        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

      London: John Murray , 1822 2 volumes, 8vo, 19th century half calf and marbled boards, spines tooled in gilt, illustrated with lithographed folding map of the course of the Nile, and folding plan of Temple of Jerusalem, [iii]-xxv, [1], 438; [iii]-x, 421, [1] pp. Rubbing to covers, paper peeling from boards in a couple of places, some marginal staining and foxing, bookplate; as is usually the case this set lacks atlas volume. Belzoni (1778-1823), sometimes known as The Great Belzoni, was an active explorer of Egyptian antiquities. On an expedition to Thebes he removed the ?colossal bust of Ramesses II? and sent it to the British Museum where it remains today. He also visited the temple of Edfu, was involved with the excavation of Seti I, and was the first to penetrate the second pyramid of Giza. He became ill during a trip to the Kingdom of Benin and died there, but another famous explorer, Richard Francis Burton, suggested he was murdered.

        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.

        [AUTOGRAPH DOCUMENT, SIGNED WITH INITIALS, IN WHICH JOHN TRUMBULL AGREES TO USE HIS PAINTING OF THE Declaration of Independence AS COLLATERAL FOR A LOAN]

      [New York]. March 10, 1822.. [1]p. Docketed on verso. Quarto sheet. Old fold lines. Bottom third separated at fold. Minor wear. Good plus. A remarkable document written by American artist John Trumbull, utilizing his original painting of "The Declaration of Independence" as collateral to secure a loan from the Bank of New York. This document, addressed to Charles Wilkes as the cashier of the Bank of New York, reads in part: "Now therefore, being desirous to Secure him as far as is in my power against loss by the uncertainty of Life & prosperity, I do hereby hypothecate & pledge to him the sd. Charles Wilkes the Senate painting of the declaration of Independence now in the hands of Mr. [Asher Brown] Durand the Engraver and also the Copper plate which He is engraving from the Same as collateral Security for any Sum which he may hazard by any accident befalling me. And this pledge shall remain in full force until all and every Note or Notes which He may have endorsed for me shall be paid & Cancelled." Trumbull is referring to his original painting of this famous event, which was begun in Paris at the suggestion of Thomas Jefferson. Trumbull was later commissioned by the Congress to paint a 12 by 18-foot version based on this original. This larger painting was sold to Congress in 1819, so it is almost certainly the original smaller version that remained in his possession (now at Yale University Art Gallery) that was being used as collateral for a loan. Hailed as the official painter of the Revolution, Trumbull studied painting and art in England and France. The youngest son of the governor of Connecticut, the elder John Trumbull very much wanted his son to go into law. Trumbull did study the law, but gladly joined the fight against the British when the Revolution broke out. He eventually served as Washington's second aide-de-camp, having been brought to the General's attention through some very accurate drawings he had made of British gun emplacements. He rose to the rank of colonel as a deputy adjutant-general, but resigned the commission he finally received because it was dated three months late, a slight his honor could not tolerate. He refused to return to the law, finding it distasteful, and chose instead to pursue his true passion, art, against his family's wishes. Though he was never wealthy in this pursuit, he did achieve a certain amount of success in his own lifetime. Among his most famous works are those commissioned in 1817 by Congress to adorn the Capitol building: "The Surrender of General Burgoyne at Saratoga," "The Surrender of General Cornwallis at Yorktown," "The Declaration of Independence," and "The Resignation of General Washington." Charles Wilkes (1764-1833) was promoted to president of the Bank of New York in 1825, a position he held until his retirement in 1832. Engraver Asher B. Durand (1796- 1886) made his name with his 1823 engraving of Trumbull's Declaration. He turned to painting in the 1830s and helped to found the Hudson River School movement. The original "Declaration of Independence," redeemed from loan, was later part of of Trumbull's founding gift to the Yale University Art Gallery.

        [Scrapbook]: A Collection of Newspaper Clippings & Hand-Colored Wood and Steel engravings (circa 1822-1830)

      [Massachusetts]. (1822-1830). Folio scrapbook. 166pp. Contemporary dark red half morocco, marbled papercovered boards. Front board is detached, spine a little loose and a few detached leaves, else very good. A neatly assembled scrapbook collection of newspaper articles, poems, songs, and miscellaneous extracts on various topics relating to fashion, morals, and current events, spanning the years 1822-1830. All neatly tipped-in on the versos and rectos of 83 unnumbered leaves in three columns; with a variety of custom cut and painted divisional borders, and numerous hand-colored wood and steel engraved vignettes of various sizes tipped-in between the clippings. The album also contains embossed color and gilt vignettes, half-page and full-page portrait and landscape wood and steel engravings, and one early American satirical lithograph by W.I. Stone. Most of the clippings are from local newspapers published in Boston, New York, and Philadelphia. Two large wood-engravings (of the Berkshire Medical Institution in Pittsfield, Massachusetts on the front pastedown, and the Town of Sherburne, Nantucket on the rear pastedown) indicate the album's geographical focus in Massachusetts. Most clippings reflect the morality, humor, and wit of an educated New England lady with decidedly liberal leanings and a special interest in Lord Byron and steamboats. The tipped-in vignettes and engravings are especially fine and varied in subject manner, the cutting and hand-coloring is accomplished, and the entire album was clearly made with considerable care, thus preserving a graphically vivid picture of the period. .

        The Liberal. Verse and Prose from the South

      London: Printed by and for John Hunt, 1822-23 - Contains the first appearances of Shelley's 'song written for an Indian Air," and "May-Day Night," Byron's "The Vision of Judgment," "Heaven and Earth," "The Blues, a Literary Ecologue" and Byron's translation of the first canto of Pulci's "Morgante Maggiore." There are also pieces by Hazlitt, Hunt and others of the romantic poets. The Hunt brothers had solicited Byron's assistance to attract subscribers, and he had lent his name to the venture, named the magazine "The Liberal" and supplied contributions out of sympathy for their financial condition. But, by February 1823 Byron had had enough: " as long as I thought 'the Liberal' could be of service to him and to his brother-I was happy to conduce to it- though I opposed it from the beginning- knowing how it would end-but that as it answers little to them- and is highly injurious to me in every way-I wish to retire from it" (letter to Kennaid, 27 Feb. 1823) The first number of "The Liberal" (October 15, 1822) was severely attacked because of Byron's "Vision of Judgment" which satirized Southey's "A Vision of Judgment," made mockery of George III's meeting with the tribunal of Heaven and derided the Poet Laureate's reputation. Southey's work had included an attack on Byron referring to him as the leader of the 'satanic School" in the preface. Byron had warned John Hunt, "to pause-or erase passages likely to be obnoxious" (letter to Kinnaird 30 October 1822) obviously without effect (BYRON, LORD) First edition, first issue with the four separate content leaves and one for each volume inserted instead and the 11 line errata. 2 vols., 8vo.

Swainson is considered one of the best zoological artists of his time. "The authors of those books were clearly as much seduced by colour as were the book buyers.

The world of nature can never before have seemed so colourful: from all parts of the globe came a seemingly endless succession of animals ." (Dance, The Art of Natural History p. 112).

      - Paris, "Quai Voltaire N°7", 27.XI.1822. 1 Seite gr.-4°. Mit Siegelspur und Adresse (mot Poststempel). Adressblatt mit schmalen Falzresten. Frederick Albert Winsor (ursprünglich Friedrich Albrecht Winzer, * Braunschweig 1763, ? Paris 1830), Pionier der Gastechnik, unternahm, 1804 mit einem Privileg König Georgs III. von England ausgestattet, die ersten Versuche in Europa zur Straßenbeleuchtung mit Gas. - An Monsieur de Berat, "President du Conseil de Salubrité" in Paris, den er um Befürwortung des ihm sehr am Herzen liegenden Projekts einer Gasbeleuchtung für Paris bittet. Die ausgearbeiteten Pläne habe er dem Adressaten bereits am 4. November zugestellt; Einwände könne es kaum geben in Anbetracht seiner erfolgreichen Beleuchtung der Place St. Michel, die seit ihrer Einführung vor zweieinhalb Jahren den Anwohnern keinen Anlass zur Klage gegeben habe. - - ". M'étant presenté deuxfois à Votre Hotel, sans avoir eu l'honneur de Vous recontrer, je prends la liberté, à Vous faire observer, que j'ai apris à la Prefecture de Police, que Vous etiez nanti depuis le 4 Novbr. d'un objet qui me concerne et dont j'ai fort à cour, le developpement ulterieur et dont les pieces Vous ont été referées. - - J'ose esperer, que ni le Terrain en question, ni l'établissement des Usines d'Eclairage par le Gaz, peuvent plus fournir matière d'objection, vu, leur augmentation depuis que j'ai établit le premier Atelier d'Eclairage en l'Eglise de St. Louis au Jardin du Luxembourg, derrière la place de St. Michel - et dont les habitans ne sont jamais plaint pendant les deux ans et demi, que j'ai eclairé ce quartier. - - Ainsi, j'attends de Votre complaisance un rapport favorable à mes voux e à celui, de la verité ." - - In der Unterschrift weist Winsor auf sein von König Ludwig XVIII. verliehenes Privileg hin: "F A Winsor / brevêté par S. M. pour l'Eclairage par le gaz carbonné depuis 1815". - - Briefe dieses bedeutenden Ingenieurs, dessen Pionierleistungen von ökonomischen Misserfolgen überschattet wurden, sind äußerst selten im Handel, zumal solche, die seine lebenslange Leidenschaft zum Gegenstand haben.

        Dissertatio Inauguralis Physiologica sistens Commentarii de Phoronomia Animalium. Decano et Promotore A.Fr.Jos. Carolo Mayer.

      . Bonnae, Typis C.F. Thormanni, Decembris 1822, Kl.4°, 44 pp., 1 Bl., 1 gefalt. lith. Tafel., OBrosch; leicht wasserfleckig!. Extrem Selten! - - Johannes Müller (1801-1858) zu Coblenz als Sohn eines Schuhmachers geboren, war schon als Knabe ungewöhnlich veranlagt und von dem derzeitigen Leiter der Schulen in den Rheinlanden, dem späteren vortragenden Rat im preuss. Unterrichtsministerium Joh.Schulze auf alle Weise gefördert, studierte seit 1819 und promovierte 1822 in Bonn. - Zum Zweck der Ablegung des med. Staatsexamen begab er sich dann nach Berlin und trat hier während eines 1 1/2 jährigen Aufenthaltes zu RUDOLPHI in nähere Beziehungen, was für Müller's Ausbildung von wohlthätigem Einfluss insofern war, als Müller nach eigenem Geständnis von Rudolphi der naturphilosophischen Richtung entfremdet und der unbefangenen Naturbetrachtung, speziell den anatomischen Studien, zugeführt wurde. Nach seiner Rückkehr aus Berlin habilitierte Müller sich 1824 in Bonn als Privatdozent, wurde 1826 a.o., 1830 ord. Prof. und 1833 als ord. Prof. der Anatomie und Physiologie, sowie als Direktor des anatomischen Theaters und anatomischen-zootomischen Museums an Rudolphi's Stelle nach Berlin berufen. Hier wirkte er als eine der Zierden der Berliner Fakultät und Universität bis zu seinem 28.April 1858 plötzlich an Herzleiden erfolgten Tode. - Müller wird zu Recht als glorreiches Haupt und anerkannter Führer einer biologischen Schule verehrt. Als Forscher und Lehrer vielseitig und bahnbrechend wie selten jemand, hat er in beiden Beziehungen namentlich auf den Gebieten der vergleichenden Anatomie und Physiologie eine geradezu überwältigende Tätigkeit entwickelt und diese Disziplinen mit zahllosen Neuerungen bereichert.-cf.Pagel - - Erste und einzige Ausgabe der extrem seltenen Dissertation von Johannes Müller. - "Die Bewegungsstudien an Gliedertieren, die der Einjährig-Freiwillige drei Jahre vorher an der Koblenzer Kasernenmauer begonnen hatte, fanden also eine Fortsetzung. Die im Isis-Aufsatz (seine erste Publikation) mitgeteilten Gedanken und Beobachtungen wurden noch erheblich vermehrt und dann von Müller als Inaugural-Dissertation unter dem Titel "De Phoronomia Animalium" (deutsch etwa: "Bewegungsgesetze im Tierreich") bei der Medizinischen Fakultät der Universität Bonn eingereicht. Das Grundprinzip vergleichender Physiologie wird bereits hier angewandt: ein und dieselbe Funktion, hier die Bewegung, wird bei Tieren der verschiedensten systematischen Zugehörigkeit untersucht und in Vergleich gebracht. Viele von Müller mitgeteilte Einzelbeobachtungen sind wertvoll und wurden von ihm später in sein "Handbuch der Physiologie" aufgenommen." - "So wird das Leben in der Bewegung gedeutet als eine "organische Säule"; die Pole sind Bewegung und Streckung, oder die Kreisbewegung und die Bewegung in der Längenform: - beide auseinandergerissene Hälften der parabolischen Linie, auf welcher das Leben spielt"." - "Nun - wenige Jahre später hätte Müller diese Sätze nicht mehr geschrieben, und es ist zu glauben, was Du Bois-Reymond mitteilt: "Mit solchem Ingrimm blickte Müller nachmals auf diese Verirrungen zurück, daß er selber dieser Arbeiten nie wieder gedachte, und jedes Exemplar, dessen er habhaft werden konnte, a u f k a u f t e und v e r b r a n n t e"." - G. Koller, Johannes Müller, 1958, S.32-34 - "Unter seinen Thesen verteidigt er u.a. die Auffassung:"Psychologus nemo, nisi physiologus". Das ist ein Gegenstand, den er auch später hin oft behandelt hat." - Später in "Berlin wird Müller für immer von seiner Neigung zur romantischen Interpretation der Natur geheilt, ohne daß er den Wert einer philosophischen Betrachtung der Natur je geleugnet, noch für überflüssig erklärt hätte. Ganz im Gegenteil, er hat es immer wieder ausgesprochen, daß es keine sinnvolle naturwissenschaftliche Forschung gibt ohne die Einordnung des Erfahrenen in das nur gedanklich zu erfassende und zu erweiternde Gesamtbild der Natur." siehe ausführlich - K.E. Rothschuh, Geschichte der Physiologie, 1953, pp.112-118

        The Fossils of the South Downs; Or Illustrations of the Geology of Sussex

      London: Lupton Relfe, 1822.. First edition, 4to, (xvi), 327, (1 advertisement) pp. 41 plates, 2 folding and 4 hand coloured plus a hand coloured geological map, some mostly light foxing, bookplate of the Earl of Enniskillen. Contemporary half calf, marbled sides, gilt banded and blind stamped spine with a maroon label, recent expert restoration to the top of the spine and joints. "...Mantell's first and in some respects most important book... a systematic description, by stratum, of the Secondary and Tertiary formations of Sussex. Mantell also described and illustrates the fossils to be found in each stratum. Seventy-six of these fossils, new to science, were here named by him for his scientific friends... he was able to note... a number of fossil plants, shells, and fishes, together with some extremely curious vertebrae, teeth, and bones of unknown but obviously gigantic reptiles. As time would reveal, these... included both Megalosaurus and Iguanadon" (Dean). William Cole, 3rd Earl of Enniskillen, was a keen palaeontologist and from a young age put together a large collection of fossil fish housed at the family seat Florence Court, often travelling in search of new specimens with his friend, the great fossil collector, Sir Philip de Malpas Grey-Egerton. Both naturalists' collections were later acquired by what became the Natural History Museum at South Kensington. A contemporary of Mantell, the latter's journal entry for 15th June 1842 records a Geological Society meeting where he "Gossiped with Dr. Buckland, Grant, Lord Enniskillen, Sir P.G. Egerton, Mr. Greenough, Murchison... etc." Dean 40.

        Symptoms of Being Amused

      London: Thomas McLean, 1822. First edition. Half Morocco over Marbled Boards. Very Good . Oblong, 14 by 9.5 inches, 34 by 24.5 cm. With 42 comical Alken hand-colored plates (including title page), all watermarked 1822 Thomas McLean. These measure pictorially, not counting margins, 10.5 by 8 inches. Tooley 57. Each plate contains several designs and accompanying captions, sometimes, but always, related to the other illustrations on the same page. Yet regardless of this, the format does create a liveliness on the page and contributes to the inimitable sense of movement so essential to Alken's art. With also an one page preface. Being Alken, many of the illustrations are of equine and/or sporting interest, and the lampooning is fundamentally visual. Sympathetically rebacked with half red morocco over marbled boards. The binding does have some shelfwear and worn corners. The leather, nonetheless, remains healthy.Binding is tight. There is a fair amount of finger soiling in the margins, and a few minor, now repaired, closed tears. Color throughout is bright.Plus

        O Mudo de Pernambuco, ou Gervazio em Lisboa.

      [Colophon] Lisbon, Na Officina que foi de Lino da Silva Godinho, 1822. - Caption title. "M" in "Mudo" of title printed right side up. 8 pp. 4°, disbound. In very good condition. Old ink foliation, "217-224" in upper outer corners. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION, with the caption title apparently in its second state. Two sonnets and a 45-stanza poem directed against Gervasio Pires Ferreira, who was derisively known in Lisbon as the "the Mute of Pernambuco." These poems were printed while Gervasio Pires Ferreira was being held prisoner in Lisbon after the failure of the Junta in 1822. The nickname "the Mute of Pernambuco" originated in the loss of speech that he experienced after he was sent to a prison in Bahia for participating in the revolution of 1817. Gervasio Pires Ferreira was elected president of the assembly of Pernambuco in 1821, after which he regained his power of speech. ---- Borba de Moraes (1983), II, 601.
