Bunsen, Robert Wilhem, Chemiker (1811-1899).
Prächtiger Brief an seinen Kollegen, den Chemiker Wilhelm Dellfs (1812-1894) in Heidelberg. Bunsen wartete auf eine Mitteilung aus Karlsruhe wegen seiner Berufung nach Heidelberg, die noch im selben Jahr erfolgte: "Ich habe von Woche zu Woche mit meinem Dank für Ihre letzte Mittheilung in der Erwartung gezögert, Ihrem freundlichen Wunsch zu entsprechen, und Ihnen etwas Neues über den Stand der bewußten Angelegenheit mittheilen zu können. Ist nun auch von Carlsruhe aus nichts weiter erfolgt, und bleibt es mir immerhin sehr zweifelhaft, ob man dort überhaupt noch auf meine Person reflektiert, so habe ich doch nichts versäumen wollen, was mir auf jede Eventualität hin für die Zukunft hier freie Hand verschaffen kann. Ich habe zu diesem Zweck bei meiner letzten Anwesenheit in Berlin dem Geh. R. u. Ministerialreferenten J. Scholze gesprächsweise die Thatsache mitgeteilt, daß meine sämmtlichen Plätze im Laboratorium in den 2 Semestern meines Hierseins ausschließlich an Ausländer vergeben gewesen seien, und daß auch v. Siebolds Erfahrungen über den wenig wissenschaftlichen Sinn der Schlesier die meinigen nur bestättigten. Wenn sich bei mir die Überzeugung befestige, daß man in Breslau mit geringeren Kräften als den meinigen ausreiche, so möge er sich darauf gefaßt machen, daß ich eintretenden Falles unter keinen Umständen dort bleiben werde. Will man, wie Sie meinen, warten, und reflektiert man dabei wirklich noch auf mich, so dürfte sich die Sache am Einfachsten erledigen, wenn man mir unter der Hand für die nächsten Pfingstferien einen Ort zwischen Carlsruhe und Frankfurt zu ein … [Click Below for Full Description]

1812. Liverpool, Sheffield, London, Castle Donington, other locations, Great Britain; New York City, NY: January 1, 1812-August 29, 1812. Approx. [64] manuscript pages. 7 x 4½ inches. Blankbook, homemade; 18 bifoliums, sewn as single signature; later linen tie; corners bumped with some losses to a few words, not affecting sense. Sewn into modern plain wrappers. Clearly legible; very good. On New Years' Day, 1812, the diarist arrives in Liverpool after a thirty-one day sail from New York City on the sloop Orbit. Upon arriving, he called on Abraham Binns, a leather merchant, with whom he walks to the home of his son, Thomas Binns in Mile End, about a mile and a half away. There our diarist was received by Thomas' wife, Hannah Salthouse, a member of the Religious Society of Friends or Quakers; and all are later joined by George Binns, brother of Thomas. The Binns were active in the Anti-Slavery Society in Liverpool. Thus begins an 8-month sojourn, which is spent in the company of Quakers, many of them merchants. Although a merchant preoccupied with purchases and the prompt settlement of his accounts, our diarist was also interested in the political affairs of the country. He "...went to the House [of] Commons...Sir F[rancis] Burdett rose to make a motion respecting millitary flogging spoke near 1½ hours. Mr. Manners Sutton replied then a Mr. Abercromby then [various others including Secretary at War Lord Palmerston]...the house decided there was for the FB motion 6 against 79."

GEISLER (OR GEISSLER), Maria. fl. 1812
Vienna: Maria Geisler, 1812. Contemporary light green glazed paper boards with a ropework roll for an outer frame, ochre endleaves, gilt-ruled flat spine (hinges rubbed), gilt-lettered red paper label, all edges gilt. The Austro-Hungarian capital in your pocket - her only view book. All but two of the finely executed and colored plates are in their first or only state. Certainly among the most famous prints are the ten of theater and opera houses, the Imperial Riding School and Christoph de Bach's Circus - one of the first such entertainments in Europe to have permanent quarters (a hexadecagon accommodating 3000 spectators). We find ruins, spas, gardens, parade grounds, a swim club, an obelisk, private residences, government buildings, churches, coffee houses, porcelain and weapons factories, hospitals (for the poor and for the wealthy), a canal lock, painting galleries, scenes from outlying villages, the Danube bristling with traffic and pastoral vistas. The suite can be dated after the publisher's address, 1200 Graben, cut in seventy-three of the plates. Likely issued later and not present here, the two double-page views repeat the numeration of plates in the main series. Two plates have been cut out and neatly mounted on the paper stock of the edition (nos. 89 and 99). I have not located a set outside Austria. Individual prints were, and are, offered sale. In good condition. ¶Nebehay & Wagner, Bibliographie altösterreichischer Ansichtenwerke 193.

CHARLES DICKENS
CHARLES DICKENS (1812-1870). Dickens, a beloved English writer, is best remembered for A Tale Of Two Cities, Oliver Twist, David Copperfield, Great Expectations and A Christmas Carol. ALS. 1pg. 5" x 8". October 13, 1865. London. An autograph letter signed "Charles Dickens" to Edward Eastwick, a British diplomat who wrote to Dickens. Dickens wrote on the colorful letterhead of "Office of All the Year Round", Dickens' weekly publication: "I wish to give each of your papers a separate name so that each may seem, for the time being, complete. Will you let me know what title you would prefer for your first chapter, and will you let me have some more manuscript to send to the printer? It is unnecessary to remark, perhaps, that when you collect your papers, you can either use these separate headings as titles of chapters, or abolish them altogether.". The original mailing envelope, in Dickens's handwriting, is included. The letter is in fine condition except for two light stains and a bit of ink offset.

Lewis & Clark
William Miltenberger. Hardcover 1812 Baltimore, 1812. 326pp. including two portraits. Original brown leather boards and spine. Front cover is separated from spine but all other pages and frontpieces are attached to spine. This appears to be the so-called "Apocrypha edition" of Lewis and Clark, bearing the name of compiler William Fisher on the titlepage. In response to the growing curiosity of the public regarding the findings of Lewis and Clark, and the delay in publication of the "authorized account" of their expedition, this compilation of bits and pieces from already published works appeared (culled from Gass, Clark, Mackenzie, Carver, and Jefferson's MESSAGE... of 1806), misleading the reader into believing it was the account sanctioned by the government and containing all the information gathered during the journey. Howes calls this the "spurious" edition, while Sabin states it contains material not published in any other edition. HOWES F153a. WAGNER-CAMP 8:5. GRAFF 1331. PILLING PROOF-SHEETS 1298. SABIN 24508.

A NOVEL. IN SIX VOLUMES. BY MISS BYRON, LONDON: PRINTED AT THE MINERVA-PRESS FOR A. K. NEWMAN AND CO 1812 Offered here is an extremely rare gothic novel by Medora Gordon Byron. It is her fourth novel recognised to have been published: only the British Library shown to be in posession of a printed copy of this title in the usual online databases. On the downside, we have only five volumes of six, our set lacking volume three. At some stage this third volume has become seperated from the set, might still be out there somewhere. On the plus side, it is in its original calf backed paper covered boards, edges rough trimmed, with labels for a contemporary circulation library. An extremely rare Minerva Press novel in a highly desirable state. Miss Byron, or Medora Gordon Byron, or Julia Maria Byron, whose identity is still a mystery, published either five or eight early-nineteenth-century novels with the Minerva Press, depending on whether or not they include those issued as by 'A Modern Antique'.

The monogram L.D. most probably stands for the architect Léon Dufourny (1754-1818), who was a professor at the Ecole dArchitecture. Liman was the son of the Jewish merchant and banker Abraham Nathan Liebmann (1767-1837), who baptized himself and his family in 1809 and adopted the name Carl August Liman. Louis-Théodore attended the French Gymnasium in Berlin, then made there a education as a master builder. In 1814, after studying in Paris, he went on a Grand Tour trip to Italy. In 1819 he returned to Berlin, where he became a professor at the building academy. He was commissioned to accompany the expedition of Heinrich Menu von Minutoli (1772-1846) to Egypt as an architect and draftsman. Already at the beginning of the journey, on December 11, 1820, Liman died in Alexandria as a result of illness. Bibliography: Nouvelle biographie générale. Vol. 31. Paris, 1860.

[Hodge, Arthur]
Middletown [Ct.]: Printed by Tertius Dunning, 1812. [2],186pp. Original rear drab board (spine perished and front board lacking). Minor foxing and occasional dampstaining to text. Good plus. Untrimmed. First American edition of the report of the groundbreaking trial of West Indian plantation owner Arthur Hodge for the murder of one of his slaves, after the London edition of 1811. Hodge, a prominent planter on Tortola in the British Virgin Islands, was notorious for the extreme brutality with which he treated his slaves. Between 1803 and 1811, the number of blacks on his estate diminished from 140 to thirty-five, a fact that neighbors reasonably attributed to Hodge's cruelties, which were known to include savage floggings, the forcing of boiling water down women's throats, and the dipping and resultant flaying alive of a child in a cauldron of scalding water. In 1811 the colonial court finally intervened, arresting Hodge for the 1807 murder of his slave, Prosper, whose punishment for allegedly stealing a mango from one of Hodge's trees consisted of a two-day cart- whipping that left "no black skin upon him remaining from his hips to his hands" (p.10) and finally resulted in his death. The prosecution's key witnesses included Stephen M'Keough, a former overseer of the plantation, and, most notably, Pereen Georges, a free black woman who had lived intermittently on Hodge's estate. The defense's main strategy of discrediting the witnesses easily failed, and Hodge was found guilty, sentenced to death, and hanged on May 8, 1811. The report, certified and submitted by Richar … [Click Below for Full Description]

Arrowsmith, A.
Arrowsmith, London, 1812. Very large linen backed map of Germany, nominally divided into 4 sections - each folded, but some parts are separated along the linen boundaries. Each small rectangle measures ca. 10 " x 12.5" or 25cm x 31cm for total width ca. 80" and height 81"- this is only approximate and estimated from the size of the individual rectangles. The bottom or southernmost sections are ca. half the height of the other rectangles and they do not extend the full width of the other rectangles. The is much color in the mountainous areas and many rivers- presumably in keeping with the title of the map- "Physical Divisions of Germany". The coloring appear to be early if not original, but faded and, perhaps spred over time. No library markings or earlier owner names observed, but there are a number of notes or markings which appear to be ink and pencil, off of the main map areas. The Library of Congress lists a map very much like this one with publication date of 1812 and folded size very much like this one. There is overall soiling of the map. Overall a fair to good copy with the main faults being the soiling and separation of the parts, but it appears to be complete. There are two stiff card covers in poor condition, which are the remnants of an old slipcase. Due to the size and weight, overseas shipping may be more expensive than an average book.
