        [SWAN RIVER COLONY] The Journal of the Royal Geographical Society of London. Volume the first. 1831. Second edition.

      London : John Murray, Albemarle Street, 1833. Octavo, rebound in twentieth century green cloth boards with gilt lettered spine, original printed brown wrappers bound in (some creasing and stains), pp xi, 264, with 8 engraved maps and plates (some folding) at rear, including the folding map Western Australia from the latest Documents received in the Colonial Office, 1832, engraved by J. and C. Walker (short tear at gutter, stained at edges and lightly foxed), followed by 16 pages of publisher's advertisements; text pages with occasional spotting, most pages uncut; maps and plates and original lower wrapper with water stain at top edges. The second printing of the first volume of the RGS's esteemed Journal, which contains several important papers read to the Society relating to the Swan River Colony in Western Australia, only recently established in 1829. The papers include an extract from Stirling's Report entitled State of the Colony of Swan River, 1st January, 1830, read by John Barrow (1-16); General View of the Botany of the Vicinity of Swan River, by Richard Brown (17-21); and Description of the Natives of King George's Sound (Swan River Colony) and adjoining country, written by Mr. Scott Nind, and communicated by Richard Brown (33-51), which includes a very early Noongar (Nyungar) vocabulary (47-51). The folding map, which is based on the explorations of Ensign Dale, Captain Bannister, Lieutenant Preston, and Captains Collie and Currie, shows all of these explorers' tracks, annotated with sightings. The map is one of the earliest that relate to the Swan River Colony (obviously, with its date of 1832, it was not contained in the first printing of the Journal for 1831; but it was published in the Journal for 1832, as well as this second printing of the first volume).

        Blick von Schlierbach auf den Neckar und Stift Neuburg, 1833.

      - Bleistift, auf chamoisfarbenem Velin. 31,5:47,6 cm. – Mit kleiner dünner Papierstelle im Bereich des Berghanges. Mit Nachlaßnummer verso „579", Lehmann, S. 203. Auf der Nachlaßauktion wurde die Zeichnung – wie taxiert – für 1 Florin verkauft. Vgl. Wechssler WV 575-580, Farbtafel 48 und Abb. Ss. 310-312 (1828) einerseits und Wechssler WV 686, 689, 690, Farbtafel 68, Abb. S. 346 und 348 (1833) andererseits. In der Regel geht der Blick flußaufwärts über den Neckar auf Stift Neuburg links im Bild. Die vorliegende Zeichnung hingegen wählt den Standort mit Schlierbach links im Vordergrund und Stift Neuburg auf der anderen Flußseite. Die Arbeiten von 1829 im kleinen Format 15:20 cm waren für die Druckgraphik vorgesehen. Bereits im Winter 1829/30 ist von Fries eine Folge von „Sechs lithographierte Ansichten von Stift Neuburg bei Heidelberg", in Heidelberg im Verlag L. Meder erschienen (Wechssler WV 775-780). Erst die Arbeiten von 1833 weisen das größere Format aus, weshalb wir die vorliegende Zeichnung auf 1833 datiert haben.

        THE SAVAGE. By Piomingo, a Headman and Warrior of the Muscogulgee Nation.

      Knoxville: Republished at the "Scrap Book" Office, 1833. - 324pp. Original sheep. Spine chipped and worn, hinges cracked, front board nearly detached, foxing throughout. Withal in decent condition. In a cloth case, leather label. Robinson's essays are written in the guise of the thoughts and debates of a Creek sage named Piomingo. Much of the text consists of arguments between whites and Piomingo over differing philosophies, making this a fascinating view of the Noble Savage and a satire on contemporary mores. First published in Philadelphia in 1810, it was evidently popular enough to go through several editions, of which this frontier-ish printing in Knoxville, at the time of Indian removal, is both exotic and notable.

During the patient's recovery, through a permanent fistula, Beaumont was able to observe the process of digestion. ".Beaumont was the first to study digestion and the movements of the stomach in vivo. His work on the subject was the most important before Pavlov." - Garrison-Morton 989; Dibner, Heralds of Science 130; Fulton, pp. 186-190; Horblit 10; Lilly, p. 185; Wellcome 2:123; Waller 805; Norman Library 152; Norman, One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine, 61.

        American Ornithology; or, the Natural History of Birds inhabiting the United States, not given by Wilson

      Philadelphia: Samuel Augustus Mitchell [vol I]; Carey, Lea & Carey [vols II & III]; Carey & Lea [vol IV], 1833. Four volumes, small folio (15 x 12 inches [vols. 2 and 4] and 14 1/2 x 11 1/4 inches [vols. 1 and 3]. 27 hand-colored engraved plates by Alexander Lawson (11 after Titian R. Peale, 15 after A. Rider, and 1 after J.J. Audubon and A. Rider). Foxing to the text, particularly in vols. 3 and 4, though the plates clean throughout. Vols. 2 and 4 uncut. Publisher's half red morocco and marbled paper covered boardsFirst edition, first issue of this important American ornithological work, with the plates beautifully hand colored.Bonaparte's important continuation of Wilson's American Ornithology describes 60 birds not in the original work."A love for the same department of natural science, and a desire to complete the vast enterprise so far advanced by Wilson's labors, has induced us to undertake the present work," Bonaparte writes in the preface, "in order to illustrate what premature death prevented him from accomplishing, as well as the discoveries subsequently made in the feathered tribes of these States.""The work which had been performed by Wilson's hands alone now gave employment to several individuals. Titian R., the fourth son of Charles Wilson Peale, not only collected many of the birds figured while on the Long expedition, which were credited to Thomas Say, who originally described them in footnotes scattered through the report; or in a subsequent private trip to Florida during the winter and spring of 1825, under the patronage of Bonaparte; but also drew the figures engraved for the first, and two plates for the fourth and last volume. A German emigrant by the name of Alexander Rider, of whom little is known beyond that he was a miniature painter in 1813, and a portrait and historical painter in 1818, was responsible for the remainder of the drawings with the exception of the two figures of plate 4 of volume I..." (Frank L. Burns, On Alexander Wilson ).That plate, the Great Crow Blackbird, is notable as being the first book appearance of any engraving after John James Audubon. Perhaps the most influential artist involved with the work, however, was Bonaparte's master engraver Alexander Lawson, arguably the most talented ornithological engraver in America at that time.Three issues of the first edition of Wilson's continuation have been identified. This set is comprised of the rare first issue of vol. 1 (with the Mitchell imprint and containing the first issue of plate 6 in that volume (see Ellis/Mengel) and with first issues of volumes two through four (published by Carey & Lea and printed by William Brown). Carey & Lea later reissued the first volume, with their own imprint, after purchasing the rights to the publication from Mitchell in 1828. The third issue includes volumes reprinted by T.K. and P.G. Collins (with their imprint replacing that of William Brown) for Carey & Lea with unchanged dates on the titles but actually printed in about 1835 after the completion of the final volume.Anker 47; Bennett 16; Coues 1:609; Ellis/Mengel 312a-b; Fine Bird Books(1990) p. 78; Nissen IVB 116; Sabin 6264; Wood 247; Zimmer p.64.

        Edouard Corbière réclame les épreuves de son nouveau roman, le Prisonnier de guerre.

      - 1 lettre autographe signée 3 In-4 28/11/1833 En-tête du Journal du Havre. Adresses et marques postales au dos. déchirure à l'ouverture de la lettre, bords un peu effrangés. Intéressante lettre d'Edouard Corbière à son imprimeur, au sujet de la publication de son nouveau roman maritime, Le Prisonnier de guerre. Il n'a reçu que 25 pages d'épreuves un mois plus tôt, qu'il a aussitôt renvoyées, mais depuis, plus rien ; il demande des explications car "c'est un ouvrage auquel je tiens par des considérations que vous êtes à même d'apprécier et d'excuser". "Le Prisonnier de Guerre dont je suis l'auteur et jusqu'ici encore du moins le propriétaire, devait paraître le 15 décembre : cette époque qui convenait à la vente de l'ouvrage, a été dépassée quoique j'eusse envoyé tout le manuscrit bien avant ce terme. Maintenant, je voudrais savoir, et ceci en confidence, quelle peut être la cause du retard qu'a éprouvé l'impression du volume. Comme j'ai tout lieu de craindre que cette cause ne dépende de Mr Magen lui-même [l'éditeur de l'ouvrage], je voudrais être fixé du moins sur ce motif qui m'intéresse surtout comme auteur [.]". Il rouvre sa lettre pour rajouter un post scriptum car il vient de recevoir les épreuves tant désirées, jusqu'à la page 42. "J'ai remarqué qu'à la page 40, ligne 21, on a omis une phrase qui doit se trouver sur la copie : voici au reste la phrase à rétablir, soit qu'elle ait été oubliée sur le manuscrit par le copiste, ou dans l'épreuve par le compositeur : Un de nos amis, entraîné par cette agréable illusion, voulut compléter l'erreur, et il se mit à nous raconter un conte de faux-pont, comme au bon temps de notre vie d'aspirant [.]". Il donne encore des instructions pour les épreuves suivantes. [Le Prisonnier de Guerre parut l'année suivante, en 1834]. Marin, journaliste et écrivain, il est considéré comme le père du roman maritime en France. Il est le père de Tristan Corbière. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Very Good, in later library cloth with gilt-lettered morocco spine labels [labels partly chipped]. This is the second and final compilation of the Territorial Laws of Arkansas [statehood occurred in 1836], after the 1821 printing. This compilation prints the U.S. Constitution with twelve Amendments; the Treaty of Cession with Louisiana; the Acts providing for the government of the Missouri Territory, of which Arkansas was originally a part; the Act establishing the Arkansas Territory as "a separate Territorial Government for the Southern part of the Territory of Missouri"; and, alphabetically by subject, the Laws of Arkansas Territory. "Horse and Negro Stealing" were serious crimes, punishable by death. A detailed Slave Code is printed, restricting travel, regulating meetings, punishing by death conspiracies to rebel, establishing slave patrols, but permitting free Negroes to keep a firearm.

Very Good plus, in later buckram [title and institutional stamp on spine]. These are the State's first revised statutes, organized alphabetically by subject and providing a window on the activities and concerns of this new Frontier State. Arkansas entered the Union in 1836. Pike asserts, "In no State was ever such a revision more imperatively called for, more needful for the common weal." The laws had been "an unseemly and incongruous superstructure," with "crude and incongruous laws, hatched in prolific brains." A Code for "Negroes and Mulattoes" is included, with a definition of the latter term. As in a number of other States, "No free negro or mulatto shall hereafter be permitted to emigrate to or settle in this State" without posting a bond for his support and good behavior. The detailed Index consumes about 150 pages. The Laws are preceded by the U.S. and Arkansas Constitutions, the Treaty of Cession of Louisiana, the Act of Admission of Arkansas, the supplementing Compact and its acceptance, and Pike's Preface.I Harv.

      [Various places, including Antwerp, London, Havana, Pensacola, and New York, 1833. Twenty-one leaves, plus two additional manuscript leaves laid in. Folio. Contemporary half calf and marbled boards, manuscript label on front board. Hinges cracked, boards somewhat soiled, spine and lower corner of rear board chipped. Bookseller's label on front pastedown. Very good. An interesting manuscript ship's log containing financial accounts for the brigs Nimrod and Jasper for an eight year period from 1826 to 1833, while they were under the command of a Capt. John Hill. The two ships made numerous voyages between the United States, Europe, and the Caribbean. The present log book contains accounting of expenditures for journeys from London and Marseille to New York and Norfolk in 1827; from Antwerp to London in 1828; from Philadelphia to the West Indies in 1829; from Madeira to the Turks Islands in 1831; from the West Indies to Pensacola to Havana in 1832; from the Indies to New York in 1833; and several other similar voyages. The log also contains two copies of an 1832 letter written in Havana by Hill to merchants there inquiring about the price of molasses, and a list of port charges at several major way points. A fascinating artifact of trans-Atlantic trade in the 1820s and 1830s.

        Address Delivered Before the General Trades' Union of the City of New-York at the Chatham-street Chapel, Monday, December 2, 1833

      Printed by Order of the Convention [by] James Ormond [1833], New-York - Scarce address delivered shortly after the founding of the General Trades' Union, by Moore, in August of the same year. The GTU is considered to be the first large trade union, headed by the delegates of nine craft trades. Moore, elected its first president, would go on to be a U.S. Representative from New York, from 1835 to 1839 and later, in 1845, president of the National Trade Union. The present document is possibly the first publication issued by the Union, the opening statement explinaing that "We have assembled on the present occasion, for the purpose of publicly proclaiming the motives which induced us to organize a General Union of the various trades and arts in this city and its victinity" (p. [7]): "We, in order to guard against the encroachments of aristocracy, to preserve our natural and political rights, to elevate our moral and intellectual condition, to promote our pecuniary interests, to narrow the line of distinction between the journeyman and employer.have deemed it expedient to form ourselves into a 'General Trades' Union'" (p. 10). Octavo (20.5cm.); disbound; 32pp. Textblock rather foxed and a bit dust-soiled, stitching somewhat loose but still holding, dampstaining along gutter, slightly later (1845) repeated ownership signature of a Robert Garlington of South Carolina College to title page with his notes on verso and p. [3]. Additional signature on p. [3] of E.A. Garlington (1853-1934), a United States General who served during the Indian Wars. Good or better. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The Works of Lord Byron: With His Letters and Journals and His Life, by Thomas Moore, Esq. (Byron's Works)

      John Murray, London 1833 - Complete works of Lord Byron. Small octavo, 17 volumes. Bound in half morocco, elaborate tooling in gilt to the spine. Engraved frontispiece and tile-page in each volume by Finden. In excellent condition showing only light wear. A very attractive set. "Byron is to a far greater degree than the other romanticists the poet of humankind. He conveys with tremendous power the majesty and desolation of history, the vanity of pomp and pride, the transitoriness of fame. And he is the poet of contemporary society, keen to discern the false and the corrupt, courageous in denunciation yet with pity for the young and innocent. As a poet he mirrored brilliantly and without distortion an absorbingly interesting world" (Baugh, 1229). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

This is the second and final compilation of the Territorial Laws of Arkansas [statehood occurred in 1836], after the 1821 printing. This compilation prints the U.S. Constitution with twelve Amendments; the Treaty of Cession with Louisiana; the Acts providing for the government of the Missouri Territory, of which Arkansas was originally a part; the Act establishing the Arkansas Territory as "a separate Territorial Government for the Southern part of the Territory of Missouri"; and, alphabetically by subject, the Laws of Arkansas Territory.

Very Good plus, in later buckram [title and institutional stamp on spine]. These are the State's first revised statutes, organized alphabetically by subject and providing a window on the activities and concerns of this new Frontier State. Arkansas entered the Union in 1836. Pike asserts, "In no State was ever such a revision more imperatively called for, more needful for the common weal." The laws had been "an unseemly and incongruous superstructure," with "crude and incongruous laws, hatched in prolific brains." A Code for "Negroes and Mulattoes" is included, with a definition of the latter term. As in a number of other States, "No free negro or mulatto shall hereafter be permitted to emigrate to or settle in this State" without posting a bond for his support and good behavior. The detailed Index consumes about 150 pages. The Laws are preceded by the U.S. and Arkansas Constitutions, the Treaty of Cession of Louisiana, the Act of Admission of Arkansas, the supplementing Compact and its acceptance, and Pike's Preface.

The cases recorded here reflect the issues that engaged this frontier southwestern State: commercial matters, land boundaries and claims, agriculture contracts, the rules of civil and criminal procedure, duties of State officers, commerce in slaves. Pike was a colorful and interesting man on the frontier. He served, as here, not only as the Reporter of Decisions, but also at various times a poet, teacher, brigadier general in the Confederate Army, newspaper editor, and high officer in the Freemasons.

        Illuminated Ornaments selected from the Manuscripts and early printed books from the sixth to the seventeenth centuries.

      Imperial 4to on largest paper (38 x 27. London: William Pickering (printed by Charles Whittingham), 1833. Imperial 4to on largest paper (38 x 27.5 cms.), lithographed titlepage heightened with hand coloring, printed titlepage, 18 pp. of text; 40 leaves of descriptions between 59 magnificent etched or lithographed plates heightened with printed and hand-coloring, 4 of the early plates with a highly burnished background of gold leaf; and many other plates illuminated with liquid gold, 1 addendum leaf. A very fresh copy, in its most desirable format, of a truly rare book in any of its three formats (uncolored, colored, hand-colored and illuminated with gold). Contemporary full brown polished calf beautifully rebacked, covers panelled in gilt, gilt edges, armorial bookplate of Nevile Rodwell Wilkinson. A superb copy with Robin de Beaumont's original description and price retained at the front. First edition, largest paper format, of Shaw's first book with color plates (his third book overall); regular copies measure 28 x 21 cms (approximately) and have less finished coloring and the gold areas are printed in yellow. The work was issued in 12 monthly parts each containing 5 plates; it began in June 1830 and was issued at 3s 6d plain, 7s 6d colored, "and a very limited number will be printed in Imperial Quarto, and the ornaments more highly finished in opaque colors heightened with gold, at 15s each part." (prospectus). "In the large-paper copies, one can only say that the results are hardly less beautiful than the mediaeval originals; they are hand-illuminated with the utmost skill, and the gold used is gold leaf... this does make a considerable difference." (McLean). Ing quotes Hardie p.259: "With their careful selection of pigments and their faithful colouring, Shaw's reproductions attain almost to the brilliancy of an original manuscript." In all, an extraordinary book, described by A.N.L. Munby as "the most sensible and coherent essay about miniature painting at the time" and endorsing its continuing usefulness. In the same vein, Beckwith comments: "the first of many British 19th-century studies of illuminated manuscripts... such books opened the public's eyes to the aesthetic and historical value of manuscript arts... the format was a model for 19th-century studies of the history and methods of illumination... a landmark in the diffusion of information about manuscript arts and their history and made a significant contribution to Victorian bibliomania." This may in fact be the very first book on illumination and its history to have color plates, and can certainly be said to have had a profound influence on early Victorian taste in and appreciation of illuminated manuscripts. Abbey, Life, 234. Keynes p. 89. McLean, Victorian Book Design, p.65-66. Warren p. 155. Ing, Charles Whittingham Printer, 9: "Magnificent large paper copy with gold leaf." Friedman, Color Printing in England, 39 and illus. Beckwith, Victorian Bibliomania, 14. This copy purchased from Robin de Beaumont in 2003 and sold; repurchased in 2017. Nevile Rodwell Wilkinson was the Ulster King of Arms, the Principal Herald of all Ireland, and the Registrar of the Most Illustrious Order of Saint Patrick. His biography is extraordinary both as a very distinguished soldier and as an artist who created " Titania's Palace. This chef-d'œuvre en miniature, completed over some eighteen years, was unique in being neither a luxurious dolls' house nor a model of an existing or possible future structure. It covered a space of 63 square feet, and was finished in every conceivable detail. Wilkinson developed, with the aid of an etchers' glass, a technique for decoration he called 'mosaic painting': minute dots of watercolour, irregular in shape like mosaic tesserae, about 1000 to the square inch. The palace was opened in 1923 by Queen Mary and was much admired by the public. It was exhibited not only in the United Kingdom but also in the Netherlands, Canada, the United States, Argentina, Australia, and New Zealand, raising thousands of pounds for children's charities: the raison d'être of the entire exercise."

        American Ornithology; or, the Natural History of Birds inhabiting the United States, not given by Wilson

      Samuel Augustus Mitchell [vol I]; Carey, Lea & Carey [vols II & III]; Carey & Lea [vol IV], Philadelphia 1833 - Four volumes, small folio (15 x 12 inches [vols. 2 and 4] and 14 1/2 x 11 1/4 inches [vols. 1 and 3]. 27 hand-colored engraved plates by Alexander Lawson (11 after Titian R. Peale, 15 after A. Rider, and 1 after J.J. Audubon and A. Rider). Foxing to the text, particularly in vols. 3 and 4, though the plates clean throughout. Vols. 2 and 4 uncut. Publisher's half red morocco and marbled paper covered boards First edition, first issue of this important American ornithological work, with the plates beautifully hand colored. Bonaparte's important continuation of Wilson's American Ornithology describes 60 birds not in the original work. "A love for the same department of natural science, and a desire to complete the vast enterprise so far advanced by Wilson's labors, has induced us to undertake the present work," Bonaparte writes in the preface, "in order to illustrate what premature death prevented him from accomplishing, as well as the discoveries subsequently made in the feathered tribes of these States." "The work which had been performed by Wilson's hands alone now gave employment to several individuals. Titian R., the fourth son of Charles Wilson Peale, not only collected many of the birds figured while on the Long expedition, which were credited to Thomas Say, who originally described them in footnotes scattered through the report; or in a subsequent private trip to Florida during the winter and spring of 1825, under the patronage of Bonaparte; but also drew the figures engraved for the first, and two plates for the fourth and last volume. A German emigrant by the name of Alexander Rider, of whom little is known beyond that he was a miniature painter in 1813, and a portrait and historical painter in 1818, was responsible for the remainder of the drawings with the exception of the two figures of plate 4 of volume I." (Frank L. Burns, On Alexander Wilson ). That plate, the Great Crow Blackbird, is notable as being the first book appearance of any engraving after John James Audubon. Perhaps the most influential artist involved with the work, however, was Bonaparte's master engraver Alexander Lawson, arguably the most talented ornithological engraver in America at that time. Three issues of the first edition of Wilson's continuation have been identified. This set is comprised of the rare first issue of vol. 1 (with the Mitchell imprint and containing the first issue of plate 6 in that volume (see Ellis/Mengel) and with first issues of volumes two through four (published by Carey & Lea and printed by William Brown). Carey & Lea later reissued the first volume, with their own imprint, after purchasing the rights to the publication from Mitchell in 1828. The third issue includes volumes reprinted by T.K. and P.G. Collins (with their imprint replacing that of William Brown) for Carey & Lea with unchanged dates on the titles but actually printed in about 1835 after the completion of the final volume.

        Pons Augustus, Narni, 1833.

      - Öl auf Leinwand, doubliert. 57,7:84 cm. – Mit Überarbeitungen an den Rändern. Provenienz: Süddeutscher Privatbesitz. Der Pons Augustus war der Übergang der Via Flaminia über die Nera und ist in Augusteischer Zeit (30 v. Chr. – 14 n. Chr.) gebaut worden. Diese italienische Landschaft mit dem großen Repoussoir-Baum rechts geht auf Zeichnungen zurück, die Fries im Frühling 1826 angefertigt hat (vgl. WV Wechssler 294, Abb. S. 217 und 295, Farbtaf. 20). Zu Nr. 295 schreibt Wechssler: „Der Vermerk auf der Rückseite des Blattes Nr. 290 „Alte Mühle an der Nera bei Narni" gibt den Hinweis, dass Fries sich mit den beiden Blättern zur Vorbereitung zu geplanten Gemälden kurz vor seinem Tode beschäftigt hat Das Nachlaßverzeichnis führt allein 8 Papierarbeiten mit Motiven bei Narni auf (vgl. Lehmann, S. 195). Bei Wechssler sind im WV mit 706, 706a (ebenfalls unsigniert), 716 und 717 vier Gemälde genannt, die sämtlich 1833 entstanden sind, von weiteren ist der Verbleib unbekannt und es fehlen auch nähere Angaben dazu. Das vorliegende Gemälde wurde im Dezember 2001 Frau Dr. Wechssler vom Vorbesitzer in einem persönlichen Gespräch vorgestellt. Beim Betrachten des Original-Gemäldes bestätigte Frau Dr. Wechssler mündlich, daß dies eine authentische Arbeit von Ernst Fries sei.

        uvres complètes de Buffon mises en ordre et précédées d'une notice historique par M. A. Richard.

      - Paris, Pourrat Frères, 1833-1834; 22 volumes in-8 de près de 400 pp. chacun, demi-veau glacé havane de l'époque, dos lisses à faux nerfs, tranches marbrées, plats supérieurs de couvertures imprimées conservées pour les deux volumes de planches (minimes défauts du temps). Les 22 volumes. Nouvelle édition des ?uvres de Buffon, se composant de toutes les parties traitées par ce dernier, avec les différents suppléments qu'il y a successivement ajoutés, fondus dans le texte. Avec, dans le tome premier, un portrait gravé de l'auteur en frontispice, et des cartes d'Afrique et d'Amérique, dépliantes. Toutes les planches gravées ont été réunies dans deux volumes d'atlas, tomes 21 et 22 de la collection ; les couvertures conservées indiquent : "206 gravures pour les ?uvres complètes de Buffon". Ces deux volumes de planches comportent bien, malgré quelques erreurs de numérotation, 206 planches gravées (132 pour les oiseaux, 74 pour les mammifères), dont 205 ont été aquarellées à l'époque, représentant 589 sujets. La grande majorité des planches ont été dessinées par Vauthier ; 13 d'entre elles l'ont été par Traviès. Le relieur a inséré par erreur une planche ornithologique (n°44) dans la partie consacrée aux mammifères. Les gravures sur acier sont protégées par des serpentes. De rares rousseurs sont à signaler, sans gravité ; bel ensemble, complet. 1833

        ARCTIC] Poyezdka k Ledovitomu moryu [i.e. A Voyage to the Icy Sea]

      Typ. of Lazarevs' Institute of Foreign Languages, Moscow 1833 - Xv, iii, 259 pp. 21x13,5 cm. With additional copper engraved title page (decorated with two vignettes), four hand coloured folding lithographed plates (including a frontispiece; two signed and dated by the artist), and a folding copper engraved plate of snow flakes. Period style full leather with gilt tooled ornamental borders on boards and the spine (spine with gilt lettering). Lithographed title page with a minor chip of lower outer corner restored, title page with expert repair of central blank gutter margin, on verso imprint page with a few letters affected, but overall a very good handsome copy. First edition. Very rare with only four paper copies found in Worldcat. The book has never been translated into other languages, the only reprint edition was published in Tyumen in 2004. Interesting early account of the Siberian Arctic with a description of travels down the Ob River to the Gulf of Ob in the Kara Sea. The author Frants Belyavsky - a Russian doctor of Polish origin - travelled down the Irtysh and Ob Rivers from Tobolsk to Beryozov (nowadays Beryozovo) and Obdorsk (Salekhard) to survey the epidemic of syphilis among the natives and Russian settlers, and try to help its victims. The first cases of syphilis among the Samoyeds (Nenets people) and Ostyaks (Khanty people) in Beryozov were recorded in 1816-1817 (Belyavsky, p. 133-141). Starting in 1822 an annual trip by a doctor of the Medical Office of the Tobolsk Governorate had been organized, the doctor would report on the spread of the disease and provide necessary medication to the infected people. The treatment was quite effective and if in the early years ''there was not almost anyone among the Ostyaks who would not be infected'', in early 1828 out of over 21,000 people there were not more than 611 sick ones (Belyavsky, p. 139). Belyavsky took on the annual tour as a doctor in the service of the Tobolsk Medical Office in the early months of 1828. In his book he describes the voyage down the Irtysh and Ob Rivers from Tobolsk to Beryozov, giving interesting notes on the main villages along the way - Bronnikovo, Uvat, Yurovskoye, Demyanskoye, Denshchikovskoye, Samarovo, and others; separate chapters are dedicated to Beryozov - an important old post on the northern Russian fur trade route - and its historical sites; native settlements on the way to the Obdorsk fort, and the fort itself. Most of the book is dedicated to a thorough description of Ostyaks (Khanty) and Samoyeds (Nenets) - their origin, settlements, dwellings; appearance, physical and mental skills; language, manners and customs, clothes, food, occupations, way of entertainment, riches, state taxes, chiefs, system of justice, religion and shamans, and sicknesses (with a separate chapter on the syphilis epidemic). The book is supplemented with lists of mammals, birds, and plants native to northwestern Siberia ''from Obdorsk to the coast of the Icy Ocean''; a copy of a letter written by Alexander von Humboldt to the head of Tobolsk Medical Office whom he got to know during his stay in the city in 1829; a Russian-Ostyak dictionary; and an explanation of over twenty local terms. The book is illustrated with four attractive hand coloured lithographed plates showing 'Ostyak prince Taishin' with a small view of the Obdorsk fort underneath (frontispiece); 'Ostyaks during hunting', 'Samoyeds. Shaman. Chief Paygol' (both signed and dated 1832); and a view of a Nenets settlement showing a yurt, an idol in a tree, hunters, reindeers, a dog sled, a person playing a musical instrument, and others. Two lithographs are signed 'Zheren. 1832' - by a member of the Zheren family - Russian painters and graphic artists, most likely by Ivan Ivanovich Zheren (18th century - after 1850), a watercolour artist and lithographer. There is also an engraved view of different forms of snow crystals from the shores of the 'Icy Sea'. Overall a very interesting rare and beautiful book on the Russian Arctic. Belyavsky graduated from St. Peter [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Troisiéme Lettre d'un Rabbin Converti, aux Israélites ses Frères, sur les Motifs de sa Conversion. Prophétie d'Isaïe VII. 14. Expliquées par les Traditions de la Synagogue.

      Rome, l'Auteur, au collége de St. Bonaventure; Bourliè, and Paris, Bricon, etc., 1833.. Royal octavo. Pp. xvii, 364. Footnotes, errata. Bound in the original printed wrappers, these spotted, bit chipped, strengthened along spine, manuscript shelf-label. (Fore-edge of first few leaves bit browned; old institutional stamps to blank prelims.) In a very good condition, preserved in the original state, with interior in overall fine condition. ~ First edition. Marrano Paul Louis Bernard Drach (David), (1791, Strasburg-1868, Rome), a Talmudic scholar, Grand-Rabbi, a well-known converted Jew. In 1823 he renounced Judaism in the presence of Archbishop Quélen, was baptized, and received his first Holy Communion and the Sacrament of Confirmation. In 1827 appointed librarian of the Propaganda in Rome, an office he held until his death. Rosenthal, in his "Convertitenbilder" writes: "The conversion of this learned Jew is undoubtedly one of the most important conversions effected by the grace of God during this century in France. It became the source of salvation to many of his coreligionists." Of Drach's numerous writings, "Lettres d'un rabbin converti aux Israélites, ses frères" is the most important. Highly anti-Semitic, it incriminates the Jews as practicioners of ritual murder. "The zeal of these Rabbis goes as far as dedicating to death all those who follow the doctrine of the Trinity, and consequently all Christian Israelites," Drach writes. In his "Harmonie entre l'église et la synagogue" (Paris, 1844) he even asserts that the Jews of Damascus had been responsible for the ritual murder of the Capuchin Fr. Thomas in 1840, and that their guilt had been established beyond doubt. Exceedingly scarce. OCLC lists only 3 copies worldwide, one of which is incomplete.
