        Veda Vyasa (?). A Vernacular version of the Tenth Book of the Bhagavata Purana. Manuscript.

      Punjab (probably), Samvat 1825 (= 1768-69). 23 x 15 cm. The original painted clothcovers over cardboard preserved but partly at edges covered with a later rebinding in persian style in brown leather with flap. Covers and flap preserved but detached from spine. The 6 painted miniatures on frontcover are in rather bad shape (depicting Krishna in many colours and with gold). 6 miniatures on inside froncover are in better shape, many colours with gold (Krishna and a Guru ?). Backcover with 2 large miniatures in rather bad shape, multicoloured (a Guru and Visnu ?). On inside backcover 6 miniatures, multicoloured and with gold (probably depicting local dignitaries, perhaps royals with text on 4). Native polished paper 22,8 x 15 cm. Text in black ink within triple framed borders in orange, red and black (17 x 10 cm.). 15 lines of text per page in Gurmukhi script and Indian vernacular and seems to be written in one hand. Stitching occasionally loose and broken. Some folios frayed in margins. 2 flyleaves (blank, but framed with coloured borders on both sides). FF 493 of text, numbered 1-493 (493 recto: colophon - verso blank) + 1 unnumb. leaf (recto blank, text on verso where the date Samvat 1825 is given, stating that the finishing of the manuscript took place 1768-69). At end one leaf blank with borders, but torn. The manuscript appears to be complete.The 87 fine miniatures in the text, Pahari style of the Punjab Hills, probably a rough form of Basohli or Jammu, are well preserved, all under small original tissue-guards and they are labourously painted in blue, white, green, red, purple and gold. A few of the miniatures are floral but most depicts the feats of Krishna.Miniature sizes: 7 miniatures (8-5 x 4-6 cm.) - 4 full-page miniatures (17 x10 cm.) - 58 half-page miniatures - 13 miniatures in 1/3-page - 3 miniatures in 1/4-page. - 2 miniatures (5 x 4 cm.).. An extremely scarce, large, early and profusely illustrated Indian manuscript. The tenth book, dedicated to Krishna, is responsible for the widespread popularity of the Bhagavata Purana. Book Ten includes the most enduring images and stories of Krishna: the mischievous child who steals butter; the God as a child who holds the entire universe within himself; the boy who can slay demons and move an entire mountain with one finger; the cowherd who is the love of all the gopis, making them leave all their duties to follow him.The tenth book is by far the lengthiest, taking up almost one quarter of the entire Bhagavata. While the Mahabharata and the Bhagavad Gita show Krishna in various roles as teacher and diplomat, book 10 shows Krishna simply engaging in lila, or divine and intimate play with his devotees. It presents this intimate relationship with God as the highest goal of human existenceThe Bhagavata is widely recognized as the best known and most influential of the Puranas, and is sometimes referred to as the "Fifth Veda" along with itihasa and other puranas. It is unique in Indian religious literature; for its emphasis on the practice of bhakti, compared to the more theoretical bhakti of the Bhagavad Gita; for its redefining of dharma; and for the extent of its description of God in a human-like form. It is also the source for many of the popular stories of Krishna's childhood told for centuries in the Indian subcontinent. The intense and personal bhakti described in the Bhagavata is directed toward Krishna as Vishnu in human form. The tenth book (or canto) of the Bhagavata is dedicated to Krishna, takes up about one quarter of the entire Bhagavata. It includes the most comprehensive collection of stories about the life of Krishna, showing him in all the stages and conditions of human life. It also includes instruction in the practice of bhakti, an analysis of bhakti, and descriptions of the different types of bhakti. Many Vaishnavas consider Srimad Bhagvatam to be non-different from Krishna and to be the literary form of Krishna

        Illustrations of the Book of Job

      London: William Blake, No.3 Fountain Court, Strand, March 8 1825, actually 1826. One of 65 copies of proofs on French paper, the rarest state. 22 pure line engravings by William Blake on copper comprising a title page and 21 plates. First edition, the rarest state being one of only 65 proofs on French paper. All prints on large paper c 41 x 27 cms in book mounts and housed in a handsome large purple cloth clamshell box with a black morocco label stamped in gilt on the upper cover. Some of the usual light foxing to a few of the plates, most pronounced on plate 17 but very good, well-defined impressions with depth. Considered to be Blake's masterpieces as a printmaker and one of his greatest achievements. As Ray writes in the Illustrator and the Book in England, "the modest size of the central panels does not prevent them from ranking with the supreme masterpieces of graphic art". The title page, along with the borders of each plate, were added after the central images. The title page isn't numbered by the others are in the top right hand corner. All the plates are dated March 8, 1825 except Plate 1 which is mistakenly dated 1828. This edition of 65 proofs on French paper is the rarest of the three states. There were also 100 copies on wove paper without the word proof and 150 copies on India paper.

        An Account, Historical, Political, and Statistical of the United Provinces of Rio de la Plata:

      London: R. Ackermann, , 1825. With an Appendix, concerning the Usurpation of Monte Video by the Portuguese and Brazilian Governments. Octavo (210 × 128 mm). Contemporary calf, dark tan morocco label, flat spine, compartments formed by a decorative roll, gilt with attractive arabesqued foliate tools to the compartments, single fillet gilt panel to the boards, milled edge-roll in blind, edges sprinkled brown. Large folding lithographic frontispiece map printed on thick paper, coloured in outline, of the Plata, Parana, Uruguay and Grande rivers, lithographic plan of Buenos Aires. A little rubbed, particularly on the joints, the front just starting, hinges sound despite the weight of the frontispiece map, and the contents clean. A very good copy. First edition in English, simultaneously published in Spanish. Following the signing of a controversial Treaty of Amity, Commerce, and Navigation between Britain and the United Provinces, which essentially recognised their independence from Spain, Nuñez was sent to London as secretary to the Legation at the English and French Courts, and immediately published the present work, a comprehensive description of the region. The first part comprised the text of a letter "which was circulated in London in manuscript, and written for the information of the British Ministry … the primary object of this letter [being that] it might contribute to supply the want of information perceptible in the countries of Europe relative to that part of America. The letter gives a brief but perspicacious idea of the origin of the insurrection against Spain, the political constitution of the country, and its progress in the march of civilisation" (Introduction). The second part offers a digest of the more immediate history of the region and a "collection of statistical particulars, and geographical notices of all the towns of the United Provinces [together with] a slight explanation by way of conclusion, concerning the disputes with Portugal and Brazil, relative to that place". A pencilled note to the front free endpaper records that this copy was "From Lord Metcalfe's Library", while a neat later bookplate to the front pastedown shows it to have belonged to John Fair, a merchant banker, whose investments in railways had much to do with the expansion and modernisation of Buenos Aires. Attractive, and similarly provenanced.

Baudry, Paris,, 1825. translated into English immediately from the original Arabic; with explanatory notes, taken from the most approved commentators. To which is prefixed a preliminary discourse.

Lightly rubbed overall, spines sunned, faint offsetting from frontispiece and plates, surface-splitting to inner hinge vol. I, otherwise internally crisp and fresh. A very good copy. A later London edition of the second and most authoritative English version of the Qur'an, first published in 1734. George Sale was a solicitor by training and "the first notable English Arabist who was not in holy orders … From 1726 to 1734 he was closely associated with the Society for the Propagation of Christian Knowledge, which he served in his legal capacity. Meanwhile he was working on a translation of the Qur'an … a landmark in the history of Qur'anic studies" (Holt, Studies in the History of the Near East, p. 58), the only previous complete translation of the Qur'an into English having been Alexander Ross's 1649 version of du Ryer's notoriously inaccurate attempt to render it into French. Despite Sale's claim to have translated directly from the Arabic, he also acknowledges his debt to the 1698 Latin translation of Ludovico Marracci, confessor to Pope Innocent XI; notably, his citation of Muslim commentators is restricted to those already cited by his predecessor. Yet Sale's work, and in particular his extensive Preliminary Discourse discussing both the biography of the Prophet and the Arabian context of Islam, evinces "an enlightened and objective attitude which may have been responsible for his gradual dissocation from the activities of the SPCK" (ibid.), in contrast to the openly polemical intentions of Marracci, who included a preface offering a lengthy refutation of the Qur'an and Muhammad's prophethood. Sale's balanced presentation of Muhammad and Islamic origins was much admired by his contemporaries, including Voltaire, Lessing and especially Gibbon, whose treatment of Arabian history and Islam in his Decline and Fall relies heavily on Sale. In 1921 Edward Denison Ross claimed that Sale's version had still not been superseded, and more than fifty years later Sale's objectivity guarded him from criticism in Edward Said's Orientalism (1978).

The text is watermarked "1818".Contemporary half red half over pink boards, smooth spine ruled and lettered in gilt, hinges expertly and almost invisibly repaired, all edges sprinkled red. With the bookplate of Joel Spitz on front paste-down. A near fine copy with all the plates bright and fresh.Provenance: FH (crowned monogram stamped on front pastedown). Despite having the same title as the folio of 1821, this work, published at three guineas, contains a different series of plates, some drawn from earlier works. The work includes six plates of horse racing, ten of fox hunting, six of coursing, twelve of shooting, and two of fishing, together with others of poaching and the baiting sports about which Alken himself was so critical. No doubt he believed that representing them as ?'National Sports?' was better than pretending they did not exist. The one sport depicted that does not involve animals is prize fighting. "Alken himself seems to have drawn in colours and engraved the plates, which like most of his book illustrations are peculiarly pleasing on account of their small size. The preface deals with, and condemns, the prevailing practice of baiting animals, although the three last plates depict various forms of this barbarous sport."

Nach Abbruch des Studiums, unternahm er eine Reise in die Schweiz, Oberitalien und Tirol, besuchte anschließend die Akademien in München und Düsseldorf, hier studierte er bei Karl Ferdinand Sohn (1805-1867). 1848 ging er nach Amerika, wo zahlreiche Porträts und Landschaftsbilder entstanden; eine Reise nach Kuba schloß sich an. 1853 ging er nach Paris und fertigte für den Verlag Goupil in Kuba und Amerika entstandene Zeichnungen zur Vervielfältigung an. 1854-56 hielt er sich für längere Zeit in Belgien und in München auf, kehrte dann in seine Geburtsstadt zurück. Seine Hauptmotive waren hier die heimische Landschaft, daneben das Porträt. 1847 unternahm Hoeffler eine Reise ins Berner Oberland, Station machte er dabei in Handeck am Grimselpaß, in dessen Umgebung zahlreiche Studien, insbesondere lavierte oder weißgehöhte Zeichnungen entstanden. Es ist davon auszugehen, daß die vorliegende, nicht datierte Zeichnung während dieses Aufenthaltes entstand. Trotz romantischer Elemente, wie etwa die abgebrochene Fichte oder der Nebel, galt Hoefflers Hauptaugenmerk malerischen Zusammenhängen, er suchte das Atmosphärische des gezeigten Landschaftsausschnittes einzufangen.

        The principles of political economy: with a sketch of the rise and progress of the science

      Edinburgh: printed for William and Charles Tait; and Longman and Co., London 1825. 8vo., (iii) - x + 423 + (1)pp., wanting the half-title else a very good copy bound in contemporary half calf and marbled boards, rebacked in cloth, corners worn. First edition. Einaudi 3567. Goldsmiths 24417. Kress C.1489. Mattioli 2329. The friend and protégé of David Ricardo, McCulloch 'was arguably the first professional economist. He published a steady stream of seriously researched and lucidly expounded articles, pamphlets, and books. From 1820 (when he first offered private classes in political economy to Edinburgh students) to 1837, when he left his London chair, he was also a conscientious lecturer in the subject. As early as 1822 his reputation was such that he was invited to write the first substantive article on political economy to appear in the Encyclopaedia Britannica>. ..... This was the article that McCulloch expanded into his popular textbook, Principles of political economy, with a sketch of the rise and progress of the science> (1825), which went through five editions.'

        A New American Atlas containing Maps of the Several States of the North American Union, projected and drawn on a uniform scale from documents found in public offices of the United States and State Governments, and other original and authentic information by Henry S. Tanner

      H.S. Tanner, Philadelphia 1825 - (23 1/2 x 16 1/2 inches). Letterpress half-title, 1p. index and 18pp. text. Engraved title with vignette of the "First Landing of Columbus in the New World, 21 fine hand-coloured engraved map sheets (16 maps on 16 double-page sheets; 1 map on one folding sheet; and 1 map on 4 double-page sheets), some expert restoration to corners. Expertly bound to style in half brown straight-grained morocco over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spine divided into six compartments by double gilt rules, lettered in the second compartment, the others with repeat decoration in gilt, contained within a modern red morocco-backed cloth box, the spine in seven compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second, the others with repeat tooling in gilt A fine copy of the improved second edition of "one the most magnificent atlases ever published in the United States" (Ristow). Tanner's New American Atlas contained the most accomplished series of maps of America that had yet appeared in an atlas. Of the greatest importance were the maps of American states, which were highly detailed and brilliantly coloured. While New York and Florida each had their own dedicated page, other double-page sheets showcased multiple states at a time. As the title claims, these maps were drawn up using a careful combination of original surveys and the best existing published sources. The evident high cost of production meant that the publishers took the decision to issue the maps originally in five separate parts which were published from 1819 to 1823. A first collected edition was published in 1823, and this second revised edition appeared in 1825. The maps, all of which are carefully hand-coloured, include a world map, 4 maps of continents, a map of South America on a large folding sheet made up from two joined sheets (the index calls for two separate sheets), a map of North America on 4 sheets and 11 double-page maps of the various States. The very large map of North America is of particular beauty and note. Wheat writes: "This map was a landmark - a great cartographical achievement . Tanner made good use of a large number of intervening map, those of interest here being Humboldt's 'New Spain,' Pike's various maps, Long's map, and 'Pedro Walker's Map of New California . This 1822 map of North America was the progenitor of a long line of famous maps" (Wheat, II: pp. 82-87) Contemporary reviews were favourable: the New American Atlas "is decidedly one of the most splendid works of the kind ever executed in this country" ( United States Gazette , September 1823). Never "has either America or Europe, produced a geographical description of the several States of the Union, so honorable to the Arts, and so creditable to the nation as Tanner's American Atlas." ( National Advocate 25 August 1824). Perhaps the most enthusiastic report came from the scholar Jared Sparks who wrote in the April 1824 issue of the North American Review that "as an American Atlas, we believe Mr. Tanner's work to hold a rank far above any other, which has been published." This second edition is notable for the significant cartographic changes made by Tanner, reflecting new boundaries, counties, towns and discoveries since the initial maps were published. For example, the map of Illinois shows significant changes to the mapping of the headwaters of the Mississippi, and the map of Louisiana depicts Indian lands with vast changes from the first edition.

        Îles des Papous. Divers portraits de naturels vus sur l'île Rawak

      [Paris], 1825. Proof before numbering, 240 x 320 mm. (trimmed to plate mark), with rough trial colouring two two figures, "43" added in ink at lower right; very good. An intriguing trial proof of an important ethnographic plate ultimately included in the official account of the Freycinet voyage. The use of trial colour on this proof marks it out as quite significant, as we can actually witness the process by which the details of the publication were defined: given that contemporary voyagers and scientists were concerned to make the work as accurate as possible, this rough proof is a tangible reminder of the technical difficulties of such work. The plate shows nine portrait busts of islanders from Rawak, an important port of call for the expedition in 1818, and a place where they made a very close study of both the people and the natural history of the region, work which was followed by Duperrey a few years later. The Uranie made a long stay in the region of Rawak, and as published plates such as this one amply attest, the local people were closely studied. Not only is this a proof before numbers, the last stage in the printing process, before the Historique album itself was printed, two of the figures have also had a trial colouring, very roughly executed, but clearly related to the finished versions of the plate as published. As with a view in Hawaii we have also catalogued recently, this plate 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.

Visto il successo venne ripubblicata un'ulteriore volta dalla Librairie Encyclopedique de Roret nel 1825 (è l'opera di cui disponiamo), seguita da un'altra ripubblicazione nel 1852. Il nuovo Duhamel venne aumentato e arricchito grazie anche ai disegni de P.J.Redouté e P.Bessa. Duhamel è considerato il più grande agronomo del XVIII Secolo.
