        Diario Ecclesiastico para o Reino de Portugal Principalmente para a Cidade de Lisboa, para o Anno de 1813

      Lisbon, 1813. 32mo. (157)pp., + folding map. An elegant embroidered hand-calendar, giving Feast Days, a Court Calendar, phases of the moon, eclipses, lists of kings, bishops, cardinals, and more. Includes the lineage of the Royal Family. Frontispiece is an engraved, hand-colored folding map of Portugal. In a white satin embroidered binding with gold threads, sequins, and silver wire. Both front and back covers are bordered with open floral interlace. In the center of the front is the coat of arms of the Portuguese royal family, surmounted by a crown. On the back is a diminutive scene showing the Tower of Belém. The Tower, still standing today, played an important role in the Age of Discoveries and is a shining example of Manueline architecture in Lisbon.

Housed in a gilt-decorated leather pull-off case, with the royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom and another crest showing two crossed trumpets, wreathed and surmounted with a lyre.

        Die letzten Gründe von Recht, Staat und Strafe philosophisch und nach den Gesetzen der merkwürdigsten Völker rechtshistorisch entwickelt.

      Gießen, bey Heyer, 1813. 8vo. 9 Bll., 590 S. Zeitgenössischer Pappband. (mit schönem Rotschnitt, Papier leicht stockfleckig). Erste Ausgbe. - Wichtigster und auch populärster liberaler Jurist im 19. Jahrhundert. Durch sein Auftreten im badischen Landtag (1833-1848) und vor allem durch sein Wirken im Paulskirchenparlament erlangte Welcker (1790-1868) ausserordentliche Popularität. Sein Engagement entwickelte sich bald mehr auf dem praktisch-politischen Feld als in der Herausgabe wissenschaftlicheer Literatur. Grosse Bedeutung erlangte diese programmatische Frühschrift, in der er das Vernunftrecht gegen die immer dominanter werdende historische Rechtsschule von Savigny und vor allem gegen Hegel verteidigte. Welcker sah im Vernunftrecht die natürliche Verbindung historischer, politisch-pragmatischer und vernunftrechtlicher Argmente. Das Vernunftrecht sichert die wahre Freiheit und die sittliche Selbstbestimmung des Menschen. In diesem Sinne nimmt Welcker in diesem Werk eine umfassende Straftheorie, die sowohl philosophisch als auch rechtshistorisch begründet ist. Versand D: 2,00 EUR

Paris, Delespinasse, Delaunaux, Nepveu, l'Auteur, 1813.

      1813. 8vo.

Contemp. wrappers. First edition of the first French manual on the art of ice-skating, charmingly illustrated with engraved plates. At the end a short dictionary of ice-skater's terminology is added. The book is dedicated to Mademoiselle Gosselin, first dancer at the Imperial Academy of Music. The author, Jean Garcin, was far ahead of his time. His book, laying special emphasis on the aesthetic side of ice-skating, remained unique and was not republished for nearly forty years, when the subject finally became interesting to the general public. The book is still a jewel, describing all the various ice-skating figures and combinations in full and giving a complete account of the most advanced stage of skating lore. It was one of the earliest separate works devoted entirely to blade-skating in any language. - Spine slightly damaged, some plates misbound. A fine copy. Foster, Bibliography of Skating, 35. Cf.

Eine Bittschrift die von den wohlthätigen Händen der Menschenliebe und Güte dem großen Kaiser übergeben wird, kann ihren Zweck nicht verfehlen und Ruhe und häusliches Glück wird einer höchst unglücklichen Familie und einer Frau, die zu einer Zeit ihren Mann verliert, wo sie stündlich ihrer Entbindung entgegen sieht, wiedergegeben werden.

        Arabia. London, 1813.

      1813. Hand-coloured engraved map (775 x 554 mm). Stunning large format map of Saudi Arabia, the Persian Gulf, Red Sea and vicinity. The map is dominated by the Great Desert and Province of Neged. Marvelous detail of the mountains, rivers etc. Highly detailed regional map, one of the best regional maps of the area to appear in an English Atlas during the period. Pinkerton's now rare elephant folio atlas is one of the best engraved works of the period. While lesser known than the more common atlases by Cary & Thomson, it is a superior work, especially in the detail of the maps. Not in Tibbets, Al-Qasimi and Al Ankary.

There is scattered light foxing and neat contemporary ownership inscriptions on title-page of each volume.

        Essay on the Cause of Chemical Proportions, and on some Circumstances Relating to them: together with a short and easy way of expressing them" in Annals of Philosophy, or Magazine of Chemistry, Mineralogy, Mechanics, Natural History, Agriculture and the Arts 3 (III), pp. 443-454, 1813 and 3 pp. 51-62, 93-106, 244-255, 353-364, 1814 WITH "Experiments on the Nature of Azote, of Hydrogen, and of Ammonia, and upon the Degrees of Oxidation of which Azote is susceptible" in Annals of Philosophy, or Magazine of Chemistry, Mineralogy, Mechanics, Natural History, Agriculture and the Arts 2 (II), pp. 276-284 and 357-368, 1813

      HANDSOMELY BOUND FIRST EDITIONS OF BERZELIUS'S DEVELOPMENT OF A SYSTEM OF SYMBOLS THAT FORMED THE BASIS OF THE MODERN LANGUAGE OF CHEMISTRY. Beginning in 1813 and with the paper "Essay on the Cause of Chemical Proportions", Berzelius published his first essay on the proportions of elements in compounds. "The essay commenced with a general description, introduced his new symbolism, examined all the known elements, included a table of specific weights and finished with a selection of compounds written in his new formalisation" (Wikipedia). "Following the precedent set by Linneaus, who assigned a definitive Latin name to every plant and animal, Berzelius adopted - or invented - Latin terms for the elements whenever possible. He took the first letter of this name (capitalised) as its atomic symbol, adding a distinguishing second letter (in lower case) for elements with the 'Berzelius adopted- or invented - Latin terms for the elements' Dalton's list of atomic and molecular symbols same initial. To iron he gave the symbol Fe, from ferrum - the metal's name in Latin. The Romans never knew metallic sodium, but they called common soda (sodium carbonate) natron, and from this Berzelius coined the name natrium for the element, giving its atom the symbol Na. Having organised the elements, he then tried to create a notation for compounds which revealed their chemical nature, as well as their constituent elements. "This task proved more difficult, and Berzelius (and others) went on adjusting the system for years. At first he indicated the numbers of atoms with superscripts, so that sulfur dioxide was written SO2. Later, he tried denoting oxygen atoms by dots over the symbol of the oxidised element, representing sulfur dioxide as - though eventually, the numerical subscript version (SO2) became the standard form. At first, many chemists were not impressed by the Berzelian symbols - Dalton himself hated them. For some years even Berzelius did not use the symbols extensively in his publications, but by the mid-century they were generally accepted. Today, they still provide us with the tools for representing elements and compounds unknown to Berzelius and his contemporaries. "Outside the laboratory, Berzelius' life was relatively uneventful. He travelled widely in his later years, was honoured by foreign universities and learned societies, and continued to take an interest in research after his retirement in 1832. In 1835 he married Elizabeth Poppius (an old friend's daughter), and received the title of Baron from the Swedish monarchy. He died in 1848, four decades after being elected to Sweden's Royal Academy of Science in the eventful year of 1808" (Sutton, Chemistry World, Nov. 2008). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: C. Baldwin. 4to. Volume II: [vii], 480 pages, [4]. 7 plates. Volume III: [viii], 480 pages, [4]. 5 plates.

        Printed naval patent signed ("Np"). Le palais des Tuileries [Paris], 25. III. 1813.

      1813. 490 x 350 mm. Blank form. Naval patent for an unidentified American boat, counter-signed by trade secretary Jean-Baptiste Henry Collin (1776-1837), state secretary Pierre Antoine Noël Bruno comte Daru (1767-1829), naval secretary Denis Decrès (1761-1820), and the director general of customs. Fine document from the age of the Napoleonic Wars, when the English army had occupied the Iberian Peninsula, fighting against Napoléon's troops, and field marshal Wellington was about to commence his final (and ultimately successful) attack. The present letter patent was issued by the French consul in Charlestown, New York, Boston or Baltimore and permitted American ships to move more or less freely toward France. The British warships were blocking the U.S. ports and obstructing American trade with France - one of the causes for the War of 1812, not resolved until December 1814. - Large reinforced tears to folds; slight edge damage, otherwise in good condition. Left edge trimmed, touching the printed text of the counter-leaf.

Édition originale du tout premier ouvrage à traiter de patinage artistique en langue française publié alors que cette activité commence à être pratiquée comme une distraction par les membres des aristocraties européennes après avoir constitué une nécessité dans certaines régions très lacustres. Il avait été précédé par des traités en anglais, dont le plus connu, mais aussi le plus rare, est celui de Robert Jones. Il faut dire que les Britanniques, spécialement les Ecossais, furent des précurseurs dans ce domaine : le premier club de patinage est apparu à Edimbourg en 1742 (Edinburgh skating club). En France, c'est Marie-Antoinette qui introduisit cette activité à la Cour de Versailles. Petite restauration en marge de la première planche.

        The Life of Nelson.

      London: John Murray, Bookseller to the Admiralty and to the Board of Longitude,, 1813. 2 volumes, octavo, (182 x 106 mm). Contemporary russia, decorative gilt and blind tooled spines, sides with concentric gilt and blind tooled panels (including interlocking "drawer-handle" tools), gilt roll-tool turn-ins, marbled edges and endpapers. Engraved portrait frontispiece to volume I, frontispiece of volume II with five facsimile signatures. Eton "leaving gift" inscription on a preliminary blank in volume I: "From Ld Marsham to J. Farquharson Jun[io]r on his leaving Eton, July 26th 1824": Charles Marsham (1777-1845), second Earl of Romney. Joints partially spilt but firm, touch of foxing to frontispieces. A very good copy, with the half-titles. First edition, large paper copy, of which there were only 500 sets published. Elegantly written and surprisingly even-handed on the issue of the Neapolitan Jacobins, "Southey constructed an early-nineteenth century hero as a model for the young - in his words, a 'patriotic manual.' He told a friend that he would write 'such a life of Nelson as shall be put into the hands of every youth destined for the Navy'" (Roger Knight, The Pursuit of Victory,2006, p.542); as it most assuredly was, and many more besides, coming to dominate the Nelson biography market and perpetually in print. A very pretty set.

        Select Views in Great Britain

      Letterpress title, advertisement leaves in English and French with fifty-three copper engraved plates, (as called for), with English and French descriptions. Contemporary, full, straight-grain green morocco, wide flat bands, spine in five panels, title in gilt to second panel, remaining panels with volute corner pieces which join making up a frame, covers with wide Greek key style border, gilt roll to inner edges, a.e.g. Some rubbing to extremities, a few scrapes and dinks to covers, corners bumped. Internally some light browning and foxing throughout, some offsetting, though many plates are very clean and bright. Seemingly first issued in parts in the late eighteenth century, Oxford has a copy described as , presumably with six plates in each part, giving a total of forty-eight, this edition with an extra five plates, all of which were published in 1813. Usually found bound in landscape format, this copy bound in portrait, lacks the half-title found in some copies. Samuel Middiman (1750-1831) "was apprenticed in 1767 to William Byrne (1743-1805), an engraver who had studied with Aliamet and Wille in Paris, and who worked for Boydell in the later 1760s. Middiman is also said to have worked with Woollett and Bartolozzi. He exhibited at the Free Society of Artists in 1771 and showed drawings and prints with the Society of Artists from 1772 to 1777, giving addresses in St James's Square and then Wells Street, Oxford Road. In 1780-82 and 1795-7 he exhibited drawings and stained drawings at the academy, giving addresses in Margaret Street, Winchester Row, and Warren Place. On 5 April 1788 he married Martha Woodyer at St Pancras. Middiman produced three large plates and one smaller illustration for the Shakspeare Gallery. As a specialist landscape etcher his skills were much in demand, and he is said to have worked on many plates issued under the sole name of other engravers, for instance John Pye. He produced the fifty-three plates for Select Views in Great Britain (1814) and sixteen plates for Picturesque Castles and Abbeys in England and Wales (1807-11). About 1812 he gave up engraving and appears to have turned to landscape painting, exhibiting pictures at the British Institution in 1810-11 and again in 1824. He died on 20 December 1831 at Cirencester Place, Westbourne Park" (Oxford DNB)
