        Abstract of the answers and returns made pursuant to an act . . . intituled, "An act for taking an account of the population of Great Britain, and of the increase or diminution thereof

      London: House of Commons, 1812. [Rickman, John (1771-1840).] Abstract of the answers and returns made pursuant to an act . . . intituled, "An act for taking an account of the population of Great Britain, and of the increase or diminution thereof" . . . Folio. xxxi, [3], 511, [3], 200, [2]pp. [London:] House of Commons, 1812. 339 x 202 mm. Half calf, gilt spine, boards ca. 1812, some wear and rubbing, a few small stains but sound. Very good. Stamp and inscription noting that this copy was once part of the library of the Bishopric of Worcester; notice printed on recto of last leaf: "This book is to be preserved in the Episcopal Library of Worcester, at Hartlebury." First Edition of Great Britain's second census, taken in 1811, ten years after the first census. The returns gave a total population of 12.6 million people, an increase of 1.6 million over 1801. The second census followed the model of the first: The first part detailed the number of people, their occupations, and numbers of families and houses in each of the British counties, while the second part, based on parish registers, listed the numbers of baptisms and burials per county. John Rickman, who drafted the bill that became the 1800 Census Act, supervised the first four British censuses and prepared the abstracts and reports for each.

        [Apple] Pheonix Apple; Norman's Beauty

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1812. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In excellent condition. A fine image from Brookshaw's masterpiece "Pomona Britannica; or, A Collection of the Most Esteemed Fruits," the finest work on fruit and flowers ever produced. Its breathtaking images display a level of technical virtuosity and beauty that distinguish this magnificent aquatint as a true work of art.Brookshaw produced this 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. 'Pomona Britannica' 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.'Pomona Britannica' 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. 'Pomona Britannica' is not only a didactic study, it is a masterpiece of illustration in which every picture is a testament to the artist's talent and ingenuity.Cf. Dunthorne 50; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p. 81; cf. Nissen BBI 244; cf. Sandra Raphael An Oak Spring Pomona 40a.

        [FIRST RUSSIAN CIRCUMNAVIGATION] Puteshestvie vokrug sveta v 1803, 4, 5 i 1806 godakh, po poveleniyu Ego Imperatorskago Velichestva Alexandra Pervago, na korable Neve, pod nachalstvom flota kapitan-leytenanta, nyne kapitana I-go ranga i kavalera Yuriya Lisyanskogo [i.e. Voyage Round the World in the Years 1803, 1804, 1805 and 1806 Performed by the Order of His Imperial Majesty Alexander the First, Emperor of Russia in the ship Neva, under Command of Captain-Lieutenant of the Fleet, Now Captain of the 1st Rank and Chevalier Yury Lisiansky]

      St. Petersburg: Typ. of F. Drekhsler, 1812. 2 vols. bound together. [4], ix, 246, iii, [1]; [2], 335, iii, [1] pp. Small Octavo. With a stipple engraved frontispiece portrait of Yuri Lisiansky engraved by A. Ukhtomsky after a drawing by G. Geuzendam. Preface to vol. 1 (p. vi) and the errata page in vol. 2 signed by Lisiansky in brown ink. Contemporary brown full calf neatly rebacked with gilt stamped armorial ex libris on the front board (Russian coat of arms), spine with gilt tooled decorative ornaments and a red leather label with gilt lettered title. Boards slightly rubbed on extremities, upper right corner of the title page of part I with an expertly removed library marking, bottom fore edge with some minor ink splashes, but overall a very good copy of this rare book. Beautiful presentation copy (both volumes are signed by the author) of the separately printed text (typography Drexler) of the extremely rare first edition of Yuri Lisiansky's account of the first Russian circumnavigation executed in 1803-1806 under command of Ivan Krusenstern. The companion but separately published folio atlas volume was printed at the Naval Printing Office in St. Petersburg. The majority of copies of the few we were able to trace consist of either the text volumes or the atlas, which would also suggest their separate distribution. Furthermore, according to Lisiansky's biography and the Russian National Library, it seems that the text was privately published and funded by Lisiansky and his wife and the atlas was published on account of the Office of the Russian Emperor. The stipple engraved portrait frontispiece of Lisiansky in volume one, executed by the prominent Russian engraver Andrey Ukhtomsky (1770-1852) after a drawing by Gerrit Yacobus Geuzendam (1771-1842) present in this copy is often absent as it isn't present the Russian National Library copy and both Forbes and Lada-Mocarski don't mention the portrait frontispiece in the first text volume but instead incorrectly call for it in the folio atlas which Forbes also notes is lacking the portrait in the copy he examined. In the preface Lisiansky notes that due to frequent storms and unexpected circumstances his ship ''Neva'' had to be parted with Krusenstern's ship ''Nadezhda'' many times, and not only did he have to perform a separate voyage, but also had ''to observe and describe places which Krusenstern had no chance to visit'', and this edition was published for ''the respected readers'' to have ''the full account of the voyage''. The first volume starts with the ''list of the Officials and Naval Servants of the ship Neva'' (pp. vii-ix) and describes the voyage from St. Petersburg to the Atlantic Ocean, Brazil (Santa Catarina Island), around Cape Horn to the Easter Island and further to the Marquesas and Hawaii. Six chapters out of ten are dedicated to Neva's voyage in the Pacific. Easter Island was visited on 17-21 April 1804; Lisiansky describes its relief, shores and bays (giving advice on navigation around the island), famous statues, natives and their dwellings, handcrafts, and costumes, notes about communication with the natives, et al. The Marquesas were visited on 7-17 May; ''Neva'' reunited with ''Nadezhda'' in the Taiohae Bay (Nuku Hiva), where the local king and queen visited the ship, Lisiansky visited the king's hut, home of an Englishman Roberts who lived there, local cemetery; the king was treated with pancakes, honey and port wine; 15 May - Krusenstern and Lisiansky with several officers visited nearby Hakaui Bay where they found a wonderful anchorage and a small river which Lisiansky called Nevka (after an arm of the Neva River in Saint Petersburg). Separate chapter outlines geographical location of the main Marquesas Islands (southern Fatu Hiva, Moho Tani, Tahuata, Hiva Oa, and northern Ua Pou, Ua Huka, Nuku Hiva, Eiao), and gives a detailed description of Nuku Hiva: coast, relief, anchorages, advice on navigation, local kings, wars, burials, wedding ceremonies, human sacrifice, explanation of taboo, appearance and beauty of locals, tattoos, costumes, signs of cannibalism, war tactics, weapons; special division describes about twenty local trees and plants. There is also a dictionary of the Nuku-Hivan language (pp. 152-159), including expressions like: ''Don't touch, the cannon will kill you'', ''He is a thief'', ''Have you stolen anything?'', ''Do you want to sleep on the ship?'', ''Do you eat your enemies?'' and others. The Hawaiian Islands were visited on 8-20 June, 1804. Two days after the Hawaii Island had been sighted, ''Nadezhda'' left for Kamchatka (on the 10th of June), and Krusenstern didn't land on the islands. 11-16 June ''Neva'' visited Kealakekua Bay where Captain Cook had been killed in 1779, bought provisions from the islanders, went to the village where the chief showed them holes on the trees from British cannon balls fired after the death of Captain Cook, looked at the royal palace, main temple and talked to the local priest, later visited the place of death of Captain Cook and saw ''the stone where this immortal man fell, and soon after we saw the mountain where according to the locals his body was burned''. After returning to the ship Lisiansky found there two Americans who told him about the Sitka massacre which had happened the previous year. 19 June - visited Waimea Bay (Kauai) and talked to the local king who was in the state of war with Kamehameha I. Separate chapter describes the Hawaiian Islands, especially the Big (Hawaii) Island: local kings and laws, barbaric customs, the meaning of the taboo, armed and naval forces of king Kamehameha, Hawaiian calendar and holidays, temples, human sacrifice, funerals, appearance of the Hawaiians, their costumes, list of prices paid for the provisions, and others. Separate chapter is dedicated to the reign of Kamehameha, talking about history of his ascension to the throne, and wars with other chiefs; Lisiansky also talks about the volcanic activity of the islands, local agriculture, and domestic animals; concise dictionary of the language of the inhabitants of the Sandwich Islands (pp. 228-236), includes phrases: ''Do you have pigs?'', ''Eat shit'' (noted as 'common curse of Sandwich Islanders'), and others. Five chapters of the second volume are dedicated to Neva's voyage in Russian America, including ''Brief dictionary of the languages of the north-west coast of America with Russian translation'' (the largest of all dictionaries prepared for the book, with about 500 words and expressions, and their translations into languages of Sitka and Unalaska, pp. 154-207). Lisiansky gives a detailed description of the Battle of Sitka (October 1804), voyages around the Kodiak Island and wintering there. Last three chapters describe the return travel to Saint Petersburg via Canton, Sunda Strait and Cape of Good Hope, and the discovery of the Lisianski Island (Northwestern Hawaiian Islands, ca. 1,600 km northwest of Honolulu). The first English edition translated by the author was published in 1814. ''A companion account to the Kruzenshtern narrative of the first Russian circumnavigation... Lisiansky sailed into Baranov, repulsed the Indians, and took possession of a new hill, which he named New Archangel. He spent more than a year at both Sitka and Kodiak, and the text proves him to have been a keen observer. His account of the Marquesas differs from that of Kruzenshtern . The Neva arrived at Hawaii June 8 and departed June 20, 1804, and .., includes visits to Kealakekua Bay and to Waimea, Kauai '' (Forbes 443). ''This is a very important and rare work on the history of Alaska in general and Sitka in particular'' (Lada-Mocarski 68). ''Appended are vocabularies of the language of Nuku Hiva, the Hawaiian Islands, the Islands of Kodiak and Unalaska, the Bay of Kenai, and Sitka Sound'' (Hill 1026 (English Edition)). ''Highly important work on Sitka, Kodiak and other parts of the northwest coast'' (Howes L372). ''Ranks in value with Cook and Vancouver as a contribution to geographical knowledge on the N. W. Coast, Sandwich Islands, etc.'' (Wright Howes 56-259). ''Most important work dealing with discoveries on the N.W. coast of America. The work is important also as the principal source for the Sitka Massacre'' (Soliday 873). Forbes 428 and 443 (English Edition). Sabin 41416. Smith 2255. Wickersham 6260 (incorrectly described).

        1812 1ed English Corvisart Treatise on Heart Disease Medicine Cardiology Gates

      Boston, Philadelphia : Bradford et Read, Anthony Finley, 1812. First English edition. - 1812 1ed English Corvisart Treatise on Heart Disease Medicine Cardiology Gates Important Treatise of Napoleon’s Personal Physician A rare and extremely important first edition of Corvisart’s treatise on heart disease. Jean Nicolas Corivsart was French physician during the 18th- and 19th-centuries and was well known for placing an emphasis on heart disease symptoms and studying cadavers and postmortem evidence. He was also Napoleon Bonaparte’s personal physician. This first English edition of “An Essay on Diseases of the Heart” was translated by Jacob Gates. It established many landmarks in the study of heart disease, even though Corvisart may not have penned the entire work himself. According to sources, “The first edition of Corvisart's treatise on heart diseases was written by C. E. Horeau from notes based upon Corvisart's course of clinical lectures. . . . Corvisart differentiated between cardiac and pulmonary diseases, provided the first adequate classification of the symptoms of heart disease, distinguished between functional and organic disturbances of the heart, and was the first to divide the course of heart failure into three stages. He dealt with the pathology of the pericardial sac and the muscular and fibrous tissues of the heart, gave the first description of carditis, and pointed out the relationship between valvular lesions and the development of heart failure” (Norman 518).

        Plan von Moskau nach der neuesten russischen Original Aufnahme . gewidmet von Goetz und Dietrich. Plan de Moscou. [???? ?????? ??????].

      Königlichen Beschäftigungsanstalt am Anger Munchen 1812 - Hand-coloured lithographed broadsheet plan (98 x 91.5 cm), printed on four sheets, table of Moscow districts lower right, rolled in original cardboard tube. With explanation of the plan of Moscow in Russian, French and German (19.7 x 11.7 cm), 40 pp. Very fresh example of this incunable of lithography with the extremely rare "Explication du Plan de Moscou". One of the earliest lithographic plans of the city, interestingly printed in Bavaria shortly before the invasion of Russia in 1812. Since this Catholic state was then already under Napoleonic rule, the plan was printed in French for the conquerors coming to Moscow with Napoleon. The accompanying booklet lists in Russian, French and German more than 300 sites indicated on the plan, including governmental buildings, barracks, food warehouses, as well as gateways and bridges. The result is a clear picture of the municipal, military and strategic infrastructure of the city immediately before the destruction by the "Fire of Moscow". WorldCat locates only three copies of the plan in public libraries: in Cambridge University library, University Library LMU in Munich and Bavarian State Library.

        Plate 16; Drap d'Or, White Gage Plum, Blue Gage Plum, Green Gage

      London: 1804 - 1812 - Sheet Dimension: 19.25 x 15.25 in. Frame Dimension: 29.75 x 25.75 in. Hand-colored aquatint engraving. Brookshaw’s fine illustrations make excellent use of the rich, modulated tones that the aquatint process creates. The elegantly arranged and richly colored fruits emerge from deep brown backgrounds or float on a softly mottled light ground, creating a presence unlike that of any other botanical illustrations. Brookshaw asserts in the preface that the Pomona Britannica was an enduring work created for the enjoyment and edification of “succeeding generations.” The beauty and uniqueness of his illustrations guarantees the lasting value of this most exceptional work.

        Traite pratique des Hernies, ou, Memoires anatomiques et chirurgicaux sur ces maladies; PLANCHES [PLATES ONLY]

      Paris: Gabon, Libraire, place de l'Ecole de Medicine, 1812. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Elephant Folio - over 15 - 23" tall. 31 pp. The definitive work at the time on the hernia; Scarpa's fascia and Scarpa's triangle were derived from this work. Antonio Scarpa (1752-1832) was a renowned doctor and professor, so well known that when Napoleon was made King of Italy in 1805, he visited the University of Padua and asked to meet the famous doctor. This volume contains the PLATES ONLY for the work, which is the first French version. ***DESCRIPTION: The volume is bound (we believe rebound) between sturdy card covers with a blue cloth spine, the author's last name is neatly written on the spine, bound into the book after the front free endpaper is what appears to be the original wrap in cobalt blue with a paper label, this is followed by the title page and then the listing of the plates; the eleven engraved plates follow on the right-hand side, with the ten outline plates facing on the left-hand side, TEXT IN FRENCH; large folio size (approximately 16.25" tall), pagination: (1)-15, followed by the plates, volume comprised of 29 leaves total. The volume is encased on a custom clamshell box covered with blue cloth matching the spine and lined with tan paper, with a black leather spine label. ***CONDITION: Overall very good; while there is some foxing and browning to the pages and minor overall edgewear, the browning is in the margins only and the foxing is mild. The binding is strong, the text block is secure, the hinges are solid, all plates are present as called for (although they are missing the tissue guards), and the only prior owner marking we saw is a small (approximately one-half inch) arrow in black ink drawn on the front joint pointing "up", we assume as an assist to open the book correctly as there is no label on the front board. The clamshell box is also very good overall with some general wear and light soiling, with one small scrape at the bottom of the front, it remains solid and sturdy. ***POSTAGE: International customers, please note that due to the size of this volume additional postage may apply; please contact us for details. ***Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.

        Natural History, General and Particular… Illustrated with Above Six Hundred Copper Plates. The History of Man and Quadrupeds Translated, with Notes and Observations, by William Smellie, Member of the Antiquarian and Royal Societies of Edinburgh. A New Edition, Carefully Corrected and Considerably Enlarged, by Many Additional Articles, Notes, and Plates. (etc.) (Complete with all plates present)

      T. Cadell and W. Davies, London 1812 - Octavo, 20 volumes, complete, with all plates present. In contemporary full treecalf, with gilt spines, morocco spine labels, gilt borders, and marbled endpapers. The volumes range from about good to very good or better condition. Most of the spine ends are worn, and there is general, but shallow wear to the corners and fore-edges of many volumes. The front board of Volume I is detached, but present, and some other volumes share a similar, but happier fate, with the front board hanging on by the stitching. The stitching is thick rope, so while the outer joints are no longer holding, the rope is keeping the binding together (more images upon request). The plates are overall in lovely condition, with as many as a few dozen affected by mild to moderate foxing or age-toning, mostly in the birds section (and mostly within Volume XII). Still, the overwhelming majority of the plates are bright and clean, without so much as a single spot of foxing. Happy to provide any images of any specific plates upon request. The text leaves opposite the plates are partly age-toned, as is to be expected, but all other text leaves are bright and clean, with only the most scattered foxed leaves. Some faint and shallow dampstains to a few volumes, hardly affecting any plates. Plate III in Volume I (a folding plate) has a thumb-sized chip at one corner, not approaching the image. There were a few binding/printing mistakes, but all in the positive (or at least neutral) direction - there are two copies of plate 254 bound in right next to each other, and plates 46-54 in Volume XII are all in the wrong order, but all present. A few spines are just about split, but holding. Some minor, and seemingly incomplete, repairs to a few spine labels (they were not re-titled in gilt - see images), but this is otherwise a completely original set with no other evident repairs. Though external condition makes this decidedly not a fine set in terms of condition, the plates are overwelmingly in lovely shape, and the whole set is mercifully complete. Bookplate of Joseph Neeld appears in each volume. Neeld was a Solicitor in Middlesex, England around the time of publication, and this could have belonged to him or his son of the same name, who was soon after an MP for Gatton, Surrey, and, later, Chippenham, Wiltshire.

        Liber Studiorum.

      plates watermarked 1807-1810 1812 - 2 volumes. Folio. (36.4 x 52 cm). Each volume with sheet of thick card with elaborate manuscript title, vol. number and list of plates in black ink and 71 etched mezzotint and aquatint plates (vol. I with plates numbered 1 - 35, vol. II with 36 - 71) printed in warm sanguine or sepia ink on uncut sheets of laid or wove paper as applicable with stab marks at left and retaining deckle edges, each plate mounted to sheet of card with passepartout, pencil numeration to passepartouts at lower right. Plates by J. M. W. Turner (10 plates), I. C. Easling (4), C. Turner (23), W. Say (11), R. Dunkarton (5), Thos. Lupton (4), S. W. Reynolds (2), F. C. Lewis (1), W. Annis (1), H. Dawe (4), Th. Hodgetts (3), Annis and Easling (1) and G. Clint (2) after J. M. W. Turner. One plate with several old repairs, occasional foxing or soiling; several plates with pencil annotations recto or verso in various hands. Various sheet sizes: c.300 x 440 mm; mount size: 344 x 508 mm. Contemporary green morocco portfolios by Agnew & Sons with their partial label to front pastedown of vol. I, front boards with rules in gilt and blind with floral corner tools, titles gilt to spines, cream glazed board lining and flaps, turn-ins ruled in gilt, green silk ties. A very good complete set of Turner's famed Liber Studiorum, with all plates on uncut sheets. Turner's Liber Studiorum, issued in a series of 14 parts of 5 plates per part, was published intermittently over the course of more than a decade. Turner began with the intention to produce the etched foundation of each plate himself and to leave the mezzotint to others, however, he experimented himself and eight of the plates were finished by Turner himself. For the remaining plates, Turner intended originally to use the engraver Charles Turner, but the painter's exacting demands and the disputes they led to made it necessary to use many others. Seventy-one plates were published eventually of a proposed one hundred, with a further twenty printed but never published; the published plates are categorised as architectural, pastoral, marine, historical and mountains with the corresponding initial printed above each. Turner's title for the series, the Liber Studiorum, is a direct reference to the Liber Veritatis of Claude Lorraine. In the present, complete, copy, the states (as per Finberg) are as follows: 7 plates in first state, 22 plates in second state, 25 plates in third state, 12 plates in fourth state, 5 plates in fifth state and no plates in sixth or later states. Full details of the state of each plate and their order is available on request. 'Were all Turner's paintings and drawings destroyed, his Liber Studiorum would suffice to establish his reputation as one of the great artists of Europe . the work contains some of the freshest and most vigorous outpourings of Turner's genius .Liber Studiorum is the work of a young man. Artists sometimes like poets do their best work when they are young. It may be that Turner's Liber Studiorum contains the pith of all that is best in his life and work.' (Finberg). ' . a truly monumental work, taking rank with the highest production of Turner's genius, and exhibiting intimately his strength, as indeed also his weakness, during a period of his life in which a large part of his strongest and soberest . work was done . '. (Rawlinson). Finberg 1 - 71; see also Rawlinson, Turner's Liber Studiorum, London 1878. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Les Peuples de la Russie, ou Description des Moeurs, Usages et Costumes des Diverses Nations de l'Empire de Russie, Accompagnée de Figures Coloriées.

      De l'Imprimerie de D. Colas Paris - 1813 1812 - 2 vols. Folio. Vol. I with half-title, title and dedication to the Czar, the 'discours préliminaire' (pp. 13), 61 leaves of descriptive text for the plates and 48 hors-texte hand-coloured aquatint plates; vol. II with half-title, title, 66 leaves of descriptive text (including index and list of plates) and 48 hors-texte hand-coloured aquatint plates; without pl. 18 in vol. 1 "Don Cosaques", with supplementary plate "Snow Mountains in Tobolsk". Near contemporary full green morocco with elaborate gilt decoration; rebacked. FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL ILLUSTRATED BOOKS ON RUSSIA AND HER PEOPLES. The work was published in three states: uncoloured, coloured and the much rarer hand-coloured version offered here. The 96 magnificent colour plates of Rechberg's work depict the life and costume of the various people of the Russian Empire, among them the Mongols, the Kirghiz, the Slavs, those from Kamchatka, the Cossacks, the Siberian animists, the Tartars and so on. The most striking depict marriage, hunting scenes and Tartar horse racing. This copy includes the Russian Bath plate which is often missing. All of the plates were engraved after original drawings by Karneev by Skotnikov, Manz, Melnikov, Laminit, Adam, Coqueret, Wagner, Hess and Gros. Charles (or Carl) de Rechberg was the Bavarian ambassador to the court of Alexander I. A passionate collector - particularly of Russian art and watercolours - Rechberg came across the artist Karneev who had travelled extensively in Russia between 1802 and 1805, sketching and painting as he went. Rechberg offered to help publish the sketches and the two men travelled to Munich where Karneev prepared his drawings for publication. The sketches were eventually published in Paris - during the turmoil of the Napoleonic Wars - without the supervision of Karneev or Rechberg. Karneev returned to Russia, Rechberg provided a text to accompany the artist's illustrations, edited by Depping, but had been appointed to the Bavarian general staff and was presumably occupied with matters of state.

        Journal of a Residence in India.

      Edinburgh, printed by George Ramsey, 1812. 4to. Modern half calf over marbled boards with raised bands and red morocco lettering-piece; pp. vii, 211 hand-coloured engraved frontispiece, and 15 engraved and etched plates (two folding, these washed); a little browning or spotting in places, frontispiece with mended margina flaw, one appendix page cropped at lower margin and contemporary marginal annotation. Maria Graham (1785-1842) was the daughter of the naval officer Rear-Admiral George Dundas and his wife, Miss Thomson or Thompson, a Virginian brought up in Liverpool. An enthusiastic student, Maria Dundas enjoyed the company of a wide intellectual circle and read widely, and in late 1808 she sailed to India with her sister, younger brother and father, who had been appointed to the Commission of the Navy in Bombay, and 'she kept a journal of the voyage, which records her pleasure in tasting her first banana, reading Froissart's Chronicles, learning Persian, drawing (many of these sketches are now in the British Museum), and teaching the four youngest midshipmen. Among the passengers was Lieutenant Thomas Graham, with whom she fell in love while they were reading together the somewhat unromantic works of Tacitus and Dugald Stewart's Philosophy of the Human Mind. They were engaged when the ship docked in Bombay in May 1809, and were married on 9 December 1809. Over the next two years Maria Graham travelled fairly widely in south and east India, sometimes with her husband, staying in Madras, Calcutta, and Ceylon, and developing a keen interest in Indian culture, religion, and antiquities' (ODNB). Following her return to England in 1811, Maria Graham published her Journal of a Residence in India (1812), a book 'covering everything from flora and wildlife to Parsi theology and the daily routine of the Madras lady', which 'is a lively account of her stay in India, and includes extensive descriptions and illustrations of her visits to the cave temples of Elephanta, Carli, and Canary, and the ancient city of Maliaballipooram' (loc. cit.). - The frontispiece is a portrait of Munshi Ibrahim, the Malay scribe who wrote most of Raffles' Jawi letters to the Rulers of the archipelago. In appendix II (pp. 197-203) Ibrahim describes his visit to Calcutta where he stayed with John Leyden and met Lord Minto.

        VOLCANISM WORLD MAP: SÜDLICHE UND NOERDLICHE HALBKUGEL DER ERDE NACH DEN NEUESTEN ENTDECKUNGEN DER VULKANISCHEN-LINIEN.

      Copper engraving with original colour in outline, printed on blue paper (Very Good, usual soft folds, slightly stained along the folds) 46 x 60 cm (18.2 x 23.6 inches). - Weimar: Verlag des Geographischen Instituts 1812. An uncommon map of the World with marked vulcanic lines was published to accompany a scientific article by a German researcher of antiquity and Egyptologist Friedrich Sickler in 1812. - An uncommon map of the World, shows the volcano lines, was published to accompany a scientific article on volcanoes by a German researcher Friedrich Carl Ludwig Sickler (1773 – 1836) in 1812, in Weimar, Germany. Sickler was a teacher, Egyptologist, researcher of Antiquity and a friend of Wilhelm von Humboldt. In his article Sickler analyses the role of the volcanoes in the antiquity through ancient texts and myths. In the second part of the text, which is relevant for our map, the author explains the main lines, connecting the active and ancient volcanoes of the Earth. The map together with the article, was published in June, 1812, in a scientific magazine Allgemeine geographische Ephemeriden, which was edited by Friedrich Johann Justin Bertuch (1747-1822), a German publisher, who specialised in books and magazines on natural science. His name is usually connected with the richly illustrated encyclopaedia for children Bilderbuch für Kinder, issued in 12 volumes between 1790-1830. References: Friedrich Sickler, Abhandlungen. Ideen zu einem vulcanischem Globus. in: Allgemeine geographische Ephemeriden, 1812, pp. 121ff.

The plates from this edition were first published by R. W. Dickson under the pseudonym Alexander McDonald in "A Complete Dictionary of Practical Gardening" (1807). However, in this edition the presentation of the plates is far superior due to the more brilliant coloration and the fact that a higher quality paper stock was used to print the plates in the first place.

Contemp. half brown calf over marbled boards, spine tooled in gilt with alternating black and red labels; very sl. splitting along tails of following hinges, boards sl. rubbed. Bookplate of E. H. (Edward Howard) Greenly, & ink ownership inscription of Lady Elizabeth Greenly on each titlepage. An attractive copy of an exceptionally rare early nineteenth-century novel.BL, Liverpool, University of Sydney & University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign only.Contemporary paper strip tipped over first publisher's name (Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Browne) within imprint of each title with 'For' written in ink, so that the altered imprint reads 'Gloucester: printed by Joseph Wood, for Brisley, Stroud; and Washbourn, Gloucester'. The novel was also issued by the Minerva Press for A.K. Newman in 1812, with only one extant copy at the BL. It seems likely that Longmans - the original publishers - disassociated themselves from the novel after the sheets had already been printed by Joseph Wood, so he and his local associates covered the Longmans imprint on the original titlepage and sold what they could. Shortly afterwards, the Minerva Press must have bought the original sheets and issued them with a cancel titlepage reading 'London: printed at the Minerva Press, For A.K. Newman and Co. Leadenhall-Street. 1812', with 'Printed by J. Wood, Herald Office, Gloucester' on verso. The novel is a tale of inheritance and mistaken identity, and tells the story of a gypsy girl who is taken in by a wealthy bachelor and raised as a member of the family. It was reviewed as a Minerva Press novel by early women's magazine La Belle Assemblée in 1812 (Issue 40) and was declared an enjoyable, though predictable, first novel. The reviewer writes that the authoress 'certainly has talents' for the 'just delineation of natural character' and states that 'we shall be glad to see a future production of this lady's.' The anonymous author's second book Lady Jane's Pocket was published by the Minerva Press for A.K. Newman in 1815.

        A Treatise on the Culture and Management of Fruit Trees bound with a 19th Century manuscript diary and notes on fruit trees. August 1812 to September 1849.

      A Treatise on the Culture and Management of Fruit Trees bound with a 19th Century manuscript diary and notes on fruit trees. August 1812 to September 1849. FORSYTH, William. A Treatise on the Culture and Management of Fruit Trees in which a new method of pruning and training is fully described : to which is added, a new and improved edition of "Observations on the diseases, defects, and injuries, in all kind of fruit and forest trees" : with an account of a particular method of cure, published by order of government . By William Forsyth, F.A.S. and F.S.A. gardener to His Majesty at Kensington and St. James's, member of the Oeconomical Society at St. Petersburg, &c. &c. The Fourth edition, London, printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, and Orme, Paternoster Row; and T.Cadell and W.Davies, Strand, 1806. Bound in full calf, rebacked, spine in six compartments with blind stamping, original label reused. New corners, inner hinges reinforced, new front and rear free endpapers.Pp [xxviii],523. 13 plates, 11 of them folding , some foxing and offsetting, but a Very Good plus copy.[Bound in with] pp 54 manuscript notes on fruit growing dated from August 1812 to September 1849. This is a very good example of the fourth edition Forsyth's classic work. It has had nearly 200 blank pages bound in at the rear of which over 54 have been used to keep notes, largely on the growing of Fruit Trees. The notes begin with an entry for August 1812 with the last being on September 1849. The notes are anonymous but we have found an embossing stamp to the last few leaves of the remaining blanks reading "W.Robinson/ Liverpool". We have found several references to Robinson family members in Liverpool in connection with fruit growing; "....but very admirable fruit, a little injured by packing was also sent by Mr Robinson, gr.[gardener?] to A,Sinclair Esq of Liverpool...." [Gardeners Chronicle July 20 1844].Another similar entry relating to awards for fruit growing gives Mr Sinclair living at Hillside House. Further research led to; HILLSIDE HOUSE ESTATE - Wavertree The Capital Mansion called HILLSIDE HOUSE with stable & coach-house, greenhouses, gardens, orchards, pleasure grounds, lodge and land adjoining in a ring fence, situate in Wavertree on the north east side of Allerton Road, containing 10 acres of land statute measure now in the occupation of Archibald Sinclair Esq.[Liverpool Mercury 14 July 1854]. The Mansion was built a few years ago by the owner in a most substantial manner with the superintendance of the late Mr Samuel Rowland. It is pleasantly situated on an imminence, and views of Mossley Vale......" Archibald Sinclair was a Bottle, plate, and Crown Glass Merchant who seems to have died in 1859. We have also uncovered yet further links to a William Robinson connected to fruit growing, with a Company founded by a William Robinson in 1860 with several subsequent generations of William Robinsons running the business, and which still survives today near Preston. The manuscript notes mention meetings with "Mr Farrer of Kirkdale" [ms. p7], "procuring an Orange Apricot from the Nursery of Messrs.Whalley"[ms. p 21], "Vines in the Hothouse at Euston....from the Nursery of Messrs. Chandlers ...at Vauxhall London in pots "[ms. p 63], and he transcribes many entries in the Transactions of the Horticultural Society Liverpool Mercury 14 July 1854 by Mr A Briggs, Joseph Banks, J.A.Knight.etc. There are recipes for "Destroying Worms", "Destroying Slugs"," To Destroy Caterpillars" and " To Destroy the American Bug in Apple Trees". The author describes grafting Vines [ms. p 57], and writes dated entries describing interventions with fruit trees etc. Whilst authorship is as yet uncertain, this is an interesting manuscript, showing the concerns of an estate gardener in the early part of the C19th.
