        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.

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.

Ehrenberg was unable to regard the "Körner" or "Kugeln" he described as cells, with all that implied because the necessary conceptual resources for that inference had still to be formulated. In Ehrenberg's own terms, however these "granules" did possess a definite theoretical significance: that helped to discredit a notion put forward by others, that the gray matter of the brain was a homogenous, amorphous mass." Clarke & Jacyna, pp.60-61 - "Purynie gave Ehrenberg the credit for first showing the existence of "ganglionic granules (Körner) in the ganglia; this discovery had instigated the investigations by Purkyne himself to ascertain the complete topography of these structures in the nervous system. He was struck by the "Analogie" between Ehrenberg's granules and those found in the cerebral hemispheres as well as in the other parts of the brain, such as the cerebellar cortex where he discovered what was later to be known as "Purkyne's cell."

        Voyage de la Corvette l'Astrolabe exécuté par ordre du Roi pendant les années 1826, 1827, 1828, 1829, sous le commandement de M.J. Dumont d'Urville: ATLAS ZOOLOGIQUE,.

      par J.C.R. Quoy et J.P. Gaimard. Paris, J. Tastu, 1833. Large-folio (525 x 345mm). With 192 (185 fine colour-printed and beautifully hand-finished) engraved plates. In period style half calf, richly gilt decorated spine with 2 gilt lettered black labels. The complete zoological atlas of this famous French expedition to the Pacific. Dumont d'Urville made 3 major voyages to the Pacific. 'His first as second-in-command to Louis Isidore Duperrey, was on the Coquille in 1822-1825. His two voyages in command, in 1826-1829 and 1837-1840, were the zenith of French maritime exploration, colonial ambition and scientific endeavour... The natural history specimens and collections from the Dumont d'Urville voyages were destined for the largest cabinet of curiosities in Europe - the Muséum National d'Histoire Naturelle in Paris. Here, the business of exploration had long been systematised and institutionalised. The specimens were elaborately worked up by professional scientific illustrators... As France's last great scientific voyage of discovery by sail, Dumont d'Urville's voyages mark the end of an era of heroic exploration.... Over the course of his three long voyages, Dumont d'Urville visited more of the Pacific and Oceania than Cook or Bougainville or any other of his three predecessors' (Hunt, Terry & Thomas, Lure of the Southern Seas, the voyages of Dumont d'Urville 1826-1840 pp. 5 & 13, 61)./The plates, by the most famous artists of the period such as Prêtre, Prevost and Oudart, are of an unsurpassed beauty, colour-printed and superbly handfinished, a most laborious and costly process. The largest section is the one on shells containing 95 plates. The section on mammals contains 28 (5 plain) plates, birds 31 plates, fishes 12 plates and zoophytes 26 plates./"France continued to provide facilities at sea for nature study. Between 1826 and 1829 Quoy and Gaimard were again taken around the globe, this time in the 'Astrolabe', stopping frequently to observe and collect animals. The result of their molluscan studies on this voyage were published in a magnificent report containing many accurate observations and descriptions on many new species. The illustrations of living molluscs are so beautiful and so true to life that they are frequently reproduced in modern works" (Dance. History of Shell Collecting p. 134). The ornithological part chiefly consists of descriptions of new species of birds from New Guinea, New Zealand, Celebes, Australia and other points reached on the voyage. Title with small paper repair at right upper corner. A small number of plates with varying foxing as is common with this work.//B.M. (Nat. Hist.)II, 603; Nissen ZBI, 1199.

Its author having long been engaged in the supervision of the collection of the income or property tax repealed in 1815, it embodies much practical as well as theoretical information. We dissent from the views taken by Mr. Sayer of Taxes on Income: but we are not on that account the less ready to admit the ability and judgement he has displayed in recommending their adoption" (359).
