        Astronomische Untersuchungen. I-II.Königsberg: Gebrüder Bornträger, 1841-42. First edition.

      "Bessel's measurements of positions for about 50,000 stars and rigorous methods of observation (and correction of observations) took astronomy to a new level of precision. He was the first to accurately measure the parallax, and hence the distance, of star other than the Sun. The achievements of Bessel were possible only because he first established the real framework of the universe by making accurate measurements of the positions and motions of the nearest stars, making corrections for various measuring errors caused by imperfections in his telescopes and by disturbances in the atmosphere." (Erik Geregersen, The Universe, p.55). "Modern astronomy of precision is essentially Bessel's creation. Apart from the large scope of his activity, he introduced such important novelties as the effective use of the heliometer, the correction for personal equation (in 1823), and the systematic investigation of instrumental errors. ... Especial attention should be directed to his Astronomische Untersuchungen (2 vols. 1841-42)" (Brittanica). <br/><br/> The Astronomische Untersuchungen consists of fourteen separate works by Bessel; some are re-worked editions of earlier works published in the Astronomische Nachrichten, and others appear here for the first time.<br/><br/> Honeyman 314.. 2 vols. 4to: 264 x 214 mm.

        The Beauties of Cambria

      London, 1823 Consisting of Sixty Views in North and South Wales; Each accompanied by a page of letter-press. In contemporary half leather with marbled boards, worn a little, corners and edges a little worn and bumped, title and tooling in gilt to black leather label, gilt tooling to leather edges. Spine has been relaid, keeping most of the old, lots of gilt tooling, edges have a little leather loss and are worn. Internally there is a small bookseller label and a bookplate to fep, title page has an ink name & inscription to head, dedication sheet, 3 pp list of subscribers, contents page followed by the B&W plates, light foxing to plate edges, 1 plate has red ink mark to extreme edge of margin, not paginated. Hughes, painter and engraver, was born at Pwll-y-gwichiad, near Llandudno. He was the son of Thomas Hughes and his wife, Jane Williams, and was baptized at Llandudno on 20 February 1790. His earliest known example of his work is a portrait (dated 1812) of the Revd John Evans (1723&ndash;1817) of Bala, Merioneth, which was engraved in the Drysorfa (vol. 3). Between 1819 and 1822 he worked at Meddiant Farm on a volume of wood-engravings entitled Beauties of Cambria (1823) which was published by subscription and which became his best-known work. All the views were engraved by himself, fifty-eight from his own drawings. His engraving style has been compared to that of Thomas Bewick. His treatment of natural objects was realistic, minute, and laborious, and his foliage always graceful. Four of these &lsquo;singularly beautiful wood engravings&rsquo; are reproduced in Chatto (Chatto, 538&ndash;40). See ODNB for a full Bio.

        Catalogus Librorum Officinae Danielis Elsevirii; Designans Libros, qui ejus typis et impensis prodierunt, aut quorum aliàs copia ipsi suppetit, et quorum auctio habebitur

      Elzevier woodcut device on title & divisional title. Unidentified illuminated coat-of-arms on the leaf following the preliminaries. 12 pp., 1 leaf, [38] pp. 8vo, a fine contemporary signed retrospective mosaic binding by P. Niedrée of red morocco, covers gold-tooled & inlaid with black morocco to a 16th-century strapwork design, spine similarly decorated in compartments and finely lettered, citron morocco doublures gold-tooled to an 18th-century dentelle design, gilt edges, uncut. Paris: Firmin Didot for J. Ch. Motteley, 1823. The unique copy printed throughout on vellum; the great collector of Elzeviers, J. Charles Motteley (1778-1850), sponsored this luxurious reprint of the extremely rare 1681 auction catalogue of the books printed at the Elzeviers&#39; Amsterdam house. A total of 101 copies of this reprint, beautifully printed by Firmin Didot, were privately issued (this copy on vellum, 20 copies on large paper, and 80 copies on Holland paper). This was Motteley&#39;s own copy and appears in his famous sale of books from the Elzevier press (Paris, 2 December 1824 and following days, lot 2069, 140 francs). At the time of the sale, this copy was simply bound ("plié"); the purchaser had it elaborately bound in the present binding and inserted the leaf with the unidentified illuminated coat-of-arms. The present binding by Niedrée, Thouvenin&#39;s successor, is a masterpiece of finishing, the exterior Renaissance style and the dentelles in the style of the 18th century. Motteley lived as a hermit, alone and isolated in a rundown apartment. He was afraid to make home repairs because of his fear of disturbing the treasures on which he had spent so much money. Very fine copy preserved in a red morocco pull-off case. Occasional browning at edges of leaves. With additional vellum endpapers. .

        Plate 5 - Tulip

      Edwin Dalton Smith (1823-1846)Illustration for Robert Sweet's The Florist Guide (London, 1827-32)Original watercolorPaper size: 9 1/2" x 8"Framed size: 14 1/4" x 13"Framed in museum quality gold leaf frames with archival materials including UV PlexiglassExcellent condition?These little miniatures, rich and jewelled in colour, are executed with great finesse; the plates in the printed work, pleasant though they are, give no idea of the quality of the originals.? ? Wilfrid Blunt, The Art of Botanical Illustration (London, 1950), p. 212. Smith executed these beautifully detailed watercolors to serve as originals for the engravings included in Robert Sweet?s The Florist?s Guide, a lavishly illustrated and important contribution to the array of splendid color-plate books devoted to the subject of botany in 19th-century England.  As long ago as 1950, Wilfrid Blunt, the outstanding authority on British botanical painting, recognized the quality of these watercolors, singling them out for outstanding praise in the above quotation.    Smith, for many years attached to the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, was one of the finest botanical artists of the time.  Accomplished in both botanical and portrait painting, Smith specialized in miniatures, a fact that accounts for the intricate detail of these watercolors.  He was taught by his father, Anker Smith (1759-1819), who was himself a noted engraver and miniaturist.  Smith lived in Chelsea (London), exhibiting much of his work from 1816-47.  He exhibited at least 66 works at the Royal Academy and an additional 13 at the Suffolk Street Galleries.  Smith?s skill in small-scale work is clearly evidenced by the exquisite detail of these superb watercolors.  Flamboyant tulips appear to rise off the page, their petals unfolding and spilling into the viewer?s space.  Marigolds, carnations, auriculas, and dahlias are all endowed with a distinct visual character, some with delicate veins traced along their translucent petals, others fully opaque and vivid.  Robert Sweet, Smith?s collaborator, was an enterprising horticulturist.  He was born at Cockington in Devon but soon moved to the London area, becoming a nurseryman successively at Stockwell (1810-1815), Fulham (1815-1819) and Chelsea (1819-182).  As a horticulturist rather than a scientific botanist or botanical artist, he devoted himself to new species with an eye to their suitability for growing in British gardens and hot-houses; he was more interested in the cultivation than the classification of exotic plants.  Most of the plants that he included in his publications were provided by nurserymen colleagues.
