        An album of original watercolours of cone shells and cowries, "Ex Museo G.C.B."

      circa 1817-, 1825. Quarto album, 71 leaves with a total of 114 watercolour drawings of exotic shells (23 of cowries on 9 leaves, 91 of cone shells on 62 leaves), paper watermarked Whatman "Turkey Mills" 1817 or 1818 (endpapers 1825); a particularly handsome album bound in original brown straight-grained morocco gilt, professionally rebacked with original spine laid down, red silk endpapers, spine label "Conus et Cypraea ex Museo, G.C.B." Shells of the Indian and Pacific Oceans. An exquisite album from the high-watermark of shell collecting in Europe, with over 100 fine watercolours of exotic shells, an impressive number from Indo-Pacific waters. The lettering on the spine of the present album suggests that it is a record of an individual collection, probably since dispersed, assembled by the mysterious "G.C.B."The earliest watermark of 1817 represents a useful starting date for this compilation, while the fact that the endpapers are watermarked 1825 - and indeed the style of the binding itself - confirms that it was compiled within a relatively short period of time. This was an era of great refinement in shell collecting, with famous works by George Perry and William Swainson dating from this period. Interest in shells had been aroused by the various exploratory and trading voyages of the second half of the eighteenth century, Captain Cook's voyages being the most significant. After a quiet period during the French Revolution and the Napoleonic War, collectors were active again from 1815 onwards. Among the best known of the period were Henry Constantine Jennings (1731-1819), William John Broderip (1789-1859), William Swainson (1789-1855), and the Earl of Tankerville (1743-1822).What is undeniable is that this was a particularly fine collection of its kind for this date (it includes, for example, almost 100 varieties of conus: when the famous Tankerville collection was catalogued in 1825, one of the best known collections, it included 141). The great majority of the shells depicted are derived from the Indian or Pacific Oceans, and notably include Conus marmoreus (west Pacific), Conus litteratus (Indo Pacific), Conus quercinus (Indian Ocean etc.), Conus textile (Indo-Pacific, Australia, etc.), Conus spurius (Gulf of Mexico), the striking Conus imperialis (Indo-Pacific), and the grand Conus leopardus (Indo-Pacific).The absorbing mystery of the album is the identity of the initials "G.C.B." The initial reaction of most people with whom we have discussed the album has been to speculate on a possible connection with perhaps one of the most famous families to collect in this field, the Cavendish-Bentinck family (and particularly those associated with Margaret Cavendish-Bentinck, Duchess of Portland and doyenne of the famous house Bulstrode (1715-1785). This is a tantalising prospect, but so far it has not proven possible to make any firm connection, most especially because of the initial letter "G": the only member of the family who might conceivably fit the bill is Lord (William) George H. Cavendish-Bentinck (1802-1848), a soldier and politician with no known interest in natural history.By the same token it is true that the great collector the Earl of Tankerville was actually born Charles Bennet, but again this does not account for the "G" in the initials: Tankerville would otherwise have been a particularly interesting fit as he died in 1822 and because of his known interest in the conus varieties.Beyond these tangible guesses it becomes difficult to make any terribly helpful guesses. A distant acquaintance of Sir Joseph Banks, for example, was one Admiral George Cranfield Berkeley. Nor is there a smoking gun in J.M. Chalmers-Hunt, Natural History Auctions 1700-1972, despite some close sounding names such as a Count Bentinck who had a sale at Sothebys in 1815.See also S. Peter Dance, Shell Collecting An Illustrated History (pp.135-45).

        The Improvisatrice

      London - Hurst, Robinson & Co., 1825 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A beautifully bound copy of Landon's The ImprovisatriceBound in pink leather with gilt lettering and bordersThere is a C. Smith Bookseller's label to the front pastedownLetitia Elizabeth Landon (1802 1838), English poet and novelist, better known by her initials L. E. L. Her reputation, while high in the 19th century, fell during most of the 20th as literary fashions changed. and Landon's poetry was perceived as overly simple and sentimental. In recent years, however, scholars and critics have increasingly studied her work, beginning with Germaine Greer for example in the 1970s. Critics such as Isobel Armstrong argue that the seeming simplicity of poetry such as Landon's is deceptive, and that women poets of the 19th century often employed a method of writing which allows for multiple, concurrent levels of meaning. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. The outer hinges are slightly cracked. There is some mild wear to the extremities including mild rubbing. Internally the pages are bright and clean with the odd spot, and spotting to the frontispiece and title page. Overall the condition of the book is very good..

        Ryoritsu [trans.: Fancy Dishes]

      Many full-page or double-page woodcuts in the text (ten of which are printed in delicate color) & woodcuts in the text. Four vols. Small 8vo, orig. blue embossed wrappers (two vols. with some repaired worming), orig. block printed title label on each upper cover, new stitching. Tokyo: 1825-35. First edition of this famous illustrated book. The restaurant Yaozen, founded in 1717 in Tokyo, was considered one of the two best gourmet restaurants in Japan for several hundred years (it continues today as a catering business). It was so famous that it was selected by the shogun to cater the official reception banquet for Admiral Perry. The restaurant had traditionally been patronized by high government officials and the literati of Japan for many generations. The fourth owner, Zenshiro Kuriyama (d. 1839), wrote the present book describing the most famous menus and presentations -- including Japanese, Buddhist, Chinese, vegetarian, and Western -- which the restaurant could prepare. The illustrations are particularly beautiful and delicate and the artists involved in the making of this book, all of whom were patrons of the restaurant, include Hoitsu Sakai, Buncho Tani, Hokusai Katsushika, Keisai Kuwagata, and Kunisada. Two famous poets -- Nanbo Ota and Bosai Kameda -- have furnished texts for the book. The woodcuts, which are very handsome, include a detailed view of the restaurant, depictions of preparations for a party, deliveries through the back door, table settings, etc. The fine color woodcuts depict various ingredients, including wasabi roots, mushrooms, fish, shell fish, tea leaves, shrimp, fiddle ferns, and root vegetables. Apart from the worming, which is limited to ten leaves and is not offensive, a fine set. Rare. .

        The Mysteries of Trade: Or, The Source of Great Wealth, containing receipts and patents in chemistry and manufacturing, with practical observations on the useful arts, original and compiled

      Boston: Printed for the author by Wm. Bellamy, 1825. First Edition. Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good. 152 pages. Sections on fermentation and distillation, beer, wines (including honey wine, or mead), distillation, brandy, gin, rum, whiskey (made from carrots!), cordials, cochineal, vinegar, bread, leather, blacking, butter, cheese, cider, etc. Pages 9-78 are devoted to alcohol in its many forms, frequently with very specific recipes. The recipe for honey wine calls for comb honey (although the author concedes that clean honey is better), egg whites and sand. Whiskey made from carrots instead of barley is not only less expensive, it provides more food for the hogs when distillation is finished. An uncommon book. Maynard, A Bibliography on Grapes, Wines, Other Alcoholic Beverages... 282; Shaw and Shoemaker, 19656. First edition (first printing). A lovely copy in a (mid-19th century?) binding of dark blue morocco with a gilt chain pattern around the edges. Both front and rear flyleaves are present.

      . Radierung, auf Bütten. 17,9:13,2 cm. Literatur: Nagler Monogrammisten II, 2067; vgl. Thieme/Becker XI, S. 375. - Die einzige bekannte Radierung Fellners! Provenienz: Aus dem Nachlaß der Familie Fellner, Frankfurt am Main.. Nach dem Jurastudium hat sich der 1825 unter die Advokaten seiner Heimatstadt Aufgenommene autodidaktisch zum Maler ausgebildet. Im Oktober 1825 ging er nach München, wo ihn vornehmlich P. von Cornelius (1783-1867) beeinflusste. 1831 ließ er sich in Stuttgart nieder, wo er bis an sein Lebensende blieb. Seine hervorragendste Bedeutung hat Fellner als Zeichner, der aus Geschichte, Sage und Dichtung mit unerschöpflicher Phantasie immer neue Begebenheiten darstellte und sich dabei bewusst an den Charakter altdeutscher Kunst anschloß. Ein Teil seines zeichnerischen Nachlasses befindet sich heute im Städelschen Kunstintstitut, Frankfurt a.M.

Il testo è preceduto da una "Vita di Lazzaro Spallanzani tradotta dal latino di Angelo Fabroni". Piano dell'Opera: Tomo I - III: "Viaggi alle Due Sicilie e in alcune parti dell'Appennino" (pg.XXXII, 392; 468; 572); Tomo IV - V: "Dissertazioni varie" ("Prodromo di un'opera da imprimersi sopra le riproduzioni animali", "Dell'azione del cuore ne' vasi sanguigni", "De' fenomeni della circolazione"; "Memorie sulla respirazione", "Saggio di osservazioni microscopiche concernenti il sistema della generazione de' signori Needham e Buffon"; pg.452; 364); Tomo VI: "Opuscoli di fisica animale e vegetabile" )"Osservazioni e sperienze intorno agli animalucci delle infusioni in occasione che si esaminano alcuni articoli della nuova opera del Sig.

"Spallanzani nacque il 12 gennaio 1729 a Scandiano, vicino a Reggio Emilia, da Gian Nicola, giureconsulto, e da Lucia Ziliani, primo di nove fratelli. Anche se agiata, la famiglia numerosa condizionò la sua precoce scelta per lo stato clericale. Fatti i primi studi a Scandiano, a 15 anni entrò nel Collegio dei gesuiti di Reggio per seguire i corsi di retorica e filosofia e di qui passò a Bologna per studiare diritto e seguire così la carriera paterna. Spallanzani decise però di abbandonare il diritto per la filosofia naturale, spinto a ciò dalla cugina Laura Bassi, docente di Fisica generale all?Università. A Bologna Spallanzani studiò anche greco, francese, matematica e astronomia, e apprese l'uso del microscopio. Accettò quindi nel 1757 l'insegnamento di greco nel Seminario e di fisica e matematica all'Università di Reggio. Nel 1762, a trentatré anni, prese gli ordini sacerdotali e nel 1763 si trasferì a Modena per insegnare filosofia all'Università e matematica e greco presso il Collegio di San Carlo. Grazie alla fama acquisita con le ricerche condotte tra il 1761 e il 1768, Spallanzani fu chiamato a Pavia dal plenipotenziario della Lombardia austriaca Carlo di Firmian per ricoprire l?insegnamento di Storia Naturale in una delle fasi più intense della riforma dell?Università. Spallanzani si trasferì a Pavia entro il novembre del 1769 e assunse la cattedra e la direzione del Museo dell?Università, di cui fu anche rettore nell?anno 1777 - 1778. Pur lamentandosi del clima insalubre della città, vi rimase per trent?anni, anche se passò sempre le vacanze estive a Scandiano. Spallanzani continuò a lavorare come al solito fino a qualche giorno prima della morte. Lo scienziato morì nella notte tra l'11 e il 12 febbraio 1799" (dal sito dell'Università di Pavia).
