        INCIDENTS OF TRAVEL IN CENTRAL AMERICA, CHIAPAS, AND YUCATAN

      Harper & Brothers, New York 1841 - 233 x 145 mm. (9 1/8 x 5 3/4"). Two volumes. FIRST EDITION. Publisher's brown gilt-stamped cloth, rebacked preserving original spines, corner tips restored. With folding map and 77 engravings after Frederick Catherwood, as called for, including two double-page and 65 full-page plates, with original tissue guards. Sabin 91297. Restored bindings unworn and with still-bright gilt, volume two with light dampstain to lower quarter of leaves, increasing to three-quarters on the last few quires, the same volume with minor (mostly marginal) browning or foxing to plates, otherwise an excellent copy internally, clean and bright. This work brought the ancient Mayan civilization to the attention of scholars and public alike, and spurred research into the archaeology of Mesoamerica. Ordered to travel for his health, John Lloyd Stephens (1805-52) moved beyond the traditional Grand Tour sites in Western Europe to explore the Mediterranean, Asia Minor, and the Middle East. His first two books, "Incidents of Travel in Egypt, Arabia Petraea and the Holy Land" (1837) and "Incidents of Travel in Greece, Turkey, Russia and Poland" (1838), documented these journeys and won him the sobriquet "the American Traveller." On his way home to the United States, Stephens met artist and fellow travel enthusiast Frederick Catherwood (1799-1854) in London, and the two men found they shared an interest in exploring Central America. They set out on this expedition in 1839, in the midst of political upheaval and civil war in the region. In the jungle of Honduras, they found the ruins of the Mayan city of Copán, which Stephens purchased from the landowner for $50. With only the help of a guide, a crude map, and a few men to help carry supplies, Stephens and Catherwood explored the jungles of Honduras, Guatemala, and the Yucatan, uncovering Mayan ruins that Catherwood sketched. ANB observes, "The size and quality of the ancient cities exceeded Stephens's expectations" and notes that this work "sold 20,000 copies in the first three months and continued through many editions." Britannica reports that Stephens' account and "Catherwood's superb drawings caused a storm of popular and scholarly interest and precipitated much study of earlier, mostly forgotten accounts of the lands of the Maya by Spanish conquerors and explorers." Modern archaeologist Jeremy A. Sabloff praised Stephens' work for "his careful descriptions of the archeological materials, his eye for detail, and the relative lack of speculation amid his observations."

        Taschenbuch für Cactusliebhaber. Auf neue Erfahrungen gestützte Kultur und Uebersicht der im teutschen Handel vorkommenden Cactuspflanzen.Leipzig, Ludwig Schreck, (colophon: printed by Friedrich Andrä), 1841. Small 4to or imperial 16mo (17.5 x 13 cm). With colour-printed frontispiece. Plain beige boards.

      BMC NH, p. 1324; Dochnahl, p. 106; KVK (5 copies); WorldCat (4 copies); not in Nissen, BBI; Stafleu & Cowan. Rare first edition of an unusual little cactus book, the first half devoted to taxonomy and the second to cultivation. The paper of the frontispiece has a bright blue surface coating with an extremely hairy cactus (Pilocereus senilis) overprinted in white, brown and green (the hair and the name at the foot in white), giving the impression of a painting. Parts seem indeed to have been hand painted. Although the book stands alone complete, with no evidence that a continuation was intended, it later appeared as two volumes, 1841-1844, the first apparently a re-issue of the original single volume. The reference works record copies both alone and with volume 2. The present volume was reprinted alone in 1995. Good copy. Slightly browned. An uncommon little cactus book with a remarkable colour-printed frontispiece illustration.

Spine with red morocco labels with gilt title.l First edition of several important papers following the first public announcement of the basic process of photography by Louis Jacques Mandé Daguerre (1787-1851). The pronouncements on Daguerre's invention were made in 1839 by the French physicist and astronomer Dominique François Jean Arago (1786-1851) and mark the beginning of the triumphant process of photography. The first communication by Arago in this volume deals with the announcement by Daguerre that he had been able to produce good images with a shutter speed of just 1 to 2 seconds, whereas in 1839 the exposure time was counted in minutes. We offer the complete volume 12, which, as indicated in the index, contains no less than twenty papers on photography.

        VINDICATION OF PRESIDENT TYLER. (READ AND CIRCULATE.).

      [1841], np: 1841 - Folio. 8pp, in three columns per page. A folded elephant folio sheet, uncut and untrimmed, Some toning, two small holes affect several letters on four leaves. Good+. This rare imprint defends President Tyler, abused as "His Accidency" when he became the first "accidental" President upon the death of Whig President Harrison. Whigs, who had thought Tyler was one of their own, deeply resented the newly installed President when he vetoed the recharter of the United States Bank, a measure which Henry Clay had sponsored. Senator Benton, among others, defended Tyler. "Mr. Benton overflowed with milk and honey for the President, and came nigh splitting with gall and indignation when the President was hissed by the Clay Bank ruffians." This pamphlet defends Tyler and denounces "the insolence of the National Bank party." Andrew Jackson's Letter, written from the Hermitage in September 1841, "my strength failing me," nevertheless "give[s] praise to Mr. Tyler for his veto of the Bank bill." OCLC 191307147 [1- AAS] [as of July 2015]. Not in American Imprints, Sabin, Haynes, Eberstadt, Cronin & Wise [Tyler]. Not on the online catalogues of the Library of Congress, Harvard, Yale, Columbia, U TX, U Chicago, U VA.

Copy to arms hit on Brazilian boards SPDF with the figure below. Bound in red full of shagreen then. Back smooth decorated with rococo decorations, gilded Gothic title. boards decorated with a rich decor Rockery, cold and warm, with the crown of Brazil on the upper flat and SPDF letters below, Brazil's arms on the lower flat. Golden slices. Roulette Indoor cold. shimmering blue guards. Restoring a green paper strip between the two cover pages at the beginning and end of the book, with exposed yellow stitching. A few scattered spots on a pale white paper well. Friction copings with small lack the upper joint in the head. Very nice copy, despite some minor flaws. The name down in the middle of contreplat G. Leuzinger, and the corresponding address on the second contreplat: Rua do Ouvidor 36, is not the name of a bookbinder, but that of a printer and photographer s Switzerland is installed in Rio de Janeiro in 1832. The Rua Ouvidor 36 is indeed the address of his shop. This was made very famous by his photographs of Brazil, which are the first that we have today. Presumably Leuzinger brought this partition of Paris and made it relate to sell in his shop, it was perhaps a special imperial order. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Opera complet dialogué, partition de chant et piano. Exemplaire aux armes frappés sur les plats du Brésil avec le chiffre S.P.D.F. en dessous. Reliure en plein chagrin rouge d'époque. Dos lisse orné de décors rocaille, titre doré en gothiques. Plats ornés d'un riche décor Rocaille, à froid et à chaud, avec la couronne du Brésil sur le plat supérieur et les lettres S.P.D.F. dessous, les armes du Brésil sur le plat inférieur. Tranches dorés. Roulette à froid intérieure. gardes moirées bleues. Restauration d'une bande papier verte entre les deux pages de garde, au début et à la fin du livre, avec des coutures jaunes apparentes. Quelques rousseurs pâles éparses sur un papier bien blanc. Frottements en coiffes avec petit manque au mors supérieur en tête. Très bel exemplaire, malgré quelques minimes défauts. Le nom en bas au milieu du contreplat : G. Leuzinger, et l'adresse correspondante sur le second contreplat : Rua do Ouvidor 36, n'est pas le nom d'un relieur, mais celle d'un imprimeur et photographe Suisse qui s'est installé à Rio de Janeiro en 1832. Le Rua de Ouvidor 36 est en effet l'adresse de sa boutique. Celui-ci s'est rendu très célèbre par ses photographies du Brésil qui sont les toutes premières que nous possédons aujourd'hui.  On peut penser que Leuzinger a fait venir cette partition de Paris et l'a faite relier pour la vendre dans sa boutique, il s'agissait peut-être d'une commande impériale spéciale. Rihard Coeur-de-Lion est le meilleur et le plus célèbre des opéras de Grétry, de celui qui fut le maître de l'opéra comique dans la seconde moitié du XVIIIe.

He was the first to use a star's parallax to determine its distance (61 Cygni, at a distance of nearly 10 light years). This may be regarded as the starting point of understanding the depth of space. As a mathematician, Bessel is best known for developing the so-called Bessel functions, which are important for the solution of equations used in both classical physics and quantum physics. Without formal training in science, Bessel became a fellow of the prestigious Royal Society. This work, published in two parts, contains 14 different contributions, some original and not published before (e.g. a paper on the weight of Jupiter), while others have been reworked from Bessel’s earlier studies. He wrote the prefaces to both parts and it is clear that he regarded these contributions as the most important he made, especially from a practical point of view. "From 1840 on, Bessel's health deteriorated . After two years of great suffering, Bessel died" (DSB). This work therefore, is in a way Bessel's scientific testament. A very good, complete copy. Rare, with no auction records for the last 35 years. DSB II, p. 98; Houzeau & Lancaster, 3569; Not in Cat. BM(NH). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Zus. 14 S., 12 bis Gr.-8. Haynald studierte in Gran, Tyrnau und Wien, wo er 1841 in Theologie promovierte. Von 1842 bis 1846 war er Professor der Theologie in Gran, beschäftigte sich lebhaft mit Naturwissenschaft, besonders mit Botanik, wurde 1851 Koadjutor des Bischofs in Karlsburg und 1852 dort Bischof, zuvor wurde er zum Titularbischof von Hebron ernannt. 1863 entsagte er seinem Bistum und lebte in Rom, bis er 1867 als Erzbischof von Kalocsa nach Ungarn zurückkehrte. Im Konsistorium am 12. Mai 1879 wurde er von Papst Leo XIII. zum Kardinal erhoben. Ihm wurde die Titelkirche Santa Maria degli Angeli zugewiesen. Er errichtete in Kalocsa ein reichdotiertes Gymnasium der Jesuiten und versah es 1877 mit einer Sternwarte. Sein Herbarium und seine botanische Bibliothek gehörten um 1890 zu den vollständigsten in Europa, auch lieferte er eine wertvolle Arbeit über die Pflanzen der Bibel. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina ernannte ihn 1867 zu ihrem Mitglied (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch, Deutsch u. Lateinisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

      Zus. 51 S., 8 u. 4. Alphonse wurde als Sohn einer reichen jüdischen Bankiersfamilie in Straßburg geboren. Nach einem Studium der Rechtswissenschaften und Literatur in Paris arbeitete er als Rechtsanwalt und Bankier in der Firma seines Onkels. Im Jahr 1841 wurde Alphonse Ratisbonne mit der Tochter seines ältesten Bruders verlobt. Die Ehe wurde allerdings, weil das Mädchen erst 16 Jahre alt war, noch aufgeschoben und Alphonse Ratisbonne unternahm eine Reise in den Orient. Sein Weg führte ihn auch in die Stadt Rom, wo er mehr durch Zufall die Kirche St. Andrea delle Fratte betrat und dort in einer Lichterscheinung Maria sah. Nach diesem Erlebnis konvertierte er mit seiner Taufe in einer Jesuitenkirche zum christlichen Glauben. Am 20. Juni 1842 trat er als Novize in die Gesellschaft Jesu in St. Acheul ein. Schon ab dem Jahr 1843 unterstützte er seinen Bruder Théodore Ratisbonne bei der Gründung der Kongregation der Sionsschwestern. In St. Acheul erhielt Alphonse am 20. September 1847 oder 1848 die Weihe zum Priester. Er trat in den Jesuitenorden ein und war als Missionar tätig. Alphonse Ratisbonne trat nach einigen Jahren mit der Erlaubnis Papst Pius IX. wieder aus dem Jesuitenorden aus und wurde Mitglied der Brüder Unserer Lieben Frau von Sion, wo er sich für die Bekehrung der Muslime und Juden mit Hilfe karitativer, geistlicher und erzieherischer Mittel einsetzte. Im Jahr 1855 zog er mit der Kongregation der Sionsschwestern nach Jerusalem um und ließ dort für die Schwestern im Jahr 1856 am Ecce-Homo-Bogen ein großes Klostergebäude errichten, das auch eine Schule und ein Waisenhaus für Mädchen erhielt. Außerhalb der Stadt Jerusalem ließ er im Jahr 1860 das Waisenhaus St. Johann an einem Berg bei En Kerem und eine weitere Kirche errichten. Das später erbaute Waisenhaus St. Peter in der Nähe des Jaffatores war für Jungen bestimmt und hatte eine angeschlossene Schule (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878).

        Mémoire sur les moyens de corriger les malfaiteurs et les fainéants à leur propre avantage et de les rendre utiles à l'État ; précédé d'un premier mémoire inédit sur la même matière, présentés aux États de Flandres en 1771 et en 1775, par le vicomte J. P. Vilain XIIII.

      Méline, Cans et Compagnie, Bruxelles 1841 - In-8 de (4)-III-(1)-390 pp., demi-veau bleu, dos lisse orné (reliure de l'époque). Deuxième édition, augmentée d'une notice historique sur la vie et les ouvrages de l'auteur par son frère Charles Hippolyte Vilain XIIII. Portrait de l'auteur en frontispice, 1 tableau replié et 5 planches hors-textes gravées par Onghena. L'édition originale a paru à Gand en 1775. Ce remarquable mémoire fut à l'origine des principes fondamentaux du premier système pénitentiaire. Issu d'une très ancienne et très illustre famille belge, le vicomte Jean-Jacques-Philippe Vilain XIIII (1712-1777), bourgmestre de Gand, grand bailli, puis conseiller d'État, créa la maison pénitentiaire de Gand (1771-1774) qui servit de modéle aux grandes réformes de l'emprisonnement en France, en Angleterre et aux État-Unis : la maison de force de Gand ne renfermait pas seulement des mendiants et des vagabonds mais aussi des criminels. Cette institution était organisée autour du travail des prisonniers, car selon une enquête faite sur les condamnés dans la juridiction d'Alost, en 1749, montre que les malfaiteurs n'étaient pas « des artisans ou des laboureurs mais des fainéants voués à la mendicité ». De là, l'idée d'une maison qui assurerait en quelque sorte la pédagogie universelle du travail pour ceux qui s'y montre réfractaire et en redonner le goût à ceux qui l'ont perdu. Obligation du travail mais aussi rétribution, qui permettent au détenu d'améliorer son sort pendant et après la détention. « L'homme qui ne trouve point sa subsistance doit absolument se porter au désir de se la procurer par le travail ; on lui offre par la police et la discipline ; on le force en quelque sorte à s'y livrer ; l'appât du gain l'excite ensuite ; corrigé dans ses m?urs, habitué à travailler, nourri sans inquiétude avec quelques profits qu'il préserve pour sa sortie, il a appris un métier qui lui assure une subsistance sans danger ». De la Bibliothèque du Château de Dampierre avec l'ex-libris d Honoré d?Albert, 8e duc de Luynes (1802-1867) réhaussé d'un envoi autographe signé de l'auteur : Offerts aux études elevées et bienfaisantes de Monsieur le Duc de Luynes Par l'auteur Villain.

Fossiles principaux des terrains (by É. Bayle). Seconde partie. Végétaux fossiles du terrain houiller (by Zeiller): Paris, Imprimerie Nationale, 1878. Folio. Title page, half title to first part. 86 lithographed plates with explanatory text leaves, numbered I-LXXXVI; 90 lithographed plates with explanatory text leaves, numbered LXXXVII-CLXXVI (the last 16 on plants), for a total of 176 plates. Volumes I, II, and IV plate volumes in near uniform contemporary dark-green pebbled morocco over marbled boards. Spines with five gilt-stippled bands, and gilt title. Marbled endpapers. The text volumes with top edge gilt, atlases with marbled top edges. Text volumes III and IV in original printed wrappers. The large chromolithographed map in six sheets (approximately 218 x 223 cm) is contained in a contemporary, book-like crimson box with gilt-lettered spine, with raised bands and patterned paper sides.l This very important French geological and paleontological work is based upon and includes the first complete geological map of France (and the southern part of the U.K. and Corsica) with a scale of 1:500.000, mounted on linen. The often lacking volumes III and IV, with their atlases are also included, as is the chromolithographed "tableau d'assemblage" (57 x 54 cm, bound in text volume 2) which forms the key to the first geological map of France. This map comes in six parts that, when assembled, measures more than 2 by 2 meters! Zittel: "Elie de Beaumont and Dufrenoy set to work in 1825 to prepare a geological map of France. At first they worked under the direction of Brochant de Villiers, afterwards they continued independently and in 18 years the text and maps were completed. Its publication exerted a powerful influence on the whole development of geology in France and secured for the two authors a distinguished place.". Volume III is by Dufrenoy alone; the zoological atlas is by Bayle, and includes plates dealing with molluscs (mainly secondary - Mesozoic - ammonites and bivalves; some belemnites and gastropods, as well as several brachiopods and echinoderms); the botanical volume IV(seconde partie) is by Zeiller, with plates (bound in the rear of the second atlas) depicting fossil plants, principally from Carboniferous deposits. The Bayle and Zeiller Atlases are often lacking and thus very rare. A "Tome 3, deuxième partie" was never published. Some regard Bayle' s atlas as part 2, but there is no indication of this in this work. Also, the "Tome 4, première partie" also remained unpublished, but similarly, Tome 4' s atlas is sometimes regarded as such. In any event, this set contains all that was published. Wrappers to text volumes partly detached and chipped at the edges. All bound volumes with very wide margins, those in wrappers uncut.

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 the Muricidae (rocher), the Bursidae and Cymatiidae (ranelle), and more Cymatiidae (triton), plus a few Buccinidae (Colubraria) and Cancellariidae (Plesiotriton). The fine, hand-coloured plates by Maubert, Roch, De la Haye, and others are among the most beautiful illustrations of muricids and ranellids ever published. Publication started in 1841 and was completed two years later (Faber, 2011). Some rubbing to the boards, a few sections in the text spotted, some more heavily in the margins, but generally rather clean; a few plates unevenly age-toned but most plates with just a few spots, or 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.

There is one more plate than mentioned in the list of illustrations, with there being two numbered IX. Frontis was painted by T. Mogford and engraved by G. Stodart. The other plates were drawn by Richard Brown and engraved by J. Rogers and H. Adlard. Thomas Mogford (1809-1868) was a painter. George J. Stodart (1884-1892), Henry Adlard (1824-1869) and John Rogers (1800-1882) were Engravers. Richard Brown also Wrote 'Church Architecture, Its Rise, Progress, and Present State,' and 'The Principles of Practical Perspective'. This book exemplifies the 19th century fascination with architecture from other times and places. At the time of publication there was a particularly scathing review about this book: "Scarcely ever have we met with a more egregious specimen of arrant book-making, of quackery and charlatanry, than this publication. Of quackery and impudence the very title itself bears evidence, the author there assuming to himself the style of 'Professor of Architecture'...Absurd at the very best this kind of self-bestowed professorship double or trebly so in the case of Mr. Richard Brown...it is plain that, instead of being at all capable of instructing others in architecture, he is most profoundly ignorant of it...It is to trash of this kind published under the name of collections of 'Designs,' that we may ascribe those abortions and monstrosities in brick and mortar, which spring up in various parts of the country...That we are severe, we do not deny; but we cannot possibly be too severe, on the present occasion, for we hold this publication to be thoroughly disgraceful to all concerned in it, and nothing less than a positive insult to the architectural profession, and a libel upon the architectural taste of the country, in the middle of the nineteenth century." - The Civil Engineer and Architect's Journal, Volume 5 Despite this Richard Brown's other publications received favourable reviews and this book seems to have been popular enough as it was published again in 1842 as well as in 1852. Condition: Good. Front joint is starting. Some bumping and rubbing. Pencil inscription to the front free endpaper. Foxed to the first and last few pages, and on and around the plates. Some pencil marks to page xi. Tidemarks to some of the plates.

The fine, hand-coloured plates by Maubert, Roch, De la Haye, and others are among the most beautiful illustrations of muricids and ranellids ever published. Publication of these parts started in 1834 with Marginella and was completed in 1841 with the last part of Marginella, with Voluta and Mitra published in 1838-1839 (Faber, 2011). Slight rubbing to the boards, a few sections in the text spotted, 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. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      "Hishu" [today Saga Prefecture]: 1841-45.A very rare Japanese manuscript sea chart of the sea routes from Saga Prefecture, a major trading area in the west, to Osaka through the Inland Sea, which is more than 400 km. long and includes in excess of 3000 islands. The Inland Sea, one of the main trade routes for the Japanese in the Edo period, has numerous areas of turbulence and navigating through the numerous islands and rocky outcroppings presented enormous problems in the era before modern navigation systems. In the early 1840s, the central government in Edo ordered each fiefdom to prepare maps of coastal routes to facilitate trade and shipping. Our manuscript was prepared by Tsugihei Miyachi, a high level sea pilot ("mite kako") in the Saga Prefecture shipping office as an employee of the Nabeshima Clan.The map, were it to be unbound, is about 11,340 mm. long (about 37 feet), depicting Saga in the west to Osaka in the east. It is finely drawn in black ink, heightened with wash in green, purple, blue, grey, and red. Five of the openings have folding extension sections pasted onto the lower margins of the leaves. Blue lines depict safe sailing routes for smaller ships. The map depicts in very great detail areas of turbulence (there are famous whirlpools in the Inland Sea), numerous islands, rock formations and landscapes for orientation, anchorages, harbors, and fishing areas. Each section of the map has been annotated by the compiler with notes on distances, characteristics of rivers, landmarks for navigation, tidal activities, the route to Nagasaki, etc.The first map opening depicts Saga and the final opening Osaka. The sea chart is prepared with considerable local knowledge of castles and temples.A series of notable castles (each is labeled with name of the lord, assets, etc.) are depicted along the shores and Miyachi describes harbors for anchoring and to get fresh water. The routes are drawn from a "bird's-eye view" perspective, with lovely vistas of mountains and islands and villages and towns.The two leaves of manuscript text at the beginning, in the style of a dedicatory letter to the fiefdom lord, describes the compiler's efforts over a five-year period to prepare the map. He writes that it is based on his own personal experiences as a sea pilot. He states that purple denotes routes he has taken, red denotes shallows, blue lines denote the routes for large ships, grey for land, and green for mountains and forests.The eleven pages of text at the end provide details on prevailing weather patterns and how to prepare for inclement weather, how to navigate by landmarks and the stars, wind and tidal patterns, and the history of the preparation of this map ("it took me five years of daily observation to prepare this work"). He provides a list of his voyages to different cities on this route.On the final page, the author states that three copies were made: the first for the fiefdom lord, the second for a cabinet member, and the third for Miyachi's divisional chief. A modern scholar has laid-in a note describing this sea chart as one of those three.Japanese sea charts are rare survivals and we know of no other similar example outside of Japan.❧ The sea pilot Miyachi's log books are preserved in the Nabeshima clan's archives (see the Saga kenritsu toshokan database).

        The Ladies' Flower-Garden of Ornamental Bulbous Plants

      London: William Smith,, 1841. Quarto (264 x 201 mm). Publishers deluxe binding(?) of dark brown skiver, decorative gilt spine, three-line gilt border on sides enclosing elaborate gilt panel, all edges gilt, yellow coated endpapers. 58 fine hand-coloured lithograph plates (with tissue guards) by Day & Haghe after the Misses Loudon. Head of spine chipped, binding a little rubbed and scraped. A very good, clean copy. First and best edition. "Mrs. Loudon's attractive flower books, first published in the forties, were reissued ten or fifteen years later with plates that had become coarsened and joyless" (Wilfrid Blunt, The Art of Botanical Illustration, 1950, p. 236). Jane Loudon née Webb, (1807-1858), "was to Victorian gardening what Mrs Beeton was to cookery. Her beautifully illustrated books on gardening and plant identification sold in their thousands and women all over the country were enthused by them to take up gardening as a hobby" (V&A online). She met her husband, the landscape gardener and horticultural writer John Claudius Loudon, when her extraordinary early novel The Mummy! A Tale of the Twenty-Second Century (1827) - a pioneering science fiction work which set futuristic technology, including a steam plough, among the trappings of Egyptomania - was reviewed favourably by Loudon in The Gardener's Magazine. The Scot decided to "seek out the acquaintance of the writer, whom he believed to be male" (ODNB) - and they were married seven months later.
