ÉDITION ORIGINALE, peu courante, du plus beau livre illustré au XIXe sur Toulouse, avec le Mazzoli. Exemplaire contenant 60 LITHOGRAPHIES hors-texte sous serpente. La table annonce 52 gravures, mais leur nombre peut varier considérablement selon les exemplaires : d'une trentaine de gravures pour certains, jusqu?à une soixantaine pour les plus fournis, ce qui est le cas pour celui-ci. Ouvrage enrichi de deux ENVOIS AUTOGRAPHES signés sur le faux-titre : «Offert par les auteurs, hommage de M. l'abbé Abeillon de Grenade Saint-Bernard. C. Paul [&] J.M. Cayla », et «A mon généreux ami, M. Raymond Lacave Laplagne. L'abbé JH. Abeillon sur Grenade St Bernard ».

Le château de Viella, dans le Gers, fut acheté par un certain Gustave Lacave La Plagne en 1921.

BEL EXEMPLAIRE, bien relié, au dos décoratif, et au corps d'ouvrage frais. PLEASANT COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        American Notes for General Circulation.

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1842 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original purple cloth decorated with blind-stamped arabesques, titles gilt to spine, yellow endpapers. Fading to spine and around board edges, joints, ends and corners rubbed, the rear hinge of volume two just starting but holding fine, mild spotting to some end leaves but internally quite clean; a very good copy. First edition in the primary binding, first issue, with 'xvi' paginated in volume I. This copy has the often lacking advertisement leaf preceding the half title in volume I and 6pp. of advertisements at the end of volume II. "Not one of Dickens' books was the subject of so much adverse criticism as the book he wrote after his return from America in 1842" (Eckel). Although complimentary of America in many ways, Dickens antagonised a large portion of his readership by his criticisms of the penal system, the lack of copyright and subsequent pirating of English works, and the entire system of slavery. This copy has the bookplates of noted collector Will Self, who may have been attracted by the contemporary ownership inscription of a "John Shelley", who it is tempting to think might have been John Shelley (1808-1866) of Avington House, the younger brother of the poet Percy Bysshe Shelley.

Illustrated with maps of the country through which the railways pass, and plans of London, Birmingham, Leeds, Liverpool and Manchester. Price one shilling."

Opposite page 22 is fold-out fine India paper linear map showing height and distance of the railway lines, with two or three light brown marks to edge.

It is a lasting testament King's commitment to completing the mapping of the Australian continent, and so completing the work of Cook and Flinders.First published in June 1825, this chart was prepared by King from the results of his four expeditions to chart to northernmost coast of Australia between 1818 and 1822 as commander of the Mermaid and Bathurst. The first expedition sailed in December 1817 carrying the botanist Allan Cunningham and surveyor John Septimus Roe. Two further voyages in the Mermaid ensued in the following years, culminating in that of the Bathurst during 1821-22. In addition to the invaluable mapping of these remote and treacherous waters, King's expedition yielded a bounty of information on the natural history and Aboriginal tribes of the region.This edition of King's chart is revised with additions from the Beagle surveys of northern Australian waters during 1837-42, commanded first by John Clements Wickham and later by John Lort Stokes. Both men served under King aboard the Beagle during the South American surveys of 1827 to 1830, and later accompanied Robert FitzRoy and Charles Darwin on their famous voyage of discovery 1833-36.Detailed and finely engraved, the chart is the work of John Walker and his likewise named son, engravers to the Admiralty (John Walker senior was long favoured by Dalrymple on account of the finesse of his work). It bears the stamp of "D. Wald Admiralty Agent Port Adelaide.".British Map Engravers , p.692; Ritchie 'The Admiralty Chart', pp.173-74; Tooley, 805 (first edition).

        Die organische Chemie in ihrer Anwendung auf Physiologie und Pathologie.

      Verlag Friedrich Vieweg u. Sohn, Braunschweig 1842 - 8vo (207x132 mm). xvi, [2], 342, [2] pp. including half title. Contemporary cardboard with handwritten paper label; interior foxed throughout, half title with chipping to fore-edge. ---- Garrison-Morton 677; PMM 310b; Waller 5796; Wellcome III, p. 515; Norman 1351; Sparrow 133. - FIRST EDITION. "With this book Liebig introduced the concept of metabolism into physiology" (Garrison-Morton). Liebig envisioned his book, titled Die Thierchemie in later editions, as a complement to his researches into the chemistry of plants. In it he showed, "like Lavoisier, that animal heat is not innate, but the result of combustion, introduced the concept of metabolism (Stoffwechsel); and classified animal foodstuffs as fats, carbohydrates and proteins according to their function. He thus became the founder of the modern science of nutrition" (PMM). The work aroused "sharply divergent reactions. Even those who reacted against it, however, began to view the chemical phenomena of life differently than they had before, for Liebig had provided one of the first comprehensive pictures of the overall meaning of the ceaseless chemical exchanges which form an integral part of the vital processes. As with his agricultural chemistry, Liebig's physiological writings provided an impetus which outlasted the refutation of some of his specific theories" (DSB).

Oval Ex-Libris label with initials to front pastedown (not identified) with stamp of 'Gardenside Bookshop' to top corner of verso of front free endpaper, maroon endpapers, bound by Riviere and Son with their small stamp to tail of verso of front free endpaper, bound in half brown crushed morocco, boards double gilt ruled, spine with gilt ruled raised bands lettered direct with gilt floral stamp to spine compartments, a handsome & individual copy in excellent condition. Ainsworth (1805-1882) wrote 39 novels of which Windsor Castle is one of lthe most successful. From 1842 to 1853 he edited Ainsworth's Magazine. He was extremely popular for his swift narrative & vivid scene-setting with enormous sales in the mid-century (See Sadleir No. 32 for his copy in 3 volumes containing 296,300,326pp (Sadleir. XIX Century Fiction). Ainsworth wrote Windsor Castle in 1842 while he was publishing The Miser's Daughter. During this time, he was constantly working in order to publish the novel by April, and Ainsworth only stopped when his mother, Ann Ainsworth, died on 15 March 1842. It was published in a serialized from in the Ainsworth's Magazine starting Juuly 1842 and ending in June 1843, and George Cruikshank, illustrator of The Miser's Daughter later became illustrator of Windsor Castle. The focus of the novel is on the events surrounding Henry VIII's replacing Catherine of Aragon with Anne Boleyn as his wife. Intertwined with the Court is the story of Herne the Hunter, a spirit of Windsor Forest. Windsor Castle is rooted in the legend of Herne the Hunter. Stories, including those found in Shakespear's Richard II describe the supernatural keeper of Windsor forest. The illustrations for Windsor Castle dominate the text. They were started by Tony Johannot, a French illustrator, After producing four illustrations for the Ainsworth's Magazine, he was replaced by Cruikshank as the illustrator for the rest of the work. In addition to the two illustrators, W. Alfred Delamotte worked on the novel. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Going to a Fair [Plate I Hunters and hacks]; Going to a Fair [Plate II Cart horses]

      London: Messrs. Fores, 1 December 1842. Aquatint engraving, coloured by hand, by J. Harris. 8 7/8 x 23 3/4 inches approx. 12 3/8 x 26 1/4 inches approx. A very fine pair of prints from "Fores's Road Scenes" series, here showing strings of finely observed horses on their way to a horse fair. Cooper Henderson "was educated at Brighton and then Winchester before studying rather idly for the Bar and enjoying a European tour with his father and elder brother, John. While his father and brother sketched panoramas...Cooper Henderson found, to him, more interesting subjects among the coaches, carriages and postillions 'on the road'. On Christmas Eve, 1929, he was married secretly to Charlotte By (then aged sixteen), the daughter of a Thames lighterman. Disapproving of the marriage, his father gave him a small allowance and told him to leave London. Thrown mainly onto his own resources, Cooper Henderson moved to Bracknell in Berkshire and started to paint for his living. He was quickly successful and his pictures of coaches and coaching are well known, being more accurate and lively than those of his near contemporary, James Pollard. He soon received sufficient commissions to afford to return to London where he was reconciled with his parents" (Charles Lane, British Racing Prints, p.119).

        HANGING SCROLL OF FUJI

      18. Good. [KAKEMONO] Kawabata GYOKUSHO^, artist. HANGING SCROLL OF MT.FUJI. Appears to have the original mid to late Meiji silk mounting with wooden roller handles. The image size, on silk, is X cm. An abbreviate and somewhat abstract Fuji looms in the distance over a haboku style foreground of gnarled trees on a crag. Gyokusho^ (1842-1913) was an important figure in Tokyo art circles at the turn of the century. He had studied Western painting in his youth under Charles Wirgman, but returned to tradition and became (according to Roberts) "the last great representative of the Shijo^ school." He was talented in more than Shijo^ style, however, as this painting illustrates. Haboku is a most difficult technique, which in Japan goes back to Sesshu^. It is often attempted, but hardly ever successfully. This painting is, in our opinion, successful. With uniform toning of the silk and a faint water spot, else very good. A lovely work.

        Warrant. In the Colony of the Cape of Good HopeÖ

      Cape Town, South Africa,: 20 August,, 1842.. Printed warrant form, large folio sheet 550 by 430 mm., completed in manuscript, old folds with some slight damage, signed by Sir John Wylde; framed. Very rare printed warrant form, for use in the Colony of the Cape of Good Hope for transportation to New South Wales. This example has been completed in detailed manuscript regarding the transportation of Private Booy Piet, court-martialled for desertion and the theft of his equipment. Piet's sentence was seven years, and it is particularly interesting to note that the printed form has been amended in manuscript to specify that he be sent to Van Diemen's Land rather than New South Wales (transportation to New South Wales was suspended in 1840, although not formally abolished for another decade).Piet came out to Van Diemen's Land on board the Cape Packet, sailing on 10 October 1842 from Cape Town and arriving in Hobart on 24 November. The Cape Packet is linked with the ill-fated Waterloo, a convict transport that was wrecked at Table Bay, Cape Town in late August of the same year (see Bateson, The Convict Ships, pp. 283-90). Of the 220 male convicts that had boarded the Waterloo at Sheerness, an estimated 72 survived. Bateson notes that the Cape Packet took these survivors to Australia, as well as three prisoners sentenced at the Cape to transportation; it can be assumed that Booy Piet would have been one of these.Booy Piet's convict record held in the Archives Office of Tasmania records him as being a laborer who could not read or write, of dark complexion, curly black hair, high cheekbones, broad nose and black eyes and eyebrows. There are two offences with sentences noted before he was released from the first stage probation on 24 January 1845. Also noted is that he died in hospital in Hobart Town, 28 August 1845.The warrant is signed by Sir John Wylde, former deputy judge advocate in Sydney (1816-25), and chief justice of the Cape of Good Hope from 1827 to 1855. Wylde had a controversial career in Australia, criticised by Bigge, avoided by Macquarie, and finally removed by Brisbane, but he was heavily involved in the Australian judicial system at an important period of its history.Archives office Tasmania, Online Record Con37/1/1; Bateson, 'The Convict Ships', p.289.

        Van Diemens Land

      London: John Arrowsmith, February 15, 1842 [issued 1850]. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour. Mild soiling at centerfold, otherwise excellent. 25 1/4 x 21 1/2 inches. A very fine map of Tasmania, depicting the island during an especially fascinating period in its settlement, by one of the great London mapmakers From the London Atlas, Jan. 1, 1850. Van Diemans Land became Tasmania in 1853, at the same time its last shipment of convicts arrived from England. Abel Tasman (1609? - 1659), a Dutch navigator, discovered the island in 1642 and named it Van Diemans Land. The British had taken possession of the island in 1803. It was used initially as a penal colony but about the time this map was made, rich geological resources had been discovered, including gold, zinc, copper, silver, tin and lead. Arrowsmith's map is characteristically handsome and intriguing, being copied from manuscript surveys. Vast portions of the island remained to be surveyed and continued to be for a very long time thereafter. Tooley,The Printed Maps of Tasmania, 78; Printed Maps of Australia, 119.
