        [Photographs, mostly of Egypt].[Egypt and elsewhere], [ca. 1860-ca. 1914]. With 9 carte de visite albumen prints (ca. 8.5 x 5.5 cm) by Hammerschmidt and Van Lint, two albumen prints (9.5 x 12.5 cm) by Sébah mounted on paper, one silver gelatin print (8.5 x 11.5 cm) by Lehnert & Landrock and one silver gelatin print (27 x 21 cm) by Schroeder & Cie in a passepartout.

      Collection of early photographs of North-Africa and the Middle East by several photographers who had worked in the region. The main part of this collection consists of carte de visite portraits by Wilhelm Hammerschmidt (ca. 1830-1869), from the 1860s. Most of them show Egyptians, including a porter carrying a large chest on his back and a blind man. Three outdoor photographs show a group of men, one holding a pipe almost as long as himself, a camel rider and two camels in profile. Two larger photographs by the firm of Pascal Sébah from Istanbul, date from the 1870s or 1880s and show a caravan halting in the desert. Of later date is the single image by the photographic duo Lehnert & Landrock, who worked in Tunis in 1904-1914. Their picture, which was popularly used in picture postcards, shows a small group overlooking an oasis near Tripoli. The largest and most artistic photograph is by the Swiss firm Schroeder & Cie and dates from the 1880s. This striking image shows the Mosque of Muhammad Ali in Cairo, with the crumbling remains of a rock and wall acting as repoussoir and a figure at the front watching from the shade. A strange stowaway in this collection is a single carte de visite by the Italian photographer Enrico Van Lint (1829-1882), of "Galileo's Lamp", the bronze lamp which Vincenzo Possenti created after a drawing by Leon-Battista Alberti in 1587 for the Pisa Cathedral.With 4 of the cartes de visite labelled on the back and one stamped with a name; the paper of the Sebáh photograph with an inscription in English and the Schroeder with an inscription on the back. Some of the sheets or cards on which the photographs are mounted are somewhat tattered at the edges and the cartes de visite have probably been trimmed. Photograph by Lehnert & Landrock with a diagonal fold. All photographs are otherwise in very good condition.

Quelques petites rousseurs. Précieux envoi autographe signé d'Honoré de Balzac : « à Monsieur Leroy comme un témoignage de la reconnaissance de l'auteur. Avril 1831. De Balzac ». Exceptionnel envoi politique à Henry Leroy, dédicataire de l'ultime Lettre sur Paris publiée dans Le Voleur et témoin, aux lendemains des Trois Glorieuses, des velléités électorales de Balzac qui influenceront profondément ses écrits. Au-delà du geste politique, le don de ces Scènes de la vie privée pour satisfaire à ses ambitions publiques inscrivent, dès l'origine de son engagement, la prééminence du projet littéraire sur l'action politique de l'auteur de La Comédie Humaine. Bien qu'il considère la monarchie de Juillet comme une trahison, celle-ci offre à Balzac la possibilité de réaliser un rêve déjà ancien, celui de l'action politique. Déjà en 1819, il écrivait à sa sœur : « Si je suis un gaillard [...], je puis avoir encore autre chose que la gloire littéraire, il est beau d'être un grand homme et un grand citoyen. » La modification des conditions d'éligibilité offre au démiurge l'occasion de participer à l'écriture de la grande Histoire. Balzac, « sur les traces de son modèle, Chateaubriand, veut cumuler les fonctions de penseur et d'acteur du politique » (cf. P. Baudouin in Balzac et le politique). La maturation de cette ambition se fait au travers des Lettres sur Paris, 19 articles publiés dans Le Voleur entre septembre 1830 et mars 1831 et se concluant sur la célèbre Enquête sur la politique des deux ministères. Jamais signés, ces articles constituent la plus importante réflexion politique de Balzac et ont suscité, à ce titre, de très nombreuses études et commentaires. Chacune des Lettres est symboliquement adressée à un destinataire désigné uniquement par son initiale et sa ville. S'ils furent longtemps considérés comme fictifs, la plupart d'entre eux sont aujourd'hui identifiés, notamment parmi les proches de l'auteur et des personnalités politiques influentes. Ainsi, c'est à la suite de la Lettre XVI du 26 février 1831 qui lui est adressée, que son ami Samuel Henry Berthoud suggère à Balzac de se présenter dans sa commune. Enthousiasmé par ce projet, Balzac annonce officiellement sa candidature dans la Lettre du 15 mars puis, toujours sur les conseils de Berthoud, adresse la Lettre XIX du 29 mars à M. L*** à Cambrai, astéronyme derrière lequel doit se reconnaitre l'avocat Henry Leroy, dont Balzac espère obtenir un soutien cambraisien décisif. Les principaux espoirs politiques de Balzac se portent en effet sur Cambrai, dont il tente de séduire les élites tandis que Berthoud, rédacteur en chef de la Gazette de Cambrai, assure sa promotion et sa popularité auprès du peuple : « M. de Balzac n'est point seulement un écrivain célèbre, il est plus encore peut-être un publiciste profond. Il ne faut citer à l'appui de cette assertion que les Lettres sur Paris publiées dans Le voleur et dans lesquelles on remarque un jugement si sûr, une précision si lucide [...]. En outre, M. de Balzac s'occupe d'une publication de politique populaire qui doit contribuer puissamment à répandre, parmi les classes pauvres, l'instruction et mieux encore : les idées saines. » Ce faisant, le journaliste écrivait à son ami et champion : « Hâtez-vous [...] de venir à Cambrai. Nous ferons aller la grosse caisse et la Société d'émulation servira d'instrument. » C'est donc naturellement auprès d'Henry Leroy, président de cette influente Société d'émulation, que Balzac, devenu membre correspondant, déploie ses charmes. S'enquérant auprès de Berthoud de l'« espèce d'ouvrage politique [qui] pourrait appuyer [s]a candidature à Cambrai », Balzac choisit étrangement cette édition des Scènes de la vie privée, pourtant très peu « politique », qu'il offre à Henry Leroy par l'intermédiaire de son ami. En témoigne la lettre de remerciement que lui adresse l'avocat le 7 mai 1831 : « M. Berthoud m'a fait remettre de votre part deux volumes des Scènes de la vie privée. [...] je me félicite [...] d'en devoir la possession à son auteur, que tout le monde s'accorde à placer au rang des meilleurs écrivains ». Dès le 19 mars, Berthoud annonçait dans sa Gazette le don de deux ouvrages de Balzac à la Société d'émulation, les Scènes de la vie privée et Physiologie du mariage. La missive de Leroy semble modérer cette information puisqu'il ne remercie l'auteur que pour les Scènes. Balzac « électeur éligible » comme il se plaisait à se présenter durant sa campagne, n'obtiendra aucun siège et moins de deux mois après avoir annoncé publiquement ses ambitions, il se retire de la course. Malgré les éloges médiatiques de quelques inconditionnels partisans du grand homme dont Le Voleur, L'Avenir ou la Revue encyclopédique qui prédisent à l'auteur un grand avenir politique, ou encore de La Mode qui ne craint pas de le poser en successeur de Chateaubriand, « digne d'allier les deux titres d'écrivain et d'homme d'État » (30 avril 1831), l'éphémère parcours politique de Balzac se solda par un cuisant échec. Fustigeant à part égale les châtelains légitimistes dont il se réclame pourtant, et le peuple républicain - qu'il célèbre par ailleurs en affirmant connaître les attentes « de la partie solide de la nation, celle qui laboure, qui travaille » - Balzac se révèle un piètre politicien. Il n'abandonnera pourtant jamais ses espoirs et subira de nouveaux revers en 1832 et en 1848 car, comme le note Stefan Zweig dans sa biographie, le romancier s'est toujours trouvé « dans la politique pratique - comme dans les affaires - du mauvais côté ». Cependant, au-delà du constat d'échec, ce premier épisode détermine autant qu'il révèle la complexité de la relation de Balzac à la politique qui se caractérise par une subordination du politique au littéraire. Dans Balzac et le politique Boris Lyon-Caen relève l'évidente « polyphonie littéraire » des Lettres sur Paris, tandis que Pierre Laforgue soupçonne une élaboration très précoce (contemporaine de cette première aventure électorale) des Scènes de la vie politique qui ne paraîtront qu'en 1842 mais qui hantent l'œuvre depuis 1830. Enfin, Pierre Barbéris met l'accent sur l'importance déterminante sur l'œuvre balzacienne de la désillusion de 1831. Quelles que soient ses déclarations d'allégeance ultérieures, Balzac, dès 1831, ne peut plus être un acteur politique. En effet, l'exhaustive Comédie Humaine qu'il élabore, se nourrissant des échecs de l'homme, absorbera toutes les formes d'actions politiques et les velléités partisanes de son auteur. Ainsi de cet article de 1832 intitulé Du gouvernement moderne qui se mue en l'un de ses chefs d'œuvre : Le Médecin de campagne. Or, en choisissant ses Scènes de la vie privée comme « ouvrage politique » pour appuyer sa candidature auprès de Leroy, Balzac témoigne, dès l'aube de son engagement, de la prédominance de son œuvre littéraire sur ses aspirations personnelles. Nul doute que le destinataire ne pouvait rien lire de politique dans cette œuvre totalisante, car, comme l'écrira lui-même bientôt Balzac dans Louis Lambert : « La politique est une science sans principes arrêtés, sans fixité possible ; elle est le génie du moment, l'application constante de la force, suivant la nécessité du jour. » Pour découvrir dans ces Scènes un engagement politique plus vaste que ses ambitions électorales, il eut fallu que ce notable de Cambrai eut la perspicacité de Victor Hugo qui, aux funérailles de Balzac, déclarera : « À son insu, qu'il le veuille ou non, qu'il y consente ou non, l'auteur de cette œuvre immense et étrange est de la forte race des écrivains révolutionnaires. » Remarquable exemplaire, portant un précieux envoi autographe, dans une élégante reliure du temps.

        Alfred Dudley; or, The Australian Settlers

      London: Harvey & Darton, 1830. Small ink stain on front endpaper, else a very good copy, mild wear to extremities.. Duodecimo, with an engraved frontispiece and three plates;, in the original quarter red roan with marbled boards, First edition: considered the first novel of Australia. This is an exemplary copy of the very scarce first edition, bound with the advertisements in the publisher's roan-backed marbled boards of the first issue.In the novel, the genteel Dudleys are forced to emigrate, whereupon they purchase several hundred acres on the Hunters River, where they grow crops and tend their "pet Merinos" which they had brought from France. Much of the action centres on their interaction with some of the local tribesmen and women, and the eponymous Alfred becomes particularly close to a small boy called "Mickie", adopting him as a sort of voluntary personal valet and assistant. At one point Mickie acquires an officer's cast-off uniform, the whole ensemble geared for comic effect (as the accompanying plate makes clear). There is illness, and adversity, and a lively description of the dangers of a kangaroo hunt, but on the whole the European settlers are enchanted with New South Wales."This tale for juveniles is founded on the circumstances of a gentleman, with his highly-educated son, settling in Australia, and there for a long period cheerfully submitting to all the hardships and privations attendant on such a situation. The author's knowledge of Australian natural history and ethnology is chiefly drawn from The Present State of Australia, by Robert Dawson, late Chief Agent to the Australian Agricultural Company." (Ferguson).At one stage tentatively attributed to William Howitt, in his addenda Ferguson made a firmer attribution to Sarah Porter, on the basis of a trade list of Charles Knight. Ferguson also lists a frontispiece and two plates, for a total of three, rather than the four present here.

        Manual of Plain Directions for Planting and Cultivating Vineyards, and for Making Wine, in New South Wales

      Sydney: R. Mansfield for the Executors of R. Howe, 1830. Upper margin of title-page expertly repaired, moderate preliminary browning; early boards binding with spine renewed.. Small octavo, 96 [iv] pp.; contemporary manuscript note laid down on rear endpaper; very good in early papered boards, manuscript to front "Busby on Vine 1830" First edition, presentation copy: one of the rarer books by Busby, considered the founder of the Australian wine industry. The front endpaper is inscribed "Revd. Mr. Cartwright with the author's best regards, 26 June 1830" and this copy has, tipped in, a curious and quite significant early manuscript note on the wine-making method of Thomas Hobbes Scott at the Male Orphan School, which had been established by Macquarie in 1819 at Liverpool, and was where Busby himself first taught viticulture.James Busby (1801-1871) was probably the most important single figure in the early history of the Australian wine industry, and his property Kirkton on the Hunter River, which was taken over by Lindemans in 1914, is the oldest continually producing vineyard.Busby's three books on viticulture had an enormous effect on the early wine industry. He had published Treatise on the Culture of the Vine in 1825; it was largely a compilation from European writers, addressed to "the attention of the higher classes", but it prompted Governor Brisbane to encourage him in practical experimentation, the results of which appear in the present book. Here Busby attempted to convince "the more numerous portion of the community constituting the class of smaller settlers? that they, and each member of their families may with little trouble and scarcely any expense, enjoy their daily bottle of wine, the produce of their own farms?".This follow-up book has proved to be the rarer of the books on the market, perhaps because its practical nature made it more studied and used. It is also interesting to see that in his brief preface Busby takes some pains to compare the drinking of wine by the poorer peoples of southern Europe "with the unhappy effects produced by the consumption of spirits, or of malt liquors, among the same ranks": it seems plausible that this opening salvo was meant as a direct riposte to Atkinson's work on distilling of the previous year. Certainly Busby is keen to promote the ease and simplicity of life with a vineyard, and this book has the added attraction of many small asides relating to his successes, such as his evident pride that he recently opened one of his bottles at a dinner at the Male Orphan School, where it was pronounced to taste rather like a decent Burgundy.This copy has a wonderful colonial association, being presented by Busby to the Reverend Robert Cartwright (1771-1856), a philanthropic pastor based at Liverpool who was on friendly terms with Macquarie. Cartwright had been one of those encouraged to emigrate by Samuel Marsden, arriving in Sydney in 1810 and becoming an energetic and popular figure in the Hawkesbury before his transfer to Liverpool in 1819. It was Cartwright who accompanied Macquarie to Lake Bathurst in 1820, and who preached a famous sermon there. Apart from a brief unhappy stint at the fashionable St James in Sydney, Cartwright is remembered for a long and useful career in the remoter corners of New South Wales from Canberra to Albury. He had a lifelong concern for the Aborigines, and although many of his plans were met with polite indifference, he "had enunciated some important principles of Aboriginal welfare policy" (ADB). Busby is known to have been assiduous in making sure that copies of his book got into the hands of influential figures in New South Wales, particularly those who lived outside the city, and although Cartwright is not recorded as trying his hand as a vigneron, no doubt Busby hoped that it might yet be perused by interested settlers in the local vicar's library. This hope must explain the curious early manuscript note pasted in at the rear, which gives brief details of "Mr. Archdeacon Scott's instructions for the Vineyard & making wine at the M.O.S. here", followed by a brief but significant account of the process of making some 152 gallons of what must have been a rather robust local wine. This is significant because "Scott" refers to Thomas Hobbes Scott, who had worked as a wine-merchant in Bordeaux before travelling to New South Wales as the secretary to Thomas Bigge. Scott had been appointed Archdeacon of NSW (then part of the Calcutta diocese) in 1824. Indefatigable in his work, Scott took particular pains with his schools, and the initials "M.O.S." of course refer to the Male Orphan School.This connection with the M.O.S. is critical, as it was here that Busby himself had his first appointment in 1824, and where for three years he took charge of the school farm and taught viticulture, before he lost the position when the school came under the control of the trustees of the Church and School Corporation in 1827 (ADB). What this means is that this marvellous copy was at the epicentre of the fledgling Australian wine industry centred around the work of Busby, and itself provides a clue to the connection between Cartwright and Scott, and concrete evidence of Busby's book being used as a practical guide to winemaking in the colony (on Scott generally see R. T. Wyatt, 'A Wine Merchant in Gaiters: Thomas Hobbes Scott, Archdeacon of N.S.W., 1824-1829', Journal and Proceedings (Royal Australian Historical Society), 35: 3 & 35:4, 1949).

        Album van Buitenzorg. Een souvenir aan de residentie van Insulinde. Vier en twintig onveranderlijke lichtdrukken.Buitenzorg (Bogor, Indonesia), [ca. 1888]. Folio (43 x 33.5 cm). With photolithographed title-page and 24 numbered collotype reproductions of photographic views. Loose in the original publisher's portfolio: gold, black and blind-blocked red cloth over boards.

      Cat. KITLV, p. 14; NCC (1 copy); WorldCat (4 copies); Haks & Maris, pp. 162-163; not in Bastin & Brommer; KVK. A rare album of 24 excellent photographic views (18 x 23.5 cm) of the palace and botanical garden of the governor-general of the Dutch East Indies, as well as architectural and topographic views in and around the city of Buitenzorg, Java (now Bogor, Indonesia). The first eleven plates cover the governor's palace and gardens, with lakes, roads, fountains, waterlilies and a great variety of trees, many with native Indonesians in the background adding to the atmosphere and giving an indication of the scale. The last thirteen plates show various buildings (including the train station), roads, mountains (including a smoking volcano), forests, rivers, villages and farms in and around the city of Buitenzorg, many with natives engaged in various activities. One shows shops and people in the Chinese quarter, and one shows a European with (apparently) his native workers. The attractive title-page, with its border and decorative initial letter, may have been executed by Lang himself. A letterpress key to the plates, in Dutch and French, identifies each view in a few words.The German-born Carl Lang (1830-1906) went to Indonesia in the 1860s, where he made his name as photographer and lithographic artist. He obtained government posts as lithographer of the Topographic Bureau in Jakarta and draughtsman of the Botanical Garden in Buitenzorg. He moved to the Netherlands shortly before his death.In very good condition, with only a couple very minor blemishes in the views. The portfolio also very good, with the spine slightly worn. A rare and fascinating set of photographic Indonesian views.

      Zus. 30 S., 8 bis 4. Moy de Sons trat nach Abschluß seiner Studien in Landshut, Würzburg u. Erlangen als Auditor ins bayer. Kriegsministerium in München ein. Anschließend lehrte er in München als Privatdozent und übte hier seit 1830 eine Advokatur aus. 1832 erhielt er eine Professur für Staatsrecht, Bundesstaatsrecht und Völkerrecht in Würzburg und kehrte 1837 als Professor für Staatsrecht nach München zurück. Hier vollendete er Das Eherecht der Christen in der morgenländischen und abendländischen Kirche bis zur Zeit Karls des Großen aus den Quellen dargestellt (1838, Neudruck 1970), das als seine bedeutendste kirchenrechtliche Arbeit gilt (Schulte). Bald folgte das Lehrbuch des bayerischen Staatsrechts (4 Bde., 1840-46). In München war Moy de Sons dem Görres-Kreis beigetreten. Im Zusammenhang mit der Lola-Montez-Affäre verlor er 1847 die Professur, ging nach Innsbruck, leitete seit 1849 die Tiroler Zeitung und erhielt die Lehrkanzel für Kirchenrecht und Deutsche Reichs- und Rechtsgeschichte. Nach Julius Fickers Übertritt von der Philosophischen in die Juristenfakultät (1863) übernahm dieser die Deutsche Rechtsgeschichte, während Moy de Sons in den letzten Jahren seiner Lehrtätigkeit das Kirchenrecht betreute. Er schrieb die Grundlinien einer Philosophie des Rechts vom katholischen Standpunkt (2 Bde., 1854-57) und gründete 1857 das Archiv für katholisches Kirchenrecht (1857), das noch heute besteht. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr.

      Zus. 5 S., 8. Ab 1830 zog Paris zahlreiche Einwanderer an, die sich vor allem im Osten der Stadt, in den Vierteln um den Canal Saint-Martin und in der Nähe des damaligen Vorortes La Villette niederließen. Dort waren sehr viele Betriebe entstanden, die Arbeitskräfte benötigten. In den 1840er Jahren zählte man 80.000 bis 100.000 deutsche Handwerker und Arbeiter, die in Paris lebten. Um diese Gemeinde seelsorgerisch zu betreuen, gründete der Jesuitenpater Jean-Joseph Chable eine Mission, die als Versammlungsraum zunächst eine Fabrikhalle nutzte. Später wurde eine Kapelle aus Holz errichtet und 1865/66 baute der Architekt Douillard für die aus Deutschland eingewanderten Arbeiter die Kapelle Saint-Joseph-des-Allemands. Bereits 1851 hatte die deutsche Jesuitenmission das Gelände zwischen der Rue Lafayette und dem Quai de Valmy am Canal Saint-Martin erworben. Unterstützt wurde der Bau der Kirche vom österreichischen Kaiser Franz Joseph I. und durch Spenden aus Deutschland und Luxemburg. 1882 musste die Mission aus Geldmangel einen Teil des Grundstücks verkaufen und es wurde ein Wohnhaus vor die Kirche gebaut, sodass die Kirche seitdem nur durch eine Passage von der Rue Lafayette aus zu erreichen ist [...] (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878).

        Das farbige Ornament. Stilisirte Blatt-und Blüthenformen mit Beispielen über deren Verwendung für den Schulzeichenunterricht. 24 Blätter in monochromem und polychromem Farbendruck mit einer kurzen Farbenlehre. Zürich, Orell Füssli & Co., 1880. 4to. With 24 numbered chromolithographed plates (each printed in 2 to 6 colours). Contemporary red half morocco.

      Cf. GVK (1 copy of 3rd impression); WorldCat (4 copies of 2nd and/or 3rd impression, incl. the copy in GVK); not in Berlin Kat. Extremely rare first impression of the first and only edition of 24 colour-printed plates showing ornamental designs using stylized leaves and flowers. Some of the ornamentation is almost Art Nouveau avant la lettre and all plates are printed entirely with areas of solid colour (with 2 to 6 colours in each plate). The work was meant for education and contains a short introduction covering colour theory. The designs and text were made by professor Ulrich Schoop (1830-1911), who was the author of a dozen other educational works covering the art of drawing, ornamentation and perspective.Text leaves slightly browned in the margins, primarily along the edges, and some faint browning in the head margin of the first few plates; spine slightly rubbed near the edges and with small cracks in the front joint. Very good copy of a rare and interesting work on colour ornament.

        American conchology or descriptions of the shells of North America illustrated by coloured figures from original drawings executed from nature.

      New Harmony, IN, Privately published (printed at The School Press, and the M Press), 1830-1837. 8vo (21.5 x 13.3 cm). Seven parts in two, containing part VII. Later half calf with the gilt lettered label on the spine and the contemporary boards preserved (parts I-VI) and original printed wrappers (part VII; 24.4 x 15.2 cm).l Very rare complete set of the work as published by Say, with the additional part issued by Conrad after Say's untimely death. It contains 68 fine lithographic plates that are beautifully hand-coloured - each with accompanying explanatory text. Most of the drawing and colouring is by Lucy Say and ranks among the best ever done, being far superior to that of many contemporary natural history illustrations in detail and subtlety. Part VII (published after Say's death and edited by the American conchologist Timothy Conrad), with the original front wrapper, all the text, and the hand-coloured plates. "There was a more honourable motive behind the production of Thomas Say's American conchology. Forsaking the world of learning, to which he had contributed significantly, Say adopted a simple lifestyle on the banks of the Wabash in Indiana. He threw in his lot with a small band of idealistic settlers who had gathered there to work together and live in peace, their little township being optimistically named New Harmony. He became business manager to the community and set up a hand printing press. Between 1830 and 1834, when he died, he produced the seven parts comprising his American conchology, his wife Lucy helping to produce the illustrations and supervising their colouring. ... Say's book laid the foundation of our knowledge of American molluscs. Considering its author worked in a wilderness with primitive equipment it is a minor miracle that the book was issued at all." (Peter Dance). Perforated stamp on title page leaf, library labels on front pastedown and front flyleaf, text and plates unmarked. Some age-toning and offsetting to a few plates. In all a very good, complete copy. Dance, Shell Collecting, p. 142; Nissen ZBI 3614.

      Texten tryckt i Upsala hos Palmblad & C. 1830. Blue / grey printed wrapper + 18 uncoloured plates + 18 text leaves. 6:o. Text 29 x 17 cm (uncut). Plates 25 x 15,5 cm. Wrapper 24 x 15 cm. A couple of minor spots on the back of the wrapper, slight browning to the edges of some of the text leaves, a couple of insignificant spots. A short tear in the margin of the last text leaf. Some offsetting on the text leaves from the facing text leaf (which is quite normal). These are just minor objections, this copy is in fantastic condition. It has that feeling of crispy freshness. Here we have the first third of volume 11 of Svensk Botanik, including the hardly ever seen wrapper. Volume 11 is the never finished last volume of the work containing 56 plates instead of 72 as in each of the first 10 volumes. It is considered to be very rare and is never found as a complete separate volume. Many sets of the work contain 10 volumes only. The few that have all 11 volumes cost considerably more. It can be argued that volume 11 constitutes about half the value of the work, even though the first 10 volumes have 720 plates. The only feasible way to complete a 10 volume set with volume 11 is to collect bits and pieces that do surface on the market from time to time. This is such an example. A rare find, especially in the fantastic condition we have here. The plates and text leaves are numbered 721 to 738.

        Vases etrusques de Lucien Bonaparte Prince de Canino. 1-2 Livraison. [Atlas].

      [Viterbo, C. Tosoni], 1830. Elephant folio (76.0 x 53.5 cm). Ten unnumbered chromolithographed and hand-coloured plates. Original portfolio (79.0 x 55.5 cm); boards with printed title mounted.l The magnificent, complete atlas of this exceedingly rare work. While in self-imposed exile in the Papal State, the younger brother of Napoléon Bonaparte spent considerable time excavating Etruscan tombs located on and near his estate near the ancient city of Vulci. This brought a wealth of Etruscan and Greek objects to light: over 3,000 vases on Bonaparte's estate alone. The most impressive ones are figured in this atlas, with illustrations by the Italian architect and designer, Giuseppe Valadier (1762-1839). These objects were also described in a text volume titled "Muséum Etrusque de Lucien Bonaparte Prince de Canino. Fouilles de 1828 à 1829. Vases peints avec inscriptions", which is not present. "Bonaparte himself had made registrations of the ?nds, the vases being numbered sequentially as they appeared from the ground, with detailed descriptions handed in to the authorities at the papal chair... his approach was in fact very innovative at the time" (Nørskov, "The Affairs of Lucien Bonaparte and the Impact on the Study of Greek Vases"). The text volume is rare, but this atlas is excessively rare. Brunet records only the first livraison: "Il ná paru de cet ouvrage qu[e] ... 5 planches lithogr. coloriées". The plates should be numbered by hand; apparently, at the time of printing it was not yet decided how many plates were to be issued. These ten plates, however, are all that were published. The black and reddish colours seem to have been printed, whereas the whites are added by hand. No auction records found by us in the last 50 years and we could only trace one copy avaialble in the Bibliothèque nationale de France. Light spotting throughout. Portfolio and plate edges showing the usual wear for a work this old, spine and corners with later cloth. In all a very good, complete atlas. Brunet 1, p. 1087.

      co' caratteri di F. Didot, 1830. Tre volumi legati in uno di cm. di cm. 24,5, pp. (4) xviii, 259 (1); (4) 239 (1); (4) 244. Solida legatura di poco posteriore in mezza percallina rossa con piccole punte, dorso liscio con titoli e filetti in oro. Qualche leggera ed uniforme brunitura, peraltro esemplare genuino e marginoso. Le copie censite riportano in alcuni casi la presenza di due ritratti (Dante e Tasso); il nostro esemplare non li contiene. Le bibliografie non sono concordi ed è probabile che i due ritratti siano stati inseriti solo in alcune copie. Pregevole e rara edizione, elegantemente impressa in soli 171 esemplari su carta distinta. Cfr. Mambelli, 167 (senza citare i ritratti); Raccolta Mackenzie (p. 139, senza citare i ritratti); non in Chambers.

        Heath Blossoms: Or, Poems written in Obscurity and Seclusion ? With a Memoir of the Author ?

      and Sold by Baldwin and Cradock ? Deck, Shalders, Hunt and Piper, Ipswich; Deck, Bury; Hardacre, Hadleigh; Loder, Woodbridge; and Smith, Edinburgh. [c. 1830]., Printed by W. Hill, Ballingdon - First edition, very scarce, of this provincially-printed collection of poems, prefixed with a detailed account of the author's financial distress.In her sobering Introduction, Hart writes: 'The dread of being overtaken by absolute penury, has induced the author of the following poems, to offer them to the public ? and most of them partaking of the colour of her own dark and melancholy fate, it is necessary they should be prefaced with a short memoir of herself'. What follows is a curious narrative, punctuated with lengthy quotations from Hart's correspondence with various financial institutions and private bodies. This demonstrates that Hart's was a difficult life beset with financial woes, even before she became involved with a husband who misrepresented his estate, his means, and his debts. The memoir ends with copied correspondence between Hart and her husband's creditors, whom she feels have treated her unjustly by taking her savings to make good on his arrears. She closes with a hope that 'this humble volume fall into the hand of some friend to the oppressed, who will investigate the case, and endeavour to redress the injury!' We may never know the outcome of this curious case, but perhaps inevitably the poems carry the tone of oppression and dismay, including 'Written in Illness, and a Prospect of Death', 'Written during my Son's Illness' and 'The Tear'. The Suffolk context-which is established with the attractive frontispiece of Lavenham Church-endures in a poem named for that building, 'On Visiting Brenteleigh Hall' and 'Lines on James Reed, Esq., of Ipswich'. 8vo (220 x 138 mm), pp. xxvii, [2], 30-144, lithographed frontispiece of Lavenham Church; frontispiece loose but holding, tissue-guard preserved but a little offsetting from title; untrimmed in publisher's paper-backed boards, cloth spine with printed paper label; paper missing from upper board, spine sunned, corners bumped; contemporary ownership inscription. [Johnson, Provincial Poetry 241; Jackson p. 552; Jackson, Women p. 147 (Hart 1 (a)).

This work has been called the most important scientific book ever. A stunning claim, but certainly Charles Lyell's Principles of Geology, published in 1830, shook prevailing views of how Earth had been formed. His book was an attack on the common belief among geologists and other Christians that unique catastrophes or supernatural events -- such as Noah's flood -- shaped Earth's surface. Lyell argued that the formation of Earth's crust took place through countless smaller changes occurring over long periods of time, all according to known natural laws. His proposal was that the forces shaping the planet have operated continuously throughout its history. He also wrongly assumed that these causes must have acted only with the same intensities now observed, which would rule out asteroid impacts and the like. Darwin read Lyell's landmark text while on the Voyage of the Beagle, and was much inspired by it. His own experiences during the voyage backed up Lyell's theories of how the shifting crust of the Earth was one of these long-acting, gradual, shaping forces. See Printing and the Mind of Man, page 208, Chapter on The Theory of Evolution, No. 344. William Lonsdale (1794-1871) became a serious geologist and palaeontologist after a career in the army which ended in 1829. He wrote several papers on fossiles and won the Wollaston medal in 1846 for his research on the various kinds of fossil corals.
