First edition, large paper copy in a good Regency binding. Salt visited Africa in 1809 on a British government mission to establish contact with the King of Abyssinia and to report on the state of the country. He stayed there for two years and on his return wrote this 'very interesting work' (Blackmer), which includes an account of the Portuguese settlements on the east coast of Africa and an appendix giving the vocabularies of the dialects spoken by different indigenous peoples inhabiting the coast from Mozambique to the borders of Egypt. As Czech notes, 'there is a description of shooting hippopotamus on the Tacazzi River, with perhaps the earliest printed illustration of hippo shooting'. Provenance:Fredrick Ducane Godman (1834-1919) was a distinguished British lepidopterist, entomologist, ornithologist and traveller, who correponded with Darwin. Maybe two plates in this work, one of birds, the other one of insects, were enticing enough for him to purchase such a fine copy of this travel book on Abyssinia.

        Vom Beruf unsrer Zeit für Gesetzgebung und Rechtswissenschaft.

      Heidelberg, bey Mohr und Zimmer, 1814. 8vo. Tb., 1 Bl., 162 S. Schöner, zeitgenössischer Pappband mit schönem Rotschnitt. Erste Ausgabe der berühmten Streitschrift zur Kodifikationsfrage! - Im Frühjahr des Jahres 1814 forderte der grosse Pandektist und Heidelberger Professor der Rechte Thibaut in einer kleinen Schrift die Kodifikation des deutschen Rechts. Nach dem Code civil von 1804 und dem Österreichischen Allgemeinen Gesetzbuch (ABGB) von 1811 lag die Frage und der Streit einer nationalen Kodifikation in Deutschland geradezu in der Luft. Eine rasche Antwort von Savigny (1779-1861) war von grosser Wichtigkeit, zumal in Berlin Gerüchte kursierten, man wolle auf dem Wiener Kongress das ABGB von Österreich auch in Deutschland einführen. Der Code Napoleon war teilweise geltendes Recht in einigen Gebieten Deutschlands. Thibaut (1772-1840) forderte in seiner kleinen Schrift eine einheitliche Gesetzgebung für Deutschland auf dem Gebiet des bürgerlichen Rechts, worunter er das Zivil-, Straf- und Prozessrecht verstand. Thibaut beendete am 19. Juni 1814 die Niederschrift zu seinem kleinen Werk. In den Tagen der Befreiungskriege, die der Patriot Thibaut als \"herzerhebende Zeiten\" beschreibt, war die Forderung nach einem gemeinsamen deutschen Gesetzbuch ein wichtiger Schritt zur nationalen Vereinigung. Bereits am 11. Oktober 1814 schreibt Savigny an einen Kollegen, dass in einigen Tagen sein \"kleines Buch gegen Gesetzbücher und Thibaut\" fertig sein wird. Am 22. Oktober schrieb Savigny, dass bereits vorgestern einige gedruckte Exemplare in Wien (zum Wiener Kongress) eingetroffen seien. Gewaltig war das Aufsehen, als Savigny im Herbst 1814 seine Gegenschrift zu Thibauts Forderungen vorlegte, gerade war der Wiener Kongress zusammengetreten. Es wurde die berühmteste und auch folgenreichste juristische Streitschrift, die Deutschland erleben sollte. \"Vom Beruf unserer Zeit\" war eine auch von seinen Kritikern anerkannte glänzende Schrift, mit der Savigny zugleich die Vorschläge von Thibaut aus der öffentlichen Diskussion verbannte, damit die geforderte Kodifikation verhinderte und zugleich eine programmatische Niederschrift der historischen Rechtsschule vorlegte. Grundlage seiner Anschauung war, dass nicht die gesetzte Willkür des Staates Recht erzeuge, sondern \"innere, stillwirkende Kräfte\", also eine Art von Volksgeist, der die Gesellschaft eine juristische Seele einhaucht, die zu erblicken und niederzuschreiben des Juristen Handwerk und Kunst, eben ihr \"Beruf\" sei. - Vgl. Goed. VI, 233, 2; Kat. Bibl. Kammergericht Berlin, Sp. 488; Stintzing-L. III/2, 199. Versand D: 2,00 EUR

        The Journal of Andrew Ellicott, late commissioner on behalf of the United States during part of the year 1796, the years 1797, 1798, 1799, and part of the year 1800: for determining the boundary between the United States and the possessions of his Catholic Majesty in America, containing occasional remarks on the situation, soil, rivers, natural productions, and diseases of the different countries on the Ohio, Mississippi, and Gulf of Mexico .

      William Fry, Philadelphia 1814 - (10 7/8 x 8 3/8 inches). vii,299,151pp. Errata leaf. 14 engraved folding maps and charts. Uncut. (Expert repair at head of title). Expertly bound to style in half russia over contemporary blue paper covered boards, flat spine in six compartments divided by gilt rules, black morocco lettering piece in the second compartment, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt The first thorough American survey of the lower Mississippi, and one of the earliest American reports on West Florida. Following his work on laying out the plans and surveys for Washington, D.C., Ellicott was appointed commissioner to determine the boundary between the United States and Spanish Florida. His travels, occupying four years, covered the Mississippi Valley, Florida, and the southern hinterlands. First published in 1803, the text provides a detailed summary of his work, while the maps show the borders and the region in far more detail than they had been illustrated previously. At the time of the Louisiana Purchase, this was one of the foremost authorities available on the region, and Ellicott's surveys and mentoring would have a profound influence on Meriwether Lewis, whom he advised at the request of Thomas Jefferson. The present copy is a scarce example of the first edition, second issue: i.e. comprised of the sheets of the 1803 first edition, but with a cancel title page on wove paper bearing the 1814 imprint of William Fry. Graff 1230 (1803 edition); Howes E94; Sabin 22216. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A system of the anatomy of the human body: illustrated by upwards of two hundred tables, taken partly from the most celebrated authors, and partly from nature. Third edition, considerably enlarged and improved.

      Edinburgh:: Printed by J. Pillans & Sons, 1814.. 3 volumes. 4to. ix, [1], 191; (iii)-vi, 214; [vi], 207 pp. 233 [numbered 1-207, with added nos.: 7a, 7b, 7c, 7d, 17a, 32a, 32b, 47a, 64a, 64b [after 65], 79a [mislabeled 52b], 79b, 79bb, 79c, 79d, 83a, 89a, 89b, 89c, 89d, 89e, 89f, 91a, 97a, 97b, 123a] engraved, etched, or aquatint plates (most partly hand-colored, 26 folding or double-page), glossary, index; pl. 67 torn, foxed, occasional waterstains. Some plates misnumbered or bound out of sequence. Later half calf [ca.1960 or earlier], marbled boards, dual gilt-stamped spine labels, raised bands, later endleaves; joints starting, rubbed. Very good. PARTLY HANDCOLORED COPY. Third edition of this massive compendium of anatomical drawings executed by the chief demonstrator of dissection anatomy at the University of Edinburgh. There were four editions, each more lengthy and replete with engraved plates. With this copy, most of the plates are heightened in color(s), especially in the second and third volumes. ¶ The work is chiefly notable for the large and prolific engraved drawings by the author. The contents are arranged by Bones, Muscles, Bursae Mucosae – ligaments & joints, Viscera – Organs – Senses [brain, ear, nose, mouth, throat, thorax, abdomen, male and female parts of generation, gravid uterus, Blood-Vessels, Absorbent System, Nerves. Of added note, it is clear that some of the dissections are depicted as children. ¶ The work was first issued in 1800, followed by a second edition in 1805-6, and a fourth edition in 1820. Fyfe also issued another work entitled, A Compendium of the Anatomy of the Human Body. Another title refers to his mentors, A System of Anatomy from Monro, Winslow, Innes, 1784, 2 vols. Also: A compendious system of anatomy. : In six parts. Part I. Osteology. II. Of the muscles, etc. III. Of the abdomen. Part IV. Of the thorax. V. Of the brain and nerves. VI. Of the senses. : Illustrated with twelve large copperplates, (1780). ¶ Andrew Fyfe, probably was born at Corstorphine, near Edinburgh, in 1775 was awarded a prize for the best drawing in an Edinburgh academy, led to, in 1777, an appointment as dissector to Dr. Monro secundus, professor of anatomy at Edinburgh University. Astley Cooper, who attended his demonstrations, “learned much from him.” He continued to superintend the dissections at the university for about forty years. He is described in the DNB as a “tall thin man, and one of the most ungainly lecturers I ever knew,” says Mr. Bransby Cooper. His position is described vaguely, but at some time he seemed to gain the authority to lecture on anatomy on his own. It seems his eldest son (of the same name) had more a talent for writing, and geared this work following a plan of the teachings at Edinburgh. ¶ DNB, vol. VII, pp. 780-1. See: Edinburgh History of the Book in Scotland, Volume 3: Ambition and Industry ... edited by Bill Bell. Edinburgh University Press (2007).

        Sir Joseph Banks : autograph letter, signed

      Manuscript in brown ink on octavo sheet of wove paper, 155 x 115 mm, headed Soho Square Augt .19 1814, to an unknown recipient regarding the clearance of a consignment for Banks by the Customs House in London; signed at the foot Jos. Banks; tipped onto later backing sheet; fine. "My dear Sir, accept my best thanks for your very obliging note. I have on the Receipt of it given immediate notice to Mr. [David] Maclean, E. India Inspector who Superintends my Customs House business, to make the necessary inquiries & to do the Needful whatever it may be. I am my dear Sir, Your oblgd hble Servnt. Jos Banks" A rare example of the handwriting of the great naturalist and patron of science, Joseph Banks. The note is of particular interest as it almost certainly concerns Banks' importation of exotic botanical specimens, regularly sent to him by one of his numerous correspondents in Australia, the East Indies, South America, India or Africa. Banks was largely responsible for most of the 70,000 new plants which are estimated to have been introduced into England during the reign of George III. Aside from living plants, Banks received dried specimens, seeds and sketchbooks from field collectors around the world. Banks' reference in this note to his "Customs House business" reveals that consignments of this type arrived for him on a frequent basis. Occasionally, more unusual (and sometimes, sinister) specimens were sent to him. In 1803, Banks received the head of the Aboriginal warrior Pemulwuy, preserved in spirits, which had been sent from New South Wales. In a letter to Governor King, Banks wrote: "... the head of one of your subjects ... is said to have caused some Comical consequences when opened at the Customs house. But when brought home, was very acceptable to our anthropological collectors and makes a figure in the museum of the late Mr Hunter, now purchased by the public." Provenance: Winifred Myers, Bond Street, London circa 1960; Collection of Sir Edward Ford (1902-1986), distinguished physician and philanthropist, Sydney; acquired by him from Winifred Myers in the 1960s (his handwritten note to this effect on the verso of the backing sheet).

        [Hand-Colored] Glances at Character

      London: Printed by Whittingham and Rowland, Goswell Street; For John Carr, 56, Paternoster-Row, 1814. First Edition. Full Calf. Fine. Crown 8vo: viii,158,[2]pp, with 8 delicately hand-colored aquatints, including the frontispiece. Complete with half-title and two pages of publisher's advertisements. (In every copy we've seen, plate no. 5, often described as bound out of sequence, is placed between plates nos. 7 and 8, and according to the text, that is where it belongs.) Later full tan calf, covers framed with French fillet and gilt sunburst ornament to corners, richly gilt spine in six compartments divided by raised bands, red morocco lettering piece gilt, gilt turn-ins, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. An excellent, wide-margined, hand-colored example, mild offsetting from plates, a few stray spots, else contents clean, bright and handsomely bound. From the collection of bibliophile Brent Gration-Maxfield, with his characteristic manuscript ex-libris and tidy bibliographic notes ("collated perfect," "only blemish is a slight mark on the half title"). Gration-Maxfield library was dispersed in a series of sales by Sotheby's in the early 1980s. Very scarce in commerce, not in Hardie, Abbey, or Tooley, and only J. Clark, not this title, mentioned in Prideaux. Halkett & Laing (2nd ed.) II, p. 378. NUC pre-1956, 201:609. A fine example of this uncommon satirical depiction of various Regency-era character types and memes, in verse, among them, the "bounce" (a bullying braggart), the country physician, the slave to fashion, the scholar of dead languages, and old maids and young lovers. The author remains anonymous and almost nothing is known of the artist, J. Clarke (who signs his plates "I. Clarke"), an engraver and illustrator active in the first third of the nineteenth century. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        Printed summary of Naval expenses during the War of 1812, including rewarding lieutenant Jesse Eliot for his capture of the Brig Detroit

      [Washington, D.C.], December 31, 1814. 21" x 14.25". "Printed document: ""Statement of expenditures... drawn from the treasury by the secretary of the navy"", one page, 21"" x 14.25"", October 1, 1813 - September 30, 1814, with an itemization of costs for pay and subsistence of officers and seamen; provisions; medicines; ordnance and small arms; repair of vessels; building of sloops of war; building barges; repair of frigates Constellation and Chesapeake; building vessels of war on Lakes Ontario and Champlain; building of floating batteries; rewarding lieutenant Eliot for the capture and destruction of the British Brig Detroit. Some very light dampstains, expert mending and strengthening on verso, else fine condition.[Note: On October 9, 1812, Lieutenant Jesse Eliott led two boats full of American soldiers and sailors up the Niagara River, their muffled oars propelling them quietly toward two British brigs, Caledonia and Detroit, lying at anchor under the protection of the guns of Fort Erie. Slipping aboard the two ships, the American sailors and soldiers achieved complete surprise. ""In about ten minutes,"" Elliott reported, ""I had the prisoners all secured, the topsails sheeted home, and the vessels underway."" There's nothing recorded concerning the fate of her British crew. There were other British warships on the river that day, and a ferocious gun-battle ensued. By all reports, the Detroit became stranded on a reef, and the tremendous pounding she was taking started a fire. She burned to the waterline.] A Recapitulation appears at the lower margin. Despite several notable successes by US frigates, the Royal Navy quickly gained the upper hand at sea; however, success on land seesawed back and forth between the Americans and the British and Canadian forces. The war ended with the Treaty of Ghent, restoring North America to status quo ante bellum."

Much of it is devoted to the classification of diseases (nosology), the text ending with a 49-page hierarchical classification scheme (pp. 245-293). In design and format the book matches Bomtempo's 1814 Compendios de materia medica, the first Brazilian pharmacological handbook. Both were printed and published by the royal printing office in Rio de Janeiro, the first printing office to be established in Brazil after an abortive 1747 attempt. The printing office produced the book admirably and used three different paper stocks, one also used for the last free endleaf and its conjugate paste-down, suggesting that the book was bound in Rio de Janeiro, perhaps by the royal printing office itself. Some of the paper has a slight blue cast.José Maria Bomtempo (1774-1843), born in Lisbon, studied medicine and philosophy at the University of Coimbra. He worked seven years in Angola and came to Brazil with the Prince Regent in 1808. He was granted several official medical and pharmacological titles and in 1820 became director of the Academia Medico-Cirurgica in Rio de Janeiro.With a few small browned spots in a couple quires and an occasional faint offset, but still in very good condition. The spine, hinges and board edges are slightly worn, with the loss of part of the spine label, and the boards show some unobtrusive scratches, but the binding is still in good condition. Rare pioneering work of Brazilian medicine and a nice example of early book production in Rio de Janeiro.

        Sir Roger De Coverley

      1814. STEELE, Richard and ADDISON, Joseph. Sir Roger De Coverley. Reprinted from The Spectator. London: Sampson Low, circa 1900. Square 12mo, contemporary full burgundy morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spine and covers, multi-color inlaid morocco cover illustration of Sir Roger de Coverley, raised bands, all edges gilt. $2200.Later edition of one of the leading series by two of the most famous 18th-century British periodical essayists, with illustrations by Chas. O. Murray, beautifully bound in a morocco-gilt Kelliegram binding with a detailed multi-color morocco cover inlay of Sir Roger De Coverley.“The periodical essay… reached its acme of achievement early in the 18th century in the work of Richard Steele and Joseph Addison.” Together, The Guardian, The Spectator and The Tatler “helped to form the taste and to shape the morals and manners of countless generations in Britain and abroad” (John Calhoun Stephens). Sir Roger de Coverley was one of Steele and Addison’s most noteworthy achievements. Created in The Spectator in 1711 by the writing team, Sir Roger de Coverley was said to be an English squire of Queen Anne’s reign. His name was immediately familiar to readers as it was also the name of a well-known English/Scottish country dance. The writers explained the coincidence by making de Coverley the great-grandson of the dance’s inventor. Sir Roger was intended to embody the values and display the mannerisms of an old country gentleman, which allowed his Tory politics to be portrayed as silly and outdated while the character himself remained beloved by the public. He swiftly became one of Steele and Addison’s most popular creations. With original covers bound in at rear. A few spots of foxing to text, crease to front free endpaper, expert repair to front joint. A near-fine copy, beautifully bound.

        Vom Beruf unsrer Zeit für Gesetzgebung und Rechtswissenschaft.

      bey Mohr und Zimmer, Heidelberg 1814 - Heidelberg, bey Mohr und Zimmer, 1814. 8vo. Tb., 1 Bl., 162 S. Schöner, zeitgenössischer Pappband mit schönem Rotschnitt. Erste Ausgabe der berühmten Streitschrift zur Kodifikationsfrage! - Im Frühjahr des Jahres 1814 forderte der grosse Pandektist und Heidelberger Professor der Rechte Thibaut in einer kleinen Schrift die Kodifikation des deutschen Rechts. Nach dem Code civil von 1804 und dem Österreichischen Allgemeinen Gesetzbuch (ABGB) von 1811 lag die Frage und der Streit einer nationalen Kodifikation in Deutschland geradezu in der Luft. Eine rasche Antwort von Savigny (1779-1861) war von grosser Wichtigkeit, zumal in Berlin Gerüchte kursierten, man wolle auf dem Wiener Kongress das ABGB von Österreich auch in Deutschland einführen. Der Code Napoleon war teilweise geltendes Recht in einigen Gebieten Deutschlands. Thibaut (1772-1840) forderte in seiner kleinen Schrift eine einheitliche Gesetzgebung für Deutschland auf dem Gebiet des bürgerlichen Rechts, worunter er das Zivil-, Straf- und Prozessrecht verstand. Thibaut beendete am 19. Juni 1814 die Niederschrift zu seinem kleinen Werk. In den Tagen der Befreiungskriege, die der Patriot Thibaut als "herzerhebende Zeiten" beschreibt, war die Forderung nach einem gemeinsamen deutschen Gesetzbuch ein wichtiger Schritt zur nationalen Vereinigung. Bereits am 11. Oktober 1814 schreibt Savigny an einen Kollegen, dass in einigen Tagen sein "kleines Buch gegen Gesetzbücher und Thibaut" fertig sein wird. Am 22. Oktober schrieb Savigny, dass bereits vorgestern einige gedruckte Exemplare in Wien (zum Wiener Kongress) eingetroffen seien. Gewaltig war das Aufsehen, als Savigny im Herbst 1814 seine Gegenschrift zu Thibauts Forderungen vorlegte, gerade war der Wiener Kongress zusammengetreten. Es wurde die berühmteste und auch folgenreichste juristische Streitschrift, die Deutschland erleben sollte. "Vom Beruf unserer Zeit" war eine auch von seinen Kritikern anerkannte glänzende Schrift, mit der Savigny zugleich die Vorschläge von Thibaut aus der öffentlichen Diskussion verbannte, damit die geforderte Kodifikation verhinderte und zugleich eine programmatische Niederschrift der historischen Rechtsschule vorlegte. Grundlage seiner Anschauung war, dass nicht die gesetzte Willkür des Staates Recht erzeuge, sondern "innere, stillwirkende Kräfte", also eine Art von Volksgeist, der die Gesellschaft eine juristische Seele einhaucht, die zu erblicken und niederzuschreiben des Juristen Handwerk und Kunst, eben ihr "Beruf" sei. - Vgl.

      US Brig Eagle dateline on Oct 14, 1814 stampless letter written by John R Briggs, surgeon aboard the USS Saratoga during the Battle of Plattsburg on Lake Champlain Sept 11, 1814. In this letter he writes to Raymond H J Perry, brother to Oliver Perry of War of 1812 fame. In the letter he writes " I sincerely regret your unfortunate illness at our late glorious success deprived the ship of your services and you no doubt of an opportunity of evincing to the world that there is yet more Perry's. Yet Sir, permit me to say you derive much consolation from the reflection of having discharged your duty". He sends more praise to Perry reflection upon his service as a ship's officer, and then discusses the fate of Sackett's Harbor and that Chauncy has no doubt been obliged to retire, and the British land and naval forces are now before the harbor. The stampless folded letter has a manuscript Plattsbh postmark, and a manuscript 20 ct rate for carriage to Bristol RI, where Raymond Perry resided.

        Some account of the fossil remains of an animal more nearly allied to fishes than any of the other classes of animals. [AND] Some further account on the fossil remains of an animal of which a description was given to the Society in 1814. [AND] Additional facts respecting the fossil remains of an animal, on the subject of which two papers have been printed in the Philosophical Transactions, showing that the bones of the sternum resemble those of the Ornithorhynchus paradoxus. [AND] On the mode of formation of the canal containing the spine marrow, and on the form of the fins (if they deserve that name) of the Proteosaurus. [AND] An account of the fossil skeleton of the Proteo-saurus. [AND] Reasons for giving the name Proteo-Saurus to the fossil skeleton which has been described.

      London, The Royal Society, 1814-1819 [1820]. Six papers in two. 4to (26.0 x 21.0 cm and slightly larger). Title page, 29 [7, 4, 9, 2, 3, 4] pp. 15 [4, 4, 2, 2, 3 (combined)] engraved plates of which several large, folded. In archival map (first four papers) and disbound, combined (last two papers). Recent half cloth map over marbled boards. Printed description of the works, and its significance and author pasted on the front board.l These six titles neatly and chronologically describe the evolution of knowledge in one of the most exciting palaeontological finds in the United Kingdom. The author, the surgeon, anatomist and palaeontologist (Sir) Edward Home (1756-1832) first thought that he dealt with a crocodilian or, rather, some kind of unknown fish. Later, however, he concluded that the fossil remains belonged to a creature intermediate between a salamander and a lizard. Much later, it became obvious that the fossil remains belonged to an ichthyosaurid. The printed information on the front cover mentions the origin of the fossil and the disputes and intrigues that arose around Home's publications. All papers included are excerpts from the Society's Philosophical Transactions and are trimmed to slightly different sizes. The title page included is for the year 1814, part I, in which the first paper was published. Some spotting and some offsetting (sometimes rather heavy) to the plates. A rare, complete ensemble. Neither in Nissen nor in Wood.
