        Plantes rares du Jardin de Genève.

      - Genève, Barbezat et Delarue, 1825 (-1827). 4 parts (bound in 1 volume). Folio (327 x 254mm). pp. (2), 92, with 24 stipple-engraved colour-printed plates, of which a few finished by hand. Contemporary boards, spine with manuscript title. The rare original issue with the printed front-wrapper serving as title. In 1829 a consolidated issue was published with a separate printed title page dated 1829. Apart from the title-page both issues are identical. The present rare work was published a few years after Candolle settled down in Geneva, were he became director of the 'Jardin Botanique'. The work describes a number of rare plants of this famous botanical garden. The remarkably fine stipple-engravings are all beautifully printed in colour, some finished by hand. Candolle was one of the great botanists of his time and more than 300 plants are dedicated to him. He was the author of some superbly illustrated large works such as 'Histoire Naturelle des Plantes Grasses' and 'Les Liliacées' both illustrated by Redouté.Great Flower Books, p. 53; Nissen ZBI, 327; Stafleu & Cowan 1000.

        A Brief Sketch of the Life of Horace Carter, Who was Executed in Worcester, Dec. 7, 1825 for the Crime of Rape, Together with Remarks on Early Education.

      Worcester [Mass.]: n. p., 1825. First edition.. Somewhat worn and crimped; stained throughout; a good, sound copy.. Unbound pamphlet rather roughly whip-stitched in an early hand along the spine, 8.38 x 5.25 inches, 16 pages. An uncommon account of a criminal life, shot through with equal parts remorse and self-justification: "I was born in Sturbridge in this State in 1799. My Father was an honest man but with sorrow I say, that the character of my mother was different. As soon as I was old enough, she encouraged me in petty thefts, and often sent me to steal fruit, green corn, and other like articles from the neighbor's fields. . . . I lived with my parents until I was nine years old, during which time I was never sent to school." Carter hires out his labor, falls in with bad company, drinks to excess and gambles. He becomes acquainted with the criminal Mrs. Bathsheba Fay, is jailed over a bond, later arrested over a borrowed coat, assaults a constable, is put to hard labor, etc., until late after a cold, wet night of drinking ardent spirits in bad company, "I came to the Poor House where I saw the light of a fire. I requested admission. I had no intention until after I had forced my way into the house, of committing the crime for which I am condemned.--The facts are already known, and I do not deny them. I was so much in liquor that I cannot tell whether I did actually commit the crime or not." The appended remarks note in part the "fact that by far the largest part of those who are publicly punished for the breach of human laws, are unable to read. This fact speaks volumes in praise of the system of free schools, existing in this Commonwealth, and many other of the American states. By this means, the salutary streams of knowledge are brought to the door of every dwelling; and every parent ought to be deemed a felon and punished as such, who suffers his children to grow up to manhood, without the knowledge of their duties as members of civil society and as accountable creatures. With an education Carter might have been a useful citizen." Instead, as a footnote remarks, "The unfortunate Carter, from the time he left prison till he was launched into eternity, manifested a careless indifference which was truly astonishing." AAS notes of its copy, "American Antiquarian Society copy inscribed (referring to the remarks on early education?): By May Newell, printer." This copy with the inscription in ink on the front wrapper, "David Whitney Jr's Property Read & Return this the Borrower must return this," with an additional inscription with his signature on the following page, "If is this loose / And you it find / Restore it me / For it is mine."

        Illustrations of the Book of Job.

      - London: March 8, 1825 [i.e. London: John Linnell, 1874]. Large folio, title-page and 21 plates printed on India paper. Mounted on large sheets as issued, enclosed in a blue morocco box (slightly worn) lettered in gilt. Bookplate of Robert Pirie. A very good set of the posthumous edition printed from the original plates (with the word "proof" removed) for Linnell by Holdgate Brothers. The India paper set is the best printing of these famous plates which comprise Blake's major single achievement as a printmaker after the illuminated books. Illustrations of the Book of Job was Blake's last completed prophetic book: the text, a series of biblical quotations, is above and below each image. "It was produced while Blake was still working on Jerusalem, his most obscure book; yet the illustrations are Blake's most lucid; and they are the supreme example of his reading the Bible in its spiritual sense" (S. Foster Damon, A Blake Dictionary, p. 217). "The modest size of the central panels does not prevent them from ranking with the supreme masterpieces of graphic art" (Ray, Illustrator and the Book in England #8).Bentley, Blake Books, 421B.

        The Life of Nelson. Two Volumes.

      1825. SOUTHEY, Robert. The Life of Nelson. Two volumes. viii, 264 ; viii, 288 pp. With two frontispieces. 8vo., 165 x 103 mm. Bound in full navy straight-grained morocco, French fillet borders on covers, spine gilt, red morocco labels, t.e.g. London: John Murray, 1825. New Edition of Robert Southey's esteemed biography of Nelson, written around the same time the author was appointed poet laureate of England. Southey's objective was to write a pocket edition on Nelson, "clear and concise enough to become a manual for the young sailor, which he may carry about with him" (author's preface). In this he was certainly successful. Renowned for its straight forward, no-nonsense narrative style, this is one of the poet's greatest prose works. Sir Humphrey Davy described this work as "an immortal monument raised by genius to valour." Hinges strengthened, some chips at the head of the spine of the second volume, but an excellent copy from the distinguished library of Calvin Bullock, with bookplate.

        Vellum Manuscripts - (2) Lease Indentures for Wine Vaults

      United Kingdom, 1825. Royal Tunbridge Wells, in the County of Kent, 1825-1826. TWO consecutive manuscript lease indentures on vellum, for the historic wine vaults in Royal Tunbridge Wells, the premises ultimately being leased from a wine merchant to an aristocrat, for a term of thirty-six years. These documents are very large, measuring 69 x 54cm and 57 x 30cm, respectively, each with original signatures, clerical annotations to verso, and bearing red wax seals. Both documents in very good, bright, and original condition, made in a neat hand. The wine vault described here dates to the 1700s, and is now the showroom of a fireplace retailer (The modern address for the vaults is 58 Mount Ephraim, Tunbridge Wells, TN48BB). A revelation of viticulture history in an affluent city whose early years remain little-known, comes forth in these two original and singular manuscript indentures, each signed in the original and bearing remarkable red wax seals. The wine vaults, wine rooms and premises in Tunbridge Wells, built and established in the 1700s, belonged to a London wine merchant named Mr. Thomas Thomas by the 1820s. At the time, Tunbridge Wells was a popular resort town for the wealthy and elite socialites, frequented by royalty. The first document is dated 29 December 1825, Mr. Thomas Thomas of Cooper Row in Crutched-Friars, London, a wine merchant, leasing to Mr. Edward Neal of Tunbridge Wells in Sussex, another wine merchant. The signature and red wax seal of the lessor is found on the bottom fold. Excerpts from the manuscript: "... All those premises consisting of two wine rooms and wine and other vaults and cellars adjoining situate and being in the Road leading from Tonbridge Wells aforesaid to Frant and attached to and connected and communicating with a certain messuage or tenement and other premises now in the possession or occupation of Crawford Esquire..." "... said rooms - vaults cellars and premises are now in the possession of the said Edward Neal and used by him for the purposes of his business. Together with the yard, ways, waters, watercourses, drains, paths, passages, lights, easements, advantages and appurtenances to the said premises..." "... entitled to the freehold and inheritance of the said premises... term of thirty-six years and three-quarters of another year... yearly rent or sum of fifty pounds..." "And moreover shall and will paint in a good and workmanlike manner the outside wood and ironwork... at least twice in oil colors in every seven years of the said term..." End excerpts. The second document, written only one week later, 3 January 1826, subsequently names Mr. Walter Sprott, gentleman, of Tunbridge Wells in Sussex, as the new lessee of the same wine vaults, rooms and premises, still owned by wine merchant Thomas Thomas who is again named herein. The formerly named lessee, Edward Neal, evidently repealed his rights and obligations by selling his lease agreement to Sprott for 200 pounds sterling, and a replacement thirty-six year lease indenture was drawn. This document bears the signatures of both parties, as well two red wax seals, one being an especially nice bust of the aristocrat. [The national archives, England, holds the will of Walter Sprott made in 1844, which would most likely name the heir to his estate and possibly the next successor to the present lease.] Excerpts from the manuscript: "This indenture made the third day of January in the year of our Lord One thousand eight hundred and twenty six Between Edward Neal of Tunbridge Wells in the County of Kent wine merchant of the one part, and Walter Sprott of Tunbridge Wells in the County of Kent gentleman of the other part..." "...the said Thomas Thomas by virtue of every right power and authority in him..." "And whereas the said Walter Sprott hath contracted and agreed with the said Edward Neal for the purchase of the said rooms vaults cellars and premises comprised in the said Indenture of Lease for all the now residue term of the thirty-six years and three quarters of another year" "... in consideration of the sum of Two Hundred Pounds of lawful money current in England to the said Edward Neal" End excerpts. Today, Royal Tunbridge Wells (often shortened to Tunbridge Wells) is a large affluent town in western Kent, England. It is situated about 40 miles south-east of central London by road. By the early nineteenth century Tunbridge Wells had become a place for the well-to-do to visit and make their homes. It became a fashionable resort town again following visits by the Duchess of Kent in the 1820s, Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1834 and 1835 The town benefited from a new estate on Mount Pleasant and the building of the Trinity church in 1827. Improvements, gas lighting, and police service attracted new population, totalling 9,100 residents by 1837. . Very Good.

En outre, cet ouvrage est resté malheureusement célèbre dans l'histoire de la gastro-entérologie pour l'erreur commise par les auteurs sur la nature de l’acide dans le suc gastrique, qui la définirent comme lactique, contre les expériences de Prout en Angleterre et les recherches de Tiedmann et Gmelin en Allemagne qui comprirent qu'il s'agissait d'un acide chlorhydrique. Malgré des rousseurs et l'estampille de l'Institut Catholique de Paris (don de Jacques Liouville), bon exemplaire.

        Report on Rail-Roads and Locomotive Engines, addressed to the chairman of the committee of the Liverpool and Manchester projected rail-road.

      FIRST EDITION. Published early in 1825, this is one of the first books on railways. Sylvester?s Report was commissioned by the committee of the Liverpool & Manchester company, and pays close attention to the physical benefits of conveyance by rails rather than by canals, with power supplied by steam engines rather than by horses. It is a carefully calculated advocation for steam-powered railways.Skempton 1484.8vo, 39 pages, errata slip. Stitched as issued, uncut. Title slightly dust-soiled and with a tiny tear in the fore-edge repaired, last leaf a little creased, but a fine copy.

        ÃŽles Sandwich: Maisons de Kraïmokou..

      [Paris], 1825. Proof before numbering, 290 x 420 mm., a fine rich impression on wove paper, "86" added in manuscript to upper right; very good. A beautiful view of the house of "Kraïmokou" in Hawaii, showing the making of tapa in the foreground. This proof before numbering represents the last stage in the printing process, before the Historique album itself was printed, and is known to have come from the Freycinet family archive: its presence there is no surprise, given how closely Freycinet is known to have supervised the production of the official account of the voyage, and the close watch he kept on all details of the illustrations particularly.Kraïmokou was an important liaison with the French when they visited the island in 1819, and featured heavily in the published account because he expressly requested that he be baptised by the cleric on board, Quelen. As the caption here confirms, Kraïmokou was the "chief Minister" of the King.

        A series of three views of the Botanic Garden on the island of St. Vincent, West Indies

      [Glasgow: printed for R.Griffin & Company, 1825. Set of three uncoloured lithographs, drawn on stone by J. Watson (?), from original drawings by L. Guilding, one cut to the edge of the image with loss to the artist's name, two cut to the edge of the image, all on early pink paper mounts within ink ruled borders. A possibly unique series of three very early lithographic proofs of views of the island of St. Vincent in the West Indies. These fine views, after original drawings by the naturalist Lansdown Guilding, are uncoloured proofs of the three views that were published, hand-coloured, in Guilding's An Account of the Botanic Garden in the Island of St. Vincent , published in Glasgow in 1825. The fourth plate, a plan of the gardens rather than a view, was also included in the published work according to Abbey. Only one of the present images is captioned but, according to Abbey, the images are as follows: 1. House of the Superintendent [of the Botanic Garden] 2. [View of the Botanic Garden St. Vincent. / Taken from the Superintendent's House] 3. [Botanic Garden, / from the bottom of the Central Walk] Abbey quotes from a contemporary prospectus concerning the distribution of the work on the island, which notes that `only a few copies have been sent out for sale, but Mr. Draper will receive at the Gazette Office the names of those who are disposed to encourage the Bookseller who printed it' BM (NH) II, p.750; Cf. Abbey Travel II, 691; not in Sabin.
