        The Black Book; or, Corruption Unmasked! Being an account of places, pensions, and sinecures, the revenues of the clergy and landed aristocracy...the Civil List...the robbery of charitable foundations...the whole forming a complete exposition of the cost, influence, patronage, and corruption of the Borough Government

      London: John Fairburn, 1820. First Edition. 1 vols. 8vo. Contemporary boards, black stained edges, rebacked and with new corners, some internal foxing, else a nice, crisp copy. First Edition. 1 vols. 8vo. "The Bible of the Reformers". The first edition of a book which led the battle for electoral reform in 19th Century England, being a compilation of the financial, political, ecclesiastical, and nepotistic abuses which were sustained under the institution of rotten and pocket boroughs, and which brought about the passage of the Reform bill of 1832. The Bill redistributed 143 parliamentary seats to industrial areas, providing more proportional representation, reducing the traditional powers of the large landowners and the aristocracy, and strengthening the British system of parliamentary democracy. Wade's fascinating exposé went into numerous editions, in which he named names, listed unearned compensations, pointed out abuses of patronage, the milking of foundations, political log-rolling, influence peddling and other conduct, all of which has a curiously modern ring. "Religion a trade, justice a trade, government a trade--all for money; nothing for the public good." A fierce and fascinating book. PMM 296; Kress C.638

        Versuch einer systematischen Uebersicht der Heilquellen des russischen Reichs [A systematic survey on the mineral springs of the Russian Empire].

      Kays. Akad. d. Wiss. St. Petersburg 1820 - Octavo (20.5 x 13 cm). XVIII, including title, 340pp., with a large folding map of the Russian Empire and 10 maps of regions with outlines in contemporary colour. Contemporary red half morocco over marbled boards, gilt lettering to spine; joints in upper margin slightly split. Detailed and systematic description of mineral springs of the Russian Empire along with bibliography of Russian and foreign publications on the subject. The text is accompanied by a folding map of the Russian Empire and maps of regions, including governorates of St. Petersburg, Moscow, Irkutsk, Kharkow, Orenburg and Taurida, showing mineral springs sources. Uncommon work by the Russia's eminent chemist. Alexander Nicolaus Scherer (1771 – 1824) was a Saint Petersburg-born German chemist and pharmacologist. After graduating from a University in Germany, Scherer returned to Russia to teach chemistry and pharmacy at the medico-surgical academy. He revolutionised chemistry education in Russia, replacing outdated books, largely old translations of foreign sources, with his works based on latest researches of the eminent chemists of the time - Lavoisier, Fourcroy and Tromsdorff. Scherer also introduced a much more practical approach to teaching, aiming to educate his students about different ways a theory could be put into practice. In 1815 he became a full member of the St. Petersburg Academy of Sciences. Scherer was also instrumental in the creation of the Pharmaceutical Society of St. Petersburg.

Critics immediately recognized the opera's individuality, and the première. was Meyerbeer's first major success. There were further Italian productions, and the opera was staged internationally: in 1820 Weber produced his friend's work in Dresden, and in 1820 and 1821 it was also performed in Berlin, Vienna, Budapest, Brno, and Warsaw."

        Mémoires et anecdotes sur la dynastie régnante des djogouns, souverains du Japon, avec la description des fêtes et cérémonies observées aux différentes epoques de l'année a la cour de ces princes, et un appendice contenant des détails sur la poésie des Japonais, leur manière de diviser l'année, etc; ouvrage orné de planches gravées et coloriées, tiré des originaux Japonais par M. Titsingh; publié avec les notes et éclaircissemens par M. Abel Rémusat.

      - Paris, A. Nepveu, 1820. 8vo (19.3 x 12.0 cm). xxviii, 302 pp., one hand-coloured folded frontispiece, one engraved folded table, five hand-coloured folded plates. Contemporary full tree calf. Spine rich gilt including empire vignettes and a red morocco label with gilt title. Marbled endpapers. Edges speckled.l Isaac Titsingh (1745-1812) was a Dutch surgeon, scholar, merchant and ambassador. During a long career in East Asia, Titsingh was a senior official of the Dutch East India Company. Between 1779 and 1784 he was head of a factory in Deshima, then the only "eye" between Japan and the rest of the world. 18th and early 19th century Japan was much of a mystery to foreigners. This work unveils some its secrets. However, it does not only deal with the Japanese and their customs, but also reports on the geology of the country and in particular on the active volcanos. Two of the large, hand-coloured folded plates depict eruptions; of the Asama-Yama, and of a volcano in the Simahara district. The first of these plates, as well as a view of the island of Deshima with the Dutch factory were used again in Titsingh's "Byzonderheden over Japan", volume II (1825), see Landwehr. This edition is the first one published. The French sinologist Jean Pierre Abel Rémusat (1788-1832) edited the work after Titsingh's death in Paris. An English translation was published in 1822 and formed the basis of a translation (back?) into Dutch. Boards slightly rubbed, caption of one plate shaved with some small loss of text. Inner front hinge reinforced, otherwise a fine copy of this very rare work. Brunet V, 28316; Landwehr 456 (not this work, but "Byzonderheden over Japan", see above). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        TRAVELS IN BRAZIL IN 1815, 1816, AND 1817: Translated from the German and Illustrated with Engravings.

      Sir Richard Phillips,, London: 1820 - 112 pp. Second British edition; text in English; later, full speckled calf; black morocco label affixed to spine gilt stamped across; beige endpapers; illustrations complete with seven plates, one folding-out; and two fold-out aquatints. Binding tight; boards clean; plates with moderate foxing; aquatints fresh; fold-out edges lightly ragged not affecting image; see additional images provided. Quoting Borba 544: "Prince Maximilian of Wied-Neuwied travelled through Brazil from 1815 to 1817, accompanied by the naturalists Georg Freyreiss and Friedrich Sellow. From Rio they journeyed to Cabo Frio, along the coast of Ilheus, and from there they sailed up the Jequitinhonha to the borders of Minas Geraes, finally reaching Bahia. From a scientific point of view this expedition was one of the most profitable of the nineteenth century. The enormous zoological collections which were assembled are today in the American Museum of Natural History of New York, acquired by them in 1870. When the work first appeared copies were sold for one thousand francs, an extravagant sum at that time. This English translation is of only the first volume of the [2 vol.] original edition. Quoting the text, p. 91: "There are several houses scattered about in this place, the inhabitants of which are very fond of music and dancing; one played the (violas) guittar, and the young people danced the Baduca, in which the body undergoes various contorsions, beating the time with their hands, and snapping two fingers of each hand alternately, in the manner of the Spanish castanets. Although the taste for dancing and music is general throughout these parts, yet they evince no disposition for the pleasures of the table, at least in most places. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Observations on a Letter by John Eardley Eardley-Wilmot, Esq. One of His Majesty's Justices of the Peace for the County of Warwick, To the Magistrates of Warwickshire. London: Published by T. & G. Underwood and Beilly and Knott, Birmingham, 1820. [iv], 23 pp. With a half-title. Recent staff marbled wrappers, printed paper title label to front cover. Moderate toning to text, some edgewear to title page. A very good copy of a rare pamphlet. $500. * Only edition. A paper on the increase in crime in Warwickshire, relative to the size of population, its causes and possible remedies. The author suggests that young offenders must be punished as much as older offenders. The paper was in response to Eardley-Wilmot's A Letter to the Magistrates of England on the Increase of Crime: And an Efficient Remedy Suggested for Their Consideration, first published in 1820, which suggesting that severe punishment of juvenile offenders often led them to a lifetime of criminal activity. He also argued for better prison conditions as an aid to rehabilitation of offenders, a claim refuted in Observations.

First edition of one of the most extensive and important lithographic works published in the early days of the medium. Lasteyrie (1759-1849), agronomist, industrialist, and philanthropist, was much involved in modernizing the agricultural techniques practiced in France. He had taken an interest in lithography almost from the beginning and was, in large part, responsible for making Paris the lithographic center of the world. He established his first lithographic press in Paris in 1815 and did much commercial work for the government, printing of caricatures, vanity projects for the "high society" of the city, and, above all, the drawings of artists and amateurs. The plates, all signed "C. de Last," contain depictions of farm buildings of various sorts; many kinds of fences, barriers, and walls; carriages, wagons, and wheel barrows; farm tools including hoes and rakes; distillation apparatus; bee hives of many sorts; wine-making equipment; irrigation devices including pumps, water raising devices, canals, and ditches; harnesses for horses, cows, and goats; racks to dry crops; bridges; furnaces; mills; baskets to be placed on horses; chicken coops; ladders; trellises; gates; shelves for aging cheeses; dairy equipment; picks and axes; barns; bird houses; silos; designs for stalls for horses and cows; dams; green houses; etc.; etc. A fine and attractive copy.

        Principles of Political Economy considered with a view to their practical application.

      London John Murray 1820 - First edition. 8vo., vi, 601 pp., small ownership stamp to lower outside corner of title-page, small, early 20th century bookseller's label to lower outside corner of verso of upper free endpaper, a little age-toning and small ink smudge to title, otherwise near-fine, nineteenth century half calf over marbled boards, rubbed at extremities, spine faded, a very good copy. 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).

        ATLAS :) Carte topographique militaire des Alpes comprenant le Piémont, la Savoye, le Comté de Nice, le Vallais, le Duché de Gênes, le Milanais et partie des Etats limitrophes.

      à Paris, 1820, - gr. in-folio, titre des cartes: 1 f. simple: Tableau pour servir à l?assemblage (aux frontières coloriées) / cartes doubles en plano: Genève / le Simplon / Valteline / Chambert / Turin / Milan / Briançon / Alexandrie / Gênes / Antibes (Avec le titre général) / Nice / La Spezia, reliure d?origine en d.-veau vert, roulettes dorées sur les plats, dos lisse avec titre et filets dorés. Un grand atlas sur la topographie militaire des Alpes. Rarement, complet. Avec le XIXe siècle commencent les grandes réalisations cartographiques modernes, carte de l'état-major sarde ou de l'état-major français par exemple. Une dizaine de savants dont deux cartographes, dirigés par le général Sanson responsable du Dépôt de la Guerre travaillèrent à l'automne 1802 au sein de la Commission de normalisation dans le but d'uniformiser les méthodes employées. Ils résolurent d'imposer l'utilisation d'instruments de mesure plus justes, de déterminer les nivellements à partir du niveau de la mer, d'interdire l'usage de plusieurs perspectives sur une même carte, d'orienter les cartes le nord en haut, d'utiliser des signes conventionnels, d'adopter une gamme d'écritures, etc. Dans le même temps, l'utilisation du système métrique pour le calcul de l'échelle et pour la mesure de la méridienne de France donne les bases d'un système moderne.C'est Jean-Baptiste Raymond, ingénieur-géographe militaire qui le premier applique ces nouvelles normes aux diverses cartes de la Savoie qu'il réalise entre 1800 et 1830. Pour la Carte topographique militaire des Alpes en douze feuilles publiée en 1820, il utilise la projection du Dépôt de la Guerre, (ou Flamsteed modifiée), une échelle au 1/200.000e, et un système de hachures avec éclairement oblique selon les préconisations de la Commission de 1802. La clarté du résultat lui vaudra de servir de référence pendant une partie du XIXe siècle. Le dessin des montagnes reprend celui de Bacler d?Albe (avec corrections). Il faut souligner la richesse en cols et en passages dans toutes les régions alpestres. ?La carte des Alpes de Raymond constitua pour la cartographie alpine du XIXe siécle une oeuvre importante puisque le levé topographique est fondé sur la triangulation et que les topographes sardes la considèrent comme une référence.

      Karlsruhe. 1820. Hardback. 1st Edition. Period boards. 8vo. 30 pages ; 21 cm. In German. Title translates to, “Most humble presentation of the Grand Ducal Baden Upper Council of the Israelites in the name of all the Israelite citizen of the Grand Duchy … at the hearing on 27 June 1820…” This is a speech to introduce the Council of the Jews of Baden to the Baron of Baden and to negotiate the rights of the Jews of Baden. “Baden, part of the Land of Baden-Wuerttemberg, Germany. The former grand duchy was created in 1806 from parts of various territories (including the Palatinate) , where until then the Jews had formed no united community or shared a common history… After the grand duchy of Baden was created, the position of its Schutzjuden (‘protected Jews') improved. In the first constitutional edict of May 14, 1807, Judaism was recognized as a tolerated religion; a year later, the sixth edict afforded the Jews irrevocable civil rights and abolished the marriage restrictions imposed on them (see Familiants' Laws ) … The constitution of 1818 implicitly confirmed the civil rights granted to the Jews by the edicts but denied them equal political rights. The struggle for emancipation focused on local civil rights and met with fierce and sometimes violent resistance in many villages and towns. Baden's liberal movement failed to endorse the idea of Jewish emancipation, most of its leading figures echoing public sentiment on the matter instead. Anti-Jewish outrages, often connected with the issue of emancipation, occurred in Baden in 1819 ( Hep-Hep ) , 1830, 1848, and 1862…” (Jewish Virtual Library, 2016) SUBJECT(S) : Jews -- Germany -- Baden -- History. OCLC lists 2 copies worldwide (JTS & UNIV BIBL JOHANN CHRISTIAN SENCKENBERG) . Ex-library with usual markings and Jewish institutional sticker. About good condition. (Ger-50-16) .
