        Thebes. Byban el Molouk. Statues et Fragmens de Granit Noir et de Granit Rouge Trouves dans les Tombeaux des Rois a L'Ouest, Couvercles de Vases Trouves dans les Hypogees.

      Paris. Panckouke. Ca. 1820. Copper plate engraving (uncolored), image approx. 17 x 23 inches on sheet approximately 21 x 28 inches. Very good condition: 1/2 inch tear to mid upper edge and soft crease to upper right corner (both well outside image area), light scattered foxing (mainly in outer margins). Publisher's blindstamp at top right. This very large, finely engraved image is plate 81 from Volume II of the Antiquities section of the monumental publication "Description de L'Egypte," which documented the research of the "savants" who accompanied Napoleon Bonaparte's ambitious expedition to Egypt (1798-1801). The full title, translated into English reads "Description of Egypt, or the collection of observations and research made in Egypt during the Expedition of the French Army" hinting at the varied purposes of this foray into the Middle East. The European demand for information about Egypt and its glorious monuments led to the publication of two editions of the work, with engravings pulled from the same printing plates; this is from the second edition, uncolored as issued. Shown are red and black granite statues and fragments, including ushabtis (funerary figurines) and covers for canopic jars; the quality of the engraving powerfully evokes the splendor of these beautiful carvings.

        Suite du mémoire sur les intégrales définies.

      First edition Paris: l'Imprimerie Royal, 1820. An important contribution to the foundation of complex function theory. In this paper Possion was the first to carry out integration along a path in the complex plane. "Poisson noted in 1815 and discussed in [this paper] the use of integrals of complex functions taken over paths in the complex plane. As an example he gives ?dx/x from -1 to 1. Here he sets x=ei?, where ? runs from (2n 1)? to 0, and obtaines, by treating the integral as a limit of a sum, the value -(2n 1)?i. Then he notes that the value of an integral need not be the same when taken over an imaginary path as when over a real path. He gives the example ?(cos ax)/(b2 x2) dx from -? to ?, where a and b are positive constants. He lets x = t ik, where k is constant and positive, and obtaines the value & Five memoires in: Journal de l'École Royale Polytechnique, vol. 11. pp. 1-188; 295-341; 342-410; 411-416; 417-489.

        Système analytique des connaissances positives de l'homme: restreintes à celles qui proviennent directement ou indirectement de l'observation.

      Paris: L'auteur & A. Belin, February 1820. First edition, very rare, of Lamarck's last book, important for containing his final thoughts on evolution. In this work Lamarck renounces the linear progression theory of species change propounded in his Philosophie Zoologique (1809) in favour of a branching tree theory much closer to that associated with Darwin some four decades later. "Unwilling to endorse the idea that fossils represented species that had all become extinct as the result of a global catastrophe, he concluded that the forms had changed over time. Having once concluded that species are mutable, he then called upon the familiar idea of the inheritance of acquired characters to explain the close relation between habits and forms that, especially in the case of birds, had been a staple of naturalists' commentaries for decades ... He invoked what he called the "power of life" or "the cause which tends to make organization increasingly complex" to account for the general, linear series that in his view best represented how the different animal classes were related to each other ... [Stephen Jay] Gould describes how Lamarck's decision to make separate classes of the annelid and parasitic worms led him over time to give up his original commitment to a linear arrangement of the different animal classes and to adopt a truly branching scheme instead. Gould indicates that in the very last of his publications [the offered work] Lamarck reversed his decades-long belief that the "power of life" was greater than the influence of environmental circumstances, admitting to the contrary that the force of circumstances was ultimately stronger than nature herself ... Giving up his linear arrangement of living things for a strongly branching view of life's development, and acknowledging that the influence of the environment had had a greater role in evolution than the "cause which makes organization increasingly complex," Lamarck showed his willingness to let the evidence of natural history be the final arbiter in determining the complex path nature had traced, over time, in bringing all the different forms of life into existence" (Burkhardt in DSB). KVK lists only nine copies (three each in France, Germany and UK). "Following his last and greatest treatise on the anatomy of invertebrate organisms, Lamarck published only one other major work ? Analytic System of Positive Knowledge About Man (1820). This rare book has not been consulted by previous historians who traced the development of Lamarck's changing views on the classification of animals. Thus, traditional accounts stop at Lamarck's 1815 revision, with its fundamental distinction between two separate lineages of spontaneous generation. The impression therefore persists that Lamarck never fully embraced the branching model, later exemplified by Darwin as the "tree of life" ? with a common trunk of origin for all creatures and no main line of growth thereafter. Lamarck had compromised his original ladder of progress by advocating two separate origins, but he could continue to stress linearity in each of the resulting series. "But his 1820 book, although primarily a treatise on psychology, does include a chapter on the classification of animals ? and I discovered, in reading these pages, that Lamarck did pursue his revisionary path further, and did finally arrive at a truly branching model for a tree of life. Moreover, in a remarkable passage, Lamarck also recognizes the philosophical implications of his full switch by acknowledging a reversal in his ranking of natural forces in one of the most interesting (and honorable) intellectual conversions that I have ever read. "Lamarck still talks about forces of progress and forces of branching, and he does argue that progress will proceed along each branch. But branching has triumphed as a primary and controlling theme, and Lamarck now frames his entire discussion of animal taxonomy by emphasizing successive points of division. For example, consider this epitome of vertebrate evolution: 'Reptiles come necessarily after fishes. They build a branching sequence, with one branch leading from turtles to platypuses to the diverse group of birds, while the other seems to direct itself, via lizards, toward the mammals. The birds then . . .build a richly varied branching series, with one branch ending in birds of prey.' (In previous models, Lamarck had viewed birds of prey as the top rung of a single avian ladder.) "But much more radically, his 1815 model based on two lines of spontaneous generation has now disappeared. In its place, Lamarck advocates the same tree of life that would later become conventional through the influence of Darwin and other early evolutionists. Lamarck now proposes a single common ancestor for all animals, called a monad. From this beginning, infusorians evolve, followed by polyps, arising "directly and almost without a gap." But polyps then branch to build the rest of life's tree: "instead of continuing as a single series, the polyps appear to divide themselves into three branches ? the radiates, which end without evolving any further; the worms, which continue to branch into all phyla of segmented animals, including annelids, insects, arachnids, crustaceans, and barnacles, each by a separate event of division; and the tunicates (now regarded as marine organisms closely related to vertebrates), which later split to form several lines of mollusks and vertebrates. "Lamarck then acknowledges the profound philosophical revision implied by a branching model for nature's fundamental order. He had always viewed the linear force of progress as primary. As late as 1815, even after he had changed his model to permit extensive branching and two environmentally induced sequences of spontaneous generation, Lamarck continued to emphasize the primary power of the linear force, compared with disturbing and anomalous exceptions produced by lateral environmental causes, called l'influence des circonstances. To [state] the key passage: 'The plan followed by nature in producing animals clearly comprises a predominant prime cause. This endows animal life with the power to make organization gradually more complex . . . Occasionally a foreign, accidental, and therefore variable cause has interfered with the execution of the plan . . . [producing] branches that depart from the series in several points and alter its simplicity.' "But Lamarck, five years later in his final book of 1820, now abandons this controlling concept of his career, and embraces the opposite conclusion. The influence of circumstances (leading to a branching model of animal taxonomy) rules the paths of evolution. All general laws, of progress or anything else, must be regarded as subservient to the immediate singularities of environments and histories. The influence of circumstances has risen from a disturbing and peripheral joker to the true lord of all (with an empire to boot): 'Let us consider the most influential cause for everything done by nature, the only cause that can lead to an understanding of every- thing that nature produces. ...This is, in effect, a cause whose power is absolute, superior even to nature, since it regulates all nature's acts, a cause whose empire embraces all parts of nature's domain . . .This cause resides in the power that circumstances have to modify all operations of nature, to force nature to change continually the laws that she would have followed without [the intervention of] these circumstances, and to determine the character of each of her products. The extreme diversity of nature's productions must also be attributed to this cause. "Lamarck's great intellectual journey began with a public address about evolution, delivered in 1800 during a month that the revolutionary government had auspiciously named Floréal, or flowering. He then developed the first comprehensive theory of evolution in modern science-an achievement that won him a secure place in any scientific hall of fame or list of immortals-despite the vicissitudes of his reputation during his own lifetime and immediately thereafter. "But Lamarck's original system failed ? and not for the reasons that we usually specify today in false hindsight (the triumph of Mendelism over Lamarck's erroneous belief in inheritance of acquired characters), but by inconsistencies that new information imposed upon the central logic of Lamarck's system during his own lifetime. We can identify a fulcrum, a key moment, in the unraveling of Lamarck's original theory ? when he attended a lecture by Cuvier on the anatomy of annelids, and recognized that he would have to split his taxonomic class of worms into two distinct groups. This recognition ? which Lamarck recorded with excitement (and original art) as a handwritten insertion into his first published book on evolution ? unleashed a growing cascade of consequences that, by Lamarck's last book of 1820, had destroyed his original theory of primary ladders of progress versus subsidiary lateral deviations, and led him to embrace the opposite model (in both geometry of animal classification, and basic philosophy of nature) of a branching tree of life" (Stephen Jay Gould, The Lying Stones of Marrakech, pp. 139-142). 8vo (196 x 128 mm), contemporary orange glazed boards, front hinge with crack and som echipping, capitals slightly worn, pp. [2], 364, first few leaves with light spotting, 5th leaf with faint private stamp.

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

      London: James Ridgway, 1820. Octavo, Aquarius binding of full navy calf, gilt spine. 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.'. Fine condition.

        Il Botanico coltivatore. Opera di G.L.M. du Mont de Courset recata in Italiano dall'ab Girlamo Romano.

      Padova: Tipografia e Fonderia, 1819-, 1820. 12 volumes, octavo, a fresh fine set in the original printed blue paper wrappers, some wear at spines and evidence of earlier tape repairs, early Milanese bookseller's advertisement to front, very good. A most appealing set of the uncommon Italian translation of Dumont de Courset's important work of botanical instruction. The existence of an Italian edition is firm evidence of the centrality of Le Botaniste Cultivateur in European practice, and shows clearly the enduring impact of the Parisian gardens, notably Malmaison and Dumont de Courset's own garden at Boulogne-sur-Mer.This Italian edition is based on the revised second French edition of 1811, devised so as to provide a more detailed overview of the "plante straniere naturalizzate ed indigene coltivate in Francia, in Austria, in Italia, ed in Inghilterra." The notice of exotics is of course particularly significant, not least those from "Nuova Olanda". There had been an earlier German edition based on the first edition of 1802-1805, but this Italian edition is the only contemporary edition of the complete and revised work.

        Principles of political economy : considered with a view to their practical application

      First Edition London John Murray, Albermarle-Street 1820 First edition, with the rare 4-page publisher's catalog, dated April 1820, tipped in at the front. 8vo: vi, 601, [1]pp. "London: Printed by C. Roworth, Bell-yard, Temple-bar." on the colophon and title-page verso, as called for. Bound in the original publisher's drab blue paper-covered boards, uncut and largely unopened, with brown paper spine and remnants of the original printed label still legible. Internally, fresh and bright with only occasionally spotting, the original spine largely perished but restored sensitively by an expert conservationist, the boards somewhat stained and bumped but thoroughly original, the hinges reinforced. Provenance: small owner's book label, probably contemporary, partly effaced, reading T ? Cobb. Preserved in an attractive clamshell case with a leather spine label gilt. An unsophisticated copy of a truly rare, important, and desirable book, a cornerstone of economic thought and a major influence on other scientific endeavors, including the principles of evolution developed by Charles Darwin and Alfred Russell Wallace. OCLC Number: 2007966.The title of Malthus's final major work is "something of a misnomer, as the book was conceived as a series of tracts rather than a comprehensive and systematic treatise. . . . The Principles had only a limited impact at the time, and was severely criticized by J. R. McCulloch and [David] 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)

Durch seine Brüder Jacob und Wilhelm Grimm wurde er mit Clemens Brentano (1778-1842) und Achim von Arnim (1781-1831) bekannt, mit denen er zusammenarbeitete. Wohl 1807 lernte Grimm Bettine Brentano (1785-1859) kennen, von der er zahlreiche Porträts anfertigte. In November 1808 zog er nach Landshut zu Brentano und dessen Schwager Friedrich Carl von Savigny (1779-1861). Auf ihre Vermittlung ging er nach München und erlernte Kupferstechen bei Carl Ernst Christoph Heß (1755-1828). Zugleich studierte er an der Münchner Akademie unter Andreas Seidl (1760-1834). Unterbrechung des Studiums 1814 durch Teilnahme an den Freiheitskriegen. Mit Georg Brentano reiste er im Frühjahr 1816 nach Italien, wo er zwei Monate blieb. 1817 kehrte er nach Kassel zurück. 1824 reiste Grimm zum ersten Mal nach Willingshausen und wurde zum Mitbegründer der Willingshäuser Malerkolonie, eine der ersten Malerkolonien Deutschlands. 1832 wurde er an die Kasseler Kunstakademie als Lehrer berufen.

      [c.1820] Image 19 x 16.5cm; the background varnished, with sl. crazing in places. In a handsome contemporary gilt frame, glazed, approx. 31.5 x 28cm, 4.5cm deep. The frame is a little rubbed, with chipping & repair to small section of ornamentation, upper left corner.Commissioned by Clare's publisher John Taylor in 1820, the original oil painting prompted a contemporary art critic to exclaim "What life in the eyes! What ardent thirst for excellence, and what susceptibility to the outward expression in the quivering lips". This smaller version shows a more romanticised version of the poet than is depicted in the original, having a gentler, slimmer, and less ruddy face.

Striking original drawing by Louis de Freycinet's expedition artist, Jacques Arago. It is signed and dated lower right, and there is the customary Arago line border in pen. Arago's date of 1820 and the latitude and longitude that he includes in his caption identify that the flying fish was drawn mid-Atlantic, as the French explorers made their way back to France from their final call into Rio. The expedition's official instructions included scientific desiderata: the artists and scientists were under very specific orders to identify, record and illustrate natural history discoveries. The specimens that they collected on this voyage were extensive and forty-five of the birds (among which were three new genera), more than thirty reptiles and perhaps one hundred and twenty fish were entirely new to science. A reference to the official published work ("Voyage de l'Uranie, Poissons, pl. 26") appears to the right of the drawing: the scientific atlases that form part of the official account of the Uranie voyage are splendid. Jacques Arago (1790-1855) joined the Freycinet expedition on the Uranie in 1817 and was not only the most accomplished of the artists who made the voyage, but was one of the most intriguing of all the early voyagers. The wonders of the long expedition from 1817-1820 stayed with him for the rest of his life, and he continued writing and drawing about the Pacific right up until he lost his sight. In 1822 he published his own well-regarded account of the voyage, "Promenade Autour du Monde" which was translated into English and published in 1823. Over the ensuing decades he created different versions of this interesting account. In February 1820 as they entered the southern Atlantic the ship hit an uncharted reef and was seriously damaged. The naturalists lost vast amounts of their collections; the expedition members survived by foraging around their temporary Falklands base (there were plenty of wild rabbits) while they awaited rescue. The Mercury, their American rescue vessel was subsequently purchased by Freycinet and by May in Montevideo the ship had been renamed the Physicienne. It was aboard this ship that Arago drew the flying fish, showing his perseverance in collecting and illustrating natural history even after the disaster in the Falklands.Provenance: until the 1960s in Freycinet family ownership, subsequently in a private collection. Old fold to one side, but in fine original condition.

        Rare handbill advertising the sale of skull skulls.

      [Edinburgh]: circa, 1820. Printed handbill, 11 x 14 cm., untrimmed; very good. Rare handbill or advertisement for the firm of Luke O'Neil, announcing that the Edinburgh-based statuary company "respectfully begs leave to intimate to the public, that he supplies correct casts of the human head, indicating the situation of the organs of the different faculties, at the following prices: in stucco, 3s; in bronze, or terracota, 5s. (2s. additional for a packing box)".This is an intriguing insight into the development of popular phrenology, not least because O'Neil later offered casts of the skulls of at least three different Australian Aborigines, most significantly that of Carnambaygal, who had openly resisted the European. In April 1816 a group including Carnambaygal was ambushed and killed by a detachment of the 46th Regiment under the command of Major James Wallis, and his head harvested by Lieutenant Parker, who forwarded it to Hill who in turn sent it to Edinburgh. At the time of the publication of this work the skull was in the charge of Sir George Mackenzie of the Edinburgh Phrenological Society.The handbill concludes with the following offer "A printed Index of the Organs may be had separately, price 6d." a few marks.

        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, Hartford 1820 - Two volumes, complete. 573 pp.; 595 pp Quarto. later full brown calf, burgundy gilt lettered spine labels. The books were owned by Rev. Herman Landon Vail (1790-1870), each volume signed by him. Cotton Mather, FRS (February 12, 1663ÊÐ 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 historyÑlinking, 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."].

        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

      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. Covers rubbed, front joint professionally repaired; some foxing and darkening to contents, bookplate, else very good.

        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. Half-Calf. Near Fine+. 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. 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'?a poetic detailing of the natural world which had already come to be seen as Clare?s particular strength."

Schöne Ansicht des berühmten Gasteiner Wasserfalls um 1820, ausgeführt von einem unbekannten Künstler, der seinen Namen undeutlich mit "Johann Hiß[...]" ("Ziß[...]"?) signiert. Ebenfalls aus dem Gebiet der Hohen Tauern stammt dessen zweite, gleichartig gerahmte Arbeit, eine Ansicht der Leiterbachfalls unterhalb der Pasterze mit figürlicher Staffage. - Stellenweise etwas berieben, insgesamt jedoch wohlerhalten. Hübsche, seltene Dilettantenarbeit; Dokumente der Wasserfallromantik des frühen 19. Jahrhunderts.
