        MEMOIRS AND LETTERS OF CAPT. SIR WILLIAM HOSTE

      London: Richard Bentley, 1833. Complete in two volumes; frontispiece plate to vol. I.; half-titles and title-pages to both volumes; the text is divided into different books and for each book there is a separate title page; pp. vol. I: [16 -publisher's adverts], [8], 351; vol. II: [2- publisher's adverts], [6], 332, [4 - publisher's adverts]. Later binding of cloth-backed boards, (though the boards are probably the publisher's original boards - as the text block has neither been resown or trimmed, but with a later paper covering) Bindings utilitarian and quite worn. The contents are very good, with large margins and the full complement of adverts, good and clean, though some pages are loose and the text blocks have detached from the casings. The pages are generally very clean and the portrait frontispiece is bright. A scarce work. (Ideally this set should be rebound in polished half-calf bindings. We would be very pleased to arrange this on your behalf should you wish - we use some of the best restoration binders and estimate that this work would cost around £300. - please contact us for further details). First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Dust Jacket. 8vo (15 x 23cm).

        The Geology of the South-East of England

      London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green & Longman. 1833. First edition, xix, [1 blank], 415, [1]pp., frontispiece, hand-coloured folding map, and 5 lithographed plates (1 folding), illustrations in text, plates somewhat spotted, old library stamp to title & several leaves of text, cont. half calf, marbled boards, neatly rebacked with morocco label. Gideon Mantell (1790-1852) was an English physician and geologist best known for pioneering the scientific study of dinosaurs. After an apprenticeship to a local surgeon in Sussex, Mantell became a member of the Royal College of Surgeons in 1811. He developed an interest in fossils, and in 1822 his discovery of fossil teeth which he later identified as belonging to an iguana-like creature he named Iguanadon spurred research into ancient fossils. This volume contains the results of Mantell's research into the geology and fossil remains of south-eastern England, especially Sussex and Kent. Mantell describes each rock stratum of the region in detail, and includes within each section descriptions of fossil remains found in the formation, arranged by species. Copiously illustrated, this volume remains one of Mantell's best known works and contains fascinating detail concerning the development of geology and palaeontology.

        The geology of the south-east of England. Presentation copy

      London: Longman [etc.], 1833. Mantell, Gideon (1790-1852). The geology of the south-east of England. [iii]-xix, 415pp., lacking half-title. Lithographed frontispiece and 5 plates (1 folding), folding colored map, text illustrations. London: Longman, Rees, Orne, Brown, Green & Longman, 1833. 213 x 132 mm. 19th century half calf, marbled boards, all edges gilt, rebacked preserving original spine, light edgewear. Plates somewhat foxed, map backed with linen, otherwise very good. Presentation copy, with Mantell's autograph inscription to Capt. [Proby Thomas] Cautley (1802-71) bound in before the frontispiece: "To Capt. Cautley as a mark of the high respect of the author for his important researches in Paleontology, & in gratitude for Captain Cautley's valuable addition to the Author's Museum. Brighton Feby. 14, 1837."First Edition. Announcing the discovery of Hylaeosaurus, the third dinosaur specimen to be discovered, and the first known specimen of the Ankylosauria. Mantell, a British obstetrician and enthusiastic amateur paleontologist, had discovered the first true dinosaur, the Iguanadon, in 1822 in the British county of Sussex. "In 1832 Mantell discovered the first strongly armored group of dinosaurs. He described this fossil, which he named Hylaeosaurus, in The Geology of the South-east of England. . . . Meanwhile, Buckland in 1824 had described the remains of the large carnivorous dinosaur Megalosaurus from the Jurassic near Oxford. Thus the first three dinosaurs to be known, the Iguanadon, the Megalosaurus, and the Hyaelosaurus, each belonged to a quite distinct group, later called Ornithopoda, Theropoda, and Ankylosauria, respectively" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography).Mantell presented this copy of his Geology of the South-east of England to Proby Thomas Cautley, a British engineer and paleontologist who spent most of his career in India. Cautley was the first to find fossils in the Siwalik range of the Himalayas and, together with Hugh Falconer, he amassed and classified an enormous collection of sub-Himalayan fossils that he later presented to the British Museum. Cautley had evidently contributed a fossil specimen to Mantell's own museum, which he had established in his house in Brighton (the museum took over Mantell's entire residence, and his wife and children were forced to seek housing elsewhere!).

William Pascoe Crook, the missionary landed in the South Seas from the Duff, sealing in the South Seas and off the coast of New Holland, a visit to King George's Sound, and an account of Simeon Lord of Sydney and his sealing and sandalwood adventures.Following his first voyage (in the Betsey, 1792) on a South Seas sealing expedition Captain Fanning was involved in some seventy expeditions to the South Seas and China, either as commander or as directive agent. As well as Australia, he visited South Georgia, and the islands of Fiji, Tonga, and the Marquesas. He discovered many islands, including one now named after him 1200 miles south of Honolulu. He includes here an account of the first American exploring expedition to the southern hemisphere which sailed in 1829 under Benjamin Pendleton, largely as a result of his petition to Congress and his own personal efforts.Day, 32; Hill, 581; O'Reilly-Reitman, 693.

Allt som utkom av denna utförligt kommenterade översättning av ett urval av Georg Adlersparres "Handlingar rörande Sveriges äldre, nyare och nyaste historia, samt historiska personer", 1830-33. Den innehåller mycket rörande revolutionen 1809 och även Adlersparres egen berättelse om revolutionens utbrott i Värmland. Den tyske översättaren Schubert talar i sitt förord om de "skriande orättfärdigheter" som kuppmakarna begått mot Gustav IV Adolf. Handlingarna publiceras här på tyska snarast för att illustrera Adlersparres och hans kompanjoners uselhet, då de själva "med ett häpnadsväckande övermod offentliggjort sina förbrytliga dåd" och till och med räknat sina brott som förtjänster. "Nimmermehr!" utropar Schubert och hoppas att genom att kasta ljus över illdåden förhindra sådana skändligheter i framtiden

        Ruined palace at Megera where King Otto I of Greece with his brother Crown prince Maximillian stayed on their journey to Athens .... 10-22 May 1833 " Palast Ruine zu Megera, in welcher König Otto I von Griechenland mit seinen Bruder dem Kronprinzen Max von Bayern auf der Reise nach Athen in Mitte seiner Getreuen übernachtete, am 10/22 May 1833

      Philhellenic: Munich Gustav Kraus. c1835. Black & white lithograph of King Otto at Megera in 1833, by Gustav Kraus. Formerly laid down to thicker paper, remains on verso, some creasing and spotting to margins Gustav Kraus 1804-1852. From the very beginning, lithography was Gustav Kraus' preferred artistic medium. This method (printing by using a limestone) had been developed by Alois Senefelder (1771-1834) in 1796/1798. Lithography was an obvious choice for several reasons: it was well established in Munich, the printing stone could be produced easily, and it was possible to fabricate many copies (lithographic limestone, if handled correctly, could be used indefinately). When Kraus' first lithographs were published in 1825, he had already completely mastered the technique. With two exceptions in 1848, he always used  modern chalk lithography, which allowed very smooth, fluid transitions and tonal values. n 1836, Kraus bought an estate in Munich's Maxvorstadt (Löwenstraße 19, today Schellingstraße 26). He also used the location as an artist's studio and a small publishing house. He published most of his works by himself. In the same year, he also attained the citizenship of Munich Numerous travels through Bavaria and beyond provided material for large landscape illustrations, and illustrations of military manoeuvres and other incidents. In addition Gustav Kraus also worked on drawings and paintings of other artists: he either produced lithographs as contract work, or he had not been present personally, as in the case of many illustrations pertaining to King Otto's (1815-1867; king from 1832-1862) military procession into Greece. The former are characterised by a very exact reproduction of the antetypes, while the latter display a masterful handling of composition and prop buildings. Philhellenic King Otto Megera

        Els-Kwau-Ta-Waw: The Open Door

      Philadelphia: E.C Biddle, 1833. unbound. very good. Lehman and Duval. Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 19.5" x 14". Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project, sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist. King painted the prominent Indians while they visited Washington D.C. as treaty delegates. Most of the original oil paintings were destroyed by fire in the Smithsonian Museum in 1865. These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century. Els-Kwau-Ta-Waw, also known as Tenskwatawa, was the Shawnee Chief Tecumseh's brother. A self-proclaimed prophet, Tenskwatawa preached unification among his people. He was eventually exiled by his brother for trying to fight the Americans against Tecumseh's will. Overall toning and offsetting. Chips to lower and upper right corners. One piece in our collection of Native American prints.

        TEXAS. OBSERVATIONS, HISTORICAL, GEOGRAPHICAL AND DESCRIPTIVE, IN A SERIES OF LETTERS, WRITTEN DURING A VISIT TO AUSTIN'S COLONY, WITH A VIEW TO A PERMANENT SETTLEMENT IN THAT COUNTRY, IN THE AUTUMN OF 1831

      Baltimore: Armstrong & Plaskitt, 1833.. 167pp. plus folding frontispiece map. 12mo. Original purple-brown cloth, title stamped in gilt on front board, expertly rebacked to style. Very good. In a blue half morocco box. Provenance: Louisa Austin (inscribed on front free endpaper "Louisa / from her father / A. Austin). This copy bears an intriguing inscription on the front fly leaf, inscribed: "Louisa / from her father / A. Austin." Louisa Austin (1816-67) was the daughter of Aaron Austin (1786-1849) and his wife, Mary Cooley (d. 1862). Aaron Austin was born in Wallingford, Connecticut, and raised his family in eastern New York, in the town of Durham. He was descended of the bloodline of John Austin of New Haven, Connecticut. Stephen F. Austin, the "empresario" of Texas, and Mary Austin Holley, the author of this book, were cousins, and the book is in fact dedicated to Stephen F. Austin. The two of them come from the bloodline of Richard Austin of Charlestown, Massachusetts, and do not share a familial relationship with Aaron Austin and his family. Mary Austin Holley, however, was born in New Haven, and Stephen F. Austin was educated in Colchester, Connecticut, and his father, Moses Austin, was born in Durham, Connecticut, so it seems natural to believe that these two families, though not related by blood but linked by surname and living in rather close proximity to each other in small communities, would have known each other and been on friendly terms. The rare first edition of the first book in English devoted entirely to Texas. The fine "Map of the State of Coahuila and Texas" is by W. Hooker and displays the region from just east of New Orleans to a degree west of Santa Fe, and north from the mouth of the Rio Grande to just above the 38th parallel. Copies with the map are rare indeed. Mrs. Holley was the cousin of Stephen F. Austin, to whom the book is dedicated, and Jenkins states that it was written with Stephen's assistance. Mrs. Holley travelled from the mouth of the Brazos River to Bolivar to aid her brother, Henry, in making his home there. She found Texas "very like a dream or youthful vision realized." Her work on this book was followed closely and approved by her brother and cousin. The book is, in the words of Thomas W. Streeter, "one of the Texas classics" and was one of his favorite books on life and travel in Texas. Streeter and Jenkins note various states of the map and the text. Streeter gives a detailed description of the map in entry 1136 of his Texas bibliography, and in this copy the copyright notice is printed on the verso of the titlepage. STREETER TEXAS 1135.

        The Shelley Papers

      Memoir of Percy Bysshe Shelley By T. Medwin, Esq. And Original poems and papers By Percy Bysshe Shelley. Now first collected. London: Whittaker, Treacher, & Co., 1833. Pott 16mo in half-sheets; half-title not called for; 3pp. integral advertisements at end, verso of last leaf blank; pp.viii+180+[iii]+[i]; quarter puce ripple-grain cloth, paper spine-label, drab boards; fore-edges rough trimmed, others fully trimmed. Slight fading to cloth of spine, and label dusty; some very light foxing or marking passim; a nice copy nonetheless of a delicate book, that is in our experience uncommon. Granniss 81: “Shelley’s poems and papers are reprinted from ‘The Atheaeum’ for 1832 and 1833, with the exception of ‘To the Queen of My Heart’, the authenticity of which is doubtful. It first appeared in ‘The Keepsake’. The lines on Shelley, which follow the Advertisement, are by Thomas Lovell Beddoes and were first printed in ‘The Athenaeum’.” Part of the Memoir was written by T.F. Kelsall. One of at least three known bindings, all with the same spine label. Wise, Ashley Library, V., p.91 records a copy in ‘red-brown boards’, whilst probably later copies are known in full blue cloth. The label records the publication price as 3s. 6d. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.
