        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'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..

        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'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.

        Ours marins dans l'ile de S. Paul, Pl. XV (Sea Lions on the Island of St. Paul)

      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 good condition, some minor foxing. Sheet size: 10” x 16 1/4” This view of sea lions on the island of St. Paul, one of the Pribilof Islands, a group of four Alaskan volcanic islands located in the Bering Sea between the United States and Russia, 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.

        TRAVELS IN THE INTERIOR OF SOUTHERN AFRICA

      London: Longman, Hurst, Reese, Orme, and Brown, 1822; 1824. 2 volumes. Rare First edition, and a set with fine provenance. Extensively illustrated with 10 very fine hand-coloured plates, 3 of which are large folding panoramic vignettes, 50 engraved vignettes and a huge folding map in the first volume, 10 hand-coloured plates, 2 of which are folding panoramas, and 46 engraved vignettes in the second, a total of 20 hand-coloured plates. 4to, in handsome full polished calf of the period, the boards with central gilt tools of famed banker and antiquarian Hudson Gurney (1775-1864) and double gilt fillet lines at the borders, the spine featuring elaborately gilt tooled panel designs within the compartments, elaborately gilt borders and central ornamental tools, the raised bands gilt, two red morocco labels lettered and ruled in gilt, end-leaves renewed, board edges gilt rolled, turn-ins stippled in blind. [xii], 582, 4; [iv], 648. A very handsome and desirable set, the paper quite fresh with only a hint of minor and very occasional foxing, the colourplates fresh and bright, the very large folding map in pleasing condition, the bindings handsome and in good order and with minor aging, the hinges sometime strengthened and restored incorporating the original spine panels. "The 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... The illustrations in the volumes are characterized by great beauty and accuracy... The work is now extremely scarce, many copies having been broken up in the middle of the nineteenth century for the plates." - Mendelssohn. This copy includes the &#147;Hints to Emigration&#148;, which is bound in the end of Volume I. The location of this separately printed addition varies and is listed differently in the Abbey copy, British Museum copy and Tooley copy and does not have the half titles. Our copy is matching the Abbey copy. This copy has the half-page errata slip at the beginning of Volume I, which is not found in all copies.<br> William Burchell travelled in South Africa between 1810 and 1815 making one of the greatest scientific explorations of his day. He collected over 50,000 specimens, and covered over 7000 km, much of which was over completely unexplored terrain. The description of his journey, Travels in the Interior of Southern Africa, appeared in 1822 and 1824 and is now highly prized and of great scarcity. There is little doubt that a third volume was planned, since the second volume ends long before completion of his journey.<br> On 25 August 1815 he sailed from Cape Town with 48 crates of specimens aboard the vessel "Kate", calling at St. Helena and arriving back at Fulham on 11 November 1815. He traveled in Brazil between 1825 and 1830, again collecting a large number of specimens, including over 20,000 insects. The journals covering his Brazil expedition are missing, as are his diaries relating to his later travels. His field note books, detailing his plant collections, survive at Kew, and from those the latter part of his trip can be reconstructed.<br> His collection of plants, skins, skeletons, insects, seeds, bulbs and fish is considered to be the most extensive ever made in Africa, before or since. After his death by suicide, the bulk of his plant specimens went to Kew and the insects to Oxford University Museum. He is known for the copious and accurate notes he made to accompany every collected specimen, detailing habit and habitat, as well as the numerous drawings and paintings of landscapes, portraits, costumes, people, animals and plants.

Overall, a very good, tight and clean copy. In 1805, naturalist and explorer William J. Burchell "was appointed by the East India Company &#145;schoolmaster and acting botanist&#146; 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 governor&#146;s 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 drawings" (Prideaux). "The 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.

Generally speaking, Burchell appears to have been favourably impressed by the Boers.The author&#146;s name is perpetuated in the country by the appellation of &#145;Burchell&#146;s Zebra&#146; (equus burchelli), a species of quagga discovered by him &#145;in 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, &#145;in order to ensure greater correctness in the vignettes, the author has made all these drawings upon the blocks themselves&#146;; 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 plates" (Mendelssohn). Abbey, Travel, 327.

The illustrations in the volumes are characterized by great beauty and accuracy, and it is stated in the Preface that, &#145;in order to ensure greater correctness in the vignettes, the author has made all these drawings upon the blocks themselves&#146;; 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 plates." (Mendelssohn) Some of the panoramic views were executed on the then practically unknown principle of scenographic projection on the surface of a revolving cylinder. The work covers Burchell's explorations in 1811 and 1812. A third volume relating his travels from 1812 to 1815 was projected but never published. In all Burchell claimed that his African collections consisted of 63,000 natural objects, 500 drawings, and a mass of astronomical, meteorological, and other observations and notes. A selection of his specimens were presented to the British museum following his return and are now in South Kensington. Abbey, Travel, 327. Mendelssohn I p. 224. Prideaux pp. 239 & 329. Tooley 116.

The first Jesuits' edition was published in Geneva in 1739-1742 and the second in 1760. These so-called Jesuits' editions (so-called because the editors were really Minims) are valued because of their copious commentary, and also because they contain additional works by Bernoully, Maclarin, and Euler which represent all that was done on the theory of tides between the publication of Newton's Principia and the investigations of Laplace.

        Advertisement for T. Cotterell & Co., Chronometer Makers, announcing an award granted by the Board of Admiralty to Cotterell for its performance at the Public Trials, Royal Observatory, Greenwich.

      London: 1822 - Ca. 1822. The advertisement for the London chronometer makers reads: "The Honorable Board of Admiralty Awarded T. Cotterell & Co. a Prize of 200 Pounds for the Extraordinary Accuracy of the Performance of their Chronometer, the actual Variation on its Rate in 12 Months being only 70 Hundredth Parts of a Second". It goes on to say that the Admiralty purchased several of the chronometers "for their superior performance on the Public Trials at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich. . Cotterell have also been liberally encouraged by the Swedish Government, And by many Scientific Navigators". Chronometers at the time played a critical role in navigation at sea, having been recently introduced as the best method to determine exact longitude. Chronometers made by Kendall were used as early as the 1770's in Captain Cook's expeditions; and by Capt. John Ross in expeditions to the Arctic. Another Kendall chronometer was used by Lieutenant Matthew Flinders in expedition to Australia in 1801. The Public Trials referred to in this advertisement commenced in 1820. By 1850 reliable and inexpensive marine chronometers were widely available and replaced the lunar distance method of measuring longitude. 5 3/4 x 5 1/2". Text in black on white paper; paper toned, edges slightly ruffled, o/w very good.

        Print of The Trial of "Bill Burn," Under Martin's Act

      P. Mathews, London 1822 - A donkey serves as a witness in a British court in this satirical scenario of the prosecution of his owner under the landmark Martin's Act, a statute enacted in Britain the year this print was made, to protect animals from abuse. Sponsored by Member of Parliament Richard Martin of Galway (1754-1834), the law focused on farm animals such as cattle, horses and sheep, making it an offense for anyone--even the owner--to abuse, beat or mistreat these animals. Initially, advocates against animal cruelty had difficulty enforcing the law, as magistrates were reluctant to convict offenders. In this picture, the donkey is in the courtroom, relieved of its burden of baskets of produce, which are on the floor, while the owner thumbs his nose. The name of "Bill Burn," given to the donkey's owner in this print, appears to be a joke on what the satirist sees as the fate of Martin's "bill"; the presence of the donkey suggests the law is viewed by many as being asinine. Generally very good with the usual light toning, soiling, wear, soft creases. Small bit of adhered paper residue in the top right corner, a very faint, small water stain in the extreme right margin and light soiling in the margins. To see details, contact us.

        VOYAGE PITTORESQUE EN SICILE

      P. Didot, l'Ainé [second volume: Jules Didot Ainé], Paris 1822 - One of the Most Beautiful Color-Plate BooksOf Italian Scenes Ever Printed. 641 x 495 mm (25 1/4 x 19 1/2"). Lacking the dedication leaf and subscriber list present in the Abbey copy. Two volumes. Edited by Jean Frédéric d'Ostervald. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary red straight-grain morocco, textured paper boards, gilt titling on spine, edges untrimmed. One map (as called for, though the Abbey copy has two), and 92 ACCOMPLISHED AND BEAUTIFULLY HAND-COLORED AQUATINT PLATES OF SICILIAN VIEWS. Abbey "Travel" I, 262; Graesse VI, 400; Brunet V, 1379. Moderate rubbing to joints and elsewhere, covers with some scars, other minor problems externally, but the original bindings entirely solid--and surprisingly so for such an immense book with so many fabulous pictures to look at. Preliminary leaves and text lightly to substantially foxed, a half dozen plates with faint overall browning, one tissue guard missing, the margins of perhaps half the engravings with foxing (usually light, though noticeable in three or four cases in the second volume), but still a very pleasing copy of a beautifully illustrated book, the marginal foxing seldom distracting, and the engraved images themselves clear and clean, afflicted by neither foxing nor the dreaded offsetting from the text. This is an extraordinarily rare copy of one of the most beautiful color-plate travel books having to do with Italy. The large and luminous views of Sicily in our two volumes capture the magic of the island as experienced by the traveller of the early 19th century. Sicily's well-preserved Greek temples are, of course, featured, but port scenes, Medieval churches, picturesque villages, and the interior of Etna's crater are also depicted, all in exquisite color. The engravings, each accompanied by letter press explanations, are of great interest and beauty, and all but one of them are full-blooded tableaux, rather than plans or assemblages of small images. The size of the engraved surface varies on the page, as does the distance of the subject from the viewer: we are treated to everything from wide panoramic views to confining inner spaces. While the colors cannot be called pastel, they are far from garish, with lovely grays typically giving a softness to a scene that often employs subtle shades of yellow, blue, and green. The plates are memorable for their use of light and shadow to give a convincing feeling of three-dimensionality amidst luminous skies, darkened interiors, and a number of other variably lit settings. The book was originally published in 24 parts, and includes an historical précis by Gigault de La Salle giving an overview of events from antiquity to his own time. Abbey calls the work "the most ambitious of the coloured aquatint books edited by J. F. d'Ostervald," who produced a number of works on the picturesque, including two famous oversized editions focusing on regions in France. The book has always commanded a premium price: the unbound sheets were sold at the time of publication for the whopping sum of £34. In his note to the reader, Ostervald tells of his search among the portfolios of the artists of Switzerland, Germany, and England for the perfect materials for this collection. The plates cite the names of the artist and engraver, and Abbey notes that "English artists or engravers were responsible for nearly half" of the plates. Among these was Richard Parkes Bonington (1802-28), the tragically short-lived painter whose romantic works were greatly admired by Delacroix. Abbey estimates that about 500 copies of the book were produced, and comments that the book is "certainly rare, in this country at all events, only three copies being reported at auction in the last fifty years." The rarity of the book has, not surprisingly, increased since Abbey's remark: ABPC lists only three other copies at auction from 1975 to the present--two of them involving one volume only, the other involving both volumes, but with uncolored plates.

        Guillemot a Miroir Blanc

      - A detailed hand colored lithographic print from Louis Choris&#146;s sweeping series &#147;Voyage Pittoresque Autour du Monde&#148;, published in Paris by Firmin Didot in 1822. This print measures 16.5&#148;x10&#148;. 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&#146;s journey to the Caucasus in 1813. The present views recall the voyage of the &#147;Rurik,&#148; 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, and tape marks in margins.

Aubry), marge des premiers feuillets brunis, sinon intérieur en très bon état. Deuxième édition, considérablement augmentée (la première, parue en 1818 sous le titre "Considérations sur les bandages herniaires" ne comportait qu'un seul volume de XII-106 pp. et 14 ff. de planches). Cet ouvrage décrit de nombreux bandages, certains inventés par l'auteur ; Jalade Lafond améliora le bandage de Camper. De plus et surtout, le second volume est entièrement consacré aux anus contre nature, et à "la belle découverte" de Dupuytren. L'en-tête de cette seconde partie s'intitule d'ailleurs "Considérations sur les anus contre nature". Jalade Lafond relate pour la première fois cette opération de l'anus artificiel réalisé par Dupuytren, avec la description de l'instrument utilisé (entérotome). Jalade-Lafond écrit : "J'ai l'avantage d'être le premier à écrire sur cette opération'. Il rapporte dix observations recueillies dans le service de ce grand chirurgien, à l'Hôtel-Dieu de Paris. Le mémoire de Dupuytren sur cette intervention ne paraîtra qu'en 1828 (cf. Garrison & Morton, 3437) ; Dupuytren y cite le livre Jalade Lafond parmi les quelques "excellens ouvrages" ayant rapporté cette intervention. Les 24 planches illustrent des instruments, des bandages et des appareils; cinq d'entre elles représentent l'entérotome et l'intervention de Dupuytren. Guillaume Jalade-Lafond, après des études de médecine à Paris, devint un chirurgien-herniaire et un bandagiste réputés. Il fut très apprécié de Dupuytren. cf. R.

FOUND AUTHOR: Gardiner, Marguerite, Countess of Blessington Gardiner, Marguerite, Countess of Blessington (1789-1849) Novelist, Poet, Story Writer, Biographer, Editor, Travel Writer, Letter Writer, Essayist. Active 1822-1849 in England, Britain, Ireland, Europe; Italy, France, Continental Europe Marguerite Gardiner, Countess of Blessington, famous for her beauty, notorious for her supposedly scandalous life, was at the centre of London literary life for more than thirty years. The friend of Byron, Dickens, Bulwer-Lytton, Thackeray and Disraeli among others, she presided over a series of glittering salons and corresponded indefatigably with many of the best-known writers of the day. She was also a writer of novels, poems, short stories and travel books, and edited several successful annuals and gift-books. Born - as Margaret Power - in the small village of Knockbrit in County Tipperary, Ireland, she was the eldest daughter of an impoverished Irish squire and his well-born wife. A shy, and not overly attractive child, she was educated by a lady well-wisher and by a course of self-imposed reading. By her early teens she had become a beauty, and when she was fourteen her father forced her into an arranged marriage to Captain Maurice St Leger Farmer. Her husband proved to be an abusive alcoholic and she returned home after only a few months. Her next few years are not well documented, but from about 1806 she lived in Hampshire as the kept mistress of a landed Englishman, Captain Thomas Jenkins. In 1815 she met the wealthy earl of Blessington, who reputedly paid £10,000 to Jenkins for the transfer of her favours to himself. Blessington set about trying to obtain a divorce for her, but this proved to be unnecessary, as in 1817 her husband died after falling from a window, and the couple were able to marry. They spent the next few years living in the greatest of luxury in London: politicians, peers, writers and painters flocked to their house in St James's Square. Her reputation had preceded her, however, and respectable ladies neither called on her nor invited her to their homes. In 1822 she published two slim volumes of essays of mild satire and social comment, The Magic Lantern and Sketches and Fragments, and a travel book, Journal of a Tour through the Netherlands to Paris. In 1823 the Blessingtons set out for a protracted tour of the continent, on which they were joined by Alfred, Count d'Orsay. At just twenty-one, he was twelve years younger than the countess, whose lover he was generally believed to be. Arriving in Genoa, in Italy, they called on Byron and spent six weeks riding, dining and conversing with the poet. They spent five years in Italy, during which time d'Orsay contracted a marriage with the Earl's sixteen-year-old daughter, Lady Harriet Gardiner.

        Queen Mab

      London: Printed and Published by R. Carlile, 55, Fleet Street, 1822 - The is the first published edition of Shelley's first poem of any length. It was privately printed in 1813 in a very small edition, and originally contained a poetical dedication to Harriet which Shelley was in the habit of cutting out in copies he gave to friends. Much to Shelley's consternation, this edition was printed by Clark without the poet's authorisation (Clark spent 4 months in prison for it), and, according to Granniss 'some copies contain the dedication to Harriet (his first wife who had committed suicide in 1816), and in some, certain words and lines have been omitted." According to Graniss, "Clark's sheets fell into the hands of Carlile who issued them both in the original and mutilated forms, in 1822 ." First English published edition; second issue with Carlile cancel title; first printed privately in 1813, and then published in a pirated edition by R. Clark in 1821, for which Clark subsequently received four months' imprisonment.

        Guillemof a Ligne Blanche

      - A detailed hand colored lithographic print from Louis Choris&#146;s sweeping series &#147;Voyage Pittoresque Autour du Monde&#148;, published in Paris by Firmin Didot in 1822. This print measures 16.5&#148;x10&#148;. 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&#146;s journey to the Caucasus in 1813. The present views recall the voyage of the &#147;Rurik,&#148; 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. Abbey Scenery 57 (1822 watermarks) and cf.55; Millard British 66 (2nd edition); cf. Tooley p.207; cf. Prideaux p.349. (21 7/8 x 13 3/4 inches). Emblematic frontispiece printed in bistre, 1 hand-coloured plan, 7 aquatint plates (one tinted with a sepia wash, six hand-coloured [one with an overpage, one double-page with two overslips, one folding with two overslips, one single-page with two overslips, one single-page with one overslip]), 11 aquatint illustrations (seven uncoloured, one with a sepia wash, three hand-coloured [two of these with a single overslip]), all by J.C. Stadler after Repton. Uncut. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
