        ALBUM AMICORUM/FREUNDSCHAFTSBUCH aus der Familie Schumann.

      Zwickau, Halle, Leipzig und Reinsdorf (?) 1818-1825.. quer-8° (Blattgröße 19,50 x 11,50 cm). 41 Blatt und 20 Tafeln m. fein von Hand colorierten Kupferstichansichten (davon 15 bei F. Wagner um 1815, tlw. Schnorr sc. vorwiegend aus dem Landkreis Thüringen), mit zus. 23 meist mehrzeiligen Stammbucheintragungen von Freunden, Kommilitonen und Familienangehörigen. Ungebundene, lose Sammlung (je 1 Bogen aus 2 Bll. u. 1 Tafel in Leimbindung) mit umseitigem Goldschnitt ohne Einbanddecke, Papier durchgeh. gebräunt u. z. Tl. stärker stockfleckig; teilw. etwas abgegriffen u. vereinzelt eselsohrig; in einem dem Alter entsprechenen, aber insgesamt guten und sauberen Erhaltungszustand.. Stammbuch aus der Familie Schumann. Die Annahme scheint dadurch eindeutig gesichert, dass Henriette Weber geb. Schumann (1777 - gest. nach 1849), die jüngere Schwester von Robert Schumanns Vater, sich als Tante und deren Tochter Friederike sich als Cousine benennt. Aufgrund der räumlichen Erstreckung der Eintragungen käme jedenfalls einer der älteren Brüder von Robert Schumann als Freundschaftsbuchbesitzer in Frage, am ehesten wohl der zweitälteste Bruder des Komponisten, Carl (auch Karl) Schumann (1801-1849). Carl war Buchdrucker und Verleger in der Bergstadt Schneeberg im sächsischen Erzgebirge und wurde nach dem Tod des Vaters für Robert eine Art Vaberersatz. Für Carl würde sprechen, dass die Zwickauer Eintragungen aus den Jahren 1818 stammen, die späteren Eintragungen aus Halle und Leipzig. Carl könnte sich nach Beendigung des Gymnasiums im Jahre 1818/19 zur weiteren Ausbildung nach Halle und Leipzig begeben haben. Bei zwei von den identifizierten Einträgern, der eine 1802 geboren, der andere 1804, könnte es sich in beiden Fällen um Mitschüler Carls handeln; damals verblieb man je nach Fotschritt ein, zwei oder auch drei Jahre in einer der vier Gymnasialklassen Quarta, Tertia, Sekund und Prima (die spätere Einteilung in Ober- und Untersekunda etc. war in Sachsen noch nicht bekannt). Was weiters für Carl spricht ist auch die Namensgleichheit von einem der Beiträger (Joh. Fr. Aug. Colditz) mit Pauline Colditz (1818-1879), der zweiten Gattin von Carl Schumann, die er 1836 ehelichte.

        John Quincy Adams appoints the Vermont Republican newspaper of Windsor official publishers of the laws of the United States

      "Partly printed Circular Letter Signed, ""J. Q. Adams,"" as Secretary of State, 1p, 7.75"" x 10.75"", Washington, November 16, 1818, with several emendations in his hand, informing the publisher of the Vermont Republican that his paper had been selected to print official acts of the federal government. Margins slightly irregular, damp stained spot at top left affects two words of text, a few minor pinholes and tears along folds, else very good. An unusual and scarce document conferring the coveted privilege of serving as an official printer responsible for ""publishing the Acts, Resolutions, Treaties &c. which may be approved and ratified during the Second Session of the Fifteenth Congress."" The government was to pay the newspaper upon completion of all printing related to that particular session of Congress. During the course of printing the papers were required to forward a copy to the State Department, and notes that ""it has been usual for the publisher of the Acts of Congress to furnish the Department with their respective papers for the entire year; and it is hoped that, under the present appointment, you will conform to that custom."" Adams chose to add a line next to the last sentence, observing that they were to be sent, ""without additional charge, however, on that account."" (He was essentially saying that the paper was to absorb the cost of forwarding the papers. Adams also took pains to stress the paper's responsibilities. In the bottom margin, he wrote: ""You will not fail to observe, in publishing the Laws, Resolutions, and Treaties, all the requisites prescribed by the act of Congress of 20, April 1818 - 'to provide for the publication of the Laws of the United States, and for other purposes.'"" Below the main text, Adams identifies the recipients as ""Ide & Aldrich"" after crossing out the name ""Jesse Cochran"" as ""The Editors of the Vermont Republican, Windsor."""

        Observations on the geology of the United States

      Philadelphia: A. Small, 1818. First Geological Map of the United States Maclure, William (1763-1840). Observations on the geology of the United States of North America; . . . applied to the different states of the Union, agreeably to the accompanying geological map. In: Trans. Am. Phil. Soc., new series, 1 (1818), pp. 1-91. 2 hand-colored engraved maps. Whole volume, 4to. xxiv, 454 [2, incl. errata]pp. 13 engraved plates. Philadelphia: A. Small, 1818. 269 x 221 mm. Modern quarter morocco, marbled boards in period style. Light browning, foxing & dampstaining, small tears in folds in geological map repaired, but a very good copy. Bookplate and discard stamp of the Loganian Library, Library Company of Philadelphia. Second and Best Edition of "the first connected account originally written in English on the geology of the United States" (DSB), which included the first geological map of the U.S.A. Maclure's account and accompanying map were first published in 1809 in the Trans. Am. Phil. Soc. (Vol. VI); this first version was quite short (17 pages) and its map contrived from a portion of a much larger map printed for another purpose. Maclure was dissatisfied with the 1809 version and spent the next eight years preparing a revision. His greatly expanded text of 97 pages and improved map were published in the Transactions in 1817, although the final published volume, bound up from the original fascicules, bears the date 1818. The map and memoir also appeared in a separate book-form edition published for Maclure with the imprint date of 1817; this book-form edition has a revised title and map. We suspect that the journal version appeared first, since it was the one chosen for reproduction by Stechert-Hafner for its 1962 facsimile (which describes the journal version as the "original edition").

        Memorialls; or, The Memorable Things that fell out within the Island of Brittain from 1638 to 1685.

      Archibald Constable & Co., Edinburgh, Scotland 1818 - Hardcover. Quarto. cxiv + 278pp. Beautifully rebound in half-leather by renowned London craft binder Bernard C. Middleton. Deep red pebbled leather over marbled papered boards, raised bands & gilt titles, rules & decorations to the spine. Marbled page-edges. B/w frontispiece. A first edition of the work commonly known as "Law's Memorialls." The book is taken from a manuscript compiled by a Scottish clergyman, Robert Law, and consists largely of accounts of witchcraft and the supernatural - along with some more mundane historical events - that took place in Scotland in the latter half of the seventeenth century. Although written over a century earlier, the book remained unpublished until a copy of the manuscript was acquired by Charles Kirkpatrick Sharpe (1781 - 1851), an antiquary and writer of independent means. Sharpe, who clearly had a strong interest in the history of witchcraft himself, edited the text, and finally published it in 1819. In addition to adding copious footnotes, Sharpe wrote an extensive Preface, (114 pages in typeset quarto) which effectively served as a survey of witchcraft in Scotland from the earliest records up until the end of the eighteenth century. This Preface was effectively a work in itself - so much so that an edited version of it was subsequently published as a stand-alone volume, under the title "A Historical Account of the Belief in Witchcraft in Scotland" (1884). From the collection of Dr. M. H. Coleman, with his ex-libris seal blind-stamped on the front free endpaper. Frontis has a little very pale foxing, faint offsetting to title-page, slight top-corner creases to last pages. Still a tight, clean & complete VG+ copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A Voyage to the Pacific Ocean, Undertaken By the Command of His Majesty, for Making Discoveries in the Northern Hemisphere : Performed Under the Direction of Captains Cook, Clerke, and Gore, in the Years 1776, 1777, 1778, 1779, 1780

      Philadelphia: Robert Desilver, 1818. Leather Bound. Very Good. Philadelphia: Robert Desilver, J. Maxwell, printer. 1818. 2 v. : ill., ports. ; 22 cm. V. 1 [I-XXXV] (37-445) V. 2 (1-350) 8vo. Quarterbound in glossy, modern brown leather. Contemporary brown leather boards. Black leather title stamp on spines with gilt lettering. Tight binding and solid boards. Minimal shelf wear. Light rubbing to boards. Minor wear to title stamps. Bumping to corners. Endpapers replaced. Inscription of one, "F. Bollmann, Williamsport, Pennsylvania" dated "1828" on preliminary page of Volume 1. Copper plate engraving of Capt. James Cook, F.R.S. adjacent to title page in Volume 1. Hand drawn ink sketch of a 19th century cannon on final page of volume. Intricate calligraphic sketch of a swan on preliminary page of Volume 2. Owners inscription is repeated several times in calligraphy on the next page. Copper plate engraved portrait of Captain Charles Clerke adjacent to title page. Text is clean and bright. Pages are mostly unmarked, with minor age-related discoloration. Overall, a beautiful, well-preserved set in very good condition. Though Capt. James Cook (1728-1779) started life as a deck hand in a coal boat, he rose to positions of high command in the British navy and made some of the greatest discoveries of the 18th century. In 1776, Cook was ordered to search for a western entrance to the fabled Northwest Passage across America. This trek brought him to Hawaii, the Oregon coast, and far north, past the Bering Strait. The ships left the American coast on Oct. 26, 1778, without having found a Northwest Passage. After he was killed in a dispute with natives upon returning to Hawaii, Cook's crew made another unsuccessful attempt to explore the arctic. Cook wrote these first two volumes on the voyage before his untimely death. A later, third volume was written by Captain James King. More commonly published was a 3 volume collection containing an additional folio-size book of maps and plates. American printings of Cook's voyages have always been scarce; the first American publication of Cook's 3rd voyage was a 1783 Philadelphia reprint of Rickman published by R. Bell, which was described as "a miserable edition" in the Gentleman's Magazine. Another edition appeared in New York in 1796, published by Tiebout and O'Brien for Benjamin Gomez. Plates engraved after the English edition by G. Shallus of 90 South Third St., Philadelphia. Despite the title page calling for 40 engravings, the work is complete with a total of 38 plates. Please feel free to view our photographs of this exceptional collection.

        Handbuch der Entbindungskunst, 2 Bände.

      Tübingen, Christian Friedrich Osiander, 1818 - 1821.. XII, 802, XVI, 264, VIII, 495, 15 S. (Neue) Blau marmorierte Hardcoverbände (Handeinbände) mit dreiseitigem Rotschnitt. Jeder Band mit jeweils zwei Abteilungen, bei Bd. 1 Paginierung durchlaufend, bei Bd. 2 nach Abteilungen getrennt. Bd. 2 mit vier mehrfach gefalteten Kupfern im Anhang. Friedrich Benjamin Osiander (1759 - 1822) studierte an der Universität Tübingen. Nach einer kurzen Zeit als praktizierender Arzt hospitierte Osiander 1781 ein Jahr lang an der Entbindungsanstalt in Kassel und faßte seine Erfahrungen als praktischer Geburtshelfer 1787 in seiner Schrift "Beobachtungen, Abhandlungen und Nachrichten, welche vorzüglich Krankheiten der Frauenzimmer und Kinder und die Entbindungswissenschft betreffen" erstmals zusammen. 1792 wurde Osiander Professor der Gynäkologie und Geburtshilfe an der Universität Göttingen und hatte gleichzeitig die Leitung des Göttinger Klinikums und Entbindungshauses inne. Osianders "Handbuch der Entbindungskunst" kann als wissenschaftiches und praktisches Vermächtnis seiner jahrzehntelangen Tätigkeit als Gynäkologe und Geburtshelfer gelten. Osiander entwickelte mehrere neu Instrumente zur Geburtshilfe, die in den Faltkupfern des Handbuchs illustriert werden, und leistete Beiträge zur Weiterentwicklung von Operationstechniken bei Entbindungen.. Die stilvollen Handeinbände in neuwertigem Zustand; auch innen sehr gute Exemplare; Seiten sauber und nahezu fleckenfrei. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben).

        An Improved System of Telegraphic Communication

      London: for the Author, 1818. Color and b/w plates. 12mo. unpaginated. About 300 pp. Adopting a radical approach for its time, LynnÂ’s system was referenced to “WalkerÂ’s Critical Pronouncing Dictionary, whereby every word therein may be most easily signified, to the exclusion of the tedious operation of spelling by signals.” Lynn sailed for the East India Company. His dedication was to them and his book - in both its editions - was much used by them. This is the second edition of a work first published in 1814. Both editions are rare, seeing hard use aboard ship and ordered to be destroyed if a Company ship was taken by an enemy. This edition contains two lovely hand colored plates of signal flags. Tipped to the front pastedown of this copy is a letter from Lynn presenting the book to Richard Hall Gower - “I have taken the liberty of mentioning your name.” Gower is indeed praised on page xi of the introduction, credited with introducing numerical signals in 1794. A beautiful copy, bound in full black crushed morocco with gilt rules and spine decoration. All edges gilt. Rare, Worldcat showing only 2 holdings.

        AMS - Eigenhändiges Manuskript mit Namenszug auf dem Titel.

      . Berlin (1818). Titel + 2 Seiten gr. folio- Etwas gebräunt, Bugfalte eingerissen.. Johann August Zeune (1778-1853), Pädagoge, Geograph und Germanist; Begründer der Berliner Blindenanstalt, der ersten in Deutschland. - - "Vorschlag zu einer Blinden-Versorg-Anstalt für Berlin / von August Zeune, Vorsteher der Blinden-Erzieh-Anstalt zu Berlin". - Entwurf mit Korrekturen und Streichungen. - - "... Als Blindenerziehanstalt dient nicht bloß für Berlin, sondern zur Zeit auch für den ganzen preußischen Staat die Anstalt, die ich auf Königliche Veranlassung vor nun 12 Jahren gegründet habe und welche sich ... auf dem Georgenkirchhof befindet. Hier sind 10 Freistellen, wo Blinde von der Memel an bis zur Mosel auf 5 Jahre erzogen, unterrichtet und beköstigt werden. Außerdem können aber 15 blinde Kinder aus der Stadt unentgeltlichen Unterricht empfangen ... - - ... Eine Blindenversorganstalt hingegen hat Berlin noch nicht. Sie kann doppelter Art sein, entweder eine wandernde oder ruhende ... Ein wandernde Blinden-Versorg-Anstalt ist eine solche, welche den hilfsbedürftigen die nöthigen Unterstützungen in ihre Wohnungen abliefert ... Eine ruhende Blindenversorganstalt ist eine solche, welche die hilfsbedürftigen Blinden in ein gemeinschaftliches Gebäude vereinigt u. sie daselbst verpflegt. - - ... Die ruhende hat vor der wandernden den Vortheil, daß sie 1) die Blinden besser unter Aufsicht hat und das Betteln verhindert, ... 2) den Blinden selbst ein besseres leibliches Dasein gewährt, in sofern selbige ... ihre Nahrung durch einen gemeinschaftlichen Kochort wohlfeiler u. besser bereitet werden kann, als wenn sie für sich lebten, 3) selbst für ein besseres geistiges Dasein der Blinden Sorge trägt, indem durch Vorlesen guter Bücher ihre lange Nacht erheitert u. sittliches Fortschreiten möglich gemacht wird ..." - - Zum Bedarf bezieht sich Zeune auf Zahlen aus Dresden, wo es "etliche 50 zu versorgende Blinde" bei einer Bevölkerung "von etlichen 50000 Menschen" gebe. "... Bei Berlin kann man wegen des größern Staubes und wegen des häufigeren Genusses des Branntweins den 800ten Menschen als blind annehmen. Dies würde bei einer Bevölkerung von einigen 170000 Menschen etwas über 200 Blinde geben". Die Unterhaltskosten schätzt er auf jährlich 10000 Taler - "Fänden sich nun 5000 wohlwollende Bürger dieser Stadt, welche jährlich Jeder 2 r gäben, oder 2000, welche jeder 5 r gäben, so wären 200 blinde Menschen ... dem Müßiggange und dem Verderben entrissen ..." - - 1806 war Zeune von König Friedrich Wilhelm III. mit der Einrichtung einer Blindenlehranstalt beauftragt worden; seit 1812 war sie in dem ehemaligen Militärlazarett auf dem Georgenfriedhof untergebracht.

      London, Printed for H. Colburn 1818 - 2 Volumes. Bound in red fine modern Moroccan leather. Marbled boards. Gilt spine and gilt extremities. 5 raised bands. New endpages. Fine binding and cover. Clean, unmarked pages with minimal tanning. Cordier, Japonica 465 Vasily Mikhailovich Golovnin was given command of the sloop Diana, and made his first voyage around the world (1807?1809), with the object of conducting a survey of the northern Pacific, and transporting supplies to Okhotsk.In 1811, Golovnin described and mapped the Kuril Islands from the Strait of Hope to the eastern shores of Iturup Island (Etorofu in Japanese).While exploring Kunashir Island (Kunashiri in Japanese), Golovnin was lured ashore, taken prisoner, charged with violating Sakoku (a Japanese policy prohibiting foreigners from entering Japan), and held captive for two years by the Japanese on the island of Hokkaido. Golovnin was said to possess a superior education and fascination with foreign cultures. After making one failed attempt to escape his captures, Golovnin decided to utilize his time in detainment to master the Japanese language, and familiarize himself with Japanese culture and traditions.Golovnin was released in 1813, returned to Russia, and published an account of his years in captivity. His book, Captivity in Japan During the Years 1811, 1812, 1813, became an instant classic. It was hailed in Russia as an authoritative volume on Japanese culture, and helped shape an entire generation's view of Japan. Golovnin clearly respected the Japanese, portraying them as intelligent, as patriotic, and as worthy rivals of the Russians in the Pacific. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Prairie-Bird

      Richard Bentley. First edition.. Fine copy.. Sadleir 1818; Wolff 5022; Sabin 51489. 3 vols, 8vo, later brown half morocco, t.e.g., others untrimmed, gilt rules and lettering. A novel based on Murray?s travels in the Western United States between 1835 and 1838, when he lived for a time with a tribe of Pawnees and which he later wrote about in his factual and highly regarded Travels in North America (1839). Toward the end of his tour, Murray fell in love with Elise Wadsworth, a resident of Niagara, but her father disapproved of Murray and forbade any communication between the two. Prairie-Bird contains a carefully veiled message of Murray?s continued love for Elise, which is alleged to be the only communication between them until after her father died in 1848. They were married the next year. Bookplate of Clement Shorter on the front paste-downs.

        RICKMAN. An Attempt to Discriminate the Styles of English Architecture. Second Edition [ with] KENDALL. An Elucidation of the Principles of Architecture usually denominated Gothic. First Edition. AN UNUSUAL GOTHIC 'DOUBLE'

      Longman, 1818 (first work); Murray, Nornaville and Fell [and others, 1819] (second work). 2 works in one vol. 8vo., with an engraved frontispiece and 13 engraved plates (first work) and 23 engraved plates (second work), some very light spotting (mainly marginal) on plates; handsomely bound in twentieth century half calf, marbled boards, back ruled, tooled and lettered in gilt, a highly attractive bright, crisp copy, ideal as a gift or for presentation. Since the binding is lettered only for the Rickman it is possible that a previous owner did not realise that TWO important works are present here (the latter, unnamed, work being much the scarcer).Rickman provided the first systematic treatise on Gothic architecture in England. Its influence was profound, for his terminology was employed by virtually all subsequent writers; much of it, indeed, is still current today. First published in 1817 in Liverpool (where the present issue was compiled), one of its most valuable features was its descriptive list of (over 800) extant buildings illustrating the principles of English architecture and helpfully arranged by county. In this updated edition the number of buildings is greatly enlarged. Kendall's VERY SCARCE analysis is based on the ornaments, arches, columns etc., of Exeter Cathedral; the work is intended for practising architects who are taught the main elements which must be followed meticulously to achieve the pure pointed style. Kendall (1766-1829) was Surveyor of Exeter Cathedral and responsible for much restoration after about 1805. His important work was reissued once only, by Bohn in 1842. A FINE OPPORTUNITY TO ACQUIRE TWO KEY AND BEAUTIFULLY ILLUSTRATED GOTHIC TEXTS IN A SINGLE, HANDSOME BINDING. . Catalogs: english church architecture.
