        Group of Papers of John Rowe Parker, of Boston, Massachusetts, early American music editor and instrument dealer, publisher of the "Euterpeiad, or Musical Intelligencer and Ladies Gazette" - the first American musical periodical, 1803-1823

      - 27 items, 39 manuscript pp., dated 6 May 1803 to 18 June 1823. The papers in this collection document the business of John Rowe Parker, early American musical tastemaker. The collection is useful for scholars and researchers of early American music due to the detailed invoices it contains, which list nearly 700 pieces of music by title. As most pre 1823 sheet music is not dated, the dated invoices in this collection provide a valuable record of the titles that were available at a given time and provide clues to their date of publication. Description of Collection 1. Itemized invoice for funeral services provided by Geo. Ellison, signed by Ellison, for the funeral of Catherine Brigden Parker, the first wife of John Rowe Parker, dated 6 May 1803. 2. "To Greenland & Norris," itemized invoice for books and supplies, signed by Greenland, 1 pp., dated 20 July 1803. 3. "To John & Adam Geib," New York, New York, itemized invoice for musical instruments & related goods, 2 pp., dated 23 Aug 1817. 4. Letter of John Rowe Parker to James H. Swindells of Richmond, Virginia, 1 pp., dated 30 March 1818, concerns supplying music instruments and books, including instructions about setting up an organ. 5. "To Charles Tracy," itemized invoice for musical instruments and shipping charges, dated 4 May 1818. 6. Group of 21 itemized invoices for sheet music purchased by John Rowe Parker from the following publishers: George E. Blake, 6 invoices, dated 28 January 1817 to 11 July 1820; A. Bacon, 1 invoice, dated 17 August 1817; William DuBois, 4 invoices, dated 20 August 1817 to 26 May 1818; Joseph Wilson, 3 invoices, dated 22 August 1817 to 3 September 1817, one undated; George Willig, 2 invoices, one dated 20 October 1818, the other undated; Edward Riley, 2 invoices, one dated 20 October 1818, other undated; and Benjamin Carr, 3 invoices, dated 20 September 1820 to 6 October 1821, one undated. 7. Unsigned letter, 3 pp., dated 18 June 1823, written to unknown person (possibly John Rowe Parker), posted from Augusta, presumably Georgia. Mentions that Thomas Jordan & Company, were to be the general agents for John Rowe Parker's "The Euterpeiad" publication, and were to help collect subscriptions. John Rowe Parker (1777-1844) John Rowe Parker is seen today as an early American champion of the art of music. While he was an amateur in the profession, he played an important role in disseminating music and musical knowledge throughout the country. As proprietor of the well-stocked Franklin Music Warehouse in Boston from 1817 to 1823, he furnished New England with the latest musical paraphernalia from Europe. His literary contribution was far more reaching, as his bimonthly column in the Euterpeiad consisted largely of reviews of local musical events. The Euterpeiad was distributed from Montreal, Canada, to Augusta, Georgia. Despite its relatively brief lifespan, The Euterpeiad exerted a considerable influence on the development of music in America, and in the process provided posterity with an invaluable cache of facts, records, and philosophies pertaining to a period that is otherwise poorly documented." John Rowe Parker was born 24 October 1777. He was the eldest of thirteen children born to the Rev. Samuel Parker (1744-1804), rector of Trinity Church in Boston, Massachusetts, and his wife Ann (d.1844). At the time of the American Revolution, the Rev. Parker was the only Episcopal clergyman in New England to side with the Americans and remain at his post. The Rev. Parker's father was a Superior Court Judge. Matthew S. Parker (1780-1865), brother of John Rowe Parker, was the first secretary of Boston's Handel and Haydn Society and the president of Oriental Bank in the 1830s. Another brother, Richard Green Parker (1798-1869), was a noted educator and author. John Rowe Parker was named for an admiring parishioner of his father, a prominent Boston merchant, John Rowe (1715-177

        De l'opéra en l'an XII (.).

      - Paris, De l'Imprimerie de Ballard, an XII - 1803. In-4, demi-veau tabac à coins, dos janséniste à 4 nerfs (rel. fin XIXe), (1) f. bl., (4) p. de titre et "avant-propos", 94 p., (1) f. bl. Edition originale et unique. Gouffre financier, doté d’un personnel dont Napoléon affirmait qu’il était composé des 500 employés les plus indisciplinés de France, l’Opéra de Paris constitua, sous le Consulat et l’Empire, un problème ingérable pour ses différents directeurs comme pour le gouvernement. D’abord agent comptable de l’Opéra à partir de 1802, Bonet de Treiches en devint directeur de 1803 à 1807. Il soumet dans ce mémoire une analyse financière, sociale et artistique très complète "des causes et vices qui s’opposent à la marche et aux progrès de ce grand établissement". Bilan financier illustré de nombreuses données et tableaux chiffrés - Analyse des dysfonctionnements: insubordination des artistes, problème de personnel - Les activités artistiques: répertoire, chant, danse, pantomime - Le fonctionnement: orchestre, décorations, machines, costumes, etc. L’auteur soumet, en fin, un plan de réformes détaillées dont un projet pour la construction d’une nouvelle salle d’opéra à Paris. Conventionnel modéré pendant la Révolution, Bonet de Treiches (1757-1828) siégea au Conseil des Cinq-Cents, puis fut nommé commissaire du Gouvernement du Théâtre de la République et des Arts avant de rentrer en fonction à l’Opéra de Paris. (Cf. Jean Gourret, 'Ces hommes qui ont fait l'Opéra', Albatros, 1984, p. 102 et s.). (Fétis, ‘Biographie universelle des musiciens’, II, 19. Fétis, ‘Catalogue’, n° 3850. Tourneux, 18276). Rare. Un unique exemplaire recensé dans les bibliothèques françaises (CCFr): celui de la BnF. Ex-libris gravé et armorié de la bibliothèque d'Antoine Charreyre, médecin à Yssingeaux. Très bon exemplaire, bien relié, entièrement non rogné. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        La Republique Italienne Divisee en Ses Departements D'Olona, et D'Agona.

      Venezia 1803 - Questa rarissima carta appartiene ad progetto di atlante, mai portato a compimento, della così denominata Società Calcografia, una semplice operazione commerciale tra i due editori leader del mercato veneto del XVIII secolo, Antonio Zatta e Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. Il termine Società Calcografica viene da noi dedotto dalla carta del mondo presente in questa raccolta, che nel cartiglio in basso reca l’iscrizione in lingua francese "à Venise Chez la Societè Chalcographique 1799". Come detto il progetto non venne mai portato a compimento; nessun atlante contenente queste mappe, con indice e frontespizio, è infatti noto alle bibliografie. E’ probabile pertanto che le carte venissero vendute singolarmente o in piccole raccolte personalizzate. Le mappe inserite nella raccolta derivano in parte da lastre di Paolo e Francesco Santini, usate da Remondini nel "Atlas Universelle" del 1782/4 ed in parte da lastre edite da Antonio Zatta per il "Nuovo Atlante" pubblicato nel 1796. Le mappe del Santini sono abilmente arricchite, tramite un sistema di piccole lastre mascherate che sono chiaramente visibili sulle mappe per il segno calcografico, da grandi cartigli nel classico stile dello Zatta, incisi dai suoi stretti collaboratori Pasquali, Zuliani e Pitteri. I cartigli spesso contengono le descrizioni storiche, e le mappe furono probabilmente realizzate per illustrare i notevoli cambiamenti geografici che subì la penisola durante il periodo napoleonico. Datate tra il 1795 ed il 1805 sono principalmente dedicate ad illustrare la penisola, sebbene esistano carte di molte regioni europee e dei continenti. La recente bibliografia Terre di Langobardia ne descrive alcune raffiguranti la Repubblica Cisalpina, descrivendole come parte del "Atlas très Nouveau" del solo Remondini, edito a partire dal 1800. La nostra opinione è che i due editori collaborarono in questo progetto almeno fino alla morte di Antonio Zatta (1804), e che il progetto di un atlante completo non fu mai portato a termine anche per la morte di Giuseppe Antonio Remondini (1811). Personalmente sono a conoscenza di 61 carte di questo progetto. Incisione in rame, finemente colorata da mano coeva, in ottimo stato di conservazione. This very rare map belongs to a never finished project for the atlas of the so called Società Calcografia, a simple commercial trade realized by the two main Venetian publishers of the XVIII century, Antonio Zatta and Giuseppe Antonio Remondini. The term Società Calcografica has been deduced from the map of the world, which is part of the collection and bears in the lower cartouche the French writing "à Venise Chez la Societè Chalcographique 1799". As already stated, the project was never finished for no atlas containing these maps has ever been listed in any bibliography. Very likely, then, the maps have been sold individually, or maybe as part of smaller, custom collections. The maps of the collection derive from Paolo and Francesco Santini’s plates, used by Remondini in his 1782/4 "Atlas Universelle", and from the plates of Antonio Zatta’s "Nuovo Atlante", published in 1796. Santini’s maps have been beautifully enriched, using the system of small, masked plates which can be perceived through the platemarks on the paper, with great cartouches according to the classical style of Zatta and have been probably engraved by the members of his staff, Pasquali, Zuliani and Pitteri. The cartouches bear very often historical descriptions and maybe the maps have been realized to depict the great geographic changes of the peninsula during the Napoleonic period. The modern bibliography Terre di Langobardia describes some of the maps depicting the Repubblica Cisalpina, presenting them as part of Remondini’s "Atlas très Nouveau", which was printed starting from 1800. In our opinion, the two publishers worked together to the realization of the project until Antonio Zatta died (1804), and the complete atlas was never finished because Giuseppe Antonio Remondini also died

He was the eldest of thirteen children born to the Rev. Samuel Parker (1744-1804), rector of Trinity Church in Boston, Massachusetts, and his wife Ann (d.1844). At the time of the American Revolution, the Rev. Parker was the only Episcopal clergyman in New England to side with the Americans and remain at his post. The Rev.

Another brother, Richard Green Parker (1798-1869), was a noted educator and author. John Rowe Parker was named for an admiring parishioner of his father, a prominent Boston merchant, John Rowe (1715-1779). Since John Rowe was childless, he left a legacy to the Rev. Parker as well as his namesake.He was a merchant, music dealer, and publisher active in Boston. He is said to have made two trips to England, one in 1802 with his first wife Catherine Brigden, the other in 1815. After his return from England in 1803, his wife Catherine died. The couple had no children having only been married briefly. An extensive invoice of George Ellison for her funeral services is listed in this collection. After Catherine's death, Parker married, a second time, a year later to Mary Hamilton, also of Boston. The couple had three children: Samuel, Jonathan, and Mary.Parker's first business venture was as a general merchant, handling quilts, counterpanes, carpeting, knives, forks, carvers, coffee pots, candlesticks, snuffers, etc. By 1806, his business became "Parker and Poor," with Parker located in Boston, and Poor located in Scotland. Poor relocated to Baltimore and the business dissolved, with both men forming other companies, Parker remaining in Boston, Poor relocated to Baltimore.Parker's second wife died about the year 1812. In 1823, he is found in New London, Connecticut, where he had married a third time, to Jane Parker, the daughter of a leading family that was interrelated to the Winthrops. By 1814 Parker is found importing pianos. He opened a music store, Franklin Music Warehouse, in Boston in 1817 where he sold pianos, organs, other musical instruments, sheet music and related merchandise.While not a musician himself, Parker was active in the promotion of music in the United States in the early nineteenth-century. From April 1820 until March 1823, he was editor and publisher of the "Euterpeiad, or Musical Intelligencer and Ladies Gazette" - the first American musical periodical. The publication quickly became one of the major early American music periodicals. Working out of the Music Warehouse near Faneuil Hall, he published the periodical, sold pianos, organs and other musical instruments by catalog, and became the first large distributor of "fashionable" (secular) American music. The Euterpiad ceased publication in 1823, and Parker left the music business to become an importer in 1824. After the Euterpeiad ceased publication, Parker collected articles from the Euterpeiad in a book, entitled: A Musical Biography: or Sketches of the Lives and Writings of Eminent Musical Characters, published in 1824. This volume ranks as the first biographical musical dictionary published in the United States. The book furnished American readers with biographical sketches of thirty-four foreign and native musicians, as well as eight brief essays on various musical topics.Later in life, Parker wrote four books on a proposed nation-wide communication system of semaphoric signals for marine vessels. It is not a system that he founded, but rather helped refine. John Rowe Parker died on 29 December 1844, a little more than a week before his mother, Agnes Parker died.The University of Pennsylvania holds an extensive collection of letters written to Parker, used by scholars as an "index to early 19th Century American musical taste." Another collection of Parker material is located at the University of Rochester's Sibley Music Library.Musicians, publishers, and musical instrument makers represented in this collection include George E. Blake, George Willig, A. Bacon, Benjamin Carr, Edward Riley, William DuBois, Joseph Willson, J.A. and W. Geib, James H. Swindells. References:John Rowe Parker and a Musical Biography, by John A.

(Ch. Samblanx) 1er tirage et édition originale de la plus grande rareté de ces vers apocryphes attribuées à Clotilde de Surville, poétesse française morte en 1498, mais dont on a toujours soupçonné Joseph-Etienne de Surville (1755-1798) d'être le véritable auteur. L'édition présente en tête une longue préface, plus de 120 pages, dans laquelle Vanderbourg fait l'historique des manuscrits et tente de prévenir les soupçons que les lecteurs pouvaient avoir sur l'identité de l'auteur. Malgré cela de nombreuses voix s'élevèrent dès la parution du recueil pour dénoncer une supercherie littéraire, l'ouvrage eut toutefois un grand succès. Bel exemplaire, reliure en bel état, coiffes, coins et mors légèrement frottés; intérieur frais, un léger report de la dentelle des contre-plats sur les pages de garde sans incidence.

        Group of Papers of John Rowe Parker, of Boston, Massachusetts, early American music editor and instrument dealer, publisher of the "Euterpeiad, or Musical Intelligencer and Ladies Gazette" - the first American musical periodical, 1803-1823

      1803. 27 items, 39 manuscript pp., dated 6 May 1803 to 18 June 1823.The papers in this collection document the business of John Rowe Parker, early American musical tastemaker. The collection is useful for scholars and researchers of early American music due to the detailed invoices it contains, which list nearly 700 pieces of music by title. As most pre 1823 sheet music is not dated, the dated invoices in this collection provide a valuable record of the titles that were available at a given time and provide clues to their date of publication.Description of Collection1. Itemized invoice for funeral services provided by Geo. Ellison, signed by Ellison, for the funeral of Catherine Brigden Parker, the first wife of John Rowe Parker, dated 6 May 1803.2. "To Greenland & Norris," itemized invoice for books and supplies, signed by Greenland, 1 pp., dated 20 July 1803.3. "To John & Adam Geib," New York, New York, itemized invoice for musical instruments & related goods, 2 pp., dated 23 Aug 1817.4. Letter of John Rowe Parker to James H. Swindells of Richmond, Virginia, 1 pp., dated 30 March 1818, concerns supplying music instruments and books, including instructions about setting up an organ.5. "To Charles Tracy," itemized invoice for musical instruments and shipping charges, dated 4 May 1818.6. Group of 21 itemized invoices for sheet music purchased by John Rowe Parker from the following publishers: George E. Blake, 6 invoices, dated 28 January 1817 to 11 July 1820; A. Bacon, 1 invoice, dated 17 August 1817; William DuBois, 4 invoices, dated 20 August 1817 to 26 May 1818; Joseph Wilson, 3 invoices, dated 22 August 1817 to 3 September 1817, one undated; George Willig, 2 invoices, one dated 20 October 1818, the other undated; Edward Riley, 2 invoices, one dated 20 October 1818, other undated; and Benjamin Carr, 3 invoices, dated 20 September 1820 to 6 October 1821, one undated.7. Unsigned letter, 3 pp., dated 18 June 1823, written to unknown person (possibly John Rowe Parker), posted from Augusta, presumably Georgia. Mentions that Thomas Jordan & Company, were to be the general agents for John Rowe Parker's "The Euterpeiad" publication, and were to help collect subscriptions.John Rowe Parker (1777-1844)John Rowe Parker is seen today as an early American champion of the art of music. While he was an amateur in the profession, he played an important role in disseminating music and musical knowledge throughout the country. As proprietor of the well-stocked Franklin Music Warehouse in Boston from 1817 to 1823, he furnished New England with the latest musical paraphernalia from Europe. His literary contribution was far more reaching, as his bimonthly column in the Euterpeiad consisted largely of reviews of local musical events. The Euterpeiad was distributed from Montreal, Canada, to Augusta, Georgia. Despite its relatively brief lifespan, The Euterpeiad exerted a considerable influence on the development of music in America, and in the process provided posterity with an invaluable cache of facts, records, and philosophies pertaining to a period that is otherwise poorly documented."John Rowe Parker was born 24 October 1777. He was the eldest of thirteen children born to the Rev. Samuel Parker (1744-1804), rector of Trinity Church in Boston, Massachusetts, and his wife Ann (d.1844). At the time of the American Revolution, the Rev. Parker was the only Episcopal clergyman in New England to side with the Americans and remain at his post. The Rev. Parker's father was a Superior Court Judge. Matthew S. Parker (1780-1865), brother of John Rowe Parker, was the first secretary of Boston's Handel and Haydn Society and the president of Oriental Bank in the 1830s. Another brother, Richard Green Parker (1798-1869), was a noted educator and author. John Rowe Parker was named for an admiring parishioner of his father, a prominent Boston merchant, John Rowe (1715-1779). Since John Rowe was childless, he left a legacy to the Rev. Parker as well as his namesake.He was a merchant, music dealer, and publisher active in Boston. He is said to have made two trips to England, one in 1802 with his first wife Catherine Brigden, the other in 1815. After his return from England in 1803, his wife Catherine died. The couple had no children having only been married briefly. An extensive invoice of George Ellison for her funeral services is listed in this collection. After Catherine's death, Parker married, a second time, a year later to Mary Hamilton, also of Boston. The couple had three children: Samuel, Jonathan, and Mary.Parker's first business venture was as a general merchant, handling quilts, counterpanes, carpeting, knives, forks, carvers, coffee pots, candlesticks, snuffers, etc. By 1806, his business became "Parker and Poor," with Parker located in Boston, and Poor located in Scotland. Poor relocated to Baltimore and the business dissolved, with both men forming other companies, Parker remaining in Boston, Poor relocated to Baltimore.Parker's second wife died about the year 1812. In 1823, he is found in New London, Connecticut, where he had married a third time, to Jane Parker, the daughter of a leading family that was interrelated to the Winthrops. By 1814 Parker is found importing pianos. He opened a music store, Franklin Music Warehouse, in Boston in 1817 where he sold pianos, organs, other musical instruments, sheet music and related merchandise.While not a musician himself, Parker was active in the promotion of music in the United States in the early nineteenth-century. From April 1820 until March 1823, he was editor and publisher of the "Euterpeiad, or Musical Intelligencer and Ladies Gazette" - the first American musical periodical. The publication quickly became one of the major early American music periodicals. Working out of the Music Warehouse near Faneuil Hall, he published the periodical, sold pianos, organs and other musical instruments by catalog, and became the first large distributor of "fashionable" (secular) American music. The Euterpiad ceased publication in 1823, and Parker left the music business to become an importer in 1824. After the Euterpeiad ceased publication, Parker collected articles from the Euterpeiad in a book, entitled: A Musical Biography: or Sketches of the Lives and Writings of Eminent Musical Characters, published in 1824. This volume ranks as the first biographical musical dictionary published in the United States. The book furnished American readers with biographical sketches of thirty-four foreign and native musicians, as well as eight brief essays on various musical topics.Later in life, Parker wrote four books on a proposed nation-wide communication system of semaphoric signals for marine vessels. It is not a system that he founded, but rather helped refine. John Rowe Parker died on 29 December 1844, a little more than a week before his mother, Agnes Parker died.The University of Pennsylvania holds an extensive collection of letters written to Parker, used by scholars as an "index to early 19th Century American musical taste." Another collection of Parker material is located at the University of Rochester's Sibley Music Library.Musicians, publishers, and musical instrument makers represented in this collection include George E. Blake, George Willig, A. Bacon, Benjamin Carr, Edward Riley, William DuBois, Joseph Willson, J.A. and W. Geib, James H. Swindells.References:John Rowe Parker and a Musical Biography, by John A.

Die ersten Liebigbilder erschienen um 1875 in Paris, als die Liebig Extract dort ein eigenes Werbebüro einrichtete. Ihre direkten Vorläufer sind sogenannte Stuhlbilder (ab 1874), kleine bunt bedruckte Quittungskärtchen mit dezentem Werbeaufdruck, die man erhielt, wenn man in den Pariser Parks einen gepachteten Stuhl oder eine Bank benutzte. Die frühesten Liebigbilder wurden zwar als Serien zu 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12 und in einem Fall zu 24 Bildern gedruckt, aber zumeist einzeln abgegeben.

        I-FUKYU IKE NO TAIGA GAFU

      1803. [EHON] I-Fukyu & Ike no Taiga. I-FUKYU IKE NO TAIGA GAFU. Kyoto & Edo: Maruya Gempachiro & Suharaya Mohei. Kyowa 3 [1803]. 27.2 x 18.2 cm. Blue paper covers, string-bound Japanese-style, fukuro-toji. Original printed paper title labels. Follows the copy at Mitchell 307, save that the ordering of the prefatory and final materials seems to follow the order of the copy found at Odin 143. Worn covers and abraded title labels, some repaired, mostly marginal, worming inside. Still a more than serviceable copy of this lovely book. The famous Nanga artist Ike no Taiga has a volume to himself, accompanying the volume dedicated to the Chinese artist I-Fukyu. To my eye, Taiga's wonderful whimsy and pictorial variety carry the day. Printed in black and white throughout. The book deserves a wider audience than it has received to date.

In 18th century America, as it was the age of reason and Enlightenment, the colonists needed the justification or rationalization of their disagreement and resultant actions with England, citing their immutable rights as Englishmen and quoting the basic English institutions. As the "philosopher of the Enlightenment" Locke's theories and writings were seized upon by the colonists, especially with Locke's "doctrine of natural rights," his theories on "life, liberty and property," religious toleration and proper representation in government. His writings gave the colonist a firm foundation upon which to base many of their statements. To Locke goes much of the credit for many of the ideas forming the Virginia Declaration of Rights drafted by George Mason. Many of the other states used that constitution as a basis for their own. Locke's advocacy of a "laissez faire" economic policy was shared by Jefferson who agreed with the idea that the "government is best which governs least" (Cohen "American Thought" p. 132). The conclusion reached in the "Essay" "that though knowledge must necessarily fall short of complete comprehension, it can at least be 'sufficient'; enough to convince us that we are not at the mercy of pure chance, and can of some extent control our own destiny" summarizes American intent and beliefs.

        Versuche über das Sonnenlicht" in Annalen der Physik und Chemie 12, 1803, pp. 409-416

      Halle: Rengerschen Buchhandlung10, 1803 FIRST EDITION, FULL VOLUME WITH ORIGINAL FRONT WRAP BOUND IN, OF THE FIRST FULLY DEVELOPED PAPER DESCRIBING RITTER'S DISCOVERY OF ULTRAVIOLET RADIATION. Ritter had 'announced' the discovery in a half page letter in the 1802 Annalen. In discovering ultraviolet light, or light without heat, Ritter had discovered an analog to Herschel's infrared light, or heat without light (Kittler, Optical Media, 123). Ultraviolet radiation is in the part of the electromagnetic spectrum where wavelengths are shorter than that of visible light but longer than X-rays, specifically, it is composed of three types of rays and has a wavelength from 10nm to 400 nm (Wikipedia). In 1800, William Herschel discovered infrared light. To test the temperatures of differently colored light, Herschel channeled sunlight through a prism. The prism split the colors into a rainbow whose colors Herschel had directed to each fall on a different thermometers. The experiment made clear that the highest temperatures occurred where the light did not appear to shine at all - just beyond the red line of the rainbow. Herschel's experiment demonstrated the first detection of a form of light beyond the visible, 'infrared'. Herschel's discovery of 'infrared' light strongly indicated that Newton's chromatic spectrum was only a small part of a much larger phenomenon. Johann Wilhelm Ritter was a German physicist, chemist, and philosopher. Ritter was particularly engaged by Herschel's discovery and began to wonder if he could detect invisible light at the other end of the spectrum and beyond the violet or blue lines of the rainbow. Ritter put it more methodically: "if the solar spectrum is brightest in the middle but warmest at its end, then why should cold light not also exist beyond the other end of the visible spectrum" (ibid). While studying the issue, Ritter speculated that in order to answer his question, he needed "a chemical reagent that has its strongest effect beyond the violet in the same way that our thermometer has its strongest effect beyond the red" (ibid). While experimenting with silver chloride as a chemical reagent, Ritter noted that it turned black when exposed to light. Ritter had heard that blue light caused a greater reaction in silver chloride than red light did, so he decided to measure the rate at which silver chloride reacted to the different colors of light. "He directed sunlight through a glass prism to create a spectrum and then placed silver chloride in each color of the spectrum and found that it showed little change in the red part of the spectrum, but darkened toward the violet end of the spectrum. "Ritter then decided to place silver chloride in the area just beyond the violet end of the spectrum, in a region where no sunlight was visible. To his amazement, this region showed the most intense reaction of all. This showed for the first time that an invisible form of light existed beyond the violet end of the visible spectrum. This new type of light, which Ritter called Chemical Rays, later became known as ultraviolet light or ultraviolet radiation (the word ultra means beyond) (Rubin, Newton, Herschel and Ritter, The Discovery of the Spectrum of Light). CONDITION & DETAILS: Halle: Rengerschen Buchhandlung. 8vo. (7.5 x 5 inches; 188 x 125mm). Full volume. Complete. Original front wraps and contents pages for each issue are bound in (there is a small tear to the contents page of one of the front wraps). [24], 747, [4]. 5 fold-out plates.

        Delphine. Aus dem Französischen übersetzt. 5 Teile in 2 Bänden. Pappbde d. Z. (berieben) mit Rückenschild und etwas Rückenvergoldung.

      Berlin, Himburg, 1803. - Erste deutsche Ausgabe des autobiographischen Schlüsselromans, ihr wichtigstes Werk, das ihren literarischen Ruhm begründete, ". wohl eines der ersten literarischen Zeugnisse der Ende des 18. Jh.s einsetzenden Emanzipation der Frau, . vielleicht das persönlichste Werk der Madame de Stael, dessen Titelheldin, ähnlich der späteren Corinne, ein idealisiertes Selbstbildnis darstellt. Innerhalb der 'Bekenntnis'-Literatur gilt dieser Briefroman, dessen Stil beseelter Enthusiasmus und epigrammatische Brillianz kennzeichnen, als Bindeglied zwischen Rousseau und George Sand" (KNLL). Von den Zeitgenossen als avantgardistisch, ja als Manifest einer liberalen Bewegung und Kritik an der napoleonischen Herrschaft empfunden, war der Roman bei der Obrigkeit seiner gesellschaftskritischen Haltung wegen unerwünscht und trug zur Verbannung seiner Verfasserin (1766-1817) aus Paris bei. – Titel mit zeitgenöss. handschriftl. Besitzeintrag. – Goed. VII 679, 310, 4 und Fromm 24686 kennen nur die Berliner Ausgabe des Jahres 1804 und nennen Nikolaus Peter Stampeel als Übersetzer. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
