        LETTERS WRITTEN FROM COLOMBIA, DURING A JOURNEY FROM CARACAS TO BOGOTA, AND THENCE TO SANTA MARTHA, IN 1823

      London: G. Cowie, 1824. 20th-century tan buckram, spine gilt, with a wax seal presumably covering a library call number. Bookplate removed from front pastedown. Light scattered foxing. A good, solid copy. Published anonymously but attributed by the British Museum to John Hankshaw, while THE ECONOMIC LITERATURE OF LATIN AMERICA, Palau, and OCLC assign authorship to Francis Hall. This record of a journey was published, according to the anonymous author, due to the desire "so universally felt in Great Britain of information as to the actual condition of the Republic of Colombia. The more that rich and beautiful country becomes known, the greater will be the interest excited towards it among all Europeans. So extensive a field for the exercise of European industry and intelligence has not for ages presented itself." A travel journal composed in the form of letters, the author describes the landscape, the inhabitants, the climate and soil, natural resources, commodities, government, and the possibilities for commerce. The highly detailed map of Greater Colombia is "taken from Humboldt and various other recent authorities." ALBERICH 1336. NAYLOR 85. SABIN 14598. PALAU 112082.

        Composition de la tête osseuse de l'homme et des animaux. [Suivi de] Sur l'adgustal, l'un des os de la voûte palatine

      (182 - pagination multiple, une (Paris, Annales des sciences naturelles), (1824), in-8, pagination multiple, une planche et un tableau, les deux dépliants reproduits en lithographie, percaline prune à la bradel, dos lisse, titre doré en long, Édition originale, sous forme d’extraits, de ce rare résumé des travaux de Saint-Hilaire sur le crâne ; ils proviennent du tome III des Annales des sciences naturelles (1824). La « Composition de la tête osseuse de l'homme et des animaux » fera l'objet d'un tiré à part destiné à la vente en librairie (Tastu). Geoffroy-Saint-Hilaire y étudie la « composition de la tête osseuse, montre le crâne formé de sept vertèbres, fait l'historique des travaux publiés sur le même sujet, et donne la concordance de sa nomenclature et de ses déterminations avec celles de Cuvier ». (« Vie, travaux et doctrine scientifique d'Étienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire » par son fils Isidore, p. 447). L’exposé s’accompagne d’un tableau synoptique et d’une planche détaillant la composition de la tête osseuse du crocodile, d’après un crâne retiré d’une momie trouvée par Geoffroy-Saint-Hilaire dans les catacombes de Thèbes en Égypte ; c’est à partir de cette découverte que l’auteur a décrit une nouvelle et petite espèce vivant dans le Nil, le crocodylus suchus (planches n° 9 et 16 de l’Atlas). L'exposé sur l'adgustal, pages 491 à 506 ; peut figurer comme un "appendice" à l'article précédent. En 1824, Geoffroy-Saint-Hilaire (1772-1844) a derrière lui une carrière déjà importante ; il a acquis la célébrité en 1818 avec la parution de la « Philosophie anatomique » et a énoncé de nombreux principes majeurs, avant de s’intéresser aux pièces paléontologiques et à la description des fossiles. À partir de 1825, il s’engage, contre son confrère et ami Cuvier dans la controverse dite « des crocodiles de Caen » qui le conduira à se prononcer en faveur des thèses transformistes. Exemplaire provenant de la bibliothèque de l’ethnologue et anthropologue Ernest-Théodore Hamy (1842-1908), avec sa jolie étiquette ex-libris à l'orang-outan, reproduction de la belle gravure de l'Homo sylvestris parue dans les Observationum medicarum de Nicolas Tulp en 1641.

II: xviii, [2], 503, [1] pp.; 11 plts.. 1824–25 First major appearance of Walton's beloved treatise in combination with his collected lives of authors, the set (here in its stated second edition) charmingly illustrated with copper-engraved plates and wood-engraved in-text illustrations.

Fore-edges: Angler with two jaunty 17th-century gentlemen and their rods and lines, Lives with a portrait of Walton, both paintings within arabesque frames. Bindings: Straight-grained maroon morocco, covers framed in gilt triple fillets, spines with gilt-stamped author and title; board edges with gilt roll, turn-ins with gilt double fillets. All edges gilt. Provenance: Front pastedowns each with armorial bookplate of collector John Train; front fly-leaves with early inked ownership inscriptions of Lucy S. Sanford and T. (or J.?) Lister. Bound as above, rubbed at joints/extremities, hinges (inside) tender; text block of vol. II starting to separate from spine and front free endpaper with outer edge chipped. Pages generally clean; moderate foxing to some plates, with offsetting to surrounding pages. => Unusual and very attractive.

        Remember Me! A New Years Gift or Christmas Present, 1825.

      Small 8vo. London: I. Poole, [1824]. Small 8vo, xxiv, 372 pp. With an engraved frontispiece, 4 full-page engravings including one by Blake, 8 hand-colored botanical plates, 8 plates of engraved music, and a calendar with an engraved title-page and 6 plates. Publisher’s de luxe original full brown polished calf, covers panelled in gilt, backstrip richly gilt-panelled with the binder’s name at the foot of the spine “Purgold”, slightly worn, occasional small spots on plates as usual, a very good copy of the de luxe issue. First edition of one of the rarest of all of the plates designed and engraved by Blake. The title exists in three states: dated 1825, dated 1826, and with the date on the title removed -- only one other copy thus is known. Three copies in all have been sold in the last 30 years: Sotheby's Belgravia, 3 Feb. 1976, lot 3, Sotheby's London, 6 June 1991, lot 97, and a copy sold privately by Maggs Bros. to Robert N. Essick replacing this copy from Essick purchased at the 1976 sale. The plate, titled ‘The Hiding of Moses’ was the last plate designed and engraved by Blake himself for a commercial publication; the original drawing ‘Moses placed in the Ark of Bulrushes’, which closely echoes a tempera now untraced that was executed some 25 years earlier, is in the Huntington Library. BB #490A. Easson and Essick, William Blake Book Illustrator, XI (recording the Rosenwald proof and 3 copies). Bentley (in the U of T Quarterly 2011) noted: “The gift book Remember Me! with Blake's wonderful engraving of the ‘Hiding of Moses’ was more remarkable for its decorations than for its literary contents. Of the twenty-four copies recorded, each differs from the others in the pattern of binding, colour of fore-edges, endpapers, and the decorated sleeve-case. Despite this varied elegance, the work had only a modest sale, and the same sheets were re-issued in 1825 for the 1826 gift-giving season. This paucity of sales may be related to the fact that the publisher John Poole had little experience of book distribution. His speciality was as a maker of Marble Paper and Fancy Pocket-Books, not in selling them.”

"Following the completion of his investigation of natural fats, Chevreul wrote a work of a more general nature, Considérations générales sur l'analyse organique (1824), which is a reflection on the many years of research with organic material. Here Chevreul considered the methods of research in organic chemistry, methods that he himself used with such success in his investigations. The primary analytical problems were how to determine whether one had a pure substance or a mixture and how to resolve the frequently complex animal or plant material into its immediate principles. It was Chevreul who placed this immediate analysis on a rigorous basis. He gave precise criteria for what constituted a pure organic compound and presented for the first time a clear and accurate account of the methods of immediate analysis that must necessarily precede elementary analysis."(DSB III p. 243) Malgré le cachet annulé de l'Institut Catholique de Paris et quelques rousseurs sur l'ensemble du volume, bon exemplaire grand de marges et avec ses fragiles couvertures.

        Evils of quarantine laws, and non-existence of pestilential contagion: deduced from the phaenomena of the plague of the Levant, the yellow fever of Spain, and the cholera morbus of Asia.

      London: T. and G. Underwood; Callow and Wilson (&c. &c.) 1824. 8vo., xxxii + 444pp., wanting the half-title, well bound in relatively recent half calf over cloth boards with the original gilt leather backstrip reused, marbled edges. A very good copy. First edition. Wellcome IV p.15. Charles Maclean (ca. 1765 - ca. 1825), a widely travelled physician (Spain, Turkey, India, the Levant), was for some years lecturer on the diseases of hot climates to the East India Company. He evidently became something of an expert on communicable ('pestilential') diseases and their prevention. Among his publications were On the state of vaccination in 1810> (1810), The results of an investigation respecting epidemic and pestilential diseases> (1817), Suggestions for the prevention and mitigation of epidemic and pestilential diseases> (1817), and Remarks on the British quarantine laws> (1823). He was evidently highly sceptical of the quarantine laws on the basis of his own research which suggested that epidemic diseases were not contagious and therefore that 'the quarantine measures then imposed routinely in most Mediterranean ports against vessels sailing from the Levant had no basis in medical fact'.

        Rosa Centifolia mutabilis. Rosier unique

      Paris: Firmin Didot, 1824. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Bessin, a large paper copy. More than with any other painter, Redouté's flowers are alive, and always shown at the ephemeral moment of their greatest beauty. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre Italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually to Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full-time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's scientific understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in Les Roses from which this work comes. Redouté together with Claude-Antoine Thory, an ardent botanist and collector of roses, have together in Les Roses produced a work not only of great artistic merit, but also an invaluable scientific record as well. `Redouté and Thory knew, described and figured almost all the important roses known in their day. Included were many of the key ancestors of our present-day roses. The plates in Les Roses have artistic value, botanical and documentary value, both for the species and cultivars still surviving and for those that have disappeared' (Gisele de la Roche). The roses used as specimens for the work were taken from the collections of Thory, the Malmaison gardens, and from other collections around Paris. Many of the flowers were novelties in Redouté's time, and a number were dedicated to the memory of his friends and acquaintances, such as l'Héritier de Brutelle and Ventenat. Cf. Cleveland Collections 807; cf. Dunthorne p 232; cf. Hunt, Redoutéana 19; Hunt, Printmaking in the Service of Botany 25; Nissen BBI 1599; Pritzel 7455; Ray, French 89; Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8747.

Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in Les Roses from which this work comes. Redouté together with Claude-Antoine Thory, an ardent botanist and collector of roses, have together in Les Roses produced a work not only of great artistic merit, but also an invaluable scientific record as well. `Redouté and Thory knew, described and figured almost all the important roses known in their day. Included were many of the key ancestors of our present-day roses. The plates in Les Roses have artistic value, botanical and documentary value, both for the species and cultivars still surviving and for those that have disappeared' (Gisele de la Roche). The roses used as specimens for the work were taken from the collections of Thory, the Malmaison gardens, and from other collections around Paris. Many of the flowers were novelties in Redouté's time, and a number were dedicated to the memory of his friends and acquaintances, such as l'Héritier de Brutelle and Ventenat. Cf.

        Rosa Rubiginosa nemoralis / L'Eglantine des bois [Small-flowered Eglantine]

      Paris: Firmin Didot, 1824. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Langlois. Very good condition. More than with any other painter, Redouté's flowers are alive, and always shown at the ephemeral moment of their greatest beauty. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre Italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually to Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full-time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's scientific understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in Les Roses from which this work comes. Redouté together with Claude-Antoine Thory, an ardent botanist and collector of roses, have together in Les Roses produced a work not only of great artistic merit, but also an invaluable scientific record as well. `Redouté and Thory knew, described and figured almost all the important roses known in their day.

        Noah Webster Autograph Manuscript: A rare page from the original draft of Noah Webster's 1828 "An American Dictionary of the English Language" – the standard reference for American English

      - Autograph Manuscript (unsigned), 2 pages, 8" x 10", no date but circa 1824-1825, being a portion of a draft of An American Dictionary of the English Language (1828) with extensive edits and emendations throughout. A choice selection of definitions ranging from "Bitter-sweet" to "Bivouac." Expected folds, minor losses affecting seven words in text expertly repaired with archival tissue, else fine condition. Noah Webster's dictionary at once became, and has remained, the standard English dictionary in the United States. Webster was an ardent nationalist who wanted to stress the political separation from Britain by cultivating a separate American language. Under the influence of his friend Benjamin Franklin, he gave many printed American words a distinctive appearance. The bulk of Webster’s manuscript—over 450 leaves—now resides in the Pierpont Morgan Library—and rarely appear for sale, particularly as a complete page. Webster’s dictionary is the cornerstone of the brand of English spoken in America today, and this manuscript offers fabulous insight into Webster’s discerning editorial process as he compiled the foundational text. Offered with a copy of the corresponding page from the 1828 edition of Webster's dictionary.

Numbers printed as headers to all pages of music: "(10)" to op. 4, "(14)" to op. 14, "(15)" to op. 34, "(16)" to op. 36. Somewhat soiled and browned. A partially uncut copy. . A later edition, part of a complete edition of Fesca's string quartets. Rare. Frei-Hauenschild, p. 448 (erroneously citing the present edition as a reprint of Richault's, which is actually later). Copies of opp. 34 and 36 at Biblioteca nazionale centrale, Florence; no other copies of opp. 4 and 14 recorded. Hanry bought the business of Benoît Pollet in 1824, selling the company to Richault in 1832 (see Devriès-Lesure II, p. 209). Devriès-Lesure does not comment on plate numbers, neither of Pollet nor of Hanry, but as no copies of editions of Fesca's music by Pollet are known, it can be safely assumed that the present edition was newly engraved by Hanry. Pagination, plate numbers, and headers indicate that Hanry issued Fesca's quartets as a complete series; the gaps point to the opp. 1-3 quartets (nos. 1-9, with plate numbers 130 A-C) and the opp. 7 and 12 quartets (nos. 11-13, with plate numbers 130 E-F). The Richault edition of Fesca's quartets is not a reprint of the present edition. Op. 4 was first published by S.A. Steiner (Vienna, 1816), op. 14 by F. Hofmeister (Leipzig, 1819), opp. 34 and 36 by Simrock (Bonn, 1824; "1814" for op. 34 in Grove Music Online and MGG is an error, as confirmed by Markus Frei-Hauenschild, author of both articles). "FescaÂ’s reputation as a composer was based primarily on his string quartets and quintets. Between 1816 and 1826 he was the most frequently reviewed composer in this genre in the Allgemeine musikalische Zeitung, and his works were highly regarded by Spohr, Nägeli and Rochlitz, among others. Weber based his ideas on progressive contemporary chamber music on FescaÂ’s quartets, since they combined the detailed accompaniment figuration and complex thematic development of the Classical string quartet with the harmonic richness and virtuosity demanded at that time. Also characteristic is his gentle and amiable style, though the quartets opp.7, 12 and 14 display the more extrovert manner of the quatuor concertant." Markus Frei-Hauenschild in Grove Music Online.

        SULLA FORMAZIONE DELLA GRANDINE. Memoria. Con un Articolo sul medesimo argomento del Sig. Canonico Angelo Bellani

      Tipogr. Manini 1824 In - 8 p. (mm. 225x140), brossura muta mod., pp.Tipogr. Marini, 170,(2). Questa interessante Memoria del Volta è così suddivisa: ?Sulla formazione della grandine - Sul periodo de? temporali e sul vento freddissimo ed istraordinariamente secco che si fa sentire molte ore dopo a quelli che scaricarono grandine?. Riferisce il Manini nell?Avviso al lettore ?..non essendo ancora stata finora inserita che in opere voluminose, ne restava riservata la lettura a pochi studiosi di uno dei principali fenomeni dell?elettricità atmosferica. Prescindendo dall?opinione recentemente divulgata da questo sommo maestro nell?elettrica scienza, l?origine da esso già assegnata alla formazione dei temporali grandinosi.. servirà a comprovare, che quanto può essere sicuro l?uso dei Parafulmini frankliniani per preservare le case, altrettanto inefficace deve riescire l?applicazione dei Paragrandini massime se di paglia alle campagne?. Alla Memoria del Volta segue un lungo articolo del canonico Angelo Bellani, equivalente anch?esso ad un?altra Memoria sullo stesso argomento, che fu pubblicato per la prima volta sul Giornale di Fisica di Pavia nel 1817. "Prima edizione delle due Memorie riunite in un volume". Cfr. Scolari ?Alessandro Volta?, n. 238 e 288. ?Dopo l'invenzione della pila l'attività di V. si attenuò; tuttavia numerosi e ancora importanti sono i lavori da lui compiuti dopo il 1800; tra essi, una celebre memoria sulla formazione della grandine?.

"Through the long arctic winter, Parry did everything possible to keep his crew occupied. There was constant activity, plays were acted at the 'Royal Arctic Theatre' and Sabine edited a periodical journal, The North Georgia Gazette, and Winter Chronicle" . This periodical was afterwards published by John Murray, and is bound in with this journal. ON THE FIRST VOYAGE Parry was given command of the Hecla and Griper for his first expedition of 1819. Parry sailed up Baffin Bay and through Lancaster Sound and Barrow Strait to the south side of Melville Island, encountering much less heavy ice than anticipated. The expedition over-wintered at Winter Harbour, on the south side of Melville Island. Freeze-up delayed Parry until August of 1820, but he was still able to continue west to Dundas Peninsula and south to Banks Island before turning to head home to England. Parry's voyage was to be recognized as one of the most important in the history of Arctic exploration: he proved that Lancaster Sound opened a passage to the west, he charted a vast area of the unknown Arctic, and proved that it was possible to spend the winter north of the Arctic Circle without being in grave danger. He was also the first to reach 110 degrees west longitude, which earned him and his crew a cash reward of £5,000. [AB 13145]. The Journal, based on Parry's reports, appeared in 1821, after the rights had been bought by the publisher John Murray for the stunning amount of a 1000 guineas. In the same year this second, corrected, edition was published, followed by German, Dutch and French translations. ON THE SECOND VOYAGE " Sent by the Admiralty to search for a passage along the west coast of Foxe Basin, Parry sailed north of Southampton Island instead of south, the route preferred by previous navigators, and thus became the first to sail through Frozen Strait and confirmed Middleton's discovery of Repulse Bay. In late Aug. having found no passage through Repulse Bay, he explored the coast northward, sailing as far as Ross Bay. In Feb. 1822, Eskimos visited the ships' winter quarters on Winter Island and spent much of the winter in the expedition's company, enabling Parry and his men to make detailed observations on their customs and language. After leaving their winter quarters, they explored farther north equipped with Eskimo maps (ESKIMAUX CHART No 1, No 2 & No 3, facing p. 197, 198 and 252) and found the entrance to Fury and Hecla Strait. Ice prevented their passing through it, but overland journeys confirmed that it led westward to a sea. Parry returned to winter quarters and attempted to sail through Fury and Hecla Strait the following summer. Unsuccessful in this attempt, and fearing scurvy, he then returned home. Sabin 58864.

        Rosa Gallica Pontiana

      [Paris: Firmin Didot], 1824. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Langlois. Trimmed within platemark top and sides, not affecting image or titles. More than with any other painter, Redouté's flowers are alive, and always shown at the ephemeral moment of their greatest beauty. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre Italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually to Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full-time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's scientific understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in Les Roses from which this work comes. Redouté together with Claude-Antoine Thory, an ardent botanist and collector of roses, have together in Les Roses produced a work not only of great artistic merit, but also an invaluable scientific record as well. `Redouté and Thory knew, described and figured almost all the important roses known in their day. Included were many of the key ancestors of our present-day roses. The plates in Les Roses have artistic value, botanical and documentary value, both for the species and cultivars still surviving and for those that have disappeared' (Gisele de la Roche). The roses used as specimens for the work were taken from the collections of Thory, the Malmaison gardens, and from other collections around Paris. Many of the flowers were novelties in Redouté's time, and a number were dedicated to the memory of his friends and acquaintances, such as l'Héritier de Brutelle and Ventenat. Cf.

        The National Sports of Great Britain ... With descriptions in English and French ... Chasse et Amusemens Nationaux de la Grande Bretagne

      London: printed for Thomas M'lean by Howlett & Brimmer, 1824. Folio. (18 3/4 x 12 1/4 inches). Parallel titles and text in English and French, text leaves with numerical signatures from 1-50. Hand-coloured engraved additional title, 50 hand-coloured aquatint plates by I. Clark after Henry Alken. (Final two plates and text leaves with minor paper loss to blank margins). Contemporary black straight-grained morocco, the covers elaborately panelled in gilt, the spine in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second compartment, the others with elaborate repeat pattern built up from small tools, gilt turn ins, cream-glazed endpapers, red morocco inner hinges, gilt edges A fine copy of "Alken's most important work ... It must always form the cornerstone of any Alken collection" (Tooley). The plates and text between them offer a thorough survey of the sports practised in Great Britain in the first quarter of the nineteenth century. The subjects covered including riding, fox, stag and otter hunting, beagling, racing, falconry, various types of dogs and horses, shooting grouse, partridge, pheasant, snipe, wild-fowl, bittern, pigeon, fishing for pike, and salmon, fishing from a punt, prize-fighting, cock-fighting, badger, bear, and bull-baiting and perhaps most extraordinary of all: "owling." It is interesting to note that although both the artist and the author felt that it was necessary to record badger, bear and bull baiting they did not hold back from condemning all three sports as barbaric. This copy is a later issue. The additional title is dated 1821 (rather than 1820, as in the first issue), a letterpress title in French has been added (only the English title is present in the first and second issues) and the explanatory text leaves are signed consecutively from 1 to 50 (Podeschi records an intermediate state/issue where only some of the text leaves are numbered). The watermarks suggest a date of circa 1824. The plates, very carefully hand-coloured, are all aquatints by I. Clark, and retain all of the liveliness that is such a feature of this work. The artist Henry Thomas Alken was born into what became a sporting artistic dynasty. He studied under the miniature painter J.T. Barber and exhibited his first picture (a miniature portrait) at the Royal Academy when he was sixteen. From about 1816 onwards he "produced paintings, drawings and engravings of every type of field and other sporting activity. He is best remembered for his hunting prints, many of which he engraved himself until the late 1830s ... To many, sporting art is 'Alken', and to describe his work or ability is quite unnecessary" (Charles Lane British Racing Prints pp.75-76). Litchfield 14; cf. Mellon/Podeschi 111; cf. Schwerdt I, p.19 & IV, p.4; Tooley 42.

        A Picturesque Tour Along the River Ganges and Jumna, in India consisting of twenty-four highly finished and coloured views, a map and vignettes, from original drawings made on the spot, with illustrations historical and descriptive

      London: L. Harrison for Rudolph Ackermann, 1824. Large quarto. (13 1/4 x 11 inches). Title with hand-coloured aquatint vignette, 1 folding uncoloured engraved map, 24 hand-coloured aquatint plates after Forrest by G. Hunt (5), Thomas Sutherland (19), 1 hand-coloured aquatint tail-piece. Expertly bound to style in red straight-grained morocco, the covers panelled in gilt using fillets and a neo-classical roll, the spine in six compartments with double raised bands, the bands highlighted with a dot roll, the space between with a decorative roll, lettered in the second compartment, the others with elaborate repeat decoration in gilt, gilt edges A lovely, large copy of one of the great books on the Indian sub-continent: "a just portrait of the enchanting features of India, eternally glowing in the brilliant glory of the resplendent Asiatic sun"(preface). This important book ranks alongside the works of William Hodges, the Daniells and Henry Salt as one of the cornerstone pictorial works on India. Printed in up to three colours and then delicately hand-coloured, the plates capture the bewitching play of light that so exemplifies Indian scenery. The subjects depicted were all recorded by Forrest during his service as an officer in the army. He was posted in Bengal from 1802 with the 3rd Regiment of Foot, and in the course of his duties made numerous journeys by boat, palanquin or on horseback. The work begins with an overview of Indian history, and his account of his principal journey starts on page 12, describing a tour made by Forrest starting in December 1807. He set out with six companions, 200 servants and followers and a guard of 40 native troops, following the routes of the rivers up from Calcutta to Delhi. Like the various tributaries encountered en route, Forrest made numerous detours to places of interest. All of these are recorded, both in the text and in the plates, with a sensitivity which clearly suggests Forrest's affinity for the country. With a fine sense of the dramatic, he saves his visit to the Taj Mahal for the concluding chapter: "The object which now calls our attention is last in order, but of the highest beauty and interest of any structure yet raised and perfected by man in any region of the earth ... The main part of this splendid edifice has fortunately been respected by all the invaders of Hindoostan, its great beauty being probably its protection. It is as pure and perfect as the day it was finished; and with common care, in the equal climate in which it is situated, it may last for centuries" (pp.190-191). Following his tour, Forrest served as aide-de-camp to his father-in-law, General William St. Leger, then commander-in-chief of the Upper Provinces of India, from about 1808 until 1811. He subsequently served in the Peninsula War, in the expedition against New Orleans in 1814-1815, then in Ireland, and finally as aide-de-camp to the Earl of Dalhousie, governor general of Canada, from 1820 to 1823. Returning to Britain, he died in Bath in March 1827. A contemporary review of the work summarizes its appeal: "The Tour along the River Ganges and Jumna, now completed, is one of those splendid works with which Mr. Ackermann, with great enterprise, liberality, and good taste, favours the public. There are few publishers who would run the hazard of producing them, at an expence that must be enormous ... The work contains twenty-four views, for the fidelity of which the author appeals with confidence to those who have passed through the same scenes. The drawings were all attentively copied from nature, and in many instances coloured on the spot, and always while the magic effects of the scenes represented were still impressed on the mental vision on the author and artist ... The views are of very varied description, including Hindoo pagodas, villages, ancient cities, mountains, forts, palaces, tombs, etc. with the adjacent scenery. There is a great deal of freedom and spirit in the drawings which are exquisitely and delicately coloured, exhibiting a scenery of such peculiar richness and beauty, as can only be appreciated, in its fullest extent, by those who have seen the spots they so well represent ... No description of ours will do justice to these beautiful engravings" (The Literary Chronicle, 8 January 1825). Abbey Travel 441; Martin Hardie p. 109-10, 313; Prideaux pp. 248,336,376; Tooley 227; Bobins 244.

        Edinburgh, From the Top of Princes Street

      London: Published by R. Ackermann's Repository of Arts, 1824. Hand-coloured aquatint. Very good condition apart from a skillfully repaired 3/4" tear in the right margin, a few tiny pinholes at the corners of the sheet, and some light soiling in the margins. Trimmed to within platemark on all sides. A scenic view of Scotland's capital as seen from the city's main thoroughfare, from a set of four prints of Edinburgh. The ancient city of Edinburgh on the east coast of Scotland has a long and eventful history that dates back to the Bronze Age. Perched on top of an elevated volcanic rock, its impressive castle is the city's focal point and was built by King Malcolm III Canmore in the eleventh century. By the late sixteenth century, Edinburgh was a thriving city and was established as the capital Scotland and the chief site of the royal court. Although no longer the royal seat when James VI of Scotland ascended to the English throne in 1603, effectively uniting the crowns of Scotland and England, it retained its own Parliament for many years. The city continued to prosper during the Enlightenment, although its Parliament ceased to exist when the Act of Union was instituted in 1707. During this period, Edinburgh underwent a significant architectural expansion, and the beautiful Georgian buildings, which characterize the city, were erected. Born in Devon, John Gendall moved to London in 1811 at the behest of Sir John Soane, who introduced him to the prolific print-publisher and bookseller Rudolph Ackermann. He worked for Ackermann for several years, conducting various experiments in the art of lithography and contributing numerous illustrations to the firm's various publications and topographical series. A number of his sketches and watercolour drawings were engraved and published as aquatints by the draughtsman Thomas Sutherland. Gendall continued to paint landscapes (mostly of Devonshire) after leaving Ackermann's employment, and he regularly exhibited his works at the Royal Academy until 1863. Cf. Benezit, Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs , Vol. 13, p. 375; cf. Dictionary of National Biography.

      S.A. Steiner und Comp: [PNs 4519-4545] [1824], Wien - First Edition. WeV C.10. Jähns 291. Hoboken 15, 361. Hirsch IV, 1290.First performed in Vienna, October 25, 1823. "Designated. as a ‘grosse romantische Oper’, the work combines the defining attribute of ‘grand opera’ as Weber understood it, the technique of through- composition, with various attributes of the newer ‘romantic’ opera such as a medieval setting with a supernatural component and a high degree of structural and genre variety. Although seriously flawed in certain respects, Helmina von Chézy’s libretto nevertheless allowed Weber to realize ideals of organic wholeness. even more thoroughly than in Der Freischütz. Slow, chromatic, and seemingly aimless music for divisi muted violins and violas characterizes the ethereal but restless existence of a spirit condemned to eternal wandering; with Emma’s redemption at the end of the opera, however, this music is transformed into a diatonic form. Where dialogue separates the formal pieces, Weber composed a flexible, expressive type of accompanied recitative that has little in common melodically or harmonically with conventional approaches to recitative." Paul Corneilson et al in Grove Music Online Oblong folio. Half contemporary dark green leather with green textured paper boards, diamond-shaped leather title label gilt to upper, gilt rules to spine. 1f. (title), [3] (named cast list referring to first production, and contents), 4-223, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved.

        A Flora of North America. Illustrated by coloured figures, drawn from nature

      Philadelphia: vol.I: M. Carey & Sons; vol.II & III: H.C. Carey & I. Lea, 1824. 3 volumes, quarto. (10 9/16 x 8 5/16 inches). Half-titles in each volume. To Subscribers leaf in vol.II. 106 hand-coloured engraved plates (two folding), including some partially printed in colours and finished by hand, from drawings by the author, by Cornelius Tiebout (29), G.B. Ellis (32), F. Kearney (23), J. Boyd (7), J. Drayton (6), C. Goodman (6), Jacob J. Plocher (2) and J.L. Frederick (1). (one folding plate partially backed along fold). Contemporary three quarter calf and marbled boards, spines gilt. An important American flora, "magnificently illustrated" (DAB) with "Plates [that] are clear, soft and lovely" (Bennett). The work includes the first successful use of stipple-engraving in the United States. This set includes the rare 'To Subscribers' leaf in Volume II. In addition to its significance as a botanical work, Barton's Flora is also one of the most important early colour-plate books entirely produced in the United States. "The plates were made by [amongst others] Cornelius Tiebout, the first skilled engraver born in the United States, although he trained in London for two years in the 1790's to perfect his technique." (Reese, Stamped with a National Character p. 40). Barton states in the advertisement to the first volume that some of the "plates are printed in colour, and are afterwards coloured by hand. It is confidently believed by the author, that they will be found the most successful attempts at imitation by sound engraving, of the French style, yet made in this country." He goes on to note that the method of colour printing was the result of "repeated experiments" owing "to the impossibility of obtaining information as to the manner of colouring abroad." The text gives details of each species, its Latin binomial, common name, and class and order according to the Linnaean system, followed by interesting information about the history of the discovery of the species and details about its geographical range.
