      Published by Dean & Co. Threadneedle Street, London 1828 - Colour printed aquatint. Printed on wove paper. In good condition with the exception of being backed with archival supporting sheet. A number of skillfully mended tears along the edges not extending into image. Bottom right corner has been repaired. Trimmed within the plate mark on all sides. Image size: 15 1/2 x 20 3/4 inches. A charming aquatint of a hunting dog named September, by the accomplished English engraver Henry Pyall. Henry Pyall was born in 1795, but first gained recognition as a publisher in 1820. By 1822, he had formed a publishing house in London with the engraver George Hunt. Pyall soon established himself as a successful aquatint engraver, producing many plates for the publishing houses of Ackermann & Co. and Thomas McLean. Throughout his career he reproduced mainly sporting and animal pictures and his soft, even technique made him an eminently successful printmaker. This charming print of a hunting dog named September is one of a pair of aquatints, the companion piece entitled "October," after paintings by Francis Calcraft Turner. This beautiful print is a marvelous example of Pyall's superior technique and keen compositional eye. Lane, Sporting Aquatints and Their Engravers, Vol. 1, p. 82, no. 1.

Veelwaard, folding table and 3 lithographed plans for a hospital (2 folding). VIII,138 pp.* First edition. - 'Ziekenhuizen op de plantage bestonden al sinds de achttiende eeuw, maar daar moet men zich niet veel van voorstellen. De bedompte, veel te krappe en vaak bouwvallige gebouwtjes stonden koud op de grond en waren multifunctioneel, ze dienden bijvoorbeeld ook als magazijn of veestal. In 1828 trok de medicus Kuhn van leer tegen dit soort praktijken. Zijn voorstellen ter verbetering, onder andere weergegeven in de bijlagen van zijn boek met twee ontwerpen voor plantageziekenhuizen van de archirect W.M. de Vroome, werden in de negentiende eeuw blijkbaar gedeeltelijk overgenomen, want de situatie verbeterde inderdaad' (Kolfin, Van de slavenzweep, p. 72). - Rare observations on the conditions of the slaves in Surinam.Suriname-Cat.

      Baltimore: Published and sold by Geo. Willig Junr., [1828]. - 3pp. of engraved sheet music, with an engraving of an early railroad engine and cars surmounted by an eagle. Quarto. Dbd. Some foxing and soiling. About very good. "Second edition," following the first of the same year. Scarce printing of the sheet music for a march composed for the groundbreaking of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, featuring a very early illustration of a railroad engine and cars. This is among the earliest illustrations of a railroad in the United States that we know of, and shows the engine and four small cars. The engineer stands on the side of the engine, and the fireman sits on the front of the tender. The scene is surmounted by a large eagle, which holds two shields in its beak, one of which resembles the Maryland state flag. The music was composed by Christopher Meineke, a German- born composer and pianist who settled in Baltimore, composed much original music (both sacred and secular), and was for many years the organist of St. Paul's Church. The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad was the first passenger railroad in the United States, and on July 4, 1828 a huge celebration was held for the groundbreaking of the line, at the site of the present Camden Yards baseball park in Baltimore. This sheet music was written for that momentous event. Not in Wolfe's bibliography of secular music in America, though he does list many other compositions by Meineke. OCLC locates a total of six copies of this second edition. DICHTER & SHAPIRO, p.71, plate 11. OCLC 60424867, 54288247. AMERICAN IMPRINTS 34106. THOMSON 228.

        Das Bataillon der Philhellenen, dessen Errichtung, Feldzug und Untergang.

      Baden (Schweiz), Diebold, 1828.. 8vo (17.5 : 10.5 cm). Lithographiertes Portrait, XVIII, 226 S., 1 Falttabelle. Dunkelgrüner Maroquinband d. Zt. mit reicher, am Vorderdeckel "sprechender" Vergoldung, weißen Lackpapiervorsätzen und Goldschnitt. In marmoriertem Original-Pappschuber.. Erste Ausgabe des Augenzeugenberichtes, Hauptquelle zum kurzlebigen"Philhellenenbataillon" unter Maurocordato und dem deutschen General von Normann-Ehrenfels. Die Truppe wurde im Mai 1822 von Deutschen und Franzosen gebildet. Elster, geboren 1796 in Benshausen unweit Meiningen, war nach wirren Jahren als Student der Medizin in Leipzig, Jena und Würzburg zu General Normann gestoßen, der ihn zum Stabsarzt ernannte. Das Bataillon wurde bereits am 16. Juli 1822 bei Peta im Epirus von den Türken aufgerieben. Elster war einer der wenigen Überlebenden und schlug sich, nicht zuletzt dank seiner musikalischen Fähigkeiten, nach Smyrna durch. - Der Abenteurer hätte sich hier etablieren können. Es zog ihn jedoch in die Heimat und zu seiner Jugendgeliebten "Röschen" zurück, der Tochter eines Benshäuser Weinhändlers. Nach der Rückkehr 1823 mußte der Totgesagte erfahren, daß die Geliebte inzwischen von den Eltern verheiratet worden war. Elster fand einen vorläufigen Wirkungskreis als Musiklehrer und Chorleiter in Lenzburg (Schweiz) unter der Obhut von Nägeli und Pestalozzi. 1829 konnte Elster die Geliebte endlich heimführen, nachdem ihr erster Gatte frühzeitig verstorben war. Ihr ist das vorliegende Exemplar seines kurz vor der Hochzeit erschienenen Berichtes gewidmet. Das vordere freie Vorsatzblatt trägt seinen eigenhändigen Vermerk: "Meinem geliebten Röschen von Ihrem D. Elster". Der sprechend vergoldete Einband erscheint als "Memento mori" auf die gefallenen Kameraden des Philhellenbataillons. Ihre Namen und Schicksale sind auf der Falttabelle verzeichnet. Das Frontispiz zeigt Normann, schon November 1822 in Missolunghi umgekommen. - Elsters Gattin wurde bereits 1834 von den Pocken dahingerafft. Nach neuerlichen Wanderjahren ließ er sich 1839 endgültig in der Schweiz nieder und wirkte von 1846 bis zu seinem Tod 1857 als Musikprofessor im Aargau. - Droulia, Philhellenisme, no. 1419; Barth & Kehrig-Korn, Die Philhellenenzeit, p. 106 ff.; ADB VI, p. 72 f. - Der Schuber berieben und bestoßen, der bemerkenswerte Einband hingegen wohlerhalten. Die Lackpapiervorsätze oxidiert, ein Falzeinriß an der Tabelle sorgfältig verleimt. Schönes, frisches Vorzugsexemplar auf Schreibpapier.

        Picturesque tour of the River Thames.

      R. Ackermann London 1828 - Quarto, folding map, 24 fine full-page hand coloured plates, and 2 hand coloured vignettes, usual light offsetting to plates, later red half morocco gilt, top edge gilt, others uncut. Pleasant fresh example of the first edition. This book, along with Ireland's views and Boydell's work, helped establish a canon of most-favoured views of the Thames from the source to the sea. "The colouring is less subdued than Boydell's, and there are more unaquatinted spaces where the interpretation has been left to the colour-washing artist. This gives the plates a greater resemblance to spontaneous water-colour drawings but leads inevitably to a greater disparity between individual copies" (Abbey).

        Chart of two islands in the Fijian group captioned "Plan de l'ile St. Augustin (de Maurelle). Levé par M. Lottin, Officer de la Marin... Plan de l'ile Rotouma"

      Paris: Artus Bertrand, 1828. Engraved map measuring 600 x 425 mm., (sheet size); single sheet with two separately captioned charts, fine. Tromelin voyage charts Rotuma. Fine chart produced from the results of the Duperrey voyage through the Pacific (1822-1825) showing St. Augustine and Rotouma (modern day Rotuma). Both outlying islands are presently under the governance of Fiji. The expedition led by Louis-Isidor Duperrey was typical of nineteenth century scientific voyages, with an emphasis on ethnology, natural history collecting, and accurate cartography and hydrography. The Duperrey voyage resolved many cartographic ambiguities of scattered Pacific islands north of the equator, and is remarkable its atlas of finely engraved maps. This chart was originally published for inclusion in the hydrographic atlas of the official account (published in numerous parts as {i Voyage autour du Monde} from 1826 to 1830). However, this map is clearly a later issue revised with information gathered in 1828 by the expedition led by Le Goarant de Tromelin in the corvette {i La Bayonnaise}. This is noted in an engraved note below the caption title of the Rotouma map, and the chart itself is marked with the track of {i La Bayonnaise} with soundings recorded.

        PLANTAE OFFICINALIS oder Sammlung Officineller Pflanzen

      1828. NEES VON ESENBECK, Theodor Friedrich Ludwig. PLANTAE OFFICINALIS oder Sammlung Officineller Pflanzen mit Lithographirten Abbildungen von A. Henry, und Beschreibungen von M.F. Weyhe, J.W. Wolter, und P.W. Funke. Fortgesetzt von Dr. Th. Fr. L. Nees v. Esenbeck. Dusseldorf, Arnz & Comp., [1821-]1828-1833. A great encyclopedia of medicinal plants, including the rare Supplement volume, is offered complete in three folio volumes: one volume of text, measuring 16 x 9.5 in., accompanied by two plate volumes with a combined total of 558 lithographed plates, measuring 18.25 x 11 in., of which 550 are hand-colored and 8 are plain. The plates by Aime Henry are both attractive and painstakingly clear and accurate. Nees von Esenbeck (1787-1837), the main author, was Inspector of the Leiden Botanic Garden and Director of the Bonn University Botanic Garden. The majority of this work was first issued from 1821-28 in 18 parts with 438 plates. A Supplement was published from 1829-33 in 5 parts with additional text and 120 plates. The descriptive texts and the plates from both the main work of 1828 and its 1833 Supplement have been alphabetized and bound together in the present three-volume format of one text and two plate volumes, retaining the title-pages from each. Text volume: [511] ff.; plate volumes: [ii, 274] ff. and [i, 284] ff. The text leaves are unsigned and unfoliated. The plates are unfoliated too, despite being identified by number in the indices bound at the end of the text volume, and have subsequently been consecutively numbered lightly in pencil across the two volumes, from 1 through 558. The text volume has two letterpress title- pages, the first dated 1828, and the second dated 1833 with the words "ICONES PLANTARUM MEDICINALIUM ... Erster Supplement-band mit 120 Abbildungen." The plate volumes have three lithographed title-pages between them. The first plate volume also has two title-pages dated 1828 and 1833. Although the 1833 title-page retains PLANTAE OFFICINALIS as the main title, it ends with "Erster Supplement-band mit 120 Abbildungen." Bound in contemporary quarter-leather and marble paper-covered boards, with the title SAMMLUNG OFFIZINELLER PFLANZEN gilt-stamped to spines, the bindings are worn at extremities and scuffed, and both bookblocks are separated in two within the bindi

        De la percussion médiate et des signes obtenus à l'aide de ce nouveau moyen d'exploration, dans les maladies des organes thoraciques et abdominaux

      Paris, Londres, J.S. Chaudé & J.B. Baillière 1828 - In-8, X, 336 pp., 2 pl. sur 1 f. dépl., demi-basane rouge, dos à faux nerfs orné, un peu frotté, très bel état intérieur, d¿une grande fraîcheur. Edition originale rare en reliure d¿époque. Piorry imagina la percussion médiate à l¿aide du plessimètre (lamelle de bois ou d¿ivoire), dont l¿usage fut vivement critiqué. Il expérimenta sa technique sur le cadavre avant de l¿intégrer à l¿examen clinique avec des résultats apparemment excellents. Cette technique permit le développement de la percussion. Piorry imagina, pour perfectionner cette méthode, des modifications, qui ne seront cependant que des sophistications inutiles. Le plessimètre à plaque sera utilisé pendant presqu¿un siècle, avant d¿être totalement abandonné au profit du simple doigt plessimètrique (percussion digito-digitale). Le plessimètre et un stéthoscope sont représentés sur la première planche. Cet ouvrage valut à son auteur le prix Montyon. Pierre Adolphe Piorry (1794-1870), qui fut professeur de clinique médicale à Paris (à la Charité, puis à l¿Hôtel-Dieu), était un médecin clairvoyant. En plus de cette invention du plessimètre et la percussion médiate, il comprit très tôt l¿importance de l¿anatomie pathologique et de la méthode numérique de Louis, et fut l¿un des premiers médecins à utiliser la thermométrie et les examens sanguins (chimie, microscopie). Il fut membre de l¿Académie de médecine. Garrison & Morton, 2675 ; Bedford, 471. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Barbezat, 1830. 2 tomes reliés en un volume, 21 x 13 cm (R), in-8°, 2 ff. n. ch. + frontispice par Henri Monnier + XVIII pp. + 334 pp. + 1 f. n. ch. (table), 2 ff. n. ch. + 408 pp. + 2 ff. n. ch. (table et erratum), reliure romantique de l'époque en demi-veau blond, dos lisse orné en long, pièce de titre en veau noir, tranches jaspées. Edition originale pour les deux tomes. Le premier sort des presses d'Honoré de Balzac, il est l'un des plus recherchés, car le plus réussi, des impressions balzaciennes. De 1826 à 1828, année de sa faillite, Balzac fut imprimeur (et fondeur de caractères) et produisit toutes sortes de volumes, parmi lesquels de nombreuses plaquettes publicitaires, des physiologies, des ouvrages didactiques, des mémoires, des oeuvres littéraires et quelques pièces condamnées, comme celle-ci. Cette édition est beaucoup plus rare que sa deuxième édition, datant de la même année, et il est peu fréquent de trouver les deux tomes ainsi réunis. Très agréable exemplaire, malgré de menus frottis aux coiffes et des rousseurs sans gravité affectant le frontispice et 10 ff. du tome 1 et quelques rousseurs éparses au tome 2.

He is best known for novels such as Journey To The Center Of The Earth (1864), Twenty Thousand Leagues Under The Sea (1870), and Around the World in Eighty Days (1873). Verne wrote about space, air, and underwater travel before air travel and practical submarines were invented, and before practical means of space travel had been devised. He is the third most translated author in the world, according to Index Translationum. Some of his books have been made into films. Verne, along with Hugo Gernsback and H. G. Wells, is often popularly referred to as the "Father of Science Fiction". Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      [N.p. 1828].. Broadside, 25 1/4 x 15 3/4 inches. Old fold lines. Light edge wear and foxing. Three small, mostly marginal, open tears, with the loss of parts of five lines of text near the bottom left, and just touching two coffin illustrations elsewhere. Good. One of the largest of the infamous "Coffin Broadsides" attacking Andrew Jackson in the presidential campaign of 1828. There was considerable mud-slinging between the Jackson and Adams camps during that campaign, which eventually saw the defeat of the incumbent John Quincy Adams and the election of Andrew Jackson. Across the top of the present broadside are six woodcut coffins bearing the names of six militiamen shot on Jackson's orders during the War of 1812; an account of their wrongful execution follows. Below that there are more accounts of Jackson's evil and murderous deeds, including seven regular soldiers shot on Jackson's orders prior to the six militiamen (complete with six more coffin woodcuts); the tale of another soldier unfairly executed (with another woodcut coffin); and a brief account of some Indian prisoners executed on Jackson's orders (four more coffins). The bottom portion includes a testimonial by Thomas Hart Benton, who himself had fought a duel with Jackson. The verso of the broadside contains a full-page account of the trial of the six militiamen who are the focus of the coffin broadside, reprinting court martial proceedings dated between November 21, 1814 and January 22, 1815. The "Coffin Handbill" exists in several formats, of which this is one of the largest, and one of the only versions to contain the trial text on the verso. Not in Shoemaker, and only two other copies located in OCLC. OCLC 51509187.

First and only edition. As suggested by the sub-title, Mulligan - who styles himself "Teacher of Navigation and Mental Astronomy, by a New and Approved System" - suggests that he has found a revolutionary short-cut to complex navigational problems. "The small Treatise here submitted to the attention of the Public contains a new and useful Construction, comprising in one view all the principles of Spherical Trigonometry, and several useful calculations in the science of Navigation, never before published, or laid down in so compendious a manner; peculiarly calculated to assist the mariner, where necessity requires it, and indeed indispensable to all seafaring persons." In order to counter accusations of presumption he has submitted the system to "several seafaring gentlemen, who have had many years' experience" and has "been much gratified with the way in which they have given their respective signatures of approbation and become Subscribers to the volume. " A three-page subscribers list contains 130 names, together with their ships and home ports, showing a good proportion from Canada and the United States. Charles Purnell, dock master of George's dock, Liverpool, took six copies. Scarce, not on COPAC, no copy in BL or NMM, OCLC locates a single copy at Yale.
