        Technical drawing of Whaling equipment

      France: circa, 1820. Original drawing in ink on paper, 220 x 290 mm., ms. notations in ink and pencil; in fine condition, mounted. Whaling and its gruesome accoutrements. A finely-executed nineteenth-century technical drawing showing the tryworks and various implements involved in on-board whale processing. This drawing, with its various manuscript corrections, may have been a preliminary work for a French publication on whaling. It is drawn with the usual competence and finesse associated with French maritime art of this period. The upper section of the drawing shows different types of harpoon, lance, forks, ladles and strainers, and a sail-buoy used to mark whale carcasses. The lower section of the drawing shows the "tryworks" - the on-board furnace used for rendering whale blubber into oil. The tryworks was the most distinguishing feature of a whaleship, and consisted of two cast-iron trypots set into a brick furnace. At the time when this drawing was made, French whaling activity was mainly concentrated in the Pacific, where a formidable fleet operated even before any French colonies were established in the area.

        Essai Géologique sur l'Écosse

      Seven folding lithographed plates & two folding maps (one hand-colored). x, [2], 519, [4] pp. 8vo, orig. pink wrappers (quite restored & rebacked), uncut. Paris: Courcier, [1820]. First edition of the earliest geological account of Scotland. While a student at the University of Edinburgh, Boué (1794-1881), became interested in geology through the influence of his teacher, the mineralogist Robert Jameson. Boué's rambles throughout Scotland allowed him to form his own conclusions as to the origin and age of the many igneous rocks of that country. This work contains much original information. "Boué "distinguished very exactly between basaltic sheets and dykes, and described the various volcanic rocks petrographically. Although a student of Jameson, he attached himself to Hutton's part in regard to the origin of basalt, phonolite, trachyte, porphyry, and granite."-Zittel, p. 270. A very good copy, entirely uncut, of a scarce book, preserved in a morocco-backed slipcase. ❧ D.S.B., II, pp. 341-42. Geikie, The Founders of Geology, p. 264-"In many respects this remarkable work was far in advance of its time, particularly in regard to the views expressed in it regarding the trappean rocks." .

        Des Capitains James Cook Beschreibung seiner Reise um die Welt

      Wien & Krems: B. Ph. Bauer, 1820. Three volumes, duodecimo, each with folding frontispiece; almost pristine in the original printed blue wrappers, manuscript shelf-marks to spines, advertisements for Campe's "Merkwürdiger Reisebeschreibungen", in a simple modern slipcase. Very rare, particularly in such remarkable original condition: a children's version of Cook's third voyage. The attractive plates depict respectively canoes off the coast of Tahiti, the interior of a house in Unalaska, and "Summer and Winter" dwellings of Kamchatka. 'Cook's Third Voyage for children. Translated by J.H. Campe and retold in dialogue between a father and children named Ferdinand, Antoinette, Jacobine, and Wilhelm' (Forbes). Joachim Campe (1746-1818) was a prolific writer for children, producing a vast array of works mainly concerned with disseminating information about voyages of discovery. Von Schutz was a Romantic writer and playwright, translator of Casanova into German, and general man of letters. The wrappers are not only charming but also quite interesting for the detailed advertisements for Campe's "collection of remarkable voyages", which at the time of printing included some twelve volumes including, as no. 12, de Lesseps' account of La Pérouse, as well as Byron, Carteret, Wallis, and Cook's first two voyages. The only set recorded by both Beddie and Forbes is in the Mitchell Library.

        FOLKESTONE FROM THE LEAS. A fine original watercolour drawing of Folkestone in the early nineteenth century, before the harbour improvements and the arrival of the railway. There are no less than three Customs cutters depicted, emphasising the switch of resources to the Preventive Men as a result of the cessation of hostilities. Folkestone had at this time a major Customs presence due to the port's well-known connection with the 'Free Trade'. *Provenance: We have a record of this work having passed through our hands about 30 years ago. It was purchased in the Acrise Place sale and sold to Dr C.H. Bishop, the late Folkestone historian, whose collection was dispersed after his death some years ago.

      Original watercolour no signature or date but c. 1820 - Watercolour on paper 19 x 14 inches, recently mounted in conservation materials and framed in a classic gilt moulding. A very well-observed watercolour, confidently painted by an unidentified artist. Slightly faded but in fine condition. Looking east from a point just west of the top of the present day Road of Remembrance, with open fields where Albion Villas now stand. In the foreground, sheep are grazing and a couple are walking arm in arm along the cliff path, with the unrestored Parish Church in the middle distance and the Georgian and medieval buildings of Church Street behind. Perched on top of the cliff is a small walled look-out post which was presumably the south-western end of the Battery, with a building not far away which may well be the Battery Blockhouse itself. Behind these in the distance we see the two Martello towers on the East Cliff and beyond these, the cliffs to Shakespeare's Cliff outside Dover. From a broken fence in the foreground we see a rough path leading down the cliff , and we also look down on the Harbour and Lower Road. Two customs cutters are drawn up the beach and a gang of men are in the act of pulling one of the craft over on its side to be worked on. Behind this we see three sides of the early harbour, and Copt Point beyond. Shipping is entering the harbour mouth and several fishing smacks dot the sea. Another fast-looking customs cutter is standing off the beach, on which there are two bathing machines and a lugger being launched.

        EXPERIMENTA CIRCA EFFECTUM, etc. Experiences sur l'effet du conflict electrique sur l'aiguille animantee

      Paris: Crochard, 1820. Flexible paper boards. Fine. 448 pages. Period flexible paper boards, with light blue paper over very thin pasteboard, laid endpapers and stub. Evidence that the textblock was originally stab-stitched and then sewn when the binding was applied. Paper spine label with manuscript titling, and paper label and 2 chalked numbers on the spine. Annales de Chimie et de Physique, Tome XIV complete with half title, entire volume offered. Flexible paper boards. Contains Oersted's "EXPERIMENTA CIRCA EFFECTUM, etc. Experiences sur l'effet du conflict electrique sur l'aiguille animantee" on pages 417-420, a very important work that led to the Discovery of Electromagnetism and informed subsequent work done by Ampere, Arago, Maxwell and Faraday. Initially published in a rare Latin pamphlet (known to Bern Dibner in only a few copies), this important discovery was published "nearly simultaneously" after Oersted sent announcements in July 1820 to French, German and English publications (including the one offered here). The article explains the first law of electromagnetism, which states that an electrical current can generate a magnetic field circular to the flow of the electric current. It is remarkable given all the experimentation with electricity done in the years before it's publication that this discovery wasn't noticed (or if it was, it's significance wasn't understood) by the many scientists working in the area. Oersted actually did a basic demonstration of the effect in a lecture in front of fairly accomplished scientists, who paid it little attention at the time. But after subsequent experimentation, Oersted was able to prove out his theory with simple and stronger apparatus and rushed it to publication. (variations of the Oersted apparatus is still used to demonstrate this effect in schools today). This French translation is one of several published in July 1820, primacy currently unknown. Many listings call this the first French edition, but we have been unable to confirm this to date.It is remarkable that this volume still retains it's period binding - a binding style that for many years was supposed to be temporary. Rare thus, and much prized by collectors. See "Oersted and the Discovery of Electromagnetism" by Bern Dibner for a thorough historical treatment. Also PMM 282, Dibner 61, Horblit 3b. (all referring to the first edition in Latin).

Literatur: Maillinger II, 1421; Dussler 6b; Winkler 003.8. Inkunabel der Lithographie! Aus der 6 Blatt umfassenden Folge von Pferde-Darstellungen Thierstudien nach der Natur und auf Stein gezeichnet von Albrecht Adam.. "Seinem (Adams) um 1808 einsetzenden, zunehmend malerischen Zeichenstil kam die neu entwickelte Lithographie entgegen. Winkler bezeichnet 1811 als das Jahr der Entstehung eines ersten Blattes in dieser Technik. In der Folgezeit hat sich Albrecht Adam gerne der Lithographie bedient, neben verschiedenen Serien entstanden zahlreiche Einzelblätter.... Diese neue Möglichkeit der Vervielfältigung kam Adam in jeder Beziehung entgegen, denn sie befreite ihn vom Zwang zur Wiederholung, der manchen ausgeführten, thematisch wiederholten Ölbildern anzumerken ist. Adam verwandte auf die Lithographie größte Sorgfalt, indem er sie mit vielen Studien vorbereitete - anders als manche Ölbilder, die er notfalls a la prima auf die Leinwand malte. In den 1820 einsetzenden Bildfolgen, bei denen es sich fast immer um Pferdedarstellungen handelt, wird zugleich ihr wissenschaftlicher Aspekt deutlich. Albrecht Adam hat stets mit fremden Verlegern gearbeitet. Erst als sein Sohn Julius I (1826 - 1874) bei Senefelder das Lithographieren gelernt hatte und eine eigene Anstalt aufmachte, konnte die autarke Familie selber drucken."

        Travels in Brazil in the Years 1815, 1816, 1817

      London: Henry Colburn, 1820. First edition.. The endpapers show light foxing and a bit of soiling, the page edges only have some discoloration, light rubbing to the original marbled boards, the text and aquatint engraved plates are generally bright and clean with almost no signs of use; a tight copy in very good condition.. Pp. viii, 335; 1 large folding hand-colored map, 6 fine aquatint plates engraved by J. H. Clark and H. Meyer with all original tissue guards present. Later one-half dark brown calf leather, spine with 5 raised bands with green morocco spine lettered in gilt and with 13 gilt panel lines decorating the spine, over original marbled boards, sm 4to (11 x 8 1/2 inches). Originally published in German in 1820, this first edition in English was published the same year in London. The first German edition included an atlas of 22 plates that was not published with the English edition (see Borba de Moraes, Bibliographia brasiliana, volume 2). The author was a German explorer, ethnologist and naturalist. He led a pioneering expedition to southeast Brazil between 1815-1817 (documented in this volume), which first revealed to Europeans the real images of Brazilian Indians. The German edition of this work was translated into several languages and recognized as one of the greatest contributions to the knowledge of Brazil at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Prince Maximilian collected many examples of ethnography, and a large number of specimens of flora and fauna of the area, still preserved in museum collections, notably in the Linden Museum, Stuttgart. The genus Neuwiedia Blume (Orchidaceae) was named for him (from Wiki).

Caesar Metz war der Bruder des Landschaftsmalers Friedrich Metz (1820-1901) und des Architekten und Landschaftsmalers Ludwig Metz (1822-1886). 1838-1843 studierte Metz am Städelschen Kunstinstitut, dann war er Privatschüler von H. Funk (1807-1877). In diese Jahre fallen die ersten Aufenthalte in Kronberg im Taunus, zusammen mit seinem Bruder Friedrich. 1844 siedelte Metz nach München über, wo er Kontakt zu Carl Rottmann (1797-1850) hatte, dessen Werk einigen Einfluß auf sein eigenes malerisches Schaffen ausübte. 1852/53 bereiste er Italien, lebte in Rom und ließ sich dann 1853 wieder in München nieder. Bei der Frankfurter historischen Kunstausstellung 1881 war er mit mehreren Gemälden vertreten. In deutschen Museen ist Metz mit sechs Landschaftsgemälden vertreten.

        The Honourable Sir Henry Russell, Bart, Chief Justice of Bengal

      1820 - A dramatic portrait of Sir Henry Russell by the renowned orientalist painter George Chinnery. This is a wonderful portrait of Sir Henry Russell by the celebrated English artist George Chinnery. Henry Russell became an esteemed judicator in India where he was noted for his pursuance of justice and equality. Russell earned his unimpeachable reputation when he sentenced an English cadet to death for maliciously burning down a local inhabitant's hut. In pronouncing his judgment, Russell declared, "the natives are entitled to have their character, property, and lives protected; and as long as they enjoy that privilege from us, they give their affection and allegiance in return'. With this judgment Russell established a precedence in Indian legislation that deemed both Englishman and Indian equal under the law. This commanding portrait was commissioned from Chinnery by the local inhabitants of Calcutta, as a mark of admiration for this remarkable man who saw equality and justice above country and race. Chinnery painted a number of portraits while abroad, such as this one of Sir Russell, but he is best remembered for the large number of landscapes and decorative studies he made of oriental scenes in China and India. He developed a calligraphic style in his rapid sketches of local life that show him to have been one of the most visually perceptive of all European artists who travelled and worked in the East. (DNB) O'Donoghue, Catalogue of Engraved British Portraits. in the British Museum 1. Mezzotint. In excellent condition apart from some overall light soiling in the margins and a skillfully mended tear in the upper right margin outside the plate mark. Image size: 24 1/4 x 17 7/8 inches.

      Whitmore and Fenn, London 1820 - The Naval Chronology of Great Britain or an historical account of the Naval and Maritime events from the commencement of the War in 1803, to the end of the year 1816. Also particulars of the most inportant Courts-Martial, votes of Parliament, Lists of Flag Officers in Commission and of promotions for each year. A work of invaluable reference on the British Navy during the period of the Napoleonic Wars, and remarkably detailed, using, amongst others, the first hand accounts of officers and sailors involved in the engagements. Many of the plates record events based on the drawings of officers participating in the battles depicted. "The object of this work is, more particularly, to perpetuate the names of those individuals who have, by their talents, courage, and professional abilities, increased the honour and reputation of the British Navy, and secured the peace and independence of the country." 60 coloured plates with plate list at the end of volume three, collated and complete. The plate page headers are printed in blue, confirming that they were contemporarily coloured at issue, and distinguishing them from later coloured copies (Tooley). Contemporary full calf with gilt and blind, recently rebacked to a high standard. Slight worm ingress to page peripherals in volume two but not affecting print areas, otherwise very good throughout.

        Marchand de Paniers Original Nineteenth Century Watercolor of French Tradesman

      British Isles& :, c. 1820.. Archivally framed in Ivory rag matting with neo-classical gilt moulding.. Fine condition/& . A scarce and charming original early nineteenth century watercolor painting on wove paper. (7 x 7.25 inches, 177 x 186 mm.) The painting has been tipped onto ecru wove album paper of the period, as was the custom, yet the watercolors remain vibrant and rich. Although the origin of this lovely painting is unknown, a refined and experienced hand clearly created this detailed and elegant composition. The details are fine; both the tones and shading display the painter's astute understanding of composition and perspective. The artist no doubt was an armchair or "parlor" watercolorist, likely an aristocratic gentlewoman or man who sought inspiration from the vast array of published volumes, complete with engraved plates, of the trades, and costumes of then exotic regions of the globe, thus the inspiration seems apparent. &

Inkunabeln der Lithographie! - Vollrandige Abdrucke, die Abbildungen sämtlich von vorzüglicher Druckqualität, zu den Außenrändern hin etwas angeschmutzt und mit winzigen Einrissen. Provenienz: Sammlung Heidelbergensis HM (ligiert), nicht bei Lugt. 1820 entstand die lithographische Folge von sechs Blatt mit Ansichten des Heidelberger Schlosses, die zu den Höhepunkten des künstlerischen Steindrucks der Inkunabelzeit zählt. Unter Verwendung von ein bis zwei Tonplatten gelang es Fries in meisterlicher Weise das Miteinander von romantischer Ruine und Landschaft im Wechsel des Lichts atmosphärisch dicht wiederzugeben. Zu den bedeutendsten Landschaftszeichnern der deutschen Romantik gehört der frühverstorbene, aus einer Heidelberger Bankiersfamilie stammende Ernst Fries. In seiner Heimatstadt erhielt er seinen ersten Unterricht zusammen mit den Freunden C.Ph. Fohr (1795-1818) und C. Rottmann (1797-1850) bei des letzteren Vater Friedrich Rottmann (1768-1816). Nach seiner Lehrzeit in Karlsruhe studierte er 1815/1816-1817 an der Münchener Akademie. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Heidelberg unternahm er 1818 ausgedehnte Studienreisen an Rhein und Mosel. 1823-1827 hielt sich Fries in Rom im Kreis von L. Richter (1803-1884), J.A. Koch (1768-1839) und J.M. von Rohden (1778-1868) auf. Die Jahre 1827-1830 verbrachte er abwechselnd in Heidelberg und München. 1831 wurde er zum Hofmaler in Karlsruhe ernannt. Sein tragischer Selbstmord in Wahnvorstellungen eines Scharlachfiebers beendete die vielversprechende Entwicklung einer großen künstlerischen Begabung.

        Ivanhoe: A Romance

      Edinburgh: printed for Archibald Constable and Co., 1820 First edition, first issue with page 159 misnumbered. Three volumes, with all half-titles and the three pages of publisher&#39;s advertisements at the rear of Volume III present. Finely bound in full dark brown morocco by Curtis Walters, with five raised bands to the spine, spine compartments ruled and decoratively stamped in gilt, spine lettered in gilt, boards ruled in gilt, all edges gilt, gilt turn-ins. A beautiful copy, with some light wear to the extremities, minor rubbing to the hinges, a hint of light toning to the spines, some minor offsetting to the edges of the free endpapers, otherwise bright and fresh pages. A near fine and attractive copy, free of any restorations or repairs. Widely considered Scott&#39;s most popular novel, Ivanhoe is a historical novel set in late 12th century England during the reign of Richard I. Specifically, Ivanhoe, set in 1194 shortly after the Third Crusade, presents the development of modern England as the result of the enmity between the Saxons and Normans. The mythical text is narrated by the fictional protagonist Wilfred of Ivanhoe, a Saxon, and includes many notable historical figures including Richard the Lionheart, Robin Hood and the Merry Men, among others. An instant bestseller with resounding literary significance, Ivanhoe sold out of its first printing of 10,000 copies within two weeks and was credited with catalyzing the popularity of historical fiction.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

Ein kurzer Studienaufenthalt in Leipzig 1793/94 legte den Grundstein für seine umfassende Allgemeinbildung. 1796 gründete B. in Dortmund mit zwei Kompagnons eine eigene Großhandelsfirma für englische Manufakturwaren. Nach einem Zerwürfnis mit seinen Partnern entschloß er sich, nach Holland zu gehen, in das Hauptabsatzgebiet seines Unternehmens; zunächst in Arnheim, ließ er sich 1802 in Amsterdam nieder und machte sich selbständig. Wegen der Auswirkungen, die die Kontinentalsperre auf das Geschäft hatte, wechselte B. 1805 zum Buchhandel und gründete in Amsterdam die Buchhandlung Rohloff & Comp. (seit 1807 Kunst- und Industrie-Comptoir). Seit 1814 trägt der Verlag den Namen F. A. Brockhaus. Auf der Leipziger Buchhändlermesse zu Michaelis 1808 kaufte B. die Rechte an einem unvollendeten Konversationslexikon, das 1796 von Renatus Gotthelf Löbel und Christian Wilhelm Franke begonnen worden war. Den Restbestand dieses Werkes lieferte er seit 1809 unter dem neuen Titel Conversations-Lexikon oder kurz gefaßtes Handwörterbuch (6 Bde.) aus; 1809 und 1811 erschienen zwei Ergänzungsbände. B. pendelte zunächst zwischen Amsterdam und Leipzig, siedelte mit dem Verlag 1811 ins ostthüringische Altenburg über und verlegte 1817/18 den Firmensitz schließlich nach Leipzig, wo er eine eigene Druckerei errichtete. 1818 wurde er Leipziger Bürger und baute systematisch seinen Verlag aus. Er pflegte Literatur und Wissenschaft und wurde der erste Verleger Schopenhauers, zunächst von "Die Welt als Wille und Vorstellung" (1819), später von dessen Gesamtwerk. Bis zu B.&#146; Tod zählte der Verlag u.a. Friedrich von Raumer, Henrik Steffens, Friedrich Rückert und Johann Heinrich Voß zu seinen Autoren. . Das Konversationslexikon wurde ein großer Erfolg; die fünfte Auflage erschien 1819/20 in zehn Bänden unter dem Titel Allgemeine Deutsche Real-Encyklopädie für die gebildeten Stände (Conversations-Lexicon). In den knapp 18 Jahren seines Wirkens in Leipzig rückte B. in die erste Reihe der deutschen und international anerkannten Verleger auf. Er kämpfte mit seinen Standesgenossen erfolgreich gegen Nachdruck und Zensur und konnte seinem Sohn Heinrich, der in der Leitung des Unternehmens nachfolgte, ein wohlbestelltes Haus übergeben. Seine entscheidende Leistung lag darin, daß er den Namen Brockhaus zum Synonym für Konversationslexika machte und die deutsche Lexikographie im 19.Jh. zu ihren großen Erfolgen führte. (DBE) - Hier die wohl interessanteste Ausgabe des Lexikons in der Originalfassung, laut Brockhaus zufolge die, die die "aufgeregte politische Stimmung des Jahres 1819 verraten" habe. Deutsch Priv.

Botaniste amateur, il possédait lun des herbiers les plus riches d'Europe contenant plus de 250 000 spécimens. Le botaniste suisse Pyrame de Candolle (1778-1841) venait étudier, nommer et décrire les plantes de la collection Delessert. C'est grâce à lui que ce dernier eut l'idée de publier un ouvrage proposant une représentation fidèle de plusieurs centaines de plantes nouvelles à l'époque. L'ouvrage, rédigé en latin, parut en 5 volumes publiés respectivement en 1820, 1823, 1839 et 1846. Candolle fut chargé des diagnoses des plantes et les illustrations furent confiées pour les deux premiers volumes à l'illustrateur-botaniste Pierre Jean François Turpin (1775-1840), Toussaint-François Node-Véran(1773-1852), peintre officiel du jardin des plantes de Montpellier.
