        ALS on Jardin du Roi letterhead regarding the appointment of a naturalist to the Uranie

      Paris: 18 December, 1816. Single sheet of laid paper with printed letterhead, folded to letter size 25 x 20 cm., written in a neat secretarial hand and signed by Vauquelin on behalf of Jussieu and Desfontaines; old folds, excellent. A letter to Louis de Freycinet appointing a natural historian to the Uranie, signed by Vauquelin and stating the support of the Muséum de histoire naturelle for the expedition. Vauquelin was a professor at the Muséum de histoire naturelle in Paris, and was closely involved in the planning of the Freycinet voyage. The museum ultimately became the first repository of the bulk of the surviving scientific material and reports gathered by the naturalists and scientists. Written to Louis de Freycinet in Toulon, where he was making the final arrangements for the voyage, the letter announces that the Museum would like to confirm the appointment of a person to be responsible for the collection of natural history specimens. They have, the letter continues, tremendous interest in the success of the voyage, and so encourage Freycinet to appoint someone known for the sweetness (douceurs) of their character and for their talents, so as to make sure that the appointee is not in any way an inconvenience on board. Although this is in large part merely a formal politeness, the professors would all have remembered the awkwardness of the relations between scientists and officers on board the Baudin voyage, so this letter should also be seen in that light. Indeed, it is perhaps surprising that no scientist is actually named in this letter. It is certain that this is a reflection of Freycinet's decision to be personally responsible for all appointments: after all, as John Dunmore noted, Freycinet - like Captain Cook before him - had 'learned from his experiences with Baudin that a group of scientists is likely to be a source of trouble, and he preferred to have the scientific work carried out by naval officers, whom he could easily control' (French Explorers in the Pacific, p. 65). In the event, the natural history collections of the voyage were overseen by Jean René Constant Quoy and Paul Gaimard, who excelled in the role.

Dulau & Co. and Leonardo Nardini, and sold by Rudolph Ackermann there and J.G. Beygang in Leipzig, 1800. Oblong Imperial 4to (28×38 cm). With 24 numbered aquatint plates, subtly coloured by hand. Contemporary half calf, gold-tooled spine.

      Berlin Kat. 3430; ESTC T165019 (4 copies); cf. Abbey, Life in England, 63; BAL 2803; not in Springer. First edition of a beautiful series of aquatints with plans, elevations and cross-sections of garden architecture, published simultaneously in both an English and the present French edition. Most copies of the English edition are later reissues with the plates reprinted from the original copperplates ca. 1816 or ca. 1822, while at least the present copy of the French edition has the plates in the original printing, giving the best possible images. The beautiful designs, by William Robertson, show benches, gates, pavilions, bridges, boat houses, temples, mausoleums, aviaries, arbours, bath houses, etc., all intended for gardens and parks and sometimes shown in a setting with trees, ponds, etc. They still reflect the neo-classical styles of the time and the influence of the 18th-century archaeological excavations at Herculaneum and Pompeii, but they already presage what was to become known in England as the Regency style. The two sphinxes on the bridge in plate 23 are a very early example of Egyptian revival.Fine copy with only an occasional minor spot or small stain and nearly untrimmed, with many deckles intact. Binding slightly rubbed and spine and corners worn.

Bookplate. </p><p>First Edition of &#147;The first modern physiology textbook&#148; (Garrison-Morton). Rejecting the excessive speculation and philosophizing that characterized the late eighteenth-century approach to physiology, Magendie devoted his career to the discovery and collection of physiological facts, and exerted strong influence in orienting the discipline toward experimental investigation. His &#147;new physiology,&#148; which he taught in a series of private courses, led him to write the Précis, a new type of physiological textbook in which doctrine and deductions founded upon anatomy were replaced with simple and precise descriptions of experimental facts. Volume II contains Magendie&#146;s description of the importance of protein (nitrogenous substances) in the food supply of mammals; in his experiments on dogs given non-nitrogenous foods, Magendie induced the first experimental cases of an avitaminosis (specifically, lack of vitamin A).

[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.

        Manuel du Tourneur, 3 vols

      Paris: Hamelin - Bergeron, 1816 Second Enlarged Edition. A fine copy. 4to.,. There are 96 plates (with 72 color specimen illus. on 8 plates.) A superbly illus. manual of the art and craft of creating ornate mechanical shapes for decoration, industry, and practical application. The wood specimen plates, hand colored to simulate the grains and surface character of various wood used in furniture and decoration, are superb. The text extends the range of Plumier's treatise (1701) through the modern era encompassing the evolution of style and technology through the 18th century to the threshold of the industrial revolution. There is very little that is omitted from Bergeron's text. In addition to wood he examines metal working, metal alloys, enamels, decorative use of exotic materials, e.g., ivory, design problems, and offers instructions in the use of tools. The illustrations are a treasury of design elements for all kinds of usefull objects ranging from clocks to musical instruments and furniture. The book is a superb compendium of technical and craft information. An excellent decorative arts reference. The second edition, offered here, is considered the best; Brunet goes out of his way to mention that the first edition of 1792 is definitely ' inferior ' to the second; an unusual comment from this normally reticent commentator and bibliographer. The copy offered here is in exceptional condition.

        Der Zahnarzt für das schöne Geschlecht.

      Mainz, Kupferberg, 1816.. Kl.-Oktav. Mit gestochenem Frontispiz. XIV S., 2 Bl., 176 S., 2 Bl. Fragmente einer Broschur der Zeit.. Erste Ausgabe einer außerordentlich seltenen Schrift über Zahnheilkunde aus dem beginnenden Biedermeier. - Hirsch II, 673. - Jean Francois Gallette (1774 - 1838) wurde nach Ausübung verschiedener Funktionen 1813 Stadtzahnarzt im damals noch französischen Mainz und avancierte zum Hofzahnarzt verschiedener europäischer Fürstlichkeiten. Das vorliegende Werk hat einen ernsten Hintergrund, den Gallette in seinem Vorwort selber nennt: die Nachlässigkeit in der Zahnpflege, die nach Hilfe oft erst suchen ließ, wenn es bereits zu spät war. Der Leitfaden setzt daher schon beim Säugling an und begleitet "dies zarte Geschöpf" durch alle Phasen seines Lebens: als Kind, als Mädchen, Jungfrau, Gattin und Mutter. Die Unterscheidung der Zahnpflege "für den Mund junger Frauenzimmer bis zu ihrer Verheirathung" und der "Sorgfalt für denselben während der Ehe" mutet heute etwas sonderbar an. Im Widmungsgedicht "An die Frauen" weiß Gallette die Notwendigkeit seiner Kunst sehr wohl anzupreisen: "...Der Ekel nur kann schnell die Liebe tödten/ Doch wenn ein Lächeln Perlenzähne zeigt/ Dann mag die Lippe schweigen oder reden/ Sie überredet dann auch, wenn sie schweigt". - Vorderdeckel fehlt, Rücken und Rückdeckel (mit einem Ornament verziert) sind vorhanden. Geknickt; Frontispiz mit Wasserfleck; S. 133 und S. 143 mit kleinerem Ausriß am unteren Rand (kein Textverlust); teils unbeschnitten; stellenweise finger- und stockfleckig.

        Christabel: Kubla Khan, a vision; The pains of sleep

      London: John Murray, 1816. Tall octavo; text clean and bright, edges trimmed slightly; fine copy in full tan calf, gilt, by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. In Xanadu. A beautiful copy of this important book: first edition, with the half-title but without the advertisement leaves. &#39;Coleridge alone among English writers is in the front rank at once as poet, as critic and as philosopher&#39; (DNB). His reputation rests partly on his efforts to represent the supernatural in verse; the centrepiece of this slim volume is certainly Kubla Khan, which famously is reputed to have come to the poet in an opium dream. Drenched in erotic imagery, it is a hymn to creativity and the Orient. This is one of his most important poems and it neatly illustrates the guiding principles of his poetry: that it be &#39;simple, sensuous, passionate&#39;. Christabel and The Pains of Sleep round out the volume.

        On the Fire-damp of Coal mines, and on Methods of Lighting the Mines to as to Prevent Its Explosion WITH An Account of an Invention for Giving Light in Explosive Mixtures of Fire-damp in Coal mines, By Consuming the Fire-Damp

      London: W. Bulmer and Co, 1816. First Edition. Cloth. Very Good. First Edition. vi,[2],366,[8-index] pages. 4to. Ex-institutional library copy bound in red buckram with bookplates on front paste down, white lettering on spine panel and embossed stamp on title page. Binding cracked at pages 2/3 otherwise sound. Light browning to the base of the plate for this article, and stain to outer corner. Entire volume is generally bright, clean with wide margins. Offered in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London for the Year MDCCCXVI, part I, pages 1-22 (the article includes one fold-out plate) and pages 23-24. The entire volume 106. Cloth. Contains both the first description of Sir Humphrey Davy&#39;s fire-safety lamp for mining as well as an account of the invention addressing the issue. The new lamp allowed mining without fear of explosions from exposed flames, and was a major safety enhancement that allowed the industry to expand. "A disastrous mine explosion in England in 1813 led to the formation of a society to study the nature of these accidents and appeal to scientists to propose remedial measures. Their first report was issued in 1815 and prompted Davy, Stephenson and others to devise their safety lamps. The Davy lamps consisted of enclosing the lamp in metal gauze, and thereby lowering the ignition point of methane, the chief constituent of "fire-damp", the explosive gas in coal mines." (Dibner). "Science historian L. Pierce Williams has said that Davy&#39;s invention of the safety lamp for miners was a result of one of the most beautiful series of experiments in history..." "&#39;It was one of the earliest and most dramatic illustrations...of the aid that science could offer to the rapidly developing industries of England.&#39;" (Hoover #255) Other articles in the volume by Davy, Brewster, Herschel, Babbage and other luminaries of the time, including another Davy article discussing: "Farther [ sic ] experiments on the combustion of explosive mixtures confined by wire-gauze, with some observations on flame". Various other plates illustrating other articles in the volume. Dibner&#39;s Herald&#39;s of Science 181. Norman 611. Bibliotheca Herbert Clark Hoover #255.

Forty hand-colored etched plates designed and etched by Rowlandson, several trimmed within platemark with slight loss to to plate number or imprint.

With the armorial bookplates of Edward Henry Hill and Hon. John Wayland Leslie. Upper joint expertly and almost invisibly repaired. Chemised and housed in a 20th century quarter red morocco slipcase. Apart from the slight trimming to several plates this is a fine and fresh copy of an extremely rare color plate book.Not listed by Hardie, and not to be confused with The World in Miniature that Ackermann issued in 42 volumes 1821-1827. Conforms to description of 1816 edition in eight monthly parts in the Grolier Club Catalogue of books illustrated by Thomas Rowlandson, 1916, no. 35. Copies were subsequently bound up from the original parts and issued with a letterpress title dated 1817. Hand-colored copies of both issues are not easily found.Only three copies of this volume have come to auction within the last thirty-five years, all rebound, and one of the three with imprint and plate numbers trimmed as here. Less than ten copies located by OCLC/KVK in institutions worldwide. Very scarce.The plates illustrate taverns, racing, fishing, country life, boating, etc. and contain up to three scenes each.Of Rowlandson, "We are told of his aimless wandering about the country, of his indolence and dissipation, of his gambling and high living, and of the reprobation with which his habits of life were regarded by the good people of his day, but undoubtedly it is to these things that we are indebted for the marvelous record which he left of the England he knew, perhaps the most important contribution to our knowledge of the manners of the Englishman during the extraordinary years from 1780 to 1825" (Grolier Club).Grolier Club, Rowlandson, 35.
