        Illustrations and descriptions of the plants which compose the natural order camellieae, and of the varieties of Camellia Japonica, cultivated in the gardens of Great Britain.

      London John and Arthur Arch 1831 - Volume 1 (all published) folio (38 x 28 cm.).With 40 hand-coloured plates (36 engraved, 4 lithographed) by S. Watts and Weddell after Chandler, heightened in gum arabic; fine contemporary green half morocco gilt, covers with L-shaped corners with multiple gilt fillets, flat spine with gilt geometric designs and floral tooling, marbled sides and edges, plates clean and fresh, a most attractive example. One of finest works on camellias, here in its most desirable state. Described by Wilfred Blunt as "handsome and rare", with magnificent plates after the drawings of Alfred Chandler "beautifully coloured with opaque pigments" (Dunthorne), the work was available in three issues: uncoloured, coloured, or -as in this example- coloured and highly finished with gum arabic. Chandler's drawings were mostly based on examples of camellia grown by at the nursery at Vauxhall run by his father. The Camellia was first introduced into Europe by Lord Petre in 1739, and the work includes Japanese, Chinese and English-bred varieties. Beautiful evergreen shrubs, sometimes growing into small trees, they are found in eastern and southern Asia, from the Himalayas east to Japan and Indonesia. The best known species, albeit not necessarily known consciously, is the Camellia sinensis, the tea plant, of major commercial importance because tea is made from its leaves. While the finest teas are produced by C. sinensis thanks to millennia of selective breeding of this species, many other camellias can be used to produce a similar beverage. For example, in some parts of Japan, tea made from C. sasanqua leaves is popular. Intended to be a two-volume work, the second volume was never published.

        Narrative of a Voyage to the Pacific and Beering's Strait...

      Ã¬One of the Most Valuable of Modern VoyagesîBEECHEY, Captain F[rederick] W[illiam]. Narrative of a Voyage to the Pacific and Beeringís Strait, to Co-Operate with the Polar Expeditions: Performed in His Majesty's Ship Blossom, under the Command of Captain F.W. Beechey, R.N....in the Years 1825, 26, 27, 28. Published by Authority of the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty. In Two Parts. London: Henry Colburn and Richard Bentley, 1831.First edition. Two quarto volumes (10 3/4 x 8 3/8 inches; 273 x 212 mm), [not to be confused with the octavo edition of the same year]. [iii]-xxi, [1, errata], [1, directions to the binder], [1, blank], 392; [iii]-vii, [1, directions to the binder], [393]-742 pp. Bound without the publisherís advertisements ([2] pp.) at the end of Volume II, and bound without half-titles. Three engraved maps, two of which are folding, and twenty-three engraved plates.Contemporary diced calf, rebacked to style. Boards ruled in gilt. Each volume with red and black spine labels. Spines stamped and lettered in gilt. Board edges stamped in gilt. All edges marbled. The Frank S. Streeter copy with his bookplate on front pastedown of both volumes. A bit of spotting and offsetting. Front hinge of volume I professionally repaired. A 3/4-inch closed tear to outer margin of b4 in volume I, not affecting text. Boards with a few light scrapes and spots. Overall a very good, handsome set. Housed together in a slipcase.ìBeecheyís assignment was primarily to meet Captain Perry and Sir John Franklin on the west shore of Bering Strait and bring home one or both of them. They were searching for a Northwest Passage north of the Arctic Circle. However, before reaching Bering Strait, Beechey was to go to Rio de Janeiro, around Cape Horn, and call at Easter Island, Tahiti, and Pitcairn Island. Chapters II and III contain the story of the mutiny on the Bounty, as related by James Adams, the surviving mutineer; also the description of the Blossomís, Captain Beecheyís ship, stay at Pitcairn Islandî (Lada-Mocarski).ìCaptain Beechey [1796-1856], near Point Barrow, Alaska, and Sir John Franklin had arrived within fifty leagues of each other when the latter was compelled by weather to return. Beecheyís book is one of the most valuable of modern voyages and relates to extensive visits to Pitcairn Island, the Tuamotu Archipelago, the Society Islands and Tahiti, Alaska, Hawaii, Macao, Okinawa, and the coast of California. His book provides an important account of Monterey and San Francisco before the American conquest and gives his impressions of the missionaries in San Francisco. Beechey describes the Eskimos of the north and relates his meeting with John Adams, last survivor of the mutiny on the Bounty, who gave Beechey a lengthy account. In the course of this voyage, Beechey discovered several islands in the Pacificî (Hill).ìBeechey arrived in San Francisco on November 7, 1826. He remained about a month in California, returning in 1827 for another monthís stay. He gives a description of San Francisco harbor and tells of the sad state of affairs of both mission and presidio. He claimed that the soldiers and clergy were dissatisfied with conditions in California (the pay of the garrison was many years in arrears). He described the treatment of mission Indians and the hunting of the wild ones, the latterís mode of life as taken from the journals of Spanish officers. He also visited Monterey. Beechey remarked about meeting a gentleman belonging to the American Fur Company. ëOne of the depots, we are informed by a gentleman belonging to the establishment, whom we met at Monterey in 1827, is situated on the western side of the Rocky mountains on a fork of a stream of the Columbia called Lewis river, near the source of a stream supposed to be the Colorado.í Could this have been Jedediah Smith? He was at Monterey and San Francisco during Beecheyís stay. On November 22, 1827, due to pressing business, he declined an invitation to dine on board the Blossom.

        Traité de láusculation médiate, et des maladies des poumons et du coeur. 3 Bde.

      Troisième Èdition, Augmentée de Notes par Mériadec Laennec. - Paris, J.S. Claudé, 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 Traité de l'auscultation médiate were published during Laennec's lifetime, the third edition (1831) was published by his cousin, Mériadec Laennec with his notes, and the fourth edition (1837) by Andral (1797-1876) with his notes. Forbes's translation of Laennec's Traité 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

Le moraliste infléchit le thème de la perfectibilité humaine en une direction spirituelle et livre d’amples vues sur l’histoire de l’humanité et son devenir: une évolution continue, à la fois anthropologique et spirituelle, qui conduirait au triomphe du pur esprit. Et de conclure que le devoir essentiel de l'homme résiderait à préparer cet avènement. Ce n'est qu'en 1833 que les romantiques, à la suite de Sainte-Beuve, s'aviseront de découvrir en l'auteur 'd'Oberman' (1804) le héraut du mal du siècle. (Merlant, ‘Bibliogr. des œuvres de Senancour’, p. 31-48). Papier jauni. Page de titre à la date de 1831 et couverture de 1834. Bon exemplaire entièrement non rogné, tel que paru sous sa couverture d’origine imprimée [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Eigenh. Empfehlungsschreiben mit U.

      London, 2. VI. 1831. - 2 SS. 8vo. Empfehlungsschreiben an einen befreundeten General für den finnischen Militär, Abenteurer und Philhellenen Hauptmann August Maximilian Myhrberg (1797-1867). Überschwenglich schildert Fabvier die Verdienste seines langjährigen Schützlings im griechischen Unabhängigkeitskrieg, eines "intrepide et un homme de premier rang": "Le sousigné declare que Mr. Myrberg, suedois, a servé sous mes ordres en Grece avec [.] une bravoure et un desinterressement digne les plus grandes eloges, qu'ayant voulu des son arrivée en 1824 donnes le noble et utile exemple de s'ebraller comme simple Cavalier il aquir touts les grades jusqu'à celui de Capitaine par son seul merite, enfin que tous les etrangers qui ont servi sous mes Ordres en Grèce, nul mieux que Mr. Myrberg n'a mérité l'estime et l'amité des habitantes des Soldats [.]". - Der finnische Militär A. M. Myhrberg, einer von nur zwei gebürtigen Finnen, die für die griechische Sache fochten, trat zunächst ins schwedische Heer ein, ließ sich dann in Marseille von Fabviers Kavallerieregiment rekrutieren und verbrachte die Jahre 1825-31 als Freiheitskämpfer in Griechenland; anderthalb Jahre lang war er Kommandant des Palamidi, der strategisch wichtigen Festung von Nauplia. In seiner Heimat erfuhr er im Zusammenhang mit der nationalen Erweckung Finnlands noch zu Lebzeiten geradezu kultische Verehrung: "The legend of his life, especially in relation to Philhellenism, was linked to Finnish national awakening particularly during the latter part of the nineteenth century. Myhrberg's life was harnessed for the use of Finland's own nation-building in which there was a need for exemplary men who had fought for great ideas, in particular for freedom [.] Myhrberg became, indeed, one of the most legendary figures in early modern Finnish history [.] In the distant countries Myhrberg made the power of Finland, that terra incognita, known to everybody" (Petra Pakkanen, "The Role of Philhellenism and the Image of Greece in 19th-Century Nation-Building of Finland", in: E. Konstantinou [Hg.], Das Bild Griechenlands im Spiegel der Völker [Frankfurt 2008], S. 61-88, hier: S. 68f., 77). - Charles Nicolas Fabvier diente unter Napoleon auf den verschiedensten Schauplätzen der Koalitionskriege. Große Verdienste erwarb er sich ab 1823 im griechischen Unabhängigkeitskrieg, an dem Frankreich aus wirtschaftlichen Gründen teilnahm, bei der Disziplinierung des griechischen Heeres. Infolge von Misstrauen und Eifersucht seiner griechischen Vorgesetzten, die ihm die Übergabe der Athener Akropolis 1827 zur Last legten, nahm er 1828 seinen Abschied. Er begleitete im November die Morea-Expedition, beteiligte sich an der Julirevolution und wurde zum Chef des Generalstabs der Pariser Nationalgarde ernannt. 1831 legte er dieses Amt nieder.

        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.

Original Hardcover, recently beautifully rebacked with gilt lettering on spine. Very good condition with only minor signs of wear. Few small library stamps (discarded). Also with a contribution by Darwin in the section "Letter to the editor" (Darwin responds to an article "Leaves injured at Night by free radiation" - James Clerk Maxwell FRS FRSE (13 June 1831 5 November 1879) was a Scottish scientist in the field of mathematical physics. His most notable achievement was to formulate the classical theory of electromagnetic radiation, bringing together for the first time electricity, magnetism, and light as manifestations of the same phenomenon. Maxwell's equations for electromagnetism have been called the "second great unification in physics" after the first one realised by Isaac Newton. With the publication of "A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field" in 1865, Maxwell demonstrated that electric and magnetic fields travel through space as waves moving at the speed of light. Maxwell proposed that light is an undulation in the same medium that is the cause of electric and magnetic phenomena. The unification of light and electrical phenomena led to the prediction of the existence of radio waves. Maxwell helped develop the MaxwellBoltzmann distribution, a statistical means of describing aspects of the kinetic theory of gases. He is also known for presenting the first durable colour photograph in 1861 and for his foundational work on analysing the rigidity of rod-and-joint frameworks (trusses) like those in many bridges. His discoveries helped usher in the era of modern physics, laying the foundation for such fields as special relativity and quantum mechanics. Many physicists regard Maxwell as the 19th-century scientist having the greatest influence on 20th-century physics. His contributions to the science are considered by many to be of the same magnitude as those of Isaac Newton and Albert Einstein. In the millennium poll a survey of the 100 most prominent physicists Maxwell was voted the third greatest physicist of all time, behind only Newton and Einstein. On the centenary of Maxwell's birthday, Einstein described Maxwell's work as the "most profound and the most fruitful that physics has experienced since the time of Newton". (Wikipedia)

        La confession

      1831 - - 1831, 18,6x15,4cm et 19,5x29,5cm, dessin au lavis et lithographie. - Dessin original au lavis d'Alfred Johannot, étude intitulée La Confession pour une lithographie publiée dans le tome 2 de L'Artiste (22e livraison). Jointe : une épreuve lithographiée du dessin (un peu piquée) réalisée par J. Lion et Bichebois l'aîné, signée Alfred Johannot pinx. dans l'angle inférieur gauche, et J. Lion lith. dans l'angle inférieur droit. Alfred Johannot travaille avec ses frères Tony et Charles en tant qu'illustrateur, graveur et vignettiste. Les frères Johannot occupent une grande place dans l'histoire du livre illustré romantique pour leur travail sur des oeuvres célèbres de Walter Scott, Beaumarchais, Bernardin de Saint-Pierre ou encore Goethe, mais aussi pour de nombreux livrets d'opéra comique et de vaudeville. Ils contribuent par ailleurs largement à l'illustration des nouvelles parues dans l'hebdomadaire L'Artiste, créé en 1831. Cette revue de beaux-arts et de littérature est un incontournable de la littérature romantique et un rendez-vous d'artistes, de critiques et de gens de lettres. Elle publie le Colonel Chabert de Balzac, des articles de Chateaubriand ou encore George Sand, et reçoit la participation de Delacroix entre autres. Parue sous la forme d'un cahier d'une quinzaine de pages, son frontispice est signé Tony Johannot et de jeunes artistes comme Decamps ou Raffet y collaborent et lui donnent une teinte très romantique. Ce dessin provient de la collection d'Aristide Marie (1862-1938), essayiste, spcialiste de Gérard de Nerval, et grand collectionneur des œuvres d'Alfred et Tony Johannot, à qui il consacra un ouvrage (Alfred et Tony Johannot, Paris, H. Floury, 1925, 124 p.). Il réalise par ailleurs des essais sur d'autres peintres et lithographes romantiques, dont Celestin Nanteuil et Henry Monnier. La majorité des oeuvres Johannot de ce fonds est désormais entreposée au Musée de la vie romantique à Paris.

His sons also joined him in his photography business - Oskar, with a studio in Libau ., Arthur, in Dorpat (Tartu, Estonia); and Eduard in Riga - the pictures of scenes of Riga from the late 19th and early 20th century attributed to C.

        The Virginia Housewife: or, Methodical Cook

      Baltimore, MD: Plaskitt & Cugle, 1831."Stereotype edition with amendments and additions," Copyright 1828; preface dated 1831. Full leather over boards; slightly raised bands on spine with gilt stamped title in panel and gilt stamped horizontal rules. 12mo, 180 pp. Book Condition: The front cover board is detached. There are two old newspaper clippings affixed with glue - one to the front eppr, the other to the title page. Otherwise, the book is complete with all the recipes, no tears though the pages are age toned and foxed. (please see photos)About the book:The Virginia Housewife is considered by some to be the first truly American cookbook and by all to be the first regional American cookbook. Upon its first appearance in 1824 it was an immediate success and it was republished at least nineteen times before the outbreak of the Civil War. It contains a number of Southern specialties, some appearing in print for the first time: Ochra Soup, Catfish Soup, Barbecued Shote (""This is the name given in the southern states to a fat young hog""), Curry of Catfish, Ochra and Tomatoes; Gumbo (""A West India Dish""), Chicken Pudding (""A Favourite Virginia Dish""), Field Peas, Apoquiniminc Cakes (a form of beaten biscuits). Clearly we are in the South. But Mrs. Randolph knew about much more than Southern cooking; she includes recipes from England, France, Spain, the East Indies, the West Indies and New England (Dough Nuts - A Yankee Cake), among others.

        Account of the steps taken, in England, with a view to the establishment of an academical

      institution, or college, in New South Wales : and to demonstrate the practicability of effecting an extensive emigration of the industrious classes from the mother country to that colony. Sydney : Printed by Stephens and Stokes, 1831. Octavo, old marbled wrappers, pp 27, first 2 leaves with minor creasing flaws, light foxing, pale water stain to top edges; a good copy. A scarce pamphlet in which Lang puts forward his ambitious plan for the establishment of the Australian College in Sydney, to be based on the principles of the Scottish school system. The response was positive and the College was opened in 1831, the year the pamphlet was published. The College was successful for a little over two decades, until its closure in 1854. Lang includes in the pamphlet a list of items that have been donated for the use of pupils of the College, among them the complete works of Bentham, a gift of the famous philosopher and social reformer himself. There is also an early mention of Lang's involvement in a scheme for emigration to Australia.
