        ARMATA, A Fragment; Together with THE SECOND PART OF ARMATA

      London: John Murray 1817. First edition of both parts, each an INSCRIBED PRESENTATION COPY. Two volumes bound in one. Contemporary full red morocco gilt. All edges gilt. A very good copy, the attractive binding with gilt borders and titles, skillfully repaired to the spine tips. Previous owner?'s bookplate to the reverse of the front free endpaper with some spotting and darkening to the margins of early pages. Volume one inscribed at the head of the title page ?"To Miss Emily Calcraft / with the author?'s best regards?", an ink inscription ?"By Lord Erskine?" partially scratched out from beneath the printed title. Two pages with emmendations in the margins. Volume two inscribed at the head of the title page ?"To Miss Emily Calcraft / from the author?" and with notes to the margins of three pages. At the rear, over six pages in manuscript are an appendix and notes by the author. No appendix was printed in the first or second edition, and we have not seen a third edition but when comparing the manuscript with that of the Appendix published in the fourth edition there are minor mainly editorial differences. Scarce in first edition, rare in presentation state. The first work of science fiction by a Scottish author, Armata is also considered to be the first novel with a parallel (twin) Earth concept.

        Medal for the Voyage of the Uranie

      Paris: Puymaurin & Andrieu, 1817. Bronze medal, 41 mm, fine. Obverse: profile portrait of Louis XVIII. Reverse: "Hémisphère Austral. Physique Astronomie. La Corvette l'Uranie Mr. Ls. de Freycinet Commandt... S.A.R.M. Le Duc d'Angoulême, Amiral de France...." Medal for the departure of Freycinet on the Uranie. An excellent bronze example of the medal struck to commemorate the sailing of the Uranie for Australia and the Pacific in 1817 under Freycinet.The Uranie landed at Shark Bay on the West Coast of Australia, on 12 September 1818, where an observatory was set up. After visiting Timor and the Sandwich Islands they reached Port Jackson in November 1818. They left on Boxing Day that year on a course for Cape Horn but on 13 February 1820 the ship was wrecked off the Falkland Islands. However all the crew and most of the records of the voyage and natural history specimens were saved and the voyage was completed on the Physicienne.The voyage was organised by the French government to make observations on geography, magnetism and meteorology, and became noteworthy for its natural history discoveries. This scientific bent is reflected in the detailed lettering on the obverse, which has the main caption 'Hemisphere Austral. Physique Astronomie', and also notes that Freycinet's voyage was commissioned by the two most important French naval figures of his day, Louis-Antoine d'Artois de Bourbon, Duc d'Angoulême, then serving as Amiral de France, and the Vicomte du Bouchage, Ministre de la Marine. The design for this side of the medal is signed Puymaurin. The reverse of the medal shows the bust of Louis XVIII, designed by F. Andrieu.

        Pompeiana: The Topography, Edifices, and Ornaments of Pompeii.

      By Sir William Gell, F.R.S. F.S.A &c. and John P. Gandy, Architect. London, Rodwell and Martin, 1817-19. 8vo. Engr. front,+ xxxi,+ (1),+ 273,+ (3) pp.+ 79 engr. plates, of which one hand coloured, one in red and two double page [i.e. 77 numbered plates on 75 leaves, plus four unnumbered plates]. Foxing. Near contemporary red morocco binding, richly gilt spine with raised bands, richly blind stamped boards with gilt frames, inner gilt bordures and edges gilt (Dawson & Lewis). Book plate with the initials "A. E. H". and owners's signature of A. E. Hope. Garcia 5824. Furchheim p. 37. Vinet 1724. A very fine copy of the first edition of Gell's important work on Pompeii, written together with John Peter Gandy. Here with the extra plate of Vesuvius, not called for in the list of plates, but counted by Garcia and Furchheim. The plates are mostly after drawings by Gell, but three are after Charles Robert Cockerell, who initially planned to write about Pompeii with Gell. The traveller and archaeologist William Gell (1777-1836) started his travelling life with a diplomatic mission to Greece in 1801. In 1807 he was elected a member of the Society of Dilettanti and undertook explorations in Greece and Asia Minor for them. He travelled much in Italy and settled in Naples, were he showed Pompeii to among others Walter Scott. He died in Naples. John Peter Gandy (1771-1832), later John Peter Deering, accompanied Gell on his tours for the Society of Dilletanti. He became a neo-classical architect. This highly popular work, with its exact drawings, introduced the ruins of Pompeii to the English public in the early period of the excavation of the city. More regular excavations had by now begun and the pace of discoveries was so high that Gell was able to fill two more volumes in 1832 with the results of the excavations conducted since 1819

        A Narrative of the Briton's Voyage to Pitcairn's Island. By Lieut. J. Shillibeer, R.N

      Taunton: printed for the Author by J.W. Marriott, 1817. Octavo, with a frontispiece and 15 illustrations on 11 etched plates, two of which are folding, all by the author; the view of Juan Fernandez printed in ochre; small water-stain in lower corners of a few plates; a very good copy, complete with the initial advertisement leaf, uncut in the original grey boards; spine worn and front cover detached but in excellent unsophisticated condition, in a quarter morocco case. Early visit to Pitcairn. The surprisingly rare first edition; second and third editions which followed shortly afterwards are more often seen, and the obscure provincial imprint of Taunton (in Devon) as well as the fact that the work was privately issued ("Printed for the Author") help to explain its scarcity.Shillibeer's book, as well as being one of the more elusive pieces of Pacificana, manages at the same time to be one of the more delightful. His account of his adventures is full of interest and always idiosyncratic in style, as also are the etched plates, which were his own work and which have an appealing naïveté, as well as a certain home-made charm; the view of Juan Fernandez is printed by him in ochre because it is 'the native colour of the earth of this Island'.The Narrative of the Briton's Voyage is highly important for Pacific history, and particularly for the material that it contains relating to the mutiny on the Bounty. Shillibeer was one of the first to piece together the later history of the mutineers, largely as a result of his meeting and interview with John Adams, the last survivor of the mutiny. The visit to Pitcairn itself is described at length, and the Narrative also describes visits to Chile and Peru, as well as the Galapagos Islands, and the search for the predatory American frigate Essex. The plates include a portrait of Fletcher Christian's son Friday Fletcher October Christian.

        Voyages and travels in various parts of the world, during the years 1803, 1804, 1805, 1806, and 1807.

      Printed by George Philips, Carlisle 1817 - Two parts in one. 8vo in-4. xvi, [ii], [19]-617, [18] pp. Lacking the frontispiece, but with half-titles to each part present. Later quarter calf and marbled boards with red morocco spine label; interior browning with the occasional stain, marginal loss to upper corners of leaves M3, M4, and Z4, and a light damp stain affecting the last few signatures. First American edition (a reprint of the first English translation published in London, 1813-14). In 1803, Adam Johann Ritter von Krusenstern set out from Kronstadt, Russia on what would become the first Russian circumnavigation of the globe. Langsdorff accompanied the expedition as a naturalist and physician, but parted ways with the crew in 1805 upon reaching Kamchatka - a peninsula in far eastern Russia - continuing on to explore the Aleutian Islands and Alaska. In 1806 he sailed from Sitka to the Spanish presidio at San Francisco. He provides detailed descriptions of the region (the original German edition of 1812 actually included a plate that is the first published view of San Francisco) and of his meeting with commandant José Argüello. The visit resulted in the famed romance between Count Nikolay Rezanov of the Russian-American Company, who had traveled with Langsdorff, and Concepción de Argüello, the Spanish commander’s daughter, immortalized in literature by Bret Harte, Gertrude Atherton, and others throughout the years. In addition to his descriptions of these places, Langsdorff also includes accounts of Brazil, Japan, Hawaii and Alaska. "Langsdorff’s account is rich in descriptions of the peoples and cultures visited, and his descriptions of the Marquesans is particularly important and has become something of a classic" (Hill). The section on the vocabulary of various Ainu tribes is also of great interest.Langsdorff (1774-1852) was a German-Russian naturalist who trained in both medicine and natural history in Germany. Langsdorff was responsible for the eventual founding of Fort Ross by the Russian-American Company in 1812. Langsdorff and Rezanov, successful in obtaining supplies, returned to Sitka and then proceeded to Siberia and then overland to St. Petersburg. Langsdorff was thereafter made consul general of Russia in Rio de Janeiro and later led an expedition on the Amazon with a team of scientists. Though he was unable to complete the journey due to a serious illness, the team managed to collect a vast array of specimens and gather a wealth of information about the various tribes that they encountered. Their findings remain at the Academy of Sciences at St. Petersburg today.

Charles Alfred Stothard (1786 -1821), antiquarian draughtsman... published... the Monumental Effigies of Great Britain, a work designed to portray the changes in English costume from the twelfth century to the reign of Henry VIII. The work was issued in twelve parts, each consisting of twelve separate plates, of which the first ten were prepared by Stothard himself; the last two, issued after his death, were the work of other artists. The letterpress was supplied by his friend and brother-in-law, the antiquary Alfred John Kempe, and the last number appeared in 1832. The Effigies became an important sourcebook for Victorian historical genre painters in their search for accurate details of historical costumes....

Moderate creasing, minor loss not affecting text in-filled at lower left margin, imperceptible expert restoration enhancing some lighter areas, else very good. Jefferson writes, in full: ""This moment arrived here I find your favor of June26 and lest the notes should be wanting, I sign them without loss of time and inclose [sic] them [not present] with assurances of my great esteem & respect[.]"" Patrick Gibson (c. 1775-1827) was an emigrant from Great Britain who joined the mercantile firm owned by Jefferson's brother George (1748-1812) in 1800 to form Gibson & Jefferson. After George Jefferson was named consul at Lisbon in 1811, Gibson carried on the business. Jefferson and Gibson did a good deal of business together into the early 1820s. In 1773 Thomas Jefferson inherited Poplar Forest, a 4,800 acre planation in Bedford County, Virginia, from his wife Martha's father. For twenty five years, he managed the plantation mostly from afar, staying at the property on occasion, including a two month stay in 1781 when he fled Monticello to elude capture by the British. (It was during that visit, that Jefferson composed much of his Notes on the State of Virginia). In 1806, toward the close of his presidency, Jefferson decided to construct a retreat and laid the foundation for an octagonal home, based on Palladian design principles, that he completed in 1809. Jefferson visited his retreat three to four times a year, staying weeks up to two months at a time. In 1823, in failing health, he made his final journey to Poplar Forest in order to settle his grandson, Francis Eppes into the home. Two years after Jefferson's death Eppes sold the house to "

        Der ungarische Fuhrwagen

      1817. Tusche und Feder über Bleistift auf Papier, unten links signiert und datiert: "J. A. Klein fec 1817.", 26,2 x 36,5 cm. Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Bei unserem Blatt von Johann Adam Klein handelt es sich um die Grundlage für eine von ihm später im Jahr angefertigte Tonlithographie, die als 14. Blatt in der dritten Lieferung der Sammlung von Original-Handzeichnungen der vorzüglichsten bayerischen lebenden Künstler erschienen ist. Auch wenn Klein die grundlegende Komposition in unserem Blatt bereits geklärt hat2, so nahm er für die Lithographie noch kleinere Änderungen vor, die allerdings entscheidenden Einfluss auf die Bildwirkung haben. So entfiel etwa der springende Hund zugunsten eines weiten Landschaftsausblickes und das Querformat wurde deutlich nach oben erweitert, so dass der Wagen insgesamt eine stärkere Verankerung im Raum erhielt. Jene unmittelbare, beinahe blattfüllende Konfrontation zwischen Wagen und Betrachter, wie sie auf unserem Blatt gegeben ist, entfällt dabei. Auch entbehrt die kleinteilige Ausarbeitung des Vordergrundes in der Lithographie mit den Steinchen und Furchen jene lockere Spontaneität des Pinsels, der die detaillierte Zeichnung der Pferde, auf denen offensichtlich Kleins Hauptaugenmerk lag, besonders akzentuiert. Vermutlich handelt es sich bei den Fuhrleuten um ungarische Fischhändler. Klein hat am 7. Mai 1818 einen ganz ähnlichen Wagen auf dem Fischmarkt in der Nähe des Dianabades in Wien gezeichnet (Vgl.-Abb. 3). Hier entleert einer der Händler gerade das hintere Fass mit den Fischen in ein Netz. Kleins besonderes Interesse an dem ungarischen Landleben und seinen Leuten mag durch die im Spätsommer 1817 gemeinsam mit Heinrich und Johann Mansfeld unternommene Reise an den Neusiedler See in Ungarn neuen Anschub erhalten haben. Unser Blatt bezeugt Kleins tiefgreifendes Interesse an einer dokumentarischen Schilderung seiner Umwelt, die aber keinesfalls in eine bloße Tatsachenbeschreibung abgleitet, sondern durch den Impetus der Arbeit eine sozialhistorische Ebene erhält. Die Schilderungen zeugen dabei von einer ungewöhnlichen Neutralität: Weder romantische Überhöhungen noch kritische Untertöne finden sich in den Momentaufnahmen. Gerade dieser schwebende Zustand des scheinbar gefrorenen Moments, den Klein festzuhalten versteht, macht den besonderen Reiz seiner Arbeiten aus. Die ganze Pracht der Kleinschen Zeichenkunst offenbart sich erst im intensiven Studium des Blattes, bei dem sich an jeder Stelle neu die Verblüffung über den meisterhaften Detailreichtum entzündet. Was den Arbeiten an Dynamik und Geschichte fehlt, kompensieren sie durch eine kontemplative Versenkung.

Rare in this condition. Tobias George Smollett (19 March 1721 ?- 17 September 1771) was a Scottish surgeon, poet and author. He was best known for his picaresque novels, such as The Adventures of Roderick Random (1748) and The Adventures of Peregrine Pickle (1751), which influenced later novelists such as Charles Dickens. George Orwell admired Smollett very much. His novels were amended liberally by printers; a definitive edition of each of his works was edited by Dr. O. M. Brack, Jr. to correct variants. Smollett was born at Dalquhurn, now part of Renton, in present-day West Dunbartonshire, Scotland. He was the fourth son of Archibald Smollett of Bonhill, a judge and land-owner who died about 1726, and Barbara Cunningham, who died about 1766. He was educated at the University of Glasgow, qualifying as a surgeon, but his career in medicine came second to his literary ambitions. In 1739 he went to London to seek his fortune as a dramatist. Unsuccessful, he obtained a commission as a naval surgeon on HMS Chichester and travelled to Jamaica, where he settled down for several years. In 1742 he served as a surgeon during the disastrous campaign to capture Cartagena. On his return, he set up practice in Downing Street and married a wealthy Jamaican heiress, Anne "Nancy" Lascelles (1721?-1791), in 1747. She was a daughter of William Lascelles. They had one child, a daughter Elizabeth, who died aged 15 years about 1762. He had a brother, Capt. James Smollet, and a sister, Jean Smollett, who married Alexander Telfair of Symington, Ayrshire. Jean succeeded to Bonhill after the death of her cousin-german, Mr. Commissary Smollett, and resumed her maiden name of Smollett in 1780. They lived in St. John Street off Canongate, Edinburgh and had a son who was in the Military. His first published work was a poem about the Battle of Culloden entitled "The Tears of Scotland", but it was The Adventures of Roderick Random which made his name, his poetry was described as 'delicate, sweet and murmurs as a stream'.[1] The Adventures of Roderick Random was modelled on Le Sage's Gil Blas, and was published in 1748. Smollett followed it up by finally getting his tragedy, The Regicide, published, though it was never performed. In 1750, Smollett took his MD degree in Aberdeen, and also travelled to France, where he obtained material for his second novel, The Adventures of Peregrine Pickle, another big success. Having lived for a short time in Bath, he returned to London and published The Adventures of Ferdinand Count Fathom in 1753. He was now recognised as a leading literary figure, and associated with the likes of David Garrick, Laurence Sterne, Oliver Goldsmith and Samuel Johnson, whom he famously nicknamed "that Great Cham of literature".[1] In 1755 he published a translation of Miguel de Cervantes's Don Quixote, which he revised in 1761. In 1756, he became editor of The Critical Review. Smollett then began what he regarded as his major work, A Complete History of England, from 1757 to 1765. During this period he served a short prison sentence for libel, and produced another novel, The Life and Adventures of Sir Launcelot Greaves (1760). Having suffered the loss of a daughter, he went abroad with his wife, and the result was Travels through France and Italy (1766). He also wrote The History and Adventures of an Atom (1769), which gave his view of British politics during the Seven Years' War under the guise of a tale from ancient Japan. He also re-visited Scotland and this visit helped inspire his last novel, The Expedition of Humphry Clinker (1771), published in the year of his death. He had for some time been ailing from an intestinal disorder, and had sought a cure at Bath and eventually retired to Italy, where he is buried in the old English cemetery in Livorno, Italy.
