        Voyages pittoresques et romantiques dans l'ancienne France (Haute-Normandie, Seine-Inférieure, Eure).

      Paris, Didot, 1820-1825. - Deux volumes grand in-folio, 242 planches hors-texte et nombreuses vignettes lith. et dessinées par Fragonard, Villeneuve, Léger, Vauzelle, Athalin, Isabey, H.Vernet, etc. Tome I : 1 frontispice, (4) ff., 131 pp., (5) ff., 89 planches dont 7 en double état (1,2,4,5,6,12,13bis et 17) et une planche réhaussée (le Tombeau d'Agnes Sorel); Tome II : (2)ff., 190 pp. Y compris le frontispice , (2) ff., 153 planches dont 2 bis. Bel exemplaire à grandes marges complet des 242 belles lithographies, la plupart en deux tons sur Chine appliqué. Exemplaire frais malgré quelques rousseurs sans gravité et une claire mouillure dans la marge inf. de quelques feuillets au début et fin du tome II. Restauration aux premiers feuillets du tome II. Joli demi-maroquin rouge à coins d'époque, dos à nerfs orné. Légères salissures et éraflures, un coin cassé. L'avènement des chemins de fer et celui de la pierre lithographique ont permis l'essor des recueils de paysages romantiques dont "Les Voyages" du Baron Taylor sont à la fois l'ancêtre et le sommet du genre. Les planches sont des estampes originales, tirées hors-texte, dessinées par les plus grands artistes du moment. Inventée par Senefelder en 1796, la lithographie fut introduite à Paris en 1816 sous l'impulsion de Godefroy Engelmann. Taylor fit appel à ce dernier pour son ouvrage. Cette publication est, selon Brunet, l’une des premières et des plus importantes productions françaises de la lithographie, née sous l’impulsion de James Taylor, Charles Nodier et Alphonse de Cailleux. Brunet IV-684 ; Vicaire VII-763.

        Journal of a Residence and Travels in Colombia, During the Years 1823 and 1824.

      - London: Printed for Henry Colburn, 1825. 2 vols., 8vo, xvi, 524; viii, 515 pp. Two hand-colored frontispieces, one engraved, the second an aquatint; two large folding maps (duplicates). Contemporary full green polished calf, backstrips gilt with red morocco labels, covers decoratively bordered in gilt and blind, board edges and turn-ins gilt-rolled, all edges marbled, marbled endpapers, green silk page-markers. Gift inscription dated 1836 on flyleaf. The errata slip mentioned in Abbey is not present. Bindings lightly rubbed along joints, with a few dings to the backstrips; light offsetting from frontispieces on to title-pages; a handsome set, more than complete with the extra map. First Edition. Captain Cochrane, born into a distinguished (and notorious) Royal Navy clan, took a two-year leave from the Navy to advise the Colombian pearl fishery how to protect its divers from sharks, to travel around the country, and to study possibilities for copper mining. The breadth of his curiosity was apparently limitless and he records his adventures in absorbing detail, from observations of fandango dancers and muleteers, to a very early description of the indigenous method for extracting dart poison from frogs (probably the Golden Poison Frog). The two frontispieces, showing "The Author in the Travelling Costume of the Country" and a "Precipitous Descent of a Cordillera of the Andes in the Province of Choco," are outstanding. One wonders how the second copy of the very good map, compiled and engraved by the remarkable Sidney Hall, was acquired. Abbey, Travel, 718. Sabin 14072. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      - OCLC 156080883; for the author: Edwards, "Raverty, Henry George (1825-1906)", in: ODNB (online ed.).

Henry George Raverty (1825-1906) was an orientalist and army officer who served in Bombay and Gujarat. In India he learned Hindustani, Persian, Gujarati and Marathi. After he was transferred to the north-west frontier at Peshawa in 1849, his interest shifted to the Pushtu or Afghan language and culture, resulting in many learned articles on the subject. Raverty's "immense labours gave him a high reputation among foreign oriental scholars" (Edwards).From the library of the Ducs de Luynes, Château de Dampierre, with their bookplate on pastedown (showing the arms of Charles Marie d'Albert de Luynes (1783-1839), 7th Duc de Luynes).

        Îles Sandwich: Maisons de Kraïmokou, Premier Ministre du Roi. Fabrication des étoffes.

      Paris: c. 1825. Proof before numbering, 290 x 420 mm., a fine rich impression on wove paper, "86" added in manuscript to upper right. A beautiful engraved view, prepared for the official account of Freycinet's voyage in the Uranie, of the house of the Hawaiian King Kamehameha's Chief Minister Kalanimoku (whose name is transcribed here as Kraïmokou; his name was sometimes written as Karaimoku, or variations on Crymoku, but he was widely known as William Pitt, having adopted the name in honour of the British Prime Minister, and sometimes addressed as Billy Bitt). Kalanimoku was an important liaison with the French during their 1819 visit to the islands, widely respected for his reliability and trustworthiness -- for which he was often referred to as the "Iron Cable of Hawaii". He featured heavily in the published account of the voyage for this reason, but also because he expressly requested that he be baptised by the French cleric on the voyage (the scene of his baptism aboard the French ship is one of the most famous images of this period of Hawaiian history). Kalanimoku is seen here standing in the doorway of one of his houses behind his wife Likelike, who is making tapa cloth. In the foreground is an Olo board, the largest of the Hawaiian wooden surfboards, which were reserved for royalty.The image later appeared in the huge official publication of the voyage but this is an example of a proof stage of the engraving, before it has been numbered for inclusion in the series of engravings. This proof represents the last stage in the printing process, before the Historique album itself was printed, and is known to have come from the Freycinet family archive: its presence there is no surprise, given how closely Freycinet is known to have supervised the production of the official account of the voyage, and the close watch he kept on all details of the publication, and particularly on the illustrations. Provenance: Louis de Freycinet, commander of the Uranie; subsequently in Freycinet family archives, dispersed in the twentieth century. Very good condition, with wide margins.

In La cuisinière poétique Charles Monselet ephasised the connection: ... 'may your dinner be a poem'" (Green). Monselet's works on gastronomic subjects are praised for their originality and charming style (Bitting). By his contemporaries he was called "Le roi des gastronomes".

        Decamerone

      London - William Pickering, 1825 Book. Fair. Hardcover. First edition.. A set of The Decameron by Giovanni Boccaccio. Collated: Complete in three volumes with the 10 Stothard Plates. First edition thus with teh Foscolo introduciton. Scarce. Giovanni Boccacciowas an Italian author and poet, a friend, student, and correspondent of Petrarch, an important Renaissance humanist and the author of a number of notable works including The Decameron, On Famous Women, and his poetry in the Italian vernacular. Boccaccio is particularly notable for his dialogue, of which it has been said that it surpasses in verisimilitude that of virtually all of his contemporaries, since they were medieval writers and often followed formulaic models for character and plot. The Decameron, with the subtitle of Prince Galehaut is a 14th-century medieval allegory by Giovanni Boccaccio, told as a frame story encompassing 100 tales by ten young people. Boccaccio probably began composing the work in 1350, and finished it in 1351 or 1353. The various tales of love in The Decameron range from the erotic to the tragic. Tales of wit, practical jokes, and life lessons contribute to the mosaic. In addition to its literary import, it documents life in 14th-century Italy. Condition: In original publisher's cloth bindings with paper labels to the spines. Externally, rather worn. Corners are bumped on all three volumes and boards are stained. Spines are chipped and the back strips are lifting. Front joint is very weak on volume I and likely to detach. Front hinge failed to volume III. Internally, binding is loosening in places. Pages 273-4 and 277-84 are loose in volume I. Pages are generally bright and clean with some scattered foxing. There is a bookplate to the front pastedown in volume III. Overall: FAIR..

        Narrative of a Voyage Round the World, Performed in her Majesty's Ship Sulphur, During the Years 1836-1842, Including Details of the Naval Operations in China, from Dec 1840 to Nov 1841

      2 volumes. xxxvii+[2]+387+[8 ad] pages with frontispiece, woodcuts in text and 7 steel-engraved plates; vi+[2]+474 pages with frontispiece, woodcuts in texts and 10 steel-engraved plates. Royal octavo (9¼x5½") in publisher's original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt covers decorative blind stamped. First Edition.In 1825, Edward Belcher accompanied Frederick William Beechey's expedition to the Pacific and Bering Strait as a surveyor. In 1836. he commanded a surveying ship on the north and west coasts of Africa and in the British seas. Belcher took up the work which Beechey had left unfinished on the Pacific coast of South America. He was on board the bomb vessel HMS Sulphur, which was ordered to return to England in 1839 by the Trans-Pacific route. Belcher made various observations at a number of islands which he visited, having been delayed by being dispatched to take part in the war in China in 1840. On 26 January 1841, the then Commander Belcher landed on Possession Point at the north shore Hong Kong Island and made the first British survey of Hong Kong harbor. After the war's end in 1842 he reached home and for his services was made a Knight Bachelor in the following year. He was then engaged in HMS Samarang, in surveying work in the East Indies, the Philippines, Geomun-do (Port Hamilton) and other places, until 1847. In 1852 Belcher led the last and largest Admiralty expedition to rescue Sir John Franklin. He was also to look for his former surveying officer in Hong Kong, Richard Collinson, and Robert McClure, whose ships had not been seen after entering the Bering Strait. He did a great deal of sledge exploration, rescued McClure and abandoned four of his five ships in the ice. He had five ships: Assistance (Belcher), Resolute (Henry Kellett, second mate George Nares), the steam tenders Pioneer(Sherard Osborn) and Intrepid (Leopold McClintock) and the depot ship North Star (William Pullen). Belcher and one tender were to enter Wellington Channel, where Franklin was thought to be, while Kellett was to go west to Melville Island and look for Collinson and McClure. North Star was to stay at Beechey Island as a supply base. He left the Nore in April 1850. By early winter Assistanceand Pioneer were frozen in at Northumberland Sound to the north of Wellington Channel while Resolute and Intrepid were frozen in off Melville Island (Arctic)?the first ships this far west since William Edward Parry in 1819. A great deal of exploration was done by man-hauled sledges. In April 1853 Leopold McClintock and others left the Resolute on sledges and returned 105 days later, having covered 1,400 miles and discovered Prince Patrick Island. Another party went west and discovered Robert McClure, whose ship was frozen in at Mercy Bay. Belcher went north by sledge and found a channel at the northern tip of Devon Island, hinting that Franklin might have used it to escape to Baffin Bay. When the ice broke up that summer, he pushed his ships up Wellington Channel and became trapped again. By February 1854 Belcher was becoming increasingly worried about the safety of his ships and men. In April he ordered Kellett to abandon his ships and return by sledge to North Star. Belcher abandoned his two ships in late July. Aided by two ships that showed up at Beechey Island (Phoenix and Breadalbane), the whole party returned to England. Belcher went through a court martial, which was automatic for any captain who had lost a ship. He was exonerated, but his sword was returned to him 'without observation'. He never again received an active command. Curiously Resolute broke free of the ice and drifted all the way to Davis Strait, where it was picked up by an American whaler.Condition:Some staining and wear to covers, spines a bit faded, ends chipped and worn, rear joint of Vol. I with chipping and loss; hinges repaired at endpapers, some light foxing and occasional mostly marginal damp staining within, the three folding maps which should be loose in a pocket not present; overall good, uncommon in the original cloth.

The part of Armando was written for the castrato Giovanni Battista Velluti, which makes the work noteworthy as the last major opera with a role for that voice type. Following its Venetian première, Il crociato took other houses by storm: within a little over a year productions were mounted in Florence, Trieste, Padua, Parma and London. The work then served as Meyerbeer's entrée to Paris, where it was first performed at the Théâtre Italien on 25 September 1825 with the soprano Giuditta Pasta in the role of Armando and Nicholas Levasseur as Aladino."

      London: for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, Brown, and Green,, 1825. Containing an Examination of the Antarctic Sea, to the seventy-fourth Degree of Latitude: and a Visit to Tierra del Fuego, with a Particular Account of the Inhabitants. To which is added, much Useful Information on the Coasting Navigation of Cape Horn, and the Adjacent Lands, with Charts of Harbours, etc. Octavo (225 x 140 mm). Uncut in original boards, sometime rebacked retaining the original paper spine label. Hand-coloured aquatint frontispiece, 8 engraved charts of which 6 folding, 6 aquatint plates comprising 4 illustrations of ships and seals after Weddell and 2 folding plates of coastal profiles. Ownership inscription, "M. A. Wilson, May 1955", and recent book label of American bibliophile and noted polar collector Martin L. Greene to the front pastedown. With the errata slip and the publisher's 16-page catalogue, "sometimes removed by contemporary binders" (Rosove). A few small scuffs to boards, tips rubbed, front inner hinge superficially cracked, but firm, a few leaves faintly dog-eared, very short closed tear to stub of map facing p. 1, plate facing p. 172 offset, second plate of coastal profiles foxed, the contents otherwise with only a few trivial marks. An excellent copy. First edition. An excellent copy in the original boards, with the ownership inscription of British pilot, African treasure-hunter and Antarctic explorer Frank Bickerton, as "Capt. R. F. C. 1917", to the front pastedown. A stirring provenance: Bickerton was one of the first students to enrol on the new aeronautical engineering programme at the City and Guilds London Institute in 1906, and was recruited shortly after to the Australian Antarctic Expedition of 1911-14, becoming the first to deploy a propeller-driven sledge on the Antarctic, and participating in a famous 1,600-mile sledge journey across previously uncharted territory, later receiving the King's Polar Medal in silver and having Cape Bickerton named in his honour. The expedition was "one of the most successful to be undertaken during the whole of the Heroic Age", and its concrete achievements easily surpassed those of Shackleton's Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition, which Bickerton was set to join before the onset of war, before enlisting instead in the Royal Flying Corps, serving with distinction in 10 and later 70 Squadron (Haddesley, Born Adventurer: The Life of Frank Bickerton, Antarctic Pioneer, introduction); After demobilisation he pursued travels in Africa and North America, and volunteered for the BEF in 1939, finishing the war as wing commander; he died at Borth in 1954. Over the course of a two-year sealing voyage, Weddell and his crew reached latitude 74°15'', the southernmost then achieved, discovering what is now known as the Weddell Sea, and also visited and described the Cape Verde Islands, South Orkney (which Weddell is credited with having discovered on his 1819-21 voyage), South Shetland, and South Georgia, before wintering in the Falklands and making further landfalls at Tierra del Fuego, Patagonia, and Montevideo on the return journey. "Even when sail ships were replaced by steam ships, and wooden hulls by metallic ice-cutters, his explorations were difficult to duplicate" (idem); his narrative is also "recognized as of considerable importance for its account of the voyage and its survey of the South Shetlands" (ODNB). A highly appealing copy of the book considered "the true starting point for an Antarctic collection" (Taurus).

First edition of this catalogue of shells in the Tankerville collection, numbering 2487 specimens, with Sowerby's appendix giving detailed descriptions of new species. The fine plates, which illustrate some of these new species, were lithographed by Hullmandel, presumably from Sowerby's originals as he was an accomplished artist./Charles Bennet, fourth Earl of Tankerville, 'formed a shell collection which became famous, particularly after his death when it was put up for sale. It exceeded even the Bligh collection in choice and rare shells for it included some of the best specimens from the Portland museum and a large part of the Calonne shell collection.../'The Tankerville collection contained several rare and valuable shells ... but most of them had previously belonged to other well-known collectors and, indeed, several can be traced back to the Cook voyages, the first and most productive of which had been completed over fifty years earlier. The Tankerville sale was virtually the swan song of the Cook material... ' (Dance). It was purchased by G.B. Sowerby, for an undisclosed sum between three and four thousand pounds; Sowerby then issued this catalogue as a prospectus for sale.//Dance 291.

Designs were done freehand in sumi-e on thirty eight folded leaves of hoshi shi paper sprinkled with mica: twenty three pages of special designs were also done in gray.

        Zeebad Scheveningen - Louis Bleuler, ca. 1825.

      ZEEBAD SCHEVENINGEN BIJ ONDERGAANDE ZON?Vue de Scheweningen, vers les bains de Mer.? Gouache op gekleurd papier vervaardigd door Louis Bleuler ca. 1825. Gesigneerd ?chez Louis Bleuler a Schafhouse? met pen en inkt onder de voorstelling. Genummerd ?79?boven de voorstelling rechts. Afm. (voorstelling) 32,5 x 48,5 cm.We zien de kop van de Keizerstraat met links het Heerenlogement en onderaan het duin het zomerhuis Nieuw Soetenburgh. Op het duin staat de Theekoepel van dominee Faassen De Heer, die van 1798 tot 1835 predikant was te Scheveningen. Waarschijnlijk moet het bruin gekleurde gebouwtje met de paal ervoor de Seinpost voorstellen. Paviljoen Von Wied, gebouwd in 1827, staat nog niet op de voorstelling. Op de achtergrond zien we twee strandtenten en, in de vloedlijn, drie badkoetsen. Vermoedelijk heeft de kunstenaar Scheveningen nooit bezocht, de byzantijnse koepel geheel rechts is fantasie.Bleuler (1792 -1850) wordt gerekend tot de beste Zwitserse landschapschilders van zijn tijd. Hij studeerde in Parijs, maar betrok later kasteel Laufen (CH) naast de Rheinfall, Europa's grootste waterval. De Rijn vormde een grote bron van inspiratie, hetgeen resulteerde in een schitterende serie van 80 gravures met gezichten op steden en landschappen ?Der Rhein von den Quellen bis zur M?ndung?. Met deze gouache, een ontwerp voor plaat nr. 79, bevinden we ons in het gebied van de monding van de Rijn.Dit boekwerk verscheen in 1826 en was in eerste instantie bedoeld als souvenir voor de Grand Tourist, (veelal Engelse) elite die zich een toeristische reis langs de Rijn konden veroorloven, maar de keizer van Oostenrijk en Marie Isabelle van Sicili? behoorden tot Bleuler?s eerste en belangrijkste afnemers.Prijs: ?3.950,-.

        Ohio and Indiana . Improved to 1825

      H. S. Tanner, Philadelphia 1825 - Copper-engraving with full period color. An important early mapping of Ohio and Indiana: the significant second issue, reflecting new boundaries in northern Indiana created by Indian treaties. Henry Tanner's A New American Atlas , was the most distinguished atlas published in America during the nineteenth century. The maps were carefully constructed from the best and most recent surveys. They were finely engraved on a large-scale, printed on high quality paper, and carefully hand colored. Because of the great expense involved in the production and publication, the atlas was published in five parts between 1819 and 1823. The map of Ohio and Indiana originally appeared in the second part of the atlas, published in 1819. Tanner drew upon a number of important surveys, including those of Bourne, Ellicott, Volney, Darby, Kilbourn, and others. The first issue of the map is noted as being one of the earliest maps of Indiana as a state (1816). This second revised edition of the map from 1823, however, reflects the enormous changes in the region. Besides the addition of numerous counties in western Ohio, the mapping of northern Indiana changed completely following a series of Indian treaties in 1818 and 1819, including the important October 1818 Treaty of St. Mary's with the Miami. Virtually all of Indiana north of the Wabash is shown as the land of the Miami. The Delawares, who had ceded their Indiana lands in October 1818, are no longer mentioned. Several counties now appear in the state north of the 40th parallel. Other changes include the additions of many new roads, including a lengthy trail extending from Fort Wayne to Fort Dearborn. Phillips, Atlases, 3669-12 ;cf. Ristow, American Maps and Mapmakers , pps. 191-198; Rumsey 2755.012; cf. Sabin 94323.

His father, Baron John Keating, of Irish ancestry, had been an officer in the French army in the West Indies and had settled in Wilmington, Delaware. He was educated at the University of Pennsylvania, and then in France and Switzerland, where he studied mining. In 1822, he became Professor of Chemistry and Mineralogy at the University of Pennsylvania and a member of the American Philosophical Society. He is perhaps best known for his work on the staff of Stephen Long's expedition to the Great Lakes in 1823, an account of which he published in 1824. In the account he first hypothesized the existence of what is now known as Lake Agassiz. Formed at the end of the last ice age during the retreat of the great North American glaciers Lake Agassiz was, at its peak, much larger than any currently existing lake. The tremendous significance of the discovery has come to be appreciated in recent decades because the draining of Lake Agassiz into the North Atlantic Ocean is now generally thought to have been responsible for sudden periods of cooling of Northern Hemisphere climate at the end of the Pleistocene. The most dramatic of these periods of cooling is known as the Younger Dryas.Condition:Minor tears at map folds, foxing to title and frontispiece, some offset darkening to title else a very good set.
