[Bloxam, Richard]
London: Samuel Leigh, 1825. Second edition of this innovative nineteenth-century set of astronomical cards, issued one year after the first edition, revised to depict additional stars. Each brightly hand-colored card depicts the mythological figures within a constellation, while strategic pinholes indicate the location of the stars, allowing a viewer to visualize their appearance in the sky when the card is held up to a light. (Few copies of Urania's Mirror survive intact, as the cards frequently caught on fire.) A contemporary review in the Weekly Globe declared: "By this elegant and ingenious device, the study of astronomy is rendered not only familiar and amusing, but a knowledge of this sublime science is communicated at a glance more effectually than by a course of lectures." The set depicts 79 constellations in all, with the final card (Hydra, Corvus, Centaurus, et al.) boasting the most on a single card at twelve. Although attributed to "a lady," Urania's Mirror was almost certainly designed by the Reverend Richard Bloxam, assistant master at Rugby School; the images are based on the illustrations in Alexander Jamieson's 1822 Celestial Atlas. A fine set. Complete set of 32 hand-colored engraved cards, measuring 7.75 x 5.5 inches, perforated to indicate position of stars, tissue guard mounted to verso of each card. Housed in original green and yellow card publisher's box with hand-colored pictorial title mounted to lid, engraved pastedowns to sides of box, silk ribbon pull. Half-sheet of nineteenth-century manuscript astronomy notes laid into box. Without accompanyin … [Click Below for Full Description]

Various and Jean de La Fontaine; notice by A. C. M. Robert
Paris-Etienne Cabin, 1825. Book. A scarce first edition of the Unpublished Fables of the XIIth, XIIIth and XIVth Centuries and The Fables of de la Fontaine. Preceded with a notice on the Fabulists by A. C. M. Robert to first volume and with illustrated half titles throughout and facsimile letters one of which folds out. First edition. In two volumes complete. In French. Jean de La Fontaine (1621-1695) was the most famous French fabulist and one of the most widely read French poets of the 17th century. He is known above all for his Fables, which provided a model for subsequent fabulists across Europe and numerous alternative versions in France, and in French regional languages. According to Flaubert, he was the only French poet to understand and master the texture of the French language before Hugo. The Fables were originally issued in several volumes from 1668 to 1694. Divided into 12 books, there are 239 of the Fables, varying in length from a few lines to some hundred. The first collection of Fables Choisies appearedin 1668, dividing 124 fables into six books over its two volumes. By this time, La Fontaine was 47 and known to readers chiefly as the author of Contes, lively stories in verse, grazing and sometimes transgressing the bounds of contemporary moral standards. The Fables, in contrast, were completely in compliance with these standards. Eight new fables published in 1671 would eventually take their place in books 7-9 of the second collection. Books 7 and 8 appeared in 1678, while 9-11 appeared in 1679. Between 1682 and 1685 a few fables were published dealing with … [Click Below for Full Description]

GENET, Edmond Charles (1763-1834)
Packard & Van Benthuysen, Albany, 1825. (9 x 5 3/4 inches). 112pp. 5 engraved plates, folding table. Foxing. Publisher's lettered boards, rebacked Among the earliest American works on aviation. An ambassador of the French Republic to the United States, Genet settled in New York and married Cornelia Clinton, the daughter of New York Governor George Clinton. Despite its title, which suggests hydraulics, the work largely deals with aviation and is regarded as the first printed suggestion of the theory of a heavier-than-air machine taking flight. The appendix includes chapters on "navigating the atmosphere," "applying steam power to aeronautics," and the "velocity of different winds." "This pamphlet by the former Ambassador from France contains a proposal for a large airship and other suggestions for the use of the aerostatic principle" (Aeronautic Americana). The "first book printed in the United States on practical aeronautics and on the first patent for an aeronautical invention" (Streeter). Scarce.

West Indies.]
[?St. Croix: Christianstæd:] Trykt og Udgivet af Elizabeth James, February 22, 1825. A printed broadside, approx. 39 x 24cm., printed to one side only in two columns, text mostly in English, indistinct printing of several letters or words, sometime folded, soiled, edges ragged, some time tipped on to and album leaf. This broadside announces the destructive fire that on February 12th, 1825, ravaged St. Thomas in the Danish West Indies (now part of the United States Virgin Islands). The fire, which reportedly “originated entirely from accident”, laid waste to one third of the town, and its containment required the help of crews from British and American naval ships, and those from merchant ships in the port. The fire spread quickly throughout “North Crownprince’s Quarter”, destroying every house on Frenchman’s Hill. The first column of the broadside describes the fire and its aftermath, the second column comprises a circular from P. v. Scholten, expressing thanks to individuals for their services during the fire. According to a recollection of the episode by a resident of the island, the fire was called by locals ‘Martina’s fire’ after the Curacao woman in whose property the fire had started (Johan Nissen Reminiscences of a 46 Years’ Residence in the Island of St. Thomas, p. 140). The broadside was printed by Elizabeth James, publisher in the 1820s of the islands’ gazette, the Dansk Vestindisk Regierings Avis.

SALVANDY Narcisse.Archille. de
1825. First edition. 8vo. Recent quarter morocco over marbled boards, spine gilt. 81, [1]pp. Paris, Chez Ponthieu, A rare and level-headed contribution to the ongoing debate in France on how to best protect trade. This was written during a turbulent period following the French Revolution, the loss of Haiti, the rise and fall of Napoleon, and the signing of a treaty which obliged France to abolish slavery: all of which had significant effects on the French economy. ?For some time, French merchants had demanded reestablishment of trade with Haiti as a cure for the decline in French foreign trade, while the clandestine trade in coffee and indigo increased between French ports and Haiti. Supporting this position, N.A. de Salvandy, a well-known liberal writer and politician, proposed that reopening trade with Haiti could bolster stagnant French commerce. He reminded his readers that Saint-Domingue had been lost to France for a long time, but the island had never ceased to be fertile? (Kwon). While Salvandy posits that Haiti might become a French protectorate, he stridently opposes the idea of reconquering Haiti for France and writes: ?other than some young publicists . no one would want to go and undertake an expedition two thousand leagues from its shores for a cause that is evidently condemned by fortune. No serious man has proposed it.? (Daut's translation.) The last copy to appear on the market was at Otto Lange in 1923.

Portrait lithographié d'après Boilly. J.-H. Hassenfratz, né en 1755, était le fils aîné d'une famille de taverniers de Montmartre. Après une formation de charpentier, il étudia la sidérurgie et l'exploitation des mines en Europe Centrale. Il fut l'élève de Monge puis dirigea quelque temps le laboratoire de Lavoisier. Hassenfratz eut aussi une carrière politique : membre du club des Jacobins, membre de la Commune à deux reprises, il se réfugia ensuite à Sedan pour échapper aux Thermidoriens. A la fin de sa vie, il enseignait à Polytechnique et à l'École des Mines. Il publia d'ailleurs cet ouvrage à un âge avancé. Il rappelle dans sa préface les différentes étapes des expériences sur la chaux et égratigne au passage son ancien élève Vicat. - (D.S.B.

George Sinclair
James Ridgeway. Very Good: Gorgeous Illustrations Intact: wonderful exploration of British natural history. George Sinclair was a botanist; in this work, he is exploring the nutritional value of various grasses as animal fodder through comparison of their water-soluble components. Originally published in folio form with cuttings of the grasses mentioned, this is the second edition and is profusely illustrated with prints of the various grasses in color. The study was instituted by the Duke of Bedford while recuperating from ill-health and done with the assistance of various others including Sir Humphrey Davies. The illustrations are just stunning both in detail and the accuracy of approach. Filled with tables and comparisons, this is a great historical document detailing grasses or "weeds" that were cultivated in Great Britain to aid in the feeding of farm animals. Prints signed variously by "C. Hullmandel", or "E.D. Smith,del and A Bailey Sculp". Please do not hesitate to email with questions or for more pictures. Very Good Condition: 4to, leather spine with marble boards; spine is grass green with gilt bands bracketing the title on a brown background with gilt lettering. Re-bound. Some age appropriate discoloration to the pages along with some shadowing, specifically of the title page due to age and ink composition. Pencil marks with occasional marginalia.

La Chine, moeurs, usages, costumes, arts et métiers. petit in folio ( ca. 34,5 x 25,5 cm), album rare et très recherché pour ses superbes lithographies rehaussées à la couleur, chaque planche étant suivie d'une planche de texte explicatif. Doré sur tranches, gardes citron, reliure romantique d'origine à percaline sombre présentant un large décors doré au 1er plat avec le titre "album chinois" au centre, et 1 plaque dorée à motif chinois au second plat. La toile du dos a disparue et avec elle sans doute le titre doré en long, par ailleurs une exposition ancienne à l'humidité a rendu les plats légèrement concaves et laissé une large auréole (mouillure claire) traversant l'album, comme visible sur les images. Cette trace est le plus souvent invisible au niveau des planches (sauf les quelques premières) en raison d'un papier plus épais employé pour celles-ci, ce qui a contribué fort heureusement à beaucoup mieux protéger le papier des altération du temps et de l'hygrométrie. Idem pour les rousseurs et autres petites tâches blanches, discrètes voire inexistantes sur les planches, d'avantage présentes sur les feuillets de texte. 4 planches sur papier à teinte rosée, difficile de … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: John Fairburn et al. First edition, 1825-1826. 3 volumes, tall 8vo, xvi, 448 pp. xvi, 448 pp, xvi, 448 pp. Contemporary half gilt tooled calf with brown calf spine labels, marbled boards, text in double columns, 3 engraved frontispieces by George Cruikshank, 3 added engraved titles (a bit foxed), 84 woodcuts (24 by George, 57 by Robert), with the rarely encountered first state of the frontispiece to first volume, which was altered after a very few copies were issued -- see Cohn no. 820. Very good, light rubbing along joints, tiny chip to head of spine of third volume, odd whitening to the gilt work along spines -- treated with some anti-acidification product we suspect, but the old owner of these books is deceased so we are left in the dark. Good.
