        The Kastallian Spring. "The Kastallian Spring

      Greece: London Rodwell & Martin. 1821. Aquatint view of the Kastallian spring, Delphi from the Deluxe edition of Dodwell's "Views in Greece". Original hand colour, mounted on card with title caption to verso. The view shows the pool of the spring with the high cliffs behind, upon which is built the small chapel of St John, two figures appear to be fishing in the pool. Bright and clean. Edward Dodwell (1767 1832) was an Irish painter, traveller, antiquary and a writer on archaeology. Educated at Trinity College Cambridge. Dodwell travelled to Greece in 1801 in company with Sir William Gell touring the Ionian Islands and the Troad, In 1805-6 when he was allowed leave of absence to travel by the government of Bonaparte, in whose hands he was a prisoner, he returned to Greece accompanied by the Italian artist Simone Pomardi, touring mainland Greece and the Ionian Islands meeting again with Sir William Gell towards the end of the tour. During this second tour he and Pomardi produced around 1000 drawings which would become the basis for A Classical and Topographical Tour through Greece during the years 1801, 1805 and 1806 published in 1819, the work was dedicated to Le Chevalier who had arranged his parole. "The Dodwell-Pomardi practice was to draw freehand on the spot if the landscape or ruin was condensed into a particular feature rather than an extensive view, often in pen in grey or sepia ink and wash if by Pomardi, and more roughly in pencil if by Dodwell; much more deliberate drawing followed, with the assistance of the camera obscura if a more detailed and complex composition was required ?" without it, Pomardi and Dodwell would have produced far fewer illustrations. The finished drawings were developed later, in Italy, from a compilation of outlines, sketches and precise notes; on these, both men worked together in a concerted campaign to reach a definitive publishable stage, probably with the assistance of other artists," [ Brian Sewell ;"In Search of Classical Greece: Travel Drawings of Edward Dodwell And Simone Pomardi 1805-1806," British Museum - exhibition review] The Classical Tour is illustrated with lithographs of the drawings as the intended aquatint illustrations proved too expensive to produce. Thirty aquatint plates were chosen to be issued separately as Views in Greece published in 1821. Dodwell settled in Italy after his return, living chiefly in Naples and Rome. He had amassed a large collection of ancient artifacts including the well-known Dodwell Vase with a representation of a boar-hunt; at his death the collection consisted of over 1000 pieces and even more mineral specimens; the collection of vases is now in the possession of the Munich Glyptothek He died in Rome from the effects of an illness contracted in 1830 during a visit of exploration to the Sabine Mountains. His last work, "Views and Descriptions of Cyclopian or Pelasgic Remains in Italy and Greece", was published posthumously" in 1834. " Dodwell and Pomardi, like many travellers, chose to go beyond the established Mediterranean regions of the Grand Tour. The understanding these travellers brought to the archaeological remains of ancient Greece encouraged the taste among British Hellenists for Greek architecture. This gave new vigour to the Greek Revival, already begun in the middle of the 18th century by the expeditions of the Society of Dilettanti. Hellenism, the love of ancient Greece, was to promote a new movement of Philhellenism, a sympathy for modern Greek people and a desire to realise the dream, as Byron put it, "that Greece might still be free."

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

      John Murray, London 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: "Charles Hatchett Esq. with the Authors very affectionate regards." Inscribed Dedication Copy of the second edition of Brande’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; Brande’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; Brande’s description of that element in his Manual notes that it "was first discovered by Mr. Hatchett in a mineral from North America" (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 Brande’s assistant. Brande also was superintendent of the Royal Mint’s die department from the mid-1820s, and in 1854 became chief officer of the Mint’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).` [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

With a portrait frontispiece. In the publishers original boards. Alvise Luigi Cornaro (14671566) was a Venetian nobleman who wrote treatises on dieting, including Discorsi della Vita Sobria (Discourses on the Sober Life). Finding himself near death at the age of 35, Cornaro modified his eating habits on the advice of his doctors and began to adhere on a calorie restriction diet. Fourteen ounces of solid food and seventeen ounces of wine was the daily allowance he allowed for himself initially. He later reduced his daily food intake to no more solid meat than an egg. His first treatise was written when he was eighty-three, and its English translation, often referred to today under the title The Sure and Certain Method of Attaining a Long and Healthful Life, went through numerous editions; this was followed by three others on the same subject, composed at the ages of eighty-six, ninety-one and ninety-five respectively. Condition: In original paper covered boards with paper spine label. Externally worn, front jointheld by the cords onlyand some loss to the backstrip. Internally, generally firmly bound.

All four poems are by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749- 1832). Re "Schmp" ("Schubert manu propria = Schubert by my own hand" The question whether of not Schubert himself signed the copies of his early editions (opp. 1-7, 12-14, and 96) has been hotly debated. Otto Erich Deutsch and Georg Kinsky took the authenticity of these signatures for granted, but Ernst Hilmar ("Anmerkungen zu Franz Schuberts Erstdrucken" in Florilegium musicologicum: Hellmut Federhofer zum 75.

While his verdict on the signatures to Schubert's opp. 12-14 has been generally accepted, other scholars continue to defend their authenticity. "Schäfers Klagelied" was the first of Schubert's songs to receive a public performance, on February 28, 1819.

      Chez Jean, Marchand d'Estampes 1821 With 2 title pages, 1 engraved allegorical, and the other letterpress. With 33 engraved plates. Contemporary morocco - backed marbled boards; light offsetting, but an excellent copy from the library of A. Kuhnholtz with his signed bookplate by J. Dupont. Later edition. Cousin's treatise on anatomy contains many wonderful plates illustrating the proportions of different aspects of the body. It includes the head, face, limbs, torso and full figures of males, females and children. All muscles are noted and some of the plates are depicted in perspective. Cousin (c.1522 - 94), with his father (1490 - 1560), were French painters and engravers of the Renaissance. They were famous for their work in stained glass and tapestry designs. This work, now attributed to the younger Cousin, was first printed in 1560. "His considerable reputation as a designer of woodcuts for the Paris printers has been developed chiefly by comparison of details from this volume" (see Mortimer, French, I, 157 & 158, who notes that this work is insufficiently documented).

        Lake of Stymphalos "Lake of Stymphalos in Arcadia

      Greece: London Rodwell & Martin. 1821. Aquatint view of the Lake of Stymphalos from the Deluxe edition of Dodwell's "Views in Greece". Original hand colour, mounted on card with title caption to verso The view shows the small lake upon whose shores can be seen vestiges of the ancient city of Stymphalos, once one of the largest towns in Arkadia, founded by Elatos son of Arkas. Dodwell explains that the lake is fed by two streams or springs, of which the Fountain of Stymphalos at the foot of Mount Cyllene is the most noted. The waters escape from the lake by means of a katabothra or subterranean passages; the underground river emerging at Argos where it is named Erasines, finally meeting the Argolic gulf through the marshes of Lerna. Dodwell then mentions that the lake was the site of one of the labours of Hercules the slaying of the man-eating Stymphalian birds, and comments that he obviously did his work well as there are now only ducks and common wild fowl at the lake. Bright and clean. Edward Dodwell (1767 1832) was an Irish painter, traveller, antiquary and a writer on archaeology. Educated at Trinity College Cambridge. Dodwell travelled to Greece in 1801 in company with Sir William Gell touring the Ionian Islands and the Troad, In 1805-6 when he was allowed leave of absence to travel by the government of Bonaparte, in whose hands he was a prisoner, he returned to Greece accompanied by the Italian artist Simone Pomardi, touring mainland Greece and the Ionian Islands meeting again with Sir William Gell towards the end of the tour.

        Carte De L' Amerique Septentrionale...

      Paris: 1821. Double page map (24" x 18"), outlined in color of North America. Some foxing and darkening at centerfold and margins, margins ample, but are a little rough on the right side; otherwise very good. Tardieu (1788-1841) was an important French cartographer, and produced to highly respected maps of America. This is a very interesting and attractive map of North America, which continues to show the remnants of French and Spanish areas in what is now Missouri and Arkansas. The map also shows Mexico in control of the Southwest and California. Another interesting aspect of this map is its highlighting of Indian tribes.

        West front of the Parthenon. "West Front of the Parthenon and the Erectheion from the Propylea

      Greece: London Rodwell & Martin. 1821. Aquatint view of the Parthenon from the Deluxe edition of Dodwell's "Views in Greece". Original hand colour, mounted on card with title caption to verso The view showing the West front of the Parthenon, and the Erectheion, with the surrounding houses of the garrison; a small mosque can just be glimpsed within the walls of the Temple. in the background is the hill of Lykabettos and Mount Ymettos is massed behind the Temple. Image generally bright and clean but spotting to surrounding card upon which it is mounted. Edward Dodwell (1767 1832) was an Irish painter, traveller, antiquary and a writer on archaeology. Educated at Trinity College Cambridge. Dodwell travelled to Greece in 1801 in company with Sir William Gell touring the Ionian Islands and the Troad, In 1805-6 when he was allowed leave of absence to travel by the government of Bonaparte, in whose hands he was a prisoner, he returned to Greece accompanied by the Italian artist Simone Pomardi, touring mainland Greece and the Ionian Islands meeting again with Sir William Gell towards the end of the tour. During this second tour he and Pomardi produced around 1000 drawings which would become the basis for A Classical and Topographical Tour through Greece during the years 1801, 1805 and 1806 published in 1819, the work was dedicated to Le Chevalier who had arranged his parole. "The Dodwell-Pomardi practice was to draw freehand on the spot if the landscape or ruin was condensed into a particular feature rather than an extensive view, often in pen in grey or sepia ink and wash if by Pomardi, and more roughly in pencil if by Dodwell; much more deliberate drawing followed, with the assistance of the camera obscura if a more detailed and complex composition was required ?" without it, Pomardi and Dodwell would have produced far fewer illustrations. The finished drawings were developed later, in Italy, from a compilation of outlines, sketches and precise notes; on these, both men worked together in a concerted campaign to reach a definitive publishable stage, probably with the assistance of other artists," [ Brian Sewell ;"In Search of Classical Greece: Travel Drawings of Edward Dodwell And Simone Pomardi 1805-1806," British Museum - exhibition review] The Classical Tour is illustrated with lithographs of the drawings as the intended aquatint illustrations proved too expensive to produce. Thirty aquatint plates were chosen to be issued separately as Views in Greece published in 1821. Dodwell settled in Italy after his return, living chiefly in Naples and Rome. He had amassed a large collection of ancient artifacts including the well-known Dodwell Vase with a representation of a boar-hunt; at his death the collection consisted of over 1000 pieces and even more mineral specimens; the collection of vases is now in the possession of the Munich Glyptothek He died in Rome from the effects of an illness contracted in 1830 during a visit of exploration to the Sabine Mountains. His last work, "Views and Descriptions of Cyclopian or Pelasgic Remains in Italy and Greece", was published posthumously" in 1834. " Dodwell and Pomardi, like many travellers, chose to go beyond the established Mediterranean regions of the Grand Tour. The understanding these travellers brought to the archaeological remains of ancient Greece encouraged the taste among British Hellenists for Greek architecture. This gave new vigour to the Greek Revival, already begun in the middle of the 18th century by the expeditions of the Society of Dilettanti. Hellenism, the love of ancient Greece, was to promote a new movement of Philhellenism, a sympathy for modern Greek people and a desire to realise the dream, as Byron put it, "that Greece might still be free." [Catalogue British Museum "In Search of Classical Greece: Travel Drawings of Edward Dodwell And Simone Pomardi 1805-1806,"] Simone Pomardi 1757-1830 Little is known of him ?" nothing between records of his birth in 1757 and his settling in an artists' neighbourhood in Rome in 1783, nothing of his training and the influences to which he may have been subject, and from a working life of more than half a century, fewer than 50 works independent of Dodwell are known, their subjects mostly the antiquities of Rome. He would publish his own work about the travel with Dodwell "Viaggio nella Grecia fatto negli anni 1804, 1805 e 1806 "published in Rome in 1820 by Vincenzo Poggioli often using the same illustrations.

Deutsch p. 84. Deutsch: Schuberts Goethe-Lieder, 2a. Hoboken 13, 9. Hirsch IV, 474. Heck 18. Re "Schmp" ("Schubert manu propria = Schubert by my own hand") The question whether of not Schubert himself signed the copies of his early editions (opp. 1-7, 12-14, and 96) has been hotly debated. Otto Erich Deutsch and Georg Kinsky took the authenticity of these signatures for granted, but Ernst Hilmar ("Anmerkungen zu Franz Schuberts Erstdrucken" in Florilegium musicologicum: Hellmut Federhofer zum 75. Geburtstag, ed. Christoph-Hellmut Mahling, pp. 145-54) challenged this view and posited that all such signatures are in different hands. While his verdict on the signatures to Schubert's opp. 12-14 has been generally accepted, other scholars continue to defend their authenticity. The text is from Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's drama Faust.

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

      1821 - An Event That Advanced a Successful Movement to Reduce the Number of Capital Crimes in Massachusetts [Broadside]. [Execution]. [Salem, Massachusetts]. Execution of Stephen Merrill Clark, Which Took Place on Winter Island, Salem, On Thursday, May 10, 1821. Salem, MA?: S.n., 1821. 17-3/4" x 11" broadside. Text in four columns enclosed by black rules, small woodcut of a coffin below headline, untrimmed edges. Light browning, fold lines, a few unobtrusive repairs, a few tiny dampspots. A rare item * In 1820 Clark burned down a barn. There was no loss of life, but he was tried for a capital crime, found guilty and sentenced to death. The jury recommended commutation to no avail. He was sixteen years of age when he committed the crime, seventeen when executed. His case helped to advance a successful movement to reduce the number of capital crimes. By 1852 only murder remained as a capital offense. OCLC locates 4 copies (at Yale Law School, the New-York Historical Society, the Massachusetts Historical Society and the Vermont Historical Society). We located another copy at the American Antiquarian Society. Cohen lists this item but notes that he didn't handle a copy; his entry based on a dealer's catalogue. Cohen also notes another broadside, again unseen, a 16-page pamphlet at Harvard Law School, and a 63-page report of the trial, at Yale Law School. Curiously, there is nothing for Clark in McDade, which is surprising given the contemporary and long-term importance of the case. These omissions in McDade suggest the rarity of these four accounts.

The plates of the present work were taken from Trattinnik's never finished 'Archiv der Gewächskunde' for which he had prepared some 800 plates, but which were for the greater part not used for that work. A copy without any foxing to the plates.Nissen BBI, 1983. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
