        RACCOLTA DI CINQUANTA PRINCIPALI VEDUTE DI ANTICHITA', TRATTE DAI SCAVI FATTI IN ROMA IN QUESTI ULTIMI TEMPI Disegnate ed incise all’acqua forte da Luigi Rossini Architetto.

      Roma, da Giovanni Scudellari, 1818. Album in-4 oblungo (mm. 330x430), mz. pelle coeva (abras. ai piatti), tit. oro su tassello al dorso, frontesp. inciso e 46 (su 50) belle tavv., inc. all?'acquaforte e numerate, che includono vedute dei più suggestivi edifici classici e rovine romane, nonchè luoghi meno noti. Nel ns. esempl. due tavole (la n. 31 ?"Veduta generale del Foro Romano?" e la n. 44 ?"Veduta del Convento delle Monache Domenicane?") sono state sostituite da altre due, sempre del Rossini, ma provenienti da una diversa raccolta, i.e.: ?"Castello dell?'Acqua Giulia?" e ?"Porta Ostiense?". Le tavv. mancanti sono: n. 20 ?"Veduta della Colonna dell?'Imperatore Foca, fatta escavare dalla Duchessa di Devonshire?" - n. 27 ?"Veduta delle tre colonne di Giove Tonante, secondo gl?'ultimi scavi?" - n. 32 ?"Veduta degl?'avanzi d?'una delle Sale degl?'Imperatori, nelle Terme di Tito?" - n. 33 ?"Veduta dell?'Anfiteatro Flavio detto il Colosseo?". "Seconda edizione" di questa preziosa raccolta del celebre architetto-incisore, uno dei maggiori illustratori di Roma (la prima ediz., pubblicata nel 1817, conteneva soltanto 40 vedute). ?"Luigi Rossini (1790-1857), calcografo, pittore e architetto ravennate, studiò all?'Accademia di Bologna. Premiato più volte, riuscì vincitore nel concorso per il premio Quadriennale di Roma. Trasferitosi colà nel 1810, vi continuò i suoi studi di architettura e di pittura, senza tuttavia riuscire a segnalarsi. La sua fama la dovette all?'attività incisoria, cominciata nel 1814 con stampe riproducenti antichità romane. Le sue incisioni comparvero in raccolte: ?"Antichità dei contorni di Roma?" - ?"Raccolta di 50 principali vedute.. incise in acquaforte?" - ?"Le antichità romane, ossia raccolta delle più interessanti vedute..?": tutte ispirate al Piranesi, intese con grandiosità e rese pittoricamente, sebbene con fedeltà al vero. Durante i quarant?'anni e più della sua attività, il R. incise circa mille rami: seicentosei se ne conservano tuttora nella Calcografia di Roma?". Così Servolini, pp. 713-714. Cfr. Brunet,IV, 1408 - Graesse,VI,170. Timbro al frontesp., qualche lieve arross. o lievi tracce d?'uso solo marginali, altrim. esemplare ben conservato.

        Valkyria.

      - Denna detalj ur Sandbergs monumentala verk »Valkyrior ridande till strid» (1818-20) återger centralgestalten som ett solitärporträtt. Det har säkerligen utförts under arbetet med den större kompositionen och överensstämmelsen mellan bilderna är stor frånsett smärre detaljer.»Valkyrior ridande till strid» är ett av den kortlivade götiska rörelsens viktigaste verk. Valkyriorna var de andeväsen som i striden avgjorde vilka krigare som skulle falla och medföras till Valhall. I Sandbergs målning återges tre av dem till höger i bild, ridande till strid. De befinner sig i himlen ovanför drabbningen med fladdrande mantlar och fällda spjut. På motsatt sida balanseras de av Freja, också hon till häst.Sandberg deltog med en stor skiss till målningen på Götiska förbundets berömda utställning i Stockholm 1818 (1). Jämte Fogelbergs modeller till monumentalstatyerna av Oden, Frej och Tor var Sandbergs skiss det verk som väckte störst uppmärksamhet, och med den fick han sitt stora genombrott. Målningen fullbordades ett par år senare, den är signerad och daterad 1820 och köptes av Gustaf Trolle-Bonde till konstsamlingen på Säfstaholm. Sedan 1991 tillhör den Nationalmuseum (2).Under en kort period i början av 1800-talet försökte flera konstnärer ge liv åt nordiska myter och hjältesagor i sin konst, bl. a. med entusiastiskt stöd av Karl XIV Johan som utnyttjade den fornnordiska retoriken för att befästa sin ställning. Intresset för den dimhöljda nordiska forntiden hade börjat växa fram på flera håll i Europa under slutet av 1700-talet, och i både Sverige och Danmark förstärktes de nationella stämningarna av napoleonkrigens traumatiska och förödmjukande omvälvningar, för Sveriges del förlusten av Finland 1809.Den götiska poesin fick sitt stora genombrott 1811 med Tegnérs »Svea» och Geijers dikter »Manhem», »Vikingen» och »Odalbonden». Men det som var möjligt i litteraturen var inte lika självklart i bildkonsten. Försök i genren uppmuntrades, bl. a. anordnade Götiska förbundet 1817-1818 en tävling för motiv ur den nordiska gudaläran med prispengar från en anonym donation. Men den konstnärliga utmaningen var stor. De nordiska sagorna utgjorde inte någon levande tradition och i brist på arkeologiskt material visste man mycket litet om hur den nordiska fornvärlden egentligen sett ut. Risken var stor att forntidens hjältar och gudar skulle bli framställda på samma sätt som de klassiska från Grekland och Rom, bara i annorlunda kläder. Det skulle visa sig att man inte förmådde övervinna dessa grundläggande problem. Både Sandberg själv och andra konstnärer överflyttade gradvis sitt intresse för den inhemska kulturen på ett besläktat tema, folklivsskildringar och motiv ur svensk historia. Olja på duk.

        On the Safety Lamp for Coal Miners;

      London: R. Hunter,, 1818. with some Researches on Flame. Octavo. Original brown boards backing blue-grey paper, paper label to spine lettered in black. Full page fold-out diagram. Ownership inscription (Paris address) to verso of front free endpaper. Some light stains to boards, tips worn, upper hinge cracked but holding, contents slightly foxed and a little cockled. A very good copy. First edition. A collection of Davy's researches into combustion for the design of his miner's safety lamp, with a detailed fold-out diagram of his invention. An icon of the industrial revolution, the need for a safety lamp for miners was born out of a series of explosions in coal mines, due to pockets of flammable gas known as firedamp. After some experimentation in the autumn of 1815, Davy created a prototype. It was a simple and elegant solution to a deadly problem: a fine mesh enclosing the flame acted as a deflagration arrester and prevented ignition of firedamp. It was tested in January 1816 at Hebburn colliery and quickly went into production. However, the then-unknown George Stephenson had also been working on the problem independently, and had invented a similar lamp using glass instead of gauze ?- the Geordie lamp, as it was later named. Davy's invention quickly became embroiled in controversy over plagiarism, from which he was later cleared. Both men's lamp designs also had safety issues, with the gauze of the Davy lamp rusting in the wet mining conditions and so rendering the lamp unsafe. Nonetheless, the Davy lamp was cheap to produce, and its gauze design remained integral to the mining industry. It was subsequently incorporated into many safety lamp designs ?- indeed, an equivalent version is still used today. A fascinating book, in which Davy writes of his hope that some practical purpose may be derived from his research in order to "lessen the miseries or increase the comforts of our fellow creatures" (preface). Scarce in the original boards.

        Tales of My Landlord, Second Series

      Edinburgh: Printed for Archibald Constable and Company, 1818 Four volumes. First edition, with half-titles. Volume I second state, with "A" to the dedication page, volume II first state, with "Wichtcraft" to page 52, volume IV first state, with page 348 misnumbered as 438. Finely bound in contemporary full brown speckled calf, with contrasting red and green labels lettered in gilt to the spines, spine compartments ruled in gilt, board edges stamped in blind, blue speckled edges. Very good, with some wear and rubbing to the extremities, some rubbing to the spines, former owner's bookplates to the front pastedowns, some light offsetting to the endpapers, volume II with a small hole to the rear fly leaf, a few minor creases to the otherwise bright and clean pages. Overall, a bright and pleasing set, free of any repairs or restoration. These four volumes comprise the second installment of the Tales of My Landlord series, a subset of Scott's Waverley novels. The series, intended to highlight life in different Scottish regions, was published under Scott's pseudonym Jedediah Cleishbotham the "Schoolmaster and Parish-clerk of Gandercleugh" and purported to be a collection of tales from the landlord of the fictional Wallace Inn at Gandercleugh, who was said to have sent them to Cleishbotham for editing and arrangement. The second series of Tales of My Landlord contains Scott's popular historical novel "The Heart of Midlothian," which is widely considered one of the best of the Waverley novels. The title "The Heart of Midlothian" refers to the Old Tolbooth Prison in Edinburgh and emphasizes the novel's central theme of crime and punishment. Based on the actual Porteous Riots of 1736, "The Heart of Midlothian" tells the story of nobleman George Staunton and his lover Effie Deans. Presented as the man whose freedom ultimately sparked the riots, Staunton attempts to assist Effie, who is convicted of infanticide after her child by Staunton is kidnapped by his former mistress. The novel follows Effie's sister's valiant efforts to clear Effie's name, the mistress's treatment of Effie's son, and Staunton's ultimate downfall.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        A faustissima exaltação de Sua Magestade Fidelissima o Senhor D. João VI ao throno. Poema ?.

      Lisbon, na Impressão Regia, 1818. - Wood-engraved royal arms of Portugal on title page. Engraved frontispiece, (3 ll.), 82 pp. 4°, contemporary plain blue-gray front wrapper (spine mostly gone and rear wrapper missing, stitching gone) . Uncut. Light foxing on engraved frontispiece, light marginal foxing on a few leaves at end. Overall very good condition. ---- FIRST EDITION of the author's second work; it was reprinted in the @Jornal de Coimbra, volume 59, part 2. The poem in 3 cantos (over 2,000 lines) is followed by 30 dense pages of notes. This composition and Castilho's first publication, @Epicedio na sentida morte da Augustissima Senhora D. Maria I, 1816, garnered him a position as secretary in the local government of Coimbra; since he was unable to fulfill its duties due to his blindness, his uncle, António Barreto de Castilho, took the position. Castilho ranks (with Almeida Garrett and Herculano) as one of the three best Romantic writers in Portugal, and Bell notes that "His @quadras . . . and his blank verse are alike so easy and natural, his style so harmonious and pure that, despite the lack of observation and originality in these long poems, they have not even to-day lost their place in Portuguese literature." Castilho published numerous works of poetry and prose, founded and edited the @Revista universal lisbonense (1841-45), and began the series "Livraria Classica Portuguesa," for which he wrote the studies of Bernardes and Garcia de Resende. He also translated works of Ovid, Molière, Anacreon and Goethe?his @Faust translation is particularly well-known for the controversy it raised among students of German language and literature ("a questão faustina"). Following Almeida Garrett's death and Herculano's retreat to Val-de-Lôbos, Castilho became the leading figure of the Romantic movement. His 1865 prologue to a work by Pinheiro Chagas, which condemned the young writers of Coimbra (Antero de Quental, Teofilo Braga, Vieira de Castro) for "nebulosidade," incited Quental to write @Bom senso e bom gôsto.Castilho (1800-75), a native of Lisbon, became blind at the age of six but nevertheless went on to earn a degree in law from Coimbra. Aside from his literary production, he invented a new method for teaching children to read, the "methodo portuguez," and attempted to implement it while serving as Commissario Geral de Instrucção Primaria.The engraved frontispiece shows the author, blind in both eyes. It is signed by F.F. Soeiro as artist (Soares gives no information on him) and by C. Fontes as engraver. Fontes (1777-ca. 1835), a native of Lisbon, worked at the Impressão Regia and from 1810 to 1820 was virtually the official engraver for patriotic or liberal subjects.---- Innocêncio I, 131.

        Rob Roy

      Edinburgh: Printed by James Ballantyne and Co. for Archibald Constable and Co., 1818 Three volumes. First edition, with half-titles. Bound in contemporary full brown speckled calf, with contrasting red and green labels lettered in gilt to the spines, spine compartments ruled in gilt, board edges stamped in blind, blue speckled page edges. Very good, with some wear and rubbing to the extremities, rubbing and minor scratches to the boards, former owner's bookplates to the front pastedowns, some light spotting and minor toning to the first and last pages of text, Volume 2 with some spotting to the page edges, a few minor creases to the otherwise bright and clean pages. Overall, a clean and presentable set in a contemporary binding, free of any repairs or restoration. Rob Roy is a historical novel that tells the story of Frank Osbaldistone, an Englishman who travels to Northumberland during the 1715 Jacobite Rebellions in pursuit of restoring his father's wealth and honor and marrying the woman with whom he has fallen in love. Along the way, Frank meets the novel's hero, Rob Roy MacGregor, a gentlemanly outlaw and the notorious leader of the Highlanders, who assists Frank in his quests. Scott based his titular hero on the Rob Roy of Scottish folklore, who is sometimes referred to as the "Scottish Robin Hood." One of the author's most popular novels, Rob Roy is noted for its descriptions of the living conditions endured by many early 18th century Scots and its use of the Scots dialect. Rob Roy was first published by Scott as a novel "by the author of 'Waverley'" and is therefore known as one of the Waverley novels.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        Memoirs of The Duke of Marlborough,

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown,, 1818-9. With his Original Correspondence: collected from the Family Records at Blenheim, and other Authentic Sources, illustrated with Portraits, Maps, and Military Plans. Three volumes quarto (269 × 212 mm). Contemporary calf by A Milne of Forres, ink-stamps to front pastedowns, red lettering- and green numbering-pieces, flat spine, compartments formed by triple fillet rolls containing a quatrefoil tool gilt, edges marbled. Portrait frontispiece to each, 3 other portraits, and 4 further plates, 7 pages of facsimile manuscript, 15 maps, 9 folding with dispositions in colour, one of these with a situational overlay, one with a double overlay, one folding uncoloured, 3 full-page genealogical tables, 2 illustrations to the text. Half-titles bound in to volumes II and III. Slightly rubbed, a couple of small chips from labels, one map misfolded and standing proud at the fore-edge, light browning throughout, a little heavier to the maps and plates which have off-set to the text, but overall a very good set. First edition. Coxe was "the first biographer to use Marlborough's correspondence … the best early biography" (Bruce). This was a book that helped to establish Coxe's reputation as a historian, leading J.H. Plumb, the eminent historian of the eighteenth century "to bracket him with T. B. Macaulay and Dr Johnson as one of the fathers of modern biography" (ODNB). Marlborough seems effectively to have become one of the lost figures of British history, somewhat like James Wolfe, and similarly to the victor of Quebec, Marlborough's importance relates to his victory in a campaign which truly redefined the balance of world power. As his illustrious descendant Winston Churchill expatiated; "'There are few successful commanders,' says Creasy, 'on whom Fame has shone so unwillingly as upon John Churchill, Duke of Marlborough.' I believe this is true; and it is an interesting historical study to examine the causes which have made so great a contrast between the glory and importance of his deeds and the small regard of his countrymen for his memory … he never fought a battle that he did not win, nor besieged a fortress he did not take. Amid all the chances and baffling accidents of war he produced victory with almost mechanical certainty… he never rode off any field except as victor. He quitted war invincible". Bookplates of the Cullen House Library of the countess of Seaforth to the front pastedowns, inked inscriptions to the title pages of each. The binder Alexander Milne "died on 22 February 1849 in his 70th year. Mr Milne belonged to a family of Milne, in the parish of Urquhart … Mr Milne went to Forres about 1798 as master of the Grammar School. He subsequently started as a bookseller. I have not been able to find out when he made the transition from dominie to bookbinder, but one of his bookbindings in the National Library of Scotland has a donor's inscription of 1814, so it must have been before that date" (NLS Scottish Book Trade Index). A well-provenanced, wide-margined copy in an unsophisticated - in both possible senses - Scottish binding.

        On the Fire-Damp of Coal Mines, and on Methods of Lighting the Mines So as to Prevent Its Explosion" (Davy) & "An Account of an Invention for Giving Light in Explosive Mixtures of Fire-Damp in Coal Mines, by Consuming the Fire-Damp"(Davy) in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Volume 106, 1816, pp. 1-22, 23-24 WITH An Essay towards the Calculus of Functions Part I and II (Babbage) in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Volume 105, 1816, Part I pp. 1-22, 23-24, Part II 179-256 WITH "On the laws which regulate the polarisation of light by reflection from transparent bodies" (Brewster) in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Volume 105, 1815, Parts I and II, pp. 125-159

      FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT AND DESCRIPTION of an invention some have argued rescued the Industrial Revolution, Humphrey Davy&#39;s Safety Lamp (this published prior to Davy&#39;s own 1818 book on the subject). & & "Two great events amazed Britain in 1815: the victory of Wellington over Napoleon and the victory of Davy over mine gases. The Industrial Revolution was in danger of stalling in the early 19th c. due to the dangers in mining with contemporary lamps that used flame and ignited explosions. A disaster near Newcastle in 1812 killed 101 miners, and more than two-thirds of the coal mines in England were considered too dangerous to work because of their levels of coal gas. & & "In 1815 Davy was invited by the Chairman of a &#39;Society for Preventing Accidents in Coal Mines&#39; to invent a solution... Davy had earlier studied flames and their propagation and noted that flames could not propagate through small holes. Thus his solution was merely to surround the lamp with a cylinder of wire mesh that still left the flame open to the atmosphere. The mesh conducted away the heat of the flame, thus cooling it so that the temperature methane would encounter at the lamp would be lower than its flash point. The flame itself could not penetrate the mesh...Although the flame and combustible gas were in open contact, there would be no explosion" (Greenberg, A Chemical History Tour, 184-185). & & Davy published these two papers in Philosophical Transactions in late 1815 and early 1816. In 1818 he was made a Baronet for his service to Britain&#39;s industry. & & ALSO in this volume is Part II of Babbage&#39;s seminal &#39;An Essay towards the Calculus of Functions,&#39; his most important mathematical work. "Babbage believed that his new scheme would serve as a generalized calculus to include all problems capable of analytical formulation and it is possible to see here a hint of the inspiration for his concept of the Analytical Engine. While the work on the engines and his other scientific, social and political activities caused him virtually to abandon mathematical research at the age of thirty, the calculus of functions was the area he often yearned to continue. In fact, the calculus of functions was not taken up by other workers, and it is the aspect of Babbage&#39;s mathematical work that modern mathematicians find the most fascinating" (Dubbey, The Mathematical Work of Charles Babbage). & & ALSO INCLUDED: First editions of Charles Babbage&#39;s first papers as well as his most important contribution to mathematics, the calculus of functions. & & ALSO INCLUDED: First edition of &#39;Brewster&#39;s Angle, "one of Brewster&#39;s most important contributions to the science of physics" (Molecular Expressions Website). CONDITION & DETAILS: Philosophical Transactions Volume for the year MDCCCXV (1815) and MDCCCXVI (1816) Ex-libris bearing only a miniscule "Athenaeum Library, Liverpool" stamp and at the foot (margin) of some of the plates.
