        A Dictionary of the English Language.

      London: Black, Young, and Young,, 1831-32. Reprinted by E. H. Barker... from a copy communicated by the author, and containing many manuscript corrections and additions: with an appendix by the editor. Two volumes, quarto (267 × 208 mm). Contemporary full calf recently rebacked to style, two-line gilt border on sides, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Printed in triple-columns. Armorial bookplates of Edward Weyman Wadeson (1792-1884), a notary public in Doctors' Commons and a vice-president of the Foundling Hospital. A few scrapes to bindings, vertical crease to title page of volume II. An attractive copy. First UK edition of the dictionary that almost at once became, and has remained, the standard English dictionary in the United States. Webster wanted to stress the political separation from Britain by the cultivation of a distinct American language, and so, under the influence of his friend Benjamin Franklin, turned his attention to "a reformed mode of spelling" and gave many printed American words their distinctive appearance. "[T]he book marked a definite advance in modern lexicography, as it included many non-literary terms and paid great attention to the language actually spoken. Moreover, his definitions of the meanings of words were accurate and concise (Sir James Murray, editor of the Oxford English Dictionary, called him 'a born definer of words') and have for the greater part stood the test of time superbly well. In fact, Webster succeeded in breaking the fetters imposed upon American English by Dr Johnson, to the ultimate benefit of the living languages of both countries" (PMM). The dictionary's English editor was the classical scholar Edmund Henry Barker (1788-1839), who carried on a lengthy correspondence with Webster.

      1831-1836 1831 - Manuscrit de 2 volumes in-4 de 850 pp., veau tabac plats finement quadrillés sous étui pour le premier volume, portefeuille sous étui à soufflet, veau tabac finement quadrillé, dos orné, triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats pour le volume de Supplément (reliure de l'époque signée Alphonse Giroux). Manuscrit autographe des poésies du vicomte Villiers du Terrage partiellement publié en 1834 sous le titre Loisirs d'un ancien magistrat suivi en 1836 d'une seconde édition publiée sous le titre Poésies morales et historiques. L'auteur a placé en tête de son recueil cet avertissement daté de mai 1836 : « Quoique beaucoup de mes vers aient été imprimés, je n'en recommande pas moins ces manuscrits à mes enfans. Ces portefeuilles, en outre de beaucoup de pièces que par ménagement je n'ai pas publiées, contiennent les plus souvent ma pensée primitive et intime. Si cette version est quelquefois un peu brute et négligée, elle compense ces défauts par une franchise et une vigueur d'expression que je n'aurai pas pu me permettre, dans les vers que j'ai mis au jour, sans soulever des tempêtes autour de moi. Paris le huit mai 1836. Vte de Villiers du Terrage. » Après avoir servi dans l'armée pendant les premières années de la République, Paul-Étienne vicomte Villiers du Terrage (1774-1858) embrassa en 1795 la carrière administrative, occupa sous l'Empire différents emplois puis fut, sous la Restauration, préfet des Pyrénées orientales, du Doubs et du Gard. Il fut élevé à la Pairie par Louis-Philippe en 1837. La révolution de 1848 mit fin à sa carrière politique. Frontispice sur Chine gravé par Marckl d'après Tony Johannot. Manuscrit d'une grande lisibilité dans une reliure signée Alphonse Giroux (1775-1848), libraire-relieur qui participa à l'exposition de 1827 où il obtint une médaille d'argent. En plus des reliures, Giroux réalisa de nombreux albums, portefeuilles et autres sous-main. Son magasin-atelier se trouvait au 7 rue du Coq-Saint-Honoré. Flety, Dictionnaire des relieurs, 82.

        Handbuch der Naturgeschichte aller Vögel Deutschlands worin nach den sorgfältigsten Untersuchungen und den genauesten Beobachtungen mehr als 900 einheimische Vögel-Gattungen zur Begründung einer ganz neuen Ansicht und Behandlung ihrer Naturgeschichte vollständig beschrieben sind.

      - Ilmenau, Voigt, 1831. 8vo (205 x 125mm). pp. xxiv, 1085, (3), with 47 hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, spine with gilt lettered red label (hinges skilfully repaired). The rare first edition of "a classic treatise on mid-European avifauna" (Wood 255). "In Folge eingehendster Specialkenntniss (erfuhr) die Grundlage des Systems, der Begriff der Art, eine Erweiterung insofern B. die Art schon als eine höhere systematische Gruppe fasste und die übereinstimmenden Individuen als Subspecies vereinigte." (Carus 710). "In this handbook, Brehm's chief work, the author gives his opinion on the system of Linnaeus, which is rejected as being too unnatural. The birds are divided into 23 orders which are again subdivided into genera, 'species', and 'subspecies' (Gattungen), by which the author understands birds resembling each other and mating with each other; whereas birds belonging to the same 'species' certainly bear a great resemblance to each other in most respects, but do not regularly mate with each other. Thus he went a step further than any other contemporary ornithologist in the division of birds into species" (Anker 66). The fine plates are after drawings by Bädeker and Th. Götz and engraved by W. Müller.Nissen IVB, 140; Anker 105; Zimmer I, 90. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Paula Mariana starb schon 1833, Dom Pedro II. wurde 1831 zum Kaiser von Brasilien ernannt.

        The Life of Thomas Muir, Esq. Advocate... who was tried for sedition before the High Court of Judiciary in Scotland, and sentenced to Transportation for Fourteen Years..

      Glasgow: W.R. McPhun, Trongate; Simpkin & Marshall, London, 1831. Rubbed, a few spots and stains but generally good.. Octavo, with a silhouette portrait as frontispiece, old half calf, y. Scarce: the standard memoir of the 18th-century Scottish martyr. Thomas Muir was the most famous of the so-called "Scottish Martyrs" sentenced to transportation after free speech trials in Scotland. Together with his unfortunate fellow exiles he arrived in Sydney on the Surprize in October 1794. Muir lived quietly on a small farm on the North Shore opposite Sydney Cove, but in early 1796 caused a furore by taking advantage of the arrival of the American-registered fur-trader the Otter to escape English imprisonment. After an extraordinary series of adventures in America he eventually reached Paris in 1797 where he "assisted the Directoire on a proposal to invade England and worked on a lengthy manuscript account of his exile and subsequent travels…" (Wantrup). In 1799 he died in poverty.Ferguson recorded three copies of the book in Australian libraries, those originally owned by Dixson, Mitchell and himself.

        Original watercolour view of the coast of Jamaica with the Blue Mountains in the background and two fishing boats in the foreground.

      Jamaica: , 1831. Watercolour and ink on paper (90 × 380 mm), titled in pencil "Blue Mt. Jamaica" in the lower right corner; mounted on contemporary grey card mount (440 × 555 mm) with wash-line, and titled, initialled and dated in reddish ink "Blue Mountain, Jamaica, 1831, J.E.A.", window-mounted, framed and glazed. Mount a little soiled and with a few minor chips, but the sketch itself clean and overall in very good condition. A highly evocative watercolour view of the Jamaican coastline with the famed Blue Mountains, the longest mountain range of the island, in the background. Sir James Alexander, the artist, noted the grandeur of this very scene in the published version of his travels: "After a week's run we sighted afar off the dim outline of part of St. Domingo, and then the lofty mountains near Point Morant, the eastern cape of Jamaica. It was a magnificent scene, this part of the island; the Blue Mountains, eight thousand feet high, towered above a stratum of clouds, and the rugged hills below them were furrowed by ravines; we could see no level land, but the steep cliffs descended abruptly into the sea, on which were one or two small coasting vessels. As we approached nearer, we observed that the hills were not altogether barren, black forests were upon their sides, and patches of bright emerald green, and white houses, were seen as we ran along the south coast towards Port Royal" (Transatlantic Sketches, Comprising Visits to the Most Interesting Scenes in North and South America, and the West Indies Â… 1833. 2 vols. vol. I. p.285). Alexander (1803-1855) was a British army officer and a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society. He served in India, Persia, South Africa, Canada, New Zealand, participated in the First Anglo-Burmese War, and Crimean War. It was he who "saved Cleopatra's Needle from destruction, and had much to do with its transfer to England in 1877. At its base he buried, among other artefacts, photographs of the twelve best-looking English women of the day. His extensive travels provided material for his varied publications, which included Travels from India to England (1827) and Cleopatra's Needle (1879)" (ODNB). In 1831, in the rank of Captain of 42nd Royal Highlanders, Alexander travelled to British Guiana, West Indies, United States and Canada. In South America he went up the Essequibo River, in the West Indies extensively travelled around Barbados, Tobago, Trinidad, Grenada, St. Vincent, Jamaica "with its blue mountains, fertile savannahs, and deadly lagoons" and Cuba. Then he sailed to New Orleans and went up the Mississippi to Memphis, through Tennessee and Kentucky to Louisville and the Falls of Ohio. After that he went to Virginia, visited Lake Erie, Niagara Falls, crossed Lake Ontario to York (Upper Canada), saw Kingston, Ottawa and along St. Lawrence River went to Quebec, before moving on to to New York, Washington, where met the President, Boston, from there returning to Liverpool. Alexander "volunteered to execute commissions" for Royal Geographical Society and "other literary and scientific individuals" regarding places he visited and was very interested in the problems of "slavery, military matters, state of society and manners" (from the Preface). The present watercolour was certainly intended to be an illustration for his Transatlantic Sketches, but was not included in the final publication, the Caribbean being represented by views of St. Vincent and Havana.

A fine set.Daniel Defoe(1660-1731) was an English trader, writer, journalist, pamphleteer, and spy, most famous for his novel Robinson Crusoe. Defoe is noted for being one of the earliest proponents of the novel, as he helped to popularize the form in Britain with others such as Samuel Richardson, and is among the founders of the English novel. He was a prolific and versatile writer, producing more than five hundred books, pamphlets, and journals on various topics, including politics, crime, religion, marriage, psychology, and the supernatural. He was also a pioneer of economic journalism. The first edition of Robinson Crusoe was published on 25 April 1719. The novel credited the work's protagonist Robinson Crusoe as its author, leading many readers to believe he was a real person and the book a travelogue of true incidents. It was published under the full title The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, Of York, Mariner: Who lived Eight and Twenty Years, all alone in an un-inhabited Island on the Coast of America, near the Mouth of the Great River of Oroonoque; Having been cast on Shore by Shipwreck, wherein all the Men perished but himself.

OPERA RARISSIMA DA TROVARSI SUL MERCATO SOPRATTUTTO COMPLETA DI QUSI TUTTO IL PUBBLICATO NELLE BROSSURE ORIGINALI. Begründer der "Dynastie" von Kupferstechern und Verlegern der Familie Tyroff war Martin Tyroff (1705-1758). Es bestand anfangs sogar eine enge Verbindung zu dem Siebmacherschen Wappenwerk. Denn eine Tochter von Weigel (vgl. Weigelsches Wappenbuch) hatte Johann Kenckel (1688-1722) geheiratet, und dessen Schwiegersohn war Martin Tyroff. Dieser gab im Jahr 1753 das erste Supplement zum "Alten Siebmacher" heraus. Sein Sohn Johann David Tyroff (geb. ca. 1730) brachte Supplement 2 (1759), Supplement 3 (1765) und die ersten Tafeln von Supplement 4 (1767) heraus. Die Familie Tyroff, zu der noch Hermann Jakob (geb. um 1742, Sohn von Martin) und dessen Sohn Konrad (gest. 1826) gehörten, trennte sich aber vom Siebmacher-Projekt und publizierte ab 1791 bis zum Ende des 19. Jh. in Nürnberg ihre eigene Serie der Tyroffschen Wappenbücher. Ihre Wappenbücher unterscheiden sich von den Siebmacherschen erstens durch die landschaftliche Gliederung der Serien und zweitens durch die viel geringere Anzahl von Wappen pro Seite, denn die meisten Tafeln enthalten jeweils nur ein besonders liebevoll und entsprechend groß gestochenes Wappen. Die Farben werden durch Schraffuren angegeben. Genealogische Angaben fehlen jedoch durchweg in den Tyroffschen Wappenbüchern. Formato: 8 v. (2, VIII, 100 c. di tav.; 2, IV, 100 c. di tav.; 2, IV, 100 c. di tav.; 2, IV, 100 c. di tav.; 2, IV, 100 c. di tav.; 2, IV, 100 c. di tav.; 2, IV, 100 c. di tav.; 2, IV, 100 c. di tav.), 22 cm, brossura originale per ciascun volume. Buono, ordinari segni d’uso e del tempo, mancanze ai dorsi e piccoli difetti alle brossure, qualche annotazione non recente a matita di uno studioso d'araldica con qualche schizzo di stemmi nobiliari.

A fine set.Daniel Defoe(1660-1731) was an English trader, writer, journalist, pamphleteer, and spy, most famous for his novel Robinson Crusoe. Defoe is noted for being one of the earliest proponents of the novel, as he helped to popularize the form in Britain with others such as Samuel Richardson, and is among the founders of the English novel. He was a prolific and versatile writer, producing more than five hundred books, pamphlets, and journals on various topics, including politics, crime, religion, marriage, psychology, and the supernatural. He was also a pioneer of economic journalism. The first edition of Robinson Crusoe was published on 25 April 1719. The novel credited the work's protagonist Robinson Crusoe as its author, leading many readers to believe he was a real person and the book a travelogue of true incidents. It was published under the full title The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, Of York, Mariner: Who lived Eight and Twenty Years, all alone in an un-inhabited Island on the Coast of America, near the Mouth of the Great River of Oroonoque; Having been cast on Shore by Shipwreck, wherein all the Men perished but himself. With An Account how he was at last as strangely deliver'd by Pyrates.

        Gran Logia Nacion Mexicana, y pira de los Yorkinos.

      [colophon: Mexico: Oficina del C. Alejandro Valdes Folio (31.5 cm; 12.25"). 4 pp.. ca. 1831] Satirical pamphlet concerning the loss of political influence of the Yorkino (Yorquino) branch of Masonry in Mexico and the ascendancy of the Scottish branch — and concomitantly of Gen. Santa Anna. The text is in double-column format below a large copper engraving that is renowned as => one of the earliest politico-satirical "cartoons" created and printed in Mexico. Unsigned, this is entitled "El Torrente Flegueton" and features skeletons, bats, a demon, harpies, etc. The text supposedly describes the elaborate final funeral pyre that the Yorkinos constructed in the shape of a Solomonic temple with statues, each element of which is explained poetically via either an "oda," romancillo, "decima, or "anacreontica." On the scarcity of early Mexican politico-satirical engravings and woodcuts, Helia Bonilla writes, "Interesa también señalar que, entre la muy escasa producción de estampas satíricas que circularon durante la época, hay al menos otras tres que salieron de la imprenta de Valdés" and => this is one of those three. As to the date of printing, the Sutro library assigns [1832?], the British Library [1834?], and several Mexican scholars opt for ca. 1828. 1834 is impossible as Valdes died in 1832. We suspect the date to be 1830 to 1832. Searches of NUC, WorldCat, COPAC, CCPB, and the OPACs of the Mexican National Library and CONDUMEX locate one copy in the U.S., one in Britain, and one in Spain. Folded as issued, apparently never sewn or bound in a volume; old repairs to fore- and upper inner margins not touching text or image. Eight pin-type wormholes in margins and and text, costing nine letters but certainly not impairing ability to read and understand; some age-toning, soiling, and scattered bug-spotting. Overall, a rather good copy of an uncommon and important item.

At first he experimented on rabbits, but the work was difficult and yielded ambiguous results. Consequently he continued his investigation on frogs, the use of which in the laboratory had almost entirely ceased. In the frog the spinal cord was far easier to remove, the relationships between the nerve roots were much more apparent, and the results unambiguous and always reproducible. Cutting through the posterior roots leading to a hind leg, he found that the limb became insensible but was not paralyzed. When he cut through the anterior roots, however, he observed that the limb was paralyzed but not rendered insensible. The simplicity, conclusiveness, and memorableness of the experiment - which has been repeated countless times in physiology courses - made a marked impression on Müller's contemporaries. To be sure, Müller, who was driven by ambition throughout his life, did not hesitate to make his experiment widely known. In that very year (1831) he reproduced it in Paris for Cuvier and Humboldt and, in Heidelberg, for Tiedemann. He also had his friend Anders Retzius perform the experiment in Stockholm" (DSB). - Vereinzelt etwas stockfleckig.

        Double Investigation of the Southern Polar Ocean and the Voyage Around the World 1819-1821 - Reprint

      1831 - St Petersburg As a prominent cartographer, Bellingshausen was appointed to command the Russian circumnavigation of the globe in 1819-1821, intended to explore the Southern Ocean and to find land in the proximity of the South Pole. The expedition was prepared by Mikhail Lazarev, who was made Bellingshausen's second-in-command and the captain of the sloop Mirny, while Bellingshausen himself commanded the sloop Vostok. During this expedition Bellingshausen and Lazarev became the first explorers to see the land of Antarctica on 28 January 1820 (New Style). They managed to twice circumnavigate the continent and never lost each other from view. Thus they disproved Captain Cook's assertion that it was impossible to find land in the southern ice-fields. The expedition discovered and named Peter I Island, Zavodovski, Leskov and Visokoi Islands, the Antarctic Peninsula and Alexander Island (Alexander Coast), and made other discoveries in the tropical waters of the Pacific.

        Troisième mémoire sur l'emploi de l'iode dans les maladies scrofuleuses. [Précédé de] Mémoire sur l'emploi de l'opium joint à l'iode, dans la scrofule cutané par Th. Le masson

      1831 - [2]-49 et XI-219 pages Paris, J.B. Baillière, 1831, in-8, [2]-49 et XI-219 pages, cartonnage moderne à la bradel, Deux ouvrages rares défendant l'usage thérapeutique de l'iode dans le traitement de la scrofule, contesté à l'époque. A la fin de son troisième (et dernier) mémoire sur le sujet, le célèbre Dr Lugol délivre un "précis sur l'art de formuler les préparations iodurées" et donne la composition de la solution qui porte son nom: c'est l’efficacité de cette "solution de Lugol" que son ancien élève à l'hôpital Saint-Louis, Lemasson, éprouve dans son mémoire. Avec une certaine amertume, ce dernier accuse par ailleurs son maître, "poussé par des considérations dont [il] ne [peut] soupçonner le motif", de lui avoir refusé l'accès à ses propres travaux, fruit de deux ans d’observations dans le département des scrofuleux. A la solution de base, Lemasson joignit de l'opium, dans un premier temps afin de calmer les douleurs intolérables qui résultaient de l'application de la pommade; tout en reconnaissant les vertus du mélange de Lugol, Lemasson vante l'efficacité de son traitement ioduro-opiacé: "pour les cas de scrofule ulcéreuse, l'union de l'opium à l'iode donne aux préparations iodurées une vertu qu'elles n'avaient pas, soit qu'il agisse par ses propriétés toniques, soit qu'il agisse par ses propriétés, depuis longtemps connues, de diminuer les secrétions, soit enfin que le mariage de ces deux médicaments héroïques exalte encore leurs qualités intrinsèques". Lugol (1788-1851) fit de d'importantes observations dans la classification et le traitement de la tuberculose. Il recommandait également l'emploi de l'iode dans le traitement du goitre et de la syphilis. Heirs of Hippocrates, n° 839. Waller n° 6081.

Contemporary black half calf, marbled sides, raised gilt bands to spine, recent morocco label lettered gilt, edges sprinkled red. Frontispieces and vignette title pages. Faint ownership signature to front pastedown. Some judicious restoration and refurbishment at the extremities, the joints, and the boards, a few light marks and spotting to contents, a little nibbling to foot of front endpapers and head of first few pages. An excellent copy. Third edition, the final definitive text and the first edition to be illustrated. Mary Shelley incorporated most of the changes introduced by William Godwin into the 1823 second edition as well as numerous other revisions, including an entirely new chapter and the famous "Introduction" in which she elaborates the tale of the novel's genesis at the nocturnal storytelling session with Shelley, Byron and Polidori at the Villa Diodati. Mary lived for a further 20 years, but the 1831 edition is her final text revision. The frontispiece is the first visual depiction of Frankenstein and the Creature. The novel was issued in Bentley's Standard Novels Series, with the final third of the text in the volume printing the first part of The Ghost-Seer, which is completed in a second volume, that is more often than not lacking, as here.

Albrecht Daniel Thaer (1752 - 1828) est considéré comme l'un des fondateurs de l'agronomie. Son père étant médecin, il part étudier la médecine à Göttingen, obtient le grade de docteur. Sa thèse, Dessertatio de actiones nervorum est longtemps considéré comme un ouvrage de référence. Désirant approfondir ses connaissances en philosophie, Thaer se rend à Oxford et devient bientôt le médecin personnel de George III. Découvrant l'histoire naturelle, il fait de nombreux voyages en Angleterre et surtout en Écosse où il commence à s'intéresser aux problèmes d'agriculture. En 1794, il publie une introduction à l'agriculture anglaise qui suscite un grand intérêt en Allemagne. A la mort de son père, il décide d'abandonner la médecine et de se retirer dans sa propriété de Celle. Là, il y fonde en 1802, le premier laboratoire expérimental agricole allemand (aujourd'hui les jardins Thaer). Il commence également la publication d'une revue consacrée à l'agriculture et à ses problèmes. En 1806, fonde la première académie agricole allemande qui devient un modèle en Europe. En 1810, il devient professeur d'agronomie à l'université de Berlin. relié Bon état

        Observations upon the prophecies of Daniel.

      London: James Nisbet, &T. Stevenson, Cambridge 8vo (23.5 cm; 9"). [1] f., xii, 250 pp.. 1831 Third edition. In addition to being a physicist, mathematician, and natural philosopher, Sir Isaac Newton was something of a Biblical scholar as well, as shown by the present exegesis on apocalyptic texts. His analysis generally reads as being practical in nature — as the New Catholic Encyclopedia (X, 428) says, "Newton's writings on apocalyptical prophecies were not mystical or millenarian in any sense, but more exercises in deciphering cryptograms." They comport with our sense of him as someone who believed in the scientific method! "A new edition, with the citations translated, and notes by P. Borthwick . . . of Downing College, Cambridge. Publisher's quarter green cloth with paper-covered boards. Rebacked in sympathetic cloth and new paper label (antique style) applied. Boards show age-stains and wear but are solid. Old library pressure-stamp on title-page. In an open back slipcase of green library cloth; spine of box with author, title, and call number in gilt. A nice copy, sound for reading.
