        Théorie des fonctions analytiques, contenant les Principes du Calcul différentiel, dégagés de toute considération d'infiniment petits, dìévanouissans, de limites et de fluxions, et réduits à l'analyse algébrique des quantités finies. Nouvelle édition.

      Paris, M.me V.e Courcier, 1813. 1813 In-4° (265x206mm), pp. XI, (1) di errata, 383, legatura coeva m. pelle marmorizzata. Titolo in oro su tassello rosso al dorso. Esemplare assai bello, salvo qualche lieve fioritura. Seconda edizione, riveduta e aumentata, rara, del grande trattato di Lagrange sulle funzioni analitiche, stampato per la prima volta nel 1797 e destinato ad avere larghissima influenza in tutta la ricerca matematica ottocentesca e a condizionare in profondo le analisi di matematici come Cauchy, Jacobi, Weierstrass. "Cette seconde edition a plusieurs avantages sur la premiere. Elle est plus correcte ; on a mis plus d"ordre dans les matieres... Enfin on y a fait differentes additions dont les principales se trouvent dans le chapitre XIV de la seconde partie et dans le chapitre V de la troisieme". (Avertissement). "In this book, Lagrange intended to show that power series expansions are sufficient to provide differential calculus with a solid foundation. Today mathematicians are partially returning to this conception in treating the formal calculus of series. As early as 1812, however J.M.H. Wronski objected to Lagrange's claims. The subsequent opposition of Cauchy was more effective. Nevertheless, Lagrange's point of view could not be totally neglected. Completed by convergence considerations, it dominated the study of the functions of a complex variable throughout the nineteenth century". (DSB, VII, p. 570) Il Lagrange (Torino, 1736-Parigi, 1813), fra i matematici più insigni del suo tempo, Professore prima alla Scuola d'Artiglieria di Torino, poi, dal 1766, Direttore dell'Accademia delle Scienze di Berlino. In seguito insegnò a Parigi, alla Sorbona e alla Scuola Politecnica e fu membro dell'Institut de France e del Bureau des Longitudes, venendo anche insignito della Légion d'Honneur.

No. (2) is the equally rare offprint of Magendie?s report on his continuing experiments with emetics. Magendie proved, against the then-current theory of Haller, that the stomach was passive, not active, in vomiting. This is essentially correct; however, Magendie failed to observe the active role of the pyloric end of the stomach in his account. Olmsted, Magendie, pp. 51-53; he does not cite these offprints in his bibliography.

Bentley 499. - Cox II,285. - Abbey 719. - Sabin 91075. - Titelauflage der zweiten, erweiterten und veränderten Auflage von 1806. Die erste Ausgabe erschien 1796. - Eines der wichtigsten Büchern gegen die Sklaverei und die Kolonialpolitik Europas in Südamerika. Der aus einer englisch-holländischen Familie stammende Stedman (1744-1797) verpflichtete sich im Jahre 1772 freiwillig als Offizier einer holländischen Einheit, die zur Bekämpfung der marodierenden Banden entlaufener Sklaven in Surinam aufgeboten wurde. Beeindruckt vom Reichtum und der Schönheit Surinams, geschockt vom Verhalten der Kolonisten und Sklavenhalter, bewegt sich Stedmans Bericht zwischen Himmel und Hölle. Im Verlaufe des fünfjährigen Aufenthaltes entwickelt er eine aufgeklärte Haltung gegenüber der Sklaverei, die er als Institution nicht abgeschafft sehen will, der er aber den Schutz des Individuums, unabhängig von Rasse, Geschlecht und sozialer Herkunft, gegenüberstellt. Stedman schrieb seinen Bericht 10 Jahre nach seiner Rückkehr nach Europa für Joseph Johnson, einem Londoner Verleger, der in engem Kontakt zu der publizistischen Elite der englischen Aufklärung stand. Der Erfolg seines Buches, bis 1830 erschienen weit über 20 verschiedene Ausgaben in 6 Sprachen, ist in erster Linie der schriftstellerischen Fähigkeit Stedmans, seiner politischen und sozialen Haltung, und weniger dem geografischen Interesse an Holländisch Guyana zuzuschreiben. Die Illustrationen wurden zum Teil vom englischen Dichter und Maler William Blake nach Vorzeichnungen von Stedman gestochen. Die Tafeln mit Darstellungen von Pflanzen, Tieren, Indianern sowie mehrere Tafeln, die Bestrafungen von schwarzen Sklaven zeigen. Eindrücklich ist das von Stedman gezeichnete und von Francesco Bartolozzi gestochene Selbstporträt, das den Autor nach einem Gefecht in nachdenklicher Haltung, fast androgyn wirkend, zusammen mit einem Toten Sklaven vor einer brennenden Eingeborenensiedlung zeigt. Die letzte Tafel des Werkes, von William Blake wahrscheinlich nicht nur gestochen, sondern auch gezeichnet, zeigt die allegorische Darstellung der drei nackten Schönheiten 'Europe supported by Africa & America'. - Vorsätze schwach gebräunt. Schönes, sehr breitrandiges Exemplar in geschmackvollen neuen Einbänden. - Second issue of the second enlarged and revised edition of 1806. The first edition was published in 1796. One of the most important books against slavery and the European colonial politics in South America. Born in a n English-Dutch family, Stedman (1744-1797) volunteered in 1772 as an officer of a Dutch military unit to help put down a slave and maroon rebellion in Surinam. Impressed by the beauty and opulence of Surinam and shocked by the mistreatment of slaves by their masters, Stedman's account balances between heaven and hell. During his five year stay, he developed an enlightened attitude towards slavery, which he does not want to see abolished. He confronts slavery with the protection of the individual, independent from race, gender and social background. Stedman wrote his report ten years after he came back to Europe for Joseph Johnson, a London publisher with close contacts to the learned elite of the British Enlightment. His book was such a success that it was published in more than 20 different editions and in six languages. This success was due more to Stedman's literary talent and his political and social views than his interest to describe the geography of Dutch Guyana. The illustrations are partly engraved by the English poet and artist after Stedman's original drawings. The plates show illustrations of plants, animals, Indians and even slave tortures. Stedman's impressive self-portrait is signed by Francesco Bartolozzi. It shows the author after a combat in a contemplative attitude, almost androgynous, together with a dead slave in front of an indigenous village. The last plate of this book, probably drawn and engraved by Blake shows three naked beauties being an emblematic representation of 'Europe supported by Africa & America'. Endpapers lightly browned. Very large margined copy with very elegant new bindings. [14 Warenabbildungen bei antiquariat.de]

        Allgemeine Lehrsätze in Beziehung auf die im verkehrten Verhältnisse des Quadrats der Entfernung wirkenden Anziehungs- und Abstossungs-Kräfte.Leipzig: Weidmannschen Buchhandlung, 1840. First edition.

      First separate edition, <b>Gauss's own personal copy</b>, of "the first systematic treatment of potential theory as a mathematical topic, [which] recognized the necessity of existence theorems in that field, and reached a standard of rigor that remained unsurpassed for more than a century" (DSB V 306). Norman 882.<br/><br/> Gauss's ideas on potential theory developed over several decades, beginning with his work on geodesy. In 1813 he had published <i>Theoria attractionis corporum sphaeroidicorum ellipticorum homogeneorum methodus nova tractatus</i>, which used several early results in potential theory to calculate the gravity at different points of the earth's surface (although Gauss did not use the term 'potential' at that time). Almost two decades later he began his collaboration with Wilhelm Weber on geomagnetism. In <i>Allgemeine Theorie der Erdmagnetismus</i> (1839), his general theory of terrestrial magnetism, Gauss determined the magnetic force at the earth's surface by expressing the magnetic potential as the sum of a converging series of spherical functions (Gauss retained only the first few terms as an approximation). <br/><br/> "A year after the publication of his general theory of earth magnetism, Gauss published a systematic presentation of the mathematical tool he had used in that work, the potential. Here Gauss formally introduced the term 'potential' to designate the function from which the components of forces varying as the inverse square of the distance can be derived. He wrote the function as <i>V = &Sigma; µ/r</i>, which expresses the action at any point of a collection of point 'masses' or, in general, 'agents', and he developed a collection of theorems concerning the behavior of this function. The significance of <i>V</i> is that its properties are the 'key to the attracting or repelling forces' of nature. Potential theory applies to the phenomena of nature described by inverse-square forces between particles, to the phenomena of gravitation, electricity and magnetism. Gauss even considered its application to electrodynamic phenomena, since Ampère's force between current elements depends on the inverse square of the distance; but the action of this force is complicated by the directionality of currents, and Gauss did not treat it here and only spoke of discussing it in a later paper, which he never did. <br/><br/> "Gauss showed that despite the striking differences of the observed phenomena of gravitation, electricity and magnetism, their mathematical description draws on a common body of theorems. Potential theory provided mathematical methods of impressive generality: by studying the behavior of one function, abstracted from any one domain of phenomena, physicists could learn at once the mathematical structures relating the phenomena belonging to several domains. The conservation of energy principle, enunciated soon after Gauss's potential theory, made the potential an even more important aid in developing physical laws" (Jungnickel & McCormmach, pp. 68-9). <br/><br/> This copy is from the personal library of Gauss. It was sold as a duplicate in 1951 by the Göttingen State and University Library, at which time it passed into private hands. <br/><br/> The present work is an offprint (or separatum) from Vol. 4 (1840) of <i>Resultate aus den Beobachtungen des magnetischen Vereins</i>, a six volume work published from 1836 to 1841, containing fifteen papers by Gauss and twenty-three by Weber. It was quickly translated into French (Liouville's <i>Journal de Mathematiques</i> VII 1842) and English (Taylor's <i>Scientific Memoirs</i> 1842). Gauss himself lectured on the results contained in this paper at Göttingen on 26 March 1840. <br/><br/> C. Jungnickel & R. McCormmach, <i>Intellectual Mastery of Nature.

        A Letter to the Rt. Hon. Lord Grenville Occasioned by Some Observations

      of his Lordship on the East India Company's Establishment for the Education of their Civil Servants, First Edition, 38pp 8vo, modern half calf antique style, good, London, Johnson, 1813. Goldsmith 20734. Photograph available on request. The great political economist and population theorist Malthus was an important professional educator. He taught at Haileybury College as Professor of History and Economics from 1805 until his death in 1834. The College had been attached as "a baneful institution" by Granville since it appeared to be so specialist in training the East India Company's civil service that it simply formed its pupils "into a caste". Grenville's case was that the East India Company should draw its officers from several different public schools, not train specialist force. Malthus came to the defence of his beloved College with this specific rejoinder: "A public school and three years residence at one of our universities may be decidedly the best education for an English statesman; but for an Indian statesman, who must be acquired with the oriental languages, and habituated to Indian customs and manners before he loses his pliability, there is evidently not time for such a course, the oriental languages are best taught in the East; but languages alone are not a sufficient qualification for the administration of the British government in India, and general knowledge is best taught in the west." Malthus moreover defends the very wide range of the curriculum devised at Haileybury. "It was imagined that some of the pursuits that contribute to form this variety were of too difficult a nature for young men of the age above mentioned [sixteen--seventeen]; and the subject of political economy was considered as one. I confess that I once thought so myself. But the particular examples, which I have witnessed, of distinguished progress in this study at the East India College, and the numerous instances of very fair progress, enable me to say with confidence that a youth of seventeen (and this is the most usual age at which the study is begun, as it is generally confined to the last year or year and a half) with a good understanding, is fully able to comprehend the principles of political economy, and is rarely inclined to think them either too difficult or too dull to engage his attention." Finally, and most significantly in terms of the history of educational innovation, Malthus describes the procedure of a competitive examination, as practiced at the College: "The answers are, in all cases which will admit of it, given in writing in the presence of the professors, and without the possibility of a reference to books. After the examination in any particular department is over, the professor in that department reviews at his leisure all the papers which he has received, and places, as nearly as he can, each individual in the numerical order of his relative merit, and in certain divisions implying his degree of positive merit. These arrangements are all subject to the control of the whole collegiate body. They require considerable time and attention, and are executed with scrupulous care and, I firmly believe, with singular impartiality."

        Golfe de Genes (Golfo di Genova).

      Dalla "Carta Amministrativa del Regno D'Italia", edita a Milano nel 1813 (una grande carta composta da pi? fogli applicati su tela, ciascuno di cm 54 x 67 circa per un perimetro totale di cm 1400 x 1100 circa), bella carta del territorio ligure, comprendente oltre che le aree interne tutta la costa da Tinetto e Porto Venere a Bordighera, composta da un foglio, numerato come foglio XVII sulla parte incisa, e con il numero 17 al retro della tela. Benedetto e Gaudenzio Bordiga furono incisori e cartografi, originari della Valsesia e attivi a Milano nella prima met? del XIX secolo, un periodo caratterizzato da alterne vicende storico politiche, in cui realizzarono un discreto corpus incisorio. L'opera pi? importante cui contribuirono fu la "Carte g?n?rale du Th??tre de la Guerre en Italie", una grande carta commissionata, nel 1797 dallo Stato Maggiore dell'Armata Francese di Napoleone, al capo battaglione Bacler d'Albe, capo del Gabinetto Cartografico Francese: la carta, celebrativa della prima campagna d'Italia, fu in gran parte realizzata a partire da carte preesistenti, fu realizzata in cinquantaquattro fogli sotto la direzione di Giacomo Pinchetti e fu appunto incisa dai fratelli Benedetto e Gaudenzio Bordiga. Gaudenzio Bordiga (Camasco, Varallo, 10 febbraio 1773 - Milano, 18 gennaio 1837), segu? a Varallo studi letterari e di disegno. Stabilitosi a Milano con il fratello Benedetto, fu capo incisore dell'Istituto Geografico Militare e mantenne tale carica anche dopo l'occupazione austriaca. Senza la collaborazione del fratello Bendetto, Gaudenzio disegn?, e a volte incise, varie carte geografiche militari ("Carta delle stazioni militari in Italia", 1804; "Carta militare del Regno d'Etruria e del principato di Lucca", 1806) e scrisse opere di erudizione storico - artistica ("Notizie intorno alle opere di Gaudenzio Ferrari, pittore e plasticatore", Milano, G. Pirotta, 1821; "Storia e guida del Sacro Monte di Varallo", Varallo, 1830). Molto buono lo stato di conservazione.

        Engravings: [School of the soldier, School of the company, School of the platoon, School of the battalion, War of 1812 Military Drills

      [NY]: NP, [1813]. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine. RARE WAR OF 1812 PERIOD AMERICAN MILITARY MANUAL circa 1813. Presumed 1st edition. Title from type-written sheet found inside at front of book. 41 engraved plates. First edition, in very good condition, with new leather spine and corners preserving original boards and endpapers. The volume consists of 41 engraved plates [numbered 1 to 40, but including no. 35(1) and 35(2), for a total of 41], without any title page or text (none were ever included, as far as we can determine). While the plates are bound together, it is not clear if they were originally issued in book form. Near fine condition., This copy belonged to a D. Hale, with his signature on the front free endpaper. The plates, sixteen of which are folded, show U.S. infantrymen performing military drills. Each bears a caption heading, in this order: I - Regiment Formed in the Habitual Order of Battle (Stout&#39;s name is printed in the plate ); II-VI - School of the Soldier; VII - 8 - School of the Company; IX - School of the Platoon; 10 - XXVI - School of the Battalion; XXVII - XL - Evolutions of the Line. While the plates are not dated, a study of the uniforms depicted indicates a date of approximately 1813. Since Stout was a New York City engraver at the probable date of publication, we assume the place of publication was New York. Rare. Appears similar to only other three copies we could locate at Brown University, Columbia University and University of California including the lack of title page and text. Not in Shaw and Shoemaker.

Volume I: minor chips to pages 143/144 and 157/158; and a few minor creases to gatherings M and N. Volume II: tiny tear to rear flyleaf, small tear to outer margin of page 77. Some very minor scattered spotting. Volume III: small repair to upper corner of page 129, repair to lower corner of page 137/138, tiny pin hole to page 259/260. A beautiful, clean and very attractive set. Gilson A3. Austen&#146;s second work, Pride and Prejudice, is her most famous and one of the most popular books ever written. The unforgettable story of the Bennet sisters quickly sold out of the first printing, and editions of this 1813 original are very scarce. Austen was highly praised by Sir Walter Scott, among others, for her proficiency in describing human emotions and the complexity of relationships. Pride and Prejudice established Austen as one of the most relevant and important female writers of her time, and it&#146;s popularity is a prime example of why she is so highly regarded even today.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Fine. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall.

        ADVICE TO A FRIEND By Simon Patrick, D.D. Chaplain in Ordinary to His Majesty. The Fourth Edition.

      [16], 268, [4 ad's] pages. Full sheep, label to spine. 12mo. Spine expertly repaired, but binding generally rubbed and worn; else very good. Mary Ann Kilner's copy with her signature to endpaper, the author of many 18th century classic children's books, including, Memoirs of a Peg-Top, Jemima Placid, and The Adventures of a Pincushion. An inscription on the front endpaper in her hand reads: 'Exchanged Books with Mrs Worst at her request, June 19. 1813.' Another inscription on verso of same endpaper; 'E. and D Kilner Left to them by their Beloved Mary Ann when on her Death bed September 1816.' Loosely laid into the book is a note which reads, 'Advice to a Friend Simon Patrick D D written in 1673. 4th Edition 1681. Belonged first to Mrs Worst, then to M. A. Kilner. Then to E. & D. Kilner.' Mary Ann Kilner did not die until 1831, so the inscription by E. and D. Kilner is a little confusing. However. Mary Ann's signature is genuine, as is her inscription. The identity of E. & D. Kilner, could be her sister-in-law Dorothy who survived her by five years, and her daughter Eliza. Purchased from a descendent of the Kilner family.

        THE GIAOUR, A FRAGMENT OF A TURKISH TALE. [bound with] THE SIEGE OF CORINTH. [bound with] THE PRISONER OF CHILLON. [bound with] POEMS. [bound with] POEMS ON DOMESTIC CIRCUMSTANCES. [bound with] MONODY ON THE DEATH OF . . . SHERIDAN. [bound with] THE LAMENT OF TASSO. [bound with] MANFRED. [bound with] MAZEPPA. [bound with] BEPPO. [bound with] THE AGE OF BRONZE

      London: Printed by T. Davison, For John Murray (except as indicated), 1813. FIRST EDITIONS of "Corinth," "Chillon," "Poems," "Manfred" (second issue), and "Mazeppa." Third Editions of "Giaour," "Tasso,&quo. With an Especially Fine Painting and 11 Works,Including Five Firsts, by Byron 216 x 140 mm (8 1/2 x 5 1/2"). 11 separately published works bound in one volume. ATTRACTIVE BLACK STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, rebacked with very great skill in the style of the period, covers framed with simple gilt rules, decorated raised bands flanked by gilt rules, spine panels with blindstamped foliate cornerpieces and gilt hexagonal centerpiece, turn-ins with decorative gilt roll and unusual delicate floral and foliate gilt border on purple silk doublures and free endleaves, all edges gilt. In a (slightly worn) fleece-lined cloth slipcase. WITH A VERY FINE FORE-EDGE PAINTING OF THE CASTLE OF CHILLON. Four engraved plates. Verso of front endpaper with book label of "HNF" (Helmut N. Friedlaender). First Editions Club Byron Bibliography, 19a, 16, 14, 21b, 25. A hint of rubbing to leather, leaves adjacent to plates a little offset, a dozen leaves a bit foxed or soiled, light uniform browning in one publication and to edges of two others, but A VERY ATTRACTIVE COPY, the binding quite lustrous and with no significant wear, the painting especially well preserved, and the various texts mostly quite clean, fresh, and bright. Very possibly a piece of work that is contemporaneous with the binding here, the fore-edge painting on this volume is among the finest we have offered for sale. Partly because the thickness of the book has put at the artist's disposal an ample amount of space, there is considerable precisely realized detail almost everywhere. The Castle dominating the background provides an example, as one can glimpse a subtle reflection of the structure in the lake it fronts as well as see roof tiles on the various castle towers. Eight persons are walking along the wooded pier that occupies the right third of the scene, and at least five of these are individuated (a servant woman and her son, a gentleman in pantaloons, and an aristocratic couple smartly dressed in expensive clothes, including straw hats). In addition, the two commercial vessels in the painting are depicted with enough specificity that one can determine something significant about their occupants and the activities they are involved in. Over the whole scene the colors are rich, and the shading is extraordinarily sophisticated. Although this item is of considerable interest as a finely executed fore-edge painting, it also comprises a substantial collection of first and early editions of works by Byron, ranging from youthful pieces like "The Giaour," exotic and wildly romantic, to the much more lighthearted "Beppo," written during Byron's happier years in Venice. "Poems on Domestic Circumstances," which appears midway through our volume, alludes obscurely to the dark and mysterious scandals that caused his divorce and his final departure from England. All of the Byron items bound in this volume are textually complete. Our copies of "Corinth," "Chillon," "Manfred," "Mazeppa, " and "Poems" are identical with the described first printings in the First Editions Club Byron Bibliography, with the exceptions that all are bound without the half title, and "Chillon," "Manfred," and "Mazeppa" lack the final leaf or two of ads. In addition, the title page for "Manfred" includes the quotation (probably added early in the press run) that comprises a second issue point, and our final leaf of "Poems" has the Notes transferred to what is supposed to be a blank verso, and an unlisted dedicatory verse on the recto.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM JOHN TRUMBULL TO LORD SIDMOUTH, ACCOMPANIED BY TRUMBULL&#39;S NOTES ON THEIR RESULTING CONVERSATION ON THE WAR OF 1812]

      [London]. June 1813.. 3pp. Both sheets held together with period wax and a seal tamp. Quarto. Old fold lines, very faint. Fine. Letter sent by Trumbull to Sidmouth requesting "the honour of a few minutes conversation at any hour which his Lordship shall please to name." The second sheet bears Sidmouth&#39;s cordial response, naming the time and place. It does not appear that Trumbull was acting in kind of official capacity but was, perhaps, merely paying an informal social visit on an influential friend. On the verso of Sidmouth&#39;s response, Trumbull has made notes on their conversation. His notes read, in part: "Conversation turned on the destruction of small towns on the Chesapeake. I expressed my high satisfaction that the officers & troops in Canada, instead of retaliating the threats held out in Gen&#39;l Hull&#39;s proclamation, of giving no quarters & the conduct of the commanding officer of Fort Niagra, in firing hot balls upon the Village of Newark - had conducted the war with humanity & restrained the savages in a great degree from their usual habits of indiscriminate destruction & burning...His [Lordship] made many professions of gen&#39;l good will to the U.S. - regretted the war which had been forced upon [Great Britain] by the unreasonable pretensions of the [American Government], etc." Trumbull served as John Jay&#39;s secretary during the peace negotiations with Britain that followed the American Revolution. Sidmouth had served as a Speaker in the House of Commons during Trumbull&#39;s time as Jay&#39;s secretary, and the two may have become friendly at that time. Likewise, Trumbull spent significant time in London for his painting career. When Trumbull called on Sidmouth in 1813, Sidmouth was in the beginning of his lengthy term as Britain&#39;s Home Secretary. An interesting piece for those interested in both Trumbull and the War of 1812.

        A Voyage round the World, in the years 1800, 1801, 1802, 1803 and 1804: in which the Author visited Madeira, the Brazils, Cape of Good Hope, the English Settlements of Botany Bay and Norfolk Island: and the principal Islands in the Pacific Ocean. With a continuation of their History to the present period

      London, A. Maxwell, 1813. Second and best edition of an important Pacific voyage account; 4to; pp. xv, 516; Narrative of Le Geographe and Naturaliste, Appendix; Quarto cloth binding with title label, half title page; entirely uncut, bound in later boards; foxing to first and last few pages, endpapers browned, bookplate, early twentieth-century signature of previous owner on title-page; marking to boards, paper worn on boards; corners bumped and worn, edges of boards slightly bumped, head and tail of spine bumped. THE FIRST WORK TO DESCRIBE NEW SOUTH WALES FROM A COMMERCIAL POINT OF VIEW. Turnbull and John Buyers purchased the ship Margaret and fitted her out for a trading venture in the Pacific. In February 1801 they arrived in Sydney and Turnbull provides considerable detail on the township, agriculture, and trade. "John Turnbull introduced Australia to the world as a field for private commercial endeavour and emigration... His account is the first to describe New South Wales from a commercial point of view... As a key work in the promotion of Australia as a field for emigration and trade, it makes a valuable addition to any collection..." (Wantrup).The work was first published in 1805, and the second edition adds substantially to all chapters, revising and adding to them in the light of the eight years that had passed since the first edition. Further, there is additional chapter on New South Wales; a new account of New Zealand with a description of the destruction of the ship Boyd; a narrative of Baudin&#39;s expedition that Turnbull states he had recieved seven years earlier from one of the participants (this section also "contains important information on seventeenth-century Dutch landfalls at Australia" - Forbes); and a new description of the Fiji Islands. Of substantial interest as an account of early Pacific trading, Turnbull&#39;s book describes sojourns at Hawaii and the Society Islands, "where [he] set up business curing hogs with salt obtained in Hawaii" (Forbes). When the Margaret visited Hawaii in 1802-3 "they learned of Kamehameha&#39;s planned invasion of the island of Kauai, traded at Hawaii, and were briefly off Lahaina, Maui. This account contains interesting comments of Kamehameha&#39;s &#39;Brick Palace&#39; built by Botany Bay men at that village" (Forbes). Turnbull is also credited with discovering three islands in the Tuamotus. References: Ferguson, 570; Forbes, 438 (and annotation to no. 367); Wantrup, 52. Provenance: Sydney J. Cook (early twentieth-century signature on title-page)
