KOSTER, J[ohn] T[heodore]
Liverpool: printed by G.F. Harris's widow and brothers. 1819. 8vo., double-page engraved folding plate with 9 figures, 41 + (1)pp., with an author's advertisement slip tipped in before the text and with an errata leaf tipped in at the end, well bound in modern half calf, spine lettered in gilt. A fine copy. First, and apparently only, edition. The author seems to have been a Liverpool businessman who also published essays on gold bullion and banknotes. He describes himself as 'an obscure individual, neither a mechanic by profession, nor immediately connected with any of the various branches of agriculture, commerce, or communication wherein these vehicles [i.e. wheel carriages] are employed.' The essay is in fact a detailed specification, with engraved drawings, of Koster's patented designs for his 'New or Improved Method' which essentially involved shifting the weight of the body of the vehicle from between the wheels to the extremities of the axle-tree outside the wheels. In his advertisement slip, Koster announced that he was 'willing to treat with coach-makers, wheelwrights, builders of carts, waggons, &c. for the patent-right of constructing carriages according to his plan, in any particular county or district; or he will grant licences for building one or more carriages, to noblemen, gentlemen, farmers, coach-proprietors, carriers, &c. on very moderate terms, at his house in Liverpool, or by letters'.

Slightly worn and soiled. First Edition. Rare. "In 1819 Lindpaintner took up the post of Kapellmeister at Stuttgart, where he remained for the rest of his life. Here he established his reputation as one of the finest German conductors and continued to compose assiduously for the stage. A number of his operas were enthusiastically received... [He] also enjoyed a reputation as a composer of lieder, sacred music and instrumental works. His songs, particularly Die Fahenwacht and Roland, were widely popular; among his sacred music, which included cantatas, masses and psalms, the oratorio Der Jüngling von Nain held a high place. His concertos and concertinos were notably successful, especially the two concertante symphonies for five wind instruments and orchestra. Lindpaintner's mastery of instrumentation was widely acknowledged, and his reorchestration of Handel's Judas Maccabeus was seen as one of his finest works." Clive Brown in Grove Music Online.

The book is in good condition (no foxing, no tears). 33,5 x 27 cm, [6] [x] 1-869 pp. The book contains 81 full-page engravings and many small illustrations and vignettes by Gustave Doré. The Dutch poet and minister J.J.L. ten Kate (1819-1889) was gifted in translating foreign lyrics into clear, fluent and beautiful Dutch verse. Other popular works translated by Ten Kate are Dante's Inferno (de hel) and Milton's Paradise Lost (het verloren paradijs). The plates by Gustave Doré (1832-1883) give a beautiful example of his background in romantic art. The overwhelming landscapes he depicted are alternated by witty animal figures in dark forests.

The engraving is on woven, J. Whatman watermarked paper. --- Selby was a prominent naturalist that received drawing lessons from John James Audubon and was friends witht he likes of John Gould, Sir William Jardine, William Yarrell, and H. E. Strickland. He is often referred to as the British Audubon. He rendered all of the engravings with birds in their true to life size. --- Christine Jackson of Sotheby's noted besides "collecting and preserving birds, Selby had observed them in the field, making careful notes of their habitat and habits. At his leisure, he also sensitively colored drawings of them. With this accumulation of practical knowledge, specimens, and some drawings, Selby embarked in 1819 on an ambitious project to publish the most up-to-date, life-size illustrations of British birds." --- "Selby etched his drawings on copper plates and then either took or sent the plates to William Home Lizars in Edinburgh. Either Lizars or one of his workmen took a pull [proof impression] from Selby's plate and worked on any parts necessary to bring the plate to a very fine state of completion. Selby and Sir William Jardine both purchased their copper plates and etching ground from Pontifex of London, and their letters refer to the progress made in drawing and 'biting' or etching their plates. If they made a mistake or accidently over-etched a plate, they relied on Lizars to correct by burnishi … [Klicken Sie unten für eine ausführliche Beschreibung]

John Baron
Longman, Hurst, Rees, Constable and Co Edinburgh 1819 - A 200 year old medical classic on tuberculous effusions of the peritoneum and pleura by John Baron. First modern attempt towards the cause on the subject. 5 plates with wood cut engravings 305 pages in a leather bound volume. Longman, Hurst, Rees, Constable and Co Edinburgh John Baron came to know Jenner about 1809, and was designated as Jenner's biographer by the executors. Copious biographical materials were put into his hands soon after Jenner's death in 1823; but the ‘Life of Edward Jenner, M.D., LL.D., F.R.S., with Illustrations of his Doctrine and Selections from his Correspondence,’ in two vols. with two portraits, was not completed until 1838. The book includes a history of the vaccination movement. Baron's attitude to Jenner was that of the unquestioning disciple. In 1839 he prepared a report on vaccination for the Provincial Medical and Surgical Association, ahead of legislation; it was attacked for uncritical acceptance of Jenner's view of the permanence of protection given by vaccinations. Baron's use of statistical evidence was also questioned, by George Gregory. Baron also published three books on tubercles: ‘Enquiry illustrating the Nature of Tuberculated Accretions of Serous Membranes,’ &c., plates, London, 1819; ‘Illustrations of the Enquiry respecting Tuberculous Diseases,’ plates, London, 1822; and ‘Delineations of the Changes of Structure which occur in Man and some of the Inferior Animals,’ plates, London, 1828. His services to pathology gained Baron admissio … [Klicken Sie unten für eine ausführliche Beschreibung]

POLIDORI, John William.
London: Printed for Sherwood, Neely, and Jones 1819 - 8vo., pp. xxv, [26]-84; complete with the half-title; the occasional mark, but a very good copy, entirely uncut; disbound.First edition: the first published vampire story in the English language, written by Byron's doctor in reaction to the dominating presence of his employer. It was a product of the same ghost-story competition which resulted in Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, at the Villa Diodati on Lake Geneva in the summer of 1816. 'The historical and mythological importance of Polidori's The Vampyre lies in its drastic correction of the folklore's shortcomings, and especially in his elevation of the nosferatu (undead) to the dignity of high social rank. By removing the bloodsucker from the village cowshed to the salons of high society and the resorts of international tourism, he set in motion the glorious career of the aristocratic vampire, a figure later incarnated in J. M. Rymer's interminable Varney the Vampire (1847), and of course as Count Dracula in Bram Stoker's Dracula (1872)' (Robert Morrison).This is Viets's issue IV, published by Sherwood, Neely and Jones, without the spurious attribution to Byron on the title and half-title, and with gathering A reset in 23 lines rather than 24.Henry R.
