        Grundlinien der Philosophie des Rechts

      Berlin Nicolaischen Buchhandlung 1821 - The State as Perfect Organization. First Edition with Additional Title-Page HEGEL, Georg Wilhelm Friedrich. Grundlinien der Philosophie des Rechts. Berlin: In der Nicolaischen Buchhandlung, 1821. First edition. Octavo (7 11/16 x 4 13/16 inches; 196 x 123 mm). [2], xxvi, 355, [1, printer’s imprint] pp. With the additional title page: "Naturrecht und Staatswissenschaft im Grundrisse. Zum Gebrauch für seine Vorlesungen". Leaf ** bound on a stub? Contemporary marbled paper over boards. Spine with paper label, printing rubbed off. Boards rubbed and chipped, mainly along edges and at head and tail of the spine. Very small early ink signature on title page. Pages lightly browned. No rear free endpaper. Overall, an excellent, clean copy. "The Grundlinien deals with [moral and political philosophy], and is a complete system, in which the concept of a sociology dominated by the idea of the State is laid down. It turns away from the apparent chaos of the democratic advocates of individual right in favour of an overwhelming sense that liberty cannot exist apart from order, and that the vital connexion of all parts of the body politic is the source of all good. As the family is, without contract, the instinctive realization of the moral life, so, equally without contract, the State is the fullest expression of the moral spirit, where interdependence is combined with free will. The State is the perfection of man as a finite entity, whence the spirit moves into the absolute existence of art, religion and philosophy. Taken apart from the rest of his system, Hegel’s political philosophy has been much misrepresented by totalitarian propagandists. He was, however, one of the most profound and intellectual thinkers of the nineteenth century. Theology, philosophy, political theory, all have been radically influenced by his system" (Printing and the Mind of Man). This is the most important work of political philosophy before Marx, whose work is explicitly constructed as a reaction to Hegel. Borst 1361. Printing and the Mind of Man 283.

        Das Leben des Malers Johann Weber von Bern. [Published as:] XVII Neujahrstuck, herausgegeben von der Kunstler-Gesellschaft in Zurich auf das Jahr 1821

      Zurich: n.p. 1821. Square octavo, aquatint frontispiece, 13pp. with engraved oval portrait at head of first page; a fine copy in the original printed brown wrappers, preserved in a folding bookform case. Only edition, rare: with the famous engraved portrait of John Webber, the official artist of Cook's third voyage. This was the only contemporary portrait of Webber to have been published.This biographical essay is the main source of the little that is known about the life of Webber, and is based on letters and oral communications Wagner collected soon after Webber's death in 1793, including information from the artist's brother Henry. A stand-alone and separately-paginated publication, this was issued in a series of small printings put out by the Society of Artists (Kunstler-Gesellschaft) in Zurich who seem to have produced an annual publication every New Year over some decades.Wagner's pamphlet not only features an attractive frontispiece based on Webber's image of the burial platform in Tahiti, one of the more famous images from his Voyages in the South Seas (plate VIII), but is especially notable for the engraved portrait of Webber himself by K. Meyer. For such a prolific artist there are curiously few known likenesses. He did paint a miniature self-portrait now held in Bern, and this painting was used as the basis for a larger work by Johann Daniel Mottet in 1812. One or other of these very similar paintings was evidently the basis for Meyer's engraving. Significantly, the only other lifetime portrait of Webber appears to be John Spiller's marble plaque of the artist in profile (now in the Rex Nan Kivell collection in the National Library of Australia).Forbes knew the work only from the Sir Maurice Holmes copy in the UCLA library.

        Letters Written During the Late Voyage of Discovery in the Western Arctic Sea. By an Officer of the Expedition. [pseud].

Published for Richard Phillips and Co. 1821. - 8vo, 21cm, iv,124p., engraved frontis map & 3 engraved plates, bound in quarter polished calf and marbled boards, gilt titles along the spine, some offsetting on the title page, a fine copy. (ads) A.B. 9997. Lande 1288. TPL 4863. Sabin 40658. Letters from the Parry Expedition, 1819-1820, describing the voyage and the wintering at Winter Harbour, Melville Island, the Canadian Arctic waters and their ice, the Arctic night, the activities of the crews. Although anonymous, internal evidence shows the officer to have been one of the midshipmen on the Griper; either A.M. Skene or William Nelson Griffth. All of the letters are addressed to the author's brother, Thomas, and they contain a great deal of information about the voyage, particularly regarding conditions on the ship, the hardships of Winter Harbour, the Arctic night, the crew's morale, etc. The style is informal and `chatty' and this book makes an excellent supplement to the official admiralty account written by Captain Parry.

        Execution of Stephen Merrill Clark, Which Took Place on Winter Island

      1821 - An Event That Advanced a Successful Movement to Reduce the Number of Capital Crimes in Massachusetts [Broadside]. [Execution]. [Salem, Massachusetts]. Execution of Stephen Merrill Clark, Which Took Place on Winter Island, Salem, On Thursday, May 10, 1821. Salem (?), MA: S.n., 1821. 17-1/2" x 11-1/4" broadside. Text in four columns enclosed by black rules, small woodcut of a coffin below headline, untrimmed edges. Light browning and foxing, fold lines, three horizontal and one vertical, a few creases and tiny fold-overs along edges. A notably well-preserved copy of a scarce item. $1,850. * In 1820 Clark burned down a barn. There was no loss of life, but he was tried for a capital crime, found guilty and sentenced to death. The jury recommended commutation to no avail. He was sixteen years of age when he committed the crime, seventeen when executed. His case helped to advance a successful movement to reduce the number of capital crimes. By 1852 only murder remained a capital offense. Cohen lists this item but notes that he didn't handle a copy; his entry is based on a dealer's catalogue. Cohen also notes another broadside, again unseen, a 16-page pamphlet at Harvard Law School, and a 63-page report of the trial, at Yale Law School. Curiously, there is nothing for Clark in McDade, which is surprising given the contemporary and long-term importance of the case. These omissions in McDade suggest the rarity of these four accounts. OCLC locates 10 copies of the broadside. Cohen, Bibliography of Early American Law 1238.

First edition, first issue, with the Doge's speech on p. 151 starting "What crimes?" and lasting five-and-a-half lines, changed in the second issue to begin, "His crimes!" followed by seven additional lines. Marino Falerio is a verse tragedy written by Byron after visiting the Palazzo Ducale in Venice and discovering that the portrait of the 14th-century ruler Marino Faliero had been blacked out, on account of his failed coup d'état. Byron's play inspired a painting by Delacroix and a rewriting by Swinburne. It was published along with his poem "The Prophecy of Dante", which Byron had written in 1819 to amuse his lover the Countess Teresa Guiccioli, and which he considered "the best thing I ever wrote" (letter to Murray, 23 March 1820).

        Hinterlassene Schriften. Hrsg. von Ludwig Tieck. LXXVIII, 290 S. Marmor. Pappbd d. Z. (Kanten berieben) mit Rückenschild.

      Berlin, G. Reimer, 1821. - Erste Ausgabe. Die lange Einleitung von Tieck gehört zu den wichtigsten zeitgenössischen Quellen zu Leben und Werk Heinrich von Kleists (1777-1811). "Tiecks Name bleibt bis heute mit den Erstausgaben von Novalis, Maler Müller, Kleist und Lenz engstens verbunden und nimmt in der Rezeptionsgeschichte dieser Dichter eine besondere Stellung ein . Schließlich lassen sich Verbindungen herstellen zwischen allen vier Dichtern und Tiecks eigenem literarischen Bestreben: zwischen 'Sternbald' und 'Heinrich von Ofterdingen' als Fortsetzung des frühromantischen Künstlerromans, zwischen Kleists Geschichtsdramen (Tieck schätzte sie besonders) und der angestrebten Erneuerung eines Nationaltheaters . Die verdienstvollen Kleist-Ausgaben von 1821 und 1826, die Tiecks Selbstlosigkeit und sein sicheres Erkennen von Dichtergenies bekunden, enthalten bezeichnenderweise keine pauschale Ehrenrettung Kleists; es ist im Vorwort von der 'tiefen Disharmonie' und den 'grellen Widersprüchen' seines Wesens die Rede" (Paulin, Metzler, S. 106 ff). Der Band enthält u. a. die Erstdrucke des 'Prinz von Homburg' und der 'Hermannschlacht'. Unveröffentlicht waren auch: Sonett an die Königin von Preußen, Gedichte an Franz I., Palafox und den Erzherzog Carl sowie Brieffragmente 'aus einer Korrespondenz mit einer geistreichen Verwandtinn' (d. i. Marie v. Kleist). – Unterschiedlich stockfleckig. – Goed. VI 44, 135 und 103; Sembdner 33; Borst 1371. [Attributes: First Edition]

Marino Falerio is a verse tragedy written by Byron after visiting the Palazzo Ducale in Venice and discovering that the portrait of the 14th-century ruler Marino Faliero had been blacked out, on account of his failed coup d'état. Byron's play inspired a painting by Delacroix and a rewriting by Swinburne. It was published along with his poem "The Prophecy of Dante", which Byron had written in 1819 to amuse his lover the Countess Teresa Guiccioli, and which he considered "the best thing I ever wrote" (letter to Murray, 23 March 1820).

      Cf. Borba de Moraes, p. 754; Regnet, Münchener Künstlerbilder II, pp. 132-141. A 4-page letter by the widely-travelled German painter Rugendas, famous for his sumptuously illustrated book Voyage pittoresque dans le Brésil , which was the fruit of his travels in Brazil (1821-1825). Inspired by Von Humboldt, he sailed again for South America in 1831, travelling through Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay, Peru, Bolivia, and Brazil. In 1846 he departed for Europe, spending his last years in Munich and Weilheim an der Teck. The King of Bavaria purchased his sketches in exchange for a life annuity of 1200 florins per year. Apparently, Rugendas was still in need of money, since he writes in the present letter that he wants to travel to Prussia to ask the King for a salary "von dem es sich's gut hier leben ließ - ungefähr wie Humboldt in Paris lebte ...". He further mentions the preparation of a "Künstlerball", for which the conductor and opera director Karl Perfall had composed the music. Rugendas refers to the famous "Künsterlfeste", theme parties that took place every year during carnival.The letter may have been addressed to Rugendas's friend Carl Albert Regnet, a District Officer in Munich. This is at least suggested by the added document, which is signed by Regnet and which opens with the remark "Zum Briefe meines lieben unvergeßlichen Freundes Moritz Rugendas möchten ein Paar Zeile am Platze sein", followed by details on Rugendas's life and works. Regnet would later honour Rugendas with an extensive entry in his 2-volume biographical dictionary Münchener Künstlerbilder (1871).In very good condition.

        Procession of Victuallers

      Philadelphia: Published by Joseph Yeager; printed by Charles Woodward, 1821. Engraving, etching and aquatint with hand-coloring and mezzotint on buff wove paper (plate: 50.5 x 66 cm.; image: 42.5 x 59 cm.). Second state, in which it is added that the view was "taken from M. Carey & Sons Book Store. S.E. corner of 4th and Chestnut Sts". There is no known extant copy of the first state, but it is referred to and described in Stauffer & Fielding's American Engravers upon Copper and Steel (page 556). "The procession of butchers with their carts carrying meat from a cattle market show was organized to encourage the breeding of cattle and attracted 300,000 people if the Philadelphia Gazette is to be believed. It took one hundred carts to carry 86,731 pounds of meat, including bear and deer meat. The butchers and victualers proudly flew their banner, 'We feed the Hungry.'" (Nash, First City: Philadelphia and the Forging of Historical Memory). ~ "[T]he most popular of local views in aquatint was the light-hearted genre scene, The Procession of the Victuallers. This is almost the only such local print of its time. Set in an atmosphere of happy holiday cheer, there is in it as well the appeal of dozens of figures drawn from Krimmel (1786-1821), whose simple charm in the flat planar medium is redolent of days long gone. The Procession of the Victuallers, drawn by Krimmel in the year of his death, 1821, was aquatinted by Joseph Yeager (c. 1792-1859) in his only engraving in that mode which has been found. This is lavish in size and in the crowded atmosphere typical of Krimmel… The Philadelphia Gazette of March 16, the day after the event, reported that 'What added considerably to the novelty and beauty of the scene, was the ascension of several handsome balloons during the line of march.' It has been said that the spectacle was witnessed by 300,000; the population of the city at that time was 127,000." (Snyder, Mirror of America). The 1904 auction catalogue of rare Americana from the estate of Moses Polock, "the oldest bookseller in the United States" included the original watercolor (later sold at Christie's New York in 2008 for $338,500), and the descriptions noted that it was "from this that the now very rare engraving was made." There is loss to the margins at the lower right-hand corner, and several closed tears intruding into the text or the image; paper restoration is subtle but visible. Some general discoloration, but the colors remain quite bright. Framed. Rare. [Stauffer & Fielding 3438ii].

        Antique Print-RED KITE-MILVUS MILVUS-BIRDS OF PREY-GLEAD-Selby-1821

      - Plate V: 'Kite or Glead.' This plate shows the red kite (Milvus milvus). Copperplate engraving / etching on a vellin type paper with original hand colouring. Description: This rare original antique print originates from 'Illustrations of Ornithology. London' by John Selby published 1821-1834. Imperial folio.Artists and Engravers: Prideaux John Selby (1788 - 1867) is often called the British Audubon, for his magnificent work, Illustrations of Ornithology, was the first British natural history to render all its subjects in their exact life size, as Audubons was the first to do so for American birds. The connection actually goes deeper, for in 1826 Selby took lessons in technique from Audubon in Edinburgh, and this is evidenced in the marvelous skill with which Selby portrayed his subjects. In depicting the birds in their life size, Selby produced prints of a larger size than any other prints of the period than those of Audubon, whose prints followed shortly. Selby employed the best British engravers and colorists of the time, and the large size of the prints allowed the most advantageous display of the fine work for which these prints are known. Finely engraved, accurate in detail, wonderfully colored, and strong and dramatic in appearance, Selbys prints are some of the best figures of British birds that have ever been published. (C.E. Jackson, Bird Illustrators, p.33). Condition: Good. General age-related toning and light staining/soiling from handling as visible on image. A few small spots in the margins. Paper slightly wrinkled. Small tear right margin, backed. Please study scan carefully. Storage location: DP-P5-10 The overall size is ca. 19.3 x 24.4 inch. The image size is ca. 10.2 x 15.6 inch.

        Features Waterloo - United Kingdom of the Netherlands, Pre-Revolutionary Dutch-Ruled Belgium and Paris

      Netherlands, France, Belgium, circa 1823. Manuscript fair copy travel journal of a "A Tour on the Continent" lasting one month from 13 September 1821 to 11 October 1821, which features a visit to the site of the Battle of Waterloo, made by J.D. and W.C., the latter being William Chapman, an ancestral relation of British historian and economist Guy Patterson Chapman, possibly his paternal grandfather. Evidently with the original travel journal or paper notes in hand, this volume was written in 1823, or shortly thereafter, as the leafs are watermarked with that year, and features the bookplate of William Chapman to front pastedown, presumably the author. 8vo. 134 pages in manuscript, in a fine hand, with a later manuscript dedication to front leaf dated July 1892. Paginated in manuscript by the writer to upper margins. Half green roan over brown paper boards. A pleasing volume. Provenance: From the library of Major Guy Patterson Chapman, British historian, author, economist, and distinguished World War II soldier, son of a wealthy barrister G.W. Chapman, and husband to novelist Storm Jameson. Indeed, the journal would have been of special interest to him. He is said to have inherited his passion for travel, and for claret, from his maternal grandfather who was a partner in the large shipping firm Gellatly & Gellatly. His interest in writing may have stemmed from his paternal grandfather who was a publisher. Contemporary descriptions of him state that he descended from a family of country folk, which is reflected in William Chapman's uncomplicated bookplate depicting an eagle grasping a sheath of wheat and a staff, surrounded by a garter that likens the English royal coat of amrs. Major Guy Patterson Chapman OBE MC (1889-1972) served with the Royal Fusiliers in France and Belgium during the Great War, surviving the Battle of Somme in 1916. He also survived the Battle of Arras in 1917 but was badly affected by a mustard gas attack. Following treatment for this he returned to the Western Front, remaining until the armistice was signed on 11 November 1918. The highlight of the journal is a contemplative walkabout on the field of Waterloo only six years after the great battle that defeated Napoleon's army, with nine pages of the journal describing his observations at the site, including remnants of war, and reflections on the critical manoeuvres and assaults. Excerpts from the text pertaining to Waterloo: "Saturday 22 Sept. 1821. Our time this day was passed in a visit to the celebrated Field of Waterloo the place of the final overthrow of the Power of Bonaparte." "... a few miles distant from Brussels entered the Forest of Soignes... all young beeches... an oak of great size... as far as the eye could see." [Also known as the Sonian Forest or Sonian Wood, the forest lay behind the Anglo-allied Army of the Duke of Wellington at the Battle of Waterloo. From the time of the Romans it had generally been seen as a tactical blunder to position troops for battle in front of woodland because it hampers their ability to retreat.] "... we reached the Village of Waterloo a neat place and until lately scarce known to be in existence tho' now the fame of it..." "We left our carriage at Mont St Jean a small village... walked to the place of battle which is a fine open field with two hills opposite each other about half a mile apart on which the adverse Armies were ranged and the small valley between was the place of desperate conflict. " [Upon learning that the Prussian army was able to support him, Wellington decided to offer battle on the Mont-Saint-Jean escarpment, across the Brussels road. Here he withstood repeated attacks by the French throughout the afternoon, aided by the progressively arriving Prussians.] "We stood upon the spot where the Duke of Wellington remained during the battle close to which are two Monuments... to the memory of the Officers of the German Legion and to the other... that of Sir Alexander Gordon." [Lieutenant-Colonel Sir Alexander Gordon was a British Army officer who was killed at the Battle of Waterloo, having been wounded while rallying Brunswickers near La Haye Sainte. He died in Wellington's own camp bed in his headquarters during the night.] "From this place is an uninterrupted view of the field and though its extent is very considerable yet at one glance the eye can take the whole of the various pictures positions of the contending armies." "... nor fosse nor fence are found save where from out her shatter'd towers rise Hougoumont's dismantled Towers. Close by is the Farm House of La Haye Sainte which formed one of the British Positions and the furthest spot to which the French Army penetrated, they did once obtain possession of it but did not hold it long." [On the western side of the main road, and in front of the rest of Wellington's line, was the walled farmhouse and orchard of La Haye Sainte, which was garrisoned with 400 light infantry of the King's German Legion. The farmhouse, situated at the foot of an escarpment on the Charleroi-Brussels road, was a crucial Allied stronghold during the battle.] "... walked along the Road to the small House of La Belle Alliance the headquarters of Bonaparte during the Battle. In the Gable are still remaining many Cannon Balls which were sent there by the English Artillery and are plastered in with great care." [According to an account of 1820, originally La Belle Alliance consisted of three houses, one of which was a tavern, that now bears the name, and two adjacent houses.] "We then turned to the right along the French line at a short distance from the extremity of which is the Chateau of Hougoumont which was the great object of contention and the scene of the most dreadful fighting... continued efforts of the French Troops to take it... set it on fire which forced its defenders out. It is now in a state of complete ruin as it was left and bears ample witness to the vigor of the attack... The garden still produces fruit of which we tasted sour apples." [The Château d'Hougoumont (originally Goumont) is a large farmhouse situated at the bottom of an escarpment near the Nivelles road in Braine-l'Alleud, near Waterloo. Hougoumont had become dilapidated and was recently restored.] "We then returned along the English Line to Mont St Jean... the graves of twenty thousand men are no longer visible, the plough has levelled them." End excerpts. Also fascinating is Chapman's firsthand description of The Promenades Aeriennes or Aerial Strolls - the first modern rollercoaster - which was powered by horses and operated for seven years from 1817 to 1824 in Parc Beaujon, an amusement park on the Champs Elysees in Paris. With three-wheeled cars securely locked to a track, guide rails to keep them on course, early nineteenth century thrill seekers rode up and descended down steep inclines at what was then considered high speeds. In true nineteenth century dialogue, Chapman presents a rather sophisticated and eloquent account of the early form of an exhilarating amusement of the senses. On 28 September he and his travel companion had departed from La Mézière in a "carriole de poste."Reaching Paris on Sunday the 30th, they settled in the "Hotel d'Angleterre" on Rue Filles de St. Thomas, and began taking in the experience that only the City of Lights can offer. Thirty-four (34) pages are devoted to the tour of Paris, where an entire week was spent. Excerpts from the text describing Paris: "30 September 1821.... a desire to roam... we went to that centre of Gaiety and dissipation the Palais Royal where the splendour of the Shops, the Magnificence of the Restaurateurs and Cafes and the Gaiety of the Visitors form a Scene perhaps without its equal in any part of Europe." "1st Oct 1821.... we rambled over many streets and places not knowing exactly whither we were going... Walking is disagreeable... the carriages drive so close to the houses and so confusedly... a pedestrian is exposed to considerable danger of being run over and is certain to be well splashed unless is careful to avoid coming on Coaches and Cabriolets... The streets are lighted by lamps suspended in the middle of the street by a rope attached to the opposite houses... In the Boulevards they have lately introduced Gas." [Paris started gas illumination of its streets in 1820. Gas was led through pipe installations to the gas lanterns that were placed on poles. Every evening the lamplighters manual lit the lanterns and every morning they put them out, until the invention of a mechanical system that released gas into the lamp. The first electric streetlight would appear in Paris in 1878 - some 55 years after Chapman's visit, being Russian engineered arc lamps called "Yablochkov candle".] "The Boulevards... The best Shops by far are here and innumerable Cafés and it is the favourite Lounge of the French Exquisites..." "... the Place Vendôme... the Luxembourg Palace built by Mary de Medici... the Place du Carrousel in which is a Beautiful triumphal Arch erected by Bonaparté on which were placed the four celebrated Horses brought by him from Venice and restored to that city at the Peace of 1815. Bonaparté's spoiling of conquered nations has been very much censured..." "2 Oct. 1821. The Palais Royal likewise occupied a great portion of our time. The interior is a large Parallelogram of the most elegant architecture... an arcade extending round the Building in which are the Shops... a Promenade... beautiful fountain... once the Palace of the Duke of Orleans the Promoter of the French Revolution..." "4 Oct. 1821.... To aid us in our movement this day we hired a Fiacre or Hackery Coach which are better than the London and inferior to the Brussel ones..." "In the Evening we went to the Jardin Beaujon... the principal amusements are dancing and seeing conjurors [magicians]... and above all, riding down the mountains which here are the most superior in Paris. Two persons seat themselves in a Car which is then set in Motion down a gentle descent (running in grooves and so secured that they cannot be overturned) when they arrive at the bottom of a steep hill the Car by the force of its motion ascends a short way up this and there catches in a revolving chain which draws up to the top an elevation of upwards of fifty feet... guided to another descent much steeper than the first and in shape like a semi-circle down this the base runs with inconceivable rapidity to the spot from which it started where they are stopped by a strong spring which arrests their course very gently..." The Parisians & especially the Females delight in this amusement... The price of a ride is half a franc. Eight horses are employed to work the Machinery to draw them up. "5 Oct. 1821... to the Telegraph on Montmartre... a Battle was fought here in 1814 between the Troops of Bonaparte & the English who... captured the grandest City of Europe... We then went to that most romantic burying ground of Pere Lachaise, situated a little distance from the Town as no burials are allowed within the City... The cemetery is of great extent and the Tombs very numerous and of all Forms than Fancy can devise." "6 Oct. 1821. Our morning ramble was through the Champs Elysees... a fine opera which is called Place de Louis 15... to the Palais Bourbons... From this it is a short walk to the Hotel des Invalides..." End Excerpts. Beginning "on board the King George Packet at Dover" the month-long "Tour on the Continent," and thus the present manuscript, yields even more nostalgic imagery of Europe nearly two hundred years ago. Ghent, Antwerp, Brussels, Liège, Aix la Chapelle in Aachen, Calais, Gravelines, Versailles, Reims and Dunkirk were all visited, as well as Waterloo and Paris as described above. Early modes of transportation - usually horse-drawn or on rivers and canals, simple and foremost methods of street lighting, fashion and customs, languages foreign to the writer, chateaus, cathedrals, streets and shops, a palatial spa, and further sites of historical battles of the Napoleonic Wars leading up to the fall of Napoleon, are all described in firsthand observations of an astute and well-written English traveller. Historic hotels are named and described, as are certain city streets which have changed drastically in the past two centuries. A pleasing and detailed visual image of the old-time charm of notable continental cities, splendid tree-lined vistas and promenades which have since been commercially overtaken, ancient architecture and nineteenth century homes, citizens of three unique countries and their customs! The Battle of Waterloo was fought on Sunday, 18 June 1815, near Waterloo in present-day Belgium, then part of the United Kingdom of the Netherlands. The Kingdom of the Netherlands finds its origin in the aftermath of Napoleon's defeat in 1813. In March 1815, amidst the turmoil of the Hundred Days, the Sovereign Prince adopted the style of "King of the Netherlands". Following Napoleon's second defeat at the Battle of Waterloo, the Vienna Congress supplied international recognition of William's unilateral move. The new King of the Netherlands was also made Grand Duke of Luxembourg, a part of the Kingdom that was, at the same time, a member state of the German Confederation. In 1830, Belgium seceded from the Kingdom of the Netherlands, a step that was recognised by the Netherlands only in 1839. At that point, Luxembourg became a fully independent country in a personal union with the Netherlands. Luxembourg also lost more than half of its territory to Belgium.

Compiled from a series of lectures the author gave at Heidelberg University, Elements of the Philosophy of Right is generally considered to be one of the greatest works of political philosophy. Although the imprint states 1821 The Philosophy of Right was published in 1820, as Hegel expected publication to be delayed by censorship.

        O retrato de Venus, poema.

      Coimbra, Na Imprensa da Universidade, 1821. - 12°, mid-twentieth-century half calf over marbled boards, spine gilt with raised bands in five compartments, crimson leather lettering and numbering pieces in second compartment from head and at foot of spine, gilt letter and numbers, decorated endleaves, top edges gilt, other edges uncut, red silk ribbon place marker. Small ink stain in outer margin of title page. Fresh, and in very good to fine condition. Old ink manuscript marginal notes on pp. 11, 12, 15 and 16 of the first canto. 156 pp., (1 l. Advertencia). *** FIRST EDITION of this significant early work by this great romantic adherent to the liberal cause, with the "Advertencia" leaf at the end, usually not present. Circulating in manuscript, the Retrato caused a heated controversy over the supposed immorality, atheism, and impiety of the seventeen-year-old Almeida Garrett. He was taken to court but emerged triumphant in 1822. Meanwhile, the work had been published in this edition of Coimbra, 1821. Soon after the 1823 counter-revolution, the patriarch of Lisbon issued a pastoral letter forbidding anyone from reading the poem on pain of excommunication. A second edition appeared in Rio de Janeiro, 1861.This poem is an esthetic education rather than an erotic exposition: Almeida Garrett mentions dozens of painters, among them Guercino, Raphael, Zeuxis, Appelles, Caravaggio, Correggio, Van Eyck, and the Bellinis. (Who would have thought so many of their names would scan?) Each of the four cantos is followed by a section of notes. After the fourth canto comes "Ensaio sobre a história da pintura" (pp. 95-156) because, explains Almeida Garrett, the Retrato is most incomprehensible without some grasp of the history of painting, and he believed there was no history of painting in Portuguese. (He was not quite correct: Prunetti's Regras da arte da pintura appeared in Lisbon, 1815 with an appendix by Taborda that was the first compendium of Portuguese painters.) A short section on the Greeks and Romans is followed by chapters on painting in Rome, Florence, Bologna, Venice, Flanders, France, and England, from the fifteenth to eighteenth centuries. At p. 139 Almeida Garrett begins discussing Portuguese painting from the eleventh century to the early nineteenth, giving a brief evaluation of the work of important painters.In the "Advertencia," Almeida Garrett states that he seldoms makes apologies for his work, but that he has reread this piece and has found "infindos defeitos, que me tinhão escapado; sendo-me impossivel emenda-los." He acknowledges the corrections made by "Excellentissimo Senhor S. Luiz" - probably Cardeal Francisco de São Luis Saraiva, who is credited in the manuscript copy at the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal with having made corrections.The Visconde de Almeida Garrett (1799-1854) was a man of great talent and far-reaching interests: "As journalist, founder and editor of several short-lived newspapers, as a stylist and master of prose, his country's chief lyric poet in the first half of the nineteenth century . and greatest dramatist since the sixteenth; as politician and one of the most eloquent of all Portugal's orators, an enthusiastic if unscientific folklorist, a novelist, critic, diplomatist, soldier, jurist and judge, Almeida Garrett played many parts and with success" (Bell, Portuguese Literature pp. 288-89).*** Innocêncio III, 309-13. Pinto de Mattos (1969) p. 322. Palha 911. Ameal 75. Azevedo-Samodães 104. See Saraiva & Lopes, p. 750. Porbase locates four copies at the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal plus one at the Universidade de Coimbra; it also lists Almeida Garrett's autograph manuscript, at the Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal. Copac locates copies at the British Library, Manchester University, and Oxford University. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
