He emphasized the importance of studying the modes of occurrence of minerals as well as their properties, but firmly avoided any discussion of their origins as being too speculative...

Some toning to text, light dampstaining to upper corner of rear quarter of text block, interior otherwise clean. * First edition. This enthusiastically anti-British work details the ways Britain has manipulated international trade laws in its favor, and against the interests of Spain. It sketches the history of British politics as it affected the country's foreign entanglements, and lists some of the tricks used by Britain to win over international opinion. Inspired by Adam Smith, Severo discusses a wide variety of trades and industries, including whaling, herring, fishing, the trade in coal and tobacco, and shipbuilding, describing the shipping routes used by British merchant vessels and British trade with India, the Americas (including South America) and the Baltic. Severo analyses the effect of British trade laws, and the enthusiasm with which the British sing (and mean) Rule Britannia. OCLC locates 2 copies in North America (at Harvard and Yale).

        The Sacred Egyptian Bean

      London: Dr. Thornton, 1799-1807 - Dr. Robert John Thornton (c.1765-1832) Hand-colored engraving from Temple of Flora London: Dr. Thornton, 1799-1807 32” x 37” framed Dr. Robert Thornton was determined that his country produce the greatest series of botanical illustrations of all time, and his Temple of Flora is unsurpassed as a botanical document of the Romantic era. Thornton assembled the finest flower painters to paint the original designs that served as the basis for the engravings, and no expense was spared in their production. They are the first botanicals to include landscape backgrounds laden with symbolic, sentimental, and dramatic elements. It is the forceful stylization of flowers, as well as their historical, allegorical and/or fanciful backgrounds, that place the Temple of Flora among the greatest botanical books of all time. The work was first issued in parts between 1799 and l807. Thornton intended the work as a pictorial celebration, accompanied by prose and verse text, of the classification system of Linnaeus. He employed the artists Peter Henderson, Philipp Reinagle, and others to paint the plants, each in an exotic and romantic setting. Thornton exhausted his fortune on the book’s production, but in the process he created one of the most beautiful and distinctive works of botanical art of the modern era.

        The Dormant and Extinct Baronage of England

      09 - London - Printed for J. White, 1807 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A scarce set of genealogy books by Thomas C. Banks. First editions. Bound in quarter calf with gilt lettering and decoration on the spine and marbled paper covered boards. With Lord Gwydyr's armorial nameplate on the front pastedowns. Thomas Christopher Banks (17651854) was a genealogist. The Manual of the Nobility, his first publication, appeared in 1807. The same year he brought out the first volume of the Dormant and Extinct Baronage of England; a second volume followed in 1808, and a third in 1809. The work drew heavily on Sir William Dugdale's Baronetage of England (16756). Peter Burrell, 1st Baron Gwydyr (1754 1820) featured in English politics at the end of the 18th century but he was best known for his involvement in cricket, particularly his part in the foundation of Marylebone Cricket Club in 1787. Condition: The bindings are firm. The inner hinges are strained. There is some wear to the extremities, including some bumping and rubbing. The hinges are starting and some of the boards are attached by the cords only and may possibly detach in the post. Internally the pages are bright though with mild intermittent spotting. There are small ink inscriptions on the front pastedowns. The front free endpaper of volume one is loose and may detach in the post. Overall the condition is good..

        [Plums] Carnation Plum, Wine Sour Plum, Dauphine Plum

      [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.
