A very nice copy of an important colour plate book, untouched! Abbey Life 254. Tooley 238. Prideaux 334) No matter how much Combe earned from his various publications, however, he always spent more. He died, still in debt, at his Lambeth Road address on 19 June 1823. The obituary in The Times the next day stated that: [h]e was a gentleman who, in the course of this protracted life, had suffered many fortunes, and had become known to so many people in every rank of society, that it hardly seems necessary to draw his character. There was hardly a person of any note in his time, with whose history he was not in some degree acquainted. ODNB. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        On the laws which regulate the polarisation of light by reflection from transparent bodies" in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Volume 105, 1815, Parts I and II, pp. 125-159 WITH An Essay towards the Calculus of Functions Part I and II (Babbage) in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Volume 105, 1816 Part I pp. 1-22, 23-24 AND Volume 106, 1816 Part II 179-256 WITH On the Fire-Damp of Coal Mines, and on Methods of Lighting the Mines So as to Prevent Its Explosion" (Davy) in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Volume 106, 1816, pp. 1-22, 23-24, & "An Account of an Invention for Giving Light in Explosive Mixtures of Fire-Damp in Coal Mines, by Consuming the Fire-Damp"(Dav

      - FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRESENTATION of 'Brewster's Angle, "one of Brewster's most important contributions to the science of physics" (Molecular Expressions Website). David Brewster's work on polarization of light by reflection and biaxial crystals "is important for several reasons" (Young, Optics and Lasers, 241)."First, many lasers use Brewster windows inside the cavity to reduce reflection loss. Brewster windows are important in low-gain lasers such as helium-neon lasers, where a few percent loss can completely inhibit laser action, and in high-power lasers, where antireflection coatings would be destroyed by the intense beam. "If unpolarized light is shone on a surface at Brewster's angle, the refracted wave will be partially polarized because the reflectance at Brewster's angle is 0 only for waves whose electric-field vectors lie in the plane of incidence. Waves whose electric-field vectors are perpendicular to the plane of incidence exhibit about 15% reflectance from a glass surface. A beam that passes through a number of plates of glass at Brewster's angle will be nearly 100% plane-polarized with its electric field in the plane of incidence. Polarizers made of a pile of plates are useful in laser applications where other polarizers would be damaged by the laser" (ibid). ALSO INCLUDED: First edition of the first announcement and description of an invention some have argued rescued the Industrial Revolution, Humphrey Davy's Safety Lamp. ALSO INCLUDED: First editions of Charles Babbage's first papers as well as his most important contribution to mathematics, the calculus of functions. CONDITION & DETAILS: Philosophical Transactions Volume for the year MDCCCXV (1815) and MDCCCXVI (1816) Ex-libris bearing only a miniscule "Athenaeum Library, Liverpool" stamp and at the foot (margin) of some of the plates.

      London: Printed by A.J. Valpy … Sold by Law and Whittaker,, 1815. containing Useful Hints for both the Public and Private Conduct of the Young Gentleman in, or entering, that Profession, in all it Branches - in the Course of which, and under the Remarks on Gunnery, are some Observations on the Naval Actions with America. Also a Plan for improving the Naval System, as far as it regards that most Useful Set of Petty Officers, the Midshipmen. By an Officer in the Navy. Octavo. Original green on blue paper-covered boards, paper label to the spine. Ex-Cruising Club Association library, their gilt initials to the tail of the spine, gilt stamp to the upper board, and bookplate to the front pastedown only, a little rubbed, head of the spine pulled, light toning to the text, but overall a very good copy. First edition. Extremely uncommon, COPAC lists copies in NMM and at Oxford only, OCLC adds seven copies in North America, and one at the Alexander Turnbull Library, New Zealand. Unusual naval conduct book, often referred to in the literature, but very rarely encountered. Claxton entered the service in 1804 as a first class volunteer on board the Melampus, seeing considerable action in her. He was later in the Leopard and was a witness to the surrender of the Chesapeake to her in 1807. In 1809 he joined the Barfleur, 98 guns, Vice-Admiral Berkeley, making lieutenant in December 1810. "During the latter year he appears to have been much employed on the detached service in the Tagus, where he rendered appreciated co-operation to the troops occupying the lines of Torres Vedras, and had command of the gun-boats attached to the army … While belonging next from Oct. 1812 to March 1815 to the Ramillies … [he] distinguished himself in command of the attack upon Baltimore in Sept. 1814; and was likewise present at the capture of the islands in Passamaquoddy Bay, and the bombardment of Stonington" (O'Byrne). He subsequently commanded the Tartar revenue-cutter on the Yarmouth Station - "the first vessel of the kind given to a naval officer" - and in 1834 was appointed Harbour-Master of Bristol "and is the officer under whose surveillance were built those celebrated steam-vessels the Great Western and Great Britain". Less laudably he was a prominent Bristolian campaigner against the abolition of slavery, offering to fight a duel with the agent of the anti-slavery candidate in the 1830 election. An excellent copy of a highly desirable title.

      Ledoux et Tenré 1815 - A very good copy of the very scarce 1815 edition. Three volumes (400,402,392pp) rebound by R. Korytowsk of Johannesburg, in blue cloth with gilt spine lettering. The bindings are in near fine condition with almost minimal wear and no bumping to the edges or corners. Inside the contents are very good. Generally very clean and unmarked, especially in vols I and II. Volume III has had some of its pages opened roughly, leaving them ragged to the edges, but with no loss of text. One page has been repaired to the corner with partial loss of text, and several pages towards the end of the volume have damp stains. All three volumes retain their engraved frontispieces. This work was first published in 1781 by Jean Louis Hubert Simon Deperthes in 1781 and was augmented and updated by Jean Baptiste Eyriès for this second edition of 1815. The work deals with historical shipwrecks and other disasters at sea, and contains the narratives of 38 disastrous voyages, including Gerrit de Veer's hibernation on Nova Zembla (1596-97), the burning of Bontekoe's ship in 1619, the fate of the Batavia, wrecked on the Australian coast in 1629, and the story of the Scots castaway Alexander Selkirk, who was marooned on Juan Fernández in 1704 and would later be the model for Defoe's Robinson Crusoe.

        The Grounds of an Opinion on the Policy of Restricting the Importation of Foreign Corn; Intended as An Appendix to Observations on the Corn Laws.

      London: Printed for John Murray:, First edition, 1815 - 8vo., 48pp., with early owner signature to foot of title page and some occasional light scattered spotting to first few leaves only, neatly bound in later navy blue buckram. A generally VG+ first editon copy of this rare and important work. (Goldsmith, 21177; Lowndes, 1459; Kress, C6535). Robert Malthus (he went by his middle name) was born in "the Rookery", a country estate in Dorking, Surrey (south of London). He was the second son of Daniel Malthus, a country gentleman and avid disciple of Jean-Jacques Rousseau and David Hume (both of whom he knew personally). Accordingly, Malthus was educated according to Rousseauvian precepts by his father and a series of tutors. Malthus entered Jesus College, Cambridge, in 1784 and was ordained a minister of the Church of England in 1788. He earned his M.A. in 1791. "One of the founders of modern economics," Malthus was credited by Keynes with framing the theory "that a lack of effective demand can cause economic crises" (PMM 251). In 1805, Malthus "became professor of history and political economy at the newly founded college of Haileybury [where] he gave lectures on political economy, which, as he declares, the hearers not only understood, but 'did not even find dull.' The lectures led him to consider the problem of rent. The theory at which he arrived is partly indicated in two pamphlets upon the corn laws, published in 1814 and 1815. In 1814, Malthus launched himself into the Corn Laws debate then raging in parliament. After a first pamphlet, Observations, outlining the pros and cons of the proposed protectionist laws, Malthus tentatively supported the free traders, arguing that as cultivation as British corn was increasingly expensive to raise, it was best if Britain at least in part on cheaper foreign sources for its food supply. He changed his mind the next year, in his 1815 Grounds of an Opinion pamphlet, siding now with the protectionists. Foreign laws, he noted, often prohibit or raise taxes on the export of corn in lean times, which meant that the British food supply was captive to foreign politics. By encouraging domestic production, Malthus argued, the Corn Laws would guarantee British self-sufficiency in food. The doctrine thus formulated has been generally accepted by later economists" (DNB). "A substantial contribution to general economics The rent theory it propounded [is] historically significant because it attracted [Malthus' friend and correspondent David] Ricardo from money into general economics and supplied him with an important building block" for his work of "determining the distribution of national income between landowners, capitalists and workers."

Hier der Bericht seiner zweiten Expedition, die er im Auftrag der Regierung unternahm und auf der er zu Tode kam. "Parks wissenschaftliche Beobachtungen auf dem Gebiet der Botanik und der Meteorologie dieser Region und über das soziale und häusliche Leben der Farbigen sind von bleibendem Wert" (Carter/Muir). Parks "career was short, but he made the first great practical advance in the opening-up of Central Africa" (Printing and the Mind of Man, p. 153). This journal of Park's second African expedition begun in 1805 to explore by canoe and find the source of the Niger, where he died.

        Abbildung der deutschen Holzarten für Forstmänner und Liebhaber der Botanik.

      - Berlin, in der Schüppelschen Buchhandlung, 1815-1820. 2 volumes. 4to (242 x 202mm). pp. (4), 302, with 216 fine handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary green half calf, spines with gilt lines and lettering. Willdenow, Curator of the Berlin Botanical Garden, developed the garden from modest proportions into one of the most comprehensive in Europe. He was the founder of the 19th century Berlin school of botany and Humboldt was his lifelong friend and scientific collaborator. The present work is most probably his rarest work; neither a copy in the Plesch- nor in the De Belder-collection. The beautiful engraved and handcoloured plates are after drawings by Friederich Guimpel, a famous botanical artist illustrating among others Hayne's extensive work on medical plants. The present work, which was published after Willdenow's death, and his 'Hortus Berolinensis' are his most splendid publications. A few plates trimmed with some loss of plate number. Title of text volume 2 has not been bound in and the text for the two volumes runs from page 1 to 302 as is correct.Nissen BBI, 2154. Stafleu & Cowan 2214 (listed under Guimpel).

        Kleiner Landschaftsausschnitt mit grasbewachsenem Felsen und Bäumen.

      . Bleistift auf gelblichem Bütten mit angeschnittenem Wasserzeichen: Traube im Wappenschild. 23,5 x 40 cm. Vertikale Knickfalte im rechten Bildteil geglättet, kleine Fehlstelle an der linken oberen Ecke, vereinzelt minimal fleckig, im unteren Rand leicht bestoßen, kleine Annotationen in der rechten unteren Ecke in Bleistift, sonst in frischer Erhaltung.- Die im zügigen Duktus gezeichnete Landschaftsskizze fertigte Rohden vermutlich während seines dritten römischen Aufenthaltes in Rom um 1815 an.. Nach dem Besuch der Kasseler Akademie brach Rohden schon als 17jähriger nach Italien auf. Seit 1795 lebte er vorwiegend in Rom. In Deutschland hielt er sich 1801/02 und 1811/12 auf und 1827/29, als er zum Hofmaler in Kassel ernannt worden war. Obwohl ihn diese Berufung und das damit verbundene Gehalt, wie J.M. Wagner (1777-1858) Anfang 1827 an König Ludwig I. schrieb, aus langjähriger Mutlosigkeit aufrichtete, ließ er sich bereits 1829 beurlauben, um nach Rom zurückzukehren. Die Unterstützung, ein großzügiges Jahresgehalt, die ihm auch nach der Entlassung aus dem Hofdienst zuteil wurde, sicherte seine Existenz, für die seine sehr sorgfältige, aber seit den 40er Jahren nicht sehr umfangreiche Produktion allein nicht ausgereicht hätte.
