M., Museum Giersch 2008, Nr. 92, Abb. Seite 1988. Der gebürtiger Wiener Landschafts- und Genremaler Anton Radl war wohl zu Lebzeiten einer der angesehensten Künstler der Mainstadt. Nach 1889 verließ er seine Heimat und gelangte über Brüssel, Aachen und Köln nach Frankfurt am Main, wo er bis zu seinem Tode leben sollte. Zunächst ging er hier in die Lehre des bekannten Verlegers J.G. Prestel (1739-1808), für den er auch Vorlagen nach Werken alter Meister für dessen druckgraphische Reproduktionen lieferte. Andere Themen waren zeitgenössischen Inhalts, wie Genreszenen aus den Napoleon. Kriegen, oder Ansichten mittelalterlicher Burgruinen und Stadtbefestigungen. Nach 1800 konnte er sich beim heimischen Publikum mit seinen Landschaften der Umgebung einen Namen machen. Überdies nahm seine zunehmend vielfältige druckgraphische Produktion einen bedeutenden Platz in seinem Gesamtschaffen ein.

        The History Of The Rebellion And Civil Wars In England.

      Oxford: Clarendon Press,, 1819. To which is added, an Historical View of the Affairs in Ireland. 6 volumes, octavo (213 x 130 mm). Contemporary polished calf, spines gilt in compartments, twin red and maroon morocco labels, 3-line blind frames enclosing gilt supralibros of the Hulme bequest to covers, marbled edges. Cowper Hall book labels to front pastedowns, ownership inscription "E. N. Bownas, Aug. 21st 1947" to front pastedowns or free endpapers. A few very mild scuffs to covers, small chip to fore edge of vol. 2 rear board, light spotting to endleaves and very occasionally to text-leaves, mainly in the margins, newspaper clippings tipped to vol. 1 front pastedown relating to the sale of the contents of Carleton Hall in 1947, sheet of thick paper pasted over the free endpaper, these flaws minor: an excellent, bright set. A very pleasing library set of Clarendon's History, which was "the most sophisticated and finely balanced history yet written in English" (ODNB) when first published in Oxford in 1702-3, and remained a staple of all libraries for long after. This set was in the library of the Carleton-Cowper family at Carleton Hall, near Penrith, Cumbria: the house and its contents were auctioned off by Major G. T. M. Carleton Cowper in 1947, and the building is now occupied by the Cumbria Constabulary.

        Representación del Señor Rafael D. Mérida, al Congreso de Venezuela. Instalado en la ciudad de Santo Tomas de Angostura, el año de 1819, la que fué mandada archivar por resolucion de dicho congreso.

      En la Imprenta de Lawalle jóven, 1819. Rafael D. Mérida (1762-1828) began his career as a bureaucrat in Caracas, participated in the early patriot movement, served as minister of Justice under Bolívar in 1813-14, but turned against the Liberator in 1816. In his Representación, Mérida recapitulates Bolívar's errors, military and political, in a finely honed philippic. He is no less kind to Miranda, whom he nearly accuses of treason. Palau states that this piece was actually printed in the U.S., and the paper on which it is printed would certainly substantiate that claim, as does the fact that it is held by the Library Company of Philadelphia, famous for its collection of Spanish-language books printed in Philadelphia with false imprint information. An extremely rare piece of Bolívariana. => This copy belonged to one of Mérida's family.

        Manuscript map of "Property Situated on Norfolk Street belonging to Thos. Gardner, Esq." signed by Stephen Ludlam, City Surveyor, pen, ink and colors on paper

      New York 1819 - 1 vols. Image 23 x 12 inches, framed. Manuscript Map of a Block in Old New York, 1819. Mr. Gardner's block, on Manhatten's Lower East Side, is bounded by Norfolk, Stanton, Suffolk and Rivington Streets, and consists of 32 numbered parcels of surveyed land, 16 fronting on Norfolk Street and 16 on Suffolk Street, each 25 feet wide and 100 feet deep. Four Norfolk Street parcels are tinted, evidently to indicate leases, as pencilled on these are the names Lawrence, Pessenger, and Tappen (2 parcels). (There were several prominent Tappens in New York at this time, and doubtless some obscure ones; we have not been able to determine which Tappen this might have been). Off Suffolk Street, diagonally across from Gardner's block, the words "Delancy's Farm" have been inked in, another familiar New York name, surviving in today's Delancy Street. An historic and interesting glimpse of Old New York. 1 vols. Image 23 x 12 inches, framed

        Report of the Case of the Trustees of Dartmouth College. [1819].

      1819 - First Report of the Landmark Dartmouth College Case [Trial]. [Dartmouth College Case]. Farrar, Timothy [1788-1874], Reporter. Report of the Case of the Trustees of Dartmouth College Against William H. Woodward: Argued and Determined in the Superior Court of Judicature of the State of New-Hampshire, November 1817. And on Error in the Supreme Court of the United States, February 1819. Portsmouth [NH]: Published by John W. Forster and West, Richardson, And Lord, Boston, [1819]. [iv], 406 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5"). Recent period-style calf, blind fillets to boards, blind fillets and lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed. Moderate toning to text, somewhat darker around margins, very faint dampstaining in a few places, light foxing to a few leaves. Small early owner signature to head of title page, brief early annotations to margins in a few places, interior otherwise clean. Ex-library. Two tiny instamps to foot of p. [iii]. A handsome copy. * Farrar's is the first published report of the landmark case involving the contract rights of corporations. With all the material related to the case, including the arguments of Webster and Wirt and the opinions of Chief Justice Marshall and Justices Story and Washington, and an appendix containing the texts of related documents. The New Hampshire legislature passed a bill in 1816 that revoked Dartmouth College's original charter and converted the college from a private to a state institution. The college challenged the constitutionality of this act in the New Hampshire Supreme Court without success, but the U.S. Supreme Court reversed the state's decision in a landmark opinion based on the contract clause of the Constitution (Article I, Section 10). "By construing the contract clause as a means of protecting corporate charters from state interventions, Marshall derived a significant limitation on state authority. As a result, various forms of private economic and social activity would enjoy security from state regulatory policy. Marshall thus encouraged, through constitutional sanction, the emergence of the relatively unregulated private, autonomous economic actor as the major participant in a liberal political economy that served the commonwealth by promoting enlightened self interest": Alfred F. Konefsky, "Dartmouth College v. Woodward" in Hall, The Oxford Compa [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [Denshin Kaishu] HOKUSAI MANGA Ju^-hen

      1819. Fine. (HOKUSAI MANGA) Katsushika I-itsu [Denshin Kaishu] HOKUSAI MANGA Ju^- hen. Edo: Kadomaruya, Bunsei 2 [1819]. 22.7 x 16.0 cm. String-bound Japanese-style, fukuro-toji. Original covers with brushed title. Though Nagoya-based Eirakuya To^shiro^ editions of the MANGA are quite common, the Edo issues by Kadomaruya are quite unusual. In addition, this is, of course, an early issue of volume ten, a book usually seen in late Edo-era, early Meiji versions. Volume ten concluded the series in its first iteration. With an 8 page Kadomaruya advertisement bound in at the back. The printing is good, at first glance it seems light, even worn but examination under a lens reveals fine detail soon lost in later printings. A bit of internal and external soiling and rubbing, there is significant worming and some rubbing damage beyond mere thumbing, BUT, such early issues as this have utterly disappeared from the marketplace and are highly prized.

Gurney was the only son of Joseph John Gurney of Earlham Hall, Norwich, Norfolk. At the age of ten he was sent to a private tutor at Leytonstone near the Epping Forest, where he met Henry Doubleday, and commenced his first natural history collection. From there he moved to the Friends' School at Tottenham, and whilst there met William Yarrell. At the age of seventeen he joined the family's banking business in Norwich. Gurney published a number of articles in The Zoologist on the birds of Norfolk. He also commenced a collection of birds of prey. In 1864 he published Part I. of his Descriptive Catalogue of this collection, and in 1872 he edited The Birds of Damara Land from the notes of his friend Charles John Andersson. Between 1875 and 1882 he produced a series of notes in The Ibis on the first volume of the Catalogue of Birds in the British Museum, and in 1884 brought out a List of Diurnal Birds of Prey, with References and Annotations. The archives of Cambridge University Museum of Zoology contains five volumes of correspondence between Alfred Newton and Gurney, who was a founding member of the Norfolk Naturalists Trust. For the last twenty years of his life he resided at the family's home at Northrepps, near Cromer. His son, John Henry Gurney Jr., was also an ornithologist, and his great great grandson, Henry Richard Gurney of Heggatt Hall has continued the family tradition. The southern African race of the black-necked grebe, Podiceps nigricollis gurneyi, was named by South African zoologist and author Austin Roberts in 1919 in honour of the father and son. John Henry Gurney Jr.'s daughter Agatha Gurney (18811937) married Sir Edward Ruggles-Brise, 1st Baronet.

        The History Of The Rebellion And Civil Wars In England. To which is added, an Historical View of the Affairs in Ireland.

      Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1819 - 6 volumes, octavo (213 x 130 mm). Contemporary polished calf, spines gilt in compartments, twin red and maroon morocco labels, 3-line blind frames enclosing gilt supralibros of the Hulme bequest to covers, marbled edges. Cowper Hall book labels to front pastedowns, ownership inscription "E. N. Bownas, Aug. 21st 1947" to front pastedowns or free endpapers. A few very mild scuffs to covers, small chip to fore edge of vol. 2 rear board, light spotting to endleaves and very occasionally to text-leaves, mainly in the margins, newspaper clippings tipped to vol. 1 front pastedown relating to the sale of the contents of Carleton Hall in 1947, sheet of thick paper pasted over the free endpaper, these flaws minor: an excellent, bright set. A very pleasing library set of Clarendon's History, which was "the most sophisticated and finely balanced history yet written in English" (ODNB) when first published in Oxford in 1702-3, and remained a staple of all libraries for long after. This set was in the library of the Carleton-Cowper family at Carleton Hall, near Penrith, Cumbria: the house and its contents were auctioned off by Major G. T. M. Carleton Cowper in 1947, and the building is now occupied by the Cumbria Constabulary.

After two years, and much travel, he returned to his country. "Always strongly attached to his own people [Noah] desired to establish a colony for the oppression of all nations. Accordingly, in 1825, with imposing ceremonies, he laid the cornerstone of 'Ararat, a City of Refuge' which he hoped to establish on Grand Island in the Niagara River. Though the project came to naught, it affords an interesting commentary upon an otherwise practical mind." (D.A.B. Rosenbach 205).

        Traité de la Géométrie Descriptive - [ Suivi de : ] Planches.

      Planches de l'Atlas imprimées par Tardieu, 1 vol. in-4 relié , rel. d'époque demi-basane marron, Mme Vve Courcier, Paris, 1819, 1 f. blanc, XX-355 pp. (avec insertion de 2 ff. supplémentaires modifiés, correspondant aux pp. 203 à 206) et 8 pp. (catalogue) ; titre, 8 pp. et 60 planches hors texte (dont 3 pl. dépliantes) Edition originale. Exemplaire bien complet de l'atlas de 60 planches gravée par Tardieu ; surtout, le présent exemplaire propose deux états différents des ff. paginés 203-204 et 205-206 (les feuillets supplémentaires sont insérés à la fin des tables) : la modification concerne les paragraphes 508, 509 et 510, relatifs au problème des tangentes aux intersections de surface. Etat très satisfaisant (dos frotté avec 2 petits taches d'encre, petite fente à un mors, lég. rouss). Elève de Monge et de Hachette, Louis Léger (1784-1864) prit la suite de ses maîtres à Polytechnique dans le domaine de la géométrie descriptive. Comme le précise le Rapport introductif de l'Institut de France, cosigné par Prony, Fourier et Arago, "l'expérience avait conduit de bonne heure aux procédés d'après lesquels les architectes, les tailleurs de pierre et les charpentiers construisent leurs épures ; mais ces méthodes n'ont été réunies en corps de doctrine et débassées de tout empirisme, que de nos jours. C'est à M. Monge qu'on en est redevable". Les Leçons de Géométrie descriptive de Monge étaient néanmoins insatisfaisantes pour les artistes peu familier des méthodes Mathématiques, et le présent ouvrage s'emploie à remédier à ce défaut, notamment par l'usage de planches parfaitement dessinées offrant "dans les plus petits détails, toutes les constructions qu'il faut exécuter pour arriver à la solution finale".

        [Denshin Kaishu] HOKUSAI MANGA Rop-pen

      1819. Fine. (HOKUSAI MANGA) Katsushika I-itsu [Denshin Kaishu] HOKUSAI MANGA Roppen. Edo: Kadomaruya, Bunsei 2 [1819]. 22.7 x 15.9 cm. String-bound Japanese-style, fukuro-toji. Original covers with brushed title. Though Nagoya-based Eirakuya Toshiro editions of the MANGA are quite common, the Edo issues by Kadomaruya are quite unusual. In addition, this is, of course, an early issue of volume six, a book usually seen in late Edo-era, early Meiji versions. With an 8 page Kadomaruya advertisement bound in at the back. The printing is good, at first glance it seems light, even worn but examination under a lens reveals fine detail soon lost in later printings. A bit of internal and external soiling and rubbing, but, such early issues as this have utterly disappeared from the marketplace and are highly prized.

Toutefois, les monts Croker, que crû apercevoir Ross, furent l'objet d'une controverse qui l'opposa à Barrow, Sabine et Parry dans un débat acrimonieux. ¶ Sabin 23923.
