        Journal of a Visit to South Africa, in 1815, and 1816. With some Accounts of the Missionary Settlements of the United Brethren, near the Cape of Good Hope.

      London: L.B. Seeley and R. Ackermann, 1818 - Quarto (263 × 204 mm) Contemporary mid-blue calf, black morocco label to the spine, narrow flattened bands, compartments with gilt saltire formed of lyre tools with a central lozenge containing an octofoil, palmette tools deeply in blind to the interstices, boards elaborately concentrically panelled in gilt and blind, beaded gilt edge-roll, edges and endpapers marbled, gilt laurel wreath and lozenge roll to the turn-ins. A little rubbed, and mottled on the boards, upper joint started towards the tail, but holding, second blank coming loose, some off-setting from and to the plates, one of the uncoloured plates rather browned, light browning overall, remains a highly attractive copy. Folding engraved map as frontispiece, routes marked in red and blue, 12 hand-coloured aquatint plates, and 4 uncoloured engravings. First edition. Latrobe was sent out to South Africa in response to the request of Moravian missionaries at Genadendal and Groenekloof for a minister to visit them. "The Governor of the Cape had expressed a wish that a third station should be opened, and in order to choose a site the author travelled through a large part of the country right up to the Fish River. There is a full description of the district of Groenekloof, and of the missionary settlements, about thirty miles north of Cape Town also an account of the church and village of Caledon" (Mendelssohn). Latrobe's account - characteristic of the man, "devout, but most companionable, and energetic in mind and body" - is much enhanced by the superbly coloured plates after sketches by the author himself and John Melville, Government Surveyor of the Cape, who accompanied him. Also included is a visit to St. Helena, and "the first description of the fledgling colony" of Ascension Island (Howgego). Abbey 325; Howgego, II, A15, S37; Mendelssohn I, p.866; Prideaux p.240; SABIB, III, p. 59; Tooley 292 [Attributes: First Edition]

        TRANSACTIONS OF THE HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY OF LONDON. VOLUME 2 [ONLY]

      1818. Very Good. HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY OF LONDON. TRANSACTIONS OF THE HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY OF LONDON. VOLUME 2. London: Printed by W. Bulmer & Co., Cleveland Row; Sold by J. Hatchard, Picadilly, 1815. Second edition. Engraved title-page and 32 plates, of which three are folding. 31 plates are engraved and one is a b&w lithograph. Of the engraved plates, 16 are color plates, a combination of stipple engraving with hand coloring, mostly of fruit but for "Monopsis Conspicua," "The Large Vegetable Marrow" and a beautiful folding plate of "The Double-Sweet-scented Chinese Peony." Uncolored plates are mostly of plans and structures but for a couple of plants. Many of the b&w plates have the engravers' and artists' names, while only one of the color plates does ("Monopsis Conspicua" printed and engraved by W. Hooker, after R. A. Salisbury). However, according to Gordon Dunthorne, William Hooker (no relation to Sir William) did the majority of the plates in the first five volumes, "including many fine fruit plates which outnumber those of flowers [...] the fruit prints in particular comparing with the best of Hooker's work." Quarto. 28 x 21.5 cm. [2], XXIV, VIII, 186, 185*-186*, 187-369, 372-410, 10, [28] pp. Disbound: Bookblock is sound, with old marbled boards detached yet present, but lacking the ffep. and backstrip. Some light foxing to engraved title-page and a few of the other b&w plates, with offsetting to facing text pages; otherwise the plates and text are quite clean. Ex library, with minimal markings, only a cancelled bookplate on front pastedown and a blind embossed seal on p. 1 of text, and none to plates. A complete copy in very good condition that needs to be rebound. Published between 1807 and 1848, the Transactions of the Horticultural Society of London are esteemed for the very high standard of their production, especially in their plates, and for their interesting and useful content.

        Fundamenta astronomiae pro anno MDCCLV deducta ex observationbibus viri incomparabilis James Bradley in specula astronomica Grenovicensi per annos 1750 - 1762 institutis.

      Friedrich Nicolovius, Königsberg 1818 - Folio (326x202 mm). [12], 325 [1] pp. Later half cloth over sprinkled boards (some wear to extemities, corners bumped), paper label to spine, occasional light spotting and browning, title-page with old ink stamps and shelf mark. --- Houzeau-L. 10117; DSB II, 99 u. 102; Norman 226. ¿ First Edition. "This work also gives the proper motions of the stars, as derived from the observations of Bradley, of Piazzi, and of Bessel himself. It constitutes a milestone in the history of astronomical observations, for until then positions of stars could not be given with comparable accuracy: through Bessel's work, Bradley's observations were made to mark the beginning of modern astrometry" (DSB). -- Bessel's reduction of the English astronomer James Bradley's star position observations for the year 1755 marks the beginning of modern astronomy. Bessel recognized that Bradley's accurate observations could be used to create a reference system for measuring the positions of stars and planets, and to aid in determining accurate positions for the earliest possible epoch. Recognizing that Bradley, although adept at the art of observation, had not been able to evaluate his extensive data, Bessel established the principle that immediately after an observation, the reduction should be made by the observer himself, taking into account precession, nutation, ablation, refraction and instrument error.

        The Chapter of Kings. Illustrated by Thirty-eight Engravings Exhibiting the Most Important Events in English History

      London: J. Harris, 1818. First Edition. Blindstamped Cloth. Very Good. 12mo, 5.25 by 4.25 inches, 14 by 11 cm. As noted in title, with 38 hand-colored plates depicting the kings of England. Each plate has a header caption relating a salient fact about the particular king, and the bottom caption carries a line of doggeril that rhymes with the facing page. The book was intended as an instructive text for children, as noted on the rear cover: "Parents and Teachers must have remarked the difficulty Children experience in recollecting the Succession of the English Monarchs, and likewise how much the memory is assited by rhyme." The blurb also notes the "correctness of the Costume and Design". Modern audiences will undoubtedly find the plates suffused with a gory charm, and this is also an early textbook featuring hand-coloring. Light wear to the binding as well as light soiling to the pages. Overall, quite clean and attractive.
