L'ouvrage comprend 2 tableaux repliés, 7 cartes gravées sur cuivre dont 6 dépliantes, ainsi 20 que planches dont 19 coloriées à la main, gravées à l'aquatinte d'après les dessins de Louis Choris et Johann Friedrich von Eschscholtz entre autres, soit : 4 portraits d'indigènes, 4 vues à double pages, dont une scène d'intérieur, et 11 planches de papillons. Texte en lettres gothiques (Fraktur). Édition originale du Voyage dans l'océan du sud et au détroit de Béring, première expédition scientifique du navigateur russe Otto von Kotzebue dans les mers du Sud. Elle fut financée par le comte Romanzoff (Nikolaï Roumiantsev) ; à bord du Rurik, Kotzebue (1787 - 1846), accompagné de savants parmi lesquels le poète et naturaliste Adelbert von Chamisso, navigua de Kronstadt vers Copenhague puis Plymouth, Teneriffe et de là vers le Brésil, le Chili, puis Kamchatka. De là, il découvre le golfe qui porte son nom, passe le Détroit de Béring à l'été 1816, explore la côte nord de l'Amérique et navigue vers les Îles Sandwich et vers les îles de la Micronésie. L'expédition de Kotzebue contribua de manière essentielle à la connaissance de l'Alaska, de la Californie d'Hawai et de la Micronésie. En Polynésie, il revendiqua la découverte de trois îles, Tikei, Takapoto et Tikehau. Pendant la première moitié du XIXe siècle, de nombreux grands voiliers effectuèrent le trajet entre Saint - Pétersbourg et les territoires du Nord - Est ; on a appelé cette période « l'ère des circumnavigations russes », inaugurée en 1803 - 1806 par l'amiral Krusenstern (1770 - 1845). C'est d'après les instructions de ce dernier que Kotzebue réalisa ses deux grands voyages (le second en 1823 - 1826), dont le but était d'établir un Atlas de la mer du Sud qui se substituerait aux cartes plus anciennes, notamment à celles d'Arrowsmith, devenues obsolètes. Les deux premiers volumes de cette publication décrivent l'itinéraire du Rurik : ils contiennent, à la fin, une analyse de l'amiral Krusenstern lui - même, des remarques sur les maladies qui ont touché l'équipage durant les trois ans de la traversée par Eschscholtz, embarqué comme médecin de bord. Le volume III, contient les remarques d'Adelbert von Chamisso (1781 - 1838) sur l'histoire naturelle et le langage, avec un vocabulaire comparatif. La même année, le poète, Français d'origine émigré en Prusse après la Révolution, publia à son tour son journal de voyage ; Reise um die Welt : Tagebuch. Rousseurs pâles au texte et aux planches, légère auréole angulaire sur quelques cahiers. Sabin 38284. Brunet III, 693

        A Chart of the World, on Mercator's Projection: With the tracks of the more distinguished modern navigators. Regulated throughout according to the best scientific determinations..

      London: Laurie & Whittle, 1821. A little browning yet a beautifully preserved example.. Four sheets forming a world map measuring 1280 x 1900 mm. (total combined area), contemporary handcolouring. Framed. Impressive world map printed on a grand scale and marked with the routes of voyagers from the sixteenth century to the close of the eighteenth. The three voyages of James Cook and his immediate predecessors (Wallis, Byron and Carteret) are merited special attention, and the signature of Cook is reproduced in facsimile in the lower left hand corner of the chart. First published in 1810, this map is marked "Third edition Improved". The map was printed on four separate sheets that can be combined to form an enormous display almost two meters in length. It was prepared by hydrographer John Purdy and published by Richard Holmes Laurie: the latter was the son of the great London mapmaker Robert Laurie who had retired in 1812, and who continued his father's partnership with James Whittle, strengthening the reputation of the renowned cartographic imprint of 'Laurie & Whittle'.The map is fascinating for its wealth of engraved detail concerning maritime exploration, with the tracks of great voyagers from sixteenth-century Spanish pioneers to relatively recent figures such as Bligh and Flinders. It is probable that Purdy used Dalrymple's Account of the Discoveries made in the South Pacifick Ocean (1767) and Burney's Chronological History of the Discoveries in the South Sea (1803) as a guide. Each island has the date of first sighting or landfall recorded, including some dubious entries from the dawn of Pacific navigation. One such example in the southern reach of the Carolines is marked "Los Jesus 1567 (very doubtful)", apparently a reference to the Spanish pilot Lope Martin.The number and range of voyages recorded on the chart is impressive; names include Dampier, Wallis, Carteret, Vancouver, Tasman, Bligh, Mendaña, Kruzenshtern amongst many others. Cook's three voyages are notated with occasional engraved comments gleaned from the published accounts, such as "Aurora Australis appeared" or "Petrels and Penguins seen". The routes of prominent French voyagers, including Marion du Fresne and Kerguelen, are included although the great expeditions of the early nineteenth-century, namely those led by Baudin and Freycinet, are not recorded. However, the intention of Richard Laurie was broader than charting routes of famous mariners. Comparatively obscure mercantile ventures are included, including those of Captains Bond and Butler to New South Wales in 1790s, both of which arose from the lucrative trade from England to the convict settlement and then onwards to China.Longer engraved detail in the blank corners of the map include a reproduction of James Cook's autograph, a summary of the rights of British whalers in the South Seas, good discussion of the cartographic challenges of rendering the globe along Mercator's projection and instructions for ascertaining bearings using the longitude.k

        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

      John Murray, Albemarle Street, London 1821 - 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. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      A composer, conductor, pianist, and critic, "[Weber's] contributions to song, choral music, and piano music were highly esteemed by his contemporaries, his opera overtures influenced the development of the concert overture and symphonic poem, and his explorations of novel timbres and orchestrations enriched the palette of musical sonorities. With the overwhelming success of his opera Der Freischütz in 1821 he became the leading exponent of German opera in the 1820s and an international celebrity. A seminal figure of the 19th century, he influenced composers as diverse as Marschner, Mendelssohn, Wagner, Meyerbeer, Berlioz, and Liszt." Paul Corneilson et al in Grove Music Online. Woernle, born in Stuttgart, worked and died in Vienna.. 480 x 326 mm. + wide margins. Signed in pencil by the artist ("W. Woernle") at lower right. With the remarque of a lyre and sword.

        Collection of Tracts and Speeches pertaining to Queen Caroline]

      London 1821 - 1 vols. 8vo. The Countess of Jersey's Copies. Collection of pamphlets from the "Queen Caroline Affair" (1820), with the ownership signatures of the Countess of Jersey, Sarah Sophia Child Villiers (1785-1867). She was a banking heiress with a colossal income; her husband, fifth Earl of Jersey, famed as a foxhunter and sportsman, was the son of Frances Villiers, a notorious coquette and royal mistress of George IV when Prince of Wales. Sarah Jersey was "one of the most prominent hostesses and social figures of her generation ? her houses became centres for the whig party. ? Her love of being at the centre of attention, perhaps, as much as conviction led her to take up the unfashionable cause of Queen Caroline when George IV was seeking to divorce her: she championed the queen with such frenzied fervour that her friends began to doubt her reason" (ODNB). The first three titles are exceedingly scarce; the fourth title is more widely held in institutions.Includes: 1.

      1821. Torture, Bribery And Licentious Conduct at Ilchester Gaol Hunt, Henry [1773-1835]. Investigation At Ilchester Gaol, In The County Of Somerset, Into The Conduct Of William Bridle, The Gaoler, Before The Commissioners Appointed By The Crown. The Evidence Given By H.B. Shillibear. Dedicated, With An Address To His Majesty, King George The Fourth. London: Thomas Dolby, 1821. viii, 7, [1], 271, [5], 8 pp. Main text in parallel columns. Etched portrait frontispiece of Bridle, by George Cruikshank, holding the tools of his trade (leg irons, manacles and a hangman's noose), five etched plates, probably by Robert Cruikshank, woodcut text illustration on p. 261. Complete, including the two supplementary addresses found in some copies. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5"). Contemporary three-quarter calf over marbled boards. Moderate rubbing with some wear to spine ends, joints and corners, crack in text block between title page and following leaf. Moderate toning, light foxing in a few places. Later inscription in pencil to front pastedown, interior otherwise clean. * First edition in book form. This was originally issued in six parts, "price one shilling" each, in blue paper printed wrappers. Henry Hunt, the radical politician, had presided over the Smithfield reform meeting on 21 July 1819, and at the meeting in St. Peter's Fields, Manchester, on 16 August, which was broken up by the yeomanry, and became known as the Peterloo Massacre. Hunt was tried at the York Assizes, in March 1 820, for his part in the protest, and was convicted. He spent his two-year term at Ilchester Gaol. The report of the Commission of Inquiry into Ilchester Gaol, instigated because of Hunt's complaints, provides a vivid portrait of the corruption, health hazards and horrifying regimes in place in local prisons in the early years of the nineteenth century. Hunt leveled 21 charges against Bridle, the gaoler. These included gross neglect of duty, drunkenness, gambling, cruelty, torture, bribery, embezzlement, false accounting, "licentious conduct towards female convicts (Bridle was suspected of fathering children with two of them), not feeding inmates properly, and for "making boys sleep with a man convicted of beastiality". It was Hunt himself who examined the witnesses and principals involved. The plates by Robert Cruikshank are mock portraits of: "The Revd. T.G.D.

        Travels in Georgia, Persia, Armenia, Ancient Babylonia.

      Spottiswoode for Longman Hurst and others London -22 1821 - Two volumes 4to (27.4 x 21.2 cm.), half-title in vol. 2 (not called for in vol. 1), illustrated with 2 portrait frontispieces by W.T. Fry after Porter and 90 plates and maps (some folding) including 2 folding maps unnumbered (but one considered as pl. 83), two unnumbered plates (87 numbered) and 5 hand-coloured, executed in different media, i.e. aquatint, line-engravings, stipple-engravings; some foxing as usual, especially on plates, occasional light offsetting. Contemporary catspaw calf, spines with raised bands; restored and rebacked retaining original red and green gilt-lettered labels, endpapers renewed. First edition of one of the most substantial illustrated books on Persia. Porter (1777-1842) had been a court painter in St. Petersburg, and archaeological investigation and drawing were the principal reasons for the author's travels. One of Porter's aims was to correct errors in the drawings of earlier travellers such as Chardin and Le Bruyn. His work contains therefore many archaeological plates, as well as some views and (coloured) costumes. From Russia, Porter travelled to Tabriz where he met Abbas Mirza with whom he spent a considerable time. He went on to Tehran with Abbas Mirza before going to Esfahan, Persepolis, and Shiraz. In Tehran he had an audience with Fath Ali Shah, with whom he was very impressed. "An intelligent and readable book" (Ghani).

        A Flora of North America, Volume I

      Philadelphia:: M. Carey & Sons,. 1821.. Hardcover. 4to, xix, directions to binder (i), ads (iv), 138pp, 36 color plates. Extremely clean copy of volume one (of three) of an important American flora, a work which includes the first successful use of stipple engraving in the United States. 16 plates are by Cornelius Tiebout, "the first really skilled engraver born in the United States, although he trained in London for two years in the 1790s to perfect his technique" - Reese. The book is described as "magnificently illustrated" (DAB) with "plates [that] are clear, soft and lovely' (Bennett). Original half red calf with marbled boards. Spine lacking, front cover loose, but holding. Internally, very good. An important American flora, "magnificently illustrated" (DAB) with "plates [that] are clear, soft and lovely" (Bennett). The work includes the first successful use of stipple engraving in the United States. This set includes the rare "To Subscribers" leaf in the second volume. In addition to its significance as a botanical work, Barton's FLORA... is also one of the most important early color plate books produced entirely in the United States. "The plates were made by [amongst others] Cornelius Tiebout, the first really skilled engraver born in the United States, although he trained in London for two years in the 1790s to perfect his technique" - Reese. Barton states in the advertisement to the first volume that some of the "plates are printed in color, and are afterwards colored by hand. It is confidently believed by the author, that they will be found the most successful attempts at imitation by sound engraving, of the French style, yet made in this country." He goes on to note that the method of color printing was the result of "repeated experiments" owing "to the impossibility of obtaining information as to the manner of coloring abroad." The text gives details of each species, its Latin binomial, common name, and class and order according to the Linnean system, followed by interesting information about the history of the discovery of the species and details about its geographical range.

        Fine original small bust-length drawing in black chalk and pen and ink on blue-grey paper, purportedly of the composer

      - Ca. 71 x 60 mm. Signed with monogram "E.B." at lower left and identified on the verso as being of Carl Maria von Weber. Mounted to dark ivory stock; hinged to mount at upper margin of verso. We have been unable to identify the monogrammist "E.B."A prototypical 19th-century musician-critic, he sought through his works, words, and efforts as performer and conductor to promote art and shape emerging middle-class audiences to its appreciation. His contributions to song, choral music, and piano music were highly esteemed by his contemporaries, his opera overtures influenced the development of the concert overture and symphonic poem, and his explorations of novel timbres and orchestrations enriched the palette of musical sonorities. With the overwhelming success of his opera Der Freischütz in 1821 he became the leading exponent of German opera in the 1820s and an international celebrity. A seminal figure of the 19th century, he influenced composers as diverse as Marschner, Mendelssohn, Wagner, Meyerbeer, Berlioz, and Liszt." Paul Corneilson et al in Grove Music Online.
