        Illustrations of the Game Birds of North America Chiefly the size of Nature.

      1834. Edinburgh, Frazer & Co.; Dublin, William Curry Jnr. & Co.; Glasgow, John Smith & Son; London, Smith, Elder & Co., 1834. Folio (546 x 410mm). With engraved title by James Turvey, engraved dedication, and 16 finely hand-coloured engraved plates after Thomas Brown, A.Rider, J.B.Kidd, and others, engraved by W.H.Lizars and others, a few minor restorations to plate edges, plates laid on old tissue and watermarked 1831-1835. Publisher's brown cloth gilt with embossed pattern, morocco title-label on upper cover, rebacked to match (in a modern cloth box). Extremely rare. The scarcest book on American Game-Birds. According to Walter Faxon only three copies of this work could be found in 1919, and only one copy (with 15 of the 16 plates) is listed as having sold at auction in the last one hundred years (Sotheby's 10 December 1909, lot 951). Although this work essentially contains a selection of the plates from Brown's larger work 'Illustrations of American Ornithology', 1831-35, they are coloured in a softer, less bold manner that appears to give a more life like appearance. The 'Game Birds' was issued before the completion of the 'American Ornithology'. Zimmer, p.102; Fine Bird Books (1990) p. 82; W.Faxon, The Auk 36, 1919, p. 626; Nissen IVB, 153..

I partly erasesd); later signature of Miriam[?] Lawson to the head of the title page to vol. I. A very good set with excellent provenance. (Bibliographic note: it is unusual to find such works in their original state, and while not bound up in a handsome binding, there is charm and purity in having the books "as delivered from the printer", before being trimmed and otherwise "adulterated". This being the case any intevention by way of restoration has been kept to a minimum, just ensuring serviceability.). First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good. 4to.

        The Works of Robert Burns with his Life

      London - James Cochrane and Co., 1834 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A beautiful set of the Works or Robert Burns with his Life by Allan Cunningham. Complete in eight volumes. With illustrations. Volume I contains the Life of Robert Burns by Allan Cunningham, and volumes II-VIII contain his complete works. Robert Burns (25 January 1759 21 July 1796) (also known as Robbie Burns, Rabbie Burns, Scotland's favourite son, the Ploughman Poet, Robden of Solway Firth, the Bard of Ayrshire and in Scotland as The Bard) was a Scottish poet and lyricist. He is widely regarded as the national poet of Scotland and is celebrated worldwide. He is the best known of the poets who have written in the Scots language, although much of his writing is also in English and a light Scots dialect, accessible to an audience beyond Scotland. He also wrote in standard English, and in these his political or civil commentary is often at its bluntest. Allan Cunningham (7 December 1784 30 October 1842) was a Scottish poet and author. His father was a neighbour of Robert Burns at Ellisland and so he also later brought outthis edition of Robert Burns' Works. Condition: In maroon calf leather bindings with raised gilt bands to the spine. Externally, smart with just minor shelfwear. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean. Overall: FINE..

        Autographed Letter Signed

      Whitehall, 1834. unbound. Historically important autographed letter signed, 2 pages, each fold-out spread measuring 9.25 x 14 inches, Whitehall, December 12, 1834, his second day in office as Prime Minister in a Administration that would fail in less than 100 days, to the Duke of Wellington, informing him that Lord Stanley has rebuffed his offer to join the Government, in full: "I inclose Lord Stanley's answer, which you will see is not only decisive against his own acceptance - but must be equally so against that of any of his adherents. I have not heard from Sir James Graham. When you read the inclosed, be good enough to send on the Boy with the Letter to the King - to His Majesty. I think it would be very desirable - that you and I should meet as soon as we can this morning. Shall we meet at the Home office and will you send to the Chancellor and let him know the time?" Footnote: On December 9, 1834, at the height of the National Crisis, Peel wrote an extraordinary letter of conciliation to Lord Stanley, inviting him to serve in his Ministry: [in small part] "Under ordinary circumstances...I might have shrunk from the apparent presumption of inviting your accession to a Government of which I am to be the head - might have weighed the various considerations which might influence you to decline the offer, and the possible prejudice to a new Government from its rejection; but the great practical questions of which serious difference could have arisen between us are, I trust, finally and irrevocably settled...I have this day proposed the appointment of Duke of Wellington to the office of Foreign Secretary and have written to Sir James Graham...to enter into the Kings service". On December 11th Lord Stanley declined Peels' olive branch and further revealed the disdain and contempt he held towards the Duke of Wellington: [in small part] "I am asked to join, you being its acknowledged head; the Duke of Wellington, filling the office of Foreign Secretary; and your followers, to whom I have alluded, being the principal constituent parts of the Government. You will not mistake me if I say that private feeling, as well as political judgment alike, disinclines me to the adaptation of this proposal...I am persuaded that joining your Government, thus suspected and lowered in public opinion, I shall diminish its strength rather than add to its efficiency. My desire to promote the public good, compel me firmly, to decline it..." Both letters can be read in their entirety in Memoirs: r. h. Sir Robert Peel, published by Lord Mahon and E. Caldwell, 1857. Many historians today agree that Stanley's rebuff of Peel's offer was a critical blow to the administration. Letters by Peel with significant content rarely come to market as most were acquired by institutions and libraries years ago. Very good condition. British Conservative statesman who served as Prime Minister from December 10, 1834 to April 8, 1835, and again from 1841 to 1846.

        Die Sternschnuppen sind Steine aus den Mondvulkanen, die einen Durchmesser von 1 bis 5 Fuss haben, und welche bei 8000 Fuss Geschwindigkeit in 1 Secunde nicht wieder auf den Mond zurückkommen, und die dann mit Millionen um die Erde herumlaufen

      Four lithographed plates (one folding). 1 p.l., xvi, 80 pp. 8vo, early wrappers (some foxing). Bonn: E. Weber, 1834. First edition of this interesting book; from the library of Carl Friedrich Gauss. Benzenberg (1777-1846), professor of mathematics at the Lyceum in Düsseldorf, performed many original scientific investigations in the fields of astronomy, physics, and geodetics. He is most famous for being the first to demonstrate that the earth revolves, a problem which had perplexed scientists since Copernicus. Gauss and Benzenberg were at Göttingen at the same time and surely knew each other. This is one of several works by Benzenberg on the origin of meteorites. He agreed with Chladni's theory concerning their cosmic origins. But Benzenberg used his data to formulate a theory that shooting stars are stones from moon volcanoes. Three of the plates depict several meteorites and their paths in the sky. The folding plate contains a fine map of the moon. Very good copy with the stamp of the Royal Observatory at Göttingen on half-title (with release stamp), title, and on the backs of the plates. While this copy does not have the stamp of the Gauss Bibliothek, it is from Gauss's library. ❧ D.S.B., I, pp. 615-16. Not known to Whitaker, Mapping and Naming the Moon or Ashworth, The Face of the Moon. .

        Il costume antico e moderno o storia del governo, della milizia, della religione, delle arti, scienze ed usanze di tutti i popoli antichi e moderni provata coi monumenti dell' antichita e rappresentata cogli analoghi disegni.

      Milan, tipografia dell'editore, 1829-1834. - Folio (380 x 265 mm). 37 vols incl. supplements and index. With 7 engr. folding maps, 5 engr. maps, 1619 coloured aquatints (2 double-page-sized), 2 engr. portraits, 2 engr. plates of musical notes, and 4 tables. Late 19th century half calf with giltstamped spine title. Untrimmed. Without question the largest pictorial encyclopedia of the world published during the 19th century, and one of the rarest works to be found complete. Printed in a press run of no more than 300 copies, this set is numbered "12" and was inscribed to a friend of the author ("del socio Signor G. Ferrario"); as such, it was printed on superior paper and coloured particularly carefully (according to Brunet, most of the 300 copies produced were issued entirely uncoloured). The purpose of this 37-volume set in large folio format was to provide a complete account of all known parts of the world not only by describing in detail the various peoples' costumes, governments, religion, habits, military, arts and science, but also by showing them in splendid illustrations, all of which are here coloured by hand individually. The engravings include not only many costumes, but also buildings, objects of religious and of everyday use, monuments, historical scenes and much more. The plates are printed on wove paper and bear the publisher's drystamp. In spite of the enormous number of plates, the colouring is meticulous throughout. - Initially planned for no more than 13 volumes (1816-1827) and also published in French, this present Italian edition is the only one that was issued complete with all supplements and the plates in their impressive folio format. - Of the utmost rarity: we could not trace a single complete copy on the market since 1950. Auction records list only the abridged 8vo reprint or single volumes of the present folio edition (Sotheby's, May 28, 2002, lot 426: £8,720 for vol. I, pt. 3 only). Interior shows occasional slight foxing to blank margins. Altogether an excellent, complete set of the luxury edition: uniformly bound, untrimmed and wide-margined. Colas 1051. Hiler 311. Lipperheide Ad 7. Brunet II, 1232f.

        The exposition of 1851; or, views of the industry, the science, and the government, of England.London: John Murray, 1851.

      First edition, rare, especially in the original publisher's cloth. Chapter 13, entitled 'Calculating engines,' contains a description of the current state of development of Babbage's Analytical Engine. Conceived by him in 1834, this machine was designed to evaluate any mathematical formula and to have even higher powers of analysis than his original Difference Engine of the 1820s. Only part of the machine as a trial piece was completed before Babbage's death in 1871. "The Analytical Engine was a quantum leap in logical conception and physical size, and its design ranks as one of the startling intellectual achievements of the century... The Analytical Engine features many essential principles found in the modern digital computer and its conception marks the transition from mechanized arithmetic to fully-fledged general purpose computation... It is on the Analytical Engine that Babbage's standing as 'the first computer pioneer' largely rests" (computerhistory.org).<br/><br/> The Great Exhibition of 1851 was the outstanding public event of the Victorian era. Housed in Joseph Paxton's glass and iron Crystal Palace, it presented a vast array of objects, technologies and works of art from around the world. The first industrial exhibition of international scope, contemporary commentators attributed much wider significance to it. Prince Albert, in particular, argued that the Great Exhibition would bring nations together in a spirit of friendly rivalry, following the social upheavals of the previous decade. <br/><br/> "Lyon Playfair, who played a leading role in organizing the exhibition, had originally suggested that Babbage be put in charge of the exhibition's Industrial Commission, but Playfair's suggestion was rejected by the British government, which was still at loggerheads with Babbage over funding for his calculating engines. Babbage was also refused permission to display the completed portion of his Difference Engine no. 1 at the exhibition, even though the exhibition's purpose was to display the latest advances in industry, and Babbage's machine, though built twenty years earlier, was arguably the finest product of precision mechanical engineering to date. <br/><br/> "Angered at these slights, Babbage published this vitriolic history of the exhibition, in which he skewered the insularity and snobbism of its organizers, put forth his own ideas about how the exhibition should have been run, and sounded off on the corrupt state of science in England..." (OOC). <br/><br/> "Charles Babbage (1791-1871), one of the most original thinkers of the nineteenth century, is best remembered as the pioneer of computing technology, but he also made significant contributions to mathematics, mechanical engineering, philosophy and political economy. This book, first published in 1851, is an example of his active and effective campaigning for the role of scientists and the place of science, technology and technical education in society. Ahead of his time, Babbage was critical of government and the scientific community for not valuing science and technology in education. The work develops these themes, using the Great Exhibition as a backdrop to highlight the political and cultural factors that can impede scientific and technological progress. Britain's industrial supremacy, he argued, disguised the need to develop technical education. As relevant and persuasive today as in 1851, Babbage's arguments emphasise the fundamental importance of technology to the advancement of society" (from the introduction to the Cambridge University Press reprint, 2012). <br/><br/> A second edition was published later in the same year. <br/><br/> <i>Origins of Cyberspace</i> 67.

        Roman de la Violette, ou de Gerard de Nevers, En Vers, du XIIIe Siecle, Par Gibert de Montreuil; Publie, pour la premiere fois, d'apres deux manuscrits de la Bibliotheque Royale, par Francisque Michel

      Chez Silvestre, Paris 1834 - Eight spectacular hand-colored and illuminated plates on vellum. No. 20 of a limited edition of 200 total, and one of 15 copies on Hollande paper. 8vo. 22.5 by 15 cm, 9 by 6 inches. lxiv, [4 leaves], 334, [2] pp. Each of the plates is accompanied by a plain black and white lithographic version. The hand-colored versions easily pass for actual illuminated paintings, and indeed, the hand-colorist did not merely fill in color but also made some subtle changes to the illustration so that the hand-colored version does not match exactly the black and white one. The illumination on the vellum is of an uncommon precision and beauty so as to read as tantamount to manuscript, and the work is unquestionably superior to what one would find in the better works of Henry Shaw, who contemporaneously was producing iimportant books on the topic of illuminated manuscripts. The "Roman de la Violette" is based on the same story as Shakespeare's "Cymbeline". The binding of this copy is an exquisite example of French blindstamped leather of the period, with Greek-style ornament in the large centerpiece of the boards and a Gothic ornamental diaper impressed onto the spine, which also has raised bands. The binding has a few dings and tiny pinprick losses, and the joints have a slight goopiness of a earlier restoration, but the binding still comes off as very handsome. The volume itself fits into a custom slipcase with leather fringe and a wide ribbon pull. This copy had once belonged to the Ermitage in St. Petersburg. Full Calf, with Blindstamping, Gilt Decoration, etc. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
