      London: John Murray, 1826. First edition. With 34 fine engraved plates, one of which is hand-colored, 3 sketch maps, 6 engraved vignettes and large folding map of the route. 4to, full contemporary diced calf with blind rolled borders to the coverss, the spine sometime expertly restored preserving most of the original backing which features large central gilt tools in between multi-ruled gilt bands, one compartment with a red morocco label lettered and ruled in gilt, gilt tooled turn-ins xlviii, 335, 269, plates, map and list of illustrations. A fine and handsome copy, internally fresh and clean, plates in fine order with less then typical offsetting, folding map near and with no wear and just a bit of spotting, all very sturdy and solid, binding with restoration and other evidence of age but very handsome and proper. SCARCE AND IMPORTANT WORK. Denham and Clapperton, in the company of Dr. Walter Oudney, traveled from Benioleed, near Tripoli, almost due south to Lake Tchad, with excursions into the mountains west of Mourzuk in Fezzan. Dixon attempted to follow the circuit around Lake Tchad but was unsuccessful. In the meantime, Clapperton and Oudney journeyed west from the lake toward the Niger River, but the doctor only made it about a third of the way and died in Murmur. Clapperton continued west, but was prevented from passing beyond Sackatoo by the local Sultan. He and Denham subsequently returned to Tripoli and crossed back to England<br> This narrative is compiled primarily from Denham&#39;s journal, with a chapter by Dr. Oudney on the excursion to the mountains west of Mourzuk. A final section by Clapperton relates the westward journey from Lake Tchad to Sackatoo and includes an account of Oudney&#39;s death. Among the several appendices are translations from the Arabic of various letters and documents brought back by Denham and Clapperton, including a document relating to the death of Mungo Park; a translation from the Arabic of a geographical and historical account of the Kingdom of Tak-roor, from a larger work composed by Sultan Mohammed Bello of Hausa; vocabularies of Bornou, Begharmi, Mandara, and Timbuctoo; appendices on the zoology and botany of the regions based on samples collected by Dr. Oudney; a note on rock specimens; and a thermometrical journal kept at Kouka in Bornou.<br> The engravings, after drawings by Denham and Clapperton, are superbly engraved by Edward Finden, one of the finest steel-engravers in England at the time.

        Narrative of Travels and Discoveries in Northern and central Africa in the Years 1822, 1823, and 1824. Extending across the Great Desert to the Tenth Degree of Northern Latitude, and from Kouka in Bornou, to Sackatoo, the Capital of the Fellatah Empi

      John Murray, London 1826 - 4to - over 9" - 12" tall. Two volumes in one. lxvii, 335; 269 pp, complete with 38 engraved plates (1 colored) and maps (1 folding), 6 wood-engraved vignettes in the text. Rebound in red buckram with leather spine label, date erroneously printed as 1836 at foot. Occasional minor foxing and offsetting, one closed tear to map.In hopes of tracing the course of the Niger River, Denham's expedition crossed the desert along the long-established Sahara trade route to the kingdom of Bornu (later Nigeria), a route littered with the skeletons of thousands of slaves abandoned there over the centuries. They sighted Lake Chad and reached the capital of Bornu, where they were welcomed by a spectacular array of some five thousand horsemen sent by the Muslim prophet who ruled Bornu in the king's name. Though delighted to meet them, he refused to let them continue their explorations, lest they meet some misadventure for which he would be blamed. Ultimately, the expedition returned to England having failed to find the Niger, but having opened much of north central Africa to European knowledge. Written in a lively style, and embellished with engravings of Denham's own sketches, this account became one of the classics of its genre (DNB). Denham was later appointed lieutenant-governor of the colony of Sierra Leone, where he died of the African fever in 1828. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        An Inquiry into the Origin of the Laws and Political Institutions of.

      1826 - A "Learned" Study of the Origins of Modern Anglo-European Law Spence, George [1787-1850]. An Inquiry into the Origin of the Laws and Political Institutions of Modern Europe, Particularly Those of England. London: John Murray, 1826. xxxvi, 600 pp. Octavo (9" x 5-1/2"). Recent period-style quarter calf over cloth, gilt fillets and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed, untrimmed edges. Clean tear to fore-edge of a leaf mended with archival tape. Light foxing to a few leaves, interior otherwise fresh. Ex-institutional library. Small inkstamp to title page, another to a text leaf. A handsome copy of an uncommon title. * Only edition. This book is mentioned by Holdsworth, who deems it a "learned book." According to Spence's preface, his work on the translation of the Code Napoleon led him to "look attentively into the civil law of the Romans, where he found that a great proportion of the doctrines of the common law of England, even many of those which are purely artificial, were to be found in the [Corpus Juris Civilis]. This induced him to study the civil and criminal code of the Romans with some minuteness, and to compare the political and judicial institutions of modern Europe, and of our own country in particular, with those of ancient Rome, in order to discover to what extent the former might be traced from the latter, their venerable and classical origins." (v). Spence was an English jurist and barrister of the Inner Temple. He was the author of several books, including a translation of the Code Napoleon and an important treatise on chancery law.

        Narrative of travels and discoveries in Northern and Central Africa, in the years 1822, 1823, and 1824 .. extending across the great desert to the tenth degree of Northern latitude, and from Kouka in Bornou, to Sackatoo, the capital of the Fellatah

      London: John Murray, 1826 xlviii+335 pages with frontispiece, and 35 plates which include one hand colored and one a fold out map; [2]+269 pages with 8 plates and appendix. Quarto (10 1/2" x 8 3/4") in original leather with gilt vignette to edges. New spine with raised bands and gilt lettering. 1st edition. Hugh Clapperton was born in Annan, Dumfriesshire, where his father was a surgeon. He gained some knowledge of practical mathematics and navigation, and at thirteen was apprenticed on board a vessel which traded between Liverpool and North America. After having made several voyages across the Atlantic Ocean, he was impressed for the navy, in which he soon rose to the rank of midshipman. During the Napoleonic Wars he saw a good deal of active service, and at the storming of Port Louis, Mauritius, in November 1810, he was first in the breach and hauled down the French flag. In 1814 he went to Canada, was promoted to the rank of lieutenant, and to the command of a schooner on the Canadian lakes. In 1817, when the flotilla on the lakes was dismantled, he returned home on half-pay. In 1820 Clapperton removed to Edinburgh, where he made the acquaintance of Walter Oudney, who aroused in him an interest in African travel. Lieutenant G. F. Lyon, having returned from an unsuccessful attempt to reach Bornu from Tripoli, the British government determined on a second expedition to that country. Walter Oudney was appointed by Lord Bathurst, then colonial secretary, to proceed to Bornu as consul and Hugh Clapperton and Dixon Denham were added to the party. From Tripoli, early in 1822, they set out southward to Murzuk, and from this point Clapperton and Oudney visited the Ghat oasis. Kuka, of Bornu, was reached in February 17, 1823, and Lake Chad seen for the first time by Europeans. At Bornu the travellers were well received by the sultan; and after remaining in the country until December 14 they again set out for the purpose of exploring the course of the Niger. At Murmur, on the road to Kano, Oudney died (January 1824). Clapperton continued his journey alone through Kano to Sokoto, the capital of the Fula Empire, where by order of Sultan Bello he was obliged to stop, though the Niger was only five days' journey to the west. Worn out with his travel he returned by way of Zaria and Katsina to Kuka, where he again met Denham. The two travellers then set out, for Tripoli, reached on the January 26, 1825. An account of the travels was published in under the title of Narrative of Travels and Discoveries in Northern and Central Africa in the years 1822 - 1823 and 1824 (1826). Immediately after his return Clapperton was raised to the rank of commander, and sent out with another expedition to Africa, the sultan Bello of Sokoto having professed his eagerness to open up trade with the west coast. Clapperton landed at Badagry in the Bight of Benin, and started overland for the Niger on the December 7 1825, having with him his servant Richard Lemon Lander, Captain Pearce, and Dr. Morrison, navy surgeon and naturalist. Before the month was out Pearce and Morrison were dead of fever. Clapperton continued his journey, and, passing through the Yoruba country, in January 1826 he crossed the Niger at Bussa, the spot where Mungo Park had died twenty years before. In July he arrived at Kano. Thence he went to Sokoto, intending afterwards to go to Bornu. The sultan, however, detained him, and being seized with dysentery he died near Sokoto. Clapperton was the first European to make known from personal observation the Hausa states, which he visited soon after the establishment of the Sokoto Empire by the Fula. In 1829 appeared the Journal of a Second Expedition into the Interior of Africa, &c., by the late Clapperton, to which was prefaced a biographical sketch of the explorer by his uncle, Lieut.-colonel S. Clapperton. Richard Lemon Lander, who had brought back the journal of his master, also published Records of Captain Clapperton's Last Expedition to Africa . . . with the subsequent Adventures of the Author (2 volumes, London, 1830). Description: Stains to cover, some foxing to pages without tissued between plates, repair to fold out map at gutter. Internally a very good copy.. First Edition. Full-Leather. Very Good. Quarto.

        Voyage autour du monde, exécuté par ordre du Roi, sur la corvette de Sa Majesté, La Coquille, pendant les années 1822, 1823, 1824 et 1825. ZOOLOGIE par Lesson et Garnot.

      Paris, A. Bertrand, 1826-1830. 4 text volumes (bound in 2). Large 4to (295 x 225mm) and 1 folio atlas (492 x 315mm), with 157 (2 plain) beautifully colour-printed engraved plates, finished by hand. Contemporary half calf, gilt lettered spines (one text volume recently bound to match, the remaining volumes a bit rubbed) . The complete zoological part of Duperrey's famous circumnavigation with the "Coquille". Louis-Isidore Duperrey (1786-1865) made his first voyage around the world with L. de Freycinet in 1817-1820. Already 2 years later he set sail on the "Coquille" with J.S.C. Dumont d'Urville as second in command. On this long voyage, an impressive array of geological, botanical and zoological specimens were collected, which were housed in the "Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle" after their return in Marseille in 1825. On board the well-known French pharmacist and ornithologist R. Lesson served as naturalist and surgeon. The large collections and exhaustive zoological descriptions (especially regarding the birds) were made by him, together with P. Garnot and F.E. Guérin-Méneville. Of the beautiful 157 plates, 44 depict birds (of which many were new to science), 38 fishes, 9 mammals, 7 reptiles, 16 molluscs, 16 zoophytes, 5 crustaceans, and 22 insects. All are very finely colour-printed (many finished by hand) after drawings by J.G. Prêtre, R.P. Lesson, Bévalet, Prévost, and a few others. /"The aims of the expedition, it will be remembered, had been largely scientific and Duperrey had well carried out his instructions in this respect... The geologists thanked Lesson especially for the 300 samples of rock he had brought back. D'Urville was praised for his botanical work, and the Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle received with gratitude 1,200 insects, 450 of which had not been available before, most of them collected by d'Urville. There were in addition 264 birds and quadrupeds, 63 reptiles, and 288 fishes, more than 80 of them new specimens (Dunmore II, pp. 152-153).//The work is usually found with some foxing. In our copy about one third of the plates have been more or less seriously affected. //Fine Bird Books 73; Nissen ZBI, 1210 & IVB, 280; Wood 327; B.M.(N.H.) II, 604.

Das Handbuch blieb unvollendet. Behandelt wird die Zeugung, das embryonale Leben, die Geburt, der Verlauf des Lebens bis zum Tode und die vegetativen Aspekte des Lebens. - "Friedrich Burdach (1776-1847, Prof. in Königsberg)., in dessen frühesten Arbeiten sich der spekulative Charakter (in dem Spiele mit den Begriffen von Rezeptivität und Spontaneität, von positivem und negativem Pol u.s.w.) ausspricht, während die spätere in großartigem Maßstabe angelegte, und mit Beiträgen von Karl Ernst von Baer, Heinrich Rathke, Johannes Müller, Siebold, Gustav Valentin, Johann Friedrich Dieffenbach, Rudolph Wagener u.a. versehene 'Physiologie als Erfahrungswissenschaft', der naturphilosophischen Phrasen entkleidet, eine durchaus geschmackvolle und in streng naturwissenschaftlichem Geiste bearbeitete Schrift darstellt. (.) In dem Eingange zum ersten Teile dieser Schrift erklärt Burdach, er wolle die Physiologie nicht analytisch, sondern synthetisch bearbeiten, d.h. die Erscheinungen des Lebens nicht aus den Begriffen entwickeln, sondern den Begriff durch sorgliche Prüfung der Erscheinungen feststellen". Hirsch, Gesch. Med.410f. - "Burdach gilt als der erste, der die Gesamtheit der Einzelwissenschaften von den Lebenserscheinungen des Menschen (Morphologie, Physiologie, Psychologie) als "BIOLOGIE" bezeichnete. In seiner 'Propädeutik zum Studium der gesamten Heilkunst' - im 'Leitfaden akademischer Vorlesungen' heißt es: "Diese Kenntnisse können unter dem Namen der Biologie oder Lebenslehre des Menschen begriffen werden". Ilse Jahn, Geschichte der Biologie, p.320f. So wurde "das Wort 'Morphologie' zum ersten Mal im Jahre 1800 von Karl Friedrich Burdach (1776-1847) gebraucht." (Günther Schmid, Goethe.). - "First edition of the greatest text-book on physiology in the German language with contributions of the most famous physiologists of the period." - - "Volume I and II had indirectly a profound influence on the development of modern embryology. Karl Ernst von Baer, the chief founder of comparative embryology, here provides an entire treatise on the formation of the embryo." "The famous hand-coloured plates showing the development of the embryo accompanying Baer's classic 'Entwickelungsgeschichte' thus first appeared in Burdach's 'Physiologie'." Ove Hagelin, The Womans Booke (Cat. of rare books, Swed. Soc. Med.), pp.145 f. - Karl Ernst v. Baer berichtete über seine Entdeckung: "Ich sprach im April oder in den ersten Tagen des Mai (1827) mit Burdach darüber, daß ich gar nicht mehr im Zweifel sein könne, die Eier des Säugetiers kämen fertigt gebildet aus dem Eierstock, und daß ich sehr wünschte, eine Hündin zu erhalten, die erst vor ein paar Tagen sich belaufen habe. Zufällig besaß Burdach im eigenen Hause eine solche Hündin. Sie wurde geopfert. Als ich sie öffnete, fand ich einige Graafsche Bläschen geborsten, keine dem Bersten sehr nahe. Indem ich niedergeschlagen, daß die Hoffnung wieder nicht erfüllt sei, den Eierstock betrachtete, bemerkte ich ein gelbes Bläschen und hob vorsichtig das Fleckchen mit dem Messer in ein mit Wasser gefülltes Uhrglas, das ich unter das Mikroskop brachte. Als ich in dieses einen Blick geworfen hatte, fuhr ich, wie vom Blitz getroffen zurück, denn ich sah deutlich eine sehr kleine , scharf ausgebildete Dotterkugel. Ich hatte nicht gedacht, daß der Inhalt des Eies der Säugetiere dem Dotter der Vögel so ähnlich sehen würde. Das ursprüngliche Ei des Hundes war also gefunden".

Pioneering study of &#145;diphtheria&#146; and other inflammations of the mucous tissue, based on the epidemic of 1818. Bretonneau (1778-1862), head physician at Tours hospital, also describes what is believed to be the first successful tracheotomy, preventing asphyxiation in a patient suffering from croup (pp 300-308). He had already differentiated typhoid fever in 1819 under the name dothinentérie, and in this work he individualizes and names diphthéritis (diphtheria), showing that a number of conditions previously thought to be separate illnesses - such as croup, malignant angina and scorbutic gangrene - were in fact the same disease.

        Ansichten Auf Einer Reise Nach Holland Und Paris, 1826; Original Travel Book with Original Water Color Paintings

      1826. 19 (4 5/8" x 7") full page or (4 5/8" x 15") double-paged watercolor paintings of Germany and Holland and a basic pencil sketch of the tomb of Massena in Paris and a few smaller preliminary sketches. Baron Christian Von Hayn was in the Palatinate and in 1845 purchased a large manor in Dambach from Andreas Brenner in Thannhausen. In 1868 he later noted that this was roughly a trip around the old parts of the Hanseatic League. Most paintings are identified in upper right hand corner (e.g., the Castle (Schoss) Johannisberg), other areas are the outskirts of Weisbaden, Emmerich (?), Schenkenschanz on the Rhein, The Toll House at Bruckhausen, The Petro Mango Alexander (the cabin of Peter the Great at Zaandam which Napoleon called "the finest monument in Holland"), Schoeningen (apparently out of place in order of trip), a recreation of when Wellington and Blucher met at Waterloo and [La] Belle Alliance was created on June 18, 1815 where there are several paintings. There is a pencil sketch of a man attempting to embrace a woman and she appears to be rather warning instead of condemning his advance. Several pages in ink note the major marshals of Napoleon&#39;s army suggesting he was making a tour of historical points of interest just a decade after his defeat (thus, the pencil sketch of Massena&#39;s tomb). .

        The History of the Rebellion and Civil War in England, to Which Is Added an Historical View of the Affairs of Ireland (8 Volume Set)

      Oxford, Clarendon Press 1826 - 8 volume set. Fine bindings. Handsome, contemporary calf bindings. Spines are profusely decorated with gilt.Red and gold spine labels and numbers. Spine heads and tails chipped. Binding professionally restored. A lovely set. Oxford, Clarendon Press, 1826-1827. Contemporary owner's armorial book plate, Lewis Kingsbury Conant - Stonehenge on front paste down. Lewis Conant was in the Harvard class of 1899. The History of the Rebellion and Civil Wars in Englands a work begun in exile during the late 1640s and was revised and completed in renewed exile after Clarendon?s fall from royal favour in 1667. Clarendon was a close adviser to two kings, and his intimacy with many of the key events is unrivaled. Though his narrative is inevitably partisan, the ambitious range of his analysis and his mastery of character portraiture make the History an extraordinary accomplishment. Almost fifty years later, Clarendon's great-grandson presented his papers and manuscripts to Oxford University on the understanding that all profits from the copyright of the History were to be used to finance buildings for the University press. This is an oversized or heavy book that requires additional postage for international delivery outside of Canada and the US. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        American Bible Printed in Spanish: La Biblia Sagrada, a saber: El Antiguo y el Nuevo Testamento, traducidos de la Vulgata Latina en espanol

      New York:: Edicion Estereotipica por A. Chandler,. 1826.. Nueva edition. Hardcover. Very good overall. A scarce American Bible printed in Spanish, the personal copy of Ebenezer Nye (1799 - 1891), ship&#39;s captain from Sandwich Massachusetts, who was the master of the brig Cicero when it sailed on a trading voyage from New York to Maracaibo, Venezuela. The Mystic Seaport at Connecticut owns Captain Nye&#39;s journal from this voyage which "Mentions shipboard routine, and navigational information. Cicero was driven ashore and wrecked while approaching Maracaibo. The crew fought off Indians and salvaged part of the cargo. (Nye then spent 4 months in Bogata, returning to Maracaibo in November 1827.)" The front free end paper has Nye&#39;s signature, and below it, "Maracaibo, 22 July 1827", which suggests that this Bible may have been acquired in gratitude for surviving the shipwreck and subsequent attack. The August 11, 1891 obituary in the Sandwich Observer notes that "Capt. Nye was a proficient scholar in all geographical, geometrical, mathematical and astronomical studies, and many of the younger navigators of the bay cruisers are graduates of his winter evening school he taught for their benefit. His observation of the planets on the bright starry evenings were ever a delight to the school teachers and scholars of his village, and writing up his surveys of harbors and rivers along our coast for "Blunt&#39;s American Coast Pilot", rendered him a proficient pilot for nearly every harbor along the entire length of our coast and the Gulf of Mexico." Nye&#39;s son Ebenezer F. Nye was also a ship&#39;s captain, master of the Mt. Wollaston, which disappeared in the Arctic.& & Secondary title: "Nueva Edition, a costa de la socieded Americana de la Biblia, conforme a la segunda, que revista y corregida publico su mismo traductor el ano de 1797 en Madrid.

        Portrait, Dupuytren bei einer Obduktion - Lithographie, 168 X 228 mm.

      . Von Louis-Thomas Bardel. Bezeichnet links unten: Bardel. 1826; rechts unten: Imp. par Bregeant.. "Der Oberkörper des männlichen Leichnams ist auf dem Sektionstisch hoch gelagert. Ein Instrument, ähnlich einer Kornzange, in der Linken, macht DUPUYTREN mit der Rechten eine erklärende Geste. Er trägt eine weiße Schürze wie auch der Gehilfe, der, ein Becken haltend, vor dem Sektionstisch kniet. - Da der Student am Fußende des Tisches das Skelett eines Beines vorweist, darf man annehmen, das DUPUYTRENS Ausführungen dem Bein gelten und speziell dem Oberschenkel. Im Jahre nach Entstehung dieser Lithographie hat er dann auch seine Abhandlung über die angeborenen Oberschenkelluxationen publiziert. - Cabanes war es, der das Blatt als Bildnis des DUPUYTREN veröffentlicht hat, was überzeugend ist. Den Lithographen nannte er dazu nicht. - Das Blatt ist selten und im Cabinet des Eestampes der Bibliotheque Nationale zu Paris in BARDELS Oeuvre nicht vorhanden."

        Tales of the Wild and Wonderful

      Philadelphia and New York: E. Little and G & Carvill, 1826. Hardcover. Very Good. Hardcover. First American edition. Attributed to Mary Diana Dods; but formerly attributed to George Borrow. Scottish author Mary Diana Dods (1790 - 1845) wrote under several aliases including David Lyndsay. A friend of Mary Shelley (author of Frankenstein), she was a frequent contributor to Blackwood&#39;s Edinburgh Magazine and is known best for her gothic tales. Due to her masculine pseudonyms, tendency to dress like a man, and sexual preferences, she is sadly now remembered more for her controversial identity rather than her work. Printed anonymously, this book includes five short stories: The Prediction, The Yellow Dwarf, Der Freischütz, The Fortunes of de la Pole, and The Lord of the Maelstrom. According to the Monthly Review (January 1826): "We have here not merely the long-drawn horrors of superstition. There are &#39;tales of faerie and magicke,&#39; full of prodigious wonderment and marvellous surprise, told &#39;with the tongue i&#39; the cheek,&#39; and with many a merry induction." Bound in contemporary three quarter leather binding with marbled paper boards, gilt title and gilt devices to spine. The front hinge is cracked, rear hinge is worn, and there is chipping to leather along spine. Rubbing to boards and minor wear to edges. Previous owner&#39;s name in pen to top edge of title page, foxing throughout, and occasional small spots of soiling. Marbled endpages. 252 pages.LIT/091014.

        Orizava

      - A very detailed hand tinted lithograph by Casimiro Castro (1826-1889) and J. Campillo (mid 19th century) illustrating aspects of rural and city life in Mexico from their sweeping book "Mexico y sus alrededores, colleccion de monumentos, trajes y paisajes.Mexico", which depicted the monuments, scenery and costumes of the day. Some of these views of the city of Mexico were taken from a balloon, and depicted the areas around the Alameda of Mexico. It was published in Mexico by Imprenta Lithographica de Decaen in 1864. This print measures 12.25" x 17.5". This book documents the late colonial, independence, and early national periods in Mexico&#151;from about 1730 to 1850. An examination of this "middle period" offers an explicit examination on rural history. Compared to city dwellers, rural Mexicans seldom felt governmental reforms or institutional changes immediately. As colonial land tenure patterns shaped Indian communities, continuity rather than change characterized life in the Toluca region until the Ley Lerdo, the desamortization law of 1856. During this period the vast majority of Mexicans lived in the countryside. "Mexico y sus alrededores, colleccion de monumentos, trajes y paisajes.Mexico" was dedicated to studying and illustrating both aspects of city and rural life during this period in Mexican History. Overall this print is in very good condition with some foxing, staining and creasing.
