      F. and C. Rivington, G. Wilkie and J. Robinson etc, London. 1810 - Eighteenth edition, enlarged and carefully improved, by Joseph Dessiou. Octavo. pp.xvi, 336 + tables. 8 engraved plates including a frontispiece portrait, maps, charts, Hadley's quadrant and sextant, "a first rate ship of war"; at the rear are two folding planispheres of the stars. Quarter leather with marbled boards. The endpapers and blanks are densely filled with notes of a navigational nature, in Swedish, and in an exquisitely fine hand, such that they add to, rather than detract from, the book's condition. The majority of the notes date from 1867. The tables at the rear are unnumbered but an approximate guess would put them in the region of 200 pages - they concern difference of latitude and departure, logarithms, artificial sines, tangents, and secants, finding the latitude by two altitudes of the sun, high water, &c. One page has been extensively repaired but is complete. Very good. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Relación histórica y moral de la portentosa imagen de N. Sr. Jesucristo crucificado aparecido en una de las cuevas de S. Miguel de Chalma, hoy real convento y santuario de este nombre, de religiosos ermitaños de N.G.P. y doctor S. Agustin, en esta Nueva España, y en esta provincia del santísimo nombre de Jesús de México. Con los compendios de las vidas de los dos venerables religiosos legos y primeros anacoretas de este santo desierto, F. Bartolomé de Jesús María, y F. Juan de San Josef

      [Mexico] : Casa de Arizpe Small 4to. [7] ff., 386 pp., plt.. 1810 One has here the sole edition of the standard and well-thought-of account of the Sanctuary of Jesus Christ at Chalma, the second most visited pilgrimage site in Mexico. The cave housing the Christ Crucified statue was a pre-Columbian sacred site and pilgrimage destination; miraculously the pre-Columbian statue with magical healing power morphed into the Christ image soon after it was visited by early Augustinian friars, who took over the cave and the surrounding area and build a church and religious compound. The original Christ statue was destroyed by fire in the 18th century. In addition to the wealth of information here about the origins of the cave as a site of miracles, its history throughout the colonial period, and accounts of miracles occurring there, this work also has important biographies of Augustinians of the 17th century who played important roles in the care and perpetuation of the site. The engraving shows the cave, the Christ figure, pilgrims, and Augustinian friars. 19th-century mottled sheep, abraded, missing spine label; spine is cracking down center, and volume may sometime split into two halves. Some brown stains, most notable in inner and upper or lower margins; lower outside corner of title–page neatly excised. Old ink notes and scribblings.

        Die bayerischen Prinzessinnen Amalie Auguste und Elisabeth Ludovika. Ovales Doppelporträt der 1801 geborenen königlichen Zwillingsschwestern, Töchter von König Max I. Joseph, im Alter von etwa 9 Jahren mit gleicher Lockenfrisur.

      - Pastell, unten in Bleistift bezeichnet "Dessiné d'après la Nature par Hoffnaß", um 1810, Durchmesser 43 x 34,5 cm, mit alter Montage 60 x 44 cm. Thieme-Becker Bd. XVII, S. 288/89. - Ein bezaubernd schönes Bildnis der beiden reizenden Prinzessinnen in blütenfrischer Erhaltung. Amalie Auguste lebte 1801 - 1877 und heiratete 1822 den Prinzen und späteren König Johann I. von Sachsen. Elisabeth Ludovika (Elise) lebte 1801 - 1873 und wurde 1823 die Gemahlin des preußischen Kronprinzen und späteren Königs Friedrich Wilhelm IV. Sie verdient als Sammlerin von Aquarellen bayerischer Künstler als Erinnerung an ihre Heimat besondere Beachtung. Ihre bedeutende Sammlung befindet sich heute in Potsdam-Sanssouci (Münchner Biedermeier. Aquarelle aus der Sammlung der Königin Elisabeth von Preußen. Ausst.-Kat. München 1991). Beide Zwillinge wurden auch von Karl Stieler porträtiert; sowohl Ferdinand Piloty als auch Lorenz Quaglio fertigten danach Lithographien (Winkler 642, 10/11; 965, 44,5 u. 45,5 sowie Abb. 83 - 87). - Der Porträtmaler Hoffnas stammte aus Mannheim und war dann in München tätig. „Er leistete in der Miniaturmalerei und als Zeichner in Sepia Vorzügliches und die Blätter in letzterer Art wurden sehr gesucht" (Nagler). Seine Tätigkeit als Professor der Zeichenkunst an der kgl. Pagerie und am Kadettencorps ließ ihm wenig Zeit, sodass seine Arbeiten überaus selten sind. - Gerahmt. Aus altem Wittelsbacher Besitz.

        The Book of Job translated from the Hebrew. With a Preface and Annotations by the Rev. F. Randolph, D.D

      8vo. Bath: Richard Cruttwell, 1810. 8vo, (4), xv, â??188â? (i.e. 206)pp. Early calf, black label lettered in gilt, backstrip neatly repaired, a very good copy. First edition by the unsung genius Elizabeth Smith: â??Aside from a governess who taught her French and a little Italian, from six to eight years of age and again from ten to twelve, Smith was largely self-taught. In 1789 she became governess to her siblings and began an influential friendship with Henrietta Maria Bowdler. In 1794 she began learning Arabic and Persian from her brother's oriental dictionary; in 1796 she studied Hebrew from a Bible belonging to Henrietta Bowdler's mother. Between 1795 and 1799 she learned Spanish, German, Arabic, Persian, Greek, Latin, Hebrew, some Syriac, and Erse, as well as music, mathematics, and astronomy.â? Biblical translations by women are very rare in general -- this book, though not rare, is of importance in that genre and it would be pleasant to imagine that she might have met William Blake who at this time was also teaching himself Hebrew in order to publish his â??Illustrations of the Book of Jobâ?.

        A lecture on the plan which is proposed to adopt for improving the Royal Institution and rendering it permanent,

      Delivered at the Theatre of the Royal Institution, March 3d, 1810 … Printed by desire of the managers.A lecture by Sir Humphry Davy arguing for the improvement of the Royal Institution by documenting the history of inventions and the progress of the sciences and technology. He notes that the promotion of knowledge has to be supported by more public experiments and research and generally opening up the institution. ?'The diffusion and improvement of science may not be limited to those persons only who can personally attend the Institution … its objects are not private; but public … it is desirous of enabling all to profit by those novel objects which may be developed … and to be considered as the common property of all cultivated minds?' (pp. 24/5).Sir Humphry Davy (1778 ?-1829), chemist and inventor, is probably best remembered today for his discoveries of several alkali and alkaline earth metals, as well as contributions to the discoveries of the elemental nature of chlorine and iodine. 1810, the year of the present lecture, was to be a busy year for him: he gave Chlorine its current name and insisted it was in fact an element. He also showed that oxygen could not be obtained from the substance known as oxymuriatic acid (HCl solution) and thus overturned Lavoisier?'s definition of acids as compounds of oxygen.8vo, (ii) + 41 + (1)pp., advertisements, final page lightly smudged, recent marbled boards lettered on spine, a very good copy., [1810].

        An Account of Expeditions to the Sources of the Mississippi, and through the Western Parts of Louisiana, to the sources of the Arkansaw, Kans, La Platte, and Pierre Jaun, Rivers.

      Philadelphia: C. & A. Conrad, & Co., 1810. - 8vo., (8 ½ x 5 ¼ inches). (Evenly browned throughout, occasional spotting). 5 fine folding engraved maps (edges slightly frayed, browned), one full-page map, 3 folding plans (browned, some offsetting); engraved frontispiece (offsetting to title-page). Contemporary brown sheep, gilt ruled, the spine in six compartments separated by five raised bands, black morocco gilt lettering piece in one (rebacked, generally a bit worn). Provenance: With the bookplate of bibliographer John Thomas Lee to the front pastedown. First edition. This edition contains the first appearance in print of the first maps of the Southwest to be based on firsthand exploration. The Louisiana Purchase was one of Thomas Jefferson's crowning achievements, and in the following four years he commissioned a number of expeditions to explore the largely unknown territory. In 1804 Lewis and Clark ventured westward from St. Louis; Sibley, Dunbar and Freeman explored the Spanish border region in Texas; and in 1806 Pike went to explore the southernmost border region north of New Spain. His orders were to explore the Arkansas and Red Rivers, but by February of 1807 he had reached the upper reaches of the Rio Grande having missed the Red River entirely: "Spanish authorities learned of his presence and sent a force to arrest him and his men. They were taken to Santa Fe and then sent on to Chihuahua. Pike's maps and papers were confiscated, but he managed to retain his diary and journals by secreting them in the gun barrels of his men. Apparently he was able to convince the Spaniards that he had entered New Spain by accident, as he was escorted by armed guard through Texas via San Antonio to the Sabine, where he was released. He arrived at Natchioches in June, 1807, having thus had the opportunity to examine New Mexico and Texas in some detail, at the expense of the Spanish government" (Jenkins). "In the hierarchy of significant westward expeditions, that of Lieutenant Zebulon Montgomery Pike (1779-1813) ranks right below that of Lewis and Clark. While his was not the first official reconnaissance of the west, he provided 'the earliest official geographical image of the trans-Mississippi West,' Pike's map and journal provided the first authentic information about the Upper Mississippi. On the Conejos River, an effluent of the Rio Grande, well into Spanish territory, Pike boldly constructed a fort. It was at this fort that he was arrested and taken first to Santa Fe and then to Chihuahua for a meeting with Don Nemesio Salcedo, the governor of New Spain. The authorities confiscated, among other documents, a manuscript map of the Santa Fe Trail. While in custody of the Spanish, Pike learned 'just how many and what kind of troops the Spanish had on hand to defend the northern provinces,' according to William Goetzmann, 'and he was well informed on the character and personalities of all the Spanish military leaders. No more successful espionage operation has ever been conducted in recorded American history.' Pike returned from captivity without his sketch maps, making the creation of his own map more difficult. He had managed to smuggle traverse tables in the rifle barrels that he and his men were allowed to take with them after being released. These tables enabled him to reconstruct parts of the upper Arkansas, and to his credit, his map is the first to accurately delineate the Arkansas and its tributaries. Nevertheless, large sections of 'A Chart of the Internal Part of Louisiana' (1810), were based on Alexander von Humboldt's map. It is paradoxical that Pike, who had actually explored the internal part of Louisiana, relied on the cartography of Humboldt, who had never been there" (Cohen). Bradford 4415. Field 1217. Graff 3290.

        Rules and Regulations for the Sword Exercise of the Cavalry

      London: T. Egerton, 1810. Reprint of 1810. Fine in a recent 1/4 brown morocco leather and marbled paper covered boards with gilt borders and text stamping on the spine. Without a dust jacket. The title page of this volume provides no indication as to the author; however, the last page of text bears the initials "J.G.L.M." which are the initials of John Gaspard le Marchant. Marchant was a cavalry officer, promoted to Major-General in the British Army, who lived from 1766 to 1812 when he was killed in the Napoleonic Wars at the battle of Salamanca. He is best known for having developed the British Light Cavalry Sword (Pattern 1796 or P1796). Additionally, he sponsored a standardized military training program for British officers. In that vein he wrote several training manuals for the cavalry this being one of them. An octavo measuring 8 3/16" tall by 5" deep containing 98 pages of text and illustrated with 29 fold-out plates. Originally published in December, 1796 this is a reprint of 1810 printed for the "War-Office and sold by T. Egerton, Military Library, Whitehall." A remarkably clean and bright copy with virtually no foxing or tanning of the pages. Very uncommon as such.

Goethe zeichnete auf seiner italienischen Reise ein ganz ähnliches Zyklopenmauerwerk. Auch L Richter (1803-1887) und C. Wagner (1804-1867) studierten bei einer gemeinsamen Wanderung am 20. September 1824 dasselbe Motiv in Palästrina, nicht weit von Olevano gelegen (vgl. Kat. 87, Gemälde Ölstudien und Zeichnungen, Nr. 41 a & b, Galerie Joseph Fach, Frankfurt am Main 2005). Bereits 1832 erreichte Corrodi über Genua und Pisa Rom, wo er sich in F.L. Catels (1778-1856) Atelier ausbildete und bald auch zu der von ihm am meisten bevorzugten Malweise, der Aquarelltechnik, fand. In Rom, wo er fast sein gesamtes Leben verbrachte, wurde er von hochgestellten Persönlichkeiten wie z.B. Zar Nikolaus protegiert und war sehr erfolgreich. Auch das englische Königshaus kaufte zahlreiche seiner Werke. Corrodis Haus in Rom war bis zu seinem Tod beliebter Treffpunkt u.a. seiner Schweizer Landsleute.

        Architecture hydraulique, edited by C.-L. Navier. 4 vols.

      Firmin Didot 1810-1819, Paris - Belidor, Bernard Forest de (1697?-1761). Architecture hydraulique, ou l'art de conduire, d'Èlever, et de menager les eaux pour les differents besoins de la vie. Edited by Claude-Louis Navier (1785-1836). 4 vols., 4to. Frontispiece portrait of Belidor in Vol. I, 230 engraved folding plates. Paris: F. Didot, 1810-19 (last three volumes in the set dated 1810). 289 x 211 mm. Tree sheep ca. 1819, gilt spines, rubbed, spine of Vol. III repaired. Some scattered foxing, light browning, otherwise fine. First Navier Edition, and best edition, of Belidor's Architecture hydraulique, first published in 1737-39. Belidor, a military engineer, worked under Cassini and La Hire during their survey of the meridian from Paris to the English Channel (1718), and taught mathematics at the artillery school at La FËre, where he authored several textbooks. Seeking to introduce mathematics into practical engineering, Belidor wrote La science des ingenieurs (1729) and Architecture hydraulique; it was with these two works that Belidor "entered into the science of mechanics proper with a summons to builders to base design and practice on its principles" (DSB). Both of these works served as engineering textbooks for nearly a century. In the 1810s Belidor's two works were issued in revised and expanded editions by Claude-Louis Navier, a graduate of the Ecole Polytechnique and the Ecole des Ponts et Chaussees, who had been recruited by the latter institution to edit the works of his great-uncle, the great French engineer Emiland Gauthey. By 1813 Navier had completed this task, and had also issued a revised and expanded edition of Belidor's La science des ingenieurs. [Navier's] taste for scholarship and his background of higher analysis at the Ecole Polytechnique and of practical engineering learned from his granduncle gave him the ideal preparation to make significant contributions to engineering science. During the period 1807-1820 he made mathematical analysis a fundamental tool of the civil engineer and codified the nascent concept of mechanical work for the science of machines. Navier's success as editor of Belidor's Science des ingenieurs and of Gauthey's works led their publisher, Firmin Didot, to invite him to prepare a revised edition of Belidor's Architecture hydraulique. Navier sought to correct the errors found in this work and to give it a mathematical sophistication that would make it useful to the graduates of the Ecole Polytechnique. One item needed particular attention--the study of machines, for which Navier sought a quantitative criterion that would facilitate the selection of the best machines and motors. Research on this topic, conducted during 1814-1818, led him to the concept of quantity of action, which Coriolis shortly afterward transformed into that of mechanical work. "In Navier's writings the march of the argument leads to the concept of work, whereas in those of J.-V. Poncelet and of Coriolis it flows from this concept. It took an embryonic form in the writings of Lazare Carnot, found its birth in those of A.-T. Petit, Poncelet, and Navier, and achieved the status of a general principle of applied mechanics in those of Coriolis. In Navier's revision of Architecture hydraulique, the engineer found this concept so defined as to give a measure of the usefulness of motors and a criterion that permitted rational design of motors and machines"(DSB). Navier's contributions to the Architecture hydraulique are confined to the first volume, which contains notes and commentary equal or surpassing the original text in length. The remaining volumes consist of reissues, with new titles dated 1810, of the edition published in 1780. The plates in all the volumes were re-engraved by Martin. Navier is best remembered to day as one of the authors of the Navier-Stokes equations for fluid dynamics, which can be used to model both non-turbulent and turbulent flow. These equations are of fundamental importance in the science of aerodynamics. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
