Description:
London: Thomas Lee, 1676. Edited by William Rawley. Tenth edition ( xiv, 235 pp.; iv, 32 pp.; ii, pp. 239- 267; ii, pp. 271- 340; ii, pp. [221]- 227). Page 226 misnumbered as p. 234 in Articles of Enquiry, which itself is separately numbered; separate title page for each inclusion. Small folio (20 cm x 30 cm) in full contemporary leather, five raised bands, gilt title and decoration to spine; absent any frontis, plates; chips to margin of first few pages; hinges and tips expertly repaired. Contemporary marginalia, in ink and pencil, has been retained as part of the ‘life’ of this book, which from all appearances has been closely studied and carefully kept. A pleasing copy of this tenth edition-- a sort of Bacon anthology, originally compiled by Rawley shortly after Bacon’s death, and exemplifying the ‘new thinking’ which anticipated later systematic scientific investigation, formation of Royal societies, and the like. In view of the importance usually attached to… Read more

Description:
London: Longman, 1857. First edition (v, 111 pp., advert.). Green cloth with impressed decorations, gilt lettering and decorations. Believing many of the commentators on the ‘gentle piscatorial art’ have fallen into error since ‘good old Izaak’ first published his Complete Angler, Bailey, a famous angler of his day, sets out the lessons of ‘upwards of twenty years practical experience as an Angler’ in search of pike, perch, trout, gudgeon, chub, carp, roach, etc. Salmon, however, proved too aristocratic a fish, and Bailey, with no experience with the ‘king’, refers the reader to an article in Bell’s Life. Advertisement for ‘William Bailey, Fishing Tackle Maker, Broad Marsh, Nottingham’ and ‘Gentlemen instructed in the art of angling’ on the last page. “An excellent practical treatise by the best Nottingham angler of his day” (Westwood, 20). Tips worn, top and tail of spine worn, outside hinge repaired, some flaked gilt. A… Read more

Description:
New-York: Collins, 1811. First edition (vi, 112 pp.), illustrated. 12mo., half leather and marbled paper over boards, gilt title and decoration to spine, sprinkled edges. Binding rubbed, tips worn, previous owner’s name/date on ffep. Samuel Bard (1742- 1821), perhaps best known for his work on midwifery, was assistant surgeon to George Washington and later helped found the faculty of medicine at Columbia University (where a chair of medicine is named in his honour). This little book, intended to improve livestock farming in the northeast by the introduction of merino sheep, gives details of British and Scandinavian practises as well as suggestions arising from Bard’s own experience at his Hyde Park farm. Bard was far from alone in championing the merino sheep-- see, for example, Robert L. Livingston’s Essay on Sheep (New-York, 1809). Indeed it would appear there was something of a ‘merino sheep craze’ which, although much tamer than tulip madness, attracted many agriculture… Read more

Hartford, J. B. Burr, 1869. First edition (xxiv, 780), thirty-two full-page illustrations in B & W. The first appearance of Barnum’s effusions which persisted in one edition or another for twenty years. Tall octavo, in leather (rebacked in Japanese paper), new endpapers, gilt titles to spine. Barnum’s account of a gaudy life, one in which opportunism and philanthropy were prepared in the same dish, suggests Mark Twain did not have to invent tall tales-- they were being lived all around. Some off-setting from the engravings, absent frontispiece, occasional foxing, but a perfectly respectable copy

London: Arthur Hall, Virtue, 1850. Second edition (vii, 218, adverts), illustrated with 35 engraved b&w plates by Bartlett and 17 woodcuts in the text, including a map of the region and a panorama of Alexandria. Small folio (18cm x 26cm) in fancy publisher’s cloth with fine gilt decoration and titles on an Egyptian theme. Light foxing restricted for the most part to margins. Ever since Napoleon’s Egyptian adventure (He abandoned an army there), European imaginations were drawn to Egyptian mysteries and were fed by publications such as this by Bartlett which, he says, ‘were drawn upon the spot, many with the camera lucida [a device which reflected a mirrored image onto paper]... displaying the principal monuments’, the ruins at Alexandria and Thebes, and especially scenes along the river Nile. An attractive copy all around.

Description:
Philadelphia: printed for the Author by Way & Groff, 1799. First edition (xviii, 24). Folio, in modern green cloth and marbled paper, gilt title to spine. Right margin of title page moderately toned, a few spots in the texts, a single perforated library stamp at the top corner of the first page of the Introduction. Benjamin Smith Barton, M.D., (1766- 1815) was professor variously of materia medica, natural history, and botany at the University of Pennsylvania and a member of the Linnaeen Society, the American Philosophical Society, and the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, among others. Barton’s principal work is Elements of Botany (1804), the first botany text published in the U.S. His wide ranging interests in natural history led him to publish a number of monographs and studies, e.g., ‘The Fascinating Quality Ascribed to the Rattlesnake’ (1796) and ‘New Views of the Origins of Tribes in the United States’ (1797). Barton acted as advisor on botanical collections… Read more

Description:
Philadelphia: M. Carey, 1818. First edition (Two volumes; [4], 251 pp.; 234 pp. with index). William Barton (1786- 1856), a navy surgeon and professor of botany at the University of Pennsylvania, collected, as he said, all but perhaps twenty specimens himself and describes them in English for “the tyro”. The nephew of Benjamin Smith Barton, who published the first botany textbook in the U.S. and who preceded him as professor of botany (among other subjects) at the University, William Barton is best known for his Flora of North America (1821-23), illustrated with great skill by his wife, and Vegetable Materia Medica of the United States (1817-19). Compendium Florae Philadelphicae is Barton’s first important publication, comparable in ambition to the work of William Curtis, who in 1777 with the support of Lord Bute published the first (and only) part of his Flora Londinensis which sought to describe the plants to be found within a ten-mile radius of the centre of London.

As Beadle says, “The design of the book is to furnish the Canadian cultivator with a reliable guide... the result of many years of experience and careful observation. Many hundreds of varieties...have been actually grown by the writer, and their value for cultivation in our climate thoroughly... tested.” “Hitherto there has been no work devoted to these subjects which has been written by a Canadian, embodying his… Read more

Description:

Paris, 1757. Sheet (33cm x 24cm, irreg.), image (19cm x 30).  Engraving depicts the region of the lower St. Lawrence from just west of Quebec City, past Tadoussac, on out to the Gulf  as far as the western end of Anticosti Island. Cartouche with legend in rococco frame, a good dark impression locating the settlements and showing details of the tributaries of the lower valley. Likely from Prevost’s multi-volume Histoire Generale des Voyages (1746- 1757) for which Bellin prepared maps as Ingr. de la Marine’. Mildly age-toned, a single pin hole on a crease, reduced right margin. Quite a good impression on good 18th century paper with chains and wire, representative of Bellin’s accurate, detailed work.

Newcastle: for the author, 1809.  Third edition, in two parts bound as one volume, Land Birds and Water Birds (xxxviii, 346; xxii, 400). Nearly three hundred wood engravings of birds plus many head and tail pieces, etc., in the inimitable Bewick style. Octavo (21 cm) in half leather over marbled paper, gilt titles and decorations to spine; generous margins framing the text and illustrations. Land Birds, first published in 1797, was seven years in the making and Water Birds, published in 1804, five (All the while, of course, Bewick carried on the work of his busy design and engraving business). The result, taken together with his Quadrupeds, as Jenny Uglow says in her admirable biography Nature’s Engraver (Faber 2006), ‘brought nature to life, and revived the nearly forgotten art of wood engraving’ (306). Thomas Bewick (1753- 1828), a contemporary of William Blake, confined his work to more ordinary subjects than those addressed by that mystic poet- engraver.

Newcastle-upon Tyne: Thomas Bewick et al., 1790. First edition (index, viii, 456) with numerous wood engravings by Bewick. Tall octavo, rebacked in new three-quarter leather over original polished calf; new silver gilt titles on new label; new endpapers; five pages with repaired tears (archival tape). Thomas Bewick (1753- 1828), a contemporary of William Blake, confined his work to more ordinary subjects than those addressed by that mystic poet- engraver. The General History of Quadrupeds (1790) and the History of British Birds (1797) are Bewick’s most important works, each of which was issued in a number of editions in his lifetime. A complete description of his work as an engraver, however, comprises two entire volumes (1867- 68). Bewick’s Memoir, published by a daughter in 1862, describes ‘an early impulse to draw [which] constantly filled the margins of his schoolbooks’. To his ‘rustic neighbours [he] became an eminent painter, and the walls of their houses were… Read more

London: MacMillan, 1876. First edition (pp. frontis, viii, 516, index). Quarto (23 cm) in green cloth, gilt titles to spine, t.e.g. Illustrated by eighteen hand-coloured lithographic plates of birds and mammals by J. G. Keulemans and ten uncoloured lithographs of reptiles and amphibians by G. H. Ford, double-page colour map of Persia ‘divided into zoological provinces’. This copy absent three Keulemans plates. Additional ms. technical ornithological notes with additions and corrections throughout Aves section. Blanford, whose other works include similar reports on regions of Mesopotamia and India, was greatly assisted by a Major St. John who evidently had himself explored and collected widely in eastern Persia and who accompanied Blantford on the 1200 mile expedition from Ankora to Shiraz. (Oddly, while St. John’s contributions are noted in the text, I can find but one reference to him as anything other than ‘Major St. John’ and that is in a footnote signed ‘O. St. John’.
