        Belisar. Ueber den Unterricht der Blinden. Mit Kupfern.

      Berlin: Johann Friedrich Weiss 1821 - 2 parts in 1 vol. with separate registers and pagination, but all called for in Contents (see below), with an engraved title with a vignette, and 3 engraved plates, 2 folding (see below), a few spots here and there, pp. ii, [3-] 72, 152, [2], 8vo, modern marbled boards, good The second edition of this important work on the blind, and specifically on the Berlin Foundation for the Blind. The title-page seems to be that of the 1808 (first) edition with 1821 added (stamped) at the foot: but is clearly the second edition, the Foreword referring specically to the 1808 edition as the first, and another work by the author intervening between that edition and the present one. Separately paginated, but included in the Contents at the end are, in their original languages, Diderot's Lettre sur les Aveugles, texts by Cheselden and Grant, and observations by Zeune (in Italian). The work also describes and illustrates devices for the blind for learning mathematics and geography: in these cases occur the plates. The mathematical plate is a representation of Saunderson’s counting table (this plate is slightly browned), and the geographical part is a double-hemisphere folding map of the world on 2 plates. The oceans are black, the continents grey, the mountain ranges white, and capitals, or other important, cities, are given a red dot.The work is rare in any edition. Of this edition WorldCat records 3 in Germany, the BL, and Wisconsin (vide Dan Albert’s Sourcebook of Ophthalmology).

UNPUBLISHEDDavid Hodgson, a Quaker, partner in the house of Cropper, Benson & Co, merchants at Liverpool, provided evidence on corn prices to the Agricultural Committee of 1821. Ricardo writes that the information he has provided was given to William Huskisson. He writes of the Political Economy Club that ?it may be instrumental in advancing the knowledge of the Science?. The Club had been founded a few days earlier on April 18th and its first meeting held on April 30th.See Sraffa, vol IX, p.182 for a letter to Hodgson 30 March 1822 [1] David Hodgson, a Quaker, partner in the house of Cropper, Benson & Co, merchants at Liverpool, provided evidence on corn prices to the Agricultural Committee of 1821. Ricardo wrote of David Hodgson in a letter to Hutches Trower 21st April 1821 "Mr Hodgson is a merchant and corn dealer of Liverpool, who expends annually a large sum of money in sending people about the country to examine into the state of the crop just before it is reaped. They do so by going from field to field at 2 or 3 miles distance from each other, and actually counting the ears, and weighing the grains in a square foot or yard; by which means they are enabled to compare it with the crops of former years. The last appears to have been an unusually abundant crop, greater than for many years".Sraffa, vol VIII, pp.370-372.

Kotzebue's important second Russiancircumnavigation to explore for a northwest passage is a cornerstone workof Pacific exploration with important descriptions of Hawaii, Californiaand Alaska. Kotzebue had earlier sailed with Captain Kruzenshtem in thefirst Russian circumnavigation, 1803-06. Leaving Kronstadt in 1815, theRurik rounded Cape Hom and visited Chile, Easter Island, and the MarshallIslands. He explored Hawaii, and the North American coast includingAlaska where he discovered the sound that now bears his name. Failing tofind a northwest passage from the Pacific to the Atlantic oceans, he wasforced to turn south where he visited the Marshall Islands, the Marianas,and several other groups of Islands on his return to Europe. Hisdescription of the northwest coast of America is a importantcontribution. The second volume contains a description of California andthe earliest scientific account of the Golden Poppy, California's stateflower. In California Kotzebue also picked up Vassilii PetrovichTarakanov (q.v.), a Russian hunter who had been captured by theCalifornians. Kotzebue's account of his ship's visit to San Francisco Bayin October of 1816 is accompanied by six plates. The third volumecontains the important scientific report of naturalist Adelbert vonChamisso's Bemerkungen und Ansichten, on the voyage's results. It isnoteable for his descriptions and remarks on the climate, flora, fauna,and peoples of California and the northwest coast of America."The workis of great importance in the early exploration of Alaska. "Rich in earlyoriginal source material on Alaska. Kotzebue belonged to that group ofoutstanding Russian naval officers of the first half of the nineteenthcentury, which included Kruzenshtern, Golovnin, Lisianskii, Sarychev, andothers." (Lada-Mocarski). "It was on this voyage that Kotzebue discoveredKotzebue Sound in Alaska, thinking for a time as he sailed east that hehad found the long sought north-east passage" (Streeter). The Hawaiianportion is extensive and contains important observations on life andcustoms during the reign of Kamehmeha I, whose famous "red vest" portraitby Choris is one of the illustrations. As a record of historical import,and as a collection of significant maps and beautiful plates, this workis one of he prime desiderata of Pacific voyages. Three distinct issuesof the first edition were published: eighty-eight copies were producedon very fine "Velin papier" with the plates hand coloured (issue A); anissue on regular handmade laid paper, of which a limited number of copieshave colour ed plates (issue B); and an issue on laid paper with theportrait plates coloured, but the fold ing plates in sepia aquatint(issue C). The present copy is a fine example of the second issuewith the plates hand coloured. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Bolling's Dam, Petersburgh, Virginia

      Philadelphia: published by M. Carey & Son, 1821]. Aquatint by Hill after Shaw, coloured by hand. Laid on archival mat board, 3 inch repaired tear in lower margin, not touching the image. In fine French washline mat. 12 1/2 x 14 1/2 inches. A rare example of a print from an extremely rare work that is now considered to be a 'milestone in American printmaking ... a foundation book for American color-plate publication, being the first publication in the United States of larger colored landscapes essentially scenic in effect" (Koke). This sweeping image of Bolling's Dam, Petersburgh, Virginia is from a suite of twenty plates published under the general title 'Picturesque Views of American Scenery'. The original intention had been to publish 36 plates in six parts but the work was abandoned after only four parts had appeared (published primarily by Matthew Carey & Son). Thomas Ash acquired the rights to the set and republished them in 1835. Any examples from either edition are now rare. Joshua Shaw, a British-born landscape artist of note, was inspired by the magificence of the American landscape ("in no other quarter of the globe are the majesty and loveliness of nature more strikingly conspicuous than in America."). Shaw set out to popularise the picturesque in America. His beautiful images were skillfully interpreted by engraver John Hill and the results can rightly be said to have been one of elements which led to the growth of what became the Hudson River School of landscape painting. The popularity of the Hudson River School from the mid-1820s onwards, paid dividends for the Shaw's work as well and Thomas Ash was encouraged to reprint the series in 1835. Deak 315.18; cf.

Nel 1805 Bonaparte affidò al Jaubert una delicata missione diplomatica in Persia, al fine di intavolare alcuni negoziati di alleanza con lo Shah, Fat'h Ali. Nel corso dell'avventuroso viaggio, descritto qui con grande abbondanza di notazioni geografiche, storiche, religiose, militari, folkloriche ed etnografiche, Jaubert fu anche fatto imprigionare dal pascià di Dogubeyazit e gettato per tre mesi in una cisterna asciutta.

        General and Particular Descriptions of the Vertebrated Animals Arranged Conformably to the Modern Discoveries and Improvements in Zoology

      Paternoster Row; Bond Street; Strand: Printed for Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy; Rodwell and Martin; and W. Wood, 1821. Hardcover. Very good. Edward Griffith (1790-1858) was a British zoologist and lawyer, and was an original member of the Zoological Society of London. This work was intended to be the first in a large series, but the remainder of the work was never completed. Here is a spectacular, contemporary half-leather binding with raised and tooled spine bands, tooled spine label, leather corners, marbled paper boards, matching marbled endpapers, and matching marbled text block edges. A striking and beaufiful example of the binders' craft. The binding is worn but intact. Do note that there is a full gutter break at the front endpapers, but the front cover remains fully and firmly attached to the spine and thus repair will be an easy matter of professionally reattaching the spine to the text block. The contents are spectacular, including the profuse color and black and white drawings. A previous owner's name, dated "1848", appears on the ffep, and the same owner's name is inked discretely at the top of the illustrated half-title.

The Edinburgh Review has been the title of three distinct intellectual and cultural magazines. The best known, longest-lasting and most influential of the three was the second, which was published regularly from 1802 to 1929. The second Edinburgh Review, founded in 1802, became one of the most influential British magazines of the 19th century. Started on 10 October 1802 by Francis Jeffrey, Sydney Smith and Henry Brougham, it was published by Archibald Constable in quarterly issues until 1929. It began as a literary and political review. Under its first permanent editor, Francis Jeffrey (the first issue was edited by Sydney Smith), it was a strong supporter of the Whig party and liberal politics, and regularly called for political reform. Its main rival was the Quarterly Review which supported the Tories. The magazine was also noted for its attacks on the Lake Poets, particularly William Wordsworth. Condition: In half-calf bindings with marbled boards. Externally, quite smart, though with some rubbing to the extremities. Five joints starting. Sixteen hinges strained. Internally, firmly bound (though with one leaf of volumeL detached). Pages are bright, though with some foxing, and marks to the endpapers. Slight loss to the edge of one page. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        New South Wales. A Return of the Annual Expenditure in the ColonyÖ

      London,: House of Commons, 24 May, 1821.. Foolscap folio leaf, docket title to rear, early manuscript foliation at top right corner ("199"); very fine, never folded. An interesting official record of the expenditure relating to the establishment of New South Wales and particularly the transportation of convicts to New South Wales. Without doubt this would have been compiled as part of the evidence relating to the Bigge Report and the governorship of Lachlan Macquarie.In striking original condition, this single sheet provides just the sort of detailed expenses which would damn Macquarie, recording sums well in excess of £300,000 for each of the years 1818, 1819, and 1820. Ferguson recorded a copy in the National Library.

        A Narrative of Travels in Northern Africa, in the Years 1818, 19, and 20; Accompanied by Geographical Notices of Soudan, and of the Course of the Niger with a Chart of the Routes and a Variety of Coloured Plates Illustrative of the Costumes of the Several Natives of Northern Africa

      Albemarle Street, London: John Murray, 1821. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Good. George Francis Lyon (1795 - 1832) was an Arctic and African explorer. In 1818, he was sent with Joseph Ritchie by Sir John Barrow to find the course of the Niger River and the location of Timbuktu. A year later they had only got as far as Murzouk where they both fell ill. Ritchie never recovered and died there, but Lyon survived and traveled further around the region. A year after he left, he arrived back in Tripoli, the expedition being a complete failure. This book recounts details of that expedition. Upon return, he was promoted and in 1821 - the same year this book was published - given the command of HMS Hecla on his second attempt. Lyon was reputed to have genuine informed interest in the culture and inhabitants of the lands he visited. Wearing Arab/Muslim dress and learning fluent Arabic he managed to blend in with the inhabitants of North Africa. In the Arctic, he was tattooed by the Inuit and ate raw caribou and seal meat with them. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1827. This volume features the original half leather binding over marbled boards with leather corners, marbled page edges, and marbled endpapers. The contents are superior - clean and bright with only light intermittent spotting. The large folding map and all 17 hand-colored plates are present. The only previous ownership marking are some collector notes in pencil on the ffep and a stamp stating "Withdrawn" from "The James Humphreys Collection" on the title page verso. The original binding is preserved, but considerably worn at the edges. The hinges are split and bear a crude leather overlay reinforcement at the top and bottom of the spine, which keeps the boards attached to the binding.

        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.

        Ath. Kanakaris is taking possession of the town of Patras."

      Philhellenic: Munich H. Kohler c1835. Tinted lithograph, with modern colour, of Athanasios Kanakaris taking Patras, from Peter von Hess's Album of Greek Heroism, or the Deliverance of Greece / Griechenlands Befreiung ... in XXXIX Bildern.[ First edition.] within decorative borders incorporating captions in Greek, German, French & English. The borders are decorated with guns, swords and helmets with the Greek flag to the left; on the right a crucifix and other emblems of the Christian church; at the top Turkish weapons, laid down, with a fez, and below, sails and naval instruments. The Greek revolution was declared in Patras on March 25 1821, however the Turks retreated to the citadel and would remain there until the city was liberated on 7 October 1828 by the French expeditionary force in the Peloponnese, under the command of General Maison. It is possible that Hess is trying to re write history by suggesting that the birthplace of the revolution was liberated by a Greek force; it certainly seems that politics were heavily involved in the image. Image bright and clean; light spotting to blank borders. Peter( Heinrich Lambert} von Hess 1792-1871, was a German painter, known for historic paintings, especially of the Napoleonic Wars and the Greek War of Independence. In 1833, at Ludwig's request, he accompanied Otto of Greece to the newly formed Kingdom of Greece, where at Athens he gathered materials for pictures of the war of liberation. He stayed nine months in Greece, interviewing heroes and eyewitnesses of the 1821 revolution. His first- hand knowledge of the heroes gives power to his work. He drew 39 historical persons The sketches which he then made were placed, forty in number, in the Pinakothek, after being copied in wax on a large scale by Nilsen, in the northern arcades of the Hofgarten at Munich, [sadly now destroyed]. It should be noted that Hess was not present during the Revolution; the paintings are representations of reported events. many are of Greek victories, or of heroic deaths of the Greek leaders. Not in Blackmer ,Droulia or Contominas. Philhellenic Patras Athanasios Kanakaris

        General and Particular Descriptions of the Vertebrated Animals Arranged Conformably to the Modern Discoveries and Improvements in Zoology

      Paternoster Row; Bond Street; Strand: Printed for Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy; Rodwell and Martin; and W. Wood, 1821. Hardcover. Very good. Edward Griffith (1790-1858) was a British zoologist and lawyer, and was an original member of the Zoological Society of London. This work was intended to be the first in a large series, but the remainder of the work was never completed. Here is a spectacular, contemporary half-leather binding with raised and tooled spine bands, tooled spine label, leather corners, marbled paper boards, matching marbled endpapers, and matching marbled text block edges. A striking and beaufiful example of the binders' craft. The binding is worn but intact. Do note that there is a full gutter break at the front endpapers, but the front cover remains fully and firmly attached to the spine and thus repair will be an easy matter of professionally reattaching the spine to the text block. The contents are spectacular, including the profuse color and black and white drawings. A previous owner's name, dated "1848", appears on the ffep, and the same owner's name is inked discretely at the top of the illustrated half-title.
