        Autograph manuscript signed. 10pp., with Recamier Autograph letter signed

      Paris, 1822. <p>Chaussier, François (1746-1828). Autograph manuscript draft. 10pp. on 10 numbered leaves. [Paris:] 3 February 1822. Written on the backs of several printed and manuscript documents, including the following: Recamier, Joseph (1774-1852). Autograph letter signed to Chaussier. 1 page plus integral address leaf. [Paris:] 17 January 1822. Together two items. 254 x 201 mm. A few lacunae where seals were broken, a few pin-holes, minor marginal fraying, but very good. </p><p>Chaussier, a pioneer in forensic medicine, introduced the teaching of legal medicine in France in 1790. He began his medical career in Dijon, where he taught anatomy, chemistry and material medica at the Dijon Academy. In 1794, at the request of the French government, Chaussier went to Paris to help reorganize the country&#39;s system of medical education through the creation of the Écoles de Santé. He afterwards served as professor of anatomy in the new school, taught the course of chemistry and medicine at the École Polytechnique, and worked as a physician at the Hospice de la Maternité, where he conducted research on teratology and forensic medicine. During his long and distinguished medical career Chaussier earned a reputation as an expert in legal medicine, giving consultations, writing forensic reports, and publishing several works on the subject, including Manuel médico-légal des poisons (1824), Recueil de mémoires, consultations, et rapports sur divers objets de médecine légale (1824) and Mémoire médico-légal sur la viabilité de l&#39;enfant naissant (1826). </p><p>Chaussier&#39;s manuscript draft is a review of two earlier medical reports concerning the case of a newborn infant found dead in a cesspool. Chaussier&#39;s handwriting is difficult to read, and we have not been able to decipher all of the draft; however, we have been able to determine that much of the draft is devoted to discussing the state of the dead infant&#39;s lungs, attempting to determine whether the infant had begun to breathe before its demise. Chaussier describes the appearance of the lungs of dead infants in similar cases:</p><p>Un enfant naissant meurt quelques minutes après avoir respire et dans ces cas, dont nous avons souvent des exemples a l&#39;hospice de la maternité, les poumons sont toujours développés, rosés, crépitants, leur poids [&#133;] et lors qu&#39;on les met dans l&#39;eau ils submergent complètement.</p><p>[A newborn infant dies several minutes after having breathed and in these cases, of which we often have examples at the Hospice de la Maternité, the lungs are always developed, pink, crepitant, their weight [&#133;], and when one puts them in water they always sink completely.]</p><p>And elsewhere:</p><p>Mais remarquons . . . selon qu&#39;un enfant est mort après avoir respiré, faut-il donc en conclure ainsi qu&#39;on le fait trop souvent que cet enfant a été tué.</p><p>[But note. . . if a child died after breathing, it should be concluded as one does too often that this child was killed.]</p><p>He also notes that the infant&#39;s umbilical cord was not present, and mentions the possibility that gas present in the infant cadaver&#39;s lungs might be the result of putrefaction, given the fact that the body had been in the cesspool eleven days before its discovery.</p><p>Chaussier wrote this draft of his report on the backs of several printed or manuscript documents, including a letter sent to him a few weeks earlier by Joseph Recamier, chief physician at the Hôtel-Dieu, a pioneer in gynecological surgery (see Garrison-Morton 6033), and a cancer specialist who came up with the modern definition of metastasis. The letter reads as follows:</p><p>Monsieur et très honoré collègue,</p><p>On doit traiter une question de médecine légale au sujet d&#39;un chevreuil et d&#39;une dindonneau truffée trouvés morts chez Gri[&#133;] rue neuve des petits champs no. 4. La séance s&#39;ouvrira par une discussion sur les empoisonnements par les huitres le 24 jvr. courant à 3h et . On écoutera avec soin la question des champignons malgré les favorites [&#133;] du docteur [ ?poulet].</p><p>Voyez, si vos affaires vous permettent d&#39;être du [&#133;] dans des questions aussi importantes. Ce sera pourtant la [&#133;] et pour moi en particulier un plaisir de plus. J&#39;ai l&#39;honneur d&#39;être parfaitement Monsieur et cher maitre votre très humble serviteur Recamier.</p><p>[We must deal with a question of forensic medicine in the matter of a deer and of a young truffle-stuffed turkey found dead at Gri[&#133;]&#39;s, rue neuve des Petits Champs no. 4. The session will begin with a discussion on oyster poisoning on the 24th of this January at 3:30. We will consider carefully the question of mushrooms despite the favorite [&#133;] of doctor [?chicken].</p><p>See if your affairs will allow you to be [&#133;] on such important questions. This will yet be [&#133;] and for me in particular an additional pleasure. I have the honor to be, Monsieur and dear master, your very humble servant, Recamier.]</p><p>Recamier&#39;s letter is most likely a jocular invitation to dinner, referring humorously to a proposed forensic investigation into the deaths of a deer and a truffle-stuffed turkey, a discussion of poisoning by oysters, and "the question of mushrooms." Burton, Napoleon and the Woman Question (2007), pp. 97-98. This is the only autograph manuscript by Chaussier we have handled in more than forty years of trading. It is also the only manuscript we have ever handled in which the author wrote his draft on the back of other documents. </p>

        The Liberal. Verse and prose from the South

        Silver Medal: &#39;Voyage autour du Monde de la Corvette la Coquille&#39;

      Paris: Andrieu & Puymaurin, 1822. Silver medal, 50 mm, toned and a little scuffed above the bust, but very fine. A very good example of the rare silver medal commemorating the voyage of Louis-Isidore Duperrey to the Pacific. Duperrey was perhaps Freycinet&#39;s greatest protégé, having served as Lieutenant aboard the Uranie during the voyage around the world. Duperrey began petitioning for his own command of a similar expedition immediately on his return to France. Duperrey&#39;s voyage was one of the greatest of the French grands voyages to the Pacific. The expedition set out from Toulon on 11 August 1822, with the intention of collecting scientific data and specimens, but also instructed to report on the possibility of establishing a penal colony in Western Australia. Duperrey had as his second-in-command Dumont d&#39;Urville, who was to become the most experienced French commander in the Pacific. While science led the expedition, there was also an unspoken goal of discovering where France might carve out an empire in the South Pacific. His voyage was of some 73,000 miles, with major destinations including Australia, New Zealand, and New Guinea. By far the greatest contributions of the expedition were scientific, cartographic and ethnographic, and the Duperrey voyage account is a famously sumptuous production, with exquisite coloured plates. Of some rarity: a bronze version is recorded in the Rex Nan Kivell collection of the National Library of Australia.

      Edinburgh, printed for W. and C. Tait, 1822.FIRST EDITION 1822 translated by JOHN BELLENDEN. 4to, approximately 245 x 180 mm, 9½ x 7¼ inches, pictorial and decorated initials, pages: xii, viii, 479, finely bound in full pigskin leather, triple ruled gilt border with corner motifs and small gilt armorial device in centre of covers, raised bands to spine, gilt decoration in compartments, gilt lettering, all edges gilt, double ruled gilt inner dentelles (turn ins), marbled endpapers. Hinges rubbed and darkened, one or two minor marks to covers, couple of light scratches on lower cover, front inner paper hinge cracked, binding tight and firm, armorial bookplate on front pastedown, another small bookplate to front endpaper, endpapers slightly foxed, very small pale brown stain to 2 margins of prelims, intermittent small pale damp mark affects upper inner corner on first 65 pages, otherwise contents very clean and bright. A very good copy in a handsome binding. John Bellenden (flourished 1533 - 1587?) of Moray was a Scottish writer born towards the close of the 15th century, and educated at St. Andrews and Paris. He was requested by James V of Scotland in 1535 to translate Livy's History of Rome into the vernacular language of Scotland but it seems he never proceeded beyond the Fifth Book. He had already at the king's request translated Hector Boece's Historia Gentis Scotorum as Chroniklis of Scotland and this was published in 1536. However apart from 2 short extracts the Livy translation had never been published until this edition of 1822. The Chroniklis and the Livy by John Bellenden remain the earliest existing specimens of Scottish literary prose. According to the Notice at the head of the book, the Livy "contains more of vernacular Scotch than the Chronicles of Scotland, which appear to have been contaminated by Latin phraseology, and perhaps too, by the emendations of a printer accustomed to the language of England".

        Promenade Autour du Monde par J. Arago. Atlas volume

      Paris: Leblanc, 1822. Folio, with an engraved world map and 25 lithograph views; touch of foxing, otherwise a most attractive uncut copy in the original boards, as issued, with the publisher&#39;s printed label. The splendid atlas volume to Jacques Arago&#39;s published account of his voyage to Australia and the Pacific with the Freycinet expedition of 1817-1820. Published in 1822, Arago&#39;s illustrated narrative preceded the official account by two years; and went on to become one of the best-selling voyage books of the nineteenth-century. Davidson comments that &#39;The text volumes are scarce and the atlas rare&#39;. Arago (1790-1855) was the official artist on Freycinet&#39;s voyage, and is known for the witty and caustic account he later wrote as much as for his fine sketches. Arago was the third of four brothers who excelled in diverse professions, the most notable being his eldest brother François, the scientist and politician. Arago&#39;s undoubted artistic ability attracted the attention of the naval authorities who chose him for the demanding role of draughtsman for the Freycinet expedition. By all accounts a charming, gregarious and eccentric man, these attributes stood him in good stead during the voyage, and are reflected in the sketches he made. The atlas volume is remarkable for its suite of 25 expertly lithographed plates. They include two Australian Aboriginal studies, a landscape in the Blue Mountains outside of Sydney Town, Hawaiian scenes and portraits, native rituals of the Pacific and archaic ruins encountered in the Marianas.

        A Short and Easy Method for correcting the apparent distances of the moon from the sun or a fixed star with several new tables

      Genoa: C.M. Reggio, late H. Bonaudo, 1822. Octavo, 27 pp.; very good in the original pale blue wrappers. he Krusenstern astronomer grapples with longitude. Only edition in English: very unusual. This treatise, by the Swiss astronomer and mathematician Johann Kaspar Horner, was his contribution to the question of determining longitude at sea. Horner had himself grappled with the difficulties of practical navigation during his five year stint as the official astronomer for the Krusenstern voyage. In 1798 Horner was appointed the adjunct to Franz Xaver von Zachs, a position which led him to being appointed the secretary of the first European congress of astronomy. It was at the request of Zachs that Horner also took part in the Krusenstern voyage, taking the position of official astronomer from 1803 to 1808. This was evidently the great event of Horner&#39;s life, as he continued to have a tangible interest in the practical difficulties of voyaging even though he was appointed a Professor of Mathematics in Zurich, a position he held for two decades. As Horner himself announces, this work is similar in design to that of Captain Elford in Charleston, but he awards himself the palm for having a system of superior accuracy. This work, as might be expected for a small pamphlet printed for the author at Genoa, is from a very small edition and is now of corresponding rarity. Worldcat lists only a copy at the Swiss National Library.

        Ontdekkingsreis in de Zuid-zee en naar de Berings-Straat , in de jaren 1815, 1816, 1817, en 1818

      Amsterdam: Johannes van der Hey, 1822. Three volumes, each with engraved title-page (the last hand-coloured), four hand-coloured plates and three folding plates, five folding maps, some of the spare spine labels noted by Forbes removed; some toning but an excellent set in early twentieth-century vellum, decorated in gilt and blind, spines darkened. Fine set in vellum of the uncommon Dutch edition of the Kotzebue voyage to the Pacific, the second Russian scientific expedition. &#39;A Dutch edition of the first Kotzebue voyage, translated by P.G. Witsen Geysbeek, with prefaces by the translator in volume I and II and footnotes throughout. The three hand-coloured portraits in volume II are "Tameamea, Konig der Sandwich-Eilanden" (p. 28), a version of the "red vest" portrait by Choris; "Rarick" (p. 130); and "Kadu" (p. 230). A folding plate in volume II&hellip; depicts the heiau and Kamehameha&#39;s residence at Kailua, Kona. The hand-coloured vignette on the volume III title is of the butterfly named for Kamehameha&#39; (Forbes). A fourth hand-coloured plate in the first volume depicts "Inwoners van Kotzebue-Sond." Kotzebue&#39;s voyage is one of the great Pacific exploration accounts. This famous voyage narrative is particularly important for its descriptions of Alaska, California (including the first scientific account of the state flower, the Golden Poppy), Hawaii and Micronesia; Lada-Mocarski describes the account of Alaska as &#39;rich in early original source material.&#39; The expedition rounded Cape Horn and visited Chile, Easter Island, the Marshall Islands, Hawaii and the North American coast, making an unsuccessful search for a Northwest passage. The Rurik sailed along the California coast, stopping at San Francisco; Kotzebue describes the missions, and the work is considered one of the most important early accounts of the state. Kotzebue made a stop in Hawaii in November-December 1816, revisiting again in September-October 1817, anchoring off Hawaii and Oahu. The Hawaiian portion is extensive with important observations on life and customs during the reign of Kamehameha I, whose famous "red vest" portrait by Choris is one of the illustrations.

        An Encyclopaedia of Gardening

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown, 1822. Six volumes, octavo, including the index; aside from a little inoffensive foxing an excellent set in contemporary black half calf with marbled boards, each volume bearing a respective label - &#39;Planting&#39;, &#39;Floriculture&#39; etc.; four page prospectus for the single volume octavo edition of the encyclopaedia loosely inserted. First edition, complete in six volumes including the comprehensive index bound as a separate final volume. The encyclopaedia is global in scope, with sub-chapters treating Asia, the Americas, and other British colonies including New South Wales and Van Diemen&#39;s Land. On Australia Loudon writes: &#39;the botanical riches of this country, and the singular aspect of the native plants, are well known. There are gardeners and botanists established in and near Sidney (sic), who collect seeds for England, and other parts of Europe; and it is in contemplation to establish a government botanic garden there, which will doubtless by of essential service in collecting and preserving native plants.&#39; Indeed, the index to this volume reveals Australian plants, including Acacia and Eucalyptus, were already well distributed in British gardening circles. The Encyclopaedia of Gardening includes further information on Australian soils, climate and the progress of horticulture generally. Differences between cultivation in Van Diemen&#39;s Land and the more genial climate of Sydney is discussed (curiously the inland climate &#39;to the westward of the Blue Mountains&#39; is likened to that of Tasmania). The author, John Claudius Loudon (1783-1843), was a Scottish botanist, horticultural designer and editor of The Gardener&#39;s Magazine, famous for his design of the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, Stradsett Hall in Norfolk and the Abbey Cemetery in Bath.

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.

        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.

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."

This issue in plain boards is most scarce, and I think it antedates copies in the picture boards" (Cohn).Of the sixty-three copies that have come to auction since 1975 only one was a large-paper copy in original boards."Issued in 21 parts paper wrappers on small and large paper and on completion in buff pictorial boards with vignette of the title page repeated on the upper cover, 2 woodcuts on back cover and spine...Some large-paper copies were, however, issued in plain boards [as here], and these in Cohn&#39;s opinion antedate the pictorial boards.
