        The Naturalist's Repository, or miscellany of exotic natural history exhibiting rare and beautiful specimens of foreign birds, insects, shells, quadrupeds, fishes and marine productions; more especially such new subjects as have not hitherto been figured, or correctly described; forming a compendium of the most interesting modern discoveries in zoology.

      London, printed for the author, and Simpkin & Marshall, 1834. 5 volumes. Royal-8vo (245 x 152mm). With 180 handcoloured engraved plates. Publisher's cloth. One of the most attractive, colourful natural history works of the period, describing many newly discovered exotic animals. The present copy is a title-edition of 1834, having the same plates and text as the first edition, with the only difference that a new title-page has been printed. The work was originally issued in monthly parts from 1823-7. The coloured plates are usually accompanied by one to three leaves of text. According to Buchannan 'Nature into Art', Donovan was particularly fond of using bright colours in his plates and the offered work is a very good example for this. 52 of the beautiful illustrations depict shells, 70 plates concern entomology and exotic butterflies figure extensively and 26 plates are devoted to birds. "It will be also seen from many of our pages that through the kindness of the late worthy president of the Royal Society, Sir Joseph Banks, the rich and truly scientific collection of that magnificent patron of sciences was ever open to us for the furtherance of our pursuits in Natural History; and of the object of the present work among others' (From the introduction). The work shows first depictions of butterflies and insects collected during the first Cook voyage such as plate 37 'Papilio Marica' of the second volume. Paper repair to title-pages, some traces of library stamps on verso of some plates not affecting the illustrations.//Provenance: Handwritten name of Kikumaro Okano on inside front-covers.//Nissen IVB, 259; Wood 323.

        Vendres from Vues des cotes de France dans l'ocean et dans la Mediterranee

      Paris, Panckcoucke 1834 - Ambroise-Louis Garneray (1783-1857) Plate from Vues des cotes de France dans l'ocean et dans la Mediterranee Paris: C.L.F. Panckcoucke, 1823-34 Aquatint plate, hand-colored by the artist 17” x 23 3/4”; 22” x 26” framed Ambroise-Louis Garneray was born February 1783. He received his first lessons in painting and drawing from his father, Jean-Francois, who was a pupil of Jacques-Louis David. The younger Garneray went to sea with the navy at the age of 13, and for nearly 18 years served on battle ships, slavers and whaling vessels on expeditions to the Caribbean and throughout the Pacific Ocean. Garneray finally returned to Paris in 1814 after spending eight years in England, where he had been detained after being captured at sea. He established himself as a marine painter upon his arrival, and studied engraving under Philibert Louis Debucourt. In 1815 Garneray was admitted to the Paris Salon, and exhibited his first painting “View of the Port of London” in 1816. He continued to exhibit, winning a gold medal in 1819, and later earned the patronage of Louis XVIII, who commissioned him to paint several scenes of naval battles. In 1833, Garneray was appointed director of the Rouen Museum, a post he resigned in 1837 to work on designs for the Sevres porcelain factory. While Garneray’s engravings of naval and whaling scenes are extremely popular, his greatest achievement is his series Vues des Cotes de France dans l’ocean et dans la Mediterranee. This series of views depicted the principal ports of France, Europe and the United States and was supplemented by the elegant prose descriptions of M.E. Jouy. The views pictured are of the towns of the French Riviera. Each print in this series exhibits endless attention to detail, incorporating architectural landmarks, ships, weather conditions, animals, and costumed figures in the midst of daily activities. Garneray has attempted to make the aquatint engravings resemble his original watercolor sketches by using very opaque hand-finishing, which sometimes almost totally obscures the engraved and color-printed base beneath, and by adding manuscript captions in pencil. Each print has been completely colored by Garneray himself.

Weber editorum, 1 plate. - - Still in the year 1851 (the first fasciculus) "De pulso, resorptione, auditu et tactu" (1834) wasn't sold out, so the publisher Köhler printed to promote the sales of this title a new title leave "Annotationes Anatomicae et Physiologicae. Programmata Collecta. Fasciculi Tres. Lipsiae, prostat apud C.F.Koehler, 1851", and added it to the new Fasiculus II and III togehter with supplement sheets for the Index for the pre owner of "De pulsu, resorptione, auditu et Tactu" and created such a new title for sale. - The paper of the part of 1834 and 1851 is slightly different and there is also no new print listed in Wilhelm Engelmann's Bibliotheca Medico-Chirurgica et Anatomico-Physiologica, Supplement (1867), p.271 and this explains why this item is such extremely rare. Engelmann erroneously names as publisher, but may then as source "(Leipzig, Ad. Winter)". But Callisen reports correct in volume 20, p.231 "De pulsu (p.1), resorbtione (p.13), auditu (p.25) et tactu (p.44-175). Annotationes anat. et physilogicae. Lips. prostat. ap. C.F.Köhler. 1834. .

E.H.Weber; ." - "A legendary rarity that has been unfindable for many decades -- no doubt because just about nobody but the egregiously eccentric G. H. Fechner paid any attention to it. Fechner, of course, named "Weber's law" after Ernst Heinrich, and gave the name "psychophysics" to the field. Ernst Heinrich Weber (1795-1878)"introduced new methods of measuring sensitivity, establishing perception as an experimental rather than an observational discipline. Working initially with the discrimination of lifted weights, Weber demonstrated that the smallest appreciable difference was a constant fraction of their actual weights. . (He went on to propose) a general law of discrimination that applied to all modalities but with fractions specific to the judgments involved. He introduced the use of calipers to measure two-point thresholds on the skin surface and found that sensitivity varied enormously, with greatest sensitivity around the lips and least on the trunk. The magnitude of the thresholds depended on the areas of the skin stimulated, which led Weber to introduce the concept of sensory circles -- areas on the skin surface that can result in the stimulation of a single peripheral nerve. His work represents a distinct shift in the psychology of perception from philosophy towards physiology, from speculation to experimentation, and from qualitative to quantitative approaches" Nicholas J.

        Entdeckung continuirlicher, durch Wimperhaare erzeugter Flimmerbewegungen, als eines allgemeinen Phänomens in den Klassen der Amphibien, Vögel und Säugethiere (pp.391-400).

      - Arch. Anat. Phys., 1834/5. - Berlin, G.Eichler, 1835, 8°, pp.391-480, 3 lith. Taf., orig. Broschur; unaufgeschnittenes Exemplar. First Report about the "Discovery of Ciliary Motion in Reptiles and Warm blooded Animals". William West - Further we find in this volume Purkyne's: "Der microtomische Quetscher, ein bei microscopischen Untersuchungen unentbehrliches Instrument" (pp.385-391,6 Abb.). - Bei Evertebraten und niederen Wirbeltieren war die Flimmerbewegung schon früher bekannt gewesen und vordem von einer Reihe von Forschern beschrieben worden. Aber Jan Evangelista Purkyne (1787-1869) Purkynë und Gabriel Gustav Valentin (1810-1883) waren die ersten, die diese Erscheinung bei höheren Tieren beobachteten. - Diese Entdeckung rief in der gelehrten Welt große Überraschung hervor. Das war der Anfang einer groß angelegten Versuchsreihe an vielen Organen und Systemen sowie an zahlreichen Tieren. Purkynë und Valentin stellten fest, daß Flimmerbewegung bei Wirbellosen und niederen Wirbeltieren im Hautsystem besteht, bei höheren Wirbeltieren sodann im Verdauungstrakt, in den Atemwegen und dem Geschlechtsapparat sowie schließlich, wie Purkynë nachträglich konstatierte, in den Höhlen des zentralen Nervensystems. Sie verfolgten dann individuelle Entwicklung, Wesen und Form der Flimmerbewegung, ihre Größe, Geschwindigkeit und Richtung, ferner, wie lange sie sich nach dem Tod des Lebewesens erhält und wie auf sie verschiedene Einflüsse wirken, wie physikalische (Erschütterungen, Licht, Wärme, Kälte, Elektrizität) oder chemische, angefangen von biologischen Flüssigkeiten wie Blut, Harn, Galle, Eiweiß und Milch, bis zu den üblichen Arzneien und Giften wie Belladonna, Morphin, Opium, Strychnin, Blausäure. - Ihre Forschungen zeigten, daß die Flimmerbewegung im Tierreich eine allgemeine Erscheinung ist und daß sie in den meisten vegetativen Systemen auftritt. Sie zeigt sich bereits in den Frühstadien der Entwicklung, ist weder vom Willen, noch vom Nervensystem, noch auch von der Muskeltätigkeit abhängig. Sie hängt weder von der Unversehrtheit des Gesamtorganismus ab - sie hält noch lange nach dem Tod an - noch von der Unversehrtheit des betreffenden Organs, denn sie überlebt auch an kleinen Gewebsfragmenten. Auf sie wirken nur lokale Einflüsse, d. h. sie ist von den örtlichen Verhältnissen abhängig, von der Unversehrtheit der Wimperhärchen selbst; sie ist der Ausdruck ihrer eigenen Vitalität. Aufgabe der Flimmerbewegung ist der Transport einer Flüssigkeit oder kleiner Partikel in einer bestimmten Richtung. - Die Feststellung, die Flimmerbewegung sei unabhängig vom Nervensystem, erregte gewisse Zweifel, z.B. bei J. Müller, der ansonsten diese Entdeckung hoch würdigte. Später zeigte sich aber, daß auch andere Formen der Bewegung unabhängig von Nerveneinflüssen existieren. Purkynës und Valentins Arbeit bleibt das klassische Werk über diese interessante physiologische Erscheinung, deren physikalisch-chemische Grundlage erst in letzter Zeit erhellt wird." V.Kruta, J.E.

        Bewick's Swan [Plate XLVII]

      [Edinburgh, 1834. Hand coloured engraving, finished with gum arabic. Printed on wove Whatman paper. A beautiful print of a swan from John Selby's seminal bird book "Illustrations of British Ornithology." Prideaux John Selby was a versatile gentleman naturalist. Born on 23 July 1788 in Alnwick, Northumberland, he inherited Twizell House and its estate in 1804, and throughout his life did not neglect his duties as a landowner, magistrate, High Sheriff, and then Deputy Lieutenant of Northumberland. He married Lewis Tabitha Mitford, the daughter of Bertram Mitford of Mitford Castle, Northumberland, in 1810, and by 1817 had a happy marriage, three daughters, and a house that had become a sort of upmarket staging-post for naturalists heading North and South along the nearby Great North Road. Visitors were to include John James Audubon (who gave Selby and his brother-in-law Robert Mitford lessons in drawing), Sir William Jardine (one of Selby's closest friends and a collaborator on various later works), John Gould, William Yarrell, H.E.Strickland, to name but a few. Natural history and ornithology had been Selby's passions from youth, and Christine Jackson notes, in her excellent introduction to the Sotheby's catalogue of the sale of the Bradley Martin collection of Selby watercolours, that, besides "collecting and preserving birds, Selby had observed them in the field, making careful notes of their habitat and habits. At his leisure, he also sensitively colored drawings of them. With this accumulation of practical knowledge, specimens, and some drawings, Selby embarked in 1819 on an ambitious project to publish the most up-to-date, life-size illustrations of British birds. Since he had an incomplete pictorial record of his birds, many remained to be drawn while publication of the parts of the work proceeded. The aim was to issue each part comprising twelve plates at regular intervals of six months. The size of the paper chosen was elephant folio (27" x 21½") in order that most of the birds might be represented life-size. For each plate, Selby made watercolor paintings of the species." "Selby etched his drawings on copper plates and then either took or sent the plates to William Home Lizars in Edinburgh. Either Lizars or one of his workmen took a pull [proof impression] from Selby's plate and worked on any parts necessary to bring the plate to a very fine state of completion. Selby and Sir William Jardine both purchased their copper plates and etching ground from Pontifex of London, and their letters refer to the progress made in drawing and 'biting' or etching their plates. If they made a mistake or accidently over-etched a plate, they relied on Lizars to correct by burnishing to lighten it" (Jackson, Bird Etchings, pp.202-204). BM (NH) IV,pp.1896-1896; cf. Fine Bird Books (1990) p.141; cf. Nissen IVB 853; cf. Zimmer p.571.

        Viage a los Estados-Unidos del Norte de America.

      Imprenta de Decourchant, Paris 1834 - 2 p. l., vii, 374 pp. 8vo. Contemporary tree calf, gilt bands, red morocco spine label. Hardback. The product of Lorenzo de Zavala's 1830 journey to the United States was this "incredibly important, although little known, travel narrative, a meticulously written narrative about the democratic culture and institutions of the United States. Zavala?s narrative not only stands as a major document of early Mexican-American letters, but also as one of the first theoretical and ethnographic examinations of democracy as a political and cultural institution. Thus, Zavala?s book challenges the widespread acceptance by American scholars that Alexis de Toqueville?s Democracy in America (1835) is the first book to take United States democracy as a focus of political and cultural study . Zavala?s story of democratic peoplehood will no doubt, in time, be read as one of the founding political texts of U.S. and Mexican democratic culture? (John-Michael Rivera, "Introduction" in "Journey to the United States of America [by Lorenzo de Zavala]" University of Houston, 2005, p. vii). Raines called it "One of the few books of travel in the United States worth reading. A fine picture of American manners, customs, and institutions, by a Mexican republican, with some notice of Austin's colonization in Texas. Zavala resigned his position as Mexican Minister to France on the usurpation of Santa Anna, and retired to the United States, and later to Texas. Aided Austin in preparing for the inevitable conflict with Mexico. First Vice-President of the Republic. A true patriot and uncompromising lover of liberty," (Bibliography of Texas, p. 224). This first edition, printed in Paris in a limited run, is quite uncommon; a second edition was issued at the time of the Mexican-American war, in Merida, in 1846. APBC shows only one first edition and one second edition at auction in the last forty years. Sabin 106280. LCP. Afro-Americana: 11459. Clark III:118. Howes Z3. Streeter: Texas 1156. Raines p. 224. A very good copy, joints scuffed, spine rubbed, a few leaves creased, scattered foxing. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Hoboken 4, 240. & & This copy once belonged to the conservatory in Dresden; its handstamp dates from the years 1919-1949 (it was the "Königliches [= Royal] Conservatorium" earlier and later the "Hochschule"). "Deutsche Staatsbibliothek Berlin" was the name of the East German branch of the former State Library in Berlin; the library acquired the copy in 1956, apparently from Dresden, and de-accessioned it later, most likely after the reunification of Germany. & & The fact that the present copy is finely printed on good quality heavy paper with a clear, strong impression suggests that this issue may, in fact, pre-date that with 10 leaves only.
