        Die politisch-reformatorische Richtung der Deutschen im XVI. und XIX. Jahrhundert. Ein Beitrag zur Zeitgeschichte.

      Belle-Vue, Druck und Verlag der deutschen Volkshalle, 1841.. VIII, IV, 376 Seiten, 1 Bl. Leinenband der Zeit mit Rückenschild.. *Erste Ausgabe. - Bothien, Belle-Vue 128. - nicht bei Stammhammer u. Friedlaender. -"Ein Werk, das er selbst als den Inbegriff aller seiner bisher gedruckten Schriften bezeichnet. Es enthält eine kritische Betrachtung des Staats- und Verfassungsrechts der Deutschen in seiner Entwicklung, so wie besonders eine Vergleichung der staatsrechtlichen, socialen und politischen Zustände, die zu der reformatorischen Bewegung im 16. und 19. Jahrhundert hindrängten. Als hauptsächliche Ursache dieser unerquicklichen Zustände sieht W. in beiden Zeitaltern die Vernichtung der Reichsgewalt oder der Nationaleinheit an, deren Wiederherstellung das erste Hauptwerk jener Bewegungen sein sollte; er fordert deshalb auch einmüthiges Zusammenstehen des Volkes zum Kampfe gegen dessen Bedrücker und gegen die Anmaßungen Frankreichs dem zerstückelten Deutschland gegenüber" (ADB). - Die Resonanz auf das Werk war von allen Seiten ablehnend, in Preussen wurde das Buch verboten. Laut Bothien büßte der Verf. mehrere hundert Gulden an den Verlagskosten ein. Leicht gebräunt, insgesamt gut erhalten.

        Essai sur les Glaciers et sur le Terrain Erratique du Bassin du Rhone

      One large folding hand-tinted map (tear neatly repaired without loss), 8 lithographic plates (one folding), & text illus. 2 p.l., x, 363 (i.e. 362) pp., one leaf of errata. 8vo, orig. printed upper wrapper bound in cont. half-cloth & marbled boards, spine gilt. Lausanne: M. Ducloux, 1841. First edition. This is a classic work on the phenomenon of erratic blocks and the function of glaciers in transporting them. Charpentier's theory, delivered in a paper in 1834, was met with disbelief and scorn. "Undismayed, Charpentier continued his observations and invited the incredulous to visit him and see the evidence for themselves. Among his visitors was Louis Agassiz, who was soon carried away with such enthusiasm for the theory of the Ice Age that he visited a number of glaciers and blocks and rushed into print, ahead of Charpentier, with his Études sur les Glaciers (1840)...Charpentier received Agassiz' book on 28 October 1840, three days before he finished his own Essai sur les Glaciers, which was published in February 1841. The scrupulous care with which he weighed the evidence and described the phenomenon of erratic blocks and the function of glaciers in transporting them makes this book a classic."-D.S.B., III, p. 211. While Agassiz is generally credited with the origin of the theory of the Ice Age, the theory had in fact been developed long before by Charpentier. Very nice copy with a presentation inscription from the author on the upper wrapper: "à Monsieur Schwedler hommage de l'auteur" (the final four letters of "auteur" have been cropped by the binder's knife). .

        Two Years Before the Mast A Personal Narrative of Life At Sea

      London Bradbury and Evans 1841 - Rare English Edition of Two Years Before the Mast DANA, Richard Henry, Jr. Two Years Before the Mast. A Personal Narrative of Life At Sea London: Bradbury and Evans, [N.d., ca. 1841]. Rare English edition. Small quarto. 124 pp. Printed in double columns like the first English edition, published by Moxon but this copy is on better quality paper. Advertisement dated Aug. 1, 1841, Dana's Birthday. Only 1 copy came up at auction that was a presentation copy in unbound sheets. This copy does not have an imprint on verso of title as first English, but it had Bradbury and Evans imprint at end. Therefore, it is possible(?) that this was a printer's proof copy or pirated copy. Bound in modern half calf over marbled boards, stamped in black on spine. Stamp of "Henry Samuel" on a few pages. Foxing to the first few leaves, otherwise fine. "Dana, a man of great energy, wrote Two Years before the Mast and taught elocution at Harvard while attending classes there. His book, published in 1840, was an immediate success in the United States and in England, and it permanently influenced works about the sea, making their authors both more realistic about and also more cognizant of the common sailor's plight. About thirty books with titles echoing Dana's were published by 1860. The most notable literary beneficiary was Herman Melville, who in Chapter 24 of White-Jacket (1850) calls Two Years before the Mast "unmatchable" and whose Moby-Dick (1851) shows several traces of its influence.

        Plan zur Grundung einer sachsischen Colonie in den Vereinigten Staaten von Nord Amerika : Colonie Wettin

      [Leipzig ]: B G Teubner, [ 1841 ] First Edition. A very good copy. 4to.,.A prospectus for establishing a German colony between Pittsburgh and Lake Erie. The plan consisted of acquiring 12,000 acres of land and selling units of land ( each colonist was allowed a 6 acre plot of land and another site in the proposed city that was 60 x 120 feet). All of the land was to be subscribed prior to 1843. Certain critical skills were to be recruited for the colony with the inducement of free land for those first to sign up to emigrate (teachers, doctors, carpenters etc.). The map of the colony was to be prepared by the German travel writer and geographer Traugott Bromme who was a co-sponsor of the plan. The printed plan is very detailed as to rights and responsibilities of each colonist.

        Abstract of the First and Second Reports of the Select Committee of the House of Commons on South Australia with An Abridgement of the Oral and Documentary Evidence

      London: printed for the South Australian Society by J.C. Hailes, 1841. Slim octavo, folding frontispiece map, a fine copy recent polished quarter calf, rubbed. Early reports from Adelaide. Most uncommon: early reports on South Australia with an interesting map of the region. The House of Commons select committee was charged with reporting on the perilous financial state of South Australia. Their findings were critical of the management of the South Australian Company and its chairman George French Angas. The present publication summarises the longer parliamentary reports for the convenience of shareholders in the company. The final leaf prints the statistics of the colony, while on the verso a number of advertisements relating to the South Australia Company and emigration are printed. This copy is from the library of religious activist and company shareholder Sir Culling Eardley Smith, with his details to the front blank endpaper and the note "to be returned" (effectively confirming that this was not fully published).

        New Zealand, South Australia, and New South Wales : A record of recent travels in these colonies, with especial reference to emigration

      London: Smith, Elder and Co, 1841. Octavo, with engraved frontispiece, single plate and two folding maps, a lovely copy in the publisher's green blind blocked boards with gilt spine lettering. Good early material on New Zealand. First edition of 1841, with the undated title-page. 'Pleasant account of a ten months' visit to the Bay of Islands and Thames district in 1839-40, at the beginning of colonisation. Good description of Kororareka and its life; sale of Busby's township of Victoria; Treaty of Waitangi; Bishop Pompallier; defends the missionaries from Dr. Lang's charges; life of early settlers in the Thames and Waitemata; principal timber trees and flax; account of Adelaide and Sydney' (Hocken). This copy corresponds to the collation given by Ferguson 3232, with two maps and two engraved plates (including the frontispiece). Hocken's assertion that only the second edition of 1842 contains the maps is incorrect. The NZNB corrects Hocken's error, although for this first edition it records the frontispiece only and does not note the second plate.

        Mr. Barlow's Magnicent Exhibition Hobart Town, Van Dieman's Land , Sydney, New South Wales Painted on the Spot by the Proprietor & Assistants at an Immense Expense. Is now open at 33, Red Lion Square, Holborn

      London, 1841. Printed hand-bill, 190 x 125 mm; fine. Australian panorama on show in London. A charming and very rare survival, advertising one of the earliest Australian panoramas to be shown in London. The work, by Edward Barlow but borrowing heavily from the Tasmanian Thomas Peck, was based on the contraption invented by the Frenchman Thiodon, who used mechanical devices, models, and lighting to create a sort of motion picture or "mechanical theatre". A smash wherever it was promoted, Barlow had some success in Sydney with the show, which must have encouraged him to take it to London. Such handbills, the most fugitive of printed history, are almost unrecorded, and we do not know of another example relating to Barlow's show. In 1833 George Peck created the "Theatre of Arts" in Hobart, basing it on Thiodon's theatre from London; he described the effect as 'forming a charming coup d'oeil, that will delight and surprise the beholder.' Peck's theatre had tremendous success for several years (see a terrific article by Robyn Lake, 'Adventures in Cybersound', online), but at some time seems to have been sold or leased to Barlow, who had arrived in Sydney on board the Lord Goderich in 1836. An arts entrepreneur, whilst in Sydney he tried his hand at a range of professions including lithographer, printer, architect and surveyor. In turn, Peck arrived in Sydney in 1838, and Barlow took over and hosted his own exhibition in Sydney in 1840. Whilst retaining many of the scenes, Barlow commissioned the scene painter George Keough to create Drop Scenes with more 'local content', presumably views and subjects relating to Sydney and surrounding area. The Sydney Herald reviewed the exhibition on 11 May 1840: 'We recommend all who have not seen this amusing exhibition to pay a visit forthwith. The scenery is, generally speaking well painted, and the automation works admirably. The price of admission is moderate, one and six pence for front seats and one shilling for back seats… The view of the Royal Hotel in flames is a vivid representation of that calamity.' In 1841 Barlow took the exhibition to London and exhibited it in his rooms at 33 Red Lion Square, where it also appears to have run for several months. An article appeared in the Sydney Gazette (12 February 1842) which notes 'We perceive by the late English Newspapers, that E.D. Barlow, formerly of the Theatre of Arts, Bridge Street Sydney, is exhibiting in London his panoramic views of Sydney and its environs, and of Hobart Town with Mount Wellington in the distance. Mr.Barlow has also had printed flaming hand-bills, setting forth the numerous beauties of the different localities depicted in his panorama, and containing quotations from the Sydney journals in proof of the accuracy of the representations. The exhibition and Mr.Peck's model of Hobart Town must give the English public a better idea of the extent of the capitals of New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land than it is possible to convey by any description.'.

        Twelve views in the interior of Guiana: from drawings executed by Mr. Charles Bentley, after sketches during the expedition carried on in the years 1835 to 1839

      1841 - First edition, a monumental work with 12 coloured lithographed plates on Guiana and Brazil. 1841. London. Ackermann and co. In folio (518 mm x 355 mm). 5 ff. [including frontispiece] + 38 + map + 12 plates. Near contemporary olive morocco gilt, boards with pebbled cloth sides, gilt fillets in neo-classical style, spine lettered and tooled in gilt, a little rubbed, restored. A very clean and bright copy, with scattered foxing spots, generally excellent. First edition. A monumental work on Guiana and the North of Brazil, illustrated with 12 large coloured lithographed plates by George Barnard, Coke Smith and P. Gauci after Bentley and a lithographed title by M. Gauci after Bentley –who took them from James Morrison, the expedition draughtsman. “This album is quite rare” (Borba de Moraes). Shomburgk (1804 – 1865), British explorer and protégé of Alexander von Humboldt, on his return, was awarded the RGS Gold Medal for his scientific work, mainly the sending of the Victoria Regia waterlily –today known as Victoria Amazonica- to England. He also suggested a border between Venezuela and Guiana and laid down a division, later named after him “Schomburgk line”; eventually the British government used his explorations “as arguments in the boundary dispute with Brazil”, which he recommended by his encounters with Brazilian enslavement of local Indian tribes. The plates are, amongst others: a map Guyana, additional title featuring the giant Victoria Regia waterlily, the Comuti or Taquiare Rock, River Essequibo, Ataraipu or the Devils Rock, Pirara and Lake Amucu, Roraima, Esmeralda on the Orinoco, Brazilian Fort of St Gabriel, Christmas Cataract, Watu Ticaba, Junction of the Kundanama with the Paramu, and Caribi Village. The Esmeralda and Ataraipu plates are arguably some of the most beautiful iconographic renderings of the region. Abbey, Travel, 720. Borba de Moraes, 782. Sabin, 77796.

        Georg Heinrich Crola mit schwarzem Hut im Profil nach links.

      . Bleistift, auf chamoisfarbenem Velin, links unten bezeichnet "Crola vor 22 Jahren 1841". Ca. 17,3:7,7 cm. In den Rändern ungleich beschnitten. Etwas fleckig. Vergleichsliteratur: Ausst. Kat.: Elise Crola - Romantische Zeichnungen, bearb. von Gerd Ilte, Galerie 1530, Kulturstiftung Wernigerode, Wernigerode 2008, S. 4.. Elise Crola, Tochter eines Bankiers, wuchs in einem künstlerisch-musisch orientierten Elternhaus auf. Hier verkehrten neben Wissenschaftlern auch Maler und Bildhauer wie W. von Schadow (1788-1862), Chr.D. Rauch (1777-1857), C.J. Begas (1794-1854), C.W. Wach (1787-1845) und ihr Vetter E.J.F. Bendemann (1811-1889), der spätere Direktor der Dresdner Gemäldegalerie. Ihre Eltern förderten die künstlerische Begabung ihrer Tochter - auch Schadow, der sie in jungen Jahre porträtiert hatte ("Die Poesie"), empfahl ihren Eltern, das Talent ihrer Tochter zu fördern. So erhielt sie früh Zeichenunterricht durch den Porträt- und Miniaturmaler J.F. Zimmermann (tätig 1796-1838). Im Alter von 18 Jahren heiratete sie den vierzehn Jahre älteren Baron K.H.L. von Weiher; die kinderlose Ehe wurde 1836 auf Drängen ihrer Familie und gegen ihren Willen geschieden. Kurz darauf lernte sie in Berlin den Maler Georg Heinrich Crola (1804-1879) kennen, sie trafen sich wieder in Ilsenburg, wo sie sich bevorzugt aufhielt, und heirateten 1840. Gemeinsam entschied man, in Ilsenburg sesshaft zu werden und erwarb schließlich 1847 ein großes Haus. Obwohl sie fünf Kinder gebar, unternahm sie gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann nicht nur zahlreiche Fahrten nach Berlin, Dresden und auf die Insel Rügen, sondern auch nach Dänemark, Schweden und in die Alpen. Zudem führten sie in Ilsenburg ein reges gesellschaftliches Leben. Zu ihren Künstlerfreunden zählten u.a. P. von Cornelius (1783-1867), L. Richter (1803-1884) und W. von Kügelgen (1802-1867). Elise zeigte zudem ein ausgeprägtes soziales Engagement und wurde zur Wohltäterin der Alten und Armen. Nicht näher zu spezifizierende Beschwerden zwangen sie jedoch zu Reisen, z.B. eine vermutlich anderthalbjährige Reise gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann 1854 in die Schweiz. Auch zwei längere Aufenthalte in Italien zwecks Erholung sind zu belegen. Ihr künstlerisches Schaffen, sie arbeitete meist mit dem Bleistift, selten in Aquarell, wird von figürlichen Themen, Porträts, Tierdarstellungen, Veduten und Landschaften bestimmt. Daneben betätigte sie sich bildhauerisch (Porträts). Später bemalte sie auch Porzellane und Gebrauchsgegenstände. Im Hüttenmuseum Ilsenburg wurde Ende der 1990er Jahre eine Crola-Stube eingerichtet.

        The Sandwich Islands: a Prize Poem , Recited in the Theatre, Oxford; June 15, 1841

      Oxford: J.Vincent, 1841. Disbound octavo gathering, 16pp., a few spots yet a fine copy. From Hawaii to Oxford. A quaint romantic idyll devoted to the Hawaiian islands presented for an Oxford poetry prize in 1841. The poem offers a potted history of Polynesian life upon the archipelago, speculating on their mythical origins and lamenting native customs such as human sacrifice and infanticide and applauding the arrival of Missionary Christianity. The author clearly has more than a superficial understanding of Hawaii, as revealed in scholarly footnotes peppered throughout this slim pamphlet (although Forbes dryly notes in the Hawaiian National Bibliography that 'The author does not seem to have enjoyed subsequent success as a poet').

Duhaut-Cilly was a French trader who reached Yerba Buena in 1827, and in the next two years visited most of the missions, presidios, and pueblos of Alta California. No other traveller had visited so many of the Californian establishments, and his is the best contemporary account of the region. He also describes at some length his 1828 visit to the Hawaiian Islands, and includes a vocabulary of the Hawaiian language. The plates show San Francisco, San Luis Rey, Fort Ross and Hawaii. This is the second edition of the book, much expanded with additional chapters from its first appearance in French in 1834, which is now extremely rare (John Howell Books conjectured in their catalogue 50 that only about a dozen copies survive); there has never been an English edition. The book evidently struck a chord in Italy: another edition appeared in Naples in 1842. 'This is an important edition… It includes, for the first time, in book form, an essay by Dr. Paolo Emilio Botta, Osservazioni sugli abitanti delle isole Sandwich e della California (Observations on the inhabitants of the Sandwich Islands and California). His Hawaiian observations are on pp. 339-359, followed by an Italian-Hawaiian vocabulary… and a list of Hawaiian numerals. Dr Botta's observations on California [are] also new to this edition…' (Forbes). Duhaut-Cilly's work was one of the eighty books selected by the Zamorano Club in California for their famous exhibition of books important for the history of that state. Appropriately, this copy once belonged to the club and has their duplicate release note over the club's bookplate in each volume.

        Noah Webster pens a letter, <I>"I take the liberty to direct a small box of books to your care, with a request that you would keep it safe & deliver it to...an agent of mine, who will be in Worcester in a few days"</I>, the very year he publishes the first revised version of his classic "An American Dictionary of the English Language"

      Autograph Letter Signed, "N Webster", dated November 3, 1841, New Haven, 7" X 4.5" visible, attractively displayed beneath a G. Parker engraved image of the Noah Webster portrait painted by James Herring, the same painting from which the 1958 commemorative 4 cent postage stamp was fashioned. The ALS and image are matted and framed to an overall size of 13" X 17". The letter reads, "I take the liberty to direct a small box of books to your care, with a request that you would keep it safe & deliver it to a Wm McMahon, an agent of mine, who will be in Worcester in a few days. If any expense is incurred, it shall be punctually repaid. / Respectfully yours / N Webster". The word "a" has a small ink smear, otherwise the letter is visibly fine. Noah Webster was seventy years old when he first published "An American Dictionary of the English Language" in 1828, and the dictionary immediately became an industry standard. Thirteen years later, in 1841, at the age of eighty-three, the ye

        Viagem ao interior da Nova Hollanda, obra moral, critica e recreativa

      Lisbon: Vicente Jorge de Castro, 1841. Three volumes bound in one, small octavo; some wear to the edges of the boards and a library reference at head of spine, a few spots but an attractive copy in contemporary quarter calf. Portuguese public servant&#39;s imaginary voyage to the interior. A rare Portuguese imaginary voyage to Australia, not recorded by most of the commentators on the genre. In Viagem ao interior da Nòva Hollanda the anonymous Portuguese narrator, tired of the &#39;pernicioso contágio da imoralidade&#39; (pernicious contagion of immorality) which is afflicting his homeland, travels from Liverpool to New South Wales in 1836 as manservant to a lord. He spends several years in the colony, and travels extensively in the interior. Fulsome descriptions of the social life of Sydney and the beauties of Australia are used, particularly in the description of the utopian &#39;Vale da Razão&#39; (Valley of Reason). The society, which is somewhere between a &#39;pure&#39; and &#39;representative&#39; monarchy, is ruled by a Grand Council, half of the members of which are elected by householders of both sexes regardless of class, and the other half by the monarch. Ferguson comments on the narrator&#39;s hope that &#39;this new nation will be forever free from the vices of the old world&#39;. Aguiar makes the point that his choice of Australia for the setting of his utopia is entirely arbitrary. He admits to no knowledge of the region he has chosen, and in his prologue, unlike the more conventional utopias, he takes pains to explain that he has no wish to fool the reader into believing that such a journey ever actually took place. Little is known of Vasco José de Aguiar (died October 1855) except that he was secretary of the Conselho de Saude Publica do Reino (Public Health Board) in Lisbon. In his spare time he was the author of two utopian narratives, Viagem ao interior da Nòva Hollanda (below) and Verdades Sonhadas (True Dreams), the latter being a collection of short tales, one of which is a grim satire on human folly and moral corruption in the form of an interplanetary voyage.

The need for such a map was recognized as early as the mid-18th century but the necessary research was not encouraged until after Greenough&#39;s six-part geological map of England was published in 1820. "Stimulated by the publication of Greenough&#39;s geological map of England, Brochant de Villiers was successful in gaining authorization for the preparation of a similar map of France. Dufrénoy and Élie de Beaumont were selected to carry out the necessary fieldwork and in 1822 were sent to England for two years to learn Greenough&#39;s procedures."-D.S.B., IV, p. 218. Their map of France, commenced in 1825, was completed in 1840. It consists of six sheets on the scale of about eight miles to one inch. "This great work, so rapidly carried out, remains a remarkable monument of the genius of the two geologists under whose supervision it was constructed."-Geikie, The Founders of Geology, p. 456. This map is now of very great rarity. The first two volumes of the explanatory text were published by the two geologists in 1841 and 1848, respectively. "The 100-page introduction to the latter is still the best that can be placed at the beginning of modern treatises on physical geography."-D.S.B., IV, p. 349.

        Das nationale System der politischen Oekonomie &#133;

      Stuttgart & Tübingen: J. G. Cotta,, 1841. Erster Band [all published]. Der internationale Handel, die Handelspolitik und der deutsche Zollverein. Octavo (185 × 112 mm). Contemporary half calf, marbled boards, calf corners, spine lettered and decorated gilt. Contemporary ownership inscription to front free endpaper. Occasional light pencil side ruling and marginalia. An excellent copy. First edition of List&#39;s major work. One of the earliest and most severe critics of the classical school of political economy, List (1789&#150;1846) "denounced Adam Smith and his disciples as the &#39;cosmopolitan school&#39; and held that universal free trade was an ideal that could be achieved only in the far distant future. For the time being, he argued, each nation should foster the development of its own manufactures by import duties and even outright prohibitions. Only by such means could countries like Germany, Russia and the United States ever hope to achieve the industrial efficiency that would enable them to compete on equal terms with Britain. List never used the term &#39;infant industry&#39; but the infant industry argument is clearly what he had in mind because he specifically excluded agriculture from all his protectionist arguments and even conceded that global free trade was an ultimate desirable goal &#133; In recent times, List has been hailed not so much as a spokesman for protectionism as a champion of the ambitions of underdeveloped countries. No doubt he was one of the first to recognise the role of national power in the international division of labour and present-day advocates of the dependency school of economic development may legitimately regard him as a forerunner" (Blaug, Great Economists before Keynes, p. 129f).

        Journals of Two Expeditions of Discovery in North-west and Western Australia, during the years 1837, 38, and 39

      London: T. and W. Boone, 1841. Two volumes, octavo, with 22 plates (six handcoloured), and two large loose folding maps, illustrations in the text; endpapers renewed, related newspaper clippings circa 1900 pasted to last blank of second volume; a most attractive set in the publisher&#39;s decorated purple cloth. With the famous Wandjina plates. A fascinating account of coastal and inland exploration of the north-west coast of Western Australia and the Kimberley region. Captain Grey&#39;s account is both informative and accessible, featuring a rich selection of plates including stunning images of Wandjina paintings from the north-western Kimberley. Furthermore, the work is esteemed for its scientific appendices: on birds by John Gould; on mammals, reptiles, amphibians by John Edward Gray; and insects by Adam White. The two-volume set contains the accounts of both expeditions led by Grey, the first along the West Australian coast and the second in the north-west. Although beset by natural disasters, diminished provisions, exhaustion, shipwreck and numerous attacks by local Aboriginal tribes, Grey and his men made important discoveries in this vast and poorly charted wilderness. Despite turbulent relations with Aboriginal tribes Grey was fascinated by the art and cultures he encountered. In this respect his Journals of Two Expeditions of Discovery form a valuable record of early contact in Western Australia and the Kimberley. Grey was intrigued by the ghostly rock paintings he discovered and became the first white man to see a Wandjina painting at a site on the Glenelg River in the Kimberley. He wrote &#39;looking over some bushes, at the sandstone rocks which were above us, I suddenly saw from one of them a most extraordinary large figure peering down upon me. Upon examination, this proved to be a drawing at the entrance to cave, which, on entering, I found to contain, besides, many remarkable paintings&#39;. Realising the significance of the discovery, he went to considerable lengths to sketch, measure and describe the figures, which are printed here as four arresting lithographic plates. The first volume of this set conforms to the first issue points noted in Australian Rare Books while the second volume includes additional publisher&#39;s advertisements indicating a later issue.

        Viaggio intorno al globo principalmente alla California ed alle isole Sandwich negli anni 1826, 1827, 1828 e 1829

      Turin: Stabilimento Tipografico Fontana, 1841. Two volumes, octavo, four wood-engraved plates, errata page present at end of first volume; some scattered foxing, a really handsome copy in the original printed boards, a little rubbed and some staining to second volume. With additional material on Hawaii and California. First appearance in this important Italian translation, much expanded with additional chapters from its first appearance in French in 1834, which is now very rare: &#39;an important edition of the Duhaut-Cilly narrative&#39; (Forbes). Duhaut-Cilly was a French navigator and trader who sailed extensively in the Pacific during his 1826-1829 circumnavigation. He traded along the Californian coast (with no great success, despite being admitted to all of the Catholic missions), and spent several months in the Hawaiian Islands, where King Kamehameha III dined with him aboard ship. The translation into Italian was by Carlo Giuseppe Botta, whose son, Paulo Emilio Botta, was the doctor aboard Duahut-Cilly&#39;s vessel Héros. This edition is particularly desirable as it includes an &#39;Italiano/Sandwiccese&#39; vocabulary, which includes several pages of common words of the Hawaiian language, as well as Botta&#39;s own essay, "Observations on the inhabitants of the Sandwich Islands and California". The plates include views of Oahu and Monterey. This is a particularly attractive copy of the book in the rare printed wrappers. Forbes noted only two other copies with the original wrappers (Bishop Museum and the Tice Phillips copy), and this copy is identical, including showing the date 1843 on the cover. A further edition appeared in Naples the following year.

        Viaggio intorno al globo principalmente alla California ed alle isole Sandwich negli anni 1826, 1827, 1828 e 1829?

      Tipografico Fontana, Turin 1841 - Two volumes, octavo, with four lithograph plates; a very good copy in old marbled boards, sympathetically rebacked. First Italian edition and very scarce: a most important book for California and Hawaii. Duhaut-Cilly was a French trader who reached Yerba Buena in 1827, and in the next two years visited most of the missions, presidios, and pueblos of Alta California. No other traveller had visited so many of the Californian establishments, and his is the best contemporary account of the region. He also describes at some length his 1828 visit to the Hawaiian Islands, and includes a vocabulary of the Hawaiian language. The plates show San Francisco, San Luis Rey, Fort Ross and Hawaii. This is the second edition of the book, much expanded with additional chapters from its first appearance in French in 1834, which is now extremely rare (John Howell Books conjectured in their catalogue 50 that only about a dozen copies survive); there has never been an English edition. The book evidently struck a chord in Italy: another edition appeared in Naples in 1842. 'This is an important edition? It includes, for the first time, in book form, an essay by Dr. Paolo Emilio Botta, Osservazioni sugli abitanti delle isole Sandwich e della California (Observations on the inhabitants of the Sandwich Islands and California). His Hawaiian observations are on pp. 339-359, followed by an Italian-Hawaiian vocabulary? and a list of Hawaiian numerals. Dr Botta's observations on California [are] also new to this edition?' (Forbes). Duhaut-Cilly's work was one of the eighty books selected by the Zamorano Club in California for their famous exhibition of books important for the history of that state. Appropriately, this copy once belonged to the club and has their duplicate release note over the club's bookplate in each volume. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
