         Physiologie du Mariage [2 tomes / Two Volumes]

      Levavasseur. Hardcover. Paris, 1830. 8vo, quarter morocco over marbled paper, 332 + 352 pp. First edition. The first edition of Balzac's important work, well preserved in a contemporary binding. "...an extraordinary kind of precursor to the self-help manual. Balzac was thirty when it was published, and already he felt he knew enough about the institution of marriage to advise others on the matter. And maybe he did: though he hadn't married yet, he'd already perfected the art of the aphorism. This book is full of them. 'To saunter is a science; it is the gastronomy of the eye. To take a walk is to vegetate; to saunter is to live.' 'A man ought not to marry without having studied anatomy, and dissected at least one woman.' And 'Marriage is a fight to the death, before which the wedded couple ask a blessing from heaven, because it is the rashest of all undertakings to swear eternal love; the fight at once commences and victory, that is to say liberty, remains in the hands of the cleverer of the two.'" - Paris Review. A very good set, well preserved in sound bindings, with some light foxing to contents and darkening to spines and two scuffs to one board, very good condition overall / tres bon etat. Please contact us for additional pictures or information. . Very Good. 1830. First Edition.

         Cistineae. The Natural Order of Cistus, or Rock-Rose

      James Ridgway, London 1830 - (10 3/8 x 6 3/4 inches). 112 hand-coloured engraved plates by J. Hart, M. Hart, W. Hart and Mrs. Brown. Publisher's ads in parts 1, 2, 12, 13, 23, and 25; Sweet's change of address slip in part 20. Publisher's tan wrappers. Housed in a half green morocco box. First edition in the very rare original parts of Sweet's highly decorative practical guide to the cultivation of the Rock-rose or Cistus: one of the most beautiful family of flowering plants then available. Cistus species are upright evergreen shrubs, having mostly pink or purple flowers, which resemble roses. Originally published in 28 parts, at three shillings per part, between July 1825 and January 1830, each plate shows a single variety of Cistus or Rock-rose and is accompanied by text giving a taxonomic description and instructions for the plant's cultivation. In the years following completion, the work was reissued as a single volume, however sets of the first edition in the original parts, as here, are very rare. Robert Sweet "was born in 1783 at Cockington, near Torquay, Devonshire. When sixteen years old he was placed under his half-brother, James Sweet, at that time gardener to Richard Bright of Ham Green, near Bristol, with whom he remained nine years. He subsequently had charge of the collection of plants at Woodlands, the residence of John Julius Angerstein . In 1810 Sweet entered as a partner in the Stockwell nursery, and when that was dissolved in 1815, became foreman to Messrs. Whitley, Brames, & Milne, nurserymen, of Fulham, till 1819, when he entered the service of Messrs. Colvill. While in their employ he was charged with having received a box of plants knowing them to have been stolen from the royal gardens, Kew, but was acquitted after trial at the Old Bailey on 24 Feb. 1824. In 1826 he left the Colvills, and till 1831 occupied himself almost wholly in the production of botanical works, while still cultivating a limited number of plants in his garden at [Pomona Place] Parson's Green, Fulham. In 1830 he moved to [Cook's Ground, King's Road] Chelsea, where he had a larger garden and cultivated for sale to his friends? He died on 20 Jan. 1835. He had been elected a fellow of the Linnean Society on 14 Feb. 1812. The botanical genus Sweetia was named in his honour by De Candolle in 1825" (DNB).

Costumes from the cantons and major cities plus the Black Forest.

Crack along rear joint, with possible partial repair done. Other rubbing along the edges. Plates generally clean. Original tissue guards intact.

         Album of Indian watercolours and lithographs

      1830 - 48 watercolours, 2 pen & ink drawings (measuring 130 by 210mm laid down on leaves measuring 210 by 290mm) and 18 lithographs (measuring variously 200 by 275mm, 135 by 205mm or 120 by 110mm). Nearly all captioned, dated and signed in ink. Oblong 4to album. Half red morocco over red buckram, spine elaborately gilt. Bombay and elsewhere, March 1829 - A substantial collection of expertly executed watercolours. The bulk of these are dated March 1829, and were probably completed while Ridge was on holiday. They are mostly sea and riverscapes along the west coast of India, nearly always with a boat in the foreground. Commencing with Point de Galle in Ceylon, the images include scenes of Malabar Coast, Kochi, the Hoogly River at Kolkata, Bombay (from Malabar Point, the harbour entrance), Trombay, Salsette Island, Elephanta Island, Porbandar, Vasai, and Tannah, before turning inland to Bhor Ghat and Kankroli. These are followed by the lithographs which were likely printed at Charles D'Oyly's Behar Amateur Lithographic Press, which he established in 1825 and whose most productive years were from 1828 to 1831. George Ridge (1804-1831) was born in Lambeth and entered the army as a cadet in 1821. The following year he arrived in India. He was made lieutenant in 1825 and transferred as Adjutant to the 4th Local Horse. He was made second-in-command in 1828, and was transferred again to the 9th Light Cavalry. Finally, he was promoted to captain in 1830 and died shortly thereafter in Neemuch. He was quite prolific in this time and numerous examples of his work are at the British Library as well as the National Army Museum.

         LETTERS ON DEMONOLOGY AND WITCHCRAFT, ADDRESSED TO J. G. LOCKHART, ESQ

      London: John Murray, 1830. FIRST EDITION. One of Scott's final works, this series of letters on the occult topics that had long fascinated him is offered here with the (more amusing than eerie) colored plates by George Cruikshank (1792-1878) that were printed and sold separately. Drawing on such classics as Reginald Scot's "Discoverie of Witchcraft," the eminent novelist examines ancient oracles, fairy superstitions, the practices and persecution of witches, and communication with the spirit world. Our copy contains the animated illustrations of Cruikshank, a self-educated artist who illustrated more than 850 books, with depictions of fairy hijinks, witchy frolics, and elfin mischief designed to elicit amusement rather than fear. These were not commissioned by Scott (who might have resented their lighthearted take on a topic that was serious to him), but were published by Cruikshank two months after the book appeared; they are not included in most copies. The present volume has the added benefit of an attractive binding by an eminent British workshop.. 148 x 94 mm. (5 3/4 x 3 3/4"). ix, 402 pp. FIRST EDITION. Very pleasing scarlet morocco, gilt, by Bayntun of Bath (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with frame formed by multiple plain and dotted rules, calligraphic ornaments at corners, raised bands, spine compartments framed by plain and dotted rules, gilt titling, gilt ruled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt.

         Woman's Love; The Phrenologists; The Jew of Arragon

      Smith Elder and Co; J. Onwhyn; Smith, Elder and Co, London 1830 - Second edition of the first title, first editions of the second and third titles. 8vo. Presentation copies. The author's entire dramatic output. "Throughout his career, whether in his poetry, his dramatic productions, or his journalistic work, Wade's writing is fired by a reformist zeal and progressive temper, an energy which was inspired by Shelley, who to the last remained Wade's ideal." -- Oxford DNB. Included here are the following: (a) [Wade, Thomas.] Woman's love; or, the triumph of patience. A drama, in five acts. First performed at the Theatre Royal, Covent Garden, on Wednesday, December 17th, 1828. Second edition. London: Smith, Elder and Co., 1829. (b) Wade, Thomas. The phrenologists: a farce, in two acts. By Thomas Wade, author of "Woman's Love," a drama; &c. First performed at the Theatre Royal, Covent Garden, on Tuesday, January 12th, 1830. London: sold by J. Onwhyn; and may be had of all booksellers, 1830. (c) Wade, Thomas. The Jew of Arragon; or, the Hebrew queen. A tragedy, in five acts. By Thomas Wade, author of "Duke Andrea; or, Woman's Love", a drama. Performed at the Theatre Royal, Covent Garden, on Wednesday, October 20th, 1830. London: Smith, Elder and Co., 1830. Each play is inscribed by Wade on the title-page, "Serle, Esqr. -- with the author's complts." The recipient was no doubt the dramatist, novelist and theater manager Thomas James Serle (1798-1889), who himself published half a dozen plays in the 1830s. This volume has the bookplate of Harry Buxton Forman, with his characteristic initials on a front flyleaf. Buxton Forman has listed the three titles, and added, "All good copies with author's autograph." Buxton Forman -- and because of him T. J. Wise as well -- was a great enthusiast of Wade. In 1895 he gathered together a number of Wade's scattered poems from manuscripts and journals, and published them with a long tribute as "Wade: The Poet and His Surroundings," in Vol. I of his Literary Anecdotes of the Nineteenth Century. Forman's praise was unstinting: "With the sole exception of Thomas Lovell Beddoes, no nineteenth-century English poet whose merit equals that of Thomas Wade has been so liberally neglected." Buxton Forman was not quite so enthusiastic about the literary quality of The Phrenologists, but he did recognize its scarcity: "If the little book were as excellent as it is rare, it would indeed be a treasure. So hard is it to find that Wade's widow was unable to say if it had ever been published or not" Provenance: Buxton Forman (bookplate) Slightly later cloth, spine titled in gilt Second edition of the first title, first editions of the second and third titles.

         ALS to Joseph Davies, from 49 Bedford Square, 8 Feb., 1830. ?I regret that you should imagine the absence of my reply to arise from a want of interest in the subject of your letter.?

      1830 1830 - 48 lines in a difficult hand, on 3 sides of folded 4to sheet with integral address leaf; sl. loss caused by seal, old folds, edge mounted onto larger 4to sheet. A long and engaging letter from Robert Owen to a fellow educationalist, Joseph Davies of Liverpool. Owen, 1771-1858, a successful mill owner, had spent his life trying to encourage social, educational and political reform for working communities, culminating in the utopian social experiments at New Lanark in Scotland and New Harmony in America. In 1830, after his involvement in both communities had ended, Owen continued to campaign for the education and improvement of working people. This correspondence with Davies, of whom little is known, is in response to a letter from Davies evidently setting out his philosophy on education. ?[Your letter] I perused with such attention for your ideas for the education of infants accord in all respects with my own.? Owen, although clearly impressed with Davies? philosophy, refuses to back him financially: ?It is not in my power to assist you in money matters for alas my powers are involved in this measure which I have put in practice to relieve the population form the distress which overwhelms it & I won?t prepare you to expect some difficulty in affecting satisfactory pecuniary arrangements. I have always found many obstacles opposed when money was to be abused for a future object? He signs off with a warm flourish wishing the recipient well with the success of their shared objectives: ?Time will not permit me to send more than my sincere wishes that you may attain the future accomplishments of your object which is so necessary to the formation of a superior character of the human race?

         LETTERS ON DEMONOLOGY AND WITCHCRAFT, ADDRESSED TO J G LOCKHART, ESQ

      London: John Murray, 1830. FIRST EDITION. One of Scott's final works, this series of letters on the occult topics that had long fascinated him is offered here with the (more amusing than eerie) colored plates by George Cruikshank (1792-1878) that were printed and sold separately. Drawing on such classics as Reginald Scot's "Discoverie of Witchcraft," the eminent novelist examines ancient oracles, fairy superstitions, the practices and persecution of witches, and communication with the spirit world. Our copy contains the animated illustrations of Cruikshank, a self-educated artist who illustrated more than 850 books, with depictions of fairy hijinks, witchy frolics, and elfin mischief designed to elicit amusement rather than fear. These were not commissioned by Scott (who might have resented their lighthearted take on a topic that was serious to him), but were published by Cruikshank two months after the book appeared; they are not included in most copies. The present volume has the added benefit of an attractive binding by an eminent British workshop.. 148 x 94 mm. (5 3/4 x 3 3/4"). ix, 402 pp. FIRST EDITION. Very pleasing scarlet morocco, gilt, by Bayntun of Bath (stamp-signed on front turn-in), covers with frame formed by multiple plain and dotted rules, calligraphic ornaments at corners, raised bands, spine compartments framed by plain and dotted rules, gilt titling, gilt ruled turn-ins, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With engraved frontispiece of Bow House, Edinburgh, and EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED WITH 12 HAND-COLORED PLATES BY CRUIKSHANK, sold separately. Todd & Bowden 241Aa. Just a hint of offsetting from some of the plates, other trifling imperfections internally, but AN EXTREMELY FINE AND VERY PRETTY COPY, with virtually no signs of use to the clean, fresh text and the lustrous decorative binding.

         On the phenomena and laws of elliptic polarization, as exhibited in the action of metals upon light.

      In: The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society ... London:: Printed by Richard Taylor, 1830., 1830. 279 x 225 mm. 4to. Vol. 120. Part two: vi, (223)-434, [8], 14 pp. (Brewster's article appears on pages 287-326). Numerous tables, 3 figs.; some offsetting associated with plates at the rear of the volume, some track-marks on series title. Original blue wrapper, untrimmed, blue kozo spine; top cover chipped. Very good. FIRST EDITION. This paper contains Brewster's second major contribution: the laws of metallic reflection. "The most striking properties of metals are the power of brilliantly reflecting light at all angles of incidence, which is so well shown by the mirrors of reflecting telescopes, and the opacity, which causes a train of waves to be extinguished before it has proceeded many wave-lengths into a metallic medium. That these two attributes are connected appears probable from the fact that certain non-metallic bodies - e.g. aniline dyes - which strongly absorb the rays in certain parts of the spectrum, reflect those rays with almost metallic brilliance. A third quality in which metals differ from transparent bodies, and which, as we shall see, is again closely related to the other two, is in regard to the polarisation of the light reflected from them. This was first noticed by Malus; and in 1830 Sir David Brewster showed that plane-polarised light incident on a metallic surface remains polarised in the same plane after reflection if its polarisation is either parallel or perpendicular to the plane of reflection, but that in other cases the reflected light is polarised elliptically. It was this discovery of Brewster's which suggested to the mathematicians a theory of metallic reflection." Whittaker.

         Presentation copy to Sir James Paget, inscribed by the author: Reflections on the Decline of Science in England.

      Printed for B. Fellowes and J. Booth, London 1830 - 8vo (215 x 135 mm). 228, [4] pp. including half-title and 4pp. publisher's list of works at end. Contemporary russia, gilt-decorated boards, spine rebacked (some wear to extremities), all edges gilt. Light soiling to title, but generally quite clean and fresh. Provenance: presentation copy from the author to James Paget* inscribed on front free endpaper. ---- Norman 90; Honeyman 169. FIRST EDITION of Babbage's polemic on the state of science in England, aimed mainly at the Royal Society. He also criticised the government in its lack of support in developing science and proposed reforms for scientific education. The decline of English science in the eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries had long been a byword among the country's more progressive scientists, who deplored England's failure to recognize the importance of scientific achievement even in the face of her increasing industrial and technological power, and who viewed with alarm the widening gap between English and Continental scientific progress. Indeed, this issue had been the primary motivating force behind the formation of the Analytical Society of which Babbage was a founding member: "Reform of science had been the credo of the militant young liberals of the Analytical Society from its early boisterous meetings. Their first objective, the introduction of the Continental notation in calculus, was effectively secured by the early 1820s. The work of Babbage, Herschel and others was beginning to restore the reputation of English mathematics, and foundations were being laid for the English school of De Morgan and Boole. But the young Analyticals had far more ambitions targets in view" (Hyman, Charles Babbage [1982], p.88). Two versions of the Decline were published: the more usual "octavo" (as here) or small-paper edition, containing 228 pages; and a large-paper "quarto" edition of only 120 pages (Van Sinderen 1980, no. 39. OOC 38). According to a note tipped into the Honeyman copy of the quarto edition, only 'a few [copies were] printed in Quarto, for the use of those Gentlemen who may wish to bind up the Work with the Philosophical Transactions for the Year 1830', a nicely satirical touch in a work that was primarily a diatribe against the Royal Society The order of the editions has not been established. Normal practice was to print large-paper-copies after the smaller edition, although in this case the two could have been published simultaneously. *Sir James Paget (1814-99), surgeon and pathologist. Paget became a student at St. Bartholomew's Hospital in London 1834 at the age of 16, and in his first year there he showed his promise by discovering in human muscle the parasitic worm that causes trichinosis (the same year in which Charles Babbage began the conceptual design of his "analytical engine"). He became eligible to practice in 1836 and went on to become a distinguished physiologist and one of the fathers of modern pathology. In 1858 he was appointed surgeon extraordinary to Queen Victoria, and in 1863 surgeon in ordinary to Albert Edward, Prince of Wales, being knighted in 1871. Paget certainly knew Babbage and although he presumably met him a few years after this work was published the inscription is undated and could conceivably be almost contemporaneous. - Visit our website for additional images and information.
