        Small archive, comprising correspondence with Humboldt regarding barometric pressure on the Uranie voyage.

      Paris: circa, 1830. Archive of manuscripts, including drafts, notes and various tables, most with the Archives de Laage stamp, several of the manuscripts in Freycinet's hand, other in different hands but all with evidence of Freycinet's careful attention (and most including his personal annotations); see catalogue note for detail. Louis de Freycinet's personal archive of material relating to his correspondence with Alexander von Humboldt on the question of the effect of barometric pressure on observations made during the Uranie voyage. It is evidence of the exchange of information between the eminent mariner and one of the prominent figures of nineteenth century Continental science.This group of 11 manuscripts, ranging from brief notes right through to substantial sets of tables of observations, gives an insight into the technical aspects of maritime observations with which Freycinet was obsessed throughout his life, and particularly around 1830 when he was working closely with the French Ministry of the Marine. Much of the material relates to drafts and extracts of his correspondence with Humboldt, who had settled in Berlin in 1827 after a stint in Paris when he clearly became acquainted with Freycinet. It was during this time that Humboldt began his serious work on subjects like the question of the Earth's magnetism and its effects, subjects dear to the heart of Freycinet, and which led to an interesting although now largely scattered correspondence between the two men (making these notes and drafts a particularly interesting discovery).A calendar of the manuscripts:1. 'Extrait d'une lettre de Mr. de Humboldt'. Single sheet, 285 x 205 mm., calculations. Unknown hand with Freycinet notes. On the observations of Erman (particularly as regards Kamchatka).2. 'Extrait d'une le lettre de Mr. Alexandre de Humboldt à Mr. Louis de Freycinet'. One page manuscript, 300 x 210 mm., unknown hand with Freycinet notes. Second version of previous letter.3. 'Influence de longitudes et de latitudes sue les hauteurs du baromètre'. Two page manuscript, 399 x 210 mm. Detailed listing of variations as measured on board the Uranie.4. 'Résume des observations barométriques... '. Folding table, 390 x 385 mm., calculations in Freycinet's hand, includes small tipped on "nota bene". Comparing the results of the Uranie voyage with those of Captain Beechey (presumably from the published account of Beechey, 1831).5. 'Réponse de Mr. de Freycinet à Mr. de Humboldt'. Single page manuscript, 285 x 210 mm. Sheet with 7 numbered sets of measurements, relating to the previous table.6. 'Corrections des hauteurs des baromètres de l'Uranie... '. Single page manuscript, 300 x 210 mm. Technical notes on comparisons of the "Fortin" barometer with another on board, including one observation made in Port Jackson.7. 'Questions adressées par Mr. de Humboldt à Mr. de Freycinet' and 'Réponse'. Four page manuscript, 290 x 210 mm. Including extract of Humboldt's letter (24 February 1827) and draft of Freycinet's response (28 February 1827), the latter with Freycinet's personal corrections. Highly detailed questions relating to the Uranie.8. 'Lettre adressée par Mr. de Humboldt... la temperature de la mer'. Two page manuscript, 300 x 210 mm. Includes a partial secretarial draft of Freycinet's reply, firmly crossed through.9. 'Réponse à la lettre précédente... '. Two page manuscript, 300 x 210 mm. Freycinet's draft secretarial reply to the previous.10. 'Par les obsons. partielle'. Two pages pinned together, 290 x 210 mm., some water damage. With notes in Freycinet's hand, and calculations relating to the Uranie voyage: includes observations at Good Hope, in the Sea of Japan, and near Norfolk Island.11. 'Comparaisons de la temperature de la Mer... '. 12 pp. booklet with 6 pp. of manuscript tables, detailed measurements throughout, some corrections chiefly to main initial notes. A series of detailed tables measuring the temperature of the sea throughout the Uranie voyage, and particularly noting unusual variations. One series of observations, for example, was made in the vicinity of Hawaii, another series in the Indian Ocean "entre le Cap. De B.S. et la N. Hollande... " A little browning of the bottom edge, very good condition overall.

        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. Small octavo, woodblock text illustrations, early owner's manuscript notes; bound without the half-title in full calf, gilt. First edition of this rare and influential book marking the beginnings of the Australian wine industry, of which Busby is generally considered to have been the founder. James Busby (1801-1871) was probably the most important single figure in the early history of Australian viticulture, 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 making wine were hugely influential. He had published Treatise on the Culture of the Vine in 1825; largely a compilation from European writers, addressed to "the attention of the higher classes", it prompted Governor Brisbane to encourage him in practical experimentation, the results of which appear in the present book. In this work 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 book has proved to be the rarer of Busby's publications 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". 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.The interesting manuscript notes on page 75 are specific instructions for the correct temperature to use in wine fermentation. Provenance: With manuscript notes by an unidentified early owner. Some age marks, dedication leaf clipped at top corner, otherwise good.

        A Form of Prayer with Thanksgiving ... [bound with] A Charge, Delivered to the Clergy of the Archdeaconry of New South Wales

      Sydney: R. Mansfield, 1829 &, 1830. Octavo, two works bound together, neat repair to the gutter of the title-page of the first, the second work with a few spots; one set of the original plain blue wrappers bound in at rear;, in crushed blue morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe, gilt. Two very rare early Mansfield printings related to the Church in New South Wales, the first a humble petition on the fierce drought of the late 1820s, the second the first major address of William Grant Broughton, later the first Bishop of Australia.The Gazette under Robert Howe had produced the first Church of England hymn-book printed in Australia in 1828 and the first small work here is an important and topical companion, A Form of Prayer with Thanksgiving, to be used on Thursday, November 12, 1829... (Sydney, R. Mansfield, for the executors of R. Howe, 1829). As the title continues, this form of service was to be used in all the churches and chapels of New South Wales, 'in acknowledgment of the Mercy of Almighty God, in putting an end to the late Severe Drought, and in averting His threatened judgments from this Colony... '. The work was issued by command of Governor Darling himself, who had also been instrumental in sending out Charles Sturt, whose explorations were in no small part meant to provide relief from the drought that gripped the colony from 1826-29. In these difficult years Lake George completely receded and the Darling River stopped flowing, so it is little wonder that Darling had agreed to try and seek a heavenly intercession.The second work is Broughton's A Charge, delivered to the Clergy of the Archdeaconry of New South Wales, at the Primary Visitation... (Sydney, R. Mansfield, for the executors of R. Howe, 1830). This work is an interesting contribution to the religious disputes of the time, with Broughton giving a detailed and deeply personal account of the duties of the clergy in the colony. The original speech was delivered on 3 December 1829, less than two months after he had succeeded the incumbent Archdeacon, Thomas Hobbes Scott (the latter had become associated with Darling and was thus subject to relentless attacks by the Australian and the Monitor). It was in this address that Broughton sketched out his policy: 'The church would have a paternal concern for convicts, Aboriginals and settlers in the new areas, and a special responsibility for the organization and control of education with the financial and official backing of the state, for it was above all the national church, established in law, charged with the care of all subjects of the Crown, apostolic in its doctrine and government' (ADB). Very good.

        Alfred Dudley; or, The Australian Settlers.

      London: Harvey & Darton, 1830. 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. Small ink stain on front endpaper, else a very good copy, mild wear to extremities.

        The Present State of Australia; a Description of the Country, its Advantages and Prospects, with reference to Emigration: and a particular account of the manners, customs, and conditions of its aboriginal inhabitants.

      London: Smith, Elder and Co. 1830. Octavo, in half red morocco by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. A fine copy of an influential account of the Australian colonies, and one of the most important early works devoted to the Aborigines of New South Wales.Dawson, a friend of John Macarthur Jnr., was appointed the Chief Agent of the Australian Agricultural Company in 1825, and over the following three years led various expeditions in remote New South Wales. In this account of his travels he discusses agricultural and pastoral activity throughout the continent and gives a good description of Moreton Bay in its earliest years. However, while written in the style of an emigration guide, Dawson's real interest is quite clearly in the Aboriginal tribesmen and women he had met during his extensive inland travels, and his work is an exceptional and very early eyewitness account of the Aborigines of Sydney, Newcastle, and most particularly Port Stephens.

        The Beacon, Exmouth.

      circa 1830. Lithograph, 150 x 245 mm., Very rare indeed: an example of the work being done by Conrad Martens before he sailed on the Beagle. Any art relating to this early part of his career is most uncommon.Conrad Martens (1801-1878), perhaps the best known of all colonial artists, arrived in Sydney in 1835 after working his way around the world, including a year's appointment as artist on the hydrographical survey voyage of the Beagle, during which his shipmate was Charles Darwin. Martens had been born in London in 1801 but moved with his family to Exmouth in Devon in 1822. The view shows the temple by the shore at the Beacon, in the centre of Exmouth. This is thought to be the second earliest print after any work by Martens: the actual lithograph was drawn on stone "F. Martens", thought to be Frederick Martens, a German-born engraver in aquatint and likely a relative of Conrad. Michael Organ, who has made a study of Martens, records in his "Conrad Martens' Prints" (online) that the Dixson library holds an impression of this view with the imprint "Printed by Engelmann, Graf, Coindet & Co." which is not present on this example. Hordern House has never before handled a copy of this lithograph by Martens, an outstanding colonial artist. Very good.

        The Little Enquirer. Or, Instructive Conversations for Children from Five to Six

      London: Harvey and Darton, 1830. 16mo, vii 76pp, 4 pp advertisements, engraved frontispiece, folding map of the hemispheres, and five other engraved plates, all hand coloured; attractive original marbled boards rebacked with green sheep, gilt title, Rare: an attractive item of juvenile literature with reference to New Holland and including an intriguing plate and description of the wombat, ultimately derived from David Collins' Account of the English Colony, as well as a charming folding double-hemisphere map with an odd shaped New Holland and Botany Bay.Written as a series of conversations between mother and child, the work provides a remarkable perspective of the colony at the time: 'people who steal or do wicked things in this country [England], are sometimes sent there, away from all their friends, as a punishment, and there they are made to work hard... '. The attractive hand-coloured plate depicting a wombat is another highlight. A section of the accompanying text reads:'I have here a drawing for you, of a curious animal called a wombat, which was discovered in an island close to New Holland. It is about the size of a large dog.''What an ugly looking animal! How was it caught?''Why, the man who saw it ran after it, and as it does not run very fast he soon caught it, and lifting it up laid it upon it back across his arm, like a little child.'Like the plate, the spurious assumption that the wombat is a slow beast also derives from the text of Collins' work: rather, the wombat is said to reach speeds of around 40 km/h, near enough to the peak speed of Usain Bolt.Quaker publishers William Darton and Joseph Harvey were well known for juvenile literature, a genre which grew greatly in the first half of the twentieth century. They also published anti-slavery literature and the present volume reflects their abolitionist sympathies: 'It signifies very little what our faces are, if we are good, and do our duty.'Copies of this work are uncommon. Despite having some Australian content and interest, it was not known to Ferguson, although a copy is now recorded in the Mitchell Library. A little scuffed but very good.

        Globe Artificiel et Mécanique a l'Usage du Petit Geographe...

      Paris: circa, 1830. A collapsible engraved and handcoloured globe in six gores (170 mm. tall); protected by the original lithographed portfolio, 8 folding pages of text; with loose double-sided engraved and hand-coloured card 'Mécanisme du Glode Artificiel'; a very good and attractive example. Charming collapsible globe with accompanying booklet by the Frenchman Augustin Legrand.Legrand was active in the 1820s and 1830s and made delightful children's books, educational globes and friezes. He published any number of these educational books and novelties, the earliest dating from around 1800. His work is known for its graceful composition, as can be seen in his Planisphere suivant la projection de Mercator (circa 1830) now held in the National Library.These fragile globes are rare survivals, but were a popular educational toy of the period. The mapping of the globe is surprisingly accurate, with the various zones and also the ecliptic marked. Off the coast of New Zealand is marked the antipodes of Paris, and the map of "Nouvelle Hollande" is scattered with the older Dutch place names, but also "Botany Bay" and the unusual "T. de Grant" for the area that was initially called in French the Terre Napoleon after the territorial claims made in the wake of the Baudin voyage.The accompanying folding booklet contains a good description of the workings of "Le Globe artificial", including an overview of the basic components of geography (such as the various zones, the zodiac, and so on). There is also a five-page "Description de la Terre", with notes on Asia, Africa, Europe, America and Oceania ('celle-ci est accompagnée d'une quantité d'îles que l'on désigne sous le nom d'Océanie'). The text concludes with some spruiking for other relevant titles available at the publishers. There is also a separate hand-coloured card with, on one side, diagrams and a description of the "Mécanisme du Globe artificiel", and on the other, of the "Zodiaque écliptique." Some browning and becoming frayed along the fold of the portfolio, inoffensive library stamp to interior of one of the gores.

        Description of a View of the Town of Sydney, New South Wales; the Harbour of Port Jackson, and surrounding country; now exhibiting in the Panorama, Leicester-Square. Painted by the Proprietor, Robert Burford.

      London: J. and C. Adlard, 1830. Octavo pamphlet of 12pp., with folding lithograph measuring 275 x 395 mm., fine in recent grey paper boards. Rare and historically important depiction of Sydney Town.This booklet describes and illustrates the Sydney Town view exhibited in London at Robert Burford's panorama in the Strand. It includes a lithograph of the panorama as a line drawing in two courses, with accompanying text specifically describing buildings and points of interest (including places of Aboriginal significance). The panorama is based on original landscape watercolours by Augustus Earle.In February 1827 Earle painted a series of panoramic watercolours of Sydney from Palmer's Hill, which he then dispatched to Robert Burford in London. In this booklet, Burford notes how Earle's studies were enriched with commentary by Henry Dumaresq, formerly private secretary to Governor Darling, who had returned to England during 1827: 'The present Panorama was taken from the highest part of the government domain, the drawings were made by Mr. Earle, under the inspection of Lieutenant Colonel Dumaresq, by whom they were brought to England, and to whom R. Burford takes this opportunity of making his acknowledgements for the polite attention he has obtained from him in the progress of the painting. The view from this place is bold, varied and beautiful... 'Earle was an important figure in colonial Australian landscape art and the development of lithographic printing in the colony, as noted in Australian Rare Books: 'Earle's importance in the history of Australian art and in the development of lithographic art in Australia is such that every serious collection should have some example of his work'. Given the panorama no longer survives, and was important in disseminating information about New South Wales to the public in England, this booklet with its lithographic plate is considerable historical interest.The panorama opened in the Strand and later moved to improved premises at Leicester Square. Naturally illuminated with a large skylight, the panorama was open during daylight hours and its success depended upon the quality of natural light afforded by the weather (not surprisingly, foggy London weather producing underwhelming results). Altick notes that the duration of any one panorama was variable, but Burford typically exhibited scenes for about 12 months during that late 1840's. The business closed in 1863, eclipsed by the new art of photography that captured the exotic in an altogether different way (see The Shows of London pp. 137-140).The booklet was first printed in 1829 and this issue with the title-page dated 1830 is substantially unchanged. Both are rare.

        Album de la jeunesse...

      Paris: Gide Fils, circa, 1830. Oblong quarto, with 60 engravings; but a beautiful copy in original boards, ex libris Paul Gavault. A very rare and beautiful French children's book, with wonderful Australian plates including six based closely on Clark's Foreign Field Sports. This work is not recorded by Ferguson, nor by Muir, and this copy belonged at one time to Paul Gavault, editor of the Gumuchian catalogue of children's books, and has his bookplate.Legrand's Album was a very fine production, and a relatively early one for books of this type; the chapters on natural history, whaling (with four plates), botany, ethnography, geography, and minerals, are profusely illustrated with 60 full-page engravings, including a double-hemisphere world map with geological features in the lower margin, and an astronomical chart with a pretty volvelle showing the earth orbiting the sun. Roughly a third of the plates, including six Australian scenes of Aborigines hunting and fishing, are drawn from J.H. Clark's Foreign Field Sports, originally published in London several years earlier, and it is evident that Clark's original descriptions were also used in translation in the accompanying letterpress. Some foxing., professionally restored at the hinges.

        Designs for Ornamental Villas.

      London: James Carpenter, 1830. Quarto, lithograph title and 96 lithograph plates; possibly lacking additional letterpress title (?), in modern quarter calf. Third edition of this classic architectural pattern book. Robinson (1776-1858) was a prolific and versatile designer of country mansions and picturesque cottages. In the present work he provides sixteen designs, some of which were executed, for twelve residences, two lodges, a garden house, and stables. "The range of styles represented perhaps was the most eclectic in British architectural literature to date" (Archer): Swiss, Grecian, Palladian, Old English, Castellated, Ancient Manor House, Modern Italian, Anglo-Norman, Henry VII, Elizabethan, Ancient Timber, and Tuscan. Each design is illustrated in plan, elevation, and 'Scenic View'. Most of the scenic views were drawn on stone by J.D. Harding and printed on India paper.Of course Robinson's promotion of the cottage orné proved influential in Australia, where it became a popular architectural style with colonial architects (see Broadbent, The Australian Colonial House, p. 354). Lithograph title foxed and minor foxing to some early plates, but otherwise a very attractive copy.

        ALS to Joseph Davies, from 49 Bedford Square, 8 Feb., 1830. 'I regret that you should imagine the absence of my reply to arise from a want of interest in the subject of your letter...'

      1830 48 lines in a difficult hand, on 3 sides of folded 4to sheet with integral address leaf; sl. loss caused by seal, old folds, edge mounted onto larger 4to sheet.A long and engaging letter from Robert Owen to a fellow educationalist, Joseph Davies of Liverpool. Owen, 1771-1858, a successful mill owner, had spent his life trying to encourage social, educational and political reform for working communities, culminating in the utopian social experiments at New Lanark in Scotland and New Harmony in America. In 1830, after his involvement in both communities had ended, Owen continued to campaign for the education and improvement of working people. This correspondence with Davies, of whom little is known, is in response to a letter from Davies evidently setting out his philosophy on education. '[Your letter] I perused with such attention for your ideas for the education of infants accord in all respects with my own.' Owen, although clearly impressed with Davies' philosophy, refuses to back him financially: 'It is not in my power to assist you in money matters for alas my powers are involved in this measure which I have put in practice to relieve the population form the distress which overwhelms it & I won't prepare you to expect some difficulty in affecting satisfactory pecuniary arrangements. I have always found many obstacles opposed when money was to be abused for a future object'. He signs off with a warm flourish wishing the recipient well with the success of their shared objectives: 'Time will not permit me to send more than my sincere wishes that you may attain the future accomplishments of your object which is so necessary to the formation of a superior character of the human race'.

Mocquet, apothicaire du roi, obtint l'autorisation du roi Henri IV de voyager afin de rapporter des curiosités pour alimenter les collections royales. Sur une période de onze années, Mocquet fint six voyages ; le premier sur la côte occidentale de l'Afrique en 1602 ; le deuxième, au Cap-Verd, au Brésil sur l'Amazone et en Guyane (janvier-août 1604) ; le troisième au Portugal et au Maroc (avril 1605 - mars 1606) ; le quatrième au Mozambique et jusqu'à Goa (1610) ; enfin, le cinquième en Syrie et Palestine (septembre 1611 - juillet 1612), et le dernier en Espagne, non sans ramener chaque fois au roi de nombreuses curiosités de tous les genres, dont l'auteur porte témoignage. Douée d'une profonde curiosité, la narration des voyages de l'auteur est pleine de détails singuliers et d'anecdotes. L'ensemble n'est pas sans esprit critique, notamment sur le Maroc, et les Portugais à Goa, ou le commerce. C'est un récit fort agréable et divertissant d'un voyageur du tout début du XVIIe.

        On The Construction of Fire-Engines and Apparatus, the training of firemen, and the method of proceeding in cases of fire. FIRST EDITION.

      Edinburgh: sold by Bell & Bradfute, and Oliver & Boyd, &c. 1830 double front. tipped in on stub, folding plates. Uncut in recent half brown calf by Philip Dusell, gilt spine. Signed 'M. Braidwood 1.2.22. on recto of front. Additional inscription on title: 'City Road 14.12.69' with signature of J. Grant, in similar hand on (p.1). A handsome copy.Not in BL; Oxford & NLS only on Copac. James Braidwood, 1800-1861, founded the world's first municipal fire service in Edinburgh in 1824 and this text represents the earliest comprehensive guide to the construction of equipment and the training of officers within the increasingly organised fire services of 19th century urban Britain. His success in Edinburgh, which was built on personal acts of bravery and his ability to train his officers in modern methods of fighting fires, brought Braidwood to the attention of London fire fighters. In 1832 he was appointed the first Superintendent of the London Fire-Engine Establishment, an organisation which was to become the London Fire Brigade in 1865. Braidwood died in 1861 fighting a fire at London Bridge which burnt for two weeks causing £2,000,000 of damage.

        Captain Sir Christopher Cole, R.N. K.C.B. Colonel of Marines, &c. &c. &c.

      London: n.d. but circa, 1830. Mezzotint, 522 x 404 mm., noted in the plate as "proof" at bottom left, small cut at the bottom and a tear in the right-hand side of the image repaired, but an excellent portrait. A fine mezzotint portrait of Sir Christopher Cole, an important naval officer and patron to King's long-serving companion of the Mermaid and Bathurst voyages, John Septimus Roe. A feint inscription at the lower left of the image notes that this is a proof copy.Sir Christopher Cole (1770-1837), Post Captain and Colonel of Marine, served as Flag Captain to Lord Hugh Seymour and to Sir J.T. Duckworth, relieved the garrison to Amboyne in 1810 and captured Banda Neira. He retired from the sea to represent Glamorganshire, and was made commander of the yacht Royal Sovereign in 1828.Cole had tremendous influence on the career of the great Australian cartographer and naval officer John Septimus Roe. Roe's first appointment was as the "schoolmaster" under Cole on board the Rippon, a vessel which saw service against the French. It was Cole who noticed Roe's skill at charts and drawing, and soon had the young midshipman not only making detailed charts for the navy, but also drawing sketches to be forwarded to Cole's "sweetheart", one Miss Talbot. Cole, together with Roe's other influential patron Sir Richard Keats, did keep an eye out for Roe, and the two men were involved in organising first his appointment to the Admiralty under Captain Thomas Hurd, and soon after, his appointment to the Mermaid with Phillip Parker King. One of the first times that Roe was allowed to name something he had charted while sailing on the Australian coast he plumped for "Cole's Island".The original painting of Cole was by William Owen R.A., and is here engraved by George H. Phillips. Owen had a prestigious career as a portraitist, and boasted a list of distinguished sitters. He was elected to the Royal Academy in 1806.

        Variations Brillantes pour le Piano Forte sur la Cavatine favorite Aurora sorgerai nella Donna del Lago del Maestro Rossini, Dediées à Madame la Comtesse de la Roche-Agnon [?] et composées par Henri Herz. Oeuv. 17.

      Paris, Au Magasin de Musique de Pacini, n.d. (late 1820s-1830s?). - 5 works bound together. Folio (33.8 x 26 cm.), contemporary (Brazilian?) green sheep, smooth spine gilt (defective at head and foot, a bit faded), covers with Greek key design gilt within ruled gilt border, Imperial arms of Brazil at center with gilt initials "P.I.D.J.", additional gilt-tooled vignette below the arms on the front cover (significant scraping and some other wear, mostly to extremities), edges of covers milled (but much faded), green endleaves, all text block edges gilt. Engraved title page. Engraved musical notation throughout. On thick paper of excellent quality. Minor dampstaining at outer margin of first 4 leaves. Overall in good to very good condition. (1 l.), 17, (1) pp. *** Another edition of this piece was published in Vienna by Diabelli, also without date; the Österreichischen Nationalbibliothek record for it gives the year [1828]. Rossini's La Donna del Lago premiered in 1819.Henri Herz (1803-1888) was one of the most popular pianists, composers and teachers in Europe during the mid-nineteenth century, when he capitalized on the public's new passion for pianos. He performed in Europe, Russia, South America, and in the United States. From 1842 to 1874 he taught piano at the Paris Conservatoire, where he had studied himself back in 1816. Herz established a piano factory in Paris in 1830, and won first prize for his entry to the Paris Exposition of 1855. Herz and contemporaries such as Johann Hummel and Carl Czerny were criticized by Robert Schumann for shallow virtuosity. Herz, a Jew, was born in Vienna, where he studied music with his father and the organist Daniel Hünten. On one of the title pages in this volume, he describes himself as "Pianiste de S.M. le Roi de France."Provenance: "P.I.D.J." stands for "Princesa Imperial Dona Januária", the second daughter of D. Pedro I, Emperor of Brazil and King of Portugal as D. Pedro IV, and his first wife Maria Leopoldina, Archduchess of Austria, Empress consort of Brazil, and Queen consort of Portugal (1797-1826), daughter of the last Holy Roman Emperor Franz II (later Franz I of Austria). Dona Januária was born in Rio de Janeiro, in the Palácio de São Cristóvão, Quinta da Boa Vista, 1822. From 1835 until 1845, she held the title Princess Imperial of Brazil, as the heir presumptive of her brother the Emperor D. Pedro II. Her marriage to Prince Luigi of the Two Sicilies, Count of Aquila (brother of D. Pedro II's new wife, Empress Teresa Cristina) was celebrated on 28 April 1844 in Rio de Janeiro. Her husband was a son of King Francesco I of the Two Sicilies and his second wife the Infanta Maria Isabella of Spain. Friction developed between the Count of Aquila and D. Januária's brother, the Emperor D. Pedro II. D. Januária and Aquila were eventually permitted to leave Brazil in October 1844. In 1845, D. Januária's position as heir presumptive, and the restrictions it entailed, was lost with the birth of D. Pedro II's first child, D. Afonso, Prince Imperial of Brazil. The city of Januária in Minas Gerais was named in her honor. She died in Nice in 1901.*** Not located in Copac.

        1. Nave pel trasporto de' Deportati. 2. Approdo nel porto di Sydney de Deportati.

      Italy: n.d., circa, 1830. Two lithographic plates, 105 x 130 mm. each, on a single sheet; disbound. A rare and unusual piece of transportation history, showing a delightful and rather fanciful depiction of two scenes from the voyages to Sydney.In both scenes there is a distinct sense of classical genre painting, and in both the vessels depicted look closer to Mediterranean brigantines than true convict ships. The first image shows the embarking of the convicts, presumably in England - although one could easily be confused by their casual Mediterranean attire. The second shows the arrival and disembarking of the transport, with the convicts still looking improbably comfortable. It is particularly intriguing that of the six people gathered at the foot of the gangplank, two appear to be naked Aborigines.As with the copy in the National Library of Australia, this print has been disbound. Very good.

      8vo., original presentation binding of full red calf, boards with wide gilt border of trailing foliate tendrils, with blind stamp central panel, lettered and decorated in gilt on spine, marbled paper endpapers. Pp. [xii]26. Head and tails of spine chipped, a little rubbing to corners and joints otherwise a very good copy. A rare printing of an Edinburgh University dissertation on cholera by David Colville Carruthers, who later was to become Ordinary Physician to the Dundee Cholera Hospital. This presentation copy inscribed opposite p.1 "To James (?) Miller Esq with the best wishes of his friend the author." Printed dedications are to the author's uncle Alexander Ramsay, doctor at the lunatic asylum in Dundee and Carruther's teacher, William Colville, a soldier in Calcutta, his uncle Thomas Colville, serving as well in Calcutta, and James Ogilvy, an Edinburgh surgeon - all dedications printed on separate leaves. The thesis itself opens with a digest of authoritative passages from Hippocrates to Cullen, Sydenham, Bateman and recent medical experience gained by British practitioners in India, Sir James Annesley in particular, who served for more than the first third of the 19th century as a surgeon in India. In comparing outbreaks of cholera in Europe and India Carruthers, assistant surgeon to the army in Bengal, laconically states that in the West the prognosis is frequently positive, whereas on the Subcontinent 'prognosis infelix est'. - This is a rare case of an epidemiological study comparing the course of a disease in two continents. Historical background for this medical dissertation is the so-called First Cholera Pandemic, which began in 1816 in Bengal and spread across India and beyond (as far West as the Caspian Sea), before receding 1826. Hundreds of thousands of Indians and ten thousand British troops died during this pandemic. London was to be hit by a second outbreak in 1832. Copac only lists Edinburgh University, OCLC adds University of Wisconsin and Staatsbibliothek zu Berlin.

        Le rouge et le noir

      The first edition, "very rare and extremely sought-after" (Clouzot). One of 750 copies, title vignettes by Henry Monnier. Romantic pastiche binding of half pink calf over marbled boards with small corners, the spine with four delicate crimped raised bands (very lightly sunned) with gilt filets and blindstamped typographic motifs, gilt garlands at head and foot, marbled endpapers.  Le Rouge et le Noir, begun during the Restoration, was only completed four months after the Revolution of July 1830 and did not appear until the final weeks of that year. While all the critics at the time praised the exceptional qualities of the novel, even the most laudatory were shocked by its lively critique of society and of the Jacobinism of Julien Sorel.A superb copy of the first edition, complete with publisher's advertisement leaf, of this great classic of French literature. A broad-margined copy (126 x 210 mm) in an attractive Romantic pastiche binding.   A. Levavasseur Paris 1831 13,5x21,3cm 2 volumes reliés

Edizione censita in ICCU, due soli esemplari), ma sconosciuta ai principali repertori consultati, che annoverano un’edizione dello stesso anno con titolo leggermente differente e 75 carte di testo di spiegazione delle tavole ma con titolo differente. Molto raro. Prima edizione di questa raccolta di costumi del grande incisore, pittore e ceramista romano, Bartolomeo Pinelli (Roma, 20 novembre 1781 – Roma, 1º aprile 1835). Nacque a Roma il 20 novembre 1781, da Giovanni Battista e Francesca Gianfarani, in un edificio del rione di Trastevere oggi non più esistente, ma in corrispondenza del quale si trovano una lapide ed un busto bronzeo in suo onore. Suo padre era un modellatore di statue devozionali, e lo avviò all’arte della manipolazione della ceramica. Tuttavia le sue capacità nel campo della figurazione si sarebbero esplicate soprattutto attraverso le tecniche dell’incisione, del disegno e della pittura. Si formò prima all’Accademia di Belle Arti di Bologna, città dove la famiglia si era trasferita nel 1792, e poi all’Accademia di San Luca a Roma, dove era tornato nel 1799. Nello stesso 1799 cominciò la collaborazione con Franz Kaisermann, per il quale dipinse le figure delle sue vedute all’acquerello. Nel frattempo diede inizio ai suoi studi, sbocciati poi (1807) nell’Album di trentasei acquerelli di Scene e Costumi di Roma e del Lazio. Quanto al suo aspetto fisico e alle sue abitudini comportamentali, così scrisse di lui un contemporaneo: " Fu Bartolomeo Pinelli di media statura, di fisonomia e di portamento vivaci; portò folta la capigliatura che a lunghi boccoli gli incorniciava il viso e gli scendeva inanellata dinanzi [ ]; i tratti del viso ebbe marcati, ma regolari, e non portò che i piccoli mustacchi come appare anche nel suo busto che fu posto al Pincio. Di costumi fu bizzarro, amante anche troppo dello scherzo. Vestì negligentemente a modo del popolo e lo si vide sempre girare per Roma accompagnato da due grandi mastini e munito di mazza che aveva per pomo una figura di bronzo. Era facile all’ira quantunque fosse di consueto allegro e faceto; fu scettico [leggi: ateo] come molti degli uomini di ingegno del suo tempo e fu patriota a suo modo, cioè innamorato di Roma antica, nella quale concentrò tutti i suoi affetti " (David Silvagni, La corte e la società romana nei secoli XVII e XIX, Roma, Forzani & C. Tipografi del Senato, 1881-4, voll. 3, vol. III, p. 395). Del 1809 è la sua prima serie di incisioni dal titolo Raccolta di cinquanta costumi pittoreschi incisi all’acquaforte. Fu probabilmente nello stesso anno che contrasse ilmatrimonio con Mariangela Gatti, avvenuto con rito repubblicano e dal quale nacquero una figlia femmina, forse morta in giovane età e di cui non si conoscono nemmeno gli estremi anagrafici, e un maschio, Achille. Nel 1816 realizzò le illustrazioni per la Storia Romana e nel 1821 quelle per la Storia Greca. Tra il 1822 e il 1823 realizzò le cinquantadue tavole per il Meo Patacca. Il 25 agosto 1834, per la sua indifferenza al precetto pasquale, ricevette con disprezzo l’interdetto. Morì povero il 1º aprile del 1835, lasciando incompleta l’illustrazione del Maggio romanesco di Giovanni Camillo Peresio. Oltre al repertorio di immagini dedicate ai costumi romani ha illustrato numerosi libri, realizzando cicli ispirati a Iliade, Odissea, Eneide e alla mitologia greco-romana. Opere che maggiormente rivelano l’impronta del neoclassicismo. Per altre edizioni
