        Vue de l'Entrée de Sydney-Cove. (Nouvelle Galles du Sud)

      Paris: Tastu, 1833. Lithographed view on china paper, 175 x 315 mm (image size); mounted. Good view of Sydney, taken during the visit of the French expedition of Dumont-Durville, which spent a few weeks in Sydney. The view is taken from what is now the Botanic Gardens, towards Lady Macquarie's Chair. An elegant four-in-hand carriage occupies the foreground, but it is the glimpses of Sydney beyond that are of most interest.The Astrolabe sailed via the Cape of Good Hope, through Bass Straits, stopped at Port Phillip, and arrived at Sydney on December 2, 1828. The expedition found that the local authorities were disturbed by renewed French activity in Australian waters and were actively working to forestall French settlements, with the declaration "the whole of New Holland is subject to His Britannic Majesty's Government".Governor Darling with growing anxiety watched as Dumont d'Urville went about his business in Sydney wearing full uniform, accompanied by officers similarly dressed. After a stay of only 17 days the Astrolabe sailed for New Zealand.A huge amounts of scientific data was collected described and illustrated in sumptuous folio atlases. This fine view was published soon after the expedition returned to Paris. Interestingly, at the time of this visit plans were already in place to begin work on the new Government House, as Governors Brisbane, Darling and Bourke had all complained about the residence shown here.

        Experiments and Observations on the Gastric Juice, and the Physiology of Digestion

      Plattsburgh [NY]: F.P. Allen, 1833. 4to. (218 x 135 mm), 280 pp. three wood-engraved figures in text. Original tan paper-covered boards, linen backstrip, printed paper label, cloth slipcase. Scattered foxing throughout as always, front hinge and endpapers repaired, label chipped, some paper missing from front board, else a very nice copy of a fragile book. First edition of what has been termed the greatest single contribution to the knowledge of gastric digestion. Beaumont was an army surgeon at Fort Mackinac, Michigan when he first attended Alexis St. Martin, a French Canadian woodsman who had suffered an accidental gunshot wound to the stomach. Against all probability Beaumont saved his life and, as the hole healed, used the opportunity to study the physiological process of digestion by maintaining access to St. MartinÕs stomach using a specially constructed skin flap. William Osler was fascinated by the case and, when St. Martin died at the age of 78, tried unsuccessfully to acquire his stomach for the Army Medical Museum; he later wrote: ?'To the medical bibliographer there are few more treasured Americana than the brown-backed, poorly printed octavo volume of 280 pages with the imprint Plattsburgh, Printed by F.P. Allen, 1833". The first edition is generally believed to have been 1000 copies. The only book to appear in three Grolier One Hundreds (American #38, Science #10, Medicine #61). Norman 152. Heralds of Science 130. Howes B291 (?'most important American contribution to medical science?").

        Maison du Gouverneur a Sydney

      Paris: Tastu, 1833. Lithographed view on china paper, 195 x 310 mm (image size); well preserved, mounted. Attractive view of the first Government House in Sydney, which stood on the corners of Bridge and Phillip Streets. The original cottage had been begun by Phillip in July 1788, but was much added to and extended over the following decades, until it took on the rather rambling form depicted here. The view is taken from the visit of the French expedition of Dumont-Durville, which spent a few weeks in Sydney.The Astrolabe sailed via the Cape of Good Hope, through Bass Straits, stopped at Port Phillip, and arrived at Sydney on December 2, 1828. The expedition found that the local authorities were disturbed by renewed French activity in Australian waters and were actively working to forestall French settlements, with the declaration "the whole of New Holland is subject to His Britannic Majesty's Government".Governor Darling with growing anxiety watched as Dumont d'Urville went about his business in Sydney wearing full uniform, accompanied by officers similarly dressed.

        The Life and Sketches of Curious and Odd Characters

      Boston: Published by George Clarke, 1833. First American edition. VERY GOOD. Sixteenmo. 192 pages. With twenty-four wood engravings. Original paper over boards, sympathetic modern with cloth backstrip. Titles printed on the front board in black. Wear to binding extremities of the boards; contents uniformly toned, scattered foxing. Overall in VERY GOOD ANTIQUARIAN CONDITION First American Edition, important for our study of early American illustration, now very scarce; the American Antiquarian Society copy is seriously defective. Ours is currently the only copy on the market. Three of the woodcuts are signed "A.B." which Sinclair Hamilton attributes to Abel Brown, perhaps the most influential woodcut engraver in Boston during the early 19th-century. "Bowen," he says, "was the real founder of the art of wood- engraving here, not so much by his own productions as by the stimulus he gave to the subject. He was an enthusiast, always projecting works to be illustrated in this manner, and, though rarely making a profit for himself, he was thus the cause of much being done. He was self-taught, copying the designs and methods of those English examples which in- spired him. Before his time engraving on copper and type- metal had been done here with fair success. But the aims, processes and results of wood-engraving were so well perceived and achieved in this city, that for years it possessed almost a monopoly of the business. And," our informant adds, "the work done a half century ago was really good in style and manner ; so that to-day the greatest advance noticeable is mainly due to improvements in printing, paper and ink. That Bowen was unable to command the means to succeed largely was the misfortune of the times ; that he should have strus:- gled on, year after year, in the face of reverses, poverty, and long-continued illness, is the highest proof that he possessed that spark of vital energy which we call genius." * Copies in any condition are uncommon on the market; one rarely finds a good, complete copy, as here. * REFERENCES: Sabin 41032.

        England and America. A Comparison of the Social and Politcal State of Both Nations

      London: Richard Bentley, New Burlington Street, 1833. First Edition. xii, 331, [1]; iv, 341, [1] pp. 2 vols. 8vo. Contemporary quarter tan calf and marbled boards. R.E. Narby, Bookseller & Printer, Warminster Label. Fine. Founder of the "New Colonization System" Following imprisonment, Wakefield began to study colonial affairs of Australia with an eye towards immigration. Recognizing that the depressed condition of Australian affairs was due to a lack of efficiency and sensible handling he gathered his theories for correcting the problems and first published them in "A Letter from Sydney" (London 1829) under the name Robert Gouger. It was so well done that the author was supposed to be an immigrant. He revised and refined these views for his "New Colonization System" in "England and America" as the chapter the "Art of Colonisation."The theories for his "System" were to abolish free grants of agricultural land, requiring a fixed price which would be kept low enough so that a laborer would be able to purchase land after a few years [this to reduce the number of ex-convicts laborers from receiving land for which they had no use], to regulate immigration and to use tax monies from the rental of grants to bring laborers to the colonies. One of the main results of his publications and efforts was the founding of the National Colonization Society and then the South Australian Association, the latter intended to be based upon Wakefield's theories. He was also a close advisor to the Molesworth Committee. On the appointment of Lord Durham to Canada in 1838, Wakefield became interested in that territory and is credited with having greatly assisted Durham with his famous "Report on the Affairs of British North America." He also acted as an adviser to Sir Charles Theophilus Metcalfe in Canada in the 1840's. In 1837 Wakefield had formed the New Zealand Association and spent most of years following directing the affairs of the association from England while his brother William Hayward Wakefield directed and managed it from New Zealand.

        Historia do descobrimento e conquista da India pelos Portugueses. Nova edição.

      Lisbon, typographia Rollandiana, 1833. - Small 4to. 8 vols. bound in 7. Original cloth with giltstamped title to appealingly gilt spine. Marbled endpapers. All edges red. An early history of the Portuguese discovery and conquest of India. Large portions are concerned with the exploits of Afonso de Albuquerque and Vasco da Gama, whose journey via Ormuz, Mucat (Mazcate), Qatif (Catifa), Bahrain (Baharê), Khor Fakkan (Orfacão), etc. is comparable in importance only to Columbus’s in the west, as it "opened the way for the maritime invasion of the East by Europe" (PMM 42). Da Gama’s pioneering sea voyage ranks amongst the greatest historic events of the second millennium and as "one of the defining moments in the history of exploration" (BBC History, online). It is also considered the turning point in the political history of the Arabian Gulf region, followed as it was by a prolonged period of east-west commerce, conquest and conflict. - The Portuguese historian and traveller Fernão Lopez de Castanheda (1500-59) accompanied his father, a royal officer, to Portuguese India and to the Moluccas. He spent the next ten years travelling through Asia. During this period he collected materials for his "Historia", both from personal observation and from the documents and reports of others. The work was first published in 1552-61. - Some occasional browning. Binding somewhat rubbed and bumped at extremeties, with minor worming. Provenance: From the library of Paulo Arantes with his bookplate and ownership (dated 1925) on title page. Howgego I, C67. OCLC 313028250. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Ixia Tricolor / Ixia Tricolore [Harlequin Flower]

      [C.L.F. Panckoucke, Paris 1833 - Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Victor. Very good condition apart a small, soft crease to the top left corner, and some very slight foxing at sheet edges top and right. A beautiful image from "Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs": one of greatest flower books ever published by the most celebrated flower painter of all time. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre Italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually to Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's scientific understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in his three great works: Les Liliacees (1802-1816), Les Roses (1817-1824) and the work from which this image comes Choix des plus belles fleurs. et . des plus belles fruits which was published in 36 parts with 144 plates between 1827 and 1833. The present image shows Redouté at his most assured, combining the best of his artistic background with his skill as an observer of nature. He writes in the preface to the Choix : ''It is with the benefit of experience, and encouraged by the most flattering approval of naturalists and painters of France and abroad, that I undertook took this most agreeable of botanical works. By ceaseless observation of nature, in its constancy and its variety of forms and colours, I believe that I have reached that synthesis of botanical accuracy, composition and colouration that is essential to produce the perfect image of the plant kingdom.' Cf. Hunt Redouteana 21; cf. Dunthorne p 235; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p 129; cf. Nissen BBI 1591; cf. Pritzel 7456; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8750.

        Ladies' Society Book for Promoting the Early Education of Negro Children

      London: Printed by Edward Suter for The Ladies' Society for Promoting the Early Education of Negro Children. (1833). First. Folio. Six aquatints. Twentieth-century gray morocco, gilt title on front board. Hand-lettered title page, plus twelve leaves, tipped onto stubbs, the last leaf of the text is in facsimile. A few spots on the front board, else near fine, internally fine and bright. The six aquatints had originally appeared a decade earlier in Clark's Ten Views in the Island of Antigua. The sheets for this were all published separately instead of as a single bound work (thus the absence of a printed title page).The Ladies' Society for Promoting the Early Education of Negro Children was a charity began as a result of the emancipation of the slaves by England and was partly dependent on government funding. The group operated largely by supporting the already existing schools in the West Indies, their main aim was "to assist whatever means of education may already be at hand." The stunning and beautiful aquatints illustrate the stages of harvesting and refining sugar for export, being the labor-intensive industry for which slaves were required. The text accompanying each presents an informative, if optimistic, account of life in the cane fields. Presumably these large and beautifully prepared leaves were for use in school or in fund-raising.A fascinating and strikingly beautiful volume illustrating the important role of women's' societies in achieving and furthering social justice. Extremely rare. OCLC locates a single copy of the loose sheets (otherwise conforming to this example) at the John Carter Brown Library. .

        Siphocampilus canus

      [Vienna 1833 - Lithograph, coloured by hand, by Wilhelm Sandler. Very good condition apart from some minor foxing and slight offsetting. A very fine image of a Brazilian exotic, from the deluxe, large-paper, hand-coloured issue of Pohl's masterpiece. Pohl's magisterial Plantarum Brasiliae, one of the most important Brazilian floras, was based on observations and collections that Pohl made while travelling in Brazil from 1817 to 1821. Published upon his return to Vienna, the plates were issued as outline lithographic drawings, or, as here, fully hand-coloured pictures printed on larger sheets of paper. Pohl was curator of the Vienna Natural History Museum and the Vienna Brasilian Museum. Cf. Cleveland Collections, 928; cf. Dunthorne, 226; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p.125; cf. Nissen, BBI, 1551; cf. Pritzel, 7231; cf. Stafleu & Cowan, TL2, 8103.

        Praktisk skibbyggerie.

      Et forsøg. [I-III]. Köpenhamn, B. Luno & Schneider, 1833-34. Stor 4:o. Komplett med 76 delvis utvikbara och delvis kolorerade litograferade plr. Övrig kollationering på begäran. Ngt nött skinnbd från ca 1860 med guldornerad rygg och marmorerade pärmar. Marmorerade snitt. Texten helt obetydligt lagerfläckig på några ställen. Rättelsebladet efter första delen hårt lagerfläckigt, vilket även färgat av sig på den första planschen. Åtta plr lätt nötta och solkiga i marginalen. Fem plr med små skador i marginalen. Plansch nummer 8 i första delen loss. Fem plr i tredje delen skurna i numreringen. Plansch 24 i tredje delen med minimal fläck. Med Aalborgs stiftsbiblioteks svartstpl på titelbladet och Nils Ljungzells exlibris. Fyra mellantitelblad i första delen saknas.. Mycket sällsynt i komplett skick. Prenumerantförteckningen upptar 99 exemplar varav endast 58 till privatpersoner. Första delen behandlar själva urvalet av råmaterial - ek - och planscherna visar detaljerat hur det starka respektive svaga virket ska kännas igen. Del två och tre beskriver själva byggandet och planscherna är därför mer av instruktionsritningskaraktär. Den avslutande planschen visar skeppet i färdigt skick. Diderich Hansen Funch var en av sin tids främste skeppsbyggare och låg bakom så stora projekt som t.ex. byggandet av världsomseglaren Galathea. Vid sidan av skeppsbyggandet skrev han böcker i ämnet, varav "Praktisk skibbyggerie" och "Dansk marine-ordbog" från 1846-52 är de två viktigaste

        Lettres écrites d'Égypte et de Nubie

      1833. CHAMPOLLION, Jean-François. Lettres écrites d'Égypte et de Nubie, en 1828 et 1829. Collection complète, accompagnée de trois mémoires inédits et de planches. XV-472 pp., 7 plates. (n° II et II bis on one leaf) of which 2 are folding. 8vo., 205 x 105 mm, bound in contemporary three-quarter red morocco over marbled boards. Spine gilt with a coat of arms. Paris: Firmin Didot Frères, 1833. |~||~||~||~| First Edition. A fine, handsome copy of this valuable collection of Champollion's letters from his only visit to Egypt in 1828 and 1829, and which was published shortly after his death in 1832. Known as the Franco-Tuscan Expedition, Champollion embarked on a journey to the land of the Nile along with his friend and Italian Egyptologist, Ippolito Rosellini (1800-1843), to apply their newfound knowledge of hieroglyphics to trace a geographical history of Ancient Egypt. Jean-François Champollion (1790-1832) is celebrated for his ground-breaking discoveries which were based upon his correct interpretation of the tri-lingual inscriptions on the Rossetta Stone. In 1822 he had presented his important Lettre à M. Dacier in which he corrected and greatly enlarged the list of phonetic hieroglyphs drawn up by Thomas Young and correctly deciphered the hieroglyphic forms of the names and titles of most of the Roman emperors of Egypt. Prince Ibrahim-Hilmy I, 128.

        Prospectus of the Australian Mine Exploring Company

      Sydney: Sydney Gazette Office, 1833. Letterpress sheet measuring 330 x 210 mm., with manuscript notation in Lhotsk'y hand; folded to letter size with London address and Dover "India letter" postmark; moderately rubbed with a little browning, good condition overall. Lhotsky spruiks for backers for mines in the Australian Alps; His Prospectus with manuscript notes. Unrecorded: a prospectus printed for geologist and explorer Johann Lhotsky at the Sydney Gazette detailing his ambitious plan to strike inland from Twofold Bay (Eden) to reveal mining opportunities for coal and precious metals. This exploration was to come under the banner of a newly formed entity to be called the "'Australian Mine Exploring Company". This rare and possibly unique broadside dates from the very earliest phase of practical interest in Australian mining. Indeed, any printed material relating to Lhotsky is extremely rare (his Sydney-printed Journey from Sydney to the Australian Alps is one of the rarest and valuable early Australian books).Also printed as a formal notice in the Gazette itself, Lhotsky evidently had separate sheets printed for himself, presumably at his own expense. This is the only example we have discovered and was sent by Lhotsky personally to the London bankers Frederick Huth & Co. Lhotsky has added a handwritten note that he hopes Huth will manage subscriptions in London.Johann Lhotsky was a botanist and doctor of medicine of Czech ancestry, best remembered as a pioneer explorer of the Australian Alps, and the first to traverse the Snowy River in 1834. He arrived in Sydney in 1832 and sought a government position which would allow him to conduct scientific work whilst collecting botanical and mineral specimens. However, Lhotsky's abrupt manner and wilful nature led to clashes with the small anglophile scientific community residing in Sydney during the early 1830's. Information about the life and travels of this important explorer is scant, making this prospectus and its manuscript notation a significant addition to the small body of extant printed material.Dated 19 July 1833, this prospectus predates Lhotsky's travels in the Australian Alps, and outlines a scheme to fund the project through the sale of shares at £1 10s each. In it, Lhotsky describes himself as "the first person in the colony who, by his lectures on mineralogy and geology, and by his travels and collections, has raised and excited the interests of our community upon these highly interesting and important sciences." The prospectus further outlines the plan and how the funds raised will be "employed in an extensive research of the country west of Twofold Bay, and the Australian Alps, a country where certainly the colony will be extended very soon, and where, according to the formation of the mountains, precious metals are to be expected." Lhotsky goes on to refer to his earlier experience of such work in Brazil, and how a small party of four horses and five men (!), equipped with basic provisions and able to subsist on cured kangaroo and fish, would be sufficient to make the first survey.A number of interesting contingencies are broached in the prospectus, for example, the fate of the mineral specimens collected should Lhotsky die in the wilderness is stipulated (the prospectus states a gloomy survival ratio for Australian explorers). Furthermore, the shares are to be revalued at £5 apiece if the mineral specimens indicate lucrative prospects. Above all, Australian mining is presented as holding great potential - Lhotsky boldly claims that he has 'thoroughly refuted the inveterate prejudice, that Australia is poor in mineralogical productions, that it is altogether deficient in precious metals'.The exact fate of the prospectus is not clear, although it is worth pointing out that it was docketed as being received by Huth in London in early February 1834, a few weeks after Lhotsky had already departed for the Australian Alps on January 10.

        COMPLETE SET OF THE FIRST ELEVEN SESSION LAWS OF THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL OF THE FLORIDA TERRITORY, 1822 - 1833].

      Eleven volumes, publication details and pagination provided in the listing below. Uniform 20th-century buckram, gilt leather labels. Soiling and some wear to bindings, with minor chipping to some labels. Some preliminaries detached, occasional foxing, toning, or tanning, some small ink library stamps, embossed blind-stamps, and ink ownership inscriptions to titlepages, some dampstaining, an occasional closed or repaired tear, some leaves closely trimmed, a handful of contemporary ink notations, five leaves in photo-facsimile. Overall, a very good set in decent condition. A monumental set of early Florida laws, covering the period between the first and second Seminole wars, and comprising the first eleven sessions of the legislative council for the territory of Florida. The Florida territory was formed after the region was ceded to the United States under the 1819 Adams-Onis Treaty, following the successful incursion by General Andrew Jackson's troops in 1818. Jackson was briefly military governor, but after the merging of East and part of West Florida, William Pope Duval became the first official governor of the new Territory in 1822 and the Legislative Council held its first session. The 1823 publication of the first session also includes the Treaty of Cession, Jackson's ordinances, the Act of Congress organizing the Territorial Government, the U.S. Constitution, and Spanish regulations for the allotment of lands. Not surprisingly, there is a wealth of material in these session laws regarding relations with Native Americans and African-Americans. The volumes comprising this set are exceedingly rare, with no examples at auction of any of the early sessions, and the only retail examples being the Eberstadt copy of the fourth session, sold back in 1937 for $65, and one copy of the ninth session currently in stock with us at $1500.
