      Te Amsterdam, bij: Lodewijk van Es,, 1830.. xiii [i], [82] pp. Folio (25.5 x 40 cm.). recent 3/4 grained chesnut morocco, uncut.. With 47 plates on 38 engraved copper plates, of which 8 with partial contemporary hand colouring. The plates are re-engraved after the plates de Wandelaer made for the Albinus edition of Eustachius (1744). ¶ Very rare, being a reissue of the remainder of the original plates and text sheets of 1798 with only a new title page and preface by Suringar. 'A romantic history attaches to this fine collection of plates, drawn by Eustachius himself and completed in 1552. They remained unprinted and forgotten in the Vatican Library until discovered in the early 18th century, and were then presented by Pope Clement XI to his physician Giovanni Maria Lancisi. The latter published them in 1714 together with his own notes. These copperplates are more accurate than the work of Vesalius. Singer was of the opinion that had they appeared in 1552 Eustachius would have ranked with Vesalius as one of the founders of modern anatomy...' (Garrison & Morton 391). Chouland (p. 202) don't mentions this edition.-- (Light waterstain in the upper corner of a few leaves, a few plates partly slight foxed; the plates are bound befor the text).

        Fleet Street Prison

      c. 1830. Watercolour. Signed l.l. "T. Hosmer Shepherd" In excellent condition with bright fresh colour. Lower left corner has been expertly in- filled where a small section of paper was missing. 4 15/16 x 6 1/8 inches. A fine watercolour of a debtor in Fleet Street Prison, by the celebrated English painter Thomas Hosmer Shepherd. Virtually en grisaille, this is an exceptionally carefully drawn watercolour of the grille on Farringdon Street, built into the wall of Fleet Prison so that inmates could beg passersby for coins. Over the grille in the lunette formed by the arch are the words: "Pray Remember Poor Debtors Having No Allowance". A gray haired man stands and calls out to the empty sidewalk. Fleet Prison was run for profit, and the wardens and guards basically lived by extorting the prisoners, who had to pay for room and board. They were subject to all sorts of mistreatment. Fleet Prison was built in 1197, burnt down and re- built several times, finally closed in 1844 and demolished in 1846. Thomas Hosmer Shepherd was one of the most esteemed watercolourists of his day. An industrious painter and draftsman, Shepherd produced a wealth of images illustrating street scenes and old buildings in London. His handsome paintings combine a natural quality attentive to detail, making them some of the most appealing views of the metropolis. Shepherd worked almost exclusively for the eminent publisher Frederick Crace. His illustrations grace the pages of some of the era's most important texts, including "Metropolitan Improvements, or London in the Nineteenth Century", "A Picturesque Tour of the Regents Canal", and "London and its Environs in the Nineteenth Century".

        Portuguese Naval Signal Book

      This is a dictionary of phrases and words to be sent by means of a Portuguese signaling system. The system employs twenty-nine differently colored and patterned flags and pennants used in varying combinations. The flags are illustrated by hand colored drawings on the first leaf of the book. The following pages assign numbers to types of warships and merchant vessels, commonly used phrases, place names, ports, distances, etc. These numbers would be displayed by the signal flag combinations. This is followed by a lengthy dictionary of words using a double numbering system of signal flags to allow for thousands of combinations. All the words and phrases are in Portuguese. No place, date, or author information is given, but the paper is watermarked “C. Wilmot 1830.” Bound in worn leather over marbled boards.

        Autograph manuscript leaf written entirely in John Quincy Adams' hand concerning trade between the US and Western British colonies from 1782-1826

      Autograph manuscript leaf in the hand of John Quincy Adams, no place, circa 1830, 1 pp, 8" x 5". The manuscript leaf is presumably intended to accompany a longer document and referencing trade between the United States and its neighboring British colonies, reading: "This review of the commerical Relations between the United States of American and the British Colonies in this Hemisphere from the period of the Peac of 1782 till the Mission of Mr. Gallatin to Great Britain was necessary for the right Understanding of thier present State; which will form the subject of another paper." This autograph manuscript leaf, written in the hand of John Quincy Adams, appears to have been written to explain a separate document or treatise (no longer present). The leaf refers to trade relations between the United States and the remaining Western British Colonies from 1782 to Gallatin's appointment as minister to Great Britain (1826-1827). The handwriting on this leaf suggests it was from late in Adams' life. "Adams, who recognized himself as a 'man of reserved, cold, austere, and forbidding manners,' had found great satisfaction in a congressional career that brought him plaudits among slavery opponents as a popular hero, 'Old Man Eloquent,' 'Defender of the Rights of Man.' Historically, however, his reputation rests most firmly on the policies he pursued as diplomat and president. Aptly characterized by one biographer as 'an Independent Man,' Adams was a poor politician, unwilling to cater to popular interests and reluctant even to compromise. But sound judgment and a strong commitment to public service led him to formulate and stubbornly adhere to views of public policy that over the years have won strong approval" (ANB).

        Book of Mormon: An account written by the hand of Mormon, upon Plates taken from the Plates of Nephi

      Palmyra, NY: E.B. Grandin, 1830. First Edition. 588pp. Octavo [19 cm] Original plain brown calf boards with seven gilt stamped double bands on the backstrip. Black leather label on the backstrip with 'Book of Mormon' gilt stamped on it. The light blue robin egg speckling to the fore edge is faint but visible. The front hinge is starting at the foot, and the text block shows sporadic foxing. Two endsheets are present at the front and rear of this book. This is an unsophisticated copy that has had no work. A nice copy of this important work. Printed in an edition of five thousand copies by Egbert B. Grandin in upstate New York. Printing took place between August 1829 and March 1830, in the Grandin building that Egbert rented from his brother, Philip. Before the 1830 edition of the Book of Mormon was officially published, sections were being printed in a local Palmyra newspaper called The Reflector. The newspaper was run by Abner Cole who used the pseudonym "Obediah Dogberry." After some discussion, Joseph Smith finally convinced Cole to stop his piracy of the book. This "preprinting" of excerpts from the book caused non-Mormons some concern about the doctrines of the Mormon church, and thus, began the initial persecution of the Mormons themselves. The 1830 first edition book of Mormon includes many variant copies with printing errors in pagination and spelling. Part of the reason for these variants may be explained by the fact that Joseph Smith used several scribes when writing the book. The scribes included: his wife, Emma Hale Smith, his brother-in-law, Reuben Hale, Martin Harris and Oliver Cowdery. According to Peter Crawley "…it is possible that very few copies of the book exist which are entirely identical." A highly sought after book by historical, religious and Mormon book collectors alike.

        An English and Japanese and Japanese and English vocabulary. Compiled from native works

      printed by lithography Batavia: printed by lithography. 1830. "First edition of the first Japanese-English dictionary, printed on a lithographic press at Batavia, the present day city of Jakarta, Indonesia; 8vo, pp. viii, [2], 344; text largely in triple column, with the Japanese printed in both Roman and Japanese characters together with English equivalents; later half calf over marbled boards, black morocco label on gilt-decorated spine, marbled edges, with a note on the verso of the front free endpaper ""3 dollars - Hong Kong. Bound 1860. Arthur Paget November 10 1857."" A very good copy, in a quarter red morocco clamshell box. Walter Henry Medhurst (1796-1857) was an English missionary who served an apprenticeship in the printing trade before joining the Missionary Society. He was sent to Malacca in 1817 where he spent almost 20 years doing Protestant missionary work in what is now Indonesia. After the Opium War he moved to Shanghai in order to assist in a translation of the New Testament into Chinese, and remained in China until his return to England in 1856. Medhurst's long career in the Far East made him familiar not only with Malay and Chinese, but also with Japanese. Although he never visited Japan, he set about compiling the present work from whatever sources he could find at hand. As for the quality of printing, Medhurst writes in his introduction that ""the printing needs a thousand excuses; but it must be remembered that the work has been executed at a Lithographic press, by a self-taught artist, and in a warm climate, where the Lithography often fails; also that the whole has been written by a Chinese, who understands neither English nor Japanese."" He also laments that there was no suitable paper available. Medhurst went on to publish a Chinese dictionary and conversation book, but this is his first book, as well as the first book from his amateur press. Not in Trubner's Oriental Catalogue (1882); not in Vancil; Astor Catalogue, p. 146; Zaunmuller, col. 214; 25 copies in OCLC (13 in the U.S.). No copies at auction since 1967; very uncommon in the trade."

        De cellulis antherarum fibrosis nec non de granorum pollinarium formis commentatio phytotomica

      Breslau: Grueson, 1830. Purkyne, Jan Evangelista (1787-1869).

Original boards, original printed label on cover, slight wear. Light foxing & browning but very good. Signatures on endpaper. Breslau [Wroclaw]: Grueson, 1830.First Edition. Purkyne anticipated Brown?s discovery of the cell nucleus, and was acknowledged by Brown to have done so in his 1831 account before the Linnean Society, published at large in 1833 (see Garrison-Morton 109). ?Stimulated by his colleague A.W. Henschel, Purkyne studied plant structures, mainly the elastic fibrous cells of the anthers and the form of the pollen and spores in relation to the mechanism of their dispersion. In his extensive comparative study, combining anatomy with physiology, he distinguished structural types, and drew attention to mechanical factors and the role of cells in the differentiation of plant tissues. His dynamic concept was recognized mainly by French botanists? (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). Morton, History of Botanical Science (1981), p. 376. Pritzel 7368.

      London: Henry Colburn and Richard Bentley, 1830 First edition. Nineteenth-century half red morocco over decorative boards, gilt spine. . Three volumes in one, large twelvemo. Some rubbing and a few scuffs to binding extremities. A very good copy of a scarce set. This is a an exhaustive survey of Greek mythology, intended "as a useful and not inelegant manual, for the purposes of education in schools and families; besides forming a compendium suited to the cabinet or study of the amateur of the fine arts, and an interesting vade mecum for the young traveller in his tour through Italy and other countries of classic interest." It is dedicated to the future Victoria, then a child of eleven, and with the death of her uncle George IV and the accession of his brother William Duke of Clarence, the presumptive heir to the British throne.The name of the author is unknown, though she is clearly educated and literature. The dedication is dated Wadlands, July 1829.

        The Cabinet of Natural History and American Rural Sports: Volume I

      Philadelphia: J. & T. Doughty, 1830. First edition. Hardcover. Very good. First edition. Volume I. 4to. vii,[1],298,[2];pp., plus 24 hand-colored lithographic plates, and uncolored engraved portrait of Charles Willson Peale. Engraved title page. Contemporary calf boards, rebacked to style in matching leather, and with the original spine laid-in. Text is brown and spotted, the plates less so with very good coloring. Several pages have been expertly remargined at the fore edge (no loss) else this is a very good copy. Gift inscription on the front free endpaper dated 1832. Very rare and among the first American books to be illustrated with lithographic plates. The Cabinet of Natural History was started by brothers Thomas and John Doughty in Philadelphia. It was issued in monthly parts and ran from the end of 1830 until the spring of 1834 However, despite its relatively short life, it left behind an important legacy: Bennett calls it the "first major sport print color plate book produced in America," the text includes firsthand accounts of hunting expeditions of all kinds and are among the earliest of their kind. The plates include the "first colored sporting prints made in America" (Henderson), and most importantly the work includes a significant number of original lithographs by one of the great names in 19th-century American art. The first volume (made up of twelve parts ) was certainly the work of both Doughty brothers, with virtually all the plates being the work of Thomas. "Artistically, Vol. 1 is much the most important, for it contains the original plates by Thos. Doughty, famous painter and founding father of the Hudson River School" - Bennett. Indeed the plates in the later volumes are from a multitude of hands and sources. "The coloured plates are important - being the first coloured sporting prints made in America. There is only one earlier American book with coloured plates that I know of, and that is a treatise on Medical Botany - published in Philadelphia in 1817. Many of these coloured plates of animals and birds are charming, the colouring is soft, correct as to details, and all are well drawn" - Gee.

        Broadside on cloth: Mary's Lamb in Sunday Lessons, No. 1

      Boston: Boston Chemical Printing Company. [circa1830-32]. First. First edition. Printed on cotton cloth hemmed on four sides. Approximately 12" x 11.5". Several modest and scattered rust stains, but no fraying or other wear, a very good or better example. Printed in three columns divided by lines of type ornaments within an overall border of type ornaments. Cuts at head of each column are of boys in Sunday School; a boy playing with a lamb; and a woman reading to young girls. Five other hymns or prayers surrounding the central poem: Mary's Lamb by Mrs. Hale. Better known now by the first line, "Mary Had a Little Lamb," Hale's poem was first published in the magazine The Juvenile Miscellany. (Boston: Putnam and Hunt, September, 1830) and in book form in Poems for Our Children, also in 1830. A revised version was published by Hale in The School Song Book. (Boston: Allen & Ticknor, 1834). Our version seems to be identical in text to the original version, so our presumption is that this precedes the 1834 The School Song Book. According to OCLC six examples (of four separate titles, not including this one) of broadsides on cloth by this publisher/manufacturer exist in American libraries, one apparently dated 1830, the others attributed to that decade. Thomas Edison made this poem the first words ever recorded when he spoke them into his new invention, the phonograph, in 1877. Rare. .

        ANTOLOGIA, giornale di scienze, lettere ed arti - 1830 anno X COMPLETO - VOLUMI XXXVII-XL Fascicoli dal 109 al 120., Firenze, Gabinetto VIEUSSEUX, 1830

      formato 15,5 x 25,5, brossure con copertine grigie, fogli in barbe e molti ancora chiusi. Buone condizioni generali . Pagine 180-200 per ogni volume + indici ed allegati. La rivista iniziò nel gennaio 1821 e si concluse con il volume 144 del dicembre 1832. La pubblicazione venne soppressa dal Governo del Granducato ed i fascicoli di gennaio e febbraio 1833 vennero stampati ma non pubblicati. (vedi Righini volume I, pag.40 posizione 136) La rivista era nata per ospitare soltanto importanti traduzioni ed estratti da edizioni straniere. Mentre in Europa stavano mutando governi e soprattutto i fermenti patriottici e di "cambiamento prendevano sostanza", il gruppo di intellettuali riuniti attorno alla rivista da G.P. Vieusseux prese coscienza di potere interpretare un ruolo di guida politica di spirito (ad anche marcatamente culturale) LIBERALE ED INNOVATORE APERTO ANCHE ALL'EUROPA e cavalcò questo ruolo moderato per alcuni anni, puntando sul fatto che il Granducato era il solo che permetteva una certa libertà di pensiero. Ebbe un largo successo ed i suoi 500 abbonati superavano di gran lunga quelli di rinomati periodici lombardi e settentrionali. Ma poi si crearono forti ostilità da parte delle autorità , prima con interventi censori e poi con la definitiva chiusura della rivista. Espressione viva del nostro RISORGIMENTO LIBERALE, fu la prima rivista dove lo spirito nazionale si trovò riunito e risvegliò le coscienze. Eccezionale ed autorevole la schiera dei collaboratori.

        Portuguese Naval Signal Book

      This is a dictionary of phrases and words to be sent by means of a Portuguese signaling system. The system employs twenty-nine differently colored and patterned flags and pennants used in varying combinations. The flags are illustrated by hand colored drawings on the first leaf of the book. The following pages assign numbers to types of warships and merchant vessels, commonly used phrases, place names, ports, distances, etc. These numbers would be displayed by the signal flag combinations. This is followed by a lengthy dictionary of words using a double numbering system of signal flags to allow for thousands of combinations. All the words and phrases are in Portuguese. No place, date, or author information is given, but the paper is watermarked “C. Wilmot 1830.” Bound in worn leather over marbled boards.

Simpkin and Marshall [and] Messrs. Newton and Berry, globemakers, n.d.". [ca. 1830]. "First and likely only edition, 12mo, pp. [4], 335, [1]; 3 engraved folding plates; tables and diagrams in the text; contemporary full polished tan calf, gilt border on covers, black morocco label on gilt- decorated spine; extremities rubbed, joints starting but the binding remains sound; a good copy or better.& & The Preface is dated ""Kensington, June 1, 1830"". The lexicon of terms occupies better than half the book.& & Thomas Whiting was the Master of Keppel House Academy -- or Keppel House Seminary -- which was near Brompton, London. He was also a writer of several popular astronomical and mathematical works, notably The London gentleman's and schoolmaster's assistant (1787); Mathematical, Geometrical, and Philosophical Delights (1798), and A Comprehensive System of Astronomy, both Theoretic and Practical, etc. (1828).& & Interestingly, Whiting wrote his book such as to be useable in conjunction with globes made by the firm Newton and Berry. In his preface Whiting says the ""most modern"" globes are those of Newton and Berry, and the firm appears even in the imprint on the title page as one of the sellers of Whiting's book. Dahl and Gauvin's book Sphaerae Mundi: Early Globes at the Stewart Museum (2000) states the Newton family, ""along with the Cary family, were the most important globe makers in the England in the nineteenth century"" (p. 100).& & But what's this? This book appears to be totally unrecorded. Not found in ESTC, COPAK, OCLC, NUC, or KVK. "
