Large folding geological map with a cross section of southern England from Land's End to the German Ocean to the lower margin, vividly coloured according to the strata which are delineated in the large key to the upper right, dissected into 32 sections and mounted on linen, textured paper to folded end sections, label of J.C. Thackray to one side, folds into original pebbled cloth slipcase with repaired fold over tab, gilt lettered red title label to one spine. Mild wear to the slipcase, altogether a very good example of a fine map. John Thackray was archivist at the Natural History Museum. The fourth state of the first edition of this important map. The first three states were dated 18th September, the first two featuring Knipe's name plus other subtle differences. The Walkers also published a very similar but completely re-engraved map with a different title featuring the same December imprint. This subsequent map went through numerous issues through the late 1830s, with Knipe once again not being credited for his undoubtedly significant contribution.

        The History, Antiquities, and Topography of the County of Sussex

      Baxter, Lewes 1835 - We offer a nice example of this handsome two-volume set containing a note at the head of each title-page recording the fact that the books had been presented to the owner by the author. The owner's Notes read: 'Presented by the author to Edward Bennett, of Angmering and left by will to Robert Salisbury 1885'. The volumes are stoutly bound with dark brown leather spines and corners, and with marbled paper boards; title lettering in gilt on spine. Volume I has 592 pages plus index and is lavishly illustrated. It has a portrait frontispiece and 29 other full-page copperplate engravings, all with tissue guards, plus a folding map of East Sussex; there are also numerous wood engravings within the text. Volume II has 274 pages and a 90 page Appendix plus index; there is a list of subscribers (professional Gentlemen and Tradesmen) and a page of publisher's advertisements at the end of the book. The second volume has a portrait frontispiece plus 25 full-page copperplate engravings, all with tissue guards, and a folding map of West Sussex, plus numerous wood engravings in text. The condition of the set is as follows: Both volumes have been re-cased with the original leather spines laid down and the original endpapers have been strengthened at the inner hinge; the edges of the boards are somewhat rubbed and the bottom edges are shelf-worn, the marbled paper having worn away.; the corners of the boards were bumped and worn, but have been strengthened. Following careful repair as described, the binding is now sound, clean, and bright for its age; The title page of volume I was rather ragged and has been repaired around the edges, while the title-page of volume II only required a bit of conservation tape down the foredge, which has been done; there is a small area of damp-staining in volume I, which first shows on the illustration opposite page 83 and then runs throughout the remainder of the book. The semi-circular stain, measuring less than one inch at its widest, runs down from the top edge near the inner edge. The stain shows mainly on the illustration pages, but does not impact on any of the images; The illustrations are generally foxed around the margins, but not all are equally affected - occasionally foxing shows within the image; there is also some general fox-spotting within the text. Despite detailed points noted, this set remains in excellent condition overall for its age. Although the books are heavy, standard postage will apply within the UK - however extra postage will be needed for orders from overseas. Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Manuscript Mycology Field Notes Made by an Unidentified Mycologist / Botanist, Illustrating Various Medicinal, Edible, and Toxic Mushroom, in the form of Pencil Drawings. With Scientific Annotations, Classification References and Occasionally Dated.

      Switzerland, Germany, circa 1835. - Manuscript mycology field notes in the form of pencil drawings with scientific annotations, classification references, and occasionally with the month in which a living specimen was either collected or observed in its habitat, made by an unidentified mycologist / botanist, and illustrating various species of fungi - edible, medicinal, and toxic. Comprising some 240 drawings on individual trimmed leafs, each mounted thematically with others of its type, with brass pins to the inside of folio double leafs. Text is in German, with some plant names also in Latin. The lot housed in the author's original string-tied portfolio boards, heavy green cardstock with manuscript inscription to front. Very good condition. This is a most uncommon manuscript work, profusely illustrated with pencil drawings, encyclopaedic in its scope, devoted strictly to the study and classification of mushrooms, and dating to formative era medicinal mycology. Numerous specimens shown were, and still are, popular and beneficial in homeopathic treatments. The present work is contemporary to notable pioneer mycologists such as Elias Magnus Fries, Christian Hendrik Persoon, Anton de Bary, and Lewis David von Schweinitz, though its author is unknown. The notes suggest that the writer observed living fungi specimens, between the months of May and October 1830, in Switzerland, Germany, and possibly London, drawing them on the spot, and subsequently identifying and classifying them according to the works of eighteenth century botanists. Specific regions identified include Münsterlingen and Scherzingen in Switzerland, as well as St. Katharine, which may be the ancient "Royal Peculiar" jurisdiction by the Tower of London which became a civil parish until 1895. In the nineteenth century, St. Katharine's by the Tower grew to be a village, flanking the banks of the River Thames. Aiding to date the work, one of the drawings is dated 2 June 1835. The drawing of honey fungus is annotated "Agaricus melleus" as it was then classified in the Agaricus genus, and later changed to the Armillaria genus in 1871. In addition, a single leaf found at the front of the volume is watermarked with a cameo and the name of Leopold Grosherzog von Baden, who in 1830 became the Grand Duke of Baden, the papermaker's name partially seen, André B.C. von Ac. Finally, the large folded leafs to which the drawings are mounted, are forged Whatman paper, watermarked "J.B. Whatman" with the crossed mid-section to the 'W' and the letter 'B' being clear revelations of forgery. [In the early nineteenth century, Whatman watermarks were commonly forged in France, Germany and Austria, as unscrupulous papermakers sought to gain from the name and reputation of Whatman.] The manuscript notes make frequent reference to "Schaeff." referring to Jacob Christian Schaeffer (1718-1790) who was an authoritative eighteenth century mycologist in Germany.

        Géométrie stéréographique, ou reliefs des polyèdres, pour faciliter l'étude des corps

      Paris, L'auteur, 1835, in-8, IV-44 pages et 25 planches, soit 24 sur carton avec figures pré-découpées et 1 pl. depl, broché, couverture imprimée de l'éditeur, couvertures renforcées et dos factice, titre à l'encre en tête du dos, Première adaptation française, rare, de deux textes anglais de Cowley, parus à Londres respectivement en 1758 et 1765-1766 sous les titres "An appendix to Euclid's elements [...] in wich the Doctrine of Solids, is Illustrated, and Rendered Easy", et "The theory of Perspective Demonstrated". La méthode de Cowley est unique dans l'histoire des livres de perspective car elle n'avait pour but de présenter des constructions de vues de perspective, mais de familiariser ses lecteurs (un public de formation militaire, puisqu'il était professeur de mathématiques à la "Royal Military Academy" de Wollwich) à la géométrie tri-dimensionnelle, autrement dit familiariser ses élèves à l'application de la théorie des plans à la perspective. Pour ce faire, il fit graver sur des cartons forts des formes géométriques pré-découpées pouvant se replier et ainsi former en relief les différents corps solides euclidiens réguliers ou irréguliers. Marie, à l'instar de Cowley, était mathématicien et cartographe. Son édition française compte 24 planches d'éléments mobiles servant à montrer les volumes des cinq polyèdres selon des calculs ou une technique représentation stéréographiques des corps. Cachet de l'Institut Catholique de Paris. Couverture renforcées et dos factice, petit manque en première de couverture ; néanmoins, exemplaire propre, complet de tous ses éléments mobiles. Andersen, The Geometry of an art, p. 570-571 ; Vagnetti, EIVb47.

      Huiskamp O13-O15 (this copy?); NCC (3 copies of the separate volumes); Saakes X, p. 463. Very rare first and only edition of (the Dutch translation?) of a richly illustrated zoological children's book. The book is divided into three parts: mammals, birds and fishes, making a broad selection of animals from apes to whales, from vultures to pelicans and from perches to rays. The latter parts not only describes the fishes, but also discusses fishery. Huiskamp notes it's translated from the English by W.J. Olivier, but no original is known and his information is not found elsewhere. W.J. Olivier has done several other very free translations, so the present could be modelled after Bewick, with new engravings. The few other copies located are all listed under their part titles, which seem to suggest they don't include the general title-page.With the 19th-century owner's inscription and embossed library stamp of Daniël Boissevain. Some occasional spots and faint foxing, otherwise in very good condition. Slightly rubbed along the spine, one hinges partly cracked, and the title-label worn; the binding otherwise good.

        Manuscript Journal of an Apothecary and Physician Carl Daniel Schwila of Breslau.

      Breslau, Lower Silesia, Germany, now Wroclaw, 1835. This manuscript journal contains numerous medicinal recipes, others for household use including a mouse poison, as well as very detailed notes from lectures and references to the works of notable physicians from Germany, France and England. Text is in German. 8vo. 357 in manuscript, plus 3 additional leafs placed within, penned in three distinct hands. First leaf bears the blind stamp of "Apotheke in Kösel - R. Schliwa" Deteriorated binding which lacks rear board and spine, age-toning throughout, indication of burrowing to a few leaves, otherwise in good condition, an abundant and fascinating journal of pharmaceutical interest. Contained in an archival clam shell box for extra protection. An extensive journal of Victorian era medical formulae compiled and utilized by an apothecary and physician, over some twenty-five years, its entries feature numerous recipes for treatment, in the form of ingestible liquid prescriptions, tinctures, syrups, tonics, teas, compounds, pills, and possibly plasters. With at least three contributors, Dr. Schwila and his partners or protégés (possibly family), the volume was likely the cornerstone reference work of a family business in Kosel. [Kosel, known historically as Koslev, is a municipality in the district of Rendsburg-Eckernförde, in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.] This volume is a fine elucidation of pharmaceutical techniques, discoveries, and evolving theories in medicine during mid-nineteenth century, frequently drawing on notable physicians and surgeons, apothecaries, leading medical educators, and their revolutionary works. In an ongoing pursuit to improve remedies and medical procedures, Schwila evidently kept abreast of the most recent findings and applications across Western Europe, he also performed his own experiments. An eight-page section is attributed to "Runge" at its conclusion, quite likely referring to German chemist Friedlieb Ferdinand Runge (1795-1867) who identified the mydriatic effects of the belladonna (deadly nightshade) extract, and who identified caffeine in the coffee plant. Other contemporaries in his field, mentioned here - homeopath Dr. George von Schmidt (1820-1882) who published a treatise on cholera titled "Das Choleragift" in 1867, apothecary Keller, apothecary Koldewey ein Isselburg, Dr. Vogel, Dr. Wittke zu Rummelsburg, Herr A. Lepowitz. English surgeon Thomas Turner (1793-1873), known primarily for his involvement in developing medical education outside its then traditional base of London, is also mentioned with the date of 1826, possibly in relation to his work as surgeon to the Deaf and Dumb Institution. The recipes are equally fascinating, with innumerable natural remedy treatments for human ailments, comprised mainly of plant extracts, herbs and minerals. . Manuscript.

        A sketch of the structure of the Eastern Alps; with sections through the newer formations on the northern flanks of the chain, and through the tertiary deposits of Styria etc.

      1835 - Geological Society of London. 1835. 4to. Recently bound on cream cloth-backed paper-covered boards; pp. 301 - 420, 1 folding hand-coloured map, 2 folding plates (1 hand-coloured), 3 other plates; very good indeed. Offprint from the Transactions of the Geological Society of London. This is the most substantial work to arise from Sedgwick and Murchison's trip to Alps in in 1829, which was itself one of the most extensive collaborations of their ill-fated friendship. This was an important paper in that it showed the extent of the Alpine limestone, which Sedgwick was able to correlate with strata in northeastern England, and the whole thrust of their argument is to do with stratigraphical continuity. Their main concern is to bridge the apparent faunal gap between secondary and tertiary strata, a concern that would later lead them to identify their rival systems. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Poetical Romances of Tristan;Tristan: Recueil de ce qui Reste des Poëms Relatifs a Ses Aventures

      Guillaume Pickering, Londres 1835 - 2 volumes. 12mo. Illustrated with lithographs of the manuscripts, some with initials colored by hand in red and blue. Title page in Volume 1 in both English and French. Publisher's original cloth in a small sand grain design. This is clearly Winterbottom's Type 'M' (Tomlinson). Krupp (p.30) notes this as San1, but without a Winterbottom cross-reference. She ascribes an appearance date of 1850 for this early design; to find it on books published in 1835 is a treat. That it would appear on a Pickering work should be no surprise. Pickering started experimenting with bookcloth as early as 1823 through his binder, Archibald Leighton, who was responsible for many innovations in the design and use of early bookcloth. The text constitutes mainly the remains of Thomas of Britain's Tristan Romance, composed in the 12th and 13th centuries in Norman French and Greek, here edited and rendered in the originals by Fr. Michel. This is a very good set with only light signs of age and wear. Fairly scarce. A third volume with additional Tristan fragments was issued in 1839, not present her. There is an old note on the front free endpaper indicating that this is one of 250 copies, but we have not been able to confirm that limitation. This is the first printed edition of Thomas of Britain. It dates from about 1170, and includes Tristan's marriage and the Hall of Statues, his return to Cornwall, and the lovers' deaths, using the motif of the sails. Reiss, Reiss & Taylor, Nrs. 930 and 956. A translation into English was issued by Pickering the same year. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Géométrie stéréographique, ou reliefs des polyèdres, pour faciliter l'étude des corps

      Paris, L'auteur, Giroux, Bachelier, Cabilian-Goeury er Hachette, 1835, in-8, de IV, 44 pages et 25 planches dont 24 sur carton avec figures pré-découpées, demi-chagrin rouge du XIXe siècle , premier plat portant l'ex-libris de l'école La Martinière à Lyon, Première adaptation française, rare, de deux textes anglais de Cowley, parus à Londres respectivement en 1758 et 1765-1766 sous les titres "An appendix to Euclid's elements [...] in wich the doctrine of solids, is illustrated, and rendered easy", et "The theory of perspective demonstrated". La méthode de Cowley est unique dans l'histoire des livres de perspective car elle n'avait pour but de présenter des constructions de vues de perspective, mais de familiariser ses lecteurs (un public de formation militaire, puisqu'il était professeur de mathématiques à la "Royal Military Academy" de Wollwich) à la géométrie tri-dimensionnelle, autrement dit familiariser ses élèves à l'application de la théorie des plans à la perspective. Pour ce faire, il fit graver sur des cartons forts des formes géométriques pré-découpées pouvant se replier et ainsi former en relief les différents corps solides euclidiens réguliers ou irréguliers. Marie, à l'instar de Cowley, était mathématicien et cartographe. Son édition française compte 24 planches d'éléments mobiles servant à montrer les volumes des cinq polyèdres selon des calculs ou une technique représentation stéréographiques des corps. Bon exemplaire, à l'intérieur propre, complet de tous ses éléments mobiles, et porant bien la signature de Marie au verso de la page de titre. Andersen, The Geometry of an art, p. 570-571 ; Vagnetti, EIVb47.
