        Texas. Observations, Historical, Geographical and Descriptive, In a Series of Letters, Written Durting a Visit to Austin's Colony

      Baltimore: Armstrong & Plaskitt, 1833. 12mo., (7 2/8 x 4 3/8 inches). Copyright notice on a small slip affixed to verso of title-page, as in some copies. Folding engraved map of Texas and Coahila (11 3/8 x 14 inches) by W. Hooker (occasionally heavy spotting). Original blue cloth, upper cover with title "TEXAS" gilt-stamped within a decorative cartouche (slightly rubbed); modern quarter blue morocco slipcase and chemise. Provenance: Contemporary ownership inscription of "Tompkins" on front paste-down; bookplate of C.B. Sanders M.D. on front paste-down. FIRST EDITION, AN OUTSTANDING COPY OF "ONE OF THE TEXAS CLASSICS," THE FIRST BOOK ENTIRELY ON TEXAS IN ENGLISH, AND THE BEST CONTEMPORARY ACCOUNT OF EARLY TEXAS. The work is an epistolary account of the author's journey in the fall of 1831 from the mouth of the Brazos to Bolivar, where her brother Henry had founded a new settlement. Holley's enthusiastic account of the new promised land of Texas, dedicated to her cousin Stephen Fuller Austin and possibly written with Austin's help, was published with the intention of assisting her cousin in attracting new settlers. At this she succeeded, thanks to the extraordinary abilities of her remarkable cousin, assisted by economic conditions which attracted hordes of emigrants to the new territory. Though rife with superlatives on the subject of Texas ("a tract of surpassing beauty"), Holley's prose is delightful and her account full of interest for the modern reader. Noteworthy to the modern reader is Holley's awareness of the appeal of a feminine perspective: her introduction concludes with a tribute to "emigrant mothers, on whom the comfort of every family, and the general well-being of the infant colony, so much depends", for whom she hopes that "a journal in detail, of one of themselves, would furnish more hints for the judicious arrangements of the voyage... than could be gathered from the more abstract and general views of gentleman travelers" (p.15). Holley and Austin had hoped to use Austin's original map, published by the Philadelphia map publisher H. S. Tanner, for the book, but Tanner refused, and they were obliged to make use of another map based on Austin's sources, by the engraver William Hooker. Hooker's map covers the area extending from just east of New Orleans to about a degree west of Santa Fe, and from just south of the mouth of the Rio Grande northwards to just north of the 38th parallel, above the big bend of the Arkansas River. It is of one of the earliest maps of Texas to show the entire territory, including the Panhandle, and one of the first to identify the vast land grants awarded to the earliest settlers. An earlier state of the map, without imprint and with some slight variations in the land grant names, had been issued by Hooker separately, and a later state appeared in an anonymous 1834 tract titled A Visit to Texas (Streeter, Bibliography of Texas, 1155). Three issues or states of the book are recorded, with no priority established, one without copyright notice and the others with the copyright notice on either a pasted-in slip or printed directly on the title verso; this copy is form the latter issue (Jenkins' issue B). Copies of the first edition are scarce, and almost never found in the impeccable condition of the present copy, preserved in its original binding, and with the map in pristine condition. Sabin 32528; Streeter, Bibliography 1135; Jenkins, Basic Texas Books 93; Graff 1924; Howes H593.

      Philadelphia; Printed For The Author, And Sold By E. L. Carey And A. Hart. 1833. Cloth. Original Cloth. 1833-34 [5594]. 8vo. VIII, [1], 278 pages. 23 cm. First edition. Rosenbach 375; Singerman 0578. Part the First: Containing a Defence of the Revelation of the Pentateuch, and of the Jews for their adherence to the same. Bound with “Part the Second: Four Essays on the relative importance of Judaism and Christianity. ” Leeser’s first book, published in 1833, a spirited defense of Jewish faith and practice. Bound in original cloth boards, re-backed with a new paper spine label. An important milestone in the history of Judaism in America. “In 1834, [Leeser] published The Jews and Mosaic Law, a defense of the Revelation of the Pentateuch and of the Jews ‘for their adherence to same. ’ The book's twenty-six chapters show wide reading in the contemporary religious literature. Leeser was aware that just as he was reading works on religion written by Christians, so too were many other young Jews. What was needed was a polemic arguing for loyalty to the ancestral faith and adherence to its ways. ” (Abraham Karp, From the Ends of the Earth: Judaic Treasures of the Library of Congress, 1991) “In Aug. , 1829, Leeser went to Philadelphia with the manuscript of his first book (‘The Jews and the Mosaic Law’) in his pocket and great thoughts for Israel in his mind. Up to that time the ? Azzanim in America had been merely precentors. There was, however, a new movement in Europe. The Hamburg Temple had put forward Gotthold Salomon; and preaching in German had become the Reformed fashion, while the new Conservatives had met it by electing to the Hamburg rabbinate Bernays, who also delivered sermons in the vernacular. Something of this ferment had leavened the thoughts of Leeser; and he hoped to transform the reading-desk into the pulpit and the teacher's rod into the editorial wand. On June 2, 1830, he delivered his first English discourse, and thenceforward preached with reasonable regularity, though on sufferance only, until June 18, 1843, when the congregation formally accepted the sermon as regular. The scarcity of books concerning the Jewish religion emphasized the fact that there was no American Jewish publisher. Having translated Johlson's ‘Instruction in the Mosaic Religion, ’ Leeser issued in the winter of 1829-30 proposals to publish it and ‘The Jews and the Mosaic Law. ’ As no one would take the risk, however, he became his own publisher. ” (1906 Jewish Encyclopedia) . Subjects: Judaism - Apologetic works. Judaism. Christianity and other religions - Judaism. Scarce, the last copy appearing at auction was in 1999, over 13 years ago. Light soiling to boards and outer edges, light foxing throughout, overall, clean and fresh. Very Good Condition. (AMR-44-2) .

      West Point. [nd, ca. 1833-1837].. Various paginations. Folio. Contemporary three-quarter sheep and paper boards, gilt morocco label of "J. Hooker" on front board. Rubbed, scuffed, and edgeworn, chipped at spine ends. Ex-lib. with small bookplate on front pastedown. Pencil notes, likely in Hooker's hand. Internally clean, tight, and very good. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. A remarkable contemporary bound volume of ten military and technical manuals, with supplemental material, printed for use by the cadets at West Point at the school's lithographic press. Although a few of these works turn up individually in library catalogues (most notably in the CATALOGUE OF THE UNITED STATES MILITARY ACADEMY compiled in 1876, which lists some of the titles collectively and individually), most were issued in very limited numbers solely for the use of cadets at the Military Academy, and consequently all are very rare. The volume in hand thus presents a trove of specimens from one of the most interesting early American lithographic presses. Little is known about the school's lithographic establishment, founded in 1831, but one can surmise that George Aspinwall, whose name appears as lithographer on the final two works in this collection, was hired to meet the school's need for detailed, well illustrated instruction manuals. An article, "Tentative List of Textbooks Used in the United States Military Academy 1802-1902," published in the CENTENNIAL OF THE UNITED STATES MILITARY ACADEMY...1802-1902 (GPO, 1904), includes only some of the titles present here, at times listing them under the famed military educator, Capt. D.H. Mahan, and sometimes with later dates of publication, indicating likelihood that these books were reprinted over the years. The technical subject matter covered in these books is fascinating, and illustrative of the increasingly professional nature of military training and of West Point. As Barton Hacker has noted: "Pursuing the art of war could now begin from a solid base, the underlying principles codified as military science to be taught in the classroom...." At West Point the 1830s brought a new era in the course of study, based on the experiences of Capt. Mahan in France, which gave rise to the courses of study exemplified in these manuals. Michael Twyman has detailed the operations of the British lithographic press at Chatham and the French military lithographers at Metz. The latter certainly served as the model for Mahan, who introduced similar practices to West Point. Besides their significance for military science, engineering, and architecture, these works are specimens of American lithography, produced at a relatively early date, with much skill and attention to detail. Although all quite rare, they were plainly works of great influence, since they would have been studied by all West Point graduates of the era, many of them men who shaped American history over the coming decades. This volume was owned and compiled by Gen. Joseph Hooker, a skillful military commander and an ambitious officer, who graduated from West Point in 1837. It would seem that he had these manuals bound up while he was at West Point, or perhaps soon after his graduation, and thus preserved copies of the actual textbooks he used as a student. Upon graduation, Hooker served in Florida, the Northeast, and at West Point, until finding his first professional success during the Mexican War. In that conflict "he performed so superbly both as a staff and combat officer that he received three brevet promotions, the final one to lieutenant colonel. No other northern commander of the coming Civil War emerged from the Mexican conflict with a better record or higher reputation than Hooker" (ANB). In the 1840s he was transferred to Sonoma, California, but became disenchanted by military life and resigned in 1853, engaging in ranching and business, dabbling in politics, and incurring a large personal debt. In 1861 he applied to be reinstated to the army, and was appointed brigadier general by Lincoln. Hooker distinguished himself at several battles, including Seven Days, Second Manassas, Sharpsburg, and Fredericksburg, and he earned the sobriquet, "Fighting Joe Hooker." In January 1863, Lincoln elevated him to commander of the Army of the Potomac. Hooker resigned the commission in mid-1863 following a defeat at the hands of Lee and Jackson at Chancellorsville, but went on to distinguish himself in Tennessee and as a commander in William T. Sherman's march through the South, despite the fact that he and Sherman largely detested each other. Though Hooker's name has come down through history associated with excessive drink and licentiousness, the truth about the man is much more complex, and his accomplishments are significant. One scholar has offered this balanced assessment of Hooker's military abilities: "First, he had few equals and perhaps no superior among Union generals as a commander of a corps or any force he could personally supervise and inspire. Second, he was deficient, as revealed at Chancellorsville, in those qualities of mind and temperament needed to lead a large army in a successful offensive campaign against a foe as redoubtable as Lee and his Army of Northern Virginia. But, then, the only northern general who ever did so was Grant, and it took him a year and 100,000 casualties to do it. Thus it is quite possible that if Hooker had gone against any Confederate army commander other than Lee, he would have garnered the glory he sought" (ANB). The works are as follow: 1) NOTES SUPPLEMENTARY TO THE COURSE OF PERMANENT FORTIFICATION [caption title]. 26pp. plus two folding plates (one plate split with loss of half). With pencil marginalia in Hooker's hand. A detailed course on all manner and size of forts and fortifications, and how to attack and defend them. The final portion covers the intricacies of accurately drawing fortifications. 2) NOTE ON THE APPLICATION OF THE PRINCIPLES OF FORTIFICATION TO THE DETERMINATION OF THE TRAÇÉ AND RELIEF OF A BASTIONED FRONT ON A HORIZONTAL PLANE OF SITE [caption title]. 52pp. plus five folding plates. With pencil underlining and marginal computations in Hooker's hand. A highly technical manual on the drawing and construction of forts and fortifications. 3) PROBLEMS OF DESCRIPTIVE GEOMETRY REFERRED TO ONE PLANE OF PROJECTION. 20pp. plus two folding plates. With Hooker's pencil notes on the verso of one of the plates. More consideration of the properties of forts, their construction, and their attack or defense, from a mathematical perspective. 4) NOTES ON THE ATTACK AND DEFENCE OF PERMANENT WORKS [caption title]. 36pp. plus four plates (three folding). An important early American manual on the science of warfare. Hooker has underlined several sections of this work, the ideas in which doubtless served him in good stead during the Civil War. The NUC locates copies at The New York Public Library and Harvard. Not at the Military Academy. 5) COMPOSITION OF ARMIES [caption title]. 36pp. plus folding plate. This manual contains sections on marches, battles, and convoys. The final section notes that "in our country we have a peculiar foe to contend against" and covers the elements of Indian warfare. Interestingly, parallels are drawn between the experiences of the Romans in invading Gaul and Britain and the challenges faced by the U.S. army in battling Indians. The NUC locates only the Harvard copy. The Military Academy has what seems to be another issue, with thirty-two pages and a folding plate. 6) NOTES ON MINES [caption title]. 40pp. plus two folding plates. Directions on constructing mines for use in military attacks. This work is particularly interesting in light of the participation in the Civil War of many of the cadets who studied these manuals. The NUC locates only one copy, at Harvard, and there is a copy at the Military Academy. 7) OUTLINES OF THE COURSE OF CIVIL ENGINEERING [caption title]. 172pp. including in-text illustrations and two plates, plus one folding plate. [with:] SUPPLEMENTAL NOTES MASONRY. 15pp. [with:] NOTE 2. THEORY OF THE PRESSURE AND STABILITY OF ARCHES. 14pp. [with:] NOTE 3. THEORY OF THE PRESSURE OF VOUSSOIRS AND THE STABILITY OF CENTERS. 3pp. [with:] NOTE 4. THEORY OF PILE DRIVING. 4pp. [with:] NOTE 5. METHODS OF GAUGING WATER COURSES. 13pp. Hooker has written his name twice on the first page of the first manual, and his pencil notes are found throughout. The note on arches includes an entire blank leaf filled with Hooker's notes and mathematical computations. Civil engineering is one of the core plans of study at West Point, as is evident from the lengthy textbook and supplemental material covered here. The manuals are elaborately illustrated with in-text illustrations and cover roads, bridges, waterways, and more, with extensive sections on the materials used in their construction. 8) NOTE ON MOVEABLE MILITARY BRIDGES [caption title]. 15pp. including illustrations. One full-page plate shows the construction of a rope bridge, and several in- text illustrations demonstrate the engineering aspects of the construction of moveable bridges made of wood and other materials. 9) NOTE ON ARCHITECTURE [caption title]. 16pp. plus nine plates. On last page: "Lith. by Geo. Aspinwall 1834-35." A survey of classic architecture and architectural terms, with plates depicting Greek and Roman columns. This manual demonstrates the concern of West Point in educating its officers in non-military engineering, with most of the text devoted to the orders of classical architecture. A significant American architectural rarity, not in Hitchcock. The NUC locates one copy, at NNC. 10) GUNPOWDER [caption title]. [2],8pp. On last page: "Lith. by Geo. Aspinwall. 1835." These notes were printed "to supply a deficiency in the Chemical text book." They relate to the chemical principles of the composition and decomposition of gunpowder, and avoid the technical details of its manufacture, which were covered in the course on Pyrotechny.

        Reise um die Erde durch Nord Asien und die Beiden Oceanie

      Berlin,: 1833-, 1848.. Seven volumes, the five text volumes untrimmed and unopened, including three folding hand-colored maps, a color key to the maps, and four lithographed folding plates, quarto geographical atlas of eleven lithographed views (two folding), folio natural history atlas with seventeen lithographed plates (two colored) and ink stamp on both titles; some light tanning and foxing but a near fine set in uniform three quarter green morocco, spines gilt, in matching cloth slipcases. One of the rarest and best - yet least-known - accounts of 19th century exploration in northeastern Asia, Siberia, Russian America, and the northern Pacific ocean. Erman's study is even less well-known, however, for its significant and early scientific observations made in the Americas, including in Sitka and San Francisco in late 1829. The work is comprised of a three-volume account of Adolph Erman's travels in the years 1828-30, a two-volume natural history text, an atlas of geographical views, and a natural history atlas. Erman contributed a great deal to the scientific and literary material regarding Russia and Russian America, and in 1844 he was awarded a medal from the Royal Geographical Society. Erman's work was issued in parts over a span of fifteen years and is almost never found as a complete set.Adolph Erman, born in Berlin in 1806, was a scientist and traveller in the mould of Alexander von Humboldt. A physicist by training, in 1828 he undertook to travel around the world, departing with the company of Christopher Hantseen, which was to carry out magnetic measurements in Siberia. Erman travelled eastward across Russia, and when the Hantseen expedition turned back at Kyakhta he proceeded onward at his own expense to Yakutsk and Okhotsk. He crossed the Sea of Okhotsk to Kamchatka and journeyed across the peninsula to the port of Petrovalovsk, where he met the ship of Leontii Hagemeister, who was supplying Russian colonies in Alaska.Erman travelled with Hagemeister to Sitka (where he apparently observed the sea otter pictured in the natural history atlas) and then on to San Francisco, Tahiti, the coast of South America, and then around the Horn to Europe. Several sources contend that Erman actually travelled back to Europe with the Russian expedition of Fedor Lutke (see Howgego, for example) but this appears to be incorrect, based on the chronology provided by Littke (see below). Erman's textual narrative ends with him in Kamchatka in October, 1829.Erman spent several years after his return to Germany preparing the manuscript of his travels, which was published in parts through the 1830s and 1840s. The text volumes describing his journey contain detailed observations on zoology, botany, geography and ethnology, as well as accounts of the peoples and places he encountered. Included are descriptions of a trip down the Ob River, the culture of the Ostyanks and Samoyeds, a discussion of the geology and geography of the northern Urals, Yakutsk, and Okhotsk areas, and brief Yakut and Tungus vocabularies. Erman travelled across Kamchatka in the summer and fall of 1829 and describes his wanderings over land and by river, as well as details of the geography, geology, botany, volcanoes, zoology, meteorology, and ethnology of the peninsula. He also includes a vocabulary of the Kamchadal dialect.The two volume natural history text contains observations on latitude and longitude, as well as geomagnetic studies and magnetic observations made on land in Siberia, Kamchatka, Alaska, California, and South America, as well as on the Pacific Ocean. Apart from the wealth of scientific studies and readings Erman made in Russia, he performed the same tests and reported the same results for Sitka, Alaska in November, 1829, San Francisco in December of that year, all across the Pacific Ocean, and in Rio de Janeiro in the spring of 1830. The natural history texts, therefore, contain an impressive amount of early, accurate scientific material on Alaska, California, and South America.The plates in the geographic atlas (each of which contains at least two and up to four views) are without captions, but are keyed to the places described in the text volumes. They chiefly depict scenes in Kamchatka, showing forests, waterways, mountains and volcanoes. The natural history atlas features attractive lithographs of birds (the majority of the images), a sea otter from Sitka, fish, insects, and plants.An important work of travel and science in Asia and Russia, with significant scientific material on California and Alaska.Arctic Bib, 4661; BM (NH) II, 539; Nissen, 1305.

        On the mechanical arrangements of the analytical engine of the late Charles Babbage, In Report of the fifty-eighth meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science held at Bath in September 1888. London: John Murray, 1889. Pp. 616-7.

       First edition of the only early printed account of the operation of Babbage?s Analytical Engine (as opposed to the difference engine, of which there are several contemporary accounts, notably that by Ada Lovelace).  Presentation copy to the BAAS.  ?The paper sketches the origin of the engine in 1833-4 and describes the chief means employed to direct it.   The cards which have been already more or less described.  The principle of ?chain,? by which any possible contingency among many may be provided for.  There is a movable block for each event anticipated, which on the occurrence of the event is moved into a certain position; a lever or arm is made to act, so that when the movable block is in that position it is moved and passes on the motion to something else, effecting whatever change may be desired in the mechanism...? (?On the mechanical arrangements,? 617).The BAAS "praised the basic conception of the analytical engine 'as a marvel of mechanical ingenuity and resource,' but concluded that 'in the present state of the design it is not more than a theoretical possibility; that is to say, we do not consider it a certainty that it could be constructed and put together so as to run smoothly and correctly, and to do the work expected of it...  we have come, not without reluctance, to the conclusion, that we cannot advise the BA to take any steps, either way of recommendation or otherwise, to procure the construction of Mr. Babbage's Analytical Engine.'  However, according to Babbage's son, an arithmetic unit was used to give a successful demonstration to the committee of the operation of addition, with parallel assimilation of the carry digits" (Randell, Ludgate's Analytical Machine of 1909, 14, 3, Computing Science, 317).CONDITION & DETAILS:  Original publisher?s cloth, covers decorated in blind, spine lettered in gilt.  Some rubbing and scuffing at the edges; a bit of surface dirt and two small holes to the spinal cloth at the rear hinge.  Presentation copy from the BAAS (printed slip tipped onto front paste-down), library bookplates on front paste-down and fron free endpaper, no other library marks either internally of externally.  Clean and bright throughout.

      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.

        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.

        Novels By Miss Jane Austen - Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice, Emma, Mansfield Park and Northanger Abbey / Persuasion

      London: Richard Bentley, 1833. Five volumes complete - Sense and Sensibility - xv, [1], 331pp, [1]; Pride and Prejudice - [4], 340pp; Emma [2], 435pp, [1]; Mansfield Park [2], 424pp and Northanger Abbey / Persuasion - [2], 440pp. Uniform contemporary full calf, raised bands, with spines in six panels, morocco running title label to second panel, matching volume title label to third, remaining panels gilt with double fillet frames and volute corner pieces, volume number to fourth panel and date to foot, covers with gilt double fillet border with an inner triple fillet frame in blind, gilt roll to edges, all edges marbled with Stormont pattern marbled endpapers. Slightly rubbed to extremities, corners lightly bumped. Volume five has a small repair to head of upper joint, boards very slightly bowed. Internally some light foxing and browning, front joint of volume four slightly cracked between the ffeps, but holding well with no real weakness. Armorial book plate of Edward St. John Mildmay to front pastedowns , with the name of Letitia Mildmay (his grand-daughter) in ink to ffeps. Volumes three, four and five lack the half-titles. Each volume with the additional engraved title and frontispiece. Now housed in a cloth, velvet lined slipcase made by Temple Bookbinders. 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.

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".

III Sopra la solidità architettonica, Cap. IV Della Bellezza architettonica, Cap.V Aggiunta di osservazioni lodoliane, Cap. 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.

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 .
