        Théorie du Mouvement de la Lune

      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.

        Annales des Mines. Series III-VI. Atlases.

      Paris, Ecole de Mines, 1832-1866. Two series in four. Oblong folio (40.5 x 22.0 cm) with 758 (of 759? see below) engraved and lithographed plates and maps, of which 29 are hand-coloured geological maps or profiles. Contemporary uniform red cloth. Gilt titles on the spines and front boards. Marbled endpapers.= Rare atlas belonging to this early French mining journal that started as "Journal des Mines" (1794-1813) and was continued as "Annales des Mines". It includes an early geological map of Los Angeles County (1855), a mining map of California (1862), maps of the volcanoes Mount Vesuvius and Etna, and a fine map of the island of Jersey (1851) with seven colours, etc., etc. Other plates show mining equipment, including locomotives, conveyor belts, and metallurgy devices, including ovens. One plate shows the reconstruction of an exploded boiler, with a map of the debris field, and views of damaged buildings, several others depict eruptions of Mount Vesuvius. In this set, nearly all the plates are not folded, in strong contrast to copies where the plates are included in the text volumes, nearly all folded, and often trimmed. Does not include plate VIII in serie III, volume XX (either not published or never bound in; it is described as "Carte géologique de la Russie d'Europe", and should contain a "coupe géologique du nord au sud"; however, it is also lacking in the only other copy of série 3 vol. 20 that we have seen, and it is absent too in the digitalized copy at http://annales.ensmp.fr/numeros/ANN_1841_S03_20/ANN_1841_S03_20.pdf. The description of this plate in the "Explications des planches" is incomplete, as if the compiler had not seen it either). All other plates present. Corners slightly worn, some very marginal water staining, but generally in very good condition. Cat. BM(NH) [Serial Publications] 1, 83.

        New South Wales Calendar and General Post Office Directory, 1833

      Stephens & Stokes, Sydney 1832 - Octavo, folding map, engraved title-page with view of the GPO, two folding tables, two folding plates (one hand-coloured), map of Mount Victoria, two views of the Mount Victoria pass by John Carmichael, and 11 engraved advertisements for Sydney merchants. Rare Sydney almanac and directory in very good original state, with its complete suite of engraved plates and maps by three of the most important early Sydney printers and engravers, John Carmichael, William Wilson and William Moffitt.This was only the second year of publication for the New South Wales Calendar, and it features an impressive roll-call of contributors. Of particular note is the folding 'Map of the Town of Sydney 1833', engraved by Wilson from an original plan drawn by Major Thomas Mitchell, then serving as Surveyor-General of the colony. Importantly, Mitchell also contributes a 'Description of Mount Victoria', which details the building of the new pass over the Blue Mountains opened in 1832; Mitchell's report is accompanied by a map and two fine engravings by John Carmichael. Another major contribution is the interesting 'Sketch of the Colony of New South Wales; or, Australia' by the Reverend C. Pleydell N. Wilton, Chaplain of Newcastle.A fascinating inclusion is Phillip Parker King's 'Sailing Directions for the Navigation of the Inner Route, through Torres Strait; with a Description of the north eastern coast of New South Wales, from Breaksea Spit to Cape York' (pp. 19-52). Reprinted from its original appearance as an appendix to his voyage account of 1827, King's detailed reports are included here specifically 'in the hope of their being of use, and of rendering the passage of the inner route to Torres Strait more available to the commercial world', at a time when the treacherous waters of the Great Barrier Reef were playing host to increased shipping traffic.Such almanacs offer a rare opportunity to study the skill of the local engravers and printers, while also providing a detailed picture of life in the colony, whether it is the comprehensive 'Itinerary of Roads throughout New South Wales' (pp. 53-149), lists of the civil and military establishment, information regarding shipping, business and public institutions, or the 'General Post Office Directory' itself. Of great charm are the eleven engraved advertisements for local merchants including the watchmaker Broad, and Edward Fagan of the Wellington Brewery in George Street. 'In New South Wales almanacs and directories were chiefly devoted to government and commercial activities. Views of Sydney, maps and advertisements make up most of the pictorial content? Carmichael and Wilson came to the colony as free men; Moffitt was transported for stealing tea.' (Roger Butler, Printed Images in Colonial Australia 1801-1901, p. 63; for examples of some of the illustrated trade cards see also pp. 64-65). A good copy in old quarter cloth on plain boards preserving an earlier black leather label.

        English Botany: or, coloured figures of British Plants, with their essential characters, synonyms, and places of growth.

      Printed by Richard Taylor for the Proprietor, C. E. Sowerby, London 1832 - A good copy of the short 2nd edition, complete in 7 volumes, with 1,588 partially hand coloured plates by James Sowerby. In contemporary half leather bindings with gilt compartments and title labels to spines, and marbled boards. The history of the 2nd and 3rd editions of English Botany is a particularly complicated one. After the 1st edition was published (1812), C E Sowerby decided to reorganise the work so that it was more systematic. This second edition began appearing in parts in 1832 to form a 7 volume set. The preface in Vol I refers to the edition as the 'second or small edition' - the reduced size probably being a matter of cost. Confusingly Judith Sowerby added a further 5 volumes in 1842 and then called the initial 7 the 3rd edition and the new 5, the second edition. Given that the work was issued in parts, it follows that there are 2nd edition sets with later title pages on some volumes! And, just to confuse further a true 3rd edition was issued around 20 years later. The 2nd edition can be distinguished by the double plate numbering: the plates have their original 1st edition number and the reorganised 2nd edition number. This set is as follows: Vol I: preface, text and index 87pp; 193 plates and 27 bis plates - dated from the preface, title page states 'second edition'. Vol II: 1849 'third edition', text and index 85pp; 185 plates and 20 bis plates. Vol III: 1836 2nd edition; text and index 105pp; list of supplementary plates; 205 plates and 11 bis plates incl 2 folding; page marker present. Vol IV: 1837 2nd edition; text and index 81pp; errata and list of supplementary plates; 166 plates and 22 bis plates [possibly lacking 2 bis]; page marker present. Vol V: 1838 2nd edition; text and index 126pp; list of suppl plates; 236 plates and 12 bis plates; page marker. Vol VI: 1839 2nd edition; text and index 106pp; suppl plate list; 210 plates and 21 bis plates. Vol VII: 1840 2nd edition; text and index 132pp; 2 lists of suppl plates; 239 plates and 41 bis plates. The bindings are sound but with wear to edges and corners, and general scuffing. All volumes have an ownership signature to the fep. Text pages generally clean with very occasional spotting. Plates vary from exceptionally bright and clean to having brown toning and/or some spotting. The bis plates are particularly prone to the browning/spotting, and they have pencil notes to the titles. Some of the bis plates have nibbled edges suggesting that they may have been tipped in later. There is occasional marking where old bookmarks (and a pressed plant) were kept. One plate has a small repaired tear. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

With thanks to Katherine Blank for the following, from her publication, British Women and Orientalism in the Early Nineteenth Century: "Mrs. Meer Hassan Ali's book... stood as a benchmark of British knowledge about Islam in South Asia throughout the 19th and 20th centuries... Published in 1832, [the book] countered many negative stereotypes about Islam that had become common in the works of Indologists by putting forth a new perspective gleaned from Ali's decade-long stay in India, where she lived with her husband's family in Lucknow... that belonged to the Shia sect of Islam. Straying from anti-Muslim ideas present in late 18th- and early 19th-century Orientalist literature, [her book] contended that Islam called for the fair treatment of women and was closer to Christianity than most Britons previously thought. After its publication, British scholars and popular writers constantly referred to [her book] due to Ali's detailed descriptions of Muslim beliefs and practices. Ali's positive, first hand experiences with Islam helped to change the perception of Islam in early 19th-century British literature." . First British Edition. Quarter-leather.
