        PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE. NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER...EXTRA. TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1825

      Washington: National Intelligencer, 1825.. Broadside, 23 x 19 inches. Several hundred lines of text printed in five- column format. Minor creasing, occasional foxing. Very good. An impressive copy of a rare piece. Expertly matted, and protected with a mylar sheet. Adams' first State of the Union address. Before becoming president, Adams was the chief architect of the Monroe Doctrine, and it is with joy that he states that a treaty of "Commerce and Navigation" has been entered into with the Colombian Republic. This treaty was the first between the United States and any Latin American government. Among other interesting topics discussed are compensation rates for War of Independence veterans, the contribution of West Point to the militia, and the establishment of a uniform system of weights and measures. Adams attempts to prod Congress into establishing a national university on land bequeathed by Washington for that purpose. Of particular note is Adams' summation of the progress being made on the construction of a marble monument within the capital, under which Washington's family had granted their consent to lay the first president's remains. This broadside printing was issued by the NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, the newspaper of record in Washington. It would later be printed in the newspaper.

        SAMMLUNG VON SCHWEIZER-PFLANZEN. [COLLECTION OF SWISS PLANTS]

      Zürich, 1825. Hardcover. 191 x 121 mm (7 1/2 x 4 3/4"). [257] leaves. 43 fascicles (of 80) in four portfolios (lacking the text leaf for "chrysanthemum leucanthemum" and with the text leaves for "buxus sempervirens" and "mespilus germanica" in contemporaneous manuscript). Loose as issued in printed stiff board portfolios, flat spines with black leather labels, ribbon ties at fore edge of two volumes (missing on the others), original cardboard slipcases. WITH 257 HAND-COLORED LITHOGRAPHS OF SWISS FLORA by Jonas Labram David (of 258: missing "urtica urens"). Nissen 838. Board portfolios a little soiled, a couple of trivial stains (only), otherwise fine, both the attractively colored plates and the text leaves consistently quite clean and fresh. This charming collection of alpine flowers was compiled by Swiss botanist and statesman Johann Hegetschweiler (1789-1839) and painstakingly lithographed and hand colored by Jonas Labram David (1785-1852) and his daughter Luise, as part of a larger work documenting the plants of Switzerland. The complete work took 23 years to finish. Each plate is accompanied by a leaf of text in German describing the plant and giving its Linnean classification. Each plant is delicately delineated, with additional close-up rendering of the flower head and the seed pod. The hand coloring is careful, accurate, and quite pretty.

Extremities lightly worn, boards rubbed. Bookplate on front pastedown. Light scattered foxing, several leaves loosening; small tears to edges of some plates. About very good. The ATLAS HISTORIQUE for this important French-sponsored circumnavigation. The Freycinet expedition resulted in a total of four large atlases and nine accompanying volumes of text. The purpose of the expedition, which was commanded by Freycinet, was to make chronometric and magnetic observations in various latitudes. The voyage included a one-month visit in the Sandwich Islands, with time spent in Hawaii, Maui, and Oahu, as well as visits to Rio de Janeiro, Cape of Good Hope, Montevideo, Mauritius, New South Wales, and the Caroline Islands. "This later circumnavigation by Captain Freycinet was organized by the French government, under the recently restored Bourbon Dynasty, to show the flag around the world and to make scientific observations on geography, magnetism, and meteorology. It was one of the important voyages of exploration of the early nineteenth century. The URANIE sailed from Toulon to Gibraltar, Tenerife, Rio de Janeiro, Cape of Good Hope, Mascarene Islands, Western Australia, Timor, New Guinea, the Mariana Islands, Caroline Islands, Sandwich Islands, New South Wales, New Zealand, Tierra del Fuego, and the Falkland Islands, where the URANIE was shipwrecked in French Bay....The ship's doctors, Quoy and Gaimard, and the pharmacist Gaudichaud served as the naturalists, collected specimens, and published separate volumes on zoology and botany. Freycinet was clandestinely accompanied by his wife, Rose, after whom he named an island in the Samoan chain....The scientific results of Freycinet's explorations in Timor, the islands off New Guinea, the Marianas, and Hawaii were particularly significant and added greatly to the fund of knowledge that the Europeans had of the geography, cultures, and histories of these areas. The writings on the penal colony of Port Jackson, Australia, are of special historic importance" - Hill. The many handsome plates in the atlases, many of which are colored, add greatly to the ethnographic and natural historical aspect of the work. FERGUSON 941. HILL 649. SABIN 25916. FORBES 602.

        Coursing..Finding Soho

      London: Printed for Thomas M'Lean, Haymarket by Howlett and Brimmer, 10 Frith Street, 1825. Coloured aquatint. Printed with publishers details and dated 1824. In excellent condition. Framed in attractive wood and gold frame with cream wash-line mat. Image size: 4 7/8 x 8 7/8 inches. 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches. Framed size: 13 7/8 x 15 3/8 inches. A pretty aquatint depicting coursing from Henry Alken's celebrated book "The National Sports of Great Britain". This charming print by Henry Alken comes from a book entitled "The National Sports of Great Britain". The book is comprised of fifty coloured aquatints of sporting scenes with an accompanying text. Published in 1824 by Thomas McLean, the images vary in subject from Bull baiting to Otter hunting. This charming print is second in a series of six coursing prints. Henry Thomas Alken was born into what became an artistic dynasty. He studied under the miniature painter J.T. Barber and exhibited his first picture (a miniature portrait) at the Royal Academy when he was sixteen. From about 1816 onwards he "produced an unending stream of paintings, drawings and engravings of every type of field and other sporting activity. He is best remembered for his hunting prints, many of which he engraved himself until the late 1830s.... To many, sporting art is 'Alken', and to describe his work or ability is quite unnecessary."

        Memoirs of Samuel Pepys Esq. F.R.S

      London, Henry Colburn,, 1825. Secretary to the Admiralty in the Reigns of Charles II and James II, Comprising His Diary from 1659 to 1669, deciphered by the Rev. John Smith A.B. of St. John's College, Cambridge, from the original short-hand MS in the Pepysian Library, and a selection from his Private Correspondence. Edited by Richard, Lord Braybrooke. 2 volumes, large quarto (298 × 234 mm). Rebound to style in panelled calf, spines with double gilt rules either side of raised bands, red and black morocco labels, old gilt edges. Engraved portrait frontispiece, 12 plates, portraits, facsimiles, etc. A little light foxing and offsetting as usual, a very good set. First edition of this key historical record of Restoration London, which remained unprinted for more than 150 years after its original composition. The text was painstakingly deciphered from Pepys's shorthand by a penniless student who did not realise that the manual for the system, Thomas Shelton's Tutor to Tachygraphy (1642), was easily accessible in his own college library. Like all 19th-century editions, this first printing censors the frankest of Pepys's confessions.

        A New General Atlas, comprising a complete set of maps, representing the grand divisions of the globe... compiled from the best authorities, and corrected by the most recent discoveries

      Philadelphia: Anthony Finley, 1825. Imperial quarto. (13 3/8 x 10 5/16 inches). Engraved throughout: title, index leaf, 58 hand-coloured, two hand-coloured engraved comparative charts of mountains and rivers. Expertly bound to style in red straight-grained half morocco, incorporating original marbled paper-covered boards, original green-toned engraved title label on upper cover, the flat spine gilt in five compartments, divided by horizontal fillets, lettered in gilt in the second compartment. A fine copy of the second edition of this important atlas, from one of the greatest American map publishers of the period. A contemporary review of the first edition applies equally to the present second: "The number of elegant maps and atlases which have come from the press within a short time in the United States, is a most flattering proof of increased attention of the community to the important study of geography. The present work contains sixty maps, about half of which are devoted to the American continent, and the remainder to other parts of the world, chiefly to Europe. The engraving is done almost uniformly with remarkable distinctness and the face of the maps is frequently beautiful, not overloaded with a confusion of useless names" (North American Review, July 1824, pp.261-262). Little is known of Anthony Finley, other than his published work 'but he was probably born around 1790. Judging from contributors to his atlases, he apparently moved in the same Philadelphia circles of engravers and compilers as other contemporary publishers' (Ristow, p.268). This edition of Finley's celebrated atlas is quite rare. Not on OCLC. Cf. Phillips Atlases 4314 (another ed); cf. Ristow, p.268; cf. Rumsey, p.109 (another ed).

Bit of foxing at edges (but much less than the norm), early restorations to spines and spine ends, and rear free endsheet replaced in volume one early on, but a really nice, untrimmed set, with the bookplates of Arthur Swann. Half morocco slipcase and inserts. A pedigreed copy of the first edition of Cooper's fifth novel. The half-titles bear the series title, "Legends of the Thirteen Republics," of which this was to be the first installment. However, its reception was tepid, and he turned in another direction, with THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS published the following year. In this set, the signature mark '11' is intact in volume two. Arthur Swann's descriptive slip is laid in, and the free endsheets bear some of his notes, including observations on the superiority of this copy over a copy Rosenbach showed him in 1928. BAL 3832.
