        Reports on the Progress of Zoology and Botany 1841, 1842.

      Edinburgh: Printed for the Ray Society, 1845. Octavo, original blind blocked green cloth with Ray Society insignia to front board in gilt, mildly rubbed, a very good copy. A fine copy of the scarce first publication of the Ray Society, including notices of the recent discovery of several Australian marsupials including the now extinct pig-footed bandicoot. The Ray Society was established in 1844 with the aim of furthering the publishing and distribution of botanical and zoological papers. This book was the first issued by the society, providing notices of important discoveries recently published in obscure journals and monographs. The society never intended to compete with existing publishers, yet assisted the printing of specialised scientific papers too obscure to be of financial value to publishers.Three pages describe novel Australian marsupial species, including the remarkably small nectar-feeding Honey Possum from the Swan River region of Western Australia and two new species of marsupial mice (genus Phascogale). It is reported that John Edward Gray has recorded a new species, the pig-footed bandicoot, while collecting along the Murray River. The pig-footed bandicoot did not survive habitat changes brought by grazing: the last museum specimen was recorded in 1901 although the Pintupi people encountered it far inland until the 1950s. Sadly, there is no doubt the species is extinct today. The chapter on marsupial discoveries concludes with a notice that Mr. Gould has increased the number of kangaroo species by six, all to be illustrated in his upcoming monograph.

        Voyage autour du monde sur la frégate La Vénus, pendant les années 1836-1839... Rélation du voyage...

      Paris: Gide et Cie. 1840-1845. Four volumes, octavo, text and a folio atlas ("Atlas Pittoresque"); the atlas completely unbound, comprising title-page and preliminaries, followed by a map and 67 plates, 16 of them costume and ethnography plates beautifully coloured, 26 of the views printed as lithographs with an added tone, 25 of them printed on china paper mounted; the large folding map representing plate numbers 69-70 in the list of plates bound at the end of the last volume of text; the text volumes uncut and mostly unopened in original printed wrappers, and the supplementary fourth volume as issued in plain unprinted wrappers; matching cloth cases for text and plates, leather labels. The voyage of the Vénus: this is a remarkable copy in completely original condition of the complete narrative of the Dupetit-Thouars grand voyage publication. Three other scientific sections of the voyage were later published (Botany, Zoology and Physical Science) but it should be emphasised that the work as offered here is quite complete: the Narrative was intended to be sold on its own and the printed wrappers here are clearly marked "La Rélation se vendra séparément".This is a magnificently produced work, with a splendid series of illustrations, mostly after Romuald-Georges Messnard and the talented landscape painter on the Vénus expedition Louis-Jules Masselot. These include four Sydney views and five Hawaiian views as well as many of New Zealand, Tahiti, California, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Peru, the Galapagos and Easter Island among others. A total of 16 plates are designed to form two-sheet panoramas, including a very fine double-sheet panorama of Honolulu from the sea and the splendid double-sheet panorama of Sydney.The narrative chronicles the most political of the major French voyages. Dupetit-Thouars was reportedly sent out to examine the whale fisheries of the Pacific, but the expedition was actually to call at ports around the world to support French commerce and diplomacy. After rounding the Horn, Dupetit-Thouars went up the South American coast, diverting to Hawaii and then to Kamchatka and then to California, to come to the assistance of French traders who had been appealing for support.'Dupetit-Thouars's account of his stay in California, in 1837, is one of the most important and complete records of the Mexican period. In 1838, the Vénus made a run for Easter Island, further investigated the coast of South America, then sailed for the Galápagos and Marquesas Islands, Tahiti and New Zealand. At Tahiti the expedition forced Queen Pomaré to write a letter to the King of France apologising for mistreatment of French priests, to pay an indemnity, and to salute the French flag. He had also made a treaty with Kamehameha III of Hawaii. After visits to Sydney and Mauritius, the ship sailed home, arriving after a voyage of thirty months... ' (Hill).The publication is 'of particular significance to the history of Hawaii' as Forbes notes, who gives a very full account of the publication and discusses its significance to the history of Hawaiian settlement, especially in the rôle played by Dupetit-Thouars in the establishment of Catholicism in the islands and his negotiation of a treaty for the free movement of French visitors.In the sections on New Zealand and Australia there is also considerable statistical material and analysis demonstrating the very close attention that the French continued to pay to the British colonies. Original printed wrappers, slightly darkened, a few spots in the text volumes, occasional spotting affecting a few plates.

        Du dandysme et de G. Brummell

      B. Mancel. First edition, one of the extremely rare copies on Hollande fort paper, the only large paper copies, of which a few are on colored paper.Contemporary half black shagreen with black paper boards, spine in five compartments with black fillets, corners a little rubbed.With an autograph inscription from Trebutien to Georges Lesnard. A little light foxing to endpapers.In his Annales de Normandie, Jean-Luc Piré gives an analysis of the importance of the collaboration between Barbey and Trebutien, devoting an entire paragraph to Dandysme to underline the importance of Trebutien's contribution to this little work, among the rarest and most sought-after by Barbey."We are familiar with the monumental correspondence Barbey maintained "monkishly" with his friend over the course of twenty-six years... The presence of Trebutien is almost constant in the Aurevillian universe. The "Sagittarius" was not far off when he wrote to his correspondent: "Your name, interwoven with mine, is as well known as my own... Whoever says d'Aurevilly, says Trebutien."Even in the very midst of Dandysme, Barbey pays homage to his publisher and friend: "I ask the thirty or forty people who will read this their leave to introduce M. Trebutien as a friend whose merit is greater than my own, and whose imagination and knowledge - often separate, but united in him - need no personal friendship to impress those who appreciate such things."The story of Dandysme, more than any other of Barbey's books, is tied to his publisher, friend, and active collaborator. Initially conceived simply as an article on Brummel, who had died three years previously, Du Dandysme was to take on book form thanks to a number of documents provided by Trebutien, who served to provide Barbey with documentary material: "as for Brummell, I've literally followed all your advice. I've read everything you recommended." Having received two rejections for the article from the Revue des Deux Mondes and the Journal des Débats, d'Aubervilly gave Trebutien the green light for publication. Barbey was to take this book to heart: the exchange of proofs and corrections was incessant. In October, he decided to add notes. The collaboration with Trebutien took on particular meaning: "You have taught me to love Brummell once more. Without you, I would have thrown him on the dust-heap to repay the disappointments he caused... But you have given me back the taste for him and so, urged on by you, here I am immersed in the cult of detail, of little dots and shaded lines, of all those corrections that make up a finished work for which I haven't the strength, being a man of immediate passions, a brutal and rapid artist, animalistically reduced by his passions!"When, in 1850, Trebutien suggested publishing Prophètes du Passé, Barbey agreed in the following terms: "We'll correct the proofs like those for Brummell, won't we, my friend? I like that way of working, it is so inspiring. If a thought, a note, a little change should come to me, I can send it on to you."Whereas the first edition strengthened the friendship between the poet and his publisher, J-L. Piré notes that the reprinting of the work was, on the contrary, a source of friction: Barbey suggested to his friend (on the 2nd July 1858) that they let Poulet-Malassis reprint the work on Brummell... : "if you authorize me to deal with the sour Poulet [lit.: chicken]. We'll divide equally what he gives us for the Brummell and its reprint." But Trebutien despised Poulet-Malassis: "a socialist of the worst kind... he was the editor of one of the basest newspapers of the time... He established in Paris a bookshop where he reprints all the impure and impious works of the 18th century." (Piré Jean-Luc, in: Hors-série des Annales de Normandie. G.S. Trebutien [Préface par J.-Cl. Polet ] 1985, pp. 3-198.) An exceptional copy printed on large Holland paper in a sober contemporary binding.  B. Mancel Caen 1845 11,5x15cm relié

      London: Longman, Brown, Green and Longmans, 1845. Octavo, with a large folding map, frontispiece, 19 engraved and lithographed plates (including a folding geological schemata); some wear but generally very good in original blind-blocked publisher's cloth, endpapers renewed, some staining of the rear board, expertly rebacked retaining original cloth spine. Robert Edwards Collection. First edition of Count Strezlecki's remarkable account of the geology of south-eastern Australia derived from his extensive travels exceeding 7,000 miles in distance.Strzelecki travelled on foot with James Macarthur and a small party through New South Wales and across the Australian Alps, making the first ascent of Mount Kosciusko, which he named in honour of the Polish patriot. The party travelled south into Gippsland, which he named after the Governor and falsely claimed to have discovered, and then into Tasmania. Strzelecki's book marked the foundation of Australian palaeontology, and he was awarded the founder's medal of the Royal Geographical Society in London. It is remarkable for the fine lithographic plates of fossilised flora and fauna, as well as a large folding chart of south-eastern Australia and Tasmania coloured according to geological zones.

        The Improvisatore: or, Life in Italy. From the Danish Translated by Mary Howitt. In Two Volumes. Vol. I - II (all).

      Ldn., 1845. Uncut in the orig. hclothbdg.s w. the printed title-labels on backs. Bdg.s w. traces of use. Internally clean. Very well-preserved and original condition w. both halftitles. First edition of the first of H.C. Andersen's works to appear in English. The Danish first edition is from 1835. Ex libri from "Mansfield Forster Mills" and "Richard Klein".As early as during the 1830'ies Andersen's works began to appear in German translations, and Andersen anxiously kept an eye on the success of his works in other European countries. He was very eager to have his works translated into other European languages, , and as soon as the German translations began to appear he began thinking about English and Frensch translations. In 1837 he states in a letter to Henriette Hanck: "Gid jeg maate opnaa den Glæde, at en af mine Romaner kom ud paa Engelsk; det ville fornøie mig særdeles; dog, paa Fransk skaffes nok flest Læsere..." (Bredsdorff, Andersen og England, p. 42) (i.e.: I wish to gain the pleasure of one of my novels appearing in English; it would bring me grat joy; though, in French there will probably be more to read it..." ([own translation]).The honour of introducing Andersen and his writing to England and the English speaking market befell Mary Howitt, the famous English poet and translator. She had learned German on some of her trips to Germany and Austria, and through German translations she got aquanted with the name of Hans Christian Andersen, and during the winter of 1844-45 she translated int English the very first of Andersen's works to appear in this language, "The Improvisatore...". Andersen had received a copy of it even before Mary Howitt sent him one along with a letter, in which she among other things says the following: "But it was not Sweden alone which had rich treasures of literature - there was the same in Denmark, and even before Ingemann we placed the name of Andersen. In February this translation of your Improvisatore was published - and I am glad to say it has made you many friends. Your name is now an honoured one in England... I am sorry not to be able to send you a copy of "Only a Fiddler" and "O.T.", which will be published at the end of this month..." (In: Bredsdoff, Andersen og England, p. 45").

      Librairie Orientale Mme veuve Dondey-Dupré 1845 - Deux grands et forts in-8° relié demi-chagrin grenat, titre gravé, plats de couverture conservés. Tome I (1841) : première partie : LI, 294, [1](table), 2 planches hors-texte. deuxième partie : XII, 296 pages. tampons de biliothèque américaine annulé pour cause de doubles. La carte en fin du tome I, manquante a été remplacé par un scan. Tome II (1845) : première partie : LXIV, 323 pages, 1 planche dépliante hors-texte ; deuxième partie, 271 pages, 1 carte dépliante et 1 planche hors-texte. Quelques menues rousseurs, très marginales. Société fondée par le médecin et naturaliste français, William Edwards (1777-1842) avec les objectifs suivants : "les principaux éléments qui servent à distinguer les races humaines sont l'organisation physique, le caractère intellectuel et moral, les langues et les traditions historiques. Ces éléments divers n'ont pas été encore étudiés de manière à constituer par ses véritables bases la science de l'ethnologie. C'est afin d'y parvenir par une suite d'observations et d'établir quelles sont en réalité les différentes races humaines, que s'est formée à Paris, la Société Ethnologique. Les "Mémoires" valent moins par les théories polygénistes qui les inspirent - bien banales à cette époque - que par l'application à l'un d'entre eux d'une méthode documentaire nouvelle, la photographie. Ce n'est que bien des decennies plus tard que d'autres machines enregistreuses - le cinématographe puis le magnétophone - viendront de nouveau transformer les conditions du travail ethnographique. le tome I comprend 6 mémoires originaux : W.F. Edwards : des caractères physiologistes des races humaines ; W.F. Edwards : Mémoire sur l'anthropologie ; Berthelot : Mémoire sur les Guanches ; Pavie : Mémoire sur les Parsis ; Benet : De l'origine et des moeurs des Sicks ; Jackson : Des arts et des inventions de la vie sauvage ; Gustave d Eichthal : Histoire et origine des Foulas ou fellans (peuls ou foulbés) - - - Le tome II contient les mémoires suivants : W.F. Edwards : De l'influence des races sur le caractère national ; W.F. Edwards : Fragments d'un mémoire sur les Gaëls ; L. Vivien : Recherches sur l'histoire de l'anthropologie ; Sabin Berthelot : Deuxième mémoire sur les Guanches ; Gustave d'Eichthal : Etudes sur l'histoire primitive des races océaniennes et américaines ; M. d'Avezac : Notice sur le pays et le peuple des Yébous en Afrique. Dans le mémoire sur les Guanches, le naturaliste Sabin Berthelot (1794-1880) tente de retracer l'histoire d'un peuple, d'origine berbère semble-t'il, qui occupait les Iles Canaries avant la conquête espagnole. le mémoire de 1845 comprend une planche hors-texte, sur papier fort, représentant un guanche dont le portrait a été lithographié par A. Aulaire d'après un daguerréotype de Louis-Auguste Bisson datant de 1841 ou 1842. Une première en matière d'utilisation de la photographie en ethnologie [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Porträtbüste des Louis Landsberg, im Dreiviertelprofil nach links, den Beschauer anblickend.

      - Aquarell und Deckfarben, partiell mit Gummi Arrabicum lasiert, über Bleistift, auf bräunlichem Zeichenkarton, entlang des rechten Randes signiert, bezeichnet und datiert „M. Stohl nach Rud. Lehmann. Rom 1845", am Unterrand bezeichnet. 19,3:15,2 cm. Stohl, der seine Ausbildung an der Wiener Kunstakademie absolvierte, war gerade in den 50er und 60er Jahren als Porträtmaler geschätzt und erhielt insbesondere vom Adel und höfischen Kreisen zahlreiche Porträtaufträge. Eine Romreise brachte ihm die Bekanntschaft der russischen Großfürstin Maria Nicolajewna, die seine Berufung als Hofmaler nach St. Petersburg veranlaßte. Im Auftrag des russischen Hofes fertigte er über 800 Kopien in Aquarell nach Gemälden Alter Meister an. Rudolf Lehmann (1819 Ottensen b. Hamburg – Bournemede bei Bushe/England 1905) lebte 1835-1837 in Paris und besuchte die École des Beaux-Arts. Nach seiner Rückkehr aus Frankreich lebte er zunächst in München, wo er 1838/39 Schüler von P. von Cornelius (1783-1867) und W. von Kaulbach (1805-1874) war. 1838 reiste er nach Rom und blieb dort ansässig bis 1846. 1850 siedelte er nach London um. Erneute Aufenthalte in Rom sind für die Jahre 1850, 1855, 1863 und 1864 zu belegen. Lehmanns künstlerischer Schwerpunkt lag auf Genrethemen, Schilderungen vom täglichen Leben in Rom und seiner Umgebung, aber auch auf der Porträtmalerei, die ihm große Bekanntheit einbrachte.

        De la folie considérée sous le point de vue pathologique, philosophique, historique et judiciaire, etc

      2 volumes de [1] f. de Paris, J.-B. Baillière, 1845, in-8, 2 volumes de [1] f. de fx-titre, VIII-534 pp. + VII-522-[1] pp, demi-chagrin rouge de l'époque, dos à faux nerfs, PREMIERE EDITION. Un des ouvrages les plus complets au point de vue médical sur la lycanthropie, démonologie, vampirisme, sorcellerie, etc. Dans cet ouvrage, Calmeil (1798-1895) traite notamment des grandes épidémies de délire comme la théomanie, la démonopathie, la démonolâtrie ou la zoanthropie. La théomanie atteint des populations presque entières qui croient avoir reçu des inspirations divines, ont des extases, des spasmes, des convulsions, etc. La démonolâtrie se rencontre surtout parmi les gens des campagnes qui sont soumis au démon. Les malades atteints de démonopathie étaient connus sous le nom de "possédés". Fréquente dans les couvents, elle s'accompagne de catalepsie et de violents phénomènes hystériques. Enfin, les zoanthropes se croyaient par moments transformés en bêtes. Calmeil illustre la théomanie en prenant entre autre l'exemple de Jeanne d'Arc qui selon lui "ne fit pas preuve d'une bonne logique en ajoutant foi à ses propres visions". Quelques rousseurs. Dos habilement restaurés. Waller, n°12861 a. Semelaigne I, 233. Caillet 1960.

        The overland guide-book; a complete vade-mecum for the overland traveller.

      London: Wm. H. Allen and Co., 1845. 8vo., two folding maps printed on silk, 6 engraved folding plates showing 8 ship plans, 3 whole-page and 8 smaller woodcuts, viii + (2) + 134 + (2)pp., followed at the end of the volume with 40pp. of advertisements (including priced lists of travellers' clothes and other supplies), original blind-stamped cloth, rebacked, gilt title on spine, but the binding generally rather worn, endpapers renewed. A good sound copy with occasional readers' annotations. First edition. An interesting attempt 'to combine, in a compact and convenient form, all the information necessary to the prosecution of the journey overland to India and vice versa' [Introduction]. The term 'overland' in fact was commonly used to refer to access to India by means of steam-vessels via the Mediterranean and the Red Sea as opposed to the long sea voyage via the Cape. The several ships used by the Peninsular and Oriental Company (P. & O.) are here illustrated in detailed plan form to enable prospective passengers travelling to Alexandria and beyond to make informed choices when making travel plans. The author provides a great deal of specific information about rules on board, ticket prices, facilities provided, clothes, import charges &c. &c. Passengers returning to England were allowed to bring home bullion, diamonds, live creatures, pictures, and plants and trees duty free. Barber himself was an enthusiastic promoter of steam communication with India.

        Erinnerung an München

      Artist: ; issued in: ; date: 1845 - - technic: Steel engraving; colorit: colored; condition: Folded; size in cm : 46,5 x 59 - description: Very decorative souvenier page of Munich with a city map in the center, sourrounded by 27 views of important and historique buildings and places. Also some views of Munich from different directions, from the south, north east and west.The name of the city is derived from the Old/Middle High German term Munichen, meaning by the monks. It derives from the monks of the Benedictine order who ran a monastery at the place that was later to become the Old Town of Munich; hence the monk depicted on the city's coat of arms. Munich was first mentioned in 1158. From 1255 the city was seat of the Bavarian Dukes. Black and gold ? the colours of the Holy Roman Empire ? have been the city's official colours since the time of Ludwig the Bavarian, when it was an imperial residence. Following a final reunification of the Wittelsbachian Duchy of Bavaria, previously divided and sub-divided for more than 200 years, the town became the country's sole capital in 1506. Catholic Munich was a cultural stronghold of the Counter-Reformation and a political point of divergence during the resulting Thirty Years' War, but remained physically untouched despite an occupation by the Protestant Swedes; as the townsfolk would rather open the gates of their town than risk siege and almost inevitable destruction. Like wide parts of the Holy Roman Empire, the area recovered slowly economically. Having evolved from a duchy's capital into that of an electorate (1623), and later a sovereign kingdom (1806), Munich has been a centre of arts, culture and science since the early 19th century.

        Narrative of the United States Exploring Expedition, during the Years 1838, 1839, 1840, 1841, 1842 With Illustrations and Maps. In Five Volumes.

      Philadelphia: Lea and Blanchard, 1845 - 5 volumes, medium octavo. Original publisher's brown vertical fine-ribbed cloth, American arms in gilt on front cover and in blind on rear cover, spines blindstamped, lettered gilt and with large gilt anchor at foot. Extremities a little worn, some rubbing to sides, some foxing, dampstain at foot of last few gatherings of vol. 5, a good set in unrestored original condition. 11 maps, 10 folding, nearly 300 woodcut illustrations in text including numerous examples of native (principally South Seas) music and sketch maps; tables and appendices, general index at end. Contemporary American bookplates. Third Edition overall. In smaller format than the imperial octavo edition of the same year, this edition was reprinted from stereos of that edition but without the plates or accompanying atlas and with 47 woodcuts substituted for the steel vignettes. The text is complete, with no abridgement. The edition was 3000 copies. Wilkes's expedition explored the American Pacific coasts, the islands of the South Pacific and Antarctica, marking an important step in the growth of American self-reliance. Until this date, the American navy was still using British maps. As originally conceived in 1828, the expedition was merely intended to promote commerce and protect American investments in the whaling and sealing industries in the South Seas. By the time the expedition set off in 1836, its crew augmented with a body of scientists and draughtsmen including Titian Ramsey Peale, Horatio Hale, James Drayton and Alfred Agate (but not Nathaniel Hawthorne who had applied but been turned down), it had acquired the additional desire "to extend the bounds of science, and promote the acquisition of knowledge". Among the expedition's numerous accomplishments were the first rigorous survey of Antarctica, the best map of the California coast to date, a collection of 50,000 plant and animal samples, 5,000 anthropological samples (including clothing and pottery), and one of the finest collections of coral samples in the world, now at the Smithsonian.

        ??????????????????????? [K?ka sannen Amerik-sen narabini K?m? zokkoku Dennemarku-se ikken ]. On the American Ships and the Ship of Denmark under the Rule of Holland, Which Arrived in 1846.

      (circa1846).. 12 folded leaves (two detached), some light soiling, creasing at corners, a little insect damaged in a few places causing the loss of a few characters. 24 x 17cm. This manuscript copy of a Japanese letter discusses the arrival at Uraga of the two American ships led by James Biddle and the Danish ship Galathea. James Biddle preceeded Commodore Perry's arrival in Japan by seven years. His mission being to open trade between Japan and the United States. Just as Perry was to do years later, the American ships anchored off Uraga at the entrance to Edo Bay, but due to misunderstandings and the Japanese authorities very decided lack of interest in trading with the United States, his mission was not successful. The Danish ship, Galathea was on a two year voyage around the world (1845 - 1847) engaging in scientific research, working on political goals such as the sale of the Danish colonies in India to the East India Company and searching for new trading opportunities. Her visit to Uraga was also unwelcome and she left for the United States. .

Umfaßt: Tl.1: Die Burgfrau und das Erbfräulein. / Tl.2: Die Huldigung und die Verschwörung. / Tl.3: Der Hexenprozeß. - Roman über die österreichische adlige Burgherrin und frühe Frauenrechtlerin Elisabeth Katharina Freifrau von Galler (um 1607-1672) genannt die Gallerin oder die schlimme Liesl, die als eine der tatkräftigsten Frauen der steirischen Geschichte gilt. Verfasser ist der bedeutende österr. Orientalist und Diplomat Joseph von Hammer-Purgstall, der 1774 in Graz als Joseph von Hammer geboren wurde. Nachdem er nach dem Tod seines Freundes Graf Wenzel Johann Purgstall und dessen Sohnes von der aus Schottland stammenden Gräfin Jane Anne von Purgstall adoptiert wurde, die ihn als Erben von Schloss Hainfeld in der Steiermark einschließlich der dortigen Fideikommissherrschaft einsetzte, wurde er 1835 unter dem Namen von Hammer-Purgstall in den Freiherrnstand erhoben. Die zahlreichen Dokumente über die Gallerin, die durch diese Erbschaft in seinen Besitz kamen, dienten ihm als Material für den vorliegenden Roman.
