        Autograph letter signed "Meyerbeer" to unidentified correspondent [?Julius Stern]

      Apparently unpublished. Not in Becker, Heinz, Gudrun Becker, and Sabine Henze-Döhring, eds.: Giacomo Meyerbeer: Briefwechsel und Tagebücher. The unusual greeting "Geehrter Herr und Landsmann" and the content of the letter suggest that Meyerbeer's correspondent is, in all likelihood, Julius Stern (1820-83), who in 1850 founded the Stern'sches Konservatorium in Berlin. With a grant from the king of Prussia, Stern spent the academic year 1843-44 as a voice student in Paris, where Meyerbeer protected him and introduced him to Berlioz. Meyerbeer uses the same greeting in a (likewise undated) letter to Stern that Stern's son and biographer Richard Stern published in his memoirs of his father: "Stern became closely acquainted with Hector Berlioz as well. Meyerbeer sent him a ticket for a concert by Berlioz and personally accompanied him there [as confirmed in the present letter]. Meyerbeer had the first box and left the best seat to Stern... Soon after, Stern sent some of his compositions to Berlioz, who had asked for them... Not much later, Meyerbeer wrote to Stern: 'Geehrter Herr und Landsmann! You may see your wish of a closer acquaintance with Berlioz fulfilled today if you please join me for lunch at the Hôtel du Paris...' " Richard Stern, Erinnerungsblätter an Julius Stern, p. 50. If Stern is, indeed, Meyerbeer's correspondent, the present letter may be safely dated to 1843-44.. 1 page. Small folio (122 x 210 mm.), cut from a larger leaf). [?Paris], "Sunday morning," [?1843-44]. In black ink on personal letterhead with embossed monogram at head. In German (with translation). Meyerbeer invites his unidentified correspondent, addressed "Geehrter Herr und Landsmann" (Esteemed Sir and Countryman), to a concert by Hector Berlioz: "Herr Berlioz has been so kind to send me two tickets for his concert tonight. If you agree to share his gift with me, I will be even happier because I will also have the pleasure of being your neighbor. After the concert I want to introduce you to Berlioz if you have not already met him." Slightly worn; creased at folds and overall; several very small ink stains; left margin with small chip, trimmed with partial loss to monogram; "Meyerbeer" in another hand to blank verso.

        COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS. BY HIS EXCELLENCY GOVERNOR JOHN BROOKS, GOVERNOR OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS. A PROCLAMATION. WHEREAS BY AN ACT OF THE LEGISLATURE OF THIS COMMONWEALTH, PASSED ON THE SIXTEENTH DAY OF JUNE LAST, ENTITLED "AN ACT RELATING TO THE CALLING OF A CONVENTION"...[caption title]

      Boston, 1820. Old folds. Short closed tear in left margin along one fold, not affecting text. Docketed on verso in contemporary manuscript; contemporary autograph inscription in lower margin: "Copy attest Alden Bradford Sec[retary] of the Common[wealth]." Very good. Broadside proclamation announcing the results of a statewide vote to decide whether or not to call for delegates to change the state constitution. This was the second state constitutional convention, after the first of 1780, which resulted in nine amendments to the foundational document. Maine had been granted statehood in March 1820, a few months prior, separating it from Massachusetts. Having voted in town meetings across the state, the people of Massachusetts voted 11,756 to 6,593 in favor of amending the constitution. The governor therefore called upon all qualified citizens to assemble "on the third Monday of October next...[to] elect one or more Delegates...to meet Delegates from other Towns, in Convention at the State House, in Boston, on the third Wednesday of November next, to take into consideration the propriety and expediency of making any (and if any what) alterations or amendments in the present Constitution of Government of the Commonwealth...."

      Cassel: Hampe; später Verlag von Friedrich Perthes und Verlag von Theodor Fischer 1820-1853. - Bände 6, 8 und 9 mit mehrfach gefalteten Stammtafeln. Christoph Rommel (1781-1859) war ein deutscher Historiker und Philologe. "Bleibende Bedeutung besitzt seine „Geschichte von Hessen" (10 Bände, 1820–1858) von der germanischen Zeit bis zu den Anfängen Landgraf Karls I. In der Tradition der spätaufklärerischen Landesgeschichtsschreibung legte Rommel ein Grundlagenwerk gemäß den methodischen und theoretischen Grundsätzen des Historismus vor. Die hessische Nation galt ihm unter der gottgegebenen Herrschaft des Hausos Brabant als geschichtswirksame und raumbildende Macht. Die Regierungszeit Philipps I. interpretierte er als Kulminationspunkt der politischen und konfessionellen Existenz des hessischen Staates und Volkes, das den "Kreislauf seiner Geschichte" erst zu erfüllen habe, bevor es in der deutschen Nation aufgehen könne. Unter dem Eindruck der Französischen Revolution und der Verfassung des Königreichs Westphalen, dessen Reformanstrengungen er zwar partiell als zeitgemäß ansah, aber trotzdem als nicht "geschichtlich begründet" verwarf, wandelte sich Rommel vom Vertreter einer 'gemäßigten' Aufklärung nach 1815 zum unbedingten Verfechter einer neoabsolutistischen Fürstenherrschaft. Dieser stellte er sein Werk kompromißlos zur Verfügung." (ADB 29, S. 126-128) - Einbände leicht berieben. Ecken und Kanten etwas bestoßen. Buntpapierbezug an den Außengelenken angeplatzt, teils mit Fehlstellen. Schnitte leicht fleckig und etwas angestaubt.

      "Gedrucht fur den Verfasser" [printed by Carl Augustus Bruckman], Reading, PA 1820 - (6 7/8 x 4 1/8 inches). 100pp. (Browning, minor loss to lower corners of B1 and B2). Contemporary half sheep and hand-coloured patterned paper covered boards (minor loss to paper of upper cover) A legendary work of Pennsylvania German folk magic and remedies, in its exceedingly rare first edition. This work (probably based on earlier works of folk magic in the European tradition such as the various works attributed to Albertus Magnus), was reprinted many times and became closely associated with the Pennsylvania Dutch magic tradition known as Braucherei. Often referred to as the "pow- wow book" in translation (indeed, still in print today), it is a work of broad appeal, as so many of the spells, recipes and remedies are universally applicable to rural concerns, especially those pertaining to both human and animal health. The supposedly occult powers of the book figure in works of fiction as well. Unsurprisingly, this first edition is rare, for all editions saw heavy use.

        Poems descriptive of Rural Life and Scenery.

      London: printed for Taylor and Hessay; and E. Drury,, 1820. Duodecimo (178 × 105 mm). Original boards, title label to spine, edges untrimmed. With the half-title and errata slip, with the glossary and 10 pp. publisher's advertisements bound at the rear. Ownership blind-stamp "Diana Lenygon" to front free endpaper. Rebacked, boards worn and the corners and stained, some spots and marks internally but still on the whole a very good copy. First edition of John Clare's first book, first issue with the errata slip, one of 1,000 copies published 15 January 1820, this copy in the original boards. John Clare (1793-1864) was a farm labourer's son, and gained his first significant taste in poetry from reading James Thompson's The Seasons. In order to forestall his parents' eviction from their home, he offered his own poems to a local bookseller Edward Drury, cousin to John Taylor of the publishers Taylor & Hessay (who had published Keats's poems). The resulting volume, Poems Descriptive of Rural Life and Scenery, was something of a publishing sensation, the 1,000 copies of the first edition selling out in two months. Clare was celebrated as being tantamount to an English Robert Burns, and his poetic talents, seemingly springing from nowhere, caught the attention of a reading public fascinated by the idea of "inspiration" and its sources in Nature. As well as being, in the words of his biographer Jonathan Bate, "the greatest labouring-class poet that England has ever produced", Clare is now considered an important proto-environmentalist voice; his poetry is particularly valuable for having expressed, in an authentic vernacular tongue (the publishers appended a 4 page glossary to explain Clare's rustic vocabulary), an elegiac celebration of wild rural England before it was wiped out by the Enclosure Acts. This copy has an appropriately rural contemporary pencil ownership inscription to the rear advertisement leaf, of Edward Thompson, a farmer of Greatford, Lincolnshire, whose servant is recorded in the 1840 Farmer's Magazine as winning a prize for ploughing.

Einzige Ausgabe. - "Weber began with research in anatomy and discovered several important structures, some of which still bear his name - for instance, Weber's ossicles, which form a chain of small bones on each side of the air bladder, and the ear atrium of some fishes (the Weberian apparatus). This work marked the beginning of a series of comparative embryological and paleontological studies that led to the discovery of the intermediary stages between the primitive structures of the splanchno-cranium and the middle ear auditory ossicles of mammals - a brilliant step in demonstrating the links between isolated facts and continuity in the evolution of structure and function" (DSB). - Stempel auf Titel.

        [Jones, Ebenezer- Two Manuscript poems] "Despair" and "Song"

      Two large sides of one sheet, two poems, nine total stanzas, about 80 lines, some edits including a few lines totally crossed out. Ebenezer Jones (1820-1860) was a poet and close friend of Dante Gabriel Rossetti and of the broader Rossetti family. His poetry saw little acclaim during his life, however, after Gabriel wrote in "Notes and Queries" that he [Jones] would some day be disinterred (William Bell Scott also agreeing), his popularity began to grow, with not a few of his poems brought into publication. Two poems are here written out in holograph by Jones, entitled: "Despair" and "Song." The latter appears in 'The Oxford Book of Verse' (Quiller-Couch, 1919) beginning: "WHEN the world is burning, Fired within, yet turning/ Round with face unscathed; /Ere fierce flames, uprushing,/ O'er all lands leap, crushing. /Till earth fall, fire-swathed,/ Up amidst the meadows,/ Gently through the shadows, /Gentle flames will glide,/ Small, and blue, and golden..." etc.

        Odes of Anacreon - Translated Into English Verse with Notes

      London: James Carpenter, 1820. Two volumes complete - Volume One - xlvi, [2], 50-175pp, [1] and Volume Two - 148pp. Contemporary full morocco, semi-raised bands, spines in six panels, title in gilt to second panel, volume number to fifth, remaining panels gilt with flower corner pieces and central fleur de lis, covers with thick and thin fillet bordering an anthemion roll frame with a central arabesque, gilt roll to edges, gilt flower roll to inner edges, watered silk doublures, a.e.g. with attractive fore-edge paintings to each volume; volume one showing four cherubs frolicking in an urn and volume two showing an old man under a blanket talking to a cherub who is holding a cup. Slightly rubbed to extremities, small ink spot to upper cover of volume one and lower cover of volume two. One or two spots of foxing, some off setting from frontispiece on to title, frontispiece probably lacking tissue guard, but generally bright and clean. Each volume with Selborne library stamp to foot of reverse of title and once to bottom margin of text leaf, volume one with small book label of Marion C. Walker to reverse of silk endpaper, small amount of glue remnant where a previous owners' book plate has been removed. Pencilled note to endpaper stating the book was from James Toovey's library (possibly the glue remnant mentioned above, it could well have been an oval bookplate like Toovey's); another pencilled note in the same hand notes that the binding is by Edwards of Halifax, though there is no direct evidence of this. The fore-edges appear to be initialled but I cannot make the initials out. The fore-edges look, to me, like they have some age, but Weber notes that most fore-edge paintings are twentieth century in origin. Reprint. Full Morocco. Very Good. 12mo. Fore-edge Painting.

        The Holy Bible containing the Old and New Testaments Vol 5, containing the New Testament

      Serampore [India]: Printed at the Mission Press 8vo (20.5 cm; 8.125"). 649 pp.. 1820 First and apparently sole printing of any portion of the Bible in Bikaneri (a.k.a.Vikanera), a Marwari language of the Rajasthan region of India. The text is in Devangari characters with an added title-page in English that reports the text was "translated from the originals into the Vikanera language by the Serampore missionaries." The title-page also makes clear that this was meant to be vol. V of a complete translation of the Bible, but that project was never completed and it seems no other books of the Bible have been translated into the language. The non-English title-page reads, in transliteration: "Svaraki sagali katha, jake adamyamkem uddharavei aura calanavei codem karyochem, u, Dharma pustaka, unko chedalo virada, va mhakem taranavala Bhagavanna Yisukhrishtaka phayadaki, Mangalika vatam." => The paper used for the text seems to be native-made laid stock. WorldCat and NUC combine to locate only six copies in U.S. libraries, one of which is this one, properly deaccessioned. Provenance: Ex–Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School library; properly deaccessioned. Contemporary boards covered with blue paper a bit scuffed, soiled, and with areas of wear; original paper shelfback replaced with cloth of a closely matching color. A very little library pencilling; no stamps.

        Neues Gesangbuch für die evangelisch-lutherische Gemeinde zu Luneburg, in Nova Scotia, nebst einem kleinen Catechismus Lutheri, kurzem Inbegriff der christlichen Lehre und Gebeten

      J.B.G Vogel, London 1820 - [1]-374, [8], [2], [1]-54, [43]-63 pages AND [1]-42 supplied in another contemporary copy - please see below. Measures 18 x 11 cm; 7 x 4.5 inches. Three works, including the rare hymn book and short Catechism prepared for the first Lutheran congregation in Canada. Scarce in any condition and variant of collation. This copy came to us with rudimentary old sewn repairs to cracked dry spine and with some leaves loose. It has been sympathetically restored by Peter Gregoroff using old leather to replace the spine, retaining original leather boards; it is complete as originally bound. As is the case with three other copies we consulted, the first 42 pages of Catechism at rear were not originally bound in. Page 43, where begin the Verschiedene Gebete, follows directly from blank endpaper after page 54 of the Episteln und Evangelia. We have seen only two copies complete with full Catechism bound in, one belonging to Temme's daughter. We have a defective copy of the Neues Gesangbuch [beginning at p. 167] that has the complete Catechism at rear. This is offered alongside the bound volume, so you will have the three works complete. In the restoration of this binding we chose not to shoe-horn in the 42 pages from the defective copy, but rather retain the original as issued/bound. [The defective copy has both the Episteln und Evangelia and the Kurzer Inbegrif Catechism complete.] The three works have separate title pages: the Neues Gesangbuch, the 54 page Episteln und Evangelia and [in the ancillary volume] the short catechism prepared by Ferdinand Temme for his Lunenburg congregation: Kurzer Inbegrif [sic] der christlichen Lehre in Fragen und Antworten nach Dr. Martin Luthers Katechismus zum auswendiglernen bestimmt für die Konfirmanden der Hochdeutschen Gemeine im Brittischen Nordamerika. The title page for this short Catechism [also London: Vogel, 1820] is placed between pages 18 and 19 of the work, as it is in the two complete copies we have consulted. Worldcat shows only the Toronto Public Library holding a copy of the Lunenburg Gesangbuch (with full title including all 3 works but without the 63 page Temme work in collation). Worldcat shows only one copy of the Temme Kurzer Inbegrif, also Toronto. Ferdinand Conrad Temme was the third Lutheran pastor to service the Lunenburg Nova Scotia area communities. A distinguished career of pedagogy in his homeland was interrupted by Napoleonic invasion from which he fled to Pennsylvania to serve as a pastor, from whence he was called to fill a vacancy in Lunenburg: "I reluctantly accepted this call, for reasons to myself to this day unaccountable and unknown, and on the 5th of February, 1808, commenced the voyage to this Siberia of America. On the 28th of April in the same year, I first trod the soil of Nova Scotia, at 2 o'clock at night." [D. Luther Roth: Acadie and the Acadians, 369f.] Recognizing the need for his congregations to have access to biblical study aids Temme was instrumental in writing and having printed teachings specifically for those in his care [see Roth p.374ff]. Full leather. Binding sound and supple. Minor marginal professional repair to a few leaves. Slight cropping to fore-edge of a few leaves. Size: 12 Mo. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Fatherless Rosa or, The Dangers of The Female Life.

      London William Emans [Thomas Kelly] 1820. 8vo. 522pp. + 1pp plates list and 1pp. ads to rear (including an ad for Huish's "Castle of Niolo" published in 1820 and "The Castle of Inchvally" by Stephen Cullen presumably an Emans reprinting of the 1796 work). Original endpapers (including an admonition against borrowing label to the front pastedown), internally clean and sharp. A very superior copy. The frontispiece portrait of Huish is present, as is the general engraved title page bearing the Kelly imprint (issued with the first installment of the 22 parts) followed by the Emans title page. It's likely that seeing as the two publisher's shared the production responsibilities for the work they issued two title pages at some point before the final installment was issued in 1821. The BL copy only has the Emans title page (as far as I can recall), and the Huish portrait is frequently missing. Regardless any imprint is scarce. Montague Summers himself only possessed the 1834 edition. A really splendid piece of Gothery.
