        Narrative of an official visit to Guatemala from Mexico

      London: John Murray, 1829. First edition, 12mo, pp. xii, vi, 528, 8 (ads and subscribers' list for Alcedo's A Dictionary of America as revised by Thompson); largely unopened; folding frontispiece map hand-colored in outline; a very pretty copy in original green cloth, paper label on spine; spine browned, else near fine. Palau 331831; Sabin 95511. A very early publisher's cloth binding. While the earliest publisher's cloth bindings date from the third quarter of the 18th-century - mostly canvas over boards, and usually for school texts and readers, the modern concept of the publisher's binding in cloth originated with William Pickering, ca. 1828. Other examples, usually on gift books, were sometimes bound in moire silk, or velvet, ca. 1828-1830. This example, published by Murray (certainly among his earliest examples), is in full cloth, and the printed label gives the price as 10s. 6d. (presumably so bound). A binder's ticket at the back identifies S. Woolnough, 7 Upper James Street, Golden Square. Another interesting feature is that the subscribers' list (nearly 400 names) is for an entirely different book.

      London, 1829. Sixty-five leaves, including title and contents. Folio. Contemporary three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, neatly rebacked with the original spine laid down, a.e.g. Corners lightly worn. Two plates tanned, some minor scattered foxing else. Very good. Accompanied by a fine three page A.L.S. from the author to Thomas Webster written in delightful nautical prose and including a sketch. Edward William Cooke (1811-80), a Londoner, was the son of an engraver. He created these fine etchings, including plates of H.M.S. Victory, which are considered to be some of the most accurate representations of watercraft of his era. This work was first published in 1829 with just fifty plates. Cooke was a friend of and collaborator with several prominent artists including Clarkson Stanfield, Samuel Prout, Augustus Callcott and John Sell Cotman. The letter included here, postmarked at Barnes in 1836, reads in part: "...I am pretty salubrious again, my ship in port, my bulk broken, derrick rigged & all hands ready to discharge cargo. I may also hint that my cook is aboard, tormentors in hand & all ready at the cheering pipe of the boatswain to fork out "prime mess beef" & "lobscouse" when Admiral Thomas Webster may be pleased to inspect the squadron. Yes, let his broad pennant but be seen in the offing & he may expect a salute of twenty-one from a neat little Brig with her main topsail aback...he'll not range within scope of your Forecastle long swivels but with Fore to'gallant struck he'll drop astern with all due obeisance as the service requires giving his beloved Admiral every advantage of the weather gauge. ... You will observe with dismay that the union Jack is at the Peak, Quarter masters with drawn swords in hands at the gangway, Marines under arms at the Quarter deck - myself & five Captains seated in the ward-room - fetters & chains clanking in the cockpit with a noose well stopped at the Yard arm. Yes the congees to a superior officer are over & this superior officer must prepare himself for Court Martial, loose his epaulettes, unbuckle his sword & take his station alongside of H.M.S. advocate. ... let him tremble from yard-arm to yard-arm from truck to keel. The judgement's pronounced, the flag slowly lowers, the muffled drum rolls & the whistle shrieks - the gun fires &c &c!..." A handsome production with a nice letter from the author.

        Des caractères physiologiques des Races Humaines considérés dans leurs rapports avec l'Histoire. Lettre à M. Amédée Thierry.

      Paris, Compère le Jeune, 1829. - in-8. 2ff. 129pp. Cartonnage mod. genr. anc. Edition Originale de ce texte du naturaliste français William Edwards (1777-1842) qui marque la naissance de l'Ethnologie. "L'Ethnologie prit son origine dans les travaux des historiens du XIXs. et dans la fameuse lettre adressée en 1829 par William Edwards à Amedée Thierry intitulée: "Des caractères physiologiques des races humaines." qui marque une date importante dans l'histoire de l'anthropologie. W. Edwards. montre que les principaux caractères physiques d'un peuple peuvent se conserver à travers les siècles dans la population malgré toutes les influences du climat et des croisements. Ainsi naquit l'Ethnologie qui chercha à retracer l'histoire des groupes humains en s'appuyant sur les traditions historiques, sur les modifications successives de leur langue, de leurs techniques, de leurs coutumes, de leur réligion et de leurs traits physiques" (Histoire de la Science, Pléiade, pp. 1341-1343). En 1839 Edwards fonda la première société savante consacrée à cette science: la "Société Ethnologique de Paris". Rousseurs assez marquées. Bon exemplaire par ailleurs.

        Atlas of delineations of cutaneous eruptions

      London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown & Green, 1829. Thomson, Anthony Todd (1778-1849). Atlas of delineations of cutaneous eruptions; illustrative of the description in the practical synopsis of cutaneous diseases of Thomas Bateman, M.D. F.L.S. 8vo. vii, 112pp. 29 hand-colored engraved plates (numbered 1-17, 18a, 18b, 18-27), some with tissue guards. London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, and Green, 1829. 232 x 166 mm. Half calf gilt, marbled boards ca. 1829, light wear and rubbing. Occasional scattered foxing, but very good. Engraved bookplate of William Edmund Image (1807-1903), surgeon and well-known stamp collector. First Edition. Thomson, one of the British pioneers of dermatology, worked with Thomas Bateman at the latter’s Carey Street clinic and prepared updated editions of Bateman’s Practical Synopsis of Cutaneous Diseases after the author’s death in 1821. “Realizing the value of Bateman’s Delineations of Cutaneous Diseases [1817] in the instruction of students, which on account of expense was out of reach of most of them, [Thomson] published in 1829 an Atlas of Cutaneous Eruptions [sic] which reproduced on a smaller scale many of the illustrations from Bateman’s Atlas and added a number of others” (Gray, p. 458). In 1838 Thomson was appointed professor of materia medica and therapeutics at the newly founded University of London (now University College, London), where he conducted a clinic for skin diseases at University College Hospital, the first clinic of its kind to be established at a teaching hospital.

Its author, a clergyman and with a law degree, although unable to avoid some errors (he did not know the language) and literary exaggerations (in the references to Os Louisiadas and his comparison to the Odyssey), is recognised for having taken a less biased approach to the Portuguese culture and life less biased, though not to say free of prejudices, than was usual since the beginning of the 17th century.- // Refs.: Foulche-Delbosc, 308B."

        [TRIP TO THE CAUCASIAN MOUNTAINS AND GEORGIA] Zapiski vo vremya poyezdki iz Astrakhani na Kavkaz i v Gruziyu v 1827 godu [i.e. Notes during the Trip from Astrakhan to the Caucasus and Georgia in 1827]

      Moscow: Typ. of S. Selivanovsky, 1829. [4], 190 pp. 12mo. With a copper engraved frontispiece. Later 19th century quarter leather with brown cloth boards. Text with mild water stains and foxing, occasional pencil markings and notes in Georgian, binding rubbed, otherwise a very good copy. First edition. Very rare. Captivating description of a travel to the Caucasian Mountains and Georgia by Russian state official and ethnographer Nikolai Nefedyev (1800-1860) with eye-witness account about the events of the Caucasian War (1817-1864) and the Russo-Persian War (1826-1828). Nefedyev travelled together with the rich St. Petersburg drama-lover and amateur singer Nikita Vsevolodovich Vsevolozhsky (1799-1862) and his wife Varvara Petrovna Vsevolozhskaya, nee Khovanskaya (1805-1834). Vsevolozhsky was the founder of the Zelenaya Lampa (The Green Lamp) literary and noble society, and was well-acquainted with many important Russian poets, writers and society figures of the time, including Alexander Pushkin, Anton Delvig, and the Decembrists Sergey Trubetskoy, Fyodor Glinka, Yakov Tolstoy and others. The book was dedicated to his travel companion Varvara Vsevolozhskaya. The party went from Astrakhan to Vsevolozhsky's estate near the Cherny Rynok village (now Kochubey, Dagestan, on the shore of the Caspian Sea), and from there to Tiflis via Georgiyevsk (Stavropol Kray, North Caucasus), Pyatigorsk, Kislovodsk, Yekaterinograd, Vladikavkaz, Balta, Darial Gorge, Pasanauri, and Dusheti. Nefedyev vividly describes sites and people he has seen, including fishing in the mouth of the Terek River, the society of the mineral water resort towns, cost of renting an apartment there, a trip on top of the Mashuk mountain, the procedure of taking mineral water, the latest events of the Caucasian war and raids of the Gortsy (mountain dwellers), Russian forts on the Georgian Military Road, Tiflis architecture and inhabitants et al. He mentions that the resort guests in the Caucasus like to discuss poetry and Pushkin at the water fountains; regrets that he hasn't met General Yermolov who had earlier passed the village where they stayed on his return way from the Caucasian service (Yermolov was the commander-in-chief of the Russian troops in the Caucasus in 1816-1827). In the Urukh fortress he met Semyon Mazarovich (ca. 1784-1852) - the head of the Russian mission in Teheran in 1818-26 - on his way back to Russia. An entry from June 1827 describes his travel along the Georgian Military Road together with the Russian troops which were headed to the Russian-Persian War (1826-28) and mentions a young officer hasting to get to the front before the capture of Erivan (it would happen only in October). Overall a very interesting valuable account of an early Russian travel to the Caucasus. The book is concluded with a table of distances from Astrakhan to Tiflis. The frontispiece shows the Lars fort in the Caucasian mountains on the way to Georgia.

        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.
