Le colonel Grobert (1757-181?) fut tout à la fois militaire, homme de lettres et inventeur. Son ouvrage sur la scénographie réunit son intérêt pour le théâtre en soit (il est notamment l'auteur d'une pièce sur la Bataille des Pyramides) et ses dispositions en mécanique - un chapitre entier est consacré au machines qui permettent la mobilité des décors.

        ALS from Keswick, Dec. 5, 1809, to Ebenezer Elliott, "The Corn Law Rhymer".

      1809 62 lines over three sides of folded quarto leaf, with integral address; several old, unobtrusive folds, one small tear at inner margin repaired with archival tape, damp stain in upper inner margin, sl. affecting text.An extensive letter in which Southey writes to Elliott in response to a request for advice on his poetic endeavours. The senior poet has evidently been sent a manuscript by Elliott, and informs him it will be returned 'by coach (as a cheaper conveyance than the post from hence) ... [with] a copy of my best poem by way of ballast, just to give your papers bulk enough for security'. Southey discusses the content of the manuscript, informing Elliott 'Your plan obviates many of the faults in the Soldier's Love & adds to it some striking things'. He advises, however, that Elliott 'lay this poem by, for experience has taught me that in literary architecture it is better to build anew than to alter & repair upon an old foundation'. The subject of the poem is one that interests him, and even seems to have been one that he considered utilising himself, though a word with a sage head eventually convinced him otherwise: 'I have talked upon that story with Wordsworth, but the difficulties appeared to outweigh the advantages, splendid as they are at first sight.' As an alternative topic, Southey advises that Elliott consult Sharon Turner's History of the Anglo Saxons

        A Collection of Farces and Other Afterpieces...

      London: Longman, 1809. Seven volumes, duodecimo, each with a portrait frontispiece, contemporary half calf, gilt spines. Collection of late eighteenth and early nineteenth century popular plays, some racy and originating on the Continent. As the full title boasts, the plays were performed at the theatres Royal, Drury-Lane, Covent-Garden and Hay-Market, and printed under authority from the managers of the prompt books. Many are works by the editor, thespian and writer Elizabeth Inchbald (née Simpson 1753-1821), who was responsible for translation of the remainder. Although Elizabeth enjoyed little success as a stage actress, she became a well-established dramatist who attempted (with varying degrees of success) to use the stage as a platform for her radical and libertarian political views. Understandably, during the last decade of the eighteenth centuries, some theatre managers were unwilling to stage her plays due in the strained political climate of the time. The portrait frontispieces include Thomas and Charles Dibdin, James Cobb, John Milton and Samuel Foote. Some foxing and offsetting, last volume water stained, but very good overall.

        Voyage autour du Monde, pendant les années 1790, 1791, et 1792... auquel on a joint des recherches sur les Terres Australes de Drake, et un examen critique du voyage de Roggeween...

      Paris: Courcier, 1809. Five volumes, octavo, and a quarto atlas; contemporary French quarter calf and papered boards, flat spines banded in gilt with double orange labels, a beautiful set. Fleurieu's narrative of the voyage of the Solide under the command of Etienne Marchand, the first French commercial voyage to the Northwest coast of America, and the second French circumnavigation (some twenty-five years after Bougainville's). Lada-Mocarski commends this book as "a very important and authoritative work for the history of the Northwest coast".Returning from Bengal in 1788, Marchand had come across the voyager Portlock who told him of the lucrative fur trade between the Northwest coast and China. 'The trading firm of Baux in Marseille underwrote a commercial expedition and purchased and fitted out the copper-sheathed ship Solide, which sailed in December 1790 for the Pacific via Cape Horn. At the Marquesas, Marchand took possession of two islands, Uapou and Nukuhiva (which he named Ile Baux), not knowing of Ingraham's visit on the Hope two months earlier... At the Northwest coast he obtained a large cargo of furs, sailed south to Hawaii, through the Marianas, and reached Macao... This was a successful voyage but a commercial failure. Marchand was unable to sell his furs, and upon his return to France they were impounded by a revolutionary faction and eventually perished. The firm of Baux ultimately lost two-thirds of its capital in the venture... ' (Forbes).Nevertheless, Marchand had proved that in times of peace, the French could compete successfully in the Pacific trade. As Marchand died in 1793, the work was actually written by Count Charles Pierre Fleurieu, himself an explorer. Fleurieu was much more than just an editor here: he put the narrative together from the logbooks of the ship's surgeon Claude Roblet, and Prosper Chanal, the second-in-command. Using these as a foundation he brought together what O'Reilly and Reitman describe as 'un vaste travail de compilation, où les observations géographiques, nautiques, ethnographiques et zoologiques sont confrontées avec celles des voyages espagnols (Mendaña, Quiros), hollandais (Roggeween), anglais et américains (Cook, Ingraham, Roberts, Hergest)... '. As a result the book includes a good account of discoveries along the American coast, from Cortes in 1537 to Malaspina in 1790, including records of Drake, Juan de Fuca, Cook, La Pérouse, Meares, Colnett, Portlock and Dixon. Considerable text is devoted to descriptions of natural history specimens collected en route. The final volume contains a critical analysis of Roggeveen's voyage, and the engraved charts include five of Alaska and the Northwest coast, four of Marquesan interest and one of Hawaii, while the China Sea chart contains important corrections.The book was published in two versions in Paris in 1798-1800; the octavo format version was reissued in the form offered here, with the simple substitution of a new title-page (Forbes cites a re-issue of the quarto rather than the octavo version, perhaps in error).

        Recherches sur le mouvement des ondes.

      Paris, Didot, 1809. ____ Première édition. "Depuis longtemps j'avais cru remarquer que le mouvement des ondes se faisait sentir à des profondeurs très considérables, tandis qu'on était généralement persuadé qu'il n'agissait effectivement qu'à quelques mètres de la superficie de la mer. [...] Impatient de vérifier mes observations, [...] je me livrais à des expériences suivies, qui toutes me confirmèrent dans mon opinion." Selon Prony, les phénomènes rapportés ne peuvent s'expliquer par les principes connus de la mécanique des fluides, mais "les raisons et expériences sur lesquelles M. Bremontier appuie son opinion, sont d'un grand poids." Les observations et expériences de Bremontier ont été faites dans la rade Saint-Jean de Luz, l'embouchure de l'Adour, le port de Bordeaux... Nicolas Brémontier (1738-1809), inspecteur des Ponts-et-Chaussées, est l'auteur d'un "Mémoire sur les Dunes" des Landes, qu'il avait été chargé de fixer par des plantations de forêts.

        Genera crustaceorum et insectorum, secundum ordinem naturalem in familias disposita, iconibus exemplisque, plurimis explicata. I-IV.

      Paris and Strasbourg: A. Koening, 1806-1809. Four volumes, octavo, 12 plates and 2 folding tables; in contemporary marbled paper boards with spine labels, old shelf markers to spine. First edition. Pierre André Latreille (1762-1833) had entered the Paris Museum in 1799, and became Professor of Entomology on the death of Lamarck. He went on to publish a great number of important entomological books and articles, including several relating to other French voyages to the Pacific, and contributing the volume on insects to Cuvier's revolutionary Règne Animal of 1817. A memoir of Latreille, with a portrait, was published in Sir William Jardine's Naturalist's Library for 1841.This is one of Latreille's most significant works: while Latreille praised Cuvier for having founded zoological classification on comparative anatomy, he based his own classification work primarily on the consideration of external characters. Nonetheless, as one of his successors remarked more than half a century after the appearance of the 'Genera', the work offered "such an exact exposition of the characters of the insects, arachnids, and crustaceans, and nearly always such a just appreciation of the natural affinities of these animals, that the most modern researches only added rectifications of a second order" (DSB VIII, p. 48). Moderate foxing.

So besuchte er Nordamerika, den Nahen Osten und zahlreiche europäische Länder. - Mit Ansichten v. Ulm (5), Regensburg (5), Budapest, Passau (4), Linz, Grein, Melk, Aggstein, Greifenstein, Wien (10), Pressburg, Melk, Belgrad, Ruschtschuk, Sulina etc. und den Karten vom Donaulauf bzw. vom Schwarzen Meer. Auch die hübschen Textholzschnitte zeigen Trachten sowie Ansichten kleinerer Ortschaften (vor allem im Oberlauf), von denen kaum gestochene Blätter existieren (z.B. Tuttlingen, Sigmaringen, Geissingen).

      Havana: Imprenta del Gobierno, 1809. [9],180,[6]pp., plus one engraved plate. Contemporary red morocco, gilt ruled, gilt leather spine label. Printed on light blue paper. Boards and edges slightly worn. Light foxing and dampstaining. Very good. In a morocco box. The first Spanish edition and rare Havana imprint of this technical manual on the production of coffee in Saint Domingue, originally written by P.J. Laborie and published in London in 1798. This Spanish translation was completed by Pablo Boloix, who wrote several tracts related to the Cuban and wider Caribbean economy and commerce. The manual gives detailed instructions on the establishment and operation of coffee plantations, following the example of those in Saint Domingue. It also gives a short assessment of the organization and state of the island in 1789, when the discontent that led to the Haitian Revolution was fomenting. Although coffee plants were first brought to Cuba in the mid-18th century, it was not until the dislocations caused by the rebellion in Saint Domingue forced out many colonists. The refugees, arriving in Cuba, brought better methods of production and led to the proliferation of coffee as a cash crop. Much of this manual is focused on the use of slaves in coffee production, and discusses best practices for purchasing, housing, and caring for them, as well as for maintaining authority. Very rare, we locate only four institutional copies of this imprint, at the Bancroft Library, Harvard, and the national libraries of Spain and Chile. MEDINA HABANA 250. PALAU 129004. SABIN 38431.
