        Pêche Francaise de la Baleine dans le Mers du Sud, en 1829

      1829 - Offprint from Le Navigateur, journal des naufrages et de autres evenements nautiques. September 1829. Frontispiece & a folding lithograph plate. 8vo. Fine in quarter calf over old marbled boards, spine gilt. [ii], 56pp, Havre, Hue, A crisp, clean copy of this rare offprint. The work includes the two relevant plates from the original publication of Le Navigateur, a journal which is only held at the Bibliotheque Nationale de France. The frontispiece illustrates the Cachelot and Baleine Franche whales. The folding plate, Peche de la Baleine, is by Brochy after Precourt and depicts a whaling scene. The timing of this publication is interesting. In December 1829, the French government sought to encourage whaling by awarding each ship bound for the northern seas 90 francs per man and those that travelled further afield 180 francs per man, regardless of their catch. It's only too likely that this offprint was issued as a result of this ordnance. Much of the information in this article is drawn from the accounts of M. Venard and M. Descarrieres captains of the Franco-American whalers George and Albert and the l'Entreprise. The work includes a description of different types of whales, discusses migration routes (referencing the North-West Passage) and natural enemies (the killer whale and sharks), harpooning techniques, mooring dead whales, and the importance of having a surgeon on board. The author is clearly concerned about safety onboard and much of material relates to this. However, of real interest is the account of tensions onboard the ships between the French and American sailors - the French were upset by what they perceived as breaches of protocol by American sailors and their lack of formal training. The Americans in turn aggrieved by the unsympathetic attitude of the French and this quickly led to a violent confrontation. The matters were brought to a naval tribunal on the return to France which saw the vindication of the American complaints. This did not, however, prevent a second voyage departing almost immediately. Almost certainly, these whalers were a part of the fleet first established by William Roch, Sr at Dunkirk. His South Sea Fishery routinely sent whalers into the Southern Atlantic and, by the time of publication, the South Pacific. This work also discusses the effect of the Revolutionary War on whaling. Information on the Franco-American whaling fleet is rare. We have only been able to locate two copies at the Bibliotheque Nationale de France and the University of Glasgow. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        An autograph letter signed to 'My dear King' (the Reverend Arthur Septimus King, son of Captain Phillip Parker King); two pages, small octavo, dated 9 July 1846, regarding assistance with finding him a curacy

      'I can ... write to the Bishop of Norwich, who has a great respect for your Father, to ask his advice about it, and I am sure he will do all he can for you, consistently with his rules of duty.' Rear-Admiral Sir William Edward Parry, Arctic explorer, spent the years 1829-34 in Australia as Commissioner of the Australian Agricultural Company, the role Captain King took over 'for ten eventful years' from 8 April 1834 (Dictionary of National Biography, and the Australian Dictionary of Biography). This serves to establish a connection between the parties (as if the hydrographical one wasn't enough). As for the rest, the 'career of Parry as an arctic explorer is to be best studied in his own Journals; his Life, written by his son Edward in 1857, which ran through many editions, dwells, with a natural bias, on the religious side of his character, which was strongly marked' (DNB). Accordingly, we won't go on about the glories of the polar days, but rest content in the knowledge that this item reflects a part of the whole ...

      1829. Fine. RARE FIRST HAND ACCOUNT OF THE BATTLE OF NAVARINO: THE LAST MAJOR CONFLICT INVOLVING SAILING SHIPS [ANONYMOUS -- probably Charles M'Pherson]. LIFE ON BOARD A MAN-OF-WAR; INCLUDING A FULL ACCOUNT OF THE BATTLE OF NAVARINO. BY A BRITISH SEAMAN. Glasgow: Blackie, Fullarton, & Co.; Arch. Fullarton & Co. Edinburgh; W. F. Wakeman, Dublin; and James Duncan, London. M. DCCC. XXIX. [1829]. First edition. viii, 193, [1] pp. 12mo., in a 20th century binding of three-quarter dark green calf, lighter green cloth sides, with delicate, gilt-stamped floral rolls, gilt lettering between decorative double-rules on spine, with the initials "P. & J. H." stamped at the base. Modern nautical themed bookplate on first fly-leaf. Early ink ownership at head of title-page. Fine. This is a first-hand account of the Battle of Navarino, the last major action involving sailing ships. It was written by a British seaman who served aboard the 76-gun battleship `The Genoa.' Navarino is a small port on the west coast of the Pelaponnese, now called Pylos. The battle, fought on 20 October 1827, was an affair between the great powers of the day: a small, combined force of the British, French and Russian navies against a larger fleet comprised of Ottoman and Egyptian vessels. The European forces were there to enforce the 1827 Treaty of London by establishing peace between Greek patriots and their Ottoman rulers. While the Greeks nationalists agreed to an armistice, the Turks did not and continued their ruthless campaign against the local Greek population. Having been given the vague and contradictory instruction to engage in a "friendly demonstration of force," the British and French squadrons sailed into the small bay merely to intimidate the Ottoman and Egyptian fleet anchored there. It has never been determined exactly which side shot first, but a battled ensued. The ships jostled for position within the cramped bay as they fired point-blank upon one another, inflicting as much damage as possible. Both sides fought valiantly. Although the Ottoman and Egyptian fleet would have been favored on paper, it was clear after the Russian squadron joined the fray, and after three hours of battle, that the Ottoman fleet was virtually destroyed and, amazingly, not a single European ship was lost. The battle was a turning point for the Ottoman Empire and the start of i

        The Poetical Works of Coleridge, Shelley, and Keats. Complete in One Volume

      A. and W. Galignani, Paris 1829 - xi, 225, vii, 75 p. 24 cm. Title page vignette. Half leather with orange marbled paper boards. Text printed in double column. Respined with original spine reattached. Hinges repaired internally. New front free endpaper. Bookplate and ink inscription on front pastedown. Ink stamp on bookplate and title page. Foxing. Inscription at bottom of p. 38 in first part and ink mark on p. 3 of same section. This volume constitutes the first collected edition of Keats and the second collected works of Coleridge and Shelley. The Parisian publisher, Galignani, was famous for its pirated editions (Sir Walter Scott referred to the shop as the "old pirate's den") but the firm did have the cooperation of family members and literary friends of all three poets when assembling this volume. For example, each poet's work is preceded by a short life of the author, the memoir of Keats being produced by Leigh Hunt. Hunt also sent along some unpublished Keats poems in his possession to be included. Keats' literary executor, Charles Armitage Brown, disliked Hunt's portrayal of his friend, but Brown's own biography of Keats was not ready in time for this edition and was not published until 1937. The memoir of Shelley was written by his wife Mary Shelley who also helped the publication of this edition by allowing the publisher access to Shelley's papers.

        Essays on the Pursuit of Truth, on the Progress of Knowledge, and on the Fundamental Principle of all Evidence and Expectation.

      London: Printed for R. Hunter, 1829 - Octavo (204 x 135 mm). Original blue paper boards, paper label to spine printed in black, edges uncut. Extremities worn and bumped, spine creased, label a little chipped, hinges gently cracked but firm, occasional light foxing to contents, overall a very good copy. First edition of the economist and philosopher's treatise on truth and knowledge, an extension of several subjects touched upon in Bailey's earlier Essays on the Formation and Publication of Opinions (1821). Bailey (c.1791–1870) was a Sheffield merchant who became the first chairman of the Sheffield Banking Company in 1831. He wrote widely in both economics and philosophy, and in reference to Bailey's major economic work, A Critical Dissertation on the Nature, Measure and Causes of Value (1825), Schumpeter judged it as "among the masterpieces of criticism in our field, and it should suffice to secure to its author a place in or near front rank in the history of scientific economics" (Schumpeter, p. 486).

      France. 1829 - 48 hand coloured aquatint engraved plates of Swedish regional costumes and some scenes of places including the mine at Fahlun and a traditional country house at Ornas. The plates still have the tissue guards, are very clean and fresh to view and touch. The printed paper covers dated 1836 are unusually pre-dated inside. The title page gives the date of 1829. There is a later half-morocco leather spine and corners, the boards all original and a limp thick card rather than a stiff hardback. This has left the boards with a few creases not seen but felt. Full quarto (4to). 1829. * The book WAS published just as a series of engravings (see World cat). There are 20 Swedish regions/districts represented in the 47 full page plates + the rare engraved title page again hand-coloured. It does have a previous owners name to the top area "Joyce Bankes from her great-aunt Minnie 1918". The patterned endpaper seem to be all original. The plates as stated unusually clean and fresh.

        Zwei Jahre in Neu Südwales...

      Leipzig: Hartmann, 1829. Octavo, original half roan. A very good copy of the uncommon German translation of Cunningham's valuable account of the colony, considered an Australian classic: 'an acute observer and possessed a pleasant literary style, so that Two Years in New South Wales remains the best as well as the fullest picture of the colony in the 1820s' (ADB). The German translation and additional notes are by A. Kaiser.Cunningham made four voyages to New South Wales as surgeon-superintendent of convict ships and had taken up land on the Hunter River in 1825 before writing this most important account of the evolving and distinctive characteristics of the Australian people. His observations on the unique Australian vocabulary and accent, as well as on the physical characteristics of the Australian-born youth is the classic statement of the early colonial era.Ferguson originally knew the National Library copy only, but added the Mitchell and the then Public Library of Victoria to his census. As the title-page notes, the translation was based on the second revised edition of the original work (London, 1827). The paper shows some characteristic browning; original half roan, worn with repairs at the corners.

An internationally famous opera librettist, poet, and Roman Catholic priest, Da Ponte had removed to the United States in 1805, where he introduced opera to New York City. He produced the first full performance of Mozart's Don Giovanni in the United States in 1825. The publication and importance of Da Ponte's Memorie was not widely recognized at the time, even in Italy. Montani's two-part review was originally published in the Antologia Fiorentia of Vieusseux (in April and May 1828). It was sent to Da Ponte by his friend Filippo Pananti after Montani had had it translated into English by his students and published in New York on the occasion of Da Ponte's 80th birthday.Scarce in the trade.

Cahier d?études du célèbre naturaliste suisse Louis Agassiz, alors âgé de 22 ans, provenance en ligne directe de la famille du savant. Plusieurs pages sont numérotées. En feuilles non reliées d?une écriture autographe. Louis Agassiz fut nommé en 1848, professeur de zoologie à Harvard University; un des plus grands enseignants en biologie et en sciences naturelles du 19e siècle. Naturaliste - géologue - Les observations de ce savant sont considérées comme le début de la géologie moderne des glaciers. »Agassiz's observations were the beginning of modern glacial geology«Louis Agassiz wurde als Sohn eines protestantischen Pastors in Vully-le-Haut (heute: Haut-Vully) im Ortsteil Môtier, in der Schweiz geboren. Zuerst zu Hause erzogen, verbrachte er vier Jahre an einer höheren Schule in Biel/Bienne und studierte danach in Lausanne. Mit der Zielrichtung, Mediziner zu werden, studierte er ab 1824 an den Universitäten von Zürich, Heidelberg und München. In Heidelberg und München war er Mitglied des Corps Helvetia. Parallel dazu erweiterte er seine Kenntnisse in den Naturwissenschaften, insbesondere in Botanik. 1829 promovierte er als Doktor der Philosophie in Erlangen und 1830 als Doktor der Medizin in München. Nach seinem Umzug nach Paris wurden Alexander von Humboldt und Georges Cuvier seine Mentoren, die ihn ermutigten, sich in Geologie und Zoologie weiterzuentwickeln. Sehr schnell entwickelte er eine Vorliebe für die Ichthyologie, die sein bevorzugtes Forschungsgebiet für den Rest seines Lebens wurde. (Wikipedia). Please notify before visiting to see a book.
