        Essais de Michel de Montaigne. Nouvelle édition

      Lefèvre, Paris 1818 - ____ "Cette édition réunit à tous les avantages de celle de Naigeon, plusieurs améliorations détaillées dans la préface. L'impression est soignée et le papier de belle qualité. On en a tiré cent exemplaires en Grand Papier vélin qui sont fort beaux, et qu'on ne trouve plus facilement." (Brunet). Il s'agit ici de l'un des 100 exemplaires imprimés sur grand papier vélin, contenant le portrait avant la lettre. Il provient de la bibliothèque d'Antoine Augustin Renouard qui a fait ajouter à l'exemplaire un chapitre imprimé avec les mêmes caractères. On lit une note, très probablement de la main de Renouard : "à la fin du cinquième volume est l'éloge de Montaigne, par Mr. Droz, qui se trouve dans l'Art d'être heureux, et dont cet exemplaire a été tiré exprès de surplus pour être placé à la suite de l'ouvrage dont il fait l'éloge." Il a fait relier dans cet exemplaire 6 portraits : outre le portrait de Tardieu, un portrait de Richelieu (T. I, IV), un portrait de Montaigne (I, VII), deux autres portraits en tête du tome 3 (dont un dessiné et gravé par Dupont) et un autre par Saint-Aubin en tête du tome 4. Antoine Augustin Renouard (1765-1853) a été libraire, éditeur et grand bibliophile. Il est aussi l'auteur des "Annales de l'imprimerie des Alde". Sa dernière bibliothèque de 3604 lots s'est vendue en 1853 en 25 vacations. Des rousseurs. Tous les exemplaires passés en vente ces dernières années sont décrits comme roussis.

        The Emigrant's Guide to the Western and Southwestern States and Territories: Comprising a Geographical, and Statistical Description of the States of Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, Kentucky, and Ohio; the Territories of Alabama, Missouri, and Michigan; and the Western Parts of Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New York..

      New York: Kirk and Merein, 1818. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. 8 vo, pp. [6], 298, xiii (index), with a large folding map (Map of the United States Including Louisiana, partially colored in outline), a folding chart (Chart of Mobile, Perdido, and Pensacola Bays), and a diagram showing the method for surveying and selling public lands. Original calf binding, scuffed. Map has repairs to verso and deep folding creases; light toning to second half of text, front joint starting, but generally clean and sound. William Darby was an American geographer and cartographer who emigrated from Pennsylvania to Mississippi Territory in 1799. The work contains detailed information on the routes (both land and water) and distances between settlements, natural resources, topography, climate, etc. Wagner Camp (14b): "Although written with an emphasis on the more settled regions of Ohio and Mississippi valleys, this guide contains data about the trans-Mississippi country, based only in part on previous accounts. Darby was for years a surveyor in Louisiana; his geographical interest and personal knowledge from various explorations in Texas, Louisiana, and along the Canadian border gave him a voice in the delineation of the boundaries of the United States in both areas. Texas, he wrote in 1817, is 'justly claimed' by the United States, but because 'its territory is not yet politically under the authority of the United States,' immigration should not be encouraged as yet." A note in the interior of Texas on the map reads "this part of the Provincias Internas is but imperfectly known; no scientific traveller having ever explored, the wide range from St. Antonio de Behar to Red River." Howes D-61; Sabin 19527; Hubach, p. 51; Wheat (Transmississippi West) II, 326.

        The Diseases of the Heart and the Aorta.

      FIRST EDITION. G&M 2760. Stokes?s name is associated with the phenomenon known as Cheyne-Stokes respiration. On pp. 320-327 in this book he gives a lucid account of the periodic type of breathing discussed by John Cheyne in 1818, but Cheyne did not associate any diagnostic importance with the syndrome. Stokes in this book also advocated pursuance of a system of graduated muscular exercises to aid in the removal of cardiac debility, especially among younger persons. The book is additionally famous for its accurate descriptions of pericarditis, valvular diseases, and weakening of the heart in typhus fever. It also includes the first description of paroxysmal tachycardia (p. 161).Stokes was a major figure in the Irish school. His reputation was made by his book on diseases of the chest, and he published the first systematic treatise on the use of the stethoscope.Willius & Keys, Cardiac Classics, pp. 484-489.

        Laon & Cythna;

      London: printed for Sherwood, Neely & Jones; and C. and J. Ollier, by B. McMillan, 1818. or, the Revolution of the Golden City: A Vision of the Nineteenth Century. In the stanza of Spenser. Octavo. Finely bound c.1900 in tan full morocco, spine in compartments with gilt titles direct, spine and sides elaborately gilt with Art Nouveau floral design, gilt-tooled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, others untrimmed. Front joint just starting from bottom, very small nicks to corners, spine very slightly darkened, leaves evenly browned but otherwise all in excellent condition. True first edition, very scarce, in excellent condition almost entirely untrimmed (but for gilt top edge) and in a fine Art Nouveau binding. This copy is in the second state, without the rare flyleaf quoting Pindar which (as in all but c.12 known copies). The Errata slip is present in this copy, with the notice that, "the author deems it right to state, that the following Errata are not attributable to the printer", in a catty allusion to printer Buchanan McMillan's numerous unsolicited corrections. It was Shelley's complaint as to this liberty taken by the printer that led C. and J. Ollier, Shelley's publishers, to read, for the first time, quite what they had agreed to publish, noting not only the incendiary political and philosophical content, but more urgently the fact that an incestuous relationship between brother and sister was central to the story. London was alive with gossip about Shelley living with both Mary Godwin and her half-sister Claire Clairmont, and in contemporary usage, such a ménage was termed incest (St. Clair, The Godwins and the Shelleys, p. 432.) At the publishers' request, Shelley then made alterations to those copies which had not already been issued, removing any hint of incest, and gave it the new title The Revolt of Islam, issuing the original sheets with 26 cancelled leaves and a new title leaf (some of which were misdated 1817). This however is the rare true first edition, entirely unexpurgated, and lacking only the almost inaccessibly rare flyleaf with a quotation from Pindar (there are an estimate 12 copies in the first state). Interestingly, Shelley has, in the final paragraph of his characteristically defiant preface to the present text, given an explanation (cancelled in the expurgated edition) for the incestuous plot that points less towards his domestic ménage and more towards his demotic mission: "In the personal conduct of my Hero and Heroine, there is one circumstance which was intended to startle the reader from the trance of ordinary life. It was my object to break through the crust of those outworn opinions on which established institutions depend. I have appealed therefore to the most universal of all feelings, and have endeavoured to strengthen the moral sense, by forbidding it to waste its energies in seeking to avoid actions which are only crimes of convention. It is because there is so great a multitude of artificial vices, that there are so few real virtues." This is a splendidly bound copy of the true first edition of Shelley's longest poem, through which he truly began to work out his own vision for the world (Queen Mab, for all its characteristic enthusiasm, had essentially been a versification of Godwin's Political Justice, and Alastor more of a personal introspection), and in which the poet, as he writes in the dedication lines to Mary, "from that secret store, / wrought linkéd armour for my soul before / it might walk forth to war among mankind.

The fold-out map in excellent, very clean condition with only a very fine sign of a dampstain to the very outer margin. Rare ! And even rarer in this firm condition of the bindings ! William Mariner (1791–1853) was an Englishman who lived in Tonga from 29 November 1806 to (probably) 8 November 1810. He later published Tonga Islands, an account of his experiences that is now one of the major sources of information on Tonga, before it was significantly influenced by European culture, Christianity or colonisation. As a teenager, Mariner was a ship's clerk aboard the British privateer Port au Prince. In 1806, while it was anchored off the Tongan island of Lifuka, in the Ha'apai island group, Port au Prince was seized by a chief named Finau Ulukalala. Most of the crew were killed during the capture of the ship, but the chief spared Mariner and a few crewmates. Mariner lived in Tonga for four years. After returning to England, Mariner he dictated a detailed account of his experiences, a description of Tongan society and culture, and a grammar and dictionary of the Tongan language. The Port-au-Prince was an English private ship of war, a vessel of 500 tons armed with 24 long nine and twelve pound guns as well as 8 twelve pound carronades on the quarter deck. She carried a "letter of marque" and this document permitted her Captain and crew to become pirates against the enemies of England, primarily France and Spain. In payment for their pirate raids any plunder they seized was to be their own. Commanded by Captain Duck she sailed for the New World on 12 February 1805 having been given a twofold commission by her owner, a Mr. Robert Bent of London. Their primary goal was to attack the Spanish ships of the New World capturing gold and valuables but if she failed in that task her secondary objective was to sail into the Pacific in search of whales to be rendered for their oil. The Atlantic crossing was rough but uneventful and she lay off the coast of Brazil by April and then rounded Cape Horn in July before proceeding north in search of Spanish Galleons laden with treasure. They captured a number of ships but most yielded little in the way of valuables and at times the men began to get disgruntled by capturing what they contemptuously referred to as dung barges. The Port-au-Prince was now also on the lookout for whales as well but, although catching a few, experienced little success in this endeavour. After leaving Hawaii in September under the command of Mr. Brown, she intended to make port at Tahiti but missed the target and instead sailed westward for the Tonga Islands. She arrived in Ha'apai on 9 November 1806, almost two years since departing England and after numerous engagements, leaking badly and having already witnessed the death of her captain. She was laden with the spoils of war and cargo amounting to approx twelve thousand dollars plus a considerable amount of copper plus silver and gold ore. A large quantity of silver candlesticks, chalices, incense pans, crucifixes and images complemented the treasure. She weighed anchor, in seven fathoms water off the North West Point of Lifuka Island, for what was destined to be the last time. A number of chiefs visited the ship on the evening of her arrival and brought with them b [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Anatomie générale, précédée des Recherches physiologiques sur la vie et la mort

      1818 - 2 volumes, Paris, Ladrange & Lheureux, 1818, in-8, 2 volumes, [4]-IV-[2]-XI-[1]-270-[2]-432 + 832 pages, portrait-frontispice et 2 tableaux dépliants, demi-basane de l'époque, dos lisses ornés aux urnes, tranches jonquille, Nouvelles éditions de deux des ouvrages, parus à l'origine en 1800, qui établirent la célébrité de François-Xavier Bichat, avec le Traité de membranes : l'Anatomie générale appliquée à la physiologie et à la médecine, "pierre angulaire du savoir médical moderne" (En Français dans le texte), et les Recherches physiologiques sur la vie et la mort. Bichat a organisé une vision générale de la physiologie humaine totalement nouvelle et révolutionnaire. Il est le fondateur de ce que que Claude Bernard appellera la physiologie anatomique ; au lieu d'étudier les organes par région, il les étudiait par rapport à leur fonction, qu'il démontrait par des expériences sur animaux vivants. Avec la Révolution française, il put également accéder à des cadavres fraîchement guillotinés qui lui permirent d'aller plus loin dans ses recherches et de démontrer, notamment, que l'excitation cardiaque par l'électricité ne se produit que lorsque le coeur est stimulé par un contact direct.

Bound to an attractive contemporary style in 20th-century tan full smooth morocco, spines gilt-ruled in compartments with two black morocco title labels to each, sides bordered with a double gilt rule, marbled endpapers, blind-rolled turn-ins, speckled edges. Housed in a brown morocco-backed bookform folding case. Half title to volume 2, advertisements at the rear of volumes 2 and 3. Mild offset toning and some very light spotting, top edges somewhat dust-darkened, but an excellent copy, well-margined for a later binding, which is appealingly done to style. First edition of Mary Shelley's masterpiece of Gothic horror and early polemic against the hubris of modern science. Written when Mary Shelley was only 19, Frankenstein is not the only memorable remnant of that "wet, ungenial summer" of 1816 at the Villa Diodati (Polidori's The Vampyre has the same origin), but it is certainly the most famous. Frankenstein effortlessly transcends the typical Gothic novel: ruined castles, graveyards and charnel houses appear only briefly or in the distance, and diabolical agency is replaced by human, natural and scientific powers. And unlike most Gothic novels Frankenstein is modern rather than mock-medieval: Mary Shelley managed to reconcile the Prometheus theme, then occupying both her husband Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron, with the most up-to-date scientific preoccupations, anticipating many of the themes of science fiction. The book's moral and philosophical seriousness, sign-posted by its epigraph "Did I request thee, Maker, from my clay / To mould me man? Did I solicit thee / From darkness to promote me?" from Paradise Lost (which the Shelleys were reading together in Bath when much of Frankenstein was written), pitches it still further above the level of gothic sensationalism. Her husband's editorial hand has been noted in various places, particularly in the unsigned preface describing the circumstances of its origin and in the plangent cadences of the closing paragraph.

Original full brown sheep with a gilt lettered black morocco spine label. Binding rubbed & scuffed, corners bumped, hinges cracked, lacking first blank page & two blanks following the last page of text, folding plates a bit tattered, previous owner's bookplate at front pastedown, old ink initials at title page & at the upper margin of a few pages, pencilled notes in the lower margin of p. 436 & at the rear pastedown, toned, foxed (heavily at times), occasional stains, withal, a servicable copy. Haynes/ Virginiana 6323 (noting 2 plates, 1 folding); Shaw & Shoemaker 44062. This copy with errors in paging: 251-253 numbered 151-153. An uncommon title which was quite probably issued with three plates rather than four, OCLC locates 21 copies (indicating 4 plates) though researching specific institutions shows a variance in actual plate collation. The plates present include "Hunting Horse Horace", & one depicting the skeleton of the horse, the other the musculature, both folding. Jonathan Foster published the third newspaper in Winchester & thoughtfully forwarded an early edition to Thomas Jefferson. Additionally, Foster operated a school.

Contemporary marbled boards, skilfully rebacked and recornered with brown calf, spines gilt in compartments. Lacking half-titles. Slight wear to corners, boards lightly rubbed, light spotting to text blocks; mild damp staining to bottom of gutter of Volume IV. A very good set. First edition of Jane Austen's final published work, pairing her last completed novel with the light-spirited satire which was probably the first full-length novel she wrote. Her brother Henry's biographical notice, dated 13 December 1817, though generally reckoned to be too lavish with unqualified praise, is the first acknowledgement in print of Jane Austen as the author of her six novels. From the collection of renowned Women's Literature collector Sarah Peter.
