        Medaille Hollandaise

      Paris, 1822. Engraved plate, 330 x 250mm, some aging at edges, mounted. The engraved image of the Vlamingh Plate from the Atlas Historique of Louis de Freycinet's Voyage Autour Du Monde.In 1697 Dutch Captain William de Vlamingh landed at Cape Inscription and found Dirk Hartog's plate, which Hartog had placed there in 1616 with an inscription detailing their voyage and destination. When found by Vlamingh the plate was badly weathered and the post had almost rotted away. Vlamingh copied the record on to another plate, added his own inscription and nailed it to a new post. The Hartog plate returned to the Netherlands with Vlamingh. The new inscription on the Vlamingh Plate read:1697 The 4th February is here arrived the ship The Geelvinck for Amsterdam. The Commodore and Skipper William De Vlamingh of Vlielandt, Assistant Joannes Bremer of Copenhagen Upper Steersman Michil Bloem of The Bishopric of Bremen The Hooker The Nyptangh Skipper Gerrit Colaart of Amsterdam Assit Theodoris Heirmans Ditto Upper Steersman Gerrit Geritson of Bremen The Galliot The Weeseltie Commander Cornelis De Vlamingh of Vlielandt Steerman Coert Gerritsen of Bremen Sailed from Here with our fleet the also The Southland Further to Explore and Bound for Batavia.For just over 120 years the plate remained where it was intended, Freycinet arrived on the Western Australian coast in September 1818 with the express purpose of recovering the relic and returning it to France. He was successful and it remained in France until it was presented back to Australia in 1947 by the French Government.

        The District of Albany formerly t'Zuurenveld, being the eastern frontier of the Colony of the Cape if Good Hope, shewing locations of the settlers lately arrived from England

      1822. Handcoloured engraved map measuring 605 x 890 mm. (sheet size); lower blank margin chipped (but well outside plate mark), a very good copy. "Fine pasture country, uninhabited and considered as neutral ground" Detailed topographic map of the Albany district (present day South Africa) presenting a wilderness mapped but largely untamed.This map was published by William Faden (1749-1836), one of the more prolific cartographic publishers of the later eighteenth-century who began his trade with Thomas Jefferys. In 1783 Faden was appointed geographer to the king and by 1796 'he assembled an unrivalled stock of large-scale maps of the British counties'. Over the coming two decades Faden served the emerging market for maps of the colonies, of which this chart of the Cape of Good Hope is a good example. A sense of the frontier nature of this country is given in note engraved in a blank section to the northeast corner: 'fine pasture country, uninhabited and considered as neutral ground since to convention with the Caffre chiefs, after the last disturbances in the Year 1819'.

Come fisico compì ricerche di ottica e di idraulica; da queste ultime deriva il cosiddetto tubo di Venturi?". Così Diz. Treccani,XII, p. 695. Fresco esemplare con barbe, ben conservato.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Ihr Verehrer und alter Freund Göckingk").

      Salzbrunn, 27. Juli 1822.. 4 SS. 8vo. Dicht beschrieben.. An Henriette Kohlrausch. Ausführlicher Brief, der außer Berichten über Heilerfolge bei seinen Verwandten Schilderungen des gesellschaftlichen Lebens in dem schlesischen Badeort Salzbrunn und dem Nachbarstädtchen Altwasser enthält: "[...] Aus den 45 hrschftl. Equipagen, die hier am Brunnen sind, können Sie schon schließen, wie zahlreich die Gesellschaft ist. Gestern haben 110 Personen an Einer Tafel im Saale gespeiset, doch waren wohl 20 bis 30 aus Altwasser darunter [...] So glänzend wie in diesem Jahre ist die hiesigen Gesellschaft noch nie gewesen. Es macht einen seltsamen Contrast, wenn man aus kleinen, elenden Bauernhütten die geputzten Damen herauskriechen und an den mit Papier geflickten Fenstern die neumodigen Hüthe prangen sieht. Troz den mancherley Unbequemlichkeiten [...] scheinen doch alle mit dem hiesigen Aufenthalte zufrieden zu seyn [...] Es sind 13 Aerzte hier, um den Brunnen für sich selbst zu gebrauchen [...] Wenn Ihr Herr Gemahl nicht auch ein Arzt wäre, so könnte ich mich nicht enthalten, einige Glossen über diese große Zahl kranker Aerzte zu machen [...] Die Butenopsche Schauspieler-Gesellschaft hat eine Scheune (an die aber noch ein Stück angebauet worden) in ein recht anständiges Theater verwandelt. Garderobe und Decorationen sind besser, als ich noch bei einer umher ziehenden Truppe gesehen habe, und die Butenopsche spielt so leidlich, daß einige ihrer Mitglieder selbst auf den Berliner Bühnen nicht misfallen würden. Nur Operetten sollte sie schon deshalb nicht geben, weil die Musiker vom Brunnen eigentlich bloß zum Tanz aufzuspielen gewohnt sind. - Die jungen Damen in Altwasser sind übel daran, denn sie haben dort nur 3 Tänzer, weshalb noch kein Ball hat zu Stande gebracht werden können; hier hingegen sind ihrer an 30, und unter diesen allein zehn Officiers aus Berlin, größten Theils von den Garde-Regimentern. Es wird also täglich getanzt [...]". - Die erwähnte reisende Theatertruppe, die vornehmlich in Schlesien agierte, wurde hier bereits von Karl Butenop junior geleitet, da sein Vater Carl Heinrich, der angesehene Gründer und langjährige Direktor der Truppe, im Vorjahr seiner Tochter nach Wien gefolgt war.

        The Broad Stone of Honour:

      London: printed for F. C. & J. Rivington,, 1822. or, Rules for the Gentlemen of England. Octavo (180 × 105 mm). Bound by S. Corey of Ballyclare in contemporary half calf, spine gilt in compartments with title direct, marbled sides and edges. With the half title and vignette-engraved title page. Contemporary ownership inscription of John Owens, Worcester College, Oxford, to title page. Spine, sides and corners rubbed, front joint and the head of rear joint starting, very slight spotting to a few end leaves, a very good copy. First edition of the rare original production of this chivalric primer by antiquarian writer Kenelm Henry Digby (1797-1880), which would find broad popularity expanded into four separately published parts Morus (1826), Tancredus (1828), Orlandus (1829) and Godefridus (1829), and again collectively republished in the 1840s and 1870s. Though now almost unknown, Digby's Broad Stone of Honour is interesting both as an evocation of an eccentric personal fascination (Digby took his title from his favourite castle, Ehrenbreistein) recalcitrantly at odds with the utilitarian industrial age in which it was composed, and in its significant contemporary influence on ideas of honour and gentlemanly conduct. It was partially through Digby's enthusiastic attempt to revive, from out of medieval romances such as Malory's Morte D'Arthure (recently in 1816 reprinted for the first time since 1634) and others more obscure, the spirit of chivalry (in particular the evaluation of the honour over intellect, and the disdain for making money) that the Victorian concept of a proper gentleman was formed. Digby's preface gives a fair flavour of the text: "Wherefore I have enterprized, under the favour and correction of all noble gentlemen and gentlewomen, to frame and imprint a book of ensamples and doctrines, which I call The Broad Stone of Honour; seeing that it will be a fortress, like that rock upon the Rhine, where coward or traitor never stood, which bears this proud title, and is impregnable; where all may stand who love honour, and true nobility may look down upon their enemies, who are vainly plotting in the plain below; where they may enjoy a purity of feeling, which, like "the liberal air," that surrounds that lofty summit, is free from the infection of a base world." The origins of the Boy Scout movement have also been traced back to Digby's Broad Stone of Honour. Though reasonably well represented institutionally (OCLC listing 18 copies worldwide), this true first edition is rare in commerce, with only two copies ever recorded at auction, the last in 1951.

        Narrative of the Operations and Recent Discoveries within the Pyramids, Temples, Tombs, in Egypt and Nubia; and a journey to the coast of the Red Sea, in search of the Ancient Berenice, and another oasis of Jupiter Ammon

        Reed Warbler

      London: J.H. Bohte, 1822. Handcoloured engraving, 289 x210mm, framed. The Reed Warbler is an interesting bird, found down Eastern Australia to Victoria and Tasmania, but coming and going mysteriously in the southern parts of its habitat. Besides being a migrant, the Reed Warbler, as its name indicates, is a merry and cheerful songster, not only by day but by night, its song being quite canary-like. The bird's habitat is the sedgy sides of rivers and reeds and rushes of swamps, you cannot always see the birds in such secluded areas, but their presence or arrival can always be ascertained by hearing their loud merry warbles.John Lewin was Australia's first professional artist, he arrived in the colony in 1800 and established himself as the first natural history artist. He is best remembered through the superb books he published on Australian ornithology and entomology.As the catalogue of the Wettenhall Library pointed out, "The bibliographical and historical importance of Lewin has been emphasised in recent years, but Lewin the naturalist has been somewhat neglected. Although his illustrations are in the style of the eighteenth century and predate the draughtsmanship, finesse and varied palette developed by the great nineteenth-century illustrators such as Lear, Wolf and Keulemans, they are highly competent and show the mind of an excellent observer. Lewin's birds are correct; the feather detail, legs, particularly the positioning of the toes, posture of the bird, the understanding of male and female plumage, the interactions between male and female (in four plates the male is singing and displaying to the female) are accurate and show a keen observer at work. The other important detail in Lewin's illustrations are the plants: they demonstrate an observer who is familiar with his subject's habitat and life-history."After Lewin's death in 1819, his widow Anna returned to England, where she set about producing a new edition of her husband's beautiful book, adding an extra eight plates for the new edition, this plate being plate XVIII from Lewin's A Natural History of the Birds of New South Wales published in 1822.
