        Reflections on New South Wales 1788-1839

      Potts Point: Hordern House, 2001. Quarto, with a portrait, twenty maps and illustrations and eight colour plates; a fine copy in the original green cloth, paper label on front cover. The only edition in English of Freycinet's comprehensive examination of early New South Wales, one of the most important historical texts to deal with Australian settlement, and especially with the city of Sydney. The original text appeared as chapters 29 to 40 of the 'Historique' section of Freycinet's Voyage autour du monde. It was the late Thomas Cullity, with the help of Katharine Pratt and Jen and Bernice Pasquier, who took on the formidable task of making this sometimes very complex text readily accessible to the English-speaking reader. The only English-language version of this exceptionally important piece, this was published in an edition limited to just 300 copies, with a highly limited de luxe version appearing somewhat later.Reflections on New South Wales provides a unique insight into the first fifty years of the colony's development. 'We have tried to demonstrate how a vast country that only recently was wild and almost empty, had passed from its primitive barbaric state to that degree of brilliant prosperity that makes it today the wonder of Europe' wrote Freycinet, one of the most articulate and exacting explorers ever to visit colonial Australia. His two visits to the colony, in 1802 and 1819, afforded him a unique opportunity to examine in detail the first English settlers and their interaction with the indigenous people, the complexities of the first legal system established in New South Wales, the health and welfare establishments, and the first educational facilities. With a finely-tuned and cultivated eye he observed the towns and their buildings, and recorded in detail the social and literary development of the colonial city.Freycinet's text was compiled from direct observations, ideas or comments by Freycinet himself as well as by his travelling companions in the Uranie voyage - Quoy, the chief surgeon, the naturalist Gaimard, and the artists Arago and Pellion - and from information attributed to conversations and correspondence with the leading citizens in the colony - Lachlan and Elizabeth Macquarie, John Macarthur, and Judge Barron Field, to name just a few.

        CABINET OF NATURAL CURIOSITIES

      Taschen 2001 - 1st thus 2001. Fine condition in a fine dustwrapper. Very large format. 18" x 12" by 3". Albertus Seba's "Cabinet of Natural Curiosities" is one of the i8th century's greatest natural history achievements and remains one of the most prized natural history books of all time. Though it was common for men of his profession to collect natural specimens for research purposes, Amsterdam-based pharmacist Albertus Seba(1665-1736) had a passion that led him far beyond the call of duty. His amazing, unprecedented collection of animals, plants and insects from all around the world gained international fame during his lifetime. In 1731, after decades of collecting, he commissioned illustrations of each and every specimen and arranged the publication of a four volume catalogue detailing his entire collection - from strange and exotic plants to snakes, frogs, crocodiles, shellfish, corals, insects, butterflies and more, as well as fantastic beasts such as a seven-headed hydra. The beautiful illustrations transport these creatures from the scientific world of specimens into extremely aesthetic and vivid scenes, where plants and animals intermingle. It is this narrative element that continues to lend the book much of its special fascination. This magnificent reproduction of all 449 of the original plates is taken from a rare, hand coloured copy at the Koninklijke Bibliotheek, The Hague. The introduction provides background information on the intriguing tradition of the cabinet of curiosities to which Seba's colection belonged, while an additional annex written by contemporary scientists provides descriptions of the specimens. A journey into the past and simultaneously a road to rediscovering the wonders of Nature, which remain as vital as ever. 588 pages. Contained in original red corrugated cardboard box that has a small dent hole to front and some wear to edges and tabs. This copy would make a wonderful gift.

        A Hamady Wilde Sampler/ Salutations 1995

      Mt. Horeb,WI: The Perishable Press. 2001. One of 95 signed, numbered copies, printed with hand set /reset Gill Sans type on various hand/mould made papers with a variety of hand-mixed colors. Page size: 11 x 7-7/16 inches; 124 page surfaces, 103 printed, plus tip-ins. Bound by Walter Hamady: hand-sewn in an "almost-not" binding fitted with a heavy wrapper printed with a much enlarged wiggly postal cancellation mark. Here is the long awaited ninth (9th) collaboration intermediated via a Neo-Dadaist and a Magic Realist. It appears to be a desultory chronicle with marginalia and excerpts lifted from a correspondence begun back in 1971. As a bibliographic document, it itemizes 1,159 letters to bring the reader through A.D. 2000, with heavier focus on the year 1995 for the amorphous reason of sequelization. The papers were varied to give strong page character. Includes affixations, scribblings, embossments and rubber stampings. Gill Sans is the typeface set in a varia of compositional theories with self-conscious comment by the typographer, designer and archivist. There are quite a few colors mixed ad hoc for the manual one-owner Vandercook proof press. Also there are quite a few hand-mades and mould-mades to give each page strong character. In addition, there are tip-ins, affixations, embossments and scribings seemingly caused by the untreated drinking water here in the country. The edition is 95 for obvious reasons, signed and numbered in an almost not binding. Ten gatherings hand-sewn on the big W.O. Hickok ledger frame and fitted with a folded wrapper printed with an enlarged, wiggly postal cancellation mark. Selected as one of "Fifty Books of the Year" 1996 AIGA (American Institute of Graphic Art, New York City). PP #127.

        Chymista scepticus vel dubia et paradoxa chymico-physica, circa spagyricorum principa, vulgo dicta hypostatica, Prout proponi & propugnari solent à Turba Alchimistarum. Cui pars premittitur, alterius cujusdem dissertationis ad idem argumentum spectans.Rotterdam: A. Leers, 1662.

      First Latin edition, one of two issues, each published one year after the first English edition (the other was published at London, no priority established), of this milestone in the history of chemistry. "His most important work [where he] set down his corpuscular theory of the constitution of matter, which finally freed chemistry from the restrictions of the Greek concept of the four elements, and was the forerunner of Dalton's atomic theory" (Sparrow). "Boyle's most celebrated book is his <i>Sceptical Chymist</i> ... It contains the germs of many ideas elaborated by Boyle in his later publications" (Partington II, p. 496). This Latin edition is the second edition overall; both issues are very rare: we have been unable to locate any copy of either issue in auction records. OCLC lists six copies of the Rotterdam issue and four of the London issue in the US. The first English edition, though not as rare as this Latin edition, commands a high price - the last complete copy at auction sold for $170,750 in 2001.<br/><br/> "The 'Sceptical Chymist' is one of the great books in the history of scientific thought, for it not only marks the transition from alchemy to modern chemistry but is a plea, couched in most modern terms, for the adoption of the experimental method. Boyle inveighed against the inaccurate terminology of the 'vulgar spagyrists' and the 'hermetick philosophers,' as he termed the alchemists who refused to define their terms ... He predicted that many more [elements] existed than had been described, but insisted that many substances, then thought to be elemental, were, in fact, chemical compounds. He set forth the modern distinction between a compound and a mixture, pointing out that a true chemical compound possessed properties entirely different from either of its constituents" (Fulton). <br/><br/> "The importance of Boyle's book must be sought in his combination of chemistry with physics. His corpuscular theory, and Newton's modification of it, gradually led chemists towards an atomic view of matter ... Boyle distinguished between mixtures and compounds and tried to understand the latter in terms of the simpler chemical entities from which they could be constructed. His argument was designed to lead chemists away from the pure empiricism of his predecessors and to stress the theoretical, experimental and mechanistic elements of chemical science. The <i>Sceptical Chymist</i> is concerned with the relations between chemical substances rather than with transmuting one metal into another or the manufacture of drugs. In this sense the book must be considered as one of the most significant milestones on the way to the chemical revolution of Lavoisier in the late eighteenth century" (PMM).<br/><br/> "Boyle has ben called the founder of modern chemistry, for three reasons: (1) he realized that chemistry is worthy of study for its own sake and not merely as an aid to medicine or alchemy - although he believed in the possibility of the latter; (2) he introduced a rigorous experimental method into chemistry; (3) he gave a clear definition of an element and showed by experiment that the four elements of Aristotle and the three principles of the alchemists (mercury, sulphur and salt) did not deserve to be called elements or principles at all, since none of them could be extracted from bodies" (Partington II, p. 495).<br/><br/> The <i>Sceptical Chymist</i> takes the form of a dialogue, clearly modeled on Galileo's <i>Dialogo</i>, involving four participants. The Aristotelian Themistius and the Paracelsian Philoponus state their positions briefly, but soon fall silent. A wide-ranging discussion ensues between the sceptical Carneades (Boyle himself) and Eleutherius, the open-minded enquirer. Carneades argues - citing many experimental examples - that the Aristotelian four-element system and the Paracelsian three-principle model give equally inadequate explanations of what happens when complex substances are attacked by fire, or by powerful solvents. He shows that these processes often generate new compounds, rather than the promised 'primitive and simple, or perfectly unmingled bodies', which remain stubbornly elusive. His second proposal is more speculative - and theologically more dangerous. Boyle believed, and hoped to prove in time, that the ultimate constituents of bodies were minute atoms, differing only in 'bulk, figure, texture and motion'. This idea was first suggested by the ancient Greek natural philosophers Leucippus and Democritus. Their successor, Epicurus, incorporated it into a godless materialistic world-view that was universally condemned by Christian theologians. Consequently, atomistic theories were suppressed for centuries. By the mid-17th century the works of the classical Greek atomists had been printed, translated and commented upon by scholars such as Pierre Gassendi, though there was still considerable hostility to them from clergy of all persuasions. But Boyle - a devout (though somewhat unorthodox) Christian who funded translations of the Gospels into many languages, including Gaelic and Turkish - saw no reason why a benign deity could not have chosen to create an atomic universe. <br/><br/> Dibner, <i>Heralds</i> 39; Grolier/Horblit 14; Norman 299; Partington II, pp. 495-8; PMM 141; Sparrow, <i>Milestones</i> 27 (all for the first edition in English).

        Fig. Mezzotints and Screenprints by Judith Rothchild

      [Octon,France]: Verdigris Press. 2001. One of a few deluxe copies with an extra mezzotint not included in the regular edition from a total of 48 copies, on Hahnemuhle paper, each signed and numbered by the artist, Judith Rothchild. Page size:11-1/4 x 10-3/4 inches; 32pp. Bound: loose in Somerset Velvet Black paper wrappers with green silkscreens; title on front panel and on spine with author and artist's name. Hand-set in Vendand ome printed by Mark Lintott on an Albion press and a Stanhope press. Slipcase and box by Claude Vallin; with silkscreens by Judith Rothchild, fine. Judith Rothchild has chosen to illustrate D.H. Lawrence's provocative poem "Figs" with five round mezzotints and silk-screens. The first mezzotint, a fig leaf, is overprinted with the title. The other four show a whole fig and then ripe figs in various stages of bursting with six silk-screens of fig leaves and branches. A two-color silkscreen of a fig leaf (the second color is red!) faces the colophon. First published in BIRDS, BEASTS, AND FLOWERS (1923), Lawrence's poem achieved greater acclaim when it was used in Ken Russell's film "Women in Love" (1970). This sumptuous combination of text and illustration is sure to fulfill! See an Image.

        The Beauty of Chinese Yixing Teapots: And the Finer Arts of Tea Drinking

      Times Editions, Singapore 2001 - Although there have been many books written about tea, works about the importance of the teapot, essential for the best flavour, are less easily found. In this work the author gives us the results of years of experimentation with Wulong tea and Yixing teapots. The book has colour illustrations of his collection of teapots, from the humblest to the more sophisticated, with introductory and accompanying text in both English and Chinese. The real novelty of the book comes in the latter part of the book when Lim shares the results of years of tests with pots and teas to make a drink that we can savour as well. 154 pages. Since this item weighs over 1kg additional postage is likely for posting outside Malaysia [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Gypsy Moth (Carol&#39;s Story)

      North Bay, Canada:: Transformer Press,, 2001.. Edition of 10. 6.375 x 8.75"; 10 pages. Set in Humana Serif and printed on an Epson Stylus Photo RX600 printer. Canal paper (peat moss and mustard flax) made by Papeterie St-Armand. Bound in green leafy cloth with green ribbon ties at both spine and foredges so it can become a two-dimensional carousel structure. Netting covers some openings; others have insect-like bodies hanging it them. Paper title on front cover. That misfortune is often underserved and beyond our control is no surprising revelation. When the situation is compounded by supposed experts who are supposed to help, it becomes even more infuriation. This is a story of triumph over such misfortune and attendant human folly and foibles. "Gypsy Moth" is a complex story — a true story — told simply. Carol was the unwitting victim of insecticide spraying. Her health suddenly took a nosedive. Doctors were wrong, pessimistic, and dismissive. She lost her job. Nevertheless, with the help of family, friends, nature, and her own spirit, she recovered.

        [Manuscript Archive]: How Crime is Killing America: A Complete Guide to Causes and Cures

      [2001]. Computer generated manuscripts totaling more than 3400pp. Four manuscripts, representing two versions of the text for an unpublished book, plus a comb bound excerpt of the first chapter, a computer printed mock-up for a proposed but unpublished magazine cover and its accompanying editorial. All near fine with a few creases and tiny tears at the edges of some pages.The unpublished manuscript is written by Nathaniel Gilbert, a Connecticut journalist, editor, and public relations professional who has contributed articles to Entrepreneur and Public Relations News. We suspect that the book, a detailed analysis of modern American crime, was being seriously considered for publication in the spring and summer of 2001 before its publication was derailed by the September 11 terrorist attacks which shifted public interest away from domestic concerns such as crime. No surprise the author&#39;s subsequently published book Democracide considers the damage the war on terror has caused on several domestic issues, most notably crime prevention.Two manuscripts are free of annotations while the other two are covered with edits, we presume by the author but suspect some may be from an editor. Laid in are two letters from literary agents dated in the spring and summer of 2001 referencing the book. The cover mock-up and editorial appears to be an aborted magazine effort by Gilbert that segued into this book.An extensively researched but unrealized book that captured the state of crime in American at the dawn of the new millennium before the war on terror refocused our collective attention.Manuscripts:&#149; 892pp. With annotation and correction throughout, in pencil on front wrap; "Y2K Edition 164,450 Words plus Notes."&#149; 892pp. With TLS, dated May 21, 2000, from a literary agent retuning this draft and asking for the latest version.&#149; 730pp. With annotation and correction throughout. With TLS, dated July 19, 2001, from a literary agent returning this revised edition as requested by the author.&#149; 729pp. A couple scattered corrections. &#149; 37pp. Chapter one excerpt in comb bound binder.Magazine art for Crime USA&#149; Computer printed sheet tipped on board along with an overlay. The cover for the "Premier Issue" dated November 19, 1995 with a feature story on domestic violence.&#149; Framed copy of the cover in an acrylic frame. Measuring 11" x 14".&#149; Framed copy of the first editorial by Gilbert (editor/publisher) in an acrylic frames. Measuring 11" x 14". .
