        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.

      London: John Murray, 1819.. 1st edition. Errata slip, xl, 252, cxliv. Period calf-backed marbled boards, raised bands, gilt titling to spine, marbled endpapers and page edges NOTE: MISSING MOST OF THE AQUATINT PLATES and charts. Those present are Cape Melville and Melvilles Monument (facing p74); Folding Chart of the Part of Baffin's bay found inhabited (facing p116); Large folding plate Views of Headlands (facing p190); Xeme (facing p LVII) 3 folding Meteorological Journals following appendix. 1st Edition of Ross's famous first 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. TPL 1153. Arctic Bib. 14873. Hill p. 261. Lande 1425. A.B. 14873 Ross was chosen to lead Britains resurgence of exploration of the arctic regions. 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.

Both Extracts are sometimes attributed to John Mitford. Nicely bound to style in quarter calf, spine gilt; leather lettering label, gilt; marbled paper boards, vellum tips. A fine copy. This title has a curious bibliographic history, with first issues attributing authorship to Lord Byron, then removing Byron's name, then this issue (Viets IV), with gathering 'A' reset to 23 lines to account for the removal of a slur on Mary Godwin and Jane Clermont and with 'lmost' on page 36. Earlier issues are unavailable, making this essentially the earliest printing obtainable of the first book on vampires. See Viets in PBSA LXIII (1969), 83-103.

"Lindenfels, so far as I can ascertain, is the only writer who accurately presents both the tables and the directions of Vigenère." (Charles J. Mendelsohn, 1940). The present work also constitutes the first Danish cryptographical work."All European countries have a larger or smaller collection of crytographical works in their languages, whereas we in Denmark, as far as the author is aware, do not own a single letter thereof in the mother tongue. The author has therefore endeavoured, also in a scientific sense, not to be entirely unworthy in filling out this lacuna in the national literature. Both of these purposes unite in the "pium desiderum": to enable our young officials - in particular the military - to match also in this respect those of our neighbouring nations. It is necessary in times such as ours, not to lag behind foreigners, especially in these things, if we do not wish at all hours to succumb to them." (from the "Prereminder" - translated from Danish in Franksen). "In 1918, Charles J. Mendelsohn was made a captain in the Military Intelligence Division of the General Staff of the U.S. Army, in charge of decipherment of German codes. A classic scholar and faculty member of the history department in the College of the City of New York, he was launched by his experience into a lifelong study of historical ciphers and their originators. Among other things, this research resulted in two fundamental papers on Cardano and de Vigenère, respectively... With this background in mind we are hard put to find a more authoritative source on the history of the Vigenère cipher than the article by Mendelsohn. It is therefore noteworthy to read in Mendelsohn's abstract, that "In all the literature of cipher, I know of only one writer who has correctly described Vigenère's cipher, and that was well over one hundred years ago." In the body of the article Mendelsohn, referring to "I.B. Lindenfels, Den hemmelige Skrivekonst (Copenhagen, 1819)", expands on this remark... (see first quotation above). On this authority I have often relied on Lindenfels' work for factual information in past discussions. Yet, I have withheld his story which, lying dormant in the Danish Army Archives and some contemporary bibliographical accounts, is perhaps as fascinating as the topic he describes... Its title page was engraved, so Lindenfels proudly tells us, together with nine other illustrations by a young artist, H.C. Klingsey, employed as a map-maker by the Danish navy. It reveals that Lindenfels was a major of the artillery and a teacher of the Royal Pageans (cadets training for general staff and military engineering), at the Land Cadet Academy (infantry and horse), and at the Artillery Cadet Institute... In the "prereminder", Lindenfels assures the reader that he has done everything in his power to make the book as entertaining as possible. Simultaneously, however, he emphasizes that his choice of motto "Ei blot til lyst" (not only for pleasure) on the title-page, is made on purpose (see quotation from the Prereminder above)..." (Franksen, pp. 215-17).Lindenfels does not invent or introduce an entirely new cipher, he does, however, in the present work, introduce a new practice that is to replace the simple substitution cipher or traditional nomenclature, and in fact he becomes the first to describe the seminal Vigenère cipher correctly. The work is divided into three parts, namely Simple substitution ciphers and nomenclatures; the Vigenère cipher; and a Supplement, all of about the same length. The supplement not only describes the history of ciphers and codes but also covers sign languages, both of thieves and deaf and mutes. Being the first such work in the Danish language, of course it arose some curiosity and excitement. It is evident from the subscription list that Kind Fredrik VI himself purchased 10 copies alone. For curiosity it can be mentioned that Lindenfels here mentions "the newest galvanic and electric discoveries" and "the incredible bordering progress in physics and chemistry", referring to Ørsted and inferring how Ørsted gradually worked towards his discovery of electromagnetism in 1820, about a year after Lindenfels had published his work. For a long and thorough description of the work and of Lindenfels, see:Franksen, Mr. Babbage's Secret. The Tale of a Cypher - and APL. (IBM)

John Wright, "Early Books in America", p. 39 notes that this was probably the first folio edition of the Bible in German printed in the United States. The Christoph Saur editions of 1743, 1763 and 1776 were quarto editions. This Bible is not found in Darlow and Moule. Johann Bär was the printer and John Henry was the engraver. [Shaw & Scoemaker, 47206; Bott & Tannhof, "German Printing", 2363. It is particularly significant that this was a major effort by German Pietists in America. August Hermann Francke (1663-1727) has a section on how to read the Holy Scriptures. Not only is the Bible complete but it contains the Apocrypha. While the questions of canonicity were recurrent issues among Protestants, the German consider them part of the religious tradition though not used for theological purposes.. Folio.

(vii), 217pp. Printed with great clarity and precision, this is an impressive large-format edition of Sallust's "Catiline" and "Jugurtha," the earliest historical monographs. Includes extant fragments of his other works and an index. Firmin Didot was the younger son of Didot l'Ainé, who revolutionized type design in the eighteenth century. His international reputation was such that Benjamin Franklin sent his grandson to learn printing from Didot, and the boy engraved his first punch under the tutelage of the young Firmin. Firmin Didot himself, influenced by the strong contrast between thick and thin lines of his father's matrices, cut the famous types used by Didot in the early nineteenth century. He was also a Latin scholar and translator. Light foxing and occasional toning to pp. 200-217, else fine in early dark-blue paper boards, carefully re-backed in cloth, with original spine laid-down.

        A Geological Map of England & Wales

      Hand-colored engraved map, in six separate linen-backed sections (and, in turn, each section consisting of six panels). Each section (approximately 655 x 815 mm.) as issued with the orig. engraved label "contents" key on front, all preserved in the orig. marbled-paper slip-case with the orig. printed label (slip-case a little worn). London: 1819 [but actually 1820]. First edition of this very rare large-scale geological map, in many ways superior to William Smith's great work which had appeared several years earlier. Greenough (1778-1855), who studied law, showed an early interest in science, particularly geology, which lasted all his life. He was a founder and first president of the Geological Society of London. In 1812, the council of the Geological Society "requested him to prepare a geological map of England and Wales...which task he undertook with the assistance of other members, although aware that William Smith was already preparing such a map for publication. The completed map was published on 1 May 1820, five years after Smith's map. Greenough's map was on a slightly smaller scale than Smith's and had much more topographic detail, with hachuring to indicate valleys and escarpments. There was also more geological detail, and the Cretaceous and Upper Jurassic rocks in particular were more accurately delineated. More outcrops of granite and trap were shown, and an interesting feature was the attempt to show the distribution of diluvium, or drift...A revised edition of the map was issued by the Geological Society in 1840 and a third edition in 1865 ten years after Greenough's death."-D.S.B., V, pp. 518-19. Fine copy. The first edition of this map is very rare; later editions turn up from time to time. As usual, without the Memoirs of a Geological Map of England (1820). ❧ Zittel, pp. 112-"The topographical groundwork and technical workmanship of Greenough's map were particularly good...for a long time this map was the best that existed." .

This is an impressive collection of The Spectator, bound in full leather bindings.

The Spectator 'set out not only to entertain and inform, but also to edify and instruct morally and aesthetically'. Addison and Steele's stated goal was to 'enliven Morality with Wit, and to temper Wit with Morality.' The daily issues of The Spectator became a huge success, with essays commenting on the sublime, the social, and the political. It became a major venue for the spread of Enlightenment ideas, and was one of the first publications to appeal directly to a female readership. Number 40 of the Grolier 100.

Illustrated with portrait of the author and 4 etched plates of views. Original boards, rebacked. Pages uncut. Foxed, otherwise Very Good Condition. & & Noah’s writings - political, religious, and secular - appeared widely during his day in both essay and pamphlet form; however, Travels was his only full-length book. His colorful details of England, France, and Spain were described on his voyage to assume the position as U.S. Consul to Tunis—the first overseas diplomatic assignment by an American Jew. Descriptions of daily life and social customs of the Muslims and Jews comprise a valuable window into the intrigues of that historical time. Noah received a letter of recall by Secretary of State James Monroe (under Madison) from his position as Consul and was legitimately outraged by the accusations that his religion had inappropriately influenced his decision making. The book includes Monroe’s letter of recall and gives Noah the opportunity to explain why as a member of the Hebrew race he considered himself a proper asset to a country populated by 60,000 other Jews.

He served in Spain and France during the Napoleonic War before being sent to India where he was appointed "aide-de- camp to the Marquis of Hastings, governor-general and commander-in-chief, in which capacity he made the campaigns of 1816-17 against the Mahrattas. When peace was arranged with the Maharajah Scindiah [sic.] the event was considered of sufficient importance to send the despatches in duplicate, and Fitzclarence was entrusted with the duplicates sent by overland route. He started from the western frontier of Bundelkund, the furthest point reached by the grand army, 7 Dec. 1817, and travelling through districts infested by the Pindarrees, witnessed the defeat of the latter by General Doveton at Jubbulpore, reached Bombay, and quitted it in the ... cruiser Mercury for Kosseir 7 Feb. 1818, crossed the desert, explored the pyramids with [Sir Henry] Salt and [Giovanni Battista] Belzoni, descended the Nile, and reached London, via Alexandria and Malta, 16 June 1818. He subsequently published an account of his travels, [the present work, which exhibited much observation and containing some curious plates of Indian military costumes of the day from sketches by the author." (DNB). In addition to his military career, the author served as a privy councillor, a fellow of the Royal Society, and of the Royal Geographical, Antiquarian, Astronomical, and Geological societies of London. He was also a founder member of the Royal Asiatic Society in 1824, was elected a member of the council in March 1825, was for many years vice-president, and was chosen president the year before his death.

        THE TRUE TRAVELS, ADVENTURES AND OBSERVATIONS OF CAPTAINE JOHN SMITH [and] THE GENERALL HISTORIE OF VIRGINIA, NEW-ENGLAND, AND THE SUMMER ILES, WITH THE NAMES OF THE ADVENTURERS, PLANTERS, AND GOVERNOURS FROM THEIR FIRST BEGINNING, AN. 1584. TO THIS PRESENT 1626. WITH THE PROCEEDINGS OF THOSE SEVERALL COLONIES AND THE ACCIDENTS THAT BEFELL THEM IN ALL THEIR JOURNYES AND DISCOVERIES. ALSO THE MAPS AND DESCRIPTIONS OF THOSE COUNTRYES, THEIR COMMODITIES, PEOPLE, GOVERNMENT, CUSTOMES, AND RELIGION YET KNOWN (2 Volumes, Complete)

      Richmond, VA: Franklin Press, William W. Gray, Printer, 1819. First American Edition, from the London Edition of 1629. Full Leather. Octavo. [1-14], 247, of which 77-78 are blank; xi, 282; complete with 2 folding maps, 1 folding plate, 2 frontispieces (scarce thus); folding maps and plate have been archivally strengthened at some of the folds--one has a some loss that has been filled in in tasteful facsimile; volumes are full bound in contemporary marbled sheep with simple double fillet compartments to the spine and red morocco title labels; discreet patch to the head of Volume I; early owner signature on the front free endpaper along with more modern ink notes (some scant and scattered marginalia in the same hand throughout); toning to the contents. It goes without saying that Smith was a seminal figure in the colonization of North America. His account of his travels was integral in helping to encourage others to make the transatlantic trek. Despite some notable exaggerations in his writing, his reporting of the possibilities of successful colonization of the New World was surprisingly evenhanded in comparison with his contemporaries who quite normally asserted that gold was in abundance. He was realistic about the dangers but optimistic about the possibilities as well. A nice copy of a scarce edition. (Sabin 82852; Shaw & Shoemaker 49438; SWEM 17083). near Very Good binding.

        Histoire de France, pendant le dix-huitième siècle

      Paris, Treuttel et Würtz, 1819-1826. 14 parts in 14. 8vo. Frontispiece (portrait of the author), 6,136 pp. 7 other frontispieces, 204 portraits, (4 hand-coloured), 69 original letters of which many large, folded, 6 letters in facsimile, 12 signed printed documents, 13 original printed billets, 67 other engraved plates of which 13 tinted and two large, folded and hand-coloured. Uniform original red half morocco over red grained boards. Rich gilt spines.* A unique set of this rare work as it contains many additional original letters, autographs and portraits of kings, dukes, marquises, scientists, revolutionaries and other major figures of 18th century France, including autographed or signed letters by Louis XIV, Louis XV, and Napoléon Bonaparte, and portraits of people who had a great influence on French history and politics, such as Charlemagne, Voltaire, Corneille, Jean Baptiste Colbert (d. 1683), James Cook, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, etc., etc. Hand-coloured plates are included of the Duc d'Enghien, Marie Therese, and Louis XVIII. Also included is a hand-coloured plate of the first flight with a helium balloon by Charles and Robert (1783). This is the major work of the French historian Jean Charles Dominique De Lacretelle (1766-1855), also known as "Lecretelle le jeune". The first volume is titled "quatrième edition" but it can be said that all early editions are rare. In part VII, many illustrations depict events leading to and being part of the French Revolution. The portraits and some of the engravings of revolutionary events date from later, 19th century publications. Of many the source is unknown. This work was first, partly, published as "Précis historique de la révolution" in six parts (Brunet 23941). Separately, the author wrote a "Histoire de France pendant le xviiie siècle", also in six parts (Brunet 23882), which was followed by this, apparently expanded and corrected combined edition in 14 parts, which is not mentioned by Brunet. Uncut. Two 40 pp. Treuttel & Würtz catalogues and some smaller catalogues bound in the rear of several volumes. The Table des sommaires de ce volume of volume VII bound in the rear of volume VIII. Slight rubbing to the boards, some scattered foxing, some manuscript letters a bit soiled, but overall a clean and really attractive set. The "naked" version of this work is rare, this "dressed" copy is downright unique. Brunet III , p 731.

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..

        Plans raisonnés de toutes les espèces de Jardins

      Paris [1819]-1820: Lebégue for the author, Vilquin, Treuttel, [et al.] Folio (425 x 290 mm). [1] leaf, 56 pp., [1] leaf (errata). 57 plates of lithographed garden plans and views, most by C. Motte, one by Bermard, after drawings by the author, the plates letter-keyed to text, 56 plates with contemporary ms. numbering corresponding to the text descriptions (the plate containing six views of the "Jardin Parcs ou Carrières" unnumbered). Contemporary morocco-backed boards, spine gilt lettered (joints and extremities a bit scuffed). Provenance: H. Hottinguer, printed book label; a few neat pencil notes identifying a few of the gardens and giving their total square area in arpents (as given in the descriptive text). First edition of a highly influential book of garden design. Thouin came from a family of botanists and gardeners: his father and brother André (to whom the work is dedicated) successively held the post of chief gardener at the Jardin du Roi (the present Jardin des Plantes). In this work Thouin proposed a system of classification of gardens by type and by design. His four typological categories are vegetable gardens, fruit gardens or orchards, botanical or pharmaceutical gardens, and pleasure gardens; the latter in turn he classifies by the characteristics of their design, designating three broad categories: symmetrical gardens, whose design requires a "compass and rule"; irregular, asymmetric "Chinese" or "English" gardens, whose sole governing principles are the imagination of their creators and the means of their owners; and "landscape" gardens, designed in imitation of nature, with a minimum of overt artifice. These categories are in turn subdivided: Thouin sets forth his methodical classification system in the preface, and illustrates it with a table (p. 7). The rest of the work is devoted to concrete descriptions and illustrations of garden designs for every imaginable type of garden. These include a few actual gardens, some executed by Thouin himself, including the Palace Garden of the Tuileries, the public gardens flanking the Champs d'Elysée, Versailles, and an enlargement of the Jardin des Plantes. Other designs show a romantic Chinese garden, a fanciful English garden, the Jardin du Roi, and numerous country and pleasure gardens. The fashionable "jardin anglais" clearly dominates: Thouin's work of codification in fact established a systematized English garden, based on a network of curved paths, as the "official" style for public parks in France (used, for example, in the Bois de Boulogne and the Parc Buttes-Chaumont, designed by Hausmann). Most of the fine lithographs consist of bird's-eye view plans surrounded by small vignettes showing details of garden buildings and other structures (bridges, etc.). One of the most striking plates (51) portrays a fantastical scheme of concentric curving paths in mountainous terrain designed for en experimental farm in an unidentified European tropical colony; on the following plate are shown the proposed buildings and views of the farm. The last four lithographs are devoted uniquely to gardening structures. To render the work accessible to readers of more modest means, as Thouin explains in his preface, it was issued in parts, beginning in August 1819. Copies of this first edition appear to be variously dated either 1819 or 1820. The lithographs were issued uncolored, reflecting the practical nature of the work; it was not until 1828 that a different publisher (Mme. Huzard) decided to capitalize on the decorative value of the plates by issuing an edition (the third) with the lithographs hand-colored. A fine copy, with wide margins, in its original quarter morocco binding. Cleveland Collections 838; cf. Brunet V, 842-3 (1828 edition); cf. Berlin Katalog 3483 (third edition)..

        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]

      Paris: Printed by C. d'Hautel, 1819. 2 volumes in four (as issued), octavo. (10 1/2 x 6 3/4 inches). 2 half-titles (as issued). 156 hand- finished colour-printed stipple-engraved plates after P.J. Redouté (27), P. Bessa (92) and others by Gabriel (108), Bessin (16) and others. (Text with old dampstaining, the plates less so, but with occasional cockling and small spots). 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." Bennett, p.76; MacPhail André & François-André Michaux 17c; Meisel III, pp.379-81; cf. Oak Spring Sylva 20; Sabin 48694; cf. Savage, André and François André Michaux (Charlottesville, 1986); Stafleu & Cowan III, 5962.
