GEISLER (OR GEISSLER), Maria. fl. 1812
Maria Geisler, Vienna, 1812. 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. 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 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

BEUNAT, Joseph.
An important trade catalogue of furniture ornament and interior decorative designs manufactured by a patented process at Beunat's factory in Sarrebourg in Alsace. Beunat was the first to manufacture and distribute pre-fabricated moulded elements of ornamentation. His designs were in the French Empire style, pioneered by the architectural duo Percier and Fontaine. Beunat's trade catalogue shows about 800 decorative designs for friezes, panel ornaments, pilasters, columns, mouldings, candelabras, vases, heads, mythological figures and motives, rosettes, frames for pictures and mirrors, doorways, etc. There are also a handful of designs of entire rooms together with floor plans. The designs were offered in plasterwork as stucco decorations for interiors, but some must also have been offered in bronze as furniture ornament. The plates are finely detailed measured drawings. The present copy demonstrates Beunat's international ambitions. The plates and title-page are French, while the wrappers give all the necessary information in German. There is a German summary of the designs contained in the catalogue, as well as practical information indicating that the measurements are in French units, with a scale. There is also a reference to Beunat's "Erfindungs-Patent". We could not locate another copy with the German wrappers. Some of the plates are dated "1812", some "1813", the latest date is "18 December 1813". Plates 83 and 85 have neat manuscript additions in ink. Some of the plates were engraved by Louis Marie Normand, August Montferrand or A. P. Giraud.With the stamp of the Dona … [Click Below for Full Description]

DIOSCORIDES [=Pieter HARTING].
79, [1 blank] pp.Very rare second edition, published in the same year as the first, of an early Dutch science fiction novel, written by Pieter Harting (1812-1885), a Dutch biologist and early supporter of Charles Darwin's theories. While marvelling at the technological advances of the 19th-century, the main character suddenly finds himself in the year 2065, on a city square in "Londinia", the future London. There he meets a reincarnation of the 13th-century Roger Bacon, who guides him along a selection of several interesting scientific advancements. It was "the very first [literary] work to be translated [into Japanese] in the Meiji Era" (Lindberg-Wada), appearing in its first year 1868.With a small note about the author in pencil. Very slightly browned, some minor spots and the outer margins of the title-page slightly soiled, otherwise in good condition and wholly untrimmed.l NCC (6 copies of this ed. & 6 copies of the first); cf. G. Lindberg-Wada (ed.), Literary history: towards a global perspective I, p. 104.

The first volume describes the war in Poland and Russia in 1812, the second volume describes the revolt in Germany (The German Campaign) in 1813 and the third volume concentrates on 1814, when the German and Russian troops were in France.

MOLDENHAWER, Johann Jacob Paul.
Beyträge zur Anatomie der Pflanzen.Kiel, Königlichen Schulbuchdruckerei (printed by C.L. Wäser), 1812. 4to. With 6 engraved folding plates, 3 partly handcoloured. Contemporary half calf, gold-tooled spine, black spine label. xii, 335, [1] pp. Rare first edition of a botanical classic, the principal work of Johann Moldenhawer, published in 1812. This copy was part of the collection of the famous German botanist and explorer of Brazil Philipp von Martius (1794-1868), as the book-plate on the front pastedown shows. The Beyträge reflects the knowledge, acquired in the field of plant anatomy, during the period 1800-1812, when many new texts on the structure of plant organs were published and Moldenhawer made advances in his own research. This book contains important findings concerning plant anatomy, based on Moldenhawer's own experiments, where he isolated the cells and the vessels. "By completely isolating the cells and vessels in his preparations Moldenhawer demonstrated that the cell wall is closed on all sides. Moldenhawers Beiträge zur Anatomie der Pflanzen, the result of eighteen years of unremitting research on plant anatomy, reflects his critical insights and methodical observations, both in his own experiments and in his analysis of earlier and contemporary research on plant anatomy by others. This makes it a classic overview of the history of plant anatomy.With the bookplate of the explorer Philipp von Martius on the front paste-down. Some folds in the engraved plates not affecting the images, binding slightly rubbed and discoloured, head of the spine and foot of the … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lortzing, Albert, Komponist (1801-1851).
Sehr schönes, bisher ungedrucktes musikalisches Albumblatt für den Sänger und Komponisten Friedrich Krug (1812-1892), zum Abschied kurz vor dessen Berufung nach Karlsruhe, wo Krug 1839 Mitglied der Hofbühne und später großherzoglicher Musikdirektor wurde. Reich an literarischen Bezügen. - Lortzing zelebriert den Abschied des Freundes auf vielfache Weise: auf der Vorderseite des Albumblattes mit einer Notenzeile in drei Takten, darunter der Liedtext "Wiedersehn! auf Wiedersehn! lieber Krug! lieber Krug! lieber Krug!", darüber die Anweisung: "die Klarinetten blasen in B aus C Dur", von Lortzing unterzeichnet mit: "Albert Lortzing, glücklicher Autor des Liederspiels: der Pole u. sein Kind, wofür ihm der Baron v. Alvensleben das Honorar noch schuldig ist und Verfasser mehrerer Singspiele, die kein Theater geben will". - Umseitig ein inniger Freundschaftsbeweis in drei Zitaten aus der (damaligen) zeitgenössischen Literatur: "Ein gewißer Göthe sagt einmal: 'Die Menschen sind nicht nur zusammen, wenn sie beisammen sind, auch der Entfernte, der Abgeschiedene lebt in uns fort', und ich finde diese Worte gar nicht übel. Auch läßt sich ein gewißer Koetzebue folgendermaßen vernehmen: 'doch sind wir fern von einander, so bleiben die Herzen sich nah, und alle, ja alle wird's freuen, wenn Einem was Gutes geschah.' Auch nicht übel! ja, sogar sehr applicabel auf gegenwärtige Situation.

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]

Cheswell, Wentworth
Rockingham [New Hampshire]: n.p., 1812. Very good.. Printed Writ of Judgment with manuscript additions, signed by Cheswell in his capacity as Justice of the Peace for Rockingham County, New Hampshire. In a long career full of noteworthy accomplishments, Cheswell is perhaps most celebrated as one of two African-American men to sign New Hampshire's revolutionary Association Test document in April 1776, pledging to take up arms against the British at the risk of the signatories' lives and fortunes. As town messenger for the Committee of Safety, he, like Paul Revere, made a midnight ride from Boston to warn his townsfolk of the British invasion. He also enlisted for a short time in Col. John Langdon's Company to fight with the Continental Army. Cheswell, the author of an early archaeological report and an avid local historian, was also co-founder of the first library in Newmarket, and directed in his will that his personal library be kept together as a collection and lent to members of the public.The grandson of an enslaved man who became the first recorded Black property owner in New Hampshire, Cheswell held numerous offices in local government before becoming Justice of the Peace; his 1768 election as constable is now generally held to be the first election of an African American to public office. This writ describes the damages and fines owed to one Josiah Giles of Portsmouth by William Hooke in the matter of Giles v. Hook. A wonderful survival issued by the African-American founding father Wentworth Cheswell.

Amos Stoddard
Philadelphia: Matthew Carey, 1812. "The Indians believe in the existence of good and evil spirits, which roam, unperceived, the regions of the air; and this belief is general from Greenland to Patagonia. Hence on occasions of importance, they endeavor to deprecate the wrath of the one, and to invoke the propitious smiles of the other. This ceremony is performed by their physicians, who are also their priests or jugglers; it consists of a variety of grimaces and contortions; and in their profound reveries, they are supposed to converse with the spirits....The author of these sketches has seen an Osage juggler swallow an arrow, eighteen inches long, and there was no deception in this instance."

Front joint broken, white tape mend to interior hinge at Preface. This is an early 1800s reprint of the first two volumes of William Curtis' periodical "The Botanical Magazine." This publication proved so popular that plates from the earlier volumes were reissued to satisfy the demand of later subscribers who desired a complete set. Curtis featured some of the most decorative and popular imported plants in these early volumes, making these volumes an absolute treat for the eye. Plants include Moss Rose, several varieties of Iris, Daffodil, Gentian, Eastern Poppy, Cyclamen, and, from China: #64 Tawny Day-Lily; #25 China Pink, #42 Rose Camellia. These are very strong impressions, which are particularly pleasing contrasted against the white color of the wove paper.

Firenze, s. n., 1811. (Con:) Galleani Napione, G.F. - Capponi, Gino. Osservazioni sull'Esame critico del primo viaggio d'Amerigo Vespucci al Nuovo Mondo, Firenze, s. n., 1812. 2 volumi in-16, pp. 16; 33, entrambe in cartoncini azzurri coevi. Rari libelli, censiti in pochissime biblioteche italiane. Il primo testo era stato letto dal Canovai (1740-1788) all'Accademia Etrusca di Cortona il 15 ottobre 1788, suscitando un vivace dibattito, attribuendo a Vespucci il merito di scoperte ascritte invece a Colombo, nonché di esser giunto nelle Americhe un anno prima di questi. I due si conobbero comunque a Siviglia nel 1489. La seconda operetta fu pubblicata dal Capponi (1792-1876) , non senza spiccate rivendicazioni campanilistiche, durante il soggiorno fiorentino. In entrambe intervenì il Galleani Napione, storico in genere attendibile, ma che qui "con troppa frequenza per focoso amor patrio" sosteneva che Colombo fosse nativo di Cuccaro in Monferrato, oltre al suo primato nei confronti di Vespucci.  (Lievi aloni).    Cfr.

PFUEL, Ernst von].
1812. [1], [1 blank], [1], [1 blank], 32 pp.Dutch translation of a Russian account of the retreat of Napoleon’s Grande Armée from Russia in 1812. Probably originally written in German, this account was published in numerous versions in 1813 and 1814. Starting with the Moscow fire of September 1812, the account contrasts a chaotic French retreat with a well-planned combination of tactical retreat and pursuit by the Russians. Most of the account describes Russian victories over the French, with particular praise for Field Marshall Kutuzov, and the final part describes the horrors of the crossing of the Berezina and the final struggle to reach Prussian territory.A final passage probably unique to this Dutch edition draws an interesting contrast between the French bulletins presenting all activities in Russia as grand victories (when they were, in fact, disastarous) and the constant truthfulness of Russian accounts. The account ends with a list of 43 French generals now in Russian custody.With Amsterdam and most of the Netherlands abandoned by the French, the publisher Maaskamp (1769-1834) published numerous accounts of the recent events that had led to the French retreat all over Europe. Although sometimes attributed to the German dramatist and diplomat August von Kotzebue (1761-1816), the account was probably written by the Prussian Ernst von Pfuel (1779-1866) who served in the Russian army.With small fragments of the original blue paper wrapper on the spine.

BEUNAT, Joseph.
An important trade catalogue of furniture ornament and interior decorative designs manufactured by a patented process at Beunat's factory in Sarrebourg in Alsace. Beunat was the first to manufacture and distribute pre-fabricated moulded elements of ornamentation. His designs were in the French Empire style, pioneered by the architectural duo Percier and Fontaine. Beunat's trade catalogue shows about 800 decorative designs for friezes, panel ornaments, pilasters, columns, mouldings, candelabras, vases, heads, mythological figures and motives, rosettes, frames for pictures and mirrors, doorways, etc. There are also a handful of designs of entire rooms together with floor plans. The designs were offered in plasterwork as stucco decorations for interiors, but some must also have been offered in bronze as furniture ornament. The plates are finely detailed measured drawings. The present copy demonstrates Beunat's international ambitions. The plates and title-page are French, while the wrappers give all the necessary information in German. There is a German summary of the designs contained in the catalogue, as well as practical information indicating that the measurements are in French units, with a scale. There is also a reference to Beunat's "Erfindungs-Patent". We could not locate another copy with the German wrappers. Some of the plates are dated "1812", some "1813", the latest date is "18 December 1813". Plates 83 and 85 have neat manuscript additions in ink. Some of the plates were engraved by Louis Marie Normand, August Montferrand or A. P. Giraud.With the stamp of the Dona … [Click Below for Full Description]

And Sophia. And with Her Majesty’s permission dedicated to their Royal Highnesses by the Translator Ellis Cornelia Knight’ (p. [3]). Cornelia Knight (1757–1837)—novelist, poet, diarist, friend of Johnson (her first book, the novel Dinarbas (1790), was a sequel to Rasselas) and Nelson (his ‘charming poet-laureate’)—spent much of her long life abroad. In 1805, she was appointed companion, and reader, to Queen Charlotte, for whom she produced the present work, comprising prayers by Georg Friedrich Seiler and a handful of German hymns. ‘There was a good library at Frogmore of books in French, English, and German, and Queen Charlotte thoughtfully gave her lady a key to the bookcases so that she could borrow what she wished at any time [In 1811,] a work of Cornelia’s, entitled Chronological Abridgment of the History of France, appeared a similar volume on Spain had already come out in 1809.

The first volume describes the war in Poland and Russia in 1812, the second volume describes the revolt in Germany (The German Campaign) in 1813 and the third volume concentrates on 1814, when the German and Russian troops were in France. Most remarkable for the Dutch history is the fourth volume, which describes the defeat of Napoleon at Waterloo and his exile to Elba. With library stamps of the Hogere Krijgsschool Bibliotheek.

DIOSCORIDES [=Pieter HARTING].
79, [1 blank] pp.Very rare second edition, published in the same year as the first, of an early Dutch science fiction novel, written by Pieter Harting (1812-1885), a Dutch biologist and early supporter of Charles Darwin's theories. While marvelling at the technological advances of the 19th-century, the main character suddenly finds himself in the year 2065, on a city square in "Londinia", the future London. There he meets a reincarnation of the 13th-century Roger Bacon, who guides him along a selection of several interesting scientific advancements. It was "the very first [literary] work to be translated [into Japanese] in the Meiji Era" (Lindberg-Wada), appearing in its first year 1868.With a small note about the author in pencil. Very slightly browned, some minor spots and the outer margins of the title-page slightly soiled, otherwise in good condition and wholly untrimmed.l NCC (6 copies of this ed. & 6 copies of the first); cf.

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.

This design, which lost out to John Nash's, is distinct in having a square with a 'Public Building' in the centre of the street instead of the sweeping curve of today's Quadrant.

HARTING, Pieter.
1812. X, [2], 415, [1]; IX, [3], 356; XVII, [3], 542; VII, [1], 325, [30]; VIII, 176 pp.Special dedication copy of the first edition of an encyclopaedic work on the microscope by the Utrecht professor P. Harting (1812-1885), originally planned - as noted in the preface to the first volume - in three volumes, treating: (1) the theory and general description of the microscope, with 3 folding tables and 5 folding lithographed plates; (2) microscopic research, with 2 folding tables and 3 folding lithographed plates; (3) the history of the microscope and description of instruments used at the time. With 10 folding lithographed plates. Harting added the fourth volume in 1854 at the request of many readers, who felt the need for a more extensive treatment of microscopic research, so, the fourth volume is in fact a supplement to the second volume.With 2 endleaves detached, one together with 2 plates and the 1-leaf letterpress afterword, still attached to them. Very slightly browned, but still in very good condition. A very detailed view of the state of the art in microscopy in the 1850s, rarely found complete.l Bierens de Haan 1901 & 1903; Kernkamp, De Utrrechtse Univ. II (1815-1936), p. 129 & passim.

1812. MERCIER, Louis Sébastien L' anno due mila quattrocento quaranta. Sogno di cui non vi fu l'eguale. Seguito dall'Uomo di ferro. Opera del cittad. L.S. Mercier... Traduzione dal francese sull'ultima edizione fatta in Parigi l'anno VII della Repubb. francese, corretta, riveduta, ed aumentata dall'autore. Prima Edizione Italiana. In Genova, stamperia de' cittad.

Firma di possesso al frontespizio e tibro privato. Rara prima edizione italiana. Affascinante esemplare copiosamente annotato, studiato e commentato, anche con fogli interfoliati, da Giacomo Gera di Intra nel 1812. Romanzo utopico originalissimo, in cui si specchia, per molti versi, l'età illuministica nel suo complesso. Si tratta di un romanzo filosofico che si inscrive nel filone dell'utopia: si immagina che un uomo discuta animatamente con un amico filosofo circa la giustizia di Parigi. Dopo la discussione, l'uomo sprofonda nel sonno: si risveglierà solo nel... 2440. La Parigi del 2440 è in tutto e per tutto migliorata: il sistema della giustizia è stato ripensato, lo spazio pubblico riorganizzato, il clero è sparito (e così pure le prostitute, la schiavitù, le tasse, il caffè, il tabacco, il the, gli eserciti), gli eccessi di ricchezze e povertà sono stati soppressi, ovunque domina la razionalità, secondo un sogno tipicamente illuministico.
