First edition. "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. Theal (History of South Africa, 1795-1834) remarks that the author was 'a man of talent, an easy writer, and scrupulously exact in his descriptions,' and according to Sclater he was 'a most skilful and well-trained zoologist and botanist, and his observations are all accurate and methodical'" (Mendelssohn). For his influence on the development of the now "common practice of recording the date and precise locality of specimens collected, their morphological features, and the characteristics of their habitats", Burchell is considered to be a pioneer ecologist, and his catalogues and collections, although they remain in manuscript form "are regarded by naturalists as basic sources of exceptional historical value" (ODNB). While Czech notes the "numerous instance of hunting", and Burchell's opinion that once tasted by "English lovers of good eating", steaks of the "fine lively Hippopotami" would inevitably become "an article of regular importation".

        Mavrocordatos defends Missolonghi. "Mavrocordtos defends Missolonghi victoriously"

      Philhellenic: Munich H. Kohler c1835. Tinted lithograph, as issued, of Alexander Mavrocordatos on the walls of Missolonghi from Peter von Hess's Album of Greek Heroism, or the Deliverance of Greece / Griechenlands Befreiung ... in XXXIX Bildern.[ First edition.] within decorative borders incorporating captions in Greek, German, French & English. The borders are decorated with guns, swords and helmets with the Greek flag to the left; on the right a crucifix and other emblems of the Christian church; at the top Turkish weapons, laid down, with a fez and below, sails and naval instruments. The image shows Mavrocordatos on the walls of Missolonghi, looking out to sea as a canon is pulled into position. The first siege of Missolonghi ,October 25 – December 31, 1822 was laid after the Battle of Peta ,Omer Vryonis initially tried to take the town by negotiations, against the opinion of ReÅŸid Mehmed and Yussuf Pasha of Patras. The besieged Greeks took advantage of this, dragging the negotiations out until November 8, when they were reinforced by sea with over 1,500 fighters. Then the Ottomans realized their mistake, and resumed the siege in earnest. After a month of bombardment and sorties, the main Ottoman assault was set for the night of December 24, before Christmas, calculating that the Greeks would be caught by surprise. The Greeks however were warned by Vryonis' Greek secretary, and the attack failed. The siege was subsequently lifted on December 31. Missolonghi remained under Greek control, and resisted another Ottoman attempt at its capture a year later. Its resistance achieved wider fame when Lord Byron arrived there, dying in the town of fever in April 1824. The city was besieged for a third and final time, resisting both Ottoman and Egyptian armies for almost a year, until its final fall on April 10, 1826. Image bright and clean; spotting to blank borders; short tear (15mm) at upper edge. Peter( Heinrich Lambert} von Hess 1792-1871, was a German painter, known for historic paintings, especially of the Napoleonic Wars and the Greek War of Independence. In 1833, at Ludwig's request, he accompanied Otto of Greece to the newly formed Kingdom of Greece, where at Athens he gathered materials for pictures of the war of liberation. He stayed nine months in Greece, interviewing heroes and eyewitnesses of the 1821 revolution. His first- hand knowledge of the heroes gives power to his work. He drew 39 historical persons The sketches which he then made were placed, forty in number, in the Pinakothek, after being copied in wax on a large scale by Nilsen, in the northern arcades of the Hofgarten at Munich, [sadly now destroyed]. It should be noted that Hess was not present during the Revolution; the paintings are representations of reported events. many are of Greek victories, or of heroic deaths of the Greek leaders. Not in Blackmer ,Droulia or Contominas. Philhellenic Mavrocordatos Missolonghi

Harding&#39;s career as an astronomer began in 1796 when he became a private tutor in the household of A. H. Schröter, who had a private observatory at Lilienthal, near Bremen. The best observations of great planets during that time were made at Lilienthal, mostly by Harding; and the Vereinigte Astronomische Gesellschaft was founded there. Its primary aim was to make star charts. This aim was realized only by Harding, who drew up a celestial atlas containing about 60,000 stars. While working on the chart, Harding discovered (1804) the third asteroid and named it Juno Georgia in honor of George III. He also discovered three comets..

Burchell says of these in the Preface &#39;in order to ensure greater correctness in the vignettes, the author has made all these drawings upon the blocks themselves.&#39; Burchell certainly emerges as a better artist than another missionary-traveller in South Africa, Campbell, a slight dispute with whom is mentioned in Volume II ... and is discussed in the note to Campbell&#39;s Travels in South Africa, 1815"" (Abbey)." . web and print images available

        Memoirs de Madame de Motteville, pour Sevir a l&#39;Histoire d&#39;Anne d&#39;Autriche. In five volumes

      Paris - Colnet Libraire, 1822 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce set of de Motteville&#39;s history of Queen Anne of Austria. Complete in five volumes. Franoise Bertaut de Motteville (c. 1621 1689), French memoir writer, was the daughter of Pierre Bertaut, a gentleman of the king&#39;s chamber, and niece of the bishop-poet Jean Bertaut. Her mother, a Spaniard, was the friend and private secretary of Anne of Austria, wife of Louis XIII. At the age of seven Franoise was also made a member of the Queen&#39;s household. The influence of Richelieu, however, who wished to separate the queen from her Spanish connections, exiled mother and daughter to Normandy. In 1642 the Queen summoned Mme de Motteville to court afterthe death of Richelieu and Louis XIII. Some of her letters are preserved, but her chief work is her Mmoires, which are in effect a history of Anne of Austria. They give a faithful picture of court lifeat that time. Condition: In half calf bindings with marbled boards. Externally, generally smart, lightly rubbed in places. One hinge slightly strained. Internally, firmly bound. Light scattered foxing. Some marginal tidemarks to Volume I and damp staining to the first few pages of Volumes III and IV. Pp204-217 of Volume II has been previously reinforced. Overall: GOOD..

        A Pedestrian Tour of Two Thousand Three Hundred Miles, in North America. To the Lakes, -The Canadas, - And the New-England States Performed in the Autumn of 1821. Embellished with Views

      New York: J. D. Myers & W. Smith, 1822. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. An about Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, in the Publisher&#39;s original brick-colored lettered and decorated boards (original boards rubbed, spine -replaced but old - cracked and with some loss, front hinge held by white tape), complete with nine full-page illustrations and with two pages of advertisements to the rear. The book&#39;s front pastedown carries the bookplate of Charles H. Bell and the front free endpaper that of noted William Wordsworth collector Cynthia Morgan St. John whose Wordsworth Collection now is held by Cornell University. Charles H. Bell [aka Charles Henry Bell] served in the New Hampshire House, the New Hampshire Senate, and as Governor of New Hampshire. Stansbury conducted North American&#39;s first noted walking tour in 1821, providing in this volume some of the best early descriptions of Battlefields of the British conquest of Canada (1759 - 1763), the 1812 invasion of Canada, wars with the Native Americans ("Indians") in the New England States, and the disastrous expedition of General Burgoyne who was forced to surrender his 5,000 troops to the American revolutionary forces. In this work, Stansbury created the American walking tour literary genre, preceding later walking tour works such as Walt Whitman&#146;s &#147;Song Of The Open Road&#148; (1856), Henry David Thoreau&#146;s &#147;The Maine Woods&#148; (1854) and &#147;Cape Cod&#148; (1856), and John Muir&#146;s classic &#147;A Thousand Mile Walk To The Gulf&#148; (1912). Copies of this important work are extraordinarily scarce to the market with only two copies having appeared at auction in the last 55 years, neither of which were in their original boards. A rare copy of an important book with an excellent Provenance and in the Publisher&#39;s original boards.

      Paris: Jean-Francois Bastien, 1822 Paris: Chez Jean-Francois Bastien, 1822. Nouvelle Traduction, Avec Le Latin En Regard, Par J.A. Maury [New Translation, with Latin Original Text on facing versos, by J.A. Maury]. Imprimerie D&#39;Ange Clo. Line engravings with tissue guards throughout both volumes. Two volumes, octavo; vol. 1 [6] xxvii + 370 pp.; vol 2 [6], 426 pp. Half calf with marbled boards, gilt and black compartments and lettering on spine; marbled endpapers; all page edges marbled. One example in each copy, at the front pastedown, of the artful bookplate of author Kirby Flower Smith. Leather worn and soiled with three joints cracked; spine ends perished and two small spine pieces missing as well from Vol 1; light internal foxing, rarely affecting the abundant plates, and scarcely so when that occurs. A scarce antiquarian two-volume rendition, in French on rectos with Latin original text on versos opposite, of "The Golden Ass" (or, "Metamorphosis") of Apulius. The earliest known classic tale of its type, that being a rather zesty account of the ribald Thessalian adventures of a young Greek aristocrat, Lucius. Eventually, Lucius betrays a priestess - as much of a no-no then as now - and is transformed into an ass. Been there, done that, got the t-shirt. Written by Apulius in the second century A.D. Replete with [uncredited] enchanting line-drawing engravings after the fashion of Flaxman; the stylistic novelty, particularly with illustrations of ancient Greek scenes, carries more than a bit of magic. For the bookplate collector, there are two of Kirby Flower Smith&#39;s stylish plates, one in each volume. Smith authored The Elegies of Albius Tibullus, Numa and Egeria, The Tale of Gyges and the King of Lydia, and other titles. An uncommon set. L-37n
