        Voyage de Découvertes aux Terres Australes... Sur les corvettes le Géographe, le Naturaliste, et la goélette le Casuarina, pendant les années 1800, 1801, 1802, 1803 et 1804.

      Paris: Imprimerie Impériale, 1807-1816. Two volumes, quarto, and large quarto atlas in two parts containing 41 full-page engravings, many in original handcolouring, and 14 fine charts; the text volumes uncut; a fine set in modern quarter morocco. First edition: the Baudin-Freycinet expedition, one of the most important early explorations of Australia. This is the rare and important official account of the Baudin voyage to Australia and the Pacific, 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 Australian coast in the region of Cape Leeuwin, arriving in May 1801. Péron sailed as naturalist on the expedition and Freycinet as cartographer. The vessels Géographe and Naturaliste sailed north from Cape Leeuwin. The expedition surveyed the coast and made observations on the natural history and inhabitants, until they crossed to Timor. After three months the two ships set out for Tasmania, the party continuing to make detailed surveys, and went on to Sydney. 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. It was a celebrated voyage, which 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.The Atlas Historique contains a series of wonderful coloured plates, some of the most beautiful of early views of Australia and fine natural history images, while the superb series of portraits of Aborigines represents the most compassionate yet honest portrayal of the displaced natives to be seen in any of the early voyage accounts. These exceptional illustrations are mostly by the remarkable artist Charles-Alexandre Lesueur: "Lesueur's scientific work runs parallel to artistic work of great importance. He was at one and the same time draughtsman and painter, naturalist and landscape artist. His talent was recognised in France in his own lifetime, by the award... of the silver medal of the Société des Beaux-Arts..." (Baudin in Australian Waters, p. 26).The narrative of the expedition was begun by Péron, and completed by Freycinet after Péron's death. A tacit agreement between Péron and Freycinet, both of whom disliked Baudin, kept the commander's name mostly absent from the account of the expedition. The French and English had completed their circumnavigations of the Australian continent at approximately the same time, but Flinders' imprisonment by the French on Mauritius meant that it was this French account which contained the first complete and detailed chart of the Australian continent to appear in print, one of the most beautiful, as well as one of the most famous of all maps of Australia. It also had immense geo-political significance with virtually the entire southern coast of Australia labelled "Terre Napoléon", indicating French colonial ambitions. Controversial even today, the map is often said to have been at least partly based on Flinders's charts and papers seized by the French. Much of the Baudin coastal exploration was commemorated by the numerous place-names along the Australian coast, especially in Tasmania and Western Australia.This set takes the form in which the book is usually seen, comprising the full narrative account and the Atlas Historique with its superb coloured plates. The important Atlas Hydrographique with accompanying text volume were separately published and distributed by a different bookseller: they are only very rarely found accompanying the official narrative. Small tear to the Australian map.

        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.

        Ueber die Seeräuber im Mittelmeer und ihre Vertilgung. Ein Völkerwunsch an den erlauchten Kongreß in Wien. Mit den nöthigen historischen und statistischen Erläuterungen.Lubeck, M. Michelsen, 1815. 8vo. 19th-century boards covered with paste-paper.

      Allgemeine Zeitung (Stuttgart), no. 46 (19 April 1816), p. 185. First and only edition (the first of two issues) of a detailed report on the pirates in the Mediterranean Sea, giving some historical information, but primarily concerned with the infamous "Barbary" pirates then still active off the coasts of Algiers, Morocco and Tunis (the Barbary Coast), along with accounts of the Christian slaves that were still held in these regions. Herrmann presented this work to the Congress of Vienna to convince the representatives of the importance and urgency of bringing the piracy to an end. The Congress did set up an anti-piracy commission to discuss the problem of the Barbary pirates, but the issue remained unsettled and was addressed again at the 1818 Congress of Aix-la-Chapelle. There too, the necessary international cooperation proved difficult and the piracy continued until the French conquest of Algiers in 1830.With a library's ownership inscription on the front paste-down and a stamp on the back of the title-page. With the imprint damaged, or label and with minor foxing, but otherwise in good condition. With the paste-paper scuffed and torn, but the binding remains structurally sound. A plea for a solution to the piracy problem at the end of the Napoleonic Wars.

Erstausgabe. - In seinem Erstlingswerk, der 1816 erschienenen Untersuchung Über das Conjugationssystem der Sanskritsprache [...], erbrachte Bopp den Nachweis der Zusammengehörigkeit dieser Sprachen aufgrund des Baus ihrer Verbalformen. Trotz vieler Fehler im einzelnen war so der genealogische Zusammenhang einer Reihe von indoeuropäischen Sprachen, auf den es seit Bonaventura Vulcanius Entdeckung von 1597, daß 22 Wörter im Deutschen und Persischen sich gleichen, immer wieder Hinweise gegeben hatte, wissenschaftlich erwiesen. Mit dem Conjugationssystem [...] markiert Bopp den Beginn einer neuen Epoche der Sprachwissenschaft: mit seinen Arbeiten wurde er zum maßgeblichen Wegbereiter der historisch-vergleichenden indoeuropäischen Sprachwissenschaft (DBE). - [...] Bopps Bedeutung liegt darin, daß er mehr als ein Grammatiker war. Er betrachtete vergleichende Sprachforschung als wesentlichen Bestandteil der historischen Erkenntnis. Aus dem Wortschatz der frühesten indoeuropäischen Stämmen gewann er ein zuverlässiges Bild ihres physischen und geistigen Lebens (Carter/Muir, Bücher die die Welt verändern, S. 506f.). - Einband stärker beschabt u. bestoßen.

        Narrative of a Ten Years Residence at Tripoli in Africa: from the original correspondence in the possession of the family of the Late Richard Tully, Esq. The British Consul. Comprising authentic memoirs and anecdotes of the Reigning Bashaw, his family, and other persons of distinction; also, an account of the domestic manners of the Moors, Arabs, and Turks. Illustrated with a map and several coloured plates.

      First edition. Printed for Henry Colburn, British and Foreign Public Library, Conduit Street, Hanover Square. London. 1816. 4to. xiii, bl., (2), 370pp. Folding map, 5 hand coloured tissue guarded plates. Later half calf, spine in six compartments with raised banding, gilt lettering and motifs, marbled boards, new endpapers. Short detachment of tissue guard and title page to lower gutter. Very occasional spotting.Richard Tully was the British Consul at Tripoli from 1783 to 1793, and, according to the preface, these letters were written by his sister; and attributed to his siter-in-law in the second and third editions. The author's identity has always been a mystery: there is no record of a sister, nor of another female family member residing in Tripoli apart from Mr Tully's wife and two daughters. The final entry is dated April 30, 1795, Gibraltar. "It reads: Since you must have had my letters with the journal of Tripoli…". Louisa Maria Tully (daughter of Richard Tully) married Alexander Simpson on 19 March 1795 in Gibraltar. Her sister, Anne, married Gaspar Gomez de la Serna Perez de Beas, having four children before his death in 1808, residing in Minorca. Both daughters were fluent in Arabic, both were intimate with the court of Tripoli, regarded as daughters of the Court. Mrs Tully may be discounted as the author as she is referred to in the third person. The first person author[s] are variably "we" or "I". Byron admitted plagiarism "by the way, much of the description of the furniture, in Canto Third, [of Don Juan] is Taken from Tully's Tripoli (pray note this)… Remember I never meant to conceal this at all."

        Über das Conjugationssystem der Sanskritsprache in Vergleichung mit jenem der griechischen, lateinischen, persischen und germanischen Sprache. Nebst Episoden des Ramajan und Mahabharat in genauen metrischen Uebersetzungen aus dem Originaltexte und einigen Abschnitten aus den Veda‘s. Herausgegeben und mit Vorerinnerungen begleitet von K. J. Windischmann.

      Frankfurt a. M., in der Andreäischen Buchhandlung, 1816. - Erstausgabe. - „In seinem Erstlingswerk, der 1816 erschienenen ‚Untersuchung Über das Conjugationssystem der Sanskritsprache [.]‘, erbrachte Bopp den Nachweis der Zusammengehörigkeit dieser Sprachen aufgrund des Baus ihrer Verbalformen. Trotz vieler Fehler im einzelnen war so der genealogische Zusammenhang einer Reihe von indoeuropäischen Sprachen, auf den es seit Bonaventura Vulcanius’ Entdeckung von 1597, daß 22 Wörter im Deutschen und Persischen sich gleichen, immer wieder Hinweise gegeben hatte, wissenschaftlich erwiesen. Mit dem Conjugationssystem [.] markiert Bopp den Beginn einer neuen Epoche der Sprachwissenschaft: mit seinen Arbeiten wurde er zum maßgeblichen Wegbereiter der historisch-vergleichenden indoeuropäischen Sprachwissenschaft" (DBE). - „[.] Bopps Bedeutung liegt darin, daß er mehr als ein Grammatiker war. Er betrachtete vergleichende Sprachforschung als wesentlichen Bestandteil der historischen Erkenntnis. Aus dem Wortschatz der frühesten indoeuropäischen Stämmen gewann er ein zuverlässiges Bild ihres physischen und geistigen Lebens" (Carter/Muir, Bücher die die Welt verändern, S. 506f.). - Einband stärker beschabt u. bestoßen.

        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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Reise nach dem Austral-Lande, in der Absicht die Entdeckung desselben zu vollenden; unternommen in den Jahren 1801, 1802 und 1803. Aus dem Englischen von Ferdinand Götze.

      Weimar: Landes-Industrie-Comptoir, 1816. Octavo, large folding map coloured in outline; an attractive copy in contemporary half calf, flat spine banded and decorated in gilt, leather labels. The very rare first edition in German of Flinders' great voyage account, the official narrative of his classic voyage of discovery in the Investigator, the first circumnavigation of Australia, 'an enlightening and fascinating story of brilliant navigation and discovery' (DNB). Flinders' voyage was a full-scale expedition to discover and explore the entire coastline of Australia (the name that Flinders himself preferred and championed). As Rodney Davidson points out, "the German edition is of particular interest because of its accompanying map": the map identifies Dutch, English and French discoveries on the Australian continent, picking them out in different colours. The text was translated from the English by Ferdinand Götze, who adds a brief preface and some explanatory footnotes; the appendices and two nautical/technical chapters that appeared in the original English edition are omitted. Flinders' work was of great interest to its German audience, then and now. As Henze has pointed out, 'Seine Karten übertreffen die Cookschen an Reichhaltigkeit und Präzision und waren für einige Gebiete noch während des Zweiten Weltkriegs in Gebrauch. Sein Reisewerk steht in der Entdeckungsgeschickte des fünften Kontinents nach Form und Inhalt ohne Gegenstück da' [''His maps surpass even those of Cook in their richness and accuracy, and continued in use for some areas even during the Second World War. His chief significance for the literature of discovery is in his exploration of the fifth continent, unparalleled in its scope and skilful execution'].Although separately issued this was also published as the sixth volume in the series 'Neue Bibliothek der wichtigsten Reisebeschreibungen': in that form it would contain a series title, not present here in this undisturbed volume. Spine slightly rubbed but in generally excellent condition, with the map in fine state.

      London: John Murray, 1816. Tall octavo, bound with the half-title but without the advertisement leaves; edges slightly trimmed and top-edge gilt; full tan calf by Sangorski and Sutcliffe. First edition: a beautiful copy of this important book, printing 'Kubla Khan' (arguably the most famous poem in the English language) and 'Christabel', widely considered Coleridge's most accomplished poetic composition.With characteristic self-deprecation, Coleridge states in his preface to 'Christabel' that 'my poetic powers have been, till very lately, in a state of suspended animation' and that the poem would have far better if he wrote it as a younger man. Likewise, the oft-quoted preface to 'Kubla Khan' laments the poverty of the poet faced with the mercurial intensity of an opium dream. Elsewhere Coleridge propounded the guiding paradigms of effective romantic poetry - that it be 'simple, sensuous, passionate' - aspirations powerfully manifest in the compositions published here for the first time. Fine.

        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 sent 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.

        The story of Rimini a poem.

      London: J. Murray, 1816. Octavo; in original boards. First edition.Although best remembered as friend and supporter to Keats and Shelley, Hunt was also a well-regarded and popular poet, and in this re-working of the tragedy of Paulo and Francesca from Dante's Inferno, he displays both his love of Italian literature and the reintroduction of freer verse forms into English poetry, both of which would inspire Keats, whom Hunt first met in 1816. Although its popularity has waned, it is still regarded as an important 'landmark in English poetry' (Mitchell). Fine.

        Voyage de Découvertes aux Terres Australes... Sur les corvettes le Géographe, le Naturaliste, et la goélette le Casuarina, pendant les années 1800, 1801, 1802, 1803 et 1804.

      Paris: Imprimerie Impériale, 1807-1816. Two volumes, quarto, and large quarto atlas in two parts containing 41 full-page engravings, many in original handcolouring, and 14 fine charts; the text volumes uncut; a fine set in modern quarter morocco. First edition: the Baudin-Freycinet expedition, one of the most important early explorations of Australia. This is the rare and important official account of the Baudin voyage to Australia and the Pacific, 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 Australian coast in the region of Cape Leeuwin, arriving in May 1801. Péron sailed as naturalist on the expedition and Freycinet as cartographer. The vessels Géographe and Naturaliste sailed north from Cape Leeuwin. The expedition surveyed the coast and made observations on the natural history and inhabitants, until they crossed to Timor. After three months the two ships set out for Tasmania, the party continuing to make detailed surveys, and went on to Sydney. 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. It was a celebrated voyage, which 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.The Atlas Historique contains a series of wonderful coloured plates, some of the most beautiful of early views of Australia and fine natural history images, while the superb series of portraits of Aborigines represents the most compassionate yet honest portrayal of the displaced natives to be seen in any of the early voyage accounts. These exceptional illustrations are mostly by the remarkable artist Charles-Alexandre Lesueur: "Lesueur's scientific work runs parallel to artistic work of great importance. He was at one and the same time draughtsman and painter, naturalist and landscape artist. His talent was recognised in France in his own lifetime, by the award... of the silver medal of the Société des Beaux-Arts... " (Baudin in Australian Waters, p. 26).The narrative of the expedition was begun by Péron, and completed by Freycinet after Péron's death. A tacit agreement between Péron and Freycinet, both of whom disliked Baudin, kept the commander's name mostly absent from the account of the expedition. The French and English had completed their circumnavigations of the Australian continent at approximately the same time, but Flinders' imprisonment by the French on Mauritius meant that it was this French account which contained the first complete and detailed chart of the Australian continent to appear in print, one of the most beautiful, as well as one of the most famous of all maps of Australia. It also had immense geo-political significance with virtually the entire southern coast of Australia labelled "Terre Napoléon", indicating French colonial ambitions. Controversial even today, the map is often said to have been at least partly based on Flinders's charts and papers seized by the French. Much of the Baudin coastal exploration was commemorated by the numerous place-names along the Australian coast, especially in Tasmania and Western Australia.This set takes the form in which the book is usually seen, comprising the full narrative account and the Atlas Historique with its superb coloured plates. The important Atlas Hydrographique with accompanying text volume were separately published and distributed by a different bookseller: they are only very rarely found accompanying the official narrative. Small tear to the Australian map.
