        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,

        Map of the County of Wayne

      New York 1829 - This rare fold-out pocket map depicts Wayne County in northwest New York on Lake Ontario, divided into 15 towns outlined in vivid color. The map denotes major routes, waterways, and topographical details. Icons label villages, flouring mills, factories, forges, saw mills, and churches. The map was published in 1829 during the Second Great Awakening, which brought attention to this region of the state as a major site of religious revival. In particular, the village and town of Palmyra, which appear on the map, served as an important site of discovery for Joseph Smith, later the founder of the Mormon Church. The map is in excellent condition with no tears of any kind. Some scattered staining, especially along original folds. It is attached to its original leather cover, and the watermark of the paper is visible. David H. Burr (1803-1875) served as Topographer to the United States Post Office and Geographer to the House of Representatives and was widely known for his accuracy and attention to detail. Burr was one of the first cartographers to map each of the United States individually. Issued separately rather than included in his seminal "Universal Atlas," this pocket map is a scarce version of Burr's celebrated work. Map. Copper plate engraving with original hand outline color. Map attached to red leather binding as issued, title stamped in gold. Image measures 12 1/2 x 15".

Volume I is second issue, carrying the imprint of Carey & Lea vice Carey Lea & Carey, though still with the 1829 date [the transition occuring in November 1829]. 13 volumes, complete. T. G. Bradford, assisted editing of v. 5 - 13. Volumes 2 -12 were published by Carey and Lea; v. 13 by Carey, Lea & Blanchard.. Period tan half-calf with marbled boards & eps.. Square & tight, with the boards show a bit of rubbing. A few volumes. with a bit of chipping to spine crown. Pos [dated 1880], as well as. earlier prior owner presentation inscription to a Mrs Eliot. Vol I. with an unobtrusive qtr-circle stain in upper gutter, noticable. primarily in only the first gathering. Vols VI, IX & XII with excised. name from top of preliminary blank. Overall VG - VG+.. Lieber, an educator & political activist, was born & educated in Germany, emigrating to Boston in 1827. Not long after his arrival in the US, Lieber approached the firm of Carey Lea & Carey proposing a number of possible literary projects; Henry Carey agreed to sponsor this encyclopedia. To act as overall editor, Lieber was paid $20,000 [from which all assistants were to be paid] though he retained complete literary control. The work was monumental in scope, and required a firm of Carey & Lea&#39;s stature to undertake... the 13 volumes contain over 20,000 separate articles, with roughly 7,000,000 words filling but 8,000 pages- Kaser terms this effort as "one of the largest, most profitable, and most important ventures" ever undertaken by the firm. It continued to have brisk sales up until the outbreak of the Civil War. [Kaser. CAREY & LEA, p. 47, 133 - 138]. Lieber modeled the work on Brockhaus&#39; CONVERSATIONS LEXIKON, with appropriate portions adapted to its American audience; it found "immediate acceptance" when publication began in September 1829. Despite costing $32.50 per set, it was "issued at a time when an American Encyclopedia was in active demand as a means of self improvement by thousands of knowledge-hungry adults... " No doubt one reason for this work selling over 100,000 sets was Lieber&#39;s ability to convince many distinguished Americans to contribute appropriate sections to his enterprise; for example, Joseph Story, noted federal judge and a founder of Harvard Law School, is known to have contributed 120+ pages to the Encyclopaedia for the divers legal topics contained therein [says Lieber in the Preface, "Numerous entire articles of American and English law have been introduced..."]. [cf. Madison. BOOK PUBLISHIHING IN AMERICA, p. 12]. A rarely seen set of an important landmark in US publishing, first printings throughout, in a desirable period binding.
