         JULES FERRY - Lettre autographe signée la reconstruction après la guerre de 1870

      - Jules FERRY (1832 - 1893), homme politique français Manuscrit autographe signé. 20 janvier 1875 ; 4 pages grand in-folio, bords effrangés. Rapport de Jules Ferry à la Commission des Communications, manuscrit de travail comportant ratures et corrections. Après les désastres de la guerre de 1870, des difficultés d’organisation, un mauvais système d’économie et la suppression de certaines voies de communications passées en territoire allemand, ont amené l’appauvrissement progressif des routes et chemin de fer dans les départements concernés. Avant de passer en revue les prévisions pour l’avenir, Jules Ferry jette un coup d’œil d’ensemble sur les années passées : réalisations et coûts, qu’il compare avec les établissements prévus ou en cours, tout en tenant compte de la longueur plus importante des nouveaux services. Il en résulte pour le département des Vosges une économie de 0.046 frs par mètre. Pour être équitable, précise l’homme politique, il faut faire entrer en ligne de compte l’augmentation des salaires et l’augmentation des matériaux. En fait d’économie, Jules Ferry estime qu’on ne peut raisonnablement en faire sans nuire aux collaborateurs des services privés. Malgré ces résultats satisfaisants, Jules Ferry juge prudent de présenter, en regard des résultats, les prévisions pour l’année car les chiffres ne sont pas immobiles et selon les besoins, réclamations et la nécessité d’achever certains réseaux, il faut s’attendre à une dépense croissante, soit, pour le département, 869 000 frs, chiffre formidable si l’on considère le budget de 1 181 468 frs du budget ordinaire. Le ministre examine donc les modifications susceptibles d’être apportées à certaines habitudes et soumet cet ensemble à la discussion. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

         The Minstrelsy of the woods; or, sketches and songs connected with the Natural History of some of the most interesting british and foreign Birds. London. Harvey and Darton 1832.

      1832. In 8, leg. coeva in t.tela verde, tassello in pelle nera con titolo e fregi in oro, ex-libris dell'artista e ufficiale neo-zelandese: Col. Benjamin Aylott Branfill (1828-1899) sul primo foglio di risguardo, sul quale vi è pure la firma della moglie (Mary Anna Miers) del colonnello; pp.XI-(1)-227-(1); 17 graziose tavv. di uccelli, opportunamente ambientate, inc. in rame, finemente colorate a mano all'epoca, ogni tavola è protetta da velina. Ottimo e assai raro esemplare. Casey Wood, p. 619. Fine Bird Books, p.113. Mullens/Swann, p.612 (danno un numero di tavv. errato: 18) Edizione unica di un raro trattato ornitologico del primo Ottocento. Non si conosce nulla dell'Autrice, indubbiamente esperta, non solo di poesia (ad ogni specie trattata la Waring dedica un componimento poetico), ma anche di scienze naturali (botanica e ornitologia erano i suoi principali interessi). Le sue descrizioni dei volatili non sono per nulla banali. Lo stile delle tavole, di ignoto autore, rimanda alle bellissime opere ornitologiche di E. Donovan e G. Greve. Si conoscono ediz. con le tavole in b.n. (Cfr. Mullens-Swann, p.612). Opera stranamente ignorata da Nissen IVB e non posseduta dal BrM(NH).

         Mr. Wentworth's Letter of Impeachment... [contained in] A Return of all the Letters addressed by... the Secretary of State for the Colonies, in reply to Governor Darling's Despatches, relative to the Punishment and Death of Private Joseph Sudds..

      London: Ordered, by the House of Commons, to be printed, 1832. A few spots towards the end; neat old library stamp on docket title.. Folio, 55 pp. and docket title; in a modern binding of quarter leather. One of the key pieces in the controversy over Governor Darling's handling of the Sudds-Thomson case, an affair which embroiled the Governor along with key figures in the colony over nearly ten years. This government printing is notable for containing the very long (35 pages) "Letter of Impeachment" published by William Charles Wentworth in his newspaper The Australian. It was a key piece in Wentworth's noisy and articulate fight against autocracy and his defence of the emancipists, though -- as Michael Persse notes in his ADB article on Wentworth -- the 'draft of 'impeachment' prepared by Wentworth against Darling did little damage to the governor's reputation at the Colonial Office, but it certainly undermined Wentworth's, so intemperate was its language'.Darling served his full term as governor, ultimately vindicated though it had been a long battle. Wentworth threw an immense party on his Vaucluse estate to celebrate the Governor's departure from the colony in 1831 where, so the newspaper reported, 'upward of 4,000 persons assembled at Vaucluse to partake of Mr Wentworth's hospitality and to evince joy at the approaching departure. The scene of the fête was on the lawn in front of Mr Wentworth's villa, which was thrown open for the reception of all respectable visitants, while a marquee filled with piles of loaves and casks of Cooper's gin and Wright's strong beer, was pitched a short way off. On an immense spit a bullock was roasted entire. Twelve sheep were also roasted in succession; and 4,000 loaves completed the enormous banquet. By 7 p.m. two immense bonfires were lighted on the highest hill ... Rustic sports, speeches, etc., etc., whiled away the night; and morning dawned before the hospitable mansion was quitted by all its guests'.

      London: The Birds of Europe 1832 - Sheet Dimensions: 21 x 14.5 in. Frame Dimensions: 32.5 x 26 in. Original hand-colored lithograph. John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains. For the next fifty years, Gould and his wife Elizabeth and artist working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. The Birds of Europe includes amazingly distinctive, and highly realistic images. Gould undertook this work partly in effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. Gould portrayed birds native to Europe in a manner that had only been thought appropriate for the colorful species of distant places. In this way he managed to draw much popular interest back to native European birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species.

         Amsterdam, Prins Hendrikkade, Schreierstoren - ca. 1832.

      Amsterdam - ?Gezigt op de Schreyer?s Toren, de Kraan en de Nieuwe Stadsherberg??.Steendruk uitgegeven ca. 1832 door L. Samijn. In de tijd met de hand (bij)gekleurd. Afm. 33 x 44 cm.Vanaf de Oosterdoksdijk zien we de Buitenkant/Prins Hendrikkade met links de Geldersekade en Hoofdbrug. Rechts van de Schreierstoren de Ou-dezijds Kolk. Voor ons het Open Havenfront. In de achtergrond de Mosselsteiger die loopt naar (geheel rechts) de Nieuwe Stadsherberg (afgebroken in 1871, thans ligt hier het Centraal Station).De Schreierstoren is de enige overgebleven verdedigingstoren van de middeleeuwse stadsmuur. Oorspronkelijk rees de toren op vanuit het water met net boven het wateroppervlak twee schietgaten. In 1532 kreeg hij zijn huidige gedaante. In het begin van de zeventiende eeuw werd de stadsmuur afgebroken en de singel gegraven. De toren heette oorspronkelijk de Schreiershoekstoren. ?Schreihoek? verwijst waarschijnlijk naar de scherpe hoek waar de Geldersekade en de Oudezijds Kolk samenkomen. De Schreierstoren is echter de geschiedenis ingegaan als de plek waar veel vrouwen schreiend hun geliefden hebben zien wegvaren.Prijs: ?1.250,- (incl. lijst).

      Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green, and Longman, London 1832 - In: Medico-Chirurgical Transactions published by the Medical and Chirurgical Society of London, Vol. 17, pp. 68-114 [caption title]. London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green, and Longman, 1832. 8vo (209 x 132 mm). Entire volume 17, xxiv [1], 527 [1] pp., 4 (3 folding) lithographed plates bound after p.[514]. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards, rebacked preserving original gilt-lettered spine. Light foxing of plates, plate II and III split at fold (without loss), ), the Hodgkin pages with a few mm of chipping to upper corner, text only little age-toned and generally quite fresh and clean. Provenance: Dr. Steevens' Hospital, Dublin*, Medical and Surgical Library (a few old ink stamps in text). A fine copy. ---- Garrison-Morton 3762; not in Norman, Cushing, Osler or Waller. VERY RARE FIRST PUBLICATION OF A CLASSIC IN ONCOLOGY, the full description of the simultaneous enlargement of the spleen and lymphatic glands, which Wilks in 1865 referred to as "Hodgkin's disease." Thomas Hodgkin studied under Laennec in Paris and received his doctorate in medicine from the University of Edinburgh. At the age of 27 he was appointed both a lecturer of morbid anatomy at Guy's Hospital and curator of its museum from 1825-37. Hodgkin was the first to describe tumorous enlargement of the lymph nodes, spleen, and liver as a distinct pathology and the first in England to pursue the lead of Bichat by discussing morbid anatomy from the standpoint of changes in tissue, and to give regular lecture courses in morbid anatomy. His Lectures on the Morbid Anatomy of the Serous and Mucous Membranes stimulated the study of tissue pathology in England. Hodgkin published only a few medical works during his brief medical career, which ended in 1837 after he failed to receive a promotion at Guy's Hospital; for the rest of his life he devoted himself to philanthropic pursuits. He is best known for his classic description of Hodgkin's lymphoma, contained in this copy. This is a very rare publication, only one copy sold at auction in the last 40 years: the Meyer Friedman copy (lot 86) at Sotheby's NY in November 2001 (sold for $21,450). *Dr Steevens' Hospital in Dublin was one of Ireland's most distinguished 18th-century medical establishments. It was founded under the terms of the will of Dr Richard Steevens (1653-1710), an eminent physician in Dublin, and designed by Thomas Burgh. The hospital was closed in 1987. - Visit our website for additional images and information. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Journal of a Residence at Bagdad, During the Years 1830 and 1831, by.

      London: James Nisbet 1832 - First edition. 8vo. xvi, 306, (2) pp. Uncut in publisher's dark green cloth backed drab boards, original paper spine label, ownership inscription of a Robert Haldane dated 1838 to the front free endpaper, dark green solander box, gilt lettered to the spine and lined in moiré silk. Small closed split to the head of the upper joint, both hinges opening but holding, a few marks to the boards, a very good unsophisticated copy. An early figure in the Plymouth Brethren, Groves (1795-1853) and his family journeyed to the middle-east via Russia in the late 1820s and early 1830s. He established a Christian mission in Baghdad working alongside the German missionary Karl Gottlieb Pfander. His years in Baghdad were eventful and ill-starred - a plague swept across the city, killing his wife and young daughter, before it was then besieged by the Pasha of Mosul. Gravely ill himself, he eventually escaped the city and moved on to India where he spent much of the remaining 20 years of his life. Robert Haldane (1764-1842) was a Scottish clergyman of a similarly zealous evangelical Protestant faith, explaining his ownership of the book. His own "missions" were more domestic - he founded the "Society for the Propagation of the Gospel at Home" with his brother James. Uncommon, with just four entries in auction records: the Peter Hopkirk copy came up in a similarly unsophisticated condition in 1998 plus another two copies in 2007; the Hopkirk copy reappeared in the second part of the Brooke-Hitching sale at Sotheby's in 2014.

This large-scale plan of the city was published when Manchester became the most productive centre of cotton processing, and later the world's largest marketplace for cotton goods. The city's leading position for textile manufacture earned it the names 'Cottonopolis' and 'Warehouse City'. This map, following the tradition of detailed city wall-map makers – such as Greenwood, for instance – thus testifies to the urban changes the city underwent: new manufactures and warehouses are pictured, as well as worker's accommodations. Very detailed, it pictures every building precisely, and cotton mills, silk mills, vitriol works, dye works and more are referenced, some of them absent from the Swire 1924 map of Manchester. John (d.1831) and Alexander (1797?-1870) Walker were father and son, two chart makers working as 'J. & A. Walker' in London and Liverpool. Alexander, who was probably in charge of the Liverpool branch, also worked with his two brothers John and Charles, established as 'J. & C. Walker' in London. Both companies worked for the British Admiralty. A fine, fresh example of this impressive cartographic achievement. BLMC Maps * 3215.(1.)

         On Some Morbid Appearances of the Absorbent Glands and Spleen.

      London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green, and Longman, 1832. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. In: Medico-Chirurgical Transactions published by the Medical and Chirurgical Society of London, Vol. 17, pp. 68-114 [caption title]. London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green, and Longman, 1832. 8vo (209 x 132 mm). Entire volume 17, xxiv [1], 527 [1] pp., 4 (3 folding) lithographed plates bound after p.[514]. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards, rebacked preserving original gilt-lettered spine. Light foxing of plates, plate II and III split at fold (without loss), text only little age-toned and generally quite fresh and clean. Provenance: Dr. Steevens' Hospital, Dublin*, Medical and Surgical Library (a few old ink stamps in text). A fine copy. ----Garrison-Morton 3762; not in Norman, Cushing, Osler or Waller. VERY RARE FIRST PUBLICATION OF A CLASSIC IN ONCOLOGY, the full description of the simultaneous enlargement of the spleen and lymphatic glands, which Wilks in 1865 referred to as "Hodgkin's disease." Thomas Hodgkin studied under Laennec in Paris and received his doctorate in medicine from the University of Edinburgh. At the age of 27 he was appointed both a lecturer of morbid anatomy at Guy's Hospital and curator of its museum from 1825-37. Hodgkin was the first to describe tumorous enlargement of the lymph nodes, spleen, and liver as a distinct pathology and the first in England to pursue the lead of Bichat by discussing morbid anatomy from the standpoint of changes in tissue, and to give regular lecture courses in morbid anatomy. His Lectures on the Morbid Anatomy of the Serous and Mucous Membranes stimulated the study of tissue pathology in England. Hodgkin published only a few medical works during his brief medical career, which ended in 1837 after he failed to receive a promotion at Guy's Hospital; for the rest of his life he devoted himself to philanthropic pursuits. He is best known for his classic description of Hodgkin's lymphoma, contained in this copy. This is a very rare publication, only one copy sold at auction in the last 40 years: the Meyer Friedman copy (lot 86) at Sotheby's NY in November 2001 (sold for $21,450). *Dr Steevens' Hospital in Dublin was one of Ireland's most distinguished 18th-century medical establishments. It was founded under the terms of the will of Dr Richard Steevens (1653-1710), an eminent physician in Dublin, and designed by Thomas Burgh. The hospital was closed in 1987. Very Good.

         Reise in das innere Nord-Amerika Die Jahre 1832-1834 [Gebundene Ausgabe] Maximilian Prinz zu Wied (Autor), Karl Bodmer (Autor) North America Völkerkunde Reisen Reiseberichte Nord- / Mittelamerika Indi

      Ein prächtiger Bildband mit faszinierenden Bildern des Schweizer Malers Karl Bodmer und Auszügen aus den Reisetagebüchern des Prinzen zu Wied. Er sollte in keiner Bibiliothek des Geschichts- oder Kulturinteressierten fehlen. Auf ihrer "Reise in das Innere Nordamerika" (1832-1834) haben der deutsche Fürst Prinz Maximilian zu Wied und der Schweizer Maler Karl Bodmer ein Werk für die Ewigkeit geschaffen. Gleichsam die Worte aus den Reisetagebücher zu Wieds als auch die künstlerischen Fertigkeiten Bodmers, die diese fantastischen Gemälde erst möglich gemacht haben, tragen mit dazu bei, daß die Erinnerung und das Wissen von den Lebensweisen der besuchten Völker nicht ausgelöscht werden. Auch wenn einige der besuchten Stämme fast ausgestorben sind, ihre Kultur zerstört ist, so leben sie doch in den Erzählungen und Bildern weiter! Auf sehr anschauliche Art und Weise werden versunkene Indianerkulturen hier wieder lebendig. Die Aufzeichnungen des Prinzen zählen noch heute zur ersten Wahl der Völkerkundeliteratur. Auch wenn sie nicht die ersten Forscher waren, die die Stämme besucht haben (vor ihnen waren 1804 - 1806 ja schon Lewis & Clark zur Erforschung des Westens unterwegs), und auch nach ihnen noch Maler und Völkerkundler die Stämme besuchten (z.b. George Catlin), so zählen die Aquarelle Bodmers doch zu den detailgenausten und herausragendsten Arbeiten, die je ein Künstler am "Lebenden Objekt" porträtiert hat. Die Bilder Bodmers, werden in diesem aufwendig gestalteten Bildband würdig präsentiert. Einzig die Reiseerzählungen sind für meinen Geschmack zu sehr gekürzt worden (was sich aber dadurch erklärt, daß Bilder und Text in Zusammenhang gebracht werden sollten - und für viele Passagen aus den sehr umfangreichen Reisetagebüchern des Prinzen, gibt es kein entsprechendes künstlerisches Vermächtnis von Karl Bodmer. Insgesamt jedoch ein Bildband der jeden einzelnen Cent wert ist.

         The Birds of Europe.

      London Published by the Author -1837 1832 - Five volumes folio (56.4 x 39.5 cm.), 448 hand-coloured lithographed plates, the majority drawn and lithographed by Elizabeth Gould from sketches and designs by the author, the remainder drawn and lithographed by Edward Lear, list of subscribers, list of plates; occasional slight spotting or foxing, full red morocco gilt by J. Law, Liverpool, blind-stamped panels to covers, gilt peacock design to covers, spine gilt lettered direct, raised bands, top edge gilt, lightly rubbed, a fine set handsomely bound. A fine copy of Gould's first multi-volume ornithological work and the first of his works to feature plates by Edward Lear: one of the greatest ornithological artists of all time. Lear's contributions included the most eye-catching subjects in the book: eagles, owls, cranes, pelicans, geese, swans, and flamingos. Lear's plates are from bird drawings that "are certainly among the most remarkable bird drawings ever made, [for] it is evident that Lear endowed them with some measure of his own whimsy and intelligence, his energetic curiosity, his self-conscious clumsiness and his unselfconscious charm" (Hyman). "Lear's participation transformed the work of Mrs. Gould. . [H]e propelled her limited sense of perspective into the third dimension. He encouraged movement, vigor, and a sense of character in her birds; he instilled an idea of composition in which the subject related to its background instead of perching in midair like a cardboard cutout. He introduced a sense of subtlety and freedom into her drawings where previously she had only mimicked the technique used in etching or engraving. There is no doubt that Edward Lear was the first person to understand the art of lithography and to use it to its fullest potential. It was a legacy that made the works of Gould into a success and took them into the forefront of nineteenth-century illustration" (Tree).

         Thirty-Six New Original and Practical Designs for Chairs, adapted for the Drawing and Dining Room, Parlour and Hall by W. Toms, Junr., Carver in General.

      W. Evans, 41 Broad-Street, Bath - Lithographed throughout by Joseph Holloway, with title-page and 36 plates, each illustrating one chair. 4to. [271 x 215 x 8 mm]. Original boards with extended title printed on front and rear, cloth spine (rebacked with matching cloth). [c.1832] A fine copy of a rare book. COPAC locates copies at the British Library, Oxford and V&A, while WorldCat locates copies at Winterthur, Cleveland Public, University of California, Yale, and Virginia Historical Society. Abebooks does not even offer to print a copy on demand. Toms attempted to show his design versatility and competent cabinet maker skills by illustrating designs for chairs with richly carved or turned decorations. The first 12 chairs are in the "French modern style", followed by a number of chairs in Louis XVI style, then neo-gothic inspired hall chairs, and finally ten chairs in late English Regency design. He engaged the services of the local lithography printer Joseph Holloway and probably issued the plates privately and distributed them to potential clients. How successful this was we do not know, but the pattern book caught the eye of the enterprising Bath printer, bookseller and stationer William Evans, "who has purchashed all the remaining copies" (as stated on the boards) and was selling them for 16 shillings each. The few copies in institutional libraries are mostly the Evans issue, variously dated between c.1825 (V&A) and "183?" (Winterthur). Only the Getty, Redwood and Historic Houses Trust (Australia) seem to be the original Toms issue. A William Toms is listed as a "carver & gilder" at 41 Broad Street, Bath, in Pigot's Directory for Somerset in 1822 and 1830. This is probably William Toms senior as another William Toms, "carver & gilder" and born in Bath , is listed in the 1851 census at Market Lavington in Wiltshire, his age given as 45. This younger man is most likely our man, son of William Toms and his wife Mary Maxfield, baptised at St. Swithin, Walcot, Bath, in April 1804. Toms senior was born c1773 and is listed as "carver" in freemasonry records as a member of the Royal Sussex Lodge from 1818 until 1823. His death is recorded in Bath in 1839. A correspondent to the Bath Chronicle "Notes and Queries" column in December 1934 reported that the elder Toms first appeared in Bath directories as a carver and gilder in 1812 at Milsom Street before moving to 41 Broad Street, and that Toms junior was listed as a cabinet maker in 1837 at 5 Queen Street, Bath. The lithographer, Joseph Holloway (1797-1861), announced in the Bath Chronicle of 21st April 1831 that he had moved from 36 Westgate Street, Bath to No.10 Union Street, and this is the address given at the foot of the title-page. He was still at Union Street in 1848 but no longer listed there in 1851. William Evans, the bookseller, is listed in Pigot's Directory for 1842 at 41 Broad Street, Bath, William Toms's former address. He is still there in 1846, but by 1850 the premises were occupied by Samuel Vivian, printer, bookseller and stationer.

         Expédition scientifique de Morée. Travaux de la Section des sciences physiques sous la direction de (J. B. G. M.) Bory de Saint-Vincent.

      Paris Didot -40 1832 - First edition, 3 text volumes bound in 5 and atlas, together 6 volumes, text 4to (35 x 27.5 cm.), atlas folio (54.5 x 36 cm.), half-titles, engraved medallions on general titles, illustrations in the text, atlas with lithographed portrait of Bory de Saint-Vincent and 151 plates and maps, some double-page or folding, 67 of which coloured by hand (the atlas volume contains 6 maps on 11 sheets, (1 coloured, most double-page and folding), 31 topographical views on 35 sheets, 12 coloured geological plates, 55 (of which 49 coloured) zoological plates and 38 (of which 5 coloured) botanical plates. Contemporary half calf gilt over marbled boards, some light foxing, an excellent set of a very scarce work. Fine and complete set of this work with the text volumes and atlas. Rare: we can trace only one complete set of this work being sold at auction in the last twenty-five years (Sotheby's London, 2008). The Expédition de Morée was the name given in France to the land intervention of the French Army in the Peloponnese (at the time often still known by its medieval name, Morea) between 1828 and 1833, at the time of the Greek War of Independence. As during Napoleon's Egyptian Campaign, when a Commission of Sciences and Arts had accompanied the military campaign, a Morea scientific mission (Mission scientifique de Morée) accompanied the troops. From 1829 to 1831, under the leadership of the naturalist, physical geographer and Colonel Jean-Baptiste-Geneviève-Marcellin Bory de Saint-Vincent (177 -1846) a large collaborative body of artists, antiquarians, botanists, draftsmen, geologists, and epigraphers carried out a geographic survey of the Peloponnesus. The mission was originally divided into three sections, one dealt with the physical sciences, the second with archaeology, and the third with architecture and sculpture. While the documentation of the ancient sites and monuments fell under the direction of the architect and antiquarian Guillaume Abel Blouet (whose documentation was separately published), the geographical survey was attached to the physical sciences section under Bory de Saint-Vincent. One of the first objectives fixed by the French government had been to draw precise maps of the Peloponnese, with a scientific purpose, but also for economic and military reasons. This mapping of the Peloponnese by Puillon Boblaye was probably the greatest achievement of the Expedition. It resulted in the first large-scale mapping of the area and with the French measurement of the Peloponnesus precise co-ordinates and elevations for archaeological sites, water sources, rivers, etc. were established in relation to each other and the greater region. Furthermore, perhaps even more importantly, through the incorporation of the geodesic survey, precise co-ordinates for ancient sites, monuments and landscape features were calculated relative to the globe. In two years, a very precise map, drawn on six sheets at a 1/200,000 scale, was produced. In March 1829, a base of 3,500 meters had been traced in Argolis, from one angle at the ruins of Tiryns to an angle of a house in ruins in the village of Aria]. This was intended to serve as a point of departure in all the triangulation operations for topographic and geodesic readings in the Peloponnese proceeded to perform numerous verifications on the base and on the rulers used. The margin of error was thus reduced to 1 metre for every 15 kilometres. Zoologically, The Morea expedition confirmed that the golden jackal existed in Greece. Although earlier travel narratives had mentioned its presence, these were not considered trustworthy. Moreover, the subspecies seen and described by the French (named Canis aureus moreotica) was endemic to the region. Bory de Saint-Vincent brought back pelts and a skull.

         THE JAMAICA ALMANACK FOR THE YEAR 1832

      Kingston: Office of the Royal Gazette, 1832. [iii]-147,[1],154pp. Folding handcolored frontispiece. 12mo. Contemporary green wallet-style morocco. Some leaves loose. Very good. Issued shortly before the full emancipation of slaves, this is an important almanac from the end of the slave culture on the island. This almanac notably includes on pages 37-48 the laws relating to slaves, as amended in February 1831. In addition, the final section of the almanack (with separate pagination) lists the names of each individual "proprietor" in each county and parish, with the location of their property as well as the number of slaves and heads of livestock owned. The hand colored frontispiece depicts the signals of British ships in the West Indies. Some early Jamaica almanacs, like the present, include a page showing the Jewish calendar, which "would seem to be an indication of the importance of Jewish residents in the eyes of Christian Jamaicans" (B. W. Korn, "The Haham DeCordova of Jamaica," in AMERICAN JEWISH ARCHIVES 18:2 [Nov. 1966]). In addition on page 72 is a listing of the leaders of both the "English and German Jews' Synagogue" and the "Spanish and Portuguese Jews' Synagogue" in Kingston.

         Geist der Kochkunst.

      Überarbeitet und herausgegeben von C.F. von Rumohr. VIII S., 1 Bl, 202 S. Mod. Ldr. Gutes und sauberes Exemplar. trotz kleiner Wasserflecken. Breitrandig. ERSTAUSGABE: Weiss 3282.-Horn 567. - Georg 1311. - Auktion Walterspiel 440. Erst in der 2. Auflage gab Friedrich von Rumohr bekannt, dass er selbst der Verfasser sei und nicht sein Koch Joseph König. Schraemli: "In der Einleitung gibt der Autor einen ausgezeichneten Überblick über die gastronomische Literatur, die von seinem grossen Weitblick und einer grossartigen Belesenheit zeugt. Dass diesem Werk trotz seinen hervorragenden Eigenschaften kein Erfolg beschieden war, heisst nichts. Der Prophet galt im Lande nichts. Wäre Rumohr Franzose gewesen, würde man wahrscheinlich heute nicht so viel Aufhebens von Brillat-Savarin machen." - Die 2. Auflage erschien 1832 und eine 3. Auflage bei Reclam (ca. 1880) in einer Überarbeitung von Habs. Äusserst selten. Very rare first edition of one of the major work on gastrosophy ever written. Equals Brillat-Savarin's Physiologie du Gout in importance in the German language.
