        Preliminary catalogue of fixed stars intended for a prospectus of a catalogue of the stars of the Southern Hemisphere included within the Tropic of Capricorn now reducing from the observations made in the observatory at Paramatta.

      Hamburgh: Printed for Perthes & Besser 4to (25 cm; 10"). 20, xxv pp.. 1832 One has to say it plainly: this is => a foundation work of Australian science and an important one for the history of world astronomy — the first Australian star catalogue. Christian Carl Ludwig Rümker (a.k.a. Charles Rumker, 1788–1862) was born at Stargard, Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Germany; he studied to be a builder and passed his master builder examination in 1807 but abandoned that career for teaching mathematics. Two years later, he gave that up in favor of the sea and England, serving variously as a midshipman in the East India Company, a helmsman in the merchant navy, a teacher of sea cadets, and an officer on H.M.S.'s Benbow, Montagu, and Albion. His introduction to astronomy came while on Mediterranean service, where he made the acquaintance of Baron Franz-Xaver de Zach, an Austrian astronomer. He published various papers and his work attracted favorable review. Captain Peter Heywood, under whom he had served in the Montagu, recommended him to Sir Thomas Brisbane, the newly appointed governor of Australia, and Rümker was engaged as the governor's private astronomer; he landed in Australia as a member of the Brisbane party. Once Gov. Brisbane's Parramatta observatory was completed in 1822 he began his work, and made significant discoveries, but friction with Brisbane caused him to resign; he returned to Parramatta in 1826, was appointed the official government astronomer in 1827, and continued thus through the end of the decade. For his later life, quarrels, and achievements we recommend the fine article in the online Australian Dictionary of Biography. Rumker’s catalogue of stars visible in the southern hemisphere had both a purely scientific aim and a practical one. The systematic study and cataloguing of the stars visible with the aid of observatory-based telescopy in the southern hemisphere was in its infancy in the 1820s: The Royal Observatory at the Cape of Good Hope was established in 1820 and was the first permanent astronomical observatory in the southern hemisphere. Thus one can see the importance of Parramatta being up and working in 1822. On the practical side, Gov. Brisbane was a naval officer who knew the importance of the stars in navigation. Rumker’s work and his catalogue served both science and the Royal Navy, as he offered "Constants of Aberration and Nutation"; a "Comparison of my Observations with those made by La Caille"; and notes on "Double Stars," "Magnitudes and Colour of the Stars, Nebula's, &c.," and so forth — with the grand quotation of our caption being taken from his Preface. Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate only nine copies in U.S. libraries. Provenance: Presented to Alexander Dallas Bache, a great-grandson of Benjamin Franklin and at the time of publication of this work a professor of natural philosophy and chemistry at the University of Pennsylvania: "Professor A.D. Bache / with the author's Compts." in ink on the front wrapper. Publisher's blue-green wrappers, text block stitched as issued. Overall age-toning; occasional foxing; faint waterstaining in upper third of most pages. Overall a good++ copy.

        Wild Sports of the West.

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1832. With Legendary Tales, and Local Sketches. 2 volumes, octavo (212 x 132 mm). Later 19th century dark red half calf by Larkins, richly gilt spines, black morocco twin labels, marbled sides and endpapers. Aquatint frontispieces, 3 plates, 12 wood-engravings in the text. Bound without the half-title in volume I (as called-for by Sadleir), bindings a little rubbed, a few gatherings a little proud, scattered foxing or signs of handling. An attractive set. First edition. "In 1829 Maxwell achieved recognition as a writer when Henry Colburn published his Stories of Waterloo, for which he paid him £300. Three years later one of his most popular books appeared: Wild Sports of the West (1832). This contained lively tales and legends together with colourful descriptions of Irish people, sporting activities (such as salmon fishing and deer hunting), and the Connaught countryside... Maxwell had thus become a progenitor of two kinds of fiction which became popular in the 1830s and 1840s: the military novel and the rollicking story of Irish life" (ODNB). The presence of aquatint illustrations is unusual, and the wood engravings in the text, mostly signed "T. Bagg", are delightful.

        A Comparative View of the various Institutions for the Assurance of Lives.

      FIRST EDITION of Babbage?s first substantial published work, the first thorough treatise on actuarial theory, complete with folding table of mortality statistics, generally considered the first reliable life table. Babbage was a founder member of the statistical section of the British Association for the Advancement of Science in 1832.?Babbage was offered the position of director and actuary of the fledgeling Protector Life Assurance Company with the prospect of an annual income of £2500, a substantial improvement on his father's grudging allowance. He spent several months studying the life assurance business and computed a new set of life tables. The venture was abandoned the day before its scheduled launch on 1 July 1824. Babbage used his actuarial knowledge as the basis for a small popular work, A Comparative View of the Various Institutions for the Assurance of Lives (1826). The book was not intended for the professional actuary but for the general populace unwary of the pitfalls of conveniently misrepresented benefits. It was, at least in part, a work of consumer protection with Babbage self-cast as champion of the exposé? (ODNB).Hook & Norman, Origins of Cyberspace, 36.8vo, pp. xxxi, 170, (27), 1 leaf (imprint), 1 folding letterpress table. Original(?) mauve cloth, partly faded to brown, unlettered. Tear at top and bottom of upper joint, a little spotting in signature I, otherwise a nice, clean copy. Signature of Joseph March, 1832, on front endpaper.

        Asia for the Elucidation of the Abbe Gaultier's Geographical Games

      London: John Harris, 1832. Engraved map, 345 x 432 mm. (image size), original hand-colouring. An attractive children's educational map of Australia, Asia and the east coast of Africa (this is an example of the issue with geographical place names added). The map is based on the work of the Abbé Gaultier, an educationalist originally from Piedmont, who had settled in France in 1780 and later fled the revolution to London. Gaultier began publishing his works in the late eighteenth-century, and his philosophy of teaching geographical knowledge through games was an influence on game-makers and educational publishers both on the continent and in England. He died in 1818 but his Geography continued to be reprinted. In 1815 it was "collated with the author's last Paris edition by Jehoshaphat Aspin", a cartographer (see Juliana Bayfield, 'Games of Virtue and Learning', The La Trobe Journal, 1997). Aspin seems to have produced the first edition of this work in 1821.Aspin's versions of the maps evidently had some success as an entertainment and teaching aid. They were originally issued as a portfolio or atlas, which included maps of many different parts of the world, some blank, and others with geographical information added as is here the case. Although bibliographical information is a little sketchy, similar English editions appear to have been published in 1821, 1823, 1829 and 1838. This particular map seems to derive from the "fourth" edition, the Atlas adapted to the Abbe? Gaultier's Geographical Games of 1838, in which some maps were dated as early as 1832.All editions of the full atlas are now very scarce, with the 1838 edition being the only one recorded in Australia, at the National Library of Australia.

Ecken etwas bestoßen, Decken etwas berieben. Erste Ausgabe (Kirchner 7594; Obenaus, Literar. u.polit Zeitschriften S.78; nicht bei Estermann).- Teils etwas stockfleckig. Zeitgenöss. gestoch. Exlibris a.d. Innendeckel „Freiherrlich von Lotzbeck’sche Familien-Fideicommiss-Bibliothek auf Schloss Weyhern“ und Namenschild „Alfredv.Lotzbeck“ a.d. Innendeckeln. A.v. LOTZBECK (Lahr/ Baden 1819 – 1874 München), Kämmerer und Reichsrat, 1848 Mitglied des Frankfurter Vorparlaments, bekannt für seine Kunst- und Büchersammlung. Die Zeitschrift erschien in loser Folge in insgesamt acht Heften. „Die Initiative zur Gründung ging seit Mitte 1830 vom Hamburger Verleger PERTHES aus, nach dessen Ansicht die Wirkungen der französischen Revolution auf die öffentliche deutsche Meinung, deren Vergiftung durch die Presse, nur mit Erfolg durch ‚gute‘ Presse bekämpft werden konnte. Mit seiner Konzeption eines billigen, populären ‚Volksblatts‘ konnte PERTHES sich aber nicht durchsetzen. RANKEs im Auftrag des preußischen Außenministers v.BERNSTORFF im Frühjahr 1832 begründete Zeitschrift war, wie Perthes enttäuscht kommentierte, ‚nur für höhere Staatsbeamte, für Männer vom Fach und für höhere politische Kreise bestimmt, die schon dieselbe Richtung haben, also nicht erst mit vieler Mühe und vielen Kosten gewonnen zu werden brauchen‘. Die Zeitschrift wurde vom Staat finanziert und war im Unterschied zum Berliner Politischen Wochenblatt streng wissenschaftlich orientiert, kein Organ der öffentlichen Meinungsbildung. Das wird auch der Grund gewesen sein, ihr die Selbstzensur zu bewilligen. Aufsätze zur neuesten allgemeinen Geschichte seit 1789 mit dem Schwerpunkt auf dem Zeitraum seit 1815 und Analysen der ‚deutschen Verhältnisse‘ bildeten den Inhalt. Insbesondere plante RANKE, ‚den Zusammenhang der Institutionen des preußischen Staates zu erläutern‘. Katholisch-traditionalistische Einflüsse auf die antirevolutionären Doktrinen lehnte die Zeitschrift ab. Sie blieb ohne große Resonanz in der Öffentlichkeit. Für RANKE, der die meisten Aufsätze der Zeitschrift verfasste, bedeutete die Redaktion seine Existenzsicherung. Bei der Mitarbeiterwerbung gab es ‚viele abschlägige Antworten‘, so kam auch eine Mitarbeit EICHENDORFFS nicht zustande. Hauptsächlich sei es, so meinte er, ‚ein übler Umstand, daß man sich vor dem preußischen Element unsers Unternehmens fürchtet.“ (Obenaus). Namentlich gekennzeichnet sind die Beiträge Ueber das Leben und den Charakter von Scharnhorst. Aus dem Nachlasse des GENERAL CLAUSEWITZ. (Erstdruck) und von FRIEDRICH CARL VON SAVIGNY Die preußische Städteordnung. und Wesen und Werth der deutschen Universitäten. (Erstdrucke). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Facettenreiche literarisch-kulturhistorische Zeitschrift des Schriftstellers Carl Spindler (1796 - 1855), der als Verfasser zahlreicher Novellen und Romanen zu den populärsten Unterhaltungsschriftstellern seiner Zeit gehörte. Spindler hatte von 1829 an - als Vorgängerin des "Zeitspiegels" - zunächst die "Damen-Zeitung" (Untertitel: "Ein Morgenblatt für das schöne Geschlecht") herausgegeben, deren Akzentuierung ihm dann wohl etwas zu einseitig erschien. Der "Zeitspiegelt" entfaltet ein breites Panorama literarischer, zeit- und landesgeschichtlicher sowie künstlerischer Abhandlungen, gemischt mit Anekdotischem und Kuriosem aus dem In- und Ausland. Das Leben der Zeitschrift war allerdings kurz: Es erschien nur ein vollständiger Jahrgang, bereits 1832 wurde das Erscheinen eingestellt. Größere Konvolute dieser anregenden Kulturzeitschrift sind heute nur noch sehr selten anzutreffen. Die Bände in sehr gutem Zustand, allenfalls partiell leicht berieben. Seiten überwiegend sauber, wenige Seiten leicht fleckig. In toto sehr schönes Konvolut dieser seltenen Kulturzeitschrift.

        Wild Sports of the West. With Legendary Tales, and Local Sketches.

      London: Richard Bentley, 1832 - 2 volumes, octavo (212 x 132 mm). Later 19th century dark red half calf by Larkins, richly gilt spines, black morocco twin labels, marbled sides and endpapers. Bound without the half-title in volume I (as called-for by Sadleir), bindings a little rubbed, a few gatherings a little proud, scattered foxing or signs of handling. An attractive set. Aquatint frontispieces, 3 plates, 12 wood-engravings in the text. First edition. "In 1829 Maxwell achieved recognition as a writer when Henry Colburn published his Stories of Waterloo, for which he paid him £300. Three years later one of his most popular books appeared: Wild Sports of the West (1832). This contained lively tales and legends together with colourful descriptions of Irish people, sporting activities (such as salmon fishing and deer hunting), and the Connaught countryside. Maxwell had thus become a progenitor of two kinds of fiction which became popular in the 1830s and 1840s: the military novel and the rollicking story of Irish life" (ODNB). The presence of aquatint illustrations is unusual, and the wood engravings in the text, mostly signed "T. Bagg", are delightful. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Purple Swamphen. Hyacinthe Porphyrio

      London: [by the Author, 1832. Hand-coloured lithograph by John and Elizabeth Gould. Printed by C. Hullmandel. A beautiful image from John Gould's 'The Birds of Europe': a work which, according to Hyman, 'included some of the most remarkable bird drawings ever made'. This plate is from the second of John Gould's great ornithological portfolios. Gould undertook this work not only hoping to build on the success of his first work (on the birds of the Himalaya mountains), but also in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. It was his opinion that too much attention had focused on the exotic, whilst the beauty of the more local species was ignored. He wrote in the preface to the work from which this image comes: 'It has been frequently remarked that the productions of distant countries have received a much larger share of attention than those objects by which we are more immediately surrounded; and it is certainly true, that while numerous and costly illustrations have made us acquainted with the Ornithology of most other parts of the world, the Birds of Europe, in which we are, or ought to be, more interested, have not received that degree of attention which they naturally demand. The present work has been undertaken to supply that deficiency.' The images in this work are the first to be published by Gould that show the liveliness of treatment that was to become such a feature of later works. This break from the traditional methods of bird depiction can be largely attributed to the influence of and contributions from Edward Lear: 'They 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) Cf. Anker 169; cf.Balis 101; cf.Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 102; cf.Nissen IVB 371; cf.Sauer 2; cf.Zimmer p. 251.

        Annals and Antiquities of Rajast';han, or the Central and Western Rajpoot States of India

      London: published by Smith, Elder, & Co. and Calkin & Budd, 1832. 2 volumes, 4to. (12 x 9 1/2 inches). Half-titles. 3 letterpress tables (1 folding). 50 plates, plans and maps by Edward Finden and others after Captain Waugh, Ghafasi and others (including: 1 folding engraved map, hand-coloured in outline, 28 engraved plates after Waugh [1 folding], 11 engraved plates after Ghafasi, 3 lithographs [1 folding, 2 drawn on stone by Louis Haghe and on india paper mounted]). (Small repaired hole to the inner margin of the frontispiece of vol.II). Later red half morocco over red cloth-covered boards by Root & Son, spines gilt in six compartments with raised bands, the bands highlighted in gilt and blind, lettered in gilt in the second and fourth compartments, marbled endpapers, t.e.g. First edition of this valuable early study of the history, beliefs and topography of Rajasthan in north west India. The author went to India as a cadet in the Bengal army of the British East India Company in 1799. He commanded the escort attached to the Resident at Sindhia from 1812 to 1817. In the latter year he was in charge of the Intelligence Department which largely contributed to the break up of the Maratha Confederacy in the Third Anglo-Maratha War, and was of great assistance in the campaign in Rajputana. In 1818 he was appointed political agent for the states of western Rajputana, where he successfully acted as a aribitrator between rival chieftains, settling their feuds. While Resident in Rajputana, Tod collected materials for his Annals and Antiquities of Rajasthan , a work of great importance for South Asian scholars. At the dawn of the archaeological and historical study of India, Tod presents the contemporary geography and a detailed history of Rajputana along with the history of the Rajput clans who ruled most of the area at that time. Tod's work drew on local archives, Rajput traditional sources, and monuments such as the Edicts of Asoka found at Junagadh. He returned to England in 1823 with a wealth of material for what became a fundamental study of Rajast'han's historical development. The work is ornamented with a fine series of plates, the majority of which are from drawings either by a local artist whose name is given as Ghafsi, or Captain Waugh, a friend and kinsman of the author who died just before the work was published. The work was much appreciated in the region at the time, to the extent that the ruler of Udaipur renamed a village in Tod's honour: Barsawada became "Todgarh" (or Tods fort) - a name that it still bears today.

        A LITHOGRAPH WITH HAND-COLOURING IN GOUACHE OF CANTON HONGS,THE QUAY, SHOWING TH

      [Canton ca. 1832-41]. A large lithograph, hand coloured. gouache, lower left corner states "Canton," very good, 38.5. x 25.2 cm., gilt framed & glazed to 63 x 50.5 cm.,very clean. unsigned work. A UNIQUE AND RARE EARLY CANTON VIEW. A truly lovely hand-coloured lithograph, in folio size, with large margins. A lovely piece with no flaws in the print whatsoever. * THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THE SCENE: The foreground is the harbour, with several large Chinese junks & sampans moving about. Their long black braided queue and traditional Hakka hats visible. In the background are a large number of two-storied red tile-roofed foreign-style buildings are done in the European manner. These are foreign "factories" and each flies the flag of their respective nationality. This shows American flag in the center, on the right of that is the Union Jack of Great Britain, then the Dutch flag. To the left of the Americans are the Spanish. See reference below in Lee. The British & Dutch "factories" are both surrounded by a tall and very substantial wooden fence. Although undated, the Americans did establish their own trading "factory" in Canton ca. 1784 an approximate date can be derived from the fact that the French flag was installed around the mid-1780's then, in 1832 & 1841, when many of the foreign "factories" were destroyed by a huge conflagration. This view shows the new "factories" rebuilt after that fire, so we therefore date it ca. 1832-1841. With an exceptionally good view of the American garden. * A large number of people, perhaps foreign soldiers or sailors are on parade before the American compound. Several Chinese are visible walking along the beach-front with their traditional bamboo poles [yoke] suspended by two people who haul a heavy load. A gala and lively scene, with many small Chinese flags flying on the native vessels. Several of the Sampams in the foreground have Chinese people who are look- ing directly at the foreign artist who is engaged in drawing them & the view of the Hongs. Had the artist been a Chinese onlookers would have no interest in looking. Because it is a "rare" Westerner, the Chinese have noticed him and turned their heads in the direction of the artist to have a good good look at the strange "Hong Mao" ["red hairs" or foreign- er] or "Gui Lo" a "foreign devil." * The work is finely drawn in a steady hand even though it was clearly executed from aboard a floating vessel or Sampan in the busy Canton harbor. It was done with great skill and in fine lines, reproducing details of the gay and lively scene with an almost "photographic" or realistic quality, typical of the work by Western artists of the period. * A truly lovely and early hand-coloured tinted [gouache] lithographic work by a Westerner showing a very primitive Canton waterfront and the Hongs in a most charming manner. Graphics of this period and subject matter are always quite RARE ! * PRINTING TECHNIQUE AND CONDITION: The technique involved is somewhat of a mystery. While it looks as if this was a lithograph, there is no "plate mark" in the margins what so ever, possibly meaning that because the medium was so very stiff, such a mark did not occur. For the most part, lithographic prints had some "plate mark" surrounding the print impressed on the paper medium, giving evidence of the printing technique. However, when the medium is a stiff card, this can not be the case. What is curious about this folio sized item, is that it is printed on very a board, approximately 1 mm. thick, which is several times the thickness of standard lithographic print medium. While this technique was used by Currier and Ives at a later date, it is conceivable that the technique began earlier in the 1820-30's. The 6.5 cm. full and generous margins are typical of other lithographs of this period, The verso of this print has some evidence of mild foxing, which has as NOT bled through the very thick board to the front side, There is a small mend at the lower left corner area as well as a small "bend" in the lower right corner, which is now stable. It is noteworthy to say, that neither of these minor issues affect the print at all being located in the wide margins. The face of the print is remarkably clean, bright and flawless, with the gouache executed with substantial skill showing clouds at the top and the details of the work are superbly done ! A handsome work in deed ! * REFERENCES: James Orange: THE CHATER COLLECTION: Pictures Relating to China, Hong Kong, Macao 1655-1880.

        Voyage au Congo

      1832 - (AFRICA) DOUVILLE, Jean-Baptiste. Voyage au Congo et dans l’Intérieur de l’Afrique Équinoxiale, Fait dans les Années 1828, 1829 et 1830. Paris: Jules Renouard, 1832. Three volumes and Atlas. Octavo, original pale blue printed wrappers, uncut and unopened; Atlas, slim folio (11-1/2 by 15 inches), original wrappers rebacked. Housed in custom paper-covered slipcase and clamshell box. $8500.First edition of this early description of the Congo and the far interior of Angola, with the rare Atlas containing an engraved title page, list of plates, 20 full-page lithographs of inhabitants and their way of life, and a large engraved folding map of the African interior by Brué.Douville (1794-1837) excited first wild enthusiasm and then widespread skepticism upon publication of his Voyage au Congo in 1832, on account of his explorations into the very heart of Africa. Although the work came under attack for fabrication, Douville maintained the authenticity of his account, and even Sir Richard Burton maintained that the Frenchman’s descriptions of the Congo were lifelike; that his observations on the anthropology, ceremonies, customs an maladies of the people were remarkably accurate; and that the native words used in his narrative were “for the most part given with unusual correctness.” “Douville continues to intrigue historians, not only because of the romantic and mysterious quality of the French traveler’s life, but because his bookâ€" if authenticâ€" contains valuable information about the far interior of Angola at a period when few other sources allow more than occasional glimpses of the history and culture of the people who lived there. Douville’s credibility has recently received renewed support [by way of] verifying the accuracy of his data on the climate, geography, politics, and society, [noting] that many names appear in print for the first time in Douville and only later make their entry into the accounts of other travelers” (Joseph C. Miller). The scholarly consensus is that the chief source for Douville’s work was likely a group of unpublished Portuguese manuscripts to which he had ready access. The accompanying Atlas contains a large map by Adrien Hubert Brué. Between 1810-30, Brué was perhaps the most important practitioner of French cartography. His travels took him to the West African coast and South Asia and he was a member of the Société de Géographie de Paris and of the Royal Geographical Society in London. Brué held the office of Géographe du Roi and often signed his maps accordingly. His maps are characterized by precise accuracy, clarity of line and beautiful detail. Brué map laid into the Atlas. Text in French. Howgego D27. Slight soiling to exteriors, small wormhole to last gathering of Volume III (not affecting text). A nearly fine unopened copy in original wrappers.

        Preliminary catalogue of fixed stars intended for a prospectus of a catalogue of the stars of the Southern Hemisphere included within the Tropic of Capricorn now reducing from the observations made in the observatory at Paramatta.

      Hamburgh: Printed for Perthes & Besser 4to (25 cm; 10"). 20, xxv pp.. 1832 One has to say it plainly: this is => a foundation work of Australian science and an important one for the history of world astronomy — the first Australian star catalogue. Christian Carl Ludwig Rümker (a.k.a. Charles Rumker, 1788–1862) was born at Stargard, Mecklenburg-Strelitz, Germany; he studied to be a builder and passed his master builder examination in 1807 but abandoned that career for teaching mathematics. Two years later, he gave that up in favor of the sea and England, serving variously as a midshipman in the East India Company, a helmsman in the merchant navy, a teacher of sea cadets, and an officer on H.M.S.'s Benbow, Montagu, and Albion. His introduction to astronomy came while on Mediterranean service, where he made the acquaintance of Baron Franz-Xaver de Zach, an Austrian astronomer. He published various papers and his work attracted favorable review. Captain Peter Heywood, under whom he had served in the Montagu, recommended him to Sir Thomas Brisbane, the newly appointed governor of Australia, and Rümker was engaged as the governor's private astronomer; he landed in Australia as a member of the Brisbane party. Once Gov. Brisbane's Parramatta observatory was completed in 1822 he began his work, and made significant discoveries, but friction with Brisbane caused him to resign; he returned to Parramatta in 1826, was appointed the official government astronomer in 1827, and continued thus through the end of the decade. For his later life, quarrels, and achievements we recommend the fine article in the online Australian Dictionary of Biography. RumkerÂ’s catalogue of stars visible in the southern hemisphere had both a purely scientific aim and a practical one. The systematic study and cataloguing of the stars visible with the aid of observatory-based telescopy in the southern hemisphere was in its infancy in the 1820s: The Royal Observatory at the Cape of Good Hope was established in 1820 and was the first permanent astronomical observatory in the southern hemisphere. Thus one can see the importance of Parramatta being up and working in 1822. On the practical side, Gov. Brisbane was a naval officer who knew the importance of the stars in navigation. RumkerÂ’s work and his catalogue served both science and the Royal Navy, as he offered "Constants of Aberration and Nutation"; a "Comparison of my Observations with those made by La Caille"; and notes on "Double Stars," "Magnitudes and Colour of the Stars, Nebula's, &c.," and so forth — with the grand quotation of our caption being taken from his Preface. Searches of NUC and WorldCat locate only nine copies in U.S. libraries. Provenance: Presented to Alexander Dallas Bache, a great-grandson of Benjamin Franklin and at the time of publication of this work a professor of natural philosophy and chemistry at the University of Pennsylvania: "Professor A.D. Bache / with the author's Compts." in ink on the front wrapper. Publisher's blue-green wrappers, text block stitched as issued. Overall age-toning; occasional foxing; faint waterstaining in upper third of most pages. Overall a good++ copy.
