        Théorie du Mouvement de la Lune

      1832. Three vols. Large thick 4to, cont. green calf (joints neatly repaired), single gilt fillet round sides, sides stamped in blind with blind arabesque in center of each cover, spines gilt. Torino: Imprimerie Royale, 1832. First edition, Plana's own set with manuscript notes tipped-in, of the author's most important work. Plana (1781-1864), who studied under Lagrange and was a close friend of Stendhal, was professor of astronomy at the University of Torino and director of the astronomical observatory. "Plana's scientific contributions cover a wide range: mathematical analysis (Eulerian integrals, elliptical functions), mathematical physics (the cooling of the sphere, electrostatic induction), geodesy (the extension of an arc of latitude from Austria to France), and astronomy (particularly the theory of lunar movement)…The results were presented in the three-volume Théorie du mouvement de la lune…The work was not widely read and received criticism that was not always unfounded; but it is of notable scientific and philosophical value, and as such it was well received."-D.S.B., XI, pp. 6-7. The first volume, in particular, has a number of scientific notes and scraps of notes in Plana's hand tipped-in or laid-in.Fine set and rather uncommon.

        Neuestes Gemälde von Australien.

      Vienna: Anton Doll, 1832. Octavo, with six full-page copperplate engravings; in an attractive contemporary European binding of glazed paper masquerading as quarter calf with russet label, marbled paper spine and boards. An early German-language history of New Holland, featuring crisp images of Sydney and Hobart, after Leopold Beyer and Sainson respectively. The work begins with a helpful introduction to the voyages of exploration, including a chronological table, and is followed by a long review of New Holland (pages 39-126). Later sections detail many of the most important islands in the Pacific, including good reviews of Hawaii, New Zealand and New Guinea.All of the plates make a lovely contribution to the visual history of the Pacific. Apart from the views of Sydney and Hobart, there are also strong depictions of Carteret Bay on the Bismarck Archipelago, the funerary practices of the Solomon Islands, a scene of the restrictions for taboo in Tonga, and of a British settlement in Tahiti.The work was published as volume 30 of Schütz's series Allgemeine Erdkunde, and a list of all the titles is given at the back. As this individual volume is the only one in the series relevant to the Pacific, it is commonly sold by itself: both the Mitchell Library and National Library of Australia copies are recorded as a single volume. Some old and small library stamps throughout, early shelf-mark on front board, but a very nice copy.

The decorative border, which contains the title, is on strips of paper pasted over the edge of the map: thus Cruchley could market the same map in different formats. Engraved in the lower border is an an advert: 'This map can be had on the same scale to extend to Highgate, Hampstead, Clapton.' HOWGEGO: 304, C 1a.

        Ueber Kunst und Alterthum. (Hrsg. von Johann Wolfgang v. Goethe). 18 Hefte (alles Erschienene). Mit 5 (1 gef.) Kupfertafeln von Ch. A. Schwerdgeburth und 2 gefalt. Tabellen. Bibliophile Pappbände um 1900 mit 2 farb. Rückenschildern. Alle bedruckten Orig.-Umschläge sind beigebunden.

      Stuttgart, Cotta, 1816-1832. - Erste Ausgabe, die ersten drei Hefte erschienen mit dem erweiterten Titel ". in den Rhein-und Mayn-Gegenden". Die Zeitschrift enthält literarische, ästhetische und kulturgeschichtliche Beiträge, teils in Zusammenarbeit mit Heinrich Meyer. Die Umschläge der ersten drei Hefte sind nach einem Entwurf Goethes gestochen. Die Zeitschrift wurde "das Publikationsorgan des alten Goethe für alle kulturellen Belange . Was später als 'Maximen und Reflexionen' bekannt wurde, war in den Heften verstreut, ebenso 'zahme Xenien'" (Conrady). Das letzte Heft gaben die 'Weimarer Kunstfreunde' aus dem Nachlaß heraus; "es enthält u. a. zwei Briefe Goethes über den Abschluß des Faust, wovon der eine, an W. v. Humboldt gerichtet, am 17. März 1832, dem Tag, an dem Goethe tödlich erkrankte, geschrieben ist" (Deneke 478). Unser Exemplar besitzt alle Orig.-Broschuren. "Diese sind wichtig, da sie nicht nur die Inhaltsverzeichnisse und Verlagsanzeigen, sondern teilweise auch Nachträge und Sprüche enthalten" (Deneke). Das zweite Heft des 6. Bandes trägt einen Trauerrand, da es nach dem am 14. Juni erfolgten Tode Karl Augusts erschienen ist. Der Absatz der Hefte verlief schleppend. Noch 1909 konnten 16 der 18 Hefte geliefert werden. Diesem Umstand ist sicher diese optimale Überlieferung der Zeitschrift zu verdanken. – Unterschiedlich stockfleckig, frisches Exemplar. – Goed. IV 3, 542-571. Hagen 487. Hirzel A 327.

Original brown ribbed cloth, covers decorated in blind with elaborate arabesques; spines ruled in blind and lettered in gilt, pale lemon end papers. Beautifully rebacked with original cloth spines laid down, else a Fine set, bindings firm and gilt bright, pages pristine (and largely unopened) without a trace of foxing, illustrations crisp. Tattersfield 2.543B. Menzies 1704. Lowndes 2098. Not in Roscoe. Fine Originally published by Ritson,"who continued from time to time to make additions to his own copy, from which the present edition has been carefully printed. The original engravings, by the celebrated Bewick, have again been used; and from the improved art of wood-cut-printing, will be found superior in clearness and beauty to the first impression." (from the Advertisement). The editor of this edition, according to Lowndes, was Ritson's nephew, who added in the appendix the Tale of Robin Hood and the Monk, of which Ritson was unaware. Lowndes also concurs that the "woodcuts are better struck off and clearer." Joseph Ritson was an English antiquarian notorious for vicious and blistering criticisms of his literary contemporaries, including Thomas Warton (History of English Poetry) and, most famously, Samuel Johnson (the edition of Shakespeare produced with George Steevens in 1783 particularly irked Ritson). But the work upon which Ritson's fame rests?"his single greatest achievement"? is this exhaustive Robin Hood. "For many years he had attempted to collect all the 'historical or poetical remains' concerning Robin Hood, and his research was so thorough that only a handful of 'remains' of any significance have subsequently been discovered."

        Autograph letter signed to Mr. Chauvin presenting a copy of the official account of his voyage.

      no place: no date but circa 1832. Single sheet of laid paper, 207 x 260 mm., folded vertically to form a letter, written in a small and neat hand to first page and addressed - but not stamped - to the last, old folds; excellent. A significant letter in which the great Pacific and Antarctic explorer Dumont d'Urville presents the first parts of his official account of his first voyage to the natural historian F.J. Chauvin of Caen, active in botanical studies in the mid-nineteenth century. Chauvin's herbarium is still held at the Université de Caen, and he is remembered by several plants named in his honour.In the letter, Dumont d'Urville sends Chauvin the "first two parts" of his voyage account, in the hope that they will be of interest. It may be that he was sending the first parts of the historical narrative of the voyage, first published in 1830, but given Chauvin's botanical studies, it is probably fair to assume that he was being sent the two parts of the Botanie volume, edited by Lesson & Richard (I. Essai d'une Flore de la Nouvelle Zelande. II. Sertum Astrolabianum, Paris, 1832-4). Only as a postscript to the letter does Dumont d'Urville remember to offer his regards to Chauvin's wife and little girl.Dumont d'Urville had sailed on the Astrolabe (Duperrey's old ship the Coquille, renamed in honour of La Pérouse) from Toulon in April 1826. He was instructed to explore the principal island groups in the South Pacific, completing the work of the Duperrey voyage, on which the commander himself had been a naturalist. Because of his great interest in natural history, huge amounts of scientific data and specimens were collected, described and illustrated in sumptuous folio atlases. The expedition stopped at the Cape of Good Hope, passed through Bass Strait visiting Port Phillip, and arrived at Sydney on 1 December 1828.Extensive visits were made to both Sydney and Parramatta, where Dumont d'Urville visited Samuel Marsden; the expedition sailed for New Zealand in January 1827, explored Tasman Bay, found a pass between an island in Cook Strait and the northern shore of South Island (the island consequently named D'Urville and the strait French Strait) and worked up the coast of North Island, completing the 'most comprehensive exploration of the islands since Cook's death'. They made Tonga in April 1827, explored the Fiji Archipelago, New Britain and New Guinea. In November, after a stop at Amboina, they coasted along the north-west coast of Australia and reached Tasmania. In 1828 they continued to Vanikoro in search of traces of La Pérouse, and stopped at Guam in the Marianas, before returning via the Cape of Good Hope, reaching Marseille on 25 March 1829.

        [Ornithology] A history of British birds. by Thomas Bewick

      Newcastle printed by Charles Henry Cook, for R. E. Bewick: sold by him, Longman and Co., London; and all booksellers. 1832 8vo: xl,386; xviii,424pp. Collated and complete in two volumes: I. containing the history and description of land birds; II. containing the history and description of water birds. Illustrated throughout with engravings on wood by Thomas Bewick. Uniformly bound in contemporary full polished calf, covers framed in double gilt fillets and leaf roll in blind, spines in five compartments with two black morocco lettering pieces gilt; end papers and edges marbled. Provenance: old book plates on front paste down and front fly leaf of both volumes. A superb set, bindings tight and secure, contents very fresh and bright without a trace of foxing or browning, rich impressions of the numerous woodcuts. Not in Roscoe. OCLC Number: 12197896. Fine According to ODNB, more than 600 distinct woodblocks were engraved for this two-volume work by the time the last of eight editions was published during Bewick's lifetime. "Apart from the excellence of the principal figures, the numerous tailpiece vignettes that enlivened every spare space in the book came in for special notice. . . . [Their] narrative content . . . is often ironic and displays a mordant view of the world and human folly . . . The gritty reality of the lives of the crippled old soldiers, road menders, blind beggars, and rain-soaked packmen who inhabit Bewick's landscapes is at odds with the sentimental view of those who now reproduce his work on pots and tea towels. . . Any comparison of Bewick's work with that of his predecessors makes clear how original it appeared at the time. Not only was there truth in outline and animated posture, but the habitat was beautifully realized."

        Mitchell's Travellers Guide through the United States. A Map of the Roads, Distances, Steam Boats & Canal Routes &c.

      Philadelphia. S. Augustus Mitchell. 1832. Map, handcolored engraving, 17 x 21 1/2 on sheet 17 1/2 x 21 3/4 inches, folding as issued into gilt decorative black leather covered boards 5 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches. Cover worn, head of spine chipped, inner hinge split, previous owner's name and date of 1832 plus other pen marking on front pastedown; archivally repaired splits at several map folds, short separations at several fold intersections but overall the map is in very bright, crisp condition. There is no "single separate folded sheet" as described in the David Rumsey record for this map (there is paper residue to the front endpaper and this may have been where the folded sheet was tipped in). This is the first edition of this important map in the settlement of the United States. The map extends west to the Missouri Territory, with Mexico at the lower left corner, where Texas makes its appearance in later issues of the map. There are a total of nine map insets: Vicinity of Cincinnati; Vicinity of Albany; Vicinity of New Orleans; Vicinity of the Falls of Niagara; Vicinity of Boston; Vicinity of New York; Vicinity of Charleston; Vicinity of Baltimore and Washington; Vicinity of Philadelphia. This copy is lacking the printed index which in this edition appeared on a sheet of the same size as the map and was folded into the front cover. Shown are: Turnpike Roads, Principal travelling roads, Common roads, Canals, Rail Roads. A very handsome example of Mitchell's engraved maps, portraying the States on the eve of a rapid transformation.

        On the Economy of Machinery and Manufacturers.

      London: Charles Knight, 1832. First edition, very rare large paper issue, of Babbage's pioneering work of political economy, "a remarkable performance of a remarkable man" (Schumpeter, p. 541), and "a turning point in economic writing" (ODNB). "The first edition of On the economy of machinery and manufacturers was issued in two versions: a large-paper version, of which a small number were printed for presentation only; and the regular version of which three thousand copies were issued" (OOC). "Babbage undertook the analysis of machinery and manufacturing processes to discover ideas and techniques that could be applied to the construction of his Difference Engine no. 1, which he knew would stretch the available mechanical technology to its limits. Primary themes of the book were the division of labor and the division of mental labor, to which Babbage devoted chapters 19 and 20. His chapter on the division of mental labor was an analysis of the methods used by de Prony in the production of his celebrated mathematical tables. Babbage had seen de Prony's manuscript table in 1819, and around 1820 began planning the Difference Engine no. 1 based on the principles of division of labor. With this goal, Babbage visited factories throughout England, inspecting every machine and every industrial process. Rather than a study limited to engineering and manufacturing techniques, his book turned out to be an analysis of manufacturing processes within their economic context. Written when manufacturing was undergoing rapid development and radical change, the book represents an original contribution to British economics. "On the economy of machinery and manufacturers was also the first book on operations research, discussing topics like the regulation of power, control of raw materials, division of labor, times studies, the advantage of size in manufacturing, inventory control, and duration and replacement of machinery. On pages 166 and 167 Babbage analyzed the production of his book as an example of the cost of each step in a particular production process. The work was Babbage's most complete and professional piece of writing, and the only one of his books that went through four editions in his lifetime" (OOC). "Adam Smith had never really abandoned the belief, reasonable enough in his day, that agriculture was the principal source of British wealth; Ricardo's ideas were focused on corn; Babbage for the first time authoritatively placed the factory in the centre of the stage. The book is at once a hymn to the machine, an analysis of the development of machine-based production in the factory, and a discussion of social relations in industry... "The Economy of manufacturers established Babbage's position as a political economist and its influence is well attested, particularly on John Stuart Mill and Karl Marx. Babbage's pioneering discussion of the effect of technical development on the size of industrial organizations was followed by Mill and the prediction of the continuing increase in the size of factories, often cited as one of Marx's successful economic predictions, in fact derives from Babbage's analysis... Babbage wrote with many talents: a natural philosopher and mechanical engineer, his knowledge of factory and workshop practice was encyclopaedic; he was well-versed in relevant business practice; and he was without rival as a mathematician among contemporary British political economists (Hyman, pp. 103-4).

        Viaje alrededor del mundo hecho en los años 1768, 69, 70 y 71 por el célebre Santiago Cook, Comandante del navío del Rey El Endeavour... Traducido del francés por D. Santiago de Alvarado y de la Peña.

      Madrid: Imprenta de Don Tomás Jordan, 1832. Six volumes, duodecimo, 6 engraved plates (one in each volume), original blue printed wrappers preserved, early owner's name on the title-pages, old stamps from Barcelona library, bookplates of José Gallart Folch; a charming set in contemporary Spanish quarter calf, gilt. Very uncommon first Spanish edition of Cook's first voyage, published in 1832 as part of a series called the "New Library of Modern Voyages useful and interesting for Spanish youth."This work has a charming series of six plates which include a scene in Tahiti featuring the Chief Mourner, two New Zealand scenes (a warrior in profile, the war canoe), and concluding with a dramatic scene on board the Endeavour. The presence of the original printed wrappers bound-in is of more than passing interest as the back wrappers give an interesting overview of how the set was marketed, being sold for 6 reales per volume as they were issued whether in Madrid or in the provinces, and stressing the value of the work for the instruction of youth. Each volume would subsequently be priced 8 reales per volume.The translator, Alvarado y de la Pen?a, based his work on the French edition. He also prepared at least one other work of Australian interest, an edition of George Barrington published in Madrid circa 1815.Beddie listed copies in the Mitchell and National Library.

        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.
