        A GENERAL MAP OF OHIO, FROM ITS SOURCE TO ITS MOUTH: CONTAINING THE NAMES OF THE TOWNS VILLAGES AND FARMS ESTABLISHED AT PRESENT ON ITS BANKS TOGETHER WITH ITS SOUNDINGS AND COURSES [caption title]

      [Paris, 1826. Four engraved plates of varying lengths, all 11 1/2 inches in height. Previously folded, backed on linen. Two plates edged with cloth tape. Linen backing slightly frayed in places, a few corners worn. Pencil annotations and small numbering labels. Light dust soiling and dampstaining. Somewhat tanned. Good plus. A large and highly detailed map of the entire Ohio River from Pittsburgh to present day Cairo, Illinois from Collot's famous and incredibly rare VOYAGE DANS L'AMÉRIQUE SEPTENTRIONALE.... 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. This map of the Ohio is a landmark in American cartography of the early republic, and is beautifully engraved on heavy paper, as were all of the maps in the atlas. It is probably the finest and most detailed map of the Ohio printed up to this point.

        Plan de la ville kapitale de Moscou.

      Moskva Selivanovskiy -27 1826 - Lithographed map in 10 sheets (96 x 67 cm), with 10 lithographed views on both sides of the map, cut and pasted on linen, with green silk boarder, folding into original cardboard slipcase; some light spotting and soiling, slipcase rubbed, joints partly split. Index in Russian and French (23.5 x 14.5 cm): 43 pp., original marbled wrappers. Rare plan of Moscow illustrated with ten fine views of the main landmarks of the city; complete with explanatory pamphlet in French and Russian. Born in 1769, Savinkov belongs to the post-Makhaev generation of Russian map engravers and publishers which flourished after Paul I's reforms of the cartographic industry in Russia. Shortly after ascending the throne, Paul I, concerned with the poor quality of maps and atlases produced within the Russian Empire, issued a decree on 13 November 1796 aimed at centralising the cartographic production. This lead to the creation of His Majesty's "Maps Depot", with a special engraving section formed in 1798 and a Geographical Department in 1800. Savinkov entered the Depot in 1799 and realised there one of the earliest postal maps of the Empire (in 1808). Very rare. Russian State Library holds a copy of the explanatory pamphlet but not the plan itself; WorldCat locates a copy of the pamphlet and map only in the Library of Congress. Russian State Library, Katalog planov Moskvy (Moscow, 1998), N59 (index only); Klepikov XXVI; Not in Gubar (Savinkov's Plan of Saint Petersburg, 1825 only, No2389); not in Rovinskiy, Slovar graverov, 857.

Die Reisenden brachen im Februar 1822 von Tripolis in den Fessan (im heutigen Libyen) auf und drangen bis zum November bis zum Tschadsee vor. Anschließend trennten sich ihre Wege: Denham begab sich nach Kuka, der Residenz des Sultans von Bornu, den er auf einem Kriegszug gegen das Nomadenvolk der Fulbe begleitete; Clapperton drang bis nach Sokoto (im heutigen Nordwesten Nigerias) vor. Später trafen beide wieder zusammen und kehrten 1825 gemeinsam nach England zurück.

        Pièce autographe signée - Certificat médical

      1 page in-4 Paris, 30 mars 1826, , 1 page in-4, , Dupuytren rappelle que deux ans auparavant il eut « à faire l'extirpation d'une tumeur polypeuse que M. Eugène Doumere portait dans l'intérieur du rectum. » La tumeur est tombée mais elle a reparu et cause au soldat Doumere « des pesanteurs, des douleurs au fondement et aux reins, des pertes de sang et autres incommodités qui paraissent incompatibles avec le service militaire ». Le 14 avril 1826, un membre du Comité de visite des militaires confirme le diagnostic de Dupuytren au Ministre de la Guerre : « Monsieur Doumere [...] n'est point propre à servir comme soldat étant habituellement souffrant à l'occasion d'une tumeur variqueuse ou polypeuse qu'il porte dans le rectum et de laquelle il découle fréquemment et surtout quand il se perce plus qu'à l'ordinaire, une matière puriforme... ». Au verso du document, un certificat du maire du 4e arrondissement en date du 25 mars 1826 témoigne de la véracité de la signature de Dupuytren.

        POLAND – NORTHEASTERN REGION: MAPPA JENERALNA WOJEWÓDZTWA AUGUSTOWSKIEGO POD?UG SOTZMANN UWAZAI?C ZASZ?E ODMIANY PRZEZ JULIUSZA COLBERGA 1826.

      Warsaw: Jo?zef S?awin?ski at the Instytut Litograficzny Szkolny 1826 - Lithograph with original outline colour, comprised of irregularly-shaped sections carefully mounted on original linen, with original manuscript label to verso (Very Good, exquisite original hand colour, cropped close along top margin almost to neatline, small abrasion to upper-centre border with very minor loss to some peripheral details, tiny chip to blank margins, some light toning and minor wear along original folds), 57 x 43 cm (22.5 x 17 inches). One of the great rarities of important Polish-language cartography – Juliusz Kolberg’s map of the Augustów Voivodship (north-eastern Poland) from his atlas of Congress Poland, issued in Warsaw during the dramatic period leading up to the November Uprising. This exceptionally rare and high quality map is amongst the finest maps to be printed in the Polish language during the 19th Century. It is one of a series of eight maps of the voivodships (provinces) of Congress Poland (the Russian puppet-state created in 1815 that embraced much of today’s Central and Eastern Poland) published in Warsaw for Juliusz Kolberg, a fascinating figure who managed to produce great cartography under challenging political circumstances. The map is a fine example of early Polish lithography, featuring lovely original outline colours in distinctly Polish hues. While the map is primarily printed in the Polish language, its title and legends are subtitled in French, then a Pan-European intellectual language. Importantly, Kolberg’s work fulfils multiple roles, being a highly accurate topographical map, but also a sophisticated thematic map with detailed political, economic, and cultural information, rendering it by far the best map ever created of the voivodship. The map presents the Augustów Voivodship, which existed in the form depicted here from 1816 to 1844 (although in 1837 it became a gubernya, in 1844 it had it limits extended to the southwest, and was finally dissolved in 1867), located in the far northeast of today’s Poland (comprising parts of the modern Podlaskie and Warmi?sko-Mazurskie Voivodships) and reaching north along the left bank of the Neman River to include a part of today’s Lithuania up to a point just south of Kaunas. Overall, Augustów Voivodship had the shape of a panhandle, squeezed between Prussian territory and Russia. The capital of the voivodship was Suwa?ki and, as shown, the jurisdiction is further divided into five counties, which are subdivided into districts. As noted in the title, Kolberg in good part based his map on that of ‘Sotzmann’, specifically meaning Johann Christoph Textor‘s Topographisch-Militaerische Karte vom vormaligen Neu Ostpreussen oder dem jetziger Nördlichen Theil des Herzogthums Warschau nebst dem Russischen District (Berlin, 1807), a monumental 16-sheet survey that was edited and published by Daniel Friedrich Sotzmann. This survey was commissioned while the region that would later become the Augustów Voivodship was part of the Prussian province of New East Prussia. The Textor-Sotzmann map is widely considered to be one of the finest survey maps made anywhere in Europe during its era. Far beyond its topographical accuracy, Kolberg’s map is a highly sophisticated multi-thematic map that features detailed information with regards to the economy, transportation, religious affairs/education and civil administration of the voivodship. Given this, the map is by far the most accurate and detailed map ever created of the Augustów Voivodship. While the basic topographic template and some of the thematic information was borrowed from the Textor-Sotzmann map, much else is fresh information acquired by Kolberg directly from his contacts in the government. The literally scores of symbols used on the map are labelled within the legends in the upper right. Conventionally, there are symbols identifying several different types of settlements ranked by their political importance and size, ranging from the voivodship, county and district seats all the way down to villages,

        Picturesque Views on the Southern Coast of England

      - Turner, J.M.W. Picturesque Views on the Southern Coast of England, 2 volumes, London: John and Arthur Arch, 1826. Quartos, first edition, unpaginated with 80 engravings, contemporary polished calf with elaborate gilt-stamped floral decoration, red morocco labels and five raised bands on spines, a.e.g., engravings by George and W.B. Cooke and others. Engravings include 48 plates and 32 vignettes. Front pastedowns have the armorial bookplate of Haughton Charles Okeover (see Ellis catalog, entry No. 4132), flyleaf in V.1 has the signature of his mother, Mary Anne Okeover, dated 1827. The son was the high sheriff of Derby in the mid-19th century. The brothers Cooke were among England's most important engravers. This work took them 12 years, with W.B. creating 20 plates and George 14. According to Gordon Ray (Illustrator and the Book in England), this book was released in parts between 1814 and 1826. It "helped to awaken the British to the glories of their coastline" (see Ray entry No. 11). He ranks this as one of the 100 outstanding illustrated books published in England between 1790 and 1914. Condition of these books: Boards worn at edges, backstrips show some losses at upper V.1, lower V.1 pulling away, V.2 has lost one of its morocco labels. Leaves clean and tight, with scattered foxing, images near fine to fine. Overall good and sound. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Discussion médico-légale sur la folie ou aliénation mentale, suivie de l'examen du procès criminel d'Henriette Cornier, et de plusieurs autres procès

      [4]-176 pages, [48] pages de Paris, Migneret, 1826, in-8, [4]-176 pages, [48] pages de catalogue éditeur, broché, couverture imprimée de l'éditeur, Tiré à part de cette étude médico-légale sur la criminalité et la liberté morale, parue à l'origine dans les Archives générales de médecine en 1826 (série 1, n° 10). Georget s'intéressa à la médecine légale au travers des Archives de médecine, dans lesquelles il fit paraître plusieurs articles qui apportèrent une contribution méthodologique et clinique importante à la psychiatrie judiciaire, et qui donnèrent lieu à des polémiques ardentes : en effet, Georget s'opposait à l'internement abusif et aux condamnations frappant des êtres "plus justiciables de l'asile que de l'échafaud" (Semelaigne). Ainsi écrivait-il en 1826 : "La séquestration des aliénés, telle qu'elle existe aujourd'hui, pourrait avoir pour un gouvernement despotique de graves inconvénients". Étienne Jean-Georget (1795-1828), jeune médecin attaché à l'établissement de la Salpêtrière, puis gradué docteur à la Faculté de médecine de Paris en 1820, apporta un travail de recherche considérable sur la psychiatrie. Élève d'Esquirol, il s'inspire des travaux de Bichat et précise, à travers son oeuvre, la classification nosographie de Pinel, en cherchant à distinguer dans la folie des groupements de symptômes, des syndromes cliniques reconnaissable que sont l'idiotie, la manie, la mélancolie ou encore la démence. Les éditeurs du Dictionnaire de la médecine lui confièrent la rédaction des articles concernant les maladies mentales et nerveuses : délire, folie, hystérie et névrose. Exemplaire provenant de la bibliothèque de Jules Falret (1824-1902), avec son cachet ex-libris : fils du célèbre aliéniste Jean-Pierre Falret, Jules Falret fut lui-même un médecin réputé. Il dirigea l'asile de Vanves à la suite de son père. Exemplaire en bon état malgré quelques rares rousseurs Les dernières pages du traité sont jaunies. Catalogue de fin non coupé. Semelaigne I, p. 188 et suiv.

      London, John Murray, 1826. XLVIII, 335, 269 S., 1 Bl. Enthalten sind 38 ganzseitige Kupferstich-Illustrationen, darunter eine kolorierte Tafel sowie, eine mehrfach gefaltete Karte im Format: 67 x 42 cm. Bericht der Afrikaforscher Dixon Denham (1786 - 1828) und Hugh Clapperton (1788 - 1827) über ihre 1821 gemeinsam mit John Barrow (1764 - 1848) und dem Arzt Walter Oudney (1790 - 1824) unternommene Expedition in das Innere Afrikas. Die Reisenden brachen im Februar 1822 von Tripolis in den Fessan (im heutigen Libyen) auf und drangen bis zum November bis zum Tschadsee vor. Anschließend trennten sich ihre Wege: Denham begab sich nach Kuka, der Residenz des Sultans von Bornu, den er auf einem Kriegszug gegen das Nomadenvolk der Fulbe begleitete Clapperton drang bis nach Sokoto (im heutigen Nordwesten Nigerias) vor. Später trafen beide wieder zusammen und kehrten 1825 gemeinsam nach England zurück. Der Band besticht im Besonderen durch seine originellen Illustrationen, die ein - vor allem für die damaligen Zeitverhältnisse - sehr anschauliches Bild von der Kultur und Lebensweise der eingeborenen Stämme vermitteln. Der teilweise (an den seitlichen Lederflächen) restaurierte Band in gutem, festem Zustand seitlich sind noch gewisse Bestoßungsspuren erkennbar, die den guten Gesamteindruck aber nicht trüben. Seiten partiell etwas fleckig bzw. gebräunt. In toto ansehnliches Exemplar dieses spannenden, eindrucksvoll illustrierten Expeditionsberichtes. Zahlreiche weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben). Good copy of this exciting, impressively illustrated expedition report.

      Imprimerie de Mme veuve Agasse (1826), Paris - First edition. Published unbound. 12 p. Benjamin Constant's speech regarding a draft law related to the Haiti indemnity. After the successful slave rebellion of Saint-Domingue which culminated in the elimination of slavery and the founding of the Republic of Haiti it took more than twenty years until the French ruler, King Charles X of France recognised the independence of the island in return of 150 million gold franc indemnity in April 1825. The sum was later reduced to 90 million in 1838. The issue of the indemnity appeared again in 2003 when the President of Haiti demanded France to pay back over 21 billion U.S. dollars, the equivalent in today's money of the 90 million gold francs, however in 2004 the prime minister rescinded the reparations demand. Benjamin Constant (1767-1830) was a liberal politician and writer, one of the most visible of the French liberal party; he was elected to parliament in 1819, and later became president of the cabinet. Not in Sabin. We could trace only 3 copies in institutional holdings worldwide. First and last leaves slightly discoloured, torn at spine. Possessor's inscription on first page in ink.

        Map of the County of Norfolk, from Actual Survey By A. Bryant, In the Years 1824, 1825, and 1826. Respectfully Dedicated to the Nobility, Clergy & Gentry, of the County.

      Published by A. Bryant, 27, Great Ormund Street, Dec.r 1st, 1826., London, - The most important nineteenth century map of Norfolk Large scale engraved map, fine original hand-colour, dissected and mounted on linen, in two sections, key to map lower left, view of Norwich Cathedral lower right, edged in green silk, housed in full calf pull-off slipcase, red morocco label lettered in gilt to spine. Bryant's large scale map of Norfolk.A superbly detailed map in the Bryant tradition, one of thirteen counties surveyed between 1822 and 1835. The detail includes towns, villages, churches, buildings, castles, parks, gentleman's seats, commons, heaths and hills, parishes and other boundaries, broads, fens, canals, wind and water mills, fox covers, roads, lanes, toll bars and rivers. Though the two sections are almost completely filled by the map, Bryant manages to include a large calligraphic title and view of Norwich Cathedral without them being obtrusive. There is the usual list of "Ecclesiastical Divisions" and the "Explanation". The latter follows the pattern of Bryant in 1822, when he produced his first survey of Hertfordshire. One addition to the present map is the detail shown of the Fens and the Marshland, but a more regular feature is the careful delineation of cities and towns in an ichnographical manner, one of the great advances of the large scale map over its atlas counterpart. Scale: 1 1/4 inches to one statute mile. 1480 by 2300mm (58.25 by 90.5 inches). Rodger 324.
