        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. "...in 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.

        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]

        John MacCulloch

      1821. Large Folio Manuscript, 15.5" X 9.5", 48 pages of an unpublished French translation of the introduction and the first two chapters of the famous John MacCulloch work, <I>"A Geological Classification of Rocks with a Descriptive Synopsis of the Species and Varieties, comprising the Elements of Practical Geology."</I> The book was published in 1821 in London. MacCulloch compiles a classification based on the Abraham Gottlob Werner work, but without sharing his opinions about the origin of the rocks and the method of their grouping. In the book, MacCulloch divided rocks into two main classes: Primary and Secondary. He subdivided Primary into unstratified (granite) and stratified (mainly gneisses and schists, with some sediments). The Secondary included all the younger sediments and a few 'unstratified' rocks, which his descriptions clearly indicate were igneous intrusions, although he did not specify them as such. Macculloch also described in detail the occurrences of basalt lava ('trap'), the remains of the extensive Tertiary basalt lava plateau off the west of Scotland" (DSB). Macculloch was one of the pioneers of British geology and mineralogy, and prepared the first geological map of Scotland. <br /><br />MacCulloch was a Scottish Geologist and was elected to the Royal Society in 1820 He continued to write papers, chiefly on the rocks and minerals of Scotland, and had at last gathered so large an amount of information that the government was prevailed upon in the year 1826 to employ him in the preparation of a geological map of Scotland. <br /><br />One part of the manuscript reads in part, <I>"the number of species and minerals essential has batch composition of the rocks essentremement finite', but of an authenticate rock . . . stores of the rest under tired . . . nature; . . . some feel, they are able the consider common constituent left the masses . . . draft ice these various minerals . . . sounds the object of the systems of mineralogie and one the there will . . . leave numerous authors that fail to compile traits of the subject . ."</I> The manuscript is written on Montgolfier watermarked paper and is in hand-bound stunning condition.

        KENILWORTH

      Edinburgh: Printed for Archibald Constable and John Ballantyne, 1821. FIRST EDITION, Second State. This is an attractive set of Scott's lauded Elizabethan historical novel, embellished with a great number of extra illustrations depicting members of the British ruling class, cultural figures, and various scenes and landscapes befitting the story's setting. Included among the portraits are over 30 of Queen Elizabeth and nearly 20 of the Author himself; other notable figures pictured here include John Evelyn, William Shakespeare, and Sir Walter Raleigh. The first English-language author to be recognized internationally in his lifetime, Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832) was, in the words of DNB, "a radical inventor of literary forms," including, especially, the modern historical novel. "Kenilworth" is one of his so-called Waverly novels, a series of fictional works written by Scott between 1814-32, most of which were set in the past and deal with conflict in one way or another. The plot of the present work centers on Robert Dudley, Earl of Leister, and Amy Robsart, whose marriage is kept hidden so that Dudley may win the favor of Elizabeth I. What unfolds is a classic tale of love versus ambition.. 187 x 117 mm. (7 1/4 x 4 1/2"). Three volumes. FIRST EDITION, Second State.

        A geographical and commmercial view of northern Central Africa: containing a particular account of the course and termination of the great River Niger in the Atlantic Ocean.

An uncommon account. M'Queen, the owner of plantations in Grenada in the West Indies, collected extensive information, principally from slaves but also from a study of Arab geographers,which led him correctly to the conclusion that the Niger ended in the great delta of the Blight of Benin. Not being a member of the geographical establishment, little notice was taken of his account at the time and many bizarre theories were put forward before M'Queen's thesis was accepted.

        Manuscript Cookbook of Henrietta Butler Smith, the third wife, of American Missionary Eli Smith, with her Daguerreotype portrait

      quarto, 13 pages, plus blanks, bound in early 19th century ¼ red leather and marbled boards, binding worn rubbed and scuffed, contemporary ownership signature: "Elizabeth Butler's Book 1821", on front pastedown, Elizabeth Butler was Henrietta's mother. Laid in are 13 receipts and notes, including two letters containing recipes from Henrietta's sisters Maria and Sarah, and a newspaper clipping with Henrietta Butler's remedy for cholera which she devised in Syria, plus additional recipes and 20th century notes from Henrietta Smith's granddaughter, a Mrs. Thomas Russell, of New Haven, with information and comments on the volume, she states in one note that the volume contains "some Syrian receipts". Some spotting and foxing to text, two leaves are torn across. The cookbook is accompanied by a sixth plate daguerreotype portrait of Henrietta Smith, (see image above). The image is in good condition, case rubbed, cover detached but present. Probably taken circa 1846 when Henrietta and Eli Smith were married. This manuscript cook book contains 69 recipes, not counting the inlaid receipts, which brings the total number of recipes to 91, primarily cakes and cookies. A wide variety of cakes are noted, sometimes different variations of the same cake. In many cases the name of the woman providing the recipe is noted. Most of the women are from the Northampton, Massachusetts area where Elizabeth and Henrietta lived. There are several recipes for plumb cake, loaf cake, sponge cake, wedding cakes, Federal Cake, Hartford Election Cake, Wine Cake, "Travelling Cake", "Delicate Cake", several varieties of gingerbread, "Harrison Cake", "dyspeptic bread" and Isinglass jelly. There are also receipts for curing hams and a "pickle for beef" as well as a "cement for glass wood etc." The cookbook was evidently passed down from Elizabeth Butler to her daughter Henrietta. Henrietta "Hetty" S. Butler was born September 15, 1816 in Massachusetts, she married Eli Smith in 1846, and died July 26, 1893, in Lyons, Ionia County, Michigan, she was the daughter of Daniel Butler (1768-1833) and Elizabeth Simpkins Butler (1774-1849). Daniel Butler, Henrietta's father, was born March 27, 1768 in Hartford, Connecticut, and died September 13, 1833 in Northampton, Massachusetts. Butler was a merchant in Northampton. Elizabeth Simpkins, Henrietta's mother, was born in 1774 in Massachusetts, and died September 11, 1849. Elizabeth Simpkins was a native of Boston. She was the daughter of John Simpkins (1740-1831) and Mehitable Torrey Kneeland (1738-1817). Elizabeth married Daniel Butler and together they had at least seven children, Henrietta was the couple's sixth child, born in 1816. Henrietta married Eli Smith in 1846, she was his third wife, together they had five children. "Eli Smith (1801-1857), American missionary and Orientalist. Smith was born in Northford, Connecticut, and graduated from Yale with a B.A. in 1821. In 1826 he graduated from Andover Theological Seminary, was ordained, and was sent by the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions (ABCFM) to superintend the ABCFM printing press at Malta. Already competent in Greek, Latin and Hebrew, and having some knowledge of French German and Italian, he later learned Turkish and Armenian. Determined to master Arabic, he went to Beirut for language study, returning to Malta in 1827. In 1829 he accompanied Rufus Anderson in exploring mission possibilities in Greece, and in 1830, accompanied by H. G. O. Dwight, he began a 16 month journey of exploration reported in Researches of the Rev. E. Smith and Rev. H. G. O. Dwight in Armenia: Including a Journey through Asia Minor and into Georgia and Persia, with a visit to the Nestorian and Chaldean Christians of Oormiah and Salmas, 2 vols. (1833). While in the United States (1832-1833) he married Sarah L. Huntington, returning with her to Beirut in 1834. Equipped with a new press, Smith quickly began to produce materials in Arabic, including schoolbooks, Scripture portions, a hymnbook, catechisms, translations of religious classics, and his own and other missionaries' writings. He also published classics of Arabic literature, thereby contributing significantly to the renaissance of Arab culture. Intent on producing works of the highest quality, Smith designed a new typeface which became known as American Arabic. He shared actively in all the business of the mission, preached daily, and made a journey of exploration to Hauran in 1834 and undertook other journeys in 1838 and 1852 with Edward Robinson, who published Biblical Researches in Palestine..., 3 vols. (1841). Smith devoted his last ten years to the translation of the Bible into Arabic, a project completed after his death by C. V. A Van Dyke. Smith lost his first wife in 136; in 1841 he married Maria Chapin, who died within a year. He then married Henrietta Butler in 1846 and with her had three daughters and two sons. He died in Beirut."

        Antique Print-KESTREL-MALE-BIRDS OF PREY-FALCON-Selby-1821

      - Plate XVII: 'Kestril - Male.' This plate shows a male Kestrel. 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. Light foxing and some spots, mainly in the margins. Please study scan carefully. Storage location: DP-P5-09 The overall size is ca. 19.3 x 24.4 inch. The image size is ca. 10.6 x 16.1 inch. The overall size is ca. 49 x 62 cm.

        Manuscript Land Grant to Nathan Elliott in Van Diemens Land

      Sydney: 25 July 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. It was listed on the National Trust Tasmanian Heritage Register, which describes it as "Single storey stone house with hipped roof with boxed eaves and return verandah on three sides. The front has 3 bays separated by pilasters, a central 4-panel timber door with fanlight and half sidelights and large 12 pane windows either side. Includes stone barn and stables"

      II, 179 S.. 8. OBroschur. Broschur bestoßen, gerändert, mit Knickfalte und am Rücken mit Einriss nicht beschitten und nicht aufgeschnitten. Auf dem Innenspiegel mit dem Exlibris der Bibliothek Rudolf Virchow Virchow (1821-1902), Anthropologe und Mediziner, hat durch seine Arbeiten zur Zytologie nichts weniger als einen quasi kopernikanischen Paradigmenwechsel in der Medizin ausgelöst. Sechenov (1829-1905) hat auf seinem Studienaufenthalt 1856-59 in Deutschland (Berlin, Leipzig, Heidelberg) u. a. neben Helmholtz, Du Bois-Reymond auch Virchow kennen gelernt mit vorliegendem Werk wurde er zum Begründer der modernen russischen Physiologie. Das Werk selbst (EA 1866) war zunächst nach Erscheinen verboten, weil es als Angriff auf die öffentliche Moral empfunden wurde. Indem Sechenov auch 'höhere' Bewußtseinsprozesse strikt kausalistisch und naturalistisch auf materiale Ursachen im Organ des Hirns zurückführt, kann seine Arbeit als Versuch gewertet werden, 'Gott' oder außerhalb des biologischen Subjekts liegende letzte Ursachen für Bewußtseinsinhalte aus der Wissenschaft zu eskamotieren.

        ST. VINCENT, WEST INDIES MSS. / SLAVERY / PLANTATIONS: "VIEW OF THE PROSPECT PLANTATION, THE PROPERTY OF SIR WILLIAM STRUTH ST. VINCENT WI 1821 TO SIR WILLIAM FROM AN OLD FRIEND IN S.V. - 25 JULY 1821."

      Manuscript, brown ink on wove paper (Very Good, some minor remains of former album backing to verso), irregular dimensions (due to protruding title register), maximum: 22.7 x 28 cm (8.75 x 11 inches). - [St. Vincent, W.I.], 1821. A well-executed and highly attractive manuscript view of Prospect Plantation, St. Vincent, presented to Sir William Struth, the estate&#146;s proprietor and subsequently the island&#146;s governor; a unique and historically important graphic artifact from the twilight of slavery in the British West Indies. - This beautifully rendered original pen and ink drawing captures Prospect Plantation, one of St. Vincent&#146;s prime estates, as it appeared in 1821, during the island&#146;s last great sugar boom. The property was owned by Sir William Struth, the former mayor of Bristol and the future Acting Governor of St. Vincent. The view is taken from a perspective looking southwest, from a height above the plantation, which is location on the southernmost tip of St. Vincent. Prospect&#146;s Great House, windmill (for grinding cane) and supply buildings occupy the top of a rise, surrounded by palms, while the cane fields cover the slopes below. The sea beyond features several sailing vessels, while Bequia, the northernmost of the Grenadines, about ten kilometres distant, appears in the background. The anonymous artist, who dedicated the work to Struth in the lower register, was clearly not a professional draftsman, yet managed to create a highly attractive work, in the style of a line engraving. Sir William would certainly have treasured this gift from "an old friend". Prospect&#146;s original wooden plantation buildings, as depicted on the present view, do not survive, having perished during the later 19th Century. However, the Prospect name lives on to this day as one of St. Vincent&#146;s prime residential and vacation areas, conveniently located only a few kilometres from the island&#146;s capital, Kingstown. Original manuscript drawings of West Indian plantations from the slavery era are today extremely rare, and the present work is especially well executed, depicting a particularly important property. The survival rate of such works is incredibly low, and the present view was preserved only because it seems to have been formerly pasted into an album. St. Vincent is a relatively small (345 km2 (133 sq. miles)), yet fertile island, part of the Windward Islands of the West Indies. It was first colonized by France in 1719, but was ceded to Britain, in 1763, following the Seven Years&#146; War. An initial orgy of property speciation on St. Vincent was cut short, as for much of the next three decades Britain&#146;s control of the island was hotly contested by both France and the native Carib peoples. It was only in 1796, that firm and permanent British control of St. Vincent was established. For the next 40 years St. Vincent supported a thriving plantation economy, producing sugar, coffee, tobacco, indigo and corn, albeit supported by the ignoble institution of slavery. The plantations generated immense wealth for Britain, grossly in excess of what one might expect from St. Vincent&#146;s size and population. However, the plantation economy collapsed following the abolition of slavery (phased in between 1834 and 1838), although manumission gave the majority of St. Vincent&#146;s residents some level of freedom for the first time. Prospect Plantation&#146;s proprietor, Sir William Struth (1763 - 1850), was for many years a major figure in both St. Vincent and in his native West Country of England. He was a very wealthy Tory politician, landowner and merchant. Based in Bristol, a major port for West Indian trade, Struth&#146;s first major Caribbean landholdings were the Clifton Hill and Endeavour plantations in Trinidad, which he purchased in 1802, and subsequently flipped for great profits. He used the proceeds to purchase a fine estate at Redlands, Gloucestershire, and to advance his local standing. He was elected to the Bristol city council in 1812, and served as the city&#146;s mayor from 1814 to 1815. Struth was knighted in 1815. Shortly after giving up his mayoral chain, Struth purchased at least three major plantation properties in St. Vincent: Fancy, Richmond Hill and Prospec

        A primavera. Cantata. Impressa no Tomo VI Parte 1 das Memorias da Academia das Sciencias de Lisboa em 1819.

      Lisbon, Na Typografia da [Real] Academia das Sciencias, 1821. - 4 works in 1 volume. Large 4° (25.4 x 19.4 cm.), contemporary marbled wrappers (spine rather defective). Woodcut arms of the Real Academia das Sciencias de Lisboa on title page. Light foxing. Overall in very good condition. 15 pp. *** Second separate edition of A primavera, and first separate editions of the three following works, published as reprints from the Memorias of the Real Academia das Sciencias de Lisboa. Villela Barbosa (1769-1846), a native of Rio de Janeiro, studied at Coimbra and became professor of mathematics at the Academia Real de Marinha. When he wrote the three Discursos in this volume, in 1821, he was Vice-Secretario of the Academia Real das Sciencias. He served in the Côrtes of 1821 but returned to Brazil when the Parliament concluded in 1823, and became one of the three negotiators of the 1825 treaty recognizing Brazilian independence. He later served as Senador, Conselheiro de Estado, Coronel de Engenheiros, and several times as Ministro de Estado. Created 1.º Visconde de Paranaguá by the Brazilian Emperor D. Pedro I in 1825, and 1.º Marquês in 1826, Villela Barbosa is best known for his poetry, such as Poemas, Coimbra, 1794, and Primavera, Lisbon 1821, but also published several popular geometry textbooks.*** Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 75: citing an 1819 reprint from the Memorias of the Academia; and Período colonial p. 54, citing this edition, correcting Sacramento Blake's comments on the editions, and quoting Innocêncio that only 50 offprints (sic; i.e. reprints) were produced. Sacramento Blake III, 136. Innocêncio III, 82: states that while Villela Barbosa is not a poet of the first rank, "cabe-lhe de justiça um logar distincto entre os poetas do Brasil; e na opinião de judiciosos criticos mostra em suas composições mais imaginação, mais força, e estylo mais poetico que o seu compatriota e contemporaneo José Bonifacio d'Andrade."

        Prinzessin Brambilla. IV, 310 S., 1 Bl. Druckfehler, IV S. Anzeigen. Mit 8 Kupfern in Sepiamanier nach Callot'schen Orig.-Blättern (von C. F. Thiele). Hellbrauner bedruckter Orig.-Pappband mit farb. Rückenschild (Kanten und Kapitale leicht berieben).

      Breslau, Josef Max, 1821. - Erste Ausgabe, im bedruckten Orig.-Lieferungspappband. Das Werk wurde angeregt von Callots phantastischen Blättern zu Commedia dell'arte-Szenen; acht Radierungen sind beigegeben. Auch Anlehnungen an Goethes 'Das Römische Carneval' sind erkennbar. Die Handlung beginnt am Vorabend des römischen Karnevals. Das sich entwickelnde Ineinander von alltäglicher Liebesgeschichte, Maskentreiben und phantastischem Geschehen in einem mythischen Fabelreich wird zum Strukturprinzip: Das "bunte Maskenspiel eines tollen märchenhaften Spaßes" hetzt "allerlei Gestalten in immer schnelleren und schnelleren Kreisen dermaßen durcheinander, daß man sie . gar nicht mehr zu unterscheiden vermag." "Die ältere literarische Forschung lehnte das Capriccio als überspannt und uneinheitlich ab; mittlerweile ist es jedoch als eines der bedeutendsten Werke humoristischer Erzählkunst gewürdigt" (KNLL). &#150; Kleiner gekrönter Initialstempel auf dem Titel unten. Exlibris Jean Furstenberg (Hans Fürstenberg) und ein weiteres älteres Exlibris. Leicht stockfleckig, unbeschnitten. Mit den Hemdchen vor den Illustrationen. &#150; Goed. VIII 496, 54; Salomon 144.
