         Manuscript Travel Journal of a "A Tour on the Continent" , Features a Visit to the Site of the Battle of Waterloo

      Netherlands, France, Belgium, circa 1823., 1823. Manuscript fair copy travel journal of a "A Tour on the Continent" lasting one month from 13 September 1821 to 11 October 1821, which features a visit to the site of the Battle of Waterloo, made by J.D. and W.C., the latter being William Chapman, an ancestral relation of British historian and economist Guy Patterson Chapman, possibly his paternal grandfather. Evidently with the original travel journal or paper notes in hand, this volume was written in 1823, or shortly thereafter, as the leafs are watermarked with that year, and features the bookplate of William Chapman to front pastedown, presumably the author. 8vo. 134 pages in manuscript, in a fine hand, with a later manuscript dedication to front leaf dated July 1892. Paginated in manuscript by the writer to upper margins. Half green roan over brown paper boards. Some wear to boards, otherwise in very good condition, a pleasing volume. The highlight of the journal is a contemplative walkabout on the field of Waterloo only six years after the great battle that defeated Napoleon's army, with nine pages of the journal describing his observations at the site, including remnants of war, and reflections on the critical manoeuvres and assaults. Also fascinating is Chapman's firsthand description of The Promenades Aeriennes or Aerial Strolls - the first modern rollercoaster - which was powered by horses and operated for seven years from 1817 to 1824 in Parc Beaujon, an amusement park on the Champs Elysees in Paris. A pleasing and detailed visual image of the old-time charm of notable continental cities, splendid tree-lined vistas and promenades which have since been commercially overtaken, ancient architecture and nineteenth century homes, citizens of three unique countries and their customs!. Manuscript.

The distance travelled was some 5,500 miles, and Franklin's narrative at once became a classic of travel literature. John Richardson and George Back, later famous Arctic explorers in their own right, were members of the expedition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Traité de l'association domestique-agricole. (Includes:) Sommaire du traité de l'association domestique-agricole ou attraction industrielle.

      Paris, London, Bossange père, P. Mongie ainé, M. Bossange et Comp., 1822-1823. - 8vo. 3 vols. LXIV, 592 pp. VIII, 648 pp. (2), 8, 8B-8E, 9-16, (1329)-1398, B1398-1398E, 1399-1448, (1) pp. Contemporary green half calf, spine gilt in compartments, gilt lettering, corners, gilt fillets on sides (some very light browning, first four leaves of the second work with a dampstain in the lower outer blank corner). First editions of Fourier's principal work, together with the very rare supplement. The first volume is signed by Fourier on verso of the half title. This is Fourier's most important work, containing "the essence of Fourier's doctrine" (D. O. Evans, Social Romanticism in France 1830-1848, p. 129.) The main thesis of the work is the discovery of "harmonie": the entire work endeavors to prove how this harmony can be established and how life and society should be designed so as to ensure success. In an attempt to garner further attention for his ideas, he published the "Sommaire du traité" in 1823, a supplement often lacking. Indeed, the work went virtually unnoticed. Although Fourier is often seen as a dreamer and fantasist, he anticipated Marx in many of his ideas: the theory of poverty and exploitation and their relation to the means of production can already be found with him, and the Marxist concept of the "all-round man" is an idea on which Fourier elaborately worked and which is the most important result of his "harmonie". Fourier was "emphatically a serious social thinker who contributed much of permanent value, not only to socialist and co-operative ideas, but also to the solution of the entire problem of work and of the incentives and human relations connected with it (cf. Kolakowsky, History of Marxism; Quack, de Socialisten, and G. D. H. Cole, A History of Socialist Thought). Numerous Fourierist communities were established, chiefly in the United States, where the way had been prepared by Robert Owen. Fourierism was introduced to the U.S. by Albert Brisbane, whose "Social Destiny of Man" appeared in 1840. Brisbane had studied in France under Fourier in 1834. In 1842 the New York Tribune, then edited by Horace Greeley, placed at his disposal a column in which for over a year he popularized Fourier's doctrines. - Contains, bound before the title page, the leaf "Instructions pour le Vendeur et l'Acheteur", and on the last page the "Appendice aux Conclusions" as well as two inserted quires, the first, B8-E8, containing "Banques Rurales", the second, B1398-1398E, "Carton à placer entre 1398 et 1399. Antienne du chap. III. La 4e phase de civilisation, I, 159". Extremely rare in this complete state, conforming with the details given by Del Bo. Bound in the "Sommaire" is an autograph letter signed by Charles Fourier, dated 9 Oct. 1836, written on paper of "La Réforme Industrielle ou Le Phalanstère" (2 pp. on bifolium with integral address panel, to Madame Caroline Thibaut, rue St. Victor, no. 76 in Paris). Fourier writes about his having met a lady friend of the recipient's: "[.] est une jolie femme, je m'en suis fort bien aperçu, et si j'avais eu 30 ans de moins je lui aurais dit ce que j'en pensais; mais j'ai trop à redouter que de pareils aveux ne soient indifferens à qui en serait l'objet [.]".

      Paris, Typographia de Firmin Didot, 1823. In-24 p. (mm. 105x65), p. pelle rossa coeva, eleganti cornici dorate e a secco ai piatti, ricca decoraz. e tit. oro al dorso, tagli dorati, risg. damascati, pp. (2),377,(3), con ritratto dell'Autore inciso da Fry e frontespizio pure inciso con vignetta che raffigura il naufragio del poeta mentre sta cercando di salvare il manoscritto dei Lusiadi. “Poema epico di Luis de Camoes (1524-1580), il maggior poeta portoghese, diviso in dieci canti. Voleva essere ed è rimasta l'epopea nazionale di un popolo “I Lusitani” o “I Portoghesi”. L'edizione principe uscì a Lisbona nel 1572. Argomento centrale è la prima spedizione di Vasco da Gama nel 1498, impresa che dopo una lunga serie di tentativi sfortunati aveva infine coronato di successo le speranze di pervenire dall'Occidente per via di mare al lontano Oriente favoloso, e che era apparsa degna di essere celebrata da un nuovo Omero o da un nuovo Virgilio”. Così Diz. Opere Bompiani, IV, p. 468. Con fiorit. intercalate nel t. ma certamente un buon esemplare.

         Printed land grant, completed in manuscript, to John Smith

      Sydney, 1823. In excellent condition.. Large printed vellum leaf, completed in manuscript, approx. 290 x 257 mm., verso blank except for ms. docket title; original folds, with well-preserved ribbon and paper seal attached. Fine original land grant signed by the sixth governor, for 200 acres in Methven, Van Diemen's Land, free of "all Taxes, Quit Rents, Services, and Acknowledgements whatsoever" for five years, thereafter a quit rent of four shillings per annum. Methven was a Tasmanian district name long since abandoned; it refers to the Oatlands area in central Tasmania.Sir Thomas Brisbane (1773-1860) succeeded Macquarie as governor of New South Wales, and held office from 1821 to 1825. Much of his work as governor was to reform the system of land grants which had mushroomed under Macquarie leaving confusion and boundary disputes prevailing among grantees. Brisbane instituted proper surveys and reformed the whole system of grants, ensuring that only those who were both willing to improve the land and had the capital to do so were successful in obtaining grants. This grant was witnessed by William Elyard junior, then second clerk in the colonial secretary's office, and Robert Crawford, principal clerk. Crawford was the builder of Clyde Bank in 1824: situated in the Rocks, Sydney, it was designed by Francis Greenway and is the oldest remaining house in the city of Sydney. The document was further signed by Brisbane's nemesis, Frederick Goulburn, as registrar. Goulburn was the first official colonial secretary to be appointed and took an active role in the issuing of land grants. His handling of grants was one of the major causes of the acrimony between himself and the governor, the cause of the collapse of Brisbane's administration and the governor's recall.

Volumes III-V contain several shorter works, including the short lyric poem "She Walks in Beauty," and the narrative poem, "Mazeppa." This particular set was published the year before Byron's death in 1824.. Early Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

         Narrative of a Voyage Round the World, in the "Uranie" and "Physicienne" corvettes, commanded by Captain Freycinet during the years 1817, 1818, 1819 and 1820

      Treuttel and Wurtz, London 1823 - Two parts in one volume, quarto, with a folding map as frontispiece and 25 engraved plates from original drawings by Arago; period-style full morocco, gilt. The first edition in English of this private narrative of the 1817-1820 Freycinet expedition to Australia and the Pacific - in fact the first appearance in English of any account of the whole voyage.The huge multi-volume official account of the voyage was far more serious and scientific in tone, and has never been published in full in English translation. Arago's book in this and many subsequent editions became one of the voyage best-sellers of the nineteenth century. Included in this English edition is the important official report to the French Academy of Sciences on the collections made in the course of the expedition: this was not included in the French edition published in Paris the previous year.Arago was the official artist on the voyage, and the lithograph plates here are all after his own drawings. He was a particularly sensitive interpreter of the native peoples encountered by the expedition, and writes in an entertaining style with his text reflecting his keen powers of observation. Throughout, he entirely avoids the conventional forms of the voyage narrative, ignoring the 'eternal repetition of winds, currents, longitude and latitude'. Long portions relate to Australia, firstly the visit to Western Australia and later descriptions of Sydney, the Blue Mountains, and meetings with Governor Macquarie and John Oxley. Arago's work provides an independent account of the time spent in Australian waters, with an excellent summary of life in Sydney and colonial society at the close of the Macquarie era. The French were entertained handsomely by the governor and other members of the local aristocracy.The expedition visited Hawaii in August 1819, at a crucial period in the history of the islands, visiting Maui, Hawaii and Oahu. Theirs was 'the last careful examination of the native culture, even as it was being dismantled by the abolition of the kapu system and less than a year prior to the arrival of the first American missionaries' (Forbes). Some spotting, but a very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Narrative of a Journey to the Shores of the Polar Sea, in the Years 1819, 20, 21, and 22. With an Appendix on Various Subjects Relating to Science and Natural History

      John Murray, London 1823 - xvi+768+[6 index] pages with 31 plates of which 11 are in color (9 in aquatint) and with four plates of plants (1 in color) preceding four large folding maps all dated March 1823, with an appendix which Sabin calls "valuable" in its contribution to the knowledge of the natural history of the area and errata slip tipped in. Quarto (10 3/4" x 8 1/2") bound in original contemporary tree calf with spine in gilt lettering. The plates were engraved by Finden, from drawings by Lieutenants Hood and Back. (Hill 635. Abbey Travel 635; Arctic Bibliography 5194; Books on Ice 3.1; Lande 1181) First edition first issue with the errata slip mounted to page 768. This expedition also known as the Coppermine Expedition of 1819–1822 had as its goal the exploration of the northern coast of Canada, which was accessed by way of the Coppermine River. The British expedition was organized by the Royal Navy as part of its attempt to discover and map the Northwest Passage. It was the first of three Arctic expeditions to be led by John Franklin, and also included George Back and John Richardson, both of whom would become significant Arctic explorers in their own right. The expedition was plagued by poor planning, bad luck and unreliable allies. The expected assistance from the local fur trading companies and native peoples was less forthcoming than expected, and the dysfunctional supply line, coupled with unusually harsh weather and the resulting absence of game, meant that the explorers were never far from starvation. Eventually the Arctic coast was reached, but barely 500 miles had been explored before the exhaustion of the party's supplies and the onset of winter forced them to turn back. The expedition made a desperate retreat across uncharted territory in a state of starvation, often with nothing more than lichen to eat. Eleven of the twenty strong party died amid accusations of murder and cannibalism before the survivors were rescued by native people of the Yellowknife tribe. In the aftermath of the expedition, John Franklin was much criticized by local fur traders for his haphazard planning and failure to adapt to the circumstances he faced, but in Britain he was received as a hero, fêted for the courage he had shown in extreme adversity. The expedition captured the public imagination, and in reference to a desperate measure he took while starving, he became known as "the man who ate his boots". Condition: Second contents leaf bound at end of preliminaries; lacks the half-title, rebacked, spine scuffed, rear board splitting along fore edge, end-papers renewed; infrequent minor foxing, occasional light offsetting from plates else about a very good copy.
