        Journal Kept Aboard the U.S. Frigate Brandywine, Jacob Jones, Esq. Commander, May 2nd 1828 - October 8th 1829.

      Quarto, unpaginated. 300 pages followed by a dozen pages of log entries by other writers during other voyages. The final page of the Brandywine journal is an “An abstract taken from the Log between Sept 1826 and Oct. 1829.” Although the writer is unidentified, this is a typical midshipman’s journal with daily entries including courses steered, winds, weather observations, shifting of sails, the daily noon latitude by observation and dead reckoning, longitude by chronometer and dead reckoning, barometric pressure, temperature of both the air and water, and ship-board events such as mustering of the crew, courts-martial, deaths and burials - one murder and half a dozen "routine" deaths! - and ships sighted. Port entries include details on provisioning, ship repairs, names on the sick list, and visits by dignitaries and officers from other ships. The journal begins early May, 1828, as the ship departs Panama. The writer's tone is understated, but he records dramatic moments aboard ship. They were no more than two weeks at sea when a murder took place - "At 10 P.M. Christopher Garrison (Sea) while sleeping on the birth deck was wounded (as is supposed) by a 32 lb shot on his head of which he died on the afternoon of the 19th. Henry Lancy (Sea) was confined on the morning of the 18th on suspision of having committed the crime & on the afternoon of the 19th Wm. Strong (Sea) was confined on suspision of being accessory to the deed." Then, on 29 August, "At Meridian Henry Lancy was executed by hanging at the fore yard for the murder of Christopher Garrison." This is an excellent and detailed account of naval life at sea and in port. The Brandywine visited Panama, Payta (Peru), Callao, Valparaiso, and, during the return trip to the United States, Rio de Janeiro. Bound in full calf. Text shows some foxing and damp-stains. In a handsome contemporary leather carrying case.

        Cronica di Matteo Villani a Miglior Lezione Ridotta coll'auto de'testi a penna

      per Il Magheri, Florence 1826 - 6 vols. 8vo. Giovanni Villani (ca 1275-1348), the Florentine writer of the famous chronicles (the Cronica) is the greatest Italian chronicler of his own times and the cornerstone of the early medieval history of Florence. His interest in economic details makes him the most modern of the late medieval chroniclers. Villani's Chronicle was considered an important work at the time, valuable enough to be continued by two other members of his family. Matteo Villani, his brother, of whom nothing is known save that he was twice married and that he died of the plague in 1363, continued it down to the year of his death. Wordier and less acute as a human observer, Matteo is well informed in his facts and is one of the most important sources of Italian history. Bound in contemporary quarter polished brown calf and marbled boards, one title label missing, else fine. Bookplate of Byrdcliffe

        Delightful commemorative box made of bois durci (George Frideric, 1685-1759, German-British Baroque Composer)

      1826 - with a portrait of Handel in profile on the front surrounded by a tooled border and Victoria, the Goddess of Victory on the back, she is flying through the air holding a wand in her left hand and a sword in the other, 3 inches across and just under 1 inch deep, there is an inscription on the back which is nearly illegible but appears to date it to Bois Durci is one of the earliest Victorian plastic moulding materials and is based on cellulose. It was patented, in Paris in 1855, by Lepage. It is made from finely ground wood 'flour' mixed with a binder, either egg or blood albumen or gelatine. The wood is probably either ebony or rose wood, giving a black or brown result. The mixture is dried and ground to a fine powder. The powder is placed in a steel mould and compressed in a powerful hydraulic press whilst being heated by steam. The final product has a highly polished finish imparted by the surface of the steel mould. Some authorities state that Bois Durci went out of use by the late 1880s, but recent research show that it was still being produced under the 'Bois Durci' name even after the First World War. The natural materials were gradually replaced by synthetic resins over a long period. There are many different products made with this material.

        The Last Man

      London: Henry Colburn, 1826, 1826. FIRST EDITION. 3 vols., 8" x 5", entirely uncut as issued, staining to a section of foredge of the first and last leaves of volume three otherwise clean and bright throughout. Bound in somewhat recent 1/2 tan calf, marbled boards, two gilt lettered blue morocco spine labels. "The Last Man" is a post-apocalyptic science fiction novel by Mary Shelley, which was first published in 1826. The book tells of a future world that has been ravaged by a plague. The novel was harshly reviewed at the time, and was virtually unknown until a scholarly revival beginning in the 1960s. It is notable in part for its semi-biographical portraits of Romantic figures in Shelley's circle, particularly Shelley's late husband Percy Bysshe Shelley and Lord Byron. "The Last Man" received the worst reviews of all of Mary Shelley's novels: most reviewers derided the very theme of lastness, which had become a common one in the previous two decades. Individual reviewers labeled the book "sickening", criticized its "stupid cruelties", and called the author's imagination "diseased". The reaction startled Mary Shelley, who promised her publisher a more popular book next time. Nonetheless, she later spoke of "The Last Man" as one of her favorite works. The novel was not republished again until 1965. In the 20th century it received new critical attention.

        INDIAN OF THE NATION OF THE SHAWANOES [caption title]

      [Paris, 1826. Line engraving, approximately 14 x 10 1/4 inches. Matted. A few small chips and very short closed tears at edges. Small numbered label at upper left corner, later pencil annotations on blank verso. Light dampstaining at corners, not affecting image, some foxing. Good plus. Depicting a member of the Shawnee tribe, from the atlas of Collot's famous VOYAGE DANS L'AMÉRIQUE SEPTENTRIONALE...., where it is plate 19. Collot was sent by the French government to survey the Ohio and Mississippi valleys in 1796, to gauge the military situation on the frontier on the Spanish and American sides of the river, and to determine possible secessionist sentiment among American frontiersmen. Despite numerous difficulties in operating as a secret agent, under suspicion by both American and Spanish officials, Collot gathered a wealth of cartographical material, as well as sounding political waters. Returning to France, he prepared his work for publication and had it printed in 1804. Unfortunately, Napoleon had just sold Louisiana and, not wishing to draw attention to the area of which he had disposed, suppressed the publication. Collot died in 1805, and the sheets of the book and atlas sat in a warehouse for the next two decades. They were then purchased by Arthus Bertrand, the leading French publisher of voyages at the time. According to Bertrand's own testimony, he retained the original maps and plans, issued new titlepages with his imprint, and destroyed a number of sets to make it more scarce. The views in the atlas, printed on heavy paper, are quite impressive, and are some of the earliest of scenes in the Mississippi Valley.

        Monument élevé à la mémoire de la Pérouse.

      Paris: 1826. Lithograph, 190 x 280 mm.; mounted. 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. Very good.
