He commanded the Isabella while William Edward Parry took command of the Alexander. Also included on the voyage were Edward Sabine and Ross's nephew James Clark Ross. The expedition rediscovered Baffins 17th century explorations and found three sounds including Smith, Jones and Lancaster. Unfortuately for Ross, he mistakenly thought the end of Lancaster sound was blocked by a fictitious range of mountains he named the Crocker mountains. After returning to England, many were scepitcal including William Parry about the existance of the mountain range. Parry was chosen to lead another expedition and discovered Lancaster Sound was the gateway to the North West Passage. Ross never lived down this mistake..

        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 Enquiring Into The Probability Of A North-West Passage…

      London: Printed by Strahan and Spottiswoode For Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, And Brown, 1819., 1819. 2 Volumes in 1. 8vo. pp. lxix, 265; 2 p.l., 258. folding engraved map, 2 engraved plates (1 folding), & 1 full-page diagram. contemporary mottled calf, gilt back (surface tear to leather on rear cover, 2 small embossed library stamps, 1 plate repaired along fold with slight loss of image, bookplates & pockets removed from endpapers). Second (First Octavo) Edition of this famous voyage, which marked the resurgence of British interest in the search for the north-west passage, and inaugurated the great arctic explorations and discoveries of the nineteenth century. Among Ross’s officers on the voyage were William Edward Parry, James Clark Ross, and Edward Sabine. Setting out in April of 1818, the expedition rediscovered Baffin Bay and its three Sounds, Smith, Jones, and Lancaster, thereby vindicating the reports made by William Baffin in 1616. Sailing some distance into Lancaster Sound, Ross sited a mirage which he believed to be a range of mountains blocking further passage. These he named the Croker Mountains in honour of the first secretary of the Admiralty, J.W.Croker. On his return to England, Ross’s report was initially accepted as conclusive and he was promoted to Captain, but his contention that Lancaster Sound was landlocked was disputed by other members of the crew, notably by his second-in-command, William Edward Parry. Parry’s view was supported by Sir John Barrow, second secretary of the Admiralty, with whom Ross was to carry on a life-long quarrel as a result. In 1819, the Admiralty appointed Parry to lead a second expedition, which proved Ross to be mistaken. His reputation seriously discredited, Ross was never again given command of an official government expedition. National Maritime Museum I 818n. Sabin 73376. Smith 8796.

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

      Engraved frontis., ten engraved plates (all somewhat foxed as is usual), & one woodcut port. in the text. [iii]-vi, [2], vii-xlviii pp., one leaf, 138, 133*-138*, 139-672, [1] pp. Tall 8vo, cont. dark red straight-grained morocco, sides panelled in an elaborate gilt design, spine richly gilt, a.e.g. London: W. Clarke, 1819. First edition, and an unusually lovely copy, of a book which is today rather scarce. This is a descriptive account of the great British public and private libraries, with much information on libraries dispersed at auction and with an extensive index. Highlights of each collection are described. Archer Taylor considers this an excellent book about public, private, and sale catalogues. Clarke was matched only by Dibdin for providing first-hand information on all the great collectors of the late 18th and early 19th centuries in Britain. Bound-in at the end, as is sometimes the case, is William Wynken's A Dialogue in the Shades, between William Caxton, Fodius, a Bibliomanic, and William Wynken, Clerk [8 pp.; London, 1817] and A Ballad entitled Rare Doings at Roxburghe Hall [8 pp., London, n.d.]. A fine and handsome copy with the bookplates of Charles Henry Turner, John William Pease, and Lord Wardington. Lacks half-title. ❧ Taylor, Book Catalogues, pp. 39-41-"A good book about library catalogues...The unique feature that commends the Repertorium to me is the 'Index of Books' (pp. 603-673). Accounts of collectors and collections do not usually offer the reader the assistance of such an index." .

        On the Principles of Political Economy, and Taxation. Second Edition

      London: John Murray, 1819 Revised second edition of this major classic in the history of political economy by the first "scientific economist" (PMM). While most of the changes from the first edition are of a minor nature, there are some significant ones which demonstrate his reaction to contemporary comments. One of a 1000 copies printed. Octavo. Original grey boards, uncut, skillfully rebacked with silk moiré cloth, with the publisher's printed label preserved. Some light dustsoiling, rear free endpaper replaced. A very good copy. The fundamental ground-work of the Principles is based on the theory that, given free competition in trade, the exchange value of commodities will be determined by the amount of labour expended in production: not a wholly original thesis, nor one capable of absolute expression, but one which was given new force by the theory of distribution with which Ricardo reinforced it. This has been summarized thus: 'the demand for food determines the margin of cultivation; this margin determines rent; the amount necessary to maintain the labourer determines the wages; the difference between the amount produced by a given quantity of labour determines profit.' Ricardo also developed Adam Smith's theory of taxes as a part of the theory of distribution. A tax is not always paid by those on whom it is levied; a correct taxaction policy will always depend on a correct estimate of the indirect and ultimate effects of every form of tax" (Printing and the Mind of Man 277, for the first edition, London, 1817.

        Hokusai Manga Kyu-hen.

      Toshiro KATANO Biyotoheki do 1819 - - Toshiro KATANO Biyotoheki do, Tokyo _1819, 15,5x22,5cm, cousu. - Edition originale, rare, qu'on peut traduire sous le titre de Croquis de Hokusaï, volume 9. 15 volumes ont effectivement paru couvrant l'oeuvre de Hokusaï. Le premier fut publié en 1815 et les derniers à titre posthume. Le volume final est considéré comme apocryphe par certains historiens de l'art. le Volume contient 34 sujets, la plupart sur double page en noir, gris et chair. Volume en acordéon, relié par une couture. couverture brune avec étiquette de titre. Quelques taches sur le plat inférieur. Les hokusaï manga traient de sujets variés, des scènes de la vie quotidiennes, mais aussi des scènes guerrières, également des scènes de légendes typiquement japonaises, des animaux et des fleurs. "On considère en général que, après une période de production intense, Hokusai sélectionna très soigneusement ses croquis, et en redessina même un certain nombre, en les disposant selon l'ordre que nous connaissons aujourd'hui. Cependant, Michener soutient que la mise en page des différents croquis sur une planche donnée a été en réalité décidée par les graveurs et les éditeurs, et non par Hokusai lui-même." Wikipedia. On rappellera que la technique de l'estampe japonaise est très proche du dessin original, puisqu'on apposait le dessin à l'encre sur un pièce de bois que le graveur creusait, suivant précisément les lignes du dessin, lui-même détruit par cette opération.

Good copy, complete. ---- Waller 8665, see Garrison-Morton 5738; Zeis 548; Gnudi-Webster p.320. - First Italian Edition of von Graefe's classic Rhinoplastik, the first important work after Tagliacozzi and Carpue on plastic surgery published the year before. The edition is a summary version prepared by Schönberg, the chief physician of the Austrian Army hospital in Naples. In his treatise, Schönberg uses both von Graefe's text and plates but also cites Carpue's 'Account of Two Successful Operations for Restoring a Lost Nose' (1816; Garrison-Morton 5737), together with its German translation and with preface by von Graefe. Schönberg's summary is apparently the earliest general account of modern plastic surgery in Italian. As rare as the original German edition of Rhinoplastik, only 3 copies are listed in OCLC.

        Traité d'economie politique, ou simple exposition de la manière dont se forment, se distribuent et se consomment les richesses; quatrième édition, corrigée et augmentée, a laquelle se trouve un épitome des principes fondamentaux de l'économie politique.

      A Paris, Chez Deterville, 1819. 1819 2 voll. in-8° (205x128mm), pp. LXXXVI, 477; (4), 509; legatura del tempo m. pelle marrone e angoli con dorso adorno di titolo in oro su tassello, filetti e segnature di volume in oro. Piatti marmorizzati, segnacoli in seta verde. Ottimo esemplare. Quarta edizione del più popolare testo di economia politica dopo la "Wealth of Nations" di Adam Smith. L'edizione originale era apparsa a Parigi nel 1803. Dopo la pubblicazione di questo trattato, l'economista lionese, membro del Tribunato nel 1799, fu dal Primo Console privato della carica politica per le idee troppo liberali espresse nel suo libro e dovette attendere fino al 1814, dopo la caduta dellImpero, per poterne far uscire la seconda edizione. Questo importantissimo trattato sarà poi ristampato ben 32 volte e tradotto in tutte le principali lingue. Say, vero padre della scuola ottimistica liberale, divulgò e sviluppò le dottrine smithiane in senso ancor più liberistico, sostenendo l'improduttività della spesa pubblica, la libera coniazione e rifiutando qualsiasi ingerenza statale in materia economica, polemizzando vivacemente con Ricardo, Malthus e Sismondi. Joseph Alois Schumpeter, nella sua fondamentale "History of Economic Analysis" (New York, 1954), definisce il testo di Say "the most important of the links in the chain that leads from Cantillon and Turgot to Walras" e ne rivendica la continuità rispetto alla tradizione dell'economia politica francese di Sismondi e di Cournot. Say fu il vero padre della scuola ottimistica liberale, sviluppata in modo ancora più incline al "laissez-faire" rispetto alle teorie smithiane, sostenitore dell'improduttività della spesa pubblica, della libera coniazione e del rifiuto di ogni ingerenza dello stato nel ciclo economico. Cfr., per le varie edizioni dell'opera: Kress, B.4729. Cat. Einaudi, 5118 e sgg. Palgrave, III, 357-358: "J. B. Say is usually ranked, with A. Smith and Ricardo, amongst the fathers of economic science...It is he, more than any oyher writer, who impressed on political economy the character of a natural science". Brunet, V, 177. Graesse, VI, 287. Cfr. Carpenter, Economic Bestsellers, XXXIII (1). Goldsmith, 18616. Teilhac, 377. Macchioro, Studi di storia del pensiero economico, pp. 103-113: Cossa, Introduzione allo studio dell'economia politica, pp. 327-30; Coquelin & Guillaumin, II, p. 649. Schumpeter, pp. 492-93. Mc Culloch, pp. 21-22: "His principal merit in a scientific point of view consists in his showing, in a more satisfactory manner than it had been done previously, that effective demand depends upon production".

Qualche inevitabile e leggera fioritura. Ottimo esemplare. Pregiata edizione ottocentesca, curata da Bernard Le Bouyer de Saint-Gervais, delle memorie del Maresciallo di Francia Catinat (Parigi, 1637-Saint Gratien, 1712). Il libro contiene estesi acconti sulle battaglie di Catinat nella campagna di Fiandra, nell'assedio di Casale, nella campagna contro i Valdesi, negli scontri con il Duca di Savoia a Staffarda e Marsaglia, nella Guerra di Successione di Spagna, etc. Il Catinat era stato incaricato da Luigi XIV di condurre la campagna contro i Valdesi nelle Valli del Piemonte, ed il primo volume fornisce il resoconto e la corrispondenza di tale spedizione militare e del celebre assedio della Balsaglia. Catinat, posto in seguito a capo dell'armata francese d'Italia nel 1690, e nominato Maresciallo di Francia nel 1693, ebbe modo di distinguersi per le sue doti tattiche e strategiche in alcune storiche battaglie, come quelle di Staffarda del 1690 e della Marsaglia del 1693, nella conquista di Carmagnola e negli assedi di Cuneo e di Pinerolo. Messo nuovamente alla testa dell'Armée d'Italie nel 1701, venne ripetutamente sconfitto dal Principe Eugenio (nelle battaglie di Carpi, di Chiari, ecc.) e, costretto alla ritirata, fu sostituito con il Maresciallo di Villeroi. Dell'opera, importantissima fonte di storia militare e, più in generale, politico-diplomatica, esistono tre varianti, identiche nella collazione. Oltre alla presente, senza data, ma impressa quasi certamente nel 1819, ve n'è una con l'indicazione "Librairie Universelle, 1819" e ne figura un'altra con la dicitura "Librairie Monge, 1819". I presenti "Mémoires" sono opera distinta da quelli già pubblicati nel 1775 dal Marchese di Créquy in un volumetto in-12°, rileaborazione di una "Vie de Nicolas Catinat" già da lui scritta e pubblicata alcuni anni prima (cfr. Quérard, France Litt., II, p, 335). Non in Manno, né in Hugon & Gonnet.

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

      Paris, chez l'Auteur, 1819-22. 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.

        Traité de la Géométrie Descriptive - [ Suivi de : ] Planches.

      Mme Vve Courcier 1819 Planches de l'Atlas imprimées par Tardieu, 1 vol. in-4 relié , rel. d'époque demi-basane marron, Mme Vve Courcier, Paris, 1819, 1 f. blanc, XX-355 pp. (avec insertion de 2 ff. supplémentaires modifiés, correspondant aux pp. 203 à 206) et 8 pp. (catalogue) ; titre, 8 pp. et 60 planches hors texte (dont 3 pl. dépliantes) Edition originale. Exemplaire bien complet de l'atlas de 60 planches gravée par Tardieu ; surtout, le présent exemplaire propose deux états différents des ff. paginés 203-204 et 205-206 (les feuillets supplémentaires sont insérés à la fin des tables) : la modification concerne les paragraphes 508, 509 et 510, relatifs au problème des tangentes aux intersections de surface. Etat très satisfaisant (dos frotté avec 2 petits taches d'encre, petite fente à un mors, lég. rouss). Elève de Monge et de Hachette, Louis Léger (1784-1864) prit la suite de ses maîtres à Polytechnique dans le domaine de la géométrie descriptive. Comme le précise le Rapport introductif de l'Institut de France, cosigné par Prony, Fourier et Arago, "l'expérience avait conduit de bonne heure aux procédés d'après lesquels les architectes, les tailleurs de pierre et les charpentiers construisent leurs épures ; mais ces méthodes n'ont été réunies en corps de doctrine et débassées de tout empirisme, que de nos jours. C'est à M. Monge qu'on en est redevable". Les Leçons de Géométrie descriptive de Monge étaient néanmoins insatisfaisantes pour les artistes peu familier des méthodes Mathématiques, et le présent ouvrage s'emploie à remédier à ce défaut, notamment par l'usage de planches parfaitement dessinées offrant "dans les plus petits détails, toutes les constructions qu'il faut exécuter pour arriver à la solution finale". Poggendorff, II, 1667 Français

        Nouveau Système de Minéralogie. Traduit du Suédois.

      Paris, Méquignon-Marvis, 1819. 8vo (200 x 124 mm). pp. (4), vi, 314, (1). Contemporary calf, gilt lettered label (somewhat rubbed). First published in Swedish in 1814. First French edition, of this famous mineralogical classic. 'In 1812 he received a gift of a large number of minerals which he later decided to classify. The methods of mineral classification existing at the time were based on appearance and physical properties. These seemed highly unsystematic to Berzelius. He concluded from his analytical experience that a logical classification could be based only on chemical composition. In his original system, first published in 1814, he arranged the minerals in terms of their basic constituents, although he later revised this and placed chief emphasis on the acid component. Like many of Berzelius' innovations, his system of mineral classification was at first received with some hostility, but this was gradually overcome. During his visit to Paris in 1818 he won the approval of Haüy, the leading mineralogist of the day, whose own system was based on physical properties' (DSB). Ward & Carozzi 202; Hoover 122.

        Anatome Testudinis Europaeae. [Pars I].

      Vilnae, impensis auctoris, 1819. Folio (515 x 320mm). pp. vi, 74, with 19 (pls. 1-17, 15 bis and 16 bis) engraved plates. Publisher's printed wrappers, title within an ornamented border. A second part was published in 1821. A complete copy has pages (6), 179 with 39 engraved plates. This work is very rare. Dr. W. Junk in his long career as a natural history bookseller only had one copy, of which he made a reprint in 1902. "This work which had been published in hardly 80 copies is perhaps the rarest zoological book. During 30 years' occupation with scientific literature I have seen only one or two copies... The copy quoted above of the genuine edition - bought by me at the sale of Milne-Edwards' library - served for this reprint and is therefore not in good condition; but it is thoroughly complete" (Junk catalogue dated 1910). A major work on the anatomy of the turtle. The text pages are printed on smaller sheets 450 x 280, both plates and text are uncut. A very well preserved copy. Junk, Rara I, p. 69; Nissen ZBI, 446.

        On the Principles of Political Economy, and Taxation. Second Edition

      London: John Murray, 1819 Revised second edition of this major classic in the history of political economy by the first "scientific economist" (PMM). While most of the changes from the first edition are of a minor nature, there are some significant ones which demonstrate his reaction to contemporary comments. One of a 1000 copies printed. Octavo. Original grey boards, uncut, skillfully rebacked with silk moiré cloth, with the publisher's printed label preserved. Some light dustsoiling, rear free endpaper replaced. A very good copy. The fundamental ground-work of the Principles is based on the theory that, given free competition in trade, the exchange value of commodities will be determined by the amount of labour expended in production: not a wholly original thesis, nor one capable of absolute expression, but one which was given new force by the theory of distribution with which Ricardo reinforced it. This has been summarized thus: 'the demand for food determines the margin of cultivation; this margin determines rent; the amount necessary to maintain the labourer determines the wages; the difference between the amount produced by a given quantity of labour determines profit.' Ricardo also developed Adam Smith's theory of taxes as a part of the theory of distribution. A tax is not always paid by those on whom it is levied; a correct taxaction policy will always depend on a correct estimate of the indirect and ultimate effects of every form of tax" (Printing and the Mind of Man 277, for the first edition, London, 1817.

        Four words in his hand: Jackson dockets a receipt for $5 ìfor Servisses through the Sholesî ñ piloting his boat through Muscle Shoals most probably laden with cotton and/or corn grown on his Alabama plantation.

      Manuscript Document, one page, 7î x 4î. [Meltonís Bluff, Alabama], March 1, 1819. Four-word docket by Jackson on verso. On laid paper. Fine condition. The document, in full, ìRecd of William W. Crawford five Dollars in full for my Servisses through the Sholes.î Signed ìRobert Brashers.î On verso, darkly penned by Andrew Jackson: ìNo 4 - / Robt. Brashears / $5.î The word ìRecptî is in another hand. Tensions in the South between the frontier settlers and the Creek Indians began in Revolutionary times. The Continental Congress received numerous reports on skirmishes between settlers and the Creeks. On August 30, 1813, Creek Indians massacred several hundred pioneers at Fort Mims, near Tensaw, in south Alabama, Mississippi Territory. Col. Andrew Jackson marched into Alabama with the Tennessee militiamen to fight what is now known as the Creek Indian War. The Cherokee joined in the fight. In October, Jackson dispatched Col. John Coffee, one of his wifeís nephews, and 800 men to hunt for a war party of Creeks. Once of Coffeeís men was Davy Crockett. They crossed the Tennessee River and traveled to the head of Elk River Shoals. In his report to Jackson, Coffee wrote, in part, ìI proceeded to cross the river at the upper end of the shoals, all my efforts failed to produce a pilot. I took with me one of John Meltonís sons...î The Cherokees had established a large village at what became known as Meltonís Bluff. In 1780, John Melton, an Irishman, married a Cherokee woman and established a cotton plantation at Meltonís Bluff. As a result of the 1806 Cotton Gin Treaty, the Cherokee received one of Mississippi Territoryís first cotton gins and other concessions for ceding land north of the Tennessee River to the United States. On January 3, 1818, in a letter published in her ëLetters from Alabamaî (Washington: 1830), Anne Newport Royall wrote, ìOf General Jackson, I shall say nothing till I see him, which pleasure I expect at Melton's Bluff, head of the Muscle Shoals, where I shall be in a few days...î On January 12th, she wrote ìafter chatting with Rhea, I learned he was from Rockbridge county, Virginia; had piloted boats through the Muscle Shoals, fifteen years; sometimes four at a time, at ten dollars each. He sails down one day, and walks back the next. He never met, in all that time, with an accident! There are several of these pilots...î Robert Brashers was one of those pilots. On January 14, 1818, Mrs. Royall told of her stay in Meltonís Bluff. In part, ìMeltonís Bluff is a town, and takes its name from a person by the name of John Melton, a white man, deceased two years since, at an advanced age ... You have heard that this country consists of table and bottom land, also, of the Bluffs. These Bluffs happen where there is no bottom land, but the table land running up to the river forms a high precipice, called a Bluff. This is the case at Meltonís Bluff, the highest I have seen. Here is a very large plantation of cotton and maize, worked by about sixty slaves, and owned by General Jackson, who bought the interest of old Melton...î After John Melton died in 1816, Jackson purchased his plantation and his slaves from his son. Royal continued, ìI can sit in my room and see the whole plantation; the boats gliding down the river...î Jackson used those boats to transport cotton and corn grown at his plantation which was located on the south bank of the Tennessee River near Florence, Alabama. Muscle Shoals was a hazard to navigation because of its sandbanks which required an experienced pilot; the river drops 140 feet in 30 miles. William W. Crawford was employed by Jackson to hire pilots to assist his boats through the Shoals. In 1821, the State of Tennessee passed an act ìTo authorize William Crawford and company of Franklin County, to build a Mill and other water works on the Tennessee River and for other purpose.î

Anzeigen) - VIII, 384 S.Halblederbände im Stil der Zeit mit Rückenschild und etwas Rückenvergoldung.

IV, 438: "Ein Werk, das mit Recht als die Grundlage der experimentellen und medico-legalen Toxikologie bezeichnet werden kann." - Sigismund Friedrich Hermbstädt (1760-1833), der unter Trommsdorff in Erfurt Chemie studierte, und die Zusätze und Anmerkungen zum vorliegenden Werk verfaßte, beeinflußte maßgeblich die Entwicklung der Pharmazie, Chemie und Technologie in Deutschland und machte sich durch die Herausgabe grundlegender ausländischer Werke (Guyton de Morveau, A.

Es existiert zur Zeit kein ähnliches Werk über den genannten Gegenstand, das die Wichtigkeit seines Inhaltes aus einem gleichen vielseitigen Gesichtspunkt verfolgt und erschöpft hat; daher das gegenwärtige nicht nur jedem Arzte, Physiker, Chemiker und denkenden Pharmaceuten, vor deren Forum die darin abgehandelten Materien speciell gehören, sondern selbst denjenigen Justizbehörden mit Recht empfohlen zu werden verdienet, welche bei den durch Vergiftungen veranlasseten Criminaluntersuchungen, ein richterliches Erkenntniss abzufassen beauftragt sind" (Vorrede des Übersetzers). Erschlossen durch umfangreiche Sach- und Namenregister am Schluß des 4. Bandes. - Sehr gut erhaltenes, nur ganz vereinzelt minimal fleckiges Exemplar.
