Description:
London: Henry Colburn, 1827. New [third] edition (adverts, vii, 136). Six colour plates, one folding as frontispiece. Slim octavo, modern brown half cloth and green paper-covered boards with matching endpapers; gilt titles to spine. While Jackson (whose name is sometimes spelt ‘Jacson’-- as in Shteir, ODNB, where her name is given as ‘Maria Elizabetha Jacson’) does not appear on the title page as the author, which simply gives us ‘the authoress’, she is named on the final page of the book. The Manual, Jackson’s most successful book, was preceded by Botanical Dialogues (1797), evidently intended as an introduction to botany suitable for schools, Botanical Lectures (1804), a re-worked version of Dialogues, which had proved ‘too learned for the juvenile market’. Jackson (1754- 1842) began writing in the first place for the best of reasons: she needed the money. Erasmus Darwin commended her first book and praised her for ‘so accurately explaining a… Read more

Description:
New-York: Wiley and Putnam, 1839. First edition, in two volumes (viii, [ix], 10-341; iv, 339). Original tan cloth, gilt titles to spine (lightly sunned), impressed decoration. According to the Dictionary of Canadian Biography, “In 1832 her Characteristics of Women, a discussion of Shakespeare’s heroines, made her name on the Continent and in America as well as in England. On a trip to Germany after its publication she was the centre of an admiring group which included Johann Ludwig Tieck and August Wilhelm von Schlegel, and she began a lifelong friendship with Ottilie von Goethe, the poet’s daughter-in-law.” Jameson is better known, in Canada anyway, as the author of this travel book Winter Studies and Summer Rambles (1838) which describes her short stay in winter at Toronto (which she despised) and her tour up through the Great Lakes during the subsequent summer (which delighted her), experiences which gave her much to exercise her wit and intelligence. Her principal later works were… Read more

Description:

London, 1754. Sheet (30cm x 43cm), image (23.5cm x 35.5cm). Late in 1754, subsequent to his defeat at Fort Necessity in the Ohio country by a combined force of French and Canadians, George Washington published at Williamsburg The Journal of Major George Washington which gave an account of his venture into the western lands at the head of elements of the Virginia regiment and which, by implication, served as a defense of his conduct of the campaign (He was, after all, just twenty-one or so and had been captured together with his entire force). A short while later, the Journal was published at London, accompanied by this map by the well-known English cartographer Thomas Jefferys. According to one commentator the ‘map is apparently an enlarged version of an earlier map engraved by John Gibson with the same title... published in the London Magazine, June 1754’ (See ‘Maps Relating to Virginia in the Virginia State Library’ in Bulletin of the Virginia State Library 7, Nos. 2 and 3 (1914): 33-263… Read more

Description:
Buenos Aries: for the authors, 1965-72. First edition, in two volumes and a Supplement (397, index; 446, index; 116, corrections, index). Maps and colour plates by J. D. Goodall plus b&w photographs. Large 8vo in black cloth, gilt titles to covers and spines; Supplement in stiff card, red titles. Johnson and colleagues produced this English language version of Las Aves de Chile (Johnson and Goodall, 1946- 57) which greatly expanded and re-organized the original Spanish text, the first really useful field study of the regions’ birds (other than Hellman’s technical study published in 1932). The expanded work includes information on breeding habits, migration patterns, habitat, and Chilean avian natural history generally. The work stems from the authors’ ‘amateur’ interest in birds of the country, an avocation which produced a substantial, useful work of ornithology-- but then Wilson and Audubon were ‘amateurs’. Volumes I and II signed by Johnson and by Goodall,… Read more

Description:

New York: Orange Judd, 1878. First edition (viii, 113, index, adverts). Small octavo (19cm) in original green publisher’s cloth with impressed and gilt decoration, fancy gilt titles to spine; illustrated with five engravings depicting a variety of indoor plant arragements in the loosely gothic fashion of the time for which the words ‘festooned’ and ‘embowered’ come to mind (and to Johnson’s pen).  Quite a complete account of
how to raise decorative houseplants (‘a new Eden’) and integrate them with interior design . Top and bottom of spine lightly abraded, uniformly age-toned as usual; a fine, bright copy. A scarce book, especially in this condition.

Description:
Paris: Herissant et Barrois, 1789. First edition (498 pp., appendix, index, errata). Octavo in full leather, gilt titles to spine, yellow washed edges. The first edition of the notable work of this botanist whose work, along with that of Linnaeus, formed the basis for the classification system of modern botany. His notion of ‘family’, for example, still informs modern botanical descriptions. Solid and tightly bound; hinges skilfully repaired, covers and tips worn; mild damp-staining to some early pages but still a good, clean text. An attractive copy of a (truly) seminal botanical study. Paris in 1789. What a time to publish!
