        Seimi kaiso [trans.: Elements of Experimental Chemistry]. Trans. by Yoan Udagawa

      14 finely detailed full-page woodcuts, all heightened in grey, blue, and/or brown wash (one heightened with silver). 21 vols. 8vo, orig. patterned embossed wrappers, orig. block printed title label on upper covers, new stitching. Tokyo: 1837-45-47. First edition in Japanese of William Henry's The Elements of Experimental Chemistry, which first appeared in English as An Epitome of Chemistry (London: 1801). It was a very successful book with numerous revised and enlarged editions; by the sixth edition of 1810, the Epitome… changed its name to The Elements… which also enjoyed numerous editions and translations. "Seimi Kaiso plays an important role in the remarkable story of Western scientific influences in Japan. When this work first appeared in 1837, Japan had been almost completely isolated from the larger world for two centuries. The Japanese were not allowed to travel abroad, and only the Chinese and the Dutch were permitted to enter Japan. From about 1720, however, a group of Japanese scholars began studying and translating Dutch scientific literature that reported achievements taking place throughout Europe. Known in Japanese as the Rangakusha, meaning 'scholars of the Dutch school,' this group made certain that the advances of modern scientific knowledge would not elude Japan… "Udagawa Yoan, (1797-1846), a Rangakusha and younger member of the learned Udagawa family, is said to have introduced chemistry into Japan with Seimi Kaiso. It was based on a Dutch translation of William Henry's popular book, first published in 1800 [sic] as An Epitome of Chemistry and later as The Elements of Experimental Chemistry. Re-working the Dutch text into Japanese, however, was much more than mere translation. Yoan had to develop new terminology to describe chemical substances and processes, expanding the Japanese vocabulary of chemistry as he deepened his own understanding of the science."-from the Corning Museum of Glass's website. This work describes for the first time in detail the revolutionary findings and theories of Lavoisier in Japan. Udagawa coined a number of scientific terms which are still in current use in Japan, including those for "oxygen," "hydrogen," "nitrogen," "carbon," "platinum," "oxidation," "reduction," "saturation," "dissolution," "analysis," "element," etc. Henry (1774-1836), studied under Black at Edinburgh University and became a partner in his father's chemical works. He lectured on chemistry in London. The illustrations are particularly well wood-engraved. A particularly fine set. The final three volumes - Gaihen [trans.: Supplement] - are dated 1847. ❧ D.S.B., VI, pp. 284-86.

        Illustrations of Exotic Entomology, Containing Upwards of Six Hundred and Fifty Figures and Descriptions of Figures Foreign Insects, Interspersed with Remarks and Reflections on Their Nature and Properties

      London: Henry G. Bohn, 1837. New Edition" (2nd.) of the original 1770-1787 publication "brought down to the present state of the science with the systematic character of each species, synonyms, indexes, and other additional matter. three-quarter brown morocco lettered in gilt over dark green cloth covered boards. Some rubbing to covers, front endpapers of volume I cracked over hinge, occasional minor foxing on text pages, plates clean and crisp and colours strong. Quarto. Three volumes Profusely illustrated with 150 hand coloured plates (all present) Considered the better and more accurate edition Dru Drury (1725–1804) was a silversmith with a passion for entomology. His profitable business enabled him to spend significant amounts of money on his hobby and over a thirty year period he built up a famous collection of over 11,000 insect specimens. As well as collecting English insects, he acquired more "exotic" samples by persuading the officers of ships sailing to other continents and other travellers to collect insects on his behalf; for this they were paid 6d per insect 'whatever the size'. Illustrations of natural history was published in three parts between 1770 and 1782. The illustrations were based on specimens in his collection. The hand-coloured copperplate engravings were beautifully executed by Moses Harris; he was responsible for illustrating several books of natural history by various authors, as well as his own works. Drury assures the reader in the preface that 'the utmost care and nicety has been observed, both in the outlines, and engraving. Nothing is strained, or carried beyond the bounds nature has set'. His descriptions often lack scientific precision; but his notices of the libellulidæ and of the insects of Sierra Leone are specially valuable. Some of his papers came into Mr. Westwood's hands. Linnæus, Kirby, and Fabricius each held Drury in high estimation, and named insects after him. Together with Pallas, the younger Linnæus, and Haworth, they were wont to correspond with him. His ‘Exotic Entomology’ was in part translated into German, and annotated by G. W. F. Panzer, 1785[Nissen 1160].

        Viue de port de Sevastopol et de la Flotte de la mer Noire. View of the port of Sebastopol and the Russian Imperial Fleet.

      1837 - Original drawing in ink on 4 sheets of paper joint together, mounted, framed and glazed. Dimensions of the panorama: 22 x 130 cm. Overall dimensions: 35.5 x 145 cm. Large original drawing showing the departure of the Russian Imperial Fleet from the port of Sebastopol on the Black Sea on 22 August 1837. This is a rare contemporary full view of the bay and the port in its heyday, before the dramatic changes brought by the Crimean War in 1853-56. It was at the time undergoing a rapid development under the direction of the Commander of the Ports of the Black Sea, Admiral M.P. Lazarev. The drawing was lithographed after the French artist Auguste Raffet (1804-60) and published under No. 48 in the famous work by Anatole Demidoff "Voyage dans la Russie meridionale et la Crimee, par la Hongrie, la Valachie et la Moldavie" in 1848. The lithographed plate follows the sketch in every detail, additionally showing a close-up of a pasture field and a road on the foreground. Raffet accompanied Count Anatoliy Nikolaevich Demidov, Prince of San Donato (1812-70) on his expedition to Ukraine and Crimea, the Russian territorial acquisitions in the south, that he launched in 1837 at his own expense. The trip lasted a little over four months during which time Raffet produced numerous sketches. He quickly decided to publish them, discussing it with the lithographers Gihault brothers on his return to France. The account was first published in 1840 in a reduced format and with only 27 plates, without this view of Sebastopol. The full-scope publication was delayed by ten years, due to the artist's perfectionism. The results were astonishing: Raffet's images are a fascinating depiction of the landscape and architecture of a region little known to western Europeans at that time.

SECONDA EDIZIONE INTERAMENTE RIVISTA ED AMPLIATA della Bibbia protestante del Diodati. A questa nuova edizione, che riflette il mutato spirito die tempi (dopo il massacro della Valtellina del 1620 era ormai chiaro che l'Italia non poteva più essere riformata), fu aggiunto un ampio commento, dei sommari ai capitoli e la versione in versi dei Salmi che Diodati aveva pubblicato nel 1631 (I Sacri Salmi messi in rime italiane). "Questa seconda edizione... è una versione dell'età matura che costituisce una vera e propria opera letteraria;... il rispetto degli originali, evidenziato dall'accorgimento di segnalare in corsivo le proprie aggiunte, non impedisce al Diodati di usare tutta la ricchezza che la lingua italiana aveva maturato nella fioritura letteraria dei secoli precedenti, dimostrando grande autonomia e padronanza della lingua... Le non poche varianti tra l'edizione del 1607 e quella del 1641 attestano un maggior approfondimento del testo ebraico e la conoscenza di molti sussidi grammaticali ed esegetici, oltre a una maggior cura dello stile... L'ampliamento dell'apparato esegetico dimostra anche il cambiamento del pubblico cui si rivolgeva la sua traduzione: l'edizione del 1641 ha soprattutto un intento catechetico ed è rivolta alle famiglie della Chiesa italiana di Ginevra e a tutte le comunità riformate sparse per il mondo" (I. Zatelli, a cura di, La Bibbia a Stampa da Gutenberg a Bodoni, 1991, Firenze, nr. 132). Il Diodati, membro di una importante famiglia calvinista ginevrina originaria di Lucca, fu professore di teologia e di lingua ebraica a Ginevra. La sua fama è soprattutto legata alla traduzione italiana delle Sacre Scritture (1607 e successive revisioni), che fu tradotta anche in francese nel 1644, condotta direttamente sulle lingue originali. Amico di John Milton e di Paolo Sarpi, compì una missione a Venezia; in quell'occasione sollecitò il distacco dalla Chiesa di Roma e l'adesione al protestantesimo. La sua importantissima versione italiana, aspramente contrastata nei secoli dai cattolici, fu largamente letta ed ammirata dai Valdesi, soprattutto quelli stanziati nelle valli del Piemonte. La traduzione del Diodati rimase in vigore nella Chiesa Valdese sino al 1924, quando fu fatta una revisione rimasta poi la versione ufficiale delle Chiese evangeliche italiane. Per l'importanza che ricoprì nel corso dei secoli e per i pregi di stile, essa viene non infondatamente accostata alla Bibbia inglese di Re Giacomo e alla Bibbia tedesca di Lutero. Darlow e Moule, 5600 ("His pure Italian style is not vitiated by French influence"); N. Bingen, Philausone (1500-1660), nr. 133..

        Histoire de Gil Blas de Santillane

      Paris, Librairie de A. Pougin, 1837. Duodecimo, three volumes bound as one, viii, 233; iv, 220 and iv, 236 pages. Contemporary half calf and marbled papered boards; leather slightly rubbed and bumped, with slight wear to the corners and light tidemarks to the leather on the panels near the spine; marbled paper heavily rubbed and a little marked; light waterstain to the top lefthand corner throughout the book, and to the top righthand corner of the front half, staining the leading edge a little; a very good copy. Inscribed in ink on an early binder's blank 'Bought at the sale / of Governor Gawler's effects / May 27, 1841. J F'. Unfortunately it is not James Hurtle Fisher - we have checked! There are approximately 40 male JFs in the 1841 South Australian census (and Fisher is not listed), and easily half as many women, so we leave the detective work to those with more spare time. A name on both the pastedown and front flyleaf has been blacked out at a very early stage; we suspect underneath the black ink it reads 'George Gawler' but again we leave the forensics to the experts. One thing we can say is that when Colonel George Gawler (1795-1869) was summarily dismissed from his post as South Australia's second governor on 11 May 1841 when Captain George Grey knocked on his door, he lost no time in clearing the decks. The 'Register' of the following Saturday, 22 May, contains a large advertisement for a public sale to be conducted by the Adelaide Auction Company, acting 'under instructions from Colonel Gawler to sell ... on Wednesday next, at twelve precisely, his surplus Furniture and effects'. Before the 'very elegant and useful' carriage and 'A lot of pigs', but after the superb piano with 'extra set of Strings, Oilcloth Cover, Canterbury, Tuning Key and pair of elegant Music Stools', a pair of globes, 'iron bedsteads (brass ornaments) with mattress, bolster, and pillows' and '300 ounces of useful plate, in spoons, forks, fish slices, butter knives, teapots, ladles, &c.', there are 'About 200 volumes of books'. This item is one of them. Consult the Australian Dictionary of Biography for the potted history of Gawler's 31 months in South Australia, from his arrival in October 1838 with the task of rendering 'viable the experiment in systematic, self-supporting colonization' until he was abandoned as the scapegoat under 'the combined weight of outraged Wakefield theorists, commissioners anxious to whitewash themselves, and enemies of the colony'. He left Adelaide a month later on the 'Dumfries'. This small volume, with its curiously affecting inscription inserted on the day by someone with a sense of history in the making, is a wonderful footnote to the story.

Dort lernte er Klemens Maria Hofbauer kennen und begann 1820 das Theologiestudium. Er wurde am 21. August 1823 zum Priester geweiht. Ab 1825 war er Professor für Kirchengeschichte und Kirchenrecht im Lyzeum in Salzburg. Seit 1832 war er Direktor der orientalischen Akademie in Wien. Er wurde 1849 zum Fürstbischof von Seckau ernannt [.]. 1853 erfolgte die Ernennung zum Erzbischof der Erzdiözese Wien und am 17. Dezember 1855 die Erhebung zum Kardinal [.].

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.

        GAMONIA Or the Art of Preserving Game and an Improved Method of Making Plantations and Covers

      Rudolph Ackermann 1837 - First edition, with errata slip to the last printed leaf. Original publisher's full green morocco with gilt decoration and lettering. All edges gilt. A fine copy, the spine slightly faded with a small ink stain to the upper board, but unusually bright and crisp. Internally fresh with the colour plates notably clean and vibrant. Fifteen hand-coloured aquatint plates after J. T. Rawlins. "An esteemed book. It is really a treatise on forestry, written with a view to laying out plantations in the way most suitable to game preservation. But the highly coloured plates mostly represent shooting scenes. They are unusually attractive, and convey a good impression of the way in which our forebears killed their game, in the beginning of the 19th century. There are several pictures showing a kind of battue, where the sportsmen used two guns and loaders, but the shooting appears to have been very wild."

        A Review, Financial, Statistical, & Commercial, of the Empire of Brazil and its Resources: Together with a Suggestion of the Expediency and Mode of Admitting Brazilian and other Foreign Sugars into Great Britain for Refining and Exportation.

      London, Effingham Wilson, 1837. 8vo. Slightly later dark green pebble-grained cloth, spine lettered in gilt, yellow endpapers; pp. viii, 151, large folding table, others in the text; very light marginal wear, title and last leaf a little spotted due to offsetting from fly-leaves; provenance: from Gloucestershire County Library with their stamps and shelfmarks; contemporary engraved armorial bookplate G. R. Porter inside front cover. Very rare first edition of this economic study of Brazil at the beginning of the Victorian era, with the aim of attracting British investment to the recently established independent country, 'now possessed of a well-ordered, economical, and popular Governement' (p. viii). Johann Jakob Sturz was born in Frankfurt (1800) to a Bavarian civil servant, who had 12 children. He became a merchant, and driven by wanderlust did business in Mexico, before he was hired by a London gold mining company active in Brazil. Disgusted by the treatment of the black workforce, he quit this good position after two years. He then campaigned for free trade with Brazil, linking the country with the world economy, against slavery, and after long negotiations and after having invested much of his own wealth, a British steam ship company gained access to Brazilian rivers and ports in 1838. He devoted the rest of his life (he died in 1877) to philanthropic causes, and campaigned against cruelty to animals. All of his books and pamphlets are of great rarity. Borba de Moraes 841.

This compendium of information designed to encourage settlers to come to Missouri was assembled by soldier, trapper, explorer, and publisher Alphonso Wetmore (1793-1849), who enlisted prominent men from each county in the state to contribute information about the amenities of their region.

At the end of the book one finds the Constitution of the State of Missouri.
