        Nouveau système de minéralogie traduit du suédois sous les yeux de l'auteur ...

      Paris, Méquignon-Marvis, 1819, in 8°, de VI-315pp., demi-veau blond époque, dos lisse orné, p. de t. bleue, bel exemplaire. Edition originale française corrigée par Berzélius. Ouvrage fondamental dans lequel il expose sa nouvelle méthode de classification des minéraux d'après leur composition chimique plutôt que sur leurs qualités physiques. En cela il s'opposera à Haüy. Mitscherlich reconnaîtra que la composition chimique reste un élément déterminant et James Dwight Dana reprendra en 1837 les classifications de Berzélius. Toutes les classifications ultérieures seront des classifications chimico-minéralogiques, encore utilisées de nos jours. ¶ DSB II p.90 "In accord with the interest that Swedish chemists had long shown in mineralogical studies, Berzelius had from time to time analyzed minerals that came into his hands. The discovery of cerium was the result of such an analysis. In 1812 he received a gift of a large number of minerals which he later decided to classify. The methods of mineral classification existing at that time were based on appearance and physical properties. These seemed highly unsystematic to Berzelius. He concluded from his analytical experience that a logical classification could be based only on chemical composition. In his original system, first published in 1814, he arranged the minerals in terms of their basic constituents, although he later revised this and placed chief emphasis on the acid component. Like most of Berzelius' innovations, his system of mineral classification was at first received with some hostility but this was gradually overcome. During his visit to Paris in 1818 he won the approval of Haüy, the leading minerologist of the day, whose own system was based on physical properties" - Ward & Carozzi 202 - Hoover 123 - Bolton 308.

        Journal of a Route Across India, Through Egypt, to England.

      London: John Murray,, 1819. In the Latter End of the Year 1817, and the Beginning of 1818. Quarto (270 x 203 mm). Recent half calf to style, Greek key roll gilt to spine forming compartments with floral centre-tools gilt, red morocco label, marbled sides and edges. Hand-coloured aquatint frontispiece and 8 similar plates, 2 uncoloured aquatints, one line-drawing, 7 maps and plans including a large folding map, battle-plans with the dispositions coloured. Light offsetting from plates, slightly stronger from folding map. An excellent copy with bright plates, complete with the half-title, errata leaf and directions to the binder. First and only edition, "very scarce, [copies] having been bought up by the noble author" (Willis and Sotheran, cited after Abbey). As his surname indicates, FitzClarence (1794-1842) was the eldest of the ten children born to the Duke of Clarence, later King William IV, by the actress Dorothy Jordan; hence he was nephew to the Prince Regent, to whom this volume is dedicated. After distinguishing himself in the Peninsular War, FitzClarence disturbed his royal relatives by agitating against his former commanding officer. He and his brother were consequently "sent in disgrace to join the 24th light dragoons in India, where the governor-general, Lord Moira, was urged to treat them 'with the strictest discipline, not to say severity' … FitzClarence was Moira's aide-de-camp and as such served in the campaigns of 1816–17 against the Marathas" (ODNB). After the death of his brother in September 1817 he was sent back to England bearing the dispatches of the peace treaty signed with Maharaja Sindhia, travelling via the overland route. "In the long section on Egypt he describes at length his contacts with Salt and Belzoni and gives an interesting account of his visits to the Pyramids with them" (Blackmer). The splendid illustrations after sketches by the author, include four "curious plates" of native troops in uniform — A Gorkah Soldier; The Dromedary and Rocket Corps; Irregular Cavalry, Bengal Army; & Seapoys of the Bombay, Bengal and Madras Armies — which are among the most authentic images of the army of the HEIC.

        Die Welt als Wille und Vorstellung.

      Leipzig: F. A. Brockhaus,, 1819. Octavo (199 x 121 mm). Contemporary green half cloth, spine lettered and ruled in gilt, marbled paper boards. Folding table tipped in opposite page 73 and several diagrams in text. Faint trace of library stamp to title, occasional pencil annotations throughout. Extremities lightly worn, spine ends and corners bruised with some minor rubbing and discolouration to spine, upper edge of text block a little crushed, hinges strengthened with cloth tape; first two leaves professionally restored in the gutter, and a few discreet marginal repairs throughout, contents browned with some spotting and nicks to edges, a couple of tears to margins not affecting text such as those to leaf 12.4, overall a very good copy. First edition of Schopenhauer's principal work, The World as Will and Idea, in which he formulates a pessimistic philosophy, that had the greatest influence on modern thinking. This is one of 750 copies printed; as the book had little initial impact, very few copies still exist. "The notions which had been forming in his mind about man's nature and destiny now found expression, and the conviction that scientific explanation could never do more than systematize and classify the appearances which we call reality led him to assert that it is the will and the passions which are the real determinants of all intellectual life. He was studied by Wagner and Nietzsche, both of whom paid tribute to the influence he had on them; and Herbert Spencer did much to spread the knowledge of his theories" (PMM).

        Kihoki [trans.: Airgun Design]

      One woodcut illus. of the length of the entire airgun depicted on six pp., another woodcut illus. on two pages, & 7 full-page woodcut illus. 14 folding leaves. 8vo, orig. wrappers (backed in paper, minor marginal worming). Shiga Prefecture ("Goshu"): [Privately Printed by the Author], Preface dated 1819. First edition of a very rare book; WorldCat lists only the 1982 reprint. Kunitomo (1778-1840), a native of the gun-making town of Kunitomo in Shiga Prefecture, was an inventor and scientist of great interest. Having lived in Edo for a period of time, he became familiar with Dutch scientific instruments including telescopes. He constructed Japan's first reflecting telescope in 1831 which had a magnification of 60 and was superior to any brought in by the Dutch traders. This allowed Kunitomo to engage in sunspot observations and the study of the topography of the moon. In 1814, following his town's tradition of gun smithing, Kunitomo began to develop the first Japanese airgun, knowledge of which came from the Dutch in Dejima. In 1818, he was lent to make repairs to a European airgun (made by Scheiffel) which the Dutch traders had given the shogun. In the following year, Kunitomo began to manufacture his own airguns (several of which still exist). The gun was able to fire twenty rounds in a relatively short period of time. The text provides an account of the Dutch airgun ("windroer" transliterated to "wuindoruuru"). Kunimoto describes the theory behind the gun, its parts, how to create air pressure by a pumping action, etc. The gun was lubricated with the oil from camellia seeds. The woodcut which extends over six pages depicts the entire length of the gun. The seven full-page woodcuts show various parts of the gun, and the final two-page woodcut depicts a rifleman showing how to hold, pump, and fire the gun. ❧ Nakayama, A History of Japanese Astronomy, p. 197-(for Kunimoto's astronomical achievements).

        Report of the Case of the Trustees of Dartmouth College Against William H. Woodward

      Published by John W. Foster, Portsmouth NH 1819 - Portsmouth NH: Published by John W. Foster, 1819. First edition, in original boards, of one of the most significant and influential of the early cases appearing before the Supreme Court, a landmark decision dealing with the application of the Contract Clause of the United States Constitution to private corporations. The case arose when the president of Dartmouth College was deposed by its trustees, leading to the New Hampshire legislature attempting to force the college to become a public institution and thereby place the ability to appoint trustees in the hands of the governor of New Hampshire. The Supreme Court upheld the sanctity of the original charter of the college, which pre-dated the creation of the State. Dartmouth College was represented by one of its most famous alumni, the orator and politician Daniel Webster. The ruling for the trustees was important for establishing an assurance for all investors in American corporate enterprise that the terms by which they had committed their capital could not be summarily altered by a state, a significant step on encouraging the expansion of American business. Beautifully housed in a custom clamshell box of plum morocco over matching cloth. Seldom seen in the original boards. Some light wear and a few stains to covers; some repairs to spine; light dampstain to last forty or so pages, light foxing to endpapers and title page; an exceptional copy in the original boards, untrimmed and partially unopened, rare thus.

        Voyage of his Majesty`s ship Alceste, to China, Corea, and the island of Lewchew, with an account of her shipwreck.

      London, Murray, 1819 - VI S., 1 Bl., 339 S. 1 Porträt, 5 kolorierte Tafeln und 1 gefalt. Karte (alles in Kupferstich). Dritte Ausgabe dieses Berichts über die Reise der William Pitt Earl Amherst of Arracan mit den Schiffen Alceste (Kapitän Murray Maxwell) und Lyra (Kapitän Basil Hall) nach China (Hinreise über das Kap der Guten Hoffnung und Java, danach Expeditionen in China und Korea und die Rückreise über die Philippinen und Indonesien wieder zürück). - Abbey Travel 559: "An account of a voyage undertaken whilst Lord Amherst`s embassy was in China and Lord Amherst was onboard. It was on this voyage that the people of Luchu [Ryukyu i.e. Okinawa] were first visited by Europeans. On the return journey the ship called at Rio de Janeiro, Cape of Good Hope, Manila and Java before striking a submergedr ock, and was shipwrecked. A vivid primary account of the wreck is given". - Der Autor John McLeod war als Chirurg auf der unter dem Kommando von Kapitän Murray Maxwell segelten Fregatte "Alceste" unterwegs. "Die wissenschaftliche Bedeutung der Amherstschen Gesandschaft liegt in den von den Schiffen `Alceste` und `Lyra` ausgeführten Entdeckungsfahrten im Gelben Meer, dessen N- und O-Küsten der europäischen Kartographie noch unbekannt waren. . Kapitän Maxwell teilte die Geschwader nachdem er die Gesandschaft am Peiho an Land gesetzt hatte. Er selbst drang mit der `Alceste` in den Golf von Liau-tung ein; er ging an dessen W-Seite hinauf bis zum Beginn der Chinesischen Mauer, bei Schan-hai-zwan. Von hier steuerte er zur Liau-tung Halbinsel hinüber, wo er an einer geräumigen Bucht Anker warf, die er `Ross`s Bay` benannte . Wahrscheinlich ist sie identisch mit der Hu-lu-shan-Bay. Nach dessen eigentümlicher Form benannte Maxwell das S-Ende der Liau-tung-Halbinsel `Regent`s Sword`, das südlichste Kap der Halbinsel erhielt den Namen `Charlotte`s Point`, nach der Mutter des Regenten, des späteren Königs George IV. Eine Inselgruppe im S des Kaps wurde `Company`s Group` benannt, der dazwischenliegende Kanal `Saint George`s Channel`. . Mit der Fahrt der `Alceste` und `Lyra`, die die bis dahin unbekannte W-Seite Koreas erschloß, war die Entdeckung jener Halbinsel zu einem ersten Abschluß gebracht worden . Auf der Rückfahrt, die über die Lutschu-Inseln führte, erlitt die `Alceste` Schiffbruch" (Henze I, 65 ff). - Unbeschnitten. Titel mit hs. Namen. Etw. gebräunt.

      London: printed for A. Dry, 1819. 3 volumes, large quarto. (15 7/8 x 12 1/2 inches). Seven section titles. 100 finely hand-coloured aquatint plates, printed in colours, by T. Sutherland, W.J. Bennett, R. Reeve, and D. Havell after J. Stephanoff, C. Wild, R. Cattermole, W. Westall and G. Samuel. Extra-illustrated with an engraved view of Windsor Castle engraved by Sands after Allom, bound into vol. 1. Contemporary calf, rebacked to style, spine with double-raised bands in six compartments, lettered in gilt, marbled endpapersA rare large-paper issue, with pre-publication watermarks, of this important architectural record of the British palaces and among the best known and most wonderful English colour plate books.One of the main glories of Pyne's work is the remarkable pictorial record it offers of the interior decorations and furnishings of Windsor Castle, showing the castle as it was before the extensive alterations carried out from 1824-1828. Also depicted in some detail are St. James's Palace, Carlton House (with a splendid series of now-vanished interiors created for the Prince Regent by Holland with Wyatt and Nash as architects), Kensington Palace, Hampton Court, Buckingham House (including a view of the east front as it was a century before Aston Webb's drastic remodelling carried out in 1913), and Frogmore as remodeled by Wyatt.The plates are beautifully printed colour aquatints with intricate hand colouring by accomplished colourists of the day. Published in both regular and large paper (as here) issues, the work was published at 24 and 36 guineas, respectively. Besides being printed on larger, superior paper, the hand colouring on the large paper issue is more finely accomplished.Abbey Scenery 396/397;Martin-Hardie, pp. 91; Prideaux, p. 348; Tooley 389.

        Deux lettres à Mylord comte d'Aberdeen, sur l'authenticité des inscriptions de Fourmont.

      Paris, Imprimerie Royale, De Bure frères 1819 - in-4, [4]-139 pp., avec 4 planches hors-texte, cartonnage Bradel de papier turquoise, dos lisse orné de filets dorés (reliure de l'époque). Un coin abîmé. Bon exemplaire. En 1728, l'orientaliste Michel Fourmont (1690-1746), frère d'Etienne Fourmont, avait été envoyé avec l'abbé Sevin rechercher des livres et des manuscrits orientaux pour la Bibliothèque du Roi. Il se rendit à cet effet à Constantinople, mais attendit le départ de Sevin pour effectuer de son propre chef un voyage dans les Cyclades et le Péloponnèse en quête d'inscriptions et de médailles ; il était accompagné de son neveu Claude. Il rapporta de Sparte quelques relevés d'inscriptions et de bas-reliefs, qui dès le départ, furent considérés comme des faux par les érudits occidentaux. Au XIXe siècle, comme on le voit, la querelle n'était pas terminée. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Kihoki [trans.: Airgun Design]

      One woodcut illus. of the length of the entire airgun depicted on six pp., another woodcut illus. on two pages, & 7 full-page woodcut illus. 14 folding leaves. 8vo, orig. wrappers (backed in paper, minor marginal worming). Shiga Prefecture ("Goshu"): [Privately Printed by the Author], Preface dated 1819.First edition of a very rare book; WorldCat lists only the 1982 reprint. Kunitomo (1778-1840), a native of the gun-making town of Kunitomo in Shiga Prefecture, was an inventor and scientist of great interest. Having lived in Edo for a period of time, he became familiar with Dutch scientific instruments including telescopes. He constructed Japan's first reflecting telescope in 1831 which had a magnification of 60 and was superior to any brought in by the Dutch traders. This allowed Kunitomo to engage in sunspot observations and the study of the topography of the moon.In 1814, following his town's tradition of gun smithing, Kunitomo began to develop the first Japanese airgun, knowledge of which came from the Dutch in Dejima. In 1818, he was lent to make repairs to a European airgun (made by Scheiffel) which the Dutch traders had given the shogun. In the following year, Kunitomo began to manufacture his own airguns (several of which still exist). The gun was able to fire twenty rounds in a relatively short period of time.The text provides an account of the Dutch airgun ("windroer" transliterated to "wuindoruuru"). Kunimoto describes the theory behind the gun, its parts, how to create air pressure by a pumping action, etc. The gun was lubricated with the oil from camellia seeds.The woodcut which extends over six pages depicts the entire length of the gun. The seven full-page woodcuts show various parts of the gun, and the final two-page woodcut depicts a rifleman showing how to hold, pump, and fire the gun.❧ Nakayama, A History of Japanese Astronomy, p. 197-(for Kunimoto's astronomical achievements).

        Le antichità di Acre [...]

      Messina: Giuseppe Pappalardo, 1819 [ma 1820]. [6]; X; 168; V pagine. 39x28 cm.Rilegatura coeva in mezza pelle e angoli, con alcune abrasioni. Alone di umidità che interessa i fogli di sguardia anteriori e, in modo più marcato, il margine interno di tutte le tavole. Ritratto dell'Autore inciso in antiporta e 34 tavole incise, a piena pagina, in fine. [M077] La colonia greca di Akrai, fondata dai siracusani nel 663 a.C., sorgeva nei pressi dell'attuale Palazzolo Acreide. Grazie alla sua favorevole posizione strategica, raggiunse un notevole splendore. Nel 211 a.C., a seguito della caduta di Siracusa, passò sotto i romani, assumendo il nome di Acre. Dopo il dominio bizantino, nell'827 venne completamente distrutta dagli arabi, rimanendo nell'oblio fino al XVI secolo, quando le sue vestigia vennero scoperte da Tommaso Fazello. Ma fu solo grazie agli scavi intrapresi dal Barone Judica, agli inizi dell'Ottocento, che il sito venne interamente riportato alla luce. Judica dedicò tutta la sua esistenza e tutte le sue notevoli fortune alla  passione per l'archeologia. I numerosissimi reperti rinvenuti durante le sue campagne di scavo ad Akrai furono custoditi ed esposti presso la sua prestigiosa dimora di Palazzolo Acreide che, per questo, divenne tappa obbligata dei viaggiatori del "Grand tour" in Sicilia. La collezione, che ammontava a circa 3000 oggetti, fu successivamente dispersa. Solo in tempi recentissimi alcuni degli oggetti sono stati faticosamente recuperati ed esposti al museo archeologico di Palazzolo Acreide.

      Downpatrick, [Northern Ireland] 1819 - Manuscript ledgers. Two small folios, spanning the months July--December, 1819. [22]pp., [20]pp. The first with one leaf removed at the rear, the second bumped at the corners, both very good. Hand ruled in ink, with three narrow right hand columns for the listing of monetary sums in pounds, shillings, and pence (L.s.d.). Both ledgers contain detailed business accounts that include inventories of merchandise received and sold (food and wine, leather goods, wool, and other sundries), client debts, cash receipts, bills, and related information. Both also have poems written on the last leaf in a different hand: the first ledger with a long two-page poetic song relating to Ireland's heroic Christian heritage; and the second with two poems on the last page, one of which is a manuscript copy of "The Frozen Brook," published in the November, 1819 issue of the Sporting Magazine, and signed "W.U." The poem warns a young maiden, Rosa, to tread carefully lest she lose her beauty, and by insinuation her virginal purity, through a single misstep. Other poems signed "W.U." were published at this time, but his identity is unknown. An intriguing set of ledgers from Downpatrick.
