      William Pickering, London 1828 - Complete set in 3 volumes. One of 12 copies of the first large paper edition; however, the fly leaf of Volume 1, with Pickering's signed limitation statement, has been neatly removed. 1828. Hardcovers, 8vo., all three in original red cloth with title labels. x, 353, iv, 370, iv 428 pp. Very Good+ set. Bright, clean and unmarked contents. Some loss and rubbing to the title labels, but most of the text is still present. Spines sunned; a few small areas of discoloration to the spines and boards. Coleridge was apparently displeased with this first edition and rushed to get the second edition published. Lacks signed page, but still a scarce set. As WISE, iii, 1 notes, Dykes Campbell said of this edition, 'This must be a rare book. How much Coleridge was dissatisfied with the edition of 1828 is witnessed by the many alterations he made in preparing that of 1829.' Digital images available upon request.

        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

        HISTORY OF THE LIFE AND VOYAGES OF CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS

      Paris A. and W. Galignani 1828 - 4 volumes. First edition published in France. The book was published in England in the same year. Two large folding maps. 8vo, contemporary dark-blue half calf over marbled boards, the spines with red and black morocco lettering labels gilt, raised bands gilt ruled. xvi,472; viii, 517; viii, 434; vii, 513 pp. A handsome set with light aging or light rubbing at the tips, clean and very well preserved lettering labels refurbished at some time. IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION, Paris printing. This was a scholarly but popular biography based primarily on the work of the Spanish historian Navarrete. Navarrete had published his work on Columbus, which contained a number of previously unknown and significant documents. However, Irving felt that "the whole presented rather a mass of rich materials for history, than a history itself.[and] the sight of disconnected papers and official documents is apt to be repulsive to the general reader, who seeks for clear and continued narrative." In fact, he felt that nearly every account had been incomplete while many important documents and manuscripts ignored. Thus, he hoped to offer a more rigorous and yet accessible account. Written while Irving was a diplomatic attaché in Spain (1826-29), "it was the most painstaking effort of Irving's life, and it won him election to the 'Real Academia de la Historia', the friendship of Navarrete, and a literary reputation in Spain where the work is still quoted respectfully" (DAB). The American edition, published the same year in three volumes, had only one map. BAL A testament to Irving’s often-neglected gifts as a historian. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Villa Architecture: A Collection Of Views, With Plans. Of Buildings Executed In England, Scotland, &c

      J. Taylor, London 1828 - Half title (verso blank), title (verso with imprint), dedication (verso blank), preface pp. v-x. 34 pages in text. Folio, 44 x 30 cm. 42 plates and plans, 26 are hand-colored aquatints. This copy with plates watermarked Whatman 1827 and 1828. Nearly all designs here were executed. Among the finest depictions of country seats of the period, this copy has earlier watermarks than J.R. Abbey's example, ABBEY LIFE 33. COLTON 195.1. "The plates executed in aquatint and hand colored, are among the most handsome in all cottage and villa design books. Each subject, depicted in view and plan, is skillfully integrated with surrounding foliage and distant landscape forms. This is accomplished through effects of light and shadow, conscientiously balanced relationships between natural and built objects, and in some cases a misty haze that creates an effect of atmospheric depth. COLTON p.526. "Lugar was a skillful practitioner of the picturesque, exploiting the fashion for `cottages ornes' and castellated Gothic mansions in the manner of John Nash." Internally fresh, very bright copy, entirely uncut. Modest extremity wear. Contemporary quarter navy morocco and marbled boards. Very good. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Like the magnificent landscape of forests and waterfalls in which he moves, Natty is here restored to the full vigor of an earlier period of life. With his role as frontier scout and his hunting outfit which combines white and native elements, he appears to inhabit a liminal space between the culture of his origin and the world of his friends, the native warriors Chingachgook and his son Uncas, the last Mohican of the title."

        BELTRAMI'S "PILGRIMAGE," AND THE QUARTERLY REVIEW.

      [London: Reynell, ]. 1828 - 16pp. Dbd. Minute dust soiling, faint foxing, some leaves loose. Very good. A self-published work, Beltrami's defense against his critics. This pamphlet is the second such rant by Beltrami. In an earlier pamphlet he responded to criticism leveled against the first edition of his LA DECOUVERTE DES SOURCES DU MISSISSIPPI ET DE LA RIVIERE SANGLANTE DESCRIPTION DU COURS ENTIER DU MISSISSIPPI. (New Orleans, 1824), his account of a voyage to the headwaters of the Mississippi with the Long expedition. Chief among that criticism, which appeared in the QUARTERLY REVIEW, was that Beltrami did not include a map in his narrative. Despite his defiant response, the second edition (London, 1828) included a map. Here Beltrami responds to criticism of a more general nature, dealing with certain minor details of his narrative. Good insight into the explorer's petulant character. Quite rare. Not on OCLC. SABIN 4603 (ref).

        Opera Omnia, recensuit Filon, in regio Ludovici Magni Collegio Professor

      Paris: A. Mesnier, Biblioplam, 1828 - "One of the acknowledged miracles of microscopic printing, and in its quality unparalleled to this day, is the type created in the 1820's by Henri Didot the Elder, using the polyamatype method invented by him. It is only 2-1/2 -point while the "Diamond Roman" used by Corrall in the Pickering editions is 4-1/2-point. In spite of its exceedingly small size Didot's type is of great beauty and amazing clarity . " - Bondy.

        The History of Bullanabee and Clinkataboo, Two Recently Discovered Islands in the Pacific.

      - London: printed for Longman &c 1828. Duodecimo in sixes, publisher's cloth backed boards, printed paper spine label; 216pp. Endpapers spotted but an outstanding, fresh copy. 1829 inscription of C.H. Cruttwell, most likely Clement Henry Cruttwell, master (later headmaster) of Hertford Grammar School. Quite a rare utopia. The Islands of Bullanabee and Clinkataboo, though close to Hawaii, remain unknown to European navigators but have been trading for centuries with Japan, whose religion the islanders had embraced. As Japan was even more a mystery than Hawaii and other Pacific cultures this all allows a curious mix of supposition drawn from Asia and elsewhere, and imagination. This imaginary Japanese religion bears a remarkable likeness to Catholicism with its idol worship, the priesthood's love of gold and the supremacy of the head of the church, the sole link of communication to the Goddess Verginee. From the tyranny of this religion comes strife and civil war of course, until sense prevailed and the priests of Verginee were expelled. The cunning and cupidity of the priesthood was relentess though and trouble returns. Again, at last, sense prevails and though devotees of Verginee may persist in their worship they are wisely barred from holding any office of power. And yet again the Verginees wormed their way inside the defences of the too tolerant islanders, this during the author's two year stay, and 'in consequence of these sudden and dangerous changes in the affairs of the islands I took the opportunity of leaving them and of leaving them clandestinely for; as all liberality of sentiment was gone and the introduction of a new sort of punishment was in contemplation . I deemed it prudent to make my escape'. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Brunet III-1074 "L'ouvrage devait avoir 12 livraisons mais il n'a paru que 32 planches en 8 livraisons avec le texte." Le tirage ordinaire était à 20 fr., celui sur Chine à 40 fr. Quelques très rares exemplaires comprennent, comme le notre, 4 planches supplémentaires, preuve qu'une neuvième livraison est finalement parue. Le 12 mars 1828, suite à la disparition prématurée de Francisque Noel, initiateur de cet ouvrage, une vente eut lieu à l'hôtel Bullion des dessins, planches gravées, impressions et matériel utilisés pour cette publication.

        Autograph letter signed to R. Harlan.

      1828-62 1828 - Mott, Valentine (1785-1865). Autograph letter signed to Richard Harlan (1796-1843). New York, "15th of 1st mo" [i.e., January 15], 1820. 3pp. plus address. 230 x 189 mm. Tears along folds and lacuna where seal was broken expertly repaired, not affecting text.Excellent letter to American physician and naturalist Richard Harlan from Valentine Mott, the most celebrated American surgeon of the first half of the nineteenth century. The letter discusses medical education at "our infant University"; i.e., Columbia College in New York, where Mott was professor of surgery. The letter provides intriguing information both about the administration of Columbia College’s medical school and the college’s reputation vis-à-vis its older, more established Philadelphia counterparts:". . . Thou must know that our classes are not completely formed till about the New Year, and now I am enabled to furnish thee with the correct number of Pupils. . . . In our university those only matriculate who are pay pupils, these only we report as Students—all young practitioners and Graduates, of whom there are many, attending the Lectures are not reported by us, and therefore are not included in this estimate. The number of Students is about 160 . . .". . . [T]here is good ground for believing that our University will in time become useful to the country, reputable to the State, and profitable to the Professors—But it requires time for this, as for the reputation and success of a private practitioner; these rewards are fortunately the fruits of talents and well directed industry. It cannot be expected by reasonable men that our school will rival your University [i.e., the University of Pennsylvania, the first medical school established in the United States], whose fame has long since been established and will in all probability long continue to maintain the ascendancy. But the names of those who have given to Philadelphia its great name as a School of Physic will not always give it its present claim . . . As far as my exertions can go, they shall contribute, and they shall be the most assiduous too, in creating at some future period a respectable and useful school of medical science and Surgery in our City."Mott was a pioneer in vascular surgery: In 1818 he became the first to tie the innominate artery (see Garrison-Morton 2942), and in 1827 he performed the first successful ligation of the common iliac artery (see Garrison-Morton 2950). He was one of the first American surgeons to successfully amputate at the hip joint (see Garrison-Morton 4451.1) and to excise the jaw for necrosis (see Garrison-Morton 4447). "During his career [Mott] performed nearly a thousand amputations, operated 150 times for stone in the bladder, and ligated forty large arteries. According to his former teacher, Sir Astley Cooper, he performed more major operations than any surgeon in history, up to his time" (Dictionary of American Biography). He was the author of over twenty medical papers, and prepared the annotated and greatly expanded English translation of Velpeau’s Nouveaux elements de médecine opératoire, published under the title New Elements of Operative Surgery (1845-47). Mott also spent many years teaching surgery at various medical institutions, primarily Columbia College and the College of Physicians and Surgeons in New York. He remained active in his profession until just before his death, and received more honors during his career than any other medical man in America at that time.Mott’s correspondent, Richard Harlan, was a pioneer in the study of comparative anatomy and vertebrate paleontology in the United States in the early 19th century. In 1820 the young Harlan, just two years out of medical school, was employed as a teacher of anatomy at Joseph Parrish’s private medical school in Philadelphia, which is no doubt why he was interested in medical education. Harlan would go on to have a distinguished career: A member of several American scientific societies, including t [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Mapa de los Estados Unidos de Méjico

      New York: White, Gallaher & White, 1828. WHITE, GALLAHER & WHITE'S IMPORTANT MAP OF MEXICO SERVING AS A BASIS FOR THE DISTURNELL MAP OF 1846 Engraving with original hand-color Paper size: 29" by 41", Frame size: 40" by 55" This first edition of the White, Gallaher & White version of Mapa de los Estados Unidos de Méjico served as a precursor for John Disturnell's Treaty Map of 1846. Issued in 1828, the year in which the United States made a Treaty of Limits with Mexico, Gallaher & White's map is one of three exceptionally significant maps with regard to the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. Along with Henry Tanner's Map of 1826 and John Disturnell's Map of 1846-1857, the White, Gallaher & White map documents the cartographical sequence that resulted in the boundary dispute following the Treaty. A growing demand in Latin America for a map with all the legends and place names in Spanish prompted the publication of The White, Gallaher & White map of 1828. While the Tanner map was published in English, White, Gallaher & White translated Tanner's English title, legends, and place names into Spanish and slightly enlarged Tanner's map and its scale. Disturnell bought the plates from White, Gallaher & White and used them for printing his successful maps of 1846-1858. The Disturnell map claimed a great place in history when it was used in negotiating the end of the US-Mexican War, extending the western boundary of the United States to the Pacific Ocean. The White, Gallaher & White map was engraved by Balch & Stiles of New York. Their name, along with the copyright notice was imperfectly removed, appearing faintly on all Disturnell maps printed from these plates, from 1846 through 1858. A rare and incredibly significant piece, White, Gallaher & White's version of Mapa de los Estados Unidos de Méjico remains imbedded in the history of the relationship between the United States and Mexico..

        Engravings of the Principal Mosaic Pavements Which Have Recently Been Discovered in the Course of the Last and Present Centuries.Also Engravings of Several Subjects in Stained Glass. [with] Appendix. [with] Second Appendix. [with] Many Printed Prospectuses and 'Unpublished' Plates.

      Winterton, Lincolnshire: The Author, 1799 - 1828. - Elephant Folio. 4 volumes comprising a total of 103 engraved plates, many hand coloured, one on silk; together with a total of approximately 40 printed prospectuses for collections and individual engravings from the work. William Fowler (1761 ? 1832) was a Lincolnshire builder whose records of Roman tessellated pavements won him many admirers. He visited the sites, took meticulous measurements and strove to reproduce the designs and colours as accurately as possible. Following on from his early successes in Lincolnshire he travelled widely throughout England recording not only pavements but also stained glass windows, fonts and architectural views. This large collection comprises the major proportion of his published work including the whole of the first work [27 engravings], the first appendix in its entirety [26 engravings] and 15 out of 28 plates from the second appendix, described in Henry Ball?s monograph of 1869 as ?quite unknown? In addition there are 34 or 35 additional ?unpublished? pieces plus 2 or three duplicates and the portrait of Henry Fowler as painted by Joseph and engraved by Bond. Individual plates are occasionally seen but large collections are uncommon, this being one of the largest collections to appear on the market in recent times. See The Book Collector, Autumn 2004, pp. 381 - 408 for Colin Franklin's description of the work.

        Carte de la Nord-Ouest de L'Amerique Voyage de Vancouver No 3 58°, 52' de latitude et 207°, 20' de longitude

      Paris 1828 - Carte de la Nord-Ouest de L'Amerique Voyage de Vancouver No 3 58°, 52' de latitude et 207°, 20' de longitude Depicts Alaskan coastline (Gulf of Alaska) Captain George Vancouver (1757-1798) Coastal Surveys of the Pacific Northwest, Alaska and Hawaii from Atlas du Voyage de Vancouver Paris: 1823-1828 Copperplate engravings 42 ½" x 32 ½" framed Captain George Vancouver was British Naval officer best known for his explorations of the Pacific Northwest of America. George Vancouver was born in King’s Lynn, Norfolk, England on June 22, 1757. He began his naval career aboard the HMS Resolution, captained by James Cook. Upon completion of two voyages with Captain Cook, Vancouver was then commissioned as a Lieutenant aboard the HMS Martin surveying coast lines. It is this work that would set him apart. Following the Nootka Crisis (which resulted in skirmishes between the Spanish and the English as both tried to assert their authority over the territory), Captain Vancouver was given the Discovery and the Chatham and charged with the task of surveying the Pacific Northwest coastline. The mission was time consuming as the Discovery and the Chatham were too large to fit into the many channels and inlets of the coastline; instead small ship boats were sent in every direction to examine the coast up close. Vancouver’s maps were so great in detail that they were used as the key reference for coastal navigation for generations to come. The English sea captain encountered aid from both Native Americans and other explorers in the area. Vancouver returned to the Sandwich Islands before completing his America surveys. Once finished in the Pacific Northwest, Vancouver and his men sailed south along the Americas before rounding the tip of Cape Horn and returning home. In addition to his contributions to navigational records of the Pacific Northwest, he also contributed many surveys of Australia, the Galapagos Islands, the Sandwich Islands and Mexico and Chile. His ships also introduced new plants such as the orange and cattle to the Sandwich Islands. Captain Vancouver was welcomed home to a flurry of political charges and was challenged to a duel by Thomas Pitt. To weak to respond, Vancouver lived the remainder of his days in obscurity. He was buried in a modest grave in Petersham, Surrey in 1798.

        AN AMERICAN DICTIONARY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE.

      S. Converse. Printed by Hezekiah Howe, New Haven. 1828 - FIRST EDITION. 2 4to Volumes. (11.8 x 9.2 inches). Portrait frontispiece. With the additions leaf but without the initial advert leaf. Some minor spots to a few leaves but overall a very good, bright and clean, wide margined copy with the fore and lower edges untrimmed. Finely bound in recent period-style binding of full diced Russia. Spines with wide raised bands, each with triple gilt rules. Compartments ruled, decorated and lettered in gilt. Elaborate decorative gilt borders to the boards. Marbled endpapers. A bright and attractive copy of this famous dictionary. --------- First edition of the dictionary that almost at once became, and has remained, the standard English dictionary in the United States; one of 2,500 copies. Webster wanted to stress the political separation from Britain by the cultivation of a distinct American language, and so, under the influence of his friend Benjamin Franklin, turned his attention to "a reformed mode of spelling" and gave many printed American words their distinctive appearance. "The book marked a definite advance in modern lexicography, as it included many non-literary terms and paid great attention to the language actually spoken. Moreover, his definitions of the meanings of words were accurate and concise (Sir James Murray, editor of the Oxford English Dictionary, called him 'a born definer of words') and have for the greater part stood the test of time superbly well. In fact, Webster succeeded in breaking the fetters imposed upon American English by Dr Johnson, to the ultimate benefit of the living languages of both countries" (Printing and the Mind of Man). -------- Grolier, American 36; PMM 291; Skeel 583; Sabin 102335.

Two volumes. 12mos. Linen and original printed glazed papercovered boards with applied paper spine labels. Each volume bears on the front pastedown the bookplate of James Fenimore Cooper, Jr., grandson of the American author. Laid in are an old bookseller's description, and a letter dated in 1916, to Mrs. James Fenimore Cooper, Jr., sending the books along, and discussing some of the bibliographical niceties. Front joint professionally and neatly repaired, and the spine label partly perished on *First Series,* small stains to the boards, chip to the unprinted front fly in *Second Series*, still a nice set, in the uncommon original boards, in better condition than one might reasonably expect of these famous, autobiographical essays, and with an interesting association.

The pseudonym stuck, however, and it allowed Lamb to develop a persona with which he examined a variety of subjects with celebrated humor and style. Probably Lamb's best work, though he is also remembered for his children's versions of Shakespeare and Homer which he wrote with his sister Mary (who became his charge after she had a bout of insanity in 1796 and killed their mother).

Cette édition est la première en date d’une série de réécritures de cette biographie. C’est à partir de cette date, 1828, que naît véritablement le mythe littéraire immortalisé par Balzac et Victor Hugo sous les visages de Vautrin et Jean Valjean. Forçat à la chaîne de Brest puis au bagne de Toulon dont il s’évadera, Vidocq proposera ses services d’indicateur à la préfecture de police pour devenir le chef de la brigade de sûreté à la fin de sa carrière. Introuvable en quatre volumes, l’édition se présente ici dans une condition exceptionnelle : en demi-veau glacé romantique uniforme exempt de rousseurs. Condition : 4 vol. in-8, en demi-veau glacé brun, dos plat orné de fleurons en à froid et filets droits (reliure romantique), tranches jaspées. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
