      published by F.J. Sargent, London 1810 - Hand-coloured aquatint engraving by F.J. Sargent after J. Walmsley, backed onto early card mount. A highly atmospheric and lyrical view of `a place of retirement and peace' (Dorothy Wordsworth) Firmly in the 'picturesque' school of painters, Walmsley here shows an early summer morning on Loch Dochart, in Perthshire, Scotland: two travellers make an early start and the mist is still to be burnt off the waters by the newly risen sun, to the right the ruins of a castle are given a romantic air by the surrounding vegetation and the strongly-shadowed morning light. The Loch lies at the western end of Glen Lochart, a mile to the east of Crianlarich and in the shadow of Ben More.

As Beautiful and Fine as any Binding We&#39;ve Owned from the Period. 279 x 191 mm (11 x 7 1/2"). 2 p.l., 104 pp; [182] pp. ONE OF 150 COPIES. SUPERB CONTEMPORARY BURGUNDY STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, RICHLY TOOLED IN GILT AND IN BLIND, BY CHARLES HERING (his ticket on verso of front free endpaper), covers with blind-tooled frame of drawer handles and flowers bordered with gilt rules, central panel with gilt filigree cornerpieces and large blind-tooled arabesque centerpiece, raised bands, spine panels elegantly tooled in gilt, with blindstamped tools at corners, gilt titling, wide inner gilt dentelles, lavender watered silk endleaves with decorative gilt borders, all edges gilt. In an excellent modern red cloth slipcase. With three large woodcuts based on those in the 1496 edition, numerous woodcuts of fishing implements and heraldic shields in the text, and with the printer&#39;s device of Wynkyn de Worde and that of William Caxton in the colophon and following the index. Front pastedown with the engraved armorial bookplate of Archibald Philip Primrose, 5th Earl of Rosebery; half title with neat ink stamp of "Rosebery / Durdans" (see below). The faintest touch of rubbing to front joint, flyleaves a bit browned, second half of work with inoffensive offsetting in text bed, minor offsetting from printers&#39; devices, occasional mild foxing or tiny rust spots, otherwise an excellent, fresh copy internally, and THE GORGEOUS BINDING IN VERY FINE CONDITION, lustrous and virtually unworn. This is a facsimile of the 1496 printing by Wynkyn de Worde of the first modern edition of the classic work on hunting, hawking, fishing, and heraldry, our copy with distinguished provenance and in a very striking binding--in extraordinarily fine condition--by the best English binder of the early 19th century. The "Book of St. Albans" was traditionally attributed to a Benedictine prioress, Dame Juliana Berners (b. 1388), which gave her the distinction of being the earliest known female author in English. However, in his scholarly introduction, Joseph Haslewood (1769-1833) determines that only the work on hunting, and a portion of that on hawking, may comfortably be attributed to her. The other sections on heraldry, angling, and the details of hawking are translations (possibly done by Berners) of earlier works, probably in French. A bibliographer, antiquary, and founding member of the Roxburghe Club, Haslewood was well respected as an editor of early English literature (see, for example, items #69 and 70, below). Charles Hering (d. ca. 1812) was the most distinguished and influential English binder of the first decade of the 19th century, and although his career was brief (from about 1795-1812), Ramsden focuses on his work as representing the transition in binding styles from those of the German émigrés of the late 18th century to the new generation of binders headed by Lewis. Dibdin states that until "the star of Charles Lewis rose above the bibliopegistic horizon, no one could presume to &#39;measure business&#39; with [Hering]. There was a strength, squareness, and a good style of work about his volumes which rendered him deservedly a great favourite." (The Hering family workshop was continued, though with less distinction, by Charles Jr. and his brothers James and Henry into the 1830s.) The present item was once owned by Archibald Primrose (1847-1929), 5th Earl of Rosebery and 1st Earl of Midlothian, a Liberal politician who served briefly as Britain&#39;s prime minister in 1894-95. A fabulously wealthy man who then married the greatest heiress of the day, Hannah de Rothschild, Rosebery was able to indulge his passions for racehorses and for collecting books. The stamp on the title page indicates this volume resided at Durdans, the house in Epsom where he spent his final years.

        Two Portraits: Boy with Hoop and Young Girl in a Landscape

      London, ca. 1810]. 10 x 7-1/2 inches (images. Watercolor on card, first drawing signed lower right. Framed and glazed . "Buck, Adam, 1758-1833, portrait painter, elder son of Jonathan Buck, a silversmith of Castle Street, Cork, was born there in 1759. With a younger brother, Frederick, he studied art from an early age, and acquired some repute in youth in his native city as a painter of miniature portraits in water-colour. Coming to London in 1795, he settled at 174 Piccadilly, and soon gained popularity. He not only continued to paint miniature portraits in water-colour, but produced many portraits in oil and crayon of larger size. Between 1795 and 1833, the year of his death, he exhibited at the academy as many as 171 pictures. He also exhibited ten other works at the British Institution and at the Society of British Artists in Suffolk Street. But the pictures that he exhibited represent a small proportion of his labours. Numerous pictures by him were reproduced in coloured engravings, mostly in stipple, and had a wide circulation. Of extant coloured engravings after his pictures the originals of as many as forty or fifty are not known to have been exhibited. Among his sitters were the Earl of Cavan, the Duke of York, Sir Francis Burdett, Major Cartwright, John Cam Hobhouse, and John Burke, author of the Peerage,' and his family. His portraits were carefully finished, although they were stiff in treatment and design. Buck was at the same time busily employed as a teacher of portrait painting, and in 1811 he brought out a volume entitled Paintings on Greek Vases,' which contained a hundred designs, not only drawn, but also engraved by himself. This work, which was planned to continue a similar compilation by Sir William Hamilton, is now extremely scarce. In 1807 he moved from Piccadilly to Frith Street, Soho, and after several changes of residence died at 15 Upper Seymour Street West in 1833. Buck was married and left two sons, Alfred and Sidney; the latter followed his father's profession. A miniature portrait of Buck by himself dated 1804, is in the Sheepshanks gallery of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London. " - DNB

        Ichthyologie de Nice ou histoire naturelle des poissons du departement des Alpes Maritimes.

      Paris, F. Schoell, 1810. 8vo (220 x 140mm). pp. xxxvi, 388, with 11 fine handcoloured engraved plates. Old paper wrappers, new paper spine with old lettered label, uncut. The rare coloured issue of this important work on the ichthyologie of Nice. Joseph Antoine Risso (1777-1845) had a broad interest in natural history, 'no one knew more about the natural history of the Piedmont Region and the shores of Nice' (Damkaer p. 163). Together with Poiteau he published a splendid work on oranges and he was the author of a number of natural history books concerning the Nice area. It was due to him that the Natural History Museum of Nice opened its doors in 1846.//Dean II, 350; Nissen ZBI, 3430.

        Zur Farbenlehre. With: (2) GOETHE, Johann Wolfgang von. Erklärung der zu Goethe's Farbenlehre gehörigen Tafeln. (3) GOETHE, Johann Wolfgang von. Anzeige und Uebersicht des Goethischen Werkes zur Farbenlehre - Ein Heft mit XVI. illuminirten Kupfertafeln und deren Erklärung.

      Tübingen [and Vienna], J.G. Cotta [and in Commission bey Geistinger] 1810 [and 1812]. 2 text-volumes and 1 plates-volume. 8vo (text) and 4to (plates). pp. xlviii, 654; xxviii, 758; 24; 12, with 17 engraved plates (12 hand-coloured). Paper boards (text) and half morocco (plates). First edition of text-volumes of Goethe's work on colours, accompanied in a separate volume by the second edition of the 'Erklärung, Anzeige', and engraved plates. The first volume contains an exposition of Goethe's theories, whereas the second volume is a historical survey of the development of colour theories from the Greeks to his own time./''Goethe propounded that colours result from mixing light with darkness via the intervention of a turbid medium. The colour effects of turbid media were an 'Urphänomen', an ultimate, which itself cannot be explained but from which all that we observe can be made intelligible. His principle that the student of nature must think only in terms of what he sees, and that in numerical representation of concrete phenomena some of their essential conditions will inevitably be ignored placed him opposite adherents of mathematical physics'' (DSB ). As a consequence Goethe fiercely attacked Newton and the latter's demonstration that white light is composite and the basis of other colours. /Goethe's 'Farbenlehre' is today mostly known for the clash between his concept of a directly, perceptible sensory world and Newton's world of mathematical quantitativeness./The first edition of 'Zur Farbenlehre' was published in 1810. The 'Anzeige und Uebersicht des Goethischen Werkes zur Farbenlehre' was first published separately in a magazine, 'Morgenblatt für gebildete Stände' (Hagen 347b), but was re-issued in the same year together with the 'Erklärung der zu Goethe's Farbenlehre gehörigen Tafeln' in a separate volume (Hagen 347c and 347d). At the publication of the second edition of 'Zur Farbenlehre' in 1812 (Hagen 348), these two additional tracts were also republished and many printing errors were corrected./Some slight browning and foxing. A good set of this classic study.//DSB V, pp. 442-446; Hagen I 347, 348b, 348c.

Erste Ausgabe der seltenen Separatausgabe! - Erstdruck! - Christoph Wilhelm "Hufeland (hat) bereits bei der Gründung der (Humboldt) Universität (Oktober) 1810 darauf gedrungen, auch eine Poliklinik zu errichten, um den Studenten Gelegenheit zu geben, ihre theoretischen Kenntnisse in die Praxis umzusetzen. Als Vorbild für diese Klinik diente ihm diejenige, die er in Jena errichtet hatte, in der er sich täglich mit seinen Studenten traf. Hufeland blieb Direktor dieser Klinik bis zum Jahre 1833, in dem er seinem Assistenten Osann die Verantwortung übertrug. Nach dessen Tod im Jahre 1842 übernahm Romberg die Leitung.

        [Grapes] The Frankindale

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1810. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In good condition with some expertly repaired marginal tears. Image size: 16 x 13 inches. Sheet size: 22 ½ x 17 ¾ inches. A fine image from Brookshaw&#39;s masterpiece: &#39;Pomona Britannica; or, A Collection of the Most Esteemed Fruits&#39;. George Brookshaw&#39;s &#39;Pomona Britannica&#39; 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. &#39;Pomona Britannica&#39; 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. &#39;Pomona Britannica&#39; 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. &#39;Pomona Britannica&#39; is not only a didactic study, it is a masterpiece of illustration in which every picture is a testament to the artist&#39;s talent and ingenuity.

Contemporary calf, spines with 2 gilt lettered labels (slightly rubbed). Very rare text volumes of the first Russian circumnavigation of the globe. A large folio atlas accompanying the German text was published in 1814. The work was first published in Russian in St.Peterburg 1809-1812 likewise in 4to. "Its historic importance lies in the fact that the expedition commanded by Kruzenshtern was the first Russian circumnavigation of the globe, during which two ships - the Nadezhda and the Neva - visited and chartered the North Pacific area, including Alaska. They also discovered a number of hitherto unknown islands in the South Pacific" (Lada-Mocarski 62)./Second volume with some slight occasional marginal staining, the third volume with strong browning at the lower margin of the first 25 leaves sometimes affecting the printed text, the same to the last 10 leaves. The collation is similar to Lada-Mocarski, with one acception that our copy of the 3rd volume has one more leaf at the beginning; leaf 359/360 is numbered twice as is correct.//Arctic Bibliography 9377; Lada-Mocarski 62; Nissen ZBI, 2310.

      Paris Arthus Bertrand () - In-4, 200 pp., IV cartes dépliantes H.T. Cartonnage moderne plein papier, titre doré au dos, couverture conservée.(quelques piqures sur les trois premiers feuillets, deux cartes tachées dans la marge). Édition originale. O'Reilly & Reitman 4523 : Quatrefages (1810-1892), naturaliste français, fut nommé en 1855 à la chaire d'anatomie et d'ethnologie du Museum d'histoire naturelle de Paris, qu'il occupa avec éclat. A une époque historique et qui ne remonte guère plus haut que l'ère chrétienne, par voie de migration volontaire ou de dissémination involontaire, les premiers Polynésiens, venant des archipels orientaux de l'Asie, sont arrivés à Samoa et Tonga. De là, ils sont passés dans les lieux de habitat actuel à des époques différentes." Très important ouvrage pionnier dans l'analyse et la pensée ethnographique, Quatrefages fut le premier à émettre et affirmer l'hypothèse de l'origine des peuples Polynésiens, ceux-ci auraient pour origine une migration venue d'Asie et non l'Amérique du Sud, comme l'affirmaient, jusqu'à peu, nombre de scientifiques. Cette hypothèse fut confirmée dans la seconde partie du XXe siècle, entre autres, par l'étude de la botanique et et la linguistique dans les ilôts polynésiens. Il est démontré que ces populations sont d'origine du Sud-Est asiatique, de la région de Taïwan. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Piratical Seizure of the Brig Admiral Trowbridge, by Part of Her Crew, while lying at Anchor off the Island of Sooloo,

      London: Thomas Tegg,, c.1810. August 21, 1807, communicated by Capt. Alexander Wallace, including the Murder of Mr. C. B. Lloyd, and the Narrow Escape of William Sharpe. Also the Captivity and Cruel Treatment of M. de Brisson, on the Coast of Barbary. Small octavo (178 × 98 mm). Neatly in later plain greenish drab paper wraps. Double-folding uncoloured aquatint frontispiece, Some damping at the fore-edge of the frontispiece, visible largely only from verso, some slightly whitening to the image surface on the light creases from old refolds, mild browning, overall a very good copy of a slight and fragile item. First edition. Uncommon, just four copies located on COPAC, but only that at Durham records the presence of the sensational folding plate, OCLC adds six more. The Admiral Trowbridge was laying at anchor off Sulu, North Borneo, when crew-members ashore noticed that she had begun to drift, and, as there were no boats in the water around her, "concluded that the crew had overpowered the officers and seized the vessel". Eventually the Sultan of Sulu was persuaded by the offer "of a reward of 5,000 Spanish dollars to those who might retake the vessel", to send one of his headmen "with three large prows well manned and armed, accompanied by his chosen slaves", but the captured vessel manages to evade them, they had "he had neared the brig several times; but whenever it blew, she always got off, and [they] could not get close enough to board."A report comes through a few days later that a vessel "answering to her description had passed under American colours some days before, steering towards the island of Ternate." The bloody events that occurred on-board were reported by the mate, William Sharpe, who was sent away by the mutineers "with two seacunnies [native seamen] and three others not concerned in the mutiny". This account was published in the Prince of Wales&#39;s Island Gazette, and subsequently in the Naval Chronicle. The latter part of this attractive little publication recounts the misadventures of Pierre-Raymond Brisson, a shipwrecked French colonial official who was enslaved in North Africa in 1785.
