The two travelled significantly beyond their originally intended route, and ultimately visited Egypt, Nubia, Syria, and Asia Minor. With the company of William John Bankes and Thomas Legh, whom they met at Aleppo, they became the earliest modern explorers of Syria. Their letters were afterwards collected and published for private distribution in the this volume. A very good copy of a classic travel narrative.

        British Entomology; being illustrations and descriptions of the genera of Insects found in Great Britain and Ireland; containing coloured figures from nature of the most rare and beautiful species, and in many instances of the plants upon which they are found.

      - London, printed for the author, 1823-1840. 8 volumes. Royal-8vo (235 x 142mm). With 770 handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary red half morocco, gilt decorated and lettered spines, frontcovers with red morocco label 'Veritas vincit omnia J.W', gilt edges. An attractively bound copy of the first edition, with all plates finely engraved. In later editions many of the plates are reproduced in lithography, which makes them less attractive. This work was originally published in parts, and once described by Cuvier as 'the paragon of perfection'. The treated insects are depicted together with flowers or plants, which render the plates particularly charming. John Curtis was born in Norwich in 1791, son of an engraver, and his mother was described as a 'cultivator of flowers'. At the age of sixteen he went to work for a local solicitor and began to supplement his income by collecting and selling insect specimens to the gentlemen entomologists of the day and learnt the art of scientific illustration. His first published illustrations appeared in Kirby and Spence's bestseller 'Introduction to Entomology' (1815-26). In 1817 he went to London where he met many of the leading natural historians of the day, such as Sir Joseph Banks."John Curtis is described as the first entomologist to earn a living, albeit a rather poor one, as a scientist. He liked to travel although it proved difficult because of his financial problems but he collected extensively in Britain, Ireland and Europe. In 1825 he travelled to Scotland by steam packet and returned by land, walking most of the way and collecting insects and adding thirty-two new species to the British list - all material for his dream work 'British Entomology'" (Gilbert p. 142). A systematically bound copy.Provenance: armorial bookplate of John Waterhouse Halifax and another bookplate 'Queen Margaret's School, presented by Mrs. Doherty Waterhouse'.Horn & Schenkling 4184; Nissen ZBI, 1000.

        The Punishments of China, Illustrated With Explanations in English and French

      Printed for William Miller by W. Bulmer.. Title page dated1801. 6 leaves watermarked 1823.. 22 hand coloured stipple engravings, title-pages and text in English and French, all edges gilt, handsome contemporary decorative leather gilt binding a little worn in places, light wear extremities, some occasional light browning, some offsetting from plates onto the text as usual. Holes in the margins of two leaves of text, one tear has an old rather clumsily repair. Armorial bookplate of Martin Stapylton Esq of Myton in the County of York AD 1817 laid down upper paste down. 35 x 26cm. Folio. Abbey 532. Lust 712 (1808 edition). A handsome and generally bright copy of this well known work. Text that accompanies each plate and the preface in both English and French. An interesting work with finely executed colour plates. "The view expressed in the preface was that legal torture, was an instrument of tyranny, an attitude perhaps indicative of pressures in Britain for legal reform." Lust - Western Books on China Published up to 1850. This work was a popular title in Europe in the first years of the 19th century and was reissued over many years, as the use of the title page of the first edition and later watermarked leaves in this copy illustrates. In fact foreign interest in the "exotic" or shocking aspects of China continued for over a hundred years. Images showing Chinese punishments and torture, likely based on this work, appeared in pith painted albums as well as in other forms through into the 20th century. .

The second lithograph-illustrated book printed in America. The plates are by Henry Stone, "one of the earliest and most elusive of all the lithographers" [Peters]. "The plates represent 'the principal pieces of timber used in building a 74 gun ship of the line'. Though, because of the subject, the plates are necessarily subdued, they are genuinely colored. It seems that getting out the right timber for all old time war ships was a highly scientific matter; and the tall old pines of New England must have been wonderful masts " [Bennett]. Byron Diman [1795-1865] was born in Bristol, Rhode Island. He served as Rhode Island's 19th governor, serving from 1846-1847; he also served several terms in both Rhode Island's House of Representatives and Senate.

        The Naval History of Great Britain from the year MDCCLXXXIII to MDCCCXII - Five Volumes

      C Rice, Mount Street, Berkeley Square, London 1823 - Full set complete. A RARE FULL SET of the FIRST EDITION of this very popular Naval History of Great Britain. Fully leather bound in green morocco. Stamped gilt decoration. The spine has four ridges. There are decoration and titling on alternate panels. The spines are calm, dignified. The entire set is very clubbable, charming and handsome. Please note that a plate of the Spanish Main is missing from volume five (although there is no evidence of removal). This series was most popular and reprinted many times: Brenton's history was personal (he was an experienced sailor and navy man), at times controversial. All have marbled front and end papers. All have an ex-libris plate for Francis Dick (of the old Scots family). There are stamps also indicating ownership of the 'Stonehouse Reading Room'. The history covers one of the most thrilling and important in European and British history and it is a compulsive read - this set gives the read ample enjoyment. Volume 1 (printer: J F Dove, St John's Square: 1823). The boards are sound with some scuffing, wear and marks to the edges and faces. These are benign. The spine has shelving and handling wear to the body, head and foot. Inside, the frontispages have some damp stains at the spine corners - but these do not affect the text. The pages - as with the other volumes - have printer markings at the bottom. The pages are clear, confident and eager. Covers: the loss of American colonies, the state of French, Spanish and British navies at the end of the American war, Holy Roman Empire ambitions, Bligh and the Mutiny, the death of Emperor Joseph and Sweden's Gustavus, Cornwallis, Indian Ocean, Egypt, the Cape, Laval. Vol. 2: a contented, comfortable copy. The boards have some markings, some wear to the edges and spine. But these are mild. The boards are sound and sure. The pages are firm, clean, clear and certain. Covers: West Indies action, Bonaparte's star soars, St Helena to attack the Cape!, France and America, Nelson is on the scene, Battle of the Nile. Volume 3: (1824). The boards are gallant with wear to the board-faces, corners and spine. The back board has been stained by damp at its bottom spine edge. There are some very mild consequent damp marks to the very final pages at the binding edge. The contents are mild and generous. Brenton makes amends in his preface. Cockburn, Napoleon, improvements to the Navy, French treatment of prisoners, invasion threat!, Nelson to the rescue, imperial woes in the Americas, West Indies and the Cape of Good Hope. Volume 4 (1825). There are scatterings of age marks within. The boards are masculine. There is some wear to the corners and spine. The boards are rubbed and lightly marked. They are serene. France the enemy1, India, European affairs, Cochrane, the action moves to all of the Americas, Danish war, a Bernadotte elected to the throne of Sweden, George III's illness. Volume five and Brenton brings his labours to an end. An aged copy. The boards beam genially with some marks and wear, scuffing and rubbing. The guttering along the reverse title page is cracked. Nonetheless the binding is firm and the pages are tight. The pages are competent and diligent and mild-mannered. They have some age marks. The Americans become disagreeable and plan horrid things, Wellington, Napoleon sees Elba and escapes and thus sees St Helena instead, the death of the King!, Bonaparte sees the pearly gates as does Queen Caroline, the British become adventurous in the time of peace. A most pleasant set for reference, reading and reception. Oh! the happy owner! fk [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Randeinrisse hinterlegt, am Rand leicht fleckig.- Das dritte Blatt des zweiten Bandes der zweiten Lieferung der Sammlung denkwürdiger Gebäude des Mittelalters in Deutschland. Domenico Quaglio entstammte einer ursprünglich aus Oberitalien stammenden Künstlerfamilie und war deren bedeutendster Vertreter. Nach erster Unterweisung durch seinen Vater, den Theatermaler und Architekten Guiseppe Quaglio (1747-1828) absolvierte er eine Ausbildung zum Kupferstecher und Lithographen an der Münchner Kunstakademie bei C.E.C. Hess (1755-1822) und J.M. Mettenleiter (1765-1853). Ab 1803 war er am Hoftheater in München tätig, dort 1809-1814 Hoftheatermaler, zudem entwarf er Bühnendekorationen, später erfolgte die Ernennung zum bayerischen Hofmaler. Er gilt als Begründer des Münchner Vedutenbildes und unternahm in diesem Kontext zahlreiche Reisen durch Deutschland, an den Rhein, in die Niederlande, nach Frankreich, Italien und der Schweiz, um vor allem mittelalterliche Baudenkmäler zu zeichnen. 1823 war er Mitbegründer der Münchner Kunstvereins, des ersten in Deutschland. 1832 erhielt er von Kronprinz Maximilian den Auftrag, den Wiederaufbau und die Ausschmückung des Schlosses Hohenschwangau zu leiten. Die bis 1837 andauernden Arbeiten hierzu strapazierten den Künstler derart, daß er kurz vor der Vollendung zusammenbrach und verstarb.

Let me have a hackney coach: "Si Signore, Signore si," resounded from a crowd of Facchini, and donkies were immediately brought. Is there nothing else to be had? yes, camels, but neither without some trouble. The camelliers and asiniers commence fighting for the base lucre of a few paras, half farthings - they fight so well for these that they deserve encouragement. At length, mid the show of camels and donkies, of the two evils I choose the least." A highly readable and informative account. x, 340pp with two large folding plates, one being Jerusalem from the Cave of the Apostles on the Mount of Olives, the other Mount Sinai Convent. Rebound in recent times in three quarter calf with marbled boards.. First Edition. Three-Quarter Calf. Very Good. 215x135mm.

        De las Prisiones consideradas en su actual estado y según las reformas que deben experimentar con respecto a la Higiene, a la Moral y a la Economía Política. Obra escrita en francés y traducida por L.

      Cádiz, imprenta de la Casa de Socorro, 1823. - Petit in-4. 1f. IV. 100pp. Demi-veau postérieur (Domenech). Première Edition Espagnole de cet important ouvrage du statisticien et philanthrope français Louis René Villermé (1782-1863), qui fut l'un des grands précurseurs de la sociologie moderne. "Les travaux de Villermé sont reconnus comme des étapes très importantes du développement de la démographie et de la statistique. Une première étude sur les conditions de vie des prisonniers (1820), laquelle s'insérait dans un projet de réforme du régime pénitentiaire, rend Villermé célèbre. Il entreprend ensuite des études comparées de la mortalité et de la mortalité infantile suivant les milieux sociaux, desquelles il ressort que la condition ouvrière dans les villes entraîne une mortalité très supérieure à la moyenne" (Encyclopædia Universalis). La traduction en espagnol de cet ouvrage précurseur de Villermé s'inscrit dans le cadre du mouvement d'idées libérales qui avaient conduit à la promulgation de la première Constitution Espagnole à Cádiz en 1812; l'année 1823, date de publication du présent ouvrage, marquait le renversement du régime et le retour de l'absolutisme.

        NEW YORK FROM HEIGHTS NEAR BROOKLYN. [with:] NEW YORK FROM WEEHAWK

      New York, 1823. Two large folio aquatint engravings, each 52 x 68cm. Both images have been professionally cleaned and backed, a few minor surface abrasions, considerable toning, but decent copies of the first states of these rare views. Archivally matted, protected with Mylar sheets. William Guy Wall published his two views of New York in the summer of 1823. "They are two of the most beautiful views we have of New York City in the early nineteenth century" - Deak. The Brooklyn view, taken from Brooklyn heights, shows the growing city across the East River. Wall took great care to accurately render the buildings on the opposite shore, observable in great detail. The view from Weehawk reverses the view, looking at the west side of town along the Hudson. "Both views are exceedingly well-balanced, and both retain an eighteenth- century elegance in the clarity and fluid handling of the topographic projection..." - Deak. The plates were engraved by John Hill, and are here present in their first states. Stokes asserts that the Brooklyn view is considerably rarer than the one from Weehawk.

Minor wear to corners. this book narrates the disastrous expedition undertaken by Naval officer and Arctic explorer Sir John Franklin up the Coppermine River in North America. Franklin (1786-1847) and nineteen others set out in 1819, initially with guides from the Hudson Bay Company until the journey continued overland, when they relied on Native Americans as guides. The party ran short of supplies and, lacking adequate knowledge for survival, were reduced to eating lichens. One of the party was suspected of eating the bodies of the nine men who had died of exposure and starvation, and two more were killed in a subsequent skirmish. Franklin undertook a second, more successful Arctic journey before setting out on his final expedition of 1845, which ended in tragedy and enduring mystery. (Cambridge) From the library of John Keate D.D. (1773 - March 5, 1852) who was an English schoolmaster. He was educated at Eton and Kings College, Cambridge, where he had a brilliant career as a scholar; taking holy orders, he became an assistant master at Eton College and in 1809 he was elected headmaster. The discipline of the school was very unsatisfactory to Dr Keate who took stern measures to improve it. His partiality for the birch became a by-word, but he succeeded in restoring order and strengthening the weakened authority of the masters. Keate was made a canon of Windsor in 1820. He died at Hartley Westpall, Hampshire, of which parish he had been rector since 1824. Also from the library o Mary Patterson Davidson with her bookplate. Franklin's narrtive includes descriptioons of the country the native Indians, the murder of Robert Hood, and his great disappointment in failing to find a northwest passage.

        OBSERVATIONS UPON THE FLORIDAS

One of two issues of the first edition, without apparent priority. The other issue numbers only 197 pages, and this longer issue seems to be the scarcer of the two. This is one of the first detailed accounts of Florida published in the United States after the acquisition of the territory from Spain the preceding year. Vignoles made several extensive trips in Florida, and describes the geography, climate, soil, Indian tribes, and British and Spanish settlements and activities. Also included is a printing of the Adams-Onìs Treaty by which the Floridas were sold to the United States. Vignoles produced a map of Florida as well, but it was sold separately from the book, and does not normally appear with it. HOWES V97, "aa." SERVIES 1179. SABIN 99608. AMERICAN IMPRINTS 14782.

        Cartas de un americano sobre las ventajas de los gobiernos republicanos federativos.

      During his exile and residence in Philadelphia Vicente Rocafuerte, a man prominent in the political affairs of Mexico and Ecuador, wrote these letters to explain to Spanish America the American federalist system of government. The spur for writing was his having read Juan Egaña's "Del federalismo y de la anarquia" (Santiago de Chile: Imprenta nacional, Abril de 1823). In one letter he compares and contrasts article by article the U.S., Mexican, and Guatemalan constitutions. Provenance: Alberto Pareño's copy with his initials on the spine of the book.

        Liber amoris: Or, the New Pygmalion.

      Printed for John Hunt 1823 - FIRST EDITION, with engraved title-page, ink with a greenish tint, with a vignette portrait of Sarah Walker after Hazlitt's drawing, some foxing, pp. [iv], 192, 8vo, uncut in the original pink boards, spine of drab paper, printed label partly defective, rubbed, and corners worn, sound. Keynes calls the pink boards the first binding: the label he calls for is longitudinal, but here we have the later issue label. 'In the end Hazlitt could only purge himself of the abortive affair by writing a book about it, Liber amoris ('Book of love'), published in May 1823. It consisted of dialogues between "W" and "S" written in a style of extreme sensibility, together with edited versions of Hazlitt's own letters to his friends about his feelings for Sarah. Emotionally raw, at times vulgar and embarrassing, Liber amoris played into the hands of his enemies in the right-wing press. Though published anonymously, it was quickly identified as Hazlitt's and he was made a laughing-stock for his infatuation with "the tailor's daughter"' (ODNB). (Keynes 67)

        Practical Hints on Decorative Printing, with illustrations engraved on wood and printed in colours at the type press

      published for the Proprietor by Messrs. Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown [and others], London 1823 - (14 3/4 x 10 3/4 inches). Letterpress title printed in red and black within a typographic border, 3pp. list of subscribers. Additional title printed in gold and colours (on india paper mounted), dedication to Earl Spencer printed in colours (on india paper mounted), 52 plates (most printed in two or more colours, one heightened with gold, and including the 9 cancelled plates on 5 sheets), 3 illustrations, and 6 colour-printed head-pieces. Lacks 1p. Address dated 25 March 1823. Foxing throughout. Later 19th century full black morocco, covers elaborately bordered in gilt, spine with semi-raised bands, lettered in the second and third compartments, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, gilt edges, expert repair along front joint Provenance: Joseph Gualtieri (bookplate); Gordon Abbott (bookplate) Rare large paper copy of Savage's extraordinary tour-de-force: an influential and beautiful work on colour-printing, a precursor to Baxter's work, which was responsible for the revival of interest in printing from relief blocks. The whole edition was to have been limited to no more than 335 copies, but in the end only 227 copies were subscribed for and this can be stated with certainty as being the actual number produced as Savage deliberately destroyed the blocks in order to ensure that no more copies could be printed. The edition was issued in two forms: 127 copies in quarto (the Abbey copy is 10 1/8 inches tall) at 5 guineas and 100 copies on large paper, as here, at 10 guineas. The underlying reason for the work is quite prosaic: Savage wished to present his new oil-free printing ink in a form which allowed for its full potential to be demonstrated. The result is a masterpiece of early colour printing. "Savage's magnum opus, which was announced in 1815, appeared in parts between 1818 and 1823. It is both a highly idiosyncratic volume and a notable landmark in the history of color printing from wood, anticipating Baxter by about ten years" (Ray, The Illustrator and the Book in England ). The technical aspects of the work are truly extraordinary: one highlight amongst many is a colour print, which Burch notes is printed from twenty-nine separate blocks, and which therefore qualifies as "the most complicated print ever printed in colours from wood blocks."
