        Tableau Encyclopédique et Méthodique des Trois Règnes de la Nature: VERS, COQUILLES, MOLLUSQUES ET POLYPIERS.

      Paris, Agasse, 1827. 3 volumes. 4to (292 x 220mm). pp. viii, 180, with 493 engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, richly gilt spines with 2 blue gilt lettered labels, marbled sides. A fine complete copy of the invertebrate section of the 'Encyclopédie Méthodique.' The shell section covers plates 160 to 471, and all plates are suberbly drawn and engraved, many by De Sève, Marechal, Redouté and other famous artists of the period. 'Bruguière is chiefly remembered for his writings on invertebrates in the 'Encyclopédie Méthodique'; and his excellent work on lower animals earned him a high reputation in his day... Among the larger French collections in private hands was that of the eminent botanist Louis Claude Marie Richard, which was advertised for sale in 1819. If the advertisement is to be believed it must have been very fine indeed; for it included the valuable Hwass collection and 167 paintings of shells executed by J. Barraband, many of them being the originals from which the illustrations of the 'Encyclopédie Méthodique' were engraved' (Dance pp. 63 & 98). A few plates with some worming in the margin not affecting the illustrations.//Nissen ZBI, 4621.

        The Aeropleustic Art, or Navigation in the Air, by the Use of Kites, or Buoyant Sails.

      Wilson for Sherwood London 1827 - Quarto (32.5 x 27.8 cm). Calligraphic title engraved by A. Adlard with hand-coloured aquatint vignette by P. Roberts, dedication leaf, 51 pp., with 3 hand-coloured aquatint plates by P. Roberts after T. Butterworth and S. Colman.; scattered foxing. Original drab boards with printed paper label to upper cover, rebacked with black morocco gilt, spine with raised bands; large English cartographic engraving pasted to upper pastedown. First edition of this unusual book primarily concerned with the use of kites in transport - with plates beautifully hand-coloured. The book was sold with plain plates at 20s or with coloured at 25s. "Still a Boy with the Boys", as the he puts it in the dedication, George Pocock was a schoolmaster at Prospect Place Academy, a school in Bristol. He has been described as the father of kite traction since his main extra curricular interest was inventions and kites, exploring "Things unattempted yet". The book details the origin and history of the invention, going back to his own childhood. Experimenting with kites and stones, Pocock "wondered" and grew ambitious. The book continues with accounts of Pocock's experiments with kites, for example using kites to pull boats. Pocock also explains the mechanics, construction and the power of kites. He then propounds several uses for them. Their application by sea included serving as auxiliary sails to the navy, trading vessels and merchant men. He also suggests using kites in the case of a shipwreck, using them to drop anchor. Pocock does, however, acknowledge that portions of the plan are not practicable. Most notably, Pocock invented and patented the "charvolant", a carriage that would be pulled by two kites attached by controllable lines, rather than horses. The name for this apparatus came for the French for kite, cerf-volant, and the French for carriage, char. This carriage could allegedly reach speeds of twenty miles per hour. The book discusses journeys from Bristol to Marlborough stating that they beat one of the London stages to Marlborough by twenty-five minutes, even thought the stage had a fifteen minute head start. Of this journey Pocock comments: "This mode of travelling is of all others the most pleasant: privileged with harnessing the invincible winds, our celestial tandem playfully transpierces the clouds, and our mystic moving car swiftly glides along the surface of the scarcely indented earth; while beholders, snatching a glance at the rapid but noiseless expedition, are led to regard the novel scene rather as a vision than a reality."

        Narrative of Don Juan Van Halen's Imprisonment in the Dungeons of the Inquisition at Madrid, and His Escape in 1817 and 1818; to Which are Added His Journey to Russia, His Campaign with the Army of the Caucasus, and His Return to Madrid in 1821

      London: Henry Colburn, 1827. Hardcover. Very good. First edition in English. Two volumes, pp. xix, 380, with frontis portrait and two folding facsimiles; xv, 496. with frontis portrait, two folding panoramas, and folding sketch map of the Caucasus and Georgia. Contemporary marbled boards, rebacked with modern calf spine with gilt rules and red label. Edges and corners rubbed. Bindings sound, text with some foxing and offsetting. A Spaniard of Dutch heritage, Van Halen (1788-1864) entered the Spanish navy in 1803, sailing to Cuba and Mexico. In 1808 he became involved in the Peninsula Campaign, first fighting for the Spanish, then briefly joining the French after being taken prisoner, and finally returning to the Spanish side, boldly fooling the French into surrendering three forts by dressing as a French officer and presenting forged documents announcing a treaty. He received a promotion for this coup, but in 1817 fell victim to the Inquisition and was (according to his own account) imprisoned and tortured. Escaping to Russia, he spent 18 months as a colonel in the Caucasus Dragoon Regiment under General Yermalov in Tblisi, Georgia. Despite some likely fictional elements, this account of his adventures is generally regarded as based in truth. British traveler and scholar John Frederick Baddeley describes it as "one of the best of the early books of travel and adventure in the Caucasus" (Russian Conquest of the Caucasus, p. 123).

        PAIR OF REVERSE SILHOUETTE PROFILE PORTRAITS PAINTED ON GLASS].

      [New York. 1827]. - Two portraits on glass measuring approximately 7 x 5 inches; framed to 10 x 7 1/2 inches. Minor wear. Contemporary frames with wear and paint touch ups. Very good. Two reverse silhouette portraits on glass painted by famed American artist George Catlin, signed by him. Each is painted within an oval frame with gold gilt spandrels, bearing the signature "G. Catlin, 1827" within the oval. The first portrait depicts a military officer in full dress uniform, facing left. His name has, presumably been painted on the frame but has been rubbed away. The second portrait is of a woman in a linen cap with lace collar and earrings. Each is housed in an ebonized molded frame of the period. After abandoning a career in law, George Catlin (1796- 1872) moved to Philadelphia in 1821 to cut his way as an artist. He exhibited frequently and, in 1824, became a member of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. He earned the bulk of his income doing society portraits and miniatures, though he quickly tired of both. In 1826 he travelled to Buffalo where he painted a well received portrait of the Seneca chief, Red Jacket. During this period he produced original artwork on the Erie Canal and the falls at Niagara (his first collection of prints, VIEWS OF NIAGARA, was published in 1831). The following year he moved to New York, where, presumably, these portraits were painted. While there he received his most important commission to date, a full-length portrait of Gov. DeWitt Clinton. Meanwhile, George Catlin and his younger brother, Julius, were formulating a plan for a joint venture into Indian territory. George was to paint the Indians, while Julius would gather archaeological specimens. In a tragic turn of events of the sort that plagued Catlin's life, Julius drowned while swimming in the Genesee River in September of 1828, an event that art historian Brian W. Dippie says contributed mightily to Catlin's eagerness to escape west. Four years later he embarked on his celebrated western tour. A charming pair of silhouette portraits from early in this noted artist's career.

        Personal Narrative of Adventures in the Peninsula during the War in 1812-1813. By an Officer late in the Staff Corps Regiment of Cavalry.

      London: John Murray,, 1827. Octavo (183 x 111 mm). Contemporary speckled calf, decorative gilt spine, green morocco label, red & brown speckled edges. Wood engraving (at p. 239) of the main gateway at Palencia. Contemporary armorial bookplate of Alexander Gordon of Auchlunies, uncle to Wellington's chief ADC Sir Alexander Gordon. A crisp, clean copy in a lovely period binding. First edition of this decidedly uncommon Peninsula War narrative; Copac locates seven copies in British and Irish institutional libraries (Cambridge, Oxford, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Manchester, Scotland, Southampton); not in OCLC. Buckham served mainly with the commissary and his first-hand account is an important one, particularly in that his approach to the campaign diverged from other writers of the time: "E. W. Buckham's Personal Narrative... which commiserated the soldiers' suffering rather than celebrate military adventure, was similarly criticised by the 'Naval and Military Magazine', which doubted that the author had even truly been a 'military man'" (Neil Ramsey, The Military Memoir and Romantic Literary Culture, 1780-1835, 2011, p. 75).

(Garrison), and the stimulus for the study of tissue pathology in England.Hodgkin was the first in England to give a regular course of lectures in morbid anatomy, which he began at Guy?s Hospital in 1827. The notes for his lectures over the years became the basis for the present book, which established his reputation as a member of the distinguished school of morbid anatomists connected with Guy?s Hospital. Hodgkin made a number of original observations in the course of his lectures, although in many cases others put them into print before him.Hodgkin gave an impetus to the study of pathology which extended to many aspects of the subject. His extensive lectures included not just the changes which occur to the body after the death, but external injury, the working of poisons, and other forensic details.G&M 2290.

        The American shooter's manual, comprising such plain and simple rules, as are necessary to introduce the inexperienced into a full knowledge of all that relates to the dog, and the correct use of a gun; also a description of the game of this country.

      Philadelphia: Carey, Lea & Carey 12mo (18.5 cm; 7.125"). [2] ff., pp. [ix]–248, [1] p., [1 (errata)] f., [3 (ads)] ff.; frontis., 2 plts.. 1827 The first American illustrated sporting book and the first American sporting book written by an American. Only one sporting book published in America preceded it: The Sportsman's Companion (NY,1783; later editions Burlington [NJ], 1791, and Philadelphia, 1793), "by a gentleman, who has made shooting his favorite amusement upwards of twenty-six years, in Great-Britain, Ireland, and North-America." Kester deals almost exclusively with game birds and waterfowl native to the Delaware Valley that surrounds Philadelphia: wild turkeys, partridge, snipe, quail, grouse, and ducks. With regard to rifles and guns he addresses cleaning, powder, wadding, etc. And when writing about dogs, in addition to notes on training and conditioning them, he offers recipes for common ailments and gun-shot wounds. The plates are signed "F. Kearny," an artist born in Perth Amboy, NJ, who studied drawing with Archibald and Alexander Robertson and engraving with Peter Maverick. From 1810 to his death in 1833 he practiced engraving in Philadelphia. There are two states of gathering "U": this copy has the typographical error "tibbon" with the stop-press correction to "ribbon" on p. 235. The volume ends with advertisements for several sporting and fishing goods suppliers. Publisher's sprinkled sheep with simple rope roll in blind on board edges, some abrasion to leather; round spine with gilt double rules forming "spine compartments," black leather title label. The usual light and scattered foxing noted in all copies, nothing more. => A very nice copy.

        Redouté - Rosa Centifolia - Rosier à cent Feuilles.

      Zogenaamde stippelgravure, in kleur gedrukt en met de hand verfraaid, uit "Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs"', uitgegeven te Parijs 1827-1833, plaat nr. 117 gegraveerd door Langlois, naar tekeningen van Pierre-Joseph Redouté (St. Hubert 1759 '" Parijs 1840). Formaat afdruk ca. 27 x 21,5 cm (papier grootte: ca 48 x 32,4 cm). De prenten werden meestal als losse katernen aan abonnees verstuurd. In een later stadium zijn katernen tot boek gebonden, maar niet altijd. Complete boeken zijn daarom zeldzaam en een exemplaar van een dergelijk kompleet boek bevindt zich, voor zover bekend, dan ook niet in Nederland. De Koninklijke Bibliotheek in Den Haag verwijst door naar de Bibliotheque National te Parijs.Redouté was hofschilder voor Marie Antoinette en later Joséphine de Beauharnais (de eerste vrouw van Napoleon) die beroemd was om haar tuinen in Malmaison met meer dan 250 rozen soorten. Redouté werd "Artiste-en-residence"' op Malmaison in Reuill. Na de dood van Joséphine's, ging het Redouté financieel minder voor de wind. Hij wordt tekenleraar bij het Musée d'Histoire Naturelle in 1822 en ridder van het Légion d'Honneur in 1825. Redouté is met name bekend om zijn rozen en lelies, maar ook het puur om esthetische redenen uitgegeven werk voor "Choix des plus belles Fleurs" wordt alom geroemd.(Literatuur: Nissen BBI 1591; Pritzel 7456; Great Flower Books, p. 72; Dunthorne 235; Stafleu TL2 8750; Hunt Redoutéana 20.)
