        Botanical Cabinet Consisting of Coloured Delineations of Plants from All Countries with a Short Account of Each

      London: John & Arthur Arch, 1828. Square octavo, 10 handcoloured plates, each plate accompanied by single leaf of text; in the original printed wrappers, fine. With two Australian plants. Uncommon: a separate issue of the famous Loddiges "Botanical Cabinet", including plates of two Australian specimens being grown at their nursery. This issue, in pristine original condition with the printed wrappers, provides an insight into the publishing history of this remarkable project to make the exotic plants of the world available to amateur gardeners in the 1820s.The Loddiges family, originally from Germany, had a nursery in Hackney, which by the early nineteenth century had become famous for the introduction of rare and exotic plants, most of which were ultimately illustrated in the Botanical Cabinet. The beautiful plates, engraved by George Cooke from drawings by a number of artists, use a combination of straightforward engraving, stipple and roulette, and are all coloured by hand. Each plate is accompanied by a page of effusive text, not notably scientific, but advising on the history of the plant's introduction and techniques for its cultivation.The two Australian specimens here are the Bauera rubiaefolia, "a handsome shrub", first raised in 1793 by the Marchioness of Rockingham at Hillingdon; and the Acacia impressa, raised from seeds they received from New South Wales in 1822. Testament to the far-reaching interests of Loddiges, other plants in this issue come from as far afield as Rio de Janeiro, the Cape of Good Hope, the West Indies, and Virginia.

Monumentale Opera, in cui si dà ragguaglio dell'impresa di bonifica ottocentesca compiuta sotto Leopoldo II. I lavori furono coordinati dal Comm.Alessandro Manetti, con la direzione amministrativa di Giacomo Grandoni. Estensore del testo è il Segretario della Direzione del Corpo degli Ingegneri, Ferdinando Tartini, che fu tra i fondatori del Gabinetto Viesseux e della "Società di Geografia, Statistica e Storia naturale patria" e fu Segretario Generale in occasione della 3^ Riunione degli Scienziati Italiani, tenutasi a Firenze nel 1841. "La parte costiera e pianeggiante dell'attuale provincia di Grosseto ha rappresentato per secoli la parte paludosa della Toscana più difficile dal punto di vista del risanamento ambientale. Le politiche di sfruttamento di età medicea miravano ad un incremento dell'agricoltura e del pascolo in questa zona fortemente limitati dalla presenza del grande lago di Castiglione che tuttavia costituiva per il governo, con l'appalto della pesca, una delle più grosse entrate di tutto il patrimonio fondiario. Ferdinando I curò la realizzazione di molte opere idrauliche (tra cui la confinazione del Lago) e nel 1592 istituì l'Ufficio dei Fossi di Grosseto. Durante la Reggenza lorenese l'opera di una équipe di ingegneri tra cui spicca il nome di Leonardo Ximenes (Trapani, 1716 - 1786, che progettò la Casa Rossa) avviò il piano di Bonifica integrale della Maremma voluto da Pietro Leopoldo. Pietro Ferroni, che nel 1781 sostituì Ximenes, recuperò il vecchio progetto di prosciugamento del lago castiglionese e ne attuò la colmata parziale. La definitiva colmata del Lago di Castiglione fu portata a compimento nel 1828 grazie al progetto e allo studio del Fossombroni che attuò così il provvedimento di bonifica più imponente di tutta la Maremma pisana e grossetana" (A.Gozzoli).

        Philip Useful's Natural History of Animals; for Amusement & Instruction (cover title)

      NY: Solomon King, (c. 1828). Octavo. 5 ff + 7 hand-colored plates from wood engravings. With hand-colored engraved title page. Popular history of various animals, including the ass, dog, cow, beaver, common hog, and rabbit. The text describing these animals varies: in the case of the cow, the text is a poem; others are anecdotal, and all focus on their relationship with humankind. This is a rare Solomon King juvenile, with only the Free Library copy recorded. Their description notes that it was not listed in H.B. Weiss's NYPL bibliography of the publisher; however, there is a listing under Philip Useful for 1828 that does not seem to correspond to anything that is recorded thus. It is possible that Weiss did not have a copy to examine, given the book's rarity. There is a rather touching set of ownership inscriptions for a father and son, and a pencil note to the son requesting that he care for this volume that was his father's. Spine ends split and chipped, but spine holding well. Front endpaper trimmed at the top, perhaps to excise a name. Minor interior foxing and scattered spotting. Overall a very nice copy.

      1828 1828 - Radierung, 1828, auf festem Velin. 23,5:28,7 cm. Insgesamt stockfleckig, rechte obere Ecke fehlt. Literatur: Nagler 4; Andresen/Heller 1; Boetticher 5 (Orig.-Lithographien u. Radierungen). Tochter des Landschaftsmalers, Kunsthändlers und Musikers J.B. Stuntz (1753-1836), der zusammen mit J.N. Strixner (1782-1855) und F. Piloty (1786-1844) in München eine Steindruckerei gegründet hatte. Ausgebildet bei ihrem Vater und seinen beiden Kompagnons, arbeitete sie erst in der lithographischen Anstalt. Hier hatte sie mit eigenen Folgen großen, auch finanziellen Erfolg, weshalb sie für die Familie einen Sommersitz in Thalkirchen bei München erwerben konnte. 1813 ging sie zum Studium der Historienmalerei an die Münchner Akademie und war Schülerin von J.P. von Langer (1756-1824) und dessen Sohn R. von Langer (1783-1846). Bereits 1815 sollte sie mit ihren ersten ausgestellten Ölgemälden große Anerkennung finden. 1818 folgte eine Reise nach Paris, wo sie die Werke der Alten Meister studierte und vor allem nach Raffael kopierte. Ein dreijähriges Reisestipendium ermöglichte ihr anschließend einen Aufenthalt in Italien. Hier begegnete sie Louise Seidler (1786-1866) und entdeckte, auch durch F. Overbeck angeregt, die religiöse Malerei. 1821 wurde sie Ehrenmitglied der Accademia di San Luca. Nach München 1822 zurückgekehrt, heiratete sie 1823 den ihr seit 1818 bekannten Kgl. Bayer. Vize-Oberstallmeister Wilhelm Frh. von Freyberg. Danach wechselnde Aufenthalte in München und Thalkirchen sowie Fortsetzung ihrer künstlerischen Tätigkeit. Sie schuf ein großes Œuvre an Landschaften, Porträts, Historien- und Genrebildern sowie religiösen Motiven. Von der in ihrer Zeit als eine der besten Zeichnerinnen und Malerinnen gerühmten Künstlerin besitzen zahlreiche Museum und Graphische Sammlungen Werke, so in München, Berlin und Wien.

        SIMON BOLIVAR LIBERTADOR PRESIDENTE DE LA REPUBLICA DE COLOMBIA ETC. ETC. ETC. DEBIENDO ARREGLARSE EL REJIMEN POLITICO I ECONOMICO DE LA REPUBLICA CONFORME A LAS BACES QUE CONTIENE EL TITULO 4o. DEL DECRETO ORGANICO DE 27 AGOSTO ULTIMO, OIDO DICTAMEN DEL CONSEJO DE ESTADO DECRETO... [first few lines of text]

      Bojaca, Colombia. Dec. 23, 1828.. 2pp. Folio. Minor soiling. Near fine. Simón Bolívar had long dreamed of uniting his new republics (which he had wrested by force from the Kingdom of Spain) by establishing a government modeled after that of the United States. By 1826, however, Gran Colombia's twelve departments were proving more and more difficult to govern. In an effort to preserve his dream, he decided a more centralized form of government would be necessary. A congress was convened in April, 1828, in order to write a new constitution. The convention nearly succeeded in implementing a federal style government that would have greatly reduced Bolívar's political power. Bolívar's supporters withdrew in protest, leaving the congress dead in the water. In response, Bolívar proclaimed himself dictator through the Decree of Dictatorship on August 27, 1828, considering it a temporary measure. Following his proclamation, Colombian Secretary of the Interior José Manuel Restrepo released the present decree. The decree outlines the structure and function of the government as authorized by the August 27, 1828 Decree of Dictatorship containing a total of twenty-two articles. Article one states that the territories of the Republic will remain in the present jurisdictions and will retain their names. However, the government retains the right to combine two or more areas into a single jurisdiction. The rest of the articles outline the appointment of prefects and their authorities of rule, including powers of legislation, command of police, and issuing of prison sentences and fines.

        Autograph Letter Signed to Alexis de Tocqueville, 3 pp on one folded 4to sheet, Cambridge, MA, July 5, 1837

      Sparks begins his letter on the third page following a "duplicate" letter he had previously written to de Tocqueville dated June 6 of the same year. He discusses the translation and publication of de Tocqueville's most famous work, "Democracy in America ["Democratie en Amerique"]." It has been suggested that Sparks and de Tocqueville met in 1828 while Sparks was visiting Paris to do research on American history in the French archives. In 1830, Sparks founded and edited the "American Almanac and Repository of Useful Knowledge," and from 1834-37, he wrote "The Life and Writings of George Washington," published in 12 volumes in 1842. "The Writings of Washington" itself was published separately in 1837. Alexis de Tocqueville made his historic visit to America between 1831- 1832. Sparks was among those with whom de Tocqueville met on his travels, and their discussions influenced de Tocqueville's important book. In Sparks letter to de Tocqueville of June 6, 1837, which Sparks had duplicated here in another hand, Sparks discussed the translation and publication of de Tocqueville's, "Democracy in America." Sparks says, "I am vexed and mortified that an edition of your 'Democratie' has not yet been published in America. ["Democracy in America" was published in France in 1835 & 1840; the English translation was published in 1838 & 1840]. The causes might be explained... the work came out just at the time of the unfortunate 'Indemnity Controversy', and then General Jackson's war spirit began to stir up... hostile feelings toward France.... Parts of your work most objectionable to American readers... remarks on the defects of Democratic institutions...." In the current letter of July 5, Sparks explains. "My Dear Sir, The preceding letter is a duplicate of one which I wrote to you a month ago [June 6,1837]. Since that time I have applied to the American Stationers' Company (a publishing house in Boston) respecting the publication of your new work [second part of "Democracy in America," reference below.] They agree to procure a translation, well executed, and to publish it, in case you do not have another translation printed in England. The reason of this condition is that a separate translation published in England may be reprinted here and thus injure the sale of the American translation." He requests that de Tocqueville, "not have the same printed in England. The sheets can be sent to London as they come from the press...the copyright of the translation will be received in the United States. If you approve this arrangement, you will please to give me due notice. Your 'Democratie', which was advertised as soon to be put to press in New York, has not appeared...." Sparks explained the reasons in his June 6 letter. Sparks continues, "Should it not be published in New York and should the American Stationers' Company publish the Second Part, it is possible that they may also publish the 'Democratie' in a uniform style...." Sparks concluded with details on how de Tocqueville should send the manuscript. Signed, "Truly your friend, Jared Sparks." On the lower left across from his signature, Sparks identifies his correspondent as, "Mons. Alexis de Tocqueville." The American Stationers' Company published Sparks "George Washington: The Writings of Washington" in 1837.

        A Series of Figures Shewing all the motions in the Manual and Platoon Exercises

      London: William Clowes, 1828. Octavo, letterpress and 26 plates, some offsetting as common; an appealing copy in contemporary red quarter roan, rubbed. Mitchell on military drill. Major Mitchell's famous book on military exercises and musketry drills with its series of marvellous lithographic plates.Sir Thomas Livingstone Mitchell, explorer and Surveyor-General in New South Wales, arrived in Sydney in 1827, but this remarkable little book dates from the period immediately before he left England. Mitchell had seen action in the Peninsula War, and was for some years employed by Sir George Murray to produce plans of the major battlefields. However, the early 1820s was a fallow period for Mitchell, who was placed on half pay in 1826: the distinct lack of opportunities for the ambitious young man was what led him to lobby for appointment in New South Wales.This interesting work was clearly one of the ways in which he supplemented his income, and certainly shows Mitchell's undoubted ability with preparing illustrations for publication, as the series of drills included here are very neatly done. An 1825 edition is the earliest recorded, and although Ferguson noted only an 1830 edition, this work was clearly widely used as there was - at least - other editions in 1827 and 1828 (as here). Any copy is now quite scarce on the market.

        A Pilgrimage in Europe and America, leading to the Discovery of the Sources of the Mississippi and Bloody River; with a description of the whole course of the former, and of the Ohio.

      London: Printed for Hunt and Clarke, 1828. - 2 volumes. 8vo., (8 ½ x 5 ½ inches). 3 fine folding engraved maps and plans (one with 2-inch tear affecting the image, some browning); fine engraved frontispiece showing "The Author in his Dress when among the Indians"; 3 engraved plates. Contemporary brown crushed morocco, gilt tooled, the spine in five compartments separated by four raised bands, black morocco gilt lettering pieces in two, the rest elaborately tooled in gilt (extremities rubbed, one or two surface abrasions). Provenance: With the contemporary gift inscription of Edward Hugessen Knatchbull-Hugessen, 1st Baron Brabourne (1829-1893), the younger son of Sir Edward Knatchbull, 9th Baronet and Fanny Catherine Knight, a niece of Jane Austen. First English edition, first published in French in 1824. "The author accompanied Major Long in his second expedition, who remarks: 'An Italian whom we met at Fort St. Anthony [i.e. Fort Snelling] attached himself to the expedition, and accompanied us to Pembina. He has recently published a book which we notice merely on account of the fictions and misrepresentations which it contains.' The 'Revue encyclopedique,' 1826, xxix. 457, criticised the work severely, and doubted the discovery. The author replied in a 'Lettre sur la découverte d'un manuscrit mexicain,' which was printed in Tome XXXII of the Revue, and in the English edition of his 'Pilgrimage'" (Sabin). "Volume II is almost entirely devoted to the author's travels among the Northwestern Indians, of whom he gives some novel particulars. The narrations of what he witnessed are tinged with the peculiar glow of the author's temperament" (Field). Edward Hugessen Knatchbull-Hugessen was the 1st Baron Brabourne as well as the great-nephew of Jane Austen. Upon his mother's death, he inherited Austen's letters. He edited the first edition of Jane Austen's letters, which was published in 1884, and was also reasonably well known as the author of children's stories. Here, a charming gift inscription from Knatchbull-Hugessen to his friend Oswald Augustus Smith upon his graduation from Eton, dated Easter 1844. This lovely copy of Beltrami's seminal work is especially nice due to this distinguished provenance. Field 111; Howes B338 ("aa"); Sabin 4605; Wagner-Camp 26a:2.

        Botanical Cabinet Consisting of Coloured Delineations of Plants from All Countries with a Short Account of Each.

      John & Arthur Arch, London 1828 - Square octavo, 10 handcoloured plates, each plate accompanied by single leaf of text; in the original printed wrappers, fine. With two Australian plants. Uncommon: a separate issue of the famous Loddiges "Botanical Cabinet", including plates of two Australian specimens being grown at their nursery. This issue, in pristine original condition with the printed wrappers, provides an insight into the publishing history of this remarkable project to make the exotic plants of the world available to amateur gardeners in the 1820s.The Loddiges family, originally from Germany, had a nursery in Hackney, which by the early nineteenth century had become famous for the introduction of rare and exotic plants, most of which were ultimately illustrated in the Botanical Cabinet. The beautiful plates, engraved by George Cooke from drawings by a number of artists, use a combination of straightforward engraving, stipple and roulette, and are all coloured by hand. Each plate is accompanied by a page of effusive text, not notably scientific, but advising on the history of the plant's introduction and techniques for its cultivation.The two Australian specimens here are the Bauera rubiaefolia, "a handsome shrub", first raised in 1793 by the Marchioness of Rockingham at Hillingdon; and the Acacia impressa, raised from seeds they received from New South Wales in 1822. Testament to the far-reaching interests of Loddiges, other plants in this issue come from as far afield as Rio de Janeiro, the Cape of Good Hope, the West Indies, and Virginia.

        Lectures on Physiology, Zoology and the Natural History of Man, delivered at the Royal College of Surgeons

      Salem: Foote and Brown, 1828. Octavo, with seven craniology engravings, an excellent uncut copy in original boards with the publisher's spine label. The American edition, and an unusually fine copy. American edition of a controversial thesis on the anatomy and physiology of the human species, disseminating the five-fold racial schemata propounded by German scientist Johann Blumenbach throughout the English speaking world.Lectures on Physiology is the work of the celebrated English surgeon William Lawrence, best remembered for his pioneering work in the emerging science of ophthalmology. Lawrence openly acknowledges the great influence Blumenbach has exerted upon his studies: 'the principal subject of the following pages has received its most numerous and successful illustrations from your sagacity, industry, and learning... I think it a mere act of justice to dedicate this work to you.'Some sections of the book, especially those treating human variation and craniology, are lifted directly from Blumenbach. Furthermore, Lawrence adheres to the fivefold division of the human species expounded by Blumenbach (namely Caucasian, Mongolian, Ethiopian, American and Malay).This American edition followed the first English printing by some nine years; the primary difference between the two being the absence of five portraits included in the English first edition of 1819. The book caused consternation amongst theologians and the establishment by insisting that all mental thought was purely a result of activity in the brain. By so doing, Lawrence denied the existence of an immaterial immortal soul occurring independently of the body - an assertion uncomfortably close to atheism. Even Lawrence's mentor, the affable surgeon John Abernethy, stated he had gone too far. Lawrence was forced to withdraw the book or face professional censure, with the possibility of losing his surgical posting at Bethlehem and Bridewell hospitals. Nonetheless, its intrinsic utility motivated ten subsequent printings, including a pirate edition (Lawrence could not copyright his work as it contravened the scripture).Throughout this book the anatomical and behavioural similarities between humans and primates are examined in some detail. The conclusions tend towards variation rather than evolution through time; as such 'Lawrence's perceptive observations on inheritance do not make him a legitimate precursor of Darwin and Wallace' (DNB).

The first book printed with the type was La Rochefoucauld's Maximes in 1827; this title, equally famous, appeared in the following year.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Berlin, 29. X. 1828. - 2 SS. 4to. An einen Hofrat: "Zu den Gefühlen reinster Hochachtung, die ich längst für Sie hegte, verbindet sich, nach Ihrem geehrten [Schreiben] v. 8. v. M. u. der für mich so schmeichelhaften Beilage, das Gefühl wahrer Dankbarkeit für Ihre freundliche Beurtheilung meiner 'Charakteristik' im Hesperus. Als ein kleines Zeichen meines Dankes sende ich Ihnen einliegend auf Ihren Wunsch eine gedrängte Schilderung der Versammlung der Aerzte in Berlin, der ich Ihren Beifall wünsche [.]". - Johann Ludwig Casper war Professor für Medizin und gerichtlicher Physikus der Stadt Berlin. "Die durch Casper herbeigeführte Reform der gerichtlichen Medizin nahm ihren Ausgangspunkt von seinem Grundsatz, dass einer Emanzipation dieser Spezialität von der wissenschaftlichen Medizin im allgemeinen entgegengearbeitet werden müsse. In diesem Sinne leitete er die 1850 unter seinen Auspizien gegründete praktische Unterrichtsanstalt für Medicina forensis und führte sie bis zu seinem Tode fort" (Pagel: Biographisches Lexikon hervorragender Ärzte des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts, Sp. 311f.). Neben einer Vielzahl wissenschaftlicher Publikationen hatte er als Medizinstudent die Libretti zu den ersten vier Opern von Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy verfaßt.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Berlin, 29. X. 1828.. 2 SS. 4to.. An einen Hofrat: "Zu den Gefühlen reinster Hochachtung, die ich längst für Sie hegte, verbindet sich, nach Ihrem geehrten [Schreiben] v. 8. v. M. u. der für mich so schmeichelhaften Beilage, das Gefühl wahrer Dankbarkeit für Ihre freundliche Beurtheilung meiner 'Charakteristik' im Hesperus. Als ein kleines Zeichen meines Dankes sende ich Ihnen einliegend auf Ihren Wunsch eine gedrängte Schilderung der Versammlung der Aerzte in Berlin, der ich Ihren Beifall wünsche [...]". - Johann Ludwig Casper war Professor für Medizin und gerichtlicher Physikus der Stadt Berlin. "Die durch Casper herbeigeführte Reform der gerichtlichen Medizin nahm ihren Ausgangspunkt von seinem Grundsatz, dass einer Emanzipation dieser Spezialität von der wissenschaftlichen Medizin im allgemeinen entgegengearbeitet werden müsse. In diesem Sinne leitete er die 1850 unter seinen Auspizien gegründete praktische Unterrichtsanstalt für Medicina forensis und führte sie bis zu seinem Tode fort" (Pagel: Biographisches Lexikon hervorragender Ärzte des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts, Sp. 311f.). Neben einer Vielzahl wissenschaftlicher Publikationen hatte er als Medizinstudent die Libretti zu den ersten vier Opern von Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy verfaßt.
