        The Miner's Friend; or, an Engine to Raise Water by Fire, Described. And of the Manner of Fixing it in Mines; with an Account of the Several other Uses it is Applicable unto; and an Answer to the Objections made against it, reprinted.

      London: printed for S. Crouch by W. Clowes, 1827. 2nd Edition. Soft cover. 12mo - over 6¾ - 7¾" tall. 12mo (145x90 mm). [2], 53 [1] pp., including engraved portrait frontispiece and four plates, vignette illustrations to text, imprint to title dated 1827. Original printed yellow wrappers (with imprint dated 1829) contained in purpose made clamshell box, with navy crushed morocco spine. Pages untrimmed. Little browning and light dampstaining to two plates. Fine copy. Complete. ----Dibner 177 (article published in Phil. Trans. Royal Society, 1699). Honeyman sale 2766; Norman 1895 (both for first separate edition). Impossibly rare with no copy recorded at auction in the past 50 years and no copy in the USA according to OCLC/WorldCat. Although the imprint is dated 1829 on the wrapper, there is no copy known with an earlier imprint date for the wrapper (thus may be a typo). The FIRST REPRINT of Savery's description of his steam pump which, 'though not a steam engine in the modem sense of the word, embodied the first practical application of the force of steam to mechanical purposes' (DNB). His device, patented in 1698 and demonstrated before the Royal Society in 1699, 'was a condensing type engine in which the steam was caused to condense within a receiver, thereby creating a vacuum and raising water to be pumped up within connected pipes' (Dibner). While designed specifically to pump water from deep mine-shafts (as shown in Sturt's plate), Savery's invention, with some modifications by Thomas Newcomen, was found adaptable to supplying water to tall buildings and produce mechanical power by raising water to turn waterwheels. In 1712 the first working device was installed in the Warwichshire coal mines, allowing deeper shafts to be worked. Very Good.

        Two Years in New South Wales; A Series of Letters...

      London: Henry Colburn, 1827. Two volumes, duodecimo; nineteenth-century polished calf, spine gilt with black morocco labels, bookplates of William Henry Cox in both volumes. First edition: a lively and engaging description of New South Wales in the 1820s by Peter Cunningham, a naval surgeon who served on five voyages to Australia aboard convict transports before settling in the upper Hunter Valley.Of Scottish descent, Cunningham (1789-1864) joined the navy during the war with Napoleon and served in Spanish and North American waters. In 1819 he took the first of five commissions as surgeon-superintendent aboard the convict transport Recovery and enjoyed a good reputation for the slight loss of life under his care. Cunningham's last such voyage was in 1828, and it would appear that he arranged publication of the present work in London immediately prior.Comprising a series of letters to friends in Britain, Cunningham's account is a valuable contribution to the social history of the colony. It includes detailed and unguarded descriptions of peculiarly Australian social customs, with some observations on the vocabulary and accent of those born in the colony. A long letter of 40 pages treats Aboriginal life and customs. The letters are eminently readable and engaging, penned in an easy style; they enjoyed a wide popular appeal, with three English editions by 1828 and three in German by 1832.Given the author's considerable experience as a surgeon-superintendent serving on transports, the two sections devoted to the care and management of convicts on the Australian voyage are of special interest. In total, 66 pages are specifically devoted to the subject; with treatment of diet, morale, discipline, clothing, hygiene, exercises, games to alleviate boredom and relations between felons and the marines set to guard them. Occasional slight foxing, a very good set.

        Autograph letter signed to Bory de Saint-Vincent.

      Paris, Rue St Roch, 5: 2 March, 1827. Two-page autograph letter, on a single sheet of laid paper, folded to letter size 200 x 162 mm., neat autograph manuscript on two pages, the third blank and the fourth an address panel; remnants of seal, postal stamp also dated 2 March 1827. An intriguing letter from Louis de Freycinet, apparently warm but perhaps a little evasive, to his former shipmate on the Baudin voyage and the author of the only other first-hand narrative account of the voyage, Bory de Saint-Vincent.Bory had evidently written to Freycinet requesting to swap some of his own books for a copy of one of Freycinet's voyage publications (Freycinet here simply refers to "mon voyage", and the 1827 date does not confirm whether this means the second edition of the Baudin voyage or the early parts of the Freycinet voyage: both accounts date from 1824). Freycinet is mortified that he cannot spare Bory a copy: he only has his own working copy, and even that is incomplete, as he has had to give up a number of leaves to complete a friend's copy. As to getting hold of another copy, Bory should know how difficult it is to part a publisher from their profits.Although the relationship of the two men was evidently friendly, there is a reticence in Freycinet's letter that may be explained by an uneasiness that likely still existed between those who, like Bory, had quit the Baudin voyage and those who saw it through to the end, like Freycinet. The tone is friendly but cautious, displaying some of the circumlocution common in Freycinet's relations with more remote colleagues. Nonetheless Freycinet shows that he follows Bory's work, and particularly comments that he will read his articles on the "sea and mountains" with great pleasure and interest - presumably these are the forthcoming articles that Bory offered to exchange. Freycinet is sorry not to have seen Bory at all this year, but he has had a lot on his plate.Perhaps some of Freycinet's hesitation may be explained by Bory de Saint-Vincent's address: at the time of writing he was evidently to be found in the debtors' prison at Saint-Pelagie in the fifth arrondissement of Paris. Bory's life went through numerous ups and downs. As a side note, Freycinet gives his own address as Rue Neuve Saint Roch number 5.

        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.

        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 backed with linen (as common), smaller engraved chart and three engraved natural history plates (one folding); a fine set in modern period-style half calf by Aquarius, spines gilt with morocco labels. 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).

      London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, and Green, 1827. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (216 x 132 mm). iv, [2], [1]-480 pp. Errata leaf.

Provenance: Oxford, Bodleian library (armorial bookplate signed " "E. BIBL. RADCL." to front pastedown and deaccession stamp); The library of Hugh Selbourne. ----Wellcome IV, p.7. - FIRST EDITION. John MacCulloch (1773-1835) was a Scottish surgeon and geologist, president of the Geological Society from 1816 to 1818, and fellow of the Royal Society. "MacCulloch inquiring mind and interest in medicine lasted throughout his life. His principal piece of medical research on malaria gained him great credit ... and it is still a valuable contribution the the history of tropical medicine. This and his work on remittent and intermittent fevers, a reviewer commented, 'brought together such an amount of curious and instructive information as has rarely been collected on any one medical subject'. The work is presented as the study of the natural history of a disease and he stresses the significance of the environment in the spread of malaria, a term first used by MacCulloch." (C. J. Duffin et al., A history of geology and medicine, Geol. Soc. London, 2013, p.406). Near Fine.

        Voyage autour du monde. Hydrographie Atlas.

      Paris: Arthus Bertrand, 1827. Folio, with 49 maps (18 folding) and four plates of boats, crisp tall impressions; an excellent copy in old quarter calf over papered boards, spine banded with red morocco label. The complete hydrographical atlas from the Duperrey voyage, published as part of one of the immense French grands voyages series. As with most of these publications, the various components could also be bought separately, sometimes even being produced by different publishers. In fact full publication of the Duperrey voyage was never completed.Duperrey's voyage gathered 'vast quantities of ethnographic and scientific data' (Hill), and included two visits to the Australian mainland. His hydrographic work tended, as Dunmore comments, 'towards perfecting existing maps rather than preparing charts of unknown areas'. As a result, the beautiful maps clearly display their debt to the earlier explorers, and include the discoveries and vessel tracks of luminaries such as Cook, Bougainville, La Pérouse, Bligh and Flinders. The details of the harbours at the Brisbane River and Macquarie Harbour in Nouvelle Hollande are attributed in the cartouche to Oxley and Evans respectively. Bindings a little rubbed, very slightly browned along top edges not affecting images, title-page a little creased.

        Ostéographie de la baleine échouée a l'est du port d'Ostende, le 4 novembre 1827; précédée d'une notice sur la découverte et la dissection de ce Cétacée.Brussels, Laurent Frères, 1828. 8vo. With 13 folding lithographed plates depicting bones of the whale, all after Bossuet and lithographed by Jobard. Modern black half calf, gold-tooled spine.

      - Allen 709; Nissen, ZBI 1162. First edition of a monograph on the dead whale that drifted ashore in the port of Ostend, Belgium, on the 4th of November 1827. The huge whale, probably a humpback whale, was skinned, dissected, and the separate bones were studied by J. Dubar, a surgeon living in Ostend. After a general account of the dissection, a detailed osteological description of the large bones of the whale is given, illustrated by 13 detailed folding lithographed plates. The whale's bones were exhibited in a specially designed pavilion, where even the Dutch king Willem Frederik van Oranje-Nassau came to pay a visit. Later the bones were exhibited in, among others, Brussels, Rotterdam, Paris, London, Berlin and Vienna, and they are now on permanent display at the Zoological Museum in St. Petersburg. Some plates slightly foxed, otherwise in very good condition.

        O ubostwie i ubogich.

      8vo. Original [?] plain wrappers; pp. [4], iii, 150, [2, blank]; apart from light toning, and the final blank partly stuck to rear wrapper, a fine copy in its original state. Rare first edition of an early Skarbek title on political economy, based on the Polish experience, his On Misery and the Poor, dedicated to Zofia Zamoyska (1780-1837), member of the Polish high nobility, hailed at the Congress of Vienna as the most outstanding beauty. 'The conception of the moral unification and solidarity of all social states was ... developed and popularized on a European scale by Fryderyk Skarbek, writer, activist, and educator, who today is too little remembered. In his book On the Misery and the Poor (O ubóstwie i ubogich), edited in 1827, speaking about duties of the privileged he applied a theory of social models which he later developed in his essay in French entitled Essai de Morale Civique (1860), touching upon the so-called active people' (Zygmunt Komorowski, Universal Values in Polish Culture, online). Skarbek was befriended by and godfather to the composer Frédéric Chopin (1810-49), who had been born on the Skarbek estate in ?elazowa Wola. As well as stage plays, Skarbek wrote on social issues, fiction, satires, worked on prison reform in Britain, Holland and Russia, and is responsible for the design of the infamous Pawiak prison in Warsaw. Count Fryderyk Skarbek (1792-1866) studied in Warsaw and Paris, where he obtained private tuition in economics from Saint-Aubin and Piotr Maleszewski. 'In 1818 he was called to the chair of political economy at the University of Warsaw, where he taught with great success until the closing of the institution by the Russian authorities after the collapse of the Polish insurrection in 1831 ... His literary legacy includes besides several works on economics, which established his reputation as the foremost Polish economist of his period, a number of studies in the field of history, criminology, statistics and general social reform. While Skarbek regarded himself as a follower and interpreter of the classical school of economics, he departed from its teachings in a number of significant respects. Even in his early writings he drew a sharp distinction between theoretical economics, which has for its purpose the discovery of universal principles on the nature and source of the wealth of nations, and applied economics, in which the general principles shoud be modified in accordance with the geographical location, degree of economic development and other peculiarities of the respective nations' (Encyclopedia of the Social Sciences).

        Report from the Secretary of the Treasury ... in relation to grants of land made to French emigrants, to encourage the cultivation of the vine and olive.

      Washington: Duff Green,, 1827. 20th Congress, 1st Session. Octavo (220 x 140 mm). Lacking the original wrappers, exposed stab-stitched binding, titles to title page in black. Library release stamps to pp. 9 and 33. Some loss to outer corner of title page, strong creases to top edge of pp. 25-32 and tear to p. 25, foxing and creasing throughout, pp. 51-52 slightly detached from binding and with a few nicks, a good copy. An important historical document regarding viticulture practices and the early wine industry in America. It concerns the progress of Alabama's Vine and Olive Colony, named thus after the land agreement made between the US Congress and refugee settlers in 1817 (some, but certainly not all, of whom were French). Attracted by the prospect of establishing a domestic winemaking industry to combat their reliance on imported European wines, Congress granted 92,000 acres of land to the settlers, with the proviso that the land be eventually used for cultivating grapes and olives. Efforts to grow them, however, were ultimately unsuccessful; the soil and weather conditions were unsuited to either crop, and the settlers were both inexperienced and plagued with disease. In 1827 a petition was made by the remaining refugees asking for the terms of the original agreement to be relaxed - thus prompting this congressional report. Frederick Ravesies, representing the community, argued that "Your Excellency is well aware how many years, nay centuries, Europe has required to obtain this experience and perfection.

        Report from the Secretary of the Treasury . in relation to grants of land made to French emigrants, to encourage the cultivation of the vine and olive. 20th Congress, 1st Session.

      Washington: Duff Green, 1827 - Octavo (220 x 140 mm). Lacking the original wrappers, exposed stab-stitched binding, titles to title page in black. Library release stamps to pp. 9 and 33. Some loss to outer corner of title page, strong creases to top edge of pp. 25-32 and tear to p. 25, foxing and creasing throughout, pp. 51-52 slightly detached from binding and with a few nicks, a good copy. An important historical document regarding viticulture practices and the early wine industry in America. It concerns the progress of Alabama's Vine and Olive Colony, named thus after the land agreement made between the US Congress and refugee settlers in 1817 (some, but certainly not all, of whom were French). Attracted by the prospect of establishing a domestic winemaking industry to combat their reliance on imported European wines, Congress granted 92,000 acres of land to the settlers, with the proviso that the land be eventually used for cultivating grapes and olives. Efforts to grow them, however, were ultimately unsuccessful; the soil and weather conditions were unsuited to either crop, and the settlers were both inexperienced and plagued with disease. In 1827 a petition was made by the remaining refugees asking for the terms of the original agreement to be relaxed - thus prompting this congressional report. Frederick Ravesies, representing the community, argued that "Your Excellency is well aware how many years, nay centuries, Europe has required to obtain this experience and perfection. We can assert that, from our own experience, seven years is not sufficient to enable us to cultivate the vine successfully in an old country, and much more so in a wilderness" (p. 7). In the end, the majority of the settlement disbanded and the tracts were sold to land agents for other purposes. The report contains a progress review, a detailed log of the condition of each section of land, and a list of shareholder names.

        SAGGIO DI GEOLOGIA FOSSILE

      1827. Tipografia del Seminario 1827 4° Pagine 1 cartab bianca + 348 + 1 carta bianca. Brossura editoriale a stampa in carta azzurrina. 7 tavole (su 8)incise in rame testo. Al frontespizio vignetta in rame con cartina del territorio Bellunese. Lievissime fioriture. Esemplare in barbe. Importante opera sulla geologia e sulla zoologia fossile del Veronese, del Feltrino e del Bellunese, contenente anche notevoli osservazioni sulla mineralogia delle zone suddette. L'autore fu tra i primi ad approfondire scientificamente la geologia e la paleontologia dell'Italia superiore. "Il lavoro che pone il C. in primo piano nella storia della geologia regionale, e al quale si riferirono anche nei decenni successivi gli studiosi dei terreni alpini, è la Zoologia fossile..., la prima opera in cui furono descritte esattamente la successione e la disposizione dei terreni secondari italiani, fino ad allora ignorati" (D.B.I., XXII p. 532). Innovativa soprattutto la metodologia applicata, basata sulla presenza dei fossili nei vari strati analizzati. Tommaso Catullo (1784 - 1869), celebre medico e naturalista bellunese, scrisse importanti memorie di mineralogia, chimica e idrologia, incentrate soprattutto sulla storia naturale delle province venete. Poggendorff, I 398; Bibl. Geol. e Paleont. Ital., n. 5194. Per i riferimenti al territorio bellunese cfr. Buzzati, Bibl. Bellunese, n. 873.
