        The Fishes of Cochin, illustrating Day's 'Fishes of Malabar' to which are appended some Fishes of Trichinopoly, Madura, &c Autographs of some of the Indian Ichthyologist, 1865.

      . Manuscript album containing, apart from the handwritten title, 102 original watercolours and 30 original pen drawings, mounted on 111 leaves (308 x 240mm), with some engravings, a leaf of photographs, and some original correspondence; in a contemporary binding of half red calf, spine skilfully repaired, lettered: "Illustrations of Indian Fishes, Day". A unique and splendid collection of watercolours and drawings of Indian fishes, some by the great ichthyologist Francis Day himself and others commissioned from a group of Indian artists, assembled as an album for his own use by Day. The collection comprises 30 original pen drawings, evidently the work of Francis Day, as well as a wonderful suite of 102 original watercolours by Indian artists. These watercolours and drawings are accompanied by a number of engravings extracted from Day's published work as well as a leaf of photographs and, at the end, a series of letters from other ichthyologists. On the flyleaf of the album is a superb small watercolour of an Indian river landscape with bridge. Francis Day (1829-1889), the most important ichthyologist ever to have written on Indian fishes, published several major works on the ichthyology of India. His first work was 'The Fishes of Malabar' published in 1865; it was followed in 1878 by 'The Fishes of India', while a further two volumes on fishes appeared in the 'Fauna of British India' in 1889. While two watercolours in the first section of the manuscript can be identified as the likely originals for plates 3 and 8 in Day's 'Fishes of Malabar', the remainder appear to have remained entirely unpublished. The album is a first portrayal of the fish fauna of the Malabar Coast. The Malabar Coast refers to India's southwest coast and is flanked by the Arabian Sea at the west. Many of the fishes of the Malabar Coast also inhabit the Arabian Sea and are hence found on the coastal waters of the Arabian Peninsula. "In 1852 Day joined the Madras medical service as surgeon, and began a career in the southern region of the Indian sub-continent. The years Day spent at Cochin on the Malabar Coast gave a unique opportunity for the study of its fish to which he added an interest in the problems of fisheries and food supply. In 1864 Day returned home on leave with sufficient material for a paper on the 'Fishes of Cochin' for the Zoological Society and for a larger work that came to be published under the title of 'The Fishes of Malabar'" (1865) (Gunther, A.E. A Century of Zoology at the British Museum , p. 409). Day returned to India in 1866 and remained there until 1874. "Even today, Dr. Francis Day is considered to be the single most influential figure in the ichthyology of southern Asia. In 24 years of study he named 343 species of marine and freshwater fishes, based primarily on nearly 10,000 specimens from an area that today extends from Afghanistan to Burma " (Australian Museum's website). The subject of the first part of this remarkable album is the 'Fishes of Malabar': this part contains 36 original watercolours and 25 pen drawings, on 41 leaves, mostly mounted 2 to a page. The second part of the album has its own title-page: "Drawings of some of the Fishes of Trichinopoly, Madura &c made by Native Artists under the superintendence of Assistant Surgeon Morgan M.D. Madras Medical service in 1863 ". The 66 watercolours in this part, all mounted one to a page, are clearly the work of Indian artists, and some have Sanskrit inscriptions. Most illustrations are also captioned with the Latin scientific names. This part also contains 5 pen drawings and a page of old photographs as well as a number of letters to Day from contemporary scientists such as D. Horsfield, Emmerson Tennent, J.E. Gray, J. Couch, and P. Bleeker, as well as one from the London bookseller Bernard Quaritch. The pen drawings in both sections are similar in style and can be identified as the work of Francis Day himself. One is inscribed 'F. Day del ad nat et sculp. Madras 1864'. In the original publication of the 'Fishes of Malabar' all 20 plates were both drawn and engraved by Day, who must have been a very able draftsman. In the preface to that book he explained that " having through the kindness of Colonel Sir Henry James, R.E. been shown the mode of engraving on copper pursued at the Ordnance Office, I have been induced to personally delineate most of the new species described in this work ". He also points out that very little is known about the ichthyology of the region, ".. so little has since been done in inquiring into its natural riches, that the national Collection in London appears to have obtained one solitary ichthyological species from the whole of that territory in the course of seventy years ". As we know, Day set out to correct that neglect, and this splendid collection is evidence of his working methods: it is an important and remarkably attractive album, in excellent condition. Provenance: Francis Day (with his label "Francis Day, Esq. Cumberland House, St. Thomas's Street, Ryde, Island of Wight" on front pastedown, and his signature on flyleaf)..

All edges gilt.. First edition (the second of the same year was in two volumes, octavo). "Burckhardt travelled disguised as an Arab, making his notes clandestinely. This work deals primarily with his travels to Mecca and Djidda, Medina and Yembo. The Lausanne-born Burckhardt (1784-1817) was a remarkable character, the first Westerner to visit the Holy Cities. In the guise of a pilgrim "he proceeded to perform the rites of pilgrimage at Mekka, go round the Kaaba, sacrifice, &c., and in every respect acquitted himself as a good Muslim. No Christian or European had ever accomplished this feat before; and the penalty of discovery would probably have been death. [...] Burckhardt possessed the highest qualifications of a traveller. Daring and yet prudent, a close and accurate observer, with an intimate knowledge of the people among whom he travelled, their manners and their language, he was able to accomplish feats of exploration which to others would have been impossible" (Stanley Lane-Poole, in: DNB VII, 293f.). - Old stamp of the "Belcher Library" (Gaysville, Vermont) on first blank, some toning and brownstaining. - Rare. - Macro, Bibl. of the Arabian Peninsula 627.

Es findet sich in Bibliotheken allerdings kein Titel-Belegexemplar für einen wie im vorliegenden Fall bis 1813 reichenden Atlas. Möglicherweise handelt es sich um eine Unikat-ähnliche Sammlung von (Atlas-) Blättern zu den Werken Gouvion St.-Cyrs (jedoch ohne den Katalonienfeldzug von 1808/1809). Deren 15 (+1 aus Vol. 3) Karten reichen in einer ersten Partie, die den Themenbereich der Textbände abdeckt, von einer Übersichtskarte 'du pays entre le Rhin, la Moselle et la Sarre [..] 1792[-1795]' und der 'Carte du pays situe entre Nothweiler et Bondenthal [.. Sept./Oct.] 1793' bis zu den Plänen von Kehl und Huningue (Hüningen) 1796/1797 sowie einer Übersichtskarte von Schwaben und teilw. Bayern 'Carte de la Souabe et d'une partie de la Baviere [..] 1796'. Daran anschliessend finden sich in der zweiten Partie 23 Pläne und Karten für die Revolutions- und napoleonischen Feldzüge der Jahre 1799-1813 (davon je 5 zu den italienischen Feldzügen mit Plänen von Novi und Bosco, resp. zum Russlandfeldzug von 1812 mit Übersichtskarten und Plänen von Polotsk (od. Polazk, Polozk, Polotzk) : von einem 'Plan du Champ de Bataille de Liptingen, le 24 et 15 Mars 1799' bis zur 'Carte des Environs de Dresde, Pour servir a l'intelligence des operations d'une partie de la Grande Armee pendant la Campagne de Saxe en 1813' und einem 'Plan de Dresde et de ses Environs, Pour servir a l'intelligence des mouvemens du 14.e Corps commande par le Marechal Gouvion St. Cyr, les 26, 27 Aout et 17 Octobre 1813'. Die fein gestochenen Karten auf relativ schwerem Kupferdruckpapier sind durchwegs in recht kräftigen Abzügen gedruckt. - Die sep. Tabellen sind Etatblätter zu den verschiedenen Einheiten und damit bedeutende spezifische militärgeschichtliche Quellen zur Rhein-Armee. -- Bedeutendes dokumentarisches Werk zum monographischen kriegs- und militärhistorischen Profil dieser besonderen französischen Heeresabteilung und ihres Einsatzes in den Gebieten hauptsächlich im deutschen Raum östlich der französischen Grenze. - Der Text behandelt dem Titel entsprechend konsequent nur die Aktionen und Operationen der französischen Rhein- resp. Rhein-Mosel-Armee im Rahmen des Ersten Koalitionskrieges (1792-1797). Der Feldzug in Oberitalien unter dem Kommando von Napoleon (von der Eroberung der Lombardei bis zum Frieden von Campo Formio im Oktober 1797) erscheint nur insofern, als aus dieser Einheit Truppen nach Italien detachiert wurden. Der Schwerpunkt liegt also auf den Ereignissen im (süd-) deutschen Raum. -- Mit der französischen Kriegserklärung an Österreich im April 1792 begannen die Koalitionskriege zwischen Frankreich und den alliierten Truppen der gegnerischen europäischen Staaten : "In wechselnden Verbindungen kämpfen die europäischen Mächte gegen die Verbreitung revolutionärer Ideen und die Expansion der französischen Republik, die seit 1799 von Napoleon geführt wird. Die Kriege verändern das politische Gleichgewicht zugunsten einer napoleonischen Vorherrschaft auf dem Kontinent; sie wecken zugleich den nationalen Widerstand der europäischen Völker und die Bereitschaft zu Reformen, die den Grundstein zu modernen Staatswesen legen. Zentren des Widerstandes sind Österreich [..] und Grossbritannien [..], das unbezwungen bleibt, seine See- und Kolonialherrschaft ausbaut und trotz eines Wirtschaftskrieges [..] zur stärksten Handels- und Industrienation der Welt aufsteigt." (Kinder/Hilgemann, Atlas zur Weltgeschichte, 2, 2. Aufl. 1982, p. 25). - "Armee de Rhin et Moselle: Heritiere de l'armee du Rhin de 1792 qui, apres avoir occupe puis evacue Mayence, dut en assurer le blocus, dans des conditions materielles si difficiles et au prix de telles pertes qu'il devint necessaire de la renforcer par l'armee de Moselle. Ainsi nait en l'an III (1795) l'armee de Rhin et Moselle qui, d'abord commandee par Pichegru, tient le Rhin face a Wurmser, de Huningue a Bingen. Mais c'est sous le commandement de Moreau, bien seconde par Desaix et Gouvion-Saint-Cyr, que l'armee va s'illustrer au cours des campagnes de l'an IV et de l'an V (1796-1797). Dans les plans de Carnot pour la campagne de 1796, les operations d'Allemagne menees par les armees de Sambre et Meuse et de Rhin et Moselle devaient etre coordonnees avec celles de l'armee d'Italie. [..] En 1796, apres avoir bouscule l'archiduc Charles a Ettlingen, Moreau s'enfonce en Baviere vers Augsbourg. Mais l'archiduc se derobe pour se jeter sur l'armee de Sambre et Meuse qu'il contraint a la retraite sur le Rhin. Ainsi isole, sous la menace d'une action autrichienne sur ses communications, Moreau entreprend une retraite perilleuse qu'il mene avec maitrise, en particulier a travers les defiles de la Foret-Noire, la vallee de Neustadt que Villars decrivait comme le Val-d'Enfer. Il ramene son armee sur la rive gauche du Rhin franchi a Neuf-Brisach et a Huningue. En 1797, Bonaparte, a la tete de l'armee d'Italie, s'etait reserve l'effort principal: marcher sur Vienne et s'emparer de la capitale. Avec l'armee de Sambre et Meuse, l'armee de Rhin et Moselle devait, en franchissant le Rhin, retenir les armees autrichiennes d'Allemagne sur la rive droite. A peine le Rhin franchi, les operations s'arreterent. En avril 1797, Bonaparte avait fait la decision. Moreau, coupable de ne pas avoir denonce en son temps les compromissions de Pichegru avec les emigres, est rappele. Hoche regroupe Sambre et Meuse et Rhin et Danube en une seule armee; Hoche mort, son successeur, Augereau, la denommera armee d'Allemagne." (J. Delmas, Armee de Rhin & Moselle, dans: Encyclopadia Universalis, online: http://www.universalis.fr/encyclopedie/armee-de-rhin-et-moselle/ ). - Marquis Laurent de Gouvion-Saint-Cyr (Toul 1764-1830 Hyeres), marechal de France. Volontaire aux chasseurs republicains en 1792, il se distingua dans les guerres de la Revolution. Le Premier consul le nomma ambassadeur a Madrid (1801). Colonel general des cuirassiers en 1804, il fit la campagne de Prusse 1806-1807, obtint, peu de temps apres, le commandement de l'armee de Catalogne et prit Rosas (1808).

        Il costume antico e moderno o storia del governo, della milizia, della religione, delle arti, scienze ed usanze di tutti i popoli antichi e moderni provata coi monumenti dell' antichita e rappresentata cogli analoghi disegni.

      Milan, tipografia dell'editore, 1829-1834.. Folio (380 x 265 mm). 37 vols. incl. supplements and index. With 7 engr. folding maps, 5 engr. maps, 1619 coloured aquatints (2 double-page-sized), 2 engr. portraits, 2 engr. plates of musical notes, and 4 tables. Late 19th century half calf with giltstamped spine title. Untrimmed.. Without question the largest pictorial encyclopedia of the world published during the 19th century, and one of the rarest works to be found complete. Printed in a press run of no more than 300 copies, this set is numbered "12" and was inscribed to a friend of the author ("del socio Signor G. Ferrario"); as such, it was printed on superior paper and coloured particularly carefully (according to Brunet, most of the 300 copies produced were issued entirely uncoloured). The purpose of this 37-volume set in large folio format was to provide a complete account of all known parts of the world not only by describing in detail the various peoples' costumes, governments, religion, habits, military, arts and science, but also by showing them in splendid illustrations, all of which are here coloured by hand individually. The engravings include not only many costumes, but also buildings, objects of religious and of everyday use, monuments, historical scenes and much more. The plates are printed on wove paper and bear the publisher's drystamp. In spite of the enormous number of plates, the colouring is meticulous throughout. - Initially planned for no more than 13 volumes (1816-1827) and also published in French, this present Italian edition is the only one that was issued complete with all supplements and the plates in their impressive folio format. - Of the utmost rarity: we could not trace a single complete copy on the market since 1950. Auction records list only the abridged 8vo reprint or single volumes of the present folio edition (Sotheby's, May 28, 2002, lot 426: 8,720 for vol. I, pt. 3 only). Interior shows occasional slight foxing to blank margins. Altogether an excellent, complete set of the luxury edition: uniformly bound, untrimmed and wide-margined. - Colas 1051. Hiler 311.

Octavo. Original drab boards, printed label to the spine. Half-title bound in, errata slip follows the Introduction. A little rubbed and soiled, spine chipped head and tail, joints splitting but sound, light foxing to the prelims, a very good copy in unrestored contemporary condition.

Significant account of the Mutiny at the Nore, which was essentially a strike protesting against low wages and poor conditions, but which was perceived to be taking on wider political dimensions under the leadership of Richard Parker. Admiral Cunningham initially went to sea in the merchant service, but in 1775 transferred to the frigate, Aeolus, and was with her in the West Indies the following year where he transferred to the Bristol under Sir Peter Parker. In 1779, continuing on the West India station, he was for a short time first lieutenant for Capt. Horatio Nelson in the Hinchinbrooke, and around 1782 was put in command of the brig Admiral Barrington, returning to Britain when she was paid off in 1783. Service in the East Indies under William Cornwallis followed in 1788, and in 1790 Cornwallis put Cunningham in command of the sloop Oriel. "On the declaration of war with France in February 1793 Cunningham, then in command of the brig Speedy, went out to the Mediterranean with dispatches; he remained attached to the Mediterranean Fleet and on 12 October, having assisted in the capture of the frigates Modeste and Impérieuse, was made post into the latter, renamed the Unité. He exchanged into the Lowestoft in April 1794 and in the summer assisted at the siege of Calvi, a service for which he, together with the other frigate captains, was specially mentioned in Lord Hood's dispatch, which he carried home overland …" (ODNB) Appointed to the Clyde in 1796 he was refitting in the Nore when the Mutiny broke out. Cunningham was a popular captain and was "not absolutely dispossessed of the command, and succeeded, after seventeen days, in bringing his men back to their duty. During the night of 29 May the Clyde slipped her cables, and before morning was safe in Sheerness harbour. Her defection was the signal to many other ships to do likewise, and within a week the fleet had returned to its allegiance". Parker and twenty-nine of the leaders of the unrest were hanged. The Clyde served commendably in the years that followed and in 1803 Cunningham was nominated Commissioner of the Victualling Board, a shore appointments suitably rewarding a relatively elderly captain - he was then forty-eight - who could not expect a flag appointment. He was subsequently appointed Commissioner of the Dockyards at Deptford and Woolwich in 1806, a post he held until 1823, when he became Superintendent of the Dockyard at Chatham; he retired in 1829. "After a late entry into the service, and lacking any powerful interest, Cunningham had secured his promotion through professional skill, zeal, and initiative. The connection with Nelson and William Cornwallis is striking, as was his conduct during the Nore mutiny. Ashore he was efficient and a credit to his profession; a fine officer in all respects." The recipient is most likely Capt. James Andrew Worth who saw significant action during the French wars, on board the Helena sloop on the Ireland station, and commanding the Bulwark and the Venerable, both 74s, on the North Sea, Channel, and West India Stations. Later ownership inscription of Admiral Baldwin Wake Walker to the front pastedown, Walker was Surveyor, later comptroller, of the Navy 1848-61; subsequently Commander-in-Chief Cape of Good Hope and West Africa Station 1861-4; and Commander-in-Chief, The Nore, 1866-9. An excellently provenanced copy of this uncommon and important first-hand account of the Mutiny of 1797.

        Memoires de M. de Bourrienne, ministre d'etat sur Napoleon, 10 vols

      Chez Ladvocat, Paris 1829 - 10 gorgeous volumes complete, 6 dated 1829, 2 frp, volume one contains the eight page announcement of the publication of the first six volumes. Calf leather spines, six raised compartments, black leather spine titles, occasional rubbing to spine ends else VG, one a bit rubbed, some foxing to all, browned paper in gaps between sentences, French text, 3rd edn, outstanding work of Bonaparte's younger days in particular, many anecdotes to be used with verifiable caution. Major work for the Napoleonic epoch. A very attractive set for some historian's bookshelf. The author was educated at the military school of Brienne in Champagne along with Napoleon Bonaparte; and although the solitary habits of the latter made intimacy difficult, the two youths seem to have been on friendly terms. However, the stories of their very close friendship, as told in Bourrienne's memoirs, are open to suspicion. Leaving Brienne in 1787, and conceiving a distaste for the army, Bourrienne proceeded to Vienna. He was pursuing legal and diplomatic studies there, and afterwards at Leipzig, when the French Revolution broke out and went through its first phases. Not until the spring of 1792 did Bourrienne return to France; at Paris he renewed his acquaintance with Bonaparte. By 1795 Bonaparte was then second in command of the Army of the Interior and soon received the command of the Army of Italy. Bourrienne did not proceed with him into Italy, but was called there by the victorious general at the time of the long negotiations with Austria (May-October 1797), when his knowledge of law and diplomacy was useful in drafting the terms of the Treaty of Campo Formio (October 7). The following year he accompanied Bonaparte to Egypt as his private secretary, and left a vivid, if not very trustworthy, account of the expedition in his memoirs. He also accompanied him on the adventurous return voyage to Fréjus (September-October 1799), and was of some help in the affairs that led up to the coup d'état of Brumaire (November) 1799. He remained by the side of the First Consul in his former capacity, but in the autumn of 1802 incurred Bonaparte's displeasure, ostensibly because of questionable financial dealings. In the early spring of 1807, when directed by Napoleon to order a large number of military cloaks for the army, then in East Prussia, he found that the only means of procuring them expeditiously was to order them from England. After gaining a large fortune while at Hamburg, he was recalled to France in disgrace at the close of 1810. In 1814 he embraced the royal cause, and during the Hundred Days (1815) accompanied Louis XVIII to Ghent. The rest is of little concern to us with regard to this glimpse of Napoleon.

Significant account of the Mutiny at the Nore, which was essentially a strike protesting against low wages and poor conditions, but which was perceived to be taking on wider political dimensions under the leadership of Richard Parker. Admiral Cunningham initially went to sea in the merchant service, but in 1775 transferred to the frigate, Aeolus, and was with her in the West Indies the following year where he transferred to the Bristol under Sir Peter Parker.

        Portraits of the Spruggins Family,

      arranged by Richard Sucklethumkin Spruggins, Esq. Lithographed frontis. & 45 lithographed plates (some occasionally lightly foxed). [39] leaves. Large 4to, orig. green half-sheep & marbled boards (minor scuffing), spine richly gilt, red leather lettering piece on spine. [London?: Privately Printed], 1829. First edition of this famous spoof. Sneyd's Portraits of the Spruggins Family is a parody of contemporary family histories and similar works of 19th-century antiquaries, genealogists, and art historians. The work was for some time attributed to Frances Parker, Countess of Morley. The text and illustrations were probably entirely the work of Sneyd, while Morley appears to have been responsible for drawing the lithographs from Sneyd's sketches. Sneyd (1809-88), was an Oxford educated clergyman and a notable collector of medieval manuscripts; he was an intimate friend of Robert Curzon. He was ordained in 1834, and thereafter lived at Denton House, near Oxford, until 1870, when he inherited Keele Hall, in Staffordshire. Nice copy, with a presentation inscription on a free front-endpaper: "Sir Charles Bagot from The Author -- July 1830." Bagot (1781-1843), was a diplomat and governor-in-chief of British North America. Bookplate of Lord Farnham. ❧ Martin, Privately Printed Books, p. 374-(calling for 44 plates). .

        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.
