        Guillemof a Ligne Blanche

      - A detailed hand colored lithographic print from Louis Choris’s sweeping series “Voyage Pittoresque Autour du Monde”, published in Paris by Firmin Didot in 1822. This print measures 16.5”x10”. Louis (or Ludovik) Choris, 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’s journey to the Caucasus in 1813. The present views recall 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: itincludes views of Teneriffe, Brazil, Chile, the Pacific Islands, Hawaii, Kamchatka, Philippines, the Cape of Good Hope and Saint Helena. Choris'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. The lithographs are of all aspects of native life and culture. Choris's book is considered to be one of the most beautiful relating to travel. A map of the route of expedition accompanies the work. The book was issued in 22 parts, and complete copies with all the plates colored are very rare. Overall this print is in good condition with some foxing and staining.

        Autograph letter signed to André Melly

      Geneva 1822 - Boissier, Henri (1762-1845). Autograph letter signed to André Melly (1802-51). Geneva, 21 March 1822. 2pp. plus integral address leaf. 202 x 155 mm. Docketed.From Professor Henri Boissier, founder of Geneva's natural history museum, to the young Swiss businessman André Melly, acting as the museum's purchasing agent in England, regarding the purchase of insect specimens for the museum. Boissier informs Melly that the museum's collections have recently been augmented "par un don de coléopteres de M. le Dr. Peschier où il y a de bonnes choses, & par un achast de quelques bons papillons & insectes exotiques que m'a procuré M. Prévost" [by a gift of coleoptera from Dr. Peschier containing some good things, and by a purchase of several good butterflies and foreign insects from M. Prévost].This last purchase "a un peu réduit la somme que la cours avait mit à ma disposition. Je ne peut donc vous faire payer pour le moment qu'un bon de f. 400 que je vous prie d'employer, comme vous le jugerai convenable, surtout en orthoptères, hémiptères & névroptères dont nous sommes très mal fournis" [has reduced somewhat the amount made available to me from the course. At this moment I can only pay you the sum of 400 francs which I urge you to use, as you see fit, primarily for orthoptera, hemiptera and neuroptera, which we greatly lack]. Boissier lists several species of each that he wishes to acquire, including "criquets & sauter[elles] exotiq[ues]" [foreign crickets and grasshoppers] and "termites ou fourmis blanches" [termites or white ants]. He instructs Melly to expedite the shipment of insects to him so that he will have enough time to unpack them and put them in cases."Dr. Peschier" may refer to Geneva native Charles Gaspard Peschier (1782-1853), a pioneer of homeopathic medicine in French-speaking countries. M. Prévost, another Genevan, was a founder of the firm of Prévost and Morris in London. Boissier's correspondent, André Melly, ended up settling in England in 1822 (the year that this letter was written), and becoming a prominent businessman in northern England. He acted as agent to the Viceroy of India and then to the Egyptian Government, dying of fever while on a tour of the Nile in 1851.

        Symptoms of Being Amused Vol. 1 [all that was published]

      Thomas McLean, London 1822 - 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 Half Morocco over Marbled Boards [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Designs for the Pavillon [sic.] at Brighton. Humbly inscribed to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. By H. Repton . with the assistance of his sons, John Adey Repton, F.S.A. and G.S. Repton, architects

      printed by Howlett & Brimmer for J. C. Stadler, sold by Boydell & Co., Longman, Hurst, Rees & Orme, [etc.], London 1822 - Expertly bound to style in full green straight-grained morocco, covers with a wide decorative border tooled in gilt and blind, spine in eight compartments with double raised bands, the bands highlighted in gilt, lettered in the second compartment, the others with an overall repeat decoration in gilt, brown endpapers A fine, wide margined copy of Repton's fascinating proposal for a royal palace at Brighton. Humphry Repton was the main successor to Lancelot 'Capability' Brown as an improver of grounds for the English gentry in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. He was particularly noted for his Red Books. These were produced for each individual client and were made up from a manuscript description of his proposed improvements bound with Repton's own watercolour drawings of the grounds, with his proposed alterations displayed on an overlay. His proposal for Brighton pavilion was no different and the present work "was based directly on the original Red Book, which was sent to the publisher and engraver, J.C. Stadler, of 15 Villiers St., Strand. The drawings, by Repton and his sons, were sumptuously reproduced in aquatint, mostly in color, complete with their overslips and slides. Stadler himself took on the financial responsibility" (Millard, British p. 245). "Repton was first summoned to Brighton by the Prince of Wales in 1797. Payments were made to him over the next five years for works in the garden of the Prince's still modest marine villa. Then, in October 1805, Repton was requested to attend on the Prince in Brighton. The Prince and Repton met on 24 November. By 12 December Repton had returned to Brighton with a sheaf of drawings showing possible improvements. The prince was intrigued and asked for a design for an entirely new house. Repton presented his scheme in February 1806 in the form of [a]. Red book, now in the Royal Library at Windsor. By then the prince's initial enthusiasm had dulled; he was beset with financial difficulties and had laid aside all elaborate schemes for the enlargement of the pavilion" (Millard op.cit. pp.243-244). Repton's designs were inspired directly by the wonderful Indian architecture so ably pictured in Thomas and William Daniell's Oriental Scenery (1795-1808). First published in 1808, the present issue dates from 1822 and may mark an attempt to take advantage of the interest generated when architect John Nash completed his work on the Pavilion for King George IV. Between 1815 and 1822 Nash redesigned and greatly extended the Pavilion, and it is the work of Nash which can be seen today. The pavilion as it was finally completed still owed a huge debt to Indian architecture but was in a form which re-interpreted the Indian ideal in a fashion more suitable to both English tastes and climate.

        Memoria sobre a conspiração de 1817, vulgarmente chamada a conspiração de Gomes Freire; escripta e publicada por um Portuguez, amigo da justiça e da verdade.

      London, Impresso por Ricardo e Artur Taylor, 1822. - Wood-engraved frontispiece, 284 pp., (2 ll.), with 1 wood-engraved plate and diagrams in text. 8°, contemporary morocco (very slight wear), spine richly gilt with raised bands in five compartments, crimson leather lettering piece, gilt letter, edges of covers milled, marbled endleaves, text block edges marbled to match. Scattered light foxing. In fine condition. ---- FIRST EDITION; a second appeared in Lisbon, 1822, without the allegorical frontispiece. This is the fullest account of the 1817 conspiracy against Marshal Beresford and the Portuguese government, whose leader was Lieutenant-General Gomes Freire de Andrade, recognized soon thereafter as one of the martyrs of Portuguese liberty. The @Memoria was written at the request and the expense of Marshal Beresford, to justify the harsh measures he used to suppress the conspiracy, and it is biased in Beresford's favor; nevertheless, it contains invaluable details such as copies of the documents written by the conspirators to each other, and a transcription in full of the sentence passed upon them. The frontispiece is a wood engraving signed by Sears, showing a man with a sickle speaking to a woman who attacks a many-headed dragon (Treason?) with a sword; above is a winged figure holding flames (lightning bolts?) in either hand. The plate at p. 209 shows the execution of the conspirators. There are also tables and diagrams, e.g., one showing the code used by the conspirators for their correspondence.---- Innocêncio IV, 78-79: without collation, and calling for only 1 plate.

        A treatise on the game of chess: containing the games on odds, from the "Traite des Amateurs:" the games of the celebrated anonymous Modenese; a variety of games actually Played; and a cotalogue of writers on Chess

      Printed for T and J Allman, London 1822 - ix+[blank]+xiii-xv+[blank]+Errata leaf+376 pages with frontispiece and catalog of writers on the game of chess. Octavo (9" x 5 1/2") bound in half leather with gilt lettering to spine. (Whyld and Ravillious: 1822:6). First edition. John Cochrane (1798-1878), Scottish Master, did not achieve note as player who had big practical successes. Spending most of his life in India (1824-69), his clashes against top players occurred during 1841-42, while on vacation in London. Cochrane played on equal terms against George Walker (1803-1879), William Davies Evans (1790-1872), and others. He even managed to win a match (6-4) against the Frenchman Pierre Charles Fournier de Saint- Amant (1800-1872), though in a series of games against Howard Staunton (1810-1874) he was defeated convincingly. All his preserved games show a player totally committed to tactics, a player who liked to attack and sacrifice, sometimes beyond reasonable risk. Condition: Rebound in half red leather, some pencil notations through out else a very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Travels in Nubia; by the Late Published by the Association for Promoting the Discovery of the Interior Parts of Africa.

      London: John Murray, 1822 - Quarto (268 × 211 mm) Contemporary half calf on marbled boards,tan morocco label, flat bands, gilt milled, edges sprinkled blue, dark blue silk page-marker present and intact. Slightly rubbed, mild damping at the tail of the spine, front inner hinge cracked to the cords but tight, quadrant of damp-staining at the lower inner margins, text barely affected but the plates showing a slight tidemark, images barely touched, light browning to the text, a very good copy. Etched portrait frontispiece by Angelica Clarke after Slater, 3 engraved maps, one full-page and 2 folding. Second edition, first published in 1819. Burckhardt's travels were made under the aegis of the Association for Promoting the Discovery of the Interior Parts of Africa. He arrived in London in 1806, and after failing to obtain a diplomatic posting he approached Sir Joseph Banks, one of the chief supporters of the Association, with a letter of introduction from the natural historian Joseph Friedrich Blumenbach, under whom he had studied at Göttingen. He proposed, and was soon accepted to undertake exploration on their behalf, "particularly the search for the course of the Niger" (ODNB). Most of his journeys were made in the guise of Ibrahim ibn Abdallah, an Indian merchant and pilgrim to the holy places, under which name he was to be buried in the Muslim cemetery at Cairo in 1817. "Burckhardt possessed the best qualifications for a traveller. He prepared meticulously for his voyages, obeying his maxim 'Eile mit Weile' - 'more haste less speed' - even when this made it seem to contemporaries that he was slow and hesitant. Daring and yet prudent, a close and accurate observer with an intimate knowledge of the manners and language of the people among whom he travelled, he was able to accomplish feats of exploration which to others would have been impossible " This part of his explorations were made "in 1813 and 1814. Burckhardt left Aleppo in 1812 and made his way to Cairo; he then carried out two journeys: one along the upper Nile and the other through the Nubian desert. These travels were edited from Burckhardt's journals by Leake; he also wrote the biographical memoir which is prefaced to the travels. This was the first of Burckhardt's works to be published " (Blackmer). Armorial bookplate of William Ramsay, professor of Humanity (Latin) at the University of Glasgow 1831-63, one of the foremost British classical scholars of the era.

        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 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'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.

"Carey and Lea's Atlas of 1822 carried a 'North America' on which, along with Pike's vagaries, is displayed Long's discovery of the true course of the Canadian, while Missouri Territory is carried west of the Rockies. The most interesting map in this Atlas, however, is headed 'Geographical, Statistical and Historical Map of Arkansas Territory,' which is in reality Long's map, covering the Missouri Basin north to Mandan villages and west to the Rockies. 'Highest Peak,' James Peak and Spanish Peaks appear, as on [Stephen H.] Long's manuscript map, and his expedition's routes are set forth. Just south of the Republican Fork appears the significant legend, 'The Great Desert is frequented by roving bands of Indians who have no fixed places of residence but road from place to place in quest of game.' In fact, in large part this map is Long's map, and is so stated in its title" (Wheat II, p.81). Howes C-133. Phillips 1373a.

        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 upside down. 8 pp. 4°, unbound. Uncut, partially unopened. In fine condition. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION, with the caption title apparently in its first 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. JCB, @Portuguese and Brazilian Books, 822/37 (giving the title as @O mundo de Pernambuco, almost surely a typo). Not in Innocêncio or Fonseca, @Pseudónimos. Not in Rodrigues. Not in Tancredo de Paiva. NUC: ICN, RPJCB. OCLC: 79082796 (Houghton Library, Newberry Library, British Library).

London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, 1822-1824.First edition. Two quarto volumes (10 11/16 x 8 3/8 inches; 270 x 214 mm.). [4], viii, [contents, lists of plates and vignettes], 582, 4, [2, blank]; [8], 648, [2, blank] pp. Bound without half-titles and final blank in first volume but with the 4 pp. ìHints on Emigration to the Cape of Good Hopeî (which was printed separately in 1824 and not found in all copies), and the half-page errata slip at the beginning of Volume I. Large folding engraved map, twenty hand-colored aquatint plates (five folding), and ninety-six wood-engraved vignettes (fifty in Volume I and forty-six in Volume II). Inscribed on the front blank by the author \"To his Niece Ruth Burchell/with the Authors kind love.\"Contemporary purple morocco, expertly rebacked to style over blue morocco. Covers with elaborately gilt panels, spines with gilt compartments and lettering, all edges gilt. Some offsetting from plates, map with some minor fold tears. ZZ4 of volume II with a one-inch tear to upper blank margin (not affecting any lettering). Hinges starting. With previous owner\'s bookplate on front pastedown of each volume. Overall, a very good, tight and clean copy.In 1805, naturalist and explorer William J. Burchell ìwas appointed by the East India Company ëschoolmaster and acting botanistí at the island of St Helena. While there he made the acquaintance of General Janssens, the last Dutch governor of the Cape, and of Dr Martin Lichtenstein, then a young physician on the governorís staff, and afterwards a celebrated Berlin naturalist. Furnished with letters of introduction from them to the chief Dutch and German residents, Burchell set off to the Cape with the intention of exploring the interior of South Africa. A party of Hottentots were his sole companions and assistants in more than three years of exploration, during which he made large collections of mammalia...He only published the first part of his Travels in the Interior of Southern Africa (1822-24), a book written in excelent style and illustrated from his own drawingsî (Prideaux).ìThe most valuable and accurate work on South Africa published up to the first quarter of the nineteenth century, and embracing a description of a large part of the Cape Colony and Bechuanaland at this period. Theal (ëHistory of South Africa, 1795-1834í) remarks that the author was ëa man of talent, an easy writer, and scrupulously exact in his descriptions,í and according to Sclater he was ëa most skilful and well-trained zoologist and botanist, and his observations are all accurate and methodical.í Burchell penetrated as far as ëLattakooí (afterwards known as Kuruman), and during his explorations, which extended over a period of four years, made important collections of the fauna, flora, and curiosities of the country, together with a large number of drawings. Generally speaking, Burchell appears to have been favourably impressed by the Boers...The authorís name is perpetuated in the country by the appellation of ëBurchellís Zebraí (equus burchelli), a species of quagga discovered by him ëin the country immediately to the north of the Orange River...he was also the first to mention the existence of asbestos in this part of the country. The illustrations in the volumes are characterized by great beauty and accuracy, and it is stated in the Preface that, ëin order to ensure greater correctness in the vignettes, the author has made all these drawings upon the blocks themselvesí; the coloured plates are particularly admired, and the drawings from which they were engraved were prepared with great care by the artist, and were untouched by any other hand. The work is now extremely scarce, many copies having been broken up in the middle of the nineteenth century for the platesî (Mendelssohn).Abbey, Travel, 327. Mendelssohn I, p. 224.

        Applications de Geometrie et de Mechanique, 1822

      SCARCE 1822 FIRST EDITION of the work in which the mathematician Charles Dupin first introduced a nonspherical surface with the property that all its lines of curvature were circular. He called this surface a 'cyclide.' Recently, cyclides have been revived for use as surface patches in computer aided geometric design (CAGD), specialized military or aerospace applications, and surface modeling. According to the Dictionary of Scientific Biography, "In the Applications we find an elaboration of Monge's theory of deblais et remblais -- and, hence, of congruences of straight lines, with applications to geometrical optics. Here Dupin, improving on a theorem of Malus's (1807), stated that a normal congruence remains normal after reflection and refraction. He also gave a more complete theory of the cyclids as the envelopes of the spheres tangent to three given spheres and discussed floating bodies" (DSB, IV, 257). CONDITION & DETAILS: Paris: Bachelier Successeur Courcier. 4to. (10.25 x 8.25 inches, 256 x 206mm). [xxxv], 1, [336 pages], 17 plates. Illustration: 17 large fold-out copperplates. Exterior: Bound in half calf over scuffed and rubbed marbled paper boards. There is some chipping at the head and foot of the spine and at the edge tips, but nothing major. The binding is very tight and solid. Interior: Complete. Marbled endpapers. A very occasional and very light age spot. Very good condition throughout the interior by any measure.

The illustrations also capture perfectly the folkish, even naive, simplicity associated with Swiss culture at the time yet with elegance. There is, in other words, no crudeness or coarseness to the figures depicted. A most extraordinary achievement, comparable to the paintings of Lory of the same period.
