Nel 1806 fu nominato pittore del Dépót de la Guerre ed illustrò, come nel presente volume, molte scene di battaglie seguite alle campagne napoleoniche, animate molto spesso dalla presenza di cavalli, soggetti da lui prediletti.

      Vol.I [II; III; IV; V; VI; VII]. London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green and Longman [so volumes I - V; volumes VI. and VII. read: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans], 1834 [1834; 1835; 1837; 1838; 1847]. 7 Vols., complete, lge.12mo; half-title in each volume; title-pages printed in red and black; title leaf to volume four a cancel tipped-on to a stub; two line Errata slip tipped-in after title leaf in volume six; coloured lithographic frontispiece by Glover in volume seven; pp.xxi+[i (blank)]+312; xxviii+351+[i (printer's imprint; xxix+[i (five line Errata)]+345+[i (printer's imprint)]; xxvii+[i (blank)]; xxx+387+[i (printer's imprint)]; xxxviii+386; [2]+xli+[i (blank)]+630+[ii (blank with printer's imprint on verso)]; publisher's catalogue, 12pp. on smaller paper, dated 'January, 1835', tipped on to front end-paper of volume one; publisher's four-page advertisement 'Specimen Of The student's manual' sewn in between front end-papers in volume four; publisher's catalogue, 16pp. on smaller paper, dated 'August, 1838', sewn in between front end-papers in volume five; publisher's catalogue, 32pp. on smaller paper, dated 'October, 1847', bound in at end of text in volume six; publisher's green fine-morocco cloth, paper spine-label; top- and fore- edges uncut, lower-edges rough trimmed. Some rubbing and dustmarking to labels; volumes one to three unobtrusively rebacked with matching cloth, and the end-papers sympathetically replaced; back joint similarly repaired in volumes four and six; back end-papers insignificantly cracked in volumes six and seven; in general effect a very nice copy, the text fine throughout. Evidently inspired by Sterne's 'Tristram Shandy', and including many eccentricities of organisation and typography, 'The Doctor' is a fantastic, rambling, miscellany, containing a collection of articles on a great variety of subjects, differing from a commonplace book in that they are connected together, somewhat loosely, by the story that runs through them of an imaginary Dr. Daniel Dove of Doncaster and his horse Nobs. "Its humor is occasionally Rabelaisian." - OCEL, p. 228. Among other things of interest, it includes the first appearance in print (on pp.318 - 326 of volume four) of 'The Story of the Three Bears' - but with a 'Little Old Woman' featured instead of Goldilocks. The volumes are also known with a publisher's catalogue dated May, 1834 in volume one, June 1838 in volume five, October 1846 in volume six, and April 1847 in volume seven. According to the 'English Catalogue of Books', the first volume was published in January. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

        Journal of an Embassy from the Govenor-General of India to the Courts of Siam and Cochin China; exhibiting a view of the actual state of those kingdoms. [Together with:] Journal of an Embassy from the Governor General of India to the Court of Ava. With an appendix, containing a description of fossil remains, by Professor Buckland and Mr. Clift.

      London: Henry Colburn and Richard Bentley, [and] Published for Henry Colburn, by R. Bentley (and 2 others, Edinburgh and Dublin), 1830 & 1834 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original drab brown fine diaper-grain cloth, spines gilt lettered and blind ruled, blind ornamental panelling on sides, yellow coated endpapers. A touch of foxing in places. An excellent set, the hinges not cracked. Siam: 12 plates (7 folding, 5 double-page), large folding map of "Siam and Cochin China", plan of Bangkok, folding map and plan of Singapore, 4 wood-engraved plates, 7 wood-engraved vignettes, folding letterpress table of vocabularies. Ava: 5 plates (4 folding, one double-page), large folding map of "Burman Dominions and adjacent Countries", folding plan of Ava, one wood-engraved plate, 5 wood-engraved vignettes. First octavo editions, second overall, following the firsts of 1828 and 1829. These pioneering and handsomely-illustrated works on Siam (Thailand), Cochin China (Vietnam) and Ava (Burma), are based on the first-hand experience of the Scottish orientalist and colonial administrator John Crawfurd (1783-1868). "On resuming service in India in 1821 [after accompanying Lord Minto's expedition to Java] Crawfurd was appointed to head a mission to Siam and Vietnam, with the primary objective of opening up commerce. He made little headway with the suspicious local authorities and achieved no political and little commercial advantage, despite instructions to seek trade on liberal terms without demanding the exclusive privileges customary in the past. But the official report, which he submitted on his return to Calcutta in December 1822, provided invaluable information. When Sir Stamford Raffles retired from the residency of Singapore in June 1823, he appointed Crawfurd as his successor. Crawfurd was impatient and quick-tempered, but Singapore prospered under his stewardship. An ardent free trader, he pruned administrative expenses, abolished port fees, and confined taxes to pleasures, vices, and extravagance, such as opium, alcohol, and gambling. His major achievement was to propose and negotiate a treaty of friendship and alliance, signed with the local chiefs on 2 August 1824, ceding the whole island to the East India Company. In March 1826 Crawfurd was posted to be civil commissioner in Rangoon at the end of the First Anglo-Burmese War and was appointed by the governor-general to head a mission to the Burmese court at Ava, 500 miles up the Irrawaddy River. He was warned to adopt a conciliatory attitude and negotiate a commercial treaty on the basis of equality. He left Rangoon in September 1826, and on his journey along the Irrawaddy he made notes on geology and collected seven large chests of wood, bone, and rock specimens. He was received fairly courteously by the Burmese king but encountered many frustrations in Ava. The commercial treaty concluded on 23 November 1826 offered little, but Crawfurd presented a comprehensive report on Burma on his return to Calcutta in February 1827. The following year Crawfurd retired permanently to England, where he published the accounts of his various missions: Journal of an Embassy from the Governor General of India to the Courts of Siam and Cochin China (1828) and Journal of an Embassy from the Governor General of India to the Court of Ava (1829). These were well received, and both volumes were reprinted in more popular format a few years later" (ODNB). Sets of both works paired together and in such exceptional original condition - the cloth bindings bright and sharp cornered - are most uncommon. Howgego II C54 & C55.

        An Original Pencil and Wash Sketch.

      [1834] Unsigned orig. pencil & wash sketch on paper, laid down on later paper with loose card mount. 11.5 x 15.5cm.The sketch is accompanied by a manuscript note laid down on a piece of card: 'Drawn by W.M. Thackeray as we were talking together in my lodgings, Southampton Street, Holborn, in the Winter or Spring of 1834. [Signed] 'Edward FitzGerald'. The sketch is of a well-to-do man and woman in 18thC dress standing in the foreground with a rural scene behind them. Thackeray met and befriended Edward FitzGerald, the poet best known for his translation of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, during his unsuccessful time studying at Cambridge. In a letter to FitzGerald on October 8, 1834 (one of only three letters recorded for 1834 in The Letters and Private Correspondence ...) , Thackeray writes: 'What I like to think of better than your generosity or the cause of it, is the noble & brotherly love, wh. I believe unites us together; my dear friend & brother, may God grant that no time or circumstance ever should diminish this love between us ...' In 1834, having rejected a career at the Bar, Thackeray moved to Paris to study art. Evidently he made trips back to England and took time to see FitzGerald with whom he loved to discuss art, and, as his letter of October suggests, to send him sketches: '... to night I start at the life academy; I will make the drawings you wish - I made two failures of the Sheriff, & the Gamekeeper otherwise you would have had them with the others'.

        TOM CRINGLE'S LOG. A New Edition, Revised and Corrected. In Three Volumes

      Philadelphia: E.L. Carey & A. Hart, 1834. Hardcover. Good. The title character of this novel, which was originally published serially in Blackwood's Magazine, is a midshipman serving aboard the HMS Torch. Scott (1789-1835) spent some sixteen years of his life (1806-22) in the West Indies, in connection with a mercantile house in Kingston, Jamaica. His travels among the neighboring islands and to the Spanish Main informed his vivid portrayals of the Caribbean and life at sea. 12mo. Original paper-covered boards over red cloth spines, with printed paper spine labels. Some general foxing to the contents, with the pencil signature of James A. Nowland of Delaware to the prefatory leaves in all three volumes. A portion of the front flyleaf in the third volume has been excised. Faint stain to the top corner of the front board of the first volume. The corners are showing, with sun fading along the spines. A fantastic Los Angeles association of two of the most important Angelinos at the dawn of the 20th century, this copy is inscribed to "Henry W. O'Melveny with love from Chas. F. Lummis, 1914" on the front flyleaf in the first volume. Each volume is also signed by Lummis on the title page, with his 1897 bookplate to each front pastedown. Lummis was the author and crusading journalist who served as the first City Editor of the Los Angeles Times. He later became City Librarian, and founded the Southwest Museum. Together with Jackson Graves, O'Melveny founded the prestigious law firm O'Melveny & Myers, and played an important role in transforming the arid basin of Los Angeles into a thriving metropolis. O'Melveny also played an important role in Lummis' life, representing him during his contentious 1912 divorce from his wife Eve: "[Lummis also had two of the most prominent lawyers in Los Angeles on his side, Isidore Dockweiler and Henry O'Melveny. They helped him shield the one asset he has that Eve might go after in a divorce proceeding - El Alisal itself and the many valuable artifacts and rare books that filled it to the rafters" (Thompson, Mark: American Character, p.280).

        A manual of the ornithology of the United States and Canada. The land birds. (together with) A manual of the ornithology of the Unites States and Canada. The water birds

      Cambridge: Hilliard and Brown; Hilliard, Gray and Co., 1834. FIRST EDITIONS. With 114 beautiful woodcut text illustrations. Original publisher's cloth with paper spine labels, binding of second work unglued at front and spine; some light browning (heavier to preliminaries and endleaves) and scattered foxing. From the library of Dr. Robert Peter, with his book labels and ownership inscription to both volumes. First edition of "one of the earliest landmarks in the history of American ornithology." Written by one of the leading naturalists of the time, this work covers hundreds of land and water birds found on the North American continent, providing detailed descriptions of physical aspects, as well as of nesting and feeding habits. Based partially upon Nuttall's own observations and partly on the writings of Audubon, Wilson and others, Nuttall wrote the manual after having traveled extensively through North America.Nuttall (1786-1859), a distinguished botanist and zoologist, later became curator of the botanical gardens at Harvard University. While traveling the route taken by Lewis and Clark, accompanied by the English Botanist John Bradbury, he discovered several previously unknown plants, afterwards writing his North American Sylva, the first book to include all of the trees of North America. Several bird species have been named after Nuttall, including the Piccoides nuttalii, by his friend William Gambel, and the Pica nuttalli and Phalaenoptilus nuttalli by James Audubon.Robert Peter (b.1805) was born in England and settled in Pennsylvania in 1821. Initially he devoted his attention to botany, founding a botanical society, and becoming associated in the organization of the Philosophical society and the Philological institute of Pittsburgh. He was first a professor of chemistry at Transylvania University, then entered the medical department, graduating in 1834 and becoming professor of chemistry and pharmacy there. During the greater part of the civil war he was employed as acting assistant surgeon in charge of the United States general hospitals in Lexington. In 1865 he was appointed professor of chemistry and experimental natural philosophy at Kentucky University, which in 1866 acquired the Agricultural and mechanical college of Kentucky, in which he remained until 1887, when he was made emeritus.

        Duke of Wellington Signed Envelope

      Envelope signed ('Wellington') and addressed in the Duke's hand to a recipient in Earlham, Norwich, postmarked "2 Feb 1834", mounted together with a color reproduction of the portrait of Wellington by Thomas Lawrence and medal ribbons of the same kind as those Wellington was awarded. Double matted and framed. The entire piece measures 12.5 inches by 17 inches. Field Marshal Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, was an Anglo-Irish soldier and statesman who was one of the leading military and political figures of 19th-century Britain. His defeat of Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo in 1815 put him in the first rank of Britain's military heroes. Wellesley rose to prominence as a general during the Peninsular campaign of the Napoleonic Wars, and was promoted to the rank of field marshal after leading the allied forces to victory against the French Empire at the Battle of Vitoria in 1813. Following Napoleon's exile in 1814, he served as the ambassador to France and was granted a dukedom. During the Hundred Days in 1815, he commanded the allied army which, together with a Prussian army under Blucher, defeated Napoleon at Waterloo. Wellington's battle record is exemplary; he ultimately participated in some 60 battles during the course of his military career. Wellington is famous for his adaptive defensive style of warfare, resulting in several victories against numerically superior forces while minimizing his own losses. He is regarded as one of the greatest defensive commanders of all time, and many of his tactics and battle plans are still studied in military academies around the world. After the end of his active military career, Wellington returned to politics. He was twice British prime minister as part of the Tory party: from 1828 to 1830, and for a little less than a month in 1834. He oversaw the passage of the Catholic Relief Act 1829, but opposed the Reform Act 1832. He continued as one of the leading figures in the House of Lords until his retirement and remained Commander-in-Chief of the British Army until his death.

        De Corneae Transplantatione. Dissertatio Inauguralis.

      Bonnae, typis Caroli Georgii, 1834, 4, 3 Bl., 26 pp., 3 handcolorierte lith. Tafeln mit 8 Abbildungen, feiner roter Halbleinenband der Zeit, Goldschnitt und Rückenvergoldung feines Exemplar. Erste Auflage! Im Jahre 1834 promovierte Wilhelm Thomé (1809 (10 ?)-1846) mit dieser Arbeit über die Verpflanzung der Hornhaut. Er experimentierte ebenfalls an Hunden und Kaninchen und konnte sich rühmen, daß die Hornhaut, in fünf von acht Versuchen einheilte, angeblich mit teilweisem Erhalt der Durchsichtigkeit. Thomés Methode bestand darin, mit dem Starmesser etwas vom Rande der Cornea entfernt einzugehen und sie dann mit der Schere auszuschneiden. Später benutze er dazu ein zweischneidiges Messer. Er gewann zunächst das Transplantat auf diese Weise und excidierte erst dann am Empfängerauge. Zur Befestigung verwendete er Ligaturen und verzichtete auf anschließenden Verschluß des Auges, da er sich so einen besseren Abfluß des Wundsekrets versprach." Giese Angeregt durch Arbeiten von Stilling und Thomé führten nach 1840 Ärzte verschiedener Nationalitäten, zu denen Davis, Plouvier, Feldmann und Hauenstein gehörten unter Leitung Desmarres Tierversuche durch, deren Ergebnisse Desmarres 1843 der Académie Royale des Sciences vorlegte und in der er feststellte, daß die Übertragung von Hornhaut eines Tieres auf ein anderes gut möglich sei, daß sie auch anwachse, aber sich bis auf manchmal klarbleibende Randpartien stets eintrübe. Münchow Wilhelm Thomé, am 22. Dez. 1809 geboren in Oberollendorf bei Bonn, studierte seit 1828 Medizin in Bonn und promovierte dort 1834, anschließend setzte er seine Studien in Berlin fort, kehrte 1836 als approbierter Arzt nach Bonn zurück und unternahm von dort aus Studienreisen nach Wien, Venedig, Neapel, Florenz, Rom und Paris. 1838 ließ er sich in Köln nieder und errichtete dort eine Augenheilanstalt, die er erfolgreich leitete. 1846 starb er an den Folgen eines Schlaganfalles.

A collection of writings on madness by the head of medecine st Bicetre Hospital in Paris and chief editor of Annales d'hygiene publique et de medecine legale. Covers and first few pages dog- eared. First gathering loose. Light foxing throughout. Scarce. "Leuret was an important figure in the early days of French psychiatry. He stressed the importance of using a rational and humane approach in treatment of the mentally ill, and also believed that the criminally insane were sick individuals who were incapable of controlling their behavior. He felt that the origins of mental illness were unknown, and that it was wrong to define madness from only a somatic standpoint. Leuret's psychiatric theories put him at odds with other French physicians, particularly those who thought that the source of mental illness could be localized to a specific part of the brain's anatomy. He was also scornful of the speculative theory of phrenology." (Wickipedia)

        [Early American Cloth] The Last Days of Pompeii. By the Author of "Pelham," "Eugene Aram," "England and the English," &c. . . . In two Volumes

      New York: Published by Harper & Brothers ... and Sold by the principal Booksellers throughout the United States. 1834. First American Edition of Bulwer's hugely successful novel, complete in two duodecimo volumes. xii,[2],9-240; 201,[3],28(publisher's catalogue),[8][further advertisements)pp. Original publisher's peach-colored cloth, printed paper spine labels, contemporary manuscript ex-libris to title pages. Spines a shade lightened, else an exceptionally crisp, clean, well-preserved set, in early American cloth. First published in London the same year, The Last Days of Pompeii, Bulwer's single most successful book, "rapidly achieved classic status and remained a best-seller for the rest of the century; it was translated into at least ten languages (no fewer than sixteen French impressions had been issued by 1864), was frequently dramatized, and twice adapted as an opera. Two years after the death of [Walter] Scott, Bulwer's epic tale of Roman indulgence, Christian martyrdom, and the cataclysmic eruption of Vesuvius established him as the most popular historical novelist of the day." (ODNB) The novel was inspired by both Bulwer's visit to the ruins of Pompeii and by Karl Briullov's monumental painting The Last Days of Pompeii, which Bulwer saw when it was exhibited in Milan, in 1828. Walter Scott described the painting as an "epic in colors," and it inspired a poem by Pushkin. After many years at the Louvre, it is now housed at the State Russian Museum, in St. Petersburg. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Fine.

        European Colonies, in Various Parts of the World,

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1834. viewed in their social, moral, and physical condition. 2 volumes, octavo (213 x 132 mm). Contemporary green calf, richly gilt spines with central floral motifs, dark red twin labels, concentric gilt and blind stamped ornamental panels on sides, gilt Greek-key roll tool on turn-ins, marbled edges and endpapers. Late 19th-century engraved rococo-style armorial bookplates of Henry James Wilkinson, with his inscription in volume I ("H. J. Wilkinson from his friend Chas. Lipscomb") and pencilled ownership inscriptions of Charles Henry Lipscomb; both men were clerics, Lipscomb in Norfolk and Wilkinson in Staffordshire, and had been at Oxford together; 20th-century bookplate of Peter and Margery Morris (Faskally, Perthshire). Extremities a little rubbed, touch of foxing in places. A very good set, with half-titles. First edition, well represented institutionally but commercially uncommon; a most attractively presented copy in a superior contemporary binding. John Howison (1797-1859) was a Scot who from 1818 to 1820 travelled in Quebec and Ontario, and whose Sketches of Canada (1821), published when he was still in his mid-twenties, "was an immediate success and is one of the best documentary sources for pioneer life in Canada" (ODNB). In 1822 he went to Bombay as an assistant surgeon with the East India Company and "was stationed in Poona in 1825, and belonged to the literary society there. Descriptions of the life of the foreign colony in Bombay and a journey through the Deccan with Major-General Sir Lionel Smith can be found in Howison's Foreign Scenes and Travelling Recreations (1825)" (ibid.). He also began contributing stories - largely "tales of terror" - to Blackwood's Magazine and has been described as "an important early contributor" (Anthony Jarrells in Romanticism and Blackwood's Magazine: 'An Unprecedented Phenomenon', 2013, p. 271). However, "he demonstrated that he was more than an author of light travel works and fiction with his unjustly neglected European Colonies … Viewed in their Social, Moral, and Physical Condition (1834). In this, his most ambitious work, Howison's analysis ranges over Africa, India, the Caribbean, and the Arctic" (ODNB). Volume I is given over to west and south Africa and India; volume II to a continuation of India, then the Arctic, West Indies, and British America. Howison is one of the most interesting British travel writers of the first half of the 19th century.
