        [In Greek: Phytobasanos] sive plantarum aliquot historia in qua describuntur diversi generis plantae veriores, ac magis facie, viribúsque respondentes antiquorum Theophrasti, Dioscoridis Plinii, Galeni, aliorúmque delineationibus, ab aliis hucusque non animadversae. ... etiam piscium aliquot, plantarúmque novarum historia eodem auctore.Naples, Horatio Salviani, Jacobus Carlino and Antonius Pace, 1592. 4to. With Salviani's woodcut device on title-page, 37 full-page etched botanical and ichthyological illustrations on integral leaves (8 x 13 cm), 33 of plants & 4 of fish and other marine species, each in a border built up from cast fleurons and rules, dozens of woodcut decorated initials (4 series) and further decorations built up from cast fleurons. Set in roman types with the preliminaries in italic and several passages in Greek. Gold-tooled brown calf (ca. 1700?), sprinkled edges.

      Adams C2394; Blunt, pp. 87-89; BMC STC Italian, p. 191; Hunt 165 (37 plates); Mortimer (Italian) 130; Nissen, BBI 386 (38 plates); Pritzel 1822 (36 plates). First edition of a charming botanical book with beautiful etched illustrations of plants and a few marine animals, written and illustrated by Fabio Colonna, famed Italian scientist (1567-1650). ''It is the first strictly botanical book with intaglio prints'' (Blunt). As a child Colonna suffered from epileptic seizures and started to study Greek and Latin authors, determined to find in one of their works a remedy for his illness. Through his studies he became a botanist and wrote several works on this subject. The "Phytobasanos" (plant touchstone) set out to improve the knowledge of the plants listed by Dioscorides and other classical authors. Colonna identified the herb valerian as the remedy Dioscorides recommended for epilepsy. He drew the illustrations for his works and is believed to have etched plates as well. His works are among the first botanical books to contain etched illustrations. Although they are relatively small and unpretentious ''they are botanically accurate with the separate details of flowers and fruit frequently shown'' (Blunt). The layout and decorative elements are charming, using excellent French types, and the presswork is good.Bookplate on back of title-page with Bose coat of arms of the library of the botanical gardens at Leipzig ("Biblioth.Bosian.Hortens."), which were laid out by Prof. Georg Bose ca. 1700. With a few early manuscript notes and occasional underlining. With an owner's inscription cut out of the title-page and the gap restored at an early date, just touching the woodcut device, otherwise in good condition, with only very minor browning and an occasional small spot or stain. Binding badly rubbed, with the spine label and some of the gold lost, but structurally sound. The endpapers are browned and the head of one endleaf restored. A lovely landmark of botanical book illustration.

        Künstlerfreund am Waldrand, 1822.

      - Schwarze und weiße Kreide, mit Umfassungslinie, auf braunem Bütten mit Wasserzeichen: St Etienne du Mamis. 28:44,5 cm. – Papier am rechten Rand etwas wellig, links leicht knitterfaltig. Vgl. Wechssler WV 105-121. Während der Reise an den Genfer See und ins Wallis im August 1822 entstanden. Diese Annahme wird durch die Tatsache gestützt, daß die Zeichnungen WV 104, 106 und 116 ebenfalls mit Bleistift und weißer Kreide, bzw. mit schwarzer und weißer Kreide auf braunes Papier gezeichnet sind. Über diese Reise schreibt Wechssler auf S. 19: „Anfang August unternimmt er eine Studienreise an den Genfer See und ins Wallis. Die Route führt über Lausanne, Vevey, Rhônetal, Rhônegletscher, Grimselpass hinunter nach Meiringen und schließlich nach Füssen. Nur wenige Zeichnungen dieser Reise lassen sich heute noch nachweisen; von einem größeren Teil ist der Verbleib unbekannt, war in Familienbesitz und ist bei Gravenkamp aufgeführt. Diese Blätter stammen aus einem großformatigen Skizzenbuch, das aufgelöst wurde".

        Confessions of an English Opium Eater.

      London: Printed for Taylor and Hessey, 1822. Large 12mo, vi, 206 pp. with half title, lacking final leave of ads. Finely bound by Zaehnsdorf in crushed black morocco, covers richly gilt with a repeating flower pattern within gilt rules, backstrip with five raised bands, compartments decorated with gilt title, gilt roles and gilt flowers, gilt turn-ins and red silk doblures, top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed, red leather gilt bookplate, slipcase. A touch of fading and a small scuff to the backstrip, front hinge cracked, otherwise a very good copy in a lovely binding. First edition in book form of De Quincey’s first book, which originally appeared in September and October 1821 in the London Magazine. As the first autobiography of addiction and a classic work of English Romanticism, the book has had enormous importance for both literature and medical history. De Quincey later revised and expanded the work for publication under his name in Boston in 1850 though many critics believe this “final” version lacked much of the force of the original. Tinker 817.

Erste Ausgabe eines der bedeutendsten und ausgeglichensten Werke seiner Zeit. - Kieser (1779-1862), Professor für Medizin und Direktor der psychiatrischen Klinik in Jena, war einer der Hauptvertreter der naturphilosophischen Medizin. ".Kieser was a strong supporter of animal magnetism and heavily involved in investigating the clairvoyant qualities of magnetic somnambulists. He called the essential agent of animal magnetism 'telluric power', associating animal magnetism with a generalized force. In this lengthy and important work, he describes mineral, vegetable, and animal magnetism, attempting to provide a foundation in physics for animal magnetic phenomena. Kieser says that sleep is a general expression of magnetic life and that somnambulism is a natural product of the application of animal magnetic techniques. In describing magnetic healing, he places some emphasis on the power of belief as supplementary to the healing power of animal magnetism itself. The second volume contains a history of animal magnetism and a good bibliography" (Crabtree). - Stellenweise etwas stockfleckig bzw. gebräunt. Einband gering fleckig und bestoßen.

      1822-1829. "Treatise on Naval Affairs," 12 pages, 9.5" x 15.5", front and verso. Published in England c. 1822-1829. The "Treatise" is divided as follows: <I>"Part I./Maritime State of Great Britain./Sect. I./Laws, Discipline, and Privileges,"</I> <I>"Sect. II/Managements of the British Navy, Regulations, Salutes, &C."</I>, <I>"Sect. III/Naval Exercise,"</I> <I>"Sect. IV./Naval Tactics,"</I> <I>"Sect. V/Manner of a Naval Engagement,"</I> <I>"Part II./Naval Architecture./Sect. I./The Art of Delineating Ships on a Plane,"</I> <I>"Sect. II/Construction of Ships."</I> There are portions of this treatise taken word for word from "An Universal Dictionary of the Marine: or, A Copious Explanation of the Technical Terms and Phrases Employed in the Construction, Equipment, Furniture, Machinery, Movements, and Military Operations of a Ship Illustrated with variety of Original Designs of Shipping, in different Situations; Together with separate Views of their Masts, Sails, Yards, and Rigging." It was published in 1769 by William Falconer, author of the classic poem, "The Shipwreck." Falconer was drowned later that year in the sinking of the frigate H.M.S. "Aurora." The "Treatise of Naval Affairs" quotes heavily (without giving credit) from Falconer's "Dictionary" which was reprinted in 1771, 1780 ("A New Edition, Corrected" by Thomas Cadell, London), 1784, 1805, and 1815 (revised). While there were 12 engraved plates in Falconer's "Dictionary," many referred to in the "Treatise," none are illustrated. Included from the 1780 edition of Falconer's "Dictionary" are copies of four plates referred to in the "Treatise on Naval Affairs," and pages 63-76 ("Naval Architecture") and 222-225 ("Ship-Building") from which "Part II Naval Architecture" Sections I and II are taken. Portions of Falconer's "Preface" are used in the concluding paragraphs of the "Treatise." From 1660-1832, the members of the Navy Board were as Principal Officers and Commissioners of the Navy. According to "Principal officers and commissioners, Office-Holders in Modern Britain: Volume 7: Navy Board Officials 1660-1832," "The membership of the Board was reduced to nine in 1822 by the reduction of one Surveyor and one Commissioner…In 1829 the Committee system was abandoned, and the Board was again composed of specialist officers with individual responsibility for the work formerly supervised by the Committees. The number of Principal Officers and Commissioners was reduced from nine to seven." The "Treatise on Naval Affairs" is not dated, but there is mentioned that the "principal officers and commissioners of the navy are four" and the "commissioners of the navy are five," for a total of nine, indicating that the "Treatise" was most probably printed in the period between 1822 and 1829. Light foxing and stains with tears at left edge where it was originally attached to a binding by string. Overall, fine condition.

"In 1822 the first printed edition of Genesis was issued (Fabricius and Wolf), and a number of Old Testament books appeared during the following years." (Elliot, Ideology, Culture and Translation). The Book of Genesis was translated by Otto Fabricius (1744 - 1822), a Danish missionary, naturalist, ethnographer and explorer of Greenland. He was sent to Greenland in 1768, and remained there five years. In that time he amassed a huge store of collections, and took encyclopedic notes of his observations, under conditions that were quite primitive.Otto Fabricius died in 1822 and finished the manuscript to the Book of Genisis on his deathbed. The Moravian missions in Greenland were established by the Moravian United Brotherhood and operated between 1733 and 1900. They were operated under the auspices of the Royal Danish College of Missions until its dissolution in 1859 and were finally surrendered to the Lutheran Church of Denmark in 1900. Missionaries were allocated to the region and sometimes even sent wives who had been chosen for them and approved by the drawing of lots, a form of Cleromancy.Darlow & Moule 3497, 3498 & 3499Lauridsen, Bibliographia Groenlandica, Eskimo literature no. 36

        Manuscript Document on Vellum, Entitled "Taynton Inclosure Award", With Large Colour Map. Land Granted to Wales Politician, George Talbot Rice, 3rd Baron Dynevor.

      Taynton in Oxfordshire, 16 May 1822. , 1822. Manuscript Enclosure Award on vellum, being a type of land grant approved by the Parliament of England, which doled out parcels of land previously termed "common" and collectively controlled and farmed by everyday citizens, to subsequently be privately owned by wealthy British peers and the like, complete with the original accompanying survey map, hand-drawn on vellum, delineating the new acquisitions of British politician, former MP of Carmarthenshire in Wales, George Talbot Rice, 3rd Baron Dynevor, among others. Medium Folio. 25 pages including the commissioner's manuscript oath, written to rectos only, each page of the document bordered in red ink, docketed by a parliamentary court clerk, and labelling it 'Roll 415.' Accompanied the original large manuscript folding map of the Parish of Taynton, tipped in at the front of the volume, with roadways and rivers hand coloured, measuring approximately 53 x 71 cm. Plan was drawn by Edward Webb of Stow on the Wold, land surveyor, and features a scale bar and decorative compass rose. Full calf binding consisting of the original boards tooled, titled in gilt to front, with two working brass clasps, secured with a recent professionally crafted leather spine tastefully tooled in gilt, with gilt with morocco label. Volume measuring approximately 45 x 33 x 2 cm. Wear to boards, reinforced at hinge, otherwise in very good condition, internally clean and bright, a fascinating and detailed document. Statistically, Oxfordshire was one of the regions most affected by the enclosure movement. Between 1758 and 1882, 190 parliamentary enclosure acts were passed for the county, affecting 51% of its acreage, while 1/3 of parishes changed through no-parliamentary enclosure. The "enclosure" movement was the process by which the common fields, vast shared pastures and scattered tracts of arable land of rural medieval England, were consolidated and distributed to the wealthy and elite - resulting in the demise of the small farmer and the increase of national agricultural trade. The legal documents which recorded the new ownership and delineated the distribution of land - as seen here - were called "Inclosure Awards.". Manuscript.

        Neue Modifikation des Lichtes durch gegenseitige Einwirkung und Beugung der Strahlen, und Gesetze derselben.

      Münich: Lentner, [1822?]. First edition, the rare offprint issue, of the first quantitative discussion of the diffraction of light. Four years earlier, Fraunhofer had published his epochal discovery of dark lines in the solar spectrum, now called 'Fraunhofer lines,' which inaugurated the fields of spectroscopy and astrophysics. "In 1821 and 1823, shortly after Fresnel's studies of interference phenomena had received general attention, Fraunhofer published two papers in which he observed and analyzed certain diffraction phenomena and interpreted them in terms of a wave theory of light. In the 1821 paper [offered here] he discussed his examination of the spectra resulting from light diffracted through a single narrow slit and quantitatively related the width of the slit to the angles of dispersion of the different orders of spectra. Extending his observations to diffraction resulting from a large number of slits, he constructed a grating with 260 parallel wires. Although David Rittenhouse and Thomas Young had previously noted some effects of crude diffraction gratings, Fraunhofer made the first quantitative study of the phenomena. The presence of the solar dark lines enabled him to note that the dispersion of the spectra was greater with his grating than with his prism. Hence, he examined the relationship between dispersion and the separation of wires in the grating. Utilizing the dark lines as bench marks in the spectrum for his dispersion determinations, he concluded that the dispersion was inversely related to the distance between successive slits in the grating. From the same study Fraunhofer was able to determine the wavelengths of specific colors of light. Somewhat later he also constructed a grating by ruling lines on glass covered by gold foil and, even later, constructed a reflecting grating. The latter prompted him to consider the effects of light obliquely incident to the grating" (DSB). ABPC/RBH list two copies of this offprint (Christie's 23 April 2008, lot 127, $1988; Christie's 10 December 1999, $4370). "Fraunhofer (1787-1826) came from humble parentage in Straubing near Munich and had very little formal education, having lost both parents when he was eleven. In 1807, at the age of 20, he was hired by the Mathematical Mechanical Institute Reichenbach, Utzschneider and Liebherr, a firm founded in 1804 for the production of military and surveying instruments, for which high-quality optical glass for lenses was essential. The optical works of the firm were outside Munich, at a disused monastery in Benediktbeuern, where Fraunhofer received his training from a Swiss named Pierre Guinand (1748-1824). Guinand's considerable reputation rested on his skill in the production of relatively large and optically pure pieces of crown and flint glass. However, owing to a clash of personalities, Guinand resigned his contract in 1814 and returned to Switzerland, and at this time the whole firm passed into the hands of Joseph von Utzschneider and Fraunhofer" (Hearnshaw, The Analysis of Starlight: Two Centuries of Astronomical Spectroscopy, p. 17). "The glass experiments of Fraunhofer and a co-worker, financed by Utzschneider, soon gave the Benediktbeuern workshop considerable advantage over its competitors. To make better achromatic lens systems, for example, Fraunhofer needed precise determinations of the dispersion and refraction indices of flint and crown glass. He first made the necessary measurements using as a source of monochromatic light the bright yellow lines in the flame of a lamp. Then he tried sunlight with the same purpose in mind, which led him to a major discovery: 'In a darkened room, through a small opening in the shutter approximately 15 seconds wide and 36 minutes high, I let light fall on a prism of flint glass, which stood on the . . . theodolite. The theodolite was 24 feet from the shutter, and the angle of the prism measured approximately 60° ... I wanted to determine if in the spectrum of sunlight a similar bright line was to be seen as in the spectrum of lamplight, but instead of that I found, with the telescope, almost countless strong and weak vertical lines, which are darker than the remaining part of the spectrum; some appeared to be almost completely black.' "With these 'Fraunhofer lines,' as they came to be called, he had discovered the ideal means for determining the optical constants of the various kinds of glass used in the manufacture of optical instruments. He also presented to physicists, astronomers, and chemists a new phenomenon and a stimulus to develop the technique of spectrum analysis" (Jungnickel & McCormmach, pp. 269-270). Fraunhofer's paper, 'Bestimmung des Brechungs- und Farbenzerstreuungs- Vermögens verschiedener Glasarten,' describing this discovery, was published in Denkschriften der kniglichen Academie der Wissenschaften zu München 5 (1817). "This was the first of a number of scientific papers by Fraunhofer. In 1821, [Fraunhofer] published an influential paper on the diffraction of light, which he introduced with a characteristic reference to the dependence of the advance of science on precision instruments: it is well known, he said, that all researches carried out by scientists whose eyes are equipped with 'optical tools' are distinguished by a 'high degree of accuracy.' In the case of researches on diffraction, he said, adequate tools did not exist, which he thought was a likely reason why this part of physical optics was retarded and 'so few of the laws of this modification of light' were known ... For readers who were unfamiliar with it, he described the elementary phenomenon of diffraction: if the ray of light admitted into the darkened room is intercepted by a dark screen, itself containing a small opening, and if the light passing through it is allowed to fall on a white surface, the illuminated part of the surface is larger than the opening and exhibits colored fringes at the edges. He went on to give an account of his new experiments, which were of a measuring nature: 'To receive in the eye all the light diffracted through a small opening and to see the phenomena greatly enlarged and, still more, to be able to measure directly the angle of inflection of the light, I put a screen containing a narrow vertical opening, which could be made wider or narrower by means of a screw, in front of the lens of a theodolite telescope. In a dark room, by means of a heliostat, I let sunlight fall through a narrow opening onto the screen, at an opening of which it was consequently diffracted. Through the telescope I could then observe the phenomena produced by the diffraction of light, enlarged and yet with sufficient brightness, and at the same time measure the angles of inflection with the theodolite.' By this means, Fraunhofer determined that the angle of bending of light in diffraction is inversely proportional to the width of the opening. Likewise, using gratings of parallel fibers, such as silver or gold wires, he determined that the diffraction of light is inversely proportional to the separation of the wires. His gratings required fine workmanship to make the separation extremely small; with his grating of 260 wires, the separation was only about 0.003862 Paris inch and the thickness of the wires about 0.00202I inch. Later he ruled very fine gratings of glass covered with gold foil. By examining the dark solar lines with his gratings, he was able to calculate the wavelengths of specific colors of the spectrum. The precision he achieved with this 'optical tool in physical optics was impressive. "By this time Fraunhofer was back in Münich, since for financial reasons Utzschneider had had to sell the monastery in Benediktbeuem. By then he was also 'Royal Professor,' a title bestowed on him in recognition of his work, and the government had taken to calling on him for technical services. Soon after completing his paper on diffraction, in 1823 he asked the king for, and was granted, a salary as a member of the Bavarian Academy, which was to help him continue his theoretical and practical work. Later in 1823, he was named 'second curator' of the mathematical-physical collection of the academy. His duties included lectures for the educated public, a program the academy started in 1824. At Utzschneider's place, to an audience of his choice, Fraunhofer lectured twice weekly on 'mathematical-physical optics, accompanied by experiments.' Around this time there was some discussion of the state acquiring the optical institute, but the idea was dropped when Fraunhofer died in 1826. After Fraunhofer, the institute continued as a commercial firm under Utzschneider and later Siegmund Merz" (ibid., pp. 270-272). This offprint retains the journal pagination - in the journal each section is separately-paginated, this being the first article in the section 'Classe der Mathematik und Naturwissejchaften'. The journal volume in which this article appears is dated 1824, but at this period the Denkschriften were published only every three years and it is possible that parts of the journal, and hence some of the offprints, were printed earlier than the complete journal volume, possible as early as 1821.

Brunet claims that the English translation was made by ‘Miss Southey'. He is mistaken, the translation was incontestably made by Sarah Coleridge (see Maggs, Voy. & Tr. volume 5-822). Sara Coleridge's translation was judged by Samuel Coleridge to be ‘unsurpassed for pure[?] mother English by anything I have read for a long time.' The author went as a missionary to South America where for eleven years he worked in the Guarany Reductions before spending seven years in the four colonies of the Abipones. Giving many details of their 'manners, customs, superstitions, military discipline, slaughters inflicted and received, political and economical regulations, together with the vicissitudes of the recent colonies...'

President James Madison and Congress used the incident to claim the region, knowing full well that the Spanish government was seriously weakened by Napoleon&#146;s invasion of Spain. The United States asserted that the portion of West Florida from the Mississippi to the Perdido rivers was part of the Louisiana Purchase of 1803. Negotiations over Florida began in earnest with the mission of Don Luis de Onís to Washington in 1815 to meet Secretary of State James Monroe Adams used the Jackson&#146;s military action to present Spain with a demand to either control the inhabitants of East Florida or cede it to the United States. Minister Onís and Secretary Adams reached an agreement whereby Spain ceded East Florida to the United States and renounced all claim to West Florida. Spain received no compensation, but the United States agreed to assume liability for $5 million in damage done by American citizens who rebelled against Spain. Under the Onís-Adams Treaty of 1819 (also called the Transcontinental Treaty and ratified in 1821) the United States and Spain defined the western limits of the Louisiana Purchase and Spain surrendered its claims to the Pacific Northwest. In return, the United States recognized Spanish sovereignty over Texas.&#148; (Acquisition of Florida: Treaty of Adams-Onis (1819) and Transcontinental Treaty (1821), Office of the Historian, Department of State) Sin indicación de autor, si bien se atribuye al senador y gobernador por Georgia John Forsyth (1780 -1841). La única alusión en la obra se encuentra en la página 8 sobre el origen norteamericano del autor: &#147; Es fácil de adivinar que nadie sino un ciudadano del país cuya reputación se ve atacada, se tomaría el trabajo de hacer este servicio (pues así se debe llamar) hecho no solo a los Estados- Unidos sino también a la España Nada importa saber quién es el que hace estas observaciones: no es español; esto no se dice con engreimiento; porque desde el mes de marzo el llevar este nombre no es ya mengua, es una gloria. Es americano (vulgo, anglo-americano) nombre que en otro tiempo se daba a los habitantes de los actuales Estados-Unidos, pero que en el año 1776 se dejó juntamente con otras divisas de la esclavitud Luis de Onís (1762-1827), político y diplomático español, da nombre al famoso tratado &#147;Adams-Onís&#148; firmado en 1819 entre el gobierno americano y el español con la cesión del territorio de Florida como trasfondo. Onís llegó a Estados Unidos en 1809 como embajador ante el Congreso, su misión principal era el reconocimiento de la figura del rey Fernando VII y llegar un acuerdo en la cuestión de los límites fronterizos. Sobre los contenidos de la firma de dicho acuerdo y las negociaciones llevadas a cabo escribió en su Memoria sobre las negociaciones entre España y los Estados-Unidos de América que dieron motivo al tratado de 1819 : con una noticia sobre la estadística de aquel país : acompaña un apéndice, que contiene documentos importantes para mayor ilustración del asunto publicada en Madrid en 1820 por la misma imprenta de Miguel de Burgos. Las Observaciones de Forsyth, que verán la luz dos años después, son una respuesta a los argumentos de Onís, desde el punto de vista americano sobre los puntos conflictivos y el desarrollo de dichas negociaciones. Aunque en la página 80 se concluye con un &#147;Fin de la primera parte&#148; no hay constancia de que se publicara una continuación de la obra. Le siguen 13 páginas de apéndices y extractos de documentos y cartas fechados entre 1817 y 1819 en [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      DAGUERRE, LOUIS JACQUES MANDÉ. Ink and wash drawings of Jewish subjects and of musical instruments, signed by Daguerre "Dessiné le 12 Novembre 1822 LJM Daguerre." [Paris], 1822. A single sheet with measuring approximately 20 x 14 inches. Recto: four drawings of Jewish subjects, each captioned. Verso: twenty drawings by Daguerre of musical instruments, each captioned. Minor soiling and foxing, marginal tears. This is a series of four fine drawings of Jewish subjects by L. J. M. Daguerre, the inventor of photography: 1. "Juif tenant le Mezuzoth" (Jew holding a mezuzah) 2. "Juif en habit de priereur" (Jew in prayer dress) 3. "Ancien tombeau de Rachel, selon J. Nicolai" (Former Tomb of Rachel, according to J. Nicolai) 4. "Tombeau de Rachel tel qu'on le voit a present selon Mr. Le Brun et autres voyageurs" (Tomb of Rachel as one sees it today .). The verso contains twenty drawings by Daguerre of musical instruments, each captioned in manuscript. Daguerre (1787-1851) began his professional artistic career as an artist and set designer, working at the Paris Opera. In 1822 he opened the Diorama next to his Paris studio. The Diorama presented visual extravaganzas with enormous paintings and amazing light effects for a standing audience of 350. Daguerre executed these drawings in the year he opened the Diorama. In that year Joseph Nicéphore Niépce created the world's first heliograph, the first permanent photograph from nature. Daguerre soon formed a partnership with Niépce to perfect a photographic process. Finally in 1839 the French government granted Daguerre and Niépce's son a pension in exchange for the rights, making the process available as a gift from France, "free to the world." Daguerre's fine drawings are very scarce in commerce.
