        Viaggio di Signor Pallas in Diverse Province dell'Imperio Russo Sino ai Confini della China Compendiati dal Cav. Compagnoni Con tavole in rame colorate (5 Vols.) [nella serie intitotita "Raccolta di Viaggi Dopo Quelli di Cook" esequita tanto per mare quanto per terra, e non pubblicati fin ora in lingua italiana]

      Milano: Tipografia Sonzogno e Comp., 1816. First Edition thus. Wraps. Very Good. 12mo. (18 by 11 cm.) Five volumes. With 22 plates, most hand-colored. This is the first Italian version of Pallas' travels to Russia. The costume plates are richly colored and lovely. The leaves have a nice rag content and are thus quite clean, even uncommonly so, compared to most Italian publications of the early nineteenth century. The work is complete as of itself; it is a part of a larger series of travel journals translated into Italian at the time. In this series, this book constitutes Tomo XIII. This copy has the original wraps. These have creases and soiling. Still, they can be regarded as well-preserved and of interest from the perspective of publishing practices of the era.

        Map of the United States with Contiguous British & Spanish Possessions

      Philadelphia 1816 - John Melish (1767-1822) “Map of the United States with Contiguous British & Spanish Possessions” Philadelphia: 1816 Copperplate engraving with outline color 49” x 63” framed This landmark wall map, by John Melish, is highly coveted by collectors, as it is the first map to show the United States potentially stretching from the Atlantic to the Pacific, giving visual expression to the idea of “Manifest Destiny.” In the early 19th century, many Americans felt it was their mission to expand the borders of the United States westward for ideological, political and economic reasons. This map was published just as the notion of Manifest Destiny was crystallizing in the general American consciousness, and predicted the glorious fate that the young nation anticipated. This grand map of the United States was also highly accurate and advanced in it's depiction of the geography of the United States, as it used information from the travel accounts of early 19th century explorers such as Zebulon Pike, Lewis and Clarke, Thomas Nuttall and William Darby. As Walter Ristow, a legendary American mapping historian, states of this map, “Melish played a foremost role in many and varied sources of the geographical and cartographical knowledge of the period, and presenting it systematically and graphical for the edification and enlightenment of the citizens of the voting republic.” John Melish was a highly educated Scottish merchant who settled in Philadelphia in 1811, eventually to become one of the first great cartographers on the American continent. Melish drew on a number of official state maps to produce this mammoth map of the United States, which was used on several occasions to determine boundary lines between the United States and Mexico. This is a highly coveted first printing from 1816 and was updated frequently over the following several years as new discoveries came to light. Melish died in 1822, and his plates were then used by James Finlayson to publish new states of the map in 1823. It is a classic in the history of American mapping.

        Emma: a Novel

      London: Printed for John Murray,, 1816. In Three Volumes. 3 volumes, octavo (170 × 100 mm). Bound without half titles in contemporary black half calf, spines gilt in compartments, marbled sides. Housed in a dark blue cloth slipcase. Contemporary bookseller's ticket to each front pastedown. Bindings lightly rubbed, spine to volume I skilfully repaired, spotting and a little marking to contents. A very good set. First edition of perhaps the most perfectly constructed of Jane Austen's novels. She had fallen out with Egerton over publication of Mansfield Park and transferred to Murray, who published the second edition of that book and the first edition of Emma on the same terms: each was published at the author's expense, with profits to the author after payment of a 10 per cent commission to the publisher. In keeping with Murray's stated views on edition sizes, 2000 copies were printed. Emma is the only one of Jane Austen's novels to bear a dedication, to the Prince Regent, the arrangement of which generated a richly comic correspondence between the author and the Prince Regent's librarian.

        Melon] Scarlet Flesh Rock

      G. Brookshaw, [London] 1816 - A fine image from Brookshaw's masterpiece: 'Pomona Britannica; or, A Collection of the Most Esteemed Fruits'. George Brookshaw's 'Pomona Britannica' is the finest work on fruit and flowers ever produced. Its breathtaking images display a level of technical virtuosity and beauty that distinguish this magnificent work as a true work of art. As a retired cabinetmaker, Brookshaw produced his seminal botanical study late in his career, at first publishing it in parts and then as a complete edition in 1812. The fact that this outstanding work took ten years to complete is evident in the quality of its images and the care with which Brookshaw executed each individual picture. 'Pomona Britannica' was produced as a visual record of the best available varieties of fruit in an attempt to encourage gardeners to experiment with growing fruit, and illustrates examples found in the Royal gardens at Hampton Court, Kensington Gardens, and the private gardens of the Prince of Wales in Blackheath. 'Pomona Britannica' differs from other botanical works in its dark aquatinted backgrounds and its stylized compositions. By using aquatint to create a contrasting background, Brookshaw manages to produce a truly dramatic effect. His use of stylized composition distinguishes his pictures from the dry scientific illustrations found in other botanical studies and creates an exceptionally beautiful visual experience. 'Pomona Britannica' is not only a didactic study, it is a masterpiece of illustration in which every picture is a testament to the artist's talent and ingenuity. Cf. Dunthorne 50; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p. 81; cf. Nissen BBI 244; cf. Sandra Raphael An Oak Spring Pomona 40a. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In good condition. Image size: 16 x 12 3/4 inches.

        Napoleon's Mounted Chasseurs on a Campaign

      1816. Two oil paintings on canvas; approximately 10 x 13 inches or 25 x 32 cm. In contemporary wood gilt frames, with a label pasted onto the back of each canvas dated 1816 and signed, "C. M". These unidentified works depict French cavalry officers -- Napoleon's mounted Chasseurs of the Imperial Guard or mounted Red Lancers -- on one of the 1812-14 Napoleonic campaigns across Europe. One depicts the mounted officers in the foreground bringing up the rear of a column of soldiers advancing with a covered wagon crossing over a stone bridge in a European valley at dawn. The other depicts the same column of soldiers and wagons at rest along a river in front of a stone building, with the mounted officers in the foreground overlooking the scene. There is moderate soiling to the canvas and frame, which can easily be cleaned; else fine with no visible cracks to the pigments. A very fine pair of paintings in the manner of Hippolyte Lecomte (1781-1857), who painted many similar scenes of the Napoleonic wars, and also of Louis Lejeune (1775-1848); Charles Thevenin (1764-1838); and Nicolas Antoine Taunay (1755-1838). .

        Chronologischer Ausweis uiber die von dem am 19. November 1815 im Wirtshause zu Martersdorf bei Horn gefänglich eingezogenen berüchtigten Räuber Johann Georg Grasel verübten [.] 202 Verbrechen".

      Wien, 7. XII. 1816. - 14 SS. auf 8 Bll. Folio. Fadengeheftet. Ein von Stabsauditor Höllinger verantwortetes detailliertes Verzeichnis von Ort, Zeit und Umständen der Johann Georg Grasl (1790-1818) zur Last gelegten Verbrechen, davon 194 "noch als Civilist" und "die letzten 8 Diebstähle aber nebst der Desertion als Soldat". Beginnend am 17. März 1806 mit einem Diebstahl in Raps, besteht die überwiegende Mehrzahl von Grasls Verbrechen aus Diebstählen, daneben finden sich auch die Tatbestände Raub und Totschlag. Eine sehr ausführliche Schilderung der Geschehnisse findet sich nach einem am 3. April 1813 in Streitdorf verübten Diebstahl: "[H]ierwegen wurde Jo. Ge. Grasl gleich am nächsten Morgen bei Mallebern durch den ihm zu Pferde nachgekommnen Hausknecht Joseph Reich aus Ober Hollabrunn, nachdem er diesen mit seinem beigehabten Messer 2 leichte Wunden versetzt hatte, angehalten, und unter Arrest zum Landgericht nach Schönborn geführt, alldort auch untersucht, weil er aber, um aus jenem Arreste früher wegzukommen, fälschlich für einen Deserteur von Würzburg [.] sich ausgab, und daselbst unter dem Nahmen Franz Schönauer gedient zu haben, vorbrachte, so ist solcher ohne weitern sammt dem mit ihm eingezogenen Ignatz Stangl dersertirten Unter Canonier vom 2ten Feld Artillerie Regimente in das hiesige Staabs-Stockhaus eingeliefert, von hier dann wegen Complicitas mit erwähntem Arrestanten Stangl dem bemeldeten Artillerie Regimente zur Untersuchung übergeben worden, aus dessen Cassern am Rennwege er gleich in der ersten Nacht mittels gewaltsamer Erbrechung des Stockhaus Fensters entwich [.]". - Die letzte hier enthaltene Eintragung datiert vom 10. November 1815, wo er in Echsenbach wieder einen Diebstahl zu verantworten hatte. - Mit voranschreitendem Alter verstärkt dem Trunk zuneigend, wurde Grasl schließlich durch ein Komplott in einem Wirtshaus durch Opium außer Gefecht gesetzt und verhaftet; der Hauptgrund für das am 31. Jänner 1818 vollzogene Todesurteil ist die in dem vorliegenden Verzeichnis als Nr. 148 numerierte Straftat aus Zwettl vom 18. Mai 1814 "Räuberischer Todtschlag und respec. Raubmord".

        The Life Of William Hutton

      Baldwin Craddock & Joy London + Beilby & Knotts Birmingham 1816 - Quite rare 1816 FIRST EDITION with 402 pages. Engraved portrait in the front(see pictures). Marbled boards, original leather label on spine. Some browning to pages, the front board is a bit loose and there is some pencil writing on one of the blank pages plus a tiny sticker on the front decorated pages that relates to the book. A small barely legible stamp of a previous owner on the publisher page. Otherwise, a very solid copy of this wonderful autobiography of William Hutton published in 1816 the year after his death. William Hutton (30 September 1723 – 1815) was a poet and the first significant historian of Birmingham, England. In 1746 he taught himself bookbinding, and three years later opened a shop in Southwell. He moved to Birmingham in 1750 and opened a small bookshop. He married Sarah Cock from Aston-on-Trent in 1755 and they had three sons and a daughter, Catherine Hutton (1756-1846), who became a writer. In 1756 he opened a paper warehouse – the first in Birmingham – which became profitable. He built a country house on Bennetts Hill in Washwood Heath, and bought a house in High Street. He published History of Birmingham in 1782 and was also elected as Fellow of the Antiquarian Society of Scotland (F. A. S. S.). He was elected overseer of the poor, and in 1787, to the Court of Requests, a small claims court for nineteen years, handling over 100,000 claims. Both his houses were destroyed in the Birmingham Riots in 1791 (the Priestley Riots) leading to his historical account in Narrative of the riots in this, his autobiography. He is generally held to be the first person in modern times to walk the entire length of Hadrian's Wall, producing an account of his 1801 journey in The History of the Roman Wall. Walking 600 miles from his Birmingham home, along the wall, and back home again, he wrote in the preface, "I have given a short sketch of my approach to this famous Bulwark; have described it as it appears in the present day, and stated my return. Perhaps, I am the first man that ever traveled the whole length of this Wall, and probably the last that will ever attempt it ." He completed his autobiography The life of William Hutton just before his death in 1815. He is commemorated by a blue plaque on Waterstone's bookshop on High Street, near the start of New Street, Birmingham and as a Bas relief on Derby's Exeter Bridge close to the Mill where he did his apprenticeship. His memoirs paint a brief picture of the highlights of each year of his life from 1725, where he writes that "memory now comes to the aid the pen", to 1812, when he becomes too old to continue. An example of his prodigious memory was the way he was able to recall, when he was in his eighties,at least one trivial anecdote for every day of his life from the age of 10, apart from thirteen days. This is an absorbing work which gives a first-hand account of life in the eighteenth century and the way he progressed from the being the child of an alcoholic father with nothing in the world to being a wealthy and notable businessman, author and antiquarian.

        THE LIFE OF WILLIAM HUTTON, F.A.S.S. Including a particular account of the riots at Birmingham in 1791, to which is subjoined, the history of his family, written by himself, and published by his daughter.

      London: Baldwin Craddock and Joy; and Beilby and Knotts Birmingham 1816 - 8vo, (210x132mm), viii,398p. Frontispiece portrait engraved by Thomas Ranson; the frontis. and title page heavily browned, some occasional spotting thereafter. Modern quarter cloth. Hutton was initially an apprentice in a Derby silk mill before undertaking a second apprenticeship as a stocking-maker in Nottingham. In 1746, seeing bookbinding as an alternative occupation to stocking-making he began to teach himself bookbinding on books bought cheaply; firstly on three unbound volumes of the Gentleman's Magazine which he fastened together in a rough way. The binding materials and tools available locally were inadequate, and in 1749, to acquire better, he borrowed 3 guineas from his sister and walked to London and back, covering the 129 miles each way in three days and spending 10s. 8d. on board and lodging. He resolved to set up as a bookseller, bookbinder, and stationer in Birmingham which had impressed him with the beauty of its buildings and the vivacity of its people. As a preliminary step he took a shop in the market place in Southwell, where there was no other bookseller, and every Saturday walked the 14 miles from Nottingham and back, carrying up to 30 lb. In 1750, Hutton settled in Birmingham where the best part of his stock was the 'refuse' of the library of a Presbyterian minister Ambrose Rudsdell (1707-1750), he soon prospered, saving £20 in his first year, moving into a better shop in the High Street, and opening Birmingham's first circulating library in 1751. In 1756 Hutton set up a paper warehouse in the High Street, the first in Birmingham, which was profitable enough to encourage him to build a paper mill on Handsworth Heath in 1759. The mill was not a commercial success and he abandoned it in 1762. In 1766 he began to speculate in land, an activity which he continued with success into old age, and in 1769 he bought half an acre at Bennett's Hill, Saltley where he built himself a country house. Well known as a dissenter and as one of the group of radical thinkers of which Joseph Priestley was the most prominent member, Hutton suffered severely in the rioting which followed a dinner held in Birmingham on 14 July 1791 to celebrate the second anniversary of the storming of the Bastille. Even though Hutton had declined an invitation to attend the dinner and taken no part in the political and religious disputes of the time, the mob attacked Hutton's house in High Street. He offered to buy them off but they dragged him to the Fountain tavern where he was presented with a bill for 329 gallons of ale. Nonetheless, his house and furniture were destroyed later that evening. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Travels in Brazil.

      London, for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme & Brown, 1816. - 2 maps, 8 hand?colored aquatints, ix, (3), 501, (1) pp., (3 ll. advt.). Large 4° (30 x 22 cm.), original boards (neatly refurbished at head and foot of spine, printed paper label slightly chipped and worn but intact). Some offsetting from plates. Otherwise in fine condition; uncut. Old ownership signature of James Maury on recto of front free endleaf. Circular printed ticket of (Wright) & Cruickshank, 60 Castle Street, Liverpool in upper outer corner of front pastedown endleaf. ---- FIRST EDITION of this classic work on Brazil. Born in Portugal, the son of a Liverpool sugar dealer, Henry Koster originally visited Brazil for health reasons. He arrived in Recife in mid?December of 1809. As his health improved, he began traveling in Parahiba and Maranhão. He settled in Pernambuco at the "Jaguaribe", a sugar plantation, and later acquired land in Itamaraca and a @sitio in Gamboa. During his residence in Brazil he sailed several times to England, where in 1816 he published this celebrated book. Koster died in Recife in 1820.Although Koster had no intention of writing a book about Brazil, he was urged to do so by friends, the most notable of whom was perhaps Robert Southey, whom he met and befriended in Portugal in 1801, and whose library he utilized. @Travels in Brazil was very well received by the public and critics; a second edition was issued the following year, and soon thereafter it was translated into French and German. Today it remains the best description in English of northern Brazil just before Independence, and the original edition is of considerably greater rarity than most English travel literature of the period.The plates that illustrate the work were executed according to Koster's own drawings by a close relative. The maps show the city of Pernambuco and the northeast coast of Brazil. In the Appendix (pp. 475?501), Koster transcribes 2 monographs, rare today, that Arruda Camara published in Rio de Janeiro, 1810; both deal with the plants of Brazil.Koster was keenly observant. In his description of the town of Pernambuco, for example (pp. 5?9), he notes the height and building material of houses in various sections of the town, the condition of the streets, public buildings, bridges, and the source of water. Similar but less detailed information is given about Olinda, Natal and São Luis do Maranhão. On pp. 298?301 he describes the building of his own house, commenting on the types of wood used for different parts.In addition to references to sugar and sugar plantations throughout the text, Chapter XVI (pp. 336?64) is devoted entirely to sugar, and two of the aquatints are related to the subject: One shows a sugar mill, another a planter and his wife on a journey.---- Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 437: "This first edition is the one most sought after."

        Plate 199 - Lilium Candidum (Madonna Lily)

      Paris 1816 - Pierre-Joseph Redouté Hand-colored stipple engraving from Les Liliacées Paris: 1802-1816 31 1/4” x 24 1/4” framed The unequalled botanical artist Pierre-Joseph Redouté occupies a central position in the development of European flower painting. Redouté had, as pupils or patrons, five queens and empresses of France, fromMarie-Antoinette to Empress Josephine and her successor, Marie-Louise. Despite many changes of regime in a turbulent epoch, he worked without interruption, a testament to his greatness as an artist. Les Liliacées was Redouté's largest and most ambitious work and is generally considered his masterpiece, arguably rivaled only by Les Roses. Produced under the patronage of the Empress Josephine, for whom Redouté worked as botanical artist at her estate at Malmaison, these pristine examples represent landmark works in the field of flower illustration. The title Les Liliacées is misleading, as the work was of a much broader scope, including representatives of the lily, amaryllis, iris, orchid, and other families. The plates were executed by means of stipple engraving, a method that the artist himself perfected when he was unsatisfied with the effects garnered by traditional copper-plate engraving. As Redouté shrewdly observed, the delicacy and subtle elegance of his compositions could only be captured using a printing method equally fine. The luminosity of stipple engraving is particularly suited to the reproduction of botanical detail. The medium involved engraving a copper plate with a dense grid of dots that could be modulated to convey delicate gradations of color. Because the ink rested on the paper in miniscule dots, it did not obscure the "light" of the paper beneath the color. After this complicated printing process was complete, the prints were finished by hand in watercolor, so as to conform to the exquisite models Redouté provided. Les Liliacées records the plants of the lily family, and related flowers, that Josephine collected for her gardens at Malmaison. Redouté's small drawings, placed at the bottom of the main illustrations, record the anatomical features of each species so that each flower could be identified with precision and cultivated to perfection. In each illustration, as in his series Les Roses, the flowers are classical "portraits" which lack backgrounds or settings. The regal simplicity of the compositions allows the viewer to focus without distraction on the beauty and delicate complexity of the plants themselves. Redoutés's work represents a uniquely harmonious blend of scientific precision and supremely delicate rendering.

        Etchings Of Remarkable Beggars, Itinerant Traders And Other Persons Of Notoriety In London And Its Environs.

      London: John Thomas Smith, 1815 [i.e. 1816]. - folio. partly hand-coloured etched title & 48 etched plates. later half morocco, top edge gilt, rebacked with most of spine mounted (corners worn, some foxing, generally light but some of the plates more heavily affected). A later but fuller issue of the work, with forty-eight rather than the usual twenty-three plates. Some of the plates were republished in 1817 under the title Vagabondiana; Or, Anecdotes Of Mendicant Wanderers Through The Streets of London., which contained thirty-three. Smith's etchings are among the earliest attempts to depict the poor of London in a realistic way, serving as fore-runners to Busby's Costumes of the Lower Orders of London (1820) and Mayhew's London Labour and London Poor (1861-62). They present "a dramatic survey of street folk, blind beggars, cripples, the indigent poor of all kinds.and hawkers of trifles, observed with objectivity." (Houfe, Dictionary of Book Illustrators, p. 149) Smith had studied sculpting under Nollekens and mezzotinting under John Keyse Sherwin, after which he was appointed Keeper of Prints and Drawings in the British Museum.

        Kyôchûzan (Mountains of the Heart).

      (Japan Sûzan Shobô 1816) - Small quarto. (19)ff. A Japanese book of color woodblock prints by Kameda Bôsai (1754-1826), one of the leading painters of the Nanga or Bunjinga (literati) schools of painting. The seventeen full-page illustrations, five of which extend across the page spread, are landscapes depicting mountainous terrain, comprised of strong, black calligraphic lines with soft colors. Each includes descriptive text printed along the margins and the artist’s stamp in red. The images are simple but poetic, expressing the artist’s love of the natural world, with descriptions that translate as: "The refreshing sound of a mountain waterfall," "The intoxicating effect of river and mountains," "Solitary fisher on a wintry river," and "Jeweled mountains like sapphires and water like emerald," among others. With a preface and two closing notes. Working during the Edo period, Bôsai was recognized for his paintings, calligraphy, and book illustrations. In her book Block Printing and Book Illustration in Japan, Louise Norton Brown describes Kyôchûzan as "The most charming book produced by the Japanese Impressionistic School." The colophon, which is adhered to the inside of the back cover, has different lettering and paper than the rest of the book. It is dated 1809, in contradiction to the dates stated in the preface and postscripts; according to scholars of Bôsai, this was most likely the result of careless pasting by the bookbinder. Stab-bound in gray-green wrappers with a printed yellow label to the front cover. Covers and one spot on the spine show some light rubbing and wear, else a fine copy. Protected in a blue cloth chemise that closes with bone clasps. (Brown, p. 121; Keyes, #47, p. 283, similar to edition 5; Mitchell, The Illustrated Books of the Nanga, Maruyama, Shijo and Other Related Schools of Japan, pp. 383-4). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Oriental Scenery [parts I-V]; Hindoo Excavations in the mountain of Ellora [part VI]

      printed for Thomas and William Daniell at the Free-School Press . and published by William Daniell and Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown, London 1816 - Expertly bound to style in red half morocco over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, spines in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in gilt in the second and third compartments Scarce complete set of the first quarto edition of Daniell's masterpiece: the greatest pictorial record of India and her antiquities ever published. This copy in extraordinary condition. "The Daniells left England in 1785, when William was only about sixteen, and they were back in England in September 1794. From an early stage Thomas seems to have set out to emulate and surpass Hodges ( Select Views in India ) in popularizing his views through the comparatively new medium of aquatint. The uncle and nephew were determined not only to do better than Hodges but to expose the weaknesses of the pioneer's work by choosing the same views as Hodges had done, drawing them more accurately, and aquatinting them more skilfully" (Abbey Scenery II, p.377). The plates here are reduced versions of the justly famous large folio, hand-coloured plates which the Daniells engraved from their own drawings made during their extended expedition to India (except for the plates in the sixth and final part which was issued under the title Hindoo Excavations and were based on the drawings of James Wales). The Daniells's reasons for publishing this beautifully prepared version of their masterpiece is given at the front of the first series: they note that the large folio work is "well known, not only in the British dominions, but on the Continent, where [it is] . to be found in most of the principal libraries. This collection, however . has acquired a magnitude that necessarily limits its possession to the few who can purchase works of such expense. To obviate this objection, and to give to materials, so generally interesting, a more extensive range of circulation, Messrs. Daniell have determined to publish a careful and accurate edition, in quarto, of the same work; on which . they will be enabled to affix a price so moderate as to be of easy purchase . when completed, [the set] will be comprised in three volumes, containing in the whole 150 prints." The success of this first quarto edition can be judged from the fact that it was reprinted at least twice, in various forms, and was still available from Henry Bohn in the late 1840s. This book is notorious for being found in poor condition. The present copy, however, is free of all foxing and is the finest copy we have ever encountered.

        Panorama prise au Sommet du Mont Rigi.

      Zurich, Keller & Füssli, (1816). - 8vo. Fan-folded, hand-coloured aquatint (with 9 folding double leaves, c. 195 x 1980 mm) in contemp. blindstamped blue boards with floral design and mounted border. In slipcase with mounted title. The finest and rarest of Keller's panoramas in contemporary colour, depicting the view from Mount Rigi from Risch on Lake Zug to Kuessnacht on Lake Lucerne. Not to be confused with Keller's much more common like-titled panoramas of merely half size, published from 1820 onwards (cf. Harteveld Cat. 206, no. 123: their copy described as "splendidly coloured copy, then sold for the fourfold price of copies in simple colour"). In 1823 Keller was to publish yet another large-format panorama as part of a book with the same title, again not identical with this present view. - The title label bears the publisher note as quoted above; the view itself is captioned: "Gezeichnet auf dem Rigi-Kulm, 1814, von H. Keller, Vermehrt u. Berichtigt 1816 / gestochen von J. J. Scheurmann 1815". Two flaps (measuring 70 x 160 mm) can be folded out at the bottom, through with the view includes Arth on Lake Zug. Similarly, Mount Rossberg is also inserted as a flap, behind which the viewer may uncover Lake Aegeri and Eccehomo. Mounted on the back pastedown is a coloured engraving: "Le Mont Righi, dessiné près de Zoug" (175 x 107 mm; B. Bullinger del., F. Hegi sc.). - Minute paper defect on the horizon at far left, otherwise in perfect condition. Binding with occasional insignificant staining; altogether very clean. Insignificant bumping to edges of slipcase. Ms. ownership note by the Austrian actor Joseph Koberwein (1774-1857). The son of the important travelling actor Simon Friedrich Koberwein made his debut in 1796 at the Vienna Court Theatre and remained as a member of the ensemble until 1846. His principal roles were Ferdinand, Leicester, and Wallenstein. - Very rare; library and collection catalogues (OCLC, British Library, etc.) list only the later editions. Cf. Lonchamp 1672 (note).

        Hortus Gramineus Woburnensis: Or an Account of the Results of Experiments on the Produce and Nutritive Qualities of Different Grasses and Other Plants Used as the Food of the More Valuable Domestic Animals: Instituted By John Duke of Bedford

      B. M'millan, London 1816 - vi, [3], iv-lxvi, 316pp, [4]. Uncut in original boards, with original paper label. Rebacked, original spine laid on, worn to edges with one or two minor scrapes to covers and small amount of loss to paper covering lower board. Internally some light spotting with occasional offsetting, damp stain to index leaves, but generally fairly bright and clean. With thirty-five samples of seeds on fourteen leaves and one hundred and twenty-three dried grass specimens mounted on blank numbered sheets with printed captions in Latin and English, many leaves highlighted in green, all tissue-guarded. With the very important folding engraved plan of the garden, (often absent), laid in loosely to front and errata slip tipped in, previous owners book plate to front pastedown. Now housed in a cloth drop back box with title label to spine. Sinclair, George (1786-1834), gardener and writer on horticulture, "On instructions from the duke, and under the direction of Sir Humphry Davy, Sinclair conducted an extensive series of experiments on the nutritive qualities of various types of animal fodder. The results were published in 1816 in Hortus Gramineus Woburnensis, an expensive folio volume containing dried specimens of the grasses. These were replaced by plates in cheaper editions published in 1825, 1826, and 1829, and in a German translation of 1826. The nutritional value of the grasses described in Hortus was assessed through comparison of their water-soluble constituents, the theory being that these formed the bulk of the feeding material. As a comparative guide the technique did have some value" (ODNB). A paper in 'Science' (25/01/2002) by Andy Hector and Rowan Hooper have called this book, which influenced Charles Darwin, "arguably the first ecological experiment". Darwin in his 'Origin of the Species' refers to an experiment investigating the biology of grassland plants that showed how a greater diversity of grasses planted in experimental plots was responsible for greater production of plant matter, but Darwin didn't leave any clues as to where or when this experiment was done. Hector and Hooper have shown that it is Sinclair's 'Hortus Gramineus Woburnensis' which details this experimental garden. Uncommon, with five locations on COPAC and only one (Natural History Museum) mentioning the plan. Nissen BBI 1850 (calling for one hundred and twenty-two samples); Lowndes 2404 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
