      C. L. F. Panckcoucke, Paris 1832 - A Selection from Vues des cotes de France dans l'ocean et dans la Mediterranee. Hand-colored aquatint engravings. Sheet size: 17" x 23 3/4". The marine artist Ambroise-Louis Garneray was born in February, 1783. He received his first lessons in painting and drawing from his father, Jean-Francois, who was a pupil of David. The younger Garneray went to sea at the age of thirteen, and for nearly eighteen years served on battle ships, slavers, whaling vessels and on expeditions to the Caribbean and throughout the Pacific Ocean. Garneray finally returned to Paris in 1814 after spending eight years in England, where he had been detained after being captured at sea. He established himself as a marine painter upon his arrival, and studied engraving under Philibert Louis Debucourt. In 1815 he was admitted to the Salon, and exhibited his first painting, View of the Port of London, in the following year. He continued to exhibit, winning a gold medal in 1819, and later earned the patronage of Louis XVIII, who commissioned him to paint several scenes of naval battles. In 1833, Garneray was appointed director of the Rouen Museum, a post he resigned in 1837 to work on designs for the Sevres porcelain factory. While Garneray's engravings of naval and whaling scenes were extremely popular, even in America, his greatest achievement was a series of views of the principal ports of France, Europe and the United States, supplemented by the elegant prose descriptions of M.E. Jouy, and published in Paris between 1823 and 1834. Inventory#: p543pmat.

        HISTOIRE DE RASSELAS, PRINCE D'ABYSSINIE

      Paris: Chez Baudry, 1832. n. Hardcover. Owned, in turn, by the Final Dauphin, the Last King of France, and Michel Wittock. 219 x 156 mm (8 5/8 x 6 1/8"). 2 p.l., xxiv, 395 pp. Translated by Madame Du Fresne. FINE CONTEMPORARY GREEN STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, GILT, BY HERING & MULLER (their ticket on front pastedown, and stamp-signed in gilt by Muller at tail of spine), covers framed by multiple gilt rules with decorative cornerpieces, center of each cover with large arms of Louis Antoine, Duke of Angoul?me, (the last) Dauphin of France (1775-1844); flat spine gilt in one long and one short panel tooled with a guilloche roll highlighted with rosettes and fleurs-de-lys; gilt titling, densely gilt turn-ins, textured pale yellow endpapers, all edges gilt. Text in French and English on facing pages. Front pastedown with the bookplate of the Comte de Chambord (calling himself Henri V of France and indicating--in print--that this volume was aquired from Maggs Brothers); front free endpaper with an ex-libris ticket without identification, and the octogonal black morocco bookplate of Michel Wittock; half-title and p. 71 with inked ownership stamp of Don Jaime de Bourbon, duc de Madrid. Fleeman 59.4R/TF/31. Faint foxing on the majority of leaves (first half dozen leaves a bit more affected), a few leaves with other minor discoloration, front free endpaper and first four leaves creased at lower right, spine slightly and uniformly sunned, covers with insignificant small abrasions, but generally A VERY APPEALING COPY, the text fresh and clean, and the binding with lustrous leather, bright gilt, and only very minor signs of use. This is an obscure French translation of Samuel Johnson's most popular narrative, our copy with distinguished provenance and in a lovely binding. Written in the evenings of a single week to help pay for the funeral of Johnson's mother, "Rasselas," first printed in 1759, became the most thoroughly translated and disseminated work by Johnson during his lifetime. Marked by wisdom, humanity, melancholy, and even humor, the novel accomplishes the impressive goal of being artistically successful, even uplifting, while demonstrating the somber truth that there is no genuine happiness in the world. Our edition is a new translation that, according to Fleeman, was done by one Mme. Du Fresne, of whom little is known except that she died at 20. With the death in 1831 of Charles Hering Jr., the Hering bindery was carried on by his brothers James and Henry, the former being head of the workshop. Frédéric Guillaume Muller (d. 1836) then joined the Herings from 1830 to 1834, after which he purchased the tools of the recently deceased Joseph Thouvenin, set up business for himself, and gained recognition on his own, earning the bronze medal for work shown at the 1834 exhibition. As can be seen here, the short-lived Hering & Muller portion of the business produced bindings characterized by the same elegance and care in execution evident in the work of earlier iterations of the Hering firm. The fact that our book's original owner was the last Dauphin of France suggests something of the high repute attached to the Hering name at the time, even outside England. After the Dauphin owned it, the volume came into the possession of the Comte de Chambord (1820-83), who, in the confused warp and woof of 19th century French politics, became (the disputed) King of France as Henri V for one week (2-9 August 1830), after his grandfather and uncle abdicated in the wake of the July Revolution. The 10-year-old Henri was himself forced into exile for some 40 years, after which he was invited to ascend to the throne; this elevation was aborted, however, (and the French monarchy came to its final end) when Henri insisted as a precondition the use of the older red fleur de lys design for the country's flag (as opposed to the tricolor adopted in 1794). There must have been at least one intermediary owner between the Dauphin, who died in 1844, and the Comte de Chambord, who could not have owned it before 1853, the year that Maggs Brothers was founded. Our volume was ultimately acquired by Michel Wittock, whose collection of European bindings, from the Renaissance down to the present day, was one of the grandest ever assembled. Reflecting 60 years of discriminating curation, the library was auctioned (in part) through a notable four-part sale at Christie's Paris in 2011.

        Nippon. Archiv zur Beschreibung von Japan und dessen Neben- und Schutzländern: jezo mit den südlichen Kurilen, Krafto, Koorai und den Liukiu-Inseln, nach japanischen und europäischen Schriften und eigenen Beobachtungen bearbeitet.

      Leiden, Siebold, 1832-1852. 7 parts bound in 7 volumes. Folio (370 x 275mm). With 364 (of 365) plates, many folding or double-page. 19th century half morocco (2 text volumes bound to match). First and only edition of this magnificent publication depicting for the first time on a large scale the ethnography and geography of Japan. The present copy has 29 plates and 227 text pages in the Ernst Wasmuth Verlag reprint of 1930 and has one plate not called for in the collation made by Bernard Quaritch in 1869, however lacks the frontispiece to the first volume as well as the 'Schilling-Cannstadt Denkmahl' plate. The following text is lacking: Abtheilung I one leaf 'Inhalt des ersten Heftes'; Abtheilung V pp. 45-186; Abtheilung VI pages 65-72; Abtheilung VII pp. 165-328.//Not included in the total count of 365 plates are 19 appendix plates of Japanese text (1 plate in Abtheilung 5 and 18 numbered plates in Abtheilung 7), 25 numbered plates of Japanese text Wa Nen Kei "Annales Japonici" as well as 2 unnumbered plates belonging to this section and the lithographed title (Abtheilung 3). All these plates are listed in the Quaritch collation in the section plates 'Stein-tafeln' and for this reason there seems to be some confusion about the total number of plates. A few copies were issued on large paper, our copy is the normal issue.///The work remained unfinished and 7 parts were published dealing with the following subjects: Mathematical and physical geography of Japan, hydrographical and geological maps, views and tables; People and state, a description of the inhabitants of Japan, their manners and customs, government and administration, with illustrations; Contributions to the history of Japan: mythology, history, archaeology, numismatics, with chronological maps, illustrations and tables; Arts and sciences, in particular the Japanese language and literature, with excerpts from original texts and illustrations; Religion: description of the deities, deified rulers, temples and monasteries, priests, monks and nuns, religious monuments, utensils and dress in Shintoism and Buddhism; Agriculture, industry and commerce with descriptions of related natural products and illustrations of commercial crops, animals, machines and implements; Neighbouring countries of Japan: Ezo with the Southern Kurile Islands, Korea and the Ryukyu Islands.//Von Siebold was the most important European scientist who almost single handedly put Japanese studies on the European academic map. In 1823 he was posted to Japan as a surgeon to the Dutch factory on Deshima. He played a significant role in introducing Japan to the West and in his introduction of Western science to Japan. For the illustrations of the present work use was made of Siebold's large ethnographical collection, some 4700 items, which was opened to the public in 1831 and bought by the Dutch government in 1837./The Dutch were the only western nation to trade with Japan from 1639 until the opening of Japan by Perry. Von Siebold (1796-1866) was a German surgeon in service of the Dutch East India Company. 'Despite the restrictions imposed on the freedom of movement of the inhabitants, Siebold found life on the settlement quite comfortable... Since the late eighteenth century, when it had become easier to import and read books in Dutch, groups of scholars had started to engage themselves in the study of Western medicine. Dutch became the medium for these 'Dutch Studies', Rangaku. The main activities of these scholars, 'Rangakusha', were centered around the capital Edo, but all over the country was a growing interest in Western sciences during Siebold's time on Deshima... Soon, Siebold started teaching on a regular basis, mainly on the subjects of the natural sciences and medicine. In return, his students taught him Japanese and a little written Chinese. In addition, his students helped him with his botanical research... Siebold had secured the help of the Japanese painter Kawahara Keiga (1786-1865?) to make visual records of landscapes, buildings and other things which were physically impossible to collect" (K. Vos, 'Assignment Japan, Von Siebold pioneer and collector', pp. 10-13). During Siebold's stay in Edo he met the court astronomer Takahashi Sakuzaemon, the famous geographer Mogami Tokunai and Mamiya Rinzo, who provided Siebold with important information, maps etc. Siebold was expelled from Japan in the autumn of 1829 because maps were considered by the authorities as secret. Siebold had managed already to ship his collection to Batavia. However some of his Japanese friends were imprisoned. //Cordier 477-48; Assignment Japan, Von Siebold pioneer and collector pp. 22-25; Nipponalia 1135; Alt-Japan Katalog 1396.

        Platycercus Barnardi. Barnard's Parrakeet

      [London: E. Lear, 1832. Hand-coloured lithograph, finished with gum arabic, by Lear, printed by Charles Hullmandel. Wove paper. A fine example of the work of "perhaps the greatest draughtsman of birds in European culture" (Philip Hofer). This image is from Lear's masterpiece Illustrations of the Family Psittacidae, or Parrots, a work which combines 'the most exacting scientific naturalism with a masterly sense of design and intuitive sympathy for animal intelligence" (Susan Hayman, Edward Lear's Birds 1980). This excellent image is from Lear's first published work, limited to 175 copies, and the first English ornithological work published in folio format with lithographic plates. Lear began work on this monograph when he was only eighteen and carefully supervised every step of the publication. He made many of his original sketches from the live specimens at the Regent's Park Zoological Gardens, and then prepared numerous preliminary lithographs. Many of these appear not to have satisfied him, for they were never published. Christine Jackson describes Lear's painstaking approach to his work: "Lear worked in great detail, outlining every feather and filling in the details with fine lines. This scientific accuracy extended to every part of the bird, from the beak to the claws... The colouring was done with opaque watercolours with touches of egg-white for parts of the feathers requiring sheen, and for the eye, to add that life-like touch" ( Bird Illustrators: Some Artists in Early Lithography, London: 1975). Cf. Anker 283; cf. Fine Bird Books (1990) p. 115; cf. Nissen IVB 536; cf. Ray The Illustrator and the Book 90; Zimmer pp.380-381.

        Honey Buzzard

      1832 - John Gould (1804-1881) An illustration from The Birds of Europe London, 1832-1837 Original hand-colored lithograph 32 1/2" x 26" framed John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became an expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country's leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. Gould's 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, his wife Elizabeth and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. His wife and other artists were able to transfer his sketches to stone; hand print and hand-color them. One of the most accomplished and engaging natural history works of the 19th century, The Birds of Europe was also the first of Gould's works to feature plates by Edward Lear. A total of sixty-eight images bear Lear's name, and they are among the most remarkable bird drawings ever made. Lear endowed his illustrations with some measure of his own whimsy and intelligence, and his style is at once fluidly spontaneous and realistically precise. In this way, the images of The Birds of Europe are amazingly distinctive, while also highly realistic. Gould undertook this work partly in an 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.

        Bernicle Goose. Anser Leucopsis

      London 1832 - John Gould (1804-1881). A selection from Gould's Birds of Europe, published in London 1832-1837, printed by C. Hullmandel. Lithograph with original hand-coloring measuring 14 ½” x 21 ½”. Condition: Very good. John Gould was without question the most prolific natural history artist of the nineteenth century. He worked during a period of intense fascination with discoveries in natural history, especially regarding knowledge of the wildlife of exotic lands. Gould shared the romantic enthusiasm of his time for such subjects, as well as the popular impulse to catalogue exotic wildlife. He combined his passion for natural history with outstanding scientific, artistic, and entrepreneurial talents. Drawing on these abilities, he embarked on a series of projects that would eventually make him the leading publisher of ornithological illustrations in Victorian Britain. The preparatory drawings that he produced were passed on for completion to skilled illustrators, most notably his wife, Elizabeth, and Edward Lear. The plates which resulted from such partnerships were a splendid fusion of art and science, with a scope that remains unsurpassed. Stunning and at the same time highly accurate, Gould's illustrations linked beauty to science, and science to beauty, in and an unprecedented manner. Gould’s unparalleled career spanned five decades, and he produced a monumental series of books of birds throughout the world. Gould planned the Birds of Europe in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. In his preface he stated his mission: “the Birds of Europe, in which we are, or ought to be, most interested, have not received that degree of attention which they naturally demand. The present work has been undertaken to supply that deficiency.” 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 birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species. Rich, vibrant color is an important attribute of the best 19th Century prints. Many prints by John Gould found on the market today have modern color that affects both the appearance and the value of these great works. John Gould died in 1881 still actively illustrating and producing fine bird books. His stock of unsold copies, unbound text and plates in various states, lithographic stones, drawings and paintings, amounted to nearly three tons. Many of the uncolored pulls from his monumental "Birds of Europe" have been re-colored in the last thirty years, and these are often found on the market. Fortunately, the difference between original and modern color can be discerned by looking carefully at the print. When modern color is applied to 180 year old paper, the application is inconsistent; the cellulose of the aged paper has begun to breakdown and can no longer evenly absorb the watercolors, resulting in a splotchy uneven appearance All of the Gould bird prints in Arader Galleries' inventory have exquisite original color. The vastly superior quality of original color can be clearly differentiated from new color by its smooth and even appearance. The inks have noticeably deeper, richer tones. The difference can also be seen in the lovely surface "sheen" that results from the application of gum arabic when the lithograph was first pulled. The hand coloring of engravings and lithographs reached its zenith in the 19th Century. Works that still display their original color are more rewarding to view, and will better hold their value in the years to come.

        Iconografia della Fauna Italica per le quattro classi degli Animali Vertebrati. Tomo I. MAMMIFERI E UCCELLI.

      Roma, dalla tipografia Salviucci, 1832-1841. Folio (373 x 263mm). With 47 (of 48) fine hand-coloured lithographed plates and descriptive text. Contemporary green half calf, spine with 2 red gilt lettered labels. The complete section on mammals with 24 plates and text, the second section on birds lacks plate 35 Emberiza durazzi, Erythrospiza githaginea and the explanatory text to this plate. Three volumes were published of this monumental fauna of Italy. The second volume deals with amphibians and the third volume with fishes. The splendid plates were lithographed by Battistelli, most of them from drawings by Carolus Ruspi and Petrus Quattochi. Charles Lucien Bonaparte was the nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte. Despite his family connections and the disruptions that followed the Napoleonic era, he became a competent and highly respected naturalist. "Now he intended to increase the knowledge of all branches of the vertebrates by his researches and theoretical works; with his 'Iconografia della fauna Italica', begun in 1832 and completed in 1841, he added to the understanding of Italian mammals, reptiles, amphibia, and fishes, as well as birds' (Stresemann. Ornithology p. 158). The lacking plate and the explanatory text to this plate was never bound in. A fine copy.//Provenance: Armorial book plate of Frederick Du Cane Godman, famous English ornithologist and entomologist, as well as the book plate of Sir Giles Loder.//Nissen ZBI, 459; Wood p. 248; Anker 48.

        HISTOIRE DE RASSELAS, PRINCE D'ABYSSINIE

      Chez Baudry, Paris 1832 - Owned, in turn, by the Final Dauphin, the Last King of France, and Michel Wittock. 219 x 156 mm (8 5/8 x 6 1/8"). 2 p.l., xxiv, 395 pp. Translated by Madame Du Fresne. FINE CONTEMPORARY GREEN STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, GILT, BY HERING & MULLER (their ticket on front pastedown, and stamp-signed in gilt by Muller at tail of spine), covers framed by multiple gilt rules with decorative cornerpieces, center of each cover with large arms of Louis Antoine, Duke of Angoulême, (the last) Dauphin of France (1775-1844); flat spine gilt in one long and one short panel tooled with a guilloche roll highlighted with rosettes and fleurs-de-lys; gilt titling, densely gilt turn-ins, textured pale yellow endpapers, all edges gilt. Text in French and English on facing pages. Front pastedown with the bookplate of the Comte de Chambord (calling himself Henri V of France and indicating--in print--that this volume was aquired from Maggs Brothers); front free endpaper with an ex-libris ticket without identification, and the octogonal black morocco bookplate of Michel Wittock; half-title and p. 71 with inked ownership stamp of Don Jaime de Bourbon, duc de Madrid. Fleeman 59.4R/TF/31. Faint foxing on the majority of leaves (first half dozen leaves a bit more affected), a few leaves with other minor discoloration, front free endpaper and first four leaves creased at lower right, spine slightly and uniformly sunned, covers with insignificant small abrasions, but generally A VERY APPEALING COPY, the text fresh and clean, and the binding with lustrous leather, bright gilt, and only very minor signs of use. This is an obscure French translation of Samuel Johnson's most popular narrative, our copy with distinguished provenance and in a lovely binding. Written in the evenings of a single week to help pay for the funeral of Johnson's mother, "Rasselas," first printed in 1759, became the most thoroughly translated and disseminated work by Johnson during his lifetime. Marked by wisdom, humanity, melancholy, and even humor, the novel accomplishes the impressive goal of being artistically successful, even uplifting, while demonstrating the somber truth that there is no genuine happiness in the world. Our edition is a new translation that, according to Fleeman, was done by one Mme. Du Fresne, of whom little is known except that she died at 20. With the death in 1831 of Charles Hering Jr., the Hering bindery was carried on by his brothers James and Henry, the former being head of the workshop. Frédéric Guillaume Muller (d. 1836) then joined the Herings from 1830 to 1834, after which he purchased the tools of the recently deceased Joseph Thouvenin, set up business for himself, and gained recognition on his own, earning the bronze medal for work shown at the 1834 exhibition. As can be seen here, the short-lived Hering & Muller portion of the business produced bindings characterized by the same elegance and care in execution evident in the work of earlier iterations of the Hering firm. The fact that our book's original owner was the last Dauphin of France suggests something of the high repute attached to the Hering name at the time, even outside England. After the Dauphin owned it, the volume came into the possession of the Comte de Chambord (1820-83), who, in the confused warp and woof of 19th century French politics, became (the disputed) King of France as Henri V for one week (2-9 August 1830), after his grandfather and uncle abdicated in the wake of the July Revolution. The 10-year-old Henri was himself forced into exile for some 40 years, after which he was invited to ascend to the throne; this elevation was aborted, however, (and the French monarchy came to its final end) when Henri insisted as a precondition the use of the older red fleur de lys design for the country's flag (as opposed to the tricolor adopted in 1794). There must have been at least one intermediary owner between the Dauphin, who died in 1844, and the Comte de Chambord, who could not have owned it b [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Bonelli’s Eagle

      1832 - John Gould (1804-1881) An illustration from The Birds of Europe London, 1832-1837 Original hand-colored lithograph 32 1/2" x 26" framed John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became an expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country's leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. Gould's 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, his wife Elizabeth and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. His wife and other artists were able to transfer his sketches to stone; hand print and hand-color them. One of the most accomplished and engaging natural history works of the 19th century, The Birds of Europe was also the first of Gould's works to feature plates by Edward Lear. A total of sixty-eight images bear Lear's name, and they are among the most remarkable bird drawings ever made. Lear endowed his illustrations with some measure of his own whimsy and intelligence, and his style is at once fluidly spontaneous and realistically precise. In this way, the images of The Birds of Europe are amazingly distinctive, while also highly realistic. Gould undertook this work partly in an 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.

        Memoria histórica sobre las operaciones e incidencias de la División Libertadora, a las órdenes del Gen. D. Juan Antonio Alvarez de Arenales en su segúnda campaña a la sierra del Perú, en 1821.

      Buenos Aires, Imprenta de la Gazeta Mercantil, 1832. - 8vo. xv + 247 + [1 blank]p + [5]f including index and errata leaf. With lithographed portrait, 1 folding plan with woodcut vignette surrounded by ornamental border, 1 lithographed battle plan & 1 folding lithographed map. Contemporary half roan, spine decorated in gilt; worn. An evaluation of the second Peruvian campaign of 1821 successfully led by Brigadier Juan Antonio Alvarez de Arenales (1770-1830), a veteran professional soldier turned inspiring guerillero leader, whom General San Martín had sent into the mountains with two battalions to stir up revolt against the Spaniards. Arenales’ small force gained adherents from the royalists, won over cities, and became known as the ‘División Libertadora’. This study by Colonel José Arenales, the brigadier’s son, is based on original documents, some of which are here first published in part II (‘appendix’) on pp145-247. The folding plan contains statistics on the military strength of the Army of Liberation of Peru under General San Martín during the first campaign in 1820. The fine portrait of Brigadier Arenales and the campaign map and plan in lithography are by Bacle & Co, who pioneered the process in Buenos Aires. Added at the end are the contents of the author’s letter to Juan Manuel de Rosas, governor of Buenos Aires, to whom he presents the flag of his father’s division together with a copy of this book, and the dictator’s letter of thanks. Some light toning, light worming in inner blank margins at beginning and end, otherwise a good copy from the author’s library with some textual corrections in ink and with his book stamp in blank margin of title and first page of introduction.

        Experimental researches in electricity. Bound extracts

      1832-56, London 1832 - Faraday, Michael (1791-1867). Experimental researches in electricity. 30 series of papers, plus supplement to the 11th series, extracted from Philosophical Transactions. 4to. 18 plates. [London, 1832-56]. 285 x 224 mm. Extracts bound in 1 vol., modern morocco gilt. Fine set.First Editions. An extremely rare, fine complete set of Faraday's epochal papers on electricity, as they originally appeared in the Philosophical Transactions over 24 years. It was through his "Experimental researches" that Faraday announced his major findings relating to electricity and magnetism, the most important of which was his discovery of the means of generating electricity from electro-magnetic induction-the principle behind the dynamo and the transformer, and the foundation of the modern use of electricity. The "Experimental researches" also contain Faraday's demonstration of the identity of all forms of electricity, his discovery of the laws of electrolysis, his announcement of the fundamental relations between light and magnetism, his first general theory of electricity as a function of interparticulate strain, and his last series of researches on magnetism, containing the germ of the modern field theory, in which Faraday rejected his earlier model of the transmission of magnetic energy in favor of one locating the manifestation of magnetic energy in the field surrounding the magnet. Our set includes Faraday's 30th and final series of the "Experimental researches," published in 1856 and not included in the book-form edition (1839-55) or in the collected papers, like ours, cited as no. 64 in Dibner's Heralds of Science; this 30th series contains Faraday's papers on "Constancy of differential magnecrystallic force in different media" (no. 38), "Action of heat on magnecrystals" (no. 39), and "Effect of heat upon the absolute magnetic force of bodies" (no. 40).

        A Description of the Genus Pinus, with directions relative to the cultivation, and remarks on the uses of the several species: also descriptions of many other new species of the family Coniferæ

      Messrs. Weddell, London 1832 - Expertly bound to style in red straight-grained half morocco over contemporary green/grey paper-covered boards, the flat spines divided into six compartments by single gilt fillets, lettered in gilt in the second, third and fourth compartments, gilt Provenance: Edward Duke (armorial bookplate); William Russell Grace (1832-1904, armorial bookplate) A fine copy of the first octavo edition of Lambert's great work on the pine trees of the world. The earliest edition of Lambert's important monograph was published in two large folio volumes between 1803 and 1824. It then appeared in various formats with varying numbers of plates, including the present octavo edition, until the Bohn folio issue of 1842. Lowndes notes that the fine plates in the octavo edition are made up from "sections of some of the plates" from the larger folio work and new versions of other plates. The fine plates retain much of the power of their larger folio cousins. Stafleu tacitly agrees with Great Flower Books assessment of this book as one of the most bibliographically complex of all natural history works when he notes that "All copies show differences": this copy in addition to having three or four more plates than the accepted norm, is also (like the de Belder copy) without the appendix leaves which are found at the end of some copies. Irish-born William Russell Grace, co-founder of W.R Grace and Co., was an American success story who rose from relative poverty to be one of the richest men in the country. He was also a noted philanthropist and served two terms as Mayor of New York.
