        Inventario e Stima della Libreria Riccardi. Manoscritti e Edizioni del Secolo XV.

      1 p.l., 225, [3] (blank), xviii, [1] pp. Large 4to, early 20th-cent. half-calf & marbled boards, spine gilt, red leather lettering piece on spine, entirely uncut. Florence: 1810. The collections of early books, manuscripts, and works of art in the Biblioteca Riccardiana of Florence were begun in the 16th century by Riccardo Romolo Riccardi. In the last decades of the 17th century it was significantly enlarged by Francesco Riccardi, partially as a result of the dowry of his wife, Cassandra Capponi. Her father Vincenzio, an erudite and famous man of letters and science closely connected with the circle of Galileo, had left his daughter part of his extensive library of scientific and philosophical texts. The collections were housed in the magnificent palazzo in Via Larga (today Via Cavour), which was purchased from the Medicis in 1659, and is today known as the Palazzo Medici Riccardi. The Riccardi family was unusual in that they allowed the public to use the library throughout most of the 18th century. In the latter part of the 18th century the family's fortunes began their decline and the Riccardis were forced to consider selling the collections. The present catalogue was prepared as an inventory in preparation for the sale by auction starting in July 1811. We learn from the "Manifeste" at the beginning of the catalogue the collections had been appraised and catalogues were soon to be available throughout Europe (Renouard in Paris, Pasquali in Venice, Orell and Dueli in Zurich, Pachoud in Geneva, etc.). After considerable negotiations, the City Council of Florence purchased the collections and palace in 1813. This inventory offers a detailed view of the 3590 early manuscripts, 617 incunabula, 18,257 other printed books, and the family's large and important collections of medals, bronzes, engraved gems, cameos, porcelains, and crystals. The library was appraised at 156,151 lire Toscane. Fine copy. ❧ Ottino-Fumagalli 2938. .

        A Picturesque Voyage to India; by the way of China.

      London: for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and William Daniell,, 1810. Folio (335 x 248 mm). Mid-20th-century dark blue crushed full morocco, flat bands to spine forming compartments, second and fourth lettered in gilt, marbled edges and endpapers, turn-ins ruled in blind. 50 hand-coloured aquatint plates by Thomas and William Daniell, on thick paper, mounted on guards, each with accompanying text (watermarked 1808), bound horizontally as usual. Inner hinges reinforced, a small number of guards judiciously repaired along gutter, first and last few plates slightly marked, occasional mild soiling otherwise largely restricted to margins and text-leaves, short closed tear to bottom edge of text-leaf of Chinese Husbandman plate (22). A very good copy. First edition of "the finest illustrated work ever published on India" (Tooley). Originally issued in ten parts, "the aquatints of India by Thomas and William Daniell have been continuously popular ever since their publication between 1795 and 1810 ? A Picturesque Voyage consisted of 50 aquatints depicting the places visited by the artists on their various journeys to and from China and to India. Five views show their approach to Calcutta and the city itself. The publication of these aquatints had been a mammoth task. The two artists prepared almost all the plates themselves. [William came to be regarded as] one of the greatest aquatinters of the 19th century ? The Daniells' Indian aquatints soon made an impact on the British public and on British culture at a number of different levels" (Archer). "One of a series of books that are surely among the most beautiful things ever made" (IPEX Catalogue of Exhibitions of British Coloured Books 1738-1898).

VG+. "Two different state copies on sale together. Each copy has the full 12 chalcographic plates numbered Lámª 1ª to Lamª 12ª. First copy: Complete series; leaves 368x267 mm.; plate mark 298x252 mm.; untrimmed leaves, very slight dusting, maintaining the generous original margins; without provenance data. Second copy: Complete series; plate leaves cut in half, following the line arranged to this end, making up a bound booklet of 24 leaves in landscape format. Bound in low grain geltex type material, scarlet colour, very cleanly elaborated during the decades of the 1970s or 1980s; slightly short margins in leaves and with minor foxing; without provenance data.- // Each engraving includes 24 vignettes in the same plate, 12 of illustration and text, and 12 of explanatory text, narrating the history of Spain from Tubal to the kingdom of Phillip V. The format of the engravings was designed for printing on light cards, so that each illustration and its corresponding explanatory text could be cut and made from the wrappers of the booklets of cigarette paper(1). These began being illustrated to promote the sale of certain wrappers over others and the better fortune of some of these stories meant that on occasion, these were also printed on better quality paper, as happens to be the case of this series, to be cut and bound in the format of an illustration book. We offer two copies of this print on better quality paper, one in each variant: the complete series in its original format and size, and another, also complete, bound in the planned booklet format. We have only found a copy of the complete series of these engravings in Spanish libraries, although these have been trimmed and cut in a landscape format of 24 leaves, without binding, in the collection of the University of Barcelona, where it has been digitalized and included in 'Memòria Digital de Catalunya' [ http://mdc.cbuc.cat/cdm/singleitem/collection/gravatsBRUB/id/1197 ]. Another copy, trimmed in the same manner as Barcelona University s copy, was exhibited in the summer 2014 in an exhibition of ephemeral materials in the library of the University of Castilla-La Mancha, but it belongs to a private collection. Finally, the Maritime Museum of Barcelona also has a number of the engravings, but presented as individual vignettes (col. grabados inéditos, i.e., 17518). The Library of the University of Barcelona dates the engraving back to somewhere between 1800 and 1802, although in our opinion they are from the decade beginning in 1810.- // Rafael León:  Papel de fumar , Revista de folklore 10 (1989) 102: 199-209."

        A New Map of Mexico and Adjacent Provinces Compiled from Original Documents

      1810 - Arrowsmith's landmark map of Texas, Upper California and the Southwest. 1810. London. (1320 mm x 1650 mm; 52 x 65 inches). Dissected and laid on linen, preserving the original chemise case; light spotting, overall fine. A fine example of the first edition of Arrowsmith's landmark map of Texas, Upper California and the Southwest, perhaps the single most important 19th Century mapping of the Southwestern part of North America prior to its independence. Arrowsmith's map was the first to report the discoveries of Pike and Humboldt, having been issued prior to the official accounts of these two explorers. While the map draws from the work of Humboldt extensively (evidenced by Humboldt´s accusation of plagiarism), the map shows substantial improvements over the Humboldt map in several areas. Arrowsmith drew on Vancouver's charts for his treatment of the California Coastline (including the tracks of Vancouver's voyage on the California Coast on a daily basis), Pike's accounts for the mapping of Texas and the Brazos and Guadalupe River regions and other rivers explored by Pike, and Humboldt's treatment of the Rocky Mountain regions and the Gulf Coast. Arrowsmith also shows Father Escalante's route in detail and is the first to confirm that the "Nepestle River" first reached by the Juan de Archuleta Expedition between 1664 and 1680 was in fact the Arkansas River. The map also provides an interesting snapshot of the Lower Missouri River, Kansas River, and Arkansas River valleys, prior to the reports of Stephen Long and other American explorer's in the region. There are a number of annotations throughout the map providing further information on the exploration and mapping of the region. In describing the map, Martin & Marin note: Relying on information provided to him by the Hudson’s Bay Company, [Arrowsmith] added significant details in the Northwest, and his depiction of the California coast was probably taken from the British explorer Vancouver’s own charts. In the Texas area [Arrowsmith] undoubtedly used Pike’s rendition of the rivers . . . while he followed Humboldt in tracing the coast from the Spanish Hydrographic Office chart . . . . By combining the best parts of Humboldt’s and Pike’s maps and avoiding their errors, and by adding his own new information, Arrowsmith contributed a significantly improved depiction of the region” The present example is the first state of the map, showing the boundary of Mexico and the United States at the Mermento River in Louisiana, following the River. While Streeter referred to this edition as the second edition of the map, Rumsey identifies this edition as the first edition, with the Streeter's first state actually being the last edition, published circa 1820. The confusion lies in the fact that Streeter's first edition is also dated 1810 and shows Arrowsmith as "Hydrographer to his Majesty." All other editions reference Arrowsmith as Hydrographer to the Prince of Wales, with the second, third and fourth editions including a change in the title noting that each is corrected to 1815, 1816 and 1817 respectively. Streeter apparently assumed that this meant the "Hydrographer to the King State" was the first edition, but Rumsey correctly notes that Streeter's first edition is the only one to show the Adams Onis Treaty Boundary of 1819 and that it appears in the Atlas to Thompson's Alcedo, first published in 1825. Arrowsmith's map of Mexico is regarded as perhaps the single most influential of all regional maps from this time period, a landmark in the Cartographic History of Texas and the Southwest, and a cornerstone map in American Cartographic History. Truly exceptional copy of the map, with fine fresh color and was likely unopened and virtually untouched for nearly 200 years. Martin & Martin 25, Streeter 1046, Wheat 295.

        THE DIER'S ASSISTANT IN THE ART OF DYING WOOL AND WOOLLEN GOODS Extracted from the Philosophical and Chymical Works of Those Most Eminent Authors Ferguson, Dufay, Hellot, Geoffery, Colbert, and That Reputale French Dier Mons. De Julienne. Translated from the French with Additions and Practical Experiments by James Hai

      Philadelphia, PA: James Humphreys, 1810. FIRST U.S. EDITION. Leather_bound. Very Good. First translated into English and published in Leeds in 1778, this is the first U.S. printing of this very popular book on the dier's craft. Three years later an edition was issued in Poughkeepsie, NY. Full period calf, measuring 7 3/8 x 4 1/2. Spine gilt-lettered, and double-ruled into five sections, the top section (only) with an extra set of decorative gilt lines. Text block darkened, with only occasional spots of foxing throughout. Wear and scuffing to extremities, but still solidly bound, with no obvious signs of repair. Mr. Haigh prefaces by touching on the laying-out, equipping and provisioning of a die-house, as well as the nature of the primary colours, going on to note that "all lasting colours are called colours of the great, and the others of the lesser die.". In keeping, Haigh has divided his compendium of dier's wisdom into three parts The first part comprises 216 pp in 29 chapters; Part II, comprising 11 chapters and t50 pp. . commences with "On the Dieing of Wool by the Lesser Die"; Part III, begins on p. 267, being entitled "Additional Articles", starts with a new Chapter I and disusses as die agents: flowers, fruits, leaves, madder, fustic, nephritic wood, logwood, the preparation of Prussian Blue, Alkanet-Root, Alum and Verdigris. The book concludes with a 17 pp. postscript, complete with its own preface, entitled: "A Hint to the Diers and Cloth-Makers, and Well Worth The Notice of The Merchant". The very last paragraph of the book reads: "The reader may be assured that what is here recited, is purely the result of the author's own experience (not theory), and part of the effects of many years study." A particularly detailed sample of the text runs: "...When this preparation is made, it is poured into a vessel filled with 250 quarts of urine; it matters not whether it be fresh or stale...the urine cast up a thick scum which was taken up with a broom and cast out of the copper. It was thus scummed at different times, till there remained a white and light scum..." (P. 61)

The report of the first, and certainly one of the most important, exploration narratives of the Southwest. Pike's narrative includes his account of his travels to explore the headwaters of the Arkansas and Red Rivers, as well as his earlier journey to the sources of the Mississippi River. He also relates his visit to the Spanish settlements in New Mexico. Along with the writings of Lewis & Clark, Pike's ACCOUNT must stand as the most important early work on western exploration. The maps, which Wheat considers "milestones in the mapping of the American west," are the first to show geographic knowledge of the area based upon first-hand explorations.

        A Concise Account of the Origin and Progress of the Rocket System. With a View of the apparent Advantages both as to the Effect produced, and comparative Saving of Expence, arising from the peculiar Facilities of Application which it possesses, as well for Naval as Military Purposes.

      3 p.l., 32, [1] pp. 4to, attractive antique diced half-russia & marbled boards, spine gilt. London: J. Whiting, 1810. Second edition, enlarged (1st ed.: 1807). Congreve (1772-1828), is best known for creating the first rocket weapons system and initiating the modern processes of research and development in rocketry. His greatest interest was in "improving and perfecting the rocket as a military weapon. England subsequently adopted 'Congreve rockets,' which were used with great success against the French at Boulogne, Copenhagen, Leipzig, and elsewhere. They were copied by most European armies by 1830."-D.S.B., III, p. 388. In the present work, Congreve discusses the possibilities which rockets had for military operations. He does not describe the actual rocket -- this secret he guarded zealously. This edition contains for the first time a "Postscript" dated 10 April 1810 which prints various favorable accounts by military men who had witnessed the rockets used in Belgium.

        Caroli a Linné species plantarum curante. Car. Ludw. Willdenow, tomus 5. Filices

      1810 - in-4 [190 x 240 mm], [52] , 1810, , in-4 [190 x 240 mm], [52] feuillets manuscrits à l'encre brune, broché, Copie manuscrite anonyme du volume de Willdenow concernant les fougères. Willdenow (1765-1812), botaniste et pharmacien, fut directeur du jardin botanique de Berlin de 1801 jusqu'à sa mort. Il augmenta la quatrième édition du Species plantarum de Linné, qui fut publiée à Berlin, de 1797 à 1830, en 6 volumes in-8. Willdenow a achevé la révision du Species en 1810, en y ajoutant un cinquième volume consacré aux fougères (filices). "Cette révision repose en majeure partie sur l'étude des collections personnelles de l'auteur et décrit 353 genres nouveaux et 4600 espèces nouvelles. Ce livre n'a plus rien de commun avec le Species plantarum originel de Linné, exceptions faites du titre et de la méthode suivie" (De Wit & Baudière, Histoire du développement de la biologie, t.3, p.154). Ce manuscrit, sous-titré Filices, constitue le début du tome 5 (1ère partie) de cette quatrième édition. Il s'arrête à l'aspidium pennigerum (n° 66 des aspidia), ce qui correspond à la page 245 du volume imprimé (Berlin, Nauck, 1810). La 2e partie du t. 5 fut publiée en 1830 par Schwaegrichen. Un deuxième cahier devait constituer la fin de la première partie du t. 5. La comparaison de ce manuscrit, non signé, avec le manuscrit 1448 de la bibliothèque du Muséum national d'histoire naturelle, intitulé Observations sur le genre dufourea par C.-L. Willdenow, lui aussi non signé, ne nous pas a permis d'établir s'il s'était de la main de l'auteur. En effet, ces deux manuscrits, qui sont d'une main différente, sont probablement tous les deux des copies des volumes de Willdenow. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Necessaries required for the Equipment of a Cadet.

      London: Cox and Son, Printers [for the Honourable East India Company],, c.1810. Small (125 × 86 mm) letterpress aide memoire on light card stock, printed both sides. Very good indeed. A remarkable survival, no other copy traced institutionally or commercially. Fascinating "shopping list" of essentials for a cadet shipping out for India. In Charles James's authoritative Regimental Companion of 1811, this card is specifically referred to in the section setting out "Preparatory Instructions to Persons who may be nominated Cadets in the Service of the Honorable East-India Company": "Upon the Cadet being approved by the Committee of Shipping he will be furnished with a card of necessaries for his equipment, a list of the Shipping, and the court's regulations as to the sums to be paid for accommodation on board ship" (p.103); and a slightly variant list of these "necessaries" is provided under the heading of "List of Necessaries that are absolutely required for the Equipment of a Cadet going out to India" (pp.105-6). The extent of the list gives a good sense of just how large the two trunks included on the list must have been, and James stresses that "the cadet's baggage is limited to a chest of necessaries, a trunk of necessaries, a liquor case, a hamper of wine, a cot and bedding" (p.105): "Â… 36 Callico Shirts, of which 6 to be Night Shirts, 12 Night Caps, 12 White Neck Handkerchiefs Â… 12 Pair Thin Breeches Â… 24 Pair Cotton Stockings Â… Cloth for complete Suit of Uniform, or two, as convenient, to make up in India Â… 12 Pounds of Soap, 6 Pounds of Wax Candles, 1 Flat Candlestick, &c., 1 Small Looking Glass Â… 14 pounds of Sugar in a Cannister Â…". The printer Edward Cox's workshop was located on Great Queen Street between 1790-1824, his son joined as a partner in 1799, and the firm became associated with East India House in 1809, which would be just about the time that this aide memoire was produced (see Todd's Directory of Printers, p.48). An official document of the East India Company, A part of the formal induction process, this pocket-sized card would have been presented to every one of the thousands of HEIC cadets who embarked for India - in 1806 the combined European strength of the three presidential armies was recorded as 24,500 (Imperial Gazetteer of India vol. IV 1907, p. 335) - yet this appears to be the only recorded survival. Attractive, and highly evocative.

        Panorama van Arnhem - Julius Gottheil, 1854.

      "Panorama van Arnhem genomen van het Hòtel de Belle-Vue' Lithografie vervaardigd door G.J. Thieme naar een tekening van Julius Gottheil (1810-1864), uitgegeven rond 1854 door P. Klinkenberg. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm.: 37 x 73 cm.We zien Arnhem vanaf het dak van Hotel Bellevue aan de Utrechtseweg. Het hotel brandde af in 1908, tegenwoordig biedt een kantoorgebouw met diezelfde naam vanaf die plek uitzicht op stad.Zes jaar nadat de eerste spoorlijn in Nederland, van Amsterdam naar Haarlem in 1839, was geopend, bereikte de ijzeren spoorweg Arnhem. De Rhijnspoorweg verbond Arnhem via Utrecht met de hoofdstad van ons land. Daarmee was een snelle, directe verbinding tussen Arnhem en het westen van het land gerealiseerd. De opening van de spoorlijn op 14 mei 1845, waarvoor koning Willem II zich wegens 'keelpijn" had afgemeld, ging gepaard met de ingebruikname van een stationsgebouw. Het gebouw had terrassen op de eerste verdieping met uitzicht op Sonsbeek en de Betuwe. Het gebouw was al snel te klein en in 1869 werd een robuust bakstenen pand het nieuwe onderkomen.De stoomtrein stelde mensen uit het westen in staat snel het groene en villarijke Arnhem te bereiken. Rechts naast de spoorlijn zijn grafzerken te zien van de voormalige Joodse begraafplaats 'De Valk" (geruimd in 1966). Schuin daarachter de hooiopslag voor de paarden van de soldaten van de Willemskazerne. De rokende schoorsteen naast molen 'De Harmonie" (gesloopt in 1855) is van de metaalgieterij van Willem Thomassen.In het midden van de stad zien we de Sint-Eusebiuskerk en op de achtergrond de Walburgiskerk. Op de fundamenten van de stadsmuur werden vanaf 1829 huizen gebouwd. Het zijn in de eerste jaren vooral Arnhemse handelaars en bankiers die nieuwe huizen laten bouwen op geslechte vestingwerken. Zij beschikten over financiële armslag door de groei van de overslaghandel over de Rijn met Duitsland en de aanleg van verharde rijksstraatwegen naar het Veluwse achterland. Achter hun stadspaleizen stonden nog de armoedigste krotwoningen stonden, verborgen 'zoodat het oog van de vreemdeling niet langer onaangenaam getroffen worde".Het spoornet rond Arnhem groeide snel. In 1856 werd de verlenging naar Emmerik, via Zevenaar, geopend en weer negen jaar later vond de opening plaats van de spoorweg naar Zutphen. In 1879 bereikt de spoorlijn ook Nijmegen.Prijs: € 3.450,- (incl. lijst).

        The compleat angler, being a discourse of Fish and Fishing. For more info about this item, see our RARE FISH BOOKS site.

      - London: Printed for S. Bagster, in the Strand, 1810. 12 mo (13 x 17 cm). Pagination summary: [18], [1]-215, [216-217] 218-246 and 6 fish engravings to text. The title-page is followed by the title-page of the 1653 edition with an engraved cartouche. Bound in contemporary full calf, gilt tooled spine, light rubbing to edges. A good tight copy, very scarce in this condition.The cartouch of the 1653 edition, this is the first edition, is peculiar and may be understood as a message avant la lettre. The artist arranged 4 dolphins and 2 bunches of fish around a plaque on which an advertisment is inscribed. It is a preludium to a bible text, John xxi, 3, inviting the disciples and probably also the reader to go a fishing. The combination of such a commendatory text and an appealing image is quite unique in seventeenth-century painting and drawing. There are six silver engravings of a trout, a pike, a carp, a tench, a perch and a barbel in the text printed on leaves which are on heavier paper and tipped in. There are two plates of music, the second printed upside down, complete and similar to as Coigney No 20. At the foot of the verso of the title-page is the printer¿s imprint ¿Printed by Mercier and Chervet, Bartholomew Close, London¿ and it also appears at the foot of page 246. See our hand-coloured copy of the 1810 edition as well. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Vermutlich ist das Blatt die Vorzeichnung zu einem geplanten Gemälde oder Aquarell. - Von Interesse sind die topographischen Beschriftungen im Blatt. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 0
