        Vom Beruf unsrer Zeit für Gesetzgebung und Rechtswissenschaft.

      Heidelberg, bey Mohr und Zimmer, 1814.. 8vo. 2 Bll., 162 S. Neuer Halbledereinband. (getilgter St.a.T., Papier an dieser Stelle etw. schwach).. Erste Ausgabe der berühmten Streitschrift zur Kodifikationsfrage, zugleich die programmatische Grundschrift der historischen Rechtsschule! - Im Frühjahr des Jahres 1814 forderte der große Pandektist und Heidelberger Professor Thibaut (1772-1840) in einer kleinen Schrift eine Kodifikation des deutschen Rechts. Nach dem Code civil von 1804 und dem Österreichischen Allgemeinen Gesetzbuch (ABGB) von 1811 lag die Frage und der Streit einer nationalen Kodifikation in Deutschland geradezu in der Luft. Eine rasche Antwort von Savigny (1779-1861) war von großer Wichtigkeit, zumal in Berlin Gerüchte kursierten, man wolle auf dem Wiener Kongress das ABGB von Österreich auch in Deutschland einführen. Der Code Napoleon war teilweise geltendes Recht in einigen Gebieten Deutschlands. Gewaltig war das Aufsehen, als Savigny bereits im Herbst 1814 eine Gegenschrift zu Thibauts Forderungen vorlegte, gerade war der Wiener Kongress nach dem Abdanken Napoleons zusammengetreten. Es wurde die berühmteste und auch folgenreichste juristische Streitschrift, die Deutschland erleben sollte. "Vom Beruf unserer Zeit" war eine auch von seinen Kritikern anerkannte glänzende Schrift, mit der Savigny zugleich die Vorschläge von Thibaut aus der öffentlichen Diskussion verbannte, damit die geforderte Kodifikation verhinderte und zugleich die programmatische Niederschrift der historischen Rechtsschule vorlegte. Grundlage seiner Anschauung war, daß nicht die gesetzte Willkür des Staates Recht erzeuge, sondern "innere, stillwirkende Kräfte", also eine Art von Volksgeist, der die Gesellschaft eine juristische Seele einhaucht, die zu erblicken und niederzuschreiben des Juristen Handwerk und Kunst, eben ihr "Beruf" sei.

      [Reading, PA: C. F. Egelmann Folio (35 x 25.5 cm; 13.75" x 10.125") [1] p.. 1814 and later] The engraver Egelman (1782–1860) is credited by Stopp with producing => the first engraved Taufschein (birth/baptismal certificate), an example of which is offered here. The certificate is for Caroline Buchler, daughter of L.F. and Sara (Wagner) Buchler, born 8 August 1843 in Tamaqua, Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. The minister is simply identified as Oberfeld. The cataloguer at the Penn State University library describes its uncolored example: "The form is generally dated ca. 1830, but could have been in use as early as 1814. The lower design depicts Jesus with the disciples, while the upper scene shows Jesus' baptism. The form stretches between two pillars, flanked by columns of smoke, all within line border. Distinctive mix of [stipple] engraving and etching, probably on copper plate, by Egelmann." => The present copy is handsomely hand-colored and the blanks for names, dates, and places accomplished nicely in red ink in a clear hand. Excellent repair to a lower area into the image; other repairs to the margins. Bug spotting in lower outer corner.

        Picturesque Representations of the Dress and Manner of the Turks

      London: John Murray, Albemarle Street; Printed By W. W. Bulmer and Co., 1814. First. Hardcover. Very Good. Book. v pp (preface), followed by 59, of 60 hand-colored plates called for. Missing Plate 1, "The Kislar Aga". Each plates accompanied by English description on separate leaf. Plates measure 10 by 6.5 inches (book is large octavo). Plates include Sultana or Odalisk, ladle-bearer, musician, first dragoman, the mufti, a Jew, a dervise, a Tartar, and on and on. They are both entertaining, both to gaze at and to read about, and they bring alive the past of a radically different world from the present in a way that no dry historical tome or even a diverting historical novel can do alone. The red half leather is a crude morocco and has some chipping, cracks and wear. Gilt title on spine is likewise only functional, and while bright, is not appealing. Leather is over marbled boards which have some wear but are acceptable. Binding is tight. Plates and text pages with some light soilage scattered but for the most part they can be described as just acceptably age toned. Preliiminary pages have a bit more foxing. Other than missing plate, a very good copy.

Complete set of dissertations written by Fallén and published between 1814 and 1826. Apart from the 45 dissertations there are 2 printed titles for vol. 1 and 2 with dedications. Two dissertations 'Supplementum Dipterorum I & II' are dated 1826./Evenhuis in his 'Litterature Taxonomica Diptorum' pp. 253-262 gives an exact collation of the dissertations with the following note: 'The works listed below constitute the complete works collectively referred to as Fallen's 'Diptera Sveciae'. They are essentially works written by Fallén and defended by students (much the same as Linnaeus' and Thunberg's dissertations). Authorship of new taxa found in these works is attributed to Fallén alone. The entire series was subsequently bound as a separate edition in 2 volumes..." The present dissertations contain all their original printed titles. Our set contains an extra printed title of the first volume with a wrong date (1814-1827). Carl Fredrik Fallén (1764-1830) was a Swedish entomologist and professor of natural history in Lund. A rare complete set.//Evenhuis pp. 253-262.

Boards quite worn, rubbed and bumped; rebacked in beige linen. Slight dampstaining to lower inner corner; lower outer corners soiled and occasionally slightly frayed; several upper outer corners creased; some small tears and stains. . A later issue of Simrock's 1793 edition, with numerous pages re-engraved. Köchel 6 p. 712. Hoboken 12, 558 (with older version of p. 120, lacking plate number). RISM M4780 (three copies in the U.S., not distinguishing among issues). The leaf between the title and first page of music, present in this issue, was not part of the 1793 edition. Its footnote, advertising full scores of Die Zauberflöte, Idomeneo, and Die Entführung aus dem Serail, allows for the dating of the present copy. Simrock published the first edition of the full score of Die Zauberflöte in 1814. Most plates used in this issue are from the 1793 printing of the work (with occasional corrections). These plates are characterized by the combination of an old-style, semicircular bass clef, an inclined violin (G) clef, and the long s in text underlay. Five pages (3, 7, 18, 19, 124) have been re-engraved using the old bass clef but a modern, upright violin clef; however, while page 124 dispenses with the long s, the other four pages retain it. Two more re-engraved pages (22 and 126) have a modern, spiral-shaped bass clef and a modern violin clef but still the long s; one more page (108) combines an inversed old-style bass clef with a modern violin clef and the short s. Finally, 22 pages (5, 6, 11, 20-21, 40-41, 56, 75, 86-87, 104-6, 112, 120, 125, 128, 130, 141, and 143-44) have the two modern clefs and also the short s, probably representing the most recent stage. In the course of these replacements, the text underlay of the 1793 edition, which follows Mozart's autograph, has been supplanted with that of the edition of the full score of 1814 in three numbers: Tamino's aria, "Dies Bildnis ist bezaubernd schön" (now "So reizend hold, so zaubrisch schön"); the duet of Pamina and Papageno, "Bei Männern, welche Liebe fühlen" (now "Der Liebe holdes Glück empfinden"); and Sarastro's aria "In diesen heil'gen Hallen" (first line identical to both versions). It may be assumed that the respective pages, all representing the "most recent stage" described above, were engraved only after the full score had been issued. It has been argued that Simrock obtained a copy of this version of the libretto from Constanze Mozart and that it represents the original one ( Freyhan: The Authentic Magic Flute Libretto: Mozart's Autograph or the First Full-Score Edition?). The table of contents, however, presents the text incipits of the autograph only. A peculiar detail of the Simrock vocal score, present in the first issue, is the replacement of the famous high Fs in the aria of the Queen of the Night, "Der Hölle Rache," with Ds, causing awkward dissonances. It would seem that this was originally a transcription error, but it was never corrected. The arranger of this score, Friedrich Eunike (1764-1844), was a tenor who had performed the role of Tamino.

        Mangrove Tree

      0 - This watercolor on paper is from a collection of watercolors and drawings that depicts the natural history (flora and fauna) of Guiana, dating to the early 19th century. The collection appears to pre-date the expeditions of Sir Robert Hermann Schomburgk, a German-born explorer for Great Britain who executed geographical, ethnological and botanical studies in various parts of the world in the 1830s and 40s. He traveled to South America, the West Indies, the Dominican Republic and Thailand. Fragments of a manuscript text accompanied these unsigned works of art, suggesting an English author with Guyanese subject matter. Important to note, the colonies of Berbice and the United Colony of Demerara and Essquibo were ceded to Britain in 1814, and unified as British Guiana in 1831. 6.5 x 7.5 in

        Patronage

      London: for J. Johnson and Co.,, 1814. 4 volumes, duodecimo (168 × 105 mm). Contemporary half calf, smooth spines, red morocco labels, gilt acorn motifs in compartments, marbled sides. Contemporary "Ingleborough" inscriptions (Ingleborough Hall, North Yorkshire) to front pastedowns. Rather worn in places, two headbands visible, spines with some vertical creases, that of vol. I with crack towards foot, still a good tight set. First edition of Maria Edgeworth's longest and most complex novel, which draws on a wide range of sources, including 17th-century English political intrigue and the philosophical quest for a universal language. A rough draft was complete by early 1791, and a revision of the whole accomplished between November 1793 and the following May. As the ultimate dénouement of the published novel (set almost entirely in England) involves a repercussion of the Irish rising of 1798, this dimension of the work may be assigned to Edgeworth's taking the manuscript with her to England in 1799.

        Hog Hunters Meeting by Surprise a Tiger and Her Cubs

      - A detailed hand-colored aquatint engraving by Edward Orme from his series “Foreign Field Sports, Fisheries, Sporting Anecdotes” published in London in 1814. The dimensions of this print are 16 ½” x 23”. William Orme was a talented landscape painter, who exhibited at the Royal Academy between 1797 and 1819. Aquatint with hand coloring by watercolor was the most popular technique for works showing the colors and the varied landscapes and architectural sites of India. Orme issued this beautifully produced group of sporting prints issued in 1814. These vivid prints are based on drawings by popular English artists, such as Samuel Howitt and J.A. Atkinson. The series depict various sporting and hunting scenes from around the world, the Orme sporting prints depicted here are of India. The work gave the British public a first-view of one of the most exotic, mysterious and beautiful places within the Empire. In addition to “Foreign Field Sports, Fisheries, Sporting Anecdotes “ and his celebrated “Views of Hindostan”, Orme was involved in several other publications including J. Walker’s “The Itinerant” (1799), Francis William Blagdon’s “A Brief History of Ancient and Modern India” (1806) and F.B. Solvyn’s “The Costumes of Hindostan” (1805). This print is in very good condition overall with some foxing/staining in margins and a small tear to the bottom margin.

The first five were listed in 1814 (this first plate being in the issue for 2 July 1814), and the first edition gives the year 1814 in the title.

        View of Sydney in New South Wales (Taken from Bell Mount)

      London: James Whittle & Richard Holmes Laurie, 1814. Engraving on paper, 290 x 430 mm., in fine condition, framed. This fine engraving is by Laurie and Whittle, who were well-known London publishers of maps and charts. In 1814 they published a 'Catalogue of Perspective Views Coloured for the Shew Glass or Diagonal Mirror'. This catalogue comprised topographical views from around the world and included just three engravings of the new settlement in New South Wales - two of Sydney and one of Parramatta. All three prints were based on original watercolours prepared by John Eyre.Although an exact location cannot be pinpointed, this view was probably not as frequently presumed present-day Bellevue - Hill, but taken from the Vaucluse area, looking down the Harbour to the city.The engraving was based on a drawing Eyre originally prepared for colonial entrepreneur Absalom West, who published a series of views of the colony in 1813-14. In all West issued 24 views, of which 14 were after Eyre's original drawings.John Eyre arrrived in the colony as a convict in 1801 and, following his pardon in 1804, received various artistic commissions from Governors King, Bligh and Macquarie. However it is for the views of the east and west sides of Sydney Cove which were published as aquatints in David Mann's, 'The Present Picture of New South Wales in 1811, that Eyre is best known.
