        QUADRO ELEMENTAR DA HISTORIA NATURAL DOS ANIMAES.

POR ANTONIO D"ALMEIDA, CAVALLEIRO DA ORDEM DE CHRISTO, CIRURGIÃO DA REAL CAMARA, LENTE D"OPERAÇOENS NO HOSPITAL REAL DE S. JOZE EM LISBOA, E MEMBRO EFFECTIVO DO REAL COLLEGIO DOS CIRURGIOENS DE LONDRES. LONDRES: IMPRESSO POR H. BRYER, BRIDGE STREET, BLACKFRIARS. [Anno 1815]. Obra em 2 volumes. In 8.º de 21x12 cm. Com xix-458 e 424-xxix pags. Encadernações da época inteiras de pele com finos ferros a ouro nas lombadas. Profusamente ilustrado com 14 litografias. O 2º volume apresenta um carimbo oleográfico de posse na folha de rosto. As folhas de rosto de ambos os volumes com leves vestígios de acidulação. Ilustrações. No 1º volume: 7 estampas litografadas de J. Walker com aspectos anatómicos que permitem a classificação dos mamíferos e aves 1 tabela desdobrável com a classificação geral das classes dos animais 1 tabela desdobrável com a classificação dos mamíferos 1 tabela desdobrável com a classificação das aves 1 tabela desdobrável com a classificação dos répteis 1 tabela desdobrável com a classificação dos peixes. No 2º volume: 7 estampas litografadas de J.

No final da obra apresentam-se 3 índices das classes, ordens e géneros respectivamente em língua portuguesa em nomes latinos e em língua francesa. A importância desta obra reside exactamente nestes índices e em toda a nomenclatura portuguesa introduzida na obra, que foi da inteira responsabilidade de Félix de Avelar Brotero. Deste modo a obra possui dois prefácios: o prefácio do tradutor António d"Almeida e o prefácio do nomenclador português Avelar Brotero, que ?por ordem superior foi encarregado de juntar os nomes portugueses aos nomes franceses e latinos?, tarefa, segundo o mesmo, muito difícil devido ao estado da ciência em Portugal e ao período das Invasões Napoleónicas de que resultava não existirem nem obras portuguesas, nem zoólogos em Portugal, para esta tarefa. A ciência portuguesa tinha-se baseado no profundo conhecimento prático das espécies trazidas das colónias e na sua acumulação em colecções, sendo ?arrumadas? o melhor possível dentro das classificações lineanas. Nesta obra Brotero afirma que reviu, corrigiu e anotou esta obra de Cuvier procurando não desfigurar a versão portuguesa com galicismos e efectuando uma investigação aos vocabulários portugueses. Esta obra de Zoologia, publicada em 1797-98 em França, foi a mais reputada na sua época, tendo portanto a sua tradução para português resultado do interesse de António d"Almeida durante o período que residiu em Londres, e do patrocínio régio através do embaixador português em Inglaterra - o Conde do Funchal ? que requereu os serviços de Félix Avelar Brotero.

The tale is, first, about Robert Bruce, who liberated Scotland from English rule in the 14th century, and, second, about the romantic complications of Bruce's sister Isabel.. 267 x 210 mm.

The glue stopped holding the fine condition bookplates to front pastedown because of age. "A work justly held in high estimation by all antiquaries in literature (250 copies printed) . . . The articles . . . under their separate heads of Poetry, History, &c., with a general index to the whole, give the new edition a great superiority over the first edition." - Lowndes. Sir Samuel Egerton Brydges, 1st Baronet (30 November 1762 – 8 September 1837) was an English bibliographer and genealogist. He was also Member of Parliament for Maidstone from 1812 to 1818. Educated at Maidstone Grammar School and The King's School, Canterbury, Brydges was admitted to Queens' College, Cambridge in 1780, though he did not take a degree. He was called to the bar from the Middle Temple in 1787. He wrote some novels and poems, now forgotten, but rendered valuable service through his bibliographical publications, Censura Literaria, Titles and Opinions of Old English Books (10 vols. 1805-9), his editions of Edward Phillips's Theatrum Poetarum Anglicanorum (1800), Arthur Collins's Peerage of England (1812), and of many rare Elizabethan authors. He was a founding member of the Roxburghe Club, a publishing club of wealthy bibliophiles. He was elected a Knight Grand Commander of the Equestrian, Secular, and Chapterial Order of St. Joachim in 1807, at a Chapter held in Franconia. In 1789, the Chandos barony became dormant. Egerton Brydges attempted to claim the title, initially on behalf on his older brother Rev. Edward Tymewell Brydges, then later on his own behalf. The litigation continued from 1790 to 1803, before the claims were ultimately rejected, but he continued to style himself per legem terrae Baron Chandos of Sudeley. It seems likely that not only was the claim groundless but that the evidence was forged. He was made a baronet on 27 December 1814. He died in Geneva. (Wikipedia)

The first volume of Samuel Clarke's translation was originally published in 1729, with the second volume left incomplete at the time of his death the same year.

        Indenture made on 20th April 1815 between Garnham Blaxcell and Sir John Jamison leasing large parcels of Sydney to Jamison in receipt of payment of five shillings.

      - n.p. 1815 Folio, three pages on two conjugate leaves, folded with docket title on the last page. Paper quite discoloured but sound, ink faded but legible. Signed and sealed by Blaxcell. A Lands Titles Office stamp of 1868 on the docket doubtless relates to an application under the Real Property Act for some land originally part of Blaxcell's grant. A splendid and telling foundation document for the history of that most Australian heroic icon - continued in an unbroken line from Blaxcell to now - the unscrupulous and overreaching entrepeneur who ducks the consequences. Blaxcell was only one of the network of grasping shonks that constitute the noble pioneers of this new nation - most of them are familiar place names now - but I gather he was the first to go from titan to vanishing fugitive pretty much overnight. His empire had been precarious if not illusory since at least 1809 when he began mortgaging his property to business partner Thomas Jamison but still he was part of the consortium that made the Sydney hospital for rum deal with Macquarie and was issuing currency notes* as late as 1814 while his promissory notes continued to be dishonoured. Thomas Jamison's son, Sir John, arrived in the colony in 1814 and obviously set about collecting on Blaxcell's debts to his late father. The first and largest plot is the 1125 acre grant now known as the suburb Granville and I lost count of the smaller plots - each between 25 and 60 acres - in Petersham. I'm puzzled by what exactly this document is. There is mention in this agreement of rent of one peppercorn that I don't understand. Was this some scheme to hide rather than lose his assets or, more likely, a way for Jamison to collect his debt without joining the queue? Certainly this agreement pops up again in 1820 in the case of Campbell v. MacArthur and Oxley - crony and estate administrator of Blaxcell respectively - when the double dealing solicitor William Henry Moore boasted that he could "overturn the settlement made between Sir J. Jamison and Mr Blaxcell" (Sydney Gazette 1820). In any case, Blaxcell, aware that the authorities were closing in, snuck out of the colony in April 1817 and quickly drank himself to death in Batavia. *One of these worthless currency notes sold a couple of years ago for $6700, apparently a decent return for a 200 year wait for payment of ten shillings. Doesn't seem enough to me.

Översättning av ?Handlingar rörande hof-sekreteraren Carl Adolf Bohemanns i sitt fädernesland Swerige åren 1803 och 1814 inträffade missöden?, utgiven 1815. Carl Adolf Boheman (1764-1831) från Jönköping var en ledande frimurare, aktiv inom Illuminatiorden. Han var huvudsakligen verksam i Hamburg och i Danmark. Under förmyndartiden hade han kontakt med Reuterholm och under åren 1802-03 var han verksam i Stockholm, med stort inflytande över hertig Karl. Han blev utnämnd till hovsekreterare, erhöll svenska frimureriets högsta grad och inrättade en filial av Illuminatiorden i Stockholm. Då denna orden även sysslade med politik blev den dock snart föremål för Gustav IV Adolfs misstroende, och Boheman häktades och utvisades. Han blev även utvisad från Danmark och bosatte sig hos fursten av Waldeck. År 1814 kom han tillbaka till Sverige och krävde upprättelse och skadestånd, men blev åter utvisad. Han hade i samtiden stort rykte om insikter i frimureriets visdomar.

A lovely, large, uncut copy from the library of esteemed collector Robert Hoe, with his bookplate, as well as that of respected New York bibliophile Charles C. Auchincloss.RowlandsonÂ’s “talent for exuberant and flowing lines had affinities with the French Rococo of Fragonard, but his rollicking humour and delicate tonal effects were distinctively EnglishÂ… His repertory of themes was inexhaustible and his oeuvre has been termed the English equivalent of BalzacÂ’s Comédie humaineÂ… His overall standard is remarkably high” (Chilvers, et al., 436). “No graphic artist has surpassed Rowlandson in presenting the patterned activity of day-to-day communal existence” (Ray, 26). The text of this work was originally published in Repository of the Arts between 1809 and 1813 under the title, “Letters from Italy”; of the illustrations, only the folding map was previously published. Abbey Travel 166. Tooley 419. Library of Robert Hoe, Anderson Auction Company, May 1, 1911, lot 2839 (“a tall copy”). Bookplates, of Robert Hoe, Charles C. Auchincloss, and one other.
