        Sketch of the History of Van Diemen's Land, illustrated by a map of the island and an account of the Van Diemen's Land Company.

      London: John Richardson, 1832. Octavo, with two engraved plates and a large hand-coloured folding map; very good in original boards with green cloth spine and printed label. First edition. An important account of Tasmania, intended for distribution among shareholders and prospective shareholders of the Van Diemen's Land Company, reprinting several of the company's reports, including the significant (and rare) third report of 1828 detailing the explorations of the company's explorers, Alexander Goldie, Henry Hellyer, and Joseph Fossey. It was Hellyer who 'found a cliff of slate on the Arthur River, and promptly engraved on a large slab the words "Whoever is found stealing slate from this quarry, will be dealt with according to law". Apart from the inherent unlikelihood of anyone making off with large quantities of slate, the claim of ownership is revealing for its total self-assurance in the face of the wilderness...' (People, Print and Paper). The work is wide ranging, including sections on geography, wildlife, trade and emigration.Of interest is the correspondence contained in the appendix between the governor George Arthur and his superiors in London, including Viscount Goderich and Sir George Murray, regarding the escalating tension between settlers and the Tasmanian Aborigines. The appendix also includes the substantial "Extract from the Report of the Aborigines Committee, 19th March 1830."From the library of Australiana collector Tristan Buestt with his bookplate. Some offsetting to map, closed tear neatly repaired.

Bella lettera autografa firmata indirizzata alla celebre attrice e letterata Carlotta Marchionni, che nel 1815 interpretò Francesca da Rimini nella nota tragedia del Pellico e per cui sorella lo scrittore nutrì una grande passione. Nella missiva l'autore fa riferimento a noti personaggi dell'epoca come il Prof. Marocchesi, Mad.e de Stael e Montani. ''La tua cara lettera m'ha fatto il più gran piacere..Mi ricordo con qual trasporto Mad.de Stael (la quale aveva veduto le migliori attrici francesi, inglesi e tedesche, e non era di facile contentatura) esclamava di te: Elle à la génie de son art au dernier point!.. E quel buon Montani che mi voleva tanto bene..''.

        The Miscellaneous Works of Oliver Goldsmith.

      London: 1832. Six volumes duodecimo, bound in uniform contemporary polished sheep with gilt spines. Choice example of colonial Sydney bookbinding, with each volume bearing the ticket of stationer William Moffitt of Pitt Street (most often remembered as printer and distributor of the New South Wales Calendar and General Post Office Directory). Moffitt was also a skilled engraver, credited with creating the first banknotes for New Zealand. His life is a good example of the opportunities for personal and class advancement available in New South Wales. Transported for larceny in 1827, he was assigned to the Engineer's Department and married a free immigrant. A devoted and intelligent businessman, Moffitt's retail premises on Pitt Street were considered the grandest in Sydney Town on the eve of the gold rush, and he died in 1874 with a staggering personal fortune valued in excess of £200,000. Happily, success never changed his style: 'he avoided public life, devoting himself to his business and to unobtrusive acts of private benevolence' (ADB). Joints a little rubbed, preliminary leaves of the first volume moderately browned and water stained, a very good set.

      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. Comme souvent les légendes sous les planches ont été plus ou moins rognées par le relieur. Bel exemplaire. *****. 4 tomes reliés en 3 volumes in-8.

        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.

        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.
