        WILLIAM TELL; OR, SWISSERLAND DELIVERED

      London: Sherwood, Neely, and Jones, 1809. First English Edition. Hardcover. Some foxing to the frontispiece with slight offsetting to the title page; contents quite clean and bright. Binding tight and firm. About Fine and quite scarce. Duodecimo (3-7/8" x 6-1/4") bound in modern quarter calf leather over marbled boards, five raised bands and gilt rules to spine, gilt lettering, marbled endpapers; xxxvi, 115, {5 advertisements] pages. First published in Paris by Didot in 1802, this is the first edition of the first English translation from the French by William B. Hewetson. Includes a Life of the Author by Jauffret. Complete with half-title page, frontispiece engraved by Mackenzie after Thomson, and 5 pages of ads at the end. According to medieval legend William Tell from Burglen was known as an expert marksman with the crossbow. In the early 1300s, the Habsburg emperors were seeking to dominate Uri. Hermann Gessler, the newly appointed Austrian Vogt of Altdorf, raised a pole in the village's central square with his hat on top and demanded that all the local townsfolk bow before it. As Tell passed by without bowing, he was arrested. He received the punishment of being forced to shoot an apple off the head of his son, Walter, or else both would be executed. Tell had been promised freedom if he shot the apple. Tell split the fruit with a single bolt from his crossbow, without mishap. When Gessler queried him about the purpose of the second bolt in his quiver, Tell answered that if he had ended up killing his son in that trial, he would have turned the crossbow on Gessler himself. Gessler became enraged at that comment and had Tell bound and brought to his ship to be taken to his castle at Küssnacht. In a storm on Lake Lucerne, Tell managed to escape. On land, he went to Küssnacht, and when Gessler arrived, Tell shot him with the crossbow. This defiance of the Austrian, Gessler, sparked a rebellion, leading to the formation of the Swiss Confederation.

        A Narrative of the Campaign of the British Army in Spain, Commanded by His Excellency Lieut.-General Sir John Moore, K.B. &c.&c.&c. Authenticated by Official Papers and Original Letters, by James Moore, Esq. The Second Edition, corrected.

      London: Printed for Joseph Johnson, 1809 - Quarto (270 × 210 mm). Contemporary half russia, bright orange marbled boards, flat spine, title gilt direct, compartments formed by a beaded roll, similar roll to spine and corner edges, edges "marbled" in red, marbled endpapers. A little rubbed, spine slightly scuffed, hinges sometime tightened, light browning, some offsetting from the portrait, one leaf and the map with tears, no loss, old repairs, some consequent paste-action browning to the map, but overall a very good copy. Portrait frontispiece, plate of a view of the British and French positions at Corunna, folding plan, large folding general map with the "March of the British Columns," coloured. First edition, of a work which ran to a second quarto, and three further octavo editions in the same year. Edited from Moore's papers by his brother following Sir John's death on the battlefield at Corunna. Severely wounded, having been struck "on the left breast and shoulder by a cannon shot", he lingered long enough to hear of his victory. His last words, reportedly, were, "I hope the people of England will be satisfied!" In fact, they were not, the Times remarking; "The fact must not be disguised . that we have suffered a shameful disaster" (quoted in Hibbert, Corunna, p. 188) and this book was written to defend his memory. The first is not common, and here is offered in a pleasingly unsophisticated contemporary binding. Sandler 2400. [Attributes: First Edition]

"Probably written as a companion textbook to the mineralogical lectures delivered by the author at Oxford, Outlines of Mineralogy is a derivative work that reflects the state of mineralogy during the first decade of the nineteenth century. It is principally based upon the earlier mineralogical writings of Richard Kirwan and René Just Haüy. For example, the system of classification that divides the mineral species has been lifted from Kirwan and uses the divisions of Earthy, Saline, Inflammable and Metallic Substances. An appendix handles rocks and other aggregates. The crystallographical information scattered through out is derived from Haüy" (Mineralogical Record Online Lib.). Kidd was a professor or chemistry at Oxford who also lectured on mineralogy and geology. He published two textbooks on the subject, viz. the Outlines in 1809 and A Geological Essay in 1815 (Ward & Carozzi 1254).

        THE TRAVELS OF CAPTS. LEWIS & CLARKE [sic], BY ORDER OF THE GOVERNMENT OF THE UNITED STATES, PERFORMED IN THE YEARS 1804, 1805, & 1806, BEING UPWARDS OF THREE THOUSAND MILES, FROM ST. LOUIS, BY WAY OF THE MISSOURI, AND COLUMBIA RIVERS, TO THE PACIFICK OCEAN: CONTAINING AN ACCOUNT OF THE INDIAN TRIBES, WHO INHABIT THE WESTERN PART OF THE CONTINENT UNEXPLORED, AND UNKNOWN BEFORE.

      Philadelphia: Hubbard Lester, 1809. - 300pp. plus five engraved plates. Without the folding map, seldom present. Five engraved plates. Antique half calf and paper boards, leather label. Slight paper loss in margin of final four leaves, not affecting text. First edition of the so-called "Apocrypha edition" of Lewis and Clark. In response to the growing curiosity of the public regarding the findings of Lewis and Clark and the delay in publication of the "authorized account" of their expedition, this compilation of bits and pieces from already published works appeared (culled from Gass, Clark, Mackenzie, Carver, and Jefferson's MESSAGE. of 1806), misleading the reader into believing it was the account sanctioned by the government and containing all the information gathered during the journey. Despite its hodge-podge nature, it provided most of the world with its first detailed account of the Lewis and Clark expedition. It further contains five plates, purporting to be of western Indians. One of these is knocked off from the frontispiece of Bartram's TRAVELS.; the others have no earlier appearance that we can trace. The present copy lacks the incredibly rare folding map, which Wheat notes as "the earliest published map with legends stemming from Lewis and Clark." Howes calls this the "counterfeit" edition, and Sabin states that, according to Paltsits, it is "the earliest edition of an unauthorized 'counterfeit' account." Robert Becker (in Wagner-Camp) incorrectly cites the London map as accompanying this edition. This first Philadelphia edition is quite rare, and is almost invariably found in terrible condition, almost always without the map. LITERATURE OF THE LEWIS AND CLARK EXPEDITION 4a.1. WAGNER-CAMP 8:1.

        Philosophie Zoologique

      Paris: Dentu and the author. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. RARE FIRST EDITON of Lamarck&#39;s landmark work on evolution: "The dawn of evolution," and "a classic in the field of evolutionary theory" (Printing and the Mind of Man, 262). A BEAUTIFUL COPY in contemporary tree calf. Lamarck was "interested in meteorology, geology, chemistry, and paleontology and it is thought that his observations in these fields contributed to the formulation of his evolutionary theory, which he first put forward in Zoological Philosophy (1809). Until the late 1790s, he had believed that species remained unchanged, but fossil evidence, and his nonbelief in extinction, combined to change his mind. He saw evolution as a natural tendency to greater complexity and put forward four laws to explain how such complexity is brought about. The second law states that &#39;the production of a new organ in an animal body results from a new need that continues to make itself felt,&#39; and the fourth law, for which he is best remembered, states that such acquired characteristics are inherited" (Biographical Encyclopedia of Scientists). "With this theory, Lamarck offered much more than an account of how species change. He also explained what he understood to be the shape of a truly &#39;natural&#39; system of classification of the animal kingdom. The primary feature of this system was a single scale of increasing complexity composed of all the different classes of animals, starting with the simplest microscopic organisms, or "infusorians," and rising up to the mammals. The species, however, could not be arranged in a simple series. Lamarck described them as forming "lateral ramifications" with respect to the general "masses" of organization represented by the classes. Lateral ramifications in species resulted when they underwent transformations that reflected the diverse, particular environments to which they had been exposed. "By Lamarck&#39;s account, animals, in responding to different environments, adopted new habits. Their new habits caused them to use some organs more and some organs less, which resulted in the strengthening of the former and the weakening of the latter. New characters thus acquired by organisms over the course of their lives were passed on to the next generation... Small changes that accumulated over great periods of time produced major differences. Lamarck thus explained how the shapes of giraffes, snakes, storks, swans, and numerous other creatures were a consequence of long-maintained habits. The basic idea of "the inheritance of acquired characters" had originated with Anaxagoras, Hippocrates, and others, but Lamarck was essentially the first naturalist to argue at length that the long-term operation of this process could result in species change" (Britannica). Although Lamarck&#39;s theory of evolution was ultimately replaced by Darwin&#39;s theory of evolution by natural selection, Darwin acknowledged his debt to Lamarck, writing in the preface to the third edition of The Origin of Species, that Lamarck "first did the eminent service of arousing attention to the probability of all change in the organic as well as in the inorganic world being the result of natural law, and not of miraculous interposition". Paris: Dentu and the author, 1809. Octavo, contemporary tree calf gilt, morocco lettering pieces. Three parts in two volumes (complete). Repair to spine leather. Small repair to title page of vol. one; closed tear to p.127 of vol. 1. Text very clean with only occasional light foxing. A beautiful copy of a scarce and important work.
