        TRAITÉ PRATIQUE DE L'ÉCLAIRAGE PAR LE GAZ INFLAMMABLE, contenant une description sommaire de l'appareil et du mécanisme employés pour l'illumination des rues, des maisons et des manufactures, à l'aide du gaz hydrogène carburé, tiré du charbon de terre ; accompagné de remarques sur l'utilité, la sûreté et la nature générale de cette nouvelle branche d'économie civile. (exemplaire du Duc de Wellington)

      Paris, Chez l'auteur et chez Nepveu 1816 In-8° relié demi-percaline bleue de l'époque à la bradel, (132 X 213) ; faux-titre, frontispice dépliant, titre, 73 pages, VI-176 pages, 7 planches gravées. Cachet gras de la Société du gaz sur la page de titre. RARE EDITION ORIGINALE française, traduite de l'anglais sur la troisième édition de Friedrich ACCUM, publiée et augmentée par Friedrich Albert WINSOR. Ouvrage orné d'un FRONTISPICE dépliant et de HUIT PLANCHES gravées, dont sept dépliantes. Ce TRAITÉ est UN DES OUVRAGES MAJEURS du chimiste allemand Friedrich ACCUM (1769-1838), qui s'est attaché, sa carrière durant, à donner des débouchés concrets et pratiques aux progrès de la science, à l'époque où la révolution industrielle connaissait ses premiers développements. Accum s'impliqua dans le domaine du gaz d'éclairage, influencé dans ce sens par Frederick Albert WINSOR (1763-1830) qui avait promu la fondation d'une entreprise visant à introduire l'éclairage au gaz à Londres. Sur la demande de la "Gas Light and Coke Company", Accum entreprit de nombreuses expériences sur le sujet et, en 1812, il devint membre du conseil d'administration de l'entreprise. L'utilisation du gaz d'éclairage pour l'éclairage public ou dans la sphère privée passa notamment par la création de la première grande usine de production de gaz dont il fut l'un des concepteurs. Ouvrage NOVATEUR, ce traité tient une place importante dans l'histoire des découvertes scientifiques de cette époque. (QUÉRARD, I-6). EXEMPLAIRE du Duc de Wellington comme en témoigne l'envoi de l'auteur figurant au verso.

        The Principles of Population and Production, as they are affected by the Progress of Society; with a view to moral and political consequences

      London: Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy, etc., 1816. Modern marbled boards with calf spine. New endpapers. Octavo. Errata at the foot of last page, and ads on verso. Pp. 454-9 bound upside down. Ink numerical stamp on last page. A very good, clean copy. A provocative attack on Malthus. Weyland's controversial contribution to population advocated an increase in population as a counterbalance to the flight of people from rural to urban life. Malthus, while having only a limited regard for Weyland, was sufficiently provoked to publish a lengthy reply in the fifth edition of his Essay on Population (1817). "In 1816 Weyland followed up his pamphlets with a volume of nearly 500 pages to show why he thought population needed encouraging … According to Malthus, "Mr. Weyland really appears to have dictated this book with his eyes blindfolded and his ears stopped. I have a great respect for his character and intentions; but I must say it has never been my fortune to meet with a theory so uniformly contradicted by experience" (James, Population Malthus, pp 372/3).

        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). .

        Monographie des Melastomacées, comprenant toutes les plantes de cet ordre recueillies jusqu'à ce jour, et notamment au Mexique, dans l'île de Cuba, dans les provinces de Caracas, de Cumana et de Barcelone, aux Andes de la Nouvelle Grenade, de Quito et du Pérou, et sur les bords du Rio Negro, de l'Orénoque et de la rivière des Amazones. MELASTOMES & [vol. II:] REXIES.

      Paris, Librairie Grecque-Latine-Allemande/Gide fils, 1816-1823. 2 volumes. Folio (490 x 340mm). pp. (12), vi, 142, (4); (8), ii, 158, (2), with 120 fine colour-printed engraved plates and finished by hand. Contemporary half calf, richly gilt decorated spines, with 6 raised bands, red and green gilt-lettered labels and A.V. monogram (one volume with small skilful repair). First edition. These splendid monographs form part of Humboldt's 'Voyage aux régions équinoxiales du Nouveau Continent fait en 1799-1804'. "It is perhaps one of the grandest works on American Botany ever put forth" (Sabin). "The expedition to South America and Central America in the years 1799 to 1804 by Friedrich Heinrich Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) and Aimé Jacques Alexander von Bonpland (1773-1858) has long been accepted as the most important ever made to America, because its results, based upon study by many specialists of the immense quantity of specimens and observations relating to botany, zoology, geology, geography and history which they amassed with almost incredible industry and often under great difficulty, were... made available within a comparatively short time afterwards.... Humboldt and Bonpland journeyed into regions then little known or never before scientifically investigated" (Stearn, Humboldt and Bonpland's 'Voyage aux Régions équinoxiales'). The botanical section of the voyage consists of 6 sections, of which the present second section, here offered, is probably the most beautifully produced one. The complete account was published in 34 volumes (with about 1.200 plates) over a period of 25 years and cost about 780.000 French francs. The publication of this immense work was done in Paris where Cuvier, Gay-Lussac, Latreille, and many others co-operated with him. The beautiful plates of the here offered volumes are all printed in colour by the famous French printing establishment Langlois, after drawings by the leading French artists Poiteau and Turpin. "Pierre Turpin (1775-1840), who has been hailed as possibly the finest French natural botanical artist of his period, came from humble beginnings. He was the son of a poor artisan and learned the elements of drawing at the art school at Vire before enlisting in the batallion du Calvados at the age of fourteen. Pierre Poiteau (1766-1854) was a self-taught botanist and artist who spent his early career working as a gardener at the Jardin des Plantes where he made enough of an impression to be chosen to be sent to set up a botanic garden at Bergerac. This accomplished, he was next sent as a plant collector to Santo Domingo by the Jardin, where fate stepped in as he met and became friends with Turpin, who was stationed there with the French army. The friendship developed into an artistic collaboration which provided illustrations for some of the most elaborate botanical publications of the period including several of the botanical volumes depicting the discoveries made by Friedrich Alexander von Humboldt and Aimé Bonpland in the course of their exploration of Central and South America from 1799 to 1804" (Stanley Johnston). Some very occasional offsetting. Provenance: The copy of the Archduke A(lbert) V(ictor) of Austria with his monogram A.V. on spines. Nissen BBI, 954; Sabin 33762 & 33763; Stafleu & Cowan 3142.

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

      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).

        Kyôchûzan (Mountains of the Heart)

      Suzan Shobo (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.

Bookplate of [John Lowell "Jack"] Gardner Jr (1837-1898), husband of Isabella Stewart Gardner (1840 - 1924), legendary queen of Boston society. She is quoted as saying, "Don't spoil a good story by telling the truth.", Smith's groundbreaking work on the individual's right to the free exercise of economic activity, "the first and greatest classic of modern economic thought" (PMM 221) Smith spent the next ten years writing The Wealth of Nations (mainly from his lecture notes) which was first published in 1776. An often-quoted passage from The Wealth of Nations is: "It is not from the benevolence of the butcher, the brewer, or the baker that we expect our dinner, but from their regard to their own self-interest. We address ourselves, not to their humanity but to their self-love, and never talk to them of our own necessities but of their advantages"

        Memoire et rapports sur les fumigations sulfureuse. . .au traitement des affections cutanees

      Imprimerie Royale Paris: Imprimerie Royale, 1816. Gal? Jean-Chrysanthe (1783-1845). M?ire et rapports sur les fumigations sulfureuses appliqu? au traitement des affections cutan? et de plusieurs autres maladies. 8vo. [4] 137 [1], 3 [1]pp. 7 hand-colored and 3 uncolored engraved plates, on blue paper. Paris: de l'Imprimerie Royale; chez l'auteur, 1816. 200 x 123 mm. In a beautiful binding, probably for presentation, of straight-grain morocco, gilt circa 1816, all edges gilt, rubbed at hinges, corners & extremities, spine a little faded. Some foxing, but very good.First Edition, First Issue, Variant with Hand-Colored Plates not noted in Ehring. Gal?developed a method of treating scabies and other generalized skin disorders by means of fumigation with sulfur vapors. Gal?is best remembered for his infamous "rediscovery" of the scabies mite in 1812; the supposed acarus, which he claimed to have found in the scabies vesicle (an incorrect location), was actually a common cheese mite, artfully placed in the vesicle by Gal?himself (see Crissey & Parish, pp. 61-68). There appear to be two versions of the first edition of the M?ire recorded in OCLC and the printed sources: one with 137 pages and either 7 or 8 plates illustrating various cases; and one with 4 additional pages and 11 plates, the additional plates showing the fumigating apparatus. Ehring makes no mention of copies with colored plates and uses a black-and-white engraving from the second edition of 1824 to illustrate his commentary on Gal?s work. Given Ehring's focus on illustrations of skin diseases, it is virtually certain that Ehring would have cited and illustrated the colored-plate variant had he known of it. Ehring, Skin Diseases, pp. 122-23 (describing a copy with 137pp. and 11 plates, which may be an error). Waller 3398 (copy with 137pp. & 8 plates).

        Memoirs of My Own Times, Volume II

      Abraham Small Philadelphia: Abraham Small. 1816. First. First edition. Volume Two only. Fair in original paper covered boards with spine nearly perished, spine lable present but chipped/cracked, front and rear endpapers detached but present, both boards detached. This is second book of the vast, defensive, three volume memoir by one of the most senior and controversial officers in Continental Army/United States Army. He has been characterized by the historian Robert Leckie as a general who "had never won a battle or lost a court-martial" and this volume catalogues several of his vindications in the face of charges that he abused his power or was negligent. He both held high offices and was tarnished by his intriques: he was the most senior officer in the US Army after Washington and Hamilton and was first governor of the Louisiana Territory, yet he resigned his first commission due to corruption charges, was later proved to have been in secret negotiations with the Spanish to set up a fief of his own in Kentucky, was suspected of conspiracy with Aaron Burr to set up an independent nation in the West, and was court-martialed by James Madison, which is the concern of the first chapter of the book . .

        Five autograph letters signed

      Woolwich, 1816. Gregory, Olinthus Gilbert (1774-1841). Five autograph letters signed, three to Robert Baldwin, of the publishing firm Baldwin, Cradock & Joy, and two to an unidentified officer of the Woolwich Institution for the Advancement of Literary, Scientific and Technical Knowledge. Woolwich, Sept. 28, 1816 - July 16, 1838. 11pp. total. Various sizes (the largest 251 x 203 mm.). One letter mounted with some fraying of the front edge (slightly affecting a few words), another with a small paper flaw, light soiling, but very good.From British mathematician and writer Olinthus Gregory, professor of mathematics at the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich, author of works on mathematics, astronomy, mechanics, etc., and editor of both the Gentleman's Diary and Ladies' Diary. Gregory played a role in the controversy surrounding the Trigonometrical Survey of Great Britain, later known as the Ordnance Survey. The survey, which had begun in 1791, was opposed for political reasons by Royal Society President Sir Joseph Banks, who in 1812 published in the Philosophical Transactions a memoir by Don Jos?odriguez attacking the survey and its leader, Col. William Mudge. Gregory exposed Banks's machinations in a paper published in the Philosophical Magazine, which was later collected in Dissertations and Letters, by Don Joseph Rodriguez, the Chevalier Delambre, Baron de Zach, Dr. Thomas Thomson, Dr. Olinthus Gregory, and Others . . . Tending Either to Impugn or to Defend the Trigonometrical Survey of England and Wales (1815). Gregory's 1817 letter to Baldwin, one of the publishers of the Annals of Philosophy, discusses this controversy, noting that its effect had been to produce "a strong current in Col. Mudge's favour among all the men of science in Europe . . . the French Institute has made Col. Mudge a member, expressly on account of his survey: and immediately after this, the Royal Society, or I should rather say Sir Jos. Banks's party, who had for years been doing every thing to sink his reputation, change their conduct, flatter and fawn upon him, elect them into their councils . . ."Gregory's remaining letters to Baldwin discuss literary matters, including his "account of Biot's new work [Traité de physique (1816)] for the next no. of the British review." His later letters, written to an unnamed official at Woolwich Institution for the Advancement of Literary, Scientific and Technical Knowledge, include a long discussion as to why the Institution's reading room should not provide daily newspapers for its largely working-class clientele!

Rääfs exlibris vars klister ngt missfärgat de främre omslagen.. Lundstedt 21. Allt som utkom. Utgiven av J. C. Askelöf, Clas Livijn och F. B. von Schwerin. Dessa tre var även författare till de nationalekonomiska artiklar som trycktes i tidskriften. "Läsning till utbredande af medborgerliga kunskaper" lades enligt "Svenskt biografiskt lexikon" ned "i protest mot tendenserna till förhandscensur". I detta exemplar är bifogat en alternativ tryckning av tredje häftets sjunde ark (s. 97-112). Det är en variant vars sättning skiljer sig från den slutgiltiga. Schwerins förklaring till varför han frånsäger sig redaktörskapet till tidskriften är i denna variant utförligare formulerad. Hädanefter ämnar han utge sina uppsatser i bokform under titeln "Läsning för swenska medborgare", sannolikt förverkligad i form av författarens "Bidrag till kännedom af fäderneslandet".

Ngt nött samtida hfrbd med guldornerad rygg och titeletikett i glättad papp. Svagt gula snitt. Ryggen lite flammig och med skada överst. Pärmarna med ett par repor tvärs över. Inlagan med tydliga bruksspår och en del småfläckar, t.ex. i del I på s. 40-46 i översta hörnet. En tråkig solkfläck på s. 96-106 i del II. Med B. C. Finemans namnteckning på titelbladet och A. Finemans guldpräglade namnetikett nederst på ryggen.. Originalet med titeln "Die Ignoranten" utkom första gången 1803. Den svenska översättaren placerade historien i Härjedalen. Friedrich Gustav Schilling (1766-1839) var en produktiv och inte bara i hemlandet Tyskland en för sin tid omtyckt och läst författare. Som femtonåring inledde han en militär bana, blev så småningom kapten men drog sig tillbaka till det civila livet efter nederlaget mot de franska trupperna vid Jena och Auerstedt 1806. Hans samlade verk omfattar ett åttiotal band bestående av romaner, berättelser och även en räcka erotiska titlar. Till svenska översattes också den omfångsrika "Qvinnan, sådan hon är" 1817 och "Resan efter döden" 1832 samt de mindre berättelserna "Snöraset eller de älskande wid foten af Alperne" 1820, "Inquarteringen eller prestgården wid landswägen" 1820, "Maskradbalen eller det oförmodade faderskapet" 1820, "Friarne" 1826, "Tåren" 1827 och "Dikterskan" 1845

      Additae hinc inde sunt generaliores de linguarum origine observationes. 1-2. Stockholm, Henr. A. Nordström, 1816. 8:o. 530; 574,+ (2) s. Lagad reva, utan textförlust, s. 71 i första delen, samt ett par obetydliga småfläckar. Vackra välbevarade hfrbd med blind- och gulddekorerade ryggar, marmorerade pärmpapper och grönsprängda snitt. Från L. F. Rääfs bibliotek på Forsnäs och med dess exlibris. Två volymer. Fint exemplar. Hallenbergs stora etymologiska lexikon kom bara till handskriftstadiet, men han lyckades publicera denna studie över termerna "ljus" och "syn" med lärda paralleller till övriga europeiska och asiatiska språk samt koppling till solkulter. "Man känner sig försatt till Stiernhielms och Rudbecks dagar, ..." för att citera Lindroth. Hallenberg var bl. a. en av de första svenskar som studerade sanskrit. Enligt obekräftad uppgift skall boken endast vara tryckt i 30 exemplar. Oavsett denna uppgifts giltighet, syns den ytterst sällan till

        History of the Merchant Taylors' School

      London: Ackermann 1816 London: Ackermann, 1816. (ACKERMANN, RUDOLPH) First Edition, First Issue (paper watermarked 1816). Folio. Illustrated with two hand-colored aquatint engravings: by Stadler after Pugin, and Havell after McKenzie. Original drab brown wrappers, uncut, printed label on upper cover, spine perished, some chips to fore- edge, else a very good, tall copy in its original state. Abbey Scenery 438; Tooley 3 . This folio forms part of one of Ackermann's larger, though not so successful projects, his History of the Colleges. Ford in his book on Ackermann notes that William Combe wrote the text for this, as well as five other schools, in 1811, though the book itself did not appear until 1816, with plates. Ackermann believed that "Old Boys" would buy up the volumes with great sentimental gusto; the fact is, the initial subscription was less than 400. He then bound up the remaining sheets separately and sold them as individual folios, this being on of them. Tooley notes that most of these have later issue plates

      Poëtiska försök. I-II. Sthlm, Kongl. ordens-boktryckeriet, 1816. 8:o. (8),159,(1) + (2),150 s. Samtida ngt nött läckert och originellt blindpressat saffianbd med smalt guldornerat ramverk på pärmarna och gula snitt, stämpelsignerat på eftersättsbladets insida av H. C. Richter. Ryggen ngt blekt. Någon enstaka småfläck. Med Gustav Oxenstiernas exlibris, Göteborgs museums stpl och duplettstpl på titelbladet samt Anders Börjes guldpräglade namn på insidan av frampärmen och dennes bläckanteckning på bakre pärmens insida.. Andra delen innehåller en översättning av "Semiramis" av Voltaire och "Oscar, Ossians son" (från franskan). Anders Carlsson af Kullberg (1771-1851) krönte sin långa ämbetsmannakarriär med utnämningen till biskop i Kalmar 1830 trots att han inte hade någon teologisk utbildning. Han tillhörde kretsen kring Gyllenborg, Leopold och Oxenstierna och valdes in i Svenska akademien 1817. Gustav Oxenstierna var skalden J. G. Oxenstiernas son och det är inte omöjligt att det fint bundna exemplaret var en gåva från Kullberg till fadern. H. C. Richter (1756-1829) var en av sin tids främsta bokbindare i Stockholm. Han var född i Åbo där han också hade sin lärlingstid. Därefter vistades han en längre tid i St. Petersburg där han uppenbarligen satte upp en egen verksamhet. 1793 flyttade han till Stockholm efter att 1791 av Gustav III blivit befriad från att lämna mästarprov till Bokbindarmästarämbetet och beviljats rätt att öppna egen verkstad. Arvid Hedberg skriver i "Stockholms bokbindare" att "Richters verksamhet har lämnat vackra vittnesbörd om hans yrkesskicklighet"

        The History of the Renowned Prince Arthur, King of Britain: With His Life and Death, and all His Glorious Battles, Likewise, the Noble Acts and Heroic Deeds of His Valiant Knights of the Round Table

      London: Walker and Edwards, 1816. Hardcover. Very good. Two volumes, 24mo. Each volume has an engraved frontispiece and dual title pages, one engraved in each volume and one typeset. The engraved pages are by Charles Warren after Thomas Uwins. Original tan printed paper over boards, the upper boards typeset within a decorative border, and the rear boards listing the publisher's advertisements (Walker British Classics) showing 59 titles of which King Arthur is the last. Neat stamp and small plate from a Jesuit College library on the reverse of the engraved title and on the half title, respectively, and with some handwritten numbers on the front pastedowns, a small handwritten number on the bottom margin of the titles, light wear to the edges, hinges partially cracked but firm, and light soil else a very good set with fine, unfoxed textblocks in a remarkably preserved fragile binding. Copies of this edition in the original printed boards are truly rare as nearly all were rebound. This is the seventh edition of Malory's Morte d'Arthur, preceded only by editions in 1485, 1498, 1529, 1557, 1578 and 1634, all but the last unobtainable, and the edition of 1634 edition extremely rare. After 1634 no editions of Malory were printed until this edition of 1816. In a modern custom clamshell case, red leather spine, gilt, with marbled paper sides.

"Poetisk kalender" blev populärare bland allmänheten än "Phosphoros" och därmed en viktig plattform för spridandet av nya skolans program. Den hade som förebild tyska litterära kalendrar och innehåller både dikt och prosa samt en del översättningar, inte minst av tyska författare. Atterboms skrev mycket själv, men även hans vänner bidrog med material och medarbetarskaran var talrik, bland vilka kan nämnas Afzelius, Dahlgren, Geijer, Gottlund, Hammarsköld, Hedborn, Ingelgren, Nicander, Julia Christina Nyberg, Palmblad och Sondén. Bland Atterboms främsta bidrag räknas diktcykeln "Blommorna" och det kvasidramatiska fragmentet "Fågel blå". Exemplaret avbildas i Libris katalog 26 där Per A. Sjögrens första vitterhetssamling såldes 1963
