        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.

        Exotic Ornithology?

      Folio, modern boards, 98 (of 100) hand colored lithographed plates. Lacking the preliminaries and text, this volume is plates only. Missing plates 41 & 42. 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

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.

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.

        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.

        A Treatise on Naval Gunnery. Published with the Approbation and Permission of the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty. SPLENDID COPY IN CONTEMPORARY BINDING

      John Murray 1829 - 8vo., Second Edition, with several tables in the text, 5 folding engraved diagrams and 4 folding tables; contemporary half calf, gilt back, marbled boards, sprinkled edges, a remarkably crisp, fresh, clean copy. With an engraved armorial bookplate. A handsome and highly desirable copy of a classic work in contemporary binding. Son of Rear-Admiral Sir Charles Douglas, Sir Howard Douglas (1776-1861) enjoyed a distinguished military career and developed a well-earned reputation for enquiry and innovation. By 1811 he had perfected and patented 'Douglas's reflecting circle'; in 1816 he published an important study of military bridges and in 1819 a treatise on Carnot's system of fortification. He then turned his attention to naval matters and produced the first edition of his famous volume on naval gunnery in 1820. It is a comprehensive study covering theoretical, practical and tactical aspects and its impact was significant. Its success, both at home and in translation, led eventually to the establsihment of 'H.M.S. Excellent' as a gunnery training school. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Map of the County of Sussex from an Actual Survey

      London, 1829. Copper engraving, 63 x 73 cms, original hand-colour with black and white vignette of Chichester Cathedral, blank verso. The Greenwood brothers were land-surveyors from Yorkshire who compiled one of the last independent large-scale county atlases, in the face of growing competition from the Ordnance Survey. The maps are both decorative and detailed but, as Worms reveals in &#145;British Map Engravers&#146; the project was not a financial success: in 1834 Christopher was imprisoned for debt and the engraved plates soon passed to other hands.

        The Plain of Kifissós, "Plain de Céphisse

      Greece: Paris J.F. d&#39;Ostervald 1829-1834. Black & white lithograph of Athens from the Plain of Kifissós,, from Stackelberg&#39;s " La Grèce. Vues Pitttoresques et Topographiques." First and only edition: double page from an unfolded edition; blank verso. The view shows the plain of the river Kifissós, with the Acropolis of Athens in the mid ground and extending to the sea and the port of Pireus, Clean & bright; tears to right margin repaired [longest 40mm top right corner] none of the tears enters the image. "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&#39;s chef d&#39;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 â&#128;&#147; 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 â&#128;&#147; in 1811 at the Temple of Aphaia at Aegina, they removed the fallen fragmentary pediment sculptures and on von Hallerstein&#39;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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;s/Blackmer 1031 Greece Continental Greece Ahtens Attika Kifissós,
