        Lettre sur le nouveau systeme hieroglyphique

      1842. First Edition . CHAMPOLLION, Jean-François. Lettre à M. le duc de Blacas d’Aulps… sur le Nouveau Système Hiéroglyphique de MM. Spohn et Seyffarth. Florence: Piatti, 1826. Together, four offprints. Large octavo, original printed paper self-wrappers, original stitching, uncut and partially unopened; pp. 23. Housed together with three other offprints in custom cloth chemises and half morocco clamshell box. $1800.First edition of Champollion’s spirited defense of his own phonetically based system of hieroglyphic translation, in original wrappers. Together with three offprints by his elder brother Jacques-Joseph Champollion-Figeac, also an Egyptologist.“A French classical scholar and archaeologist, responsible for deciphering Egyptian hieroglyphics,” Champollion is “celebrated as the founding father of Egyptology… [His] thesis on the ‘hieroglyphic, figurative, ideographic and alphabetic’ systems of ancient Egypt… caused a sensation, providing the long-searched-for solution to the translation of Egyptian hieroglyphics… [In 1831], a professorship in Egyptian history and archaeology was specially created for him. Champollion died suddenly on March 4, 1832, in the midst of writing his great Egyptian grammar and dictionary. This was published by his brother after his death” (BBC). In this Lettre, Champollion bluntly criticizes Seyffarth’s Rudimenta hieroglyphices and Spohn’s researches, discrediting their claims to have achieved a system of translation. Champollion recounts the main points published in his Précis du Système Hiéroglyphique (Paris, 1824), which contains the general application of his system of decipherment and its proof. Champollion’s Lettre is here offered with three offprints by his elder brother Jacques-Joseph Champollion-Figeac, who worked closely with his brother and continued his work after his death: 1. Notice sur un Papyrus Grec, offprint from Bulletin Universel des Sciences et de l’Industrie, June 1824; pp. 12, folded as issued, uncut. 2. Scarabées. Systèm Numérique, offprint from Bulletin Universel des Sciences et de l’Industrie, May 1825; pp. 8, folded as issued, uncut and unopened. 3. Notice sur un Sacrophage Royal nouvellement découvert en Egypt, et transporté de Thèbes à Paris, offprint from Moniteur, July 25, 1833; pp. 8, folded as issued, uncut and unopened. Text in French. “Champollion” written in pencil on front wrapper of his Lettre.Neat repair to lower corner of front wrapper of the Lettre. An intriguing and quite scarce collection in fine condition.

        NARRATIVE OF THE LOSS OF THE MARY ROSE AT SPITHEAD JULY 20 1545 FROM ORIGINAL MANUSCRIPT A Relic Of The Mary Rose

      Portsea: Samuel Horsey. 1842. First edition, first printing. First edition, first printing. Bound in wooden boards salvaged from the 'Mary Rose', with black leather spine titled “A Relic Of The Mary Rose” in gilt. 96 pp. Measuring 9 x 6 cms. All edges gilt. A very good copy, the binding firm, the wood boards a little bowed and the spine tips nicked and rubbed. The contents are entirely complete, a little darkened to the margins and with a contemporary gift inscription to the front endpaper. Exceedingly scarce in the first edition (there where similarly bound reprints in 1844 and 1849). The only institutional holding of the 1842 first edition we can trace is the British Library copy, described as lacking the [dated] title page. All other institutional holdings, including the copy in the Royal Collection are of the 1844 or 1849 reprint. A ninety-six page narrative of the loss of the Mary Rose. On his accession to the throne, Henry VIII embarked upon a programme of ship building, including the “Mary Rose” which built between 1509 and 1511 was one of the largest ships in the English navy. As the English flagship, she took part in many of the naval conflicts over more than three decades of Henry's reign. Her last engagement was in the Solent against a French invasion fleet in July 1545. With Henry watching from Southsea Castle on the mainland, the “Mary Rose” sank with the loss of around 500 men. The wreck lay undiscovered for nearly 300 years until its accidental discovery by fishermen in 1836. Wanting to clear the obstruction, the fishermen hired pioneer divers Henry Abbinett, John Deane and William Edwards to investigate. After the initial discovery John Deane received exclusive salvage rights to the wreck, recovering and later selling relics from the ship, including long bows and several bronze and iron guns. The wood for this binding was purchased on November 12th, 1840, at Mr. Deane's Public Sale of Articles recovered from the Mary Rose. In 1982 after 8 years of preparation and groundwork the remainder of the Mary Rose was brought to the surface and now resides at The Mary Rose Museum, located at Historical Dockyards in Portsmouth. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our customers.

        Sketches of Costume by Coke Smyth

      [London], 1842. Two albums of original watercolors by noted English painter Coke Smyth (1808-1882), a vibrant series of historical costume designs, consulted by Queen Victoria and Prince Albert for inspiration as they planned their Bal Costumé of May 1842, with several annotations by Victoria and an entire page of original sketches by Albert. Smyth's close connection with the the first Earl of Durham, Governor of Canada, and the recent success of his ambitious color-plate book Sketches in the Canadas, most likely account for the attention shown him by Victoria and Albert as they planned the first of three elaborate costume balls at Buckingham Palace. The 125 costume paintings in these albums are strikingly dynamic and fresh, without sacrificing attention to historical detail. The subjects are primarily European, with the second volume devoted largely to English costume, but there are almost two dozen examples of Greek, Turkish, and Arab dress as well, likely inspired by Smyth's journey to Constantinople in the 1830s. Each portrait is captioned with a date and reign ("Elizabethan 1558.1603"), or, in the case of foreign subjects, occupation and region ("Itinerant Merchant / Constantinople"). Occasionally, Smyth provides direct views of historical monarchs, reproducing Moro's portrait of Queen Mary and Van Dyck's portrait of Charles I. Three of the English watercolors in the second volume are annotated in pencil by the queen. On plate 1, a noblewoman during the reign of Richard III, Victoria has written: "This will do." On plate 2, a nobleman in late fourteenth-century dress, she notes: "this also," with a note in a second hand dating the queen's note "May 1842." On plate 59, a scene of two late fourteenth-century women in elaborate headgear, Victoria has made a note that appears to read: "headdress longer." These three plates are penciled with Xs, as are several others from the same historical period, which may indicate the interest of the Queen. On a blank leaf mounted at the end of the second volume, Prince Albert has sketched three designs for a costume based on Edward III's effigy in Westminster Abbey. The largest of these sketches is a recognizable half-length portrait of Albert himself wearing Edward's crown. The other two, less detailed, are outlines of the full-length costume and the king's head and crown. Albert has sketched some individual details as well, such as the knot on Edward's belt. While the royal party did not reproduce in detail any of the historical costume designs proposed by Smyth, their interest in his Plantagenet images appears to have guided their final choices. Victoria dressed as Queen Philippa, and Albert as King Edward III (in the costume he himself had sketched), accompanied by members of the royal household in late fourteenth-century dress. Smyth was commissioned to document the costumes at the ball, and those drawings were published in a commemorative folio of hand-colored lithographs entitled Souvenir of the Bal Costumé, given by Her Most Gracious Majesty Queen Victoria, at Buckingham Palace, May 12, 1842. The Drawings from the Original Dresses by Mr. Coke Smyth. This volume, with text by antiquarian James Planché, was published in 1843 by London printmakers Colnaghi, who also bound Smyth's watercolor albums. After the publication of Souvenir of the Bal Costumé, Smyth pitched his own idea for a color-plate book, to be entitled The Costume of the Principal Nations of Europe from the Beginning of the 13th to the End of the 17th Century, based on these historical costume watercolors. Colnaghi agreed to Smyth's proposal, and issued a prospectus, but did not attract enough subscribers to make the expensive project viable. These albums remain the only record of Smyth's vision. Individual examples of Smyth's work are found in the Public Archives of Canada (Ottawa); the John Ross Robertson Collection in the Metropolitan Toronto Central Library; the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto; the Department of Prints and Drawings in the British Museum, London; the Victoria and Albert Museum, London; the National Portrait Gallery, London, and the National Gallery of Scotland, Edinburgh. A stunning group of original costume watercolors by an accomplished English painter, annotated by Victoria and Albert, a remarkable artifact of the Victorian era. Two folio volumes measuring 11.5 x 12.25 inches, original full green morocco, boards with multiple rules in blind and gilt, cornerpieces stamped in blind, raised bands with ornamental gilt ruling, compartments quadruple-ruled in gilt, cream coated endpapers, all edges gilt. Ink manuscript title in each volume: "Sketches of Costume by Coke Smyth / 1842." 125 original watercolors with penciled annotations, mounted individually onto rectos of heavy card stock with cloth guards. Annotations by Queen Victoria on at least three plates, and one full-page group of pencil sketches by Prince Albert (including a self-portrait) mounted at the end of the second volume. Bindings signed "P & D Colnaghi & Co. Pall Mall East." Foxing to endpapers and some mounts (affecting only a few plates), offsetting to blank pages facing watercolors, light shelfwear to bindings.

        Die organische Chemie in ihrer Anwendung auf Physiologie und Pathologie.

      Braunschweig: Verlag Friedrich Vieweg u. Sohn, 1842. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 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). Good.

        A Journey in the Northern Island of New Zealand...

      Hobart Town: George Rolwegan, 1842. Duodecimo, 206 pp. including appendices; uncut copy in attractive recent green polished half calf. Scarce Hobart printed account of New Zealand travels. This copy has an interesting presentation inscription to the publisher's wife 'Mrs. Rolwegan, with the author's kind regards.' Hocken recommends the quality of Wade's descriptive account while the NZNB applauds it as 'a work of present day rarity and textual value'.Reverend Wade came to New Zealand with William Colenso as a superintendent of the press. He served for six years as a missionary in New Zealand before being installed as the minister of Harrington Street Chapel in Hobart. While serving in Hobart Wade evidently became acquainted with the Franklins, as his account is dedicated, with permission, to Lady Franklin (who also personally subscribed for 6 copies).The 'Appendix gives list of New Zealand plants furnished by Allan Cunningham, with excellent list of their native names' (Hocken). A little modest foxing yet very good.

        A Descriptive Vocabulary of The Language in Common Use amongst the Aborigines of Western Australia...

      London: Wm. S. Orr, 1842. Octavo; mostly unopened copy in original green cloth, with 4-pp. advertisements bound in. Moore, a lawyer, landed proprietor and diarist, arrived at the Swan River Settlement on the brig Cleopatra in 1830; over the following decades he became a large land-holder at his property Millendon and was appointed advocate-general.Less than a month after arriving in the settlement, Moore accompanied the colonial secretary on a search-party to find Aborigines implicated in a robbery. From this period on he would express sympathetic concern for the local tribes, and made a sustained effort to learn their language and understand their stories.This work is based on the preliminary studies of the explorer George Grey. Moore greatly expanded and enhanced the material, producing a genuinely descriptive vocabulary of the language in common use amongst the Aborigines of Western Australia. As with all good works of this sort, Moore's work makes fascinating reading, as it includes detailed observations regarding the habits, manners and customs of the natives and the natural history of the country.Throughout, Moore's work gives a real insight into the lives of the settlers themselves; thus 'Janjin... the native pear tree. It bears a thing which looks provokingly like a good fruit'. Crude repair to title-page, some wear to extremities, else good.

        England's Exiles; or, a View of a System of Instruction and Discipline, as carried into effect during the voyage to the Penal Colonies of Australia.

      London: Darton and Clark, 1842. Small octavo, 238 pp., original printer's green cloth. Important book by Browning building on his experience as a Surgeon on board convict transports, most notably the Elphinstone which arrived in Hobart in 1836. Browning could not be accused of lacking piety, but the present work does provide a well-considered and argued account of overdue reforms to the practice of transportation, and was published in time to be of some impact on the last twenty years or so of ships being sent to Australia. Throughout there are glimpses of life on board based on his own experiences. An appendix deals with preventative medicine: hygiene, clothing, diet, exercise.Colin Arrott Browning (1791-1856) was appointed an assistant surgeon in the navy in 1813, and surgeon less than four years later. Well educated - he took his degree from Edinburgh University Medical College in 1825 - he first visited Australia in the convict ship Surry (arrived Sydney, 1831) and later served in a similar capacity in the Arab (Hobart, 1834), Elphinstone (Hobart, 1836), Margaret (Sydney, 1840), Tortoise (Hobart, 1842), Earl Grey (Hobart, 1843), Mount Stewart Elphinstone (Hobart, 1845) and Hashemy (Sydney, 1849). 'A kindly and religious man but restricted and narrow in outlook, [he] protested against sick prisoners being embarked and complained of the quantity and quality of the medicines and medical comforts placed in convict ships. He was attentive in the medical care of the prisoners and sought to further their education' (ADB).It was in this work that Browning really explained the nature of the reforms he was proposing, with a view to future surgeon-superintendents having a much more coherent and sensible plan to follow, rather than the very modest instructions with which he had been favoured. In his preface Browning does suggest that he has seen evidence that some reforms of the nature explained here had recently been adopted in some ships conveying female convicts. The first few leaves with very minor dampstaining to bottom margin; generally very good in the original printer's green cloth, rather scuffed.

        DESIGNS FOR THE HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT DEDICATED BY PERMISSION TO HIS ROYAL HIGHNESS THE DUKE OF SUSSEX

      London. for the Author 1842 - Oblong elephant folio, period half morocco worn. Title, dedication, 4 pages, 2 page list of subscribers and 28 of 32 lithograph plates being 4 plans and 24 views. Title a bit frayed and some spotting. A sadly defective copy of a very scarce book. Only one copy listed at auction and 7 on COPAC. Despite a lucrative private practice, in the competitions for public buildings that formed such a significant feature of late Georgian architectural activity, Hopper was almost uniformly unsuccessful. Defeated by Barry in the Houses of Parliament competition, 1835-6, Hopper was one of the most persistent and percipient critics of the competition judges, setting out detailed grounds for objection in his Letter to the . First Commissioner of his Majesty's Works (1837); pursued the controversy in Hopper versus Cust, on the . Rebuilding of the Houses of Parliament (1837); and eventually went to the considerable expense of publishing his own designs in this large sumptuous elephant folio.

        Architectural picture alphabet.

      Vienna: J. de Pian and L. Müller, 1842-44. Folio. 26ff. Twenty-six color lithographs after Jean Baptiste de Pian, printed and finished by hand by the noted Viennese lithographers Leopold Müller, Johann Höfelich, and M. R. Toma, each tipped into mounts and matted. Each plate in this series has a large letter of the alphabet fully incorporated as part of the internal decoration or architectural structure of various buildings, set in realistic landscapes. The buildings range from traditional European domestic architecture to exotic Babylonian and Egyptian temples, Moorish mosques, Indian porticoes adorned with stone elephants, and a Chinese palace. The illustrations directly reference many periods and styles of art and architecture, including the Classical, Baroque, Eclectic, Gothic, and Romantic movements. In his essay on Pian's alphabet, Dr. Anton Durstmüller notes that the letters also correspond with architectural elements in the scenes. In one illustration, the letter F forms the shape of a kitchen hearth, which is "Feuerstätte" in German. The illustrations are imaginative and nuanced, with attention to the finest architectural details. Jean Baptiste de Pian, also known as Giovanni Battista de Pian, belonged to a family of Italian artists who immigrated from Venice to Vienna in the late 18th century. Jean Baptiste's father and grandfather were both draughtsmen, painters, and engravers who also worked as set designers for the Imperial Court Theater of Vienna. This set is extremely rare; only one other copy has sold at auction in the last thirty-five years. A facsimile was published in Vienna in 1973, a copy of which accompanies this set. Housed in a blue board folding case. Some imprints slightly shaved, most lower imprints cropped, adhesion abrasion from old matting on a few images, minor marginal soiling, and scattered foxing. With the bookplate of Arthur and Charlotte Vershbow inside the front cover of the box. (Durstmüller, Ein Schmuckalphabet Aus Wien).

Char Gutzlaff" in ink on first blank, ownership details of "G.G. Alexander R.M. Artillery/Chusan Feby 1843. Notes in ink, in Chinese and English, relating to Chinese study on several leaves, some marginalia, last blank includes pencilled notes apparently in a romanization of Chinese. Edges water stained, some browning. Lust 1014. Cordier 1669- Löwendahl 1670. Octavo. 21.5 x 12.5cm. Rare. Although standard bibliographies such as Lust 'Western Books on China Published up to 1850' state that Philo Sinensis was the pseudonym of Walter Henry Medhurst, "Philo Sinensis" is also usually accepted as the pseudonym used by Carl Gutzlaff around this time and what is believed to be his work appears in publications such as the Chinese Repository using this pseudonym. The use of Philo-Sinensis as the compiler of this grammar seems to be without doubt as stated in The Chinese Repository (Volume II, 1842 page 318) "Still our best thanks are due to Mr Gutzlaff who often takes the signature Philosinsesus) for compiling, and to Mr Medhurst for revising and publishing this volume...". Bridgmann notes at the end of his review that "The responsibility for the publication at least in a pecuniary point of view rests with Mr Medhurst." Missionary printer Walter William Medhurst arrived in Malacca in 1817 where he quickly learnt Malay and also became literate in Chinese. He worked in Batavia as superintendent of the London Missionary Society's printing press with John Robert Morrison [1814 - 1843], (son of the pioneer of Protestant mission work in China) and William Milne [1785 - 1822]. Following a period working at the LMS press in Malaacca, Rev. Medhurst moved first to Penang and then to Batavia where this book was published. He finally took up residence in China after the conclusion of the First Opium War and opening of Shanghai as a Treaty Port in 1843. He was one of the translator's of the Delegates' version of the New Testament. His output of works was impressive - 59 in Chinese, 6 in Malay and 27 in English.Fellow missionary E.C. Bridgman wrote in The Chinese Repository (Volume 11. Page 317) "This little volume of grammatical Notices is a book almost unique in its mode of printing. In 1831 and 1832, Mr Medhurst, the indefatigable superintendent of the Batavia Mission and its 'mission press', published two vocabularies, Japanese and Corean, which were printed entirely by lithography. The toil and expense of writing out so many words and writing them too in a Roman text hand, induced Mr Medhurst to try if he could not use common movable types and lithographic printing in conjunction; and this little book is the result. All the English portion of it was 'set up' (as the printers phrase it) in movable types with blanks left for Chinese characters, and an impression was then taken and transferred to the lithographic stone, on which the blanks for Chinese writing were afterwards filled in with the pencil, - and the whole was then printed together in the same manner as ordinary lithography" (When referring to this item please quote stockid 157183)....

        La Bohème Quatre actes de MM. G. Giacosa et L. Illica. Version française de Paul Ferrier. Musique de Giacomo Puccini

      cartonnage rouge estampé de l'éditeur Première édition française de la partition pour chant et piano. Envoi a. s.: à Monsieur Em. Mennesson, Giacomo Puccini. Paris, 17/1/99. Émile Mennesson (1842-1920) était facteur de piano, luthier et marchand d'instruments, à Reims. Mélomane abusif et fou, il n'assistait qu'à la troisième représentation d'un Opéra ou d'un récital, au fauteuil 51 précisément, fauteuil qui lui était en permanence réservé et qu'il occupait chaque fois une violette cendrée à la boutonnière, quelle que fut la saison. Nombre de musiciens et compositeurs (ainsi Debussy qui fit le voyage de Reims pour lui porter Pelleas dédicacé) le fréquentaient et connaissaient sa réputation. Facteur reconnu mondialement, il est l'inventeur du Molliphone Mennesson qui assourdit le piano à volonté et à un tel point que ni des pièces contiguës, ni des appartements situés au-dessous, on n'entend les études musicales. Heureusement, ce dispositif tarda à se répandre dans les appartements parisiens et Jules Laforgue put écrire sa Complainte des Pianos qu'on entend dans les quartiers aisés. Ces enfants, à quoi rêvent-elles, dans les ennuis des ritournelles ? « Préaux des soirs, Christs des dortoirs ! » Et Mennesson de piano ?

        Album Pittoresque d'un Voyage autour du Monde, exécuté par ordre du gouvernement Français. Gravures en taille-douce entièrement dessinées par l'Amiral Paris. Texte par M. Casimir Henricy, publiciste, ancien marin, ayant fait partie de l'expédition.

      Paris: Ch. Noblet, n.d., but, 1842. Oblong folio, with 25 engraved plates; some foxing, cloth a bit spotted, small chip from corner of title-page; yet a very good copy in original crimson cloth, lettered and decorated in black and gilt. A scarce series of views of places visited by Laplace's Artémise voyage, bearing a short inscription by the author explaining his commission aboard the Artémise, signed by Pâris and dated 1886.The plates, all by Pâris, include a fine Hawaiian view ("Honorourou, capitale d'Ouahou, vu du mouillage - Iles Hawaï") as well as a view of the Tasmanian penal settlement("Etablissement Pénitentiaire de Port Arthur - Terre de Van Diemen"). There is also a view of the Artémise being careened at Papeete in Tahiti. The other images show the Artémise at sea under full sail, the African coast, South Africa, Indian Ocean, Coromandel, Bengal, Ceylon, Malabar, Bombay, Middle East, Philippines, China, and South America.Pâris started his naval career on the Astrolabe under Dumont d'Urville; he sailed as an officer on the Favorite on Laplace's first voyage, and sailed again with Laplace on the Artémise in her final voyage of 1837-1840. This was to be his last voyage too since he lost an arm as a result of a terrible accident. Nonetheless he continued a distinguished naval career. This was not his only book: his important study of native ship-building (Essai sur la construction navale des peuples extra-européens) was published in 1841.This is a remarkably rare book, not recorded by Cordier, Ferguson, Forbes, Borba de Moraes, Mendelssohn, the Hill Catalogue, Sabin, Judd, or Blackmer. The only bibliographical references we have found for the book are those by Rolf du Rietz (who records a copy in the Kroepelien collection) and O'Reilly-Reitman. This must be one of the scarcest books relating to the French grands voyages, and one wonders whether there may have been some impediment to full publication.These images are of Laplace's second voyage, a voyage that set out to consolidate French interests in the Pacific, particularly in Tahiti and Hawaii. The visit to Hawaii in July 1839 was one of "avowed hostility" (Judd), forcing the government to sign a treaty granting freedom of worship by Catholics, the introduction of French priests, wines and brandies, and the trial of French nationals by foreign juries only, backed up by a $20,000 guarantee, which emptied the treasury.

Esq.') on the list of subscribers, and one hundred and ninety-seven copies subscribed for.Angas early showed an interest in natural history and art, but as a young man took a place in a London office. He studied under the natural history artist Benjamin Waterhouse Hawkins, thanking the latter's 'new and infallible system' of drawing in the introduction to this work. In August 1841 he left on a tour of the Mediterranean, returning in November, and publishing this account of the trip less than a year later.The work features a handsome series of twelve lithographic plates, taken from his own sketches from nature and drawn by him on the stone. The letterpress is taken from Angas' journal and shows his lively and inquisitive imagination, as well as giving many descriptive details of the pictures.Now surprisingly rare, the Ramble shows Angas coming to maturity as an artist, and makes an important addition to any collection of Australian illustrated books. Plates a little spotted else very good.
