        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

      Silas Andrus, 1820. Two volumes, complete. 573 pp.; 595 pp Quarto later full brown calf, burgundy gilt lettered spine labels 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 Some rubbing and scuffing of covers, browning and some foxing throughout, top of title page excised, albeit a nice copy The books were owned by Rev. Herman Landon Vail (1790-1870), each volume signed by him [Sabin 46393. Howes M391 "Most famous 18th century American book."]

        Lamennais]. Le Défenseur. Journal religieux, politique et littéraire.

      chez H. Nicolle 1820-1821, A Paris - 6, demi-basane racinée, dos lisse orné, pièces de titre en basane rouge et de tomaison en basane vert (reliure de l'époque). Collection complète. Journal favorable à la philosophie de Lamennais. Principaux collaborateurs : Bonald, Saint-Victor, Genoude, La Luzerne, Lamartine, et Charles Nodier qui signe 4 articles dans le tome I La France telle qu'elle est., De la loi des élections et de l'aristocratie, Lettre sur Paris, Des Couleurs nationales ; 2 articles dans le tome III, Saint-Michel, Etudes poétiques. ; 1 article dans le tome IV, L'Apocalypse du solitaire. A la suite de la disparition du Conservateur, « M. de Bonald réunit de nouveau ses efforts à ceux de M. de SaintVictor, le savant et spirituel auteur du Nouveau Tableau de Paris, pour continuer à soutenir, dans le Défenseur, les principes religieux et politiques qu'il avoit professés dans le Conservateur. Cette nouvelle publication périodique renfermoit peut-être des doctrines plus monarchiques, et plus constamment conformes aux principes de l'auteur de la Législation primitive ; mais l'attrait piquant d'une opposition ardente lui inanquoit, et le Défenseur n'eut qu'une assez courte existence. Quelque mérite qu'aient les publications politiques, c'est malheureusement l'opposition seule qui a le privilége de les faire vivre : c'est là un des maux de notre époque, et personne ne le sentoit plus profondément que le sage écrivain. Quoi qu'il en soit, le Défenseur, dans sa courte existence, remplit mieux sa mission que le journal qu'il avoit remplacé : il défendit mieux que le Conservateur ne conserva, et son titre plus modeste fut aussi plus facile à justifier » (H. de Bonald, Notice sur le vicomte de Bonald).

        Coptographische Groepon

      Wed. G. A. Diederichs en Zoon and Mindermann, Amsterdam 1820 - Four paper packets with thirty-six paper figures. The figures are cut from laid paper so that a lantern shining through the cut-out portions would project the image onto a wall or sheet. The largest packet, containing six sheets, was professionally produced and contains intricate, multi-figure images of chess players, musicians, a school master with his pupils, Don Quixote and Sancho Panza, dames at a tea table, and a noble family. The other three packets, containing twelve, twelve, and six figures respectively, look to have been homemade supplements to the original set. These additional figures are very finely done and include a variety of historic figures, such as Queen Elizabeth I, the prophet Muhammad, Diogenes, Homer, Minerva, the Apostles Paul and Peter, and King Francis I of France. The set also includes a few generic figures from different professions and ethnicities. Each is carefully numbered and labeled, and a handwritten list is included in each packet. Shadow theater, which has a long tradition in the East, did not gain popularity in Europe until the eighteenth century. This set of cut paper silhouettes is an extremely rare early example of this form of European entertainment. A very interesting and unique set, complete and in fine condition.

        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 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.

        Technical drawing of Whaling equipment.

      France: circa, 1820. Original drawing in ink on paper, 220 x 290 mm., ms. notations in ink and pencil; in fine condition, mounted. A finely-executed nineteenth-century technical drawing showing the tryworks and various implements involved in on-board whale processing. This drawing, with its various manuscript corrections, may have been a preliminary work for a French publication on whaling. It is drawn with the usual competence and finesse associated with French maritime art of this period.The upper section of the drawing shows different types of harpoon, lance, forks, ladles and strainers, and a sail-buoy used to mark whale carcasses. The lower section of the drawing shows the "tryworks" - the on-board furnace used for rendering whale blubber into oil. The tryworks was the most distinguishing feature of a whaleship, and consisted of two cast-iron trypots set into a brick furnace.At the time when this drawing was made, French whaling activity was mainly concentrated in the Pacific, where a formidable fleet operated even before any French colonies were established in the area.

Ampere's philosophy postulated "two levels of knowledge of the external world ... phenomena, presented to us directly through the senses, and noumena, the objective causes of phenomena" (DSB); this determined the form of his scientific discoveries, of which the most important were his discoveries in electrodynamics, beginning in the fall of 1820. Fascinated by Oersted's demonstration of the existence of electromagnetism, which had been reported by Francois Arago to an astonished Academie des Sciences on September 4, 1820, Ampere immediately set out to determine through his own experiments the exact relationship of electrical current-flow and magnetism. He read his first report to the Academie des Sciences on September 18, 1820. In the present paper, his "first great memoir on electrodynamics" (DSB), probably written soon after November 6, the latest session of the Academic that is mentioned, Ampere describes the series of "classical and simple" experiments with which he first explored the interaction of two electric currents and of electric currents with magnets as well as with the earth's magnetic field. "He demonstrated for the first time that two parallel conductors, carrying currents traveling in the same direction, attract each other; conversely, if the currents are traveling in opposite directions, they repel each other" (Sparrow, Milestones of Science, p. 33). His experiments provided empirical evidence for his new theory of magnetism as "electricity in motion." (DSB). Very Good.

      Printed by C. Baldwin for Baldwin, Cradock & Joy, London 1820 - The first edition in English of Oersted's magnum opus (pp. 273-276), preceded by a small Latin pamphlet (Experiemnta circa effectum conflictus electici in acum magneticum) also published in 1820. This work laid the foundation for the subsequent revolution in physics with the work of Michael Faraday following soon after and later Clerk Maxwell's theory of electromagnetic radiation. Within a few months of the original Latin publication, the paper was translated into several languages. Oersted himself realized the importance of an English translation as attested to by the note at the beginning of this paper: "Translated from a printed account drawn up in Latin by the author, and transmitted by him to the Editor of the Annals of Philosophy." ".[Oersted] had predicted the existence of the electro-magnetic effect as early as 1812 . He set out to deduce from the nature of electricity the conditions under which it was converted to magnetism, and to prove their existence by experiment . In the winter of 1819-1820, he placed a magnetic needle parallel to a current carrying wire and saw the needle was disturbed. Resuming the experiments the summer of 1820, Oersted ascertained that a circular magnetic field surrounded current carrying wire, and that a magnetic needle brought into this field would set itself tangent to the circle. Oersted's discovery opened up a new epoch in the history of physics." (Norman 1606). Octavo. The original marbled-paper covered boards have been expertly rebacked with a brown calf spine, which is accompanied by a green morocco spine label and elegant gilt stamping. Just a hint of foxing to the contents. The armorial bookplate of Henry Godfrey Godfrey Faussett Osborne appears on the front pastedown. The top edge is dust stained. Some general rubbing to the marbled paper; otherwise very good. Dibner 61; Printing and the Mind of Man 282. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Village Minstrel, and Other Poems. Volumes 1 & 2. [and] Poems Descriptive of Rural Life and Scenery

      London Printed for Taylor and Hessey, Fleet Street; and E. Drury, Stamford. [through 1821] 1820 Three volumes in one: First Edition of Village Minstrel (vols. 1 & 2); Second Edition of Poems. 12mo: xxviii,216; [8],211,[1]; viii,xxiv,220pp, with copper-engraved frontispiece portrait of John Clare by E. Scriven. Early half calf and marbled boards, flat spine in six compartments divided by double rules, black leather lettering piece gilt, marbled end paper, book plate of collector George Downing Hartley on front paste down. Light wear to extremities, previous owners' names on front fly leaf (dated 1948) and title page (1821); very occasional light spotting, else an excellent example, tight, clean and bright. Lowndes 466 (Regarding Poems: "An interesting little volume."). Hayward, p. 236. Near Fine+ ¶ Clare was the son of a farm laborer who came to be known for his celebratory representations of the English countryside and his lamentation of its disruption. His poetry underwent a major reevaluation in the late 20th century, and he is often now considered among the most important 19th-century poets. His "first volume of poetry, Poems Descriptive of Rural Life and Scenery (1820), was the most popular of the four volumes Clare published during his lifetime, going through four editions by 1821 and selling more than 3,500 copies by 1829 . . . [The collection] contains some seventy poems, organised under three headings: poems, songs and ballads, and sonnets. As the title suggests, the poems generally describe rural life but they do so from the perspective of the rural labourer; as such, they may be seen as part of a genre of anti-pastoral verse in Britain that attempted to provide a more faithful depiction of rural life than was found in 'traditional' pastorals. . . . The two-volume collection The Village Minstrel, and Other Poems (1821) was the Northamptonshire Peasant Poet's second publication. The collection is divided into two sections: 'Poems', which makes up the first volume and part of the second, comprises seventy-one poems of various forms, opening with the long, semi-autobiographical 'The Village Minstrel'; the second section, which ends the second volume, is made up of sixty sonnets. Like their predecessors, the poems in The Village Minstrel are broadly 'descriptive of rural life and scenery'. Clare presents vignettes of rural work and leisure, describing the daily life of the village ('Rural Morning' and 'Rural Evening'), its pastimes ('Rustic Fishing'), and important weekly and annual events in the village's calendar ('Sunday' and 'May Day'). These are supplemented by close observations of plants, animals and the effects of seasonal change on the landscape in poems like 'A Copse in Winter', 'Description of a Thunder-Storm', 'To an early Cowslip', and 'The Ants'

        The Genteel Recreation; or the Pleasure of Angling, A Poem. With a Dialogue betwen Piscatory and Corydon.

      Small 8vo., in full red morocco, boards with double gilt fillet and blind rules, central gilt rococco style cartouche of fish (from an known ornament for Thomas Gosden), spine with raised bands bordered in gilt and blind, lettered in gilt, gilt ruled turn-ins, all edges gilt. Printed thoughout on vellum. Second edition, after the very rare privately printed edition of 1700. Limited edition of "not more that 100 copies", this one of only 2 copies printed on vellum, with printed limitation thus on verso of title-page, and with an inserted sheet at the front with a manuscript note "Only two copies of this book printed on vellum expressly for Mr Simonds Higgs of Kensington and Mr T. Gosden of St. Martin's Lane" The appearance of the Gosden tool on the boards would suggest that this was the copy given to Thomas Gosden. However, in the sale catalogue for the library of noted bibliophile William Simonds Higgs (Sotheby's 1830), lot 58 comprised this work which sold for 3 guineas. Frustratingly the binding is not described but there is a note of a manuscript leaf that is identically worded to that in this copy. Each copy may have had matching manuscript leaves, or Gosden may have also bound Simonds Higg's copy. Whichever copy this is, it nonetheless is a real rarity, with a fine provenance coming from one of two important piscatorial libraries. The original 1700 edition is a noted rarity in the canon of fishing books, the last copy at auction fetching £20,000 in 2012.

        Essai Géologique sur l'Écosse

      1820. Seven folding lithographed plates & two folding maps (one hand-colored). x, [2], 519, [4] pp. 8vo, orig. pink wrappers (quite restored & rebacked), uncut. Paris: Courcier, [1820]. First edition of the earliest geological account of Scotland. While a student at the University of Edinburgh, Boué (1794-1881), became interested in geology through the influence of his teacher, the mineralogist Robert Jameson. Boué's rambles throughout Scotland allowed him to form his own conclusions as to the origin and age of the many igneous rocks of that country. This work contains much original information. "Boué "distinguished very exactly between basaltic sheets and dykes, and described the various volcanic rocks petrographically. Although a student of Jameson, he attached himself to Hutton's part in regard to the origin of basalt, phonolite, trachyte, porphyry, and granite."-Zittel, p. 270. A very good copy, entirely uncut, of a scarce book, preserved in a morocco-backed slipcase. ❧ D.S.B., II, pp. 341-42. Geikie, The Founders of Geology, p. 264-"In many respects this remarkable work was far in advance of its time, particularly in regard to the views expressed in it regarding the trappean rocks.".

        A Narrative of the Mission of the United Brethren among the Delaware and Mohegan Indians, From its Commencement in the year 1740 to the Close of the Year 1808

      Philadelphia: M'Carty & Davis, 1820. xii+[17]+429 page with engraved frontispiece portrait, errata leaf. Octavo (8 3/8" x 5 3/8") Bound in contemporary leather with gilt lettering to spine. (Field 678; Howes H392; Sabin 31205) First edition. John Heckewelder was born in Bedford, England and came to Pennsylvania in 1754. After finishing his education, he was apprenticed to a cooper. Following a visit to Ohio with Christian F. Post, a colonial agent, in 1762 he began temporary employment in the Moravian missions at Friedenshütten and Sheshequin, Pennsylvania. In 1771, he entered upon his actual career as an evangelist to the Indians, being appointed assistant to David Zeisberger, in Ohio, where he remained for fifteen years. In 1792, at the request of the Secretary of War, he accompanied Gen. Rufus Putnam to Post Vincennes to treat with the Indians. In 1793 he was again commissioned to assist at a treaty with the Indians of the lakes. In his book, Heckewelder explained the beliefs of the Delaware (Lenape), that the creator "made the Earth and all that it contains for the common good of mankind; when he stocked the country that he gave them with plenty of game, it was not for the benefit of a few, but of all; everything was given in common to the sons of men. Whatever liveth on the land, whatsoever groweth out of the Earth, and all that is in the rivers and waters was given jointly to all and everyone is entitled to his share. From this principle hospitality flows as from its source."[1] Between 1797 and 1800 he remained mainly in Ohio, and was for a time in the civil service, being a postmaster, a justice of the peace, and an associate justice of the court of common pleas. He settled at Gnadenhütten, Ohio, in 1801, and devoted himself to the duties of his agency. In 1810 he resigned and engaged in literary pursuits in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, until his death. Heckewelder studied the languages, manners, and customs of American Indians, particularly the Delawares. While a member of the American Philosophical Society, at Philadelphia, several of his contributions were published in their transactions. He also published Account of the History, Manners, and Customs of the Indian Nations who once inhabited Pennsylvania and the Neighboring States (Philadelphia, 1818; German translation, Göttingen, 1821; French translation, Paris. 1822); Narrative of the Mission of the United Brethren among the Delawares and Mohegan Indians (Philadelphia, 1820); and a collection of Names which the Lenni Lenape or Delaware Indians gave to Rivers, Streams, and Localities within the States of Pennsylvania. New Jersey, Maryland, and Virginia, with their Signification (1822). Many of his manuscripts are in the collections of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania.Condition:Ink name of Wm D Morgan to top of title page; inscription regards his ownership at top of p [17] (slightly shaved); old ink note regarding Morgan, and the book, laid in.

        18th c. Italian Gilt Paper.

      Italy, 18th century. A full, unused sheet measuring 15 1/2 x 13. Eight religious figures are printed in gilt on a blue pastepaper ground. In the top row, Joseph (with the Christ child) and Mary are flanked by Jesus and Ecce Homo. Saints Peter, Matthew, Simon, and Sebastian fill the bottom row. Each figure is shown with his traditional iconography. Each is framed by a different archway and border. Some rubbing or flaking of the gilt along the perimeter; but most of the images are quite bright. Matted. These beautiful papers were created in Germany and Italy throughout the 18th century, until about 1820. Earlier papers were used as book covers; later, their use extended to endpapers. The papers were printed either by wood blocks or by engraved metal rollers, which covered the paper with sizing or paste. Gold was dusted onto the size; and, when the size dried, superfluous gold was brushed off. For raised gold, the size was thickened with yellow ochre or red lead. Some were colored by daubing or stenciling after gilding. Full, unused sheets are rare.
