        "Mémoire sur la Fermentation appelée lactique; Memoire sur la Fermentation alcoolique."Paris: Mallet-Bachelier, "1858; 1860".

      "First printings, in the very rare offprint form (first paper <b>inscribed by Pasteur</b>), of these two landmark papers, "often considered the beginning of bacteriology as a modern science, [which constitute] the first demonstration of the connection between a specific fermentation and the activity of a specific microorganism" (Garrison & Morton); "A great milestone in biochemistry" (Neville II, p. 274). "Pasteur's first paper on fermentation contains most of the central theoretical and methodological features of his biological theory of fermentation, in particular the concept of fermentation as a product of the growth of yeast, the idea that air is a source of microscopic yeasts and other micro-organisms, and the notion of specificity, in which each fermentation could be traced to a specific micro-organism" (Dibner). "Pasteur's concept of fermentation as a biological process challenged the chemical theory of fermentation put forth by Liebig, which Pasteur was able to disprove with his experiments on alcoholic and acetic fermentation" (Norman).<br/><br/> <i>Provenance</i>: The earlier paper is inscribed by Pasteur to the French physicist and chemist Pierre-Guillaume-Camille Forthomme (1821-84): "A Monsieur Forthomme, Professeur au lycée de Nancy, souvenir affectueux, L. Pasteur." <br/><br/> "Pasteur's memoir ['Sur la Fermentation appelée lactique'] expressed the basic approach and point of view which informed all of his subsequent work on fermentation. After a historical introduction he began by claiming that "just as an alcoholic ferment exists-namely, brewer's yeast-which is found wherever sugar breaks down into alcohol and carbonic acid-so too there is a special ferment-a lactic yeast-always present when sugar becomes lactic acid" ... Throughout the memoir Pasteur more nearly assumed than proved that lactic yeast "is a living organism, ... that its chemical action on sugar corresponds to its development and organization," and that the nitrogenous substances in the fermenting medium served merely as its food. ". "8vo (219 x 135 mm), pp [1-3] 4-106; [1] 2-15 [1:blank but with manuscript annotations, probably by Forthomme], both offprints bound together in early 20th century cloth, first and final leaf with some browning.

        Broadside. Begins: El General San Martin. Presencié la declaracion de la Independencia de los estados de Chile y el Perù ...

      Weary from ten years of war, sacrifice, and then the politics of the nascent Peruvian republic, Gen. San Martin, liberator of Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, and Peru, here announces his retirement from public life. An Argentine by birth, San Martin's introduction to war happened not in America but in Europe where he was serving in the Spanish army against England, Portugal, and finally France. After the peninsula fell to the French, he returned to America and fought with and soon led one of the main rebel armies. The struggle lasted more than a decade, but on 12 July 1821, he took Lima from the Royalists, saw Peru officially declared independent on the 28th, and was himself named "Protector of Peru" on 3 August. Just about a year later, on 22 September 1822, via this document, he resigned his position and retired permanently from public life and service."The presence of a lucky soldier . . . is feared by newly constituted states; [and] for my part, I am tired of hearing it said that I want to be the sovereign." "Peruvians: I leave you with an established national government; if you repose in it all of your confidence, count on triumph; if you don't, anarchy will devour you." And with that he left Peru, returned to Argentina briefly, then sailed to Europe where he lived in several cities, only once attempting to return to America, but always maintaining a keen interest in the fate of his native Argentina. Searches of WorldCat, NUC, CCILA, COPAC, and the Catálogo Colectivo del Patrimonio Bibliográfico locate two copies worldwide: one in the U.S., and one in Chile. There is a very old unverified report of a copy in the Biblioteca Nacional in Lima.

        Memnon, Antigone und Oedip, v. J. Mayrhofer, und Am Grabe Anselmo's von Claudius. Für eine Singstimme mit Piano-Forte in Musik gesetzt [.] 6tes Werk.

      Vienna, Diabelli und Comp., [1821]. - Oblong folio. 11 pp. Engraved throughout. First edition with Schubert's autograph checkmark ("Sch[ubert] m[anu] p[ropria] 220") on last page and printed dedication to the Austrian theater director Michael Vogl. Much rarer than Schubert's first publication ("Erlkönig"), published the same year: no copy in international auction records. Usually, Schubert's autograph checkmarks on his early works are strongly trimmed in the descenders; in the present copy, however, the ckeckmark is entirely untouched by the binder's knife. In the last copy of Schubert's Opus 6 to appear in the trade (Schneider 282 [1985], 128), the checkmark was almost entirely trimmed away. - The fact that the checkmarks are in Schubert's own hand has been disputed (cf. E. Hilmar, "Anmerkungen zu Schuberts Erstdrucken", in: Florilegium Musicologicum 1988, 145-154); however, Drüner has made a strong case for their authenticity: "The problem is indeed more complicated for opuses 1-7 and 96, and in these cases Hilmar&#146;s refusal is too categorical. His main arguments are not correct [.] It is almost certain that on the occasion of the publication of his opus 1-7, Schubert proudly followed the examples given to him by Johann Nepomuk Hummel, who signed his opuses [.] Hummel and Schubert were pupils of Salieri who taught both of them the highest editorial precision. Therefore, the idea of signing definitely came from Schubert [.]" (Otto Haas, cat. 40 [2003], p. 16). For a comparison of handwriting cf. the paraphs pictured by Drüner on p. 16 (Schubert's hand, identical with ours) and 17 (by another hand). Also cf. the included illustration of Schubert's identical paraph on his Opus 4 ("Brahms himself identifies Schubert's hand on his copy of 'Der Wanderer' [.]", Sotheby's, 17 May 2002, lot 169]. - Clean, entirely untrimmed copy. Extremely rare thus. Deutsch 541, 542, 504. Hirsch IV, 479. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

        Leçons sur le calcul diffcrentiel.Paris: Chez de Bure Frères, 1829.

      First edition, very rare. Following his earlier textbooks, the <i>Cours d'Analyse</i> (1821) and <i>Rcsumc des Leçons</i> (1823), which provided the first rigorous formulation of the calculus of functions of a real variable, Cauchy in this work for the first time treats complex functions of a complex variable, defining their derivatives and extending to them many of the results of the differential calculus of a real variable obtained in the <i>Rcsumc</i>, most notably Taylor's theorem. "The discoveries with which Cauchy's name is most firmly associated in the minds of both pure and applied mathematicians are without doubt his fundamental theorems on complex functions" (DSB). Cauchy also develops here a fully-fledged theory of infinitesimals, in many ways anticipating work of du Bois-Reymond in the late 19th century.<br/><br/> The twenty-three <i>Leçons</i> of the present work present the results on differential calculus from the first part of the <i>Rcsumc</i>, but in much greater detail (and almost three times the length). Most significant, however, is that Cauchy here extends the results from the <i>Rcsumc</i> to the case of complex functions of a complex variable. This begins with the 11th <i>Leçon</i>, in which complex functions of a complex variable are introduced, the next <i>Leçon</i> giving the definition of the derivatives (and differentials) of such functions, and continues with the 13th <i>Leçon</i> which gives the extension of Taylor's theorem to the complex case. Further discussions of complex functions are found throughout the remaining <i>Leçons</i>. It is important to note that, although functions of a complex variable had been considered in earlier works by Cauchy, notably in his <i>Mémoire sur les intégrales définies, prises entre des limites imaginaires</i> (1825), those works had been concerned exclusively with the integration of such functions along paths in the complex plane (in modern terminology), and not on the properties of the functions themselves or their derivatives.. 4to (242 x 186 mm), pp. [iv] ii [2] 289 [3], contemporary half calf, gilt spine lettering, upper part of spine slightly sunned, some light spotting throughout but in general very good, paper label with numbering to spine, top-edge gilt, ex-libris of Henri Viellard to free end-paper, book plate of the Institut Catholique de Paris to front pastedown, first and final text leaf with small rubber stamp of the Institut

        A treatise on the diseases of the chest . . . with a preface and notes by John Forbes, M.D.

      London: T. and G. Underwood, 1821. Laennec, René Théophile Hyacinth (1781-1826). A treatise on the diseases of the chest, in which they are described according to their anatomical characters, and their diagnosis established on a new principle by means of acoustick instruments. Translated by John Forbes (1787-1861). 8vo. [4], vii-xl, [2], [1], 2-437, [3]pp. 8 engraved plates by John Pope Vibert (1797-1865). London: T. and G. Underwood, 1821. Modern half morocco gilt in antique style, in a half morocco drop-back box. Old library stamp almost invisibly removed from margin of title with no loss of text or margins. Plates slightly foxed but a fine copy from the Max Miller collection. Later owner?s bookplate on front pastedown. First Edition in English of Laennec?s De l?Auscultation médiate (1819), printed in an edition of only 500 copies, compared to the total printing of 3600 copies that comprised the two states of the first edition in French. Laennec?s invention of the stethoscope, which he announced in his 1819 treatise, provided the first adequate method for diagnosing diseases of the thorax and represented the greatest advance in physical diagnosis between Auenbrugger?s percussion and Röntgen?s discovery of x-rays. Forbes abridged parts of Laennec?s work, omitted others, and condensed the remainder, reducing it to about half of its original length. Although he greatly underestimated the influence the stethoscope was to have on medicine, Forbes nevertheless was as responsible as anyone else for introducing and popularizing the use of the stethoscope in the English-speaking world. According to a letter from Forbes to Laennec, all 500 copies of the small English printing had been sold by September 1823. This suggests that the initial reception of the stethoscope was slow in England; however, by the time of the second English edition (1827), demand for the instrument had widened exponentially.

        Monuments Anciens et Modernes de l'Hindoustan

      Paris: Didot, 1821. 2 volumes in 3, small folio. (14 7/8 x 10 3/4 inches). Text: half-titles in each volume, folding table in vol. 1, 4pp errata and 2pp list of plates in rear of vol. 2. Atlas: engraved title with a large vignette after Henry Salt, 3 engraved maps hand-colored in outline, 143 engraved plates (12 hand-colored, and including 24 plates after Thomas Daniell). Contemporary French red calf-backed red paper boards, flat spines in six compartments divided by gilt roll tools, lettered in gilt in the second and fourth compartments A beautiful copy of the very rare large-paper first edition of Langles definitive work on India, profusely illustrated and including plates after Thomas Daniell. A contemporary review described this work as follows: "Doubtless it was a vast undertaking to give a complete description of the immense country of Hindostan; to trace its history; to set forth the religion and the manners of its inhabitants; to study and to design its antique monuments and its populous cities: such an undertaking required the united knowledge and talents of the geographer, the philologist, the historian, the philosopher, and the archaeologist. Several estimable artists have already made us acquainted with the picturesque views and the romantic sites of this interesting country, with the various and singular costumes of the Hindoos, and their prodigious monuments. Many learned Indianists have developed the mysteries, till then but imperfectly known, of the Brahmanic theology; and the most celebrated travellers, judicious antiquaries, and well-informed officers, have in almost every part extended their inquiries to the most minute details of topography. However, not one of them has been able to present us with a complete view of the country, whose several parts they have described. Far be it from us to refuse the well-deserved need of praise to the major part of these authors; but one man alone, a man of superior talent, placed in a situation which enabled him to take in with a single glance, to collate, compare, and digest into one body all the materials which had been furnished by so many and such able writers, has succeeded in forming them into one beautiful and symmetrical edifice. M. Langles is the person to whom we allude" (Port Folio, vol. XVI, July to December 1823, p. 252). Langles was the most noted Orientalist in France and served as the keeper of the Oriental manuscripts at the Royal Library. Published in 26 parts beginning in 1813, Brunet cites three issues: regular paper at 15fr per part, papier velin at 24fr per part and grande papier velin at 36fr per part. The illustrations notably include 24 plates after Thomas Daniell, as well as other views of ancient monuments after Forbes and others. The colour plates are largely after Indian miniatures in the Royal Library collection and are richly hand-coloured and heightened with gold. Brunet III, 819-820.

        Curtis's Botanical Magazine... Vol. XLVIII. Being the Sixth of the New Series

      London: printed by Stephen Couchman, published by Sherwood, Neely, & Jones, 1821. Volume 48 only, octavo. (9 1/16 x 5 9/16 inches). 84 hand-coloured engraved plates (numbered from 2189-2272, plates #2189, #2194, #2203, #2208, #2217, #2222, #2231, #2232, #2236, #2245, #2250, #2259 and #2264 are folding), by Weddell, and others? after J. Curtis, P. Syme, W. Herbert and others. Contemporary red half morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, spine gilt A fine representative sample volume from the oldest illustrated botanical periodical still in production. "The reputation of the Magazine has always resided in the accuracy of its portrayal of plants. This pictorial record of garden and greenhouse plants from the temperate and tropical regions of the world has no rival.." (Desmond p.7) William Curtis had witnessed from personal experience that his clients refused to buy folio pictures of unassuming plants (vide. his Flora Londinensis) but he felt that they would subscribe to an octavo work which pictured the showy plants that filled their gardens: from this premise was born the Botanical Magazine in February 1787. The work was immediately successful, was published throughout the 19th and 20th centuries and is still produced to this day. The main glory of the Botanical Magazine has always been the coloured plates. Many of the greatest British botanical illustrators of the last two hundred years have had worked published in this periodical: the majority of the earliest plates are by Sydenham Edwards; other artists who followed in his footsteps include James Sowerby, John Curtis, William Jackson Hooker and, for much of the second half of the 19th century, Walter Hood Fitch. In the 20th century the great tradition was continued by Lilian Snelling, Margaret Stones and others.

        The Natural History of the rarer Lepidopterous Insects of Georgia. Including their systematic characters, the particulars of their several metamorphoses, and the plants on which they feed. Collected from the observations of Mr John Abbot, many years resident in that country, by James Edward Smith

      London: printed by T. Bensley for J. Edwards, Cadell and Davies and J. White, 1821. 2 volumes, folio. (15 7/8 x 12 1/4 inches). Parallel titles and text in French and English. 104 hand-coloured engraved plates by John Harris after Abbot, some heightened with gum-arabic. Expertly bound to style in half calf over contemporary marbled paper covered boards, flat spines in six compartments divided by gilt triple fillets and roll tools, red-brown morocco labels in the second compartments, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt A fine copy of John Abbot's masterpiece: the earliest illustrated monograph devoted to the butterflies and moths of North America. John Abbot was one of the most important and prolific of the early American natural history artists. Born in London in 1751, Abbot developed his interest in natural history and drawing as a child. His curiosity about the natural world was encouraged by his parents who were relatively wealthy (at one time the family library included copies of Mark Catesby's Natural History of Carolina, Florida and the Bahama Islands as well as George Edwards' Natural History of Uncommon Birds and Gleanings of Natural History ). Having received sponsorship from the Royal Society of London and the collectors Thomas Martyn and Dru Drury, Abbot sailed for Virginia in July 1773, with orders for both actual specimens and drawings of the local insects. For the next two years he continued to collect and paint, sending home three insect collections, although only one arrived safely. The loss of these two valuable collections at sea together with the worry over political unrest in Virginia led Abbot to move to Georgia: he settled in St. George Parish (later Burke County), Georgia in December 1775. Abbot traveled widely throughout Georgia devoting his time to the study of the natural flora and fauna. The constant flow of specimen collections and watercolours of insects, and later of birds, ensured that his name became known to many of the foremost natural scientists and collectors of the day, both in America and Europe. Sir James Edward Smith, co-founder and first president of the Linnaean Society of London, recognised Abbot's talents, and responded enthusiastically to Abbot's desire to publish an illustrated work on the butterflies and moths of Georgia, agreeing to edit the work for Abbot. Smith, in the preface to the present work, praised Abbot highly as the first author "since the celebrated Merian", to illustrate and describe the lepidoptera of the American continent scientifically, including both representations of the caterpillars and "the plants on which each insect chiefly feeds." The work is also valuable for the numerous first hand comments and observations that Abbot has added. Like the Botfield copy, this copy was issued circa 1822, with the plates on J. Whatman Turkey Mills wove paper. Abbot's water-colours are amongst the finest natural history illustrations ever made: elegant and scientifically accurate, they rank with those of his famous contemporaries, William Bartram and Alexander Wilson. William Swainson described Abbot as one of the United States' most important natural history artists, as "a most assiduous collector, and an admirable draftsman of insects. [This] work is one of the most beautiful that this or any other country can boast of" (quoted by Sabin). Arnold Arboretum, p. 27; BM(NH) I, p. 2l; Dunthorne 287; cf.

        Entdeckungs-Reise in die Süd-See und nach der Berings-Strasse zur Erforschung einer nordöstlichen Durchfahrt. Unternommen in den Jahren 1815, 1816, 1817, und 1818

      Weimar: Gebrüder Hoffmann, 1821. 3 volumes in one, quarto. (10 5/8 x 8 5/8 inches). 18pp. subscribers list. 6 engraved maps (5 folding), 20 aquatint plates (19 hand-coloured, 4 folding) after Ludovik Choris, Eschscholtz and others, 2 folding letterpress tables. Text uncut. Modern paper-backed blue boards Provenance: Thomas W. Streeter (booklabel, pencil notes; his sale, part VI, Sotheby's Park Bernet, 22 April 1969, lot 3511) Thomas W. Streeter's copy of the first edition, coloured issue of Kotzebue's important second Russian circumnavigation: a cornerstone work of Pacific exploration with important descriptions of Hawaii, California and Alaska. Kotzebue's expedition in the ship Rurick, sponsored by Count Romanzoff, sailed from Kronstadt at the end of July 1815, rounded Cape Horn and visited Chile, Easter Island, the Marshall Islands, Hawaii, and the North American coast, making an unsuccessful search for a northwest passage. The return was made via New Archangel, California, Hawaii, Marianas, Philippines, and St. Helena. This famous narrative is particularly important for its descriptions of Alaska and California (including the first scientific account of the California state flower, the Golden Poppy). Kotzebue describes the missions in California, and the work is considered one of the most important early accounts of that state. The work is of great importance in the early exploration of Alaska. "Rich in early original source material on Alaska ... Kotzebue belonged to that group of outstanding Russian naval officers of the first half of the nineteenth century, which included Kruzenshtern, Golovnin, Lisianskii, Sarychev, and others..." (Lada-Mocarski). "It was on this voyage that Kotzebue discovered Kotzebue Sound in Alaska, thinking for a time as he sailed east that he had found the long sought north-east passage" (Streeter). The Hawaiian portion is extensive and contains important observations on life and customs during the reign of Kamehameha I, whose famous "red vest" portrait by Choris is one of the illustrations. The account of Albert von Chamisso, the expedition naturalist, includes important information about flora and fauna, as well as the Indians and the work of the missionaries. There is also a comparative vocabulary table for the languages of some of the islanders. As a record of historical import, and as a collection of significant maps and beautiful plates, this work is one of the prime desiderata of Pacific voyages. Three distinct issues of the first edition were published: eighty-eight copies were produced on very fine "Velin papier" with the plates hand coloured (issue A); an issue on regular hand-made laid paper, of which a limited number of copies have coloured plates (issue B); and an issue on laid paper with the portrait plates coloured, but the folding plates in sepia aquatint (issue C). The present copy of the work is a fine example of the second issue with the plates hand coloured. This fine copy of Kotzebue appeared at auction in part six of the famed sale of the Thomas W. Streeter collection, realizing $550 in 1969.

Notre fête est manquée, à mon grand chagrin. Ah ! quelle vie ! J&#146;ai perdu ma journée d&#146;hier à courir après une passe pour moi-même, par Calonne, par Le Moniteur, impossible. Alors je me suis dit : 60 francs à dépenser et trois jours à perdre dans un moment où je travaille au Houzard et à Wagner. Envoyez l&#146;argent à Duranty. Ainsi le 15, je ferai avec vous ce que nous aurions fait demain, la mise en ordre des Fleurs, et causer des moyens sérieux de diminuer ma dette. Guérissez-vous bien et pensez à moi. C.B. ». À cette époque, Charles Baudelaire se consacre à trois projets d&#146;écriture. Le premier étant l&#146;adaptation théâtrale de la nouvelle de Paul de Molènes (1821-1862), « Les Souffrances d&#146;un Houzard » (nouvelle qui était parue en juillet 1851 dans la Revue de Paris). Baudelaire s&#146;était lié avec cet écrivain-soldat pour qui il vouait une véritable amitié. Le projet de Baudelaire concernant son "Houzard" ne fut jamais achevé Le second projet était son étude sur Wagner (Richard Wagner et Tannhäuser à Paris, 1861). Baudelaire et de nombreux artistes (Théophile Gautier, Berlioz entre autres) avaient assisté le 25 janvier 1860 au concert de Wagner à Paris, salle Ventadour. Baudelaire était tombé littéralement amoureux des &#156;uvres alors jouées par le compositeur allemand. Malgré les réactions mitigées, voir moqueuses dans la presse, Baudelaire s&#146;était empressé d&#146;écrire à Wagner pour lui témoigner toute son admiration (le poète parlait de « perte de conscience » à l&#146;écoute de Tannhäuser et de « plus grande jouissance musicale » qu&#146;il n&#146;avait jamais éprouvée). Son étude paraitra dans La Revue Européenne le 1er avril 1861 (éditée par la suite en plaquette chez Dentu). Enfin la troisième &#156;uvre dont il question dans cette lettre est bien entendu la réimpression de son recueil Les Fleurs du Mal (publié une première fois en 1857). Cette seconde édition paraitra en février 1861 chez Poulet-Malassis. Cette édition qui supprime les six poèmes censurées (en août 1857) fut enrichie de trente-cinq nouveaux poèmes et tirée à 1.500 exemplaires. En mai 1861, Baudelaire cèdera à son éditeur (et à son beau-frère Eugène de Broise) le droit de reproduction exclusif de ses &#156;uvres littéraires.

L'ouvrage comprend 2 tableaux repliés, 7 cartes gravées sur cuivre dont 6 dépliantes, ainsi 20 que planches dont 19 coloriées à la main, gravées à l'aquatinte d'après les dessins de Louis Choris et Johann Friedrich von Eschscholtz entre autres, soit : 4 portraits d'indigènes, 4 vues à double pages, dont une scène d'intérieur, et 11 planches de papillons. Texte en lettres gothiques (Fraktur). Édition originale du Voyage dans l'océan du sud et au détroit de Béring, première expédition scientifique du navigateur russe Otto von Kotzebue dans les mers du Sud. Elle fut financée par le comte Romanzoff (Nikolaï Roumiantsev) ; à bord du Rurik, Kotzebue (1787-1846), accompagné de savants parmi lesquels le poète et naturaliste Adelbert von Chamisso, navigua de Kronstadt vers Copenhague puis Plymouth, Teneriffe et de là vers le Brésil, le Chili, puis Kamchatka. De là, il découvre le golfe qui porte son nom, passe le Détroit de Béring à l'été 1816, explore la côte nord de l'Amérique et navigue vers les Îles Sandwich et vers les îles de la Micronésie. L'expédition de Kotzebue contribua de manière essentielle à la connaissance de l'Alaska, de la Californie d'Hawai et de la Micronésie. En Polynésie, il revendiqua la découverte de trois îles, Tikei, Takapoto et Tikehau. Pendant la première moitié du XIXe siècle, de nombreux grands voiliers effectuèrent le trajet entre Saint-Pétersbourg et les territoires du Nord-Est ; on a appelé cette période « l'ère des circumnavigations russes », inaugurée en 1803-1806 par l'amiral Krusenstern (1770-1845). C'est d'après les instructions de ce dernier que Kotzebue réalisa ses deux grands voyages (le second en 1823-1826), dont le but était d'établir un Atlas de la mer du Sud qui se substituerait aux cartes plus anciennes, notamment à celles d'Arrowsmith, devenues obsolètes. Les deux premiers volumes de cette publication décrivent l'itinéraire du Rurik : ils contiennent, à la fin, une analyse de l'amiral Krusenstern lui-même, des remarques sur les maladies qui ont touché l'équipage durant les trois ans de la traversée par Eschscholtz, embarqué comme médecin de bord. Le volume III, contient les remarques d'Adelbert von Chamisso (1781-1838) sur l'histoire naturelle et le langage, avec un vocabulaire comparatif. La même année, le poète, Français d'origine émigré en Prusse après la Révolution, publia à son tour son journal de voyage ; Reise um die Welt : Tagebuch.

      Berlin, 24. November 1821. - 1 S. auf Doppelblatt. Mit eigenh. Umschlag mit Lacksiegel und Beilageschreiben. An den Wirtschafts-Amtmann Stenzel auf seinem Gut Erdmannsdorf bei Hirschberg in Schlesien, das er gegen das Gut Mittel-Kauffung eingetauscht hatte: "[.] Der vormalige Wirthschafts Amtmann Geisler hat einliegendes Schreiben an mich gerichtet. Ich fürchte fast, daß er sich übereilt und obgleich [.] er meinen Wirthschafts-Anordnungen sich nicht gefügt und durch seinen Widerwillen gegen die Wechselwirthschaft mich in Schaden und Verdruß gebracht hat, so will ich doch mich seiner annehmen. Ich habe ihm den Gerichtschreiberposten verheißen [.] Bis dieses aber in Erfüllung geht, möchte ich gern für seinen Unterhalt und Beschäftigung sorgen [.] In dem jetzigen Winterhalbjahr aber wäre es wohl besser, den Geisler die Schreibergeschäfte besorgen zu lassen, und zwar um so mehr, da Geisler das Gut und die Einsassen kennt. Diese Maasregel ist zugleich eine Ersparnis für mich, und eine Wohltat dem Geisler. Der Wirthschaftsschreiber Graaf hat mich um eine Beihülfe zu seinen Kurkosten gebeten [.]" - Der beiliegende Brief von Geisler (dat. Erdmannsdorf, 4. I. 1822) kann nicht das von Gneisenau erwähnte Schreiben sein. Geisler bittet um Schuldenerlaß für einen jungen Mann namens Rüffer. - Die im Brief erwähnte Fruchtwechselwirtschaft nach dem Vorbild der englischen Landwirtschaft war von Thaer ab ca. 1800 propagiert worden, setzte sich aber nur langsam gegen die Dreifelderwirtschaft durch. - Umschlag leicht fleckig, sonst gut erhalten.

        Analyse du jeu des échecs : avec une nouvelle notation abrégée, et quarante-deux planches où se trouve figurée la situation du jeu pour les renvois et les fins de partie. Nouvelle Édition. A laquelle on a joint la figure et la marche des différentes pièce

      Chez J Johnston, libraire-editeur. Imprimerie de Lafourcarde, Philadelphia 1821 - 150 pages with 42 color imprints in green, black and red and one wood cult illustrations of chess piece. Small octavo (7" x 4 1/2") bound in quarter leather with raised spine bands and gilt lettering to spine. (Hagedorn: 6; Bibliotheca van der Linde-Niemeijeriana:457) Later edition of Phildor's work first published in 1749. Fiske noted that the paper, typography and general appearance of the work prove to have been printed in Euripe and probably Belgium. But despite its spurious imprint, Hagedorn felt that it required inclusion in his bibliography of Chess in America to 1859. He goes on to suggest that the problems of its pedigree have yet to be solved. America had at that time achieved no fame in the chess world that would make a book from the United States attractive to foreign players. It does not seem to be based on any known American work. He suggest that the answer might be found in the publishing records of early nineteenth century Belgium. In 1736 at the age of 10, Francois-Andre was exposed to chess by the musicians who played chess during spells of inactivity. Cards were forbidden to pass the time, so chess was played. He learned the game by watching the band members play. He later visited the Cafe de la Regence in Paris and spent much of his time playing chess there. In 1737, at the age of 11, his first music composition, a religious piece, was played before King Louis XV. He left the Chapel Royal choir in 1740 when his voice changed. In 1740 he went to Paris where he earned a living by copying music and giving music lessons. In 1741 Philidor was being instructed by M. de Kermur, Sire de Legal (1702-1792), the leading French chess player. Legal initially gave Philidor rook odds. For the next three years Kermur taught Philidor until Philidor was too strong for his teacher. By 1750 Philidor was considered the strongest player in France, England, and the Netherlands. The French Ambassador, the Duke of Mirepoix, invited Philidor for his weekly chess dinners. In 1751 Philidor left England for Prussia, playing before King Frederick (Frederick the Great) at Potsdam. He then visited Berlin where he played 3 blindfold games simultaneously, winning them all. He then returned to England. In November 1754 he returned to France after being gone for 9 years. He started composing music again. He did not return to England until 1772. He applied unsuccessfully for the post of court composer at Versailles. A rumor had started that nobody could be a chess master and compose good music, so his church music was not really his own. His church music was not accepted by the French royalty because Philidor added an Italian influence to it, so he turned to comedy opera. In 1755 he beat Legal in a chess match at the Cafe de la Regence. On February 13, 1760, at age 33, he married Angelique Richer (1736-1809). He had 5 sons and 2 daughters with her. Condition: Some rubbing to extremities, some light foxing, gift inscription on front end paper else a very attractive copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      1821 1243 - A Paris, de l'imprimerie de P. Didot, 1821, , 2 volumes in-folio, [4]-4-XII-268 pages + [4]-251-[3] pages, 3 cartes aux limites colorées, 1 tableau dépliant 143 planches, soit 6 en bistre, 11 en couleurs et 126 en noir (39 au tome I et 87 au tome II), demi-veau fauve, dos lisses et filetés, Première édition en librairie, très rare ; les Monuments anciens et modernes de l'Hindoustan ont paru à l'origine en 26 livraisons, publiées à partir de décembre 1811. L'ouvrage ouvre sur la préface datée de septembre 1821. Complet de toutes ses planches, dont plusieurs (tome I) calquées d'après des miniatures indiennes, des plans et des vues, 24 étant gravées d'après l'artiste britannique Thomas Daniell (1749-1840). 11 planches sont rehaussées en couleurs (les plans des pagodes de Siringam et de Djembakrichna sont en noir dans notre exemplaire). Avec les 3 cartes de l'Inde : l'Hindoustan et ses divisions politiques en 1812 ; au temps de l'empereur Aureng Zeyb (Aurangzeb) en 1707 ; et au temps de la mort de l'empereur Akbar en 1605 (et non 1805 comme écrit dans le cartouche). Louis-Mathieu Langlès (1763 1824) étudia les langues orientales &#150; l'arabe et le persan &#150; à l'École Centrale. Il fonda l'École spéciale des langues orientales, dont il fut le premier directeur de 1796 à 1824, et où il enseigna le persan et le malais. Il fut à la fois éditeur &#150; on lui doit la publication du dictionnaire mandchou-français de Bertin &#150; et bibliophile averti ; il réunit une bibliothèque des plus complètes de son temps sur la géographie et les langues de l'Orient. À l'exception de quelques contributions et de quelques articles, Langlès ne publia que très peu en tant qu'auteur ; sa monographie des monuments de l'Hindoustan est le seul ouvrage qu'il ait lui-même signé. Rousseurs éparses. Une galerie de vers en marge de quelques feuillets au tome I, sans atteinte au texte. Brunet, t. III, 819. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An Essay on the Production of Wealth.

      London: Longman, Hurst [& 3 others in London],, 1821. Octavo (134 × 212 mm). Bound in modern half tan morocco, marbled sides, brown label to spine lettered gilt, motifs to spine gilt, marbled sides. Former library copy with the withdrawal stamp of Rosenburg Library, Galveston. Occasional light spotting to contents, an excellent copy. First edition of this important work by one of the first economists to attribute the production of wealth to the joint action of three instruments of production: land, labour, and capital. Spiegel writes that "Torrens's theory of value contains both a critique, one of the earliest, of Ricardo's labor theory of value, and as a positive contribution a value theory of his own. He denied the validity of the labour theory value in a multifactor economy and, as Lauderdale had done before and as Bailey was to do again shortly, refused to participate in the search of an invariable measure of value. To him, value is a more relation between goods, not between the quantities of labor embodied in them but between the quantities of capital, including the outlay for wages, invested in their production. If competition equates the rates of profit throughout the economy, then, so Torrens argued, goods must exchange in proportion to the capital invested in them, with an adjustment to take account of the different durability of capital" (The Growth of Economic Thought, p. 347). Torrens (1780??-1864) was born in Ireland; he wrote around ninety books and pamphlets on economics, politics, and social questions, including Thoughts on the Catholic Question (1808) in which he supported Catholic emancipation, and An Essay on the External Corn Trade (1815), in which he "discovered the principle of comparative advantage in international trade and shared with Ricardo and Malthus the discovery of the law of diminishing returns" (ODNB).

        The Topography of Athens with some Remarks on its Antiquities.

      London: John Murray, 1821 - Octavo . Original green cloth-backed drab boards, paper label to the spine. Boards somewhat rubbed and with some damp-staining at the top edges, spine sunned and the paper label chipped, pale browning to the text-block, occasional spotting, hinges carefully repaired, spine relined, but overall a very good copy, judiciously restored and well-preserved in the original boards. Engraved frontispiece and 8 folding plates. Half-title bound in. First edition. "The basis for modern topographical and archaeological studies of the city. A very important work" (Blackmer). Trained at the Royal Military Academy, Leake served for three years on the garrison at Antigua before joining the British military mission to the Ottoman empire in 1799. He accompanied an Anglo-Turkish expedition overland to Egypt in 1800, seeing action at the battle of al-Khanka and the siege of Alexandria in 1801, before returning home via Greece in 1802. Between 1805 and 1810 he travelled extensively through Greece and the Levant, acting as liaison with Ali Pasha in an attempt to influence the vizier to support Britain's actions against the French in the region; "The mission was not a complete success: increasingly, Leake felt his life was threatened by Ali Pasha and eventually he left" (ODNB). During Leake's residence in Greece he met Byron who found him: "taciturn', ill-dressed and quite unlike an Englishman of this world". Back in London, "Colonel" Leake as he was universally known, was a frequent contributor to learned journals, eight of his papers appeared in the Classical Journal between 1814 and 1822, and twenty in the Transactions of the Royal Society of Literature between 1829 and 1851, and this together with the publication of nine books, including the present, secured him a place, despite his "singular modesty", as "a well-respected member of the unseen college of intellectuals, politicians, and wealthy individuals which flourished in early nineteenth-century London". Leake's core interests were the modern Greek language, Greek topography and numismatics, but overall "one cannot overestimate Leake's importance as an observer of the state of Greece in the 19th century, and the value of his descriptions of the country" (Atabey). Surprisingly uncommon in commerce, particularly so in boards, the Atabey copy, in contemporary calf bound without the half-title, made £2500 hammer in 2002. Atabey 689; Blackmer 971; Weber I, 127.

        MEMOIRS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION, FROM ITS COMMENCEMENT TO THE YEAR 1776, INCLUSIVE; AS RELATING TO THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA: AND OCCASIONALLY REFERRING TO THE STATES OF NORTH-CAROLINA AND GEORGIA

      Charleston, 1821. Publisher's blue paper boards, rebacked at a later date in paper. Boards bumped on corners. Very good, untrimmed. Provenance: Arthur Middleton, Jr. (signature on front endpaper); Library of Congress duplicate (inked stamps and book label). A basic source for the history of the American Revolution in the southern colonies, based largely on material the author inherited from his father, William Henry Drayton, who was an active leader of the Revolution. The author served twice as governor of South Carolina, and was deeply interested in its history from an early age. This history of the early stages of the Revolution in South Carolina was the product of his retirement and published a year before his death. It remains one of the standard works. One of the maps shows forts Sullivan and Moultrie, while the other shows the positions in the 1776 campaign in the Carolina upcountry against the Cherokees. This copy belonged to Arthur Middleton, Jr. (1795-1853), the grandson and namesake of South Carolina signer of the Declaration of Independence, Arthur Middleton, one of the first Americans to travel as an artist in Italy and paint the Italian countryside.

        Historia completa das Inquisições de Italia, Hespanha, e Portugal. Ornada com sete estampas analogas aos principaes objectos que nella se tratão.

      Lisbon, na Nova Impressão Magrense, 1821. - 4°, contemporary tree sheep (front joint weak with bottom half splitting; other minor binding wear), flat spine richly gilt with black morocco lettering piece, gilt letter, binding edges milled, text-block edges sprinkled red, marbled endleaves, silk place marker. Some waterstaining in lower margins of title -page of preliminary leaves. Light browning in first 35 leaves. Overall in good to very good condition. x, 294 pp., 7 engraved plates. *** First Edition in Portuguese, considerably more difficult to obtain than the second, published the following year. Plates depict victims of the Inquisition before and after sentencing, in the torture chamber and at an auto da fé. There is also a plate showing the Inquisition removing the sentence of excommunication from D. João IV, and another titled "Filippe III Rei d'Hespanha" (i.e. Filipe III of Portugal, who was Filipe IV of Spain at the time Portugal declared independence in 1640?), in which the Spanish King consults with inquisitors in a palace while the fires of the Inquisition can be seen through an open door. This is an unacknowledged translation of Lavallé's @Histoire des Inquisitions religieuses d'Italie, d'Espagne, et du Portugal, first published in Paris, 1809. An English translation appeared in London, 1816. The work was placed on the Index in 1825. Innocêncio da Rocha Galvão, the translator, a native of Bahia, was elected to the General Assembly for Bahia in 1836 and acclaimed President of State in the 1837 revolution.*** Sacramento Blake III, 281-2. Innocêncio III, 192: erroneously dating the first edition to 1822 (and transcribing the title of the second edition, calling it the first); see also p. 413, attributing the translation to João Maria Rodrigues de Castro, a native of the Island of São Miguel in the Azores, and maintaining only the reference to the 1822 edition; X, 85?6, attributing the translation to Rocha Galvão, still without any mention of the 1821 edition. Gonçalves Rodrigues, @A tradução em Portugal 3744. Palau 271843: with a list of the plates; however, Palau does not mention the plate captioned "Procissão de um Auto da Fé" (taking place in the Rossio?); listed instead is "Auto da Fé em frente do Paço da Ribeira" which appears only in the 1822 edition, with the title "Representação de um Auto da Fé."

      New York, 1821. Modern cloth, photocopied labels affixed to front cover and spine. Leaves cockled and lightly stained from dampness; some spotting from mildew, heavier in front and rear leaves. Good. Third edition, with new material. The author, Grant Thorburn, was a Scottish immigrant who began his career in New York selling flowers and seed.

Thorburn retired in 1834 and devoted the remainder of his life to writing memoirs and reminiscences of New York life in the early 1800s. The present volume is devoted primarily to the cultivation of vegetables and fruits; it also contains an advertisement and other text related to Thorburn's establishment.
