      - Seconda Edizione con l'Aggiunta di Macchine posteriori e premesse le Notizie storiche della Vita e delle Opere dello stesso Zabaglia. Compilate?dell'Avvocato Filippo Maria Renazzi. Finely engraved frontis. port. of Zabaglia (margins a little foxed), engraved vignettes on Italian & Latin titles, a large engraved headpiece, & 62 fine engraved plates (ten are folding). 4 p.l., xxix, [1], 46, [4], 48 pp. Text in both Italian and Latin. Large folio (505 x 375 mm.), fine Roman green sheep maroquiné with covers richly gilt in a panel design (a few scuff marks & defects), flat spine richly gilt (ends of spine a little worn), probably bound by the "Pope Gregory XVI binder." Rome: C. Puccinelli, 1824. Second edition, with important additions, of this finely illustrated engineering book. The first edition appeared in 1743. Zabaglia (1664-1750), "master mason of the Fabric of St. Peter's," was one of the foremost engineers and mechanics of his time. He was responsible for the maintenance of St. Peter's in Rome and designed the scaffolding and other devices used for its decoration and repair. The scaffolds - both ground and suspension - were extraordinary temporary structures designed to support, at the great heights of the basilica, the workers, equipment, materials, and machines necessary for restoration works, mosaic and painting decorations, the installation of statues, as well as for placing the iron hoops in the dome to stabilize cracks. Zabaglia made important advances in the technique used to graft and join wooden beams to assemble very large scaffolds and machines. He also founded a "School of Practical Mechanics." The handsome plates in this work depict Zabaglia's inventions including hoists, lifting machines, various kinds of scaffolds, machinery, tools, mosaics, artists at work, men working in a quarry, the transportation of marble and stone, the transportation and lifting of the Vatican obelisk by Fontana in the late 16th century, Zabaglia's transportation of the great obelisk of Augustus, etc. Our edition is enriched by eight new plates depicting the scaffolds made by Zabaglia's most skillful pupils, including Pietro Albertini and Angelo Paraccini. Added is a biography of Zabaglia with a detailed account of his other engineering achievements. A most handsome copy, finely bound. ? Dibner, Moving the Obelisks (1991). For the binder , see Cat. della Mostra Legature papali da Eugenio IV a Paolo VI (Rome: 1977), no. 284, tav. 204.

        JOURNAL OF A SECOND VOYAGE FOR THE DISCOVERY OF A NORTH-WEST PASSAGE FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC; Performed In The Years 1821-22-23, In His Majesty's Ships Fury and Hecla.

      John Murray, London 1824 - London: John Murray, 1824. 4to. 1st edition. [8pp] + xxx + [1pp] + 571pp + [1pp]. 26 engraved plates, 9 engraved maps (4 folding), 4 folding sheets of land profiles, tables, illustrations. All plates and charts are complete and clean. Contemporary half calf, with period-style spine, elaborate tooling in the compartments, black leather label.  Clean and very good. Convinced that a route to the Northwest Passage existed out of Hudson's Bay, Parry set out on an expedition in the spring of 1821 with the ships Fury and Hecla. He was instructed to meet up with, and offer assistance to John Franklin's overland expedition in the Coronation Gulf region. Parry sailed though Hudson Strait and Foxe Channel and into Frozen Strait, westward into Repulse Bay and then northward into Lyon Inlet. The expedition spent the winter at Winter Island, where the crew enjoyed much improved living conditions over what was typically known. While at Winter Island, they were visited by a group of Inuit, and as a result, a considerable amount of information was collected and compiled on their customs and way of life. G.F. Lyon's skilful drawings, depicting the Inuit in their traditional clothing, at work, on the hunt, and at play, became the basis for the illustrations used in Parry's journal. When Parry was able to set sail again the next year, he resumed his voyage northward to discover and explore Fury and Hecla Straits, but owing to heavy ice, proceeded only to Igloolik Island off the northwest coast of Melville Peninsula where they spent the second winter. The following summer, Parry aborted the expedition and headed back to England. [AB 13142] [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Dizionario topografico-storico degli stati estensi. Opera postuma del cavalier abate Girolamo Tiraboschi.

      Tipografia Camerale, 1824. Due volumi in 4to, pp. (4), 413, (3), (4), 468, (2) e 2 tavole ripiegate. Legatura coeva in mezza pelle con titolo e fregi in oro ai dorsi, piatti ricoperti di carta marmorizzata, tagli picchiettati. Qualche lieve fioritura, ma ottima copia. Prima edizione, apparsa postuma. Quest'opera è una vera e propria enciclopedia che nella successione alfabetica delle voci di città, terre, ville, pievi, fiumi e monti, ricostruisce, dall'etimologia dei nomi alle vicende delle grandi famiglie, il passato delle terre estensi. Il Tiraboschi, originario di Bergamo, prosecutore della grande tradizione storiografica muratoriana, gesuita dal 1746, fu chiamato a Modena nel 1770 con l'incarico di dirigere la Biblioteca Estense. Nella citta' emiliana rimase per tutta la vita, attendendo a studi ancora oggi consultabili con profitto per la sterminata dottrina che vi e' profusa e per il rigore del metodo. Tra questi ricordiamo soprattutto la Storia della letteratura italiana (1772-1781). Dal 1773 al '90 fu prima collaboratore e poi direttore del Nuovo giornale dei letterati d'Italia (cfr. C. Frati, Dizionario bio-bibliografico dei bibliotecari e bibliofili italiani, Firenze, 1933, pp. 534-541). Lozzi, 2829.

        Observations on the anatomy of the duck-billed animal of New South Wales, the Ornithorynchus paradoxus of naturalists [AND] Observations on the organs of digestion and their appendages, and on the organs of respiration and circulation, in the Ornithorynchus paradoxus [AND] On the kidneys, urinary bladder, and organs of generation, in the male of the Ornithorynchus paradoxus.

      Edinburgh, Adam Black, 1824. 8vo (20.8 x 13.4 cm). 15+6+24 pp., three engraved plates. Contemporary quarter calf over marbled boards. Spine with gilt lines and title. Marbled endpapers. Speckled edges.= Three early accounts on the anatomy and morphology of one of Australia's most famous mammals: the duck-billed Platypus, then a still quite mysterious animal, by Robert Knox. The three plates show the "poison gland and duct in the foot" (it is the only poisonous mammal), the "complex clavicle and scapulae", and the "organs of generation in the male". On page 27, Knox remarked "It is well known that the specimens of this very extraordinary animal first brought to Europe were considered by many as impositions. They reached England by vessels which had navigated the Indian seas, a circumstance in itself sufficient to rouse the suspicions of the scientific naturalist, aware of the monstrous impostures which the artful Chinese had so frequently practised on European adventurers...". Contained in volume 5(1) of the 'Memoirs of the Wernerian Natural History Society', together with several unrelated papers, as well as Knox' two accounts "of the foramen centrale of the retina, generally called the "Foramen of Soemmering", as seen in the eyes of certain reptiles", with a fine plate. Boards extremities somewhat rubbed and worn; old stamp on title page. A few marginalia in the index (not in Knox's paper). A very good copy. Rare. Not in Ferguson.

        Castelli e Ponti...con alcune ingegnose Pratiche, e con la Descrizione del Trasporto dell'Obelisco Vaticano e di altri del Cavaliere Domenico Fontana

      Seconda Edizione con l'Aggiunta di Macchine posteriori e premesse le Notizie storiche della Vita e delle Opere dello stesso Zabaglia. Compilate…dell'Avvocato Filippo Maria Renazzi. Finely engraved frontis. port. of Zabaglia (margins a little foxed), engraved vignettes on Italian & Latin titles, a large engraved headpiece, & 62 fine engraved plates (ten are folding). 4 p.l., xxix, [1], 46, [4], 48 pp. Text in both Italian and Latin. Large folio (505 x 375 mm.), fine Roman green sheep maroquiné with covers richly gilt in a panel design (a few scuff marks & defects), flat spine richly gilt (ends of spine a little worn), probably bound by the "Pope Gregory XVI binder." Rome: C. Puccinelli, 1824. Second edition, with important additions, of this finely illustrated engineering book. The first edition appeared in 1743. Zabaglia (1664-1750), "master mason of the Fabric of St. Peter's," was one of the foremost engineers and mechanics of his time. He was responsible for the maintenance of St. Peter's in Rome and designed the scaffolding and other devices used for its decoration and repair. The scaffolds - both ground and suspension - were extraordinary temporary structures designed to support, at the great heights of the basilica, the workers, equipment, materials, and machines necessary for restoration works, mosaic and painting decorations, the installation of statues, as well as for placing the iron hoops in the dome to stabilize cracks. Zabaglia made important advances in the technique used to graft and join wooden beams to assemble very large scaffolds and machines. He also founded a "School of Practical Mechanics." The handsome plates in this work depict Zabaglia's inventions including hoists, lifting machines, various kinds of scaffolds, machinery, tools, mosaics, artists at work, men working in a quarry, the transportation of marble and stone, the transportation and lifting of the Vatican obelisk by Fontana in the late 16th century, Zabaglia's transportation of the great obelisk of Augustus, etc. Our edition is enriched by eight new plates depicting the scaffolds made by Zabaglia's most skillful pupils, including Pietro Albertini and Angelo Paraccini. Added is a biography of Zabaglia with a detailed account of his other engineering achievements. A most handsome copy, finely bound. ? Dibner, Moving the Obelisks (1991). For the binder , see Cat. della Mostra Legature papali da Eugenio IV a Paolo VI (Rome: 1977), no. 284, tav. 204. Riccardi II, 642-"Bellissima…Non è noto chi abbia compilata quest'opera nella quale trovansi giudiziosi congegni meccanici per la costruzione dei fabbricati, immaginati dal Zabaglia, ma certo non descritti da lui, che era illetterato.".

        Geological Map of Durham..

      Folding engraved map (520 x 595 mm.) in fifteen sections, finely handcolored, backed with linen as issued (two sections also backed with marbled board as issued), preserved in the orig. marbled card slip-case (a little worn), orig. yellow printed paper label on upper cover. London: Published by J. Cary, March 1st 1824. First edition of William Smith's geological map of Durham, one in a series of county maps produced by Smith, each separately issued, which were the first detailed geological maps of specific areas. Smith's individual maps are extremely rare on the market. Smith produced the first geological map of England and Wales in 1815, which contained "an amazing amount of correct detail" (D.S.B.) and was the basis for all the geological maps that followed. In 1819 he began the publication of a geological atlas of England and Wales. Published in parts over five years, it remained unfinished, containing twenty-one maps of various English counties. "All the county maps published contain much more information than was shown on Smith's large map of 1815, and indicate that during the intervening years he had done much to increase his knowledge. The maps are based on Cary's county maps, and are headed 'By W. Smith, Mineral Surveyor.' Each map measures 21 ½ inches by 19 1/4 inches [across the ruled border]; the scale varies slightly but averages 3 miles to an inch."-Sheppard, William Smith: His Maps and his Memoirs (1920), p. 155. The map of Durham appeared in the sixth and last part (1824), and was also issued separately, as here. The title above appears in the upper margin; another title is given in a circular tablet in the lower left corner: "A New Map of Durham, divided into Wards, exhibiting its Roads, Rivers, Parks, &c. By John Cary Engraver. 1824." "One of his significant achievements was the identification of the presence of coal in the eastern parts of County Durham, beneath the overlying Magnesian Limestone. The advice he gave to the landowners there led to the establishment of new collieries, resulting in the construction of port and dock facilities at both Hartlepool and Seaham Harbour during the 1830s; both ports were connected by rail to the new mines."-Skempton et al., eds., A Biographical Dictionary of Civil Engineers, p. 639. On this copy of the map the railways in the south-east of the county have been added later in manuscript. Fine copy. ? Davis, "William Smith's Geological Atlas and the Later History of the Plates," in J. Soc. Bib. of Nat. Hist., Vol. 2, pp. 388-95-"The maps were sold separately in sheets or mounted to fold into a cover bearing a special yellow printed label for each county." Eyles, "William Smith (1769-1839): a Bibliography" in J. Soc. Bib. of Nat. Hist., Vol. 5, pp. 87-109, no. 33.

        Sketches and Scenery in Angus and Mearns, Drawn From Nature, and Upon Stone.

      Montrose: John Smith, c.1824. - Oblong folio; 350 x 500mm. pp. 3; 20 engraved plates. Complete in four parts as issued in the original printed wrappers, with the sheet of explanatory notes to the first three parts [possibly not issued in the final part]. Parts 2 - 4 have been strengthened on the spine with old paper, probably contemporaneously, and possibly as issued. The first two parts were printed by Forrester and Morrison, but Paterson was obviously unhappy with the results. He turned to Hullmandel for the final two parts and these engravings are sharper and clearer than the earlier efforts. The plates are: I. Craighall Rattray, Glammis Castle, Cortachy Castle, Fasque House, Castle and Town of Brechin Town; II. Dun House, Loch of Lintrathen, Edzell Castle, Town of Montrose, Denfinella; III. Abbey of Arbroath, Kinnaird Castle, Blackhall, Rossie Castle, Dundee From the River; IV. Brechin Castle, Fotheringham House, Bridge of Die, Montrose from Langley Park, Crathas. Scarce. No copy traced at auction. Abbey 497 with only the third part. Copac lists the National Library of Scotland as holding 7 prints only, with no text or wrappers at 300 x 480mm. According to the front wrappers two editions were available; the Royal Edition, presumably as the NLS part set, and the Super Royal Edition, as here. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Breslau, 26. I. 1824.

      1824. 1¼ SS. auf Doppelblatt 4to. Nur wenige Monate vor seinem frühen Tod mit nur 44 Jahren, wohl an seinen Verleger Arnold in Dresden, die Handschrift bereits vom Schlaganfall gezeichnet: "Ew. Wohlgebohren geehrtes Schreiben vom 16. Januar habe ich erhalten und danke ergebenst für gütige Berechnung und Übersendung, die Anweisungen [...] sind acceptirt worden. Aber J. Fr. Korn hat nur die an ihn gerichtete mit der mündlichen Erklärung b. m. comittirt, daß er diese Post bereits in Leipzig bezahlt habe. Ich lege daher diese Assignation zur weitern Veranlassung wieder bey. - Ich bin mit Vergnügen bereit die ersten 7 Bände meiner Schriften nach Ihrem Wunsche einer nochmahligen Durchsicht zu unterwerfen, und will auch, da Sie es wünschen, die Verwandlung des Mexiko in ein Mejiko acceptiren, ob sie mir gleich einigermaßen würgend eingeht. Die Durchsicht zu bewirken, muß ich Sie jedoch um Übersendung eines Exemplars der ersten 7 Bände: Erzstufen 3 / Prinz Friedrich 1 / Mexiko 3 ersuchen, da ich von allen meinen Sachen nur ein einziges Exemplar, das ich meiner Frau geschenkt, besitze. Je früher ich das Exemplar erhalte, desto gewisser hoffe ich die 7 Theile bis zum May u. druckfertig remittiren zu können. Können Sie mir das Exemplar schon broschirt schicken so würde dadurch ungemein viel Zeit erspart werden. Wünschen Sie übrigens auch daß ich meine neuen Schriften für den besondern Abdruck arrangire, so bitte ich um gütige Nachricht, um in Zeiten anfangen zu können. Diese wären das Liebhabertheater, der böhmische Mägdekrieg, der Wunsch des Canfu, [...] Christine und ihr Hof. - Beifolgendes Päckchen bitte ich an Winkler [?] gelangen zu lassen. Es enthält eine neue Erzählung für die Abendzeitung. Sie würde zum Neujahr schon eingegangen seyn aber eine [...] Halblähmung an der linken Seite [...] hat mich in jeder Beziehung furchtbar zurückgesetzt. Noch immer bin ich nicht hergestellt, wie Sie aus der Unbildkeit meiner Handschrift entschuldigend ersehen werden [...]". - Gebräunt; unbedeutende Randeinrisse.
