Of more interest to Broughton, however, were the various festivals and religious ceremonies, both Hindu and Mohammedan, which he recorded in his letters with detail and sympathy" (Riddick).

Svenin, Paul; [Svin'in, Pavel Petrovich]
Philadelphia: Thomas Dobson, at the Stone House, 1813. Scarce first edition of this introduction to Russia for American readers, written and illustrated by a member of the first Russian diplomatic mission to the United States during the Napoleonic Wars. Arriving in Philadelphia in 1811, Svin'in found that few Americans had an accurate idea of his homeland. He aimed to replace the "ridiculous wonders and strange falsehoods" reported in sensational travel narratives with a more accurate and positive account of modern Russia, laying the groundwork for a potential trans-Atlantic alliance. Each chapter opens with a full-page aquatint, including images of the Kremlin, the Pashkov House, the Bronze Horseman of Peter the Great, and the Summer Garden of St. Petersburg. One image, entitled "Amusements on the Ice," features the seventy-foot-high sledding runs constructed for the Russian winter carnival: "the ball room is often abandoned for the pleasure of sliding down an ice mountain." Arguing that "no two countries bear a more striking resemblance than Russia and the United States," Svin'in observes that the thriving cities of St. Petersburg and Philadelphia were both founded "little more than a century since, from the bosom of impenetrable forests and marshes, inhabited by bears and wolves." His chapter on Kazan Cathedral underscores the religious tolerance practiced by "all the Russian sovereigns," and he favorably compares the position of Russian serfs with that of American slaves: "the Russian slave could easily find opportunities to escape from his own land, and go to live in … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hand coloured illustrated titles, 70 hand coloured engraved plates (25 in the first part, 45 in the second part). Contemporary red morocco backed red paper covered boards, covers elaborately decorated in gilt, spine with raised bands in seven compartments, green morocco lettering piece in the second the others with a repeat decoration in giltStunning hand colored illustrated monograph on mantises, stick insects, grasshoppers and related insects: among the most beautiful of 18th-century Dutch entomological books.Stoll worked with Pieter Cramer on his monumental work on butterflies, becoming its principal author after Cramer's death. Contemporary records describe him as being a clerk in the Admiralty of Amsterdam, but was evidently well regarded as an amateur entomologist and collector of specimens. The beautiful work is published by Jan Christiaan Sepp, the most acclaimed Dutch publisher of colored natural history books of the 18th century. Following the publication of Stoll's monographs on cicadas and insects from the order heteroptera, he published the present work on the mantis, grasshoppers, stick insects and others. The work includes depictions of specimens from the cabinets of Holthusien, Raye de Breukelerwaerth and other Dutch wunderkammer, with specimens from Surinam, Coromandel, Amboine, the Cape of Good Hope, Ceylon, Java, China, America and other exotic locations.Nissen ZBI 4002; Landwehr 192; Hagen, p. 199; Horn & Schenkling, p. 1193.

DUPIN, Charles
Vve Coucier & Bachelier, Paris. Demi chagrin rouge moderne. Deux ouvrages en deux volumes in quarto (252 x200 mm), xx-373-(1) pages et 11 planches / xxxv-(1 bl.)-330 pages et 17 planches (pl. 1 et 8 interverties) Dos légérement passé Édition originale des deux ouvrages contenant les principaux travaux de Dupin en mathématiques. Dupin a laissé son nom au "théorème de Dupin" sur les systèmes orthogonaux de surfaces, à "l'indicatrice de Dupin" et à la "cyclide de Dupin". La théorie des cyclides a donné lieu à des développements importants à partir des année 1860, grâce aux travaux de Darboux, mais aussi d'Amédée Mannheim, professeur de géométrie descriptive à l'école polytechnique . De nos jours les cyclides sont utilisée en CAO (conception assistée par ordinateur). La page de titre des "Développements" porte la signature de Mannheim. DSB [IV, p.257 : " His 'Applications de géométrie et de mécanique (1822) ' was a continuation off the 'Développements ' but placed greater stress on applications. (.) The 'Développements contains many contributions to differential geometry, notably the introduction of conjugate and asymptotic lines on a surface, the so-called indicatrix of Dupin, and "Dupin's theorem," that three families of orthogonal furfaces intersect in the lines of curvature. A particular case Dupin investigated consisted of confocal quadrics. In the ' Applications ' we find an elaboration of Monge's theory of deblais et remblais -- and, hence, of congruences of straight lines, with applications to geometrical optics. Here Dupin, improving on a theorem of Malus's (1807), sta … [Click Below for Full Description]

Although a number of companions of this kind were published for Irish use before and after Wilson's edition, this represents one of the most complete guides of its type and all of which were to be relegated to history less than fifty years later with the advent of the railway. Prior to mechanisation, the post-chaise was the most familiar and widely used means of road transport. This commonly took the form of a closed-body travelling carriage, which together with a pair or four horses and postilion driver was hired from stage to stage." (eneclann.ie).

It diverted me exceedingly ... I have torn through the third volume ... I do not think it falls off. It is a delightful burlesque ... " Reprinted numerous times and continually rediscovered with delight by successive generations of readers, it is "a justly famous and very important book. It takes a good hard poke at virtually all previous novelists ... Scott read nd enjoyed THE HEROINE. Jane Austen loved it, and Poe reviewed it, saying that its wit and humor were 'racy, dashing, and palpable.'" - Wolff Very scarce on the market.

CORVISART, Jean Nicolas.
FIRST ENGLISH EDITION (the first edition in English was published in Philadelphia the previous year) of Corvisart's classic work, the first "comprehensive and systematic treatise on diseases of the heart" (the preface) in the English language. "Corvisart founded clinical cardiology and introduced percussion into the clinic after translating Auenbrugger's book. He classed cardiac enlargement as active or passive aneurysm of the heart, and recognised the purring tremor as a sign of valvular obstruction but did not listen to the heart. His Essai was the first treatise on heart disease to conform to the pattern of a text-book and deal systematically with pericarditis, myocardial disease, carditis and aneurysm. He was physician to Napoleon and a reputed bon viveur... The first edition of Corvisart was written by Horeau from lecture notes, but later editions were by Corvisart himself" (Evan Bedford Catalogue). See G&M 2737 (first edition, in French, of 1806): "Corvisart really created cardiac symptomatology and made possible the differentiation between cardiac and pulmonary disorders." Bedford catalogue 364: "Hebb's translation of the second French edition, now very rare." This edition is much rarer than the French original or the American edition.

SMITH, John Prince (c.1774-1882).
London: Longman, 1813. [Economics] FIRST EDITION. Octavo, pp. lii; 496. Original tan calf with raised bands to spine, gilt rules, red title label. Spotting to prelims and preface, otherwise contents clean. Binding lightly rubbed, crown of spine worn, tear to rear joint at head and tail. Overall an attractive copy of a particularly rare text, missing from many important Economics libraries; no copies have been recorded sold at auction and a survey of specialist booksellers' catalogues has been fruitless. Seven copies are held at UK institutions (BL, Birmingham, Cambridge, Edinburgh, London, LSE and Sheffield) and just two further copies worldwide (Tokyo and Wyoming). Smith was editor of the Law Journal in London and was counsel for Daniel Isaac Eaton who published Thomas Paine's Age of Reason. His magnum opus 'The Science of Money' appeared in 1813 and in 1817 he was appointed second fiscal officer in the sugar-trade colony of Demerara-Essequibo (British Guiana). Formerly a Dutch territory, the local currency remained the Guilder, despite British control. Smith was accompanied to the Caribbean by his daughter and son, John Prince Smith (jr.,1809-1874), later a political economist and free trade liberal. Smith senior died in Demerara the year before the mass slave rebellion occurred. Bloy, Marjorie. Biographical Dictionary of British Economists.

First English Edition.Two vols in one, 4to, Publisher's boards, later paper spine and label, with 2 hand-coloured, aquatint frontispieces and a folding engraved chart. Krusenstern (1770-1846), "appointed to command the first Russian round-the-world expedition, had serving with him a brilliant corps of officers, including Lisiansky, Langsdorff, and Kotzebue. The expedition was to attempt to ?open relations with Nippon and the Sandwich Islands, to facilitate trade in South America, to examine California for a possible colony, and make a thorough study and report of the Northwest coast, its trade and its future.?.The importance of this work is due to its being the official account of the first Russian expedition to circumnavigate the globe, and the discoveries and rectifications of charts that were made, especially in the North Pacific and on the northwest coast of America.The introduction is particularly important and interesting because of the information it contains respecting the state of Russian commerce during the eighteenth century, the Russian voyages and discoveries in the Northern Ocean, and the Russian fur trade" (Hill).

Five vols. 8vo, orig. patterned mica-speckled wrappers (some worming carefully repaired), orig. block-printed title labels on upper covers (all the labels a little wormed), new stitching. Osaka: Uozaki Motosaburo [& four others] & Kyoto: Nishimura Kichibei, 1813. First edition, fine and thick-paper copy with special refined coloring and blind embossing of many of the woodcuts, of this important anatomical work which collects the records of three dissections performed in Kyoto in 1783, 1798, and 1802. The author explains them based on theories of both traditional Chinese medicine as well as Western medicine. "A Japanese treatise on anatomy and anatomical dissection in five volumes was published in 1813 by Shoshui or Boku or Koki Mitani (1774-1823) with the title Kaitai hatsumo. This was not the first original Japanese work on dissection, since priority in that respect had been established by the appearance in 1759 of the Zo-shi of Toyo Yamawaki. But that earlier work was short and its illustrative material limited to a few crude drawings of the viscera. Kaitai hatsumo appears, however, to be the first Japanese exposition on the whole system of human anatomy, based upon original observation (including dissection) and knowledge of other anatomical works.

"De l'Allemagne est un des livres fondamentaux du XIXème siècle, celui par lequel les français ont été le plus largement initiés à la littérature et à la philosophie allemande". Selon Quérard, « La première édition, tirée à 10.000 exemplaires, fut saisie en entier et brûlée ou mise au pilon : il n’en est échappé que quelques exemplaires. Madame de Staël fit réimprimer son livre à Londres en 1814, 3 vol. in-8. Il le fut encore une fois à Genève ».Fuyant Paris en septembre 1813 pour échapper aux menaces impériales, elle gagna l’Angleterre et trouva refuge chez Lord Lansdowne. Emportant un des exemplaires d’épreuves de l’édition originale parue à Paris chez Nicolle, elle le corrigea, le munit d’une préface datée du 1er octobre 1813, afin de republier l’ouvrage à Londres chez John Murray.Murray voulait que le livre soit diffusé en Allemagne.

Paris: Imprimerie Imperiale. First edition, folio, pp. viii, lvi, 1112, [2] errata; recent half tan calf antique over marbled boards, red morocco labels on spine; perforated Free Library / Philadelphia stamp at the bottom of the title page and a small rubberstamp of the same on the following leaf; a nice copy. Lust, quoting Klaproth: "As everyone knew, the dictionary had been compiled by Brollo (1648-1704) even if his name did not appear on the title-page. It can be seen that De Guignes rearranged it, translating part of the definitions of characters, though none of the compounds, into French. He does not seem to have added much."
