        [Apples] Pomme d'Api; Carpendu de Blanch; Carpendu de Rouge; Nonsuch Apple Royal; Nonsuch Summer; Margill

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1812. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In excellent condition. Image size: 16 1/4 x 12 1/4 inches. A fine image from Brookshaw's masterpiece: 'Pomona Britannica; or, A Collection of the Most Esteemed Fruits'. George Brookshaw's 'Pomona Britannica' is the finest work on fruit and flowers ever produced. Its breathtaking images display a level of technical virtuosity and beauty that distinguish this magnificent work as a true work of art.As a retired cabinetmaker, Brookshaw produced his seminal botanical study late in his career, at first publishing it in parts and then as a complete edition in 1812. The fact that this outstanding work took ten years to complete is evident in the quality of its images and the care with which Brookshaw executed each individual picture. '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.

"In the whole literature of comparative anatomy and palaeontology there is scarcely any work that can rank with this great masterpiece of Cuvier.""We follow him in his attempts to identify the remains of the fossil mammalian by comparison with existing mammalian species, and we realize with him the necessity of a thorough examination of the bony skeleton of existing mammals before such a comparison can be effected" (Zittel).From the library of the 19th-century Uruguayan homeopath Dr. Juan Christiano d'Korth who set up a practice at Montevideo in 1847. With his name on the spines and library stamps on the title-pages. In very good condition, fly-leafs browned and corners of the bindings slightly bumped.

        The New England Primer; Or, An Easy and Pleasant Guide to the Art of Reading to Which is Added the Catechism

[64 pp.], COMPLETE with frontispiece bearing woodcuts on recto and verso and numerous woodcuts throughout (worn, textblock evenly browned). IN THE ORIGINAL HOME-MADE BINDING: thin wooden boards covered with linen cloth, crudely stitched (somewhat worn) An extraordinary "home-made" American binding: specimens such as this were from conception doomed to perish, and indeed almost every one of them has. Howes describes the significance of this text: "A combined speller, reader and religious catechism, this was the first school book printed in the colonies" (New Howes N68). See also Monica Kiefer's essay, "Mental Pabulum of Godly Children" in which the tiny text is described as "just big enough to fit in a child's pocket, was immensely popular in all the Colonies and went through numerous editions even into the Nineteenth Century the crude woodcuts and the cruder rhymes illustrating the alphabet must have been a welcome diversion to children forced otherwise to study reprints of drowsy sermons of interminable length" (Targ, Bibliophile in the Nursery, p. 326).

        Moeurs des Ottomans. 6 vols

      1812. [TURKEY]. CASTELLAN, Antoine-Laurent. Moeurs, usages, costumes des Ottomans, et abrégé de leur histoire. Six volumes. Illustrated with 72 hand-coloured stipple engravings. 18mo., 129 x 78 mm, bound in publisher's pink boards. Paris: Nepveu (Impr. Le Normant), 1812. |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition, a beautiful copy in the original boards, of this celebrated work on Turkish costume and culture, illustrated with hand-coloured stipple-engraved plates of high quality; these include views of towns, monuments, musical instruments and much more. Lord Byron, in a letter to Thomas Moore (August 28, 1813), wrote: "If you want any more books, there is Castellan's Moeurs des Ottomans, the best compendium of the kind I ever met with, in six small tomes." Castellan (1772-1838) was a noted painter, engraver and architect who, after the Revolution, embarked on a lengthy tour through the Ottoman Empire; his keen eye and skilled hand made him well-equipped to produce a detailed illustrated record of the sights. Hoefer (IX, col. 92) gives a long description of Castellans' life and works, with special emphasis on the Moeurs, usages, costumes des Ottomans. It is interesting to observe that Cox, the standard authority on the literature of travel, failed to include the present work in his massive three-volume bibliography of that subject; Hoefer quotes Byron as saying: "Never go to Turkey without having Castellan in your pocket." An exceptional copy in the rare original boards, and with the plates exquisitely coloured. Colas 545. Lipperheide 1427. Blackmer 300.

        Shoka Shiki no sosno

Four volumes. 49; 42; 40; 43 pp. Illustrated with a total of 140 full-page woodcuts of Ikebana. 8vo., 227 x 160 mm, bound in original Japanese sewn wrappers, with xylographic title-slips, laid into later blue cloth chitsu. Bunka 9-10 [Tokyo: Suharaya, Horinoya, Osakaya, etc., 1812-13]. |~||~||~||~||~| Rare First Edition. These volumes offer an artistic and aesthetic presentation of the various styles of Ikebana, or Japanese flower arrangements according to season. The text is in Japanese, flower names appear both in Chinese and Japanese. Each volume is dedicated to a season with the appropriate Ikebana pictured for the appropriate season: Haru (Spring) with 33 woodcuts, Natsu (Summer) with 38 woodcuts, Aki (Autumn) with 34 woodcuts, and Fuyu (winter) with 36 woodcuts. Ikebana has a long and revered history. Introduced into Japan in the middle of the sixth century, it seems to have originated with the Chinese Buddhist ritual of offering flowers to the dead. And although migrating from China to Japan, the Zen-like arrangements of Ikebana "as it developed in Japan is without prototype and is a purely Japanese cultural achievement" (Kincaid, Japanese Garden and Floral Art, p. 124). Although it origins were certainly religious, under Japanese influence, Ikebana achieved the status of an art form. Ikebana involves complex theories of plant arrangement based on the line formed by stems, leaves and flower blooms. The schools of Ikebana have various rules, but in general the structure relates to the triangle, often in set relationships such as: heaven, earth and man or in other schools: sun, moon and earth. Covers with some wear, waterstain at lower margin of Spring volume, stitching renewed, else a fine copy. PROVENANCE: the Tanaka Collection, with ownership stamp in each volume.

        Histoire de Russie et des Pricipales Nations

      1812. RUSSIA. Histoire de Russie et des Principales Nations de l'Empire Russe. By Pierre-Charles Levesque. Eight volumes of text. xxxii, 371; 382; 395; 475; 420; 476; 453 [3]; 468 pp. 8vo., 220 x 135 mm, AND one volume Atlas in 4to., 272 x 218 mm, consisting of a folding map and 61 plates depicting portraits of the Tsars. Bound in original publisher's decorative wrappers. Uncut and partially unopened. Paris: Fournier, 1812. |~||~||~||~||~| Fourth, and Best Edition of this classic history of Russia. An exceptional survival, completely preserved in the original publisher's marbled paper wrappers, uncut and partially unopened. This fourth edition is the most complete and desireable because it reprints Levesque's text from the 1800 edition, updated with extensive corrections and enlarged with the addition of his important life of Catherine the Great. The Histoire has further been added to with coverage up to the death of Tsar Paul 1 by Conrad Malte-Brun and Georges-Bernard Depping, creating an entirely different Volume #8. Pierre-Charles Levesque (1736-1812), a protege of Diderot, obtained his knowledge of Russia and its history while teaching in St. Petersburg during seven years, from 1773 to 1780. This edition is extremely rare with no copies listed in OCLC. An appealing set in original condition with some insignificant wear to the wrappers of the atlas volume. Overall very fine.

The second edition is expanded with text (no text included in the first edition) and with an additional 30 full-page engraved plates showing examples of the Empire style. A rare clean copy of this key document of the Empire Style written by the two architects who were largely responsible for its creation. Napoleon commissioned them to design the interior and supply the furnishings for his apartments at the Louvre, the Tuileries, Malmaison, Fontainebleau, St. Cloud, and Compiègne. Thomas Hope acknowledged their influence in the bibliography to his "Household Furniture". Also important for students of the Empire style in America, in relation to the actual pieces designed by Lannuier, Joseph Brauwers, John Greuz, and Querville. Despite some marginal foxing on just a couple of plates, this is an exceptional unwashed copy of a scarce and important book, which is nearly always found with heavy spotting and foxing.

        Contes Turcs en Langue Turque

      1812. BELLETÊTE, Henri Nicolas (compiler). Contes Turcs en Langue Turque extrait du roman intitulé Les Quarante Vizirs. Two parts in one volume. 2 ff., 258; 1 f., 48 pp. (all published). 4to., 270 x 206 mm, bound in contemporary red half morocco over orange boards, many edges uncut. Paris: Imprimerie Imperiale, 1812. |~||~||~||~||~||~| First Edition of "The History of the Forty Vezirs, or, The Story of the Forty Morns and Eves," written in Turkish by Sheykh-Zada, evidently a nom de plume (for Ahmad al-Misri?), and printed in a beautiful Arabic typeface by the Imprimerie Imperiale. "Prepared by the French orientalist Henri Nicolas Belletête, the book was edited by his friend J.J. Marcel, also an orientalist and director of the French Imperial Printing establishment. This is the first edition of the collection of Turkish folk tales, and still the only source for this linguistically old version, as the manuscript version is lost. The book is printed with the exquisite Arabic types cut in the beginning of the 17th-century with the support of François Savary de Brèves, French Ambassador in Istanbul" (Herbert Duda, Die Sprache der Qyrq Vezir-Erzählungen, Leipzig, 1930). The stories are similar in style and function to those found in the 1001 Nights and have even been included in some editions of that collection. With the extremely rare, unfinished translation into French by Belletête, printed posthumously; the translation, which seemingly ends abruptly at p. 48, was printed from the draft which was found among Belletête's papers after his death. Worming at lower gutter margin (8 ff. repaired); two gatherings browned on account of the paper stock; scattered foxing; final endleaf a modern replacement; binding worn at extremities. Still a very good copy. PROVENANCE: This copy belonged to A.-A. Renouard, the famous bibliophile and bibliographer of Aldine imprints, with his MS notes on the rarity of the work on the first blank leaf. Brunet 17781. Not in Blackmer Collection.

        Medical Inquiries and Observations upon the Diseases of the Mind

      Rush, Benjamin, Philadelphia 1812 - viii, [9]-367, (i) blank. In the second issue signature H has been reset, with extra lines on each page, to allow for the expansion of section VIII of chapter II. Section VIII begins on p. 62. Page 9 at the very top has been cut to remove a signature? but does not affect the text. Some dampstaining to pages through p. 34. Leather is well worn with cracked joints. Benjamin Rush (1746 - 1813) was a Founding Father of the United States. Rush lived in the state of Pennsylvania and was a physician, writer, educator, humanitarian and a Christian Universalist, as well as the founder of Dickinson College in Carlisle, Pennsylvania. Rush was a signatory of the Declaration of Independence and attended the Continental Congress. He served as Surgeon General in the Continental army, and was an opponent of Gen. George Washington. Later in life, he became a professor of chemistry, medical theory, and clinical practice at the University of Pennsylvania. Despite having a wide influence on the development of American government, he is not as widely known as many of his American contemporaries. Rush was also an early opponent of slavery and capital punishment. Despite his great contributions to early American society, Rush may be more famous today as the man who, in 1812, helped reconcile the friendship of Thomas Jefferson and John Adams by encouraging the two former Presidents to resume writing to each other.
