        DER LANGE VERBORGENE FREUND, ODER: GETREUER UND CHRISTLICHER UNTERRICHT FÃœR JEDERMANN, ENTHALTENDL WUNDERBARE UND KÃœNSTE, SOWOHL FÃœR DIE MENSCHEN ALS DAS VIEH

      Reading: Gedruckt für den Verfasser, 1820.. 100pp. Contemporary half calf and patterned boards. Corners heavily worn, boards worn. Light tanning and foxing. Very good. 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 appears rare, for all editions saw heavy use. Three copies located in OCLC - of these, only one copy in North America, at the American Antiquarian Society. The first copy we have ever handled of this book, although we have hoped to have one since we first learned of it forty years ago. AUSTIN 922. SHOEMAKER 1642. BÖTTE & TANNHOF 2462.

        The North American Review and Miscellaneous Journal, 238 Volumes (1820-1940)

      Boston; New York: Cummings and Hilliard; [et al.]. (1820-1940). First. Magazine. 238 bound volumes. Octavos. A near-complete run of the North American Review, America's most important literary journal of the 19th and early 20th Century. A consecutive run of volumes 10-248 dating from January 1820 through the final 1939-40 Winter issues, lacking only the first nine volumes, one quarterly issue from 1868 (October), and six monthly issues from 1894 (January-June). Most volumes are bound in full beige or blue cloth (13 are in half calf and marbled paper boards); volumes 174-248 have the original wrappers bound in.Founded in 1815, the NAR established itself as the most intellectual magazine in America. It quickly gained an international reputation and was a leading literary force in American letters throughout its 125-year history. Known for its long essay reviews of contemporary American and European literature, it also published scholarly articles on American society and current affairs, serving both as a platform for much of the most exciting social and literary commentary in the country, and as an arena for public debates on slavery and other controversial issues of the day.Most importantly, the magazine published contributions by some of America's best writers, ranging from Ralph Waldo Emerson to Thomas Wolfe, and including Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Walt Whitman, John Russell Lowell, Mark Twain, Henry James, John Steinbeck, and others. Among the many complete works featured in this long run are Emerson's lectures on "Michael Angelo," "Milton," and five other essays and lectures; Washington Irving's "The Northmen"; and Longfellow's "Defense of Poetry." Walt Whitman contributed seven essays over a 10-year period, including: "The Poetry of the Future," "Old Poets," and "Have We a National Literature," and Mark Twain contributed five satires and essays, including: "In Defense of Harriet Shelley," "To the Person Sitting in Darkness," and "Edmund Burke on Croker and Tammany."Also noteworthy is Chief Justice Lemuel Shaw's "Slavery and the Missouri Question" from 1820, and Lewis Cass's influential articles on American Indian Policy. Edgar Allan Poe's first published work, Tamerlane, and Other Poems, received its first national notice in the October 1827 number, Sidney Fisher published his influential review of Uncle Tom's Cabin in 1853, and Edward Hale published his famous early review of Whitman's Leaves of Grass in January 1856. During the Civil War Lowell became editor and published influential articles on Lincoln and Seward. After the war he contributed the many important lectures on literature that made him famous. Important works from the 20th Century include The Ambassadors by Henry James serialized in twelve monthly issues in 1903, "A Paper on Free Verse" by Robert Bridges from 1922, and five short stores by John Steinbeck, two of which: "The Red Pony" (a.k.a. "The Gift") and "The Great Mountains," were later published as the first two chapters of The Red Pony.An ex-library set with ink stamps or bookplates on most front pastedowns, a small embossed stamp or occasional ink stamp on most title pages, and an occasional ink number stamp on some bottom page margins. The 13 volumes in contemporary half calf are scuffed and worn, thus good only, about ten volumes have a few loose or detached leaves, and one short story by Thomas Hardy was neatly removed from the October 1903 issue, else overall a very good set. A scarce large assemblage of first appearances of major American literary works and articles. A list of notable selections is available. .

        A Picturesque Tour along the Rhine, from Mentz to Cologne: With Illustrations of the Scenes of Remarkable Events, and of Popular Traditions. Translated from the German by John Black.

      London Ackermann 1820 - XIV S., 1 Bl., 178 S. Mit 24 altkolorierten Aquatintatafeln von T. Sutherland und D. Havell nach Christian Georg (II.) Schütz sowie grenzkolorierter gestochener Faltkarte. Gr.-4° (34,5 x 29 cm). Grünes Halbmaroquin um 1900 mit Rückentitel, Rückenvergoldung und dreiseitigem Goldschnitt (signiert: "Sangorski & Sutcliffe"). Erste englische Ausgabe, das deutsche Original war 1819 in Wiesbaden ohne Illustrationen erschienen. Für die englische Ausgabe entwarf Schütz prachtvolle Aquatintaansichten von Bacharach, Bingen, Boppard, Braubach, Johannisberg, Koblenz, Köln, Mainz, Oberwesel, St. Goar etc., im vorliegenden Exemplar in Abdrucken vor der Numerierung auf Papier "Whatman 1818" und "1819". P. O. Rave gelten sie als "schönste Folge englischer Rheinstiche [.] Sie zeichnen sich durch eine köstliche Weichheit der plastischen Formung aus mit zart behandelten Übergängen der Tonwerte, wodurch eine gepflegte Einheitlichkeit des Bildganzen erzielt wird" (Rheinbilder der Romantik, in: Wallraff-Richartz-Jahrbuch, 1924). - Der Frankfurter Diplomat und Schriftsteller Gerning (1767-1837) war unter anderem Bundestagsbevollmächtigter von Hessen-Homburg und Direktor des Vereins für nassauische Altertumskunde. Seine langjährige Freundschaft mit Goethe zerbrach auch am Vorwurf der Undankbarkeit des großen Dichters: "So geschah mir's mit meinem deutschen Rheinwerk, und ich bin nun kein Narr, ihm noch die englischen Prachtkupfer obendrein zu spenden" (aus einem Brief Gernings an Karl Ludwig von Knebel, zitiert nach Bode, Johann Ludwig Christ, S. 436). - Vorderes Innengelenk aufgeplatzt, Buchblock aber fest eingehängt. Wie stets etwas gebräunt und stockfleckig, acht Tafeln mit deutlicher Bräunung, die Ansicht von Mainz lose.

Not in Wing. L only in ESTC on-line. Not in Taylor Mathematical practitioners in Tudor and Stewart England (But see No 391, 405, 408, and 429 for other editions). This book was clearly written, and issued, in stages; something which the ESTC on-line entry does not make at all clear. First issued in 1678, in 4to. Re-issued in 1680. Again in 3 separate issues of 1684, undifferentiated in Wing. (a) The first state ended at Page 88 with the word "Finis", under which is an advertisement; "There will be Published the Practical part of the Sea with some Queries in Astronomy, useful in navigation, by the same Author." This issue had five plates, four of them folding. (b) An issue with 110 pages. This issue adds an "Appendix", pages 89-110, gatherings G and H (G7,H4), and had an additional folding plate at page 95: making 6 plates, five of them folding. This issue retains the words "Finis" and the advt. at the bottom of page 88 (and so presumably contains a reissue of the earlier sheets). (c) An issue of 157,[1] pages. This issue adds pages 111-157, and adds two further plates; making a complete tally of 8 plates, 7 of them folding. This issue retains "Finis" at the bottom of page 88 and at p. 110, again suggesting re-use of the original sheets. Our issue of 1687 is the last and most complete. This also retains the word "Finis" at the bottom of pages 88 and 110. This edition adds considerably to the wording on the title page describing the additional contents. In this edition an extra preliminary leaf, an imprimatur, is added producing a final collation of [10], 157,[1], 155-161 [i.e. 159-165],[13]p. [8] leaves of plates. New text added here in the final 12 unnumbered pages concerns Blackborow's dispute with Flamsteed. Entitled "A Letter from a worthy friend concerning Mr. Flamsteed's behaviour in this controversy" it is signed "B.D", Dated "Received the 16th of October, 1686", it is thus clearly first issued here. Blackborow was a strong anti-Copernican and adds to his critical analysis of Bond's calculations arguments against the earth's motion based on the absence of solar and stellar paralax which he expected to be clearly noticeable if the earth revolved about the sun. Throughout the work Blackborow uses the meridian and parallel of the "Lyzard" and of "Bermudas" to exemplify his argument. The lively letter addressed to Blackborow, (but perhaps by him?) here first added commends Blackborow for his honourable desire to save the lives of sailors and speaks of his "long and diligent application to Sea-affairs." He confirms that the adherence of modern navigators to Mercator "is a very great and hazardous mistake" and condemns Flamsteed whom he calls a "pugnatious little man" for his campaign of running round the coffee houses denigrating Blackborow's treatise.

        Notes sur la théorie des ondes donnée par M. Poisson (voyez Académie Royale des Sciences de Paris année 1816). Lu a la séance du 27 février 1820.

      Accademia delle Scienze,, Torino, 1820 - In-4° (270x215mm), pp. (2), 113-151, legatura moderna m. pelle con titolo impresso verticalmente in oro al dorso. Piatti in cartone marmorizzato. Conservate all'interno le brossure originali in marmorizzatura rosa. Dedica autografa del Plana alla prima c. bianca: "A Monsieur Gautier Docteur ès sciences de l'Académie de Paris. De la parte de l'Auteur". Ottimo e marginoso esemplare. Prima edizione a sé, rarissima; estratto dai "Mémoires de l'Académie des Sciences de Turin", vol. XXV, del 1820. Importante contributo planiano di analisi matematica. Il Plana (Voghera, 1781-Torino, 1864), fu allievo a Parigi di Lagrange e Legendre, professore di astronomia all'Università di Torino dal 1811. Le sue ricerche più significative riguardano il moto lunare; esse, condotte inizialmente insieme con Francesco Carlini, confluirono nell'importante opera Théorie du mouvement de la lune (1832). Compì inoltre importanti ricerche sulla geodia, la fisica matematica e la meccanica celeste. La sua celebrità gli deriva non solo da tali studi e dall'essere egli stato il direttore dell’Osservatorio Astronomico torinese dopo il proprio maestro, Giovan Battista Beccaria, ma anche per dal cattivo carattere. che lo portò a scontrarsi con altre illustri personalità del suo tempo; la lunga polemica che ebbe con Laplace ebbe poi una conclusione a suo favore per ammissione dello stesso astronomo francese nel Traité de mèchanique céleste. Egli lasciò una cospicua serie di manoscritti all’Accademia delle Scienze di Torino, della quale fu Presidente dal 1851 sino alla morte. Fu inoltre socio dell’Académie des Sciences di Parigi e delle Royal Society di Londra (dal 1827) e di Edimburgo (dal 1835). Ronalds, 400-401. Poggendorff, II, 460.

        Genio constitucional. @Nos. 1-77 and 7 supplements (6 numbered and 1 unnumbered), a complete run.

      Porto, [colophon] na Typ. de Viuva Alvarez Ribeiro & Filhos, October 2-December 30, 1820. - Masthead has woodcut depicting a winged cherub with torch and trumpet. Each issue with 4 pp.; supplements range from 1 to 4 pp. 77 issues and 7 supplements in 1 volume. 4°, contemporary paste paper wrappers (spine reinforced and chipped). Uncut. Faint staining to inner margin, minor soiling and stains. Internally in fine condition, overall very good. 77 issues and 7 supplements in 1 volume. ---- FIRST EDITION, a very rare COMPLETE RUN of this liberal journal, with what may be the earliest published work by Almeida Garrett.The @Genio (edited by Alfredo Braga and António Luís de Abreu) commenced publication shortly after the Porto military uprising of August 24, 1820. The revolt, which toppled the regency of Marshal Beresford, prompted a veritable revolution in Portuguese institutions and the decisive (if short-lived) triumph of liberalism. The @Genio constitucional provides almost daily coverage of political developments in Porto, Lisbon, and elsewhere in Portugal as new political institutions emerged under the direction of the Junta Provisional, leading to the election of representatives to the new Côrtes Constituintes in December 1820. In its editorials, the @Genio constitucional strongly supports the adoption of a liberal constitution similar to the Spanish constitution of 1812, but opposes those who would unite Spain and Portugal under one liberal government. Considerable space is also given to foreign news - particularly reaction in England and elsewhere to the Portuguese revolution - and to the formation of the Sociedade Promotora da Agricultura, das Artes, e da Industria em Geral.The @Supplemento ao Genio constitutional Nº 60 (9 December 1820) contains what is perhaps the @first published work of João Baptista da Silva d'Almeida, Visconde de Almeida Garrett: a letter, written on behalf of the Corpo Academico of the Universidade de Coimbra, protesting their disenfranchisement in the election of representatives to the Côrtes. His earliest works were previously believed to date to 1821: the @O dia vinte quatro d'Agosto. Anno I (in support of the Porto uprising), the @Versos ao Corpo Academico, and the controversial @Retrato de Venus, 1821.Almeida Garrett (1799-1854) was a man of great talent and far-reaching interests: "As journalist, founder and editor of several short-lived newspapers, as a stylist and master of prose, his country's chief lyric poet in the first half of the nineteenth century . . . and greatest dramatist since the sixteenth; as politician and one of the most eloquent of all Portugal's orators, an enthusiastic if unscientific folk-lorist, a novelist, critic, diplomatist, soldier, jurist and judge, Almeida Garrett played many parts and with success" (Bell, @Portuguese Literature pp. 288-89).---- Rafael & Santos, @Jornais e revistas portugueses do séc.

The contemporary calf bindings very handsome and proper, also beautifully preserved, one hinge of volume three quite tender, easily repairable. RARE, OF ZOTTI’S TWO PRINTINGS OF DANTE THE TOTAL NUMBER LISTED IN LIBRARY HOLDINGS IS ONLY 43 COPIES, AND THIS EDITION BEING ONLY 23 OF THOSE. Of these listed, some are incomplete and most do not have the portrait of Dante. Zotti, an Italian printer living in London but publishing in Italian was an important figure in the importation of Italian literature into the English speaking world. It is in no way surprising that this, Zotti’s second edition of Dante, was printed the same year as the first complete modern English translation. Zotti’s Dante includes important notes and commentary, Zotti’s introduction, and a ‘Vita’ edited from that of Girolamo Tiraboschi. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

To which is affixed an historical account of the most celebrated banners and orders of chivalry, being emblematic and descriptive of the origin and honor formerly attached to bearing gonfanons, or gonfalons, chivalric banners, and lances." Marbled endpapers. The attractive old binding is probably mid-nineteenth century. Spine with six panels, two leathers spine labels and gilt rules. Top edge gilt , others untrimmed.

Montmorency (1778-1827) was a strong proponent of the use of the lance. He studied the Polish system and recommended it to be used in the exercises of the British Cavalry. In 1816 four regiments of British Lancer was formed. This publication was to be used as a correct guide. Thimm 187. Quarto [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Very attractive and clean. Internally in fine condition. Overall very good to fine. Foliated by the same hand as the text. Stamp and stamped accession number of Dr. José Bayolo Pacheco de Amorim on front free endleaf verso. ---- Manuscript copy of a five-act tragedy in rhymed verse. The translator, Victor Profirio de Borja, was a Portuguese actor who emigrated to Brazil in the early nineteenth century. Around 1815 he attempted to establish a rival to the Real Teatro São João (founded in 1813), buying land for the purpose of building a theater in Rua Lavradio, Rio de Janeiro. Borja acted in Rio de Janeiro in the 1820s, and according to Sacramento Blake, published a small folio volume entitled @Plano para a edificação de um teatro publico, Rio de Janeiro, 1824. He is considered a Brazilian by virtue of having been in Brazil and sworn allegiance to the 1824 Brazilian constitution. It is not known if this translation of Medêa was staged in Rio de Janeiro at the time. The first leaf contains a dedication signed by Borja to an "amigo", including twelve lines of verse addressing the dedicatee with the familiar form of "you." The leaf preceding this, which presumably had the name of the dedicatee, has been removed.Longepierre's @Médée was first published in 1694 and performed that year at the Théâtre de la rue des Fossés Saint-Germain, Paris. Despite Longpierre's denials, it bears strong similarities to Corneille's version, which had been published in 1639. The major differences are in Act IV,where the character Aegeus is eliminated and Medea's reason for vengeance toward Jason is developed. In the preface Longepierre directly answers the accusation that he copied this work from Corneille. He says he is going back to the style of the ancients for drama: modern, frivolous style is inappropriate for tragedy. If his @Medea is similar to Corneille's, it's because both of them use Seneca's @Medea as their starting point. He admires Corneille, he says, but this play isn't based on Corneille's work.When Borja wrote his translation in the early nineteenth century, the Longepierre version was more popular than that of Corneille. Performed only sixteen times until 1728, the revival of the Longepierre play was greatly enhanced through the acting abilites of Mlle. Balicour in the leading role. It remained in the repertory for 90 years, being produced 146 times, and was also parodied by Donique and Riccoboni in Italian, @La Méchante femme, October 29, 1728, at the Theatre Italien. Both La Harpe and Voltaire (with reservations) preferred this version to Corneille's.M. Hilaire-Bernard de Requeleyne, Baron de Longepierre (1659-1721), was a tutor to French princes and considered the finest bibliophile of his generation. His Greek was sufficient to publish translations of Anacreon, Sappho, Bion, and Moschus. Greatly interested in theater, he wrote @Parallèle de Corneille et Racine, 1686. In addition to @Médée, he composed @Sésostris (1694) and @Electre (1702).---- See Sacramento Blake, VII, 382, giving the name as Victor Porphirio de Borja.

        A Letter to Earl Bathurst, Secretary of State for the Colonial Department

      James Ridgway, London 1820 - Octavo, fine condition in Aquarius binding of full navy calf, gilt spine. Bennet's attack on Macquarie precipitating the Bigge enquiry. An important early colonial work, Bennet's attack on the administration of Governor Macquarie, was an important document that precipitated the enquiry by Commissioner Bigge and the end of Macquarie's command in New South Wales. Bennet (1777-1836) was a British politician who led a crusade to reduce crime, investigate prisons and transportation while reforming the London police. With a charge to 'to diminish the sum of human misery' Bennet worked tirelessly to expose maladministration and archaic practices in British gaols and the transportation system generally. In this published address to Lord Bathurst, Macquarie is accused of extravagance and autocracy. However, writing from England, Bennet relied upon prejudiced testimonies from Macquarie's enemies (including the indefatigable Reverend Samuel Marsden) and ultimately presented a biased version of events. Although Bennet's work in England was broad and enlightened, his critique of convict administration became a tool for colonial 'exclusives' who wished to end Macquarie's term as governor of New South Wales. A Letter to Earl Bathurst? remains a highly informative account of transportation and early colonial society generally, it includes useful statistical information including population figures, a civil list of persons holding government posts and shipping arrivals and departures for the years 1819-20. Furthermore, the appendix prints letters from Governor Macquarie, Samuel Marsden, W.H. Moore and others. Marsden's letter concerning affairs at the Parramatta hospital is a fine work of vitriol, asserting 'For the number of persons in the hospital, I do not believe that there is such an infamous brothel in the whole universe?I behold drunkenness, whoredom, sickness and death?in the room where the dead are lying, debaucheries are going on.'.
