        TragÂœdiæ superstites et deperditarum fragmenta

      Oxford: Typographeo Academico,, 1832. ex recensione G. Dindorfii. Octavo (219 x 132 mm). Presentation(?) binding of contemporary red morocco, flat spine gilt ruled on and around the raised bands, two-line gilt border on sides, gilt arms of Oxford University on back cover, richly gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt, pale yellow coated endpapers. Printed in Greek. Bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst, Lancashire retail chemist and bibliophile, a discriminating collector of 18th-century literature in well-preserved contemporary bindings. Touch of foxing to title page. An excellent copy in a lovely period binding. First of this edition, edited by the eminent classical scholar Karl Wilhelm Dindorf (1802-1883), appearing on the title page under the Latinized form of his name, Gulielmus Dindorfii. "The most productive of the Continental scholars brought in by Gaisford [Thomas Gaisford, Delegate of the Press] was Karl Wilhelm Dindorf, who with his brother Ludwig supplied many classical edition. Wilhelm's edition of Aeschylus appeared in 1832... Some of Dindorf's editions were widely used in Britain; the small number of copies located in Continental libraries - only three of the Aeschylus and Demsothenes - may reflect competition from rival editions and from pirated editions of the Oxford printings" (Simon Eliot ed., The History of the Oxford University Press, II p. 447). Provenance: front cover with gilt supralibros of William Grenville, first Baron Grenville, (1759-1834), Prime Minister 1806-07, whose brief ministry oversaw the abolition of the slave trade. Grenville was Chancellor of Oxford from 1810 until 1834, so this may be a presentation copy from the university press. An attractive edition of Aeschylus and a fine exemplar of Oxford's demure and distinguished presswork at this period.

        Voyage de découvertes autour du monde et à la recherche de La Pérouse.

      Paris: Librairie Encyclopédique de Roret, 1832-33. Ten octavo text volumes bound as five, and folio atlas with a portrait of Dumont d'Urville and 20 maps and plates (six coloured);a good set in a recent French period style quarter navy polished calf, spines lettered numbered and banded in gilt. This is a notably scarce version of the official account of Dumont d'Urville's first voyage, publishing the voyage narrative and a careful selection of the fine lithographic plates.The Astrolabe was renamed for this voyage in honour of La Pérouse's lost ship; it had previously sailed as the Coquille in Duperrey's expedition in the early 1820s, with Dumont d'Urville serving as second-in-command. The expedition visited Australia, New Zealand and the South Pacific in 1826-29; it was a major scientific undertaking and a large number of natural history specimens were collected returned to France. Likewise, the haul of geographical and ethnological information was considerable. The full publication of the voyage was extensive, numbering some 13 text volumes accompanied by five folio atlas volumes. Exclusive and expensive, the official account was beyond the means of most readers, hence the desire for this abridged and accessible edition. It includes as narrative text the Historique section of the full voyage account, though the title has been changed to include the words "et à la recherche de La Pérouse", and has a selection of eight maps and 12 plates as a separately bound atlas volume. Three of the twelve plates issued with this edition are Australian Aboriginal studies lithographed from drawings by the official artist Louis Sainson. A coloured portrait plate of two Aboriginal men is followed by depictions of two encounters, one at the Georges River and the other at Jervis Bay. Of additional interest are two coloured Maori portrait plates, and further studies of the native inhabitants of New Guinea, Vanikoro and Tikopia. The maps are notable as some of the finest ever produced of the Pacific, and include charts of Australia and New Zealand, New Guinea, Fiji, Tonga and Vanikoro.One of the primary objectives of the voyage was to confirm the fate of the ill-fated La Pérouse expedition, a long-standing source of mystery and speculation. The wreck of La Pérouse's Astrolabe had been reported a few years previously by Peter Dillon, the South Seas trader, suggesting that the island of Vanikoro (present day Solomons) was the French explorer's final resting place. Dumont d'Urville's expedition confirmed this, and erected a monument to La Pérouse and his men upon the island (the ceremony is memorialised in a fine lithographed plate included in the atlas to this edition).This is surprisingly rare on the market and not noted by several standard bibliographies. This edition was only noted for the Ferguson Addenda volume from the set of the text in the State Library of Victoria and from a copy of the atlas volume that appeared (without text) in a Bernard Quaritch catalogue in 1983. McLaren too could cite the atlas only from the Ferguson/Quaritch entry. Some browning and foxing of the text as sometimes found with this paper stock, also affecting a few plates.

        Fine collection of five Autograph Letters Signed with initials ('E.F.G') (Edward, 1809-1883, Poet, Author of Omar Khayam)

      - four to his friend Captain Ablett Pasifull (1832-1910, of Felixstowe), and 1 to Mary Crabbe (b. circa 1832), with transcriptions, about employing either Captain Pasifull or pilot Jack Newson to skipper "my little Ship", saying "I forget Ablett, if I told you yesterday, that when I sent word to Messrs. Grimwood", (Tom & his brother G. Grimwood), "that Jack [Newson] was free, I also sent them word that you were looking out for a Berth . I had nothing to do but to tell the simple Truth, so far as I knew it . I only wish that all could be satisfied" (21st April), explaining further, "The very day after I wrote to you, Captain, I heard that the Board [of Trinity House, who licensed pilots] had given Newson leave to go with me. As I never want to part from those who deal well with me . I shall be glad if he can settle this to the satisfaction of his Brother Pilots also", but "if for any public, or private reason, it should be decided that Newson had better not go with me, then will you apprize Mr. Reed that you will?" so as to give "as long notice as possible", other than Newson "there is no one I should like half so well as yourself", he now asks Pasifull to talk to "Mrs. Darcy", since, according to Mr. Manby, "Darcy was not a Member of either the Woodbridge, or Lowestoft, Lodges, she can have no money assistance from either", but if she will bring all her husband's papers and the name of his Lodge, then "the Masons here will try and communicate with such Lodge, in her behalf", (8th May), Fitzgerald has more explaining to do, "Last Sunday I met Mr. Tom Grimwood; and he told me that his Brother had always wished for you to be his Captain, and had not meant to ask Newson. I can only positively assert that Mr. Spalding came to me from Mr Tom Grimwood to enquire if Newson were disengaged; for, though his Brother would much like to have you, he would engage Newson (if disengaged) as being his older Acquaintance. I could but answer that Newson was disengaged, as I knew; and that you were disengaged, I believed; and to that effect Mr. Spalding wrote to Mr. G. Grimwood that same night . Therefore, if you have missed Mr. G Grimwood's berth, it is not my fault but his Brother's. I could but tell the plain truth, as I knew it", further "When Mr. Quilter came here with your Brother Robert to buy my little Ship, I advised him to buy your ship instead, and you along with it. For I felt sure that he would want a bigger Vessel before long. He preferred however, beginning in a smaller way; and I told him (whether for big or little) that he could not find a better Man than yourself for Captain and Jack for Mate . Let me see you when you return .", (24th May), finally, "Jack came up from the Ferry today after Christmas meat and Groceries. Before he took boat to go home again, your letter came. I told him . that you would be only 'too glad' to take him for Master in your Yacht. And, though Jack, like a good Fellow, would have stuck to me if I had wished him, he is quite aware the Berth you offer him is a better one than mine . and you, and he, and I, may be well contented at the arrangement. You know very well . that I did not want to get him off my hands as a bad Article . My Voyages were almost confined to Lowestoft: and I found that Newson got very tired of being so much there, since his new wife attracted him homeward. He is a very clever, and, in the main, a very good Man: and I am not without hope that we shall find something for him to do in the summer", continuing "By the by, there is young Smith, of the boat Sportsman, hanging about here . Perhaps you might like him for another hand. But . I have no interest in this young man but what I hear of his Character, what I have seen of his Appearance and manner, and what I know of his Misfortunes. As to Jack: it really goes to make a merrier Christmas . He was evidently very much gratified by the good opinion you expressed of him, and said that he could never feel more confidence in anyone than your

        Voyage au Congo

      1832. First Edition . (AFRICA) DOUVILLE, Jean-Baptiste. Voyage au Congo et dans lÂ’Intérieur de lÂ’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 FrenchmanÂ’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 travelerÂ’s life, but because his book— if authentic— 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. DouvilleÂ’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 DouvilleÂ’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.

      Paris, Baillière, 1832-1837. ____ Première édition. Isidore Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire est l'inventeur du mot tératologie. Atlas illustré de 20 planches gravées de monstres. He "organised all known human and animal malformations taxonomically. Many of the principles governing abnormal development were enunciated for the first time in this work. It also introduced hundreds of names for specific malformations, many of which are still in use. For comprehensive coverage of rare anomalies it is still of value as a reference source." Garrison-Morton 534.58. "The only son of Etienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, Isidore (...) published in 1832 the first of three large volumes on monsters (...) Although the idea of seeking laws governing the formation of monsters was his father's, Isidore Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire nonetheless grouped and brought into accord, judiciously and critically, a great number of scattered facts. In 1832 he coined the word teratology, to designate the science of monsters." DSB 5, 359. Provenance : Docteur G. Nivert, Tours (cachet sec sur les faux-titres) Petits éclats à deux coiffes.
