        A Treatise on the wealth, power, and resources of the British Empire , in every quarter of the world, including the East Indies... Illustrated by copious statistical tables

      London: Joseph Mawman, 1814. Quarto, contemporary tree calf with gilt tooled flat spine and green calf label, boards scuffed, old repairs to front board and tail of spine, title-page a little foxed yet very good. First edition: a detailed description of the state of the British Empire at the final stage of the war with Napoleon, with a chapter on the penal colony at New South Wales. Patrick Colquhoun (1745-1820) was an energetic magistrate who played an important role in the reform of the London police from 1792 onwards, while promoting philanthropic schemes for the relief of the poor through charitable funds and soup kitchens. Colquhoun predicted a disastrous rise in unemployment and poverty following the demobilisation of the British armed forces after the defeat of Napoleon, who was exiled at Elba at the time of publication. The author sought to calculate the wealth of the empire, including possible sources of future revenue, with a view to initiating large scale employment and emigration to the colonies. Colquhoun devotes an important chapter to the state of affairs in New South Wales, providing detailed descriptions of the agriculture and exports of the colony alongside the significant expenditures incurred. Through careful calculations the author proposes the convict settlement at New South Wales has cost £2,465,182: an enormous sum compared to the relatively small number of convicts transported. The cost exceeds the benefit, maintains Colquhoun, and the convicts should be sent to the relatively prosperous colonies of South Africa and North America (being present day Canada). The description of New South Wales details the trading privileges enjoyed by army officers, especially the trade in cheap liquor that bred intoxication and poor discipline, while low numbers of female migrants generated prostitution and immorality. Interestingly, the author notes the lack of minted currency and the use of grain and cattle in as a medium of exchange. Clearly a wide variety of sources were used in this ambitious project including the Report of the Select Committee for Transportation of 1812 and the early settlement accounts of Governor Arthur Phillip and Judge Advocate David Collins.

        View of Port Jackson, taken from the South Head

      London: G and W. Nicol, 1814. Engraved plate measuring 270 x 344 mm. (sheet size), some marginal loss at one corner, else good. Sydney Harbour after Westall. Fine early view of Sydney Harbour by William Westall, official illustrator for the Investigator voyage. Westall produced about one hundred and forty sketches and watercolours during his time with Flinders, yet only a handful were selected to be engraved as plates for the 1814 publication, of which this is a pleasing example. Westall was recommended by Benjamin West, president of the Royal Academy, for appointment as landscape artist to Matthew Flinders's voyage in the Investigator. Accordingly, this engraving is one of the first published records of Australian landscape to be made by a Royal Academy artist.

Ausgebildet bei ihrem Vater und seinen beiden Kompagnons, arbeitete sie erst in der lithographischen Anstalt. Hier hatte sie mit eigenen Folgen großen, auch finanziellen Erfolg, weshalb sie für die Familie einen Sommersitz in Thalkirchen bei München erwerben konnte. 1813 ging sie zum Studium der Historienmalerei an die Münchner Akademie und war Schülerin von J.P. von Langer (1756-1824) und dessen Sohn R. von Langer (1783-1846). Bereits 1815 sollte sie mit ihren ersten ausgestellten Ölgemälden große Anerkennung finden. 1818 folgte eine Reise nach Paris, wo sie die Werke der Alten Meister studierte und vor allem nach Raffael kopierte. Ein dreijähriges Reisestipendium ermöglichte ihr anschließend einen Aufenthalt in Italien. Hier begegnete sie Louise Seidler (1786-1866) und entdeckte, auch durch F. Overbeck angeregt, die religiöse Malerei. 1821 wurde sie Ehrenmitglied der Accademia di San Luca. Nach München 1822 zurückgekehrt, heiratete sie 1823 den ihr seit 1818 bekannten Kgl. Bayer. Vize-Oberstallmeister Wilhelm Frh. von Freyberg. Danach wechselnde Aufenthalte in München und Thalkirchen sowie Fortsetzung ihrer künstlerischen Tätigkeit. Sie schuf ein großes OEuvre an Landschaften, Porträts, Historien- und Genrebildern sowie religiösen Motiven. Von der in ihrer Zeit als eine der besten Zeichnerinnen und Malerinnen gerühmten Künstlerin besitzen zahlreiche Museum und Graphische Sammlungen Werke, so in München, Berlin und Wien.

"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.

        The hieroglyhick [sic] Bible, or, Select passages in the Old and New Testaments

      Boston: Isaiah Thomas, Jun., J.T. Buckingham, printer, 1814. 12mo (15 cm; 5.75"). 144 pp. As per its title-page, the "Second Edition" (only) of this popular and long-reprinted production. "Hieroglyphic" is the term that was originally and is still applied to Bibles of the sort offered here, but, in fact, the stories are in the form of rebuses, with the accurate readings supplied at the base of each page. These abridged Bibles are laden with many "cuts" or illustration — this one having 500, according to the title-page — and were designed for use by children. They had the dual purpose of being a fun way of learning to read and of learning the Bible. Children are, unfortunately, notorious as "enemies of books," to use the term made current by Mr. Blades in his book of that title, and so, hieroglyphic Bibles are often severely damaged or incomplete. Binding: Contemporary brown calf, perimeter of boards tooled in gilt with a triple fillet; inside that is a gilt-tooled roll of a rope design, and inside that is the blind-tooled roll of a repeating flower motif. Turn-ins with a gilt-roll of dots, stone pattern endpapers. Provenance: Gift inscription on p. 5: "Sarah Fessenden to her cousin Elizabeth Ford. New Year's gift, Jan. 1817." Ownership inscription on front fly-leaf, "Elizabeth Ford's Book. Not in Rosenbach, Early American Children's Books; Welch, Bibliography of American Children's Books Printed Prior to 1821, 512.1; Shaw & Shoemaker 30861. Binding as above, rebacked in calf with cloth-reinforced hinges (inside) and small spine label reading "H-Bible." Pages 43/44 and 47/48 torn with loss of paper and some text and small portion of one image; paper repaired and text replaced in pen and ink. Age-toning, some light spotting and an ink-blot or two; a good+ copy of => a delightful little Bible, children's book, and Americanum.

The final leaf has been supplied in coloured facsimile and the lower cover neatly replaced at some time by a pink cover of the same period and weight. Each leaf has a large very nicely hand coloured copper engraving with an 8 line verse below telling the story. Jerry and Kitty court, get married and have a baby, then they tire of each other and decide to go travelling. Leaf 15 shows them on a boat and Jerry pushing his wife overboard to drown. This was probably considered not quite suitable for children by some parents, who thoughtfully removed and destroyed the leaf, although no doubt most children would have enjoyed the grim ending to the tale. Spine missing, label lightly browned, early name and date on upper cover, some early writing on inside of cover and blank side of title page (title is on verso of first leaf), last line of verse on page 4 is trimmed off, contents clean and bright. A defective copy of a scarce pretty hand coloured book (1 leaf in facsimile, lower cover replaced). Moon No. 169; Osborne Volume I, page 58. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.

        Edinburgh. A View of the Old Town, taken from Princes Street

      published by Daniel McIntosh, sold in London by Boydell & Co., and Colnaghi & Co, Edinburgh 1814 - A lively view of Georgian Edinburgh. A fine view of a windy day on one of the most fashionable streets of the period: in the foreground a stagecoach is leaving, laden with passengers and apparently pursued by a late-comer who gestures in an attempt to attract the attention of anyone on the coach. More serenely, the coach is flanked by fashionable Edinburgh going about its daily business. This view may be seen as a precursor to John Clark's own Views in Scotland published in London between 1824 and 1825 with a total of 35 plates. A 19th century gazetteer notes that 'Edinburgh presents, from almost every point of view whence it can be viewed such scenic and architectural groupings as are perhaps unrivalled in any existing city in the world. It possesses attractions peculiarly its own, and fixes the gaze and challenges the admiration of a spectator by displays of general excellence, unaided by the sumptuousness of any one object, and undergraded by the deteriorations from its prevailing style of magnificence.' (Fullarton [publisher's] A Gazetteer of the World 1856, III, p.140). Aquatint, printed in brown ink, coloured by hand, by John Clark.

        John Boydell, Esq

      London: Cadell & Davies, 21 June, 1814. Soft ground etching, plate size 380 x 325 mm. on a larger sheet; a very good impression, ex-library stamp to verso, together with the relevant letterpress. A fine portrait of the great publisher John Boydell (1720-1804), the most important print publisher of his day, and together with his daughter Mary and her husband George Nicol, the initial impetus behind the publication of John Webber's magnificent Views in the South Seas. Webber's colour-plate book of the Pacific, the only colour-plate book relating to Cook's voyages and the last of the great Cook publications, contained sixteen coloured aquatints, after Webber's drawings, and engraved by the artist himself. The portrait was done by Henry Meyer (1782-1847) after an original portrait by Gilbert Stuart (1755-1828). In the Georgian era Webber was perhaps most famous for a Shakespeare project that included the establishment of a Shakespeare Gallery and the publication of an illustrated edition of Shakespeare's plays. He also became Lord Mayor of London.

      London: Edward Orme, 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.

        Pianta della Città di Milano.

      1814 - Milan: Amminstrazione Municipale, 1814. Four sheets conjoined, dissected and laid on linen, as issued, total 1210 x 1390mm. In slipcase. A fine example. A monumental town plan of Milan, commissioned in 1807, two years after Napoleon created the city the capital of his kingdom of Italy. Surveyed by the staff of the Osservatorio Astronomico di Brera (Brera Astronomical Observatory), it is extremely accurate and contains a huge amount of detail, with keys down both sides. The map was published just in time, on the 2nd January 1814; Napoleon abdicated in 11th April, and, despite resistance by his viceroy, Eugène de Beauharnais, the Austrians occupied Milan on the 28th April, annexing the remains of the Kingdom back into the empire.

        Chart of Terra Australis by M.Flinders Commr. of H.M.Sloop Investigator 1799-1803. East Coast, Sheet III

      London: G. and W. Nicol, 1814. Large engraved map measuring 645 x 933 mm., backed on linen and folded at centre, some browning and offsetting with wear to extremities and slight loss at the central fold. The Queensland coast, and Wreck Reef. Attractive engraved chart from Flinders' survey detailing part of the eastern seaboard of Australia, including Hervey and Keppel Bays and the lower reaches of the Great Barrier Reef. This chart is also notable because at upper right it shows the dangerous waters of Wreck Reef, where Flinders was briefly stranded after the wreck of the Porpoise and Cato in 1803. As with the preceding map of Carpentaria, this chart is an example of the first state prepared for A Voyage to Terra Australis, and has only a single central fold, suggesting it has not been taken from one of the smaller format atlases. This copy, backed on old linen, appears to have been used at sea in the early nineteenth-century - a few feint pencil markings, including one clearly dated '17th September 1827', and the vestiges of a voyage track can be discerned. Flinders' charts were the bedrock of Australian coastal navigation for generations, and this is an appealing survival.

        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]

Vereinzelte Stockfleckchen, sonst vorzüglich erhalten. Selten!
