        Geographical memoirs on New South Wales . By Various hands; containing an account of the Surveyor General's late expedition. Edited by Barron Field esq

      London: John Murray, 1825. Octavo, with a frontispiece, four folding maps and two botanical plates at rear; title-page and frontispiece a little browned, some offsetting from the maps yet a fine and very attractive copy in a striking contemporary green polished calf binding, spine with unusual ornate gilt geometric decoration and red morocco labels. Cunningham on Liverpool Plains the Blue Mountains. An uncommonly good copy in a handsome contemporary binding: one of the more important and interesting works relating to the Macquarie era. This work includes any number of essays on Australia collected during Field's residence in New South Wales from 1817 to 1824, notably the only published account of Oxley's 1823 expedition to survey the Queensland coast, along with a second narrative of the expedition by one of the participants, John Uniacke. Apart from Oxley's account of Moreton Bay, the work has several early expedition journals, notably the only published account of Allan Cunningham's exploration to the Liverpool Plains, Currie's expedition to the southward of Lake George and Field's own journal of his trip across the Blue Mountains. The work is very interesting in terms of Aboriginal history for the inclusion of Oxley's report of the expedition to Moreton Bay which has important notes on the local tribes (including two chapters recounting fights Oxley had witnessed). There is also Barron Field's own meandering essay 'On the Aborigines of New Holland and Van Diemen's Land'. There are also several significant essays on natural history, the best being Cunningham's 'On the Botany of the Blue Mountains', while the botanical plates at the end illustrate four plants including Fieldia Australis (named for Barron Field). The fine frontispiece image is after a drawing by John Lewin, Australia's first professional artist. Interestingly, this work makes a perhaps surprising appearance in Abbey's Travel in Aquatint and Lithography, which is testament to the quality of Lewin's view.

        Autograph letter signed

      [Paris]: 28 October, 1825. Five-page autograph letter, folded to letter-size 224 x 171 mm., the sixth page blank; neatly written with some original scratching-out and corrections; secured together at the left margin; in fine condition. Cashmere fantasies: Bory de Saint-Vincent still scheming. A long letter from Bory de Saint-Vincent to an unknown correspondent ("Mon cher ami") mentioning in passing his experiences on the Baudin voyage, and his own exploration of the islands of the Indian Ocean (published as Voyage dans les quatres principales iles des mers d'Afrique, Paris, 1804), as qualifications for his involvement in a proposed project for the collection and marketing of exotic wools, and also for writing material for a contemporary French journal concentrating on the "nouveau monde". From the context it seems likely that his correspondent is the editor of that journal. There is some mention of the Americas, of Colombia especially. Bory mentions the breeding of merinos in France, talks about llamas, camels, Tibet, cashmere, among many other references to the subject, apparently soliciting a commission to write an article on the subject as well as to be the leading light in a new venture. 'J'ose croire que je suis la personne la plus en état de conduire a bien une telle entreprise, j'ai déjà fait mes preuves comme voyageur avec Baudin, et en faisant connaitre les Iles d'Afrique' ('I dare say I am the single person most suited to run such an enterprise, having proved myself as a voyager with Baudin and by making known the Islands of Africa').To the extent that the scheme seems hare-brained, it should probably be read in the context of Bory de Saint-Vincent's difficult later life in Paris and its attendant complications. As Charles H. Smith has pointed out (online resource) 'Bory de Saint-Vincent's almost too colourful life story has sometimes overshadowed his reputation as one of the most thoughtful and productive naturalists of the early nineteenth century. A free-spending extrovert who also dabbled in literary ventures, his career was complicated by involvement in a near-mutiny at sea, various political intrigues, and financial debts - to the extent that he spent years at a time avoiding the authorities, or actually being incarcerated. Throughout it all, however, he managed to keep up a career as a natural history collector. Bory was the first important island biogeographer…'. From the collection of Henri Ledoux (eccentric Parisian collector; one of his fetishes was to acquire important title-pages and jettison the rest of the books) with his distinctive small red stamp (H.L. in a heart) at beginning and end and a note identifying the authorship of the letter in his hand in red ink.

        De Aegocerote Argalide Pallasii, ovis domesticae matre

      [Bonn]: [Weber], 1825. Quarto, title-page and pp. 281-90, two large folding plates; some foxing and browning, but very good in modern boards. The Snow Sheep of Kamchatka (not goats…). Uncommon scientific publication on the Kamchatka Snow Sheep, collected on board the Krusenstern circumnavigation. The paper was written and the engraved plates prepared by Tilesius (1769-1857), a German naturalist who was appointed to Moscow University in 1803 before joining the Krusenstern expedition, the first Russian circumnavigation. After his return he published on the voyage, and went on to a long and illustrious career. The expedition had visited Kamchatka in 1805, where Tilesius was able to collect specimens of the local "snow sheep" or "Siberian bighorn sheep" (Ovis nivicola). His original drawings are now in Leipzig University, but Tilesius also prepared these two large-format engravings for publication. The article was prepared for the scientific journal Nova acta Academiae Caesareae Leopoldino-Carolinae Germanicae Naturae Curiosorum.

This work also contains additional work on the strength of materials, a subject in which Tredgold was greatly interested; while he lacked the mathematical ability to produce accurate work of the standard of Eaton Hodginkson, he was the first writer to introduce a formula for calculating safe stresses for columns, and his work remained widely influential for some time. Later works on the subject of railways include Remarks on steam navigation and its protection, regulation and encouragement (London, 1825) and The steam engine (London, 1827). The present work appeared in a further edition in 1835.Ottley 293; Skempton 1657.

        THE SUBSTANCE OF THE SPEECH OF GENERAL SIR JOHN DOYLE, BART. G.C.B. AND K.C. AT THE INDIA HOUSE, UPON THE HYDERABAD PAPERS, ON FRIDAY, MARCH 4, 1825.

      London, Matthew Iley, 1825.FIRST EDITION 1825. 8vo, approximately 220 x 130 mm, 8¾ x 5¼ inches, 77 pages, finely bound in full straight grain black morocco, triple gilt ruled outer border enclosing elaborate gilt and blind border to covers, triple ruled inner border with corner ornaments, faux gilt raised bands, richly gilt in compartments, gilt title, all edges gilt, red endpapers. Binding slightly rubbed at head and tail of spine and at corners, endpapers darkened at edges, very occasional small pale mark to margins of pages. A very good copy of a very scarce pamphlet. General Sir John Doyle (1756 - 1834), was one of the four sons of Charles Doyle of Bramblestown, Ireland. A graduate of Trinity College, Dublin, he served with the British army in the United States. When the Civil War ended there in 1784, he returned to Ireland where he was elected Member of Parliament for Mullingar and proved himself an eloquent a speaker in the pre - Union, Irish House of Commons. Sir John raised the famous 87th Regiment in 1794 to serve in the Netherlands. He served as a brigadier general with Abercrombie in Egypt in 1800, distinguished himself, and was made a baronet in 1805, and a full general in 1819. At one time he was Private Secretary to the Prince of Wales. When he retired he was appointed Governor of Guernsey where his able administration, assisted by a nephew, also John Doyle, is commemorated by an impressive column. In this speech Doyle addresses a court convened in the London headquarters of the East India Company to defend and eulogise his life - long friend Lord Hastings (1754 - 1826), recently retired from his highly successful and highly praised 9 year post as Governor General of India. Lord Hastings' last years of office were embittered by discussions on a matter notorious at the time, namely, the affairs of the banking - house of W. Palmer and Company. The whole affair was mixed up with insinuations against him especially charging him with having been motivated by favoritism towards one of the partners in the firm. From imputations made by the Resident at the court of the Nizam Charles Metcalfe which were inconsistent with his whole character and which were repeated by directors of the Company he was subsequently exonerated. The whole affair as well as Lord Hastings' huge achievements in India for the Company and for the Government are analysed in depth by Doyle.

        Rapport fait à l'Académie Royale des Sciences, Sur la partie Zoologique du Voyage autour du Monde

      Paris: Pillet aîné, 1825. Slim octavo, 16 pp., very good in recent quarter polished calf with gilt lettering. Rare report by Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire on the zoological volume of the Freycinet voyage account, including some personal observations on the mammals of Australia. The Zoologique was authored by Jean Rene Constant Quoy and Joseph Paul Gaimard, physicians and naturalists accompanying the expedition, and was published in 16 livraisons between 1824 and 1826. In this report, eminent naturalist and savant Saint-Hilaire critiques the publication, summarising the chapters and adding his own notes and observations. Originally prepared for inclusion in the Revue encyclopédique (1825, volume 26), it is here offered by the Parisian publishers Pillet aîné to encourage sale of the Zoologique and other upcoming volumes of the Freycinet voyage publication. Effectively it forms a prospectus for the Zoologique, distributed gratis by Pillet aîné to likely buyers. In his report Saint-Hilaire comments on the remarkable mammals of New Holland, including the possum, potoroo and kangaroo, remarking on the remarkable quality and colour of its pelt : '…le kanguroo laineux; cette derniére espèce est surtout très-remarquable par la qualité de son poil, rappelant tout-à-fait celui de la vigogne par la vivacité de sa teinte (le roux ferrugineux), et par sa finesse et son abondance'. Interestingly, Saint-Hilaire also makes a passing reference to Australia's first natural history publisher John Lewin 'Cependant peut-être faundra-t-il revenir aux premières vues de M. Lewin dessinateur et graveur sur les lieux mêmes, à Sydney'. Saint-Hilaire was a towering figure of French science, appointed professor of quadrupeds, cetaceans, birds, reptiles and fish at the Musée d'histoire naturelle in 1793 at the young age of twenty-one. He travelled with Napoleon's campaign to Egypt, but it was his long study of the museum's mammalian collection that made him famous, and led to comparisons with Cuvier (although the two men fell out in 1829). During his tenure he published a series of articles and monographs on the platypus.

Rare pamphlet recording a meeting of Australian Agricultural Company directors at the London Tavern on 21 July 1825. The Australian Agricultural Company was founded by an act of British Parliament in 1824: in return for raising one million pounds in capital, the company was awarded a land grant by the New South Wales government of one million acres. This pamphlet prints the report presented by Company governor John Smith on 21 July 1825, to which is appended Smith's previous report of January that year, and the company plan drafted in November 1824. The scale and optimism of the venture is astonishing - 'there is perhaps, none that holds out the prospect of greater national benefit, or more certain individual emolument, than the plan for extending cultivation, and producing wool of the finest quality, in New South Wales.' This report details the great efforts undertaken in procuring breeding stock, recently dispatched to Australia: 'We have caused the most esteemed of the Merino Flocks in Europe, to be inspected by an intelligent Agent in whom we could rely, assisted by Mr. Dawson; and we have already selected such a number of high bred Rams and Ewes, as will secure to the Company a foundation for their Flocks. For the transport of this…two ships of considerable burthen, the York and Brothers, were chartered, and despatchd from the Isle of Wight in the month of June.' The report discloses new lands discovered in New South Wales by the colonial surveyor John Oxley and his assistants, specifically the Liverpool Plains and good pastures on the Hastings and Hunter's Rivers. We learn that a possible road from the Hunter's River has been surveyed by Oxley's assistant Henry Dangar, and that the warmer climate of the Hastings will allow cultivation of cotton, coffee and sugar. Despite its name, the Company was not limited to agricultural development. We learn that Newcastle coal deposits have been barely scratched by the government using convict labour. However, the coal is 'now ascertained to be of the finest sort; nothing is required but the application of machinery to raise it in abundance, and of excellent quality.' Accordingly, the Company plans to mine and export coal to India, Isle de France and Pacific coast of South America. Of historical interest is the full listing of the directors of the company, a roll call of English venture capitalists alongside men intimately associated with the colony (such as Henry Grey Bennet, John MacArthur and Robert Campbell). The list includes nine members of parliament, the governor of the Bank of England and British East India Company director John Loch. This report also details a glowing letter of support from Sir Thomas Brisbane, who insists the establishment of the Company 'must therefore hail it as the happiest event which could have befallen the Colony.' We can locate only three copies of this pamphlet in Australian public collections, held by the Mitchell, National and Newcastle Regional libraries.

        The Works of Lord Byron

      London: John Murray, 1825 Six volumes. Early set of Byron's works. Finely bound in contemporary full teal calf, with three raised bands to the spines, contrasting black and brown spine labels, spine lettered and decoratively tooled in gilt, boards ruled and decorated in gilt, board edges tooled in gilt, brown sprinkled page edges, brown marble endpapers. About near fine, with some light wear to the extremities, a few minor chips to the spine ends, light rubbing to the hinges, a hint of toning to the spines, some light wear and minor scratching to the otherwise bright boards, Volume I with a short spilt to the front paper hinge, otherwise sturdy and intact bindings, former owner's bookplates to the front pastedowns, a few faint traces of scattered spotting to the otherwise very bright and fresh pages. A lovely set, free of any repairs or restoration. The Works of Lord Byron is an early collection of Lord Byron's poetry, published the year after his death in 1824. Like many sets of Byron's works, this set was published by John Murray II, the son of the founder of the John Murray publishing house. Poet and publisher were first acquainted when Murray received Byron's manuscript for the first two cantos of Childe Harold's Pilgrimage in 1811, which he subsequently published in 1812. Murray, known for a boldness that helped bring his father's publishing house to the forefront, drew major attention to Byron and Childe Harold, thereby securing a lifelong friendship with the poet. Indeed, Bryon later gave his publisher the nickname the "Anak of publishing." Murray published his first collection of Byron's works in 1815 in four volumes under the title The Works of the Right Honorable Lord Byron, a set which was expanded to eight volumes in the years following publication. In 1819, Murray published a new collection of Byron's works in three volumes under the title The Works of Lord Byron, which was later published in four volumes in 1823 and extended into 6 volumes by 1825. This set is an early copy the six volume edition with all volumes published in 1825, the table of contents from the first volume containing only 4 volumes, which indicates that the sheets may have been printed for the 1823 four volume set, making it an early state of the 1825 set.. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        Geographical memoirs on New South Wales . By Various hands; containing an account of the Surveyor General's late expedition. Edited by Barron Field esq

      John Murray, London 1825 - Octavo, with a frontispiece, four folding maps and two botanical plates at rear; title-page and frontispiece a little browned, some offsetting from the maps yet a fine and very attractive copy in a striking contemporary green polished calf binding, spine with unusual ornate gilt geometric decoration and red morocco labels. Cunningham on Liverpool Plains the Blue Mountains. An uncommonly good copy in a handsome contemporary binding: one of the more important and interesting works relating to the Macquarie era. This work includes any number of essays on Australia collected during Field's residence in New South Wales from 1817 to 1824, notably the only published account of Oxley's 1823 expedition to survey the Queensland coast, along with a second narrative of the expedition by one of the participants, John Uniacke. Apart from Oxley's account of Moreton Bay, the work has several early expedition journals, notably the only published account of Allan Cunningham's exploration to the Liverpool Plains, Currie's expedition to the southward of Lake George and Field's own journal of his trip across the Blue Mountains. The work is very interesting in terms of Aboriginal history for the inclusion of Oxley's report of the expedition to Moreton Bay which has important notes on the local tribes (including two chapters recounting fights Oxley had witnessed). There is also Barron Field's own meandering essay 'On the Aborigines of New Holland and Van Diemen's Land'. There are also several significant essays on natural history, the best being Cunningham's 'On the Botany of the Blue Mountains', while the botanical plates at the end illustrate four plants including Fieldia Australis (named for Barron Field). The fine frontispiece image is after a drawing by John Lewin, Australia's first professional artist. Interestingly, this work makes a perhaps surprising appearance in Abbey's Travel in Aquatint and Lithography, which is testament to the quality of Lewin's view. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      New York: Corporation of New York, 1825. First Edition. Hardcover. Light to moderate foxing, but generally a Near Fine and special copy of this rare and attractive book. Quarto (7-3/4" x 9-3/4"), bound in full gilt-decorated calf leather with the city seal blindstamped on both covers, neatly rebacked with the original spine laid down; v, [3], 408, [2] pages. Illustrated with the 47 listed lithographs, many folding, including 2 large folding hand-colored maps, as well as 8 lithographed facsimiles of testimonial letters by John Adams, John Quincy Adams, Thomas Jefferson, and the Marquis de Lafayette, and a few lithographs not listed. All lithographs were executed by Anthony Imbert, whom Harry Peters called the pioneer lithographer of New York City, after drawings by Asher B. Durand and others, including at least 3 by George Catlin. One of the first recorded American books illustrated with lithographs. Howes C-562; American Imprints 20118; Peters, America on Stone, pp. 228-232. An important volume, commemorating the greatest feat of American engineering to that date, the opening of the Erie Canal connecting the Great Lakes to the Atlantic Ocean. This copy with the name in gilt on the front cover of Samuel L. Mitchell. There is a portrait of Mitchell in the book engraved by Asher Durand. The front endpaper contains an inscription by Mitchell dated 1827 to his brother, Singleton, mentioning that he had received two copies of the book and was giving him this one. On the next blank page is an inscription dated 1849 by Singleton to his grandson. At the end of the book are bound a number of blank pages but for two which contain manuscript descriptions of Signals for the Grand Canal Celebration Fleet of Steam Gallies, with several small watercolors of flags. Samuel L. Mitchell was a founding editor of The Medical Repository, the first medical journal in the United States, as well as a member of both the United States Congress and Senate. Mitchell strongly endorsed the building of the Erie Canal, sponsored by his friend and political ally DeWitt Clinton, and gave a speech at its dedication. Mitchell suggested renaming the United States of America Fredonia, combining the English "freedom" with a Latinate ending. His suggestion was not taken seriously, though some towns took on the name. He was known for his widespread knowledge, Thomas Jefferson considering him the "Congressional Dictionary.

        WANDERINGS IN SOUTH AMERICA, THE NORTH-WEST OF THE UNITED STATES, and the Antilles, in the Years 1812, 1816, 1820, and 1824. With original instructions for the Perfect Preservation of Birds, &c. for Cabinets of Natural History.

      J. Mawman,, London: 1825 - 326 pp. First edition; later 3/4 calf; marble boards; raised cords; dark brown, morocco label, gilt stamped; edges stained and trimmed; blue-black headbands; frontispiece lithograph ("A Nondescript"). Binding tight; boards moderate edge wear; f.p. foxing otherwise internally pristine; see additional images provided. Waterton made two trips to the northern coast of South America and through his descriptive writing caused a stir in Victorian England with the publication of a drawing of a half man, half animal creature he was supposed to have seen (the fp.). Quoting Borba 937: "Charles Waterton (1781-1865) was born in Yorkshire, educated at a Catholic college, travelled in Spain and in 1804 sailed to British Guiana with his father, who owned property there. Waterton returned to England in 1806 after his father's death. He made four other voyages to the Guianas, and travelled across them and the northern part of South America for a period of ten years. On his first voyage, in 1812, he sailed the Demerara, Essequibo, and Rio Branco rivers. One of the aims of this journey was to obtain 'curare' which he calls 'Wourali.' He was successful and returned to England with a sample with which he made experiments to find out its properties. In 1816, on his second voyage, he went to Pernambuco from where he travelled to Cayenne, and there ventured into the jungle to collect and study species, especially birds. His third and fourth voyages, in 1820 and 1824, again took him to the Guianas. The value of Waterton's work lies in the fact that he was the first to observe and describe 'd'apr?s nature' the birds and animals of the tropics, largely known only from museum specimens. Waterton was not truly a scientist; he lacked formal scientific education since his field was the humanities. He was well aware of the taste of the general public for adventures and never missed an opportunity to describe most extraordinary ones, of how he captured a boa constrictor, a crocadile, etc. Waterton was eccentric. He travelled barefoot across jungles and in England slept on the floor using a board as a pillow. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Rapport fait à l'Académie Royale des Sciences, Sur la partie Zoologique du Voyage autour du Monde?

      Pillet aîné, Paris 1825 - Slim octavo, 16 pp., very good in recent quarter polished calf with gilt lettering. Rare report by Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire on the zoological volume of the Freycinet voyage account, including some personal observations on the mammals of Australia. The Zoologique was authored by Jean Rene Constant Quoy and Joseph Paul Gaimard, physicians and naturalists accompanying the expedition, and was published in 16 livraisons between 1824 and 1826. In this report, eminent naturalist and savant Saint-Hilaire critiques the publication, summarising the chapters and adding his own notes and observations. Originally prepared for inclusion in the Revue encyclopédique (1825, volume 26), it is here offered by the Parisian publishers Pillet aîné to encourage sale of the Zoologique and other upcoming volumes of the Freycinet voyage publication. Effectively it forms a prospectus for the Zoologique, distributed gratis by Pillet aîné to likely buyers. In his report Saint-Hilaire comments on the remarkable mammals of New Holland, including the possum, potoroo and kangaroo, remarking on the remarkable quality and colour of its pelt : '?le kanguroo laineux; cette derniére espèce est surtout très-remarquable par la qualité de son poil, rappelant tout-à-fait celui de la vigogne par la vivacité de sa teinte (le roux ferrugineux), et par sa finesse et son abondance'. Interestingly, Saint-Hilaire also makes a passing reference to Australia's first natural history publisher John Lewin 'Cependant peut-être faundra-t-il revenir aux premières vues de M. Lewin dessinateur et graveur sur les lieux mêmes, à Sydney'. Saint-Hilaire was a towering figure of French science, appointed professor of quadrupeds, cetaceans, birds, reptiles and fish at the Musée d'histoire naturelle in 1793 at the young age of twenty-one. He travelled with Napoleon's campaign to Egypt, but it was his long study of the museum's mammalian collection that made him famous, and led to comparisons with Cuvier (although the two men fell out in 1829). During his tenure he published a series of articles and monographs on the platypus. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

L'opera, di ottima fattura e ricercata per il soggetto, è un disegno rappresentante la basilica di Superga presso Torino, colta in lontananza dal Monte dei Cappuccini oltre il Po; in secondo piano, al centro, lo spazio è occupato dalle ville e dagli altri edifici che punteggiavano uno dei luoghi più ameni del territorio torinese. Di notevole freschezza e abilità è inoltre il primo piano con alberi mossi dal vento. La stesura trasparente, delicata e assai sicura del foglio è tipica di un artista dell'acquerello, lontana dai numerosi dilettanti che nell'Ottocento praticavano questa forma d'arte. Il titolo al retro, lungo, dettagliato e corredato di data induce a credere che la veduta sia stata colta dal vero. L'autore "D. Roberts" è forse identificabile con il noto pittore d'architettura e acquerellista scozzese, nato ad Edimburgo nel 1796 e morto a Londra nel 1864.Associato alla Royal Academy dal 1839 e membro effettivo dell'istituzione dal 1841, Davids compì numerosi viaggi in Europa, Siria ed Egitto, producendo schizzi ed acquerelli che furono sovente tradotti in stampe litografiche. Esemplare in buono stato conservativo; piccola mancanza restaurata in corrispondenza del cielo in alto a sinistra. 0
