        1827 Cuvier Animal Kingdom Illustrated Fossils Birds Native American Indians 16v

      London : Printed for G.B. Whittaker, 1827-1835. - 1827 Cuvier Animal Kingdom Illustrated Fossils Birds Native American Indians 16v The Father of Paleontology / Illustrated over 800 plates! Often called ‘The Father of Paleontology,’ Georges Cuvier was a French zoologist remembered for his plethora of essays and writings, most importantly ‘Le Regne Animal,’ or ‘The Animal Kingdom.’ First appearing in 1817, this book was a culmination of Cuvier’s life’s research on living and fossil animals as well as insects. This work is unique in that many similar anthologies writing during this time period were composed by multiple authors. ‘The Animal Kingdom’ was solely by Cuvier, though it was translated into English by others. Cuvier’s work played an important role in identifying whether or not animals were truly extinct. (Waggoner). This book illustrates many of those animals, both living and extinct, with hundreds of illustrations over the course of the 16-volume set. The section on mammals is particularly fascinating as it covers humankind – early humans, Africans, Native American tribes, and many more. According to Lowndes, “A work no less distinguished for its scientific accuracy than for it interesting details of the habits of animals.” Item number: #2463 Price: $4950 CUVIER, Georges The animal kingdom : arranged in conformity with its organization, by the Baron Cuvier, with supplementary additions to each order London : Printed for G.B.

        Sketches of Indian Field Sports: with observations of the animals: also an account of some of the customs of the inhabitants: with a description of the art of catching serpents, as practised by the conjurors, and their method of curing themselves when bitten: with remarks on hydrophobia and rabid animals. Second Edition: to which is added an account of hunting the wild boar, as followed by Europeans in Bengal and its dependencies.

      London: Published for the Author, by Robert Jennings, 1827 - Octavo. Original drab grey boards neatly rebacked to style, new label. A few old stains to boards, corners a little worn and rounded. A very good copy with the slip entitled "Description of the Frontispiece" bound in before the Preface. Engraved frontispiece after Ann Elizabeth Palmer, 4 lithograph plates of wild boar hunting (2 showing spear heads, two scenes), one page of music for a song entitled "The Hog Hunt". Second and best edition; originally published in 1822, illustrated with the frontispiece alone. Daniel Johnson (1766/7-1835), surgeon and author, "was appointed assistant surgeon in the Bengal medical service on 22 January 1789. He conducted experiments on snakebite, and later communicated his findings to his fellow Bengal surgeon James Johnson. He was promoted to surgeon on 11 March 1805, and retired from the service in 1809. He settled at Great Torrington, Devon, and in 1822 printed, with the aid of a daughter of the local bookseller, 'not more than eight and a half years old', his Sketches of Indian Field-Sports [actually the title of the second edition]. The book was dedicated to the court of directors of the Hon. East India Company" (ODNB). In his new two-page preface Johnson comments on the "number of errors [that] crept into the first publication, from the singular manner in which it was printed by a wonderfully clever child". Czech remarks: "In this early work detailing Indian sport, Johnson provides notes on elephant, buffalo, and other game, but of primary importance are his chapters on hunting tiger and leopard principally in the jungle ares of Ramghur, Rogonautpore, and Bundbissunpore. The second edition contains extensive descriptions of wild boar hunting, including four plates". An exceptional, tall copy in the original boards; uncommon, Copac cites copies at just three British and Irish institutional libraries (Durham and Manchester universities, Wellcome), OCLC adds another 15 internationally. Czech, Asian Big Game, pp. 113-14.

        Der alte Jacob mit der neuen Mütze - Peter, Nicolaus, Catharina und Michael wundern sich, daß der Bruder Jacob bei hohem Alter und schwachen Füssen noch eine so schwere und bunte Mütze tragen will.

      - Lithographie, um 1827, 21 x 14,5 (H) Blattgr. 33,5 x 21cm Einblattdruck. Sehr seltene Karikatur als frühe Lithographie auf die Hamburger Hauptkirchen St. Michaelis, St. Peter, St. Katharinen, St. Jakob und St. Nikolai, die heute auch (wieder) die Silhouette der Hansestadt maßgeblich bestimmen. Hintergrund war ein Aufruf an die Hamburger zur Erneuerung des Turmhelms der Hauptkirche St. Jacobi. Ein Kirchspiel sollte die Reparaturkosten für den kuppelförmigen Renaissance-Turmhelm einspielen, was jedoch nicht funktionierte und somit wurde der Helm schon 1810 zum Abbruch verkauft. Der Architekt Hermann Peter Fersenfeldt (1786-1853) ersetzte den Helm durch einen oktogonalen, mehrgeschossigen Aufsatz, der am 2. August 1827 fertiggestellt worden war. Tatsächlich wurde angezweifelt, dass der mittelalterliche Backstein-Turmstumpf die Laste tragen könnte, so wird der nach vorne aus der Reihe seiner Turmnachbarn - altertümlich barock gekleidete Herrschaften der wohlhabenden Hamburger Bürgerwelt mit Turmaufbauten auf den Köpfen - heraustretende St. Jakob als älterer Mann mit zwei Krücken dargestellt, mit Hilfe derer er den großen Turm auf seinem Haupte balanciert. Mehrfach geknickt und Knickspurig, leicht gebräunt und minimal fleckig, rechter Rand mit roten Schnittfarbenflecken, kaum Randläsuren, schönes Blatt.

        Kiho Gafu

      Kyoto, 1827. Kawamura Kiho. 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).

        Extrait analytique de la tactique navale

      le 1er November : 1827 : Toulon : Manuscript on paper, 156 x 197mm, pp. [12] 1-90 and blanks at either end; p. 90 is a table on a double-page spread. Written in a calligraphic scribal hand (apart from the dedication which is presumably autograph), ruled borders, numerous diagrams of naval tactics in the text. : A pre-publication manuscript copy of a manual of naval tactics with diagrams of naval formations intended for use on shipboard. In his dedication to Commendant Bazoche, Casy points out the value of a pocket treatise compared with large tomes, inconvenient to use on the bridge while at sea. It was written, he says, while serving in South America under rear admiral Claude du Campe de Rosa. Casy then served under the recipient of this manuscript, Commendant Bazoche, between 1823 and 1826 aboard the Marie-Thérèse, during the Spanish War off Brazil, Chile and Peru. In the year that this manuscript was presented to Bazoche, Casy was appointed chevalier de la Légion d'honneur, and later was a vice admiral and Ministre de la Marine.The manuscript is written in an accomplished professional hand, apart from the dedication which is presumably in Casy's own hand. The work was printed in 1828 (Toulon: A. Aurel, 12mo, pp. 106) - I have only been able to locate a single copy, at the BNF.

        Manipulations chimiques

      A.Sautelet, Paris 1827 - Demi basane verte de l'époque, dos lisse portant le titre doré. Deux volumes in-8 (200x125 mm) , xxiv-428 / (4)-364-(2) pages. Nombreuses illustrations in texte. Reliure légèrement frottée. Rousseurs, infimes traces de mouillures. Première édition française. Fils d’un forgeron, Michael Faraday naît à Newington, le 22 Septembre 1791. Contrairement à la plupart des grands scientifiques, il ne reçoit aucune formation académique ou universitaire. Il quitte l’école après avoir appris à lire, écrire et compter et devient apprenti relieur à quatorze ans. Doté d’une énorme curiosité scientifique, Faraday profite alors de son métier pour lire et étudier tout ce qui lui passe sous les yeux. A 17 ans, il s’inscrit à la société philosophique de la City où il suit des conférences et donne son premier exposé sur les deux électricités. A vingt-deux ans, Michael Faraday entre comme garçon de laboratoire à la Royal Institution, où il travaillera toute sa vie, devenant même son directeur douze années plus tard en 1825. Ces premières recherches dans le domaine de la chimie commencent à porter leurs fruits puisqu’en 1820, Faraday découvre quelques dérivés chlorés du carbone et, en 1823, il met au point des techniques de liquéfaction d’un certain nombre de gaz comme le chlore, le dioxyde de carbone ou l’ammoniaque. Pour le moment, Faraday préfère délaisser l’électricité et se consacrer à la chimie. A l’époque, les gaz d’éclairage sont obtenus à partir d’huiles de poisson. Lors de leur combustion, ils laissent un dépôt liquide. Faraday se penche, en 1825, sur la question et découvre le benzène. Il s’agit là d’un de ses apports les plus importants à la chimie, ce composé devenant par la suite indispensable aux industriels. En 1831, Faraday est considéré comme un expérimentateur de génie. Il abandonne la chimie pour se consacrer à ce qui va le rendre historiquement et mondialement célèbre : ses recherches sur l’électricité. Depuis les travaux d’Hans Christian Oerted et d’Ampère, on connaissait l’existence d’un lien entre l’électromagnétisme et le passage d’un courant électrique. En particulier, on savait qu’un courant qui traverse une boucle de fil de cuivre crée en son centre un champ magnétique. Faraday, cherche lui à obtenir la création d’un courant électrique par un champ magnétique qui la traverse. Il découvre l’induction électromagnétique : ce n’est pas, explique-t-il, la présence d’un champ magnétique qui crée un courant électrique - comme on le supposait à l’époque - , mais la variation de ce champ. Cette découverte énorme sur le plan théorique va permettre la mise au point de la dynamo, de l’alternateur ou du transformateur. Cela rend possible l’utilisation de l’électricité dans la société du XIXe siècle. Celui que l’on surnomme le " prince des expérimentateurs " passe la fin de sa vie à Hampton Court, dans une belle demeure offerte par la reine Victoria en reconnaissance de ces travaux. Il décède le 25 août 1867, à l’âge de soixante-seize ans, laissant derrière lui une des plus impressionnantes œuvres scientifiques de tous les temps. Neville [I, 443 : "Rare.

        Mémoire sur les integrales difinies lu a l'Institut le 22 aout 1814.

      Paris, Imprimerie Royale, 1827. - 4to (ca. 27,5x21,5 cm), Seite 599-799, Pappband der Zeit. In: Mémoires présentés par divers savans a l'Academie Royale des Sciences de l'Institut de France et imprimes par son ordre. Sciences mathématiques et physiques. Tome premier. 799 Seiten. First printing of his most important 1814 work on complex-variable function theory. Between 1814 and 1831, the great french mathematician Augustin Louis Cauchy created practically single-handedly a new branch of pure mathematics. Complex function theory was and remains of central mportance, and ist creation marked the start of one of the most exciting periods in the development of mathematics. A first memoir was written in 1814 and published in 1827 (here) and a second memoir with same title was published in 1824 (Paris: de Bure). Lit.: Smithis, in: Landmark Writings in Western mathematica 1640-1940, edited by I. Grattan-Guiness, Roger Cooke, pp. 377 ff. "In 1814 he submitted to the French Academy the treatise on definite integrals that was to become the basis of the theory of complex functions. In 1816 he won a prize contest of the French Academy on the propagation of waves at the surface of a liquid; his results are now classics in hydrodynamics." (DSB). Der französische Mathematiker Augustin-Louis Cauchy (1789 - 1857) war ein Pionier der Analysis, er entwickelte die von Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz und Sir Isaac Newton aufgestellten Grundlagen weiter, wobei er die fundamentalen Aussagen auch formal bewies und einer neuen Auffassung des Funktionsbegriffs zum Durchbruch verhalf. In seinem berühmten Aufsatz Sur les intégrales définies begann Cauchy 1814 reelle Funktionen über Rechtecke in der komplexen Zahlenebene zu integrieren, um reelle Integrale auszurechnen. Hier tauchen zum ersten Mal die Cauchy-Riemann-Differentialgleichungen auf, die komplexe Differenzierarbeit und partielle Differentialgleichungen verbinden. Siehe Wikipedia. In einem Sammelband der Acadamie Royale des Sciences de l'Institut de France mit weiteren Beiträgen von Cauchy (Théorie de la Propagation des Ondes) und von Damoiseau (Mémoire sur la théorie de la lune).

        Programma e Figure della Mascherata de quattro principali Poeti d'Italia, mostratasi alla festa data in Napoli dalla Nobile Accademia delle Dame e de Cavalieri, la sera del 19 Febbrajo 1827, coll'intervento dell'Augusta Reale Famiglia.

      s.l.n.d. (Napoli, 1827). - in-folio. 2ff. 20 planches lithographiées et coloriées. Percaline noire du début du 20e siècle, titre doré sur le plat supérieur (charnière supérieure un peu fendue). Rarissime suite de lithographies finement coloriées représentant la vingtaine de jeunes gens de la haute société napolitaine qui s'étaient costumés pour une mascarade donnée à Naples devant la famille royale, le soir du 19 février 1827. Ce défilé célébrait les "quatre principaux poètes d'Italie" (Dante, Pétrarque, Arioste et le Tasse) en les mettant en scène au milieu de personnages habillés à la mode de leur époque; conformément aux usages de ce type de célébration, les 4 figurants qui incarnaient les poètes rendaient notamment hommage pendant la parade au roi François Ier des Deux-Siciles, présent dans l'assistance, en lui récitant chacun un couplet dont le texte complet est reproduit dans les feuillets préliminaires. Les protagonistes de cette soirée costumée étaient issus de la jeunesse de l'aristocratie italienne et des familles de notables étrangers (d'origine anglaise en particulier): les demoiselles Temple, Fonton, Lushington, Talbot, Lady Julia Lockwood, la Baronesse Dachenhausen, la Princesse Zurlo, les Princes de Luperano et Odelscachi, le Duc de Lucques, les Comtes Castella et Mocenigo, etc Ce volume très rare, qui semble notamment manquer aux principales collections publiques italiennes, est constitué, comme annoncé dans les feuillets préliminaires, de 20 planches lithographiées et coloriées qui représentent tous les acteurs costumés de la parade. Charnière supérieure frottée. Quelques rousseurs mais bel exemplaire. Manque au catalogue collectif italien.

        Flora Australasica; or a selection of handsome or curious plants, natives of New Holland, and the South Sea Islands..

      London: James Ridgway, 1827. A few scattered age spots otherwise very good.. Royal octavo, with 56 engraved plates in fine contemporary handcolouring; a fine, large copy, bound in handsome quarter green morroco, marbled boards, top edge gilt. First edition; one of the most attractive of all Australian botanical books and the first with illustrations taken from live specimens rather than dried plants or field sketches - the species depicted having been grown from seeds in London nurseries. This experimentation directly resulted from Joseph Banks's methods and indicates how widely his influence had spread.This was the third illustrated work devoted to the botany of Australia (the first was James Edward Smith's of 1793, and the second Bauer's exceptionally rare Illustrationes Floræ Novæ Hollandiæ of 1813). Sweet's book represents a departure from its two predecessors. As a horticulturist, rather than a scientific botanist or botanical artist, he was more interested in the cultivation than the classification of exotic plants. During the last ten years of his life he published a number of botanical works which catered for the educated English public in the same way as Paxton's and Curtis's botanical magazines.No fewer than nine plants are distinctly noted as having been collected in western Australia, chiefly from the vicinity of King George's Sound (modern Albany). A further 16 are noted as from the "south coast of New Holland", with the majority of the rest coming from around Port Jackson and Tasmania. Sweet includes, where possible, field notes on the plants, and it is interesting to see that a large number were collected in Australia personally by the little-known William Baxter, gardener to one Francis Henchman Esq. of Clapton Nursery. Baxter had been sent out by Henchman with the express view of collecting plants in remote regions.This is a fine and fresh copy of the book, with bright handcolouring to the plates, which were drawn by one of the finest botanical artists of the day - Edwin Dalton Smith of Chelsea, for many years attached to the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. In style it bridges a gap between late-eighteenth-century botanical art, generally of a most "refined" nature, and the nineteenth-century variations, which led to the often less exquisite lithograph.
