        Armata. A fragment. [with] The Second Part of Armata.

      - London, John Murray 1817. Two volumes octavo, together in 19th century half calf, spine elaborately gilded. A bit of browning, a handsome pleasing copy. Second editions of both parts. This now obscure Antarctic imaginary voyage to another world connected to ours at the south pole might have been popular, in a mild and genteel way: there were supposedly five editions of the first part in 1817 and the second part likewise reached five editions by 1819. It is possible they were manufactured as part of Erskine’s joke in the preface of part two that histories such as this were doomed to obscurity whereas if he called it a romance it was guaranteed two editions at least by the lending libraries alone. While the first and second edition of the first part are different settings, the second and fourth editions are from the same setting. The first and second editions of part two are from the same setting, as is the fourth edition up until signature K which is where Erskine added some footnotes. Erskine's Armata is dystopian in intent but he is too polite and good natured to go overboard about it and although a couple of hundred or so sailors, from earth and from Armata, are obliterated at each end of the book they are dispatched in a sentence each. Even the narrator's beloved Morvina, who is literally killed by her induction into society, is done to death in a quiet half page, the narrator apologetic for being tactless enough to mention it. But, skimming past the legal religious stuff - I couldn't follow the outrageous fraud the clergy put over the government and justice system - there are some delightful scenes of bone crunching mayhem once Armata society sets off for an evening out. Erskine, also now obscure, was once described as the "greatest advocate as well as the first forensic orator who ever appeared in any age" (James High as quoted in Patterson's 'Nobody's Perfect'). He remained all his life a fierce defender of freedom of speech and the liberty of the press with one startling lapse: after defending Thomas Paine at the cost of his own position he prosecuted a bookseller for distributing Paine's writing. Apparently he later returned the retainer in remorse but he remained open to accusations of self interest in that case.

Sammelband von Originalschriften (meist ohne Verlagsangabe, aber jeweils mit den Titelblättern) von Protagonisten des ersten - entscheidenden - Wartburgfestes am 18. Oktober 1817 mit ca 500 Teilnehmern von 12 deutschen. Universitäten, voran der Universität Jena, zum Gedenken an die Reformation und die Freiheitskriege: u.a. Forderung nach staatlicher Einigung Deutschlands (erstmalig die Fahne Schwarz-Rot-Gold), Ausschreitungen bis hin zur Bücher-Verbrennung nach Propaganda radikaler Gruppen und einzelner Protagonisten (u.a. Rödiger), Geburtsstunde der Burschenschaften und in der Folge Provozierung der "Karlsbader Beschlüsse (1819), die ein Verbot der Verbindungen und die Verfolgung ihrer Mitglieder auslösten.- Im "Widerschein (der Fackeln) hielten der Philosophiestudent Ludwig Rödiger und der aus der Turnerbewegung kommende Hans Ferdinand Maßmann kurze Ansprachen, worauf- hin neben einem preußischen Ulanenschnürleib, einem hessischen Zopf und einem österreichischen Korporalstock auch eine Reihe von Büchern verbrannt wurden, deren Verfasser (...) als Vertreter der Reaktion galten. Dazu der preußische Gendarmeriekodex des Polizeidirektors von Kamptz sowie Schriften des gegenrevolutionären Literaten August von Kotzebue und des Aufklärers Saul Ascher, der gegen die Deutschtümelei des Turnvaters Jahn zu Felde gezogen war. Als Symbol der Fremdherrschaft wurde schließlich noch Napoleons Code civil in die Flammen geworfen. In einem "Feuerspruch" wurde jeweils der Grund der Verbrennung zusammengefasst (...). Die Burschenschaftler waren unter sich. Sie verstanden sich als die Zukunft Deutschlands, und die Bücherverbrennung sollte zu einer geistig-moralischen Erneuerung beitragen. Es war, in der lutherischen Tradition stehend, ein revolutionäres Fanal, das sich gegen die Politik fast aller deutscher Teilstaaten richtete, weswegen der preußische Polizeidirektor Kamptz die Burschenschaftler beschuldigte, sie wollten "den Doctorhut mit der Jacobinermütze vertauschen".(H.Münkler, Die Deutschen und ihre Mythen, Berlin 2009, p.319 f.). - Folgende Schriften hier vorliegend: 1. von "Maßmann aus Berlin" (so die handschr.

        Rosa Andegavensis

      Paris 1817 - This beautiful stipple engraving is from Pierre Joseph Redoute's Les Roses. The work was published in Paris by Firmin Didot between 1817 and 1824. The text was written by Claude Antoine Thory.Redoute's name is synonymous with beauty and in the world of botanical art he is known as the best. The work proved to be not only outstanding in terms of its beauty but also for its scientific merits. Many of the images were after Thory's personal collection as well as the rose garden of the Empress Josephine's garden at Malmaison. Redoute and Thory described almost all of the important roses that were known in their time. Lawalree describes the text as being 'of outstanding importance to both botanists and horticulturalists.Redoute's fame is due in large part to his diligent effort to perfect the use of stipple engraving. This labor intensive, and therefore expensive, technique creates subtle yet stunning variations of color making it superior to the engraving alone. Each plate was created using the 'a la poupee' process in which the color was applied before the printing. Hand-finished coloring was painstakingly applied after printing.Redoute was renowned for his artistic ability and tutored such people as Queen Marie-Antoinette, Empress Josephine, Marie-Louise, and Queen Marie-Amelie. Redoute influenced a breadth of artists that followed him including Turpin, Poiteau, Bessa, and Prevost. Redoute is widely considered the finest botanical illustrator of the early 19th century, if not throughout history.The process of stipple engraving and color printing give the Redoute Rose prints their luminous quality. Stippling is an etching process that employs dots instead of lines to form the image, which is then color printed by applying colored inks directly to the copper plate for each impression. The use of colored inks, greens and browns to print the stems and leaves, and reds and pinks to print the flowers, create a more luminous print by eliminating the necessity to paint watercolor over a back inked image. --- The work is in very good to excellent condition. There is an occasional faint fox mark or imperfection to be expected with age. Please review the image carefully for condition and contact us with any questions.

Presentation Copy, with the first leaf inscribed: "To Charles Stokes Esq. from the authors." Bound with 21 other offprints / pamphlets (liat available on request) in one quarto volume. 279 x 220 mm. Half calf, gilt spine, cloth boards ca. 1850, minor edgewear, a few scratches on spine. Minor foxing and offsetting, but very good. From the library of Charles Stokes, amateur geologist and vice president of the Geological Society; 12 of the 24 items in this volume bear presentation inscriptions to Stokes. (1) First Edition, Offprint Issue. Agassiz's important paper on the hydromedusae of Massachusetts contains the first description and illustrations of nerves in jellyfish, making Agassiz "the first person to discover a nervous system in any member of the Cnidaria" (Mackie, p. 27). "Included in [Agassiz's] 1850 paper are descriptions of nerves in several medusae, including Sarsia mirabilis Agassiz and Hippocrene superciliaris Agassiz. Previously no one had claimed that coelenterates had nerves of any sort, and Agassiz's report was evidently treated with considerable skepticism. Contemporary workers found it hard to conceive of a nervous system that had no center, but consisted simply of strands or cords of nervous tissue as Agassiz described it" (ibid.). Faced with criticism, Agassiz retracted his description, but recent research has confirmed that he was in fact correct in his identification of nervous tissue in hydromedusae. Mackie, "The first description of nerves in a cnidarian: Louis Agassiz's account of 1850," Hydrobiologia 530/531 (2004): 27-32. (2) First Edition, Offprint Issue. Clift's memoir contains the first description of Stegolophodon latidens, a new species of mastodon discovered in the fossil collection shipped from Burma to England by colonial administrator John Crawfurd (1783-1868). Crawfurd's important fossil collection was further discussed by William Buckland in his "Geological account of a series of animal and vegetable remains and of rocks, collected by J. Crawfurd, Esq.," also included in this volume. Clift's paper provided important confirmation for Cuvier's concept of extinction, introduced in his famous "Mémoire sur les espèces d'éléphans vivantes et fossiles" (1799). In that paper Cuvier demonstrated anatomically that fossil mammoths and living elephants were distinct species and made a convincing case for the reality of species extinction, challenging the widely held view that the natural world was complete and perfect as created by God. Skeptics countered that mammoths, while extinct in Europe, could still possibly be living in other parts of the world; however, Crawfurd's discovery of mammoth fossils in Burma lent credence to Cuvier's argument.

        Regolamento o siano costituzioni dell'Ordine del merito sotto il titolo di S. Giuseppe

      Firenze: Stamperia granducale, 1° agosto 1817. 25, [2] pagine. 19,5x14 cm.Meravigliosa rilegatura alle armi con impressioni in oro e a secco sui piatti; particolarmente raffinato lo stemma granducale dei Lorena, realizzato con rara accuratezza. Interno ottimo, con lievissime bruniture. Una leggera impronta sul verso del foglio di guardia posteriore. Splendido esemplare. [M126] L'Ordine del Merito sotto il titolo di San Giuseppe, più comunemente noto come Ordine di San Giuseppe, fu istituito da Ferdinando III di Lorena il 9 marzo 1807, dopo aver ricevuto da Napoleone Bonaparte, con gli accordi della pace di Presburgo, il granducato di Würzburg in luogo della perduta Toscana. Mosso da stima nei riguardi dell'imperatore francese e consapevole dell'aspirazione di questi ad essere investito del prestigioso ordine austriaco del Toson d'Oro, sempre negatogli per la ferma opposizione della corte di Vienna, Ferdinando III, probabilmente d'accordo con il fratello Francesco I d'Asburgo Lorena, imperatore d'Austria, trovò una via d'uscita con l'istituzione di un nuovo ordine cavalleresco, per l'appunto quello di San Giuseppe, che vide come primo insignito nel 1807 proprio Napoleone. Rientrato in Toscana con la Restaurazione, Ferdinando III con apposito editto del 18 marzo 1817 ufficializzò il nuovo Ordine, ponendolo al secondo posto fra gli ordini equestri dello Stato (dopo quello più prestigioso e antico di Santo Stefano) e dotandolo di un apposito regolamento (1° agosto). A seguito dell'allontanamento di Leopoldo II dalla Toscana (aprile 1859), l'Ordine di San Giuseppe, al pari di quello di Santo Stefano, fu soppresso dal Governo provvisorio retto da Bettino Ricasoli, perdurando successivamente come semplice ordine dinastico.

Erste Ausgabe seines seltenen Erstlingswerkes, einer Vorarbeit zu seinem 1835 erschienenen Hauptwerk. - Der englische Chemiker und Farbenfabrikant Field (1777-1854) beschäftigte sich ein Leben lang nicht nur praktisch mit Farben und Färben, sondern auch theoretisch mit ihren harmonischen Beziehungen. In vorliegendem Werk knüpft er an die Arbeiten von Le Blon an, indem er mit den drei subtraktiven Primärfarben Rot, Gelb und Blau operiert und sich bemüht, eine Farbharmonie in ästhetischer Analogie zur musikalischen Harmonielehre aufzustellen. Seine Theorien waren besonders für die Farbenlehre in der ersten Hälfte des 19.

        OS LUSIADAS, POEMA EPICO DE [Edição do Morgado de Mateus, 1819]

      - Nova edição correcta, e dada à luz, conforme á de 1817, in 4º, Por Dom Joze Maria de SOUZA-BOTELHO, Morgado de Matteus, Socio da Academia Real das Sciencias de Lisboa. PARIS, NA OFFICINA TYPOGRAPHICA DE FIRMINO DIDOT, Impressor do Rei, e do Instituto. M DCCC XIX. [1819]. In 8º (de 21,5x12,5) com [8], cx, 420 pags. Encadernação da época com lombada e cantos em pele. Corte das folhas carminado. Ilustrado com um retrato do autor, desenhado por F. Gérard e aberto por B. Roger. Exemplar com ex-libris da época de "Douglas, Cavers, Hawick, N. B." (Trata-se do ex-libris da biblioteca do antigo castelo, hoje em ruínas, na qual se situava a sede do clã Douglas, em Hawick, na Escócia); carimbo oleográfico de posse «FS» na página 128; e leves vestígios de oxidação natural do papel na folha de rosto. Edição in 4º executada como redução gráfica da edição monumental em 1817 do Morgado de Mateus, e acrescentada com a biografia de Camões, de Manuel de Faria Severim. O Morgado de Mateus, oficial de marinha, académico, e ex-embaixador em França, soube que tinha havido duas edições dos Lusíadas, com variantes, publicadas em 1572. Tratava-se de uma tradição oral passada de bibliotecário em bibliotecário. Porém ninguém tinha verificado a tradição e procurado saber a exatidão nestas afirmações. O Morgado de Mateus foi confrontado com uma situação única na história da literatura portuguesa e da literatura europeia. à importância do estudo e da fixação do texto Um facto paradoxal é de que a obra tinha sido preparada, ilustrada e impressa num país (a França) que lutava com a própria pátria do Morgado de Mateus (Portugal), e sob a autoridade de um homem que, pensava-se que devia ter tido o bom senso de retornar à sua terra natal há já muito tempo. Relativamente à fixação da ortografia também aqui esta obra ( na edição monumental) estabeleceu um marco histórico porque até esta data a Academia das Ciências de Lisboa nunca tinha fixado a ortografia em qualquer dos seus trabalhos (vide Anne Gallut). Inocêncio V, 13. ; JOSÉ DO CANTO 18, nº60: «Reprodução, em formato pequeno, da grande edição dos Lusíadas [do Morgado de Mateus], com o texto mais correcto. Boa e estimada edição, dirigida por F. L. Verdier.» ANNE GALLUT, Le Morgado de Mateus, Éditeur des Lusíadas, Klincksieck & Bertrand, 1970; pags. 93, 102, 122, 123, 133, 139: « Le Morgado apprit qu'il n'y avait pas eu une édition des Lusíadas mais deux, parues en 1572 à Lisbonne chez António Gonçalves. Le noeud de la question se tenait là: en savait par une tradition orale transmise de bibliothecaire en bibliothécaire qu'il y avai eu deux éditions en 1572. Personne n'avait verifié cette tradition et pourtant on jugeait que tel exemplaire appartenait a la primière edition, tel autre a la seconde et cella sans les avoir comparés, san avoir jamais cherché à savoir pourquoi l'un était plus ancien que l'autre. Le Morgado était en face d'une situation unique dans l'histoire de la litterature portugaise, et peut-être de la litterature européenne. La beauté du livre égalait le sérieux de la critique des textes princeps. A cela s'ajoutait le fait que le livre avait été préparé, illusté et imprimé dans un pays (la France) qui avait combattu le leur (le Portugal), et sous l'autorité d'un homme qui, pensaient-ils (les portugais), aurait dû regagner sa patrie depuis longtemps. [ ] On ne pouvait non plus parler d'ortographie moderne de la langue portugaise: l'Academie (de Lisbonne) ne l'avait jamais fixée dans aucun de ses travaux. » Location/localizacao: M-9-B-26 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Hi, This lot is a paperback copy of the Third Edition of William Lamberts ""Instructions and Rules for playing the Nobel Game of Cricket as practised by the most eminent players"" Published in the Spring of 1817 (before May) so nearly 200 years old. This paperback does not have the original covers or the frontispiece but other than that it is complete and checked against Roger Hancocks guide. The front cover (title page) has tape to the left but the book is badly shaken and could do with new tape or to be rebound as it is very loose indeed, hence the tiny price.

Ratures et corrections. bon Rares et très intéressants manuscrits d'observations et d'expériences sur les "couleurs accidentelles", phénomène qui avait été soulevé par Buffon et qui sera étudié par Chevreul.

Nouveaux moyens de donner lieu à diverses sensations du genre de celles que l'on a ainsi nommées". L'auteur, Bénédict Prévost, précise, en introduction, les circonstances de ses découvertes. "Je dis nouveaux moyens, parce que je crois qu'ils sont encore comme tels, quoique j'aie trouvé le principal, et pour ainsi dire le fondamental, il y a une vingtaine d'années ; que je l'aie décrit, avec figure, dans une lettre adressée en 1800 à mon parent, M. le professeur P[ierre] Prévost de Genève, que je l'ai exposé, que j'ai fait chez moi, en présence de plusieurs de mes disciples, la plupart des expériences qui y sont relatives dans mes cours depuis cinq ou six ans et que j'en ai parlé il y a plus de trois ans et demie dans une séance de la Société de physique et d'histoire naturelle de Genève [.]".

Spine toned, spine ends and extremities worn, boards toned, a little foxing to prelims. A very good copy. First UK edition of this very scarce work, first published in the US in the same year. Only three other copies are known to be in the UK institutionally. While the author is listed on the title page as "A South-American", this work was written by Manuel Palacio Fajardo (1784–1819), the Venezuelan patriot, congress member, and advocate for independence. He became a representative to the first Constituent Congress of Venezuela in 1810 after the independence war broke out. He then went into exile after the fall of the First Republic in 1812, first in the United States before travelling to France and then Britain. He returned to the Venezuelan Congress, reestablished by Simon Bolivar, in 1819 and made final revisions to Bolivar's inauguration speech. This work describes the revolutions that occurred in South American countries, of which Venezuela was the first to declare independence, against Spanish colonial power. [Attributes: First Edition]

Of great historical importance – A fine original manuscript that is one of the earliest known detailed and broadly accurate maps of the interior of Ceylon (Sri Lanka), focusing on the territories of the Kingdom of Kandy, drafted by an anonymous British military engineer, predicated upon pioneering reconnaissance undertaken in the period just before and during the Uva Rebellion (1817-8), following which Britain annexed Kandy and assumed control of the entire island; apparently the seminal source for John Davy’s groundbreaking printed map of the island; bound within a an example of Robert Fellowes’ ‘The History of Ceylon’. This highly important original manuscript is one of the earliest known surviving maps to give a broadly accurate and detailed rendering of the southern interior of Ceylon (modern Sri Lanka), with a special focus on the traditional heartland of the legendary Kingdom of Kandy. The map was drafted by a British military cartographer, almost certainly just before or during the Uva Rebellion (1817-8), the final showdown between Kandy and Britain, upon which the latter utterly vanquished the former, absorbing its territory into British Ceylon. The mapmaker is unknown, but circumstantial evidence suggests that it could quite plausibly have been Captain John Fraser, a military cartographer who worked closely under the supervision of Governor Sir Robert Brownrigg (in office, 1812-20), the ‘carto-literate’ supreme commander of the British forces during the rebellion. Importantly, the map appears to be either the seminal source, or closely related to the seminal source, of John Davy’s 1821 map, which is the first printed map to give an accurate portrayal of the interior of Ceylon. The present map deserves to be the focal point of future archival research in Columbo and London, which will hopefully yield more detail as to authorship and the precise circumstances of its creation.

York: Printed and Sold by C. Croshaw, [1817]. 14" x 8-1/2" broadside. Woodcut execution scene depicting three bodies hanging from a gallows above headline. Text in two columns, black border along margins.

The text consists of detailed accounts of the crimes that had been committed with an emphasis on the deeds of the Irish physician Patrick Dooring and the "unfortunate victim of his lawless lust," fourteen year old Ann Broadbent. In notably lurid language, the account details the crime's preparation, the crime and the search for Dooring, who had escaped to Ireland. The crimes of the other two are also described in detail. As is often the case, the final paragraphs of the text advise readers to ponder their actions and how they may lead to a "violent and ignominious death." The woodcut depicts three people hanging from their nooses behind York Castle. It is clearly a generic image; one of them is a woman. This appears to be an unrecorded broadside. No copies are recorded on OCLC or the British Library.

      - 19 volumes in-8, demi-veau havane de l’époque à petits coins, dos lisses ornés d’un riche décor doré de compartiments garnis de filets, palettes et fers spéciaux à l’urne et au panier fleuri, tranches jaunes mouchetées de rouge. Exceptionnel ensemble, bien complet, en reliure uniforme de l’époque, de la collection du ‘Censeur’ et du ‘Censeur Européen’. Cofondé et largement rédigé par Charles Comte et Charles Dunoyer, il est le périodique libéral et industrialiste le plus important de la période, fondateur de la tradition libérale française. 1 - Collection bien complète du 'Censeur' avec le septième volume qui "fut saisi [et détruit] par la police, avant que l'impression en fût terminée" (P. Larousse), ainsi que les 12 "Bulletins" publiés entre le 1er juillet et le 30 septembre 1814, signés : "D.R". (Dunoyer), reliés en fin du premier volume. (Hatin, 317. 'Histoire générale de la presse française', II, 38. Drujon, ‘Ouvrages condamnés, p. 76). 2 - Ensemble complet des 12 tomes du 'Censeur Européen' publiés de février 1817 à avril 1818, après la suppression du ‘Censeur’ en septembre 1815. Charles Comte et Charles Dunoyer s’adjoignirent les collaborations d’Augustin Thierry, P.-L. Courier, Daunou, A. Dupin, J.-B. Say, etc. Le tome V contient, en fin, le "Mémoire adressé à la chambre d’accusation" (84 p.) publié en réponse à la saisie du troisième volume du ‘Censeur Européen’ par le gouvernement. Riche en comptes rendus et en articles de fond, organe d’opposition indépendant très critique vis-à-vis du gouvernement, "Le Censeur" et son successeur, "Le Censeur européen", s'attachèrent à tout ce qui intéressait "l'amélioration du régime représentatif", le développement industriel de la France, sa réorganisation ainsi que celle de l'Europe, dans l'ordre politique, religieux, social, militaire ou économique. (Hatin, p. 317). Cf. 'Histoire générale de la presse française', II, p. 80 et s. ; E. Harpaz, 'Le Censeur Européen. Histoire d’un Journal libéral et industrialiste', Genève, Slatkine, 2000 et R. Leroux, ‘Aux fondements de l'industrialisme’: Comte, Dunoyer et la pensée libérale en France’, Paris, Hermann, 2015. Quelques petites auréoles et rares rousseurs éparses. Très bel exemplaire, très frais, très bien relié à l’époque. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
