        Das Recht des Besitzes. Eine civilistische Abhandlung.

      Gießen, Heyer, 1806.. 2., vermehrte u. verbess. Aufl. 8vo. XXXVI, 560 S. Schöner zeitgenössischer Pappband mit Buntpapierbezug und geprägtem Rückenschild. Schöner Grünschnitt.. Seltene, zweite Auflage von Savigny's Meistermonographie! - In der zweiten Haelfte des Jahre 1802 begann F. C. von Savigny (1779-1861) in Marburg mit der Niederschrift dieser grossartigen Monographie. Nach nur sechs Monaten Ausarbeitungs und Korrektur der Druckfahnen wurde die Monographie bei Heyer in Giessen 1803 ediert. Mit der Edition der Monographie zum Besitz wurde der gerade einmal 24 Jahre alte Gelehrte mit einem Schlage "unter die Klassiker der Nation erhoben", so die Worte seines Schuelers Rudorff, der vier Jahre nach dem Tode des Meisters die siebte und letzte Auflage vorgenommen hat. Wenige Monate nach dem Erscheinen war die erste Auflage ausverkauft. Bereits 1806 erschien eine zweite verbesserte und vermehrte Auflage, ohne Vorwort. Zwischenzeitlich wurde Savigny zum Extraordinarius ernannt, was Savigny auch auf dem Titelblatt vermerkte: Professor der Rechte in Marburg. Die naechsten Auflagen folgen mit grossen Abstand. Die dritte erst 1818 in Berlin, Savigny war dort an der Humboldt-Unversitaet eine Koryphaee, hatte die historische Rechtsschule gegruendet und war in ganz Europa unter den Romanisten an die erste Stelle gerueckt. 1842 wurde Savigny Minister in Preussen und gab seine Lehrverpflichtungen auf. Die weiteren Auflagen der grossen Monographie: 1. Auflage Giessen 1803. (XXXII, 495 S.), 2. Auflage Giessen 1806, 3. Auflage 1818 (XXXX, 602 S.), 3. Auflage 1818 (XXXX, 602 S.), 4. Auflage 1822 (=XL, 539 S.), 5. Auflage 1827 (XXXXVIII, 624 S.) und 6. Auflage 1837 (LXXII, 688 S.), 7. postume, von Rudorff betreute Ausgabe Wien 1865 (VIII, 765 S.). First great writing by the then outside lecturer at Marburg University, which established the fame of Savigny throughout Europe in one fell swoop. The work embodied practically the perfection of German legal writing in the 19th century! A seminal piece of writing by the legal scholar who was only 24 years of age at the time of the first printing in 1803."

        The Warrener

      Published by Henry Morland, London 1806 - Colour printed mezzotint. In excellent condition apart from some skillfully mended tears. Image size: 17 3/4 x 23 1/2 inches. A lovely colour printed impression of Ward's idyllic print reflecting the English rural ideal, after a painting by George Morland. The term "warrener" refers to someone adept at catching rabbits in their warrens, which the man in this image has clearly done. Bringing home today's sustenance is one element of rural life that Morland worked so prodigiously to demonstrate to his more sophisticated audience. It was a world that grew increasingly foreign to the urbanized world as the 19th century approached. George Morland was one of the most successful genre painters of his time, creating, during his industrious career, some of England's most cherished paintings. At an early age Morland displayed his artistic genius, he learned to paint at three and exhibited his first work at the Royal Academy at the mere age of ten. He was a prodigious painter, producing more than 4000 paintings during the entirety of his career, and sometimes painting two or three works in a day. His beautiful idealistic scenes were a favorite source of inspiration for contemporary engravers, and as many as 250 separate engravings were done of his paintings during his lifetime. His brother-in-law, William Ward, engraved a great number of his paintings reproducing in print his endearing paintings of English country life. Ward's engravings after Morland are some of the most beautiful prints of the period; they combine fine technical skill and inspired artistic imagination to create enduring images that speak of the taste and beauty of the age.

        The Cyclopaedia Universal Dictionary of Arts, Sciences, and Literature

      Philadelphia: Samuel F. Bradford, and Murray, Fairman and Co.. Fair. 1806. Leather Bound. Complete set of 41 volumes, plus 6 illustrated volumes, published between 1806 and 1820 in half-volume jobs. This is the US edition of the British original published between 1802 and 1820. All books appear to be complete, except for some blank endpages of Illustrated Volume I. Covers are quite worn, and four front covers are detached (Volumes I, VI, X and Illustrated I) , and two more noticeably loose (Volume VIII and Illustrated II). Illustrated I has tapemarks from poor repair work, and the title page is torn. On most volumes, the title pastedowns on spine have fallen off. Three volumes have a little water damage, most extensively on Volume XV -- but even that is isolated mainly to cover and endpages. Volume XVI has child's drawings on one blank endsheet. On Illustrated III, the foldouts are worn on the edges, but still intact. Some foxing, but no mold. Occasional creases and waviness. Ex-owner plate in each volume ("The property of Phineas J. Miller, bequeathed to him by his uncle, Phineas Janney, and his aunt, Sarah S. Janney. 1852-3." ) All in all, despite the wear to the covers, the set is nicely preserved. ; Vol. 1/1/1947 .

        Le Magnifique, No. 9

      Paris 1806 - Jacques Barraband’s (1767-1809) engravings of birds are masterpieces of French ornithological illustration. This stunning portrait, Le Magnifique, No. 9, measures 21" x 13.5" and is in very good condition with light foxing and cropped margins. Expertly hand-colored, this bird had a rich blue underside, brown head, wings and tail-feathers and white plumage on its back. Precise lines define and detail each feather of this bird and the intricate patterning of the branch it is perched on. This engraving was done for the distinguished ornithologist Francois Levaillant, who commissioned the Barraband to illustrate his landmark works on exotic birds, including the lavish and striking “Histoire Naturelle des Oiseauz des Paradis et des Rolliers”. The collaboration of Levaillant and Barraband represented a departure from previous ornithological texts in its emphasis on beauty and luxury, with sumptuously colored and flawlessly rendered birds. Apart from their undoubted beauty, Barraband’s engravings display a scientific accuracy that few ornithological artists have matched since. The meticulous hand-colored engravings in Levaillants publications were unmatched for the delicate modulations of tone and color, fine lines and perfect draftsmanship, making them exceptional in their richness and tonal variation. Each feather is described by dozens of parallel lines, providing remarkable detail and naturalistically textured color. Some of the prints are embellished with touches of gold leaf on the feathers of the cheeks and shoulders of the birds, emphasizing the preciousness of the plates and reproducing the iridescence of the birds’ feathers. The present selection of images represents an opportunity to acquire spectacular engravings by a foremost 19th-century natural history artist.

      "Partly Printed Document Signed ?Th: Jefferson? as President and ?James Madison? as Secretary of State, 1 page, on vellum, 15.5? x 8.75?. Adequate contrast. Washington, January 22, 1806. Paper Seal of the United States, 2.5? diameter, serrated edges, affixed with red wax at lower left. Soiled. Very Good condition. In part, ?Know Ye, That Cadwalader Evans of Washington County Pennsylvania, having deposited in the Treasury a certificate of the Register of the Land office at Steubenville ?" whereby it appears that he has made full payment for the Lot or Section Number Seventeen of Township Number Eight in Range Number Three, of the Lands directed to be sold at Steubenville by the act of Congress, entitled ?An act providing for the sale of the Lands of the United States in the Territory north-west of the Ohio, and above the mouth of Kentucky river,? and of the acts amendatory of the same, There is granted ... the said lot ... of land, with the appurtenances, unto the said Cadwalader Evans is heirs and assigns forever ...? Cadwalader Evans (1762-1841) was a member of the Pennsylvania House of Representatives and served as Speaker in 1799. The Act provided the establishment of three Land Offices at Cincinnati, Chilicothe, and ?one at Steubenville, for lands lying east of the river Muskingum, excluding those townships between the military lands and the purchase of the Ohio Company, which are intersected by that river.? The Northwest Ordinance was an act of the United States in Congress Assembled passed July 13, 1787. The ordinance created the Northwest Territory, the first organized territory of the United States, from lands beyond the Appalachian Mountains, between British Canada and the Great Lakes to the north and the Ohio River to the south. The upper Mississippi River formed the Territory's western boundary. It includes the present states of Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, and part of Minnesota. On August 7, 1789, President George Washington signed a replacement, the Northwest Ordinance of 1789, in which the new 1st Congress reaffirmed the Ordinance with slight modifications under the newly effective Constitution of the United States."

        The Medical Observer. No. 1. On Advertised or Empirical Medicines

      London: John S. Highley. 1806. Small octavo. vi, 1-57, 66-112pp. Stitched as issued. First and final leaf somewhat dusty; neat early pencil notes in an adult hand on margins and blank areas of several pages, edgewear and soiling, very good. The Medical Observer appears to have run to 10 issues, concluding in Nov. 1811. This first issue is entirely devoted to describing and exposing the fraudulent nature of nostrums in some detail. A pagination jump from p. 57 recto to p. 66 verso is explained by the Editors note that: "... on the re-perusal of Mr. B.s case after it was printed ... the decision so contrary to law, that they have thought proper to suspend its publication ..." The publisher Highley was partner with John Murray II, until 1803, after which he took over the medical publications of the firm. Extremely scarce, with only this first part noted in the BLPC, not in Wellcome; RLIN locates no copies in America. .

        IN MORTE DI CARLO IMBONATI Versi di Alessandro Manzoni a Giulia Beccaria sua madre.

      Brescia, per Nicolò Bettoni, 1806 In-8 p. (mm. 202x125), bross. muta coeva, pp. 15. E?' questo il primo libro del Manzoni, allora poco più che ventenne e da poco stabilitosi a Parigi con la madre. Ne fu occasione la morte di Carlo Imbonati (Parigi, 1805), al quale donna Giulia Beccaria si era unita, dopo la separazione dal marito. Dopo la conversione il Manzoni cercò di far dimenticare questa operetta in lode del Conte Imbonati e ne proibì la diffusione. Pubblicato per la prima volta a Parigi nel 1806, questo carme riscosse un notevole interesse tanto che nello stesso anno, in Italia, apparvero ben tre edizioni: a Milano, a Roma (in 50 copie) e a Brescia. Cfr. Vismara,192 - Parenti ?"Rarità Bibl. dell?'800?",I, p. 163 per la prima ediz. parigina. Fresco esempl. intonso, su carta velina cilindrata, ben conservato .

        ALGIERS: Original Certificate on the Printed Form of the British Chancery Office in Algiers, Appointing Lewis Tonna as Blanckley's Secretary].

      Algiers 1806 - Algiers, 9 October 1806. Oblong Folio (ca. 25x39 cm). Official printed form of the British Chancery Office in Algiers, with woodcut arms at head; finished in manuscript in secretarial hand and signed by Blanckley in the right lower corner. Brown ink on laid paper. With official red wax seal on the left margin. Overall a very good document. "We, H. S. Blanckley Esquire, His Britannic Majesty's agent and consul general in this City and Kingdom, certify that We do constitute and appoint Lewis Tonna Esqr. Our Secretary and do hereby Order that he is to be obeyed and acknowledged as such by all and every Person whom this may concern". Issued at the British Chancery Office at Algiers in 1806 and signed off by the then consul general Henry Stanyford Blanckley, this document appointed Lewis Tonna as his secretary. Blanckley, an army Mayor, had taken part in the siege of Gibraltar in 1782 before a nineteen year stint as consul in the Balearic Islands. He was the British Consul General in Algiers in 1806-1812 and went on to play a role in shaping British policy towards the Barbary Coast. Lewis Hippolytus Joseph Tonna (d. 1828) later became a British vice-consul in Algiers and at Bona, vice-consul for Spain and consul for the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies in Liverpool. He married Blanckley's daughter Maria, and their son Lewis Tonna (1812-1857) was a polyglot, fellow of the Society of Antiquaries, fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and evangelical protestant campaigner.
