Very good condition with only minor signs of external wear. Three smaller library stamps. Internally besides very few signs of foxing a very clean and fine example of this important work. Garrison-Morton 2737 - "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" nnWillius & Dry - pages 108-109: "Corvisart was one of the first to mention and interpret palpable thrills over the precordium in the diagnosis of carduiac disease (un bruissement particulier difficile a decrire) and he particularly stressed the diagnostic importance of the thrill in mitral stenosis. He described fibrinous pericarditis, stating that the massive deposition of fibrin caused the pericardium to resemble the reticulum of the second stomach of the calf. Corvisart also recognized tubercles of the pericardium and recorded an instance of massive pericardial effusion in which 4 litres of fluid were present"

        A Book for Recording Marks for the Respective Inhabitants of the Town of Massena

      1812-1829, Massena, NY 1812 - Small 4to. 12 pp. Stitched. Primary source material for the study of animals as property in rural America at the turn of the 19th-century. This small but fascinating manuscript is of a type that is rarely encountered. It describes the distinctive markings of animals belonging to 47 different owners, all residing in an upstate New York village located on the Canadian border. The MS entries are dated from April 7, 1812 to June 13, 1829. The compiler of the MS was the Town Clerk, J.B. Andrews, Jr. The 1810 New York State Census records just 144 families in Massena; that the present MS record owners' marks for one third of the town is extraordinary. Some of the MS entries include:"Ebenezar Hitchcock's Mark is a Swallow fork on each ear. Recorded April 7th, 1812."Jacob Chase's Mark is a Crop off the Right Ear and a Slit in the Same Ear. Recorded April 7th, 1812."Rodwick Messenger's Mark a Slope on the upper side of the left Ear and the same on the under side of the right Ear. Recorded April 4th, 1818."On the final leaf is a certified attestation that a "deep red heifer calf without any white about it" came into the enclosure of one James Abellwood on 20 Dec. 1828. Evidently the calf had no owner's markings about it either, thereby attesting to the importance of such a document as this. Very good antiquarian condition

        The First Tour of Doctor Syntax, in search of the picturesque; [with] The Second Tour of Doctor Syntax, in search of consolation; [and] The Third Tour of Doctor Syntax, in search of a wife

      Early Reprint London Nattali and Bond, Bedford Street, Covent Garden [through 1855] 1812 Ninth Edition, complete in three volumes with 80 hand-colored aquatints by Thomas Rowlandson. (Eighty-one plates are called for on the title pages, but the plate lists contain a total of only 79, with the illustrated title page in Vol. 3 unlisted. Presumably, there was an illustrated title page planned for the Second Tour but never included.) Tall 8vo's: [6],272,[6, catalog of books published by Nattali and Bond]; [4],277,[1]; [6],279,[1]pp. Hand-marbled paper-covered boards, finely woven green cloth spines, matching morocco lettering pieces gilt, recently bound by Fitterer, a truly splendid production. Fine bindings; clean, wide-margined pages with only occasional offsetting; vibrant, deep, rich, fresh coloring. Abbey, Life, 265-67. Tooley 427-29. Fine ¶The three tours of Doctor Syntax, featuring the comic, skin-and-bone cleric at the mercy of all manner of misadventures was supposedly based on an idea of Rowlandson's close friend, the actor Jack Bannister, and with verses by William Combe, first appeared in 1812, 1820, and 1821, respectively. Combe's letterpress for Rowlandson's illustrations, produced by the prestigious publisher and art dealer Rudolph Ackermann, earned Combe his soubrette, Doctor Syntax. "Combining a light-hearted satire of William Gilpin's theory of the picturesque in art with a central character modelled on Cervantes' Don Quixote and Henry Fielding's Parson Adams, Combe created a lovable eccentric whose misadventures on the road structure the Tour. [Other sources for Syntax, drawn from the picturesque tradition, were probably Le Sage's Gil Blas and Smollett's Peregrine Pickle, as well as Samuel Butler's earlier Hudibras.] For over a century the many editions and numerous imitations of the Tour attested to the popularity of Combe's humorous hero." (ODNB) "Combe's first Dr. Syntax book (originally published in the Poetical Magazine in 1809) and its successors . . . satirize the many 18th- and early 19th-century writers whose "Tours," "Travels," and "Journeys" were vehicles for sententious moralizing, uninspired raptures, and sentimental accounts of amorous adventures. The popularity of Combe's work owed much to the illustrations of Thomas Rowlandson." (Britannica) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition.

        Temple of Flora, or Garden of the Botanist, Poet, Painter, and Philosopher.

      London: Robert Thornton, 1812. Large quarto (in twos) measuring 376 x 303 mm., with a total of 29 handcoloured aquatint plates including the frontispiece, two uncoloured engraved plates and two engraved title-page leaves; a fine copy in contemporary full straight-grained crimson morocco, ornate gilt tooled borders and spine ornament. The greatest botanical book of the romantic era, and 'probably the most unconventional flower book ever published' (Tomasi). The Temple of Flora was the extraordinary invention of physician Robert Thornton (1768-1837) who ran a private practise and lectured on medical botany at two London hospitals. It is a visual tour-de-force, featuring individual flower portraits in moody and evocative settings. Arresting and irresistible, the 29 plates are 'the most overtly dramatic in the history of botany' (ODB). This is an example of the so-called "Lottery edition", produced by Thornton in 1812 as one of the series of prizes in the lottery designed to save him from bankruptcy. This edition follows the earlier large folio version which began publishing in parts in 1799 under the title New Illustration of the Sexual System of Linnaeus. The ambitious project was aptly renamed Temple of Flora in 1804. The first edition was in a very large format: this subsequent edition, which contains an additional plate (the "Artichoke Protea"), appeared as a more manageable large quarto (in fact technically made up as a folio) with engraved title pages dated 1812. The stupendous price of 20 guineas when the series of plates with text was first offered for sale reflected the exorbitant cost of production. Each flower portrait began as an oil painting commissioned from leading artists of the era; the paintings were in due course rendered as magnificent aquatints by Stadler and Sutherland. Although the retinue of artists included great names such as John Russell and Sir William Beechey, Thornton favoured the work of professional botanical illustrators Peter Henderson and Philip Reinagle who contributed the majority of images to the Temple of Flora. Not surprisingly, Thornton's ambitious and eccentric publishing project destroyed him financially. Not even the public lottery ordained by Act of Parliament, wherein the winner claimed the suite of original artworks, could save him from ruin. The first prize in the lottery was original artworks, the second enhanced sets of the first edition; the third series of prizes was 200 sets of coloured plates, while the fourth series of prizes were copies of this quarto edition. The text is really curious to modern sensibilities, combining scientific botany with a seemingly disparate range of emotional, spiritual and political themes, all generously interspersed with poetry from ancient and contemporary sources. For Thornton, flowers not only manifested divine perfection but represented an ideal of earthly love and purity which could - and should - be emulated in human affairs. It was a universalising vision of material abundance derived from the plants of the earth and trade in their products, ultimately intended to eclipse human strife and conflict. The dream of peace through botanical curiosity is remarkably idealistic given the atmosphere of the times: Thornton's publishing career was overshadowed by the Napoleonic wars in Europe. Very slight age-darkening to plates but in generally fine condition in well-preserved contemporary binding.

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

      London: Joyce Gold, 31 January, 1812. Engraved oval portrait, 95 x 75 mm.; tipped onto an early album leaf, with ink border. 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. Fine.

        Reise um die Welt in den Jahren 1803, 1804, 1805 und 1806 auf Befehl Seiner Kaiserl. Majestat Alesxanders des Ersten auf den Schiffen Nadeshda und Newa...

      Berlin: Haude und Spener, 1811-1812. Two parts in three volumes, duodecimo, stipple-engraved portrait of Krusenstern and two other frontispieces both finely coloured by hand, folding engraved map and 11 double-page engraved views and a large folding map; a fine set in original papered boards, orange labels, red edges, preserved in a cloth slipcase. The first Russian circumnavigation: its captain, Krusenstern, was accompanied by a brilliant corps of officers, which included men like Lisiansky, Langsdorff, and Kotzebue. This Russian voyage was of great importance to Pacific history for the attempt to open Japan to commerce, and for the observations made on the Russian-Chinese trade. The Nadeshda and the Neva were together at the Marquesas and Hawaii; there they separated and from this point on Krusenstern's narrative concerns the western Pacific. The book includes a view of Nagasaki Harbour, one of the earliest views of Japan published in the west, as well as views of Nukahiva (three), Japan (three), Macao, Canton, St Helena and St Catherine, Brazil.This was the first popular account of this important voyage to be made available to the public, and the first edition to have been printed in Germany, published at the same time as the more costly St Petersburg quarto edition. No English edition appeared until 1813.This is an excellent copy of this scarce edition, in which an extra piece was added (at the start of volume 3) by the publisher in the form of the Nachricht by Langsdorff on the practice of tattooing in Nuku Hiva and the Washington islands, including a small woodcut showing the instruments used. There is also a Prospectus by Langsdorff and his publisher Wilmans for the German publication of his Bemerkungen. Bindings a little worn at joints and extremities, but still quite tight; several small private library stamps throughout.

        The Botanical Magazine; or Flower-Garden displayed...

      London. W. Curtis. Copyright 1793. This issue circa 1812. 2 volumes bound in one, 72 handcolored engraved plates each with facing page of text, 10 3/4 x 6 3/4 inches (26x17.5cm), decorative embossed cloth-covered boards. Plates on wove paper, generally very clean and bright, occasional light foxing or spotting (spot and pinhole to centre of plate 16, the Variegated Iris), some foxing to text pages. Front joint broken, white tape mend to interior hinge at Preface. This is an early 1800s reprint of the first two volumes of William Curtis' periodical "The Botanical Magazine." This publication proved so popular that plates from the earlier volumes were reissued to satisfy the demand of later subscribers who desired a complete set. Curtis featured some of the most decorative and popular imported plants in these early volumes, making these volumes an absolute treat for the eye. Plants include Moss Rose, several varieties of Iris, Daffodil, Gentian, Eastern Poppy, Cyclamen, and, from China: #64 Tawny Day-Lily; #25 China Pink, #42 Rose Camellia. These are very strong impressions, which are particularly pleasing contrasted against the white color of the wove paper.

        Bemerkungen auf einer Reise um die Welt [with] Kupfer zu G.H. v. Langsdorff's Bemerkungen auf einer Reise um die Welt...

      Frankfurt am Mayn: Friedrich Wilmans, 1812. Two volumes quarto bound in one,; with accompanying two part atlas bound as one quarto volume with two frontispiece portraits and 43 other engraved plates (one folding) and a folding leaf of music, title-page to each part and a leaf with explanatory text each side to face each of the plates; non-uniform binding comprising the text in contemporary half calf with double labels, the atlas in original marbled boards, leather label on spine. The uncommon first edition of the Langsdorff account of the Krusenstern voyage to the north Pacific and Japan, in its preferred form with separate atlas. The small atlas, with its marvellous series of plates after Langsdorff's original sketches, is seldom seen in this form as the plates were more often bound into copies of the text, usually with the leaves of explanatory text (here present) discarded by the binder on account of the complication that they present: the text on recto and verso of each leaf describes two different plates which are not always to be bound near each other. This copy contains both the two separate title-pages ("27 Kupfer... " and "17 Kupfer... ") to each part which are also more often discarded.The plates include eight of the Marquesas, five of Japan, three of Alaska, and two of California, and this original edition also includes the earliest known view of San Francisco - which was one of the images that was dropped and did not re-appear in the subsequent English version.The Marquesas plates are of particular interest for the images of tattooing in the islands, and especially for the engraving of Jean Baptiste Cabri, the French deserter who had been living there for some time and had taken a Marquesan wife and become extensively tattooed. Cabri went back with the expedition to Russia and made a living exhibiting himself and telling tales of his life among the "savages" of the islands. He toured widely in Russia and then in Europe for some years. He is noteworthy as one of the first extensively tattooed Europeans to exhibit himself: since the late seventeenth century such exhibitions were almost exclusively of native people, such as Giolo who came back with Dampier, and Omai who came to England on Cook's Endeavour.'When the Russian explorer Ivan Fedorovich Krusenstern arrived in the Marquesas in 1804 he found two Europeans living among the natives. They were a Frenchman, Jean Baptiste Cabri, and an Englishman, Edward Robarts. Both men had lived in the islands for several years and had been tattooed in the Marquesan fashion. Krusenstern employed them as guides and interpreters, and George Heinrich von Langsdorff, the German naturalist who accompanied Krusenstern, used them as informants when he wrote the first published account of native life and customs. The tattoo culture was reintroduced in the country when 18th-century European sailors travelled to Pacific islands and got fascinated by this art. They brought some form of exotic art back to Europe. French sailors were most fascinated from the art. The Frenchmen Jean Baptiste Cabri was the first person to get his entire body tattooed and display himself for an admission fee at fairs. However till the late eighteenth century this art was considered to be nomadic and lower class art basically symbolizing the criminals and uneducated class people...

Thomas et al, eds., Tattoo: Bodies, Art and Exchange in the Pacific and the West, London, 2005. Provenance: Old library stamp and shelf-mark on first title; a very good set. Some foxing.

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

      London: printed for J.Sewell; Vernor and Hood, and others, 1799-1812. Eleven volumes, quarto, with a total of 132 plates (of which 24 are folding), some handcoloured; contemporary polished half calf with gilt spines. A splendid set in a handsome and well-preserved contemporary binding: the first eleven years of this important publication, dating 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, first published as a pamphlet in 1788 and reappearing in the first volume here (pp. 415-431): '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 Asiatic Society was instituted in 1784 (originally as "The Asiatick Society"), 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 remarkable, 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 fine engraved map of the triangulation method).The effect of the society's various publications and undertakings was profound, doing much to acquaint its European readership with the principles and practice of both Hinduism and Buddhism and contributing generally to the growing interest in the comparative study of civilisations. As Michael Palencia-Roth has noted, 'The founding of the Asiatick Society reflected - and then influenced - a profound change in humankind's view of itself. This change had to do with the realization that the study of human society and its cultural and political manifestations had to encompass much more than the Greco-Roman and Judaeo-Christian world, and that the meaning of human history could not be made to depend primarily on a Judaeo-Christian conception of the world and of human destiny' ("The Presidential Addresses of Sir William Jones", online resource).

        Geographical, Commercial, and Political Essays.

      London: A.J. Valpy for Longman and Co. 1812. Octavo, original blue papered boards with printed spine label, bookplate of John Chapman, uncut. A very fine copy, in entirely original condition. This collection contains a number of entries related to transportation and the early history of Australia, including three important letters by Samuel Marsden, apparently not otherwise recorded.The collection also includes a further two printed letters relating to the early settlement of Port Phillip and Van Diemen's Land written by Mrs. Hartley, wife of the settler and failed entrepreneur John Hartley: the Hartleys became involved in a long-standing and litigious debate with Lieutenant-Governor David Collins about what they considered his hasty abandonment of Port Phillip in favour of the newer settlement across Bass Strait. No other printed account by either of the Hartleys appears to be extant, although the government version of events, including a detailed denunciation of the Hartleys' opportunistic trading practices in the new settlement, can be read in some detail in the Historical Records of New South Wales (volume 5, pp. 503-8).All of these letters are collected in a chapter entitled "Fragments for a future History of Botany Bay, or New South Wales". The first is Marsden's six-page appraisal of the nascent colony entitled 'Present State of the Colony in New South Wales, related to me February 14, 1809.' In this letter, written during his brief sojourn in England of 1808/9, Marsden bemoans the degenerate morality of the soldiers and convicts while calling Governor Bligh (here spelt "Blythe") 'a man harsh and unpopular.'There are also two unsigned letters in this collection which can be shown to have been written by Marsden. One is dated 14 September 1798, and gives wonderful details regarding his farm and the 26 convicts he employed. There is also specific mention of the seventeen missionaries and migrants who had recently arrived 'from Otaheite' - a scheme with which Marsden was closely involved. The other letter gives the strongest clue about the authorship of the letters, writing about the building of a church for 'his parish of Parramatta and Hawkesbury.' These two letters do not appear to be otherwise recorded.Equally interesting are the two letters from the pen of Mrs. Hartley. The first is dated 23 May 1805, and notes that it was sent home on Flinders' old ship the Investigator. Mrs. Hartley, as she writes here, arrived in Port Phillip in October 1803, and describes it as a 'delightful spot' and that they were terribly disappointed at being forced to abandon the settlement 'through the whim and caprice of the Lieutenant-Governor.' As this suggests, Mrs. Hartley is certainly less enthusiastic about the 'barren mountains' of Van Diemen's Land. The following letter is dated 25 May 1806, and Mrs. Hartley writes favourably of conditions in Botany Bay ('a most desirable country').Barker's collection, besides, includes any number of other interesting essays, most notably 'A Curious Account of a Convict-ship', by one Captain Bertram, who describes two days spent on board a transport preparing to leave London.Only very rarely offered for sale, this is the Ivo-Hammett/John Chapman copy, with the latter's bookplate. Excellent.

"Cuvier was considered by the public to be a bit of a wizard, a man who had brought to life animals that had long since become extinct... Cuvier knew how to make great strides in studying these creatures and could endow this study with new accuracy. His famous paleontological reconstructions had the living being as their point of departure... before witnesses he removed from a stone block the marsupial bones of a small opossum fossil, bones whose existence he had surmised on the basis of the conformation of the visible part of the skeleton. As early as 1804 Cuvier had the idea of reconstructing the musculature of extinct animals from imprints left by the muscles on the bones; then he merely had to imagine the skin over the muscles and the animal was practically brought back to life" (DSB).

        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. 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.

        Les Hindous, ou description de leurs moeurs, coutumes et ceremonies...

      Paris: chez l'auteur & H. Nicolle, 1808-1812. Four volumes, large folio; text in French and English, colour vignette on each title-page; half-titles in volumes I and IV; with 288 colour-printed plates finished with further colour by hand; contemporary English half light tan morocco over marbled boards, gilt, a splendid binding by J. Mackenzie (with his stamp on flyleaves). A splendid set of this great book, from the library of the great English collector Beriah Botfield, and in typically fine condition, elegantly bound for him by James Mackenzie, one of the finest London bookbinders of the early nineteenth century and "Bookbinder to the King". Botfield's superb library eventually made its way by bequest to the great English estate of Longleat. Various books and paintings from the bequest have been sold by the Thynne family in modern times.Solvyns' Hindous offers an extraordinary portrayal of life in India at the end of the eighteenth century, in a stunning series of etchings printed under the supervision of the work's eccentric creator which depict manners and costumes, trades and personalities, customs, festivals and scenes from daily life, and the environment of the Bengal people. Every plate is accompanied by French text with English translation by Solvyns' wife.Solvyns, born in Antwerp in 1760, left a career as a marine painter to seek his fortune in India, where he worked as a journeyman artist. In 1794 he announced his plan for A Collection of Two Hundred and Fifty Coloured Etchings Descriptive of the Manners, Customs and Dresses of the Hindoos: published in Calcutta in a few copies in 1796, and then in greater numbers in 1799, its etchings appeared crude by contemporary European standards, and the book was a financial failure. Solvyns left India for France and soon began the huge project of reworking the etchings for this folio edition published in Paris between 1808 and 1812, which used some quite pioneering techniques. (For example, as Abbey points out, sometimes two plates are used for an image with different colours, to create a chiaroscuro effect). Godrej and Rohatgi point out that 'his influence was considerable and, like Thomas Daniell, he was a pioneer in the field of print-making in India'. This Paris version proved an artistic success but the cost of its production was so enormous that it once again represented a financial disaster for Solvyns, who ultimately returned to his native town Antwerp where he died in 1824.Always rare, Solvyns book has sometimes been disregarded on account of its author's eccentricity, but in modern times there has been new appreciation of his work, exemplified by Robert L. Hardgrave's publication A Portrait of the Hindus: Balthazar Solvyns & the European Image of India 1760-1824 (Oxford University Press, 2004). The author has also created a remarkable internet resource http://asnic.utexas.edu/asnic/hardgrave/SolvynsProject.html, where all the etchings of this edition are reproduced online, along with the earlier Calcutta printings and the selection of plates pirated by Edward Orme for the Costume of Indostan in 1807.'Solvyns's portrayal of India constitutes an unrivalled visual account of the people of Bengal in the late eighteenth century. The prints in themselves are of importance in a tradition reaching back to the early seventeenth century, and even earlier, with encyclopedic efforts to represent systematically both the unfamiliar, as in costumes of foreign lands, and the familiar, as in the typologies of peasants, craftsmen, and street vendors. In portraying the Hindus, however, Solvyns is not simply recording ethnographic types. He gives his figures individual character and places them in time and space, with narrative interest, and in doing so, he provides the viewer intimate access. This separates him from purely encyclopedic interest, for with artistic purpose he combines the ethnographic and the aesthetic. He conveys "art as information".'As an artist, Solvyns provided a prototype for the genre of "Company School" paintings of occupations, done by Indian artists for the British... More significantly from an historical and social perspective, Solvyns's work, with its accompanying descriptions, constitutes "the first great ethnographic survey of life in Bengal". Moreover, in his ordered, hierarchical portrayal of Hindu castes in Bengal, however problematic it may be, Solvyns may well be the first European to provide a systematic ranking of castes. Yet this contribution has never been recognized, and historians and anthropologists have rarely drawn upon Solvyns for an understanding of society in Bengal in the late eighteenth century' (Hardgrave, op. cit.). Some light foxing in places.

        BEMERKUNGEN AUF EINER REISE UM DIE WELT IN DEN JAHREN 1803 BIS 1807

      Frankfurt: Friedrich Wilmans, 1812. Two volumes. [28],300,[1],[30]pp. plus portrait and twenty-eight plates (two folding, of which one double- sided); 335,[1],[20]pp. plus portrait and sixteen plates. Integral explanatory text interleaved with plates in each volume. Quarto. Contemporary three-quarter calf and marbled boards, blind ruled, morocco spine labels, edges painted red. Spine and corners rubbed, small area of worming to lower front board of volume one and lower rear board of volume two. Contemporary ownership inscription on front free endpapers. An occasional faint fox mark. Very good. Langsdorff, in the capacity of natural historian, accompanied Krusenstern on the first Russian circumnavigation of the globe as far as Kamchatka, which they reached in 1805. Also on the voyage was Nikolai Petrovich Rezanov, Chamberlain of the Czar and Russian ambassador to Japan. On the way out they stopped in Brazil and along the coast of South America. At Kamchatka, Langsdorff and Rezanov left the expedition for Alaska to investigate the Russian-American Company at Sitka and report to the Czar. The following year Langsdorff sailed with Rezanov and Davydov to San Francisco to obtain supplies for the Russian colony. The second volume describes Langsdorff's journey to the Northwest Coast with Rezanov, and his trip back to St. Petersburg via Siberia. Almost seventy pages of this volume are devoted to their stay in San Francisco, including an account of the beginning of Rezanov's ill- fated romance with Dona Concepcion, the daughter of Spanish commandante Jose Arguello. The visit to San Francisco also saw the establishment of the settlement of Ross and of the Russian fort on the California coast in 1812. The handsome plates were engraved after sketches by William Gottlief Tilesius von Tilenau, who accompanied Langsdorff and Rezanov on the voyage. Three plates relate to California, including what is purported to be the first printed view of the Presidio of San Francisco (this plate was not included in the London edition); three plates relate to Alaska, five to Japan, and eight to the Marquesas Islands. Substantial botanical collections were made during the voyage, and Langsdorff was the primary collector. STREETER SALE 3504. WICKERSHAM 6243. SABIN 38895. BORBA DE MORAES, p.388. HILL 968. HOWES L81.

        HOLOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED PENNED on SUPERB NAPOLEONIC WATERMARKED PAPER by JOHANNOT.

      Paris: September 29, 1812., 1812.. Fine. - Approximately 110 words penned on 9-1/2 inch high by 7-1/2 inch wide creamy white Napoleonic watermarked paper. Addressed to "Monsieur L'Administrateur", the author acknowledges receipt of the administrator's letter appointing Mr. Bobone to the position of overseer of declarations at Port Maurice "vous m'avez fait l'honneur de m'ecrire le 26 de ce mois, l'annonce de la nomination qui vient d'etre faire, sur votre proposition, de M. Bobone a la place de Receveur aux declarations au Bureau principal de Port Maurice...." Signed "C. Cornetto". The letter is penned on Napoleonic watermarked paper with a large portrait of Napoleon Bonaparte (4 inches in diameter) watermarked in blind on the cover sheet within an oval border with the legend "Napoleon Empereur des Francais, Roi d'Italie" and with the large 4 inch in diameter watermark of the imperial eagle in blind on the attached blank leaf. The papermaker's name "F. Johannot" is marked in blind across both pages. The letter is folded vertically and horizontally with some minor creases to the bottom right corners. A thin strip of clear archival quality document tape adheres to the inner edge of the last blank page, lightly obscuring the letter "a" in the papermaker's watermarked name. Near fine. <p>From the collection of James Ludovic Lindsay, 26th Earl of Crawford and 9th Earl of Balcarres, with his attractive "Bibliotheca Lindesiana" stamp centered at the bottom with the words framing an oval depiction of an eagle over a crown and with a crown pictured above the oval frame. There is a manuscript number noted beside it.<p>The British astronomer and politician James Ludovic Lindsay, 26th Earl of Crawford and 9th Earl of Balcarres was a noted collector of books and manuscripts. Starting with his father's substantial library as a base Lindsay went on to assemble one of the largest private libraries of his time, the Bibliotheca Lindesiana. Although reversals of fortune forced him to sell much of his rare book library, Lindsay continued to collect manuscripts, letters and documents from the French Revolutionary era.<p>F. Johannot manufactured his watermarked paper at the Johannot Mill in Annonay, France. The paper historian Dard Hunter claimed that the Johannot Mill created the finest watermarking of the 19th century.

        Erster Schreib und Lese Unterricht nach der Graser'schen Unterrichts-Methode

      Lithographed title & 8 lithographed plates. 8 pp. of letterpress text & 8 pp. of lithographed text. Small oblong 8vo, orig. blue silk cloth, covers with gilt border & central device in gilt. Munich: 1812. First edition of this extremely early lithographic work; it is very rare with WorldCat locating only two copies (BL and BSB). The invention of lithography about 1800 was particularly suitable for the creation of handwriting and penmanship manuals, having many advantages over printed and engraved books. The eight lithographed pages of text reproduce handwriting and the eight plates - again, all lithographed - depicts a series of letter forms. Graser (1766-1841), was a prominent Bavarian educator and reformer of teaching methods; his influence and ideas extended to Russia, Britain, and the United States. He made contributions to new methods of reading and handwriting and also was involved in developing new techniques for the instruction of deaf-mutes. Fine copy from the Wittelsbach library of the dukes and kings of Bavaria. ? Twyman, Early Lithographed Books, pp. 18-43. Graser: A.D.B., Vol. 9, pp. 584-85.

        Experiences sur le principe de la vie

      Paris: D'Hautel, 1812. Le Gallois, Jean Julien César (1770-1814). Expériences sur le principe de la vie, notamment sur celui des mouvemens du coeur, et sur le si?ge de ce principe . . . 8vo. [6], xxiv, 364, [2, errata]pp. Folding engraved plate. Paris: Chez d’Hautel, 1812. 192 x 124 mm. Paste paper boards ca. 1812, light wear, label with title in manuscript pasted to spine. Minor occasional spotting, but very good. First Edition. Le Gallois conducted a series of physiological experiments exploring the mechanism of respiration, in which he determined that respiration is controlled by a respiratory center in the medulla oblongata—the first time that “an area of brain substance . . . having a specific function had been defined accurately by experiment” (Clarke and Jacyna, Nineteenth-Century Origins of Neuroscientific Concepts, p. 246). Le Gallois also developed a primitive isolated heart-lung preparation in rabbits (illustrated in the plate to the present work), and was the first to suggest the possibility of a heart-lung machine: “If the place of the heart could be supplied by injection, and if, for the regular continuance of this injection, there could be furnished a quantity of arterial blood, whether natural or artificially formed . . . then life might be indefinitely maintained” (quoted in Fye, p. 599).

        Instruction sur les soupes économiques, avec trois planches en taille douce

      24 pages, [1] feuillet A Paris, de l'imprimerie impériale, 1812, in-8, 24 pages, [1] feuillet d'errata, 3 planches, broché, couverture d'attente muette bleue de l'époque, 3 planches gravées sur cuivre reproduisant des fourneaux économiques, dont 2 signées par Moisy, dessinateur et graveur. Intéressante et rare plaquette officielle qui démontre l'intérêt du gouvernement impérial pour les actions émanant des sociétés de bienfaisance : cette impression reprend en effet partiellement un texte publié la même année, sous le même titre, par la Société philanthropique (Imprimerie d'Everat, au moins 6 éditions parues en 1812). L'ouvrage décrit la préparation de la soupe et la construction des fourneaux permettant l'économie du bois, d'après le modèle du comte de Rumfort. En page 8 est reproduit un bon qui était imprimé sur demi-cartes, "pour tenir moins de place dans la poche", donnant droit à une portion de soupe de légumes distribuée par la Société philanthropique. Cette dernière distribuait ses "soupes populaires" depuis 6 fourneaux en activité dans la capitale : enclos de la Trinité, rue Grénelat ; Sainte-Athanase, vieille rue du Temple ; rue du Crucifix ; rue Saint-Bernard au Faubourg Saint-Antoine ; rue du Fer-à-Moulin au Faubourg Saint-Marcel ; et rue Saint-Dominique au Gros-Caillou. Joli exemplaire, tel que paru et non rogné. Intérieur frais. Bitting, 568.

        Rudiments of Landscape Drawing

      London - R Ackermann, 1812 Book. GOOD ONLY due to. Hardcover. First edition.. The first edition of this instructional work. With thirteen plates of illustrations and a final plate of colour swatches. Seven of the plates are hand coloured. Lacking half of the title page, information of publisher and publication date taken from Copac. This is a scarce work of Pyne's, who wrote several educational works such as Etchings of Rustic Figures for the Embellishment of Landscape and Microcosm, or a Picturesque Delineation of the Arts, Agriculture and Manufactures of Great Britain. William Henry Pyne was an English writer, illustrator and painter. His most successful work was his The Costume of Great Britain. This work explains the rudiments of landscape drawing and watercolour. The text explains the 'general rules' and 'observations' before delving into the technical side of drawing. Each plate demonstrates a certain technique, which is explained in the accompanying text. Techniques explored include perspective outline, shadows, directions for shadows, colouring and times of day. Condition: In a quarter calf bindingwith paper covered boards. Externally, worn. Rear joint and hinge have failed with the rear board detached but present. Boards and spine are very rubbed with some loss to the head and tail of spine. Front hinge is slightly strained but firm. Title page is defective with half missing. As is front endpaper. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are slightly age toned with scattered spots and handling marks throughout. Overall: GOOD ONLY due to rear board..

        Neue militairische Situations=und Post=Carte von Polen und Preussen von I.E. Kinittel. Nouvelle Carte militaire et routiere de la Pologne et de la Prusse par I.E. Knittel.

      1812 - Nüurnberg: Friedrich Campe, 1812. Original colour. Dissected and laid on linen as issued, total 580 x 885mm. Minor splits in linen at folds. A separate-issue map of the Duchy of Warsaw as the Prussians and Russians occupied the country after Napoleon's disastrous retreat from Moscow. It places emphasis on the post roads, which would have been the main lines of communication for the occupying army. At the beginning of the Napoleonic Wars the Polish people saw Bonaparte as the best chance for them to regain their country after the three Partitions inflicted on them by Austria, Russia and Prussia. Polish Legions fought with the French in Europe, Egypt and the West Indies, and were rewarded with the creation of the Duchy of Warsaw in 1807. However, as Napoleon's army fled from Moscow, the Russians followed, overrunning the Duchy and occupying it until the Congress of Vienna (1815) divided it between Russia and Prussia. This map is rare: we have traced only one example on the market in recent years.

        The sons of St. Dominick: a dialogue between a Protestant and a Catholic, on the occasion of the late defence of the pastoral letter, of the Presbytery in Baltimore.

      Baltimore: Pr. for Bernard Dornin, 1812. 8vo (21.5 cm; 8.5"). 96 pp. Humor, vigor, and underlying deep seriousness all characterize this dialogue defending Dominicans, Baltimore's St. Mary's seminary, and Catholicism in general against attacks by the Presbyterian Church. While "Protestant" is a bit of an intellectual bumpkin next to the notably urbane "Catholic," he is granted space to swing his sword with a will, bringing up tough questions and following up hard on the answers. Many Protestant canards about Catholics are thus put to rest by combat: Yes, Catholics may and do read the Bible; yes, there can be and have been Catholic "republics"; no, Catholics don't worship "idols"; no, the pope is not scheduled to come to the U.S. and make the president kiss his toe. The nature of Catholic schooling, the status of the Apocrypha, papal infallibility, and more are all dramatically explained in the main text, and appendices treat of many of the main headings directly. => Though produced by one "side," this is a good introduction to the long-lived issues and rhetoric of Protestant–Catholic conflict in America, as well as a good explication of much Catholic doctrine and practice.    Written by Louis William Valentine DuBourg, president of St. Mary's Seminary, in collaboration with Bishop Simon Bruté de Remur.         Parsons 417; Shaw & Shoemaker 26780. Recent quarter off-white cloth over blue-green paper sides, old style; paper spine label. This copy is complete with the leaf in the back listing books available in 1812 from Bernard Dornin's "Roman Catholic Book Store," more than a few of which PRB&M has had in its stock over the years. It strikes us that reassembling and studying the group as a whole could be an interesting and illuminating exercise.
