        RESEARCHES CONCERNING THE INSTITUTIONS & MONUMENTS of the Ancient Inhabitants of America, with Descriptions & Views of Some of the Most Striking Scenes in the Cordilleras! TWO VOLUMES.

      Longman, Hurst,, London: 1814 - 441 pp.; 324 pp. First English edition; later, 3/4 polished, black calf with marble boards; gilt stamped spine; double lettering pieces, red and green; untrimmed; endpapers; illustrated. Vol. I: nine engraved plates (two hand-colored); vol. II: ten engraved plates (three hand-colored). Binding tight; boards fine; internally fine text but for title page repair to Vol. I, and blue ink fingerprints (the artist?) not affecting image opposite the bottom p. 34 vol. II. See additional images provided. This two volume octavo is a scaled down version of the folio atlas (sixty-nine engravings) and octavo edition. Quoting the title page: "Written in French by Alexander von Humboldt & translated into English by Maria Williams." ?Humboldt's travels in the Americas, 1799-1804, although they did not include Brazil, came quite close in his exploration of the Upper Orinoco and Casiquiare Canal in Venezuela. This edition is concerned mostly with his travels and discoveries in the Andes of Ecuador and the Aztec antiquities of Mexico. Quoting the text, p. 9: "I have endeavoured to copy, with the greatest exactness, the objects exhibited in these engravings. Those who are employed in the practical profession of the arts are aware, how difficult it is to attend minutely to the great number of plates, which compose a Picturesque Atlas. If some be less perfect than connoisseurs might wish, this imperfection ought not to be attributed to the artists employed, under my inspection, in the execution of my work, but to the sketches which I drew on the spot, and often in very difficult circumstances. Several landscapes have been coloured, because in this sort of engraving, the snow detaches itself more strikingly from the azure of the sky, and the imitation of the Mexican paintings rendered the mixture of coloured plates with engravings indispensable. I have felt how difficult it is to give the former that vigorous tone of colouring, which we admire in the Oriental Scenery of Mr. Daniel." ? Quoting MB 1280: This is the translation of the text of the large folio Vues des Cordilleres. The reader is recommended to by this folio, but for those not able to do so 19 of the most important plates have been reduced for this edition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Mémoire sur l’Organisation des Plantes ou Réponse à la Question Physique Proposée par la Société Teylérienne.

      J.J. Beets, Haarlem: 1814 - . PIONEER OF CELLULAR BOTANY. This is the author’s prize-winning essay for the Teylerian Society in Haarlem in 1812. The work is both a review of earlier botanical literature, but it also puts forth an early form of cell theory. " Dietrich Georg Kieser (who published after the award of the Gottingen prize), is of interest for three reasons: first, because although he was a German and a professor at Jena, the definitive statement of his position, the Mémoire sur l’Organisation des Plantes was written in French; second, because he wrote a widely read textbook, in German, in 1815, the Elemente der Phytotomie, and third, because he is mentioned by Dumortier, the discoverer of binary fission, as one of the principal proponents of the view that cells arise from subcellular granules. The Mémoire sur l’Organisation des Plantes was submitted as a prize essay for a competition organized by the Teylerian Society on the subject of plant fine structure, and especially on the tubes and vessels to be found in plants. Kieser’s essay won the prize and became very well known. It begins with a detailed review of the work of [Robert Hook, Marcello Malpighi, Nehemiah Grew (1641-1712), Leeuwenhoek, Henri-Louis Du Hamel du Monceau, Sir John Hill, Martin Van Marum, Mustel, Johann Hedwig, Jean Senebier, Christian Sprengel, Ludolph Christian Treviranus, Heinrich Friedrich Link (1767-1850), Karl Asmund Rudolphi (1771-1832) (the "father of helminthology") and Mirbel], and it is, in this respect, one of the most useful of nineteenth century compendiums of botanical history. As for Kieser’s own ideas on the organization of plants, he takes the view that ‘Les plantes sont composées en grande partie de cellules, qui forment un tissue cellulaire.’ (‘Plants are composed in large part [that is, not entirely] of cells, which form a cellular tissue.’) He believed that these cells arose from an infinity of tiny, transparent globules to be found in the sap. These globules were through to enlarge, cohere and, as a result of external pressures, assume their final shape. He regarded the cells of lower plants, which retailed their ellipsoidal shape, as the most primitive forms. In higher plants, however, the cells were forced by reciprocal pressures into a shape that he now defined more specifically as a dodecahedral rhombus. There pressures were said to obey strict mathematical laws, but how the forces were exerted and what mathematical laws they obeyed are not stated [referring to his later work, Elemente der Phytotomie] " Henry Harris, The Birth of the Cell, 2000, - page 45. Stevens cites Kieser’s work as a model of the post-Linnean treatises that sought to organize and categorize major fields of the natural sciences. "The various shades of meaning it encompassed prefigure many of the questions — evolutionary, genetic, developmental, mechanistic, functional, anatomical, and physiological – that would be addressed in biology later in the nineteenth century." Kierser links Lamarck and Treviranus to using terms that organize biology, as with Kieser, but they also do not address "organization" specifically. Dieterich Georg KIESER (also Dietrich Georg von Kieser, 1779 - 1862), born in Harburg, Germany, studied medicine at the Universities of Würzburg and Göttingen, receiving his doctorate in 1801. He was appointed director of a Jena mental hospital in 1816. The following year he began teaching psychiatry at the university and opened a private sanatorium. For most of his career he was a professor at the University of Jena, where from 1824 to 1862. Kieser was also a learned scholar of natural sciences. While working as a professor at the University of Jena, Kieser operated a private ophthalmology clinic from 1831 to 1847, and from 1847 until 1858 he was director of the Grand Ducal Mental Hospital. He was an advocate of balneology, and beginning in 1813 was a physician at the therapeutic spas at Heilbad Berka. With Adam von Eschenmayer (1768-1852) he published the 12-vol [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Foreign Field Sports, Fisheries, Sporting Anecdotes , &c. &c. from drawings by Messrs. Howitt, Atkinson, Clark, Manskirch, &c?with a supplement of New South Wales

      Edward Orme, London 1814 - Quarto, 160 pages letterpress without pagination, 100 handcoloured aquatints with the 1813 New South Wales supplement bound at rear (this comprising separate title-page, dedication leaf, 10 handcoloured aquatints and 14 letterpress pages); a fine copy of the early issue with watermarks dated 1811 in a handsome contemporary binding of half green russia (joints and extremities a bit worn), spine in compartments with gilt lettering and ornament. Famous colourplate book including a section on the Aborigines of NSW. Beautifully preserved copy of one of the outstanding aquatint books of the early nineteenth century containing a remarkable suite of ten plates depicting Aboriginal life and customs with detailed letterpress descriptions. This is the first edition of Foreign Field Sports, a collection of 100 hunting scenes from cultures across the globe, including Africa, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas. This complete edition includes the 'Field Sports, &c. &c. Of the Native Inhabitants of New South Wales' separately published by Edward Orme the previous year. It comprises ten plates of Aboriginal hunting and ceremonial scenes with descriptive letterpress, separate title-page and a dedication leaf to Governor Bligh. The ten scenes are remarkable in the history of early colonial Australian art, offering good-natured and unprejudiced depictions of Aboriginal life in an era when pejorative representation was the norm. The scenes include smoking out possums, a kangaroo hunt, spearing birds on the wing, fishing from canoes, a native dance, painted warriors, men in single combat and an idyllic night scene. Delicately hand-coloured and expertly printed, the ten plates 'are without question the most attractive and sympathetic of the early European depictions of the native inhabitants' (Australian Rare Books p.280). Although the dedication leaf and plates are signed by John Heaviside Clarke, there is little doubt he is not the artist responsible for the Aboriginal plates and their accompanying text. Clarke was a commercial artist working in London, turning original sketches into finished drawings ready for the engraving process. For decades controversy has surrounded the true identity of the artist of the Aboriginal studies. In Australian Rare Books, Wantrup argues convincingly for the natural history illustrator John Lewin, and explains the stylistic differences between Lewin's known work and the plates in this volume to the conventions and discretionary modifications made by Clark and his engraver. Wantrup maintains the artist must have experienced prolonged contact with the Aboriginal peoples of the Sydney region to produce studies of such detail, and through a process of elimination leaves Lewin as the only reasonable candidate. Nonetheless, Richard Neville, in his recently published monograph on Lewin, disagrees with this attribution on the basis of stylistic and aesthetic considerations. While the identity of the artist remains contentious, these depictions of Aboriginal life stand apart from contemporary work and remarkable for their sensitivity: 'other artists working in the colony at the time portrayed the Aborigines with grotesque sarcasm? But the drawings in Field Sports demonstrate respect for their dignity and exuberantly innocent humanity' (Australian Rare Books, p.281). Aside from its relevance to Australian colonial history, Foreign Field Sports is a testament to the quality of English colour plate book publishing during the early decades of the nineteenth-century, an era that saw other magnificent books such as Ackermann's Microcosm of London. Competition between publishers produced unprecedented technical and artistic excellence, especially in the perfection of professional handcolouring techniques (of which Foreign Field Sports is a paradigm example). These volumes were expensive in their own time, often priced at several guineas a volume, and took pride of place in private book collections. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

"Noch niemals ist mir ein Typhus-Kranker gestorben, und ein gleiches Glück glaube ich mit der festesten Gewissheit einem Jeden der die Krankheit wie ich behandelt, versprechen zu können, wenn nicht etwas sehr ungünstige Umstände die Genesung verhindern, (z.B. in überfüllten, schlechten bedingten Lazarethen, bei sehr alten oder höchst schwächlichen Subjekten). - Hierauf gründen sich meine Behauptungen, hierauf meine Behandlungsart." +++ Wedemeyer: Georg Ludwig Heinrich Karl W., Arzt und tüchtiger Physiolog, wurde um 1790 in Elbingerode geboren. Er studierte in Göttingen und erlangte daselbst 1812 die Doctorwürde mit der Inauguraldissertation "De febre petechiali". Darauf ließ er sich als Arzt in Hannover nieder, wurde kgl. Leib- und Oberstabschirurgus, dirigirte 1815 die hannoverischen Hospitäler in den Niederlanden und leistete in dieser Stellung, besonders nach der Schlacht von Waterloo. den Verwundeten aufopferungsvolle Hülfe.

This version of the opera Fidelio/Leonore, with revised libretto by Treitschke, was first performed on May 23rd 1814 at the K.K. Theater in Vienna. "Fidelio slumbered till the beginning of 1814, when Beethoven, to his evident surprise, learned that three singers wished to revive it at the Kärntnertor for their benefit. He agreed on condition that he was permitted to make changes. This time the revision of the libretto was entrusted (with Sonnleithner's permission) to Treitschke, an experienced man of the theatre. Beethoven worked at the score from March until 15 May. He found it an arduous task: 'I could compose something new far more quickly than patch up the old... I have to think out the entire work again... this opera will win for me a martyr's crown' (to Treitschke, April). The new overture was not ready in time for the first performance (23 May) [at the Kärntnertor Theatre in Vienna], when that to The Ruins of Athens was substituted. It made its début on the second night (26 May)... The conductor was Ignaz Umlauf. The seventh performance on 18 July was for Beethoven's benefit; his advertisement stated that 'two new pieces have been added'. From this revival, followed on 21 November by Weber's production in Prague, the success of the opera was assured." Dean: Beethoven and Opera in The Beethoven Reader, p. 340.

He cleverly adapted many of the classic children's tales and verses to his town, and advertised his own shop and publications in poems on the versos of many of the frontispieces. The original colored paper wrappers are bound in with each title. From the collection of the British publisher, writer, and printer Andrew White Tuer, with a manuscript note by him describing this copy tipped in.

A collection of the letters of the mysterious 'Junius', a contributor of many socially influential letters to the Public Advertiser in the eighteenth century.

The signature had been already used, apparently by him, in a letter of 21 November 1768. These and numerous other personal letters were not included in his Letters of Junius collection, published in 1772. Including three folding facsimiles. Two volumes of a three-volume set. Condition: In half-calf bindings. Externally, generally smart, though a little rubbed, with some wears to the heads and tails of the spine. Internally, firmly bound.

      Artaria und Comp.ie [PNs 2327-23-43] [1814], Wien - First Edition, first issue of the third and final version. Rare. Kinsky/Halm pp. 183-184. Dorfmüller p. 322. Hirsch IV, 318. Fuld p. 326. Hoboken 2, 319. Title without price, "Aufzugen" in second line without umlaut, "Comp.ie" in imprint, and the letter "E" to lower left corner of title. With additional title-page to second act. This version of the opera Fidelio/Leonore, with revised libretto by Treitschke, was first performed on May 23rd 1814 at the K.K. Theater in Vienna. "Fidelio slumbered till the beginning of 1814, when Beethoven, to his evident surprise, learned that three singers wished to revive it at the Kärntnertor for their benefit. He agreed on condition that he was permitted to make changes. This time the revision of the libretto was entrusted (with Sonnleithner's permission) to Treitschke, an experienced man of the theatre. Beethoven worked at the score from March until 15 May. He found it an arduous task: 'I could compose something new far more quickly than patch up the old. I have to think out the entire work again. this opera will win for me a martyr's crown' (to Treitschke, April). The new overture was not ready in time for the first performance (23 May) [at the Kärntnertor Theatre in Vienna], when that to The Ruins of Athens was substituted. It made its début on the second night (26 May). The conductor was Ignaz Umlauf. The seventh performance on 18 July was for Beethoven's benefit; his advertisement stated that 'two new pieces have been added'. From this revival, followed on 21 November by Weber's production in Prague, the success of the opera was assured." Dean: Beethoven and Opera in The Beethoven Reader, p. 340. 2 volumes. Oblong folio. Contemporary red paper boards with dark green oval leather labels with decorative floral ornaments and titling gilt to uppers, dark green leather title labels to spines. Volume I: 2ff.

        A Practical Treatise on the Ordinary Operations of the Holy Spirit

      London - Valpy8.5 by 5; (xx)256pp., 1814. London - Valpy8.5 by 5; (xx)256pp., 1814 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A thoughtfully-distilled but unforgiving assertion of the valuelessness of superficial religiousness. George Faber (1773-1854) was educated at Oxford, where he was made a fellow of University College in 1793. He resigned his fellowship a decade later in order to marry, and took up a series of livings (including Long Newton, to which he is identified as being rector in this edition) before becoming prebendary of Salisbury in 1830. Faber was an evangelical (but not a dissenter) who stressed the importance of faith as faith's own justification, and the absolute authority of the scriptures. Faber completed his treatise on the Holy Spirit in 1800, but was by his own definition 'in no hurry' to publish, preferring instead to reflect on and digest what he had written. The work finally appeared c1813-14. Within, he asserts that people are 'no better than heathens' if their Christianity is outward only. Instead, he advocates a 'radical change of heart' accompanied by a concerted change in 'outward manners. 'Condition: Externally, bound in old Morrocco with gilt lines and damaged label across chipped spine. Corners worn. Internally,hinges tender but otherwise firmly bound. Pages very bright notwithstanding some foxing and damp stain to bottom of first few leaves. Bookplate of Professor David Arthur Pailin to front pastedown. Overall: VERY GOOD..

Den blinde Sweitzer F. Huber gjorde mange bemaerkelsevaerdige opdagelser vedrörende bihold og var et bemaerkelsesvaerdigt eksempel pa, hvordan man med mod og viljestyrke kan overvinde blindhed. Blandt andet beviste han, at bidronningen udvikles fra en arbejder larve. The, since his fifteen years, blind Swiss Huber was called "the father of modern bee science". He designed a famous beehive with movable "leaves" like pages in a book and proved that the bee-queen came from a worker larvae. Huber, who lost his sight in young age, exemplifies how a man of courage can triumph over blindness..

Athiae, a Johanne Leusden denuo recognitam, recensita variisque notis latinis illustrata ab Everardo Van Der Hooght, V.D.M. Editio prima Americana, sine punctis masorethicis. Philadelphia: Cura et Impensis Thomae Dobson, MDCCCXIV [1814]. Half titles present in each volume. Two volumes, octavo. Modern calf binding, supplied half-title volume 2, some staining, otherwise a fine set.& & Hebrew was held in such high esteem by the founders of the American Republic that a story emerged at the time of the Revolution that Hebrew was being considered as a possible substitute for English as the American language. The reason had as much to do with absolute indifference towards anything having to do with England as it had with America’s symbolic view of equating our rebellion against the British with the struggle of the Israelites against the Egyptian Pharaoh.& Ironically, as Hebrew, the language of the Jewish people, gained acceptance and status among the New World gentiles, less than half of the original states, at the time of the 1814 printing, accepted the political equality of the Jew in America.& The study of the Bible was the cornerstone of learning in Puritan America. Indeed, it was oftentimes the only book the common folk would ever read during their lifetime. Despite a drop off in Biblical interest at the turn of the 18th century (in favor of the new developments in science and technology) a major revival was felt a scant decade and a half later. The prominent Protestant Seminaries, principally Andover, felt strongly that the Bible should be studied in it’s true, sacred, language. All entry-level clerical students were required to have a working knowledge of Hebrew. As pilgrims from America began flocking to the Holy Land, they applied their newly found knowledge of Hebrew and the Bible to understanding the ancient world.& In 1812, Jonathan Horwitz, a Jewish/Dutch printer, appeared in America with a box of type in hand determined to publish a Hebrew Bible based on the text by Everado Van der Hooght (1642-1716). Van der Hooght’s first Hebrew Bible had met with great success upon its publication in Amsterdam in 1705 and became a model for many other editions of the Hebrew Bible. Mr. Horwitz quickly met with both personal and financial difficulties in regards to publishing his Bible and sold his share (as well as the current list of subscribers) to Thomas Dobson, the eventual publisher.& The subscriber’s price of nearly seven dollars per volume was certainly exorbitant for the time, yet the need for an accurate, scholarly rendition of a Hebrew Bible for religious students was acute. Both Harvard Divinity School and Andover ordered 40 copies apiece.& VERY SCARCE. A.S.W. Rosenbach, in his American Jewish Bibliography (1926) cites only three known copies in America. Despite the fact that additional copies have come to light in the past half-century, this set remains scarce on the market today. This is a particularly lovely copy.&

      London by W.N. Jones December 1 1814 - Broadside, oblong folio, 20" x 8 1/2", hand coloured engraving by Williams, has been folded, printed one side. Satire on the trial of Colonel Quintin (of the 10th Hussars- the Prince of Wales' own regiment), who was court martialled for derelection of duty at the Battle of Toulouse in 1814 during the Peninsulr Campaign. Although found guilty on part of one of four charges, he was subjected only to a reprimand. It was alleged that Quintin's wife had been responsible for saving her husband because she was supposedly one of the Prince Regent's mistresses. The satire is primarily an attack on the Prince Regent.BM No. 12315

        Elements of Agricultural Chemistry

      London - Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown, 1814. London - Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown, 1814 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A second edition of Davy's fascinating lectures on agricultural chemistry, illustrated with a number of finely-engraved fold-out plates. Sir Humphry Davy, 1st Baronet FRS MRIA (17 December 1778 29 May 1829) was a British chemist and inventor. He is probably best remembered today for his discoveries of several alkali and alkaline earth metals, as well as contributions to the discoveries of the elemental nature of chlorine and iodine. Berzelius called Davy's 1806 Bakerian Lecture On Some Chemical Agencies of Electricity one of the best memoirs which has ever enriched the theory of chemistry. In 1815 he invented the Davy lamp, which allowed miners to work safely in the presence of flammable gases. Davy's Royal Institution lectures included spectacular and sometimes dangerous chemical demonstrations for his audience, a generous helping of references to divine creation, and genuine scientific information. Not only a popular lecturer, the young and handsome Davy acquired a huge female following around London. When Davy's lecture series on the new subject of Galvanism ended, he progressed to a new series on Agricultural Chemistry, and his popularity continued to skyrocket. By June 1802, after just over a year at the Institution and at the age of 23, Davy was nominated to full lecturer at the Royal Institution of Great Britain. Complete with ten fold-out plates. Condition: In a half calf binding with cloth-covered boards. Externally, water-damage to spine and loss to spine label. Slight cracking to rear joint. Front hinge strained but firm. Internally, firmly bound. Slight water damage to all plates and a number of further pages. Foxing to some plates and first and last few pages, otherwise generally bright. Overall: GOOD (ONLY).

There is also a stamp to the rear free end paper stating 'Cancelled & Catalogued' there are no other signs that this book had ever been in an, albeit private, library as it is otherwise clean and tightly bound. An interesting and not unattractive copy of this scarce Naval memoir from the Napoleonic era. Size: 8.25 inches tall by 5.25 inches. iv, 212 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 201-750 grams. Category: Biography & Autobiography; Ships & the Sea. Inventory No: 8393. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        OEUVRES COMPLETTES DE J. LA FONTAINE, Précédées D'Une Nouvelle Notice sur sa Vie. FABLES.

      Paris Che Lefèvre, Libraire 1814 - 6 volumes. First edition thus. With a profusion of fine copper plate engravings throughout. 8vo, contemporary French polished calf, the spines with wide decorated bands in gilt, separating compartments with quadruple fillet lined panels gilt, two maroon lettering labels gilt, marbled boards, marbled edges and end-leaves. A very handsome and attractive set with fine engravings throughout, some minor evidence of age, very well preserved, clean, tight, and in lovely condition. A FINE PRESENTATION OF THE OEUVRES AND OF FONTAINE’S GREAT FABLES AND OTHER WORKS ACCOMPANIED BY A PROFUSION OF FINE ENGRAVINGS. La Fontaine was famously known as one of the important literary group of the Rue du Vieux Colombier which included Racine, Boileau and Moliere. By the 1680s, he was known as one of the first men of letters in France. The FABLES were especially praised by well-known critics and it were well received by the general public. This issuance represents a very lovely printing of La Fontaine’s cherished fables in the original French. The copper engravings are extremely well executed and add handsomely to the appeal of this edition. The FABLES are accompanied by a brief life of Fontaine and a life of Aesop.

        Picture of Worthing; to which is added an Account of the adjacent Villages, and the Rides and Excursions in its Vicinity. Second Edition. Greatly enlarged, and embellished with plates. In two Volumes. FIRST SEPARATE ACCOUNT OF THE TOWN

      Printed and Sold by William Phillips, Worthing, [and others in London], 1814. Printed and Sold by William Phillips, Worthing, [and others in London], 1814. 2 vols., in 1, 12mo., Second and Best Edition, with large folding copper-engraved plate and engraved plate coloured by hand as frontispieces, 2 engraved maps (each finely coloured by hand) and a large folding engraved plan, some very light age-staining; attractively and firmly bound in mid-nineteenth century half calf, green straight-grain cloth boards, back with five flat bands, second compartment with leather label lettered and ruled in gilt, last compartment with date in gilt, red edges, yellow endpapers, a remarkably clean, crisp, well-preserved copy. Evans' most notable work - the first separate account of the town, resort and vicinity - was first published in 1805 to record his sojourn there of the previous summer. The first edition would appear to be particularly scarce; we have been able to locate only two institutional copies (one in the British Library). This greatly enlarged version adds a second volume devoted to the local rides and excursions 'from the pen of a gentleman who is, from long residence, well acquainted with that part of Sussex, and who feels warmly interested in the welfare and prosperity of Worthing'. There are also extra maps and plates. Anderson, p. 285 (recording only this edition); not in Upcott.. . Catalogs: topography: sussex.
