        Essai sur la force animale, et sur le principe du mouvement volontaire.

      Paris, Firmin Didot, 1811. ____ Seule édition. Très rare ouvrage du célèbre horloger Abraham Louis Breguet (1747-1823), publié à ses frais et à petit nombre. Il n'a jamais été mis dans le commerce et a été distribué par son auteur. "La cause physique qui produit la force et le mouvement des animaux est un problème qui a souvent occupé l'esprit humain, et qui est encore loin d'être résolu. Cette question présente tant de difficultés, que l'homme croit devoir s'en interdire la recherche, et se résigne à l'ignorance sur ce point." Une note manuscrite retrouvée dans un exemplaire de ce livre, citée par Quérard, Supercheries littéraires, conteste l'idée que Bréguet en soit l'auteur. Ce qui nous parait très douteux : cette note, pleine d'aigreur, est très insultante pour Bréguet. Son auteur le qualifie de "tout à fait illettré", (il était membre de l'Académie des Sciences et du Bureau des longitudes !). ll affirme qu'il l'a rédigé d'après les papiers de Gauterot qui s'est occupé de galvanisme. Or, on lit dans l'introduction de cet 'Essai', que le galvanisme est une théorie "tombée d'elle-même". Bon exemplaire, très grand de marges. Dos fendillé. On trouve trois importantes corrections ou additions au texte pages 6 et 32 qui sont peut-être de la main de Bréguet.*****. Grand in-8. Collation : 39 pp., 1 planche h.-t. Broché, couverture muette de l'époque.

        Nouvel Atlas des Enfans et des Commerçans, ou les premiers élémens de la Géographie...

      Paris: Chez Saintin, 1811. Octavo, two hand-coloured plates and seven hand-coloured maps (four double-page, three folding), some loss to a few pages (seemingly original defects in the paper, and not affecting text); half calf, a little rubbed, bumped at corners, a handsome copy. A wonderful children's Atlas, with delightful depictions of Tahiti, New Zealand and Hawaii. Although much reprinted and very popular, this work is now rare in any edition.This Atlas includes two exquisite plates, each with twelve small vignettes, detailing the peoples of the world. The first three main panels show images of European, Asian, and African scenes, while the fourth has 'American' images; there are not only charming images of Iroquois, Californians, and Peruvians, but incredibly, the three final scenes show New Zealanders, Tahitians and inhabitants of the Sandwich Islands (here accidentally called "Americans", almost a century before their formal annexation). Each of the vignettes is also vouchsafed a very brief note, with some unusual commentary: we learn that the New Zealanders love their children, that the lower-caste Hawaiians prostrate themselves on the ground before royalty, and that the only quadrupeds in Tahiti are dogs, cats, and rats.The series of maps is equally interesting, with good depictions of France, Europe, Africa and the Americas. There is also a large double-hemisphere map of the globe by Blondeau: New Holland is shown still attached to Van Diemens Land, and the Pacific Islands are represented in some detail, showing the Society Islands, the Marquesas, and the Friendly Isles. The Sandwich Islands are also clearly marked, with the familiar caption that 'here Captain Cook was killed'.Saintin was a publisher of popular editions of authors such as Moliere and Homer, and issued several such works of geographical instruction.

        An Analysis of Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England...

      London: Cadell and Davies, 1811. Octavo; an excellent copy in contemporary half calf (spine renewed) and marbled boards, new endpapers. First edition of a rare piece by of one of Australia's first civilian judges, one of our first poets (and warm friend of Charles Lamb), and a man often unfairly remembered by the young Disraeli's dismissive description, "a noisy, obtrusive, jargonic judge". The nature of Field's book is made clear by the full title: "An Analysis of Blackstone's Commentaries... in a series of questions to which the student is to frame his own answers, by reading that work". This copy has neat marginal annotations by John De Mole, who has signed the title-page in London in 1816.Unknown to Ferguson and to the 1986 Addenda, this is one of Field's earliest publications, written at a time when he was supporting himself by his literary endeavours. An excellent copy, spine renewed.

From 1808 to 1835 he was first professor of violin and viola at the newly opened Milan Conservatory... Continuing the northern Italian tradition of Sammartini and others, Rolla was very active in the field of instrumental music... Rolla's compositions, which number some 500 or more, relate to both the Italian instrumental tradition (particularly that of Boccherini) and the Viennese Classical style... In his chamber music Rolla displays his increasing familiarity with Beethoven's music." Antonio Rostagno in Grove Music Online. "In his compositions, he elevated the viola, which before had been rarely used as a solo instrument, to a status equal to the violin's; especially his duets for violin and viola enjoyed wide circulation and many reprints."

        LETTER FROM THE SECRETARY OF THE NAVY, TRANSMITTING SUNDRY DOCUMENTS EXHIBITING CERTAIN PRELIMINARY EXPERIMENTS WHICH HAVE BEEN MADE IN THE CITY AND HARBOR OF NEW YORK, IN CONFORMITY WITH AN ACT OF CONGRESS, ENTITLED "AN ACT MAKING AN APPROPRIATION FOR THE PURPOSE OF TRYING THE PRACTICAL USE OF THE TORPEDO OR SUB-MARINE EXPLOSION."

      Washington: A. and G. Way, 1811. - 55pp., including six in-text illustrations. Later paper boards, gilt spine label. Hinges cracked, corners slightly worn, spine label rubbed. Some foxing and toning. About very good. A rare government report, consisting of letters from inventor Robert Fulton and others on several experiments involving torpedos and underground mines. In 1810, Congress authorized Robert Fulton, best known for his work on canal navigation and steamboats, to pursue the development of torpedo and sub-marine weaponry as a means of national defense. Fulton proceeded to conduct several experiments in New York harbor to test the devices. This report contains letters from several witnesses to the experiments, including Oliver Wolcott and Cadwallader Colden, giving a wealth of firsthand observations on several of the experiments conducted in the fall of 1810, as well as letters from Fulton giving his spin on the results. The illustrations include drawings of torpedos and boats. The Navy Department concluded that "Mr. Fulton has not, in the opinion of a majority of the committee, proved that the government ought to rely upon his system as a means of national defence." Fulton argued, however, that he had made important improvements and that he was confident of success, if only he could have access to the rest of the appropriations that had been set aside for his experiments - an excuse that military contractors have re-used and perfected over the decades since. OCLC, Rink, and Shaw & Shoemaker together locate only a handful of copies. Rare and important in the development of submarine weaponry and military procurement processes. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 24168. RINK 2199. SABIN 26196. HOWES F417, "aa." OCLC 30133008, 33820186.

RELIE, X + 366 PAGES AVEC UNE TABLE ANALYTIQUE RAISONNEE DES MATIERES DU CODE PENAL. Le Code Pénal de 1810 promulgué en février 1810 par l’Empereur NAPOLEON, a survécu dans ses lignes essentielles jusqu’à l’époque moderne et a eu une influence sur la plupart des législations étrangères. La valeur de la politique criminelle de NAPOLEON, consacrée par le Code Pénal de 1810 est attestée par ses résultats. Ses auteurs se sont trouvés en présence d’une société profondément troublée ou l’insécurité et la violence régnaient partout en maîtresses. Quelques années après la promulgation du Code Pénal et son entrée dans les mœurs, la société française était pacifiée. Alors que le Code Civil était une synthèse apportant des principes nouveaux à un cadre ancien perfectionné, mais existant, le Code Pénal de 1810 a du faire table rase du droit antérieur et innover, faisant œuvre de conciliation entre la rigueur inhumaine de l’Ancien Régime et la douceur rousseauiste exagérée du Code Pénal de 1791. TARGET définit l’esprit du Code de 1810 en montrant que « la peine de mort n’est pas une vengeance, que la gravité des crimes se mesure non pas tant par la perversité qu’ils annoncent que par les dangers qu’ils entraînent. L’efficacité de la peine se mesure moins par sa rigueur que par la crainte qu’elle inspire ». Le Code Pénal de 1810 est très rigoureux: la peine capitale est maintenue et même multipliée quant à ses cas d’application: assassinats,meurtres, incendies volontaires, fausse monnaie, etc. Les peines perpétuelles ( travaux forcés à perpétuité) sont rétabli. Mais en même temps le tarif automatique créé par le Code Pénal de 1791 disparaît au profit d’un barème indicatif à l’intérieur duquel le juge est libre de se prononcer. Le juge ne jouit pas d’une liberté entière, mais dispose néanmoins d’une possibilité d’appliquer un système plus ou moins rigoureux selon le degré de dangerosité de celui qu’il a à juger. Quelques années après sa promulgation l’inspiration du Code Pénal de 1810 est attaquée sur deux fronts: par les philosophes kantiens car il ne défend pas assez la morale et n’a pour but que de faire régner l’ordre, et par l’école pénitentiaire parce qu’il est inhumain dans la mesure ou il se préoccupe peu du relèvement du condamné mais surtout du sort des honnêtes gens qui ont besoin d’être protégés contre les crimes et délits de ceux qui perturbent la vie sociale. En même temps devant l’augmentation de la délinquance et l’affolement corrélatif des « simples citoyens », l’esprit du Code Pénal de 1810 reparaît dans la pensée moderne et sous tend une politique pénale et une législation comme la loi dite « Sécurité et Liberté » qui bien que critiqué par une partie des juristes et philosophes a été approuvée par le plus grand nombre des Français. Devant la montée de la criminalité, de la violence et de l’insécurité, la criminologie et le législateur français du début du XXI ° siècle semblent vouloir revenir aux préceptes du Code Pénal de 1810 comme code de bon sens et d’efficacité et lui redonnent une valeur idéologique qu’il avait perdu quelques années après sa promulgation. On peut donc dire que l’œuvre pénale de NAPOLEON 1er, si critiquée qu’elle fût par les « progressistes » et « humanistes » de tous poils, reste moderne et réalis [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Wronski (1778-1853) "semble avoir été l'un des précurseurs de la science actuelle". Il combattit dans les rangs de l'armée polonaise, puis russe, et enfin française. Wronsky dépassait la philosophie Kantienne en affirmant pour l'homme la possibilité d'atteindre l'absolu, ce qui lui était apparu dans une illumination en 1803. Il sut appliquer sa philosophie aux mathématiques dans une série de travaux inaugurée par l'Introduction à la philosophie mathématique. Étiquettes ex-libris Alexandre Alberto de Sousa Pinto.

        A General History and Collection of Voyages and Travels, Arranged in Systematic Order (volumes 1-16)(1811-1815)

      William Blackwood; J. Murray; J. Cuming 1811 - First edition, first printing of 16 (of 18) volume set. 1811-1815. Matching half leather and marbled boards. Very good or better condition. Each volume bears the bookplate of Sir James Carmichael Smyth (1779-1838)(1st Baronet). Baronet title acquired as a result of his actions in the Battle of Waterloo. Volumes measure 8 3/8 x 5 1/2 inches (21 x 13.5 cm). All edges trimmed with light decorative sprinkled marbling. To my untrained eye I think these may have had the spines professionally relaid approximately 100 years ago. Volume 10 has a more recent matching spine. Internally they are excellent in every way. Occasional pencil notations on endpapers but no other markings. Set looks to have been collected sequentially and carefully maintained since. All bindings are sound. Volumes 1-16 were issued between 1811 and 1815. Volumes 17 and 18 are absent. The author died in 1813 so no doubt there were delays in publication and the Baronet lost interest. I believe v. 17 was issued in 1816 and v. 18 in 1824. The present set contains 16 maps and one folding plate (Captain Cook's Polynesian vocabulary). Kerr is not so much an author but an editor. Wherever possible he reproduced the original journals. He edited them to reduce redundancy but maintain fidelity to the original text. His first volume shows the trouble he went to. He has rendered into English 9th century Icelandic texts then on to 9th and 10th century Anglo-Saxon texts. Where meaning is obscure he does not fail to annotate. This was a major effort by a true scholar. What you have here is pretty much every major European voyage of discovery, for which there is written word, prior to 1800 in its original form or translation with precise editing, translation notes and comments by Kerr. The maps show a commensurate effort. If you tried to duplicate this in the least expensive way by purchasing individual copies of modern paperback or print on demand versions of all these voyages you would be hard pressed to do it for less money than this set. Volume 16 ends with the death of Captain Cook and the absent final two volumes cover the journals of the remainder of that voyage. Please feel free to ask questions as there is far too much information to include here. You can buy sets for less money but not in better condition or with this kind of provenance. Please see scans of the books you will receive. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Eerste beginselen der kruid-kunde IIde[-IIIde] deel. Tot onderrichting en vermaak voor het schoone geslacht, als ook voor die genen die de eerste beginselen der kruidkunde beöefenen.Amsterdam, Jan Barend Elwe, 1810. 2 (of 3) volumes. 12mo. With 2 engraved title-pages, and 36 botanical flower and herb plates: 4 in volume 2 and 32 in volume 3. Contemporary boards covered with the original publisher's engraved paper.

      - Kinderen lazen, kinderen lezen 349; KVK & WorldCat (8 copies); NCC (6 of the same 8 copies); Saakes V (1811), p. 212. Beautifully illustrated and hand-coloured introduction to herbs and flowers, designed to teach women and girls the principles of botany, with 36 plates in the present 2 (of 3) volumes (all 32 plates of individual species plus 4 of the 10 detail plates). It first appeared serially in Almanach der kruid-kunde published in four annual volumes for the years 1800 to 1803, but for the present independent publication the almanac elements were dropped and the botanical texts and plates of the four volumes rearranged in three volumes. The book names no author but was in fact prepared by the celebrated botanist Johan Carl Krauss (1759-1826). The 4 plates in volume II, numbered Pl. VII-X, show 131 detail figures numbered per plate. Each of the 32 plates in volume III shows one whole plant and is preceded by a letterpress leaf giving a 2-page account of the plant and its botanical characteristics. These plates are not numbered, but each gives the number of the botanical class of the plant species, Cl. I-VI, VIII-XXIII (there was never a text or plate for class VII).With an old owner's inscription and modern bookplate. Lacking volume I (with plates I-VI) and with some water stains at the head of the title-page and a few text leaves in vol. II, but otherwise in good condition. The bindings are rubbed and the spines restored (with the loss of most of the engraved backstrips). A rare and lovely little introduction to botany for women and girls, with 36 hand-coloured botanical plates.

In the 'Editor's Preface to the German and French Editions,' Frederick the Great's strategic prowess as displayed in these Instructions is described thus: "Here Frederic [sic] fully displays the art, by which he was so constantly victorious:?the manner of misleading the Enemy respecting the real point of attack?even the art of rapidly passing from the defensive to the offensive state, keeping in view all the chances of success. By these principles, peculiarly his own, he was enabled often to accomplish great actions with small comparative means."

        Bildnis einer jungen Dame en profile. Orig.-Physionotrace (Kupferstich).

      Paris wohl nach 1811. - Rundes Bild - Durchmesser 6 cm (Blattgröße ca. 9 x 8 cm). Im Unterrand der Platte bezeichnet "Dess(in) et Gr(avure) par Bouchardy Suc(cesseur) de Chrétien inv(enteur) du Physionotrace Palais Royale No. 82 à Paris". In schwarz lackiertem, zeitgenössischem Holzrähmchen mit reicher Stuckverzierung. Weiß hintermaltes Glas mit oktagonalem Bildausschnitt mit umlaufender gemalter Kante in Gold und Schwarz (Gold teilweise etwas abgesplittert). Sehr gut erhalten. Von großer Seltenheit. Der Violincellist Gilles Louis Chrétien (1754-1811) stellte der Akademie der Wissenschaften in Paris 1786 den von ihm erfundenen Physionotrace-Apparat vor. Er entsprach in seinen Grundzügen der Apparatur, welche bereits Lavater zum Silhouettieren benutzte, nur daß hier der Zeichner die Konturen des Gesichts nicht mit der freien Hand nachzeichnete, sondern dazu einen Storchenschnabel benutzte. Das Physionotrace war im Gegensatz zur Silhouette ein teilmechanisiertes Abbildungsverfahren. Auf dem Weg zur Mechanisierung der Abbildung ohne die eingreifende Hand des Künstlers, stellt es die letzte Stufe vor der Photographie dar; durch seine Reproduzierbarkeit geht es sogar über die Daguerreotypie hinaus, die ja ein einmaliges Bild war, von dem keine weiteren Abzüge gemacht werden konnten. Das fertige Physionotrace-Portrait maß im Durchmesser 5-7 cm und wurde in einem weiteren Arbeitsgang in Kupfer gestochen. Von dieser Druckplatte konnten bis zu 2000 Abzüge angefertigt werden, in aller Regel wurden aber kaum mehr als ein Dutzend Drucke angefertigt. Die Portraits wurden z.T. auch koloriert. Das Verfahren erlangte aber über Frankreich hinaus kaum größere Popularität. Edme Quenedey des Riceys (1756-1830), ein Kupferstecher und Radierer, der 1788/89 bei Chrétien arbeitete und sich dann selbständig machte, war zwar auch in Brüssel und Hamburg tätig, jedoch ist über diese Zeiten bisher wenig bekannt. In den USA wurde das Verfahren wohl 1796 von J.J. Boudier eingeführt. Auch Charles Balthazar Julien de Fevet Saint-Memin (1770-1852) übte dort das Verfahren u.a. in New York zusammen mit seinem Landsmann Thomas Bluget de Valdenuit aus und schuf dabei auch Physionotrace-Portraits mehrerer US-Präsidenten. Der Miniaturmaler Bouchardy (père - 1797-1849) - sein Vorname ist nicht sicher überliefert - übernahm nach Chrètiens Tod 1811 dessen Atelier. Über sein Leben weiß man gesichert nur, daß er einer auf Miniaturmalerei spezialisierten Portraitistenfamilie entstammte, ob sein vermutlicher Sohn Etienne ebenfalls Pysionotraces verfertigte ist fraglich. 1932 erschien in Paris das Buch "Les portraits au physionotrace graves de 1788 à 1830. Catalogue nominatif[.]" von René Hennequin, die alle bis dato dem Verfasser bekannt gewordenen Physionotrace-Portraits katalogisierte. Ob vorliegendes Physionotrace dort angezeigt wird weiß ich nicht, da mir das heute selbst schon sehr seltene und gesuchte Werk nicht zur Verfügung stand (von Hennequin gibt es noch weitere Veröffentlichungen zum Thema, u.a. eine Biographie Edme Quenedeys). Empfehlenswert ist auch der sehr gut recherchierte Wikipedia-Artikel zum Thema, dem ich ein paar neue, mir bisher unbekannte Daten entnahm. Sprache: fr

Erste Ausgabe. - Franz von Zeiller (1751-1828), der bedeutendste österreichische Jurist, seit 1778 Professor in Wien und seit 1797 Mitglied des österreichischen Gesetzgebungskommission, nimmt im gesamteuropäischen Rahmen eine eminent wichtige Rolle durch seine Leistungen als Gesetzgeber ein. Das auf josephinisch-naturrechtlicher Grundlage geschriebene österreichische ABGB gilt zu Recht neben dem Code civil als die bedeutendste kodifikatorische Leistung im 19. Jahrhundert. Es trat 1812 in Kraft und wurde erst durch die drei Teilnovellen während des ersten Weltkrieges wesentlich verändert. Neben dem Code Napoléon, dem Preussischen Landrecht, dem Schweizerischen Zivilgesetzbuch sowie den bayerischen und württembergischen Territorialrechten gehört es zu den wichtigeren Partikularrechten, die in der Vorbereitung des BGB von 1900 wissenschaftlich diskutiert wurden. Mit diesem Gesetzbuch hat die Rechtslehre von Immanuel Kant Einzug in die Legislative gehalten. Das Gesetzeswerk, das noch heute Gültigkeit hat, wurde 1811 verabschiedet, im gleichen Jahr erschien der umfangreiche Kommentar, der jedoch keine Erläuterung des Werkes darstellt, sondern ein Motiv- und Protokollbuch zur Entstehungsgeschichte des ABGB. - Auf kräftiges Papier gedruckt. Meist leicht gebräunt, 2 Titelblätter mit Kugelschreibersignatur. Exlibris Theo Mayer-Maly. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
