Estreicher 7108; Wellcome II, 166; Tischner S.742: ". das erste selbständige Werk über Homöopathie in französ. Sprache, das jedoch in Frankreich, wofür es wohl eigentlich bestimmt war, wenig beachtet worden ist, jedoch in Polen, Rußland und Italien mehr gewirkt zu haben scheint. Im ganzen steht das Werk auf dem rechtgläubigen Standpunkt Hahnemanns" - Der Elsässer Bigel, Leibarzt des Großfürsten Konstantin in Warschau, war einer der ersten Homöopathen in Polen und Russland (St. Petersburg). - Alle Bände mit 1836 datierten handschriftl.

Der durch eine Grippeepidemie und Asthma schwer erkrankte Everest ging nach Frankreich und wurde dort seiner Überzeugung nach von Hahnemann geheilt; um 1843 kehrte er nach England zurück und war dort maßgeblich an dem Erfolg der Homöopathie in England beteiligt. Sein Bruder George Everest (1790-1866), ebenfalls Patient Hahnemanns, ist der Namensgeber des Mount Everest. - Etwas berieben und bestoßen. Hübsches Exemplar in zeitgenössischen englischen Einbänden, mit Bindermarke R. Bailey in Thornbury & Wotton. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Kiho Gafu

      Kyoto 1827 - Small quarto. 2, 31, 4ff. Illustrated with thirty color wood-block prints by ukiyo-e artist Kawamura Kiho. Kiho, who was also known as Shun, Goitsu, and Chikurikwan, was the adopted son and acknowledged disciple of artist Kawamura Bumpo. Both Bumpo and Kiho are stylistically similar to the the Shijo school, which preferred gray and black lines highlighted with pale blushes of color over the more vivid ukiyo-e style popular at the end of the eighteenth century. These light colors are perfectly suited to this sensitive collection, most of which illustrate simple and quiet scenes from everyday life. Farmers and fisherman are interspersed with portraits of plants and animals. Of especial interest are three prints of people reading-a farmer bundling rice while reading a book laid open on the ground, a bearded man huddling beneath a lamp, and man lounging beneath a full moon. The images are preceded by a four-page preface and one page of calligraphy, and followed by a closing note, eight pages of advertisements, and a colophon. In the original blue covers patterned with waves of mica, with a title label to the upper cover. Overall light soiling and wear to covers, with minor worming to inside covers and last two leaves; red stamp to lower right and small loss to fore-edge of front cover; unobtrusive ink inscription to inside front cover; re-sewn with new thread and housed in new chitsu. A beautiful book by an under-appreciated artist. (Ryerson, p. 388; Brown, p. 105; Mitchell, pp. 360-361, Example A; Franklin, pp. 75 & 79).

        A Letter on the Government of the Cape of Good Hope,

      1827 - and on certain events which have occured there of late years, under the administration of Lord Charles Somerset. First edition. 8vo. Modern half morocco. 147pp. London, Carpenter and Son, ?The pamphlet throws considerable light on the disputes arising out of the settlement at Albany, and strongly criticises Lord Charles Somerset's methods of government, and mismanagement of the revenues of the Cape Colony? (Mendelssohn). This work forms part of the feud between Donkin and Somerset. Lord Charles Somerset left Cape Town in January 1820 and Donkin was appointed Acting Governor in his absence. During this period, he reversed Somerset's frontier policy and quarrelled with his predecessor, Captain Henry Somerset. However when Somerset returned he was incensed by what he found and Donkin returned to England in 1821, where he set about publicising his feelings on the Cape's government. Mendelssohn, pp477-8.

        Autograph letter signed ("H. Beyle").

      [Paris], "a Mercredi matin [21 March 1827]. - 8vo. 4 pp. on bifolium. Important letter in French, to Sophie Duvaucel, about Manzoni's "Promessi Sposi" ("The Betrothed"). Stendhal is to receive the third volume of the novel from General La Fayette: "There is a problem, it does not exist, or at least M. Manzoni only published the first half of this third volume. He thinks his novel is boring and it is said that he will not finish it. [ ] Mr. Ugoni from Brescia is the man in Paris who could most probably purchase the first half of the third volume for you. Mr. Fauriel, the only scholar in Paris who is not pedadantic, the old friend of Mme de Condorcet, is a close friend of Mr. Mazoni and has 'Gli Sposi' translated for a Mr. Trognon. This Mr. Trognon is the brother of the tutor of Monseigneur the Count of Beaujoulais or the Prince of Joinville, or it is the tutor himself. The princes live at the royal palace. Mr. Fauriel visits Mlle Clarke, where Mme Alexander could speak to him [ ]" (transl.). Though Stendhal made references to Manzoni's novel in Rome, Naples and Florence, its success probably displeased him. In his "Mélanges de littérature", Stendhal characterizes Manzoni as "excessively devout" and writes that "The Betrothed" are "overly praised", although he recognizes the book shows the existence of "Bravi" during the Spanish Government. - Sophie Duvaucel (1789-1867), daughter-in-law of Georges Cuvier, was one of the most endearing figures of the group of the "Jardin des Plantes". She assisted the naturalist in his works.

Joints starting a little, some slight loss at the crown, the usual light spotting in the text, and a small dampstain on the last three leaves, a sound and pleasing very good copy.

Roberts was the maitre d' for Christopher Gore, Governor and Senator of Massachusetts. This book was a standard reference for cooks and caterers of all races in the major Eastern cities. "Some historians think this work was seminal in producing men of singular ability as caterers, and managers - rather than servants - of large households." (Longone. American Cookbooks and Wine Books 1797-1950 p.2; Lowenstein 107; Axford p.221; Cagle & Stafford 647; Negro History: 1553-1903 #154). Although there are plentiful holdings in libraries it is, rare in the trade, the only other first edition we've handled was over 20 years ago. A handsome copy of an important book, in a nice contemporary American binding.

Containing an examination of the Antarctic Sea, to the seventy-fourth degree of latitude: and a visit to Tierra del Fuego, with a particular account of the inhabitants. To which is added, much useful information on the coasting navigation of Cape Horn, and the adjacent lands. With charts of harbours, &c.

      London Longman 1827 - First edition. 8vo., pp. iv, 276, hand-coloured aquatint frontispiece (offsetting from title), 4 engraved plates, 9 maps and charts, 7 folding (hemisphere maps with captions cropped at top as often), 2 folding lithographic panoramas and errata slip, occasional light foxing and offsetting, contemporary diced calf, red and black morocco labels, neat repairs to joints, an excellent example. Weddell (1787-1834), a Royal Navy officer, following the Napoleonic Wars found himself in need of an income. To this end he went on three sealing expeditions between 18221 and 1824The first of these was to the South Shetlands; the second to the South Orkneys; and the third, in 1823, to a new "Farthest South", exceeding Cook's 1774 record by almost three degrees. "With the immense benefit of benign weather, Weddell managed to sail further south than any man before him, and was rewarded by his discovery of the entire Weddell Sea. Even when sail ships were replaced by steam ships, and wooden hulls by metallic ice-cutters, his explorations were difficult to duplicate. It will be argued by many enthusiasts that the first edition is the true starting point for an Antarctic collection" (Taurus). Taurus 5; Rosove 345.A1; Books on Ice 6.1; Conrad p31; Spence 1248.

        Geographical maps of Russia depicting the coats of arms, costumes and distances from the two capitals for the benefit of young people].

      Fabr. Imper. Vospitatelnago Doma St. Petersburg 1827 - Forty eight copper plate engravings printed on cardboard (9.7 x 6.5 cm), in the French suit system, 47 cards out of the deck of 52 + 1 out of 8 additional cards: the extra card with the Coat of Arms of Cherkassk and lands/costume of the Don Cossacks, with full contemporary hand-colour and gold-edged. Extremely rare set of early hand-coloured playing cards with geographical maps of the Russian provinces, from the time of Alexander Pushkin. In 1827 the St. Petersburg artist Konstantin Gribanov (b.1797) completed a set of playing cards that would teach children about Russian geography by combining education with entertainment. With this in mind, Gribanov divided the face of each card into four sections, showing its suit, the coat of arms of a province, that province's local costume, and its major towns. The back of the card would feature a map of the province. The scope of preparatory work undertaken by the artist is truly impressive. The maps are accurately copied from "?????????????? ????? ?????????? ???????, ??????? ????????? ? ????????????" [Geographical Atlas of the Russian Empire, the Kingdoms of Poland and Finland], published in Voenno-topographicheskoye Depo under the supervision of Colonel Piadyshev in 1821. This work features sixty provinces, hence the unusual number of cards in the deck. For the designs of the coats of arms, the artist relied on the two most up-to-date sources: "???????? ? ?????? ????? ????????????? ???????" [Manifesto On All Coats of Arms of the All-Russian Empire] (compiled on the orders of Paul I in 1800) and "?????? ????????? ???????????? ???????? ?????? ?????????? ??????? ?? 1825 ???" [Register of the Designs for Coats of Arms of the Russian Empire, Approved by His Imperial Majesty in 1825]. These, however, comprised only verbal descriptions. As for the costume designs, at least 20 of them are copied from Georgi's famous work "Description of all the nations of the Russian Empire" (1776-7). Many others Gribanov apparently based on Emelyan Korneev's illustrations for Rechberg's "Les Peuples de la Russie" (1812-13). As we can see from archival documents, the project's realisation was not smooth. After originally banning the cards, the censorship committee only allowed Gribanov to publish them after he managed to prove that they were intended purely for educational purposes. When the cards were finally issued, they were priced at 8 rubles each; this high price explains the rather low demand for Gribanov's creation, which took seven years to sell. This set is not only a valuable record of the most up-to-date mapping and heraldry of the Russian Empire at the beginning of XIX century, but also a rare example of Russian playing cards with original artistic designs.

        May Fair. In four cantos. FIRST EDITION.

      William H. Ainsworth, Old Bond Street. 1827 2pp ads. Uncut in orig. drab boards, browned & sl. chipped paper label; hinges a little rubbed, small worm holes above label. A nice copy in its original state.Largely attributed to the Irish writer and Anglican priest George Croly, May Fair has also been attributed to Ainsworth. Not in Sadleir; Wolff 1632 lists it as by Croly. CBEL3 records this title under both Croly (author uncertain) and Ainsworth. The BL copy is attributed to Croly or Henry Luttrell. OCLC records no copies in North America. May Fair was published during the brief period in which Ainsworth both wrote and dabbled in publishing. The two pages of advertisements for Mr Ainsworth's books include the second edition of Sir John Chiverton his first novel (written in collaboration with J.P. Aston), the first edition of which had been published by John Ebers the previous year. May Fair, a sub-Byronic satire, is perhaps more likely to be by an author who affected to be a Byronic dandy at this period, rather than by Croly and, if so, this was Ainsworth's last volume of verse before embarking on his highly successful career as a novelist with Rookwood in 1834. carol check xref to Ainsworth.

London, Colburn, This is the third of Buckingham's four Middle-Eastern travel accounts, here in the 8vo. version. Commenting on the paucity of information respecting Mesopotamia, he places his narrative at the end of a list of those written by Benjamin of Tudela, Rauwolff, Della Valle, Otter and Niebuhr. The author was unaccompanied by any servant or companion, at all times adopted native dress and manners during his travels. He writes in a lively and entertaining way.This work proved much less contentious than his first ?Travels in Palestine? which had provoked a long and bitter argument with William Bankes. At the end of the above work Buckingham appended a long account of the final act of this seven year spat: his successful libel case against Bankes and John Murray, and the award of four hundred pounds damages.
