        Fleurs fruits et feuillages choisis de l'ile de Java.Brussels, Librairie Européenne C. Muquardt, [1880]. Folio. With 40 full-page chromolithographed plates after original watercolours by the author, each plate accompanied by one text leaf, with descriptions in English and French. Original publisher's red half cloth, printed boards.

      - GFB, p. 60; Plesch, p. 349; Stafleu & Cowan 3025; Stiftung für Botanik 363; Tomasi, An Oak Spring Flora 87; cf. Nissen, BBI 931 (first edition). Magnificent colour-plate book by the Belgian artist Berthe Hoola van Nooten (1840-1885) showing Javanese fruits and flowers, beautifully chromolithographed by P. de Pannemaeker. Shortly after having followed her husband to Java, Indonesia, Hoola van Nooten became a widow at 21, leaving her in debt and with a family to support. To make a living, she took to painting the flora of the island. Her extraordinary sketches show the exuberant colour display of tropical fruits and flowers, ideally suited to the new technique of chromolithography. "Van Nooten was clearly a more than competent artist, for the splendid tropical plants, with their lush foliage, vividly coloured flowers and exotic fruit, have been depicted with great skill" (Tomasi). Binding restored, new endpapers, some browning. A good copy of an impressive book. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [Prominent Ottoman and entourage boarding boats before the Kilic Ali Pasha Mosque].[Istanbul?, ca. 1830/50?]. Watercolour drawing on wove paper (29.5 x 45 cm) with highlights in shellac and a thin black border. Mounted on a larger sheet of paper in a passe-partout.

      For the King family: Debrett's Peerage 1840, p. 423 & 1861, p. 338; (Debrett's) Baronetage LXXV (1893), p. 127. A lively scene on the Tophane Quay in Istanbul, with the background dominated by the dome and minaret of the 1580 Kilic Ali Pasha Mosque. The tip of a second minaret, perhaps from a different mosque, is visible in the distance. On the quay, an opulently dressed black-bearded Ottoman (a high official in the Emperor's court or a wealthy merchant?) stands in the centre of the scene with his entourage. He wears red robes trimmed with gold and with black decorations, a white turban around a red fez, and a gold waistband with the hilts of two guns sticking out, and carries a walking stick in his left hand. His entourage includes a white-bearded Islamic holy man(?) with a green turban around a red fez, a Greek or Armenian man in a black hat, a dark-skinned woman in green robes, holding a bundle, and several other men, women and children. They appear to be preparing to depart in the boats that stand ready. Two more dark-skinned women, in white robes with red and blue stripes, follow the party deferentially. Several people appear in the boats in addition to their crews. Four more white-bearded Islamic holy men (each again with a green turban around red fez) sit in one with some women, while two Ottoman infantrymen with bayonets stand in another, one just stepping out. Other parts of the quay show various men busy with their trades or smoking long pipes. From the collection of Hooton Pagnell Hall in Yorkshire, England. With a 1.5 cm tear in the water at the foot of the scene, not approaching the boats, and otherwise in very good condition. A lively and fascinating scene on a quay in Istanbul, with the dome and minaret of Kilic Ali Pasha Mosque prominently shown.

      1840. One seaman's document torn through at most of the folds, else the remainder very good overall, some soiling and spotting.. 7 sheets. The first four documents concern Nathaniel Sawyer (1784-1875) of Wilton, New Hampshire (son of Nathaniel Sawyer), who was a seaman, at least as early as 1804, and served during the War of 1812, when he was captured in Bengal and returned to England as a sailor on a ship of the East India Company, becoming a prisoner of war on his arrival. The last two documents concern the application by his mother, Prudence (1757-1839) to obtain a pension for the service during the Revolutionary War of her husband, Nathaniel Sawyer (1750-1807) under the 1838 law "An Act granting half-pay and pensions to certain widows." The documents are: 1. Dec. 12, 1804. Partially printed Seaman's Certificate with seal completed by hand, signed by Joseph Wilson as Collector of the District of Marblehead. Sawyer is listed as 21 years of age and six feet tall, dark complexion (8 3/4 x 14 3/4 inches). 2. Jan. 22, 1811. Partially printed Seaman's Certificate with seal completed by hand, signed by William W. Oliver, as (Deputy) Collector of the District of Salem and Beverly.

Note. to "certify that Nathaniel Sawyer has been with me on a voyage to the North of Spain... and that he has paid the customary hospital dues at the Custom House of this port to this day," signed Henry Russell, master. 4. Sept. 25, 1813. Fort William, Bengal. A letter certifying and sealed that Sawyer was captured in Bengal on the Schooner Alligator and is "being permitted to enter as a seaman on board the ... East India Company's ship Northhampton," to return to England, as long as he does not have to raise arms against the United States, and upon arriving in England, will be taken as a prisoner of war." Signed A. Hennessy, Town Major. 5. Sept. 3, 1838. Partially printed document. Sent by attorney Giles Yates to Asaph Sawyer of Cohoes, son of Prudence. in which Giles explains how to complete a New York State document, "Declaration in order to Obtain benefit of the act of Congress of the 7th July 1838 entitled 'An Act granting half-pay and pensions to certain widows'." In ink and pencil, with a long note on the last page explaining listing the information needed. Giles Fonda Yates (1796-1859) was a Schenectady attorney. 6. Sept. 30, 1840. Letter from Giles to [Asaph Sawyer] beginning "Since I last wrote you or conversed with on the subject of Mrs. Sawyer's claim, I have discovered the key to unravel the mystery" which turns out to be the specific names of people her husband served with as well as their attestations. Penciled notes on the verso detailing Sawyer's war record. But by then, Prudence Sawyer was dead. Abiel Abbot Livermore: History of the Town of Wilton, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, pp. 62-3; 459. NPS: Pickled Fish and Salted Provisions: Historical Musings from Salem Maritime.

Ouvrage servant de faune malacologique Italienne et de complément a la Conchiologia fossile subapennica de Brocchi.

      - Bruxelles, M. Hayez, 1840. Large 4to (29.1 x 22.0 cm). 173 pp., 12 engraved plates of which six finely hand-coloured (double suite). Contemporary blue limp leather, blue printed label with hand-written title on front wrapper.l Very rare and important publication on Mediterranean molluscs by the Belgian malacologist François Joseph Cantraine (1801-1863), with the plates in double suite, hand-coloured, and plain. With the descriptions of new species. The work is particularly important for its fine illustrations of living animals and shells of often new or poorly known species (e.g. Pteropoda and Nudibranchia, but also Helicidae). Even the smaller species are figured in great detail. We have never seen a double suite copy before. Usually this work is dated as from 1841, perhaps because volume 13 of the Mémoires of the Académie royale in Brussels were published in that year. This, however, is an offprint, dated 1840, and there is no reason to doubt that it was published in that year. Some plate references, e.g. to plate 13, are incorrect. Lacks the single page "Table alphabetique". Spine cover slightly chipped, cancellation stamp over old stamp on title page, some light, marginal spots to a few plates. Colouring very good.

        Manuscript on paper entitled "Grundsätze zur Verfassung einer richtigen Baukunst." 1 p.l., 96 pp., written in a neat & legible German hand. Bound-in are eight large & fine plates with water-color washes over pen-&-ink drawings. 4to (237 x 180 mm.), cont. marbled boards

      [Münich: ca. 1840]. A most handsomely illustrated manual on building techniques and materials. The author, about whom we know nothing, describes brick-making, masonry, and carpentry techniques. He also discusses the materials used in building such as stone, timber, bricks, etc. Perhaps the most fascinating section is his account of the construction of a bomb-proof bunker ("Über die Herstellung Bombenfreyer Räume"). The large and beautifully executed plates (305 x 420 mm.), on thick paper, depict brickwork, vaulted structures, arches, wooden joints, three roof constructions, etc. The book served as a textbook for engineering students, with a manuscript ownership note of the Bavarian engineering student, officer, and landowner Alexander Guiot du Ponteil (1824-79), with his purchase note on front paste-down. With the contemporary ownership inscription of "Johann Huschke, Ober-sapper." Fine condition.

        PASTRIES, CAKES AND TORTES: GERMAN BAKER'S ART.

      Germany: Circa 1840. Thirty-two paintings of cakes and tortes presented together as a folding frieze which, when fully extended, measures almost three-and-a-half metres in length. Certain words in the hand-written descriptions are specific to Germany in the 1840s and suggest that the frieze was utilised as something akin to a baker's catalogue shown to customers who could then order specific items for particular occasions, or as a striking shopfront display for the window. In addition to the traditional chocolate cakes and apple and linzer tortes are more curiously named creations including a 'Brassilianer'. A folding frieze of 32 gouache paintings each with individual hand-written text, each panel measuring 138 mm x 105 mm, the complete frieze is 3500 mm in length, fresh and strong colour, a few marks but in excellent condition, housed in a modern brown linen case with decorative ribbon ties, paper label to front board.

Title page and half title, 146 pp., 58 finely hand-coloured engraved plates [34 pp., 15 plates (pyrule); 19 pp., 13 plates (fasciolaire); 50 pp., 21 plates (turbinelle); 43 pp., 9 plates (cancellaire)]. Contemporary half cloth over marbled boards. Spines with gilt title. Marbled endpapers.l A very rare large-paper edition of this beautifully executed work of great scientific (taxonomical and nomenclatural) importance containing the descriptions and illustrations of many new and poorly-known shells. The larger quarto edition is more suitable to the fine illustrations by Duménil, Roch, Vaillant, Kiener himself, and others, as this work was meant to be of both scientific and aesthetic value. Nissen only mentions the 8vo edition, but on original wrappers from Kiener's time the work was stated to be available in "Grand in-8°, papier grand-raisin...figures coloriées. 6 fr.", AND "Grand in-4°, papier vélin satiné, figures coloriées 12 [fr]", i.e. twice as expensive. Louis Charles Kiener (1799-1881) made use of the famous Delessert collection and that of the Natural History Museum of Paris, the largest and most varied repositories of conchological material on the continent. "He soon put it to good use; and in 1834 he published the first part of his ‘Spécies'... This exquisitely illustrated iconography, started before the Sowerbys and Reeve began to issue theirs, appeared at intervals up to 1880, when eleven volumes had been completed" (Dance, A History of Shell Collecting). This volume covers several groups with generally large, and colourful species. The fine, hand-coloured plates by Maubert, Roch, De la Haye, and others are among the most beautiful illustrations ever published. Slight rubbing to the boards, a few sections in the text spotted, in particular that of pyrule, but generally rather clean; a few plates with some spots, but mostly clean. The colouring strong yet subtle, often bright, enhanced with gum arabic. Caprotti, p. 197; Dance, p. 137; Faber, pp. 64-65; Nissen ZBI, 2183.

In recent portfolio with paper boards and title on the spine.l A complete set of the scientific results of Alcide d'Orbigny's seven years of travel and exploration in South America is a true rarity, and even the individual parts are all very rare because the production of this work, which started two years after his return in 1835, took 15 years before completion. This is the near-complete atlas of the "Mollusques", with plates 1-76, 79-80, lacking only a few plates at the end, viz., 77-78, and 81-85. The final plates are often lacking. Most plates are in a very good condition, and extremely well-coloured. The numbering of plate 38 corrected to 36; the two different plates 41 corrected to 41a, and 41b (recte 41, 41bis). One plate with small paper loss in the margin. A very good, clean set of plates of this fabulous work. Nissen ZBI, 3021. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        BUNKER HILL DECLARATION. SEPTEMBER 10, 1840.

      [Boston?]: 1840 - Broadside, 23-1/2" x 18". Printed in four columns. Old folds, mild wear, Very Good. This rare broadside printing of the Declaration of Whig Principles, promulgated for the 1840 election, is the paradigmatic expression of Whig political culture. "To understand the Whigs, one must understand how they used language to exhort, persuade, and conciliate; one must also understand how their responses to the problems they faced were affected by their distinctive culture. One occasion will serve to illustrate all of these points. On September 10, 1840, fifty thousand Whigs [they claimed] rallied on Bunker Hill" [Howe]. Daniel Webster is the Declaration's author. [Fletcher Webster, 2 'The Writings and Speeches of Daniel Webster: Private Correspondence', page 597 (Boston: 1903); and 2 The Works of Daniel Webster, pp 41 et seq. (Boston: 1851)]. 1840 began the Whigs' prime decade of political influence. A national party, it was, in the Declaration's words, "capable of protecting all parts of the country, securing all interests." But its advocacy of "freedom of speech and of the press" was not mere pablum: Democrats had sought to suppress delivery of anti-slavery mailings into the South. The Democratic Administration of Andrew Jackson is marked by "the insinuations and influences of evil counsellors, or perhaps against his own passions, when moved and excited. Acting under his characteristic love of rule, and uneasiness under opposition," he chose to "enter upon measures which plunged both him and the country into greater and greater difficulties. the final explosion [The Panic of 1837] taking place a few months after his retirement from office." Jackson "trampled down and destroyed. a sound and uniform currency." His successor, Martin Van Buren, concurred in each Jacksonian policy-- truly a "catastrophe." The solution is a return to sound fiscal principles, disinterested patriotism, abandonment of the spoils system, and the election to the presidency of William Henry Harrison. OCLC 37435347 [3- NYHS, MA Hist. Soc., Peabody Inst.] [as of August 2016]. American Imprints records only the 12-page pamphlet printing. See, Daniel Walker Howe, The Political Culture of the American Whigs', page 2 [1984].
