      Philadelphia: Robert Desilver, 1818. Leather Bound. Very Good. Philadelphia: Robert Desilver, J. Maxwell, printer. 1818. 2 v. : ill., ports. ; 22 cm. V. 1 [I-XXXV] (37-445) V. 2 (1-350) 8vo. Quarterbound in glossy, modern brown leather. Contemporary brown leather boards. Black leather title stamp on spines with gilt lettering. Tight binding and solid boards. Minimal shelf wear. Light rubbing to boards. Minor wear to title stamps. Bumping to corners. Endpapers replaced. Inscription of one, "F. Bollmann, Williamsport, Pennsylvania" dated "1828" on preliminary page of Volume 1. Copper plate engraving of Capt. James Cook, F.R.S. adjacent to title page in Volume 1. Hand drawn ink sketch of a 19th century cannon on final page of volume. Intricate calligraphic sketch of a swan on preliminary page of Volume 2. Owners inscription is repeated several times in calligraphy on the next page. Copper plate engraved portrait of Captain Charles Clerke adjacent to title page. Text is clean and bright. Pages are mostly unmarked, with minor age-related discoloration. Overall, a beautiful, well-preserved set in very good condition. Though Capt. James Cook (1728-1779) started life as a deck hand in a coal boat, he rose to positions of high command in the British navy and made some of the greatest discoveries of the 18th century. In 1776, Cook was ordered to search for a western entrance to the fabled Northwest Passage across America. This trek brought him to Hawaii, the Oregon coast, and far north, past the Bering Strait. The ships left the American coast on Oct. 26, 1778, without having found a Northwest Passage. After he was killed in a dispute with natives upon returning to Hawaii, Cook's crew made another unsuccessful attempt to explore the arctic. Cook wrote these first two volumes on the voyage before his untimely death. A later, third volume was written by Captain James King. More commonly published was a 3 volume collection containing an additional folio-size book of maps and plates. American printings of Cook's voyages have always been scarce; the first American publication of Cook's 3rd voyage was a 1783 Philadelphia reprint of Rickman published by R. Bell, which was described as "a miserable edition" in the Gentleman's Magazine. Another edition appeared in New York in 1796, published by Tiebout and O'Brien for Benjamin Gomez. Plates engraved after the English edition by G. Shallus of 90 South Third St., Philadelphia. Despite the title page calling for 40 engravings, the work is complete with a total of 38 plates. Please feel free to view our photographs of this exceptional collection.

        Handbuch der Entbindungskunst, 2 Bände.

      Tübingen, Christian Friedrich Osiander, 1818 - 1821.. XII, 802, XVI, 264, VIII, 495, 15 S. (Neue) Blau marmorierte Hardcoverbände (Handeinbände) mit dreiseitigem Rotschnitt. Jeder Band mit jeweils zwei Abteilungen, bei Bd. 1 Paginierung durchlaufend, bei Bd. 2 nach Abteilungen getrennt. Bd. 2 mit vier mehrfach gefalteten Kupfern im Anhang. Friedrich Benjamin Osiander (1759 - 1822) studierte an der Universität Tübingen. Nach einer kurzen Zeit als praktizierender Arzt hospitierte Osiander 1781 ein Jahr lang an der Entbindungsanstalt in Kassel und faßte seine Erfahrungen als praktischer Geburtshelfer 1787 in seiner Schrift "Beobachtungen, Abhandlungen und Nachrichten, welche vorzüglich Krankheiten der Frauenzimmer und Kinder und die Entbindungswissenschft betreffen" erstmals zusammen. 1792 wurde Osiander Professor der Gynäkologie und Geburtshilfe an der Universität Göttingen und hatte gleichzeitig die Leitung des Göttinger Klinikums und Entbindungshauses inne. Osianders "Handbuch der Entbindungskunst" kann als wissenschaftiches und praktisches Vermächtnis seiner jahrzehntelangen Tätigkeit als Gynäkologe und Geburtshelfer gelten. Osiander entwickelte mehrere neu Instrumente zur Geburtshilfe, die in den Faltkupfern des Handbuchs illustriert werden, und leistete Beiträge zur Weiterentwicklung von Operationstechniken bei Entbindungen.. Die stilvollen Handeinbände in neuwertigem Zustand; auch innen sehr gute Exemplare; Seiten sauber und nahezu fleckenfrei. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben).

        An Improved System of Telegraphic Communication

      London: for the Author, 1818. Color and b/w plates. 12mo. unpaginated. About 300 pp. Adopting a radical approach for its time, LynnÂ’s system was referenced to “WalkerÂ’s Critical Pronouncing Dictionary, whereby every word therein may be most easily signified, to the exclusion of the tedious operation of spelling by signals.” Lynn sailed for the East India Company. His dedication was to them and his book - in both its editions - was much used by them. This is the second edition of a work first published in 1814. Both editions are rare, seeing hard use aboard ship and ordered to be destroyed if a Company ship was taken by an enemy. This edition contains two lovely hand colored plates of signal flags. Tipped to the front pastedown of this copy is a letter from Lynn presenting the book to Richard Hall Gower - “I have taken the liberty of mentioning your name.” Gower is indeed praised on page xi of the introduction, credited with introducing numerical signals in 1794. A beautiful copy, bound in full black crushed morocco with gilt rules and spine decoration. All edges gilt. Rare, Worldcat showing only 2 holdings.

        AMS - Eigenhändiges Manuskript mit Namenszug auf dem Titel.

      . Berlin (1818). Titel + 2 Seiten gr. folio- Etwas gebräunt, Bugfalte eingerissen.. Johann August Zeune (1778-1853), Pädagoge, Geograph und Germanist; Begründer der Berliner Blindenanstalt, der ersten in Deutschland. - - "Vorschlag zu einer Blinden-Versorg-Anstalt für Berlin / von August Zeune, Vorsteher der Blinden-Erzieh-Anstalt zu Berlin". - Entwurf mit Korrekturen und Streichungen. - - "... Als Blindenerziehanstalt dient nicht bloß für Berlin, sondern zur Zeit auch für den ganzen preußischen Staat die Anstalt, die ich auf Königliche Veranlassung vor nun 12 Jahren gegründet habe und welche sich ... auf dem Georgenkirchhof befindet. Hier sind 10 Freistellen, wo Blinde von der Memel an bis zur Mosel auf 5 Jahre erzogen, unterrichtet und beköstigt werden. Außerdem können aber 15 blinde Kinder aus der Stadt unentgeltlichen Unterricht empfangen ... - - ... Eine Blindenversorganstalt hingegen hat Berlin noch nicht. Sie kann doppelter Art sein, entweder eine wandernde oder ruhende ... Ein wandernde Blinden-Versorg-Anstalt ist eine solche, welche den hilfsbedürftigen die nöthigen Unterstützungen in ihre Wohnungen abliefert ... Eine ruhende Blindenversorganstalt ist eine solche, welche die hilfsbedürftigen Blinden in ein gemeinschaftliches Gebäude vereinigt u. sie daselbst verpflegt. - - ... Die ruhende hat vor der wandernden den Vortheil, daß sie 1) die Blinden besser unter Aufsicht hat und das Betteln verhindert, ... 2) den Blinden selbst ein besseres leibliches Dasein gewährt, in sofern selbige ... ihre Nahrung durch einen gemeinschaftlichen Kochort wohlfeiler u. besser bereitet werden kann, als wenn sie für sich lebten, 3) selbst für ein besseres geistiges Dasein der Blinden Sorge trägt, indem durch Vorlesen guter Bücher ihre lange Nacht erheitert u. sittliches Fortschreiten möglich gemacht wird ..." - - Zum Bedarf bezieht sich Zeune auf Zahlen aus Dresden, wo es "etliche 50 zu versorgende Blinde" bei einer Bevölkerung "von etlichen 50000 Menschen" gebe. "... Bei Berlin kann man wegen des größern Staubes und wegen des häufigeren Genusses des Branntweins den 800ten Menschen als blind annehmen. Dies würde bei einer Bevölkerung von einigen 170000 Menschen etwas über 200 Blinde geben". Die Unterhaltskosten schätzt er auf jährlich 10000 Taler - "Fänden sich nun 5000 wohlwollende Bürger dieser Stadt, welche jährlich Jeder 2 r gäben, oder 2000, welche jeder 5 r gäben, so wären 200 blinde Menschen ... dem Müßiggange und dem Verderben entrissen ..." - - 1806 war Zeune von König Friedrich Wilhelm III. mit der Einrichtung einer Blindenlehranstalt beauftragt worden; seit 1812 war sie in dem ehemaligen Militärlazarett auf dem Georgenfriedhof untergebracht.

      London, Printed for H. Colburn 1818 - 2 Volumes. Bound in red fine modern Moroccan leather. Marbled boards. Gilt spine and gilt extremities. 5 raised bands. New endpages. Fine binding and cover. Clean, unmarked pages with minimal tanning. Cordier, Japonica 465 Vasily Mikhailovich Golovnin was given command of the sloop Diana, and made his first voyage around the world (1807?1809), with the object of conducting a survey of the northern Pacific, and transporting supplies to Okhotsk.In 1811, Golovnin described and mapped the Kuril Islands from the Strait of Hope to the eastern shores of Iturup Island (Etorofu in Japanese).While exploring Kunashir Island (Kunashiri in Japanese), Golovnin was lured ashore, taken prisoner, charged with violating Sakoku (a Japanese policy prohibiting foreigners from entering Japan), and held captive for two years by the Japanese on the island of Hokkaido. Golovnin was said to possess a superior education and fascination with foreign cultures. After making one failed attempt to escape his captures, Golovnin decided to utilize his time in detainment to master the Japanese language, and familiarize himself with Japanese culture and traditions.Golovnin was released in 1813, returned to Russia, and published an account of his years in captivity. His book, Captivity in Japan During the Years 1811, 1812, 1813, became an instant classic. It was hailed in Russia as an authoritative volume on Japanese culture, and helped shape an entire generation's view of Japan. Golovnin clearly respected the Japanese, portraying them as intelligent, as patriotic, and as worthy rivals of the Russians in the Pacific. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

A novel based on Murray?s travels in the Western United States between 1835 and 1838, when he lived for a time with a tribe of Pawnees and which he later wrote about in his factual and highly regarded Travels in North America (1839). Toward the end of his tour, Murray fell in love with Elise Wadsworth, a resident of Niagara, but her father disapproved of Murray and forbade any communication between the two. Prairie-Bird contains a carefully veiled message of Murray?s continued love for Elise, which is alleged to be the only communication between them until after her father died in 1848. They were married the next year. Bookplate of Clement Shorter on the front paste-downs.

        RICKMAN. An Attempt to Discriminate the Styles of English Architecture. Second Edition [ with] KENDALL. An Elucidation of the Principles of Architecture usually denominated Gothic. First Edition. AN UNUSUAL GOTHIC 'DOUBLE'

      Longman, 1818 (first work); Murray, Nornaville and Fell [and others, 1819] (second work). 2 works in one vol. 8vo., with an engraved frontispiece and 13 engraved plates (first work) and 23 engraved plates (second work), some very light spotting (mainly marginal) on plates; handsomely bound in twentieth century half calf, marbled boards, back ruled, tooled and lettered in gilt, a highly attractive bright, crisp copy, ideal as a gift or for presentation. Since the binding is lettered only for the Rickman it is possible that a previous owner did not realise that TWO important works are present here (the latter, unnamed, work being much the scarcer).Rickman provided the first systematic treatise on Gothic architecture in England. Its influence was profound, for his terminology was employed by virtually all subsequent writers; much of it, indeed, is still current today. First published in 1817 in Liverpool (where the present issue was compiled), one of its most valuable features was its descriptive list of (over 800) extant buildings illustrating the principles of English architecture and helpfully arranged by county. In this updated edition the number of buildings is greatly enlarged. Kendall's VERY SCARCE analysis is based on the ornaments, arches, columns etc., of Exeter Cathedral; the work is intended for practising architects who are taught the main elements which must be followed meticulously to achieve the pure pointed style. Kendall (1766-1829) was Surveyor of Exeter Cathedral and responsible for much restoration after about 1805. His important work was reissued once only, by Bohn in 1842. A FINE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE TWO KEY AND BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED GOTHIC TEXTS IN A SINGLE, HANDSOME BINDING. . Catalogs: english church architecture.

      Thomas McLean London 1818 - Aquatint engraving with original hand-colour. Dimensions: 375 by 495mm. (14.75 by 19.50 inches). For Oriental Field Sports, "The most beautiful book on Indian sport in existence" (Schwerdt). Captain Williamson was an extremely talented amateur artist who had built up a fine collection of sketches suitable for turning in to aquatint. He teamed up with Howett - a notable sportsman as well as an industrious engraver of animals to produce this magnificent work, widely considered to contain the finest images of field sports of the Orient. By their very nature aquatint books were always very expensive, but the British public had a great curiosity about India and Williamson's work helped satisfy this desire to know more about the customs of Britain's new addition to the empire.

        "The music, melody and rhythmus of language; in which are explained … the five accidents of speech … and a musical notation … to which are added, outlines of gesture and a selection of pieces in verse and prose."

      Edinburgh: "printed by Michael Anderson for Macredie, Skelly, and Co.". 1818. "First edition, 8vo, pp. xxiv, 250, [1]; later half calf and maroon cloth, morocco spine label lettered in gilt, spine gilt, marbled endpapers, extremities rubbed, else a very good, sound copy. The author, a teacher of elocution, wrote the present work with his students in mind. In the introduction he gives credit to Mr. Steele's Prosodia Rationalis, ""a work of great merit and ingenuity,"" for introducing the system which Chapman here sets out to explain and simplify. Steele's system was a result of his effort to prove that the English language ""has the same accidents of speech, viz. accent, emphasis, quantity, pause, and quality of sound, as the ancient Greek and Latin languages"" (see introduction). Only 6 copies (5 in the U.S) in OCLC. Not in Kennedy."

        AS THE FLORIDA CLAIMS UNDER GRANTS FROM THE BRITISH GOVERNMENT, ARE NOT GENERALLY WELL UNDERSTOOD BY MANY, THE FOLLOWING OBSERVATIONS ARE RESPECTFULLY SUBMITTED FOR THEIR CONSIDERATION...[caption title]

      [Np, but probably London. ca. 1818].. Broadside, 8 x 13 inches. Light fold lines, minor wear to edges, 3-inch tear in from left edge, 1-inch tear in from right. Overall very good. A rare Florida broadside elucidating the reasoning behind British land claims in Florida in anticipation of annexation by the United States. Beginning with the Spanish seizure of West Florida from the British in 1781, land claims in Florida were somewhat protected during transfers in sovereignty. British citizens retained private title to their lands and were free to sell their estates or retain them at their leisure. In anticipation of the cession of Florida to the United States (accomplished via the Adams- Onìs Treaty in 1819), British citizens with claims in Florida were anxious to guarantee that their titles would be similarly protected. Citing the legal precedent, "jus postliminium," the anonymous author justifies the numerous claims to Congress in defense of these titles on the grounds that transfers of political authority do not invalidate private property rights, and mentions the United States has often made use of the precedent. Printed British legal reference citations in the left margin suggest London as the place of publication. An important Florida item and one that, given Adams' crafty engineering of the Florida acquisition, represents a most understandable concern. Extremely rare. Not in Servies nor on OCLC.

        RACCOLTA DI CINQUANTA PRINCIPALI VEDUTE DI ANTICHITA', TRATTE DAI SCAVI FATTI IN ROMA IN QUESTI ULTIMI TEMPI Disegnate ed incise all’acqua forte da Luigi Rossini Architetto.

      Roma, da Giovanni Scudellari, 1818. Album in-4 oblungo (mm. 330x430), mz. pelle coeva (abras. ai piatti), tit. oro su tassello al dorso, frontesp. inciso e 46 (su 50) belle tavv., inc. all?'acquaforte e numerate, che includono vedute dei più suggestivi edifici classici e rovine romane, nonchè luoghi meno noti. Nel ns. esempl. due tavole (la n. 31 ?"Veduta generale del Foro Romano?" e la n. 44 ?"Veduta del Convento delle Monache Domenicane?") sono state sostituite da altre due, sempre del Rossini, ma provenienti da una diversa raccolta, i.e.: ?"Castello dell?'Acqua Giulia?" e ?"Porta Ostiense?". Le tavv. mancanti sono: n. 20 ?"Veduta della Colonna dell?'Imperatore Foca, fatta escavare dalla Duchessa di Devonshire?" - n. 27 ?"Veduta delle tre colonne di Giove Tonante, secondo gl?'ultimi scavi?" - n. 32 ?"Veduta degl?'avanzi d?'una delle Sale degl?'Imperatori, nelle Terme di Tito?" - n. 33 ?"Veduta dell?'Anfiteatro Flavio detto il Colosseo?". "Seconda edizione" di questa preziosa raccolta del celebre architetto-incisore, uno dei maggiori illustratori di Roma (la prima ediz., pubblicata nel 1817, conteneva soltanto 40 vedute). ?"Luigi Rossini (1790-1857), calcografo, pittore e architetto ravennate, studiò all?'Accademia di Bologna. Premiato più volte, riuscì vincitore nel concorso per il premio Quadriennale di Roma. Trasferitosi colà nel 1810, vi continuò i suoi studi di architettura e di pittura, senza tuttavia riuscire a segnalarsi. La sua fama la dovette all?'attività incisoria, cominciata nel 1814 con stampe riproducenti antichità romane. Le sue incisioni comparvero in raccolte: ?"Antichità dei contorni di Roma?" - ?"Raccolta di 50 principali vedute.. incise in acquaforte?" - ?"Le antichità romane, ossia raccolta delle più interessanti vedute..?": tutte ispirate al Piranesi, intese con grandiosità e rese pittoricamente, sebbene con fedeltà al vero. Durante i quarant?'anni e più della sua attività, il R. incise circa mille rami: seicentosei se ne conservano tuttora nella Calcografia di Roma?". Così Servolini, pp. 713-714. Cfr. Brunet,IV, 1408 - Graesse,VI,170. Timbro al frontesp., qualche lieve arross. o lievi tracce d?'uso solo marginali, altrim. esemplare ben conservato.

        Valkyria.

      - Denna detalj ur Sandbergs monumentala verk »Valkyrior ridande till strid» (1818-20) återger centralgestalten som ett solitärporträtt. Det har säkerligen utförts under arbetet med den större kompositionen och överensstämmelsen mellan bilderna är stor frånsett smärre detaljer.»Valkyrior ridande till strid» är ett av den kortlivade götiska rörelsens viktigaste verk. Valkyriorna var de andeväsen som i striden avgjorde vilka krigare som skulle falla och medföras till Valhall. I Sandbergs målning återges tre av dem till höger i bild, ridande till strid. De befinner sig i himlen ovanför drabbningen med fladdrande mantlar och fällda spjut. På motsatt sida balanseras de av Freja, också hon till häst.Sandberg deltog med en stor skiss till målningen på Götiska förbundets berömda utställning i Stockholm 1818 (1). Jämte Fogelbergs modeller till monumentalstatyerna av Oden, Frej och Tor var Sandbergs skiss det verk som väckte störst uppmärksamhet, och med den fick han sitt stora genombrott. Målningen fullbordades ett par år senare, den är signerad och daterad 1820 och köptes av Gustaf Trolle-Bonde till konstsamlingen på Säfstaholm. Sedan 1991 tillhör den Nationalmuseum (2).Under en kort period i början av 1800-talet försökte flera konstnärer ge liv åt nordiska myter och hjältesagor i sin konst, bl. a. med entusiastiskt stöd av Karl XIV Johan som utnyttjade den fornnordiska retoriken för att befästa sin ställning. Intresset för den dimhöljda nordiska forntiden hade börjat växa fram på flera håll i Europa under slutet av 1700-talet, och i både Sverige och Danmark förstärktes de nationella stämningarna av napoleonkrigens traumatiska och förödmjukande omvälvningar, för Sveriges del förlusten av Finland 1809.Den götiska poesin fick sitt stora genombrott 1811 med Tegnérs »Svea» och Geijers dikter »Manhem», »Vikingen» och »Odalbonden». Men det som var möjligt i litteraturen var inte lika självklart i bildkonsten. Försök i genren uppmuntrades, bl. a. anordnade Götiska förbundet 1817-1818 en tävling för motiv ur den nordiska gudaläran med prispengar från en anonym donation. Men den konstnärliga utmaningen var stor. De nordiska sagorna utgjorde inte någon levande tradition och i brist på arkeologiskt material visste man mycket litet om hur den nordiska fornvärlden egentligen sett ut. Risken var stor att forntidens hjältar och gudar skulle bli framställda på samma sätt som de klassiska från Grekland och Rom, bara i annorlunda kläder. Det skulle visa sig att man inte förmådde övervinna dessa grundläggande problem. Både Sandberg själv och andra konstnärer överflyttade gradvis sitt intresse för den inhemska kulturen på ett besläktat tema, folklivsskildringar och motiv ur svensk historia. Olja på duk.

        On the Safety Lamp for Coal Miners;

      London: R. Hunter,, 1818. with some Researches on Flame. Octavo. Original brown boards backing blue-grey paper, paper label to spine lettered in black. Full page fold-out diagram. Ownership inscription (Paris address) to verso of front free endpaper. Some light stains to boards, tips worn, upper hinge cracked but holding, contents slightly foxed and a little cockled. A very good copy. First edition. A collection of Davy's researches into combustion for the design of his miner's safety lamp, with a detailed fold-out diagram of his invention. An icon of the industrial revolution, the need for a safety lamp for miners was born out of a series of explosions in coal mines, due to pockets of flammable gas known as firedamp. After some experimentation in the autumn of 1815, Davy created a prototype. It was a simple and elegant solution to a deadly problem: a fine mesh enclosing the flame acted as a deflagration arrester and prevented ignition of firedamp. It was tested in January 1816 at Hebburn colliery and quickly went into production. However, the then-unknown George Stephenson had also been working on the problem independently, and had invented a similar lamp using glass instead of gauze ?- the Geordie lamp, as it was later named. Davy's invention quickly became embroiled in controversy over plagiarism, from which he was later cleared. Both men's lamp designs also had safety issues, with the gauze of the Davy lamp rusting in the wet mining conditions and so rendering the lamp unsafe. Nonetheless, the Davy lamp was cheap to produce, and its gauze design remained integral to the mining industry. It was subsequently incorporated into many safety lamp designs ?- indeed, an equivalent version is still used today. A fascinating book, in which Davy writes of his hope that some practical purpose may be derived from his research in order to "lessen the miseries or increase the comforts of our fellow creatures" (preface). Scarce in the original boards.

        Tales of My Landlord, Second Series

      Edinburgh: Printed for Archibald Constable and Company, 1818 Four volumes. First edition, with half-titles. Volume I second state, with "A" to the dedication page, volume II first state, with "Wichtcraft" to page 52, volume IV first state, with page 348 misnumbered as 438. Finely bound in contemporary full brown speckled calf, with contrasting red and green labels lettered in gilt to the spines, spine compartments ruled in gilt, board edges stamped in blind, blue speckled edges. Very good, with some wear and rubbing to the extremities, some rubbing to the spines, former owner's bookplates to the front pastedowns, some light offsetting to the endpapers, volume II with a small hole to the rear fly leaf, a few minor creases to the otherwise bright and clean pages. Overall, a bright and pleasing set, free of any repairs or restoration. These four volumes comprise the second installment of the Tales of My Landlord series, a subset of Scott's Waverley novels. The series, intended to highlight life in different Scottish regions, was published under Scott's pseudonym Jedediah Cleishbotham the "Schoolmaster and Parish-clerk of Gandercleugh" and purported to be a collection of tales from the landlord of the fictional Wallace Inn at Gandercleugh, who was said to have sent them to Cleishbotham for editing and arrangement. The second series of Tales of My Landlord contains Scott's popular historical novel "The Heart of Midlothian," which is widely considered one of the best of the Waverley novels. The title "The Heart of Midlothian" refers to the Old Tolbooth Prison in Edinburgh and emphasizes the novel's central theme of crime and punishment. Based on the actual Porteous Riots of 1736, "The Heart of Midlothian" tells the story of nobleman George Staunton and his lover Effie Deans. Presented as the man whose freedom ultimately sparked the riots, Staunton attempts to assist Effie, who is convicted of infanticide after her child by Staunton is kidnapped by his former mistress. The novel follows Effie's sister's valiant efforts to clear Effie's name, the mistress's treatment of Effie's son, and Staunton's ultimate downfall.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.
