        Neues System der Mineralogie. Aus dem Schwedischen übersetzt von Dr. Chr. Gmelin und Prof. W. Pfaff.

      1816. Nürnberg, Johann Leonard Schrag, 1816. 8vo (204 x 120 mm). pp. (2), 148, (2), (iv). Contemporary blue boards, label on spine. First published in Swedish in 1814. First German edition, of this famous mineralogical classic, a separate printing from 'Journal für Chemie und Physik', volume XV. 'In 1812 he received a gift of a large number of minerals which he later decided to classify. The methods of mineral classification existing at the time were based on appearance and physical properties. These seemed highly unsystematic to Berzelius. He concluded from his analytical experience that a logical classification could be based only on chemical composition. In his original system, first published in 1814, he arranged the minerals in terms of their basic constituents, although he later revised this and placed chief emphasis on the acid component. Like many of Berzelius' innovations, his system of mineral classification was at first received with some hostility, but this was gradually overcome. During his visit to Paris in 1818 he won the approval of Haüy, the leading mineralogist of the day, whose own system was based on physical properties' (DSB).

        Herbier general de l'amateur, contenant la description, l'histoire, les proprietes et la culture des vegetaux utiles et agreables.

      . Paris: Audot (1816-1827). In eight volumes. 4to (25.0 x 16.1 cm). Half-title and title to each volume. With in total 575 hand-coloured, tissue-guarded plates with accompanying descriptive text leaves (complete). Collation is as follows: (1) [6], viii pp. 72 plates (1-72); (2) [8] pp., 70 plates (73-142), (3), 73 plates (143-212, 171bis, 172bis, 199bis), (4) [8] pp., 72 plates (213-284), (5) [8] pp., 72 plates (285-356), (6) 72 plates (357-428), (7) [8] pp., 72 plates (429-500), (8) [8,8], 8 pp. 72 plates (501-572); The numbers 171 and 172 have been used twice and are listed as 171bis and 172bis in the Errata to vol 3. Plate 199bis is a true bis-plate, 199 is a double-sized folding plate. Plate 384 is present here, which is very rarely seen in other sets. All volumes in matching contemporary half calf over pebbled boards, spines with uniform gilt lines and gilt title.* "The most important French flower periodical of its day" (J. J. White, in Delectus Hunteriana 26), started by de Launay, and after his death in 1816 continued and completed by Deslongchamps. The plates are after paintings by Pancrace Bessa (1772-1835), painter at the Museum nationale d'Histoire naturelle in Paris and pupil of Redoute. The accompanying text gives the generic and specific description, synonymy, origin, history, characteristics and use, medical, ornamental or otherwise, of each of the illustrated plants and flowers, as well as a description of the plate figures. Stafleu & Cowan (under "Loiseleur") only quotes 574 plates and state that plate 384 was never published, but we have it as "Dianthus caryophyllus, var. nommee l'OEillet des bois". Index to volume 6 absent. The index to the whole series is present (both in French and in Latin), as is the list of subscribers, among whom are the kings of France and Spain, and the emperors of Russia and Austria, as well as scientists such as Bonpland, Faujas de Saint-Fond, and Grandidier. Some, mostly marginal, light browning and spotting to some leaves and tissue guards. Bindings with some small skilful repairs to hinge. Overall, this set is in very good condition. The colouring of the plates is exceptionally realistic, bright and vivid. Nissen BBI, 2323; Stafleu & Cowan, 4952..

        "bey Ohlstadt 1816". Blick auf einen Mischwald mit einer Schleifmühle zwischen Felsen, dahinter ein Bergrücken, am Himmel Wolken.

      . Aquarell über Bleistift, datiert 1816, 48 x 39 cm.. Vgl. O. Pannewitz, Deutsche Landschaftszeichnungen des 18. Jahrhunderts, Staatsgalerie Stuttgart, 1985, Nr. 34 mit Abbildung S. 77. - Charakteristisch für die Wetzsteinmühlen dieser Gegend sind das oberschlächtige Wasserrad und die starke Neigung des Gerinnes. - Das großformatige Blatt insgesamt zeigt die für Kobell charakteristische Lichtführung. Die Wasserläufe und die fliegenden Wolken betonen durch das aufgetragene Deckweiß den hellen, farblich fein abgestimmten Vordergrund ebenso wie den fast monochromen Himmel. Wald und Berge dazwischen liegen in abgestuftem Halbdunkel. Kobells Interesse an der Bewegtheit natürlicher Einzelformen an sich rasch verändernden Eindrücken tritt lebendig hervor in der z.T. kühnen Farbgebung und in seinem expressiven Pinselstrich. Diese "aquarellierten Blätter von überraschender Modernität gehören mit zu den ausdruckstärksten, seiner Zeit weit vorausgreifenden Leistungen des Zeichners Franz Kobell" (O. Pannewitz). - Oben rechts Knickfalte. Wenige Fleckchen im Himmel. Alt auf blaues Zeichenpapier aufgelegt und dort beschriftet wie oben. In altem Biedermeierrahmen.

        Les monumens de la France classes chronologiquement et consideres sous le rapport des faits historiques et de l'etude des arts.

      Paris, Didot 1816-36.. 2 Bände. Imperial-Folio (60 x 45 cm). 3 Blatt, IV, 92 [von 94] Seiten; 3 Blatt, 52 Seiten [ohne 49/50]. Mit einem ganzseitigen Frontspiz in Bd. 1, 2 gestochenen Titelvignetten und 260 Kupferstichen auf Tafeln, davon 23 doppelblattgroß. Grünes Halbleder des späten 19. Jahrhunderts mit Rückenvergoldung. Kopfgoldschnitt. Einbände etwas berieben. Band 1 zu Beginn etwas knitterfaltig, fleckig und stockfleckig. Im Ganzen sehr sauber und frisch. Alle Tafeln und einige Textblätter mit einem unauffälligen Trockenstempel im Blattrand. Die doppelblattgroßen Bl. teilweise mit Leimschatten im Bugbereich. Bei ca. 3 Bl. Randeinrisse mit Japan hinterlegt. Tafel LXII nach XX eingebunden.. Brunet III, 714. Alexandre Louis Joseph Comte de Laborde (1773-1842) war wohlhabender Erbe eines Hofbankiers, Reise- und Kunstschriftsteller, Brigadegeneral, Jugendfreund Chateaubriands, Begleiter und Brautwerber für Napoleon, Diplomat und Politiker. Eine umfangreiche Würdigung des Verfassers und der hier vorliegenden "äußerst raren" Bände wurde verfasst von Christl Lehnert-Leven unter dem Titel "Zum Ruhme des Vaterlandes. Trierer Antiken in den Prachtbänden der 'Monumens de la France' von Alexandre Louis Joseph Comte de Laborde" und findet sich im Katalogband der Ausstellung "Unter der Trikolore. Sous le drapeau tricolore. Trier in Frankreich - Napoleon in Trier. Treves en France - Napoleon a Treves, hg. von Elisabeth Dühr und Christl Lehnert-Leven, Trier und Saarbrücken 2004, S. 784-822. Das umfangreiche Werk erschien demnach in 45 [??? - 36 ????] Lieferungen über den Zeitraum von 20 Jahren und der Preis für diesen Luxusartikel entsprach etwa dem Jahresgehalt eines Richters am Zivilgericht oder drei bis fünf Jahresgehältern eines Fabrikarbeiters. Da Trier zu Beginn der Studien Labordes innerhalb des französischen Staatsgebietes lag, fand es Aufnahme in der Publikation mit insgesamt 10 Blättern: drei Ansichten der Igeler Säule, ein Blatt mit Details dazu, Fragmente in Trier u.a., Ansichten des Domes, der Kaiserthermen und der Basilika sowie die beiden einzigartigen Doppelblätter mit der Porta Nigra während der Freilegung aufgrund des Befehls Napoleons. Wie meist ohne die jeweils einblättige Table chronologique für jeden Band. Die korrekte Tafelanzahl für ein vollständiges Exemplar wäre 258 Tafeln, obwohl in allen uns bekannten Bibliothekskatalogen 259 Tafeln genannt werden. Das ist schlichtweg falsch, da zwei Tafeln (CLXXX und CLXXXIIII) auf einem Blatt gedruckt wurden. Bei unserem Exemplar sind jedoch zwei Tafeln zusätzlich eingebunden, daher 260. Der Stecher der Bildlegenden war sich bei den Tafeln CV "Vue exterieure de l'arc de Carpentras" und CXVII "Vue d'un monument antique du moyen-age, a Mornas" bezüglich der Zuordnung nicht sicher und lieferte die Beschriftung daher kreuzweise doppelt, d.h. die bildlich korrekte Darstellung des Bogens von Carpentras liegt in zwei Beschriftungsvarianten vor (Carpentras und Mornas), bei Mornas entsprechend ebenso. Gutes und getrüffeltes Exemplar dieser seltenen Prachtpublikation.

        Cambria Depicta: A Tour Through North Wales, Illustrated with Picturesque Views

      London: For E. Williams. 1816. First Edition. Hardcover. Contemporary three quarter calf over marbled boards with gilt decoration on spine and contrasting spine label bearing gilt titles, spine ends rubbed, corners rubbed and lightly bumped, small ding to foredge of upper board, light wear to joints, vertical crease in ffep, some foxing to prelims, frontis offset to title page, 71 uncoloured aquatint plates with some offsetting otherwise internally clean and bright, two leaves of publisher's advertisements at rear. , Edward Pugh (bap.1763-1813) was a miniature painter and topographer. Pugh's father was a barber and so moderate means and just how the son aquired his training as an artist is unclear but by 1793 Pugh was exhibiting miniatures at the Royal Academy in London. Pugh described himself as being of only 'moderate talent' but that talent was sufficient for him to support himself and as well as producing miniatures he is known to have provided illustrations for several books. In 1804 Pugh began what would be his most important work, 'Cambria Depicta' and spent the next nine years travelling extensively on foot through North Wales. Pugh provided original drawings for the book's aquatint illustrations, as well as writing the text, which is written in the first person and from the perspective of a native Welshman. Working broadly within the eighteenth-century tradition of topographical and antiquarian descriptive writing, Pugh's is a fresh and democratic voice, expressing ambitions for the improvement of contemporary Welsh culture, as well as relating its history and myths and regaling his readers with interesting incidents, gossip, and his idiosyncratic opinions on aesthetics and the general state of the world. , 4to 11" - 13" tall, xv [i] + 476 [4] pp .

A scarcefirst edition of this social commentary which was intednded asa criticism of Malthus' population theory. An important work. Very scarce and a lovely bright copy still in the publishers binding. It upset Malthus so much that he wrote a stinging reply to it for the fifth edition of his 'population'. John Weyland was a magistrate and land-owner. In it, Weyland argues that an increase in population would be beneficial, and that a higher birthrate in the countryside was required in order to compensate for the higher mortality rate in the towns and cities. Rather attractive 19th centurybookplate of Worcester Library to front pastedown. Gilt shelf number to spine (could probably be professionally removed if desired ). Noother markings. Condition: Inpublishers originalcloth binding with paper-covered boards. Externally sound with good patina, though with some staining to the boards, and some wear to the spine. Remarkably good for such a fragile binding type. Internally, generally firmly bound, though slightly strained in places. Pages are bright, with some occasional scattered light spots.

        Emma: a Novel. In Three Volumes

      By the Author of "Pride and Prejudice," &c. &c. Three vols. 12mo, cont. dark red paper spines & marbled boards (minor wear upper joints of Vol. I & II and the lower joint of Vol. II), spines lettered in gilt, entirely uncut. London: printed for John Murray, 1816. First edition. A fine fresh copy, wholly uncut, of Jane Austen's fourth novel, the last published in her lifetime. The binding of this copy is clearly contemporary, and almost certainly continental, very possibly German. The spines are lettered "Emma By The Author of Pride and Prejudice," and the gilt numbering is gothic in style. With half-titles in Vols. II and III only. There is in fact a reason for the missing half-title in Vol. I, as this leaf was printed as part of the last signature, and was therefore either overlooked (and left in place) or discarded by many binders of the period. Even copies in original boards sometimes lack this half-title, most notably the Mount Bellew copy, described in the 1933 Sotheby's sale catalogue as "in the finest possible state." For the matchless condition of Mount Bellew novels, and the "sensational" sale at auction of certain highspots from the library, see Sadleir, p. xx. Wanting one rear flyleaf, but a very desirable copy. Preserved in a red morocco-backed box. ❧ Gilson A8. .

        A vocabulary, or collection of words and phrases which have been supposed to be peculiar to the United States of America. To which is prefixed an essay on the present state of the English Language in the United States.

      Cummings and Hilliard, Boston 1816 - First edition of the first book of Americanisms, 8vo, pp. [2], [9]- 206, [1]; later quarter straight-grain maroon morocco, gilt lettering direct on spine, old paper label adhered to spine, extremities rubbed, but otherwise good and sound. From the library of the marine historian and illustrator, Clifford, W. Ashley, with his bookplate laid in. Pickering wrote a number of philological pieces for the periodical press, as well as an important Greek lexicon, and he was the leading authority of his time on the languages of the North American Indian. This vocabulary of the American idiom was the first of its kind, and was a valuable source for Webster. It appeared originally in the Memoirs of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences, and is here printed with many corrections and additions. It was the only work on the subject until Bartlett's work in mid-century, and is still useful today. Sabin 62638; American Imprints 38631. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Cambria Depicta: A Tour Through North Wales, Illustrated with Picturesque Views

      For E. Williams, London 1816 - Contemporary three quarter calf over marbled boards with gilt decoration on spine and contrasting spine label bearing gilt titles, spine ends rubbed, corners rubbed and lightly bumped, small ding to foredge of upper board, light wear to joints, vertical crease in ffep, some foxing to prelims, frontis offset to title page, 71 uncoloured aquatint plates with some offsetting otherwise internally clean and bright, two leaves of publisher's advertisements at rear. , Edward Pugh (bap.1763-1813) was a miniature painter and topographer. Pugh's father was a barber and so moderate means and just how the son aquired his training as an artist is unclear but by 1793 Pugh was exhibiting miniatures at the Royal Academy in London. Pugh described himself as being of only 'moderate talent' but that talent was sufficient for him to support himself and as well as producing miniatures he is known to have provided illustrations for several books. In 1804 Pugh began what would be his most important work, 'Cambria Depicta' and spent the next nine years travelling extensively on foot through North Wales. Pugh provided original drawings for the book's aquatint illustrations, as well as writing the text, which is written in the first person and from the perspective of a native Welshman. Working broadly within the eighteenth-century tradition of topographical and antiquarian descriptive writing, Pugh's is a fresh and democratic voice, expressing ambitions for the improvement of contemporary Welsh culture, as well as relating its history and myths and regaling his readers with interesting incidents, gossip, and his idiosyncratic opinions on aesthetics and the general state of the world. , 4to 11" - 13" tall, xv [i] + 476 [4] pp [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

"Chief authority, well- documented, on these operations" (Howes). The eight maps (Sabin states that there are only seven) consist of battle plans and "A General Map of the Seat of War in Louisiana and West Florida," executed by Major Latour in his capacity as engineer. Streeter describes the maps and plans (which are sometimes found bound in a separate atlas) as "invaluable," and Clark calls the book "a detailed and precise narrative of the 1814-15 campaign from the first arrival of British forces on the Louisiana coast until their complete evacuation."

        THE FLY FISHER'S GUIDE.

      G. Cruikshank, Liverpool & Longman, etc., London. - (1816) 1828 2nd edition. Ppviii,162. Eight hand-coloured engraved plates, 1 plain plate, text woodcuts. Newly rebound in green cloth. * ".Illustrated by coloured plates representing upwards of forty of the most useful flies accurately copied from nature." In 1816 Bainbridge described and illustrated in colour a calendar of natural insects of interest to the angler, and gave dressings for their artificial imitations. He paved the way for the later angler-entomologists.* This copy has a large number of blank leaves at front and rear. These have taken the brunt of previous use and foxing so, apart from some off-setting of plates, the actual text-block is very clean. The leaves at the rear have several pages of contemporary hand-written lists of flies, fly dressings and techniques. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Historical memoir of the war in west Florida and Louisiana in 1814-15. With an atlas written in originally in French, and translated for the author, by H.P. Nugent, Esq.

      John Conrad & Co., Philadelphia 1816 - First edition, 8vo, pp. [iii]-xx, 264, cxc; plus a separately bound atlas containing 8 hand-colored maps, 7 folding, 1 with corner torn, with loss; frontispiece portrait of Andrew Jackson, apparently not present in all copies; 20th century green 3/4 morocco over marbled boards; text a bit spotted and foxed, but overall generally very good. One of the most important books on the War of 1812. "Major Latour's account of the military events is minute and interesting, and the appendix contains an invaluable collection of state papers" (Sabin). "Chief authority, well- documented, on these operations" (Howes). The eight maps (Sabin states that there are only seven) consist of battle plans and "A General Map of the Seat of War in Louisiana and West Florida," executed by Major Latour in his capacity as engineer. Streeter describes the maps and plans (which are sometimes found bound in a separate atlas) as "invaluable," and Clark calls the book "a detailed and precise narrative of the 1814-15 campaign from the first arrival of British forces on the Louisiana coast until their complete evacuation." Sabin 39214. Clark II:158. Streeter 1075. Howes L124; American Imprints 38034-5. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
