Also Towns, Villages, Rovers, Hills, Gentleman's Seats, and Every Object Interesting to the Traveller or Resident. [Cover Title]

      London: G. & J. Cary, 2nd April, 1822. Overall dimensions approximately 150 x 186 cm. A magnificent and very large folding map, extending from Haverhill in the north down to the south coast and Hungerford across to the coasts of Essex and Kent, original colour in outline marking out the county boundaries and the principle roads, also in block highlighting the parks and estates, dissected into 36 sections and mounted on linen, folds into the original marbled paper slipcase with the publisher's printed label to the upper cover. Some light wear to the case, very good overall. Not in Howgego, though the map probably bears some relation to no. 290: physically a much smaller map, though it is on the same scale as here - two inches to the mile - it was compiled from sheets of the Carys' map of England and Wales.

        Philosophical Recreations, or Winter Amusements: A Collection of Entertaining & Surprising Experiments in Mechanics, Arithmetic, Optics, Hydrostatics, Hydraulics, Pneumatics, Electricity, Chemistry, Magnetism, & Pyrotechny, or Art of Making Fire Works, Together with the Wonders of the Air Pump, Magic Lanthorn, Camera Obscura, &c. &c. &c. and a Variety of Tricks with Cards

      London: Printed for Thomas Hughes, 1822. First edition, second issue, of this collection of educational home entertainments, first published in 1820. These "winter amusements" were ideally suited for nineteenth-century households whose members felt a moral imperative against idleness. The recreations include number games and puzzles, arts and crafts, home improvement projects, magic tricks and secret codes, and scientific experiments inspired by the likes of Boyle. Some have clear practical application (how to detect counterfeit coins, how to make wax candles), while others do not (how to construct a talking "oracular head," how to ship a fish while keeping it alive). Still others seem downright dangerous (how to enter a room on fire, how to deliver electric shocks with a homemade battery). This second issue includes an ad for the book's sequel, Domestic Amusements, on the lower board. A near-fine copy of a fascinating resource, scarce in original publisher's boards. 18mo, original printed paper boards rebacked, text block uncut. Hand-colored folding engraved frontispiece. Ink ownership inscription to interior of front board, pencil notations to page 81, final fly leaf, and lower board. Early reinforcement to hinge of folding frontispiece; tear to pages 183-184, not affecting text.

        THE CHRONICLES OF ANDREW; CONTAINING AN ACCURATE AND BRIEF ACCOUNT OF GENERAL JACKSON'S VICTORIES IN THE SOUTH, OVER THE CREEKS AND HIS VICTORIES OVER THE BRITISH AT NEW-ORLEANS. WITH A BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF HIS LIFE. [Removed from:] Hillard, Isaac: A WONDERFUL AND HORRIBLE THING IS COMMITTED IN THE LAND...

      [Hamilton, Oh, 1822. Contemporary half leather and paper boards. Boards quite edgeworn and soiled. Contemporary ownership signatures of members of the Van Cleve family on front free endpapers, bookplate on rear pastedown. Toned, scattered foxing. Good. An interesting creation in which an early owner has removed Jesse Denson's THE CHRONICLES OF ANDREW from the 1822 Hamilton, Ohio edition of Isaac Hillard's A WONDERFUL AND HORRIBLE THING IS COMMITTED IN THE LAND... and bound it as a separate, discreet title. Denson's highly approving assessment of Andrew Jackson's conduct in the War of 1812 and against the Creek Indians was first published in Lexington, Kentucky and Milledgeville, Georgia in 1815. In that sense it is the third edition of the text. It was then included as the concluding section of the 1822 edition of Hillard's book, which was first published (without the Denson portion) in Poughkeepsie in 1814. Denson's text is a mixture of prose and poetry, written in a highly religious style, thereby lending Andrew Jackson godlike qualities. A strange copy of a strange title. 1822 edition of Hillard: HOWES H491. SABIN 31915. STREETER SALE 1736. AMERICAN IMPRINTS 9010.

        Enumeratio Plantarum Horti Regii Botanici Berolinensis

      Berolini (Berlin): G. Reimer, 1821-, 1822. Some foxing, very good condition.. Two volumes, octavo, untrimmed and largely unopened, modern marbled wrappers. Greatly revised and expanded second edition of the plants of the Berlin Botanic Garden. The work was first issued in 1809 by Willdenow, but his death in 1812, and the tremendous influx of exotic plants after 1815 meant that a revised edition was a priority.The work was prepared by Johann Heinrich Friedrich Link (1767-1851), a botanist who had been taught by the great Göttingen scientist Blumenbach, and who worked across Europe before his appointment to Berlin in 1815. Link took it upon himself to greatly expand the Berlin gardens, adding thousands of new specimens and publishing widely. A study of the book shows that Link was well-positioned to take over from Willdenow, and it is possible to map a steady and impressive influx of exotics into Berlin: the two varieties of banksias present in 1809, for example, had by the time of Link's catalogue become an impressive eleven.

        Memoria que para ajudar em seus trabalhos a respeitavel Commissão do Commercio da capital offerece á mesma .

      Lisbon, Na Typographia Rollandiana, 1822. - 4°, later (nineteenth-century?) plain beige wrappers. Typographical ornament on title page. Typographical headpiece on p. 5. In fine condition. 41 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Almeida undertakes to answer the questions posed by the Comissão para o Melhoramento do Commercio de Lisboa: What hindrances exist to Portuguese commerce? How can they be removed? How can commerce be helped to thrive? He discusses what the government's priorities should be with respect to commerce, what constitutes the wealth of a nation, the necessity of government protection for persons and property, and balance of trade. He argues for fewer imports of "Fazendas Indianas" from Asia (p. 26) and cites many specific decrees of the second half of the eighteenth century that are causing problems for commerce. A note on p. 3 states that this work was published by the members of the Commissão para o Melhoramento do Commercio de Lisboa at the request of its author, for distribution to members of the Commissão and the Cortês. Extra copies were to be sold, with the profit going to the Casa Pia. The work is dated December 16, 1821 (p. 41).The work is organized in sections, with corollaries, scholia, and principles - a system reminiscent of scholastic theology. Laranjo notes that the author's @Compendio, which also appeared in 1822, was organized in the same way.Laranjo states that Almeida's @Compêndio was the first economic compendium written in Portuguese: "O @Compendio é a primeira tentativa, que se fez em Portugal, para reduzir os assuntos económicos a um corpo de doutrinas ." (Laranjo, p. 98). Almeida's theories are based largely on Adam Smith rather than Jean-Baptiste Say; he was also influenced by Sismondi and Herrenschwand, but had a critical attitude to all: "não era falto de erudição, nem de algum mérito crítico o primeiro compêndio de Economia Política que se escreveu em Portugal" (Laranjo, pp. 99-100).Almeida's writings on economics were spurred by the Liberal Revolution of 1820. In February 1821, Deputado João Rodrigues de Brito proposed to the Cortês that chairs for political economics be created in Lisbon, Coimbra, and Porto; that Jean-Baptiste Say's theories should be taught, if no better option could be found; and that anyone outside the universities who wanted to teach economics should be recompensed by the state in proportion to the number of pupils he taught. A month later, the Comissão de Instrução Pública presented a @parecer that mentioned Manuel Almeida, who had proposed that a chair of economics be established in Portalegre (where Almeida lived), and that the works of Say should not be the basis for the course. The Comissão acknowledged that Say was not perhaps the best economist to use in the course, and asked all those who considered themselves knowledgeable enough to teach economics to write a compendium for use in schools, or to translate a work but adapt it to the situation in Portugal.In December 1821, Almeida submitted Part I of his @Compendio to the Cortês, who referred it to the Comissão in January 1822. The Comissão approved it in February 1822 and authorized its printing. It appeared in Lisbon, 1822 under the title @Compendio d'economia politica, redigido depois do convite feito pelas Córtes em sessão de 24 de Março de 1821.Innocêncio notes that in 1822 few works on economics were available in Portuguese, and that this @Memória and the @Compendio were appreciated by Almeida's compatriots: "Estes escriptos, que versavam sobre uma sciencia ainda então pouco cultivada em Portugal, e offereciam certa novidade no modo de a tractar, grangearam por isso a boa acceitação e acolhimento do publico, que soube fazer justiça ás intenções do auctor. Creio que difficilmente se encontrarão hoje exemplares de algum d'elles."P. Manuel de Almeida (1769-1833), a secular presbyter with a degree from the University of Coimbra, was prior at Santa Maria Magdalena in Portalegre.*** Innocêncio V, 349-50.

        Voyage Pittoresque en Sicile.

      Paris Jules Didot -26 1822 - Two volumes. Folio (66 x 50 cm). (1) half-titles, title pages, (2) dedication, 40 pp. 1 map engraved by Orgiazzi, 92 aquatint plates by Franz Hegi, Theodore Henry Fielding, Newton Fielding and others after Forbin, Huber, Vauzelle, Lesamt, Bonington, Copley, Renoux and others, contemporary brown straight-grain morocco gilt, marbled boards; later endpapers, corners slightly bumped, edges untrimmed, moderate rubbing to joints. Rare views of Sicily: a beautiful example, with wide margins, of the first edition of one of the most lavish of all aquatint books illustrated by the foremost Swiss and British aquatint artists of the day, including the two Fieldings, after original studies by some of the leading European artists. One of a very small number of aquatint books depicting Italian scenery, which shows Palermo (12 plates), Monreale (2), Segesta (4), Agrigento (16), Syracuse (16), Catania (5), Taormina (4), Messina (5), and several other towns, as well as temples, ruins, and views of Mt Etna. D'Ostervald, the editor, originally intended to issue Voyage pittoresque en Sicile in between 27 and 32 parts, but as he states in the 'Avis de l'Editeur', he resisted this desire and limited the work to 24 parts, in order not to over-extend it, nor weary his subscribers. The remarkable plates are, as Abbey records, in large part the work of English engravers, whose reputation was very high at the time in France and who were responsible for 43 of the 92 plates. As d'Ostervald notes in the 'Avis', 'j'ai attire successivement a Paris une douzaine de graveurs d'aqua-tint les plus habiles de l'Angleterre et de la Suisse'. The author (born in Paris in 1771, dying c. 1840) was imprisoned for a time in 1792 as a royalist suspect. He married in 1794 and was attached to the Foreign Ministry, dealing with affairs relating to England. Only 500 copies were produced, some coloured, some on india paper, but the survival rate of copies has been poor and the work is rarely offered for sale.

Early view of Warragamba River in the lower Blue Mountains, the site of Sydney's ever important Warragamba Dam from the official published account of the major French voyage of 1817-1820 to Australia and the Pacific commanded by Louis de Freycinet.The French took considerable interest in the penal colony at Port Jackson, and Freycinet was astounded by the growth of the settlement and the quality of the architecture he encountered, having previously visited Sydney Cove as an officer on the Baudin voyage of 1800-1804. This fine view reflects the curiosity of the French visitors who enjoyed warm hospitality now that Britain and France were at peace and could inspect the settlement unhindered.

        Philosophiae naturalis principia mathematica

      Glasguae: Andreae et Joannis M. Duncan 8vo (24.2 cm, 9.5"). 4 vols. in 2. I: [4], [vii]–xxx, [2], 431, [1] pp. II: [6], 320 pp. III: [4], xxxvi, 344 pp. IV: [2], vi, 202, [2] pp.. 1822 First Glasgow printing of LeSeur and Jacquier's annotated edition, originally published in Geneva in 1739. Sometimes known as the "Jesuit edition" (although the two editors were actually Minim friars), this production of Sir Isaac Newton's seminal work of mathematics and physics incorporates extensive commentary, with consideration of Leibnizian calculus; Brunet describes this printing as particularly "belle et soignée, avec les figures insérées dans le texte." Binding: 19th-century calf, covers framed in acanthus and shell–motif blind roll and panelled in double gilt fillets with gilt-stamped corner fleurons, spines with gilt-framed compartments and gilt-stamped leather title and volume labels, board edges with gilt roll, turn-ins with gilt roll. All edges marbled. Provenance: Both volumes with early 19th-century inked ownership inscription of James Gallichan, St. John's College, in upper outer corner of front fly-leaf. Bindings as above, spines sunned (evenly and not unattractively), spines and edges with minor wear. Vol. I with original silk bookmark separated, laid in; one leaf with lower outer corner torn away. Both volumes with occasional mild offsetting and intermittent light to moderate foxing. An elegantly (and very soundly, strongly) bound example of a scientific landmark.

        Broadside. Begins: El General San Martin. Presencié la declaracion de la Independencia de los estados de Chile y el Perù ...

      Pueblo Libre [i.e., Lima]: No publisher/printer Folio (32 cm; 12.5"). [1] p.. 1822 Weary from ten years of war, sacrifice, and then the politics of the nascent Peruvian republic, Gen. San Martin, liberator of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, and Peru, here announces his retirement from public life. An Argentine by birth, San Martin's introduction to war happened not in America but in Europe where he was serving in the Spanish army against England, Portugal, and finally France. After the peninsula fell to the French, he returned to America and fought with and soon led one of the main rebel armies. The struggle lasted more than a decade, but on 12 July 1821, he took Lima from the Royalists, saw Peru officially declared independent on the 28th, and was himself named "Protector of Peru" on 3 August. Just about a year later, on 22 September 1822, via this document, he resigned his position and retired permanently from public life and service. "The presence of a lucky soldier . . . is feared by newly constituted states; [and] for my part, I am tired of hearing it said that I want to be the sovereign." "Peruvians: I leave you with an established national government; if you repose in it all of your confidence, count on triumph; if you don't, anarchy will devour you." And with that he left Peru, returned to Argentina briefly, then sailed to Europe where he lived in several cities, only once attempting to return to America, but always maintaining a keen interest in the fate of his native Argentina. Searches of WorldCat, NUC, CCILA, COPAC, and the Catálogo Colectivo del Patrimonio Bibliográfico locate two copies worldwide: one in the U.S., and one in Chile. There is a very old unverified report of a copy in the Biblioteca Nacional in Lima. Browning, age-toning, some crumpling and tattering. Small loss of paper along the wide bottom margin. No worming. Housed in a quarter red morocco clamshell box.

Sidler in München, links unten monogr. und dat. \"CH (18)21\", 35,5 x 52,5 cm (42,5 x 54 cm mit der Schrift). Dreyer 1a (gibt fälschlich als ausführenden Lithographen Johann Obernetter an, der jedoch nur die Schrift gezeichnet hat, vgl. Winkler 586); Abbildung in: München im Wandel der Jahrhunderte S. 48; Lentner 12309 (\"Äußerst seltenes prächtiges Blatt!\"); Pfister II, 42; München im Bild, Slg. Proebst 121; Winkler, Inkunabel der Lithographie 315, 31; Thieme-Becker Bd. XVI, S. 316. - Standpunkt für den Blick auf München ist ein Platz nahe der alten Johann-Baptist-Kirche. Jenseits der Praterinsel zeigt sich die Stadtsilhouette von der Hl. Geistkirche links, bis zur Theatinerkirche rechts. Im linken Bildrand hinter dem Hochufer erkennt man die Kürassierkaserne. Davor erstreckt sich die Isar im Mittelgrund über nahezu die gesamte Bildbreite. Etwas weiter zur Mitte hin verbindet die heute nicht mehr existierende Holzbrücke das Hochufer mit der Praterinsel. Diese ist jedoch durch den Baumwuchs des Isarhochufers nicht vollständig einsichtig. Ebenfalls heute nicht mehr vorhanden sind die auf dem Schwemmland erbauten Herbergen, welche dann über hundert Jahre später im 2. Weltkrieg zerstört wurden. Im Vordergrund ist das Isarhochufer zu sehen, auf dem sich linker Hand mehrere biedermeierlich sonntäglich gekleidete Spaziergänger auf dem Weg nach Bogenhausen befinden. - Zwei winzige Randeinrisse nahezu unsichtbar restauriert. - Äußerst seltenes Blatt und die schönste großformatige München-Ansicht des 19. Jahrhunderts. Die Ansicht auf München von Carl Friedrich Heinzmann war so populär, dass sie als Variation oder direkte Kopie von ambitionierten Laien in den unterschiedlichsten Techniken ausgeführt wurden. Zum Beispiel befindet sich im Stadtmuseum München in der Graphiksammlung diese Ansicht in Haarstickerei (45 x 56 cm) von einem 16 Jahre alten Mädchen im Jahre 1822 angefertigt. Ebenfalls existiert in der Gemäldesammlung des Stadtmuseums München eine entsprechende, unsignierte Ansicht in Öl auf Holz. Außerdem fungierte die Ansicht als Vorlage zur Bemalung von Porzellan. Heinzmann war einer der besten Porzellanmaler in der Manufaktur Nymphenburg. Versand D: 6,00 EUR BAYERN, München, Oberbayern

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM ADAMS TO JAMES MADISON, SENDING THE FORMER PRESIDENT WARM REGARDS AND ADAMS' RECENTLY PUBLISHED PAMPHLET]

      Washington, 1822. Minor toning, old folds, two separation neatly mended, tipped to a larger sheet. Very good. A warm and conciliatory letter from a future president of the United States to a former president. During his time as Secretary of State under Monroe, Adams writes to Madison at Montpelier. The letter reads, in full: "James Madison Esq Montpelier Virginia Washington 11 October 1822 Dear Sir, In requesting your acceptance of the copy herewith transmitted of a Collection of Documents recently published by me, I think it necessary to ask of your indulgence to overlook that part of it which is personally controversial. The transactions to which it relates having occurred during your Administration and the discussion involving in some degree principles and measures sanctioned by you, I have thought they would not be without interest to you, on that account, as well as because they are of no inconsiderable moment to the permanent welfare of the Union. I have much satisfaction also in being thus offered the occasion of tendering anew the grateful sense I entertain of that public confidence with which you honour'd me at a time when, as now appears, there were not wanting efforts then unknown to me to shake it. I remain with great Respect, Dear Sir, your very faithful and humble Servt. John Quincy Adams." The "Collection of Documents" to which Adams refers was THE DUPLICATE LETTERS, THE FISHERIES AND THE MISSISSIPPI. DOCUMENTS RELATING TO TRANSACTIONS AT THE NEGOTIATION OF GHENT (Washington, 1822; Shoemaker 7740). "This pamphlet was an answer to an attack on Adams by Jonathan Russell over proposals made during the Anglo-American negotiations at Ghent on the subject of the navigation of the Mississippi River. Adams's rebuke was so overwhelmingly successful that thereafter to destroy someone's reputation before the public was known as to " 'jonathanrussell' someone" (founders.archive.gov/documents/Madison/04-02-02-0506). Madison would have been keenly interested in the work, which did indeed discuss many policies and decisions of his administration. The present letter was previously sold at Parke-Bernet, Nov. 13 1968, lot 4. Mattern, et al, editors, THE PAPERS OF JAMES MADISON, RETIREMENT SERIES 2:586-587.

        Promenade Autour du Monde pendant les années 1817, 1818, 1819 et 1820, sur les corvettes du Roi l'Uranie et la Physicienne, commandés par M. Freycinet

      Paris: Leblanc, 1822. Some foxing (mostly moderate), previous owner's name to title page of the atlas in an old cursive hand, some quaint children's drawings in graphite to reverse of a few of the plates, atlas in later binding.. Two volumes, octavo, and small folio atlas; the atlas with separate title, map and 25 lithographic plates; text in mid-nineteenth century quarter green roan trade binding with gilt ornament, atlas in recent quarter green polished morocco. A good set of this significant narrative of the Freycinet expedition, one of the most important of all voyages to the Pacific. This wonderful, informal account of the Freycinet voyage is written in the form of letters to a friend by the voyage's official artist Jacques Arago, and has a fine series of lithographs by him: "these entertaining letters, written in a lively and witty literary style, provide vivid descriptions of the topography and the inhabitants of the Pacific islands" (Hill). Although a lavish publication in its own right, Arago's "unofficial" account appeared years before the much grander official account of Freycinet himself even began publication, and was so popular that it would have been the source of much of what was known about the voyage. Arago, by all accounts a mercurial and innovative fellow, broke away from the well-established 'canon' of voyage literature in preparing this narrative. Much of the cumbersome detail such as wind, tides and navigational information has been omitted, resulting in a lighter, and more readable book.The Uranie, with a crew of 125 under the command of Captain Louis de Freycinet, entered the Pacific from the west to make scientific observations on geography, magnetism, and meteorology. Arago was the artist of the expedition, which visited Western Australia, Timor, Hawaii, and New South Wales. The text is peppered with Arago's personal and insightful comments on the places they visited, with long sections devoted to Western Australia and especially to New South Wales, where Arago gives an interesting account of colonial society at the close of the Macquarie era. There are good descriptions of Sydney, and the explorers' visits to Camden and the Blue Mountains. The French were entertained handsomely by the governor and other members of the local aristocracy, with expeditions to the country estates of the Macarthurs, the Oxleys and the Kings the order of the day.Arago was particularly known for his lively and arresting images of the people he encountered, with a distinct preference for the unusual or the grotesque. This set is a variant issue of the first edition, with undated cancel title pages for the two text volumes; Forbes notes two variants (see 538) of which this is an example of the second. The text and plates of the atlas appear identical to the first edition with the title-page dated 1822.

        LE JAPON, OU VOYAGE DE PAUL RICORD, Aux Iles Du Japon, En 1811, 1812 et 1813 Sur

      Paris 1822, Nepveu. Original blue boards, very good, 2 vols.. 7 hand-colored fold-out engravings & plans, very good, small. size 9 x 14.5 cm., 271+214p., French text, two largest fold-. outs: 35 x 14 cm., 25 x 14 cm., the smallest 8.5 x 14 cm.. AN IMPORTANT EARLY RUSSIAN VOYAGE TO JAPAN TITLE cont: Accompagne de Planches Inedites, d'Apres les Dessins du Cabinet de Feu M. Titzingh, Ambassadur Hollandais en Chine, et Resident au Japon. An important and most early source for Russians in Japan. Nicely illustrated with cop- per etchings, some hand colored. Ricord was a Russian & mem- ber of the Golowin expedition on the "Diana" sent by the Tsar to Japan in 1809 to survey the the Japanese coast. As he went ashore in Japan he was captured and spend some two years imprisoned in Japan, along with the whole crew [1811- 1813]. The expedition surveyed the Northern islands around Yezzo [Hokkaido, Sahalin area] before they were captured. Like Golownin, Ricord made good use of his time in Japan and recorded for posterity valuable information about the Japan- ese, their customs, geographical situation, origins national character, sciences & arts, language, religion, ceremonies, marriage, education, sea products, industries, population, military state, government. Lavishly illustrated with superb fold-out hand-colored etched plates. This work was done dur- ing the time Japan was closed to the outside world, the only window being that in Nagasaki at the closed and controlled island of Deshima where the Dutch had established their East India Company Office. This work is remarkable in view of the fact that Ricord & others were prisoners of the Japanese and this work is highly void of any negative attitudes. Rather, he has written from his very positive impressions of Japan & the Japanese. This is an extremely obscure work, that was printed in a very small edition and not widely distributed. Seldom found on the market, renders this a most unusual ear- ly primary resource on Japan.See Wildes: ALIENS IN THE EAST; Brinkley: A HISTORY OF THE JAPANESE PEOPLE; and the books by Lensen for further background and details. Fascinating early primary resource. See H. Cordier: JAPONICA 464. A L W A Y S R A R E ! Color scans can be sent by email.
