        Méthode lichénographique et genera : ornée de quatre planches, dont trois coloriées donnant les caractères des genres qui composent la famille des lichens avec leurs détails grossis

      Paris, Fimin Didot 1825 - In-4° relié demi-chagrin havane clair, titre gravé, 100 pages, 4 planches hors-texte dont trois coloriées en couleurs et un grand tableau dépliant. Les coiffes sont émoussées et légèrement rognées sinon le volume est très beau. Un ancien possesseur au 19° siècle à tracé à la plume d'une fine écriture régulière quelques lignes sur Fée qui retrace sa carrière sur la page de garde. Antoine-Laurent-Appollinaire Fée, né à Issoudun (Indre), le 7 Novembre 1789, pharmacien et botaniste distingué, membre de l'Académie royale de médecine et de plusieurs sociétés savantes, a été professeur à l'Hôpital-Militaire d'instruction de Lille. Puis il s'établit à Strasbourg, où il devint directeur du Jardin des Plantes, et enfin professeur et pharmacien en chef de l'Hôpital militaire de cette ville. Il est l'auteur de très nombreux ouvrages tant littéraires que scientifique; on lui doit ainsi une Flore de Virgile, et une de Théocrite. - - - Antoine Fée was a French botanist who authored works on botany, mycology, and pharmacology. He was a member of the Royal Academy of Medicine and several learned societies, and later an instructor at teaching hospitals, firstly in Lille in 1825 then Strasbourg in 1832, when he was promoted to M.D. and professor of botany. Fée was also responsible for the botanical garden in Strasbourg until the city was taken by the Prussians at the end of their war with France. In 1874, the year of his death, Fée was elected as the president of the Société botanique de France. He first published this essay, Essai sur les Cryptogames de écorces exotiques officinales (Essay on the Cryptogams that grow on Exotic Medicinal Barks) in 1824, thereafter a supplement appeared in 1837. At the time he was working primarily as a cryptogamist; working on ferns, lichens, and fungi. In these comprehensive studies, Fée was primarily focused on tropical and medicinal plants and extensively describes lichen material which fit into these categories. Notably, many of this genus of lichen were first established by Fée. Cachet gras d'un ancien propriétaire sur la page de titre A. Séjourné [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Memoirs of Prince Alexy Haimatoff. Translated from the Original Latin M.S. Under the Immediate Inspection of the King, by John Brown, Esq

      London: Printed for T. Hookham, 1825, 1825. First edition, second issue with the title-page a cancel, replacing the original 1813 title-page and preface. Block, The English Novel, page 111; Noted under Garside & Schöwerling 1813:30; OCLC and Copac together record three copies of this second issue (BL, Leeds, and Yale) and six of the first issue (BL, Bodleian, Harvard, NYPL, Texas & Yale). Edges a little worn; some foxing; cancel-title just starting, but sound; very good copy.. 12mo, contemporary brown half cloth, marbled paper boards, gilt decorations. The youthful and rare first novel by friend, comrade, acolyte, and later memorialist of the Romantics, Thomas Jefferson Hogg (1792-1862). Prince Alexy is an animated tale that shows the influence of Ann Radcliffe, William Godwin, William Beckford and Voltaire, among others, in its philosophical, picaresque narrative about the life of a Russian prince, who travels the world seeking truth about love, education and governance. The novel also shows the influence of Shelley, who was very approving of the story in a review published in 1814 in the Critical Review, which became one of his best-known pieces of literary criticism: "[Hogg's] great though indisciplinable energies and fervid rapidity of conception embodies scenes and situations, and of passions affording inexhaustible food for wonder and delight. The interest is deep and irresistible. A moral enchanter seems to have conjured up the shapes of all that is beautiful and strange to suspend the faculties in fascination and astonishment." The relationship between Jefferson Hogg and Shelley, which began when they were students at Oxford, has been well documented.

        Observations sur les pièces d'anatomie de M. le Docteur Auzoux

      Caen, Imprimerie de Bonneserre, 1825. 23, (1)pp broché, couverture imprimée en noir 1825, 1825, in-8, 23, (1)pp, broché, couverture imprimée en noir, Première et unique édition de cet opuscule témoignant de la querelle profonde entre les deux pères de l'anatomie clastique. Jean-François Ameline (1763-1835) fut d'abord médecin puis professeur d'anatomie à l'école de médecine de Caen. Il passa de nombreuses années à créer des modèles d'anatomie artificielle pour l'enseignement des étudiants. Son procédé faisait lui aussi appel au papier ; c'est la raison pour laquelle il entra en rivalité avec Louis Auzoux au début de sa carrière. Ameline a conservé une grande rancoeur envers Auzoux qu'il considérait comme un plagiaire et le spoliateur de sa technique. Dans cet ouvrage, il commente et critique chacune des publications écrites sur Auzoux lors de la présentation de ses pièces devant les différentes académies. Cette polémique se prolongera jusqu'à la mort des deux protagonistes, mais la différence de technique (Ameline utilisait le modelage, Auzoux le moulage) utilisée par les deux anatomistes suffit pourtant à elle seule à lever les ambiguïtés. "Si Monsieur Auzoux n'est point inventeur, il a tellement perfectionné son modèle et il a avec lui tant de favorables dissemblances, qu'en louant aujourd'hui Ameline, nous deviendrons, peut-être, injustes envers M. Auzoux". (Rapport de la Société Médicale d'Emulation, 1823, cité par Ameline lui-même dans cet ouvrage). Bel état

        Academy for Grown Horsemen

      nbsp; London - Ackermann 1825 - An extremely scarce first edition of this humorous equestrian work. Illustrated throughout with 27 hand coloured engravings. Collated, complete. The author, Geoffry Gambado, was a pseudonym for famous caricaturist Henry William Bunbury. It appears that this work waspublished posthumously, with Bunbury dying in 1811. In his work,Bunbury's serious effortswere not always recognised howeverhis caricaturesare asfamous as those byhis contemporaries Thomas Rowlandson and James Gillray. Other examples of Bunbury's work include Country Club, Barber's Shop and A Long Story. Unlike other caricaturists of the day Bunbury did not offend the nobilities of his day by creating political satire and he had many great friendships with the nobilities. Condition: In paper covered boards. Rebacked, with original paper covered boards and spine laid over and a new imitation spine label attached. Externally, sound with slight rubbing to original paper covered boards as well as heavy handling marks and the odd spot. Internally, firmly bound. Prior owner's stamp to front pastedown. Pages are slightly age toned to edges with the odd account of offsetting and the odd spot throughout. Overall: VERY GOOD. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Geognostische Umrisse der Rheinländer zwischen Basel und Mainz mit besonderer Rücksicht auf das Vorkommen des Steinsalzes, nach Beobachtungen entworfen auf einer Reise im Jahre 1823 gesammelt.

      Essen, G. Bädeker, 1825. Two volumes in one. 8vo (19.8 x 12.0 cm). 782 pp., one folding lithographed plate with several geological profiles. Contemporary half cloth over marbled boards. Paper label with the title in an old hand on the spine. Original endpapers.= One of the first geological descriptions of this southern part of Germany (and adjacent countries), viz. the Taunus, Schwarzwald, Vosges, and the Swiss Jura, Schwäbische Alp. Especially interesting because of the description of the petrographic formation of these mountains. Karl [Carl] August Ludwig Freiherr von Oeynhausen (1795-1865), the main author, was a wealthy German geologist and patron, who popularised the salt bath of the famous Spa now named Bad Oeynhausen. In the introduction on page v the authors state "Mit dem vorliegende Werke in Verbindung steht eine geognostische Charte in 2 Blättern" which is nearly always lacking as it was published by another publishing house in Berlin. Boards a bit rubbed, front flyleaf clipped, erased library stamp on title. The folded map reinforced, otherwise a good copy. Very rare. Zittel, p. 513.
