        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. Mendelssohn I, p. 290. [Attributes: First Edition]

        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.

        Sketches Illustrative of the Manners and Costumes of France, Switzerland, and Italy

      Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy / Hatchard and Son. Hardcover. B00OL7ELOE 1821 first edition Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy / Hatchard and Son (London), 10 x 12 3/4 inches tall marbled boards over burgundy leather spine and tips, gilt-lettered black leather label and gilt ruling to spine, unpaginated, [4], iv, [2] p., [45] leaves, [49] leaves of plates (1 folded), complete. Fore and bottom page edges untrimmed. Fifty hand-colored plates - including one folding plate - drawn and engraved by Richard Hicks Bridgens (1785-1846), combining copper engraving, soft ground etching and aquatint. Volume rebacked at some point, apparently employing the original boards, which are soiled, rubbed and edgeworn, and a bit bumped to the lower edge. Rubbing and edgewear to burgundy leather tips. Prior owner bookplates to front pastedown and free-endpaper. Heavy crease to blank front free-endpaper. Very light, mostly marginal foxing to a few of the plates. Light marginal soiling to extra engraved title page. Light offsetting or foxing to many of the textual pages opposite the plates. One-inch close tear to top edge of one plate. Otherwise, a very good copy of this handsome volume. Association copy: Bookplate to front pastedown of John Nolty, a New York city printer and president of the Evening-Post, as well as a renowned book collector and bibliophile (See 'John Nolte, 1851-1930, Book Lover, Printer'). Richard Bridgens was an artist, sculptor, designer and architect. He is perhaps best remembered for his pictures of West Indian scenery carried out after he closed his Birmingham architectural practice in 1825 and moved to Trinidad, where his wife had inherited a sugar plantation. The text in this volume is by English writer and physician John William Polidori (1795-1821), whose most successful work was the 1819 short story, The Vampyre, the first published modern vampire story.

        Map of the County of Kent, from an actual Survey made in the Years 1819 & 1820. By C. Greenwood. To the Nobility, Clergy and Gentry, of Kent, This Map of the County Is most respectfully Dedicated by the Proprietors.

      Published for the Proprietors, by G. Pringle Junior, No.70 Queen Street, Cheapside, July 19th, 1821., London, - Large engraved map, dissected and mounted on linen, fine original full-wash colour, edged in blue silk, housed in original diced calf pull-off slipcase, gilt ruled, lettered in gilt to spine, rubbed. A fine example of Greenwood's large-scale map of Kent.The maps by Christopher and John Greenwood set new standards for large-scale surveys. Although they were unsuccessful in their stated aim to map all the counties of England and Wales it is probably no coincidence that of the ones they missed, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Herefordshire, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Oxfordshire, all except Cambridgeshire were mapped by Andrew Bryant in a similar style and at the same period. From a technical point of view the Greenwoods' productions exceeded the high standards set in the previous century though without the decoration and charming title-pieces that typified large scale maps of that period.The Greenwoods started in 1817 with Lancashire and Yorkshire and by 1831 they had covered 34 counties. Their maps were masterpieces of surveying and engraving techniques, and in view of the speed at which they were completed, their accuracy is remarkable. They mark the boundaries of the counties, hundreds and parishes, churches and chapels, castles and quarries, farmhaouses and gentlemen's seats, heaths and common land, woods, parliamentary representatives and distances between towns. The price of 3 guineas each compares with the the first edition Ordnance Survey sheets of 7s 6d, though the latter did not relate to complete counties.

        Original Photograph

      Sixteenth president of the U.S. Pioneering photographer ALEXANDER GARDNER (1821-82) photographed Lincoln on several occasions, and some of his portraits are among the best known of Lincoln poses. Offered here is an original print by pioneering 20th century photography historian/collector FREDERICK HILL MESERVE (1865-1962). Known as "America's first great photograph collector," Meserve saved countless original Brady and other negatives from destruction and assigned numbers to Lincoln photographs ("Meserve numbers") still used today. Heavy stock 8" X 10", n.p., n.y. [ca. 1940s]. Very good. Slightest bit of quite minor edgewear. Well-known studio portrait depicting President Lincoln seated cross-legged and gazing at the viewer, left hand holding an open newspaper and right hand holding his glasses. On the verso, near the bottom, Meserve boldly writes in pencil (as was his habit) in his distinctive hand: "Abraham Lincoln / (Meserve No. 54) / By Gardner Aug. 9, 1863." The immediacy of any Meserve print is startling, for we've grown accustomed to seeing later generation reproductions of this portrait in books and other forms. Whether this print was made off the original negative is not clear -- often Meserve would state so in his pencilled description, but not consistently. A superb, rare piece printed by the preeminent photography historian of the 20th century.

First edition. Fifteen engraved plates (numbered 1-14), some folding, showing apparatus and chemical tables. Octavo, untrimmed. xix,[1],[752] pp. Text printed in double columns. Disbound: original paper boards are present but lacking the backstrip; and, the bookblock is split in several places. Ex-library; nineteenth-century bookplate on front pastedown and a small blind-stamped seal on the t.p., and no other marks. Very light dust-soiling to a couple of pages, and scant foxing to frontisp. and t.p., else very clean within. A scarce title, it is offered as is. Andrew Ure (b. Scotland, 1878; d. England, 1857), was a pioneer in teaching chemistry to artisans. His interest in the application of science to the arts and industry bore fruit in his Dictionary of Science. The work was originally undertaken at the request of the publishers as a revision of William Nicholson's Dictionary of Chemistry, but Ure said that so much of the latter was obsolete that the work had to be rewritten.

L'ouvrage est précédé d'une "Introduction qui comprendra les principaux évènements qui se sont passés depuis Mérovée jusqu'à Louis XII." Si l'on en croit Amaury Duval ("Monuments des arts du dessin chez les peuples tant anciens que modernes", 1829, p. 13), Dominique VIVANT DENON (1747-1825) serait le principal auteur de cet ouvrage dont la rédaction est attribuée à "une société d'hommes de lettres et d'artistes". Mais l'on ne sait rien de plus sur l'implication de Vivant Denon, en dehors des quatre textes qu'il rédigea sur des artistes du XVIIe siècle : le graveur Gérard Audran, le sculpteur Pierre Puget et les peintres Nicolas Poussin et Claude Gellée. Rousseurs éparses, parfois fortes, néanmoins BEL EXEMPLAIRE, dans une reliure de qualité au dos décoratif. NICE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

      Rome 1821 - Luigi Rossini was a master engraver who produced over one thousand plates of buildings, ruins, gardens and monuments. His career coincided with a period of great archeological activity. His etchings of Rome followed Piranesi's example, and reported the latest excavations to an avidly interested European audience. In turn, as they were carried home by Northern Europeans on the Grand Tour, the etchings fuelled worldwide interest in classical architecture., Image Size : 350x450 (mm), 13.75x17.75 (Inches), Platemark Size : 365x460 (mm), 14.375x18.125 (Inches), Paper Size : 520x740 (mm), 20.5x29.125 (Inches), Black & White, Copper Engraving

        Untitiled Two Horse Scene

      Printed in the lithographic studio of Delpech, Paris 1821 - This mid 19th century black and white lithograph after a drawing by Carle Vernet depicts two horses interacting. Measuring 16" x 22 1/2", the print shows mild foxing and a ragged left hand edge, evidence of previous binding. Antoine Charles Vernet, also known as Carle, was the son and pupil of the marine painter, Claude Joseph Vernet. From an early age he showed a tremendous aptitude for drawing and in 1782 was successful in winning the coveted Prix de Rome. Under the Empire, Vernet was awarded the Legion of Honor for his drawings of the Italian campaign. However, he is most noted as a painter and lithographer of horses, a subject to which he was devoted during the years of the Restoration. His work was so admired that Louis XVIII conferred the order of St. Michael upon him. At the beginning of the nineteenth century, horses were an invaluable aspect of everyday life. They provided transportation and sporting entertainment and thus, their breeding was of great importance. Artists celebrated the beauty and agility of the thoroughbred horse, as can be seen in Vernet¿s accomplished lithographs. Indeed, his equestrian passion was such that he himself was an avid horseman and just days before his death, at the age of seventy-eight, was seen racing as if he was a spry young man.
