The "narrative and account are compiled from several letters addressed by a young man of respectability (now resident at the Swan River) to his relations in England… no statement is presented herein which is not in strict accordance with the truth" (author's advertisement). Powell dedicated the book to the conservative statesman Sir Robert Peel, whose cousin Thomas Peel was an influential settler.Powell's letters were dated from Fremantle in November, 1829.

        pt. 10] Amaryllis Vittata, minor

      Robert Havell 1831 - Mrs. Edward Bury (Nee Priscilla Susan Falkner). Aquatint engraving with original hand color from A Selection of Hexandrian Plants belonging to the Natural Orders Amaryllidae and Liliaceae Printed and published by Robert Havell, Jr. London, 1831-34. Paper size: 6 ½” x 23”. Condition: Very Good. This splendid image is from the only edition of one of the finest monographs of the period, particularly exciting for the large size of the engravings and the spectacular presentation of the subject. The team of Priscilla Bury and the engraver Robert Havell surpassed their own goal as eloquently articulated in the preface of the work, which they described as “an endeavor to preserve some memorial of the brilliant and fugitive beauties of a particularly splendid and elegant tribe of plants.” The success of Bury’s work definitely owes much to the contributions of Robert Havell, who is best known for having engraved and colored the first edition of Audubon’s stunning “Birds of America.” Produced concurrently with Audubon’s work, Havell also engraved and colored Bury’s “Hexandrian Plants.” Both the Audubon aquatints and the Bury work exhibit Havell’s mastery of line, tone and color. Widely regarded as one of the most affecting color-plate botanical works of the period, the freshness and energy of Bury’s “Hexandrian Plants” is as distinctive today as it was at the time of publication. The work is rare, with the original subscribers list indicating that there were only 79 complete sets produced, many of which have not survived to the present day. These splendid examples are particularly notable and unique for originating from Havell’s personal copy of the “Hexandrian Plants,” which he never trimmed or bound for publication, leaving the margins full and ensuring the fineness of the engraving and coloring.

        De curtorum chirurgia per insitionem libri duo...

      . Recogn. et editit M.Troschel, M.D.Viro clarissimo J.F. Dieffenbach, summo aetatis suae rhinoplastae. - Berlin, 1831, 8°, XVI, 436, mit vielen Abb., 4 lith. Falttaf., Halbledereinband der Zeit.. Vierte und letzte Ausgabe nach mehr als 200 Jahren des Erscheinens der ersten drei Auflagen. - The fourth and last edition of the pioneer work on plastic surgery. Its appearance marked the revival of interest in the rhinoplastic procedures which v.Graefe and Dieffenbach stimulated in Germany. This edition, also in octavo but with a longer page than the 1598 edition, was issued in Berlin in 1831, revised and edited by Dr. Maximilian Troschel, printed and financed by G.Reimer, and dedicated to the great Johann Friedrich Dieffenbach. Shorn of all explanatory verbiage, the title was returned to its original wording in the simple "De curtorum chirurgia per insitionem, libri duo", which stands on the title-page. The index of chapters is followed by a statement of dedication to Dieffenbach, and then by the a Preface of Troschel (pp.V-XIV). The text has consecutive pagination (1-432), to which are added four (433-436) of explanatory data on the tables. Six folded tables each containing several lithographic drawings adapted from the illustrations of the first edition, complete the volume. -cf. Gnudi & Webster, p. 194; Zeis 179; Waller 9453; 32500.

        Golden City

      A wonderfully detailed hand colored lithograph by A.E. Mathews (1831-1874) ?from his series "Pencil Sketches of Colorado,?its cities, principal towns and mountain scenery", which was published in 1866. Overall this print measures 13"x19.5".?This stunning lithographic ?view of the Rocky Mountains was created a full half-century before the mountain range and the?surrounding areas gained national park status in 1915. As one of the premier views of Colorado ever produced, this rare Mathews’?lithograph is a romantic and picturesque depiction of the pure Colorado landscape, reflecting the fervor for Westward expansion?that was dominant in mid nineteenth-century thought. This view, with its sweeping snow-capped mountains and low, tree-dotted?hills is a marvelous representation of the “unblemished” American western landscape that captured the imagination of settlers?in the early years of the United States.??The Lewis and Clark Expedition from 1804-1806 was the first scientific reconnaissance of the Rocky Mountains. Specimens were?collected for contemporary botanists, zoologists, and geologists. The expedition was said to have paved the way to (and through)?the Rocky Mountains for European-Americans from the East, although Lewis and Clark met at least 11 European-American mountain men?during their travels. Mountain men, primarily French, Spanish, and British, roamed the Rocky Mountains from 1720 to 1800 seeking?mineral deposits and furs. The fur-trading North West Company established Rocky Mountain House as a trading post in what is now?the Rocky Mountain foothills of Alberta in 1799, and their business rivals the Hudson's Bay Company established Acton House?nearby.??The human history of this region can be traced back to the last great Ice Age, when the Rocky Mountains were home first to?Paleo-Indians and then to the indigenous peoples of the Apache, Arapaho, Bannock, Blackfoot, Cheyenne, Crow, Flathead, Shoshoni,?Sioux, Ute, Kutenai (Ktunaxa in Canada), Sekani, Dunne-za, and others. Paleo-Indians hunted the now-extinct mammoth and ancient?bison in the foothills and valleys of the mountains. Like the modern tribes that followed them, Paleo-Indians probably migrated?to the plains in fall and winter for bison and to the mountains in spring and summer for fish, deer, elk, roots, and berries. In?Colorado, along the crest of the Continental Divide, rock walls that Native Americans built for driving game date back 5,400-5,800 years. A growing body of scientific evidence indicates that indigenous peoples had significant effects on mammal populations?by hunting and on vegetation patterns through deliberate burning.??A.E Mathews was an English immigrant whose early career was that of a traveling bookseller and artist. During his service in the?Civil War he drew scenes of the conflict which were published as lithographs. In 1865, Mathews moved west and began producing the?lithographs for which he is best known: images of Colorado, Montana and Rocky Mountain scenery. These views are among the?earliest and rarest for the Rocky Mountain West and their detail provides important historical documentation.Overall this print is in good condition with some foxing/staining/creasing in margins

        Traite de lausculation mediate, et des maladies des poumons et du coeur. 3 Bde.

      . Troisieme Edition, Augmentee de Notes par Meriadec Laennec. - Paris, J.S. Claude, 1831, 8°, (4), XXXII, 540; (4), 551, (1); (4), 416 pp., mit 4 lith. Doppeltafeln, in 3 Halbledereinbänden der Zeit; Rücken erneuert.. "The first (1819) and second (1826) editions of Traite de l'auscultation mediate were published during Laennec's lifetime, the third edition (1831) was published by his cousin, Meriadec Laennec with his notes, and the fourth edition (1837) by Andral (1797-1876) with his notes. Forbes's translation of Laennec's Traite was first published in 1821, the second edition, 1827, third edition 1829 and fourth edition, 1834. An American edition of Forbes's translation was published in Philadelphia, 1823, and a second American edition (of the third English edition) in New York, 1830 and a third in 1835 (fourth English edition). The first German edition was published in Weimar, 1822. - Laennec's contribution to diseases of the lungs was of more importance than that to heart disease, for the cause of the heart sounds was unknown in 1819. He made a fundamental error in attributing the second sound to atrial systole. In his first edition (1819), he regarded the bellows murmur as evidence of valvular obstruction; in the second edition (1826) he revised his opinion and regarded the murmur as due to spasm of the heart, a muscular sound. He also discarded the new laether sound described by Collin (no. 465), his chef de clinique, as due to pericarditis, and attributed it to cardio-pulmonary bruit. So in the second edition he fell into worse error than in the first." Bedford, p.96

The index mentions that Brown added 161 birds to those covered by Wilson and Bonaparte, with a further 87 being "considerably enlarged." 'Brown's 'Illustrations of the American ornithology' of Wilson and Bonaparte (1831-1835), dazzles the eye, and a particularly lovely copy reposes in the Hill Collection' (Hill collection)./There are 167 Trees and Shrubs represented, all of which are identified in the index.//These plates display the best work of the leading engravers of Edinburgh at the time, including W.H. Lizars, who engraved the earliest of Audubon's plates and some of Selby's for his Illustrations of British Ornithology. The colouring in this copy is particularly fine and the botanical additions, including the floral backgrounds are of the highest quality. A very fine copy of an extremely rare work.//Fine Bird Books 62; Wood 264; Nissen IVB, 152.

Heine's Beschreibung eines neunen künstlichen Fusses für den Ober- und Unterschenkel, Würzburg 1811 enthält zwar - was man von einem der vorzüglichsten Mechaniker Deutschlands auch nicht anders erwarten darf, sehr viel Nutzbares; da jeder Fuss aber übermäßig complicirt, also auch sehr wandelbar, schwer, kostbar und nur von geübten Arbeiter darzustellen ist, so ist er nicht allgemein anzuwenden . fortgesetztes Nachdenken und der für meine Aufgabe glückliche Zufall, dass sich nach practischen Prüfung derselben nach und nach viele der verschiedenartigsten Amputationsstumpfe fanden, gab zu vielen Veränderungen und Verbesserungen Anlass." Vorrede - Albert Ludwig Dornblüth, einer der angesehensten Mecklenburger Medizinern "geboren in Ludwigslust am 14.April 1784, promovirt 1813 in Rostock, war praktischer Arzt und seit 1823 Kreisphysicus in Plau in Mecklenburg. Er starb daselbst am 13.März 1857. Als sehr angesehener Arzt war Dornblüth gleichzeitig auch literarisch thätig und arbeitete speciell über Behandlung der Knochenbrüche und Deformitäten; Wiedersatz verlorener Gliedmassen, theils selbständige Werke, theils Aufsätze in Zeitschriften aus. Ferner schrieb er über Pocken und Impfung, geburtshilfliche und gerichtlich-medicinische Casuistik in den Zeitschriften von Hufeland, Horn, Rust, Casper, Henke, Fricke, Hannemann und populäre Aufsätze im Mecklenburgischen Freimüthigen Abendblatte 1822-1847."

        Brieffragment mit eigenh. U.

      Berlin, 28. November 1831.. 1 S. Qu.-8vo.. An Paul Johann Anselm Rt. von Feuerbach: &quote;[...] Von meiner Freude über Vollendung des Hauser schweige ich, weil sie sich von selbst versteht; eben so von meinem Schmerz, daß ich Ihre Anwesenheit in Dresden erst erfahren, da Sie nicht mehr da sind. In Ihrer Furcht vor Berlin sehe ich, wenn ich offen sein soll, viel Hypochondrie. [...] Doch ich spreche: Herr Dein Wille geschehe, und es kann nie anders als beim Alten bleiben, denn nie wird die Dankbarkeit für Belohnung, Theilnahme, Unterstützung aufhören [...]&quote;. Feuerbach, der große deutsche Jurist und Schöpfer des bayerischen Strafgesetzbuches von 1813, gilt als Begründer der modernen deutschen Strafrechtslehre wie der psychologischen Abschreckungstheorie; zudem Obervormund und Gönner von Kaspar Hauser, veröffentlichte er 1832 das hier erwähnte Buch &quote;Kaspar Hauser. Beispiel eines Verbrechens am Seelenleben des Menschen&quote;. - Hitzig war seit 1801 Referendar am Berliner Kammergericht und gehörte zu den Begründern des literarischen &quote;Nordsternbundes&quote;, aus dessen Kreis der von Adelbert von Chamisso und Karl August Varnhagen von Ense herausgegebene &quote;Grüne Musenalmanach&quote; hervorging. 1804 kehrte er als Regierungsassessor nach Warschau zurück, machte dort die Bekanntschaft E.T.A. Hoffmanns und absolvierte eine Buchhändlerlehre bei Georg Reimer, nachdem er sein Amt durch den Sieg Napoleons 1807 verloren hatte. 1808 gründete seinen eigenen Verlag, in dem u. a. Heinrich von Kleists &quote;Berliner Abendblätter&quote; erschienen; 1814 verkaufte er den Verlag, um in den preußischen Staatsdienst zurückzukehren. Hitzig &quote;bestimmte das literarische Leben Berlins in den Jahren 1815-40 entscheidend mit, gründete 1824 die Mittwochsgesellschaft', der auch Joseph von Eichendorff angehörte, und schrieb u. a. Biographien von E. T. A. Hoffmann, Werner und Chamisso. 1842-47 zeichnete er als Mitherausgeber des Neuen Pitaval', einer Sammlung von Kriminalgeschichten&quote; (DBE). - Die Recto-Seite mit altem Sammlervermerk zum Verfasser und zur Provenienz (&quote;Don[atio] Fr. Prof. Feuerbach&quote;).

        Names and Descriptions of all Male and Female Convicts arrived in the Colony of New South Wales during the year 1830

      Sydney, 1831. Large folio, 188 pp., small tear in one leaf neatly repaired, very minor foxing; very good, in later marbled wrappers. "Anchor on right arm, flattish nose...": 7 years for picking pockets. Rare and important: Ferguson knew only the Mitchell Library copy of this, the first such register to provide so complete a description of each convict including various assigned numbers, age, education, religion, marital status, children, native place, trade, offences, sentence, former convictions, physical details, particular marks and scars, etc. Space is left for recording later events in the convicts' lives under a heading "Unofficial History" to show the date of ticket of leave, pardon, certificate of freedom, etc., and ultimate death or departure. Such registers, which were later issued annually, were intended for official use only and therefore very limited in number. 'Printed for official use only, probably at the Sydney Gazette Office.' The present copy is in fine crisp condition.

        The animal kingdom arranged in conformity with its organization . . . translated by H. M'Murtrie

      New York: Carvill, 1831. <p>Cuvier, Georges L. C. F. D., baron (1769-1832). The animal kingdom arranged in conformity with its organization. . . . Translated from the French, with notes and additions, by H. M&#39;Murtrie, M.D. 4 vols., 8vo. xxxii, 448 [2]; xv [1], 475 [1]; xx, 575 [1]; xii, 545 [1]pp. 20 engraved plates. New York: G. & C. & H. Carvill, 1831. 220 x 133 mm. Speckled sheep ca. 1831, gilt-ruled spines (slightly rubbed). Moderate foxing and browning, but a fine copy.</p> <p>First American Edition. See Dibner, Heralds of Science, 195, Printing and the Mind of Man 276, Garrison-Morton 327. The most influential exposition of the typological approach to animal classification, representing the greatest body of zoological facts that had yet been assembled; it served as the standard zoological manual for most of Europe during the first half of the nineteenth century. Cuvier&#39;s view of animal organization led him to an early recognition of the balance of nature, both with respect to the functional balance of parts in the individual and the interdependence of groups in the "network of nature." However, Cuvier&#39;s adherence to the concept of species as rigid, unchanging types rendered him unable to account for the immense variation within species populations. Coleman, pp. 94-98.

        Twin Lakes

      A wonderfully detailed hand colored lithograph by A.E. Mathews (1831-1874) ?from his series "Pencil Sketches of Colorado,?its cities, principal towns and mountain scenery", which was published in 1866. Overall this print measures 13"x19.5".?This stunning lithographic ?view of the Rocky Mountains was created a full half-century before the mountain range and the?surrounding areas gained national park status in 1915. As one of the premier views of Colorado ever produced, this rare Mathews’?lithograph is a romantic and picturesque depiction of the pure Colorado landscape, reflecting the fervor for Westward expansion?that was dominant in mid nineteenth-century thought. This view, with its sweeping snow-capped mountains and low, tree-dotted?hills is a marvelous representation of the “unblemished” American western landscape that captured the imagination of settlers?in the early years of the United States.??The Lewis and Clark Expedition from 1804-1806 was the first scientific reconnaissance of the Rocky Mountains. Specimens were?collected for contemporary botanists, zoologists, and geologists. The expedition was said to have paved the way to (and through)?the Rocky Mountains for European-Americans from the East, although Lewis and Clark met at least 11 European-American mountain men?during their travels. Mountain men, primarily French, Spanish, and British, roamed the Rocky Mountains from 1720 to 1800 seeking?mineral deposits and furs. The fur-trading North West Company established Rocky Mountain House as a trading post in what is now?the Rocky Mountain foothills of Alberta in 1799, and their business rivals the Hudson's Bay Company established Acton House?nearby.??The human history of this region can be traced back to the last great Ice Age, when the Rocky Mountains were home first to?Paleo-Indians and then to the indigenous peoples of the Apache, Arapaho, Bannock, Blackfoot, Cheyenne, Crow, Flathead, Shoshoni,?Sioux, Ute, Kutenai (Ktunaxa in Canada), Sekani, Dunne-za, and others. Paleo-Indians hunted the now-extinct mammoth and ancient?bison in the foothills and valleys of the mountains. Like the modern tribes that followed them, Paleo-Indians probably migrated?to the plains in fall and winter for bison and to the mountains in spring and summer for fish, deer, elk, roots, and berries. In?Colorado, along the crest of the Continental Divide, rock walls that Native Americans built for driving game date back 5,400-5,800 years. A growing body of scientific evidence indicates that indigenous peoples had significant effects on mammal populations?by hunting and on vegetation patterns through deliberate burning.??A.E Mathews was an English immigrant whose early career was that of a traveling bookseller and artist. During his service in the?Civil War he drew scenes of the conflict which were published as lithographs. In 1865, Mathews moved west and began producing the?lithographs for which he is best known: images of Colorado, Montana and Rocky Mountain scenery. These views are among the?earliest and rarest for the Rocky Mountain West and their detail provides important historical documentation.Overall this print is in fair condition with some foxing/staining/creasing in margins and a small tear to the bottom margin.

        The Life of Samuel Johnson

      London - John Murray, 1831 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Five volumes beautifully bound fully in leather with gilt lettering and decoration. In good clean condition internally apart from the folding plate and round robin letter as usual with this particular edition. A very pretty set of this English classic. Priced as ex library but actually very unobrusive. Samuel Johnson (1709-1784) was an essayist,critic and novelist, compiler of the first Dictionary of the English Language and subject of Boswell&#39;s famous biography. Quite a celebrity during his own life, he is now regarded one of the foremost critics of his time with a lasting influence on subsequent generations,including T. S. Eliot. Johnson also significantly altered styles of travel and biographical writing. James Boswell (1740-95) isbest known for his extensive journals that covered his travels, and conversations with many of the great and the good of his day. He was great friends with Samuel Johnson and upon Johnson&#39;s death became his biographer. Condition: The bindings are mostlyreasonably tight. Two volumes have been rebacked with new spines and title labels. The other three volumeshave split hinges, loose title labels with some lossand greater wear to the spine. All volumes have the boards and internal pages firmly attached. There issome wear to the extremities includingmarks to the boards, bumping to the corners and scuffing to the leather. Internally, the pages are generally clean withthe odd brown spot or handling mark. The spotting is worst on the first and last fewpages of each volume. There is a personalised bookplateon the front pastedown of each volume and a Ex Libris Universitatis Bristolliensis plate on each endpaper. There is a discreet library stamp on the bottom of the title page of each volume, and ashelf stickerat the bottom of each front pastedown. The condition of these volumes is very good..
