        Plantes de la France, décrites et peintes d'après nature.

      - Paris, chez l'Auteur, 1819-22. 10 volumes. Royal-8vo (257 x 200mm). With 10 lithographed portraits of botanists and 1000 fine stipple engraved plates printed in colours. Contemporary half calf, gilt ornamented spines, with gilt lettering. A uniformly bound copy of this profusely illustrated flora of France. It is rare to find the work complete in 10 volumes, mostly the first 4 are found and not the continuation. The first 4 volumes are here, as is often the case, in the second issue of 1822. "It is not until the beginning of the nineteenth century that precise scientific drawing commences to characterize French flower plates but with the transition the French artists such as Jaume St. Hilaire, Bessa, Turpin and Redouté rose almost immediately to world pre-eminence. These names are collector's high points" (Dunthorne p. 4). Blunt considers Jaume Saint-Hilaire a distinguised botanist and praises his 'Plantes de France' with its 1000 pleasant little stipple plates. Jaume Saint-Hilaire studied flower painting under van Spaendonck in Paris.Nissen BBI, 989; Great Flower Books p. 61; Dunthorne 211. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Arundel Castle] To His Grace The Duke of Norfolk This View of Arundel Castle (taken from the Mill on the Brighton Road) Is with permission most respectfully Dedicated by His Graces very obedient Servant William Scott

      Published by William Scott, Brighton & Colnaghi & Co, London 1819 - Colour-printed aquatint on fine wove paper. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, mild mat burn, and a small brown spot in the bottom margin. A picturesque view of the stately family seat of the Duke of Norfolk. Situated on the River Arun in West Sussex and surrounded by lush parkland, Arundel Castle has been the ancestral home of the Dukes of Norfolk and Earls of Arundel for centuries. It was built by Roger de Montgomery, Earl of Arundel, in the eleventh century and was later appropriated in 1102 by King Henry I, who gave the castle and its surrounding lands to his second wife, Alice de Louvain. Arundel passed matrilineally through the d'Albini and Fitzlan families in the thirteenth century to the powerful Howard family in the 15th century, in whose possession it has remained virtually uninterrupted to the current day. After weathering besiegement by Cromwell's troop during the Civil War (1642-51), the castle and dukedom of Norfolk were permanently restored to the Earls of Arundel by Charles II. Parts of the castle were repaired in the eighteenth century, and more extensive restorations were made during the 1800s by Harry, the 15th Duke of Norfolk.

Partly written in response to an anonymous pamphlet entitled Facts Illustrative Of The Treatment Of Napoleon Bonaparte which had attempted to vindicate the actions of Governor Lowe in relation to allegations against him made by O’Meara. O’Meara had refused to pass information to Lowe regarding Napoleon, whom he attended as physician at St. Helena. Lowe insisted that O’Meara be dismissed from his post, and this was effected when independent evidence of O’Meara’s intrigues reached Lord Bathurst. When O’Meara sent a letter to the Admiralty instinuating that Napoleon’s life was not safe in Lowe’s hands, his name was stricken from the list of naval surgeons.

      - Zweite Auflage. - Dresden, in der Arnoldschen Buchhandlung, 1819, 8°, 374, (2) pp., Halbledereinband der Zeit. Zweite Auflage, sehr seltene erste Abdruck!*) - - "Bei der zweiten Auflage 1819 ging dann Hahnemann - rein äußerlich betrachtet - schon auf der Titelseite einen Schritt weiter; er nannte sein Werk schlankweg "Organon der Heilkunst". Damit wollte er zum Ausdruck bringen, daß er keine andere Heilkunde anerkenne, als die seinige, und daß nur sie die einzige und wahre Kunst sei." - - "Auch das Motto änderst er. De ersten Auflage hatte er das Gellertsche Wort mit auf den Weg gegeben: "Die Wahrheit, die wir alle nötig haben, die uns als Menschen glücklich macht, ward von der weissen Hand, die sie uns zugedacht , nur leicht verdeckt, nicht tief vergraben." - - "Bei der zweiten Auflage aber setzte er die Worte "Aude sapere" - "wage, zu Wissen" oder wie Hahnemann es kurz und treffend einmal selbst verdeutsch hat: "Habe das Herz, Einsicht zu haben" - auf die Titelseite. Damit wollte er seine Fachgenossen aufrütteln und ihnen zurufen: "Fasset nur erst den herzhaften Entschluß, gewinnt's über euch und bebet nicht vor den Schwierigkeiten zurück." Richard Haehl.

        ALS - An Hufeland gerichteter eigenhändiger Brief des Kronprinzen und späteren Königs Christian VIII. von Dänemark (1786-1848).

      - Kassel 4.XI.1819. 2 Seiten 4°. Leicht gebräunt, kleine Einrisse mit säurefreiem Transparentpapier sauber hinterlegt. Der dänische Kronprinz bittet Hufeland um Rat, wo er mit seiner kränkelnden Frau Karoline geb. Prinzessin Karoline von Holstein-Sonderburg-Augustenburg den Winter verbringen solle. - - "Hr. Statsrath Hufeland! Ich kann nicht unterlassen auch von hier aus, so wie meine Frau es schon aus Frankfurt gethan haben wird, unsre Verlegenheit zu erwähnen keine Bestimmung wegen den Winteraufenthalt oder einer etwaigen Rejse fassen zu können bis wir die Antwort des Hr. Statsraths erhalten haben. Wir wissen dass Ihre Abwesenheit diese verspäthet hat, aber es ist uns von großer Wichtigkeit keine Zeit zu verlieren da der Winter herannaht und einer jeden Rejse beschwerlich macht, besonders wenn Sie den Winter Aufenthalt in ein milderes Clima nicht nöthig hielten und wir uns gegen Norden wenden sollten. Nachdem was meine Frau Ihnen aber geschrieben haben wird trage ich beynahe keinen Zwejfel daß Sie einen Winter Aufenthalt in ein gemässigteres Clima als für die Gesundheit meiner Frau am zuträglichsten anrathen, besonders da Sie viel Zutrauen darinn setzt und es auch von Copenhagen gewilfahret ist auf den Fall daß es als nothwendig gerathen wird. Den Ort des Aufenthalts wird demnach seyn, und ich vermuthe das Florenz oder Neapel nicht als unzweckmässig angesehen werden wird - fals wir auch mit dem südlichen Frankreich anfangen sollten. - - Ich wollte übrigens wünschen daß Sie meine Frau sähen; die Cur in Ems hat Ihr auffallend wohl gethan und Sie hat ein sehr blühendes Ansehn, nur Zutrauen an die Gesundheit fehlt und rejtzbare Nerven bringen oft eine gar zu melancolische Stimmung hervor - die nur durch Zerstreuhung überwunden werden kann. - - Meine Bitte ist dass Sie meiner Frau unverzüglich Ihre Ansicht eröfnen mögen, der Brief wird Ihr in Frankfurt am Mayn antreffen. - - Meine Gesundheit läst Gottlob nichts zu wünschen übrig. - - Von Ihre Famille Hr. Staatsrath, wünsche ich erinnert zu seyn indem ich mit ausgezeichneter Hochachtung verbleibe Ihr - - freundwilligster - - Christian Frederik - Prinz v Dännemark" - - - Der für die Naturwissenschaften ebenso wie für die Künste begeisterte Prinz besuchte in Kassel seine Schwester Charlotte, die mit dem Landgrafen Wilhelm von Hessen-Kassel verheiratet war. 1839 folgte er als Christian VIII. seinem Vetter Friedrich VI. auf dem dänischen Thron, mit Prinzessin Karoline war er seit 1815 in zweiter Ehe verheiratet. - - Christoph Wilhelm Hufeland (1762-1836), einer der angesehensten Ärzte seiner Zeit - wie auch dieser Brief belegt -, war seit 1809 Professor für spezielle Pathologie und Therapie an der neugegründeten Friedrich Wilhelms-Universität in Berlin und seit 1810 Staatsrat in der Medizinalsektion.

        Vue du grand Bend, dans la forêt de Belgrade]

      P. Didot l'ainé, Paris 1819 - Etching with engraving by the Pillement sons and Née after Melling with later professional hand-coluring. Proof before title. Very good condition. A fine view of an aqueduct in the Belgrade Forest of Constantinople, from Melling's grand work 'Voyage Pittoresque de Constantinople et des rives du Bosphore'. Born in Lorraine in 1763, Antoine Ignace Melling, artist and voyager, was trained in architecture and painting. At the age of 19, he went to Constantinople as part of the Russian Ambassador's retinue. After successfully completing several commissions for Hatice Sultan, the sister of Selim III, which included the renovation of her palace at Ortakeï, Melling was employed as the Sultan's architect in 1795. His position as royal architect gave him a privileged opportunity to observe the Ottoman court, and during his eighteen years there, he made many detailed drawings of the sultan's palaces, Ottoman society, and Constantinople and its environs. Within a year of returning to Paris in 1803, Melling published a prospectus for the 'Voyage pittoresque', the first thirteen livraisons of which were published in 1809. He completed the engravings for this work in 1819. Cf. Atabey 798; cf. Blackmer 1105; cf. Brunet III, 1591; cf. Lipperheide 1431. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Travels in England, France, Spain, and the Barbary States in the years 1813-14 and 15.

      Kirk and Mercein; London: John Miller, New York 1819 - First edition, 8vo, pp. vi, [2], 431, [1], xlvii; engraved frontis portrait and 4 engraved plates (3 with contemporary hand-coloring and 1 folding); contemporary full sheep, red morocco label on gilt-paneled spine; spine scuffed and with a small chip out at the top, minor foxing; all else good and sound, with the full compliment of plates in an unusual colored state. Early ownership signature of "Richard L. Schieffelin, New York, 1819." Noah (1785-1851) was a lawyer, playwright, and journalist. He was born in Philadelphia of Portuguese-Jewish ancestry. "In 1813 [he] was appointed consul to Tunis, with a special mission to Algers. He was instructed to negotiate for the release of some Americans held as prisoners by the Algerine pirates. On May 23, 1813, he sailed from Charleston, but his vessel being captured by the British, he was taken to England and detained two months. In October he arrived in Cadiz, where he contracted with Richard R. Keene, an American who had become a Spanish subject, to affect the release of the twelve Americans . After being detained in France and Spain for more than a year, Noah finally arrived in Tunis. On July 30, 1815, he received a letter from James Monroe, secretary of state, revoking his commission and hinting at irregularities in his accounts. Monroe's treatment of Noah was never satisfactorily explained, though his association with Keene, who had been accused of treason, was doubtless detrimental . In January 1817, however, Noah received a letter from the Department o State which vindicated his conduct and returned several thousand dollars due him in the enterprise which resulted in the release of the American captives" (DAB).

        GROUPS OF FLOWERS [GROUPS OF FRUIT . . . SIX BIRDS] DRAWN AND ACCURATELY COLOURED AFTER NATURE, WITH FULL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE YOUNG ARTIST

      London: Published by Thomas McLean, 1819. Second Edition n. Hardcover. With Pleasing Hand-Colored Plates and in Remarkable Condition. 368 x 273 mm (14 1/2 x 10 3/4"). [26] leaves of text, including 3 pp. ads. Three parts in one volume. Second Edition. SPLENDID CONTEMPORARY ENGLISH RED STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, ELABORATELY TOOLED IN GILT AND BLIND, covers with concentric filigree frames in alternating gilt and blind tooling, raised bands, spine panels intricately gilt with two large lozenges formed by rectangular and triangular tools surrounded by curling botanical ornaments, turn-ins gilt, all edges gilt. In an excellent recent matching morocco-lipped slipcase. With 36 very appealing illustrations, being 18 engravings (six flowers, six fruits, six birds), each in two states (monochrome and fully hand colored). Dunthorne 53-55; Sitwell "Fine Bird Books," p. 82. Text leaves with faint mottled foxing and minor browning and off-setting, just a few plates with negligible faint spots or smudges, otherwise A WONDERFUL COPY, THE ORIGINAL SPARKLING BINDING IN AN AMAZING STATE OF PRESERVATION. This is a sumptuously bound copy of three manuals intended to teach the art of drawing to young persons, written by the accomplished botanical painter who produced the renowned "Pomona Britannia." In an earlier career, Brookshaw (ca. 1751-1823) was a successful London cabinet-maker whose painted Neoclassical furniture attracted such titled enthusiasts as the Duke of Devonshire and the Prince of Wales, but he suddenly abandoned this livelihood in the 1790s. Art historian Lucy Wood speculates that the sudden change was prompted by involvement in a financial or sexual scandal, as he also parted company with his (wealthy) wife around this time. He spent a decade living under the name "G. Brown," teaching flower painting to refined young ladies before producing his first manual, "A New Treatise of Flower Painting," which was finally issued under his real name in 1816. The three guides that make up the present volume were intended as a supplement to that work, and they expand the subjects covered to fruit and birds. In the preface to this work, Brookshaw observes that flower painting is a "peculiarly appropriate" accomplishment that may be obtained "without the expense of a Master, a few elementary instructions, and good copies being sufficient." The plates here are more highly finished than the examples in his original "Treatise," in order to "lead the young artist onward in a progressive line of improvement." Fruits and birds are added to offer a new challenge for the pupil, and Brookshaw notes that while avian subjects lack the variety of botanical ones, they compensate with "the inifinite number of attitudes they assume." Our elaborate and immaculately preserved binding is testament that our volume was never used as a drawing manual, but was more likely enjoyed for its own merits as an attractive object.

        ROSALIND AND HELEN, A MODERN ECLOGUE; WITH OTHER POEMS

      London: C. and J. Ollier, 1819. FIRST EDITION n. Hardcover. 229 x 146 mm (9 x 5 3/4"). vii, [i], 92 pp. FIRST EDITION. ELEGANT DARK BLUE-GRAY CRUSHED MOROCCO, RICHLY GILT, BY ZAEHNSDORF (stamp-signed in gilt on front doublure, and with the firm's special stamped oval on the rear free endleaf), covers with a frame of 12 parallel gilt rules, these interweaving in a complex knot design at corners, graceful sprays of leafy branches emanating from the inner and outer corners; raised bands, spine compartments with either an olive branch or a gilt strapwork centerpiece, turn-ins with five parallel gilt fillets, LOVELY IVORY MOROCCO DOUBLURES featuring elaborate whorls of gilt vines bearing azured gilt foliage with inlays of blue-gray morocco, matching blue morocco endleaves, all edges gilt. Verso of front free endleaf with engraved bookplate of Roderick Terry (see below). Granniss 49; Tinker 1897; Ashley Library V, 68. Mild spotting to final text leaf, otherwise only the most trivial imperfections: A VERY FINE COPY, the text with no signs of use, and the animated decorative binding lustrous and unworn. This is an extremely desirable combination of a first edition from a major Romantic poet, a wonderful binding by a renowned English bindery, and a distinguished provenance. Written after Shelley had left England for good and with a preface dated at Naples, December 20, 1818, "Rosalind and Helen" tells the story of two lovers--apparently based on Percy and Mary Shelley--whose love is sacred and justified, though unconsecrated by marriage. One of the "Other Poems" included here is the well-known "Ozymandias," a sonnet exploring the impermanence of grandeur (a piece apparently inspired by the British Museum's acquisition of a massive Egyptian statue of Ramesses II). Even for Zaehnsdorf work, the binding here is an exceptional showpiece, as it contrasts three elegant styles--the tensely interlaced cover frames, the graceful leafy sprays that serve as flanking accompaniment, and the lively and fanciful doublures that represent leaves and buds, but look and feel more like butterflies. Roderick Terry (1849-1933) was an American bibliophile of the first rank who chose beautiful and substantial items with considered discrimination. He collected works in various fields, but his library was especially strong in English literature: he owned the four Folios, along with many important Byron, Lamb, Spenser, and Milton volumes. His library was also strong in Americana, including among its holdings a complete set of autographs of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. Dickinson characterizes him as "a connoisseur in the grand old tradition of the 19th century. His library reflected his eclectic tastes and [his] cultivated good judgment.".

        Letter to Viscount Sidmouth ... on the Transportation Laws, the State of the Hulks, and of the Colonies in New South Wales

      London: J. Ridgway, 1819. Octavo, with a folding table; a fine copy, bound without the half-title in traditional half calf. Bennet's attack on the convict system during Macquarie's administration. Scarce first edition of Bennet's scathing attack on the convict system under Governor Macquarie. This work is one of the more significant contemporary accounts of convict discipline, and is considered an essential document of the Macquarie era, not least as it prompted Macquarie's own response. Henry Bennet (1777-1836) was a British parliamentarian who began a crusade for penitentiary reform that culminated in 1816. His "efforts 'to diminish the sum of human misery' adorn the history of English criminal law. No retributory institution, prison, hulk, penal colony, or penitentiary adequately combined punishment with reformation: he and his select committees exposed them, but to little avail" (ODB). The scope of his inquiry was both broad and enlightened, and included the conflation of political prisoners with felons and the plight of insane persons. Nor surprisingly, the penal colony at New South Wales was attacked as a dumping ground. Bennet writes in his {i Letter to Viscount Sidmouth} 'to get rid of the miserable objects of legal punishment constituted the sole occupation of these administrators of our penal law; and when the grave closed on some, and the distance of half the globe prevented the cries of the others of the victims we banished from our shores from being heard in England , these artificers of death, moral and physical, were satisfied the law had taken its course…' Bennet was manipulated and sometimes misinformed by enemies of Macquarie (including the sanctimonious and vitriolic 'flogging parson' Samuel Marsden). Nonetheless, his {i Letter to Viscount Sidmouth} reflects deep contemporary concern with the problematic role of New South Wales as a place of both punishment and reform.

        Tiresias Was bred by His Grace the Duke of Portland in 1816 was got by Soothsayer out of Sledge. At Epsom he won the Derby Stakes beating 15 others among whom were Sultan, Euphrates, The Dominic, &c

      R. Pollard & Sons, London 1819 - Coloured aquatint. Framed in a lovely birds-eye maple frame with gold slip. Mounted in fine washline mount. In excellent condition with the exception of a minor scuff in the upper left corner of image. A fine portrait of the winner of the 1819 Epsom Derby, engraved by James Pollard from his own original drawing. Tiresias is shown just before a race: his groom administers a last minute tonic (!) while his jockey (W. Clift) takes off an overcoat in preparation to mount, and his trainer looks on proudly. In the background can be seen the grand-stand of the race course (possibly Epsom). James Pollard was the youngest son of the London engraver and print-seller Robert Pollard. He began work at the age of fifteen as a painter but quickly turned to engraving as well. In the 1820s his coaching scenes became both fashionable and lucrative. "A stream of coaching paintings followed, many of which he engraved himself. From 1821, he exhibited a small number of pictures at the Royal Academy and the British Institution, which brought him more patrons. Between 1830 and 1840, Pollard also painted a number of racing pictures and some of the earliest scenes of steeple chasing on purpose-made courses, many recording the prowess of the few professional and more amateur riders of the day.[In all his work Pollard took great pains over accuracy, this is particularly true of his large scale works and] it is Pollard's large racing scenes which really take off and into which one can gaze and discover a microcosm of the turf" (Charles Lane, British Racing Prints, p.146). Lane, British Racing Prints, p.146; cf. Selway, James Pollard 1792-1867, p.47 (variant title); Siltzer p. 214.

        Map of the County of Middlesex, from an Actual Survey made in The Years 1818 & 1819 .

      London, by the Proprietors G. Pringle and C. Greenwood, 1819 - 1260 × 1305 mm, 4 sheets joined, original outline colour, dissected and mounted on linen, marbled endpapers, in original calf bookform box, spine with red morocco label. Two small spots to one section above the engraved area, some wear to box, a very good copy. First Edition, one of the earliest of the fine series of county maps by Christopher Greenwood (1786–1855), whose first publication was a survey of Yorkshire (Wakefield, 1817–18). He moved to London in 1818 and set about mapping England at one inch to one mile, and Wales at three-quarters of an inch to one mile, coming closer to doing so than any other map maker since his fellow Yorkshireman, Christopher Saxton, in the 1570s: "it was an astonishing achievement for a private surveyor in so short a time The majority of these surveys anticipated publication of the sheets of the Ordnance Survey. Even where the Ordnance Survey published their maps first, Greenwood did not slavishly copy the work, but offered a distinctive style and some additional information; not least of the attractions of his maps was the high standard of the engraving" (ODNB).

With an Appendix; Containing the Latest Reports of the State-Prisons or Penitentiaries of Philadelphia, New-York, and Massachusetts; And Other Documents. London: Printed for T. Cadell and W. Davies, 1819. iv, 179, [1], 144 pp. Two folding tables. Octavo (9" x 5-3/4"). Contemporary gray paper boards, contrasting printed paper spine label, untrimmed edges. A few inkstains, moderate rubbing with wear to spine ends and corners, front joint cracked but secure, rear joint starting. Early armorial bookplate and shelf label to front pastedown, most signatures uncut, internally fresh. * Only edition. The early nineteenth century was a watershed period in the history of penology. Many important contributions were made at this time by such luminaries as Bentham, Lieber, Livingston and Tocqueville. Roscoe's work was equally important. Believing that retribution should play no part in criminal jurisprudence, he advocated milder punishments, believing they would reform the criminal. He later published two companion volumes, Additional Observations on Penal Jurisprudence, And the Reformation of Criminals (1823) and Observations on Penal Jurisprudence, And the Reformation of Criminals, Part III (1825).

        The Penn Family

      London, 1819. A charming image, from the golden age of the British mezzotint, of the grand-children of William Penn, the founder and first proprietor of the colony of Pennsylvania This fine group portrait shows the children of Thomas Penn (1702-1775) and his wife Lady Juliana, daughter of Thomas Fermor, the first Earl of Pomfret. The print is dedicated by Turner in 1819 to John Penn, who is included in the portrait as a young child: "This print of the Penn Family is with Permission dedicated to John Penn Esqr,. By his obliged & humble Servt. C. Turner". Just beneath the image are the names and dates of the four subjects: two of whom, John's mother and older sister, had died by the time the print was issued, thus making it a touching memorial, and an emblem of family life as seen from childhood in general. Sir Joshua Reynolds executed the original portrait in the early 1760s when he was at the height of his considerable powers as a Society portrait painter. Charles Turner was an excellent engraver who throughout his memorable career produced an array of wonderful images. Born in Oxfordshire, Turner moved to London in 1795, at which time he was employed by the famous engraver and publisher Boydell. Turner was a versatile engraver working in stipple and aquatint as well as mezzotint. Although, Turner produced a wide array of excellent prints on subjects ranging from topography to genre, his main artistic focus was portraiture. Throughout his career he produced more than six hundred plates, of which about two-thirds were portraits. Turner was a close friend of JMW Turner, and engraved many of the artists' paintings, in addition to engraving some of the plates for 'Liber Studiorum'. As an engraver he combined technical skill with artistic imagination to create beautiful enduring images. O'Donoghue Catalogue of Engraved British Portraits... in the British Museum V, p.50; Whitman 422. Mezzotint over an engraved and etched base, by Turner after Reynolds. Sheet size: 24 9/16 x 17 inches. In good condition. Trimmed to edge of plate mark, small expertly repaired tears at sheet edges.
