        Autograph letter signed ("Say"). Paris, 5. VIII. 1826.

      1826. Large 4to. 1 p. with the integral address leaf attached. In French, to the engineer Mr. Collier in Ghent, writing in part: "Here I am back home at last, where it seems I will not be disturbed. I saw the chancellor of France two times, the President of the Court of Peers, which is the only one with the jurisdiction to judge me, and it seems that they have no desire at all to treat me rigorously. I will probably be pardoned on the King s birthday at the beginning of November. I thought you would receive this news with interest, and I ask you to have the kindness to pass it on to your son in London, whom I won t write until later. The present letter has another purpose, as well, i.e., to solicit your good offices for having several prospectuses of my work on the judicial institutions of England &c. distributed in Ghent, particularly at the school; they will reach you with one of the next couriers [...]". - Say is best known for his law of markets, which postulates that supply creates its own demand. He attributed depression, therefore, not to a general deficiency in demand but rather to temporary overproduction for some markets and underproduction for others. This imbalance must automatically adjust itself, he believed, because overproducers have to redirect their production to conform with consumers preferences or be forced out of business. Say's law remained a central tenet of orthodox economics until the Great Depression of the 1930s. An obvious implication of Say s law is that the capitalist system is self-regulating; thus there is no need for government intervention in economic affairs.

        Illustrations of the Book of Job Invented & engraved by William Blake.

      London William Blake 1826 - "Blake’s Most Widely Known Achievement" BLAKE, William. Illustrations of the Book of Job. Invented & engraved by William Blake, 1825. [London: Published by the Author, and Mr. J. Linnell, 1874]. One of 100 sets printed on india paper. Folio (sheets: 20 x 14 inches; 510 x 350 mm. engravings 8 1/4 x 6 1/2 inches; 209 x 158 mm). Line-engraved title and twenty-one line- and stipple-engraved plates by and after Blake. Also with an additional letterpress title-page, not issued with the book. Evidence of the word proof on the lower edge of engravings number 5, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 14, 18 and 20. Bound in quarter reverse calf over black cloth. Spine lettered and ruled in gilt. With black and red morocco spine labels, lettered in gilt. Marbled endpapers. Corners a bit bumped, and cloth lightly scuffed. Sheets mounted on stubs. A bit of very light foxing to some of the sheets, generally not affecting engravings, mainly title-page sheet and sheet of plate 20. Plate 14 with the mounting sheet trimmed at top margin about 1.5 inches, not affecting plate. A fine, strikingly clean copy of "Blake’s most widely known achievement" (Keynes). The engravings were commissioned by John Linnell on March 25, 1823. Despite the date 1825 on the engravings, the plates were not actually issued until March 1826. The entire edition consisted of 315 sets: 150 "Proof" sets on India paper and sixty-five on French paper were printed in March 1826, at which time the word "Proof" was removed from the plates and 100 sets were printed on drawing paper (see Bentley). Blake’s original copperplates remained in the possession of the Linnell family, and as late as 1863, Linnell was offering for sale sets of the India-paper and French-paper issues. By 1874 these must have been sold, as a further 100 sets of the engravings were printed at that time (the present copy is from this set). No more pulls were taken between 1874 and 1919, when the copperplates were given by Herbert Linnell to the British Museum. Linnell's son wrote "My father considered the plates at the last [1874] were as good as they ever were, for the work being cut by a graver, and not etched, it is durable- and is not worn by the printing as is the case with an etching." (Bentley Books, p. 523). Bentley 421A. Binyon 105-126. Russell 33. HBS 65634. $32,500 [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        A BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF THE LIFE OF THE LATE CAPT MICHAEL CRESAP

      Cumberland, Md.: Printed for the Author, by J.M. Buchanan, 1826. 123,[1]pp. 12mo. Contemporary three-quarter roan and marbled boards, spine gilt. Boards lightly rubbed and shelfworn. Early ownership signature on front free endpaper. Light tanning, scattered foxing, old light dampstain in lower third of final five leaves of text. About very good. In a burgundy half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt, and folding cloth chemise. First edition of this biography of Captain Cresap, defending him against charges that he slaughtered Indians before the beginning of the Revolutionary War. In particular, Cresap became infamous in the case of the Indian, Logan, and the murder of his defenseless family in 1774. "This biography of Cresap was written to refute Jefferson's account in NOTES ON VIRGINIA....The immediate occasion for this now rare book, written by the revolutionary officer, later clergyman, who had married Cresap's widow, was the reopening of old sores by [Joseph] Doddridge in his then recently published NOTES [ON THE SETTLEMENT AND INDIAN WARS, OF THE WESTERN PARTS OF VIRGINIA & PENNSYLVANIA, FROM THE YEAR 1763 UNTIL THE YEAR 1783 INCLUSIVE] of 1824. The defense is complete and the biography is of absorbing interest" - Streeter. HOWES J32, "b." SABIN 35488. STREETER SALE 1335. FIELD 769. THOMSON 640. AMERICAN IMPRINTS 24967.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Dessau, 22. I. 1826.

      1826. 3 SS. auf gefalt. Doppelblatt. 8vo. In Zusammenhang mit der Redaktion der Ersch/Gruber'schen Enzyklopädie, vielleicht an Johann Gottfried Gruber: "Verehrter Freund, Ich wüßte in der That nicht, was Hassel u. ich Ihrer u. der ersten Redaktoren Mittheilung nach hinzufügen sollten, als ein: So ist's, u. wir werden das Unsrige thun. Daher schicke ich Ihnen Ihr Manuskript zum Druck mit einigen, den Styl betreffenden Bemerkungen zurück u. erwarte baldigst die Druckexemplare. Ferner lege ich bei den Artikel: - Cavaceppi - für die jetzt in Druck begriffenen Bogen. Ersch hat mir den Artikel in den Schuh geschoben u. zwar so eilig, daß er mir auftragen mußte, ihn direkt an Sie zu befördern. An Hassel kann ich erst nächsten Mittwoch schreiben, um ihm dann das Direktorium mit meinen Ergänzungen zurückzuschicken. Eine solche Revisionsarbeit läßt sich nicht übereilen; man muß Fach auf Fach durchgehen. Daß es jetzt an Fuhren zwischen Leipzig u. Dessau fehlt, weiß ich selbst aus Erfahrung, von Ihrem Pech her. Hartmann, Ackermanns Commissionär, weiß wohl am besten Gelegenheiten nachzuweisen. Noch erinnere ich Sie an den mir versprochenen Band H der Frankfurter Encyclop. Auch haben Sie, wenn ich nicht irre, für Ersch die Biogr. des Contemp. und die Supplem. der Encycl. Brit. angeschafft. Hab' ich Sie in dieser Hinsicht recht verstanden, so ersuche ich Sie, mir bei Ersch die H-Bände dieser Werke zur Mittheilung anzuweisen. Ich selbst habe für die H. Bibl. viele encycl. Werke angeschafft, Reallexika über einzelne Wissenschaften u. Künste [...] Aber Alles läßt sich von uns mit eigenen Mitteln nicht zwingen, wenigstens nicht sogleich. Haben Sie nicht vorläufig mit Rochlitz wegen Haendel u. Haydn gesprochen? [...]". Schon 1821-25 hatte Müller für die für die 1. Sektion der Ersch/Gruber'schen "Allgemeinen Enzyklopädie der Wissenschaften und Künste" 56 Artikel beigesteuert (überwiegend zu italienischen Themen sowie englischen und deutschen Schriftstellern). Im Dezember 1825 übernahm er mit Georg Hassel die Redaktion der 2. Sektion ("H-N"). Müller, bekannt als Verfasser der "Schönen Müllerin" und der "Winterreise" und wegen seines Enthusiasmus für den griechischen Freiheitskampf auch "Griechen-Müller" genannt, starb im Oktober 1827, noch nicht 33-jährig, an einem Herzinfarkt. Sein Nachlass wird von der Anhaltischen Landesbücherei Dessau verwahrt.

        "Journal de voyage en Egypte et en Nubie 1826". Autograph manuscript signed. Egypt, 1826.

      1826. 4to (235 x 185 mm). 177 pp. Contemporary wrappers (wanting spine). Ms. title and name on front cover. An early 19th century egyptologist's fascinating travel notes documenting his journey through the Nile valley, profusely illustrated with more than 230 sketches showing hieroglyphs and Greek and Coptic inscriptions. At the age of 27, Louis Vaucelle (1798-1851) undertook an expedition to Egypt to explore the banks of the Nile from Cairo to Aswan. He set out from Marseille on 27 January 1826 and reached the second cataract on 27 May. In his journal he accurately reproduces all cartouches and inscriptions of the temples, tombs and palaces visited up to the first cataract south of Aswan. He gives the condition of monuments (sometimes mere ruins), identifies traces of Christian chapels and churches, translates hieroglyphs dedicated both to pharaohs and Roman emperors, indicates (in cursive script) several Arabic words and names, and mentions the orientalists who preceded him: his mentor Champollion as well as Denon, Maillé, Belzoni, and Niebuhr. Among the temples and sites he describes are Ipsamboul, Edfu, Dakka ("un des mieux conservés"), Thèbes ("Louqsor"), Karnak, Denderah Assouan, Elephantine and Philae as well as the pyramids of Giza, Cleopatra's Needle, the Sphinx (the head of which is said to be "extrêmement mutilée"), Alexandria, and the Nile Delta. The final fifty-odd pages are devoted to contemporary Egyptian cities, their people, and their Arab, Jewish and Coptic traditions. As Vaucelle notes, Coptic Christians are free to practice their religion due to the unrivalled tolerance of the Muslim faith ("tant il est vrai qu'il n'y a pas de religion plus tolérante que la religion mahométane"). He also provides details of medical operations such as castration, circumcision, and excision, as well as of the "Kalisch" festivities held in Cairo at the time of the opening of the dikes. - Louis de Vaucelles de Ravigny was trained by Jean-François Champollion, who in 1824 published his "Précis du système hiéroglyphique des anciens Égyptiens". Apart from the present travel journal he also produced a "Chronologie des monuments antiques de la Nubie" (1829), based on the interpretation of the royal legends contained in the hieroglyphic reliefs, a book in which he pays tribute to the German egyptologist François-Christian Gau. - Slight fraying to edges; wants wrappers' spine. A fine survival.

Extremely rare in the original boards. This book is notorious for the poor quality of the paper, and even with the aforementioned issues this is a remarkably clean example of this classic of early American literature, certainly one of the best copies that we have seen over the past fifty years.

Both volumes chemised together in a full red morocco slipcase.?The second and most popular novel in the series The Leather-Stocking Tales by James Fenimore Cooper, first published in two volumes in 1826. In terms of narrative order, it also is the second novel in the series, taking place in 1757, during the French and Indian War. Its principal character is Natty Bumppo, also called Hawkeye, now in middle life and at the height of his powers. The story tells of brutal battles with the Iroquois and their French allies, cruel captures, narrow escapes, and revenge. The beauty of the unspoiled wilderness and sorrow at its disappearance, symbolized in Hawkeye?s Mohican Indian friends, the last of their tribe, are important themes of the Novel? (Merriam-Webster?s Encyclopedia of Literature).The Last of the Mohicans was the second and most famous of Cooper?s ?Leatherstocking Tales,? although it was the first tale to be published. The other novels in the series (in order of composition) are The Pioneers (1823), The Prairie (1827), The Pathfinder (1840), and The Deerslayer (1841). The sequence in relation to plot is The Deerslayer, The Last of the Mohicans, The Pathfinder, The Pioneers, and The Prairie.BAL 3833. Grolier, 100 American, 34. Shoemaker 24217.

        The Royal Pavilion at Brighton. Published by the Command of, and dedicated by permission to the King, by His Majesty's dutiful Subject and Servant John Nash.

      [1826] 1826 - [1826], Folio (520 x 410 mm), Fine Blue Morocco backed marbled boards, edges gilt, with 31 hand-coloured aquatints and 28 uncoloured line engravings, the hand-coloured plates mounted on buff card, one is large and folding, captions mounted on verso of the coloured plates, a splendid copy. First Edition of a monumental work describing one of the most extraordinary and flamboyant palaces in English history. This lavish work was conceived by the Prince Regent (then King George IV). He commissioned his architect Sir John Nash to produce a bound series of views displaying the wonders of the building that Nash had designed, the ' Royal Pavilion at Brighton' Nash instructed his pupil Augustus Pugin to produce a series of drawings, to be used to illustrate the work. Publication of this grand work was somewhat haphazard, resulting in copies of the book not conforming to the list of plates. This copy, however, is one of the most complete with a total of 59 plates.The Pavilion as we now know it was the result of a collaboration between the architect Sir John Nash (1752?1835), the firm of Crace (specialists in interior decoration) and their patron the Prince Regent. The Prince of Wales known familiarly to his friends as "Prinny", was born in 1762 and destined to become Prince Regent in 1811 following the onset of the madness of his father, George III. He finally became George IV in 1820, but reigned as such for only a decade, dying in 1830 at the age of 68. He is remembered as a great connoisseur and collector of art (setting a precedent for subsequent Princes of Wales to take an interest in architecture), most especially through his patronage of John Nash, who at his behest redesigned Buckingham Palace and created the elegant London developments still known as Regent Street and Regent's Park.

        Greenwich Hospital

      1826. first edition. In the Original Boards it is Extremely Scarce" (Cohn)Last Copy At Auction In 1944[CRUIKSHANK, George, artist]. AN OLD SAILOR [pseudonym of M.H. Barker]. Greenwich Hospital. A Series of Naval Sketches, Descriptive of the Life of a Man-O-War's Man. By an Old Sailor. With Illustrations by George Cruikshank. London: James Robins and Co., 1826. First edition. Large quarto (11 1/4 x 8 7/8 in; 286 x 223 mm). iv, 200 pp. Eleven hand-colored etched plates including frontispiece and one hand-colored aquatint plate (#8 "Paying Off"). Plates watermarked "J. Whatman 1825 & 1826". Sixteen text woodcuts. Publisher's original gray paper printed and pictorial boards entirely uncut. Small light marginal stain affecting first eight text gatherings (pp. 1-56), otherwise a very fresh copy. Spine ends, joints and corners expertly and almost invisibly restored. Still an exceptionally fine copy of a book rarely found in this state. Chemised in a felt-lined full dark blue morocco slip case."Originally published in four parts, and then in pink or gray paper picture boards, with woodcuts on the top and bottom covers duplicated from those in the text... In the original parts the work is of the utmost rarity, while in the original boards it is extremely scarce. Bound copies are much more usual. There is a reissue of this item with the plates coloured in a very inferior manner. This should be avoided" (Cohn).According to the ABPC Index, it has been seventy-two years since the last copy in original boards came to auction, in 1944.Of George Cruikshank (1792-1878), little need be added here beyond the fact that he followed his father, Isaac Cruikshank, into the trade and was the successor to Thomas Rowlandson; he was the greatest caricaturist of his era, known as "the Modern Hogarth." "Matthew Henry Barker,(pseud. the Old Sailor, 1790?1846), sailor and writer... served in the Royal Navy... After retiring from the service in 1813, he commanded a hired armed schooner... and was employed ... in carrying dispatches to the English squadrons on the southern coasts of France and Spain. On one occasion he fell into the enemy's hands and was detained for some months as a prisoner of war. In 1825 he became editor of a West India newspaper and was afterwards employed, from 1827 to 1838, in a similar capacity at Nottingham..."Under the pseudonym the Old Sailor, Barker wrote a number of lively and spirited sea tales, very popular in their day. These included such works as Land and Sea Tales (1836); Topsail-Sheet Blocks, or, The Naval Foundling (1838), which ran into several editions; The Naval Club, or, Reminiscences of Service (1843); and The Victory, or, The Wardroom Mess (1844). He was naval editor of the United Service Gazette and a frequent contributor to the Literary Gazette, the Pictorial Times, and Bentley's Miscellany, the last at the time under the editorship of Charles Dickens, who came to value the consistent quality of the contributions of ?the old Sailor?. Barker was a friend of George Cruikshank, who illustrated seven of his works. One of the most attractive of these was the reprint of a series of sketches originally published in the Literary Gazette as ?The Life of a Man-of-War's Man?. The volume edition was called Greenwich Hospital (1826) and was a great success with the public, going into an almost immediate reissue. Two other of his works illustrated by Cruikshank were Tough Yarns (1835), which he dedicated to Captain Marryat, and Nights at Sea (1852). He was also a chief contributor to Cruikshank's Omnibus."Barker felt that his publishers were less than generous with him, and the situation became worse as his sea tales fell out of fashion. He was married, but had increasing difficulty in supporting his family. He died, in poverty, on 29 June 1846" (Oxford DNB).Cohn 53. Abbey, Scenery, 226.

"The Othomi language differs in structure from those spoken in Mexico, having more resemblance to the language of Eastern Asia than any other. [Luis de Neve y Molina] was the first to establish a proper system of characters in 1767, which has since been retained" (Sabin). It is a monosyllabic language, which today is still spoken by nearly two million inhabitants of central Mexico. "The Otomis comprise a large number of tribes occupying the plateau north of the Anahuac Sierras. They are a hardy people and are the least civilized of the four principal native races [of Mexico]" (EB). 'The author was a native Mexican, and a religious of the Franciscan College at Pachuca. His vocabulary is still the post complete which has been published of this language" (Pilling, quoting the Ramirez Sale Catalogue), Ayer, Otomi, 6; La Vinaza, Bibliografia Espanola de Lenguas Indigenas de America (1892), 420; Ludewig, Literature of American Aboriginal Languages (1858), p. 141; Palau 142266; Pilling, Proof Sheets, 2316; Sabin 106013; Zaunmuller 293; not in Vancil or Trubner.

        Autograph letter signed "C M v Weber" to conductor Sir George Smart

      - 1 page. Oblong octavo. Dated [London] March 16, 1826. In black ink. In English. Weber sends his correspondent, in all likelihood Sir George Smart, a pianoforte adaptation of the first act of his opera, Oberon."According to your payment, I have the honour to send you hereby the first act of Oberon, adapted for the pianoforte. The 2nd act is also ready, and you can have it in any moment."Slightly worn and soiled; creased at fold and slightly overall; pink tinge to upper portion of leaf; cut from a larger sheet; small round paper label of the Rawkins Collection laid down to upper left verso. When a "veritable mania" for Der Freischütz swept London in 1824, Charles Kemble, manager of the Covent Garden Theatre, invited Weber to London to conduct the opera season and compose two new operas for Covent Garden. "Recognizing that his days were numbered and believing that the potential rewards offered by London would provide a measure of financial security for his family. Weber wrote to Kemble on 7 October to agree to compose an opera based on Wieland's romance Oberon and to go to London for three months in spring 1825. Weber received J.R. Planché's libretto for Oberon in three mailings between 30 December 1824 and 1 February 1825, by which time he had requested a postponement of the première until spring 1826. Weber left Dresden on 16 February 1826 to begin the long trip to London. On 25 February he arrived in Paris, where he spent a week making contacts with prominent musicians and poets, including Auber. Cherubini. [and] Rossini. Weber continued on 2 March, crossing the channel from Calais to Dover on 4 March and reaching London the next day. Staying at the home of George Smart in Great Portland Street, Weber completed the overture to Oberon, finished the music to Act 3, and composed two additional pieces specifically for the leading tenor, John Braham. During the month of rehearsals leading up to the première Weber somehow found the energy also to complete the piano score, conduct four Oratorio Concerts at Covent Garden, conduct at the Philharmonic Society, take part in two benefit concerts and perform in a number of aristocratic salons. The première of Oberon on 12 April 1826 was a great success, with lavish settings and spectacular scenic effects that impressed even Weber, and the opera remained popular throughout the season." Paul Corneilson, et al. in Grove Music Online. Weber died less than two months later, on June 5, 1826. The recipient of this letter was most likely the English conductor, organist and composer Sir George Smart (1776-1867), well-known for his interpretations of Handel's oratorios, and for introducing Mendelssohn's St. Paul to England. Smart was instrumental in negotiating Weber's 1826 visit to London, and who graciously hosted him there (Weber died in his home). His meticulous observations of the musical practices of his time rival those of his predecessor Charles Burney. W.H. Husk and Nicholas Temperley in Grove Music Online.

Son Excellence me charge de vous recommander la plus grande circonspection dans la communication que vous pourrez faire de cet ouvrage, afin d'éviter qu'il ne parvienne à la connaissance des marines rivales de celles de France, et qu'elles n'y trouvent pas à profiter des données entièrement neuves, dues à la longue expérience de Mr de Missiessy. Veuillez m'en remettre un reçu afin que je puisse l'envoyer au Ministère qui m'en fait la demande. Recevez Monsieur, l'assurance de ma pafaite considération. Jacote. A Monsieur Leblanc, Capitaine de Vaisseau à Toulon. » Sur la page de titre : « Envoyé à Monsieur Leblanc, Capitaine de Vaisseau, par le Ministère de la Marine et des Colonies, sur la demande de M.

Second edition of this rare work on naval tactics by Burgues de Missiessy (1756-1837). (First edition: 1802).

The letter was written in Toulon, January 30th 1828, by Jacote, from the French admiralty. Jacote recommends: the greatest circumspection in the communication you could make of this work, in order to prevent rival navies to be aware about it and to take advantage of the entirely new data, due to the long experience of Mr. de Missiessy. Very attractive copy of interesting provenance: capitaine Leblanc. Polak, 1324.

        The grounds and danger of restrictions on the corn trade considered: together with a letter on the substance of rent.

      Bath: printed by Richard Cruttwell; and sold by Hatchard, London. 1826. 8vo., xi + (1) + 134pp., including the half-title, the half-title soiled otherwise a fine, crisp, copy recently well bound in cloth lettered in gilt. Second edition: scarce. Goldsmiths 24876. This edition not in Kress (which has, however, the 1st ed. of 1820: C.542). Not in Williams. The author's Preface to this new 1826 edition suggests the state of things was worse even than in 1820. 'The scenes of wide calamity, which, in its divers forms, and with appalling magnitude, have lately been presented to our view, may serve, indeed, like wrecks upon the coast, as awful beacons, to warn us of the perils of an excessive paper currency - that fallacious fatal sea, which, however smooth and fair the surface may at times appear ... yet is always liable to be ruffled by the slightest winds, and too often to become so violently agitated, as to overwhelm confiding multitudes in utter ruin'.

        Catecismo y declaracion de la Doctrina Cristiana en lengua Otomi, con un vocabulario del mismo idioma

      impreso en la oficina de ciudadano Alejandro Valdes, Megico 1826 - First edition, small 4to, pp. 254, [2] errata; the dictionary occupies page 93-251; contemporary red morocco-backed marbled boards, smooth gilt spine laid out in 6 compartments, gilt-lettered direct in 1; lightly rubbed, but in all a very good, sound copy. The last copy at auction was the Phillipps copy in 1988. This is an Ayer Linguistic duplicate with a withdrawn stamp on the front pastedown. "The Othomi language differs in structure from those spoken in Mexico, having more resemblance to the language of Eastern Asia than any other. [Luis de Neve y Molina] was the first to establish a proper system of characters in 1767, which has since been retained" (Sabin). It is a monosyllabic language, which today is still spoken by nearly two million inhabitants of central Mexico. "The Otomis comprise a large number of tribes occupying the plateau north of the Anahuac Sierras. They are a hardy people and are the least civilized of the four principal native races [of Mexico]" (EB). 'The author was a native Mexican, and a religious of the Franciscan College at Pachuca. His vocabulary is still the post complete which has been published of this language" (Pilling, quoting the Ramirez Sale Catalogue), Ayer, Otomi, 6; La Vinaza, Bibliografia Espanola de Lenguas Indigenas de America (1892), 420; Ludewig, Literature of American Aboriginal Languages (1858), p. 141; Palau 142266; Pilling, Proof Sheets, 2316; Sabin 106013; Zaunmuller 293; not in Vancil or Trubner.

        Voyage autour du monde éxecuté par ordre du Roi, sur la corvette de sa Majesté, la Coquille, pendant les années 1822, 1823, 1824 et 1825... [Atlas Historique].

      Paris, Arthus Bertrand, 1826. 1826 1 vol. in-folio (480 x 326 mm.) de : titre gravé et 60 planches dont 59 sont finement aquarellées. (La planche 8 est toujours en noir et blanc.) Demi-chagrin noir d'époque, dos à nerfs titré en lettres dorées, plats recouverts de percaline. Atlas historique seul du voyage de Duperrey. Ayant quitté Toulon le 11 août 1822 à bord de la Coquille avec comme second Dumont dUrville, Louis Isidore Duperrey (1786-1865) traverse lAtlantique et atteint lîle de Soledad en novembre, puis il se dirige vers le Chili où il mène une enquête ethnographique sur les Indiens Araucans. Peu après, au Pérou, Duperrey se consacre à létude du magnétisme terrestre. Au cours de ses recherches, il réussit pour la première fois à tracer les méridiens et parallèles magnétiques. Quittant le continent sud-américain, la Coquille accoste à Réao, île des Touamotou, où Duperrey ne parvient pas à entrer en contact avec les habitants. Il débarque à Tahiti qui est également une désillusion, lîle est transformée par les missionnaires anglais. Sur le plan scientifique en revanche, lexpédition semble être une véritable réussite. La Coquille se rend successivement ensuite en Nouvelle-Irlande, dans lArchipel des Moluques, traverse le canal dOmbay, pour atteindre finalement Sydney en janvier. Le 24 mars 1825, le navire entre dans le port de Marseille. Sitôt revenu de son voyage, Duperrey s'attelle à sa publication dont il se réserve la partie "historique", l'hydrographie et la physique. La publication restera inachevée : publié sous forme de livraisons, de 1825 à 1838, l'ouvrage devait comprendre au total six tomes de texte en dix volumes et quatre tomes d'atlas en sept volumes. Bel exemplaire de cet ouvrage spectaculaire.1 vol. folio. Engraved title, 60 plates (59 handcoloured, by Ambroise Tardieu after Lejeune and Chazal depicting ethnographical material (native dwellings, tools, etc.), portraits of inhabitants of Chile, Peru, Barobora, Tahiti, New Guinea, etc., and views of Tahiti and New Zealand, and other Pacific Islands). Contemporary half shagreen. Atlas volume only to Histoire du voyage. "Duperrey [1786-1865] led a French government expedition to the Pacific area. René Lesson, who wrote his own account, also was aboard the Coquille, which called at Brazil, the Falkland Islands, Concepción, Callao, and Payta. The Pacific islands visited were the Tuamotu Archipelago, Tahiti and the Society Islands, Tonga, Rotuma, the Gilbert and Caroline Islands, and the Bismarck Archipelago. Australia was visited twice, and explorations made of New Zealand and of the Maoris were of particular significance. Vast quantities of ethnographic and scientific data were collected. Before returning to Marseilles, Java, Mauritius, and Ascension were visited" (Hill). Fine copy. O'Reilly-Reitman, 822.

        GERMAN POPULAR STORIES: Translated from the Kinder und Haus Marchen, collected by M.M. Grimm from Oral Tradition

      London: C. Baldwyn; James Robins, 1826. First English language editions. First issue. Two 12mo volumes (pages 172 x 102 mm): xii (but xiv with half-title), 240; iv (but vi with half-title), 256, [iv with translators note and leaf of advertisements]. Bound without the advertisements in volume 1, otherwise complete with half-titles, engraved titles, 20 engraved plates between the two volumes and advertisements in volume 2. Beautifully bound by Riviere and Son in full burgundy crushed levant morocco with six spine compartments, gilt details and all edges gilt. Both copies generally in excellent condition with minor darkening to the plates, the occasional spot of foxing and a slight abrasion to the top of title page in vol. 1 where it looks like a previous owner removed his name. Bindings clean and unworn. The Grimm brothers published their first collection of folk tales in 1812, first translated into English here, a little over a decade later. These stories include: "Cinderella," "Sleeping Beauty," "Snow White," "Rapunzel," "Hansel and Grettel," "Little Red Riding Hood," "The Frog Prince," "Rumple-stilts-kin," "The Fisherman and His Wife," "The Golden Goose," and many others. A collection containing several of the most iconic children's fairy tales ever published. In their original form, these tales are dark, full of violence and cruelty, hardly suitable for children. Over successive editions they were sanitized to be more appropriate for a young audience, losing much of their grit and medieval justice. Wonderfully illustrated by George Cruikshank, "as illustrations to these fairy tales, Cruikshank's etchings have never been surpassed." (Gottlieb). Cohn 369; Gottlieb, Early Children's Books, 197; Morgan, 197.

         [HAWAII] Plan de la rade de Kayakakoua sur l'île Owhyhi.

      Paris, 1826. 345 x 510 mm.Très rare plan de la baie de Kealakekua, anciennement Kayakakoua, située à l'ouest de l'île d'Hawaii, dans l'archipel du même nom. Levé et dressé par l'officier de Marine Louis-Isidore Duperrey en août 1819, ce plan est issu de la relation de l'un des plus importants voyages de circumnavigation, le "Voyage autour du monde sur les corvettes de S.M. l'Uranie et la Physicienne, pendant les années 1817, 1818, 1819 et 1820" de Louis de Freycinet. Le plan est accompagné de huit légendes montrant notamment le morai (temple) et le tombeau du roi Tamahama, ainsi qu'une batterie de canons. Les villages à proximité de la baie sont également indiqués. Accompagné d'une équipe de scientifiques composée de l'enseigne Duperrey, des chirurgiens Quoy et Gaimard, du pharmacien Gaudichaud et du dessinateur Jacques Arago, Louis de Freycinet, commandant de l'Uranie, quitta Toulon le 17 septembre 1817. L'expédition fit escale à Gibraltar, Rio de Janeiro, au Cap, à l'île Maurice et arriva en septembre 1818 sur les côtes ouest de l'Australie. Ils visitèrent ensuite Timor, les Moluques, Guam, Sydney et prirent la route du retour par le cap Horn qu'ils franchirent le 7 février 1820. Arrivé dans le détroit de Lemaire, l'Uranie subit une violente tempête et s'échoua dans la Baie Française. Après avoir sauvé l'essentiel des collections scientifiques, Freycinet et son équipage revinrent en France sur une corvette américaine achetée à cet effet, qu'il rebaptisa la Physicienne. Il arriva au Havre le 13 novembre 1820, après trois ans de navigation, rapportant de nombreuses et précieuses collections de mammifères, d'oiseaux, d'insectes, de poissons et de plantes. Acquitté par le Conseil de guerre, il fut promu capitaine de vaisseau et aussitôt affecté au Dépôt des Cartes. La description qu'elle contient de l'Australie, ainsi que les renseignements sur le Brésil, en font l'une des relations de voyages les plus importantes au XIXe siècle. Très légères rousseurs dans les marges, sinon bel exemplaire.

Selten im Handel - Erstdruck! - "Mit dem vorliegenden Bande fängt die Fortsetzung des 'Deutschen Archivs für Physiologie', im Ganzen nach dem früheren Plane, zugleich als für sich bestehende Zeitschrift an." Vorrede - - "In 1815 Meckel became the editor of Reil's journal, then known as Deutsches Archiv für die Physiologie, which listed among its distinguished collaborators Johann Herrmann Ferdinand von Autenrieth (1772-1835), Blumenbach, Ignaz Döllinger (1770-1841), Karl Frederick Kielmeyer (1765-1844), Sprengel, Johannes Müller (1801-1858) and others. Meckel wrote a preface to the first volume stressing that only articles based on observations and experiments would be printed. He hoped that such an approach would gradually prevail in German science in order to obviate the ridicule incurred by speculation. But Meckel also decried mindless experimentation. - - An early article concerned the development of the central nervous system in mammals, a study followed by new observations related to the evolution of the gut, heart, and lungs. Intersperses with these careful monographs were numerous shorter articles. They covered subject matters as varied as the generation of earthworms, bleeding diatheses, development of human teeth, and the cerebral anatomy of birds. - - From 1826 until his death, Johann Friedrich Meckel (1781-1833) was the editor of the Archiv für Anatomie und Physiologie, a continuation of the previous publication. His last articles dealt to a considerable degree with malformations as well as with vascular and pulmonary development." Whonamedit - - Johann Friedrich Meckel der Jüngere (1781-1833) contributions in the Archiv für Anatomie und Physiologie: - Bd. I (1826): - 1. Über die Kopfdrüse der Schlange. - 2.
