        Darstellung der fünf Welttheile durch Zufammenfetzung in eine Kugel aehnliche Gestalt, zur leichteren Vorstellung und Gebrauch beim geographischen Unterricht in Schulen über die Beschaffenheit & Eintheilung der Erde.

      Stuttgart: Friedrich G. Schutz, circa 1820. Handcoloured paper globe comprising six gores measuring 170 x 65 mm., wonderfully preserved with the original cord ties within the publisher's folding card case with printed onlays; accompanied by a folding suite of 15 handcoloured lithographic plates measuring 97 x 130 mm. depicting the peoples of the Earth, and a loose engraved card sheet detailing the orbit and poles of the earth. A splendid early nineteenth-century German handcoloured paper globe, here offered complete with the original publisher's ensemble containing a folding suite of 15 plates depicting native peoples of the earth and other educational aids. Two of the plates depict Australian Aboriginal subjects. The globe and its accompaniments are a fine example of late enlightenment publishing for the benefit of children. The publisher Schutz states his plan for a novel educational aid 'to facilitate the introduction and use of geographic education in schools about the nature and classification of the earth'. By presenting the countries of the world as a readily assembled globe to be handled by children, abstract geographical concepts could be grasped with relative ease.The paper globe is significant for the information that accompanies it, especially the suite of 15 folding plates illustrating the peoples of the world. Geographers and ethnologists of the early nineteenth-century were fascinated by the relationship between race, climate and environment. In this wonderful package Schutz presents the regions of the earth as a paper globe alongside skilfully lithographed depictions of its peoples. In this way geographical space is linked to costumes and appearances in a manner comprehensible for children. Two of the plates depict Australian Aborigines, one from Van Diemen's Land and the other from New Holland (specifically, Western Australia), who is curiously illustrated with a bow and arrow. The Pacific Islands are represented by a Tahitian warrior in a tapa wrap brandishing an axe.In addition to the paper globe and folding plates, the folding case contains a loose handcoloured engraved card sheet with several diagrams explaining the orbit and poles of the earth. The card is printed on both sides and includes delicate engravings of the sun's obit and the relationship between the tilt of the earth and her seasons. The card is attached to a printed letterpress sheet elucidating the diagrams in further detail.This example is a rarity, here offered complete in the original publisher's folding case with four detailed letterpress onlays. A folding flap protecting the ethnological portraits features a further fine lithographic plate titled "Künstlicher erd Globus" (reproduction earth globe). This lithograph is a humorous composite, featuring amongst other figures an Ottoman maiden reclining on a divan facing an African beauty flanked by a lion and a crocodile. Paper children's globes are rare by their very nature, and this example preserved in its complete, original condition is an unusual survival. In fine condition.

        Van geneeskunst naar geneeskunde - antieke kopergravure.

      VAN GENEESKUNST NAAR GENEESKUNDESkelet met spierstelsel, anonieme kopergravure vervaardigd rond 1820, later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. (papiergrootte) 180 x 67 cm.Deze levensgrote anatomische prent werd gebruikt in het onderwijs in een tijdperk waarin geneeskunst veranderde in geneeskunde. Het in kaart brengen van de anatomie van de mens werd in die tijd voltooid en verder gesystematiseerd. Hier zien we het menselijk skelet van de rugzijde, met links details van het spierstelsel en rechts van bottenstructuur, daarboven en onder halswervelkolom en voet.Tot laat in de 19e eeuw was kennis van genezen nog beperkt en de kundigheid van de arts hing af van intelligentie, inventiviteit en een portie lef. Onder de beoefening van de geneeskunst trof je alles wat onder de zon leefde. Mensen die oprecht, zorgvuldig en kritisch de kunst van het genezen beoefenden, mensen die met buitenissige ideeën experimenteerden en verrassende resultaten boekten, maar ook mensen die geloofden in hun eigen methoden en middelen, maar twijfelachtige resultaten bereikten: kwakzalvers.In Nederland krijgt geneeskunst pas in 1865 onder Thorbecke, een wetenschappelijke status en worden opleidingen geïnstitutionaliseerd. Lessen in de anatomie vinden dan al niet meer plaats in anatomische theaters, maar in klaslokalen en aan de hand van medische verzamelingen.Prijs: ?2.950,- (incl. lijst, incl. 21% BTW).

        Gezicht op Antwerpen - ca. 1820.

      GEZICHT OP ANTWERPEN AAN DE VOORAVOND VAN DE INDUSTRIËLE REVOLUTIEAntwerpen gezien vanaf de Linkeroever ?Vue d?Anvers - Prise de la tete de Flandre?, lithografie uitgegeven te Parijs ca. 1820, in de tijd met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 35,4 x 54,6 cm.De Industriële Revolutie in de 19de eeuw bracht Antwerpen een enorme uitbreiding van het handelsvervoer en de stad groeide uit tot een wereldhaven. Stoomkracht voerde de vaarsnelheid van schepen op en de nieuwe werelddelen zorgden nu voor de bevoorrading van grondstoffen en dienden tevens als afzetmarkt voor bewerkte goederen.De maritieme groothandel had zijn weerslag op de stad en het omliggende. Voor de ontwikkeling van de handel in de 16de eeuw moesten de oude poorten, bruggen en ruien uit de middeleeuwen verdwijnen. Zo werd ook in de 19de eeuw Antwerpen herschapen, maar op een veel grotere schaal. De stad trok werkkrachten van het land aan en de bevolking groeide. Rondom de stadskern werden allerlei straten en wijken gebouwd, zodat de stad snel uitbreidde. De oude fortengordel, de Spaanse vesten, moesten hiervoor afgebroken worden.De kunstenaar lijkt met de pastorale voorgrond, de koeien, het melkmeisje, de slapende boer, nog even de oude tijd te willen vasthouden. Op een afstand leggen de stoomschepen in de stad aan, terwijl het leven op de Linkeroever nog niet zo snel gaat. Nog even.Prijs: ?2.250,- (incl. lijst).

        Magnalia Christi Americana: or, the Ecclesiastical History of New-England from Its First Planting in the Year 1620, Unto the Year of Our Lord, 1689

      Hartford: Silas Andrus, 1820. First U.S. edition. later full brown calf, burgundy gilt lettered spine labels. Some rubbing and scuffing of covers, browning and some foxing throughout, top of title page excised, albeit a nice copy. Quarto. Two volumes, complete. 573 pp.; 595 pp The books were owned by Rev. Herman Landon Vail (1790-1870), each volume signed by him Cotton Mather, FRS (February 12, 1663 – February 13, 1728; A.B. 1678, Harvard College; A.M. 1681, honorary doctorate 1710, University of Glasgow) was a socially and politically influential New England Puritan minister, prolific author, and pamphleteer. Known for his vigorous support for the Salem witch trials, he also left a scientific legacy due to his hybridization experiments and his promotion of inoculation for disease prevention. He was subsequently denied the Presidency of Harvard College which his father, Increase, had held. Mather wrote more than 450 books and pamphlets, and his ubiquitous literary works made him one of the most influential religious leaders in America. Mather set the moral tone in the colonies, and sounded the call for second- and third-generation Puritans, whose parents had left England for the New England colonies of North America, to return to the theological roots of Puritanism. The most important of these, Magnalia Christi Americana (1702), comprises seven distinct books, many of which depict biographical and historical narratives. From his religious training, Mather viewed the importance of texts for elaborating meaning and for bridging different moments of history—linking, for instance, the Biblical stories of Noah and Abraham with the arrival of such eminent leaders as John Eliot, John Winthrop, and his own father, Increase. Highly influential, Mather was a force to be reckoned with in secular, as well as in spiritual, matters. After the fall of James II of England, in 1688, Mather was among the leaders of the successful revolt against James' governor of the consolidated Dominion of New England, Sir Edmund Andros. Mather was not known for writing in a neutral, unbiased perspective. Many, if not all, of his writings had bits and pieces of his own personal life in them or were written for personal reasons. In 1689, Mather published Memorable Providences, detailing the supposed afflictions of several children in the Goodwin family in Boston. Catholic washerwoman Goody Glover was convicted of witchcraft and executed in this case. Robert Calef, a contemporary critic of Mather, considered this book responsible for laying the groundwork for the Salem witch trials three years later: Mr Cotton Mather, was the most active and forward of any Minister in the Country in those matters, taking home one of the Children, and managing such Intreagues with that Child, and after printing such an account of the whole, in his Memorable Providences, as conduced much to the kindling of those Flames, that in Sir Williams time threatened the devouring of this Country. Nineteenth-century historian Charles Wentworth Upham shared the view that the afflicted in Salem were imitating the Goodwin children, but put the blame on both Cotton and his father, Increase Mather: They are answerable... more than almost any other men have been, for the opinions of their time. It was, indeed a superstitious age; but made much more so by their operations, influence, and writings, beginning with Increase Mather's movement, at the assembly of Ministers, in 1681, and ending with Cotton Mather's dealings with the Goodwin children, and the account thereof which he printed and circulated far and wide. For this reason, then in the first place, I hold those two men responsible for what is called 'Salem Witchcraft.' -wikipedia[Sabin 46393. Howes M391 "Most famous 18th century American book."].

        Constitutional Law

      1820. (CONSTITUTION). Constitutional Law: Comprizing the Declaration of Independence; the Articles of Confederation; the Constitution of the United States; And the Constitutions of the Several States Composing the Union. Washington City: Gales and Seaton, 1820. Tall 12mo, original half tan and blue-gray paper-covered boards, uncut and partially unopened; pp. (iv), 1-409, (1). Housed in a custom folding chemise and half morocco slipcase. $4500.First expanded edition of this major compilation of AmericaÂ’s constitutions, featuring printings of the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, the federal Constitution, and the constitutions of 23 states—including the 1780 Massachusetts Constitution, the “oldest functioning constitution in the world”—the first collection with the most recent constitutions of Alabama (1819) and Maine (1820), scarce in original paper-covered boards, housed in a custom chemise, slipcase.“Independence destroyed the old legal foundation of the states, and made it necessary to provide a new oneÂ… As early as May 1775, colonies began to apply to Congress for advice to guide them” (Hinsdale, American Government, 64). On May 10, 1776 a resolution was proposed for the “Formation of Local Governments”—one whose preamble by John Adams was seen as directly “manufacturing independence” (Smith, 256). The importance of both the federal Constitution and state constitutions is strikingly evident in Constitutional Law, the first series devoted to fully documenting AmericaÂ’s ongoing constitutional revolution. Herein are printings of the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, the federal Constitution, and constitutions of 23 states—documents that “rested on a new foundation, adjusted to a new political system” (Hinsdale, 66). Significantly these state constitutions, where the initial article after the preamble is often a declaration of rights, are “‘a mine of instruction for the natural history of democratic communitiesÂ… The differences between state constitutions and the federal ConstitutionÂ… raise intriguing questions that go to the heart of American constitutionalism” (Tarr, Understanding State Constitutions, 4, 11). This volume contains the pre-revolutionary Charter of Rhode Island, the 1776 constitutions of Maryland, New Jersey, North Carolina and Virginia, the Constitution of New York (1777) and the 1780 Constitution of Massachusetts, which was authored by John Adams and remains “one of the great enduring documents of the American RevolutionÂ… the oldest functioning written constitution in the world” (McCullough, 225). Also within are the 1790 constitutions of Pennsylvania and South Carolina, those of Delaware, Kentucky and New Hampshire in 1792, of Vermont in 1793 and Tennessee in 1796, of Georgia (1798), Ohio (1802), Louisiana (1812), Indiana (1816), Mississippi (1817), Illinois (1818), Connecticut (1818), Alabama (1819) and Maine (1820). Preceded by the 1819 edition with 21 state constitutions, this first expanded edition is the first to contain the “new 1819 Alabama constitution, and the new 1820 Maine constitution” (Matyas). Also featuring an appendix containing federal and state amendments enacted from 1808-16. Published by the “strong journalistic team” of Gales and Seaton, noted publishers of the National Intelligencer, “a leading American newspaper,” and of a major record of congressional proceedings (Mott, 178). Sabin 16133. Shoemaker 856. Matyas 19-02b. Cohen 3014. See Shaw & Shoemaker 47716. OCLC lists 29 copies; including the Library of Congress, American Antiquarian Society, British Library, Yale and Cambridge. Bookplates.Interior with light scattered foxing, slight soiling to boards, chips to spine ends. An extremely good copy of this important constitutional volume, most scarce in original boards.

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

      London: John Murray, 1820 - Octavo (212 × 125 mm). Bound in contemporary full sprinkled calf, spine in elaborately gilt-tooled compartments with a new black morocco label, speckled edges. Contemporary bookseller's ticket and ownership inscription, with occasional neat pencil annotations to the text. Spine and corners rubbed, joints repaired, a few light scratches to covers, some light spotting throughout. A very good copy in a contemporary binding. 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). From the library of Abel E. Berland, with his bookplate. Goldsmiths' 22767; Kress C.577. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Liberotti Impronte

      1820. (ART) LIBEROTTI, Giovanni. Liberotti Impronte, Opera Scelte. [Rome: Incisore di Camei Roma], circa 1820. Three double-sided clamshell boxes opening as books, containing 96 miniature plaster medallions in relief. Octavo, contemporary three-quarter vellum, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, red morocco spine labels, marbled sides and speckled edges. $2600.Beautiful collection of 96 miniature plaster medallions in three volumes by master carver Giovanni Liberotti, depicting famous works of art, both ancient and modern, in the collections of the Vatican, the Capitoline Museum, the Farnese Gallery, Palazzo Barberini, Villa Borghese, and other private collections in Rome, Florence, Naples, Milan, Paris, Dresden and Copenhagen. Mounted and captioned in three contemporary boxes bound as books, they comprise “a minutely detailed cabinet of neoclassical knowledge and art.”When the opportunity to take the “Grand Tour” spread from the aristocracy to the new industrial and professional elites, tourist destinations such as Rome shifted their attention from the privileged class to meeting the travel needs of the monied middle-class, including a healthy souvenir trade. Souvenir engravings of tourist attractions began to appear everywhere. In addition to albums of engraved views, “the Grand Tour offered another very popular type of travel souvenir, the now nearly forgotten cameosÂ… The taste for these engraved antique gems was revived as part of the classical revival and later reproduced as miniature plaster castsÂ… Mounted in faux book bindings, these plaster cameos [provided] a minutely detailed cabinet of neoclassical knowledge and art” (Princeton University). This wonderful “cabinet” of 96 souvenir plaster medallions depicts famous works of art, from classical sculpture and portrait busts, to Renaissance paintings, to the works of neoclassicists Canova, Thorvaldsen and Gibson. Representative masterpieces include da VinciÂ’s “Last Supper,” BerniniÂ’s “Apollo and Daphne,” and TitianÂ’s “Flora.” Giovanni Liberotti promoted himself as a “Carver of Cameos and Purveyor of Gems Ancient and Modern.” The Italian word “impronte” on the spines of the boxes (meaning “stamp” or “impression”), refers specifically to plaster casts, as opposed to enamel relief medallions or actual shell cameos. They measure from 3/4 to 2-1/2 inches across. Mounted to the front and rear pastedowns are numbered keys in contemporary Italian manuscript, identifying each of the works. A rare and unusual set in nearly fine condition, with only a few tiny dust spots to medallions and minor rubbing to boxes.

        Picturesque Tour Along the Rhine

      1820. First Edition . (ACKERMANN, Rudolph) GERNING, Baron Johann Isaac von. A Picturesque Tour Along the Rhine, from Mentz to Cologne. London: R. Ackermann, 1820. Folio (11-1/2 by 13-1/2 inches), 20th-century full tan polished calf, raised bands, red morocco spine label. $11,000.First edition, first issue, of one of Ackermann’s wonderful Picturesque Tours, beautifully illustrated with 24 hand-colored folio aquatints and large folding map. A lovely copy.In the history of book production ""there is no more attractive figure than that of Rudolph Ackermann, through whose extraordinary enterprise and spirit of adventure, aquatint was successfully applied to the illustration of books"" (Prideaux, 120-23). One of Ackermann's most lucrative projects was his remarkable Picturesque Tours, a series of seven books produced between 1820-28. This is his Tour Along the Rhine, with beautifully hand-colored aquatints by Daniel Havell and Thomas Sutherland after paintings by Christian Georg Schutz, depicting views of Mentz, the Castle of Furstenberg, the Church of Johannes, Pfalz Castle and the town of Kaub, the salmon fishery at Lurley, Coblentz, Bornhofen, Cologne and other sites along the river. The plates were pulled and hand-colored in the Ackermann studio, whose reputation for producing splendid illustrated publications and disseminating fine aquatint prints spanned over two centuries. The folding map shows the course of the Rhine from Mentz to Cologne. With accompanying text by Baron von Gerning describing the history and culture of the area (first published in German in 1819, without illustrations). First issue, without plate numbers in the top right corners. Tooley notes that plates 2 and 3 have variants dated either September or October; Abbey argues persuasively that to call either state an issue ""must remain doubtful,"" particularly given that large-paper copies have also been seen with the two plates dated October. At any rate, the quality of plates in either state are the same high standard; Abbey notes that ""there are definitely some later issues of the book, and these can be recognized by having plate numbers at the top right-hand corner. The impressions in these plates are poor and the coloring less good"" (Abbey 217). This copy has plates 2 and 3 dated October, but most importantly none of the plates bear numbers in the upper right. Text watermarked 1817 and 1818; plates watermarked 1818 and 1819. Abbey, Travel 217. Prideaux, 337. Tooley 234. Title page neatly rehinged, plates fine and fresh, hand-coloring vivid; a few minor scuffs to binding. An excellent, attractive copy of this beautifully illustrated work.

        VEDUTE DI ROMA [binder's (spine) title]

      Unknown place: Agapito Franzetti, 1820. 130 engravings on 65 sheets. Each sheet (page) meausures 113mm x 140mm. No title page (if issued). No date of publication is listed, circa 1820. Original 3/4 leather binding with moderate shelfwear, spine worn with minor loss to extremities, but intact and attractive. Mottled decorative paper sheets cover the boards, and the pastedowns are marbled. Many of the plates are loose, and several pages are lightly to moderately stained. The engravings are strong and clean impressions, showing views of buildings of ancient and modern construction. Most of the engravings are signed in the plate either "A. Franzetti" or "A. F." Many of the plates are titled and show similar views to many by Piranesi, though they are not identical. If this is a pocket version of Piranesi's "Vedute de Roma" it is either lacking 5 images, or it was issued with 130 images instead of 135. Bibliographic information on this publication is elusive. Included is a circa 1950 French protective slipcase, decorated with marbled paper. From the library of Paul Mac Alister. Plates include Basilica de S. Pietro in Vaticano, Monte Cavallo, Piazza del Popolo, Basilica di S. Sebastiano fuori le mura, Basilica di S. Lorenzo fuori le mura, Porto di Ripagrande, Ponte Molle, Chiesa de S.

        RELAZIONE della Morte di Giacomo e Beatrice Cenci, e Fratelli, e di Lucrezia Petroni Cenci Loro Matregna Parricidi, ed Uccison del Sig. Francesco Cenci seguito in Roma li 11 Settembre 1599, nel Pontificato di Clemente VIII.

      S.l.n.d. (c. 1820). - MANUSCRIT in-4. portrait. 25ff. Cartonnage souple ancien (petit défaut à la coiffe supérieure). Copie manuscrite vers 1820, d'un célèbre récit italien du XVIIe siècle sur la tragédie de Béatrix Cenci et de ses fères, qui furent accusés de parricide sur fonds d'inceste, et condamnés à mort. "La tragédie de la famille Cenci, qui fut l'une des plus passionnantes chroniques judiciaires du XVIe siècle, avec son fonds de violence et de passion, exerça un grand attrait sur les poètes, les peintres et les historiens: l'héroïne, la belle Béatrice, fut, à l'époque romantique, l'objet de plusieurs tragédies et romans" (Laffont Bompiani). Rédigée dans la première moitié du 17e siècle, cette relation resta longtemps inédite et ne sortit de l'ombre qu'au début du 19e siècle lorsque les Romantiques la découvrirent. C'est ce texte, initialement diffusé sous forme de manuscrits comme celui-ci, qui fut à l'origine de l'engouement général pour la tragédie des Cenci en servant de source d'inspiration aux premiers écrivains qui abordèrent le sujet, comme Mary Shelley, Custine, Stendhal et Fortia d'Urban. Plus tard, Beatrix fut également le sujet de pièces de théâtre (dont une d'Antonin Artaud), d'opéras et de films. Exemplaire illustré d'une gravure sur cuivre de Pietro Bettelini (1763-1828) représentant Béatrice Cenci, d'après le fameux portrait du peintre bolognais Guido Reni (1575-1642). Marge supérieure du titre découpée, probablement pour supprimer en envoi ou une marque de provenance. Bon exemplaire, exécuté d'une écriture très lisible et recouvert d'un joli cartonnage souple en papier décoré. Cf. Laffont Bompiani, II, p. 347. Cf. Anna Maria Rubino, Alla ricerca di Astolphe de Custine, p. 116. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Journals of Two Expeditions into the Interior of New South Wales, Undertaken by Order of the British Government in the Years 1817-18

      London: John Murray 1820 - London: John Murray, 1820. First Edition. Quarto - 27.8cm., [xv], (1 - Errata), 408pp. including Appendix, Index. with three folding engraved and publisher’s linen backed maps or charts, two folding tables, a folding engraved plate and five aquatints, two with original hand-colouring; a most attractive copy bound in modern gilt ruled polished 3/4 calf and linen boards, spine with full gilt-decoration and marbled end leaves, top page edges gilt. Some light intermittent foxing as usual, otherwise a Fine and most desirable copy. Scarce. A very important Australian book, being the only inland exploration work published in quarto, and reputedly only 500 copies produced. John Oxley held a significant place in the early history of the Colony contributing to the exploration of the New England districts of New South Wales, as well as the discovery of the Brisbane River. Oxley’s first journey was made beyond the Blue Mountains, up and around the Lachlan River. Vast swamps compelled him to return when less than two days’ journey from the Murrumbidgee River. In his second journey, made the following year, Oxley led a party down the Marquarie River. He found the land very swampy, the party took a detour and discovered the Castlereagh River. The party then struck N.E. and East across the Warrumbungle Ranges and the Liverpool Plains, crossed the Dividing Range and reached the coast at Port Macquarie. The finely-drawn maps and aquatints include views drawn by Major James Taylor from sketches by Evans, second in command and the deputy surveyor, and the striking portrait "A Native Chief of Bathurst", prepared after a drawing by John Lewin, and one of very few known Aboriginal subjects by Australia's first professional artist. WITH: Loosely inserted are 2 original hand-written letters fully signed “J. Oxley” to his wife Emma, written at Sydney Town to Kirkham, Oxley’s farm at the Cowpastures, dated 26 February (1824). The second letter is not dated but of a similar period. The letters are interesting and refer to W. Marsden and Mr. Cordeaux (Governor Macquarie’s land commissioner). Oxley had married Emma Norton in 1821 at St. Phillip’s Church, but died in 1828 aged only 42. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Brockhaus: Allgemeine deutsche Real-Encyclopädie für die gebildeten Stände (Conversations-Lexicon). In zehn (10) Bänden. Fünfte Original-Auflage (5. Auflage), 10 Bände, Halbleder-Ausgabe (1820).

      Leipzig, F. A. Brockhaus, 1820 Völlig umgearbeitete Auflage in 10 Bänden im Umfang von ca. 10.000 Seiten. Vollständiges Grundwerk in 10 Bänden. Braune Original-Halblederbände mit goldgepägten Rückentiteln auf rotem und grünem Rückenschild sowie goldgeprägten Ornamentbändern an Rückenschildern und Kapitalen; Buchdeckel in mehrfarbiger bräunlicher Marmorierung und mit Lederecken; dreiseitiger Rotschnitt. Von 1817 an vorbereitete, neu konzipierte Auflage. \"Diese Auflage war wieder eine völlig umgearbeitete und hatte besonders dadurch gewonnen, daß jedes wichtigere Fach einem hervorragenden Mitarbeiter zur einheitlichen Durcharbeitung übergeben worden war\", heißt es retrospektiv in der Brockhaus-Firmengeschichte (Die Firma F. A. Brockhaus. 1805 - 1905, S. 31). Da die Neuauflage nach Ansicht des Verlages selbst die \"aufgeregte politische Stimmung des Jahres 1819 verraten\" habe (zit. nach: Seemann, S. 71), drohte zeitweilig ein Totalverbot in Preußen. Dieses konnte zwar verhindert werden (eine Verbots-Mitteilung Berliner Buchhändler auf der Buchmesse erwies sich als voreilig), gleichwohl wurde alle publizistischen Aktivitäten des Verlages von den preußischen Zensurbehörden mißtrauisch beäugt. In Österreich wurde die Herausgabe der beiden letzten Grundwerksbände 9 und 10 tatsächlich untersagt, was die österreichischen Sortimenter gegenüber ihren Subskribenten in Verlegenheit brachte. Alle Bände mit Artikel-Verzeichnis. Bd. 1 ferner mit Literarischem Bericht im Anhang. Die Bände in sehr gutem Zustand. Leder in bemerkenswert frischer Erhaltung, weder berieben noch bestoßen (lediglich Buchrücken des 3. Bandes mit kleiner, unauffälliger Stoßstelle); auch die an sich empfindlichen Deckelbezüge hier mit allenfalls sehr leichten Bereibungsspuren; Ecken kaum bestoßen. Seitenränder partiell leicht fleckig, Druckhintergründe partiell etwas gebräunt. Bei Band 3 wenige Blatt am Fuß etwas knapper beschnitten; untere Seitenränder dieses Bandes partiell mit einem Fleck. In toto sehr gutes, gepflegtes Exemplar, wie es von dieser frühen Brockhaus-Auflage nur noch sehr selten anzutreffen sein dürfte.

        An Exact Representation of the Coronation . at Westminster' and of 'The Coronation Dinner in Westminster Hall', (1738-1820, King of Great Britain) and his Queen CHARLOTTE (1744-1818, née Princess of Mecklenburg-Strelitz)]

      1820 - 2 hand-coloured woodcuts, copied from the illustrations in The Universal Magazine for October and November 1761, the first, taken as the Archbishop of Canterbury places the Crown on the King's head, is lettered with explanations of the crowded scene, including at (h) 'The Dukes of Normandie and Acquitain and other great officers', the second, similarly explained, shows the King's Champion, flanked by the Earl Marshal and Lord High Constable, riding up the centre between the long tables, watched by the diners and the others present in the galleries, printed within a 'Greek Key' border, both referring to 22nd September 1761, laid down on two separate album leaves 10" x 7¾", with other items on the versos, the two prints no date, circa edges worn and border trimmed in places without loss to text or image The original articles of 1761 explain the role at the Dinner of the King's Champion, who challenged any one to assert that George III was not their lawful sovereign, and the 'Dukes of Normandy and Aquitaine' at the Coronation. The French King had anciently a council of twelve great Peers, 6 lay and 6 ecclesiastic. Long after the council ceased to function the ecclesiastics attended at Reims, but the lay peerages had became vested in the crown. So the King appointed people to represent his lay peerages. Henry II liked this idea, which was last used in 1761, given that in 1801 Great Britain renounced all claims to France and the use of the lilies on her coat of arms. On the versos are (1) a pleasing engraving of Bouverie Hall, Chart next Sutton Valence, Kent, and (2) a number of cuttings including temperance verses and the monument to Captain Charles Colby, of the 98th Dragoons, killed by a tiger at 'Rawal Pinde', 27th March 1852.
