        Memoirs of... 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 Pepsyian Library, and a Selection from His Private Correspondence. Edited by Richard, Lord Braybrooke.

      London: Henry Colbourn, 1825. . First edition. Two volumes. 4to. xlii, 498, (2), xlix, (1); (iv), 311, (1) pp. Later 19th century brown half morocco over marbled boards with all edges and endpapers matching, spine with raised bands, gilt lettered to three panels, "presentation copy" printed in red to both half titles, a pencilled inscription presenting the set to a Lady Williams Wynn on behalf of Lord Braybrooke and his brother the Rev. George Neville, master of Magdalene College, Cambridge on the second free endpaper. 12 full page plates, 1 double page and two illustrations at the beginning and end of the Life of Pepys, volume I extra illustrated with two full page portraits of Braybrooke and Neville. Spines very slightly faded, light wear to extremities, a little foxing towards the rear of volume II, a very good set nonetheless. The first printed edition of Pepys' memoirs, published just over 150 years after their original composition. The diary had been in the possession of Magdalene College for the best part of a century before John Smith decoded Pepys' shorthand. Braybrooke and his brother co-edited Smith's manuscript and whilst acknowledgement of his effort is made in this edition, his contribution was played down in subsequent editions.

        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.

        VOYAGE AUTOUR DU MONDE FAIT PAR ORDRE DU ROI, SUR LES CORVETTES DE S.M. L'URANIE ET LA PHYSICIENNE, PENDANT LES ANNEES 1817, 1818, 1819 ET 1820. ATLAS HISTORIQUE

      Paris. 1825.. 10pp. plus engraved titlepage and 112 plates and maps (two folding, forty colored). Large folio. Contemporary three-quarter calf over moire silk boards, spine gilt. 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.

They explored the Cape Verde Islands, South Shetland, South Orkney and the South Georgia Islands. The expedition reached 74°15' South -- farther south than any other ship to that point. Remarkably, Weddell reported the seas to be free of ice. The sea directly north of the present British Antarctic Territory identified on one of the present maps as "The Sea of George the Fourth" is now named in Weddell's honour.

        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).

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.

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.

        The Gold Temple of the principal Idol Guadma, taken from its front being the Eastern face of the Great Dagon Pagoda at Rangoon [Pl. 7]

      London: Kingsbury & Co. and Thomas Clay, [1825]. Hand-coloured aquatint plates engraved by G. Hunt after Moore. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling. 17 3/4 x 12 3/4 inches. 21 1/2 x 14 1/2 inches. A beautiful plate from Moore's book 'Eighteen Views taken at & Near Rangoon', an important visual record of the Burmese countryside and scenery, and of the war between the Burmese and British in 1824 to 1826. Following Burmese incursions into British held territory in 1821-1823 (including the successful invasion of Assam), the Governor-General , Lord Amherst, declared war on Burma on February 24, 1824. The British were successful in expelling the Burmese from Assam, but Bandula, the ablest of the Burmese generals, repelled a British detachment at Ramu on the Chittagong frontier. In reply, the British sent an expedition of 11,000 men under Major-General Archibald Campbell and ships under Captain Frederick Marryat to attack Rangoon by sea. The expedition resulted in the capture of Rangoon on May 11, 1824, with the Burmese forces fleeing into jungles of Pegu. Meanwhile, Bandula had been recalled and arrived before Rangoon on December 1 with 60,000 men. He was, however, defeated on December 15 and then retreated to Donabew, where, after a brave defence, he was killed in April 1825. On April 25, Campbell captured Prome, the capital of Lower Burma. The fighting continued sporadically throughout the rest of 1825 and into 1826, until a peace treaty was signed on February 24. Joseph Moore, a Lieutenant in the 89th Regiment, includes images that begin with the departure of Campbell's invasion force and conclude in July 1824. They are a finely balanced mixture of eye-witness battle scenes with a number of very fine views of countryside and buildings in and around Rangoon. Frederick Marryat's involvement in the conflict began in March 1823 when he "commissioned the Larne for service in the East Indies, where he arrived in time to take an active part in the first Burmese war. From May to September 1824 he was senior naval officer at Rangoon, and was officially thanked for his able, gallant, and zealous co-operation with the troops. The very sickly state of the ship obliged him to go to Penang, but by the end of December he was back at Rangoon, and in February 1825 he had the naval command of an expedition up the Bassein river, which occupied Bassein and seized the Burmese magazines. [It was during this period that he made the sketches worked up into the plates in the second part of the present work]." (DNB) Abbey Travel II, 404; Tooley 334.

      820 and 1825 - London - Darton, Harvey and Darton, 1819 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A uniformly bound collection of these scarce works by Maria Hack with engravings to frontispieces of each volume. First editions. In four volumes.

Hack wrote these stories withthe intention of illustrating some of the stories from Grecian and English history, intended for young people. Maria Hack (1777 - 1844) was an English writer of educational books for children. According to a younger brother, the poet Bernard Barton, Maria was an oracle to him in his youth. Her interest in education began with her own family and soon extended into writing. The earliest of many books is thought to have been First Lessons in English Grammar (1812). Winter Evenings (1818) teaches geography through travellers' tales told to two children. The same approach was taken in Grecian Stories (1819) and English Stories (182025). Others of her textbooks covered geology and optics. Some of were still being reprinted in the 1870s. With previous owner's bookplates to front pastedowns of first three volumes.

        [A pair of angling prints each captioned with quotes from Horace and Virgil:] Sic omnia retro ... [and:] Piscium et summa genus hoesit ulmo

      London: Thomas McLean, 18 June 1825. Aquatint and engraving, coloured by hand. Sheet sizes: 9 3/8 x 11 5/8 inches and 9 1/2 x 11 7/8 inches. A handsome and humourous pair of angling prints. The first image shows a fisherman with a slack line just after losing a fish and stepping into a cow pad, with the Virgil caption roughly translated as "Thus all things change for the worse." The Horace quotation is a play on words, substituting "Perchicos" [perch] for "Persicos" [i.e. Persian], and roughly translated as "The finest perch is not for me." The second image shows an angler who has pulled a fish from the water but whose line (and fish) are caught in a tree. The famous fishing-related Horace quotation follows, "The fish was entangled in the elm tree." The Virgil quotation refers to the climbing into the river to free his line and can be read as "courage to tempt the raging stream."

Barber and exhibited his first picture (a miniature portrait) at the Royal Academy when he was sixteen.

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."

        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.. Engraved title, engraved index leaf, fifty- eight handcolored engraved maps, two handcolored engraved comparative charts of mountains and rivers. Imperial quarto. Expertly bound to style in red straight-grained morocco, incorporating original marbled paper-covered boards, original orange-toned engraved title label on upper cover, the flat spine gilt in six compartments, divided by horizontal fillets, lettered in gilt in the second compartment, Finley's small format letterpress trade label (2 3/4 x 3 1/2 inches) mounted on front free endpaper. In a modern red cloth box, dark red morocco lettering piece. Provenance: pencil signature on front free endpaper. A fine copy of the second edition (after the first and second issues of the previous year), from one of the greatest American map publisher's of the period. A contemporary review of the first edition applies 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). The same points which distinguish the first and second issues of the first edition also distinguish the present edition from the first issue. The most obvious are on the engraved index leaf: the Eastern Hemisphere is listed as number 1 in the first issue and number 2 in the second; in the first issue number 11 is Connecticut and number 12 is Rhode Island; in the second issue number 11 is Rhode Island and number 12 is Connecticut. 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. PHILLIPS ATLASES 4314 (another ed). RISTOW, p.268 (ref). RUMSEY, p.109 (another ed).
