Al dejar su servicio activo se consagró a la preparación de una serie de obras sobre los territorios en los que se había desempeñado, como atento observador de las respectivas escenas locales. La que dedica a la América española se propone una actualización de los conocimientos sobre el Nuevo Mundo, que pudiera ser no sólo útil sino también amena para un público amplio, y que estuviera exenta de la habitual mezcla de consideraciones políticas con complejas observaciones científicas. Entre las fuentes consultadas para la elaboración de la obra se destaca especialmente la de Humboldt, a quien el autor considera el más valioso de cuantos viajeros científicos se ocuparon de las orillas del mundo occidental .

Ottley
London: Longman, Hurst, Rees Orme and Brown, 1818. When ordering from the US, parcels may be subject to import tax and duty charges, which the buyer is responsible to pay. The full title to this book is: Engravings of the Most Noble the Marquis of Stafford's collection of pictures in London, arranged according to schools and in chronological order, with remarks on each picture by William Young Ottley, Esq. F.S.A. The executive part under the management of Peltro William Tomkins, Esq., historical engraver to Her Majesty. This is the original book, subdivided in four volumes with original engravings and printed plans showing where the art was displayed in the house. Each engraving has it's own plate indent and required text as was originally produced. The book is covered in leather and has a gold stamp on the front and back. The binding is tight except that the front cover with about 10 pages attached is loose from the rest of the book and the back cover is also about to come loose. Pages have some foxing, especially on the back of some of the early pages and the leather has a lot of wear as is consistent with age. No prints have been removed though as far as I can tell. This is a truly remarkable find, a very rare and a unique piece. The book is large (elephant folio?) and heavy. It measures 16 ½" by 13" by 2 1/2" and weighs 14 ½ pounds without packaging.

J K Tuckey
ont> John Murray : London, 1818. John Kirk's copy of the first edition of this important travel work regarding Tuckey's expedition along the River Congo. This account of the journey is decorated by a folding map frontispiece of the coast from Cape Lopez, and thirteen plates, with one hand-coloured. With John Kirk's inscription to the title page 'John Kirk, Zambesi Exped 1858'. Kirk brought this book with him on the expedition to explore the Zambesi river's mouths and tributaries in order to navigate the waterway to the interior. In addition to this, Livingstone was continuing his mission to introduce the people of Africa to Christianity and freeing them from slavery. This was Livingstone's second Zambesi expedition. It was here Kirk went as a botanist and chief assistant. The expedition was difficult, and many expedition members including Kirk noted that Livingstone was an inept leader. In 1862 Kirk wrote that Livingstone was an unsafe leader and 'out of his mind'. These criticisms of Livingstone were given weight by Livingstone's disappearance on his next expedition, later being famously 'found' by Stanley. Livingstone's expedition became the first to reach Lake Malawi which they explored in a four-oared gig. By 1864 the journey was halted due to the increasing cost and the failure to find a navigable route. Part of their difficulties came with navigating the Ruvuma River due to the number of bodies thrown into the river by slave traders. Many newspapers branded the expedition a failure, despite the valuable collections of botanical, ecological and ethnographic material co … [Click Below for Full Description]

While not having a particularly distinguished career, he is remembered for the entertaining journals he kept and for the pencil drawings he completed in the Arctic.In 1818, he was sent along with Joseph Ritchie by Sir John Barrow to find the course of the Niger River and the location of Timbuktu. The expedition was underfunded, lacked support and had to cross the Sahara as part of their journey. A year later, due to much officialdom they had only got as far as Murzuk where they both fell ill. Ritchie never recovered and died there, but Lyon survived and travelled a little further around the region. Exactly a year to the day he … [Click Below for Full Description]

Gillray, James (1756-1815)
1818. London and Edinburgh: John Miller and W. Blackwood. Full Straight-Grained Morocco. Near Fine. A spectacular assemblage of the master caricaturist's oeuvre! Politicians, fashion, actors and opera singers, ladies playing cards, sportsmen (skaters, hunters), connoisseurs and aesthetes, royalty, the rich and the rabble -- nothing was sacred before Gillray's acerbic eye and brush! N.d., 1818. Oblong 4to, 23 by 32.5 cm. 164 pp., plus 85 hand-colored aquatint or engraved plates, four of which are folding. The coloring is throughout rich and bright. No small part of what makes this survey a true treasure are the typically three or four pages (occasionally less, occasionallyl more) of droll commentary that accompany each plate. These short essays provide the context and explain the goings-on in the illustrations, which might have even been sometimes obscure then after the passage of a few years. In doing this, the text aspires to capture some of the Gillray voice but in more than clipped dialogue bubbles. At times these explanations might themselves beg for further interpretation for the reader of today, but they are also rich in cultural and social material that greatly augments the Gillray artwork. The collection is bound to be a revelation to anyone not already very familiar with Gillray in its diverse subject matter, for Gillray excelled equally at political satire and social and cultural mockery. And even when the subject matter is not immediately accessible to us, one can not but relish the imagination Gillray applied to it and the material remains highly risi … [Click Below for Full Description]

After 35 years in India, devoting most of his time "to the acquisition of local and professional knowledge" (preface), British Officer John Johnson decided to travel to England by land. This account of his travels documents the local life and customs encountered along the route, and, with future travellers in mind, he included a list of his travel expenses from Bombay to London. The plates were etched in aquatint by the watercolour painter and engraver Theodore Henry Adolphus Fielding (1781-1851), who was proficient in aquatint, stipple and line engraving and went on to publish a series of important books on painting and engraving. Provenance: armorial bookplate of Barnston to front pastedown, with motto "Honor Virtutis Calcar".

HENNEQUIN, Pierre.
1818. 8vo (198 × 125 mm), pp. [6], xiii, [14]–462, [2] errata; small stain to lower right-hand margin of p. ix, not affecting text, some very light foxing; contemporary polished tree calf, smooth spine gilt with red sheep lettering-piece, marbled endpapers, some minor scratches and marks to boards, a little rubbed but still very good. First edition. Dedicated to the Dowager Empress Maria Feodorovna (1759–1828), the present book of rhetoric for young people was unabashedly written for the use of both sexes: ‘Si nous écrivons dans un pays où l’on auroit l’injustice d’exiger que les femmes ne fissent aucun usage de leur esprit, on trouveroit absurd et ridicule l’idée de donner, pour le beau sexe, des règles d’eloquence française et latine; et si je pouvois pressentir encore les objections usées des temps gothiques, je me mettrois en devoir de combattre, après tant d’auteurs qui l’ont fait avec avantage, le préjudgé barbare qui condamnoit autrefois à l’ignorance et à l’obscurité la partie la plus interessante de la société humaine ’ (Preface). The author points to the Russian throne as evidence of burgeoning change, and encourages readers to not dissociate traditionally feminine graces from affairs of the mind: ‘Je dirois aux femmes que l’esprit n’est point incompatible avec la beauté, les lettres avec la naissance, l’étude avec les plaisirs, les muses avec les grâces: que les femmes, destinées à plaire par les charmes de la figure peuvent également aspirer à la gloire des talens’.

Barrow, John
John Murray, London, 1818. First edition of the prolific author's detailed account of the history of early voyages to the arctic, from the sixteenth century through 1818 and the voyages of Ross, Kotzebue, Buchan, Parry and Franklin. Octavo, bound in three quarters morocco over marbled boards with gilt titles and tooling to the spine, exquisite folding map of the arctic regions, appendix illustrated with engravings. In very good condition. Prolific English author Sir John Barrow was appointed Second Secretary to the Admiralty by Viscount Melville in 1804, a post he held for over forty years. In his position at the Admiralty, Barrow was a great promoter of Arctic voyages of discovery, including those of John Ross, William Edward Parry, James Clark Ross and John Franklin. The Barrow Strait in the Canadian Arctic as well as Point Barrow and the city of Barrow in Alaska are named after him. He is reputed to have been the initial proposer of St Helena as the new place of exile for Napoleon Bonaparte following the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. Barrow's Chronological History of Voyages into the Arctic Regions describes early voyages to the Arctic, through the sixteenth, seventeenth, eighteenth centuries up to 1818 and the voyages of Ross, Kotzebue, Buchan, Parry and Franklin. The appendices include Buchan's expedition into the interior of Newfoundland and a relation of the discovery of the Strait of Anian made by Captain Maldonado in 1588 (Mill, 31).

"This expedition took Lord Amherst's embassy to China and explored the relatively little-known East China Sea and the Yellow Sea. Visits were made to Korea and the Ryukyu Archipelago. Korea had been sketchily explored by Europeans, but it was not until this 1816-7 expedition of the Alceste and Lyra, under Captains Murray Maxwell and Basil Hall, that detailed information was obtained about the Ryukus. On the homeward passage, the Alceste was wrecked in Gaspar Strait off Sumatra. Captain Hall served in the Royal Navy from 1802-23 and achieved the rank of post-captain. He saw extensive duty on the Pacific coast of America, and continued his travels as a private citizen. He wrote many other books about his travels and experiences."—Hill.
