        Paris et ses environs: Promenades pittoresques

      Paris: Louis Janet; printed by Jules Didot , [1827]. Boards. Fine/A sweetly illustrated account of Paris during the Bourbon Restoration, when the Champs-Élysées was lined with saplings, and the Arc de Triomphe was unfinished. The engraved scenes charm with fine detail and attractive hand-coloring. The author and date of publication are not given, but bibliographers agreed early on to attribute the text to Charles Malo, the polymath who was Louis Janet's writer-in-residence. We have no information about the artist or engraver, who were probably contracted to the printer, Jules Didot. Janet issued a trade edition with uncolored plates, and a very limited deluxe edition with the plates colored by hand. We follow the lead of several c19 French bibliographers in cataloguing the book as an 18mo, with gatherings in sixes. The volume is in ace condition with the nearly unobtainable original slipcase. . 18mo (14cm); vi, 212 pages, hand-colored engraved title page and 10 hand-colored engraved plates. Wove stock. About fine in original decorated boards (showing the Panthéon within a sculptural scroll surround) and original cardboard slipcase. Some shelf wear to slipcase, small blemish on upper board, and the stock has darkened slightly, else fine and extremely rare in such condition with slipcase present.

        Essays on currency and absenteeism, &c. &c. with strictures on Mr. Drummond's pamphlet, entitled 'Elementary propositions on the currency'

      Liverpool: printed for G. and J. Robinson; and sold by Hatchard & Son, Piccadilly; and J.M. Richardson, Cornhill, London. [1827]. 8vo., 188pp., with an errata slip (11 errata) tipped in, with two ms notes in ink referring to Sraffa's Ricardo> on pp.102 and 108, original boards, uncut, with original printed spine label, this chipped however. An excellent copy with the 19th century ownership inscription of Henry Booth>* on front free endpaper. First and only edition and very scarce. Goldsmiths 25299. Kress C.1885. Cotton & Little p.147. Masui p.60. Not in Einaudi, Mattioli, Hollander or Amex. The author, who seems to have been a Liverpool businessman, is now known only by two publications, both astute financial essays. One of these is his Essays on currency,> the other his short paper entitled On the reduction of the rate of discount by the Bank of England> (24pp., London, 1828). Gardiner's mastery of current economic thoughts is evident throughout: he is clearly familiar with the published writings of such as Lord Liverpool, Henry Burgess, Colonel Torrens, James Mill, J.B. Say, Cobbett, Huskisson, Robert Mushett and several others. But his pen is mostly directed at Henry Drummond, Thomas Tooke, J.R. McCulloch and, to a lesser extent, David Ricardo. Gardiner's comments on Ricardo are both bold and uncompromising. Thus, referring to a statement in Ricardo's Principles> about the circulation of bank paper, Gardiner declares that he 'cannot agree with Mr. Ricardo', and explains why (pp. 54-55). In another place the author suggests that 'the Ricardo school is here (no unusual thing) at variance with itself' and refers to the 'grand doctrines of the Ricardo school'. And he explains his use of the phrase, 'Ricardo school'. 'I say, 'Ricardo School', because the new sect of political economists has been so denominated; though I think it is rather hard on the fame of Mr Ricardo, to be held responsible for all the reveries of those who choose to call themselves his disciples'. [p.174]. Gardiner's whole paper seems to show him to be an intelligent provincial commentator on the London-centric economic view who was prepared fearlessly to challenge not only the Bank of England, but also the widely accepted opinions of Drummond, Tooke, and McCulloch and even of Ricardo himself. * Henry Booth (1788-1869), Liverpool corn merchant, businessman and engineer, particularly noted as a pioneer in railways.

        Seneca Chief Young King signs a receipt for his "individual annuity" from the U.S. Government as per an Act of Congress for his services in the War of 1812. No other examples have appeared at major auctions in over 40 years!

      Buffalo, New York, June 11, 1827. 8" x 5.5". "Rare Manuscript Document Signed ""X"", 1p, 8"" x 5.5"". Buffalo, June 11, 1827, additionally signed, ""Chas. F. Coit,"" ""Jellis Clute,"" and ""Horatio Jones."" as witnesses. Horizontal mid-fold expertly strengthened on verso, infill in blank upper right corner. Fine condition.In full, ""Dollars 100. Received of the United States by the hands of Jasper Parrish Sub Agent to the Six Nations of Indians, One Hundred Dollars, in full for my individual annuity for the first and second quarters of 1827, per Act of Congress of 16th April 1827 [sic].""Young King (1760?"1835) or Koyengquahtah was a ""Hoyaneh"" or revered traditional chief of the Seneca nation. He was born in the village of Canandaigua, Seneca nation in 1760. He was a descendent of Old Smoke or Old King who was the a leader of the war party that attached the Wyoming Valley settlements in 1778 (a.k.a. the ""Wyoming Massacre."") Young King grew to adulthood during the tumultuous time of the American War of Independence during which the Seneca were allies of the British. He fled to Fort Niagara with his mother during Major General John Sullivan's 1779 Campaign. Young King was later elected war chief and was a renowned warrior, a wise counselor and was possessed of high social qualities among his own people and the Americans.Young King was a delegate to and a reluctant signatory of the ?Treaty of Big Tree? on September 15, 1797, between the Seneca nation and the United States. The treaty opened up the territory west of the Genesee River for settlement and established ten reservations, perpetual annuities, and hunting and fishing rights for the Seneca in Western New York. He then moved to the reservation at Buffalo Creek. During the War of 1812, Young King fought again, but this time on the side of the United States?"for which he was awarded a $200 annuity for the remainder of his life. On April 26, 1816 (Parrish's secretary must have been in a hurry when he penned this receipt), Congress approved a $200 annuity for Young King, ""as compensation for the brave and meritorious services which he rendered the United States in the late war with Great Britain, and as a provision for the wound and disability he received in the performance of those services."" (The Public Statues at Large..., 1846, 6:167) A heavy drinker, Young King foreswore alcohol after an accident with a scythe resulted in the loss of one of his arms. He converted to Christianity, and during the 1830s he supported the sale of Seneca land to the Ogden Land Company. Jasper Parrish (1767-1836), who was distributing the monies to Young King, was born in Windham, Connecticut, but by 1778 he had moved with his family to the Delaware River in the Southern Tier of New York State. That year, he and his father were captured by a band of Munsee Indians. Father and son were separated during their captivity, and while his father was exchanged as a prisoner of war and was able to return to his family, the young Jasper remained in captivity, and in 1780 was adopted into the family of David Hill, a Mohawk chief. In 1784, Parrish was surrendered with other captives, as part of the Treaty of Fort Stanwix. During his time in captivity, Parrish had become fluent in the Delaware and Mohawk languages, and struggled to relearn his native English. In 1790, he became an interpreter for the U.S. government and assisted in a number of important treaty negotiations including the Pickering Treaty at Canandaigua in 1794 which gave the Iroquois full title and sovereignty over their lands. Parish continued in his interpretive role, as well as serving as an agent between the Iroquois and the state and federal governments handling a variety of business transactions and negotiations.Over 50 years ago, autograph pioneer Charles Hamilton mentioned Young Chief in ""Collecting Autographs and Manuscripts""(Norman, Oklahoma: University of Oklahoma Press, 1961), the definitive book in the field, stating ""You will occasionally find Indian signatures on annuity receipts. Little Turtle, Red Jacket, Cornplanter, Young King, and other noted chiefs of the time are usually represented in autograph collections with X marks by which they acknowledged payment of their government pensions."" Fifty years later, Young King's autograph rarely appears on the market."

Dos avec des usures marquées, manque sur la coiffe supérieure du vol. 1.Claude Servais Mathias Marie Roland Pouillet (1790 - 1868) physicien français. En 1825, il invente la boussole des tangentes pour pouvoir mesurer des courants puissant. Entre 1837 et 1838, il réalise grâce à l'invention du pyrhéliomètre les premières mesures quantitatives de la chaleur émise par le soleil. Ses principaux travaux portent sur la compressibilité des gaz et surtout sur les lois expérimentales relatives à l'intensité du courant électrique dans un circuit fermé. Il a su également préciser la notion de résistance électrique et montrer que les générateurs sont composés d'une force électromotrice pure et d'une résistance intérieure. On lui doit la loi de Pouillet, déduite de manière expérimentale.

        Préludes poétiques, par M. de Loy, Membre de l'Académie Provinciale ; précédés d'une introduction par M. Charles Durand, Secrétaire Perpétuel. [ Edition originale ]

      De l'Imprimerie de C. Coque 1827 - 1 vol. in-8 reliure de l'époque demi-maroquin vert, dos lisse orné en long, De l'Imprimerie de C. Coque, Lyon, 1827, 2 ff., xxxv-219 pp. Rare exemplaire de l'édition originale. Etat très satisfaisant (rel. frottée lég. en dos et plus fort. en coiffes, bon état par ailleurs). Sainte-Beuve consacra un article commun à Loyson, Polonius et Aimé de Loy (RDDM, II, 1840). Né en 1798, mort en 1834, "sa vie, la plus errante et la plus diverse qu'on puisse imaginer, n'apparaît que par lambeaux déchirés dans ses vers". "Sorti d'un village des Vosges aux frontières de la Franche-Comté, il se réclama toujours de cette dernière province, par amour sans doute des poëtes qui en sont l'honneur, par souvenir surtout de Nodier et des muses voyageuses". L'épisode le plus mémorable de la vie de ce vrai troubadour "fut sans contredit son voyage au Brésil ; las du ménage et du petit magasin où il avait essayé de se confiner, le voilà tout d'un coup dans la baie de Rio-Janeiro. C'était en 1822 ; don Pedro, empereur Constitutionnel, accueillit De Loy, le fit rédacteur officiel de ses projets libéraux. Outre le journal qu'il rédigeait [ l'Estrella Brasileira ], De Loy chantait l'Impératrice, ; il devint commandeur de l'ordre du Christ, il était gentilhomme de la chambre". Jamais fixé malgré ses serments, il revint en France en 1824. Ballon d'essai d'une Académie Provinciale protestant contre la centralisation parisienne, ses "Préludes Poétiques" attirèrent peu l'attention. Mais dans ces 18 Préludes et d'abondantes notes, on découvre tout le personnage. En voici quelques titres : A M. de Chateaubriand ; Les Açores ; Les Vergers de Choully, à M. Claparède ; A Mlle Delphine Gay ; A M. de Lamartine ; La Liberté, à dom Pedro ; Le Brésil ; Les Franc-Comtois, etc. Langue: Français [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Viaggi di La Perouse Intorno al Mondo

      Livorno: Tipografia Vignozzi, 1827. Three volumes, duodecimo, three frontispieces and three plates, all with good contemporary handcolouring; three leaves a little short at the margins (intrinsic printer's error), a little foxing, very good in quarter roan with gilt lettering, marbled boards with vellum tips. Attractive early Italian edition of La Pérouse's voyage, containing six charming coloured plates (three of which are not recorded in the standard bibliographies).This edition was part of a larger collection of voyages published in uniform duodecimo format with the series title Biblioteca Istruttiva e Piacevole ovvero raccolta dei più interessanti viaggi. Forbes confirms that each of the voyages was available separately. The spines in this set number the volumes within the series. This set contains three plates not recorded in the standard bibliographies. The first is a costume study captioned 'Uomo e Donna volgari della Concezione'; the second a view of Macao and the third depicts the death of botanist and savant Robert de Lamanon amidst a melee in Samoa during 1787. Neither Ferguson, Forbes not McLaren note the three plates additional to the frontispieces, although Forbes had not sighted the book. Ferguson cites his own copy, while McLaren consulted the Nan Kivell copy held by the National Library. Ferguson, 1131; Forbes, 673; McLaren 26.

        Narrative of a Survey of the Intertropical and Western Coasts of Australia. Performed between the years 1818 and 1822

      London: John Murray, 1827. Two volumes, octavo, with nine aquatint views, large folding map, smaller engraved chart and three engraved natural history plates (one folding), untrimmed and partially unopened, some browning, noticeably to the plates, but an attractive set in modern green half morocco gilt. First edition of this great book, recounting the Australian coastal voyages of the Mermaid and the Bathurst.Admiral Phillip Parker King (1791-1856), Australian-born son of the third governor Philip Gidley King, became the British navy's leading hydrographer. His Australian coastal voyages, together with Oxley's expeditions inland, represented the great expansionary undertakings of the Macquarie era. King charted the greater part of the west, north and north-east coasts and also carried out important surveys in the area of the Barrier Reef. His hydrographical work is still the basis of many of the modern charts for the areas he surveyed.From 1815 or so, British interest in the largely uncharted northern and north-western coast of Australia had increased, partly out of concern at the territorial ambitions of other nations, especially the Dutch and the French. Much in the same way that Flinders was commissioned due to English concerns over the Baudin expedition, King was given his command because of anxiety about the planned Freycinet voyage. As a direct result, King was sent from England in 1817, with Admiralty instructions to complete the survey of Australia and finish the charting begun by Flinders and Baudin. By 1824-25 he had issued a series of eight large charts showing the northern coasts, to be followed with this complete printed journal of his expedition. The engraved views were taken from King's own sketches.The work also includes significant natural history essays, including work by John Edward Gray, William Sharp Macleay and William Henry Fitton, three senior British scientists. Easily the most interesting section, however, is the long essay by Allan Cunningham, 'A Few General Remarks on the Vegetation of certain coasts of Terra Australis...'. Cunningham had sailed with King, and so this section has the added interest of eyewitness reportage, as well as comparisons between the botany of east and west coasts. Cunningham's report is supplemented by notes from Robert Brown, and the whole section concludes with three natural history plates.This is the regular 1827 issue: a few copies survive with an 1826 date on the title-pages, without any other points of difference (the 1826 issue appears to be a presentation issue of some kind, as is attested by the fact that where seen they are often accompanied by some sort of manuscript dedication).

        Shigurf namah-i-velaet, or, excellent intelligence concerning Europe: being the travels of Mirza Itesa Modeen in Great Britain and France.

      London, James Duncan for John Taylor, 1827.. XI, (1), 233, (1) pp. With a lithogr. frontispiece in original hand colour. Contemp. auburn calf with giltstamped rules to boards; leading edges gilt; spine rebacked. All edges gilt. 8vo.. First edition of this account of a Middle Eastern civil servant's visit to Britain in 1765, translated from the original Persian manuscript by James Edward Alexander. Born in India, Itesa Modeen learned Persian and entered the service of the British. When Shah Alam wanted to send letters and gifts to King George III in England it was decided that these would be taken by a British army officer, accompanied by Modeen as his translator and secretary. Modeen wrote a record of his journey recording the sights he saw and the excited reactions of Londoners to the unusual sight of a high class "Hindoostanee" (as he called himself) visitor. It was not until some 60 years later that his manuscript account was translated and published. The Mirza spent about almost three years on his trip to Europe, staying mostly in London but also visiting Scotland and Oxford, before returning to his native India. - Insignificant foxing to title and final leaf. From the library of Sir Richard Strachey (1817-1908), the Indian administrator and father of Lytton Strachey (his engr. armorial bookplate to pastedown); later in the collection of Christopher Jower (bookplate to flyleaf). - OCLC 8868736.

Dos avec des usures marquées, manque sur la coiffe supérieure du vol. 1. Claude Servais Mathias Marie Roland Pouillet (1790 - 1868) physicien français. En 1825, il invente la boussole des tangentes pour pouvoir mesurer des courants puissant. Entre 1837 et 1838, il réalise grâce à l'invention du pyrhéliomètre les premières mesures quantitatives de la chaleur émise par le soleil. Ses principaux travaux portent sur la compressibilité des gaz et surtout sur les lois expérimentales relatives à l'intensité du courant électrique dans un circuit fermé. Il a su également préciser la notion de résistance électrique et montrer que les générateurs sont composés d'une force électromotrice pure et d'une résistance intérieure. On lui doit la loi de Pouillet, déduite de manière expérimentale.

        Il Milione di Marco Polo testo di lingua del Secolo Decimoterzo. [with] Storia delle relazioni vicendevoli dell'Europa e dell'Asia dalla decadenza di Roma fino alla distruzione del Califfato.

      Giuseppe Pagani, Firenze 1827 - Four quarto volumes and two separate maps housed in the publisher's folding card case (the map of greater Asia measuring 655 x 890 mm.); some scattered foxing (also affecting the map), Portolan map and portfolio expertly repaired; a most attractive set as issued in original printed wrappers. A significant edition of Marco Polo, accompanied by a large map depicting the entirety of Asia from Arabia to China, with the routes of the great traveller subtly handcoloured.This edition presents Marco Polo in his own words, drawing upon previously neglected thirteenth century manuscripts to provide the most accurate version possible. The travels of Marco Polo were first published in 1477 in Nuremberg, almost two hundred years they were was written. Subsequent editions were plagued by misprints, inaccuracies and typographical errors which were perpetuated for centuries. This publication is an important attempt to offer the best and most faithful edition possible, with material drawn from original medieval manuscript sources revealing the 'vernacular' language of a merchant traveller unfolding the splendours of the east. The publisher, Giovanni Battista Baldelli Boni (1766-1831), was an Italian officer, statesman and scholar of varied pursuits. Prior to his fascination with China and the travels of Marco Polo, Boni had dabbled in the philosophy of Machiavelli and Petrarch, while authoring essays on Eleusis and Zoroastrian cult practice in Persia. However, this was probably his most ambitious intellectual project. To maintain both the scholarly integrity and intelligibility of the text for his readers, Boni cross referenced the early manuscript material with the widely disseminated text published by Ramusio in his famous Venetian voyage compendium of the late sixteen century (which had long been treated as the standard text). Furthermore, the Marco Polo narrative is accompanied by a lengthy history of European relations with the powers of China and Central Asia compiled by Boni himself.This is a lovely example with the text uncut as issued in the publisher's printed wrappers and the map within its original folding card case. The large map of Asia is notable for its scope and detail, portraying the entire continental mass from Arabia through to the Korean peninsula. The wanderings of Marco Polo are marked in variously coloured inks. Also included in the folding card case is an additional map dated Venice 1827, being an engraved copy of a Portolan chart titled Carta della Africa tratta fedelmente dall'originale Portulano Mediceo Laurenziano.

The large map of Asia is notable for its scope and detail, portraying the entire continental mass from Arabia through to the Korean peninsula. The wanderings of Marco Polo are marked in variously coloured inks. Also included in the folding card case is an additional map dated Venice 1827, being an engraved copy of a Portolan chart titled Carta della Africa tratta fedelmente dall'originale Portulano Mediceo Laurenziano.
