        Plan du Port de Veracruz

      1807 1807. Engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 10 x 11". Sheet measures 15.5 x 18.75". This map is an early nautical rendering of the harbor of Veracruz, Mexico, oriented with north to the upper left. It focuses on shoreline geography and depths, particularly around the various islands and sand bars off the coast. In the upper left corner of the map is a profile view of the region's mountains. Below is a French description of the harbor attributed to Humboldt. Below the map is the title and a note addressing the map to Bernardo de Orta, a captain in the Spanish Navy. The map is in very good condition with deluxe margins. Some foxing and discoloration, particularly in the lower margin. Small tear to lower margin not affecting the image. Baron Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) was a Prussian geographer and explorer who traveled extensively in Latin America. His maps of New Spain corroborated existing maps, documents, and reports with astronomical observations and today, exemplify state-of-the-art cartographic knowledge in the early 19th century. This map is a fine example of his work.

"From his beginnings as a Gothic novelist, Maturin was addicted to ultra-complicated plots whose dramatic commotion rivals the tangled tragedies of blood of the Elizabethan playwrights, and Jacobean melodramatists - Marlowe, Tourneur, Webster, and Chapman. The infinitely elaborate trappings of the Elizabethan revenge play seem to serve Maturin as a model for Montorio... To supplement the revenge plot, there is also plenty of monastic and inquisitional atrocity and a shrill style of poetic horror that will later become central in Melmoth the Wanderer." - Tymn (ed), Horror Literature 1-242. "A remarkable novel, superior even to Melmoth the Wanderer in atmosphere and color, though very difficult to follow." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 1133.

        Antiquities of Westminster; The Old Palace; St Stephen's Chapel, (Now the House Of Commons) &c. &c.

      London 1807 - "containing two hundred and forty-six engravings of topographical objects, of which one hundred and twenty-two no longer remain. This work contains copies of manuscripts which throw new and unexpected lights on the ancient history of the arts in England." This copy has tipped in to the front free end paper a note from (presumably) the original owner noting that the unumbered copies of this first edition, which were to be sold at six guineas, had been completely destroyed in a fire which happened at the premises of Mr Bradley in Fleet Street- "the coloured plates all lost, the six years hard labour of Mr and Mrs Smith. The copper plates were saved. But it must be some years before another edition can be published.". A pencil note in the top margin of the 'stone plate' says "this is an engraving on stone by Mr Smith, which he showed me about six months ago in Newman Street." The copper plate version of this follows the lithograph. Binding quarter leather, marbled paper over boards. The plates present match the list of plates at the end. Fourteen of the plates have been coloured (two in monochrome). Condition: Boards rubbed, worn but sound. Some age discolouration here and there inside and grubbiness especially to verso of the plates, but overall a tight, sound, clean copy. Contents: half title, title, dedication, advertisement (two pages, comprising a rehearsal by John Smith of his argument with Mr Hawkins, who had been the intended author of the accompanying text), Preface [i-xv], then 1-272 the text and plates, then list of plates, then list of subscribers (pages 273 227). Weight before packing 2.6kg; overseas buyers, please enquire for shipping options for this large and therefore vulnerable book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Buffon's Natural History. Containing a Theory of the Earth, a General History of the Earth, a General History of Man, of the Brute Creation and of Vegetables, Minerals, &c. &c

      London: H. D. Symonds, 1807. Hardcover. Very good. Georges-Louis Leclerc, Comte de Buffon (1707-1788) was a French naturalist, mathematician, biologist, cosmologist and author. Buffon's views and work influenced the next two generations of naturalists during a critical period in the development of human knowledge and conception of the natural world. Charles Darwin, in a forward to his Origin of Species, stated that "the first author who in modern times has treated it in a scientific spirit was Buffon." It should be remarked that, like many sages before and after him, Buffon was not universally prescient. He argued that the Americas were lacking in large and powerful creatures, and that even the people were less virile than their European counterparts. An affronted Thomas Jefferson arranged to have the carcass of a bull moose sent to Paris for Buffon as proof of the virility of New World quadrupeds (and bipeds as well). Here is a 10 volume matched set of Buffon's ambitiously comprehensive discourse on natural science, with varying publication dates (4 vols published in 1807, 2 published in 1810, 2 published in 1811, and 2 published in 1812). All are bound in the original half leather over marbled boards with leather corners. The set is in very good condition overall considering the age and original bindings. The bindings all show shelf wear, but all of the boards remain firmly attached with square and tight bindings. All of the contents are clean, tight, and complete, including the many hand-colored plates.

      Joseph Johnson, London 1807 - Large Quarto. xxiv, 796, xliii plates, xii, 738pp., xv plates. Rebacked original calf with gilt ruling and gilt lettering on black label of spine. Most significant scientific renderings of this British polymath presented in lectures, delivered at the Royal Institution of Great Britain, on mechanics, hydrodynamics, physics, mathematical elements of natural philosophy, and an extensive catalog of works relating to natural philosophy and the mechanical arts.

        Travels in Scotland, by an unusual route; with a trip to the Orkneys and Hebrides. Containing hints for improvements in agriculture and commerce. With characters and anecdotes. Embellished with views of striking objects, and a map including the Caledonian Canal

      London, St Paul's Church Yard: J Johnson, 1807 Complete copy of this extremely scarce work with 29 engravings and a folding map of Scotland. 2 volumes bound in one in contemporary half leather binding with raised bands, gilt compartments, title label, marbled boards, marbled endpapers, and marbled page edges. Original bookmark present. With title page and frontispiece to Vol I - 323pp; and separate title page and frontispiece to Vol II - pp 324 -622 (although page numbers 619-622 have been repeated in error - so in reality the book should show 626 as the final page), plus index, errata table and directions for the plates. The binding is in very good condition - with bright gilt on the spine and little wear to joints. There is some rubbing to corners and a little scuffing. Internally there is some browning to pages and some plates (which are not tissue guarded) but the copy is generally very clean and sound. There is an interesting note added in ink (hopefully by the book owner) at the page edge of p507 - reflecting that the harsh winter of 1814 had forced rabbits and hares to dig into the snow and eat the bark of trees in his garden at Edmonton and remove soil from around the roots. He feared that his trees would die. The signature is hard to make out but looks like Rob King.

Il testo e' spesso attribuito erroneamente all'artista S.T.Edwards, ma in realta' l'Autore, che non compare nel frontespizio, e' R.W.Dickson, il quale pubblico' nel 1807: "A Complete Dictionary of Practical Gardenig" (2 voll.), sotto lo pseudonimo di Alexander Mac Donald, quest'opera e' arricchita dalle stesse 61 tavv. che compaiono in "The New Flora Britannica", con l'aggiunta di 13 tavv. non colorate.

        Antiquities of Westminster; The Old Palace; St Stephen's Chapel, (Now the House Of Commons) &c. &c

      London, 1807. First Edition. Hardback. Very Good/No Jacket. 2581 Folio. containing two hundred and forty-six engravings of topographical objects, of which one hundred and twenty-two no longer remain. This work contains copies of manuscripts which throw new and unexpected lights on the ancient history of the arts in England." This copy has tipped in to the front free end paper a note from (presumably) the original owner noting that the unumbered copies of this first edition, which were to be sold at six guineas, had been completely destroyed in a fire which happened at the premises of Mr Bradley in Fleet Street- "the coloured plates all lost, the six years hard labour of Mr and Mrs Smith. The copper plates were saved. But it must be some years before another edition can be published.". A pencil note in the top margin of the 'stone plate' says "this is an engraving on stone by Mr Smith, which he showed me about six months ago in Newman Street." The copper plate version of this follows the lithograph. Binding quarter leather, marbled paper over boards. The plates present match the list of plates at the end. Fourteen of the plates have been coloured (two in monochrome). Condition notes: Boards rubbed, worn but sound. Some age discolouration here and there inside and grubbiness especially to verso of the plates, but overall a tight, sound, clean copy. Contents: half title, title, dedication, advertisement (two pages, comprising a rehearsal by John Smith of his argument with Mr Hawkins, who had been the intended author of the accompanying text), Preface [i-xv], then 1-272 the text and plates, then list of plates, then list of subscribers (pages 273 227).

        The Bakerian Lecture, on Some Chemical Agencies of Electricity

      London, 1807 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. 1st Edition. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Journal extract from: Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London for the Year 1806, Vol. 97, Part One, published 1807. Slim 4to, pp. 1-56. Volume title, plus engraved plate at rear, some spotting, recent blue buckram gilt. ---- <br><br> Sparrow 52, PMM 255 (remark) - Davy found that when he passed electrical current through some substances, these substances decomposed, (a process later called electrolysis). Davy must have known of Lavoisier&#39;s suggestion that the alkali earths were s of unknown metals. At first, he tried to separate the metals by electrolyzing aqueous solutions of the alkalis, but this yielded only hydrogen gas. He then tried passing current through molten compounds, and his persistence was rewarded when he was able to separate globules of pure metal by this means. His first successes came in 1807 with the separation of potassium from molten potash and of sodium from common salt. He described potassium as particles which, when thrown into water, "skimmed about excitedly with a hissing sound, and soon burned with a lovely lavender light." Dr. John Davy, Humphry&#39;s brother, said that Humphry "danced around and was delirious with joy" at his discovery. These results were presented in his second Bakerian lecture of November, 1807..
