        Turkey and its resources: its municipal organization and free trade; the state and prospects of English commerce in the East, the new administration of Greece, its revenue and national possessions.

      London, Saunders and Otley, 1833.. 8vo. First edition. XV, (1), 328 pp. With lithographic map bound as frontispiece.. First edition; flyleaf with authorial presentation inscription to "Mr [...] Regnaudiu". Important overview of Turkish trade, resources, infrastructure and municipal organisation by the diplomat David Urquhart (1805-77). After two and a half years fighting in the Greek war of independence, Urquhart was invited to accompany Sir Stratford Canning to Constantinople in November 1831 as an advisor during negitiations to settle the Greek boundary. In 1832 Urquhart was sent to Albania to cultivate the support of Rechid Pasha, leading advisor to the Turkish sultan. Urquhart became a great supporter of Turkey, spending most of 1834 in the country, and encouraged the British government to ally with Turkey against Egypt. This substantial book was written to inform the British political class of the possible commercial benefits of an Anglo-Turkish alliance. - Some negligible toning to first few leaves, very good, uncut in original grey paper-covered boards, spine with original printed label, light wear to extremities. Scarce, particularly in original condition as here. - Goldsmiths' 27883. OCLC 65261681.

        9 eigenh., von ihm im Zuge der Donauexpedition auf dem Dampfschiff Argo angefertigte Manuskriptkarten. Beiliegend ein sechsseitiges Manuskript "Bemerkungen für den Herrn Hauptmann von Philippovich", das diesem vor Antritt der Reise übergeben wurde.

      [Dampfschiff Argo, 1833/1834].. Verschiedene Formate (die größte Karte mit einer Gesamtlänge von 4,40 m).. Die unter der Leitung Philippovichs im Jahr der Gründung der "Ersten Österreichischen Donau-Dampfschifffahrths-Gesellschaft" und im diplomatischen Auftrag Metternichs veranstaltete Erkundungsfahrt diente vor allem der Erforschung und genauen kartographischen Erfassung des bisher ungenutzten Reise- und Handelsweges zum Schwarzen Meer. Auch galt es, die Türken zu notwendigen Sprengungen der die Schiffahrt behindernden Felsenriffe zu bewegen, sogar ein die letzte Strecke des Weges verkürzender Kanal wurde von Philippovich projektiert. - Die Wiener Zeitung vom 21. April 1834 berichtet über den glücklichen Verlauf der ersten Expeditionsetappe: "Das Dampfboot Argo ward [...] bestimmt, die Reise von Moldava nach Gallacz zu versuchen [...] soeben ist die Nachricht aus Hidoschtzicza eingetroffen, daß das Dampfboot glücklich und ohne den geringsten Anstand alle gefährlichen Stellen des Iglaz, Dachtalia und des sogenannten Eisernen Tores überfahren hat und hiermit der Schiffahrt bis Gallacz keine bekannten Hindernisse ferner im Weg liegen. Aus den erhaltenen Berichten geht hervor, daß die Natur an den bezeichneten Stellen allerdings Schwierigkeiten aufgestellt hat, die aber mit Vorsicht, und nur bey etwas günstigerem Wasserstande [...] zu überwinden sind [...] Sobald wir bey der Rückkunft die Zeitberechnungen der Reise erhalten, werden die Tariffe ausgefertigt, um die Verbindung aller Boote regelmäßig zu organisiren [...]" (Ausschnitt im Original beiliegend). - Das beiliegende Instruktionsmanuskript mit einigen interessanten geographischen Hinweisen, organisatorischen und persönlichen Ratschlägen. - Detaillierte Beschreibung der Karten auf Anfrage.

        Tableau Statistique, Politique et Moral de Système Militaire de la Russie

      Paris: Heideloff et Camp? Paris: Heideloff et Campé,, 1833. Octavo (200 × 124 mm). Contemporary green diced half Russia, matching paper-covered boards, title gilt direct to the spine, mid-blue endpapers, edges sprigged in red. Folding table, tables to text. A little rubbed, through at the corners, front front hinge a little cracked, light browning and a scatter of foxing, but a very good copy. First edition, a presentation copy inscribed by the author, exiled Polish soldier, patriot, and poet Jozef Tanski (1805-88), " à Monsieur le Général Langermann hommage de l'auteur"; autograph letter signed tipped in before the title in which Tanski presents this work on our "shared enemy, which by its subject cannot fail to be of interest to a military man as distinguished as yourself, and one who is moreover a Polish patriot"; Langermann's ownership stamp to the title page. An uncommon - just 13 copies on OCLC - and important book. Tanski was exiled from his homeland following his participation in the November Uprising of 1830-1, he later served in the French Foreign Legion in the Crimea. A detailed study of the organisation, equipment, and morale of the Russian Army, described by William C. Fuller in his study of Strategy and Power in Russia 1600-1914, as "undeservedly obscure [and] extraordinary not least because it is the work of a former Polish officer who knew the Russian military system of the time from the inside". The recipient's story is still more extraordinary, Langermann was in fact a Finn of Swedish extraction, Alexander Maximillian Myrhberg, described in his obituary in the Pall Mall Gazette as "a man who had been for half his life a knight errant of freedom. For 30 years of the last half century Major Myhrberg was to be found fighting wherever the cause of liberty appealed to the sword". In 1823 he had served in Spain in the revolt against Ferdinand VII, but was captured and deported to France. In 1825 he joined the struggle for Greek independence, wounded several times he was described by Thomas Gordon as "the best and bravest of the Philhellenists"; and in the November Uprising of 1830 as Langermann "he commanded a brigade in Rubinski's division of the Polish army, and took part in all desperate and hazardous enterprises of the war. Mieroslawski lauds enthusiastically the behaviour of Langermann's brigade in the fatal battle of Ostrolenka. Myhrberg had two horses killed under him and his sabre shattered by a musket shot" (Pall Mall Gazette). Captured by the Russians and sentenced to exile in Siberia, he escaped en route and was rumoured to have joined the Carlists in Spain. In later life he received a pension from the Swedish government, and served in the administration of the Antilles. He died 1867. Attractively provenanced copy of an uncommon, and extremely interesting book.

        The Kuzzilbash: A Tale of Khorasan

      London: Henry Colburn, 1833 - A triple-decker by the Scottish artist and traveler, best known for his memoirs and views of India and Persia. He spent substantial time among the Turkman tribes, and visited the shrines in Qom and Mahad, entering the former in disguise and the latter openly after having professed the shahada and been proclaimed a Muslim. THE KUZZILBASH is the first of two long romances centered on the figure of Nader Shah (1688?-1747), the great military leader revered during Baillie's time as a second Alexander. The title, taken for the Turkish for "redhead," refers to Persian soldiers generally (who wore red caps), and Turkmen tribesmen in particular. The kuzzilbash of this novel is Ismael, kidnapped and raised by bandits. Forced to flee after a romance with the beautiful Shireen, Ismael joins the forces of Nader Shah and assists in the conquest of Mashhad, the capital of Khorasan. A fine set beautifully bound in three-quarter leather. Victorian library labels from Loxwood House, a manor in West Sussex. Stunning. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Two Treatises of Proclus, the Platonic successor the former consisting of Ten doubts concerning Providence, and a solution of those doubts and the latter containing a development of the nature of evil

      London, Printed for the translator and sold by W. Pickering, 1833 - A very rare work by the great British Neoplatonist and neopagan, one of only 250 copies printed. Practicing what he preached, he was said to have sacrifices goats to the gods and poured libations to Zeus. Taylor's influence on the romantic and metaphysical poets of his day, as well as the American transcendentalists was immeasurable: Blake, Shelly, Wordsworth, and Emerson all hymned his praises, whereas Disraeli was one of many who condemned his paganism (most bitingly in his novel VAURIEN, and again in his CURIOSITIES OF LITERATURE). This, his penultimate book, is one of his rarest publications, and one of his most personal: he named his last-born son Thomas Proclus Taylor. Rebacked, with the original spine label preserved.

        Biographical Memoir of Daniel Boone, the First Settler of Kentucky: Interspersed with Incidents in the Early Annals of the Country

      N. and G. Guilford and Co.8vo, contemporary cloth, illustrated with frontispiece portrait of Boone, and 9 full page illustrations, 252pp. Binding shows some wear, and book has slight tilt. Frontispiece somewhat faded, the usual foxing, and a little staining. Has been rebacked, and overall is in very good condition. This is a first edition, second issue of Flintâ??s (1780-1840) popular biography of Boone. This work appeared in some 14th editions, and did much to establish Boone as a frontier legend. Not surprisingly, there is a lot of exaggeration in the work, which is illustrated with several illustrations showing Boone, in a coonskin hat, shooting panthers, fighting bears, and exploring the â??wild frontierâ??. In reality, Boone (1734-1820) did live a colorful life, even if he didnâ??t shoot panthers off the backs of buffaloes. He was an Indian fighter, an explorer, and even fought in the French and Indian War. While Boone will forever be linked with the early settlement of Kentucky, he did live in West Virginia for ten years, and ended up settling in Missouri.

His patient, a Canadian half-breed who had received a near-mortal gunshot wound in the abdomen and chest, recuperated over a period of many months, sustaining a permanent fistula in the stomach wall through which Beaumont was able to study the process of digestion. Beaumont began his observations in 1825 and continued them for nearly eight years, over which time his patient fully recovered. & & Horblit 10; Dibner, Heralds of Science, 130; Garrison-Morton 989.

        THE PERSONAL NARRATIVE OF JAMES O. PATTIE, OF KENTUCKY, DURING AN EXPEDITION FROM ST. LOUIS, THROUGH THE VAST REGIONS BETWEEN THAT PLACE AND THE PACIFIC OCEAN, AND THENCE BACK THROUGH THE CITY OF MEXICO TO VERA CRUZ

      Cincinnati, 1833. 300pp, plus five plates. Full calf, spine expertly mended with gold stamped back label. The second edition of Pattie's narrative, differing from the 1831 edition only in the reprinted titlepage. The sheets in each edition are from the same printing. The editor and virtual author, Cincinnati literary lion Timothy Flint, achieved such a poor sale of the original edition that he canceled the titlepage and reissued the work with the 1833 date to make it seem current. Reese Cat 257 item 240: "...The Pattie account is one of the classics of Western Americana. The author and his father were engaged in the fur trade in the Southwest in the 1820s. In 1828 they went overland to California, only the second American group to make the trip by a southern route (the first was Jedediah Smith in 1826), and the first to publish an account of their journey. The party experienced difficulty and dangers in New Mexico, Arizona, and California, where they were tossed in jail by Mexican authorities and the elder Pattie died. The son was released after he aided in vaccinating people during a smallpox epidemic. A major work of Californiana and Western Americana." GRAFF 3217. WAGNER-CAMP 45:2. CLARK III:83. HILL 1317.

        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.

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!).

ROCHOUX est célèbre pour avoir, le premier, démontré que l'apoplexie était une hémorragie (cérébrale) par rupture , que les symptômes observés dans l'apoplexie reconnaissaient toujours, pour cause, un épanchement de sang dans le crâne. « La description de l'apoplexie par hémorragie cérébrale, faite par Rochoux en 1814, a été ultérieurement confirmée par Cruveilhier, par Virchow, par Charcot, puis par J. Lhermitte, qui ont étudié les lésions correspondantes ». (Bariéty & Coury p. 874) [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Voyages round the World; with selected Sketches of Voyages to the South Seas

      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 boards, the back repaired and the original green cloth spine with printed label laid down; with a cloth box. First edition: rare. London and Paris editions appeared in 1834, and a second American edition of 1838 was followed by three reprints; all are now scarce. This is the Library of Congress deposit copy, with a note of deposit on the title, release stamp on verso, and the library label.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 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.
