        The Journal of Llewellin Penrose, a Seaman

      Lon., 1815.. 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. Four volumes bound in two.

        BRINDES DE MENEGHIN A L'OSTARIA. Per l?Entrada in Milan de Sova S. C. Majstaa I.R.A. Franzesch Primm In compagnia de Sova Miee l'Imperatriz Maria Luvisa.

      press Antoni Fortunaa Stella, in Santa Margarita 1815 In-8 p. (mm. 200x129), bross. originale blu incorniciata da duplice greca: sul piatto anter. al centro ?Brindes?, su quello poster. ?Prezzo centesimi 50?. Plaquette di pp. 16 (numer. da p. 4 a 14; le ultime 2 bianche; al verso del frontespizio ?Stampaa da Giovann Pirotta, in Santa Redegonda?). "Edizione originale" di questo importante testo. Il componimento era già pronto e stampato perché ?Francesco I giunse in Milano nelle ore pomeridiane del 31 dicembre 1815. Aveva seco la sua terza moglie Maria Luisa Beatrice (sposata il 6 giugno 1808), ammalata di etisia. L?accoglienza ai Sovrani fu freddissima, appunto come era la giornata, ma non mancarono i soliti festeggiamenti ufficiali.. Per quell?occasione fu scritto questo ditirambo, pazzo, scomposto, ubriaco, che mentre caratterizza lo stato degli animi del popolano, spiega abbastanza chiaramente la velata e fina satira del poeta, il quale, per celebrare un nuovo dominatore straniero, trova la finezza di fingersi ebbro, onde sferzare così più liberamente quella casta che aveva brigato tanto indegnamente pel richiamo degli Austriaci, mentre avrebbe dovuto sapere che nessun vantaggio ne sarebbe venuto alla patria comune invasa e messa a ruba da novelli padroni?. Così da ?Poesie di C. Porta? annotate da Policarpo Campagnani, Libr. Robecchi (1887), p. 583. Cfr. Orlando Cecco,88 - Cat. Hoepli,293 - Predari, p. 375. Bello e fresco esemplare.

      Windsor Vermont: Printed by Oliver Farnsworth 1815 Windsor[, Vermont]: Printed by Oliver Farnsworth, 1815. First Edition. Small Square 8vo. . Wonderful original printed steel blue paper over wooden boards. Spine nearly gone, wear to boards, but internally good with some darkening and mostly marginal dampstaining. In pale blue-green cloth case with black spine label, gilt. McCorison, Vermont Imprints, #1717; American Imprints 34198; Not in Welch; Nietz, Old Textbooks, p. 20 . In referring to Bradley's "An Improved Spelling Book," similar in format to this one and published the same year, Nietz informs us that "this book was different from many others in several respects. First, Bradley frankly acknowledged that 'the extracts have been taken from Webster, Wood, Picket, Alden, Bingham, Flint, Murray, Hubbard, Fordyce, Walker, the American Gentleman's Pronouncing Dictionary, Dr. Johnson, Dr. Morse, and Dr. Blair [all authors of spellers].' A second different feature was that all of the content, other than the spelling words, was presented in catechetical form" (Nietz)

        [Hand coloured images]

      About 1815-1825. Plate marks 22 x 27 cm. The whole sheets 22,5 x 27,5 cm. Hand coloured etchings. Printed om whatman paper. A short tear to one of the margins. Some minor creases. Near fine condition... Two leaves with uncut images depicting the twelve signs of the zodiac. The images shows people and animals in humorous situations illustrating each sign. Very charming. The swedish names of the signs can be found below each image. The sheets are supposed to be cut and the images bound into a book or calender. Unclear for what swedish work they were published. I have not been able to find any trace of other copies. Maybe they were never published or no copies of the work to which they were intended are in exsistence any more. Both leaves have a manuscript signature in the lower right margin, which I can not decipher with certainty. Extremely rare ofcourse

In: "Annales de Chimie, ou Recueil de Mémoires concernant la Chemie" Tome 95. - 336 pp. (the entire volume offered). Gay-Lussac's paper: pp. 136-231. Some scattered brownspots throughout.. First appearance of this milestone paper in organic chemistry, in which Gay-Lussac describes the preparation, the chemical reactions, and the determination of the physical properties of prussic acid."One of the most importent contributions of Gay-Lussac was his work on hydro-cyanid acid and its compounds. In the course of his investigations on the combining volumes of gases he had prepared gaseous hydrogen cyanide. This led him to the study of related compounds, and in 1815 he published a paper, "Recherches sur l'acide prussique" (the paper offered), wherein he announced the discovery of cyanogen and chlor-cyanogen and the composition of hydrocyanic acid. His demonstartion that hydrogen cyanide contains no oxygen added another oxygen-free acid to those already known (hydrogen halides and sulfide) and contributed to the overthrow of Lavoisier's oxygen theory of acids. Gay-Lussac found that the cyano radical,the first orgianic radical clearly recognized, could act as an element analogous to chlorine, passing unchanged through various reactions. This concept of an organic radical was importent to organic chemistry."(Leicester & Klickstein "A Source Book of Chemistry", p. 293). - Partington IV, p.85 a. p. 253. - Roy G.

        Abbildung der deutschen holzarten fuer forstmaenner 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 and Cowan 2214 (listed under Guimpel).
