        The Silurian System, Founded on Geological Researches

Large folding map, mounted on three pieces of linen, housed in matching half calf fold over box. Numerous plates, many folding and coloured. Interally clean. A nicely bound copy of a foundational geological text. A landmark in the history of geology, presenting, for the first time, the succession of fossils below the Old Red Sandstone and thus opening up a diverse "new" epoch of fossil discoveries unlike those seen before. This monograph allowed for the dating of fossiliferous strata much earlier than the Old Red Sandstone and enhanced the scientific understanding of early animal life, even playing an important role in the debate of the genesis of life itself (Beverley 179) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Amorina eller historien om de fyra.

      I-II. Jönköping, J. P. Lundström, 1839. 8:o. (4),XL,(2),224 + (4),225-364 s. Samtida hfrbd med guldornerad rygg och brandröd titeletikett i mönsterpressad papp. Gula snitt. Lite småstänk och ytliga repor i skinnet på ryggen. Spår av borttaget exlibris på främre pärmens insida. Aningen svag i häftningen mellan s. 358 och 359. Bitvis lagerfläckig och med några spridda hål i pappret, t.ex. på s. 171 i första delen med en liten förlust av pagineringen som följd. Reva på s. 319. Bra ex.. Almquistiana 229. "Amorina" påbörjades 1821 och var nästan färdigtryckt året därpå. Av hävd har antagits att några ark då föll i händerna på Almquists farbror, biskopen i Härnösand Eric Abraham Almquist, och att denne fick sin brorson att inställa utgivningen. Bo Bennich-Björkman presenterade 1986 en alternativ förklaring som tar fasta på en brand 1822 hos Almquists förläggare E. A. Ortman. Delar av Ortmans lager förstördes och den ekonomiskt hårt trängde förläggaren var sannolikt tvungen att välja säkrare investeringar än "Amorina". De redan tryckta arken tycks ha sålt som makulatur. "Amorina" gavs ut i sin helhet först 1839, delvis omarbetad. Detta är alltså den andra upplagan, men den första kompletta

        Autograph letter signed to Robert Southey :

      "At the desire of my own, & Mrs. Murray's, excellent friend - Mrs. Trollope, I write these few lines of introduction to you. Her valuable writings will obtain for her a far more flattering reception than any unnecessary recommendation from me.Allow me to congratulate you upon your recent alliance with a Lady of whose talents and amiability I have heard invaluable praise". Albermarle Street, July 24th 1839. 1-side 8vo; laid down on a leaf from an album compiled by Maria Burrard, 2nd cousin of Caroline Anne Southey. Murray refers, of course, to Southey's marriage to Caroline Bowles. With the related autograph letter from FRANCES TROLLOPE (1780-1863; novelist), in the third person, to Robert Southey: "Mrs. Trollope presents her compliments to Mr. & Mrs. Southey and with her daughter and two sons will have the honour of calling on them any morning after tomorrow that they will have the kindness to name". Ambleside, Wednesday Aug. 7th 1839. Laid down on part of another leaf from the same album, on the reverse of which is the end of a letter from Lady Charlotte Bury (1775-1861; novelist): "Lady Charlotte begs to apologise for this liberty"

        Veduta della Gran Piazza del Popolo appena s'entra

      L?opera viene eseguita tra il 1836 e il 1839, anno della sua pubblicazione composta da 80 tavole, illustra il viaggio da Roma a Napoli lungo la Via Appia. L?autore vuole fornire al viaggiatore una guida colta e intelligente che lo accompagni lungo l?itinerario delle stazioni di posta. Il viaggio inizia da Porta del Popolo e percorrendo l?asse di Via del Corso, Piazza Venezia, Fori Imperiali e Colosseo, arriva a Porta San Giovanni e lasciando l?Appia in direzione di Albano.Già dalla metà del diciottesimo secolo, con la pubblicazione nel 1745 a Napoli della Via Appia riscoperta e descritta da Roma a Brindisi da F. M. Pratili, la Via Appia era divenuta oggetto di interesse e di ricerca per studiosi e artisti. Rossini dimostra di aver conosciuto e forse utilizzato alcuni disegni acquerellati, eseguiti da Carlo Labruzzi nel 1789, per conto di Sir Richard Colt Hoare, che avevano lo scopo di illustrare il viaggio che questi aveva deciso di intraprendere influenzato dalla lettura delle ?Satire? di Orazio (30 a. C.), e in particolare della Quinta, in cui l?autore narra il viaggio che ha compiuto da Roma a Brindisi in compagnia di Mecenate e di altri suoi amiciNelle Spiegazione delle Tavole oltre alle notizie storiche- artistiche e archeologiche, vengono inserite informazioni sulla popolazione e sulle attività agricole delle campagne e dei paesi che vengono a trovarsi lungo il viaggio. L?autore con quest?opera vuole costituire una guida di facile consultazione per il viaggiatore durante le varie tappe del percorso, ed è per questo che ricorre alla scelta del formato ad album. Con il Viaggio Pittoresco, l?animazione delle vedute non è più solo la rappresentazione del popolano romano, di derivazione pinelliana, ma è l?introduzione per la prima volta, anche di membri di quelle classi sociali a cui erano destinate le sue opere. La scelta di questa nuova ambientazione sociale sarà una delle caratteristiche delle opere degli ultimi anni.La tecnica ormai giunta alla piena maturità, rivela una scioltezza del segno e nell?uso dei chiaroscuri fortemente accentuati, Rossini riconferma la sua vocazione per la chiara e piacevole narrazione.Di quest?opera se ne parlerà nel periodico romano L?Album, in cui una tavola della raccolta, (n. 43. Il Tempio di Giove a Terracina) sarà inserita, in dimensioni ridotte, in un numero del 6 marzo 1841, mentre nel 1846 vi comparirà un articolo dello stesso autore dal titolo Intorno ad alcune antichità di Terracina. A VOYAGE PITTORESQUE FROM ROME TO NAPLESThe work has been realized between 1836 and 1839, made of 80 plates, depicts the journey from Rome to Naples along the Via Appia. The author wants to provide the traveller with a clever and interesting guide which can accompany him through his journey. The route starts in Porta del Popolo and, through the axis of Via del Corso, Piazza Venezia, Fori Imperiali and Colosseum, brings to Porta San Giovanni to leave the Via Appia towards Albano.Already in the second half of the XVIII century, with the publication of Via Appia riscoperta e descritta da Roma a Brindisi (Naples, 1745) by F. M. Pratili, the Via Appia had become an interesting subject for artists and scholars. Rossini showed to know very well, and maybe to have also studied, the watercolour paintings Carlo Labruzzi realized in 1789, for Sir Richard Colt Hoare, which illustrated the journey Sir Hoare took after reading Horace?s ?Satires?, from Rome to Brindisi. In the Explanation to the Plates, besides some historic ? artistic ? archaeological news, there are information about the population and its activities in the country side and the villages that can be found along the route. With this work, the author wanted to realize a user-friendly guide, and this is why he chose the album-size edition. With his Picturesque Journey, the animation of his views is not just the representation of the Romans any more, but it represents the first real introduction of that part of the society he wanted to reach. The choice of this new social setting will prove to be one of the main characteristic of his last works. The technique is now mature, the sign is defined and the use of chiaroscuro extremely stressed: Rossini is affirming again his inclination for a clear and easy narration. This collection will be mentioned also in the Roman journal L?Album, in which a plate of the collection (n. 43. Il Tempio di Giove a Terracina) will be published, although in smaller size, in March the 6th, 1841, while in 1846 it published an article of the same author with the title Intorno ad alcune antichità di Terracina.

Passionnant manuscrit original relatant l'histoire de la ville de Marle (d'abord à travers la chronique du diocèse de Laon, reprise de Lelong, puis les annotations se multiplient, et les sources, ainsi que les annotations des rédacteurs se font toujours plus nombreuses).

        Remarkable Hills on the upper Missouri [Tab. 34]

      Paris, Coblenz and London: [1839-1842]. Aquatint engraving by Salathé after Bodmer, proof on india paper mounted, blindstamp, issue with no date after English imprint. Shaved into plate area. 16 1/8 x 21 inches. A rare India proof of this composite plate made up from nine separate views, but with plain borders between each image. Numbered in the plate from 1 to 9 they were all sketched during the journey up river aboard the 60-foot keelboat Flora. Prince Maximilian and his party left Fort Union on 6 July and eventually arrived at Fort McKenzie on 9 August 1833 traveling through a number of different regions including the Mauvaises Terres and the Stone Walls (e.g. Nos. 2, 6 and others in the present composite, an area that Maximilian wrote of as `the most interesting part of the whole course of the Missouri'), also included are images of formations now known as Dike and Citadel Rock (nos. 4 and 5).Karl Bodmer'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's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what were to become virtually lost cultures. Graff 4648; Howes M443a; Pilling 2521; Sabin 47014; Wagner-Camp 76:1.

        TURKISH JOURNAL 1839-1840 - "Voyage in the Mediterranean, Levant and Black Seas": The extensive and very detailed manuscript journal of Sanderson Walker; he commencing his voyage on board the Brig Macleod on Tuesday 22nd October 1839.

      Not published, 1839.. The journal commences "Proceeded by railway to Shields with orders for the ship to be hove out and prepared for sailing, with which I found the crew engaged, and learned that the compliment of men was obtained so that there was no further obstacle to departure ..... after a short wait for some seamen, who are always inclined to dally at such a moment, and drink freely before going on a distant voyage - we found all right, all anchors up, boats in, pilot on board, spread our sails and down the harbour we went - Father and a few other friends kindly accompanying us over the bar, then taking warm and affectionate leaves, they saluted us with three hearty cheers, which we, perhaps more faintly returned, then bracing up the yards bounded over the sea .....".The voyage out by the 'Macleod" and thence by steamers to his varied destinations, including Constantinople, Smyrna, Alexandria, Syria, etc.A contemporary transcript by Sanderson Walker, most likely from his notes made during the six month journey. Closely and neatly written on 470-pages 4to (8¾ x 7¼ inches), circa 55,000 words. Contemporary half maroon morocco gilt, marbled boards, the spine gilt lettered, "Turkish Journal" within an elaborate scrolled gilt border, all edges gilt; excellent.Illustrated by the insertion of 9 steel engraved plates. 21st October 1839 - 29th April 1840. The following extract from the journal will give an indication of the content :6th Jan. 1842 Hotel d'Orient, Alexandria: "Mr. Waghorn [Thomas Waghorn, 1800-1850; postal pioneer] this morning on his return from the upper country, reminded me strongly both in person and manners of poor Rev. P...d of Doncaster, all life and speculation, involved in many schemes, and does much in promoting the Overland communication with India which has undoubtedly been hastened by some years through his efforts, at present he is endeavouring to establish navigation of the Nile by small steamers, a grand improvement on the present tedious medium of the filthy passage boats. Travellers to India say that it is worth coming this route - were it only to make Waghorn's acquaintance, he is all locomotion and speed - now here, now there, at Cairo, Suez .. and back. This morning induced a man by fee to guide me to the Slave Market, a spot not often visited by Christians, as I felt a strong curiosity to see the horrid mart of traffic in human beings. It is an obscure spot near the general Bazaar, but not very easily found, where round a small square area are ranged a number of wooden boxes like sheep pens for the reception of the darker races, and small rooms hung with mats for the protection of the more valuable specimens. There were a number of young negroes of both sexes, principally from the provinces of Abyssinia and Sinaar - varying in age from ten to twenty years .... the girls were placed in the pens, all were young, many had elegant figures and smooth well shaped limbs, concealed but by scanty covering of long loose cotton robes thrown over them, and in adjusting of it revealed much of the person - their skins were glossy and soft, the colour of a light chocolate to a dark black - their hair in general curiously crisped as negroes are, one in particular had hair of a singular light bluish hue and crisped in curl. Several had clear blue eyes contrasting unnaturally with their black negro faces, thick flat noses, prominent lips and projecting jaws - as did their elegant figures with ugly heads. The poor boys, many were children, were squalling on the ground in groups over the area merry as grigs, chubby little fellows still more miserably clad. My appearance in this place created much attention, my Frank dress was especially marked, and the little fellows laughed and pointed at my strange garments ....... I saw a bargain making for one fine tall girl about seventeen who was walked up and down as dealers show horses, to display their fine gait and figure, handled as we handle cattle,......".

Fem tryckta ark av andra delen av Stockholms flora. Stockholm, 1844?). 8:o. 80 s. Första delen i något nött samtida hfrbd, guld- och blindpräglad rygg, gröna stänksnitt. Liten skada på övre kapitäl. Andra delen häftad, i samtida pappersomslag, något lös i ryggen och främre omslaget loss. På omslaget till andra delen en längre gåvotillskrift till notarien L. H. Swahn från författarens systerson Roos. Ur Måns Rybergs bibliotek. Krok 763:13b. Akrell 1002, för första delen. Bygdén s. 23. Essén s. 50. Allt som utkom. Av den andra delen trycktes endast dessa fem ark, vilka aldrig såldes i bokhandeln. Kartan graverades av C. F. Himberg. Den långa växtgeografiska inledningen till första delen utgavs även separat under titeln "Öfversigt af Stockholms-traktens natur-beskaffenhet" och har eget impressum daterat 1839. På. s. 109-113 finns även en genomgång av Stockholmstraktens fiskar, 48 arter. "Stockholms flora" är innehavaren av bergianska professuren Johan Emanuel Wikströms (1789-1856) viktigaste arbete. Även Måns Ryberg var innehavare av den bergianska professuren! Gunnar Eriksson skriver i "Bergianska botanister" att det säkert var Wikströms "förhoppning att floran skulle komma till användning vid Stockholmsläroverken som lärobok och handledning vid botaniska exkursioner och växtinsamlingar." Denna förhoppning grusades av att K. F. Thedenius vid samma tid utgav ett särskilt florakompendium avsett för skolbruk

        Snags (sunken trees) on the Missouri [Tab. 6]

      Paris, Coblentz and London: 1839-1842. Aquatint engraving by L. Weber and Hurlimann after Bodmer, proof on india paper mounted, blindstamp. India paper lifting slightly, small marginal tears to mount not affecting image area, light marginal dampstaining. 14 3/16 x 17 1/8 inches. 18 1/2 x 24 3/4 inches. A rare Inia proof of this almost apocalyptic view of the treacherous waters of the Missouri River. The river was the longest in the country and was considered the most hazardous of all the western rivers to navigate. Edging their way between the rafts of driftwood became increasingly difficult for the travelers aboard the steamer Yellow Stone, as she made her way up river toward the mouth of the River Platte. On 26 April 1833 she passed the mouth of the Nemaha River and again encountered snags and sandbars. In his journal for that date Maximilian noted that `For a long time we could not get away from this and often ran aground… but finally with a little force of the engine we moved on'.Karl Bodmer'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's servant and hunting companion), their travels in North America were to last from 1832 to 1834. Well-armed with information and advice, the party finally left St.Louis, on the most important stage of their travels, aboard the steamer Yellow Stone on April 10 1833. They proceeded up the treacherous Missouri River along the line of forts established by the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux tribe, learning of and recording their little known ceremonial dances and powerful pride and dignity. Transferring from the Yellow Stone to another steamer, the Assiniboin, they continued to Fort Clark, visiting there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow tribes, then the Assiniboins at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana, establishing a cautious friendship with the fearsome Blackfeet. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and especially the people, who were often both intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for their capturing of individual personalities, as well as forming a primary account of what was to become virtually lost cultures.

      xii, 591 pp. 4to. Contemporary quarter morocco over marbled boards, raised bands, compartments decorated in gilt, marbled endpapers. First edition. Illus. with 18 engraved plates on India paper and 34 woodcut vignettes. Sabin 5832. Howes B 507 (aa). Palau 30412. Graff 323. Raines p. 145. Streeter Texas 1343. Brunet I: 963 (1841). Leclerc 1075. Graesse I: 436 (1841). "The most exhaustive work on this episode [the Pastry War] with illustrations, mainly by Blanchard, who, assisting also as interpreter, had additional opportunity for gaining information. He accompanied Baudin's representative to Mexico and other places, and used his pen freely in observations on the scenery, the people, and their institutions, all of which served to add variety and interest to the narrative, the attractive style of which owes much to the revision of Dauzats, " (Bancroft, Hist. Mexico, p. 204). Raines, discussing Maissin's report, concludes that "Admiral Baudin's favorable report of Texas doubtless hastened the recognition of the Republic by France, " (Bibliography of Texas. p. 145). Printing on India paper was not common; Sabin also notes that the book was printed for 45 fr. with vignettes and 25 fr without. A very good or better copy, boards and spine rubbed, scattered foxing mainly marginal and to verso of plates.

        Suggestions Relative to the Philosophy of Geology

      New Haven: Printed by B.L. Hamlen. 1839. First. First edition. Stitched. 119pp. Wrappers lacking. Modest wear to the first leaf, very good. Inscribed by the author: "George Combe Esq. with affec. regards of the author. March 10, 1840." The inscription is a bit irregularly faded but readable. Combe was a Scot, and a leading writer on education and especially phrenology. His writings drew much attention to the subject on the continent and in the U.S., where Silliman was reportedly engaged by the subject. Combe visited the U.S. between 1838 and 1840, presumably when this pamphlet was presented. A nice association. .
