        A Delineation of the Strata of Derbyshire, forming the surface from Bolsover in the east to Buxton in the west, by a plate, designed from a tablet, composed of the specimens of each stratum within the above line, with an explanatory account of the same; together with a description of the fossils found in these strata; and also of the nature and quality of the respective soils.

      FIRST EDITION. One of the first English books to illustrate geological strata by the use of a section.“In 1811 and 1813 White Watson published two interesting little books describing Derbyshire strata, with a section across them. The section is nearly two feet long; the general broad anticlinal structure is well shown, but the vertical scale is so enormously exaggerated as to distort the natural arrangement. Ford (1960) [‘White Watson (1760â€"1835) and his geological sections’ in Proc. Geol. Ass., 71, 346â€"363] has recently thrown a flood of light on Watson and his work” (Challinor, p. 92).The section was originally made in 1794 as a tablet using specimens of the rocks themselves. “It was described briefly in an explanatory leaflet published at Bakewell in 1794, revised 1797, and much more fully in the [present] work of 1811, which is an interesting contribution to early stratigraphical literature” (Edwards, The early history of palaeontology, p. 54).This copy is bound with Rev. Samuel Pegge’s Sketch of the history of Bolsover and Peak Castles, in the county of Derby (1785), and Charles Sylvester’s The philosophy of domestic economy (1819), on the pioneering design of the Derbyshire Infirmary. This latter work is dedicated to William Strutt, who designed the heating and ventilating system for the Infirmary, and whose son Edward became Lord Belper. This is probably therefore the dedicatee’s own copy.4to, pp. viii, 1 leaf (dedication), pp. iii, 72, 1 leaf (”Advertisement”), folding frontispiece of the geological section, 1 engraved plate. Gathering E misbound after gathering F. Bound with two other works (see below) in near-contemporary purple calf, sides panelled in blind and gilt, spine gilt (surface slightly rubbed), marbled edges and endpapers, a lovely copy. Armorial Belper bookplate (see below).

        Broadside, begins: Sabed: que ha llegado ? nuestras manos un proclama del rebelde Cura de Dolores que se titula: 'Manifiesto, que el Se?or Don Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla::::,, [sic] haze al Pueblo

      Mexico: no publisher/printer Folio (43.4 cm; 17.125"). [1] p.. 26 January 1811 Approximately two months prior to Father Hidalgo's capture by the Royal Forces, the Holy Office issued this decree condemning a publication of the Father of Mexican Independence as seditious, Lutheran, and anti-Catholic. Other writings circulating in manuscript are also condemned: One beginning, "Hemos llegado a la epoca" and ending, "De una Patriota de Lagos" and another beginning, "Es posible. Americanos!" and ending, "ser? gratificado con quinientos pesos." Copies of each were burned by the public executioner and all citizens are warned of the penalties — excommunication and fines — for owning or reading these writings, or failing to denounce those who do.Printed on two sheets precisely glued together to form a seamless whole, in double-column format and with the woodcut seal of the Inquisition in the lower right corner of the lower edge.Garritz located only the copy in the Biblioteca Nacional and WorldCat locates only seven U.S. institutions holding copies. Old folds; a few small wormholes touching or costing a very few letters and one larger hole costing five letters, but not impeding reading sense. Slight discoloration along the area where the two sheets are pasted together and at points on vertical fold.

        ALS to Princess de Salm-Dyck... ALS to Princess de Salm-Dyck regarding his continuing work on the Malay dictionary and articles relating to the Baudin voyage

      Paris: June, 1811. 4 pp. autograph letter signed Leschenault, 22 x 17.5 cm., neat and legible; very good. Why won't the French Ministry give me a Merino? A second letter from Leschenault to his friend the Princess Constance de Salm-Dyck, discussing in more detail his scientific projects and giving a real insight into his social environment, not least for his joking ambition to become a professor because the French Ministry persist in denying him the Merino sheep he is keen to study.The letter begins with Leschenault's gracious compliments on Salm-Dyck's poetry, commenting that he had rushed around to his bookseller Contraba to get a review by one Puguiet in the Courrier de l'Europe, but had been disappointed to find it sold out. He goes on to indulge his taste for a bit of enigmatic gossip about another lady, before giving a more substantial account of his work on the Malay dictionary, warmly mentioning the support he has received from his good friend, the famous orientalist Louis-Mathieu Langlès (interestingly, in the French national archives are some letters from Langlès also to Salm-Dyck, where he confirms the aid given and how absorbed Leschenault was by his Malay language project). Leschenault also mentions that the project has had some help from the important Parisian publisher Didot.Leschenault also mentions and recommends some articles of his own that had appeared in the Annals of the Museum of Natural History, and the equally important Annales des Voyages (Leschenault published several articles on the scientific results of the Baudin voyage in these periodicals in 1810 and 1811, and was evidently rather pleased with them). He goes on to make another comment on his continued hope of acquiring a Merino sheep, but that he is rebuffed by the Minister in his hopes of being a shepherd, perhaps he will have to become a teacher instead... The letter ends with Leschenault boasting of the way in which he had got one of his nephews into the Marine academy in Brest at a much reduced fee - no doubt by using his current status as a famous voyager.

        Plan hydrographique de la Baie de Cadiz levé en 1807, sous la direction du Vice-Amiral Rosily... Plan hydrographique de la Baie de Cadiz levé en 1807, sous la direction du Vice-Amiral Rosily

      Paris: Dépôt Général de la Marine, 1811. Engraved map measuring 700 x 1023 mm., blank margin slightly chipped, otherwise excellent condition. Peninsular War map of Cadiz. Fine map of the city and harbour of Cadiz, prepared by the French navy during the Peninsular WarAn island naval fortress, Cadiz was a crucial British bastion during the Peninsular War. Joseph Bonaparte, whilst in overall command of French forces in Spain, overlooked its capture when the French were still winning victories against Spanish armies. This proved a major oversight because Cadiz made an admirable base and resupply point for British forces under Wellington. British supply ships could come and go at will.When the French belatedly realised its strategic importance, they attempted to besiege the site with some 20,000 men but the British garrison held out without much difficulty against the French attackers who were under supplied and short of food. British reinforcements continued to arrive at Cadiz unimpeded by the French navy. In March 1811, the British under General Sir Thomas Graham actually sallied out from Cadiz and inflicted a heavy defeat on the French under Marshal Victor at Barrosa (hence the Barrosa Valley in South Australia). Cadiz never fell to the French despite a solid blockade and continued its valuable role as a resupply base until the end of hostilities in 1814.

Zt. mit reicher Rückenvergoldung, goldgeprägten Deckelfileten und dreiseitigem Goldschnitt. Wurzbach IX, 222; ADB XII, 726; Goed. VI, 465, 5: "Als Dramatiker ist er keiner der schlechtesten von den schreibfertigen Theaterpraktikern, wenigstens läßt sich seinen Lustspielen Situationskomik nicht absprechen." Nach einem abenteuerlichen Leben als Musiker, Schauspieler, Sänger und Dichter war Franz Ignaz Holbein, Edler von Holbeinsberg (1779-1855), als Theaterdichter, Regisseur und Direktor an zahlreichen städtischen Bühnen tätig, 1841 folgte er schließlich einem Ruf ans Wiener Hofburgtheater, wo er bis zum seinem Tode im Amt blieb. Aus seiner Zeit als Bühnendirektor in Bamberg, wo er sich das Wohlwollen des dort residierenden Herzogs Wilhelm in Bayern erwarb, stammen wohl diese beiden Prachtbände, die er dem Herzog vermutlich zum Geschenk gemacht hat. - Der erste Band mit verspieltem Rückendekor: Blütenketten, gehalten von einem Widderkopf, darüber der Titel schräg in einer Raute; der zweite mit geometrischer Rückengestaltung: die Felder mit kleinen Blütenköpfen im Rund sowie Titel- und Bandschild auf farbigem Grund. Beide innen wenig gebräunt oder fleckig, Band 1 fleckig und Rückenbezug leicht gewellt, Band 2 Gelenk mit geringem Wurmfraß, Deckel mit minimalen Wurmspuren. Dennoch beide sehr schön und dekorativ.

        The Crown Calendar for the Lincolnshire Lammas Assizes. the Twenty-Seventh of July, 1811.

      Drury and Son, Lincoln 1811 - Printed bill, 365 x 230 mm., stained and creased, on very thin paper chipping at the edges; very good. For the Term of her natural life. A rare and early Macquarie-era bill for the City of Lincoln, printing the results of the Lammas Assizes held on 27 July 1811 before Sir Nash Grose and Sir Alexander Thomson. A remarkable eight prisoners are listed as under sentence of transportation, two for the terms of their natural lives.The two major sentences for transportation were handed down against Elizabeth Barton for forging a promissory note, and Edward Robinson for burglary. Barton may have married as there does not seem to be a woman of her name listed among the convict records of that date, but Robinson was certainly sent out as one of those listed on the combined manifest for the Indefatigable and Minstrel.Of the six transported for the minimum seven years, five were convicted of felony (Robert Shearing, Susanna Rogers, Clipsham Allen, Jane Hurst and Sarah Ellis), and the last, Robert Milner, for horse stealing. The fate of Shearing is a mystery, as is that of the unusually named Clipsham Allen. Robert Milner may be the man of that name transported on the Admiral Gambier and Friends but said to have been convicted at York, but the fate of the three women is clearly recorded, with Susannah (with an "h") Rogers, Hurst and Ellis joining Robinson.

        Afbeeldingen van de Kleedingen, Zeden en Gewoonten in Holland, Met Den Aanvang Der Negentiende Eeuw

      Amsterdam: Chez E. Maaskamp, 1811. Second Edition. Full Calf. Near Fine. With 21 hand-colored plates watermarked from 1803 and 1811 (mostly the latter) with the names of Maaskamp and Colnaghi & Co. of London. Plates engraved by Portman after paintings of J. Kuyper. Colas 1681. Hiler 557. The plates stand out among so many others of the same era for their depiction of people doing things. These are truly genre scenes, as opposed to static costume poses, and they thus deliver visual information about aspects of the livelihood,custom and culture of the Dutch, as intended by the book&#39;s title, which translates as "Representations of the Costume, Morals and Customs of Holland in the Early 19th Century". While there is some scattered light foxing in the book, the plates themselves are for the most part exceptionally bright and clean. A few leaves have a tight crease now flattened -- the one plate that this affects it does so de minimus-ly and is scarcely worth comment. The full calf has shelfwear evident in the corners and some other scuff marks, with a small strip of surface leather lifted on the rear board. The front gutter shows past separation which now remedied but the crack visually remains apparent the whole way down, with some spots of raw leather showing along this line. Nonetheless the leather remains quite attractive and the defect remaining worth tolerating. But for this flaw the book might be described as fine.

        The History of New South Wales, from its First Discovery to the Present Time... ; comprising an accurate and interesting Description of that Vast and Remarkable Country; and of the Persons, Manners, and Customs, of the Natives

      Newcastle: Mackenzie and Dent, 1811. Octavo, two maps and three plates, a little toning and offsetting; very good in recent full polished calf. Rum Rebellion court-martial. A very scarce book. This is the first issue: a later version gave the author's name on the title-page. Although appearing to be an early history of New South Wales, the earlier part is largely cribbed from Collins; the three engravings are all straight copies. Other sections are taken from Tuckey, Mann, and others.Of particular note is the substantial appendix, which deals with the court-martial of George Johnston for his part in the Rum Rebellion; the evidence presented at the court-martial, and included here, was the 'fullest, clearest and best substantiated account of the present state of the colony'.The four copies located by Ferguson were those in the prime Australian collections: Mitchell, Dixson, National Library of Australia, and Ferguson's own collection.

        The Crown Calendar for the Lincolnshire Lammas Assizes... the Twenty-Seventh of July, 1811

      Lincoln: Drury and Son, 1811. Printed bill, 365 x 230 mm., stained and creased, on very thin paper chipping at the edges; very good. For the Term of her natural life. A rare and early Macquarie-era bill for the City of Lincoln, printing the results of the Lammas Assizes held on 27 July 1811 before Sir Nash Grose and Sir Alexander Thomson. A remarkable eight prisoners are listed as under sentence of transportation, two for the terms of their natural lives.The two major sentences for transportation were handed down against Elizabeth Barton for forging a promissory note, and Edward Robinson for burglary. Barton may have married as there does not seem to be a woman of her name listed among the convict records of that date, but Robinson was certainly sent out as one of those listed on the combined manifest for the Indefatigable and Minstrel.Of the six transported for the minimum seven years, five were convicted of felony (Robert Shearing, Susanna Rogers, Clipsham Allen, Jane Hurst and Sarah Ellis), and the last, Robert Milner, for horse stealing. The fate of Shearing is a mystery, as is that of the unusually named Clipsham Allen. Robert Milner may be the man of that name transported on the Admiral Gambier and Friends but said to have been convicted at York, but the fate of the three women is clearly recorded, with Susannah (with an "h") Rogers, Hurst and Ellis joining Robinson.

        ALS to Princess de Salm-Dyck regarding his work on a Malay dictionary and articles relating to the Baudin voyage

      Paris: October, 1811. 3 pp. autograph letter signed Léschenault, 24.5 x 18 cm., neat and legible; very good. Chasing sheep in the wilds of France. The third substantial letter in this group from Leschenault, continuing his correspondence with the Princess. Leschenault comments at length on his travails in his continuing pursuit of some Merino sheeps, which had seen him travel into the wilds of France, where the roads and villages are more horrid than those in the Indies (no doubt a reference to his time in Timor).The letter opens with his rather scathing assessment of a place called Murat in the Mountains of the department of Cantal (where it is foggy most of the time). Well he has travelled into this place, worse than anything he has seen in the Indies, all in the hope of finding out more about the best kinds of pasturage for sheep. Thank goodness he was able to retreat to a pleasant chateaux run - God save him - by a Parisian woman, where he ate well and enjoyed a walk to see the waterfall at St. Priest (near St. Etienne). At the waterfall he had the leisure to be able to inspect the rocks with some care, and found them to be composed chiefly of quartz and granite, and probably with some other elements of which he is ignorant (a rather grand conceit on his behalf, as he goes on to list in even more detail the geologic formation of the region).A significant section of the letter deals with a discussion they had obviously had about the folly of requiring dogs to protect flocks of sheep, but in his travels Leschenault has had a long conversion with a gentleman from Limousin who has shown up the error in his thinking, because of the very real - and dramatic - danger they face from wolves, and Leschenault tells an involved anecdote regarding one particular incident.He does not know where he will travel next, but he still plans to visit several more regions on his fact-finding tour, notwithstanding the constant fog and the cold très vifs. The letter concludes with his regards to her husband and daughter Clémentine.Taken together, the three letters give an immediate and often humourous insight into the social expectations of one of the more important Baudin voyage scientists, and see him continuing work that can be seen to relate to his time in the Southern Hemisphere: the Malay dictionary, his articles on the science of the voyage, and his new fascination with the Merino, which has taken him far from the comforts of his beloved Paris.

        ALS to Princess de Salm-Dyck regarding his work on a Malay dictionary

      Paris: May, 1811. 4 pp. autograph letter (the fourth page an address panel with postal stamp), signed Leschenault, 23 x 18.5 cm., neat and legible, small tear at original seal; very good. A Baudin voyage botanist to one of his most influential patrons. Fine letter by the botanist and Baudin veteran Leschenault de la Tour regarding his scientific work in the years after his eventual return to France in 1807. This letter, part of a small archive of three to the same correspondent, is a notable contribution to our understanding of the career of Leschenault, and shows him working on projects that he had begun during his sojourn in the Indian and Pacific Oceans.Jean-Baptiste Leschenault de la Tour was chief Botanist and ornithologist of the Baudin expedition to Australia (1800-1803). Although he remained on board the Géographe during the entire Australian exploration, by the time the vessel reached Timor he was so ill that he had to be put ashore. Over the next three years he explored the botany of Java and also learned the Malay language. He returned to France in 1807, and spent the next decade working on his scientific papers, before voyaging to India in 1816.This letter and the two succeeding items were written to the femmes de lettres Princess Constance de Salm-Dyck (1767-1845). A friend of Dumas and Stendhal, she and her husband Joseph were also intimates ot Alexander von Humboldt. In 1809 the Salm-Dycks established a salon in Paris at the Hotel de Segur, and as the the present letters attest, Leschenault was a friend and frequent visitor.Leschenault writes that he has received the letter she did him the honour of writing, and discusses some work being published in the Magazin Encyclopédique and the Journal de l'Empire (the latter an anti-Napoleon newspaper that had earlier been titled the Journal des Débats); evidently the articles were quite controversial, as he refers to a "petit guerre" taking place. Leschenault goes on to complement Salm-Dyck on her book (given the date of the letter, probably her Poésies). Leschenault then continues with an account of finally seeing the first proofs of his dictionary of Malay, and noting that he hopes to improve it. He also wonders whether Salm-Dyck knows of the small 32 pp. attack on the geographical work of Malte-Brun that has recently been published, a work so polemical that it makes both parties look ridiculous, and which has not taken advantage of Salm-Dyck's own thoughts on the subject of arguments in the world of letters. There is also an engimatic comment that he no longer hears anything regarding the decree relating to the Merinos; it is not clear why Leschenault is interested in the sheep, but this must seemingly refer to the famous flock at the Royal Farm at Rambouillet. The letter finishes with his polite addresses to the Comte and their daughter Clémentine, as well as a few comment on the fish at Gregy (a property just outside Paris belonging to a friend he had recently visited).
