        The Naturalist's Library

      Edinburgh: Lizars, 1843. 40 volumes, small octavo, each volume with portrait frontispiece & engraved and printed title-page; numerous attractive steel-engraved handcoloured plates throughout (total of xxx), a fine set in a handsome uniform nineteenth-century half calf binding, banded spines with double crimson and green labels. Natural history of the world in 40 volumes. A fine and attractively bound set of this popular mid nineteenth-century natural history encyclopaedia, including a rich representation of Australasian species. Each volume also features a frontispiece and introduction devoted to the life of an eminent naturalist, with good biographies for example of Sir Joseph Banks and François Péron, as well as John Ray, Thomas Pennant and Thomas Bewick. One volume is entirely devoted to Australian fauna, and includes 30 plates depicting possums, marsupials, kangaroos, native mice, koalas, platypus and the now extinct Tasmanian Tiger. Descriptions and illustrations of other Australian species are scattered throughout the entire work, for example a volume devoted to dogs includes the 'New Holland Dingo' with a striking coloured plate alongside a fine engraving of the skull of the dingo compared to that of a jackal. In particular, the fourteen volumes of the series devoted to birds are well stocked with Australian species, and are especially good on parrots, with splendid illustrations of cockatoos, galahs and lorikeets. Sir William Jardine was born in 1800 and developed a keen interest in natural history during his childhood on Jardine Hall, a magnificent estate in Dumfriesshire. A gifted anatomist, Jardine travelled widely in search of specimens for his private museum, beginning with a three year investigation into the life cycle of British salmon and trout. Further adventures took him throughout continental Europe and later the Caribbean. Through these travels and his ceaseless correspondence with fellow naturalists across the globe, Jardine's museum became one of the significant British private natural history collections of the era, boasting over 6,000 species of birds alone. The Naturalist's Library was an immensely successful publication, and offered the general public a beautiful and informative encyclopaedia of the natural world at an affordable price. Jardine wrote 15 of the volumes himself, and contributed many of the biographical introductions in the series. The work is renowned for the quality of the steel engravings by William Home Lizars, the brother of Jardine's wife Jean. Complete sets of this work are uncommon; Ferguson, for example, records only scattered volumes from the series (see 2314a, 3622b, 2766b, etc.).

        Ka Palapala Hemolele a Iehova ko kakou Akua . O Ke Kauoha Kahiko A Me Ke Kauoha Hou i unuhiia mailoko mai o na olelo kahiko

      Oahu and Honolulu: Na Na Misionari i Pai, 1843. Large thick octavo, a few gatherings gently browned (reflecting different paper stock), but an excellent copy in later half calf. First Hawaiian Bible Issued as a Single Publication. The first full Hawaiian language Bible: the single volume incorporates both Old and New Testaments. This combined edition is a monumental work of translation and scholarship, the fruit of years of labour by members of the American Bible Society at the Mission Presses of Oahu and Honolulu. The first native language scriptures printed in the Hawaiian islands date from 1827. The first Hawaiian printing of the complete edition of the New Testament appeared in 1835, with the Old Testament following in 1838. This is the first printing of the complete approved text of both Testaments issued as a single continuously paginated book. Both Testaments have separately printed title pages, the Old Testament bearing the Oahu Mission Press imprint while the New Testament title page (comprising pp.1129-30) states this section was printed at Honolulu. (Confusingly, the verso of the Old Testament title page is printed 'Ka Lua O Ke Pai Ana' ('the second printing'), however, this refers to the only other printing of the entire Old Testament in 1838 at the same press). Forbes notes that this Bible formed a compact edition intended for family and devotional use (a larger format version with reset title-pages was also issued in 1843 for church pulpits). The typography is skilfully composed and unhurried, and the present copy is a beautifully preserved example of the fine work of the Mission Press.

        Icones Piscium, or Plates of Rare Fishes. Part I [all published]

      London: R. & J.E. Taylor, 1843. Folio, with five beautiful hand coloured plates; the text unopened; some very faint marks, a handsome copy in the original printed paper wrappers, manuscript correction, as always, "five" to front wrapper, with the printed "four" struck through; housed in a cloth solander case. Fish caught on HMS Beagle. Very rare: the first separately published work on Australian fishes, in exemplary original condition. The particularly beautiful plates are after 'drawings from the portfolio of James B. Emery, Esq., late first lieutenant of the Beagle surveying vessel employed on the western coasts of Australia'. James Barker Emery (c.1794-1889) joined the Royal Navy in 1808 and was first lieutenant aboard the Beagle during her survey of the Australian coast from 1837 to 1841. Eleven of the species figured here were taken off the north-west coast, the other from Safety Bay in South Australia. This work was produced by Sir John Richardson, who recognised the terrific amateur talent of Emery. Richardson achieved his fame as surgeon and naturalist on the two arctic land explorations led by John Franklin. He went on to a career as a great ichthyologist, editing many mid-nineteenth century natural history works. In his later career (Richardson was still helping the third Franklin expedition at 60 years of age) he became the Chief Medical Officer at Haslar Hospital.

Erst 40 Jahre nach der Erstbesteigung des Großglockners erreichte am 3. September 1841 eine von Josef Schwab geführte Gruppe den Gipfel. Mit dabei waren u.a.

        Le Hachych

      Paris: Paulin, 1843. Octavo, ms. inscription on title; a couple of dampstains in margins at start, otherwise a fine copy in the original printed yellow wrappers, worn at spine. Presentation copy of the very rare first edition of this utopian hymn to hashish. In the early 1840s the French psychiatrist Moreau had begun studying the possible therapeutic applications of hashish, in the process installing himself as purveyor to the famous Club des Hachichins, an elegant coterie presided over by author and dilettante Gautier. But it fell to the well-known surgeon and republican socialist Lallemand to write the first European work to use the drug as its basic plot device. The work purports to be a translation from an Arabic manuscript which the author has discovered in his cabin whilst sailing for Marseille. It veers between the sensational and the doctrinal, particularly in its fundamental conceit that hashish not only provides consolation for the present, but an intimation and aspect of the future. This copy is inscribed by Lallemand to "Monsieur Breton", in distinctive sepia ink, with a flourish that zig-zags across the word Hachych: this must be a deliberate echo of the closing lines of the novel: 'Il n'existe, d'ailleurs, d'autre trace de signature qu'un énorme zigzag allant jusqu'au bas de la page, et annoncant, selon toute apparence, un violent désir de s'étendre sur le matelas dont il a été parlé…'. The book had some success and was republished in 1848 almost identically, but with the extra title Révolutions Politiques et Sociales.

        Incidents of Travel in Yucatan.

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1843. - 2 volumes. 8vo., (9 x 6 inches). Folding map in volume one (some browning, inexpertly repaired on verso). Folding engraved frontispiece in each volume (slightly creased, light spotting), 76 full-page plates, and numerous engraved illustrations in the text, all after Frederick Catherwood (some occasional spotting). Contemporary half straight-grained morocco over marbled boards (front cover of volume one detaching, joins weak, some wear at extremities). Provenance: Bookplate of Mabel Choate; Burndy Library and Dibner Library (Smithsonian Institution Libraries) bookplates to front pastedown of both volumes. First edition of Stephens's companion volume to "Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas, and Yucatan" first published in 1841: "Stephens provided accurate, detailed descriptions of the ruins, and he was the first to establish that the many Mayan sites were part of a single civilization that existed up to the time of the Spanish conquest and that the Indians were the direct descendants of that civilization" (ANB). These two volumes contain the important engravings of Frederick Catherwood (1799-1854): "In 1836 he met the American traveller John Lloyd Stephens, who was attending Burford's panorama of Jerusalem Stephens and Catherwood developed plans to bring their travel and architectural expertise to bear on American antiquities. Rumours of cities lost in the Central American jungles had circulated since the 1820s, when the Spanish colonies won their independence and non-Hispanic European travellers visited the region in increasing numbers.In September 1839 Catherwood signed a contract with Stephens to illustrate the ruins, with Stephens supplying the written narrative [I]n October 1839, he and Stephens at once set out for the ancient Mayan city of Copan, which lay in a remote valley near independent Honduras's northern boundary with Guatemala. They arrived in November and commenced the first large-scale survey of Mayan ruins, visiting such other Mayan sites as Quirigua in Guatemala and Palenque in southern Mexico. Catherwood cleared away the entangled vegetation covering the ruins to enable the use of his camera lucida. At Palenque, despite suffering from malaria contracted within a month of his arrival in Central America, he made maps and over fifty drawings "In June 1841 Stephens published Incidents of Travel in Central America, Chiapas, and Yucatan, which instantly earned the authors great accolades on both sides of the Atlantic. According to the historian William H. Prescott, Catherwood's copious and compelling illustrations clinched the book's success Stephens and Catherwood soon recommenced their explorations, turning their attention now to the Yucatan peninsula. They arrived in October 1841 bearing with them a daguerreotype machine, one of the first brought to Mexico In June 1842 Catherwood and Stephens returned to New York, taking the daguerreotypes with them, among the first archaeological photographs produced in Spanish America. Tragically all were lost in a fire on 31 July that consumed Catherwood's Rotunda; several priceless Mayan monuments removed by Stephens and Catherwood were also destroyed. The sketches made from the daguerreotypes, however, appeared in Stephens's Incidents of Travel in Yucatan (1843)" (Robert D. Aguirre for DNB). Mabel Choate (19??-1958) was the daughter of noted New York City lawyer Joseph Hodges Choate, who owned the Naumkeag estate in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Mabel took over much of the design decisions after her father's death in 1917, and assumed full control after her mother's death in 1929. Now a non-profit museum (since Mabel's death in 1958), Naumkeag is known for its extensive gardens, which were first designed in the late 1880s by Nathan Barrett, and replanned and expanded by noted landscape designer Fletcher Steele in collaboration with Mabel between 1926 and 1956. In 1975 the main house of Naumkeag was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and the entir [Attributes: First Edition]

        Auf einer Rasenbank am Hang sitzendes strickendes Bauernmädchen, rechts im Mittelgrund Frauen auf der Bleiche, im Hintergrund Dächer und Kirchturm einer hessischen Ortschaft.

      . Öl, auf Leinwand, rechts unten signiert und datiert "P. Rumpf 1843". 41,5:37 cm. Provenienz: Aus deutscher oder österreichischer Privatsammlung. Vergleichsliteratur: Ausst. Katalog: Philipp Rumpf (1821-1896). Kronberg/Ts., Receptur, 1996, Nr. 1, Farbtafel 1, Nr. 22, Abb. S. 69. Unser Bild zeigt eine für die bäuerliche Genremalerei typische Darstellung und stammt aus der frühen von Jakob Becker beeinflußten Schaffensphase. Auch in Komposition und Farbgebung wird dessen Einfluß und der der Düsseldorfer Schule deutlich. Das Motiv des am Boden sitzenden Bauernmädchens geht ebenfalls auf die Motivwelt Jakob Beckers zurück.. Philipp Rumpf, Sohn eines Frankfurter Konditors, durchlief eine breit gefächerte künstlerische Ausbildung. Da er zum Nachfolger im Geschäft seines Vaters bestimmt war, studierte er neben seiner Lehre als Konditor in seiner Geburtsstadt am Städelschen Kunstinstitut. 1835 besuchte er den Elementarunterricht in freier Handzeichnung bei Karl Friedrich Wendelstadt (1786-1840), 1836-1838 den Elementarunterricht im Modellieren bei dem Bildhauer Johann Nepomuk Zwerger (1796-1868), seit 1838 die Malklasse von Friedrich Maximilian Hessemer (1800-1860) und dann den Unterricht von Heinrich Franz Gaudenz von Rustige (1810-1890). 1842 wurde er schließlich Meisterschüler des aus Düsseldorf kommenden Genremalers Jakob Becker (1810-1872). Daneben spielte die Bekanntschaft mit Jakob Fürchtegott Dielmann (1809-1885) für seine künstlerische Entwicklung eine nicht unbedeutende Rolle. Nach Abschluß des Studiums mietete er gemeinsam mit Anton Burger (1824-1905) ein Atelier - eine lebenslange Freundschaft verband die Malerkollegen. Seit 1846 sind erste gemeinsame Fahrten nach Kronberg zu belegen, wo Rumpf zunächst die Sommermonate verbrachte und seit 1873 ein Atelier in der Kronberger Burg unterhielt. Zum Lebensunterhalt erteilte er seit 1844 erfolgreich Privatunterricht, richtete dann eine Schule für Zeichnen, Aquarell- und Ölmalerei ein; daneben unternahm er Reisen nach München, Dresden, Paris und Oberitalien. Neben Ausstellungsbeteiligungen in Frankfurt zeigte er seine Arbeiten in Hamburg, München, Dresden und Wien. Rumpf zählt neben Dielmann und Burger zu den Hauptvertretern der Kronberger Malerkolonie. Sein Schaffensschwerpunkt lag auf Gemälden, Aquarellen, Pastellen und Radierungen mit Interieur- und Genreszenen, zumeist mit Kindern, Mädchen und jungen Frauen, zudem malte er Landschaften und Bildnisse.

In February of 1839 he travelled to the Holy Land via Suez, Mount Sinai and Petra arriving in Gaza, and then on to Jerusalem. He ended his tour by spending several months visiting the biblical sites of the Holy Land, and finally returning to England at the end of 1839.

        THE WAR IN CHINA. Narrative or the chinese expedition from its formation in april, 1840, to the treaty of peace in august, 1842.

      1843 - London, Saunders and Otley, 1843. In-8 (150 X 225) demi-veau havane, dos lisse orné de guirlandes et filets dorés en place des nerfs, fleuron doré dans les compartiments, dentelles en queue et tête, pièce de titre veau vert lierre, tête dorée (reliure de l'époque); portrait frontispice, XIV pages de faux-titre, titre, dédicace, préfaces et table, une carte, 280 pages, une gravure hors-texte. TROISIÈME ÉDITION. Elle est ornée en frontispice d'un BEAU PORTRAIT COLORIÉ de l'auteur en costume traditionnel chinois, signé et daté «P.J. Bullock, February 21st 1843», d'une CARTE des côtes de la Chine et d'une vue à fond teinté représentant le port de Chuck-Pie-Wan à Hong-Kong. La première édition a paru en 1842. «Deux articles de Mc Pherson qui avaient parus dans "The Chinese Repository" sont compris dans ce volume» (Cordier). L'EXPÉDITION DE LA GUERRE DE L'OPIUM : Duncan MAC PHERSON (mort en 1867) servit comme chirurgien dans le 37ème régiment de grenadiers en Chine, et fut sévèrement blessé à la bataille de Chuenpe, durant la campagne militaire qui le mena pendant deux ans à travers la Chine, à l'occasion de la première guerre de l'opium. Ce conflit militaire, motivé par des raisons commerciales, entre le Royaume-Uni et l'empire Qing en Chine, est considéré comme la première manifestation du déclin de l'Empire en Chine, incapable de résister à l'Occident, déclin qui entraînera la Chine dans une longue période d'instabilité, jalonnée par la chute du système impérial. EXEMPLAIRE D'ALBERT D'AMADE (Toulouse, 1856-1941, Fronsac), avec sa signature autographe à l'encre noire sur le faux-titre. Général français formé à Saint-Cyr, il participe à la campagne de Tunisie en 1881 au sein du 3e régiment de tirailleurs algériens avant de rejoindre le 108e régiment d'infanterie au Tonkin en 1885 en tant qu'officier d'ordonnance du général Munier. Il est ensuite affecté à l'état-major de la 2e brigade de la division d'occupation du Tonkin et de l'Annam. Lors de la campagne du Tonkin, le jeune capitaine se passionne pour les problématiques de l'Extrême-Orient. De cet intérêt découle certainement sa nomination en Chine, en 1887, lorsqu'il rejoint la représentation diplomatique de la France à Tien-Tsin en tant qu'attaché militaire. Cinquième officier à être nommé à ce poste depuis 1870, Albert d'Amade séjourne en Chine pendant quatre années (1887-1891), au cours desquelles il se révèle un talentueux observateur, doublé d'un photographe accompli. Espion officiel au service de la France, Albert d'Amade incarne le parfait gentleman, séduisant par son tact et son intelligence, ses interlocuteurs. Sa connaissance du mandarin s'avère un atout de premier ordre qui participe au succès de ses trois grands voyages d'étude et de reconnaissance en Chine : la région de Pékin et la Mandchourie au cours de l'hiver 1888, les provinces méridionales du Yunnan et du Guangxi entre octobre 1888 et mai 1889, la Corée en 1890. Au retour de ces missions, il expédie de copieux rapports agrémentés de cartes et de photographies de sa main au 2e Bureau de l'État-major, à Paris, qui forceront l'admiration de ses supérieurs : « Grâce à sa connaissance approfondie des moeurs et des coutumes chinoises et aussi de son grand tact, il s'est parfaitement acquitté de cette mission à la suite de laquelle il a rédigé un rapport fort intéressant. [.] C'est un officier supérieur d'un très grand mérite, ayant un jugement très sûr et qui ne ménage ni son temps ni sa peine ». (Lucie Moriceau). BEL EXEMPLAIRE dans un élégant pastiche de reliure romantique. [Cordier, Bibliotheca Sinica, n°2369 - Lucie Moriceau, "Les carnets de voyage du général d'Amade, officier photographe (1887-1915)", ECPAD]. NICE COPY. PICTURES AND MORE DETAILS ON REQUEST.

Lewis wrote under the pseudonym, Charles Masson. In this classic travel account of Balochistan, (far Western Pakistan), Lewis gives a first-hand analysis of the political events, his personal experiences there, the manners, history, and customs of the peoples and tribes. Lewis served as a British East India Company soldier and explorer. He deserted his regiment at Agra in 1827 and assumed the name Charles Masson. Lewis (now Masson) wandered the region and was explored much of Afghanistan, Persia and Pakistan. Masson served in a variety of posts for the British East India Company and British government, while continuing his ground breaking archeological work. Masson was involved in much of the turmoil in Afghanistan and Balochistan. In 1840 he was imprisoned by the British Political Agent, Lieutenant Loveday at Kalat and later used as a rebel messenger at Quetta. He was arrested as a traitor and spy by the British in Quetta but released in 1841. His admonition against the policies of the East India Company in Afghanistan appeared to be proven true after the disastrous British losses in the first Anglo-Afghan war. An important account.

      [London: Reprinted for Thomas Rodd, Great Newport Street (Compton & Ritchie, Printers, Middle Street, Cloth Fair), c. 1843] [London: Reprinted for Thomas Rodd, Great Newport Street (Compton & Ritchie, Printers, Middle Street, Cloth Fair), c. 1843]. First edition. 8vo. 16 pp. Sewn as issued. In half blue morocco slipcase and chemise. Fine. Ashley V, p. 64; Granniss Shelley, pp. 43-44; Wise Shelley, p. 46 . According to Wise: "In 1843, when advertising the present pamphlet for sale, Rodd asserted that it was a facsimile reprint of an alleged original edition of which the author had printed twenty copies in 1816. No example of this mysterious original has ever been unearthed; no trace of it beyond Rodd's own statement has ever been discovered; and no mention of any kind either of its printing or distribution is to be found in the correspondence of Shelley or any of his friends. My own opinion is that no original ever existed, that the private impression of twenty copies was a myth, and that Rodd's so-called facsimile reprint of 1843 is in fact the actual princeps of the Address." Political essay arguing that the death of Princess Charlotte in childbirth was "a private grief," while the execution of three weavers for high treason in Derbyshire was a national tragedy. "The execution of Brandreth, Ludlam, and Turner is an event of quite a different character from the death of Princess Charlotte ... It is a national calamity that we endure men to rule over us, who sanction for whatever ends a conspiracy which is to arrive at its purpose through such a frightful pouring forth of human blood and agony. ... Liberty is dead!" Uncommon

        Fackelzug von ca. 150 Mitgliedern des Corps durch die Münchner Innenstadt am 5. Juni 1882, im Hintergrund die Frauentürme.

      . Ölbild von Cajetan Schweitzer, dat."5. VI. (18)82", 34 x 41 cm.. Der Fackelzug fand statt zum Gedenken an das verstorbene Copsmitglied cand. med. Heinzelmann. Der Münchner Stadtarchivar Ernst von Destouches (1843 - 1917) schreibt über dieses Ereignis in seiner handschriftlich verfaßten Münchner Stadtchronik am 5. Juni 1882: "Heute Abend (5. Juni 1882) brachte der S.C. der Corpsstudenten an der hiesigen Universität seinem kürzlich verstorbenen Kommilitonen, dem Angehörigen des Corps 'Bavaria', cand. med. Heinzelmann, einen solennen Fackelzug, der sich vom Akademiegebäude durch die Kaufinger-, Wein-, Theatiner-, Briennerstraße über den Maximilians- und Karlsplatz, die Sonnenstraße, Sendlingerthorplatz zum südlichen Friedhof, und von da zurück auf den Sendlingerthorplatz bewegte, wo die Fackeln unter den Klängen des "Gaudeamus" zusammengeworfen wurden. Die Zahl der Korpsstudenten ist zwar bedeutend zurückgegangen, der Fackelzug - in den vier Musikcorps eingetreten waren, die abwechslungsweise Trauermärsche exekutirten - war aber immerhin ein imposanter, es hatten sich ca. 150 Fackelträger betheiligt." Fotokopie dieses hs. Chronikeintrags liegt bei. - Der Malkarton auf Leinwand aufgezogen. Farbenfrohe nächtliche Szene, mit locker-impressionistisch aufgetragenen Lichtern. Sehr dekorativ in breite alte Waschgoldleiste gerahmt.

        "We Pity the Plumage, but Forget the Dying Bird. " An Address to the People on the Death of Princess Charlotte. By The Hermit of Marlow

      [London: Reprinted for Thomas Rodd, Great Newport Street (Compton & Ritchie, Printers, Middle Street, Cloth Fair), c. 1843]. [London: Reprinted for Thomas Rodd, Great Newport Street (Compton & Ritchie, Printers, Middle Street, Cloth Fair), c. 1843]. First edition. 8vo. 16 pp. Sewn as issued. In half blue morocco slipcase and chemise. Fine. Ashley V, p. 64; Granniss Shelley, pp. 43-44; Wise Shelley, p. 46 . According to Wise: "In 1843, when advertising the present pamphlet for sale, Rodd asserted that it was a facsimile reprint of an alleged original edition of which the author had printed twenty copies in 1816. No example of this mysterious original has ever been unearthed; no trace of it beyond Rodd&#39;s own statement has ever been discovered; and no mention of any kind either of its printing or distribution is to be found in the correspondence of Shelley or any of his friends. My own opinion is that no original ever existed, that the private impression of twenty copies was a myth, and that Rodd&#39;s so-called facsimile reprint of 1843 is in fact the actual princeps of the Address." Political essay arguing that the death of Princess Charlotte in childbirth was "a private grief," while the execution of three weavers for high treason in Derbyshire was a national tragedy. "The execution of Brandreth, Ludlam, and Turner is an event of quite a different character from the death of Princess Charlotte ... It is a national calamity that we endure men to rule over us, who sanction for whatever ends a conspiracy which is to arrive at its purpose through such a frightful pouring forth of human blood and agony. ... Liberty is dead!" Uncommon
