        Service Afloat:

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1833. Comprising the Personal Narrative of a Naval Officer employed during the Late War; and the Journal of an Officer engaged in the Late Surveying Expedition under the Command of Captain Owen, on the Western Coast of Africa. 2 volumes bound in 1, octavo. Original red cloth, somewhat rubbed, corners worn, rebacked with the majority of the original spine laid down, pale yellow endpapers. A little rubbed, worn at the corners, small hole to the front free endpaper, light toning, modern collector's bookplate to the front pastedown, a very good copy. First and only edition, uncommon, just 8 copies on OCLC, not in BL. Brings together two naval narratives, both of which bear firsthand witness to the slave trade, and which were originally published in abbreviated form in the United Services Journal. The first narrative is attributed to Lieut. John Towne (see O'Byrne p1189), who was pressed from an East Indiaman in 1803 at the age of 17. He saw early service off Boulogne "in constant action with the enemy's flotilla and batteries," then in the West Indies, 1805-13, seeing frequent action, the destruction of the batteries at Port Louis, where he "with his own hands blew up the magazine," and Grande Terre, Guadeloupe, serving on shore with a division of seamen "at the reduction of the island and its dependencies." Towne concludes his account with an intelligent and compassionate chapter of "Thoughts and Reflections on Negro Slavery" based on his experiences in the Caribbean. The second memoir recounts experiences with Capt. William Fitzwilliam Owen's surveying cruise on the west coast of Africa. Owen had begun hydrographic work when in the East Indies in the first few years of the century, in 1815 he carried out a survey of the Great Lakes, and he "was appointed in 1821 to the sloop Leven, in which, with the brig Barracouta also under his command, he was instructed to survey the east coast of Africa from the boundary of Cape Colony to Cape Gardafui" (ODNB). Owen had been revolted by his experiences of the slave trade in the East Indies, and "was determined to stamp it out. Finding the Mazrui rulers of Mombasa under siege by their suzerain, Sayyid Said, sultan of Oman, Owen in February 1824 on his own initiative raised the siege and took the town under British protection in return for a promise by the Mazrui to abolish slavery. Though disowned by the home government, the protectorate lasted over two years." After leaving Simonstown late in 1825, the two ships carried out extensive surveys on the west coast of Africa on their way home. "At the end of 1826 Owen was appointed to the frigate Eden and as superintendent of Fernando Po, where it was intended that he should establish a colony for freed slaves". Alongside of his account of the surveying operations, the anonymous author offers a detailed description of the slave trade as carried out in West Africa. He is by no means as unambiguously opposed to the slave trade as Towne, finding justifications in the extirpation of cannibalism and of human sacrifice, but is still deeply troubled by the continuation of "so inhuman a trade".

        Herausgegeben von Dr. K.C. von Leonhard und Dr. H.G. Bronn. Jahrgang 1833-1858 & 1861-1880. [together with:] 5 index volumes 'Repertorium' covering the years 1830-1880.

      Stuttgart, E. Schweizerbart's Verlagshandlung, 1833-1880. 52 volumes. 8vo (220 x 140mm). With numerous plates and maps, some coloured. Contemporary speckled brown boards, lettered label on spines. Apart from Jahrgang 1859 and 1860, which are lacking, a fine complete set covering the years 1833 to 1880, together with all the index volumes. Jahrgang 1872 has some damage to spine and inner margin of pages due to a shell splinter. This is the beginning of the 'Neues Jahrbuch'. Previously 3 volumes had been published in 1830-1832 of the 'Jahrbuch von Mineralogie...' published in Heidelberg by Verlag von Georg Reichard. In 1833 the periodical changed its name to 'Neues Jahrbuch' and was published in Stuttgart by Schweizerbart. "... it was widely known through out the 19th century and the first quarter of the 20th century. Due to its length of publication and inclusion of papers by prominent mineralogists ... it is perhaps the best of all the many mineralogical journals published. In 1861 the founder editor, K.C. von Leonard passed the editorship of the 'Neues Jahrbuch' to his son Gustav, who in association with his co-editor, G. Bronn continued to bring out the journal. In 1878, Gustav died and Geinitz continued as editior (Schuh, Biobliography of Mineralogy). A fine copy is this rare and important mineralogical periodical.//Provenance: Small library stamp on verso of title of the 'Fürstliche Hofbibliothek Donaueschingen'.

        Rosier des Indes jaune [Hume's Blush Tea-scented China]

      Paris: [C.L.F. Panckoucke, 1833. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Bessin. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling. 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.'

(The other has the date on the title page.) A comprehensive system of criminal law which, while not adopted in the United States, is still influential today because it is the first complete penal code built on Jeremy Bentham's principles of codification. First published in 1828, Hicks marvels at the scope and clear organization of this code and notes that Bentham, Hugo, Lafayette, Story, Marshall, Madison, Kent and Jefferson considered it "the most comprehensive and enlightened system of criminal law that has ever been presented to the world." A notably humane code, it is important for its advocacy of prevention rather than punishment. Livingston was a senator from Louisiana and later a member of Andrew Jackson's cabinet.

        Hayne Hudjihini Eagle of Delight

      Philadelphia: Key & Biddle, 1833. Hand-coloured lithograph. In excellent condition. A fine image from McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America': `One of the most important [works] ever published on the American Indians' (Field),` a landmark in American culture' (Horan) and an invaluable contemporary record of a vanished way of life. This very nice example of Hayne Hudjihini's portrait gives a hint of the beauty and charm that captivated President Monroe, Thomas McKenney and members of the Cabinet. She was one of Shaumonekusse's five wives, and was thought to be the most beautiful of all the Native American wives who visited Washington. She was eighteen or nineteen when King painted her portrait. Sadly, she died of the measles soon after returning home. McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America' has long been renowned for its faithful portraits of Native Americans. The portraits are largely based on paintings by the artist Charles Bird King, who was employed by the War Department to paint the Indian delegates visiting Washington D.C., forming the basis of the War Department's Indian Gallery. Most of King's original paintings were subsequently destroyed in a fire at the Smithsonian, and their appearance in McKenney and Hall's magnificent work is thus our only record of the likenesses of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the nineteenth century. Numbered among King's sitters were Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Keokuk, and Black Hawk. After six years as Superintendent of Indian Trade, Thomas McKenney had become concerned for the survival of the Western tribes. He had observed unscrupulous individuals taking advantage of the Native Americans for profit, and his vocal warnings about their future prompted his appointment by President Monroe to the Office of Indian Affairs. As first director, McKenney was to improve the administration of Indian programs in various government offices. His first trip was during the summer of 1826 to the Lake Superior area for a treaty with the Chippewa, opening mineral rights on their land. In 1827, he journeyed west again for a treaty with the Chippewa, Menominee , and Winnebago in the present state of Michigan. His journeys provided an opportunity to become acquainted with Native American tribes. When President Jackson dismissed him from his government post in 1830, McKenney was able to turn more of his attention to his publishing project. Within a few years, he was joined by James Hall, a lawyer who had written extensively about the west. McKenney and Hall saw their work as a way of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture. (Gilreath). Cf. Howes M129; cf. Bennett 79; cf. Field 992; cf.

      Paris, J.Tastu, 1833. 2 volumes. Folio (525 x 345mm). With 239 lithographed plates of which 62 hand-coloured 8 (6 double-page) maps of which one coloured and 2 identical portraits of Dumont d'Urville of which one on India paper. In period style half calf, richly gilt decorated spine with 2 gilt lettered black labels. This atlas is of particular interest for the Australian and New Zealand region and the plates include 26 of New Holland, 14 of Van Diemens Land, 31 of New Zealand, 29 of Tonga, 6 of Fiji, 7 of Guam and 17 of New Guinea. Both Sydney and Parramatta are described and illustrated in the Atlas Historique, and the illustrations of Port Phillip are the first of to-day's Melbourne. The majority of the plates are by Louis Auguste de Sainson, the official artist of the expedition and show views, ethnographical portraits and artifacts, scenes of daily life, views of ports and places of anchorage, arms and utensils./This important voyage was one in a great series undertaken by the French government in the late 18th and early 19th centuries for scientific and political purposes. Led by Jules Dumont d'Urville, its intention 'was to gain additional information about the principal groups of islands in the Pacific and to augment the mass of scientific data acquired by Louis Duperrey. The Astrolabe sailed south, around the Cape of Good Hope, and arrived at Port Jackson. Proceeding to New Zealand, its coast, especially the southern part of Cook Strait, was surveyed with great care. Tonga and parts of the Fiji Archipeligo were explored, then New Britain, New Guinea, Amboina, Tasmania, Vanikoro, Guam and Java. The return home was by way of Mauritius and the Cape of Good Hope. Huge amounts of scientific materials were collected and published' (Hill p. 88). The plates, apart from a very few with some foxing, are exceptionally clean.//B.M. (Nat. Hist.)II.
