature, "the first book which, appealing to a general audience and to a rising generation, made Shakespeare a familiar and popular author .

"WE HAVE ENCOURAGED OUR MEN TO KEEP JOURNALS, AND SEVEN OF THEM DO SO, TO WHOM IN THIS RESPECT WE GIVE EVERY ASSISTANCE IN OUR POWER" (Lewis, letter to Jefferson 7 April 1805). First edition. The first full published account of the Corps of Discovery by a member of the expedition, Patrick Gass, who "became one of the best-known members of the expedition for several reasons: his key role as sergeant brought his name up frequently in the journals of Lewis and Clark; his account was the first to be published; he was the first to have a biography written about him; and finally, he outlived the other members of the Corps of Discovery by decades" (Wagner-Camp-Becker 6:1). "Although [Gass's Journal] lacked the insight, reflection, and depth of geographic, ethnographic, diplomatic, and scientific observations penned by Lewis and Clark, it and Jefferson's Message from the President were the only accounts available for seven years to describe the expedition's adventures" (Beckham, p. 89). "Sergeant Patrick Gass outlived every person who served on the Lewis and Clark expedition whose fate is known. Having lived so long, Gass is one of the best known of the expedition's enlisted men and has had more written about him than any other man in the Corps of Discovery, except for the two captains" (DANB).

        L'Art de fabriquer le fer, de fondre et de forger des pièces d'artillerie.

      Delalain, Paris 1807 - 4to (256x200 mm), xxxvii, (3) 654, (2) pp., marbled endpapers, half title, title with small vignette, 13 engraved folding plates. Contemporary full calf with morocco label and gilt-tooled spine (boards, hinges and extremities rubbed), interior bright and virtually unfoxed. A fine and copy of an extraordinarily rare work, important in the history of metallurgy and iron mineralogy. ---- Exeedingly rare second edition, much rarer than the first edition (only one copy listed in Worldcat: Ecole des Mines, Paris). In 1775 Pierre Grignon published a book on various aspects of iron mineralogy and metallurgy which is of considerable importance to the history of metallurgy and crystallography. Grignon was occupied in the commerical operation of a blast furnace and forge plant and his science stemmed from observations on a much larger scale than those of his laboratry contemporaries. He had the opportunity to see large crystals in shrinkage heads of large castings. The first memoir of structural interest « Mémoire sur les métamorphoses du fer » had been read before the French Academy in 1761, but was not published until 1775. Here, he provides a model of crystal structure which is qualitatively the same as that used by Romé de l'Isle in 1772, by Tobern Bergman in 1773, and particularly by the great Haüy in 1784, and it is not improbable that Grignon's ideas, public but unpublished, provided the stimulus for the mathematical approach of these more famous crystallographers. Although the possibility of solid solutions as a mixed aggregate is implicit in the ideas of many of the corpuscular philosophers, it is Grignon who first describes a crystallographic model of a mixed crystal (Smith, History of Metallography, pp. 132-136). The 1807 edition is an exact reprint of the first edition with identical page numbering. ---- Seconde Edition, extrement rare (un seul exemplaire répertorié dans WorldCat à Ecole des Mines, Paris). Pierre-Clément Grignon (1723 -1784), savant métallurgiste, maitre de forge, correspondant de l'Académie Royale des Sciences, dirigeat les forges de Bayard près de Saint-Dizier. Ami de Buffon, il se livra à divers expériences sur le fer et s'efforça de trouver une méthode pour fondre une meilleure qualité de ce minerai. La fonte des canons représentant une activité de la forge de Bayard, Grignon expérimenta pour leur fabrication une nouvelle matière, la régule de fer ; il participa activement à la rédaction de la section Forges ou l'Art du fer de l'Encyclopédie. Il réuni l'ensemble de ses travaux dans cet ouvrage orné de 13 planches gravées dépliantes. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

John Lugar (1772/3-1855), architect, was the son of a Colchester carpenter. He established himself in London ca. 1799, and exhibited at the Royal Academy from that date on; in due course he developed a very widespread practice as a country-house architect, which extended to Scotland and Wales as well as throughout much of England. His first book of designs, which helped bring his name to public attention, was his 1805 Architectural sketches for cottages, rural dwelling, and villas. Lugar was a practitioner of the Picturesque after the manner of John Nash and Humphry Repton, working in a wide variety of architectural styles including the 'Grecian', the Tudor Gothic, and that of the cottage ornée as well as the castellated. He also served as county surveyor for Essex from 1812 to 1816, and became a freeman of Colchester in 1812. (Thanks for information to Mr. John Dury, Essex). 2000 gr. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Aphorisms of Sir Philip Sidney; With Remarks by Miss [Jane] Porter, (Author of Thaddeus of Warsaw).

      London: Printed by C. Stower for Longman Hurst Rees and Orme. 1807 - FIRST EDITION. 2 volumes. 12mo, 158 x 92 mms., pp. [iv], xv [xvi blank], 222 [223 - 224 adverts]; vi [sic for viii], 225 [226 adverts], including half-title in each volume, engraved portrait of Sidney as frontispiece in volume 1, engraved image of "The Princess of Arcadia" as frontispiece to volume 2 (both by Freeman after R. K. Porter, the author's brother), contemporary tree calf, gilt spines, red leather labels; upper front joint volume 1 slightly cracked, otherwise a fine set with the contempoary autograph "Mariana Wainman" on the top margin of the title-page in each volume. a Jane Porter (1776 - 1850) was indeed best known as the author of two very popular novels, Thaddeus of Warsaw and he Scottish Chiefs, neither of which seem to appeal to many 21st century readers. In her entry on Jane Porter in ODNB, Dorothy McMillan notes, "Porter's minor literary productions confirm her somewhat inflated sense of herself as a woman of letters." Her appearance was frequently commented on: "There is Haydon's celebrated story of Lord Abercorn, who, having invited the Porter sisters and paid their travel, sneaked a secret look at his guests, pronounced them frights, and left the house until they had gone. Mostly, however, Jane Porter was found handsome: dark and stately, she was dubbed 'Il Penseroso' by S. C. Hall, as opposed to Anna Maria's fair and lively 'L'Allegro'. Miss Mitford found Porter the only literary lady not 'fit for a scarecrow' (L'Estrange, 2.152), but Lady Morgan found her ill-dressed, 'lackadaisical' with the 'air of a regular Melpomene' (Owenson, Memoirs, 2.396). Maginn, however, remarks that even in her later years she had a 'long and handsome face' (Maginn, 404)." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Udfald mod de Engelske i Classens Have, under Kiöbenhavns Beleiring, d. 31. August 1807.

      . Akvatinte udfört af G.L. Lahde efter forlaeg af C.W. Eckersberg. 1807. 32 x 46 cm. Empireramme i trae med forgyldte dekorationer. Enkelte pletter i papiret. * Tidlig om morgenen den 31. august rykkede 2200 mand under oberst Bechs kommando ud fra Kastellet mod Classens Have som la mellem Classensgade, Österbrogade, Rosenvaengets Alle og stranden ca. 1 km nord for det davaerende Köbenhavns Öster Port. Formalet var at afbraende bygninger og omkappe traeer, og derfor deltog 50 tömmermaend fra Holmen ogsa. Udfaldet blev understöttet med 3 kanonbade fra sösiden. Det var under dette udfald, at generalmajor Peymann blev saret af en flintekugle i det venstre lar. Han naegtede dog at afgive sin kommando, men i praksis overtog Bielefeldt mere og mere kommandoen i de fölgende dage, imens Bille fortsat var naestkommanderende; der var iövrigt ingen taktisk arsag til at Köbenhavns överstkommanderende deltog i dette udfald.<br>Eckersberg har fastholdt udfaldet med sin skitse, som efterfölgende blev stukket af G.L. Lahde. Til venstre kan man se en af tömmermaendene i gang med at faelde et trae, foran ligger döde eller sarede soldater, imens krudtrögen bölger i baggrunden.<br>Bille skrev om udfaldet: "Entreprisen lykkedes for en del da bygningerne blev afbraendte, og flere traeer omkappede. Hos os (= i söforsvaret) mistede vi 1 död og havde 2 blesserede". En noget behersket beskrivelse i betragtning af, at dette udfald bade dengang, i historielitteraturen senere og i dag pa (andre) hjemmesider omtales som et vaesentligt og vellykket udfald.<br> <br><br>Og i övrigt var et udfald den 20. august mod Svanemöllen en meget större operation. Her deltog i alt 3.800 mand, som i en knibtangsmanövre skulle sikre omradet helt op til Svanemöllen og samtidig ödelaegge de engelske batteristillinger. Udfaldet lykkedes imidlertid ikke. Dels fordi de engelske styrker var vores overlegne, dels fordi oberstlöjtnant Voight, som havde kommandoen, glemte at signalere til de kanonbade som skulle understötte udfaldet (se Kriegers rapport fra den 20.), hvilket han blev straffet for i den efterfölgende krigsretssag. Men det aendrer jo ikke pa at udfaldet var strategisk rigtigt: engelske tropper skulle forhindres i at komme for taet pa Köbenhavn, og engelsk artilleri skulle ödelaegges, sa det ikke hindrede kanonbadene i at angribe fjendens landsaetningsfartöjer.<br><br>Derimod var udfaldet mod Classens Have den 31. august helt uden strategisk betydning. Englaenderne havde pa dette tidspunkt faerdiggjort deres batteristillinger, som la uden for söerne - altsa meget laengere vaek fra byen end Classens Have. Udfaldet kunne pa ingen made genere fjenden - de döde og sarede soldater pa Eckersberg skitse er formentlig danske, da de engelske styrker ikke opholdt sig i Classens have. Omradet var uden strategisk betydning for dem.<br><br>Det kunne maske haevdes, at denne karakteristik af udfaldet den 31. skyldes historikerens bagklogskab. Men dels var det nyttelöst at foretage et udfald, som kun havde Classens Have som mal, nar fjendens hele strategi byggede pa et artilleriangreb. Dels er kommandör Billes beskrivelse ganske tydelig: "Entreprisen lykkedes for en del" - og det er ikke nok til at udfaldet kan karakteriseres som et vaesentligt og vellykket udfald.<br><br>Men udfaldet i Classens Have er blevet kendt, fordi det lykkedes at sikre omradet, og fordi Köbenhavns kommandant blev saret. I övrigt var det jo unaegtelig lidt svaert at tale haedrende om udfaldet den 20., nar det ikke lykkedes, og den ansvarlige officer blev tiltalt for sködelöshed!.

Around the central panel are nine compartments marked respectively 2, 5, 11, 6, 10, 8, 9, 3, 4. The rules are at the top of the sheet. The game is played either with a pair of dice or with a totum marked on its 12 sides 1-12: whoever throws the first must put down as many counters as the number thrown and on the number they must be placed - until someone throws "twelve", who clears the board" (Whitehouse) Stephen Sondheim, who as a games collector owns a copy, commented famously and laconically: "It taught kids to be anti-semitic".

        THE KENTUCKY REVIVAL, OR, A SHORT HISTORY OF THE LATE EXTRAORDINARY OUT-POURING OF THE SPIRIT OF GOD, IN THE WESTERN STATES OF AMERICA...WITH A BRIEF ACCOUNT OF THE ENTRANCE AND PROGRESS OF WHAT THE WORLD CALL SHAKERISM, AMONG THE SUBJECTS OF THE LATE REVIVAL IN OHIO AND KENTUCKY

      Cincinnati: From the press of John W. Browne, 1807.. 119,[1]pp. [bound with:] OBSERVATIONS ON CHURCH GOVERNMENT...TO WHICH IS ADDED, THE LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF THAT REVEREND BODY.... Cincinnati: From the press of John W. Browne, 1807. 23pp. 12mo. Original floral- patterned paper over a calf backstrip. Most of the spine paper perished, boards stained and worn. Titlepage stained, carrying through in lesser fashion to the following eight leaves. Bottom inch of titlepage torn away, not affecting the imprint or any text. Small paper flaw in the leaf containing pp.87-88, costing a few letters but not affecting the sense of the text. Uniform tanning, a few signatures loosening. On the whole, still an attractive copy, in original condition. In a brown half morocco and cloth clamshell box, spine gilt. A major rarity of American religious texts, this is the first edition of the first full- length book published by the Shakers. It is of extreme importance as an eyewitness account of the rise of the Shaker movement in the West, as well as a source of Shaker doctrine. MacLean calls McNemar the "father of Shaker literature," and Bestor calls this work "the basic source on Shaker expansion to the West." McNemar was originally a Presbyterian, but later converted to Shakerism and worked hard to establish that faith on the American frontier. "This is a first-hand account by a leader of the Kentucky Revival, one of the first western Shaker converts, which has been quoted extensively by later authors. McNemar describes frontier revivals, the Presbyterian schism, beginnings of Shakerism in the West, and early Shaker relations with the Indians" - Richmond. McNemar is also the author of the second tract included here, OBSERVATIONS ON CHURCH GOVERNMENT..., but is only identified on the titlepage as the "Presbyter of Springfield." Springfield was a small community located eleven miles north of Cincinnati. It is a separate work from THE KENTUCKY REVIVAL..., with its own titlepage, and separate pagination and signatures. The text explains the tenets of the Shaker faith. Thomson calls THE KENTUCKY REVIVAL... "very scarce. This was one of the earliest books printed in Cincinnati." It is very rare on the market indeed. Streeter was only able to acquire an 1808 Pittsfield reprint, and no copies of this first edition are located in auction records over the past thirty years. Rare and important. AII (OHIO) 64, 70.

        Disertacion sobre dos Zodiacos recien descubiertos en Egipto, leida en junta extraordinaria de la Academia de Religion Catolica el dia 5 de julio de 1802. Traducida de italiano en castellano por Don Luis Testa, presbitero, secretario de la Legacia de Roma.

      Madrid, en la Imprenta Real, 1807. - in-8. (1f.blanc). 3ff. 58pp. 1 planche gravée hors-texte. (1f.blanc). Plein maroquin rouge, dos lisse orné, armoiries royales au centre du plat supérieur, filet doré d'encadrement, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque, petits trous de vers au dos). Première et unique traduction en espagnol de cette dissertation relative à la découverte de deux zodiaques en Egypte lors de la campagne de Napoléon. Leur datation suscita une vive polémique parmi les astronomes de l'époque (Lalande, Burckhardt, etc.) parce qu'elle semblait remettre en question la chronologie biblique. L'abbé Testa (1746-1825), soutenu par l'archéologue Visconti, devint le chef de file des défenseurs de la Bible et data les zodiaques du IIIe siècle avant J-C. L'ouvrage est illustré d'une planche gravée représentant des chapiteaux des temples de Dendérah et de Henné. Précieux exemplaire aux armes du roi d'Espagne Carlos IV (1788-1808). Palau, 331020.
