In this edition, the images are printed in large format to enhance the exotic lushness of the native flora, in the alternate issue of the third edition, the plates are reduced to quarto format and bound in to the text. The four aquatint views are after drawings by William Bell of Fort Marlborough, Sumatra, and are engraved by Joseph Stadler, chiefly known for his impressive work in Thornton's The Temple of Flora (1798 - 1807). The oversized atlas volume is frequently separated from the text, the catalogue for the Hill collection noting that in their copy 'the much-prized companion atlas is lacking here, as is usual'.

Jones, Barrington occupies a unique position in the history of early Australia, being the most famous of all the transported convicts, with a near heroic status in England. He travelled with the Third Fleet in 1791 and, given the greed of publishers, chapbooks were issued almost immediately in his name. Although none of the books were written by Barrington himself, ?the 1795 Voyage and the 1800 Sequel, in their numerous guises, do provide some details of events in New South Wales not elsewhere available? (Wantrup).This second edition is greatly expanded from the first. The additional material is largely extracted from David Collins's First Fleet account.

There were also catalogs of British and American publications, some miscellaneous articles, and a little poetry.

Brown.--v. 6-7, R. Walsh.

        Sketches of the country, character, and costume, in Portugal and Spain, made during the Campaign, and on the route of the British army, in 1808 and 1809.

      London Printed for John Booth by William Savage 1810 - Large paper copy (48 x 33.5 cm), two parts in one volume, folio, stipple engraved frontispiece, 53 hand-coloured aquatint plates of costumes and landscapes, including 13 plates of military costume, plates engraved by Clark, contemporary diced russia, covers ruled in gilt with geometric panel in gilt and blind, spine in six compartments, gilt lettered direct in second, broad gilt dividers ruled in gilt, all edges gilt, neat restoration to spine. A handsome large paper copy on fine thick paper of one of the best colour plate books on Spain. These special large paper copies were produced in small numbers, probably less than 100 copies, and were usually published atr around double the price of a standard copy. Bradford had served on Wellington's staff during the Peninsular Campaign and the book is Bradford's record of his time there. The British public were avid for information on Spain during and after the Campaign and this resulted in several attractive colour plate books. Many of these were primarily scenes of battles but the present work has a larger scope. Bibliographically complex, with several issues being published as demand increased, this copy conforms to Abbey's issue 2B with both title-pages dated 1810. Abbey Travel 135; Colas 421; Tooley 107.

        A picturesque voyage to India by the way of China.

      London: Longmans 1810 - First edition. Folio, 50 hand-coloured aquatint plates on thick paper with ruled and grey wash borders, contemporary red straight-grained morocco gilt, all edges gilt, spine worn, joints repaired, occasional light spotting, plates generally clean and fresh, a very good example. A well bound copy of the first edition of this illustrated voyage, which shows well the Daniells' love of river scenes "not just bare statements of fact but pleasant, well-balanced compositions" (Sutton). The pictures of Calcutta are particularlty noteworthy; "Calcutta from the Garden Reach" is one of the most famous of the Daniell pictures. It is one of the rare instances in which reference was made at a later date to a drawing by another artist, as certain of the buildings shown were not in existence during the Daniells' time in India. The penultimate plate shows the "Old Fort Gaut" containing the notorious "Black Hole of Calcutta". Other plates show Malaya, Java, Straits of Malacca, approximately 22 plates of China, and the remaining five of India, Bay of Bengal and two on the River Hoogly.

        Ueber die Verkrümmungen des menschlichen Körpers und eine rationelle und sichere Heilart derselben.

      Leipzig, Mitzky & Comp., 1810, 8, 4, XIV, 170 pp., mit 6 ganzseitigen Kupfertafeln, Halblederienband d.Zt. obere Ecke des Titel ergänzt Rücken erneuert feines und frisches Exemplar. Die erste fundierte orthopädische Monographie in DeutschlandErste Ausgabe, sehr selten. Ein Markstein der modernen Orthopädie! "Das erste wissenschaftliche orthopädische Lehrbuch der Welt" nennt J. Löffler das vorliegende Werk (In: Festschr. 25-Jahr-Feier Orthopäd. Klinik d. Univ. Leipzig). Johann Christian Gottfried Jörg (1779-1856) Professor der Medizin in Leipzig, gibt eine eingehende Beschreibung der Wirbelsäulenverbiegungen und trennt dabei Caries der Wirbel von den Skoliosen. Interessant sind seine frühen Erkenntnisse zum Schiefhals, zur spinalen Kinderlähmung, dem Klumpfuß, sowie das Kapitel "Von der Prognose u. Chur d. Verkrümmungen d. menschl. Körpers überhaupt". Die eindruckvollen Abbildungen körperlicher Deformitäten und der Geräte zu ihrer Behebung sind von J.F. Schröter gestochen. Bezeichnend ist der Apell Jörgs an die Ärzte, sie müßten sich der mit orthopädischen Leiden Behafteten annehmen und sie nicht den Händen der Scharfrichter, Hirten u. dergleichen überlassen. Das Jörg'sche Werk basiert auf einer dynamischen Krankheitsauffassung orthopädischer Leiden und beschrieb die Pathogenese und die konservative Therapie wesentlicher orthopädischer Erkrankungen, wie zum Beispiel des Schiefhalses, der Skoliose und des Klumpfußes. Da bei den noch formbaren Kindern eine Heilung durch konsequente und und langdauernde Therapie zu erwarten war, empfahl er die stationäre Behandlung und eine spätere konsequente Führung des Patienten in der ambulanten Phase.

        Rare Apple and Guava.

      Calcutta? 19th Century - A pair of watercolours on paper (watermarked 1810) depicting a guava and a "rare apple". Each image showing fruit on a branch and cross-section of fruit. Framed and glazed, overall size: 53 by 60 cm. A highly accomplished pair of botanical watercolours. Company painting' is a broad term for a variety of hybrid styles that developed as a result of European (especially British) influence on Indian artists from the early 18th to the 19th centuries. It evolved as a way of providing paintings that would appeal to European patrons who found the purely indigenous styles not to their taste. As many of these patrons worked for the various East India companies, the painting style came to be associated with the name, although it was in fact also used for paintings produced for local rulers and other Indian patrons. The subject matter of company paintings made for western patrons was often documentary rather than imaginative, and as a consequence, the Indian artists were required to adopt a more naturalistic approach to painting than had traditionally been usual. Calcutta was among the important early production centres, as the site of one of the oldest British trade houses. The city's most enthusiastic patrons were Lord Impey, chief justice of the High Court from 1777 to 1783, and the Marquess Wellesley, who served as governor-general from 1798 to 1805. Both had collected large menageries and hired artists to paint each of the birds and animals in them. A Company-established botanical garden in Calcutta then undertook a similar project for the samples of plant life it had collected. The present watercolours are possibly two of these.

        Versailles, Paris, and St Denis; or a series of views from drawings made on the spot . illustrative of the capital of France and the surrounding places. With an historical and descriptive account.

      London for W. Miller 1810 - First edition. folio (48.5 x 35 cm. approx.), [iv], 86 pp, including title page and list of plates. Forty fine hand-coloured aquatint plates, by Hill after Nattes (except for plate 29, by Cartwright after Nattes), plates on Whatman paper watermarked 1808, fine modern period style black straight-grained morocco richly gilt, first four leaves of text with neat restoration to fore-edge, 2 leaves with short tears repaired, an excellent example. An outstanding series of views of Versailles and Paris by one of the foremost drawing masters of his day. The work is characterized by many unusual subjects and interesting perspectives, and provides a fine record of Paris in the aftermath of the Revolution. It was produced in quite a small edition and has always been scarce and sought after. The Versailles plates form a beautiful set, not only of the park of Versailles, the Trianon, the famous machine at Marly, which pumped water for the fountains of Versailles, but also for the environs including St. Cloud. Many of the Parisian views show the influence of Piranesi in the choice of angles and also Nattes was taken with the bridges; 8 of the views are of bridges and a further 7 are scenes drawn from beneath them. John Claude Nattes (1765?-1839) was a topographical draughtsman and watercolour painter who travelled widely in England and France and a founder member of the Society of Painters in Watercolours. He trained as a pupil of Hugh Primrose Deane, the Irish landscape-painter. He evidently had a great affection for France in general and Paris in particular as at the end of 1822 he left England and almost certainly settled in France, where a number of collections of his drawings are located; his last known address was in St Germain. The main collections of his work are in the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Guildhall Library, London; the print room at Windsor Castle; the Bodleian Library, Oxford; and the National Library of Scotland. "Some of the finest aquatint plates in existence are those done from the drawings of John Claude Nattes . The Views of Versailles, Paris, St Denis are well known as fine and attractive" (Prideaux, p. 274). Published during the time of the Napoleonic War, very few English people would have travelled in France at this time. This probably accounts for the small edition and scarcity of the work. Abbey, Travel, 103. Prideaux p. 346. Tooley 342 (text in French). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

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. There are a few further notes in the text. The majority of them 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.

The two parted ways in 1813, and Gall completed the last two volumes on his own. The work was issued with the text and atlas of plates in folio. The text volumes were also reset in quarto format and issued with the folio atlas. The second edition of the text (6 vols. 1822-1825) does not contain the atlas of plates." Norman"Galls hirnanatomische Leistungen sind von seinen Zeitgenossen, auch von seinen Gegnern wie Flourens, stets anerkannt worden. Der Hallenser Kliniker Johann Christian Reil, einer der besten Hirnanatomen seiner Zeit, stellte bewundernd fest: 'Ich habe bei den anatomischen Demonstrationen des Gehirns durch Gall mehr gesehen, als ich mir vorstellte, dass ein Mann in einem langen Leben entdecken könnte'. In der Tat besaß Gall eine außerordentliche Geschicklichkeit des Sezierens. Aber nicht auf diese kam es an, vielmehr auf eine neue Weise anatomischen Sehens. Während seine Vorgänger mit wenigen Ausnahmen seit Vesal das Gehirn wie einen Käse in einzelne Stücke schnitten und damit jede Möglichkeit der Einsicht in den Zusammenhang der Strukturen zerstörten, schritt Gall von unten nach oben vor, indem er vorsichtig vom Rückenmark aus den Verlauf der einzelnen Faserzüge bis zur Rinde verfolgte." "Durch diese vergleichend-anatomische Betrachtungsweise war Gall imstande, die zwei Grundelemente des Nervensystems zu bestimmen, die graue und die weiße Substanz. Bisher hatte man die Rinde (cortex) buchstäblich als eine das Gehirn umhüllende Rinde aufgefasst. Es bedeutete einen eminenten Fortschritt, dass Gall zeigte, dass sich diese Rinde, die graue Substanz, nicht nur auf das Gehirn und Kleinhirn erstreckte, sondern dass sie sich ebenso im Rücken- und verlängerten Mark, an den Seiten des 4.Ventrikels, in den Spinalganglien, den Hirnnerven und den sympathischen Ganglien nachweisen ließ. Gall hat sie als erster schlechtweg als matrix nervorum angesprochen, von der alle Nerven entspringen und Nahrung erhalten...""Diese Vorstellungsweise erwies sich besonders zielführend bei der Erforschung der sogenannten Hirnnerven. Bisher hatte man geglaubt, dass sie sich vom Hirn herleiten. Gall und Spurzheim wiesen den Ursprung des 1.,2.,3.,4.,5.,6.,7. und 8. Nerven in den Kernen der grauen Substanz des verlängerten Markes nach und betrachteten jeden Hirnnerven als ein System für sich.""Weiteres schloss diese Pluralitätsvorstellung die Annahme einer Seele mit spezifischen Sitz ebenso wie jene eines sensorium commune aus. Vielmehr führte sie Gall dazu, nach intracerebralen Verbindungsmöglichkeiten zwischen den einzelnen Formationen zu suchen. Der Nachweis der auseinanderfahrenden (divergentes, sortantes fibres) sowie der zurücktretenden (rentrantes) Fasern, die einigermassen unseren Projektions- bzw. Kommissurenfasern sowie den Assoziationsfasern entsprechen, war das Ergebnis dieses Bemühens.""Die fibrilläre Struktur der weissen Substanz und ihrer Leitungsfunktionen hat Gall eindeutig nachgewiesen, ebenso wie er endgültig die Kreuzung der Pyramidenbahn beschrieb und sie bis zum Cortex verfolgte. Lanteri-Laura hat in diesem Zusammenhang hervorgehoben, dass es erstmals Gall war, der Klarheit in den Aufbau der Hemisphären brachte, dem Cortex seine hegemoniale Stellung zuwies und die Ventrikel in ihrem bis jetzt gehaltenen Galenischen Herrschaftsanspruch entthronte, namentlich des Stirnhirns, das artenspezifische Charakteristikum des Homo sapiens erkannte. So vollzog sich in der Gallschen Hirnanatomie eine grundsätzliche Neubewertung des Gehirns bzw. des Nervensystems. Die Existenz von morphologischen verschiedenen Hirnfeldern nachzuweisen, die seinen physiologischen Thesen hätten entsprechen können, blieb jedoch Gall versagt." Erna Lesky, Franz Josef Gall (1758-1828), Naturforscher und Anthropologe, pp.17-19."Gall also revolutionized brain dissection techniques by gently separating the structures with a blunt instrument instead of slicing them with a sharp instrument - a method that allowed him to make anatomical observations of fundamental importance. 'Gall and Spurzheim established the fact that the white matter of the brain consists of nerve fibers and that the gray matter of the cerebral cortex represents the organs of mental activity. They were the first to demonstrate that the trigeminal nerve was not merely attached to the pons, but that it sends its root fibres as far down as the inferior olive in the medulla. In addition, they confirmed once and forever the medullary decussation of the pyramids".

        (Seventeen watercolor costume designs)

      1810. A collection of seventeen hand-drawn watercolor costume designs for a paper doll, plus one additional unfinished design in pencil. Each costume, complete with headpieces, wigs, and other accessories, is well designed and skillfully colored, giving this handmade set a polished and professional look. The costumes are laid into a notebook, with the title of each design and the number of pieces carefully inked onto the pages. Covering a wide range of activities and locales, the sets are: a Spartan virgin, a lady in a walking dress, a belle in the year 1775, a Florentine lady in a Carnival dress, a Quaker, Countess Hamilton in Charles's reign, a Dominican nun, a Florentine peasant, a Christian woman of Smyrna, a Neapolitan peasant, a peasant near the sea of Marmora, a Vestal virgin, a lady in the riding dress of the year 1780, a ballad singer, a lady in a ball dress, an Otaheitan girl, a woman of Brixen, and a lady in a riding habit. The unfinished costume, which is sketched in pencil and cut out, shows a woman in trousers, a long military-style coat, and a top hat. There is also an extravagantly-adorned bonnet that may have been the start of another outfit, since it does not seem to match the other unfinished pieces. There is no doll, but that is likely because the set remains unfinished; the presence of an unfinished costume as well as the lack of tabs on the costume pieces suggests that the project was never completed. The notebook is red with gold trim and has holes in the front and the back cover for green cloth ties, cleverly secured by red heart-shaped cutouts inside the covers. Two hand-decorated paper labels adorn the notebook. On the back, the initials F.C. are surrounded by a laurel wreath. The front has a handwritten poem explaining that the changeability of woman, of which men so often complain, comes only from a "pure wish to please." Below the poem, in bold capitals, is the phrase "ECCE SIGNUM!" which means, "Here is the proof." The final page of the notebook is folded such that it could serve as a holding place for loose pieces, though one side is now detached. Cover worn, as expected, and the ties and sections of trim are missing. The pages, however, are clean and sound, and the costume designs are in fine condition.

This was the first European study of the origins and history of Wahabism. It was plagiarised by Jean Baptiste Rousseau in his Description du Pachalik. of 1809. In the preface of this expanded version of his original article Corancez puts the record straight. In the preface to the recent translation of the work, the late Professor R.M. Burrell comments that ?Corancez was a man with considerable powers of observation and reflection. He was prepared to ask profound and difficult questions about the Middle Eastern society in which he lived? The author notes with prescience ?Ces Arabes paroissent destinés à jouer un grand rÔle dans l'histoire.? The first two chapters give details of the conversion of Mohammed ibn Saoud, but most of the work is taken up with material concerning the years 1798 to 1809, beginning with the first Ottoman campaign against the stronghold of Dereyah and ending with their operations against Muscat and Ras al-Kaima. The author adds a further two chapters firstly his reflections on the emergence of an ?idée du caractère national? and secondly notes on Wahhabi customs. As Burrell comments ?the final merits - and challenges - of this book are. [that] Conancez was prepared to reflect upon a range of issues which remain relevant and controversial, for many people in the Middle East today. These include the nature of Islam and its apparent resistance to self-doubt and the challenge of change, the complex attitude adopted by Muslims to Christians and Jews, the status of the Prophet Mohammed within Islam, the reasons for the enduring nature of despotic rule in the Middle East, the significance of the different status afforded to men and women.?

        Naufrage de MM. de Laborde sur les canots de La Peyrouse au port des François dans la Californie. Dédié à Monsieur Alexandre de Laborde leur frère

      1810 - Exceptional engraving showing the shipwreck off the coast of Alaska during the La Perouse expedition. [1810]. Paris. Ostervald l’aine, for Louis Prot and Michel Dissard. Copper engraving. (370 x 516 mm). Excellent condition. 4,500 $ A remarkable scene after a painting of Louis-Philippe Crepin, representing the shipwreck of Edouard and Ange de Laborde on 13 July 1786, off the coast of Alaska, during the expedition of La Perouse, one of the most significant journeys of exploration conducted by the French in the 18th century. The expedition took place onboard the Boussole and the Astrolabe, it´s goal was to explore the Pacific and assess the Spanish settlement in California; whilst en route to Kamchatka, La Perouse was the first to safely navigate the Japan Sea. After passing through Cape Horn, the expedition sailed towards the Northwest of America, arriving to the coast of Alaska in July 1786, discovering a magnificent bay dominated by mountains and surrounded by glaciars, which he goes on to name Port-des-Français, today Lituya Bay, staying there for almost a month. The bay was rich in natural resources, and was frequented by the Amerindian population of the area, with whom the French conducted trade on several occasions; La Perouse soon envisioned the potential for the fur trade. The subject of this scene is a dramatic episode occurred on 13 July 1786, when La Perouse sent a detachment of officers to sound the bay in three small vessels (two biscayennes and a small canoe); despite his recommendations for caution, Lieutenant Descure ventured too close to the pass, his biscayenne was engulfed by the tide, the second biscayenne –which had the Laborde brothers on board- suffered the same fate when attempting to rescue the first one, only the small canoe escaped, due probably to it´s stability. In all, 21 sailors perished in the shipwreck. Dedicated to the brother of the Laborde brothers, who died in the shipwreck, Alexandre de Laborde, author of several works on France, Spain, and Austria. At the bottom of the engraving, there is a narrative of what occurred in the shipwreck. The author, Louis-Philippe Crepin, was a pupil of Joseph Vernet and Hubert Robert, he also authored the painting portraying Dumont D´Urville and the sailors of the corvette Astrolabe paying homage at the La Perouse memorial on the island of Vanikoro. Extremely rare, both in the market and institutionally; we locate copies at Yale and the California State Library in the United States, and one in France. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Autograph Letter Signed, in envelope addressed to "The Rev'd Mr. Rafles"

      1810 - Two pages (both sides of one leaf), folded into thirds to fit inside a handwritten folded envelope (with red wax seal). "Castle Street [Edinburgh], Friday." The letter reads:~Sir~I am honoured with your card & much obliged by the polite [----------?] which it contains and am very happy you have found your journey to Scotland pleasant notwithstanding the weather having been unfavourable.~I presume Mr. Grahame after whom you enquire is the same young gentleman who is now residing in the family of my friend & kinsman Mr. Scott of Harden. If I am right in my conjecture his address is Mertoun House By St. Boswells. Mr. Scott's seat is about six miles from Kelso & five from Milburn[?]. I shall be happy if you find this information useful & am Sir~Your obliged & humble Servant~Walter Scott.~We cannot identify the recipient other than by his name and address on the envelope -- "The Rev'd Mr Rafles [Rufles?] | Mr Gouldris[?] | 7 St. James Square". All we can infer about the recipient is that he resided at a very fashionable address in London, and that apparently he and Scott had never met. Clearly the recipient had left his calling card, and enquired for the address of a Mr. Grahame -- who it appears was at Mertoun House (by the River Tweed), which had been in the Scott family for about a century; a century later, it would be sold to the Egerton family, for whom Mertoun House would become the home of the Duke of Sutherland.~The year of this letter is unspecified, but we can be certain only that it was between 1798 and 1826: until his marriage in late 1797 Walter Scott lived with his parents at 25 George Street; after the marriage he and Charlotte lived briefly at 50 George Street, and then in Autumn 1798 they moved to 10 Castle Street (where, in 1798 and in 1801, their two children were born); and shortly after the latter birth they moved to more permanent lodgings at 39 South Castle Street -- until 1824, by which time Scott built his estate Abbotsford -- on the River Tweed. (Two years later, he was forced to sell the South Castle Street house because of the failure of the Ballantyne publishing company). This letter says only "Castle Street," but that does not necessarily mean 10 Castle Street -- since it is known, from other letters, that Scott would write "Castle Street" to refer to his address at 39 South Castle Street, as well.~The letter is in very good condition (folded into thirds, as originally mailed; one vertical quarter of the letter is a little browned).
