        [Color Plate] Chrysal : or the adventures of a guinea : by an adept : a new edition, to which is now prefixed a sketch of the author's life : embellished with plates

      London: Printed for Hector M'Lean, 113, Strand, by Howlett and Brimmer, Frith Street, Soho Square, 1821. First and finest (according to Tooley) Illustrated Edition of this popular eighteenth-century roman à clef, complete in three octavo volumes, with 15 exquisitely hand-colored engravings by Burney, Read, and others. iii-viii,319,[1]; [2],321,[1]; [2]326pp. Elaborately gilt-tooled full navy blue straight-grained morocco by Riviere (signed in gilt to front turn-ins); covers decorated in gilt and blinds with rules and rolls; spines very richly gilt in six compartments, two of which lettered and numbered in gilt. A very handsome, wide-margined set (perhaps one of the few large-paper copies), bindings finely preserved, virtually without wear; text barely toned, light offsetting from plates, very occasional scattered spots, else virtually pristine; early owner's small, tidy initials to title-pages ("J.D.H. 1857"). Bound without half-titles. Tooley 283. Halkett and Laing, p. 348 (for first edition of 1760). "The 'best scandalous chronical of the day,' the supposedly fictitious characters being taken from prominent men of the time... one of the criticised being General Wolfe." (Tooley) Originally published pseudonymously, in 1760, in two volumes. Johnston's chief work (spelled variously Johnston, Johnson and Johnstone). "An excoriating satire that won Johnstone respect as a wit but few friends, the novel is set roughly during the period of the Seven Years' War (1757-63) and pretends to reveal political secrets, and to expose the private profligacy of many of the well-known--and highly colourful--public characters of the time."

      London, John Murray, 1821 [second edition]/ [1820].

Recent antique-style gilt-decorated full calf (by Newbold and Collins); short tear to the map near the stub expertly repaired; inoffensive tiny light stain to the bottom corner and leading margin of the frontispiece and the first four leaves (and by tiny we mean just that); very occasional scattered light foxing; a very good copy.

        Precaution : A Novel

      Henry Colburn and Co. Public Library, Conduit Street, Hanover Square, London 1821 - First Printing of the author's rare first novel (very rare, as here, in the British edition), complete in three volumes. 12mo: [2],307,[1]; [2],301,[1]; [2],315,[1]pp, vol. III, pp. 139 and 272 misnumbered 189 and 172). Contemporary half leather, marbled paper-covered boards, spines decorated in blind with gilt bands and lettering, blue marbled end papers, bookbinder's ticket on front paste down of vol. I (Hays, Book-Binder, 7. Richmond-street, Derry). An excellent set, with tight bindings (barely scuffed) and generally clean, bright pages. BAL 3825 (oddly, making only passing reference to this edition, although the Standard Novels edition [London, 1839] is given an entry of its own [BAL 3889]). Spiller& Blackburn, p. 18-19. Revision of first New York edition, "made apparently by the proof-reader and not by the author." (Spiller& Blackburn) Cooper wrote Precaution on a dare. Warren Walker (James Fenimore Cooper: An Introduction and Interpretation) records it this way: "In the customary practice of the day he was reading aloud to his wife one evening from a current English novel, but found the story dull. Throwing it aside, he declared, 'I could write a better book than that myself.'" To make good his boast, Cooper wrote Precaution, in imitation of contemporary English domestic novels, such as those of Jane Austen and Amelia Opie. In fact, when the novel appeared anonymously in New York (and later, London), it was credited to an English woman. The publisher, A. T. Goodrich, later surprised the public when it revealed that Precaution was authored by a gentleman from New York. N. B.

        A History of Madeira, with a series of twenty-seven coloured engravings, illustrative of the costumes, manners, and occupations of the inhabitants of that island.

      Ackermann London 1821 - First edition. Small folio (28 x 20 cm. approx.), handcoloured aquatint vignette to title, 27 hand-coloured aquatint plates after Rowlandson, modern red morocco gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut, a handsome copy. An attractive work looking at all sections of society in Madeira and showing their occupations and costumes. Includes information on the wine trade. William Combe (25 March 1742 – 19 June 1823) provided many texts for Ackermann's colour plate books. "Vinte e seis das gravuras são deliciosas charges, e a última, já sem feição caricatural, representa a fortaleza do Ilhéu, o celebrado Loo Fort dos ingleses. O frontispício da obra tem uma vinheta que mostra uma vista do Funchal. O Sr. Alberto de Sousa, na sua já citada obra «Historia do Trajo Popular em Portugal» inclui vinte destas estampas, assim como duas da colecção Macphail, vilão e viloa, aquele muito no estilo de William Combe." (Cabral do Nascimento, Estampas Antigas da Madeira, 65). A lovely example, uncut in a full red morocco binding. Abbey Travel 189; Colas 1455; Lipperheide 1581; Tooley (1954) 150.

      London / Edinburgh / Glasgow: Matthew Iley, Somerset Street / Bell and Bradfute; W. Blackwood / W. Turnbull, 1821. First Edition. Tall 8vo: [4],251,[1]pp, with 20 leaves of hand-colored aquatints by William Read and C. Williams (after, but not by, Rowlandson, as often asserted). Text in verse. Contemporary red straight-grained morocco, covers bordered in blind and in gilt, richly gilt spine in six compartments, gilt turn-ins, red morocco lettering piece gilt, all edges gilt, period plain brown end papers. An excellent example of a handsome production, with marginal stains on paste downs from binder's glue and light offsetting from plates onto opposing pages, otherwise clean, bright, and unmarked. Tooley 433. Abbey, Life, 277. Prideaux, p. 334. Hardie, pp 168, 317. One of a "host of parodies and spurious imitations" (Hardie) of William Combe's series of Doctor Syntax books, and sometimes attributed to him (as well as to Rowlandson). Some of the incidents depicted are similar to those described in Boswell's Journal of a Tour to the Hebrides, with Samuel Johnson, and it may have been inspired by that book. N. B.

        Mes Voyages aux Environs de Paris…

      One engraved map of Paris and its outskirts, four engraved plates & 24 folding facsimiles of documents. vi, 322 pp.; 2 p.l., 335 pp. Two vols. 8vo, fine cont. sprinkled sheep (foot of spine of Vol. I with minor defect), gilt borders on covers, flat spines gilt, green morocco lettering pieces on spines, marbled edges. Paris: Picard-Dubois, 1821. First edition and a fine copy of this guide to the outskirts of Paris. Delort (1789-1847), historian, worked in the French Ministry of the Interior. In the preface, Delort explains that he was engaged to explore these areas and record notable places and the stories of celebrated individuals who lived there. Divided into a number of "Voyages," which are then separated by related facsimiles of correspondence and their transcriptions, the book is written in a mix of prose and verse. He describes the lives of important historical figures such as Fouquet, Henri IV, Marie Antoinette, and Voltaire. Particularly interesting are the vivid descriptions of neighborhoods which were suburbs in the 19th century but have since been subsumed by the metropolis. There are lengthy accounts of numerous chateaux, churches and cathedrals, villages, aqueducts, and cemeteries, as well as etymologies and historical information about the outskirts. The map of Paris and its suburbs is exceptionally detailed. The four plates depict various landmarks which Delort encounters on his trips. A fine copy. ❧ N.B.G., Vol. 13, cols. 499-500.

The maps are "North and South West Africa, Showing the Course of the Niger and Principal Rivers" and "Route of the Mission to Ashantee in 1820." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        La Botanique.

      Paris Badouin Frères 1821 - Folio (37.5 x 28 cm.), xi, 159, [1]pp., 65 stipple-engraved plates by Bouquet, Chailly, and other after P. J. Redouté printed in colours and finished by hand, original tissue guards, a little light foxing but plates generally clean, contemporary red half morocco gilt by Duplanil signed at foot of spine, lightly rubbed, a very good copy. Lovely example, in a signed binding, of Redouté's beautifully illustrated publication of letters on botany by the great philosopher Jean Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778), written in the years 1771 to 1773 and apparently first published in 1782. They first appeared with Redouté's illustrations in 1805, in both a folio and a quarto issue, the latter reissued in 1821 from the original plates. This scarce second edition was printed by Alexandre Baudouin and his brother on heavy wove paper. The book serves largely as a vehicle to display the botanical art of Pierre Joseph Redouté (1759-1840) who executed all the paintings or watercolour drawings. They were stipple-engraved and (except for that used as a title-vignette), printed in colour à la poupée and finished by hand. The plates show flowers, fruits, bulbs, leaves, etc. of flowering plants and trees, some showing whole plants and others showing details, sometimes cut away to reveal anatomical details.

        Faustus: From the German of Goethe.

      Boosey and Rodwell & Martin, London., 1821. First edition. pp.viii, 86, 1 List of Plates. 28 plates, engraved by [Henry] Moses, from the original copper etchings which [Moritz] Ret[z]sch made for the German edition. Quarto. Original cloth-backed pictorial paper boards. Coleridge insisted that he "had never put pen to paper as a translator of Faust" which does not quite accord with what Goethe wrote in a letter to his son, in 1820, saying that Coleridge was already well under way with the translation. There are various theories as to why Coleridge did not wish his name put to the translation the most plausible of which, according to Frederick Burwick and James C. McKusick, editors of the 2007 Oxford University Press edition of Faustus, was that when he first undertook to do the translation, in 1814, he did not wish to be associated with Goethe's unorthodox religious views, which is ironic given that he seemed to be making Faustian pacts of his own, not least in his increasing use of opium. A more prosaic reason is that he had already received an advance of £100 for the translation from John Murray, a figure which he considered "humiliatingly low". Only about a quarter of the play was translated into verse, in a style recognisably Coleridge's, and the rest was summarised in prose passages. The fragile paper boards are rubbed at the edges and there is some sporadic spotting throughout, otherwise a very good copy.

        An Inquiry into the Nature and Treatment of Gravel, Calculus, and other Diseases with a Deeranged Operation of the Urinary Organs.

      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.149Prout 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. Lederman, Leon (1993). The God Particle

"The book came out in twelve monthly parts the final price being £3 13s 6d and £6 6s [large paper]" (Hardie). Ackermann's intention was to combine the "most striking features of the various kinds of scenery of the lakes, executed by able artists in a style worthy of the subject" with "a description of all that is interesting and remarkable in the nature and appearance of the country combining a judicious selection from the labours of former writers with much new and original information" (publisher's introduction). Of the plates 35 are after Fielding, 12 after James Walton, his brother-in-law, and one after Westall. Fielding was "teacher of drawing and perspective at the East India Company's military college at Addiscombe" (ODNB) An appealing copy of an increasingly hard-to-find book.
