        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.

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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [K620]. Clavier Auszug von Mozarts ZauberflÂœte fürs Clavier eingerichtet von Fridrich[!] Eunike Churfürstl: Cölnischen Hof-und Opern Sænger... Priz 18 Francs. Preis fl. 7 1/2. [Piano-vocal score]

      Bonn: Gestochen und herausgegeben von N: Simmrock Churfürstl: Cölnischen Hof- und Kammer Musikus [PN] 4. [ca. 1814]. Oblong folio. Early teal blue marbled boards with oval cut paper label to upper with titling in manuscript. 1f. (title with elaborate oval vignette by I. G. Pflugfelder depicting two disconsolate muses over Mozart's grave), 1f. (cast list, table of contents, with footnote advertising full scores of Die Zauberflöte, Idomeneo, and Die Entführung aus dem Serail), 3- 145, [i] pp. Engraved. Text in German. Signature of former owner "Pauline Grasemann" in brown ink to free front endpaper with biographical annotations below in a different hand in blue-black ink; signature "Auerbach" in pencil to upper right corner of title. 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.

        The Wanderer; or, Female Difficulties. By the author of Evelina; Cecilia; and Camilla. In five volumes.

      Longman et al 1814 - FIRST EDITION, with half-titles, advertisements, and with the terminal blank in vol. iii, but without that in vol. ii, damp-stained, small hole in U3 in vol. i affecting 2 letters on either side, inner margin of last sheet in vol. v neatly strengthened at stitching, pp. xxvii, [i], 443; [iv], 458; [iv], 438; [iv], 359; [iv], 395, [1](blank), [4], 12mo, uncut in the original linen backed boards, MS titling on spines, linen a bit chipped, sound Fanny Burney’s last novel. It is not uncommon rebound, but not often seen in boards. ‘The Wanderer is profoundly historical and reveals more of it author than earlier novels or journals do.’ It is a novel, above all others, which encapsulates Fanny Burney’s ‘great theme of the problems, perplexities and dangers faced by women who have to make their own way in an uncertain, often hostile and threatening world which will not tolerate female independence in thought, word or deed.’ (D.D. Devlin. ‘The novels and journals of Fanny Burney.’ [1987]).The 4 pages of advertisements at the end of vol. v are remarkable for containg exclusively the works of women writers - except the very last item (one of 3 books ‘In the Press’) - Waverly. Waverly was of course anonymous: was its inclusion in this all-female list an effort to throw off track those who might seek to identify the author, or indeed intended to promote sales as the work of a woman?

        Napoleons Proclamation an die Völker Europa`s vor seinem Abzug auf die Insel Elba

      O. O., 1814.. 28 S. Rückenbroschur. Über KVK nur ein Exemplar in der Straßburger Bibliothèque nationale et universitaire nachweisbar (ohne Nennung des Autors). - Sehr seltene Separatausgabe der satirischen Schrift, die Görres zuvor im Rheinischen Merkur 3.-23. Mai 1814 publiziert hatte. Der rhetorisch brillante Text, in dem sich Napoleon fortschreitend als machiavellistischer Dämon demaskiert, wurde von den Zeitgenossen oft als tatsächlich von Napoleon verfasst angesehen. Heute zählt der Text zu immer wieder zitierten Perlen des klassischen Journalismus. - Oben etwas knapp und leicht schief beschnitten.

      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
