        Meine Lebensschicksale als Vorsteher meiner Erziehungsinstitute in Burgdorf und Iferten.

      Leipzig, Fleischer, 1826.. Kl.-8°. 2 Bl., 251 S. Halblederband der Zeit mit Rückenschildchen und etwas Rückenvergoldung.. Erste Ausgabe der berühmten, selbstkritischen Lebensbeichte Pestalozzis und zugleich sein letztes zu Lebzeiten erschienenes Werk. - Sgl. Borst 1504; Goed. VII 611,5. - Die im Titel genannten und von Pestalozzi ins Leben gerufenen "Erziehungsinstitute in Burgdorf und Iferten" stehen im gleichen Maße für seinen Ruf als großer, prägender Pädagoge als auch für das Scheitern seiner neuartigen Ansätze in der praktischen Wirklichkeit. Die Lehranstalt auf dem Burgdorfer Schloß, gegründet 1800, genoß schon nach kurzer Zeit dank der dort von ihm konzipierten Elementarmethode internationale Reputation. Bereits 1804 mußte das Institut schließen, weil der Kanton Bern das Schloß für sich beanspruchte. Yverdon (Iferten) sollte letzte Bleibe sein. Das große Ansehen, das sich Pestalozzi aufgrund seiner pädagogischen Tätigkeiten auch hier erwarb, konnte aber die Schließung auch dieser Erziehungsanstalt nicht verhindern, die sich als Folge der zunehmenden Spannungen zwischen den Lehrkräften und ihrer zum Teil eigenen Interpretation der Lehre Pestalozzis ergab. In der Vorrede begründet Pestalozzi seine folgenden Ausführungen: "...Ich bin durch die Folgen meiner Widerwärtigkeiten endlich dahin gebracht worden, meine Anstalten, auf deren Erfolg ich immer noch hoffte, so viel als gänzlich auflösen zu müssen. Ich darf gegenwärtig über die Ursachen meines diesfälligen Schicksals durchaus nicht mehr das Stillschweigen fortsetzen, das ich bisher darüber beobachtete. Es ist meine Pflicht über diesen Gegenstand öffentlich helles Licht zu verbreiten...". Das vorliegende Buch, in dem Pestalozzi schwere Vorwürfe gegen sich, aber auch gegen seine Wegbegleiter erhebt, wurde von Cotta, dem eigentlichen Verleger Pestalozzis, als zu persönlich und nicht mit der lehre in direktem Zusammenhang stehend, abgelehnt und erschien deswegen bei Gerhard Fleischer in Leipzig. - Vorderes Gelenk aufgeplatzt; Rückenbezug mit kleineren Fehlstellen; Rückenschildchen stellenweise abgeblättert; teils stärker beschabt und bestoßen. Gebräunt und stellenweise fleckig.

        An Account of some Geological Specimens from the Coasts of Australia

      London: W. Clowes, 1826. Slim octavo, [iv], 64 pp., with three aquatints and an impressive folding map of the coastline of north and western Australia; intermittent foxing, very good in recent polished half calf. Scarce paper concerning the mineral specimens collected during the north Australian voyage of Philip Parker King, with three aquatints from the Narrative of a Survey of the Intertropical and Western Coasts of Australia bound in. The paper also examines geological materials collected by Robert Brown during the Investigator voyage of Matthew Flinders, and makes frequent reference to the writings of François Péron relating to Australian minerals. The text reveals a comfortable familiarity with Australian minerals held in European collections including the cabinets at the Jardin du Roi and the Hospice at Nice. In treating Australian landscape geology, Fitton refers to a wide range of source materials including the voyage publications of Vancouver, d'Entrecasteaux, Peron, Freycinet and Duperrey. Fitton's paper was part of a larger project of study and comparison of the Australian specimens that came back from the voyage. As King notes in the Narrative, 'The specimens mentioned in the following list have been compared with some of those in England and other countries, principally in the cabinets of the Geological Society, and of Mr. Greenough; and with a collection from part of the confines of the primitive tracts of England and North Wales, formed by Mr. Arthur Aikin…'. The paper was read before the Geological Society in November 1825 and published in the proceedings of the society the following year. This separately issued imprint with new title-page was embellished with three of the aquatint plates prepared for Murray's edition of King's Narrative.

        Sur l'identité des deux espèces nominales d'Ornithorhynque ; (Lu à l'Académie des Sciences le 18 décembre 1826)

      Paris: Annales des Sciences Naturelles, December, 1826. 12 pp., caption-title; in fine condition, tipped in to a modern binding of quarter linen and boards. Very rare separately printed work on the platypus. The renowned French zoologist Étienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire on the platypus: an important study, read to the Académie des Sciences and set up in print for publication in the appropriate learned journal. This is a very rare separate offprint (paginated 1 to 8 for separate issue rather than simply being clipped from its journal version). Saint-Hilaire here discusses research into the platypus made possible by the delivery of a brace of the monotremes by Hyacinthe de Bougainville, commander of the Thétis expedition just returned to Paris from the southern ocean. He discusses work by Shaw in England, reports by Péron from the Baudin expedition, and work by other eminent naturalists in Europe. The second half of the text is the most controversial, occupied by vigorous debate about ideas promulgated by the German naturalist Meckel in his ground-breaking Ornithorhynchi Paradoxi published just weeks previously. Meckel's first full separate study of the animal concentrated on the animal's reproductive system and especially the mammary glands of the female. Saint-Hilaire objected strenuously to this approach, asserting that the relevant glands were in fact odoriferous and designed only to attract a mate. Saint-Hilaire was, of course, plain wrong, but that didn't become clear for decades. Meanwhile in the furious debates about the classification of the platypus of the 1820s and 1830s, Saint-Hilaire occupied centre-stage. (Five years ago we handled the sale of a collection of his manuscript drafts and notes on the subject, which showed just how controversial the whole subject became). It was Saint-Hilaire himself who had coined the term "Monotremata" as early as 1803. He had been appointed professor of quadrupeds, cetaceans, birds, reptiles and fish at the Musée d'Histoire Naturelle in 1793 at the young age of twenty-one. He travelled with Napoleon's campaign to Egypt, but it was his long study of the museum's mammalian collection that made him famous, and led to comparisons with Cuvier (although the two men fell out in 1829). During his tenure he published a series of articles and monographs on the platypus, stubbornly holding that it must be a vertebrate, and refusing to believe that it could possibly be a mammal.

        An Essay on the Principle of Population ; or, a View of its Past and Present Effects on Human Happiness... Sixth Edition

      London: John Murray, 1826. Two volumes, octavo, a handsome set, with the bookplates of J.W. Middleton Berry, in nineteenth-century polished calf, spines banded and gilt, double red morocco labels. An extremely good copy of the last lifetime edition, the sixth edition (which also reprints his prefaces to the second and fifth editions, as well as the new one for this edition dated 2 January 1826). Malthus famously continued to revise this work throughout his life, continually updating on the basis of the latest information: the second 'Great Quarto' edition, for example, was the first to include new and substantial sections on Australia and the South Seas (based on the accounts of great voyagers such as Cook, Vancouver and Bougainville, and also David Collins' Account of the English Colony in New South Wales). The Essay on the Principle of Population was where Malthus most fully developed his thesis on the complex relationship between population growth and food supply, and is still one of the most influential and debated philosophical treatises. The section of main interest to Australia is the ominously titled 'Of the Checks to Population in the lowest Stage of Human Society'. Here, Malthus makes an aside on Van Diemen's Land, before commenting on 'the inhabitants of New Holland', which he describes at some length via a reading of the first volume of Collins' account of New South Wales, published in 1798. His theories on the Pacific including Australia and New Zealand, are more fully expounded in a chapter 'Of the Checks to Population in the Islands of the South Seas'. Malthus shows his familiarity with works like the voyage of Bougainville or the compendium of De Brosses, but this section is evidently founded in his careful study of the official accounts of all of Captain Cook's voyages. Thus, there is a particularly strong section on conditions in New Zealand, a major destination for Cook on all three voyages. There are also notes on Hawaii, derived from the voyage accounts of Cook and Vancouver.

        Monument élevé à la mémoire de la Pérouse

      Paris 1826 - Lithograph, 190 x 280 mm.; very good, mounted. The Sydney La Perouse monument. A fine view of the La Pérouse monument, built in Sydney to honour the great French explorer during the visit of the Thétis under Hyacinthe de Bougainville in 1825. The building of the monument showed a suitable piety from the French explorers nearly forty years after La Pérouse's disappearance, and especially from Hyacinthe de Bougainville himself, heir to a great French naval tradition as the grandson of Louis de Bougainville, the first French circumnavigator. Edmond de la Touanne, who prepared this fine lithograph view of the monument, was a friend and protégé of Bougainville and sailed on the expedition as lieutenant de vaisseau. Because of the haste with which the expedition was manned, no official artist was sent; as Bougainville remarks, no pictorial record of the expedition would have survived but for de la Touanne's sketches, which were published as lithographs in the official record of the expedition and in de la Touanne's own album. La Pérouse had sailed towards Australia at the beginning of 1788; his expedition had been at sea exploring the central Pacific, but his main instructions were to make for Australian waters to check on English activity in the region. Australia was a prize, and the French were as keen as the English to claim it. On 24 January they reached Botany Bay to find the ships of the First Fleet at anchor in the harbour. The French ships spent over six weeks in Botany Bay, and thus witnessed the English move to Port Jackson and the beginnings of the fledgling settlement there. In fact the last white people to see the French expedition before it vanished in the Pacific were the first Australian settlers. France lost its most important explorer of the eighteenth century, and the nation mourned this loss for over forty years.

        Scenery of the Rhine, Belgium and Holland from Drawings by Captain Batty of the Grenadier Guards, F.R.S

      London: Robert Jennings,, 1826. Quarto (269 × 180 mm). Contemporary dark green half straight-grain morocco on drab boards, title gilt direct, low bands with double gilt fillet, attractive floral lozenge to the compartments, single gilt rule to spine and corner edges, top edge gilt, drab endpapers. High quality steel-engraved title page with vignette view, and 61 similar plates, town crests to text, original tissue-guards, half-title bound in. Text in English and French. A little rubbed, some foxing and browning throughout, occasional off-setting from the plates, minor hygroscopic damping at the head of the gutter, quite heavy in the last plate, but remains very good, and attractive. First edition. Attractive series of views on the Rhine, Maine and Neckar, and on a tour through the Low Countries. Batty served with his regiment in the latter stages of the Peninsular War - blockade of Bayonne - and in Wellington's campaign in the Netherlands - Quatre Bras, and at Waterloo, La Haye Sainte and the advance on the Imperial Guard - subsequently he was in Paris during the occupation. He seems to have spent little time with the Guards after their return from France, and as "a talented amateur artist" (Bryan) produced a series of illustrated topographical books, he also illustrated his father-in-law John Barrow's A Family Tour through South Holland, up the Rhine and across the Netherlands (1831), which tour was likely the source for the drawings for these plates. Attractive circular presentation label to the front pastedown recording the gift of the book to Augusta Thornton from Mrs. Eliza Ford of Clifton in 1848.

        The English Portion of the Library of the Ven. Francis Wrangham, M.A. F.R.S. Archdeacon of Cleveland

      1826. Malton, printed by R. Smithson, Jun. bookseller and stationer, in Yorkersgate, 1826. x,645pp. Uncut & unopened. Orbds. (rebacked & bds. dustsoiled). (some light foxing throughout). Francis Wrangham (1769-1842) assembled a library that contained over 14000 volumes. An exceptional library because he preferred an obscure book, which for one reason or another was (and must always remain) very hard to find, to a notorious high-spot which - though also of great rarity - could be relied upon to head the bill in any auction or catalogue. He was the sort of bibliophile who loved to choose his own quarry and hunt it; and he measured the value of his library, not by the total of its current prices or by its place in competition with those of his book-collecting contemporaries, but by the number of ingenious discoveries and lucky captures which he himself knew that it contained. This catalogue was printed in 1826 in 70 copies but no fewer than 51 copies were still in folded sheets when Wrangham's library was sold by Mr. Leigh Sotheby in two ten-day sales in July and November-December 1843. The first sale comprised 2,669 lots and the second 3,089. Most descriptions in this catalogue have extensive notes and the preface written by Wranham is on his collection. (cf. M. Sadleir, Archdeacon Francis Wrangham 1769-1842. Oxford Bibl. Soc., 1937).

        Medal for the departure of the first voyage of the Astrolabe

      Depaulis, Paris 1826 - Bronze medal, 50 mm., extremely fine. Rare original medallion commemorating the departure on 25 April 1826 of the first voyage of the Astrolabe to the South Seas, under the command of Dumont d'Urville. The Astrolabe (Duperrey's old ship the Coquille renamed in honour of La Pérouse) was instructed to explore the principal island groups in the South Pacific, completing the work of the Duperrey voyage, on which the commander had been a naturalist. The expedition sailed via the Cape of Good Hope, through Bass Strait, stopped at Port Phillip, and arrived at Sydney on 1 December 1828. They later sailed via the northwest coast of Australia to Tasmania, from where they proceeded to Vanikoro in search of traces of La Pérouse. The full inscription on the reverse reads: "S.A.R. Monseigneur Le Dauphin, Amiral de France. M. Le Cte Chabrol de Crouzol, Pair de France, Ministre de la Marine. M. Dumont D'Urville, Captaine de Fregate, commandant ''Expedition"

Halliday was the royal physician to King William IV and to Queen Victoria. Before and after his military service he publicised the deplorable state of British and Irish insane asylums. He wrote History of the House of Hanover and Account of the West India Islands, published in 1826 and 1837, respectively. Condition: In publisher's original binding with paper cover boards.

      , 1826 1826. [in the original boards] A Narrative of 1757. By the Author of "The Spy," "The Pilot," "The Pioneers," &c. &c. In Three Volumes. London: John Miller, 1826. Original drab paper-covered boards with brown paper spines and printed labels. First English Edition, published in three volumes just two months after the two-volume Philadelphia edition. This is the novel for which Cooper is best known today: THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS was the second-published of the five "Leather-Stocking Tales," (the series name derived from the nickname of the hero, Natty Bumppo, so-called because of his long deerskin leggings). The first of the five to be published had been THE PIONEERS, in 1823; however, their sequence in terms of plot is THE DEERSLAYER, THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS, THE PATHFINDER, THE PIONEERS and THE PRAIRIE. The hero, known by the name "Hawk-eye" in this novel, "is shown as a young man approaching the zenith of his skill as a wilderness hunter and scout during the French and Indian Wars. In this best known novel of the saga, Natty as Hawk-eye develops into the epic hero of American literature." [UVa]~These volumes, remarkably, are still uncut in their original boards-and-label binding (which was meant to be temporary); at some point (apparently long ago) the outer joints were aptly restored, as is typically necessary for such fragile bindings. Otherwise the volumes show only minor edge-wear, and the labels are nearly complete. The first and third volumes are lacking the front free endpaper; the half-title is present only in the second and third volumes, because none was originally provided for the first volume. The leaves are unusually free of foxing for paper approaching its 200th year. At the top of each front cover and on the front paste-down of Vol. I is the signature of [Baron] Charles de Nagell (Peerage # 335169), probably the initial owner. See Blanck 3833 (saying that the American edition came out in January and the English in March, noting their sources); UVa (Barrett) 6 (this English edition is noted but is not listed in detail, though the American and French editions are; UVa says that the English edition came out six months after the American edition, but without noting reasons for that statement); Spiller & Blackburn p. 44.

      Corby, Paris, France 1826 - small 8vo. contemporary quarter leather, marbled paper-covered boards, five false raised bands. (iv),xii,528; (iv),529-1127 pages, with one foldout. 2 Volumes. First edition (Bigmore & Wyman, II-201). Licensing, copyright, censorship, the "public order," and so on. The years following the end of the Napoleonic Wars were generally not a good time in Europe for promoting freedom of the press, and printers, booksellers and others undoubtedly had need of such books as this compilation by the jurist F.A. Pic in order to know what they could and couldn't do. In four main parts: Laws prior to 1789, newer laws pertaining to printing and bookselling, newer laws concerning the press and "other means of publication," and the texts of "dispositions législatives" for bookselling, printing and freedom of the press together with selections from legislative reports and discussions relative to the passage of nine specific laws from 1814 to 1822. Since these nine laws dealt largely with freedom of the press (or its suppression), persons interested in censorship in the 19th century will find this interesting. The texts and discussions for laws actually comprise over two-thirds of the book. The foldout is a table on laws relating to export and import of books. Covers rubbed and scuffed, mostly at edges. Light foxing scattered through text. contemporary quarter leather, marbled paper-covered boards, five false raised bands [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Bestimmung des Gesetzes.

      Expedition des Vereins, Halle 1826 - Announcing a Comprehensive Law for Electric CurrentOhm, Georg Simon (1789-1854). Bestimmung des Gesetzes, nach welchem Metalle die Contaktelectricitat leiten, nebst einem Entwurf zu einer Theorie des Voltaischen Apparates und des Schweiggerschen Multiplicators. In Jahrb. d. Chemie u. Physik 16 (1826): 137-66, plus plate figures 1-2 on plate III. Whole volume, 8vo. xvi, 496pp.2 folding printed charts, 3 folding engraved plates. Halle: In der Expedition des Vereins zur Verbreitung von Naturkenntniss, 1826. 201 x 122 mm. Half sheep c. 1826, a bit rubbed, light wear to corners & edges. Minor foxing, otherwise very good. First Edition. Ohm began publishing his electricity researches in 1825 with his "Vorlaufige Anzeige des Gesetzes, nach welchem Metalle die Contaktelektricitat leiten," a paper in which he sought to find a functional relationship between the decrease in the electromagnetic force exerted by a current-carrying wire and the length of the wire. Although this paper contained some fundamental errors, it was remarkable for its direct foundation on experiment, a characteristic of all Ohm's early papers. In February and April of the following year Ohm published two important papers dealing separately with the two major aspects of his theory of galvanic electricity, which he would later unify in his landmark Die galvanische Kette (1827). The first paper, which we are offering here, "announced a comprehensive law for electric current that brought order into the hitherto confused collection of phenomena pertaining to the closed circuit, including the solution to the problem of conductibility as he and others had conceived of it" (DSB). Ohm's second paper, "Versuch einer Theorie der durch galvanische Krafte hervorgebrachten elektroskopischen Erscheinungen" (Ann. Phys. 6 [1826]: 459-69; 7, 45-54, 117-18), "broke new ground in associating an electric tension with both open and closed galvanic circuits" (DSB), and contained the first statement of Ohm's Law. "Ohm's experimental procedure in ["Bestimmung des Gesetzes"] was analogous to that which he had used earlier but was modified in several significant ways. First, at Poggendorff's suggestion, he now used a thermoelectric pile in order to eliminate the fluctuations in current strength accompanying the voltaic pile, fluctuations that Ohm attributed to changes produced by the current in the distribution (Vertheilung) of the components in the liquid conductor. Second, he sought a direct relationship between the electromagnetic force of the current and the entire length of the connecting wire. . . . "[I]n the paper in question Ohm simply observed that the data from each of his several sets of experiments were very closely represented by the formula X = a/(b + x), where X is the strength of the electromagnetic effect-which he took as a measure of the electric current-of a conductor of length x on the magnetic needle of a Coulomb torsion balance, and where a and b are constants the exact nature of which he proposed to determine from additional series of carefully controlled experiments. The observation that b remained constant for all series of experiments, whereas a varied with temperature, led Ohm to conclude that a depended solely on the electromotive force (erregende Kraft) of the pile and b solely on the resistance (Leitungswiderstand or, more commonly, Widerstandslange) of the remaining portion of the circuit, in particular that of the pile itself. He also observed that the electromotive force of the thermoelectric pile appeared to be exactly proportional to the temperature difference at its end points. . . . " "After reconfirming the validity of his law by further series of experiments, Ohm exhibited its explanatory powers on some of the chief unsolved problems which had occupied scientists working on the pile; and he showed how it also cast light on a number of other previously reported but poorly understood experimental findings. . . . The fruitful application of Ohm's simple l [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Lives of the Right Honourable Francis North,

      London - Henry Colburn, 1826. London - Henry Colburn, 1826 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A relatively scarce three volume edition of the Lives of Francis North, Sir Dudley North and Dr. John North, written by Roger North. Illustrated with three frontispiece plates,a portrait of Francis North tofirst volume and of Sir Dudley North to second volume and Roger North tothird volume. A new edition with notes and illustrations, historical and biographical. In three volumes complete. Francis North, 1st Baron Guilford PC KC (1637 - 1685) was the third son of the 4th Baron North, and was created Baron Guilford in 1683, after becoming Lord Keeper of the Great Seal in succession to Lord Nottingham. He had been an eminent lawyer, Solicitor-General (1671), Attorney-General (1673), and Chief Justice of the Common Pleas (1675), and in 1679 was made a member of the Council of Thirty and on its dissolution of the Cabinet. He was a man of wide culture and a staunch royalist. Dudley North, 4th Baron North K. B. (1602 - 1677) was an English politician who sat in the House of Commons at various times between 1628 and 1660. North was an accomplished man, of studious bent, and wrote on economics and religious subjects. John North (1645 - 1683) was professor of Greek at the University of Cambridge from 1672 to 1674, and Master of Trinity College, Cambridge from 1677 to 1683. Made Clerk of the Closet in 1673, he was a prebend of Westminster from 1673 to 1683 and chaplain to the King from 1676 to 1683. He was Master of Trinity from 1677 to 1683. With plate for 'Earl of Guildford, Wroxton Abbey'tipped in to front pastedown and previous owner's ink inscription dated 1929also stating 'Wroxton Abbey' to front blank to first volume. Wroxton Abbey is a Jacobean house in Oxfordshire,named for its 12th-century origins as a monastery that fell into disrepair after Henry VIII's 1536 dissolution. Remnants of that structure remain in the basement beams, though the building literally rose from the ruins when rebuilt by William Pope in the early 17th century and added to for several centuries after that as the property passed from the Popes to the Norths in 1677. Condition: In calf bindings. Externally, sound but with some wear to extremities, fading, rubbing and marks to boards, loss to somespine labels, absent to third volume,and backstrips lifting slightly in places. Internally, firmly bound. Generally bright and clean throughout but with the occasional handling mark and slight foxing to plates. Overall: GOOD.
