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.

        The History of Modern Europe. In seven volumes

      sp;- London - F. C. and J. Rivington et al 1822 - A lovely set of the scarce 1822 London edition of Russell'sunusual historical work, writtenin epistolary form. A new edition, with a continuation, terminating at the establishment of the Austrian power in Italy, in 1821. 'With an account of the decline and fall of the Roman Empire; and a view of the progress of society, from the rise of the modern Kingdoms to the peace of Paris in 1763; in a series of letters from a nobleman to his son'. The epistolary form was chosen 'for uniting the accuracy of the chronologer with the entertrainment of the memorialist: and the character of a nobleman and a father was assumed, in order to give greater weight to the moral and political maxims, and to entitle the writer to offer, without seeming to dictate to the world, such reflections on life and manners, as are supposed more immediately to belong to the higher orders of society'. Complete in seven volumes. William Russell, (17461793). Russell achieved his chief reputation as a historian. The first of his works to meet with any success was The History of America, from the First Discovery by Columbus to the Conclusion of the Late War, which was completed in 1779. In the same year he issued, anonymously, the first two volumes of his History of Modern Europe, in a Series of Letters from a Nobleman to his Son. Three further volumes, with the author's name, appeared in 1784, and the whole work was published in five volumes in 1786. His History of Ancient Europe, with a View of the Revolutions in Asia and Africa (1793) was a fragment, and had indifferent success. DNBCondition: In decorative full calf bindings. Externally generally sound althougha trifle rubbed, two joints just starting, backstrip of volume VII coming away slightly at the head of the spine. Internally, firmly bound. Bright and generally clean, just a few scattered spots, heavier spotting to first and last few pages of each volume including titles. Ink signatures to front blanks.

        Twenty Four Subjects Exhibiting the Costume of Paris,

      London: Published by Rodwell and Martin, 1822. - A Tall Copy and RareWith the Lithographic Title-Page[CHALON, John James, illustrator]. Twenty Four Subjects Exhibiting the Costume of Paris, The Incidents taken from Nature, Designed and Drawn on Stone by J.J. Chalon. London: Published by Rodwell and Martin, 1822.First edition. Large folio (17 5/16 x 12 inches; 440 x 305 mm.). Lithographed title and twenty-four hand-colored lithographed plates. Plates printed by C. Hullmandel. The text is watermarked 1821 and the plates are watermarked J. Whatman 1817-1822.Contemporary black pebble-grain cloth expertly re-backed, re-cornered, and re-labled in black straight grain morocco to early nineteenth century style. With the contemporary bookplate of Laurence Currie. The twelfth plate "La Loueuse de Chaises" has a very small marginal paper flaw which is outside of the plate mark. Otherwise a most attractive, remarkably clean and vivid copy.The plates are captioned: "La Marchande de Tisanne;" "Les Bonnes;" "La Petite Fruitiere;" "La Dame du Café;" "Le Café;" "Les Tondeuses de Chiens;" "Les Brodeuses;" "L&#146;Escamoteur;" "La Porte Cochère;" "Le Journal des Débats;" "Le Restaurant;" "La Loueuse de Chaises;" "Une Matinée aux Thuilleries;" "Le Marchand de Brioches;" "Le Porteur d&#146;Eau;" "Le Petit Décrotteur;" "Le Marche aux Fleurs;" "La Prise de Tabac;" "Les Adieux;" "Les Dames de la Halle;" "Le Cimetiere du Pere la Chaise;" "Les Dames Artistes;" "La Charette du Blanchisseur;" and "La Marchande de Modes.""According to Beraldi (XII, 232) this &#145;very curious and rare album&#146; appeared as a small quarto in London. These plates, which are large folio in size, may represent a French issue of the work, though the English edition had captions in French. Jean-Jacques Chalon was a French artist born in Switzerland who eventually settled in England. His designs are by no means mere costume plates. Instead they are animated and faithful studies of Parisian manners and costumes in the years 1820 to 1822. There is hardly a touch of caricature, though the profiles of his personages have a family likeness which suggests a domesticated Girodet" (Ray)."Published in four parts. The plates show people of various occupations, shoeblacks, venders, politicians, and general scenes, etc" (Hiler).This copy is unusually tall: Abbey's copy measured 15 x 11 1/4 inches uncut, and lacked the lithographed title-page, as did Sadleir's (though Sadleir's copy was slightly larger than the copy under notice).Only four copies with the lithographed title-page have come to auction within last 31 years. Five copies only located in KVK/OCLC but the presence of the title page is not noted. Quite rare.Abbey, Travel, 108. Colas 588. Hiler, p. 156. Lipperheide 1185.

        Pl. 42 Le Kaire: Vue de la Place Ezbekyeh; cote de l'ouest et du nord-ouest from Description de l'Egypt ou Recueil des observations qui ont été faites pendant l'expédition de l'armée française

      Paris 1822 - Edme-François Jomard Published by Louis-Fleury Panckoucke Second Edition: Paris, 1822. Hand-colored copperplate engraving 26.5" x 39" While Napoleon Bonaparte&#146;s Egyptian military campaign was an unmitigated disaster, for the scientists, artists and historians who accompanied him it was an unqualified success. His invasion was designed to halt Great Britiain&#146;s land trade route to India, thus striking a fatal blow to its economy and allowing Napoleon the opportunity to conquer the Indian sub-continent. As he stated in his memoirs: &#147;Europe presents no field for glorious exploits; no great empires or revolutions are to be found, but in the East where there are six hundred million men . . . My glory is declining. This little corner of Europe is too small to supply it. We must go East. All the great men of the world have there acquired their celebrity.&#148; He planned to be a new Alexander the Great, bringing glory to France and, more importantly, to himself. In July 1798, 400 French transport ships landed 34,000 troops and approximately 1,000 civilians near Alexandria. The former were to spend three miserable years fighting the British with only one third of them surviving the grueling conditions. Indeed, Napoleon abandoned his army only one year into the campaign to return to France and stage a coup d&#146;etat which eventually crowned him Emperor. The civilians who had arrived with them were to fair rather better than their military compatriots. They were the scholars whose work was to eventually fill the pages of the twenty-two volume tome Description de l&#146;Egypt which was to remain the authoritative guide to Egyptology for several decades. The Institut d&#146;Egypte in Cairo was founded by Napoleon on August 22, 1798 and was modeled after the Institut de France. It was the umbrella for an encyclopedic number of research fields and was crucial to the organization of information in the Description de l&#146;Egypt. These disciplines included archeology, botany, natural history and cartography and in each case required not only a retinue of scientists but also of artists who pictorially described Egypt. Their illustrations filled twelve volumes of the Description de l&#146;Egypt comprising 925 plates in all and first published between 1809 and 1826 under the editorship of Edme-François Jomard. It was dedicated to Napoleon Bonaparte and the artists employed were amongst France&#146;s finest. The painter André Dutertre, and archaelogist and historian Dominique Vivant Denon, contributed substantially to the section on literature and the arts, while Henri-Joseph Redouté, the brother of Pierre-Joseph, devoted himself to natural history. Upon his return to Paris, Henri-Joseph was also to make botanical studies to illustrate the work of Etienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire and Alire Raffeneau-Delile on the flora and fauna of the Nile Valley. His brother Pierre-Joseph and the famed artist Jacques Barraband had not taken part in the expedition but did provide illustrations for the Description de l&#146;Egypt. Thus, this monumental work was the culmination of many years of study and dedication by France&#146;s leading scientists and artists. It was a ground-breaking study for its time and remains an important milestone in the study of Egypt and its treasures.

        Vue d'Une Pagode du Havre Offak

      Paris: 1822-25 - Louis-Isidore Duperrey (1786-1865) View from Voyage autour du Monde Historie du Voyage Paris: 1822-25 Hand-colored engravings 12 ¾" x 9 ½"; 22" x 18 ½" framed The only other Europeans besides the English to play a significant part in mapping the Pacific including New Zealand's coastline and were the French. From 1800 to 1840, there were ten major French voyages to Australia and the Pacific. The main purpose of these was scientific, however there was also an unspoken goal of discovering where France might carve out an empire of her own in the South Pacific. In addition to the vast collections of specimens and scientific data that were brought back, these voyages were distinguished by the publication of the most sumptuous collections of engravings noting not only the native plants and animals, but also the geography of the land and nature of its inhabitants. Scientists, artists and engravers-attached to the Museum National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris were paid by the French Government and worked over many years to produce these extraordinary documentations of each voyage. Of great note is the expedition lead by Lois-Isidore Duperrey on the vessel named Coquille which left Toulon August 11, 1822 and arrived in Marseilles on March 24, 1825. Duperrey joined the navy in 1802, and served as marine hydrologist to Louis Claude de Saulces de Freycinet aboard the Uranie (1817-1820), a previous expedition that had earned Duperrey praise and granted him the opportunity to command his own ship on what would become one of the greatest French expeditions to the Pacific. Duperrey proceeded to the Pacific by way of Brazil and Cape Horn. Stops were made along the coats of Chile and Peru, and in the Society, Gilbert , Marshall and Caroline islands. Other islands visited included the Tuamoto, Archipelago, Tahiti, Tonga and Rotuma. The expedition also made important exploratory visits to Australia, New Guinea and New Zealand, where the Maoris were visited. The entire voyage took almost three years. By far the greatest contributions of the expedition were scientific, cartographic, and ethnographic. 1200 Insects, 288 fishes, 264 birds, 63 reptiles and quantities of plants were collected and beautifully described and reproduced in the exquisitly colored plates of the several atlases of Voyage autour du Monde. Recordings were made on Polynesian languages, costumes, weapons and religious artifcats. Duperrey is given credit for discovering the Caroline and Gilbert islands, and for correcting errors in earlier charts of the Society Islands. Duperrey's also continued to explore the French interest in Tahiti and the Society Islands, which culminated in their annexation by France. His expedition also proved to be a catalyst for French missionary endeavors in the South Pacific to contest with Protestant Englishmen. His explorations of Australia and New Zealand were less significant politically, since the British opposed any French settlement there. Nonetheless, this largely scientific endeavor opened the door to a much more aggressive French policy in the South Pacific.

        Armes et ustensiles de Californie, PL. VIII

      Paris 1822 - Louis (or Ludovik) Choris (1795-1828), a Russian of German extraction, showed a talent for natural history at a remarkably early age, and won high praise for his work on Biberstein&#146;s journey to the Caucasus in 1813. Choris published his work, &#147;Voyage Pittoresque Autour du Monde &#148; in 1822 and recall the voyage of the brig Rurik from 1815 to 1818, commanded by the Russian Otto von Kotzbue, and the expedition&#146;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. Petersburg Academy to accompany Kotzbue and the present work represents a fine cross section of the places that the expedition visited. Choris&#146;s 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. This expertly hand-colored lithograph from Choris&#146;s &#147;Voyage Pittoresque Autour du Monde ,&#148; Armes et ustensiles de Californie, PL. VIII, measures 10.25&#148; x 16&#148; and is in excellent condition with a few light stain marks. Illustrated in this lithograph are weapons and utensils used by California natives for hunting and gathering, when discovered in the 1800's. The pieces include a bow, arrows held together within the carcass of an animal, and woven decorative baskets and bowls.

        Petit Careme de Massillon

      Paris - Chez Dalibon, Libraire, 1822 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Handsome full red leather binding with gilt and blind tooled detail to spine and boards. Includes portrait frontispiece. In French!Jean Baptiste Massillon (June 24, 1663 - September 28, 1742) was a French churchman and preacher, Bishop of Clermont from 1717 until his death. His popularity was probably due to the fact that in his sermons he lays little stress on dogmatic questions, but treats generally of moral subjects, in which the secrets of the human heart and the processes of man&#39;s reason are described with poetical feeling. He has usually been contrasted with his predecessor Bourdaloue, the latter having the credit of vigorous denunciation, Massillon that of gentle persuasiveness. Besides the Petit Carme, a sermon which he delivered before the young king Louis XV in 1718, his sermons on the Prodigal Son, on the small number of the elect, on death, for Christmas Day, and for the Fourth Sunday in Advent, may be perhaps cited as his masterpieces. His funeral oration on King Louis XIV is only noted now for the opening sentence: Dieu seul est grand. But in truth Massillon is singularly free from inequality. His great literary power, his reputation for benevolence, and his known toleration and dislike of doctrinal disputes caused him to be much more favourably regarded than most churchmen by the philosophes of the 18th century. Condition: The binding is tight and firm and both covers are attached. The outer hinges are very slightly starting to crack but holding firm. There is some minor wear to the extremities including some rubbing to the edges and bumping to the corners. Internally the bookis generally clean and bright apart from staining ot the first and last few pages, including the frontispiece and title page and some occasional spots in the main text. There is aprivate library plate to the front pastedown for the colleges of St Peter and paul, Prior Park, Bath..

S'inscrivant dans le cycle carolingien comme un lointain descendant de la Chanson de Roland (ou Chanson de Roncevaux) et présenté, à sa sortie, comme une suite de l'Orlando Innamorato (Roland amoureux) de Matteo Maria Boiardo. Le poème fut écrit en ferrarais, le dialecte utilisé à Ferrare, puis l'Arioste lui-même l'adapta en toscan littéraire, afin qu'il soit plus accessible pour le reste de l'Italie. Roger et Bradamante y sont présentés comme les ancêtres légendaires des ducs de Ferrare, et donc du cardinal Alphonse d'Este qui était le protecteur de l'Arioste et sans doute le commanditaire du livre.

        MEMORIA SOBRE LAS PROPORCIONES NATURALES DE LAS PROVINCIAS INTERNAS OCCIDENTALES, CAUSAS DE QUE HAN PROVENIDO SUS ATRASOS, PROVIDENCIAS TOMADAS CON EL FIN DE LOGRAR SU REMEDIO, Y LAS QUE POR AHORA SE CONSIDERAN OPORTUNAS PARA MEJORAR SU ESTADO, E IR PROPORCIONANDO SU FUTURA FELICIDAD

      [Mexico City]: D. José Maria Ramos Palomera, 1822.. 62pp. Small quarto. Modern speckled calf, red gilt morocco label. Old ink stain on titlepage, not affecting text; two small worm holes, each about typeface size throughout. Else near fine. On April 11, 1822 the last Spanish flag flying in Mexican territory was removed from the plaza at Monterey. Iturbide&#39;s declaration of independence, and the subsequent bloodless transfer of power, left the new government in Mexico in dire need of information regarding the various regions of the new nation. The present book, submitted to the administrative authorities in Mexico City on July 1, 1822, only two months after independence, attempts to communicate such information as was needed to govern the western provinces, most notably Sonora and New Mexico. It contains far-reaching recommendations on how to administer the region politically, militarily, and economically. The report begins with a description of the provinces and their capitals, including Santa Fe. The essential recommendation is for greater local control over the regions. Riezgo proposes that the military chiefs live within the provinces under their jurisdiction, and that they have wide discretionary powers within the limits of the constitution. Locations for regional governmental centers are suggested, and recommendations are made for increased military fortifications. Riezgo discusses the trade between Santa Fe and St. Louis, recommends that New Mexico be exempt from taxes on trade for a period of five years, and assesses the threat to trade posed by Comanche raids. He also makes suggestions concerning the role of the clergy in the region, and reforms in the educational system. "An extremely rare work in full description of the regions at the time of Independence, with much on the natural resources, settlements, Indians, future possibilities, etc." - Eberstadt. We cannot trace another copy of this work in the marketplace. It contains more detailed information than the more famous accounts of Pino and Escuerdo, one published a decade before, the other published a decade after, this work. Neither Thomas W. Streeter nor Everett D. Graff were able to secure a copy of this report. A wide-ranging early Mexican administrative report, and an exceptional southwestern rarity. EBERSTADT 138:514. HOWES R287, "b."
