        La Flore et la Pomone Francaises, ou histoire et figure en couleur, des fleurs et des fruits de France ou naturalises sur le sol francais.

      1828. Paris, chez l'auteur, 1828 (-1835). 4 volumes. Royal-8vo (260 x 170mm). With 540 (of 544) fine engraved plates printed in colours with handfinishing. Contemporary black half morocco, gilt ornamented spines. The work was issued in 136 (138?) parts. It was planned to publish 800 plates but in so far as we know the regular publication was terminated with plate 544. Jean Henri Jaume Saint Hilaire (1772-1845) was a French botanist and botanical artist. "It is not until the beginning of the nineteenth century that precise scientific drawing commences to characterize French flower plates but with the transition the French artists such as Jaume St. Hilaire, Bessa, Turpin and Redoute rose almost immediately to world pre-eminence. These names are collector's high points" (Dunthorne p. 4). Blunt considers Jaume Saint-Hilaire a distinguised botanist and praises his 'Plantes de France' with its 1000 pleasant little stipple plates. Jaume Saint-Hilaire studied flower painting under van Spaendonck in Paris. Some occasional foxing, latin names written in pencil at foot of plates. Dunthorne 160; Stafleu & Cowan 3311; Johnston 943 quoting 552 plates..

Leider ohne die legendären Fisch-Abbildungen.Georges Leopold Chretien Frederic Dagobert, Baron de Cuvier (1769 -1832), französischer Naturforscher. Georges Cuvier gilt als wissenschaftlicher Begründer der Paläontologie und machte die vergleichende Anatomie zu einer Forschungsdisziplin. Er untersuchte die Anatomie verschiedener Lebewesen und verglich systematisch alle Ähnlichkeiten und Unterschiede. Diese Studien ermöglichten ihm, aus der Existenz einiger Knochen die Gestalt anderer Knochen und die zugehörigen Muskeln abzuleiten. So gelang ihm schließlich die Rekonstruktion eines ganzen Tierkörpers aus nur wenigen Teilen.

        Autograph letter signed.

      East India College, Hertford Heath, 17. III. 1828.. 4to (185 x 227 mm). 4 pp. including integral address leaf. In cloth slip case.. Important unpublished autograph letter on the definition of wealth, written by Malthus from the East India College where he was Professor of Political Economy to Nassau William Senior (1790-1864), discussing Senior's definition of wealth in his lecture on mercantile wealth in his "Three Lectures on the Transmission of Precious Metals from Country to Country and the Mercantile Theory of Wealth" which were delivered in Oxford in June 1827 and first published in 1828. Malthus writes: "You know however that I consider it of the utmost importance to the progress of the sciences of Political Economy, and to its useful practical application to confine the term wealth to those objects the increase or decrease of which we can form some estimate of." - Senior was First Drummond Professor of Political Economy, Oxford 1825-30, a highly original classical economist, making original contributions to the theory of value, rent, population, money and international trade. But Senior was unsympathetic to the Malthusian population theory. Senior's "Two Lectures on Population" (1829) was one of the first criticisms of the Malthusian theory, based on the argument that the theory is refuted by empirical evidence about rising living standards despite growth of population. - Page 3 shows two paper repairs with loss of 3 or 4 words; ink stain on the final page.

        Autograph letter signed ("JFW Herschel").

      "Austria", 24. VII. 1828.. 4to. 4 pp. on double leaf. With autograph address. Together with five related letters, notes, and a drawing.. An extraordinary letter to Mr. Mr. Henn, discussing Henn's paper on object glasses and the planetary ephemerides: "It is so long since I wrote to you, you will think I have forgotten you. It is not so, but I have been so overwhelmed with business that I have been obliged to neglect my correspondence -much to my regret. Let me first acknowledge your communication on object glasses and on the planetary ephemerides, if I have not already done so, with the tables and the letters accompanying them. They are printed (not the letters) in the forthcoming volume of the Astron. society's transactions. I have now the proof sheets of the former before me, on which allow me some remarks. 1. The second value off as it stands in your MS. is incorrect the factor 1/r + 1/s being accidentally omitted. I have rectified this in the printed copy. 2. You say [... a quote in German, followed by an equation ...]. Now this is not true of the Spherical aberration itself but (if instead of l/n2 p we write x2 /2n2 p the x2 /2 having been inadvertently or perhaps for brevity omitted by you) it is true [symbol] the function which in my paper on object glasses referred to by you, is called ? is equal to your [symbol] multiplied by [an equation]. In order to rectify this with as little alteration of your words as possible I have substituted for [a German phrase], in the English translation (by Dr. Tiarks) the words 'the coefficient of spherical aberration' and explained in a note that this 'coefficient' means the function above mentioned. 3. When you say '[a German phrase] &c' you seem to say it [doubles] as a theorem that The Spherical aberration of a double lens is Equal to the Sum of the Spherical aberration of its component lenses. Not only no such theorem can be taken for granted, but it is not correct in fact It is true that the 'coefficient' of Spherical aberration in a double lens is the Sum of the 'coefficient of S.A.' ff its component ones, but this is by no means self evident, but requires all the proof (a pretty complicated one) which is given in my paper-to which I have therefore annexed a reference. 4. In deriving my Equations (A) and (z) you have made W = dn/dn1, p=1-W, p1 = 1 W/W, and throughout your paper you have regarded the ratio of the dispersion powers (which I have called W in my Equations) as the same with that of dn: dnl whereas it is in reality dn/n -1: nd1 /n1-1 and the value of W which satisfies my equations (A) (z) is not W = dn/dn1, but W = dn/dn1 X n1 - 1/n - 1. I have therefore made this correction, and in the remainder of your paper have represented the fraction dn/dn1 not by W but by another letter [symbol] to avoid confusion. 5. You have remarked 'that the terms + [equation] and- [equation]' [it should be[ equation]] '[followed by a quote in German].' If this remark be well founded, all my theory of aberrations falls to the ground I am convinced, if you will consider the matter again, you will coincide with me that this paragraph ought not to stand, and admit that I have done right in striking it out of the printed copy. At all events, as you deduce no conclusion from it in what follows, its omission no way vitiates any part of what you have said. 6. In the first example of your very real and useful practical formulae, you have given, you have taken n = 1.53, n1 = 1.60 and you say 'zersXeiing dn = 0.0, dn1= 0.04 also W = 0.25'. Since the values of dn and dn1 are 0.01 and 0.04 the true ratio of dispersive powers or of focal lengths of the glasses is not 0.25 but 0.25 X 60/53. I have therefore struck out 'W =' and left dn/dn1 = 0.25, after which, the numerical calculations, in which W is not involved, are (I suppose) correct I cannot but remark however that no crown x flint glass hitherto met with will give dn/dn1 = 0.01/0.04. The lowest value of [equation] I know of is 0.425 for glasses. So that this example though good is a numerical illustration has no practical meaning. I cannot imagine by what mode of experimenting you have got such very small values as 0.004 and 0.008 in the specimens of glass you tried, for dn and dn1. I presume they do not relate to extreme rays, but I wish you had mentioned what rays they were determined for, and by what [means]. I hope you will now not think me a very severe critic when I tell you that I think very highly of your paper, as a most useful practical work, and which promises to be of the greatest service. A gentleman named Rogers of Lieth has made a considerable improvement (as promises) in the construction of Large telescopes -he corrects a large disc of Crown by a compound lens of crown x flint of much smaller aperture [followed by a sketch] thus. Vide the Vol. III of the Trans. Ast. Soc. I am sorry you should have thought it necessary to send the money for Dr. Pearson's book as I never intended you to pay for it at all events the (2 13 shill) you mention to have sent by Perther...has never come to hand. I am delighted to see that you are not contented to observe but deduce results. Your catalogues of stars whose proper motions come out from your obsns so well, are excellent examples. I wish all astronomers would go & do likewise work muchdispute little-use their eyes & draw conclusions the best they can, and trust the next sensation with their fame. I shall shortly find a way to send you my 3d Catalogue of new double stars- this completes my first thousand. What a wonderful work Struve's Catalogue is! My nebulae get on slowly but steadily. Within the last few days I have been examining the Satellites of Uranus. About two there remains no doubt-and I am almost sure there are more, but the planet is most unfavorably situated [...]". - Seal tear repaired.

        Histoire Naturelle des Poissons.

      1828. Paris, F.G. Levrault, 1828-1849. 22 volumes. 4to (254 x 210mm). With 657 (70 plain) beautifully handcoloured engraved plates. Later blue cloth, gilt lettered spines. The very rare large paper issue of the most important iconography on fishes published in the 19th century. The work is very reasonably priced as the text and plates are partly seriously affected by foxing. The plates of volumes 19 and 20 are not coloured. The work is usually found in 8vo with either plain or coloured plates. The work is important as it gives the correct Linnaean nomenclature of many fishes from Cook's voyages. "Cuvier and his assistant, Achille Valenciennes, did not actually see the voyage drawings; instead, they were to be plentifully supplied with tracings and sketched copies by a remarkable traveller, writer and artist called Sarah Bowdich. Together with her husband Thomas Bowdich, she had spent three-and-a-half years in Paris where they became close friends of Cuvier... The Bowdich copies of fish drawn by Georg Forster and other artists are in pencil on now-faded scraps of paper, and include a number of New Zealand species. They are bound in with the original Cuvier manuscript from which emerged the enormous 'Histoire naturelle des Poissons' (1824-49) in which some further fish from the Cook voyages were properly described and named..." (Andrews, The Southern Ark p. 57). "Nearly all that was known about fishes during the first half of the nineteenth century was summarized by Georges Cuvier and his pupil and successor, Achille Valenciennes, in the monumental 'Histoire Naturelle des Poissons'. ... (It) contains descriptions of 4,514 nominal species, the greater portion, approximately two-thirds, written by Valenciennes after the death of Cuvier in 1832. To-day the work of Cuvier and Valenciennes is indispensable to systematic ichthyology ... In many parts of the world people assisted Cuvier with notes, manuscripts, and particularly specimens. For many years the Jardin des Plantes was the center where all ichthyological materials were deposited. Thus, Cuvier was able to bring together the richest and largest contemporary collection of fishes. Althogether, his vast communication network, huge world-wide collections, and extensive ichthyological library, made Paris the center of ichthyology and Cuvier the foremost ichthyologist in the world" (T.W. Pietsch in 'Archives of Nat. Hist, 12, 1'). The plates belong to the very best ever made, no ichthyological work equals the delicacy of colouring and precision of engraving. Nissen. Schöne Fischbücher, 46; B.M.(Nat. Hist.)I, 411..

Two quarto volumes (pages 274 x 222 mm), with double fly-leaves beginning and end of each volume, frontis portrait, and signatures A-K(4), 1-113(4), 114(2) for the first volume and: Title, 1-115(4), 116(2) for the second volume. Complete with the "Additions and Corrections" leaf at the end of volume 2. Unpaginated, but with 498 leaves in the first volume (not including the frontis portrait) and 463 leaves in volume 2. Dictionary entries in triple column. & & Bound in contemporary full sheep with original red and black morocco spine labels and marbled end pages. The spine labels have been patched, board corners repaired and prelims through the title page in each volume cleaned. But here&#39;s something you won&#39;t see very often, Webster&#39;;s in a contemporary sheepskin binding that hasn&#39;t been rebacked and with the joints holding. An attractive, authentic set. & & Noah Webster wrote over 70,000 entries for his American dictionary, 12,000 of which had never before appeared in a dictionary. His work was an orphanage for all the bastardized English, French and even Indian words that had been assimilated into the American vernacular during the 200 years that American English had been evolving. Many words were given their American spelling in his dictionary for the first time as a way to further distance American English from that of Great Britain and also in an effort at uniformity and consistency in spelling. Uniquely American words, like "hickory" and "chowder," appear for the first time in Webster&#39;s dictionary, embraced as a part of the budding American dialect and culture. & & "...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 meaning of words were accurate and concise... 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 (201), to the ultimate benefit of the living languages of both countries." (PMM 291).

This copy, however, does have the separately printed ""Advertisement"" leaf (dated Nov. 28, 1828) which is almost always lacking (distinct from the Advertisement appearing on G3 and G4 in the first volume). The November 28 Advertisement, a loose quarto sheet which was separately published, was ostensibly given by Webster to his subscribers in order that he might &#39;be permitted to make a few statements and explanations which would have been less appropriate in the body of the work.&#39; Skeel makes no note of this separately printed sheet being exclusive to subscribers&#39; copies.

        Our Country. Vol. 1. No. 11. September 13, 1828

      Hager's-Town [Md]: Printed alternately at the Offices of the Torch Light & Farmers' Register, 1828. First edition. Self wrappers. A very good copy, a few brown spots and folds, two marginal tears with some expert repairs, period signature in margin. . Our Country was a presidential campaign newspaper started by supporters of John Quincy Adams in his fight against Andrew Jackson and the newly formed Democrats in what was one of the dirtiest presidential campaigns ever. The paper published 18 issues, and in one issue inserted one of the now famous Coffin handbills. In this issue the editors tie Jackson to Aaron Burr, his conspiracy, and trial for treason: "He [Jackson] was either a traitor to Burr in November 1805 when he wrote his letter to Claiborne, or he was a traitor to his country in December of the same year, when he took Burr into his house, and appeared in the streets and public places with him as his bosom friend and pledged supporter." The paper publishes an extract from a financial account showing moneys owed to Jackson by Burr for the purchase of ships for use in his conspiracy. Further attacks against Jackson followed, using the words of Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Hart Benton, and others. Scarce. OCLC locates four copies: three in Maryland and one at the Amer. Antiquarian Society. We could find none at auction except a copy of the prospectus for the paper which notes it is to be a corrective for the "flood of false and spurious intelligence which has been let loose... principally by the opposition presses, by which the public mind has been... misled and corrupted.

      Date unknown, circa 1828.. 16 lines handwritten in ink on half a sheet of notepaper without address, unfolded size: 320 x 205 mm, 13 x 8 inches. Addressed to Miss Sarah Lachlan for whom he had written the acrostic poem Un Solitaire: " Dear Miss Lachlan, Emma has so few days to stay with me, that it would be painful to me to part with her for one whole one. But I will bring her to tea with you on Monday, and you shall let us go before 8. I enclose your brother an autograph of Jekyll, Bencher of the Temple, and the reputed wit of the Bar for the last 50 years. Your brother is too young to have heard much about him, but he has been widely known in his profession, as a capital epigrammatist etc. and was the reigning joker of his age. With Emma&#39;s kindest love to your aunt & self. Yours truly C Lamb, Saturday evening." The letter refers to Emma Isola the adopted daughter of Charles and Mary. She was an accomplished amateur artist and did a drawing to go with the poem Un Solitaire written for Miss Lachlan. With the letter is a copy of the poem in an unknown hand on a pale yellow leaf to which is pasted a brief note seemingly in Lamb&#39;s hand: "Mr Lamb has scribbled on a vacant leaf, which may be torn out without ceremony, if his nonsense is out of place. He will in that case beg leave to try again. Miss Isola requests him to return thanks for a sight of the album, & could wish her contribution better". There are very slight textual differences in this version of the poem from the usual printed one. Finally there is a sheet of notepaper with a poem of 3 4-line stanzas by Mary Lamb beginning: "My sweetly modest tranquil Child / So Humble duteous pensive mild.." addressed to "My Dear Sarah with my earnest prayers for every happiness to attend Her, M L". This seems also to concern Sarah Lachlan and was written for the occasion of her birthday. The letters have been folded twice, remains of a small red seal on Charles Lamb&#39;s, address panel browned on Mary&#39;s, leaf with Un Solitaire has a greetings card pasted to reverse from when it was in an album.

The narrations of what he witnessed are tinged with the peculiar glow of the author?s temperament. Beltrami must have moved in a gigantic world, if he saw external objects through the same media with which he viewed his own person and accomplishments, " Field, Indian Bibliography, p. 28.

      Philadelphia: Carey, Lea, and Carey. 1828. First. First American Editions and the true first complete edition of the second series of essays (the second series wasn't published in England until 1833 as The Last Essays of Elia). 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. In 1820 Lamb invented the pseudonym for his first essay, about the work place of his brother, by taking the name of a clerk no longer employed there. 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). .

        Andreas Zaimis. "Zaimis,

      Philhellenic: Munich, Karl August Krazeisen. 1828-1831., 1831. Black & white lithograph of Andreas Zaimis from Krazeizen&#39;s "Bildnisse ausgezeichneter Greichen und Philhellene nebst einigen Ansichten und Trachten." ["Portraits of famous Greeks and Philellenes, along with some views and costumes designed from nature and published by Karl Krazeisen"). verso blank. Head and shoulders portrait with printed signature below. Andreas Asimakou Zaimis (1791â&#128;&#147;1840) was a Greek freedom fighter and government leader during the Greek War of Independence. Born in Kalavryta, in the northern Peloponnesos, Zaimis was a leader of armed men who fought the Ottoman Turks, ultimately securing Greece&#39;s freedom. In 1826, Zaimis was chosen as the leader of the interim Greek government. His son, Thrasivoulos Zaimis, and grandson, Alexandros Zaimis, would also serve as Prime Ministers of Greece. Image bright and clean; light spotting to blank borders. Karl August Krazeisen 1794- 1878. was an amateur artist and soldier in 1812 he entered the Bavarian army and took part in the 1813/1814&#39;s war against Napoleon&#39;s domination. In 1826, having by then promoted to lieutenant, along with 11 other Bavarians went to Greece,as aide to Carl von Heydeck where the Greek War of Independence was going through a critical phase, with the entrance of the Egyptians It was the first public action to support struggle of Greeks, taken by small European state of Bavarian King and Philhellen Ludwig. Krazeisen was not a professional artist. But having the ability to draw, he used his stay in Greece with historical insight, creating portraits of the heroes of the war, the sketches of camps, costumes, uniforms,and battle plans. He returned to Munich in 1827,and published his Greek album, from 1828-31 which promoted the Greek cause throughout Europe As Krazeisen had drawn all Greek leaders living at the time of his stay in Greece, his album constitutes a principal source and the most comprehensive collection of its kind: he remained the only artist to have portrayed the Greek national heroes during their lifetime. The newly founded modern Greek state honoured him with the Order of the Redeemer Under the command of Charles Nicolas Fabvier Krazeisen was present at the battles of the Acropolis, Athens from November 1826 till April 1827 (Battle of Phaleron), he is portrayed by Theodoros Vrysakis in his famous painting of the event "The camp of Georgios Karaiskakis"(1855); indeed it is clear that Vrysakis used the portraits of Krazaeisen as reference for the painting.

        La Defaite "La Defaite" or"Le Giaour, vainqueur d&#39;Hassan

      Philhellenic: Paris Jazet. 1828. Black & white mezzotint by Horace Vernet inspired by Lord Byron&#39;s poem "The Giaour "from "Turkish Tales "1813 In the particular episode from Le Giaour portrayed in the present work, the eponymous hero is seen having avenged the murder of his mistress by killing Hassan, her cruel Turkish master. Dark Impression; overall light spotting, most noticeable in margins.;scratch to upper right corner of image. Le Giaour is a subject borrowed by Vernet from Lord Byron&#39;s poem - the first of his Turkish Tales - published in 1813. Vernet would have known the work through Amede Pichot&#39;s translation. The vivid colour and drama of the Turkish Tales provided a rich source book for a generation of artists, Romantic and Classicist alike, eager to support the Greek cause in the War of Independence from their Turkish overlords. The Salons of 1824, 1827 and 1831, as well as many independent Paris exhibitions, including two at the Galerie Lebrun organised as charitable functions specifically "Au profit des grecs"saw numerous portrayals of Greek motifs. The Salon of 1827, for instance, included some 14 other Phillhelene-inspired works alongside Vernet&#39;s rendering of La Giaour. The Salon painting of La Giaour was engraved by Jazet in 1828; he added a rocky landscape. Philhellenic The Giaour La Defaite
