        Narrative of a Journey in the Interior of China, and of a Voyage To and From That Country, in the Years 1816 and 1817; containing an account of the most interesting transactions of Lord Amherst's embassy to the court of Pekin, and observations .......

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme & Brown, 1819.

Three small Penzance Library stamps on the title page, partially removed, but no other markings. {Possibly lacking one plate ? This frequently occurs in this work.} [One of the main accounts of the period, during which a large number of plants were both discussed and collected. Clarke Abel, 1780 - 1826) was a British surgeon and naturalist. He accompanied Lord Amherst on his mission to China as the embassy's chief medical officer and naturalist, on the recommendation of Sir Joseph Banks. The mission was Britain's second unsuccessful attempt to establish diplomatic relations with China and involved travelling to the capital Pekin (Beijing) and the famous botanical gardens of Fa Tee near Canton. While in China, Abel collected specimens and seeds of the plant that carries his name, Abelia chinensis. However a shipwreck and an attack by pirates on the way back to his home in Britain caused him to lose all of his specimens. The book gives a detailed account of the collection's misfortunes. Fortunately, he had left some specimens with Sir George Staunton at Canton, who was kind enough to return them to him; living specimens of the Chinese Abelia that we know today were later introduced by Robert Fortune in 1844. In March 1819 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. Abel was the first Western scientist to report the presence of the orangutan on the island of Sumatra; the Sumatran Orangutan Pongo abelii is named for him. He went on to become the surgeon-in-chief to Lord Amherst when the earl was appointed Governor-general of India. Abel was also the first scientist to describe the Chiru or Tibetan Antelope, in 1826.]. Second edition. Half-Leather. Good.

        Kloster Limburg bei Bad Dürkheim, darunter eine Landschaftsstudie, 1819/23.

      - Bleistift, auf chamoisfarbenem Velin, rechts bezeichnet und datiert „Kloster Limburg den 19ten Aug.", links oben am Rand bezeichnet „3 Gegenden 2 Paar.". 43:27,3 cm. – Verso: Blick in ein Flußtal. Bleistift. – Insgesamt leicht fleckig. Bisher konnte nicht geklärt werden, wann Fries die Haardt und das Nahetal besuchte, um die Vorzeichnungen für einige Kupferstiche zu schaffen, die um 1820 in einem Ansichtenwerk im Verlag von Joseph Engelmann in Heidelberg erschienen sind. Es wäre möglich, daß die vorliegende Zeichnung auf einer eigenen, kurzen Reise von Heidelberg aus im August 1819 entstanden ist. Denn im folgenden Jahr 1820 kehrte Fries Ende Juli aus München nach Heidelberg zurück und wird nicht gleich wieder im August auf Reise gegangen sein. Die Zeichnung könnte so eine Lücke in der zeitlichen Abfolge der Reisen von Ernst Fries schließen. Vgl. Wechssler WV 788-804 (Arbeiten anderer Künstler nach Vorlagen von Ernst Fries); Lehmann, S. 211-213, Abb. 142-147. Zur Klosterruine Limburg vgl.

        Rocca di Mezzo, vicino a Civitella mit Blick auf die Monti Ruffi. In der Ferne das Bergdorf Rocca Canterano, um 1819.

      - Feder in Grau, grau laviert, über leichter Bleistiftskizze, auf cremefarbenem Velin. Darstellungsgröße 15,5:21,4 cm. – Darüber: Zwei Landschaftsskizzen von der Rheinreise, Juni 1819. Bleistift. 23:26 cm. – Verso: Zwei einzelne Bäume. Bleistift, einer bezeichnet „In der Natur viel dichter als da". Blattgröße 43,5:25,9 cm. Bei der italienischen Landschaft hat Fries die 1810 datierte Radierung „Rocca di Mezzo, vicino a Civitella" von Joseph Anton Koch (1768-1839) als Vorlage benutzt, Blatt 6 der 20-Blatt-Folge „Römische Ansichten". Wechssler erwähnt im WV, S. 19, ein großformatiges Skizzenbuch, das sich in Fries’schem Familienbesitz befand und aufgelöst wurde. Es enthielt Zeichnungen von den Reisen Mai/Juni 1822 nach Heilbronn, Stuttgart, Waldenburg und Hechingen und weiter Anfang August 1822 an den Genfer See und ins Wallis. Nur wenige Zeichnungen daraus sind bekannt. Das oben beschriebene Blatt dürfte aus diesem Skizzenbuch stammen, das auch Gravenkamp kannte und aufführte. Zum Zeichnen nach fremden Vorlagen schreibt Wechssler WV, S. 20: „Die Entwicklung vom Zeichnen nach Vorlagen zu selbständigen Arbeiten vollzieht sich in den Jahren 1818- 1823. Es hat den Anschein, dass ihn sowohl Landschaft als auch Bildnis- und Figurenzeichnen gleichermaßen beschäftigen." Ein weiteres Beispiel dafür, daß Fries nach einer in Grau und Braun lavierten Federzeichnung von der Hand Kochs gearbeitet hat, belegt eine Lithographie (1820/21) mit der Darstellung der „Via mala" (WV 784, Abb. S. 20). Selbst lernte Fries die Landschaft um Olevano und Civitella im September 1824 kennen, als er in und um Olevano unterwegs war (vgl. Wechssler WV 189-192.). Dort traf er seine Freunde Adrian Ludwig Richter, Carl Wagner, die Brüder Rist, Carl Wilhelm Götzloff, Ernst Ferdinand Oehme und Carl Gustav Boerner.

        A Voyage of Discovery Made Under the Orders of the Admiralty, in His Majesty's Ships Isabella and Alexander, for the Purpose of Exploring Baffin's Bay, and Inquiring into the Probability of a North-West Passage.

      A lovely, collectable condition copy of this elusive first edition. All plates and fold out charts and maps present. Errata slip present. Some quite stunning fold out colour illustrations which must have been hand coloured. There is a little browning/foxing to some of the plates and pages but really this is not at all severe. There is evidence of a name inscription which has been erased from the front end paper, causing the marbling to be rubbed off in that small area. The front board is present but detached and the head of the spine has been pulled away resulting in loss. The book would benefit from restoration work/rebinding. The boards appear to be the original marbled with quarter leather spine and corner tips. The spine title block is missing but the titles are still evident underneath where this would have been.

        Voyage dans Le Levant en 1817 et 1818.

      Paris:: Imprimerie Royale, 1819., 1819. 2 volumes. Text (sm. 8vo.) and Atlas folio. TEXT VOLUME: 8vo. [xii], 460 pp. Half-title ["se trouve chez Delaunay, libraire Palais-Royal, no. 243"], title vignette of the Armes Royale, dedication to the king, list of plates, with the rare folding engraved plate "Plan du Saint Sepulcre à Jerusalem"; plate is torn and mended (some Kozo, etc.). Contemporary quarter calf, paste-paper overs boards, red morocco gilt-stamped spine label, spine with gilt bands. ATLAS VOLUME: Large oblong folio. [54 cm]: [2] pages, 78 leaves of plates (70 lithographs after Carle Vernet, Fragonard, Isabey, Pierre Prevost, and Forbin, 8 aquatints by Debucourt after Forbin, 2 engravings by Englemann and Debucourt after Forbin), plans (etchings). Original printed cover-title mounted as a title, "Voyage dans Le Levant en 1817 et 1818 » on rouge colored paper. Handsomely bound in modern half dark calf, gilt-stamped spine, original spine preserved, early green cloth over boards, decorative endpapers. Bookplate of the Prince of Lichtenstein library [Ex-libris Liechtenstensteininis] of Vienna. Handsome set. FIRST EDITION OF BOTH PARTS, which were issued separately and thereby seldom found together. Brunet notes the Atlas was printed in 325 copies - this is repeated by Khatib, who explains the early publishing history thusly: "Two editions, one marked "Seconde", were issued in 1819 with the text in 8vo and the folio plates to be purchased separately." Dedicated to Louis XVIII (1755-1824). The year-long voyage went to Greece, Syria, and Egypt. Forbin had obtained permission to acquire specimens from Egypt for French museums. Forbin was accompanied by the artist Pierre Prevost (1764-1823) and a very young engineer de Louis Maurice Adolphe Linant de Bellefonds (1799-1883). The voyage was sponsored by Louis XVIII, the last king of France, who had himself lost many of royal powers subsequent to Napoleon's escape from Elba in 1815 and the 100 day campaign to retake the throne. Napoleon quickly gained support from military veterans still loyal to him. His campaign famously ended at Waterloo on June 18, 1815. This work is famous for the large number of large and remarkable plates. They were executed with the highest production methods and involved a number of qualified artists. Most "of the plates are scenes of Egypt and Palestine, after drawings by Forbin, Isabey, Prevost, Fragonard and Carle Vernet. The aquatint plates are all after drawings by Forbin himself." The travelers came first to Melos, Athens, Constantinople, Smyrna, Ephesus, Acre, Jafa, Jerusalem (noting the Temple of Solomon), The Dead Sea, Jordan, Cairo, Luxor, and Thebes. "In 1816 Forbin became Director of Museums in Paris and in August 1817 he made a semi-official year-long voyage to the Levant to purchase antiquities for the Louvre. He travelled to Athens, Constantinople, Asia Minor, Syria and Palestine. From Jaffa he went overland to Alexandria and visited Egypt. This book was the result; it was one of the first important French books to use lithography on a grand scale, and the standard of production is equal to that of Napoleon's Description de l'Egypte or Dominique Vivant Denon's Voyage dans la Basse et la Haute Egypte, 2 vols." - Khatib, p. 152-3.

        A critical examination of the first principles of geology; in a series of essays. [First edition].

      Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown 1819 - London, octavo, iv, [ii], 336 p. and text illustrations. ***CONTENT: George Bellas Greenough (1778-1855) was a pioneering English geologist best known for his geological maps of England and Wales. He was well read and very active in scientific circles, and was co-founder and first president of the Geological Society of London. This volume is his most significant work, in which he reviews several ideas of his predecessors and contemporaries, including: stratification, the figure of the Earth, "formations", the order of succession in rocks, the history of strata (as deduced from their fossil contents), mineral veins, and more. Herein, Greenough was an eloquent critic, but his contemporaries were likewise critical of his refusal to consider the chronologic, stratigraphic and paleoenvironmental value of fossils. He was also skeptical of the concepts of 'stratum' and 'formation' as employed by William Smith. Nevertheless, Greenough was widely respected for his intellect and advocacy in the cause of geological studies. ***CONDITION: This is a VG copy in contemporary 3/4 calf and marbled boards, with a gilt-lettered and decorated backstrip. The covers are sound but rubbed, with erosion to the head and foot of the spine; backstrip gilt worn but legible. Joints and hinges starting but holding, binding very firm. Save for the very occasional bit of foxing, the text pages are near pristine: fresh, clean and bright. The only evidence of previous ownership is the inked signature of Jer[emiah] Van Rensselaer on the title page and his penciled annotations in the text. This is a complete, internally handsome copy of a scarce and classic treatise. BMNH 730. Challinor 92. Ward and Carozzi 951. International shipping will be extra for this book, but only at my cost.

        Abbildung und populäre Beschreibung von acht und vierzig Giftpflanzen, für Jedermann, der nicht Botaniker ist.

      Augsburg: Abraham Geiger, 1819. hardcover. Sehr gut. Hrsgg. in der Martin Engelbrecht'schen Kunsthandlung in Augsburg. Mit 48 kolorierten Pflanzentafeln (davon eine gefaltet), eine gefalt. tabellarische Tafel und 3 zusätzlichen kolor. Tafeln mit Tierdarstellungen. Insg. 52 Tafeln, davon 51 koloriert. 4to. Zinnoberroter Pappband der Zeit mit etwas Rückenvergoldung, geprägtem Rückenschild und Rotschnitt, 3 n.n. Bll., 44 num. Bll., S. 45-48, 5 Bll. Nissen BBI 1011. Plesch Coll. 410. MykoLibri 985. Vgl. Pritzel 4510. Zweite Ausgabe, die erste erschien 1817 in 12 Heften. - Das mit prachtvollen Tafeln ausgestattete Werk über Giftpflanzen ist ein schönes Beispiel für den drucktechnischen Übergang vom Kupferstich auf den Steindruck. Die ersten 12 Tafeln sind kolorierte Lithographien, die übrigen Kupferstiche. "Die große Tradition des von Kupferstechern illustrierten Buches (in Augsburg) ging endgültig mit den naturkundlichen Werken von Jacob Hübner, Gottlieb Tobias Wilhelm und Carl Christian Wilhelm Juch zu Ende" (Gier/Janota, Augsburger Buchdruck und Verlagswesen, S. 515). Juch (1772-1821) war Arzt, Chemiker und Pharmazeut, Schüler von Trommsdorff, Verfasser verschiedener naturkundlicher und pharmazeutischer Werke. Ab 1801 war er Prof. für Medizin und Chemie an der Universität Altdorf bei Nürnberg, später unterrichtete er in München und Augsburg. Bekannt wurde er durch seine kommentierte Übersetzung der "Pharmacopoea Borussica". - Auf dem fliegenden Vorsatzblatt eine ganzseitig angelegte Widmung von 1820, in schöner zeitgenössischer Handschrift, für den Lehrer Joseph Anton Geist an der "höhern Bürgerschule in Neustadt Kempten". Geist wurde in der Region als Autor des vielfach aufgelegten "Briefbüchlein für Werktagsschulen" bekannt. Verfasst wurde die Widmung vom "Koenigl. Baier. Local-Schul-Commissair u. Stadtpfarrer Joan Georg Nepomuc Gasser". - Beim Bezug des Einbands handelt es sich wohl um ein einfaches Buntpapier, das mit Zinnoberrot überstrichen wurde (Struktur scheint noch durch). Ecken etwas bestoßen, die Außengelenke teils mit Abschabungen. Die Tafeln alle sauber, nur ganz vereinzelt minimal fleckig. Die gefaltete Tafel 45 mit kleinem Einriß an der unteren Falzung. Textseiten stellenweise ganz leicht braun- oder fingerfleckig.
