Obwohl M. von nur einem einzigen System ausging und die Chemie als Kriterium ablehnte, wurde er zu einem Wegbereiter der modernen Mineralogie. 1812 stellte er eine Härteskala der Mineralien mit 10 Graden auf, die später nach ihm benannt wurde und heute noch international in Gebrauch ist" (NDB XVII, 715 f). - Unbeschnitten.

        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).

        [Autograph letter signed ("Mor. Rugendas") to an unnamed recipient].Munich, 21 December 1852. 8vo (22 x 14 cm). In German. With: (2) [AUTOGRAPH]. REGNET, Carl Albert. [ Manuscript note about Rugendas, signed ("Regnet")].Munich, 13 January 1869. In German.

      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].

      - 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.

        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.

(portrait of Wathen after Archer James Oliver), titlepage with hand-coloured aquatint vignette, illus. with two woodcut tailpieces & nine hand-coloured plates (one folding, neatly backed with silk). A nice clean copy. Attractively bound with numerous blanks in 20th century half dark green crushed morocco, green cloth boards, spine lettered in gilt. Signature on leading f.e.p. of J.G. Le Quesne. v.g.Copac lists three copies, with OCLC adding seven more. Auction records show the most recent copy selling in London in 2011 for £4500. Loosely inserted is the later business card of Julian Wathen, a descendent of the artist, and a typed invitation from him to Le Quesne, dated November 1978. A very attractive copy of Wathen's magnificent drawings, produced 'during the short stay of not quite three days on the Island of St. Helena, in the Summer of 1812'. The plates, engraved on copper by I. Clarke, are preceded by an Advertisement, a five-page descriptive account of the island, and an explanatory list of the plates. Wathen, c.1751-1828, was a glove-maker from Hereford. A keen walker and self-taught artist, he went on numerous walking tours in Britain and Ireland, especially after his retirement, producing fine topographical sketches along the way. The war in Europe prevented travel on the continent in the early part of the 19th century, encouraging Wathen to travel further afield, namely a trip to India and the Far East aboard Captain James Prendergast's ship The Hope. Wathen published an account of his travels in 1814, illustrated with his own highly accomplished drawings. The voyage took in St Helena, affording Wathen a brief opportunity to sketch the island, and although two of those images appeared in his Journal of a Voyage to India and China, the others remained unseen until the publication of this work. The Advertisement, anonymously written, gives some idea of their splendour: 'That solitary speck in the vast Atlantic, which looks as if loneliness and loveliness had at once marked it for their own, is here faithfully shewn in all its wild and romantic lineaments, and from these representations those who may never look upon the original scenes, may yet highly enjoy them in such correct reflections'. This is a scarce publication.

        Manuscript Land Grant to Nathan Elliott in Van Diemens Land

      Sydney, 1821. Folio; manuscript in ink on vellum, 303 x 390 mm; in fine original condition, with suspended paper seal. A good, early grant by Macquarie as fifth governor, with the signatures of Charles Whelan as witness and Frederick Goulburn as Registrar. Of special interest is the signature of the second witness: Hector Macquarie, the governor's nephew, affectionately known to his uncle as the "Hero Hector". This land grant dates from just after the period when Hector accompanied Macquarie and his wife on their official tour of Tasmania.By this grant Nathan Elliott received seven hundred acres of land in the district of Jarvis, Van Diemens Land, on the Strathallan Creek. The area, which became known as Tea Tree Brush, is to the north of Hobart between Brighton and Richmond. Here Elliott built an important early house, Strathallan, and the grant is today a heritage property at the centre of a working farm.This land grant is on vellum, with a good signature by the governor, and is complete with Macquarie's seal of the colony of New South Wales. When it was issued in 1821, Macquarie had already lost his fight against John Thomas Bigge, the royal commissioner and the man who forced his resignation as governor. History has treated Macquarie more fairly since: the colony can be seen to have enormously prospered under his leadership from 1810 to 1822, and it is now celebrated as the Age of Macquarie and the period when New South Wales found its independent entity.Nathan Elliott arrived as a free immigrant in Van Diemen's Land 11 October 1819 on the David Shaw (his fellow passengers on the voyage included Richard Read, headed for Sydney). 21 months later years Elliott was granted this large parcel of land to which he subsequently added by further grants. By April 1837, Elliott had 395 acres in the parish of Drummond, 736 acres in the parish of Jarvis and 10 acres at Brighton. He began construction of the Strathallan homestead in the 1830s, and it was completed by 1842. He further expanded the property by acquiring neighbouring land and by 1862 it comprised 1,130 acres.

        Analyse du Jeu des Échecs, Par Philidor, Avec une nouvelle notation abrégée, et quarante-deux plances où se trouve figurée la situation du jeu pour les renvois et les fins de partie.

      Philadelphie: J. Johnston, 1821. Leatherbound. Good. Nouvelle Édition. A laquelle on a joint la figure et la marche des différentes pièces de de Jeu, ainsi que l'explication des termes qui lui sont particuliers. [7], 4-12, 131-134, 13-126, [7], 138-150 p. + plates (pp. 131-134 misbound). 18 cm. 21 colour plates at rear in red, green and black. One b&w woodcut diagram of chess pieces. Full leather with gold impressing. Chipped spine ends and worn corners. Bookplate and clipping on front pastedown. Ink notations on bottom of front pastedown, rear of front free endpaper, and top of half title. Foxing. Tear in p. 143. Philidor (1726 – 1795) was a French composer who was also regarded as the best chess player of his age. He once played three blindfold games simultaneously in a chess club in London. A well-known chess opening and a checkmate method are both named after him. Eventually, as the clipping on the inside cover notes, he was forced to flee the French Revolution and settle permanently in England. First published in 1749, this book was a standard chess manual for at least a century. It was the first that gave detailed annotations on how to play the middle part of the game, that presented chess strategy as a whole, and that presented the concepts of the blockade, prophylaxis, positional sacrifice, and mobility of the pawn formation. A scarce edition, produced in the U.S. in French. Note the bookplate for Rev. F. X. Burque, apparently a well-known 19th-century chess player from St. Hyacinthe, Quebec.

        On the principles of political economy, and taxation Third edition

      London:: John Murray, 1821., 1821. 8vo. xii, 538 pp. Occasional foxing. Original paper-backed boards, printed paper spine label; spine rebacked with kozo, spine label chipped (a remnant) all extremities worn. Rubber-ownership stamp of Henry R. Wagner. Binding needs work; internally very good. Third edition of this classic work on political economics. This edition includes his chapter "On Machinery," which reconsidered the role of labor and the effect machines had on the labor force. " Ricardo's view, it is a choice between the potential for detrimental effects on labor from the use of new machinery versus even worse effects if the machinery is not used at all. His argument can certainly be questioned, at least in some places, but this is not the positive "lift all boats" theory of growth that is often attributed to Ricardo." - Sunday, September 16, 2012, Mark Thoma, [see: Economist's viewpoint]. "If I have to hire a labourer for a week, and instead of ten shillings I pay him eight, no variation having taken place in the value of money, the labourer can probably obtain more food and necessaries with his eight shillings than he before obtained for ten: but this is owing, not to a rise in the real value of his wages, as stated by Adam Smith, and more recently by Mr. Malthus, but to a fall in the value of the things on which his wages are expended, things perfectly distinct; and yet for calling this a fall in the real value of wages, I am told that I adopt new and unusual language, not reconcilable with the true principals of the science. To me it appears that the unusual and, indeed, inconsistent language is that used by my opponents." - Ricardo, On the principles of political economy, pp. 11-12. "David Ricardo is without doubt the greatest representative of classical political economy. He carried his work begun by Smith to the farthest point possible without choosing one or the other of the roads which led out of the contradiction inherent in it." - Roll, Eric, History of Economic Thought, pp. 155-6. "This work solidly established [Ricardo's] reputation as the leading economic annalist of his day. Barber, William J., A History of Economic Thought, 1967. "He now began to interest himself in scientific and mathematical studies, but after reading The Wealth of Nations he decided to devote himself to political economy The fundamental groundwork of the Principles is based on the theory that, given free competition in trade, the exchange value of commodities will be determined by the amount of labor expended in production: not a wholly original thesis, nor one capable of absolute expression, but one which was given new force by the theory of distribution with which Ricardo reinforced it. ... Ricardo was, in a sense, the first 'scientific' economist... Ricardo saw the study of economics as a pure science whose abstractions were capable of quasi-mathematical proof... his deductive methods have proved of great use in the elementary analysis of economic problems, and in the subjects which are capable of his rigid analysis, currency and banking, it has proved of lasting value." - Printing and the Mind of Man, 277. PROVENANCE: Henry Raup Wagner (1862-1957), Yale educated lawyer (classes of 1884 and 1886) and mining engineer who retired to California in 1917 where he became a leading bibliophile and California historical and cartographic authority. See: Streeter, Thomas W., "Henry R. Wagner, collector, bibliographer, cartographer and historian," California Historical Society Quarterly, Vol. 36, No. 2, (Jun., 1957), pp. 165-175.

        Voyage autour du monde, fait dans les annees 1803, 1804, 1805 et 1806, par les ordres de Sa Majestie Imperiale Alexandre Ier, empereur de Russie, sur les vaisseaux la Nadiejeda et la Neva

      Gide fils, Paris 1821 - 3 volumes (text: 2 volumes, 8vo [8 x 5 1/2 inches]; atlas: folio [18 1/2 x 12 inches]). xii, 418; [4], 531, [1]pp. 30 engraved plates (portrait, 9 maps and 20 plates; 2 double-page maps). Uncut. Text in period patterned paper wrappers, the atlas bound to style in uniform period panelled wrappers. Housed in black morocco backed boxes. First edition in French of Krusenstern's seminal account of the first Russian expedition to circumnavigate the globe: complete with the rare atlas of plates. Capt. Ivan von Krusenstern's voyage was one of the most important post-Cook Pacific voyages, specifically aimed at obtaining more knowledge of the northern Pacific region, establishing diplomatic and commercial relations with Japan, and visiting the Russian trading posts in Alaska and on the west coast of America. It comprised the first Russian expedition to circumnavigate the globe, under the command of Krusenstern, between 1803 and 1806. Sailing in 1803, the expedition touched on Brazil and rounded Cape Horn, visiting the Marquesas Islands, Hawaii, Kamchatka, and Japan. In Hawaii the expedition separated, with ships under Langsdorff and Lisianski sailing to the Northwest Coast, while Krusenstern himself undertook the delicate Japan expedition, returning via Macao and the Cape of Good Hope. "The importance of this work stems from its being the official account of the first Russian expedition to circumnavigate the globe, and form the discoveries and rectifications of charts that were made, especially in the North Pacific and on the northwest coast of America" (Hill). First published in St. Petersburg between 1809 and 1814, with issues in both Russian and German, that first edition with its folio atlas of 105 plates is a major rarity of travel literature. Dutch, English and Italian editions followed, although none contained an atlas of plates. The present first edition in French is the first edition following the original publication to include an atlas of plates. The images are re-engraved versions of images in the original, and includes a portrait of Krusenstern, views and images of natives of the Marquesas, Japan, Sakhalin Island, Kamtchatka, etc., as well as nine maps of various Pacific regions visited. cf. Lada-Mocarski 62; Sabin 38332; Arctic Bibliography 9377; Howes K272, "c;" Borba de Moraes, pp.374-75; Hill 952 (ref); cf. Forbes Hawaii 407. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
