      Mainz, ca. 1812. - Format (Platte): 25,5 x 33,5 cm (Bildformat: 20,5 x 28,5 cm). *Untertitel: "Ansicht des sogenannten Höffchen zu Maynz gleich nach der Belagerung von 1793, bei welcher die Stadt durch Brand vieles erlitten hat. In der Folge wurden die hier zu sehende St. Sebastian-Kapelle, die daran stoßende Gebäude wie auch die ehemalige Jesuiten-Kirche abgerissen um die neue Schäffer-Strasse zu bilden". - Schöne Vedute des historischen Stadtplatzes "Höffchen" in Mainz nach einer Vorlage des Mainzer Domkapitulars Franz von Kesselstatt (1753-1841). Kesselstatt war neben seiner Tätigkeit als Domkapitular und Politiker auch ein Maler und Zeichner von zahlreichen zeitgenössischen Mainzer Stadtansichten. Diese waren bei der Mainzer Bevölkerung sehr populär, so dass eine Anzahl der schönsten Ansichten von Neubauer und anderen Stechern als Radierungen vervielfältigt wurden. Diese reizenden Blätter sind von stadt- und kulturhistorischer Bedeutung, da sie Zeugnis von Gebäuden und Plätzen sind, die oft bereits zur Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts in dieser Form nicht mehr bestanden. - 2 kleine Papierbrüche außerhalb des Bildbereichs in der rechten unteren Ecke sind wohl repariert oder alt hinterlegt und als "Haarrisse" kaum sichtbar, ansonsten sehr gut erhalten. - Exemplar aus der alten Mainz-Sammlung Franz Heerdt.

        Portrait of Arthur Phillip Esq . Vice Admiral of the Red Squadron

      Joyce Gold, 31 January, London 1812 - Engraved oval portrait, 95 x 75 mm.; tipped onto an early album leaf, with ink border, fine. Uncommon: one of the last published portraits of Arthur Phillip, issued two years before his death, and updated to reflect his promotion in July 1810 to the new rank of Vice Admiral of the Red. The portrait is evidently based on the original by Francis Wheatley of 1786, which was first published as the frontispiece to Phillip's Voyage to Botany Bay in 1789. However, what is most significant about the present example is that the naval uniform of Phillip has been updated to reflect his 1812 naval rank of Vice Admiral of the Red Squadron. On his return to England Phillip had a distinguished naval career which saw him promoted as commander of the Hampshire Sea Fencibles in 1798, charged with the responsibility of defending the coast against invasion by Napoleon. The following year he became a rear admiral of the Blue, and he retired in 1805. The last nine years of his life saw him steadily advancing in the naval hierarchy while living in retirement in Bath, with his second wife Isabella. He died on 31 August 1814 three months after receiving his promotion to admiral of the Blue. This is an uncommon version of the famous Phillip portrait, known to be held in the Nan Kivell collection of the National Library of Australia, as well as apparently in an album associated with Ernest Favenc now held at the State Library of New South Wales. The publisher Joyce Gold was associated with the Naval Chronicle, and this portrait was originally published in that journal to accompany the short biography of Phillip published there in 1812.

        Voyage de Découvertes aux Terres Australes ? Sur les corvettes le Géographe, le Naturaliste, et la goélette le Casuarina, pendant les années 1800, 1801, 1802, 1803 et 1804

      Imprimerie Impériale [Royale], 1807-1816-1807-1811-1815-, Paris 1812 - Bound in five volumes; a handsome set of the complete official edition, including the "general reader's edition", comprising the two-volume quarto text with portrait frontispiece and two folding tables, the two-parts of the large quarto atlas bound as a single volume containing 40 plates (23 coloured and two folding) and 14 maps (two double-page); together with the "Partie Navigation", comprising a quarto text volume and imperial folio hydrographical atlas, the latter with engraved title, contents and 32 engraved charts, all pages in the imperial atlas expertly mounted on new binder's stubs; a few very sporadic spots, but the set in fine untrimmed condition, the plates crisp and the colouring bright, bound in matching French quarter red morocco over marbled boards, corners pointed in vellum. FINISHED. A fine set of the full account of the Baudin voyage. An extremely good set of the first edition of the complete official account of the Baudin voyage to Australia and the Pacific, sent out by the French government in 1800 with orders to complete the cartographic survey of the Australian coast. This set is in unusually fine condition, with the plates notably crisp and, where appropriate, with the delicate original hand-colouring. This set includes the official account of the voyage (sometimes called the "general reader's edition"), as well as the large-format atlas and its accompanying volume of text: the atlas was published in 1812 and is the first Australian atlas, while the accompanying volume of text is effectively an early pilot's guide to the coast. Baudin's two ships, the Géographe and the Naturaliste, left Le Havre on 19 October 1800 and reached Mauritius six months later, but shipboard quarrels and illness caused a mass defection of scientists and sailors. Having rejigged his crew, Baudin set sail for New Holland, sighting Cape Leeuwin on 27 May and anchoring in Geographe Bay three days later. He sailed north and examined Rottnest Island and Swan River, but the two ships became separated on 11 June. The Géographe finally anchored at Shark Bay on 27 June, but had left by the time the Naturaliste arrived. The latter vessel stayed on in Shark Bay to make an extensive survey - including the discovery of the Vlamingh plate - while Baudin and the Géographe worked along the difficult coast past the North West Cape. The two ships ultimately arrived in Timor in August and September; tropical diseases were already causing deaths among the crew. In November they sailed south for Cape Leeuwin where Baudin, ignoring his instructions to begin charting the south coast immediately, headed for Tasmania, making the D'Entrecasteaux Channel in early January. The two vessels began a close survey of the east coast, again becoming separated. Hamelin on the Naturaliste crossed Bass Strait and made a survey of Western Port before running for Port Jackson. Meanwhile Baudin began his survey of "Terre Napoleon", meeting Matthew Flinders at Encounter Bay in April. Worn out, Baudin turned for Sydney, but chose to again round the southern tip of Tasmania, meaning that he did not arrive off Port Jackson until 17 June, his crew severely weakened by scurvy. Hamelin had actually already headed out to search for Baudin in Bass Strait, but the combination of a storm and poor provisions saw him back in Sydney a few days later, and the two ships stayed in Sydney until November. Warmly and hospitably entertained by Governor King, the French spent their time recuperating and making sense of their collections. In Sydney Baudin purchased a small vessel which he named the Casuarina, placing the relatively young officer Louis de Freycinet in charge. The Casuarina, just 29 feet in length, was acquired to help make the difficult inshore surveys, and Louis' appointment should be understood as an early notice of his skills in charting. The three vessels left Sydney together, but Baudin decided to send the Naturaliste directly back to France, and Hamelin reached Le Havre [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Asiatic Researches; or, Transactions of the Society , Instituted in Bengal, For Inquiring into the History and Antiquities, The Arts, Sciences and Literature of Asia

      printed for J.Sewell; Vernor and Hood, and others, 1799-, London 1812 - Eleven volumes, quarto, with a total of 132 plates (of which 24 are folding), some handcoloured; a fine set in handsome matching contemporary polished half calf with gilt spines. A magnificent set. The first eleven years of this important publication in a marvellous contemporary binding, from a period when India was the fulcrum of British activity in the region. The journal covers everything from non-Western medicine to mystic poetry, and includes serious scholarly papers such as Sir William Jones On the Hindus - the first paper to demonstrate the unity of the Indo-European languages. Printing and the Mind of Man acknowledges the tremendous importance of Jones' paper 'This slim paper?marks a turning point in the history of linguistics and signalled the birth of comparative philology.' In it Jones first revealed the similarity of Sanskrit, Greek, Gothic and Latin languages; and by so doing gave rise to the new discipline of Indo-European studies. The entry for Jones' On the Hindus included in Printing and the Mind of Man refers to the original slim pamphlet published by the Bengal Asiatic Society in 1788. This London edition of eleven volumes published between 1799 to 1812 reprints the original Calcutta papers of the Society issued from 1784 onwards. Accordingly, Jones' paper forms pp. 415-431 of the first volume published in 1799 of the London edition. The Asiatic Society was instituted in 1784, comprising members of the East India Company stationed in Bengal and further afield alongside merchants, scholars and literati living in Britain with a deep interest in the history and cultures of Asia. The geographical scope of the studies is significant, from Arabia to Indonesia, encompassing the Indian subcontinent, China, Nepal and Tibet. The diversity of articles is astonishing, ranging from ancient history and languages through to natural history, ethnology and astronomy. Interestingly, a number of articles concern the peoples and trading products of South-East Asia including articles on the Andaman Islands and the ethnology of the Nassau Islands off Sumatra. Entries on inter-island trade and natural commodities include a detailed article of ten pages on the varieties of pepper cultivated in Prince of Wales Island (present day Penang in Malaysia). Other antiquarian articles of enduring interest include an examination of an Arabic manuscript of Aristotle, reference to Egypt and the flooding of the Nile in ancient Hindu literature and the Indian cosmology of ecliptic time. Such historical material is published alongside geographical and scientific papers such as the trigonometric survey of India by William Lambton and William Petrie (including a magnificent engraved map of the triangulation method).

The thirty years during which [he] presided over the University perhaps represent the highest point in its history. %0D%0ARobertson was born at the Manse of Borthwick, Midlothian, and educated at Borthwick Parish School, Dalkeith Grammar School, and at the University of Edinburgh (173341), where he studied divinity (DD 1759).

Despite the fact that he worked without a microscope he was able to advance greatly the understanding of the human body. He was the first to introduce the notion of tissues as distinct entities. He maintained that diseases attacked tissues rather than whole organs. Bound by Cooper and Co. Limited, Birmingham with binder's label to front pastedowns. Condition: Rebound in cloth. Externally, generally smart but with slight wear to extremities, the odd slight mark to boards and institutional stamps to spines. Front hinge to second volume strained. Internally, firmly bound.

        The Poetical Works of William Shenstone

      London - Suttaby, Evance & Fox, and Crosby & Co, 1812. London - Suttaby, Evance & Fox, and Crosby & Co, 1812 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Leather bound volume with gilt title to the spine and gilt detailing to the boards. William Shenstone (November 18, 1714 February 11, 1763) was an English poet and one of the earliest practitioners of landscape gardening through the development of his estate, The Leasowes. Shenstone's poems of nature were written in praise of her most artificial aspects, but the emotions they express were obviously genuine. His Schoolmistress was admired by Oliver Goldsmith, with whom Shenstone had much in common, and his Elegies written at various times and to some extent biographical in character won the praise of Robert Burns who, in the preface to Poems, chiefly in the Scottish Dialect (1786), called him, that celebrated poet whose divine elegies do honor to our language, our nation and our species. The best example of purely technical skill in his works is perhaps his success in the management of the anapaestic trimeter in his Pastoral Ballad in Four Parts (written in 1743), included in this volume. Condition: The volume has been rebound. The binding is generally tight and firm with both covers and all pages securely attached. There is some wear to the extremities including bumping to the corners. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright with the occasional handling mark and odd spot. There are two copperplate signatures on the front blank end papers. Overall the volume is in very good condition..

      Weimar, [1812].. 3 Theaterzettel. Folio (ca. 220:355 mm).. Ankündigungen zu den Aufführungen von "Don Ranudo de Colibrados" und Kotzebues "Der arme Poet" am 27. Dezember sowie der "Lästerschule" am 28. 12. (mit Iffland in der Rolle des Don Ranudo, des Lorenz Kindlein und des Barons); Shakespeares "Kaufmann von Venedig" am 29. 12. (mit Iffland in der Rolle des Shylock); schließlich am 30. 12. Goldonis "Der gutherzige Polterer" (In Ifflands Übersetzung, mit ihm in der Rolle des Morhof) und Kotzebues "Der häusliche Zwist" (ohne Iffland). - Iffland, der schon 1782 der erste "Moor" in Schillers "Räubern" gewesen war, gab Ende 1812 ein letztes Gastspiel in Weimar. Goethe, der den Schauspieler schon 1796 in die Stadt gebracht hatte, besuchte praktisch alle Vorstellungen, darunter die hier angekündigten, und bewirtete ihn am 28. Dezember selbst. Wenige Wochen später schrieb Goethe an Zelter: "Ifflands Gegenwart hat mir sehr große Freude gegeben. Ich habe mich ganz rein an seinem Talent ergetzt, alles aufzufassen gesucht, wie er es gab, und mich um's Was gar nicht bekümmert [...] so hab ich die Belebung todter Stücke, ja die Schöpfung aus nichts an Ifflanden höchlich bewundern müssen [...] Merkwürdig war mir es außerdem, daß Iffland, der in seinen geschriebenen Stücken die ausführlichste Breite sucht, in seinem Spiel das Concise, Knappe der extemporirten Stücke wieder heranfordert. Wie anders sähe unser Theater aus, wenn er nicht diesen Umweg hätte machen müssen [...]" (15. 1. 1813). - Etwas braunfleckig und knittrig; kl. Randläsuren; Spuren alter Faltung und Heftung. Am Oberrand zeitgenöss. numeriert "21"; "33"; "37".

Claudius Buchanan (March 12, 1766 February 9, 1815) was a Scottish theologian, an ordained minister of the Church of England, and an extremely 'low church' missionary for the Church Missionary Society. Claudius Buchanan was born in Cambuslang near Glasgow. He was educated at the University of Glasgow and the Queens' College, Cambridge. He was ordained in 1795 by the Bishop of London, and after holding a chaplaincy in India at Barrackpur (1797-1799) was appointed Calcutta chaplain and vice-principal of the college of Fort William. In this capacity he did much to advance Christianity and native education in India, especially by organizing systematic translations of the scriptures. An account of his travels in the south and west of India, which added considerably to our knowledge of nature life, is given in his Christian Researches in Asia (Cambridge, 1811). After his return to the United Kingdom in 1808, he still took an active part in matters connected with India, and by his book entitled Colonial Ecclesiastical Establishment (London, 1813), he assisted in settling the controversy of 1813, which eventually ended in the establishment of an Anglican Indian episcopate as well as the Malankara Marthoma Syrian Church. Condition: The binding is tight and firm with both covers and all pages attached. There is some wear to the extremities including loss of leather to the corners, andheavy rubbing to the boards and spine.
