        Ile d'Ounimak, Pl. XIII (Unimak Island)

      First Edition: Paris, Firmin Didot 1822 - Louis Choris (1795-1828) Voyage Pittoresque Autour du Monde First Edition: Paris, Firmin Didot, 1822 Lithograph with original hand coloring in superb condition. Sheet size: 10” x 16 1/4” This view of Unimak Island, the largest Island in the Alaskan chain of Islands, the Aleutian Islands, recalls the voyage of the Rurik, 1815-1818, commanded by the Russian Otto von Kotzbue, and the expedition’s search for the Northwest Passage, entering the Pacific via the Horn and returning to Europe via the Cape of Good Hope and St. Helena. Choris, the official artist on the expedition, was invited by the St. Petersberg Academy to accompany Kotzbue and the present work represents a fine cross section of the places that the expedition visited: it includes views of Teneriffe, Brazil, Chile, the Pacific Islands, Hawaii, Kamchatka, Philippines, the Cape of Good Hope and Saint Helena. Choris’ magnificent work offers important pictorial representations of the people, landscape, and artifacts of the then mysterious islands of the Pacific, California, Alaska, the northwest coast of America, and other far-off lands. This work has great American interest because of its lithographs and its account of Hawaii, California, the Queen Charlotte Islands, the Aleutians, St. Lawrence Island in the Bering Sea, and Kotzebue Island in Alaska. The lithographs are of all aspects of native life and culture. After the voyage of the Rurik, Choris went to Paris to continue work for Voyage Pittoresque Autour du Monde. Seized by an irresistible craving for adventure, Choris left France in 1827 for South America. He met his end when he was murdered by robbers on March 22, 1828, en route to Vera Cruz, Mexico.

        Vers merins from Voyage Pittoresque Autour du Monde

      Paris, 1822 - Louis Choris (1795-1828) Vers merins from Voyage Pittoresque Autour du Monde Hand-colored lithograph Paris, 1822 14 3/4” x 20 1/2” framed Louis (or Ludovik) Choris, a Russian of German extraction, showed a talent for natural history illustration at a remarkably early age, and initially won high praise for his pictorial work on Biberstein's journey to the Caucasus in 1813. His most celebrated publications, however, were the Voyage Pittoresque Autour du Monde and the Vues et Paysages des Regions Equinoxiales. In both of these magnificent works, Choris provided important pictorial representations of the people, landscape, and artifacts of the still-mysterious islands of the Pacific, California, Alaska, the northwest coast of America, and other far-off lands. Choris had first-hand knowledge of these places, having been the official artist accompanying the Russian expedition around the world led by Otto von Kotzebue, the primary object of which was the search for a Northwest Passage. The voyage took place in 1815-1818 aboard the “Rurik,” which entered the Pacific via the Horn and eventually returned to Europe via the Cape of Good Hope and St. Helena. Choris had been invited by the St. Petersburg Academy to accompany Kotzbue, and the two published works which resulted represent a fine cross-section of the places that the expedition visited, specifically including such locales as Teneriffe, Brazil, Chile, the Pacific Islands, Hawaii, Kamchatka, the Philippines, the Cape of Good Hope and Saint Helena. These works have great American interest because of their lithographs and accounts of California, the Queen Charlotte Islands, the Aleutians, St. Lawrence Island in the Bering Sea, and Kotzebue Island in Alaska. The illustrations concern all aspects of native life and culture, and Choris’s books are considered to be one of the most beautiful relating to travel.

        Autograph letter signed ("Byron") to Captain John Hay ("My dear Hay")

      Pisa, 19 January, 1822. One page, octavo (200 × 125 mm), written on one side only. Small circular blindstamp of Dobbs & Co, London, at foot below the text. Housed in a black quarter morocco slipcase with chemise by the Chelsea Bindery. Byron writes to thank his old friend for an unusual gift: "A Thousand and one thanks for the boar - which has arrived in high order - and entire. But I wish you were here to partake of your magnifique present. When do you return?" and continuing to his valediction "with a haste not to keep your man waiting". Byron had moved to Pisa at the end of October 1821 to join the Shelleys and Teresa Guiccioli, and Hay joined their Pisan circle (including, besides Byron and Shelley, Edward and Jane Williams and Leigh Hunt and his family) the following January. Hay, a Scot from Kelso, Roxburghshire, had known Byron as early as 1809 and perhaps earlier. He was related, though distantly, to Byron's youthful love Mary Duff and, through a connection with the Gordons, even more distantly to Byron himself. They enjoyed a bluff masculine relationship, characterized in part by their 1809 wager, Byron betting Hay fifty guineas to one that he would never get married, a bet he had to pay out six years later. By 1812 Hay was a blood in London society, acquainted with Martin Hawke (son of Baron Hawke of Towton), and Lords Powerscourt and Blessington, all known to Byron, when Thomas Medwin was introduced into their circle, and later to Byron. The present letter, acknowledging a gift of spoils from the hunt, is highly characteristic of their relationship during Hay's stay in Pisa. Hay played a central role in the most violent episode of Byron's Pisan sojourn, when on 24 March the male friends were riding out for their customary afternoon's pistol shooting. A local dragoon, Sergeant-Major Stefani Masi of the Tuscan Royal Light Horse, brushed past, startling one of their horses, and started an affray in which Masi slashed Hay across the face with his sabre and knocked Shelley unconscious. Masi was later stabbed with a pitchfork by an unidentified assailant, perhaps one of Byron's servants. The Masi affair was one catalyst in dispersing the Pisan circle. Hay left for England on 3 April, presumably to have his facial wound tended. Two disasters finally broke the circle - first the death of Byron's five-year-old daughter Allegra on 20 April and then the drowning of Shelley, Williams and Charles Vivian on 8 July - and Byron left Pisa for the summer residence Hay had found for him, the Villa Dupuy on a hillside in Montenero, several kilometers south of Leghorn, which however proved unbearably hot.

Palgrave II, pag. 59: "Filangeri was one of the most important writers on economics in the latter years of the last century. He did not.create a new system, or any new theory; he had a considerable acquaintance with the economical studies of his time., he followed no leader, standing between the physiocratic and mercantilist theory; he sustains the principle of the balance of trade, but he argues for a system of liberty both for exportation and importation tempered only by the opinion that laws ought to be different in countries differently circunstanced; his works are thus the prelude to a historical system of social legislation".

        Sur les fonctions du cerveau et sur celles de chacune de ses parties

      Paris: l&#39;Auteur, 1822. Second edition. Gall, Franz Joseph (1758-1828) & Spurzheim, Johann Caspar (1776-1832). Sur les fonctions du cerveau et sur celles de chacune de ses parties. . . . 8vo. Multi-vol. text, each vol. with own title. Paris: l&#39;Auteur. . . , 1822-25. 6 vols. 214 x 135 mm. Gilt red boards c. 1825, uncut. Fine set. <p> edition, revised, of the Anatomie et physiologie du systeme nerveux(1810-19) which introduced the theory of localization of cerebral function. See Garrison-Morton 1389. This new edition in reduced format was revised by Gall without the collaboration of Spurzheim. </p><p>The volumes(except vol. 3) bear the AUTOGRAPH SIGNATURE of Gall on the versos of their half-titles to protect against pirated editions. In order to hold the price down Gall did not republish the magnificent folio-sized plates of the first edition for the second, and he deleted the portion on the descriptive anatomy of the brain and nervous system, concentrating on the physiology. In the sixth volume, however, Gall discussed the treatises on neuroanatomy and neurophysiology published between 1819 and 1825 as a way of answering the criticisms of his work by such authors as Flourens.
