         Narrative of the Surveying Voyages of the Adventure and the Beagle between the years 1826 and 1836, Describing Their Examination of the Southern Shores of South America, and the Beagle's Circumnavigation of the Globe

      London: Henry Colburn, 1839. - 4 volumes 8vo (9 x 5 6/8 inches): 47 engraved plates (spotted and a bit browned) and 9 folding maps by J. Gardner and J. and C. Walker, including one loose in pocket at end of volume II (one or two repairs at folds); lacking the half-title in volume I. Modern full navy morocco, gilt. PROVENANCE: with the faint penciled ownership inscription of Rev. John Allen Wedgwood (1796-1882), who officiated at the wedding of his cousins Emma Wedgewood and Charles Darwin in 1839, on the half-title of volume III. "IT DETERMINED MY WHOLE CAREER" (Darwin). First edition, first issue of volume III, which is Darwin's "Journal and Remarks 1832-1836" and his first printed book, and a pleasing association copy. This celebrated voyage, which lasted five years, was the "key formative event in Darwin's life. It 'determined my whole career' (Autobiography, 76), giving him an unrivalled opportunity to make observations, collect animals and plants, and explore some of the most beautiful, desolate, and isolated places in the world. Under FitzRoy the voyage's objectives extended to include geophysical measurements, and the 'Beagle' was equipped with a variety of instruments and devices, including a lightning conductor and a large number of marine chronometers for measuring longitude. The Admiralty intended the officers to make a chain of exceptionally accurate measurements round the globe. The ship also carried out trials on Beaufort's wind scale" (Desmond, Moore, and Browne). Between 1832 and 1836 the 'Beagle' visited the Cape Verde Islands, Brazil, Montevideo and Buenos Aires, Tierra del Fuego and Cape Horn, the Falkland Islands, Patagonia, the west coast of South America (Chiloé, Valparaíso, Lima), most famously the Galápagos Islands, Tahiti, New Zealand, Australia (Sydney, Tasmania, King George's Sound), the Cocos (Keeling) Islands, Mauritius, Cape Town, and St Helena and Ascension. In all these places Darwin collected a vast numbers of specimens: insects, birds, molluscs, small vertebrates, invertebrates, and plants, meticulously recording their provenance, appearance, and behaviour in his notebooks and diaries. Of these the specimens the greatest and most important by far became the birds from the Galápagos Islands, which the ornithologist and artist John Gould helped Darwin to classify on his return to England. The similarities and differences between the species inhabiting different islands, and between the island species and those of continental South America, gave rise to Darwin's initial thoughts on the possibility of transmutation of characteristics in species, and represents to history the origin of his revolutionary and controversial theories of evolution.

         Narrative of the Surveying Voyages of His Majesty's Ships Adventure and Beagle, between the years 1826 and 1836.

      Henry Colburn, London 1839 - Four volumes, octavo, with four charts bound in and eight loose folding maps (two accompanying each volume in original endpaper sleeve), and a total of 44 engraved plates after Augustus Earle and Conrad Martens; an attractive set in the original uniform publisher's cloth; slipcase. First edition, comprising first issues in the original cloth bindings, of the full narrative of one of the greatest marine and scientific surveys of all time. The first published account of the voyages of the Beagle, this famous publication includes the full account written by Charles Darwin, the first major work published by him. As the greatest voyage of the intellect, as the voyage has been described, the Beagle voyage of 1831-36 perfectly encapsulates the spirit of the historical period of Enlightenment voyages as well as being one of its highest achievements, a voyage of discovery that would change scientific thinking and ultimately the understanding of man's place in the universe.The voyage is renowned above all else because of Fitzroy's choice of Charles Darwin as naturalist, but the narrative also includes a large section written by Phillip Parker King describing his experience aboard the Beagle, work which confirmed his status as the pre-eminent Australian cartographer.'Fitzroy, who was more concerned with science than were many naval officers of his day, made it possible for Darwin to visit tropical lands and study their flora, fauna, and geology. The two men shared the same cabin and Fitzroy was attentive to the scientific needs and interests of the young Darwin. Fitzroy's violent temper and his conservative opinions on religion and slavery were responsible for some disagreements between them, but Fitzroy and Darwin remained on friendly terms' (DSB). Many years later Darwin reflected in his autobiography that Fitzroy's character 'was in several respects one of the most noble which I have ever known' and expressed his immense debt to his time in the Beagle: 'The voyage of the Beagle has been by far the most important event in my life, and has determined my whole career?'.Publication of Darwin's journal had been urged by Fitzroy during the voyage. It was finally included as the third volume of the official Narrative, which was under the overall editorship of Fitzroy, and it was in this form that Darwin's first book was published. Immediately popular, it was reprinted several times with different titles, but is widely known today as The Voyage of the Beagle. Freeman notes 'His first published book is undoubtedly the most often read and stands second only On the Origin of Species as the most often printed'. It was also one of Darwin's personal favourites, as he writes in his autobiography: 'The success of this my first literary child tickles my vanity more than that of any of my other books'.Volume I of the Narrative concerns the initial surveying expedition of the coasts of Patagonia and Tierra del Fuego, 1826-30, under Phillip Parker King in the Adventure, during which Fitzroy succeeded Pringle Stokes as commander of the accompanying Beagle. Volume II describes Fitzroy's continuation and completion of the survey with the Beagle alone in South America, Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti, and many other groups in the course of the circumnavigation. 'The surveys he carried out in South American waters established Fitzroy as a first-rate hydrographer and won for him the gold medal of the Royal Geographical Society (1837). Because his marine surveys were accurate to such a high degree they are still used as the foundation for a number of charts of that area' (DSB). Volume II includes a separately bound appendix of bearings and observations by Fitzroy that is likewise accompanied by two folding maps.This set comprises first issues of all three volumes. Demand for the third volume - Darwin's work - so exceeded that for the first two volumes that it had to be rapidly reissued in 1839 as a publication in its own right with the substantially different ti [Attributes: Soft Cover]

         A collection of Artist's Proof Plates of images from "American Scenery"

      , 1839. 1839. A group of 32 steel engraved proofs on india paper for Bartlett's famous "American Scenery." The images are mounted uniformly on larger card and are all captioned on the card with a preliminary title for the print, in three different penciled handwriting. Some have indications of page numbers "p. 12, p. 108".The bulk of the images (18) are of New York State. The titles below are listed as they appear, (sic). The NY images include "Hudson Highlands Bull Hill; View from West Point on the Hudson N. Yk.; Crow's Nest from Bull Hill West Point; Village of Sing Sing on the Hudson; Chapel of our Lady of Coldspring; View near Anthonys Nose Hudson; Entrance to Hudson Highlands, near Newburgh; The Narrows, Lake George; Little Falls, on the Mohawk; Village of Cattskill (sic); Rail Road Scene, Little Falls; The Outlet of Niagara River; Brock's Monument; New York from Weehawken; Narrows from Fort Hamilton, N.Y.; Park & City Hall, New York; Sabbath Day Point, Lake George; The Rapids above the Falls of Niagara.

India paper measures approx. 11 x 8 1/2"; the card measures 16 x 10 3/4". The images are pristine- the cards are uniformly tanned with a few a little foxed. An unknown previous owner has penciled at the top border of the cards "1839 artists proof of engraving from Bartletts "American Scenery". RARE." This would be easily erasable. The University of Guelph, Ontario holds an associated item, although the listing is a bit unclear.OCLC: 626941313 lists "Archival Material 119 plates (&) Thesis/dissertation/manuscript ." An interesting grouping to research the development of Bartlett's steel engravings.

Lloyd, inner dentelles, gilt edges, marbled endpapers, plates slightly spotted, a fine copy. Rare privately printed journal of Davidson's attempt to cross the Western Sahara from Tangier to Timbuktoo which ended with his murder in November 1836. John Davidson (1797-1836), an English adventurer, embarked at Falmouth on 1834, taking with him the freed slave Edward Donellan. On arrival at Tangier the British consul begged Davidson to give up his visit to Timbuktu on account of the tribal warfare being waged on the edge of the Sahara, but the explorer pressed on regardless. He arrived at Fez and left for the desert, passing through Marrakesh, and eventually reached the Wadi Num (Noun or Assaka). In the region of Tindouf he was shot dead and his possessions stolen. Donellan continued with the caravan to Timbuktu and was never heard of again. Davidson's letters and most of his journal found their way back to Britain and were privately published in 1839. The fine plates depict two views of Wadnoon and one of the river Draha. Howgego D4; Playfair & Brown, 609. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Metodo pratico per scalcare, e far servire in tavola. Lista di quattro piatti al giorno per un anno intero e finalmente una cucina casareccia in dialetto napoletano con altra lista analoga. Seconda edizione. Napoli, dalla tipografia di G. Palma, 1839. In 8vo; pp.VIII,440. In fine quattro tavole spieghevoli. Ex libris. Mezza pelle coeva, titolo e fregi in oro al dorso. Westbury, pag.44; Paleari Henssler, 585. Raro. "Ippolito duca di Buonvicino, apparteneva ad un'antica famiglia nobile che discendeva direttamente dal famosissimo Guido Cavalcanti, amico di Dante e poeta del dolce stilnovo. Con la sua opera seppe fotografare una parte rilevante della cucina napoletana dell'Ottocento. "Cucina teorico pratica", scritta con stile semplice e immediato, note argute e interessanti osservazioni, venne pubblicata per la prima volta a Napoli nel 1837. Il Duca suddivise il manuale in due parti, compiendo un itinerario attraverso i diversi ceti sociali, fatto assai inusuale al tempo. La prima sezione venne redatta in lingua italiana, per nobili e ricchi borghesi. La seconda fu scritta in dialetto napoletano, per il popolo e la borghesia che usava il dialetto quale linguaggio quotidiano. Ippolito, oltre alle varie ricette, aggiunse in dialetto napoletano anche dei piatti per le ricorrenze importanti dell'anno: Natale, Capodanno, Pasqua ecc."

         A collection of Artist's Proof Plates of images from "American Scenery"

      1839 - A group of 32 steel engraved proofs on india paper for Bartlett's famous "American Scenery." The images are mounted uniformly on larger card and are all captioned on the card with a preliminary title for the print, in three different penciled handwriting. Some have indications of page numbers "p. 12, p. 108". The bulk of the images (18) are of New York State. The titles below are listed as they appear, (sic). The NY images include "Hudson Highlands Bull Hill; View from West Point on the Hudson N. Yk.; Crow's Nest from Bull Hill West Point; Village of Sing Sing on the Hudson; Chapel of our Lady of Coldspring; View near Anthonys Nose Hudson; Entrance to Hudson Highlands, near Newburgh; The Narrows, Lake George; Little Falls, on the Mohawk; Village of Cattskill (sic); Rail Road Scene, Little Falls; The Outlet of Niagara River; Brock's Monument; New York from Weehawken; Narrows from Fort Hamilton, N.Y.; Park & City Hall, New York; Sabbath Day Point, Lake George; The Rapids above the Falls of Niagara. The remaining images are of New England, Pennsylvania and the mid-Atlantic States. These include: Descent into Wyoming Valley; Trenton High Falls; Washington's Monument, Baltimore; East Point and Passamaquoddy Bay; Lake Winipiseogee; Notch House, White Mountains; Meredith, New Hampshire; Mount Jefferson from Mount Washington; Boston & Bunker Hill from the East; Valley of the Connecticut from Mount Holyoke; View on the Susquehanna; Northumberland, on Susquehanna; Mount Tom & the Connecticut River; Valley of the Shenandoah from Jeffersons Rock. India paper measures approx. 11 x 8 1/2"; the card measures 16 x 10 3/4". The images are pristine- the cards are uniformly tanned with a few a little foxed. An unknown previous owner has penciled at the top border of the cards "1839 artists proof of engraving from Bartletts "American Scenery". RARE." This would be easily erasable. The University of Guelph, Ontario holds an associated item, although the listing is a bit unclear. OCLC: 626941313 lists "Archival Material 119 plates (&) Thesis/dissertation/manuscript ." An interesting grouping to research the development of Bartlett's steel engravings. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

         [Pre-Raphaelite Stained Glass Watercolor Design- Thomas WIlliam Camm, Camm Studios] Exquisite Watercolor Triptych

      Spectacular large square triptych watercolor stained-glass design by Thomas William Camm, mounted onto thick cardboard. Written in calligraphic hand by Camm below the paintings, but on the artboard: "T. W. Camm * No. 487 * Smethwick." Expertly painted with a high degree of detail and skill. Thomas William Camm (1839-1912), founder, chief artist/designer and manufacturer of stained glass in England, opening operation in 1865 as Camm Brothers in Smethwick, and later, "The Studio." Thomas Camm was one of the most accomplished stained glass designers of the period. The American architect Ralph Adams Cram wrote "at the present moment a large number of artists in England are producing work of most singular beauty and perfection. Amongst these I have no hesitation in placing Mr. Camm easily as the first". His daughter Florence Camm produced most of the artwork for the company after his death in 1912. The studio won medals in Paris in 1878, Sydney in 1879 and in Turin in 1911 and commissions came in from America, Spain, New Zealand and India. Dozens of churches, institutions and private homes in England still boast stained glass windows designed by Camm and his daughter. Near fine. Provenance: Directly from Camm Studio Estate.
