        Yellow-Billed Cuckoo [Pl. 2]

      London: 1829. Hand-coloured engraving with etching by W. H. Lizars, retouched and aquatint added by R. Havell, Jr., 1829, paper watermarked "J. Whatman/1833". 25 ¼ x 33 3/8 inches. From the first edition of "The Birds of America." One of Audubon's finest and most lively images from the very early days of the production of his masterpiece. The legend "No.1" in the top left of the plate indicates that the first issue of this image was included in the first of the periodic parts that were to appear between 1827 and 1838. This image was first issued by Lizars of Edinburgh, the plate was then transferred to Havell in London who added aquatint and re- issued it. There were two variants issued by Lizars and two by Havell, the present copy with the "Z" in "Coccyzus" and Havell mentioned in the imprint is the second variant of the second issue. "This bird is not abundant anywhere, and yet is found very far north. I have met with it in all the low grounds and damp places in Massachusetts, along the line of Upper Canada, pretty high on the Mississippi and Arkansas, and in every state between these boundary lines. Its appearance in the State of New York seldom takes place before the beginning of May, and at Green Bay not until the middle of that month...They feed on well as berries of many kinds, evincing a special predilection for the mulberry. In the autumn they eat many grapes, and I have seen them supporting themselves by a momentary motion of their wings opposite a bunch, as if selecting the ripest, when they would seize it and return to a branch, repeating their visits in this manner until satiated" (J. J. Audubon, The Birds of America, New York & Philadelphia: 1840-1844, vol. IV, pp.294-295). "Old World cuckoos lay their eggs in the nests of other birds. New World cuckoos do not...Cuckoos are slender...birds, more often heard than seen...Country people, believing that their vocalizations signaled rain, once called them 'rain crows.' In this spirited composition, one of his finest, Audubon has shown a pair of yellow-billed cuckoos in a fruiting paw-paw. One has caught a tiger swallowtail...One of Audubon's correspondents noted that cuckoos are much more numerous some years than others, a fact that has been confirmed fully since then. It is believed that cyclic outbreaks of tent caterpillars coincide with these fluctuations" (R. T. & V. M. Peterson, Audubon's Birds of America, London: 1981, no. 232). Susanne M. Low, A Guide to Audubon's Birds of America, New Haven & New York: 2002, p.29 (fourth variant of four).

        Narrative and Successful Result of a Voyage in the South Seas

      London,: Hurst, Chance and Co., 1829.. Two volumes, octavo, plates (two folding, one coloured), and a folding map; plates crisp, with one or two subtle reinforcements at folds; repair to title-page of volume two otherwise an excellent copy in half green morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, spine banded and gilt. The solution of the La PÈrouse mystery: an excellent copy of the first edition in English.Forty years after the French explorer first disappeared, Peter Dillon, a sandalwood trader, called at the Solomons; when a silver sword guard was shown to him, he suspected that he might have accidentally discovered the solution of a mystery that had tormented the French for so long. He returned to India and persuaded the government of Bengal to sponsor an expedition. At Vanikoro he found many relics including a portion of the stern of the Boussole, ships' bells stamped 'Bazin m'a fait', monogrammed silver, metal fragments and mill stones known to have been aboard. One native had a glass piece from a thermometer in his nose. Dillon was made a Chevalier of the Legion d'Honneur, his expenses defrayed and granted a pension. His book was commercially successful, appearing in English and French editions promptly and eventually in a number of translations.Although Captain Peter Dillon is best known for his role in finding the wreck of La PÈrouse's two vessels, the account also shows a passing interest in the voyages of the Bounty, and of the Pandora, and, especially in the region of the island of Rothuma, gives detailed notes on the charting done by Captain Edwards and published on an Arrowsmith chart.Ferguson, 1255; Hill, 480; Hocken, p. 44; Spence, 'Bligh', p.15.

      Mexico. [nd, but 1829-1834].. Four watercolors on paper. Watercolors of various sizes, as indicated below; each mounted on card stock, archivally matted (19 x 23 inches) and protected with a mylar sheet. Contemporary pencil inscriptions in bottom right corners. A few extremely minor clean tears in a few corners repaired. Watercolors very clean, colors bright and fresh. The set in near fine condition. A marvellous suite of four highly accomplished watercolors which served as the models for four lithographs published in Carl Nebel's VOYAGE PITTORESQUE ET ARCHÉOLOGIE, DANS LA PARTIE LA PLUS INTÉRESSANTE DU MEXIQUE. The watercolors all depict native and mestizo inhabitants situated in dry landscapes with hills in the background. The images represent a variety of local types and occupations, including Indian women, men, and children; adult mestizos; coal miners; mule skinners; and fruit vendors. The costumes are portrayed with much attention to detail, particularly the embroidered clothing worn by the native women and the male laborers' costumes; and the foregrounds and background are finely rendered with light washes. A German architect and painter, Nebel travelled to Mexico in 1829 "to paint scenes of a country he knew from the writings of Humboldt, Antonio León y Gama, Bernal Díaz del Castillo, and Hernán Cortés. He remained in Mexico until 1834, visiting and painting the cities of Puebla, Zacatecas, Aguascalientes, Guadalajara, Veracruz, Jalapa, Mexico, and San Luis Potosí. He returned to Europe and in Paris prepared his memorable VOYAGE PITTORESQUE ET ARCHÉOLOGIE with its fifty plates" (Howgego). The university trained artist "was drawn there at first by an interest in the archaeological remnants of the Aztec empire, but became a visual chronicler of modern Mexico as well. Nebel was one of many European artists intrigued by the landscape and peoples of the former Spanish empire in the Americas, barred from view for centuries, but from the 1820s onward open to both travel and investment, and of particular interest to the French and English. His book combines a taste for the picturesque with a clear-eyed evaluation of the country and its assets" (Miles and Reese). Nebel's VOYAGE PITTORESQUE was first published in Paris in 1836 with fifty lithographic plates, twenty of which were issued in color. A Spanish translation of the work, utilizing the same plates, was published in Paris and Mexico three years later (but with nearly all the plates in the later edition handcolored or tinted). Of the twenty color lithographs in the 1836 edition, ten specifically portray local inhabitants of various classes; six of these are of natives or working- class mestizos. The present watercolors consists of four of these six images, including two of the three illustrations of Indians published in the VOYAGE. Comparison of these watercolors and the published images are instructive in regards to the lithographer's art and craft. The individuals in all of the lithographs are darker than in the original artwork, lending weight to the figures and providing both the natives and mestizos with darker skin than originally portrayed. Certain details, such as elements of costumes and architectural motifs, are highlighted or expanded in the published images, while other visual elements in the foreground and background of the lithographs are given less emphasis than in the original. Such changes between the original watercolors and the printed images highlight the technical and aesthetic concerns of the lithographer and publisher in creating reproduced images for the market. The four individual watercolors in this suite, with titles transcribed from the original pencil inscriptions and compared to the titles in the 1836 edition, are described as follow: 1) "Indios carboneros y la moradora de la vecinidad de Mexico." 11 x 15 inches. The lithograph of this image is entitled "Indios carboneros y la buradores de la vecin dad de Mexico," while the accompanying printed text reads: "Indios carboneros y laburadores de le vecindad de Mexico." Two Indian coal miners, one carrying a large wooden crate on his back which is secured by a head- brace, with an Indian woman carrying a child. The figures are accompanied by a mule transporting large wooden crates containing fruit. One of the men wears a handsome cloak of animal skins. 2) "Indios de la Sierra al S E de Mexico." 11 x 15 inches. This image is entitled "Indias de la Sierra al S.E. de Mexico" on the lithograph and in the printed text. Four Indian women in native costume, one holding flowers and accompanied by a young boy. All four women are wearing embroidered native clothing. Two of the women also have folded white cloths on their heads, while the one with the young boy wears an embroidered scarf as a hat. One woman, with her back to the viewer, is portrayed with red and blue cloth woven into her long braids. 3) "Gente de Sierra Lahonte entre Pahanlba y Misaubla." 9 ¾ x 13 inches. The lithograph is entitled "Gente de Tierra Caliente entre Papantla y Misantla," while the accompanying text reads: "Gente de la costa entre Papantla y Misantla." Two Mexican men, one offering or selling fruit to the other man sitting on horseback, and one Mexican woman carrying two pots on her head. The woman is standing in a classical pose, which is emphasized by the geometric motif decorating the bottom of her clothing. A local building with a straw roof and a larger stone structure, perhaps a church, is seen in the background. 4) "Arrieros." 11 ¾ x 16 inches. The lithograph has the same title, the published text with the variant spelling, "Arieros." Three Mexican mule skinners working to coax an overloaded mule back on its feet. The man on the left, leading the animal with a rope, is dressed in a full poncho. The other two men, one riding a horse and brandishing a whip, are pushing and driving the mule from the rear. In the background, one other horse and three other mules with loads are seen. In the published image the mule's load is considerably darker and looks even heavier than in this watercolor. The three men are also portrayed with darker skin than seen in this image. Nebel's renown as an illustrator working in Mexico was later confirmed with the publication of George Wilkins Kendall's THE WAR BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES AND MEXICO ILLUSTRATED. This account of the Mexican-American War, published in 1851, included twelve handcolored lithographic plates based on Nebel's paintings of major battles of the war. These dozen images became the source for numerous prints by other artists, who copied and adapted Nebel's illustrations of various conflicts. In a similar manner, many of Nebel's earlier illustrations in his VOYAGE PITTORESQUE were also reproduced and modified by the artist himself as well as other printers and publishers. These included topographic views found in numerous works on the Mexican-American War as well as his depictions of local inhabitants. "Nebel's [VOYAGE] was a classic. It was published in both French and Spanish editions, and several of the fifty illustrations, many of them of the costumbrista or costume-picture genre, were widely copied" - EYEWITNESS TO WAR. A marvellous group of watercolors which served as the basis for four lithographs in Carl Nebel's landmark illustrated account of his travels in Mexico. HOWGEGO 1800-1850, N4. MILES & REESE, AMERICA PICTURED TO THE LIFE 19 (VOYAGE, 1836). Tyler, THE MEXICAN WAR, A LITHOGRAPHIC RECORD, p.18 and passim. M.A. Sandweiss, R. Stewart, & B.W. Huseman, EYEWITNESS TO WAR: PRINTS AND DAGUERREOTYPES OF THE MEXICAN WAR, 1846- 1848, pp.7, 13, 110, 127, 206, and passim.

        Scrap Book,

      London: R. Ackerman &Co.… F.G. Moon… Rowney & Foster… & Cartwright, , 1829. intended for the Reception, Arrangement, Exhibition and Preservation of Prints and Drawings, Poetic Effusions and Prosaic Fragments &c. Quarto (270 × 218 mm) Original red half skiver on marbled boards, spine gilt, dun endpapers. Engraved title page by "I. N…e" and c.100 leaves filled with a selection of engravings and lithographs, clipped and mounted, many with wash borders and inked captions; some original pen and ink cartoons and caricatures; autograph sentiments; few silhouettes, montaged fashion-plates with original colour; and 15 of the figures from Skinner's The Present State of Peru… clipped out and mounted. A little rubbed at the extremities, corners bumped, but overall very good indeed. While there is nothing about the contents of this album that stands out as of exceptional quality, the typicality of the compiler's selection and its overall condition do make it a very attractive of exemplar. Also the presence of the elaborate "calligraphic" engraved title page, with its wonderful periphrastic puffery in a variety of styles, swirled with paraphs, linked together with minuscule text to form a humorous poem on the practice of scrap-booking, must be unusual.

        Don Pápis de Bobadilla, ó sea, Defensa del Cristianismo y Crítica de la Seudo-Filosofía. Por Don Rafael José de Crespo, del Consejo de S. M. y Oidor de la Real Audiencia de Aragón

      Zaragoza, por Polo y Monge, 1829. Seis tomos en tres volúmenes en 8vo.; LXXII-216 pp. + 288 pp. + 305 pp. + XXXVI-292 pp. + 296 pp. + 324 pp. Ejemplar con ligerísimas trazas de polilla marginales en diversas partes que no afectan en absoluto la lectura. Encuadernación uniforme en pasta española, de la época, con dobles tejuelos, ligeramente fatigada. La rarísima novela aragonesa y quijotesca de intención política y moral, calificada de «vano esfuerzo», obra de un personaje apenas conocido hasta las últimas décadas, en las que han proliferado los estudios dedicados al mismo. Crespo, jurista notable, Catedrático de Legislación en la Universidad cesaraugustana, Oídor de la Real Audiencia y abogado en ejercicio permanente, amén de cultísimo lector, no es un escritor al uso, pero su interés radica precisamente en ello. Su honestidad pasa por el amor a su pueblo, Alfajarín «ese pueblo infernal», donde nació y murió, sujeto al poder feudal de la Baronía de Espés, uno de los últimos residuos de tal ejercicio dominical y señorial después de las Cortes de Cádiz, contra el que se rebelaron repetidamente sus connaturales en 1820 y 1830. La defensa de Alfajarín contra el poder de los Espés fue llevada en los Tribunales por Crespo en diversos pleitos con la Baronía por la posesión de las tierras, el pago injustificado de cargas y otras circunstancias

      [San Felipe de Austin: Printed by G.B. Cotten, 1829].. Printed document, completed in manuscript. 6 1/2 x 8 1/4 inches. Signed by Samuel M. Williams. Small tear along old fold (slightly affecting a few letters of printed text). Else very good overall. In a half morocco and cloth box. A rare imprint from the San Felipe de Austin press of Godwin Brown Cotten, an original certificate of admission to Austin's colony. "These grants were the foundation of the colonization of Texas" - Streeter. This document reflects one of the four essential steps in the colonization process, being the empresario's certification stating that the immigrant (in this case a widow named Frances Manifee) had been admitted as a member of Austin's colony. The next step would be to present this certificate to the commissioner charged with issuing land titles in the Colony. This document is signed in manuscript by Samuel M. Williams, a close associate of Stephen F. Austin. Streeter refers to a similar form in his collection dated June 2, 1831, also signed by Samuel M. Williams. "For thirteen years Williams was Austin's lieutenant; he wrote deeds, kept records, and directed colonial activities during the empresario's absences" - NEW HANDBOOK OF TEXAS. This is effectively the earliest obtainable Texas imprint, since any earlier ones are only surmised or exist in a few copies in institutions. It is now extremely rare in the marketplace. The only recent sale of a copy was of a much inferior one, with loss on the top margin, which sold at Sotheby's in the Texas Independence Collection sale on June 18, 2004 for $30,000 including house premium.

Account of Burckhardt's remarkable exploits in Arabia, permitted by his meticulous preparation which allowed him to travel in the guise of Ibrahim ibn Abdallah, an Indian merchant and pilgrim to the holy places, and under which name he was eventually to be buried in the Muslim cemetery at Cairo in 1817. Returning from his exploration down the Nile into Dongola and Abyssinia, he found himself in Jeddah, suffering from fever, and "in great straits for money, since his ragged appearance after his desert hardships belied the credit which he should have obtained from his Egyptian bankers' letters. Fortunately, Mohammed Aly, the viceroy of Egypt, was at the time in the neighbourhood of Mekka, prosecuting his Wahháby campaign, and, hearing of the famous traveller's proximity, summoned him to his presence, and soon relieved him of his difficulties. Burckhardt expressed a wish to visit Mekka as a Mohammedan pilgrim, and the pasha, although he was aware of Burckhardt's nationality, consented, provided he could satisfy a competent committee of Muslim examiners. Two learned doctors of the law thereupon questioned him on the religion of Islam, and ended by pronouncing him not only a Muslim, but an exceedingly learned one. After this Burckhardt supped with the Kady, or chief religious judge of Mekka, said prayers with him, and recited a long chapter of the Koran; and having thus placed himself on the best of terms with the authorities, 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, however, mixed freely with the pilgrims, without once being suspected, and spent September, October, and November of 1814 in Mekka, and in the following January joined a caravan to Medina, in order to visit the prophet's tomb" (Stanley Lane-Poole in DNB). His constitution undermined by the rigours of his time in Africa, Burckhardt was forced to spend time in Cairo recuperating, during which he began organizing his papers for publication, and assisted Belzoni with his excavations, eventually settling in Alexandria "to seek the sea air … for his health." Forced from Cairo by the plague in 1816 he made a brief tour of Suez and Sinai, but following his return he contracted dysentery and died on 15 October 1817. Colonel William Leake, who edited his papers for publication considered that this was "the most accurate and complete account of the Hedjaz, including the cities of Mekka and Medina, which has ever been received in Europe" (Preface). Uncommon, more often encountered in the two-volume second edition of the same year.

      1829. [MENDENHALL, Thomas C.] SIMSON, Robert. THE ELEMENTS OF EUCLID: viz, the first six books, together with the eleventh and twelfth... Philadelphia: Robert Desilver and Thomas Desilver, 1829. Octavo. 516 pp. Contemporary law calf, abraded and soiled, with top board detached. Boyhood signature of Thomas C. Mendenhall, dated 1858, on the front free endpaper. Housed in a protective clamshell box. Mendenhall (American, 1841-1924), a scientist and educator, became the first professor at the Ohio Agricultural and Mechanical College (now Ohio State University) when he was hired in 1873. He was professor of physics and mechanics there until 1878, the year he was recruited on the recommendation of Edward S. Morse to help in the modernization of Meiji Era Japan as one of the o-yatoi gaikokujin (foreign experts). While professor at the University of Tokyo, he developed the government's meteorological service and was a key figure in Japan's development of scientific education. He returned the U.S. and and taught at Ohio State from 1881 until 1884. He went on to serve as president of Rose Polytechnic Institute, in Terre Haute, Indiana, from 1886 to 1889, and as president of Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Massachusetts from 1894 to 1901. Mendenhall was elected president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 1889 However, besides the intrinsic interest of a book that belonged to Mendenhall, it is the two laid-in newspaper clippings that reveal the true significance of this book and its importance to him: They tell the Horatio Alger-like story of how young Mendenhall, a farm boy, bought this book for a dollar with his own hard-earned money and, without realizing it, initiated his long and illustrious career in science and education.

        New Panorama. A Startling Interrogation

      London,: T. McLean,, 1829.. Handcoloured engraving, 300 x 410 mm.; in fine condition, framed. A fine impression of the coloured issue of this rare cartoon, satirising the colony which at this time was desperately trying to attract free immigration. The cashier taking money for the "New Panorama" (probably representing the Colosseum in Regents Park) is shown as if he is selling tickets for a voyage when he is actually selling entrance tickets to one of the fashionably realistic panoramas of exotic foreign places then exhibiting in London."Do you wish to go to Hell or Botany Bay? Sir" he asks, to which the prospective immigrant replies: "I wonts to go to Bottomy Bay"; a young girl exclaims to her enormously fat mother "La Mama I should like to see the Naughty Place better than any thing".William Heath (1795-1840), originally a career soldier, became well-known as a caricaturist and illustrator. His work reached a wide audience, even outside England: 'on cite aussi de lui des caricatures pleines d'humour sur les moeurs anglaises, vers 1825' (BÈnÈzit Dictionnaire).Separately issued transportation and immigration views are scarce, and this is a particularly charming and amusing example in fine condition. It may be the single caricature by Heath of an Australian subject, though his publisher - Thomas McLean - published material of Australian interest by other artists.Reproduced (although not attributed, and misdated) by Jonathan King: 'The Other Side of the Coin: A Cartoon History of Australia', p. 23.

First Edition of this record of the grand celebrations which took place in honour of the birthday of Alexandra Fyodorovna, Empress of Russia (wife of Czar Nicholas I), born Princess Charlotte of Prussia [1798-1860], who was then in Berlin on a visit to her father, King Frederick William III. The theme of the celebrations was the mediaeval legend of 'Blanchefleur' or the White Rose, a nickname given to Alexandra in childhood. Eleven of the fine hand-coloured plates by Ernst Gärtner, Julius Schoppe, Heinrich Stürmer, and Theodor Hosemann depict the procession of the participants in the tournament regaled in full mediaeval costume. Others depict exterior and interior views of the palace, including one showing the ball in the Grotto Hall, and allegorical tableaux of the Seasons, Virtues and other subjects. The two copies that have appeared at auction in the last fifteen years were lacking one of the 9 middle plates. The present copy is unusual in that all of the plates are hand-coloured rather than just the processional plates and the interior view. Lipperheide Sbb31.

        Annals and Antiquities of Rajast’han, or the Central and Western Rajpoot States of India

      London: published by Smith, Elder, & Co. and Calkin & Budd, 1829-1832. 2 volumes, quarto. (12 3/8 x 9 7/8 inches). 3 letterpress tables (2 folding). 50 plates, plans and maps by Edward Finden and others after Captain Waugh, Ghafasi and others (including: 1 folding engraved map, hand- coloured in outline, 28 engraved plates after Waugh [1 folding], 11 engraved plates after Ghafasi, 3 lithographs [1 folding, 2 drawn on stone by Louis Haghe and on india paper mounted]). Later half calf over marbled paper boards, spine with raised bands in six compartments, red and black morocco lettering pieces in the second and fourth compartments, t.e.g. First edition of this valuable early study of the history, beliefs and topography of Rajasthan in north west India. The author went to India as a cadet in the Bengal army of the British East India Company in 1799. He commanded the escort attached to the Resident at Sindhia from 1812 to 1817. In the latter year he was in charge of the Intelligence Department which largely contributed to the break up of the Maratha Confederacy in the Third Anglo-Maratha War, and was of great assistance in the campaign in Rajputana. In 1818 he was appointed political agent for the states of western Rajputana, where he successfully acted as an aribitrator between rival chieftains, settling their feuds. While Resident in Rajputana, Tod collected materials for his Annals and Antiquities of Rajasthan, a work of great importance for South Asian scholars. At the dawn of the archaeological and historical study of India, Tod presents the contemporary geography and a detailed history of Rajputana along with the history of the Rajput clans who ruled most of the area at that time. Tod's work drew on local archives, Rajput traditional sources, and monuments such as the Edicts of Asoka found at Junagadh. He returned to England in 1823 with a wealth of material for what became a fundamental study of Rajast'han's historical development. The work is ornamented with a fine series of plates, the majority of which are from drawings either by a local artist whose name is given as Ghafsi, or Captain Waugh, a friend and kinsman of the author who died just before the work was published. The work was much appreciated in the region at the time, to the extent that the ruler of Udaipur renamed a village in Tod's honour: Barsawada became "Todgarh" (or Tods fort) - a name that it still bears today.

Folio (11-1/2" x 14-1/2") bound in contemporary half brown leather with leather corners, though the spine is lacking and both covers are detached. The atlas volume only consisting of a title page and 76 beautiful hand-colored plates, mostly multi-image. Wood (p. 360) notes that "the hand-colored drawings in the atlas are from the original copper plates, colored anew by pigments which seem to have been of better quality than those used by Wilson" in the first edition published 15 - 20 years earlier. A superb American production. Along with Audubon it is one of the color plate masterpieces of the 19th century, but significantly less expensive to obtain though becoming very difficult to locate. Colors still bright, occasional and light spot of foxing or small stain, but generally quite clean with most tissue guards still present. Minor edge tear on one or two plates not extending into image; a few plates detached. Both endpapers and blanks wrinkled to varying degrees.

Édition originale. « Monsieur Fontanier, consul à Trébizonde, nous donne successivement des portraits exacts et vivants des parties les moins explorées de l’Empire ottoman » (Alphonse de Lamartine, Voyage en Orient, t. I, Avertissement, p. VII). Premier voyage en orient exécuter par ordre du gouvernement français. Victor Fontanier (1796-1857), naturaliste de formation, attaché à l’ambassade de France à Constantinople, fera un second voyage en Orient [intitulé deuxième voyage en Anatolie] pendant les années 1830 à 1833 (Paris, Librairie de Dumont, 1834, in-8°). Parti de France en 1821, Victor Fontanier se rendit à Constantinople, à Odessa, puis dans les provinces russes du Caucase. Il visita Bakou ainsi que les rivages de la mer Caspienne, pénétra en Perse par Erevan, Nakhitchevan, Tabriz ; parvint à Bagdad par Hamadan, descendit le Tigre jusqu’à Bassora. Par le sud de la Perse, l’auteur se rendit en Géorgie, parcourut le Guriel et la Mingrelie avant de retourner à Constantinople en longeant la côte Lazique ou Lazistan (côtes de la mer Noire – pays des Lazes) tout en empruntant les routes les moins parcourues pour gagner la capitale du vaste Empire ottoman, où il se livra à de nouvelles observations. Fontanier quitta Constantinople pour se rendre à Smyrne par Brousse, Apollonie et Mohalich. Son long périple se termina par la visite des îles de l’Archipel grec en pleine guerre d’Indépendance grecque (1821-1830). L’itinéraire de notre voyageur le conduisit successivement dans les grandes villes de Turquie d’Asie. Sa marche fut rapide et sans réel repos, mais cela ne l’empêcha cependant pas de recueillir un nombre important de renseignements géographiques, géologiques, ainsi que de précieux détails sur les mœurs des populations visitées. Son récit est vif et d’un grand intérêt. FIRST EDITION. VERY NICE COPY. COMPLETE. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Précis de la Géographie Universelle, ou Description de toutes les parties du monde, sur un plan nouveau, d'après les grandes divisions naturelles du globe; précédée de l'Histoire de la Géographie chez les Peuples anciens et modernes....

      a Paris, Chez Fr. Buisson, 1810 - 1829. 1829 8 voll. di testo in-8° (210x135mm) e un vol. di atlante in-folio (375x280mm). I voll. di testo sono legati in m. pelle marrone coeva con titolo, filetti e tomaison in oro e fregi in oro e a secco ai dorsi. Tabelle n.t. Il vol. di atlante è in cartonatura coeva bicolore. L'atlante consta di 24 cartografie finemente incise su rame da Tardieu da invenzione di Giraldon e con i confini territoriali delle nazioni in bella coloritura coeva di Diot. In barbe, in ottimo stato conservativo, con solo alcune sparse quanto lievi fioriture e bruniture. Prima edizione di questa importante opera ottocentesca di geografia universale, rara a trovarsi completa dell'atlante iconografico. L'opera è così ripartita: I. Histoire de la géographie. II. Théorie générale de la géographie. III. Description de l"Asie, exceptée l"Inde. IV. Description de l"Inde, de l"Océanique et de l"Afrique Septentrionale. V. Description de l"Afrique Méridionale et des deux Amériques. VI. Description de l"Europe orientale. VII. Suite de la description de l"Europe. VIII. Fin de la description de l"Europe et table générale. Konrad Malte-Brun (propriamente Malte Bruun), insigne geografo danese, nacque a Thisted nel 1755 e scomparve a Parigi nel 1826. Come scrive Robert Ferras nell'opera Les géographies universelles et le monde de leur temps (Paris, 1989), Malte-Brun "proposait une géographie de la découverte et de la mise en place d'une discipline balbutiante malgré ses réalisations, en particulier en cartographie; il a produit une information sur le Monde, autorisée par sa formation à l'étranger, son savoir encyclopédique, sa position au poste clé de la Société Géographique de Paris, sa connaissance des langues étrangères". Brunet, III, 1347. Graesse, IV, 355. Manca al Phillips che, n. 4306, cita un altro atlante, uscito nel 1812.
