George Bentham : Autobiography 1800 - 1834, Bentham, George (edited by Marion Filipiuk)
10 Bentham, George (edited by Marion Filipiuk) George Bentham : Autobiography 1800 - 1834
University of Toronto Press 1997 0802007910 / 9780802007919 First Edition Cloth Very Good Very Slightly Worn 
Frontispiece portrait, large thick 8vo, pp xlviii, 597, a very good copy in a dustwrapper showing very faint signs of use. [In this autobiography of his early life (1800-1834), George Bentham, nephew of the great Utilitarian philosopher Jeremy Bentham, offers a lively depiction of the times, both in England and on the Continent, particularly of post-Napoleonic France, where he lived with his family for twelve years. Returning to London as his uncle Jeremy's assistant, he recounts his experiences in this role and his encounters with many of the leading, and the rising, figures of the day, such as Alexander von Humboldt and John Stuart Mill. An emerging figure himself in the field of botany - where he would prove to be one of the great taxonomists of the century - George Bentham worked creatively for the scientific societies he joined, activity that culminated in his becoming an unofficial ambassodor-at-large at scientific congresses in Europe in the 1830s, which he describes in enthusiastic detail. The text of the manuscript, preserved in the Archives of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, is published here for the first time, with an introduction providing historical context, explanatory notes, and indexes of plant names and of persons and works mentioned. A fascinating story in itself, this autobiography provides a new resource for Utilitarian studies and for historians of science.]

15 Bindman, David Hogarth and His Times: Serious Comedy
London The Trustees of the British Museum 1997 0714126144 / 9780714126142 Paperback Very Good 
Very well illustrated, quarto, pp 208, paperback. The contents extremely clean, the upper cover very slightly creased at the corners. [The exhibition guidebook isloosely inserted.]. {William Hogarth (1697-1764) is an artist whose popularity has never waned since his own day. His reputation has been based almost entirely on his prints, although he is now recognized as one of the great painters of the British school. This volume, published to mark the tercentenary of his birth, looks at the varied reactions to Hogarth's prints and the different identities imposed upon the artist over the centuries: witty satirist, stern moralist, libertine, aggressive self-promoter, detached observer, and man of the people.}

A Sense of Place - the life and work of Forrest Shreve, Bowers, Emily Jane
20 Bowers, Emily Jane A Sense of Place - the life and work of Forrest Shreve
Tucson The University of Arizona Press 1988 0816510725 / 9780816510726 First Edition Cloth Very Good Very Good 
Illustrated, small octavo, pp xii, 195, a very good copy in dustwrapper. [Forrest Shreve (1878-1950) was an internationally known plant ecologist who spent most of his career at the Carnegie Institution's Desert Laboratory in Tucson, Arizona. Shreve's contributions to the study of plant ecology laid the groundwork for modern studies and several of his works came to be regarded as classics by ecologists worldwide. This first full-length study of Shreve's life and work demonstrates that he was more than a desert ecologist. His early work in Maryland and Jamaica gave him a breadth of expertise matched by few of his ecological contemporaries, and his studies of desert plant demography, the physiological ecology of rain-forest plants, and vegetational gradients on southwestern mountain ranges anticipated by decades recent trends in ecology. Tracing Shreve's development from student to scientist, Bowers evokes the rigors and delights of fieldwork in the first half of this century and shows how Shreve's sense of place informed his scientific thought making him, in his own words, ""not an exile from some better place, but a man at home in an environment to which his life can be adjusted without physical or intellectual loss".]
