        [Melon] Scarlet Flesh Rock

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1816. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. In good condition. Image size: 16 x 12 3/4 inches. A fine image from Brookshaw's masterpiece: 'Pomona Britannica; or, A Collection of the Most Esteemed Fruits'. George Brookshaw's 'Pomona Britannica' is the finest work on fruit and flowers ever produced. Its breathtaking images display a level of technical virtuosity and beauty that distinguish this magnificent work as a true work of art. As a retired cabinetmaker, Brookshaw produced his seminal botanical study late in his career, at first publishing it in parts and then as a complete edition in 1812. The fact that this outstanding work took ten years to complete is evident in the quality of its images and the care with which Brookshaw executed each individual picture. 'Pomona Britannica' was produced as a visual record of the best available varieties of fruit in an attempt to encourage gardeners to experiment with growing fruit, and illustrates examples found in the Royal gardens at Hampton Court, Kensington Gardens, and the private gardens of the Prince of Wales in Blackheath. 'Pomona Britannica' differs from other botanical works in its dark aquatinted backgrounds and its stylized compositions. By using aquatint to create a contrasting background, Brookshaw manages to produce a truly dramatic effect. His use of stylized composition distinguishes his pictures from the dry scientific illustrations found in other botanical studies and creates an exceptionally beautiful visual experience. 'Pomona Britannica' is not only a didactic study, it is a masterpiece of illustration in which every picture is a testament to the artist's talent and ingenuity. Cf. Dunthorne 50; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p. 81; cf. Nissen BBI 244; cf. Sandra Raphael An Oak Spring Pomona 40a.

        Autograph letter signed ("Hoffmann").

      Berlin, 21. VII. 1816. - 8vo. 1 p. To his publisher Georg Reimer, about his tale "Das Sanktus", apologizing for the delay in sending this to him, stating that his friend Hitzig can testify to the fact that in the last three months an unusual mass of time-consuming work has made it impossible for him to think about anything else ("[.] Freund Hitzig kann es bezeugen, wie seit drey Monathen ein ungewöhnlicher Andrang von zeitraubender [.] Arbeit es mir als unmöglich gemacht hat, an etwas anderes zu denken [.]"). Hoffmann's famous tale "Das Sanctus" was published in the first volume of "Nachstücke" (1816). - With two manuscript annotations to verso, one possibly by the recipient. Overall browning with some damp-staining affecting text.

        Quelques rapports de Frédéric Guillaume III Roi de Prusse et de Buonaparte avec A. H. Dampmartin.

      Paris 1816 - In-8 de (4)-607 pp., couvertes d'une écriture moyenne et lisible (environ 20 lignes par page), texte réglé, maroquin cerise à long grain, dos à nerfs orné de filets, pointillés, guirlandes et fleurons dorés, encadrement de simple filet et guirlande dorés sur les plats, tortillon doré sur les coupes, tranches dorées, dentelle intérieure (Thouvenin). Manuscrit inédit sur la Prusse (1797) et la France (1813). Le titre de ce manuscrit de Dampmartin, qui forme comme une section de ses Mémoires, distribués en plusieurs titres, est relativement trompeur si l'on pense que l'auteur a entretenu des relations suivies avec les deux Souverains cités : si en effet, réfugié à Berlin pendant sa période d'émigration, Dampmartin se vit confier le 1er avril 1797 l'éducation d'un des fils que Frédéric-Guillaume II avait eu de sa maîtresse la fameuse comtesse de Lichtenau (Wilhelmine Enke, 1753-1820), ses contacts avec l'héritier légitime du trône en furent, par le fait même, considérablement restreints ; quant à Napoléon, selon le rapport même de Dampmartin dans son Avertissement, il ne put jamais se déprendre à son égard d'une forte méfiance qui tenait essentiellement à la qualité d'ancien émigré de Dampmartin, et, de fait, la carrière subalterne et peu valorisante qu'il mena sous l'Empire, vient a posteriori confirmer la faible opinion du souverain. Il reste donc que, sous ce titre assez trompeur, ont été réunis plusieurs fragments intéressants qui concernent soit la Prusse des héritiers du Grand Frédéric, soit l'attitude de Napoléon pendant l'année cruciale 1813 : Dans l'intimité du Roi de Prusse. I. Sur la Prusse, l'on trouvera successivement : 1) Les morceaux retranchés par la censure de l'ouvrage de Dampmartin intitulé "Quelques traits de la vie privée de Frédéric-Guillaume II", paru en 1811 et pour lequel on peut créditer l'auteur de renseignements de première main (pp. 11-60). 2) Un passage sur Frédéric-Guillaume II retiré par la même censure de l'ouvrage de Dieudonné Thiébault ("Souvenirs de vingt ans"), dont Dampmartin procura la troisième édition en 1813 (pp. 61-65). 3) Une longue lettre adressée à une Rosalie Bouchon d'Uzès, à laquelle Dampmartin avait demandé de relire son manuscrit sur Frédéric-Guillaume II : elle contient des anecdotes et détails complémentaires pour cet ouvrage (pp. 66-228). Au service de Napoléon en 1813. II. Mais la partie la plus intéressante (et la plus longue) concerne la mission que Napoléon, partant le 15 avril 1813 de Saint-Cloud pour entrer en campagne, lui avait confiée par l'intermédiaire de Méneval : elle consistait à envoyer chaque jour un bulletin de notes sur l'esprit et les dispositions de la société parisienne, les nouvelles littéraires et surtout les premières représentations théâtrales (la surveillance de la scène dramatique, encore très sensible aux oscillations politiques et sociales, était primordiale en temps de crise). Dans sa présentation, Dampmartin assure avoir résisté jusqu'au bout à cette besogne d'"espionage" et n'avoir cédé qu'aux ordres formels de Méneval (il fallait bien, il écrivait sous la Restauration). Il n'empêche qu'il s'exécuta, et qu'il livre ensuite le texte des bulletins quotidiens, du moins ceux qui auraient survécu à une maladresse de son valet : commençant par celui du 6 juillet 1813, il donne les notes quasi quotidiennes jusqu'à celle du 8 novembre suivant, ce qui fait beaucoup pour quelques feuillets prétendûment arrachés aux flammes (pp. 252-579). Le 9 novembre 1813, le retour de Napoléon à Saint-Cloud, après la catastrophique campagne de Saxe, rendait inutile la continuation de la correspondance, mais l'auteur, flatté le lendemain par un gracieux accueil de cour de la part du Souverain, en profita pour solliciter, appuyé de Méneval, la Légion d'Honneur. Restent ces compte-rendus littéraires et théâtraux sur presque une demi-année, intéressant témoignages du régime de surveillance propre à l'Empire, et qui ne semblent pas avoir été conservés par ailleurs.

        MAXVORSTADT, MÜNCHEN: MANUSKRIPTPLAN DER SCHÖNFELD STRASSE MIT DEM HAUS DES GENERALS UND ERSTEN BAYERISCHEN KRIEGSMINISTER JOHANN NEPOMUK GRAF VON TRIVA.

      - Situationsplan der Bebauung zwischen der Schwabinger Chaussee und dem Englischen Garten, vom Anfang des 19. Jahrhunderts, kurz vor dem Ausbau der Ludwigstraße durch Leo von Klenze und Friedrich Gärtner zur Prachtstraße und Anbindung der nördlich gelegenen Maxvorstadt (1816-27). Der aquarellierte Manuskriptplan zeigt Grundstücke zwischen der alten Schwabinger Chaussee und dem Englischen Garten, heute der Ludwigstrasse, Schönfeld Strasse, Hahnstrasse und Von-der-Tann-Strasse, nord vom Hofgarten. Aufnehmer und Zeichner des Plans war der Steuerzentralbaumeisters und Ingenieur-Hauptmann Max Lebschée (gestorben 1816, Signatur rechts unten), eines Onkels väterlicherseits des Münchner Architektur- und Landschaftsmalers Carl August Lebschée. Im Zentrum ist das neue Wohnhaus des Generals und ersten bayerischen Kriegsministers (ab 1814) Johann Nepomuk Graf von Triva (1755-1827, „Wohnhaus des Herrn Generalen von Triva"). Eingezeichnet sind auch der geometrisch angelegte Garten des Anwesens sowie die private Zufahrt von der „Chaussee" (Ludwigstrasse) und zwei kleinere Zufahrten von dem Norden und Süden. Durch die Nennung Trivas wird eine annähernde Datierung des Plans möglich, der zwischen 1811, dem Jahr der Beförderung Trivas zum General der Atellerie (1. Januar 1811), und 1816, dem Todesjahr Lebschées und dem Beginn des Ausbaus der Ludwigstraße, entstanden sein muss. Das Bayerische Kriegsministerium wurde am 27. März 1808 von König Maximilian I. als Ministerium für das Kriegswesen gegründet, Kriegsminister war bis 1814 der König selbst. Die Manuskriptkarte wurde vermutlich als eine Katasterkarte in der Zeit der Erbauung des Hauses Trivas gemacht. Heute befindet sich im Haus Trivas das Restaurant Halali. Die Nord- und Südzufahrt wurden erweitert in die Hahnstrasse.

        The Colonial policy of Great Britain, Considered With Relation To Her North American Provinces, And West India Possessions; Wherein The Dangerous Tendency Of American Competition Is Developed, And The Necessity Of Recommencing A Colonial System On A Vigorous And Extensive Scale, Exhibited And Defended; With Plans For The Promotion Of Emigration, And Strictures On The Treaty Of Ghent. By A British Traveller

      Philadelphia: M. Carey, 1816. First American edition. 24ads, xxxiv, 227, [blank]pp. 8vo. Original paperbacked blue boards, original label to spine, chipped and lightly soiled, ms ownership inscription to front free endpaper of David Phipps, Jr., annotations in pencil to rare free endpaper and rear pastedown. First American edition. 24ads, xxxiv, 227, [blank]pp. 8vo. Published in the wake of the War of 1812, the work is highly critical of America. The author states: "to show the erroneous judgment which Great Britain has entertained of America, to disclose the deadly hatred, the rooted antipathy, the active and insatiable ambition of the latter, to prove that she must be watched with a jealous eye, and vigilant precaution exercised to prevent an insidious and aspiring nation from giving her vital interests a mortal blow" (p. xxxi). It is especially critical regarding slavery though goes on to discuss topics such as North American trade (fisheries, cattle etc), securing the Canadian border and the importance of the Caribbean colonies. Published in the same year as the first English edition, but due its sentiment probably the more desirable. Sabin 14695; Shaw & Shoemaker 37301; cf Goldsmiths', 2146; cf Kress, B.6669; cf Lande 145

        South East View of York

      1816. Colour printed aquatint with hand-finishing. Printed on wove paper. In good condition with the exception of being trimmed within the plate mark on all sides. Bottom margin is missing publication line. Skilfully mended tear in bottom right corner. Some traces of minor surface soiling in margins. Image size: 12 5/8 x 19 2/8 inches. This exquisite view of the south prospect of York was drawn by the celebrated Yorkshire painter Henry Cave, and engraved by the acclaimed aquatinter Robert Havell. Cave was an accomplished painter and engraver who worked extensively on Yorkshire subjects. He studied under his father William Cave, an engraver of some repute, and made a name for himself as an accomplished topographical painter. He was admitted as a Freeman of York in 1801, and described on the roll as an engraver. He exhibited at the Royal Academy and the British Institution between 1814 and 1825, and was hailed as one of Yorkshire's premier talents. In 1813 Ackermann published "The Antiquities of York," which was richly illustrated with plates drawn and etched by Cave. This pleasant view follows the 17th century Dutch tradition of giving somewhat greater space to the sky than to the earth, thus providing a sense of potential and freedom. Born into a family of talented artists, the painter, engraver, and publisher Robert Havell worked in his family's London-based engraving firm for several years with his father, the topographical and architectural engraver and publisher, Daniel Havell, and his cousin, the painter William Havell. With his son he later established a successful business on Oxford Street that produced a number of illustrations for various travel and topographical publications as well as several series of topographical and architectural aquatint engravings including Picturesque Views on the River Thames (1812) and Views of the Public Buildings and Bridges in London and its Environs (1820-1). The father-son partnership lasted until 1828, at which time Robert Jr. immigrated to America.

        Consecutive Run of the First Fourteen Session Laws of the General Assembly of the State of Ohio, 1803 - 1816]

      Chillicothe and Zanesville 1816 - Fourteen volumes, publication details and pagination provided in the listing below. Uniform half calf and marbled boards, leather labels. Small ink library stamps and embossed blind-stamps and occasional ink ownership inscriptions on titlepages. Some contemporary ink marginalia, a handful of leaves trimmed close, a few small tape repairs or reinforcements. A significant run of the laws of the State of Ohio from the first session of the General Assembly to the fourteenth of 1816, covering the crucial years of 1812-15 when Ohio was the Western theater of the War of 1812. The impact of the war can be seen right away in the 1812 session laws: the very first act provides "blankets for the Ohio militia, now in the service of the United States." Later in this session, the assembly passed an act "for the encouragement of Volunteers in the North Western Army of the United States" after the "lamentable disaster, which has happened to that part of the North Western Army of the United States, lately under the command of Gen. James Winchester." The Army of the Northwest was a unit of the American army formed at the outset of the War of 1812 and charged with control of the state of Ohio, the Indiana Territory, Michigan Territory, and Illinois Territory. The "lamentable disaster" refers to the Battle of Frenchtown, fought near the River Raisin in Monroe, Michigan, which was a massive loss for the American army in the War of 1812. The day after the battle ended, British troops and Native Americans massacred wounded soldiers in what became known as the River Raisin Massacre, additionally killing many more troops in a subsequent forced march to Fort Malden. Though Frenchtown resulted in more casualties than any other battle during the War of 1812, it became a rallying cry for the American army. In addition to these acts, the 1812 laws include several resolutions related to war activities within the state, including resolutions authorizing the governor to procure arms, one regarding "the conduct of the corps of volunteers from this state, during and previous to the late campaign, under the command of general Hull," and a resolution requesting that the services of the Ohio militia be paid by the United States. The resolution regarding Gen. Hull refers to another disastrous event for the American effort earlier in the war, the Siege of Detroit, where the American army surrendered Fort Detroit to the British in August 1812. Here, the resolution commends the Ohio corps of volunteers "for the patriotism, bravery and general good conduct, which they evinced, during their late arduous and disastrous expedition." A couple of years later, the assembly passed a resolution to thank Andrew Jackson, his officers, and his men, for their "gallant defence of New Orleans," the great American land victory of the war. Such a consecutive run of session laws for Ohio is unprecedented in the market, with only an occasional single volume coming up for sale. Most of the session laws were printed by various printers in Chillicothe, but the ninth and tenth General Assemblies were held at, and the session laws printed in, Zanesville. All are rare. A marvelous run of early Ohio state laws. The imprints included here are as follows: 1) Acts of the State of Ohio: First Session of the General Assembly, Held under the Constitution of the State, A. D. One Thousand Eight Hundred and Three. Chillicothe: N. Willis, 1803. 164pp. Ohio Imprints 35; Sabin 56869; Wilkie 47. 2) Acts of the State of Ohio: Second Session of the General Assembly, Held under the Constitution of the State, A. D.

        THE HISTORY OF VIRGINIA, FROM ITS FIRST SETTLEMENT TO THE PRESENT DAY

      Petersburg, Va, 1816. Early 20th-century three-quarter morocco and green cloth, gilt, t.e.g., by Stikeman. Moderate edge wear, worn joints, spines sunned. Bookplate on front and rear pastedown. Later gift inscription from Girardin's great- grand daughter to front flyleaf of fourth volume, newspaper clipping pasted to front free endpaper. Contemporary ownership signature to first page of Preface and title page of third volume. Two minor, marginal paper repairs to the first volume. Foxing throughout, lightly tanned. Overall very good. An important history of Virginia, here present with the very rare fourth volume. That volume, issued years after the rest of the set, was largely destroyed by fire and only a few copies have survived. The author, well known as a dramatist, was an Irish emigrant and enthusiastic Jeffersonian. After his death in a duel in 1808, the fourth volume was written by Skelton Jones and Louis Girardin, supposedly with the aid of Thomas Jefferson, to whom it is dedicated. That volume covers 1775 to 1781. Jefferson also assisted Burk in the research for the second and third volumes by lending him manuscripts, newspapers, and other materials, and Burk quotes Jefferson's NOTES ON THE STATE OF VIRGINIA... throughout his HISTORY... (see Sowerby for details). "The lengthy appendices are of the highest historical importance" - Eberstadt.

        Curtis's Botanical Magazine... Vol. XLIII. Being the First of the New Series

      London: printed by Stephen Couchman, published by Sherwood, Neely, & Jones, 1816. Volume 43 only, octavo. (9 1/8 x 5 5/8 inches). 90 hand-coloured engraved plates (numbered from 1771-1831, 1832A, 1832B, 1833-1859, plates #1799, #1808, #1819 , #1828, #1834, #1838, and #1851are folding),, by Swan, and others. Contemporary red half morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, spine gilt A fine representative sample volume from the oldest illustrated botanical periodical still in production. "The reputation of the Magazine has always resided in the accuracy of its portrayal of plants. This pictorial record of garden and greenhouse plants from the temperate and tropical regions of the world has no rival.." (Desmond p.7) William Curtis had witnessed from personal experience that his clients refused to buy folio pictures of unassuming plants (vide. his Flora Londinensis) but he felt that they would subscribe to an octavo work which pictured the showy plants that filled their gardens: from this premise was born the Botanical Magazine in February 1787. The work was immediately successful, was published throughout the 19th and 20th centuries and is still produced to this day. The main glory of the Botanical Magazine has always been the coloured plates. Many of the greatest British botanical illustrators of the last two hundred years have had worked published in this periodical: the majority of the earliest plates are by Sydenham Edwards; other artists who followed in his footsteps include James Sowerby, John Curtis, William Jackson Hooker and, for much of the second half of the 19th century, Walter Hood Fitch. In the 20th century the great tradition was continued by Lilian Snelling, Margaret Stones and others.

        Flora Americae Septentrionalis; or, A Systematic Arrangement and Description of the Plants of North America. Containing, besides what may have been described by preceding authors, many new and rare species, collected during twelve years travels and residence in that country ... Second Edition

      London: printed for James Black & Son, 1816. 2 volumes, octavo. (8 5/8 x 5 3/8 inches). 6pp. advertisements at the back of Vol. 1, 24 hand-coloured stipple-engraved plates (1 plate signed as being by W, Hooker after Pursh, a second signed as by and after Hooker, the others unsigned). Publisher's purple cord-grained cloth, letterpress paper label to each spine Provenance: C. Allen (early pencilled signature) A fine copy of the rare second edition of the highly-desirable coloured issue of the first botanical record of the Lewis and Clark expedition. A landmark work in early American botany, the first to publish the findings of the Lewis and Clark expedition, and a book which has been styled by one botanical historian as "amazingly brilliant." Born in Grossenhain in Saxony, Pursh came to America in 1799. Aided by Benjamin Smith Barton he made two memorable journeys of botanical exploration in 1806 and 1807. On his return from the second journey in 1807, he took over the running of David Hosack's Elgin Botanic Garden in New York. He remained in the United States until 1811, when he sailed for England in an attempt to arrange for the publication of the present work. In 1806 Pursh had met Meriwether Lewis, who gave him a collection of dried plants gathered on the expedition, "in order to describe and figure those I thought new, for the purpose of inserting them in his travels, which he was then engaging for the press." It is unclear why Lewis chose to turn the specimens over to Pursh. He may have intended that they go to Barton, for whom Pursh then worked. In any case, the death of Lewis and the delay in publication of the account of the expedition led Pursh to incorporate the Lewis and Clark material into his own work, where the material from the expedition and the locations where Lewis gathered it are carefully noted, with specimens identified as "in Herb. Lewis." Pursh's work is important for eastern botany as well, but its greatest contribution is the material relating to Lewis and Clark, and the publication of the first extensive observations on the botany along the route of their expedition. A fascinating feature of the work is the narrative preface in which Pursh gives some detail of his life and travels in the Americas, as well as mentioning the botanists he encountered and giving a description of the sources he consulted in England after his arrival in 1811. Pursh returned to North America and died in Montreal in 1820. For each plant Pursh gives a brief description, followed by a note as to who first described the plant, followed by notes gathered from other works. Many of the entries then conclude with Pursh's own interesting comments: "The Red Cedar, so useful and durable a wood, for whose history refer to Michaux's work so often quoted, is as yet in great abundance in most parts of the country; but its extermination is going on so rapidly, that future inhabitants will be very much at a loss, and will feel the want of it when it is too late" (vol.II, p.647).

        A NARRATIVE OF FIVE YOUTH FROM THE SANDWICH ISLANDS, NOW RECEIVING AN EDUCATION IN THIS COUNTRY. PUBLISHED BY ORDER OF THE AGENTS APPOINTED TO ESTABLISH A SCHOOL FOR HEATHEN YOUTH

      New York, 1816. Modern half calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, leather label. Minor foxing and toning. Very good plus. A very rare pamphlet which was directly responsible for accelerating the establishment of a mission school in Hawaii, an important step in drawing the Hawaiian Islands into the orbit of the United States. In 1809 a New Haven- based sea captain brought two Hawaiian youths, [Henry] Obookiah and [Thomas] Hopoo, to New Haven to educate them. These two were soon followed by three others, including Prince Tamoree, the son of the Hawaiian king. The presence of the young men and their educational development greatly impressed people throughout the United States. The text gives biographies of the youths and discusses their activities and experiences in America, as well as printing letters written by them. The final pages discuss the establishment of the Foreign Mission School in Hawaii, including a proposed constitution of the school and a discussion of the general importance of Christian education. "This publication, which aroused all New England to the plight of the natives 'suffering in ignorance of Christianity,' was directly responsible for public support of the Foreign Mission School and ultimately the beginning of the movement that sent missionaries to Hawaii in 1819" - Forbes. A rare and desirable piece of Hawaiiana.

        A VOYAGE ROUND THE WORLD, FROM 1806 TO 1812; IN WHICH JAPAN, KAMSCHATKA, THE ALEUTIAN ISLANDS, AND THE SANDWICH ISLANDS, WERE VISITED INCLUDING A NARRATIVE OF THE AUTHOR'S SHIPWRECK ON THE ISLAND OF SANNACK, AND HIS SUBSEQUENT WRECK IN THE SHIP'S LONG BOAT WITH AN ACCOUNT OF THE PRESENT STATE OF THE SANDWICH ISLANDS, AND A VOCABULARY OF THEIR LANGUAGE

      Edinburgh, 1816. Folding frontispiece map. Modern three-quarter calf and marbled boards. Very minor scattered foxing, but generally quite clean internally. Very good. The scarce first edition of this valuable account of Campbell's voyage to Japan and China, with much useful information on Hawaii and Alaska. While in China, Campbell joined the crew of the American ship Eclipse, sailing out of Boston and captained by Joseph O'Cain (called "O'Kean" in the text here). He departed China and went on to Japan and Kamchatka, and thence to Alaska, where the Eclipse was shipwrecked in 1807. Campbell gives an important and early description of Alaska. He wintered at the Russian base at Kodiak in 1808, where he met Baranov, who happened to be there at the time, and gives a valuable description of life on Kodiak. After his shipwreck on Kodiak, both of Campbell's feet froze, and they were eventually amputated. After the amputation Campbell was sent to Hawaii to rehabilitate and became friendly with King Kamehameha I, for whom he made sails. "Campbell's account of his stay in Hawaii...is of the greatest importance, being the first narrative from the viewpoint of a resident rather than as a visitor....The author lived among the chiefs and then with Isaac Davis, and he identifies some of the earliest foreign residents of the islands, a number of whom were Botany Bay men. His keen firsthand observations on the social structure and agricultural practices of Hawaiians are of great importance" - Forbes. A twenty-five-page appendix contains a Hawaiian vocabulary, and an additional three pages contain Hawaiian phrases useful to seamen. The map is a rather detailed chart of the Northwest Coast, showing the "Track of the Eclipse's Long Boat from Sannack to Kodiak 1807." After his time in Hawaii, Campbell spent two years in various businesses in Rio de Janeiro, also discussed in this narrative. This account of his adventures, edited by James Smith, was published in an attempt to benefit Campbell.

Leg. coeva in piena pelle. La presente edizione, uniformemente legata, potrebbe essere una miscellanea di diverse edizioni del celebre portolano tascabile del Roux, a partire dal 1804 fino al 1849. Le prime 163 tavole numerate sono infatti certamente ad opera di Joseph Roux, di cui si sa che apparteneva a una famiglia di idrografi e conduceva una tipografia specializzata in Marsiglia. Nel 1764 Roux aveva pubblicato un album intitolato "Recueil des principaux plans des ports et rades de la Mer Méditerranée...", comprensivo di 121 tavole di rade e piani di porti. L?opera incontrò largo favore, e fu ristampata nel 1799 da Yves Gravier, che diede alle stampe anche le edizioni successive. L?album ebbe riedizioni sino al 1848. La presente edizione include carte, (dalla 164 alla 179) scritte in inglese, di Ayrouard (firmate quelle di Portofino, Savona e S. Fiorenzo; attribuibili di Portovenere, Porto Ercole, Porto Longone); di Rizzi Zannoni (firmate quelle di Salerno, Policastro, S.

        British Jungermanniae: Being a History and Description, with colored Figures, of each Species of the Genus, and Microscopical Analyses of the Parts

      Published by Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown.; and J. Harding, London 1816 - Folio (470 x 294 mm). Contemporary Russian leather with gilt denteles and border on boards; new spine with raised bands; tooling in panels gilt as is title, author and date; extremities abraded. Edges of covers and corners rubbed and some loss. Decorative tooling in gilt present on inside of boards. Original marble end papers. Collation: [i-xxvii], [1]- 20pp., + plates 1-84, supplement plates 1-4 [2-Index] pp. There two or more pages of text for each plate with Supplement with preceding text pages grouped together. h. Some spotting to preliminary blanks & half-title. There is also some minor light gray spotting on one plate. Plate number I in supplement has small brown off setting from spot on facing page. This is a very scarce large paper copy in fine decorative binding with excellent provenance. This study was issued in parts between 1812 and 1816 (publication date on title page). Plates were from drawings by Hooker and engraved by W. H. E. Edwards. Provenance: This is one of 10 large paper copies inscribed to Dawson Turner. Turner was Hooker's father-in-law. Dawson Turner has signed his name on the title page followed by a quote in Latin. Turner is noted for his extensive studies on the red algae, Fuci, of Britain. Hooker married Turner's eldest daughter Maria Sarah in 1815, at a time when Hooker was still working on the present study. In fact, it took Hooker 10 years to prepare this study of cryptogamic plants. Hooker's son Joseph describes this as his father's most beautiful work in point of drawing, analyses and engraving of the plates.(Turrill, J.D. Hooker). This classification and illustration of various species of the Jungermmaniae reflects the keen interest of British scientists to bring order to the biological world, particularly plants, in the British Isles. Hooker provides a detailed historical introduction to the family noting that "the name of Jungermannia was first adopted; a name given by Ruppius [1616], to perpetuate the memory of Louis Jungermann, a German botanist, who was born in 1572, and died in 1653, after having published a catalogue of plants of the neighborhood of Altorf, and a work entitled Cornucopia Florae Giessensis. He likewise gave considerable assistance to Besler, in his Hortus Eystettensis." Following the section on History, Hooker describes the different parts and reproduction of a Jungermannia in great detail. The Introduction ends with a binomial classification key for the family, Jungermanniae and a synopsis, both in Latin. (BMNH, II p.870; Brunet, III p.300; Cowan & Stafleu, 2987; D.

Old ownership signature on front paste down. Scarce first edition of this pioneering work to trace the common origin of the grammatical forms of Sanskrit, Greek, Latin and German. Concentrating on a historical analysis of the verb, he furnished the first trustworthy materials for a history of the languages compared. "He thereby established the science of comparative linguistics [.] Bopp's importance lies in the fact that he was no mere grammarian but considered philology to be an essential part of the history of civilization: out of their vocabulary he drew an accurate picture of the material and intellectual life of the earliest Indo-European people" (PMM).

Vater 180; Brunet I, 1109; Graesse I, 493; Zenker II, 2810; PMM 275. - Seltenes und wichtiges Erstlingswerk des Begründers der historisch-vergleichenden indogermanischen Sprachwissenschaft, Franz Bopp (1791-1867). In vorliegendem Werk erbringt Bopp anhand der Verbalstrukturen der im Titel angeführten Sprachen den methodischen Beweis für ihre genetische Verwandtschaft, die der englische Orientalist William Jones zuerst postuliert hatte. Später erweiterte er den Kreis der indogermanischen Sprachen um das Slawische, Litauische, Albanische und Armenische. Wilhelm von Humboldt erlernte bei Bopp Sanskrit, späterhin wurde er sein akademischer Förderer. Zum 50. Jahrestag des Erscheinens dieses Werkes und des damit verknüpften Beginns der Wissenschaft der Vergleichenden Sprachforschung wurde 1866 unter Humboldts Ägide die Bopp-Stiftung gegründet. - Etwas berieben, Decken mit Knickspuren. Titel gestempelt und mit handschriftl. Besitzeintrag. Tls braunfleckig.

        A 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, 1816. 288 pp. b/w folding map First edition. Campbell was a Scotsman who sailed to China on an East India Company ship, then joined an American vessel which took him to Japan, Kamchatka and Alaska. His ship was wrecked off the coast there and he wintered in a Russian settlement at Kodiak. In the course of these tribulations both his feet froze and were amputated. After his stay in Kodiak he sailed to Hawaii. There, he was befriended by King Kamehameha I, and became the Royal sailmaker. Campbell gives detailed accounts of all his ports and adventures, including his later career as an innkeeper and a butcher in Rio Janeiro. Various bibliographies testify to the importance of his narrative. ?"Of great value is his description of the Hawaiian Islands.?" -- Hill 245. ?"Campbell?'s description of Kodiak is particularly valuable.?" -- Lada Mocarski 71. ?"He identifies some of the earliest foreign residents of the islands, a number of whom were Botany Bay men. His keen firsthand observations on the social structure and agricultural practices of Hawaiians are of great importance?" -- Forbes, 461. See also Hunnewell p. 29. Judd 30. Private library stamp at bottom of title page. A very nice copy in antique style half calf with original label preserved.
