        Dalhia double

      1827 - This striking originally hand-colored stipple engraving is from Pierre Joseph Redoute's Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs. The work was published in Paris in 1827 by Panckoucke. It is considered the third edition with the plate numbers added to the engravings.Redoute's name is synonymous with beauty and in the world of botanical art he is known as the best. Choix is often considered some of Redoute's most desirable work, a culmination of his impressive skill and talent. He aimed to make the composition more appealing to the upper classes which created highly decorative engravings.Redoute's fame is due in large part to his diligent effort to perfect the use of stipple engraving. This labor intensive, and therefore expensive, technique creates subtle yet stunning variations of color making it superior to the engraving alone. Each plate was created using the 'a la poupee' process in which the color was applied before the printing. Hand-finished coloring was painstakingly applied after printing.Redoute was renowned for his artistic ability and tutored such people as Queen Marie-Antoinette, Empress Josephine, Marie-Louise, and Queen Marie-Amelie. Redoute influenced a breadth of artists that followed him including Turpin, Poiteau, Bessa, and Prevost. Redoute is widely considered the finest botanical illustrator of the early 19th century, if not throughout history.The process of stipple engraving and color printing give the Redoute engravings their luminous quality. Stippling is an etching process that employs dots instead of lines to form the image, which is then color printed by applying colored inks directly to the copper plate for each impression. The use of colored inks, greens and browns to print the stems and leaves, and reds and pinks to print the flowers, create a more luminous print by eliminating the necessity to paint watercolor over a back inked image. --- Overall Very Good to Excellent Condition. There may be a few minor imperfections to be expected with age. Please review the image carefully for condition and contact us with any questions.

        Redouté - Roses: Rosa Centifolia - Rosier a? 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. 118 gegraveerd door Langlois, naar tekeningen van Pierre-Joseph Redout? (St. Hubert 1759 ?? Parijs 1840). Formaat afdruk ca. 27 x 22 cm (papier grootte: ca 49,5 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.Redout? was hofschilder voor Marie Antoinette en later Jos?phine de Beauharnais (de eerste vrouw van Napoleon) die beroemd was om haar tuinen in Malmaison met meer dan 250 rozen soorten. Redout? werd ?Artiste-en-residence?? op Malmaison in Reuill. Na de dood van Jos?phine's, ging het Redout? financieel minder voor de wind. Hij wordt tekenleraar bij het Mus?e d'Histoire Naturelle in 1822 en ridder van het L?gion d'Honneur in 1825. Redout? 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 Redout?ana 20.) Prijs: ?1.250,- (incl. 21% BTW).

        Traite de mecanique celeste

      L'Impremerie de Crapelet, Ches J. B. M. Duprat, 1827. Complete with folding plate in Volume 4, all half titles and errata; with an extra errata leaf in Volume 4, uncalled for by Horblit. Volumes I and II printed on paper watermarked "Mecanique Celeste." In prize half calf, gilt arms of Glasgow University, spines elaborately gilt with morocco labels. With prize bookplate awarding this copy to George Johnson in the class of physics, April 1910. Johnson (b.1889) was a navel architect who graduated in 1912. During World War I he worked on the battle-cruiser Renown and submarines for the Fairfield Shipbuilding and Engineering Co. A fine set. pp. First edition, first issue, first state of the author's monumental work in which all the laws of planetary motion are deduced from the concept of universal gravity. It includes all supplements found lacking in many copies. Considered a sequel to Newton's Principia, Laplace argues that the universe was really a great self-regulating machine and that the whole solar system could continue on its existing plan for an immense period of time. This was a great step forward from the Newtonian uncertainties in this area. He also offered a brilliant explanation of the secular inequalities of the mean motion of the moon about the earth, a problem which Euler and Lagrange had failed to solve. This work also contains Laplace's fundamental contribution to the subject of capillarity in which he showed for the first time that capillary phenomena could be explained by the assumption of forces between the ultimate particles of matter, varying inversely as a power higher than the square of the distance. Laplace (1749-1827), considered the Isaac Newton of France, was one of the most influential scientists in the fields of mathematics, celestial mechanics, and physics. He dedicated this major work to Bonaparte (Volume 3), who honored him with the title of Marquis. Dibner, 14; Horblit, 63; Norman, 1277; Printing & the Mind of Man, 252.

        PARADISE LOST OF MILTON

      London: Sepitmus Prowett, 1827. 2 volumes bound as one. A Very Scarce "large plate" copy of the the First Edition with the illustrations of John Martin. With the 24 very fine large full page illustrations designed and engraved in mezzotint by John Martin. Imperial 4to, in a especially handsome period binding of full plum pebbled morocco, gilt extra. The covers with thick gilt ruled frames enclosing a smaller more ornate gilt vine panel, the spine with wide flat raised bands gilt bordered between compartments with ornate gilt vine tooled decoration, two compartments boldly lettered in gilt, the thick board edges gilt ruled and with wide gilt ruled turn-ins, a.e.g. Though bound as a single volume the binder has retained the original title and half-title pages to each volume. 228; 219 pp. An extremely handsome and clean copy, the text-block very solid and sound and fresh, the tissue guards intact and the plates rich, only an occasional hint of the common foxing can be found. The binding is in excellent condition, very beautiful and especially well preserved. A very fine copy indeed. FIRST EDITION AND A WONDERFUL COPY OF THE GRAND LARGE PLATE ISSUE OF JOHN MARTIN'S ILLUSTRATED MILTON, this the issue with plates roughly 280 x 190 mm, an octavo issue with smaller plates was also produced. John Martin was one of the earliest practitioners of the mezzotint steel-engraving process, beginning his career in 1825. His subject matter tended to lean towards the spiritual and he did several engravings for illustrated bibles. His style and technique are well demonstrated in this prized work, an excellent accompaniment to Milton’s epic work. Employing this new technique Martin was able to produce plates of exquisite darkness punctuated with glorious streams of heavenly light. Martin's work has been called one of the "most significant series of British book illustrations ever to have been produced" - (Campbell) Prowett commissioned two complete sets of the plates from Martin. One set was plates measuring about 280 by 190 mm for this Imperial quarto issue. Afterwards he commissioned the second smaller (200 by 150mm) set for an Imperial octavo issue. "This book was one of the great publishing enterprises of the age . The apocalyptic romanticism of his conceptions had many sources: the monumental buildings of London, the engravings of Piranesi, published volumes of eastern views, even incandescent gas, coalpit accidents, and Brunels new Thames Tunnel. The resulting illustrations may be heterogeneous, but they are also unforgettable" -Milton Ray

Finely bound by Lauriat and Co., Boston in blue half morocco, titles and centre tool to spines, raised bands, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt. Engraved frontispieces and vignettes. A few leaves lightly spotted, an excellent set. The Spectator was one of the first British periodicals, originally published daily in 1711 and 1712. Appealing to the growing numbers of middle class traders and shop keepers in London, Addison estimated it to have been read by a tenth of the city's population, primarily in coffee shops. The content was innovative and made the gentlemanly culture of letters accessible to a wide audience for the first time. The Spectator was reprinted in book form many times and remained popular through the 19th century.

        Redouté - Roses: Rosa Centifolia - Rosier a? 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. 118 gegraveerd door Langlois, naar tekeningen van Pierre-Joseph Redout? (St. Hubert 1759 ?? Parijs 1840). Formaat afdruk ca. 27 x 22 cm (papier grootte: ca 49,5 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.Redout? was hofschilder voor Marie Antoinette en later Jos?phine de Beauharnais (de eerste vrouw van Napoleon) die beroemd was om haar tuinen in Malmaison met meer dan 250 rozen soorten. Redout? werd ?Artiste-en-residence?? op Malmaison in Reuill. Na de dood van Jos?phine's, ging het Redout? financieel minder voor de wind. Hij wordt tekenleraar bij het Mus?e d'Histoire Naturelle in 1822 en ridder van het L?gion d'Honneur in 1825. Redout? 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 Redout?ana 20.)

        Narrative of a Survey of the Intertropical and Western Coasts of Australia. Performed between the years 1818 and 1822... With an Appendix, containing various subjects relating to Hydrography and Natural History...

      London: John Murray, 1827. Two volumes, octavo, with a folding chart, 13 plates and a folding engraving; contemporary half calf, spines gilt with double labels. First edition, second issue, the first to be properly published: a very rare form of this important book was evidently issued before publication, with the publication date of 1826 on both title-pages. The book was actually published in 1827, with the title-pages reset to show that date. The book describes the important Australian coastal voyages of the Mermaid and the Bathurst. 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. King was sent from England in 1817, with Admiralty instructions to complete the survey of Australia and finish the charting begun by Flinders and Freycinet. 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 naturalist Allan Cunningham sailed with the expedition, and the narrative includes extensive comments on botanical and geological phenomena, together with nautical and hydrographic observations. 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. An important section publishes 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.Admiral Phillip Parker King, Australian-born son of the third governor Philip Gidley King, became the Navy's leading hydrographer. His coastal voyages and Oxley's expeditions inland were the great expansionary undertakings of the Macquarie era. Despatched to complete Flinders's interrupted survey and firmly to establish Great Britain's claim to the north coast, 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. Provenance: Edward Charles Stirling (1848-1919, anthropologist on the Horn expedition into Central Australia), with bookplates; John Warren Bakewell (1847-1923, South Australian lawyer), with bookplates; private collection (Sydney). Bindings a little rubbed but attractive; joints wearing but sides firmly held.

        Mémoire sur la théorie mathématique des phénomènes électrodynamiques...

      Paris: Firmin Didot, 1827. 1st Edition. Soft cover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Mémoire sur la théorie mathématique des phénomènes électrodynamiques, uniquement déduite de l'expérience, dans lequel se trouvent réunis les Mémoires que M. Ampère a communiqués à l'Académie royale des sciences, dans les séances des 4 et 26 décembre 1820, 10 juin 1822, 22 décembre 1823, 12 septembre et 23 novembre 1825. In: Mémoires de l'Académie des Sciences de l'Institut de France, Tome 6, pp. 175-388. Paris: Firmin Didot, 1827. Large 4to, 3 p.l., clxxvi, [3], 612 pp, 2 folding engr. plates. Original printed wrappers (frayed, cracked at spine, upper and lower wrapper detached, lower wrapper chipped with loss of two letters of headline adverts text) in modern cloth box. Pages untrimmed, text clean an virtually unspotted. Provenance: Harrison D. Horblit (book label). Ex Bibliotheca Mechanica. A good copy. ----Norman 50; Honeyman sale 135; DSB I, p.145. FIRST EDITION. "AMPERE'S GREATEST WORK" (DSB). "Having established a noumenal foundation for electrodynamic phenomena, Ampère's next steps were to discover the relationships between the phenomena and to devise a theory from which these relationships could be mathematically deduced. This double task was undertaken in the years 1821-1825, and his success was reported in his greatest work, the Mémoire sur la théorie mathématique des phénomènes électrodynamiques, uniquement déduite de l'expérience (1827). In this work, the PRINCIPIA OF ELECTRODYNAMICS, Ampère first described the laws of action of electric currents, which he had discovered from four extremely ingenious experiments. The measurement of electrodynamic forces was very difficult, although it could be done, as J.-B. Riot and Felix Savart had shown in their formulation of the Biot-Savart law. Ampère realized, however, that much greater accuracy could be achieved if the experiments could be null experiments, in which the forces involved were in equilibrium." (DSB I p. 145). "This volume was not published until 1827." (Honeyman, 135). - Also present in this volume of the Mémoire is an important work by NAVIER "Mémoire sur les lois du mouvement des fluids." (Roberts & Trent, p. 2). This classic paper on fluid mechanics, contains his calculations about fluid flow and gives his equations for motion of a viscous fluid. Also discovered by Stokes, these calculations are known today as the Navier-Stokes Equations. Navier analyzed the motion of a fluid in much the same fashion as Euler, but considered in addition a hypothetical attraction or repulsion between adjacent molecules. - "Poisson's "Mémoire sur la théorie du magnétisme en mouvement" concerns attractive force and formulates new equations for the solution of problems therein. This work influenced the researches of Green (1828) and Gauss (1829). Also in this volume is his "Mémoire sur le calcul numerique des integrals définies" in which he sets out to improve the method of quadratures ... "The following memoirs are also of interest: Legendre's "Recherches sur quelques objets d'analyse indéterminée et particulièrement sur le théoreme de Fermat"; 'Laplace's "Mémoires sur le développement de l'anomalie vraie et du rayon vecteur elliptique, en séries ordonnées suivant les puissances de l'excentricité;" as well as Cauchy's "Mémoire sur les développements des fonctions en séries périodiques"... "The second part of the volume contains a history of the Academy with Fourier's elegy for William Herschel and Cuvier's for Duhamel." (Roberts &Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, p. 2). Fine.

        Catalogus numorum Cuficorum in numophylacio academico Upsaliensi.

      Uppsala, Regiae Academiar typographi, 1827. 4:o. (4),+ XVI,+ 32 s. Tryckt på blått skrivpapper. Oskuren i samtida stänkmarmorerat pappband. Titel med svart bläck på frampärmen. Något nött rygg. Dedikation till C. J. Tornberg, "amico suo", från förf. Esaias Tegnér d.y.:s namnteckning, daterad 1878, och exlibris. Hesse 1538. Bokhandelsupplagan, med det 16-sidiga förordet som Hesse endast nämner för dissertationsupplagan. En katalog över de kufiska, dvs arabiska mynten i Uppsala universitets Mynt- och medaljkabinett utgiven av Johan Henrik Schröder (1791-1857) som sedan 1820 var prefekt över samlingen. Den är utgiven med tryckt dedikation till J. Hallenberg och C. M. Frähn. Mycket fin proveniens! Carl Johan Tornberg (1807-77) var orientalist och arabist och en framstående auktoritet på den orientaliska numismatikens område och så småningom professor i österländska språk vid Lunds universitet. Han gav själv 1848 ut den motsvarande katalogen över Kungl. myntkabinettets i Stockholm samlingar av arabiska mynt, "Numi Cufici regii numophylacii Holmiensis". 1827 är han dock fortfarande student i Uppsala.
