        Horti medici Amstelaedamensis plantarum usualium catalogus.Amsterdam, [1724]. 12mo. With engraved frontispiece by Jan Goeree showing the gates to the Hortus Medicus and a woodcut Amsterdam coat of arms on the title-page. 18th-century boards covered with red paste-paper.

      - Pritzel 1835; STCN (7 copies); D.O. Wijnands, Botany of the Commelins, 1983, p. 13. Third enlarged edition of a catalogue of medicinal plants at the Hortus Medicus in Amsterdam, containing 441 numbered descriptions. It is the last of three editions produced by Commelin (1667/68-1731), whose uncle Jan Commelin had been the garden's botanist to his death in 1692. Caspar was appointed to the same post in 1695 and professor of botany in 1706. The title-page is undated, but the preliminaries contain both Commelin's 1698 note to the reader from the first edition and his new note to the reader dated 15 March 1724 for the present edition. The garden's new entry gate was built in 1715 and Goeree engraved the present frontispiece showing it for the second edition of Commelin's catalogue, published in that year. This work should not be confused with Commelin's Hortus medici Amstelodamensis plantae rariores et exoticae, 1706, a supplement to his uncle's Hortus medici Amstelodamensis rariorum tam orientalis, 1697-1701.With library stamp. Lacking the second of the 2 final blank leaves. In good condition. Most extensive edition of Commelin's catalogue of medicinal plants in the Amsterdam botanical garden. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Histoire naturelle générale et particulière de tous les genres de coquilles univalves marines a l'état vivant et fossile, publiée par monographies ou description et classification méthodique de toutes les espèces connues jusqu à ce jour, représentées en couleur avec la figure et l'anatomie d'un assez grand nombre de mollusques nouvellement découverts.

      Paris, privately published, 1835. Folio (44.0 x 30.5 cm). 13 fine lithographic plates by Prêtre, finely hand-coloured. Original printed wrappers.l This large-paper publication was the beginning of what was to be a complete treatise on the marine gastropods of the world. It deals with members of the family Columbellidae. Apparently, Pierre Louis Duclos (d. 1853) was fond of colourful, shiny shells, as in 1840 (five years later) he also published a part on the Olividae and Olivellidae. This was all that was published. Later, Duclos contributed to Chenu's, "Illustrations conchyliologiques ou description et figures de toutes les coquilles connues vivantes et fossiles..." series, which had an even grander scope but was also never completed. Again, Duclos treated the more glossy and colourful genera, such as Strombus, and Conus. The first names of Duclos were a mystery for many years until the Californian malacologist Scott Jordan discovered them in a letter. His year of birth is still unknown. The plates, by Prêtre, are among the best produced in the 19th century, in their accuracy of form and colour. A very good, complete copy of this first part, almost without foxing. Some dampstaining to lower margin of a few plates, not affecting the figures. The chipped wrappers are those of the genus Oliva, corrected in an old hand. Caprotti, p. 187; Nissen ZBI, 1170.

        Spectacle Asiatique Danse et Voltige sur la Corde avec et sans Balancier

      Paris, 1835. A tightrope toy, hand-colored, that includes a functional tightrope assemblage, an elaborate stage, two kneeling attendants, and eight acrobats, of which seven are movable. The stage is made of two parts: a raised stage floor, and a five-panel stage background that surrounds the floor on three sides and opens to face the audience. The backdrop is decorated like a stone veranda with hanging red curtains, parted to show a landscape of lush greenery. Two black guards stand at attention, and decorative vases line the railings. Additional pieces of curling masonry bedecked with flowers and feathers can be inserted seamlessly into slots at the top of the stage background. The tightrope extends from the back panel towards the audience; it then runs through a wooden support to keep it raised and level, and is secured by a peg that fits into a hole at the base of the stage floor. An invisible second string runs across the top of the stage from left to right with a loop hanging above the tightrope. The acrobats are placed with their head in the loop so they float, "balanced" on the tightrope. The acrobatic figures include two French dancers, two Chinese dancers, a sylph, a dwarf clown, and a Hindu bayadère with a billowing scarf. All of these acrobats are movable. Like jumping jacks, pulling down on a string raises their legs so they jump and dance. The sylph, dwarf, and bayadère also move their arms, creating a truly lively animation. The set also comes with a self-balancing spirit, le génie, who can stand on the tightrope on her tip-toes. When performing the show for the audience, le génie would be placed on the tightrope first to show that the dancers would balance unaided, enhancing the illusion that the leaping acrobats were real. The final two figures are kneeling Ethiopian slaves who fit into slots on the stage floor near the rope, gazing up at the performers above them. The whole set breaks down for storage, and is housed in the original portfolio decorated with patterned paper and a paper title label. A convenient four-flap enclosure on the inside of the back cover holds the figures. An instruction sheet is included which names the acrobats and describes the secret of the game. This interesting set was created over the summer of 1835 by J. Pintard and Bénard in Paris (Bibliographie de la France). It was advertised for sale by La Maison Aubert in the early 1840s. One interior support from the stage detached but present, slight bending to le génie so she no longer balances unaided, occasional reinforcement to backs, and expected starting and chipping near stage joints and to folder, else a beautiful and complete set in near fine condition.

        57 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Zus. 270 S., 8 u. Gr.-8. Der in Hamburg geborene Diplomat und Politiker hatte einen spanischen Vater und eine deutsche Mutter. Er war als spanischer Gesandter in Deutschland und Österreich tätig und war spanischer Staatsminister in den Jahren 1835 und 1853. Lopez de la Torre Ayllon, Vater der Bernardina Lopez de la Torre Ayllon y Jaspe (1847-1924), starb 1875 in Madrid. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. - Beiliegend 40 Briefe von Ayllons Tochter Bernardina sowie 28 Briefe von Louise Ayllon. -

        THE STUDENT: A SERIES OF PAPERS, by the Author of "Eugene Aram," "England and the English," &c. &c. ..

      London: Saunders and Otley, Conduit Street, 1835.. 12mo, two volumes: pp. [iii-vii] viii-xi [xii-xiv] [1-3] 4-335 [336: blank]; [iii-v] vi-viii [1-3] 4-361 [362: blank] [363-364: ads], lacks the half title leaves and R2 , the advertising leaf in volume two, contemporary brown three-quarter leather and marbled boards, spine panels tooled in gold, black leather title and number pieces, gray endpapers. First UK and first expanded edition. A miscellany of essays and fiction, including two important pieces of occult fiction: "Monos and Daimonos" and "The Tale of Kosem Kesamim, the Magician," which Wolff notes is "Bulwer's earliest piece of occult fiction and important as a forerunner of ZANONI ..." (Wolff 961b). Both stories display that semi-allegorical style that recurs in much of his occult fiction. Another story, "The Choice of Phylias," is also supernatural. Bleiler states that "Manuscript Found in a Madhouse" is included in this collection, but it is definitely not present in this edition. The story did appear in an earlier American edition, CONVERSATIONS WITH AN AMBITIOUS STUDENT IN ILL HEALTH: WITH OTHER PIECES (New-York: Printed and Published by J. & J. Harper, 1832), which presented some but not all of the material in this present edition. Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 302. Block, The English Novel 1740-1850, p. 147. Sadleir 445. Wolff 961a. Owner's signature dated 1872 on the front paste-downs. Leather worn, boards rubbed, scattered foxing to text, a very good copy. (#148335)

        Mit hoher Bewilligung gibt Franz Schatzel, aus der Stadt Steyer, sich die Ehre, sein ganz neu errichtetes, hier noch nie gesehenes optisches Kunst-Kabinet mit Wachsfiguren zur Schau zu bieten, welches bisher noch in allen Orten, wo er dasselbe produzirte, mit allgemeinem Beifalle beehrt wurde. (.) Der Schauplatz ist in der grünen Bude und ist offen von Morgens 7 bis Abends 9 Uhr. Des Nachtheils an den Figuren wegen wird höflichst ersucht, im Kabinete nicht Tabak zu rauchen."

      Wohl Steyr, (nach 1835). - 1 einseitig bedruckter Bogen, Mit zentralem Holzschnittporträt (12 cm x 9,5 cm). 49 x 38 cm Plakat stockfleckig und mit Spuren einer zweifachen Faltung (in den Knickfalten teils gebräunt); an drei Stellen mit kleinen, professionell hinterlegten, Einrissen - bei einem Einriss auch mit winzigem Ausriss (minimaler Buchstabenverlust); mit einigen sehr schwachen Wasserflecken (den Gesamteindruck nur unwesentlich beeinträchtigend); Knickspur in der oberen Ecke (außerhalb des Textes); etwas angerändert; unbeschnitten. Text und Bild sind von einer ornamentalen Holzschnittbordüre umgeben (ca. 1 cm breit); das Holzschnittportrait zeigt Hans von Staininger aus Braunau (gest. 1567), der durch einen bis zum Boden reichenden Bart Aufmerksamkeit erregte; neben dem Holzschnitt mit Kurzbeschreibungen der 14 Figuren bzw.

        Doctor

      1835. (SOUTHEY, Robert). The Doctor, &c. London: Longman et al., 1835-47. Seven volumes. Octavo, later three-quarter green morocco, marbled boards, endpapers and top edges. $1600.Second edition of Southey's The Doctor, best known for containing the first appearance in print of “The Three Bears.” “Any text of the story published before 1850 is a rare and desirable possession” (Quayle, 73).The Doctor was the last major work by this poet laureate. “(Southey's) prose style has long been regarded as masterly in its ease and clarity. These qualities are best seen in… the anonymously published seven-volume The Doctor (1834-47), a fantastic, rambling miscellany packed with comments, quotations, and anecdotes” (Kuiper, 1055). “The Three Bears” appears in Vol. IV on page. 318; this version with a “Little Old Woman” instead of Goldilocks. Interiors generally clean with only occasional minor soiling. A lovely copy of this rare set, handsomely bound.

        Mémoire pour servir à l'histoire de la société polie en France Cet ouvrage ne sera pas mis en vente.

      Paris, Typo. Firmin Didot frères, 1835, in 8°, de 2ff. II-484pp., demi-veau brun époque, dos lisse à filets dorés, bel exemplaire. Edition originale non mise dans le commerce, et tirée à très petit nombre. Cet Avocat et conseiller au parlement de Metz, fut député aux Etats Généraux, puis ministre des Finances de Joseph Bonaparte à Naples en 1806, et conseiller d'État et sénateur sous l'Empire. Ami des philosophes et professeur d'économie politique, il rédigea cette histoire de l'hôtel de Rambouillet sous le titre de "Mémoire pour servir l'histoire de la société polie en France". C'est une histoire de la bonne société du XVIIe siècle. Selon lui Mme de Rambouillet aurait refondé la société polie en France. Ce livre eut une influence considérable, en particulier auprès de Sainte-Beuve et Victor Cousin, car il remettait le XVIIe siècle à l'honneur, et montrait l'importance sociale de la conversation et le rôle qui jouent les femmes. ¶ Vicaire VI.1166 - Quérard Fr. litt.

        Narrative of a Second Voyage in Search of a North-West Passage, and of a Residence in the Arctic Regions During the Years 1829, 1830, 1831, 1832, 1833

      London: A.W. Webster, 1835. Two volumes, quarto. Errata leaf. Twenty-nine plates (one with two images) including frontispiece, nine of which in color (three being mezzotints with hand coloring). Modern cloth-backed boards, printed paper spine labels, untrimmed. After Ross's disastrous voyage of 1818, the Admiralty refused to allow him to lead another Arctic expedition until 1829. With assistance from gin magnate Felix Booth and with contributions by Ross himself, he commanded the steam vessel Victory with his nephew James Clark Ross as second in charge. In searching for a passage south from Regent's inlet, the Victory was stopped by ice, and Ross and his men spent the winter of 1829-1830 in Felix harbor. In the summer of 1830, the ship made some progress and got a few miles further south to winter in Victoria harbor. But there it remained stuck in the ice, and in May 1832 was abandoned. Ross and his men made their way to Fury Beach, where they passed yet another winter in a hut built from the wreck of the Fury and managed to survive by eating an Inuit diet. In the summer of 1833, they succeeded in reaching Ross's old ship, the Isabella, in Lancaster Sound and used it to return to England. The voyage, remarkable for the length of time spent in the ice, yielded much in the way of scientific observations, including information on natural history, meteorology, navigation, and ethnology. James Clark Ross was also able to discover the Magnetic North Pole. Abbey Travel 636; Arctic Bibliography 14866; Field 1321; Hill 1490; Lande 1426; NMM 850; Sabin 73381; Staton & Tremaine/TPL 1808.

        Unrecorded English Manuscript Translation of Ahmet Resmî Efendi's Narrative "Viyana Sefaretnamesi" .

      England, circa 1835 - 8vo. 19 pages, plus introduction, penned on 6 string-tied double leafs bearing the watermark 'Cansell 1834.' Item measures approximately 10,5 x 17,5 cm. Slight age-toning, otherwise in very good condition. Unrecorded English manuscript translation of Ahmet Resmî Efendi's lesser known narrative "Viyana Sefaretnamesi" in which he described his diplomatic embassy to Vienna during the Seven Years' War. This is an abridged work, providing a summary of the journey from Istanbul to Vienna in 1757, and most importantly, his official meeting with Francis I, Holy Roman Emperor, King of Germany. The English writer includes footnotes on some Ottoman custom and terminology, drawing these from the work of Austrian diplomat and orientalist Joseph von Hammer-Purgstall (1774-1856) who, at around this same time, had translated the earlier Sefâretnâme of Evliya Efendi ito English. Ahmet Resmî Efendi's report "Viyana Sefaretnamesi" was written immediately upon his return to Istanbul from Vienna in 1758. It should not be confused with his more commonly known account of his subsequent embassy to Berlin in 1763-1764, "Sefaretnâme-yi-Prusya". Both of the works, on the Vienna and Berlin embassies, were translated into German in 1809 by celebrated Austrian diplomat and orientalist Joseph von Hammer-Purgstall (1774-1856), who is mentioned in the writer's prefatory notes. [In 1834 Von Hammer also published an English translation of the earlier Seyahatname of Evliya Efendi, covering the first two volumes on Constantinople and Anatolia. Von Hammer titled his translation "Evliya Efendi." To this day, there is no English translation of the entire Seyahatname, only of various parts, Von Hammer's being the longest single English translation.] Sefâretnâme, literally "the book of embassy", was a genre of Turkish literature which was closely related to seyahatname which means "the book of travels", but was specific to the recounting of journeys and experiences of an Ottoman ambassador in a foreign land and capital, usually in Europe. Sefâretnâme were edited by their authors with a view to their presentation to the Sultan and to his high administration, thus also bearing a semi-official character, their objective being to make them "feel" the foreign country in question, as much as informing on it. For this reason, and for the literary qualities that were sought in order to attain their objective, they remain of lasting interest. An Ottoman embassy was despatched to the royal court of Vienna in late 1757, to formally announce the accession of Sultan Mustafa III to the throne, Ahmed Resmî being appointed to the task of presenting the Imperial news to Emperor and King Francis I. It was customary at the time to send emissaries to friendly Christian states, to make such announcements. Simultaneous to Ahmet Resmi's embassy to Vienna, embassies were also sent to Poland and Russia. With an entourage of over sixty men, including court officials, Ahmet Resmi departed on 2 December 1757. The envoy consisted of the Commander of the Palace Guard, the keeper of the Seal, the Guardian of the Treasury, two Sergeant-at-Arms, the Secretary of the Embassy, an imam, an interpreter, a ceremonial sword-bearer, some thirty men of the elite Janissary Palace Guards, and twenty-two servants. The trip to Vienna took 3 months, after forty days arriving in Belgrade, where, onboard a vessel on the Sava river on 25 January 1758, he was introduced by the Minister of Finance to his Austrian guide. On the outskirts of Vienna, three days were spent resting and making arrangements for his entrance into the city. Finally, on 13 March 1758, Ahmet Resmi and his retinue proceeded into Vienna, where at a bridge, they were met by interpreter and a cavalry regiment who escorted them all to Leopoldstat, a residence for ambassadors. On 19 April the Turkish ambassador was taken to the palace in the Emperor's carriage, with quite a ceremony, as described in the present manuscript. He was first received by Fra

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

      1835 - de IV, 44 pages et 25 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.

Pictorial title and head-pieces by Porret. Moderate foxing, otherwise very good and crisp, in an attractive Romantic era binding. First edition, ordinary issue. Vicaire and Carteret report that a few copies were printed on variously tinted papers. The second collection of poems by Tastu (1798 - 1885), supplementing her 1826 debut publication that contributed to the bankruptcy of her husband's printing concern. Accompanied by a manuscript draft, in ink, signed, of Tastu's translation of Felicia Hemans's poem "The Graves of a Household," which is printed in this collection under the title "Les Tombeaux d'une Famille." The manuscript (32 lines, on recto and verso of one panel of a folded quarto sheet) bears two revisions, and the full title and identification of the poem as a translation of Hemens's poem. Also present is a one-page a.l.s. from Tastu to "Monsieur Aimé-Martin," dated simply "Dimanche Matin," (11 lines, on recto of one panel of a folded octavo sheet, signed in full, and addressed on the conjugate blank). Although her poetry is now viewed as sentimental, Saint-Beuve, among others, considered her among the leading female poets of her age. Her first poems appeared when she was only fifteen, and attracted the attention of Shelley, who corresponded with her. Her translation of ROBINSON CRUSOE was published the same year. VICAIRE VII:761. CARTERET II:385.
