        Catalogo metodico dei Pesci Europei.

      Napoli, Stamperia e Cartiere del Fibreno, 1846. 4to (315 x 220mm). pp. 97, (3), vignette of fishes on title. Contemporary half calf, gilt lettering on spine, marbled sides. A very interesting association copy from the library of Jean Baptiste Verany (1800-1865) one of the founders of the Nice Natural History Museum. An interleaved copy with numerous annotations by Verany, of which many full page, and 2 small drawings of fishes. Although Verany's name does not appear the book is definitely from his library and the copious notes by this well know zoologist. Charles Lucien Bonaparte was the nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte. Despite his family connections and the disruptions that followed the Napoleonic era, he became a competent and highly respected naturalist. His major work is his 'Iconografia della Fauna Italica' published from 1832-41. "Bonaparte tried to establish our knowledge of various zoological groups once and for all, and published numerous synopses, conspectuses, and catalogs"(DSB). Dean I, p. 149.

        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.

        Beiträge zur Naturgeschichte der Vorwelt. Herausgegeben von Wilh. Dunker und Herm. von Meyer (& K.A. Zittel).

      Cassel, Theodor Fischer/ Stuttgart, Schweizerbart, (1846-) 1851-1894. Volumes 1-40. With 1743, mostly lithographed plates of which some tinted, 2 maps. Contemporary half calf, spines with green gilt lettered label, marbled sides. A very rare, almost complete, early run of this most important paleontological periodical. 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'.

        Plate CI The Jaquar. (Felis Onca, Linn) The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America

      Philadelphia: Audubon, J.J. , 1846. Imperial Folio Edition Fine with rich original hand-coloring. Plate CI (101). Felis Onca, Linn. The Jaquar. Original and rare hand-colored lithograph (21 x 27 inches, 533.4 x 686.8 mm) by JT Bowen after painting by John James Audubon, FRS, FLS for the Imperial Folio Edition of the Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America. This Jaquar is in Very Fine condition with bright and rich original hand-coloring, the brightest we have seen to date. Expertly custom framed in conservation materials, as shown, by Lowry-James Rare Prints & Books, ABAA, ILAB. Framed size is 36 x 31 inches, 914 x 787.4 mm. The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America (Philadelphia c.1845-48) represents the culmination of a lifelong dream held by America's most prominent naturalist and visionary, John James Audubon (1785-1851). Following the completion of his magnum opus, the Double Elephant Folio Edition of Birds of America, c. 1824-38, Audubon was at liberty to pursue a project close to his heart, large scale portraits of all of North America's native animals. Audubon's effort to render America four-legged (thus quadruped) mammals in their natural settings pioneered the way for an entire culture of naturalist artists and engravers. Once the animals were placed within their native habitat, inspired by Audubon's classical composition and watchful eye, most subsequent naturalist painters rarely presented animals and birds void of a full botanical perch, landscaped setting, or woodland background. Very few, if any naturalist artists returned to the solo vignette so commonly found in most natural history works from the previous three centuries. Audubon's dream to complete this monumental work was made manifest through the artistic and clerical assistance of his two sons, John Woodhouse and Victor Gifford, as well as the Reverend John Bachman, who contributed the excellent text for the production. Today, the tale of Audubon's westward journey to hunt and gather skins and specimens and thus inspiration to complete the 155 paintings for the Quadrupeds is common enough. The story of how he sold his work through subscription format and created a smaller (Royal Octavo Edition) as a more democratic and affordable option to the production has been told religiously, and in great detail, by anyone reviewing these masterpieces once again. Yet through these critiques, America's premier ornithologist, painter and naturalist has gained his rightful place among the masters of Animal Portraiture, painters like Edwin Landseer and George Stubbs. Regardless of any criticism his artistic practices and personal affairs may have encountered, Audubon's legacy has enriched our understanding and appreciation of America's native species, both birds and animals. In addition, through Audubon's paintings we are offered the very first glimpses of the American landscape west of the Mississippi, as his work predates that of the Hudson River Artists. Although Lowry-James Rare Prints & Books has featured the monumental edition of Audubon's work since 1989, this new collection of plates is the strongest body of mammals we have has the good fortune to acquire. These plates have not seen the light of day, thus the coloring of each of the plates is strong and rich, hand-painted with a multitude of subtle colors which are often lost to fading. In a word, these prints are the finest Audubon animals available, and must been seen. (Blum, Picturing Nature, Princeton: Princeton University Press, 1993. Sabin 2367, Wood 208).

      xiii, 580, 12 pp. 8vo. Publisher's brown cloth stamped in blind, gilt title and ship vignette on spine. First edition. Illus. with a steel-engraved frontispiece and 7 further steel-engraved plates, all with tissue guards, 5 wood-engraved plates, and a few in-text woodcuts. Sabin 8658. Howes B877. Hill 197 (London ed.). Ferguson 4243. Forster 11. Browne?s scarcest book, complete with the rare frontispiece, ?Cutting In and Trying Out'. "Browne, an Irishman by birth and an American by adoption, was by profession a newspaperman and civil servant. He earned some renown as a traveler and travel writer. In 1848 he was sent to California as a treasury officer and he spent the rest of his life, except for trips, in the West. Since Browne knew shorthand, he was appointed as recording secretary of the California Constitutional Convention. 'Etchings..' was his first book, and was written in large part to show what life was like on a whale ship, in order to better the lot of seaman. The narrative provides one of the few accounts of life in the whaling fleet of the 1840s, written by an intelligent and sensitive observer. Brown was influenced by Richard Henry Dana and, in turn, was imitated by Herman Melville, " (Hill, Voyages, 2nd. ed., p. 70). Melville, in fact, reviewed the work favorably (Piazza Tales) and it was one of the two volumes he used extensively to augment his own somewhat limited whaling experiences. Extremities worn with minor loss at foot of spine, boards rubbed, early owner's pencil inscription on verso of frontispiece, scattered foxing, a few signatures re-sewn and askew, still about very good for a title usually found in poor condition.

        Route Across the Rocky Mountains, with a description of Oregon and California: their geographical features, their resources, soil, climate, productions

      Lafayette, In.: John B. Semans, printer, 1846. Octavo. 152pp. (Scattered spotting). Original half cloth and plain paper boards (covers rubbed, spine label damaged), cloth chemise, half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. A very rare key overland guide, in very good original condition. One of the earliest and rarest of overland guide books to the Oregon Trail, chronologically the second such guide, preceded only by the Hastings guide of 1845. The authors went overland to Oregon in 1843. Winter went to California the following year, then returned to Indiana, where he arranged to publish this guidebook in time for the 1846 emigrant season. The guide provides a detailed account of the 1843 trip, a long description of Oregon, Winter's route to California, the Bear Flag movement, gold at Santa Barbara, and of northern California. The return route from California is also described, and there is a table of distances in the rear. Winter eventually settled in the Napa-Sonoma area. This is the issue with corrected text on pages 26 and 36. A rarity, afforded a "d" by Howes, who calls it "one of the greatest of early overland narratives." A key guide and important work of Western Americana. Cowan I, p.315; Graff 2221; Howes J142, "d."; Sabin 36260; Streeter Sale 3145; Wagner-Camp 122.

        Ueber die Isolirung der Sinne, als Basis eines neuen Systems der Isolirung der Strafgefangenen

      Weimar, Verlag des Landes-Industrie-Comptoirs 1846.. 4to, 24 p., 5 lithographed plates, original wrappers, in later card covers. Froriep was a respected doctor in Weimar, a correspondent of Goethe in earlier years, and author of a much used and reprinted medical textbook. This excursion into prison reform is eccentric, and seems to have dropped like a stone: we locate just 4 copies - BL, Berkeley, and two in Germany (the copy at the Anna Amalia library in Weimar itself was lost in the 2004 fire). Froriep analyses the "Philadelphia system", and practices in Auburn, where prison reform took the form of keeping prisoners in solitary confinement in order to avoid their further mutual moral corruption. The Philadelphia system required separate cells: Froriep's scheme was far more economical: to isolate the prisoners' senses, by means of masks etc. The five plates give a good idea of this, shall we say inhumane?, proposal.

        PICTURES FROM ITALY

      1846. hardcover. Dickens, Charles. PICTURES FROM ITALY. With Vignette Illustrations on Wood by Samuel Palmer. London: Published for the Author by Bradbury & Evans, 1846. 2 pp undated preliminary ads plus 2 pp undated ads. Original blue cloth. First Edition of Dickens's account of his 1844 tour of Italy. His description of the coaching trips which took him from place to place for five months is full of wonderful observations of his fellow-men... His account of a public execution in Rome is remarkable -- his emotional reaction is held firmly in control but revulsion at the whole proceeding is implicit in every line. [CGEL] Smith cites bindings both of fine-diaper cloth and of horizontally-ribbed cloth (no priority -- see his Note 3); there are also copies in vertically-ribbed cloth. This copy is in horizontally-ribbed cloth, and is in near-fine condition (volume slightly aslant, front endpaper slightly cracked, one small front-cover spot). PICTURES FROM ITALY used to be rather common, but attractive copies such as this are becoming increasingly scarce. Smith II pp 44-58.NONFICTION (Sumner & Stillman Code:11810)

        A Treatise on the Motive Powers which Produce the Circulation of the Blood

      New York: Wiley and Putnam, 1846 First edition. Contemporary green blindstamped cloth with spine lettering in gilt. Octavo. Woodcuts in text, one full-page. Spine darkened, covers with a few light stains. Intermittent light stains at lower margin, especially in first part of text. Light foxing. Contemporary ownership signature on title-page. Still, quite a good, tight copy. Emma Willard (1787-1870) was an educational reformer who opened the Troy Female Seminary in 1814 as the first school in the United States to offer higher education for women. She also earned her living by writing, producing a number of textbooks and books on history and geography, including The Woodbridge and Willard Geographies and Atlases (1823), and History of the United States, or Republic of America (1828). She was a strong advocate of science education for women, and this is her primary scientific publication, though her sister, Almira H. Lincoln Phelps (1793-1884), the school's vice-principal, wrote several others (Lectures on Botany, 1829, Familiar Lectures on Natural Philosophy, 1837; Familiar Lectures on Chemistry, 1838). The present work presents an ill-founded, but interestingly argued, theory supported by original experiments of a caloric action to the circulation of blood in which the seat of power is the lungs rather than the heart. Nonetheless, it is important as an early work by an American woman in the sciences, which helped pave the way for other scientific writings by women.

        POEMS BY CURRER, ELLIS AND ACTON BELL

      Smith Elder and Co 1846 [1848].. In usual second state with Smith Elder Title page. Standard publisher's cloth (as described by Walter E Smith) Olive green vertically ribbed cloth with blind decorated borders and Lyre design. Light yellow end papers. 1 p advert preceeding title page, Smith Elder title page. 2p contents. Text pp. 165. Bound without errata but with 16pp earliest state adverts ( May 1848). Cloth in overall good condition. Light spine fade, but not as much as usual. Small split to top back hinge, slight rubbing and minor bend to board edges. A couple of small fade areas to back board, slight board marking.. Internally tight and good copy. The first issue of the poems, under the Aylott and Jones imprint allegedly sold, or gave away only 39 copies of a thousand produced. The presence of the preliminary advert and the earliest advert sheets at the back of this copy point to this being an early state. Smith Elder had only sold 279 copies by 1853. By 1855 they had sold a further 126 copies. There was a binding up of 450 in 1857 to coincide with the publication of Gaskell's Life of Bronte. Although one can never be totally sure copies with later dates on inscriptions or later adverts probably point to a later binding up of stock, this copy with the 1848 adverts suggests one of the first 279 copies sold by Smith Elder, and as these issue can also display two later catalogues of 1849 and 1850, this suggests earlier in the run rather than later.

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

      Brussels: M. Haney, 1846 First edition. Original printed wrappers. Affixed to the bottom portion of the front wrappers is a printed slip for the Paris publisher, Jules Renouard, who apparently acquired part of the edition. . Large octavo. Wrappers partially browned, spine split in several places, but a very good copy, in its original state, in a full morocco clamshell slipcase. Quetelet (1796-1874) was a Belgian astronomer, mathematician, statistician and sociologist. He founded and directed the Brussels Observatory. He became interested in the Ë™young science of probability and statistics as an astronomer to explain measurement errors, but became one of the first to see its applications to the social sciences. He understood the complexities of social phenomena and became interested in using what he called "social physics" as a tool to explain crime rates, marital rates, suicide rates, etc. In 1835, he published Sur l'homme et le développement des ses faculties, essai d'une physique sociale, which made him famous throughout Europe. These letters to the Grand Duke of Saxe Coburg and Gotha are an important sequel to that work. Cajori calls them "Quetelet's best researches on the application of probability to the physical and social sciences" and notes: "He laid emphasis on the 'law of large numbers,' which was advanced also by the Frenchman S.D. Poisson and discussed by the German W. Lexis (1877), the Scandinavians H. Westergaard and Carl Charlier, and the Russian Pafnuti Liwowich Chebichev (1821-1894) of the University of Petrograd." Quetelet's work was enormously influential to Francis Galton, who expanded upon it in Hereditary Genius.
