        The Private Journal of Captain G. F. Lyon, of HMS Hecla,

      London: John Murray,, 1825. during the Recent Voyage of Discovery under Captain Parry. Octavo (208 x 131 mm). Turn-of-the-century blue half morocco, marbled boards, raised bands to spine, titles and decorations to compartments gilt, single rules to boards gilt, top edge gilt, others trimmed, marbled endpapers, by Zaehnsdorf. Frontispiece and 6 plates engraved by Edward Finden, one engraved folding map. Spine very lightly sunned, minor wear to extremities, corners gently bumped, mild offsetting from turn-ins, light foxing to prelims, endmatter, plates and adjacent pages, folding map slightly tanned with short closed tear to stub and some minor nicks to margins. An excellent copy. This copy is the second edition, which was published a year after the first edition. When William E. Parry (1790-1855), commanding the H.M.S. Fury, set out on his second North West Passage expedition in 1821, Lyon (1795-1826) accompanied him and served as captain of the H.M.S. Hecla. Lyon's account of the 1821-3 expedition touches briefly upon the harsh conditions of such a voyage, but otherwise is largely "devoted to the narration of the peculiarities of the Aborgines of the Arctic region. Captain Lyon's curiosity led him to observe with great attention the habits of life and traits of character of the different tribes of Esquimaux, who were attracted by his humane management to his winter quarters" (Field). This copy from the library of the Money-Coutts family with their bookplate to front pastedown, dated 1889 signed J.D.B., i.e. John Dickson Batten (1860–1932).

        Elements of Pathology and Therapeutics; being the outlines of a work, intended to ascertain the nature, causes, and most efficacious modes of prevention and cure, of the greater number of diseases incidental to the human frame; illustrated by numerous cases and dissections. Vol. I. General Pathology [all published].

      FIRST EDITION. Parry's classic account of exophthalmic goitre appears first in this book as a brief report; it was fully given in the Collections from the unpublished writings, 1825. This book also contains the first description of reactive hyperaemia. It was intended as a large work, comprising Parry's carefully kept records from many years? observations in practice, but no more of this edition was published, and even in the second, posthumous, edition, the second volume appeared only as a fragment. Parry was a respected physician with extensive and distinguished social connections, and his independent researches are of considerable importance. Few physicians of his time enjoyed or deserved a higher reputation.Parry was a friend of Edward Jenner, and the dedicatee of Jenner?s Inquiry (1798).8vo, pp. vii, (i), 463. Foxing on the endpapers, some very light foxing and small marks in the text but a very good and fresh copy. Contemporary speckled calf (upper edge rubbed, imperceptible repairs to spine), spine ruled in gilt, red morocco label. Faint signature dated 1830 at top of title.

        ATLAS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, MADE UNDER THE AUTHORITY OF THE LEGISLATURE: PREFACED WITH A GEOGRAPHICAL STATISTICAL AND HISTORICAL MAP OF THE STATE

      [Baltimore: Fielding Lucas, and Philadelphia: H.S. Tanner, 1825].. Thirty engraved mapsheets, comprised of one handcolored engraved map of the whole State on a double-page sheet surrounded by letterpress with the drop-head title to the atlas above and surrounding explanatory and statistical text on the three remaining sides, twenty-eight uncolored engraved maps on twenty-nine sheets (map of Charleston on two sheets, nineteen double-page, nine folding). Extra- illustrated with a period manuscript index. Expertly bound to style in half calf over contemporary marbled boards. A very good copy. A landmark work in American cartography, this is the very rare first edition of the first American state atlas, accompanied here by the companion statistical volume by Mills. The first work is one of the finest American state atlases ever produce: Mills benefited from the most up-to-date scientific surveying techniques available to draw highly accurate and descriptive maps of each district of South Carolina. The individual District maps are each a marvel of cartography, showing every region in great detail. The maps are drawn on a scale of 1:125,000 or two miles to the inch, with cities, towns, villages, swamps, woods, rivers, mountains, streams, lakes, and roads are all identified, and distances between towns and between towns and the coast are often given. The location of waterfalls (and their heights) are noted on rivers, and other important transportation information is given as well. Public houses, mills, colleges, blacksmith shops, cotton factories, courthouses, and other notable locations are also identified, as are the names of doctors and property owners. The atlas, therefore, was valuable not only for its cartographic qualities, but as an engine of economic development. "Mills's ATLAS OF THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA is a cartographic milestone because of its use of astronomical and scientific surveys for its district maps, its position as the first atlas of an individual state, and the impetus it gave to local and regional cartography in the early decades of the nineteenth century. It is also a tribute to the dedicated and self-sacrificing personal effort of Mills in carrying through to completion its compilation and publication. Monuments to Mills's architectural genius still survive in several American cities, but his South Carolina atlas is the sole record of his contribution to the history of cartography in the United States" (Ristow p.219). Ristow also points out that Mills' atlas was intimately associated with the trend in internal improvements that flourished in the United States in the first decades of the nineteenth century, and the maps in this atlas take great care to show the roads and rivers that were so important in facilitating transportation, communication, and commerce. In fact the creation of these maps was an outgrowth of this trend, as states commissioned engineers and surveyors to create detailed and current maps. South Carolina was late in the game, not commissioning a state map until 1815, when an authorization of $5,000 per year was made to pay for surveys to be conducted under the supervision of George Blackburn, a mathematics professor. Ultimately, twenty surveyors were charged with creating maps of the twenty-eight judicial districts of the state. Between 1817 and 1821 manuscript maps were created for each district, based on astronomical, geodetic, and topographic surveys and field work, and using the latest scientific techniques. In 182,2 John Wilson used the district maps to produce his map of the entire state of South Carolina, which was engraved by H.S. Tanner in Philadelphia. In 1825 each map was updated (or "improved") by Robert Mills in preparation for the publication of this atlas. The names of the surveyors are noted on each district map, except for the maps of the Darlington and Marlborough districts. Robert Mills was born in Charleston in 1781 and studied under James Hoban, the Irish-born architect who designed the White House. In Washington, Mills made the acquaintance of Thomas Jefferson and studied in Jefferson's extensive architecture library before going to work as an assistant to Benjamin Latrobe in 1803. By 1809 he was established as an architect in Philadelphia, doing work in Baltimore and Richmond as well, and among his designs is the Washington monument in Baltimore. Late in his career Mills also designed the Washington Monument in Washington, D.C. as well as the Treasury Building. In 1820, back in residence in South Carolina, he was appointed to that state's department of Public Works. Aware of the surveying and cartographic work that had been undertaken in the state, he became determined to make the individual manuscript district maps more widely available by having them printed as an atlas. Mills undertook redrawing the district maps to make them uniform with each other. As part of this undertaking he traveled throughout the state, adding his personal observations and improvements to the maps. Mills engaged Henry Tanner of Philadelphia to print the maps for the atlas. Though dated 1825, the atlas was not actually published until 1826, priced $15 a copy, when, simultaneously, Mills also published the octavo STATISTICS OF SOUTH CAROLINA with a single folding map of the whole state which is printed from the same plate as the first map in the atlas (with a necessary change to the imprint).
