In 1768 when captain James Cook set sail on the first of three voyages to the South Seas, he carried with him secret orders from British Admiralty to seek 'a Continent or land of great extent' and to take possession of that country in the name of the King of Great Britain. The first voyage aboard the Endeavour had two aims first to establish an observatory at Tahiti to record the transit of Venus and secondly for Joseph Banks to record the natural history, on this voyage Cook reached the southern coast of New South Wales and charted Australia's eastern coastline. His second voyage aboard the ships Resolution and Adventure crossed the Antarctic circle on three occasions, proving that the southern landmass was neither as large or as habitable as once thought. The third voyage aboard Resolution and Discovery was an attempt to locate a North-West passage, an ice-free sea route which linked … [Click Below for Full Description]

Alabama.) Lalouette, Antoine Prudence (1777-1855)
Various places, mostly Alabama, 1821-23. Dozens of items comprising scores of pages. Very good condition, the letters neatly penned and legible. A detailed inventory follows.This tremendous manuscript collection documents in great detail a pioneering French settler's ambitious struggles to establish a home in the new state of Alabama in the early 1820s.In 1821, Antoine Prudence Lalouette, formerly a lieutenant of infantry under Napoleon Bonaparte, left Burgundy to establish a new home in America. He sailed from Le Havre and arrived in New Orleans in June 1821. Lalouette immediately set out for Mobile, where he acquired a prime 1240-acre parcel of land near Mobile Bay on Riviere aux Poissons (present-day Fish River).Over the course of the next two years Lalouette worked to clear the land, equip himself, build a home and slave quarters, and cultivate the land, while surviving in a harsh, wild environment. Lalouette's extremely long letters to his wife, closely but legibly written, begin with accounts of his eventful travels including his ship's arrival in the Gulf of Mexico pursued by a corsair, his stay in New Orleans, where streets were just beginning to be paved, and his journey to Mobile in search of property. He finally bought the 1240-acre parcel at the junction of the Fish River near Mobile Bay.In these densely written letters, the extremely observant French settler analyzes the state of agriculture in the deep South and the prospects for making his fortune there. He describes Mobile, its population, and its markets. Lalouette visits a neighbor who has already made a f … [Click Below for Full Description]

Biot, Arago, Ampee: pp. 80-102, 225-258 a. 258-273. ¶ First printing of these milestone papers in which Fresnel finally established the transversal nature of lightwaves. The volume also having the notable rapports and notes by Arago, Biot, Ampere exhibiting the famous controversy over the subject."This concept of transverse waves met with the greatest hostility from the scientists of the day, who could not imagine an extremely fluid and rarified ether which at the same time possessed the mechanical properties of a rigid body. Even Arago admitted that he could not follow the exuberant engineer in his ideas. But Fresnel was convinced that at last he had the key to many mysteries, and with his model of waves he gave a full clarification of the phenomena of polarization. With insuperable precision he explained a long series of extremely complicated experiments, such as those of chromatic polarization that Arago himself had discovered by chance in 1811, and which the followers of Newton could not explain in spite of all their efforts. Following this line Fresnel reached the synthesis which is his masterpiece....we must recall the final interpretation that he gave of the famous phenomenon of partial reflection by transparent surfaces, that simple … [Click Below for Full Description]

An important book and early American color plate production. The book utilizes an American made paper of a particular kind that naturally darkens over the years. This is specific to the paper stock and is notable in a number of books printed in Philadelphia in these years. G - M # 3362 citing the English editon of 1806.

CRAVEN, Richard Keppel.
London, for Rodwell And Martin, 1821. 4to. Contemporary calf, rebacked; pp. xi, 449, 14 engraved plates (including one map, one plate bound as frontispiece and foxed due to offsetting from endpapers), other plates only lightly and mainly marginally spotted, a good copy from the Charles Benson collection, contemporary gilt-stamped armorial bookplate on vellum, Lansdowne, inside front cover. First edition. A highly attractive copy of Craven's tour of southern Italy in 1818. The illustrations are after original drawings and watercolours by the author. The appendix was added by the editor, who having been entrusted with the author's notes and journal, deemed it appropriate to add Craven's account of the revolution in Calabria in 1820. It had never been Craven's intention to include the account, but the editor thought it necessary to provide the public with the only published account of the revolution.

CLARE, John.
London: Printed for Taylor and Hessey & E. Drury, 1821. London: Printed for Taylor and Hessey & E. Drury,, 1821. 2 volumes, duodecimo (165 x 97 mm). Later 19th-century green half morocco by Birdsall and Son of Northampton, red and orange morocco labels to spines, gilt flower motifs to compartments, marbled sides, endpapers and edges. Portrait frontispiece to vol. I. Contemporary ownership signature and partially erased pencilled notes to half-title of vol. I. Bound with half-titles but without the terminal advertisements. Light wear to extremities, slight rubbing, chip to spine of vol. I, front free endpaper professionally reattached, some light foxing to contents. Very good condition overall. First edition of Clare's second book of poetry. A farm labourer's son, John Clare (1793-1864) had published his first work, Poems Descriptive of Rural Life and Scenery, the previous year. It became something of a publishing sensation, with the 1,000 copies of the first edition selling out in two months. Clare was celebrated as being tantamount to an English Robert Burns, and his poetic talents, seemingly springing from nowhere, caught the attention of a reading public fascinated by the idea of "inspiration" and its sources in Nature. The present work met with further success, with public interest in the poet indulged with a biographical sketch of the author, and a largely autobiographical titular poem. With the bookplates of Albert Louis Cotton, author of the 1904 novel The Company of Death, and an associate of Julie Margaret Cameron.

The plate slightly brownspotted. ¶ First appearance of these three papers in which Faraday records one of the most influential discoveries in physics in the 19th Century; - with these papers he is the very first to show how to CONVERT THE ELECTRICAL AND MAGNETIC FORCES INTO CONTINUAL MECHANICAL MOVEMENT, thus creating the first electric motor, using the principle of electromagnetic rotation. In the first paper he introduced for the first time the concept of "LINE OF FORCE", hereby delineating "a picture of the universe as consisting of fields of various types, one that was more subtle, flexible, and useful than the purely mechanical picture of Galileo and Newton. The FIELD UNIVERSE was to be recognized with Maxwell half a century later and with Einstein, after an interval of another half century" (Asimov)."Ever since Hans Christian Oersted's announcement of the discovery of electromagnetism in the summer of 1820, editors of scientific journals had been inundated with articles on the phenomenon.

Previous owner's name to title-page (dated 1909) and a few light pencil-marginalia, otherwise internally very nice and clean with only occasional minor brownspotting. XXVI, 355, (1) pp. A very fine copy. ¶ The scarce first edition of Hegel's seminal "The Outline (or later Elements) of the Philosophy of Right", the last of Hegel's major works, which represents the culmination of a life-long interest in politics and political phenomena. Hegel was perhaps more than any other German philosopher influenced by the French Revolution, and this masterpiece of philosophy constitutes a grandiose attempt to make freedom the foundation of human society. "Taken apart from the rest of his system, Hegel's political philosophy has been much misrepresented by totalitarian propagandists. He was, however, one of the most profound and influential thinkers of the nineteenth century. Theology, philosophy, political theory, all have been radically influenced by his system; Strauss (300), Baur (322), Bradley, Kierkegaard (314), Marx (326, 359), Lenin (392), all came under his spell, and his indirect influence has been limitless."

Three years later he was renting land for his own nursery garden in the Faubourg Saint-Jacques. Once his garden was established he travelled to Hungary with Prince Esterhazy, furnishing the Prince's new plantations there. As Noisette's reputation and his nursery's stock both grew he started a larger garden for trees and fruit at Fontenay-les-Roses, before moving to Montrouge in 1836. The Noisette nursery is credited with the introduction to France of many new North American plants, a specialty that myst have been helped by Louis's brother Philippem who was for some years a nurseryman … [Click Below for Full Description]

Conrad Loddiges & Sons
John & Arthur Arch, John Hatchard, Loddi ges and Cooke, 1817 - 1821. 83/4 x 6 3/4", 22cm x 16.7cm, six volumes. These are the first six volumes of the 20-volume Botanical Cabinet, which continued to be issued yearly until 1833 by Loddiges, which was a leading plant nursery of England. The nursery had its gardens and hothouses at Hackney, at that time north of the city, and now a northern London borough. At the time that The Botanical Cabinet was being issued, the nursery was at the height of its quite amazing powers, receiving plants from around the world -- including the United States -- and operating immense hothouses for the cultivation of tropical plants. This set of six contains 599 of 600 hand-colored illustrations, one (a picture of a heath) presumably mislaid by the first printer or binder, not swiped by the stickly-fingered. The entries are meticulous in giving a plant's history and home territory. They have on occasion been criticized for spilling over into religious praise, but this affects only a minority of the texts explaining the plants, is not inttrusive, and is most vividly part of the period. The plant descriptions are interesting, brief, and couched in an editorial "we" that surely derives from assorted members of the Loddiges family walking around their nurseries conferring on notes. Volume 1 is somewhat more toned and browned than the following volumes, but all are remarkably clean, with no tears or reader's notes. Each volume is followed by a bound-in index for that volume, and volume 3 contains two addittional black and white plates showing the ground … [Click Below for Full Description]
