Map is outlined with contemporary hand coloring, and is in very good condition with one small .5" tear at the top edge of border.First English Edition of the First Part of Tocqueville’s extremely important and influential analysis of American democracy "one of the most important texts in political literature." (PMM).Democracy in America is "the first systematic and empirical study of the effects of political power on modern society" (Nisbet). The work originated in a trip commissioned by the French government to study the American penal system in 1831-32. In 1835, the first edition of the first part of the work (Volumes I and II) was published in Paris,--and throughout the intellectual circles of Western Europe both democracy and America took on a new aspect and a new significance in political speculation (NYU, 955). Overall, Tocqueville’s conclusions were that the trend of history would irresistibly lean towards equality; and that the future of France, indeed of the Western world, was bound up with the acceptance of democratic principles, these being the one effective means of avoiding submission to tyranny (Harvey and Heseltine, 711). The first part of the work was published in French in 1835, the present English edition was issued in the same year and precede the American edition. Tocqueville wrote to Reeve providing a critique of the translation: "Without wishing to do so and by following the instinct of your opinions, you have quite vividly colored what was contrary to Democracy and almost erased what could do harm to Aristocracy." (Letter from Tocqueville to Henry Reeve, October 15, 1839) Volume I with one rear page of ads. Howes T278, 279. Sabin 96062, 96063.

        Report from the Select Committee on the Conduct of General Darling, while Governor of New South Wales. With the Minutes of Evidence, and Appendix

      London: Ordered by the House of Commons to be Printed, 1835. Foolscap folio, iv, 168 pp., marginal water-stain affects the last twenty or so leaves, title-page thumbed with small loss of a little letterpress due to past adhesion; a good copy overall in handsome quarter brown calf with gilt label. Wentworth attacks Governor Darling for cronyism, ineptitude and corruption. This report clears former governor Ralph Darling, now promoted to General, of the serious charges brought against him during the impeachment instigated by William Charles Wentworth.The charges concerned several matters, namely the dubious nature of grants of crown land made by Darling, the case of Captain Robert Robinson and the mismanagement of funds for the New South Wales Veteran Companies, and also Darling's attempts to limit the freedom of the public press. The most serious, and controversial, of the charges related to his harsh disciplinary treatment of the two soldiers Sudds and Thompson, which resulted in the death of the former.The Select Committee cleared Darling of wrongdoing, and here publishes their findings along with the testimonies provided during the investigation. With regards to the military punishment the Committee ruled 'the conduct General Darling, with respect to the punishment inflicted upon Sudds and Thompson, was, under the peculiar circumstances of the Colony, especially at that period...entirely free from blame'.Ferguson comments that this report is 'An extremely important source of information with reference to this famous case.'This copy bears the ownership signature of colonial grazier and politician Sir William John Macleay.

        Manuscript Treatise - Ophthalmology - Diseases of the Eye

      Berlin, 1835. Berlin, 1835. Unpublished medical manuscript treatise on the diseases of the eye, a primary source account from the early years of ophthalmology as a separate field from medicine. Text is in German. Qto. 420 pages on laid watermarked paper, an extensive work in a fine hand, with wide margins. Text is in German. Volume measures approximately 18 x 21 x 5 cm. Grey paper boards showing minor wear, otherwise in excellent condition, internally crisp and bright. Substantial and scholastic, the writer puts forth an exhaustive treatise on ocular disease and injury, including commentary on the optic nerve. The volume begins with a 19 page introduction, in which the writer acknowledges sources and literature from which he draws some of his research, including important physicians, ophthalmologists and professors of the latter fields from the 18th and early 19th centuries. Among them is German physician, professor of medicine and naturalist Andreas Elias Büchner (1701-1769) who wrote an important work on the origin of the nerve. He also refers to a treatise published in 1740 by Paul Simon Hilscher (1682-1748), a respected professor of medicine in Jena, and prolific author of numerous treatises covering vast topics of medicine. As well as the Germans, he selects findings and discusses various theories of French, English, Dutch and Austrian physicians. Presenting numerous eye diseases, infections, and symptoms, together with topical treatments or fascinating procedures, rich in detail, the writer divides the text into three categories, dealing with the following: 1) exterior injuries and the optic nerve: sore eyelids, injuries of the ciliary body, the lens, the capsule of the retina of the corpus vitrei, the optic nerve and cornea, burns around the eyes and to the eyeball itself... 2) various forms of inflammation: inflammatory exudates, photopsia, conjunctivitis, inflammation of the lens capsule and the lens, ocular gonorrhea, ceratitis inflammation of the cornea, inflamed lacrimal glands, natural protective agents of the eye, therapeutic agents including ointments, the effects of exposure to air... 3) diseases of the cornea with a section on cataracts: corneal abscess, empyema, hypopyon, corneal staphyloma... A work in progress, the volume ends with a heading for a new section, "Krankheiten der innern Theile des Auges; Der Graue Staar; Cataracta" [Diseases of the Inner Parts of the Eye; The Gray Cataract; Cataracts]. Little known outside of the worlds of optometry and ophthalmology, the French Revolutionary Wars' Campaign in Egypt, 1798, or rather the excessive numbers of soldiers who suffered from inflammation of the eyes (ophthalmia), and the need for specialized treatment, had a profound effect on the modernisation of ophthalmology, which was previously not recognized as a special field of medicine. Some ophthalmologic events contemporary to this manuscript: German Baron Michael Johann Baptist de Wenzel (1724-1790) became oculist to King George III of England in 1772, and his skill at removing cataracts legitimized the field. Georg Joseph Beer (1763-1821), Austrian ophthalmologist and leader of the First Viennese School of Medicine, introduced a flap operation for treatment of cataracts (Beer's operation), as well as popularizing the instrument used to perform the surgery (Beer's knife). The first dedicated ophthalmic hospital was opened in 1805 in London (now called Moorfields Eye Hospital), its founder being John Cunnigham Saunders, who risked his reputation by devoting himself and an entire hospital solely to the cure of eye diseases. At the time, patients would seek out irregular physicians, sometimes with ill repute, as traditional practitioners and surgeons largely discarded this area of study. Ernst Karl Abbe (1840-1905), German physicist, optical scientist, and entrepreneur, developed numerous optical instruments. Together with Otto Schott and Carl Zeiss, he laid the foundation of modern optics. Polymath Hermann von Helmholtz (1821-1894) invented the ophthalmoscope in 1851. He is known for his mathematics of the eye, theories of vision, ideas on the visual perception of space, color vision research, and on the sensation of tone, perception of sound, and empiricism. In physics In 1822, in Messina, Carmelo Pugliati published his treatise on cataracts and artificial eyes, "Riflessioni the ottalmiatria pratica, che la concernono pupilla artificiale et la cataratte." 22 May 1828, Albrecht von Grafe, German eye surgeon and founder of modern ophthalmology, was born. The optic nerve, also known as cranial nerve II, is a paired nerve that which carries about one million nerve fibres and transmits visual information from the retina to the brain. .

        Essai Statistique sur les Bibliothèques de Vienne précédé de la Statistique de la Bibliothèque Impériale comparée aux plus grands établissemens de ce genre anciens et modernes

      - xiv, [2], 206, [12] pp. 8vo, cont. green sheep-backed green boards maroquiné (upper cover with a minor defect), single gilt fillet round sides, flat spine gilt. Vienna: F. Volke, 1835. First edition, presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the title: "À son Altesse Monsieur le Prince Dietrichstein, hommage de l’auteur." Moritz Johann Nepomuk, Prince of Dietrichstein (1775–1864), oversaw the education of the Duke of Reichstadt, Napoleon and Marie Louise’s son, from 1815 and 1831 (and was much loved by his pupil), and later served as director of the National Library of Vienna as well as head of the "Burgtheater" (the court theater). His own natural son, Sigismond Thalberg, was one of the greatest pianists of the 19th century. Dietrichstein formed one of the most important private libraries in Vienna and the books were uniformly bound in half-green sheep with green paper boards, flat spines gilt and yellow edges. This is a most interesting work in which the author recounts the history of the Imperial Library of Vienna from its foundation in 1440 and its notable acquisitions of private libraries. Balbi compares it to other leading European libraries, describes the salaries paid, and provides accounts of many private collections of books in Vienna. With much valuable statistical information on the libraries of Europe. Fine copy, signed by Prince Dietrichstein on the free front endpaper. Balbi or the Prince has made a few corrections in the text. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      . Paris, Bailliere, 1835, Gr.-4°, 11, (1), 52 pp. erklärender Text und 26 feine handcolorierte gestochene Tafeln mit ca. 400 Abbildungen, Halbleinenband der Zeit; Rücken erneuert, feines Exemplar.. Beste und umfangreichste Ausgabe dieses klassischen, frühen Abbildungswerkes ! - - (Die 1.Aufl. enthielt nur 10 Tafl.). Neben Alibert und Cazenave gehörte P.Rayer (1793-1867) zu den bekanntesten französischen Dermatologen des 19.Jahrhunderts. Rayer hat zuerst den Begriff des "Ekzems" schärfer geprägt, indem er ein akutes und ein chronisches Ekzem feststellte. Daneben legte er besonderen Nachdruck auf eine anatomische und physiologische Begründung des Systems der Dermatosen. Nach Willan war Rayer einer der besten Kenner der Geschichte der Dermatologie. - "Während die erste Auflage des Rayer'schen Hautatlas von vom Jahre 1826 noch ein Büchelein in großoktav darstellt, das auf eine Reihe von anspruchslosen, farbigen Kupfertafeln die Elemente der Hauterkrankungen, primären Effloreszenzen wie Papeln, Pusteln usw. darstellt, etwa wie man sich ein "Paukbuch" für Examen vorstellen würde, ist die 2. Auflage von 1835 bereits gänzlich verändert. Der Verfasser hat sich sichtlich bemüht, sein Werk dem "großen Alibert" und den großen Werken des Baillier'schen Verlages anzupassen- Das ursprünglich so bescheidene Heftchen ist zu einem Folioband mit 26 Kupfertafeln geworden, auf denen sich in farbigem Kuperstich 400 Abbildungen von Hautkrankheiten dargestellt finden. Der Stich ist von Ambroise TARDIEU und zwar meist farbiger Punktierstich. Es finden sich eine große Anzahl von Abbildungen, welche auch die pathologische Anatomie innerer Organe betreffen und welche in den früheren Werken kaum oder gar nicht begegnet sind, so. z.B. Blattern der Luftröhre und Milzbrand des Magens. Was die Diagnose anbelangt, so ist allerdings Hauttuberkulose, Syphilis und Carzinom oft noch nicht deutlich zu unterscheiden."

      1835. COSTUMES OF THE WORLD. Vollständige Völkergallerie in getreuen Abbildungen aller Nationen mit ausführlicher Beschreibung derselben. Four volumes. 278; 256; 136, 134; 224, 99 pp. Illustrated with 4 hand-coloured lithographic title-pages and a total of 244 hand-coloured lithographs. 8vo., 245 x 160 mm, bound in original publisher's green cloth, spine and covers stamped in gilt. Meissen: F.W. Goedsche, ca. 1835. |~||~||~||~||~| A superb set of this rare nineteenth-century survey of the costumes and customs of the world. In this copy the hand-colouring is particularly fresh. A distinguishing feature of this work is that the illustrations not only faithfully depict costumes of the world, but also that great care has been taken to set the inhabitants of the various countries in their appropriate contextual settings. The beautiful plates for this work include natural history images, ethnographic portraits, landscape views, and some technical sketches (such as a detailed sketch of an outrigger from the island of Tinian). Volume one covers Asia; volume two Africa; volume three America and Australia; and volume four Europe. Volume three includes Australian views of Port Jackson, Hobart, Sydney, the church at Parramatta, military officers exchanging gifts with an aboriginal group as well as an Australian burial party. Further, in the American section, there are plates depicting the Northern Lights down to South America with scenes of fishing among the Eskimo, a marriage in Canada, an Indian village at "Quadra-Vancouvers" island on the coast of California, Mexican gods, Brazilian hunters and a sugar-mill on a plantation in between. Similarly, the Asian volume extends from Turkey through to Unalaska in the Aleutians, with particularly fine images of Japan, China, and Kamchatka. Despite occasional minor spotting, this is a remarkably clean and brightly coloured set; virtually never found thus. The fullest and most accurate collation for this set was done for the Bavarian Staatsbibliothek of Munich. Their online catalogue offers a detailed collation; this set collates perfectly with the set in Bavaria. Colas 3027. Lipperheide 55.

        An extraordinary animal, Neither an Opossum nor a Kangaroo but having something of both

      London: T. McLean, 26 Haymarket, 1835. Lithograph measuring 447 x 305 mm., very slight foxing. "Neither an opossum nor a kangaroo..." Rare political caricature of Daniel O'Connell (1775-1847), often known as the "Liberator" or "Emancipator". The caricature is by John Doyle, a Dublin-born artist known by the pen-name "H.B." In 1827 he began producing political cartoons using the new medium of lithography, and the 1830s was the heyday of his fame. He is now also remembered as the grandfather of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.The caricature depicts a curious and frankly rather enigmatic creature, part kangaroo and part opossum (given that the first is an Australian and the second an American animal, is some broadly "new world" angle meant?). The smaller figures in the pouch are Whig MPs Lord John Russell (then leader of the Whigs in Commons), Thomas Spring Rice (an Anglo-Irish MP then on the brink of becoming Chancellor of the Exchequer) and Henry George Grey (then Secretary of War). In the 1830s all three were considered reformers particularly as regards the colonies, emigration and religious freedom, and perhaps Doyle is suggesting that they were being co-opted to O'Connell's plans.

        Galerie des artistes anglais de l'école moderne, ou collection de gravures d'après Turner, Roberts, Bonington...

      Edition of two series published in 1835 and 1836 respectively. 36 steel engravings power the first volume and the second 40 or 76 prints engraved by various English writers and imrpimées on strong paper under curve. A large vignette title and frontispiece in the second volume, both dated 1836, they could not be part of the first. Half green morocco signed Boutigny. The second volume, although using the same irons (and the same paper sheet), and out of the same workshop is in a significantly different binding (connected two years later), half marine grief, the whole being finally more aesthetic than if the color was similar. Iron romantic long gilt. Beautiful blue marbled paper. Despite a few tiny foxing to the place of serpentes and margins, very fine copy. The choice of works gives pride to major sites in Europe, there is even the Mont Saint-Michel, and universal representations, like Don Quixote. Each work is accompanied by a blurb.

        [Silhouettenalbum der sächsischen kulturtragenden Oberschicht des 19. Jahrhunderts aus dem Umfeld der Familien Bause, Löhr und Keil]. -

      [Leipzig, Dresden: um 1835-1857],. 123 Blätter mit 79 getuschten Silhouetten, davon 7 koloriert. Die meisten Silhouetten sind unten rechts mit Bleistift bezeichnet, einige sind überdies datiert. Fast alle Silhouetten sind in Passepartouts mit dreifacher Goldumrahmung montiert (Größe der Passepartouts ca. 15 x 12,5 cm). Ganzlederband mit blindgeprägten historistischen Ornamenten und goldgeprägten Doppelbordüren. 29,5 x 23,5 cm. Die vorliegenden Silhouetten zeigen einen Querschnitt der sächsischen Oberschicht aus dem engen Umfeld der Familien Bause, Löhr, Keil, Boxberg und Rayski. Vermutlich wurde das Album mit den 79 getuschten Silhouetten in den 1850er Jahren von Adelheid von Boxberg (geb. Keil; 1817-1901), der Urenkelin des Leipziger Kupferstechers Johann Friedrich Bause (1738-1814) angelegt oder zusammengestellt. Sicher ist, dass das Album aus dem Umfeld der Leipziger Familien Bause, Löhr und Keil stammt. Dafür spricht, dass die ersten nicht datierten Silhouetten des Albums von ihren Vorfahren sowohl aus der mütterlichen Linie (Bause und Löhr) als auch aus der väterlichen Linie (Keil) stammen. Die erste Silhouette des Albums zeigt "Großmutter Keil", danach folgen Darstellungen von Johann Friedrich Bause (1738-1814), seiner Ehefrau Henriette Charlotte Bause, geb. Brunner (1742-1818) und der gemeinsamen Tochter Juliane Wilhelmine (1768-1837). Juliane heiratete den kunstsinnigen Leipziger Bankier Carl Eberhard Löhr (1763-1813), mit dem sie eine Tochter Henriette (1794-1848) hatte. Diese heiratete 1814 den Leipziger Dichter Johann Georg Keil (1781-1857). Keil beschäftigte sich mit der ererbten Kunstsammlung seines Schwiegervaters Löhr und mit der Kunstsammlung des Großvaters seiner Frau, J. F. Bause. - Deren gemeinsame Tochter Adelheid Keil (1817-1901) heiratete 1841 den königlich sächsischen Oberstleutnant Ottomar Robert von Boxberg (1811-1884). Aus Adelheids engstem Familienkreis stammen etliche Abbildungen: Ihre Schwester Oswine (1829-1906) und deren Ehemann Friedrich August von Boxberg (1816-1871), ihr Bruder Adolph Keil (1822-1890), möglicherweise in memoriam ihre bereits verstorbene Schwester Klothilde (1815-1839). Weiter sind abgebildet Adelheids Kinder Alfred (1841-1896) und Kurt (1846-1913) im Kindesalter und weitere Mitglieder der Familie von Boxberg: Emil Bernhard (1808-1866), Ida (1806-1893), Philippine (geb. von Sichart), Clara (geb. von Broizem) und Hans. Ida von Boxberg gilt als erste Archäologin Sachsens, die u.a. auch in Frankreich Ausgrabungen durchführte. Eine Silhouette ihrer französischen Gönnerin Madame de la Rochelambert befindet sich im Album. - Durch die Heirat Adelheid Keils mit Ottomar von Boxberg war eine familiäre Verbindung zu Ferdinand von Rayski (1806-1890) hergestellt, aus dessen engem Umfeld ebenfalls etliche Personen dargestellt sind: Seine Mutter, seine Schwester Minna Pompila (= Mimi; 1809-1879), Mitglieder der Familien von Sichart, von Broizem, von Einsiedel, von Schönberg, von Zezschwitz. - Die Silhouetten des Albums entstanden in einer Zeit, in der in Leipzig vielfach gesellige Zirkel und Salons abgehalten wurden. Hier fand einerseits ein reger intellektueller Austausch statt, überdies wurden auch künstlerische Fähigkeiten der Mitglieder gefördert und geschult. So sind auch Silhouetten von Leipziger Kunstmäzenen und Politikern, z.B. von Johann Gottlob Quandt, dem Gründer des Dresdner Kunstvereins und großem Förderer der Nazarener um Schnorr von Carolsfeld, und seiner Ehefrau Bianca vorhanden. Weiter sind abgebildet: Heinrich Dörrien und Frau, Heinrich und Ernestine Haase, Ludwig Berti und Frau, A. von Lehmann, Frederik und Caroline von Kiel (geb. Grammann), Louise von Lengerke (geb. Wessin), Jenny Gottleber, E. Friederici, von Ampach, Graf von Holtzendorff, Luise Emilie Küstner (geb. Rothe), Fr. Otto (geb. von Bastineller), Ferdinand Otto, Auguste Jauch, Minna Meurer (geb. Küstner), Emma Preusser (geb. Gutschmidt), Gustav Ludwig Preusser, Karl von Mangoldt, Emilie von Mangoldt (geb. Reiboldt), Graf und Gräfin Hohenthal-Dölkau, Louis von Hausen, Marie von Tempsky (geb. von Broizem), Hermann von Broizem, Marie Fiedler, etc. - Zu den Familien Bause, Löhr und Keil: Wentzlaff-Eggebert (2009) und Stuhr (1995, 131ff). - Einband berieben und an den Kanten bestossen. Der vordere fliegende Vorsatz fehlt, beide Innengelenke sind etwas angebrochen. Einige Seiten haben Knicke, sind eselsohrig und sind leicht fleckig. Einige Abbildungen fehlen. Sonst und insgesamt guter Zustand, besonders die Silhouetten selbst von schönster Qualität..

        The Beauties of Modern Architecture : Illustrated By Forty-eight Original Plates Designed Expressly for This Work

      New York : D. Appleton & Co. 1835 - First edition. 4to. 2 p.l., [65]-139, [6]-[100] p., 48 plates : 28 cm. Lacking plate 18. Clean, mostly unmarked pages. Previous owners' doodles and sketches scattered throughout on blank pages, however only on blank leaves and paste-downs. Text and plates not affected. Scattered foxing throughout. A quality copy. 3/4 bound in black leather. Green cloth boards. Spine gilt, with five compartments and gilt abbreviated title. Rubbing to extremities. Corners chipped, bumped. Binding, cover tight and intact. Best copy available. Minard Lafever was an influential U.S. architect in the early 19th century. A builder of churches and houses, he helped spread the Greek revival style of architecture through his pattern books, such as this work. Several of his buildings were named National Historic Landmarks, including the Government Street Presbyterian Church in Mobile, Alabama, which was built using many of the guidelines in this book. Others were designed using various styles. Lafever's notable buildings include the First Presbyterian Church (Sag Harbor, 1844; Egyptian Revival), St. Ann and the Holy Trinity Church (Brooklyn Heights, 1847; Gothic Revival), and his Church of the Holy Apostles (Manhattan, 1848?1854; Romanesque/Italianate). Interestingly, while Lafever drew inspiration and technique from antiquity and archaeological resources, much of his work went beyond these sources, and could be called inventive, paving the way for more innovative architects.

        Autograph Letter Signed, to Charles Sumner, Esq Councellor at

      1835. Discuses Matters Relating to American Legal Publishing Appleton, John [1804-1891]. [Autograph Letter, Signed, to Charles Sumner, Esq. Counsellor at Law, Boston]. Bangor, ME, December 6, 1835. Single leaf folded to form 10" x 8" quarto bifolium. Written in ink, written in ink, addressed, franked and postmarked on verso of fourth page. Fold lines, some toning along margins, a bit of glue residue along margin, otherwise fine. Letter accompanied by a 6-1/2" x 4-1/2" image of Appleton, clipped from a periodical and mounted to a sheet of paper. * An interesting letter full of discussion, not of cases or points of law, but of various matters relating to American law publishing. Written to Charles Sumner, whose reputation as a statesman during the period of the Civil War and Reconstruction tends to obscure his early career as a distinguished lawyer, was a graduate of the Harvard Law School and a protege of Joseph Story. John Appleton graduated Bowdoin College in 1822, moved to Bangor in 1832, and eventually rose to the top of his profession as a Maine jurist, becoming chief justice of the Supreme Judicial Court of that state in 1862. His two greatest achievements were the Maine Law Reports, "perhaps the most valuable single contribution to the legal literature of his state..." and his effort to abolish "the principle of common law that a party might not be a witness in his own behalf in either civil or criminal cases. In [this]...Appleton was a confirmed disciple of Bentham...In 1856 he had the satisfaction of seeing the Maine legislature enact a law that no person should be "excused or excluded as a witness in any civil suit or proceeding at law or in equity, by reason of his interest in the event'...Eight years later this principle was extended to criminal cases" (DAB). That topic is brought up presciently on the third page of this letter. "I think there will be a move in our legislature this winter to introduce parties as witnesses but with little success as yet. It is a long time before truth can be expected to prevail, but the beginning is so[on] & a change once made in one state will most assuredly make way for change in all." The letter opens with reference to Sumner's American Jurist and Law Magazine. Appleton requests offprints of two articles he has contributed and mentions two more he

        Sur l'Homme et le développement de ses facultés, ou Essai de physique sociale.

      - Paris, Bachelier, 1835. 2 volumes in-8, demi-veau havane de l'époque, dos lisses ornés d'un jeu de filets gras dorés et au noir, pièces de titre de de tomaison de veau rouge, tranches mouchetées (petits accrocs aux coif.), (4), xii, 327 p., 2 tableaux dépliants et (4), viii, 327 p, 2 tableaux et 2 cartes dépliants. Edition originale de cet ouvrage fondateur, "one of the greatest books of the 19th century" (G. Sarton, cité par IESS, XIII, 247). Rapprochant, pour la première fois, l'analyse mathématique et la quantification des phénomènes sociaux, Quetelet pose les principes de la statistique moderne et "ouvre la porte à l'analyse quantitative raisonnée dans les sciences sociales (.). C'est le premier ouvrage théorique qui mette la statistique au service des sciences sociales" (Dupâquier, ‘Histoire de la démographie’, p. 396 et s.). "Les règles pratiques qu'il a posées, forment encore les bases des travaux de recensement modernes. On lui doit l'extension de la statistique des faits physiques au domaine des 'statistiques morales'. Dans le domaine théorique, il créé le concept d' 'Homme moyen' " (Willems, 'Dictionnaire de sociologie', p. 238). "A new era in statistics began. Quetelet impact on 19th century thinking can be compared with Descartes's in the 17th century" (DSB, XI, 237). (Kress, C.4017. DSB, XI, 236-8. IESS, XIII, 247-257). Quelques rousseurs et piqûres.

Title page and half title, 146 pp., 75 finely hand-coloured engraved plates [10 pp., 2 plates (cassidaire); 40 pp., 16 plates (casque); 16 pp., 5 plates (tonne); 12 pp., 6 plates (harpe); 151 pp., 46 plates (pourpre)]. Contemporary half cloth over marbled boards. Spines with gilt title. Marbled endpapers.l A very rare large-paper edition of this beautifully executed work of great scientific (taxonomical and nomenclatural) importance containing the descriptions and illustrations of many new and poorly-known shells. The larger quarto edition is more suitable to the fine illustrations by Dumenil, Roch, Vaillant, Kiener himself, and others, as this work was meant to be of both scientific and aesthetic value. Nissen only mentions the 8vo edition, but on original wrappers from Kiener's time the work was stated to be available in "Grand in-8°, papier grand-raisin...figures coloriees. 6 fr.", AND "Grand in-4°, papier velin satine, figures coloriees 12 [fr]", i.e. twice as expensive. Louis Charles Kiener (1799-1881) made use of the famous Delessert collection and that of the Natural History Museum of Paris, the largest and most varied repositories of conchological material on the continent. "He soon put it to good use; and in 1834 he published the first part of his 'Species'... This exquisitely illustrated iconography, started before the Sowerbys and Reeve began to issue theirs, appeared at intervals up to 1880, when eleven volumes had been completed" (Dance, A History of Shell Collecting). This volume covers several groups with generally large, and colourful species. The fine, hand-coloured plates by Maubert, Roch, De la Haye, and others are among the most beautiful illustrations ever published. Slight rubbing to the boards, a few sections in the text spotted, in particular that of pyrule, but generally rather clean; a few plates with some spots, but mostly clean. The colouring strong yet subtle, often bright, enhanced with gum arabic. Caprotti, p. 197; Dance, p. 137; Faber, pp. 64-65 (dates of publication); Nissen ZBI, 2183..

Title page and half title, 146 pp., 75 finely hand-coloured engraved plates [10 pp., 2 plates (cassidaire); 40 pp., 16 plates (casque); 16 pp., 5 plates (tonne); 12 pp., 6 plates (harpe); 151 pp., 46 plates (pourpre)]. Contemporary half cloth over marbled boards. Spines with gilt title. Marbled endpapers.l A very rare large-paper edition of this beautifully executed work of great scientific (taxonomical and nomenclatural) importance containing the descriptions and illustrations of many new and poorly-known shells. The larger quarto edition is more suitable to the fine illustrations by Duménil, Roch, Vaillant, Kiener himself, and others, as this work was meant to be of both scientific and aesthetic value. Nissen only mentions the 8vo edition, but on original wrappers from Kiener's time the work was stated to be available in "Grand in-8°, papier grand-raisin...figures coloriées. 6 fr.", AND "Grand in-4°, papier vélin satiné, figures coloriées 12 [fr]", i.e. twice as expensive. Louis Charles Kiener (1799-1881) made use of the famous Delessert collection and that of the Natural History Museum of Paris, the largest and most varied repositories of conchological material on the continent. "He soon put it to good use; and in 1834 he published the first part of his ?'Spécies?'... This exquisitely illustrated iconography, started before the Sowerbys and Reeve began to issue theirs, appeared at intervals up to 1880, when eleven volumes had been completed" (Dance, A History of Shell Collecting). This volume covers several groups with generally large, and colourful species. The fine, hand-coloured plates by Maubert, Roch, De la Haye, and others are among the most beautiful illustrations ever published. Slight rubbing to the boards, a few sections in the text spotted, in particular that of pyrule, but generally rather clean; a few plates with some spots, but mostly clean. The colouring strong yet subtle, often bright, enhanced with gum arabic. Caprotti, p. 197; Dance, p. 137; Faber, pp. 64-65 (dates of publication); Nissen ZBI, 2183.
