        HISTOIRE NATURELLE BOTANIQUE [manuscript title]

      [France], 1816. Fifteen watercolors, each with an accompanying manuscript text leaf, plus watercolor and gold title leaf, on sheets approximately 14 1/2 x 11 inches. Contemporary green morocco, spine gilt lettered, a.e.g. Boards a bit scuffed, edges somewhat worn, spine faded. Occasional faint foxing. Very good. An exceptional album of fifteen botanical watercolors, which are accompanied by an expertly accomplished manuscript description within blue and gilt borders. Each image depicts a different class of plant life, while the text describes families of plants within that class. The images range from agarics (mushrooms) to ornate roses and camellias, and include watercolors of honeysuckle, blueberries, azaleas, oaks, and marvels-of-peru. Every text leaf contains a detailed analysis of the different families of the depicted plant in a neat and legible French hand. A beautiful example of an amateur artist's book of botanical scholarship.

        A System of Mineralogy

      Edinburgh: Printed by Neill & Company for Archibald Constable and Company; and Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme & Brown, London, 1816. Second edition. Three volumes. Contemporary tan half calf over marbled boards, spines with blind rules and gilt lettered green labels, the bookplate of Arthur Hill of Bruce Castle to the front pastedowns. 13 folding plates. Some foxing the plates, the outer edge of one of which has been shaved with a very small loss of the printing, some patchiness to the spines, a very good set. Bruce Castle was a school founded in 1827 in Tottenham by Rowland Hill, the great postal reformer, and his brother Arthur. When Rowland Hill stood down as headteacher in the early 1830s to pursue other interests Arthur took on the job, a position that he held until his retirement in 1866. During their tenures the school became well renowned for its progressive teaching methods, the broad curriculum in which they schooled their pupils and the strong emphasis that they placed on the sciences. It was highly successful and attracted pupils from wealthy families, including the children of Charles Babbage.

        Der Freiheitskampf in Texas im Jahre 1836. 4 Theile in einem Bande. EA der Editon.

      IV, 293 S., 2 Bl. (Verlagsanzeigen). Kl. 8 (13,7x 9,5 cm). HLederband des ausgehenden 20. Jhdts mit Rückentitel und -vergoldung. Sabin 22072 (VI, 124). Der radikale Studentenführer Hermann Ehrenberg (1816-1866) mußte 1834 Deutschland verlassen und schloß sich 1835 der Kompanie der New Orleans Greys an, um im texanischen Freiheitskrieg zu kämpfen. Er war einer der wenigen Überlebenden des Goliad Massakers und wurde vom Staat mit 140 Dollars und 3000 acres Land nach seinem Ausscheiden aus der Armee belohnt. 1836 zurück in Deutschland, studiert er in Freiburg/Breisgau oder, wahrscheinlicher, Freiberg in Thürigen Bergbau. Wieder in den USA (1844) schürfte er erfolgreich Silber und Gold, so dass Mineral City in Arizona ihm zu Ehren in Ehrenberg umbenannt wurde er wurde zum bedeutensten zivilen Kartographen der Gebiete westlich vom Mississippi, so dass ihn zu Ehren im Grand Canyon National Park ein Berg den Namen Ehrenberg Peak trägt - ein Leben, das Karl May nicht hätte abenteuerlicher erzählen können, bei Ehrenberg aber Wirklichkeit war. Der Verleger Wigand begründet die Herausgabe dieses autobiographischen Werkes innerhalb seiner Kabinetsbibliothek ausländischer Romane über seine Selbstverpflichtung der Allgemeinbildung hinaus mit Ehrenbergs antiklerikaler und antifeudaler, d. h. kritischer und demokratischer Haltung. Wie Carl Schurz oder Johann Most ist Ehrenberg ein weiterer deutscher Demokrat, der in der Heimat nichts galt und in den USA an der Geschichte mitschrieb. Diese Ausgabe ist ein unveränderter Nachdruck des 2 Jahr früher erschienenen "Texas und seine Revolution". Papier gebräunt und teils fleckig. = Kabinetsbibliothek der vorzüglichsten Romane des Auslandes.

        Childe Harold's Pilgrimage - Canto III - bound with - Canto IV

      London: by Thomas Davison for John Murray, 1816/1818, 1816. FIRST EDITION SIGNED. 1 vol., signed by Byron as "Noel Byron" to top of title-page, being the first variant of the second issue with capital L of Lettre directly beneath lui of celui-la on title page and page 67 with the word Eagle (as opposed to Falcon in the second variant), half title present and bound with the notes and the poem A Very Mournful Ballad on the Siege and Conquest of Alhama. Bound in contemporary full tan calf, covers ruled and paneled in gilt and blind, expertly rebacked to style. Accompanied with a letter signed by Dr. Peter Beal of Sotheby's, on Sotheby's letterhead dated 13th December 1991, and relating to Lot 28 in the Sotheby's auction of 12th December 1991, and stating "We are happy to confirm our definite opinion that two of the volumes in this lot were signed by Lord Byron, using the form of his name ("Noel Byron") he adopted after the death of his mother-in-law in January 1822. Byron's signature was subject to variation, depending in part upon the speed with which he wrote, but close comparison with a number of facsimile examples leaves no doubt in our mind that his salient characteristics are present and that there is no indication of forgery".

        Alastor; or, the Spirit of Solitude: and Other Poems.

      London: Printed for Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy, and Carpenter and Son: By S. Hamilton, Weybridge 1816 vi, [1], [1 blank], 101, [3 blank] pp. - Wasserzeichen: \"J Whatman | 1812\". Dunkelrotes Maroquin um 1890, der Rücken mit fünf erhabenen Bünden, auf zweitem und drittem Feld goldgeprägt Verfasser und Titel, unten die Jahreszahl, die anderen mit goldgeprägten Rahmen aus vier Linien, Small octavo. ca. 165 x 102 mm. (Einband am Vordergelenk und den Ecken leicht berieben, Rücken leicht aufgehellt, kleine Flecken auf den Deckeln nahe den Gelenken. Innen vorzüglich erhalten.) Burgundy morocco, the covers with a gilt panel composed of eight fillets, elevated at the corners. The spine with five raised bands divided into six panels, lettered in the second and third and dated at the foot, the other panels with gilt compartments, the edges of the boards and turn-ins tooled with gilt fillets, floral decorated endleaves, top edge gilt, the others untrimmed. Bound ca.1890 by Ramage and signed in gilt on the front turn-in. Contained within a cloth slipcase with leather opening.John Ramage was born in London in 1836. When Ramage came out of his apprenticeship in 1856, he took the unusual step for an English binder of going to Paris and working under Lortic, one of the leading French binders of the day. In 1860 Ramage returned to Britain and purchased the Edinburgh business of Alexander Banks Jnr, stating in the 1861 census returns that he employed 8 men, 3 boys, 6 women and 1 girl. Three years later he moved his business to London, where there was more work. He moved to larger premises in Warwick Lane in 1870, and from there he went to Warwick Square and in 1891 to Creed Lane. He died in 1911. One of 250 copies. Printed on wove paper with the watermark \"J Whatman | 1812\", i.e. William Balston (1759-1849), Whatman`s successor.Shelley`s first mature work, which drew from Leigh Hunt, the first public recognition of Shelley`s gifts as \"a very striking and original thinker\". Partly inspired by a boat trip up the Thames taken by Shelley, Mary, Peacock and Charles Clairmont and partly by Shelley`s complex reaction to Wordsworth, the poem, \"in its brooding introspection, is a world away from the explicit radicalism of Queen Mab. Alastor is at some level an elegy for Shelley`s failed marriage with Harriet\" (ODNB). The volume also contains `The Daemon of the World`, a revised version of the first two cantos of `Queen Mab`, along with another revised section (entitled `Superstition`) from canto 6. Among the short poems are \"Mutability,\" \"To Wordsworth,\" and \"A Summer-Evening Church-Yard,\" which was inspired by a visit to Lechlade, a few miles down the road from Kempsford.\"Shelley printed 250 copies of the volume at his own expense at Hamiton`s, and offered the publication to John Murray, who declined it. The book was ultimately published by Carpenter & Son, and Baldwin & Co. (see Shelley`s letter to John Murray, January 16, 1816, and to Carpenter & Son, February 6, 1816. Peacock says that when Shelley was at a loss for a title for his Poem, `I proposed that which he adopted. The Greek word Alástôr is an evil genius, kakodaímôn; though the sense of the two words is somewhat different, it is the Phane s Alástôr ê kakòs daímôn pothén, of Aeschylos. The Poem treated the Spirit of Solitude as a spirit of evil.`\" (Roger Ingpen & Walter E. Peck: The Complete Works of Percy Bysshe Shelley, Volume I, Poems, p. 420.)The book was apparently rare as early as 1824: Mary Shelley, in her preface to Posthumous Poems, explained, \"I have added a reprint of `Alastor, or the Spirit of Solitude`: the difficulty with which a copy can be obtained is the cause of its republication.\" - Erste Ausgabe, eins von nur 250 Exemplaren. Die Deckel mit breiten Randrahmen aus acht goldgeprägten Linien, die an den Ecken ausgestellt sind. Steh- und Innenkantenvergoldung, handgestochene zweifarbige Kapitale, Kopfgoldschnitt, vorn und unten unbeschnitten. Signiert auf dem vorderen Ledereinschlag unten: \"Bound by Ramage, London\".

        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

      Imprimerie Impériale, Paris 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. [Attributes: First Edition]

The atlas is accompanied by a lovely first edition set of the text of Thompson?Äôs translation and expansion of Alcedo?Äôs classic work on the Americas.?ÄúAaron Arrowsmith, Hydrographer to the King of England and Geographer to the Prince of Wales, was the most influential and espected map publisher of the first quarter of the nineteenth century.His role in cartographic production was to gather the best information available from a wide variety of sources, weigh the relative merits of conflicting data, and compile from this the most accurate depiction possible of an area. Arrowsmith accomplished this synthesis better than any other commercial map maker of his day and, as a result, his maps were the most sought after and highly prized on three continents?Äù (Martin and Martin).Arrowsmith specialized in large multi-sheet maps. These were generally separately issued and are now very scarce. His five great wall maps of the Americas were particularly well received and became ?Äúfoundation or prototype maps of the area and were extensively copied by other publishers?Äù (Tooley). These five wall maps were of North America (first published in 1795), the United States (1796), the West Indies (1803), Mexico (1810), and South America (1810). They were generally republished many times, as new information became available. Thomas Jefferson considered the 1803 edition the best map of the continent in print at the time, and it was used extensively in planning Lewis and Clark?Äôs expedition (1805-06). Likewise, the 1814 edition of North America (offered here) was the first map to make use of Lewis and Clark?Äôs map of the same year, and the first to combine Lewis and Clark and Zebulon Pike?Äôs data onto one map.The present atlas is an early version with the following maps:1) A Map Exhibiting all the New Discoveries in the Interior Parts of North America.A. Arrowsmith.January 1st 1795 Additions to 1811 Additions to June 1814. 2) A Map of the United States of America Drawn from a number of Critical Researches By A. Arrowsmith.Jan 1st 1796.
