        The British Flora; comprising the Phaenogamous or Flowering Plants and the Ferns ... [Bound with:] Characters of Genera, Extracted from the British Flora

      London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown & Green, 1830. 2 volumes in one, 8vo. (8 x 4 3/4 inches). iii-x, 480; 64pp. [Bound with:] An 8pp. contemporary manuscript being extracts from Hooker's Muscologia Britannica. Contemporary smooth tan calf, a bit scuffed.First edition of Hooker's British Flora, bound with a scarce separately-printed related work.First published here in 1830, Hooker's British Flora would go through eight editions by 1860. "The object which the Author proposed to himself, in preparing a new Flora of the British Empire, was a twofold nature" 1stly, to provide the young Student with a description of our native plants, arranged according to the simplest method; and 2dly, to afford to the more experienced Botanist, a manual, that should be useful in the field as well as in the closet" (Introduction). The second work bound in is particularly uncommon, with only one other example cited in OCLC.The manuscript, possibly in Hooker's hand, extracts descriptions relating to the genera Hepaticae from Hooker's Muscologia Britannica, and would seem to be related to his 1844 continuation of British Flora concerning cryptogamia.Stafleu & Cowan TL-2 3000.

        The Canterbury Tales of Chaucer; with an Essay on his Language and Versification, an Introductory Discourse, Notes, and a Glossary

      London: William Pickering, 1830. Half-Calf. Fine. Second Pickering edition, edited by Thomas Tyrwhitt (1730–86). Five octavo volumes (complete): [4],ccxxii,122; [4],354; [4],290; [4],348; viii,296pp, with two engraved plates, of the Canterbury pilgrimage and a portrait of Chaucer. Period forest-green half-calf, marbled paper-covered boards, spines in five compartments between raised bands with titles and volume numbers in gilt, top edges gilt, fore- and bottom edges untrimmed, marbled end papers. An excellent set, the bindings tight, the pages clean, bright and virtually free of foxing. A number of marginal, mostly two-word annotations in a very neat hand, in pencil (easily erased without a trace but of pedagogic value, particularly pointing out cases in which notes are to be referred to), in vols. I-III. Tyrwhitt's fame rests chiefly upon his edition of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, published in five volumes between 1775 and 1778. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, "Chaucer’s reputation had suffered because the principles on which his verse depends were no longer understood; it was Tyrwhitt who pointed out [expounded here at length in the Glossary in Volume 5] that final e’s (by his time mute) ought to be pronounced as separate syllables and that the accent of a word was often placed in the French manner (e.g., virtúe, not vírtue)." His scholarship is still held in high regard, and this edition of The Canterbury Tales is considered among the finest ever published. Note: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

        An earnest appeal to the weavers of Norwich, on the passing events of the present awful crisis.

      Norwich: printed by W. Wilkin Jan. 22 1830 - 12mo., caption title, 12pp., in a fine late 19th century maroon half roan over marbled boards, spine gilt lettered. A fine copy. [bound with], GREEVES, J.W.> A reply to Mr. Geary's appeal to the weavers of Norwich.> Norwich: printed by Jarrold and Son [Feb. 10] 1830. First editions of each pamphlet. The 'present awful crisis' refers to the disastrous loss of trade by the Norwich weavers primarily due to competition from other parts of the country, like Yorkshire, which were able to produce similar fabrics more cheaply. William Geary warns the weavers that combinations (i.e. trades unions) should never 'by any stretch of possibility, be made to promote their aim in regard to a PERMANENT INCREASE OF WAGES' [p.6]. He strongly urges the weavers to return to work in spite of their obvious suffering. J.W. Greeves answers with a full account of the trials and tribulations of the Norwich weavers since about 1820. He advises the weavers to consider 'co-operation', not confrontation. This would surely 'save them until. the period shall arrive when they must be reinstated to their long lost just and lawful rights as freeborn Englishmen' [p.23]. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Small octavo, pp. [i-v] vi-vii [viii] [1] 2-312, inserted frontispiece and engraved title leaf, original decorated brown cloth, front and rear panels stamped in blind, spine panel stamped in gold, a.e.g., yellow coated endpapers. First edition? Engraved half-title has additional publication details, "London, Charles Daly, 19, Red Lion Square," which may indicate an earlier edition by Daly. This very popular collection of Romantic and Gothic tales does not appear to have been published prior to 1830 and the single institution recorded as having a copy of this Richardson edition misdates it 1890. This edition most likely was published in the mid to late 1830s or very early 1840s. This anonymous anthology collects nineteen stories, including "The Black Spider," "The Spectre Barber" by Musaeus and "Peter Schlemihl" by Adalbert von Chamisso. This collection was reprinted from the same plates with additional illustrations by William Milner of Halifax in 1844 as TRADITIONS AND LEGENDS OF THE ELF, THE FAIRY, AND THE GNOME and later as TALES OF FAIRY LAND; OR, LEGENDS OF THE OLDEN TIME. Not in Bleiler (1948; 1978), Reginald (1979; 1992) or Locke, Spectrum I-III. Not in Block, Sadleir or Wolff. 10 mm split in cloth at lower edge of front cover, corner tips just a bit soft, a very good copy. COPAC reports one copy only, at Chetham's Library.

        Recherches anatomico-pathologiques sur l'encéphale et ses dépendances

      1830 - Paris, chez Béchet jeune, 1830-1834, in-8, , , Nouvelle édition, augmentée, en trois volumes ; les précédentes éditions ont paru en 2 volumes. Le volume 3 est à la date de 1834. Lallemand, (1790-1853, chirurgien et professeur à la faculté de Montpellier), fit paraitre, sous forme épistolaire, entre 1820 et 1834, une série d'observations cliniques et de compte-rendus pathologiques à propos de la nature des maladies infectueuses de l'encéphale. Rejetant les imprécisions de la phrénologie et la relativité de la vivisection, il décide d'observer, dans un premier temps, les comportements externes et internes des personnes malades du sytème nerveux, puis de s'attacher aux désordes anatomico-pathologiques dont ils sont les témoins afin de dresser des constats plus justes sur les maladies de l'encéphale. En cela, il redonne un élan nouveau à la physiologie puisqu'en classant les affections cérébrales d'aprés les altérations pathologiques et non seulement d'après les symptômes ou "les phénomènes extérieurs", il est à l'origine d'une méthode sûre et fiable basée sur l'observation systématique, répétée et particulière.

        Wintergezicht - Frédéric Théodore Lix.

      WINTERVERMAAKTekening met potlood, pen en waterverf van de hand van Fr?d?ric Th?odore Lix (1830-1897). Gesigneerd ?F. Lix?? linksonder. Afm.: 15 x 19 cm.Lix staat bekend om zijn boekillustraties en tekende voor verschillende Franse tijdschriften zoals Le Magazin Pittoresque en L?Illustration. Hij werd beloond met een 3e prijs op de Parijse Salon van 1880 en kreeg een bronzen medaille voor zijn werk tijdens de wereldtentoonstelling van 1889.In zijn Camera Obscura (1840) verhaalt Hildebrand over sneeuwpret: ?Daar stijgt de vrolijkheid ten top en het kleine grut glijdt, scharrelt, en zwiert, en draait door elkander, en valt op een hoop en poeiert elkaar met sneeuw".Dichter en tijdgenoot J.P. Heije zong:Sneeuw bedekt de landen, Wascht de kille handen Dat ze tintlend branden, Kneedt den sneeuwbal vast; Krachtig de arm geheven: Ha! Dat is een leven, Dat aan jongens past!Op de voorstelling van Lix voeren kameraadjes een compleet sneeuwballengevecht uit. Geen treffender indruk van zo?n speelse, maar met vurigheid gestreden confrontatie dan deze tekening, waar zelfs tromgeroffel niet ontbreekt en de overwinnaars de vlag hijsen.Prijs: ?1.250,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

        [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.
