        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.

        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; tipped into a modern binding of quarter linen and boards. 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. (Some 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. In fine condition.

      1826. 3 pagine in-4 indirizzate a ''Monsieur'' identificabile con il Vicerè piemontese in carica tra 1824 e 1829 Giuseppe Tornielli. François Xavier de Maistre, appena rientrato a Torino dopo un lungo soggiorno in Russia dove ritornerà dopo il 1838, chiede consigli su come investire i capitali che gli derivano dal pagamento della dote della moglie ed in particolare se conviene acquistare ''les fonds publics''. ''..Je n'entende fort peu en finances et que je ne voudrais pas risquer la fortune de mes enfans, j'ai recours aux bontés de V.E. pour qu'elle daigne me dire si la chose est possible sans danger..''. François Xavier de Maistre (Chambery 1763 - Pietroburgo 1852), fu ufficiale nell'esercito del Re di Sardegna, antirivoluzionario e contrario a Napoleone. Scrisse il ''Voyage autour de ma chambre'' nella cittadella di Torino durante la prigionia per un duello. Questo fu il suo libro più importante e noto (altri: ''Il lebbroso della città d'Aosta''. ''La giovane liberiana''- ''I Prigionieri del Caucaso''). Dopo l'occupazione francese del Piemonte passò dalla parte del generale Suvarov, militò nell'esercito russo e si stabilì a Pietroburgo.

        Mémoire sur le chemin de fer de St-Etienne à Lyon, par Saint-Chamond, Rives-de-Gier et Givors

      Paris, Firmin Didot, 1826. 1826, 1826, in-4, (2), 28pp, 1 plan, br, étui-chemise, PREMIERE EDITION. Document d'une extrême rareté. Très grand plan (119 x 20 cm) lithographié et replié; le tracé de la ligne de chemin de fer entre Saint-Etienne et Lyon a été colorié à l'époque. Ce mémoire, daté à la main du 4 décembre 1826, signé Seguin Frères, Ed. Biot & Cie, est en fait l'oeuvre de Marc Seguin (1786-1875) dit l'aîné; il est adressé à Monsieur Becquey, directeur-général des Ponts-et-chaussées et des Mines. Suite à ce document, Marc Seguin obtiendra avec ses frères la concession pour construire cette première ligne de chemin de fer en France. Pour son tracé, il avait imaginé l'utilisation des courbes à faible pente pour franchir les importantes dénivellations. Il fit creuser les premiers tunnels, remplaça les rails en fer par des rails en fonte et les dés en fer par les traverses en bois. Toutes ces innovations seront adoptées lors des prochaines constructions de voies ferrées. Au moment de cette publication, Marc Seguin, brillant ingénieur ardéchois, travaillait déjà à l'amélioration de la locomotive à vapeur mise au point par l'anglais Stephenson. En 1827, il présentera une chaudière tubulaire (qui porte son nom); elle devait équiper les locomotives du nouveau réseau ferré qu'il projetait de construire. Selon le catalogue de Gumuchian, entièrement consacré aux publications ferrovaires en français à partir de 1824, le document présenté ici est le deuxième après celui de Nicholson publié la même année. C'est donc un des premiers documents fondamentaux de toute collection sur le sujet. Exemplaire en parfait état, à grandes marges; quelques paragraphes des pages 4 et 5 ont été mis en valeur par un grand trait à l'encre noire, le mot strictement est souligné. Ces paragraphes concernent plus spécialement la gestion financière de la ligne. Exemplaire bien complet de son plan qui semble faire souvent défaut

        Essay on the Principle of Population

      1826. MALTHUS, Thomas Robert. An Essay on the Principle of Population; or, A View of its Past and Present Effects on Human Happiness. London: John Murray, 1826. Two volumes. Octavo, contemporary full diced brown calf, raised bands, black and red morocco spine labels, marbled endpapers and edges. Housed in a custom slipcase. $2600.1826 edition of MalthusÂ’ controversial Essay, the final one published in his lifetime, in contemporary calf.“One of the founders of modern economics,” Malthus first published his highly contested Essay on the Principles of Population in 1798. This landmark work “was originally the product of a discussion on the perfectibility of society with his father, [who] urged him to publish. Thus the first edition (published anonymously) was essentially a fighting tract, but later editions were considerably altered and grew bulkier as Malthus defended his views against a host of criticsÂ… The Essay was highly influential in the progress of thought in early 19th-century Europe [and] his influence on social policy was considerableÂ… Both Darwin and Wallace clearly acknowledged Malthus as a source of the idea of ‘the struggle for existence” (PMM 251). “The achievement of Malthus was the exposition of the theory of population; and his name has been associated so closely with this theory that, like DarwinÂ’s, it has added a new adjective to the language of civilized peoples” (Palgrave II:670-1). This is the sixth edition, the final one to be published in his lifetime. Lowndes, 1459. Goldsmiths 24893. Early owner signatures dated 1874.Text quite fresh and clean, Volume II with small chip to rear free endpaper, slight rubbing, edge-wear to contemporary boards. An extremely good copy.
