        Autograph letter from Thomas Telford, engineer

      1 page dated 20th Sept 1827 to 'Roger Hopkins' [1775-1847] a fellow engineer of Teignmouth in Devon. 'In reply to your letter of the 18th I am very glad that the bridge answers so well and as you propose presenting me with one copy of the plates, I will pay for another, therefore put my name down for two copies. I do not know what ground you can claim for a premium from the Society of Arts - I am a member but have not attended of late years. We do not give premiums but you may present a copy to the Institution, it will appear amongst the contributions, you will receive thanks, and publicity will thus be given to your design, I remain yours sincerely Thomas Telford. PS The Irish Railway belongs to a private company, and if carried on will be under the inspection and management of their own engineer... Hopkins had designed a bridge across the Teign estuary connecting Teignmouth and Shaldon, at the time the longest wooden bridge in England. It was opened on the 8th June 1827 and so Telford must, I think be referring to this in his letter. The Institution he refers to is the recently formed Institution of Civil Engineers [1818]. His status and role as President was a great boost to the Institution in its early years. Short tear to address panel where originally opened but the item in very good condition. Such letters from one of the great late 18th/early 19th century engineers are very uncommon.

      Baton Rouge, 1827. Broadside, 17 x 12 inches. Minor edge wear, light foxing, one small hole in the fourth column costing a few letters. Very good. A rare early 19th-century newspaper extra providing unique insight into life in the Deep South thirty-four years before the start of the Civil War, containing a number of advertisements for the public auction of slaves, as well as several calls for runaways. One prominent advertisement lists the names of twenty-four slaves which will be offered for sale by the Honorable Ch. Tessier. Names include Onesime, Azor, Cojo, Thalie (described as a "negro girl, aged 11 years, a creole"), and Josephine ("negress aged 30 years good domestic, Angel, her daughter aged 9 years, Basile, her son aged 7 years, Julienne, her daughter aged 3 years"). Includes conditions for payment listed at bottom. This issue of the GAZETTE reports on a number of runaway slaves, detailing the escaped slave's name, physical appearance, and owner. Public notice is also given in reference to George Killian, Senator of St. Helena Parish, who was not going to proceed to pass "an act of emancipation in favor of his negro woman slave named Philis, aged 50 years." A column headed "New Orleans Price Current" details the going price of commodities ranging from "Bale Rope" to "Wine" and includes large ads promoting the "Louisiana Catholic Church Lottery" and "Public School Lottery." An interesting footnote in the history of the BATON ROUGE GAZETTE: in 1843, the GAZETTE's editor, John Hueston, was killed in a shotgun duel with a candidate for Congress, Alcee Labranche, who believed Hueston had insulted him. An uncommon newspaper extra with important information regarding the commerce of slavery in early 19th-century Louisiana.

        The Battle of Navarino. Battle of Navarin.

      Philhellenic: London " Engraved by Robert William Smart, and Henry Pyall, after drawings made by Sir John Theophilus Lee under the immediate inspection of Capt. Lord Vis. Inglesre".. Printed by: I Fisher. c1828. Aquatint of the Battle of Navarino by John Theophilus Lee, The !st edition with dedication; To His Royal Highness William Henry Duke of Clarence. ... With text below describing the battle in English and French. 'This Celebrated Action was fought on the 20th. October 1827, in the Bay of Navarin on the western Coast of the Morea, by the Combined Squadrons of Great Britain, France and Russia; under the Command of the British Vice Admiral Sir Edward Codrington, assisted by the French Rear Admiral Chevalier de Rigny, and the Russian Rear Admiral the Count Heiden, against the united Turkish, Egyptian, and Tunisean Fleets, comprising 65 Vessels of War, viz. 3 of the Line, 4 Double Banked Frigates, 15 Frigates, 26 from 20 to 24 Guns, 12 smaller Vessels, 5 Fire Ships. The Combined Allied Squadrons consisted of 10 Sail of the Line, 10 Frigates, 7 Sloops, and Brigs. The Battle terminated at the end of 4 Hours, in the complete destruction of the Enemies Forces. The British Loss on this Memorable day was 75 Killed, 197 Wounded. The French 43 Killed. 144 Wounded. The Russians 59 Killed, 139 Wounded. The Turkish admiral's Ship which was one of the Vessels opposed to the Asia, bearing the Flag of the British Admiral, lost upwards of 650 Men Killed and Wounded.'. marked "Proof copy". The view,the aftermath of a naval action; the British ships Asia, Genoa and Albion in the middle ground, to the right several Turkish vessels, including the Admiral's ship Sirene, dismasted and in flames; survivors clinging to wreckage and to a rescue cutter, in the foreground. List of the Combined fleet's ships and fire power below. Evenly toned; some spotting mainly to blank margins, and light spotting to sky; damp stain to edge of lower right margin and lower margin just entering text; upper left corner lacking and short tear, repaired, to left blank margin [ far from image]. The Battle of Navarino was fought off the west coast of the Peloponnesus on October 20th 1827 and effectively ended Turkish resistance to Greek independence with the destruction of the Turkish-Egyptian fleet by the British- Russian- French fleet under Vice Admiral Sir Edward Codrington, hero of Trafalgar. The news of Navarino made Codrington a hero twice over in the eyes of the general British public. But in Whitehall, senior naval and diplomatic echelons were appalled by the outcome of his campaign. It was considered that Codrington had grossly exceeded his instructions by provoking a showdown with the Ottoman fleet Initially, official disapproval of Codrington had to be restrained because of the admiral's huge popularity with the public. The Admiralty's revenge took petty form, such as its refusal, despite repeated requests by Codrington, to pay his crews their traditional prize-money from the sale of captured Ottoman treasure and goods. Meanwhile, Wellington was biding his time until he felt it was politically safe to remove Codrington from the Mediterranean theatre. Finally, in June 1828, the Admiralty announced that Codrington was being relieved of his command (although he remained in acting-command until his replacement arrived in August). Although the King felt obliged by public opinion to grant Codrington the high honour of the Grand Cross of the Bath, the Admiralty's failure to give him another operational command in his remaining decade of service or to promote him to full Admiral until shortly before his retirement from the Navy in 1837, were eloquent testimony to his fall from favour. John Theophilus Lee 1787-1843. Lee joined the Royal Navy in 1796 at the age of 9. He saw action at the Battle of Cape St Vincent in 1797 and then the Battle of the Nile the following year, as a midshipman aboard HMS Swiftsure. He passed for Lieutenant in 1806 and married in 1807. Lee then resigned from the Navy in 1809 and became a civilian attached to the Admiralty as head of the personnel department. Subsequently knighted, Lee retired to Bedhampton, where he wrote a book: Memoirs of the life and services of Sir J Theophilus Lee, of The Elms, Hampshire. He died in Torquay in 1843. Lee's professional painting career started at the Portsmouth Naval Academy from 1800-1803, where several of his drawings were used for engravings appearing in the Naval Chronicle. These included views of Alexandria, the Naval Academy, and the Greenwich Asylum. The Naval Chronicle also printed an engraving after JT Lee of a scene of the aftermath of the Battle of Trafalgar. William IV (William Henry; 21 August 1765 - 20 June 1837) was King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and of Hanover from 26 June 1830 until his death. William, the third son of George III and younger brother and successor to George IV, was the last king and penultimate monarch of Britain's House of Hanover. He served in the Royal Navy in his youth and was, both during his reign and afterwards, nicknamed the "Sailor King". He served in North America and the Caribbean, but saw little actual fighting. Since his two older brothers died without leaving legitimate issue, he inherited the throne when he was 64 years old. In 1827 George Canning, the Prime Minister, appointed William, Duke of Clarence, and Heir Presumptive, to the office of Lord High Admiral, which had been in commission (that is, exercised by a board rather than by a single individual) since 1709. While in office, the Duke had repeated conflicts with his Council, which was composed of Admiralty officers. Things finally came to a head in 1828 when the Lord High Admiral put to sea with a squadron of ships, leaving no word of where they were going, and remaining away for ten days. The King, through the Prime Minister, by now Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, requested his resignation; the Duke of Clarence complied. Despite the difficulties the Duke experienced, he did considerable good as Lord High Admiral. He abolished the cat o' nine tails for most offences other than mutiny, attempted to improve the standard of naval gunnery and required regular reports of the condition and preparedness of each ship. He commissioned the first steam warship and advocated more. British Museum :1873,0510.175. Philhellenic Battle of Navarino

        Tulpen - Pierre-Joseph Redouté, 1827-1833.

      TULPEN UIT EEN VAN EEN DE FRAAISTE BOEKEN OVER BLOEMEN OOIT GEPUBLICEERD?Tulipe de Gesner / Tulipa Gesneriana?. Stippelgravure vervaardigd door Langlois 1827-1833 voor ?Choix des plus belles fleurs? naar het ontwerp van Pierre-Joseph Redout?, gedrukt in kleur en met de hand met waterverf bijgewerkt. Afm. (plaatrand): 26 x 21 cm.Deze tulp is vernoemd naar Conrad Gessner (1516-65), een natuurkundige die in 1561 de eerste wetenschappelijke beschrijving en afbeeldingen van een tulp publiceerde.Redout? (1759 - 1840) kwam uit een schildersfamilie uit de Ardennen. In 1782 gaat hij naar Parijs waar hij aanvankelijk decors ontwerpt voor het Th??tre Italien. In zijn vrije tijd tekent hij planten. Hij komt in contact met de Nederlandse professor Gerard van Spaendonck (1746 - 1822), verbonden aan de Jardin du Roi en wordt diens assistent en leerling.Redout?s talent breekt door en hij wordt hofschilder voor Marie Antoinette en later Jos?phine de Beauharnais (de eerste vrouw van Napoleon), die beroemd was om haar tuinen rondom kasteel Malmaison. Redout? werd artist-in-residence op Malmaison en produceert daar ?Les Liliac?es?. Met 486 kleurengravures in 8 delen z?n meest omvangrijke werk. Ook maakt hij ?Les Roses?, een eveneens indrukwekkend en belangrijk boek met daarin 170 platen en beschrijvingen van rozen.Na de dood van Jos?phine, ging het Redout? finaniceel minder voor de wind. Hij wordt tekenleraar bij het Mus?e d?Histoire Naturelle in 1822, maar wordt na de revolutie van 1830 vervolgens weer Peintre du Cabinet de la Reine Marie-Am?lie. Zijn laatste grote werken ?Choix des plus belles fleurs? en ?Choix de soixante roses d?di?es a la reine des Belges? completeren zijn imposante oeuvre.Redout? ondervond tijdens zijn leven weinig last de grote politieke onrust van de tijd. Revolutie en restauratie en de verschillende heersers die het voortbracht, stemden allen in met het werk van deze fenomenale botanische kunstenaar.In deze stippel gravure van tulpen toont Redout? zich op zijn best, waarbij hij zijn artistieke kunnen heeft gecombineerd met zijn vaardigheid als natuurwaarnemer.Prijs: ?1.350,-.

        Manual de malacologie et de conchiliologie. Paris.F.G. Levrault , Libraire1825-1827.

      1827. 2 voll. (testo + atlante), in 8°, bella leg. coeva in mz. perg. con angoli, titoli e fregi impressi in nero sui dorsi, pp.VIII-664, 2 tabelle più volte ripiegayt (testo), pp.(4) e 109 belle tavv. (atlante), inc. in rame, con sistema punteggiato (stipple engraving), eseguite dai migliori incisori del tempo, su dis. di J.B. Prêtre, sotto la direzione di P.J.F.Turpin, raffigurano centinaia di specie di animali con conchiglia. Fioriture dovute al tipo di carta, per il resto un bell' esemplare, non comune. Agassiz I, p.309. Caprotti II, p.9. Nissen ZBI, 391. Importante lavoro di malacologia, del quale esistono poche copie, assai rare colorate a mano. L'Autore (1777-1850) era un famoso zoologo francese, giunto a Parigi da giovane entrò ben presto sotto la protezione del grande Cuvier, dal quale venne aiutato nell'ottenere nel 1812 la cattedra di anatomia e zoologia. In seguito però tra i due sorsero inevitabili incomprensioni e inimicizie. Nel 1830 succedette alla cattedra di storia naturale del Museo parigino a Lamarck e alla morte di Cuvier (1832) a quella di anatomia comparata, che mantenne per ben 18 anni, fino alla morte. L'opera in questione è divisa in tre parti, di cui la prima è di grande importanza storica, in quanto tratta, con ampi riferimenti bibliografici, la nascita e lo sviluppo della malacologia. Come è noto, ai tempi di Blainville, all'interno del tipo Malacozoare (o Animali Molluschi) si includevano anche i Foraminiferi, i Brachiopodi e alcuni generi di Crostacei Cirripedi. Questi ultimi inseriti dall'Autore nel sottotipo dei Malentozoares..

        Travels of the Russian Mission through Mongolia to China, and Residence in Peking, in the Year 1820-1821.

      London: for Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, and Green,, 1827. With Corrections and Notes by Julius von Klaproth. 2 volumes, octavo (224 x 139 mm). Mid-20th-century red half calf, raised bands between gilt rules to spines, compartments lettered in gilt, red cloth sides, edges untrimmed. Lithographic frontispiece to each volume (that in vol. 2 a folding chart of Peking), folding map. Recent bookplates of Robert and Eve Gregory, Walterston. Spotting to edges, prelims and occasionally to text block, mainly restricted to the margins only, a few other marks, map foxed, with a short split along central fold. A good copy. First edition in English of reputedly the first individually published Russian account of China, originally published in German as Reise nach Pekin (1825-6). Timkowski (1790-1875) was "royal overseer" on the tenth Russian mission to Peking, where the Russian government had maintained a school and church since 1728. His account is notable for its detailed description of his itinerary, in particular for the section of the journey made through the pass of Kalgan (Zhangjiakou) on the border between Mongolia and China. According to the translator's preface, the only earlier Russian travel-account of China to have been published was the journal of Lawrence Lange, who accompanied the mission in 1727, though that work was published as part of Pallas's Nordische Beiträge. The translator was Hannibal Evans Lloyd, who worked from the French edition published earlier the same year. Klaproth (1783-1835) was an accomplished German orientalist and a specialist in Caucasian languages.

        Der barycentrische Calcül ein neues Hülfsmittel zur analytischen Behandlung der Geometrie.

      Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1827. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (213 x 125 mm). [2], xxiv, 454 [3] pp., including errata leaf and 4 folding engraved plates bound at end. Near contemporary moire cloth, spine with gilt-lettered label, red-sprinkled edges (slight rubbing to extremities, short split to cloth at head of upper hinge). Text little age-toned and with occasional brown spotting. Illegible faint circular ink stamp at foot of title-page. A fine and unmarked copy. ----DSB IX, p.430; Darmstaedter 372; NDB XVII, p.601; Poggendorff II, p.165. - FIRST EDITION of Möbius' "greatest work, which later became a mathematical classic... not only his most important mathematical publication, but also the source of much of his later work. He had come upon the fundamental ideas for his barycentric calculus in 1818 and by 1821 decided that they merited book-length treatment. In an appendix to his 1823 astronomical treatise, he had given a first discussion of his new method. As he stated in the foreword to his 1827 treatise, the concept of the centroid had been recognized by Archimedes as a useful tool for geometrical investigations." (DSB). Möbius is best remembered for his discovery of the Möbius strip in 1858, a non-orientable two-dimensional surface with only one side when embedded in three-dimensional Euclidean space. Erste Ausgabe von Möbius' Hauptwerk. "Der 'barycentrische Calcul' eröffnete den heute zum Allgemeingut gewordenen Umgang mit homogenen Koordinaten in der projektiven Geometrie. Felix Klein sah in Möbius einen Vorläufer seines 'Erlanger Programms'" (NDB). Der Name des Gauss-Schülers Möbius ist heute mit einer ganzen Reihe wichtiger mathematischer Begriffe und Entwicklungen verbundenen, darunter das von ihm 1858 entdeckte 'Möbiusband'. - Visit our website for additional images and information.
