        [SEVENTEEN MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENTS RELATING TO THE CHOLERA EPIDEMIC IN HAVANA IN 1833]

      Havana. 1833.. 32pp. In Spanish. Small quarto, on folded folio sheets; integral blanks. A few leaves lightly but evenly toned. Minor scattered foxing, some occasional offsetting or bleed-through. Very good. Seventeen reports from different neighborhoods of Havana containing information on deaths and new illnesses accredited to the cholera outbreak. Cholera arrived in the Caribbean for the first time in late February 1833. The first reported death was of a Catalan man named Jose Soler, a resident of the port neighborhood of Lazaro in Havana. This epidemic killed an estimated 30,000 people on the island, spreading like wildfire through barracks full of slaves and on into the countryside. The present group of documents date from March 10th, 11th and 12th of 1833, the very early stages of the epidemic. The documents are written and signed by members of the local authorities in Havana. All but one indicate the Governor and Captain General of Cuba as the addressee, a position which was held at that time by Mariano Ricafort Palacin y Abarca (1776-1846). The documents contain detailed information that includes names of the deceased, their age, in some cases their address as well as their social status. Slaves, prisoners, soldiers and regular residents are spoken of. Some documents contain curious information, for example indicating that the bodies have been buried right away as per orders. In another instance there is a description of a treatment given to persons that have fallen ill. A few examples are as follows: Havana, March 11, 1833. Barrio de San Felipe. Signed by Jose de Sola. This document informs that on March 10 two people died of the disease in the neighborhood of San Felipe, one Don Juan Pellon as well as a black slave Joaquin de Casares. Both were attended by a doctor. Havana, March 10, 1833. Castillo de la Junta. Signed by Don Juan Campos. The document reports that a prisoner named Carlos Morel, a black slave of Lucumi descent, passed away. It also notes that second lieutenant Fernando de las Penas and another prisoner, Dionisio Espinosa, have fallen sick with the same symptoms and are being treated by doctors. Havana, March 11, 1833. Barrio de San Francisco. Signed by Antonio de Palma. On March 11, 1833, Antonio de Palma wrote a report of three incidents that occurred on March 10, 1833 at the Marine base in Havana. At around 8:45 p.m. Juan Moreno, born in the Canary Islands, came down with a violent virus. This virus was so strong that he was not able to walk on his own. He was immediately attended to and given a cup of chamomile tea with malambo and 30 drops of elipsis. This treatment was bought at Dr. Jose Bernandino de Castro's pharmacy located on Aguila Street in the Jesus Maria neighborhood. Moreno was then covered with a blanket and jacket, which he had on hand. According to a First Reserve Corporal, the neighborhood commissary was notified so that Moreno would be transported to the San Juan Hospital The same night and at the Marine base, Dr. Francisco Bustamante's wife was affected with the same virus around 9 p.m. She was given the same treatment and recovered. Antonio de Palma's slave, Raphael was also afflicted with the virus and given the same treatment and is also in good condition. A fascinating group of primary materials on the first cholera outbreak in the Caribbean.

        Voyages round the World

      New York,: Collins & Hannay, 1833.. Octavo, with a frontispiece and four lithographic plates (two of which, showing sealers, are folding); the endpapers foxed and some occasional spotting in the text; original brown papered boards, slightly stained and rubbed, the back repaired at an early date and the original green cloth spine laid down; overall a decent copy, uncut and with large margins. First edition. London and Paris editions appeared in 1834, and a second American edition of 1838 was followed by three reprints; all are now scarce.Fanning's interesting record of twenty-five years of Pacific voyages is of considerable Australian interest. Among various events worth noting are the rescue of the Rev. 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 one thousand two hundred 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.

        Voyages Round the World; with selected sketches of voyages to the South Seas, North and South Pacific Oceans, China, etc....between 1792 and 1832

      New York: 1833. Octavo. 499pp. 5 plates (2 folding). Original green cloth- backed brown/grey paper covered-boards, printed paper label to spine (label chipped, neat repairs to spine), green cloth chemise, green cloth slipcase, brown morocco lettering-piece. First edition of a classic narrative of voyages to the Pacific. Fanning's adventurous life at sea began at a young age. A native of Connecticut, he set sail in 1792 for the South Seas in search of seal skins. During the following quarter century he made voyages around the world and to the Pacific, visiting Australia, south Georgia, Fiji, Tonga, and the Marquesas. Included in his work is a narrative of the first American naval exploring expedition to the southern hemisphere in 1829-30 by Benjamin Pendleton. "Fanning, who went to sea as a 14-year-old cabin boy in 1783, first sailed to the South Seas on a voyage for seal skins on the Betsey in May 1797. During the next 25 years he either captained or directed over 70 voyages to the Pacific and around the globe, personally visiting China, Australia, Fiji, and the Marquesas. In 1798 he discovered both Fanning and Palmyra Islands...the latter is officially a part of the city and county of Honolulu and is privately owned by a Honolulu family. In 1829 Fanning was instrumental in sending out an exploring expedition under the command of Captain Benjamin Pendleton and Nataniel Brown Palmer... It was Fanning's petition to Congress and largely his own personal efforts that led to the ... fitting out of the United States Exploring Expedition [i.e Wilkes Expedition]" (Forbes). The Bishop Museum in Honolulu holds Princess Kaiulani's copy of Fanning's Voyages. American Imprints 18752; Ferguson 1643; Hill (2004) 581; Howes F27, "aa."; Sabin 23780; Forbes 839.

        Illuminated ornaments, selected from manuscripts and early printed books, from the sixth to the seventeenth century drawn and engraved by Henry Shaw ... with descriptions by Sir Frederic Madden

      London: Charles Whittingham for William Pickering, 1833. Imperial quarto. (14 1/4 x 10 1/4 inches). Hand-coloured lithographed additional title (heightened with gilt), 59 very fine hand-coloured etched or lithographed plates, heightened with gilt where required (the first four plates with a burnished background of gold leaf). Contemporary purple morocco by J. Wright of London, covers with elaborate border composed of five gilt fillets enclosing an elaborate inner dentelle border composed from many small tools, the spine in six compartments with semi-raised bands, lettered in the second compartment, the others with repeat scrolling arabesque decoration, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. First edition, large paper, deluxe issue, of this beautiful work on medieval illuminated work, with the plates "richly illuminated in gold" (Lowndes). This important and rare work proved to be influential in shaping Victorian collectors appreciation of early illuminated manuscripts. According to the prospectus, the work was published in twelve parts each containing five plates beginning in June 1830 and was issued "at 3s 6d plain, 7s 6d coloured, and a very limited number ... printed in Imperial Quarto, and the ornaments more highly finished in opaque colors heightened with gold, at 15s each part." The normal coloured copies measure approximately 11 x 8 ¼ inches, with the plates less skillfully hand-coloured and the gilded areas replaced by yellow. In the present large-paper, deluxe issue the plates are as beautiful as the originals and when allied with Sir Fred. Madden's commentary printed by Charles Whittingham, and the excellent binding by a talented London binder, the final result is a masterpiece of book-production from the Gothic revival period. "With their careful selection of pigments and their faithful colouring, Shaw's reproductions attain almost to the brilliancy of an original manuscript Abbey, Life, 234; Beckwith, Victorian Bibliomania, 14.; Ing, Charles Whittingham Printer, 9; Keynes p. 89; Lowndes III, p.2371; McLean, Victorian Book Design, p.65-66; Warren p. 155; Hardie, p. 259; Friedman, Color Printing in England 39.

        Illustrations of the Botany and other branches of the Natural History of the Himalayan Mountains, and of the Flora of Cashmere

      London: printed by J.L. Cox & Sons for Wm. H. Allen & Co., [1833-]1839[- 1840]. 2 volumes in 1, small thick folio. (14 1/8 x 10 3/8 inches). Half- titles. Hand-coloured aquatint frontispiece view of the Himalayas by J. Clark after Lt.Col. R. Smith, 1 hand-coloured plate of a geological section of the Himalayas, 3 uncoloured lithographic plates of fossils, hand-coloured lithographed plan of the botanic garden at Saharanpore and 96 hand-coloured natural-history plates, drawn on stone by Maxim Gauci and others, coloured by John Clark[e] or Mr.Barclay, after Vishupersaud, Miss Drake, W. Saunders, Luchmun Sing, J.T. Hart and others, printed by Graf & Soret (comprising: 2 plates of mammals, 2 plates of birds, 2 plates of insects, and 90 botanical plates). Expertly bound to style in half dark green morocco over contemporary marbled paper covered boards, marbled endpapers, marbled edges. First edition of this "pioneering ecological study" (Rix) on the trees, shrubs and flowers of the Himalayan region of the Indian sub-continent, illustrated with delightful images after Vishnuperand: the greatest Indian botanical artist of his time. Born in Cawnpore the son of an officer in the service of the East India Company, John Forbes Royle joined the medical staff of the Bengal Army in Calcutta in 1819 or 1820. Three years later, in 1823, he was able to combine his medical and military duties with his love of botany when he was appointed superintendant of the botanical garden at Saharunpore. He carried out a thorough investigation of the properties of traditional plant-based Indian drugs, buying them in the bazaars, and in the present work (vol.I, pp.239- 240) he also recommends the establishment of cinchona (the basis for quinine) in India. He was one of the first to botanise in the Himalayas, and his position at Saharunpore allowed him to commission Vishnupersaud and others to produce an important and valuable collection of beautiful and highly accurate drawings of the specimens he found during his plant- hunting expeditions. The resulting collection also contained the first visual record of many species. In 1831, Forbes returned to England with his herbarium and collection of drawings, and the publication of the present work began with the publication of the first (of 11) parts in September 1833. The work progressed steadily until May 1836 (when the 9th part was published), but Forbes appointment as professor of materia medica at King's College, London, in 1837 seems to have delayed the appearance of the tenth part until February 1839, and the final eleventh part in March or April 1840. The majority of the plates are after Vishnupersaud (or Vishnu Prasad), "the most talented of the native Indian [botanical] artists" (Blunt). He was employed by many of the most important plant collectors and botanists of the time, including Nathaniel Wallich and Robert Wight, and unfortunately, he remains one of only a handful of early 19th-century Indian botanical artists whose names are known - this in itself is an indication of the high esteem in which his work was held by western botanists at the time. An examination of the large collection of his original drawings still held by the India Office Library and the Kew Herbarium confirms his reputation amongst his contemporaries. The transfer of the drawings onto stone was carried out by the greatest of the early lithographers of botanical subjects: the Maltese born Maxim Gauci, and, unusually, Forbes also gives the names of the colourists: Mr. Clarke (probably John Clark who coloured the plates in Wallich's Plantae Asiaticae) and Mr. Barclay BM(NH) IV,p.1758; Bradley Bibliography I,p.472; Great Flower Books (1990) p.134; Nissen BBI 1690, Massachusetts Horticultural Society Library p.272; M.Rix.

        Illustrations of the Botany and other Branches of the Natural History of the Himalayan Mountains, and the Flora of Cashmere, Plates volume

      London: printed by J.L. Cox and Sons for Wm. H. Allen, (1833)-1839. First edition.. Spine leather very lightly sunned, small faint stain (1/4 inch in height) to upper blank margins of final 9 plates; a bright, clean copy in fine condition in a very attractive binding.. Pp. (8), 1 hand-colored aquatint frontispiece of the Himalayas by J. Clark after R. Smith, 1 hand-colored lithographic garden plan of Saharanpur, 1 hand-colored plate of geological section of the Himalayas, 3 uncolored lithographic plates of fossils, and 96 hand-colored lithographic natural history plates, most drawn on stone by Maxim Gauci and printed by Graf and Soret. The fine color plates depict flowering plants, mammals and birds. Contemporary green straight-grained morocco, covers paneled in gilt and blind, spine in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second and fourth compartments, the others with repeat decoration in gilt, gilt turn-ins, marbled endpapers, marbled page edges, folio (375 x 270 mm). Royle arrived in Calcutta in 1819 and was assigned to the medical staff of the Bengal army. He was first stationed at Dumdum (near Calcutta), but was subsequently sent to various parts of Bengal and the North-West Provinces. In 1823 Royle was chosen first superintendent of the Saharanpur Botanic Garden - a plan of which is included in the present work. Because Royle was occupied with this administrative post and could not travel, he employed collectors who brought together a valuable collection of economic plants. He returned to England in 1831 with his botanical collections and paintings - the present work is the result of his researches. The fine paintings on which the hand-colored plates are based are in the Mughal style, a classical Indian tradition. The Mughal style was particularly suited to scientific illustration. The artist who made the paintings for Royle is known as Vishnupersaud (or Vishnu Prasad) who Blunt considered the "most talented of the native Indian artists." The fine hand-colored lithographs of plants depicted in this volume are truly extraordinary. See also Great Flower Books (1990) p.134 and Nissen BBI 1690.

Sadleir notes that with Sense and Sensibility being dated 1833, this is probably the earliest state, though he concedes that this is ‘of ambiguous significance’; Gilson (rejecting both theories posited by Sadleir) calls for the terminal imprints in this set to be "that of A. Spottiswoode only in all volumes this shows the sheets to be ?revised reprintings of the Standard Novels issues (the first printings of D1-D3 having been by A. and R. Spottiswoode)", but the terminal imprint in the majority of this set is A. and R. Spottiswoode, (except Pride and Prejudice and Northanger Abbey), therefore probably showing them to be an earlier issue. Gilson describes this edition as being "very rare in any state". The first collected edition of Jane Austen in a handsome contemporary binding. Sadleir 3735a; Gilson D6. First Thus. Full Calf. Good+. 12mo.

      Bruxelles, Etablissement encyclographique 1833 Un volume in 8 reliure moderne demi-chagrin noir d'ivoire, dos à cinq nerfs, titre gravé, XV-500 pages. Plats de couverture conservés. Magnifique exemplaire à grandes marges non rognées. Reliure absolument parfaite, fleurs de coins - perfect copy like new, no foxing ---- "THE REFORMER AND PIONEER PSYCHIATRIST OF BELGIUM". (Zilboord p. 468) ---- "Nommé médecin-chef des établissements d'aliénés de Gand en 1828, Joseph GUISLAIN fait à la fois oeuvre de théoricien et de réformateur. Théoricien, il demeure très proche d'Esquirol et ne sera pazs sans influence sur Griesinger et sur Morel. L'essentiel de ses idées est contenu dans le Traité des phrénopathies (1833), terme qu'il substitue à celui trop vague de folie. Il voit dans la douleur morale ou phrénalgie la cause essentielle de toute maladie mentale, les différents symptômes étant liés à l'organisation physique et intellectuelle préalable du malade et propose une nosologie en six classes où l'on voit pour la première fois apparaître une tentative d'isolement des psychoses délirantes primitives, concept qui devait connaître un succès croissant dans la seconde moitié du siècle. Réformateur des structures hospitalières, d'un naturel bon et expansif selon Morel qui l'a connu en 1845, Joseph GUISLAIN a lutté toute sa vie pour l'amélioration du sort des aliénés, proposant un plan d'organisation des asiles complétés par de petites colonies familiales et par des exploitations agricoles destinées à faciliter la rééducation morale et physique progressive des malades".

VI Delle Sostituzioni in generale, Indice dei capotoli contenuti in questo secondo tomo, Orazione recitata..., Riflessioni ?., . Seconda edizione di quest'opera importantissima in quanto latrice di principi architettonici innovativi sviluppati dal "Socrate architetto" padre Lodoli e portati alla pubblica conoscenza dai suoi discepoli; analogamente quanto fecero Platone e Senofonte con il loro maestro., così fece Algarotti nelle sue opere, su richiesta di Andrea Memmo, ma l'esposizione fu parziale e senza convinzione, non volendo lui mettersi in cattiva luce davanti al pubblico contemporaneo esponendo idee così rivoluzionarie. Andrea Memmo non soddisfatto dell'opera del suo amico si accinse egli stesso a dare un'esposizione più completa e precisa dei pensieri di padre Lodoli. Egli pubblicò, però, solo la prima parte (In Roma : nella stamperia Pagliarini, 1786) per dare il tempo al pubblico di digerire queste nuove nozioni. "Il perché a buon diritto vuolsi riconoscere l'eccellentissimo cav. Memmo per autore anche del primo libro da lui pubblicato in Roma, quando n'era ambasciatore presso la santa Sede; e da lui medesimo poscia arricchito di postille; né vuolsi che la sua stessa ammirabile modestia nuocia punto alla gloria di un merito cotanto insigne. Per questo avvertimento importantissimo, che noi facciamo ai lettori, si è cangiato il frontispizio delle due prime distribuzioni?" dall'"avvertimento" del TOMO 2. Alla fine del secondo tomo sono stati aggiunti due discorsi letti all'Accedemia di Belle Arti a Venezia nel 1787, il primo di Pietro Zaguri di critica , il secondo di Andrea Memmo in difesa dell'opera appena pubblicata. Carlo Lodoli (1690 ? 27 ottobre 1761) è stato un religioso e architetto italiano, noto anche per la sua attività di docente. La sua opera anticipò il concetto moderno di funzionalismo. È a volte chiamato il "Socrate" dell'architettura poiché tutti i suoi scritti sono andati perduti e le sue teorie sono note solo attraverso quanto riportato dai suoi allievi e da altri autori. Era padre francescano del convento di San Francesco della Vigna di Venezia. Girolamo Zanetti afferma che Lodoli impiegò venti anni a terminare la stesura del suo trattato sull'architettura, ma si rifiutò di pubblicarlo. Francesco Algarotti cercò da parte sua di rendere noto il pensiero di Lodoli nella propria opera Saggio sopra l'architettura (1757), anche se in una forma un po' attenuata, enfatizzando l'imitazione piuttosto che il razionalismo anti-barocco di Lodoli. Fu Andrea Memmo che tentò di rendere giustizia alle teorie di Lodoli, nella sua opera Elementi d'architettura lodoliana (1786); dell'anno successivo è la prima edizione dell'unico libro che porti il nome di Lodoli, Apologhi immaginati (1787): una raccolta di detti e di racconti, spesso paradossali, narrati ai suoi amici e ai suoi allievi. Tra il 1739 e il 1751 Lodoli ebbe l'incarico di Padre Generale Commissario di Terra Santa a Venezia. Qui si dedicò al restauro dell'ospizio per i pellegrini annesso al monastero (1739?43). Questo fu il suo unico lavoro pratico. Memmo Andrea (1729-1793): Patrizio veneziano. Fu Bailo a Costantinopoli, Senatore e Procuratore di San Marco. Fu discepolo del padre C.Lodoli, del quale divulgo le idee sull'architettura.

[PLATES Volume, William Annan, nd.] 4to, three quarter calf over marbled boards, loss of leather from top and bottom inch and half of spine, joints started and weak, boards rubbed, corners bumped/rubbed, contains double page vignette, 14 double page plates detailing the construction of fortifications and 3 double page plates and 2 double page tables dealing with artillery, some foxing to plates, plates measure approx 510mm by 325mm , Capt. Hector Straith (later Major) was an instructor in artillery and fortification at the East India Company's military seminary and it was in this capacity that he wrote this work. At the time much of the most current ideas about fortification had been developed by a number of French military engineers and Straith's aim was to provide as much of this information as possible in a single work in English for the benefit of his students. Straith believed that both theoretical understanding and practical knowledge were vital if his students were to be able to oversee the construction of fortifications and their defence in the field. To this end he admits to offering somewhat simplified instructions on defilement, instructions he believed could be assimilated by his students in the time alloted to their teaching. , 8vo 8" - 9" tall, xxvii [ii] 409 [1] pp .

      London: printed by J.L. Cox & Sons for Wm. H. Allen & Co., [1833-]1839[- 1840]. 2 volumes in 1, small thick folio. (14 1/8 x 10 3/8 inches). Half- titles. Hand-coloured aquatint frontispiece view of the Himalayas by J. Clark after Lt.Col. R. Smith, 1 hand-coloured plate of a geological section of the Himalayas, 3 uncoloured lithographic plates of fossils, hand-coloured lithographed plan of the botanic garden at Saharanpore and 96 hand-coloured natural-history plates, drawn on stone by Maxim Gauci and others, coloured by John Clark[e] or Mr.Barclay, after Vishupersaud, Miss Drake, W. Saunders, Luchmun Sing, J.T. Hart and others, printed by Graf & Soret (comprising: 2 plates of mammals, 2 plates of birds, 2 plates of insects, and 90 botanical plates). Expertly bound to style in half dark green morocco over contemporary marbled paper covered boards, marbled endpapers, marbled edges. First edition of this "pioneering ecological study" (Rix) on the trees, shrubs and flowers of the Himalayan region of the Indian sub-continent, illustrated with delightful images after Vishnuperand: the greatest Indian botanical artist of his time. Born in Cawnpore the son of an officer in the service of the East India Company, John Forbes Royle joined the medical staff of the Bengal Army in Calcutta in 1819 or 1820. Three years later, in 1823, he was able to combine his medical and military duties with his love of botany when he was appointed superintendant of the botanical garden at Saharunpore. He carried out a thorough investigation of the properties of traditional plant-based Indian drugs, buying them in the bazaars, and in the present work (vol.I, pp.239- 240) he also recommends the establishment of cinchona (the basis for quinine) in India. He was one of the first to botanise in the Himalayas, and his position at Saharunpore allowed him to commission Vishnupersaud and others to produce an important and valuable collection of beautiful and highly accurate drawings of the specimens he found during his plant- hunting expeditions. The resulting collection also contained the first visual record of many species. In 1831, Forbes returned to England with his herbarium and collection of drawings, and the publication of the present work began with the publication of the first (of 11) parts in September 1833. The work progressed steadily until May 1836 (when the 9th part was published), but Forbes appointment as professor of materia medica at King's College, London, in 1837 seems to have delayed the appearance of the tenth part until February 1839, and the final eleventh part in March or April 1840. The majority of the plates are after Vishnupersaud (or Vishnu Prasad), "the most talented of the native Indian [botanical] artists" (Blunt). He was employed by many of the most important plant collectors and botanists of the time, including Nathaniel Wallich and Robert Wight, and unfortunately, he remains one of only a handful of early 19th-century Indian botanical artists whose names are known - this in itself is an indication of the high esteem in which his work was held by western botanists at the time. An examination of the large collection of his original drawings still held by the India Office Library and the Kew Herbarium confirms his reputation amongst his contemporaries. The transfer of the drawings onto stone was carried out by the greatest of the early lithographers of botanical subjects: the Maltese born Maxim Gauci, and, unusually, Forbes also gives the names of the colourists: Mr. Clarke (probably John Clark who coloured the plates in Wallich's Plantae Asiaticae) and Mr. Barclay BM(NH) IV,p.1758; Bradley Bibliography I,p.472; Great Flower Books (1990) p.134; Nissen BBI 1690, Massachsetts Horticultural Society Library p.272; M.Rix.

Original green cloth- backed brown/grey paper covered-boards, printed paper label to spine (label chipped, neat repairs to spine), green cloth chemise, green cloth slipcase, brown morocco lettering-piece. First edition of a classic narrative of voyages to the Pacific. Fanning's adventurous life at sea began at a young age. A native of Connecticut, he set sail in 1792 for the South Seas in search of seal skins. During the following quarter century he made voyages around the world and to the Pacific, visiting Australia, south Georgia, Fiji, Tonga, and the Marquesas. Included in his work is a narrative of the first American naval exploring expedition to the southern hemisphere in 1829-30 by Benjamin Pendleton. "Fanning, who went to sea as a 14-year-old cabin boy in 1783, first sailed to the South Seas on a voyage for seal skins on the Betsey in May 1797. During the next 25 years he either captained or directed over 70 voyages to the Pacific and around the globe, personally visiting China, Australia, Fiji, and the Marquesas. In 1798 he discovered both Fanning and Palmyra Islands...the latter is officially a part of the city and county of Honolulu and is privately owned by a Honolulu family. In 1829 Fanning was instrumental in sending out an exploring expedition under the command of Captain Benjamin Pendleton and Nataniel Brown Palmer... It was Fanning's petition to Congress and largely his own personal efforts that led to the ... fitting out of the United States Exploring Expedition [i.e Wilkes Expedition]" (Forbes). The Bishop Museum in Honolulu holds Princess Kaiulani's copy of Fanning's Voyages. American Imprints 18752; Ferguson 1643; Hill (2004) 581; Howes F27, "aa."; Sabin 23780; Forbes 839.
