        The Plain of Argos and Mycenae. "Plaine d'Argos et de Mycène

      Greece: Paris J.F. d'Ostervald 1829-1834. Black & white lithograph of the Lion gate of Mycenae and the plain of Argos from Stackelberg's " La Grèce. Vues Pitttoresques et Topographiques." First and only edition: double page folded; blank verso. The view shows the famous entry to the acropolis of Mycenae, the Lion Gate, and looks over the Plain of Argos to the castle of Larissa, Argos with Nafplion in the distance . The gate is unexcavated; in the foreground are various figures including the artist making a sketch of the gate; on the approach to the gate another group of figures, stand before the "trésor souterraine" as indicated by Stackelberg. The view is important in showing the archeological features before excavation which was first carried out by the Greek archaeologist Kyriakos Pittakis in 1841. He found and restored the Lion Gate. In 1876, Heinrich Schliemann started a complete excavation at the site. Bright & clean; some 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 Mycenae

        AMERICAN ORNITHOLOGY; OR THE NATURAL HISTORY OF THE BIRDS OF THE UNITED STATES. ILLUSTRATED WITH PLATES ENGRAVED AND COLOURED FROM ORIGINAL DRAWINGS TAKEN FROM NATURE.

      New York & Philadelphia: Collins & Co. and Harrison Hall, 1828-1829. - Three quarto text volumes plus folio atlas volume. Text: cxcix,[1],230,[1]; 456 [without a leaf number vii-viii, as usual]; vi,396pp., 4pp. subscribers' list at rear of vol. III. Atlas: Seventy-six handcolored engraved plates, some heightened with gum arabic, by A. Lawson (52), J.G. Warnicke (21), G. Murray (2), and B. Tanner (1), all after Wilson. Expertly bound to style in half red straight-grained morocco and period near-uniform marbled boards, spines gilt. Very good. The second full edition of Wilson's work, with plates in their most desirable form. This is the most important work on American ornithology before Audubon. "Science would lose little if every scrap of pre-Wilsonian writing about United States birds could be annihilated" - Coues. The first edition of Wilson's life-work was published in nine volumes between 1808 and 1814. The present edition was prepared by Wilson's friend and colleague, George Ord, who improved the work textually by re-arranging the work in a systematic order by species and by contributing an important "Sketch of the Author's Life" (pp.vii-cxcix in the first text volume) as well as numerous additional textual notes. He also notes in his preface to the first text volume that he arranged for the plates to be "carefully examined and retouched" by Alexander Lawson (the original engraver of most of the plates). Reading between the lines of Ord's preface, it is clear that he believed the plates in the present edition to be better than the first, and this is the current general view: it is noted in FINE BIRD BOOKS that "the plates [are] coloured better," and Wood writes: "The hand- colored drawings in the atlas are from the original copper plates, colored anew by pigments which seem to have been better quality than those used by Wilson. In the copy under notice, the colors are very fresh: those of the original are faded and in some cases quite disintegrated." In addition to the coloring, better quality paper was used in this edition, thus avoiding the foxing which almost inevitably mars the first. Thus, this edition is more desirable than the first.

        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".

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'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' 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'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.

        HISTORICAL SKETCH OF THE LATE CATHOLIC ASSOCIATION OF IRELAND

      London: Henry Colburn, 1829.. Two volumes. viii,435;vi,121,[1],cccxlvii,[5]pp. Octavo. Recent half calf and marbled boards. Occasional old stamps of a defunct mercantile library, some isolated spotting in upper margin of a few signatures in the second volume, otherwise a very good, crisp set. First edition of this important work by one intimately involved in the events it chronicles. The extensive appendices in the second volume contain a wealth of correspondence and transcripts of primary documents and records. "In 1825 the agitation for catholic emancipation revived in Ireland, and Wyse, returning with his family to Waterford, instantly took a leading part in politics. At the first great provincial meeting in Limerick, consisting of liberal protestants as well as catholics, he was unanimously elected chairman...Thenceforward in the struggle for emancipation Wyse ranked near O'Connell and Sheil. Lord O'Hagan states that of all the politicians of the day, Wyse was the most accomplished and highly cultured. When the Catholic Association, which Wyse's great-grandfather and the O'Conor Don first founded in 1760, decided on issuing an address to the people of England, he was chosen to compose it. He also originated a system of liberal clubs, but opposed exclusive dealing. He, too, was principally instrumental in getting up the great Rotunda meeting in 1828 to petition for emancipation... as soon as emancipation was granted, Wyse published ‘A Letter to my Fellow Countrymen,’ recommending the dissolution of the Catholic Association, since its object had been achieved and the country needed quiet. Immediately afterwards he published the ‘Historical Sketch of the Catholic Association’ " - DNB. Uncommon in commerce.

        Floral Illustrations of the Seasons,

      London: Robert Havell and Baldwin & Craddock,, 1829-1831. Consisting of The Most Beautiful, Hardy and Rare Herbaceous Plants, Cultivated in the Flower Garden, from Drawings by Mrs Edward Roscoe, Liverpool, Engraved by R. Havell, Junr. Quarto. Recent green half morocco, spine gilt in compartments with a red morocco label, marbled sides and edges. Engraved title page, and 55 finely hand-coloured copper-engraved plates by Robert Havell jun. after Roscoe, some partially printed in colour. Slight tanning around edges of the marbled paper sides, some very minor spots or offsetting to occasional plates, but an excellent copy, with the colouring very finely done. First edition of Roscoe's beautifully presented work of floral illustration, published between 1829 and 1831 (our copy has 6 plates watermarked 1828, and 3 watermarked 1830) with the dedication to William Roscoe, F.L.S. (the author's father in law), dated 1829 and an overall engraved title page dated 1831. Mrs Edward Roscoe is better known as a botanical artist under her maiden name Margaret Lace, and is the mother of poet and novelist Margaret Sandbach (1812-52). The fine engravings and aquatints by Robert Havell exhibit his mastery as a natural history illustrator. This copy includes, as typical pieces of Victorian ephemera, a large papercut doily (laid in, and the cause of some slight offsetting), a folded leaf printing a stock-poem entitled "Lines Addressed to a Young Friend Upon the Point of Marriage", and a single leaf bearing the manuscript note: "I have pressed a moccassin flower of the prairie for you to see, they are like a lovely orchid when open, and you see we have daisies very like English ones." Though, regrettably, the prairie flower is lost, this note nonetheless evinces a charming transatlantic floral correspondence. Scarce.

      John Murray, 1829 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.

        Amir Khan, and Other Poems: the remains of Lucretia Maria Davidson, who died at Plattsburgh, N. Y. August 27, 1825, aged 16 years and 11 months. With a biographical sketch, by Samuel F.B. Morse

      New York: G. & C. & H. Carvill, 1829 - Above and beyond any question as to the merits of her poetry, the death of the American prodigy / poetess at "sixteen years and eleven months", the posthumous publication of her poems in this volume, the portrait of her given by Morse in his biographical sketch, and above all, a subsequent article by Robert Southey in the quarterly review, caught the imagination of critics and poets across the Atlantic, and contributed greatly to the developement of a conception of the Romantic poetess as sacrificial victim on the altar of her own genius. Southey's comparison of her with her boy counterpart, Thomas Chatterton, fit with the prevailing need, as did Morse's portrait of her physical attributes: "In person, Miss Davidson was possessed of great beauty; a high, open forehead, a soft, black eye, perfect symmetry of features, fair complexion, and luxuriant, dark hair." - p. xxvii. An important book in the development of the popular ideology of the "poetess" -- and now quite rare on the market First edition. 12mo. xxix, [31], 174 pp. Contemporary calf and boards, worn and rubbed, small tear in spine.

        A Collection of Two Letters Dated Rochefort, December 27 & 28th 1829 (1842?) to Vice-Admiral Le Blanc and Baron Duperre discussing Capitaine Colomb's Desire to be Sent to Serve France in the Marquesas Islands

      Rochefort, 1829 Letter. Near Fine. No Binding. Rochefort: 1829 (1842?). Two Letters, Two Pages Each. Each 26 x 20cm (10 x 8 inches). Both letters in near fine condition. These two interesting letters give an early account of the French conquest of the Marquesas Islands. "The American Maritime Fur Trader Joseph Ingraham first visited the northern Marquesas while commanding the brig Hope in 1791, giving them the name Washington Islands. In 1813, Commodore David Porter claimed Nuku Hiva for the United States, but the United States Congress never ratified that claim, and in 1842, France, following a successful military operation on behalf of a native chief (named Iotete) who claimed to be king of the whole of the island of Tahuata, took possession of the whole group, establishing a settlement (abandoned in 1859) on Nuku Hiva. French control over the group was reestablished in 1870, and later incorporated into the territory of French Polynesia" (Wikipedia)..
