        Journal of a Tour in Iceland in the Summer of 1809

      Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme & Brown, London 1813 - 2 volumes;[7]+cvi+369 pages; [3]+391+[15]pages (lacks folding frontispiece map in volume 1), two folding maps, 1 full page map, 2 folding plates, 3 full-page plates and some woodcut text figures. Octavo 8 1/2" x 5 1/2") Bound in half brown calf, raised bands, gilt titles, marbled boards. Second edition with additions. Sir William Jackson Hooker KH FRS was an English systematic botanist and organizer, and botanical illustrator. He held the post of Regius Professor of Botany at Glasgow University, and was Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. He enjoyed the friendship and support of Sir Joseph Banks for his exploring, collecting and organizing work. Hooker inherited enough money to be able to travel at his own expense. His first botanical expedition—at the suggestion of Sir Joseph Banks—was to Iceland, in the summer of 1809. The specimens he collected, along with his notes and drawings, were destroyed by fire on the homeward voyage; an incident in which he nearly lost his life. His good memory, however, aided him to publish an account of the island, and of its inhabitants and flora; his Tour in Iceland, 1809, was privately circulated in 1811 and reprinted in 1813.Settling at Halesworth, Suffolk, he devoted himself to the formation of his herbarium, which became of worldwide renown among botanists. In 1816 the British Jungermanniae, his first scientific work, was published. This was succeeded by a new edition of William Curtis's Flora Londinensis, for which he wrote the descriptions (1817–1828); by a description of the Plantae cryptogamicae of Alexander von Humboldt and Aimé Bonpland; by the Muscologia, a very complete account of the mosses of Britain and Ireland, prepared in conjunction with Thomas Taylor (1818); and by his Musci exotici (2 vols., 1818–1820), devoted to new foreign mosses and other cryptogamic plants. Hooker succeeded in convincing the British government that botanists should be appointed to their expeditions. While his works were in progress his herbarium received large and valuable additions from all parts of the globe, and his position as a botanist was thus vastly improved. He was made a Knight of the Royal Guelphic Order and a Knight Bachelor in 1836, and in 1841 he was appointed director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, on the resignation of William Townsend Aiton. Under his direction the gardens expanded from 10 to 75 acres, with an arboretum of 270 acres, many new glass-houses were erected, and a museum of economic botany was established. He was engaged on the Synopsis filicum with John Gilbert Baker when he contracted a throat infection then epidemic at Kew. Condition: Rebacked with attractive leather and gold stamped. Original marbled boards. Previous owner's book plates on front paste downs and end papers, some minor foxing at back end papers. A very good copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Horloge marine à tourbillon dont l'échappement est à remontoir indépendant et à force constante, et montre à longitudes, à doubles secondes, à équation et à quantième annuel, exécutées par M. Breguet, pour M. de Sommariva.

      [Paris, vers 1813]. ____ Très rare prospectus publicitaire d'Abraham Louis Breguet (1747-1823). Il y décrit la "Sommariva", une pendule avec montre "à tourbillon, force constante, et spiral s'ouvrant concentriquement." Le tourbillon est l'invention de Breguet la plus importante : il permet d'équilibrer les différentes pièces qui se trouvent dans une montre. Ce mécanisme impose une rotation à l'ensemble échappement-balancier, qui l'oblige à prendre toutes les positions, ceci en plus de compenser la gravité, permettrait également d'améliorer la lubrification en évitant que les huiles ne se figent. La montre décrite ici portait cette inscription : "Ouvrage de Bréguet, commandé par M. de Sommariva, sans limitation de temps, de dépense, de volume et de composition, commencé en 1802 et terminé en 1813. Effort de l'artiste pour faire de cette machine un monument de l'état de l'horlogerie au commencement du 19e siècle." Cette pendule a été construite à un seul exemplaire et on ne sait pas aujourd'hui si elle existe toujours. Illustré par une gravure sur cuivre. Nous n'avons pas trouvé d'autres exemplaires conservés dans les bibliothèques.*-------* A very rare advertising brochure by Abraham Louis Breguet (1747-1823). He describes the "Sommariva". This pendulum, his masterpiece, was built to a single copy and it is not known today whether it still exists. Illustrated by a copper engraving. We have not found any copy in OCLC, nor Ccfr.

Various maps show the knowledge or imagination of early geographers such as Ptolemy, Strabo, Pomponius Mela, Herodotus and Isidore of Seville, while the text deals exhaustively with the history of geography and geographers, however obscure. As a test for example it is interesting to see that Cosmas Indicopleustes is discussed at some length.Pascal-François Gossellin (1751-1830) travelled widely through Europe as a young man, while his parents encouraged him to learn the ways of business. He joined the Royal Council of Commerce in 1784, and later the central administration under Louis XVI. He continued to travel, and developed friendships with Necker and Voltaire, both then in Switzerland.However he was always pulled towards the world of learning and especially the study of ancient geography. In 1790 he won a competition set by the Academie Royale des Inscriptions (see above) and the following year he was elected to membership.When the Revolution came he devoted himself to research for this book, analysing all the texts to which he had access. The book was published in two halves, fifteen years apart, with the second half appearing just before the restoration of the monarchy. His involvement with the world of learning included his appointment as President du conservatoire at the Bibliothèque Nationale in 1803. Some browning, as is often the case with this set.

        Le livre de tous les ménages ou l'art de conserver pendant plusieurs années, toutes les substances animales et végétales 3e édition revue et augmentée de procédés nouveaux, d'expériences et d'observations nouvelles.

      Paris, Barrois, 1813, in 8°, de XXXXVIII-176 pp., ill. d'une planche gravée se dépl., (un peu courte en marge inf.) demi-percal époque vert clair, qq. rousseurs sinon bon exemplaire avec la signature d'Appert au verso du titre. Bonne édition très augmentée, et en partie originale. Fr. N. Appert quelques temps confiseur près de Paris, gagna par son procédé de stérilisation et de conservation le prix proposé par Napoléon pour trouver une solution à la conservation des aliments pour les militaires. Mais les conditions du prix l'obligèrent à divulguer son procédé, ce qu'il fit par la présente publication. Il exploita quelques temps son brevet, mais finalement ruiné, il mourut pauvre. Toutefois les conserves connurent un énorme succès et suscitèrent la création d'industries. Tout d'abord conditionnées dans des récipients en verre, elles furent peu à peu mises dans des boîtes en fer-blanc soudé. Appert anticipe les travaux de Pasteur par sa méthode de stérilisation, et ce dernier reconnut lui-même que la "Pasteurisation" n'était rien d'autre qu'un perfectionnement de la méthode de F. N. Appert. ¶ Vicaire 35 - Bitting p.14 - Bulloch Hist. of Bacteriology, p. 44 "With his method Appert demonstrated practically the process of pasteurization, nearly fifty years before its scientific explanation" - En Français dans le texte n°220 - Oberlé n°184.

[Bound with:] Expériences faites a Londres pour perfectionner et faire connetre plus genéralement l'art de se preserver de l'action de la flamme.

      Paris: Madame Huzard (née Vallat la Chapelle), 1813. First editions, in a stunning contemporary red morocco binding, of these important and beautifully illustrated works on fire-fighting including, among other things, the invention of the first fire helmet which allowed respiration during fires and protected the fire-fighter from inhaling hot air and smoke. Both works are very rare, especially when complete with the fifth plate which is almost always missing. The 'Apparatus Aldini' was a thick mask of asbestos worn over the head; another mask made of woven iron wire was placed over the first. The device provided a measure of heat protection, provided the wearer was able to maintain the air space between the two masks and not allow the iron mask to touch the inner mask. The functionality of the mask left much to be desired, but the scientific testing by Aldini was ground breaking

        Waltz. An Apostrophic Hymn. By Horace Hornem, Esq

      London: Printed by S. Gosnell … for Sherwood, Neely, and Jones, 1813. First edition. 27, [1] pp. 4to. Full red morocco gilt by Riviere, spine gilt-lettered. Joints starting, some rubbing, bottom and fore-edge uncut; title-page lighty soiled, some light foxing. First edition. 27, [1] pp. 4to. This poem was for Byron something of an experiment, which is why he adopted a pseudonym. After a rather lukewarm reception, Byron disowned the poem entirely. A small cache of uncut copies was discovered at some time in the mid-19th century, and most surviving examples, including this one, are from this source. Ashley 1:149-50; First Edition Club/Byron 7a; Hayward 220; Wise I:71-72. Provenance: William Waldorf, Viscount Astor (armorial bookplate)
