        The Fortunate Union, a Romance,

      London: Printed for the Oriental Translations Fund, and sold by J. Murray; Parbury, Allen & Co., and Howell & Stewart,, 1829. translated from the Chinese Original, with Notes and Illustrations. To which is added a Chinese Tragedy. Two volumes octavo. Original cloth, paper labels. Frontispiece to each, volume I a facsimile of the original Chinese title page, in volume II a map; volume I with the violet-printed ad personam subscriber's leaf identifying the copy as that for the Duke of St. Albans. Volume I damp-mottled on the boards, both volumes tanned at the spine, some chipping at heads and tails, cloth split on the lower joint of volume I, light browning, but otherwise very good, entirely unopened. First edition. Davis was the son of a director of the East India Company, and himself was appointed a writer at the Company's Canton factory in 1813. He "early showed marked linguistic and diplomatic aptitude" (ODNB), and accompanied Amherst's Embassy in 1816. Remaining at Canton throughout his career, in 1844 he was appointed Plenipotentiary and Superintendent of trade at Canton, and became the second Governor and Commander-in-chief of Hong Kong, succeeding Sir Henry Pottinger. His confrontation with the Imperial Commissioner over British rights on entry at Hong Kong led to his occupation of the factories there in 1847, forcing an agreement to open Canton in 1849. His success did not meet with official approval, and he was censured and his administration of Hong Kong criticised by a Parliamentary Select committee. He resigned in November 1847. His translations of works from the Chinese, beginning early in his career, capitalised on rising interest in the region and met with great success. His later descriptive works, The Chinese (1836), and Sketches of China (1844), ran to numerous editions.

        New-York Mirror and Ladies Literary Gazette - Volumes VII, Number 3-12 and Volume X, Number 3

      George P. Scott New York: George P. Scott. 1829, 1832. Magazine. Eleven issues. Quartos. [8]pp. Folio sheets folded once. A tiny bit of adhesive along one edge indicates these were once bound but all the folds remain intact with bright whites pages, light wear at the edges and some scattered spots, overall near fine. This weekly New York magazine, which ran for 20 years, was founded by George Pope Scott and Samuel Woodworth in August 1823 to cover the local art and literature scene. It succeeded where numerous other contemporary literary periodicals failed by publishing material attractive to the general audiences rather than to an overly refined one. The newspaper was later renamed The Evening Mirror in 1843 and published a number of articles and poems by Edgar Allan Poe, including his poetic masterpiece, "The Raven." Each issue contains poetry, stories, essays, and articles, most of American origin with a few foreign reprints mixes among them. Selections from these issues include: "Travels in North America" by Captain Basil Hall, a travelogue critical of the United States (Number 8); an article on a young Clara Fisher, later called the world's oldest actress (Number 10); the first appearance of "The Little Genius" by Joseph Dewey Fay (Number 12); and a biography of Robert Fulton with an engraving based on a painting by Henry Inman (Volume X, Number 3). OCLC locates no copies from 1829, though numerous copies from 1832. A remarkably nice collections of this early American literary magazine. .

        Forty Etchings, from Sketches made with the Camera Lucida, In North America, In 1827 and 1828

      Edinburgh and London, 1829. First Edition, large 4to, folding hand-coloured engraved frontispiece map, 40 engraved plates on 20 sheets, minor water-staining on upper blank margins, later half calf over old marbled boards original burgundy morocco label to upper cover, spine gilt and slightly worn. Basil Hall, a captain in the Royal Navy, travelled extensively in the U.S. and Canada. Before leaving England he made the acquaintance of John James Audubon, who supplied him with letters of introduction in North America. Hall travelled down the St. Lawrence and in New England, down the Ohio and Mississippi to New Orleans, across to Savannah, and North along the Atlantic coast to Canada. Hall was hostile to slavery, and "his work contains many excellent descriptions of places and conditions that came under his observation" - Clark. Two camera Lucida drawings, printed on the recto of a leaf, face their accompanying descriptions on the verso of a preceding leaf. The folding map shows the U.S. West to Arkansas and Missouri, and North to Canada. After William Wollaston patented has camera lucida design in 1807, its potential was quickly exploited. Over time his design was refined and the camera lucida became easy to use. It had numerous applications. The camera lucida was employed by the sculptor Francis Chanytrey It had numerous applications. The camera lucida was employed by the sculptor Francis Chantrey, keen to obtain a quick and exact likeness of his subjects, by travellers such as William Bartlet who wanted to share with the public their accurate drawing of lands that were previously represented in a romantic idealised form, and by the medical profession who could obtain detailed scientific drawings of the body. Geologists used camera lucidas, which were easily transported, to produce accurate drawings as did archaeologists who could record their finds exactly as they had discovered them. It was particularly important in producing topographical drawings of America and employed by the controversial writer, Captain Basil Hall who published "Forty Etchings of America" which allowed the British and American public a view of a diverse range of subjects which included slavery. The American Exploring Expedition employed a team of artists equipped with camera lucida to produce images from around the Southern hemisphere. Their Anthropological drawings of Fijian chiefs and native American Indians have survived - along with snapshots of the ships' crews. Howes, H46; Clark III : 47.

        Narrative and Successful Result of a Voyage in the South Seas,

      London: Hurst, Chance, and Co.,, 1829. performed by Order of the Government of British India, to ascertain the Actual Fate of La Pérouse's Expedition, interspersed with Accounts of the Religion, Manners, Customs, and Cannibal Practices of the South Sea Islanders. 2 volumes octavo (215 × 129 mm) Attractively rebound to style, half calf, marbled boards, black morocco labels, plain spine, compartments formed by a gilt foliate roll, oval centre-tools, gilt, edges sprinkled brown. Lithographic frontispiece to each, that of volume I folding, folding coloured lithographic plate and map to volume II. Some marginal discolouration to the frontispiece of volume I, short repair to split to fold, similar repair to a split in the map, light browning and scattered foxing to the text, but overall very good. First edition. "It was during this voyage that the mystery of the disappearance of La Pérouse and his expedition in 1788 was finally solved" (Hill). A Martinique-born sandalwood trader, Dillon had already made a number of adventurous voyages in the South Seas, when in 1826 he stumbled upon a silver sword-guard and a spoon, which he correctly identified as relics of La Pérouse's voyage. Having identified the location from which these objects had been retrieved he informed the officials of the East India Company who "fitted out the Research which, under Dillon's command, sailed from Calcutta in January 1827" (ODNB). After a contentious voyage, during which Dillon was tried and imprisoned at Hobart for the assault and false imprisonment of Robert Tytler, the ship's doctor, he successfully located the wrecks of the Boussole and Astrolabe on the reefs surrounding Vanikoro in the Santa Cruz islands, about 250 miles southeast of the Solomon Islands, and gathered "numerous artefacts unquestionably from La Pérouse's expedition". On his return to India he found himself bankrupted by the failure of his agents, and sailed for England where, meeting with a somewhat mixed reception, he decided to take his finds to France in search of a more appreciative audience. Presenting the the salvaged pieces to Charles X he was rewarded with the Légion d'honneur, an annual pension of 4000 francs, and a grant towards the expenses of the voyage. He published his Narrative in an attempt to "secure public acclaim, a scientific reputation, and financial security; its valuable descriptions of the peoples of the south seas won it some fame, and French and Dutch editions were published", but he was dogged by failure and never subsequently found employment which made use of his impressive knowledge of the Pacific, or relived his poverty. He died in Paris in 1847. Bookplate of Dame Mabel Balcombe Brookes, Australian philanthropist and author, to the front pastedown. Dame Mabel was a descendant of Betsy Balcombe who knew Napoleon at St. Helena, and she wrote her own account of the island, St. Helena Story, in 1960. Dillon's voyage took him several times to St. Helena.

        THE POETICAL WORKS OF COLERIDGE, SHELLEY, AND KEATS. Complete in one volume

      A. and W. Galignani. Paris. 1829. FIRST EDITION of this collection. 8vo. (9.7 x 6 inches). This volume constitutes the first collected edition of Keats and only the second collected works of Coleridge & Shelley (although only volume 1, issued in 5 parts, of the 1826 edition of Shelley's works was issued and the edition was not completed) and contains works published here for the first time from all three poets. ---- Engraved frontispiece, with portraits of the three poets, by J. T. Wedgewood, printed on india paper and mounted onto a blank leaf. 6 pp of publishers adverts, half-title, frontis - with original tissue guard intact, title page, publishers note leaf, xi, [1], 225, [1], xi, [1], 275, [1], vii, [1], 75 pp. Text printed in double column. Most pages affected by foxing to a greater or lesser degree. Neat previous owners name (Ynyr Burges -- John Ynyr Burges, M.A, was the high Sherrif of County Tyrone, Ireland, from 1929), place and date (Naples, 1832) on the front free endpaper. A tall and untrimmed copy in original publishers grey paper covered boards with printed paper label to the spine. Chipping and rubbing to the edges and spine. The label is complete and although the paper has darkened it is still perfectly readable. Each poets work is preceded by a short life of the author. The memoir of Keats is by Leigh Hunt. Although Keats' literary executor, Charles Armitage Brown disliked Hunt's portrayal of his friend, his own account of Keats' life was not ready in time for this edition and would not see publication for another 108 years in 1937. He did, however send some unpublished poems in his possession for inclusion in the volume. The memoir of Shelley was written by Mary Shelley, who also helped the publication of this edition by allowing the publisher access to his papers. Although this volume was published by the Galignanis in Paris, avoiding the British copyright and meaning no royalties would be due, they did have the co-operation of family members and literary friends of all three poets when assembling this impressive volume.

        Map Of The State Of Maine With The Province Of New Brunswick

      Portland, 1829. No Binding. Very Good. 50 ¾ x 40 ¼ inches. Steel engraving. Original wash color, refreshed; expertly conserved, re-mounted on new linen; a few cracks & marginal mends but fine for this kind.The very rare (three copies cited in OCLC), first edition of this excellent map of Maine by the state's first mapmaker. An exceptionally well-preserved example. Unlike many early American state maps that struggled to get completed, Greenleaf's received a warm commendation from the state legislature even before it was published, and the mapmaker was granted $1000 to aid him in finishing the map. Greenleaf later received $640 from the legislature for 40 copies of the map that were obtained for state use, a remarkable $16 per copy. Perhaps the large number of copies sold for official rather than private use helps account for the map's present rarity. The map was originally intended to accompany an atlas and survey of the state that Greenleaf published the same year, but very few complete sets of the three items are known to have survived. Greenleaf appears to have taken special care in the production of this map. Although published in Portland, Maine, Greenleaf employed as engravers for this work the estimable J. H. Young and F. Dankworth, both of whom produced major works for the firms of S. A. Mitchell and others. This precisely detailed map, which shows ten counties in different colors, provides state, county, town and township boundary lines. The state's many rivers, lakes, ponds, and even falls are shown as are roads and elevations. The map was re-published in 1844 by Greenleaf's son and namesake from the same plates but with emendations, and several times thereafter. Greenleaf published two earlier maps of the state in 1815 and 1820, but the present work was by far his finest.Ristow, W.

Some minor toning, but plates a bright and clean and very attractive. Some wear to binding. Sclater (1829-1913) was a highly prolific naturalist who produced over 1,400 publications. He was appointed Secretary of the Zoological Society in London in 1859, and was a world famous expert on tropical species. Osbert Slavin helped Sclater with the text in Exotic Ornithology, but the plates were done by Joseph Smit. While the work originally was to include new bird species from around the world, the project was scaled back to focus on birds in the southern portion of the United States. The book was issued in thirteen parts between1866-1869. Exotic Ornithology included 104 species belong to 51 genera. There is typically one bird per plate, and in a complete edition each page would be followed by a page of text.

        Napoli di Romaine otherwise Nafplion. "Napoli de Romainie autrefois Naùplie

      Greece: Paris J.F. d'Ostervald 1829-1834. Black & white lithograph of Nafplion and the approach across the plain of Argos from Stackelberg's " La Grèce. Vues Pitttoresques et Topographiques." First and only edition: double page from an unfolded edition; blank verso. The view from the plain of Argos also shows Tyrins , the rock of Palamidi , Acronafplia, and Bourdgi in the gulf of Argos. On the opposite shore Stackelberg indicates Lerna home of the Hydra killed by Hercules as the 2nd of his 12 labours. Bright & clean; some very light spotting within the image and to the blank margins. "La Grèce. Vues Pittoresques et Topographiques."was published in livraisons from 1829. It appeared in an ordinary format and also with the plates on india paper, mounted. Bound copies of the complete work often contain both formats made up from different livraisons. Complete copies with all the plates are rare; the Blackmer copy had 114 of the 126 plates [including the subtitle vignettes]. Navari states;" This is Stackelberg's chef d'oeuvre, and it is regarded by many as the most beautiful book of Greek views." In his biography of von Stackelberg, Gerhart Rodenwaldt called him the "discoverer of the [ancient] Greek landscape". Count Otto Magnus ,Baron von Stackelberg (25 July 1786 – 27 March 1837) Born in Reval (Tallinn ) Estonia. Archeologist, writer & painter. Stackelberg travelled to Italy in 1809 and there met and became friends with the archaeologist and art historian Carl Haller von Hallerstein, & the Danish archaeologists and philologists Peter Oluf Brondsted and Georg Koes, whom persuaded Stackelberg to accompany them on their trip to Greece. They intended to produce an archaeological publication upon their return, for which Stackelberg would produce landscapes. The trip to Greece was long and adventurous, setting out from Naples in July 1810 and not arriving in the Piraeus until September. At Athens, they were joined by the British architects and archaeologists John Foster and Charles Robert Cockerell. The group carried out excavations at several Greek sites – in 1811 at the Temple of Aphaia at Aegina, they removed the fallen fragmentary pediment sculptures and on von Hallerstein's recommendation shipped them abroad and sold them the following year to Crown Prince Ludwig of Bavaria; and in 1812 they exposed parts of the temple of Apollo at Bassae (the frieze they found on it is now in the British Museum) and Aeacus's temple of Zeus Panhellenios (Panhellenic Zeus),again at Aegina. In autumn 1814, Stackelberg returned from Greece to his family in the Baltic States. He travelled to Italy again in 1816, researching antiquity and the Middle Ages as an art historian and becoming co-founder of the "Instituto Archeologico Germanico" in Rome. Together with Eduard Gerhard, August Kestner and Theodor Panofka, he also established in 1824 the "Hyperboreans" ("Römischen Hyperboraeer") there, a group of northern European scholars who studied classical ruins. Both were the precursors and embryonic stages of the later German Archaeological Institute. In 1826 Stackelberg's archaeological work was published as Der Apollotempel zu Bassae in Arcadien und die daselbst ausgegrabenen Bildwerke (The Temple of Apollo at Bassae in Arcadia, and the Wall-paintings excavated there), for which he also provided the drawings. Also during this time in Rome in the middle of his life, Stackelberg undertook further trips to Greece, to Turkey and within Italy. In Etruria in 1827 he discovered the Etruscan temple and hypogaeum at Corneto (now Tarquinia) Navari/ Blackmer: 1593; Sotheby's/Blackmer 1031 Greece Peloponnesus Nafplion Plain of Argos Lerna

Inocêncio IV, 264: ?José Barbosa Canaes de Figueiredo Castello-Branco, Bibliotecário mór da Biblioteca Nacional de Lisboa, nomeado em 1851: Sócio da Academia Real das Ciências de Lisboa, e da Academia Real de Historia de Madrid. Nasceu na vila de Soure, hoje pertencente ao distrito de Coimbra, pelos anos de 1804. Frequentava em 1825 o terceiro ano do curso de Teologia na Universidade de Coimbra, mas parece que não chegou a formar-se nesta Faculdade. Morreu em Lisboa, vítima da febre-amarela em 1857. Era tido por mui versado em coisas de Genealogia, e passava por grande indagador das nossas antiguidades. Se com razão ou sem ela, poderão julga-lo os que folhearem os escritos que nos deixou, na maior parte incompletos, porque rara foi a obra por ele começada, que chegasse a terminar.

Na introdução deste segundo tomo declara o autor, que as consideráveis inexactidões que se notavam no primeiro, o determinaram a suprimir aquele volume, que tencionava reimprimir, corrigido e acrescentado com os costados de famílias ainda não publicados, etc. etc. Não consta porém que isto passasse de tenção. A obra completa devia (diz ele) constar de quatro tomos. Dos publicados o 1.º contém as famílias titulares do reino; a primeira parte do 2.º trata das famílias nobres da província do Minho, etc. Na dedicatória impressa á frente do tomo I declara ele contar vinte e cinco anos ao tempo em que começava esta publicação. Creio que alguns exemplares destes dois tomos, que não são hoje muito vulgares, têm sido vendidos por preços de 1:200 a 1:600 réis? Location/localizacao: 3-A2-C-18

        La Cuisinière du Haut-Rhin

      Mulhausen, Jean Risler et comp. et Strasbourg, Ch.-Fr. Heitz 1829 - Petit in-8°, cartonnage bleu, titre manuscrit au dos, date en pied, 295 pp EDITION ORIGINALE RARISSIME de la traduction française de ce recueil de recettes paru en allemand en 1811 (cf. n° 84), « à l'usage des ménagères et des jeunes personnes qui désirent acquérir les connaissances indispensables à une Maîtresse de maison, dans l'art de la cuisine, de la pâtisserie et des confitures, suivi d'une instruction pour apprêter une nourriture saine aux malades ». L'édition française ne reprend pas fidèlement l'édition originale allemande : elle comporte 25 recettes de plus et 3 recettes de moins. Il y a eu 17 éditions allemandes et 3 éditions françaises, plus un reprint en 1981. La traduction est néanmoins scrupuleuse au point que certains termes alsaciens courants n'apparaissent pas : le célèbre Kougelhof figure sous le nom de « turban ».Ouvrage considéré comme le tout premier livre de cuisine régionale et, qui plus est, destiné par une femme à des femmes Vicaire 239; « premier livre de cuisine qui présente une spécificité régionale ; (.) l'un des premiers - si ce n'est le premier - livres de cuisine écrits par une femme pour les femmes », Julia Csergo, dans Papilles n° 10-11 de mars 1996 ; « le catéchisme de la cuisine protestante d'Alsace », Charles Gérard dans L'Ancienne Alsace à table Pâles rousseurs éparses

        A CATALOGUE OF THE RARE OR REMARKABLE PHAENOGAMOUS PLANTS, COLLECTED IN SOUTH KENT : WITH DESCRIPTIVE NOTICES AND OBSERVATIONS.

      Longman, Orme, Brown, Green, Paternoster Row, London: 1829 - First Edition. 8vo. viii + 78 pp. illustrated with 5 fine hand-coloured plates including Early Spider Orchids and Bee Orchids. Original green half-morocco. Spine in compartments tooled in gilt with contrasting title label. Rebacked, retaining the original spine. Corners a little rubbed, otherwise a very good copy. This copy is inscribed to 'Ward Hunt Painter, with the author's kind regard, January 1877' and a botanical note in his hand on page 18. G. E. Smith lived in Sandgate and compiled this detailed list of local plants in his leisure with the help of many local people, landowners and clergy, most of whom appear in the list of subscribers, which accounts for exactly 350 copies, so only this number and perhaps a few more were printed. The list is fascinating for the locations given and the finders' names and, in some cases, the author's digressions on the views from the spot where a rarity was found etc. The quality of the hand-coloured plates is very high and the book contains first records for thirty-six plants of the Kent Flora (See Hanbury and Marshall). Very rare. KENT BOTANY KENT BOTANY 19TH CENTURY KENT Smith p.91; Hanbury and Marshall p. lxx.
