        Six autograph letters to his brother John Crichton, 1815-19

      - Series of lively family letters from Dr James Crichton of Friars Carse (beloved of Burns) including accounts of excursions to John Christian Curwen's agricultural show at Workington and a funeral attended with Sir Robert Laurie of Maxwelton – six autograph letters signed ("Jas Crichton", "J. Crichton", "J.C.") to his brother John Crichton: c19pp. 8vo, Friars Carse, March 1815-February 1819. Some letters dusty at folds, one slightly torn at fold, three at the seal; four with integral leaves, two with separate cover sheets, all addressed to "John Crichton . . . Sanquhar", endorsed, and with the recipient’s manuscript filing notes. Intimate correspondence written from the former home of Robert Burns's friend and neighbour Robert Riddell by the philanthropist whose extraordinary benefaction founded the Crichton Royal Hospital, Dumfries. James Crichton (1765-1823) was an East India Company surgeon who made his fortune in China (but not necessarily through the opium trade), and served as physician to the Governor-General of Bengal - the second Earl of Mornington, created in 1799 Marquess Wellesley. On Crichton's return to Scotland in 1808 he bought, through his elder brother, John, the estate of Friars Carse, five miles north of Dumfries and celebrated in the poems of Burns ("Written in Friars Carse Hermitage", "The Whistle" &c): who was, until they fell out, intimate friends with its then owner (it marched with Burns's farm, Ellisland), the hard-drinking Robert Riddell (1755-1794). The Sanquhar Crichtons were genuine burgh worthies. The Admirable Crichton, also James (1560-1582), was a Sanquhar man. Dr James's grandfather John was Provost of Sanquhar for a record 29 years. Dr James's father, another James (died 1793), followed his father as Provost and his father-in-law, James Orr, as town clerk. John Crichton of Skeoch (1763-1834), Dr James's brother and correspondent, succeeded their father as town clerk, 1789-1807. In 1810 Dr James Crichton married Elizabeth Grierson (1779-1862), daughter of Sir Robert Grierson of Lag, fifth Bt, but they had no children of their own. Crichton, outlived by 37 years by his wife (and by 16 even by his father-in-law, who lived to the age of 106), left £100,000 on his death for such charitable project as she saw fit. After failing to secure approval for a university in Dumfries, she founded a lunatic asylum instead. The Crichton Institution, later the Crichton Royal Hospital, opened in 1839, and became a leader in humane treatment of psychiatric patients and a pioneer hospital for occupational therapy. (Ironically, the site now is a university campus.) James Crichton's correspondence veers from the solicitous (enquiring and advising on matters of family health) and the businesslike (seeking his brother's advice, asking him to run local errands) to the playful (a running joke about an awkward mare). His longest letter covers the set piece of a Cumberland agricultural show hosted by the great agriculturist John Christian Curwen. The first (2 March 1815) insists on news of another friend of Burns: "I have to request you will write to me a line by tomorrow’s Post, and give me the latest intelligence you have recd from Ayr respecting Mr [John] Logans State of Health." John Logan of Knockshinnoch and Laight (1746-1816) survived a year after this letter, dying in Ayr on 9 March 1816. A kinsman of the Crichtons, he had subscribed for no fewer than 20 copies of the Kilmarnock Edition. Further details on request.

        Viaggio di La Perouse intorno al Mondo

      Dalla Tipgrafia Sonzogno e Comp, Milan 1815 - Four volumes bound in two, small octavo, with a folding world map outlined in colour and 16 hand-coloured plates; a nice set in contemporary quarter calf, flat spines gilt, the marbled sides a little rubbed. Italian edition with coloured plates. Quite uncommon: the first Italian edition of the voyages of La Pérouse, with a lovely series of handcoloured plates based on the original images of Gaspard Duché de Vancy done for the official French edition. Part of their charm lies in the way that they have been simplified to suit the format of the Italian edition. The existence of this Italian edition is testament to La Pérouse's enduring fame throughout Europe, appearing as it did before even Captain Cook's voyages were translated (Navigazioni di Cook, 1816-17). It was almost fifteen more years before Peter Dillon published his discovery of the wreck of the Astrolabe and Boussole on Vanikoro and the map for this edition therefore still shows La Pérouse's track finishing at Botany Bay. The disappearance of the entire La Pérouse expedition overshadows what was in reality a great Pacific voyage. While primarily a voyage of exploration and discovery, the possibilities of the fur trade and of French expansion into the Pacific and Asia were evidently investigated in depth. La Pérouse's habit of forwarding records whenever opportunity offered ensured their survival. The first portion was forwarded by sea from Macao; the second (Macao to Kamchatka) went overland with De Lesseps, and the final despatches from Botany Bay. 'Published as part of a series, Raccolta di Viaggi dopo quelli di Cook, of which, according to a series title, this comprised Volumes I-IV but is complete in itself. Strathern also lists a Livorno 1827 edition and a Naples 1831 edition. There is also a Naples 1833 edition' (Forbes). It was evidently sold by subscription: two extensive lists of subscribers appear at the end of the first and last volumes (respectively 26 and 27 pp., so a serious business). In both of them the name of Lover or Lovera figures, who is identified as being from Milan. "G. Lovera" also appears in gilt on the spines of the two volumes. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A treatise on dry rot

      London, 1815. London, 1815. Color lithographed plates. xviii, (2 pages plates), 185 pp. I know... dry rot is not a particularly enthralling subject. But it was of great concern to the Royal Navy, and Bowden gives the matter thorough treatment here. This is an early book on the subject. More importantly, perhaps, it is also a very early use of color lithography in book publishing. The two plates showing samples of dry rot are rather arresting. From the Scott collection of marine architecture, with their bookplate. Scott 517. Bound in contemporary full diced calf with gilt dentelles and elaborate spine decoration.

Unter dem Einfluss von W. von Kobell (1766-1853) und den eigenen Kriegserlebnissen in Frankreich 1813-1815 entstanden seine ersten Schlachtenbilder. 1818 reiste er nach Italien. Die 20er Jahre brachten steigende Anerkennung. 1833 begleitete er König Otto I. nach Griechenland, 1839 reiste er nach Russland. In der ersten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts zählt Hess, wie W. von Kobell und A. Adam (1786-1862), zu den bedeutendsten Schlachtenmalern in München.

Von 1797-1798 war er Professor an der Akademie Bern, von 1802-1809 Honorarprofessor für Anatomie und Chirurgie, von 1809-1819 Professor für Zoologie an der Akademie Genf. Als Naturforscher wies er 1794, fast 150 Jahre vor Donald Griffin und Robert Galambos, die Bedeutung des Gehörs für die Orientierung der Fledermäuse nach. Zusammen mit seiner Tochter Christine erarbeitete er 1807 eine auf der Flügelform basierende Klassifikation der Hymenopteren (Hautflügler), erforschte das Plankton des Genfersees und inventarisierte dessen Fische. 1807 gründete er in Genf ein Frauenspital. Sein Ruf als Mediziner wuchs mit den Preisen, die er in Paris erhielt für seine Arbeiten über die Gase im menschlichen Körper (1787, publiziert 1797), die Ernährung der Neugeborenen mit der Flasche (1788, teilweise publiziert 1830) und die Angina pectoris (1813, publiziert 1815).

        Jeu Instructif des Peuples et Costumes des Quatre Parties du Monde et des Terres Australes

      Paris: Chez Basset, 1815.. Paris:: Chez Basset,. 1815.. Very good condition. A scarce French lotto game illustrated with the newly discovered inhabitants of Australia, New Zealand, New Guinea, Java and Tahiti, as well people from other parts of the globe. The peoples and costumes of the world form the motif of this spiral journey around the world, each illustrated with numbered vignettes, beginning with China and ending at France. The instructions to the game are printed at the center.& & The game follows the spiral form of the traditional game played as early as the 1570s, called "jeu de l'oie" or game of the goose, which consists of a track with 63 consecutively numbered spaces arranged in a spiral. Players advanced according to throws of the dice, and scattered throughout were images of a goose, rewarding the player by doubling the distance just moved; other spaces contained penalties. & & This game evolved from the jeu de l'oie tradition; it has penalties and bonuses related to landing on certain numbered spaces, for example: landing on any of the countries of Europe allows the player to move again by the same distance; landing on space 19 (traditionally represented by an inn, but here the hospitable people of Tahiti) means the player waits 2 turns; landing on space 42 (traditionally a maze, but here Japanese warriors repelling foreign navigators with spears) means the player returns to space 30; and landing on space 58 (traditionally "death", but here the people of New Zealand preparing to eat a European tied to a stake) means going all the way back to space 1. The instructions at the center refer to number 58, as New Zealand "ile habitee par les Anthropophages" a reference to cannibals. Australia, space 7, here called "Nouvelle Hollande (Terres Australes), is illustrated with aborigines around a fire (after Baudin). & & The vignette for the final space, number 63, depicts a statue of King Henry IV on a pedestal. This perhaps demonstrates the game maker wanting to steer clear of the recent humiliation of the defeat of Napoleon, which he accomplished by choosing a king who united France and brought prosperity. Henry IV was given the sobriquet "le roi de la poule au pot" having wished for "A chicken in every peasant's pot every Sunday". In the four corners are allegorical representations of the continents.& & Andre Basset (c. 1720 - 1865) was from a well-known French family of publishers and engravers active on the Rue St. Jacques, Paris. Basset produced low cost optical views of European cities and also games, maps & prints.& & Copper engraving on thick laid paper, some short closed tears repaired from the verso (space 25 & center), margins a little dusty, overall very good condition. Printed area 24 x 18". & & Allemagne, Henry-Renè d': "Le noble jeu de l'oie en France, de 1640 à 1950" (The noble board game of the Goose in France 1640-1950)" Ed Grund, Parigi 1950 (Tav. 45).

        The Journal of Llewellin Penrose, a Seaman

      London, 1815. 4 vols. bound in two. 12mo. xvi, 239; 217; 215; 197 pp. Novel of a seafaring life based on the author’s true experience. But the story is better than that. The author was William Williams, and he was the first teacher of American painter Benjamin West, whose recollections of Williams appear in the introduction to this work. The publisher had befriended Williams, only to discover, on Williams’ death, the manuscript, which he put into print. The book made quite a splash when it first came out, Byron is said to have remarked, “I have never read so much of a book at first sitting in my life. He kept me up half the night, and made me dream of him in the other half.” A scarce and unusual item, of equal interest to art and maritime historians.

A first edition, first printing, printed in French but in London. An English edition was published later in the year by the same publishers. A scarce book. Would benefit from a rebind and very much worthwhile. Scarce. Contains an important early account of travel in America and among its natives. The famous chapter detailing Chateaubriand's night among the savages reveals his romanticism on the subject. Much content also on Mackenzie's journey of discoveryacross the North American continent. Francois-Rene, vicomte de Chateaubriand (September 4, 1768 July 4, 1848) was a French writer, politician and diplomat. He is considered the founder of Romanticism in French literature. Chateaubriands musical prose enriched the French language. Although his accounts of travel were plagiaristic and partly imaginary, they were rich and moving.

There is some wear to the extremities, including a tear with significant loss to the spine. The boards are also chipped and bumped, and the paper is rubbed.
