        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.

        Manuscript Ledger]: "Waste Book, Downpatrick" (July-December, 1819)

      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.

        Famiglie Celebri Italiane [Famous Italian Families] Count Pompeo Litta (1781 - 1852). Dispensa 159. Malatesta di Rimini, Parte I. Luigi Passerini. 1869 Dispensa 161. Malatesta di Rimini, Parte II. Luigi Passerini. 1869 Dispensa 162. Malatesta di Rimini, Parte III Ed Ultima. Luigi Passerini. 1870

      Famiglie Celebri Italiane covers 150 families and runs to a total of 184 Dispensas which appeared from 1819 to 1883. Only the most notable of noble houses in Italy, those who were especially "famous", or distinguished in some way, were worthy of Litta's notice. His legacy is a fascinating insight into the military, political and ecclesiastical dynasties of Italy. At the time of Litta's death in 1852, only 113 Dispensa had been published. Luigi Passerini Orsini de 'Rilli, Federico Odorici and Federico Stefani collaborated to complete the series, with contributions by Francesco di Mauro of Polvica and Costantino Coda (although errors, such as the reversal of colours in coats of arms, occasionally occurred). In 1862, the rights and documents were transferred to Luciano Basadonna, who republished the whole work. Each genealogy (Tavola) is printed on double-leaf letterpress plates, versos blank (unless otherwise stated) and is inset with brief biographies of the most prominent characters of each of the family, together with other items of interest, such as famous portraits (some with tissue guards) and drawings of coins or medals. Some Dispensas include maps of territory owned or governed by the families. In some fascicles, there are also drawings of castles and other buildings, such as family monuments and tombs, many of which had already been destroyed at the time of publication; thus, these documents are also an important art historical record. The Malatesta family rose to prominence in the fourteenth century, when Malatesta da Verrucchio (died 1312) made himself master of Rimini by slaughtering his rivals. The family's lands were extended, sometimes by fair means (papal investitures) and sometimes by foul. Many of the family were notorious for their crimes and cruelty. One, Giovanni Malatesta, is known today for the murder, in 1285, of his wife, Francesca da Polenta, and her lover, his own brother Paolo: the crime being recorded in Dante's "Inferno". However, two of them were men of virtue: Carlo (died 1429), a staunch supporter of the Church, represented Gregory XII at the Council of Constance, whilst Galeotto Roberto (died 1432), became a Franciscan. Dispensa 159. Malatesta di Rimini, Parte I. Luigi Passerini. 1869. Contents: Tavola I - VII; Monumento e Quadri Malatestiani x 2 (black and white drawings of monuments; one with a tissue-guarded coloured image of a man and a woman). Dispensa 161. Malatesta di Rimini, Parte II. Luigi Passerini. 1869. Contents: Tavola VIII - XVI; Frammento di un Monumento e Ritratti Malatestiano (black and white drawings of tombs, with two tissue-guarded coloured portraits); Medaglie e Monete Malatestiane Dispensa 162.

        Two autograph letters signed, to William Tooke.

      New Lanark & London: , 1819. 2 letters, quarto (leaf size: 227 x 185 mm). 5 pp. total. The first folded once, first page crosshatched, with integral address leaf. Loss to edge of second leaf of first letter from seal as usual, small traces of mount to address leaf of one and to verso of the other, both in excellent condition. Correspondence from Welsh social reformer Robert Owen to the politician and soon-to-be President of the Royal Society William Tooke. In the first, dated 14 November 1819, Owen speaks of the growing need for reform within the country and of his prior failure to act in full accordance with his beliefs: "to attain any great good I must act in complete unison with the principles which I have patiently advocated, which I [hold] to be true and which, if carried fairly into execution, cannot fail to give immediate and permanent relief to the working classes without injury to the higher ranks". He then explains that he has sent copies of a recently written address to the current Prime Minister, Lord Liverpool, several members of parliament and the Lord Chairman of the Committee in the hopes that it might be submitted to the government for serious consideration. In the second, he apologises for his late response to Tooke's previous letter: "my whole time from early to late has been slowly occupied with members of parliament and the House of Com. [sic] respecting two measures in which I feel a deep interest or your two kind and obliging notes should not have been so long unanswered". This may refer to the Cotton Mills and Factories Act of 1819, which Owen had originally drafted in 1815. The legislation placed restrictions on the working hours of children and ruled that no children under the age of nine were to be employed. At the close of his letter Owen reaffirms his plans to join Tooke later that day at his brother's house, the economist Thomas Tooke. One year later Owen would compose his most important work, the Report to the County of Lanark, in which he advocated that hours of work become "a superior form of exchange medium. Here Owen first proclaimed at length his belief that labour was the foundation of all value, a principle of immense importance to later socialist thought. The Report also offered a novel account of the relationship between money and the expansion and contraction of the market" (ODNB).

Whittemore, 1819 8vo. [215 x 133 x 16 mm]. Bound together in contemporary straight-grained blue goatskin, the covers with a border composed of a gilt triple fillet and a gilt and a blind roll, with an inner panel of two gilt fillets with a blind roll in between and gilt foliate and floral tools at the outer corners, enclosing a lozenge-shaped centre built up with foliate and floral tools. The spine divided into five panels, with gilt tooled bands, the upper panel tooled with the Hardcastle crest, the others with various foliate tools, the corners of the edges of the boards tooled with a gilt roll, blue silk endleaves and doublures with a border composed of a repeated gilt foliate tool and a blind roll, gilt edges. (Expertly refurbished where rubbed). The fourth item has a number of manuscript corrections. They are all in good condition and the binding is most attractive, especially with the silk inside. The crest on the spine indicates that it is a family copy, probably belonging to one of Hardcastle's nine children (four daughters and three sons survived into adulthood). Joseph Hardcastle (1752-1819) was a merchant and evangelical activist with an entry in DNB. In 1791 the Sierra Leone Company was established to protect native Africans from slave dealers and Hardcastle was appointed a director, along with William Wilberforce. He corresponded over several years with Wilberforce on matters relating to slavery and put on a display of the instruments of cruelty used on the slave ships at his house at Hatcham. In 1795 he helped to found the London Missionary Society and was elected its first treasurer, and in 1804 he became a member of the first committee of the British and Foreign Bible Society. He is said to have supported seventeen evangelical and philanthropic organisations, and was a generous benefactor to numerous deserving causes. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Le Antichità Romane, ossia raccolta delle piu interessanti vedute di Roma antica [WITH] Le Antichita dei contorni di Roma.

      Rome For the Author and Vincenzo Poggioli -1823 but 1829 and 1824-6 1819 - Two volumes. Landscape folio (54 by 74cm). I. 101 plates by and after Rossini, without letterpress title; II. letterpress title, preface, table of contents, 73 engraved plates; plates bright and clean. Uniform contemporary half vellum gilt, blue marbled boards, spine in six compartments with raised bands, morocco lettering piece, gilt. A fine set. An excellent set of this outstanding collection of views of Roman antiquities by the famous engraver Luigi Rossini. "The mantle of Piranesi fell on Luigi Rossini. His plates have strength, especially in dealing with masses of dark masonry" (A.M. Hind, A History of Engraving & Etching, p.232). Rossini (1790-1857) trained as an architect in Bologna but after moving to Rome in 1814, his financial situation deteriorated and he was forced to change career and become a professional artist and etcher. His depictions of the monumental aspect of the architecture of Rome, its bridges, pillars, arches and vaults, often overgrown, show echoes of his illustrious predecessor Piranesi. Le Antichità Romane was produced in collaboration with Bartolomeo Pinelli, who supplied the costumed figures which enliven Rossini's architectonic and archaeological views, and seems to have been first issued in 1823 as titled below the frontispiece ("Frontespizio delle Antichita Romane. Divise in cento Tavole"). It was reprinted in 1829 as Le Antichità Romane, ossia raccolta delle piu interessanti vedute di Roma Antica, but letterpress title-pages appear elusive for both editions. This copy is uniformly bound with the first edition of Rossini's volume on the Roman countryside. Millard, Italian, 116; Berlin Cat. 1917; RIBA, Early printed books, 2847 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Organon der Heilkunst. (2)

      Zweite Auflage. - Dresden, in der Arnoldschen Buchhandlung, 1819, 8, 374, (2) pp., Halbledereinband der Zeit. Zweite Auflage, sehr seltene erste Abdruck!*)"Bei der zweiten Auflage 1819 ging dann Hahnemann - rein äußerlich betrachtet - schon auf der Titelseite einen Schritt weiter er nannte sein Werk schlankweg "Organon der Heilkunst". Damit wollte er zum Ausdruck bringen, daß er keine andere Heilkunde anerkenne, als die seinige, und daß nur sie die einzige und wahre Kunst sei.""Auch das Motto änderst er. De ersten Auflage hatte er das Gellertsche Wort mit auf den Weg gegeben: "Die Wahrheit, die wir alle nötig haben, die uns als Menschen glücklich macht, ward von der weissen Hand, die sie uns zugedacht , nur leicht verdeckt, nicht tief vergraben.""Bei der zweiten Auflage aber setzte er die Worte "Aude sapere" - "wage, zu Wissen" oder wie Hahnemann es kurz und treffend einmal selbst verdeutsch hat: "Habe das Herz, Einsicht zu haben" - auf die Titelseite. Damit wollte er seine Fachgenossen aufrütteln und ihnen zurufen: "Fasset nur erst den herzhaften Entschluß, gewinnt's über euch und bebet nicht vor den Schwierigkeiten zurück." Richard Haehl. Organon, (6. Auflage), Einleitung*) Auf dem Titelblatt: "Nachricht für den Käufer: Der Haupttiel auf Velinpapier, mit dem Bildniß des Herrn Verfassers, wird zu Michaeli d. J. unentgeldlich nachgeliefert." Arnoldische Buchhandlung.Schmidt No. 4 (diese Variante unbekannt siehe Interimstitelabbildung p.45)
