        The American Practical Lunarian, and Seaman's Guide?

      Robert Desilver, August, Philadelphia 1822 - Thick octavo, 15 plates (some folding), many tables and text illustrations, some scattered light foxing and browning as commonly found in American books of this date; a good copy in the original dark calf, spine label chipped, a few repairs to extremities. Freycinet's chart of the Uranie wreck at French Bay. First and only edition of this remarkable book, including the earliest published map based on the Freycinet voyage, an engraved sketch-map of French Bay marking where the Uranie ran aground. The map was based on a manuscript chart completed by Freycinet and copied for Captain Galvin of the Mercury, the ship leased by Freycinet for the return to France, and later purchased and renamed the Physicienne. The "Plan of Port Soledad or Berkley's Sound east end of Falkland Island" is rather well done, with a key noting the position of details including the 'Wreck of the French Corvette Urannei [sic]', the 'Sunken Rock which the Urannei struck on', and the 'Anchorage of the Mercury'. The presence of the Freycinet chart is due to Arnold's friendship with Captain John Galvin, who is listed here as one of the subscribers. Arnold notes: 'This chart was presented to the author in manuscript, by Captain John Galvin, of the ship Mercury, of Buenos Ayres, when he was in Philadelphia in 1821, a copy of which the author had engraved for this work. Captain Galvin procured it from the captain of the French corvette Uraneé [sic], which was at that time on a voyage of discovery, and was wrecked in this port, when Captain Galvin put in there in the Mercury in a leaky state, in 1820' (p. 263). Galvin had been running guns to rebels in Chile, but the Mercury had taken a beating in heavy seas, and pulled into the Falklands to refit. The French were already engaged in fruitless negotiations with a whaler called the General Knox, but Freycinet was relieved to be able to switch his attention to Galvin and the Mercury, negotiating their passage to Montevideo and, en route, arranging for the purchase of the vessel - a complicated bargain, but greatly preferred by Galvin's other passengers, a small group of fiery revolutionaries heading for the war in Chile. This work was published by the experienced mariner Thomas Arnold who had set up a Nautical Academy at 295 South Front Street on the river at Philadelphia (which he advertises here). A compendium of useful information similar in style to works such as Bowditch's Practical Navigator or Blunt's Shipmaster's Assistant, it is rich in practical notes on subjects as diverse as navigational instruction, natural history, astronomy, practical seamanship, gunnery, naval tactics and 'several sketches of trade not generally known' (including trade with the Ile de France, Bourbon and Batavia, to name just a few). The important section of sailing directions concentrates largely on Atlantic waters, as might be expected, and openly acknowledges its debt to Horsburgh's sailing directions of 1818 ('which is the latest and best extant'), with a few corrections from working sea-captains.

S. 311). - In den breiten Rändern nicht ganz frisch.. Friedrich Overbeck, der als einer der bedeutendsten Vertreter der Nazarener gilt, erhielt ab 1804 Unterricht durch den Lübecker Maler J.N. Peroux (1771-1849). 1806 ging er nach Wien, um an der dortigen Akademie zu studieren. Hier war er Mitbegründer des "Lukasbund", einer Gruppe von Künstlern, die die Erneuerung der Kunst im Geiste des Christentums nach Vorbildern alter deutscher und italienischer Kunst anstrebte. Unzufrieden mit dem Wiener Unterricht ging er gemeinsam mit seinen Künstlerfreunden Fr. Pforr (1788-1812) und L. Vogel (1788-1879) nach Rom. Hier lebte er gemeinsam mit gleichgesinnten Künstlern in klösterlicher Gemeinschaft in Sant'Isidoro und konvertierte zum Katholizismus. Durch die Beteiligung an der Ausmalung an der Casa Bartholdy, der Residenz des preußischen Gesandten, 1816/1817 konnte er seinen künstlerischen Ruhm begründen. In den nächsten Jahren lehnte er verschiedene Angebote, eine Professur an den Akademien in München oder Düsseldorf oder an der Städelschule in Frankfurt zu übernehmen, ab. Er blieb in Rom seßhaft, wo er hochverehrt von Freunden und zahlreichen Schülern im Alter von 80 Jahren verstarb.

Intended as an index to accompany a survey made in the years 1819 and 1820&#39;. Interesting armorial bookplate of Jospeh Bowstead Wilson to front pastedown. Christopher Greenwood (17861855), land surveyor and map maker. Trained to survey small estates and farms, Greenwood learned the techniques of triangulation and the use of instruments needed to survey areas the size of counties from the engineer and surveyor, Francis Giles, who supervised his local triangulation of Yorkshire. With only the Yorkshire map in print, he had determined to map the whole of the rest of England at one inch to one mile, and Wales at three-quarters of an inch to one mile. In 1822, with eleven counties already on sale, he advertised the complete scheme in detail: a set of forty-two maps comprising 184 sheets to cost 135 guineas. Greenwood was not the first private surveyor to embark on such a risky enterpriseas it turned out, six English counties and most of Wales were never surveyedbut he came far closer than any other map maker since his fellow Yorkshireman, Christopher Saxton, in the 1570s, to surveying all the English counties. His assistant in all his county maps was his younger brother John Greenwood (17911867), who had been working for him since before he left Gisburn. In fifteen years (181530) the brothers surveyed thirty-three English and four Welsh counties; the result is thirty-five maps at a scale of one inch to one mile or thereabouts (Yorkshire and south-east Wales at three-quarters of an inch to one mile, and Middlesex at 2 inches).

        The First Canto of Ricciardetto Translated from the Italian of Forteguerri: with an introduction, concerning the principal romantic, burlesque, and mock-heroic poets; and notes, critical and philological. By Sylvester (Douglas) Lord Glenbervie.

      London: John Murray. 1822 - FIRST AND ONLY EDITION of this translation. Large 8vo, 217 x 130 mms., pp. xxvii [xxviii blank], 232 [233 blank, 234 colophon], including half-title, engraved portrait frontispiece of Glenbervie, 2 other engraved portraits, and two other engraved plates, contemporary calf, gilt borders on covers, spine richly gilt, all edges gilt; lacks label; upper and lower portions of joints very slightly cracked, top and base of spine slightly chipped, lacks label, library stamp on title-page,but a good to very good copy, with the following presentation inscription on the top margin of the title-page: "To Lady Baynerig/ In testimony of the sincere/ regard and affection of/ the Author." Lord Glenbervie (1743 - 1823) has endeared himself to oenologists everywhere, with his first publication, an account of Tokay published in 1773 in Philosophical Transactions, after he visited Hungary. He distinguished himself otherwise as a politician and government minister, making oodles of money from various enterprises, including his marriage to Catherine Anne North (1760&#150;1817), to whom he had been introduced by Lord Sheffield, and who was the eldest daughter of Frederick North, second Earl of Guilford (1732&#150;1792). He planned to publish a biography of Lord North; it never appeared, and this was his last publication. The Monthly Review commented that "Lord Glenbervie is truer to his original in every sense of poetic truth; and, consequentely, he is far better calculated to give the English reader a just idea of the merits and of the peculiar manner of Forteguerri."

        The Shipwreck

      London - JohnSharpe, 1822. London - JohnSharpe, 1822 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An epic poem telling the final voyage of the merchant ship Britannia and her crew. In the original very decorative Regency binding. Includes numerous engravings throughout. William Falconer (bap. 1732, d. 1770), poet and lexicographer, was baptized in Edinburgh on 11 February 1732, which was possibly also the day of his birth. Nothing is known of Falconer&#39;s childhood except that he had some rudimentary schooling under one Webster before he went to sea as an apprentice, probably in the coal trade from Northumberland to London, about which he makes knowledgeable references in his poetry. Evidence for Falconer&#39;s seafaring life is to be adduced from his long poem The Shipwreck, which he claims to be autobiographical. If so, by 1749 he had completed his apprenticeship and had joined a British merchant ship in the Levant trade at Alexandria as second mate. The ship, homeward bound via Venice, was driven off course by a furious gale and was wrecked at Sunium in Greece. Falconer was one of three survivors. In 1751 he was in Edinburgh for his first publication, an ode on the death of Frederick, prince of Wales. His life for the next decade is obscure. He was almost certainly at sea in merchant ships, and there is evidence from The Shipwreck that he also served in the Royal Navy and may have been in Hawke&#39;s fleet at Quiberon Bay (November 1759). A surviving logbook records that in 1760 he was serving as mate on the Vestal frigate in the north Atlantic trade. DNBCondition: In an attractive calf-leather binding with gilt decoration. Externally generally smart, lightly rubbed in places. Internally, firmly bound. The pages are bright and clean with onlysome mild spotting to the first and last few pages and the plates due to the paper used. Copperplate ink inscription to thefront endpaper. Overall: VERY GOOD..
