        NAVIGAZIONI DI COOK PEL GRANDE OCEANO E INTORNO AL GLOBO PER SERVIRE D'INTRODUZIONE ALLA RACCOLTA DE' VIAGGI PIU INTERESSANTI ESEGUITI DOPO QUEL CELEBRE NAVIGATORE NELLE VARIE PARTI DEL MONDO.

      Milan, Milan, Sonzogno e Comp., 1816. 7 volumes, complete set, FIRST EDITION, Italian text, 1816-17. 12mo, approximately 170 x 100 mm, 6½ x 4 inches, portrait of Cook engraved by Giuseppe dall'Acqua as frontispiece to Volume I, folding black and white map of the world at rear of Volume I. 29 very good plates by dall'Acqua, 27 nicely HAND COLOURED by Lazzaretti, pages xl, 212, (1); 334, (1); 286, (1); 318, (1); 393, (1); 305, (1); 286, each volume has a half-title and an unnumbered plate list at the end, except in Volume VII where the plate list precedes the index, bound in half calf over speckled light brown boards, all nicely rebacked with raised bands and 2 gilt decorated and lettered contrasting morocco labels (originally published in printed wrappers), Volume V which is a copy from another set, recornered and with replacement boards which are a very good match with the others. Some corners and some board edges slightly worn, some light damp staining and other small light stains some are unsightly, plus occasional very light soiling to most volumes, mainly to margins, except Volume V which is clean and bright, Volume I: light damp staining to upper inner corners of title page and frontispiece with a couple of dark spots, lighter staining to upper margin persists throughout, small closed tear at inner edge of map with neat repair on reverse, small split to edge of 1 fold affecting margin only, Volume II: large light brown damp stain to title page, first 11 leaves and plate of Principessa di Taiti (hardly noticeable), another plate has small light damp stain to upper corner affecting sky only, Volume III: a few dark spots to lower outer corner from half-title to page 81 and then intermittently to the end, Volume V: small closed tear to middle of 1 text page, no loss, Volume VI: light brown damp stain to upper third of last 8 leaves, strongest on plate list and rear endpaper but not obscuring text. Bindings tight and firm. A good set of an Italian account of the voyages of Cook and of some of his predecessors with interesting well executed plates. The first 2 volumes describe the voyages of those navigators who preceded Cook: Byron, Carteret, Wallis, Bougainville and Surville. Volumes III and IV recount Cook's first voyage, Volume V his second voyage and Volumes VI and VII his third voyage including the continuation by Captain King after Cook's death on Hawaii. This is a new Italian translation of the three voyages based on various sources alluded to but not named in the publisher's preface. This edition is especially notable for the coloured plates which show natives and their customs and rituals, their ships, a kangaroo, walrus hunting, the death of Captain Cook, and various scenes. 2 uncoloured plates show tools and weapons. The Death of Cook is the typical scene after Webber showing Cook ordering his Marines to cease fire. Beddie, Bibliography of Captain Cook, 86; Forbes, Hawaiian National Bibliography, 449. Not in Hill or the Parsons Collection. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.

        THE HISTORY OF GEORGIA, CONTAINING BRIEF SKETCHES OF THE MOST REMARKABLE EVENTS UP TO THE PRESENT DAY.

      Savannah: Printed and published by Seymour and Williams, 1811-1816. - Two volumes. viii,376; vii,[1],424pp. Original printed boards. Some rubbing and loss, minor staining, spines cracked, early ownership signature partially eradicated on titlepage of second volume, some foxing in second volume. Overall, a remarkable survivor in good condition, completely unsophisticated and untrimmed. In a brown cloth folding box, gilt morocco label. The first history of the state of Georgia and a standard work of southern history as well as an interesting imprint. McCall's history covers events from 1733 to 1783, with the first volume going through 1773 and the second being wholly devoted to the Revolutionary period through 1784. The second volume was written largely from personal experience, since McCall was a Revolutionary officer. Willingham says the book is written "intelligently and well" and is "a landmark in the development of Georgia literature." Streeter calls it "the chief source on the border wars with the Creeks and Cherokees. This is one of the rarest of state histories." The second volume includes biographical sketches of some of the Native American chiefs and of the Loyalist refugees who led them. These sketches "were derived in many instances directly from the lips of some of the survivors of these bloody scenes, from manuscripts, or from printed documents, no longer accessible to the student of history" - Field. The original printed boards give the title and distributors on the front, while the rear board of the first volume advertises books in press from Seymour and Williams, and the rear board of the second volume advertises Williams' stationery and book store. It is interesting to note that, while the first volume is dated 1811 on the titlepage and in all bibliographies, it is dated 1812 on the board, and the ads on the rear board are dated January 1812. Exceedingly rare in the original boards, and certainly the best copy available in the present market. HOWES M33. DE RENNE, p.344. CHURCH 1305. SABIN 42973. WILLINGHAM 21. STREETER SALE 1161.

        Voyage de Découvertes aux Terres Australes, éxecuté par ordre de Sa Majesté l'Empereur et Roi, sur les corvettes le Géographe, le Naturaliste, et la goelette le Casuarina, pendant les années 1800, 1801, 1802, 1803 et 1804; the COMPLETE SET, described as Ferguson 449, 536 & 603

      L'Imprimerie Impériale, Paris 1816 - The rare complete official narrative and hydrography of the Baudin-Freycinet Expedition, most volumes in the original papered boards and all uncut. To quote Rodney Davidson, it is "among the finest items of Australiana ever published. They recount an outstanding voyage of discovery. In complete form the journals are exceedingly rare".The expedition was sent out by the French government in 1800 with orders to complete the cartographic survey of the Australian coast. Commanded by Nicolas Baudin, the expedition left France in 1800 and sailed via Mauritius to the Western Australian coast in the region of Cape Leeuwin, arriving in May 1801. Peron sailed as naturalist on the expedition and Freycinet as cartographer. The vessels, Geographe and Naturaliste, sailed north from Cape Leeuwin, charting the mouth of the Swan River, site of present day Perth. After three months in Timor, the two ships set out for Tasmania, continuing to make surveys and a close study of Tasmanian aborigines and their material culture. They continued on to New South Wales, creating a fine panorama of the town of Sydney, as well as views and a town plan. They then undertook a complete survey of the southern coast and an examination of the northern coast before returning to Mauritius where, near the end of 1803, Baudin died. The voyage brought back to France the most important collection of natural history specimens in the history of the French Museum, as well as a wealth of geographical and other information. Many of these specimens were maintained at Malmaison, the chateau of Josephine & Napoleon on the outskirts of Paris. The narrative of the expedition was begun by Peron, and completed by Freycinet after Peron's death. A tacit agreement between Peron and Freycinet, both of whom disliked Baudin, kept the commander's name mostly absent from the present official account of the expedition. Mathew Flinders completed his survey of the Australian coast on behalf of the English before Baudin, but his imprisonment by the French in Mauritius for seven years resulted in the French exploration account being published first. English concerns for French intentions were justified, but there was an amicable famous meeting of the two expeditions at a bay in South Australia subsequently named Encounter Bay. Consequently, the Baudin-Freycinet narrative includes the first complete and fully detailed map of the coastline of the Australian continent. It is a cartographic milestone, artfully done, as exemplified by the French artistry of the time. The southern coast is almost entirely named "Terre Napolean," indicating France's colonial ambitions. A highlight of the numerous plates and maps includes an engraved portrait of Peron, done within days of his death; coastlines of Tasmania, South Australia, Western Australia and Queensland; exquisite natural history plates illustrating the the spectacularly different Australian fauna - kangaroo, wombat, platypus, Tasmanian tiger & emu, many hand-colored; 11 views including two folding, panoramic views of Sydney and Timor; 19 ethnographic portraits, 17 of which are of Tasmanian & New South Wales aborigines with examples of their material culture; charts, coastal profiles, views and plans of Sydney & of islands and harbors around Australia and Timor including Tasmania, Western Australia (including Perth, Albany & Shark Bay); and South Australia.The Baudin-Freycinet narrative is not always found complete, as the navigational text and atlas were issued on different dates and sold separately from the narrative "Historique." The specialized nature of the navigational section, including the text which constitutes a pilot to the Australian coast, meant that it was not often added to copies of the narrative section. However, as first full atlas of the Australian coastline, its cartographical contribution is of extraordinary value.

        The History of the Colleges of Winchester, Eton, and Westminster.

      London: R. Ackermann,, 1816. With the Charter-House, the Schools of St. Paul's, Merchant Taylors, Harrow, and Rugby, and the Free-School of Christ's Hospital. Large quarto (340 x 275 mm). Mid-20th-century straight-grain red morocco by Bayntun, flat bands gilt to spine, title gilt to second compartment, two-line frames and fan cornerpieces gilt to remaining compartments, concentric fillets gilt to sides enclosing a broad hop and vine-leaf roll and an inner dotted roll gilt, large cornerpieces built up from fan and floral tools, gilt edges, broad foliate roll gilt to turn-ins, marbled endpapers, bound brown silk page-markers. Housed in a custom red cloth slipcase. 44 aquatints after Gendall, Mackenzie, Pugin, and Westall, and 4 line-engravings of costume after Uwin, all hand-coloured. Joints very lightly rubbed in sections, a few faint, almost imperceptible scores to front board, small spot to margin of frontispiece, tissue-guard creased, mild foxing to title page, more heavily to binder's blanks, occasional, very light offsetting, small spray of pale mottling to plate 24, tiny fore-edge nick to plate 25, otherwise a few trivial spots or marks. An excellent copy with generous margins. First edition, second issue as usual, plate 26, "Charter House from the Playground", with cricketers instead of washerwomen, and plates 5 and 23, "Winchester College, from the Meadow" and "Westminster School Room", both in the preferred first state. With a copy of the very rare first issue, second state of the Charter House plate laid in, retaining the washerwomen, the title erased. (Tooley considered the first issue, first state, with the washerwomen and the original title, "Charter House School …", to be "extraordinarily rare"; he had only ever seen one copy.) The History of the Colleges, printed in a run of 1,000 copies, which were then issued in twelve monthly parts from 1 January 1816, was the culmination of the series of fine topographical books which established Ackermann's reputation, and which are "widely held to be among the most beautiful illustrated books of the first half of the nineteenth century" (ODNB); with Ackermann's Oxford and Cambridge in particular it forms a "magnificent trilogy" (Hardie). Tooley noted that "Ackermann's 'Schools' is more popular than his 'Oxford' and 'Cambridge' and occurs less frequently for sale … The two states of the first issue, and the second issue are all desirable". The text is by William Combe, author of Dr Syntax, and W. H. Pyne. The plates, which are mainly after Westall, Pugin and Mackenzie, demonstrate the full range of these artists' capabilities, from detailed architectural studies to Arcadian landscapes and Regency interiors, and in this splendidly bound copy are preserved in exceptionally fresh condition, the plates watermarked 1812, the text-leaves 1816.

        Europe after the Congress of Vienna

      Artist: Neele ; issued in: London; date: 1816 - - technic: Steel engraving; colorit: original colored; condition: Printed on 4 sheets joined together, folds partly restored; size (in cm): 102 x 124; description: Decorative and impressive map of total Europe after the Congress of Vienna, 1814. The Congress of Vienna was a meeting of ambassadors of European states chaired by Austrian statesman Klemens von Metternich, and held in Vienna from November 1814 to June 1815, though the delegates had arrived and were already negotiating by late September 1814. The objective of the Congress was to provide a long-term peace plan for Europe by settling critical issues arising from the French Revolutionary Wars and the Napoleonic Wars. The goal was not simply to restore old boundaries but to resize the main powers so they could balance each other off and remain at peace. The leaders were conservatives with little use for republicanism or revolution, both of which threatened to upset the status quo in Europe. France lost all its recent conquests, while Prussia, Austria and Russia made major territorial gains. Prussia added smaller German states in the west, Swedish Pomerania and 60% of the Kingdom of Saxony; Austria gained Venice and much of northern Italy. Russia gained parts of Poland. The new Kingdom of the Netherlands had been created just months before, and included formerly Austrian territory that in 1830 became Belgium.

Aber auch diese Publikation mußte nach nur 3 Jahren ihr Erscheinen einstellen.The first journal devoted to ophthalmology was founded in 1802 by Himly and Schmid. It was discontinued in 1805 after the appearance of 3 volumes. 11 years later Himly started the present continuation, but he published only the two present volumes, which are of great importance in the history of ophthalmology. Himly professor of ophthalmology in Göttingen, employed hyoscyamus to dilate the pupil as a preliminary to cataract extraction, and it is to him the honors should be given as the first to make an extensive use of mydriatics in ophthalmological surgery.Hirschberg 482 Ovi I, 602 Chance 133, 164 Arrington 104 Gorin, 68ff.

        Mansfield Park.

      London: Printed for J. Murray,, 1816. A novel. In three volumes. By the author of "Pride and Prejudice." Second edition. 3 volumes, duodecimo (173 x 107 mm). Rebound to style in brown half calf, red morocco labels to spines, ruled and decorated in gilt in compartments, marbled paper sides, edges speckled brown. Top edges dust toned, very light foxing to text throughout; an excellent, bright set. Second edition of Austen's third novel. The first edition was published by Egerton in May 1814, in a run of 1,250 copies. In November 1814 Austen wrote to a friend reporting that all copies of the first edition had been sold, and that the question of a second edition had therefore been raised. However Austen was believed to have been dissatisfied with Egerton as a publisher, both in terms of the print quality of the first edition and in his abilities as a salesman (Gilson, p. 59). She therefore decided to change publisher for the second edition, sending a corrected copy of the work to John Murray in December 1815. The second edition contains a number of changes to the text, "most noticeably in the technical details - probably on advice from one of the sailor brothers" (ibid.).

        The Principles of Population and Production, as they are affected by the Progress of Society; with a view to Moral and Political Consequences.

      Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy, London., 1816. First edition. Octavo. pp xl, 493, [i] adverts. Period quarter leather with marbled boards, recently rebacked and with endpapers renewed.The author's major work, a direct challenge to Malthusian warnings of the dangers of population growth. Indeed, Weyland argues that economic progress depends on the stimulus provided by such growth to a level ''just beyond the plentiful supply of the people's want''. Malthus was stung to an intemperate rebuttal in an appendix to the fifth edition of his Essay on the Principle of Population: "It is quite inconceivable how a man of sense could bewilder himself in such a maze of futile calculations, and come to conclusions so diametrically opposite to experience."Ownership signature on second blank. Some foxing to prelims. Faint traces of damp to inner margins of first gathering. Very good. The title-page raises some questions: it shares some of the foxing of the surrounding pages, but is printed on slightly thinner paper (an early facsimile insert?, a later facsimile insert on period paper?). Scarce: there was only one nineteenth century edition.

        A collection of the most important cases respecting patents of invention and the rights of patentees, which have been determined in the courts of law since the statute for restraining monopolies. To which are added, some practical observations resulting from the decisions on the several cases.

      London: W. Reed 1816 - 8vo., ix + (3) + 452pp., including the half-title, contemporary law calf, the sides very rubbed, neatly rebacked and labelled. A good copy preserved in a custom-made cloth slip case and with the near contemporary ownership signature of John Masterman of 65 Old Broad St. [London]> at head of title. First edition.: An authoritative commentary on patent law by a competent and long-serving employee of the Rolls Chapel Office. He observes that 'he has inserted every case he has been able to procure, which contained any new points respecting patents, or which had acquired notoriety by the magnitude and importance of the invention' [p. viii]. Of the 46 cases selected by the author it is unsurprising that Richard Arkwright, Matthew Boulton and James Watt all figure. In any event, all the cases cited had been determined between 1785 and 1816. He concludes with the following remarks: 'The foregoing cases and the few imperfect observations here offered to the public will, it is hoped, have the effect of drawing the attention of patentees more particularly to the law of the subject, and enabling them . to make their specifications more clear and explicit than in former times, whereby patents may become more certain and ingenious persons be induced to promote useful improvements in the arts and manufactures of the country .'.

        Fragments on the theory and practice of landscape gardening, including some remarks on Grecian and Gothic architecture, collected from various manuscripts, in the possession of the different noblemen and gentlemen, for use they were originally written; the whole tending to establish fixed principles in the respective arts.

      London J. Taylor 1816 - First edition. Large 4to., xii, 238 pp., 42 aquatint plates and plans including 21 hand-coloured (3 folding) and 3 tinted, one woodcut, numerous vignettes throughout, 13 plates and 2 vignettes with overlays, with half-title, bound in contemporary drab boards, printed label on spine, some neat restoration to the corners, some slight wear to the boards; all housed in a modern slipcase. The last of Repton's celebrated works. Written after the Prince of Wales had rejected Repton's plans for the Royal Pavilion, Fragments was dedicated to the Prince Regent but the book makes no mention of any commission for the prince, rather it serves as a reproach to his manners and morals. Fragments focuses on a number of aristocratic landscapes: Cobham, Woburn, Endsleigh, Ashridge, Longleat, and on small commissions such as Ealing Park and White Lodge, which took in views of royal parks. They commemorate a historically minded, public spirited nobility. Other Fragments on commissions for a range of clients, from Norfolk squires to Essex merchants, establish a polite consensus around highly detailed plans for gardens. The final Fragment on Hare Street incorprates the outlook of "venerable noblemen" such as the Duke of Portland and Viscount Torrington in the view from Repton's own garden: "To demonstrate the little consequence of quantity or value, when speaking of beauty of scenery, many places have been mentioned, which may perhaps appear too inconsiderable in a work that treats of dukedoms and royal domains: but I wish to evince, that in many cases great effect may be produced by a very contracted quantity of land nothing more is necessary than a terrace, or a few shrubs and flowers to form a frame to the picture."

        Temeridad de Martincho en la plaza de Zaragoza

      1816. Acquatinta, acquaforte e puntasecca, incisione mm 202x314, foglio mm 245x355. Stato unico. Rara prima edizione della tavola 18 tratta dal capolavoro grafico di Goya "Tauromaquia", stampata in un numero assai limitato di esemplari, come afferma Harris Impressione molto bella, nitida e contrastata su carta vergata senza filigrana (Harris: in some sets no watermark appears). Provenienza: Mostra "Goya. Cento incisioni in prima edizione", Libreria antiquaria Perini, 1982.La "Tauromaquia" comprende una serie di 33 incisioni, eseguite probabilmente nel 1815 e pubblicate da Goya in una piccola edizione, che, nonostante il soggetto caro agli spagnoli, sembra non aver avuto molto successo. Infatti un libraio tedesco la comprò quasi al completo, per rivenderla più tardi a Parigi. La seconda edizione fu pubblicata nel 1855. Questa opera fa storia a sé nell'ambito della produzione incisoria di Goya; non attinge al sarcasmo o alla tragedia come in "Los Caprichos" e "Los desastros de la guerra" ma è concepita direttamente sul reale, con una veemenza incisoria del tutto interiore. La seria nacque come idea di una storia della corrida. I primi fogli infatti rappresentanovari modo di toreare, fogli di grande interesse e qualità, ma ancora intrisi di un fare un po' pittoresco e illustrativo. A partire dal quattordicesimo foglio il trattao si fa più avvolgente e turbinoso, la scena è piena di tensione e drammaticità, sparisce ogni intento didascalico. Le acqueforti mostrano le bravure di celebri toreri e l'artista, senza abbandonare il rigore di stile e tradire la forza del suo disegno, si abbandona a un maggior pathos descrittivo. L'acquatinta si sovrappone all'acquaforte e ad essa i tratti di bulino e puntasecca, in modo da ottenere morbidi passaggi di tinte dal seppia al grigio chiaro, striscaite di luce , graffi di nero nei contorni. Considerato il più importante artista spagnolo a cavallo tra il XVIII e il XIX secolo, Goya fu per quasi sessant'anni al servizio della casa regnante spagnola come pittore, disegnatore e stampatore. La vastissima opera dell'artista risente dei diversi stili e delle vicende storiche che si avvicendarono durante la sua attività: con tratti che vanno dal tardo Rococò al Romanticismo e alle prime influenze impressionistiche, Goya ritrae la Spagna Borbonica di Carlo III, il regno di Carlo IV, l'avvento delle idee illuministe, l'occupazione francese, la guerra peninsulare, il dispotismo di Ferdinando VII con la restaurazione dell'Inquisizione, la breve parentesi del Governo Costituzionale... Goya ebbe fama internazionale già in vita, conosciuto all'estero come "Apelle spagnolo", viene considerato dalla critica il primo vero artista moderno. Bibliografia: Harris 221. Etching, burnished acquatint and drypoint. Engraving 202x314, sheet Mm 245x355 Unique state. First edition. Plate 18 from "Tauromaquia". Very good impressionand condition.The most closely etched work on the bull's neck was over-bitten. The etched lines in the left foreground almost failed to bite, and were reinforced with drypoint. In the same area there is false biting.

        VOYAGE ROUND THE world FROM 1806 TO 1812; IN WHICH JAPAN, KAMSCHATKA, THE ALEUTIAN ISLANDS, AND THE SANDWICH ISLANDS WERE VISITED. . WITH AN ACCOUNT OF THE PRESENT STATE OF THE SANDWICH ISLANDS, AND A VOCABULARY OF THEIR LANGUAGE.

      Edinburgh ARCHIBALD CONSTABLE AND COMPANY 1816 - FIRST EDITION. 8vo., 276pp., half-title, engraved folding map, partially hand-coloured; offsetting of map, some spotting. Contemporary speckled calf, red lettering piece, marbled endpapers, a fine copy. First edition of campbell's calamitous voyages around the world containing an early and valuable account of Hawaii in a fine contemporary binding. "Campbell's account of his stay in Hawaii (where he was sent to recover from frostbite) is of the greatest importance, being the first narrative from the viewpoint of a resident rather than as a visitor. His keen first-hand observations on the social structure and agricultural practices of Hawaiians are of great importance" (Forbes). Campbell was a young, poor Scottish seaman, who by a series of strange and disastrous events voyaged around the world. Bound as an apprentice to the master of a ship aged 13, a string of coincidences conspired to take him to China, Japan, and the Russian coast by the time he was only 20. During his voyage from the Kamchatka Peninsula to American his vessel was shipwrecked off the coast of Alaska, leaving only five survivors, and causing him to lose both his feet to frostbite. Building a new vessel from the wreckage they made their way to Kodiak Island near Alaska during which they were once again shipwrecked. Campbell went on to visit the Sandwich Islands (Hawaii) and South America before finally being able to return to his native Scotland in 1812. Included is a detailed account of the Sandwich Islands and a phrasebook of their language. Hill 244; Forbes 448. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Edinburgh Printed by James Ballantyne and Co. for Archibald Constable and Co 1816 - Sixth edition (within two years of the first), 3 volumes, 12mo., x, 358, [1]; [4], 370; [4], 371pp., with half-titles and Preface to third edition, slight browning to extreme page edges, staining to blank preliminary endpapers to volume 1, else very good, contemporary half calf over marbled boards, spines gilt and blind-tooled, marbled edges, mildly rubbed and corners bumped, otherwise very good. An historical novel set during the Jacobite uprising of 1745, it was published anonymously in 1814 as Scott's first venture into prose fiction. It is often regarded as the first historical novel in the western tradition and became so popular that Scott's later novels were advertised as being "by the author of Waverley". His series of works on similar themes written during the same period have become collectively known as the "Waverley Novels". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Oedipus in Athens, Fingal; Dmitry Donskoy].

      Ivan Glazunov St. Petersburg 1816 - Folio (25.5 x 20 cm). Engraved portrait frontispiece by Nikolai Utkin after A. Notbek, 73pp., including half-title and title, [2]pp.; 50pp.; 82pp. Contemporary half-leather over green boards; rebacked. A sammelband of the three most famous tragedies by "the last major dramatist in the classicist tradition" (Terras). Because of an early mental illness, Vladislav Ozerov (1769-1816) wrote only five tragedies in his lifetime, but met great success. What the public liked was the atmosphere of sensibility and romanticism that the author infused into the classical forms; exactly what was later criticised by conservative critics such as Shishkov, or even Pushkin and Griboedov. Ozerov's first success was Oedipus in Athens (1804), a wry comment on Alexander I's rumoured implication in the murder of his father Paul. The public was delighted with his next tragedy, Fingal (1805), staged with effective sets representing sombre Scottish scenery. However this is Dmitry Donskoy (1807) which became Ozerov's most popular creation, thanks to its strong patriotic message: it was indeed staged within days after the Battle of Eylau, which took place in East Prussia between Napoleon's Grande Armée and an army of the Russian Empire. All works here are in second edition published the year Ozerov passed away. They are rarely found as such, being often gathered within the Works, published later two parts (1816-19), which additionally included Poliksena.
