ØRSTED [OERSTED], HANS CHRISTIAN
Crochard, Paris, 1820. ONE OF THE FIRST TRANSLATIONS OF ØRSTED'S FAMOUS AND UNOBTAINABLE LATIN PAMPHLET ON THE DISCOVERY OF ELECTROMAGNETISM, PUBLISHED IN THE FOLLOWING MONTH IN FRANCE, AND IMPORTANT FOR ITS CONNECTION TO AMPÈRE'S EXTENSIONS OF ØRSTED'S RESEARCH ON ELECTROMAGNETIC PHENOMENA. A MAGNIFICENT COPY IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS. In July of 1820 the Danish scientist Hans Christian Ørsted announced his discovery that a magnetized needle could be deflected by an electric current. The discovery created a sensation among European savants, and shortly thereafter Ampère extended Ørsted's work by showing, among other things, that parallel current-carrying wires repelled or attracted one another, depending upon the whether the two currents were in the same or opposite directions. A little over a decade later, Faraday showed that moving magnets could induce an electrical current in nearby conducting wires, and by 1865 Maxwell had developed a complete quantitative theory of the relationship between electricity and magnetism. It was Ørsted's discovery that provided the first hint of such a relationship - a relationship that both stimulated the development of Einstein's special theory of relativity and is now understood as a necessary consequence of that theory. As Nobel Prize winner Edward M. Purcell observed, "Whether the ideas of special relativity could have evolved in the absence of a complete theory of the electromagnetic field is a question for the historian of scientist to speculate about; probably it can't be answered. We can only say that the actual history shows rather pla … [Click Below for Full Description]

The moveable regulator (here in silver plate) with punched holes was placed over Martin's printed tables to give an immediate conversion. First published in 1809, the work was immediately popular and was frequently reprinted and expanded. The first edition contained 487 pages, an 1817 edition was expanded to nearly twice the size, with many new tables, and contained 843 pages. The 1820 edition, called 'deuxième' (but actually troisième) is expanded to 900 pages. The title-page verso bears the author's signature as a guarantee against counterfeit copies. .

Giovanni Battista Belzoni was one of the most colourful figures of the early nineteenth century. Born at Padua in 1778, in his youth he considered a monastic career, but with Napoleon's conquering army entering Rome in 1798 and forcing Pope Pius VI into exile, this was not an opportune period to join the church. Belzoni turned his attention instead to the study of hydraulics. Struck by wanderlust and keen to avoid military conscription, he moved first to the Netherlands and then to England, Spain, Portugal and Malta, hoping to fi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Complete in two volumes. 'Winter Evening Tales' is a collection of short stories, all of which are set in the south of Scotland. They are rural and traditional tales, as intended by the author to be the kind of stories that would be told in a cottage sitting around the fire during a dark evening in the Scottish winter. The stories in this work include 'The Renowned Adventures of Basil Lee', 'A Peasant's Funeral', 'Story of Two Highlanders', 'The Bridal of Polmood', 'The Shepherd's Calendar', and more. This work was well received when it was published. James Hogg was a Scottish writer, who worked as a shepherd and farmhand in this youth, being mostly self-taught through reading. Whilst he became a successful writer, he continued working as a farmer. He was also a good friend of Walter Scott, and wrote an unauthorised biography on his fellow Scottish poet.

Bound in full red morocco, raised bands, ornate gilt tooling within compartments, gilt and blind stamped dentelles, full gilt edges, coloured endpapers. Calf light rubbed, some light minor wear, a few hinge joints very slightly cracked. All bindings in very good clean condition. Gilt tooling and dentells on volumes 2 & 8 are very slightly different.

BEOWULF - N.F.S. GRUNDTVIG (TRANSL.). - [SECOND APPEARANCE IN PRINT OF "BEOWULF"]
Kjøbenhavn, Andreas Seidelin, 1820. 8vo. Nice contemporary half calf with double gilt line decoration and gilt title to spine. A bit of brownspotting to title-page, but a good and sturdy copy. Printed on good paper and with good margins. A stamp (Grundtvigs Høiskole) to title-page and "Grundtvigs Højskole" and "Nr. 1" in 19th century handwriting to inside of front board. LXXIV, 325 pp. ¶ The highly important first translation into any modern language - and overall the second edition to appear - of the seminal Gothic tale that is Beowulf. This monumental work appeared merely five years after the first printing of the text (in Latin, 1815) and 13 years before the first English edition of Beowulf. With this edition, Grundtvig founded the study of Beowulf. "In the British Library there is a manuscript, its edges scorched and brittle, of "Beowulf", one of the very earliest poems in English and its first great literary masterpiece. It exists only in this one vellum codex and has survived for a thousand years, telling of an even earlier time, when the heroic age still was remembered by a Christian audience....In 1786, an Icelandic scholar, came to the [British] Museum, looking for documents relating to Denmark, where the first part of "Beowulf" takes place. He made two complete copies of the manuscript, the first time this had been done, one by a professional copyist and the other, himself, and returned to Copenhagen to study them.But then calamity. Denmark was occupied during the Napoleonic Wars and, in 1807, the English bombarded Copenhagen... [The] manuscript for an edition of … [Click Below for Full Description]

Liberotti, Giovanni
Rome: Incisore di Camei Roma, ca 1820. Hardcover. 33 x 21 cm. 102 miniature plaster medallions in relief (white gesso) within gilt decorated borders. A souvenir of the Grand Tour, depicting famous sculptures and works of art in relief as miniature plaster casts, from classical sculpture to Canova. The master carver, Giovanni Liberotti, a nineteenth-century Roman gem engraver who specialized in making these souvenirs. Liberotti had been initially commissioned to make these impressions based on gems in the collection of Giovanni Battista Sommariva (1760-1826), a noted art patron and collector extraordinaire. Later Liberotti and other competitors would market the boxed sets in Rome to eager tourists. Nothing is more impressive than the original engraver's ability here to capture the very essence and detail of the larger masterpieces in such miniature intaglios. It is not surprising that Goethe himself "owned many thousands of casts [and] told his correspondents years later that no greater treasure could be brought back from Rome." Manuscript identification of the 102 plaster medallions at inside front cover. Box with moderate wear. Orig. leather backed clam shell box, and decorated, marbled wood boards with functioning clasps at fore-edge. Very good. Item #21310.

Scarpa, Antonio, Anatom (1752-1832).
An einen Freund. Scarpa kündigt an, eine Kupfertafel zu senden, die zur Illustration eines seiner Werke bestimmt ist, nämlich in "Sul taglio ipogastrico per l'estrazione della pietra nella vescica ordinaria" (Mailand 1820): "[...] Per verità il [Giovita] Garavaglia [1790-1835] me lo ha fatto desiderare, ma il rimodo è compensato da una non ordinaria accurezza nell'esprimere con linee e pochissime tinte l'originale in modo che a me sembra di averlo tuttora sott'occhio. Non dubito punto che li Sig[no]ri Editori della Bibliotheca Italiana vorranno compiacersi di farlo stampare con accurezza ; perciocchè assai volte ho veduto, che quando trattasi di incisioni lineari la stampa ne viene per lo più oltre modo trascurata. Starò in attenzione delle copie di quella mia lettera, che li Sig[no]ri Editori vorranno accordarmi [...]" - Schöner BRief über die Sorgfalt, mit der Scarpa seine Veröffentlichungen begleitete. - Scarpa war seit 1784 Professor für Anatomie in Pavia , wo er auch eine chirurgische Klinik betrieb. Seine Hauptverdienste liegen in der Entwicklung der chirurgischen Anatomie. Er machte sich verdient um die Anatomie des Ohres, entdeckte u. a. den Nervus naso-palatinus und beschrieb das Scarpasche Dreieck am Oberschenkel. Überdies war er Leibchirurg Naopleons. - Ungedruckt. - Sehr selten.

Bien que cette édition soit postérieure de plusieurs décennies aux premières éditions de 1782, elle est fort bien imprimée et illustrée de 6 charmantes gravures sur acier d'après Devéria. "Bible du libertinage pour certains, le livre s'impose surtout comme chef-d'œuvre du roman d'analyse, comme un des romans les plus abstraits et les plus intelligents. Aussi l'audace des Liaisons Dangereuses ne consiste-t-elle ni dans la débauche facile au langage cru, ni dans la perversité au premier degré ou la jouissance de faire le mal propre à Sade, mais dans l'art de dire ou plutôt de l'écrire pour un connaisseur admiratif et un peu vexé, placé en position de voyeur comme le lecteur" (Laurent Versini, BnF, En français dans le texte , n° 174).

HEATHCOTE, Reverend Charles John
Middlesex, England, 1820. Unbound. Near Fine. A manuscript account handwritten and signed by Reverend Charles John Heathcote after visiting a young dying woman, Hannah More, three days before her death, circa the 1820s in Middlesex, England. Approx. 400 words and is near fine with some light foxing, tiny tears, and creasing with all words intact. The account begins with a short description, "Departed this life on the 10th inst., Hannah L., daughter of Ezekiel Moore, in the 16th of her age. On wensday (sic) preceding her death, the writer of these lines was called upon to visit her and it proved to him both a profitable and pleasing visit". After this the letter is primarily focused on the More's condition and her acceptance of death, "I found her in a state of uncommon resignation to the will of God, patiently waiting the hour of her departure... I want the the (sic) will of the lord to be done whether I live or die". Heathcote writes that More asked him to preach at her funeral and for two hymns to be recited, "Come humble sinner in whose breast, a thousand thoughts resolve," and, "When thou my righteous Jude shall come". Heathcote documents More's interactions with her family and friends before commending her on her devoutness to God. He writes finally that he is happy to have gotten to see her and finishes with, "Let me die the death of the righteous that my latter end may be like his". Reverend Charles John Heathcote was born in Middlesex, England in 1796 and followed in his father's footsteps by becoming a reverend. He wrote one book of sermons and hymns, *Last Serm … [Click Below for Full Description]
