        Bathurst Cataract, on the River Apsley.

      London: J. Souter, November 1824. Hand-coloured aquatint, 265 x 355 mm., mounted. An attractive plate from the Joseph Lycett's Views in Australia or New South Wales, & Van Dieman's Land, published in London in 1825 and a landmark in the development of Australian illustrated books. Lycett had arrived in New South Wales as a convict in 1814. Trained as a portrait and miniature painter in Staffordshire, his services as a professional artist were much in demand and he was soon working for the publisher Absalom West. He prepared plates for James Wallis' An Historical Account of the Colony of New South Wales (London 1821) and was later appointed artist to Governor Macquarie.Lycett's style depicted the Australian landscape in a romantic light, imbued with the quality of a rural parkland. A little browning affects the sheet.

      [Harmony, In.], 1824. [2],96pp. Original blue paper wrappers. Covers soiled and stained, front cover torn, spine lacking. Dampstaining throughout. Edge of pp.51-52 (one leaf) torn with no loss of text. A near good copy. In a half morocco box. With the exception of a leaflet of songs, this pamphlet was the first publication of the Harmony Society after establishing its utopian colony at Harmony (later New Harmony), Indiana. Authorship is generally attributed to the Society's leader, George Rapp. A German edition appeared the same year. "The English equivalent of the German text ends with line six on page 89. The remaining seven pages of this title were probably composed by the translator. Manuscripts in the Society archives reveal that printing of this title was not completed until 1825 and the title page was printed for the Society by Eichbaum and Johnston of Pittsburgh" - Byrd & Peckham. Howes bungles his entry for this item, giving the title of the German edition (incorrectly) and the collation of the English (also incorrectly). He accords it a "b" rating. An important American utopian statement from the press of one of the most famous American utopian communities. HOWES H206, "b." STREETER SALE 4238. BYRD & PECKHAM 215. SABIN 95698.

        Narrative of a Journey to the Shores of the Polar Sea, in the Years 1819-20-21-22.

      London: John Murray, 1824. Two volumes, octavo, with four splendid folding maps; in contemporary navy half calf, marbled boards, edges and endpapers. Second edition, publishing the results of the 1819-1822 expedition to the polar north under the command of Sir John Franklin.Franklin's expedition was one of two simultaneously searching a route to the pole (the second was assigned to William Parry).Assured of guides and ongoing supplies by the Hudson's Bay Company, Franklin and his party of twenty men sought an overland route east of the Coppermine River. Using native canoes to traverse a vast landscape, relations among the men deteriorated as food and supplies dwindled. Cold, exposure and starvation took a harrowing toll as cannibalism and murder erupted amongst the voyagers. A total of nine men died.This account was initially published in a lavishly illustrated quarto edition. This second edition in smaller format features four splendidly engraved maps. Franklin later served as a Lieutenant-Governor of Van Diemen's Land, where he clashed with the disciplinarian bureaucracy inherited from his predecessor George Arthur. Fine.

        Dizionario storico-mitologico di tutti i popoli del mondo.

      Second edition of this classic dictionary of comparative mythology, a hefty collection of the deities, heroes, tales, festivals, antiquities, and other folklore of numerous cultures and countries including Mexico, Peru, America, Africa, India, Japan, China, etc, along with Jewish, Greek, and Roman antiquities. The foundation of the work was François Noel's Dictionnaire de la Fable; copious additions and corrections were made by Pozzoli, Romani (the famed poet, scholar, and librettist for La Scala), and Peracchi (another librettist). The resulting encyclopedic endeavor was originally published from 1809-27 under the title Dizionario d'ogni mitologia e antichità incominciato, according to Graesse and Brunet, who both give Pozzoli's first name as Girolamo. This set includes two volumes of supplemental text, adding a number of entries. The first edition was followed by two volumes of supplemental plates, not present here and not called for: Graesse describes this edition as "sans grav." The pagination is erratic in a number of places; there is a numbering gap from 2342 to 2351 between vols. IV and V, but the text and signatures are uninterrupted. Uncommon: OCLC locates only two U.S. institutional holdings of this second edition. Provenance: Most volumes with small inked ownership inscription in an outer margin: "G.R.W." the mark of William Rollinson Whittingham (1805-79), fourth Episcopal Bishop of Maryland and an enthusiastic book collector.

        Jocko, Anecdote détachée des lettres inédites sur l'instinct des animaux.

      Paris: [J Tastu for ] P. Persan, 1824. Duodecimo, some foxing, localised stain affects the final leaf; good in contemporary quarter sheep with marbled boards. First edition: a curious tale exploring the dual nature of humans and primates, rich in philosophical reflection and purportedly based upon scientific and voyage literature.Charles Pougens (1755-1833) was an indefatigable scholar and linguist whose promising diplomatic career was cut short when blinded by the pox at 24 years of age. Pougens continued as a man-of-letters and publisher who enjoyed close contact with luminaries and intellectuals of the era.Jocko is a fictional work, relating the experiences of a traveller who forms a friendship with a female orang-outang on an unnamed island in the New World. Similarities between human and orang-outang behaviour are explored, although the simian is presented as an innocent ultimately duped by human greed.The author's insatiable erudition is attested by the 84 pages of evidence that accompany the short story; every aspect of the tale is linked to scientific and voyage literature. A galaxy of scholars and travellers are enlisted in the cause, including naturalists such as Cuvier and Geoffrey Saint-Hilaire, philosophers, and a number of famous voyagers including Schouten, Dampier and Bergeron. These notes are followed by an equally impressive alphabetical list of authors cited. The list is bibliographically detailed (we learn, for instance, that Pougens consulted the 1711-1712 Amsterdam edition of Dampier issued in five volumes).The scholarly nature of Jocko did not diminish the popular appeal of the story; a second edition appeared the same year and theatrical adaptations attracted large audiences.

        Account of the Murder of the Late Mr. William Weare, of Lyon's Inn... and Portraits of the Prisoners, John Thurtell, Jos. Hunt, and Wm. Probert...

      London: J. Nichols and Son, 1824. Octavo, frontispiece, 2 folding maps and 3 plates, newspaper clipping tipped-in to early blank; attractive contemporary dark blue half calf over marbled boards, spine banded and gilt, rubbed, Davidson bookplate. An uncommon title, especially in such fine condition: a famous account of the London underworld and the seedy nature of amateur boxing. One of the accomplices to the murder, Joseph Hunt, was sentenced to transportation to New South Wales, and was sent to New South Wales on the Countess of Harcourt.William Weare, a solicitor and a gambler, was killed by John Thurtell, a former Royal Marine officer and an amateur boxer, who owed Weare an immense sum of money. Thurtell had invited Weare for a weekend of gambling with Joseph Hunt and William Probert, but shot Weare just short of their destination. The three men hid the corpse in a pond. After the ensuing trial, Thurtell was hanged, Hunt sentenced to transportation, and Probert, who had turned King's evidence, was given his freedom. On arrival, Hunt was sent to Bathurst, and was granted his ticket of leave in 1832, and a conditional pardon in 1842. He died in Bathurst in 1861, and his occupation was given as District Constable.The trial was a public sensation and one of the most famous of the nineteenth century. Many accounts were published, ranging from cheap chapbooks right through to more beautifully illustrated editions such as this one. A few spots but an excellent copy.

A fine copy, internally bright and clean. ----Dibner 155; PMM 285, Norman 404; Honeyman 601; Darmstaedter 354 - FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF THE GREAT RARITIES IN THE HISTORY OF SCIENCE. Although this was the author's only work -- his life being cut short by scarlet fever -- in it he anticipates both the first and second law of thermodynamics. Carnot's work was born out of the need to improve the new two-cylinder compound steam engine developed in the first part of the century. Instead of focusing on the properties of steam, as others had done, Carnot proposed a general theory of heat as a motive force. As PMM notes: "the book was essentially an attempt to calculate the mechanical equivalent of heat." Carnot's work was to profoundly influence Helmholtz and Joule and led directly to the enunciation of the theory of the conservation of energy by Helmholtz. The second law of thermodynamics is also implicit in Carnot's treatise... Carnot's... researches led also to the absolute scale of temperature" (PMM). Only 600 copies of the work were printed. Near Fine.

Housed in an early red cloth slip-case."The woodcuts are sometimes found in coloured state" (Cohn).".J. Robins, as successor to [Cruikshank publishers] Hone and Baldwin published many of Cruikshank's most important plates. In the same issue [of the Dublin and London Magazine] the plates for Tales of Irish Life were judged. 'superior to any thing that celebrated artist has ever yet done.'Michael James Whitty (1795 - 1873), newspaper editor and proprietor, native of Enniscorthy, Co Wexford, commenced his literary career in London, and among his earliest friends were Sir James Bacon and George Cruikshank. He was appointed editor of the London and Dublin Magazine in 1823. From 1823 to 1829 he contributed largely to Irish periodical literature, and was an ardent advocate of Catholic emancipation. He published anonymously in 1824 two volumes of Tales of Irish Life stories (which) depict the customs and condition of the people of his homeland, and were a great success, being reprinted in America and also translated into French and German.

        Euvres de Lovise Labé, Lionnoize.

      par Dvrand et Perrin, A Lion 1824 - In-8 de LXX-(2)-326-(2) pp., maroquin rouge, dos orné à 4 nerfs, filets dorés d'encadrement sur les plats, roulette dorée au centre, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque signée Montherot). Liste des 42 souscripteurs à la fin du volume. Bel exemplaire dans une rare reliure signée de Jean-Baptiste-François de Montherot (1784-1873), beau-frère de Lamartine. Maire de la commune de Charnoz, il fut membre de l'Académie de Lyon. « Sans fuir le monde qui l'accueillait avec bonheur, M. de Montherot ne craignait la vie d'intérieur ni la ville. Il avait une galerie de tableaux bien choisie et une riche bibliothèque formée avec goût. il lisait, se tenait au courant de la littérature du jour, mais il préférait les grands écrivains du siècle passé à tous les Sue et à tous les Soulié de son temps. Son amour des livres ne se bornait pas là. Pour reposer son esprit, sans se séparer de ses chers volumes, il avait appris l'art difficile de relier ; et s'il ne rivalisait pas avec les Bruyère et les Bauzonnet, il n'en était pas moins un relieur fort présentable » (L. Niepce, Les Bibliothèques anciennes et modernes de Lyon, p. 296). « Cette édition est précédée d'un avertissement, d'un dialogue entre Sapho et Louise Labé, par M. Dumas, d'une notice sur Louise Labé, par M. Cochard, accompagnée de notes et elle est suivie d'un glossaire de Louise Labé et des poètes qui ont écrit à sa louange, par M. Bréghot du Lut. Elle a été publiée aux frais d'une société d'amateurs, et elle porte au premier feuillet cette dédicace : Patriae, Amicitiae et Mvsis. Elle a été tirée sur huit sortes de papiers: carré raisin superfin, 116 ; grand raisin vélin, 27; coquille nankin, 9 ; coquille rose, 4 ; coquille verte, 1 ; coquille variée à chaque feuille, 1 ; papier de Chine, 1 ; le reste de l'édition est en carré vélin ordinaire » (Monfalcon, Manuel du biblophile et l'archéologue lyonnais).

        A Picturesque Tour along the Rivers 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, R. Ackermann, 1824 - Quarto (332 × 264 mm). Recent red full morocco Cosway-style binding by Bayntun, with a miniature painting (under glass) set into the front cover, showing the Taj Mahal in the center of the panel, surrounded by eight smaller paintings of Indian historic sites, the space between the ovals in-filled with minute gilt floral motifs, richly gilt spine, single-line gilt border on sides enclosing gilt panel with ornamental corners, all edges gilt, richly gilt turn-ins, red watered silk endleaves, preserved in a custom made fleece-lined red cloth slipcase. Embossed library stamp of Donald Duncan MacDermid on a preliminary blank. Occasional light offsetting from letterpress to plate (and vice versa). With folding engraved map as a frontispiece, 24 fine hand-coloured aquatint plates by Hunt or Sutherland after Forrest, title page and last leaf each with a hand-coloured aquatint vignette. Watermarks: plates 1825; text 1821 & 1824. First edition of one of the finest colour plate books on India, originally issued in six monthly numbers. "The illustrations are clear and bright, finely engraved, frequently printed in two colours, and well finished by hand they are a brave attempt to express what the author in the glittering and oriental peroration to his preface describes as 'the enchanting features of India, eternally glowing in the brilliant glory of the resplendent Asiatic sun'" (Martin Hardie). They are also eulogised in Mildred Archer and Ronald Lightbown's India Observed: India as viewed by British Artists 1760-1860 (V&A 1982): "Beautiful in themselves, they also mark an evolution from earlier aquatints, whose subjects sparkle under an eternal sunlight, in showing at times an evening light or stormy skies. This moodiness of landscape is of course very much in Romantic taste. Forrest may have supervised their colouring with more care than was always usual". Forrest served with the 3rd East Kent Regiment ('The Buffs') from 1802-14 in India and in the Peninsula, acting as Major of Brigade in Bengal in 1810; he purchased a commission as Major in the 34th Cumberland Regiment of Foot in 1814, having been appointed Deputy Assistant in the Quarter Master-General's Department in 1813, and served in the war in America in 1815 as Assistant Quarter-Master General, seeing action at New Orleans, his journal of the campaign was published in 1961. His Indian tour was undertaken in 1807, motivated by "a desire to explore [Bengal's] grander and wilder beauties." A superbly bound copy with a most attractive miniature on the front cover. Abbey Travel 441; Martin Hardie pp, 109-10, 313; Tooley 227. [Attributes: First Edition]

First edition. Bradshaw 2917. Goldsmiths 24397. In the view of Thomas McGrath (ODNB) Doyle's Letters on the state of Ireland> was 'an outstanding work of great passion, brimming with savage indignation - one of the finest examples of modern Irish polemic.' The Letters> range over all the issues of the day: the character of the Irish government, policing, the Irish gentry, the state of religion, the administration of justice, the increase in population, public education, the Protestant Bible Societies, Catholic emancipation and Papal influence, selective disfranchisement, and legal provision for the poor. James Warren Doyle (1786-1834), the young Bishop of Kildare and Leighlin, was a much respected and influential political activist. * The initials 'J.K.L.' were a semi-anonymous shorthand for J>ames [bishop of] K>ildare & L>eighlin.

Schneider in Amsterdam, dann in Brüssel, Augsburg, Lissabon, Warschau, Leiden, Madrid, Venezia, Lyon, Lissabon) publiziert wurde.
