        Darstellung der Königlich Preussischen Cavallerie

      1821. |~||~||~|PRUSSIAN CAVALRY JÜGEL, Johann Friedrich. Darstellung der Königlich Preussischen Cavallerie. [2] pp (title and contents). Illustrated with 41 figures on 37 coloured aquatint plates cut by Lieder und Krüger after original watercolours by Friedrich Jügel. Folio, 405 x 310 mm, loose in original publisher's paste-board wrapper, integrating the original issue's cover. Preserved in a modern half-linen box. Berlin: L. W. Wittich, 1821. |~||~||~||~||~| Extremely rare series of these brilliantly coloured, highly decorative aquatint plates by Friedrich Jügel. Thirty-four of the numbered and captioned colour plates depict single horsemen in front of a low horizon, including: Garde du Corps, Cuirassiers regiments, Garde-Dragonets, Dragonet regiments, Gendarmes, Hussars, etc. Johann Friedrich Jügel (1772-1833) was a professor of the art of copper engraving at the Royal Prussian Academy of Arts in Berlin. Jügel studied under Chodowiecki at the Berlin Academy. He was responsible for a large output of both graphic work and reproductive graphic work during the turbulent political events in the Napoleonic era. Jügel also produced a number of portraits, topographical views and architectural buildings, some after Schinkel's designs. Jügel's original watercolours are preserved at the Army Library in Berlin and have been used by Graphische Kunstanstalt Jütte of Leipzig and other publishers to reprint this superb set of military costume plates. However, none of the reprints come close to the expressiveness of these original impressions. The value of Jügel's Prussian military costume prints lies in the unusually detailed depiction of the uniforms, of the gear, and of the weapons. Other uniform series showing the Prussian army remained for the most part uncoloured and many details have been left out or left unclear. Slight wear to spine of paper wrapper. A complete set in excellent condition, of great rarity. Lipperheide 2162. Colas 1866. Hiler 488.

        Rudiments of Tamul Grammar:

      London: J. M. Richardson,, 1821. combining with the Rules of Kodun Tamul, or the Ordinary Dialect, an Introduction to Shen Tamul, or the Elegant Dialect, of the Language. Quarto. Original blue-grey boards, drab brown spine, paper label, untrimmed. Folding letterpress table of the Tamil alphabet. Neat ownership inscription and book label on front pastedown, some wear to binding but an excellent tall copy in the original boards, largely unopened. First edition, scarce: Copac locates only 7 copies at British and Irish institutional libraries (British Library, London Library, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Oxford, BLRPS, SOAS). This appears to be the first Tamil grammar in English that was not a direct translation of another Western grammar. In his Preface, Anderson mentions using several grammars (some in manuscript versions) by the Italian Jesuit priest Constanzo Beschi (1680-1742) and acknowledges the assistance of Benjamin Babington, who himself published a translation of Beschi's work in 1822. Robert Anderson is described on the title page as "of the Madras Civil Service" and as assistant professor of oriental languages at the East India Company's College.

        First report of the Directors of the School of Arts of Edinburgh,

      for the education of mechanics in such branches of physical science as are of practical application in their several trades.A foundation document in the origins of Heriot-Watt University which sprang organically, as it were, from this, the world's first Mechanics Institute. The first Directors of the Edinburgh School of Arts included the inspirational Leonard Horner, together with such heavyweights as David Brewster, James Jardine, James Pillans, William Playfair, and James Skene. Horner was the secretary and it is likely that it was he who wrote the present report.The mission statement incorporated in this first report is worth quoting: "The School of Arts of Edinburgh took its origin from an accidental conversation in the shop of Mr. Bryson, watchmaker, in March 1821. To a question, whether young men brought up in the trade of watch making received any mathematical education, Mr. Bryson replied, that it is seldom, if ever, the case; that they daily experience the effects of the want of this instruction, but the expence and the usual hours of masters who teach mathematics, put it out of the power of working tradesmen to obtain it. It was suggested, that it might be very possible to devise some plan by which such branches of science as would be useful to mechanics in the exercise of their trade, might be taught at convenient hours, and at an expence which would be within their reach; for an institution of this description had long existed at Glasgow, and had been attended with very beneficial effects".And the Prospectus accordingly declared that "This Association [i.e. 'School of Arts, for the better Education of the Mechanics of Edinburgh'] has been formed for the purpose of enabling industrious tradesmen to become acquainted with such of the principles of mechanics, chemistry, and other branches of science, as are of practical application in their several trades, that they may possess a more thorough knowledge of their business, acquire a greater degree of skill in the practice of it, and be led to improvement with a greater security of support ......".The Report provides a full descriptive account of the staff and students, the syllabuses of the various courses, and, of course, a list of benefactors.

Like Sir Richard Burton on his visit to Mecca many years later, Lyon wore Arab dress and having learned fluent Arabic, he managed to blend in with the inhabitants of North Africa. His expedition was not a success in terms of achieving its stated goals, but still provided useful information on the isolated parts of North Africa he visited.

        Amarynthus, the Nympholept: a pastoral drama, in three acts. With other poems

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, & Brown, 1821. First edition. xii, 232, 12pp of publisher's advertisements, dated October 1820. 1 vols. 8vo. Calf backed marbled boards, with the original paper spine label pasted onto the final endleaf, top edge gilt, others uncut. Half title shows some repair, otherwise a fine copy. A large uncut copy of the first edition of Smith's first book. Horace Smith, a stock broker, and his brother James were members of the London literary scene that included Leigh Hunt, John Keats, and Percy Shelley. Smith and Shelley were close friends and the pair entered a sonnet writing contest sponsored by The Examiner on the statue of Rameses II in the British Museum, resulting in Shelley's famous poem 'Ozymandias'. Smith's own result of the contest, 'On a Stupendous Leg of Granite, Discovered Standing by itself in the Deserts of Eqypt, with the Inscription inserted below,' appears here on page 213. Smith served as a financial agent to Shelley, leading the latter to ask Leigh Hunt, 'is it not odd, that the only truly generous person I ever knew, who had money to be generous with, should be a stockbroker?' (DNB).

        Veduta di porzione degli avanzi dell'Ambulacro del piano terra nel Colosseo

      Rome.. 1821.. Copperplate engraving, 18 1/4 x 15 1/4 inches on sheet size 30 1/4 x 20 1/2. Light scattered foxing, mainly in outer margins, a few 1/4 inch tears to outer edges and chip to upper left corner of sheet (not affecting image), dampstain to upper left margin (outside plate area), pieces of adhesive tape along verso of right edge (not visible from front), soft undulations to paper. A very good impression. Ground level view of a portion of the remains of the Colosseum. This impressive engraving by Luigi Rossini (1790-1857) is from the Le Antichita Romane series, depicting the antiquities of Rome and environs. Carrying on the tradition of Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778) and himself an architect, Rossini's prints celebrated the Classical Tradition and appealed to the well-to-do tourists on the Grand Tour and to architects and designers. The engravings powerfully evoke the glories of Ancient Rome, while also providing the modern viewer with glimpses of this magnificent city in the early 19th century. .

        Manuscript - Court Transcripts - Counterfeit Paper Currency

      Indiana, 1821. Charlestown, Clark County, Indiana, 1821-1822. Three (3) detailed manuscript transcripts of the proceedings of the Circuit Court penned by the clerk court, pertaining to a trial with two defendants charged with making and using counterfeit paper currency, and the ongoing search for the elusive accused men who fail to appear at numerous adjourned hearings. Unusual with the signatures of American politicians J. S. Simonson and John Carr, as well as a hand drawn sketch illustration of the fraudulent bank note. Folio. 2 single leafs, 1 double leaf, each with clerk's filing annotations to verso, one of which outlines trial costs. Some age-toning and chips to extremities, otherwise in very good condition, easily legible and retaining a strong impression. Signatures on these documents include these, among others: John Carr - military general and later Member of the US House of Representatives J.S. Simonson - army captain and Member of the Indiana House of Representatives Isaac Shelby - Court Clerk and earlier felon charged with manstealing Amos Goodwin - who was a private under Colonel George Rogers Clark a few years earlier in the Illinois campaign of the American Revolutionary War Trial: April 1821 to November 1822. Defendants: William L.W.W. Love, Issac Galland A rather prolonged trial due to the evasiveness of the primary defendant this case consists of a fine of $50 imposed by the State of Indiana, after having charged both Galland and Lowe for the crime of producing and passing a counterfeit 50 cent note to a James Shockley two years earlier. The $50, if ever collected, would be granted to a public seminary school. Alas, the final annotation, three and a half years after the crime, states that the primary accused is unfound, and his accomplice is not mentioned. The earliest document, April 1821 finds both parties "Guilty of Forgery Contrary to the Form of the Statute... to the great displeasure of Almighty God..." Accordingly, they are to be sentenced on the 16th day of February 1821, but neither can be found and neither appears on their own accord for the set hearings. Finally, a note from the November term 1822 states that Love is a "non-resident and cannot be found in my bailiwick." Excerpts from the manuscripts: "... Isaac Galland late of said County laborer, and William L.W.W. Love late of said County laborer... did feloniously, wickedly, and falsely make, forge and counterfeit, and did each aid and assist willingly in falsely making, forging and counterfeiting a certain bank note purporting to be a note of fifty cents on the branch of the State bank of Indiana at Veray... with the intent to defraud the president and directors of the bank of Vincennes..." "To the Sheriff of Clark County... by adjournment on Saturday the 21st day of April 1821 came William L.W.W. Love in open court and acknowledged himself to owe to the State of Indiana the sum of Fifty Dollars, to be levied of his goods and chattels and tenements for the use of a Public Seminary of Learning... then next ensuing, which was the 2nd Monday in August 1821, then and there to answer to those things that might be objected against him in an Indictment to pass one counterfeit bill or ticket on the Bank of Nevay... having altogether failed to appear... witness Isaac Shelby, clerk of our said court... this 11th day of May 1822." End excerpts. In the 1830s Indiana's Washington County Circuit Court docket was replete with indictments for perjury, passing counterfeit money and having in possession counterfeiter's tools, assault and battery with intent to kill, larceny mayhem, manslaughter and murder. In September 1831, Gilbert Hyatt was sentenced to seven years imprisonment in the penitentiary for passing counterfeit money, and having in his possession counterfeiting apparatus. By 1862, the New York Times estimated that 80% of the banknotes circulating in America at that time were counterfeit. John S. Simonson (1796-1881) was a colonel in the US Army and a Member of the Indiana House of Representatives. He served with the army during the War of 1812, was honorably discharged in 1814, and subsequently moved to Charlestown, Indiana. After serving in the state Senate from 1828 to 1830, Simonson farmed and manufactured flour. In 1841 he was elected to the Indiana House of Representatives and became its speaker in 1845. The following year President James K. Polk appointed Simonson captain of the mounted riflemen of the United States Army, a position he held through the Mexican War. The University of Texas at Austin holds a collection of Simonson's papers and journals. John Carr (1793-1845) was a U.S. Representative from Indiana. He lived in Clark County from 1806 and joined William Henry Harrison's army during Tecumseh's War and fought in the Battle of Tippecanoe in 1811. He was appointed lieutenant in a company of United States Rangers, authorized by an act of Congress for defense of western frontiers, in the War of 1812. He later became a Brigadier General and Major General of the Indiana Militia which he served in until his death. He served as clerk of Clark County from 1824 until 1830. He also served as a presidential elector for Andrew Jackson and John C. Calhoun in 1824. Carr was elected as a Jacksonian to the 22nd, 23rd, and 24th Congresses serving from (March 4, 1831 until March 3, 1837). While in the United States House of Representatives he served as chairman of the Committee on Private Land Claims during the 24th Congress. He was elected as a Democrat to the 26th congress and served from 1839 to 1841. He died in Charlestown, Indiana, January 20, 1845. Isaac Shelby was a recorder and court clerk in Clark County. Not above the law, as he may have hoped, he was charged with manstealing in 1817. His brother Evan was first a Clark County Clerk, and then a County Judge between 1811-1813. Counterfeiting of currency in America has its roots in Rochester, New York, as early the 1790s when an estimated three quarters of British coin money in America was in fact light-weight counterfeit production. American State and Spanish coins were also counterfeited, but to a lesser degree. The U.S. Mint first began producing circulating coins in 1793, but it took over fifty years for them to produce a sufficient medium of exchange to keep businesses supplied and the economy running smoothly. Into this breach stepped the counterfeiter to do his civic duty. Counterfeiting quickly expanded into the Midwest. In the early 1850s, Archibald McGregor, Clinton Barnes, and Thomas Janes moved their counterfeiting enterprise from Monroe County, New York, to Elkhart, Indiana. Due to the shortage, an early merchant would do business with some counterfeit money or he would simply lose business. The first suspected counterfeiter from Rochester was its first white settler, Ebenezar Allen. In 1811, he was living across the border in Canada where he was arrested and charged, only to be acquitted by the British/Canadian court on the eve of the War of 1812. Until the 1850s any bank in New York State could print and issue its own paper currency. In Rochester alone sixteen banks issued the minimum $1, $5, $10, and $20 bills, thus sixty-four different notes were possible from our city banks alone. Notes from neighboring villages and nearby cities were also circulated. The situation was ideal for the counterfeiter. Rochester seems to have been a center for passing and manufacturing counterfeit monies; from 1821-62 as many as 107 arrests were made, twenty-five percent of these between 1857 and 1859, a period of economic recession. Of that number only six were women. The Secret Service Division was created on July 5, 1865 in Washington, D.C., to suppress counterfeit currency. Chief William P. Wood was sworn in by Secretary of the Treasury Hugh McCulloch. Anti-counterfeiting measures for producing currency did not begin in the US until well into the twentieth century, decades later than many countries.. Very Good.

        Fünf Kokotten und drei Männer in einem Raum mit einem Ofen und einem Tisch mit Stühlen.

      - Feder und Pinsel in Braun, bräunlich, rötlich und grünlich laviert, über Bleistift, auf bräunlichem dünnem Velin. 16,1:26,7 cm. Verso: Zwei Bleistiftskizzen eines Mannes mit Zylinder. Rechte obere Ecke restauriert, im ganzen nicht ganz frisch. Provenienz: Privatbesitz, New York. Nach einer militärischen Ausbildung nahm Constantin Guys bereits im Alter von 18 Jahren an den Griechischen Befreiungskriegen (1821-1829) teil und trat 1827 einem Dragonerregiment bei. Um 1830 gelang ihm sein künstlerischer Durchbruch und er machte sich einen Namen als Zeichner der bürgerlichen Gesellschaft des französischen Zweiten Kaiserreiches, vor allem als Chronist des modernen Pariser Lebens. Anschließend folgten Reisen in den Orient und längere Aufenthalte in London und Paris, wo er als Kriegszeichner und Korrespondent (u.a. während des Krimkrieges 1854-1856) für verschiedene englische und französische Zeitungen (z.B. Illustrated London News) arbeitete. In Paris, wo er sich schließlich 1860 endgültig niederließ, pflegte er u.a. freundschaftliche Kontakte zu dem Schriftsteller Charles Baudelaire, der im übrigen Guys’ Werk 1863 in einem seiner wichtigsten Aufsätze besonders lobte, zu dem Maler und Zeichner H. Daumier (1808-1879) und dem Fotografen, Schriftsteller und Zeichner F. Nadar (1820-1910). 1885 verlor Guys allerdings bei einem tragischen Unfall beide Beine. Deshalb verbrachte er die letzten Lebensjahre wohl auch aus Armut in einem Hospital.

Vorzeichnung, möglicherweise gedacht für eine Veröffentlichung in einer Zeitschrift.. Zur Beamtenlaufbahn bestimmt, studierte Moritz von Schwind zunächst an der Universität in Wien. 1821 begann er dennoch ein Studium an der örtlichen Kunstakademie und war bis 1822 Schüler des Historien- und Porträtmalers J.P. Krafft (1780-1856) und des Nazareners L.F. Schnorr von Carolsfeld (1788-1853). In Wien unterhielt er auch freundschaftlichen Kontakt zu Franz Schubert, Franz von Schober, Franz Grillparzer und dem Maler L. Kupelwieser (1796-1862). Auf Anraten von P. Cornelius (1783-1867) zog er 1828 nach München, wo er durch Vermittlung von Cornelius die Ausmalung des Bibliothekszimmers der bayerischen Königin mit Szenen aus Ludwig Tiecks Dichtung vornahm. 1835 reiste er nach Italien. Nach seiner Rückkehr schuf er Entwürfe für die Münchner Residenz und in der Burg Hohenschwangau. 1840 ging Schwind nach Karlsruhe, wo er für den Sitzungssaal des Karlsruher Ständehauses acht Rundmedaillons, für das Treppenhaus und die Erdgeschoß-Säle der Staatlichen Kunsthalle Fresken schuf. 1844 zog er nach Frankfurt am Main, wurde jedoch drei Jahre später als Professor an die Kunstakademie München berufen. 1855 wurde er in den Ritterstand erhoben. 1857 besuchte er London. 1866-1867 arbeitete er an der Ausmalung der neuerbauten Wiener Hofoper, für die Loggia und das Foyer.

        Entdeckungs-Reise in die Süd-See und nach der Berings-Strasse ... Unternommen in den Jahren 1815, 1816, 1817 und 1818... auf dem Schiffe Rurick

      Weimar: Gebruder Hoffmann, 1821. Three volumes bound in one, quarto; with six maps (five folding) and 20 engraved and aquatint plates (19 with original handcolouring and four double-page); contemporary quarter black roan, rebacked, gilt arms on cover of Ernst Augustus, King of Hanover. The second great Russian expedition to the Pacific. First edition of Kotzebue's account of his voyage, the second Russian scientific expedition and one of the great Pacific exploration accounts.The plates include two each of Alaska and Hawaii, and four of Micronesia. The aquatint plates are finely handcoloured (with the exception of the single engraved plate of the monkey-skull), and retain the quality of original watercolours. The third volume includes the fine coloured butterfly plates omitted from the English and Russian editions.This famous voyage narrative is particularly important for its descriptions of Alaska, California (including the first scientific account of the state flower, the Golden Poppy), Hawaii and Micronesia; Lada-Mocarski describes the account of Alaska as 'rich in early original source material'.The expedition 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 Rurik sailed along the California coast, stopping at San Francisco; Kotzebue describes the missions, and the work is considered one of the most important early accounts of the state. Kotzebue made a stop in Hawaii in November-December 1816, revisiting again in September-October 1817, anchoring off Hawaii and Oahu. The Hawaiian portion is extensive with important observations on life and customs during the reign of Kamehameha I, whose famous "red vest" portrait by Louis 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 native inhabitants and the work of the missionaries. There is also a comparative vocabulary table for languages of some of the islanders. As a record of historical import, and as a collection of significant maps and beautiful plates (most notably those of the butterflies), this work is one of the prime desiderata of Pacific voyages. '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).There were altogether three issues of this first edition, as noted by Forbes in the Hawaiian National Bibliography. This is an example of the second issue with the text printed upon laid paper and the plates coloured (the regular issue has the plates in sepia aquatint).

        Draft Letter Signed as Secretary of State

      Washington 1821 - Sixth President of the United States who also served with distinction as Senator, Secretary of State, Diplomat, and Minister to Great Britain. During his role as Minister to England, he drafted and wrote the Treaty of Ghent, which ended the War of 1812. As Secretary of State, he negotiated the Adams-Onis Treaty of 1818 and wrote the Monroe Doctrine, a thesis that took almost three years to complete before being presented to Congress. At the time this letter was written, France filed a grievance against the United States for seizing the vessel Jeune Eugenie off the coast of Africa. The vessel was believed to have been involved in the Slave trade and was boarded by American soldiers. 2 pages (front and back), 10 x 8 inches, Washington, August 17, 1821. Extraordinary and historically important unpublished draft letter signed as Secretary of State. Written to President James Monroe, residing at his personal estate in Shannondale Springs, cryptically addressing several complicated foreign policy issues that would become the foundation for the principles of the Monroe Doctrine, including the seizure of the French vessel Jeune Eugenie, Florida and the conclusion of the Adams-Onis Treaty, and Great Britain's desire for a strict interpretation of the Treaty of Ghent, etc. In full: "I send you by Express a note from the French Minister together with a draft which I have made of an answer to it, for your consideration. Should you approve it, with such amendments as you may think proper, I pray you to have the goodness, to send it back to me, that I may receive it if possible on Sunday. I had fixed on Monday for my departure - but if instead of the draft which I enclose (modified as you see fit) you think it will be more expedient to answer with less decision, and to continue the discussion with him at present, I will postpone my Northern tour and reply to him at leisure, and in such manner as you may direct. P.S. I enclose a letter from Baron Stackelberg the Charge d'affaires from Sweden. I would propose that a Proclamation should issue, declaring Norwegian Vessels entitled to the privileges accorded by the act of Congress of 3. March 1815. Two letters from General Jackson at Pensacola with enclosure a letter from General Peter B. Porter and a letter from Mr. Delafield, the agent to the Commission under the 6th and 7th articles of the Treaty of Ghent are likewise enclosed. One letter from James G. Forbes." On July 17, 1821, exactly four weeks before this draft was sent to President Monroe, the Spanish officially vacated Florida, concluding the Adams-Onis Treaty of 1818. General Jackson was appointed Territorial Governor, and the United States announced that it would no longer allow any infringement by a foreign power into the hemisphere. Great Britain soon thereafter asked for a clarification of the Treaty of Ghent due to several "questionable" actions committed in Florida by General Jackson, most notably the execution of two British merchants who were supplying weapons to the Spaniards and Seminoles. The Florida debacle would once and for all end Europe's influence in the hemisphere, and became the strongest argument in implementing the foundations of what would become the Monroe Doctrine. Boldly docketed on the back by James Monroe: "Aug. 17. 1821, Mr. Adams." Natural folds and light creasing, but still in very good(+) condition. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        A manual of chemistry; containing the principal facts of the science

      London: John Murray, 1821. Inscribed Dedication Copy Brande, William Thomas (1788-1866). A manual of chemistry; containing the principal facts of the science . . . 3 vols. xvi, 470, [2]; vii, 546, [2]; viii, 350, [106, index]pp. Frontispiece engraving and 3 engraved plates; wood-engraved text illustrations. London: John Murray, 1821. 216 x 133 mm. Quarter morocco, marbled boards in period style. Light toning throughout, some offsetting from plates, small ink-stains on one index page obscuring a few words of text, but very good. The Dedication Copy, Inscribed by Brande to dedicatee Charles Hatchett (1765-1847) on the flyleaf of the first volume: â??Charles Hatchett Esq. with the Authors very affectionate regards.â? Inscribed Dedication Copy of the second edition of Brandeâ??s Manual of Chemistry, greatly enlarged from the one-volume first edition (1819). Brande dedicated this edition to his father-in-law, the British chemist and mineralogist Charles Hatchett, who had introduced Brande the study of chemistry when the latter was in his early teens; Brandeâ??s dedication, dated May 1, 1821, is on the leaf following the title in Vol. I. Hatchett is best known for his discovery in 1801 of the metallic element now known as niobium; Brandeâ??s description of that element in his Manual notes that it â??was first discovered by Mr. Hatchett in a mineral from North Americaâ? (Vol. II, p. 229). Brande had a long and distinguished career as a chemist and educator. In 1813 he succeeded Humphry Davy as professor of chemistry at the Royal Institution, a post he held until 1852; while at the RI he developed a close relationship with Michael Faraday, who served for some years as Brandeâ??s assistant. Brande also was superintendent of the Royal Mintâ??s die department from the mid-1820s, and in 1854 became chief officer of the Mintâ??s coinage department. His Manual of Chemistry went through six editions and was the leading chemistry textbook of its day; he also wrote two well-regarded works on pharmacy, and edited the Dictionary of Science, Literature and Art (1842).`
