      Halle, K.A. Kümmel, 1812. 8vo (210 x 120mm). pp. ix, (1); 654, with 14 (11 partly coloured) engraved plates. Contemporary brown marbled boards, with red gilt lettered label. Kurt Sprengel (1766-1833) was a Prussian botanist and physician and professor of Botany at Halle. He was viewed as the most prestigious professor in Germany. "Sprengel strongly promoted the microscopic examination of plants and studied their structure, developing his own theory of plant-cell formation. Although soon superseded, his ideas about the nature of cells and fibers provided an essential stimulus for further investigations by notable botanists, such as Heirich F. Link, Johann J. Bernhardi, and Ludorf C. Treviranus" (DSB).//Stafleu & Cowan 12.683.

        Mémoires de chirurgie militaire, et campagnes. 4 Vols.

      Paris: Chez J. Smith, 1812-17 (the imprint on Vol. III is Chez J. Smith . . . et chez F. Buisson). - xxviii, 382 pp, 8 plates; 2 leaves, 512 pp, plates 9-10; 2 leaves, 499, [1, errata] pp, plate 11; 2 leaves, 478, [481]-500 pp, 6 plates. Contemporary leather, rebacked with old spines preserved. Very Good. First Edition, second issue. A fifth volume--entitled Relation médicale de campagnes et voyages--was published 24 years later in 1841. "The Wellcome Library possesses two issues of the Memoire: the first contains the first three volumes only, and has an imprint stating that it was printed by J. Stone for J. Smith and F. Buisson; the second contains the 1817 volume as well, and has the imprint 'Chez J. Smith, Imprimeur-Librairie, rue de Montmorency' in Vols. I, II and IV, while Vol. III retains the original imprint. The second issue has the preliminaries of Vol. I and the half-title and title of Vol. II reset. The Waller Library possesses a four-volume set in which Vol. IV has eight pages of preliminaries" (Norman 1280). The two issues of Vol. IV differ as follows: "In one, signed 'De l'imprimerie de J. Smith' on the verso of the title page, the index to the volume is printed in quire 31 (pp. 481-84); the main text ends on leaf 30, verso (p. 478), and leaf 30[subscript 8] (presumably blank, corresponding to pp. 479-80) is cancelled [as in the copy offered here]. In the other issue, signed 'Imprimerie de Demonville' at the foot of p. 500. the index to Volume IV is printed in the preliminary quire, which consists of four leaves; the main text ends on leaf 30[subscript 8] verso (p. 480); and quire 31 is omitted, with a resulting gap in pagination. In both issues, the general index to the four volumes fills quire 32" (Grolier, One Hundred Books Famous in medicine 56). Garrison-Morton 2160. Garrison-Morton 4442 (citing Vol. 2, pp. 180-95): "Successful amputation at the hip-joint. Larrey was one of the first to perform this operation, with at least two successful cases." "Larrey's Mémoires, modeled after those of Paré, recount his experiences as a military surgeon with Napoleon's Grande Armée, along with his youthful adventures in North America as chief surgeon on the frigate Vigilante. The memoirs provide a fascinating record of the Napoleonic campaigns--including perhaps the best eyewitness account of the disastrous invasion of Russia--along with Larrey's methods of dealing with numerous medical problems he encountered on the battlefield. He was one of the first to amputate at the hip-joint, a procedure described [in] the Mémoires; he was also the first to describe trench-foot and to point out the therapeutic effects of maggots on wounds" (Norman 1280).

        1812 FRENCH INVASION OF RUSSIA:] Special-Karte eines Theils des russischen Reichs vom Bug bis hinter Moskau, übersetzt und aus dem grossen russischen Atlas in 107 Blatt gezogen von J.M.F. Schmidt [Special Map of the Part of the Russian Empire from the Bug River to the Area Around Moscow].

      Simon Schropp & Comp, Berlin 1812 - Berlin: Simon Schropp & Comp, 1812. Outline hand coloured copper engraved folding map, dissected and linen backed, ca. 28x50,5 cm (11x20 in). Engraved by Carl Jättnig d. ältern. With an elegant copper engraved publisher's advertising pasted on the verso of the linen of one of the folds. Housed in the original marbled paper slipcase, slightly rubbed. Overall a bright very good map. This detailed map of the western provinces of the Russian Empire, including Lithuania, Belorussia, part of the Ukraine, and Kursk, Orel, Smolensk, Kaluga, Tula and Moscow provinces, shows the theatre of operation of the 1812 French invasion of Russia. The copper engraved label on the linen back of the plan advertises "Magazin des beaux Arta et Cabinet de Géographie" - Kunst- und Landkarten Handlung von Simon Schropp u. Comp. (Jager Str., 24). Simon Schopp received a privilege for map publishing and trade in 1742 from the Prussian king Frederick II, and by the end of the 18th century became one of the major European map sellers. His company successfully worked through the centuries and is now one of the best Berlin map shops "Schropp Land & Karte GmbH". [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        A Treatise of the Law Relative to the Rights of Lien and Stoppage in Transitu. A Treatise of the Law Relative to the Rights of Lien and Stoppage in Transitu

      London: W. Clarke and Sons, 1812. Octavo, armorial bookplate of Barron Field, Judge to the Supreme Court of New South Wales in 1816; very good in full calf. Handsome legal volume from the library of Barron Field. A significant work on English law from the library of Barron Field, with his bookplate. Copies of books known to have been brought to Australia at this time are quite scarce, and much work is being done on trying to reconstruct the early libraries of New South Wales.Field was a magistrate of the Supreme Court of Van Diemen's Land and Australia's first published poet, known to have brought a serious library with him to Australia when he arrived in 1817, among which this fine copy of a contemporary work on "lien" and associated debts in the law would not have been out of place. A pencil note on this copy says that it is "from the Alexander Berry collection, purchased from John Hay by Kenneth R. Stewart in 1956", which plausibly suggests that the book remained in Australia after Field returned to England in 1824.In May 1816 had been appointed to replace J. H. Bent as judge of the Supreme Court of New South Wales, arriving on the female convict transport Lord Melville in February the next year. He went on to an influential career, and was heavily involved with many benevolent societies, most nitably publishing his Geographical Memoirs of Australia in 1825.

The preferred second edition, corrected and considerably enlarged by the author. Florez Estrada, the Procurador General, examined the issues dividing the American colonies from Spain and offered proposals to effect a reconciliation including the emancipation of the colonies.

        The Remarkable Prophecy of Jacques Cazotte [Concerning the French Revolution and Some of its Principal Promoters]

      No Place: [anonymous], 1812 Handwritten manuscript, undated. 19th century certainly, and apparently after 1812, otherwise indeterminate. xii,[1],98,[6] pp. 6.25" x 4", full straight-grained red morocco leather. Minor edge wear; Very Good Plus or even better, a nicely preserved book. See scans. A rather stupefying testament to the daunting labors of an anonymous transcriber, this 98-page handwritten manuscript - complete with handwritten index thereafter, minute handwritten footnotes within, and even handwritten pagination - relates the 1788 predictions by Jacques Cazotte, "The Prophet", of the calamities in store for the upper classes of France in the coming years. Cazotte was himself guillotined in 1792 for his royalist sympathies. Looks like he was right. Much of the contents here were, ostensibly, taken from the Literary Panorama issues - as stated, "First and Second Volumes 8vo 1812". Whether or not some of the text is also original is unknown to me, but it seems unlikely that this much handwork would have been devoted to simple copying from an early printed journal. Footnotes appear to by original to the anonymous author, who identifies himself in one of them only as a member of the Society of Friends [i.e., Quakers]. Certainly unique, this little piece stands in its own strange beauty as the product of what must have been almost unimaginably exacting work over the course of, without doubt, hundreds of hours by an author who nonetheless wished to remain completely anonymous.

First Edition of this arrangement, later issue. Köchel 6 Anhang B p. 802 ("for string or flute quartet"). RISM M5198 (same plate number, but arranged for string quartet). Rare. Given the designation "Violino secondo" of the (only) violin part of the present edition, all parts except the flute part are, in all likelihood, taken from the arrangement for string quartet. The first issue of the present arrangement was published in 1799. The high-quality paper of the present copy suggests a relatively early issue; "Cologne," however, was added to Simrock's imprint in 1812 only.

        [K621]. La Clemenza di Tito Opera... arrange en Quatuor pour Flute, Violon, Alto et Violoncelle Prix 12 Fr. [Parts]

Flauto: [i] (title), 2-23, [i] (blank) pp. Violino secondo[!]: [i] (blank), 2-23, [i] (blank) pp. Viola: [i] (blank), 2-21, [i] (blank) pp. Violoncello: [i] (blank), 2-17, (blank) pp. Oval blue handstamp to foot of title: "C. A. Andre Musikalien-Handlung Zeil D70 Frankfurt a/m." Slightly bumped at upper inner corner. A nice, wide-margined copy, in very good condition overall.. First Edition of this arrangement, later issue. Köchel 6 Anhang B p. 802 ("for string or flute quartet"). RISM M5198 (same plate number, but arranged for string quartet). Rare. Given the designation "Violino secondo" of the (only) violin part of the present edition, all parts except the flute part are, in all likelihood, taken from the arrangement for string quartet. The first issue of the present arrangement was published in 1799. The high-quality paper of the present copy suggests a relatively early issue; "Cologne," however, was added to Simrock's imprint in 1812 only. Together with the title leaf to a later Simrock edition: La Clemenza di Tito arrangee en Quatuors pour la Flute, Violon, & Violoncelle [& Vla]. Bonn: N. Simrock No. 699. With publisher's catalogue to verso. Lithographed. Handstamps of "Kaiser & Ruh Freiburg i/Brsg" and "C. M. Biebers vorm[als]... & ... mayer... Freiburg GH Baden" to foot of title.

        Fabulous Albumen Photograph depicting Richardson and his great-grandson as they appeared in the Statue of Liberty Parade in New York

      Benjamin Richardson, New York, [n.d] - PATRIOTIC & ECCENTRIC COLLECTOR OF AMERICANA RODE WASHINGTON'S CARRIAGE IN THE STATUE OF LIBERTY PARADE. 7 ½ x 9 ½ inches. Photograph by Oscar G. Mason. Very good condition, with deep rich tones. Archivally framed. Born in England in 1812, Benjamin Richardson became an American citizen in 1839. In 1849 he came to San Francisco during the Gold Rush and he bought two waterfront lots at the first sale of real estate held in San Francisco. Richardson later sold these lots to the railroads for $400,000 and moved to New York. One of the great eccentrics of his day, Richardson was instantly recognizable by his waist-length flowing silvery beard and his 210-pound, five feet six inch frame. The bearded eccentric tirelessly pursued and surrounded himself with relics of American history including Lincoln relics and Washington's carriage, which he rode in the Statue of Liberty procession. This wonderful photograph shows Richardson and his great-grandson as they appeared in the Statue of Liberty Celebration parade. This photograph is accompanied by the sheet music of Richardson's song, Uncle Ben's Liberty Celebration Song which used the photograph as an illustration.

        Considerations on the danger and impolicy of laying open the trade with India and China; Including an Examination of the objections commonly urged against the East India Company's commercial and financial management

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, 1812. Octavo, expertly rebacked in period style retaining the original spine and label and diced boards; very good with errata bound in. The tide changes in the East. Uncommon: reflections on the state of play by an East India Company agent.Published a year prior to the abolition of the Company monopoly on Indian trade, a decision with momentous implications on the revenue of the Company (and one that ultimately increased reliance on opium revenue through the China trade). The author of this book is not disclosed, however, an early owner who has signed the title page 'David Anderson' identifies the writer as 'Mr Macculloch' (ink notation). Further clues are revealed in the preface: 'The following sheets contain the substance of a series of Letters which appeared in the Morning Chronicle in the course of last summer, under the signature of COSSIM. The author finding the subject too extensive to be fully discussed within the limits of a newspaper, resolved to submit his thoughts to the Public in the present shape.

        Plate 49 - Green flesh Melon

      London: 1804-1812 - George Brookshaw (1751-1823) Hand-colored aquatint engraving from Pomona Britannica London: 1804-1812 28 1/4” x 24 1/4” framed The publication of the “Pomona” marked the re-emergence of the acclaimed artist into the public eye after a total disappearance of nearly a decade. A successful cabinetmaker with the patronage of the Princeof Wales, Brookshaw suddenly disappeared from view in the mid-1790’s, and with the “Pomona” he notonly trumpeted his return but demonstrated the skills he had acquired in a new metier: botanical art. Characterized by the highest standards of production and artistic quality, the superb illustrations that Brookshaw drew and engraved for the “Pomona” remain perhaps the most sumptuous and distinctive of the early 19th century. 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.

      1812. unbound. 1 page, 10 x 8 inches, no place, August 9, 1812. In this letter, written to Allsops Bindings, Bancroft accepts the terms from his publisher in releasing an updated edition of the "...Philosophy of Colours," in full: "I am willing to accept the terms on which you propose to publish my work on the Philosophy of Permanent Colours, requesting only that you will allow me to take such copies not exceeding thirty or forty, as I may wish to give them to persons not likely to become purchasers...charging me for them the average cost of paper, printing, etc. In regard to the copies which it may be advisable to print, I think they should not be fewer than those of the former edition viz one thousand. Whether it may be prudent to increase the number to fifteen hundred is a question which I submit entirely to your consideration & decision. Should it suit Mr. Sidney to begin printing on Monday next and to call or send for a part of the work on Saturday or Sunday, if more convenient to himself, I shall be ready to deliver." Small chip at the top left corner; fraying at the bottom left corner; one-inch closed tear in the top margin. Very good(-) condition. Scientist, physician, and British "double agent" during the American Revolutionary War. As a scientist he published the scholarly book "Experimental Researches Concerning The Philosophy Of Permanent Colours," released in 1794 and updated in 1813. As a spy he was recruited by his close friend Benjamin Franklin, who never revealed whether or not he suspected Bancroft of treason.

        Beyträge zur Anatomie der Pflanzen.

      Kiel, Königl. Schulbuchdruckerei, 1812. 4to. pp. xii, 335, (1), with 6 (3 partly handcoloured) engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, spine with gilt lettered black label (head of spine lacking small part; binding a little rubbed) Very scarce first edition of this great classic on plant anatomy from the library of P. von Martius, with his book-plate, the famous German botanist and explorer of Brasil. 'Moldenhawer was one of the principal founders of plant anatomy. His chief work, published in 1812, reflects substantially the extensive knowledge acquired in this field during the period 1800-1830. During these years, which were characterized by a wealth of polemical tracts on the structure of the basic plant organs, he went his own way in his researches and his studies... The 'Beiträge' contains important findings concerning plant anatomy that were made possible by a preparation method of Moldenhawer's own devising. He allowed the cells and vessels, which he recognized as structural elements, to macerate by decaying in water, then separated out the parts to be examined. His success was attributable to his use of the monocotyledonous corn plant as a subject of investigation and demonstration because of its simple structure and quick growth. The illustrations surpassed all earlier representations of plant anatomy. They include the first accurate depictions of the structure of the disputed fissured openings of the epidermis. By completely isolating the cells and vessels in his preparations Moldenhawer demonstrated that the cell wall is closed on all sides. This discovery clarified a long-contested question, since the membrane was seen to be doubled between two closely packed cellular spaces in intact tissue' (DSB).//Junk, Rara p. 15: 'Selten und gesucht, da für die Geschichte der botanischen Anatomie wichtig'; Pritzel 6357.

        Memoria histórica sobre qual ha sido la opinión nacional de España acerca del Tribunal de la Inquisición, leída en la Real Academia de la Historia por el Excelentísimo Señor Don Juan Antonio Llorente, Consejero de Estado, Dignidad de Maestrescuelas y Canónigo de Toledo, Caballero Comendador de la Órden Real de España; Comisario General Apostólico de Cruzada.

      En la emprenta de Sancha, Madrid 1812 - 324 pp, 13x21 cm, first edition, very rare, full leather binding solid and tight, slightly scuffed, high quality white paper, probably little used as the final gathering is still uncut. Ordained in 1779 Llorente became a major figure in the administration of the Spanish church at the end of the 18th century. In 1793 he was required to produce a report on the methods and conduct of the Inquisition. In this he was highly critical of its practices, suggesting a number of reforms, thereby bringing upon himself the accusation of ¿betraying¿ the Inquisition and a period of imprisonment - and, being also a fellow-traveller of Urquijo and the Jansenists, the loss of some of his titles and offices. In 1808 he was already supporting the Bonapartists and sent Napoleon a memorandum of proposals for the regulation of the Spanish Church. This brought him into political life and, on the imposition of Napoleon´s brother as King José I, Llorente was made a member of the Junta Nacional and later Secretary of State for Ecclesiastical Affairs. Obliged to flee from Spain in 1813 he settled in Paris in 1814, publishing his major work ¿Histoire critique de l¿Inquisition espagnole¿ in 1817/18. After del Riego¿s liberal coup in 1820 Llorente was expelled from France as a supporter of the cause and returned to Madrid, where he died in 1823. A full-length portrait of him was painted by Goya between 1810 and 1812. In addition to his works on ecclesiastical matters he wrote a number of works of history and one piece of theatre.
