Smith from Kew Gardens and other botanists were along to collect plant seeds. Tuckey died on the support ship.<br> &#147;Tuckey was one of the most observant of travelers. He had served in the Eastern Seas, and made a voyage to Brazil and Port Philip in 1803. Captured on his return voyage, he like Flinders, was detained as a prisoner by the French for several years. He subsequently compiled a valuable work on &#145;Maritime Geography&#146; before setting on the government expedition to explore the Congo, then by many conjectured to be the outlet of the Niger. The results of this expedition were most disastrous, Captain Tuckey and many others dying within three months after entering the river&#148;.<br> &#147;An introductory view of African discovery preceeds the narrative of Tuckey and Smith and a series of appendices follow: these include (1) a vocabulary of the Malemba and Embonma languages by Cat. Tuckey. (2) Observations on the Genus Ocythioe of Rafinesque by Dr. Leach. (3) On Sepia and Vermes Testacea with plates.

        On the Fire-Damp of Coal Mines, and on Methods of Lighting the Mines So as to Prevent Its Explosion" (Davy) & "An Account of an Invention for Giving Light in Explosive Mixtures of Fire-Damp in Coal Mines, by Consuming the Fire-Damp"(Davy) in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Volume 106, 1816, pp. 1-22, 23-24 WITH An Essay towards the Calculus of Functions Part I and II (Babbage) in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Volume 105, 1816, Part I pp. 1-22, 23-24, Part II 179-256 WITH "On the laws which regulate the polarisation of light by reflection from transparent bodies" (Brewster) in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Volume 105, 1815, Parts I and II, pp. 125-159

      FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT AND DESCRIPTION of an invention some have argued rescued the Industrial Revolution, Humphrey Davy&#39;s Safety Lamp (this published prior to Davy&#39;s own 1818 book on the subject). & & "Two great events amazed Britain in 1815: the victory of Wellington over Napoleon and the victory of Davy over mine gases. The Industrial Revolution was in danger of stalling in the early 19th c. due to the dangers in mining with contemporary lamps that used flame and ignited explosions. A disaster near Newcastle in 1812 killed 101 miners, and more than two-thirds of the coal mines in England were considered too dangerous to work because of their levels of coal gas. & & "In 1815 Davy was invited by the Chairman of a &#39;Society for Preventing Accidents in Coal Mines&#39; to invent a solution... Davy had earlier studied flames and their propagation and noted that flames could not propagate through small holes. Thus his solution was merely to surround the lamp with a cylinder of wire mesh that still left the flame open to the atmosphere. The mesh conducted away the heat of the flame, thus cooling it so that the temperature methane would encounter at the lamp would be lower than its flash point. The flame itself could not penetrate the mesh...Although the flame and combustible gas were in open contact, there would be no explosion" (Greenberg, A Chemical History Tour, 184-185). & & Davy published these two papers in Philosophical Transactions in late 1815 and early 1816. In 1818 he was made a Baronet for his service to Britain&#39;s industry. & & ALSO in this volume is Part II of Babbage&#39;s seminal &#39;An Essay towards the Calculus of Functions,&#39; his most important mathematical work. "Babbage believed that his new scheme would serve as a generalized calculus to include all problems capable of analytical formulation and it is possible to see here a hint of the inspiration for his concept of the Analytical Engine. While the work on the engines and his other scientific, social and political activities caused him virtually to abandon mathematical research at the age of thirty, the calculus of functions was the area he often yearned to continue. In fact, the calculus of functions was not taken up by other workers, and it is the aspect of Babbage&#39;s mathematical work that modern mathematicians find the most fascinating" (Dubbey, The Mathematical Work of Charles Babbage). & & ALSO INCLUDED: First editions of Charles Babbage&#39;s first papers as well as his most important contribution to mathematics, the calculus of functions. & & ALSO INCLUDED: First edition of &#39;Brewster&#39;s Angle, "one of Brewster&#39;s most important contributions to the science of physics" (Molecular Expressions Website). CONDITION & DETAILS: Philosophical Transactions Volume for the year MDCCCXV (1815) and MDCCCXVI (1816) Ex-libris bearing only a miniscule "Athenaeum Library, Liverpool" stamp and at the foot (margin) of some of the plates.

      - 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.

        An Argument for Construing Largely the Right of an Appellee of Murder, to Insist on, Trial by Battle; and for Abolishing Appeals

      London - Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy; Clarke and Sons 1818 - The second edition, revised and enlarged,of this scarce text, by author and political writer, Edward Kendall. This copy is inscribed by the author to an Irish Earl. Very scarce -only seen once at auction in the last thirty years in any of the three editions, all 1818. Rebacked in leather with the original boards, with gilt lettering and decoration to the spine. With a copperplate ink inscription Sent to the Earl ofBlessington by E. A. Kendall, Esq. to the verso of the frontispiece. With an Appendix, containing a report on the debate in the House of Commons, on a clause for abolishing appeals of murder in the British North American colonies. There is a printing error in the pagination of the last three pages. The first is unpaginated,then 204, and 201. Charles John Gardiner, 1st Earl of Blessington, 1782 1829, was an Irish earl. He was elected a representative peer in 1809, created Earl of Blessington in 1816, and inherited the title of Viscount Mountjoy in 1829. Edward Augustus Kendall, d. 1842, was a writer. Little is known about his life. Kendall'sliterary output is varied, and can be divided into four general categories, his serious ideas and proposals for political and social reforms, for example his letters on the state of Ireland; his weekly popular journalism which, ambitiously, might be described as a forerunner of Harmsworth; his translations from the French; and his children's books -ODNB. Condition: The textblock binding is generallytight and firm. The inner hinges are strained, and the first three leaves are only partially attached. There is wear to the extremities, including rubbing and edge wear with slight loss and lifting, and with marks to the boards. Internally the pages have slight browning with occasional spots, prominent to the first and last few pages. There is a copperplate ink inscription dated 1840 to the front free-endpaper. Overall the condition is good only with a very good interior. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An Account of the Natives of the Tonga Islands, in the South Pacific Ocean. With an Original Grammar and Vocabulary of their Language. Compiled and arranged from the Extensive Communications of Mr. William Mariner.

      London: John Murray, 1818 - 2 volumes, octavo (210 × 129 mm). Contemporary dark blue diced calf, red morocco lettering- and numbering-pieces, flat bands with gilt sextuple rules and fleuron tools, gilt triple fillet panels enclosing a dotted panel to the compartments, foliate rolled panel to the boards, gilt milling at the board corners, marbled edges, grey endpapers. A little rubbed, some restoration at the head of the spine of volume I, gilt retouched in places, portrait slightly browned and off-setting onto the title page, light browning and scattered foxing else, a very good set. Engraved portrait frontispiece - "Mr. Mariner in the costume of the Tonga Islands" - to volume I, folding engraved map to volume II. Originally published in the previous year, this the "Second Edition, with additions" which include the folding map, a new preface and an enlarged introduction. "Considered the best report of Tongan life and culture before the arrival of Christianity the customs of the inhabitants and their inter-island wars, and also examples of Tongan songs and music" (Hill). Mariner had sailed on the privateer Port-au-Prince in 1805, aged 13. "After an adventurous voyage the ship arrived at the Tonga Islands in poor condition, hoping to carry out repairs. The crew met with a hostile reception and many of them were massacred. Mariner, however, was taken under the protection of the principal chief, Finau Ulukalala, who bestowed on him the name of one of his deceased sons, Toki Ukamea, and appointed one of his wives to be Mariner's adopted mother. Mariner's residence in Tonga lasted for four years. During this time he became thoroughly conversant with the language and customs of this Polynesian people Using the guns from the Port-au-Prince, and helped by his surviving companions, he took a full and often decisive part in his protector's warlike campaigns against other islands. Eventually times became more peaceful and Toki attained the status of a chief, living on his own cultivated plantations" (ODNB). In 1810 Mariner worked his passage back to England, and became a stockbroker, some time later becoming embroiled in a forgery scandal, the exchequer bill affair of 1836&#150;41. He died in 1853. The book was extensively reviewed by Southey in the Quarterly Review (April, 1817), describing it as "one of the most interesting narratives which we have ever perused", and noting telling affinities between the Finau the Tongan tyrant and the recently deposed French emperor, for example in the "utter disregard for human life by which such men as Finow [sic] and Buonaparte are distinguished." Hill p. 378.

      Picadilly London, March 26, 1818 Beautifully written lengthy letter from William Carey. In part, Carey writes, "Long esteemed the Father of Historical Painting in the British school, the painter whose performance I have ventured, has not obtained his reputation without a conflict - Homer had . . . Michael Angelo found enemies in Torigiano and Bandinelli and from the appearance of West's Death of General Wolfe and Regular to this grand composition each of his works in succession has roused the attacks of envy and Ignorance. . . . I can boldly reply to the cold . . of Anti-contemporariness and the anonymous publications of malevolent jealousy that I am not the creator of a new fame, nor the Promulgator of a similar opinion - the meanings which is wounded by the success of the painter may asperse my impartiality but believe me Gentlemen although I could be the friend and admirer of a Raphael or Leonardo ad Vinci, I could not be the slave or parasite of either . . .

        On the Fire-Damp of Coal Mines, and on Methods of Lighting the Mines So as to Prevent Its Explosion" (Davy) & "An Account of an Invention for Giving Light in Explosive Mixtures of Fire-Damp in Coal Mines, by Consuming the Fire-Damp"(Davy) in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Volume 106, 1816, pp. 1-22, 23-24 WITH An Essay towards the Calculus of Functions Part I and II (Babbage) in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Volume 105, 1816, Part I pp. 1-22, 23-24, Part II 179-256 WITH "On the laws which regulate the polarisation of light by reflection from transparent bodies" (Brewster) in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Volume 105, 1815, Parts I and II, pp. 125-159

      - FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT AND DESCRIPTION of an invention some have argued rescued the Industrial Revolution, Humphrey Davy's Safety Lamp (this published prior to Davy's own 1818 book on the subject). "Two great events amazed Britain in 1815: the victory of Wellington over Napoleon and the victory of Davy over mine gases. The Industrial Revolution was in danger of stalling in the early 19th c. due to the dangers in mining with contemporary lamps that used flame and ignited explosions. A disaster near Newcastle in 1812 killed 101 miners, and more than two-thirds of the coal mines in England were considered too dangerous to work because of their levels of coal gas. "In 1815 Davy was invited by the Chairman of a 'Society for Preventing Accidents in Coal Mines' to invent a solution. Davy had earlier studied flames and their propagation and noted that flames could not propagate through small holes. Thus his solution was merely to surround the lamp with a cylinder of wire mesh that still left the flame open to the atmosphere. The mesh conducted away the heat of the flame, thus cooling it so that the temperature methane would encounter at the lamp would be lower than its flash point. The flame itself could not penetrate the mesh.Although the flame and combustible gas were in open contact, there would be no explosion" (Greenberg, A Chemical History Tour, 184-185). Davy published these two papers in Philosophical Transactions in late 1815 and early 1816. In 1818 he was made a Baronet for his service to Britain's industry. ALSO in this volume is Part II of Babbage's seminal 'An Essay towards the Calculus of Functions,' his most important mathematical work. "Babbage believed that his new scheme would serve as a generalized calculus to include all problems capable of analytical formulation and it is possible to see here a hint of the inspiration for his concept of the Analytical Engine. While the work on the engines and his other scientific, social and political activities caused him virtually to abandon mathematical research at the age of thirty, the calculus of functions was the area he often yearned to continue. In fact, the calculus of functions was not taken up by other workers, and it is the aspect of Babbage's mathematical work that modern mathematicians find the most fascinating" (Dubbey, The Mathematical Work of Charles Babbage). ALSO INCLUDED: First editions of Charles Babbage's first papers as well as his most important contribution to mathematics, the calculus of functions. ALSO INCLUDED: First edition of 'Brewster's Angle, "one of Brewster's most important contributions to the science of physics" (Molecular Expressions Website).
