        Confessionale sive libellus modum confitendi pulcherrime co[m]plecte[n]s, necessarius atq[ue] utilis, & cuilibet recte confiteri vole[n]ti, & ipsis sacerdotibus, qui aliorum confessiones audire habe[n]t. Editus a celeberrimo academie Lovanien[sis]. ... Denuo ab eodem recognitus et castigatus anno mil. CCCCC. XIX. men. Junii. die. xxvii.(Colophon: Antwerp, Michiel Hillen van Hoochstraten, 8 July 1519). Small 8vo (14 x 10 cm). Title-page in red & black with a red woodcut rebus of the author's name at the foot. 17th-century(?) vellum with the vellum.

      Machiels R267; Netherlandish books 26872; Nijhoff & Kronenberg 1821; for Rosemondt: NNBW V, cols. 612-613. Rare third edition of an interesting Latin work on confession by the highly respected Louvain (moderate) inquisitor and professor of theology Godschalc Rosemont (1483-1526). He corresponded with Erasmus (cf. Allen Ep. 1153, 1164 & 1172), who called him in one letter: "Vir melior quam pro vulgari sorte theologorum". Rosemondt was less dogmatic than most inquisitors and his writings have been compared with those of Erasmus. He was also known as an eloquent vicar and a friend of the Dutch Pope Adrian VI.Between 1516 and 1519 he composed many devotional works, all but the Confessionale in Dutch. Parts of the Confessionale are translated from his 1517 Boecxken van der biechten, and it shares that work's amiable tone, but it is far longer, providing considerably more detail. The content reflects the fact that it is intended for a better-educated reader. It is the first book to use the Summa of Thomas Aquinas for resolving conflicts of conscience. Pope Benedict XIV rebuked Rosemondt for his audacious statements in chapter XX, "De excommunicatione", declaring it to be in discord with the views of the church. Although Rosemondt based his arguments on old concepts of Catholic clerical law, he expanded these principles to a much greater extent than the church was prepared to accept. With a contemporary owner's inscription and occasional contemporary marginal notes and underlining. With a transparent stain at the foot of the title-page, the title-page slightly worn, a couple faint marginal stains, and with the margins trimmed, but otherwise in fine condition. The binding is somewhat worn, and its vellum had been previously used for a book that was only about 2.5 cm thick but had slightly larger leaves.

        On the Principles of Political Economy and Taxation

      London: John Murray,, 1821. Third edition. Octavo (228 x 143 mm). Contemporary roan-backed marbled boards, flat spine ruled and direct lettered gilt, new endpapers, edges uncut. Ownership inscription in pencil of J. S. Charles to title dated 1871, with his ink ownership stamp to p. v; that of N. W. Beatson Bell of Balliol College Oxford dated 1887 in ink to front pastedown. Underlining and marginalia in pencil and in ink throughout. Spine and boards professionally repaired; half title and final blank leaf discarded; occasional light spotting; overall a very good copy. Third edition and the last with Ricardo's amendments. This edition contains significant corrections and additions, the most important being a new chapter on machinery which was highly relevant in light of the Industrial Revolution. By 1817, through the publication of a number of notable pamphlets, Ricardo had become a respected authority on questions of economics. Urged by James Mill and others to set down a systematic account of his theories, he produced the present work. It is based on older and accepted theories of the relations among rent, labour and production, but there is a new emphasis provided by his theory of distribution. Ricardo's exact mathematical approach and deductive methods have had an enormous influence on succeeding generations of economists and have proved of lasting value, especially in the fields of currency, banking and foreign trade.

        Osphrésiologie, ou traité des odeurs, du sens et des organes de l'olfaction ; avec l'histoire détaillée des maladies du nez et des fosses nasales, et des opérations qui leur conviennent.

      Paris, Méquignon-Marvis, 1821 - Paris, Méquignon-Marvis, 1821 ; 1 vol. in-8 (21 x 14 cm), (2), VI, 758 pp., demi-basane brune de l'époque, dos lisse orné, mors frottés, coins émoussés, envoi autographe signé ("A mon ami Felix Cadet de Gassicourt"), rares rousseurs, bon état. Édition originale rare. L'auteur avait déjà soutenu une thèse sur l'olfaction en 1815. Le texte a été considérablement augmenté, avec de très longs chapitres consacrés à la pathologie. Cet ouvrage, fruit de près de dix ans d'un "travail considérable" constitue ainsi un traité exhaustif sur le sujet, traitant de l'olfaction, des affections naso-sinusiennes, des parosmies et de l'anosmie, de la déviation de la cloison, de la rhinoplastie. Cloquet reprend sa description du ganglion nasopalatin auquel il laissa son nom. Il considère que le nerf olfactif est l¿organe essentiel de l'olfaction, n'attribuant aux fosses nasales et à leurs annexes qu'un rôle accessoire de perfectionnement. Il précise que "les molécules odorantes agissent sur les nerfs olfactifs, qui transmettent au cerveau l'impression qu'ils en reçoivent." Cloquet préconise, dans les sinusites, une ouverture large du sinus maxillaire pour permettre l'écoulement du pus. Jules Hippolyte Cloquet (1787-1840), frère du chirurgien et anatomiste Jules Cloquet, devint professeur particulier d'anatomie à Paris, membre de l'Académie de Médecine. Il fut un pionnier de la rhinologie. Belle provenance: Felix Cadet de Gassicourt, docteur en médecine et pharmacien, maire du IVe arrondissement de Paris (1830-1833). Références : Garrison & Morton, 3253: "An exhaustive work which discusses olfaction, diseases of the nose, membranous occlusion of the nostrils, deviations of the septum, rhinoplasty, coryza, vasomotor rhinitis, rhinorrhoea, etc." ; Finger S: Origins of neuroscience, p. 178: ¿In 1821, Hippolyte Cloquet wrote a 758-page book on olfaction that must be considered in the context of both scientific developments in olfaction and the social history of odors. His Osphrésiologie became the basic source on olfaction. Cloquet classified odors in a systematic way, described pathological material, talked about uses for scents, attempted to discuss the physiology of smell, and wrote about individual differences." ; McCartney W: Olfaction and Odours: An osphrésiological essay, pp. 6-7, 234: "one of the few full length discussions of olfaction ever published. This is the exhaustive treatise by Hippolyte Cloquet, M.D., entitled Osphrésiologie, issued at Paris in 1821 (Second edition). The first edition, which appeared in 1815, was, as the author says, only a simple dissertation."; Harrington A & Rosario V: Nineteenth-Century Medical Thinking on Olfaction, In: Serby MJ & Chobor KL: Science of Olfaction, pp. 4, 5, 6, 13, 15, 21 : "In 1821, Hippolyte Cloquet, a student of Cabanis, sifted through a scattered range of scientic, philosophical, and folk observations and theorizings to produce history's first reference work on the problem of olfaction: Osphrésiologie. This enormous volume was to remain the classic work on olfaction throughout the century. Without making the physiological links clear, Cloquet opened the door to the possibility that the perceiving, sensing organ of the human soul ¿the brain- was closely bound to the animal world of vegetative functions served by the internal organs." ; Walusinski O: Joseph Hippolyte Cloquet (1787-1840), Physiology of smell : Portrait of a pioneer, Clinical and Translational Neuroscience 2018, 2(1), 1-10: "Joseph-Hippolyte Cloquet went on to publish, in 1821, the first complete treatise on rhinology. His realization that odours are chemical and molecular in nature led him to formulate an accurate functional theory of the olfactory mucosa." ; Corbin A : Le miasme et la jonquille, pp. 42, 99, 132-133 : "impressionnant traité". © S.A.S.

        Memoires sur l'action mutuelle de deux courans electriques

      Paris 1821 - Ampère, André Marie (1775-1836). Mémoires sur l'action mutuelle de deux courans électriques, sur celle qui existe entre un courant électrique et un aimant ou le globe terrestre, et celle de deux aimans l'un sur l'autre. Extrait des Annales de Chimie et de Physique. 68pp. 5 folding plates. [Paris: impr. de Feugeray, 1821.] 196 x 128 mm. Old paper wrappers, small crease in back wrapper. Minor foxing, but fine otherwise. First Separate Edition of Ampère's two landmark memoirs establishing the science of electrodynamics, significantly revised from the journal versions. Ampère was present at the Académie des Sciences on Sept. 11, 1820, when François Arago performed-for the first time in France-Hans Christian Oersted's experiment demonstrating the magnetic effects of current-carrying wires on magnetized needles. Inspired by Oersted's discovery, Ampère immediately concluded that magnetism was electricity in motion, an intuitive leap which he sought to confirm by experiment. During September and October 1820, Ampère performed a series of experiments designed to elucidate the exact nature of the relationship between electric current-flow and magnetism, as well as the relationships governing the behavior of electric currents in various types of conductors. His investigations, reported weekly before the Académie des Sciences, established the new science of electrodynamics. Among the discoveries described in this memoir are Ampère's demonstration of the tangential orientation of a magnetic needle by an electric current when terrestrial magnetism is neutralized; his proof that conducting planar spirals attract and repel each other and respond to bar magnets in an analogy to magnetic poles; and his demonstration of electrodynamic forces between linear conducting wires. The memoir's plates illustrate the several instruments that Ampère devised to carry out his experiments. Ampère's scientific genius, while capable of remarkable leaps of insight, was somewhat lacking in organization and discipline. It often happened that Ampère would publish a paper one week, only to find the following week that he had thought of several new ideas that he felt ought to be incorporated into the paper. Since he could not alter the original, he would add his revisions to the separately published reprints of the paper, and even modify the revised versions later if he felt it necessary; some of his papers exist in as many as five different versions.

        PLAYS AND POEMS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE, With the Corrections and Illustrations of Various Commentators: Comprehending A LIFE OF THE POET, and an Enlarged History of the Stage, by the Late Edmond Malone. With a New Glossarial Index. [With the important preface by Boswell and the prefaces by Pope, Theobald, Hanmer, Warburton, johson, Steevens, Reed, Malone, Richardson as well as commentary by other illustrious thinkers and writers of the day, and including Rowe's Life and Malone's Life of Shakespeare and Commendatory Poems on Shakespeare, as well as extensive notes on the plays, their order and an essay on the English stage et al.]

      London: F.C. and J. Rivington; et al, 1821. 21 volumes. The 'Boswell's Malone' Edition, first thus. With an engraved frontispiece portrait in Volume I from the Chandos portrait. 8vo, handsomely bound in contemporary full smooth tan calf, boards gilt ruled, gilt decorated board edges, spines attractively gilt tooled in panels between raised gilt tooled bands, lettering labels in two panels of dark green and buff morocco, smaller morocco volume labels at the tails, all labels lettered in gilt, a.e.g. A very handsome and stately set in proper bindings, internally very fresh, bindings with some minor age evidence, some cracking to hinges on some volumes but a pleasing set. AN IMPORTANT AND EARLY PRINTING OF THE WORKS. This variorum edition not only forms a fine summery of the cumulative scholarship on Shakespeare during the 18th century but has time and again been called the foundation of modern Shakespearean scholarship. James Boswell, the son of Johnson's biographer, had a hard task in ordering Malone's papers - "I may add", he states in his 50 page introduction, "that it is not everyone who could have deciphered his notes." Along with all of Malone's material this set contains three full volumes of scholarly works including the prefaces of all of the major editions of the previous century, more then one life of Shakespeare, Boswell's life of Malone, histories of the stage, Shakespeare's will, Coat of Arms and other relative documents to the Bards life and extensive notes on and from the modern editions. In addition to all of this material is the extensive and very useful 'Glossarial Index' and an Addenda. No less then 35 publishers joined forces to produce these volumes and it is alone among the variorum editions to include a volume of Poems. Its influence was such that many years later the Sette of Odd Volumes, a renowned bibliophile dining club, limited its membership to 21 stating this in its list of rules; "The Sette of Odd Volumes to consist of twenty one, this being the number of volumes of the variorum Shakespeare of 1821".

Esta publicação foi sucessora da Gazeta de Lisboa e antepassada do actual Diário da Republica. Segundo a BNP (Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal), a partir do n. 313 (30 Dez. 1820) a Gazeta de Lisboa interrompeu a sua publicação, sendo continuada pelo n. 65 (30 Dez. 1820) do Diário do Governo e Diário da Regência, que terminou com o suplemento ao n. 131 (4 de Junho de 1823).

Em Portugal a Revolução do Porto, também referida como Revolução Liberal, foi um movimento que ocorreu em 1820, teve repercussões na História de Portugal e na História do Brasil. O movimento resultou no retorno da Corte Portuguesa em 1821, que se transferira para o Brasil durante a Guerra Peninsular, e no fim do absolutismo em Portugal, com a ratificação e implementação da primeira Constituição Portuguesa (em 1822). As Cortes reuniram-se solenemente em Janeiro de 1821 (que corresponde ao Nº 1 deste volume do Diário do Governo.

        The Plays and Poems... with the Corrections and Illustrations of various Commentators: comprehending a Life of the Poet and an enlarged History of the Stage, by the late Edmund Malone. With a new glossarial Index.

      London: Printed for F. C. and J. Rivington [etc.], 1821 21 vols., 8vo, early mottled calf, skillfully rebacked in tan calf with red and black labels lettered in gilt. A very good set. Only printing of the so-called 'Boswell's Malone', upon which Colin Franklin comments in "Shakespeare Domesticated" pp. 130-32. "This variorum edition not only forms a fine summary of the cumulative scholarship on Shakespeare during the 18th century but has time and again been called the foundation of modern Shakespearean scholarship. James Boswell, the son of Johnson's biographer, had a hard task in ordering Malone's papers - "I may add", he states in his 50 page introduction, "that it is not everyone who could have deciphered his notes." Along with all of Malone's material this set contains three full volumes of scholarly works including the prefaces of all of the major editions of the previous century, more then one life of Shakespeare, Boswell's life of Malone, histories of the stage, Shakespeare's will, Coat of Arms and other relative documents to the Bard's life and extensive notes on and from the modern editions. In addition to all of this material is the extensive and very useful 'Glossarial Index' and an Addenda. No less then 35 publishers joined forces to produce these volumes and it is alone among the variorum editions to include a volume of Poems. Its influence was such that many years later the Sette of Odd Volumes, a renowned bibliophile dining club, limited its membership to 21 stating this in its list of rules; "The Sette of Odd Volumes to consist of twenty one, this being the number of volumes of the variorum Shakespeare of 1821"." (Buddenbrooks).

        Map of the Meetings constituting New-York Meeting of Friends

      Ricketson, J., New York 1821 - Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 10" x 13". Page measures 13" x 16.25" Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 10" x 13". Page measures 13" x 16.25". This elegant and unusual map describes the meeting places of New York Quaker groups. Quaker tradition holds that members of the faith meet monthly, quarterly, and yearly to share knowledge and ideas. In addition, groups held preparatory and worship meetings throughout the year. This map conveys the extent Quaker network in New York and the surrounding areas of New Jersey, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, and Upper Canada in the early 19th century. Most intriguing is its notation of the distances between different meeting locales, which describe the travel distance between the locations of regular worship meetings and the larger group meetings. Pared down to only this significant information and a minimum of topographical detail (rivers and lakes), the map visually matches the quietude and peacefulness for which Quaker Meetings are known. The map is in very good condition. Repair to page at top left corner, image unaffected. Some foxing and staining, vertical and horizontal folds. Shadrach Ricketson (1768-1839) was a physician who practiced in Dutchess County, New York. In 1806, he published the first American text on hygiene and preventative medicine. His interest in the locations of Quaker meetings likely owes to the importance of these meetings for the sharing of new philosophies about healing and wellness within the Quaker tradition. Rare.

Robert Woodhouse was an English mathematician and astronomer, best known as a proponent of analytical calculation in mathematics. He was the first superintendent of the observatory at Cambridge. "Woodhouse is entitled to the entire credit of introducing the calculus into England, but it is doubtful if he alone, in spite of the logical power and his caustic wit, would have succeeded in converting his contemporaries. Much of his success was due to the earnest support of his three disciples, George Peacock, Herschel, and Charles Babbage…" â€" DNB, XXI, p. 873. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
