        Victory of Sachturis at Samos."

      Philhellenic: Munich H. Kohler c1835. Tinted lithograph, as issued, of Georgios Sachtouris during the Battle of Samos, from Peter von Hess's Album of Greek Heroism, or the Deliverance of Greece / Griechenlands Befreiung ... in XXXIX Bildern.[ First edition.] within decorative borders incorporating captions in Greek, German, French & English. The borders are decorated with guns, swords and helmets with the Greek flag to the left; on the right a crucifix and other emblems of the Christian church; at the top Turkish weapons, laid down, with a fez ,and below, sails and naval instruments. The image shows Sachturis on board ship during the Battle of Samos August 1824. The island of Samos, under its leader, Lykourgos Logothetis, had successfully rebelled against the Ottomans in 1821, and established its own autonomous government. The island's position however, a few miles off the Anatolian coast, made it vulnerable to a potential Ottoman attack. In the summer of 1824, following the destruction of Psara, the Ottoman fleet and troops assembled on the Anatolian coast, with the intention of capturing the island. Anxious to avoid repeating the failure to protect Psara, the Greek fleet, under admiral Georgios Sachtouris, assembled to guard the island. After some minor engagements on the previous days, the decisive battle occurred on August 17. The Greek fireships, including one under the celebrated Constantine Kanaris, then attacked and succeeded in burning three Ottoman ships, forcing the Kapudan Pasha Mehmed Hüsrev to withdraw. Image bright and clean; a few light spots to blank borders. Peter( Heinrich Lambert} von Hess 1792-1871, was a German painter, known for historic paintings, especially of the Napoleonic Wars and the Greek War of Independence. In 1833, at Ludwig's request, he accompanied Otto of Greece to the newly formed Kingdom of Greece, where at Athens he gathered materials for pictures of the war of liberation. He stayed nine months in Greece, interviewing heroes and eyewitnesses of the 1821 revolution. His first- hand knowledge of the heroes gives power to his work. He drew 39 historical persons The sketches which he then made were placed, forty in number, in the Pinakothek, after being copied in wax on a large scale by Nilsen, in the northern arcades of the Hofgarten at Munich, [sadly now destroyed]. It should be noted that Hess was not present during the Revolution; the paintings are representations of reported events. many are of Greek victories, or of heroic deaths of the Greek leaders.

        Histoire generale de la digestion (galley proofs)

      Paris. Corrected Galleys of an Unpublished Work Corvisart, Lucien (1824-82). Histoire generale de la digestion [caption title]. Author's interleaved & corrected proofs, bound in 2 vols., 8vo, the first volume comprising the Introduction historique sur la digestion en general. [ix]-clii; 144pp. Both paginations incomplete (text on last pages breaks off in mid-sentence). N.p., n.d. [Paris, not before 1863]. 216 x 138 mm. 19th cent. half calf, a little rubbed. Uneven browning, occasional foxing & soiling, but very good. Modern bookplate. Corrected Galley Proofs, with author's extensive annotations on about one-quarter of the pages, of what appears to be an unpublished work. Corvisart, the nephew of Jean Nicolas Corvisart des Marest, devoted a good portion of his career to the physiology of digestion, performing important research on the pancreas (see Garrison-Morton 1001) and publishing several works in the mid-19th century on various aspects of digestion and nutrition. He may have intended his Histoire generale de la digestion to be his crowning work in this field: written some time after the publication of his Collection de memoires sur une fonction peu connue du pancreas (1857-63), it tackles the entire history of digestion physiology from ancient times to his own era, and presents a detailed study of the function and purpose of the entire digestive and nutritional system from the stomach to the large intestine, with particular emphasis on the pancreas. When we checked OCLC showed no works by Corvisart published after the Collection de memoires, so that our set of corrected proofs represents what may be the only written evidence of Corvisart's scientific work after 1863.

        Miroir des Modes Parisiennes

      sp;- Paris -Louis Janet, 1824 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce copy of this delightful little informative book outlining early nineteenth-century Parisian fashions. Featuressix colour plates with tissue guards. With a vignette title with tissue-guard. During the 1820s in European and European-influenced countries, fashionable women's clothing styles transitioned away from the classically-influenced Empire/Regency styles of ca. 17951820 and re-adopted elements that had been characteristic of most of the 18th century (and were to be characteristic of the remainder of the 19th century), such as full skirts and clearly visible corseting of the natural waist. The silhouette of men's fashion changed in similar ways: by the mid-1820s coats featured broad shoulders with puffed sleeves, a narrow waist, and full skirts. Trousers were worn for smart day wear, while breeches continued in use at court and in the country. Condition: In a decorative full calf binding. Externally excellent with just a little shelfwear. Internally, firmly bound. Bright despite some marginal age-toning, apart from the plates which are somewhat browned due to the paper used, the colours remaining bright. Generally clean with a few scattered spots and marginal tidemarks. Overall: VERY GOOD..

      London.: Howlett and Brimmer.. [Reprint].. 1824.. Translated from the French. 4 volumes in 2. Complete with 80 full page handcoloured plates. Volume I: 128pp. Volume II: 124pp. Volume III: 135pp. Volume IV: 160pp. Attractive leather bindings, rebacked with backstrip laid down, all edges gilt, little occasional rubbing extremities.

Lust 1243; Cordier 65; Reed and Dematte 14 - 1st English editions. Abbey 535 (3rd edition). First published in English in 1813 following the first publication of the work in French 1811 - 12. The delightful coloured plates and the wide coverage of the text meant this was a book with broad appeal which sold well to the early 19th century European public keen to learn more of the world beyond Europe. Described by Reed and De Matte (China on Paper, 2007) as one of the precusors to the modern travel book, the appeal of these books was enhanced by their "striking and sensational illustrations [which] featured material that was ostensibly true but truly extraordinary, that is, outside the frome of daily life in the West. In effect, publications on China were books of wonders.." .

Sporadic foxing throughout text leaves, mostly in the margins, with occasional soiling; however, the foxing is moderately heavy on the opening and closing leaves. The plates show light to moderate foxing, and a few of the plates have some splitting at folds. One plate has an irregular closed tear at the inside edge of the plate. The map also has an irregular tear and is missing chip at the inside edge of the plate. Nonetheless, it is a scarce work, complete and in original boards.

      Richmond, VA: Peter Cottom, 1824. contemporary quarter calf over paper covered boards in later clamshell box. 2511|79990|101405|102279/PR. Bookbinding. 12mo. contemporary quarter calf over paper covered boards in later clamshell box. iv, 60 pages. First American from the third English edition, with "considerable additions" (See S-K 7258. Pollard no.89). The 1811 English printing was the first English book devoted entirely to bookbinding. "It is very much a working bookbinder's notebook put in order for publication and owes little to the encyclopaedias." The best description of this important book appears in Highlights from the Bernard C. Middleton Collection of Books on Bookbinding (Rochester, NY, 2000, No.9, page 32): "The first English bookbinding manual, published more than a century after the earliest Continental ones. This slim, unillustrated book covers forwarding somewhat cursorily, but the sections on the sprinkling of book-edges, the sprinkling and marbling of leather covers, and the preparation of the colours are more than detailed. Gold tooling and stationery binding are also dealt with. In these days of complete openness among craftspeople, those of the younger generation may wonder why the book was published anonymously. The reason was that secretiveness was very prevalent at the time and, indeed, persisted in some quarters well within living memory. This apparent meanness of spirit can be understood in the light of very harsh industrial and social conditions and the complete lack of benefits paid by the State. Marblers, in particular, often erected partitions or kept the inquisitive out of their room in order not to be observed at work, so an author who divulged details of the 'art and mystery' of the craft would expect hostility from fellow practitioners. Authors of most later manuals were identified, but they gave generalized instructions which did not include the multitude of essential 'wrinkles' which greatly facilitate procedures. The question of authorship has exercised the minds of a number of historians. I have insufficient space fully to summarize the arguments. Suffice it to say that three candidates have been named: W. Price, an Oswestry binder, whose earliest date in directories is 1828; Nathaniel Minshall, the printer of the manual, and admitted as a solicitor in 1819; and Henry Parry, author of The Art of Bookbinding published in 1817. Of the three, Parry seems the most likely; the Oswestry volume was registered at Stationers' Hall in the name of Henry Parry, so it would be a remarkable coincidence if he were not the author." This American edition is even more scarce than the English edition with only 11 copies cited in OCLC. This copy's foldout table in the back which lists prices for New York bookbinders is torn with most lacking, but facsimile reprint, with letter from previous bookseller, inserted.

There is no volume III plate 1. The other plates of volume III have a small repair to the fore-edge. A complete collation of the oblong atlas volume is as follows: volume II (1825): pp. [2] (title page), 3-10 (explanation of plates), 27 plates (26 numbered plates + one unnumbered plate called “cercle méthodologique”); III (1827): [ii] (title page), plate explanation), six plates; IV (1828) [ii] (title page and verso, list of plates), eight plates. Some damp-staining, however limited to the plates of volume II, thus probably from before binding. The long hand-coloured views and cross sections of volume IV are clean.(Postage on this item might be more than indicated, please inquire)

        A. Miaulis beats the Turkish fleet at Kos."

      Philhellenic: Munich H. Kohler c1835. Tinted lithograph, as issued, of Andreas Miaoulis, from Peter von Hess's Album of Greek Heroism, or the Deliverance of Greece / Griechenlands Befreiung ... in XXXIX Bildern.[ First edition.] within decorative borders incorporating captions in Greek, German, French & English. The borders are decorated with guns, swords and helmets with the Greek flag to the left; on the right a crucifix and other emblems of the Christian church; at the top Turkish weapons, laid down, with a fez ,and below, sails and naval instruments The image shows Miaoulis on board ship after the Naval Battle of Gerontas which took place near Kos and Leros, at the end of August, 1824. The two fleets first engaged in battle on August 24 between Kos and Alicarnassus. The following day was marked by very poor weather which caused the Greek fleet to take refuge in the Gulf of Gerontas. On August 29, 1824, the main battle was fought between Leros and the coast of Asia Minor. The Greeks, making use of their fireships destroyed some 30 enemy ships and sent the rest fleeing towards Alikarnassos (Bodrum). Many officers were taken prisoner including the commander of the Tunisian fleet. Eventually, the Egyptian fleet retired to Crete while the Turkish fleet returned to the Dardanelles. Andreas Vokos, nicknamed Miaoulis (1768 – 1835), was an admiral and politician who commanded Greek naval forces during the Greek War of Independence (1821-1829). Miaoulis, who was of Arvanite origin, was born in Euboea and settled on the island of Hydra east of the Morea and was known among his fellow islanders as a trader in corn who had gained wealth and made a popular use of his money. He had been a merchant captain, and was chosen to lead the naval forces of the islands when they rose against the government of the Sultan. Miaoulis contributed in every way possible to the cause of the resistance against the Turks. He expended the money he had made from his wheat-shipping business during the Napoleonic Wars. Between May 1825 and January 1826,Miaoulis led the Greeks to victory over the Turks in skirmishes off Modon, Cape Matapan, Suda, and Cape Papas. As early as 1822 Miaoulis was appointed navarch, (Greek: Νάυαρχος) or admiral, of the swarm of small vessels which formed the insurgent fleet. He commanded the expedition sent to take revenge for the massacre of Chios in the same year. He was victorious at the Battle of Nauplia in September. In 1824, after the conquest of Psara by the Turks, he commanded the Greek forces which prevented the further progress of the Sultan's fleet, though at the cost of the loss of many fire ships and men. But in the same year he was unable to prevent the Egyptian forces from occupying Navarino, though he harassed them with some success. In 1825 he succeeded in carrying stores and reinforcements into Missolonghi, when it was besieged for the second time, though he could not avert its fall. When independence had been obtained, Miaoulis in his old age was entangled in the civil conflicts of his country, as an opponent of Capodistrias and the Russian Party : he seized some of the principal ships of the Greek fleet at Poros in August 1831, including the Hellas, and destroyed them during the counter-attack of the Russian fleet. He was one of the deputation sent to invite King Otho to accept the crown of Greece, and was made rear-admiral and then vice-admiral by him. Otto also awarded him with the Grand Cross of the Order of the Redeemer. Image bright and clean; light spotting to blank borders; tear [repaired] to lower margin. Peter( Heinrich Lambert} von Hess 1792-1871, was a German painter, known for historic paintings, especially of the Napoleonic Wars and the Greek War of Independence. In 1833, at Ludwig's request, he accompanied Otto of Greece to the newly formed Kingdom of Greece, where at Athens he gathered materials for pictures of the war of liberation. He stayed nine months in Greece, interviewing heroes and eyewitnesses of the 1821 revolution. His first- hand knowledge of the heroes gives power to his work. He drew 39 historical persons The sketches which he then made were placed, forty in number, in the Pinakothek, after being copied in wax on a large scale by Nilsen, in the northern arcades of the Hofgarten at Munich, [sadly now destroyed]. It should be noted that Hess was not present during the Revolution; the paintings are representations of reported events. many are of Greek victories, or of heroic deaths of the Greek leaders. Not in Blackmer ,Droulia or Contominas. Philhellenic Andreas Miaoulis Gerontas Kos

        The Inheritance

      Edinburgh and London - William Blackwood and T. Cadell, 1824 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A lovely first edition of Susan Edmonstone Ferrier's humorous second novel, replete with eccentric and poignant gentrified characters. Susan Edmonstone Ferrier (17821854) was a Romantic novelist with a keen eye for the ridiculous, providing entertaining portrait of Scottish society. Her first novel, Marriage, was published anonymously and, although a few people guessed the author's identity, Susan Ferrier denied authorship. It was an immediate success, the lively humour and social satire having great appeal. The author had a sharp eye for the foibles of human nature and several of her more eccentric characters such as Lady Maclaughlan and the three aunts at Glenfern Castle were based on real people. The Inheritance was enthusiastically received; Scott, Henry Mackenzie and his daughters, Francis Jeffrey, Basil Hall, and the Argyll family all expressed their delight. Her friends were able to recognize her father James Ferrier in the character of Uncle Adam Ramsay, and others who read the novel enjoyed speculating on the identity of the characters. Despite its reception, and the fact that her authorship was now widely known, she wished once again to remain anonymous. DNBCondition: In quarter calf bindings with marbled boards. Externally rubbed. One jointiscracked, one starting. Internally, generally firmly bound. Bright and very clean throughout, with just the occasional mark. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

        Organon de l'art de guérir traduit de l'original allemand par Erneste George De Brunnow

      Dresde, chez Arnold 1824 In-8° broché, couverture d'attente de l'époque, LXII-271 pages et un feuillet d'errata. Exemplaire dans sa condition originelle, broché, à toutes marges. Ex-dono manuscrit au verso du premier plat. Cette première traduction parue à Dresde dont le Duc souverain, Frédéric-Ferdinand fut un des premiers protecteurs d'une méthode qui déclencha immédiatement des phénomènes d'amour et de haine est le premier livre français d'homéopathie, considéré du fait de son importance et de sa réelle rareté comme le graal de tous collectionneurs d'histoire de l'homéopathie. Cet exemplaire - en exact état de parution - est rendu unique et exceptionnel par son appartenance. Il a été offert au grand chirurgien, Récamier, élève de Desault dont l'amitié avec Hahnemann est bien connue. En témoigne, l'annotation manuscrite figurant au dos du premier plat "Mr le docteur Récamier", probablement de la main du traducteur et maitre d'oeuvre de l'édition, le Baron Erneste George Von Brunnow. On connaît le role de celui-ci sur la propagation de l'homoeopathie à ses débuts dans toute l'Europe et le couple associatif qu'il forma avec Hahnemann après avoir été son patient pourrait évoquer d'autres relations ayant présidée à la naissance d'autres révolutions médicales, comme Deslon et Mesmer, ou Marie Bonaparte et Freud.
