         Transactions of the Horticultural Society of London, 1805 - 1828. Complete First Series. In Seven Finely Bound Volumes by Hering, London

      Printed for the Society by William Savage, Bedford Bury, and Sold by J. Hatchard, Piccadilly, and B. White, Fleet Street, London, 1807-30. First Edition. Hardcover (Full Leather). Very Good Condition. Founded in London in 1804, the Horticultural Society of London which in time became the Royal Horticultural Society (1861), by John Wedgwood, the son of Josiah Wedgwood, and Sir Joseph Banks, the aim was to allow regular meetings where members could present papers on their horticultural activities and discoveries. The Transactions, the society's journal of record, contains works by T.A.Knight, George Lindlay, James Barnet, Robert Thompson and many other writers upon subjects as diverse as fruit and vegetable cultivation, greenhouse design, plant propagation, and illustrated throughout with many plain engravings (the colour plates are not present here). All seven volumes finely bound by Hering, 9 Newman Street, London, with his ticket on an inside front free endpaper in the first volume. Green coloured straight grained morocco, with the spine in gilt compartments, and gilt lettered titles. Boards with four rules in gilt, with corner pieces of gilt acorns. Edges of boards with twin straight rules. Inner edges with three straight rules. Sewn silk bookmarks. All edges gilt. Some minor imperfections in the form of slight rubbing at extremities generally. All joints inside and outside very sound, with no cracking or loose boards. A couple of pages loose or pulled. Engraved title pages are spotted and there is some foxing to the contents here and there, but nothing alarming or detracting from the overall beauty of the set. In total, over 3500 pages of papers reported by Society members, with 62 plates present. The bookplate of John Charles Pratt, the Earl of Brecknock and (2nd) Marquess of Camden is present to front pastedown of the first six volumes.

The crest features a Griffin Sable and a Lion Rampant to either side of the detailed crest. As the 'Directions to the Binder' remark in volume 1 'The coloured Plates of this work being finished in a style of superior excellence, the Members of the Horticultural Society, and Purchasers, are recommended not to bind them up, but keep them for reference in a portfolio'. It is therefore not particularly unusual for the coloured plates not to be present, as is the case in this set.

         Voyage de découvertes aux terres Australes. Exécuté par ordre de sa Majesté l'Empereur et Roi, sur les corvettes le Géographe, le Naturaliste, et la goélette le Casuarina, pendant les années 1800, 1801, 1802, 1803 et 1804.

      Rare set of the regular account of the Baudin expedition to the Terres Australes, the text volumes in publisher's wrappers, with the plates presented in both coloured and uncoloured states. One of the most important and famous descriptions of Australia ever published, it also contains the first published complete and fully detailed map of Australia, Freycinet's Carte générale de la Nouvelle Hollande, along with many significant charts of the southern Australian coastline ("Terre Napoléon"), superb ethnographical and natural history plates by Nicolas-Martin Petit, and a magnificent topographical view of Sydney by Charles Alexandre Lesueur.  Paris : De L'Imprimerie Impériale, 1807 - 1816 - 1807 - 1811.  Four volumes, quarto (in two sizes) of the Partie Historique of the Baudin expedition, complete in itself (the Partie Navigation et Geographie was published separately). The two quarto volumes that comprise the narrative text are in the publisher's original pink paper wrappers with paper labels to spines (slightly faded) and the two small folio volumes that comprise the historical atlas (Historique Atlas) are bound in uniform modern papered boards (joints slightly cracked); housed in two fine quarter-morocco clamshell boxes, the spines in compartments. Historique (text). Part 1, 1807. Quarto, pp [iv half-title; title], xv, 496, [v errata; contents]; Part 2, 1816. Quarto, pp xxxii, 471, frontispiece portrait of Péron by Lambert after Lesueur engraved by Langlois; two folding tables; slight water stain to the margins of last few leaves. Historique Atlas. Part 1, 1807. Small folio, pp [ii], 40 plates (two folding, 23 coloured and also present duplicated in uncoloured state); Part 2, 1811. Small folio, pp [3], 14 charts (two double-page, including the first complete map of Australia). A fine and desirable set of the complete regular publication of the Baudin expedition; the natural history, topographical and ethnographic plates present in both coloured and uncoloured states, and the text volumes in crisp publisher's wrappers. Ferguson, 449; Wantrup, 79a. Baudin's two ships, the Géographe and the Naturaliste, left Le Havre on 19 October 1800. Having sailed for New Holland from Mauritius early in 1801, the expedition sighted Cape Leeuwin on the southwest coast of Australia on 27 May 1801. After exploring Rottnest Island and the Swan River the two ships became separated, but both continued north along the coast independently, eventually arriving in Timor in August and September. In November 1801 the Géographe and the Naturaliste sailed south once more for Cape Leeuwin, and from there Baudin headed to Tasmania and charted much of the east coast of the island. The Naturaliste, under Hamelin, then crossed Bass Strait and surveyed Western Port, before continuing north to Port Jackson. Baudin's ship, the Géographe, proceeded to chart the part of the southern coastline of the Australian continent known as Terre Napoleon, famously meeting Matthew Flinders at Encounter Bay in April 1802. Baudin then returned to Port Jackson by way of the southern coast of Tasmania. From Sydney, Hamelin returned to France with the Naturaliste, while Baudin, in the Géographe, in company with a newly acquired small vessel, the Casuarina, under the command of Louis de Freycinet, continued the expedition's hydrographic work. Baudin and Freycinet surveyed and charted King Island, Kangaroo Island, the Gulf of St. Vincent, and King George's Sound, before travelling north along the Western Australian coast and  eventually arriving at Timor early in May 1803. After again visiting the northwest coast of Australia they commenced the homeward voyage for France. Baudin, however, died en route at Mauritius, and the expedition, under the command of Milius, finally arrived at Le Havre in the Géographe in late March 1804.

         La Flore d'Oware et de Benin, en Afrique.

      A Paris, de l'Imprimerie de Fain Jeune et Compagnie, 1804 - 1807. - 2 tomes en 1 volume grand in-folio. XII. (i.e. X). 99pp. 60 planches hors-texte en couleurs. + 95pp. 60 planches hors-texte en couleurs. Demi-maroquin vert à grain long et à coins (reliure moderne dans le style de l'époque). Edition Originale de ce magnifique ouvrage illustré qui constitue la première étude botanique du Bénin. Ambroise Marie François Joseph, baron de Palisot de Beauvois, était un botaniste français né à Arras en 1752. Ancien mousquetaire, il s'était rendu dès 1786 en Afrique noire où il fut le premier à explorer comme naturaliste les contrées d'Oware et du Bénin. Sa vie fut émaillée de péripéties et de désastres qui lui firent perdre à plusieurs reprises les collections d'histoire naturelle qu'il avait constituées, et la Révolution Française le força notamment à s'exiler plusieurs années aux Etats-Unis où il réalisa de nouvelles observations d'histoire naturelle. Autorisé à rentrer en France en 1798, il fut élu membre de l'Institut et put reprendre ses travaux avant de mourir à Paris en 1820. "Palisot de Beauvois studied botany with de Jussieu before going to Benin, where from 1784 to 1788 he was part of a group sent to establish a French trading post; this is where he did the botanization reflected in the present work. Following that, he went to Saint Domigue (Haiti) where he stayed until being sent to Philadelphia in 1791 to raise funds to suppress the Negro uprisings in Haiti. He returned to Haiti in 1793, only to be. imprisoned and expelled. He returned to Philadelphia where he worked as a street musician until Caspar Wistar, the Quaker physician, employed him to arrange the natural history cabinet of the painter Charles W. Peale. Palisot de Beauvois was finally permitted to return to France in 1798, where he found that all his properties had been confiscated during the Revolution'' (Cleveland Herbal). L'ouvrage est illustré de 120 planches gravées d'après les dessins de Prêtre et de Mirbel, imprimées en couleur par Langlois et rehaussées à la main. Il parut sous forme de livraisons périodiques sur une durée de plus de quinze ans, les derniers cahiers n'ayant été livrés qu'en 1818, voire même 1821 (cf. Pritzel). L'ouvrage ne fut tiré qu'à 200 exemplaires, dont une grande partie ne subsiste aujourd'hui que sous la forme de fascicules incomplets. Quelques rousseurs et brunissures éparses. Très bon exemplaire, non rogné et soigneusement relié dans le goût du temps. Pritzel, 6896: "Rarum idque pulcherrimum opus prodiit 20 fasciculis usque ad annum 1818 vel 1821". Nissen, Die Botanische Buchillustration, 1481. Cleveland Herbal, 683. Great Flower Books, p. 70. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         THE PICTURE OF NEW-YORK; OR THE TRAVELLER'S GUIDE THROUGH THE COMMERCIAL METROPOLIS OF THE UNITED STATES

      New York: I. Riley, 1807. FIRST EDITION. This is the first traveller's guide to New York City, complete with the rarely seen map of Lower Manhattan by cartographer William Bridges showing the Lower East Side with the proposed landfill expansion. Written by "A Gentleman Residing in the City," the book offers a brief description of the topography of the area and the history of the settlement, followed by demographic information, lists of banks, insurance companies, commercial and charitable institutions, markets, literary establishments, and public amusements, as well as a guide to city regulations, the courts, and matters concerning public health. The map is a pirated version of the 1803 Mangin-Goerck plan, which proposed a landfill to extend the coastline of the Lower East Side. Bridges re-engraved the map with little regard for accuracy: due to lack of care in designating the water line, some of the streets pictured are still part of the East River. Restored copies of this map can sell for more than $5,000, so the price here is especially advantageous.. 160 x 100 mm. (6 1/4 x 4"). viii, 223 pp. FIRST EDITION. Period-style half calf over older (original?) marbled paper boards and leather spine, flat spine with rectangular cut-out revealing the original (worn) gilt titling on the spine beneath, renewed endpapers. WITH THE SCARCE FOLDING MAP engraved by Peter Maverick attached to rear board. Choen et al., "Manhattan in Maps 1527-2014," p. 82. Paper boards a bit chafed, title page a little soiled, intermittent minor to moderate foxing, map a bit browned, with splits along most of the folds (map edges and three of the folds neatly reinforced with archival tape on verso), but the copy otherwise very good, with the map complete, the text clean and fresh, and the nicely restored binding with few signs of wear.

         A short inquiry into the policy, humanity and past effects of the poor laws; and into the principles upon which any measures for their improvement should be conducted; in which are included a few considerations on the questions of political oeconomy, most intimately connected with the subject; particularly on the supply of food in England.

      London: printed for J. Hatchard; Mess. F.C. and J. Rivington; and J. Asperne. 1807. 8vo., xlii + (2) + 382pp., including the half-title and errata leaf, old tear in one text leaf (but no loss of surface), well bound fairly recently in cloth-backed marbled boards, black spine label gilt lettered, entirely uncut. A very good copy indeed. First edition. John Weyland (1774-1854), known to biographical history simply as a 'writer on the poor laws', was actually a J.P. for four southern counties, a member of the Board of Agriculture and a Fellow of the Royal Society. The present so-called 'short inquiry>' is in fact a substantial treatise on the poor laws largely from a rural perspective (Weyland suggests that it complements Colquhoun's parallel Treatise on Indigence> which largely examined the state of the urban poor). Williams (loc. cit.) succinctly observes that Weyland's is a 'lengthy argument in defence of the poor laws, as an encouragement to population'. As M.C. Curthoys puts it in ODNB, 'Weyland is now remembered as a critic of Malthusian population theory. He was concerned to uphold the existing social order in the countryside, and was an outspoken defender of the existing system of poor relief.'

         Observations upon the windward coast of Africa, the religion, character, customs, &c. of the natives; with a system upon which they may be civilized, and a knowledge attained of the interior of this extraordinary quarter of the globe; and upon the natural and commercial resources of the country: made in the years 1805 and 1806. With an appendix, containing a letter to Lord Howick, on the most simple and effectual means of abolishing the Slave Trade.

      London Nicol 1807 - First edition. 4to., xiv, [ii], 164pp., half-title, engraved map, 8 handcoloured aquatint plates (7 double-page or folding), light toning to text, occasional light foxing, later half calf, marbled boards, red morocco label, upper joint repaired, a very good copy. Scarce. "An early eyewitness description of the territories of the western coast of Africa promoting greater European activity in the area." (Bianchi). Illustrated with fine hand-coloured plates. "Observations is an unusually finely illustrated account of travels to West Africa in the early years of the 19th century. Joseph Corry, in addition to advancing Britain's commercial prospects, was interested in ending the practice of slavery. To this end, the text includes the author's letter to Lord Howick on abolishing the slave trade. The author hoped that "if in the most remote degree, I excite the interference of my countrymen in behalf of the African, extend our commerce, and enlarge the circle of civilized and Christian society, I shall think that I have neither travelled, nor written in vain." In February 1807 William Wilberforce's Abolition Bill was passed by the House of Commons, making participation in the slave trade illegal for British subjects."
