        Poetic Passage of 7 Lines signed by H.B. Stowe.

      No date. - Harriet Beecher Stowe was born on June 14, 1811 at Litchfield, Connecticut.The first twelve years of her life were spent in the intellectual atmosphere of Litchfield, which was a famous resort of ministers, judges, lawyers and professional men of superior attainments. Stowe was catapulted to international fame with the publication of Uncle Tom's Cabin in 1851. Following publication of the book, she became a celebrity, speaking against slavery both in America and Europe. She wrote A Key to Uncle Tom's Cabin (1853) extensively documenting the realities on which the book was based, to refute critics who tried to argue that it was inauthentic; and published a second anti-slavery novel, Dred in1856. Very good condition with one vertical crease. Perhaps the endpaper from one of her books.One sheet of white laid paper with the following poem in Stowe's flowing hand and signed "H.B. Stowe": "Down to the future thu long generations The lengthened soundsgrow fainter, & then cease And like a bell, with solemn sweet vibrations The voice of Christ on earth shall whisper "Peace" (underlined) H.B. Stowe" Perhaps a reference to the end of America's War Between the States. Harriet Beecher Stowe was born on June 14, 1811 at Litchfield, Connecticut.

(leichte Bereibungen) mit schwarzem Rückenschild sowie reicher Blindprägung, Rücken- und Deckelvergoldung. Stehkantenvergoldung. Marmorpapiervorsätze.

      Heidelberg, Mohr und Zimmer, 1811. - Seltene erste Gesamtausgabe des Malerdichters. Müller (1749-1825) war einer der Hauptvertreter des Sturm und Drang. Enthält 'Adams erstes Erwachen', 'Satyr Mopsus', 'Die Schaaf-Schur', 'Balladen', 'Situation aus Fausts Leben', 'Fausts Leben dramatisirt', 'Niobe', 'Pfalzgräfin Genovefa', 'Golo und Genovefa' sowie Gedichte, davon einige im Erstdruck. "Tiecks Name bleibt bis heute mit den Erstausgaben von Novalis, Maler Müller, Kleist und Lenz engstens verbunden und nimmt in der Rezeptionsgeschichte dieser Dichter eine besondere Stellung ein . Es ist sicher richtig, Tiecks uneigennütziges Bemühen um das Andenken dieser Dichter als eine seiner dauerndsten Leistungen anzusehen; andere, weniger selbstlose Gründe haben ihn möglicherweise auch zu diesen Unternehmungen veranlaßt: Alle vier Dichter nahmen gewissermaßen eine Gegenposition zum späten Goethe ein . und . Müllers Werke zeugten davon, wie weit Goethe von seinen Sturm- und Drang-Anfängen abgewichen war. Schließlich lassen sich Verbindungen herstellen zwischen allen vier Dichtern und Tiecks eignem literarischen Bestreben: . Müller als der lebensnah-sinnenfrohe Idylliker . Zu einer direkten Konfrontation hat es Tieck nicht kommen lassen – teils aus taktischen Gründen, teils aus Achtung für Goethe. Für die Maler Müller-Ausgabe verfaßte er keine Vorrede und hat dadurch keinerlei Anlaß für unliebsame Erinnerungen von seiten Goethes gegeben" (Paulin, Metzler, 106 ff). – Mit den bei Schulte-Str. genannten Kartonblättern in den ersten beiden Bänden. Makelloses, sauberes Exemplar in der Vorzugsausgabe auf festem Velinpapier, die bibliographisch nirgends vermerkt ist. – Goed. IV 1, 900, 19a; Schulte-Str. 235, 10a. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Berlin, Realschulbuchhandlung, 1811. - Erste deutsche Ausgabe dieser Schauspiele, die Tieck übersetzte, weil er sie für Jugendarbeiten oder Urfassungen der bekannten Shakespeare-Dramen hielt. Denn Tieck ging von der Annahme aus, dass selbst ein Genie wie Shakespeare eine Entwicklung gehabt haben müsse, dass es also unbekannte Frühfassungen gebe, die er aus den beachtlichen Beständen von Dramen-Texten der Shakespeare-Zeit herauszufiltern suchte. 'König Johann von England' und 'Perikles, Fürst von Tyrus' sind heute als Shakespeare-Tragödien anerkannt. 'George Green, der Flurschütz von Wakefield' wurde dagegen von Robert Green verfaßt; 'Lokrine', 'Der lustige Teufel von Edmonton' und 'Das alte Schauspiel vom König Lear' gelten als Fehlzuschreibungen, die jedoch aus dem Shakespeare-Umkreis stammen. In den beiden Vorreden geht Tieck ausführlich auf die Entstehung der Werke ein. – Inhaltsverzeichnis und Personenverzeichnis zeitgenössisch handschriftlich eingetragen.

        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.

      Le Normant Paris 1811 - With 85 engravings on 64 sheets (9 folding), including portrait of Chardin, 18 sheets with double-illustrations and 1 sheet with 4, with additional large folding map of Asia with outline coloured by hand by P. Lapie, 1810, engraved by Blondeau, all protected with original tissue guards. Recent half-calf over marbled boards. Attractive, fresh example of the atlas, uncut, from the most desirable edition enhanced with new and larger plates. Printed on thick paper and extra-illustrated with a large hand-coloured map of the whole region. 'Chardin was a Huguenot who was forced to emigrate to England. He was knighted by Charles II and on his death was buried in Westminster Abbey. His first visit to the East was made in 1665, at the age of twenty-two, when he both gratified a love of travelling and carried on his trade as a dealer in jewels. His more important voyage was made in 1671. His route differed from that usually taken by travellers to the East Indies in that he proceeded by way of the Black Sea and the countries bordering thereon' (Cox I p 249-250). 'Chardin set out for Persia for a second time in August 1671, but on this occasion diverted through Smyrna and Constantinople, and took the Black Sea Route to Caucasia, Mingrelia and Georgia, finally arriving at Esfahan in June 1673. In Georgia he heard of a race of warlike women, the Amazons, who had at some time in the recent past invaded a kingdom to the northwest. He remained in Persia for four years, as he says 'chiefly following the court in its removals, but also making some particular journeys., as well as studying the language.' He apparently knew Esfahan better than Paris, and visited nearly every part of the country. His account of the Persian court and his business transactions with the shah are of considerable interest. In 1677 he proceeded to India, afterwards returning to France by way of the Cape of Good Hope' (Howgego C102); His second and more notable voyage to Persia, is important because it is in the account of this voyage that he describes life in late Safavid Persia' (Ghani p. 71). Includes, among others, lovely views of Tbilisi (Tiflis), Erevan, Ispahan, Persepolis as well as Georgian and Persian costumes, views of lavish palace rooms and the Coronation of Suleyman.

Ex-3 significant women collectors (bookplates) of élan who deserve snaps, Dorothy Stewart, Pamela Kingzett, and Sarah Peter, the last named of the 3, a modern goddess who gathered her 1st editions of fiction in English by women, 1 book at a time, and now stands tall with the greatest collection of them ever assembled. By anyone. Anywhere. Austen invented modern romantic comedy beginning with Sense and Sensibility, and started schooling 7 generations of readers about the intricate convolutions of affection. What they learned from it right away is that all tests of love end badly, that excitement and familiarity are hard to find in one person, that the first duty of love is to listen, and that when the heart speaks, the mind should know it's tacky to object. In the 20th century they came to understand that the only real proof of love is trust, that sometimes there are more differences within the genders than between them, that love must be transformed from the flame at first into the light that lasts, and that all men fall somewhere between apes and gods, and the best a wise woman can hope to do, is pick one that's traveling in the right direction. Now we're in the 21st century and a new generation of readers just balance Austen's charm against the realities of daily life, appreciating that "desperate" is not a sexual preference, that the fastest way to improve a relationship is to see love as a verb rather than a feeling, and that a woman can find a blunt equality with men by going to therapy, where she can talk about herself for an hour, just like a guy on a date.

His brother Charles Kemble also appeared in the performance advertised on this broadside. John was the second child of Roger Kemble, manager of the Warwickshire Company of Comedians. He was educated at Sedgley Park Catholic Seminary and the English college at Douai, France. John Kemble first appeared at the Royal Theatre, Drury Lane, as Hamlet in 1783, due in part to the fame of his sister Sarah Siddons.Cato, a Tragedy is a play written by Joseph Addison in 1712, a theatrical piece that emphasizes individual liberty (Marcus Porcius Cato Uticensis (95 BC April 46 BC) commonly known as Cato the Younger or Cato Minor) over tyranny (Gaius Julius Caesar July 100 15 March 44 BC). It was a popular play, one of Kemble's signature roles, and a play that George Washington had performed for the Continental Army while it was encamped at Valley Forge.

Small vignette of sheep on title-page. Minor worming in blank lower margin toward end. In good condition. (2 ll.), 88 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION? The first part (pp. 5-52) provides a very detailed account of how merino sheep are raised in Spain, with additional chapters on shearing and washing merino wool. The author then compares the efforts made in other European countries to raise merino sheep (pp. 53-71). He concludes with an account of how merino sheep were first introduced into the Crimea in 1803 and offers specific proposals for ensuring that the flocks grow and thrive, thus vastly improving the quality of wool available in Russia and the Ukraine (pp. 71-88).*** NUC: MB.

        Traité sur le Service de l'État-Major Général des Armées, contenant son objet, son organisation et ses fonctions, sous les rapports administratifs et militaires.

      A Paris, Chez Magimel, Réimprimé à St.-Petersbourg, Avec permission de la censure chez Alexandre Pluchart et Cie., 1811. Two volumes, 8vo. Contemporary worn, but stable Russian half-calf over marbled boards (not uniformly bound); pp. x, 195; [3, bound with half-title, but without title]-198, four large folding tables, one folding engraved table one folding engraved plan, pp.17/18 in volume II missing, very light browning occasionally, half-title of volume I with mid-19th-century printed shelfmark label of a Russian school. First Russian edition, and extremely rare. Grimoard's book on the organisation, strength structure and tactics of the Grande Armee had appeared in 1809 and is rather rare as well as it was probably destined for internal use only. When it became clear in Russia that Napoleon was about to attack the Russian Empire, the military needed enough copies of this book to prepare their staff for the encounter with Napoleon's forces. Not even the meticulous and near-contemporary French bibliographer Qérard, in La France littéraire ou dictionnaire bibliographique des savants (vol. III, p. 481) knows of this St. Petersburg edition. He lists a Braunschweig edition, published by Pluchart as well, which seems to exist.
