        Bernardinu Saimpierru diegemata, etoi Ta kata Paulon kai Birginian, He Indike kalybe, He Lesche tes Surates, kai Periegesis tes Silesias [ Traduction en grec moderne de Paul et Virginie suivi de La chaumière indienne, Le Café de Surate et le Voyage en Silésie ]

      Adelphoi Phirminoi Didotoi [ Firmin Didot Frères ] 1841 - Adelphoi Phirminoi Didotoi [ Firmin Didot Frères, Paris, Athènes ], 1841, 9ff., 375 pp., 2 ff. Très rare exemplaire de la seconde traduction en grec moderne de Bernardin de Saint-Pierre établie par le docteur Nicolas Spyridon Piccolos (l'édition originale, parue chez le même éditeur en petit format, date de 1824). Bon exemplaire (très bon état). "Au nombre des publications grecques que reproduit avec tant de libéralité et de zèle l’honorable librairie de M. Firmin Didot, il en est une qui mérite d’être relevée et où se trouve plus d’une particularité qu’on n’irait pas y chercher. M. le docteur Piccolos a traduit depuis bien des années déjà, Paul et Virginie en grec moderne ; il vient d’en donner une seconde édition fort corrigée et augmentée. Cette traduction ainsi que les autres travaux de M. Piccolos a pour but d’aider à la culture littéraire de ses compatriotes, et de rendre à la langue grecque moderne l’habitude d’exprimer des images et des idées dont elle avait trop perdu le maniement. En s’éloignant de sa source classique et en passant par une sorte de moyen-âge, la langue grecque s’est nécessairement altérée, elle s’est surtout appauvrie ; il s’agit de lui restituer toute son étendue et sa souplesse. M. Piccolos témoin du réveil de l’indépendance, ancien professeur de philosophie à l’académie de Corfou, n’a cessé, pour son compte, de travailler à cette espèce de restitution classique de la plus noble des langues". "Ce que nous avons surtout à relever aujourd’hui dans la seconde édition de son Paul et Virginie, ce sont les notes, les remarques ingénieuses sur l’œuvre même, et quelques points de littérature française véritablement aperçus pour la première fois. Que Bernardin de Saint-Pierre ait eu un très vif sentiment de l’antiquité, c’est ce que tout le monde voit d’abord et ce que tous les critiques ont exprimé ; mais M. Piccolos a curieusement noté toutes les imitations probables que le grand écrivain a faites ou pu faire des passages anciens, et dans le nombre il y en a d’avérées" (Revue des Deux Mondes, 1841, XXVII, 989) Langue: Grec [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Sidon, Looking Towards Lebanon from Views in the Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt and Nubia.

      F.G. Moon 1842-49, London 1841 - The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia David Roberts, R. A. (1796-1864) a successful London-based Scottish artist, in 1838 traveled throughout the Middle East to record the cities, people, landscape, and monuments of the Holy Land and Egypt. Returning to England, he and lithographer Louis Haghe published a hand-colored six volume set of his works covering Egypt and Nubia and the Holy Land. The plates in these volumes are the most beautiful and accurate depictions of the Near East ever created in the nineteenth century; 'The Holy Land' both instructs and delights, with superb ethnological descriptions, sweeping panoramic landscapes, and detailed architectural studies.

        Salopia Antiqua

      London and Cambridge, 1841 First edition, one of only a few copies on large paper, imperial 8vo, 640 pp, errata slip tipped in at the back, inserted chromo-lithograph title-p. Heightened in gold, 8 lithograph plates, decorative initials throughout, later full polished tan calf, elaborate gilt spine, quadruple gilt borders on covers, fleurons in the corners, the others uncut, very minor rubbing, (vii), [1], (xxii), 640 pp, 8pl. A lovely copy, nicely bound! (see Allibone, Avery AR42, Dariow, Lowndes 1007) Salopia antiqua, a genuinely original archaeological synopsis which may still be consulted with profit, was founded on an extensive and vigorous exploration of his native county: in 1837 he wrote (to Way) describing long tramps, of 30–50 miles daily, over the Shropshire hills. The book was in some respects pioneering, for example in its inclusion of material on dialect and place names which were anticipations of later, more systematic work by Georgina F. Jackson and others. Much of his work, however, contains errors and internal inconsistencies, and is characterized, according to one modern assessment, by ‘wide learning and shallow scholarship’ (Hunt, 31). See ODNB for a full Bio.

        The Wild Sports of Southern Africa;

      London: Pelham Richardson,, 1841. being the Narrative of an Expedition from the Cape of Good Hope through the Territories of the Chief Moselekatse, to the Tropic of Capricorn. Fourth Edition. Octavo. Original pinkish-brown, finely diapered cloth, title gilt to the spine within an attractively scrolled frame, upper board with a large block of a lion, giraffe, elephant, and wildebeest within an arabesqued foliate panel, bold corner-pieces of similar design in blind, the whole repeated in blind to the lower board, all edges gilt, pale cream surface-paper endpapers. Hand-coloured lithographic frontispiece, vignette half-title, and 24 plates, folding map with route marked in red. The spine sunned, corners a little bumped, some slight spotting to the upper board, hinges tight, plates with very pale browning, and occasional off-set to the tissue-guards, one or two minor spots of foxing , but overall a really very good copy indeed in the attractive original cloth. First published in Bombay in 1838, this edition follows the third, and best, of 1841, having two additional chapters - "giving a full account of the massacre of Retief and his party by Dingan, the fall of Piet Uys …, the death of Maritz, and the annihilation of the Natal settlers." (Mendelssohn) - and 26 "wonderful coloured plates of African game and scenery" (Czech). Harris was commissioned in the Bombay Engineers in 1823, promoted captain in 1834 and major in 1836. Invalided to South Africa for two years, on the voyage out he joined up with Richard Williamson, a Bombay civil servant, deciding to undertake a big game hunting expedition. "Harris journeyed to the Meritsane River where he encountered a herd of quaggas and brindled 'gnoos' he estimated at 15,000 head. He bagged eland and was attacked by lion in the region. Crossing the Mariqua River, he hunted ostrich and white rhinoceros. Entering the Cashan Mountains, he collected elephant, the proceeded to the Limpopo Valley where he hunted buffalo and hippopotamus, with additional sport after giraffe, black rhinoceros, sable, and lion. Harris's work is valuable as it presents a detailed picture of the South African game fields prior to the growing pressure of civilization." Howgego remarks that "Although primarily a hunting expedition, Harris covered much ground not seen before by Europeans, and on his way to the Vaal discovered the source of the Marique River, one of the head-waters of the Limpopo". A really unusually well-preserved copy of this handsome book.

        THE NORTH AMERICAN SYLVA; OR, A DESCRIPTION OF THE FOREST TREES OF THE UNITED STATES, CANADA, AND NOVA SCOTIA

      New Harmony, In. & Philadelphia. [1841]-1842.. Three volumes, complete with 156 color plates. Quarto. Antique-style in three-quarter morocco, gilt, raised bands, and marbled boards. Minor scattered foxing to text. Plates generally clean and fresh. Unobtrusive 19th-century private owner blindstamp on each title. Untrimmed, a near fine copy. The extremely rare first American edition of François Michaux's towering work on American trees, printed by William Amphlett at the utopian society of New Harmony, Indiana. The work was originally printed in Paris in 1817-19 by D'Hautel. In 1825 the 156 copper plates were purchased by the geologist William Maclure. At the time, Maclure had plans to develop an agricultural school in New Harmony, based on socialistic principles. He provided the plates of Michaux's work, which were printed and colored in Philadelphia, and gave financial backing to the New Harmony publishers. Work commenced on this edition sometime around 1829 and it took more than twelve years to complete. This is also the first edition to which Thomas Nuttall's supplementary volumes were later added, not present with this copy. While the Nuttall supplement is described on the titlepage, it had yet to be published when the Michaux was issued. This publication is the most important work on American trees prior to the 20th century. It is the product of the efforts of two of the greatest naturalists to work in 19th-century America, François A. Michaux and Thomas Nuttall. The beautifully executed plates illustrate leaves and nuts or berries of American trees across the entire continent. Sabin says of the work, "It is no exaggeration to remark that it is the most complete work of its kind, and is a production of unrivalled interest and beauty." Michaux's work was based on his extensive travels in the eastern half of America, and those of his father, from the 1790s on. Both men were friendly with Jefferson and other leading figures, who aided them in their work and travels. His book was first published with a Philadelphia imprint in 1817-19, although actually printed in Paris, where the plates were engraved as well. These plates were executed by the great French flower painters, Redouté and his associate, Bessa. The sheets of the first effort at reprinting the work were destroyed by fire, but the copper plates were separately stored and survived to be employed in this edition. A very good set of a classic of American natural history. All the products of the New Harmony press are rare, and this edition of NORTH AMERICAN SYLVA... is exceedingly rare. Ian MacPhail, in his bibliography of Michaux, locates only four copies of this printing. BENNETT, p.76. BYRD & PECKHAM 942. MacPHAIL, ANDRÉ & FRANÇOIS-ANDRÉ MICHAUX 21a. MEISEL III, p.436 (ref).

        Autograph Letter in Secretarial Hand Signed by Hammer-Purgstall to "Charles Fellows, Esquire" Regarding the Latter's Book.

      Vienna 1841 - Vienna, 12 January 1841. Quarto (ca. 25x20,5 cm). 2 pp. Brown ink on watermarked laid paper. Clear and complete text in secretarial hand, signed by "Your obedient much servant J. Hammer-Purgstall". Addressed, sealed and with the postal stamps on the 4th page. Paper soiled and slightly worn on folds, a hole on the 4th page after opening, not affecting the text, overall a very good letter. Fine example of a scientific correspondence between two European Orientalists: Joseph Freiherr von Hammer-Purgstall, founder and the first president of the Austrian Academy of Sciences (1847-1849) and British archaeologist and traveller in Asia Minor Sir Charles Fellows (1799-1860). In the letter Hammer-Purgstall informs his correspondent, that Mr Arneth, director of the Vienna Imperial Cabinet of Antics "has just transmitted to me in a small box sealed with the seal of the cabinet, the cast of all the coins which you desire and which the cabinet is possessed of. I'll deliver this small box immediately at our Secretary of State's office, to be forwarded with the next messenger". He advices Fellows about the fastest way of the parcel's delivery to London and later notes: "If you mention in our work the Vienna coins, be so good as to record Mr. Arneth's name in order to encourage him to further communications of this kind. I am myself eager for the appearance of your work, of which I promise myself much pleasure and information". The letter most likely relates to one of the Fellows' works about the archaeology of ancient Lycia: "An Account of Discoveries in Lycia, being a Journal kept during a Second Excursion in Asia Minor", published later that year, or "Coins of Ancient Lycia before the Reign of Alexander; with an Essay on the Relative Dates of the Lycian Monuments in the British Museum" (1855).

        Autograph Letter Signed "W. Parry" to "My dear Buxton" regarding the Ale Supply for the Niger Expedition 1841-42; With: Lithographed Portrait of William Parry].

      1841 - Admiralty, 8 December 4[1]. Small Octavo (ca. 17,5x10,5 cm). 1 p. Brown ink on watermarked laid paper. Written on verso of the official note from the Controller of Victualling Department of the Royal Navy, dated "Admiralty, Somerset House, 6 December 1841". Paper aged toned, mild fold marks, otherwise a very good letter. Portrait: lithograph on paper, ca. 1830-s, ca. 9,5x7,5 cm; lithographed titled and printer's address on the lower margin. An interesting item of the Niger Expedition 1841-1842, this letter from the famous Arctic explorer Sir Edward Parry, was written when he was a high ranking Admiralty official. The letter is addressed to Charles Buxton (1823-1871), English brewer, philanthropist, and Member of Parliament, the letter concerns the ale supplies for the participating steamers. It was Charles' father, Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton (1786-1845), a noted British politician and abolitionist, who was the initiator of the expedition. Parry forwards Buxton the official answer from the Royal Navy "Controller of Victualling" which says that "the Ale required for the Niger Expedition has been ordered from the Parties who supplied it on the last occasion, namely Mr.s Hodgson & Abbott, Captain Trotter having written favorably respecting the former supplies made by the same parties" [Henry Dundas Trotter (1802-1859) - the commander of the Niger Expedition]. Parry further notes "I have great hopes of receiving better accounts from the Niger, when we next hear I hope to write to your father today". "The Niger expedition of 1841 was a largely unsuccessful journey in 1841 and 1842 of three British iron steam vessels to Lokoja, at the confluence of the Niger River and Benue River, in what is now Nigeria. It was mounted by British missionary and activist groups, with the backing of the British government. The crews of the boats suffered a high mortality from disease" (Wikipedia). "In mid-August 1841 the expedition entered one of the mouths of the Niger. Early in October the last of its ships was limping back, its commander prostrated by fever, the cabins crammed with sick and dying, the geologist working the engines with the aid of a textbook. Those seven weeks cost forty-one European lives" (Dictionary of African Christian Biography on-line).

        Astronomische Untersuchungen. I-II

      Königsberg: Gebrüder Bornträger, 1841-42. First edition. &#147;Bessel&#39;s measurements of positions for about 50,000 stars and rigorous methods of observation (and correction of observations) took astronomy to a new level of precision. He was the first to accurately measure the parallax, and hence the distance, of star other than the Sun. The achievements of Bessel were possible only because he first established the real framework of the universe by making accurate measurements of the positions and motions of the nearest stars, making corrections for various measuring errors caused by imperfections in his telescopes and by disturbances in the atmosphere.&#148; (Erik Geregersen, The Universe, p.55). &#148;Modern astronomy of precision is essentially Bessel&#146;s creation. Apart from the large scope of his activity, he introduced such important novelties as the effective use of the heliometer, the correction for personal equation (in 1823), and the systematic investigation of instrumental errors. ... Especial attention should be directed to his Astronomische Untersuchungen (2 vols. 1841-42)&#148; (Brittanica). <br/><br/>& The Astronomische Untersuchungen consists of fourteen separate works by Bessel; some are re-worked editions of earlier works published in the Astronomische Nachrichten, and others appear here for the first time.<br/><br/> & Honeyman 314. 2 vols. 4to: 264 x 214 mm. Pp. vi,(2:contents),313,(1:errata); iv,(2:contents),307,(1:errata). Bound in two, uniform contemporary boards with leather spine label. Faint rubber stamps of the Glasgow Observatory to titles.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM VICE PRESIDENT JOHN TYLER TO DANIEL WEBSTER, RECOMMENDING A CANDIDATE FOR DISTRICT ATTORNEY OF MISSISSIPPI]

      [Washington]. March 11, 1841.. [1]p., plus integral docketing leaf. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old fold lines. Near fine. Vice President John Tyler writes to Secretary of State Daniel Webster regarding an appointment for Mississippi lawyer Augustine L. Dabney to the position of state district attorney. Dabney was a Mississippi lawyer and judge who suggested that the state convention propose Tyler as the candidate for vice president, a move that would lead eventually to Tyler&#39;s election to that office. He writes: "Sir, Should a vacancy occur in the place of District Attorney of Mississippi, let me bespeak your favorable notice to the pretensions of Augustine L. Dabney, Esqr. of Raymond Mississippi. He is a man of fine intelligence and of the soundest morals. He migrated to Mississippi about six years ago from Virginia when I had the pleasure of practicing at the same bar with him, and interchanging the hospitalities of frequent intercourse. I endorse that no man will acquit himself of his duties more faithfully or honorably. I know nothing of the present incumbent, and am not to be understood as asking his removal. If however he has come into office over the head of another and in a spirit of proscription, even handed justice would seem to require his removal." Letters by Tyler as vice president are fairly scarce, given the brief period of time that he held that office (March 4 - April 4, 1841). A nice letter by the Vice President, recommending his supporter for a government position.

In all a handsome set with bright, clean pages and hundreds of woodcut illustrations after William Harvey. Included in this translation are the voyages of Sinbad the Sailor. "[M]arkedly superior to any other that has appeared in English, if superiority is allowed to be measured by accuracy and an honest and unambitious desire to reproduce the authentic spirit as well as the letter of the original." - A. J. Arberry.
