      For Mouchez: DSB IX, p. 551.

Having not seen his wife and daughters for two years he felt quite homesick and eagerly awaited his return to France.The outside pages of 3 double leaves have rusty imprints of paperclips formerly used to keep the leaves together, 1 double leaf has a small hole slightly affecting three words and a few have minor tears along the fold. In very good condition. A detailed account of events and Mouchez's personal views during his third South American expedition.

        THE GALLERY OF NATURE AND ART: OR, A TOUR THROUGH CREATION AND SCIENCE

      London: Printed for R. N. Rose, 1821. A New Edition, carefully revised and corrected n. Hardcover. 216 x 133 mm (8 1/2 x 5 1/4"). Six volumes. A New Edition, carefully revised and corrected. Appealing contemporary brown polished calf, covers with gilt fleur-de-lys and blind-stamped palmette borders, large oblong octagonal panel at center of each board, ALL VOLUMES WITH A CONTEMPORARY LANDSCAPE PAINTING, three of these signed by R. Ashton, one dated 1821 (but all by the same hand), wide raised bands painted black and tooled in gilt, spine panels with central gilt arabesque surrounded by curling vines, gilt titling, marbled edges (very small and expert repairs apparently made to the ends of joints on two of the volumes). Seven illustrations within the text and a total of 94 engraved plates including a frontispiece for each volume, one of which is a foldout plate, and of which two plates are comprised of two illustrations each. Front flyleaves with ink inscription of Barbara Douglas Campbell, dated 1st January 1822, and with a later indecipherable inscription below. Just minor rubbing to joints and extremities (a portion of one joint with shallow damage from an insect), one landscape with a small cluster of gouges, superficial scratches to some of the other scenes, variable (mostly faint) offsetting from the plates, other trivial imperfections, but still AN EXTREMELY ATTRACTIVE SET, the text fresh and clean, and the bindings lustrous, with virtually all of their original appeal intact. These volumes are of special interest as an uncommon example of what J. A. Arnett first called a "landscape" binding in his "Bibliopegia" of 1835. The scenes here (two showing vessels on water, the rest cottages and castles, the latter mostly ruined) were apparently executed with pen and brush, perhaps using a weak solution of copperas. As Arnett indicates, the volumes would have been customarily "prepared by being paste washed, so as to present an uniform fawn-colour," and the designs were traced into the prepared surface and then colored with a wash--English examples normally using just a black wash. As Nixon says in his Broxbourne Library catalogue, "the technique is virtually a form of etching, since the copperas or other acidic solution bites into the leather, and the strength of the solution determines the depth of the blacks." The closest examples from the bookbinding literature to use for comparison seem to be the bindings described under Nixon's "Broxbourne" #102, Foot's "Henry Davis Gift" #199, and Oldham's "Shrewsbury," p. 163. As fulsomely described on the title page, our set is comprised of "new and entertaining descriptions of the most surprising volcanoes, caverns, cataracts, whirlpools, waterfalls, earthquakes, and other wonderful and stupendous phenomena of nature, forming a rich and comprehensive view of all that is interesting and curious in every part of the habitable world." Hence, we have here the account of notable phenomena bound in an equally notable phenomenon.

        Autograph letter signed to Sir Sidney Smith, with enclosed ms. description of an old Egyptian plaque in another hand

      Paris 1821 - Bottin, Sébastien (1764-1853). (1) Autograph letter signed to Admiral Sir [William] Sidney Smith (1764-1840). Paris, July 31, 1821. 1 page plus integral blank, on stationery of the Société Royale des Antiquaires de France. 317 x 219 mm. (2) Description d'une plaque d'or portant une inscription en lange et caractères grecs, du tems du troisième des Ptolemés . . . Manuscript in an unidentified hand, possibly that of Smith. N.p., n.d. [1821]. 2-1/2pp. 309 x 202 mm. Minor marginal fraying and spotting, a few small tears along folds.From the secretary of the Société Royale des Antiquaires de France to British Admiral Sir Sidney Smith, thanking Smith for the gift of a facsimile of an ancient Egyptian artifact. The original artifact, dating from the reign of Ptolemy III in the third century B.C.E., was a golden plaque measuring 6 x 2.5 inches, with an inscription in Greek commemorating Ptolemy III's dedication of a temple to Osiris. This plaque, discovered by Egyptian workers in the ruins of Canopus in 1818, came into the possession of Egypt's ruler, Mehmet Ali Pasha. Mehmet Ali sent the artifact to Admiral Sir Sidney Smith, who had played a major role in the defeat of invading French forces in Egypt during the Napoleonic Wars. Smith settled in France after Napoleon's final defeat at Waterloo and remained there for the rest of his life; it is thus not surprising that he presented his gift to a French institution rather than an English one. Bottin's letter reads in part:"Notre confrère Monsieur Jullien a remis à la Société royale des antiquaires de France, de votre part, le facsimile et un exemplaire de la description d'une plaque d'or portant inscription en lange et caractères grecs, du temps du troisième des Ptolémées, qui fut trouvée en 1818 dans les ruines de l'ancien Canopus, entre Rosette et Aléxandrie en Egypte, monument que vous tenez de l'amitié de Méhémet Aly Pasha. La Société a été aussi flattée de cet hommage de votre part, que contente de pouvoir encore insérer le calque et la description dans le troisième volume de ses mémoires dont l'impression est sur le point d'être terminée ; elle me charge d'avoir l'honneur de vous transmettre des remercîments."[Our colleague Mr. Jullien has, on your behalf, sent to the Société royale des antiquaires de France a facsimile and copy of the description of a golden plaque bearing an inscription in Greek and in Greek characters, from the time of Ptolemy III, which was found in 1818 in the ruins of ancient Canopus, between Rosetta and Alexandria, which you have through the friendship of Mehmet Ali Pasha.The Society was so pleased by your gift that it will insert the tracing and description in the third volume of its memoirs, which has nearly finished printing; they have given me the honor of transmitting their thanks.]The enclosed manuscript description of the plaque and facsimile, possibly written by Smith, goes into further detail about the plaque and the circumstances of its discovery. It gives the dimensions of the original plaque ("6 pouces de longeur par 2 de largeur") and translates the inscription as "Le Roi Ptolomé [fils] de Ptolomé et Arsinoé frères déifiés, et la Reine Berenice sœur et femme [du dit] [consacrent ou dédient] ce Temple, à Osiris" [King Ptolemy (son) of deified brothers (?siblings?) Ptolemy and Arsinoë, and Queen Berenice sister and wife (of same) (consecrate and dedicate) this temple to Osiris]. Also noted is the fact that the plaque was discovered "sur une pierre fondemantale, entre deux tuiles de matière vitrifiée" [on a foundation stone, between two glazed tiles], and that the glazes on the tiles, one blue and one green, had been analyzed by chemists to discover the nature of their coloring agents.

        Woodsia ilvensis; W. alpine, Pl. XLVII (Oblong Woodsia, Apline Woodsia)

      Thomas Moore (1821-1887) was an English gardener and botanist and studied ferns and fern allies from the British Isles . He served at curator of the Society of the Apothecaries Garden from 1848 to 1887 and in 1855 published ?The Ferns of Great Britain and Ireland .?This pressed nature print from ?The Ferns of Great Britain and Ireland,? titled, Woodsia ilvensis; W. alpine, Pl. XLVII, measures 21.5? x 14.75? and is in excellent condition with light discoloration around the edge. The ferns pressed on this engraving are commonly known as Oblong Woodsia and Alpine Woodsia. The green coloring of this press is vibrant and finely details the fronds and the root systems.From the early fifteenth century onwards experiments with making prints from pressed leaves and flowers were conducted. The first ventures into this technique were relatively simple with the specimen inked and paper laid upon it. Pressure was then applied by hand to gain an impression. This rather crude method was advanced and perfected during the nineteenth century by the Imperial Printing Office in Vienna.Plants were now passed under pressure between a lead and a steel plate and an electrotype made, on the lead plate, from the impression. It was this innovative technique that Thomas Moore chose for the creation of the plates in his splendid book, ?Ferns of Great Britain and Ireland ?.The plates were produced for Moore by Henry Bradbury and are the finest example of nature-printing available. Thomas Moore?s book heralded a craze for ferns or ?pteridomania? during the nineteenth century perhaps because of the exquisite delicacy of the images projected. In 1907, the Thomas Moore Fernery was built on the site of his original garden.

        Cartas dirigidas a S.M. El-Rey D. João VI. Desde 1817. A cerca do estado de Portugal e Brazil, e outros mais documentos .

      London, na Impreçaô [@sic] de Mess. Cox e Baylis, n.d. (1821). - iv, 80 p. 12°, stitched, in quarter-morocco slipcase. Some minor foxing. Six lines of print following text on p. 80 crossed out (as in all other copies we have seen). Very good condition. ---- FIRST EDITION. A rare and interesting book. Carneiro was a close friend of Hipólito da Costa, and personal physician to D. João VI, many times undertaking confidential missions for the king. Borba comments: "the year 1818 again found him in Rio de Janeiro, where he managed to be appointed chargé d'affaires in Switzerland, but he was never able to travel to Berne because his enemies, the many Portuguese ministers in London, for various reasons refused to grant him the travel allowance. Palmela, as Minister of Foreign Affairs, dismissed him in 1821, and he fell out of favour with D. João. He later joined the followers of D. Miguel, who created him Viscount of Condeixa. The opinions he expressed in articles in the Portuguese periodicals of London and in these @Cartas are those of a sincere liberal and supporter of a Portuguese constitution. He foresaw many political events and gave the Prince Regent good advice. He wrote to D. João in 1817 recommending he establish a constitution in Portugal to avoid the coming troubles and the independence of Brazil.The @Cartas are important and interesting documents for the study of Portuguese affairs in London and Rio de Janeiro before the Portuguese revolution and the independence of Brazil. They are very difficult to find today."Araujo Carneiro (1776-1849), a Portuguese physician, fled to London when the French invaded. There he contributed to every issue of the enormously influential @Correio Brasiliense, 1808-1822, and corresponded regularly with D. João. In 1812 he shocked society by eloping with the Marchioness de Alorna's daughter, who died soon thereafter. Although he was appointed chargé d'affaires to Switzerland in 1818, the Portuguese ministers refused to grant him a travel allowance, and he never reached his post. Soon afterwards he fell out of favor with D. João, and eventually became a follower of D. Miguel, who named him Visconde de Condeixa.---- Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 156-57.

      Rome, 1815 to 1821. - 4to. Altogether (4+4+4=) 12 pp. on 6 pp. To the Academy of Fine Art in Vienna, or rather to its secretary and committee, in truly original orthography: "Your precious letter [.] , as you can easily imagine, gave me much pleasure; in so far as it contained the fulfilment of my wishes, and will soon assist me out of my monetary difficulties [.] The news that His Majesty the Kaiser has most graciously willed a two year extension to my residence, moved His Excellency the Chevlier von Lebzeltern to offer me cheap rent for my studies and apartment in the Venetian Palace. I embraced this news so heartily, that I immediately joined His Majesty's approved Academy to reap its benefits. (Rome, 2nd February 1815). - J. N. Schaller was Chief Modeller at the Vienna Porcelain Works from 1811, and became a stipendiary from 1812 to 1823 in Rome, where he associated himself with the Nazarene movement. "He refused a call to Munich from King Ludwig I of Bavaria, and worked on several occasions for the Walhalla. In 1823 Schaller was appointed Professor at the Academy of Fine Art in Vienna. Among his pupils were numerous sculptors later active in the construction of the Ringstraße. As a link between Classicism and Romantic Historicism, Schaller exerted a profound influence on the following artistic generation." (DBE). - Slightly browned due to paper and somewhat spotty.

      The original pen drawing, 2 wild boar, for plate 20 'Phacochoerus Haroia' of the mammalia section of Ehrenberg's work. This plate is signed 'Bürde fec.' The orginal pen drawing is not signed and in pencil is written 'Phacochoerus * Arroia Feminina ex Habessinia', and in ink 'Harroia'. Added to this attractive drawing is the original proof plate, before letters. "The journey led through the Libyan desert to Cyrenaica, to Fayum in 1821, toward the Nile to Dongola, and the shores of the Red Sea (in 1823) and yielded an unexpected large body of scientific result. Of the animal species alone, 3.987 (34.000 individual zoological objects) were sent to the collections of the Berlin Zoological Museum..." (DSB). Ehrenberg was the only survivor of the expedition. //B.M.(N.H.) II, 515; Junk Rara 138.

      . London : Printed for Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy, Paternoster Row., 1821, 8°, VIII, 227, (3) pp., with 8 hand-coloured examples of sedinments on one text leaf, Halbleinenband der Zeit; Rücken erneuert; feines unbeschnittenes Exemplar.. Erste Ausgabe! - William Prout (1785-1850), berühmter Arzt und Chemiker, beschäftigte sich namentlich mit der organischen Chemie und hielt von 1813 an in seinem Hause Vorlesungen, zu deren Besuchern auch Astley Cooper gehörte. Sein zuerst 1821 erschienenes Werk "Inquiry into the nature and treatment of gravel, calculus and other diseases of the urinary organs" verschaffte ihm großen Ruf. - Prout war einer der ersten, die Licht in viele dunkle Punkte des animalischen Lebens brachten; er gab zuerst eine klare Idee über die Zusammenstellung des Urins, die Verschiedenheiten desselben bei verschiedenen Thieren, die Steinbildung, und förderte gleichzeitig die Kenntniss der Verdauung durch den Nachweis, das der Magen im normalen Zustand stets freie Salzsäure enthält. cit. nach Hirsch IV, p.632f. - - Prout, "whose name in chemistry is particularly associated with his hypothesis that all atomic weights are a multiple of the atomic weight of hydrogen". J. Büttner & C. Habrich, Roots of Clinical Chemistry, p.84 - - "In 1815, Vogel published his researches on the reduction of metallic salts by sugar, and this work was carried further by William Prout who proved that urinary sugar differed from cane sugar." Murphy, p.149 - - Prout is also remembered, however, for his researches into physical chemistry. In 1815, based on the tables of atomic weights available at the time, he anonymously hypothesized that the atomic weight of every element is an integer multiple of that of hydrogen, suggesting that the hydrogen atom is the only truly fundamental particle (which he called protyle, and that the atoms of the other elements are made of groupings of various numbers of hydrogen atoms. While Prout's hypothesis was not borne out by later more-accurate measurements of atomic weights, it was a sufficiently fundamental insight into the structure of the atom that in 1920, Ernest Rutherford chose the name of the newly discovered proton to, among other reasons, give credit to Prout. - cf.

        Memoir of Jemima Wilkinson, A Preacheress of the Eighteenth [18th] Century ~ Containing an Authentic Narrative of Her Life.

      S.P. Hull, Geneva 1821 - 12mo, 206pp., Spine is faded. Gilt lettered leather cover. Rebound at some point by a binder from Bath, NY. New endpapers. This is the original 1821 printing. Hinges cracked inside, but strong. Jemima Wilkinson, who in 1790 founded the religious community of Jerusalem in western New York was known for her visions, religious dreams, and prophesying. During the course of a fever, she fell into a prolonged trance from which she emerged with the conviction that she had died. She believed that her original soul and body was now inhabited by the `Spirit of Life' which came from God "to warn a lost and guilty, gossiping, dying World to flee from the wrath to come." One of her followers, Sarah Richards also had visions. She would swoon as she went into vision and lie "motionless and apparently lifeless" for a while. Afterwards, she would rise up to deliver her message. Curiously enough, less than 30 miles away, Joseph Smith had the revelations that founded the Mormon religion several years after Wilkinson. William Miller, another Upstate New York farmer, also came from this region and began the Seventh Day Adventists. New York itself is known as the "burned over district" because so many revivalist preachers come from this same area. Howes H-761 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

It is one of the Autonomous regions of Portugal, with Madeira Island and Porto Santo Island being the only inhabited islands. Although technically located in the African Plate, some 650 km (360 mi) off the North African coast, Madeira belongs ethnically, culturally and politically to Europe, some 955 km (583 mi) from the European mainland. Madeira was discovered by Portuguese sailors some time between 1418 and 1420. The archipelago is considered to be the first discovery of the exploratory period initiated by Henry the Navigator of Portugal. It is a popular year-round resort, noted for its Madeira wine, flowers, and embroidery artisans, as well as its New Year's Eve celebrations that feature a spectacular fireworks show, which is the largest in the world according to the Guinness World Records.

        Botrychium Lunaria; Ophioglossum vulgatum; O. lustianicum, Pl. LI (Moonwort, Southern adderstongue, The dwarf adders tongue)

      Thomas Moore (1821-1887) was an English gardener and botanist and studied ferns and fern allies from the British Isles. He served at curator of the Society of the Apothecaries Garden from 1848 to 1887 and in 1855 published ?The Ferns of Great Britain and Ireland.?This pressed nature print from ?The Ferns of Great Britain and Ireland,? titled, Botrychium Lunaria; Ophioglossum vulgatum; O. lustianicum, Pl. LI, measures 21.75? x 14.75? and is in excellent condition. The ferns pressed on this engraving are commonly known as Moonwort, Southern adderstongue and dwarf adders tongue. The green coloring of these pressed ferns are vibrant and show the frond and leaf details and the root systems. From the early fifteenth century onwards experiments with making prints from pressed leaves and flowers were conducted. The first ventures into this technique were relatively simple with the specimen inked and paper laid upon it. Pressure was then applied by hand to gain an impression.This rather crude method was advanced and perfected during the nineteenth century by the Imperial Printing Office in Vienna . Plants were now passed under pressure between a lead and a steel plate and an electrotype made, on the lead plate, from the impression. It was this innovative technique that Thomas Moore chose for the creation of the plates in his splendid book, ?Ferns of Great Britain and Ireland ?. The plates were produced for Moore by Henry Bradbury and are the finest example of nature-printing available. Thomas Moore?s book heralded a craze for ferns or ?pteridomania? during the nineteenth century perhaps because of the exquisite delicacy of the images projected. In 1907, the Thomas Moore Fernery was built on the site of his original garden.

        Notes on the Cape of Good Hope made during an excursion in that colony in the year 1820.

      John Murray, London 1821 - Contemporary brown tree calf, rebacked with new leather on spine and corners, flat, gilt ruled spine, divided in five compartments with a gilt title on a red label in the second compartment, 8vo., pp. iv, 207. Some sporadic light foxing and minor wear to the corners. On one page a remark has been written in old pen, after which it has been crossed out in the same pen. The bookplate of the Africana collector Lionel. B. Goldschmidt on first free endpaper. New endpapers. Mendelssohn, listing this book under its title as the author then still was unknown, states: "The anonymous author evidently did not remain long in the Cape, but he gives an interesting account of the state of the country at the time of his visit. He remarks on the opposition of the 'Dutch Boers' to the settlement of the Cape by Europeans, and observes, 'With still greater animosity and alarm do they contemplate the extensive plan of colonisation now about to be carried out by the British Government.' Much is related concerning the habits of the Dutch, whose manners, it is stated, 'are prepossessing to travellers', although in other respects their habits are severely criticised. Some parts of the country are recommended to settlers who possess substantial sums of money with which to commence farming, and the Knysna district, in particular is well spoken of for this purpose. . By no means a pleasing picture is drawn of the morals of the inhabitants, and the writer was certainly not enthusiastic as to the advantages of the Cape." The last part of the book deals with the author's visit to St. Helena, where he finds it impossible to hear any news about Napoleon, there imprisoned at that time, while he writes about the cost of living on the island: "Living is so enormously expensive that none who have a ship, to resort to, think of remaining on shore." At first the book was attributed to Barrow (without substantial evidence), but in 1943 it was Alfred Gordon-Brown who attributed this book to Blount. An attractive copy of a hard to find book.

        Théorie des machines simples, en ayant égard au frottement de leurs parties et à la roideur de cordages. Nouvelle édition.

      Paris, Bachelier. 1821 - In- 4°, m. pergamena. (8), 368 pp. e 10 tavole incise in rame ripiegate f.t. Bell' esemplare intonso con chiarissime, insignificanti velature di umidità in alcune pagine e un rinforzo nel margine bianco dell' ultima tavola. E' questa l' edizione più completa e rara delle memorie del Coulomb sulla meccanica publicate dal 1773 al 1790 in vari periodici scientifici. L' autore, famoso fisico e ingegnere militare, partecipò a un concorso bandito dall' Académie des sciences di Parigi nel 1781 e lo vinse con una memoria divenuta classica, dal titolo Théorie des machines simples. Essa è divisa in due parti: la prima è dedicata all' attrito radente, al distacco e dinamico; la seconda alla rigidità delle funi. Dagli esperimenti fatti e la sucessiva elaborazione matematica dei risultati, Coulomb poteva enunciare le leggi sull' attrito, ritenute valide ancor oggi. La publicazione della memoria gli fruttò l' amissione (1784) all' Académie des Sciences di Parigi. Riprese lo studio della torsione elastica dei fili con un dispositivo sperimentale di sua invenzione e stabilì le relative leggi ancora attuali. "The collection of Coulomb's mechanics memoires is rather rare" (D.S.B., III, pp. 439-47). Poggendorff, I, 487-88. Darmstaedter, pp.219, 228, 240, 266.
