        An Album of Original Watercolors of Peoples of South America and Polynesia while on Tour of Duty in the Pacific, aboard H.M.S. Talbot, October 1843 - October 1846

      4to., (8 x 6 inches). One fine window-mounted pen and ink drawing and 34 original watercolors (image size: 6 x 4 inches), inscribed with captions beneath the images and extensively on the verso and signed and dated by Burney. 20th-century half brown morocco, gilt (extremities a bit rubbed). The fine watercolors depict the exotic peoples, and their costumes and their customs, encountered by Lieut., Burney of the Royal Marines during his tour of duty in the Pacific aboard the corvette H.M.S. Talbot. The majority of the watercolors are copies executed by a local artist of the people of Lima, but Burney also records images from life of Chili, Mexico, Peru; and of particular interest Hawaii and the Sandwich Islands: Peru. "Llamas. Waiting till they are Laden. July 30th 1846" Peru. "A Llama being laden. August 5th 1846" "A Mexican Woman making Tortillas. (The Bread of the Country." August 8th 1846. Mexico. "A Man dragging a Cask of Water. Mazatlan. August 9th 1846" "Mexicans. July 13th 1846" "Peruvians. July 12th 1846" Mazatlan, San Blas. Mexico. "A Muletier carrying a bale of Grass. Aug. 10th 1846."

October 10th 1846" H.M.S. Talbot under the command of Captain Sir Thomas Thompson, Bart., was active in the Pacific for much of the 1840s, protecting British interests in the area against those of the French and the Americans. On November 28th of 1843 Britain and France had signed an agreement "to consider the Sandwich Islands as an Independent State, and never to take possession, neither directly or under the title of Protectorate, or under any other form, of any part of the territory of which they are composed." (from the Proclamation). The Talbot is recorded as being present on numerous occasions in the Sandwich Islands between 1843 and 1845, following a brief period of British rule there, and in Tahiti - most famously in January of 1843 when the corvette saluted the old Tahitian flag with its guns in defiance of the French protectorate..

        LIFE OF THE AMIR DOST MOHAMMED KHAN OF KABUL. With his Political Proceedings towards the English, Russian, and Persian Governments, including the Victory and Disasters of the British Army in Afghanistan

      Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans. London. 1846. FIRST EDITION. 2 VOLUMES. 8vo. (9.1 x 6 inches). 19 lithographic portraits, printed on India paper and mounted. Publisher's forest green fine combed cloth, title gilt to spines, blind panelling and central lozenge to the boards, mid-cream surface-paper endpapers. Very slightly rubbed, some off-setting from the plates, but overall a superb set in the original cloth. A remarkably well-preserved set of this highly desirable work. ----- Perhaps the key source for political and diplomatic background to the First Afghan War. Mohan Lal was "Bokhara" Burnes's most important intelligence operative, travelling extensively in Persia and Afghanistan and running a string of agents for the British. In 1841, as the situation in Kabul became critical, Lal tried to warn Burnes of the fact that he was the focus of rising discontent, but the Englishman foolishly believed that he would be able to talk his way out of the situation. Lal escaped the ensuing bloodbath, continuing to supply information from the Afghan capital. In 1844 he visited Scotland to return some papers to the Burnes family, the Montrose Review describing him then in glowing, if condescending, terms; "He is a very handsome man, of 28 years; and, when arrayed in the costly and gorgeous costume of his country, affords a favourable specimen of the Asiatic. But this is the least of his merits: his countenance beams with intelligence, and his intercourse with Europeans has enabled him to adapt himself, with perfect tact, to all their habits and modes of thinking, so that he can sustain with ease and propriety his part in any general conversation. We understand he has been urgently recalled to London â€Â¦" He remained in London for some time, the present work being written there and dedicated with permission to Queen Victoria, but he never received the recognition from the British government that he felt he deserved. As a result of his service in Muslim countries, he had been excommunicated by the Kashmiri Pandit community, eventually converting to Islam, he died an isolated and embittered man in Delhi in 1877.

        The Belfry of Bruges and Other Poems

      Cambridge: John Owen. 1846. First. First edition. Bound by Stikeman and Co. in three quarter green morocco with marbled endpapers, raised bands, and top edge gilt. Very good plus with mild wear to the extremities and along the front hinge. With a laid in Autograph Note Initialed by Longfellow to his publisher James T. Fields, dated 1875: "My Dear Fields, I cannot do it. I had rather fight the battle of Bunker's Hill. You must manage the matter for me. If Mr. Alden will give the sum you mention, he shall have the poem. Your Centennial friend, H.W.S." The note, evidently removed a little unevenly from a small notebook, is very good with some clean creases from folding, a short and neat tear through the top of a single letter, and a little residue on the recto. Includes two well-known Longfellow compositions: "The Arrow and the Song" ("I shot an arrow in the air...") and "Retribution" ("Though the mills of God grind slowly"). BAL 12083. .

        Lettres à Son Altesse Royale le Duc regnant de Saxe-Coburg et Gotha sur la théorie des probabilités, appliquée aux science morales et politiques.

      Bruxelles: M. Hayez, 1846. - 3 leaves, iv, 450 pp. Recent 3/4 morocco and cloth, with original front wrapper bound in (note: the photo shows the wrapper prior to rebinding). A Very Good, uncut, large copy (183 mm x 275 mm), largely in its original state. 'This book is really an original, if elementary, treatise on probability and social statistics, written in the form of a series of letters to the Belgian king's two nephews, Ernst (the duke to whom the book was dedicated) and Albert (who by 1846 was husband to Queen Victoria of Great Britain). Quetelet had tutored the two in the 1830's, and in writing his book as a series of letters he was adopting a form that had been used with great success by Euler in 1768, with Letters to a German Princess' (Stigler, History of Statistics, p. 206). 'In his autobiography Galton explains how he first encountered Quetelet's statistical methods in 1863, two years before the publication of his first article on heredity. He had immediately been attracted to Quetelet's examination of the 'law of deviation from an average,' which he had discovered when reading the 1849 English translation of Quetelet's 1846 book Lettres à Son Altesse Royale le Duc regnant de Saxe-Coburg et Gotha sur la théorie des probabilités, appliquée aux science morales et politiques. . . . In his 1846 Lettres, Quetelet used [Laplace's curve of 'possible error'] to interpret anthropomorphic data, thus giving it a new methodological significance, as has been pointed out by Stigler. Quetelet used Laplace's theorem to determine whether a series of real objects (and not mere measures) could be considered homogeneous. Laplace's theorem implied that a group of measures affected by the same major causes, and varying only in terms of many minor, accidental causes, should be distributed according to Gauss' law. Quetelet's innovation was to use the Gaussian distribution as a way of detecting groups of homogeneous objects. He thus made explicit what had previously been merely implicit in Laplace's work: a Gaussian (or 'normal' distribution) is a necessary and sufficient condition of homogeneity. The Laplace-Gauss law thus left the arcane realm of the estimation of error (in the measurement of a given object) to become a tool for detecting homogeneity in groups of real objects. In particular, it became a method for identifying 'populations' as objective entities. If, for example, the chest size or stature of soldiers was approximately distributed according to Gauss' law, this would indicate that it was a real population, within which variation was merely accidental. For Quetelet, a Gaussian distribution revealed both order in apparent chaos, and also an underlying ideal type that nature tries to attain, implying that variation has no real significance. This would also explain why Darwin, if he did read Quetelet, would hardly have been attracted by his concept of a 'population' ' (Jean Gayon, Darwinism's Struggle for Survival: Heredity and the Hypothesis of Natural Selection, tr. by Matthew Cobb, 1998, pp. 117-8). 'Quetelet is credited with the first published visual images of normal and skewed probability distributions' (Judy L. Klein, Statistical Visions in Time: A History of Time Series Analysis, 1662-1938, 1997, p. 164). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Lilium elegans, var. incomparabile, var. Alice Wilson

      Henry John Elwes (1846-1922) was a British botanist, naturalist and author, celebrated for his travels throughout Asia, including the Himalayan Mountains, with the Geographical Section of the British Association and noted for his collection of lily specimens. In 1880 Elwes published a spectacular collection of prints depicting various species of one of the world's favorite flowers, the lily.The “Monograph of the Genus Lilium” is the result of a collaborative effort, the organization and text by Elwes and the images by renowned botanical illustrator Walter Hood Fitch. Although Fitch's drawings for Elwes' “Genus Lilium” were the last great works of his career, in his lifetime, Fitch produced nearly 10,000 illustrations.This hand-colored folio size lithograph,Lilium elegans, var. incomparabile, var. Alice Wilson, measures 21.75” x 15” and is in mint condition. This lily is richly colored with a vibrant green stem and full leaves and large red and yellow flowers. The blooming flowers are expertly detailed and naturalistically rendered on this superb lithograph.

        Heraldic Visitations of Wales and Part of the Marches.

      Welsh Manuscript Society, Llandovery 1846 - Heraldic Visitations of Wales and Part of the Marches; Between the Years 1586 and 1613, under the Authority of Clarencieux and Norroy, Two Kings at Arms, By Lewys Dwnn, Deputy Herald at Arms; Transcribed from the Original Manuscripts, and Edited, with. 2 Volumes. In the original green cloth with embossed covers, spine has been relaid, keeping the original labels. Volume 1 - 340 pp + errata. Some very minimal foxing to the first 2 pages. Has a wonderful frontipiece by WL Walton of the Hirlas or drinking horn, presented by King Henry VII to Davydd ab Ieuan of Llwyn Davydd in Cardigan. Volume 2 - 370 pp with a frontispiece showing facsimiles of Autographs. A wonderful and informative book. Meyrick, Sir Samuel Rush (1783-1848), antiquary and historian of arms and armour, born on 26 August 1783, was the only surviving son of John Meyrick (d. 1805), FSA, agent, of Great George Street, Westminster, and Peterborough House, Fulham, and of his wife, Hannah (d. 1832), daughter and coheir of Samuel Rush of Ford House, Hertfordshire, and Chislehurst, Kent. He matriculated from Queen's College, Oxford, in 1800 and graduated BA in 1804, then proceeded MA and BCL in 1810, and DCL in 1811. On 3 October 1803 he married Mary (c.1784-1818), the daughter of James Parry of Llwyn Hywel, Cardiganshire. This early marriage offended his father, who arranged that his property should bypass his son and devolve to his son's children. There was in the event only one son, Llewelyn (1804-1837), who died unmarried before his father; the property then passed to Sir Samuel. His last published work was an edition of Lewis Dwnn's Heraldic Visitation of Wales, for the Society for the Publication of Ancient Welsh Manuscripts (1846). Meyrick died at Goodrich Court on 2 April 1848, and was buried in the churchyard of St Giles's Church there. His property was left to his second cousin Lieutenant-Colonel Augustus Meyrick. The armour was exhibited in Manchester in 1857 and at the South Kensington Museum in 1868, being arranged on both occasions by Planché. The museum failed to buy the collection when it was offered for £50,000, and about 1871 Colonel Meyrick's son and heir sold both the armoury and the art treasures at Goodrich Court. Many of the pieces were bought by the Paris dealer and collector Frederic Spitzer, and some were later acquired by Sir Richard Wallace and are now in the Wallace Collection. Goodrich Court itself was demolished in 1950. (ODNB) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      H.S. Tanner, Philadelphia 1846 - An important and rare map of Mexico and the southwestern United States, depicting Texas in its largest form, the 1846 "Second edition" of the celebrated Tanner map. The present map embraces all of modern Mexico and the southwestern United States of America, and prominently features the new state of Texas with its original extensive boundaries. H.S. Tanner, of Philadelphia, was one of the most esteemed American mapmakers of the first half of the nineteenth-century. His 1822 Map of North America was one of the most influential of the period. In 1825, he excerpted and enlarged the portion of the map pertaining to what was a newly-independent Mexico, which then included the entire American southwest. Tanner's map effectively became the definitive source map for the region. It was brazenly copied in the White Gallaher & White map of 1828, which in turn directly inspired the famous Disturnell map of 1846, the "Treaty map" initially used to consider the redemarcation of the international border following the Mexican-American war. Walter Ristow noted that Tanner produced the first edition of the United States of Mexico map in 1825, and furthermore cited that he "issued 10 variants of one or another of five states" of the map up to 1847. The present map is officially termed as the "1846, second edition", although it is actually the seventh variant of the map to be issued, according to Ristow's classification. It closely follows the "1832, second edition," even including the "April 2nd, 1832" copyright imprint in the lower right corner. At this time, interest in all matters relating to Mexico and Texas amongst the American public was at an all-time high, and it is thought that Tanner hastily prepared this edition in order to capitalize on the commercial opportunities. Tanner did not take the time to avail himself of the most recent geographical advances, and consequently this map is a fascinating cartographic hold-out during a time of unprecedented change. Texas is portrayed as an enormous Mexican state, although it had since 1832 seceded, and later joined the Union as an American state. Its massive territory extends far to the north and west of its modern limits, following the eastern band of the Rio Grande up to its headwaters, up into the 'stovepipe' to a point touching the 42nd parallel. The geographical detailing of most of Texas is quite accurate, as Tanner was well apprised of Stephen F. Austin's surveys, a point underscored by his inclusion of 'Austin's Colony' in east-central Texas. In an improvement to it antecedent, the western portion of the state owes its form to William Emory's map of 1844. The depiction of what is now modern Mexico is quite advanced, in light of Alexander von Humboldt's exhaustive charting of the country. At this time, Tanner elected not to include information from Charles Frémont's ground-breaking map of 1845, based on his own discoveries. The coastline of Alta California still maintains a mythical quality, void of most actual details such as San Francisco Bay, but is replete with imaginary details such as the Buenaventura, Los Mongos, Timpangos and San Felipe Rivers. The interior regions extending all the way into what is now Colorado are shown to be almost completely unknown. A curious prophetic detail is the demarcation of a boundary line between Alta and Baja California, although located to the south of the international border that was to be set in 1848. The map includes a detailed inset depicting the key travel route from the port of Veracruz to Mexico City, the same path taken by U.S. forces during their successful attack on the Mexican capital in 1847. In the spirit of the times, the map also includes two statistical tables, one of distances and the other of population and geographical details of individual states. Tanner, wishing to update this map, produced a "third edition" later that same year that included Frémont's discoveries.

        The Chess Player's Chronicle

      London: H Hurst, 1846 iv+420 pages with diagrams and index. Octavo (8 3/4" x 5 3/4") bound in period cloth with blind stamped covers with gilt insignia, and gilt decoration and lettering to spine. Volume VII (7). (Betts: 7-1) First edition.The Chess Player's Chronicle, founded by Howard Staunton and extant from 1841?"56 and 1859?"62, was the world's first successful English-language magazine devoted exclusively to chess. Various unrelated but identically or similarly named publications were published until 1902. The earliest chess magazine in any language was the French Le Palamède, published in 1836-39 and 1842-47. In 1837 George Walker introduced an English-language magazine, the Philidorian, that was devoted to "chess and other scientific games". Only six issues of it were published, and it "expired in May, 1838". In 1840 or 1841 Staunton bought the fortnightly magazine The British Miscellany and Chess Player's Chronicle. In 1841 it became The Chess Player's Chronicle. In 1843, the Chess Player's Chronicle became a shilling monthly magazine. Staunton "made the inclusion of a large number of games by himself and other leading players of the day a special feature" of the magazine. He also used the magazine as a forum for attacking others. Staunton was the owner and editor of the magazine until the early 1850s, when he sold it to R.B. Brien. O'Brien became editor of the magazine, but was unable to continue its success and discontinued it in 1856 because of financial losses and his own illness. It reappeared in 1859 under the editorship of Ignatz Kolisch, Zytogorski, and Josef Kling, but survived only until July 1862. Thereafter, a number of magazines appeared with the same or similar name (such as Chess Players' Chronicle) appeared. Arthur Skipworth, assisted by William Wayte and Charles Ranken, wrote The Chess Players' Quarterly Chronicle, which was published in York from February 1868 to December 1871. Skipworth, who had left Bilsdale for Tetford Rectory, Horncastle, and John Wisker became the editors of the new The Chess Players' Chronicle in February 1872. Johann Löwenthal began writing for it in 1873. The magazine ran until 1875. In January 1876, it was succeeded by The Chess Player's Chronicle, whose editor-in-chief was J. Jenkin of Helensburgh. Its editorial staff consisted of Jenkin, Skipworth, Ranken, Wayte, and Andrew Hunter of Glasgow. Billed as a "monthly record of provincial chess", it was published at Glasgow, costing sixpence. Its short run under Jenkin's editorship was marked by xenophobia. The February issue stated that the West End Club had "cleared away the disturbing foreign element which infected the Divan" and referring to Wilhelm Steinitz as "the hot-headed little Austrian". Its third and last issue was published in March. The magazine reappeared in January 1877. It was now under Ranken's editorship, assisted by J. Crum, G. B. Fraser, Skipworth, and Wayte. The first issue apologized for "certain offensive statements and insinuations, seriously affecting the honor of some eminent players", and explained that some members of the present editorial staff had only contributed games and other inoffensive material to it in 1875. Ranken continued to edit the magazine until September 1880. In 1881, the title was enlarged to The Chess Player's Chronicle, and Journal of Indoor and Outdoor Sports, and "the magazine's importance in the chess world was no longer the same". None of these magazines compared in quality with what Staunton had achieved, and the success of the British Chess Magazine, by the turn of the century a superb magazine, put an end to the title in 1902.Condition:Corners bumped, earlier owner's stamp to title, recased with new end papers and old spine laid on else a very good copy.

Zahlreiche Karten stammen aus der Hand von Ludwigs und Valeries Sohn, dem späteren königl.-ungarischen Ernährungsminister Ludwig (Lajos) Aladar Fürst zu Windisch-Graetz (1882-1968), der 1925 maßgeblich an der berüchtigten ungarischen Geldwäscheraffäre beteiligt war, in deren Rahmen sich einige Honoritäten um Windisch-Graetz als einen der Köpfe der Irredenta-Bewegung sammelten und Frankreich durch gefälschte französische Francs "heimzahlen" wollten, daß durch die Verträge von Trianon Ungarn mehr als zwei Drittel seines Territoriums und über die Hälfte seiner Einwohner an Rumänien, die Tschechoslowakei, Jugoslawien und Österreich verloren hatte. - Die Karten stammen u. a. aus Backa Topola, Bad Gastein, Bad Reichenhall, Baden bei Wien, Bleder See (auch Veldeser See) mit Schloss Windisch-Graetz, Bozen, Breslau, Brioni, Brixen, Budapest, Cannes, Düsseldorf, Ebergassing, Friesach, Grein, Hallein, Kietrz (deutsch Katscher), Krakau, Landro (Tirol), Lemberg, Liezen, Lovrana, Marienbad, Menton, Monaco, Mo&#154;ovce, München, Neisse, Nizza, Paris, Ratibor, Rom, Salzburg, San Remo, Schloß Hollenegg (Steiermark), Sylt, Trencsin, Truskawez, Lovran, Üdvözlet Makóról, Vahrn bei Brixen, Venedig und Wien.

Von hier berichtet der dort sationierte, die Greuel des Krieges nicht vorausahnende Windisch-Graetz treuherzig an seiner Mutter: "Gestern in Baden gewesen[,] habe Gfin. Stolberg [.] gesehen, welche Dir sehr viel schönes sagen läßt. Tausend Dank für Deine gnädige Karte. Bin sehr wohl Mutter jetzt allerdings glühend heiß auch die Nächte sind drückend [.]".

        Dombey and Son. With Illustrations by H. K. Browne.

      London: Bradbury and Evans, 1846-48. - A fine set of Dombey and Son in original parts, completely unsophisticated, as evidenced by the ink signature on each front wrapper of a contemporary reader, Stephen Blair. Dickens novels in parts with the evidence of the contemporary ownership on each wrapper are rare, and such provenance is virtually the only way to establish that a set has not been sophisticated, "married" or "made up." 19 parts in 20, 8vo, original pictorial blue wrappers. 40 plates. Hatton & Cleaver, pages 227-250. This set agrees with Hatton and Cleaver's description, except that in part 11 there is no ad for Letts & Son, and the ad for Kaye's Pills in part 12 varies slightly from the one described by Hatton & Cleaver. Two of the three misprints noted by Hatton & Cleaver are present: part 11, page 324, "Capitan" for "Captain"; part 14, page 426, "if" is not present; on page 431, the page number is present (in Hatton & Cleaver's earliest issue the number is omitted). Plates foxed - as seems inevitable - some minor paper repairs to the corners of a few spines; a few wrappers slightly soiled and smudged; overall in very nice condition, as issued.

        Pomologie française. Recueil des plus beaux Fruits cultivés en France.

      - Paris, Langlois et Leclercq, 1846. 4 volumes. Folio (413 x 280mm). With three plain and 420 stipple-engraved plates printed in colours and finished by hand. Contemporary half purple calf, gilt spines with monogram. A fine copy of the most attractive fruit book ever produced. This work represents the apogee of French stipple-engraved colour printing, achieved by Redouté and his pupils. The plates first appeared accompanying Antoine Poiteau and Pierre Jean François Turpin's edition of Duhamel du Monceau's 'Traité des Arbres fruitiers', published in 72 parts, 1807-1835. After Turpin's death in 1840 Poiteau, who was the sole author of the text, took control of the plates and removed Turpin's name from them. He also arranged text and plates according to the group of fruit, whereas the 1807-1835 edition was without systematic arrangement.The first volume is devoted to almonds, peaches, apricots, and plums; the second to citrus fruit, grapes, cherries, strawberries, raspberries, etc; the third to gooseberries, currants and pears (over 100 varieties); and the fourth to apples, hazelnuts, walnuts, figs, and even an avocado. Poiteau and Turpin were both outstanding botanical artists in the 'Redouté' style, and utilised the techniques of colour-printing Redouté had devised. The 'Pomologie française' was published by Langlois, the great master of colour printing who supervised much of Redouté's best work. A team of over twenty engravers worked on the plates.Nissen BBI, 551; Great Flower Books p. 55; Stafleu & Cowan 1548; Raphael, An Oak Spring Pomona n. 31. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Volume 2 lacks 6 plates and volume 30 does not contain the monographs published between 1898 and 1906, as the library stopped subscribing after 1894. This beautifully produced periodical containing numerous monographs on fossil shells was edited by the leading 19th century German paleontologists Herm. von Meyer, Wilh. Dunker and K.A. Zittel. All famous German paleontologists of the second half of the 19th century contributed, by publishing larger or smaller monographs in the Palaeontographica. "Ein Hauptverdienst Dunkers war es, mit H. v. Meyer zusammen in 1846 die Palaeontographica begründet zu haben, das die deskriptiven Grundlagen der Paläontologie schuf. Dunker gab mit Meyer 18 dieser Bände heraus, anschliessend noch 6 Bände mit K.A. von Zittel. Besonderer Wert erhalten die zahlreichen paläontologischen Veröffentlichungen durch seine selbstgefertigten, vorzüglichen lithographischen Tafeln" (NDB IV, 199).Added to the present set are some volumes of the 'Palaeontographica Supplementbände' (supplement volumes)Supplement volumes to Palaeontographica were published on individual topics. Volume I (1862-66): Hellmann, A. Die Petrefacten Thüringens nach dem Materiale des Herzogl. Naturalien-Kabinets in Gotha; Volume II (1870-84). We have 4 of the 7 monographs, of which one does not have the plates, it however contains the superbly produced monograph by Zittel in large folio 'Die Fauna der älteren cephalopenführenden Tithonbildungen'; Volume III (1875-82), complete and bound 2 vols containing 20 monographs.A very well preserved set, one fasc. of vol. 30 bound in half cloth.Provenance: Small stamp on some title pages 'Stadtbibliothek Winterthur'.
