        ORNITHOLOGICAL BIOGRAPHY, OR AN ACCOUNT OF THE HABITS OF THE BIRDS OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

      Edinburgh. 1831-1839. - Five volumes. A few in-text illustrations. Half title in third, fourth, and fifth volumes. Large thick octavos. 20th-century cloth, spines gilt. An occasional bit of tanning or a fox mark, but generally quite clean internally. Very good. This is Audubon's text, designed to accompany the elephant folio edition of THE BIRDS OF AMERICA, giving sketches of the birds described therein. Of great interest are Audubon's accounts of his travels and adventures in the American hinterland, scattered through the volumes as part of the bird descriptions and as separate anecdotes. Includes accounts of his experiences in the Florida Keys, along the Mississippi, and in Louisiana and Kentucky in the 1820s and '30s. Audubon published the text separately from the double elephant folio plates in order to avoid a stricture of the British Copyright Act of 1709, which would have required him to deposit a set of the plates with each of nine depository libraries in the United Kingdom. The publication date on the titlepage of the fifth volume is incorrectly printed as "1849." One of the classic texts of American natural history. HOWES A389, "aa." MEISEL III, p.406. SABIN 2366. CLARK II:179 (ref). SERVIES 1532, 1677, 1743, 2120, 2302.

        Three Expeditions into the Interior of Eastern AustraliaÖ

      London,: T. & W. Boone, 1839.. Two volumes, octavo, with a total of 51 lithographic plates including six colour chromolithographic and three folding plates, the large folding map repaired on the far left from an earlier tear, scattered foxing to some plates as common, one leaf torn at fore-edge with no loss of text; very good and attractive in the original publisher's blocked green cloth, spine lettered in gilt. Second revised edition of Mitchell's classic account of his three expeditions along the river systems of south-eastern Australia, strikingly illustrated with lithographic plates taken from original field sketches by the author.Between 1831-1836 Mitchell undertook three expeditions to determine the course of several large rivers in southern mainland Australia, including the Gwydir and Darling, accompanied by fellow surveyors, skilled convicts and Aboriginal guides. The expeditions were motivated by the government's need to map, and therefore own, land before it was occupied by squatters who were taking prime grazing land at an alarming rate. Furthermore, much past survey work had been inaccurate and disputes between landowners prompted calls for a general survey of New South Wales.Three Expeditions into the Interior is a remarkable book, combining detailed scientific observation with rich descriptions of landscapes and Aboriginal tribes. Its ethnographic value is considerable, providing detailed descriptions of first contacts and of Aboriginal social organization, hunting and languages. Some tribes were very hostile and Mitchell writes that he feared for his life on several occasions; nonetheless he remained a sympathetic and careful observer of Aboriginal life while praising the knowledge and endurance of those who helped the expedition.Ferguson, 2811.

        Avis du Conseil colonial de Bourbon, sur diverses propositions concernant l'esclavage.

      Paris, Imprimerie Royale, 1839, - in-4, 28-[2] pp., cartonnage Bradel de papier gris, étiquette de titre en long (Ateliers Laurenchet). Bon exemplaire.Le volume, présenté aux députés dans le cadre des discussions lancées depuis 1838 sur la question de l'émancipation, complète le volumineux rapport émané de la Guadeloupe et de la Martinique, par le seul texte envoyé ultérieurement par l'île de la Réunion. Relié à la suite : PATRON (Félix) : A Monsieur le Président et Messieurs les membres de la Chambre des Députés. Paris, Imprimerie de Béthune et Plon, s.d. [1837], 15 pp. Datée de Pointe-à-Pitre, cette missive illustre à merveille l'argumentation des colons contre l'abolition ; il vaut la peine d'en citer un paragraphe : "Mais pourquoi, dira t-on, n'obtiendrait-on pas du nègre libre le travail qu'on obtient du nègre esclave ? C'est parce que tous les hommes, plus ou moins, sont enclins à l'oisiveté, et qu'ils ne se livrent au travail que lorsque la nécessité de pourvoir, soit aux besoins que la nature leur impose, soit à ceux que la civilisation leur donne, leur en fait la loi ; or, le nègre, par le climat qu'il habite, par son peu de civilisation, n'ayant presque aucun de ces besoins et étant de sa nature essentiellement paresseux, a le travail en horreur, non comme on l'a prétendu, parce que les blancs par son excès le lui ont rendu tel, mais parce qu'il n'en comprend pas la nécessité et parce que pour lui l'oisiveté est le plus grand des biens.

        Original pen and ink drawing celebrating English navy

      [England]: 1839. Pen and ink drawing by Edward Williams, signed at foot '1839. Edward Williams. 1839.' (expertly repaired 2 inch tear, small section of lower right corner supplied in later facsimile). 11 1/16 x 8 7/8 inches. A fine example of the Naval folk art of the period. The drawing is in two parts: the upper section shows a half length semi- caricature portrait in profile of an English Royal Navy seaman with arms crossed holding a 'grog' cup, within an oval border bearing the names of English victories at sea 'St. Vincent La Hogue Camperdown Copenhagen Trafalgar Nile &c. &c.'. The border is supported by the just visible end of a cannon to the left and an anchor to the right. The second half of the drawing is a shaped rectangle of black with an outlined eight-line poem: "Oh! There's a Land, of ev'ry Land the pride, / Belov'd of Heav'n o'er all the World beside. / There is a Spot of Earth supremely blest, / A Dearer, Sweeter spot, than all the rest. / Where shall that land, that Spot of Earth be found? / Art Thou a Man/ A Patriot? Look around, / Oh, Thou shalt find, howe'er thy footsteps roam. / That Land, thy Country - And that Spot, thy Home."

        1. Undersögelse om de almindelige Naturkræfter og deres gjensidige Afhængighed og i særdeleshed om den ved visse faste Legemers Gnidning udviklede Varme [Survey on the Universal Forces of Nature and their Mutial Dependence and especially about the Heat that Emerges from the Friction of Certain Bodies]; 2. Om Magnetens Indvirkning paa blödt Jern [On the Effect of the Magnet on Soft Iron]; 3. Om de almindelige Naturkræfter og deres gjensidige Afhængighed [On the Universal Forces of Nature and their Mutial Dependence].Copenhagen: Bianco Luno, 1850. First edition.

      Rare offprint issues of these three important papers, by the co-discoverer of the principle of conservation of energy, published one year before Mayer's <i>Bemerkungen über das mechanische Aequivalent der Wärme</i> (i.e., Dibner 157).<br/><br/> "A concept of special and abiding importance to Colding was the notion of a 'principle of the imperishability of the forces of nature,' and it is this phase of his scientific and philosophical work that is likely to be of principal interest to scholars outside Denmark. Aside from the general intellectual milieu fostered at the Polytechnic, several specific factors are discernible in the background of this idea. By Colding's own account the earliest hint of the idea occurred to him in 1839, while still a student, when he was led to contemplate 'd'Alembert's principle concerning lost forces.' The starting point for these speculations was, however, as much of a religious and metaphysical nature:<br/><br/> <i>'My first thought concerning the imperishability of the forces of nature I have, as I have mentioned earlier, borrowed from the view that the forces of nature must be related to the spiritual in nature, to the eternal reason as well as to the human soul. Thus it was the religious philosophy of life that led me to the concept of the imperishability of forces. By this line of reasoning I became convinced that just as it is true that the human soul is immortal, so it must also surely be a general law of nature that the forces of nature are imperishable (L. A. Colding, Naturvidenskabelige Betragtninger . . ., 155).'</i><br/><br/> Oersted's personal influence on Colding's religiophilosophical development is clear and was repeatedly acknowledged by Colding himself. Moreover, his preoccupation with a fundamental underlying harmony or unity in the material world was a recurrent and dominant contemporary philosophical view, voiced especially in <i>Naturphilosophie</i>, of which Oersted was a firm adherent. <br/><br/> In 1839 Colding finally had the opportunity to assist Oersted in a series of fundamental experiments on the compression of water, a subject that had occupied Oersted off and on for many years. The results were puzzling at the time, and only in the following decade was the underlying effect - the increase in temperature of a liquid when it is adiabatically compressed -recognized as central to the concept of energy and its conservation. <br/><br/> "The energy concept was vaguely recognized by 1840, having essentially been anticipated but not published or expounded publicly by Sadi Carnot. The first explicit suggestion of an invariable relationship between heat and mechanical work was put forth by J. R. Mayer in Germany in 1842 and a year later, independently, by J. P. Joule in England and by Colding. The circumstances surrounding this nearly simultaneous enunciation of the principle of the conservation of the "forces" of nature, and its manifold sources, have received considerable attention from historians of nineteenth-century science. Mayer, a physician, was first guided to the principle through metabolic observations on the relationship between heat produced by the human organism and the work expended in producing it. Joule, in contrast, was a physical scientist and brilliant experimenter. Originally concerned with improving the efficiency of electric motors, he employed his gift for precision measurements to yield a long series of determinations of the "mechanical equivalent" of heat with steadily increasing accuracy. Colding appears to have compounded the energy principle from a complex merger of metaphysical speculation and experiment. In 1847 appeared the classic treatise by Helmholtz, which treated the interconversion of forms of energy from a very general point of view. It had considerable influence on the mature formulation Page 86 | Top of Articleof the energy concept, although the systematic development of thermodynamics came in the second half of the century, mainly by R. Clausius, W. J. Rankine, and William Thomson. <br/><br/> "Colding's first paper on the subject, 'Nogle Saetninger om Kraefterne' ('Theses Concerning Force'), was read before the Danish Society of Sciences in 1843, although its publication was delayed until 1856. In it he first summarized available data on friction and compressibilities of various materials indicating that the heat evolved is dependent on the compression or friction. Next, he reported on an experiment of his own in which the mechanical work required to move a weighted sled over a track of metal rails was correlated with the linear expansion of rails and sled runners, as a result of the frictional heating. He concluded that ". . . the quantities of heat evolved are, in every case, proportional to the lost moving forces," although he neglected to condense these preliminary results in a numerical coefficient of proportionality. Consequently, 'When a force seems to disappear it merely undergoes a transformation, whereupon it becomes effective in other forms.' <br/><br/> "On Oersted's recommendation, a more elaborate version of this experiment, supported by the Danish Society of Sciences, was subsequently carried out by Colding. The new results were reported at the 1847 meeting of Scandinavian scientists in Copenhagen, and published in the first of two companion papers in 1850, 'Undersögelse om de almindelige Naturkraefter og deres gjensidige Afhaengighed og isaerdeleshed om den ved visse faste Legemers Gnidning udviklede Varme' ('Investigation Concerning the Universal Forces of Nature and Their Mutual Dependence and Especially Concerning the Heat Evolved From the Friction of Certain Solid Bodies'). From these measurements he adopted a value for the mechanical equivalent of heat approximately 14 percent lower than the modern accepted value (by this time Joule was within 1 percent of the accepted value). An alternative derivation of this constant yielding (fortuitously, as it turned out) essentially the same value, based on Oersted's experiments on the compression of water and on the then available (albeit not very accurate) value for the specific heat of air appeared in his second paper of 1850. 'Om de almindelige Naturkraefter og deres gjensidige Afhaengighed' ('On the Universal Forces of Nature and Their Mutual Dependence'), which is largely theoretical and devoted to a mathematical treatment of thermodynamic relations."

        [Cave-In-Rock. view on the Ohio [Vig. 7]

      Paris, Coblenz and London: 1839-42]. Aquatint engraving by Lucas Weber after Bodmer, proof before all letters, issue with one figure at the rail on the right hand side of the deck of the paddle-steamer, extensive use of aquatint on the river and scrub and small trees next to the boat on the far right. 10 3/16 x 13 3/4 inches. 12 3/8 x 17 7/8 inches. A very rare proof before letters En route to St.Louis, Missouri, Bodmer, Prince Maximilian and Dreidoppel traveled via the Ohio river. About twenty-five miles beyond Shawnee Town, Bodmer sketched this intriguing geological rock formation known as Cave-In-Rock on the Illinois side of the river near Cave-In-Rock Island. The scene also includes an Ohio steamer flanked by two Ohio keelboats, all caught against a late evening sky. Unsurprisingly, the area is now part of a National Park. Karl Bodmer&#39;s images show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. Swiss-born Bodmer was engaged by Prince Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied (1782-1867) specifically to provide a record of his travels in North America, principally among the Plains Indians. In the company of David Dreidoppel (Prince Maximilian&#39;s servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. They arrived in Boston in July 1832, traveled on to Philadelphia, where they stayed with Napoleon Bonaparte&#39;s elder brother Joseph. From here they headed west across Pennsylvania across the Alleghenies to Pittsburgh and the Ohio country, visiting all the important German settlements en route. Their most important stop on their route west was at the utopian colony of New Harmony in Indiana. The Prince spent five months there in the company of some of the country&#39;s leading scientific men, and studying all the relevant literature on backcountry America. On 24 March 1833 the party reached St. Louis, Missouri, and the start of the journey into Indian country. Graff 4648; Howes M443a; Pilling 2521; Sabin 47014; Wagner-Camp 76:1.

Boards are heavily worn at the edges, with library markings. Withdrawn stamp appears on the first issue of each volume, but these are otherwise free of library markings. Very scarce early newspaper. . Now known as the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, this publication is the longest running in the region, as well as being the first paper to be published West of the Allegheny Mountains (1786). Under its first editor John Scull, it was known as the Gazette. After his retirement in 1828, the Gazette passed into the hands of Morgan Neville who changed the name of the Pittsburgh Gazette and Manufacturing and Mercantile Advertiser and, within a year, sold it to David McClean. The McCleans dropped the long title and reverted back to the Gazette. Neville Craig, editor of these issues, followed the McCleans and brought new life to what had become a somewhat stodgy publication. Under Craig, the Gazette became a personalized "daily" with many new features and a Washington correspondent.

      London: T. M&#39;Lean,. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1839-40-41-49. First Edition. Hardcover. Tinted litho; Folio 15 x 22"; Orig. 1/2 black calf leather & gilt-lettered cloth; scuffed, binding firm. With 104 tinted litho plates (including vignette titles). Moderate foxing to dedication/contents leaves, scattered light foxing to plates, some chipping to corner margins of Second Series [1840], plates. Abbey, Scenery, 402 (calling for 106 plates - copy above complete as issued) Elizabethan and early Jacobean houses of England as they looked in the mid-19th century, but populated with people. FIRST EDITION. THE TURNOR COPY OF &#39;AN EARLY EXAMPLE OF THREE-COLOUR PRINTING&#39; (Abbey). Views originated in drawings of two state visits which Nash, an architectural draughtsman and student of Pugin, had made on Queen Victoria&#39;s instructions, and were then supplemented with further views to complete the series. With The Mansions of England in Olden Times (London: 1839-1849) , M. Twyman considers Views Nash&#39;s &#39;only other important original publication&#39; (Lithography 1800-1850, London: 1970, p. 216). Although no printer&#39;s name is given, it seems most probable that the work was printed by Charles Hullmandel, who was responsible for Nash&#39;s lithographs at this time .

IN TWO DIVISIONS, illustrated with two maps. By M. H. COWELL, Corresponding Member, and Local Secretary for Kent, of the Botanical Society of London.

      W. Ratcliffe, Court Street; Faversham W. Pamplin, Jun Botanical Bookseller, Lavender Hill Wandsworth, Surrey, and all Booksellers . 1839 - First Edition, 8vo. xiv + [ii] + 98 pp. + [6] pp. catalogue. Illustrated with one double-page hand-coloured lithographic map of Faversham and district and one engraved uncoloured map of the Isle of Thanet. Bound in twentieth century cloth with the original label affixed to upper board. A very good copy of this rare item. This work was only produced once, and the print-run must have been very small, as we have not catalogued a single example for over 30 years. As a comment on Jacob's 'Flora of Faversham' this gives an update and retrospect to that work and adds a further 21 'first' records for the county. Very little seems to be known about Mr Cowell other than his membership of various Botanical Societies: and this - his lasting memorial.

Generally binding in very good condition. Internally, no loose pages, previous owners bookplate on fixed endpaper of each volume,few pages of text and about 5 plates have some light browining. Pages and illustrations in very good clean condition. A good set of these handsome volumes devoted to the decorative arts in France from the 6th to 17th centuries, providing carefully executed engraved plates. Willemin&#39;s ambition was to present a parallel of antique and French art and design, but this proved an impossible task, and Willemin, perhaps spurred on by the revival of interest in medieval art across the Channel, decided to devote the latter half of his career to the production of the present volumes, chronicling the best examples of French design of the mediaeval and early renaissance period by examples taken from buildings, works of art, books and manuscripts. Willemin started work on it in 1806 (the engraved title leaf to the first volume bears this date), but he died in 1833 before the plates were quite finished, and it was left to his daughter to arrange for the engravings of the last of the plates and to commission an explanatory text from André Pottier. Willemin was the first to provide such accurate illustrations of French mediaeval decorative art and his plates had considerable influence in forming contemporary taste. It may be noted that he was a personal friend of Augustus Pugin senior, who allowed objects from his personal collection of mediaeval antiquities to be illustrated on one of the plates, and that the frontispiece to the younger Pugin&#39;s True Principles was evidently adapted from Willemin&#39;s illustration of King René of Anjou in his study.A52. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.
