Peter Force
Washington, D.C: Davis and Force, 1820. See item description. Eleven volumes from Peter Force's annually published 14-volume series, THE NATIONAL CALENDAR. The complete 14-volume series spans the years, 1820 through 1836, and the 11 volumes offered here do not include the CALENDAR for the years 1820, 1830, and 1835.

Almost all of the leather that once covered the spine is gone and both boards are missing, as are the front and rear blank flyleaves. The frontispiece engraving of the "West Front of the Capitol" is present, but detached, soiled, and torn around the edges. At one time this frontispiece might have included a portion of the engraving that folded out, but I've seen four othe … [Click Below for Full Description]

MALTHUS, Thomas Robert.
London: John Murray,, 1820. Against Ricardo Octavo (218 x 137 mm). Rebound to style in half calf, retaining 19th-century marbled boards, endpapers, and edges, smooth spine gilt in compartments and with red morocco label. A few trivial spots, a very good copy. First edition. The book was conceived as a series of tracts rather than a comprehensive and systematic treatise, though Malthus published it to establish his own position against that of Ricardo, with whom he had been having an ongoing debate about the nature of labour, demand and profit. "In his 'Principles of Political Economy', Malthus was proposing investment in public work and private luxury as a means of increasing effective demand, and hence as a palliative to economic distress. The nation, he thought, must balance the power to produce and the will to consume" (DSB). "The Principles had only a limited impact at the time, and was severely criticized by J. R. McCulloch and Ricardo; the latter prepared extensive critical notes. But more recently it has received greater recognition, largely as a result of the comments by J. M. Keynes in the 1930s. Keynes argued that Malthus's theory of effective demand provided a scientific explanation of unemployment, and that the hundred-year domination of Ricardo over Malthus had been a disaster for the progress of economics. Keynes believed that if economics had followed Malthus instead of being constrained by Ricardo in an artificial groove, the world would be a much wiser and richer place" (ODNB).

Very scarce in original boards. Housed in a custom quarter black morocco clamshell, gilt-stamped.First edition of Malthus' principal contribution to economic theory. Schumpeter describes Malthus' work in relation to that of his predecessors, Adam Smith and Ricardo, as follows: "Ricardo's work...started with the Wealth of Nations and recoined the latter's theoretical contents by a method that centered in the concept of value. Exactly the same thing is evidently true of the work of Malthus...except for his theory of saving and investment, which on the face of it seems to be Malthus's own, all the elements that enter into the analytic apparatus of that work, and even its terminological arrangements, point to the First book of the Wealth of Nations. Only, whereas Ricardo recoined the doctrine of Wealth by means of the labor-quantity theory of value, Malthus recoined it by the means of the theory of value that A. Smith actually used, namely, the theory of supply and demand...[whereas] Ricardo's analytic apparatus i … [Click Below for Full Description]

Engraved portrait frontispiece of Poussin, and a folding lithographic plate of Poussin's house on the Trinita dei Monti. First and only contemporary edition. Uncommon work by the well-known travel writer, "which has been described as 'both a scholarly and a pioneering work' (Lloyd and Brown, Callcott, The Journal of Maria Lady Callcott, (1981), p. 2). It was the first monograph in English on this artist. Although the content draws heavily on Lanzi's earlier life and the art criticism is highly dependent on Reynolds's Discourses and Henry Fuseli's Lectures, it is nevertheless a comprehensive consideration of his work, which carefully identifies the geographical locations, patrons, originals, and copies of his paintings" (ODNB). Graham had spent the previous year in and around Rome in the company of the artist Charles Eastlake, who she and her husband had encountered on the voyage out, and who there introduced her to John Jackson, who made the copy of Poussin's self-portrait on which the frontispiece is based … [Click Below for Full Description]

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.

Haydn, pleading illness, sent instead a copy of the sonata for piano with violin and 'cello accompaniment (HXV:31) minus the somewhat superfluous 'cello part. In an accompanying letter to Madame Moreau, Haydn apologizes for not composing something new, due to his failing health, and promises to fulfill his duties once he regains his strength.This two-movement work, in the unusual key of E flat minor, was originally composed for piano, violin, and 'cello. Haydn wrote it soon after his return to Vienna from London in 1795, and in 1805 it was published for three instruments by several publishing houses. The autograph manuscript is in the Zweig Collection at the British Library. Dated 1795, Haydn wrote at the top of the second movement: "Jacobs Dream by Dr. Haydn 794," which indicates that the second movement w … [Click Below for Full Description]

Some writing inside the front cover of all three volume, the most is seen in volume one. Very little foxing with the exception of the illustration page in volume one. Some spots on a few pages, otherwise very clean. IVANHOE IVANHOE Click image to enlarge Description IVANHOE By Sir Walter Scott ~ 3 Volume 1820 First Edition ~ Ivanhoe: A Romance is a historical novel by Sir Walter Scott, though dated 1820 it was first published in late 1819 in three volumes. At the time it was written it represented a shift by Scott away from fairly realistic novels set in Scotland in the comparatively recent past, to a somewhat fanciful depiction of medieval England. It has proved to be one of the best known and most influential of Scott's novels. Ivanhoe is set in 12th-century England with colourful descriptions of a tournament, outlaws, a witch trial and divisions between Jews and Christians. It has been credited for increasing interest in romance and medievalism; John Henry Newman claimed Scott "had first turned men's minds in the direction of the Middle Ages", while Thomas Carlyle and John Ruskin made similar assertions of Scott's overwhelming influence over the revival, based primarily on the publication of this novel. It has also had an important influence on popular perceptions of Richard the Lionheart, King John and Robin Hood.

He was important as a diplomat in the years following the defeat of Napoleon at the Battle of Leipzig in 1814 and then after Waterloo in June 1815."Colin Macaulay 1760 - 1836Soldier and abolitionist. Born on the island of Lismore (Argyll & Bute), the son of the parish minister, Macaulay joined the army of the East India Company and eventually rose to become a Lieutenant-General in the Indian Army.

KRUSENSTERN - DANISH MANUSCRIPT TRANSLATION - [DANISH MANUSCRIPT TRANSLATION OF KRUSENSTERN'S "STRAIT OF SUNDA", INCLUDING THE MAP]
København, 1820 (Original work published St. Pétersburg, 1813) 4to (190 x 258 mm). In later half cloth. Gilt lettering and stamp to front board. Two stamps to title-page. Manuscript in brown ink by Danish Rear Admiral Lövenørn. Fine and clean with text in very good and legible condition. (6), 32 pp. + coloured manuscript map of Strait of Sunda. Copy of Krusensterns 1813-map. (590 x 460 mm) Danish Manuscript translation of Krusenstern's commentary to his of map of the Strait of Sunda and Batavia habour from 1813. We have been able to locate only one other copy of this work (also a Danish translation, from 1815, but lacking the map), manuscript and printed, in Danish, Swedish or Norwegian. Despite the fact that the Strait of Sunda was sailed relatively frequently by European sailors, Krusenstern's 1813-memoir is one of the earliest reliable pilots to this strait. From the present memoire: "Although a strait so important as that of Sunda, frequented every year by more than 50 European ships, ought to be (as one would naturally suppose) perfectly well known; notwithstanding which, after having examined the charts of these coasts reputed the best, I venture to say that I have been convinced that there does not exit one with which one can be entirely satisfied". Rear admiral Lövenørn became the first director of Royal Danish Nautical Charts Archive in 1784. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

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.

Peter Force
Washington, D.C: Davis and Force, 1820. See item description. Eleven volumes from Peter Force's annually published 14-volume series, THE NATIONAL CALENDAR. The complete 14-volume series spans the years, 1820 through 1836, and the 11 volumes offered here do not include the CALENDAR for the years 1820, 1830, and 1835. Force did not publish any volumes for 1825, 1826, and 1826. These rare books are in varying degrees of wear and individually are described below. If you want to view the Table of Contents for any particular volume, please let me know via eBay's communication system. EBay allows for five photographs to be attached per e-mail and the length of some of the Tables of Contents will require me to send photographs via two e-mails. Some books are missing a page or so and I will supply whatever is missing via xerox copies from the volumes in my own library. The following 11 volumes are offered for sale here: (1) Boardless THE NATIONAL CALENDAR, FOR MDCCCXXI, by Peter Force (published 1821 in Washington City, by Davis and Force, "Printers, Booksellers, and Stationers"; 268 pages). The book is in poor to fair condition and the book is being sold as a "working copy" that the purchaser might wish to rebind. Almost all of the leather that once covered the spine is gone and both boards are missing, as are the front and rear blank flyleaves. The frontispiece engraving of the "West Front of the Capitol" is present, but detached, soiled, and torn around the edges.

NODIER Charles
Barba, 1820. NODIER Charles . Le Vampire , Mélodrame en trois actes, avec un prologue. Représenté pour la première fois le 13 juin 1820. Paris, Barba, 1820. Un volume in-8 broché. 56 pp. (hauteur des feuillets : 213mm). Cette pièce fait partie des tout premiers écrits qui jalonnent les débuts de la mode du vampire dans la littérature française, lancée un an auparavant par les deux traductions du Vampire de Polidori. Nodier, qui s'était violemment opposé en février à l'éditeur Ladvocat qui, pour des raisons commerciales, lui avait attribué la paternité de Lord Ruthwen, écrivit peu de temps après cette pièce, en collaboration avec Carmouche et le marquis de Jouffroy. Il se fit expulser en 1823 d'un théatre, alors qu'il perturbait une représentation de la pièce. Petites déchirures au dos mais bel exemplaire. Ne pas hésiter à demander d'autres photos (le site n'en permet que cinq). [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
