        An Examination of Sir John Sinclair's Observations on the Report of the Bullion Committee,

      London: Printed for T. Cadell and W. Davies, Hatchard, and Richardson,, 1811-12. and on the General Nature of Coin or Money, and the Advantages of Paper Circulation; [together with] 3 pamphlets on the topics of convertible paper currency and inflation in the wake of the Bullion Debate. 4 pamphlets in 1 volume, octavo (202 x 125 mm). Contemporary green straight grain morocco, spine and boards lettered and ruled in blind, blue endpapers, edges speckled green. Pp. iv, 16, 16*-17*, 17-111. Armorial bookplate of Henry Merrick Hoare to front pastedown. Ownership inscription to title page trimmed in the binding process, contents unevenly browned. First edition of the banker's treatise written in opposition to Sinclair's Observations (first 1810), bound together with three pamphlets, two by Hoare and one anonymously published, those by Hoare inscribed "from the author", the volume from the library of his fourth son, Henry Merrick Hoare (1770-1856). The Bullion Debate "arose from the publication of the report on the currency position by a committee dominated by monetarist economists. This report pointed out that since the suspension of cash payments by the Bank of England the pound had depreciated by some 15 per cent against gold. The committee held that it should be brought back to its former position in two years, ignoring the discomfort and distress that drastic deflation would bring ... Sinclair wrote a hurried and bulky pamphlet, Observations on the Report of the Bullion Committee (1810), and followed this up with another, Cursory Hints Regarding Paper Currency. Having in 1797 opposed the use of paper money [Sinclair] had now come to appreciate its flexibility and convenience, and was groping his way towards the concept of the need for an expanded circulation in an expanded economy. The resulting controversy with the authors of the bullion report, who were backed by Ricardo, was inconclusive, since neither side could appreciate the point of view of the other" (ODNB). OCLC lists 14 copies in institutional holdings worldwide, all but 2 in the UK and US.

        Autograph manuscript on paper entitled "Reise vom Niederrhein nach Siberien 1. Band" and "Reise vom Rhein zum Tobol 2. Theil" ("Journey from the Lower Rhine Region to Siberia" and "Journey from the Rhine to Tobol"). Written in German, black & brown ink on different papers, with additional notes and emendations by Eversmann. Two vols. of text in large 4to (350 x 240 mm.) & one volume of illustrations in oblong folio (320 x 520) with approximately 150 fine hand-colored drawings

      [Zlatoust, Russia and other places: ca. 1811-13]. A remarkable discovery: the unpublished manuscript by Friedrich August Alexander Eversmann (1759-1837), the famous Prussian technologist, describing his journey from Germany to Russia in 1810 during which he studied the nascent industries (mining and iron, steel, copper, glass production, metal working, textiles, chemicals, paper, etc.) of both countries. Eversmann describes this journal as a "technological journey" and provides extensive details and accounts of the mining and iron industries at the beginning of the Industrial Revolution. The manuscript was obviously intended to be published, which was never realized. Eversmann has added a few notes and additions to the manuscript at a slightly later date. Essentially unstudied, the manuscript has remained in private ownership, with access restricted to a few academics. The greater part of the manuscript has been recently transcribed (the transcription accompanies the manuscript). In fine condition. The Author: Eversmann was an important Prussian government adviser, technologist, and specialist in mining and metallurgy. As an economist, he was active in the promotion of mining and trade, especially in Westphalia and Silesia. He was the protégé of the influential Prussian minister and economist Friedrich Anton von Heynitz (1725-1802), the great reformer of Prussian industry and mining and the founder of the oldest university of mining and metallurgy, the Bergakademie at Freiberg. Eversmann accompanied von Heynitz on his inspection trips to manufacturers, factories, and mining works in various regions of Prussia and gained first-hand knowledge of technical and mechanical problems. He also developed his ability to draw and learned how to capture the results of his observations in sketches and drawings (Breil, 13). In 1781, Eversmann was appointed Bergkommissar. At the recommendation of von Heynitz, Eversmann traveled in 1783-84 through the industrial areas of Britain (London, Cornwall, Anglesea, Dublin, Donaghadee, Liverpool, York, Northumberland, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Newcastle, Durham, Birmingham, Derby) to study the mining industry, iron and steel factories, and, especially, the newly invented steam engine and its uses in mining. Eversmann was later accused by Matthew Boulton of industrial spying (for which he was certainly guilty!). Following his return, he was sent to Silesia to improve the iron industry there following the English models. In 1786 Eversmann was responsible for obtaining a steam engine from England built by Homfrey for the coal mine in Tarnowitz, Silesia. This machine, based on the design of James Watt, was the first steam engine in Prussia. Life changed for Eversmann during the Napoleonic wars in Germany: in 1809, he was dismissed from his posts as politically unreliable. He emigrated to Russia, where he first directed mining and metallurgical companies in the Ural region and in 1812 oversaw the design and construction of a gun factory for the Tsar. In 1818 he retired and in 1819 returned to Prussia. Eversmann wrote several noteworthy books on technology and frequently published articles in German mining journals. Eversmann in Russia: As mentioned above, Eversmann was dismissed from his posts in Prussia and sought his fortune in Russia, arriving there in 1810. A German entrepreneur, Hans Peter Andreas Knauf, known in Russia as Andrey Andreevich Knauf (1765-1835), had offered Eversmann the position of a director of his industrial enterprises in the Ural region. Knauf had played a significant role in the development of the mining and iron foundry industries in the Urals, introducing new technologies, including the steam engine. En route to Russia, Eversmann made a scientific tour visiting the mining area of the Harz region which is described in the first manuscript volume: technical companies and mining methods are described in the Oberharz region, Lauterberg, Clausthal-Zellerfeld, Oker (Goslar), and many other mining towns. The greater part of Vol. I of the manuscript contains observations which Eversmann made while visiting metalwork companies in Iserlohn and Altena, silver mines and vitriol companies in Siegen and Marburg, and glass factories in Schornborn and Grünplan. He describes the mining and foundry industries and the steel industry in Salzgitter, Braunschweig and Goslar; the brass ware plants in Uslar; and the copper producing companies in Altenau. Very detailed descriptions of the products and there prices are given, along with details of the production process often in comparison to other companies and countries. The machines and blast furnaces are described in detail and their advantages over machines in other regions or countries are also outlined. All the major companies working with metal, steel or copper are visited and described on his route. There are also 92 leaves loosely inserted, all in the hand of Eversmann, copying texts from journals or scientists like the German mineralogist Johann Friedrich Ludwig Hausmann (1782-1859) who was then general inspector of mines for Westphalia and professor of technology and mining at Göttingen University. Three essays on roasting ores are by him and two on similar mining procedures are by Augustin Gottfried Ludwig Lentin (1764-1823) who was a lecturer at the University of Göttingen and subsequently inspector of saltworks. He is known to have made experiments on the roasting and smelting of ores at Rammelsberg in a large furnace, which is also described. Traveling on to Halle & Berlin, where he visited steel companies, porcelain and brass ware manufacturers, Eversmann describes the trades and architecture of the capital. Proceeding on to Neustadt-Eberswalde, he visited brass ware companies and brick factories. He then travels to Danzig, Königsberg, and from page 300 describes the agriculture and factories in Russia, including steel and copper manufacturers in Riga, other companies and factories in Dorpat, and then finally St. Petersburg and Moscow. In the late autumn of 1810 he reached Zlatoust, the famous ironworks town founded in 1754. Eversmann soon learned that Knauf had gone bankrupt and the state had taken over the company. Eversmann was commissioned by the Russian government to visit the state's factories in the Ural region to explore the location of a proposed sword factory. In 1813 he became employed by the Russian state and supervised the design and construction of the famous "factory for cold weapons" (the above-mentioned gun factory) in Zlatoust. In 1813 and 1814, he recruited specialists in Wuppertal and Solingen and brought 115 workmen with him to Russia for the planned factory, which began operations under his direction in 1816. The second volume of the manuscript is a vividly-detailed description of the earliest stages of Russia's industrialization, written by one deeply involved in that transformation. The first 44 pages describe his trip from Moscow to Zlatoust. In addition to the factories in and around Zlatoust, a number of others are described, such as in Troitsk, in and around Ekaterinburg, Ishevsk, the vicinity of St. Petersburg, etc. Eversmann describes in the journal chiefly the iron and copper manufactures, including the blast furnaces, wind furnaces, the cupola furnace, the raw steel smithy, the tin plate manufacture, special iron fixtures, cannon and ammunition foundries, steam engines, etc. He also provides many observations about all aspects of Russian life. He describes the city of Moscow and a factory for the production of vitriol and ammonia, as well as a textile house, a gun-powder firm, and a paper factory (adding a list of the varieties and prices of the paper). Outside of Moscow, he visited a hat producing company, inspected and described the blast furnaces, and recommended the "Windofen-Betrieb," a special open furnace. Eversmann also gives descriptions of the other stages of his journey to Zlatoust. Eversmann describes the steel making factory at Simsk in detail, the wire factory in Wiksunsk, the scythe fabricator in Bataschow, a lead company in Wixa, and from pages 45 on, of course, the industrial activities at Zlatoust (the "Schwarzblech-Fabrikation" for the use of metal roofers; fabrication of iron rail, a canon foundry, gold mining, other sorts of mining and refining, rifle fabrication, etc.). He also describes the geology of Zlatoust in a very detailed way, and the organization of the iron plant and all its different companies and production spaces, many kinds of furnaces and metallurgical machinery (described are "Hohen-Offen" (furnace), "Kupfer-Ofen" (copper furnace), "Frisch-Feuer," "Walzen für Bleche und Bändern," "Kanonenbohrmühle," "Eisen-Drechsel-Anstalt," and "Stahl-Reckhammer" (sledges). He also describes his travels north to Perm and south to Orenburg to study the steel industry on behalf of the tsar. The main power source is water: from a dam with a sluice, which has three openings, the water is forced onto the wheels at high pressure. For a variety water wheels, he gives details of construction and uses of the power (illustrated). He also describes the Ural mountains, especially between Polikowsky and Ekaterinburg. Eversmann offers much information about what the workers eat, drink, how they store things, their working day, and how they (mis)spend their leisure time. Zlatoust was mainly an iron manufacturing town, but copper was beginning to be produced as well. In a copper pit, a steam engine, which a Russian had designed, was used to pump the water. Zlatoust consisted of the following production facilities: two blast furnaces, two reverberation furnaces, four copper furnaces of various designs, various steel furnaces, a drill mill, a steel fire engine, a Breithammer, vices, winches, tongs, nails, iron crates, utensils, a sawmill, and a grinding mill. Eversmann describes the individual steps of production methods in great detail and has provided drawings. This journal contains an abundance of observations and experiences, especially in conjunction with the finely drawn illustrations, and is an invaluable source for the history of industry, especially Russia. The volume of drawings provides descriptions of the country and its inhabitants as well as the situation of foreign specialists and reflections on the development of industry in Russia. The drawings range from simple drawings of small format (from approx. 130 x 210 mm.) to finely executed pencil drawings with wash watercolor, mostly of technical procedures and details. Particularly noteworthy are some maps, such a map of the Urals labelled in Russian and German "in relation to the Sawoden of the Lord Andreas Knauff" (approx. 640 x 810 mm.), a map of the "Uralische Sawoden" (the steel factories of the Sawoden, about 1080 x 920 mm.). There is as well a Russian map of the city of Troizk with a map of the surrounding area. Eversmann obviously intended to publish a book about his experiences in Russia and the industrial areas he had visited. The present manuscript offered here has never been edited or published and has always been in private hands, restricted to a very few academic researchers (and they had limited access as well). Physical description: Vol. I: "Reise vom Niederrhein nach Siberien 1.

        Practical Observations on the Formation of an Artificial Pupil, in Several Deranged States of the Eye; to which are annexed, Remarks on the Extraction of Soft Cataracts, and Those of the Membraneous Kind, through a Puncture in the Cornea

      Printed for Cadell and Davies, London 1811 - Important early work by the Manchester England eye surgeon, Benjamin Gibson, his only work. Gibson (1774- 1812) is noted for support of linear extraction of cataracts, especially congenital cases; he also perfected the design of surgical instruments, which are illustrated in this volume. Gibson's expertise in surgery on young patients suffering from congenital cataracts changed the contemporary approach toward surgery on children. Gibson proved that it could be safely and successfully undertaken on infants; he published a paper in the Edinburgh Medical and Surgical Journal (Vol. VII., 1811) on " The use of the couching-needle in infants of a few months old." Gibson also made an early report (1807) on the transmission of neonatal gonorrheal ophthalmitis from mother to newborn. This was before the use of silver nitrate in newborns' eyes became common practice.Gibson famously restored some sight, after 33 years of blindness, to the poet and radical Edward Rushton in a series of operations between 1805 and 1807. Rushton, who following surgery was able to see his wife and children for the first time, wrote and dedicated in gratitude a long poem to Gibson.Includes history of the operation for forming an artificial pupil; modes of forming the artificial pupil (the natural lens is replaced with an artificial intraocular lens); opacity at the center of the cornea; 5 operations depending upon the degree of adhesions between cornea & iris; mode of extracting a soft cataract; and mode of extraction of membraneous cataracts, with four different cases described.8vo, 155pp, 2 engraved plates. The first plate showing 3 instruments: the hook, forceps and "iris scissars"; the second plate showing the condition of the eyes of 3 patients following specific surgeries. Half-title with small Medical Library Bath stamp at verso, over stamped "canceled". Early binding, three quarter tan calf and marbled boards, with title gilt title at black spine label, along with gilt decorative rules. "This work includes a valuable account of the history of the operation for artificial pupil"---Becker 152. OCLC: 2410184. We have found only two copies at auction, the last one over 10 years ago.

        Voyages du Chevalier Chardin, en Perse, et autres lieux de l’Orient, enrichis d’un grand nombre de belles figures en taille-douce, représentant les Antiquités et les choses remarquables du pays. Nouvelle édition par L. Langlès (ATLAS VOLUME ONLY).

      de l'Imprimrie de Le Normant, Paris 1811 - 2 maps, + 63 plates (ten of which are folding including a map), contains engraved portrait by Macret after Loggan, original carton boards, lightly stained and rubbed round edges, new leather spine, book plate G. Giraud verso front cover, copy in very good condition. This work was described by one of the greatest Orientalists of the eighteenth century, William Jones, as the best account of the Muslim nations ever published. Chardin's first voyage undertaken in 1655, he went as far as India but then returned to Persia where he stayed for six years mastering Turkish and Arabic, besides Persian, and travelling widely. In 1671 he again travelled to Persia by way of Smyrna, Istanbul, the Crimea and the Caucasus. He visited India a second time . This work has a profound influence on the philosophers and historians of his time. Besides his own observations, Chardin, based his remarks on information furnished to him by Pere Rafael du Mans, the French Capuchin monk who lived in Isphahan for over 50 years (1644-1696) and was the most knowledgeable Westerner on Persia.

        Briefe geschrieben auf einer Reise durch die Schweiz im Jahr 1810

      Four engraved plates (one folding). 4 p.l., 296 pp., 3 leaves of ads for the author's other works; 2 p.l., 514, [8] pp. Two vols. Small 8vo, cont. orange-brown speckled boards (spines a little rubbed), orange leather lettering pieces on spines. Düsseldorf: J.H.C. Schreiner, 1811-12.First edition of a scarce and appealing work. Benzenberg (1777-1846), professor of mathematics at the Lyceum in Düsseldorf, performed many original scientific investigations in the fields of astronomy, physics, and geodetics. He was the first to demonstrate that the earth revolves, a problem which had perplexed scientists since Copernicus (see D.S.B., I, pp. 615-16).This is an account, recorded in a series of long letters, of a scientific journey through the main cities and industrial sites of Switzerland as well as to many of the most notable features of geology and natural history. He records his visits to many leading scientists of Switzerland and his examination of observatories and instruments. There are sections on his corroboration of Chladni's theory of the cosmic origin of meteorites, Gauss's examination of Benzenberg's demonstration that the earth revolves, and his own important experiments with barometers.Fine set. The plates depict scientific instruments and an observatory.

        7 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Zus. 19 S., 8 u. 4. Beiliegend 4 (3 eigenh.) Briefe von Arenbergs Frau Sophie Prinzessin von Auersperg (österr. Schriftstellerin u. Wohltäterin 1811-1901 zus. 6 S., 8), nach der 1905 die Salzburger Arenbergstraße benannt wurde. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

        An Examination of Sir John Sinclair's Observations on the Report of the Bullion Committee, and on the General Nature of Coin or Money, and the Advantages of Paper Circulation; [together with] 3 pamphlets on the topics of convertible paper currency and inflation in the wake of the Bullion Debate.

      London: Printed for T. Cadell and W. Davies, Hatchard, and Richardson, 1811-12 - 4 pamphlets in 1 volume, octavo (202 x 125 mm). Contemporary green straight grain morocco, spine and boards lettered and ruled in blind, blue endpapers, edges speckled green. Pp. iv, 16, 16*-17*, 17-111. Armorial bookplate of Henry Merrick Hoare to front pastedown. Ownership inscription to title page trimmed in the binding process, contents unevenly browned. First edition of the banker's treatise written in opposition to Sinclair's Observations (first 1810), bound together with three pamphlets, two by Hoare and one anonymously published, those by Hoare inscribed "from the author", the volume from the library of his fourth son, Henry Merrick Hoare (1770-1856). The Bullion Debate "arose from the publication of the report on the currency position by a committee dominated by monetarist economists. This report pointed out that since the suspension of cash payments by the Bank of England the pound had depreciated by some 15 per cent against gold. The committee held that it should be brought back to its former position in two years, ignoring the discomfort and distress that drastic deflation would bring . Sinclair wrote a hurried and bulky pamphlet, Observations on the Report of the Bullion Committee (1810), and followed this up with another, Cursory Hints Regarding Paper Currency. Having in 1797 opposed the use of paper money [Sinclair] had now come to appreciate its flexibility and convenience, and was groping his way towards the concept of the need for an expanded circulation in an expanded economy. The resulting controversy with the authors of the bullion report, who were backed by Ricardo, was inconclusive, since neither side could appreciate the point of view of the other" (ODNB). OCLC lists 14 copies in institutional holdings worldwide, all but 2 in the UK and US. Bound up with An Examination of Sir John Sinclair's Observations on the Report of the Bullion Committee are these additional texts on monetary theory: a) — Reflections on the Possible Existence and Supposed Evidence of National Bankruptcy.

        Uncle Tom's Cabin Or, Negro Life in the Slave Staves of America. Embellished with Eight Engranings.

      13,5 cm x 20 cm. Frontispiece, VI, 351 pages. Original Hardcover / Original full leather with gilt ornaments on spine and boards. Spine label faded, otherwise in good condition with some stronger signs of external wear. Harriet Elisabeth Beecher Stowe (June 14, 1811 July 1, 1896) was an American abolitionist and author. She came from the Beecher family, a famous religious family, and is best known for her novel Uncle Tom's Cabin (1852). It depicts the harsh life for African Americans under slavery. It reached millions as a novel and play, and became influential in the United States and Great Britain. It energized anti-slavery forces in the American North, while provoking widespread anger in the South. She wrote 30 books, including novels, three travel memoirs, and collections of articles and letters. She was influential for both her writings and her public stands on social issues of the day. Harriet Elisabeth Beecher was born in Litchfield, Connecticut, on June 14, 1811. She was the seventh of 13 children born to outspoken Calvinist preacher Lyman Beecher and Roxana (Foote), a deeply religious woman who died when Stowe was only five years old. Roxana's maternal grandfather was General Andrew Ward of the Revolutionary War. Her notable siblings included a sister, Catharine Beecher, who became an educator and author, as well as brothers who became ministers: including Henry Ward Beecher, who became a famous preacher and abolitionist, Charles Beecher, and Edward Beecher. Harriet enrolled in the Hartford Female Seminary run by her older sister Catharine, where she received a traditional academic education usually reserved for males at the time with a focus in the classics, including studies of languages and mathematics. Among her classmates was Sarah P. Willis, who later wrote under the pseudonym Fanny Fern. In 1832, at the age of 21, Harriet Beecher moved to Cincinnati, Ohio to join her father, who had become the president of Lane Theological Seminary. There, she also joined the Semi-Colon Club, a literary salon and social club whose members included the Beecher sisters, Caroline Lee Hentz, Salmon P. Chase (future governor of the state and Secretary of Treasury under President Lincoln), Emily Blackwell and others. Cincinnati's trade and shipping business on the Ohio River was booming, drawing numerous migrants from different parts of the country, including many free blacks, as well as Irish immigrants who worked on the state's canals and railroads. Areas of the city had been wrecked in the Cincinnati riots of 1829, when ethnic Irish attacked blacks, trying to push competitors out of the city. Beecher met a number of African Americans who had suffered in those attacks, and their experience contributed to her later writing about slavery. Riots took place again in 1836 and 1841, driven also by native-born anti-abolitionists. It was in the literary club that she met Calvin Ellis Stowe, a widower who was a professor at the seminary. The two married on January 6, 1836. He was an ardent critic of slavery, and the Stowes supported the Underground Railroad, temporarily housing several fugitive slaves in their home. Most slaves continued north to secure freedom in Canada. The Stowes had seven children together, including twin daughters. (Wikipedia)

In three Volumes. 3 volumes, octavo (225 x 140 mm). Modern half calf, marbled paper boards, red morocco label to spine, compartments and raised bands ruled and decorated in gilt, edges uncut. Engraved portrait frontispiece to vol. I, 3 vignette title pages as issued, 4 plates in vol. I and 9 in vol. II, some folding. Small tears to sig. B6 and M2 of vol.

Second edition (first 1806), a reissue of the first edition with the change of printed titles and lacking the publisher's advertisements to the end of volume III as issued. A collection of the revolutionary politician and natural philosopher's letters and papers which discuss his groundbreaking experiments in electricity as well as his thoughts on a wide variety of subjects including astrological phenomena, magnetism, naval navigation techniques, the structure of education, the slave trade, economy, and his account of the American Revolution. Franklin's reputation as the first great American scientist rests on his work on electricity; his accounts of experiments using Leyden bottles, lightning rods, and charged clouds are extensively recorded in his papers, many of which were published for the first time in 1806. Jared Sparks has noted that "the editor [of this edition] was a Mr. Marshall. His name is not connected with the work; but he performed his part with good judgement, and used much diligence in searching for essays and papers, that had not before been comprised in any collection" (Ford p. 249). The index to all three volumes is placed at the end of the first volume instead of the last "to render the volumes more equal" (Advertisement).
