        Illustrations of the American Ornithology of Alexander Wilson and Charles Lucien Bonaparte, Prince of Musignano. With the Addition of Numerous Recently Discovered Species and Representations of the Whole Sylva of North America.

      1831. Edinburgh: Frazer; Dublin: William Curry, Jnr.; and London: Smith, Elder, [1831]-1835. Large folio (527 x 406mm), with engraved title-page by James Turvey, engraved dedication leaf to David, Earl of Airlie, and 124 beautifully hand-coloured engraved plates after Brown, Alexander Wilson, A.Rider, Joseph B. Kidd, Turvey, W.H. Lizars, Samuel Milne, James Mayson, R. Scott, J. & J. Johnstone, and E. Mitchell, with three-page letterpress index, numerous plates with over-slips correcting the plate numbers, fine half russia gilt with marbled sides First edition, a superb copy of one of the scarcest colour-plate books on American ornithology from the library of Frederick Ducane Godman. Walter Faxon's census of copies of this work locates only seven complete and six incomplete. There have been only six complete copies at auction in the last twenty-five years. The title-page to this work refers only to the works by Wilson and Bonaparte, but included in the more than five hundred engravings are illustrations based on the works of Audubon, Selby and others. 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.

        "A Journal of Remarks and Observations as Kept by E[dward] G[eorge M[orse]. Remarks on board the Sarah Barque of London" [Journal of a Voyage to Seychelles, Madagascar, Mauritius, St Helena and Ascension Island on board the Barque "Sarah" out of London].

      Mostly at sea, on board the barque "Sarah" of London, April 1831-14 March 1833 (with additions to 1835).. 4to (19.5 x 16.5 cm). [191] ff. Including paste-downs and about 55 blanks. The journal with an engraved view as frontispiece , 15 full-page, 1 nearly full-page and 1 smaller manuscript maps and coastal profiles, plus a small engraved view mounted on 1 page. The lecture notes with a matching pair of engravings of a scull on and facing the title-page, and 27 pencil and/or ink anatomical drawings (including 2 full-page), some also with red. - Including: [Anatomical manuscript]. Morse, Edward George. Lecture Book [notes on anatomical lectures by Joseph Constantine Carpue]. [London], November-December 1828. Contemporary sheepskin parchment.. A manuscript ship's journal kept by Edward George Morse (Bromyard 1805?-Deal post 1850?), who no doubt served, among other functions, as the ship's surgeon. Morse reflects on Arabian navigation and Arabian explorers, including the deservedly famous Ibn Battuta. "The Arabians like the Chinese are said to have employed the compass to guide them through the trackless sands of the desert or to enable them at the hours of prayer to direct their faces with precision towards the city of Mecca and tomb of the prophet. In the sixteenth century moreover when the Portuguese first visited the Indian seas they found that the Arabians are the chief navigators of those seas [...]". - Morse made his earliest dated entries in April 1831 at the island Mauritius in the Indian Ocean and others at Madagascar and its surrounding islands from May to August 1831. Those around Madagascar indicate he was on the barque Manchester, but from at least 11 December 1831 to his arrival back in England on 14 March 1833 he was on the barque Sarah, a 600 ton ship sailing out of London. In it he spent a year in the Seychelles 11 December 1831-15 December 1832, including Make Island, Bird Island, Praslin Island and La Digue. - In very good condition. The binding is dirty and abraded, and the boards slightly warped, but it remains structurally sound. A fascinating and unusual ship's journal with numerous maps, kept in the unused leaves of the author's illustrated anatomical lecture notes from a few years earlier.

        Ganka kinno [trans.: Causes, Diagnoses, and Treatments of Eye Diseases]

      Woodcut illus. in the text. Printed on double leaves, oriental style. Four vols. 8vo, orig. wrappers, orig. block printed title label on upper cover, stitched as issued in the oriental style. Edo: 1831. [with]:--. Zoku Ganka kinno [trans.: Causes, Diagnoses, and Treatments of Eye Diseases, Second Series]. Woodcut illus. in the text (several are color printed). Two vols. 8vo, orig. wrappers, orig. block printed title label on upper cover, stitched as issued in the oriental style. Edo: 1837. First edition. "In 1831 Fuichi or Shinichi or Toshiatsu Honjo (died 1846) published his Ganka kinno, a Japanese work in four volumes comparing the theory and practice of Chinese and European (Dutch) ophthalmological methods. After the usual series of commendatory prefaces, that book presented the gross anatomy of the eye with particular reference to the ocular muscles and the optic nerve; following that, the description of the geometrical optics of the eye: the projection of an external object on the retina; and the degree or range of normal vision, from myopia to hyperopia, in relation to the curvature of the crystalline lens. All of these descriptions were illustrated with colored woodblock prints. Of unique interest is an illustration showing the different appearances of the doko ('apple of the eye' = the pupil) in the successive stages in the making of artificial eyes. Volumes 1 and 2 presented diseases or abnormal conditions of the external or accessory structures of the eye (e.g. the eyelids) and treated of trauma, trachoma and acute conjunctivitis. Volume 3 elaborated the diseases and pathology of the internal eye (i.e. the eyeball). Volume 4 consisted entirely of prescriptions for the treatment of eye diseases. At that time in Japan ophthalmological science was a combination or admixture of Chinese and Dutch knowledge, and the Ganka kinno was considered the best monograph on that practice... "A continuation of that work by Fuichi Honjo appeared in 1837 under the title Zoku ganka kinno, in two volumes. That was a sort of clinical section to the earlier work. A series of wood-block illustrations, some in color, showed a variety of ophthalmological instruments, with textual descriptions of their use, and pictures of their application. For example, an instrument for applying medicine to the eye was made by tying a bag containing the medicine around the end of a wooden handle, and used by squeezing it against the eye with the head tilted backward. An eye-dropper, syringes, and a magnifying glass for use by the oculist were figured. Ophthalmological instruments consisted of various kinds of spoons, tubes, loops, forceps, scissors, needles, lances, knives, and clamps. Illustrations of each of these are shown. Retractors for the eyelids were of bamboo or of copper. Metallic instruments (cautery irons) to be heated in a charcoal fire were shown, with an illustration of them in use. Other pictures showed the use of special needles in the treatment of cataract."-Mestler, A Galaxy of Old Japanese Medical Books With Miscellaneous Notes on Early Medicine in Japan. Part IV. Ophthalmology, Psychiatry, Dentistry, pp. 334-35. Honjo was one of the most prominent physicians in Japan and was well-known as an educator who was familiar with Chinese, Western, and Japanese medicine. He worked very closely with P.F. von Siebold. The present book was the standard work on ophthalmology in Japan throughout the 19th century. Fine set. .

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

      New York: Carvill, 1831. 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'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. 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'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'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. DSB.

        The Long Song

      Headline Review, 2010. 1st printing 1st. Hardcover. Fine/n/a. Signed by Author. SIGNED by author. Fine unread copy in illustrated boards without dustwrapper as published. "You do not know me yet. My son Thomas, who is publishing this book, tells me, it is customary at this place in a novel to give the reader a little taste of the story that is held within these pages. As your storyteller, I am to convey that this tale is set in Jamaica during the last turbulent years of slavery and the early years of freedom that followed. July is a slave girl who lives upon a sugar plantation named Amity and it is her life that is the subject of this tale. She was there when the Baptist War raged in 1831, and she was also present when slavery was declared no more. My son says I must convey how the story tells also of JulyÀs mama Kitty, of the negroes that worked the plantation land, of Caroline Mortimer the white woman who owned the plantation and many more persons besides - far too many for me to list here. But what befalls them all is carefully chronicled upon these pages for you to peruse. Perhaps, my son suggests, I might write that it is a thrilling journey through that time in the company of people who lived it. All this he wishes me to pen so the reader can decide if this is a book they might care to consider. Cha, I tell my son, what fuss-fuss. Come, let them just read it for themselves" Nominated for the BOOKER LONGLIST 2010.

        ANTOLOGIA, giornale di scienze, lettere ed arti - 1831 anno XI COMPLETO - VOLUMI XLI - XLIV - Fascicoli dal 121 al 132., Firenze, Gabinetto di G.P. Vieusseux, 1831

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

        Insurrection of the Blacks [Nat Turner's Revolt]

      Baltimore: Niles Weekly Register, 1831. Some of the earliest reporting on Nat Turner's revolt in Southampton, Virginia, which began on 21 Aug 1831. These are the first two issues of the Niles' Weekly Register (27 Aug 1831 and 3 Sep 1831) to recount the events. The 27 Aug paper, which is especially scarce, devotes 13.5 column inches and includes the initial report of the violent attacks published in the Norfolk Herald. The 3 Sep paper, which is less scarce though still uncommonly found, contains 18 column inches, corrects some errors from the previous week's report and provides additional details. The newspapers were once bound. Both are clean and supple with some light toning. The leaves of the 27 Aug edition have some edge wear at the upper right margins. Together these two newspapers provide an extraordinary contemporary record of the slaughter in which about 40 slaves hacked, stabbed, and clubbed to death 60 white people. Many of the victims were killed in their sleep and most of those killed were women and young children, eleven of whom were decapitated after being trapped in a school classroom.. First Edition. Newspaper. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Six Coloured Views on the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, with a plate of the Coaches, Machines, &c. From Drawings Made on the Spot by Mr. T.T. Bury. London: Published by R. Ackermann, and Sold by R. Ackermann, Jun., 1831.First edition. Large quarto (13 3/8 x 11 1/8 inches; 339 x 282 mm.). [2], Seven hand-colored aquatint plates by H. Pyall after T.T. Bury. First blank leaf watermarked: “1827” Plate seven watermarked 1831. All of the plates are dated “Feby. 1831.” The plates are captioned: 1. “The Tunnel;” 2. “Entrance of the Railway at Edge-Hill, Liverpool;” 3. “Excavation of Olive Mount, 4 Miles from Liverpool;” 4. “Viaduct across the Sankey Valley;” 5. “View of the Railway across Chat Moss;” 6. “Entrance into Manchester across Water Street;” 7. “Coaches, &c. employed on the Railway. Original quarter calf backed printed drab wrappers with printed advertisements on the inside front and inside and outside back. An exceptional copy, slightly larger than Abbey’s. Housed in a custom-made half brown morocco clamshell case.“A later edition with the plates re-engraved [many of them with significant changes] was issued in 1833” (Tooley). “This book was first published with six plates in 1831. It proved popular, and other editions followed…This classic record of the beginnings of the railway age was also one of the last significant books illustrated with aquatints. Lithography was already sweeping the field for pictorial records of this kind” (Ray, The Illustrator and the Book in England).Thomas Bury (1811-1877), “a pupil of Augustus Pugin, was the artist responsible for the best-known views of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway. Published as hand-coloured aquatints in paper covers by Ackermann in February 1831 [titled Six Coloured Views of the Liverpool and Manchester Railway, with a plate of the coaches, machines, &c], Bury’s work went through many editions covering a period of about three years. There were seven views in the first edition and thirteen in the second. A reissue appeared in 1832 followed by Spanish and French editions, while the prints were reproduced separately in France and Germany. After re-engraving, new editions appeared in England in 1833 and 1834…Ackermann clearly realized the potential of the British and European markets for railway prints as no other work passed through so many editions” (Rees).
