He gives the same kind of information for the country to the West and North, but settlement thus far had been so slight that there was not much to report. It is an excellent guide, giving a good contemporary account of the Old Northwest and especially Ohio, and Sabin's characterization 'A little volume of much rarity but of little use' though correct as to rarity, is thoroughly misleading otherwise..." - Streeter, describing a different issue.

        Pompeiana: The Topography, Edifices, and Ornaments of Pompeii (WITH SIGNED LETTER).

      London: Rodwell and Martin, 1817-1819. - Three-quarter leather and marbled boards. 8vo. (xxxi), ad leaf, 273pp, errata. Engraved frontispiece. Illustrated with 77 numbered plates and 3 unnumbered engravings. With original autograph letter from Sir William Gell laid in (circa 170 words). First edition. Gell, an English archaeologist, served as consort to Caroline, consort of the prince of Wales, and accompanied her to Italy in 1814. His work, of which this is the first volume issued, informed Europe about what was being revealed as the ancient Roman towns of Herculaneum and Pompeii were slowly being uncovered. There was a constant demand in Europe for books illustrated with accurate pictures of the site. Gell made drawings on the spot using the camera lucida. Gandy, an architect and landscape designer, was largely responsible for the text. The plates in this volume show tomb interiors, decorated rooms, buildings and ruins, paintings and decoration, and there are also many detailed maps. Many of the plates are folding and there are 2 in color. The autograph letter from Gell, which is undated, is addressed to a Mr. Claxton, thanking him for sending a copy of his book, and mentioning a possible visit. Gell also discusses the political situation, the arrival of the new Secretary of Legation, Mr. Kennedy, Sir Grenville Temple of Malta, trade matters, the current financial situation, visits with friends, and other matters. The letter is written in very small ink script on a small piece of stationary folded over for mailing. All autograph material from Gell is quite rare. Condition-wise the text and plates in this copy are in very good shape with the amount of foxing one would expect for a book of this age. The binding is in rather poor condition with the front cover detached and the spine completely lacking. The leather tips are worn and there is some scuffing and wear to the marbled boards.

A LANDMARK WORK IN THE DIAGNOSIS OF DISEASES OF THE LUNGS AND HEART, ANNOUNCING THE INVENTION OF THE STETHOSCOPE. As head physican at the Necker Hospital in Paris, Laennec's investigations of emphysema, tuberculosis, and other chest diseases inspired him to improvise a technological innovation that would revolutionize physical diagnosis. Although auscultation had been known since the days of Hippocrates, and diagnostic percussion of the chest had most recently been advocated by Auenbruegger, these methods were often inconvenient and were subject to frequent misinterpretation. Experimentation with a rolled paper cylinder led Laennec to invent a more reliable diagnostic instrument, a foot-long tube of cedar wood, which amplified the sounds of his patients' hearts and lungs. Even more impressive than his invention of this brilliantly simple instrument, however, were the uses Laennec made of it: through methodical observation he taught himself the significance of the various sounds produced by the movements of the heart and lungs and drew up a clear and detailed classification system correlating.

Study of an inscription dated A.D. 109, containing the record of loans made in the area of Veleia (northern Italy, near Parma) under the "alimentary institutions" established by Trajan. In this system the imperial treasury lent money to farm owners, and the interest on the loans was paid into a municipal fund that was then used for the support of poor children in the area. The study contains a physical description of the bronze tablet, a discussion of earlier works about it and the author's own opinion, a list of abbreviations used in the inscription and a full transcription.The volume was printed in Parma soon after the death of Giambattista Bodoni (on whom see Updike, @Printing Types II, 163-76). The type of printing, the high-quality paper and the layout all show his influence; Stamperia Carmignani may also have been using some of Bodoni's type.Laid into this copy is an autograph letter from the author in French, dated 6 March 1821 and addressed to "Excellence," i.e. the Morgado de Mateus, D. José Maria de Sousa Botelho, a diplomat famous for his 1817 edition of the @Lusiadas of Camões. In the letter Lama explains the delay in publication of the @Tavola alimentaria and presents a copy of it to the Morgado de Mateus.---- On the inscription see N. Lewis and M. Reinhold, eds., @Roman Civilization Sourcebook II: The Empire no. 89 and cf. @Corpus inscriptionum latinarum XI, 1147. NUC: ICU, ICN, IU. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Repertorium Bibliographicum; or, Some Account of the Most Celebrated British Libraries.

      London: William Clarke 1819 - First edition, small 4to, [vi],[16],vii-xlviii,[2]-138,133*-138*,139-454,449*-454*,455-672,[2]pp., engraved frontispiece and 9 engraved portraits (lightly foxed), 2 woodcuts in the text, cont. calf, neatly rebacked, spine gilt, morocco title label, edges marbled, a nice copy. A survey of the principal public and private libraries in England, listing highlights of the collections and concluding with brief accounts of 30 important English book auctions from the 17th century onwards. William Beckford assisted in the compilation of this work, particularly in the description of his own library at Fonthill. Bound in between pages vi and vii, is an 8-leaf pamphlet attributed to William Beckford: "A Dialogue in the Shades, between William Caxton, Fodius, a bibliomaniac, and William Wynken, Clerk, a descendant of Wynken de Worde: to which is added, the Story of Dean Honywood's Grubs. [In verse.] With explanatory notes, by W. W." [With: "A Ballad entitled Rare Doings at Roxburghe-Hall."], [By William Clarke.] Printed by J. F. Dove, [1819]. Claude Cox, in his introduction to the 1985 reprint, identifies the three characters in the engraving at the head of the title as William Beckford, William Clarke (bookseller), and William Caxton. The 'Dialogue' is a witty and well-versed satire on book collecting of the time. Cox regards the 'Ballad' as being "more straightforward, but not less skilful. The story of the battle between the Earl Spencer and the Marquis of Blandford for the Valdarfer Boccaccio at the Roxburghe sale". Provenance: Charles W. G. Howard (bookplate); Professor Birrell (signed in pencil with small neat stamp on title). [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

The original French and the Portuguese translation appear on facing pages beginning on p. [6]. This work had previously appeared in @Annaes das sciencias, das artes, e das letras; por huma sociedade de portuguezes residentes em Paris, a periodical which began publication in 1818 at the same press, and ceased in 1822 after 16 volumes had appeared.The translator, Father Francisco Manuel do Nascimento, better known by his pseudonym of Filinto Elísio, fled the Inquisition in 1778, living most of the rest of his life in Paris, where he died in 1819. The present work was brought to the press just following his death by J.D. Mascarenhas, Francisco Solano Constancio, and C. Xavier, editors of the @Annaes.@Provinance: The library of the Condes de Linhares, consisting of over 14,000 volumes, was one of the most important ever formed in Portugal. The title, extinguished in the seventeenth century, was revived in the Sousa Coutinho family, one of the most cultured and enlightened of the old Portuguese nobility. The first Conde de Linhares in this line (descendents but not the representatives of the original line), was D. Rodrigo de Sousa Coutinho (Chaves, 1745?Rio de Janeiro, 1812). He was created Conde de Linhares in 1808. His grandson, the third Conde de Linhares in the Sousa Coutinho line, D. Rodrigo de Sousa Countinho (Paris, 1823?Sintra, 1894), married a daughter of the first Duques de Loulé, who through her mother was a grandaughter of D. João VI and D. Carlota Joaquina.

He was a passionate book collector, frequenting auctions and bookshops from the 1860s until shortly prior to his death. Among the sales he attended and purchased at were those of Sir Gubian (1867), the Visconde de Juromenha (1887), José Maria Nepomuceno (1887), José da Silva Mendes and Jorge César de Figanière (1889), and the Condes de Linhares (1895).---- Cf.

        Delphin Classics. 186 Volumes

      Valpy, London, 1819, - VALPY, J. A. (editor and printer) Scriptores latini in usum Delphini, cum notis variorum variis lectionibus, conspectu codicum et editionum et indicibus locupletissimus accurate recensiti. [The Latin Writings after the system of the Delphin Classics, with variorum notes, lists of manuscripts and editions, and with most ample indices carefully collated with the texts.] Londini: Curante et imprimente A. J. Valpy, A. M., 1819 - 1830. One hundred and eighty-six weighty 8vo volumes bound in earlier nineteenth-century full leather with gilt ornamental border within gilt rules to boards and gilt ruling and lettering to spine. Gilt-bordered red morocco title patches to spine. Marbled edges. Ex library but for the most part showing minimal markings internally. Very crisply printed with generous margins, and on very good quality paper. A complete set of the Delphin series of Classical and Late-Classical authors, undertaken with the editorial supervision of George Dyer, and following upon the system of the original seventeenth-century Delphin edition which was prepared during the reign of Louis XIV of France. In re-presenting the Latin Classics Abraham John Valpy (1787-1854) adopted his own critical apparatus, availing himself of the most reliable texts that had so far been put forth to his age, but taking over the latin interpretations, annotations and indices of the 17th c. Delphin volumes. He then supplemented these materials with the notes of the best Variorum editions as well as the literary notes of the late-eighteenth-century Zweibrücken (Bipontine) editions. As Valpy himself stated, 'The Delphin, Bipont, and Variorum Classics are rendered comparatively needless by this comprehensive edition, in which is incorporated, for the first time, the substance of the three; and the value of the Series is more particularly enhanced by the insertion of the Various Readings contained in all the principal editions of each Author.' Text generally good to very good; condition of bindings mixed. All but two of the volumes in this set retain their contemporary bindings, and of these a great many are still very serviceable as such. The states of the bindings of other volumes varies: as from their having partially detached spines, hinges being reinforced by use of adhesive librarian's tape, and spines in their entirety re-backed with this or similar adhesive cloth tape. Two volumes are rebound, having been in the process cropped by the binder. 20,000.00 A detailed list of titles, giving conditions of volumes, may be had on request. In brief the set comprises: Apuleius. Opera Omnia. (In Seven Volumes.) Aulus Gellius. Noctes Atticæ. (In Four Volumes.) Ausonius. (D. Magni Ausonii). Opera Omnia. (In Three Volumes.) Boethius.

Silva covers the physical and emotional needs of the soldier, whether on land or sea, beginning with comments on the proper age and mental condition for entry into military service, and moving on to practical information for maintaining the health of military personnel. For example, he discusses the best sources of fresh drinking water: most desirable is water from rivers with clear water, abundant fish, sandy banks, and plant life; to be avoided is standing water, or subterranean waters of calcarious sources. He also lists chemicals that will rid fresh meat of various parasites. The final chapter is an interesting commentary on military hospitals.Silva (d. 1835) studied medicine at Coimbra. He was honorary physician to the King of Portugal and an early advocate of vaccination in Portugal.---- Innocêncio IV, 158: calling for only 138 pp. Lisbon, Faculdade de Medicina, @Catálogo da colecção portuguesa I, 283: collating as our copy.

Friedrich Steinmann hatte Heine 1819 als Student kennengelernt und pflegte eine lose Freundschaft zu ihm, die 1825 mit Heines Wegzug nach Göttingen völlig abbrach. Nach Heines Tod ernannte sich Steinmann plötzlich zum langjährigen, intimen Freund des Dichters und veröffentlichte schon 1857 "H. Heine. Denkwürdigkeiten und Erlebnisse aus meinem Zusammenleben mit ihm", die "nicht nur erfundene Begegnungen, sondern auch schon einige gefälschte Gedichte enthielten. Das war erst der Anfang: 1861 veröffentlichte er in zwei Teilen "Dichtungen von H. Heine", die jener "gefällig gegen jeden, der ihn um ein Gedicht ersuchte" dem Herausgeber Steinmann angeblich geschenkt hatte: Insgesamt 165 Stücke, von denen keines echt ist. Dann folgte ein 159 Seiten langes Gedicht "Berlin. Herbstmährchen in 27 Kapiteln", das Steinmann ... auch selbst hergestellt hatte. Zu diesen drei Bänden Gedichte kamen noch zwei Bände mit 73 angeblich ungedruckten Briefen, von denen nur 31 echt sind" (Fuld, Das Lexikon der Fälschungen, S. 106f.).

        The North American Sylva, or a description of forest trees, of the United States, Canada, and Nova Scotia, considered particularly with respect to their use in the Arts, and their introduction into Commerce [Translated by Augustus L. Hillhouse]

      Printed by C. d'Hautel, Paris 1819 - Publisher's yellow paper-covered boards, letterpress paper labels to backstrips, uncut (some fading and neat restoration to backstrips) First edition in English, third issue, of Michaux's masterpiece and a classic of American natural history: the most important work relating to American trees published in the 19th century. Michaux's work is based on his and his father's extensive travels in the eastern half of America from the 1790s on. Both men were friendly with Jefferson and other leading figures, who aided them in their work and travels. The masterwork was first published in parts between 1810 and 1813 as Histoire des arbres forestiers de l'Amerique septentrionale . In 1817, Michaux began work on an English translation, issuing a section of the text on oak trees (believed to have been translated by Michaux himself) with no plates, which was then cancelled (MacPhail 16). When the first edition in English was subsequently issued between 1817 and 1819, the first issue contained the text from the cancelled publication, with the remainder of the text translated by Augustus L. Hillhouse of Connecticut. The subsequent second and third issues contained the entire Hillhouse translation printed in Paris by C. D'Hautel (and with page 112 numbered "112-136" to account for Hillhouse's translation being shorter than the previous). The beautifully-executed images, from the same plates in all three issues, were executed by the engraver Gabriel and others after original drawings by the great French botanical artist Pierre-Joseph Redouté and his associate Pancrace Bessa. This third issue in two volumes is the most complete and accurate, with corrections to plate numbers, signatures and pagination. Of the issues containing the present Hillhouse translation, Sabin writes: "Of the various editions with the text in English this, notwithstanding some typographical errors, is the best." And referring to Michaux's work with Thomas Nuttall's continuation, Sabin continues: "It is no exaggeration to remark that it is the most complete work of its kind, and is a production of unrivalled interest and beauty."

        Tour of the Grand Junction, Illustrated in a Series of Engravings; With an Historical and Topographical Description of those Parts of the Counties of Middlesex, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Bedfordshire, and Northamptonshire, Through which the Canal passes.

      London: Printed for J. Hassell, 1819. - The Grand Junction Canal was designed to facilitate water transport from Oxford Canal to London, in place of the uncertain Thames River. The canal was opened in 1800 and pretty well completed in 1805, and its 93 miles of waterway, with two long tunnels, did greatly improve cargo shipping. It is now, like all the canals of England, used almost entirely for pleasure cruising. John Hassell (died 1825) wrote and illustrated numerous art-instruction and topographical works, of which this is one of the most appealing, due to the beauty of the countryside through which the canal passed. In his Preface Hassell declares that the Grand Junction "embraces a variety far exceeding that afforded by many rivers, as combining all the beauties of landscape--the elegance and splendor of the mansion and the villa--and the venerable remains of antiquity." 8vo, contemporary olive-green morocco, gilt rules, decorations and lettering, a.e.g. Twenty-four hand-colored aquatint plates drawn and engraved by Hassell.

        FLORE MÉDICALE.

      Paris. 1814-1819. - Eight volumes. With 425 color plates (two folding). Contemporary three- quarter calf and marbled boards, spines gilt, leather labels. Corners rubbed. Light foxing. Very good. An interesting and beautifully illustrated series, with plates produced during the great period of French color printing. The title appears to have been loosely interpreted and consequently the work was expanded to include grapes, melon, palms, pineapple, pomegranates, bananas and other interesting, but non-medical plants. François Pierre Chaumeton (1775-1819) was a French army physician, pharmacist, and botanist. He worked on several notable medical publications beyond this one. Fellow botanist Jean Louis Marie Poiret (1755-1834) collaborated with him on this project, perhaps accounting for its wide-ranging scope, far beyond mere medical botany. The detailed illustrations were executed by Ernestine Panckoucke and Pierre Jean François Turpin, both gifted botanical illustrators. Indeed, Turpin is considered to be one of the greatest botanical and floral illustrators of his time. Sets often lack some of the plates, and it is difficult to find complete. A handsome and important production. PRITZEL 1676. NISSEN 349. TL-2 1091, 8115.

L'ultima tav., in b.n. e più volte ripiegata, è di "Organographie Végétale ou tableau elémentaire et philosophique des Organes extérieurs que constituent l'Etre végétal le plus compliqué, rangés selon l'ordre naturel de leur formation ou de leur dégré d'importance" (la tav., con raffigurazioni comparate di piante e fiori, è dedicata ad Alexander von Humboldt). Le restanti tavv. raffigurano frutti, fiori, radici, organismi vegetali elementari, foglie, etc. Bellissimo esemplare. Prima edizione di questa importante opera botanica avvalentesi dei testi del Poiret e delle magnifiche tavole del Turpin. L'edizione venne stampata in 4 differenti formati: In-4°, in-8° (il nostro esemplare appartiene a tale tiratura, riservata ai sottoscrittori) ed in-folio, una tiratura limitata di 10 copie. Per i tre formati vennero usati i medesimi caratteri di stampa. L'abate Poiret (Saint Quentin, 1755-Parigi, 1834), botanico, collaboratore di Lamarck, professore di storia naturale all'Università di Parigi, compilò il "Dictionnaire de Botanique" dell'"Encyclopédie" di Diderot e D'Alembert. Fra il 1785 e il 1786 venne inviato da Luigi XVI in Algeria per compiere un inventario della flora autoctona e dalla sua permanenza africana trasse il volume Voyage en Barbarie, ou Lettres écrites de l'ancienne Numidie pendant les années 1785 et 1786. Il Turpin (Vire, Normandia, 1775-Parigi, 1840), grande studioso di botanica, si iniziò a questa scienza in gioventù, quando, soldato, prese parte alla spedizione di Berthier a Santo Domingo conoscendo nell'isola il botanico Poireau. Dopo aver esplorato l'Isola Tartaruga, al ritorno in Francia prese ad illustrare con estrema perizia tecnica numerosi volumi botanici. Membro dell'Accademia delle Scienze di Parigi, si occupò di morfologia e fisiologia vegetale. Humboldt e Bompland gli dedicarono il genere di Composte Turpinia (o Barnadenia), e Ventenat il genere Turpinia delle Stafilacee. Sacheverell Sitwell e Wilfrid Blunt riconoscono a Turpin un'abilità nell'illustrazione botanica eguale a quella del ben più famoso Pierre Joseph Redouté, artista da cui fu assai influenzato ("possibly the greatest natural genius of all French botanical painters of his day", è la definizione data da Blunt di Turpin).

        Le Moine

      Chez Maradan, Libraire - Paris, 1819, 3 volumes in-12 demi-veau blond, dos lisses, pièces de titre et de tomaison bleues marine, fers et filets dorés. reliures d'époque. Traduit de l'anglais par Deschamps et Desprez, Benoît et Lamare. 2ff.-247pp./2ff.-275pp./2ff.-303pp. Matthew Gregory Lewis (1775-1818) est un romancier et dramaturge anglais, souvent désigné sous le nom du "moine Lewis", en raison du succès de son roman gothique, Le Moine (The Monk) paru pour la première fois en 1796. Certains passages sont d'une telle nature (viol, inceste, matricide, magie noire) qu'un an après sa publication, le livre fait l'objet d'une injonction de restriction à la vente. Lewis publie une deuxième édition dont il a retranché tous les passages jugés répréhensibles, ce qui n'enlève rien au caractère terrifiant de l'ouvrage. Le Moine est resté aux premiers rangs de l'école satanique, grâce à la terreur grandiose de l'ensemble, à la peinture énergique des passions, et en particulier à la conception du rôle habilement gradué de Mathilde, ce démon séduisant, dont la mission est de corrompre le prieur. Tout dans ce roman gothique est excessivement noir et romantique, des interventions démoniaques aux souterrains obscurs et humides. Mais Le Moine est avant tout une forte critique anti-religieuse qui met en scène les pires perversions des hommes et des femmes d'église, leurs frustrations, leurs pulsions sexuelles et leurs pulsions de morts dans leurs désirs sadiques et sanguinaires. La première traduction française du Monk date de 1796 en format in-12. Plusieurs ont vu le jour avant notre édition, tel le succès de l'oeuvre fut incontournable. Notre édition est la troisième édition de la traduction française, elle-même établie sur la quatrième édition anglaise. ( Quérard, V, 285 / Killen, Le Roman terrifiant. / Oberlé, 22 / Loliée, 313 ) "Où m'avez-vous conduit ? dit à la fin le moine d'une voix creuse et tremblante : pourquoi me déposer dans ces tristes lieux . Retirez-m'en promptement ! Portez-moi à Mathilde ! (.) -Te porter à Mathilde (.) malheureux, tu seras bientôt avec elle (.) car l'enfer ne compte pas de mécréant plus coupable que toi. Ecoutes, Ambrosio, je vais te révéler tes crimes ! Tu as versé le sang de deux innocentes : Antonia et Elvire ont péri par tes mains; cette Antonia que tu as violée, c'est ta soeur ! Cette Elvire que tu a assassinée t'as donné la naissance." Très bel exemplaire, en reliure de l'époque, de cette édition peu commune.

      Wien Artaria und Comp. [PN] 2588 [September 1819]. Folio. Unbound. [1] (title), 2-59, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Printed note to left of foot of p. 1: "15 B." (Bogen = bifolia). Plate of p. 25 corrected (see comments). Some annotations in pencil in an unknown hand including fingerings and notational corrections to many pages; durations, etc.; vertical lines subdividing the "Largo" measures to 4th movement (pp. 39-40). Paper tape reinforcement to spine and inner margins of first and last leaves; some other old paper repairs to margins; slightly foxed and soiled; minor paper imperfections.. Rare. First Edition. Kinsky p. 295. Hoboken 2, 434. The first edition was published in two versions, one with title in French, the other with title in German. While these two versions are supposed to have been issued simultaneously, it is not clear whether any German-titled copies with an uncorrected p. 25 exist. Kinsky's claim that the printed note to the foot of p. 2, "15 B.," is unique to later issues has been refuted. See Dorfmüller p. 258 and Fischer, Neue Zeitschrift für Musik 133 (1972), pp. 186-94.

Hoboken 3, 714 (with price "[2]," see also plates 17, p. 75, and 18, p. 77). Beethoven-Haus (the H.C. Bodmer Collection), with price left blank. Beethoven devised the theme - a mere four measures long - specifically as an "Aufgabe" (task) for his student. The text underlay of the theme, "O Hoffnung, o Hoffnung, du stählst die Herzen Vertreibest die Schmerzen," traditionally linked to Christoph August Tiedge's (1752-1841) poem "Urania," may, in fact, be by Beethoven himself. See Dorfmüller, 389. Although the title gives only the composer's initials ("R: E: H:" = "Rudolph, Erzherzog von Habsburg"), his identity was an open secret from the beginning. See the review of the edition in the Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung (Leipzig) 22, no. 3 (January 1, 1820), cols. 33-41.
