      Leipzig, Brockhaus Verlag, 1819-1824.. 5. Aufl. xxxii, 935; 3 Bl., 928; 1028; 960; 944; xvi, 968; xvi, 990; xvi, 968; 8 Bl., 1007; xxxii, 1013; xiv, 1133; xlviii, 772, xlvii, 8 Bl.; 747, liii; 761, xxiv; xii, 690 Seiten, 8°, OHLdr.. Einband berieben, Rücken und Kapitale teils eingerissen und mit Rep.Band gesichert, feste Blöcke, Papier altersbedingt etwas abgedunckelt, aber kaum fleckig, innen eigentlich in sehr guten und sauberen Zustand. ---------------------------------------------------------- Brockhaus, (1772 - 1823), als Sohn des Kaufmanns und Ratsherrn Johann Heinrich in Düsseldorf zum Kaufmann ausgebildet. Ein kurzer Studienaufenthalt in Leipzig 1793/94 legte den Grundstein für seine umfassende Allgemeinbildung. 1796 gründete B. in Dortmund mit zwei Kompagnons eine eigene Großhandelsfirma für englische Manufakturwaren. Nach einem Zerwürfnis mit seinen Partnern entschloß er sich, nach Holland zu gehen, in das Hauptabsatzgebiet seines Unternehmens; zunächst in Arnheim, ließ er sich 1802 in Amsterdam nieder und machte sich selbständig. Wegen der Auswirkungen, die die Kontinentalsperre auf das Geschäft hatte, wechselte B. 1805 zum Buchhandel und gründete in Amsterdam die Buchhandlung Rohloff & Comp. (seit 1807 Kunst- und Industrie-Comptoir). Seit 1814 trägt der Verlag den Namen F. A. Brockhaus. Auf der Leipziger Buchhändlermesse zu Michaelis 1808 kaufte B. die Rechte an einem unvollendeten Konversationslexikon, das 1796 von Renatus Gotthelf Löbel und Christian Wilhelm Franke begonnen worden war. Den Restbestand dieses Werkes lieferte er seit 1809 unter dem neuen Titel Conversations-Lexikon oder kurz gefaßtes Handwörterbuch (6 Bde.) aus; 1809 und 1811 erschienen zwei Ergänzungsbände. B. pendelte zunächst zwischen Amsterdam und Leipzig, siedelte mit dem Verlag 1811 ins ostthüringische Altenburg über und verlegte 1817/18 den Firmensitz schließlich nach Leipzig, wo er eine eigene Druckerei errichtete. 1818 wurde er Leipziger Bürger und baute systematisch seinen Verlag aus. Er pflegte Literatur und Wissenschaft und wurde der erste Verleger Schopenhauers, zunächst von "Die Welt als Wille und Vorstellung" (1819), später von dessen Gesamtwerk. Bis zu B.' Tod zählte der Verlag u.a. Friedrich von Raumer, Henrik Steffens, Friedrich Rückert und Johann Heinrich Voß zu seinen Autoren. ... Das Konversationslexikon wurde ein großer Erfolg; die fünfte Auflage erschien 1819/20 in zehn Bänden unter dem Titel Allgemeine Deutsche Real-Encyklopädie für die gebildeten Stände (Conversations-Lexicon). In den knapp 18 Jahren seines Wirkens in Leipzig rückte B. in die erste Reihe der deutschen und international anerkannten Verleger auf. Er kämpfte mit seinen Standesgenossen erfolgreich gegen Nachdruck und Zensur und konnte seinem Sohn Heinrich, der in der Leitung des Unternehmens nachfolgte, ein wohlbestelltes Haus übergeben. Seine entscheidende Leistung lag darin, daß er den Namen Brockhaus zum Synonym für Konversationslexika machte und die deutsche Lexikographie im 19.Jh. zu ihren großen Erfolgen führte. (DBE) - Hier die wohl interessanteste Ausgabe des Lexikons in der Originalfassung, laut Brockhaus zufolge die, die die "aufgeregte politische Stimmung des Jahres 1819 verraten" habe - Bibliotheca Lexicorum 67.

        Autograph letter signed, concerning the lunar method for calculating longitude

      N.P. [?Paris], 1819. Manuscript letter, 231 x 186 mm., on a bifolium sheet, letter comprising first page with three blank pages, dated and signed by Rossel, slightly chipped but fine. D'Entrecasteaux's successor on longitude. Rossel, astronomer of the expedition in search of La Pérouse, writes to Louis Marie Bajot, inspector-general of the library of the Ministry of the Marine and editor of the Annales Maritimes et Coloniales, who had asked Rossel to review some articles on the lunar method. Rossel reports that the method was unsatisfactory and should be abandoned since the difficulty of accurately measuring the height of the moon is too great and liable to "grandes erreurs".Rossel joined the Recherche at the age of 26, one of the vessels under the command of Bruni d'Entrecasteaux dispatched in 1791 to solve the mystery of La Pérouse. The d'Entrecasteaux expedition was remarkable for its talented scientific members, including the naturalist Jacques Labillardière, hydrographer Charles-François Beautemps-Beaupré and astronomer Ambroise Pierson. Although differences in social origin and political allegiance proved a source of ongoing tension amongst the officers, overall the scientists worked co-operatively. The practical application of astronomy to navigation was an important one for these men, and during their stay in Tasmania Rossel constructed a temporary observatory for this purpose.Some years later, Rossel took on the editing of the official voyage account which was published in 1808, eight years after Labillardiere's account. In the official account the subject of longitude is treated in detail, forming a valuable explanatory text on the limitations of astronomical and lunar methods: "Rossel devoted the whole of the second volume of the official Voyage to an exposition of the methods used by himself and others in taking and correcting astronomical observations made during the voyage, together with detailed tables setting out the resulting calculations of latitude and longitude. By this means, he hoped, readers would be able to judge for themselves the probable accuracy of these estimates, especially those of longitude. Like Beautemps-Beaupré's appendix to the first volume, this became a kind of instructional treatise on the subject" (Horner, Looking for La Pérouse, p.41).Furthermore, in preparing material for the press Rossel cross-referenced the results with observations taken at Greenwich and supplied by the Astronomer Royal Nevil Maskelyne. The intention was to produce longitude bearings more accurate than those of Captain Cook, which had remained the benchmark of navigational accuracy.This letter reflects Rossel's experience reconciling the sciences of astronomy and navigation, and the high regard accorded by his peers. By this stage the use of marine chronometers was gaining widespread acceptance for longitude calculation as the lunar method became obsolete.

         Lettre autographe (de la main de son secrétaire) signée par Cambacérès en date de Bruxelles le 21 mars 1819, et adressée au jurisconsulte et avocat Dejoly à Paris

      Bruxelles, le 21 mars, 1819, in 8°, de 2pp., - On y joint: Une belle lettre calligraphiée de l'avocat Dejoly adresse au Prince archichancelier Cambacérès, en date du 6 juin 1812, pour obtenir un droit de reconnaissance de noblesse pour un citoyen Belge néerlandais, député d'Issel-Supérieur dans la Hollande annexée, en vertu du décret impérial du 26 août 1811. Datée de Paris le 6 juin 1812, de 2 pp. in folio avec cachet, et note pour suite au Procureur Général de la main de Cambacérès en marge, avec sa signature. Il s'agit d'une mise au point avec Deloly de la contestation entreprise par le Duc de Cambacérès contre le Duc d'Orléans. Après les Cent jours, Cambacérès est en effet en exil en Belgique. La seconde Restauration se montra sévère pour Cambacérès: il perd ses dotations, doit s'exiler comme régicide, et il est exclu de l'Académie française. Il se rend à Bruxelles, où il descend à l'hôtel Wellington, avec Lavollée et deux valets de chambre, puis à Amsterdam. En 1818, il est autorisé à rentrer en France. Dans cette lettre, il confirme à Dejoly que Mr Bonnet se charge de sa défense. demande la raison qui fait que cette affaire traîne en longueur, et voudrait pouvoir clore ce dossier avant son entour à Paris. Demande à Dejoly de tenir Mr. Thibon au courant du dossier, et adresse à à Dejoly les compliments de Mr. Lavollée (en exil avec lui). Cambacérès, initié à Montpellier, avant la Révolution, avait franchi les grades maçonniques successifs et exerça de 1805 à 1814, les fonctions de Grand-Maître adjoint du Grand-Orient de France. Etienne-Louis-Hector Dejoly (1756-1837) avocat au Parlement de Paris, plaida pour Cagliostro dans l'affaire du collier de la Reine. Enrichi par son mariage, la Révolution assura sa fortune politique. Il reprit ses fonctions d'avocat sous le Directoire, puis devint avocat au Conseil d'Etat. En maçonnerie il fut Garde des sceaux de la Gde Loge d'Administration, 33e membre du Sup. Conseil et Officier d'honneur du Gd Consistoire des Rites et du Grand Orient. ¶ Ligou Dict. de la F.M. p.190 & 348

        The Vampyre; A Tale

      London: Sherwood, Neely, and Jones,, 1819. 4 works in one, octavo. Contemporary calf, spine gilt-tooled in compartments with an olive morocco title label, sides bordered with a single gilt rule, blue speckled edges. With the half-titles, except that of Ina. Contemporary armorial bookplate. Spine and corners slightly rubbed, a little restoration to the joints and ends, some minor marks and scratches to the sides, slight spotting to the leaves of Ina, but on the whole remarkably clean and fresh internally, a very good copy indeed. First edition, in a handsome contemporary calf binding, of what is generally considered the first vampire novel in the English language. The Vampyre was conceived during the same competitive story-telling evening as Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, and was written by Byron's doctor, John William Polidori (1795?-1821). Henry Colburn first published it on 1 April 1819 in his New Monthly Magazine, with the subtitle "A Tale by Lord Byron"; and the first issue of Sherwood, Neely and Jones's book also has Byron's name on the title (that issue is now unobtainably rare); this is the third issue, as usual, with the first gathering reset in 23 lines. Polidori sought an injunction against Colburn, while Byron disowned it, publishing his vampire fragment conceived the same evening with Mazeppa by way of a disclaimer. "Although by no means the first appearance of the vampire in European literature, Polidori's tale established the prototype later developed in Sheridan Lefanu's 'Carmilla' and Bram Stoker's Dracula" (ODNB). Although the book was successful, Polidori made little from it; he committed suicide two years later. This copy is bound together with three other contemporary works, giving it an appealing literary context. The first two are plays: a second edition of Ina, a Tragedy, by Mrs Wilmot, an Anglo-Saxon drama printed by John Murray in 1815; the next is a second edition, with the half title, of Fazio, A Tragedy, the first book published by Henry Hart Milman (1791-1868, winner of the Newdigate poetry prize in 1812 with "Apollo Belvedere", fellow of Brasenose College, Oxford from 1814, and elected Oxford's Professor of Poetry in 1821), a Florentine drama with a touch of alchemy, printed in Oxford in 1816. The last work is a first edition, with the half title, of Paris in 1815. A Poem, printed by Murray in 1817. It is the first part of a long poem, here anonymously published, by the Rev George Croly (1780-1860), with its metre modelled on Byron's Childe Harold, expressing, in Romantic tones but with Tory sentiments, his impressions of Paris in the months before Napoleon's defeat at the battle of Waterloo. The second part was published, with Croly's name, in 1821 - the lack of which here asserts the likelihood that this calf binding was indeed a closely contemporary one.

        Die Welt als Wille und Vorstellung. (The World as Will and Idea) Schopenhauer’s Most Important Work—PMM 279

      F. A. Brockhaus, Leipzig 1819 - Schopenhauer’s Most Important Work—PMM 279SCHOPENHAUER, Arthur. Die Welt als Wille und Vorstellung. (The World as Will and Idea), F. A. Brockhaus, Leipzig, 1819. Half-title [mis-bound first section title] + half-title + TP + [V]-XVI + [3]-725 + [726] = Druckfehler (Corrections) with folding plate bound in after page 72, Octavo. First Edition.The extremely scarce first edition of Schopenhauer's main work, "The World as Will and Idea", which became a seminal philosophical work that deeply influenced many important later thinkers, e.g. Nietzsche. The book was printed in about 700-750 copies, but due to the controversial contents and the too "modern" mind of Schopenhauer, the work was met with no sympathy in early 19th century Europe, and the book sold very poorly. The total lack of initial impact and the terribly bad sale-numbers caused the destruction of all the remaining copies, and only a very small portion of the original 700 or 750 copies still exist, making the first edition of this work one of the most rare important philosophical works of the 19th century. Schopenhauer actually suspected his publisher of deliberate treachery. Schopenhauer's "modern" mind resulted in a philosophy of nothingness and a pessimistic denial of the identity of change and progress, which are the predominant notions in this his main work. Later thinkers who were much influenced by Schopenhauer include some of the most influential men of the 19th and 20th centuries - Nietzsche, Wagner, Maler, Darwin, Einstein, Jung, Freud, Wittgenstein, Popper, Horkheimer, Beckett, Borges, Tolstoy, Thomas Mann, Knut Hamsun etc, etc. The "pessimistic philosophy" that Schopenhauer founded took its starting-point in the philosophy of Kant, but he heavily criticized most of the important contemporary philosophers, who were also influenced by Kant (i.e. Hegel, Fichte, Schelling etc.). Like Kant, convinced that scientific explanation would never be able to give a true explanation of reality, the appearances of which are all that we will ever be able to at least apply with a form of systematization and classification, which resembles knowledge, Schopenhauer concludes that all intellectual life is governed by the will and passions. In Schopenhauer's philosophy, the Will becomes the driving force of man and the world; the intellect is subordinate to this. Thus, when desire comes before thought, and will comes before being, human beings must live in the realm of desire, and by this desire they are perpetually tormented. "Kant's principal difficulty, the existence of matter apart from our knowledge of it, is expressed by the very inadequacy of our knowledge: it is the cosmic will, an uncontrollable force superior to human will, which, in the individual will, can only be broken by leading a negative ‘good life’, in chastity, voluntary poverty, fasting and self-denial. The result is nothingness, and the aim of the saint is non-existence" (PMM 279).CONDITION: Contemporary paper-covered boards. Gilt-lettered label to spine. Boards and spine with some wear.

        Poisson plat énorme vu en mer le 23 Février 1819 après de l'île de l'Amirauté

      on board the Uranie: 23 February, 1819. Ink sketch on sheet of laid paper with watermark, 148 x 220 mm.; roughly torn at all four corners where apparently mounted on wax at some time, but very good. Pacific ocean fish depicted by the Uranie's artist. Charming ink sketch of an "enormous flat fish" seen on board the Uranie during the Freycinet expedition on 23 February 1819, near the Admiralty Islands, by the voyage artist Jacques Arago.Arago (1790-1855) was the official artist on Freycinet's voyage, and is known for the witty and caustic account he later wrote as much as for his fine sketches. Arago was the third of four brothers who excelled in diverse professions, the most notable being his eldest brother François, the scientist and politician. Arago's undoubted artistic ability attracted the attention of the naval authorities who chose him for the demanding role of draughtsman for the Freycinet expedition. By all accounts a charming, gregarious and eccentric man, these attributes stood him in good stead during the voyage, and are reflected in the sketches he made.Such a drawing gives an unusual glimpse of the role of the artist on board, who was not only expected to make the grand views and scenes familiar from the voyage accounts, but also to make sure that everything notable about the natural history of the voyage was recorded. This ray was very spectacular, "at least eight feet in length", the note comments. There was evidently some conjecture about its species: in pencil a second person has written, 'is this not a Céphaloptère Giorna?' ("n'est ce pas le Céphaloptère Giorna?"). The "Giorna Ray" was named by Lacépède for Giorna, a professor at the University of Turin. Interestingly, in Cuvier's Dictionnaire des sciences naturelles (1817) the longest of the species was recorded as six feet; it is quite likely that the published parts of Cuvier's work, a benchmark of natural history, were carried on board the Uranie.Neither Arago's own Narrative of a Voyage round the World nor the narrative of the Freycinet account records the event; Arago merely noted that on the 23rd he was terribly seasick, and did not recover until they saw Rota, where he 'contrived, though with difficulty, to make a few sketches' (p. 271).

        Lectures on Physiology, Zoology and the Natural History of Man, delivered at the Royal College of Surgeons

      London: J. Callow, 1819. Octavo, with five portrait plates and seven folding craniology engravings; a good copy from the library of the Birmingham Medical Institute; later nineteenth century red cloth showing some wear to extremities. Thinking without a soul. First edition of a controversial thesis on the anatomy and physiology of the human species, disseminating the five-fold racial schemata propounded by German scientist Johann Blumenbach throughout the English speaking world.Lectures on Physiology is the work of the celebrated English surgeon William Lawrence, best remembered for his pioneering work in the emerging science of ophthalmology. Lawrence openly acknowledges the great influence Blumenbach has exerted upon his studies: 'the principal subject of the following pages has received its most numerous and successful illustrations from your sagacity, industry, and learning... I think it a mere act of justice to dedicate this work to you.'Some sections of the book, especially those treating human variation and craniology, are lifted directly from Blumenbach. Furthermore, Lawrence adheres to the fivefold division of the human species expounded by Blumenbach (namely Caucasian, Mongolian, Ethiopian, American and Malay). Lectures on Physiology reproduces the five portraits included in Blumenbach's opus to illustrate the five races of man, of which the Tahitian prince Omai is an example of the Malay type (the plate is taken from the famous portrait of Omai by Sir Joshua Reynolds).The book caused consternation amongst theologians and the establishment by insisting that all mental thought was purely a result of activity in the brain. By so doing, Lawrence denied the existence of an immaterial immortal soul occurring independently of the body - an assertion uncomfortably close to atheism. Even Lawrence's mentor, the affable surgeon John Abernethy, asserted he had gone too far. Lawrence was forced to withdraw the book or face professional censure, with the possibility of losing his surgical posting at Bethlehem and Bridewell hospitals. Nonetheless, its intrinsic utility motivated ten subsequent printings, including a pirate edition (Lawrence could not copyright his work as it contravened the scripture).Throughout this book the anatomical and behavioural similarities between humans and primates are examined in some detail. The conclusions tend towards variation rather than evolution through time; as such 'Lawrence's perceptive observations on inheritance do not make him a legitimate precursor of Darwin and Wallace' (DNB).

        Ordered by the House of Commons, to be printed, 5 April and 6 May 1819

      London: No printer,, 1819. Folio (327 × 195 mm), pp. [iv], 355. Recent blue boards, printed paper spine label to spine, sprinkled edges. Bookplate of F. Faithfull Begg to front pastedown. A very good copy. First edition of the House of Commons reports on the resumption of cash payments, comprising the first and second reports along with minutes of evidence, and appendices. "The Suspension of Cash Payments by the Bank of England, which had been effected by the Order in Council of 26 February 1797, and confirmed by the Bank Restriction Act of the same year (37 Geo. III c.45), was continued by an Act of 1803 (44 Geo. III c.1), 'until Six Months after the Ratification of a Definitive Treaty of Peace'. After the Peace of Paris however the Resumption of Cash Payments was postponed by successive Acts, the latest of which, in 1818, had fixed the date for Resumption as 5 July 1819. Early in the Session of 1819 the Chancellor of the Exchequer intimated in the House of Commons that he would bring forward a measure for continuing the Restriction Act for a short period; but, soon after, he announced that in consequence of a communication from the Directors of the Bank (who preferred to 'submit to the Consequences of a Parliamentary Inquiry' rather than consent to a temporary and inadequate measure) he proposed to move for a Committee of inquiry. On 2 February 1819, on the motion of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, it was agreed that a Committee of Secrecy consisting of twenty-one members should be appointed 'to consider of the State of the Bank of England, with reference to the Expediency of the Resumption of Cash Payments at the period fixed by law, and into such other matters as are connected therewith; and to report to the House such information relative thereto, as may be disclosed without injury to the Public interests, with their observations'. On 3 February the members were chosen by ballot … On 4 February the Lords appointed a Secret Committee, with the same terms of reference as the Commons … The Commons' Committee took evidence from twenty-four witnesses between 11 February and 1 May: the Lords' from twenty-five witnesses between 8 February and 30 April. Sixteen of them, including Ricardo, were heard by both Committees" (Sraffa, The Works and Correspondence of David Ricardo V, 350?-351). Ricardo's evidence to the Commons, given on 4 and 19 March, is contained on pp. 133?-142 and 227?-232 of the volume offered here.

      Influence des sciences sur l'humanité des peuples. Discours prononcé dans la séance publique des quatre Académies, le 24 Avril 1819.Charles Dupin (1784-1873), essentially a distinguished mathematician, was for many years professor of mechanics in the Consevatoire des Arts et Métiers in Paris. In 1813 he published an important work on Développements de Géométrie, in which is introduced the conception of conjugate tangents of a point of a surface, and of the indicatrix. It contains also the theorem known as "Dupin's theorem". [See, e.g. Cajori, History of Mathematics, p.288]. In that same year, Dupin was elected to the Institut de France, and was also elected to the Académie des Sciences in 1818.
