Erste Ausgabe, recht selten. - Johann Friedrich Krüger (geb. 1770 in Strausberg; gest.1836 in Quedlinburg) war im Stift Quedlinburg als Baumeister angestellt.

        THE FASHIONABLE TOUR: Or, a Trip to the Springs, Niagara, Quebeck, and Boston, in the Summer of 1821

      Saratoga Springs: Self Published, 1822. Saratoga Springs: Self Published. Good. 1822. First Edition. Leather. The first edition of the first U. S. Guide book to a pleasure tour. Howes D143. In the original binding of quarter gilt-titled calf and paper boards, with the original endpapers. A very clean and straight copy, rather attractive. Two of the small leather corners are slightly eroded, and most of the paper is rubbed from the top board; and the spine extremities are faintly rubbed. All endpapers are unevenly foxed or darkened, and there is a tiny marginal tear on the title page. The sheets are foxed and stained throughout, with tanning to every page. There is a faint inscription in light pencil on the endpaper by the previous owner. Several pages have odd notations in pencil at the top, next to the page number. Several pages have small corner folds. Page 29/30 has the bottom corner clipped, up to the last line of text, with no loss of text. Pages 81-88 jut out from the fore edge a bit. Page 89 is mis-numbered as page 98, with the correct text for page 89. The real page 98 has different text. ; 32mo 4" - 5" tall; 165 pages; Gideon Minor Davison introduced the first tourist guidebook ever published in America, in 1822. This guidebook was unique in several respects. He organized his entries geographically: they pulled the reader along a very specific route. It was like standard travel literature in that it described a route, but it differed in the way it was written. It did not have a narrative voice; instead it had an omniscient, even commanding tone, go here, then see that. Davison changed the language and format of travel writing from either highly personal accounts or the capsule-type descriptions used in city guides. With his guide (and note that anyone who was truly "fashionable" would not need a guidebook) , a traveller was directed to Saratoga, one of the haunts of the uppermost classes, and then, after a suitably long stay, to Niagara, the nexus of romantic sentiment in America. Along the way, the traveller was directed to observe certain places and things, and Davison embellished them with 'romantick' stories, designed to create a sensibility and an atmosphere. These innovations meant that Davison had invented what was in effect a new form, a subgenre perhaps, of American travel literature: the tourist guidebook. Davidson's other contribution was that this book was specifically directed at leisure travelers - tourists - rather than say, commercial travelers, and it was the first to do so. Davidson chose an unusual format for his new product. Physically it was small, pocket sized. It was printed, and finished cheaply. Printed paper covers enclosed a weakly stitched set of pages with ragged-cut edges and a text lacking illustrations or even a map. All of this signalled that the book was going to be used once or twice in the field then tossed aside. .

        Geographical, Statistical, and Historical Map of Mexico

      Philadelphia: Carey & Lea, 1822. Philadelphia: Carey & Lea, 1822. unbound. J. Finlayson. Map. Engraving with original hand coloring. Image measures 15"x 14.5", image plus text measures 16.5" x 20.5". This map of Mexico combines a detailed topographical and political rendering with information pertaining to history, climate and culture. It was published in 1822, shortly before Austin's arrival in Texas and immediately prior to Mexico's independence from Spain. The index of the map includes cities, rivers, military posts, and mines, and information about exploration and Indian population is also noted. The nap was printed in Carey & Lea's "Complete Historical, Chronological, and Geographical American Atlas." Minor chipping at corners, some discoloration at centerfold. The Philadelphia-based firm of Carey & Lea of Philadelphia was one of the most important publishers in the early 19th-century United States. Run by Mathew Carey (1760-1839) and Isaac Lea (1792-1886), the company worked with both books and maps, specializing particularly in political commentary. Their "Complete Historical, Chronological, and Geographical American Atlas," first published in 1822, not only contained some of the earliest maps of western states being admitted to the Union, it also provided ample information on those states. As a result, their work, such as this map of Mississippi, provides an invaluable window into the country's history. This map of Mexico is one of the earliest detailed maps of the region printed in the United States.

        [Three complete sets of horse studies and two single plates.] Etudes de chevaux apres nature.

      Paris, Gihaut, [1822-1823].. Folio (368 x 272 mm). 30 lithogr. plates, including one title page. Bound in contemp. oblong red half morocco, spine bearing giltstamped title "Chevaux et Voitures".. Three series of Gericault's horse studies, each complete as published and in excellent impressions on strong wove paper (not watermarked), bound together with a hitherto unrecorded depiction of a sheikh on an Arabian horse. The first series, published as "Etudes de Chevaux lithographies" in 1822, shows various horse races, including the Arabian horse as well as Egyptian, English, and French horses. "Cet ouvrage sera compose de trois livraisons, dont chacune contiendra quatre planches" (Beaux-arts de Paris). Second of at least four states throughout, with the names of the artist and printer. The second series, published without a title in 1823, shows the various purposes for which horses are used (racehorses, military horses, cart horses and postillon horses, among others) and is complete as well with eight prints. The third series, also issued without a title in 1823, comprises seven prints depicting cavalry, trotters, a horse leaping over an obstacle, and a jockey on his horse, also including two oriental-themed plates: a lion devouring a horse and a fist-shaking "Giaour" (not from Gericault's Byron series). Three plates from this set are identified by Delteils as contemporary copies by Louis Courtin. The lithographed frontispiece of the first series was bound at the beginning of the present volume as a title. The final leaves in this collection are the dead horse in the snow (an image inspired by Napoleon's Russian campaign) from Gericault's 1823 series "Quatre sujects divers", and a fine plate of a pistol-wielding Sheikh mounted on his Arabian steed, with an oriental desert settlement in the background (not recorded by Delteil). "Gericault est, sans conteste, un des plus grands peintres hippiques de son siecle [...] Les bonnes epreuves sont recherchees et et assez rares" (Mennessier de la Lance I, 545). - Of the utmost rarity: while the British Museum holds the complete suites of the first series, we were unable to trace any complete copies of the other suites contained in this sammelband. While numerous separate Gericault lithographs sold at recent auctions, fetching up to 3000 each, not a single complete suite is listed in auction records of the last decades. - All prints are of exceptional quality, showing rich contrast on superior paper, occasionally showing various degrees of foxing in the margins; a minute tear to the lower edge of the title leaf. Attractively bound in red half morocco with sparsely gilt spine. Altogether a beautiful copy in excellent, crisp condition. - Delteil 46-57; 58-65; 66-72; 77.

Aggiungo, che la mia Macchina puo essere piantata sopra una Collina, per quanto erta ella sia, e dove non vi andassero per una strada tortuosa, e lunga; ne questa puo essere limitata a soli usi agronomi, a cui dapprima l'aveva destinata, ma sibbene puo servire ad ogni bisogno di terrapieni, arginature; alla costruzione prontissima di Fortini, ed altre opere militari, dovunque si tratti di trasportar terre."

Blasius u.a. (Stuttgart, Hoffmann) mit den Tafeln 371-391, die das Gesamtwerk abrunden. - J. F. Naumann (1780-1857) "arbeitete für seinen Vater als Illustrator für dessen im Selbstverlag erscheinende "Naturgeschichte der Land- u. Wasservögel des nördlichen Deutschland" (4 Bde., 1795-1804). Ab dem 3. Band trug er nicht nur Abbildungen, sondern auch Beobachtungen bei und komplettierte des Vaters Werk 1804-17 mit der Herausgabe von acht "Nachträgen", für die er 233 Tafeln zeichnete und stach. Dies war der Auftakt zu N.s Hauptwerk, der "Naturgeschichte der Vögel Deutschlands nach eigenen Erfahrungen entworfen" (1820-44), einer umfassenden Monographie der Vögel Mittel- und Nordeuropas, die bald hochgeschätzt war. Dazu trugen neben den auf Lebendbeobachtung - statt, wie bisher üblich, auf Stopfpräparate - gegründeten Abbildungen und den zahlreichen Beobachtungen seines Bruders Carl Andreas auch die vergleichend anatomisch-physiologischen Abschnitte bei, die der Hallesche Zoologe Christian Ludwig Nitzsch (1782-1837) verfaßte. Das Werk enthält ausführliche Schilderungen der Lebensweise der Arten (Wandel im Federkleid, Lebensgewohnheiten, Nahrung, Brut und Brutfürsorge, Gesänge und Rufe) und viele Details über das Verhalten und die Verbreitung. Wenngleich aus heutiger Sicht nicht ohne Mängel, diente es doch der Schulung von Generationen von Ornithologen" (NDB online). - Tafeln und Textblätter teils gebräunt, 2 Tafeln leicht gelöst im Falz, Tafeln seitlich teils etwas beschnitten (ohne Bildverlust), 1 Frontispiz mit Feuchtigkeitsspur im Falz, einige Bll. mit Knickspuren, 1 Frontispiz mit Abklatsch, insgesamt jedoch schönes Exemplar.

        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.. 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&#39;s in Captain Cook&#39;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.

This is one of fifty such deluxe copies of the first edition. Louis Choris, born Login Choris in Jekaterinolsaw, Russia on March 22, 1795, was only twenty years old when he was appointed official artist "aboard the Rurik, 1815- 1818, commanded by the Russian, Otto von Kotzebue. The purpose of the voyage was to search for the supposed Northwest Passage. After visiting islands in the South Seas, Kotzebue explored the North American coast and landed twice on the Hawaiian Islands....[The first work in particular] has great American interest because of its lithographs of California, the Queen Charlotte Islands, the Aleutians, St. Lawrence Island in the Bering Sea, and Kotzebue Sound in Alaska. The lithographs cover all aspects of native life and culture, as well as the natural history of the area. Choris was a Russian of German stock, and his book is considered one of the most beautiful books of travel in existence. A map of the route of the expedition accompanies the work" (Hill). The work was issued in twenty-two parts, in three different forms: with the plates uncolored, with just the natural history subjects colored, or in a deluxe form, as here, with all the plates handcolored. "Complete copies with all the plates colored are very rare" - Hill. BM (NH) I, p.347. BRUNET I:1851. COWAN, p.123. FORBES I, 541. GRAFF 699. HILL 290. HOWES C397, "c."

Indeed, the taste for it amounted to a craze. For his illustrations, Egan went to two brothers, Isaac Robert and George Cruikshank the success of the work was so great that the artists could not colour the engravings fast enough for the demand. It suited the taste of the time, when a &#145;fast&#146; life had become a sophisticated and conscious aim. Life in London is a guide to a fast life. Part of the success enjoyed by [Pierce Egan&#146;s Life in London] was due, no doubt, to its readers&#146; belief that they could name the originals of the fictitious characters. Imitations came swift and frequent " (The Cambridge History of English and American Literature ).Cohn 262. Abbey, Life 281. Prideaux p. 307, 310, 335. Tooley 196.

Scarborough: "Printed by and for John Cole, and, published in London by W. Darton...and by Birdsall and Sons, Northampton, 1822." From the upper cover: "Only 6 Copies on coloured Paper." This book was issued on large and small paper but it is not well known, if known at all, that there were copies printed on colored paper. The paper here is a rich pink with the exception of signatures B-D which are printed on a medium brown paper. Tipped-in at front is the prospectus for this work, a long slip of paper, printing a poem "Two D.D.&#39;s" and describing the proposed work (but not mentioning copies on colored paper). A charming work of provincial printing. This copy, annotated in a number of places by Cole, is his own and is described in his private library catalogue issued in 1829 (no. 53). The final ten pages contain the subscribers&#39; names including Archdeacon Francis Wrangham. Hervey (1714-58), was a Northamptonshire clergyman and writer (see ODNB). Fine copy.

        A System of Anatomical Plates of the Human Body; Accompanied with Descriptions, Physiological, Pathological & Surgical Observations

      Edinburgh: Printed for Daniel Lizards, 1822-26. First edition, 2 vols., 8vo text volume consisting of 12 parts each with a separate title and pagination, folio atlas volume containing an engraved title, dedication and table of contents followed by 101 lithographed plates (of which 15 are hand-coloured), text volume with minimal water staining, cont. half calf, plate volume bound in cont. cloth, two leaves of publisher&#39;s advertisements at end (one announcing lectures, October and November 1826, at the New Theatre, Anatomy & Surgery, No. 1 Surgeons&#39; Square, Edinburgh), early bookstamp on flyleaf of D. Reeve, Surgeon, faded on upper cover, rebacked with orig. spine laid-down, uncut, a very good sound set. "This superb atlas is certainly one of the most elegant works of the nineteenth century. The 101 lithographs were drawn by the author and his brother, William Home Lizars (1788-1859), from the author&#39;s dissections. Lizars was a pupil of John Bell and served as a naval surgeon before becoming professor of surgery at the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh. Lizars developed a great reputation as a teacher and was also a bold and forthright surgeon. He made a number of original contributions, was a pioneer in performing ovariotomies in Europe, and he clearly demonstrated the value of abdominal exploration as a diagnostic procedure. However, he was somewhat ahead of his time and received criticism for exploring new surgical techniques, although later many of his new techniques became widely accepted. Lizars possessed great talent but his potential was never fully realized perhaps because of a continuing feud with another prominent surgeon of his day--James Syme. Lizars was an active writer and prepared many papers on such subjects as hernia, lithotomy, and hemorrhoids." (Heirs of Hippocrates).

      Manchester C. Wheeler & Son. 1822 - A beautifully bound copy of this first edition. Full speckled calf, with six panels to the spine. Burgundy label with gilt titles. Internally clean and tidy throughout. This was once a library copy - but few marks remain. Copac lists some copies with just the folding plan, as found here, and others with an additional 2 plates & a map. The binder has dated this item 1819 to the spine - the date of the trial, rather than the date of publication. The binding is in excellent condition. There is no marking to it. The folding plan is likewise, clean and tidy - a very clear copy. The rest of the book is clean throughout, with rough cut edges. There a couple of lightly embossed library crests. The only other evidence of library ownership is a library stamp to the verso of the title page. The Peterloo Massacre was the name given to the aftermath of a cavalry charge at a political meeting in St Peter&#146;s field, Manchester in 1819. Cavalry charged into a crowd of 60,000&#150;80,000 that had gathered to demand the reform of parliamentary representation. A test case was brought against four members of the Manchester Yeomanry at Lancaster Assizes, on 4 April 1822: Captain Birley, Captain Withington, Trumpeter Meagher, and Private Oliver. All were acquitted, as the court ruled that their actions had been justified to disperse an illegal gathering. This is the reporting and account in court of that test case. xx., 1-632 pp. + plan of St Peter&#146;s field. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
