      Paris: L'Imprimerie Imperiale, 1807. Two quarto volumes plus folio atlas, bound in one volume, consisting of the following: 1) Voyage de Decouvertes...Historique. Two volumes. Engraved portrait in volume two. Three folding tables. 2) Partie Historique Atlas. Two parts bound in one. Engraved title for each part. First part contains forty plates including map, five colored coastal profiles, fourteen ethnographic plates (eight colored), eight other views (one of which is colored, and two folding, including Lesueur's view of Sydney), eleven natural history plates (nine colored) and one technical plate. Second part contains fourteen maps (two double-page or folding). Uniformly bound in half antique calf and later 19th-century marbled boards, spines gilt, leather labels. An occasional fox mark in both text volumes. Plates and maps in atlas volume all pristine. Overall a remarkably clean and near fine set, untrimmedThe very rare account of the Baudin-Freycinet expedition, one of the most important early explorations of Australia. The expedition was sent out by the French government in 1800 with orders to complete the cartographic survey of the Australian coast. Commanded by Nicolas Baudin, the expedition left France in 1800 and sailed via Mauritius to the Australian coast in the region of Cape Leeuwin, arriving in May 1801. Peron sailed as naturalist on the expedition and Freycinet as cartographer. The vessels, Geographe and Naturaliste, sailed north from Cape Leeuwin, surveying the coast and making observations on the natural history and inhabitants, until they crossed to Timor. After three months the two ships set out for Tasmania, continued making detailed surveys, and went on to Sydney. The group then undertook a complete survey of the southern coast and an examination of the northern coast before returning to Mauritius where, near the end of 1803, Baudin died. It was a celebrated voyage which brought back to France the most important collection of natural history specimens in the history of the French Museum, as well as a wealth of geographical and other information. ^The narrative of the expedition was begun by Peron, and completed by Freycinet after Peron's death. A tacit agreement between Peron and Freycinet, both of whom disliked Baudin, kept the commander's name mostly absent from the present official account of the expedition. Flinders completed his survey of the Australian coast before Baudin, but his imprisonment by the French in Mauritius for seven years resulted in the French exploration account being published first. Consequently, the Baudin-Freycinet narrative includes the first complete and fully detailed map of the Australian continent. It is justly one of the most famous depictions of Australia ever produced, with virtually the entire southern coast labeled "Terre Napolean," indicating possible French colonial ambitions. The ... Historique Atlas contains a group of beautiful color plates, mostly of natural history specimens, many of which depict what the French saw during their important visit to Tasmania. The navigational text and atlas, which was issued separately a few years later, is rarely found together with the narrative section.A most important Pacific voyage account.

Samarcelli [1903-1988], a Los Angeles based artist. The bookplate in a distinctive art deco style and with a design reminiscent of the work of the artist Rockwell Kent. The bookplate is neatly affixed to the title page and does not obscure any of the lettering of that page. This is an absolutely gorgeous volume. A Very Good Plus copy, Limited Edition

        Herrn Buchhändler Georg Zimmer am Tage seiner Verbindung, den 19. July 1807. Mit Demoiselle Maria Bender gewidmet von seinen Freunden

      Heidelberg, o. Dr., 1807.. 1 w. Bl., 3 Bll., 1 w. Bl. Roter Maroquin d. Zt. mit Rücken- und Deckenfileten. Nicht im KVK, für mich bibliographisch nicht nachweisbar. - Hochinteressante Gelegenheitsschrift zu der Hochzeit des Heidelberger Verlegers Johann Georg Zimmer (1777-1853) mit Marie Charlotte Bender (1788-1875), Tochter des Pfarrers Bender in Rohrbach. Der gelernte Buchhändler Zimmer gründete 1805 mit Jakob Christian Benjamin Mohr die "Akademische Buchhandlung von Mohr & Zimmer", aus der er 1815 ausschied und lutherischer Pfarrer wurde. - Während seiner Tätigkeit als Buchhändler und Verleger stand Zimmer in regem Kontakt mit den Literaten seiner Zeit, besonders zu nennen wären Tieck, Hölderlin, Jean Paul, Savigny, Görres und natürlich Arnim und Brentano, deren "Knaben Wunderhorn" seit 1805/1806 bei Mohr & Zimmer veröffentlicht wurde. Besonders mit Clemens Brentano war in herzlicher Freundschaft verbunden, der sich als Verfasser des neunstrophigen Hochzeitsgedichts durch folgenden Vers anbietet: "Und die Blume will er fragen, Und des Abendhimmels Licht: Doch was Stern und Blume sage, Deutet ihm sein Herz noch nicht." - Der Ausdruck "Stern und Blume" ist natürlich aus dem Schlussvers des berühmten Gedichtes Brentanos "Was reif in diesen Zeilen steht" bekannt, auch taucht er nicht weniger als fünfzehnmal im Gockel-Märchen auf. Trotzdem lässt sich das Gedicht wohl nicht Brentano zuschreiben; erst in einem auf den 13. Juli 1807 datierten Brief Zimmers an Brentano verkündet er diesem die bevorstehende Hochzeit, eine Einladung dazu wurde aber nicht ausgesprochen (dankenswerte Auskunft des Leiters der Brentano-Abteilung im Frankfurter Goethe-Haus / Freies Deutsches Hochstift). - Der Spekulation über die Autorenschaft ist bei einem Druck wie diesem natürlich Tür und Tor geöffnet; die Vorstellung von "Stern und Blume" ist bereits in Hölderlins Hyperion enthalten (vgl. dazu ausführlich: Anke Bennholdt-Thomsen, Untersuchungen zur Sprachauffassung Hölderlins. Bonn, Bouvier 1967). Auch der in dem Eingangsvers gebrauchte Ausdruck "Waller" (für einen umherschweifenden Menschen) deutet stark auf Hölderlin, der zu dieser Zeit von Brentano verehrt wurde und auch mit Zimmer bekannt war. Aber auch das ist eine Sackgasse: Hölderlin bewohnte seit dem Mai 1807 den später so genannten Hölderlinturm, amüsanter weise betreut von Lotte Zimmer (nicht mit Johann Georg verwandt!). - Über Ablauf und Gäste der Hochzeit konnte ich leider nichts in Erfahrung bringen. An der kleinen Schrift muss wohl noch etwas Forschung investiert werden, vielleicht mag aber ein interessantes Ergebnis die Zeit dafür vergelten! - - - Der hübsche Einband ganz leicht fleckig. Ränder der weißen Blätter tls. etwas gebräunt. Schönes Exemplar!

        The Butterfly's Ball And the Grasshopper's Feast

      London: Printed for J. Harris, 1807 Illustrated by William Mulready. First edition. Publisher's pictorial tan paper wrappers, with illustrations of a butterfly and grasshopper to the front wrapper in black, lettered in black. Very good or better, with some light wear to the extremities; spine, rear wrapper and the final two leaves repaired, light rubbing and minor soiling to the wrappers, a few faint spots to the otherwise fresh pages. Overall, a bright and attractive copy of this scarce publication. The Butterfly's Ball is a children's poem comprised of couplets that describe a procession of children, bugs, insects, and small animals en route to the butterfly's ball. The author's best-known verse, this poem was first published in a local miscellany in 1805. Without the author's authorization, it was set to music in 1806 for the amusement of King George III's three daughters, and, in the same year, the text was published in Lady's Monthly Museum and Gentleman's Magazine. Publisher John Harris used the Gentleman's Monthly text for this children's chapbook, which also includes illustrations by William Mulready. Interestingly, the first edition that Roscoe authorized is Harris' second edition, which was published in 1808 with a few minor revisions and with lesser quality illustrations. Notably, this text is an early example of children's literature written to amuse as well as educate its young readers. (Revue, British Children's Poetry in the Romantic Era).. Illus. by Mulready, William. 1st Edition.. Soft Cover. Very Good.

Abbey says "The statement only 3 copies is almost certainly incorrect, but it can be assumed with safety that the number would not have exceeded seven or eight. The subscribers' list is headed by six names of Royalty, including the King and Queen, and it is highly probable that all these received copies in colour. The list includes such names as F. Bartolozzi, W. Beckford, Messrs. Artaria, Mr. Bensley (printer of the book), and others, who would conceivably have been attracted by colour." Our 1807 edition has the same color-printed stipple engravings and the only reference that we could find were in Lowndes: "Reprinted 1807 Roy. 4to large paper with coloured plates." and Brunet: (translated) "This edition, decorated very pretty vignettes and four large prints is very nice; Yet we must admit that the margins of the bottom of the pages are too small for the size of the format. The same vignettes were used in a large quarto edition, which costs 100 francs, and 375 franks with the plates carefully colored. Also added to this quarto edition are the four large prints of the folio edition which cost 25 francs each."In summary, we do not know how many 'colored' copies of the 1807 quarto edition were printed, 'but it can be assumed with safety that the number' was very few. We have only been able to find reference to two other colored copies - both (most likely the same copy sold twice) were sold at Christie's East in New York in 1994 and 1997. Moreover it is unclear from the Christie's descriptions and therefore quite possible that the copy was a 'hand-colored' example - and not one of the very few color-printed examples, as we have here.The Color Printed Stipple and Line Engravings:1.

In London, Thomson became a tutor to the son of Charles Hamilton, Lord Binning, through connections on his mother?'s side of the family. Through David Mallet, by 1724 a published poet, Thomson met the great English poets of the day including Richard Savage, Aaron Hill and Alexander Pope. Thomson?'s mother died on 12 May 1725, around the time of his writing ?'Winter?', the first poem of ?'?'The Seasons?'?'. ?'Winter?' was first published in 1726 by John Millian, with a second edition being released (with revisions, additions and a preface) later the same year. By 1727, Thomson was working on Summer, published in February, and was working at Watt?'s Academy, a school for young gentlemen and a bastion of Newtonian science. In the same year Millian published a poem by Thomson titled ?'A Poem to the Memory of Sir Isaac Newton?' (who had died in March). Leaving Watt?'s academy, Thomson hoped to earn a living through his poetry, helped by his acquiring several wealthy patrons including Thomas Rundle, the countess of Hertford and Charles Talbot, 1st Baron Talbot. He wrote Spring in 1728 and finally Autumn in 1730, when the set of four was published together as The Seasons. During this period he also wrote other poems, such as to the Memory of Sir Isaac Newton, and his first play, The Tragedy of Sophonisba (1729). The latter is best known today for its mention in Samuel Johnson's Lives of the English Poets, where Johnson records that one 'feeble' line of the poem - "O, Sophonisba, Sophonisba, O!" was parodied by the wags of the theatre as, "O, Jemmy Thomson, Jemmy Thomson, O!"James Thomson is one of the sixteen Scottish poets and writers appearing on the Scott Monument on Princes Street in Edinburgh. He appears on the right side of the east face.William Baker was a Bristol bookbinder - an entry for him appears on page 32 of Charles Ramsden's Book Binders of the United Kingdom (Outside London) 1780-1840. Clifton is an inner suburb of Bristol and was most likely the later address of William Baker (& Son).Lowndes, Bibliographer's Manual of English Literature, p. 2671; Brunet, Manuel du Libraire, p. 355 (1797 edition); Cohen, De Ricci, Guide de l'amateur de livres a vignettes du XVIIIe, p.992 (1797 edition);

        Appropriation of Ordnance to the Defence of St. Helena.

      London: Printed by J. Gold Shoe Lane 1807 - First edition, 12mo, iv, [5]-27, [1]pp., original printed wrappers (a little chipped), stitched as issued. This little pamphlet gives a detailed explanation of the defences that Colonel Patton, governor of St. Helena, took to improve the island from attack. The island has shear cliffs on all sides which rise from 400 to 1,000 feet, and are inaccessible to an enemy from the sea. Guns and Canons were placed at the top of these heights and were able to fire directly down on any debarking troops and command that approach by sea. Patton had the advantage of employing the invention of Colonel Shrapnell's exploding 'round case shot' with fuses to explode them over the enemy. These are the shells that soon earned the name shrapnel. "Every piece of ordnance intended for the defence of the interior of St. Helena, whether mounted upon garrison or field carriages, . ought to depress as far as fifty degrees . and the landing places in many situations requires this depression ." Patton devised traversing and horizontal platforms for garrison guns and field ordnance at strategic elevated positions on the cliffs. The perpendicular height of every maritime post from sea level was measured and a table formed for each of the stations, that gave in yards the distances which corresponded to the degrees and minutes of the angle of depression. Of these tables three were completed, one for Ladderhill, one for Rupert's Point, and one for Goat-pound Ridge. The advantages derived from the platforms mostly depended on high situations, and therefore were most exclusively appropriated to St. Helena. **** The notes for this book were written on board his Majesty's ship Sir Edward Hughes, on Patton's homeward journey to England. He hoped that "his suggestions might possibly be found of some advantage to the service of his sovereign . [and] for these purposes he brought models with him of the carriages and platforms which he had adopted at St. Helena."—Preface. Provenance: From the library of Quentin Keynes. Not on COPAC or OCLC.

        [Kitab Qissat al-'asr wuzara wa-ma gara lahum ma'a ibn al-malik Azad Baht]. Historia decem vezirorum et filii regis Azad Bacht insertis undecim aliis narrationibus.

      Göttingen, Heinrich Dieterich, 1807.. 8vo. (8); (1), (1 blank), 114, (2) pp. With swelled rules on the general title-page and a couple other pages. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards; gilt spine title.. First Arabic edition of a series of Persian tales known as Bakhtiyar-namah, a frame story deriving partly from the ancient Sanscrit Panchatantra (known in Arabic as Bidpai) and often added as a supplement to the Arabian nights. It was published in French as Nouveaux contes Arabes, ou Supplement aux Mille et une nuits (Paris 1788), and William Owseley produced an English and Persian edition as The Bakhtiyar Nameh, or, Story of Prince Bakhtiyar and the ten viziers (London 1801). The present edition is based on an Arabic manuscript discovered in Cairo: a Latin translation with annotations followed (in dissertation form) in 1814. It is an elegant little book, well-printed on excellent laid paper with a very slight greenish cast. The Swedish scholar Gustaf Knös (1773-1828) studied in Göttingen and (under Silvestre de Sacy) in Paris. He held the Uppsala chair of oriental languages from 1814 until 1828. He is best known for his large Syriac chrestomathy and his present edition of the Bakhtiyar-namah. Later, following a spiritual crisis, Knös lost all interest in philology and produced no more publications. - The pages of the main text, in Arabic type, progress from right to left like an Arabic book, beginning with an Arabic title-page without imprint, but the 8 pages of the prelims in Latin progress from left to right like a Western book, beginning with a general title-page with imprint, so that the book can be opened from either side. - Binding insignificantly rubbed; some unobtrusive browning throughout. Pencil notes in Arabic to Arabic title. A lovely and elegant first Arabic edition of a famous set of Persian tales. - Chauvin VIII, p. 13 (note). Schnurrer 419. Brill, EI1, II, 603. Kayser III, 371.

      London: Printed for John Joseph Stockdale, 1807. - 60pp. plus one engraved plan. Quarto. Original boards, with letterpress title on front cover and publisher's advertisement on rear cover, rebacked and recornered. Some soiling on cover, inner hinges reinforced. Light offsetting of plan onto titlepage, otherwise clean internally. Very good. In a cloth slipcase. An anonymous account by a field officer, now attributed to John Goulston Price Tucker, of Samuel Auchmuty's capture of Montevideo in 1807. This attack was one of a series of British incursions in South America in the beginning of the 19th century. Auchmuty's original mission was to retake Buenos Aires, which had briefly been under British control. As this was not possible, he chose instead to attack nearby Montevideo, which was strongly fortified, but much smaller than Buenos Aires. The work includes the narrative of the operations and the text of Auchmuty's general order declaring victory. An appendix records Auchmuty's own version of the events, names of British wounded and killed, prizes taken at Montevideo, and related proceedings in Parliament. The engraved plan shows the geographic region, with British troop movements delineated. SABIN 51819. ALBERICH 1248.

        Traite des arbres Fruitiers. Nouvelle edition, augmentee d'un grand nombre d'especes de fruits obtenus des progress de la culture, par A. Poiteau et P. J. F. Turpin]. 2 Bde. (von 6 Bdn.) in 1 Bd. Mit 126 kolor. Farbstich-Tafeln.

      [Paris u Strasbourg F-G Levrault] ()-[ca 1812] 1807 - XXII S. (Vorrede), 161 Bll. (Tafel-Beschreib.). Folio (32 x 46 cm; Gewicht: 7,5 kg.). HLdr. d. zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jh. mit goldgepräg. RTitel und reicher RVergoldung sowie farb. marmor. Schnitt. Great Flower Books, S. 93 ("jewel-like prints", mit Abb.). - Dunthorne Nr. 101, S. 141f ("One of the finest and rarest books on fruit", mit Abb.). - Nissen BBI 551. - Brunet, II 871. - Enthält die Lieferungen des 1. und große Teile des 2. Bandes (von 6 Bdn.) mit der Vorrede, den beschreibenden Text und den in der Platte numerierten Farbstichen Nr. 1-124; das Gesamtwerk umfaßt 422 Tafeln. - Ohne Titelblatt gebunden, es fehlten 2 Farbstiche (Nr. 52: "Épine-Vinette a fruit Blanc" u. 115: "Bon-Chrétien panaché"). Vier Plattennummern doppelt vergeben (27, 88, 92 u. 109, ergibt zus. 8 Farbstiche). - Eine der großartigsten Werke sowie prächtigsten und seltensten Bücher über Obstsorten und Früchte. Der "Traité" ist keine einfache Neuauflage von Duhamel du Monceau's Arbeit aus dem Jahre 1768, sondern sollte als ein völlig unabhängiges Werk ab 1807 in 72 Lieferungen bis 1835 erscheinen. Dieses Buch folgt dem Stil der großen botanischen französischen Werke des späten achtzehnten Jahrhunderts und ist vielleicht das größte Opus, das je über Obst verlegt wurde. Die Farbstiche zeigen in brillantestem Kolorit u.a. Äpfel, Birnen, Mandeln, Nektarinen, Pfirsiche, Kirschen, Pflaumen, Weintrauben, Himbeeren und Erdbeeren. Sie wurden von dem berühmten Farbdrucker Langlois nach Aquarellen von Antoine Poiteau und Pierre-Jean-François Turpin gedruckt. Poiteau und Turpin waren hervorragende Künstler, die im Stil von Pierre-Joseph Redouté arbeiteten, wobei Poiteau Schüler von Redouté war. Die Kupfer wurden in Punktiermanier erstellt, farbig gedruckt und durch Handkolorit abgeschlossen. "Pierre Turpin's watercolor was etched in stripple by Bouquet, and printed in five colors à la poupée at the press of Langlois" [and] "retouched by hand" (siehe Great Flower Books). - Ein Vergleich mit vorliegender Tafel 104 "Abricot-Pêchet" und der bei Great Flower Books ebenso ganzseitig farbig abgebildeten Tafel, zeigt bei unserer Tafel feinere Details des Handkolorits im Zweig der Frucht. - 1846 wurden die Tafeln in der "Pomologie francaise" wieder abgedruckt, dort erhielten sie eine andere Anordnung, wobei "der Name Turpins auf den von ihm herrührenden Tafeln entfernt" wurde (siehe Nissen) und sich Poiteau als alleiniger Autor nannte. - Der schöne goldgepräg. Halbleder-Einband stammt von dem Buchbinder "Louis [Paul August] Meincke Buchbinder in Lübeck" (Blindprägestempel auf dem hint. Vorsatzblatt), der in der zweiten Hälfte es 19. Jh. in der Weberstraße 712 seine Werkstatt hatte (Lüb. Adreß-Buch 1879). - Sehr gut erhaltene, breitrandige Folge mit den ersten 126 Farbkupfern in makelloser Erhaltung, die im "Great Flower Books" als "jewel-like prints" bezeichnet werden, eingebunden im prächtigen Halbledereinband des 19. Jh. - ENGLISH TRANSLATION: Great Flower Books., p. 93 ("jewel-like prints" with a reprint). - Dunthorne Nr. 101, p. 141f ("one of the finest and rarest books on fruit", with a reprint). - Nissen BB1 551. - Brunet, II 871. - It has the instalments of Vol. 1 and the majority of the instalments of Vol. 2 (from 6 vols.) with the preface, the description and the coloured copperplate engravings, all on the plate numbering 1 to 124; the complete work encompasses 422 plates. - Bound without the title page, two copper prints are missing (No. 52: "Épine-Vinette a fruit Blanc" and No. 115: "Bon-Chrétien panaché"). Four plate numbers have twice been allocated (27, 88, 92 and 109, together eight colour plates). - This is one of the most magnificent works as well as one of the most splendid and rarest books on the different kinds of fruit. The "Traité" is not just a new edition by Duhamel du Monceau's work during the year 1768; on the contrary, it was to be published as a completely independent work from 1807 onwards in 72 instalments until 1835. This book followed the sty [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Principle of Population. Or; A view of its past and present effect on Human Happiness.

      London, J. Johnson. 1807 - The Fourth Edition. Two volumes. 8vo. 580pp, 484pp + 58pp Index. Bound in twentieth century full speckled calf, with red and black title labels, gilt centre tool to compartments. Speckled edges. Top edge stained black. Internally clean and bright with occasional very light spotting. "Malthus (1766-1834) was one of the founders of modern economics. His Essay was originally the product of a discussion with his father on the perfectibility of society. Malthus senior was a supporter of the utopian views of Godwin and others, but recognised the force of his son's refutation of these views, and urged him to publish. Thus, the first edition was essentially a fighting tract, but later editions were considerably altered and grew bulkier as Malthus defended his views against a host of critics. The Malthusian theory of population came at the right time to harden the existing feeling against the Poor Laws and Malthus was a leading spirit behind the Poor Law Amendment Act of 1834." PMM.
